ज़िंदगी आसान है।
क्यों हम इसे मुश्किल बना रहे है?
क्यों हम जीना भूल रहे है?

रहने के लिए चाहिए होता है, एक छोटा सा घर।
घर जो दीवारों से नहीं, बनता है तो सिर्फ लोगों से।
जिन्हें हम प्यार से कहते है परिवार।

पहनने के लिए चाहिए होते है कुछ कपडे।
पेट की भूख मिटाने के लिए चाहिए होता है खाना।
मन की भूख मिटाने के लिए चाहिए होती है शांति।

ये सब भूल कर,
हम कहाँ दौड़ रहे है।
ज़िंदगी के पीछे या ज़िंदगी के आगे?

एक बार ज़िंदगी के साथ साथ चलना सीखो।
ज़िंदगी से प्यार करना सीखो।
ज़िंदगी को जीना सीखो।

ज़िंदगी वाकई आसान है।
ज़िंदगी वाकई आसान है।
ज़िंदगी वाकई आसान है।

"Zindagi Aasaan Hai"


Zindagi aasaan hai.
Kyun hum isse mushkil bana rahe hai?
Kyun hum jeena bhul rahe hai?

Rehne ke liye chahiye hota hai, ek chota sa ghar.
Ghar jo deewaron se nahi, banta hai toh sirf logon se.
Jinhe hum pyaar se kehte hai parivaar.

Pehenne ke liye chahiye hote hai kuch kapde.
Pet ki bhukh mitane ke liye chahiye hota hai khana.
Mann ki bhukh mitane ke liye chahiye hoti hai shaanti.

Yeh sab bhool kar,
Hum kahan daud rahe hai.
Zindagi ke peeche ya zindagi ke aage?

Ek baar zindagi ke saath saath chalna seekho.
Zindagi se pyaar karna seekho.
Zindagi ko jeena seekho.

Zindagi vaakai aasaan hai.
Zindagi vaakai aasaan hai.
Zindagi vaakai aasaan hai.

English Translation:

"Life is easy"


Life is easy.
Why are we making it hard?
Why do we forget to live?

To reside, one needs a small house.
The house that is not made of walls, but built of only people.
Whom we love to call, family.

To wear, one needs some clothes.
To erase the appetite of the stomach, one needs food.
To remove the hunger of mind, one must have peace.

By forgetting all this,
Where are we running?
Behind the life or ahead of life?

Learn to walk along with life once.
Learn to love life.
Learn to live life.

Life is easy indeed.
Life is easy indeed.
Life is easy indeed.
