Ae dil mujhe aisi jagah le chal

Link to the song: Ae dil mujhe aisi jagah le chal

Today I woke up with this beautiful Talat Mehmood (Aarzoo, 1951) classic playing in my head:

Ae dil mujhe aisi jagah le chal jahan koi na ho
Apna paraaya meharbaan naa-meharabaan koyi na ho
Ja kar kahin kho jaaun main, neend aaye aur so jaaun main,
Duniya mujhe dhoondhe, magar mera nishaan koyi na ho...

O' heart, take me to a place where there is no one,
People I call my own, strangers, no one.
A place where on reaching I drift off to sleep,
The world searches, but finds no trace of me...

Wow, what poignant lyrics! Of course, the song sounds best in Talat Mehmood's silky voice, but here's my attempt at the song.

  2. Sung well Paresh! It will sound even better if you sing in a higher pitch.

    1. Thanks Ma'am! ...for your appreciation and suggestion. I sang the song in the same pitch as Talat Mehmood's, but I guess I sound different because I don't have a thin and silky voice like him.
