Memories of childhood.....

Love listening to ghazals, but never dare to sing them because of my imperfect diction. And good Urdu pronunciation is an absolute must while singing such beautiful poetry. However, couldn't resist singing this one... that too, as a solo. I have some fantastic co-singers here on YL but I still sang this alone because I wanted to sing the lines of Jagjit Singh ji. I can relate so much to every line in this song that I had to take the plunge. So, friends, please pardon all my flaws. This song takes me back to the days of simple joys and innocent adventures. And then I wonder, when did life become all about finishing projects, meeting deadlines and making that measly bonus! Wish we all had a time-machine to go back to our childhood.

Thank you Naqvi ji, for the correct lyrics. If not for you, I would be singing "peepal ki chhaiyon ki" instead of "peetal ke challon ke". And a huge big thanks to my friend Ravi for mixing this. You are truly awesome!

Lyrics: Sudarshan Fakir
Original singers: Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh
Don't know who composed the music. I think it was Jagjit Ji, but if I am wrong, please let me know and I'll add that here. Thanks everyone for all your support and encouragement
