Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao

This is the 8th song in the series “The Great Souls of India”, sung by Mohantara Talpade, in the film BHAKTA DHRUV-1947.

Indian holy books and Puranas are full of very interesting stories. Most stories have a base and a Moral at the end. Not all stories are imaginary. Actually, many of the stories can be traced historically through corroborating literatures or some kind of Historical monuments, confirming most of the story contents.

The Indian culture is such that a lot of guidance can be got from these stories. Though some of the customs and systems have become out of date and out of place nowadays, the lessons that these stories gave and the virtues espoused in them are very much relevant even today.

We have stories like BHAKTA PUNDALIK (who had no time even for the God-Vithoba- when he was busy in serving his parents) and BHAKTA SHRAVAN KUMAR (who carried his old parents in a ” KAWAD”, for doing Teerthyatra), and we also have stories of BHAKTA DHRUV and BHAKTA PRAHLAD, whose respective fathers were against them !

Bhakta Dhruv was an interesting film made by Prakash Films in 1947. When the cast was finalised, the Director Vijay Bhatt was very much worried for he had not yet found a suitable actor for Narad’s role. One day, when he was sitting in his office, in came a person with Narad’s get up- clean shaven head with a shikha at the back, Ektara in one hand, cymbals in the other, Pitamber etc etc. Vijay Bhatt was so impressed that he gave the role immediately to that actor. His name was Omkar Nath Dhar,or Dhar Kashmiri as he was known in the industry then. Vijay Bhatt also changed his name to JEEVAN, who went on to do more than 100 roles of Narad in his career.

The cast of the film was Shashi Kapoor, Mridula, Jeevan, Shantarin, Ramesh Sinha etc. The Lyricists were Moti BA and Pt. Indra. The music was by Shankar Rao Vyas. There were 11 songs in the film sung by Lalita Deulkar, Mohantara, Amirbai, Rajkumari and others.

Now the name Shashi Kapoor in the cast is for the role of young Bhakta Dhruv. Most people and most Internet sites credit this film to Shashi Kapoor (brother of Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor), but in reality, this Shashi Kapoor is a different artist. Here is an excerpt from my own article, “Same Name Confusions’,about this different Shashi Kapoor-

” SHASHI KAPOOR jr. and SHASHI KAPOOR Sr.

Till few years back I was not aware of these two Name-alikes. Truth is, I never went into details of the claim that as a child star Shashi kapoor (son of Prithwiraj Kapoor and brother of Raj Kapoor) acted in about 20 films. My mind had coolly accepted it since it was a practice in actors’ families.

When I started writing about old films etc, I suspected this, as the timing was not matching and I felt there must be some other shashi kapoor also.

Last year the other SHASHI KAPOOR appeared on the Internet,on his own. I had a question- answer session with him and the jigsaw puzzle was solved once for all.

Most of the Internet sites, including Wiki, report that Shashi Kapoor ( brother of Raj Kapoor) acted as a child star in about 20 films and the films were Mythological, social and Raj Kapoor films. In reality, he has acted as a child star only in 5 films-including 2 Raj Kapoor films.

Born on 18-3-1938, at the age of 10 years,Shashi kapoor did the first child role of Raj kapoor in Aag-48, later came Bhakta Bilwamangal-48,P atanga-49, Sangram-50 and his last film as a child star was in Awara-1951.

The other Name- Alike was SHASHI CHAND KAPOOR,son of film producer F C Kapoor, younger brother of film script writer Ravi kapoor and a cousin of singer Mahendra Kapoor. He was born on 7-9-1934 at Bombay.

Being a sweet good looker, he did a minor role in Lady Doctor-1944. In the next 11 years, he acted in 21 films till 1955. His Filmography is-
Lady Doctor-1944, Parakh, Meena,Bachpan, Tadbir, Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani, Renuka, Bhakta Dhruv, Bhakta Gopal Bhaiya, Shaheed, Sati Ahilya, Ram Darshan, Samadhi,Veer Babruwahan, Murliwala, Mordhwaj, Sanskar, Dana pani, Mahapooja, Parvati Vivah and his last film Bhagwat Mahima in 1955.

After this he stopped working in films. He was more interested in studying maths. He graduated in 1955, did his M.Sc.in 57 and LL.b in 1963,from Bombay University. Meanwhile he worked as a Lecturer in Wilson college, Kirti college and worked in State Bank of India during 1958 to 1963. He then left for USA and did his Ph.D. from Western Michigan University. In this University he worked as a Faculty member in maths from 67 to 96. he retired as Professor Emieritus in 1997. He is happily settled in USA.

