atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj

Posted on: September 19, 2009


I have posted several songs from “Baiju Baawra” (1951) in this blog. Each one of these songs is immortal, outstanding, a timeless classic.

Here is another song from this movie which is not only immortal, outstanding, a timeless classic etc, it is even more significant than that.

Many people have already commented on the significance of this song “Man tadpat Hari Darshan ko aaj”. This song on its own is a masterclass, an outcome of sheer genius.

While creating this masterclass, the creaters of this song were obviuosly unaware of the significance of this song, which went much further. In 1951, when this song was created, India was a newly independent nation, which was still reeling from massive communal violence that accompanied partition of the country. Communal divide and distrust was very much a reality those days. India had just adopted its constitution and it was resolved that India was going to be a democracy where every citizen, irrespective of his/her background was going to enjoy equal status and rights.

The preamble to the constitution of Indian stated

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly
resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN
SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and
to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and
worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual
and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

Good noble thoughts like the above are the guiding principles for any nation and its citizens. The movie makers of Bollywood have believed in the above mentioned values in as much as there is equality of status and opportunity for artists based entirely on their talent and ability, and they are seen to practice it in their professional as well as in private lives. We have seen actors of different religions playing roles of other religions, and they are seen marrying people irrespective of belonging to different religions and backgrounds. That way, Bollywood movie makers have promoted the cause of national integration by means of their movies, as well as by means of their conduct in their private lives. And no praise could be high enough for that.

And this particular song is a shining example of unity in diversity and religious tolerance that the founding fathers of our constitution would like us to have. This song would have been an immortal song even otherwise. But this inadvertant fact has made this song a shining example for a nation that stood for unity in diversity and religious tolerance. The founding fathers of Indian constitution would have certainly approved of this song. Not just that, this song has received whole hearted approval of the ordinary public as well.

So here is this song, which is one of the great songs of all times in Bollywood movie history for several reasons.

PS- I forgot to talk about the artists themselves. This song is written by Shakeel Badayuni and it is composed by Naushad. The divine voice belongs to the one and only Rafi. The lyrics, the music, and the voice – they are just out of this world.

Bharat Bhooshan is the fortunate actor to lip sync on this song.


Song-Man tadpat hari darshan ko aaj (Baiju Baawra) (1952) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

Hari Om
Hari Om
Hari Om
Hari Om
man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj
man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj
more tum bin bigde sagre kaaj

vinati karat hoon rakhiyo laaj
man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj

tumhre dwaar kaa main hoon jogi
aaa aaa
tumhre dwaar kaa main hoon jogi
hamri or nazar kab hogi
sun more vyaakul man ka baat,
tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj
man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj

bin guru gyaan kahaan se paaun
aaa aaa
bin guru gyaan kahaan se paaun
deejo daan hari gun gaaun
sab guni jan pe tumhraa raaj,
tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj
man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj

murli manohar aas na todo
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
ho o
dukh bhanjan mora saath na chhodo
Hari Om
Hari om
Hari
Hari Om
mohe darshan bhikshaa de do
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
mohe darshan bhikshaa de do
aaj de do aaj,
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om
murli manohar mohan giridhar hari om

You just have to listen to this song with your eyes closed – and drink in Rafi saab’s voice, Shakeel’s lyrics and Naushad saab’s music. That itself is a divine experience.

And then the picturisation – also very good.

This song is just absolutely fantastic. As are the other songs of this movie. I keep saying this – Baiju Bawra scaled heights no movie till then had achieved and I doubt any movie has achieved since.

Fantastic song, awoesome. One of the greatest divine songs of Rafi sahab. Just close your eyes and you will sink in the ocean of great poetry, wonderful music and amazing voice of Rafi sahab.

Rafi and Naushad live on Doordarshan. Last part- murli manohar aas na todo… is not there though.

“PS- I forgot to talk about the artists themselves. This song is written by Shakeel Badayuni and it is composed by Naushad. The divine voice belongs to the one and only Rafi. The lyrics, the music, and the voice – they are just out of this world.”

Atul, I think you want to emphasize that all three creators of this fantastic bhajan were Muslims, Its really commendable.
