I totally agree, he was a genius poet, I feel he had no peer when it came to romantic songs, he was in a class of his own in the shayari world.

Very true. I would like to use an article by R. Vijaykar, shamelessly here

Hasrat Jaipuri: The man and the poet

By Rajiv Vijayakar

Mumbai, 21 Sep It was in 1990 that I was asked to do a story on any music
personality who was BIG in his time and was now past his prime. For no
particular reason, 'Hasrat Jaipuri' was the first name that came to my mind. And
that's how I met the man whose songs I had grown up on.
His drawing room was studded with innumerable awards, honours and mementos.
Among them were two Filmfare trophies (for `Baharon phool barsao’ from Suraj and
`Zindagi ek safar hai suhana’ from Andaz)
and two awards - the Doctorate from
the World University Round-Table and the Josh Mahilabadi award from the Urdu
Conference for his literary work as a poet.
Also the Dr Ambedkar award for a
film song, `Jhanak jhanak tori baaje payaliya’ from Mere Huzoor, which was
written with a blend of Hindi and Brij Bhasha.
Apropos that, the poet told me
later, 'Hindi and Urdu are like two great and inseparable sisters. Even my books
on poetry are in Hindi as well as Urdu.' He later presented me with his then
latest published compilation, "Abshaar-E-Ghazal." Over the next few years, I met
Hasratsaab - he was the first lyricist I ever interviewed - several times and
was struck by his gentle geniality and humility, his practical nature and his
big-heartedness.

Two of our meetings were concerned with features on two of his closest
associates - mentor Raj Kapoor and Mukesh - and though he must have traversed
through painful pathways of his memory to recount the vivid and graphic accounts
of events and episodes he narrated, he kept smiling even through the
pathos-laden stories. Age wasn't on his side, his hearing, sight and general
health were far from perfect, but Hasrat never ever gave excuses to postpone our
meetings, as others are apt to do if they have to talk on someone else.

Hasrat Jaipuri's real name was Iqbal Husain. Till 1939, he lived in hometown
Jaipur where he studied English till 'medium level' and then acquired his
'taalim' in Urdu and Persian from his learned grandfather, Fida Husain. He began
writing verse as late as the age of 20, and around that time, he fell in love
with a neighborhood girl called Radha. “Love knows no mazhab or dharam,” he told
me. “It is not at all necessary that a Muslim boy must fall in love only with a
Muslim girl. My love was silent, but I wrote a poem for her, `Yeh mera prem
patra padh kar, ke tum naaraaz na hona.’” And that 'letter' may never have been
delivered to Radha, but Raj Kapoor was to later deliver it to the world as the
perennial mantra for lovers of all generations in his Sangam (1964).

In Mumbai, Hasrat Jaipuri took the secure job of a bus conductor and satiated
his creative urges by participating in mushairas. The late Prithviraj Kapoor
heard his verse and recommended him to his son Raj Kapoor who was planning a
musical love story with two new composers, Shanker - Jaikishan. "We met at the
canteen of the Royal Opera House where Prithvirajji used to stage his plays, and
Rajji signed me for Barsaat. My first recorded song was "Jiya beqaraar hai"
tuned by Shanker. The second was "Chhod gaye baalam", my first song with
Jaikishan, and my first duet.” This association continued till 1971. “After
Jai's death and the failures of Mera Naam Joker and Kal Aaj Aur Kal, Rajsaab
changed his music team. I was happy that he left us to go to the only other
great team in our films - Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi. But he wanted to
call me back for Prem Rog. That did not work out because someone recommended
Amir Qazalbash to Rajsaab. But I was back with "Sun sahiba sun" which Rajsaab
told me to write to one of his own tunes which he had used as the English song
"I love you" in Sangam. He then called me for three songs for Henna, but after
Rajsaab's death, the music director conspired to scrap them and replace them
with his own lyrics.” This was the only time I found Hasrat Jaipuri bitter:
“They were my last link with Raj Kapoor and RK,” he said, his voice brimming
with a queer mix of anger, grief and resignation. The eternal realist, Hasrat
Jaipuri told me how lucky he was to have married a woman who advised him to
invest his earnings in property. “Today, the rents that come in from my tenants
keep me comfortable so that I am not forced to work for my rozi-roti and my
family. I accept assignments that are offered and don't have to run after films,
music directors and music companies for work. I am very proud of my children
-two sons and a daughter - but the art of poetry is God-gifted and cannot be
learnt, and they have not been gifted with it.”

