Kal Mila Waqt To Zulfain Teri Suljha Doonga
Aaaj Uljha Hoon Zara Waqt Ke Sulajhne Main

Umar Kat Jati Hai Waqt Ke Sulajhne Main

Magar Jaane De

Apni Aakhon Ke Samunder Main Utar Jaane De
Tera Mujrim Hoon, Mujhe Doub Ke Mar Jaane De
Zakham Kitne Teri Chaahat Se Mile Hain Mujhko
Sonchta Hoon Kahoon Tujhse, Magar Jaane De

Aankh Wo Chahat Jis Mein Dil Ki Zubaan Hoti Hain,
Sachi Chahat To Bejuban Hoti Hain,
Pyar Main Dard Mila To Ghabrana Kaisa,
Dard Se Chahat Aur Jawaa Hoti Hai

DD Urdu: Der Aaye, Durust Aaye

UkN had earlier mentioned about Doordarshan's plan of starting a 24 hour Urdu news channel in India. And finally, the channel has been unveiled.

On the eve of India's 59th independence day, the country's Punjabi/Urdu speaking (as he's a migrant from Pakistan) prime minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, officially announced the launch of DD Urdu, the 24 hour Urdu news channel.

The launching of this channel will definitely give fresh breaths to this beleaguered language, and will also prove to be élan vital for Urdu media which many thought is dying in India.

Urdu ke Naam wishes DD Urdu all the very best.

Doordarshan (India) Launches a New Urdu Channel

A new Urdu channel launched by Doordarshan (the official television channel of the Government of India). Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh launched the new channel on the occasion of the 59th Independence Day of India, August 15, 2006, in New Delhi.



Beginning this Independence Day, an Urdu channel will be offered from Doordarshan's stables. Slated for launch by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday evening, the channel goes on air a good eight-and-a-half months behind schedule.

Keeping a commitment made in Parliament to repeated requests from across the political spectrum for an Urdu channel from the Doordarshan platform, the then Union Information and Broadcasting Minister S. Jaipal Reddy had in June 2005 announced that it would be launched on January 1, 2006. In fact, fund allocation had also been made in the 2005-06 Budget. However, problems in software availability and "general inertia" delayed the launch of the channel.

With the powers that be at Doordarshan deciding that DD-Urdu will be a public service channel, software availability continues to be a problem.

To begin with, DD-Urdu will be on air for seven-and-a-half hours with only two-and-a-half hours of fresh programming in the evening. This will be repeated twice the following day.

The content will be a mixed bag; part entertainment, part news and part information. Daily, the channel will air a news magazine christened `Imroze'. Also, film director Muzaffar Ali has been commissioned to produce a 52-episode programme on Urdu litterateurs.

Besides, the in-house production team has put together a film-based programme, and a cultural round-up has been prepared for the channel by ANI TV. Add to this, B. R. Chopra's serial "Bahadur Shah Zafar" of 1986 vintage. Doordarshan officials said the public broadcaster had floated tenders to acquire more Urdu programmes.

Payal chhankati ayee thi…..
Payal chhankati chali gayee,
Main sindoor leke khada tha,
Mujhe Rakhi pehnake chali gayee.
Saawan ka mausam tha,
Poonam ki raat thi,
Mein uske paas tha,
Woh mere karib thi

Fir woh mere paas aayi,
Aur thodi si ghabraayi,
Jab meine uska haath pakada,
To woh thodi si sharmaayi

Usne kaha aaj hum
Aise bandhan me bandh jaaye,
Jise duniya ki,
Koi taakat na tod paaye,

Meri khushi ka andaaza,
Lagana mushkil tha,
Par iske aage jo hua,
Woh batana bhi mushkil hai

Usne mera haath,
Haatho me lekar kaha,
Yeh to janam janmo,
Ka bandhan hai

Phir mujhe yaad aaya,
Woh Saawan ka mausam,
Woh poonam ki raat,
Yeh to Raksha Bandhan hai!
Na Maa ke pyaar se,
Na Daddy ke maar se,

Na doston ki fatkaar se,
Na ladki ki inkaar se....

Aur na hi chapplon ki bauchar se



Tujh jaise aashiq sudhrenge to,
RAKHI ke hathiyaar se
Khuda kare tujhe khushiyan hazaar mile,
Mujhse bhi achcha yaar mile,

Meri girlfriend tujhe bandhe RAKHI,
Aur ek AUR behan ka pyaar mile...
