Dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo

Posted on: August 23, 2011


I have not watched the movie called “Talaaq” (1958) but from its songs and some online reading up (both could be misleading 😀 ) leads me to believe that Rajendra Kumar and Kamini Kadam get married, have a child (Honey Irani) then fight among themselves and then file for divorce. In all these, the child finds himself kicked around like a football. when the warring duo finally reconcile with each other and search for their child, they find out that he is not to be found. For all they know, he has become an orphan and who knows, he could well have ended up in an orphanage.

At this moment, this song commences in which orphan kids of an orphanage are singing this poignant song on streets where they are seking alms as well as love that they as human kids are their birthright.

It is a very poignant and moving song, and I for one cannot bear to watch a picturisation like this, even though I know fully well that it is a movie and that this picturisation took place more than half a century ago. The idea that kids should be deprived of parental love and care and be abaddoned at the streets is too painful for me to watch and witness.

Forget human kids, I feel that abandoning dogs at streets instead of keeping them as pets and then calling these dogs street dogs is also inhuman, because dogs had accepted human being as their masters in the past, and so it is their birthright to find shelter with a human family.

Coming to this song, this moving song is sung by Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle and Aarti Mukherji. Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

My message is “care for human kids, and care for animal kids, and the world is a much more enjoyable place to live”.


Song-Dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo (Talaaq) (1958) Singer-Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle, Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

ae duniyaa ke maa baap suno
ye desh hai kishan kanhaiyya ka
ye bhoomi wahi hai
pyaar jahaan
lutata thha Jashoda maiyya ka
lekin is desh mein hi ab to
aise bhi abhaage hote hain
hansne ki umar mein rote hain

dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo
maan baap hamaare
bhoole ho jinhen
ham wohi bachche hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo
maan baap hamaare
bhoole ho jinhen
ham wohi bachche hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo

ham hain wohi ye
roothh gayi jinse deewaali
ham hain wohi ye
roothh gayi jinse deewaali
wo phool hain
jinse yahaan naaraaz hai maali
ham wo hain jo pyaase rahe
Ganga ke kinaare
bhoole ho jinhen
ham wohi bachhe hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo

ho ho ho
jo ho sake tumse to
zaraa pyaar hamen do
jo ho sake tumse to
zaraa pyaar hamen do
ham ro rahe hain
hansne ka adhikaar hamen do
pyaar hamen do
aangan mein tumhaare hain khade
haath pasaare
bhoole ho jinhe
ham wohi bachhe hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo

maiyya zara ek baar hamen paas bulaa lo
maiyya zara ek baar hamen paas bulaa lo
baapu hamen sansaar ki aandhi se bachaa lo
tumto hamaari aankh ka har aansoo chhupa le (?)
bhoole ho jinhe
ham wohi bachhe hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo
maan baap hamaare
bhoole ho jinhem
ham wohi bachhe hain tumhaare
dukhiyon pe kuchh reham karo

Atul ji,
TALAQ(1958) was written and produced by Pt.Mukharam Sharma and was Directed by Mahesh Kaul,an expert in such movies(i.e. movies based on husband wife relationships).
In this movie Indu(Kamini Kadam) is staying on the 4th floor of a building with her father.Ravi(Rajendra kumar),an engineer comes to stay in the ground floor flat.Love blooms and they get married,inspit of Indu’s father Moolchand(Radhakishen)’s initial resistence and subsequent consent.The couple gets a son Ashoo(Daisy Irani).
Indu’s father is a gambler and loses all his money.Due to his constant interference in their affairs,Ravi has arguements with Indu frequently and they decide to separate and file for divorce.All this is painful for the kid and to teach them a lesson he goes away.
This situation brings the couple nearer and they realise their mistake and the importance of adjustments,compromises and tolerance in life.In the end all is well.

Atul ji,
I remember a very interesting episode about a song of “TALAQ”(1958),
“Bigule baj raha hai azadi ka” written by Pradeep and sung by Manna Dey and Chorus.
One day,one mr.Kumar Kanta,then an announcer on Radio Ceylon played this song in a programme.This was a popular song in those days,and its last few lines are ” tumhe apni Kashmir ki raksha karni hai “.
After this song was played on ,next day there was a protest lodged by Pakistan with Ceylon Govt-directly to the Prime Minister,Sirimao Bandarnayake,complaining,how this song (with implied meening that kashmir belongs to India) is played by a Non Allied nation and that it was a hitch in Pak-Ceylon relationship.
Ceylon Govt. apologised and poor announcer Mr.Kumar Kant was summarily sacked from his job forthwith.
This was a matter of news in Times of India,that time.
Also,this is narrated by the journalist Raju Bharatan,a noted film music Expert,in one of his books too.

Arun ji,

As they say, politics indeed makes strange bedfellows.
I was not aware of this incident, and frankly, I am surprised that Ceylon govt gave in to such a politically motivated request.

Sudhir ji,
Indeed,strange are the ways of politics !
One must realise,however that early sixtees were the time when the ghost of Panchsheel and Non Aligned Nations’ league was riding on every member nation(Thanks to Pt.Nehru) and the other thing was,even Ceylon was just a 10 year old independent nation which did not want to allow a new controversy,when they had started getting internal troubles from LTTE already !
