Likhe jo khat tujhe

Posted on: February 17, 2009


I have posted quite a few “chitthi” songs from 1970,1980 and 1990s. It is not that such songs were not there in the earlier decades. Not at all. There were such “Chitthi” songs in 1960s too.

Here is one such song sung by Rafi and picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. The movie is “Kanyaadaan” (1968). Neeraj was the lyricist and Shanker Jaikishan had composed the music.

The “chitthi” songs of later decades talked about the feelings of wife/ other relatives who were separated because of unavoidable and difficult circumstances, whereas this song from 1960 is a love song in comparison. As the picturisation shows, the two people are very much united in this song, unlike the “Chitthi” songs that I have posted earlier.

Song-Likhe jo khat tujhe (Kanyadaan) (1968 ) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Neeraj, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

likhe jo khat tujhe
wo teri yaad mein
hazaaron rang ke
nazaare ban gaye
likhe jo khat tujhe
wo teri yaad mein
hazaaron rang ke
nazaare ban gaye
saweraa jab huaa
to phool ban gaye
jo raat aayi to
sitaare ban gaye
likhe jo khat tujhe

koyi naghmaa kahin goonjaa,
kahaa dil ne ye tu aayi
kahin chatki kali koyi,
main ye samjhaa tu sharamaayi
koyi khushboo kahin bikhri,
lagaa ye zulf laharaayi
likhe jo khat tujhe
wo teri yaad mein
hazaaron rang ke
nazaare ban gaye
saweraa jab huaa
to phool ban gaye
jo raat aayi to
sitaare ban gaye
likhe jo khat tujhe

fizaa rangeen adaa rangeen,
ye ithlaanaa ye sharmaanaa
ye angdaayi ye tanhaayi,
ye tarsaa kar chale jaanaa
banaa de ga kahin mujhko,
jawaan jaadoo ye deewaanaa
likhe jo khat tujhe
wo teri yaad mein
hazaaron rang ke
nazaare ban gaye
saweraa jab huaa
to phool ban gaye
jo raat aayi to
sitaare ban gaye
likhe jo khat tujhe

jahaan tu hai wahaan main hoon,
mere dil ki tu dhadkan hai
musaafir main tu manzil hai,
main pyaasaa hoon tu saawan hai
meri duniyaa ye nazren hain,
meri jannat ye daaman hai
likhe jo khat tujhe
wo teri yaad mein
hazaaron rang ke
nazaare ban gaye
saweraa jab huaa
to phool ban gaye
jo raat aayi to
sitaare ban gaye
likhe jo khat tujhe
