Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 16

‘ज’
“जब लड़का कह दे हाँ और लड़की कह दे ना”

A phrase in English language – ‘man of God’ is generally used for a person whose personality abounds with all qualities that are good in a human being. Some people that we know to be religious, humble, polite, kind, caring, helpful etc., we apply this phrase when we talk of them.

Talking of Rafi Sb, I have heard Nalin ji (Nalin Shah, the film historian and author) often use another phrase that is decidedly more special. He refers to Rafi Sb as ‘God’s own man’. We can discuss the etiology and the import of these phrases in detail. But of course the phrase used by Nalin ji, has a very special connotation. Some special people will be known as ‘man of God’, by the qualities we like about them, and the manner in which we see them interact with others around them. But there is a more rare breed of people, who have something special, an aura about them, that simply their presence gives a feeling of being close to the Supreme. I have never been in the presence of Rafi Sb, but hearing from those who have met him and interacted with him, one gets a feeling that the phrase applied by Nalin ji is very appropriate.

When the division of India occurred in 1947, there was a transition that happened in the film industry too. Many artists who had roots in what was to become West Pakistan, chose to return to their homes, and restart their lives in the new nation. We have many such examples of famous people who migrated to Pakistan from Bombay.

Apparently, Rafi Sb felt so much at home in Bombay, that he decided to stay. I read somewhere that when the transition was happening, a part of his family was in what was to become Pakistan. He decided and made arrangements for their return to Bombay. The question here is neither of allegiances, this side or that side, and nor of any thought about opportunities. Simply that he felt at home, he did not feel vulnerable where he was. He had the faith in the innate goodness of the human mind, and the faith of safety and sustenance in the beneficence of the Almighty, where ever he was. And such a faith resides in the heart of a person, who is all about goodness himself.

Today’s song in this series is from the film ‘Anjaam’ from 1952. The lyrics are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music composition is by Madan Mohan. The film is produced by VM Vyas under the banner of Sunrise Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The main cast of actors includes Premnath, Vijayantimala, Yaqub, Kuldip Kaur, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi Chitralekha amongst others.

Only the audio clip of this song is available. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this film and the online picturization of this song. Is this song performed online by Premnath, or by Yaqub?

There are eight songs listed for this film in the Geet Kosh. Five of these are already showcased on our blog. Here is the sixth song of this film. And yes, of course, the special is the voice of Rafi Sb.

 

Song – Jab Ladka Keh De Haan Aur Ladki Keh De Naa (Anjaam) (1952) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

jab ladka keh de haan
aur ladki keh de naa
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya

jab ladka keh de haai

haai. . . haai. . .

jab ladka keh de haai
aur ladki aankh dikhaaye
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
jab ladka keh de haan
aur ladki keh de naa
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya

har ladka pyaar jataaye
aur ladki preet chhupaaye
har ladka pyaar jataaye
aur ladki preet chhupaaye
hai aisi kitaab hai ladki
jo kabhi padhi na jaaye
hai aisi kitaab hai ladki
jo kabhi padhi na jaaye
kahey ladka ji huzoor
aur ladki bhaage door. . .
kahey ladka ji huzoor
aur ladki bhaage door
to samjho
to samjho
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
jab ladka keh de haan
aur ladki keh de naa
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya

haaye phooljhadi hai ladki
aur ladka lagaaye aag
haaye phooljhadi hai ladki
aur ladka lagaaye aag
hai phooljhadi mein aag
par nazar na aaye aag
hai phooljhadi mein aag
par nazar na aaye aag
jab ladka ho madhosh
aur ladki ho . . . . .
jab ladka ho madhosh
aur ladki ho khamosh
to samjho
to samjho
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
jab ladka keh de haan
aur ladki keh de naa
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya

aji preet ke rang ke hazaar
kabhi pyaar kabhi taqraar
aji preet ke rang ke hazaar
kabhi pyaar kabhi taqraar
gusse mein jo aaye ladki
gusse mein jo aaye ladki
to samjho hua iqraar
jab ladka baney sawaali
aur ladki de de gaali
jab ladka baney sawaali
aur ladki de de gaali
to samjho
to samjho
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
jab ladka keh de haan
aur ladki keh de naa
to samjho pyaar ho gaya
to samjho pyaar ho gaya. . .

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————–——————-

जब लड़का कह दे हाँ
और लड़की कह दे ना
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया

जब लड़का कह दे हाय

हाय॰॰॰ हाय॰॰॰

जब लड़का कह दे हाय
और लड़की आँख दिखाये
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
जब लड़का कह दे हाँ
और लड़की कह दे ना
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया

हर लड़का प्यार जताए
और लड़की प्रीत छुपाए
हर लड़का प्यार जताए
और लड़की प्रीत छुपाए
हाय ऐसी किताब है लड़की
जो कभी पढ़ी ना जाये
हाय ऐसी किताब है लड़की
जो कभी पढ़ी ना जाये
कहे लड़का जी हुज़ूर
और लड़की भागे दूर
तो समझो
तो समझो
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
जब लड़का कह दे हाँ
और लड़की कह दे ना
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया

हाय फूलझड़ी है लड़की
और लड़का आग लगाए
हाय फूलझड़ी है लड़की
और लड़का आग लगाए
है फूलझड़ी में आग
पर नज़र ना आए आग
है फूलझड़ी में आग
पर नज़र ना आए आग
जब लड़का हो मदहोश
और लड़की हो ॰॰॰॰॰
जब लड़का हो मदहोश
और लड़की हो खामोश
तो समझो
तो समझो
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
जब लड़का कह दे हाँ
और लड़की कह दे ना
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया

अजी प्रीत के रंग हज़ार
कभी प्यार कभी तकरार
अजी प्रीत के रंग हज़ार
कभी प्यार कभी तकरार
गुस्से में जो आए लड़की
गुस्से में जो आए लड़की
तो समझो हुआ इक़रार
जब लड़का बने सवाली
और लड़की दे दे गाली
जब लड़का बने सवाली
और लड़की दे दे गाली
तो समझो
तो समझो
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
जब लड़का कह दे हाँ
और लड़की कह दे ना
तो समझो प्यार हो गया
तो समझो प्यार हो गया॰ ॰ ॰

Dear Sudhir ji,
Rafi Saheb fits the epithet of “God’s own man” to a T.

Are V. M. Vyas and B. M. Vyas two different individuals?
If so, are they related and how?
Thanks and regards.
Avadh Lal

I have attended many Rafi Sb recordings. After each song he would inquire with the external audience whether aapko mera gaana kaisa laga; pasand aaya all the time combing his hair.
V. M. Vyas was a Gujarati and hindi movie director, cinematograher and writer and B. M. Vyas was Rajasthani, an actor and brother of Bharat Vyas.
