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

Piyaa te kahaan gayo

Posted on: September 30, 2010


This song from “Toofaan Aur Diyaa” (1956) was a very old farmaish. When I looked at the lyrics “Piyaa te kahaan”, I thought it was a typo. But when I listened to this song , I realised that the lyrics are in fact what I read.

This song is a Meera Bhajan. In the movie it is sung by Lata. Vasant Desai is the music director. I am not aware about the actor on whom this song is picturised since I have not been able to locate the video of this song so far. But seeing that this movie had Nanda and Rajendra Kumar in lead roles, there is a good chance that this song was picturised on Nanda.

Meera Bai was from Rajasthan, and her Bhajans are in Rajasthani which is almost the same as Hindi, but there are many words where one gets stumped if one is not familiar with the context. I have written down the lyrics but I am not satisfied with my effort. I request my readers to points out the errors and provide me with the proper words.

Set to Raag Asawari, It is a lovely song to listen to, even if one is unable to understand much of the words and their meanings.


song-Piyaa te kahaan (Toofaan Aur Diyaa) (1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Meera Bai, MD-Vasant Desai
