मन रे तू
Song: Man re tu kaahe na dheer dhare
Movie: Chithralekha (1964)
Singer: Mohd. Rafi
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
man re tu kaahe na dheer dhare
o nirmohi moh na jaane jinka moh kare
is jeevan ki chadhti dhalti
dhoop ko kiss ne baandha
rang pe kis ne pehre daale
roop ko kis ne baandha
kaahe yeh jatan kare
utna hi upkaar samajh koi
jitna saath nibhaa de
janam maran ka mel hai sapna
yeh sapna bisraa de
koi na sang mare
Dear mind, why don't you assume courage?
Whom you desire is devoid of all emotions, all desires
Who has tied up the rising and receding
Sunlight of life?
Who has placed restraints on colour,
Who has shackled beauty?
Not knowing these why make the effort?
Recognise the favour of one as much as
The person is faithful to you
Dreams are a union of life and death
Hence forget these dreams
For nobody accompanies you in death
