Tu Hi Toh Meri Dost Hai - Yuvraj

Another beautiful song which has touching music and refreshes memorable moments of life is a song from the movie ‘Yuvraj’. Initially, I thought that this was the title song of Dostana but then after watching the trailers I came to know that it was from Yuvraj…

I read the lyrics below then the thought of Urdu being a soft and delicate language full of vast expression words. The lyrics have been very well-written with such good an imagination full of expressions of love.. specially the lines “Kabhi Kehta Hai Saahil, Jahan Shaam Utarti Hain, Kehte Hain Samunder Se, Ek Pari Guzarti Hain, Woh Raat Ki Rani Hain, Sargam Par Chalti Hain” – how beautifully written..


Please read the lyrics below and Download Online:

Aaja Main Hawaon Pe Bithake Le Chalun
Tu Hi Toh, Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain
Aaja Main Khalaon Mein Uthake Le Chalun
Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain
Awaaz Ka Dariya Hoon, Behta Hoon Main Nili Raaton Mein
Main Jaagta Rehta Hoon, Neend Bhari Jheel Si Aankhon Mein
Awaaz Hoon Main
Aaja Main Hawaon Pe Bithake Le Chaloon
Tu Hi Toh, Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain
Aaja Main Khalaon Mein Uthake Le Chaloon
Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain `

Raat Mein Chandni Kabhi, Aisi Gungunati Hain
Sunn Zara Lagta Hain Tumse, Awaaz Milati Hain
Main Khayalon Ki Mehek Hoon, Gungunate Hain Saaz Par
Ho Sake Toh Milale, Awaaz Ko Le Saaz Par
Aaja Main Hawaon Pe Bithake Le Chalun
Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain
Aaja Main Khalaon Mein Uthake Le Chaloon
Tu Hi Toh Meri Doost Hain
Awaaz Ka Dariya Hoon, Behta Hoon Main Nili Raaton Mein
Main Jaagta Rehta Hoon, Neend Bhari Jheel Si Aankhon Mein
Awaaz Hoon Main

O Kabhi Kehta Hai Saahil, Jahan Shaam Utarti Hain
Kehte Hain Samunder Se, Ek Pari Guzarti Hain
Woh Raat Ki Rani Hain, Sargam Par Chalti Hain
Re Sa Re Sa Re Sa, Sa Re Sa Re Sa Re
Aaja Main Hawaon Pe Bithake Le Chaloon
Tu Hi Toh, Tu Hi Toh Mera Doost Hain
Aaja Main Khalaon Mein Uthake Le Chaloon
Tu Hi Toh Mera Doost Hain
Awaaz Ka Dariya Hoon, Behti Hoon Mein Nilli Raaton Mein
Main Jagti Rehti Hoon, Neend Bhari Jheel Si Aankhon Mein
Awaaz Hoon Main
Awaaz Hoon Main

Love - Questionable!



I just noticed history repeat
No, I think I noticed the nature unchanged
I also saw love make it no different
I just realized it all went down the drain.
But this showed me the beauty of her pearls
Not the ones which trickled down her cheeks
The ones which fell uncounted down the bed
She found her being proposed by a young lad
Not that he was the only one who fell to her fancies
But the only one who didn’t fall to her fancies
The unusual coincidence appealed her a lot
The simplicity also promised a lot
But continuing to live a life of misconception
Isn’t what she conceptualized at the start of their relation
The post bonding year passed like hell
But the next one bloomed and rung like bell
The misconception was finally assumed as true
Things didn’t change and again truth gave evidence
It was tough to face-
The choice made between love and freedom
She doesn’t regret the choice ever
But wonders if there could have been anything better
It’s tough to keep all things in heart
With no one to discuss and not knowing where to start
Such depth cannot be unfolded
Let life unfold it
The pain is as it was always
And heart advises her
To have married the one who loved her
And questions her
Of not marrying the one who loved her.

Aaoge Jab Tum O Saajana - Jab We Met

I never knew I missed sharing the happiness and pleasure as I listened to this amazing song ‘Aaoge Jab Tum O Saajana’. Amazingly well sung song of the movie ‘ Jab We Met ’, sung by the very talented Ustad Rashid Khan. The voice modulation and classical base forms the key as it touches souls so deeply. I can’t find words to express the beauty of this song especially since it is so romantic. Please Download Online and read the lyrics below:

Aaoge Jab Tum Saajna
Aaoge Jab Tum Saajna
Angana phool khilege
Barsega saawan, barsega saawan
Jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge
Aaoge Jab Tum Saajna
Angana phool khilege

Naina tere kajrare
Naino pe hum dil hare hai
Anjane hi tere naino ne
Waade kiye kaie saare hai
Saanso he leher madam chale
To tu kahe barsega saawan
Barsega saawan jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge
Aaoge Jab Tum Saajna
Angana phool khilege

Ka ba ba sa sa re ga ga
Chanda ko uta lakho mein
Yeh zindagi tere haton mein
Palko pe jil mil tare hai
Aana bahri barsato mein
Sapno ka jahan
Hoga khila khila
Barsega saawan, barsega saawan
Jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge
pa ni sa re ma ma ga ga ga
ga re re re ga re da ni re re ma da ni da da
da ni da pa ma ma ma da da ma re pa ga
ga ma da ni sa sa re pa ma ma ga ga ga re ga sa
Angana phool khile
pa ni da ni da sa re ma ma ma ma ga
Angana phool khile
ma ma pa ni da re ma pa re re sa da
re pa pa ma ma ga ga

