The ghazal maestro has the ability to make everyone an addict of his works!! 'Legend Jagjit Singh Ji'. In this era of music where everything is all about rap, vulgar content and copied lyrics; the quality music is somewhere buried...It takes a shovel to dig up some good content.
This song takes us to a point where we want to start life again after coming to a point where everything is not going well. This song has a simple yet deep meaning, not to repeat those same mistakes whether in life or in love. Let's re-start the life meeting those people but not repeating those mistakes...The other half depicts the chaos in one's life where he's often confused or questioned...just wishing he could go back and re-start his life, when everything was good and where Time wasn't playing any foul games and one never drowned in rain of tears. 'All this was possible by remaining mere strangers.'
"Uss mod se shuru karen fir ye zindagi, Har sheh jahan haseen thi; Aur hum tum the Ajnabee..."
