Many many thanks to Rashed bhai for taking the video. Thanks Anas for editing it with a beutiful heart aching song from Jagjit and Chitra….indeed it bring back the old memory growing up in Talab Kenar…this is exactly the nawabbari i have left behind and never found upon visit…..
Migrating is the hardest part of a human life. I can attest to that!
Lagtaa nahin hai jee mera, ujade dayaar mein
kis ki bani hai aalam-e-naa-paayedaar mein
Keh don in hasraton se – kahin aur jaa basen
itni jagah kahaan hai, dil e daag daar mein
umr e daraaz maang kar laaye the chaar din
do aarzu mein kat gaye, do intezaar mein
din zindagi ke khatam hue, shaam ho gayi
phaila ke pair soyenge kunj e mazaar mein
Kitna hai badnaseeb zaffar, dafan ke liye
do gaz zameen mil na saki, ku e yaar mein
