Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori saajan ke ghar jaane ki

Posted on: July 29, 2010


Long ago, when I was a school kid, I was an avid radio listener. One of the radio programmes that I regularly listened to was “Vishesh Jaimala” broadcast on saturday evening (and repeated on sunday afternoon). This programme was presented by a celebrity from Bollywood, but sometimes celebrities from other fields were also invited to present the programme.

Sunil Gavaskar,then a leading Indian cricketer presented a Vishesh Jaimala programme in 1975. I listened to this programme. I remember the fact that Gavaskar played the song Chand si mahbooba ho meri kab aisa maine socha tha(Himalay ki god mein)(1965). Some 30 years later in 2005, when I mentioned this fact in a forum where both Raja and I are members, Raja exclaimed that he too had listened to the same programme and remembers this song being played. Raja wondered if I had the transcript of that programme which I can share.

Well, I do not have that, but it would be nice if I could get it from somewhere. I in fact do not even remember what other songs Gavaskar had played in that programme. I recall that Gavaskar was then newly married, and he had talked a lot about his wife in the programme. Clearly he was much in love with his wife Marshneil (nee Marshneil Mehrotra).

Now I recall that another song that he had played in that song was also to do with his wife. This song is “Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori saajan ke ghar jaane ki”. I had no idea which movie this song was from, but now I have received a farmaish for this song and the farmaish sender (Dr Mohan Doshi) has very kindly mentioned the name of the movie too. This song is from a movie called “Sati Savitri” (1964).

This song is a nice wedding song where the Sakhis (lady friends) of the newly wedded bride advise her on how to conduct herself at the place of her in laws. Do not be over eager to go to your in laws place, better get some tips on how to conduct yourself there .Cover her face with “ghoonghat” all the time and show your face only after earnest request by the husband, do not giggle foolishly, etc. The sakhis give these well meaning advise to the newly wedded bride, though they themselves have no experience in these matters.

This song is a lovely wedding song with rural touch. The words and the references are applicable more to rural areas of Bihar and eastern UP than than to other parts. The song is quite cute and it is sung lovingly by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. I can detect some other voices too, but I have no idea who the other singers are. The video of this song is not available, so I have no idea about the picturisation of this song.

Laxmikant Pyarelal, then in their early days as independent music directors, composed the the music for this song.


Song-Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori saajan ke ghar jaane ki (Sati Saavitri) (1964) Singers-Lata, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori
saajan ke ghar jaane ki
Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori
saajan ke ghar jaane ki
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
haan
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
kuchh baaten hain samjhaane ki
Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori
saajan ke ghar jaane ki
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
haan
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
kuchh baaten hain samjhaane ki
Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori

ghunghte ki oat mein
tu ankhiyaan chhupaana
sainyaa pade painyya
to mukhdaa dikhaanaa
tere pi ko tu itni bhaayegi
tujhe unki nazar lag jaayegi
gazra wajra pehli chitwan
hai tere anjaane ki
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
haan
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
kuchh baaten hain samjhaane ki
Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori

sunke piyaa ki batiyaan hansi thi
apne hi bas mein rahiyo
gori
apne hi bas mein rahiyo
daanton tale kahin ungli dabaa ke
zor se hans mat dayio
gori
zor se hans mat dayio
tu hai badi nadaan re kuch pehchaan
simat kar rahiyo
seekh saheli
ye hai paheli
pi ko bas mein laane ki
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
haan
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
kuchh baaten hain samjhaane ki
Itni jaldi kyaa hai gori
saajan ke ghar jaane ki
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
haan
sakhiyon ke sang baith zaraa
kuchh baaten hain samjhaane ki
