Writing 101, Day Three: Commit to a Writing Practice
My mother infused the love for music in me. She mostly used to sing devotional songs so I also loved them. I also love semi classical songs.
Mostly sung by Manna Day and Mohammad Rafi.
When I was in school final at that time my brother brought a radio, before that we used to hear songs in my neighbour’s radio. At that time most famous program was Binaca Geetmala, songs from Hindi Films.
From thousands of melodious songs it is hard to choose only three.
The first song which i love is
‘ Tu pyar ks sagar hai
Teri ik boond ke pyaase hum’
it is in Manna day’s melodious voice it touches the heart.
It means ‘God is ocean of love, I’m thirsty for even one drop of that.’
Second one of my favorite song is sung by Md. rafi.
‘ Man re tu kahe na dheer dhare, wo nirmohi moh na jane jinka moh kare’
‘utna hi upkaar samajh koi jitna saath nibhaa de’
This line teaches you that no one can die with you
so be grateful for whatever one can do for you.
Third song is by Mukesh
‘ Kisi ki muskurahaton pe ho nisar
Kisi ka dard mil sake to le udhaar
Kisi ke waaste ho tere dil mein pyaar
Jeena isi ka naam hai
“To fall for someone’s smile, to borrow someone’s grief, to love someone deep within, that is what life is all about.”
All songs I love summed up to one thing-
