'Naseem-e-soobh'...A Nazm By My Father Professor Shahryar

'Naseem-e-soobh ro rahi hai wadiye-i-gulab mein' was a Nazm written by my father Professor Shahryar on the death of Indian President Zakir Hussain sahab. Abba had a lot of respect for Zakir sahab. This Nazm is not part of any of Abba's poetry collections. Abba and Ammi (Professor Najma Mahmood) had created a Dhun for this Nazm and they used to sing it together. I have retained the dhun created by them in the following lines

Naseem e soobh ro rahi hai wadiye-i-gulaab mein
Lahoo ki ek boond bhi nahin hai aftaab mein

The remaining lines have been musically composed by my friend Navneet Kedar who
has also done beautiful music arrangements. I have sung it. I hope you like it.

Naseem e soobh ro rahi hai wadiye-i-gulaab mein 
Lahoo ki ek boond bhi nahin hai aftaab mein 
Safed-o-surq phool aasuon mein bheegne lage
Faza mein titliyon ki hichkiyon ke shankh baj utthe
Udaas nikhaton ki reshmi zubaanon par
Khuda ka naam hai 
Hayaat baab-e-marg se guzarke jaavedaan hui 
Hisaar-e-jism se nikal ke rooh bakeraan hui
Safar ka laazawaal nassha 
Aakhirash utar gaya
Safeer-e-shahr-e-zindagi ne dhoondli hai
Ek jagah khayaam ki
Taveel ho rahi hai 
Sarhaden sukoot-e-shaam ki
Farishte aasmaan se durood padhne aaye hain 
Khuda ki rahmaton ka 
Aetraaf tum pe farz hai
Tavaaf-e-khabr-e-Zakir-e-Hussain 
Tum pe kharz hai   

Naseem e soobh ro rahi hai wadiye-i-gulaab mein 
Lahoo ki ek boond bhi nahin hai aftaab mein

  14. When I heard this song 1st time, I liked it...I visited this blog to hear this song again....Faridoon sir to chuppe rustam nikle, in the sense that he had a hidden singing quality in him too...is gaane me ek ajab sa thehrav hai aur haunt feel background chorus is great, bollywood misses such songs nowadays n they should be re-ignited again...great job.
