Haan Mere Gham Toh Utha Leta Hai Lyrics

Verse 1

My sorrow picks up the pieces, they’re not thorns of sadness

My heart is a neighbour but not my follower

WORD- Tarafdar- Follower

Gulzar switches up the proverb of “Follow your heart” in line 2.  He says his heart doesn’t follow him. This probably means he is sometimes caught between doing what his heart says and doing what his mind says. Growing up, we’ve always been taught to follow our heart and do the things that we love.

Verse 2

After meeting you, I realized that

Life isn’t difficult and dying isn’t hard as well

Out here, everyone lives in glass houses, just think

They only pay their respects, in order to not quarrel with you

WORD- Dushwar- Difficult.  Takraar- Conflict/Quarrel

In Line 3, Gulzar refers to the famous proverb- “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones”. It could mean both figuratively and literally. The people he meets probably live in expensive houses with glass windows. Hence they don’t want the outsiders to discover their issues. 

Of a metaphorical sense- He could be talking about how some individuals put on a disguise and aren’t honest with the people they meet. They do so only to not create problems. Rather than being honest and improving the situation, they’d rather live a lie.
