Remembering the actress Meena Kumari (1 August 1933 to 31 March 1972, nee Mahjabeen Bano). A sublime song (Chalte Chalte Yun Hi Koi) and scene from the movie masterpiece Pakeezah which premiered on 3 February 1972, a few weeks before Meena died at the age of 38. She won four Filmfare awards for Best Actress (the Indian cinema equivalent of an Oscar). In 1963, Meena was the only nominee for Best Actress, with three nominations for the award. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar in prime voice. Lata died on 6 February of this year, 50 years after Meena died.

Here is a nice translation into English of the lyrics side by side with a romanized transliteration of the sung Urdu lyrics. The beautiful lyrics of all the songs are poetry composed by a well known Urdu poet, and are metaphorical. The "night of mine" and "night of waiting" refer to the character's long life of darkness working as a courtesan. She sings of her faint hope that this darkness will be ended by her having chanced to meet a man who truly loves her.

If you’ve never listened to ‘Fado’ - traditional Portuguese folk music I would totally recommend Mariza’s debut.

I have no clue what she is singing about but it is pure emotion . Enjoy.
