Raju ka hai ek khwaab

Posted on: November 12, 2010


Here is a song that I had never heard before. I became aware of this song only because of the farmaish for this song.

when I searched for this song, I discovered that this song had two versions. One is the happy version and other is a sad version.

Both versions are sung by Rafi and picturised on Shashi Kapoor. The happy version is sung among slum kids, whereas the sad version is sung in a gathering that also includes Nanda, among others.

The song is written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Happy version

Sad version

Song-Raju ka hai ek khwaab (Raja Saab) (1969) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

Happy version
———————————–
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
raaj hai naa taaj hai
phir bhi main hoon raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab

mere honthon pe jo hain
dukh bhari kahaaniyaan
mujhko inse pyaar hai
ye hain meri raaniyaan
are ye hain meri raaniyaan
meraa bhi nahin jawaab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab

main raahon mein hi sahi
main manzil pe naa sahi
achchhaa maanaa theek hai
mere dil pe naa sahi
arre mere dil pe naa sahi
mere gham pe hai shabaab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab

meri mehfil mein suno
afsaane hain dard ke
majboori ki mastiyaan
paimaane hain dard ke
arre paimaane hain dard ke
aansuon ki hai sharaab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa saahab
raaj hai naa taaj hai
phir bhi main hoon raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa hai ek khwaab Raajuu raajaa saahab

Sad version

jinki qismat mein kaante
wo khwaab na dekhen kaliyon ke
kaliyaan mehlon ki raunak
aur kaante raahi galiyon ke

Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
raaj thaa naa taaj thaa
phir bhi main thaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab

main badaa naadaan thhaa
main badaa thhaa bekhabar
maine dekhin sooraten
maine naa dekhi magar
maine naa dekhi magar
bewafaayi ki naqaab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab

chhoo na paaun main kabhi
jiske kadmon ki bhi dhool
maine kyun chaahaa usse
main khizaan ka ek phool
main khizaan ka ek phool
wo bahaaron ka gulaab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab

ho mubaarak aapke
ghar baraaten aa gayin
mere lab pe bhool se
gham ki baaten aa gayi
gham ki baaten aa gayi
maaf kar denaa janaab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
raaj thaa naa taaj thaa
phir bhi main thaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab
Raajuu kaa thaa ek khwaab
Raajuu raajaa raajaa saahab

This song brings back such great memories – I used to sing this to my older son, when he was a little baby, because I called him Raja all the time, which slowly became Raju! It brings a smile to my face every time I hear it. Btw, I used to be a great fan of Shashi Kapoor’s smile with his crooked teeth, and I was thrilled to discover that my husband-to-be had similar teeth! What does that say about me? One more diehard Shashi fan, after Waqt and JJPK!

Thanks, Atul, for the song!
