Gulzar Sahab in Delhi, this weekend

This weekend will be an utterly special one, especially for all residents of New Delhi. A memorable evening is making its way, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the lovers of poetry, art, theatre and films. 6 PM onwards this Saturday, acclaimed poet, writer, director, lyricist Gulzar Sahab will be reciting some of his poetry to a live audience at Sirifort Auditorium at an event presented by Fever Entertainment. The gems written with his pen, shall resonate in your hearts and minds forever. Someone must truly share the emotion when fans believe that a poem a day keeps boredom far away, and when you have the famous writer’s works to listen to, this could totally be an unforgettable experience. 

From writing poetry, to lyrics for songs, to writing screenplay to directing films, Gulzar Sahab has given everyone something to reminisce about with each work of his. When it comes to films, his trademark lies in always using a flashback technique, as he believes that the present is never complete until the past is reflected upon. So poignant, so true. 

Here are some of our favorite lyrics from the songs penned by the legend (written as couplets):

1. Humne dekhi hai | Khamoshi | Starring Waheeda Rehman and Rajesh Khanna 

♫ Humne dekhi hai inn ankhon ki mahakati khushboo

Haath se chhuke ise rishtoN ka ilzaam na do

Sirf ehsaas hai yeh rooh se mehsoos karo

Pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do koi naam naa do ♫ 


2. Maine Tere Liye Hi | Anand | Starring Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan 

 Choti baatein,

Choti choti baaton ki hai yaadein bani,

Bhoole nahin beeti hui ek choti ghadi,

Janam janam se, aankhen bichaaye, tere liye in rahon mein  


3. Thoda Hai Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai | Khatta Meetha | Starring Ashok Kumar, Rakesh Roshan, Bindiya Goswami 

 Thoda hai thode ki zaroorat hai

Zindagi phir bhi yahan khoobsurat hai

Thoda hai thode ki zaroorat hai…  

Jis din paisa hoga, woh din kaisa hoga

Uss din pahiye ghumenge, aur kismat ke lab chumenge

Bolo aisa hoga… 


4. Aanewala Pal | Golmaal | Starring Amol Palekar, Utpal Dutt, Bindiya Goswami 

♫ Aanewala pal janewala hai, 

Ho sake toh ismein zindagi bita do

Pal jo yeh janewala hai ♫


5. Mera Kuchh Samaan | Ijaazat | Starring Naseeruddin Shah, Rekha and Anuradha Patel 

♫ Mera kuchh samaan tumhaare paas padaa hain, 

Saawan ke kuchh bhige-bhige din rakhe hain,

Aur mere ek khat mein lipati raat padi hain,

Wo raat bujha do, mera woh samaan lauta do 


6. Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi Shikwa | Aandhi | Starring Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen 


♫ Kash aisa ho tere kadmon se chun ke manzil chale… aur kahi door kahi

Tum gar saath ho, manzilon ki kami to nahi

Tere bina zindagi se koyi shikwa to nahi ♫ 


7. Chhod Aaye Hum Woh Galiyaan | Maachis | Om Puri, Chandrachur Singh, Tabu, Jimmy Sheirgill 


Jahaan tere pairon ke kanval giraa karte the

Hanse toh do gaalon mein, bhanvar padaa karte the

Hey teri kamar ke bal pe, nadi mudaa karti thi

Hansi teri sun-sun ke, fasal pakaa karti thi

Chhod aaye hum woh galiyaan ♫ 


8. This is a poem that was written by Gulzar Sahab and was used in the film, Kya Dilli Kya Lahore that released across cinemas on May 2, 2014: 


Lakeeren hain… toh rehne do, 

Kisi ne rooth kar, 

Gusse mein shayad khench di thi 


Inhi ko ab banao paala, 

Aur aao Kabaddi khelte hain Lakeeren hain… toh rehne do! 

Mere paale mein tum aao, mujhe lalkaaro 

Mere haath par tum haath maaro, aur bhaago 


Tumhe pakdu liptu, 

Aur tumhe waapas na jaane doon 

Laqeerein hain toh rehne do 

Tumhaare paale mein jab kodi-kodi karta jaaun main 

Mujhe tum bhi pakad lena 

Mujhe chhoone nahi dena wo sarhad ki laqeerein! 


Kisi ne rooth kar, Gusse mein shayad khench di thi

Be there, this Saturday!
