Yeh Kya Jagah Hai Doston

Lyrics by Shahryar

ye kya jagah hai dosto ye kaun sa dayaar hai
had-e-nigaah tak jahaan gubaar hi gubaar hai

Dayaar: Place, Residence
Had: At Most, Barrier, Boundary, Edge, Landmark, Limit, Quantity
Had-e-Nigaah: As Far As The Eye Can See
Gubaar: Dirt, Dust

ye kis maqaam par hayaat mujhko leke aagayi
na bas khushi pe hai jahaan na gham pe ikhtiyar hai

Maqaam: Abnormal, Basis, Dwelling, Location, Locus, Occasion, Opposite, Place, Position, Rank, Station
Hayaat: Biography, Existence, Life, World
Ikhtiyaar: Authority, Choice, Control, Influence, Option, Power, Right, To Accept

tamaam umr ka hisaab maangti hai zindagi
ye mera dil kahe to kya ke khud se sharmsaar hai

Tamaam: All, Complete, End, Entire, Finish, Perfect, Total, Whole
Hisaab: Reckoning, Account, Computation, Rate, Sense
Sharm-saar: Abashed, Ashamed

na jiski shakl hai koi na jiska naam hai koi
ek aisi shae ka kyun hamein azal se intezaar hai

Shakl: Aspect, Appearance, Diagram, Form, Image, Likeness, Model, Way
Shae: Object, Thing
Azal: Eternity, Without Beginning, Supreme
Intezaar: Await, Expectation, Lurch, Waiting (Anxiously)

bula raha hai kaun mujhko chilmanon ke us taraf
mere liye bhi kya koi udaas beqaraar hai

Chilman: Curtain
Be-qaraar: Uneasy, Restless, Unsettled
