And so wrote the scribe

wafaa jin se ki
bewafaa ho gaye
wo waade mohabbat ke
kya ho gaye

Nowhere other than in love, is the weight felt more heavily of sarcasm of that age old phrase – “promises are meant to be broken”. After the flowers and dreams, the sun and the stars, it is inevitable that the reality checks in. The reality of life that is – the reality of relations, the reality of social variances, the reality of the difficulties of life that will incessantly continue to overwhelm, and above all the realities of personalities. More often than not, it is the personal motivations, personal desires and dogmas, personal fancies and choices, that manifest as roadblocks and potholes on the road to satisfied love. Those who are not well adept at managing and driving around these obstacles, more often than not, find themselves in the wells of misery.

 The theme of love is such. There is a very famous and very frequently quoted sh’er (couplet) from the very famous ghazal by Jigar Moradabaadi, that says

ye ishq nahin aasaan, bas itna samajh lijey
ik aag ka dariyaa hai, aur doob ke jaana hai

This love
Tis not a child’s game
O, be aware
And know this much
It is a river of fire
To be crossed by drowning

In many cases of such fallouts, it is the truant heart that is the culprit. The affections are not steady, the eyes will stray and the heart will start ‘double timing’. Or maybe even completely shift its affiliations. While maintaining a pretension, and sometimes not even that, the heart strikes out a path to another, leaving the earlier partner pining and waiting.

It is true one has no control over another. The emotions that may follow such an episode and its discovery, are disbelief, extreme hurt and pain, and an all consuming anxiety that will at times express itself in vicious anger, or sometimes as resignation and regret. The heart wallows in self pity, feeling to be the helpless victim of the cruel tendencies of the one who was once considered dearest to the heart. The willful deceit and deception breaks the heart – a figurative expression of the feeling inside. And the words that come to the lips are somewhat as expressed in this song.

The song is from the 1955 film ‘Oot Pataang’. In my post of 30th November (‘Kaanta Laaga Re Saanwariya Teekha Teekha’), I had mentioned that this film holds out a sincere promise as a treasure house of delightful songs. Of the eight songs in this film, four are already showcased here. This is the fifth gem of an offering to find its place on the blog. The words from the pen of DN Madhok have been so beautifully strung together into this poignant and sentimental melody by the genius of Vinod. The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. The film is produced by Naveen Chandra Shah under the banner of GM Pictures, and is directed by Chandulal Shah. The cast of actors includes Usha Kiran, Agha, Anwar, Maruti, Jankidas, Indira, Mumtaz Begum, Vaneeta, Rasheed Khan, Shammi Chaudhary, Madhuri, Dubey, Khaja Ahmed, Vijaylakshmi.

The rendering is so soulful, and the words, they will simply slice through the heart, especially the following lines

chale wo sautaniya ke
meri gali ho ke

That he is going to
His new lady love, my rival
Passing through the lane I live in

Aah, what deceitful intent, and what audacity. That these words are written shows there are people like this also existing amongst us. Listen to the song, feel the pain. And contemplate.

 

Song-Mohabbat Ne Kaise Diye Hum Ko Dhokhe (Oot Pataang) (1955) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Vinod

Lyrics

mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
chale wo sautaniyaa ke
meri gali ho ke
ji meri gali ho ke

thham ae dard e ulfat
na kar haaye haaye
na kar haaye haaye
aaaaaaaa aaaa
aaaa aaaaaaaaaa aaa
thham ae dard e ulfat
na kar haaye haaye
na kar haaye haaye
meri yaad aise mein
kyun unko aaye
meri yaad aise mein
kyun unko aaye
wo jaayen jahaan bhi ho
koi na tokey
chale wo sautaniyaa ke
meri gali ho ke
ji meri gali ho ke
mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
chale wo sautaniya ke
meri gali ho ke
ji meri gali ho ke

mohabbat ne ik baat hamko sikhaai
ji hamko sikhaai
aaaaaaaa aaaa
aaaa aaaaaaaaaa aaa
mohabbat ne ik baat hamko sikhaai
ji hamko sikhaai
kabhi dil ki haaye
labon pe na aayee
kabhi dil ki haaye
labon pe na aayee
mera kya hai mar hi to jaaungi ro ke
ro ro ke
ro ro ke
chale wo sautaniyaa ke
meri gali ho ke
ji meri gali ho ke
mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
mohabbat ne kaise diye hamko dhokhe
chale wo sautaniya ke
meri gali ho ke
ji meri gali ho ke

मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
चले वो सौतनिया के
मेरी गली हो के
जी मेरी गली हो के

थम ऐ दर्द ए उल्फ़त
ना कर हाए हाए
ना कर हाए हाए
आsssss आsss
आsss आsssssss आss
थम ऐ दर्द ए उल्फ़त
ना कर हाए हाए
ना कर हाए हाए
मेरी याद ऐसे में
क्यूँ उनको आए
मेरी याद ऐसे में
क्यूँ उनको आए
वो जाएँ जहां भी हो
कोई ना टोके
चले वो सौतनिया के
मेरी गली हो के
जी मेरी गली हो के
मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
चले वो सौतनिया के
मेरी गली हो के
जी मेरी गली हो के

मोहब्बत ने इक बात हमको सिखाई
जी हमको सिखाई
आsssss आsss
आsss आsssssss आss
मोहब्बत ने इक बात हमको सिखाई
जी हमको सिखाई
कभी दिल की हाए
लबों पे ना आई
कभी दिल की हाए
लबों पे ना आई
मेरा क्या है मर ही तो जाऊँगी रो के
रो रो के
रो रो के
चले वो सौतनिया के
मेरी गली हो के
जी मेरी गली हो के
मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
मोहब्बत ने कैसे दिये हमको धोखे
चले वो सौतनिया के
मेरी गली हो के
जी मेरी गली हो के

Thanks for the song, one of my favorites.
I do feel the pain oozing out of such songs and surprisingly they give me deep solace, difficult to describe in words. It takes me very near to true soul music.
