The Magic of “Tere Bin”

For all the Hindi music lovers out there, I have something for you to ponder upon and some tracks to add-on to your playlists.

Surprisingly, for ages the phrase ‘Tere Bin’ has been an integral part of most of the melodious and hit songs. Let me take you back to the late 70s when the “Tere bina jiya jaaye na….. ” from the movie Ghar made the buzz.For those who can’t recollect, just read through the lines below :

“Tere bina jiya jaaye na….Tere bina jiya jaaye na
Bin tere tere bin saajana… Saans mein saans aaye na…”

Well, that is just an example, there have been many ‘Tere Bin’ numbers that followed. In the recent times, it has caught ground and take my word if you tune on the radio for a couple of hours you are sure to be humming along one of the many ‘Tere Bin’ songs. I’d list down some recent ones that have apparently made me realize the repetitive phrasal occurrence.

Starting from the mesmerizing “Tere Bina tere bina lagta nahi mera jiya….from Kal Kissne Dekha” to the good old Atif Aslam’s “Tere Bin main yoon kaise jiya, kaise jiya tere bin……..from Bas Ek Pal”, all have definitely topped the chartbusters. I guess the following listing would surely remind you about one of your all-time-favorites :

--> Tere bina beswadi beswadi ratiiyaa O sajnaaa….from Guru

-->Tere Bin Sanu Soneya, Koi Hor Naiyo Labna….by Rabbi Shergill

-->Tere bin nahi lagta dil mera dholna….by the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

For the Himesh Reshammiya fans :

-->Tere bin tere bin dil naiyo lagda……from Aap ka suroor

-->Tere bin chaen na aave……………from Karzzz

Also, if I take a few variants, the list could include :

--> Bin tere kya hai jeena……from Who Lamhe

--> Ke Bin tere jeena nahi, haan bin tere jeena nahi……from Aggar

…….n many more…..

Let the Magic of “Tere Bin” prevail !!!!!!

There seems to have been a lot of thinking gone into that. Apparently, not much of people expect you to take off time from the techie-stuff and start commenting about "Tere Bin". [:P]

Apart from the fun part, it was great to have you write about something which not much of the mass is even able to realize, a trademark of Geetika Vasudeo. However, it also marks the happening of another notion. [;)]

The proximity that we possess towards any common word also happens to reflect a subdued side of our time-bound dominant feelings. As an informative note, you could have included the one you had been thinking all this while to get so deep into "The Magic" that you happened to make such unforeseen discovery. [:)]

By the way, if you could have been a bit more lineant on the two words, you would have had the opportunity to add "Tum Bin Jeeya Jaye Kaise" from the movie "Tum Bin".

Nice work keep writing, it is fun to read from you!

Somehow.. Bin Tere Sanam just struck almost instantly (although a 'variant')

Doing your observation skills 'Globing' justice it seems with the time at disposal [;)]
