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

Jai Saraswati

Posted on: April 16, 2011


“Kavi Kalidas” (1959) is a movie based on the life of the great Sanskrit language poet called Kalidas. This movie has songs that are naturally in Sanskritised Hindi. And these songs sound so sweet to the ears.

This movie has several songs in it. Here is a song that is basically a prayer to Godess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning. In this song, Bharat Bhushan (playing Kalidas) prays to the Godess to bless him with the ability to make it big in his chosen field of literature.

The song is sung by Manna Dey. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. There are many words in the song where I have got stuck. I request my knowledgeable readers to fill up the missing words.

S N Tripathi is the music director of this song which sounds so sweet and inspirational to listen to.


Song-Jai Saraswati (Kavi Kalidas) (1959) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

Jai Saraswati
jai Saraswati
shakti de sati
tej de gati
bhed de mati
aaj kantth se phoot padey maa
amrit si vaani
vardaan roop mein gyaan daan de
he veenapaani
jai jai saraswati
shakti de sati

bhaav bhaarti
karey aarti
vidya karey pranaam
swayam kalpana
upmaaon ki
varsha kare lalaam
praapya hon mere chaatu chhand
hon bandi aatthon yaam
meri lekhni mein jhoome
prakriti saari abhiraam
kaavya kunj ho
madhur gunj ho
pranayr punj ho
bhaav runj ho
shabd shabd gunjaar uthhe
ghar ghar mein kalyaani
vardaan roop mein gyaan daan de
he veenaapaani

jai jai Saraswati
shakti de sati
jai jai Saraswati
shakti de sati
jai jai Saraswati
jai jai Saraswati
jai jai Saraswati

kamal naal sam ksheenn kati
bhauhen saam kamaan
kanak chhuri si kaamini
maare chitwan baan

Atul ji,

Wonderful song, what we would call in Hindi, “alankrit kavya”. Beautiful use of words and the music is so well paced.

I played this song multiple times, and given below is the lyrics as I can decipher them. Please review, and use as suitable.
