Husna Lyrics – Coke Studio MTV India Season 2 Episode 2

Husna – Coke Studio MTV India Season 2 Episode 2 Song Details

Song Title: Husna (Ae ri)
Singers: Piyush Mishra
Produced By: Hitesh Sonik

Hitesh had heard Piyush Mishra sing this song 15 years back and it has stuck in his head ever since. Written and composed by Piyush, this song is a letter from Javed who was separated from his lover Husna during the partition. The song touches upon the pain of separation from true love and also from one’s country. Inspite of having left everything behind and eventually moving on, there is a looming sense of helplessness and grief in the song. The feeling of longing is elevated when the lyrics reminisce the small joys of life back then, like the celebrations during Lodhi or even the joy of sharing a simple bowl of sevaiyan.

Piyush may not be a professional singer but being the composer of the song, he connects with the song deeply. And this comes through almost magically in his voice as it bellows out the inner chaos and depression. Musically Hitesh has tried to recreate that era through interesting acoustic guitar arrangement blended with Indian percussions. In keeping with the upheaval experienced by the lovers, Hitesh also ends on a tumultuous high.

Hitesh’s father also had to relocate during the partition and though he didn’t suffer personally, he feels his father’s pain and thus associates strongly with the feeling. Such strong storytelling through music and Piyush’s hypnotic voice are the main reasons why Hitesh chose to feature this track.

Husna Lyrics – Coke Studio MTV India Season 2 Episode 2

Title: Husna

Lahore ke uss
Pehle jile ke
Do pargana mein pahunche

Resham gali ki
Dooje kuche ke
Chauthe makaan mein pahunche

Aur kehte hai jisko
Dooja mulk uss
Pakistan mein pahunche

Likhta hun khat mein
Hindustan se
Pehlu e Husna mein pahunche

O Husna

Main to hun baitha
O Husna meri
Yaadon purani mein khoya

Main to hun baitha
O Husna meri
Yaadon purani mein khoya

Pal pal ko ginta
Pal pal ko chunta
Beeti kahani mein khoya
Patte jab jhadte Hindustan mein
Yaadien tumhari ye bolein
Hota ujala, Hindustan mein, batein tumhari ye bolein
O Husnaa meri yeh to batado
Hota hai aisa kya
Uss gulistan mein
Rehti ho nanhee kabutar see gum tum jahaan
O Husna

Patte kya jhadte hain Pakistan mein
Vaise hi jaise jhadte yahaan
O Husna

Hota ujala kya vaisa hi hai
Jaisa hota Hindustan mein haan
O Husna

Woh heeron ke ranjhe
Ke nagmein mujhko
Ab tak aa aake sataien
Woh Bulley Shah ki
Takriro ki, jheene jheene saaye

Woh Id ki iddi
Lambi namazey
Seyvaiyon ki jhaale
Woh Diwali key diye sang mein
Baisakhi ke badal
Holi ki woh lakdi jinmein
Sang sang aanch lagai
Lohdi ka woh dhuan jis mein
Dhadkhan hai sulgai

O Husna meri ye toh batado
Lohdi ka dhuan kya ab bhi nikalta hai
Jaisa nilkalta tha uss daur mein vahaan
O Husna

Dhuan mein gulstan yeh barbaad ho raha hai
Ik rang sya kaala, ejad ho raha hai

Dhuan mein gulstan yeh barbaad ho raha hai
Ik rang sya kaala, ejad ho raha hai

Dhuan mein gulstan yeh barbaad ho raha hai
Ik rang sya kaala, ejad ho raha hai

Ke heeron ke ranjhon ke
Nagmein kya ab bhi
Sune jaate hai haan vahaan
O Husna

Aur rota hai raaton mein
Pakistan kya vaise hi jaise Hindustan
O Husna
