Dhiktana Song Lyrics and Translation
From the movie – Hum Aapke Hain Koun
bhaabhi tum khushiyon ka khazaana
Sister-in-law, you are a treasure trove of happiness
pahali kiran jab se uge
The moment the first sunbeam appears,
bhaabhi meri tab se jage
my sister-in-law awakes.
sab ka puura dhyaan dhare voh
She gives her attention to everyone;
shaam dhale tak kaam kare
she works until the evening has ended.
kal tak rahaa is chhanv (chhaao) se
Until yesterday, I was in shadow,
mera bachpan anjaana
ignorant with childhood.
hogi meri shaadi kabhi
My own wedding will happen sometime;
kahate hain yeh mujh se sabhi
Every single person says this to me:
khud apni dev(a)raani chunna
pick your bride yourself.
baat kisi ki mat sunna
Don’t listen to anyone else’s advice.
tum dhuundh ke rang ruup mein
Having looked for (someone like) you in all your beauty,
apni parchhaayi laana
bring your reflection (for me to marry)
kab tak rahuun sab se chhota
How long will I remain the smallest?
aaye koi mujh se chhota
Someone will come who is smaller than me!
hansta bolta koi khilauna
Laughing, talking, some plaything;
ab in baanhon ko do na
give her to this embrace right now!
tumse maange ghar ka aangan
The courtyard of this home asks it of you,
pyaara pyaara nazaraana
the lovely, lovely gift (of a child)
