Tujh ko main jaan gayi maan ya na maan wai wai

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 01
———————————————————————-
This is a revival of the series ‘Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable(II)’. Part I of the series had reached perfect conclusion with the 10th song ‘na de ilzaam dil unn ko “. Now I feel that part II of the series is also called for. ‘Zarurat eejad ki maa hai’ meaning – necessity is the mother of invention. The saying in urdu felt believable when I was a child. If I ever say this front of my son, he is going to laugh at me, I am sure. He will have hundred examples to disprove the concept.

This song I am posting is again a memory from school/radio days. It is a duet with Lata from ‘Zabak’ (1961). A relic from the past , this is among the few Rafi-Lata duets which remain to be posted in the blog. Need is must, so iss ka number bhi kabhi na kabhi aana thha, to lo aa gayaa.

While watching the song picturized on Mahipal and Shyama, I thought the outdoor location looks like closer to Mumbai, and surrounding areas. It may be Goregaon or around Powai lake. These areas might been have pristine in 1960-61, may not have been populated. That brings me to erstwhile Bombay.

Recently, I read that New Zealand starts from Bombay. I never knew that there is place called New Zealand nearby. And this is the truth, not an advertising gimmick. This should get all mumbaikars on their feet, really ‘ke kahaan hai new Zealand’, so close to us. It turned out that there is no place called New Zealand around Mumbai, but there is place called Bombay in New Zealand, just outside Auckland. And the Aucklanders are considered to be rude by the rest of the New Zealanders. So the phrase that ‘new Zealand starts from Bombay’ as that is apparently the end of Auckland city. That means the New Zealanders generally consider themselves to be polite and well mannered. Talk of generalising and being in khushfahmi. As Dev Anand said in some movie ” khushfahmi hai aap ki “. Oh I love New Zealand , have seen the scenic beauty of it in films. namely in Rakesh Roshan’s ‘Kaho na pyar hai”.

So how come the name Bombay ? The place got its name as the people who settled in the area arrived on a ship named ‘Bombay’. Simple really, just like late music director Ravi became known as Bombay Ravi, in South Indian Film industry.

I did tell my son this story about Bombay and New Zealand and asked him if it is okay to love New Zealand. He said no, how can you love New Zealand ? I said why? he replies, it is the country with world’s highest rate of alcoholics, further enlightening me that India has second highest rate of alcoholics in the world. Ahem, it is getting complicated, so we will leave it at that.

One can look at the sights and colours of New Zealand in this song .

So this is the song for revival of Incomparable Rafi series. I plan to culminate it on 31/07/2016. This song from ‘Zabak’ is written by Prem Dhawan and music director is Chitragupt. The audio version has one extra stanza, so the lyrics are of longer version. Another evergreen hit duet in the film by the same team is :

Teri duniya se door
chale ho ke majboor
hamen yaad rakhna
jaao kahin bhi sanam
tumhen itni qasam
hamen yaad rakhna

This mukhda words remind me of another song by Prem Dhawan from Pavitra Papi :

Teri duniya se
hoke majboor chala aa
main bohat door
bohat door
bohat door chala aa

Song-Tujh ko main jaan gayi maan ya na maan wai wai (Zabak)(1961) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

tujh ko main jaan gayi
maan ya na maan wai wai
ye to hai aap ka ehsaan
meri jaan wai wai

tujh ko main jaan gayi
maan ya na maan wai wai
ye to hai aap ka ehsaan
meri jaan wai wai

wai wai wai wai wai
wai wai wai wai wai

chalna sambhal ke ae
raste mein dekho
achha nahin hai
kisi se takraanaa
chalna sambhal ke ae
raste mein dekho
achha nahin hai
kisi se takraanaa
milti kahaan se ae
tum si haseena
milne ka hota hai
koi to bahaana
achhi yeh aaj hui
jaan pehchaan wai wai

tujh ko main jaan gayi
maan ya na maan wai wai
ye to hai aap ka ehsaan
meri jaan wai wai

wai wai wai wai wai
wai wai wai wai wai

jaisi hai halchal
dil mein hamaare
betaabiyaan wohi
dil mein tumhaare

chhodo ji ham pe ae
baat hamaari
dekhe huye hain
yeh pyaar ke ishaare
roko yeh pyaar ka toofaan
meri jaan wai wai

tujh ko main jaan gayi
maan ya na maan wai wai
ye to hai aap ka ehsaan
meri jaan wai wai

wai wai wai wai wai
wai wai wai wai wai

ham to tumhaare ae
ho hi chuke hain
maano na maano
yeh marzi tumhaari
ham to tumhaare ae
ho hi chuke hain
maano na maano
yeh marzi tumhaari
jo hai tamanna aa
dil mein tumhaare
ab to tamanna
wohi hai hamaari
tum pe yeh jaan bhi qurbaan
meri jaan wai wai

tujh ko main jaan gayi
maan ya na maan wai wai
ye to hai aap ka ehsaan
meri jaan wai wai

wai wai wai wai wai
wai wai wai wai wai

A very popular song of its time.
How it was not posted earlier?
Lekin har cheez ka ek waqt muqarrar hota hai.
The destiny of this song was that it was waiting to be discovered by you.
Thank you, Nahm m’am, very much for bringing it again to limelight for us.
All in all, a lovely song. (I wonder whether your son finds it foot-tapping – our generation did.)
Regards,
Avadh Lal

Sir,
I don’t think my son has ever heard this particular song, but is sure would have a funny response to it too .
Regards.

Surprisingly I never heard this song.
And nice bit of info on Bombay in New Zealand 👌
