Shafaq Ke Rang Nikalne Ke Baad Aai Hai

shafaq ke rang nikalne ke baad aai hai

ye shaam dhuup men chalne ke baad aai hai

After the colours of dusk have been splayed out

the evening has come after walking in the Sun

ye raushni tire kamre men khud nahin aai

shama ka jism pighalne ke baad aai hai

this light didn’t appear in your room on its own

It has come after burning the body of the candle

isi tarah se rakho band meri ankhen ab

ki niind khvab badalne ke baad aai hai

Keep my eyes closed in such a way now

For sleep has come after changing my dreams

yaqin hai ki kabhi be-asar nahin hogi

dua labon pe machalne ke baad aai hai

I am convinced that it shall never go unheeded

For this prayer has come after twitching on my lips

nadi jo pyaar se bahti hai regzaron men

ye pattharon men uchhalne ke baad aai hai

the river that runs sweetly through the deserts

Has come after bounding through the boulders

thi jis bahar ki uljhan tamam muddat se

vo ‘indira’ ke bahalne ke baad aai hai

that spring which caused such distress for so long

Has finally arrived, now that Indira has calmed down
