My advanced tribute to KK ji for his forthcoming birthday.
This is the last song from the miracle trio of Kishore Kumar, Ajoy Das and Pulak Bandhopadhya. KKji sang many songs free of cost for Rajesh Khanna and Satyajit Ray, but this song is the only song recording event when KK ji broke down after singing and asked his secretary to return the advance also. Please listen the original bengali song, regarded as one of the best bengali song of KK ji. I am going for an operation, if I come out of anesthesea, then I shall upload the bengali cover.

Song: Ei toh jeevan (hindi translation), 1987
Music: Ajoy Das.
Lyrics: Pulak Banerjee
Ori singer: Kishore Kumar

Original KKji song:


Yeh hi toh jeevan hingsa, bibad , kam, krodh samvalte
chita mein hi anta hote, hay chita mein hi anta hote
--- This is how life is
--- After managing envy, quarrel, desire, anger
--- It ends in the funeral pyre

Phir vi, kiun dubne chahte ho baivab ke bish mein
sab hi toh mit jana hai mitti mein
--- Still why you immerse in the poison of wealth
--- Everything will go the earth ultimately
Kimti jagamaga kapda vi sath nei jaate
Chita mein hi anta hote
--- Costly bright clothings also will not go with you
--- All ends in the funeral pyre

Pyra yeh jeesam vi ek mutha safed vashma hoga
Sab hi piche chodna hoga
--- This lovely body will become a handfull of ash
--- You have to leave every thing behind
Keya chaha keya mila hisab vi nehi chukte
Chita mein anta hote
--- What you wanted & what you got
--- that account is never settled
--- All ends in the funeral pyre
