Taaron ki nagri se chanda ne ek din

Posted on: April 29, 2011

“Waaris” (1954) has lovely songs in it.I have discussed three songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from this movie.

This song is sung by Suraiyya. It is picturised on herself and her son. From what I can make of the movie (from its songs) Suraiyya gets separated from her husband after a train accident, and as it happens, she was pregnant at that time and this son is born to her. In this song, she is trying to put her son to sleep by singing him a lullaby. What she ends up singing is not a lullaby but the sad tale of her life. Of course, the tale modifies the characters suitably, viz her beloved getting described as “Chaand” (moon) etc.

The song is sung by Suraiyya herself. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

It is a lesser known song from this movie that I heard for the first time just hours ago. And I quite liked this song.

Song-Taaron ki nagri se chanda ne ek din (Waaris) (1954) Singer-Suraiyya,Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Anil Biswas


taaron ki nagri se chanda ne ek din
dharti pe aane ki thhaani
sun mere munna kahaani
chanda ne pahne shabnam ke gahne
lehron pe aayi rawaani
sun mere munna kahaani

kabse khadi thhi vyaakul chakori
naina bichhaaye huye ??
dharti pe utra raja gagan ka
chupke se kirnon ke rath mein
aaye piyaa pyaare
pyaase ke dwaare
aaye piyaa pyaare
pyaase ke dwaare
phir bhi chakori na jaane
sun mere munna kahaani

ho o o
kahti thhi duniyaa
kahti thhi duniyaa
ho na sakegaa chandaa chakori ka mel
pal bhar mein dekho
roothhegi nindiyaa
tootegaa sapnon ka khel
dekho tootegaa sapnon ka khel
itne mein chanda badh kar yoon bolaa
itne mein chanda badh kar yoon bolaa
main raja tu meri rani
sun mere munna kahaani

lekin ye duniyaa
lekin ye duniyaa
premi ki bairan
haay lagaa dee nazariya
haay lagaa dee nazariya
aaye thhe jaise
waise hi ek din
sajni se bichhde saanwariyaa
sajni se bichhde sanwariyaa
ab tak khadi hai path par chakori
ab tak khadi hai path par chakori
lekar piyaa ki nishaani
jab tak na waapas aayegaa chandaa
jab tak na waapas aayegaa chandaa
poori na hogi kahaani
o munna
poori na hogi kahaani
so jaa
poori na hogi kahaani
so jaa
poori na hogi kahaani
