Jal bharne chali ri guinyaa

Posted on: September 9, 2012

I just came to know (thanks to information given by Khyati Bhatt) that today (9 september) is the birth anniversary of Leela Chitnis (9 september 1909 -14 july 2003). Leela Chitnis was born on 9 september 1909, and that makes her date of birth a perfect 09-09-09 whether you write it in the British style or the US style.

Leela Chitnis, known to many as an actress playing the role of mother in 1950s onwards was one of the earlier pioneers of Hindi movies. During the earlier years of Hindi movies, acting in Hindi movies was considered a disreputable job for women and so it would be difficult to get for women from respectable families to act in movies. Leela Chitnis was one of the earliest well educated women from respectable family background to enter into movies. This paved the way for future generation of women to enter into this profession.

She in fact became the first Indian actress to model for Lux soap, which was then regarded as a big recognition for any movie star. Till then, Lux had only used Western acresses to model for Lux soap.

On the occasion of Leela Chitnis’ bith anniversary, here is a song from “Kangan” (1939). This movie was a Bombay Talkies movie. It was produced by Himanshu Roy and directed by Franz Osten and it had Ashok Kumar, Leela Chitnis, Mubarak, Amiya, V H Desai, P F Pithawala, Saroj Borkar etc.

The song is sung by Leela Chitnis and it is picturised on her as well.

This movie had two sets of lyricist and music directors, viz Pradeep-Saraswati Devi and Pt Narottam Vyas-Ramchandra Pal. This song is written by Pt Narottam Vyas and composed by Ramchandra Pal.



Song-Jal bharne chali ri guinyaa (Kangan)(1939) singer-Leela Chitnis, Lyrics-Pt Narottam Vyas, MD-Ramchandra Pal


jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jamunaa kinaaraa chanchal dhaaraa
jamunaa kinaaraa chanchal dhaaraa
pawan chalat purbaiyyaa
aaa aaa
pawan chalat purbaiyyaa
aaa aaa
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa


radha didi
radha didi

Raamu sud-sud kartaa rahtaa
naak baraabar bahi hai
Ballu bhondoo nahin jaantaa
dhoti kahaan se bandhhti hai

ye bade natkhat bachche hain
aaj itni der se paani bharne jaa rahi ho
haan bahan
babaji ki sewa mein zara der ho gayi
wo to achche ho gaye thhe
haan achche to ho gaye
par main abhi unkhen bahut sawere nahin utthne deti

achha ab main chal di bahan
der ho rahi hai
lautate waqt ?? saadhuon ke liye
seedha leti jaana

hmm hmm hmm hmm
chalo ri guinyaa
jal bharane chali ri guinyaa
daal-daal par phool khile hain
daal-daal par phool khile hain
kook rahi koyaliyaa
kook rahi koyaliyaa
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jal bharane chali ri


jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
kunj-kunj mein bhanwraa goonje
kunj-kunj mein bhanwraa goonje
hansti komal kaliyaan
hansti komal kaliyaan
hansti komal kaliyaan
hansti komal kaliyaan
jal bharne chali ri guinyaa
jal bharne

Happy Birth-Anniversary, dear Leela, wherever and in whatever form you maybe!
Thank you for your contribution to the film industry and entertainment of the Indian people!

Leela Chitnis, Nana Palshikar, Krishnakant, Hangal, Shivram, Naseer Husain and few others have looked perennially old even in their days. Kudrat ka Karishma; aur nahi to kya

Read: even in their younger days. Thanks
