Ek kissa hai, Radha ka. There is a tale, of a girl named Radha. She was in her teens, ‘kamsin’ as they say in parlance – young and innocent in years; sporting dark tresses that reached her knees; her supremely fair and flawless skin as if made from milk; her eyes – bright, with a depth enough for a smitten heart to drown itself. She would come to the terrace to hang out the laundry for drying. Iqbal, smitten as he was with the beauty of this young lady, would wait everyday to fill his heart with her moving images. The fascination, the infatuation remained as it is, unexpressed – for he could never muster up enough courage to say or do anything to express his feelings. Fears and apprehensions of many kinds held him back. Radha, remained a puppy love dream – forever. But is sure did make a poet out of that obsessed heart that could not express itself to its beloved.

He penned the following lines, as his initiation into the world of verse writing,

खेंचते हैं अपनी जानिब यार ये गेसू मुझे
आ रही है हर तरफ से प्यार की खुशबू मुझे
एक राधा से हुई है जब से मेरी दोस्ती
सारी दुनिया कह रही है आजकल हिन्दू मुझे

These tresses of my beloved, beckon me
The fragrance of love is diffused all around me
Since my heart has made a friend named radha
All the world is calling me a hindu these days

By his own admission, he would never have taken to pen and paper, if by some God sent blessing, this infatuation would have ripened into a reciprocated affair, and if the two would have been betrothed. The world of letters, and the world of cinema would have been robbed of one of the best romantic poets of the Golden Era of the Hindi film music.

Iqbal Hussain, born on 15th April, 1927 in Jaipur, grew up to be known by his pen name more than anything else – Hasrat. And the city of his origin came in to complete his identity recognition – Jaipuri.

He passed away this day (17th September) in 1999 after a scintillating career of almost five decades as a songwriter. The unsuccessful saga of his first love was in any case immortalized. The famous aria venerating the identity of the romantic messaging device called the ‘प्रेम पत्र’ (love letter), was originally written for his Radha, of the terrace visits. The song it became is – “Ye Mera Prem Patra Padh Kar” (film ‘Sangam, 1964).

It is a temptation to revisit all the great poetry he has written, that has become popular and enduring. But then even this one night, sleepless per force, would be inadequate to do justice. But in any case, that sampling may just be a reprise for all the dear melodies that I am sure all readers and lovers of this music, have stored away in their memories.

And so I just introduce this one song today. This wonderful melody, for the longest of the time, I was under the impression that this one is already posted here. But today I discovered that it is still in waiting. The film is ‘Badnaam’ from 1952. The music director is Basant Prakash (brother of Khemchand Prakash). The baritone rich singing voice is that of Shankar Dasgupta. The verses, of course, are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri.

The first sub line of this poem imitates the well known starting words of the famous she’er – “Ye Ishq Nahin Asaan, Bas Itna Samajh Lijey. . .” from a ghazal by the maestro Jigar Moradabadi. But after that it goes on to take a powerful identity of its own with lines like “. . .zakhmon mein chhupa lena, tasveer e mohabbat ko. . .” and “. . .khud lut ke sikha dena, duniya ko wafa karna. . .”.

An immense ghazal – words, composition, rendition – all are superlative. With memories of Hasrat Sb, enjoy this wonderful creation.

[Author’s Note: The episode of the poet’s first love is adapted from the definitive article on Hasrat Jaipuri, from the book ‘Hindi Filmon Ke Geetkar’ by Anil Bhargav.]

