Hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai

Posted on: August 23, 2010


This is a song from “Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai” (1960) whose farmaish was given to be posted as a patriotic song on the occasion of the independence day.

I do not think it is a patriotic song as such. It is a song that describes the characteristics of India and Indians, and it was written in 1960 in an era when Indias were more idealistic and less cynical about the affairs of the country. So it is song about a place, viz about India.

This song is sung by Mukesh and it is picturised on Raj Kapoor. The picturisation shows Raj Kapoor in the midst of dacoits of Chambal valley and there he sings this song about the country that India is.

Shailendra is the lyricist and music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

This song is easily one of the most memorable iconic songs from Hindi movies.
PS-This song also has another part of the song, which plays at the end of the movie. Lyrics of this part II has now been provided by Sudhir jee. He has also provided lyrics for one missing para in part I.

Lyrics

——————————–
Part I
——————————–
hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai
jahaan dil mein safaayi rehti hai
ham us desh ke waasi hain,
ham us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai
hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai
jahaan dil mein safaayi rehti hai
ham us desh ke waasi hain,
ham us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

mehmaan jo hamaaraa hotaa hai
wo jaan se pyaaraa hotaa hai
mehmaan jo hamaaraa hotaa hai
wo jaan se pyaaraa hotaa hai
zyaadaa ki nahin laalach hamko
thode mein guzaaraa hotaa hai
thode mein guzaaraa hotaa hai
bachchon ke liye jo dharti maan
sadiyon se sabhi kuchh sehti hai
ham us desh ke waasi hain,
ham us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

kuchh log jo zyaadaa jaante hain
insaan ko kam pehchaante hain
kuchh log jo zyaadaa jaante hain
insaan ko kam pehchaante hain
ye poorab hai poorabwaale
har jaan ki keemat jaante hain
har jaan ki keemat jaante hain
mil jul ke raho aur pyaar karo
ek cheez yahi jo rehti hai
ham us desh ke waasi hain,
ham us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

jo jis se milaa sikhaa hum ne
gairon ko bhi apnaaya hum ne
jo jis se milaa sikhaa hum ne
gairon ko bhi apnaaya hum ne
matlab ke liye andhe ho kar
roti ko nahin pooja hum ne
roti ko nahin pooja hum ne
ab hum to kya saari duniya
saari duniya se kehti hai
hum us desh ke waasi hain
hum us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa beht hai
hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai
jahaan dil mein safaayi rehti hai
ham us desh ke waasi hain,
ham us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

—————————————-
Part II (Lyrics provided by Sudhir)
—————————————-
hum kal kya thhe hum aaj hain kya
is ka hi nahin abhimaan hamen
hum kal kya thhe hum aaj hain kya
is ka hi nahin abhimaan hamen
jis raah pe aage badhnaa hai
hai us ki bhi pehchaan hamen
hai us ki bhi pehchaan hamen
is dhaara ko kis ne roka
ye bandh ke bhalaa kab rehti hai
hum us desh ke waasi hain
hum us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

ho ooo
jis desh mein Gangaa behti hai

Despite what Atul says, I would consider this as a “patriotic song”, on par with vandE mAtaram. While vandE mAtaram describes the physical attributes of India, this song from Shailendra talks about the philosophical bent of India; albeit an India of 60’s, but nevertheless truly India.

Atul, you could have a category of such songs – “Shailendra and his philosophy”!

Atul ji,

The lyrics for the third antaraa are

jo jis se milaa sikhaa hum ne
gairon ko bhi apnaaya hum ne
jo jis se milaa sikhaa hum ne
gairon ko bhi apnaaya hum ne
matlab ke liye andhe ho kar
roti ko nahin pooja hum ne
roti ko nahin pooja hum ne
ab hum to kya saari duniya
saari duniya se kehti hai
hum us desh ke waasi hain
hum us desh ke waasi hain
jis desh mein Gangaa beht hai

This song has a Sad version too sung by Mukesh. Lyrics are

ye loot khasot ye dakaazani

bhaai ki bhaai se naa bani

ye dharti kya kuch sehti hai
us desh main ye bhi hota hai

jis desh main ganga behti hai
us desh main ye bhi hota hai
