Sahir Ludhianvi

Sahir Ludhianvi – His Song ‘Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya’…is a popular Ringtone Today!

The highlight of Sahir Ludhianvi‘s lyrics is that besides being hard-hitting and attacking the ills of the society Sahir has been positive in life. Born in a rich family, Sahir watched the atrocity of the riches. His father was a Thakur and treated the common man worse than slaves. His aristocrat father meted a similar ill treatment to his mother. He thrashed her and treated her like Poon Ki Jooti! This infused anger and disgust in Sahir against his father and he took his mother away from the clutches of his cruel father.

The mother-son lived in a small town and his mother had to struggle to make a living. Sahir saw the pains and sorrows of his mother and as he grew his poems were filled with rage and anger towards the upper-class society. In the film Izzat, he poured out his emotions against the upper society in a hard-hitting song  –

Kya Miliye Aise Logon Se; Jinki Fitrat Chupi Rahe

Nakli Chehera Saamne Aaye; Asli Surat Chupi Rahe

Though Sahir‘s life was rough and a bundle of sorrow, pain and obstacles yet he was always positive in his life. Through his songs, he inspired the society to live positively. His song in Dev Anand‘s film Hum DonoMain Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya…is literally a tonic for life for every person who is dejected or disappointed in life. Check out the verse from the song –

Barbadiyon ka sog manana fizool tha;

(It was useless to regret the failures of life)

Barbadiyon ka jashn manata chala gaya

(Instead I celebrated the failures of life)

This song is one of the gleaming samples of Sahir‘s intelligence. Through simple words and effective message Sahir instills confidence in us to dump our failures and instead move ahead. In the next couplet Sahir writes –

Jo mil gaya usi ko muqaddar samajh liya

(Whatever I got, I considered it as my fate)

Jo kho gaya main usko bhulata chala gaya

(Whatever I lost, I forget and kept moving)

The song is so popular among the present generation that many youngsters keep the song as a ringtone in their mobiles to get charge whenever they feel let down! Times Music CEO Adarsh Gupta informed, “There is a huge demand of Old songs and the song Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya…is a hot favorite of the present youngsters.” Similarly, Saregama India`s catalogue music head Chandana Agrawal said, “In the recent Marathi film Duniyadari the Sahir song – Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya…has been used and ever since the success of the film the song has become a huge hit.”

Ram Chandra, a college student believes old music is more sensible and soothing to the ears. He said, “Whenever I am dejected or I want to rejuvenate, I put on Sahir‘s song Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya… And not just me, many of my friends who are more or less of my age also like this song and have kept it as their ring tone.”
