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

Gali gali Seeta roye aaj mere desh mein

Posted on: November 10, 2009


“Chhalia” (1960) had many songs which were sung by Lata (for Nutan) and Mukesh (for Raj Kapoor). But the final song of this movie was sung by Rafi and it was picturised on Raj Kapoor.

This final song, which also constituted the climax scene of the movie shows a big gathering assembled to watch the Dashara festival. Raj Kapoor sings this song in a bid to unite the family members of Nutan with her.

This is a lovely song about which I was not aware till I watched the movie recently. The song is written by Qamar Jalalabadi and the music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.


Song-Gali gali Seeta roye aaj mere desh mein(Chhalia) (1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

duniyaa waalon ik abla ki dukhi kahaani sun lo
haar jeet to khoob huyi ab meri jabaani sun lo

gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein
gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein

tumne naam sunaa dukhiya main use dekh ke aayaa hoon
tumne naam sunaa dukhiya main use dekh ke aayaa hoon
o desh ke bahnon bhaiyon main ik nayi shikaayat laaya hoon
o desh ke bahnon bhaiyon main ik nayi shikaayat laaya hoon
ye hai maata ye hai biwi dukhiya kisi zaat ki
roothe huye naath se ye khoyaa pyaar maagti
roothe huye naath se ye khoyaa pyaar maagti
gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein

uski leelaa dekh ke koyi iski leelaa jaane naa
uski leelaa dekh ke koyi iski leelaa jaane naa
piya yahaan preet yahaan par koyi pahchaane na
piya yahaan preet yahaan par koyi pahchaane na
aage badh ke dekh deewaane tu hi iskaa Raam hai
iske dil ko cheer ke dekho likaa teraa naam hai
iske dil ko cheer ke dekho likaa teraa naam hai
gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein

gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein

bahan kisi bhai ki hai wo bhi khafaa ho gaya
bahan kisi bhai ki hai wo bhi khafaa ho gaya
maan ye kisi laal ki hai wo bhi judaa ho gayaa
maan ye kisi laal ki hai wo bhi judaa ho gayaa
Janak Seetaa chhod de to kahaan jaaye Jaanki
maan ise pahchaan ke bhi phir nahin pahchaanti
maan ise pahchaan ke bhi phir nahin pahchaanti
gali-gali Seetaa roye aaj mere desh mein
Seetaa dekhi Raam dekhaa aaj naye bhesh mein
aaj naye bhesh mein

kyun bharosaa nahin ispe kyaa ye pyaar jhoothaa hai
bolo-bolo aansuon kaa kyaa ye haar jhoothaa hai
iski kathaa jhoothi hai to jhoothaa ye jahaan hai

What a meaningful and beautiful song! I vaguely remembered this song, but I enjoyed listening to it today, with the lyrics adding meaning and poignancy to the song. Thanks for writing about this song, Atul!

hi atul
tell me is this the only song sung by Rafi for Raj Kapoor?

There are other songs too where Rafi has sung for Raj Kapoor. In the earlier days of Rak Kapoor’s career, Rafi sang for Raj Kapoor.

there are a number of songs sung by mohd rafi,talat mehmood picturised on rajkapoor..you can find these in article mukesh not the only voice of rajkapoor in googlle.
