Tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar boley

For those not at all religious, only a sublime expression of nishkaam bhakti (unconditional devotion without any desire or expectation of recompense) may possibly move them.

For me, one such superlative number is Bharat Vyas’s “Tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar bole, Jai Radhe-Shyam Shayam, Jai Sita-Ram Ram” in the Manmohan Desai directed “Janam-Janam Ke Phere” (1957).

The clip shows the moment of enlightenment (variously described as the “felt” knowledge about God) for Raghu, the protagonist played by Manhar Desai, upon which he feels God within and surrenders his entire being to Him.

If something can make atheist eyes well up with tears, it is this — as Padma Bhushan Manna Dey brings alive that sublime moment of enlightenment and the protagonist’s nishkaam bhakti with his peerless vocals under S.N. Tripathi’s baton.

An aside here: A very similar version of this number was much later released as a private song by Anupam Jalota which too is available on YouTube. Without detracting one bit from Jalota’s superb effort, I feel it falls way short of the sublime height the great Manna Dey scales in his rendition.

Lyrics

Mann ka andhiyaara mita,
phaila amar prakaash
nainon ne darshan kiye
ae ae
bujhi hriday kee pyaas

tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar bole
Jai Raadhe-Shyam Shyam,
Jai Sita-Ram Ram
tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar bole
Jai Radhe-Shyam Shyam,
Jai Sita-Ram Ram

ab to is tann ke mandir mein
Prabhu ka hua basera
Prabhu ka hua basera
ab to is tann ke mandir mein
Prabhu ka hua basera
Prabhu ka hua basera
magan hua mann mera
aa aa,
magan hua mann mera
chhoota janam-janam ka phera re
janam-janam ka phera
mann ki muraliya mein
mann ki muraliya mein
ae ae
mann ki muraliya mein
sur ka singaar bole
Jai Raadhe-Shyam Shyam,
Jai Sita-Ram Ram
tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar bole
Jai Raadhe-Shyam Shyam,
Jai Sita-Ram Ram

lagi lagan Leela-dhaari se,
jagi re jagmag jyoti
jagi re jagmag jyoti
lagi lagan Leela-dhaari se,
jagi re jagmag jyoti
jagi re jagmag jyoti
Ram naam ka heera paaya
aa aa,
Ram naam ka heera paaya
Shyam naam ka moti
jagi re jagmag jyoti
pyaasi do ankhiyon mein
pyaasi do ankhiyon mein
ae ae ae
o o o o
o o o o
pyaasi do ankhiyon mein
aansoo ki dhaar bole
Jai Raadhe-Shyam Shyam,
Jai Sita-Ram Ram
tann ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar bole
Jai Radhe-Shyam Shyam
Jai Sita-Ram Ram
Jai Radhe-Shyam Shyam
Jai Sita-Ram Ram
