Zindagi haseen hai zindagi se pyaar kar

Posted on: February 24, 2013


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Remembering Talat Mehmood (24 february 1924- 9 may 1998) on the anniversary of his birth today(24 february 2013).

The soft velvety voice that has lent itself to a wonderful array of musical creations, and made an indelible mark in the annals of Hindi film and non-film music. Whether the song is of happiness or it is of sadness, the first thing that comes to mind on hearing Talat Sb’s voice begin to sing, is a feeling of utmost comfort. A feeling that releases all other compulsions in the mind, and the mind wants to sit back and relax and just listen to this soft sound serenading the matters of heart.

This song is a forgotten gem from an unreleased film from the 1960s. The film is ‘Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’. Not much other information is available about this film, except that it was planned under the banner of Ismail Films. Thankfully, the songs of this film got recorded and this treasure has escaped the anonymity of extinction. Whether the film storyline or the cast of actors was decided or not, is not known. But the information about the music of this film is known, based on three 78 rpm records that did get made for this film. The music is by the redoubtable Khayyaam Sb. The authorship of the six available songs is shared between Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Jaan Nissar Akhtar. This particular song is written by Jaan Nissar Akhtar Sb.

Celebrating the anniversary, and paying a wholesome tribute and accolades to this peerless singing voice. Listen to this wonderful number, savor the lovely flow of the words, as they ride on the strings and rhythms of this well paced melody. An uplifting song of confident encouragement that urges the heart to enjoy even the sadness in life. A wonderful gem of a song.

Enjoy.

zindagi haseen hai, zindagi se pyaar kar
phool hon ke khaar hon, tu sabhi se pyaar kar

It is wonderful, this life
It is beautiful
Learn to love it
Love to love it
Be not distracted by what comes your way
Whether it is flowers or thorns
Love and adore both
Love and adore all

(NOTE: khaar = thorn)

raag rang roshni is chaman mein kya nahin
kaun si khushi nahin, kaun sa nashaa nahin
dil mein ho jo hauslaa gham bhi be-mazaa nahin
mastiyon mein doob jaa, bekhudi se pyaar kar

There is music, there are colors
There is a shining brightness in this garden of life
Life is full
With every happiness, every euphoria
If there is confidence and faith in heart
Then even the sorrows have a pleasure to relish
Immerse yourself in the ecstasies of life
And fall in love with the joys beyond the self

aankh uthaa tujhe agar khud pe aitbaar hai
subha dil-nasheen hai, shaam sur-bahaar hai
har samaa tere liye kab se beqaraar hai
dhoop ko galey lagaa, chaandni se pyaar kar

Have trust in yourself
Raise your vision and see
The mornings are endearing to the heart
And the evenings are filled with music of spring
Embrace the sunshine for what it is
Love the moonlight, for what it is

har kadam pe sau diye jal rahe hain raah mein
ek na ek baat hai har jawaan nigaah mein
zindagi ko saunp de ishq ki panaah mein
dil pukaarne lagey, har kisi se pyaar kar

A hundred lamps are lit for you
Every step of your way
Every glance is young at heart
And has a tale to tell
Offer this life to the sanctuary of love
And your heart will sing out and say
Love and cherish all in this life

Lyrics

zindagi haseen hai
zindagi se pyaar kar
zindagi se pyaar kar
phool hon ke khaar hon
tu sabhi se pyaar kar
tu sabhi se pyaar kar
phool hon ke khaar hon
tu sabhi se pyaar kar
tu sabhi se pyaar kar

raag rang roshni
is chaman mein kya nahin
kaun si khushi nahin
kaun sa nashaa nahin
dil mein ho jo hauslaa
gham bhi be-mazaa nahin
mastiyon mein doob jaa
bekhudi se pyaar kar
bekhudi se pyaar kar
zindagi haseen hai
zindagi se pyaar kar
zindagi se pyaar kar

aankh uthhaa tujhe agar
khud pe aitbaar hai
subha dil-nasheen hai
shaam sur-bahaar hai
har samaa tere liye
kab se beqaraar hai
dhoop ko galey lagaa
chaandni se pyaar kar
chaandni se pyaar kar
zindagi haseen hai
zindagi se pyaar kar
zindagi se pyaar kar

har kadam pe sau diye
jal rahe hain raah mein
ek na ek baat hai
har jawaan nigaah mein
zindagi ko saunp de
ishq ki panaah mein
dil pukaarne lagey
har kisi se pyaar kar
har kisi se pyaar kar
dil pukaarne lagey
har kisi se pyaar kar
har kisi se pyaar kar
phool hon ke khaar hon
tu sabhi se pyaar kar
tu sabhi se pyaar kar

ज़िंदगी हसीन है
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर
फूल हों के खार हों
तू सभी से प्यार कर
तू सभी से प्यार कर
फूल हों के खार हों
तू सभी से प्यार कर
तू सभी से प्यार कर

राग रंग रोशनी
इस चमन में क्या नहीं
कौन सी खुशी नहीं
कौन सा नशा नहीं
दिल में जो हो हौसला
ग़म भी बे-मज़ा नहीं
मस्तियों में डूब जा
बेखुदी से प्यार कर
बेखुदी से प्यार कर
ज़िंदगी हसीन है
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर

आँख उठा तुझे अगर
खुद पे एतबार है
सुबहा दिल नशीन है
शाम सुर बहार है
हर समा तेरे लिए
कब से बेक़रार है
धूप को गले लगा
चाँदनी से प्यार कर
चाँदनी से प्यार कर
ज़िंदगी हसीन है
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर
ज़िंदगी से प्यार कर

हर कदम पे सौ दिये
जल रहे हैं राह में
एक न एक बात है
हर जवान निगाह में
ज़िंदगी को सौंप दे
इश्क़ की पनाह में
दिल पुकारने लगे
हर किसी से प्यार कर
हर किसी से प्यार कर
दिल पुकारने लगे
हर किसी से प्यार कर
हर किसी से प्यार कर
फूल हों के खार हों
तू सभी से प्यार कर
तू सभी से प्यार कर

Sudhirji,
Thanks for remembering Talat Saab’s b’day and introducing this song. Never heard before, may be because it’s from URF. Any idea on who is playing the sarod? Is he the the great maestro Ali Akbar Khan?
