Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived

Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived from the homeland
A letter has arrived

Bade Dinon Ke Baad Hum Be-Watnon Ko Yaad
Bade Dinon Ke Baad Hum Be-Watnon Ko Yaad

After many days, we remember our fellow countrymen
After many days, we remember our fellow countrymen

Watan Ki Mitti Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai

The soil of the homeland has arrived
A letter has arrived

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived from the homeland
A letter has arrived

Upar Mera Naam Likha Hai Andar Yeh Paigham Likha Hai
O Pardes Ko Jaane Wale Laut Ke Phir Na Aane Wale

My name is written above, and inside there’s a message
Oh, one who is going abroad, returning may not come again

Saat Samundar Paar Gaya Tu Humko Zinda Maar Gaya Tu
Khoon Ke Rishte Tod Gaya Tu Aankh Mein Aansu Chhod Gaya Tu

You crossed the seven seas, you’ve given us life but also killed us
You’ve broken the blood ties, left tears in our eyes

Kamm Khaate Hain Kamm Sote Hain
Bahut Zyada Hum Rote Hain

We eat less, sleep less
But we cry a lot

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived from the homeland
A letter has arrived

Sooni Ho Gayi Shehar Ki Galiyan Kaante Bann Gayi Baag Ki Kaliyan
Kehte Hai Savan Ke Jhule Bhool Gaya Tu Hum Nahi Bhoole

The city’s lanes have become empty, thorns have become garden flowers
They say the swings of the monsoon have forgotten, but you have not forgotten

Tere Bin Jab Aayi Diwali Deep Nahi Dil Jale Hain Khaali
Tere Bin Jab Aayi Holi Pichkari Se Chhooti Goli

Without you, Diwali came, but no lamps, only hearts burned empty
Without you, Holi came, a bullet escaped the water gun

Peepal Soona Panghat Soona Ghar Shamshaan Ka Bana Namoona
Fasal Kati Aayi Baisakhi Tera Aana Reh Gaya Baaki

The Peepal tree is deserted, the stream is silent, the house is like a cremation ground
The harvest came during Baisakhi, your arrival is still pending

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived from the homeland
A letter has arrived

Pehle Jab Tu Khat Likhta Tha Kagaz Mein Chehra Dikhta Tha
Band Hua Yeh Mel Bhi Ab Toh Khatam Hua Yeh Khel Bhi Ab Toh

When you used to write letters, your face was visible on the paper
This connection was closed, and now this game is over

Doli Mein Jab Baithi Behna Rasta Dekh Rahe The Naina
Main Toh Baap Hoon Mera Kya Hai Teri Maa Ka Haal Bura Hai

In the palanquin, when the sister sat, Naina were looking at the road
I am your father, what is my status? Your mother’s condition is bad

Teri Biwi Karti Hai Sewa Soorat Se Lagti Hai Bewa
Toone Paisa Bahut Kamaya Iss Paise Ne Desh Chhudaya

Your wife serves, her appearance seems like a widow
You earned a lot of money; this money has betrayed the country

Desh Paraya Chhod Ke Aaja
Panchhi Pinjra Tod Ke Aaja

Leave the foreign land and come back
Break the cage, O bird, come back

Desh Paraya Chhod Ke Aaja
Panchhi Pinjra Tod Ke Aaja

Leave the foreign land and come back
Break the cage, O bird, come back

Aaja Umar Bahut Hai Chhoti
Apne Ghar Mein Bhi Hai Roti

Come, you’re age is very short
There is bread even in your home

Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived

Bade Dinon Ke Baad Hum Be-Watnon Ko Yaad
Watan Ki Mitti Aayi Hai Chitthi Aayi Hai

After many days, we remember our fellow countrymen
The soil of the homeland has arrived, A letter has arrived

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
A letter has arrived
A letter has arrived from the homeland
A letter has arrived

Bade Dinon Ke Baad Hum Be-Watnon Ko Yaad
Watan Ki Mitti Aayi Hai Chitthi Aayi Hai

After many days, we remember our fellow countrymen
The soil of the homeland has arrived, A letter has arrived

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Watan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai

A letter has arrived, has arrived
