Jai bolo Mahatma Gandhi ki

Posted on: January 30, 2013


Today (30 january 2013) is the 65th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi (2 october 1869- 30 january 1948). He was one leader who genuinely made a change in the world and that was a change for the betterment of people. He was a leader who inspired all the major mass movements of the 20th centuries namely anti colonialism, anti apartheid, and nearer home, anti touchability.

Hindi movies do not have too many songs devoted to Gandhi, but here is a song that I came across just now and I loved listening to it.

This song is sung by Lalita Deulkar and a male voice which could well be C Ramchandra, and chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us who could be this male singer.

I know from a comment post in the blog in the past that Rehana had lip synced this voice in Lalita Deulkar’s voice. It was a dance song according to that comment.

P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Here is this lovely and heart warming song that pays a simple heartwarming tribute to the father of the nation.

Lyrics

ae ho sanwariya
ae ho sanwariya
jo jaao bajariya
to laao chunariya khaadi ki
kya
khaadi ki

haan khaadi ki
jai bolo
ho jai bolo mahatma
gandhi ki
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ae ho sanwariya
jo jaao bajariya
to laao chunariya khaadi ki
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki

o ganga kinaare ka tu hai kisanwa
o ganga kinaare ka tu hai kisanwa
kheton mein kaam kare
kheton mein kaam kare saare saare dinwa
ho saare saare dinwa
paai chawanni chaandi ki
paai chawanni chaandi ki
jai bolo
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki

ae ho sanwariya
jo jaao bajariya
to laao chunariya khaadi ki

jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki

khaadi ki chunri ke taar tirange
taar tirange haan jhande ke rang ke
nikloongi jab main
nikloongi jab main pehan sanwar ke
ho pehan sanwar ke
lewe lehar aazaadi ki
lewe lehar aazaadi ki
jai bolo
ho jai bolo
arre jai bolo
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki

ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki
ho jai bolo mahatma gandhi ki

What a nostalgic song which I used to hear in my childhood days – not on radio but in our house itself. Thanks for posting this song on the Mahatma Gandhi’s remembrance day.

Atul ji… thank u …this song is with me. The male singer is none other than Chitalkar himself. The simplicity, reverence and expression of patriotism is heart-touching. Lalita ji;s vocal sound as if she is telling her beloved to select and buy only KHADI …there is no lust for new garments but a token of love for nation. Chitalkar and his team deserves respect.

Bharadiaji,
If you don’t mind, I would like to translate your comments and words of appreciation in English-
At last, after 64 years I heard this song and my old memories were fresh. Let’s pay our tribute/homage to the singer Lalita Dewoolkar and MD C. Ramchandra also, on the death anniversary of Gandhiji. Words of this song also reminds us to be an Indian and for that, let’s pay our tribute to P. L. Santoshi also.

વહાલાં ખ્યાતિ બેન,

તમારો આભાર,અંગ્રેજીમાં તરજુમો કરીને,તમો આ ‘બ્લોગ’માં

અવારનવાર તમારું યોગદાન આપોછો તે પણ જાણીતું છે।

હું ગુજરાતી છું અને ગુજરાતીઓ સાથે મારી માતૃભાષામાં

વ્યહવાર કરવાનું ગમે છે તમે પણ સૌરાષ્ટ્રના ગુજરાતી લાગો છો,

તમારું હિન્દી સિનેમા વિશેના બહોળા જ્ઞાનનો લાભ આપવા બદલ

આભાર,’અતુલ’ભાઈનો આ ‘બ્લોગ’ હિન્દી ફિલ્મોના સંગીત અને માહિતીનો

ખજાનો છે,તેમને અને તેમના બીજા સાથીઓ અને તમારા જેવા

‘કાબેલ’ લોકો પણ પણ ઘણું યોગદાન આપીને સમૃદ્ધ બનાવો છો,

વધુ તો શું કહેવાનું! ફરી આભાર માનીશ,

Thank for reminding this song…

This is one of my favorite songs of CR. I have been hearing this from my childhood as there was an unwritten rule in our house to hear only CR Songs…. just joking. My entire house is a diehard fan of CR. He was a very close friend of my father in the last 10 years of his life… as tribute to him I have published a book on his musical journey in his birth centenary year 2018, which was a gift for my father Shri. Padmakar Joshi on his 75th Birthday.
