7 soul-stirring songs by Gulzar that will melt your heart

The name Gulzar definitely needs no introduction. He is one gem of Bollywood who knows exactly how to weave magic with words and has the power to sweep you off your feet.

Gulzar, who was born as Sampooran Singh Kalra to a family of doodhwaalas in Jhelum, Pakistan, has written a song for emotion that exists in us – from falling in love for the first time to facing betrayal to having an extramarital affair.

On the 82nd birthday of the national award winner, here are 10 songs that prove there’s no one quite like the legendary poet, lyricist, writer and director.

Ek sau solah chaand ki raatein, ek tumhare kaadhe ka til
Geeli mehndi ki khushbu, jhoot moot ke shikwe kuchh
Jhoot moot ke waade bhi sab yaad kara doon !
Mera wo samaan lauta do.

Jis tan ko chhua tune, us tan ko chhupaaoon
Jis man ko laage naina, voh kisko dikhaaoon
O more chandrama, teri chaandni ang jalaaye
Teri oonchi ataari maine pankh liye katwaaye
Dil hoom hoom kare, ghabraaye

Ho raat savere, shaam ya dopehari
Band aankhon me le ke tumhe ungha karenge hum
Takiye chaadar mehake rehte hain
Jo tum gaye
Tumhari khushboo soongha karenge hum

Dhire-dhire, dhire-dhire, dhire jalna
Zindagi ki lau pey jalna
Kaanch ka sapna gal hi na jaaye
Soch-samjh ke aanch rakhna
Dhire jalna, dhire jalna, dhire jalna…

Doston se jhuuthii muuthii duusron ka
Naam leke phir merii baatien karna
Yaara raat se din karna
Lambi judaai terii bada mushkil hai
Chupke se lag ja gale…

Jhuki hui nigaahon mein, kahin mera khayaal tha
Dabi dabi hansi mein ik, haseen saa gulaal tha
Main sochta tha, mera naam gunguna rahi hai woh
Na jaane kyon laga mujhe, ke muskura rahi hai woh
Woh shaam kuchh ajeeb thi

Teri justaju karte rahe
Marte rahe tere ishq mein
Tere rubaru baithe hue
Marte rahe tere ishq mein
Tere rubaru teri justaju
Tere ishq mein haay
Tere ishq mein
