‘क’
“कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे”

We now move to the consonants, having completed the list of basic vowels. So far, the only alphabet missing is the letter ‘ ई’.

This here is a wonderful nazm from the 1973 film ‘Mere Ghareeb Nnawaaz’. A very soft expression of first love, which has been sung so softly by Rafi Sb.  I remember this nazm was quite popular in its time and was frequently heard on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Shakeel Pictures, Bombay and is directed by G Ishwar. The cast of actors includes Naazneen, Satish Arora, Veena, Nazir Husain, Agha, Mukri, Anwar Ali, CS Dubey, Mirza Musharraf, Prince Shakeel, Geeta Kaushal, Mumtaz Begum etc. with special guest appearances by Bharat Bhushan, Jagdeep and Jalal Agha. The film also had debut appearances by Renuka, Salma, Shakir Javeri and Kaajpuri.

The film has nine songs, all written by Mehboob Sarvar. Music direction is by Kamal Rajasthani. The film is a social drama, that revolves around the beneficence and the glories of Moinudin Chisti, the Khwaja of Ajmer. Khwaja Moinudin Chisti is as deeply revered Sufi saint, who is worshipped by disciples across all of the Indian subcontinent. I reproduce below a brief excrtp adapted from Wikipedia and other online sources.

Moinuddin Chishti (1141 – 1236) also known as Gharīb Nawāz (Benefactor of the Poor), was an imam, Islamic scholar and philosopher from South Asia. Chishti introduced and established the Chishti Order of Sufism in the Indian subcontinent. The initial spiritual chain or silsila of the Chishti order in India, comprising Chishti, Qutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki, Fariduddin Ganjshakar and Nizamuddin Auliya—each successive person being the disciple of the previous—includes the great Sufi saints of Indian history. Various Mughal emperors were followers of Chishti.

Moinuddin Chishti is said to have been born in 536 AH/1141 CE in Chisht in a city between Afghanistan and Iran and is thought to be a “sayyid”, a direct descendant of Muhammad. His parents died when he was fifteen years old. He inherited a windmill and an orchard from his father. During his childhood, Chishti was different from other children and kept himself busy in prayer and meditation. He later disposed of his property and other belongings and distributed the money to the poor. He renounced the world and left for Bukhara in search of knowledge and higher education.

Chishti visited the seminaries of Samarkand and Bukhara and acquired religious learning from scholars. He visited centers of Muslim culture and acquainted himself with important trends in Muslim religious life. He became a disciple of the Chishti saint Usman Harooni. They travelled the Middle East together, including visits to Mecca and Medina.

Chishti turned towards India, reputedly after a dream in which Muhammad blessed him to do so. After a brief stay in Lahore, he reached Ajmer along with Mu’izz al-Din Muhammad, and settled down. In Ajmer, he attracted a substantial following, gaining the respect of the residents of the city. Chishti promoted understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims.

The dargah of Chishti, known as Ajmer Sharif Dargah or Ajmer Sharif, is an international waqf, an Islamic mortmain managed by the “Dargah Khwaja Saheb Act, 1955” of the government of India. The Dargah Committee, appointed by the Government, manages donations, takes care of the maintenance of the outer area of shrine, and runs charitable institutions like dispensaries and guest houses for the devotees, but does not take care of the main shrine (Astana e Alia) which is under the custody of Khadims.

There are many films made on the subcontinent that have stories built around the worship of Khwaja, and the miracles that are still attributed to him. Many films have songs that honor his name and his shrine. The period film ‘Jodha Akbar’ (2008) has a famous one “Khwaaja Mere Khwaaja”.

Of the nine songs of this film, five are religious renditions. There is one wonderful song sung by Anwar – “Kasmen Hum Apni Jaan Ki Khaaye Chale Gaye”, which is already showcased here.  Today I present this delicate expression of love, rendered by Rafi Sb. I do not recognize the actors on screen and do not want to take risks with erroneous identifications.  I request other readers and friends to kindly help with the identifications. The actor name – Satish Arora; is he anyway related to Vijay Arora. If he is the gentleman on screen, then the face seems familiar.

Listen to this delicious ‘nazm’. And the voice of Rafi Sb.

