Lyrics in Hindi

ऐ दिल-ए-नादान, ऐ दिल-ए-नादान,
आरज़ू क्या है, जुस्तजू क्या है
ऐ दिल-ए-नादान…

हम भटकते हैं, क्यों भटकते हैं, दश्तो-सेहरा में
ऐसा लगता है, मौज प्यासी है, अपने दरिया में
कैसी उलझन है, क्यों ये उलझन है
एक साया सा, रू-बरू क्या है
ऐ दिल-ए-नादान, ऐ दिल-ए-नादान,
आरज़ू क्या है, जुस्तजू क्या है

क्या क़यामत है, क्या मुसीबत है,
कह नहीं सकते, किसका अरमाँ है
ज़िंदगी जैसे, खोयी-खोयी है, हैरां हैरां है
ये ज़मीं चुप है, आसमां चुप है
फिर ये धड़कन सी, चार सू क्या है
ऐ दिल-ए-नादान, ऐ दिल-ए-नादान,

ऐसी राहों में, कितने काँटे हैं,
आरज़ूओं ने, आरज़ूओं ने,
हर किसी दिल को, दर्द बाँटे हैं,
कितने घायल हैं, कितने बिस्मिल हैं,
इस खुदाई में, एक तू क्या है
एक तू क्या है, एक तू क्या है
ऐ दिल-ए-नादान, ऐ दिल-ए-नादान,

Song Trivia

This song is considered as one of the gems of Khayyam-Lata combination.
There is a story as to how Kamal got liking for Khayyam’s music. Once Kamal Amrohi liked a song that he had listened on radio. The song was “Parbaton Ke Pedon Par” and was sung by Mohammad Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Later on he learnt that this song was composed by Khayyam for a movie called Shagoon (1964). However, by the time Razia Sultan went on floors Laxmikant-Pyarelal became the most sought after music director duo. So, Amrohi signed them. But, he did not like one fast paced tune composed by the duo for the film and told them to compose a new tune instead. When Kamal went to duo’s place to listen to their new tune, he was asked to wait as the music directors were in a meeting. Insulted that he was asked to wait by someone so junior to him, Kamal replaced them with Khayyam.
