Yesterday I shared one of my all time favorite, “Jinhe naaz hain hind par, wo kahan hain ?“.

Sharing another one, “Jaane wo kaise log the jinke pyaar ko pyaar mila” from the same movie, “Pyaasa”.

The beauty is not just in the songs of this era but how before the mukhda begins, there’s always a prologue to the song itself. Like it was a story in itself.

Humko apna saaya tak.. aksar begaar mila..”

Hamne to jab kaliyan maangi.. kaanton ka haar mila.. 

I clearly remember the first time I watched Pyaasa, I took my Dada’s shawl and draped it like Guru Dutt and tried my best to sing this.

I’d request you to take some time and watch this gem of a movie, Pyaasa, If you haven’t. It not only is Guru Dutt’s best but also has some of the best songs of that era. Thanks to Sahir Ludhiyanvi.
