Raaton ka raja hoon main

Today is Raja Swaminathan’s second birthday! On this blog, I mean! I don’t know Raja’s age, but what I see and hear from him, he must be very young and very active. As many of you must already know, Raja is a passionate blogger. Yes, passionate is the word, which I would use to describe Raja in one word. Raja is passionate about politics, social politics and not party politics. Yes, he has a keen sense of justice and injustice. He is aware of the many wrong things going on in this world. I admire this quality in him very highly. What I admire about him is also his ability to put all his wonderful thoughts in words. When I sit and torture myself with the composition of each sentence. To him his nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs flow with an ease which would put a bubbling stream to shame. What’s more they flow in perfect syntax. Then he also has a wonderful sense of humour, particularly his PJs are very funny. And going by all his posts and comments on fb, Raja comes across as a very nice person. Now, you must have realized that I have not met him, although I’ve a feeling I already know him quite well. Dearest Raja, please try to always remain the person you are, Happy Birthday!

Well, before I go ahead and write some words about the song below, I should say Raja is a very modest person and never in his wildest dreams would he even think of being boastful like the hero of the film does in this song below. Maybe if Dheeraj Kumar had been a bit modest he would have succeeded as a hero. Yes, my dear readers, Dheeraj Kumar of “Kahan Gaye Woh Log”-fame started as a hero. He plays a thief with James Bond like gadgets and a penchant to sleep around with women or at least boast about it. And then there are the bad guys headed by turned-bad-to-rescue-daddy Jayshree T, Shatrughan Sinha, Hitler-like Jeevan and a mysterious ‘madam’, who are all set to destroy India. They are served in this purpose by big machines with colourful bulbs and pulsating o-meters. Even though all of these are enticing stuff, I have managed to stop myself being lured to watch this film.

Enjoy this song and raise a toast to the rightful Raja, Raja Swaminathan!

Song-Raaton kaa raajaa hoon main (Raaton Ka Raja)(1970), Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Mere liye aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa gulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa
hoon main

mere liye aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa ghulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa
hoon main

mehfil saje
doloon jidhar se
saaqi behke
meri nazar se
mehfil saje
mehfil saje
doloon jidhar se
saaqi behke
meri nazar se
chaahoon to abhi
khud aaye chalke jaam
mere liye aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa ghulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa
hoon main

khidki khule
mujhe bulaaye
mehlon mein hai
mere hi saaye
khidki khule
khidki khule
mujhe bulaaye
mehlon mein hai
mere hi saaye
sote jaagte ae
sab jaane meraa naam
mere liye
aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa ghulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa hoon main

maine jawaan
honthon ki laali
aksar palkon se hi churaa le
maine jawaan
maine jawaan
honthon ki laali
aksar palkon se hi churaa le
saare gulbadan
mujhe karte hain salaam
mere liye aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa ghulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa hoon main
mere liye aati hai shaam
chandaa bhi hai
meraa ghulaam
dharti se sitaaron tak hai
meraa intejaam
raaton kaa raajaa hoon main
raaton kaa raajaa hoon main

Kya baat hai. Kahaan kho gaye sab? All are doing silentwork after firework… 🙂 Koi baat nahin, sab ki taraf se main mubaarakbaad de deti hoon.
So, Raja saab, Happy b’day to you. As Pamirji has said, this is your second birthday on the blog, means going through the terrible two phase 😉 I need to think before I make any commitment for our December gangout. 😉 Pata nahin kya haal ho jaaye 😆 Hope you had a wonderful day.
Regards
Khyati

Happy Birthday , Raja!

What a wonderful write up, Harv. Your words also flowed out beautifully.
As beautifully as Raja’s do, I must say.

Am surprised this song was unposted yet. Usually it is hard to find an unposted Raja song. Perfect choice, Harv.

Happy Birthday Raja Ji! Have a nice day and a wonderful year ahead! I agree with Pamir ji, you do not look your age at all. You can pass off as someone 10-15 years younger than you really are easily :).

A very Happy Birthday to Atul’s first tormentor {don’t forget he was the first one on the blog to comment as well as send a list of 2 songs on the Farmaish page, which grew to 10 per farmaish comment and then opened the flood gates ;-)}
and yes i agree he is very energetic and young and 2 years (i agree)

Thank you all so much for your greetings!!! Am sorry I did not respond earlier – I was travelling a bit and somewhat busy in the process.

And of course, a special thanks to Harvey for this lovely post that makes me feel special. Although, I do think he has considerably exaggerated my qualities. Harvey, really looking forward to meeting you soon. 🙂
