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

Boot Chappal Sandal, Mardaana Ya Zanaana

The 9th of June is the birthday of our beloved Arunkumar Deshmukhji, often fondly referred to as our in-house encyclopaedia. 🙂

Arunji, it takes me great pleasure to wish you a very happy birthday on this occasion – and I say this on behalf of all Atulites for whom you are a very special person.

Arunji, it would not be an exaggeration to say that ever since you got involved with this blog, it has gone to a totally different level altogether. When Atul started this blog in July 2008 (and I have been with it since then), his write-ups would describe the songs, the films and artistes to the best of his ability –  and, as always, Atul did a 100% sincere job of it (as he does even today).

But (and I am sure Atul will not mind my saying this), Atul’s knowledge (and mine too, for that matter) was nowhere close to being of the level required to make this blog anything like the treasure-house of information and trivia it has become today.

For that, credit has to go to truly knowledgeable people like you (and some others – I don’t need to take names, they know who they are). If this blog could sing, it would probably be singing to you, saying “Khuda jaane kaisi suhaani ghadi thi…meri zindagi mein huzoor aap aaye” (I’ve deliberately mixed two lines to construct this). 🙂

Arunji, thanks to your ever-insightful comments and posts, I feel my knowledge of Hindi films of yesteryear is much more enriched than it was before. You provide so much background information, not just on a film but on everyone involved with it, that it gives a completely different and comprehensive understanding of the subject under discussion.

Very importantly, for me at least, your inputs give me a sense of the times. If you’re talking about the 1930s or 1940s, the stories you narrate make me understand those times better. When you talk about Hyderabad under Nizam rule, it transports me to that period.

I will always have fond memories of how you took the trouble to dig out information to answer what I thought was an innocuous query about artistes who migrated to Pakistan post-partition. I’d put this query out there – and completely forgotten about it. About a year later, after doing a lot of research, you responded to me on e-mail with a reply. I can never forget that!

But that is how you are, Arunji. Not just thorough – also very thoughtful.

This is only one side of your nature. Apart from your tremendous knowledge (which is why we call you our in-house encyclopaedia :-)), your attitude towards life itself is something I admire a lot. You’re always looking at things positively, sharing jokes and other interesting snippets on life, participating as much as possible in everything.

Another thing I like a lot is that you don’t keep getting into “hamaare zamaane mein sab achha tha, aaj kal sab bekaar hai”  mode. 🙂 Whether a song is from 1930s or from 2017, you’re happy to appreciate it. Believe me, this is a very rare quality. 🙂

One of my fondest memories of recent years is that Bangalore gangout we had at Gajendraji’s place where finally the Bangalore gang got to meet you.

I could say a lot more, Arunji, but I will end this post here and move on to the song for today.

It is a light-hearted C Ramchandra composition – from a film I happen to have seen. (I’ve usually more comfortable posting songs from films that I have seen).

The film is ‘Kaarigar’ (1958). Starring Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy, it is about the travails of Ashok Kumar, a craftsman. His experiences looking for a job, how his wife copes with the situation, how he gets cheated, and so on.

As I close, once again wishing you a very happy birthday, Arunji. Can’t thank the blog enough for bringing us together into the Atulite family.

Song  – Boot Chappal Sandal, Mardaana Ya Zanaana (Kaarigar) (1958) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – C Ramchandra
Chorus

Lyrics

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

na thugee hai na chori
halaal ka hai dhandha
na bheekh maange baabu
na maange hum chanda
paalish karte pait bharte
paalish karte pait bharte
chhod ke oopar waale ko
nahin kisi se darte
dabiya burush salaamat
hai apna yahi taraana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana
boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

ragad ragad ke jooton ki
hum aise mael utaaren
nai naveli dulhaniya ko
jaise log sanwaare
ragad ragad ke jooton ki
hum aise mael utaaren
nai naveli dulhaniya ko
jaise log sanwaare
baat kahoon ik laala
hai joota tera saaf
lekin dil hai tera kaala
sachchi baat na maane
hai jhoothon ka zamaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

bhookh pet ko lagti jitni
utni karein kamaayi
kar nahin sakte bhalaa kisi ka
phir kyon karein buraai
bhookh pet ko lagti jitni
utni karein kamaayi
kar nahin sakte bhalaa kisi ka
phir kyon karein buraai
jooton ke daag hain dhote
aur taan ke lambi sote
saath na le ke jaaye
koi maal ya khazaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

