Lyrics & Chords

Original singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Here is my version/rendition.

A lovely song (ghazal)in raag MULTANI sung by Lataji for the film DIL KI RAHEN (1973). Music was by Madan Mohan and lyrics were by Naqsh Lyalpuri.

LYRICS (lyricsmasti.com)

rasm-e-ulfat ko nibhayein to nibhayein kaise, (rasm=custom; ulfat=friendship)
har taraf aag hai daaman ko bachaayein kaise

dil ki raahon mein uthate hain jo duniya waale,
koi keh de ke wo deewaar giraayein kaise

dard mein doobey huye nagme hazaaron hain magar,
saaz-e-dil toot gaya ho to sunaayein kaise

bojh hota jo ghamon ka to utha bhi lete,
zindagi bojh bani ho to uthaein kaise

@Anand Sawkar : Thanks! Nice to be seeing you frequently.

@ Mushtaque Khan: Praise goes much more to composer and lyricist here than to Lataji. Many thanks!

@ Shivani: Your comments are so well worded. And are very kind. Critical remarks are welcome as I am a beginner.

Cheers to you all!

Beautiful tune, Raag Multani is really captivating VSG ji.
And your singing as usual is really great.
Would love to cover this song someday, since the beautiful melody of the song is still ringing in my ears… (I have downloaded your song also)
Kind regards,

Dear Dr.Giriji,
Thanks for the appreciation.
I would look forward to your rendition of this great melody composed by the master musician Madan Mohan.