Song – Ye Ishq Nahin Aasaan, Kaanton Pe Jiya Karna (Badnaam) (1952) Singer – Shankar Dasgupta, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Basant Prakash

Lyrics

ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna
ashqon ka zehar hardam
khush ho ke piya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

kehte hain jise ulfat
ye khel hai sholon ka
kehte hain jise ulfat
ye khel hai sholon ka
chupchaap hi jal jaana
hargiz na gila karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

zakhmon mein chhupa lena
tasveer e mohabbat ko
tasveer e mohabbat ko
zakhmon mein chhupa lena
tasveer e mohabbat ko
tasveer e mohabbat ko
khud lut ke sikha dena
duniya ko wafa karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

aise to kai toofaan
raahon mein sataayenge
aise to kai toofaan
raahon mein sataayenge
ghabra ken a darr jaana
manzil pe badha karna
kaanton pe jiya karna
ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान
काँटों पे
काँटों पे जिया करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान
काँटों पे जिया करना
काँटों पे जिया करना
अशकों का ज़हर हरदम
खुश हो के पिया करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

कहते हैं जिसे उलफत
ये खेल है शोलों का
कहते हैं जिसे उलफत
ये खेल है शोलों का
चुपचाप ही जल जाना
हरगिज़ ना गिला करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

ज़ख़्मों में छुपा लेना
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
ज़ख़्मों में छुपा लेना
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
खुद लुट के सीखा देना
दुनिया को वफा करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

ऐसे तो कई तूफान
राहों में सताएंगे
ऐसे तो कई तूफान
राहों में सताएंगे
घबरा के न डर जाना
मंज़िल पे बढ़ा करना
काँटों पे जिया करना
ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान
काँटों पे जिया करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 20
———————————————————————

And now, continuing the saga of the 10th anniversary celebrations. 🙂

First off, thanks to Mahesh ji for announcement that “The last batsman is in”. Quite true, and well, almost. One reason (of the many excuses that I am going to converse about today 🙂 ), is that, quite truly, I was waiting for at least one more contribution to land in, before I announce the closure of celebrations. But as the events transpired, I realized that waiting for that article would probably be like waiting for Mr. Godot.

I refer to Ben Kayti, who has promised me that she will be sending in a write up, but then – well, days have just been following one after the other. In an earlier communication she mentioned that she was little down in health, and that she has a doctor’s appointment. And then – silence. One day, two days – messages on WhatsApp, emails, phone calls, voice mail remained unanswered. When no response came, I had no option but to press the panic button. I tried to contact three other people in the family. And finally, her daughter-in-law responded to my SOS. The family is out to a vacation – Glacier National Park in Montana, where no connectivity is available. The vacationers also include the other two members of the family who I was attempting to get in touch. So it was a relief to know that all was well, and also somewhat vexing that there was a communication gap that created some worries. I will return to this and tie up the loose end left here, and continue with the mainstream of celebration.

‘19’ seems to be a lucky number for me. Quite a few significant things in my life are connected with this number. And thus, not surprisingly, I get connected with this blog that celebrates its birthday on 19th July. And then, more, I was not planning it to be so – my (previous) post comes at 19th in the series. Ah yes, as Atul ji has mentioned often, there is a hand of providence with what goes on with this blog. And let me add one more very interesting ‘19’ phenomena. As per the statistics that the WordPress maintains, the date which has had the highest number of visitors on this blog (10,630) is also a 19 – 19th October, 2011.

On 14th January this year, the visitor’s ticker on our blog home page turned into an 8 digit number for the first time. We clocked in 10 millionth visitor that evening (IST) – and it translates to 1 crore, in domestic terminology. As I write to complete this article, the ticker has already gone past 10 million 6 hundred thousand, clocking in on average ~ 3,000 visitors per day in this year so far. I would like to give it a name today – this presence that ASAD makes on the worldwide web – it is the “ASAD Phenomena“. Nowhere else probably (once again, as far as I am aware) is there any such endeavour that combines the interests and the determination of such a like-minded team with such dedication, to sustain such a significant level of interest in the central theme of this blog. All I can say is – there are music lovers in this world, and then there are ‘music lovers’ in this world.

