Reflections

Music beyond words!!

“Pur noor-e-bashar kahiye..ya noor-e-khuda kahiye..
Alfaz nahi milte…Sarkar ko kya kahiye..”

Main to piya se naina laday aayi re..
Ghar naari kanwari kahey so kahey..
Main to piya se naina laday aayi re…
Sohni suratiya, mohni muratiya..
Main to hriday ke peeche samayi aayi re..

Sej wo sooni, dekh ke roun.. roun main din rein..
Piya piya karat hoon haaye.. pal bhar sukh na chaen..


Bhai re mallah..tu jo humko, humko paar utaar..
Kaan ka deun main mundra, gale ka deun haar..
Sej wo sooni, dekh ke roun…


Piya ghar aaye ji, piya ghar aaye..
bhaag lagein is aangan mein..
Piya ghar aaye ji, piya ghar aaye..
Main toh khadi thi maang sajaye,
mehendi, kajra, sej sajaye..
Balhaari apne sajan ki,
gale lagaye nirdhan ko..
Piya ghar aaye….

Hazarat Amir Khusro – Ustad Shujaat Hussain Khan Sahab.




Listening to this beautiful music repeatedly,
i’m speechless…
The words are too much for me to even try to translate them..
And the music! 
So graceful..

And the heart melts…
Such divine mystical Love!!
That’s what makes poetry and music 
beyond this world..
