“Maasoom” (1960) was directed by Satyen Bose for Bani Roop Chitra. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Sarosh Irani, Aziz, Honey Irani, Anuva Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Mohan Choti, Chaman Puri, Bhagwan Sinha, Keshto Mukherjee, Master Nissar, Jeevankala, Gautam, Bir Sakuja etc in it.

This movie was made on the topic of children and it had some nice songs in it. One song from the movie, viz. Naani teri morni ko mor le gaye has gone on to become a timeless classic.

This movie itself was a heartwarming movie that won the hearts of the movie goers. The movie was nominated for the best film category. It did not win that award, but won the Filmfare award for best story (for Ruby Sen).

Two songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the third song from the movie. The song is sung by Sudha Malhotra and it is picturised on Sarosh Irani, a young kid who is seen earning an honest living by acting as a coolie. It must be kept in mind that the concepts of political correctness in day to day lives of people had yet to take root. What is depicted in this song will be considered child labour today which has been outlawed now but such concepts were not known there those days. Even otherwise, one cannot say that child labour has been abolished. Children from underprivileged and deprived backgrouns have to labour hard even today, notwithstanding laws against child labour.

This song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi and the lyrics of the song talks of the glory of earning an honest living through one’s own hands instead of resorting to unlawful acts. Our hards are our fate and we would rather earn our living through them than to beg for alms- this is the lesson of self respect that this song conveys.

Robin Bannerji is the music director.

Today (1 may 2014) happens to be Workers’ day or Labour day. Though this day is ordinarily considered a day for workers belonging to organiser labour organisations and excluded unorganised labour and also mangement, I do not think one should take such a narrow view of Workers’ dayin today’s circumstances. Everyone who is engaged in any activity, whether manual or non manual activity is working, and all of them must be considered as workers.

I will not call this song a Workers’ day song. This is an inspiration song and a song with a message that is valid on all days of the year and not just on one particular date of the year. And as mentioned earlier, this song is meant for all individuals, and not just for organised labour.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Ye haath hi apni daulat hain (Maasoom)(1960) Singer-Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Ye haath hi apni daulat hain
ye haath hi apni taakat hain
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hain
ye haath hi apni taakat hain
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hai

ham mehnat karte aaye hain
ham mehnat karte jaayenge
jab tak ye haath salaamat hain
kyun daan ke tukde khaayenge
kyun daan ke tukde khaayenge
ye haath hi apni daulat hain
ye haath hi apni taakat hain
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hain

ham dhanwaanon ke poot nahin
nirdhan Maa Baap ke bachche hain
sab aur sahaare jhoothhe hain
ye do hi sahaare sachche hain
ye do hi sahaare sachche hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hai
ye haath hi apni taakat hai
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hain

kya gam jo hamaare Maat Pitaa
sona chandi na chhod sake
wo achhe dil ke maalik thhe
wo loot ka maal na jod sake
Wo loot ka maal na jod sake
ye haath hi apni daulat hai
ye haath hi apni taakat hai
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hain

bhoolenge na ham is shikshaa ko
chori se mehnat behtar hai
sukh ke liye jillat sahne se
dukh sehne ki aadat behtar hai
dukh sehne ki aadat behtar hai
ye haath hi apni daulat hai
ye haath hi apni taakat hai
kuchh aur to poonji paas nahin
ye haath hi apni kismat hain
ye haath hi apni daulat hain

Devnagari Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
——————————————————–

ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है…

ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है

हम मेहनत करते आये हैं
हम मेहनत करते जायेंगे
जब तक ये हाथ सलामत है
क्यूँ दान के टुकड़े खायेंगे
क्यूँ दान के टुकड़े खायेंगे
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है

हम धनवानों के पूत नहीं
निर्धन माँ बाप के बच्चे हैं
सब और सहारे झूठे हैं
ये दो ही सहारे सच्चे हैं
ये दो ही सहारे सच्चे हैं
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है

क्या गम जो हमारे मात पिता
सोना चांदी न छोड़ सके
वो अच्छे दिल के मालिक थे
वो लूट का माल न जोड़ सके
वो लूट का माल न जोड़ सके
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है

भूलेंगे न हम इस शिक्षा को
चोरी से मेहनत बेहतर है
सुख के लिए जिल्लत सहने से
दुःख सहने की आदत बेहतर है
दुःख सहने की आदत बेहतर है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी ताकत है
कुछ और तो पूंजी पास नहीं
ये हाथ ही अपनी किस्मत है
ये हाथ ही अपनी दौलत है

Avinash,
Quite an appropriate song for today. Thanks

Thanks for your appreciation!

@ Atul ji – thanks for the post with this song !
We can also call this song ‘song of labor/song praising labor
(mehnat)’ and very rightly said by you this song is for every day,
because we have to continue the hard work on every day, and
continuing it with increasing day by day. so this song is inspiring for
more and more hard work and earning an honest living. Thanks !
