Sahir Ludhinanvi, the rebel shayar, the poor man's poet is at his
best in this Nazm. TAAJ TERE LIYE IK MAZHHAR-E-ULFAT HI SAHI (may
it is the epitome of love for you), TUJHKO IS VAADIYE RANGEEN SE
AQEEDAT HI SAHI (and maybe, you have absolute dedicated devotion
to the ambience around it), yet - MERI MEHBOOB KAHIN AUR MILA KAR
MUJHKO. ANGINAT LOGON NE DUNIYA MEIN MUHOBBAT KI HAI
(innumerable people have fallen in love) KAUN KEHTA HAI KI SAADIQ
NA THHE JAZBE UNKE (who says their love was not pure and
eternal), LEKIN UNKE LIYE TASH-HEER KA SAMAAN NA THAA (but they
did not have the means to publicize their love - a satire on
Shahjahan), KYONKI WO LOG BHI APNI HI TARAH MUFFLIS THHE (because
they too were paupers like you and me) - MERI MEHBOOB KAHIN AUR
MILAKAR MUJHSE (hence, my love, let us meet at any other place
and not at the Taj Mahal). I know you also have understood the
poet's mind and the same was evident in your singing too.

I can go on to analyse the second antara too, but then you would
be knowing the full meaning. A very good attempt of a song that
remains one of the best in Urdu poetry in Hindi films. Alas, the
song is not that popular compared to RANG AUR NOOR KI BARAAT KISE
PESH KARUN from the same film.

Wah !! Murty. Maza aagaya. I can understand how you feel, because
I felt the same, when I heard this ghazal and wanted to sing it.

DS

This is a Nazm and not a Ghazal, DS. Much of good poetry in
Hindi and Urdu is devoted in praise of the Taj Mahal, but this is
the only one which despizes it. Sahir had nothing against
Shahjahan or Mumtaz or their much publized 'love'. He being a
leftist, was against the rich and their ways of life. Recently, I
have posted a review on Sahir Ludhianvi myself in our egroup and
I could gather a lot of info on this great poet and lyricist.
This song has been dear to me for close to four decades and I
rate it as one of the topmost of Rafi Sahab's renditions. He
enters the soul of the poet.
Posted by RAFIMURTY on 10/15/2010.
Thanks Murty. I can see how much you love this nazm.

DS

Subramaniam, you have gladdened my heart. This is one song penned
by Sahir that has been the subject of discussion by me for
several decades now. I often ask stage performers (singers) to
take up this kind of songs, but it does not happen. One of these
days, I will give you the detailed discussions we have had on
this lovely poetry by Sahir, the excellent presentation by Rafi
Sahab. Madan Mohan's music too was exceptional. But by choosing
this song, and also singing so well, you have done a big service
to some of the unpopular songs of Rafi Sahab. Your "Aqeedat"
(devotional leanings) for music is marvelous.
Posted by RAFIMURTY on 10/13/2010.
Ah!! Murty, what a surprise!! Hearing from you after a very very
long time. At least this ghazal brought you back to Midomi. I am
glad that you found time to listen and for your encouraging
comments. Regards and God bless,
DS

Very very well sung DS. Reviving very very old memories. Simply
great Stars.
Posted by vatiyer on 10/11/2010.
Thank you very much Vatsala for finding time to listen and for
your very encouraging comments. I wanted all my Midomi friends to
hear this number, not because I have sung it, but because it is
such a beautiful number of Rafi Sahab, which many may not have
heard before, and at least by listening to this now they will
surely be tempted to listen to he original Rafi version. Regards
and God bless,
DS
Posted by D.S.Maniam on 10/11/2010.
Kya baat hai, DS. I have not heard this song. I made it a point
to hear something which I have not heard. When you hear a song
which you have been hearing for a long time, you have a
pre-conceived notion which reflects in your judgement of the
song. In this case, I can say for sure you have done a wonderful
job
Posted by schandar20 on 10/08/2010.
thank you Chandar for listening and liking it. It was a difficult
ghazal to sing, but I was hell bent about learning it and singing
it. Yes, you are right. There are so many fantastic songs of Rafi
Sahab that we have yet to hear. Thanks once again
Regards,
DS
Posted by D.S.Maniam on 10/10/2010.
Chandar, this comes as a surprise that you have not heard this
lovely song from Ghazal. I have on several occasions earlier
posted this song in our group. But anyway, good that you have now
noticed it. Maybe, one day, you will sing this too on midomi.

Sarita, these are some very rare and exceptionally beautiful
gazals of Rafi Sahab. I also came upon it by chance and liked it
very much for the way it has been sung . Thanks for listening and
liking it. Regards and God bless,
DS
Posted by D.S.Maniam on 10/07/2010.
Saritaji, this is from the film Ghazal starring Sunil Dutt and
Meena Kumari which also has the Rang Aur Noor Ki Barat Kise Pesh
Karun, etc. Sahir had written this Nazm much before the film was
made and it found its way in the scene. One of these days I will
forward the original song as also some rave reviews on this.
