Aadmi ki talaash
———————————–

abhi mara nahin zindaa hai aadmi shaayad
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
badan ki andhi guphaa mein chhupa hua hogaa
badha ke haathh
har ek raushni ko gul kar do
hawaayen tez hain jhande lapet kar rakh do
jo ho sake to unn aankhon pe pattiyan kas do
na koyi paaon ki aahat
na saanson ki awaaz
daraa huaa hai woh
kuchh aur bhi na dar jaaye
badan ki andhhi guphaa se na kuchh kar jaaye
yahin kahin use dhoondho
wo aaj sadiyon baad
udaas udaas hai
khaamosh hai
akelaa hai
na jaane kab koyi pasli phadak utthe us ki
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
barh anaho to use phir libaas pehnaa do
andheri aankhon mein sooraj ki aag dehkaa do
bahut badi hai yeh basti kahin bhi dafnaa do
abhi maraa nahin
zinda hai aadmi shaayad

Duniya jise kehte hainjaadu kaa Khilona hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai

Nida Fazli , full name Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 to 8 February 2016) is referring to the mesmerising charm of all things worldly and the fickle mindedness of the self, which keeps hankering after the things not gained, which may or may not be within reach.

The name ‘Nida’ means “to call”. In easy urdu /hindi it would mean “pukaar”. I had considered this name for my daughter. But I was dissuaded from this name, due to the meaning being so ambiguous. Because a call could be happy and good as the “Azaan”, or it could also be a call for attention is bad times or when one is in difficulty or desperation i.e. pukaar.

Here a song from the 1981 film “Aahistaa aahistaa” as part of for ‘dheere dheere songs’ series, written by Nida Fazli. This is a melodious composition by Khayyam. I am including ‘aahistaa aahistaa” in this series as it essentially means the same as ‘dheere dheere”.

Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog so far :-

Song Date posted
Kabhi kisi ko muqqammal jahaan nahin miltaa 31 july 2010
Maana teri nazar mein 9 July 2012
Jab koi khwaab chamakta hai haqeeqat ban ke 31 july 2020

Padmini Kolhapure and Kunal Kapoor are singing this song on screen. This was a complicated story, I think based on a novel, with Shammi Kapoor and Nanda being the older generation and host of other actors in the cast.

Here is a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Anwar, as a tribute to Poet Nida Fazli on his birth anniversary.

Lyrics

Nazar se phool chunti hai nazar
nazar se phool chunti hai nazar
aahistaa ahistaa
aahistaa aahistaa
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa

duaayen de rahe hain ped
mausam jogiyaa saa hai

tumhaara saathh hai jab se
har ek manzar nayaa sa hai
duaayen de rahe hain ped
mausam jogiyaa saa hai

tumhaara saathh hai jab se
har ek manzar nayaa sa hai
haseen lagne lagi har reh-guzar
haseen lagne lagi har reh-guzar
aahistaa aahistaa
aahistaa aahistaa
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
aahista aahistaa
aahistaa aahistaa

bahot achche ho tum
bahot achcheho tum
phir bhi hamen tum se
hayaa kyun hai

tumhi bolo hamaare
darmiyaan ye
faasla kyun hai
bahot achcheho tum
phir bhi hamen tum se
hayaa kyun hai

tumhi bolo hamaare
darmiyaan ye faasla kyun hai
mazaa jab hai ke
tay ho ye safar
mazaa jab hai ke
tay ho ye safar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa

muhobbat rang laati hai magar
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa

hamesha se akelepan mein koi
muskuraata hai

ye rishtaa pyaar ka hai
aasmaan se ban ke aataa hai
hamesha se akelepan mein koi
muskuraata hai

ye rishtaa pyaar ka hai
aasmaan se ban ke aataa hai
magar hoti hai dil ko ye khabar
magar hoti hai dil ko ye khabar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa

muhobbat rang laati hai magar
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa
nazar se phool chunti hai nazar
nazar se phool chunti hai nazar
aahista aahistaa
aahista aahistaa
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
muhobbat rang laati hai magar
aahista aahistaa
aahistaa ahistaa

Thank you for reading the post and commenting. This was a popular song with ‘kabhi kisi ko mukammal” and “maana teri nazar mein”.

Lovely songs. Nida Fazli’s lyrics shine. So does Khayyam’s music.

AHISTA AHISTA was a remake of 1969 Kannada movie GEJJE POOJE ( ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಪೂಜೆ ) by , arguably the best director, Puttanna Kanagal. Based on M K Indira’s novel of the same name, the movie starring Gangadhar, Kalpana and Leelavati was a huge commercial and critical success winning many awards at the National and State levels. It was a huge haul at the State awards :
Best Film, Director, Actress, Supporting Actress, Screenplay, Dialogues and Cinematography.
Arati, who went on to be the Number One heroine of Kannada movies, who later married Kanagal, was introduced in the movie. Vijay Bhaskar’s music with songs by P B Srinivas, S Janaki and B K Sumitra is rated highly among the evergreen scores.

The movie was remade : in Tamil _ THALIYA SALANGAI ..Muthuraman, Vanisri, Manorama.
in Telugu _ KALYANA MANDAPAM… Shobhan Babu, Kanchana, Anjali Devi ( and Baby Sridevi. )
Interestingly, in the all 3 versions, Pandari Bai ( of BHABHI fame ) essayed the same role, of the Hero’s mother.

Nahm ji,

One got really interested in Nida Fazli after that quote in the film “अय्यारी “|

मन बैरागी, तन अनुरागी, कदम कदम दुश्वारी है
जीवन जीना सहल ना जानो बहुत बड़ी फनकारी है |

औरों जैसे होकर भी हम बाइज़्ज़त हैं बस्ती में
कुछ लोगों का सीधापन है, कुछ अपनी अय्यारी है |

But that one quoted by you मिल जाये तो मिट्टी हैं, खो जाये तो सोना है is absolutely priceless and is symptomatic of the rat race we are all in.

By the way, should his name not be spelt as FAAZLI (=फ़ाज़ली)? Is the name derived from फ़ाज़िल, which maybe Arabic for knowledgeable?

I hope I got the spellings right.

Thank you Nahm ji for the beautiful write up – wish it could be longer.

Looking forward to more about निदा फ़ाज़ली |

With warm regards

PARTHA CHANDA

Sir,

Thanks for your encouraging comments and the quotes from ” A’yyari ” which are also notable for the satire. Shakespear did say that “the world is a stage and we are all actors”.

The word spelled Fazli or Faazli, possibly relates to Fazal, which means benevolence or grace.

Regards.
