Sun mere bandhu re sun mere mitwaa

Posted on: October 31, 2010


I just realised that today 31st october is S D Burman’s death anniversary.He was born on the first of october, 1906 and he died on 31st of october 1975.

S D Burman was a genius, of that there is no doubt. He was highly respected by lay persons as well as experts, including his peers.

S D Burman is remembered not only for his music but also for his singing. He had a unique singing style and his songs unfailingly touched the heart strings of the listeners.

In this blog, I have discussed quite a few songs composed by S D Burman (207 to be exact) as well as songs sung by S D Burman (8 songs to be exact). S D Burman sang very few songs, but all these songs went on to become immortal.

Here is an immortal song from “Sujata” (1959). It is a background song as well as boat song. The picturisation shows Sunil Dutt interacting with a coy Nutan, while this song plays in the background.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist of this song.

Song-Sun mere bandhu re (Sujata) (1959) Singer-S D Burman, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
tere gale maalaa ban ke,
padi muskaati re
sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

diyaa kahe tu saagar,
main hoti teri nadiyaa
jiyaa kahe tu saagar,
main hoti teri nadiyaa
lahar bahar kar tu apne,
piyaa se mil jaati re
sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

oh my gosh i remembered the whole song. got the tune right and every nuance of the song,
actually i first always sing the song that is posted and then listen to it to see if i still remember it. that is y i am regular visitor to this blog. pullin atul’s leg and finding his mistakes is only secondary for me.

S D Burman’s singing always fills me with deep, oeverwhelming sense of sadness. I don’t know why this is, I love his music and the songs that he has sung, but it always takes a toll listening to him, so it is not something that I do too often.
Just his genius I guess!

His songs are like the songs of a fakir who has renounced the world.

He does these boat songs a lot and it seems much philosophy is dispensed on boats. So his songs have this quality.

‘jiyaa’ kahe tu saagar,
main hoti teri nadiyaa
