“Shabaab” (1954) was a Sadiq Productions movie. It was produced and directed by M Sadiq. The movie had Bharat Bhushan, Nutan, Shyam Asant Kumar, Wasti, Badri Prasad, Yashodra Katju etc in it.

The movie was a musical blockbuster. As many as six songs from this movie have already been discussed in the blog. Here is the seventh song from the movie.

This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Nutan. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushaad.

Song-Jo main jaanti bisrat hain sainyyan(Shabaab)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

mann saajan ne chheena
aur tan duniya ne chheena
aa aa
bhala kaho ab kaise baaje
bina taar ki beena

jo main jaanti
bisrat hain saiyyan
jo main jaanti
bisrat hain saiyyan
ghunghata mein aag laga deti
ghunghata mein aag laga deti
main laaj ke bandhan tod sakhi
main laaj ke bandhan tod sakhi
piya pyaare ko apne manaa leti
piya pyaare ko apne manaa leti

mere haar singaar ki raat gayi
piyu sang umang meri aaj gayi
piyu sang umang meri aaj gayi
ghar aaye na more saanwariya
ghar aaye na more saanwariya
main to tan mann un pe
o o
main to tan mann un pe luta deti
jo main jaanti
bisrat hain saiyyan
ghunghata mein aag laga deti

mohe preet ki reet na bhaayi sakhi
main ban ke dulhan pachhtaayi sakhi
main ban ke dulhan pachhtaayi sakhi
hoti na agar duniya ki sharam
hoti na agar duniya ki sharam
unhen bhej ke pattiyaan
o o
unhen bhej ke pattiyaan bula leti
jo main jaanti
bisrat hain sainyyaan
ghunghata mein aag laga deti

This song, like others from Shabab, is heavenly!

Unka aana unka Jana,
Khel tha taqdeer ka
Khwab the wo zindgi ke,
Din jo guzre pyar me..

These are the lines from one of the songs of this musical gift by Naushad- Shakeel Jodi of bygone era. All songs of this film was heavenly gift. This particular song is, however, very dear and close to my heart since ages. My most favourite song ….

I like this song very much but I have to comment about the lyrics.
I always thought that it is Jo main jaanati bichhadat hain saiyyan, meaning, had I known my love is getting separated from me , I would have burnt down this veil. Bichhadat means getting separated and Bisarat means forgetting.
So I feel that that Shakeel Badayuni should have wrote Jo main jaanati Bichhdat hai saiyan.
I will welcome the views of learned readers on this..

It has been over four years D.K.Sharma posted this. I have been trying hard to know the meaning of Bisrat, I tried all sorts of Hindi dictionaries but to no avail. Even online googling did not help. So friend Shsrmaji does Bisrat actually means Forgetting? If you read please respond. Thanks.

You are right. Bisaarna means to forget.

This is in response to Atul’s post as below. Does it then mean that
Bisaarna and Bisrat are connected? One is a noun and the other adjective? Also Shakeel Sahib might have meant Bisrat in the sense that my dear/love is forgetful and does not care about me?
I plan to watch Shabab to revive what I had seen years ago. One thing is certain. Shabab has all fantastic songs. Jo mein janti is a rare gem as Kohinoor!

The mukhda of the song

jo main janati bisrat hain saiyyan
ghunghata mein aag laga deti
main laaj ke bandhan tod sakhi
piya pyaar ko apne manaa leti

is a total lift off from the mukhda of a poem written by Amir Khusrau.
