Sakhi ri pea ka naam naam naa poochho

Posted on: August 9, 2010


Indian culture has some values which may sound strange to westerners.

For instance, in the Indian culture, girls blush a lot on the topic of their would be husband. And taking the name of the would be husband (and even the husband in case of married women) is considered a no-no. This is a result of the teaching of the ancient scriptures which prescribe that women should not address their husbands by their names. So women have devised other forms of addressing their husbands. They would address their husband as “Sunte ho ji”, “Maine kahaa” etc. Later, when a kid is born to them, this comes as a heavensend as now she can address him as “Munne ke Baapu” or something similar. In case, the woman has to discuss her husband with others, she will use term like “Wo” , “unke” “inke” etc. Like, “Let us go shopping”. “Nahin, main to inke saath shopping jaaungi”.

Here is a song from “Sati Savitri” (1964) which is based on this topic. The sakhis of the lady are asking the name of her would be husband and the lady requests them not to ask her his name, as she feels too shy to utter his name.

Here is this song which is sung by Lata and her sahelis. Bharat Vyas has written a masterful song and Laxmikant Pyarelal, then in their initial days as independent music directors, have come up with a nice music.

So here is this nice song from “Sati Savitri” (1964). farmaish for this song was given by Mohan.


Song-Sakhi ri pea ka naam naam naa poochho(Sati Savitri) (1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Sakhi ri
Sakhi ri
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
main kaise bataaun
main kahte lajaaun
main kaise bataaun
ye kahte lajaaun
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam

Jamuna kinaare ek din main khadi thi
pehli ghata ki halki halki jhadi thi
kaisi suhaani anokhi ghadi thi
palken uthin aur ankhiyaan ladin thin
banaaya tujhe bawaari
bataa de uskaa naam ri
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
main kaise bataaun
main kahte lajaaun
main kaise bataaun
ye kahte lajaaun
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam

naina the jaise kamal ki pankhudiyaan
bainaa the jaise ke baaje bansuriyaa
roop tha jaise ke chandaa gagan kaa
rang tha bhor ki pahli kiran kaa
bani tu jiski baawri
bataa de uskaa naam ri
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
main kaise bataaun
main kahte lajaaun
main kaise bataaun
ye kahte lajaaun
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam
naam na poochho
Sakhi ri pea kaa naam

Lovely write-up. In particular, I was ROFL reading this part:

So women have devised other forms of addressing their husbands. They would address their husband as “Sunte ho ji”, “Maine kahaa” etc. Later, when a kid is born to them, this comes as a heavensend as now she can address him as “Munne ke Baapu” or something similar. In case, the woman has to discuss her husband with others, she will use term like “Wo” , “unke” “inke” etc. Like, “Let us go shopping”. “Nahin, main to inke saath shopping jaaungi”.

Must say this is a lovely song. Never heard it before. Typical Bharat Vyas lyrics – pure Hindi.

Btw, what does “pankhudiyan” mean? Petals?
