Shama par jalke bhi parwaana

Posted on: May 26, 2012


This article is written by Shekher Gupta, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a new contributor to this blog.

Without detracting one bit from her merit, capability and musico-longevity, I have to admit that I am not a fan of Asha Bhosle in the same manner as I am of Lataji. That said, there are quite a few of Ashaji’s evergreens – some of them lesser known than her racy raunchy numbers – which touch me more or less the same as some of Lataji’s best.

She has rendered Rajinder Krishan’s poignant Shama Par Jalke Bhi Parwaana Fana Hota Nahin … so movingly under C. Ramchandra’s baton on the glamorous Sheila Ramani in Meenar (1954) with Pran and Bharat Bhushan in the frame.

At the end of Ashaji’s portion, comes Talat’s vevety voice to repeat the opening sh’er. But Talat’s line is not captured in the video clip on YouTube. However, one can enjoy it in the audio version there.

Song – Shama Par Jalke Bhi Parwaana Fana Hota Nahin (Meenar)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

sitaaron se aage jahaan aur bhi hain
abhi ishq ke imtihaan aur bhi hain
aa aa aa aa

sitaaron se aage jahaan aur bhi hain
abhi ishq ke ae ae ae
imtihaan aur bhi hain

shamaa par jal ke bhi parwaanaa
fanaa hotaa nahin
shamaa par jal ke bhi parwaanaa
fanaa hotaa nahin
saaz se jaise kabhi naghmaa
judaa hotaa nahin

maut to chhoti si hai
ik aazamaaish ishq ki
maut to chhoti si hai
ik aazamaaish ishq ki
dard-e-ulafat jaan dekar bhi adaa hotaa nahin
dard-e-ulafat jaan dekar bhi adaa hotaa nahin
shamaa par jal ke bhi parwaanaa
fanaa hotaa nahin hai

hai zameen se aasmaan tak pyaar hi ki manzilen
hai zameen se aasmaan tak pyaar hi ki manzilen
khatm mar jaane se bhi ye silsilaa hotaa nahin
khatm mar jaane se bhi ye silsilaa hotaa nahin
shamaa par jal ke bhi parwaanaa
fanaa hotaa nahin hai
