“Chaand” songs are always a delight to listen to. In my view, the first “Chaand” song was perhaps the title song of “Chaand”(1944) which I discovered some four years ago. I had discussed this song in the blog at that time.

That song had elicited some heartwarming comments from readers who were then new to the blog. nahm commented

How u must be feeling? when u dive in the sea and come with a few more precious gems n jewels daily. It is a sea full of fogotten/not known (by us) gems.

I feel as if we r so rich with a sea full of jewels at our disposal, bring one or two up, enjoy for a while the feel of the song and put it back in the sea.

And this is what Sudhir ji, another newcomer to the blog had exclaimed:

Atul ji,
A very dear salute to you from the bottom of my heart. 🙂
Aap kahaan kahaan se ye nagme aur ye geet dhoond ke laa rahe hain. Aisa lagta hai ki ek koyle ki khadaan mein se chun chun ke heere baant rahe hain. Kya kamaal ki khoj hai.
Not for only this song, but so many others that are flowing like a melodious waterfall on this blog. And of course, what a gem of song this one is. I am hearing it for the first time, but (as Raja ji would say) it is love at first hear.
Aap ki mehnaton pe hum dil o jaan se qurbaan :).

Indeed, there are rare songs that one can come across when one dives deep in the musical ocean of HFM. Then there are some gems that are lying buried so deep that they cannot be located just by diving and stumbling upon them. They can be located only when their co ordinates are known (in the form of their movie/ song title etc) and even then one needs to search hard. After you locate them, they are in such poor shape that you may tend to throw them away as junk unless you know better. You need to clean it up and try to bring it to its true shape before it becomes presentable. And once the song becomes presentable, then listening to the song is a divine experience and all the hard work involved in searching for it becomes worthwhile.

Here is another “Chaand” song from 1944. This song is far more obscure than the above mentioned title song of “Chaand”(1944). This song is from “Man Ki Jeet”(1944). The song is sung by Sitara Kanpuri. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist and he has come up with superb lyrics. This must be one of the most original lyrics for a “chaand” song that I have come across.

Music is composed by S K Pal.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie was directed by W Z Ahmad for Shalimar Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Neena, Shyam, Prakash, Tiwari, Rajkumari Shukla, Miss Gulab, Geeta, Mumtaz, Asha, Shanta Thakkar, Nazeer Bedi, Saroj Borkar, Ramavtar, Kathana, Bismillah, Kailash, Khalil, Gulab, Sudha Apte, Anil etc in it.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Noting down the lyrics of this song was a challenging, but fruitful exercise. I have not been able to get the lyrics to my satisfaction in a few places. I request our readers with keener ears to suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable.


Song-Ae chaand na itraana (Man Ki Jeet)(1944) Singer-Sitara Kanpuri, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-S K Pal

Lyrics

ae chaand
ae chaand
na itraana
ae chaand
na itraana
aate hain mere sajan
aate hain mere sajan
sajan
aate hain mere sajan
kadam mein bichh jaana
ae chaand na itraana

o o o o
o o o o
o o o o
o o
tera gora badan
mere gore sajan
saajan se na baazi lagaana
?? sundar hai kaun
mera preetam ya tu
hai hamko yehi aajmaana
ae chaand
na itraana

sun apni kahaani meri jabaani
apni kahaani meri jabaani
isko na tum bhool jaana aa
jab ishwar ne donon ka karne wazan
jab ishwar ne dono ka karne wazan
do paldon mein donon ko daala
ek palde mein tu
dooje mein sajan
ek palde mein tu
dooje mein sajan
taraazu ko jyoon hi uthhaaya
taraazu ko jyoon hi uthhaaya
jo halka thha wo uthh gaya ooper
jo halka thha wo uthh gaya ooper
jo bhaari thha wo neeche aaya
haan
jo bhaari thha wo neeche aaya
wo mera hai chaand
sundar hai chaand
wo mera hai chaand
?? sundar hai chaand
tu man hi mein na phool jaana
ae chaand
na itraana
aate hain mere sajan
aate hain mere sajan
sajan
aate hain mere sajan
kadam mein bichh jaana
ae chaand na itraana

kaun sundar hai
jab ishwar ne donon ka karle wazan

I still regret not having seen this film when it was in the cinemas in Bombay in 1973. I have confirmed that it is also available in the Pune Film Institute Archives- another sad case of frustrations at not being able to go there to see it. My mother told me it was picturised on Neena as she,s waiting for Shyam to come home. The film was a very bold one for its time for several reasons- one was maybe it was the first scene of a rape being shown although , along with the times, it was depicted very modestly showing Neena running and the villain Prakash behind her. The rape was symbolized by her dupatta flying in the sky and a star falling from the sky! The other issue of this film was the song by Zohrabai “More mjubna ka dekho ubhar” literally meaning see my breast heaving. It was almost deleted from the film by Morarji Desai at that time. Another part of this bold film was the fact that Shyam acknowledges Neena as his wife even though she had been raped and admits it.
