(Thanks to our beloved Shri.Raja ji for his kind support and guidance to me in completion and presentation of this article)

We know Sahir Ludhianvi as a poet of the highest quality, a romantic at heart, and a rebel.

But for me, he was much more than this.

For me he was a truly secular individual, a humanitarian, and a motivational philosopher.

There were many aspects to Sahir’s poetry and writing. But, today, for the purposes of this article, I would like to dwell upon just one of them. The ‘bhajans’ that he wrote.

Sahir has given us many memorable, or perhaps I should say ‘immortal’, bhajans which lead us to the world of the sublime, to introspect within ourselves, to be inspired and to be motivated in this journey of life. When one looks at these bhajans and the conviction in them, it becomes clear that they come straight from Sahir’s heart.

The Gramophone Co of India Ltd (HMV) had brought out in 1985 a beautiful compilation of ‘bhajans’ from this great poet.

Titled as ‘Bhajans from Films – Poet SAHIR LUDHIYANVI’, this audio cassette (which I purchased on 28.11.1988 – I had this habit of marking my signature and date on the cassettes which I used to purchase regularly for my collection) has, in all, a total of ‘twelve’ gems.

Out of these twelve, so far ten have been discussed on our blog. I am reproducing herewith a few lines from each write up/comments which talks about the song or about Sahir (by Atul ji and our regular contributors and few comments also) which accompany each respective post.

Here they are (with the links):

1) Allah tero naam ishwar tero naam
“There are many people who may think that this is a non-filmy prayer. That is how
Well-known this song is.”
‘Allah tero naam, ishwar tero naam’ this poignant song is written by Sahir
Ludhianvi and its music is composed by Jaidev.This song is easily a timeless classic.
(By Atul ji)

2) Prabhu tero naam

Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist and Jaidev is the music director, as mentioned earlier
this song is an outstanding song, and one can listen to this song several times,
without feeling bored. (By Atul ji)
Both the above i.e. (1) & (2) from the Navketan’s film ‘Hum Dono’.

3) Tora man darpan kehlaaye from the film ‘Kaajal’.

This song is one of the most well-known bhajans created by Bollywood. Considering that Ravi was the music director that was only to be expected.”
(By Atul ji)
“Our mind is like a mirror it shows us good and bad experiences that we have been through what is the meaning of Karma?
It means my karm whatever I do with my hands or mind or body is karma. So mind has a hard disk which stores everything without being biased for mind there is nothing good or nothing bad it will keep storing and it has the ability to bring back those memories at random access wgenevr it wants,
That’s why it is called darpan a mirror …..
If you like to understand further please respond I shall revert soon” (By Girish)

4) Aan milo aan milo shyaam saanwre from ‘Devdas’
The words by Sahir Ludhianvi are simply wonderful. To imagine that a shayar who has given us some great shaayaris and qawwalis could write such a beautiful song using colloquial words is such a pleasant surprise. What a gem of a song this is. (By Atul ji)

5) Aaj sajan mohe ang lagaalo from ‘Pyaasa’
“The lyrics of this song are just amazing. It is written in chaste Hindi, and sound very nice to the ears. It is difficult to imagine that this song is written not by some noted Hindi lyricist but by one who was renowned as a shayar. Yes, this song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi, and here he shows that he could write very nice sanskritised lyrics too, if the situation so demanded.
It was not a fluke either. Sahir Ludhianvi himself had written another great sanskritised song in “Devdas”, and that too was for the same music director. That song was “aan milo aan milo Shyam saanware”. This shows what great literary skills Sahir Ludhianvi possessed. This also shows the importance that lyrics were accorded by music directors. No wonder these songs have gone on to become timeless classics. (By Atul ji)

6) Kaam krodh aur lobh ka maara jagat na aaya raas from ‘Bahurani’
This poignant song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Sahir Ludhianvi has come up with simple and effective lyrics (by Atul ji)

7) Ganga tera paani amrit from Ganga Tera Paani Amrit’ (post by Khyati ji)

