Every soul tries to meet the cherished  ultimate.

The philosophy of Life..

"Oh re taal mile nadi ke jal mein
Nadi mile saagar mein
saagar mile kaun se jal mein
Koyi jaane na...

Suraj ko dharti tarsay
Dharti ko chandrama
Paani me seep Jaisay
Pyaasi har aatma
O mitwa re 
Boondh chhupi kis baadal mein
Koyi jaane na..

Anjaane hothon par kyon
Pehchaane geet hain,
Kal tak Jo begaanay thay
Janamon ke meet hain
O mitwa re
Kya hoga kaun se pal mein
Koyi jaane na.."

This is my English rendering of the song written by poet Indivar for the movie Anokhi Raat. I  understand the song this way...

(The water from the  pond
flows towards the river.
The river flows to join the ocean;
Where does the ocean water flow ?
None has answer to this question.

The earth desires to meet the sun,
the moon desires to meet the earth .
Hidden in its  shell lies the pearl,
like water drops in the cloud,
the unseen creates a craving, 
a thirst,
Who knows which cloud carries  our share of the rain ? 

Sometimes, familiar songs appear 
on the lips of strangers ,
Quite often, strangers till yesterday 
become companions of this life and hereafter,
O dear friend,
Who knows,What   fate shall bring forth the very next  moment ?)
