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…
