Of sleeping roads...


"So gaya yeh jahan ...
so gaya aasma.
So gayi ...
hai saari manzile
O saari manzile ...
So gaya hai rasta.
So gaya yeh jahan ...
so gaya aasma."

One of the few hindi songs i love, and this one for its lyrics, nothing else;
( i think execution could have definitely been better, instead of bubble-gum-pop and the jingles in the background, more poignant voices,bass, and stronger tones.
such sheer beauty in the words
completely and hideously underplayed by the song)


"raat aayi tho woh jinke ghar the
woh ghar ko gaye
so gaye ...
raat aayi tho hum jaise awaare
phir nikle raahon mein
aaur kho gaye...
...
So gaya hai rasta."
