Kaise jeete hain bhala hamse seekho ye ada

Posted on: March 17, 2009

“Dost” (1974) had one iconic song viz “gaadi bula rahi hai” which has been posted in this blog already.

I stumbled upon yet another song from this movie which I had not heard for last three decades. This song, which i did not think much about in those days, is a nice song ( spoken with the benefit of hindsight, of course). It is a philosophical song sung by Rafi ( for Dharmendra) and Lata ( singing for Hema Malini) later joins. In the meanwhile Shatrughan Sinha too utters a few dialogues. These dialogues may have impressed the front benchers in those days, but now a days it would seem that the dialogues of Shatrughan Sinha sound like empty bluster than any meaningful dialogues. In fact, often I am unable to understand what the Bihari Babu is trying to say. I think that even he himself may not be able to tell what he was trying to say.

As I say, it is a nice song written by Anand Bakshi and the music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Song-Kaise jeete hain bhala (Dost) (1974) Singer-Rafi, Lata, Shatrughan Sinha, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal


Kaise jeete hain bhala hamse seekho ye adaa
Kaise jeete hain bhala hamse seekho ye adaa
aise kyoon zinda hain log kaise sharminda hain log
dil pe sahkar sitam ke teer bhi
pahan kar paaon me zanjeer bhi
raks kiya jaataa hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai

dar se khaamosh hain jo kaisa bepeer hai wo
haan wo insaan nahin ek tasweer hai wo

jo paak saaye khuda jisse darta hai apna
aur is ghareebi me badi mauz karta hai apan

pareshaan laakh sahi
gul nahin khakh sahi
zindagi hai laajwaab
ye wo sewa hai janaab
khoobsoorat hai jo dulhan se bhi
doston dost hai dushman se bhi
pyaar kiya jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiya jaataa hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiya jaataa hai

cheez is gham se badi iss zamaane me nahin
jo mazaa rone me hai muskuraane me nahin

isi liye to bhai rookhi sookhi jo mile pet bharne ke liye
aur kaafi do ghaz hai zameen jeene marne ke liye
kaise nadaan hain wo
gham se anjaan hai jo
ranz na ho ta agar to kyaa khushi ki thi kadar
dard khud hai maseeha doston
dard se bhi doston dawa ka kaam liya jaata hai

( $#@%^&)
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiya jaata hai

aaa aaa aaa
chain mahlon pe nahin rangrailiyon me
mujhe de do thodi si jagah apni galiyon me mujhe
jhoom kar naachne do aaj masti me zara
le chalo saath mujhe apni basti me zara
bana ho sone ka bhi
pijra hai pinjra ji
paisa kis kaam ka
dhoka bas naam ka hai
rok le jo laga ke preet ko
apne haathon se aisi reet ko tod diya jaata hai
maine bhi seekh liya kaise jiya jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai
aa bata den ye tujhe kaise jiyaa jaata hai

I think “ye wo sewa hai janaab” should actually be “ye wo bewa hai janaab’. (a widow – jo dulhan se bhi khoobsoorat hai)

i think the word sewa is not appropriate word it is yeh woh Bewa(widow)hai janaab…
