Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Aankhen’ was released in 1950.  Most people remember it for being the debut film of music director Madan Mohan.  Amongst all the wonderful songs that caught the attention of the listeners, there is this lovely melody in the voice of Meena Kapoor, that really steals away your heart – “Mori Atariya Pe Kaaga Bole, Mora Jiya Doley, Koi Aa Rahaa Hai”.  For me, it is this one song that makes this film and its music memorable.  This is one of the two songs that Bharat Vyas wrote for this film.

Remembering Bharat Vyas on the anniversary of his passing away (5th July).

By the time this song reached the listeners in 1950, Bharat ji had already clocked seven years in the industry, having made his debut in 1943 with the film ‘Duhaai’.  Born in 1918, he was twenty five years old on this debut. The years may sound young, but the young Bharat already had a world of literary experience behind him.  Originally from Churu in Rajasthan, there is a significant influence of the Rajasthani dialects in his writings, as well as the traditions of valor and sacrifice find a prominent place.  As a school going child, he had interest in stage dramas and acting, and used to participate in the local Ramlila celebrations.  He started writing poetry at a very young age. While still a teenager, he composed the famous poem “Kesariya Pagdi Bani Rahe”, which went on to find a place of honor as a song in the film ‘Jai Chittor’ of 1961.

After completing his Matric from Churu, the young Bharat came to Calcutta to pursue his studies for B.Com.  Of course his creativity kept pace with him. He started participating in the local ‘Kavi Sammelans’, and started to write songs for music companies.  His song “Aao Veero Hilmil Gaayen Vande Maatram” captured the then current emotions in the country, and became very popular.  The time was late 1930s.  The stage theatre scene in Calcutta was very active.  Inspired by the environment, he wrote a Rajasthani stage play ‘Ramu Chananaa’, complete with dialogues and songs, in a single night sitting.  More plays followed, and the young creator became a popular writer figure on the Calcutta literary scene.  In case you wonder how do Rajasthani/ Marwaari language dramas fit into the Calcutta milieu, one must remember that Calcutta has probably the largest population of Marwaaris and other migrant families from Rajasthan.

The second world war happened.  The threat of Japanese invasion from the east made a number of artists and other people move out of Calcutta.  The young Bharat came to Bombay in the early 1940s, and immediately plunged into the literary activities in the city.  Once again, he became a regular and a popular participant at the local Kavi Sammelans.  His songs and poetry started finding place in the programs of All India Radio.  With so much literary involvement, it was but natural for him to get connected with the film industry.  And so he made his film debut in 1943.  Film producers like V Shantaram, Bimal Roy and Vijay Bhatt were influenced by his poetry, and he became a regular songwriter for their films.  It is going to be redundant to start listing his creations from 1940s and 1950s.  But I will surely mention that classic song from the 1957 film ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ that has gone beyond the epithets of ‘iconic’ and ‘timeless’ – “Ae Maalik Tere Bande Hum” has found its way into the cultural DNA of this land.  I am pleasantly surprised and moved to find this song listed on a website that celebrates Urdu poetry, calling it out as one of the best spiritual creations in the Urdu language.  For a writer whose roots are in the Rajasthani dialect, and whose writings are known for their chaste Hindi content, this recognition exemplifies the breadth and depth of his writings.

A brief sampling of the films which are embellished with his songs – ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Toofaan Aur Diya” (1956), ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ (1957), ‘Fashion’ (1957), ‘Janam Janam Ke Pher’ (1957), ‘Suvarna Sundari’ (1958), ‘Samrat Chandragupt’ (1958), ‘Rani Roopmati’ (1959), ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’ (1959), ‘Navrang’ (1959), ‘Bedard Zamaana Kya Jaane’ (1960), ‘Kavi Kalidas’ (1960), ‘Veer Durgadas’ (1960), ‘Angulimaal’ (1960), ‘Chandramukhi’ (1960), ‘Saaranga’ (1960), ‘Jai Chittor’ (1961), ‘Piya Milan Ki Aas’ (1961), ‘Stree’ (1961), ‘Pyar Ki Pyas’ (1961), ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan’ (1963), ‘Sati Savitri’ (1964), ‘Sant Gyaneshwar’ (1964), ‘Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti’ (1967).  As I said, a brief sampling only. The mention of each film name immediately brings to mind the songs these films are famous for.  That is the writing prowess of this exemplary poet.

He passed away in 1982, after a brief illness.

This song is such a wonderful memory from the radio listening days.  The tickler for this post was sent in by dear Prakash ji, who has also provided the lyrics.  The film is ‘Saaranga’.  The music is by Sardar Malik and the singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar accompanied with chorus.  On screen, this song is presented as a folk dance, which is led by Jaishree Gadkar.  We can also see Sudesh Kumar in the video clip.  The words are exquisite.  Few poets have been able to write film songs that are adorned with the ‘alankaars’ in chaste Hindi.

chhote se ghooghat ke patt mein
ek roop kaa deep jalaaye

In fact the entire song is such an attractive composition in words, like a piece of alluring jewelry crafted by a master jeweler. What more to say; other than just to listen to this charming and earthy song in the folk genre, so beautifully crafted. Enjoy.

1. Many people may be aware that Bharat Vyas’s younger brother BM Vyas was one of the top actors of mythological films of 50s.
2. Also, Sardar Malik was a very good Music Director, and had created many melodious songs for mostly ‘B’ grade films. His son, however is earned fame and is today’s well-known Music Director Anu Malik.

Nitin ji,

I really fail to understand what purpose do you achieve by giving incomplete information on this Blog ?

Bharat Vyas,starting with Duhai-43 till Krishna Krishna-1986,has written songs for a total of 189 Hindi released films. This information is from his Biography,”Tujhe mere geet bulate hain”written by shri Sanjiv Tanwar recently.

Incomplete information on this Blog conveys wrong impression about the artistes and it also erodes the Blog’s credibility.

May I request you to give either complete details,if required at all, or desist from doing so.

Such misleading information also puts other contributors’ credibility at stake unnecessarily.

I hope you will heed to my request.

He directed Rangeela Rajasthan a Rajasthani film starring a young Bharat Bhushan.
At the time of his death, he was involved in a project of presenting the Ramayana in poetic form, to be put to music by Shyam Sagar. He was also directing two Rajasthani films.

Automatically, this comes to mind:

Naghme juda juda hain magar saaz ek hai.”
Actually, both our most respected seniors and stalwarts have only one aim: To give the most detailed (and accurate) information and educate/enlighten the other less knowledgable HFM lovers like us.

Thank you very much, Sudhir ji for an excellent post, as usual.
Bharat Vyas and S.N. Tripathi combined to give us scores of sweet and beautifully worded melodies, especially in films based on Hindu mythology.
Great work of very high literary value.
