Hindi translation of Lyrics: Michael Jackson’s “We are the world” USA for Africa


Written by: Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie

Translated exclusively for ‘Discover Life’ to Hindi by: Harish Jharia 

We Are the World 
(Click here for the Video)

There comes a time when we heed a certain call 
ऐसे पल भी आते हैं कभी, जब  सुननी होती है  हमें कोई  पुकार  
When the world must come together as one
जब हो जाना चाहिए सारी दुनियाँ को एकसाथ एकरूप 
There are people dying
कितने ही लोग हैं जो मर रहे हैं 
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
आह..! लो आ गया है यह पल ज़िंदगी को सहारा देने का 
The greatest gift of all 
दुनियाँ की सबसे महान भेंट 

We can't go on pretending day by day

नहीं पाल सकेंगे हम और ढ़ोंग, दिन-ब-दिन 
That someone somehow will soon make a change
फिर लाएगा बदलाव कोई-न-कोई, किसी-न-किसी तरह  
We're all a part of God's great big family
हम सब अंग है ईश्वर के महान विराट परिवार के  
And the truth - you know love is all we need
और सच कहें, प्यार की ही है सबको ज़रूरत आज


We are the world; we are the children
हमी हैं दुनियाँ; हमी हैं संतान 
We are the ones who make a brighter day
हमी हैं वो जो ला सकते हैं उज्जवल दिन
So let's start giving
तो आओ शुरू करें कुर्बानी
There's a choice we're making
चुन रहे हैं हम स्वयं ही अपना रास्ता  
We're saving our own lives
बचा रहे हैं हम खुद ही अपनी जिंदगियां 
It's true we'll make a better day
सचमुच, बनाएंगे हम एक बेहतर दिन 
Just you and me
बस तुम और हम 


Well, send them you your heart
चलो, उन-तक दिल पहुंचाओ अपना
So they know that someone cares
ताकि, उन्हें महसूस हो कि किसी को परवाह है उनकी 
And their lives will be stronger and free
और उनका जीवन हो मज़बूत और आज़ाद   
As God has shown us
जैसा ईश्वर ने दिखाया था   
By turning stone to bread
पत्थर को रोटी में तब्दील करके 
And so we all must lend a helping hand
और ऐसे ही बढ़ाएँ हम भी उपकार का हाथ   


We are the world; we are the children
हमी हैं दुनियाँ; हमी हैं संतान 
We are the ones who make a brighter day
हमी हैं वो जो ला सकते हैं उज्जवल दिन
So let's start giving
तो आओ शुरू करें कुर्बानी
There's a choice we're making
चुन रहे हैं हम स्वयं ही अपना रास्ता  
We're saving our own lives
बचा रहे हैं हम खुद ही अपनी जिंदगियां 
It's true we'll make a better day
सचमुच, बनाएंगे हम एक बेहतर दिन 
Just you and me
बस तुम और हम 


When you're down and out
और जब हो तुम उदास और खिन्न 
There seems no hope at all
और ना बची हो उम्मीद की कोई किरण 
But if you just believe
पर अगर तुम में है विश्वास 
There's no way we can fall
तो कोई प्रश्न ही नहीं उठता हमारे पतन का 
Well, well, well, let's realize
सुनो, सुनो, सुनो, आओ महसूस करें 
That one change can only come
कि एक परिवर्तन तो आना ही है 
When we stand together as one
जब हम सब होकर एक, एकसाथ खड़े होंगे 


We are the world; we are the children
हमी हैं दुनियाँ; हमी हैं संतान 
We are the ones who make a brighter day
हमी हैं वो जो ला सकते हैं उज्जवल दिन
So let's start giving
तो आओ शुरू करें कुर्बानी
There's a choice we're making
चुन रहे हैं हम स्वयं ही अपना रास्ता  
We're saving our own lives
बचा रहे हैं हम खुद ही अपनी जिंदगियां 
It's true we'll make a better day
सचमुच, बनाएंगे हम एक बेहतर दिन 
Just you and me
बस तुम और हम

Not only a non-cereal dish it also makes a good snack, and can be eaten as breakfast and evening refreshment as well.

