A song that probably narrates an entire story. Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahi is a song that almost celebrates life. The feeling of falling for that one true love only to lose it later on, the song deftly captures each moment beautifully. Love as an emotion has many shades and many byproducts, one of them being the melancholy of separation. And finally acceptance, and the song perfectly highlights that.
Raaste mein jo milo toh,
Haath milaane ruk jaana.
The song further narrates a ray of hope, the hope of meeting your true love one last time, getting an opportunity to share and relive those tender moments. Yet, it comes with a compromise too and you are willing to still look beyond it, for that one glimpse which would nourish your soul even if it is for just a few moments. And this is where the acceptance sets in. As the lines further go…
Saath mein koi ho tumhaare,
Door se hi tum muskaana.
On a moonless lonely night, this song reminds me of that waft of perfume or the tender touch with our fingers firmly clasped to one another. Yes, I have moved on but it is the tingling feeling inside my heart that continues to live on with time. This while I continue to romanticise the feeling of being in love, perhaps with you again. As the lines go…
Maana ke Hum Yaar Nahi,
Lo tai hai ki pyaar nahi,
Phir bhi nazrein na tum milana,
Dil ka aitbaar nahi.
