Insaan jo rotaa hai to rotaa hi rahegaa

Posted on: July 8, 2011


“Ladki” (1953) is a movie starring Bharat Bhushan,Vyjyantimala,Kishore Kumar, Anjali devi etc. I find, much to my own surprise, that I have discussed as many as four songs from this movie ! I also notice that I have mentioned C Ramchadra as the music director for those songs, but in the song that I am going to discuss here, R Sudarshan-Dhaniram are listed as the music directors ! I request my knowledgeable readers to help clarify this confusion of music directors.

This song is a harmonium song as well as a beggar song. The picturisation shows a blind beggar singing this song. In this song, God is castigated for inaction
insaan jo rotaa hai to rotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa

(Human beings will continue to suffer,
God will continue to sleep up above)

Krishna Goel, a fogotten male playback singer, sings this song. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. The music, as mentioned above , is by R Sudarshan-Dhaniram, though I find myself mentioning the name of C Ramchandra as the music director for the other songs of this movie. After the matter is clarified, I may have to change the credits a bit.

There was some confusion about the gender of the song. As it is, the name Krishn is a male name and Krishna is a female name, but in English, even Krishn tends to get written as Krishna and as a result, the gender of the person called Krishna often becomes difficult to judge. There is another singer, called Krishna Bose, who is a female, for instance. The singer Krishna Goel is a male playback singer, though.

This is a lovely song that was lyring forgotten all these days. I considere myself lucky that I was able to discover this forgotten gem a few days back.

Lyrics

insaan jo
rotaa hai
to rotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
sotaa hi rahegaa
insaan jo rotaa hai to rotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
sotaa hi rahegaa

chhote bhi bade bhi sabhi Bhagwaan ke bete
chhote bhi bade bhi sabhi Bhagwaan ke bete
phir kisne banaaye hain ye taqdeer ke hete
phir kisne banaaye hain ye taqdeer ke hete
sejon pe kahin
sejon pe kahin phool kahin paanv mein kaante
Bhagwaan ne kis reet se insaan hain baante
insaan hain baante

duniyaa mein ye anyaay to hotaa hi rahegaa
duniyaa mein ye anyaay to hotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
sotaa hi rahegaa
insaan jo rotaa hai to rotaa hi rahegaa
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
sotaa hi rahegaa

duniya mein agar chhoti badi zaat na hoti
duniya mein agar chhoti badi zaat na hoti
mehlon mein ye din
kutiyon mein ye raat na hoti
mehlon mein ye din
kutiyon mein ye raat na hoti
ik baap ki
ik baap ki
aulaad mein ye fark na hota
yoon khoon mein sansaar
kabhi gark na hotaa
kabhi gark na hotaa
hota ye chalaa aayaa hai
hota hi rahega
hota ye chalaa aayaa hai
hota hi rahega
Bhagwaan to aakaash pe sotaa hi rahegaa
sotaa hi rahegaa

Atul ji,

LADKI(1953) had 2 Music directors,namely C.Ram and R.Sudarshanam-Dhaniram duo.
Songs like Tod ke duniya ki deewar and mere watan se achha(both Lata),Sajna aaja(Lata with chorus),Aurat na ho to(Kishore & others) were done by C.Ramchandra.The rest were by the duo.
There was a song sung by actor OMPRAKASH-Wah wah aurat se nagin bhali under the duo’s baton.
Another song of Geeta dutt-aye aankh ro ke… was presumably by C.Ramchandra,but no name on the record was seen.

what a song nobody till now has known or discovered the secret between music and love what lies behind the curtain who always left a print on lovers heart that till now nobody had found a remedy for such and nobody can deny or goes again it because music is the soul and love is the body.
