Jaago Mohan pyaare jaago

Posted on: September 8, 2008


For sleeping, you have options like listening to lories ( if you are young), or counting sheep ( if you are not that young), trying to do homework etc.

But what about waking up ? There is no lori equivalent of songs to choose from when it comes to waking people up. In its absence, people resort to mechanical contraption viz alarm clocks or biological contraption viz ghar ka murga giving “baang” etc.

What to do if you do not have an alarm clock or a murga at home ? Here is a Bollywood song that tries to address this situation. This goes- “jaago Mohan pyaare jaago” and it also mentions that everyone else viz kaliyan (buds) and galiyan (streets) have already woken up.

This song, as often happens with such songs, has gone on to become a popular bhajan. But as the lyrics show, its original aim may have been as a wake up call, sort of desi alarm clock or desi “cock a doodle do”.

The people who have combined to create this song are all legendary figures viz Lata as singer, Shailendra as lyricist and Salil Chowdhary as music director. And it goes without saying that it is one of the iconic songs that people tend to hum quite often, without even knowing all the details that this post contains.


Song- Jaago Mohan pyaare (Jaagte Raho) (1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Shailendra, MD- Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

jaago

jaago jaago

jab ujiyaara chhaaye
man ka andhera jaaye
kiranon ki Raani gaaye
jaago he, mere Man Mohan pyaare

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
nav yug choome nain tihaare
jaago, jaago Mohan pyaare

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

jisne man ka deep jalaaya
duniya ko usne hi ujla paaya
jisane man kaa deep jalaaya
duniyaa ko usne hi ujla paaya
mat rahna ankhhiyon ke sahaare
jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
nav yug choome nain tihaare
jaago, jaago Mohan pyaare

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagii re jag jag

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagii re jag jag

kiran pari gagri chhalkaaye
jyot ka pyaasa pyaas bujhaaye
kiran pari gagri chhalkaaye
jyot ka pyaasa pyaas bujhaaye
phool bane man ke angaare
jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
jaago Mohan pyaare jaago
nav yug choome nain tihaare
jaago, jaago Mohan pyaare

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

jaagi re jaagi re jaag kaliyaan jaagi
Nagar Nagar sab galiyaan jaagi
jaagi re jaagi re jaagi re
jaagi re jaagi re jag jag

Aaa Aaa
O Jaago

Very good song…I remember seeing this movie as a little boy…it is all about one night.

There is another song in this movie, picturised on Motilal…”Zindagi khwab hai”.

Nargis has only a cameo role.
