AMAZING POETIC EXPRESSION TO DEFINE LOVE



This is surely one of the closest and most apt hindi musical attempt to define love, an utmost and par excellence creativity of a lyricist. This came in the year 1969 in a movie called “Khamoshi”, starring Rajesh Khanna and Waheeda Rehman in the lead. I am an honest believer that more than 50% of the hindi music is and had always been inspired from the west. But some of our poets are truly gifted and have emerged up with some great creative expressions right from the past. One of them and my all time favorite is Gulzar sahab. This post of mine is a dedication to his one of my personal favorite work. This is a golden oldie song, which i don't expect many of my readers to have come across prior to the read. So for all the die hard romantic music lovers, here is a track worth listening. Two geniuses working alongside Gulzar sahab here are legandary playback queen Lata Mangeshkar and extremely talented composer Hemant kumar.


The lyrics of the song, which inspired and incited me to write this post goes like this...


हमने देखि हैं उन आंखों की महकती खुशबू
हाथ से छु के इससे रिश्तों का इल्जाम न दो
सिर्फ़ एहसास हैं यह, रूह से महसूस करो
प्यार को प्यार ही रहने दो, कोई नाम न दो
हमने देखि हैं उन आंखों की महकती खुशबू
हाथ से छु के इससे रिश्तों का इल्जाम न दो
हमने देखि हैं…

प्यार कोई बोल नहीं, प्यार आवाज़ नहीं
एक खामोशी हैं, सुनती हैं कहा करती हैं
न यह बुझती हैं, न रूकती हैं, न ठहरी हैं कहीं
नूर की बूँद हैं सदियों से बहा करती हैं
सिर्फ़ एहसास हैं यह, रूह से महसूस करो
प्यार को प्यार ही रहने दो, कोई नाम न दो
हमने देखि हैं…

मुस्कराहट से खिली रहती हिया आंखों में कहीं
और पलकों पे उजाले से रुके रहते हैं
होंठ कुछ कहते नहीं, कांपते होंठों पे मगेर
कितने खामोश से अफसाने रुके रहते हैं
सिर्फ़ एहसास हैं यह, रूह से महसूस करो
प्यार को प्यार ही रहने दो, कोई नाम न दो

हमने देखि हैं उन आंखों की महकती खुशबू
हाथ से छु के इससे रिश्तों का इल्जाम न दो
हमने देखि हैं…


If you are a true good music and meaningful lyrics combination fan like me, then this one is for you.

This one is an old classic with extreme depth in it, something very rare.

This one is worth hearing and understanding, not just listening. An amazing poetic expression of a great poet.
