Aaj Gora huaa re bairaagi

Posted on: August 26, 2011


“Chakradhaari” (1954) is a religious /mythological movie about Gora, a potter who lived in the present day Maharashtra in the 13th century. He became a leading Saint of the area and he was a contemporary of the other Saints of Maharashtra viz Saint Dnyaneshwar and Namdeo.

What I love about the music of Hindi movies is that they incorporate elements of Indian music from various parts of the country, and not necessarily from the part where the story belongs to.

Here Gora is singing a bhajan where he annouces that he has become a bairaagi , viz he has renounced the world. The bhajan is sung in Baul style (a folk music style of Bengal) and it sounds so beautiful when sung by the saintly voice of Hemant Kumar. Lyrics of Pradeep are simply fantastic. Avinash Vyas, who himself was from Gujrat and was adept in the folk music of Gujrat shows his versatility in composing this wonderful Bangla style composition.

Listening to this song is a divine experience.

I have been able to get much of the lyrics right, but I still got stuck at a few places. I request our readers with keener ears to help by pointing out the correct words at the appropriate places.

Song-Aaj gora huaa re bairaagi (Chakradhaari) (1954) singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-Avinash Vyas

aaj gora huaa re bairaagi re
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi

arre ho

aaj maati huyi hai re sona
aaj maati huyi hai re sona
ud gayi re dhoop
ho gaya re saaf
ud gayi re dhoop
ho gaya re saaf
mere man ka darpan dhaari(?)
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi re
ae ae
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi

dekho maayaa thha toot (??) gaya deraa
aa aa aa
gaya hai andhera
huaa hai sawera
mita hai re andhera
jaaga hai bhaag mera re
maine prabhu ki nagariya ki paayi dagariyaa
prabhu ki nagariya ki paayi dagariyaa
duniya se door daala deraa re
arre ho ho ho
main to Hari ka huaa re anuraagi
ee ee ee ee ee ee
main to Hari ka huaa re anuraagi
laagi maayaa moh mein aagi
laagi maayaa moh mein aagi
sab asha trishnaa tyaagi
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi re
ae ae ae
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi

ae ae
meri soyi re aatmaa jaagi
andhiyaari bharan ki bhaagi
dharti se??? laagi re
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi re
ae ae ae
aaj gora huaa re bairaagi

Andhiyaari bharam ki bhaagi
Dharti ke dhani se lau laagi re

Dekho maaya ka toot gaya gheraa

Andhiyaari bharam ki bhaagi
Dharti ke dhani se lau laagi re

(i think ‘mere man ka darpan dhaari’ is correct)

Yes, listening to this song is a great pleasure and a divine experience itself.
Great composition !!
