I Love India Song Lyrics and Translation

From the movie – Pardes

“London” dekha “Paris” dekha…

I’ve seen London, I’ve seen Paris,

aur dekha “Japan”

and I’ve seen Japan.

“Michael” dekha “Elvis” dekha sab dekha meri jaan

I’ve seen Michael (Jackson), I’ve seen Elvis; I’ve seen it all, my darling;

saare jag mein kahin nahin hai duusra hindustaan

and in all the world there is no other India,

duusra hindustaan…

no other India…

yeh duniya ik dulhan…

This world is a bride,

dulhan ke maathe ki bindiya

and the jewel (bindi) on the bride’s forehead

yeh mera india yeh mera india

is this India of mine, this India of mine.

yeh duniya ik dulhan…

This world is a bride,

dulhan ke maathe ki bindiya

and the jewel on the bride’s forehead

yeh mera india

is this India of mine, this India of mine.

jab chheda balhaar kisi ne

It took a fabulous tune to

jhuumke saawan aaya

make the rains descend.

aag laga di paani mein jab

The water lit on fire

dipak raag sunaaya

at the sound of the Deepak raga.

saat suron ka sangam yeh jiwan giton ka maala

This life is a garland made of songs, the meeting of the seven notes.

ham apne bhagwaan ko bhi kahate hain baansuriwaala

We even call our God ‘the flute player.’ [i.e., Krishna]

pihu pihu bole papihaa

The cuckoo caws, pihu pihu!

koyal koyal kuhu kuhu gaaye

The crow sings, kuhu kuhu!

hanste rote hamne jiwan ki sab git banaaye

In laughter and tears, we (Indians) made all of life’s songs.

yeh saari duniya apne apne giton ko gaaye

This whole world sings to our songs.

git voh gaao jis se is mitti ki khushbu aaye

Sing the song from which the fragrance of this earth arises.

vatan mera india sajan mera india

India, my homeland; India, my beloved.

yeh duniya ik dulhan…

This world is a bride,

dulhan ke maathe ki bindiya

and the jewel on the bride’s forehead

yeh mera india

is this India of mine.

vatan mera india sajan mera india

India, my homeland; India, my beloved.

karam mera india dharam mera india

India, my fate; India, my religion.

PART TWO

jis des mein mere piya us des mein mera jiya

The country in which my beloved resides is where my life is.

kitna mushkil hai dil ka lagaana

How difficult it is to fall in love,

pardes aana…

to have to go abroad…

yeh duniya ik dulhan…

This world is a bride,

dulhan ke maathe ki bindiya

and the jewel on the bride’s forehead

yeh mera india

is this India of mine.

vatan mera india sajan mera india

India, my homeland; India, my beloved.

yeh duniya yeh duniya

This world, this world

ek dulhan ek dulhan

is a bride, a bride

dulhan ke maathe ki bindiya

and the jewel on the bride’s forehead

yeh mera india

is this India of mine.

karam mera india dharam mera india…

India, my fate; India, my religion…

vatan mera india sajan mera india

India, my homeland; India, my beloved.
