History of the Tarana
A little history of the beautiful and inspiring 'tarana'.
When Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru visited Aligarh Muslim University, he enquired the students and authorities about their college song. Having got no concrete answer, he expressed his surprise by saying, "It is very strange that a prestigious university as AMU doesn't have its own college song." These remarks put a student to unrest and he spent a restless night on this idea. The very next morning, he was ready with a masterpiece which went on to be reckoned as AMU Tarana after being sung at the Strachey Hall for the first time. What a tribute from a disciple to his Alma Mater!!! What a face saving act!!! That great student was Majaz Lakhnawi - the poet.
The usage of Urdu is impeccable and when its sung in chorus with all the vigour, it can move mountains and create waves in the most placid lakes.
