AE MERI ZOHRA JABEEN

Lyrics & Chords

This is a lovely, evergreen song sung by Manna Deyji from the film WAQT (1965). Fine music by Ravi and excellent lyrics by Sahir Ludhiyanavi. This is in Raag PILU.

This is picturised with Balraj Sahni as the singer in a qawwali type of setting, and Achala Sachdev is the female figure.

Here is MY version!

Lyrics

Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen – sung by V.S.Gopalakrishnan

Ae meri zohra-jabeen, tujhe maalum nahi
Tu abhi tak hai haseen aur main jawaan
Tujhpe qurbaan meri jaan meri jaan
Ae meri zohra-jabeen

Ye shokhiyaan ye baankpan,
Jo tujh mein hai kahin nahin
Dilo ko jeetne ka fan, jo tujh mein hai kahin nahin
Main teri¦
Main teri aankho mein paa gaya do jahaan
Ae meri zohra-jabeen¦

Tu meethhe bol jaan-e-man,
Jo muskuraake bol de
To dhadhkano mein aaj bhi,
Sharaabi rang ghol de
Oh sanam¦
Oh sanam main tera aashiq-e-jaawida
Ae meri zohra-jabeen

Gopal sir ….what a song pick. Alaap was fantastic….just very minor syncing issues with the beats off and on in the anthras….but really loved your rendition. Where did you get this ktrack? I could never find this anywhere…please let me know.
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love
