Journey unplugged....


We all travel from one place to other and this act of moving from one place to other is called journey. And  if you observe, you will find that different people like different act while they travel. Some prefer  reading books or magazines.... Some of them like indulging in conversation with their co-passengers.... Some simply snooze....etc, etc..... But off late I have found that there are plenty who like to listen music during their journey. One of the reason may be that  "variety of electronic gadgets are available today at affordable price and they are easy to carry too".....

Though in older days also when these gadgets weren't there, people used to carry their battery operated radio-transistors. But now because of easy availability of these tiny gadgets, you can find more n more people with an earphone plugged into ear and listening their favorite songs even if they are riding bi-cycles or walking besides the road.

Music, as we all know is the soul of Indian culture and Hindi songs are the important part of Indian music...... And undoubtedly Hindi movies provide us immense variety of songs for every situation n mood in our life, same way there are plenty of Hindi songs based on the philosophy of journey itself.

Well, no one can deny with the fact that  "Zindagi ek Safar hai Suhaana, Yahaan Kal Kyaa Ho Kisne Jaana"..... and rightly so, as they say "Life is a beautiful journey filled with uncertainties......" 

There are people who simply believe in the philosophy of "Nadiyaa Chale - Chale re Dhaara, Tujhko Chalnaa Hoga".... and these people always try to sail through all the difficulties they have in their way and even if they are left alone during their journey they keep on moving and say..... "Chal Akela - Chal Akela, Tera Melaa Peeche Choota Saathi Chal Akela"....

Similarly there are times when we are not very sure about our destination or even if we know destination then sometimes we are not so sure about reaching there and then we like singing "Hazaar Rahein Mud K Dekhi, Kahin Se Koi Sadaa Na Aayi"....

As we know, in this journey of life, people come n go....and each of them leave behind their memories for their loved ones, as this song says.... "Aadmi Musaafir Hai - Aata Hai Jaata Hai"....

Remember this song from the movie Imtihaan "Ruk Jaana Nahin Tu kahin Haar Ke"...... you will find this an inspiring one, specially if at any point of your journey, you just start feeling like tired or depressed..... 

On the other hand when your journey is a pleasant one(i wish it remain always) and you are enjoying it like anything then you can very well tune into "Suhaana Safar Aur Yeh Mausam Haseen"....

And the list is too long.... endless infact...... So, its not possible for me to include those many wonderful songs here on this journey theme. Therefore I have included only some of them according to my subjective choice...... But as you know, the mode of journey can be any....even by foot.... and its the spirit of travelling which is important.

So friends, this weekend when you go on a long drive, just don't forget to carry your i-pad or whichever gadget you like, just load it with all those fabulous songs subjective to your choice and enjoy every moment of your journey. 
Have a melodious weekend.


PS: by clicking on the songs you can watch its video.

  2. Even we like listening to music while travelling.Nothing can beat the evergreen old Hindi songs, one can never get tired of listening to them. Now a days there very few songs that stand out and stay in our memory. Poetry is still there, romance is still there and musiic too is still there , but a there no good poets, musicians nor good romance.
    Thank God at least the old songs are still accessble.
    Thanks for sharing so many good songs.

  5. I couldn't think a journey without listening to songs... like Hindi there are many songs in Tamil and esp. The compositions of maestro Ilaiyaraja are a great companion while traveling and he has songs for every moment and emotion.

    I usually load my favorite songs in pen drive or Walkman before hitting the road. Will check these songs leisurely later :)

  12. Irfanuddin,

    Read 2 posts now. Thanks for such lovely photographs of fancy dress. Listening to music is the good way to pass time, specially in journey. The songs took me back by so many years of fond memories. A caution here, one should not get too engrossed in it with ear plugs blocking other sounds as there have been number of young persons coming under train while crossing tracks or even at roadside too.

    Take care

    1. yes Sir, i totally agree with you about taking precaution while driving or crossing the tracks as you mentioned, no matter how much pleasure these wonderful songs give but one must be careful about himself during the journey.

      Thank you.

  13. I too am a music buff, an ardent fan of old film songs and ghazals. The songs listed by you are my favorite also , though you have picked up only the theme of safar or journey. I started my journey from listening to a radio receiver set long back.
    Nice post !

  14. I read.

    I read because I travel by an underground metro, and the FM on my mobile doesnt work there. And I dont have an i-pod :(.

    I dont drive because I cannot read then.

    So I read.

    Am I sounding crazy?

  19. I am not familiar with few songs you mentioned, because I started following Bolly music only from the 90's. The first song I listened to was 'Pehala Nasha' and it was first love for me! I love Hindi songs but some regional language songs are equally good.
