ज़िंदगी ख़्वाब है था हमें भी पता
पर हमें ज़िंदगी से बहुत प्यार था
सुख भी थे, दुख भी थे दिल को घेरे हुए
आ गई थी शिकायत लबों तक मगर
चल पड़े दर्द पीकर तो चलते रहे
चंद दिन था बसेरा हमारा यहाँ
zi.ndagii Kvaab hai thaa hame.n bhii pataa
par hame.n zi.ndagii se bahut pyaar thaa
sukh bhii the, dukh bhii the dil ko ghere hu_e
aa ga_ii thii shikaayat labo.n tak magar
chal pa.De dard piikar to chalate rahe
cha.nd din thaa baseraa hamaaraa yahaa.N

It did not escape my notice that you posted this song on Shailendra’s anniversary.
This song is an example of why Mukesh – and no singer more than him, in Hindi films – is known as the ‘king of pathos’.
Thanks for posting this, the other songs of the film and your off-line expert commentary on all of them.
By the way, here is a quiz:
When all these men are out for their evening stroll, somewhere up there – Anil Biswas, Shankar, Jaikishan, S. D. Burman, Salil Chaudhary, C. Ramchandra, Hemant Kumar, R.D. Burman, Roshan and many others, including of course their common denominator, the immortal Shailendra – they are all saying:
‘Oh, should we be so lucky that there is someone on our former abode who is keeping alive our legacy in such a magnificent and detailed fashion, a labor of love if ever there was one’.
Who is this person they are referring to, I wonder !
I am grateful to the person who has provided this wonderful evergreen song by the all time greats.
