Preet mein hai jeewan jokhan

Posted on: May 17, 2011

“Dushman” (1939) is a movie that had K L Saigal, Kamlesh Kumari, Nawab, Najmul, Prithviraj Kapoor, Nimmo, Devbala, Leela Das etc.

I have discussed three K L Saigal songs from this movie that are relatively well known among fans of old songs.

Here is the fourth song from this movie. Personally I became aware of this song only just now.What a superb singing by K L Saigal. Those were the days, when the orchestra was bare minimum and the singer had to carry the song on the strength of his voice. He/she had nowhere to hide if his/her voice had limitations. Here the orchestra consists on a harmonium and perhaps a tabla. K L Saigal’s voice is so refined, so powerful, and so well groomed that the song magically transports you to the era when this song was recorded.

Aarzoo Lucknowi is the lyricist and Pankaj Mullick is the music director. The lyrics, the music and the singing may seem simple and effortless, but that is not really so.Some great and rare talents were at work in this song.

What a song ! It is lovely to listen to songs like this where the lyrics and the vocals rule, rather than the orchestra.



Song-Preet mein hai jeewan jokhon(Dushman) (1939) Singer-K L Saigal, Lyrics-Aarzoo Lucknowi, MD-Pankaj Mullick


preet mein hai jeewan jokhon
ki jaise kolhoo mein sarson
preet mein hai jeewan jokhon

bhor suhaani chanchal baalak ladkaayi dikhlaaye
haath se baithaa gadhe khilaune paanv se todat jaaye
bhor suhaani chanchal baalak ladkaayi dikhlaaye
haath se baithaa gadhe khilaune paanv se todat jaaye
wo to hai,
wo to hai ik moorakh baalak tu to nahin na raam
wo to hai,
wo to hai ik moorakh baalak tu to nahin na raam
aap banaaye aap bigaade
ye nahin teri shaan
ye nahin teri shaan

Wow! What a fine narration, appropriate to the beauty of the song! Thanks for the lyric. Will want to visit you more often.


It is ‘tu to nahin nadaan’ please correct.


Video clip of the song is now available.


‘na raam’ is actually ‘nadan’ which is also in consonance with ‘shan’ in the last line.
