A special leak from episode 2 of Coke Studio @ MTV S2! Watch it here even before it appears on TV!
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.
