Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Parbaton ke pedon par

Posted on: October 8, 2008


There are many instances when songs from obscure movies went on to become evergreen. This song from a barely remembered movie called Shagoon (1964) is one such song. I have listened to this song and I liked it too, but I had no other information other than the fact that the male voice belonged to Rafi.

After researching this song, I consider myself better informed now. For instance , now I know that the female voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. Lyrics is by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by Khyyam, who was a perennially underachieving music director.

While watching the video of this song, I could see that the actress was Waheeda Rahman. But who was the actor ? I was stumped. Some more digging revealed that it is Kamaljeet. No, not the Kanwaljeet whom we have seen in TV serials. This Kanwaljeet was an actor in 1960s. Putting 2+2 together, I concluded that this has to be the same Kanwaljeet whom Waheeda Rahman married.

So that way, they did what Bhagyasree and Himalaya did 25 years later, viz acted in a forgotten movie before/ after/ during getting married to each other.

Hopefully the above useless tidbits would be of some use to the readers of my blog. 😉

Song- Parbaton ke pedon par (Shagoon) (1964) Singers-Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics- Sahir Ludhianvi, MD- Khayyam

Lyrics

parbaton ke pedon par shaam kaa baseraa hai
parbaton ke pedon par shaam kaa baseraa hai
suramayi ujaalaa hai, champayi andheraa hai
suramayi ujaalaa hai

donon waqt milte hain do dilon ki soorat se
donon waqt milte hain do dilon ki soorat se
aasman ne khush hokar rang saa bikheraa hai
aasman ne khush hokar

thahare-thahare paani mein geet sar-saraate hain
thahare-thahare paani mein geet sar-saraate hain
bheege-bheege jhonkon mein khushbuon kaa deraa hai
bheege-bheege jhonkon mein khushbuon kaa deraa hai
parbaton ke pedon par

kyun na jazb ho jaayen is haseen nazaare mein
kyun na jazb ho jaayen is haseen nazaare mein
roshnii ka jhurmat hai mastiyon kaa gheraa hai
roshnii ka jhurmat hai mastiyon kaa gheraa hai
parbaton ke pedon par

ab kisi nazaare ki dil ko aarzoo kyon ho
ab kisi nazaare ki dil ko aarzoo kyon ho
jab se paa liyaa tum ko sab jahaan meraa hai
jab se paa liyaa tum ko sab jahaan meraa hai
parbaton ke pedon par shaam kaa baseraa hai
parbaton ke pedon par

Oooh Gossip! I didn’t know who the actor was and that Waheda Rehman married him, so now I know 🙂

Its a lovely song. Suman Kalyanpur should have been a lot more famous than she was with that beautiful voice.

Oh ! Suman was completely eclipsed by the NIGHTINGALE in all manners possible, suppressive, oppressive, professionally, et al.

Indeed, this song has so much of background information hidden behind it.

Atul, I am a little confused, in the description you mention the lyricist as Sahir Ludhianvi, but in your write up you mention the lyricist as Hasrat Jaipuri, which one is right? :).

It is Sahir Ludhainvi, of course.

Cool. Thanks for confirming :).

From what I checked, looks like it is Sahir Ludhianvi and not Hasrat Jaipuri.

For Anand Singh.
Here is my translation of the lyrics.

परबतों के पेड़ों पर शाम का बसेरा है, सुरमई उजाला है चंपई अँधेरा है
The evening has its nest in the trees on the mountains, with inky dark dawns and sepia-colored darkness.

दोनों वक़्त मिलते हैं दो दिलों की सूरत से, आसमान ने खुश होकर रँगसा बिखेरा है
They (the dawn and the darkness) meet at both times as two hearts (do); The delighted sky, has seemingly scattered color.

ठहरे-ठहरे पानी में गीत सरसराते हैं, भीगे-भीगे झोंकों में खुश्बुओं का डेरा है
Songs sigh in the placid waters. (And) the wet breezes contain the abode of fragrances.

क्यूँ ना जज़्ब हो जाएँ इस हसीन नज़ारे में? रोशनी का झुरमट है, मस्तियों का घेरा है!
Why not (we) get seduced by this beautiful scenario? There’s a star-cluster of brightness (And) a (bounded) perimeter of intoxication.

अब किसी नज़ारे की दिल को आरज़ू क्यों हो? जब से पा लिया तुम को सब जहाँ मेरा है!
Now why would (my) heart long for any other scenario? When I have gotten you, the whole world is mine!
