Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Kaisa jaadoo daala ma banarasi roomaal waala

When I started collecting cassettes in 1985, I was very crazy about purchasing of cassettes at regular intervals; I was always searching for songs of old films (especially of Rajesh Khanna films at that time).

It was my practice, beginning from 8th standard onwards that I would take up some part time job during my vacations which I would give up as classes would resume. I had taken up a part time job during the vacation period after class 12th as well, but unlike the previous years, I did not go back to my classes this time, rather I continued with this job since I was aware that I was going to fail in my exams.

So, I continued with this job and did not join regular studies. At that time I was getting a paltry sum as wages.

Looking at my love for music one of my Uncles had given me an old cassette recorder, so I started purchasing cassettes that were within my means at that time.

Earlier it used to be at least one or two cassettes of economy range at a time for me. Later on it became 3 to 4 cassettes on Salary days. Sometimes I would also purchasing blank cassettes of TDK and SONY (which were costly for me then) and I would get my favorite selected songs recorded in them.
I would also make it a point to buy cassettes on special occasions, viz my own birthday, birthdays of my Father, Mother and my younger brothers, days of national importance etc. Then I would put on my signature and date of purchase on the cover of the album. This used to give me immense pleasure and satisfaction.

***
I was always on search for songs that were in my vague memory from my growing up years.

Most of the albums, compilations released would generally contain songs easily available or songs that were more popular in their time.
Some albums in between would have one or two songs that were rare, not heard frequently, or were not easily available in other source.

***
Now what used to happen is that if I was having a particular album or compilation of Singer, Music Director, any particular Actor/Actress or others, and if it had some missing songs in it which I felt should have been included there and they were available in some other sets, I would grab these cassettes as if there would be ‘no tomorrow’. (My boss also had once pointed out this to me – ‘tum to is tarah cassette kharidte ho jaise kal market mein ye sab gaane milenge hi nahin). During this “filling up the missing songs” purchase, I would get 5 or 6 “new” songs that would enable me to have all songs of my previously purchased albums/ compilations.

Sometimes these new cassettes would contain only one stanza of the missing songs sought by me and then I would reluctantly look for yet another additional cassette containing this full song.

If an album previously bought by me would have a a song missing and another album of the same movie contained that missing song then I would go in for buying the same album twice, just for the satisfaction of getting the one song that was missing in my collection.

Building up my music collection in a systematic way gave me a lot of satisfaction and for that matter it still gives me the same satisfaction (now with CD/DVDs).

***
Simultaneously, I would also keep a list of songs missing from my collection and continuing to elude me. I had a special diary (still with me) for this purpose. Then in the sub-section I had this list of ‘songs that bring back memories’ (which I have already discussed in detail in another post).

In this list there were ‘two’ songs which, I do not know why, I always felt that I had heard them on radio in the morning time in the distant past and that too between 09:30 to 10:00 timing.
One song was ‘joode mein gajra mat baandho’ and the other was ‘kaisa jaadu daala ’…

***
For many years I failed to get any audio album containing these songs. After getting into the ‘internet’ age, the habit of getting new audio albums has also slowed down. Moreover I am not getting as much time to listen to the songs on cassette recorder /CD player as I used to get earlier. Nowadays, I listen to such songs (time permitting) on our blog or on YT.

The tale of my search for the song under discussion was very interesting.

I only remembered one line of the song correctly and that was ‘kaisa jaadu daala..’ the other words in the song viz. … mabala teeru dalwaala/teen taalwaala … roomalwala etc etc were just my imagination.

The tune of this song had become permanently embedded in my memory and that too for this mukhda only.

Whenever I searched for it, my search would invariably leads me to the song ‘kaisa jaadu daala re (from the new film ‘Khakee’). Needless to say, I was not even aware of the name of the film either. I did not even know at that time (that I later found out) that it was a ‘duet’. I remembered it (incorrectly) as a solo by Rafi Saab.

When my repeated searches ended in failures, I was very frustrated and began to think that this must be non-filmy song or any other musical creation.

But, on one lucky day, my ‘wild guess searching’ was finally fruitful and I managed to discover this song on YT.

So, here is this special song from the 1968 Film called “Watan Se Door”. It is sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle. It is composed by Lala Sattar. Lyrics are by Farooq Kaiser.

The song is picturised on Maruti and (?), I could not recognize the heroine in this song.
I would request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the star cast of the movie and on the stars involved in this song.

***

So, I finally managed to re discover this song recently that I had last heard during my childhood and which formed part of my childhood memories. Being reunited with this song after more than four decades was a frustrating, but ultimately successful exercise.

Music lovers like me had to go through lot of searching and running around to get the rare songs, forgotten songs, multiple versions, parts of songs, and other such “missing” songs in the past. Nowadays one can be certain that most such songs nowadays are available at the clicks of a few keys and are available right there on ‘atulsongaday.me’ … the magical blog of our lovely memories and musical journey so far!!!

So, today, when we are celebrating the birthday of this ‘special’ blog, I think it is the right time to share and re-live our individual ‘nostalgia’ and journey with the Hindi film songs in our life and overall getting a ‘new life’ after coming into contact with this fabulous blog …

Happy Birthday ‘atulsongaday’ and thanks for being a part of our lives !!!

Let us now enjoy this wonderful foot tapping ‘Hyderabadi- Hindi’ Song on this occasion!

Kaisa jaadoo daalaa

Odh ko dushaala
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Kaisa jaadoo daalaa
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala
O Jaan tujhpe dega
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Charminaar ke logaan mujhe
Charminaar ke
Charminaar ke logaan mujhe
Kehte madhubala
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala
Waah
Bibi aisa bol nako

Peechhe khadi khaala
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Haaye haaye

Kar ko baataan pyaar ke ji
Kya samajh ko taala
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Majnu bane maati(?) mile
Majnu bane ae
Haay haay
Majnu bane maati(?) mile
Karko aaye ujaala
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala
O Jaan tujhpe dega
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Kaisa jaadoo daalaa
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala
hoy Jaan tujhpe dega
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Kaisa jaadoo daalaa
Ma banaarsi roomaal waala

Just a guess is she Meenakshi(with Maruthi), ??? I may be wrong…….

Congrats Avinashji for finding ur song for our listening pleasure

Such a sweet cute song….. Got a chance to play it only today….the song sounds vaguely familiar👏👏👏👏👏

No doubt the song seems inspired from “Ham kaale hain to kya hua dilwaale hain”, but this song is wonderful on its own merit.
