Album/movie : Ghazal (1964)
Title : Rang aur noor ki barat
Singer : Mohd. Rafi
Lyrics :Sahir Ludhiyanvi
Music :Madan Mohan

Mohd. Rafi is undisputedly the Golden Voice of Indian Cinema. I have been listening his songs for many years. More I listen more I am moved by his voice. It is something like honey , very smooth, simply heavnly voice.

This ghazal is from the movie Ghazal. Another thing, I listen songs, I love to listen them, but for most of part I have never seen most of the movies, or songs. Instead of I like to let my imagination run wild while listening the songs.

I have not watched this movie nor the song, but I imagine that it is from a seprated lover to his beloved who is departing with someone else.

Rang aur noor ki baarat kise pesh karun,
ye muradon ki hansi raat kise pesh karun.

Maine jazbaat nibhaye hain usulon ki jageh,
aapna aarman piro layan huin phoolon ki jageh,
tere sahere ki ye saugad kise pesh karun.

Yeah mere sher mere aakhri nazrane hain,
mein unhe aapnon mein huin jo aaj se begano mein hain,
be-taaluk si mulakat kise pesh karun.

Surkh jode ki tabo-taab mubarak ho tuje,
teri aankhon naya khwab mubarak ho tuje,
main yeah kwasish ye khayalat kise pesh karun.

Kaun kehta hai ke chahat pe sabhi ka haq hai,
tu jise chahe tera pyar usi ka haq hai,
mujse kah de mein tera haath kise pesh karun.

रंग और नूर कि बारात किसे पेश करूं,
ये मुरादों कि हंसी रात किसे पेश करूं.

मैंने जझबात निभाए हैं उसूलों कि जगह,
आपना आरमान पिरो लायाँ हूँ फूलों कि जगह,
तेरे सहेरे कि ये सौगद किसे पेश करूं.

ये मेरे शेर मेरे आखरी नजराने हैं,
में उन्हें अपनों में हूँ जो आज से बेगानो में हैं,
बे-तालुक सी मुलाक़ात किसे पेश करूं.

सुर्ख जोड़े कि तबो-ताब मुबारक हो तुजे,
तेरी आंखों नया ख्वाब मुबारक हो तुजे,
मैं ये ख्वाहिश ये ख़यालात किसे पेश करूं.

कौन कहता है के चाहत पे सभी का हक है,
तू जिसे चाहे तेरा प्यार उसी का हक है,
मूजसे कह दे में तेरा हाथ किसे पेश करूं.

बे-तालुक/Be-taaluk= which is not attached or conntected anyway;
सुर्ख/Surkh=Red;
ताब/Taab=Luminance, Luster

The shayar concludes the ghazal very touchingly. The pain of the separated is very moving, at the heigt of his helplessness, he hoplessely declares…

Kaun kehta hai ke chahat pe sabhi ka haq hai,
tu jise chahe tera pyar usi ka haq hai.

….and then he surrenders completely, totally…

Mujse kah de mein tera haath kise pesh karun,
ye muradon ki hansi raat kise pesh karun.

Note (22/03/06) – This song is not ghazal as it is believed to be. I too have wrongly described as ghazal.
