to find you... new vm with an old song










have you heard hemanta mukherjee's "na tum hamein jaano"? a timeless smooth lilt, a melody that without even seeming to want to, gets inside, makes you want to sing. hemanta's voice, intimate, crooning, mesmerised, taking you through a labyrinth of emotions in search of your humdum... your soulmate, your lover, your love... even if you may not have ever met.

a favourite song of mine. from the 1962 film baat ek raat ki. i so wanted to see what asr and kkg would do with it. ever since i've come across them, the silence keeps telling me a tale.

hope you enjoy the vm.

hemant kumar, as he was known in hindi films, and suman kalyanpur sing. lyrics are by majrooh sultanpuri; music by hemant kumar.

na tum hamein jaano, na hum tumhein jaane

neither do you know me, nor i you
magar lagta hai
kuch aisa mera humdum mil gaya
and yet it feels
as though i have found my soulmate
 

yeh mausam yeh raat chup hai

the surroundings and this night are quiet

woh honthon ki baat chup hai

the words on those lips are quiet

khamoshi sunane lagi hai dastaan
the silence has begun to tell a tale

nazar ban gayi hai dil ki zubaan
the gaze speaks the language of the heart
 

mohabbat ke mor pe hum

at the crossing of love

mile sab ko chhorke hum

we met leaving everything behind

dhadakhte dilon ka leke yeh caravaan
on this caravan of beating hearts
chale aaj dono jaane kahaan

the two of us go, who knows where

na tum hamein jaano, na hum tumhein jaane

neither do you know me, nor i you
magar lagta hai 
kuch aisa mera humdum mil gaya
and yet it feels
as though i have found my soulmate
