Geet # 15 : Dheere Jalna, Dheere Jalna......

To leejiye ji ek lambe break ke baad hazir hai aapka ye host apni is geetmaala ke sath. To meri 15 win paaydaan pe ek baar phir aa rahe hain Sonu Nigam, Gulzar sahab ke is geet seaapko dheere dheere jalane ke liye. Gulzar sahab ki poetry ka visleshan (analysis) kar pana aasan nahin. Par internet pe ek shaksh hai jisne ye kaam bakhoobi kiya hai. Aur wo hain Pavan Jha!
Aaj main is geet ke lyrics pe Jha sahab ki analysis ko aapke saamne rakhna chahoonga. Ise padhne ke baad is geet ko sunein. Waise bhi ye geet kuch aisa hai ki iska asar dheere dheere hi hota hai :)


dheere jalna dheere jalna dheere jalna
zindagi ki lau pe jalna
dheere dheere dheere dheere dheere jalna
zindagi ki lau pe jalna
kaanch ka sapna, gal hi na jaye
soch samajh ke , aanch rakhna

"...."kaanch ka sapna" conveys a few things. One thing is that the dream is fragile in nature and would not last long. Second it would be more painful when it breaks and third it depicts the Ghost itself is a dream and Kaanch ka sapna could mean Ghost who is the mirror image of her husband and may not live long with her. "Gal hi naa jaaye" reflects coming to the terms, the truth That is why Shahrukh the ghost ask to take precautions while making a relationship as it might not last long (soch samajh kar aanch rakhana)

But then Shahrukh the ghost have an objective behind all his disguise act.
Tere roop ki halki dhoop me, do hi pal hain jeene hain
Teri aankh me dekh chuka hoon, jo sapne hain, seene hain.."
Halki dhoop depicts a pale face, ek udaas chehra despite being a newly wed wife. Shahrukh the ghost also understands that his relationship will not last long with her and he has just "Do hi pal". But he has seen the broken dreams in her eyes, which the (dreamstailor) ghost will repair (jo sapne hain, seene hain - sewing the broken dreams) by giving her some good company.
"Aankhon me sapno ki kirachein hain, chubhti hain dheere jalna..
"as the dream is broken in pieces, the pieces hurts a lot....
Raani seems to be undecisive till this point, but finally she finds the ghost's company acceptable and she joins
"socha na tha, zindagi aise phir se milegi jeene ke liye
aankhon ko pyaas lagegi, apne hi aansoo peene ke liye"
She gets a life to live again and also gets her emotions back (aankhein to aansoo nikaal kar sookh chuki hain, all emotions have dried up, and this relationship will get back all the emotions for her)
Aur haan chalte chalte ek baar phir shukriya doston aap sab ki Janmdin (14 Jan) ki shubhkaamnaon ka !

DON Ye post maine Orkut pe padhi thi so link nahin de paya. However Pavan Jha ki site ki link di hai post mein ,wahan bhi ye post khojne pe milegi tumhein. Pavan se achchi analysis gulzar sahab ki poetry ki maine nahin padhi.

Nagu Shukriya nagu ,jaankar khushi huyi ki ye song aapka fav hai.

Puneet are dear credit mera nahin Pavan Jha ka hai jo gulzar ke zabardast fan hain aur unpe ek site chalate hain. Mujhe to jab is song ko pesh karte samay unki behtareen analysis yaad aa gayi so use aap sab tak pahuchane ka man ho aaya :)
