Genius of Jaidev – 20
================

Radio Ceylon gave me a jolt early today morning, to remind me of Jaidev ji’s ‘Punya-Tithi’.  How could I, a diehard fan of Jaidev ji’s (rather an air conditioner) fail to present his song on our Blog, on this day, in my series ‘Genius of Jaidev? I have many of his songs partially ready for posting, so I selected this one and hurriedly gave finishing touches for presentation.

“Chand Grahan” was a movie that was made sometime in the Seventies but it never got released. It was only in 1997 that the songs of this movie were finally released. By that time, both Mukesh as well as Jaidev had already passed away.  These songs were recorded for a movie by Ramesh Khosla. The music is scored by music maestro Jaidev, while the lyrics for four songs are penned by Kaifi Azmi, the poet par excellence. The songs are sung by nightingale Lata Mangeshkar and legendary Mukesh. These are the last known songs of Late Mukesh to be released.  The movie never happened. And then in 1997, his son Robin Khosla, revived the project and started developing the movie “CHAND GRAHAN” . He also recorded another song with Asha Bhosle. But fate had decided something else for this project and due to unforeseen circumstances, it seems, the film never saw the light of the day.

The song presented here is an absolutely beautiful composition in Jaidev’s characteristic style.  This genius composer keeps amazing me as I keep listening to the songs composed by him repeatedly.  And what can we say about Lata ji, that hasn’t been said or felt already by billions of her fans — simply divine!  She has poured her heart into singing this Meera Bhajan.  Jaidev ji composed this song in Raga ‘Gaud Sarang’.  He also uses touches of Raga ‘Sohni’ when she sings “….. main abhagan rahi soyeri…”, knowing the power of ‘Sohni’ to very effectively create the mood of utter pathos. The use of ‘Bharatiya’ musical instruments like Sitar and Baansuri (Flute) effectively create the desired excellence.

This song, which came out in Lata ji’s voice in ‘Chand Grahan’ album, has earlier been also sung by Runa Laila.  Jaidev must have recorded Lata song first, but since the film was abandoned, he made Runa to sing it on TV.  When this song by Runa Laila came on Doordarshan, I was one of the first to record it on my cassette recorder.  (I had taken out the audio output from my TV, which was not a standard feature then). I underwent a huge mailing expense sending audio cassettes to all of my relatives and friends in India and abroad. (The audio MP3 is available to music lovers on request or even order).

This ‘Meera’ bhajan seems to be a favourite with Jaidev ji.  He has also composed the same bhajan in a very different tune for the 1977 film ‘Andolan’, a version that has been sung by Asha Bhosle.  That is another gem song worth preserving.  Jaidev ji was a maestro far beyond the music directors class in the world of Hindi film music.  Same song, two different tunes with totally different feelings and yet both are Bhajans.  The Asha Bhosle version can be heard at this link.


Song – Piya Ko Milan Kaise Hoye Ri Main Jaanu Naahin (Chand Grahan – UR) (1997) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Meera Bai (Traditional), MD – Jaidev

Lyrics

main jaanyo naahin
main jaanyo naahin
piya ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin
piya ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin

aaye morey sajnaa
phir gaye angana
aaye morey sajnaa
phir gaye angana
main abhaagan
main abhaagan rahi soye ri
main jaanyo naahin
prabhu ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin
piya ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin
 
nis-baasar mohe birhaa sataave
nis-baasar mohe birhaa sataave
kal naa parat pal moye ri
kal naa parat pal moye ri
meera ke prabhu giridhar naagar
meera ke prabhu giridhar naagar
milyo bichhdo mat
milyo bichhdo mat koye ri
main jaanyo naahin
piya ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin

aaye morey sajnaa
phir gaye angana
main abhaagan rahi soye ri
main jaanyo naahin
prabhu ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin
piya ko milan kaise hoye ri main jaanyo naahin

मैं जानयो नाहीं
मैं जानयो नाहीं
पिया को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं
पिया को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं

आए मोरे सजना
फिर गए अंगना
आए मोरे सजना
फिर गए अंगना
मैं अभागन
मैं अभागन रही सोये री
मैं जानयो नाहीं
प्रभु को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं
पिया को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं

निस-बासर मोहे बिरहा सतावे
निस-बासर मोहे बिरहा सतावे
कल ना परत पल मोहे री
कल ना परत पल मोहे री
मीरा के प्रभु गिरिधर नागर
मीरा के प्रभु गिरिधर नागर
मिलयो बिछड़ो मत
मिलयो बिछड़ो मत कोए री
मैं जानयो नाहीं
पिया को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं

आए मोरे सजना
फिर गए अंगना
मैं अभागन रही सोये री
मैं जानयो नाहीं
प्रभु को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं
पिया को मिलन कैसे होये री मैं जानयो नाहीं
