In expressing my appreciation of the Jaane Tu... soundtrack by A. R. Rahman, I have quietly skipped commenting on (and almost unfairly ignored) a concurrent A. R. Rahman soundtrack release, that to the upcoming film Ada...a Way of Life. Hope to share thoughts on the good music album soon (here are notes on the soundtrack in a previous post). For the moment, enjoy my favorite song from Ada, Hawa Sun Hawa, with vocals by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam.
It's a beautiful song with simple but beautiful lyrics by Nusrat Badr (I like how the wind is treated as a being, and use it as a proper noun). Here they are with my translation. Taking a slightly different approach to this, and noting them in one voice (male). The Alka Yagnik lyrics are almost identical (with the occasional additional aaja re, but they are the same otherwise), so this encompasses the entire song in a way. You can listen to the song (and other songs from Ada) at this link. Enjoy!
