    “Azm-e-mohkam ho toh, hoti hai balaye pasta

    Oh I didnt realise that however, since I told you, let me take the trouble of explaining to you as well.

    Azm-e-Mohkam = strong determination
    balae = problems/hurdles n this context
    pasta = weak/insignificant

    The second phrase is self understood
    So if you ahve strong determination, your hurdles weaken;
    how many cyclones are turned back by the shore singlehandedly/alone.
