Tadbeer Ka Ho Teer Aur Taqdeer Nishaana

She was 74 years when she passed away in 2004. And by then, she had spent the last four decades of her life in a self imposed seclusion. The separation from the public domain was so complete that many took her to have already departed from this world. When the tidings of her demise came, many were surprised.

Remembering Suraiya on the day of her passing away (31st January).

A closed and limited life, and a curtailed singing career – that is the essence of her life story. She was only 34 years when she imposed a retirement upon herself. And in the active years prior to that, she steadfastly declined to sing playback to other actresses. In an era that decidedly has been the golden period in the history of Hindi film music, but it was also past the singer-actor era of the likes of Saigal Sb and Kanan Devi.  The decade of 1950s also witnessed the near valiant stands taken by two other stalwart singer-actor crusaders, namely Mukesh and Talat, and saw them vanquished as such. Or maybe it was the lost love of her life that dared her to embark on this doomed expedition.

Majority of her songs already showcased here. There are maybe less than ten songs that are known, but yet to find their place in the public domain.  Today, I bring online a rare gem from 1955. The film is ‘Inaam’. The music is by SN Tripathi and the words are from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

Listening to this song gives a goosebumpy feeling of déjà-vu. Such is the striking resemblance of the intent, the words, and even to some extent, the melody and the rendition. The ‘tadbeer’ and the ‘taqdeer’ are the giveaways, as I am sure the readers would immediately identify the iconic song that came four years earlier than this one, and served to be its pre-cursor.

But hey, we are getting on a rarely heard song of Suraiya, which is the reward in as of itself. It may be left to wonder what would have passed through the minds of the team that created this song, when they were creating it. And wonder and speculate we may, however it would be most nearly be just speculations at this juncture.

Let us listen and savor nonetheless, this heretofore obscure melody. And remember the great artist and her artistry – Suraiya.

Song – Tadbeer Ka Ho Teer Aur Taqdeer Nishaana (Inaam) (1955) Singer – Suraiya, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – SN Tripathi

Lyrics

tadbeer ka ho teer
aur taqdeer nishaana
tadbeer ka ho teer
aur taqdeer nishaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana

o ooo ooo
ooo oo oo oo

soye hain tere bhaag to thokar se jaga le
tu chaahe to akaash bhi kadmon par gira le
kadmon par gira le
mashhoor hoga door tak jab tera fasaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana
tadbeer ka ho teer
aur taqdeer nishaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana

o ooo ooo
ooo oo oo oo

jeetega tu duniya mein gar kismet se ladega
peechhe chalega ye jahaan tu aage badhega
tu aage badhega
aa dekh le tadbeer ki shamsheer chalaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana
tadbeer ka ho teer
aur taqdeer nishaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana

o ooo ooo
ooo oo oo oo

naiyyaa teri majdhaar ki maujon mein khudi ho
aise mein bhi bas meethi tere lab pe hansi ho
tere lab pe hansi ho
fariyaad na karna kabhi aansoo na bahaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana
tadbeer ka ho teer
aur taqdeer nishaana
phir dekhna kadmon pe jhukega ye zamaana
jhukega ye zamaana

Hindi Script Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

तदबीर का हो तीर
और तक़दीर निशाना
तदबीर का हो तीर
और तक़दीर निशाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना

ओ ओsss ओss
ओsss ओs ओs ओs

सोये हैं तेरे भाग तो ठोकर से जगा दे
तू चाहे तो आकाश को कदमों पे गिरा दे
कदमों पे गिरा दे
मशहूर होगा दूर तक जब तेरा निशाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना
तदबीर का हो तीर
और तक़दीर निशाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना

ओ ओsss ओss
ओsss ओs ओs ओs

जीतेगा तू दुनिया में गर क़िस्मत से लड़ेगा
पीछे चलेगा ये जहां तू आगे बढ़ेगा
तू आगे बढ़ेगा
आ देख ले तदबीर की शमशीर चलाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना
तदबीर का हो तीर
और तक़दीर निशाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना

ओ ओsss ओss
ओsss ओs ओs ओs

नैय्या तेरी मझधार की मौजों में खुदी हो
ऐसे में भी बस मीठी तेरे लब पे हंसी हो
तेरे लब पे हंसी हो
फरियाद ना करना कभी आँसू न बहाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना
तदबीर का हो तीर
और तक़दीर निशाना
फिर देखना कदमों पे झुकेगा ये ज़माना
झुकेगा ये ज़माना

The song that is available on YT is Suraiyya solo version and it is already covered in the blog in 2013 itself. It is the Nirmala Devi Suraiyya duet version that is unavailable.

Here is the post in the blog for the Suraiyya version.

Sudhirji,
Thanks for ferreting out the gem. The 8 songs should only be posted on her birth and death anniversaries one by one; so that is within 4 years. So we have good time to search and upload.
