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

Baithhi hoon main nain bichhaaye

Posted on: July 8, 2011


When one watches Hindi movies of the past, including their songs, and compare them with the present time, one notices that people back then had too much of time and patience. Means of instant communications were not there. People (namely the lady or parents) who will have their beloved husband/son gone to a distant place for work,will not hear from him for years, and they will patiently wait. One can not imagine people to have this kind of time and patience in today’s world.

Here is a song from an obscure movie called ‘Hamari Manzil” (1949). Here the lady is waiting for her beloved to arrive back. Seasons come and go, and she waits patiently, but there is so sign of her beloved’s arrival, and there is no information either.

Just thinking of this scenario cantoday boggle one’s mind, but that is how it was those days.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.


Song-Baithhi hoon main nain bichhaaye (Hamari Manzil) (1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

baithhi hoon main nain bichhaaye
dil mein dil ka dard chhupaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
baithhi hoon main nain bichhaaye
dil mein dil ka dard chhupaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye

rut basant aayi kheton mein
phool khile sarson ke
milte dekhe in aankhon ne
bichhde huye barson ke
mere man ki murjhaayi kaliyon ko kaun khilaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye

dhoom machaati holi aayi
neeley peeley rangon waali
kisi ki choli laal ho gayi
kisi ki saari kaali
pichkaari bhari khadi rahi main
piyaa ki aas lagaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye

rimjhim karta saawan aayaa
mast ghataayen laayaa
sab ne jhoole prem hindoley
hans hans saawan gaaya
jhoolaa daaley khadi rahi main
piyaa ki aas lagaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye

deewaali ki raat chiraagon ka ik mela dekha
us mele mein maine apna jiyaa akela dekhaa
jiyaa jalaaye khadi rahi main
piyaa ki aas lagaaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
pardesi saajan na aaye