ना ठग्गी है ना चोरी
हलाल का है धंधा
ना भीख मांगें बाबू
ना मांगें हम चंदा
पालिश करते पेट भरते
पालिश करते पेट भरते
छोड़ के ऊपर वाले को
नहीं किसी से डरते
डबिया बुरुश सलामत
है अपना यही तराना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

रगड़ रगड़ के जूतों की
हम ऐसी मैल उतारें
नई नवेली दुलहनीया को
जैसे लोग संवारें
रगड़ रगड़ के जूतों की
हम ऐसी मैल उतारें
नई नवेली दुलहनीया को
जैसे लोग संवारें
बात कहूँ इक लाला
है जूता तेरा साफ
लेकिन दिल है तेरा काला
सच्ची बात ना माने
है झूठों का ज़माना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

भूख पेट को लगती जितनी
उतनी करें कमाई
कर नहीं सकते भला किसी का
फिर क्यों करें बुराई
भूख पेट को लगती जितनी
उतनी करें कमाई
कर नहीं सकते भला किसी का
फिर क्यों करें बुराई
जूतों के दाग हैं धोते
और तान के लंबी सोते
साथ ना ले के जाये
कोई माल या खज़ाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

ThanKu Rajaji

Thanks. By my standards, a very short post. Almost like a T20 game. 🙂

Happy Birthday Arunji

Thanks, Nitin ji.

Raja ji,

Thanks a Zillion for taking so much trouble to write this post.
Do I really deserve so much or is it your love that drove you to post this post ?
I sincerely feel that It is you people’s encouragement that motivates me to contribute consistently on this lovely Blog of our dear Atul ji. I am from that school which taught me that you get wiser by sharing your knowledge. It is logical that you distribute what you have, before you disappear- instead of destroying all that with yourself.
A world famous Blog’s platform, people who appreciate your work, and love and respect showered on you, if this is not Heaven, then what is ?
Thanks again and looking forward to a visit to Bangalore when you are available….

I meant every word I said, Arunji. 🙂
And yes, it would be wonderful to meet again – last time it felt too short. But then, with you, will any amount of time be enough? 🙂

At 1:16 the junior artiste in his younger avtaar Harbans.Darshan.M.Arora(as a customer to Boot polish boys, with Topi on his head)

as per this yourtube video the lady in the video clip is Helen,

Just want to mention that it is thanks to Sudhirji that this post made it at all here in time for Arunji’s birthday.

I sent the post late yesterday evening (Indian time) to Atul and Sudhirji – that too with incomplete/wrong lyrics. The videos I could locate were garbled/chopped. I had no hope of salvaging the situation – but Sudhirji (being Sudhirji :-)) did his magic. He had the correct and complete lyrics from audio and managed to post the song just before 9th June changed to 10th June in India. He then added the Devnagari script lyrics also for good measure.

So all was well – but it “went down to the wire”, as Ravi Shastri would say. 🙂

So, thank you very much, Sudhirji.

Arunkumar Ji,
Yesterday my PC was not working, as such best wishes for your birthday are belated.
Better late than never.
If I mistake not,it is seventy-seven (longest spelling up to hundred) not out. Buck up.
Many happy returns of yesterday !

D Samant ji,
Thank you very much for your wishes.
Yes I have entered 78th year of my life.
Life becomes interesting by interacting with people like you.

Wishing you A Very Happy Birthday, Arunji !!!
Wishing you the best of health and happiness. 🙂 🙂

Thanks, Manju ji,
It is the good wishes of people like you that help me to look at the remaining life with hope, enthusiasm and energy.
Thanks again.
-AD
