I will never get over the feeling of awe for old hindi song lyrics. There are such outstanding words written that even today decades later, they feel so warm, fresh and personal.
I have a made playlist of songs called Zindagi Tunes which give an essence of living life and this song tops the list in so many ways. Such an elegant composition by Shankar-Jaikishan ji and such elaborate yet simple description of the concept of “Jeena Isi ka naam hai” by Shailendra ji.
I started to work on Youtube as it became my space to sing all the songs which live rent-free in my head, mind and heart. Today I present my honest attempt at this masterpiece. I look up to this song at times when everything seems hard and nothing seems to work out. The lyrics in combination of the melody have some magical energy which never fails to boost me up!
