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

Saathi milte hain badi mushqil se

Posted on: August 5, 2012


When I was growing us in late 1960s and 1970s, I was only aware of a few festivals when we had holidays. There were days like Holi, Deewaali, Raksha Bandhan,Durga Puja (Dashara), Id, Chrishmas etc. Then there were a few days thaat were known as days, viz Children’s day (Jawaharlal Nehru’s bithday), Teacher’s day (Radhakrishnan’s birthday) etc.

The festivals were being celebrated in India for several centuries, but the “days” began to be celebrated afted India became independent. Then we became aware of some international “days” viz May day (1 may), “UN” day (24 october), “UNICEF” day (11 december) etc.

While the number of Indian festivals have by and large remained unchanged, Indians discovered several additional days to celebrate. Now there are days like “Mother’s day, Father’s day, Grandparent’s day, World Environments day, Anti Pollution day, Anti Terrorism day etc.

When one goes into some details, one finds that increase in the number of these days began as greeting card companies began to operate in India sometime in late 1980s. Prior to the advent of greeting cards in India, people would greet others during festivals in person or through post. When greeting card companies began their operations, they initially had only the most generic cards, viz happy birthday cards, cards of important festivals etc, but soon they began to “educate” their customers about many other days. The campaign by the greeting card industry has been so successful that now every one in India knows about Valentine’s day. 🙂

It is not that greeting card industry have singled out Indians. They have been at it in other countries too and with similar success. Cards for mother’s day, father’s day, Valentine’s days etc have been marketed in western countries for several decades.

Today morning I became aware of another day. I was told that today (5 august) is Friendship day. I had never heard of this day. On googling for this term, I found that a greeting card had first coined the term in early 1900 s and tried to sell Frindship day greeting cards in US, but their attempt was not successful. Gradually with passage of time, as communication network has improved, this day, like other days, have come back in fashion.

Most of these days are celebrated on afixed day according to the calender, but this friendship day is celebrated in India on the first sunday of August. It is a very unique practice indeed and I wonder who was that wise guy was thought up this idea.

So while I was feeling a bit “relaxed” thinking that I did not have any anniversaries to contend with today, I was made aware of the fact that today was “Friendship” day, which meant that I was required to discuss an appropriate song for the occasion. What were the songs that I could discuss on the occasion. Most well known default “Friendship” songs, viz. Ye dosti ham nahin todenge(Sholay), Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi (Zanjeer), Tere jaisa yaar kahan(Yaraana) etc have already been discussed. And yesterday I discussed a perfect “Friendship” day song, viz. Khuda hi juda karey to karey (Aap To Aise Na Thhey).

Have no worry. I have just the song for the occasion. I am thankful to one of my virtual (facebook)friends who not only informed me about the “Friendship” day, he also suggested a perfect song for the occasion.

So here is this song from “Ek Hans Ka Joda” (1975). I had neither heard of this movie nor heard this song before. But what a song ! This song is a gem. If this song failed to get anywhere withing my hearing range in 1976 then it shows what a box office disaster this movie must have been.

I wonder if the video of this movie is available, It could well be available, but listening to the audio of this song is in itself a richly rewarding experience.

So on the day of this day, which falls on different days on different years on the first sunday of August, here is a fantastic “Friendship: day song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar with feeling. Indeewar is the lyricist and music is composed by Jaidev. It is a fantastic song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

Here is this song, and happy “Friendship” day to all.


