Bahut dinon se bichhda man ka meet mila

In our day to day life we face some or the other discomforting and problematic situations, most of which get sorted out over time. The end of such situations is the beginning of happiness.

One of the discomforting situations which I have started facing in the post- retirement years is that I suddenly remember the tune of a song which I had heard quite often in my younger days on the radio but I am not able to recall the wordings or other details. I become restless until I find the song. It is by chance that I get to listen to the song on YT or on the Blog after months. And the pleasure I get in solving this kind of ‘puzzle’ is akin to attaining nirvana.

A few days back, I was again in this tricky situation. I suddenly recalled a melodious tune of a song which I had listened on the radio sometime in the later 60s when I had become a proud owner of a transistor radio. I had no clue to the mukhda wordings of the song. Nor could I recall the name of the film and the singers. The only clues I could faintly remember were that the song was from a mythological film and it was a duet. So the canvas was restricted for a successful searching of the particular song.

The first thing I did was to search for the duet songs covered in the Blog from mythological films. To begin with, I searched films starting with ‘Sant’ and ‘Sati’. There were 10 films covered in the Blog with such prefixes. I drew a blank as there were only a couple of duet songs covered in the Blog under these prefixes. Thereafter I randomly checked songs of other mythological films covered in the Blog without any success. I gave up my efforts to search the song.

Two days back, I was looking for a song ‘chamke chaand poonam ka’ from the film ‘Mahasati Behula (1964)’ on the YT which is not covered in the Blog. It so happened that on the same page of YT, there was a video clip of a song from the film ‘Mahasati Anusuya’ (1965). I listened to this song. And eureka, I got the song I was looking for. It was a coincidence that both these songs were from the mythological films with prefix ‘Mahasati’ which I overlooked in my searches.

I have great pleasure in presenting the ‘lost’ song from my memory which I have recalled now. The song is ‘bahut dino se bichhda man ka meet mila’ from the film MAHASATI AUNUSUYA (1965). The song is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur and Mukesh. The song is written by Bharat Vyas which is set to music by S N Tripathi, the doyen of historical and mythological film music. The song is picturised on Jayshree Gadkar and Asim Kumar. There were as many as 17 songs in the film, all written by Bharat Vyas.

The film was produced under the banner of Ranglok Pictures and was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The star cast included Jayshree Gadkar, Asim Kumar, Anita Guha, Sahu Modak, Sundar, Jeevan, Babloo etc.

After listening to this song, old timers would surely recall that this was one of the popular songs played on the Vividh Bharati in the 60s. For me, this song is ‘bahut dino se bichhda man kaa geet mila’.

Lyrics

bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa
bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa
mere geet ko rootha hua sangeet milaa aa

bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa

neele gagan mein aasha kaa chanda chamkaa
o o o o o
o o o
neele gagan mein aasha kaa chanda chamkaa
jhoomi kiran jab ghoonghat uthha poonam kaa

mere nayan mein mukhda tumhaara damkaa
prano ki paayal mein goonja hai swar chham chham kaa
bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa
mere geet ko rootha hua sangeet milaa aa
bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa

din ye milan ke sundar suhaane anoothhe
din ye milan ke sundar suhaane anoothhe
aise madhur pal hamse kabhi na roothhe
ab to piya tere haathon se haath na chhoote
apna salona sapna kabhi na toote
bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa
mere geet ko rootha hua sangeet milaa aa
bahut dinon se bichhda man kaa meet milaa

Sadanandji,
This is my fav song. I sing it quite often. Thanks. If you had asked me you could have spared yourself the time and effort. Anyway you enjoyed your eureka moment. Next time maybe.

Dear Nitin ji,
The problem was that Sadanand ji was not even able to recollect the ‘mukhda’. so how could he have asked you? 😉
Oh yes, by singing you the tune. :-).
That would have been an easy thing then.
By the way, it is one of my favourite songs as well.
Thank you very much Sadanand ji for the post and reminding us of this excellent romantic number from a mythological film. Tried and trusted combination of S.N. Tripathi & Bharat Vyas, who were both masters of their craft.
Thanks and regards,
Avadh Lal
