Hitesh had heard Piyush Mishra sing this song 15 years back and it has stuck with him ever since. Written and composed by Piyush, this song is a letter from Javed who was separated from his lover Husna during the partition. Inspite of having left everything behind and eventually moving on, there is a looming sense of helplessness and grief in the song. Musically Hitesh has tried to recreate that era through interesting acoustic guitar arrangements blended with Indian percussions. In keeping with the upheaval experienced by the lovers, Hitesh also ends the song on a tumultuous high.

The Meaning :-
“The song is about a person who has lived and seen the times of India-Pakistan being one nation…times, when people shared a beautiful equation of warmth and oneness, in spite of its religious diversity. He is telling Husna ( in this context, can mean either the “kind Allah” or his mate across the border) about the longing and the painful wait he is going through, to feel what it is to be on the other side.He asks (with disheartened sarcasm) if the Partition has changed the course of sunrise and the fall of the leaves in autumn on the other side…as it use to be the same before. He misses the ballads of heer-ranjha’s everlasting love, those melodies still haunt him. And the wise words of Bulleh Shah (The Sufi Poet-Saint) still guide him. He asks whether all the faiths (Muslim, Hindu and Sikh) still celebrate each other’s festivals like Eid, Diwali, Holi and Lohri as their own, with the same warmth and enthusiasm…as it was before the Great Divide. Those were the times of no boundaries, no religious divide and no hatred..”

“Lahore ke us pehle jile ke
do pargana mein pahunche ,
Resham gali ke duje kuche ke
chauthe makaan mein pahunche,
Aur kehte hain jisko dooja mulk us
Pakistan mein pahunche,
Likhta hoon khat main hindustan se
pehloo-e-husna mein pahunche

Main to hoon baitha o Husna
meri yaadon puraani mein khoya
Pal pal ko ginta, pal pal ko chunta
beeti kahaani mein khoya
Patte jab jhadte Hindustaan
mein yaadein tumhari ye bole
Hota ujala Hindustan mein
baatein tumhari ye bola
O Husna meri ye to bata do
hota hai aisa kya us gulistan mein,
Rehti ho nanhi kabootar si gum tum jahan

Patte kya jhadte hain Pakistan
mein waise jaise jhadte yahan o Husna
Hota ujala kya waisa hi hai jaise
hota Hindustan mein haan o Husna

Wo Heero ke Ranjhe ke nagmein
mujhko ab tak aa aake satayein
Wo Bulleh Shah ke takriron ke
jheene jheene saaye
Wo id ki eidi , lambi namaazein,
sevaiyyon ke jhalar
Wo diwali ke diye sang
mein baisakhi ke badal
Holi ki wo lakdi jinmein
sang sang aanch lagayi
Lohdi ka wo dhuan jismein
dhadkan hai sulgayi

O Husna meri ye to bata do
lohdi ka dhuan kya ab bhi nikalta hai
jaisa nikalta tha us daur mein wahan
Dhuen mein gulistaan ye barbaad ho raha hai,
ek rang syaah ke ijaad ho raha hai
Heeron ke Ranjho ke nagmein kya ab bhi
sune jaate hain wahan o Husna
Aur rota hai raaton mein Pakistan
kya waise jaise Hindustan o Husna”
