Kaahe jiya doley ho kaha nahin jaaye

Posted on: August 13, 2012


“Anokhi Ada” (1948) is a treasure of great songs. Like most music lovers, I was only aware of the just the few songs from this movie that were the most popular ones. But subsuquently, I have been discovering the remaining songs of this movie, mainly because the lyrics of the remaining songs from “Anokhi Ada” (1948) have been sent to me by Atif M. Yesterday I discussed an untypical composition from this movie which was a soft song, which sounded like a western music based composition. And here is a lovely folk music based composition from “Anokhi Ada” (1948) which has bowled me over at the very first listening.

This delightful song is sung by Uma Devi, a protege of Naushad. She is known among many music lovers mainly for her song Afsana likh rahi hoon(Dard)(1947). It is a travesty that this song from “Anokhi Ada” (1948) should fail to get popular among music lovers. What a delightful song it is. This song deserves to be counted among one of the best compositions of Naushad.

Shakeel Badayuni has written the simple and effective lyrics of the song.

I am unable to identify the lady who lip syncs this song in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.
PS-The actress is Zeb Qureshy. I thank Mr Atiullah for herping identify her.

As mentioned above, the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

Song-Kaahe jiya doley ho kaha nahin jaaye (Anokhi Ada)(1948) Singer-Uma Devi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

kaahe jiya dole
ho kaha nahin jaaye
kaha nahin jaaye
ho kaha nahin jaaye
kaahe jiya dole
ho kaha nahin jaaye

jamuna ke paar more
pi ki nagariya
pi ki nagariya
kaise bitaaun haaye
baali umariya
baali umariya
hook uthhe mann mein
to raha nahin jaaye
kaha nahin jaaye
ho raha nahin jaaye
hook uthhe mann mein
to raha nahin jaaye

jeewan ko bhaaye more
bachpan ka sang na
bachpan ka sang na
pee pee papeeha boley
jab more angna
jab more angna
bol mose bairi ka
saha nahin jaaye
saha nahin jaaye
ho kaha nahin jaaye
bol mose bairi
ka saha nahin jaaye

saagar mein dol rahi
hirday ki naiyya
hirday ki naiyya
dil jhoom jhoom kahe
aaja khiwaiyya
aaja khiwaiyya
oonchi oonchi lehron mein
baha nahin jaaye
baha nahin jaaye
ho baha nahin jaaye
oonchi oonchi lehron mein
baha nahin jaaye
