Singing…Kehna Hi Kya

Singing has been for me a way to unwind after a busy day. I have inherited this trait from my mom, who herself is a fine singer. She used to perform on stage before she got married. While she gave up following the vocation actively years ago, her melodious voice is still one of her best gifts! She and I sometimes enjoy karaoke sessions.

I have also picked up the hobby to croon at times and record the songs to analyze or enjoy later. Here are few lines of a beautiful song that I tried singing some days ago.

Kehna Hi Kya, from the movie Bombay is a song that expresses the feelings of a young girl in love. Starring Arvind Swami and Manisha Koirala, the song has been a favourite with many singers and the sweet innocent rendition has earned a position in the – “1000 Songs Everyone Must Hear” list. To add to the trivia – the song is composed by one of my all-time favourites – A.R. Rahman! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you enjoy the recording –


Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsileArmaan naye aise dil mein khile,
Jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon

Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile,
Kaise mile dil naa jaanoon

Ab kya kare, kya naam le,
Kaise unhe main pukaaroon

Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
