% It was August, 1942. The "Quit India" movement had gath-
% ered momemtum. Protestors, all over the country, came out in
% large numbers and the thunderous cry of 'quit india' echoed
% across the nation. The odd response of the British became in-
% creasingly brutal and what followed was savage repression leading
% to unprecedented violence, lathi charges, and ruthless firing on
% unarmed protestors. The country was quickly engulfed in flames
% and Kasauni, a small town in the Himalayan foothills was no ex-
% ception. It was in the midst of this savage turbulence that Nandu
% (Anil) and Rajjo (Manisha) met for the first time and fell in
% love.. a love that changed their lives forever.. a love that was
% destined to be consumed by the ravaging fires of passion and li-
% beration that swept the land. Because, this was also the fateful
% time when a group of dedicated revolutionaries, led by the coura-
% geous and fiery Shubanker (Jackie), brought the spirit of freedom
% struggle to Kasauni in prusuit of their sworn mission. Individu-
% als no longer mattered, all that mattered was commitment to the
% cause. And so began an immortal sage.. of people, of freedom, of
% duty, of conflict, of scarifice.. and of LOVE.

ho o ... ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa
ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa, jaise
khilataa gulaab, jaise
shaayar kaa khvaab, jaise
ujalii kiran, jaise
ban me.n hiran, jaise
chaa.Ndanii raat, jaise
naramii baat, jaise
mandir me.n ho ek jalataa diyaa, ho!
o... ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa!

ho, ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa
ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa, jaise
subah kaa ruup, jaise
saradii kii dhuup, jaise
vINaa kii taan, jaise
ra.ngo.n kii jaan, jaise
balakhaaye.n bel, jaise
laharo.n kaa khel, jaise
khushabuu liye aaye Tha.nDii havaa, ho!
o... ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa!

ho, ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa
ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa, jaise
naachataa mor, jaise
resham kii Dor, jaise
pariyo.n kaa raag, jaise
sandal kii aag, jaise
solah shrR^i.ngaar, jaise
ras kii phuhaar, jaise
aahistaa aahistaa ba.Dhataa nashaa, ho!
o... ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa!
ek la.Dakii ko dekhaa to aisaa lagaa!
