Today (25 october 2015) is the 35th death anniversary of Sahir Ludhianvi (8 march 1921- 25 october 1980).

Sahir Ludhianvi made his debut as a lyricist in Hindi movies with “Aazaadi Ki Raah Par”(1948). This movie was directed by Lalit Mehta for Hindustan Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Vanmala, Jairaj, Jagdeesh Sethi, Sunalini Devi, Jawahar Kaul, Narmada Shankar, Hamid Akhtar, Jamshedji, Avtar Singh, Ramniklal Dave etc in it.

There were six songs in this movie. Four out of these songs were penned by debutant lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi.

The very first song that Sahir Ludhianvi wrote in this Hindi film career was this song under discussion. This song was sung by Bahadur S Nanji and chorus. Music was composed by G D Kapoor.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi

Ye ujdi ujdi bastiyaan
Ye loot ki nishaaniyaan
Ye ujdi ujdi bastiyaan
Ye loot ki nishaaniyaan

Ye ajnabi
Ye ajnabi ke zulm ki kahaaniyaan
Ye ajnabi
Ye ajnabi ke zulm ki kahaaniyaan

Ab in dukhon ke bhaar se ae ae
Ae ae
Ab in dukhon ke bhaar se
Nikal rahi hai zindagi

Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi

Zameen pe sarsaraahatein
Aen
Falak pe pharpharaahatein
Aen
Zameen pe sarsaraahatein
Falak pe pharpharaahatein

Fizaan mein goonjati hai ek
Naye jahaan ki aahatein
Fizaan mein goonjti hai ek
Naye jahaan ki aahatein

Machal rahi hai zindagi
Sanwar rahi hai zindagi
Sanwar rahi hai zindagi
Machal rahi hai zindagi

Sanwar rahi hai zindagi
Machal rahi hai zindagi
Machal rahi hai zindagi
Sanwar rahi hai zindagi

Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi
Badal rahi hai zindagi ee ee

ये उजड़ी उजड़ी बस्तियां,
ये लूट की निशानियाँ,
ये उजड़ी उजड़ी बस्तियां,
ये लूट की निशानियाँ,

ये अजनबी,
ये अजनबी के ज़ुल्म की कहानियाँ,
ये अजनबी,
ये अजनबी के ज़ुल्म की कहानियाँ,

अब इन दुखों के भार से ए ए
ए ए
अब इन दुखों के भार से
निकल रही है जिंदगी,

बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी

ज़मीन पे सरसराहटें,
फलक पे थरथराहटें
ज़मीन पे सरसराहटें,
फलक पे थरथराहटें

फिजां में गूँजतीं है एक
नए जहां की आहटें
फिजां में गूँजतीं है एक
नए जहां की आहटें

मचल रही है जिंदगी,
संवर रही है जिंदगी
संवर रही है जिंदगी,

संवर रही है जिंदगी,
मचल रही है जिंदगी
मचल रही है जिंदगी,
संवर रही है जिंदगी

बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी
बदल रही है जिंदगी ई ई

I met Bahadur Nanji, a Parsi singer, Arranger, Musician (Age 94+) of the yester-years at our ‘Sargam’s’ program, where he used to come, whenever his health permitted, and whenever he was picked and dropped from his home by our regular member Tarachand Sawla. He was a regular Arranger for many MDs (Assistant MD to Roshan in ‘Malhar’). He was an instrumentalist for many film songs. (He played Harmonium for the song ‘Chalat Musafir Moh Liya Re Pinjare Wali Muniya’ from film ‘Teesari Kasam’). While talking to him I came to know that it was he singing a duet with Mubarak Begam, from the 1950 film ‘Basera’ -‘Dekhoji Baat Suno’, which I had in my ‘Khajana’, On our next meet, he was delighted when I gave him that song and other ‘Basera’ songs on an audio cassette.

What a rare treat!
The first song written by the great Sahir Ludhianvi, sui generis.
Thanks a lot, Atul ji, and, also to Shah saheb & Upadhyaya saheb.
I think this song was like the other gem by Khan Mastana in “Shaheed”.
Regards,
Avadh Lal
