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

Andhhon se dayaa karnaa daataa

Posted on: December 12, 2010


These are the days of being political correct. Instead of calling a spade a spade, these days we use euphemisms instead. Thus, what was called an imbecile in the past is now called “differently enabled” and what was once called blind is now called “visually impaired”. Those were the days when cutting trees and hunting tigers was considered the in thing. Now these activities are banned.

Here is a song more than half a century old when a spade was called a spade, if not a shovel.This song is from “Sahaaraa” (1958). Here,Meena Kumari, a blind person, finds himself thrown out of her home. Here she is seen singing a song where she is asking the God to show mercy on blinds.

The song is sung by Lata and it is written by Bharat Vyas. The picturisatio is moving and the lyrics even more so. I am totally in agreement with the line of the song that goes

kisi bande ko yoon majboor na kar
dene ko to de de har dukhdaa
ye aankhen magar benoor na kar

which means- “Subject a person to all kind of misery, but do not deprive him of his sight.”

Indeed, those who have sight and who suffer from miseries should think of those do not even have sight. Then one’s misely will certainly appear quite trivial and manageable.

Music of this song is composed by Hemant Kumar.


Song-Andhhon se dayaa karnaa daataa (Sahaaraa) (1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics- Bharat Vyas, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

andhon pe dayaa karnaa daataa
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
iss jholi ko bharnaa daata
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
andhon pe dayaa karnaa daataa
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam

chhin jaati hai jinki ye jyoti
rah jaate hain thokar khaane ko
chhin jaati hai jinki ye jyoti
rah jaate hain thokar khaane ko
lut jaati hai unki sab khushiyaan
gham rahtaa hai dil bahlaane ko
gham rahtaa hai dil bahlaane ko
andhon pe dayaa karnaa daataa
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
iss jholi ko bharnaa daata
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam

hamse na churaao yoon aankhen
is dharti hi ki santaan hain ham
hamse na churaao yoon aankhen
is dharti hi ki santaan hain ham
mohtaaj sahi laachaar sahi
phir bhi to arre insaan hain ham
phir bhi to arre insaan hain ham
andhon pe dayaa karnaa daataa
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
iss jholi ko bharnaa daata
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam

ai maalik tu apni duniyaa mein
kisi bande ko yoon majboor na kar
ai maalik tu apni duniyaa mein
kisi bande ko yoon majboor na kar
dene ko to de de har dukhdaa
ye aankhen magar benoor na kar
ye aankhen magar benoor na kar
andhon pe dayaa karnaa daataa
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
iss jholi ko bharnaa daata
apni aankhon ki tumko qasam
