Naao kaaghaz ki gehra hai paani

Posted on: October 15, 2012


Shankar Jaikishan, the most dominant music directors during the golden era of Hindi movie music ruled the roost for two decades from 1949 to 1968 till R D Burman rose like a meteor and changed the rules of the game.

Many other developments took place during that time. One of those developments was that Jaikishan died in 1970 and that way the Shankar Jaikishan jodi was physically separated. Moreover, “Mera Naam Joker” (1970) flopped and after that Raj Kapoor made up his mind to overhaul his musical team making a clen break from his tried and trusted musical team of the past two decades.

Shankar continued to compose music under the name of Shankar Jaikishan. But the time passed, assignments from top banners gradually dried up and Shankar ended up composing music for lesser banners. His songs from mid 1970s onwards were not quite as popular as the music of his heydeys.

Nevertheless, Shankar composed some memorable songs even in his second innings as a solo music director, even if they are not as well known as the music of his earlier decades.

On the occasion of Shankar’s birthday today (15 october), here is a song from “Duniyadaari” (1977). This song is very much the theme cum title song of the movie since the word “Duniyadaari” figures in the lyrics of the song. This song has two versions. The duet version is sung by Lata and Rafi. This version is picturised on Nutan and Parikshit Sahni. Then there is a Lata solo version too which is a slower and sadder version.

Vishweshwar Sharma is the lyricist and he has written a nice inspirational song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala,

Lata-Rafi duet version
——————————————–
Naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani ee
zindagi ki yahi hai kahaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke ae
duniyadari padegi nibhaani ee
naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani
zindagi ki yahi hai kahaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani

ek nadi ki rawaani hai ye
mauj hai aani jaani hai ye
haan
ek nadi ki rawaani hai

mauj hai aani jaani hai ye
koi doobe koi tair le
ek dariyaa toofani hai ye

naa hi patwaar
naa hi kinaraa
paar kashti yeh kaise lagaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke ae
duniyadari padegi nibhaani ee
naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani

chand lamhon ka yeh khel hai
aag paani ka yeh mel hai
O o o o
chand lamhon ka yeh khel hai
aag paani ka yeh mel hai
umr bhar ke liye yeh jahaan
khoobsurat si ik jail hai ae ae ae
jaankar bhi hai anjaan saare
aur kya hogi bolo naadaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani

naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani

pyaar ke bin guzaara nahin
aur koi sahara nahin
O o o
pyaar ke bin guzara nahin
aur koi sahaara nahin
ham to mehmaan hai
is jahan ke
yeh hamaara tumhaara nahin ee ee ee
kaisa shikwa hai
kaisi shikayat
kyun haqeeqat se aankhen churaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani

Chaar naghme ho
Ek saaz ho
Ek meethi si aawaz ho
Chaar naghme ho
Ek saaz ho
Ek meethi si aawaz ho
Is safar ke liye ho bahot
Ek meherbaan ho
Hamraaz ho
Phir to jannat se badhkar hai duniya
Aur khushiyon bhari zindagaani
Phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
Duniyadari padegi nibhaani
Nao kagaz ki gehraa hai paani

Solo version (Lata)

Naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani
zindagi ki yahi hai kahaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani

baat kaanton ki kya
phool chubhhne lage
apne saanson se hi ham
sulagne lage
baat kaanton ki kya
phool chubhhne lage
apne saanson se hi ham
sulagne lage
un ummeedon ke jin se khushi thhi judi
aaj baaki nahin hai nishaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
duniyadari padegi nibhaani

hausla hai to phir aaj
haarenge kyun
is museebat se jeewan ko waarenge kyun
hausla hai to phir aaj
haarenge kyun
is museebat se jeewan ko waarenge kyun
raah mushkil hai phir
bhi badhenge kadam
itni aasan nahin zindagaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
duniyadari padegi nibhaani

apna jeewan kahaan hai ye apne liye
sab nibhane padenge wachan jo diye
apna jeewan kahan hai yeh apne liye
sab nibhane padenge wachan Jo diye
dard dil mein ho lekin labon par hansi
umr to hai farz par hai lutaani
phir bhi har haal mein muskura ke
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
duniyadari padegi nibhaani
duniyadari padegi nibhaani

Thank you Avinashji for reminding this song. Bachpan mein radio pe suna tha. If I remember right, this was the ad song for this movie on radio vividhbharti.

Thanks Khyati ji !!! I had this song in my in my vague memories as i have heard it in those years.
But i have to thank Shri.Punya Prasun Bajpayee the anchor of Zee TV’s news ‘ Badi Khabar’, who at the end of the bulletin every time plays a song commenting on the situation or in memory of the artists(as we remember). In one of the episode while commenting on the current inflation and political gimmicks he had played this song. And as an inspirational song it was my duty to bring it for our readers.
thanks !!!
