Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo

This is probably the best ghazal ever sung! Farida Khanum simply mesmerizes you with her voice... God! it truely can't get any better than this. And even though I love Asha Bhosle a lot, she can't even come close to FK's version. I really wonder who has written this one. Some killer writer!

Listening to this ghazal one can tell that tabla is the soul of Indian music. And the harmonium just adds to the beauty of the ghazal. I can't stop listening to this one today!


aaj jaane ki zid naa karo (3)
yoon hi pehloo mein baithe raho (2)
aaj jaane ki zid naa karo

(haaye mar jayenge hum to loot jayenge
aisi baatein kiya na karo
aaj jaane ki zid na karo (2)) (2)

tum hi socho zaraa kyon naa roke tumhe
jaan jaati hai jab uthake jaate ho tum (2)
tum ko apni kasam jaan-e-jaan
baat itni meri maan lo
aaj jaane ki zid na karo
yoon hi pehloo mein baithe raho (2)
aaj jaane ki zid na karo
haaye mar jayenge hum to loot jayenge
aisi baatein kiya na karo
aaj jaane ki zid na karo

waqt ki kaid mein zindagi hai magar (2)
chand ghadiyan yehi hai jo aazaad hai (2)
inko khokar main jee jaan-e-jaan
umra bhar na taraste raho
aaj jaane ki zid na karo
haaye mar jayenge hum to loot jayenge
aisi baatein kiya na karo
aaj jaane ki zid na karo

kitna maasoom rangeen hai yeh samaa
husn aur ishq ki aaj mein raaj hai (2)
kal ki kisko khabar jaan-e-jaan
rok lo aaj ki raat ko
aaj jaane ki zid na karo
yoon hi pehloo mein baithe raho (2)
aaj jaane ki zid naa karo
haaye mar jayenge hum to loot jayenge
aisi baatein kiya na karo
aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Kanan,
This Ghazal is relatively old one and I have heard it sung by somebody else but can not remember. I have Asha's version and I agree, she has sung in a bit slow rythum.

Hi Kiritmama, you're right. It is an old ghazal. I've only heard it by Asha and Farida Khanum. Would be nice to listen to the other singers' versions as well. Thanks for writing. :)
