A beautiful Qawwali styled song of Manna Dey I am sharing once again after almost 10 years. Simple song it seems but when came the third line of first antara with Main Teri...Main Teri that Chatti Ka Doodh Yaad Aagaya...LoL...I don't know what its English equivalent would be but it means something like a hard pill to swallow. But I liked this song and wanted to sing no matter what scale...so I dropped it to my comfort zone. To compensate for the dullness in vocals, a bit high compression and raising vocal amplitude at frequency around 2.7KHz helps boosts little bit of tonal energy. I enjoy sharing my experience with the mixing...some thing that changes every time I look into an old project. This mix is how felt about it today. Hope you all enjoy it.

I did changed a word in the third line. I used Dhang instead of Fun in Dilon Ko Jeetne Ka....Jo Tujh Mein Hai, as I felt Fun (Art) may have been more appropriate in the film but for my cover I felt I better use Dhang (which means "Saleeqa" in Hindi-Urdu).
