Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.

The most remarkable trait of Rafi Sb’s singing is his ability to project performance through sound. He had a natural grasp of not just the vocal and emotional expression of the on screen persona, but also a keen understanding of the physical expression. Putting these together, it is no wonder that in his singing, one is hard put to separate the voice from the on screen persona, who so ever that person may be. This amazing ability made Rafi Sb’s singing the most innately resident voice for any artist.

Atul ji has mentioned in an earlier post today, that on this blog, we are actually celebrating Rafi Sb, on every single day. And our homage is not to repeat a song. It is a new song – new, meaning a song as yet un-posted on the blog. And in the process, we keep on discovering obscure and hitherto unheard gems, or we rediscover delightful songs that made quite a stir in their days, but were soon forgotten and consigned under the sands of time. Whereas other blogs, or radio programs, or even live celebrations continue to recycle the same old ‘popular hits’, and will continue to talk about Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar, Dilip Kumar etc. Or they will talk about Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan also, but again, in the context of ‘popular hits’ only. On this blog, we do serve more, the interest of the lesser heard, obscure and unheard songs, almost on a daily basis.

Today’s fabulous song belongs to that category. Heard often on the radio in my childhood, this song was lost for quite some time in the murk of anonymity. I had memories of it in my mind, but was able to lay hands on the actual song just about a few months ago. Online, some vested interests had post teaser versions, of just half minute or 45 seconds. The song has appeared online in its full version, just about a couple of months ago.

The film is ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The songwriter is Qamar Jalaalabaadi, the music is from the mind of Sudhir Phadke. The voice of Asha Bhosle accompanies Rafi Sb. However, Asha ji’s share of lines is lesser in comparison. On screen, this song is picturized on Mahipal and Kalpana. As the words in the song suggest, literally the scene is that the heroine ascends from within the waters of a pond (or a river). And the poet’s imagination captures the scene so beautifully, saying that a new moon has arisen from the waters.

Words, alas are words. Their impact does not go too far. It gets limited by the visual that may spring in the reader’s mind as these lines are perused. But then, frame these words in a semi classical mould, the way only Sudhir Phadke can, and have the voice of Rafi Sb to express the particular emotion. The combination leaves out very little for imagination. The next best thing is just the visual of the scene. And that too, as we have discussed many times in these pages, is at times so lackluster that the mind says, just listen to the singing expression, and do away with the visual. That is the power of performing expression that is projected by some. By some exceptional singer – like Rafi Sb.

Forever and ever, Rafi Sb.

 

Song – Jaane Meri Akhiyon Ne Dekha Hai Kya (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

jaane meri akhiyon ne dekha hai kya
dekha hai kya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
jaane meri akhiyon ne dekha hai kya
dekha hai kya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya

mukhde pe nanhi nanhi boondon ke dhaare
chanda ke saath jaise
chhote chhote taare
din mein hain taare
ye jaadu hai kya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
jaane teri akhiyon ne dekha hai kya
dekha hai kya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya

nain kisi ke
roop hai apna
din ke ujaale mein kaisa ye sapna
ang ang kis ne rang bhara
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya

main hoon pujaari tu
meri kala hai
jahaan tere pag
wahaan mann bhi chala hai
kya hai ye naata
ye tu hi bataa
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
jaane teri akhiyon ne dekha hai kya
dekha hai kya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya
paani se nikla hai chaand naya

जाने मेरी अखियों ने देखा है क्या
देखा है क्या
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
जाने मेरी अखियों ने देखा है क्या
देखा है क्या
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया

मुखड़े पे नन्ही नन्ही बूंदों के धारे
चंदा के साथ जैसे
छोटे छोटे तारे
दिन में हैं तारे
ये जादू है क्या
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
जाने तेरी अखियों ने देखा है क्या
देखा है क्या
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया

नैन किस के
रूप है अपना
दिन उजाले में कैसा ये सपना
अंग अंग किस ने रंग भरा
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया

मैं हूँ पुजारी तू
मेरी कला है
जहां तेरे पग
वहाँ मन भी चला है
क्या है ये नाता
तू ही बता
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
जाने तेरी अखियों ने देखा है क्या
देखा है क्या
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
पानी से निकला है चाँद नया
