Zinda ki kahaani

I first heard Zinda’s ‘Yeh hain meri kahaani’ when I was traveling in a jam-packed bus (as usual). To top it all, I was on the foot-board, clinging on to dear life with the help of one hand, and balancing the rest of my wordly possessions with the other. At every stop, I had to step down from the bus to make way for the (lucky) passengers getting down at their designated stops. Believe me, it’s not an easy task especially if one is bogged down by a purse, a lunch-dabba and three hefty books….. and ya – myself :).


The only silver lining in the cloud was the speaker blaring FM music, mounted just over the door (and hence my head). And this helped me to keep my spirits (and strength) up. When the first strains of the song began, I immediately recognized the work of Strings. True, they are known for very intense songs. What I sensed different was the music – it was different from their usual style. I forgot that I was in a bus, forgot that I was bogged down by my luggage, forgot that I was surrounded by people from all sides – in short, it was love at first sight…errr note.


The next day, I set about the arduous task of tracing the song. All I knew was that it was sung my Strings. Lady luck smiled on me in the form of Maddy – a friend – through whom I got to know about a song sung by Strings in the film Zinda. Perhaps this was the one I was searching for !! Finally got the MP3 version from Tu (who looked so bugged that I decided to take pity on him and not sing that day :)). Arrey…kya lyrics hain -


Yeh hain meri kahaani

Khaamosh zindagaani

Sannaata keh raha hain

Kyu zulm seh raha hain


Ek daastaan purani

Tanhaayin ki zubaani

Har zakhm khil raha hain

Kuch mujse keh raha hain


Chubte kaatein yaadon ke daaman se chunta hoon

Girti deewaaron ke aanchal mein zinda hoon

Bus yeh meri kahaani

Benishan nishaani

Ek dard beh raha hain

Kuch mujse keh raha hain


Chubte kaatein yaadon ke daaman se chunta hoon

Girti deewaaron ke aanchal mein zinda hoon


Ab naa koi paas hain

Phir bhi ehsaas hain

Siyaahiyon mein uljhi padi

Jeene ki ek aas hain

Yaadon ka jungle yeh dil

Kaaton se jalthal yeh dil


Chubte kaatein yaadon ke daaman se chunta hoon

Girti deewaaron ke aanchal mein zinda hoon


Soulful lyrics…. WOW!!
