Suraj ki garmi se jalte huye tan ko

Today’s song is from a film called PARINAY-74, with music from a very talented Music Director- JAIDEV.

Now, I see some eyebrows raised,wondering why and how I have chosen a song from the 70s, because I generally talk about Films and Songs of 30s to 60s period only. But let me assure you that everything was not lost even after 1970. One could always find wonderful melodies here and there. Of course,the flow of such melodies had slowed down to a trickle,but still there were some sparks to be seen off and on.

This song, which happens to be a Bhajan actually, is one such ‘ear-catching’ (just like ‘ eye catching ‘ ) art work and it comes from a talented but Luckless composer- Jaidev.

An African by birth (Nairobi-3-8-1918), but very much a Punjabi by nature and culture, Jaidev started his film career in 1933, discontinued it in 1936 and began again in 1952 with Aandhiyan as an assistant Music Director, after spending some troublesome and sad times in his family life. from Joru ka Bhai-1955 to Zumbish-1986, he composed for just 41 films.

Except for Hum Dono-61 and some other films, Jaidev never got any recognition. He was branded as a Music Director for low budget films only. It is true that he did give music to many Art films like, Do Boond Paani, Maan jaaiye, Prem Parvat, Parinay, Alaap, Gharonda, Gaman, Ashadh ka ek din etc.

It is difficult to digest that any composer can operate for 30 continuous years without any Talent. So, it is certain that Jaidev was Talented, but he was very unlucky. Here are some incidents in his life which underline his bad luck-

1. He had to return to his home town, Ludhiyana,in 1936 after 8 roles in films and having sung 2 songs also, thanks to some mishaps in the family.

2. During his stint as an assistant to S D Burman from 1954 to 1961, he became an unwilling ‘prey’ in the dispute between Burman da and Lata ji, for doing just his role as a Telephone messenger. Lata kept this in her mind and for several years refused to sing for him.

3.He got National awards 3 times, Sur Singar Sansad award once and Lata Mangeshkar award from M P Government., but never got any FILMFARE award.

4. Throughout his life he could never own a house. The irony of fate was such that when finally the Maharashtra Government allotted him a free flat in Bandra, he was staying as a paying guest somewhere and from there he went to hospital and died, without ever taking the possession of that flat.

5. There were only two persons from the Industry at the time of his Funeral.

6. Some of his best compositions remained unreleased in films like, Aatish, Aazadi pachhis baras ki,Khunnas, Amar jyoti, Footpath, Annada didi, Shagun etc.

His film ‘ Chandragrahan’ ,songs for which were recorded in 1974, was finally released in 1997, a decade after he died on 6-1-1987.

Our Hindi Film Industry is full of stories of unfortunate artistes. It is one thing not to get opportunities,and yet another thing to remain unsung even after 30 years after getting all the opportunities !

The story of jaidev’s famous song ” Allah tero naam ” is also interesting. Initially it was to be sung by M S Subbalakshmi, but Navketan insisted on Lata ji. Knowing her dislike for Jaidev, actor Rasheed Khan, a regular at Navketan, was sent to Lata to negotiate. Lata refused to sing for Jaidev. Navketan sent a message to Lata that if Jaidev was the reason of her refusal, then they were ready to remove Jaidev from the film. Lata was strictly against replacement of Composers from films and above all she knew Jaidev’s value, so she relented and arrived to record that song.

Parinay was a New Wave or Art or a Parallel Cinema. Though there are minute differences between all the three types,there are only two types of films for the uninitiated, viz. – a)Escapist or the commercial cinema and b) Realistic cinema.

From the times Film making started ,their only purpose was to Entertain people.Hence the stories were mostly based on imaginative literatures like Mythology, Religious, Fantasy, Mystery or at the most based on famous stories/novels of famous writers. A class called “story writing Department” also emerged in many studios.

For a long time Indian cinema ran away from the reality,that is actual real life and its true difficulties. That way, Neo Realism of Italian Films or the New Wave Movement of the French films grew in the 50 and the 60s and naturally it also affected Indian Film makers.

Not that such films were not made in India before this Wave. The original ” ART ” film of India is considered to be V.Shantaram’s ‘” SAVKARI PASH”-1925 , a silent film. It was produced by Maharashtra Film Company of Kolhapur and was Directed by Baburao Painter. The main cast was V Shantaram, Zunjar rao Pawar, Kamala Devi, Ganpat Bakre, Dhaiber etc. It was a story of a poor farmer who loses his land to the Moneylender and has to go the city as a Mill worker. (a pre cursor to Do Bigha Zameen ?).

In 1946, Chetan Anand made ‘ Neecha Nagar ‘ and then in 1953 came Do Bigha Zameen. Actually this movement was first taken up by Bengali Directors like Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak etc.

The real momentum came in the 60s and 7os, when Ritwik Ghatak was FTTI’s Director. He encouraged Art films. FTII rolled out new generation actors and Directors. Actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Satish Shah, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Amol Palekar, Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Pankaj Kapoor, Pathak Trio of mother and daughters, Dipti Naval, Farooq Shaikh etc were taking this movement ahead under the Direction of Satyadev Dubey, Ritwik Ghatak, Govind Nihlani, Girish Karnad, Shyam Benegal, Kantilal Rathod, Sayeed Mirza, Mahesh Bhatt etc. Mahesh Bhatt made films based on his own life.

In that period several Art films were made like, Arth, Ankur, Manthan, Bhumika, Aakrosh, Maan jaaiye, Alaap, Prem parvat, Alingan, Andolan, Faaslaa, Gaman, Ek huns ka joda, Gharonda, Ghar, Dooriyan and many more.

There was a fixed audience for this type of films. These films depicted Realism, naturalism and Socio political climate of the country.

