Have you had that moment in life, when, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t hit the precise words to describe what you’re feeling? A hundred emotions, similar and contrasting, springing within you at the same time all, and you powerless to find the precise the right words? Powerless to share the power with which the song’s moved you, affected you?

If you have, great! I don’t have to describe what effect this song has.

By the way, pay attention to the last verse, sung by Kishore like only Kishore can. It is one of my most-favourite Gulzar piece.

Film: Aandhi

Music: R. D. Burman

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar

Lyrics: 🙂

Here goes…

Tere Bina Zindagi Se

Tere bina zindagi se koi shikva to nahin,

Tere bina zindagi bhi, lekin, zindagi to nahin.

 

Kaash aisa ho, tere kadmon se, chun ke manzil chalein,

Aur kahin, door kahin,

Tum gar saath ho, manzilon ki kami to nahin.

 

Jee mein aata hai, tere daaman mein,

Sar jhuka ke hum rote rahein,

Teri hi aankhon mein aansuon ki nami to nahin.

 

Tum jo kehdo to aaj ki raat chaand doobega nahin,

Raat ko rok lo,

Raat ki baat hai, aur zindagi baaki to nahin.

 

Tere bina zindagi se koi shikva to nahin,

Tere bina zindagi bhi, lekin, zindagi to nahin…
