Here is the link to this new song from Club 60 called “Rooh mein..” (it is the second song) . Is it just me or does this singer’s voice and style of singing actually remind you of Jagjit Singh jee too. Miss you Jagjit jee and look forward to more songs from Raju singh!
Rooh mein faasle nahi hote, kaash hum tum mile nahi hote
There would be no distances between the souls, if we had not met
Ek saaya na saath jo deta, do kadam bhi chale nahi hote
Had my shadow not been with me, I would not have been able to take (walk) even two steps
Zor-o-zabr se na haasil kar, dil to shaahi qile nahi hote
(It) cannot be conquered by force, the heart is not a royal palace
Yun achaanak mile kahin hum tum, roz to zalzale nahi hote
Someday all of a sudden we may meet each other, Earthquakes do not happen everyday
Parting from loved ones is always painful, separated by death, distance, or emotions, the soul is always torn to pieces. It takes a lifetime and sometimes even that is not enough, to stitch those pieces together. Because when you have loved and lost, things are never the same. People, friends, relatives stay for a while, say a few comforting words and leave, but the loneliness, the emptiness that comes with the loss lasts forever.
This song describes this emptiness in the life of parents coping with the loss of their child. It starts with the grief that comes with such a loss, that the soul would not have been torn into pieces like this, had they never had the child, that they were so lonely that it was only their shadow that kept them company as they lived on, that they forced themselves to move on, but matters of the heart are not like a kingdom that can be conquered by force. The last line is somewhat hopeful that just like an earthquake that is a very rare and sudden but it still happens, they hope that someday all of a sudden they may meet their lost child again.
I never want to know how it feels to lose a child, but my prayers and wishes are with everyone who has suffered such a loss. Hope you find the strength to move on and start afresh.