About 350 films and 2000 recorded songs old, Hasrat Jaipuri's last releases were
Saazish with Jatin-Lalit and Sher Khan (with Bappi Lahiri) last year, and at the
time of his death he was working on a few small films and a book of shaayari. “I
never discriminated between small and big films and composers. I have the
biggest list of music directors among any lyricist - from SJ and Sajjad down to
Anand-Milind, Nadeem-Shravan and Jatin-Lalit,” says the man who was master of
romance even amidst his versatility. And without being arrogant about it, Hasrat
Jaipuri did realize his own worth. 'Humne who naqsh chhod hai that my work will
always be remembered even after I have gone,”he told me once with the honest
precision of a scientist stating a proven fact. And even if you consider only
the crème-de-la-crème of his work, like "Zindagi ek safar hai suhana" (Andaz),
"Teri pyari pyari soorat ko" (Sasural), "Pankh hote to ud aati re" (Sehra),
"Tere khayalon meinhum" (Geet Gaya Pattharon Ne), " Tu kahan yeh bataa" (Tere
Ghar Ke Saamne), "Muhabbat aisi dhadkan hai" (Anarkali), "Tu mere saamne
hai,teri zulfein hai khuli" (Suhagan), "Nain se nain" (Jhanak Jhanak Paayal
Baaje), "Ehsan tera hoga mujh par" (Junglee), "Teri zulfon se" (Jab Pyar Kisise
Hota Hai) and "Tum mujhe yoon bhula na paaoge" (Pagla Kahin Ka) and add a whole
range of songs like "Sayonara sayonara" (Love In Tokyo)," Aao twist karen"
(Bhoot Bungla)." Ajhoon na aaye baalma" (Sanjh AurSavera) and "Duniya
bananewale" (from his friend and closest associate Shailendra's production
Teesri Kasam), one cannot but accept that the maestro was right. As he wrote
once, "Tum mujhe yoon bhula na paaoge/ Jab kabhi bhi sunogegeet mere/ Sang sang
tum bhi gungunaaoge/ Haan, tum mujhe yoon bhula na paaoge."

Adieu, Hasratsaab, your songs will live on forever.

This ghazal brings to mind Ahmed Faraz's famous
ghazal "ranjish hii sahii..."

shole hii sahii aag lagaane ke liye aa
phir tuur ke manzar ko dikhaane ke liye aa

[tuur = a mountain; manzar = view]

ye kis ne kahaa hai merii taqadiir banaa de
aa apane hii haatho.n se miTaane ke liye aa

ai dost mujhe gardish-e-haalaat ne gheraa
tuu zulf kii kamalii me.n chhupaane ke liye aa

[gardish-e-haalaat = ; kamalii = ]

diivaar hai duniyaa ise raaho.n se haTaa de
har rasm muhabbat kii miTaane ke liye aa

[rasm = tradition]

matalab terii aamad se hai daramaa.N se nahii.n
"Hasrat" kii qasam dil hii dukhaane ke liye aa

[aamad = coming; daramaa.N = cure]

What a beautiful way to remember the lyricist. Besides, "Ranjish hi sahi" brings back so many college memories... wub.gif

Another beauty from Suhagan, this one also had the enchanting Lata_Manna duet "Bheegi chandni chaayi bekhudi":

Tu mere saamne hai teri zulphen hain khuli
Tera aanchal hai dhala
Main bhala hosh mein kaise rahoon(2)


Teri aankhen to chalakte hue paimane hain
Aur tere hoth larajte hue maikhane hain
Mere arman isi baat se dewaane hain
Main bhala hosh mein kaise rahoon, kaise rahoon
Tu mere...

Tu jo hasti hai to bijli si chamak jati hai
Teri saanson se gulabo ki mahak aati hai
Tu jo chalti hai to kudrat bhi behek jati hai
Main bhala hosh mein kaise rahoon, kaise rahoon
Tu mere...

I believe Hasrat Saab was a Romantic Poet without being pompous or verbose. He weaved his own romantic feelings into his lyrics, i.e. he was more a subjective poet comparatively. Not to speak of his visiting locations to put some real life into his lyrics. For example, Bedardi Baalma from the film Arzoo was written in the sylvan surroundings of Beautiful Kashmir. The lyrics of Badan pe Sitaare too were written by actualizing the situation.

Shortly after Jaipuri's death in 1999, at the age of eighty-one, composer Naushad said, "Hasratsaheb was a good human being and Urdu poet. He was loved by one-and-all in the film industry and was one of the last pillars of the RK Studios."

From the forties till the late eighties he charmed the film world with his scintillating lyrics in about 200 films.
Rafi Saab has sung at least 225 songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri. Some of my personal favourites are:

DIL KA BHANWAR KARE PUKAAR,
GHAM UTHAANE KE LIYE,
FALSAFA PYAAR KA...
GAR TUM BHULA NA DOGE..
EHSAAN TERA HOGA...
TERI PYAARI PYAARI SURAT KO.
BAHARON PHOOL BARSAO..
JO GUZAR RAHI HAI MUJHPAR
Title song: TUMSE ACHCHA KAUN HAI...
MERI MUHABBAT JAWAAN RAHEGI
EK BUT BANAAOONGA...
TAQDEER KA FASAANA
TU MERE SAAMNE HAI..
TUM MUJHE YUN..
YEH AANSOO MERE DIL KI..
YEH MERA PREM PATRA PADH KAR.

The fact is I love all his lyrics as sung by the Immortal Rafi Saab.

By the way, when I watched Hasrat Sahaab in his TV interview some years ago, I was simply glued to my seat. Such was the irresistable charm of his expressions, his shairees, his personal incidents, his experiences and anecdotes.

NASIR.

One thing more I would like to add, though a small one. I noted that he has the habit of using some persian elements in his songs with a remarkable effect. For example:
O mere Shah-e-Khooban... O meri Jaane Jaanaanan...
Chashme Baddoor,
and.. Nargise Mastaana... which also seems to be a translation of some farsi expression.

NASIR.
