Lyrics & Chords

Hello Friends,here is my humble attempt, a Ghazal originally sung by Jagjit Singh,Chitra singh ji.
Hope,you’ll enjoy it.

I’ve given below the whole poetry.
-——————————————————————————————————
Album : The Golden Collection-Jagjit and chitra Singh
Music : Jagjit singh
Lyrics : Firaq Gorakhpuri
Artists : Jagjit singh,Chitra singh.
-——————————————————————————————————
Cover : Hema Shamal
-—————————————————————————————————-

Bahot pehle se un qadmon ki aahat jaan lete hain
Tujhe ai zindagi hum duur se pehchaan lete hain

Meri nazrein bhi aise qaafiron ka jaan-o-imaan hai
Nigahein milate hi jo jaan aur imaan lete hain

Tabiyat apni ghabarati hai jab sunsaan raaton mein
Hum aise mein teri yaadon ki chaadar taan lete hain

Khud apnaa faisala bhi ishq mein kafi nahin hota
Use bhi kaise kar guzarein jo dil mein thaan lete hain

Jise surat bataate hain pata deti hain sirat ka
Ibaarat dekh kar jis taraha maani jaan lete hain

Jughe ghaataa na hone denge kaarobaar-e-ulfat mein
Hum apne sar tera ai dost har ehasaan lete hain

Hamari har nazar tujhse nayi saugandh khaati hai
To teri har nazar se hum naya paigaam lete hain

‘Firaq’ aksar badal kar bhes milta hai koi qaafir
Kabhi hum jaan lete hain kabhi pehchaan lete hain

Bohut achhe Hema. Ending words per tu aisa laga jaise Chitra ki he awaz ho. Bohut umdah modulations aur harkatein lagayein. Aik Zindagi per nao thodi dagmagayee laikin usske baad tu paani ke saath behti chali gayee. Kiya baat hai koi Riyaaz Shiyaaz shuroo kar diya hai kiya???….LoL. Sheen Qaaf bhi bohut achha thaa aapka. Bohut khushi hoti hai jab efforts nazar aati hain. Very Nice.

Bahot khoob, Hema ji. Haven’t heard this song, but really enjoyed this classic Jagjitji ghazal. The beat and tune remind me of Hothon se Choo lo tum. Guessing this ghazal beat was popularised by Jagjitji. Door Pehchaan lete hain was so beautiful. :-)
