Na aasmaan na sitaare fareb dete hain

Posted on: January 23, 2012


“Neela Aakaash” (1965) is a movie which was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia for Kiron Productions. Starcast of the movie included names like Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Madan Puri, Manorama, Shashikala, Madhvi, Raj Mehra, Sulochana Latkar, Sabita Chatterjee, Mehmood, Mumtaz Begum, Jeevan Kala, Hari Shivdasani etc.

Recently I post the first song of this movie in the blog. Now I have lyrics of several songs from this movie lined up for posting.

I had discussed a Rafi Asha Bhonsle song from this movie where I had wondered why Madan Mohan, who is well known for creating several memorable gems with Lata did not use Lata’s voice. It turns out that those wer the days when Lata and Rafi were not singing together because of their differences on certain issues related to royalties of songs. Lata wanted that singers should get a share of the roayalty for the songs sung by them. Rafi, the more simple person believed that the singer should have no claims to royalties after he gets his fees for singing the songs.

The music companies won in the end. Even today, the singers, lyricists and music directors have n claims over most of the songs (including memorable songs) created by them, and the music companiescontinue to profit from such songs.

Coming to the movie itself, the movie “Neela Aakash” (1965) did have a Lata solo. But no one has seen the vidio of this song and this song itself did not become popular. So Prakashchandra, who sent me the lyrics of this song, believes that this song may have been excluded from the movie.

Here is this nice, lesser known ghazal from “Neela Aakaash”(1965). It is sung by Lata. Its lyrics are written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and music is composed by Madan Mohan.


Song-Na aasmaan na sitaare fareb dete hain (Neela Aakash)(1965) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

na aasmaan na sitaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan na sitaare
fareb dete hain
hamein to apne sahaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan na sitaare
fareb dete hain
hamein to apne sahaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan

bahaar hansti huyee
kyun chaman mein aati hai
bahaar hansti huyee
kyun chaman mein aati hai
ye chaar din ke liye
phool kyun khilaati hai
nazar ko kyun ye
nazaare fareb dete hain
hamein to apne sahaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan

lagi hai aag khud
apne hi aashiyaane se
lagi hai aag khud
apne hi aashiyaane se
woh bud-naseeb gila
kya kare zamaane se
ke jisko apne hi pyaare
fareb dete hain
hamein to apne sahaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan na sitaare
fareb dete hain
hamein to apne sahaare
fareb dete hain
na aasmaan

Thanks for uploading this rare and beautiful song. However this is not a GAZAL. Many of the MadanMohan songs are wrongly referred to as Gazal.

Would appreciate how a ghazal is defined. Like a lot of the songs on this blog but am a novice compared to a lot of the highly knowledgable responses to the posts

The ghazal (Arabic/Pashto/Persian/Urdu: غزل; Hindi: ग़ज़ल, Punjabi: ਗ਼ਜ਼ਲ, Turkish: gazel, Bengali: গ়জ়ল, Gujarati: ગ઼ઝલ) is a poetic form consisting of rhyming couplets and a refrain, with each line sharing the same meter. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. The form is ancient, originating in 6th century Arabic verse. It is derived from the Arabian panegyric qasida. The structural requirements of the ghazal are similar in stringency to those of the Petrarchan sonnet. In its style and content it is a genre which has proved capable of an extraordinary variety of expression around its central themes of love and separation. It is one of the principal poetic forms which the Indo-Perso-Arabic civilization offered to the eastern Islamic world.

The ghazal spread into South Asia in the 12th century under the influence of the new Islamic Sultanate courts and Sufi mystics. Although the ghazal is most prominently a form of Dari poetry and Urdu poetry, today it is found in the poetry of many languages of Indian sub-continent.

Ghazals were written by the Persian mystics and poets Rumi (13th century) and Hafiz (14th century), the Azeri poet Fuzuli (16th century), as well as Mirza Ghalib (1797–1869) and Muhammad Iqbal (1877–1938), both of whom wrote ghazals in Persian and Urdu. Through the influence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832), the ghazal became very popular in Germany in the 19th century, and the form was used extensively by Friedrich Rückert (1788–1866) and August von Platen (1796–1835). The Kashmiri-American poet Agha Shahid Ali was a proponent of the form, both in English and in other languages; he edited a volume of “real ghazals in English”.

In some ghazals the poet’s name is featured somewhere in the last verse (a convention known as takhallus).
