“Ham Ek Hain” (1946), a Prabhat Film Company Limited production, was a movie with a message. in this movie, Durga Khote, a noble widowed matriarch brings up many orphan kids in addition to her own son. These kids are her own son Shankar (Dev Anand), and orphans Yusuf (Rehman), John (Rane) and Durga (Rehana). As can be seen, she is raising three boys of three different religions as her own, plus one girl of low caste , thus sending a strong message of “Ham ek Hain” (We are one).

This movie had many debutants in it. All actors playing Durga Khote’s kids were debutants, as was Kamla Kotnis, who plays Dev Anand’s love interest. P L Santoshi, who wore multiple hats of lyricist, dialogue writer and director, made his directorial debut with this movie.

This story may have inspired countless movies in the coming decades. it was a movie with a strong matriarch, which may have inspired other movie makers of the future to come up with movies of this theme. The movie clearly paves way for future movies with the theme of unity in diversity. “Amar Akbar Anthony” is ae example that readily comes to mind.

Eight songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the ninth song from the movie. This song is a kids’ song which is picturised on kids playing the childhood roles of the four kids that Durga Khote raises as her own. The kids are shows singing this song while crossing a river in a boat. It is interesting to see that the girl does the hard work of rowing the boat for much of the picturisation while the boys just sing. It is towards the end that one kid(playing Dev Anand’s childhood character) takes the “patwaar” to do some symbolic paddling and he then raises the “patwaar” high displaying a flag of unity atop it.

The singers of this song are not known. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify these child voices.

P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Lyrics

kabhi ruke na aa aa
kabhi ruke na
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
chhoti si pyaari pyaari
kabhi ruke na aa aa
kabhi ruke na
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
chhoti si pyaari pyaari

ek hai naiya
ek hai naiya
musaafir hain chaar
ek do teen chaar
ek do teen chaar
chaaron ke haathon me ek patwaar
ek patwaar
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
ek hai manzil hamaari
ek hai manzil hamaari
chhoti si pyaari pyaari
chhoti si pyaari pyaari
kabhi ruke na aa aa
kabhi ruke na
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari

ye aage badhhti jayegi lehron se khelti
ye aage badhti jaayegi aandhi ko jhelti
ye aage badhti jaayegi lehron se khelti
ye aage badhti jaayegi aandhi ko jhelti
jo bhi aage aayega
hamse thokar khaayega
jo bhi aage aayega
hamse thokar khaayega
nikle hain hum jeetne
nikle hain hum jeetne
dekho ye duniya saari
dekho ye duniya saari
kabhi ruke na aa aa
kabhi ruke na
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari
naiya hamaari ye naiya hamaari

harijan kristaan hindu musalman
harijan kristan hindu musalman
sabka ek nishaan
sabka ek nishaan
sabka ek nishaan
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
hum ek hain
ek hamaara jhanda
kabhi jhuke na
kabhi jhuke na
ek hamaara jhanda
kabhi jhuke na
kabhi jhuke na

The voice sounds typically Zohrabai A. The song sounds quite familiar and I dare say popular. All other songs of the film are sung by her and by Ameerbai K and one by Manik Verma a very famous singer of Marathi songs.
