  1. No I dont. Yes, the violin and tabla at the start are to die for. The tune is out of this world but aitebar, contextually hasa depth that the other does not. Aitebar is not just a song, its a truth or philosophy of life. The softness, simplicity of the melody goes perfecgly with the beautiful lyrics to portray every individuals yearning for trust, direction and purpose. The depth of the meaning is apparent not only in the muaic and lyrics but also the vocals.
    Aitebar is right at the top, with several others coming in close. Us rah par (I believe his journey of self discovery), Tum door thay (brilliant, brooding and relatable), Musafir, Ye sham (again pure brilliance), Ankhon ko ankhon, Tere liyay (simple yet heart warmingly sweet) and many more.
    There is no matching aitebaar’s relatability and its sheer power ( hidden behind a simple tune) to touch hearts.
