Aap ki baaten karen ya apna afsaana kahen

Posted on: September 28, 2012


Lata, who turns 83 today has sung for hundreds of music directors. Some of these music directors had some special understanding with her. Madan Mohan was one of the music directors who made the most of Lata’s singing prowess.

Their collaboration gave us some unforgettable melodies. This blog has 304 Madan Mohan compositions. Lata’s voice is used in 140 of these songs, which makes for nearly half of all compositions of Madan Mohan.

On the occasion of Lata’s birthday, here is another superb Lata- Madan Mohan collaboration. This song is from “Dil Ki Raahen” (1973). This movie was produced under the banner of Majida Movies. B R Ishara was the director. The movie had Rehana Sultan, Rakesh Pandey, Solochana, Johny Wisky, Dilip Dutt etc in it. This movie with an adult theme had failed at the box office and Madan Mohan’s music had suffered as a result.

Madan Mohan’s music was in any case meant for the classes. Little wonder then that the music of this movie still sounds wonderful and it has a timeless quality about it.

Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.

Song-Aap ki baaten karen ya apna afsaana kahen (Dil Ki Raahen)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

aap ki baaten karen ya
apna afsaana kahen
aap ki baaten karen ya
apna afsaana kahen
hosh mein donon nahin hain
kis ko deewaana kahen
hosh mein donon nahin hain
kis ko deewaana kahen
aap ki baaten karen

aap ki baahon mein aakar
khil uthhi hai zindagi
aap ki baahon mein aakar
khil uthhi hai zindagi
in bahaaron ko bhala hum
kiska nazraana kahen
in bahaaron ko bhala hum
kiska nazraana kahen
aap ki baaten karen

raaz e ulfat zindagi bhar
raaz rehna chaahiye
raaz e ulfat zindagi bhar
raaz rehna chaahiye
aankhon hi aankhon mein ye
khaamosh afsaana kahen
aankhon hi aankhon mein ye
khaamosh afsaana kahen
aap ki baaten karen ya
apna afsaana kahen
hosh mein donon nahin hai
kis ko deewaana kahen
aap ki baaten karen

dil ke haathon
lutt ke hamne
kar liya ye faisla
dil ke haathon
lutt ke hamne
kar liyaa ye faisla….aaaa
aap ko apna kahen aur
dil ko begaana kahein aen
aapko apna kahein aur
dil ko begaana kahen aen
aap ki baathein karen yaa
apna afsaana kahen aen
hosh mein donon nahin
kis ko deewaana kahen

I just discovered this song few days ago and have been hooked to it. It’s so beautiful!
When I first heard it on radio I found it so familiar. May be because it sounds a like Mere dil mein tu hi tu hai from Bhavna

”आपकी बातें करें या अपना अफसाना कहें ….. ”
वाह … क्या खूब अफसाना है … दीवानगी की हद कुछ यूं तय हुई कि मदहोशी भी बेहोशी के आगोश मे आ गई ।

नक्श लायलपुरी साहिब के कलाम में इंसानी जज़्बात की ऐसी गहराई है जिसमें हमेशा डूब जाने को मन करता है … इसी खूबसूरत गजल का एक तीसरा शेर और है जो इस आडियो/विडियो में नहीं है पर वो मुझे इन दोनो शेरों से थोड़ा सा अधिक पसंद है …

दिल के हाथों लुट के हमने कर लिया ये फ़ैसला,
आपको अपना कहें और दिल को बेगाना कहें …
वल्लाह, कौन ना मिट जाए इस अजीब से दिलकश अंजाम पर ।

जैसे बांसुरी और सारंगी के बिना संगीतकार ‘रोशन’ अधूरे थे ठीक उसी तरंह मदन मोहन की जान तो सितार में ही बसती थी । ७० के दशक में पाश्चात्य संगीत का इतना शोर होने पर भी मदन जी ने सितार में भारतीयता के अहसास को कभी गुम नहीं होने दिया । ‘दिल की राहें’ के इस गीत और अन्य गीतों (खासकर रस्में उल्फत को निभाएं तो निभाएं कैसे) में मदन जी की सितार की जीवंत जुगलबंदी क्या खूब और बेमिसाल रही ।

”आपकी बातें करें …” गजल को लता जी ने भी इतना डूबकर गाया है कि तौबा तौबा … इतना डूबकर तो वो उन दिनों शायद कम ही गाती थी लेकिन मदन जी साथ थे तो इतना डूबना उनके लिए अवश्यंभावी था ।

dil ke haathon
lutt ke hamne
kar liyaa ye faislaa
dil ke haathon
lutt ke hamne
kar liyaa ye faislaa….aaaa
aapko apna kahein aur
dil ko begaanaa kahein aen
aapko apna kahein aur
dil ko begaanaa kahein aen
aapki baathein karein yaa
apnaa afsaanaa kahein aen
hosh mein donon nahin
kiss ko deewanaa kahein
