Awsar beeto jaat praani

Posted on: June 8, 2011


Most people do not value time as much as they value money. They do not realise that time, unlike money, continues to slip under our fingers irretrievably, every monent of our life. sixty minutes make an hour, and twentyfour such hours make a day. Thirty such days make a month, a couple of months make a season, six such seasons make a year, and with that one year is gone. Like this years continue to slip away. Most people waste their childhood in playing and their youth in carnal pleasures. And before they realise it, they have wasted their whole life without doing anything worthwhile ! They have wasted all the opportunities that came their way !

I am a form believer in this fact that one should make the most of ones time, and I was thrilled to find a song that actually talks about this philosophy. And such a philosophical song came quite early in the history of Hindi movies.

Here is this great gem of a song which is from “Pooran Bhagat” (1933). “Awsar beeto jaat praani” (Opportunity is continuing to slip away,dear creature) is a fantastic philosophical song. It is sung by none other than our beloved K L Saigal. R C Boral is the music director.

This remarkable song is written by Basant Kumar Dubey who was a discovery of R C Boral. Unfortunately, this was the only movie of Basant Kumar Dubey as he met with an untimely death soon after this movie. Indeed, the time ran out abruptly for him.

Here is this forgotten gem, that needs to be heard by all music lovers.


Song-Awsar beeto jaat praani (Pooran Bhagat) (1933) Singer-K L Saigal, Lyrics-Basant Kumar Dubey, MD-R C Boral

haan
awsar beeto jaat praani tero
awsar beeto jaat praani tero
awsar beeto jaat praani tero
awsar beeto jaat
haan
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
tero ausar beeto jaat

saath minute guzre gayaa ghantaa
aaa aaa aaa
saath minute guzre gayaa ghantaa
chaubees mein din-raat
pal-pal kar ke chheen hot hai
pal-pal kar ke chheen hot hai
ik aawat ik jaat praani tero
ik aawat ik jaat praani tero
awsar beeto jaat
haan
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
tero ausar beeto jaat

chhe ritu mil kar baras hot hai
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
chhe ritu mil kar baras hot hai
ritu-ritu mein dou maas
maas-maas mein tees diwas hai
maas-maas mein tees diwas hai
gayi sandhyaa aayi raat praani tero
gayi sandhyaa aayi raat praani tero
gayi sandhyaa aayi raat praani tero
gayi sandhyaa aayi raat praani tero
awsar beeto jaat
haan
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
tero awsar beeto jaat

baalakpan gayaa khel-kood mein
jauban jubati saath
baalakpan gayaa khel-kood mein
jauban jubati saath
briddh bhayo kachhu ban nahin aawe
briddh bhayo kachhu ban nahin aawe
kaanpat tero haath praani tero
ausar beeto jaat
haan
is kaal ki heraa-pheri mein
tero ausar beeto jaat

As a lyric this is pretty lame, giving, as it does, a list of measurement of time and little else.

Lyrics may be simple, but the message is invaluable.

Thanks for the appreciation.

Wonderful-atul

Is the above Atul someone different ?

Yes, it is some other Atul. So you can differentiate me from him by looking at the picture of my glass wearing pets at the right.

Thats exactly what I did.

Thank you so much. This site is a treasure.
K.L. Saigal was the greatest singer of the century and this site keeps his legacy alive and provides details previously unknown.
Thank you again.

‘saunpat’ in the last stanza is actually ‘kanpat’. Kindly correct.
