Lamp and Heart

Dear Friends,

Recently Madathil Ji's poetry got published on Boloji.

There was this oft-repeated phrase in his poesy:

“A lamp burnt somewhere
Somewhere a heart”

Reading and editing his
poem, some song beckoned me.

It was Kahin Deep Jaley, Kahin Dil

This was sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Music was given by Hemant Kumar. Lyrics were by Shakeel Badayuni and the song was from the movie -- Bees Saal Baad (1962)




For this song, Lata Mangeshkar won a Filmfare award as the Best Female Playback Singer and Shakeel Badayuni won a Filmfare award for being the Best Lyricist.

Though this is not my favourite song as it has a haunting melody and I've never liked spooky things, be those eerie stories, horror movies or scary songs, but nevertheless, this song has been performed really well, thanks to the singer, lyricist and music director i.e. it is a good product of all their efforts.

See if you like it :-)
