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

O mora jiya ghabraaye tere chhote se gaaon mein

“Bijli”(1950) was directed by Sushil Sahu for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Ramesh Gupta, Sitara, Vilas Mohbe, Paro, Badri Prasd, Sushir Sahu, Amirbai Karnataki, Satya Narayan, Narbada Shankar, C L Shah, Kanta, Kazmi etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (10 august 2017) is the 67th remembrance day of Khemchand Prakash ( 12 december 1907- 10 august 1950). On this occasion, here is a song from “Bijli”(1950).

This song is sung by two female singers. HFKG mentions them as Geeta Roy and Paro, whereas the uploader of the song mentions them as Shamshad Begam and Paro. But I think that the voices in the song are of two singers who are not Geeta Roy (alater Dutt), Shamshad Begam or Paro devi, three singers whose voices are quite distinctive and different from the voices in the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voices that sound familiar.

PS-Now Sudhir Jee has fished out a clearer version of this song from his collection. There the voices are very clear and they unmistakably belong to Paro and Geeta Roy. I thank Sudhir Jee for helping clarify matters.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This is and lovely song which sounds like a stage performance song where a city slicker lady complains that she is uncomfortable in the village of her beue and she asks him to take her to Bombay. Very cute and justifiable feelings that most people can readily identify with. I too used to groan like this when I found myself going to my native place (a village) during my younger days. 🙂


Song-O mora jiya ghabraaye tere chhote se gaaon mein(Bijli)(1950) Singers-Paro Devi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

mora jiya ghabraaye
uf mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de
na na na na na na
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

tere is chhote se gaanv mein
na motor na rail
ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi mein
kaatoon jeewan jail
balam is jail se chhuda de
balam is jail se chhuda de
dhuaan gaadi pe baitha de
chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk pahuncha de
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

na na na
are wahaan dhaan par ration gori
kapdon par control
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
paani bikta mol
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
chup chhail chhabeele
tera bhola jiya bharma den
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

arre ae
kya likhi karam ki rekha aa
haaye
ab tak na saneema dekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
kaisa thha saawan aaya re
kaisi thhi chandralekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
o mere laadle balam
tohe raam ki kasam
chaupaati ki chaat khila de
haaye mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi meri
jamuna jee ke kinaare
chaand aur sooraj aur ye sitaare
jiske aage bambai tera
pada pada jhak maare
ho gori ye chaandni raaten
aur pyaar ki baaten
zara ghoonghat ki oat muska de
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

Atul ji,

mp3 clip of the song uploaded by Giridharilal Vishwakarma on Surjit Singh’s Website gives the names of the singer as ‘geeta – paro’.
http://www.geetadutt.com also gives the same names in the list of songs sung by Geeta Dutt.

I think, voices of singers got distorted while converting the song from 78 rpm to mp3 clip due to fault in speed of turntable used for converting the song to mp3. It is the same story about others two songs from this film sung by Shamshad Begum where it is difficult to recognise her voice in mp3 clip uploaded by Giridharilal Vishwakarma.

Your observations are quite accurate, as proved by Sudhir Jee, who located a clearer version of this song from his collection. Listening to this version, I can clearly make out the voices of Paro devi and Geeta Dutt. I have made necessary changes in the writeup.