Memorable Moment: A Loving Instance

Memorable Moment: A Loving Instance
While I was talking my heart out to a close friend yesterday, I remembered many fond memories of the past. One is so sweet that I really like sharing. One day I visited my cousin and we were taking a walk in the lane. We saw one of her neighbor’s kid crying and his mother was scolding him like anything. My cousin told me that this was a regular feature but I – emotional as always – grew worried. I went over to speak to him, asked him name and gently put my hand over his face. He seemed such a lovely face or so it seemed to me – innocent and crazy :). He kept crying when I first talked to him but then stopped a little and started listening to what I was saying. I tried to be as gentle with him and asked him to shrug his (silly) demands from his mother and tried to draw his attention to other things. I think I chatted with him a little while my cousin kept exchanging words with his mother and then we moved on. I am not sure when did I meet him again. This was long time back say more than 10 years back.

Time passed, I grew up, started working, got married and it was time when my cousin – two years younger to me was about to get married. I went to attend her wedding and then my cousin’s younger sister called me saying someone wanted to meet me like anything. As I walked with her I kept wondering who could it be but could make no guesses. Then I saw him, he had grown up and was in X or XI by then looking mature than what he was when we met. He had not changed and seemed naughty as ever. As he looked at me, he smiled gently. I recognized him instantly and asked him how he was doing and gave him a warm hug. His mother was also present and she told me that he wanted to meet me so much. I was glad that he remembered me so much after such a long gap of 10 years.

His Mom told me that he kept questioning everyone if I had married? When he got a chance to speak, his first statement was “आपने तो कहा था कि मुझसे शादी करोगी, आपने तो शादी कर ली?!”. I was left speechless and then suddenly burst out into laughter. He said it so cutely and blushed a little and then started laughing too. I then remembered faintly that once he constantly asked me if I would marry him and I had jovially said a yes. He was just 8 or 9 years old then as much as I remember and I had cleared school and definitely thought of myself as being a lot elder to him and took it all as fun!! I blushed lightly as he said and laughed aloud alongwith all elders standing with us in the group :):):). I was amazed at the footprint I must have left over his thoughts in that young an age and felt really happy about someone valuing me a lot.

He insisted on meeting my husband and I called him to meet this crazy child. I felt lovingly funny to introduce him to my husband and I said teasingly ‘Meet my ex-boyfriend of childhood, I left such a loving and caring person to marry you’. Even he burst out in laughter and all joining us in the conversation also laughed aloud.
So touching kiddish act from a child.. His mothers used to say that he only listened to me, did what I mentioned even once and inquire about me often.

Love can happen anywhere, for anyone, any number of times and in varied meanings in life. Love is the most sacred feeling on earth. I am so touched with this memorable moment.

Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna - Lovely Song


Some songs are so beautiful that they touch your hearts with the first beat and in the first go. This song rung a bell instantly. I was dying to hear it again but since I heard it on FM I had to wait to download from the internet. It is some typical form of poetry which the ‘less knowledgeable – me’ would not be able to classify but it has been beautiful written. The choice of words is so selected and in such rhythm that you can fall in love with the mere lyrics. It has been sung equally well in a fine voice yet filled with simplicity of singing by Swanand Kirkire and the music is by Shantanu. How beautiful..Download Online and read the lyrics below..

To me this song is from a person who is so much in love like the crazy ones. The song indicates his love for his dear one with loving yet crazy thoughts which might be unrealistic but he wants them so much to come true. The delicate words which have been put to use like Mann, Baatein, Saansen, ‘sayaani bheed..’, and many more have been so lyrically woven into each other that they have given this song an indirect yet deep meaning. This song again proves the point that most of the traditional way of singing still holds its invaluable place and correctly people say – The Golden Numbers / The Golden Era of Singing / and likes.

Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
Bavre Se Mann, Ki Dekho Bavri Hain Baatein
Bavre Se Mann, Ki Dekho Bavri Hain Baatein
Bavri Se Dhadkaane Hain, Bavri Hain Saansen
Bavri Si Karwaton Se, Nindiya Door Bhaage
Bavre Se Nain Chaahe, Bavre Jharokhon Se, Bavre Nazaron Ko Takna
Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
Bavre Se Is Jahan Main Bavra Ek Saath Ho
Is Sayani Bheed Main Bas Haathon Mein Tera Haath Ho
Bavri Si Dhun Ho Koi, Bavra Ek Raag Ho
Bavri Si Dhun Ho Koi, Bavra Ek Raag Ho
Bavre Se Pair Chahen, Baavron Tarano Ke, Bavre Se Bol Pe Thirakna.
Bavra Mann, Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
Bavra Sa Ho Andhera, Banvri Khamoshiyan
Bavra Sa Ho Andhera, Bavri Khamoshiyan
Thartharati Low Ho Maddham, Banvri Madhoshiyan
Bavra Ek Ghooghta Chahe, Haule Haule Bin Bataye, Bavre Se Mukhde Se Sarakana,
Bavra Mann, Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
