Yahaan raat kisi ki rotey katey

Posted on: June 15, 2011


The experiences of listening to songs sung by different singers are different. When one listens to a song sung by Mukesh, one expects a song that one would begin to hum as soon as one listens to it. One also expects the fabled Midas touch of Mukesh in full flow which ensured that most songs sung by Mukesh became popular.

Here is a Mukesh song sung for a B grade movie called “Jai Bhawaani” (1961). The song is picturised on Manhar Desai and Jaishree Gadkar and only Manhar Desai gets to lip sync in this song.

This superbly sung song will quickly grow up on the listeners as happened with me the very first time I listened to this song a few hours ago.

G S Nepali, a respected Hindi poet who tried his hands at lyrics writing too, is the lyricist of this song. Music is composed by S Mohinder.

This song is a hidden gem and it gives me great satisfaction to unearth it for the listeing pleasure of the readers.

One may notice that the audio and the video version of the song, while identical in the first and last para, differs in the middle para. I have included the entire lyrics here.

Song-Yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate ya chain se sote sote kate (Jai Bhawaani) (1961) Singer-Mukesh,Lyrics- G S Nepali, MD-S Mohinder

Lyrics

yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
na sote kate na rote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate

jo preet sanwaare wo na miley
jo sapne singaare wo na miley
bin maange dil ko dard miley
dil jisko pukaare wo na miley
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
na sote kate na rote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate

ulfat mein hai mitanaa reet meri
pinjare mein tadapti preet meri
panghat pe pahunchkar pyaasaa hoon
kyaa haar merii kyaa jeet meri
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
na sote kate na rote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate

dil bharaa-bharaa pyaase hain nayan
hai paas magar mushkil hai milan
panchhi hai akelaa soonaa chaman
aankhon mein nami hai dil mein jalan
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
na sote kate na rote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
taqdeer mein kaisi raat meri
na sote kate na rote kate
yahaan raat kisi ki rote kate
yaa chain se sote-sote kate
