Kahin to hogi woh

There is nothing like perfect life or ultimate happiness. But many a times, you find yourself dreaming about that unattainable bliss. Tough goal may be achievable, crazy dreams realizable but some life you desire so much, some person you love so much, is just not made for you. “Impossible is nothing” or “Nothing is impossible”, both way round, stands useless here. For some stuck in situations of life, where despite all sweet ingredients of love with someone, you are bound to have separate destinations….and the thing you at the most can consoled yourself with is — to share the journey of life with the one. Don’t know how long but the longer the better. Understood and compromised and restrained but human heart still wishes for the impossible and laments for the lost chance time again. Some songs successfully capture all such emotions in simple words.

There must be some place where you and I can be together
Where only our emotions reign supreme
Where I can see morning sun rays through your lashes and
and hear Moon’s lullabies in your arms
Where is that world – if at all it exists?


Soulful music by AR Rahman, lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala and sung by Rashid Ali and Vasundhara Das, the song Kahin to hogi woh duniya from Jaane tu ya jaane na is sure to keep haunting me for days….If it make you sad, the other number Kabhi kabhi Aditi cheers you up.

Full lyrics:

Kahin to, kahin to, hogi woh
Duniya jahaan tu mere saath hai
Jahaan main, jahaan tu
Aur jahaan bas tere mere jazbaat hain

Hoti jahaan subah teri, palkon ki kirnon mein
Lori jahaan chaand ki, sune teri baahon mein
Jaane na kahaan woh duniya hai
Jaane na woh hai bhi ya nahin

Jahan meri zindagi mujhse
Itni khafa nahin
Jaane na kahaan woh duniya
Jaane na woh hai bhi ya nahin
Jahan meri zindagi mujhse
Itni khafa nahin

Saansein kho gayi hain kiski aanhon mein
Main khogayi hun jane kiski baahon mein
Manzilon se rahein dhundhti chali
Aur kho gayi hai manzil kahin raahon mein

Kahin toh, kahin toh, hai nasha
teri meri har mulaqat mein

Hothon se, hothon ko
Chumte rehte hai hum har baat mein
Kehti hain fiza jahaan
Meri zameen aasmaan

Jahaan hai tu, meri hansi,
Meri khushi, meri jaaan
Jaane na kahaan woh duniya hai
Jaane na woh hai bhi ya nahin
Jahaan meri zindagi mujhse
Itni khafa nahin…

Jaane na kahaan woh duniya hai
Jaane na woh hai bhi ya nahin
Jahaan meri zindagi mujhse
Itni khafa nahin…
