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

Nadi kinaare baithke aao

Posted on: June 8, 2010


Here is a song from the earliest days of Bollywood talkies. This song is from “Jaageerdaar” (1937). It was with this movie that Anil Biswas came to prominence as a music director.

It is such a delight to be able to listen to a song as old as this. Those were very primitive days as far as sound recording technology was concerned. The actors themselves had to sing those days. In case of duet, the singers had to take their turns at the same microphone.Takes were a luxury as it meant spoiling valuable raw material. Despite such primitive conditions, many great songs were recorded those days.

One must also appreciate the fans who collected and preserved the records of songs from those days and share it ever so graciously with other music lovers. I am very thankful to the people who have uploaded this gem, which is in fact should be regarded as an important historical landmark in Hindi movie music.

This song is sung by Motilal and Maya Bannerji. Zia Sarhadi is the lyricist, and as mentioned earlier, Anil Biswas is the music director. No video of this song exist and no accounts of how the song was recorded is available, but I can imagine how things must be like those days. To many youngsters with little appreciation of our heritage (I too was one such youngster four decades ago), a song like this this may be more a source of amusement, but for those who value history, songs like this are priceless gems. It is songs like this that paved the way for the arrival of the golden era of Bollywood music.

Here is this wonderful song from the distant past. I have not been able to fully follow all the words, so the lyrics provided by me may have inaccuracies. Readers with better ears are requested to point our the correct words where I may have erred. That will help me provide more accurate lyrics of this song.


Song-Nadi kinaare baithke aao (Jaagirdaar) (1937) Singers-Motilal, Maya Bannerji, Lyrics-Zia Sarhadi,MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen
nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen
chulloo bhar bhar paani ke boonden
chulloo bhar bhar paani ke boonden
bhar bhar barsaayen
nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen
nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen
sookhwan
jab ban ke raja
sookhwan
jab ban ke raja
pawan jaag uthaa ??
pawan jaag uthaa ??
mil jul kar phir ban mein ham tum
mil jul kar phir ban mein ham tum
apnaa raaj chalaayen
apnaa raaj chalaayen
nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen
nadi kinaare baithke aao
phir se jee bahlaayen

kaaghaz ki ek naao banaakar
jal mein usse chalaayen
kaaghaz ki ek naao banaakar
jal mein usse chalaayen
duniya ki tasweer banaakar
duniya ki tasweer banaakar
