Aaj nahin to kal bikhrenge ye baadal

Posted on: August 9, 2011


Kavi Pradeep was known for wearing his heart on his sleeves and writing songs that he strongly believed in. And he had the ability to influence people with his hard hitting and straight from the heart lyrics. He has written songs iconic patriotic songs at a time when India was still ruled by the British, and he has written songs that give vent to the feelings of anguish among the public in the aftermath of partition related violence. He has written songs about the feelings of despondency and people feel when things are not going their way. And he has also written inspirational songs that tell people to look at the future with optimism, irrespective of what has happened in the past.

Here is an inspirational song where the poet exhorts people to pick up the loose threads of their lives together and make a new beginning. The clouds of misery are bound to clear up and the dark night is bound to give way for a new dawn, he tells us.

This inspirational poetry has indeed been used by a few spiritual organisations (viz Brahmkumaris) as a motivational song, I am told.

Here is this inspirational song extraordinaire from “Naagmani” (1957). Geeta Dutt is the singer. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.


Song-Aaj nahin to kal bikhrenge ye baadal (Naagmani) (1957) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

Aaj nahin to kal,
bikhrenge ye baadal
O raat ke bhoole huye musaafir,
subah huyi ghar chal
ab ghar chal re

jod le phir se tooti mamta,
baandh le prem ki dori
zindgaani se door bhaagna
hai mann ki kamzori
ye sab dukh ke pal,
ek din jaayenge tal
O raat ke bhoole huye musaafir,
subah huyi ghar chal
ab ghar chal re

dhadhhak raha sansaar hamaara,
dooba bhaagya sitaara
kise pata hai, iske bheetar
kya hai Prabhu ka ishaara
chinta chhod sakal,
har mushqil hogi sehal
O raat ke bhoole huye musaafir,
subah huyi ghar chal
ab ghar chal re

jeewan ek sangraam hai Jogi,
sankat se kya darna
bhav-saagar mein bhanwar bichhi hain,
hans hans paar utarna
ab to zara sambhal,
tera jaayega bhaagya badal
O raat ke bhoole huye musaafir,
subah huyi ghar chal
ab ghar chal re

aaj nahin to kal,
bikhrenge ye baadal
O raat ke bhoole huye musaafir,
subah huyi ghar chal
ab ghar chal re
