Songs are the most common form of poetry, and with translation or conversion of poetry to any other language, disturbs its beauty. So it is always suggested to have a little knowledge of the language to understand the poetry written in that language.
The language, Hindi is another beautiful language and it was a difficult task to convert songs in English letters, the way it does not loose its beauty. Hindi has its sound like vowels and vocabulary so that we have taken some liberty in writing the most equivalent letters of English instead of some typically pronounced Hindi consonants. We have given here some of these letters and their pronunciation.
