Man ke mandir mein jalti rahe geet sangeet ki aarti

This article is written by Avinash Scrapwala, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a contributor to this blog. This article is meant to be posted in atulsongaday.me.

During my recent communication with Pradeep ji when we were appreciating each other for our ‘love for music’ and I mentioned about how I feel fortunate to have a company of people like ‘Team Atul members’, I wrote to him that “I always thank god for getting me connected to people like you and others in our team ,

It is all by destiny 🙂 and our “musical karmas’”

In reply to this Pradeep ji wrote to me;

“I like the term “musical karma” :). One of a very well known HR trainers that I know here (he also has a filmi connection, he acted as Manisha Koirala’s father in the movie Bombay), once told me that I would describe you and me as “Rasikas of life”, I liked that term too.. So we are all Rasikas of life and music :)”

So when today some of our team members – ‘the rasiks/rasikas of life and music’ will get together and have a ‘musical meeting’, I wish they all enjoy this post and song to celebrate this occasion there”

Though I could not make it to this wonderful meeting I wish them all a very happy gathering there. And, for a change I will put it as ‘mere dil mein bhi sahi aur tere dil mein bhi – jalti rahe geet sangeet ki aarti’

Music for all of us is a part of our life, or should I say it is ‘religion’ for all of us, or may be more than that.

It is also a positive force that keeps us going and a good healer too.

It may not be everything for us, still it is there with all aspects of our life.

And above all it is‘worship’ for those who love music and those who are connected with it in some other way.

So, in our offerings of prayers to the goddess ‘Saraswati’ I sincerely wish that long live this blog and continue with the musical journey forever …

***

All of us love music and we are attached to it for various reasons. For me, it is an ongoing activity which rules my sub-conscious and conscious mind every time.

It motivates me a lot. It acts like an inspirational force for me.

It has been almost since my childhood that I was addicted to Radio for listening songs and as I grow, that continued and the addiction also grows more with collection of cassettes, now collection CDs, getting done recording of songs, searching for rare songs etc etc.

So, music is always there with me in my day to day life.

***

When I was a bachelor the ‘mono cassette recorder’ with me use to start early morning, in fact I used to rise from bed straight to put on a cassette to play (starting with ‘bhupaali’/devotionals, and then moving for brush and tea preparation.

Then, till I left for office it would continue to play and I would start the music again when I would come back from office which would continue till I went to bed. The cassette player had to be auto stopped (usually) as I went to sleep while listening to the songs/albums for that day.

Then, as I joined distance education and I used to study and do assignments at home, I used to listen to music during the breaks of my study or when I wished to take some jigs on my favorite songs. (to ‘unwind’ as they put up nowadays).

***

After getting active with this blog, it has become my daily routine to share some songs either on daily basis or if not sharing them then preparing for the songs to be shared, or searching for the songs that are in my memory since years back and while searching if I find something new (in our case the terminology is ‘old and rare’) then sharing them.

So music is continuously going on in my mind.

At work also whenever I get break or get time to think during intervals I am thinking of songs that are yet to make it to this blog.

Further in today’s stressful life we face many different situations time to time , a music lover like me always finds songs to face the situations, get out of it – if it is a troubled situation or enjoy and celebrate or cheer – if it is something positive that is happening or when I am getting success in any of my assigned tasks (of work or of personal interest).

***

When I am in my daily travel it has now become habit to check for the notifications of the new posts on this blog (on mobile phone), and comment if the song is already familiar to me, and if not, just to keep updated about the new posts.

If I am away from my base-station (Atulology), then also I regularly check for the new posts on my mobile so it keeps me updated as what new posts have come up and if I get time to read the posts I generally comment or congratulate then and there if we finish songs for any single movie or like that.

Few months back, we had to rush to a place about 475 kms away from my base station, as my elder daughter was hospitalized due to sudden illness. When she was hospitalized and her colleagues were with her (and she was out of danger), instead of starting back immediately, we decided to move on early morning next day as it was already late at that time . So I had time to take all my favorite albums with me.

However on the first day the ‘music system’ was under the control of by my younger daughter so we have to listen to mostly the newer songs.

The next two days were more hectic and there was no scope to listen to songs, though prayers were going on in our minds. After my elder daughter was discharged from hospital, my wife and younger daughter accompanied her and stayed at her Hostel room to give her support.

When everything was settled we decided to visit an Aashram on the banks of Narmada River in the Narmada district near Rajpipla. This is the place which we visit at least once in a year and I always wish that I get more chance to visit there and can spend a longer duration there. Well this time we were getting a night stay there and most importantly getting a darshan of Swamiji.

Darshan of Swamiji is possible only few hours starting late night.

As my younger daughter stayed back to support her Didi at the hostel, I and my wife left for the aashram.
Our travel has to be for at least 3 hours one one side, so there was enough time for me to get on with my favorite songs too.

One of the albums that I carried with me was ‘Immortal melodies from Navketan Films: Vol.2-Philosophical’ (SA re ga ma – Bombay Talkies)
(Few years back I had got this one album from a famous online store)

As the playlist proceeds one by one, this song appears!

Man ke mandir mein jalti rahe geet sangeet ki aarti,
Mujhko vardaan de, mujhko vardaan de Maata Saraswati

When the word by word fall on my ear I was relating it with our daily life, the daily activities that we perform and finally we search some time for leisure, some time to take us off from the hectic life, some to time to unwind ourselves…

But now it has become difficult, because, as far as I am concerned I get very less time to play my favorite CD/DVD’s, to listen all the cassettes that I have collected over these 29 years so far. Sometime I get angry with myself for the job I have taken and for the circumstances I have created for myself which give me very less time for myself.

