Re-discovering Mangalyam (from the movie Saathiya)

'Mangalyam' is a song from the movie Saathiya, starring Rani Mukherji and Vivek Oberoi. It is essentially the pop track  'O Humdum Suniyo Re' and is sung by Kaykay, Shaan, Kunal and Pravin Mani.

So why does it feature in my blog? I dunno, just love the tune and the lyrics. While searching for the video i came across the meaning of the Sanskrit chant posted by a user called mohnish0999. While I can't vouch for the accuracy of the translation, it does feel nice and appropriate. 


|| Mangalyam tantunanena 
mama jeevana hetuna: 
kanthe badhnami subhage 
twam jeeva sarada satam ||

This is a sacred thread.
 This is essential for my long life. 
I tie this around your neck O maiden
 having many auspicious attributes.
 May you live happily 
for a hundred years with me.

Hope you liked this.