Most of the films Shashi chand acted in are credited to Shashi Kapoor, as he was more famous, from a major filmi family and also because Shashi chand Kapoor was not here to clarify the facts.

But for his own appearance on Internet and hard work by Cineplot and Maitri Manthan sites, the matter would not have been clarified, to the general public.

So, next time Remember, the real child star was SHASHI CHAND KAPOOR and not Shashi kapoor ! ”

Now, coming to the story of Bhakta Dhruv, here is a short note, adapted from telugubhakti.com. I am not giving the story of the film separately as it is the same.

Once upon a time there lived a king called Uttanapada. He had two wives by name Suneethi and Suruchi. The first wife Suneethi was good-natured but the King loved his second wife more. To be more specific the cunning second wife, Suruchi saw to it that he loved her more. She didn’t stop there. She also made sure that, he treated his first wife as a slave. Automatically he ignored Suneethi’s son, Dhruv too. Dhruv was older than Suruchi’s son, Uttam. So Suruchi lived in constant fear that Dhruv would be crowned as a king. The five year old Dhruv was unaware of his step mother’s scheming nature and so he played wholeheartedly with his younger brother. Suneethi guided her son in the right path.

One day, Uttam sat on the lap of his father in the royal court. Dhruv saw the scene and the brotherly instinct prompted him to rush to his father to sit on the other lap, but there was no love lost from his father. Adding insult to injury, Suruchi, who was seated beside the king sneered at Dhruv. She said, ‘Oh Dhruv! you have no right to sit over the King’s lap. Only my son is priviledged to do so. You lost the right as you were born to a slave like Suneethi. If you so desire, pray to God to be born in my womb. Then you can sit on your father’s lap and even on the throne. So saying she pushed him aside bluntly. Nobody dared to oppose her atrocities. When the king himself was dumbfounded, how could his courtiers or ministers raise their voice against the beautiful but cruel Queen?

Dhruv was deeply hurt at her cruel behaviour and at his father’s indifference. He cried bitterly but it fell into deaf ears. Finding no consolation from any corner he went to his
mother crying bitterly.

Suneethi’s heart melted at the bruises on the body and at the pain on his heart. She was told the whole scene by the servant maid. Dhruv showered a number of questions to his mother. ‘Ma!
What harm have I done to my aunt? Why is she so cruel to me? You know how much I love my brother and how much I respect her ! But do you know how mean she is? I am cursed for being
born as your son ! If I want to sit on my father’s lap, it seems I should pray to God to be born again in her womb. Then she will give me the chance of sitting on his lap. What’s so
special about her! If there is any specialty, you should have it, as King’s first wife! Why is father so dumbfounded? Don’t I have a right to sit on his lap? Why didn’t he say anything to console me? Suneethi cried bitterly for her son’s miserable position, but she controlled herself in no time and consoled her son. ‘Dhruv I am helpless.I can only feel sorry for you. I may be his first wife but my position is worse than that of a servant maid. As my son, you are destined to suffer! Suruchi is right! Had you been born as her son, you would have been in Uttam’s place. God takes care of helpless souls like us. Have
faith in him. A day will come when those who laughed at you will respect you. Life doesn’t remain the same forever, Day follows night. Till such time have patience. Don’t be
disheartened by the comments of others. God sees the truth but waits. He will punish or reward a person at the opportune moment.’

Dhruv had a flash of an idea! Mother asked him to have faith in God. Stepmother asked him to pray to God to be born as her son. Isn’t it silly? Should he waste his energy on penance to be born as her son? What benefit would he get in return by doing so? He would be blessed with the power to sit on his father’s lap! Is it so great a task that he should pray wholeheartedly? Is it the crown of Lord Indra? Is she worried that he would usurp the kingdom and deprive her son of the royal crowning? If at all he was going to do penance, he would rather do it for a nobler cause. He would ask for a higher and permanent position. He would undertake any hardship in prayer for that. He revealed all these thoughts to his mother and sought her blessings to go into the forest to meditate upon God in peace. ‘I am sure I can achieve what I want if you bless me. I am inspired by your words. If we have zeal and undaunted spirit, we will achieve what we want.’ Mother was shocked at his desire. She tried to dissuade him. ‘My son! What made you get such a strong desire! You are a mere boy of five. Life in the forest is not like a bed of roses. You will have a tough time there with the harsh weather and the wild animals. You cannot get tasty food. You cannot do penance like the Rushis. Moreover how can I live without you? You are my only hope.’ Dhruv’s spirit remained undaunted. The lessons of faith the mother had imbibed in him earlier came to the forefront then. He replied, ‘Mother! Don’t you worry! Don’t you remember your stories of Sadhus and wild animals? You said that in the ashram of Sadhus domesticated cows and deer play with tigers. You also said that the wild animals know whom to harm and whom to love. Regarding my stature as a boy, I can bear with any situation. For that matter you told me quite often that if we hope to achieve anything we should have determination and will power. So, mother, please bless me and send me on my mission. Leave the rest to God. She saw that the boy had formed a firm opinion already. So, she blessed him and advised him to continue his faith in the Lord, since he alone would help him. He proceeded on his way, secretly.

