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

Ab main kaah karoon kit jaaun

Posted on: June 10, 2011


Just like Radio Ceylon used to play a K L Saigal song every morning at the stroke of 8 AM in the days gone by, I too am discussing a K L Saigal song every morning. Unlike Radio Ceylon, who re cycled the same usual songs, I am discussing “new” Saigal songs every day. And it is interesting to notice that K L Saigal sang songs that many people may not have heard before.

Here is a less known (for me) song from “Dharti Mata” (1938). Pt Sudarshan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pankaj Mullick. It is safe to assume that the song was picturised on K L Saigal himself.


Song-Ab main kaah karoon kit jaaun (Dharti Mata) (1938) Singer-K L Saigal, Lyrics-Pt Sudarshan, MD-Pankaj Mullick

Lyrics

ab main kaah karoon
kit jaaun
main kaah karoon kit jaaun
ab main kaah karoon
kit jaaun main kaah karoon kit jaaun

chhoot gayaa
chhoot gayaa
chhoot gayaa
sab saath sahaaraa
apne bhi kar gaye kinaaraa
chhoot gayaa sab saath sahaaraa
apne bhi kar gaye kinaaraa
ik baazi mein sab kuchh haaraa
aashaa haari himmat haari
aashaa haari himmat haari
ab kyaa daanv lagaaun
main kaah karoon kit jaaun
ab main kaah karoon kit jaaun
main kaah karoon kit jaaun
jo paudhaa seenchaa murjhaayaa
toot gayaa jo mahal banaayaa
jo paudhaa seenchaa murjhaayaa
toot gayaa jo mahal banaayaa
bujh gayaa jo bhi diyaa jalaayaa
man andhiyaaraa
jag andhiyaaraa
jyot kahaan se laaun main
main kaah karoon kit jaaun

I do not understand what Mr Atul means when he says, ‘It is safe to assume that the song was picturised on K L Saigal himself.’ Saigal never playbacked for any other actor. All his songs were filmed on him. In some blogs I have seen some contributors calling ‘Saigal was the first playback singer’. Saigal was a singer-actor, not a playback singer.
