Iktara Iktara – Mp3, Lyrics and translation

So, today Iktara song from the Bollywood movie ‘Wake up Sid’ is running in loop continuously at the background as I am to focus on the office work! ;) And yes.. its the female version! I like the female version more than the male version!

Here it goes – the lyrics and translations and the MP3 – as usual, you can download/play it from the BOX.net widget at the right bottom of this page..

After seeing the translations, I was really impressed with he work of Javed Akhtar! Though I do not know Hindi, I think I can become a fan of Javed Akhtar just for this song..

Movie: Wake Up Sid (2009)
Music for this song: Amit Trivedi
Music Director for the movie: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
Lyricist: Javed Akhtar
Sung by: Kavita Seth, Amitabh Bhattacharya

orey manva tu to bavra hai
o mind, you are little crazy

tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai
only you know what you think

tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai bavre
only you know what you think, o crazy

kyun dikhaye sapne tu sote jaagte
why are showing dreams in day and night

jo barse sapne boond boond
when the dreams pour down in drops

nainon ko moond moond
blocking eyes

nainon ko moond moond
filling eyes

jo barse sapne boond boond
when the dreams pour down in drops

nainon ko moond moond
covering eyes

kaise main chaloon,
how could I walk

dekh na sakoon, anjaane raastein
I can’t see the unknown paths

gunja sa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing

gunjasa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing

dheeme bole koi iktara iktara, dheeme bole koi iktara
some string instrument is saying it slowly, slowly some string instrument is saying

gunjasa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing

sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke koi main kahani
losing my consciousness I am listening to some story

poori kahani hai kya kise hai pata
what is whole story who knows

main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
becoming someone’s I didn’t know

ruth hai ye do pal ki ya rehgi sada
is it a season of moment or will it stay forever

kise hai pata… kise hai pata
who knows? who knows?

jo barse sapne boond boond
when the dreams pour down in drops

nainon ko moond moond
blocking eyes

nainon ko moond moond
filling eyes

jo barse sapne boond boond
when the dreams pour down in drops

nainon ko moond moond
covering eyes

kaise main chaloon,
how could I walk,

dekh na sakoon, anjaane raastein
I can’t see the unknown paths

gunjasa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing

gunjasa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing

dheeme bole koi iktara iktara, dheeme bole koi iktara
some string instrument is saying it slowly, slowly some string instrument is saying

gunjasa hai koi iktara iktara, gunjasa hai koi iktara
some iktara (one string instrument) is playing/roaring/echoing
