Masarrat – Happiness/joy

Tum masarrat* ka kaho ya ise gham ka rishtaa

Kahte hain pyaar ka rishtaa hai janam ka rishtaa

Hai janam ka jo ye rishtaa toh badaltaa kyon hai ?

An Approximate Translation :

Call it a relationship of happiness or sadness,

They say the relationship of love is a relationship since birth,

If it is a relationship since birth then why does it change?

Kaifi Azmi has written this soulful piece sung by Jagjit Singh, which encompasses the word Masarrat.

Below is the song from the film Arth (English: Meaning) directed by Mahesh Bhatt in 1982. The above verse (which uses the word Masarrat) is in the last stanza of this song.