(a very nice post and all comments there are full of emotions! who else other than Sahir Ludhiyanvi could do that, he has given words to our emotions for ‘Ganga’ – the soul of India !!!) by Avinash Scrapwala

8) Tora manwa kyon ghabraye from ‘Sadhna’ (by Atul ji)

9) Man re too kahe na dhir dhare from ‘Chitralekha’
(Post by Atul ji)
“Intensely Beautiful song! The meaning touches the soul each time!” – Indyana

10) Ishwar allah tere naam from ‘Naya Raasta’…
“Here is this awesome bhajan from “Naya Raasta” (1970). This song, which is sung
by Rafi and chorus, is bound to bring solace and comfort to listeners.” By Atul ji

(Apart from bringing solace and comfort this song also speaks of one to lift oneself above caste, creed, religion, and do good … it emphasizes ‘karm’ and seek peace for all!!!) – By Avinash Scrapwala.

Another beautiful song (which is not in the compilation) is teri hai zameen, teraa aasmaan from ‘The Burning Train-1980’

This is another lovely gem penned by Sahir. (And this was the song which started my interaction with Atul ji and eventually I started contributing lyrics posts on our blog).

The two songs from the album that remain to be posted are:
1) Raam rahim Krishna kareem… sab ki hain ik hi taalim -Mehmaan (1974)
2) O praani re … teri karam kahaani teri aatma bhi jaane – Chingaari (1971*).

*The film itself is said to have been released only in 1989.
I will discuss the first song at another time, but today I would like to discuss the song from “Chingaari”(1971). (Incidentally, there was a film in 1955 with the same title in which there is ONE song whose lyrics have been penned by Sahir).

This song from Chingaari(1971) is a beautiful, philosophical, gem about our ‘Karma’.

Sahir is talking to man, saying that however much he tries to cover up his deeds, his soul (aatma) knows. And He (the Lord, Parmatma) knows. So it is futile to commit sin and then try to cover it up.

Sahir emphasizes that you reap what you sow. The world is the result of karma. And your ‘karma’ cannot be hidden from your soul. And from Him (the Lord, Parmatma).

Such a clear philosophical statement coming from a man, known primarily for his Urdu shaayri!

I will leave all of you with this song now.

And, while on this subject, I would also like to take the opportunity to pray to the Almighty to shower his love and affection on all of us, irrespective of caste, creed or religion.

This special song happens to be my one hundredth Sahir Ludhianvi lyrics contribution in the blog.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….4
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from film Albeli-1955.

The year 1955 gave us some really meaningful and entertaining films. Raj Kapoor’s ‘Shri 420′ tried to bring in limelight, as usual, the hypocrisy of the elite society. It was a great film with a message, good direction and everlasting music by Shanker-Jaikishen, the three specialities of an RK film. From this film onwards, “Raju” became the favourite name of Raj Kapoor’s Heroes.( Like ‘Shanker’ was Shammi Kapoor’s lucky name in early films. Similarly ‘Vijay’ was the favourite film name of Amitabh Bachhan in 20 films, of Jeetendra in 18 films and of Mithun Chakrawarty in 16 films.).

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 5
—————————————————–

It should be an interesting exercise – to identify and list out all the sales pitch songs, and then check which actors have performed them on screen. My intuition is that the exercise will indicate that most sales pitch songs, sung by male voices, have been performed on screen by either Johnny Walker or Mehmood.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 3
—————————————————–

Aha,

lailaa ki ungliyaan hain
majnoo ki pasliyaan hain
do do paise mein le lo babu
naram taazi kakdiyaan hain

I remember this jingle from childhood.  Occasionally used to hear it from the roadside hawkers, and once I even heard it in a radio play on Vividh Bharti.  Then many years later, I encountered this song also.  I used to wonder, whether the song came first or this jingle came first – which is based on which.  As I prepare this post, just casually I googled it, and found references to Lucknow and Agra where fresh vegetable vendors are known to use this jingle.  So maybe this is more of a folk tradition, converted into a film song later on.  Just like “Jumkha Gira Re Bareilly Ke Bazaar Mein“.  ;)
