Classics revisited – Aaj bichhde hain

Khayyam, Gulzaar and Bhupinder create an absolute masterpiece with this one… lump in the throat song any time, any where…

“aaj bichhde hain, kal ka dar bhi nahin
zindagi itni mukhtasar bhi nahin

zakhm dikhte nahin abhi lekin
thande honge to dard niklega
ayesh utrega waqt ka jab bhi
chehra andar se zard niklega

kahanewalon ka kuchh nahin jaata
sahane wale kamaal karte hain
kaun dhoondhe jawaab dardon ke
log to bas sawaal karte hain

kal jo aayega jaane kya hoga
beet jaaye jo kal nahin aate
waqt ki shaakh todne waalon
tooti shaakhon pe fal nahin aate

kachchi mitti hain, dil bhi insaan bhi
dekhne hi mein sakht lagta hain
aansoo pochhe to aansuon ke nishaan
khushk hone mein waqt lagta hain”
