Ghazal: Chandi Jaisa Rang Tera

I had vaguely remembered hearing this ghazal some time in the past and it seemed good. It must have been from a very forgettable movie, but the song stuck, and then Pankaj Udhas came out with another video for this song, and that was a very good video. Shot on the London tube and rail network, it had the sung in a situation where a young shy boy sees a girl and falls for her. She does not even look at him, till one day he finds himself sitting next to her, wondering how to make conversation, when she offers some prasad, and they get talking. I really loved the ghazal as well as the video.


Lyrics:

Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal

Jis reste se tu gujre, voh phoolon se bhar jaye
Jis reste se tu gujre, voh phoolon se bhar jaye
Tere pair ki komal aahat sote bhaag jagaye
Jo patthar choo le gori tu voh heera ban jaye
Tu jisko mil jaye voh, tu jisko mil jaye
Vo ho jaye malamal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal

Jo be-rang ho us par kya kya rang jamate log
Jo be-rang ho us par kya kya rang jamate log
Tu naadaan na jane kaise roop churate log
Nazaren bhar bhar dekhen tujhko aate jaate log
Chail chabeeli rani thoda, Chail chabeeli rani thoda
ghoonghat aur nikaal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal

Dhanak ghata kaliyan aur tare sub hain tere roop
Dhanak ghata kaliyan aur tare sub hain tera roop
Ghazalen hon ya geet hon mere sub mein tera roop
Yunhi chamakti rahe hamesha tere husn ki dhoop
Tujhe nazar na lage kisi ki
Tujhe nazar na lage kisi ki
Jiye hazaron saal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Chandi jaisa rang hai tera, sone jaise baal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
Ek tuhi dhanvaan hai gori, baaki sub kangaal
