Sharam Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen

With this post, the blog has now clocked thirteen thousand two hundred unique songs. It may be so that these century milestone are now an expected regularity. But then, it is these (now) minor milestones, that come together and collectively put together and characterize the larger milestones – A journey of a thousand steps is made up of a thousand steps.

Congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. This, and many, many more such milestones put together, are the entire story of this blog.  The ‘wood’ is the outspread treasure that is dear to us, and every ‘tree’ is a different fruit, different flavor. The ‘wood’ – it is our honor and pride. The ‘trees’ – each one is a feast of different flavor and listening pleasure.

As we saunter about the woods and seek to explore newer flavors, the senses want to come to explore and to taste the rare and untouched flavors. The ritual is consistent and persistent. And the wood, it is rife with trees of un-tasted flavors, some of them so rare that it is a realization and a triumph, to be able to seek them, touch them, feel them, and partake of its flavor.

It is an anniversary also that we are celebrating with this song. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a music director active whose name is simply Premnath. (Mind you, different from the actor Premnath). Today is the anniversary of the passing away of music director Premnath.

One of the mysterious and enigmatic names in the history of Hindi film music – Premnath belongs to that list of music directors who have a reasonably sized body of work spread over a good number of years; and yet, despite having a recognizable body of work, there is very little of almost nothing known about him. I have searched and checked with some of the more important sources of information relating to Hindi films and film music. But have consistently drawn a blank. Pankaj Raag in his book, ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’, has put in almost a full page to this music director. But the write up is more of a sampling of Premnath’s body of work.

Premnath was born in the town of Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), on 5th July, 1918. His education as well as training in classical music happened in Multan, Lahore and Amritsar. In his early twenties, he gravitated to the nascent Punjabi film industry and Lahore. His did act in small roles – one film identified by Pankaj Raag is ‘Shehar e Khamoshi’. The author also identifies a film ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ from 1938, in which he also sang a song.

In the first half of 1940s, he got married and migrated to Bombay in search of a career in films. In 1946, he made his debut in the Bombay film industry as a music director, with the film ‘Rangbhoomi’. With a certain regularity, he would be directing the music for one to three films over a little less than a decade or so.

In 1947 came ‘Dehati’, ‘Pehla Pyaar’ and ‘Chandrahaas’. 1948 saw the release of his most discussed film, ‘Chaand Sitaare’ which carries the popular “Kaali Ghataayen Hain, Thandi Hawaaein Hain” in the voice of Mukesh. As per available information, Premnath was also the producer of ‘Chaand Sitaare’. This film also has some more notable songs in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. In 1951 came ‘Alakh Niranjan’ and ‘Maaya Machhindra’. Then there is a gap of a few years, and Premnath reappears as music director in 1959 with the religious film ‘Sati Vaishalini’. In the interim he recorded some songs for the film ‘Qaatil Kaun’, but that one remained unreleased. The career slowly fading away, he appeared as a joint music director for ‘Main Hoon Jaadugar’ (1965) with Nashaad, and for ‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ (1968) with Jimmy (James Singh).

In the few films that he has worked on, there are some notable gems as one gets to listen. The rare song being presented today, in the voice of Amirbai Karnataki Rajkumari Dubey, is a delightful composition. The words are from the pen of Rammurty Chaturvedi. Names that are obscure and unfamiliar, have come together to create a beautiful song that is a pleasure to listen to.

Song – Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen (Dehati) (1947) Singers – Rajkumari, Lyrics – Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD – Premnath

sharam se naina

morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen

morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

door rahen to paas bulaaun

bina kahe main samajh naa paaun
kya samjhe samjhaaun
bina kahe main samajh naa paaun
kya samjhe samjhaaun
sharam se naina
sharam se naina
o sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

jiya hamaara dag mag doley
dag mag doley
paagal mann
mann hi mann boley

jiya hamaara dag mag doley
dag mag doley
paagal mann
mann hi mann boley

bichhde shyam miley hain aa ke
kaise preet jataaun
sharam se naina
sharam se naina
ho sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
chori chori chupke chupke
jab shyam hamaare ghar aayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

