Revisiting Classics – Yeh duniya agar

“Har ek jism ghayal, har ek rooh pyaasi
Nigahon mein uljhan, dilon mein udaasi
Yeh duniya hai ya aalam-e-badhawasi
Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai

Yahaan ik khilona hai insaan ki hasti
Yeh basti hai murda paraston ki basti
Yahaan to jeevan se hai maut sasti
Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai

Jawaani bhatakti hai badkaar ban kar
Jawaan jism sajtey hein bazaar ban kar
Yahaan pyaar hota hai byopaar ban kar
Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai

Yeh duniya jahaan aadmi kuch nahi hai
Wafa kuch nahi, dosti kuch nahi hai
Yahaan pyaar ki qadr hi kuch nahi hai
Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai”

Happy Birthday to a legend who left behind his immense body of work at an incredible age of 39! A legend who would have turned 92 today! Sahir Ludhianvi!

No one weaved in poetry in every frame of cinema like Guru Dutt did! In fact his cinema was poetry all over! ‘Kaagaz ke phool’ remains my alltime favorite, that chemistry between Guru Dutta and Waheeda Rehman was electrifying… I have loved Pyaasa, Saheb Biwi Ghulam and their likes as well..

Sheer loss for all cinelovers that we got so little of that magic…
