Naa main dhan chaahoon naa ratan chaahoon

Posted on: September 5, 2009


I have posted several songs from “Kaala Bazaar” (1960), and they are all wonderful songs. Here is another song in the same league from this movie.

It is sung by Geeta Dutt and Sudha Malhotra. Shailendra is the lyricist and S D Burman is the music director.

This song, which is a bhajan, has in fact become a fairly common Bhajan/ prayer in many households/ gatherings, such has been the impact of this song over the decades.

Song-Naa main dhan chaahoon naa ratan chaahoon (Kala Bazaar) (1960) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

na main dhan chaahoon, na ratan chaahoon
na main dhan chaahoon, na ratan chaahoon
tere charnon ki dhool mil jaaye
tere charnon ki dhool mil jaaye
to main tar jaaun, shyaam tar jaaun
he Raam tar jaaun

moh man mohe, lobh lalchaaye
moh man mohe, lobh lalchaaye
kaise kaise ye naag lahraaye
kaise kaise ye naag lahraaye
isase pahle ke dil udhar jaaye
main to mar jaaun, kyun na mar jaaun
na main dhan chaahoon, na ratan chaahoon

aaa aaa
aaa aaa
laaye kyaa the jo leke jaanaa hai
laaye kyaa the jo leke jaanaa hai
nek dil hi teraa khazaanaa hai
nek dil hi teraa khazaanaa hai
saanjh hote hi panchhi aa jaaye
ab to ghar jaaun apne ghar jaaun
tere charnon ki dhool mil jaaye
to main tar jaaun, Shyaam tar jaaun
he Raam tar jaaun

aaa aaa
aaa aaa
tham gayaa paani, jam gayi kaayi
tham gayaa paani, jam gayi kaayi
bahti nadiyaa hi saaf kahlaayi
bahti nadiyaa hi saaf kahlaayi
mere dil ne hi jaal phailaaye
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun
ab kidhar jaaun, main kidhar jaaun

Saw this movie today.
What a lovely movie it is!
Dev Anand and Waheeda together were always a lovely combo and this movie is no exception. Vijay Anand’s direction is very good and the songs are just brilliant!!!

Like this bhajan. After watching the movie, of all the lovely songs it has, the one that I wanted to immediately watch again was not “khoya khoya chand” or “apni to bas”.

It was this bhajan. I have heard it 5 times already – and everytime it just makes even more of an impression on me.

My salute to Shailendra for the lyrics, SD Burman for the music and Geeta Dutt and Sudha Malhotra for their singing. I cannot get enough of this bhajan.
