Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Aap ki nazron ne samjha pyaar ke kaabil mujhe
Dil ki ae dhadkan thaher jaa, mil gayee manzil mujhe

Ji hamein manzoor hai aap ka yeh faisla
Keh rahi hai har nazar banda parvar shukriya
Hanske apni zindagi mein kar liya shaamil mujhe

Aap ki manzil hoon main, meri manzil aap hai
Kyoon main toofaan se daroon, mera saahil aap hai
Koi toofaanon se keh de, mil gaya saahil mujhe

Pad gayee dil par mere aap ki parchhaaiyaan
Har taraf bajne lagee saenkdon shehnaaiyaan
Do jahaan ki aaj khushiyaan ho gayee haasil mujhe

Na Tum Hamen Jano – Baat Ek Raat Ki (1962)

Today’s focus is Sachin Dev Burman, the composer who gave us unforgettable compositions throughout his career spanning over three decades since the thirties, which were as rooted in the folk traditions as they were in their urbane elan. In Baat Ek Raat Ki (1962), his compositions were rendered by Hemant Kumar and Geeta Dutt – picturized on Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman.

Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri

Na Tum Hamen Jano, Na Hum Tumen Jane
Magar Lagta Hai Kuchh Aisa, Mera Humdum Mil Gaya

Ye Mausam Ye Raat Chup Hai, Ye Hontho Kii Baat Chup Hai
Khaamoshi Sunaane Lagi, Hai Daastaan
Nazar Ban Gayee Hai, Dil Ki Zabaan

Mohabbat Ke Mod Pe Hum, Mile Sabko Chhod Ke Hum
Dhadakate Dilo Ka Leke, Ye Kaaravaan
Chale Aaj Dono, Jaane Kahaan
