Kahin door jab din dhal jaye

Sargam notations for the song : Kahin door jab din dhal jaye
Singer : Mukesh
Lyrics : Yogesh
Music : Salil Chowdhury
Movie : Anand (1971)

This song is very close to my heart. Magical composition by Sali Chowdhury, amzing lyrics by Yogesh and soulful singing of Mukesh.    Just the song that I wish to listen again and again when I am sad.

I had been trying to write the notations for this song from quite some time now.  But I would get stuck after the prelude tune which I would start with Ga for easiness.  But after the prelude I would not get the correct note of the first word “kahin” in the song.  I kept on trying and trying.  And then, today I tried something different.  I started the prelude tune with High Sa on G# flute.  That was it.  After starting the prelude of the song on high sa, I was able to come to the correct note for “kahin” which was Dha.


I really enjoy playing this song on my flute.  I have tried to jot down the prelude, interlude and music pieces in between the song as below.  Hope you will also enjoy this evergreen song on your instruments.
