atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Mayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiya ki

Posted on: January 13, 2009


Most of the movies where Madan Mohan gave music failed at the box office, but when it comes to their music, music of even these flop movies became popular. In fact, a large number of songs composed by Madan Mohan have gone on to become classics.

Not just the box office, Madan Mohan often found himself deprived of awards too. Filmfare award, which was a coveted award, always eluded him though he came close to it in 1964, only to be pipped for the post.

Madan Mohan got some semblance of recognition when “Dastak”, a 1970 movie ( flop at the box office, of course) got recognised by the Government of India, and Madan Mohan was given the award for best music director. It is to be kept in mind that national awards are for movies in all Indian languages, not just Hindi, so in a way, Madan Mohan was recognised as the best music director in 1970, not only in Bollywood, but in the entire Indian movie industry which also includes movie industries of South India and other places.

Dastak was a movie far ahead of its times and few people ( including movie critics) had the ability to appreciate the movie. So it is to the great credit of the government of India judges that they actually managed to recognise a true genius in this case.

The songs of “Dastak” were indeed outstanding songs, which may not have won popular approval, but then these songs were meant for classes, not for the masses.

The song “mai ri main kaase kahun peer apne jiya ki” is a superb song. The song is sung by Lata. The same song also has a Madan Mohan version. Yes, Madan Mohan too sang this song, and his version is also great to listen to.

Here, I present both the versions. Listen to both the versions. Listening to this song is a divine experience.

Lata version

Lata version

haan
maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri

os nayan ki unke meri lagi ko bujhaaye naa
tan man bhigo de aake aisi ghataa koyi chhaaye naa
mohe bahaa le jaaye aisi lahar koyi aaye naa
os nayan ki unke meri lagi ko bujhaaye naa
padi nadiyaa ke kinaare main pyaasi
maayi ri

pee ki dagar mein baithe mailaa huaa ri meraa aanchraa
mukhdaa hai pheekaa pheekaa nainon mein sohe nahin kaajraa
koyi jo dekhe maiyaa preet kaa waase kahoon maajraa
lat mein padi kaisi birhaa ki maati
maayi ri …

aankhon mein chalte phirte roz mile piyaa baawre
bainyaa ki chhainyaa aake milte nahin kabhi saanvre
dukh ye milan kaa leke kaah kaaroon kahaan jaaun re
paakar bhi nahin unko main paati
maayi ri …
haan
maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri

maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri main kaase kahoon peer apne jiyaa ki
maayi ri

the sheer beauty of the words, music and emotions of this song gives me the goosepimples…every single time I hear it.

It is a classy classic. Madan Mohan, Majrooh and Lata at their very best !

This is one of Lata’s best.
This song is just so beautifully constructed.

both the versions are in a class od there own, they define perfection as they go along

How and from where I should download this great song?

Ye ganaa har baar antar aatmaa ko chhhu jataa he

बहुत ही प्यारा गीत !!

Great Job Done please Keep going for the music lovers God Bless you

very close to my heart

There was a reason why Madan Mohan sang this song. The movie DASTAK was ready except for the filming of this song. But Lata was out of India. Madan Mohan took over the responsibility of singng this song so that it could be filmed on Waheeda. In the following week Lata was back. She sang the original song, and the playback was ‘fitted’ in the film before release.

Madan Mohan’s version with all the three antras :

Thanks Sadanandji for the version with three antras. Dastak CD has only two. Lataji and MM- both versions has it’s own charm/depth but you will be shocked/surprised to know that I enjoy MM’s version more than Lataji.

MM has rendered the song just like a Hindustani classical singer. Since he had composed the song, it was quite natural for him to translate what was conceived by him better than Lata while singing the song.

If I had to pick a song was my favorite among all others, this would be it. It has everything soulful singing, lyrics that touch you to the depth of your heart and music that makes you lose yourself.

THIS IS THE BEST LYRICS OF MAJROOH AND BEST COMPOSITION BY MUSIC DIRECTOR MADAN MOHAN…LISTEN WITH CLOSING EYES..FEEL DIVINITY…SADNESS,..INTRLUDE OF SITAR BEATS.. GAVE NATIONAL AWARDS TO MADAN MOHAN BEST OF BABURAM ISHARA..DARE OF REHANA…IN 1970 PRAVIN MARU…ALLINDIA RADIO
