I love ghazals. Not because they used to resonate during heart break, and I have had my fair share. But ghazals have been my company during travel, while reading books, while running (yes!), while cooking and just about everything else I like to do. I had cried when Jagjit Singh had passed away. Yes, I am that person. I can spend evenings listening to ghazals. Lyrics so beautiful, most of my favorites run in a loop.
This week, have been hooked to Ranjish hi sahi. A gem from Mehdi Hassan. While I will leave you to your interpretations of the song, my takeaway are these lines –
जैसे तुम्हें आते हैं ना आने के बहाने
ऐसे ही किसी रोज़ न जाने के लिए आ
रंजिश ही सही…
