Nargis was “Miss India”(1957) in January 1957 and nine month later she was “Mother India” (1957) in october 1957. 🙂 I wondered what happened to Mrs India that should have logically followed in between. 🙂

The movie “Miss India”(1957) as well as its songs are not all that well known vis a vis “Mother India”(1957), though they were good in their own way. There were ten songs in “Miss India”(1957) which were penned by Rajinder Krishan and composed by S D Burman. Trivia buffs may find it interesting to note that Rajinder Krishan and S D Burman collaborated together in only five movies, viz. “Pyaar”(1950), “Bahaar”(1951), “Ek Nazar”(1951), “Saza”(1951) and “Miss India”(1957).

Seven songs from “Miss India”(1957) have been covered in the blog.

Here is the eighth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus.

The song is picturised as a rail song. A glum Nargis is shown seated in her seat going to her destination, while this beggar song is sung by an old beggar, accompanied by a few young kids singing in chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncer.

It is after quite a long while that a train song, and also a beggar train song gets discussed in the blog.

There is an interesting trivia associated with this song. This song is the only Manna Dey solo created by the lyricist-Music director team of Rajinder Krishan and S D Burman.


Song-Thokar naseeb ki jo khaa kar bhi muskuraaye (Miss India)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye
ik roz badh ke manzil
ik roz badh ke manzil
usko galey lagaaye ae
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye

ye ranj ye museebat
kissa hai zindagi ka
ye ranj ye museebat
kissa hai zindagi ka
gham ko khushi banaana
hai kaam aadmi ka
gham ko khushi banaana
hai kaam aadmi ka

insaan kya jo gham se
insaan kya jo gham se
ghabraa ke baith jaaye ae ae
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye

ik roz badh ke manzil
ik roz badh ke manzil
usko galey lagaaye ae
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye

har raat ki subah hai
har shaam ka sawera
har raat ki subah hai
har shaam ka sawera
rukna na raaste mein
manzil hai tera dera
rukna na raaste mein
manzil hai tera dera

har ik nayi museebat
har ik nayi museebat
himmat teri badhaaye ae
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye

ik roz badh ke manzil
ik roz badh ke manzil
usko galey lagaaye ae
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye
thokar naseeb ki jo o o
khaa kar bhi muskuraaye
