% The song is very much in the same genre as the other Geeta/Kanu combinations
% from "Anubhav", very soft, very melodious and with minimal instruments.
% Geeta sounds great although one does detect a tired quality to her voice, which
% leads me to believe that it is an early 70s song. The lyrics are Gulzaresque
% in style in that there is little rhyming either in the words or in the rhythm.
% The lyricist however is Kaifi Azmi and Kanu Roy does a marvellous job of
% maintaining the mood of the song.

aaj kI kaalii ghaTaa, mast-matavaalii ghaTaa
mujhase kahatii hai ki pyaasaa hai koI
kaun pyaasaa hai, mujhe kyaa maaluum

pyaas ke naam se jii Darataa hai
is ilzaam se jii Darataa hai
shauk-e-badanaam se jii Darataa hai
miiThii nazaro.n me.n samaayaa hai koI

kuchh mazaa aane lagaa jiine me.n
jaag uThaa dard koI siine me.n
mere ehasaas ke aaine me.n
ik saayaa nazar aataa hai koI
kisakaa saayaa hai, mujhe kyaa maaluum
aaj kii kaalii ghaTaa ...

zindagii pahale nA thii itanI hasiin
aur agar thii to mujhe yaad nahii.n
yahii afasaanaa nA ban jaaye kahii.n
kuchh nigaaho.n se sunaataa hai koI
kyaa sunaataa hai, mujhe kyA maaluum
aaj kii kaalii ghaTaa ...
