This is a song about crossing to a different shore and how the boatman is the guiding spirit who ferries people across the river. It talks about how the boatman is the only beacon of light amidst the swirling darkness of the river. And about how his presence gives migrants a sense of hope & calm.

This is a recurring theme in Nitin's set because he was brought up in different countries and considers his parents to have migrated similarly; wherein they were taken across the river to start afresh in a new land.

Song synopsis:
Tham lo patvaar tanik .... , Meri nav samble jaye
Tum hoke vanhar , toh tufan palat jaye
Band lo nazar mein yun,
Ke zindagi savar jaye
In balao se mein keh doon,
Dur se he laut jaye

Tham lo patvaar tanik .... , Meri nav samble jaye
Tum hoke vanhar , toh tufan palat jaye
Band lo nazar mein yun,
Ke zindagi savar jaye
In balao se mein keh doon,
Dur se he laut jaye

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mujh ko meethi neend sula do
Aur bor hone se pehle
Mere saahil pass bula do.

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mujh ko meethi neend sula do
Aur bor hone se pehle
Mere saahil pass bula do.

Tham lo patvaar tanik .... , Meri nav samble jaye
Tum hoke vanhar , toh tufan palat jaye
Band lo nazar mein yun,
Ke zindagi savar jaye
In balao se mein keh doon,
Dur se he laut jaye

Tham lo patvaar tanik .... , Meri nav samble jaye
Tum hoke vanhar , toh tufan palat jaye
Band lo nazar mein yun,
Ke zindagi savar jaye
In balao se mein keh doon,
Dur se he laut jaye

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mujh ko meethi neend sula do
Aur bor hone se pehle
Mere saahil pass bula do.

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mujh ko meethi neend sula do
Aur bor hone se pehle
Mere saahil pass bula do.

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mere saahil pass bula do.

Tham lo patvaar tanik .... , Meri nav samble jaye
Tum hoke vanhar , toh tufan palat jaye
Band lo nazar mein yun,
Ke zindagi savar jaye
In balao se mein keh doon,
Dur se he laut jaye

Maaji koi geet sunakar
Mujh ko meethi neend sula do
Aur bor hone se pehle
Mere saahil pass bula do. (4)

Meaning of the song:
When it comes to the tough and dangerous journeys of life one needs a reliable and assuring hand. A hand you can hold on to, for strength and for direction.

The poet is sharing experiences about his journey across the rivers, to newer prosperous shores. Shores where he hopes to improve his life and give him opportunities that would remove all his hardships.

He surrenders his hope and faith in the boatman and implores him to ensure that the boat gets across safely. He asks the boatman to sing a song, as that would not just remove fear but also make his journey
