Gullu bhai ke Gugule Geet

Film maker, script writer & now only lyricist guljar is more refreshing. He has left the glamour to write magical words like nasheman, sili, sust kadam, bheege-bheege din, simti si rat, katra katra jine do, sapno pe paon pad gaya tha etc. Those words may sound good but unable to understand easily. Evan RD had asked him - Yaar nasheman kis shahar ka naam hai. If Rd is alive today he will happiest person to see that guljar is now lighting Bidi & writing about kajrare naina and namak ishk ka. As I think this has started from RGV's SATYA when he has written goli maro & sapno main. Though he has also written badlon se kaat kaat ke kagjon pe naam jodna in this film but that was needed for some traditional fans of guljar who expect such classical chutiyapa from him. Even I like his Roz roz ankhon tale, badlon se kaat kaat, main ek sadi se & many more for his sweet & soft poetry with interesting UPMA & RUPAK. But filmy song is something different from Urdu najm & poetry like ek hi khweb kayee baar dekha hain maine. This had proved by noted lyricist Shailendra in the beginning when sahir ludhiyanwi, Raja mehandi ali khan & other poets were busy in writing wafa, jigar, najar, khata, sajda, kalma, khwahish, dariya, kabil, manjil, guftagu, justaju, gustakhee type ghajals and najm, shailendra had written sajanwa bairi ho gaye hamar & chanda re more bhaiya se kahana which is more near to understand by common viewer. That is the reason javed akhter is more populer then guljar today. number of his hit songs are larger then gullu da. You can't reject it by cheep popularity. Ek ladaki ko dekha and kuch na kaho and o palanhare & radha kaise na jale is not less poetic and sweet then khali haath sham aayi hai or thodi si jami thoda asman. Even in Omkara guljar hasn't left the greed to write main chand nigal gayi daiya re, bhitar bhitar aag jale, baat karoon to sek lage. But is it interesting to listen aankhen bhi kamal karti hai, personal se sawal karti hai from kajrare.

ye dhuan dhuan sa rahne do
mujhe dil ki baaten kahne do
main pagal deewana tera
mujhe ishq ki aag main jalne do

Today, i was set along with some unknown person at a tea stall. He was smoking. After inhaling smell of his cigarette i felt - smell of cigarette smoke has potential to make me DEEWANA. There is the time when i was used to smoking. These was collage days. Around 10-15 cigarette i smoke in a day. Though these were not in full lenght, All of them were shared by Langotias. We have smoke 8-8 person in a cigarette. Those were days of gareebi. we have to compromise even with bidi. At collage and at home everywhere we have fixed a cigarette seller, who were ready to give us Udhar. We were always being loaded with heavy credits. These shopkeeper were always reminding us for this and we always make some bahana and cheat them emotionally. But they became our very close friends. Even today if any one of us will go Bhopal, he meet them. They will open there credit copy and show us our udhar throw some heavy Gali upon us. Generally we gave him some amount but udhar will continue they give us packet of wills and write it's price upon his copy. They will never erase our name from his udhari copy and even we can't gave them full amount of their debt. This credit will last whole life as i think.Let it, our topic is about smoking. We have three stages. When we got money from our parants we smoke classic, in mid of month we use wills and gold flake and at last of month we lost every ana we perchase Bidi. Though Bidi gives unplesent smell but we have to acomodate with it in kadaki days. I have very interesting experiences with bidi smoking. Once i and one of my friend was standing in balcony and taking kuss of bidi like amitabh bachchan in deewar. Both of us was in towel. A person below our building was seaching any apartment, that was our own building where we were standing. We said him - yahi hai bhiya, pichhe se ander aa jao. After just two minuts we listen a knock on our door. He was searching one of our roommet. He was his Jijaji. I smoke large number of bidi at kuchh. we where there after earth quake. A group with which we were enguage for relief work, we had told them only we need from them was cigarette. They have fixed a shop at ahmadabad near their building for us and we are free to perchage as much cigrette we need. We were there 22 boys. At ahmadabad we get solution but when we go to villages for relief work & stock of cigarette ends. Then we were depanded upon bidi of local villegers. When we were enguaged in distributing relief a villeger was fixed by us for litting bidi and providing us regulerly. But a girl had snached this happiness from me. Once she said to leave smoking and i left, because i was impressed by the way she told me to leave this. Hypertetion is another major cause for this . Aur ab main sirf tarsta hoon cigrette ke liye. I love to smoke but i am unable to take even a kuss.I remember a villeger told me about smoking, are yaar kaun kahta hai ham nasha karte hain. hum to bas apne bhagawan ko agarbatti dikhate hain.

Ghajal (new meaning for me)

Ghajal is always representing romantic feeling in its reader & listeners. Ghalib had said marvelous lines which has power to create Strom in the hearts. But after reading novel of Dr. Jilani bano, EVAN-E-GHAJAL my perception changed totally.

'What is Ghajal?'
conversation between lovers?'
'But we haven't listen any ghajal read by mashooque for his ashique. It is just one way communication, but ahsique for their mashooque.'
'Why any ashique telling ghajal for his mashooque?'
'Because he wants to persuade her. Convince her that he is the man who made for her.'
'when we are trying to convince anyone we speak lie many times. Like you are beautiful like butterfly, like moon. Ur laughter is like waterfall. Ur body is like marble etc.'
'This is actual ghajal that we read.'
'tere aane ki jab khabar mahke
teri khushboo se sara ghar mahke.'

according to Jilani, when hunter captures a deer and aimed his weapon upon it. The feeling shows in it's eyes at that time was actually ghajal.
Ghajal is bundle of false thrown by men upon woman for confusing them. Women are such innocent that she believes upon ghajal easily & lost her whole life for two lines of praise in form of ghajal.