Lyrics

hmmmmmmmm
hmm hmmmmm
hmmmmmmm mmmm mmmm
hmmmmmmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmmmm hmmmmm

kal meri tarah
mujhko salaam
aap karenge
kal meri tarah mujhko salaam aap karenge
khamosh rahunga main
kalaam aap karenge
kal meri tarah mujhko salaam aap karenge

dikhla ke jhalak hosh talak
chheen liya hai
saaqi ne mujhe mai ke evaz
pyaas diya hai
maikhaane mein aankhon ke jise
band kiya hai
khud pesh kisi din wo hi jaam
aap karenge
khamosh rahunga main
kalaam aap karenge
kal meri tarah mujhko salaam aap karenge

raaten na rahi meri na
ab din rahe mere
raaten na rahi meri na
ab din rahe mere
rehte hain sadaa aap
khyalaat ko ghere
rukhsaar pe bikhra ke ye
zulfon ke andhere
zulfon ke andhere
kab tak ke yun hi
subho ko shaam
aap karenge
khamosh rahunga main
kalaam aap karenge
kal meri tarah mujhko salaam aap karenge

nazren hain kisi ki yahin
aur dil bhi yahin hai
kaise kahoon chaahat ka asar
un pe nahin hai
lag jaayegi kuchh der magar
mujhko yakeen hai
mujhko yakee…een hai
lag jaayegi kuchh der magar
mujhko yakeen hai
ek roz mere ghar mein
kayaam aap karenge
khamosh rahunga main
kalaam aap karenge
kal meri tarah mujhko salaam aap karenge

salaam aap karenge

salaam aap karenge

हम्ममममममममम
हम्म हम्मममम
हम्ममममममममम मम्म मम्मममम
हम्मममममम
हम्मम हम्मम हम्मम हम्मममममम हम्मममम

कल मेरी तरह
मुझको सलाम
आप करेंगे
कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे
खामोश रहूँगा में
कलाम आप करेंगे
कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे

दिखला के झलक होश तलक
छीन लिया है
साक़ी ने मुझे मय के एवज़
प्यास दिया है
मयखाने में आँखों की जिसे बंद किया है
खुद पेश किसी दिन वही जाम
आप करेंगे
खामोश रहूँगा में
कलाम आप करेंगे
कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे

रातें ना रहीं मेरी ना
अब दिन रहे मेरे
रातें ना रहीं मेरी ना
अब दिन रहे मेरे
रहते हैं सदा आप
ख़्यालात को घेरे
रुखसार पे बिखरा के ये
ज़ुल्फों के अंधेरे
ज़ुल्फों के अंधेरे
कब तक के यूंही
सुबहो को शाम
आप करेंगे
खामोश रहूँगा में
कलाम आप करेंगे
कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे

नज़रें हैं किसी की यहीं
और दिल भी यहीं है
कैसे कहूँ चाहत का असर
उन पे नहीं है
लग जाएगी कुछ देर मगर
मुझको यकीं है
मुझको यकीं॰॰॰ है
लग जाएगी कुछ देर मगर
मुझको यकीं है
इक रोज़ मेरे घर में क़याम
आप करेंगे
खामोश रहूँगा में
कलाम आप करेंगे
कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे

सलाम आप करेंगे

सलाम आप करेंगे

Kapur ji

One very interesting thing about the song.

The picturisation is a college annual function, in which the hero and the side hero sing turn by turn, to win the admiration of their respective ladies/students.

The Second prize in the function goes to the Anwar number ( I think his debut song, mind you this was 1973) and the first prize naturally goes to Rafi Sahab number.

However, the Anwar number ” Kasme hum apni jaan ki khaye chale gaye” became more popular, so much so that many people think it was Rafi Sahab himself.

Alas Anwar could never fully establish himself fully, presumably as he was great only in a few generes

But his song is equally good

Regards

Swaminathan

Sudhir Ji,
I have seen the film in the Doordarshan era, and was just going to write the same thing which Swaminathan Ji has narrated in his comments. For the Anwar song, I remember having won several bets with my friends, about the song having not sung by Rafi.
And yes, the Anwar song, Kasmein hum apni jaan ki is also very good

I can identify actress Nazneen and Anwar Ali(Brother of Memood)in the audience.

Anwar was advised by is so-called friends to undertake lucrative foreign tours which he did many times. In the process the MDs could not use him as frequently. In films if it is out of sight; it is out of mind. He would have given the so-called Rafi mimics run for their money.

Kamal Rajasthani
Idd Ka Salaam (1976)
Only one movie to show. He was much more prolific in NFS.
Mehboob Sarvar
Mere Sartaz (1975)

Nitin ji

Yes Kamal Rajasthani was more prolific in NFS

However there are two unreleased films “Phir Bahar Aaye” and Raaste Mein Pada Patthar”. Both had Rafi Sahab numbers

Swaminathanji,
Thanks for the additional info.
