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

Man ke khazaane mein maaya hi maaya

Posted on: November 3, 2012


“Teen Chor” (1973) was produced by Gordhandas and Ravi Malik and directed by Dada Mirasi. The movie had Jeevan, Manmohan Krishna, Jagdish Raaj, Ranjeet, Sudesh Kumar, Zaheeda, Chaman Puri, Vinod Mehra, I. S. Johar, Om Prakash etc in it.

Om Prakash, Jeevan and I S Johar play the title roles of the “Teen Chor” (three thieves).

This song is a bhajan which is sung by Rafi and female chorus. It is written by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Sonik Omi. The three devotees who lip sync this song are Manmohan Krishna, Sulochana and Zaheeda while the “teen Chor” are trying to break a safe but without success.

Khyati Bhatt, who sent me the lyrics of this song mentions that she last heard this song three decades ago and stumbled upon this song again today. I was aware of this song and I clearly remembered noting down the lyrics of this song in a diary that I maintained in 1970s. I got hold of the diary and the lyrics of this song are very much there in that. I have noted down the name of the singers as Rafi and saathi, so it means that the female singers (there appear two of them) are not identified. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on who the female singers could be.

Today (3 november) is the 22nd death anniversary of Manmohan Krishna (26 february 1922 – 3 november 1990). On this occasion, here is this nice philosophical bhajan from “Teen Chor” (1973).

Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

man ke khazaane mein
maaya hi maaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om
man ke khazaane mein
maaya hi maaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om

dikhaayi na de jo andhere mein taala
tu jyoti lagan ki jalaa le
ho o
tu jyoti lagan ki jalaa le

dikhaayi na de jo andhere mein taala
tu jyoti lagan ki jalaa le
ho o
tu jyoti lagan ki jalaa le

hey ae
agar haath kaanpe to
hari naam le kar
tu pooja ki chaabi laga le
ha aa
tu pooja ki chaabi laga le

daraati hai kyun tujhe
apni hi chhaaya
tera hi dhan hai
ye nahin hai paraaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om
man ke khazaane mein
maaya hi maaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om

kabhi haar daata ki hoti nahin hai
na jeeta kabhi lene waala
ho o
na jeeta kabhi lene waala

kabhi haar daata ki hoti nahin hai
na jeeta kabhi lene waala
ho o
na jeeta kabhi lene waala

hey ae
bharegi na teri ye trishna ko jholi
thakega na wo dene waala
ha aa
thakega na wo dene waala

usine banaayi hai teri ye kaaya
kaaya mein bhakti ka dhan hai chhupaaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om
man ke khazaane mein
maaya hi maaya
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
jab bhi tu chaahe ise loot le
hari o o om

This song as well as picturisation of it look like a replica of the picturisation of the song ‘devaa chi tijori’ from a Marathi film ‘Aami Jaato Amuchya Gava’. Check with this video clip :

Sadanandji,
You are right. Meaning and picturization are same. I remember watching AJAG on Doordarshan, Saturday Marathi movie night. I may be in my teens, so don’t remember the story of AJAG to say if Teen Chor was a copy of this Marathi movie. Can you give me some details? Other song that I have in my audio cassette collection is “Brahma Vishnu ani Maheshwar tya mori basle mala he Datta Guru disle……” by Ashaji from the same movie, AJAG. Other songs I remember listening on radio, early morning are
Keshwa Madhawa tujha naama….
Aakashi zhep ghe re paakhara….
Tuze roop chitti raho mukhi tujhe naav….
Datta digambar daivat maaze…..
Ek dhaga sukhacha sambhar dhage dukhache…(my most fav philosopical song)
Ghanshyaam sundara shridhara…..
Uthh pandharichya raja…..
So many of these songs I love and cherish! Few of them are still in my audio cassettes. Thanks Sadanandji for reminding me these gems.

Kamath ji,
Why only this song,the entire film is a remake of “Aamhi Jaato Aamuchya Gaava”-1968.The story outline is the same too.
Originally,it seems,this film was Titled ‘ Maalik tere bande hum ‘ or ‘Jail hamara desh ‘.All the records were issued in this name only.
HFGK does not give any other Female singers’ names,so those voices may be of some chorus members.

Thanks Arunji for the clarification. Now, I would rather watch AJAG than Teen Chor. 🙂 Still this song of Rafi is/will be my fav.

So, Atulji, you also had diary of Hindi songs in your early days! I have a note book also with few songs written while listening to Radio Vividhbharati during late 70s and early 80s. To write every word of the song correctly, main mere kaan radio ke itni kareeb le jaati thi ki meri maa aur mere pitaji, dono dukhi ho jaate aur samjaate ki tu galat kar rahi hai. But for me, most important thing was not to miss movie name, singer, lyricist, MD or any word of that song. Kaash hum radio rewind kar sakte the. 😆 Today, I record all shows on DVR and can rewind to see the best song/part of the program, can forward the boring commercials and save my best fav songs/program on external hard drive! Jai bolo technology ki !!!! 🙂

when Raja met me two years ago, I showed him that diary. In that diary I had written song lyrics as well as scores of test matches played in 1970s. Looking at that diary was regarded by Raja as a major highlight of that meeting. 🙂

Isn’t it gr8 to meet someone with the same interest, so you can interact rather than distract! And that’s the reason we always look forward to see that person again. Experience/feeling of sharing your HAND WRITTEN songs/list of movies/details about artists (the treasure that our Arunji has) is different than one you have collected and typed on your excel sheet. Of course, the later version is some what “reliable” than the first kind. (Sudhirji’s experience of his “disloyal computer/ Sanam Bewafa” should be excluded 🙂 )
