Mukesh and his Composers – 14
——————————————–

As we celebrate seven decades of freedom, patriotic songs continue to eulogize the glories of our nation. These songs have always had a special place in the hearts of all Indians. During the good old days of DD, many such songs were played throughout the day on such occasions. One of the very common songs that was invariably played was the Mukesh number “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten” from the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). Coming from the baton of Usha Khanna in her second film as a composer, the song was sung with much gusto by Mukesh. The other famous song by Mukesh in this genre is obviously the title song from ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960).

However a lesser known fact is that Mukesh sang nearly 20 film and non-film patriotic songs. The very first duet that Mukesh sang with Lata Mangeshkar – “Ab Darne Ki Koi Baat Nahin Hai” (from ‘Majboor’, 1948) as well as GeetaDutt – “Watan Ki Maati Haath Mein Le Kar” (from ‘Gaon’, 1947), are both patriotic songs.

Amongst his other patriotic songs, Atulji posted “Na Koi Raha Hai Na Koi Rahege” (from ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’, 1965) a few weeks back.

The iconic song “Mera Rang De Basanti Chola” has been sung by many singers at different times. Mukesh too is involved in one of the versions from the film Shaheed (1965) which he sings along with Mahendra Kapoor, and Rajendra Mehta.

There are about a dozen more songs of Mukesh in the patriotic category and quite a few of them are yet to be posted. Since the list may not be complete and also as the other songs are not too well known, I will desist myself from making a list of all his patriotic songs at this stage.

However, as a regular feature in this series, a tabular column is always in order. Following is the list of the songs composed by Ram Ganguly, and sung by Mukesh.

S.No Name of Song Movie
(Year of release)
Co singer
(if any)
Lyricist
1 Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji Aag (1948) Shamshad Begum Majrooh Sultanpuri
2 Rab mere araj sun meri Aag (1948) Sailesh Mukherji Saraswati Kumar Deepak
3 Zinda hoon is tarah Aag (1948) Behzad Lucknowi
4 Aazad ho gaya Jalsa (1948) Ramesh Gupta

Aag (1948). As we are all well aware, this was the directorial debut of Raj Kapoor and Ram Ganguly had scored the music for the film. Some misunderstanding between the director and the composer resulted in a phenomenon called Shanker-Jaikishen. Rest as they say, is history.

Personally, for me, the music of ‘Aag’ is altogether on a different platform. There is something captivating in the compositions. I often listen to the songs from this movie, each time savouring the music.

The career of Ram Ganguly after ‘Aag’ was not a smooth ride. There were hardly any films that were musically successful. I was wondering if any of our more knowledgeable contributors have written a post on the life and career of the composer. And as expected, I found this post, aptly written by one of the most suitable persons to do so.

The two most famous songs of Ram Ganguly after his ‘Aag’ score are probably from ‘Gawaiyya’ (1954). The songs Aise Toote Taar Ke Mere Geet Adhoore Reh Gaye and Teri Yaad Ka Deepak Jaltaa Hai, once again bring to mind the velvet voiced memories of Talat Mehmood.

Coming to this post and the song in particular, it is a recently discovered song as it is not listed in Mukesh Geet Kosh. It is listed in the main Hindi Film Geet Kosh, but at the time of publication of volume 2 of HFGK, the detailed information of this song was not available. A patriotic song sung by Mukesh along with chorus, the song was recorded for ‘Jalsa’ (1948). From the Geet Kosh listings, it seems that a song with the same or a similar title is also included in the film ‘Desh Sewa’, also from 1948. I request for more clarifications and details about this re-use of the song by more knowledgeable readers.

It seems Ram Ganguly too did not use the voice of Mukesh in any of his films after ‘Jalsa’. The tally stands at 04 as listed above. There are some 18 songs in Jalsa (1948). One song has already been represented on the blog. It will be nothing short of a miracle if any of the remaining songs from Jalsa have the voice of Mukesh as he was one of the most sought-after playback singers during the time.

I thank Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for helping me with confirming with the short list of all Mukesh songs under Ram Ganguly.

Before, I conclude the post; I just want to inform readers that the next post will be in my other series, with another recently discovered song, the hint as regards to the co-singer being “what will happen now”.

I take this opportunity to wish one and all, a very happy independence day.

Jai Hind.

Song – Azaad Ho Gaya Hai Hindostaan Hamaara  (Jalsa) (1948) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Ramesh Gupta, MD – Ram Ganguly
Chorus

Lyrics
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara
dekho farak raha hai
pyaara nishaan hamaara
dekho farak raha hai
pyaara nishaan hamaara

muddat ke baad hum ye
khushiyaan manaa rahe hain
muddat ke baad hum ye
diye jalaa rahe hain
muddat ke baad goonja
hai ye bulund naara
muddat ke baad goonja
hai ye bulund naara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara

bharat hai runee unka
jo hain shaheed sachche
balidaan de gaye jo
boodhe jawaan bachche
un hi ke khoon se rangeen
hai ye chaman hamaara
un hi ke khoon se rangeen
hai ye chaman hamaara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara

ab ek hi khwaaish hai
Netaji laut aayen
ab ek hi khwaaish hai
Netaji laut aayen
nav rashtra ke tirange
jhande ko sar jhukaayen
jhande ko sar jhukaayen
phir se buland kar den
Jai Hind ka wo naara
phir se buland kar den
Jai Hind ka wo naara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara

bharat mein prem jyoti
phir se prabhu jaga de
phir se prabhu jaga de
toote huye dilon ko
phir ek tu banaa de
phir ek tu banaa de
mujhko hai mera bharat
ye swarg se bhi pyaara
mujhko hai mera bharat
ye swarg se bhi pyaara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara
azaad ho gaya hai
hindostaan hamaara

आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा
देखो फ़रक रहा है
प्यारा निशां हमारा
देखो फ़रक रहा है
प्यारा निशां हमारा

मुद्दत के बाद हम ये
खुशियां मना रहे हैं
मुद्दत के बाद हम ये
दिये जला रहे हैं
मुद्दत के बाद गूँजा
है ये बुलंद नारा
मुद्दत के बाद गूँजा
है ये बुलंद नारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा

भारत है ऋणी उनका
जो हैं शहीद सच्चे
बलिदान दे गए जो
बूढ़े जवान बच्चे
उन हि के खूँ से रंगीं
है ये चमन हमारा
उन हि के खूँ से रंगीं
है ये चमन हमारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा

अब एक ही ख़्वाहिश है
नेता जी लौट आयें
अब एक ही ख़्वाहिश है
नेता जी लौट आयें
नव राष्ट्र के तिरंगे
झंडे को सर झुकाएँ
झंडे को सर झुकाएँ
फिर से बुलंद कर दें
जय हिन्द का वो नारा
फिर से बुलंद कर दें
जय हिन्द का वो नारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा

भारत में प्रेम ज्योति
फिर से प्रभु जगा दे
फिर से प्रभु जगा दे
टूटे हुये दिलों को
फिर एक तू बना दे
फिर एक तू बना दे
मुझको है मेरा भारत
ये स्वर्ग से भी प्यारा
मुझको है मेरा भारत
ये स्वर्ग से भी प्यारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा
आज़ाद हो गया है
हिंदोस्तां हमारा