While some directors were busy in making Art films, portraying only sad and serious themes (synonymous with new wave films), directors like Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and Basu Bhattacharya proved that Art film concepts and entertainment can be mixed and films can be made. They made films like, Anand, Khubsoorat, Chupke chupke, Chashme baddur, Rajnigandha, Piya ka Ghar, Jaane bhi do yaaron, Chitchor etc.

By 1990, these types of films started disappearing for two reasons. 1) Audience was fed up of sad/tragic/boring films showing day to day life. There were some films having no dialogues or few dialogues, no songs and yet running for one and half hours. and 2) The same directors and actors realised, probably, that earning more money through commercial cinema was more important for their futures.

However after the year 2000, again small budget films with different topics are coming and succeeding too.

Parinay( Marriage ) -74 was one of the New Wave Films. I had seen this film, but after the song/Bhajan was over, it was difficult to keep awake in the film.

It was made by Samantar Chitra Private Limited and was directed by Kantilal Rathod. The cast included Romesh Sharma, Shabana Azmi,Dinesh Thakur, T P Jain etc.

The music was by Jaidev and film had just three songs. One song was posted earlier, this is the second song and one more song(Kavi re kavi by Rajendra Mehta) remains to be posted yet.

The story of the film tells us about Ram, who after his graduation wishes to do something for his village. His beloved Rekha marries him against every one’s advise and goes with him to the village. Soon the city bred Rekha gets fed up and leaves for city again, where she does a job in a travel agency. After some time, Rekha realises that Love is greater than anything else and goes back to Ram in his village to work with him there.

This song/Bhajan is in Raaga Jaunpuri and is considered as one of Jaidev’s best creations. It is sung by Deen Bandhu Sharma and chorus.

Lyrics

aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa

jaise suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya
suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya
aisa hi sukh mere
man ko mila hai
main jabse sharan teri aaya
mere raam
Suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya

bhatka hua mera man thha koi
mil na raha thha sahaara
bhatka hua mera man thha koi
mil na raha thha sahaara
Lehron se ladti huyi naav ko
Lehron se ladti huyi naav ko
jaise mil na raha ho kinaara
mil na raha ho kinaara
us ladkhadaati huyi naav ko jo
kisi ne kinaara dikhaaya
aisa hi sukh mere man ko mila hai
main jabse sharan teri aaya
mere Raam
Suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya

sheetal bane aag
chandan ke jaisi
Raghav kripa ho jo teri
Raghav kripa ho jo teri
ujiyaali poonam ki
ho jaaye raaten
jo thi amaavas andheri
ujiyaali poonam ki
ho jaaye raaten
jo thhi amaavas andheri
jo thhi amaavas andheri
yug yug se pyaasi
marubhoomi ne jaise saavan ka sandes paaya
aisa hi sukh mere
man ko mila hai
main jabse sharan teri aaya
mere Raam
Suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya

jis raah ki manzil
tera milan ho
us par kadam main badhaaun
jis raah ki manzil
tera milan ho
us par kadam main badhaaun
phoolon mein khaaron mein
patjhad bahaaron mein
main na kabhi dagmagaaun
phoolon mein khaaro mein
patjhad bahaaron mein
main na kabhi dagmagaaun
main na kabhi dagmagaaun
paani ke pyaase ko
taqdeer ne jaise
jee bhar ke amrit pilaaya
paani ke pyaase ko
taqdeer ne jaise
jee bhar ke amrit pilaaya
aisa hi sukh mere
man ko mila hai
main jabse sharan teri aaya
mere Raam
Suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya
aisa hi sukh mere
man ko mila hai
main jabse sharan tri aaya
mere Raam
Suraj ki garmi se
jalte huye tan ko
mil jaaye taruvar ki chhaaya

Sir,
Thanks a lot for this wonderful bhajan. Once known, never forgotten type of song. Ear catching is very apt to describe this one. Since I starting contributing on this blog, every now and than this one has come to mind, but I never looked it up.

This was a regular on Bombay DD’s ‘chhaayageet’ programme.

nahm ji,
Thanks.
This is one song which will remain with the listener for a long time.it is sort of enchanting.
I had also kept it in background,but then I thought this type of songs should not be kept hidden,they must reach more people,as early as possible.
And what better place to post it-to reach readers and wellwishers in 199 countries-than this Blog !

One of my fav bhajans from Hindi films!
Thank Arunji!
Thanks also for the information to Jaidev’s life. A really underestimated composer!
I think a composer, who is victim of Lata’s wrath could hardly exist in the film industry. O. P. Nayyar being a big exception.

I met Jaidev with my poems in his cosy flat near Churchgate sometime in1968

Arun-ji, I saw Parinay as soon as it was released in Bombay. I was a keen follower of new-wave films and I couldn’t have missed this film which was the first film in which Shabana acted but released after Ankur. Parts of the film were shot in Ahmedabad and IIMA (where I worked till recently.) This beautifully composed bhajan and sung so warmly by the Sharma Bandhu stood out in the film. It was after I came to Ahmedabad that I could have this bhajan in a two-volume cassette on Jaidav-ji brought out by HMV. As with the likes of many music directors who did not get credit. Jaidev-ji also died unwept and unsung. What a pity!!

Atul ji,

According to information given in Listener’s Bulletin No.47 of Nov,1981,this Bhajan is sung by
Pt. Gopal ji
Pt. Shukdev ji
Pt.Kaushalendra ji and
Pt.Raghavendra ji. ( and NOT by Deen Bandhu Sharma ).
They used to sing as ‘Sharma Brothers’.
They are all the sons of prof. Ramanand Sharma, actor / singer of the 40s.
