कारवाँ गुज़र गया, गुबार देखते रहे!
“Karwa Gujar Gaya Gubar Dekhte Rahe “
About 50 years back while we were on our way to attend an NCC camp at Belgaum on the border of Karnatka and Maharashtra from our school (Sainik School Balachadi, Jamnagar in the State of Gujarat) we had to stop at Pune for taking a train. As student to pass our time we went for a movie ‘KANYADAN” having Asha Parekh and Shashi Kapoor in the lead role. However the song from the movie
लिखे जो ख़त तुझे वो तेरी याद में
हजारो रंग के नजारे बन गए
सवेरा जब हुआ, तो फूल बन गए
जो रात आयी तो सितारें बन गए
लिखे जो ख़त तुझे.
(LIKHE JO KHAT TUJHE, TERI YAAD ME,
SAVERA JAB HUA TO PHOOL BAN GAYE
OR RAAT AYI TO SITARE BAN GAYE)
still revereberates in mind of everyone irrespective of age and gender. Only a few days back I came to know that the song was written by the above famous poet and the lyricist.
