Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ka Se Kul Duniya Hamaari Jis Mein Bharat Desh Hai

Today, the 8th of March, is a very special day for some of us.

No, it’s not because it is International Women’s Day. Well, that too, but also because it is the birthday of somebody associated with the Hindi film industry who is very close to us.

Yes, I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Sb would have been 96 today had he been alive.

But so, what if he isn’t? Even 37 years after his death, Sahir lives on. Legends like him don’t die – they are alive everyday through their legacy. In fact, there’s hardly a day when Sahir’s presence, in the form of his poetry or lyrics, does not figure in our lives.

So Sahir saab, when you said “kyon koi mujhko yaad kare”, you underestimated your legacy.

When you said “masroof zamana mere liye, kyon waqt apna barbaad karey”, you underestimated the extent of love of your fans. Arrey, Sahir saab, aap yunh karein jahaan hamaara aabaad aur hum na karein aapke khaatir thoda sa waqt barbaad? I think he’s turning in his grave now, so I better stop this. 🙂

Among the many luminaries who have contributed to the industry in its little over 100 years of existence, there are few for whom I have as much fondness and affection as for Sahir. The other name that comes readily to mind is Rafi saab. Just to be clear, it is not for their ability alone. That they were both absolute giants in their field is accepted by one and all. But then there have been others too. There is no dearth of stars and superstars in the industry. There have been geniuses too.

Then what is it that makes Sahir and Rafi saab so special for me? By all accounts, it’s not even as if they were similar sorts of people. Yes, they died within a few months of each other but I think they were very different types of people.

Sahir was seen as a bitter person for a large part of his personal interactions. He was anti-establishment, he drank a lot, he was seen as arrogant and upset people easily. Rafi saab was almost his antithesis – he is universally acknowledged as having been a very humble person, hardly anyone had anything bad to say about him, he got along very well with the establishment, he seemed contented for the most part. And he was a teetotaller.

So, very different personalities. And yet, I have the highest regard for both of them. And that is because, as human beings – and not just in their fields – they were extraordinary.

Anyway this isn’t about Rafisaab, so I will stay with Sahir from here on.

If Sahir was bitter and anti-establishment, there was a good reason for that. He was against oppression of all sorts. And the establishment represented that oppression.  He disliked hypocrisy – and society seemed to embrace hypocrisy. He disliked bigotry in all its forms – and it was rampant in society at the time. He was sensitive to the manner in which vulnerable sections of society were treated.

So it was only natural that he vented through a medium that he was most well-versed in – poetry.

Yes, he lamented “ye duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai”.

He sarcastically mocked society “Cheen-o-Arab hamaara, Hindustan hamaara…kehne ko ghar nahin hai, saara jahaan hamaara”.

And as if delivering a tight slap to all those religious bigots out there, he said “Tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega, insaan ki aulaad hai, insaan banega”.

His words themselves wept, when he wrote “aurat ne janam diya mardon ko, mardon ne usey bazaar diya”.

That was how society was – he was only showing society a mirror.  Not for Sahir, the world of sycophancy. He said it as he saw it.

And this is why I respect him SO much. He is so much more than just a poet for me. There have been many other poets – but the fire in Sahir’s belly, as reflected in his poetry, stands out. Maybe I see a bit of myself in him, although I wish I could express my thoughts with a fraction of Sahir’s eloquence. :- )

Of course, there was much more to him than just “angry” poetry. When he chose to, he could write the most sublime romantic poetry too. The songs of ‘Hum Dono’ (1961), ‘Gumraah’ (1963), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Hamraaz’ (1967)  are all testimony to this – though one of my favourites is “Parbaton Ke Pedon Par” from Shagun (1964).

And he did write positive and uplifting lines too.  “Wo Subah Kabhi To Aayegi” and “Ponchh Kar Ashq Apni Aankhon Se” are songs I love listening to. For someone who was an atheist, Sahir even penned some of the best devotional songs in Hindi films – “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyam Saanwre”,  “Allah Tero Naam” and “Tora Mann Darpan Kehlaaye”, to just give just a few examples.

Coming to the song for today, it’s a delightful song that I heard for the first time only when Avinashji sent its lyrics to me with the request that I do a post for it. It is from the film “Chaandi Ki Deewaar” (1964). Quintessentially Sahir, it is a long song, where children seem to be learning the alphabet.  The song itself is in praise of Bharat and its rich history. It pays tribute to the many personalities who have played their part in making Bharat what it is today.

