% The song is very much in the same genre as the other Geeta/Kanu combinations
% from "Anubhav", very soft, very melodious and with minimal instruments.
% Geeta sounds great although one does detect a tired quality to her voice, which
% leads me to believe that it is an early 70s song.   The lyrics are Gulzaresque
% in style in that there is little rhyming either in the words or in the rhythm.
% The lyricist however is Kaifi Azmi and Kanu Roy does a marvellous job of 
% maintaining the mood of the song.
