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

Hum Jawaan Tum Jawaan, Husn O Ishq Bhi Jawaan

Today is a special day for Atulites and each one of us on our Whatsapp Group knows that it is Blog’s 9th anniversary. The Blog’s anniversary is the mother of all other celebrations connected with it. Otherwise how would it be possible to celebrate century songs, artists’ centuries, artists’ birth anniversaries, the remembrance days, other special occasions etc without the existence of the Blog?

Nine years ago – July 19, 2008, the first song “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Lee” appeared on the Blog and Atul ji’s aspiration became a reality. As I understand from the blog posts, in this project, he got encouragement and support from another Hindi film music lover, Raja ji. In any start-up blogging, the initial support from the like-minded persons is very crucial for the success of the blog. As the Blog continued its run, many like-minded persons joined the musical bandwagon.

I joined the Blog sometime in the last week of July 2011 by fluke. I was searching for details of a song on the Google which directed me to the Blog. On the same day, I went through many songs and comments thereon. I felt that this Blog was the place where I could get all relevant and authentic information about the songs at one place. The facility of listening to the song simultaneously with lyrics interested me. I think, in the same month, lyrics in different colours for different singers were introduced for easy identification of singers.

Within a few months of joining the Blog, I got to know of the contributions made by the regulars to the Blog. Among them, Sudhir ji and Arun ji were making significant contributions in enhancing the quality and the reputation of the Blog. They continue to do so. Those days, Sudhir ji was covering in his write-ups mostly the songs of KL Saigal. I used to feel awesome of his detailed analysis of songs, especially of ghazals with English translations.
I was amazed by some of the rare information Arun ji, was churning out regularly on the old Hindi films, of artists and sometime also anecdotes from his kitty (read Note Book) which he had meticulously preserved since his younger days. His knowledge about the forgotten artists of yore was inspiration in developing my interest in such artists. In addition, he was also unwittingly assisting Atul ji, in what is called in media jargon, ‘content audit’ of the blog posts – especially of the old film songs.

After my retirement from the service in June 2009, my relatives and friends used to ask me as to how I am going to spend my time in the post-retirement period. I would reply them by saying that travelling and trekking were my hobbies and I would plan my travels and treks accordingly to keep myself busy. Now, when they ask the same question, I reply them by saying that I have been keeping myself busy in doing some research on old films, their songs and the artists. A bewildered look from them gives me the enough indications that it is beyond their comprehensions that such an activity can keep a person busy on a continuous basis. It was mainly because of my association with the Blog that I have kept myself as busy as I was during my employment.

As we celebrate the 9th anniversary of the Blog today, it is a matter of great satisfaction that there are more like-minded regulars on the Blog today than say 5 years back. I had said earlier on some other occasion and I will repeat that the bandwagons will not move in a desired speed with safety unless it is hauled by a powerful and well maintained locomotive. And that locomotive for the Blog is none other than Atul ji.

Whenever I go through the mind blowing statistical data, most of which are manually updated, I feel that the kind of the work load which Atul ji has been handling on a day-to-day basis for a musical blog has no parallel. While the songs get added on the Blog on arithmetical basis, the work relating to the statistical updating increases in geometrical proportion. As more and more songs get added to the Blog, I am afraid, Atul ji may have to devote more time to keep the Blog up to date than the time required for posting the songs. Hopefully, some alternative system would be developed to automatically update the data with all possible combinations once the song is posted on the Blog.

Congratulations Atul ji and his bandwagons on the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the Blog. I wish you many wonderful years to come for achieving more milestones for the Blog.

On the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the Blog, I have chosen a romantic non-film song ‘Hum Jawaan Tum Jawaan’ (1940s) sung by ‘Bombay Saigal’, Surendra on the words of Pandit Indra. The name of the music director is not known. The orchestration of the song gives me an impression that the music arranger associated with the composition of this song could be one from Goa.

When I first heard this song a year ago, I remembered the song “Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Khushi” from ‘Alibaba’ (1940). There is some similarity in Surendra’s style of singing in both the songs which have western shades of music.
I was not aware that Surendra had sung many non-filmy songs in his early filmy career. As far as know, none of his non-fimly songs were available on YT until last year when I uploaded his 4 NFSs on YT out of around 20 available on Prof. Surjit Singh’s website.

The music composition for the song under discussion is the reminiscence of the influence of soft classical music of Western countries on Indian music scenes in the 1940s. Pankaj Mullick has sung a song “Praan Chaahe Nain Na Chaahe“(1940) based on Rabindranath Tagaore’s Bangla composition influenced by waltz music of the west. Even, Naushad, a bhakt of purity in Hindi film music, could not avoid waltz’s influence in “Ta Ra Ri Aa Ra Ri” in ‘Daastaan’ (1950).

