Her Story: Contentment! - 1

She was a daughter some time ago. But she has blossomed into a wife and a mother now. Watch her contentment in a beautiful, and very meaningful song from "Basera" (1981). Enjoy Gulzar's magic when he engages in a wordplay with savera and basera. Jahan pe savera ho, basera vahin hai changes to jahan pe basera ho, savera vahin hai in the later part of the song. Indeed, very profound!

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Gulzar
Music: R. D. Burman

  1. Yes indeed, how the perspective changes with age. Wonderful lyrics by Gulzar. Of course RDBurman does justice to the poetry and Lata Mangeshkar does justice to the poetry and music as usual.
