Today's Song: Zindagi mein to sabhi pyar kiya karte hain

Zindagi mein to sabhi pyar kiya karte hain from Pakistani movie “Azmat” (1973) sung by Mehdi Hasan (lyrics by Qateel Shifai)

Since we are on the Great Mehdi Hasan, I wanted to bring a song that I really love! Now, there is a history behind it – I was doing my Masters in Gujarat and I had a couple of friends from Punjab. They had gotten besotted to this song in their cassette. Now, I was the only one with cassette player in the group so they would come to my room every night. They would smoke pot and drink all night until 3 am in the morning.. night after night! And here I was – a teetotaller and a non-smoker – who would be in there with them.. listening to world philosophy through “high” minds! They would play this song repeatedly from 10 pm to 3 am every night!! Now there is one stanza that has always been my favorite – specifically the line that is in bold.. just one word makes that entire line come up with life – “bhi”! Also watch it on youtube.

अपने जज्बात में नाग्मात रचाने के लिए
मैंने धड़कन कि तरह दिल में बसाया है तुझे |
मैं तसव्वुर भी जुदाई का भला कैसे करूं;
मैंने किस्मत कि लकीरों से चुराया है तुझे |

Enjoy the song below if you are reading this after Jan 29, 2007; otherwise play it on the left hand sidebar…

  1. there is another stanza of this song which goes like this

    teri har chap pe jalte hain khyalon mein chirag’
    jab bhi tu aye jagata hua jadu aye
    tujhko chu loon to jaane tammana mujhko,der tak apne badan se teri khushbu aye
    tu baharon ka hai unvan tujhe chahunga

    main to markar bhi meri jaan tujhe chahoonga

    तू मिला है तो ये एहसास हुआ है मुझको
    ये मेरी उम्र मोहब्बत के लिए थोड़ी है
    एक ज़रा सा ग़म-इ-दौरान का भी हक है जिस पर

    तुझ पे हो जाऊँगा कुर्बान तुझे चाहूँगा
    मैं तो मरकर भी मेरी जान तुझे चाहूँगा

    tu mila hai to ye ehsaas huaa hai mujhko
    ye meri umr mohabbat ke liye thhodi hai
    ek zara sa ghum-e-dauraan ka bhi haq hai jis par

    tujh pe ho jaaoonga qurban tujhe chahoonga
    main to markar bhi meri jaan tujhe chaahoonga
