nand ghar anand bhayo
jai kanhaiyya lal ki

Greetings all friends on this auspicious celebration of Nandotsav today. Just a little while back, the prayers and aartis were being held in all temples celebrating the anniversary of the appearance of Krsna, in a jailhouse in Mathura. The main telecast was coming from the Janambhoomi temple in Mathura itself. All temples were crowded with devotees who had come for the darshan of infant Krsna, who appeared to Devaki and Vasudev during their confinement in the prison of Kans, the cruel and vengeful king of Mathura.  And worse, Kans was the cousin brother of the very lady, Devaki, whom he had imprisoned. The story of that confinement and of the reasons behind it has been told many times.

The interesting thing to contemplate is the circumstances that accompanied this event of the ‘birth’ of the Almighty, in form of an infant. As is documented in the historical record, the appearance of the Lord occurred at midnight. The sky was overcast and the entire surroundings were in deep darkness. Sleep had descended heavily on every inhabitant of Mathura, including the keepers of the prison. When the Lord appeared, all locks opened and all chains dropped away, by themselves. And the only two people awake in that dark night were Devaki and Vasudev.

As per a pre-plan, Vasudev carried the ‘new born’ infant in a straw basket, and walked all the way from Mathura to the home of Nand Baba, in the village of Gokul, across the Yamuna river. The entire household of Nand Baba was also in darkness and all the occupants of that home were also in deep sleep. Vasudev laid the ‘new born’ child to sleep besides the sleeping Yashoda, and carried away the newborn girl child with him, back to Mathura. The details of the encounter with Kans next morning are well known too, as to how he tried to end the life of the girl child also, as he had ended the life of six male infants before that.

The scenario at the Nand Baba’s household, next morning as the family awoke from sleep, was full of joy and happiness. Ladies of the house espied the beautiful child sleeping next to Yashoda. They rushed to inform Nand Baba. And after that, all celebrations broke loose. Thousands of visitors came to the home of Nand Baba, from Gokul and from other nearby villages and towns. There was an unending stream of people coming and going from that household. All forms of instruments were being played. There was singing and dancing and shouting. And yes, feasting also.

And so, in a manner of speaking, the real celebration of this appearance of the Lord, is the day of Nandotsav, the day when the child was first seen in the household of Nand Baba. On the night before, there was no one around to see this event of His appearance, and no one to congratulate and celebrate, no singing and dancing took place. This tradition is still carried by many temples and many households in the Brij region. The real celebrations of the appearance of the Lord start at the break of dawn, on the next day. For them, the event of appearance of the night before is not known.

This song of Nandotsav celebration in the home of Nand Baba, is from the 1957 film, ‘Neel Mani’. The words are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is by Chitragupt. The singing voices are those of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur, accompanied by chorus. This film makes a debut on our blog today.

And yes, Atul ji, here is a song by Rafi Sb from the year 1957. So Rafi Sb’s count now goes to 2601 and the songs of the year 1957 make a century break at 400. And so the other target that you had in mind for yesterday, is also being met today.

Once again, a ton of good wishes and greetings to all, on this joyous occasion of the appearance of the Lord. May this celebration fill your life with happiness and peace, and that your household and family be blessed with good health and prosperity.

Jai Kanhaiyya Lal Ki

Lyrics

gokul mein chaaya ujiaala
magan har gwaala
hua re matwaala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
gokul mein chaaya ujiaala
magan har gwaala
hua re matwaala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala

ho jhoole re dekho
palna mein lalna
bhooli hain sudh gwaalania
ho..oye
jhoole mein dekho
palna mein lalna
bhooli hai sudh gwaalania
apne hi aap dekho
bajne lagi re
chham chham paaon ki paijaniya
chham chham
chham chham paaon ki paijaniya
arey sanwari surat
mohani moorat
roop ki saanche mein dhaala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala

