Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Katra katra mehki hai

Posted on: October 10, 2010


Today 10th october is Rekha’s birthday and on this occasion I have been posting songs picturised on Rekha. This is the sixth such song that I am discussing here.

This song is from “Ijaazat” (1987). This music of movie is yet another Gulzar-R D Burman collaboration. whenever they came together in a movie, they gave us some memorable songs. This movie, which is perhaps the last such association of the two, is no different. Almost all the songs of this movie have gone on to become immortal songs which is no mean feat at a time when the golden era of Hindi movie music was already over.

The lyrics of this song are so simple, but R D Burman has created a memorable song out of this seemingly ordinary looking lyrics. Asha Bhonsle excels as a singer in this song. This song is picturised on Rekha and Naseeruddin Shah.

And it is interesting to notice that out of the six Rekha songs that I have discussed today, as many as three have Gulzar as the lyricist and R D Burman as the music director. That tells us something about the calibre of this lyricist-music director pair.


Song-Katra katra mehki hai (Ijaazat) (1987) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

katraa katraa mehki hai
katraa katraa jeene do
zindagi hai,
zindagi hai,
bahne do
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main
pyaasi rahne do
rahne do
katraa katraa mehki hai
katraa katraa jeene do
zindagi hai,
zindagi hai,
bahne do
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main
pyaasi rahne do
rahne do

kal bhi to kuchh aisaa hi huaa thaa
neend mein thi tumne jab chhuaa thaa
girte girte baahon mein bachi main
ho sapne pe paanv pad gayaa thaa
sapnon mein rahne do
pyaasi hoon main pyaasi rahne do
rahne do
katraa katraa mehki hai
katraa katraa jeene do
zindagi hai
zindagi hai
bahne do
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main
pyaasi rahne do
rahne do

tumne to aakaash bichhaayaa
mere nange pairon mein zameen hai
hamen bhi tumhaari aarzoo hai
ho shaayad aise zindagi haseen hai
aarzoo mein
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main pyaasi rahne do
rahne do
katraa katraa mehki hai
katraa katraa jeene do
zindagi hai
zindagi hai
bahne do
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main
pyaasi rahne do
rahne do

hamne haseen kohre ke dhhuyen mein
shaayad aur paas aa gayi hoon
teri do nihgahon ke sahaare
dekho to kahaan tak aa gayi hoon
kohre mein bahne do
pyaasi hoon main pyaasi rahne do
rahne do
katraa katraa mehki hai
katraa katraa jeene do
zindagi hai,
zindagi hai,
bahne do
bahne do
pyaasi hoon main
pyaasi rahne do
rahne do
rahne do

शुक्रिया इस गीत को आप ने यहाँ पोस्ट किया.

Hey Atul
thanks for putting my request after so many months. only ek problem. its Katra Katra Mehki Hai not Kat Katra Milti hai. anyway, thanks a lot again

I love your site, I really do!
Just one correction. The words of this song are ”qatra, qatra MILTI hai”. Not ”qatra, qatra MEHKI hai”.

Won national awards for Gulzar and Asha Bhonsle.
