Today (17 july 2015) is the 96th birth anniversary of Snehal Bhatkar (17 july 1919-29 may 2007). His actual name was Vasudev Gangaram Bhatkar but he composed music under various names viz. Vasudev, B.Vasudev, Snehal and V.G.Bhatkar and finally settled for the name of Snehal Bhatkar, where the name Snehal was derived from Snehlata, the name of his daughter ! He used these pseudo names because he was an employee of HMV and his contract with HMV prohibited him from working outside HMV.

His debut movie was “Rukmini Swayamwar”(1946) where he had collaborated with Sudhir Phadke under the name of Vasudev-Sudhir. It was Kidar Sharma who gave Snehal Bhatkar his first break as an independent music director with ‘Neelkamal”(1947) where he composed music under the name of B Vasudev. Then he worked under the name of Snehal in “Suhaagraat”(1948) and “Thhes”(1949) and as V G Bhatkar in “Sant Tukaram” (1948), “Sati Ahilya” (1949) and “Pagle” (1950).

In 1949, he resigned from HMV and became free to work under his actual name but he preferred to use the name Shehal Bhatkar instead and he is known among music lovers by this name.

Though he is known mainly as a music director, he has sung a few songs as well.

On the occasion of Snehal Bhatkar’s birth anniversary, here is a song from “Rangeela Rajasthan”(1949). Snehal Bhatkar appears in this song not as a music director but as a singer ! He sings this song alongwith Rajkumari. Bharat Vyas, who was the produce and director of this movie (under his Shalimar Pictures, Poona banner), wrote the lyrics and even composed a few songs in this movie !

This song is penned and composed by Bharat Vyas.

The movie had Bharat Bhushan, Geeta Bose, Saroj Borkar, Vimal Karnataki, Pitu, Shyama, Uma Dutt, prem, Chandrashekhar, Noorjahan, Bismillah, Sarojini, Bazid Khan, Barjer, Ganpat Panchal, shakuntala, Neelam, Pt Ramadhar, B S Kalla etc in it.

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

The lyrics contains Rajasthani words and there are gaps/errors in noting down the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections wherever applicable.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Peepal ki oat chandarmaa chamke taaron
chhaayi raat
taaron chhaayi raat

Bhoori bhoori chaandni
Chama cham chamki
Sun morey man ki baat
Sun morey man ki baat

Do naina morey
Bhar bhar aawe
Bairi kab howe parbhaat
Kab howe parbhaat

In nainan ko tu samjhaa de
Baalaapan ki preet bhulaa de
O o o o
ho o o o

o o o o
O o o o
ho o o o
Bichhadan to ab hoke rahega
Milna hari ke haath
Milna hari ke haath

Saari nagri sukh se sowe
Mora jiyara ruk ruk rowe
Main jaagoon re aadhi raat
Jaagoon re aadhi raat

O o o
o o o
O o o o o o
O o o o o o

Ambua daal kaali koyaliya boley
Mora jiya doley doley
Mora jiya doley doley ae ae
Mera jiya doley doley ae ae

Duniya aa aa bedardi ee
Duniya aa aa bedardi
More jeewan ki jyot se
Chhoot rahaa mora saath
Chhoot rahaa mora saath