On the way he met Narada. Narada being a saint, knew the mission of Dhruv but he wanted to test him. He asked him his story. Dhruv didn’t know who he was. He narrated his grievances at length. Narada tried to convince him first. He said, Don’t take such hasty decisions. Insult is one thing we can never escape. I wonder if you know me. I am Narada. I help everyone in all the three lokas only to be criticized as ‘Kalahabhojan’. I am neither disturbed by their comments nor did I put an end to my friendly behaviour. So ignore such rudeness. Accept whatever comes in your life as God’s Prasad. Your stepmother might have insulted you in a weak moment, but now she might be repenting her words. Moreover think of the grief you would have caused to your mother and father. Attaining God’s blessings is not all that easy. So, now you go back. Try it later after you grow up.

Dhruv replied politely but with a determination ‘Oh Rushi! I am blessed by your Darshan! I deem it as a good sign. I was wondering how to do the penance. Please guide me in those lines. I want to attain such an elevated post which nobody else in my clan had attained. My mother knows it and she has blessed me. So please don’t discourage me.

Narada was impressed by Dhruv’s persistence. He said, ‘Dear son! I like your undaunted spirit. You will definitely attain God’s blessings. Go to Madhuvan forest beside Yamuna River. Go there and meditate upon God. Do pranayamam, control your sense organs and chant ‘Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya’. If you surrender yourself to God totally, God will definitely manifest himself before you. But beware! Before you have the Lord’s Darsan, Indra will spoil your penance in as many ways as possible. He might send Devatas to dishearten you or wild animals to frighten you. Remain as firm as you are now. Your prayers will be answered.’

Dhruv followed accordingly. He thrived on the wild fruits and leaves available in the forest. His penance reached heights as the months rolled by. He stood on one foot and prayed
incessantly with concentration. Narada was right! Indra sent wild animals, which roared at Dhruv. Dhruv was least bothered. Devatas came in the guise of devils and demons. One Devata
came with crocodile tears, in the guise of his mother pleading him to go back home. Another Devata came as Suruchi to plead him to forgive her. Dhruv could not be fooled so easily. He
stood steadfast in different seasons Sun and shower could affect him in no way.

God answered his prayers. Lord Vishnu manifested himself before Dhruv on his Garuda Vaahan!

The sight of the four armed God with his Sankhu and Chakra filled Dhruv’s heart with ecstasy.

He prostrated himself before God. He wanted to shower prayers on God but he was too young to do so! God touched his Sankhu to his cheeks to fulfil his desire. Then there was a spontaneous overflow of his powerful emotions.

God said, ‘I know what you want? Reaching great heights is not an easy task, but still I will bless you with that I will create a Dhruv Lok for you. Other Lokas may perish but your Loka continues to remain. The stars, Lord Yama, Indra seven Rushis and Kasyap will rotate round you but not now. Time is not yet ripe for that. Go back to your kingdom, rule it after your father, hand it over to your son and then pray to me. You will reach the saptarshi mandal.

Dhruv want back to his family. The father and mothers were overwhelmed with joy on his return. His younger brother showered his love on him. The courtiers and the people gave him a warm welcome.

Dhruv succeeded his father to the throne. In due course married Bhrami, Sinsumara prajapati’s daughter. He begot two sons. They were named Kalpa and Vatsara. He also married Ila,
vayudeva’s daughter and gave birth to a son and a daughter.

Once his younger brother Uttam went for hunting to the vicinity of Himalayas. There he was killed by the Yakshasas. Suruchi was grieved by death of her only son. She betook herself to the forests to find peace, but faced a tragic death there.

This news angered Dhruv and waged a war against Yakshasas. The Yakshasas inspite of their tricks were no match to Dhruv. They were dying in clusters. It appeared as if their entire
clan would be washed away. So Dhruv’s grandfather Swayambhuva reasoned out with Dhruv. ‘You have no right to destroy the entire clan just because one yaksa killed your brother. God will be impressed by those who have patience with elders, pity for the inferior ones, friendship with equals and sense of oneness with all the creatures. God decides their life span. You, who had the darsan of God, should not fall a prey to the petty jealousies of human beings. Moreover, the Yakshas are the assistants of Kubera. Kubera is a close friend of Parameswara. This act of yours will involve the anger of both Kubera and Paramesa. So, seek forgiveness from them both. Dhruv listened to his grandfather’s words, and gave up war.

