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

Pareshaan hoon ki kyun meri pareshaani nahin jaatee

Posted on: April 1, 2011

I have been discussing the songs of “Parbat Pe Apna Dera” (1944) these days. This movie is a treasure of songs that have been forgotten with time, but which deserve to be much better known. And the fact that the artists singing these songs are those who were active in the pre golden era of Hindi movies, make these songs even more valuable.

Here is a superb song from “Parbat Pe Apna Dera” (1944). Lyrics by Deewan Sharar are just wonderful. The song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. This song is picturised on a pretty looking Vanmala, who is getting her hair dressed in the manner in which Indian women got their hair dressed at home not only in 1940s, but till 1970s too, where the lady would be seated on the dressing table, and another lady (servant or relative) would do her hair while the lady would look on in the mirror. And in case it is a scene is Hindi movies, the lady would use to opportunity to sing a lovely song. I can recall a few more “dressing table” songs that are nice to listen to. That gives me an idea. I should have a “dressing table” category of songs in this blog. 🙂

And here is another sweet “dressing table” song that I have discussed in the past-Piyaa aiso jiyaa mein samaay gayo re (Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulaam)

And that reminds me. Ladies those days used to have long lustrous hair even though all these hair products that one sees on TV were not available those days.

Vasant Desai is the music director of this song from “Parbat pe Apna Deraa” (1944).

Here is this gem from the past. And this song sounds as fresh and new as it must have sounded when this song was first released in 1940s.



Pareshaan hoon ke kyun meri pareshaani nahin jaati (Parbat Pe Apna Dera) (1944) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Deewan Sharar,MD-Vasant Desai


pareshaan hoon
pareshaan hoon
ki kyun meri pareshaani nahin jaatee
pareshaan hoon
ladakpan to gayaa par
meri naadaanee nahin jaatee
ladakpan to gayaa par
meri naadaanee nahin jaatee
main hairaan hoon
ki kyun aankhon ki hairaanee nahin jaatee
pareshaan hoon

khalaawat hai muhabbat ki
khalaawat hai muhabbat ki
ya lajjat hai ye hasrat ki
kasak kiski hai donon mein
ke pehchaani nahin jaati
pareshaan hoon

yehi meri tamanna hai
mujhe barbaad rahne do
mujhe barbaad rahne do
magar dil ki bhi har ik baat to maani nahin jaati
magar dil ki bhi har ik baat to maani nahin jaati
pareshaan hoon
ki kyun meri pareshaani nahin jaati
pareshaan hoon
