Dunya Jissay Kehtay Hain …

Posted on: August 18, 2009

one of my all time favorites by Jagjit & Chitra Singh… The Lyrics are so beautiful & I can’t resist to post ’em all in bold & the last sher in italic too. I suddenly liked it the moment I listened to it for the first time, some four years ago. I have been googling for the poet now to share the credit with but no luck as yet. He equally deserves the thing and may be more according to some.

duniya jissay kehtay hain, jadoo ka khilona hay
mil jaaye tau mitti hay, kho jaaye tau sona hay

acha sa koi mausam, tanha sa koi a’lam
har waqt ka rona tau, beka’r ka rona hay

barsaat ka badal tau, dewaana hay, kia jaanay?
kis ra’h se bachna hay, kis chatt ko bhigona hay

ghum ho k khushi donu’n, kuch dair k sa’thi hain
phir rassta hi rassta hay, hansna hay na rona hay

While googling for the poet, I also came across this reference to this Ghazal. I agree with him, “How meaningful the last lines are!! If we can just keep this thing in mind all the time, we would be much more content with our life.”

/nayni is listening to this beautiful ghazal

Thanx 4 sharing BMK šŸ™‚

Thats a beautiful ghazal! Thanks for sharing it! šŸ™‚

The second last couplet reminded me of the verse;

zamee’n say kaun utatha hay sookhay patto’n ko
hawa ki baat na karna hawa tau pagal hay

/Nayni, that time is usually listening to aey diL-e-nada’n… & the likes, for me…

Aadil, the sher is pretty cool..

on a lighter note, kuch logon ki duty bhi hoti hay, becharay… :blush:

very well said….

perform your deeds well, end of the day one has to leave no matter what… šŸ™‚

That’s a very beautiful Gazal with quite some deep meanings šŸ™‚ God bless.

Yes Mishall. Its classic. I am still looking for the poet.
