There is an old song by Mukesh which has inspired me since my childhood. I love the music and lyrics of the song very much; they are quite inspiring. The song tells us that as humans, we must care for other humans, spread love and compassion, sacrifice for others’ smile and share someone’s pain. Indeed, this is (the way of) life!
Here, I present that song, which is from the movie Anari:

किसी की मुस्कुराहटों पे हो निसार
किसी का दर्द मिल सके तो ले उधार
किसी के वास्ते हो तेरे दिल में प्यार
जीना इसी का नाम है

माना अपनी जेब से फ़कीर हैं
फिर भी यारों दिल के अमीर हैं

मिटे जो प्यार के लिए वो ज़िन्दगी
जले बहार के लिए वो ज़िन्दगी
किसी को हो न हो हमें तो ऐतबार
जीना इसी का नाम है

रिश्ता दिल से दिल के ऐतबार का
ज़िन्दा है हमी से नाम प्यार का

के मर के भी किसी को याद आयेंगे
किसी के आँसूओ में मुस्कुरायेंगे
कहेगा फूल हर कली से बार बार
जीना इसी का नाम है

A rough translation of the song is-

To offer oneself up for someone’s smiles,
To take a loan from someone’s grief,
To hold love for others in your heart,
This is what life is all about.
Granted, we are poor of means
Even then, we are rich at heart.
Life is, when it makes way for love
Life is, when it lights up for the spring
This we believe, though others may not
That this is what life is all about  
Of hearts related only by trust
The word ‘love’ lives on because of us
That we will live on in someone’s thoughts,
That we will smile, hidden in someone’s tears,
Such that a flower will teach every blossoming bud,
That this is what life is all about…
