Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Baabul tere baagaan di main bulbul

Posted on: May 30, 2012


A few regulars of this blog were recently wondering if Hindi movies have got a song where a daughter pays her last respects to her father who is leaving for his heavenly abode.

It is a very poignant situation. There are not too many songs for this situations, but such songs do exist. Here is one such song which was traced by Prakashchandra and who sent me the lyrics of this song.

Here is this song from “Jheel Ke Us Paar” (1973). The song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Mumtaz who is bidding farewell to her father (played by Pran) in this song.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

babul tere
bagaan di main bulbul
babul tere
baagaan di main bulbul
babul tere
baagaan di main bul bul
tujhe kaun saa geet sunaaoon
main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon
main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
ho main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
babul tere
bagaan di main bulbul
tujhe kaunsaa geet sunaaoon
main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon
main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
ho main roo-oon yaa muskaaoon

tere binaa koi meri
kadar na jaane
log deewaane
log deewaane
tere binaa koi meri kadar na jaane
log deewaane
log deewaane
begaane sab anjaane
kisse man ki baat bataaoon
main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
ho main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon

yaad nahin
bhool gayee
mujhe pyaari pyaari soorat teri
o moorat teri
yaad nahin
bhool gayee
mujhe pyaari pyaari soorat teri
o moorat teri
yug beete tujhe dekhe main
kaise tasveer banaaoon
main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
ho main rooon yaa muskaaoon

doli nahin to na sahi
mujhe arthi mein tu bitlaanaa
o phir tu jaanaa
doli nahin to na sahi
mujhe arthi mein tu bitlaanaa
o phir tu jaanaa
so jaanaa mat kho jaanaa
so jaanaa mat kho jaanaa
ro roke lorie gaaoon
main ro-oon
yaa muskaaoon
ho main rooon yaa muskaaoon
babul tere
bagaan di main bulbul
babul tere
baagaan di main bulbul
tujhe kaun saa geet sunaaoon
main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon
main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon
ho main ro-oon yaa muskaaoon

I’d read ‘Jheel ke us Paar’ by Gulshan Nanda much before seeing this movie. The songs were superb! What I can’t forget is the fact that for a blind girl, Mumtaz was always impeccably dressed, her make up intact and her hairstyle impossibly elaborate for a blind girl! It was Yogita Bali in a rather small role who walked away with our sympathies! And acting honours too!

I don’t even know what to say at this point. I have tears rolling down my cheeks as I write this. I have been so emotional for the past five months, ever since my dad fell, broke his hip, and the doctor warned me before the surgery that the chances were that my dad would not live for more than six months. I thought I was mentally prepared, but I find that one is never prepared to lose one’s parents. The last two months were sheer torture for me, as my father remained motionless in bed, eyes closed, mind wandering at times, and yet there were moments when he would check on me and whether I had eaten breakfast, lunch or dinner. I wept when he asked if I was doing everything by myself, and whether anyone was helping me – who but a parent would worry in his last moments about a daughter’s state of health? I wept every time he would ask me to hold his hand and help him, I wept when he felt bad that I didn’t have the strength to lift him into a sitting position. After 5th April, we said our Goodbyes, as the nurse gave him 3 to 5 days more, and then, it seemed like a miracle when he appeared to defy all odds and stayed alive, even if he didn’t open his eyes or eat or drink anything. But I suppose all miracles too come to an end, and his end had to come too. He was 93 years old, and his life too had to come to an end.
This song was so meaningful, especially when she sang, tere bina koi mera kadar na jaane …, and when I saw the picture of the little girl running towards her father. I was reminded of his taking me to school in Lucknow, way back in ’56, before many here were born, and I remember he came to school after a week or two, one afternoon, to see how I was settling in. I had been happily looking at the frog pond, but once I saw him, I wept inconsolably, until he was forced to take me home! When I left India and came to the US, I wept at the airport (I know, I seem to weep all the time) and wept even more when I read his first letter which I received after coming here. He was always so loving and so kind that it is hard to imagine that I wll never experience that love and kindness again.
Thank you, Atul, Prakash chandraji, Sudhirji, Khyatiji, Ava, Raja, and all the other lovely, caring people I have met through this blog. Most of all, thank you, Atul, for this blog without which I would never have found such a good group of people who have cared so much and whose support has kept me going through these difficult months. I know I have not been active with my comments lately, but I hope to come back to my old self one of these days. In the meantime, if I have left out any one’s name, please forgive me – I will be starting the individual replies to everyone once the last rites are completed and everything is done. We will be performing the rites at my home here in North Carolina next week, from Monday to Thursday, and if anyone can attend, please let me know and I can send you directions to come to the event on Thursday, which will be a celebration of his life.
Atulji, please feel free to edit this post. I am sorry for making it such a long one. Thank you once again for being so supportive and for posting this wonderful song.

This song was meant especially for you. It is just that I did not how how to mention this fact in the writeup. This blog has helped forge some wonderful online acquaintances among nice and understanding individuals. This to my mind is one of the most wonderful achievements of this blog.

sorry to hear abt ur dad! let him rest in peace
actually this is the 2nd news for me in the last 2 days. the other being of a lady in my family. her case is the way i wud like to go. doing my duties and loving her family and husband till the end. she was 83. yesterday she served lunch to her husband; ate with him; made sure he didn’t want anything more; asked him if it was ok if she sat down for a while till he finishes (being 93 he is a little slow nowadays). and then when he washed up and came he felt something amiss in the way she was sitting. she had passed away in that few minutes. and today her youngest son was telling that yesterday she was talking to him for 1/2 an hour and thats why the old couple’s lunch got delayed. he was staying in chennai and when we conveyed the news he cudn’t believe.
such is life and all through the morning it was heart wrenching to see the old man beside her body. but i think thats what they say
“anayasa maranam” in tamil or malayalam i don’t know, but it roughly translates to dying without any pain.
let god give peace to all these departed souls who were full of love & life when they were there with us.

Lalitha, your father may not physically be there with you right now but he will always be with you in your heart – and nobody can take him away from there. Parents are the most unselfish persons when it comes to their children, they are always giving love, they are always thinking about their welfare, that’s just how they are made, I guess.

Am glad you shared your feelings here – I hope it helped. Indeed Atul has helped us all get together as one community with this shared interest and getting to know each other better.

As for your crying a lot, isn’t it just the most normal thing to do?

Take care of yourself, Lalitha. We are all here for you.

Dear Lalitha,
Like all, I would also say/repeat the same thing. Your Father will and is with you. Just remember all the wonderful things he has done for you, cherish all the moments you have spend together and you will also feel his presence within you. Even though, I live in US, physically I won’t be able to be there with you and share your sorrow, as my son still is in the middle of his school finals. I have done prayers and again will do tomorrow (our time) for peace of this divine soul. As a Family, we are always with you. Take care of yourself.
