Haan hai


Aayi meri subha hasti hasati
boli aake tere liye sandesa hai, haan hai

Jaagi aankhon ko bhi sapna milega
kohin khushi aane ka bhi andesa hai, haan hai

Above is a song from Raajneeti. I love to hear the words "haan hai", and it's not just because of Antara Mitra's sweet voice.

"Haan hai" literally means "yes, it is". I was so engrossed in being sad about things I couldn't get in the past and worrying about the things I want in future, that I forgot about the present.

In my favourite movie "Kung Fu Panda", here is what Master Oogway tells to depressed Po, "Quit. Don't quit. Noodles. Don't noodles. You are too concerned with what was and what will be. There's a saying. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift that is why it is called the "present"."

Those two words, "haan hai" reminds me of, or rather pulls me IN this moment, this beautiful moment. :)


  1. Inspiring... Kung fu panda had more such beautiful lines...

    And I need to check that song on utube

  2. The future's not ours to see what will be , will be...

    ter's some depth in that song!

  3. Welcome back to where you were supposed to be. In the PRESENT.
    Glad atleast the song made you realise this if nothing else.
    Music can create wonders.

  4. @Suresh: You can search for "Bheegi Si Bhaagi Si". :)

    @Priya: Ya, and it will be for good only! :)

    @Dhandal: Yes, music can create wonders, and so can friends! :D