Looking back at my association, the date was 1st October 2010 when I clicked on the subscribe button for getting the RSS feed and became a regular reader-member of this blog. And guess, what is the first song feed that arrived into my mailbox next day (on 2nd October) – “Ham to tere dil ke bangley mein aanaa maangtaa”. Now that I read this song title, I wonder whether it was a message intended for me from Atul ji, or was it supposed to be from me to Atul ji. 😀 😀  Whichever way, I think it just worked out very famously. 🙂

My first step into lyrics contribution was published on 1st Feb, 2011 and it is the famous Suraiya song from ‘Bilwamangal’ (1954) – “Parwaanon Se Preet Seekh Len”. And then it just went on from there. The first post written by me appeared on 18th Feb, 2011, a song from the film ‘Gul e Bakaavali’ (1963) “Ye Kehdo Tumhe Hamse Kyaa Chaahiye”. Missed the 19th by just a day, although there is a post on the 19th Feb also, my second one. And then it just went on from there.

कुछ लगता नहीं के सात साल गुज़र गए। Seriously, it seems just like last week or last month. In that very year (2011), in the subsequent months, we had a spectacular event on the blog, something of the type that has not yet been repeated. An event that truly marks this blog to be a Phenomena. Starting on 28th June, 2011, the blog saw an unbroken series of articles on the great KL Saigal Sb, that lasted all the way up to 18th Sep, 2011. The last song of this unbroken series, posted on 18th Sep is “Baalam To Pe Sabar Padey” from the film ‘Parwaana’ (1947). I quote a brief paragraph from that write up here,

With this post, I have now published 61 posts on Saigal Saab’s songs. In one of the interim emails, Atul ji wrote to me that every day morning, he eagerly opens his mailbox to look for an email from me. And the eagerness and urgency was no less on my side. Some of the ghazals took anywhere from 3 to 6 hours to complete the write up, with the translations and commentary to my satisfaction. There have been nights when I have sent the write ups to Atul ji at 2 am, 3 am and even past 4 am. There have been occasions that (after having fallen asleep on my laptop) I got to complete the write up later in the morning; you can identify these days by noting the delay in posting the Saigal Saab song for the day.

What a heady time it was. That endeavour was really worth it. We enjoyed it immensely, and it came to a monumental conclusion of documenting and posting each and every one of the available Hindi / Urdu recordings made by the great singer. And truly, nothing comparable to that has again been attempted on the blog so far.

One more reason that I quote this above paragraph from the earlier write up. Something of this relates to the song in this post. I will return to it again, shortly. But yes, I am talking about the relentless tempo with which this blog continues to progress. The support and participative contributions from the entire team are without doubt the bulwark that provides the strength to the arms and shoulders of what this blog is. But then the definitive power of this entire effort is the unflagging dedication and persistence of the leadership from Atul ji, which is truly the backbone of this effort.  It is an accomplishment sans pareil anywhere in the annals of the history of blogging on the internet related to Hindi Film Music.

So, beyond September of 2011, although now done with all the available songs of Saigal Saab, the journey and the saga still continued. Century milestones came with their regularity, then the 5,000th song – “Hamen To Loot Liyaa Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” (dated 13th Nov, 2011), more centuries of artists and other interesting statistical achievements. Then on to the 10,000th song – “Phul Rahin Belariyaan Dolen” (dated 20th July,2014), an extraordinary song published first time anywhere on the net, a song of 1931 vintage posted; and the unprecedented organized effort wherein all regular members of the group contributed a post that contains an introduction of another member. And a memorable long afternoon spent by almost the entire group connected on email, as we all waited for the post to appear on the blog.

On and on, tirelessly, doggedly – getting to honky-tonk posts at the nos. 11111, 12345, 12357 . . .

Then we came to the post no. 13182 – “Aag Lagi Shola Uttha Shamma Pe Parwaana Gira”, on 22nd April last year. It was the mostest of the most momentous celebrations, the 10,000th post by dear Atul ji. It was a surprise for Atul ji; he was under the impression that his 10,000th milestone was already past. But that was not the case. The entire group got together and gave him a standing ovation that verily resounded across the internet.

