Time travel

This song of yesteryear
Shot in black and white
Sung by your favourite actress
Slow, sad and haunting
Full of feeling
The voice, character and mood
Seamlessly weaving
Leaping from childhood
On prime time
Takes you back
To days you can never go back to
In that distant town
Where people are not
Strangers to one another
Know who you are
Do not care what you are.

Do I know what you're saying? All those old songs in Binaca Sangeetmala and Aap ki Pharmayeesh and the occasional movies like Sahib Bibi aur Gulam .... I buy the old movies song CDs now.. Waheeda Rehman, Meena Kumari, Nargis, Nutan. I copy my favorites and make another CDs and watch them....
Waqt ne kiya....
