To be alive - zinda rayeeay
To be alive: not just the carcass
But the spark.
That's crudely put, but
If we're not supposed to dance,
Why all this music?

Jinda rayeeay: mardoot jay nahin;
eh baDa rukha jiya kehna lagada hai
magar jay asiN na hasseay tay nacheeay
taaN eh dhol waajay kis waasday ne?
-tr. Ravi Kopra