The next big whopper for our blog came on 14th Jan earlier this year, and its celebration was covered in post no. 13921 “Bhalaai Duniya Ki Jo Subh O Shaam Karte Hain” – the visitor ticker on the blog had turned from nine million, nine hundred ninety nine thousand, nine hundred ninety nine to ten million, sometimes in the late evening of 14th Jan (IST). In desi parlance, we would say  निन्यावे लाख, निन्यावे हज़ार, नौ सौ निन्यावे से हम एक करोड़ पर पहुंचे। Once again, this was a major, major occasion for the blog, and the echoes reverberated once again around the globe – literally. 🙂

And now, greetings (balated) for the date of completing 10 years since this blog’s creation by Atul ji. The date is 19th July (and I am late, of course, as usual – I have a reputation to protect and uphold, you know 😀 ). As per the Wikipedia articles, celebrations calendars and other related details available online, the tenth anniversary is represented by tin or aluminum. The color of this anniversary is blue and / or silver. And the gift of this 10th celebration is diamonds. Whooo. . .

Note that 10 is another interesting number on our blog recently – 10,000th post on blog, 10,000th post by Atul ji, 10 millionth visitor on the blog, and now the 10th anniversary of the blog itself; the last three events listed happening within the period of past 16 months. You simply just cannot cease to keep celebrating on this blog. And the wonder of wonders is that we also continue to trace and share absolutely wonderful celebration songs to go along with the event. The patterns that we conjured up for the post nos. 11111, 12345 and 12357 are quite an interesting phenomena in as of themselves, with the ”hand of providence” playing its fair share in making them happen. 🙂 For those who may not be familiar with these stories, I suggest they should view these posts – they are really very interesting tales of happenstance and coincidence. 🙂  Just click on the post numbers in the sentence above.

So, connecting back to where we started off. Finally last night (IST), the much awaited call from Ben Kayti and Jagdish Bhai materialized. It was a great relief to hear their voices, and to be assured that all is well. The planned vacation had gone on very well, and quite “frigidly”, given that the vacation spot chosen was the Glacier National Park in Montana (USA). After returning from there earlier this week, they also had some guests visiting and so Khyati Ben was completely busy with family affairs. She has once again promised that she will write a post this coming week now. I decided not to wait any further and put up the 20th post in this series today. If and when her post comes along, it will be now at an auspicious ‘पायदान’ of 21. 🙂

Amongst others in the list of my ‘reasons’ (excuses) is of course that I was also in travel during some of this intervening period. In fact most of the early posts in the 10th anniversary series were actually posted while I was on the move. Getting back home, I almost immediately got busy with celebrations for Guru Purnima at my Guru ji’s place. There, the celebrations last for 5 / 6 days, starting from the Guru Purnima day and continuing till the ‘पंचमी’ in the month of ‘सावन’. So that occupied me for almost a whole week within which I was not able to accomplish much as far as the blog activities are concerned.

Another thing was the song selection. Till almost the last hours of posting my previous article – “Dil Chaahta Hai” – I had no idea what would be the songs I am going to write about. The first song I finally zeroed in was this one. Going by a set of very good celebration songs posted by other friends in the group, I was thinking – most of these songs are of recent origin. How about searching for a similar celebration cum group dance song from the earlier decades? After sifting through many possibilities, I picked up this song from the film ‘Tarang’ of 1952. First of, this song has four singers – Rafi Sb, Geeta Dutt, Shamshad Begum and Chitragupt himself. Secondly, the song (no video available) gives a feeling of a gypsy camp by the banks of a river, where a group dance cum song is being performed.

So actually, this song was originally planned to be the earlier post. But then, in random process, I bumped into the “Dil Chaahta Hai” song, and with some contemplative considerations, my planned post got converted into two posts. And good that it did. If I would have combined both these posts with one song – well. . . 🙂

So here is a fabulous celebration song which promises that the proceedings are going to last all night, and that all are invited. And the best part, this song starts with mentioning the word ‘सावन’.

