My friend suku’s post made me think of Sanjeev Kumar and his rare songs. Incidentally his birth anniversary fell this day. A rare gem of an actor who performed in all kinds of roles and had gone thru many lifetimes in just one lifetime – That’s what I fele about him whenever I think of him. Unfortunately he had died at a very early age due congenital heart disease.

There are so many hit songs of this great actor that it was hard to pick. However, I believe this song comes close in capturing the essence of different roles this actor had portrayed in his short life. From the 1966 Hindi film Badal this song was Sung by Manna Dey. Music composed by Usha Khanna and Lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar. The song is in two parts in the movie. This video has both parts stitched together.



Lyrics in Romanized Hindi:

Khudgrzj Duniya Mein Yeh, Insan Ki Pehchan Hai
Jo Parayi Aag Mein Jal Jaale, Woh Insaan Hai

Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye
Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye

Nakamiyo Se Ghabra Ke, Kyon Apni Aas Khote Ho
Nakamiyo Se Ghabra Ke, Kyon Apni Aas Khote Ho
Main Humsafar Tumhara Hoon, Kyon Tum Uddas Hote Ho
Hanste Raho Hasane Ke Liye, Hanste Raho Hasane Ke Liye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye

Apni Khudi Ko Jo Samjha, Usne Khuda Ko Pehchana
Apni Khudi Ko Jo Samjha, Usne Khuda Ko Pehchana
Aazaad Fitrate Inasaan, Andaaz Kyon Gulamana
Sar Ye Nahi Jhukane Ke Liye, Sar Ye Nahi Jhukane Ke Liye,
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye

Bazaar Se Zamane Ke, Kuchh Bhi Na Ham Kharidenge
Bazaar Se Zamane Ke, Kuchh Bhi Na Ham Kharidenge
Ha, Bechkar Khushi Apni, Logo Ke Gham Kharidenge
Bujhte Diye Jalane Ke Liye, Bujhte Diye Jalane Ke Liye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye

Himmat Buland Hai Apni Patthar Si Jaan Rakhte Hain
Himmat Buland Hai Apni Patthar Si Jaan Rakhte Hain
Kadmo Tale Zameen Toh Kya, Hum Aasman Rakhte Hain
Girte Huon Ko Uthhane Ke Liye, Girte Huon Ko Uthhane Ke Liye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye

Chal Aaftaab Lekar Chal, Chal Mehtaab Lekar Chal
Chal Aaftaab Lekar Chal, Chal Mehtaab Lekar Chal
Tu Apni Ek Thhokar Mein Sau Inqalaab Lekar Chal
Zulm Aur Sitam Mitane Ke Liye, Zulm Aur Sitam Mitane Ke Liye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye

Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye
Tu Ji Yeh Dil Zamane Ke Liye, Apne Liye Jiye Toh Kya Jiye