With the song under discussion, Surendra makes a debut on the Non-Film Song’s segment of the Blog.


Song – Hum Jawaan Tum Jawaan, Husn Ishq Bhi Jawaan (Surendra NFS) (1940s) Singer – Surendra, Lyrics – Pt Indra, MD – [Unattributed]

Lyrics

hum jawaan tum jawaan
husn o ishq bhi jawaan
hosh kehta hum naadaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan

jab raaton ko chhaaye andheraa
apni duniya mein saveraa
jab raaton ko chhaaye andheraa
apni duniya mein saveraa
yaad mein unke dil kaa machalnaa
yaad mein unke dil kaa machalnaa
girnaa sambhalnaa uchalnaa
girnaa sambhalnaa uchalnaa
hum jawaan tum jawaan
husn o ishq bhi jawaan
hosh kehta hum naadaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan

ik halki si tees
ik meethi kasak
ik halki si tees
ik meethi kasak
apne jeene ke ye saamaan
apne jeene ke ye saamaan
ik tirchhi nazar
ik neechi nazar
ik tirchhi nazar
ik neechi nazar
hum to hotey hain un pe qurbaan
hum to hotey hain un pe qurbaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan
husn ishq bhi jawaan
hosh kehta hum naadaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan

chhoti raaten laakhon baaten
chhoti raaten laakhon baaten
laakhon hain armaan
laakhon hain armaan
dil kehta aaraam jawaani
dil kehta aaraam jawaani
hum kehten toofaan
dil kehta aaram jawaani
hum kehten toofaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan
husn ishq bhi jawaan
hosh kehta hum naadaan
hum jawaan tum jawaan

हम जवां तुम जवां
हुस्न ओ इश्क़ भी जवां
होश कहता हम नादान
हम जवां तुम जवां

जब रातों को छाए अंधेरा
अपनी दुनिया में सवेरा
जब रातों को छाए अंधेरा
अपनी दुनिया में सवेरा
याद में उनकी दिल का मचलना
याद में उनकी दिल का मचलना
गिरना संभलना उछलना
गिरना संभलना उछलना
हम जवां तुम जवां
हुस्न ओ इश्क़ भी जवां
होश कहता हम नादान
हम जवां तुम जवां

इक हल्की सी टीस
इक मीठी कसक
इक हल्की सी टीस
इक मीठी कसक
अपने जीने के ये सामान
अपने जीने के ये सामान
इक तिरछी नज़र
इक नीची नज़र
इक तिरछी नज़र
इक नीची नज़र
हम तो होते हैं उन पे कुर्बान
हम तो होते हैं उन पे कुर्बान
हम जवां तुम जवां
हुस्न ओ इश्क़ भी जवां
होश कहता हम नादान
हम जवां तुम जवां

छोटी रातें लाखों बातें
छोटी रातें लाखों बातें
लाखों हैं अरमान
लाखों हैं अरमान
दिल कहता आराम जवानी
दिल कहता आराम जवानी
हम कहते तूफान
दिल कहता आराम जवानी
हम कहते तूफान
हम जवां तुम जवां
हुस्न ओ इश्क़ भी जवां
होश कहता हम नादान
हम जवां तुम जवां

Dear Sadanand ji,

What a fresh new morning it is feeling today. 🙂

Thanks for this wonderful NFS, so interestingly tuned by the music director whose name we need to search.

“Hum Jawaan, Tum Jawaan”
State of affairs with all the regulars of this bandwagon – always ‘जवां’, always young.

Cheers and regards
Sudhir

Good song in typical Surendra style.
Come on, earn your Doctorate by searching the MD for this song.

What a wonderful post this is, Sadanandji.
It is nice to read about how an Atulite came across the blog, what drew him/her to it – and keeps drawing him/her to it. You are totally right in that Sudhirji and Arunji have made very significant contributions in making the blog what it is today – am sure Atul will heartily agree.
I would also like to add though that you’ve been very modest in not mentioning your own contribution. It has been immense too – your posts, with research koot-koot ke bhara hua, are always very enlightening. Am sure the blog is much enriched by them.
Actually everyone in his/her own way is contributing. e.g. Prakashchandraji with renewing non-working videos, people contributing lyrics. It’s just a team effort of wagons, with Atul as the locomotive hauling it, like you wonderfully put it. 🙂
