Jagjit Singh & Chitra Singh | Someone Somewhere |

 We dedicate this ablum to the ever loving  memories of our  only son  Vivek, who left us forever, at the age of 18, on  the 28th of July 1990.

 

When  Vivek was  born, he  filled  our lives  with joy and music.  Baboo, as we  fondly  called him, gave  us all the success that we have had ever since he came into our lives.

 Baboo, right from his infancy, had a tremendous talent for

music. His passion was for rhythm and currently he used to

play the drums beautifully.

 Baboo has always  influenced our music with his astute and invaluable suggestions and constructive criticism. We were half way through recording these songs for a double ablum, when  Baboo left  us so  suddenly. These  are a few of the songs we had managed to complete earlier. We don’t know if these would have met with his approval.

1.   din guzar gaya, ai’thbaar meiN

raat kat gayI intezaar meiN

wo maza kahaN basLe yaat meiN

lutF jo milaa intezaar meiN

Unki ik nazar kaam kar gaYi

hosh ab kahaN hoshiyar meiN

mere kabze meiN aaiyeena to hai

maiN hooN aapke ikhtiyaar meiN

aanKh to uthee phool ki taraF

dil ulaZh gaya husn-haar meiN

tumse kya kaheN, kitne Gam saheN

hamNe be-wafa tere pyaar meiN

fikR-e-aashiyaan har khizaam ki

aashiYaan jalaa har bahaar meiN

kis taraH Ye Gham bhool jaaYe hum

wo juDa hua ishtihaar meiN

2.   meRi zindagi kisi aur ki, mere naaM ka koi auR hai

mera naqsh hai sar-e-aayina, pase aayina koi auR hai

meri dhaDkanoN meiN hai chaapsi, ye judaaee bhi hai milaapsee

muJhe kya patha, mere dil batha, mere saath kya koi auR hai

na gaYe diNo ko kHabar meri, na shareeke haal nazar teri

tere desh meiN, mere bhesH mein, koi auR tha, koi auR hai

wo meRi taraF niGraan rahe, mera dhyaan jaaNe kahaN rahe

meri aanKh meiN kai soorateN, mujhe chaahta koi auR hai

3.   ab ke barsaat ki ruTh aur bHi bHadkili hai

jisHm se aaG nikalti hai, kaBaN gili hai

sonchta hooN ke ab anjaam-e-safar kya hoGa

log bhi kaanch ke haiN, raaH bhi pathrili hai

pehLe rag-rag se meri kHoon nicHoDa us’sne

ab Ye kehtha hai ke rangat hi meri peelee hai

muJhko be-rang hi na karde kahiN rang itNe

sabz mausam hai, hawa surkh, fizaaN gili hai

4.   faasila to hai magar, koi faasila nahiN

muJhse tum juDa sahi, dil se to juDa nahiN

aasmaaN ki fiqR kya, aasmaaN khafaa sahee

aap Ye bataaye’e aap to khafa nahiN

kashTiyaaN nahiN to kya, hausle to paaS haiN

keh do na-khudaaoN se, tum koi khuDa nahiN

lijiye bula liya, aapko khayaaloN meiN

ab to dekhiYe hameN, koi dekhTa nahiN

aaeeye charaaG-e-dil, aaj hi jalaaYeN hum

kaisi kal hawa chali, koi jaanta nahiN

5.   aadmi aadmi ko kya degaa

jo bhi dega woHi khuDa dega

meRa qaatil hi mera munsib hai

kya mere haq meiN faisLa dega

zindagI ko kareeb se dekho

iska chehRa tumhe rulaa dega

hamse pucho dosthi ka silaa

dushmanOn ka bhi dil hilaa dega

ishq ka zehar pee liya ‘Faakir’

ab maseeha bhi kya dawa dega

6.   mere dukh ki koi dawa na karO

muJhko muJhse abhi juda na karO

na-khuda ko khuda kaha hai to fir

doob jaao khuda-khuda na karO

Ye siKhaya hai dosthi ne hame

dosth bankar kabhi wafa na karO

ishq hai ishq Ye mazaq nahiN

chanD lamhoN meiN faishlaa na karO

aashiqi ho ke bandagi ‘Faakir’

be-dili se to ye fida na karO

7.   koi samJhega kya raz-e-gulshan

jab taq ulJhe na kaanTon se daamaN

yaq-ba-yaq saamne aana jaana

ruk na jaaye kahin dil ki dhaDkan

gul to gul-zaar taq chun liye haiN

fir bhi kHaali hai khurchi ka daamaN

kitni aara’ishYen aashiyaana

TooT jaaye na nasha fir nashe meiN

HashmateN aashiyaana baNa dee

barF ko dosth samjhooN ke dushmaN

8.   dekHa to mera saaya bhi mujhse juda mila

socha to har kisi se mera sil-sila mila

sehar-e-wafa meiN ab kise ehl’-e-wafa kaheN

humse gale mila to wo hi be-wafa mila

furshaT kise thi jo meri haalaath poochchta

har shakhs apne baare meiN kuch sonchtha mila

ussne to khair apno se moda that mooh haya

maiNe ye kya kiya ke maiN gairoN se jaa mila
