Singing unintentionally for some days now. Eid and being away from home, has just made it more meaningful. Someone told me it was written in rhyme of Ghalib. No wonder it is so amazing, a master (Faiz) writing in style of master (Ghalib).
How wonderfully it captures the emotions when it says “Agar Shumar Hota”, with all the things in the world recognition is one desired by everyone. Desire to be recognized as friend, successful person or just as a person sitting on the table. Recognition that we exist.
Wonderfully sung by Tina Sani, should seek it on YouTube.
