Ek bangla bane nyaara

Posted on: February 18, 2009


Here is another K L Saigal classic from “President” (1937). Kidar Sharma was the lyricist ( can someone confirm it)and R C Boral was the music director.

I have heard this song many a times in “Purani filmon ke geet” programme of Radio Ceylon, but it is the first time I heard the dialogues acompanying the song yesterday. And of course, it is for the first time I watched the picturisation as well. The lyrics are quite interesting.

The 1937 style picturisation is inadvertently funny.

Song-Ek bangla bane nyaara (President) (1937) Singer-K L Saigal, Lyrics-Kidar Sharma,MD-Punkaj Mallick

Lyrics

rahegi na badariya chhaayi
rahegi na badariya chhaayi
honge ek din surya ke darshan
honge ek din surya ke darshan
wohi ghadi ab aayi
wohi ghadi ab aayi

tankha badh gayi hamaari
chaar sau harek maheene
kaam kiya nahin gaye maheene
kaam kiya nahin gaye maheene
phir bhi tankhaa paayi paayi
phir bhi tankhaa paayi

theek kahte ho
Prakash
kya ye sab theek hai
theek hai
main bilkul theek kahta hoon
Dinu bhai
theek
lo
mere paaon ki mitti lo
paaon ki mitti lo
jiji jiji
tum dekh lena
tum dekh lena
ki ek din saari mill hamaari ho jaayegi
hamaari
aaj agar pitaaji jinda hote
Prakash
Deenu Bhai
Prakash

ek banglaa bane nyaaraa
ek banglaa bane nyaaraa
rahe kunba jismein saaraa
ek banglaa bane nyaaraa
ek banglaa bane nyaaraa

sone kaa banglaa, chandan kaa janglaa
sone kaa banglaa, chandan kaa janglaa
Vishvakarmaa ke dvaara
Vishvakarmaa ke dvaara
sone kaa banglaa, chandan kaa janglaa
Vishvakarmaa ke dvaara
ati sundar pyaaraa pyaaraa
ek banglaa bane nyaaraa
ek banglaa bane nyaaraa

itnaa oonchaa banglaa hoye
maano gagan kaa taaraa
itnaa oonchaa banglaa hoye
maano gagan kaa taaraa
maano gagan kaa taaraa
maano gagan kaa taaraa
jis pe chadh ke indradhanushh par
jhoolaa jhoole chaand hamaaraa
jis pe chadh ke indradhanushh par
jhoolaa jhoole chaand hamaaraa
bhandaar hoye Lachhmi ke haathon mein saaraa
bhandaar hoye Lachhmi ke haathon mein saaraa
paaye ab ji bhar ke sukh jisne bipat uthaayi
paaye ab ji bhar ke sukh jisne bipat uthaayi

As a child, I used to make fun of K.L.Saigal’s songs, but now I find myself enjoying listening to them. Strange, how our tastes change, or is it merely nostalgia induced by the passing of our youth?

My father used to say that when he started working in the early 40s, his pay of Rs. 225 was considered a princely sum and he used to be able to save quite a bit from that amount! I was thinking of that when I heard the line in this song about the salary of Rs. 400 monthly, and wondered what our children would think about these numbers!

Yes, when I joined a reputed bank in 1975 my salary was Rs.250/- per month as a clerk apprentice. After 3 months my salary was increased to Rs.450/-. And out of this Rs.450/- I used to pay my (morning)College fees, buy dresses for me and plus conveyance. Imagine, we were all so happy. But now inspite of earning good amount of salary, people are not happy. They cannot make their ends meet due to their fulfilling unwanted needs. Really, days have changed. Aage kya hoga, bhagwan jaane. Life is going to be tough.

The song is different. It is NOT Ek Bangla Bane Nyaara. There is some problem of mixing. Did you check it. The song I can here is Rahegi na Badariya Chhayi.
