One for the day…..

I am sure today will be celebrated with countless paeans to friendship being shared to commemorate the day.  The first Sunday of this month acts as a notional reminder of the value of human bonding.

It was only fitting that the song of the day would be a tribute to friendship.

The movie Rockford was produced by Padmini Kolhapure and was based on a story, screenplay by Nagesh Kukunoor who directed it as well. The movie dealt with life of a teenaged boy in a boarding  school and his experiences there. The distraught boy bonds well with the PT Instructor (also acted by Nagesh Kukunoor) . The movie has a teenage romance thrown in for good measure as well as a wholly unnecessary diversion of a girl being forced to make an allegation of assault against the PT instructor by the Top Dog of the school (somewhat like in Vinod Khanna’s Imtihaan) The music is by a creative trio of  Shankar Ehsaan Loy. This song is by KK who sadly passed away way too young recently, with a bit of backing vocals by Leslie Lewis. The lyrics are by Mehboob.

यारों दोस्ती बड़ी ही हसीन है
ये ना हो तो क्या फिर, बोलो ये ज़िन्दगी है
कोई तो हो राज़दार
बेगरज तेरा हो यार
कोई तो हो राज़दार

यारों मोहब्बत ही तो बन्दगी है
ये ना हो तो क्या फिर, बोलो ये ज़िन्दगी है
कोई तो दिलबर हो यार
जिसको तुझसे हो प्यार
कोई तो दिलबर हो यार

तेरी हर एक, बुराई पे, डांटे वो दोस्त
गम की हो धूप, तो साया बने, तेरा वो दोस्त
नाचे भी वो तेरी ख़ुशी में
अरे यारों दोस्ती…

तनमन करे, तुझपे फ़िदा, महबूब वो
पलकों पे जो, रखे तुझे, महबूब वो
जिसकी वफ़ा, तेरे लिए हो
अरे यारों मोहब्बत…

Here’s to you, all my friends. Have a wonderful day today and join me at 1120 am tomorrow for the next program on AIR Delhi FM Gold. I’ll be on that station on 8th, 15th and 22nd August.
