Dil Aaj Shayar Hai

Singer : Kishore Kumar
Lyrics : Neeraj
Music : S D Burman
Movie : Gambler (1971)

Flute scale used : G

What a composition! What a rendition! Such songs can never grow old.  This song is little tricky to play on Bansuri if you are not well versed with playing komal Re and komal Ni together.  If you compromise on those parts where these two notes are to be played in sync, then you will never get the right mood of this song.  So practice playing these two komal swars again and again before attempting to play this song.  But I tell you, once you get a hang of this song, you wont get tired of playing this melodious tune over and over again.  Good luck!
