Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 7
——————————————————————–

Sudhir ji, got in touch with us Atulwaasis and told us that there is a HUGE milestone coming up on the blog.

I had no clue that it was this huge. With my little knowledge of maths, I did some calculation and it works to an average of around 3 posts a day for the last 9 years. If that just seems like a number to you – you either do not understand hard work when you see it, or you are just a passer by seeing this blog for the first time.

While I still wonder how it is even possible to have such commitment and endurance I am reminded of what Atul ji often tells us – this is a “Labour of Love”. And then it all falls in place and makes so much sense. Atul ji has been a beacon of light, a guru, a nostalgia maker, the man who got all us crazy Atulwaasis together.

While it might seem to a passer by having a look at the blog that it is just a place for a bunch of old hindi songs aficionados, what Atul ji, Sudhir Ji, Arun ji et al are doing is to make sure that knowledge of old hindi songs is preserved for eternity. This in itself is one of the biggest achievements of Atul ji.

He is no less than a Mahendra Singh Dhoni for all of us; who has always kept his cool, given any situation.

An amazing human being who happens to manage work / home / his pets and his blog with equal aplomb. How all these stalwarts manage their time so effectively and beautifully has always fascinated me.

I am one of those Atulwaasis, who has not really contributed much to the blog except for a handful of posts and being part of Project YIPPEEEE!! I was looking for a song that kind of resonates what the blog, Atul ji and Atulwaasis mean to me, and I wanted a song that was full of emotions and feelings and rendered beautifully. That got me to this song that we at home listen to very often. Most of the time it is the first song that gets played when we get into the car. And every time one listens to it, we are bound to be filled with emotions. My wife is a big Sonu Nigam fan and pretty much every time she listens to this song, she is in tears.

This is not an old song, what this blog is all about, but we have posted songs that are new and still good to listen to. One of the singers of today who are really good and is a treat to listen to is none other than Sonu Nigam. Amazing talent and is just a sheer pleasure to listen to him sing.

This particular song is from a remake of an Amitabh Bachchan movie called ‘Agneepath’ (1990). The newer version starred Hrithik Roshan in the role played by Amitabh. For some reason, Hrithik’s mother keeps his sister away from him for a long time and when she is a teenager, the heroine, Priyanka Chopra gets him to meet her for his birthday, and the brother gets so emotional that tries to express his feelings of love and affection for his sister through this song.

I am sure I have not been able to express my love for this extended family of mine. So let me say, thank you Atul ji for letting us be part of the family and be part of this wonderful journey you are taking us on.

Please sit back and enjoy this beautiful song… we love you Atul ji!


Song – Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin Baaki (Agneepath) (2012) Singers – Sonu Nigam, Lyrics – Amitabh Bhattacharya, MD – Ajay-Atul
Chorus

Lyrics

abhi..
mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi
jagi..
dhadkan nayi
jaana zinda hoon main toh abhi
kuch aisi lagan iss lamhe mein hai
yeh lamha kahaan tha meraaa
ab hai saamne
isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa
khushiyaan choom loon
yaa ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa

ho.. abhi mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi

ho… dhoop mein jalte hue tan ko
chhaaya pedh ki mil gayi
roothe bacche ki hansi jaise
phuslaane se phir khil gayi
kuch aisa hee ab mehsoos dil ko ho raha hai
barson ke puraane zakhmn pe marham laga sa hai
kuch aisa reham
iss lamhe mein hai
ye lamha kahaan tha meraa
ab hai saamne.. isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara
khushiyaan choom loon
ya ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी
जगी
धड़कन नई
जाना ज़िंदा हूँ मैं तो अभी
कुछ ऐसी लगन
लम्हे में है
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

हो॰॰॰ अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी

हो॰॰॰ धूप में जलते हुये तन को
छाया पेड़ की मिल गई
रूठे बच्चे की हंसी जैसे
फुसलाने से फिर खिल गई
कुछ ऐसा ही अब महसूस दिल को हो रहा है
बरसों के पुराने ज़ख़्मों पे मरहम लगा सा है
कुछ ऐसा रहम
इस लम्हे में
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

Thank you Sudhir ji, for both posting and writing the hindi lyrics of this song. Atul ji.. We love you.. let the party continue! :).

Wonderful post, the emotions come out very strongly.

Like you say, Pradeep, this blog is building a repository for posterity. That too, with a lot of care and diligence, no quick short-cuts. One can’t put a price on that.

What Atul has done, and continues to do, is just mind-blowingly amazing.

Thank you Raja ji. No doubts about it.. what Atul ji has created is nothing short of amazing!

Pradeep ji,
A very good article, coming from the bottom of the heart !
You have truely mentioned about the ‘ Labour of Love ‘. Whatever the Labour pains, the show continues unabated. It is his passion that keeps the Blog running.
Thanks for stressing this point.
Sometimes I dream that the Blog is converted into a full fledged Site on the Internet. Is it possible ?
-AD

Arun ji, yes.. apart from the blog being a repository, we would need a backup archive of the treasure trove that is our world! I think it is time for us to start a Project Mobile / Online / Archive. Will message the group.
