The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What to write about the voice for which no information is apparently traceable.  Many artists of the 1930s have become obscure.  The Indian cinema industry is notorious for ignoring its own history and roots.  There have been no industry supported or sponsored programs or efforts aimed as compiling and collating the history of its own.

Akbar Khan Durrani Peshawari – a voice that appears to be a trained classical singer, has no traceable information available, other than of course the listings in the Geet Kosh, that identify maybe about 5 songs sung by him. Searching on the YouTube, one can locate maybe about four or five of his songs, all of which are not identified in the Geet Kosh.  There are two songs from the film ‘Sultaana’ (1934), which are available in his voice.  Both are wonderful gems – “Kitaab e Dard mein Likha Mere Gham Ka Fasaana Hai” and “Mushkil Kushaa Hai Naam Tera”.  On the blog, we have one more song in his voice already posted; the film is ‘Postman’ (1938) and the song “Hauslaa Aashiq Ko Chaahiye Dil Ko Lagaane Ke Liye“.

The song I present today is another gem of a song from the 1936 film ‘Sunehra Sansaar’.  The lyrics writer is identified as Vijay Kumar and the music direction is by the redoubtable KC Dey.  I turn my request to the knowledgeable friends and readers of this blog to kindly help in posting more information for the singer Akbar Khan Durrani Peshawari.

The song has been posted online by Shalin Bhatt ji.  The YouTube link informs that the image uploaded with this song is that Kamla Jharia and Vijay Kumar. These are two names that appear in the cast list of actors of this film.

The lyrics of this song have been identified with the help from Shri Harmandir Singh ji ‘Hamraaz’, who helped to correct the lyrics as I had scripted on listening to the song.  My first impression on listening to this song was that it could have been a rail song.  But as we delve into the verses, we find that the intent of this song is different.  Is it talking about life?  So one more request to other readers and friends to add more about the song and its verses.

A fabulous sound from eighty years ago – lively and inviting.  Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Chhakaa Chhak Chhakaa Chhak Chali Jaa Rahi Hai (Sunehra Sansaar) (1936) Singer – Akbar Khan Durrani Peshawari, Lyrics – Vijay Kumar, MD – KC Dey

Lyrics

chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
jo bichhde huye the unhe laa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak

lavezoo kisi khoobru ka nahaana
lavezoo kisi khoobru ka nahaana
dabey paaon jab iska nazdeek aana
wo aanchal se maahru ka munh ko chhupaana
wo aanchal se maahru ka munh ko chhupaana
idhar iska ga gaa ke usko sunaana
idhar iska ga gaa ke usko sunaana
ye is waqt bhi kuchh na kuchh ga rahi hai
ye is waqt bhi kuchh na kuchh ga rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
jo bichhde huye the unhe laa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak

wo gaaon ke har shakhs ko jaanti hai
badi amma ko khoob pehchaanti hai
udhar usko ko dekha
idhar tham gayi ye
udhar usko ko dekha
idhar tham gayi ye
kabhi vehre sijda wahin jam gayi hai
kabhi vehre sijda wahin jam gayi hai
magar is ghadi to udi jaa rahi hai
magar is ghadi to udi jaa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak chali jaa rahi hai
jo bichhde huye the unhe laa rahi hai
chhakaa chhak chhakaa chhak

छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
जो बिछड़े हुये थे उन्हे ला रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क

लवेज़ू किसी खूबरू का नहाना
लवेज़ू किसी खूबरू का नहाना
दबे पाओं जब इसका नजदीक आना
वो आँचल से माहरु का मुंह को छुपाना
वो आँचल से माहरु का मुंह को छुपाना
इधर इसका गा गा के उसको सुनाना
इधर इसका गा गा के उसको सुनाना
ये इस वक़्त भी कुछ ना कुछ गा रही है
ये इस वक़्त भी कुछ ना कुछ गा रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
जो बिछड़े हुये थे उन्हे ला रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क

वो गाँव के हर शख्स को जानती है
बड़ी अम्मा को खूब पहचानती है
उधर उसको देखा
इधर थम गई ये
उधर उसको देखा
इधर थम गई ये
कभी वहरे सिज्दा वहीं जम गई ये
कभी वहरे सिज्दा वहीं जम गई ये
मगर इस घड़ी तो उडी जा रही है
मगर इस घड़ी तो उडी जा रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क चली जा रही है
जो बिछड़े हुये थे उन्हे ला रही है
छका छक्क छका छक्क

Nitin ji,

The list of songs by Akbar Khan Durrani Peshawari that you have inserted above is woefully incomplete. If you are getting this information from Wikipedia / myswar / earthmusic, please be informed that these sources are in no way complete references and neither they are accurate. For pulling together such information, we have to refer to multiple sources, and of course, check and verify before committing to print.

Pulling up this name on You Tube will bring up 8 or 9 songs right away. These songs have been posted by music lovers who have the records and have identified the singer. Further, the Geet Kosh also lists another two songs (not available), from the 1936 film ‘Baaghi Sipahi’.

I would once again request that either you should post complete and verified information. If not, please append a sentence that acknowledges that the data you are posting may be incomplete and inaccurate.

Thanks and rgds
Sudhir

I have not said the info is complete. It is just additional info. If anybody wants to add further, he is free to do so. But sad to add nobody is doing it.

Sudhirji,

Kaun Hai Kiska Meet Murakh
The Abla song is not available on U-Tube>a challenge people to upload it. Why copy U-Tube blindly which is accessible to all.
I have not referred to any of the sites mentioned by you.
