Two important birthdays coming together today – 8th September. One is music director S Mohinder and the second is Asha Bhonsle. These two have created a number of songs together. Some memorable, and others, like this one, need to be rediscovered for their sheer beauty and simplicity of pleasure. During our visit to Bombay last month, Bakshi ji and I had the good fortune to spend a whole afternoon with S Mohinder ji.  A session that lasted almost four hours – it was a wonderful trip down the memory lane, for him, as well as for us.  That meeting itself is a detailed writeup that is waiting in the drafts list.  For this occasion, I am quoting two episodes where S Mohinder ji remembered Asha ji very fondly.

S Mohinder ji is living in the US these days. He occasionally visits India, and stays in Lokhandwala area in Bombay, with his daughter and her family.  On one of his previous visits, he remembers Asha ji coming to visit him. She rang the doorbell, and as the door was opened for her, she entered singing the song “Phool Muskuraye Kyon, Chand Jagmagaye Kyon. . .” from the film ‘Sarfarosh’ (1964).  She was almost like prancing happily, like a young school girl.

Another episode that he recalled with emotion relates to the song “Mere Saahib, Mere Saahib” from the Punjabi film ‘Nanak Naam Jahaaz Hai’ (1969).  This song, a bhajan (shabad) from Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, was composed by him in raag Kalawati.  It was sometime after the film was released.  Asha ji called him at his residence.  It was 2 am in the morning.  She was calling from Sydney. She was in happy and elated emotions; saying that she had just complete a concert in Sydney. She had sung this ‘shabad’ – and the amount of applause and appreciation that she got from the audience was unprecedented in her experience.  Then she said one more thing, that was even more wonderful.  She said that the pleasure that she is getting telling him about this, is much more than the pleasure she experienced when she was hearing the applause on the stage.  And he became silent for a moment, apparently a lump in the throat, as he reminisced that episode in his mind.

Today’s song is one of those unfamiliar and forgotten songs – items of wonderful beauty and pleasure that are lurking in the shadows, waiting to be heard again.  An exquisite and simple creation in the semi classical mould, the song appears to be a dance song, as one can make out from the musical interludes – a jugal bandi of the string and percussion instruments, accompanied with the clinking sounds of ghungroos.  A wonderful listening experience, that seems too short as it comes to an end, and the mind wants to listen to more of it.

The words are from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Asha ji’s voice is accompanied with chorus singing.  Simple, and full of pleasure – the words and the voice tell of the pining in the heart, as the lady likens the lightning in the clouds with the smile of her beloved.  Enchanting, charming. Listen and enjoy.

kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki
yaad aaye hansi

kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki

main to kho gayi prem ki raahon mein
piya thaam le apni baahon mein
main to kho gayi prem ki raahon mein
piya thaam le apni baahon mein
piya thaam le apni baahon mein
main hosh mein ab nahin aawan ki
main hosh mein ab nahin aawan ki
yaad aaye hansi
yaad aaye hansi mohey saajan ki
ho saajan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki

kaahe ke kaliyon se liptun ghabraa kar
kaahe phoolon ko choomun sharma kar
kaahe ke kaliyon se liptun ghabraa kar
kaahe phoolon ko choomun sharma kar
kaahe phoolon ko choomun sharma kar
ye baat nahin batlaawan ki
ye baat nahin batlaawan ki
yaad aaye hansi
yaad aaye hansi mohey saajan ki
ho saajan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki
kyun chamke bijuriya saawan ki

क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की
याद आए हंसी
याद आए हंसी मोहे साजन की
हो साजन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की

मैं तो खो गई प्रेम की राहों में
पिया थाम ले अपनी बाहों में
मैं तो खो गई प्रेम की राहों में
पिया थाम ले अपनी बाहों में
पिया थाम ले अपनी बाहों में
मैं होश मैं अब नहीं आवन की
मैं होश मैं अब नहीं आवन की
याद आए हंसी
याद आए हंसी मोहे साजन की
हो साजन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की

काहे कलियों से लिपटूँ घबरा कर
काहे फूलों को चूमूँ शर्मा कर
काहे कलियों से लिपटूँ घबरा कर
काहे फूलों को चूमूँ शर्मा कर
काहे फूलों को चूमूँ शर्मा कर
ये बात नहीं बतलावन की
ये बात नहीं बतलावन की
याद आए हंसी
याद आए हंसी मोहे साजन की
हो साजन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की
क्यों चमके बिजुरिया सावन की

Ashaji,
You have sung more songs than any singer in the world >11,000+ which is slightly less than double the songs sung by Lata.
So you have put in more efforts in recording the songs. We can only imagine the number of rehearsals and retakes and the effort and time involved; further considering the family to be taken care of and the hotel business in Dubai and UK (Asha’s Restaurants Pvt Ltd.)
tum jiyo hazaro saal
saal ke din hon
pachas hazar
