Milke baithho jodo bandhan

Posted on: September 20, 2010


In 1950s, when India was a newly independent nation and people were very enthusiastic about the task of nation building, we had many movies made on the topic of nation building.

“Panchaayat” (1958) was one such movie. Panchaayat (village council) was a new concept in India at that time and the movie was an attempt to teach public about them.

The movie itself opens with a song that tells the listeners about the virtues of a panchaayat. If you have disputes, do not go to court and waste your time. Go to the panchaayat instead and get the problem sorted out promptly and amicably- this is the message that is conveyed in this song.

This song, which is a Movie opening song, title song and theme song, all rolled into one, is sung by Rafi. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist and music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

Here is this lovely song with a message.

Song-Milke baitho jodo bandhan (Panchaayat) (1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Numani,MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
kisi ko ho jo kabhi shiqaayat
apni panchaayat kar lo
kisi ko ho jo kabhi shiqaayat
apni panchaayat kar lo
chhodo kachari chhodo adaalat
ghar ki panchaayat kar lo
chhodo kachari chhodo adaalat
ghar ki panchaayat kar lo
chhoti baat badhaao na tum
chhoti baat badhaao na tum
dharti maa ki tumhen qasam
dharti maa ki tumhen qasam
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan

apne dukhde apne jhagde
aap hi milke khatm karo
apne dukhde apne jhagde
aap hi milke khatm karo
dukh sukh milke baant lo sabka
phoot dilon ki khatm karo
dukh sukh milke baant lo sabka
phoot dilon ki khatm karo
khot dilon mein rahne na paaye
khot dilon mein rahne na paaye
dharti ma ki tumhe qasam
dharti ma ki tumhe qasam
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan
milke baitho
jodo bandhan

Thanks Atul. Great find and lot of information in your write up. I, for one, always assumed there was a panchayat. There has always been something similar in place I believe.

Panchaayat were there from time immemorial, but they did not have official blessing in India before 1950s.
