There is No Fate But What We Make: How I miss good lyrics in bollywood songs!

How I miss good lyrics in bollywood songs!

I wonder why we stopped producing good lyrics in film songs now…. heard the song “Fazaa Bhi Hain Jawaan” on radio the other day … and my heart skipped a beat... the haunting, nasal and very melodious voice of Salma Agha is just awesome… not to mention that the film Nikaah is a very good film making a case for women’s liberation. For some reason, many films with strong women’s role and promoting women empowerment tend to have great songs (example: Umraao Jaan, Damini).

Anyway, enjoy the lyrics:

fazaa bhee hain jawaan, jawaan,
hawaa bhee hain rawaan, rawaan
sunaa rahaa hain ye samaa,
sunee sunee see daasataan

pukaarate hain door se,
wo kafile bahaar ke
bikhar gaye hain rang se,
kisee ke intazaar ke
lahar lahar ke honthhapar,
wafaa kee hain kahaniyaan

bujhee magar bujhee nahee,
na jaane kaisee pyaas hai
karaar dil se aaj bhee,
naa door hain naa paas hai
ye khel dhoonp chhaanw kaa,
ye kurbate, ye duriyaan

har yek pal ko dhoondhataa,
har yek pal chalaa gayaa
har yek pal firaak kaa,
har yek pal wisaal kaa
har yek pal guzar gayaa,
banaa ke dil pe yek nishaan

sunaa rahaa hain ye samaa,
sunee sunee see daasataan
