Bulbul ne gul se…2 (Nightingale said to a flower)
Gul ne bahaaron se keh diyaa (flower said to the spring)
Ek chaudvi ke chand ne (the full moon said to stars)
Taaron se keh diya

duniya kisi ke pyaar mein (world for a lover)
jannat se kam nahin ( is not less than heaven)(jannat=heaven)
ik dilruba hai dil mein ( a sweetheart in the mind)(dilruba=sweetheart)
jo phoolon se kam nahin (is no less than a flower)

tum baadshaah-e-husn ho (you are the empress of beauty) (husn=beauty)
husn-e-jahaan ho (You are beauty of the world) (jahan=world)
jaane wafa ho (You are the closest) (jaan=life) (wafa=faith)
aur mohaabat ki shaan ho (and the glory of love) (shaan=glory)
jalwe tumhare husn ke (the splendour of your beauty) (jalwa=splendour)
taaron se kam nahin (is not less than stars)
duniya kisi ke pyaar mein

Very heart-warming rendition by you and I liked it very much.
(VSG ji, it will be a great service to listeners from non Hindi-belt like me to appreciate the composition more, if you provide the meaning of the lyrics in English also. I know but, it is too much to ask for!)

Couldn’t refrain from listening to your song as Mehdi Hasan saheb is my fav up all…. it was nice singing though it requires a lot of modulations and expressions. Just keep sharing like that bro.

Wish you Gr8 Luck!

Dear Dr.Giridharan,

Dear DJ Wajif,
Thanks for stopping over. Mehdi Hasan is my fav too.I have sung many of his ghazals already here.
Given the karaoke, there is little room for freeplay. In any case my singing cannot be even one-hundredth of Mehdi saab’s singing. I sing for my own pleasure. Your comments were encouraging nevertheless.
