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

Kisi ko banaanaa kisi ko mitaanaa

Posted on: June 26, 2011

Here is a song from a forgotten movie called “Sheeshaa” (1952). I had never heard this song before. After listening to this song, I wondered how a gem like this had so few takers among music lovers.

This song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

This movie was a B grade movie and I have little idea about the picturisation of this song. For all one knows, this song could well be picturised on Sajjan, seeing that he is one of the few names that comes up when one tries to find details about this movie.

This song is a forgotten gem that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

Song-Kisi ko banaanaa kisi ko mitaanaa (Sheesha) (1952) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ghulam Mohammad


kisi ko banaanaa,
kisi ko mitaanaa
kisi ko banaanaa,
kisi ko mitaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa

hain donon hi insaan
paley ek chaman mein
wo hi ek si jaan
donon ke tan mein
magar koi odhe hai
phoolon ki chaadar
phoolon ki chaadar
hai mushqil kisi ke
liye sar chhupaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa

hain sar par kisi ke
bahaaron ke saaye
kisi par balaaon ke baadal hain chhaaye
kisi ke liye sirf
aansoo ki boonden
aansoo ki boonden
kisi ke liye motiyon kaa khazaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa

koi chain se hai,
tarastaa hai koi
kisi ke ujadne se bastaa hai koi
na jaane ye andher kab tak rahegaa
kab tak rahegaa
zameen ek ki doosre kaa thikaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa
ajab hai ye duniyaa,
ajab ye zamaanaa
