Mukesh and his Composers – 11
————————————-
Remembering Ravindra Jain on his birth anniversary today 28th February. Last year on 9th October he passed away from multiple organ failure in a Mumbai hospital at the age of 71. So this will his first birth anniversary without his physical presence in this world.

Born blind, Ravindra Jain has been one of the leading examples and a role model for visually challenged people. In fact he is a huge inspiration to the whole of mankind for what one can achieve in life, disabilities notwithstanding. His accomplishments in life are too many to list.

Starting his career as a composer, lyricist and a singer in the early 70’s he went on to score hits for many a films in his career. In fact many of the films in which he composed and wrote lyrics are remembered to date only for their melodious songs and music. He was also instrumental in shaping the careers of many singers. Hemlata and Yesudas’s singing career can never be complete without an elaborate reference to Ravindra Jain. He also composed for several movies of other languages. Many devotional movies invariably bore the stamp of his compositions.

Associations with RK Films and Rajshri productions are too well known.
Apart from all of the above, his is too well known for giving music to numerous TV serials, notably Ramayan, Luv Kush, Shree Krishna, Alif Laila and a host of others.

Reiterating what I have written above that his accomplishments are too many to enlist, I would refer readers to his wiki-page wherein many details are mentioned including his association with many well known singers.

Continuing my series on Mukesh and his Composers after a long hiatus, I present here the songs sung by Mukesh under the composition of Ravindra Jain. There are 4 NF Bhajans and a few filmi songs. In this post we shall cover the four NF bhajans that Mukesh sang for him. Of course only one bhajan will be presented in this post, but here is the table of the short list of four.

S. No. Name of the Non Film Bhajan
1 Prabhu Ka Naam Japo Man mein.
2 Prabhu Main Aap Hi Aap Bhulaya
3 Bighadi Baat Banaa De Raam
4 Ram Ram Ram Ram , Ram Naam Rat Re

No, the above table is not devoid of more columns as all the NF bhajans are written as well as composed by Ravindra Jain himself. Surprisingly, none of them have featured on the blog. So it was a matter of abundance for me to choose and I go by the first in the list.
The bhajans of Mukesh in praise of Lord Ram are very well known. The total allegiance and ardor with which he sang them is very much evident. The above list was again confirmed to me by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for its completeness and I thank him for the same.
In the next post, I will try to cover the film songs that Mukesh sang for Ravindra Jain and also tire the readers with the reasons for the long break I had taken in posting this next song of the series.


Song-Prabhu ka naam japo man mere (Mukesh NFS)(1975) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

prabhu ka naam japo mann mere
prabhu ka naam japo mann mere
door kare wohi sankat tere
door kare wohi sankat tere
hare Ram hare Ram
Ram Ram hare hare
hare Krishna hare Krishna
Kishna Krishna hare hare
prabhu ka naam japo mann mere

jeevan rain basera hai
kya tera kya mera hai
yeh, jeevan rain basera hai
kya tera kya mera hai
kyun naino se neer jhare re
door kare wohi sankat tere
hare Ram hare Ram
Ram Ram hare hare
hare Krishna hare Krishna
Kishna Krishna hare hare
prabhu ka naam japo mann mere

pinjra jab khul jaataa hai
paanchi kab ruk paata hai
yeh, pinjra jab khul jaataa hai
paanchi kab ruk paata hai
kyun iska afsos kare re
door kare wohi sankat tere
hare Ram hare Ram
Ram Ram hare hare
hare Krishna hare Krishna
Kishna Krishna hare hare
prabhu ka naam
prabhu ka naam
prabhu ka naam japo mann mere
