A beautiful Mohammed Rafi ghazal. I heard while driving to office today morning. Put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. The voice is beautiful, the music is beautiful, the lyrics are beautiful. So different from the “songs” that are given to us by the “music” industry these days.
The music is by Madan Mohan and the poet is Majrooh.
Tujhe kya sunaon main dilruba, tere saamnein mera haal hai,
Teri ik nigah ki baat hai, meri zindadi ka sawaal hai.
Meri har khushi tere dam se hai, meri zindagi tere gham se hai,
Tere dard se rahe bekhabar, mere dil ki kab yeh majaal hai?
Tere husn par hai meri nazar, mujhe subah-o-shaam ki kya khabar,
Meri shaam hai teri justajoo, meri subah tera khayaal hai.
Mere dil jigar mein samaa bhi ja, rahe kyon nazar ka bhi faasila,
Ke tere begair O jaan-e-jaan, mujhe zindagi bhi muhaal hai.
Mujhe garaz kisi se na waasta, mujhe kaam apne hi kaam se,
Tere zikr se, teri fiqr se, teri yaad se, tere naam se.
( I have no concern with anyone, I mind my own business.
And my business is: talking about you, thinking about you, remembering you, speaking you name)
