O jaane waale tujhko ham yaad kyun na aaye

Posted on: January 7, 2011

I receive hundreds of farmaishes for songs that are not yet posted in this blog. Many of these farmaishes are for songs that are well known and/or relatively easily avaiable. Sometimes though, there are farmaishes for songs that are very difficult to find. There are cases where the farmaish giver was desperately seeking the song for years and even decades without success. It is highly satisfying for me when sometimes I am actually able to locate these elusive songs after some nice detective work.

Here is another song rare song. The farmaish sender Suresh Maloo had mentioned that he was desperately searching for this song from “Banu” (1955) which went “O jaane waale tujhko ham yaad kyun na aaye” and he thought that I was resurceful enough to be able to help.

This naturally aroused my curiosity. I began by doing the obvious thing viz searching in google, youtube etc, but ther you only get the song “o jaane waale ho sake to laut ke aana”. Most search engines cannot help you if you are seeking a rare song. This song was clearly not available in any sites. If songs are not available, then one needs to upload it. I tend to stumble upon songs during my searches for them, and I accidentally stumbled upon this rare song too.

This song is from “Bahu” (1955) and not from “Banu” (1955) as the reader had mentioned. There has not been any movie called “Banu”.

I listened to this song and I found that the song is a nice one. It is sung by Lata. S H Bihari is the lyricist and Hemant Kumar is the music director.

This is a nice song to listen to.

So here is this rare song from “Bahu” (1955) on the farmaish of Suresh Maloo.

Song-O jaane waale tujhko ham yaad kyun na aaye (Bahu) (1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar


jaane waale

o jaane waale tujhko
ham yaad kyun na aaye
o jaane waale tujhko
ham yaad kyun na aaye
ik pal teri judaayi
dil ko mere na bhaaye
ham yaad kyun na aaye
o jaane waale tujhko
ham yaad kyun na aaye

poochhega jab zamaanaa
hamse tera thhikaanaa
hamse tera thhikaanaa
batlaao kyaa karenge
duniya se ham bahaanaa
duniya se ham bahaanaa
taane sunenge sabke
royenge munh chhupaaye
ham yaad kyun na aaye

kaise chalegi hamse
ye zindagi ki naiyya
kaise chalegi hamse
ye zindagi ki naiyya
kyun chhod kar chale ho
toofaan mein khiwaiyya
majhdhaar mein hamaari
naiyya na doob jaaye
ham yaad kyun na aaye

dooba gagan mein sooraj
lo chhaa gayaa andhera
lo chhaa gayaa andhera
kyaa jaane zindagi mein
aayegaa kab saweraa
aayegaa kab saweraa
taqdeer kab tumhaari
soorat hamen dikhaaye
ham yaad kyun na aaye
o jaane waale tujhko
ham yaad kyun na aaye
o jaane waale tujhko
ham yaad kyun na aaye

lovely song-never heard it before.
Please note that it gets cut-off abruptly at the end and spoils the beauty of the song. If possible, please fix it.

thanks and salaams

Now I have provided link to the full song.


ye geet kahan suna hai aisa lagata hai kyonki dimag ke ek konemen ‘tube light ho rahi hai’ aur shayad aisa gana or tarj or sangeet suni hai. shayad yaad aaneke baad koshish karunga ki kya hai. lekin geet bahot achha hai.
