Gham nahin gar zindagi veeraan hai

Posted on: August 1, 2012


Today (1 August) is Meena Kumari’s (1 August 1932- 31 march 1972) birth anniversary. She achieved so much despite passing away so young. Incredibly, she had a thirty year long acting career beginning from the age of seven ! She acted in nearly ninety movies. She began to act in adult roles from 1949 onwards and her breakthrough came in 1952 with “Baiju Baawra” (1952). She won the inaugural Filmfare best actress award for this performance.

After acting in happy roles in 1950s, she later began to act predominantly in tragedy roles in 1960s and that is how she is remembered now.

On the occasion of her birth anniversary, here is a song from “Benazir” (1964). The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised as a stage song on Meena Kumari. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

Song-Gham nahin gar zindagi veeraan hai (Benazir)(1964) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-S D Burman
Meena Kumari

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

hamein apna ilaaj-e-dard-e-dil karna bhi aata hai
hum aise jeene waale hain jinhen marna bhi aata hai

gham nahin
gham nahin gar zindagi weeran hai
ishq par yeh jaan bhi qurbaan hai
gham nahin gar zindagi weeran hai
ishq par yeh jaan bhi qurbaan hai
ae ae ae ae
gham nahin gar zindagi weeran hai

hum ne sab kuchh kho ke
sab kuchh pa liya
hum ne sab kuchh kho ke
sab kuchh pa liya aa aa
apne dil ko har tarah
har tarah samjha liya
ab koyi hasrat hai
na armaan hai
ab koyi hasrat hai na armaan hai
ae ae ae ae
gham nahin gar zindagi weeran hai
ishq par yeh jaan bhi qurbaan hai
ae ae ae ae
gham nahin gar zindagi weeran hai

chand aansoo pyaar ke daulat nahin
chand aansoo pyaar ke daulat nahin
ro ke jeene mein koyi koyi lazzat nahin
een een
hans ke mar jaana wafa ki shaan hai
ishq par yeh jaan bhi qurbaan hai

Meena & Bimalda worked in four film: Parneeta, Yahudi, do bigha,Benzir.
This film was last film for Bimalda..
the film was a remake of 1945 Noor Jehan film ”Bhaaijaan”.both benazir and bhaaijaan were directed by s.khalil.
From this film on Gulzar/Meena friendship started.
In this film…Lata, Asha and Sumanji sing for Meena.
Good choice to upload this song/great memory too.
