Guzarish (Preview+Lyrics)

January 30, 2008
Ya Ya !! I know what you are going to say!! What is Anne’s pic doing for a song on nature (and where there was a banyan tree pic earlier). The reason for that is for the whole song, she was on my desktop, and when it got very late in the night, I would just look at her and Vooo!!...I was back to normal..(with a slight sinking feeling in the heart I might add). I think I might be Lovesick for a while !!!

This is a song I wrote whilst sitting in a train and gazing out of the window while I was on way to Ranthambhore in Rajasthan for a wildlife expedition. There is a peaceful, easy feeling I get when I think of these forests. They are actually the places I feel most at home between the trees, the animals, the wild flowers, the music of the birds and the fresh scent of the mornings. This song actually draws up a picture of how I feel about these things.

"Dheemi Dheemi dhoop main
Thandi hava ke jhonke
Dheere dheere chhaya se
Pedon ke neeche khelte
(this means the play of shadows under the tree by the gusts of breeze)

Patton ki sarsarahat bhi
Sangeet Naya sa cheden
Neele Neele pani ne
Taare saare hain samete
(this means the reflection of the sunlight in the water)

Chorus:

Agar ye din tham bhi jaaye
Teri Yaadon Ke Saaye
Aur fursat se Guzarne ki Guzarish hai

Woh Aangan mai Bargadon
Ki daalon se jhoolna
Ambar mai kore badalon
Ke aakaron se khelna

Sardiyon Ki dhoop main
Yahin mai ghum ho jaata hoon
Yehi woh jagah hai,
Jannat jisko bulata hoon

Chorus:

Agar ye din tham bhi jaaye
Teri Yaadon Ke Saaye
Aur fursat se Guzarne ki Guzarish hai”

People have just got to experience the magic of being in the Indian Villages and Forests. It is unlike any experience you can get anywhere in the world.

“ I hope you will see me, on the other side of Life and say Hi !!”
