Have always found this song beautiful. A friend of mine used to sing this so well, I used to make her sing this song all the time 🙂 I’ve read that Asha Bhosle was reluctant to sing this song because she thought it was not her style, but see the beauty of it all when all of them agreed on it … !
Mera (my) kuch (a few) samaan (things) translates to “I’ve left behind a few of my things with you,” she says. She was his lover. As he reads more from her letter, he realizes her things (samaan) she left behind are her memories of time & days they were together, she begins to list .. like a couple of days during rhe rains .. Another song that comes to mind is
“Sawan barse tarse dil kyon naa nikale ghar se dil” … I think it has Akshay Khanna in the lead, not sure.
Rain songs these are evoking memories between people, between partners, ex partners, very much in love, lovers .. What is love, you ask,
love is that very private something
two people have between them!
The time they have spent together
Only they can know of,
Only they can recollect …
Only they cherish…
That which brings that smile
Whenever they think of,
say rain ..
The featured pic: is of a memorable day I met Gulzar in the airport, he was travelling to Cochin with his family to celebrate his birthday! The book is a gift from a very dear (blog) friend, without whom my Bangalore memories seem incomplete 😘😍, a suppper hyper Gulzar addict she is. You’ll love her writing, hop on. If she loves you, she’ll cook up some marvels, share her books, give you songs every day to listen to. 😊😄