akhiyon ka taara
maiyyaa jasoda ka pyaara
laadla nand dulaara re
jhoole jo jhoola
to jhoolne ke sang sang
jhoole ye phaag hamaara re
nanhe nanhe haathon ko nachaaye
muskaaye re
mukhda to dekho re lalan ka
jasoda ki godi mein
aaya re utar maano
pyaara pyaara chanda gagan ka
ho oo
pyaara pyaara chanda gagan ka
ho oo
mukhda to dekho re lalan ka

oo oo oo
oo oo ooo
darshan ka durlabh
mauka ye bhaiya
darshan ka durlabh
mauka ye bhaiya
haathon se jaane na paaye re
bhaiya haathon se jaane na paaye re
dekho swarag se ye devta
dharti pe utar kar aaye re
oye re neeche utar kar aaye re
saawan ye sukh ka
barsaa to saara
gokul hua re hariyaala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala

gokul mein chaaya ujiaala
magan har gwaala
hua re matwaala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala
jasoda ki godi mein khele nandlala

गोकुल में छाया उजियाला
मगन हर ग्वाला
हुआ रे मतवाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
गोकुल में छाया  उजियाला
मगन हर ग्वाला
हुआ रे मतवाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला

हो झूले में देखो
पलना में ललना
भूली हैं सुध ग्वालनिया
हो॰॰ओए
हो झूले में देखो
पलना में ललना
भूली हैं सुध ग्वालनिया
अपने ही आप देखो
बजने लगी रे
छम छम पाँओं की पैंजनिया
छम छम
छम छम पाँओं की पैंजनिया
अरे सांवरी सूरत
मोहनी मूरत
रूप के साँचे में ढाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला

अँखियों का तारा
मैय्या जसोदा का प्यारा
लाडला नन्द दुलारा रे
झूले जो  झूला
तो झूलने के संग संग
झूले ये फाग हमारा रे
नन्हें नन्हें हाथों को नचाए
मुसकाए रे
मुखड़ा तो देखो रे ललन का
जसोदा की गोदी में
उतर आया मानो
प्यारा प्यारा चंदा गगन का
हो ओ
प्यारा प्यारा चंदा गगन का
हो ओ
मुखड़ा तो देखो रे ललन का

ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
दर्शन का दुर्लभ
मौका ये भैया
दर्शन का दुर्लभ
मौका ये भैया
हाथों से जाने ना पाये रे
भैया हाथों से जाने ना पाये रे
देखो स्वरग से ये देवता
धरती पे उतर कर आए रे
ओए रे नीचे उतर कर आए रे
सावन ये सुख का
बरसा तो सारा
गोकुल हुआ रे हरियाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला

गोकुल में छाया उजियाला
मगन हर ग्वाला
हुआ रे मतवाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला
जसोदा की गोदी में खेले नन्दलाला

Sudhir ji,

Thanks for posting this song today.
I am very happy that in your write up, you have mentioned that Devki was the cousin sister of Kansa.
Very few people know this fact. 99 % people in the world sincerely believe that Devki was Kansa’s own sister.
In the clan of Yadu-according to the Bhagwat Puran- there were two brothers. Ugrasen and Devka. Kansa was Ugrasen’s son and Devki was the daughter of Devka. King Kansa loved Devki very much as he had no own sister.
When Vasudev, son of Sura married Devki, king Kansa was very sad to part with her. He drove her chariot himself to escort her with her husband. At that very time, the Celestial voice told him that the eighth child of his sister-whom he was lovingly escorting- would kill him.
Hearing this, Kansa became ferocious and dragged Devki to kill her. Vasudev somehow pacified him and promissed that he would personally give every child of theirs to him.
When the first child was born, Vasudev gave it to kansa, but kansa returned it saying he would want only the Eighth child.
Kansa’s evil adviser Banasur aksed him not to believe Vasudev and safely kill all his children. To ensure every child is killed, Vasudev and Devki should be imprisoned.
Therefore the couple was imprisoned.
Also the fact that Nand was Vasudeva’s own brother is not known to most people.
