Translations almost always fail to grab the true essence of what is said. And most times, instead of being accurate they end up being hilarious. For example, choose your favourite Hindi song, and try to translate it into English…you’ll know what I mean!
And people online have been having a gala time trying to translate some of the most popular Atif Aslam songs into English. It started when one person called Aadat ‘Habit’. What followed was people trying to translate his songs leaving others to guess what the name of the song is.
Have a look:
Hum Kis Gali Jaa Rahe Hai translated to:
Which street are we going to – Atif Aslam pic.twitter.com/2LzJrDGCT1

This one is a tricky one. This translates to ‘Har duyan mein shamil tera pyaar hai’ – a line from Pehli Nazar.
Your love is included in every prayer,
without you every moment is difficult -Atif Aslam
