Today while driving to work, as usual my radio was on. I kept changing the channels in hope to come across a song which i wanted to listen to. While punching the buttons furiously on the radio, my fingers stopped when I heard words "Tu jahan main wahan, sang sang yun chaloon tere jaise tera aasman". I heard the entire antara and sadly that was the end of the song. Somehow those words struck me somewhere. The line was not poetic but it touched me deep inside. I called up the station and asked to speak to the RJ. I badly wanted to know from which movie this song was played so that I could download it when I reached work.

When I listened to this song on my laptop, the entire song, my eyes began to mist. The song is nothing great and neither is the music outstanding. But sometimes a song remains with you because of the situation that you are in right now. My mind has been in a turmoil for some time now as regards to my relationship. We've not had the best of times together, and the cracks are more than visible now. But somehow we are pulling along. At times I feel he's just not there when I need him the most and sometimes when I just want him to listen to me, he offers me a solution which I really dont want. I just want him to listen, There is a line in this song which goes, "Jo uljhan main ho mann, main behlaunga". I just want that. I want him to listen to me, humour me, not give me a solution.
As I listened to this song over and over again , I wanted him to understand me and my turmoil.I want him to understand that I need him. I want him to say he will be there for me, no matter what. I want him to say,
"Sang sang yun chaloon tere jaise tera aasman".

Sometimes you find a song so special when everyone trashes it.The song is something which has deep meaning which a very few can chalk out and gives a pleasent experience.You are one of them
