Mere Mehboob Qayamat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Naam Niklega Tera Hi Lab Se
Jaan Jab Iss Dil-E-Nakam Se Rukhsat Hogi
Mere Mehboob……

Mere Sanam Ke Dar Se Agar
Baad-E-Saba Ho Tera Guzar
Kehna Sitamgar Kuchh Hai Khabar
Tera Naam Liya Jab Tak Bhi Jiya Ae Shama Tera Parwana
Jisse Ab Tak Tujhe Nafrat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Mere Mehboob Qayamat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Mere Mehboob……

Teri Gali Maein Aata Sanam
Nagma Wafa Ka Gaata Sanam
Tujhse Suna Na Jaata Sanam
Phir Aaj Idhar Aaya Hoon Magar Yeh Kehne Maein Deewana
Khatm Bas Aaj Yeh Vehshat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Mere Mehboob…

Meri Tarah Tu Aahen Bhare
Tu Bhi Kisise Pyar Kare
Aur Rahe Voh Tujhse Parey
Toone O Sanam Dhaye Hain Sitam To Yeh Tu Bhool Na Jaana
Ki Na Tujhpe Bhi Inayat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Mere Mehboob Qayamat Hogi
Aaj Rusva Teri Galiyon Mein Mohabbat Hogi
Meri Nazrein To Gila Karti Hain
Tere Dil Ko Bhi Sanam Tujhse Shikayat Hogi
Mere Mehboob…

Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon – Lata Mangeshkar

Music: C. Ramchandra
Lyrics: Kavi Pradeep
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

“Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon” (ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों; “O! my country’s people!” or “O! the people of my country!”) is an Indian patriotic song written in Hindi by Kavi Pradeep and composed by C. Ramchandra, commemorating Indian soldiers who died during the Sino-Indian War. It was famously performed live by Lata Mangeshkar in the presence of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at the Ramlila grounds in New Delhi on Republic Day (26 January) 1963, several months after the end of the war. None of the artists and technicians involved with the song — including singers, musicians, music director, lyricist, recording studio, sound recordist — charged for the song, and later, lyricist Kavi Pradeep pledged the royalty of the song to the ‘War Widows Fund’.

ऐ मेरे वतन् के लोगो! तुम खूब लगा लो नारा !
ये शुभदिन है हम सबका! लहरा लो तिरंगा प्यारा
पर मत भूलो सीमा पर! वीरों ने है प्राण गँवाए!
कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो -२! जो लौट के घर न आए -२
ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगो! ज़रा आँख में भरलो पानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी |प|
जब घायल हुआ हिमालय! खतरे में पड़ी आज़ादी!
जब तक थी साँस लड़े वो! फिर अपनी लाश बिछादी
संगीन पे धर कर माथा! सो गये अमर बलिदानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी |१|
जब देश में थी दीवाली! वो खेल रहे थे होली!
जब हम बैठे थे घरों में! वो झेल रहे थे गोली
थे धन्य जवान वो अपने! थी धन्य वो उनकी जवानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी |२|
कोई सिख कोई जाट मराठा -२! कोई गुरखा कोई मदरासी -२!
सरहद पे मरनेवाला! हर वीर था भारतवासी
जो ख़ून गिरा पर्वत पर! वो ख़ून था हिंदुस्तानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी |३|
थी खून से लथपथ काया! फिर भी बन्दूक उठाके!
दस-दस को एक ने मारा! फिर गिर गये होश गँवा के
जब अन्त समय आया तो! कह गये के अब मरते हैं!
ख़ुश रहना देश के प्यारो -२! अब हम तो सफ़र करते हैं -२
क्या लोग थे वो दीवाने! क्या लोग थे वो अभिमानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी |४|
तुम भूल न जाओ उनको! इसलिये कही ये कहानी!
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी! ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
जय हिन्द। जय हिन्द की सेना -२!
जय हिन्द, जय हिन्द, जय हिन्द||[3]

Sādhana of great masters of Indian classical music

Sādhana is a means of accomplishment. It comes from the Sanskrit word Sādhan, meaning a means, a way, a tool, or something similar by which something can be accomplished. In essence, it is an ego-transcending practice on material, mental, and spiritual planes, in order to lose oneself or immerse oneself totally, towards the accomplishment of some goal or state. The sādhana of an industrialist accomplishes his/her attainment of material wealth. The sādhana of a doctor accomplishes his/her attainment of providing good health to patients. Sādhana involves a life-long commitment, dedication, and discipline. For example, in Ashtāng Yoga, all the eight parts: Yam, Niyam, Aasan, Prānāyām, Pratyāhār, Dhāranā, Dhyān, and Samādhi, are not different but combine together to constitute the sādhana of a yogi to attain a blissful state of Chittavrittinirodh, which is Yoga, according to Maharishi Patanjali. योगश्चितवृत्तिनिरोध:
