Nishant Mittal - Haseen Zindagi - Lyrics

Updated: Oct 9, 2023

Haseen Zindagi is a new track by Nishant Mittal. Being released under the label 'Jo Marzi Studios' (sponsored by The Testament), the song welcomes Nishant's longtime collaborator - Abhishek Pawar - on audio production and Rahul Sethi (from Jaza, Sahi) has made the lyrics video.


Haseen Zindagi is available on this website, all streaming platforms and on Youtube (below).



Here’s the story behind the song, as written by Nishant in an Instagram post:


"It was 11:45 PM. I had almost missed my last train home. As I took a seat and gasped for breath while opening my book, I saw a Japanese girl running towards my coach. I thought she'll miss it.


But she didn't. She got in, and the doors closed. Bam! Well, that was close.


The train was mostly empty, and we somehow started to talk. Like a true nerd, I began sharing some obscure facts I had read about Japan.


"Wow! You know so much Japan", she exclaimed. Her English was broken, but she tried expressing herself the best she could (which wasn't always enough, by the way). "How did you manage in India all this while?", I asked. "Bodeee language," she said, moving her hands for extra clarity.


One thing led to another and I asked her if she'd like to deboard at Dwarka Sec 21 Metro Station. That was my stop, of course. I told her that we could drive around the city the whole night, and then I'd drop her at the airport in the morning (her flight was at 7 AM). We could see the best Delhi has to offer. It could be beautiful.


She got really surprised, but then thought about it a lot and said:


"Are you safe man?"

"Six months no crime", I replied.


We laughed and left for what proved to be one of the most beautiful nights ever. It was all straight out of a breathtaking movie that's still waiting to get made somewhere. Perhaps I'll write it? Maybe someday. But as a musician, I've written a song about it. It's called #HaseenZindagi"


Lyrics


उसकी पहली ही झलक में

हो गया इत्तिल्लाह

की अब कुछ अलग तो होगा

टेढ़ा मेढ़ा सिलसिला


रातों की नींदें अब उड़ेंगी

पर आएगा मज़ा

हाँ कुछ अलग तो होगा

ग़ज़ब सा सिलसिला


फिर निकाली हमने गाडी

दिल्ली की सर्द रात

सारी सड़कें भी वीरान


और क्या ही थे नज़ारे

गाड़ी में गाने हमारे

नशीला सा समां


फिर उसने मुझसे पूछा

बोलो क्या है अब ख़याल

ये रात है जवां

और क्या खूबसूरत है चाँद


दिल्ली की सर्द रात

बोलो क्या है अब ख़याल


फिर मैंने देखा उसका ो चेहरा

और आया मुझे कुछ याद

कुछ ही पल पहले कुछ भी नहीं

तनहा ही था सफर मेरा

और अब ये लम्हा

जैसे हो कोई ख्वाब

कितनी हसीं ये ज़िन्दगी है यार


हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी

हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी


यूँ तो हो चूका है एक अरसा

पर यादें अभी भी है साफ़

हाँ कुछ अलग तो हुआ था

दिल्ली की उस सर्द रात

रातों की नींदें भी उड़ीं थी

पर आया था मज़ा

हाँ कुछ अलग तो हुआ था

ग़ज़ब था सिलसिला


और क्या ही थी मेरी तमन्ना

कुछ नहीं

कुछ नहीं थी यार


कभी देखा भी न था ये सपना

बस मिल गया

और हो गया अपना


और अब मई हूँ खुद से पूछता

बोल क्या है अब ख़याल

रहेगा तू अपने ख्यालों में

या होना है फिर से फरार

दिल्ली की है सर्द रात

बोल क्या है अब ख़याल


फिर मैंने देखा तुम्हारा चेहरा

और आया मुझे कुछ याद

कुछ ही पल पहले कुछ भी नहीं

तनहा ही था सफर मेरा

और अब ये लम्हा

जैसे हो कोई ख्वाब

कितनी हसीं ये ज़िन्दगी है यार


हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी

हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी

हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी

हसीं

है ये ज़िन्दगी


हसीं ज़िन्दगी
