thanks. I guess that song was not in correct context then. No one is turning his/her back here. Sorry Sam and The One.

After changing my life completely, don't turn your back on me, my sweetheart.

You have stolen my heart now dont steal my vision (Nazar)
You have changed my life now dont change yourself.

Actually, it is a very romantic song where hero profess his solemn love for the lady.

Totally offtopic but a very funny translation of this song is at Translation of Chura Liya Hai from movie Yaadon Ki Baraat

Whoever has translated it, just translated hindi words to the english without even thinking what it does to the whole sentence. After reading the following line, I am laughing out loud here. This has got to be the most hilarious translation.

Hindi: Ho, sajaaoonga lutkar bhi tere badan ki daali ko
English: Oh, I will decorate your body's branch

Hindi: Lahoo jigar ka doonga haseen labon ki laali ko
English: I will give my heart's blood to your lovely red lips

*nazar nahin churana* is an idiom which means either *avoid looking directly at someone* or *to avoid someone*

BTW the shocked smiley in my first post was about the fact that you didn't know about this extremely famous song and not about the choice of song itself. Like I said before, it is a very romantic song.

Romantic notion but a bit extreme I think. Even if T-O has the red lips, and Sam, a huge wonderous heart.

Isn't this thread going a bit astray?

To be on topic, the first lady(if I may call TheOne that) still does not have a name.

Wow, this thread is 8 pages already.
Welcome aboard TheOne.

Remember, we drive on the wrong (left) side of the road here, and if need be, on the right (right) side as well. haha.

navin,

Perfect song for the occassion. And it doesn't matter if you do not know the meaning - you simply have to feel the emotion.

This is fantastic !!! One of the LONGEST introduction threads I'd say. Goes to show Sam's popularity amongst the whole T-Bhp community.

People fishing for apt songs - others translating them to English. TheOne you have definately got one of the warmest welcome on board this car crazy forum !!!

Welcome & have fun. All the best


Cheers

Nope. It means I will give blood from my LIVER.

Interestingly, most references to love and romance in Indian languages talk about the liver more than the heart (Jigar in Hindi, Karal in Malayalam, etc) - we refer to love from the depths of the liver than from the bottom of the heart. The fascination with the heart is a western one though we do have references to the heart too. I dont know the reason for this - probably the fact that the liver purifies blood while the heart is only the pump?

Now that is really really beautiful. Thanks for that translation Navin! Some people may complain about the German entries popping up all of a sudden but I think Hindi is far more complicated lol. Without help I wouldn't be able to understand a word, neither have I found any translation websites yet But I am quite sure they would not even be really useful even if there was, as I experienced again and again that Hindi is obviously a very... hm, how to call it... poetic language?!