शरम से नैना

शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
चोरी चोरी चुपके चुपके
जब श्याम हमारे घर आयें
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

दूर रहें तो पास बुलाऊँ
पास बुलाऊँ
दूर रहें तो पास बुलाऊँ
पास बुलाऊँ
पास रहें कुछ कह ना पाऊँ
कह ना पाऊँ
पास रहें कुछ कह ना पाऊँ
कह ना पाऊँ
बिना कहे मैं समझ ना पाऊँ
क्या समझे समझाऊँ
बिना कहे मैं समझ ना पाऊँ
क्या समझे समझाऊँ
शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
ओ शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

जिया हमारा डगमग डोले
डगमग डोले
पागल मन मन ही मन बोले
मन में बोले
जिया हमारा डगमग डोले
डगमग डोले
पागल मन मन ही मन बोले
मन में बोले
बिछड़े श्याम मिले हैं आके
कैसे प्रीत जताऊँ
बिछड़े श्याम मिले हैं आके
कैसे प्रीत जताऊँ
शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
हो शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
चोरी चोरी चुपके चुपके
जब श्याम हमारे घर आयें
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

congratulations atulji and sudhirji on reaching 13200
let us take fresh guard

Sudhir ji,

Congratulations for 13200th post.

Some information on the film DEHATI/VILLAGER (1947):

This was the first film Prem Adib (of Ram Rajya, 1943 fame) produced under the banner of Prem Adib Pictures which was directed by Narayanbhai Patel. Prem Adib and Ranjeet Kumari were in lead role with Jeevan, Shanta Kanwar, Raj Adib, Rammurthi etc in the supporting role.

It appears that originally, Rajrani who was the lead actress in ‘Pick Pocket/Jeb Katra (1947) was to act in ‘Dehati’ (1947) and the contract was signed for one year with a lump sum amount of Rs.9500/-. with monthly instalments. However, when the shooting commenced, the role was given to some other actress. Rajrani reported for shooting for about a month without any work. After one month, her contract was terminated by paying her one month’s remuneration. She filed a suit against Prem Adib Pictures claiming the remaining amount as per the contract. The case was won by Prem Adib Pictures on a technical point that at the time of the contract, Rajrani was a minor and this fact was not revealed to the banner. She being minor and not party to the contract was not entitled to sue Prem Adib pictures.

Sudhir ji,
Congratulations to Atul ji and you for this Century.
The information about composer Premnath was given in my article series ”Same Name Confusions”, posted on anmolfankaar.com two years back.
Any information about composer Premnath is not complete unless his work for the Cine artistes association for several years, is mentioned. In fact he worked in many other cinema related unions too.

Addition….

Composer Premnath served the Music Directors’ Association for 30 years as its Secretary.

Sudhir ji,
Are you sure that the singer is Amirbai ?
It does not sound like her.
I went thru the list of songs and films of Amirbai in 1947 and I do not find that the film name or the song is there. ( made by Vidur Suri)
Kindly look into it.
Composer Premnath hardly used Amirbai for his songs. He used different singers in every film.
-AD

Arun ji,

Thanks for the inputs, and also the query about the singer. Actually, I just went ahead with the information provided along with the song, by the friend who sent it to me.

I have received more queries in email, as well as on YouTube. There is a couple of suggestions that this is Rajkumari.

I am going to research this a little more. (I myself am not very good at identifying voices, especially female singing voices.) I will try to update this latest by tomorrow, after checking with a couple of other friends.

My first impression was also that it was Rajkumari’s voice. I have listened to the song again. It is unmistakably Rajkumari.

Congratulations Atul ji – Sudhir ji on 13200th post on the blog !!!
Thanks Sudhir ji for the post !!

Congratulations to all Atulites, readers and well wishers of the blog !!!

Dear All,

I have received multiple inputs regarding the singer of this song. All inputs have indicated that the singer’s voice in this song is that of Rajkumari Dubey and not Amirbai.

I have now updated the YouTube upload and have made the necessary corrections to the post. Please review.

Thanks and regards
Sudhir
