Mitwa (Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna)

Lyrics & Chords

My rendition of my most favorite Bollywoood song till date, with music by my most fav Trio, featuring my most fav Star, sung by someone who I really worship and a song, I believed, loved by one and all.

I used to be singing this song so frequently at Wipro Pune events that there came a time when people told me, “Iss baar bhi wohi gayega kya?” (Will you be singing that same one this time, too?)… LOL!!

Never mind. A good song. Remains good.

DISCLAIMER: I have a completely zero classical background and this song has a lot of the ‘harkatein’. I have tried to do them to the best of my ability and made them sound non-classical and filmy. Apologies to all who do not approve of it :)

Very well sung even without being classically trained you’ve pulled off the harkats. Was wondering whether you sang the swar and the alaap which comes b4 the first antara or it’s part of karaoke? If it was you then you sounded amazing.

Very well sung Bodhi! You sounded quite comfortable singing the classical portions also. Only nitpick is that at some places there were very slight pitching issues. You hit the note but not perfectly….something to watch out for. Otherwise great job!

Looks like we have a common ground….Wipro Pune :-) I worked there 2003-2005.

Bodhi Bhai,
Top class selection.
It’s my all time favourite song. Lovely voice and singing. I have heard a live version of Shankarji with many harqats in variety of ways. It was simply out of this world experience.
You too have done a wonderful job. Congrats!

Vishak Subramoney said

lovely singing….a difficult song to render.
5:05 was also well done….very very tough. most of the other classical parts were also good, a little more practice would make it perfect.

@Vishak: I totally agree with you about the ‘practice’ part :D

Bodhi ji, Very nice rendition for this tough song…. I like your story at Wipro too !! Lack of classical training is well compensated by your natural talents and enthusiasm to take on the tough songs. Great Job…………