So let me now take just a couple of more minutes to link in ‘सावन’ (saawan) with this celebration. You are going to love this. After having posted all the posts received from the group, and with Atul ji’s post also in place, I started to get individual messages from members of this group, asking me about the delay as to why my post was not coming in. And me, I was without an answer; what to tell – that I have not yet identified the song even? Well, as part of this set of messages, I get this fond message from Atul ji himself on 26th or maybe 27th July, wherein he prodded me to publish my post on the 28th. Reason, he explained, was that 28th July this year is the start of the month of ‘सावन’. And back, in 2008, when this blog got initiated, the date 19th July was also the start of of the month of ‘सावन’. I was really wonderstruck. I had never made this wonderful connect before. Wow, this blog is born in the month of ‘सावन’ – ‘सावन – मन भावन’, and not just the month, on the first of the month. Now this is really auspicious. I can go on now connecting many more things, along with this connect. . .  but maybe not. Goodness, there are hundreds of songs in Hindi films that have the word ‘सावन’ in the mukhda. So I will move on by saying that this blog is blessed – for it is born in this auspicious month, showering sprinkles of delightful music in drizzles of melodious songs, one after the other. Oh sure, yes, this blog is a ‘सावन’ born. 🙂 Without any doubts. I am glad Atul ji highlighted this point to me, and that now we know what songs to post in the future, when the blog’s birthday comes along. 🙂

Coming back to this film and this song. I got the set of songs of this film from my collector friend. This film has some very wondrous songs, ten in all, eight of which are penned by IC Kapoor, and one each by DN Madhok and Ram Murti. This song is written by Ram Murti. The music composition is by Chitragupt, who has also lent his voice to two of the songs in this film, including this one. The blog already carries 5 songs from this film, and I promise you, the best of the songs are still to come. Just like this song today. It is such a joie de vivre expression of gaiety and celebration. The tempo is so sweet and so infective, that you will be swaying with the beat. When I heard this song for the first time, well, quite a while back now, I was simply bowled over by it. And even now, having heard it so often, whenever I play it again, I simply am not able to get over it.

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

Just listen to this song, and I assure you that at the end of the play, you will feel so un-satiated that you will be playing it again and again.

In some ways, this song also expresses my connect with the blog. Earlier in this article, I had mentioned a quote from the earlier posted last article in the KL Saigal series. So that is the connect here. Practically all my work for this blog happens in the dead of the night and in the wee hours of the morning. This is also mentioned in the quoted paragraph above. Even beyond the Saigal Sb series, my mode of working on the tasks related to this blog has not changed. All the posts that you see getting on to the blog at 7 am and 9 am – all these posts have been worked on and completed the previous night at times like 2 am and 3 am. 🙂

A very happy 10th birthday to ASAD; a ton of congratulations to Atul ji, and all the dear friends and co-passengers on this musical bandwagon. The saga continues. . .

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

“Sanskaar”(1952) was produced and directed by V M Vyas. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Purnima, Veera, Pran, Razi, Shashi Kapoor (Sr), Ihswar Lal, Mirza Musharraf, Murad, Kalyani, Pappu, Baby Naaz, Indira Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

When I looked at the three balance songs of the movie, I discovered that these songs were great and special songs in their respective genre. Nevertheless, if I keep holding songs back for special occasions then I may not find myself with too many songs to discuss on a “normal” day. 🙂 So I decided that one out of these three songs should be discussed today.

Here is the fifth song from “Sanskaar”(1952) to appear in the blog. This song is an inspiration song which is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Jeenewaale o matwaale zindagi se pyaar kar (Sanskaar)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
yoon na baith zindagi mein zindagi se haar kar,
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

moorakh na dar dekh andhera
moorakh na dar dekh andhera
hoga kabhi to savera
hoga kabhi to savera aa
ranj-o-gham se zindagi ke roop ka singaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
zinda hai to zindagi pe jaan bhi nisaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

dil hamne tumhen de diya pehli hi nazar mein
pehli hi nazar chubh gayi mere bhi jigar mein
?? ho jo aankhon se to phirte ho nazar mein
phirte ho nazar mein

ab dekho sajan aur kahin dil na lagaana
do pyaar bhare dil hain miley

ae jee haan zulm na dhaana

ae chaand kahin dekh nazar tu na lagaana

paigaam ye kya dete hain ae ae
hans hans ke sitaare

paigaam ye kya dete hain aen
hans hans ke sitaare
ae ji hans hans ke sitaare

angdaayi umangon ne hai li
ham hain tumhaare
jab tum ho hamaare to hain ham bhi tumhaare ae
hain ham bhi tumhaare

