(7) YEH DIL YEH PAAGAL DIL MERA

(BaDe busook se, duniya fareb deti hain)2
With great craftiness, the world deceives us
BaDe khuloos se hum eitbaar karte hain
With great naivete, we go on trusting

(Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhujgaya, awaragi)2
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2 woh kyaa hua, awaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, awaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!

(Kal shab mujhe, be-shakl ki aawaz ne chaunka diya)2
Last night a faceless voice startled me
(Main ne kaha,"Ātu kaun hai?"Ā)2, uss ne kaha, aawaragi
I said, "who are you?"Ā it replied, "Loneliness!"Ā

(Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi)2
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2, woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera

(Ek tuu ke sadiyon se mere humraah bhi, humraaz bhi)2
There you are, for centuries, my fellow and confidant
(Ek main ke tere naam se,)3 aaya shana, aawaragi
Here I am, I had not even heard of you, Loneliness!

Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2, woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera

(Yeh dard kii tanhaayian)2 yeh dasht ka viiran safar,
The loneliness of the pain, the arid crossing of the desert,
(hum log to ukta gayay,)2 apni sunaa, aawaragi
We have grown weary, tell us about yourself, Loneliness!

Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2, woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera

(Ek ajnabee jhaunke ne jab, poochha mere gham ka sabab,)2
An unfamiliar gust of wind asked me the reason for my sorrow
(Sehraa ki bhiigi reyt par)2, main ne likha, aawaragi
On the wet sands of the desert I wrote, Loneliness!

Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2, woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera

(Le, ab to dasht-e-shab ki saarii usratein sone lagii)3
Look, now all the troubles of the desert night have gone to sleep,
(ab jaagana hoga hamay,)2 kab tak bataa, aawaragi
Tell me. please. how much longer must I stay awake? Loneliness!

Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht mein, ek shahar tha)2, woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera

(Kal raat tanhaa chaand ko, dekhaa tha main ne khwaab mein)3
Last night, alone, I saw the moon in my reverie
(Mohsin mujhe, raas aayegi,)2 shayad sadaa, aawaragi
Perhaps it will suit me well forever, this Loneliness!

Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, aawaragi
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!
(Iss dasht meN, ek shahar tha)2 woh kyaa hua, aawaragi
In this desert stood a town, what happened to it? Loneliness!
Yeh dil, yeh paagal dil mera, kyon bhuj gaya, (Aawaragi!)3
This heart, this crazy heart of mine, why did it die? of loneliness!

ALBUM: LIFE STORY

Quote:
In Urdu, "aawaragi" has many meanings - immorality, dissoluteness, irresponsibility, wantonness, etc. But the meaning (not commonly taken) of loneliness, the painful loneliness of a person that does not want to conform, a free spirit, who has been dismissed by the world as a madman, probably best fits the thoughts in this ghazal. His once-spirited heart has withered away by the rejection, the light has gone out. He vows that he cannot live in a world where non-conformity is a sin, and discovers that his only true companion is his loneliness. How beautiful!" end quote.

VIDEO:Ghulam Ali-Yeh Dil Ye Pagal Ye dil Mera

ye dil ye paagal dil meraa kyo.n bujha gayaa aavaaragii
is dasht me.n ik shahar thaa vo kyaa huaa aavaaragii ...

The poet is asking why is the heart so subdued,where is its glitter,its shine?the meaning of saying ,in the heart there was a city,is simply that it was full of people,it loved but now has become desolate.ie.the heart is totally forlorn and like a desert,dead

Dev, I have been keeping quite busy, and it is a collective effort that makes the project what it is, and thanks for your kind wishes. I guess you were missed around here....hope that all is okay at your end.

RAJA HASAN SAGAR:

Our session with Raja Hasan has been quite entertaining.
First when we listened to Amanat, we thought that he should have been the winner, then we listened to Raja Hasan and we think differently,
now lets take a look at ANEEK DHAR:

But before doing so, we would like to wish Raja all the best in the future which look promising.

'I don't want to misuse the fame'

Do you think reality shows really help you to become a good singer?

Reality shows give us a big platform -- to be in the public eye, we have to work hard and try and get a place in the industry. I don't want people to remember me just as winner of SaReGaMaPa Challenge but as a good singer.

Will you continue with your studies?

Yes. I have completed by 12th standard. I was unable to go to college because of this competition. After the world tour, next year I will try to take admission in one of the colleges in Mumbai or Kolkata.

Your thoughts on fame at a young age?

I saw in a career counselling programme that fame at a young age can be dangerous. I will live with my parents and don't want to misuse the fame.

ANEEK DHAR:WINNER 2007 SAREGAMAPA


'I thought Raja would be the winner'


What was going through your mind when they were about to announce the winner's name?

Before the winner was announced, I honestly thought Raja would be the winner as he is a good singer and performer.

What is going through your mind right now?

Six months back too I was in a similar position, when I was declared winner of the Zee Bangla SaReGaMaPa contest.

'I just want to sleep and sleep'

What is tomorrow's morning going to be like for Aneek Dhar?

I just want to sleep and sleep. On the 15th we all are going to perform in Surat for Navratri with Ismail Darbarji. I am going to sing all the hit songs that I sang on the show. My apologies to the audiences of Surat that I cannot dance. I am going to Kolkata after garba for Durga Puja. We are going on world tour next month.

What do you want to say the aspiring kids?

Do riyaz -- practice -- and have faith in god.

'I want to be an established playback singer like Sonu Nigam'

Have you thought about your future plans?

I want to wait till I am 20 and my voice gets fully developed. I want to be an established playback singer like Sonu Nigam. I want to last in the industry for at least 25 years.

Did you think you would win?

I was confident. I strongly believe in god. Whatever I am today is because of his blessings. When I entered this contest I just prayed to god that I get one good chance. The audience was my god in this contest. I give credit to the audience, my parents, Himeshji and friends.

'The audience was my god'

Aneek Dhar was not one of the participants when the SaReGaMaPa Challenge began earlier this year. The winner of Bengali SaReGaMaPa entered this year's contest during a 'Brahamastra' round along with Abhijeet, the winner of the Marathi SaReGaMaPa contest.
The 18-year-old Aneek spoke to Rajul Hegde shortly after he was crowned the winner of SaReGaMaPa Challenge.

How does it feel to be a winner?

I am so happy I don't have words! I am still blank; cannot believe I have won. Winning the award is no joke. This has happened only because of audience support and my hard work. I want the audience to support me in the future too.
