ASAD - 79

Originally posted on rec.music.indian.misc in 1997

In old Hindi movies, one meets GHazal every now and then. The poets of previous generation were very comfortable while using this form of poetry to express the emotions. The Music Directors were capable of tuning a wide variety of GHazals. As a result, we have some top-class tunes for top-class GHazals. Let's see a wonderful sher from such a combination today.

The bitter sarcasm of this sher is really extra-ordinary.

tumhi_ne gham ki daulat di, badaa ehsaan farmaayaa,
zamaane_bhar ke aage, haath failaane kahaaN jaate ?!
- Shakeel

I just love this sher! One of the best in movies. Lata has poured all her magic into this song. A great song in all aspects. BTW, which song is it ? :-) This should not be very difficult, right ? :-)

- Abhay.
ASAD _also_ stands for "A Sher A Day" !
