mai.n dil kii dil me.n rakhtaa huu.n

There was a film named "Sanam Teri Kasam" which was released in 2009. No, we are not talking about the "Sanam Teri Kasam" (1982) which had Kamal Hassan and Reena Roy. This one had Saif Ali Khan, Pooja Bhatt and Atul Agnihotri. Its not just the title of the film which is old, the whole film is. It was made in 1995, but wasn't released. It was called "Sambandh" in those days. No, not the 1969 "Sambandh". Anyway, this one had a song sung by Kumar Sanu and Pankaj Udhas, which went:

mai.n dil ki dil me.n rakhtaa huu.n bas ye hii meraa dosh hai
jisme.n jitnaa pyaar hai utnaa vo Kaamosh hai.

Sameer was the lyricist. An older poet had written something like this:

kah rahaa hai josh-e-dariyaa se samandar kaa sukuut
jisme.n jitnaa zarf hai utnaa vo Kaamosh hai

If you know the name of the original poet, please tell us.

Listen to the song!
