Teri Aankhon ke Siva

Lyrics & Chords

Hi friend’s For A Change….Attempting a Rafi-Saahab’s Song,Which I Love a lot…
…From the film Chiraagh……Music by the Great “Madan Mohan kohli’ji”
.Lyric’s by “Majrooh Sultanpuri”….Based/Influenced—-On/by Raag Jhinjhoti….This particular Raag has many Hit song’s like “Chalo Dildaar chalo”…. “kya se kya Ho Gaya”……“Ghungroo ki tarah” etc….

This Song was Sung by lata’ji too with Same Mesmerizing Style…

Chiraagh is a 1969 Bollywood film directed by Raj Khosla. The film stars Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh in lead roles……

There are Certain Areas in this Song which I would’nt have perfected it to the Core,
To be Honest ,But ,I Have Given my Best to my capability & I know,that the Much,I Enjoyed Singing it,You will love it too…

Also,I have Recorded this Song,With an Altogether Different pattern this Time,by Keeping the Track Sound Very-Very low,And My Vocal Recording Track Also At a very low of -7db………So,You’ll Definitely Find it Very Different from the Normal….Pl let me know,How was The Final Effect……Hoping Some Suggestion’s for Sure….Many Thank’s in Advance for the Listen……

Sohag Bhai…Thank’s for Being Supportive Dost….

Srini-Bhai—-thank’s for your Encouragement & fav the Song….Probably Some-day,I’ll learn the Mixing technique So well,that,It will Sound like the Original singer…Haha….Anyway,As,In the previous version’s too,I have mentioned,I Alway’s Go with the flow of Song,without Actually 100 % Imitation,which is next to Impossible by Any-One….That Heaviness in my Voice,Does make it a Bit Difficult to Somewhat Replicate Rafi-Saahab,But Kishoreda’s Voice becomes fluent with it….But will try my level Best to Get closer Someday…….Thank’s Dear…

Rahul-Bhai….Very Happy with your Introspective & Detailed Review,Such Review’s Can Only Help Getting Better & Better….I am Very Much Aware,that the Delicateness & Softness with which,Rafi-Saahab Used to Render his Song’s is Impossible with a Heavy voice of Mine,Also his Subtle Harkat’s are Again next to Impossible to Exactly portray….But,Will Surely Keep in Mind these Minor Detail’s to perfect them,As,previously,I Used to love Rafi-Saahab’s Song’s ,But,Now,I Adore it to the Core……And Will Surely Give my 100% next time….

Sometimes,Mixing with his Song’s is Also Bit of a Task,I Believe A proper Mixing Technique will Also Help Getting Closer to his Style & Throw……Will Surely Consult you in that Case,Someday……Thank’s And Really thankfull for Sparing time & Giving Such Handy pointer’s….All the Best…

Jivan bhai,
Great choice of song! You have sung beautifully. It sounded like Kk is giving tribute to Rafi Sahab. Aapki gayeki mein harkatein bhi bahot pasand ayee. Singing wise aapney bahot he khoobsurat gaya, lekin aapke kuch geeton mein soulful singing hoti hai, wo missing lagee. Mixing bahot behtar lagee. I would consider this A+ rendition. Keep sharing, bro…
Keep singing,
Best wishes,

Dj Wazif said

Jivan bhai what a selection here…. always loved this song and your take on it was also lovely…. whoever you sound like shouldn’t matter much than you sound like yourself…. though your notes are nice but I just suggest if you use lower octave more in singing and sing in “Kharaj” you’ll sound much better and nice…. the mukhda especially could be sung in Kharaj and would sound more better…. anyhow thats just a suggestion and you’re already doing great bro…. just keep sharing like that.

Wish you Gr8 Luck!

Hema’ji—-Such a Comment can Surely Uplift One’s Soul….Thank’s Dear’ji…Tc….

Wazif-Bhai—-Aapne toh Bilkul Mere Mann ki Baat cheen-li,Was Just pondering On that,And Here you Stamped the Thought with your Apt Review….The Scale is not Much of a problem,As you have Correctly noticed,But Singing in Low Octave the Mukhda’s & Other Subtle places will Surely Give that Much Desired feel & polishness,Required for Any Rafi Saahab’s Song….

