Yeh Hausla Kaise Jhuke

It is when I hear songs like this I realize the HFM has still not lost it all. I don't listen to new music unless I accidently hear it somewhere and find it interesting, then I do listen to it. This year, Zee TV's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 has been fantastic in that sense. Specially for me, I've discovered some really great new melodies that I would have never listened to otherwise. When Amanat Ali sang this song on June 23, I remember I loved the song and then Ismail Darbar said that may be this was one song that deserved to be the one who won his ultimate gift. Both the versions of this song - one by Amanat Ali and Shafaqat Ali Khan are fantastic. I can't decide which one I like more. I do wish Amanat sang the entire song on the show (so greedy!) but it was lovely nevertheless. I love the soulful music that goes with the song by Salim-Sulaiman. And it was first time I read the name of this lyricist - Mir Ali Hussain. Beautiful words he has penned. Such a great contribution to HFM by all of these artists! As I read somewhere, this is the kind of the songs that grows on to you with time and it's so true.


(yeh hauslaa kaise jhuke
yeh aarzoo kaise ruke) (2)

manzil mushkil to kyaa
dhoondhlaa saahil to kyaa
tanhaa yeh dil to kyaa ho

raah pe kaante bikhre agar
uss pe to phir bhi chalnaa hi hai
shaam chhupaale suraj magar
raat ko ek din dhalnaa hi hai
rut yeh tal jaayegi
himmat rang laayegi
subah phir aayegi ho

ho ho ho

(yeh hauslaa kaise jhuke
yeh aarzoo kaise ruke) (2)

(the flute playing here is absolutely beautiful!)

ho ho ho

hogi hume jo rehmat adaa
dhoop kategi saaye tale
apni khudaa se hai yeh duaa
manzil lagaa le hum ko gale
jurrat sau baar rahe
unchaa ikraar rahe
zindaa har pyaar rahe

ho ho ho

(yeh hauslaa kaise jhuke
yeh aarzoo kaise ruke) (2)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(sad)
aa...
rishte bharose chaahat yakeen
un sab ka daaman ab chaak hai
samjhe the haathon mein hai zameen
mutthi jo kholi bas khaak hai
dil mein yeh shor hai kyon
imaan kamzor hai kyon
naazuk yeh dor hai kyon
kesariya... baalam...

Thanks, Senty, for stopping by. Most of the new stuff we hear does not meet our expectations if we are an oldies fan. The quality and the visuals have deteriorated. The camera is not in one place for even 5 seconds and the music does not touch our souls. Even then, I am glad that there are some good songs that I have discovered.

My favorite song! Lifts me up everytime i listen to it!

Kanan said...

Neha, that's exactly how I feel too.. specially listening to "shaam chhupa le..."

My favorite lines of the song

मंज़िल मुश्किल तो क्या,
धुंधला साहिल तो क्या,
तनहा ये दिल तो क्या, हो....

Kanan said...

Neha, that is an absolutely beautiful and uplifting thought. I like the simple picturization of the song as well. First time I liked the Takia girl. And of course the philosophical and spiritual touch to the lyrics, specially in these lines:

अपनी खुदा से है येह दुआ
मंज़ील लगा ले हम को गले
