This is the song that I love to listen to.. It’s a golden era’s song. But let me tell you, it’s a Hindi Bollywood song, many of you may not be able to understand the lyrics. But even if you don’t know you’ll enjoy it. It’s a beautiful song from the epic movie Mughal-e-azam and of course Lata Mangeshkar ( My favorite singer) and Shamshad Begum has sung the song so beautifully!!

Here’s the link

Teri Mehfil mein Qismat

ABOUT THE SONG :

This qawwali is set between Anarkali (played by Madhubala) and her chief rival Bahar (played by Nigar Sultana) as a musical debate on the nature of love. As both women fight for his affections, Prince Salim (played by Dilip Kumar) watches the performance and is supposed to give a rose to the winner of the debate at its conclusion.

Teri Mehfil Mein Qismat Aazmaakar Lyrics and Translation:

Shamshad: terii mahfil me.n qismat aazamaakarham bhii dekhe.nge
In the gathering of your court, we will test our fate.

We shall come close to you fleetingly and watch this spectacle. 
ajii haa.n ham bhii dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.

Lata: terii mahfil me.n qismat aazamaakar ham bhii dekhe.nge
In the gathering of your court, we will test our fate. 
tere qadamo.n pe sar apanaa jhukaa kar ham bhiidekhe.nge
We shall bow our heads at your feet and watch this spectacle 

ajii haa.n ham bhi dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.

Shamshad: bahaare.n aaj paighaam-e-muhabbat leke aayii hai.n
The spring has brought a message of love.
baDii muddat me.n ummiido.n kii kaliyaa.n muskuraayii hai.n
The flowerbuds of hope have smiled  after  a long time. 

gham-e-dil se zaraa daaman bachaakar ham bhii dekhe.nge
We shall protect ourselves from heartache and watch this spectacle.
ajii haa.n ham bhii dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.   

 Lata: agar dil gham se khaalii ho to jiine kaa mazaa kyaa hai?
If the heart is empty of pain, then what pleasure can one find in living?
na ho khuun-e-jigar to ashq piine kaa mazaa kyaa hai?
If the heart does not bleed, then what pleasure can one find  in swallowing tears? 

muhabbat me.n zaraa aa.nsuu bahaakar ham bhii dekhe.nge
We shall shed a few tears in love and watch this spectacle. 
ajii haa.n ham bhii dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.  

Shamshad: muhabbat karnevaalo.n kaa hai bas itnaa hii afasaanaa
Such is the story of lovers: 
taDapnaa chupke chupke aahe.n bharnaa ghuT ke mar jaanaa
They quietly suffer; their eyes fill with tears; they  suffocate and die. 
kisii din yeh tamaashaa muskuraakar ham bhiidekhe.nge
We shall smile one day and watch this spectacle.  

ajii haa.n ham bhii dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.   

Lata: muhabbat hamne maanaa zindagii barbaadkartii hai
We admit that love can destroy one’s life.  
yeh kyaa kam hai ki mar jaane pe duniyaa yaad kartii hai?
But, is it unworthy if the the world remembers lovers after they die? 
kisii ke ishq me.n duniyaa luTaakar ham bhii dekhe.nge
We shall sacrifice the world for someone’s love and watch this spectacle. 
ajii haa.n ham bhii dekhe.nge
Yes, we shall watch this spectacle.  

terii mahfil me.n qismat aazamaakar ham bhi dekhe.nge
In the gathering of your court, we will test our fate.

    1. This form of song is called a “kawaali” where two parties I’d say attack at each other with words by singing. Here, they are singing about love and they are singing for their king to impress him as well as attacking at each other like who’s the best. 😊😊
      I hope I’m successful in making you understand now! 😊😀

    2. And I also want to tell that they are lipsing the song, they are not actual singers. I’ve already mentioned the names of the singers in the post, they are the legends of Indian Film industry. Also, these actors are also famous personalities and legends in the Indian Film Industry. 😃😃😃

    1. Thank you so much!! I’m so happy to know you loved it Maureen 🙂 🙂
      I absolutely agree with you, it is beautiful and mesmerising!! And I love the costumes, it’s traditional Indian Costumes!! ❤ 🙂 🙂
      And to answer your question, No, he didn't pick her, but he was in love with her. You'll have to watch the movie to know the whole story!! It's a classic epic movie based on a real love story of Salim and Anarkali. Salim was a Prince and Son of Mughal emperor Akbar whereas Anarkali was just an ordinary girl. Sadly,their love story had a tragic ending too! 😦 😦
      hahahaha…. Google is the best!! 😉 😀 😀