waade ko mohabbat ke kahin bhool na jaana
do pyaar bhare dil hain miley
zulm na dhhaana
ae ji haan zulm na dhhaana

ae chaand kahin dekh nazar tu na lagaana

mandlaati hain kyun titliyaan
ye kaliyon ke upar

kyun jaan diye deti hai bulbul bhala gul par
parwaana jala jaata hai kyun shamma ki lau par
kyun shamma ki lau par

kuchh aapka kissa hai

kuchh mera fasaana
do pyaar bhare dil hain miley
zulm na dhhaana
ae jee haan zulm na dhhaana
ae chaand kahin dekh
nazar tu na lagaana
do pyaar bhare dil hain mile
zulm na dhhaana
ae jee haan
zulm na dhhaana

Today is the birth anniversary of playback singer Madhubala Jhaveri. She was born this day in 1935.

Madhubala was born into a musically inclined family of renowned artists. Her mother, Smt Hirabai Jhaveri and her aunt Smt Sharmila Margaonkar, were both well known singers, and often performed on All India Radio. Although brought up in an atmosphere of music, she was initially not inclined to pursue it as a career. In fact after her matriculation, she joined the JJ School of Arts, deciding for herself that the devotion and time required for classical music training was not what she wanted. But the fate had planned otherwise. In a chance encounter, music director Hansraj Behl heard her sing in a private gathering, and was immediately attracted to her voice. He was searching for a new voice to sing for him in his upcoming film ‘Apni Izzat’ (1952). He invited her to sing for this film.

Her debut was very impressive, and the industry immediately took notice of her. It is said that at that time, the refrain that was expressed in the media was, that “. . .another Lata has been born”. She had an active singing career during the decade of 1950s, and worked with many mainstream music directors of that era. Her voice was termed as sweet and pleasing, and her diction and articulation was wonderful. However, her voice could not sustain the higher octaves, somewhat limiting her range. Her voice was considered a perfect foil for Talat Mehmood, and she has rendered many memorable duets with him.

Her career faded away in the early 1960s. After a couple of renditions in 1961, we then hear her voice  for one last time in the 1968 film ‘London Express’ (no records available in public domain so far). After being in oblivion for almost four and a half decades, she passed away on Sep 11th in 2013.

The song I have selected for today’s remembrance is a solo from the 1952 film ‘Raajrani Damyanti’. The music is by Avinash Vyas and the words are written by Neelkanth Tiwari.

The film is a mythological offering from the banner of Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. It is produced by Mahipatrai Shah and Anoop Chand Shah, and is directed by Raje Nene. The main cast of actors includes Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Usha Kiran, Vikas, Baby Tabassum, Ratan Kumar, Prakash, Basant Kanse, Shakeela, Shakuntala, Uma Devi, Yashwant Dave, and Ram Singh amongst others.

This song is a lovely expression of a heart in love, inviting the moon and the stars to come and light up the life. The words by Neelkanth Tiwari evoke a very romantic ambience. It is a wonderful pleasure to listen to this song.

There is one word in the second antaraa that I am not able to decipher. I request other readers and friends with keener ears to please help identify the missing word.

Song – Chamak Rahe Taarey  (Raajrani Damyanti) (1952) Singer – Madhubala Jhaveri, Lyrics – Neelkanth Tiwari, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya

poonam ke chaand
poonam ke chaand muskuraate chalo
meri raaton ko chaandni banaate chalo
poonam ke chaand muskuraate chalo
meri raaton ko chaandni banaate chalo
preet meri aankhon mein aa ke pukaare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao
meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao
chali chal
chali chal tu lehron pe
dhar dhar ke paaon
chali chal tu lehron pe
dhar dhar ke paaon
lehren bhi gaati hain gal bainyaan daale
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
phool hon hamaare
aur charan tumhaare
phool hon hamaare
aur charan tumhaare
bol rahe sarita ke donon kinaare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