I Somewhat too thought of it,few times,But that Urge to Get into the Flow & Sing Whole Heartedly like Kishoreda takes the Better of me,But,Abhi toh Ye thaan hi liya hai ki Issko Sudhaarna,Especially for Rafi’ji’s Song is A Must to Set thing’s up….Soooo Thankful for the Correct thoughtful Observation & True Appreciation too,Love you Bhai….Tc…

Adwait Ranade Pro user said

Bahot khoob, Jivan Kohli ji:) Great to hear to Madanmohan ji-Rafi ji duo’s master piece in your voice. Felt like listening to a wonderful cover of Kishore Da’s version of this song (mein, kyaa, hai, and many other places are so Kishore Da like!)

Loved it, Bro!


Jivan Kohli (will be away for long--other commitment's..--busy on a learning mode---) said

Satheesh’ji—-You have Really Given A Big Smile to my face……But Again with Due Respect to Rafi-Sahab,would Surely like to Render his Style Some-day……In fact in Another few Day’s….

Music is Often to be Heard & Rendered or Practiced with it’s melody & Composition,More than Exactly Replicating,that’s what my Belief is & that’s what All Musical pundit’s till Today have preached & Will Remain that for life…Having One’s Own Originality is Also a Great plus point when we Think from the Musical Angle in a Broader perspective….Sonu Nigam Used to Copy Rafi-Saahab’s Song Almost to Near perfection,But Today Has Carved a Niche for Himself with his Own style……

Anyway Opinion’s May Differ…….Thank’s Sateesh’ji for Giving a Short But Sweet Opinion….


Jivan Kohli (will be away for long--other commitment's..--busy on a learning mode---) said

Adwait’ji—-I Am Such a Big Fan of Madan-Mohan Saahab,that I felt Really proud Sharing Atleast the Sir-Name with him haha………You Have Just like Sateesh’ji.Braught a Great Smile on my face……Would Surely like to Cover Rafi’ji in Rafi-Ishtyle Some day……Thank’s Tc,Best wishes….


Adwait Ranade Pro user said

Sure, Bro will like to hear other ishtaails too in ur voice but it was a compliment in the first place. I am a big fan of Kishore Da and really enjoyed ur take in his ishtyle, LOL.


Jivan Kohli (will be away for long--other commitment's..--busy on a learning mode---) said

Adwait’ji—I Surely have taken it as a Compliment Only,Just Thoda Baki feed-back Se Prerit Hoke likh Diya,Ishtyle….Hope you have taken it Humorously Bhai….Indian Music ke ye Teen pillar’s toh Humaari Prerna hain/Rahenge……Agar Innmey se Kisiko bhi Hum thoda bhi Match kar paayein toh,Ek Huge Compliment hi Samajhta hoon……But,Ek General Opinion,Yahi Mehsoos ki hai Maine ki,Log Exactly Ussi tarah Chahate hain,jaisa Original Singer ne Gaaya hai,But,Mera ye Maannaa hai,Ki Ek Baar jo Geet Bann jaata hai,Ya Record Kiya jaata hai,Ussey,wohi Original Singer bhi Replicate nahi kar Sakta…,Ek Baar jo Cheez Bann Gayi….woh Bann Gayi….,Ye Aapne bhi Mehsoos kiya Hoga….Kyunki Aap Khud Composition karte Ho….I know you Can very Well Understand that,Haan,Humlog Unse Inspire Hoke Unki tarah Gaane ki Koshish Zaroor kar sakte hai….Kyun ki Tonal Quality Nirantar Change Hoti Rehti hai……I am not Explaining it to You,On your Comment Basis,But in General….

Loved your Comment to the Core Bro….Best wishes,Alway’s…

Azam-Bhai—-I Fully Agree to Each & Every word mentioned & Expressed Above,& I am Also of the Opinion,that the Introspection to How this Great’s were Able to Sustain for So long which is Already a Great Achievement in Itself….is Something to Talk & ponder About in Detail……

You must be Aware or Not,I am not sure,But k.l.Saigal Saahab was an Inspiration to All these three Great’s,I have Read it in Some Article….And Each Used to Emulate Him in their Early Day’s….But later Created History with their Own Inimitable Style…….Lata’ji wanted to be like Suraiyya…She was in Great Awe of Her….But Carved a Great & Even Huger niche for Herself,there are Endless stories like that………

Of Course,with Due Respect to All these Great’s….Music when Sung in flow Gives a Much Better Effect,Rather than thinking About Some-One & Singing like that,You Can Come nearer But Not to perfection At All…….Of-Course they’ll Remain Our Inspiration,that Universal truth will Remain……

Many thank’s Azam’ji for an Indepth view,And would Surely join you on such thread’s whenever time permit’s….loved your Each particular thought with Due Respect….Tc & Best wishes….

