Jeene Ka Din Mar Jaane Ka Mausam

Last of the Music Moguls. Not that there have not been more prolific artists and music directors after him. One can readily name a few – Anu Malik, AR Rahman, Ilayaraja. But me, personally speaking, will not put the follow on ‘champs’ in the same bracket. Something ended when he left us, twenty three years ago. Times were-a-changing even as the 1960s played itself out. And he himself was singularly instrumental in that transformation.

The standard set by himself with the music of ‘Teesri Manzil’ was steep, as well as dignified. The queen melody of the 1950s stepped away from the dias and in came the fusion, a change of instruments, new experiments in how a song can be constructed. The “Zulfon Waali Haseena” was a brand new sound trend, that had been in the making for some years then. And with ‘Teesri Manzil’ it came into its own – a level of maturity that was both new as well as enchanting.

What Pancham Da had, that most other music directors in the new crop did not, was a solid grounding in the classical earth of this land, and a gentle hand on his back of one of the greatest maestros of classical and folk – his own father, SD Burman. His experimentations with newer orchestral combinations, his search for tunes that were a departure from the mould of golden era, his innovations capturing the mood essence – resulted in a body of musical work that attracted the new generation big time, and yet, kept a hold on the previous generations who were hooked to the music of his father and his father’s contemporaries. His orchestral escapades still have a enchanting character to them, touching on the memories of the golden era, but pushing forward with variations in pace and rhythm. And still, he would create music that was hallmark of the soft and melodic past when he touched films like ‘Amar Prem’ (1971), ‘Buddha Mil Gaya’ (1971), ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Anaamika’ (1973), ‘Raja Rani’ (1973), ‘Aandhi’ (1975), ‘Dharam Karam’ (1975), ‘Khushboo’ (1975), ‘Balika Badhu’ (1976), ‘Kinaara’ (1977), ‘Ghar’ (1978). . . I could go on and on.

As I sift through the films he composed for and the songs in those films, I keep picking up favorite gems of the first water, film after film, year after year. If he composed “Pyaar Ka Fasaana, Banaa Le Dil Deewaana” for ‘Teesra Kaun’ in 1965, he also composed “Kajre Badarwa Re, Marzi Teri Hai Kya Zaalima” for ‘Pati Patni’ (1966); if I pick up “Chunri Sambhaal Gori, Udee Chali Jaaye Re” from ‘Bahaaron Ke Sapne’ (1967), I am also so enchanted by “Kis Kaaran Kaamini Sharmaaye” from ‘Chandan Ka Palna’ (also 1967). If it is “Waadiyaan Mera Daaman, Raaste Meri Baahen” from ‘Abhilasha’ (1968) that strums the strings of my heart, it is also “Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan” of ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ (1969) that creates the poignant yet lovely mood of love. If it is “Jis Gali Mein Tera Ghar Na Ho Baalma” from ‘Kati Patang’ (1970) that touches the essence of expressions of love, then it is also “Kis Liye Maine Pyaar Kiya” from ‘The Train’ (1970) that gets to me. If I think the classical mould of ‘Aayo Kahaan Se Ghanshyam’ from ‘Buddha Mil Gaya’ (1971) is just excellence in music, then “Goria Kahaan Tera Des Re” of ‘Carvaan’ (1971) takes me into the rural folk expressions of exuberance. If “Tu Pyaar, Tu Preet, Tu Chaand, Tu Raat” from ‘Paraaya Dhan’ (1971) sounds like an ultimate in lover’s tete-a-tete, then the “lakk tunu tunu” phrase of “Yaari Ho Gayi Yaar Se” from ‘Do Chor’ (1972) simply refuses to leave the mind. When I listen to “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” from ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’ (1972), it feels there is no better expression of velvet touch of soft love; but then I hear the strains of “Saanson Mein Kabhi, Dil Mein Kabhi” from ‘Parchhaaiyaan’ (1972) and I feel there no better song to express promises of love. But then I get to hear “Jab Tak Rahe Tan Mein Jiyaa, Waada Raha O Saathiya” from ‘Samadhi’ (1972), and I am torn for preferences. From ‘Rampur Ka Laxman’ (1972), the song that simply is unforgettable for the hearts in first love is “Gum Hai Kisi Ke Pyaar Mein, Dil Subah Shaam”. If the protagonist of ‘Anamika’ (1973) is heartbroken with “Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si Palkon Pe Reh Gaye”, that sadness is jusxtaposed by the succor of finding love in “Zindagi Mein Aap Aaye, Ho Gayi Duniya Haseen” from ‘Chhalia’ (1973). If the sadness of separation is flowing with the music of “Kis Ka Rasta Dekhe, Ae Dil Ae Harjaai” from ‘Joshila’ (1973), then from ‘Raja Rani’ (1973) we have the touching synthesis of love in “Main Ik Chor Tu Meri Rani”. (I am so surprised this song is not yet on the blog). If the frolic of love is no better expressed than “Neend Chura Ke Raaton Mein” in ‘Shareef Badmaash’ (1973), then the stealing of hearts is epitomized in “Chura Liya Hai Tumne Jo Dil Ko” from ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’ (1973). If the expectations of love are no better expressed than “Kahin Karti Hogi Wo Mera Intezaar” in ‘Phir Kab Milogi’ (1974), then the epitome of sadness could be “Din Jaa Rahe Hain Ke Raaton Ke Saaye” from ‘Doosri Seeta’ (1974).

