  5. I have been looking for translation of Hindi songs to understand them better. You are doing excellent service.

  6. Not very good with languages per se, having no background in Hindi or Urdu it is good to know the lyrics for the songs. The music sounds good but what are they saying is the big part of hearing and understanding the meaning. This site did provide a lot of help as its translations are in English a language I know and understand very well.

  7. I’m a Turk and i know Persian very well and a little bit english, i’m in love with classic bollywood songs and your site! what a classy site you have friends 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for this site. I spent 1968 – 1970 near Jallundhur in the Peace Corps. My biggest treat for me was watching films every weekend at the Cine Pyal. My Indian friends would explain to me the deeper meaning of the lyrics. I learned to read and write Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu and now, as an old man of 72, I still manage to keep my language skills alive thanks to the internet. You provide a precious link to the Bollywood of that wonderful period. Thank you so much. Guruji

As i was looking for translations of all the Saigal songs,I chanced upon your blog.Being from the southern tip of India,I am not really good at understanding Hindi or Urdu, although I have sung many times before my private audience ,Jab Dil Hi toot gaya, not understanding many words in that song.Thanks a lot. I would love to get the meaning of other famous Saigal songs also.
