Khoye Khoye

Its been ages.. I don't have much writing time these days. I have song commitments that I have not fulfilled. Here is a song I wrote more than 2 years ago. Anup composed the tune around the same time. But it got the voice of Sindhuja only few months back. Thanks to Sam and Nandu for the arrangements and mixing. The song 'Khoye Khoye' was finally released to the public domain in Blogswara v5. Fans of slow melodies, let me warn you - its a dance track!

Listen to the track here

********************************************
khoye khoye se hum hai
Na khushi na koi gham hai
Baadalon pe kadam hai,
pal bhar mein aankh nam hai
yeh haalaath magar...(3)
hamen pasand hai

Us raat mein, barsaat mein,
lehraaye jab teri baah mein
jaage na the, na the neend mein
bas milgaye teri saans mein
us yaad ke aanchal tale
aajkal saare kwaab hai
ye dil baDaa betaab hai
ye din hai kyaa, kyaa raat hai

khoye khoye se hum hai
Na khushi na koi gham hai
Baadalon pe kadam hai,
pal bhar mein aankh nam hai
yeh haalaath magar...(3)
hamen pasand hai

Us raat mein, barsaat mein,
lehraaye jab teri baah mein
jaage na the, na the neend mein
bas milgaye teri saans mein
us yaad ke aanchal tale
aajkal saare kwaab hai
ye dil baDaa betaab hai
ye din hai kyaa, kyaa raat hai

tum ho kahaan, aa meherbaan
tere bin kyaa hai yahaan
kyaa hai zameen kyaa aasmaan
kyaa zindagi, kya maut hai

chuu kar hamen zindaa karo
aaghosh mein mar jaane do
dil hosh mein na woh josh mein
hum kho gaye teri khoj mein
ehsaas kii baariikiyaan
chubne lagii nazdeekiyaan
kabhi dard-e-dil, kabhi gudgudee
baDne lagii, ye tishnagii
chuu kar hamen zindaa karo
aaghosh mein mar jaane do
dil hosh mein na woh josh mein
hum kho gaye teri khoj mein

Jaadoogari nigaah ki

Jaadoogari nigaah ki, samjhaake jaayiye
aaye hai hosh mein abhi, abhi na jaayiye...

Pehloo mein aaj aapke, jo berang hogaye
kehte hai gul vo aap se, mehkaake jaayiye

Liptii hai dil se aap ke, jo raazdaar hai
naam us kitaab mein meraa, likhkarke jaayiye

jugnuu khayaal-e-yaar ke, apne chiraag hai
subho kabhii to laayiye, ghar aake jaayiye

hone lage hai hum bhi kuch, mashhoor shehar mein
aise hi roz dekhiye, muskaake jaayiye

naqsh-e-paa

I discovered blogging in 2004. Four years on, I notice that my blog has reached 100 posts. I am by no means a regular blogger, its surprising to me how I got this far :)
So, here is me revisiting some verses from my old posts!

fareb-e-nazar tha, dilaasaa diyaa dam-bakhud dil ko humne
unkii nigaah se nikle, itni jurrat to aansoo mein nahin
*****

*****

ab zaraa sojaayenge is dard ke qaraar mein

*****
Vo aakhri gulaab yaa ke vo ashq ka katraa

Hum tanhaa na chalte to khud se kahaan milte
Chehron ke bheed mein, bhool aate shakal apni...

haan unke lab pe sadaa rukii hai
zubaan pe meraa naam rukaa hai
mai chal rahaa hoon yoon dheere dheere
umeed dil ko ke vo pukaare

Ik khasta dil basta hai yahaan..

Ik khasta dil basta hai yahaan..
rakhtaa hai kareeb woh..
ik mauhoom dostii...ik mehroom sii khushii...
Ik khasta dil basta hai yahaan..

vo kash-e-aashiqui
dilkash vo tishnagii
jangal ki aag thii
badgumaan kar gayii

kehte the humsafar
naadaan the..bekhabar
aainon ka vo saudaagar
dhund mein thii ye nazar

kuch aur thii vajaah,
kuch aur keh diyaa
maana ke hoon buraa,
tujh mein nahiin aib kyaa?

- Kaunquest

Meanings
--------
Khasta = wounded
mauhoom = imaginary
badgumaan = distrustful

Here is something I came across. The most number of responses I have ever seen for a blogpost. A real tribute to a musical legend - O P Nayyar

aainaa hogaa..

Hai wohii jahaan nazar mein

Hai wohii jahaan nazar mein, nazariyaa badlaa sa hai
parakh rahaa hoon tujhe zindagii, tera chehraa badlaa sa hai..

Birthdays, not keen on big celebrations, but maybe an opportunity to reflect and refresh! To define and redefine yourself and your priorities. You find your strenghts. You learn about some of your mistakes/weaknesses and some, you know, are yet to be discovered. You understand about the people and things that matter to you most. You find events and people that leave an impresssion on you, positive or negative. You realize not everything is what they seem to be and not everyone is as true and honest as you believed them to be! The learning continues, you keep inventing YOU!

lyrics

Koii raaz-e-dil bol gayi aankhen
saare ashq mujhe deke gayi aankhen
yoon hii sochtii hoon paas ho vo aankhen
jaane kis jahan ko chod gayi aankhen
mere sannaaton ko, dil ke anDheron ko,
dekhe na haaye wo aankhen
teri aankhen


vo tere saath ke chaar din kyaa
umr se badke vo lamha lamhaa
dil ke paas the dil kii manzilen
aankhon mein sapnon ke saaye...
har lamhaa

(koii raaz-e-dil..)

bekhayaali mein yoon saans loongii
zindagii kii sazaaa kaat loongii
merii hasraten, terii aahaten
yaadon mein dhal gaye saare...
tere saaye

Koii raaz-e-dil bol gayi aankhen
saare ashq mujhe deke gayi aankhen
yoon hii sochtii hoon paas ho vo aankhen
jaane kis jahan ko chod gayi aankhen
mere sannaaton ko, dil ke anDheron ko,
dekhe na haaye wo aankhen
teri aankhen