Muzaffar Naqvi Pro user said

Very lovely this track is and who wouldn’t want to attempt such a beautiful song on it. Jivan you make me feel how transformation might have taken place if it was sung by KK. You maintained the concept and sang with heart and throat both. One caution though never break a word like I heard at all 4 instances as Pal-kon, I don’t remember how it sounds in original but an extended l like Pal~kon would sound good and even better if its a deviation from the original. Did I hear Takhveer @ 3:09? Sign you probably got carried away in the melody. The Q in Taqdeer needs attention….but it is not your fault, this is what newer generation is getting used to it many pronounce as either k or Kh or khe in India and k in Pakistan….I wrote this much because I like this song. As for recording vocals your voice amplitude can sometimes fall into (-3 to 0dB) also called the head-room space but must never ever cross the 0dB limit, it will get clipped and make chirping noise. Stay just below -3dB and you will be fine. Enjoyed this song in your voice Jivan.


Jivan Kohli (will be away for long--other commitment's..--busy on a learning mode---) said

Thank’s Harry-Bhai for Enjoying the Song….In my Voice,Tc & Best wishes…

Muzaffar’ji Was Surely waiting for your Review….Whenever there is a Rafi version Song,I know,I have to be Careful in Rendering it,LOL……….Jokes Apart……I Really Appreciate your Angle in thinking,How Kk would Sound……Palkon Seem’s to me More or less as the Original One,But yes,About Taqdeer’s Q…I Can surely say,that pronunciation Could be polished slightly…As,these word’s are hardly Used in Our day to day language…….Regarding @3.09, After Hearing the final version,I too Sensed that,Whether,Have,I Sung it Takhveer.in flow….So,I had checked only my Vocal then,I found it Correct,But yes,I Agree,A Stress on that word made it Sound like that………….Also Apart from palkein,I must Admit,I must have surely varied slightly at places to Get Some space for Harkat’s/Murki’s which Other-wise was Slightly difficult to Render…….

Regarding the Vocal Volume,you have Again given a Valuable tip Here….Because keeping at -7db,….when the Noise Reducing process was Done,It Did make my Vocal sound a Bit muffled & technical too….Would surely keep in Mind……Thank’s Again for Accepting the Song,in my Vocal’s……Would Surely Modify by taking All the Above tip’s too……Shukriya Sir’ji….for Alway’s blessing my song’s with Apt Review…Best wishes…


Harshan Nambiar Pro user said

Jivan bro….lovely song pick and rendered it in your own style:) Just felt that you could have induced some softness in this rendition…remember KK also used voice modulations in his eternal songs like kuch tho log kahenge…kept it soft ….in fact all his songs for Rajesh Khanna…were soft….i liked this rendition in your voice and style….no nakal wakal but thoda aur modulations :)….loved it.

Jivan… Wonderful singing of this great old gem in your own dulcet, deep and unique voice. You have an enviable voice timbre and those subtle voice modulations you give are too difficult even to imitate…
Excellent feel and warmth in your singing and loved it to the core.
Kind regards,


Giri∂hαrαη. u. r. Pro user said

Rahul, Azam ji, Naqvi ji and Harshan… To read all the comments by doyens like you all was also like taking a lesson on Hindi film music and the techniques of singing and also the response by you Jivan. That was very informative and I am sure as long as such enthusiastic connoisseurs and supporters like you all are there in this forum people like me can learn a lot on techniques on music and singing, which otherwise is not possible…

But while reading some of the comments above, I really wonder why we should strive to sound like Rafi saheb, Kishore da or Mukesh ji when we sing their songs and why one should comment about how similar or different we are from the original singer’s voice! The lyrics and tune and background music have their own life and originality which would shine in any voice if sung properly with feel and melody. If we choose only to imitate these great singers (which is extremely impossible) it would ultimately sound like a mimicry only. This is my humble opinion.

