Dil Ki Duniya Udaas Si Kyon Hai

new-2-21

“ Dil ki duniya udaas si kyon hai

kya yahaan se chala gaya koi,
Vaqte rukhsat gale laga ke Daagh
haste haste rula gaya koi….”

“…Aap ke baad har ghari humne
aap ke saath hi guzaari hai….”

Wafting like the cool, fresh and fragrant Himalayan breeze, these scintillating numbers of ‘The Voice from Beyond’ reverberating softly in the air, create a magical spell once again with the nostalgic old-world-charm of Jagjit ji’s mellow and haunting voice… enriched with the beautiful, quintessential background musical score… and soulful lyrics. What a sublime and out-of-the-world feeling…

  1. DARD HALKA HAI….
    Dr. Aparna chattopadhyay
    ‘Dard halka hai saans bhari hai,
    Jiye jaane ki rasm jaari hai’
    Each time one listens to this exquisite melody from ‘The Voice from Beyond’, it actually transports one to a world beyond… a world of dreamy, soft clouds, caressing one with their cool and feathery feel… amidst reverberating haunting, musical strains and soft nuances of Jagjit ji’s vivid and mellow voice… too subtle and sublime for words. The scintillating, magical spell of the melody and the meaningful, unusual lyrics of Gulzar ji weaving magic, enchant the senses instantly. As you ponder over the depth of their deep emotion, you begin to be overcome by an intangible sense of empathy…The tranquil and mystical background score grants you a sudden sense of release…. and exhilaration…mesmerising you completely. You long to linger on in its silky cocoon… and wish it was unending.
    Each song of the album enthrals with its thought-provoking and therapeutic effect. Soulful verses such as:
    ‘ Aap ke baad har ghari hum ne,
    aap ke saath hi guzaari hai…’

    ‘ Taa qayamat kisi tereh na bujhe,
    aag aisi laga gaya koi… ‘

    ‘ Hum ne apno se zakhm khaaye hain,
    tum to ghairon ki baat karte ho… ‘
    touch one’s psyche with their intensity and realism; their empathy, simplicity and brilliance… Could one ask for more?
    My heartfelt thanks and warm wishes to ‘The Voice from Beyond’. May the Divine bless you ever…..

    Dr. Aparna Chattopadhyay

    HAATH CHOOTEN BHI TO
    RISHTE NAHIN CHOOTA KARTE…
    DIL KI RAAHON PE
    JALNE WAALE CHIRAGH,
    WAQT KI BEREHEM HAWAAON SE
    NAHIN BUJHA KARTE…
    FALAK KE TAARE BHI
    BICHE JAATE HON JIN QADAMON MEIN,
    AISE QADAMON KE NISHAN
    NAHIN MITA KARTE…
    ZINDAGI JIN KE HONE SE HI
    ZINDAGI HO,
    DIL KI DUNIA SE WOH
    KABHI JUDA NAHIN HOTE…

    Many warm and loving wishes to you Jagjit ji, on your celestial happy birthday… This morning, I sent my earnest, heartfelt prayers for you—for your ethereal peace and happiness. This Feb. mornings’ pearly dew- drops outside my glass window and the Spring bird –song flashed back in my mind’s eye, nostalgic, fond memories of Feb.8th, 2011, your last birthday…..a memorable and especially auspicious one – as it fell on the sacred ‘Basant- Panchami’ and Saraswati puja day….embalmed by the mild fragrance of Spring blossoms and coloured with their myriad hues coupled with the spiritually powerful aura of the Goddess of Fine Arts and knowledge…. A rare gift of a birthday it was indeed… aesthetically, musically, and spiritually charged…. My birthday note to you had expressed my wishful prophecy: “This is going to be an especially significant year for you’’ Significant it was, yes— though in a rather uncanny way… for It completed your life’s journey in that very year… A journey, truly meaningful and successful…. having attained the highest peaks, the zenith of your creative genius… touching the lives of millions in a vast and beautiful way… lighting up the deep caverns of their hearts by giving them priceless moments of joy… of tranquillity… of ecstasy.
    Down the memory lane, those subtle, prophetic lines sung by you for ‘Nivedan’ ( your last devotional album of that year) come to my mind… “Hey Ma, mera nivedan sunlo/mujhe apne aanchal mein bun lo/phool sa mujh ko chun lo”. And She, the gracious one,did grant you your request… for you indeed became the Chosen—One by Her, for Her heavenly realm that very year. Lovingly offering you Her Divine Grace, she sheltered you in Her lap, away from the earthly anguish, disillusionment and despair.
    Jagjit ji, you are missed every moment as predicted beautifully by you in an unforgettable song of yours:
    “ Kabhi khamosh baithoge
    Kabhi kuch gungunaoge
    Mein utna yaad aaunga
    Mujhe jitna bhulaoge….”
    The velvety touch of your romantic voice….the intricacies and the quintessence of your true- to- life soulful melodies composed in your inimitable, captivating style…all are so very close to the hearts of millions till today. Your undying charisma is an enigma. Your enchanting compositions reverberate in the psyche of your listeners as your fond memories. Such memories are like fragrance..
    “ Muhabbat ek khusbu hai,
    Hamesha saath chalti hai,
    Koi insaan tanhai mein bhi,
    Tanha nahin rehta….”
    Who can forget these scintillating lines sung by you?
    Your mesmerizing presence lives on eternally…. As I gaze heavenwards, in the blue of the sky, through my misty windowpanes—I seem to spot you smiling softly, in the effervescent mists of the cosmos…an aura of gentleness surrounding you…and humming those meaningful lines of an old song of yours:

    “ Faasila to hai magar,
    Koi faasila nahin,
    Mujh se tum juda sahi,
    Dil se to juda nahin…”

    My moist eyes try to follow you desperately in that misty haze…but gradually you seem to disappear in those mysterious clouds…. Pensively, I ponder over those serene lines… So very true indeed. Inseparable from the hearts of your fans, you are ever present. Those hearts reverberating with your nostalgic memories, recall those sad lines sung by you; “Waqte rukhsat gale laga ke Daagh/ Haste haste rula gaya koi”….. They send you today, loving blossoms of their sincere gratitude, longing and adoration….and ardent prayers to the Cosmic Powers to grant you eternal, ethereal delight and celestial ecstasy— unfolding a fresh panorama of creativity, insight and brilliance for you — ever expanding your creative dimensions beyond time and space.