Song-Saathi milte hain badi mushqil se (Ek hans ka Joda)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD- Jaidev

Lyrics

hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm

saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna
jaan se pyaari
hoti hai yaari
jaan se pyaari
hoti hai yaari
yaari kabhi na todna
kisi ka saath na chhodna

samay to hai ik chanchal dhaara
samay to hai ik chanchal dhaara
kaun isse lautaayega
bicchda saathi
toota taara
phir na kabhi mil paayega
jisase bhi milna
pyaar se milna
jisase bhi milna
pyaar se milna
dil na kisi ka todna
kisi ka saath na chhodna
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna

pyaar ka paudha
har pal seencho
pyaar ka paudha
har pal seencho
der lage kumhlaata hai
toot gaya to jud nahin paata
bada hi naazuk naata hai
jag mein kisi se
pyaar ka naata
jag mein kisi se
pyaar ka naata
soch ke hi jodna
kisi ka saath na chhodna
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna

yaar na ho jis mehfil mein
yaar na ho jis mehfil mein
wo mehfil mehfil hi nahin
pyaar na ho jis jeewan mein
wo jeene ke kaabil hi nahin
sabse badi hai pyaar ki poonji
sabse badi hai pyaar ki poonji
pyaar se munh na modna
kisi ka saath na chhodna
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna
saathi milte hain
badi mushqil se
kisi ka saath na chhodna

Waah, waah, Atul. A bonanza! Two successive posts on wonderful yet relatively unknown Kishore songs of the 70’s. You would probably find more such gems in the DVD I had sent you earlier.

I had never heard these two songs before. So it shows how obscure these movies and these songs were during their time.

Atul ji,

The rise of seventies,in India,saw new concepts in relationships.The ‘Live in’ relationship,which had established in the advanced countries like US,UK and most European countries penetrated in the developing countries and soon became popular here.Trial marriages,Contract marriages,Live in reltionships and the variations of these soon took roots in the younger generation here.
EK HUNS KA JODA-1975 was one attempt at trying it out,albeit half heartedly.In the sense that it was coupled with Indian sanskar and values to boot.may be the raw Trial Marriage idea was too heavy for the makers to handle.
This was a film which had some traditional situations like Amir – Garib duo,Family resistence for the love birds and a small dose of the new fad of ‘Trial marriage.’
Anil(Anil Dhawan) loves Tina(Zahira).Anil is from a middle class family,while Tina is very rich.Their families are against this marriage for obvious reasons.Tina’s grandfather(Utpal Dutt) who is of progressive and practical thinking,proposes a “Trial Marriage”,for two months.The condition is the pair can stay together during day time but in the night Tina has to return to her house.Secondly,they have to manage in Anil’s income.
The film depicts the trials and turbulations of this arrangement,with some drama added to make it masaledar.Finally it is proved that True Love can cross all borders of differences and Indian sanskars and Values are greater than anything else.
iftekar and Achala Sachdev as Tina’s parents and Anwar Hussain and indrani mukherji as Anil’s Bhaiya and bhabhi add spice to the story.
The music was by Jaidev with assistance from Pyarelala,Anil and Shyam babu.The film had only 5,but melodious songs.Like madan mohan,Jaidev also could never enjoy success of most of his films musicwise,though it was excellent.

I saw this movie a few years ago. It was available online on rajshri then, Probably still available. Was an OK movie, I thought. Not great but considering I have zero expectations from it, it was a pleasant surprise.

I do not about this “day” 🙂
In west they celebrate March 17 as Saint Patrick day. Everybody wears green outfit. Some times can be wear with shamrocks (three leaves plant) and shamrock-inspired designs.
The organization Guinness World Records awarded St Patrick’s Day as officially the world’s ‘Friendliest Day of the Year’. More than 435,000 people joined the campaign and it was a record of 26 countries across 4 continents

List of some other “DAY”.

“National Secretary Day” In Last Wednesday of April…good for Florist/ restaurant business.

the third Saturday in October is “SWEETEST DAY” created by candy/chocolate/ice cream industries.

Bosses Day comes on October 16 each year can be celebrated as boss (appreciation) day, …take boss to lunch paid by employees 🙂

I like this one…”World Party Da”y, on April 3, (opposite of World War).

and then there is doctor’s day sometime in July/ August when we acknowledge the services of our doctors. i think people usually thank their family doctor on this day,

Doctors’ day is on FIRST JULY.

I didn’t know about Doc day…Interesting…
Well, we can make all (365) days to something 🙂
May be one day “curry day” next “Biryani day” third day “Tandoori day”.. and so forth…:)
