With the help of Gulzar saab’s wonderful words, Urduwallahs wishes everyone a very Happy New Year!

आहिस्ता चल ज़िन्दगी, अभी कई क़र्ज़ चुकाना बाकी है.
कुछ दर्द मिटाना बाकी है, कुछ फ़र्ज़ निभाना बाकी है.
रफ़्तार में तेरे चलने से कुछ रूठ गए, कुछ छूट गए.
रूठों को मनाना बाकी है, रोतों को हसाना बाकी है.
कुछ हसरतें अभी अधूरी हैं, कुछ काम भी अभी ज़रूरी हैं.
ख्वाहिशें जो घुट गयीं इस दिल में, उनको दफ़नाना बाकी है.
कुछ रिश्ते बन कर टूट गए, कुछ जुड़ते जुड़ते छूट गए.
उन टूटे छूटे रिश्तों के ज़ख्मों को मिटाना बाकी है.
तू आगे चल मैं आता हूँ, क्या छोड़ तुझे भी पाउँगा?
इन साँसों पर हक़ है जिनका, उनको समझाना बाकी है.
आहिस्ता चल ज़िन्दगी, अभी कई क़र्ज़ चुकाना बाकी है….

Go slow, life, some debts are still to be paid
Some wounds are still to be forgotten,
Some duties are still to be fulfilled
In keeping up with your pace of life, some were troubled, some were left behind
The troubled need to be wooed back
And the ones who cry need to be made to smile
Some desires are half-met, some work is still pending
The desires that were choked within this heart, they need to be buried still
Some relationships were made and broken,
Some almost made it and then they didn’t
The wounds of those broken, forgotten relationships need to be wiped away still
You go ahead, I will follow soon, what will I leave behind, how will i get to you otherwise?
Those who have a right over these breaths, they need to be explained to still
Go slow, life, some debts are still to be paid
