Zindagi zindagi,

Aankh ki kor mein,
Kyu nami reh gayi..

Zindagi zindagi,
Kya kami reh gayi,
Aankh ki kor mein,

Tu kahan kho gayi,

Koi aaya nahi,
Dopahar ho gayi,
Koi aaya nahi,
Zindagi zindagi..

Din aaye din jaaye,
Sadiyaan bhi gin aaye,
Sadiyaan re..
Tanhayi lipti hai,
Lipti hai saasaon ki,
Rasiya re..

Tere bina badi pyaasi hai,
Tere bina hai pyaasi re,
Naino ki do sakhiyan re,
Tanha re, mein tanha re..

Zindagi zindagi,
Kya kami reh gayi,

Subah ka kohra hai,
Shaam ki dhool hai,
Tanhai hai,
Raat bhi zard hai,
Dard hi dard hai,
Ruswai hai,
Kaise kate saansein uljhi hai,
Raaten badi jhulsi jhulsi hai,
Naina kori sadiyaan re,
Tanha re, mein tanha re..

Just a thought:
Have you ever noticed, how at times, when nothing works, it's despair that gives you that much craved hope...

gulzar never ceases to amaze you with the beauty and depth of his thoughts... i have felt the same so many times, but have never been able to place a finger on it...

rain girl said...

"Tanhayi lipti hai,
Lipti hai saasaon ki"

beautiful lyrics....

and thoughtful thought, too. yes, we hope because without hope, there's no life. with despair comes hope, with darkness, light. because even the presence of shadows tells us that a light is near somewhere.

@marvin- yeah Gulzar magic...i somehow feel the music could ve been better. "but have never been able to place a finger on it"...probably it's meant to be that way...i dunno either


@rain-"because even the presence of shadows tells us that a light is near somewhere"... gosh!:)