As always, I could simply go on and on. Apologies that I got carried away. But I just noticed that I have not even touched a complete decade yet, with the sampling above. And the mind thinks – fifty five years is no age to go. ‘What would have been’ is a question that has no answers, save the speculations. What remains behind is a pleasure collection of a wonderful musical legacy.

Today’s song is one of those favorites from radio listening days, when the details of the artists etc. was never a priority. It would be much later that this song would get bracketed with the favorites from Pancham Da. This lovely lover’s song, I am somewhat surprised that it has stayed away from the blog so far. The film is ‘Gomti Ke Kinaare’, from 1972. A film that was supposed to be the launch vehicle for Sameer Khan, of the Feroze-Sanjay-Akbar Khan lineage, youngest of the brothers. It turned out to be the swan song for the exceptional thespian of the Indian screen – Meena Kumari.

The words are from the pen of Majrooh Sb. The singing voices are of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen, the song is performed by Sameer Khan and Mumtaz. The debutante hero quite seems lost, as he tries to woo the seasoned young heroine of that era, and we find he is no match for her. The launch vehicle did not quite work for him, and he would quickly fade away from the silver screen after this offering.

Ah, but the song, such a delectable fare, for the taste buds of the aural variety. Expressions of love will probably never cease to be new. But then each one has a new flavor to impart. As is this lovely song of love. Pancham Da, at his best.

Song – Jeene Ka Din Mar Jaane Ka Mausam (Gomti Ke Kinaare) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman

Thanks for the post Sir !!! And what a lovely song !!
I like this song very much, but it’s a big ‘surprise’ that this was ‘to be posted yet’ ☺️
I heard it first time when I bought a ‘HMV’ cassette in 1987-88 I think ( forgetting the title of the compilation). Very nice song, it’s different !!
Thanks again !!!

Avinash ji
whether the title of the compilation is “Duets of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore kumar “,??
I had one cassette with that name, I don`t remember correctly, I have to search for the inlay card of the cassette this Sunday

Prakash ji ,
The Cassette details are as follows;
HMV- STHV – 43032 (SUPERIOR)
With Fond Remembrance
Kishore Kumar
First Death Anniversary Presentation
(Of 10/88, bought by me on 31.12.1988 at Kota, Rajasthan)
I try to upload the photo of inlay cards, but failed
The songs list follow separately,

Welcome Avinash ji,

Still so many more gems to explore. 🙂

hullo Sudhirji
thank you very much for this post. i will be truthful and say this is one song i have not heard ever. i have heard of the movie Gomti ke kinaare but not this song

I am glad I am able to introduce to you a song that you had not heard before. As always, lesser known and obscure films mean one or two unheard, obscure gems. 🙂

What a beautiful song this is! I am also surprised this wasn’t posted yet.

I also had (still have I think somewhere!) this song on a cassette. Am pretty sure it’s the HMV Kishore-Lata duets one that Prakashji is referring to. From what I vaguely remember, the cassette also had songs like “bahut door chale jaane hai” (Heera Panna), “deewana karke chhodoge” (Mere Jeevan Saathi), “chaahe raho door” (Do Chor) – all RDB, but also had non-RDB songs like “gore rang pe” (Roti). So it was not an RDB cassette, but a Kishore-Lata one. 🙂

Anyway, what a fantastic post, Sudhirji! You have an amazing way of conveying your thoughts – it’s so magical, it just draws me in. 🙂 Thank you for this wonderful post.

Thanks Raja ji,

For your kind appreciation. Always wish I had an extra four hours every day. 😉

Sudhirbhai,
On your last birthday I may have wished for you “Tum ko hamaari umar lag jaaye” but that did not include slip of mistake with older age, in the mentioning ‘duet by Kishore and ASHA’, instead of ‘Kishore and LATA’.

Dear Bharat ji,

गलतियाँ छोटे बच्चों से हो जाती हैं, प्यार से माफी दे दीजिये।

अब भूल सुधार दी है। आगे से मैं अपना कार्य और भी संभाल कर करूंगा।

🙂 🙂

सौहार्द एवं आदर सहित
सुधीर

The songs in the compilation I mentioned above are;
1. Aaj pehli taarikh hai
2. Milte hi Nazar aap mere
3. Haay haay haay ye nigaahen
4. Ham the wo thi
5. Piya main hoon patang tu dor
6. Thhandi hawaa ye chaandni
7. Mere Mehboob qayaamat hogi
8. Hawaaon pe likh do
9. Aake mil ja
10.Jeene ka din mar jaane ka mausam
11.Tum bhi chalo ham bhi chalen
12.Tum ho mere Dil ki dhadkan ///
(Thanks to my wife and my younger daughter who search this cassette in my collection and had sent me the photos of its inlay card. It is my ignorance that I could not upload the photo here)
Thanks,