  8. 3 spoon green coriander leaves हरा धनिया 
  9. 3 spoon ghee घी 
  10. 1 spoon sugar चीनी 
  11. Salt to taste नमक स्वादानुसार 
Method:
  • Wash and drain sago pearls and keep them covered overnight or at least for 3 hours. साबूदाने को धोकर निथार लें और रातभर या कम-से-कम ३ घंटे तक ढँक कर रखे 
  • Chop potato in small pieces. आलू छोटे-छोटे टुकड़ों में काट लें 
  • Heat ghee in a pan and toss cumin seeds (जीरा) in hot ghee. फराईंग पैन में घी गरम करें और ऊपर से जीरा डालें
  • Add peanuts and Roast on a low flame until the peanuts become brown. जीरा चटकने के बाद मूंगफली डालें और हलकी आंच पर सुनहरा होने तक भूनें.
  • Add the chopped potato and green chilies and stir for a minute. फिर कटा आलू और बारीक कटी हरी मिर्च डाल कर एक मिनट तक चलाएं 
  • Add sago pearls (साबूदाना), salt and sugar. अब फूला हुआ साबूदाना डालकर ऊपर से नमक और चीनी डाल कर चलाएं 
  • Stir occasionally until cooked. बीच-बूच में चलाते जाएँ जब-तक कि पाक नहीं जाए 
  • Add lemon juice a minute before taking it off the heat. आग से उतारने से एक मिनट पहले नीबू का रस डालकर चलाएं 
  • Garnish with coriander and coconut and serve with sweetened curds or sweet tamarind chutney as accompaniment.  आंच से उतारकर हरी धनिया और कसे नारियल से सजाएं और दही या चटनी के साथ परोसें

Crazy Ideas: What factors are responsible for depleted fertility of women?


After the age of approximately around 27, the fertility of women starts depleting as the rate of production and quality of eggs reduces, successively, with their biological age. Many women develop blockage in their Fallopian tubes. Fallopian tubes are conduit pipes that carry eggs, every month, from the two ovaries to the uterus and help the process of bearing a child. But, in case of blocked Fallopian tubes the eggs are not able to reach the uterus and the woman is rendered unable to bear a child....

The Most Beautiful And Heaviest Flying Bird: Great Indian Bustard, Son Chiraiyya, सोन चिरैया, Ardeotis Nigriceps


© Harish Jharia

One of the most endangered species among Indian birds is the ‘Great Indian Bustard’ lovingly called ‘Son Chiraiyya’ (सोन चिरैया) in Hindi, with the scientific name 'Ardeotis Nigriceps'.

Indian folklore about the great Indian Bustard (Son Chiraiyya) सोन चिरैया:

I still remember my childhood days of early 50s when I used to hear about Son Chiraiyya in folk stories, folk songs and village life. I remember mothers crying at the time of their daughter’s departure after marriages and whispering the words “My Son Chiraiyya has fluttered away..!” (मेरी सोन चिरैया उड़ गई रे..!). Son Chiraiyya was extensively loved and remembered among common folks as well as in contemporary literature including novels, stories and poems. But, I never saw the bird in my life in its natural habitat. I, of course, had a chance to see this wonderful bird in the national zoo in Hyderabad. 

More about the great Indian Bustard (Son Chiraiyya) सोन चिरैया:

The great Indian Bustard is one of the largest and heaviest flying birds in the world. Its height above the ground and length is approximately 1 meter each and it weighs about 8 to 15 kg. This extremely endangered terrestrial bird’s species was once flourishing across the grasslands of undivided India, but today is total population has reduced to 250 birds and are confined to small patches of grasslands in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh in India. 

These birds are not selective eaters. Their diet depends on the seasonal availability of food. They eat grass seeds; insects like grasshoppers and beetles, and even go for small rodents and reptiles. They are built to survive in harsh weather conditions, yet they have gone extinct because of hunting and poaching. They have been annihilated from almost 90% of their grasslands they inhabited have been converted into agricultural land and urbanized into villages, towns and cities.

In spite of the fact that they are listed in Schedule I of the Wildlife (Protection) Act of India, 1972, they are still being hunted for sport and meat by aristocrats.  

Historical References about The great Indian Bustard: 

Descriptions of the great Indian Bustard are found in the Rajput, Mogul and Maratha periods’ history also. Warriors of that period, especially the Moghuls and British shooters were fond of hunting the great Indian Bustard as it was considered a highly skilled hunting adventure by shooting a fast flying target. Moghuls and British soldiers in India considered it a delicacy. The great Indian Bustard was among the top game-birds of that period and that was the reasons that the great Indian Bustard has become extinct (दुर्लभ) today.
