Ab Ke Hum Bichde Tu Shayad

Lyrics & Chords

Presenting one of the most popular ghazal by Ahmed Faraz that was sung by Mehdi Hasan and included in Film Angaarae (1972)and composed by A. Hameed. After listening to Mehdi Hasan it is evident why Jagjit Singh considered himself as one of his Shagirds. Mehdi Hasan was capable of singing the most simplest and the most complicated form of semi-classical music and have demonstrated through his live performances.

With aging (otherwise too) my Surs are not in my control but whatever is….I do care about that, specifically Adaeygi. Ghazal lovers must have heard its original or covers before. I hope you enjoy this ghazal that I am presenting a note below in B-Flat.

Dj Wazif said

Wow what a ghazal Naqvi saheb and what a feel and atmosphere it creates for the listeners…. being a die hard fan of Khan saheb I always love to listen to his gems even if he’s not singing. Yours was a ghazal version and your singing was beautiful. I can say you were right in mentioning about the modulations which is special to Khan saheb especially on those complicated lower notes…. some of those were excellent and some were your own…. so overall and wonderful tribute and I really loved it in your voice. Just try more of his gems reminding us his greatness. Thanks

Wish you Gr8 Luck!

Muzaffarji. Great rendition of the Ghazal of my favorite Ghazal singer Mehdi Hazan. I feel you have much resemblance of his voice and style.Keep it up and like to hear more Ghazals of mehdi hazan from your voice.
Be always with a music mind to be a good person

Naqvi sahab, this is one of the best cover versions I have heard, bar none! Khan Sahab ki ghazalein aur khas taur pe yeh ghazal mujhe bohot azeez hai iss liye khud try karne se darta hoon. Isme ki har harkat aapne sahi nibhayee. Ahmad Faraz sahab ki shayari bhi kamaal ki thi. Aam tuar pe filmi ghazalon mein shayar ka takhallus nahin hota per iss mein hai. Khan Sahab ne apni filmi ghazalon ko mefil ki ghazalon mein bhi tabdeel kiya hai aur iss ghazal ka mehfili roop bhi shaandaar hai. FAV!

BTW this ghazal is also based on Raag Bhoopeshwari or Vasanthi in Carnatic music. This is 5 note raag similar to Bhoopali and Aziz Nazan Chadhta Sooraj is also based on this raag!

Naqvi Sahab,

Another gem from you! Beautiful feel and presentation. Although I am yet to hear anything from you that leaves anything to be desired, I particularly love ghazals in your voice.

Enjoyed this one immensely! Smooth and comforting.

Loved it in your voice….Never heard the Original…But Sound’s Great…As far As Age part you mentioned sir…It Doesn’t A bit Resemble in your Beautiful Rendition…Really A pleasure to listen to this Gem of A song…lot to learn…from you sir…
thank’s for sharing….


♪♪♪ praveen Pandit ♪♪♪ said

Wow, what a composition of Ahmed Faraz saheb and what a lovely singing by you on this cover version. I have listened n number of times to Mehdi saheb version… but I must admit that you were really good in this one too. I didn’t understand your statement that “With aging (otherwise too) my Surs are not in my control…” are you talking about yours? If that is the case then I will strongly disagree that… aapki awaaz mein ab bhi itni miTHaas hai ki humesha mujhe yehi Dar lagta hai ki baar baar aapki gayaki sununga toh kahin mujhe diabetics na hojaye….lol.
Very nice singing Naqviji….great going keep singing and sharing…Goes to my fav.

Thanks and Regards,

Coming on ur space for First tym. Naqvi saab ghazal to bahut hi acchi hai aur apne janab gaya bhi itna umda!!! Aapke sur zarabhi nahi hile!!! aur bahut hi feel se gaya apne!!!!! Superb Goes to my Favs!!!!


Sudha Kumar (back to listen to all of you..) said

Lovely pick, Muzzafarji, and very beautifully rendered with impeccable control in your wonderful voice. Yes, as Rajeevji stated, this song is based on Bibhas or Bhoopeshwari, although he has a slightly different concert version which elaborates the raag more. I’m a big fan of Mehdi Saab and want to cover this ghazal sometime too. :-)
