Gurus of Peace

Words have magic in them. They Inspire. They Bless. They Soften Hearts. They Break Hearts. They are powerful and they have to be used with Care. The magic of words in song lyrics has been extensive. I'll give an example with the song 'Gurus of Peace' by A.R.Rahman and late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

चन्दा सूरज लाखों तारे हैं जब तेरे ही ये सारे
किस बात पे होती है फिर टकरार
खींची है लकीरें जिस ज़मीन पे पर ना खींचो देखो
बीच में दो दिलों के ये दीवारें
दुनिया में कहीँ भी, दर्द से कोई भी
तड़पे तो हमको यहाँ पे

एहसास उसके ज़ख्मों का होके
अपना भी दिल भर भर आये रोएं आंखें

When the Sun, Moon and the Billion Stars belong to you
Why are there so many quarrels then?
The lines of control have been drawn on the ground
Do not create walls between hearts
When any person anywhere is in pain for any reason
We feel the same and our heart cries out too for them

दूरी क्यों दिलों में रहे फासले क्यों बढते रहे
प्यारी है जिन्दगी है प्यारा जहाँ
रिश्ते बड़ी मुश्किलों से बनते है यहाँ पे लेकिन
टूटने के लिए बस एक ही लम्हा

Why is there so much distance between our hearts
Life is beautiful, this world is beautiful
It's so hard to create relationships here but
It takes only a moment to break them

इश्क गवा है हर एक दर्द कि
ज़ंजीर इश्क है हर एक रिश्ते कि
इश्क साड़ी हदों को तोड़ डालें
इश्क तो दुनिया को पल में मिटा भी दे
इश्क है जो सारे जहाँ को अमन भी दे
रौनक इश्क से है सारे आलम कि

Love is witness to every pain
Love is the link to every relationship
Love can break down all walls
Love can either break down this whole world
Or it can join together this whole world
It's love that makes everything shine around us

So what are u waiting for another day another talk
Somewhere we have to find a new way to peace
What are you waiting for another sign another call
Somewhere we have to find a new way to peace!!
