Woh Jo Hum Mein Tum Mein

Yesterday night I had a great time listening to a beautiful ghazal by Farida Khanam – Aaj Janay Ki Zidd Na Karo. I guess I must have heard it before but I had no clue about its singer, until my lady sent it. Tempted by this melodic & nostalgic provocation, I can’t resist mentioning Begum Akhtar. Woh Jo Hum Mein Tum Mein (lyrics) sounds everlasting as the ‘Queen of Ghazals’ herself.

vo jo ham me.n tum me.n qaraar thaa
tumhe.n yaad ho ke na yaad ho
vahii yaanii vaadaa nibaah kaa
tumhe.n yaad ho ke na yaad ho

ko_ii baat aisii agar hu_ii
jo tumhaare jii ko burii lagii
to bayaa.N se pahale hii
bhuulanaa tumhe.n yaad ho ke na yaad ho

kabhii ham me.n tum me.n bhii chaah thii
kabhii ham se tum se bhii raah thii
kabhii ham bhii tum bhii the aashnaa
tumhe.n yaad ho ke na yaad ho
