Meghwaa gagan beech jhaanke

Posted on: December 17, 2010


In mainstream Hindi movies of the golden era, there used to be a dance situation in a night club, which was tailor made for a cabarat dance by Helen. Movie makers whose movies were based on pre cabarat dance eras (viz Historical/mythological/Fantasy movies)also found dance situations where Helen and other dacing ladies were shown to dance in the courts of Kings.

When it came to Indian mythological stories, there was no dearth of such dancing opportunities. In old Indian mythology, people who coveted power (Sages or Kings) would go to jungle and begin to perform “Tapasya” (penance). Lord Indra, King of the gods would begin to worry since he would feel that the person was out to usurp his chair. So he would seek to prevent the man from completing his “tapasya”. His standard method of disturbing the tapasya was to send one or more “apsara” who would try to seduce the man and lead him astray. This was a role tailormade for the likes of Helen.

Here is just this kind of a song from the movie “Harishchandra Taramati” (1963). Here in this song, we find King Harishchandra (played by Prithviraj Kapoor) dong tapasya and an apsara (played by Helen) trying to distract him through her song and dance.

Here is this song from “Harishchandra Taramati” (1963). It is sung by Lata. Pradeep is the lyricist and music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

meghwa gagan beech jhaanke
meghwa gagan beech jhaanke

paayal jhanjhanaake

meghwa gagan beech jhaanke
jhuke baadal
sakhi naacho
paayal jhanjhanaake

meghwa gagan beech jhaanke

chaaron oar dekho
jaadoo chhaayaa
chaaron oar dekho
jaadoo chhaayaa
lachakne do guyiyaan
gori gori kaayaa
chaaron oar dekho
jaadoo chhaayaa
bajaa lo jhaanjhan
rang mein aake
jhoomo re magan
chhan chhan bal khaake
meghwaa gagan beech jhaanke
jhuke baadal
sakhi naacho
naacho ri
jhuke baadal
sakhi naacho
paayal jhanjhanaake
jhanjhanaake
meghwa gagan beech jhaanke

sara ga sa

badi pyaari belaa aayi aali
badi pyaari belaa aayi aali
zaraa leke thumka naacho
de de taali
badi pyaari belaa aayi aali
kateele nayan
karke baanke
rijhaalo sajan ko
naina milaake
meghwa gagan beech jhaanke
jhuke baadal
sakhi naacho
naacho ri
jhuke baadal
sakhi naacho
paayal jhanjhanaake
jhanjhanaake
meghwa gagan
meghwa gagan
meghwa gagan beech jhaanke
