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

Main gaaun tu chup ho jaa

Posted on: April 8, 2011


Though I am familiar with V Shantaram’s movie “Do Aankhen Baarah Haath” (1957), I have not watched this movie and I am not aware of all its songs, except the better known songs. I was not aware of this song.

This is a lori (lullaby) song which is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Sandhya who is shown singing this song to her small kid.

The mother has many things to worry about which have made her sad. Her sadness gets reflected in this song. But she makes an effort to ensure that her sadness does not deprive her baby from a lullaby which he rightfully deserves to listen to.

This song is written by Bharat Vyas. Music is composed by Vasant Desai. It is a lovely lullaby as most lullabies of those days tended to be.

PS-Sudhir tells me that the kid does not belong to Sandhya. He is the son of a convict undergoing jail sentence, and the mother of the kid passes away, and so Sandhya (a toy seller) takes care of the child.


Song-Main gaaun tu chup ho jaa (Do Aankhen Baarah Haath)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

ho ho ho ho
ho
ho ho ho ho
ho
main gaaun tu chup ho ja
main jaagoon re tu so ja
main gaaun tu chup ho ja
main jaagoon re tu so ja

dharati ki kaaya soyee
ambar ki maaya soyee
jhil-mil taaron ke neeche
sapnon ki chhaaya soyee
main dhoondhoon
ho ho ho
main dhoondhoon re tu kho ja
main jaagoon re tu so ja

ho ho ho ho
ho
ho ho ho ho
ho
jaane hawayen kahaan khoyee
saagar ki bhi lahren soyee
duniya ka sab dukhda bhar ke
duniya ka sab dukhda bhar ke
teri do ankhiyaan re kyun royee
aansoon ke
ho ho ho
aansoon ke shabnam dho jaa
main jaagoon re tu so ja

ho ho ho ho ho
ho
ho ho ho ho ho
ho
aansoon tere mujh ko de de
badle men meri hansi le le
tera to man sukh se khele
mera hriday tera dukh jhele
naye beej
ho ho ho
naye beej khushi ke bo jaa
main jaagoon re tu so jaa
main gaaun tu chup ho jaa
main jaagoon re tu so jaa

ho ho ho ho ho
ho
ho ho ho ho ho
ho
ho ho ho ho ho

Atul ji,

A small detail about the characters. In this movie, Sandhya is not the mother of the kids that she is singing to. As you will recall, this movie is about rehabilitation of criminals. V Shantaram is a police officer who takes on the project to rehabilitate hardened criminals by taking them to a village and have them work on a farm, under his supervision. The children belong to one of the convicts in that group. The wife of this convict passes away suddenly and the children are left without any support system. The police officer agrees to let them live on the farm.

Sandhya is a toy seller from the local village, who gets involved with this farm, on account of the children, to start with.

Atul ji,

One other small correction. In the write up, please correct the name of the MD from Vasant Vyas to Vasant Desai.
