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

O ghata saanwari thhodi thhodi baawri

Posted on: July 18, 2009


I have noticed that Bollywood movies have songs for almost all occasions. There are happy songs, there are sad songs, there are party songs, there are songs of loneliness. Then there are boat songs, rain songs, festival songs etc. In fact, I have discovered some fight songs, where the hero fights villains while singing.

Though singing and dancing ( and also fighting) requires physical fitness, Bollywood heroes and heroines are never shown exercising to keep fit. In fact they are never shown practicing any of their skills. If they are students, they are never shown studying. They are only shown singing romantic songs. If they are doctors, they are never shown doing any clinical work, they are only shown singing and dancing.

I am happy to report that I have finally discovered a song in which the value of exercise is realised. In this song “O ghata saanwari” from “Abhinetri” (1970), Hema Malini is shown exercising while singing the song. Better late than never. And in the next stanza, she is shown taking bath. So this song preaches that one should exercise and then take bath. Yes, one does sweat after exercising. 😉

This song is sung by Lata. It is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song talks aboout “ghata” (clouds). But I suppose one cannot be too demanding. Let Hema Malini exercise ( and take bath) while singing about clouds and rains. It is alright with the watchers. In fact, she, and other heroines should exercise more, while singing on any topics of their choice.


Song-O ghata saanwri thodi thodi baawri (Abhinetri) (1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
O ghataa saanwri
thodi thodi baawri
ho gayi hai barsaat kyaa
har saans hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa
har baat hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa
O ghata saanwri
thodi thodi baawri
ho gayi hai barsaat kyaa
har saans hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa

aawaaz thi kal yahi
phir bhi aise lahakti na dekhi
pag me thi paayal magar
phir bhi aise jhanakti na dekhi
chanchal ho gaye
ghunghroo..roo me..re
ghunghroo mere raaton raat kyaa
O ghata saanwri
thodi thodi baawri
ho gayi hai barsaat kyaa
har saans hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa

masti se bojhal pawan
jaise chaaya koyi man pe dole
barkha ki har boond par
tharthari si mere tan pe dole
paagal mausam
jaare jaa jaa jaa jaa
hmm hmm
ho ho ho
jaa tu lagaa mere saath kyaa
O ghata saanwri
thodi thodi baawri
ho gayi hai barsaat kyaa
har saans hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa
har baat hai bahki huyi
abki baras hai ye baat kyaa
hmm hmm hmm
