‘झ’
“झुका झुका के नज़र यूं उठाई जाती है”

jab bhi ye dil udaas hota hai
jaane kaun aas paas hota hai

These lines tickle the strands of the mind often, when in the moods of a tranquil nothingness – sometimes in the moments just as the self is drifting into sleep, or sometimes, on a journey in a relaxed coziness with nothing particular to do, or sometimes on lonely walks in the evenings. And the mind wonders, trying to put a face to a distant thought – “jaane kaun aas paas . . . hai”. That face is almost never distinct. Whose presence it is that I feel – the mind is yet to discern, and ascribe substance to the tenuous wisps that almost form the image, but then always fails to bring into a distinct focus. And the mind wanders, continues to seek – an unfinished image, trying to capture an elusive face, and a name that keeps bumping tantalizingly close to the edges of memory, yet always remains just a breath away from my grasp.

But the voice, the rendition of these lines ringing in the mind – no effort is even applied to identify, recognize and name. The memory knows this voice, even without assigning any name to it. And the soothing comfort that it brings into the mind, and savors the feeling as this comfort permeates into the being. Just the voice, and the voice alone. The sound of these lines brings that contented solace that simply gladdens the heart. Just the sound is so soothing that the mind, does not mind that the face I am searching for is not appearing close enough to be recognized. The sound just carries me along, taking in the delight of the journey of seeking, relishing the excursion, finding more joy in just the query “jaane kaun. . .”, as if not really wanting to know. Yes, that is the magic. The magic of the voice of Rafi Sb.

Some songs are such that they will keep with you in the moments of select and exclusive flights of particular emotions. The lines and the allied emotions listed and expressed above, are now a lifetime companions of this relaxed melancholia of serene lonesomeness. And so it this voice.

Presenting the next song in this series reliving the various flavours of his singing, moving forward as per the Devnagri alphabet. The film is ‘Mere Sartaaj’ from 1975. This film makes its début on our blog today. It is produced under the banner of Shakeel Pictures, Bombay. It is directed by the legendary AR Kardar. After the celebrated ‘Dil Diya Dard Liya’ from 1966, Kardar directed this, his last film as a director, after a gap of nine long years. This film signals the last of the career of AR Kardar, who is counted amongst the troika of top film makers in Hindi cinema, known as the ‘Movie Moguls’ (along with Mehboob Khan and K Asif).

The star cast includes Satish Kaul, Zahira, Roopesh Kumar, Padma Khanna, Jagdeep, Nadira, Nazir Husain, Helen, Alka, Trilok Kapoor, Santosh Kumar, Amir Ali, Ismail, Hakim, Ramesh Raj, S Kapoor, Devendra etc. The four songs in this film are written by Mehboob Sarvar and the music is composed by Ravi.

On screen, this wonderful ghazal is performed as a stage song by Satish Kaul. Sitting in the audience are Nazir Husain, Zahira, Roopesh Kumar and Jagdeep. It is apparent that the amorous messages in these lines, are directed towards Zahira, as is evident from the bashful responses emanating from the damsel.

Another memorable ghazal. And the voice of Rafi Sb.

Song – Jhuka Jhuka Ke Nazar Yoon Uthaai Jaati Hai (Mere Sartaaj) (1975) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Mehboob Sarvar, MD – Ravi

Lyrics

jhuka jhuka ke nazar
yoon uthaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar
yoon uthaai jaati hai
ke jaise shamma bujha kar
jalaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar
yoon uthaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

zabaan jalti hai jis ke bayaan karne se
zabaan jalti hai jis ke bayaan karne se
wo dastaan to nazar se sunaai jaati hai
wo dastaan to nazar se sunaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

anokhi baat hai
karti hai aur bhi ruswaa
anokhi baat hai
karti hai aur bhi ruswaa
dilon mein jitni
mohabbat chhupaai jaati hai
dilon mein jitni
mohabbat chhupaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

ye log dekhenge kaise
dhuaan mohabbat ka
ye log dekhenge kaise
dhuaan mohabbat ka
ye aag wo hai
jo dil mein lagaai jaati hai
ye aag wo hai
jo dil mein lagaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

churaa ke dil ko mere
muskuraa ke kehta hain
churaa ke dil ko mere
muskuraa ke kehta hain
churaane waali har ik
shai churaai jaati hai
churaane waali har ik
shai churaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

zamaana kyon hai mohabbat ke naam ka dushman
zamaana kyon hai mohabbat ke naam ka dushman
ye cheez wo hai jo
har dil mein paai jaati hai
ye cheez wo hai jo
har dil mein paai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar
yoon uthaai jaati hai
ke jaise shamma bujha kar
jalaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar
yoon uthaai jaati hai
jhuka jhuka ke nazar

———————————–——————-

झुका झुका के नज़र
यूं उठाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र
यूं उठाई जाती है
के जैसे शम्मा बुझा कर
जलाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र
यूं उठाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र

ज़बान जलती है जिसके बयान करने से
ज़बान जलती है जिसके बयान करने से
वो दास्तान तो नज़र
से सुनाई जाती है
वो दास्तान तो नज़र
से सुनाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र

अनोखी बात है
करती है और भी रुसवा
अनोखी बात है
करती है और भी रुसवा
दिलों में जितनी
मोहब्बत छुपाई जाती है
दिलों में जितनी
मोहब्बत छुपाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र

ये लोग देखेंगे कैसे
धुआँ मोहब्बत का
ये लोग देखेंगे कैसे
धुआँ मोहब्बत का
ये आग वो है
जो दिल में लगाई जाती है
ये आग वो है
जो दिल में लगाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र

चुरा के दिल को मेरे
मुस्कुरा के कहते हैं
चुरा के दिल को मेरे
मुस्कुरा के कहते हैं
चुराने वाली हर इक
शै चुराई जाती है
चुराने वाली हर इक
शै चुराई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र

ज़माना क्यों है मोहब्बत के नाम का दुश्मन
ज़माना क्यों है मोहब्बत के नाम का दुश्मन
ये चीज़ वो है जो
हर दिल में पाई जाती है
ये चीज़ वो है जो
हर दिल में पाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र
यूं उठाई जाती है
के जैसे शम्मा बुझा कर
जलाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र
यूं उठाई जाती है
झुका झुका के नज़र
