This is one of Mohammad Rafi’s finest romantic songs from the movie Dulari (1949) with lyrics of Shakeel Badayuni and music of Naushad.

The melody of this song can be covered well using either F or Bb key. I am using Key D with a capo on the 3rd fret to follow the key F. I have attempted to play the Intro of this song on guitar that uses two strums of D/F# chord followed by an arpeggio style of playing D/F# and F#m6 to cover other instruments. As there are more than two types of percussion instruments used in this song, there is some benefit to use 8th note strumming or finger picking 8th note.
