Ik Vaari Aa from Raabta describes Shiv’s emotions as he waits for Saira. They haven’t met in a while. He asks her to come and meet him for once since it’s been long. Shiv has been staring at the roads helplessly, awaiting her arrival.
WORD- Ik Vaari – One time, Raah- Paths, Takun – Stare, Bechara – Helpless.
The evening has begun to set as it comes to an end. His heart now solely belongs to Saira and her presence has become a habit in his life. They’re companions for life. If he is the moon, she’s the star that lights up the sky.

They’re now constantly tested as they reach the extremes of their love. His affection for her has now passed beyond limits.
Shiv’s heart now beats restlessly and he only has one request – That Saira embraces him with open arms, it would give him some much-needed comfort.

Now he reckons he has only one job – To love her endlessly. All the idle time he has, he’s making use of it wisely. Amidst all this, he marvels at the beautiful sky.

He admits that he’s fallen in love numerous times before. But he hasn’t experienced much if he hasn’t fallen in love with her. His previous experiences pale in comparison to now.
The connection between them, is the path he wishes to walk on, in this lifetime. Shiv wonders if they shared a bond even before they met?
