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

Jaa ri pawaniyaa piyaa ke des jaa

Posted on: January 13, 2010


This is one song about which I had no idea. And like me, most people are ignorant about the existence of this song from an obscure movie called “Do Boond Paani” (1971).

But when I came to know about the existence of this song, thanks to the farmaish of Bawa, I searched hard for this song. My appetite was whetted by the fact that the one song from this movie that I was able to locate- “peetal ki meri gaagari” was such an ear pleasing composition.

I was able to locate the audio of this song, but getting it to download took considerable effort on my part. That done, here is this difficult to find song for the listeneing pleasure of music lovers.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Kaifi Azmi and music is composed by Jaidev. It is a gem of a song and it should be much better known to music lovers. Hopefully this post of mine will help this song getting some exposure among the music lovers, many of them (like me) may get to listen to this song only for the first time here.

Song-Jaa ri pawaniyaa piyaa ke des jaa (Do Boond Paani) (1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm hmm
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa

jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
itnaa sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
piyaa son sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa

jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
itnaa sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
piyaa son sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa

tan-man pyaasaa, pyaasi najariyaa
pyaasi pyaasi gaagariyaa
tan-man pyaasaa, pyaasi najariyaa
pyaasi pyaasi gaagariyaa
ambar pyaasaa, dharti pyaasi
pyaasi saari nagariyaa
pyaasi saari nagariyaa
pyaas bujhegi tab jeewan ki
pyaas bujhegi tab jeewan ki
jab ghar aawe saanwariyaa
itnaa sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa

man ki agni tan ko jalaaye
tum bin koyi naa jaane
man ki agni tan ko jalaaye
tum bin koyi naa jaane
chhodi tum ne jo ranbhoomi
sakhiyaan maarengi taane mohe
sakhiyaan maarengi taane
laaj ke maare mar jaayegi
laaj ke maare mar jaayegi
apne piyaa ki baawariyaa
bas itnaa sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
jaa ri pawaniyaa, piyaa ke des jaa
itnaa sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
piyaa son sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
piyaa son sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa
piyaa son sandesaa moraa kahiyo jaa

Thank you Atul, (bows), great to hear it after all these years. Sounded slightly different (better) than what I remembered it.

It was filmed on a beautiful Simi Garewal going about her daily tasks in a Rajasthan village that is suffering from prolonged drought, and her husband Jalal Agha is away working to earn money to send back, a common enough occurrence in any Indian village.

I have fallen in love after listening to it for the first time itself!
