Heer : Jab Tak Hai Jaan : Lyrics Meaning, Translation

The only one track from Jab Tak Hai Jaan, that stroke a chord instantly. Sung brilliantly by Harshdeep Kaur, this song is stuck in head since I first heard it.

Being a 'non-North Indian', it was tough to get the full on Punjabi words from it. Searched a lot over the internet, but no luck. So, I myself had tried translating it with the help of Google of course. After knowing the meaning of words, I am loving it more. Here are the lyrics and translation. Hope my translation is correct. Suggestions are welcome as always. (Tip : Read about the love story of Mirza-Sahiban on wikipedia here)

Heer Heer na akho adiyo, Main te Sahibaan hoye,
Ghodi leke aaye le jaaye,  Ghodi leke aaye le jaaye,

Don't call me Heer, my dear friends, I have become Sahibaan (in his love)
Wish he comes and take me away on a horse,

Le jaaye Mirza koi, Le jaaye Mirza koi,
(I wish) Mirza, take me away

Ohde je hi main te oh mere warga,
I am just like him, he is just like me

hansda ae sajra sawere warga,
When he smiles, dawn is adorned,

ankha bandh kar la te thande hanere warga
(as he) closes eyes, (it) feels like cold (soothing) darkness,

ohde je hi main te o Mirza mere warga
I am just like him, and Mirza is just like me

Naal naal tur na te vith rakhna
Walk together, don't keep any distance,

hadd rakh lena wich dil rakhna,
Mark a boundary, keep my heart within it.

chhanve chhanve paawe assi teri parchhawe tur na
While walking, under your shadow, I will find my (shelter) shade.

ohde je hi main te o Mirza mere warga
I am just like him, and Mirza is just like me

    Hey.. Nice work..
    but according to me in the line- "naal naal tur na te vith rakhna"
    its actual meaning is -he walk with me but also keep some space or distance in between..
    "walk together by keeping distance"
    :-)

  51. To understamd this lyrics you need to know the backdrop of the story. The story of Mirza and Sahiba... like Heer Ranjha, Soni Mahiwal, Kaif Laila these two are also lovers who were killed for loving each other.....

  52. Mirza is a Jat , Jat Clan from Punjab, and Sahiban belong to Sial tribe.[6] They were childhood classmates as well as playmates. Sahiban was the daughter of Mahni Khan, the chief of Kheewa, a town in what is now the Sial territory in the Jhangdistrict Punjab, Pakistan. Shayer Peelu raves about her beauty and says:“Sahiban stepped out with a lungi tied around her waist, the nine angels died upon seeing her beauty.”Mirza is the son of Chaudhary Wanjhal Khan, a land baron of the Jat tribe in Danabad, a town in the Jaranwala area of what is now Faisalabad,Pakistan[7]Mirza is sent to his relatives' house in Khivan to study, where he meets Sahiban and they fall in love. When, later in life, Sahiban is to be wedded to Taha Khan of the Chander family by arrangement of her parents, she sends a message to Mirza, living in the village of Danabad, through a Brahmin called Karmu:“You must come and decorate Sahiban’s hand with the marriage henna.”Mirza's sister asks him not to try to rescue Sahiban, as it is the day of her own wedding and she wants her brother to be there. His whole family warns him that the "Sials" (referring to Sahiban's brothers) are aggressive and should be left alone, but Mirza pays no heed to this.Sahiba was the daughter of Chaudhary Khiva Khan, a feudal land baron of Khivan, who belonged to the Sial tribe of Jats.[8]Mirza arrives on his Bakki (the name of Mirza's mare) during Sahiban's mehndi ceremony and carries her away. Sahiban's brothers find out about this and decide to follow them. On the way, as Mirza decides to rest for some moments under the shade of a tree resting his head in Sahiban's lap. Sahiban's brothers and Chanders caught up fast with them.Sahiban knew Mirza to be an accomplished archerwho would not miss a target, and that if he shot at her brothers, the latter would surely die at Mirza's hands. Thus, before waking Mirza up from his slumber, Sahiban broke his arrows so he couldn't use them, and hoped that, on seeing her, her brothers might change their minds and welcome Mirza into the family. She thought that they'd understand their love that they had for each other, but they were not to be swayed and a fight ensued. Though Mirza fought with all his might, he is unable to defeat such a large number of people and killed by the blow of a sword to his head from behind. Sahiban did not want bloodshed from either side of her beloved ones and her love to be stained with her brothers' blood. So she ended the fight with self-annihilation. When Mirza was gone, she killed herself with Mirza's sword. Out of all the legendary stories originating from Punjab,Pakistan, Mirza Sahiban's story is one of very few where the male's name comes first. The legendary tale of Mirza Sahiban is now a part of Punjabi Culture in form of folk songs sung by many singers including Kuldeep Manak, Gurmeet Bawa,Harbhajan Mann and many more.
