Munh ki baat suneh har koi – Who understands the heartache?

28 01 2007

I still remember that slow serial “Neem Ka Ped” on DD National. Though I loved the serial for its sensitivity in portrayal of the life of a bonded labour (Pankaj Kapoor) but the reason I remember it always is its title song “Munh ki Baat” by Jagjeet Singh. I could listen to it the whole day without changing tracks.

It went something like
“Munh ki baat suneh har koi
Dil ke dard ko jaane kaun?
Aawaazon ke baazaaron ki
Khaamoshi pehchaane kaun?”
(Everybody can hear whats spoken
but who can understand the heartache?
Is there someone who can understand the silence of noisy markets?)
P.S. – Forgive me for the poor and semi-literal translation.

I have been listening to this song for over a decade now and its still my favourite. (And I am listening to it as I write.)

Life, journey, aspiration, reflection, everything that makes you and most importantly looking inwards to find yourself. The song is so philosophical and relevant, that it never stops amazing me.

The part that draws me most to this song and that which I feel I relate to would be:
“Woh mera aaeena hai ya
Main uski parchhaee hoon!
Mere hi ghar mein rehta hai
Mujh jaisa hi jaane kaun?”

A word for word translation alone would not do justice to this peice , so let me give you my interpretation as well.
Is he my mirror or am I his shadow.
The “he” here is in essence you and your reflections about yourself.
And I find that the person staying in my own house resembles me but is not the real me.
This goes on to build from the line above and explores/suggests how what you are on the outside is different from what you really are!

Its a must listen for everyone of you who like gazals and philosophy. Let me know if you need a copy!

Nice post. I remember this song. Cool one. I see all the serials/movies of Pankaj Kapoor. He is a damn good actor.

Finally I got some one who has my kind of taste for GHAZALS, its philosophy and softness of thinking which touches your heart, if you have that kind of taste.

Thanks a lot. Can u tell where t get that title song (basically GHAZAL) of Neem Ka Ped? Has any website uploaded it. I even tried to buy tapes/dvd etc. but in US market its hard to get.

I was hunting for 3 title songs:
1- Jungle jungle baat chali hai;
2- Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai;
3- Mukh ki baat sune har koi.

Found 1 and 2 still looking for 3rd.

Thanks a lot in advance again.

It really is a soulful song!
It also featured in the TV series “Heena” on Sony TV.
I made it a point not to miss the casting specifically to listen to this song.
Cheers!

I was basically curious about if you ever thought of changing the layout of your web site? It is well written; I love what you have got to state. But maybe you could add a little more in the way of written content so people might connect to it better. You have got an awful lot of text for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?
