Sulking On A Saturday

There are these days when you wake up with a song playing in your head… And today is Saturday… I should have been expecting a peppy party number. But, I am in Kuwait… and if you don’t work for one of those oil companies or the ministry, chances are you’d be waking up all groggy eyed and getting ready for work.

The thought of working on a day the rest of the world is enjoying sleeping in late, is a huge mood dampener. Now, combine that with waking up with a beautiful yet melancholic song in your head. Worse, it fits your situation to the T.
Haah! There’s your bummer!

Haunting as the song is, the voice of Kishore Kumar adds that emotional weight to the rendition. I can’t really remember the movie and the situation within it for the song. But, here is a situation… hmmm… no situation… I promised someone I would not let myself go. (By the way, jaan… get well soon!)

 
 

Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi rah gaya…
Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi rah gaya…
Jo likha tha aansuon ke sangh beh gaya…
Mera jeevan
Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi rah gaya…

Ek hawa ka jhoka aaya,
Ek hawa ka jhoka aaya, toota dali se phool,
Toota dali se phool…
Na pavan ki na chaman ki.. kiski hain yeh bhool…
kiski hai yeh bhool…
Kho gayi… kho gayi khusbhoo hawa mein, kuch na reh gaya… 

Mera jeevan…
Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi rah gaya…

Udte panchi ka tikhana,
Udte panchi ka tikhana… Mera na koi jahaan…
Mera na koi jahaan…
Na dagar hain, na khabar hain… jaana hain mujhko kahaan…
Jaana hain mujhko kahaan.
Bann ke sapna… bann ke sapna, humsafar ka saath reh gaya…  
Mera jeevan…
Mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi rah gaya…