Kubera manifested himself before Dhruv and inculcated jnana to him. He explained how the soul is different from the body and how we attach ourselves to the body, being unaware of the all
pervasiveness of the soul.

Dhruv earned the name of a kind ruler. When the time was ripe, he crowned his son Utkal as king and reached Badari. There he prayed to the Lord. Lord sent him a pushpak viman. God’s
assistants Nandu and Sanandu came out of the viman, bowed to Dhruv and requested him to get into it. As he was about to do so, he thought of his mother. The Lord’s assistants told him
that she was already on her way to Heaven in another viman, Dhruv was happy.

Dhruv’s viman shot its way up the sky, beyond the Saptarshi Mandal to an elevated position.

Due to the grace of Lord Vishnu, Dhruv became a brilliant star. He is known as pole star. That area is known as Dhruv Mandal.

Dhruv, the pole star, guides us to seek the unattainable and shows us how it can be attained with an undaunted spirit and an invincible soul!

Now,let us enjoy the song from this film,shot on Dhruv (Shashi kapoor sr.) and Narad (Jeevan). It is sung by Mohantara Talpade.

Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao

mohe adbhut roop dikhaao o
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao

jis roop ko dhyaani dhyaave

aur Yogi yog lagaave

jo jyoti biraaje hriday beech
tum jyoti wahi pragataao o
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhao

Nakh jyoti se jag ujiyaala
Charanan choomat ban maala
kati ?? pat pitaambar dhar
Kati ?? pat pitambar
Shyaamal ghan badan niraala
Shyaamal ghan badan niraala
is man ka moh mitaao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao

Wah roop chaturbhuj nyaara
Wah roop chaturbhuj nyaara
mukh chandrawadan ujiyaara
mukh chandrawadan ujiyara
do naina kamal sareekhe
Sir mor mukut ati pyaara
haathon mein lekar shankh chakra
haathon mein lekar shankh chakra
aur gadda padm tum aao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao
Prabhu apni jhalak dikhaao

main moodh mand mati baalak
main moodh mand mati baalak
jag chod sharan me aayaa
jag chod sharan me aaya
tum deen bandhu karuna nidhaan
jo apna das banaya
mujhe apna roop dikhaaya
ab charan dhuli de jaoo
Ab charan dhuli de jaoo

Thank you very much for your appreciation.
Most people read the articles but dont convey their opinions. It is comments such as yours confirm my faith that there are people who like to read about religion/old films/old music and old matters concerning filmdom,in general.
These comments not only reconfirm my faith but also they work as encouragement to continue.
Thank you once again.

I have read the biography of Renuka Dasgupta (nee Renuka Sengupta),a Bengali singer of Rabindra Sangeet,nazrulgeeti and Atulprasad Sen geets. She was married to Hirendrachandra Dasgupta,an Engineer and spent her life in Calcutta(22-8-1910 to
1-1-1991).There is no mention of her singing any Hindi or Bangla Film songs,anytime.
There were 2 songs sung by Mohantara,in the above film. One is this song and the other was ‘Tum bhi vo,Hum mein bhi vo’. The record no. is N 26994 ( 2 songs on two sides).
If you can give us some reference about her singing this song,it will be easier for us to probe further.

Sudeep Sengupta ji,

Are we talking about the same singer or are talking about different ones ?
You say her name before marriage was Renuka Roy Choudhuri and after marriage she became Renuka Sengupta. if it is so,the one I mentioned is different than your mother.
OK. Now about her Hindi songs-
1. Biswi Sadi – 1945 had music by PANNALAL GHOSH and NOT by Anil Biswas.
2. Yes there is one song titled-” Aya hai baghiya mein kaun nirala”, mentioned in Hindi Film Geet Kosh by Harmandir singh Hamraz ji. However there is no mention of any singers for this song. So it is difficult to know who sang it. As the record No. given is GE 3545,obviously there is no name mentioned even on the Record,otherwise it would have been given by him. This makes the matter more complex to resolve.
3.About the song in Patrani-1956,the song is sung by Lata,Usha and Meena.
4. names of singers in chorus are never mentioned anywhere. So if she was a Chorus singer,her name will not feature anywhere.

Under these circumstances,it is difficult for us to accept what you claim,unless there is some verifiable evidence,which can be corroborated with other matters.
We will be too glad to receive any further proof/evidence from you,so that justice can done to the real singer.
Thanks.
