# The meaning

This song is about the life and life lesson. To live for others, to normalize pain of others, to laugh, to smile with others, to love others as a human. Especially, the people who are depressed with their lives, don’t know how to continue or sustain, how to cop with

Making us realize what we have in our life, what we should do in our life. The human life that we have got is not only to live like animals, it is to make it better for others.

# The Music Quality

Like many of the Raj Kapoor songs, this song has Mukesh’s voice and Shakar Jaikishan’s music, this duo was Raj Kapoor’s favourite. They are known for best music tunes, awesome tunes that people can hear over and over. Even today people hear it on radios, or play on youtube and can’t get tired of listening to it.

I wish we have songs like that today also, in some way not the remix ones. A sad reality is in old days, the sound quality was not so good but the music and tune quality was the best. We can feel that it can’t get any better. And now, it’s the exact opposite. Good sound quality but less musicality, borrowed tunes, or remixes or no thoughts put in the songs at all. Some songs don’t even match up with the music video. I hope you know what I mean. 😉

Some music directors are doing exceptionally well, but some are just following the trend. The trend that is set by pub music, or party music, the misguided teens, and god knows what else.
