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

Ek musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye

Posted on: May 6, 2010


I have posted a couple of songs from “Door Ki Aawaaz” (1964) in the past. The evergreen “ham bhi agar bachhe hote” is one of these songs that has been posted earlier.

Here is one of the lesser known songs (at least for me) from this movie. This song is sung by Rafi. It is written by Shakeel Badayuni and music is composed by Ravi. The song was a comedy and it was picturised on Johny Walker.

In my younger days, when there were no TVs in India, we followed live broadcast of cricket and hockey matches on radio and tried to make guesses about what was going on in the match based on the running commentary of the match. Here I find myself doing the same with this song. The video picturisation of this song is not available and I am trying to imagine from the lyrics how this song must have been picturised on Johny Walker who is desperate to find seating accomodation in a crowded bus. I would love to watch the picturisation of this song.

PS-Now I have come to know of a video link of this song, thanks to Sumitra. Thanks a lot, Sumitra.

Song-Ek musaafir ko duniya mein kyaa chaahiye (Door Ki Aawaaz) (1964) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
baith jaaun ?

koyi baitha koi letaa magar khade ham
ye kaisi khudgarzi ye kaisa hai sitam
koyi baitha koi letaa magar khade ham
ye kaisi khudgarzi ye kaisa hai sitam
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
saath milkar hamen baithnaa chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
baith jaaun ?

o mote laalaa toone kiyaa hai kaisaa chhal
Ticket teraa single magar tu double
o mote laalaa toone kiyaa hai kaisaa chhal
Ticket teraa single magar tu double
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
aisi body mein dil bhi badaa chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
baith jaaun ?

o naqli daadhi waale tu gussaa mat kar
hamen bhi jagah de-de Khudaa se zaraa dar
o naqli daadhi waale tu gussaa mat kar
hamen bhi jagah de-de Khudaa se zaraa dar
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
teraa photo na teraa pataa chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
baith jaaun ?

ham par bhi zaraa kar do inaayat ki nazar
Khushi se kat jaaye hamaaraa bhi safar
ham par bhi zaraa kar do inaayat ki nazar
Khushi se kat jaaye hamaaraa bhi safar
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
khisak zaraa pyaare sarak zaraa pyaare
yoon kisi kaa na dil todnaa chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
ik musaafir ko duniyaa mein kyaa chaahiye
sirf thodi si dil mein jagah chaahiye
maine kahaa baith jaaun ?

Thanks for posting this farmaish of mine, Atul.
I like the lyrics of this song – they are cute.
I have seen this song long back on youtube – it seems to have been removed since. Pity.
I am not sure whether it was picturised on Johnny Walker or Joy Mukherjee when I saw it. Maybe somebody who has seen the movie/video can confirm this.

“when there were no TVs in India,”
But Atul you are not very old! My grandmother had a TV in the 60s. Perhaps they were not as common till the 70s or so. I remember in boarding school in the late 70s all of us crowding around a TV.

when I left India in 1969…there was no TV…
TV came in 1972…
(BTW: I am 64, a lady)
this is definitely Johny Walker…try to get a seat in crowded train.

we can campare the train as life…we need each other help and should give something to someone…less selfish…is better.

derubala, these things can be googled easily. The first experimental TV broadcasts were in 1959. But TV stations were only set up in the late 60s. Like I said, my grandmother had a TV in the 60s. And I remember watching TV with her then. I left India in 1971 so it must have been around that time. I was 4.

In 1968 I returned from overseas with my parents with a TV to find that only Delhi had limited timed transmissions. We settled in Bombay-a bada shehar & major city- and there was NO TV. Now people sit glued to their TV with all those serials!! I suppose one can easily get addicted to them. In a place like Australia where things are slow to come, it has landed.
I found the link with the actual scene. It is one minute short.
Something is better than nothing, I guess.
