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

Koi ye kaise bataaye ke wo tanha kyun hai

Posted on: January 19, 2012

On the occasion of Kaifi Azmi’s birthday (19th january), we are discussing a few songs written by Kaifi Azmi.

Here is a song from “Arth” (1982). This song, which is picturised as a get together song, is sung by Jagjeet Singh. It is picturised on Raj Kiran, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda etc. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kuldeep Singh Chitra Singh and Jagjit Singh.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me independently by Prakashchandra as well as Khyati Bhatt.



Song-Koi ye kaise bataaye ke wo tanha kyun hai (Arth)(1982) Singer-Jagjeet Singh, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Chitra Singh & Jagjit Singh


koi yeh kaise bataaye ke
woh tanha kyun hai
woh jo apna thha wohi
aur kisi ka kyun hai
yehi duniya hai to phir
aisi yeh duniya kyun hai
yehi hota hai to aakhir
yehi hota kyun hai

ek zara haath badha de
to pakad len daaman
uske seene mein sama jaaye
hamari dhadkan
itni kurbat hai to phir
faasala itna kyun hai

dil e barbaad se nikla nahin
ab tak koi
ek lute ghar pe diya karta hai
dastak koi
aas jo toot gayi
phir se bandhaata kyun hai

tum masarrat ka kaho ya
isse gham ka rishta
kehte hain pyaar ka rishta hai
janam ka rishta
hai janam ka jo yeh rishta
to badalta kyun hai

The music composers of this movie are(husband and wife jodi)
“Chitra singh and Jagjit Singh”,Not KULDEEP SINGH.


thnak u Prakashchandraji for sending lyrics of this gem to Atul.
but i am sure atul is not wrong abt the MD


Few sites on the internet says MD is Kuldeep Singh, but I have one CD of Kaifi Azmi and for the song, Tum Itana jo muskura rahe ho…the credit is given to Jagjit Singhji (did not mention Chitraji’s name on it). So, looks like it’s Jagjitji unless this particular song is composed by KS. Arunji will be the right person to clear the cloud of confusion.

The Music Director for ARTH-1982 was
Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh.
In 1983,the film won BEST ACTRESS-SILVER LOTUS AWARD for Shabana Azmi.
In1984,the film won Best Actress-Shabana Azmi,
Best Screenplay-Mahesh Bhat and
Best supporting actress-Rohini Hattangadi
Film Fare Awards.


I have seen the title sequences of the movie ARTH,
it was clearly written as MUSIC : Chitra & Jagjit Singh”


Yes, you are right. I just watched the movie after 20 years, and in the title, it says “Jagjit and Chitra” as a MD.
-Khyati Bhatt


Here is the video link for the title card of Movie ARTH showing Jagjit Singh and chitra singh as Music directors of the movie:


“Maan Gaye Ustad” ji aapko. 🙂



At 00:59 of the above video clip you can see the music director`s name(of ARTH movie) as CHITRA & JAGJIT SINGH:)





Abhi Correction kar hi rahe ho toh, Arth ka Music directors ka naam bhi Correction kar lo na Please
-Arth Movie kaa 3 gaanon kaa music directors ka naam “Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh”,(I have provided above the link to the title sequences of the movie showing the movie`s music director`s name)Its Not Kuldeep Singh(He I think gave music for Ankush and Saath Saatj)

Hope You don`t mind me reminding you at regular intervals.
