Kahte Hain Taare Gaate Hain
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!
                       sannaaTaa vasudhaa par chhaayaa,
                       nabh men hamane kaan lagaayaa,
phir bhee agaNit kanThon kaa yah raag naheen ham sun paate hain!
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

                       svarg sunaa karataa yah gaanaa,
                       pRthivee ne to bas yah jaanaa,
agaNit os-kaNon men taaron ke neerav aa(n)soo aate hain!
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

                       oopar dev tale maanavagaN,
                       nabh men donon gaayan-rodan,
raag sadaa oopar ko uThataa, aa(n)soo neeche jhar jaate hain.
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

phir sochaa - yah kahanaa kitanaa naakaaph़ee hai

vo havaa vaheen Thaharee hai abhee tak
aur chhootee hai roj
lagabhag rok letee huee see
jab gujarane lagataa hoo(n) vahaa(n) se
jahaa(n) us din gujarate phon aa gayaa thaa tumhaaraa
aur thoḌee der ke lie aas paas
champaa ke phool khil aaye the

chhoTee see duniyaa
kitane saare log
raj tam sat kaa
vibhinn sanyog.
sahooliyat ke hisaab se

kitane naamon se
pukaar liyaa,
maanyataaon aur paramparaaon men
jakaḌ liyaa.
kisee ne kahaa-
too hai
kisee ne kahaa-
too naheen hai
