Main zindagi mein hardam rota hi raha hoon

Posted on: December 30, 2011


I have discussed as many as four songs from “Barsaat” (1949) in this blog, which is obviously not enough, seeing that (i) this movie had lots and lots of fantastic songs in it and that (ii) it was a pathbreaking movie in the annalas of Hindi movies.

Here is another song from this movie. This song is sung by Rafi and it is picturised as a background song as Raj Kapoor and Nargis are shown separated from each other and feeling suitably melancholic.

Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist and music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Song-Main zindagi mein hamdam rota hi raha hoon (Barsaat)(1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
tadapta hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon

ummeed ke diye bujhe
dil mein hai andhera
ummeed ke diye bujhe
dil mein hai andhera
jeewan ka to saathhi na banaa
koyi bhi meraa
jeewan ka to saathhi na banaa
koyi bhi meraa
phir kis ke liye
phir kis ke liye
aaj main jeeta hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon

reh reh ke hansa hai
meri haalat pe zamaana
reh reh ke hansa hai
meri haalat pe zamaana
kya dukh hai mujhe
yeh to kisi ne bhi na jaana
kya dukh hai mujhe
yeh to kisi ne bhi na jaana
khaamosh
khaamosh mohabbat liye
phirtaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon

aayeen na mujhe raas
mohabbat ki fazaayen
aayeen na mujhe raas
mohabbat ki fazaayen
sharmaayeen meri aankh se
saawan ki ghataayen
sharmaayeen meri aankh se
saawan ki ghataayen
lehron mein sadaa
lehron mein sadaa
gham ki main behtaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
rotaa hi rahaa hoon
tadapta hi rahaa hoon
main zindagi mein har dam
rotaa hi rahaa hoon

ummeed ke diye bujhe
dil mein hai andhera
jeewan ka to saathhi na banaa
koyi bhi meraa
phir kis ke liye
“aag mein” jeeta hi rahaa hoon

In this stanza, he word is “aag”.
“for whom do i go on living in this hell fire”.

I have not seen this movie only the songs. I saw this song for the firs time, the other day. I think the picturization is very eloquent. In one room the song is presented in a dramatised form. I thought Raj kapoor is singing in the last stanza, though most of it is in the background.

Nahm ji,
I think the word is ‘aaj’ and not ‘ aag ‘.
The stanza meaning,as I see it, is
when I did not get any companion in my life till now,for whom am I living now ?
I also checked Smriti.com and Gitayan.com
They confirm ‘aaj ‘.
