“Toofaan Aur Diya”(1956) was produced by V Shantaram and directed by Prabhat Kumar for Rajkamal Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Satish Vyas, Nanda, Rajendra Kumar, Vatsala, Shanta Kumari, Krishna Kumar, R V Ishwar, K Date, Ulhas etc in it.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the eighth song from the movie.

This song is sung by Lata. The picturisation shows this song being played in the background as Nanda is shown dusting her home.

Lata is the singer of this soothing Meera Bhajan. The lyrics are naturally attributed to Meera Bai. Though Meera Bai lived several centuries ago, much before the era of movies, she has become quite a popular lyricist for Hindi movies. 😉 This is her 24th song in the blog as a lyricist. I am convinced that it is just a matter of time before we will have a century of songs in the blog with Meera Bai as the lyricist.

Music is composed by Vasant Desai.



Song-Giridhaari mhaane chaakar raakho ji (Toofaan aur Diya)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Meera Bai, MD-Vasant Desai


chaakar raakho ji

mhaane chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho ji
mhaane chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho ji

chaakar rah soon
aag laga soon
nit uthhi darshan pa aa soon
vrindaawan ki kunj galin mein
vrindaawan ki kunj galin mein
govind leela gaa aa soon
mhaane chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho ji

oonche oonche mahal banaaun
oonche oonche mahal banaaun
bich bich raakhun baari
saanwariya ke darshan paaun
saanwariya ke darshan paaun
?? dhari
mhaane chaakar rakho
chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho ji

o o o o o
meera ke prabhu gahir gambhira
meera ke prabhu gahir gambhira
hriday raho ji dheera
aadhi raat prabhu darshan deenho
aadhi raat prbhu darshan deenho
prem nadi ke teera
mhaane chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho
chaakar raakho ji
giridhaari ee
