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

Tera ghar aabaad rahey

Posted on: July 12, 2012

Today (12 july) is the birth anniversary of Bimay Roy. On this occasion, here is a song from “Biraj Bahu” (1954) which was directed by Bimal Roy.

“Biraj Bahu”(1954) was based on a novel by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The movie was produced by Hiten Chaudhary. The movie had Abhi Bhattacharya ,Kamini Kaushal, Shakuntala, Kammo, Pran, Manorama, Bikram kapoor, Baby Chand, Randhir, Moni Chatterjee, Sarita Devi, Maya Das, DasharathLal,Sharifa, Sailen Bose, Ravikant, Faruqi, Dheer, Jagdish, Sharma, JaniBhai, Iftekar, Shivji Bhai etc in it.

This song is sung by Lata, Shyamal Mitra and chorus. It is picturised on Abhi Bhattacharya, Kammo, Kaamini Kaushal, Randhir, Kamini Kaushal, Shakuntala etc.

Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

This song marks the debut of Shyamal Mitra as a singer in this blog. I wonder if he is the same person whom we know as a music director of Bamga movie as well as the music director of the Hindi movie called “Amanush” (1975). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this singer.

Lyrics of this song as well as other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

tera ghar aabaad rahe
tera ghar aabaad rahe
jaa ree dulhaniyaa

tu shaad rahe
tu shaad rahe ae
ho o o o

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

ek ghar ujde

duniyaa ka dhang puraanaa
kiss kaa yahaan thikaaanaa
kiss kaa yahaan thikaana
yun hi rahegaa aanaa jaanaa
kisskaa yahaan thikaanaa
o o o
palchchin mein dekho badle
kya kya rang zamaanaaa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

rimjhim rimjhim gaati aayee
phir se badariyaa kaari
mehki daari daari
mehki daari daari
lehki ujdi huyee phulwaari
mehki daari daari
o o
o o o o
o o o
gaati bahaaron ke sang
aao geet gaa lo re
aao geet gaa lo
do din kaa jeevan hai ye
hans lo hansaa lo re
hans lo hansaa lo

koyee bahaaron ke sang
kyaa dil lagaaye jee
kyaa dil lagaaye
hansti hai jo bhi kali
wohi murjhaaye jee
wohi murjhaaye
ek pal hansaaye duniyaa
sau pal rulaaye
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

Yes Atulji, he is same Shyamal Mitra who gave music in Amanush and Anand Ashram. Info on web mentions him as a MD for Musafir and Naukri also. But the MD for these two movies was Salil Chaudhary. So, may be he worked as a assistant director. I would appreciate if some one can give right info on this.
BTW, the first stanza is by Lataji so color should be different.


Kamini Kaushal had a small role to play even in the recently released movie Chennai Express (2013).
