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

Ye kyaa hai dhang zamaane ka

Posted on: July 26, 2012

“Daak Babu” (1954) was a Jubilee Pictures presentation. It was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri. The movie had Talat Mehmood, Nadira, Radhakrishan, Kuldip Kaur, Yashodhara Katju, Manmohan Krishnan etc in it.

Here is an obscure song from this obscure movie. It is sung by Talat Mehmood. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dhaniram.

Only the audio of this song is available, but seeing that Talat Mehmood acted in this movie, I guess that the song was picturised on Talat Mehmood himself.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.

Song-Ye kya hai dhang zamaane ka (Daak Babu)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Dhaniram

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

ye kya hai dhang zamaane ka
kaisi ye khudaayi hai
har ek bhalaayi ka badla
duniya mein buraayi hai
ye kya hai dhang zamaane ka

har baat bane afsaana jahaan
har naam pe tohmat aati ho
uthte hi koi masoom nazar
bas ruswaayi ho jaati ho
ae dil aisi mehfil se to
behtar tanhaayi hai
har ek bhalaayi ka badla
duniya mein buraayi hai
ye kya hai dhang zamaane ka

dil khaar hua bezaar hua
ab jeena yahaan duswhaar hua
dil khaar hua bezaar hua
jhoothe taanon ko sunkar main
majboor hua laachaar hua
kahin le chal ae dil ye nagri
mujhe raas na aayi hai
har ek bhalaayi ka badla
duniya mein buraayi hai
ye kya hai dhang zamaane ka

Congratulations to all readers on the submission of 1000 lyrics in this blog. What a fantastic milestone.

Atul’s tremendous effort, complemented by the zeal of contributors has seen this blog go from strength to strength. It certainly has reached new heights of popularity. As ever, this blog has been a valuable source of reference as well as a portal of entertainment for music lovers of all ilk.

Khyati, a nice rare Talat song to mark this auspicious occasion. Thank you.


Hats off to your “observation”. Congratulations to all readers and thanks to Atulji and all contributors for sharing their precious time, effort, knowledge & joy with all music lovers. Here is a simple math – 1000 lyrics contributed by 13 people, 665 posts contributed by 12 people (with seven contributors common in both). That makes it 1665 songs by readers. Atulji has posted 6313 songs till date (correct me Atulji if I am wrong) So now the question is who is that mysterious person who has devoted his four years for all music lovers without any intention of name and fame for all music lovers and has written 4648 complete posts (with lyrics) and 1000 posts for the lyrics we have sent. Ab bolo hum kis ka sukriya ada kare?
Regarding Talat sahab’s song- I love to listen to all of his songs, just like Rafi sahab. 🙂


Atif ji,

Thanks for keeping track of this major milestone. Sab lyrics ke contributors ko bahut bahut mubaarkbaad. 🙂

Aur Khyati ji,
Aap ki maths ke vishleshan ke to sadqe jaayen. Un 665 posts to chhod kar, baaki 5648 post ke peechhe to ek hi haath aur ek ih naam hai. Wohi naam to is blog ke sheershak (title) mein hai. In saahab ke dedication aur in ki tanmayataa ka koi saani nahin. Aur ek hi dhun mein, ye geeton ka kaarvaan apne saath liye huye badhe jaa rahe hain.

All hats off to Atul ji.

“Ye Kaafilaa Hai Pyaar Ka Badhtaa Hi Jaayega” 🙂



Achha hai Sudhirbhai ki aap ye vishleshan ko pehchan paaye. Mujhe to aise laga ki jaise sabhi padhnewaale number dekh ke dar gaye ya bhaag gaye 😆 Like you have said, hats off to Atulji. (Kabhi sochti hoon ki jo koi topi/hat nahin pehnta wo kya keh sakta hai? 😆 koi jawaab hai? )
