Toh Zinda ho Tum

I have always been an avid follower of Javed Saab's Poems. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was a poetry in itself.

I loved the movie. Mostly because it is just what soothes my soul. Poetry in between enactments! The beauty with which Farhan narrated them, brought out the grace. The poetry encapsulates the feeling of each character. The underlying meaning or moral of the movie is very beautifully expressed in these poems. I am still looking for the complete versions of all the poems, but right now the one that lingers fresh in my mind is this one..


dilon mein tum apni betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tumnazar mein khwaabon ki beejliyan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tum
hawa ke jhokon ke jaise aazad rehna sikho
tum ek dariya ke jaise lehron mein behna sikho
har ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein
har ek pal ek naya samaa dekhiye
jo apni aankhon mein hayraniyan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tum
dilon mein tum apni betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tum


Salute Javed Saab