But nonetheless, songs are playing all the time in my mind and what if I cannot listen to music on the CDs or Cassettes, I keep humming different songs according to the changing situations that I am faced with at that juncture in my life. That way I remain connected to music all the time.

The song under discussion today says it all for me. All I can pray to God that ‘sukh dukh mein aap sadaa hamaare saath rehna, aur man ke mandir mein sangeet ki jyot jalaaye rakhna’ (I remember the very first time when I met Swamiji he asked me what more I wished from the Gods as he had already given me a ‘happy life’, so he advised me that whenever I pray to God I should only ask HIM to ‘be with us in our ‘hard times’ as well ‘when we are sailing smooth’)

Haath bhi nahin jab hil sake
Saaz bhi jab nahin paas ho

Maut bhi ho saamne khadi
Mushkil aur har saans ho

Man ke mandir mein jalti rahe
Geet sangeet ki aarti
Mujhko vardaan de
Maata Saraswati

How true it is, because even while going through hard times we stay connected to the divine form of Music – listening, singing and praying Prarthanaa, Bhajans at the ‘Aashram’

Man ke mandir mein jalti rahe – Geet Sangeet ki Aarti

Next step for me was to find this song on YT and share on this song blog. On YT only the audio of this song was available. So I decided to go for the VCD of this film and watch it too, to get details about this song and about the film.

So, I got the VCD of this film ‘Main Tere Liye- 1986’ (from my regular online store).
(Year of the film on the cassette is mentioned as 1986, while myswar.com and IMDB mentions it as 1988)

Here is this brief about the film:

‘Main Tere Liye’ was produced by Dev Anand under ‘Navketans’. This was directed by Vijay Anand. And the Story-Screenplay and Dialogues were also written by him. Music for this film is by Bappi Lahiri and lyrics are also by Vijay Anand. Except this Bhajan which is penned by Neeraj ji.

The film’s starcast includes Suneil Anand (son of Dev Anand), Meenakshi Sheshadri, in lead roles, with Rajendra Kumar, Asha Parekh, Marc Zuber, Shashi Kala, Om Shivpuri, Punit Issar, Gulshan Grover, Gautam Sarin, Sudhir, Sudhir Dalvi, Mushtaq Merchant, Birbal, Bhagwan, Jr.Mehmood and Vikas Anand.

I think this was a ‘flop movie’ and forgotten easily and by that standards can be termed as an ‘obscure’ movie also.

Suneil Anand performs Guitaar in a club also named as ‘Guitaar’. His father Sudhir Dalvi is a Music Teacher.
Suneil falls in love with Meenakshi, but beaten up by her brothers (who are not her real brothers as revealed later) Punit Issar, Gulshan Grover and Sudhir. Om Shivpuri and Shashikala are the main villains. Shashikala has an affair with Om Shivpuri which she hide while marrying Marc Zuber (who is a Captain of a ship and mostly out on the sea).

Asha Parekh is a widow and a nurse and has a daughter, and takes care of the medication of Marc Zuber on the instance of Rajendra Kumar who is the friend of Marc Zuber. However a ‘wrong’ pre-planned injection (by Om Shivpuri) kills Marc Zuber while he suffers a stroke. Finally Rajendra Kumar is proved guilty and sent to jail.
Vijay Anand tries unsuccessfully tries to repeat the ‘twists and turns’ ala ‘Johny Mera Naam’ at the end of this film where the control shifting between the good and the evil.

Finally the Good wins and everything is Ok.

This song happens when Suneil Anand is beaten up by the villains – Punit Issar breaks his hand- (Na rahega haath Na bajegi Guitaar) and Suneil cannot move his hand. His father in the film Sudhir Dalvi while nursing his hand sings this song on screen with his ‘shishyas’ and later on Suneil’s friends joining to it.
In the film, only the mukhda of this song is repeated again when Sudhir Dalvi is killed by Om Shivpuri and taken for his final rites.

Here is this plot summary of the film available on IMDB: (Main tere liye 1988)

Rinku Sagar is the sole heiress of an estate and wealth. She lives with her uncle and aunt, Makkad and Anjana Saxena respectively. Both of them, including their three sons, Dinesh, Ramesh, and Harish, are manipulating her for their own gains. They even have forged wills ready with her signature. They plan to get her married to one of their sons, sign over the estate to him, leave her penniless and divorced, and they themselves plan to live comfortably for the rest of their lives. What they do not know that Rinku’s mother is alive, and she will do anything to protect her daughter, if necessary even kill. For, Rinku’s mom is a former convict, having served time for homicide.

हाथ भी नहीं जब हिल सके
साज़ भी जब नहीं पास हो
मौत भी हो सामने खड़ी
मुश्किल में और हर सांस हो
मन के मंदिर में जलती रहे
गीत संगीत की आरती
मन के मंदिर में जलती रहे
गीत संगीत की आरती
मुझको वरदान दे
मुझको वरदान दे ए
माता सरस्वती ई ई
माता सरस्वती
मन के मंदिर में जलती रहे
गीत संगीत की आरती

आ आ आ आ

गीत गाने से ही तो यहाँ
मिटता हैं दर्द प्राण का
मिटता हैं दर्द प्राण का
जिसको कहते हैं संगीत हम
रूप है ये भगवान का

मुझको वरदान दे
मुझको वरदान दे ए
