Depiction of a Blind Love: Apni Aankhon Mein Basakar
There is a saying that ‘love makes someone blind’. What if a blind man falls in love? How can love be depicted through his blind eyes? The song ‘Apni Aankhon Mein Basakar‘ illustrates the truth that love has only one constraint- it should be between two devoted souls. If there is a devoted soul to understand the feel of love, you need not have the eyes to see the beauty of it, nor do you need the words to express the feelings of your heart.
How can love be so beautiful for a blind person? The song ‘Apni Aankhon Mein Basakar‘ explains it. The singer wishes to profess his love for his beloved by placing her in his eyes. If the lady in love is contained in his eyes, the effect of the love is automatically absorbed to his heart. He wishes to absorb the beauty of her love through her smile. He visualizes the entire world through the love of his beloved. The world has bestowed him with whole of the happiness through his love. In return to the eternal happiness, he is promising her to absorb all her sorrows to his heart.
Can ‘Apni Aankhon Mein Basakar‘ be considered as a throbbing of a silly soul, stricken by an infatuation? Of course, not. The depth of their love can be grasped by the deepest wish of the singer to make a passionate love towards his beloved.