Thank you all for informative comments, it was nice reading such detailed feedback…
Kind regards,


Harshan Nambiar Pro user said

Giri etta….this is what I do ….all the time…because my voice is pretty distinct….I just try to follow the style of the original singer…not trying to sound like them. When I say style I mean the voice throw and modulations….so that soul of the original composition is done a little justice….because if you look at the composition from a composers stand point….there is a reason why a specific song was given to rafi saab, Kishoreda, Mukesh,Talat, Mahendra kapoor….it was for their style of singing and voice offcourse….However I also agree with you why one should worry about how the original was sung….I have seen a video where kishoreda as a tribute to rafi saab sings Man thadpat in his own style without copying rafi saab….and there were some real nasty comments….and me being a huge kishoreda fan …felt bad at those comments…but i felt the same as what the others felt :) Agree with Azam bhais pointers …esp….pointer number 2….Those “unforgettable” memories are not just playing in your head but they also are playing in the listeners’ heads…and this is so true with gems. Jivan bro sorry for using up your space :) but this is healthy discussion :)

Srini S said

Jivan bhai agar meri taraf se koi ghalati ho to maaf kar dena.What i meant is not only this song but when i hear your other songs also you sound like kishoreda i mean you have a natural voice like dada and you dont copy or imitate anyone and that too the depth in your voice is like kishoreda’s depth.Aap koi bhi gaana gaaiye aapka voice mein kishoreda ka flavour hai.You have a natural voice like him.Aap bura na maaniyega.Kishoreda is kishoreda and jivan is jivan.All the best.

Copying or imitating is different and having a natural voice like a original singer is something different.They are god gifted.

I fully Side your view On the kishore-da flavour,By God’s Grace that has Naturally Creeped in,And Am Deeply Honoured too,When Any Music lover link’s me with One Great Maestro like Kishore-Saahab……I am too Small in Comparison,And I Do Humbly Accept Such Gestures….

But,I Even Give Equal Weightage on Rafi-Saahab’s Song’s….If Only,I Could Render it to perfection,Some of his Subtle,Intricate & Mastered Style….That is just a thought,Desire….But Broadly Speaking,I am Surely of the Opinion,that,that should be my Aim,Not my Goal………Someday,I’ll Give a Blend of the Two…haha……As,I Adore Both a lot….

Bro, your Hindustani training shows quite evidently in your latest renderings…. Marvelous mate :-)!! What a difficult and high pitch song…. again you have pulled it off effortlessly.

One small thing is the vocals sounded a bit sharp…. you may have to tweak the treble or gain to make it a bit softer…. that will suit Rafi saheb’s songs quite well, I think….

Superb cover indeed….

Many thanks and warm regards,

Jivan bhai……I love this osng to the core and listening it in your voice was an added charm….

Jivan bhai;

First, sorry to be late, I have been too busy off late. Next, I love your zeal in pursuit of learning and continuous improvement!! The discussion above has been valuable for me as a novice amateur who is at the bottom rung of the amateur ladder in this forum. Your attempt for this song is commendable but from my perspective, you probably should reduce the vibrato in your vocals for the songs by Rafi sahab.

Cheers…. L+F

Jivan Bhai, zara daer se aa raha hoon per kafi dinin se soch raha tha sunane ka. Maine public singing issi geet se ki thi aur yeh geet hamesha hriday ke paas rahega! Maine discussions bhi padhe par main iss layak nahin hoon ki kuch arpit kar sakoon. Mujhe aapka version accha laga. original se hat ke kuch jagahon pe aapne apna rang dikhaya hai jo mujhe bhaya. Log mehfilon mein jaate hain original geeton ko naye rang mein sunane ke liye. Yadi original hi sunana hai toh CD pe suna jaa sakta hai. Haan kuch geet aise hote hain jinse chedkhan bohot samhal ke karna padta hai. Ek sur bhi galat laga to gire khai mein! Meri asha bhi hai iss geet ko cover karne ka – ab inspiration mil gaya hai!
