Duniya Jise Kehte hai Jadu ka Khilona hai – Nida Fazli

November 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The program is conceived as a celebration of Nida Fazli’s work and vision; our tribute to a prolific writer who changed the idiom and tone of Urdu poetry.

Nasima and Ruksana will take us through the life and times of Nida Fazli – his philosophy and inspirations, his struggles and successes. The Biography will be interspersed with selected Nazms and Ghazals. These will be sung or recited by Guldasta patrons, Dhanashree, Koshti, Pankaj, Sanjay and Zuben. Behind each Nazm and Ghazal, there is a story to be told.


Padma Shri Nida Fazli, 1938 – 2016, was a writer, poet, songwriter, dialogue writer and journalist of Urdu and Hindi who was fascinated by the lyrical works of Meera, Kabir and Surdas. No wonder his expression is simple and possesses a poetic sweetness like folk or Sant songs.

His foray into Hindi films began with Kamal Amrohi’s ‘Razia Sultan’; he won the Screen Award for his song in the film ‘Sur’.

He wrote the famous couplet: ‘Duniya jise kehte hain jaadu kaa khilona hai, Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai’. Some of his famous film songs include Aa bhi jaa (Sur), Tu is tarah se meri zindagi mein (Aap To Aise Na The) and Hosh waalon ko khabar Kya (Sarfarosh).
