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

Raahi o raahi o raahi

Posted on: June 1, 2013


“Himalay Se Ooncha” (1975) was produced by Babboo Mehta and directed by B S Thapa. The movie had Sunil Dutt and Mallika Sarabhai in lead roles. Ranjeet, Rakesh Pandey, Achala Sachdev etc were in it as well.

The most well known song from this movie was its title song with its inspirational lyrics. This song was sung by Lata and it was picturised as a background song.

Here is the title song of the movie. It is written by Indeewar. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Three years later, the same music ditrector and singer created a song on the river Ganga viz. Maano to main Ganga maan hoon na maano to behta paani” (Ganga Ki Saugandh). For some reason, the two songs remind me of each other as if these songs were cut from the same musical cloth.

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

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Raahi O raahi ee ee
O raahi
tere sar pe duaaon ke saaye rahen
tere sar pe duaaon ke saaye rahen
manzilen pathh mein palken bichhaaye rahen
ho o o o
Tu nirashaa mein aasha ke deepak jalaa
ho o o o
tu nirashaa mein aasha ke deepak jalaa
Ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
O raahi
O raahi

raahi o raahi ee ee
O raahi
raahi raahi raahi

(Allah o Akbar Allah aa aa aa ho Akbar
Allah o Akbar Allah aa aa aa ho Akbar

?
?)

jaan dete hain jo auron ke waaste
jaan dete hain jo auron ke waaste
sabke dil mein banaate hain woh raaste
unke kadmon se mitataa hai har faasla
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
O raahi o raahi

aa aa aa aaa
aa aa aa aaa
aa aa aa aaa
aa aa a aaa aa

Maseeha usiko to kehte hai ham
aa aa aa aa
Maseeha usiko to kehte hai ham
khushi deke lele jo auron ke gham
Aa aa aa
apne dil mein tu auron ke gam le chala
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
O raahi o raahi
raahi o raahi
O raahi

nichhaawar hai us maa pe saara jahaan
nichhawar hai us maa pe saara jahaan
tere jaisa ho laal jiske yahaan
jo karne chala doosron ka bhalaa
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
Ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hausla
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa

Raahi
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
raahi raahi
ho Himalaya se ooncha tera hauslaa
O o rahi
O o o raahi

Avinash ji

Happily lost 🙂 🙂
Hope you don`t mind my words

@ Prakash ji – thanks !!! hamare khayalat kitne milte julte hain , hamari pasand bhi kitni milti julti hain !! (main sach keh raha hoon, not trying ‘Shashi’ of ‘Trishul’).
I do not mind your comments, but whenever such thing happens, I do feel sad !!(and I am sure all of us would feel same for others).
– However, at my end, I have already undertaken the CA/PA. and Me and Harvey ji hv also taken up the CA/PA. Kindly share your e’mail id please. or drop a mail at my id @ avi_abhang@yahoo.co.in !! I hv an updated MIS ready for the songs shared by me, which I can immediately mail to you.
– My first and foremost objective to join this blog were some special songs from the ‘Seventies’ which are part of my ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’ (raahi o raahi is one of them, and songs from ‘yaadon ki baarat’ also),
so initially I started with sharing these songs, and many are still to be shared, but, after I came to know about other contributors ‘type’ of songs they shared, I understand that most of the songs I shared would be at the ‘common post zone’ now. So till they all get posted the suspense, anxiety, thrill continues and once they are posted IT IS ONLY JOY all over (and now it will a ‘happily lost- but won’ all over ).
– Now, on the second thought I am sure that the songs which are in my wish-list are assured to come soon or later and/or must have been contributed by other team members , so anticipating this I hv reduced / and more or less stopped working on that now. and henceforth I will concentrate on less popular songs or different subjects.
– (As Harvey ji has suggested earlier, It would be more enjoying if all our regular contributors shared their email id so that we can exchange our labor of love).
So the journey continues, please drop me a mail (we can find some solution jointly) , yaad hain na – abhi to ‘lost & found’ film ke bahot se gaane baaki hain…. !! thanks ..
