Shauk hai (Guru): The magic of Rahman



I am not sure if you've heard this one before. I was watching the movie Guru when I heard this song in the background and immediately fell in love with it. Featuring minimum instrumentals, Rahman creates magic with the rhythms we've heard earlier in tu bin bataye (RDB) with gentle light piano riffs throughout the song and a soothing female voice.(Soumya Raoh)
Kaash ye zindagi Khel hi khel mein kho gayi hoti
Kaash ye zindagi binkahe binsune so gayi hoti
Bezubaan os ki boliyon ka; Shauk hai
Roshni ka shauk hai, oh shauk hai

The song where a dying Meenu (Vidya Balan) hopes if she could just die peacefully as she yearns for all the little joys of life, urges you to take a step back and enjoy all the simple things in life while they are there.

A quick search tells me that the song did not release with the soundtrack but was later released as a full song in 'A.R.Rahman - Greatest Hits' by Sony-BMG.
