Maangne se jo maut mil jaati is zamaane mein

Posted on: October 5, 2011


“Sunahre Qadam” (1966) is a B grade movie which was produced by Saraswati Kala Mandir and directed by Satish Nigam. this movie had Shashikala, Agha, Sabita Chatterjee, Randhir, Rehman etc in it. With such star cast, the movie deservedly had little takers.

This movie was the last movie of Bulo C Rani as a music director. Here is a song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Shashikala.

This melancholic song is wtitten by Mahendra Pran.

मांगने से जो मौत मिल जाती
कौन जीता इस जमाने में

If only leaving this world
Could be had for asking
None would prefer
To live in this world

दर्द होता ना बेकली होती
दम ना घुटता यूं वीराने में

Life would be free
Of aches and disquiet
And the life breath wouldn’t be suffocated
In the wilderness of desolation

“बेकली” = restlessness, disquiet, बेचैनी

आंसुओं की शमा से गर, ग़म की तारीकियाँ मिटती
कुछ तो खुशीओं की रौशनी होती, ज़िंदगी के इस फसाने में

Wonder it would have been
If the darkness of sorrows
Could be defeated with burning tears
May this sad saga of life
Have had a glow of happiness

“तारीकि” = darkness, अंधेरा
“आंसुओं की शमा” – if my tears could burn, and I could light a lamp with that flame, and if that flame could defeat the darkness of sorrows; I have a lifetime supply of tears that I would use.

aarzuon ke janaaze ko, le ke kaandhe pe hum ghoome
chal ke manzil jo aayi milne ko, hum hi na rahe is zamaane mein

Seems forever
Carrying on my shoulders
This bier of longings
That when, at long last
The destination itself came to me
I myself was no more in this world

‘Destination’ – the poet intends to say that when the time came for my longings to be realized.
The longings within were being carried as a bier, a coffin, for so long.
When the time came, and the fulfillment of my longings came to me at last,
My longings within themselves had died.

Song-Maangne se jo maut mil jaati (Sunahre Qadam)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Mahendra Pran, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

maangne se jo maut mil jaati
kaun jeetaa is zamaane mein
dard hota na bekali hoti,
dum na ghut’ta yoon veeraane mein
maangne se jo maut mil jaati
kaun jeetaa is zamaane mein

aansuon ki shamaa se gar
gham ki taareekiyaan mitati
aansuon ki shamaa se gar
gham ki taareekiyaan mitati
kuchh to khushiyon ki raushni hoti
zindagi ke is fasaane mein
maangne se jo maut mil jaati
kaun jeetaa is zamaane mein

aarzuon ke janaaze ko
le ke kaandhe pe hum ghoome
aarzuon ke janaaze ko
le ke kaandhe pe hum ghoome
chal ke manzil jo aayi milne ko
hum hi na rahe is zamaane mein
maangne se jo maut mil jaati
kaun jeetaa is zamaane mein

मांगने से जो मौत मिल जाती
कौन जीता इस जमाने में
दर्द होता ना बेकली होती
दम ना घुटता यूं वीराने में
मांगने से जो मौत मिल जाती
कौन जीता इस जमाने में

आंसुओं की शमा से गर
ग़म की तारीकियाँ मिटती
आंसुओं की शमा से गर
ग़म की तारीकियाँ मिटती
कुछ तो खुशीओं की रौशनी होती
ज़िंदगी के इस फसाने में
मांगने से जो मौत मिल जाती
कौन जीता इस जमाने में

आरज़ूओं के जनाज़े को
लेके कांधे पे हम घूमे
आरज़ूओं के जनाज़े को
लेके कांधे पे हम घूमे
चल के मंज़िल जो आई मिलने को
हम ही ना रहे इस ज़माने में
मांगने से जो मौत मिल जाती
कौन जीता इस ज़माने में

Atul ji,
SUNHARE QADAM(1966) was indeed the last movie of Bulo C Rani as a Music Director.During this picture,BCR was not well and hence S.MOHINDER was called over to complete the work.He gave music to 2 songs in this film.The above song,however,was done by BCR only.
A story synopsis etc was provided by me on 24-6-2011,as comments on another song of this film,’Na baaz aaya Muqaddar….’.
