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

Pyaari pyaari ye sukhad maatribhoomi apni

Posted on: June 26, 2011


“Shakuntala”(1943) is a mythological movie that had actors like Chandra Mohan, Jayshree, Ameena, Nimbalkar, Nana Palsikar etc in it. This story was based on Sasnkrit story “Aabhigyan Shakuntalam” written by the great Sanskrit author Kalidas.

Here is a lovely song from this movie which tells the tale of how Shakuntala was born. Sage Vishwamitra does tapasya (penance) for long duration. Whenever some sage undertakes such tapasya, Indra, the king of gods is afraid that his throne may be usurped by that person, so he arranges to distract him from his tapasya. He does that by sending Apsaras. In this case, he sends Menaka and others. Menaka succeeds in her mission and Vishwamitra’s tapasya goes for a toss.The union of Vishwamitra and Menaka results in the birth of a girl child.

Vishwamitra resumes his tapasya and Menaka goes back to report to Indra, while the child is abandoned. Sage Kanva finds out about the abandoned child, rescues her and brings her up as his own child, and it is this child that is known as Shakuntala.

The story of Shakuntala is told in this song. The song is written by a lyricist called Ratan Piya. I have no idea about this lyricist and I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us more about this person. There are several voices in this song. According to earthmusic, this song is sung by Parshuram,Zohrabai Ambalewali and Jayshree, but youtube mentions that the song also has the voice of Amirbai Karnataki. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the singers as well as on the actors on whom this song is picturised.
PS-I have been now informed by Mr Arunkumar Deshmuksh that only three names are mentioned in the record of this song and the name of Amirbai Karnataki does not figure in that.

This wonderful song is composed by Vasant Desai.


Song-Pyaari pyaari ye sukhad matribhoomi apni(Shakuntala) (1943) Singers-Parshuram, Zohrabai Ambalewali, Jayshree, Lyrics-Ratan Piya, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

pyaari pyaari
pyaari pyaari
ye sukhad matribhoomi apni
ye sukhad matribhoomi apni
pyaari pyaari
pyaari pyaari

Aaryavart hai sunaam jiska
Aaryavart hai sunaam jiska
shobhaa jag se nyaari
shobhaa jag se nyaari
pyaari pyaari

ek anek bhaye jab milke
teerath atal pukaari
aaj hai Vishwamitra ke jinse
aap tapasya haari
kathhin tapasya dekh rishi ki
Indra dev gaye haari
tap todan Surpur se bheji
sughar Menaka Naari
sughar Menaka

aa aa aa
aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa
aa aa aa
main prem ki pyaasi
nit prem ki pyaasi
bani ban waasi
ban mein tumhaare aayi
ban mein tumhaare aayi
nain khol dekho bairaagi
nain khol dekho bairaagi
bairaagan kyaa laayi
bairaagan kyaa laayi
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

main rukhmayi(?)
tum gyaan jayi
main vilaas
tum vanwaasi
prem bina sab gyaan adhhooraa
prem bina sab gyaan adhhooraa
mat bhoolo sanyaasi
mat bhoolo sanyaasi

aa aa aa
aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa
aa aa aa
ek prem ki pyaasi bani banwaasi
ban mein tumhaare aayi
nain khol dekho bairaagi
bairaagan kyaa laayi
bairaagan kyaa laayi
aa aa aa

Indra ki mohini
sohni maa bani
ek kanyaa ka sundar use phal milaa
lage tap mein aur
wo chali swarg ko
maar man aur patthar sa man ko banaa
jaane waale to sab apni raah chale
ek musaafir nayaa kiskaa mehmaan rahaa
Maharshi Kanva ne dekha daanaa liye
ek panchhi jo udkar kahin ko chala
lekar pooraa pataa
haal dekha kabhi
aaya keechad mein sundar kamal padaa
jisne maaya mein phir se phansna unhen
aaj banana padaa uska paalak pitaa
wo Shakun se pali
bani Shakuntala
bholi aashram mein jaa
jaise kalplata
aa aa aa
aa
aa aa aa aa
aa

ho ho ho
ho ho ho
ho ho ho

he he he he he
he he he he he
he he

Kanva rishi ke aashram mein wo
vandevi sukumari
sewa moorat ban kar dole
santan ko sukhkaari
santan ko sukhkaari
wo hi kanya Shakuntala
jin Vishwamitra vikaari
Kanwa muni kar paalan uska
apni kari dulaari
aisi tapaswi jinki karni
oonchi jagat manjhaari
unki kanya kare na kaise jag mein naam ujaari

band karo meri vipda bhari janm kahaani

Atul ji,
I have this song with me and there is no name of Amirbai Karnataki on it. Only 3 names,Jayashree,Parshuram and Zohrabai are mentioned.
Something about this movie.SHAKAUNTALA was the FIRST movie of RAJKAMAL CHITRAMANDIR, V.Shantaram’s own studio/production company.During this picture,Shantaram married Jayashree Kamulkar-the film’s Heroine.
Shakuntala was so successful at the Box office that it ran for 104 weeks at Swastik cinema in Bombay.
Interestingly,Madan Mohan had acted in this film and his name appears in the credits at 10th number !

Note: Interested readers may also see the comments on another song of this movie’Jeevan ki naav na dole’,posted on 9-6-2011.

Atul ji/Arun ji,

I am convinced that the voice from 2:41 to 5:03 is that of Ameerbai Karnataki.
