Meri zindagi ke chiraag ko teri berukhi ne bujhaa diyaa

Posted on: July 15, 2010


Here is a ghazal from a 1967 movie called “Jaal”.

This ghazal is written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and it is sung by Lata. It is picturised on Mala Sinha.

If one listens to this ghazal, one will be convinced that it is a Madan Mohan composition, and indeed Lata, who called Madan Mohan the king of Ghazal wanted this ghazal to bear the hallmark of Madan Mohan.

But there lies the catch. This song is not a Madan Mohan composition ! Laxmikant Pyarelal are the music directors for this movie.

It was Lata, who requested Laxmikant Pyarelal to come up with a Madan Mohan style composition and the then upcoming music director duo responded by coming up with this fine composition.

It is a superb song which is picturised beautifully on Mala sinha.

So here is this nice (and rare) classy song from “Jaal” (1967).

Lyrics

meri zindagi ke chiraag ko
teri berukhi ne bujhaa diyaa
meri zindagi ke chiraag ko
teri berukhi ne bujhaa diyaa
tere raaste ki main khaakh hoon
mujhe aaj toone bataa diyaa
meri zindagi ke chiraag ko
teri berukhi ne bujhaa diyaa
meri zindagi ke chiraag ko

tujhe paa ke bhi teri justaju
tujhe milke bhi teri aarzoo
tujhe paa ke bhi teri justaju
tujhe milke bhi teri aarzoo
tujhe milke bhi teri aarzoo
tere paas laake naseeb ne
mujhe kitni door hataa diyaa
tere raaste ki main khaakh hoon
mujhe aaj toone bataa diyaa
meri zindagi ke chiraag ko

tu wo phool jismein wafaa nahin
main wo dard jiski dawaa nahin
tu wo phool jismein wafaa nahin
main wo dard jiski dawaa nahin
main wo dard jiski dawaa nahin
tujhe dekhkar jo ye lab hanse
teri aarzoo ne rulaa diyaa
tere raaste ki main khaakh hoon
mujhe aaj toone bataa diyaa
meri zindagi ke chiraag ko

The orchestration is all LP ( no Madan Mohan style there )

High pitch Lata songs were the craze those days. In that context , yes Madan Mohan inspired.
