Raste alag alag hain thhikaana to ek hai

Fareed Tonki’s “Raste Alag-Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai” is my all-time favourite lyrical message of religious tolerance, harmony and mutual respect. It drives home the poignant truism for the faithful that God, by whichever name, is after all One.

This message finds expression no better than in Ram Kumar Shankar’s vocals in the above qawwali, which is a part of the Sa Re Gam Ma album Paighaam-e-Huq (Naat, Manqabaat, Nasihat). Some YouTube postings attribute this number to the famed Shakar-Shambhu duo but it indeed is Ram Kumar Shankar.

I could not find out who tuned this soulful number, and request knowledgeable Atulites to fill-in this information gap.

The message in Fareed Tonki’s lyrics is so profound and simple that it needs no commentary to explain or embellish it.


Song-Raste alag alag hain thhikaana to ek hai(Ram Kumar Shankar NFS)(1986) Singer-Ram Kumar Shankar, Lyrics-Fareed Tonki
Chorus

Lyrics

Aa aa-aa aa

Raste alag-alag hain
thhikaana to ek hai

Raste alag-alag hain
thhikaana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai ae

Koi kehta hai ke kaashi mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke kaashi mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke kaabe mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke kaabe mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke girija mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke gurudwaare mein hai
Koi kehta hai ke gurudwaare mein hai
Numaaya zarre-zarre mein wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana aaa hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai

Zamaana kuchh bhi samjhe inko

Raste alag-alag hain thikaana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai

Aa aa-aa aa aa-aa

Hindu ka yeh kehna hai ke mandir mein aa
Hindu ka yeh kehna hai ke mandir mein aa
Muslim ka takaaza hai ke masjid mein aa
Muslim ka takaaza hai ke masjid mein aa
Kehte hain isaa’ii ke kaleesa men aa
Sikkhon ka yeh kehna hai ke gurudwaare mein aa
Sikkhon ka yeh kehna hai ke gurudwaare mein aa
Haaye haaye haaye haye ae ae
Aayi awaaz ke ganga jamuna kashi ka’aba tujhe in jhagdon se kya matlab hai
Tujhe sajde se matlab hai
Jahaan chaahe wahaan kar le
Numaaya zarre-zarre mein wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana aa hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai

Zamaana kuchh bhi samjhe inko
Humne to yeh jaana hai
Aji humne yeh jaana hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai ae

Aa-aa aa-aa aa-aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

Yahi mohan ki murli ne sada humko sunaaya hai
Sada humko sunaaya hai
Guru nanak se, gautam se, yahi updesh paaya hai
Yahi updesh paaya hai
Yahi raaz-e-aqeedat gandhiji ne bhi bataaya hai
Yahi aawaaz aayi hai jahaan par sar jhukaaya hai
Jahaan par sar jhukaaya hai
Numaaya zarre-zarre mein wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana aa hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai

Zamaana kuchh bhi samjhe inko
Humne to yeh jaana hai
Aji humne ye jaana hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai

Ho o o-o

Awwal allah noor paaya
Kudrat ke sab bande
Awwal allah noor paaya
Kudrat ke sab bande
Awwal allah noor paaya
Kudrat ke sab bande

Ek noor te sab jag upja
Kaun bhale kau mande
Numaaya zarre-zarre mein wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana aaa hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai
Wohi tasveer-e-jaana hai

Zamaana kuchh bhi samjhe
inko humne to yeh jaana hai
Aji humne yeh jaana hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai

Aa aa aa aa aa
Ye zazba-e-aqeedat hai
keh daala fareed humne
Ye zazba-e-aqeedat hai
keh daala fareed humne
Koi ise kuchh samjhe jaana hai yahi humne
Raste alag-alag, alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai
Raste alag-alag hain
thhikaana to ek hai

Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai
Manzil har ek shakhs ko paana to ek hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai ae
Raste alag-alag hain thhikaana to ek hai ae

I dare say Ram Kumar Shankar is son of Shankar of Shankar-Shambhu as the voice is very similar.
Chip off the old block; what say?
I use to hum the song. Famous and Classy. Short of National Anthem
Rajaji,
What a choice! NFS can beat any HFM any day.
gaane alag-alag hain
thhikaana to NFS hai !!!