There isn’t a video, so we don’t know the exact situation but it looks like a children’s song, being taught to kids.  But it’s just as enjoyable for adults as it must be for kids.

I’m sure you will enjoy it too.  I must thank Avinashji for introducing me to this song.

Sahir was one of a kind.  He was a product of his times – and as the times have changed, maybe we might never see his like again. We can only be in awe of his legacy – and be thankful to him for all the wonderful poetry he has left behind.

Kyon Koi Mujhko Yaad Kare. . . . .” – kya baat kar rahe hain aap, Sahir saab?

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwaala)

ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hain
kha se kheti jis mein
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

ga se gangaa sabse pehle
aarya utrey thhe jahaan
gha se ghar ki aabroo
rakshak hai jis ke naujawaan
ga se gangaa sabse pehle
aarya utrey thhe jahaan
gha se ghar ki aabroo
rakshak hai jis ke naujawaan

cha se raja chandra gupta aur
chha se uska chhatra hai
desh ke itihaas kaa wo yug
sunehra patra hai
cha se raja chandra gupta aur
chha se uska chhatra hai
desh ke itihaas kaa wo yug
sunehra patra hai
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein  bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

ja jallaluddin akbar
jis ne sau hiley kiye
hindu muslim nasl aur
mazhab milaane ke liye
ja jallaluddin akbar
jisne sau hiley kiye
hindu muslim nasl aur
majhab milaane ke liye
jha se hai jhaansi ki raani
ta se tipu surmaa
jin ke jeete jee na sikkaa
chal sakaa angrez ka
jha se hai jhaansi ki raani
ta se tipu surmaa
jin ke jeete jee na sikkaa 
chal sakaa angrez ka
tha se wo thaakur jise
tagore kehta hai jahaan
vishwa bhar mein uski rachnaaon
se hai bharat kaa man
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

da se dal kashmir ki
jo har nazar ka noor hai
dha se dhaka jiski malmal
aaj tak mash’hoor hai
da se dal kashmir ki
jo har nazar ka noor hai
dha se dhaka jiski malmal
aaj tak mash’hoor hai

ta se hai taaj agre ka
ik achhoota shaahkaar
shahjahan ki laadli
mumtaz begam ka mazaar
ta se hai taaj agre ka
ik achhoota shaahkaar
shahjahan ki laadli
mumtaz begam ka mazaar
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

da se dilli dil watan ka
dha se dhadkan pyaar ki
na se nehru jis pe hai nazaren lagi sansaar ki
da se delhi dil watan ka
dha se dhadkan pyaar ki
na se nehru jis pe hai nazaren lagi sansaar ki
pa se uska panchsheel
aur pha se uska surkh phool
ba se bapu jisko pyaare the ahinsa ke usool
pa se uska panchsheel
aur pha se uska surkh phool
ba se bapu jisko pyaare the ahinsa ke usool

bha bhagat singh jisne lalkaara videshi raaj ko
chadh ke phaansi par bachaaya apni maa ki laaj ko
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

ma se wo mazdoor jis ka daur ab aane ko hai
ya se yug sarmaayadaari ka jo mit jaane ko hai
ma se wo mazdoor jis ka daur ab aane ko hai
ya se yug sarmaayadaari ka jo mit jaane ko hai

ra se rastaa pyaar ka
la se lagan insaaf ki
va se aisa vaayumandal jis se barse shaanti
ra se rastaa pyaar ka
la se lagan insaaf ki
va se aisa vaayumandal jis se barse shaanti

sha se shaahon ka zamaana
sa se samjho jaa chuka
ha se ham sab ek se hon
waqt ye farmaa chukaa
ka se kul duniya hamaari
jis mein bharat desh hai
kha se kheti jis mein 
jeevan daan kaa sandesh hai

Raja Saab, many many thanks for this post.
Excellent post indeed !!!
Thanks again !!

I’m looking for a multilingual song in which the punjabi stanza begins with ‘Sadda des Punjab khiliyan phool gulab’ and Marwadi with ‘Mharo des Marwad, na koi darakhat jhad, na koi nadiya pahad’. Lata and chorus. Stanzas in Marathi and Bengali too, but can’t remember.

Shubha ji

The song is “Bolo Wo Hai Kis Ka Desh”, from the 1961 film ‘Pyaar Ki Pyaas’. The song is not yet posted on our blog. We shall try to get it online shortly.
