ना ये चाँद होगा

ना तारे रहेंगे
मगर हम हमेशा तुम्हारे रहेंगे

A promise of a voice, that continues to remind, of a feeling, of a little tangy flavored honey, slipping down the taste buds in the rear of the tongue. A voice that is sweet, that is humble. It may haunt you, but it will never come to you as an onslsught; it surely will over power your heart, but more in the manner of a polite request saying “Naa Jaao Sainyaan Chhuda Ke Bainyaan. . .”.

A personality that was more about inward expressions. Time was in the early sixties, as her singing assignments were dwindling, in a chance phone conversation with OP Nayyar, the simple complaint she aired to him was – “Aap to hum ko bhool gaye”. The reference of course was to the many hits she had sung for him, for the duration of a short stint, from 1952 to 1958. And after delivering the super hit “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” (‘Howrah Bridge”) in 1958, there is really very little, actually nothing, that OPN offered her to sing. It is quite a wonder that OPN went from strength to strength starting with ‘Aasmaan’ in 1952, and working through ‘Baaz’ (1953), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Mr And Mrs 55’ (1955), ‘CID’, ‘Chhoo Mantar’, and ‘Mr Lambu’ in 1956, ‘Johnny Walker’ and ‘Ustad’ in 1957, and then ‘Howrah Bridge’, ’12 O’Clock’, ‘Mujrim’ and ‘Mr Qartoon MA’ in 1958. Thereafter, no more OP Nayyar songs for her. In any case, as we progress from 1952 to 1958, there is a noticeable increment in Asha Bhosle’s share of singing for OPN.

In a private conversation many years later, OPN did express his regrets that he completely cut off Geeta from his portfolio. With such dwindling fortunes, it is still not a wonder that she was still able to clock close to 1300 songs in Hindi films, from 1946 to 1971, much better than many of her contemporaries. That was the magnetism in her voice.

Today, we bring on board, the 800th song of this nightingale. The film is ‘Badnaam’ from 1952. The lyrics are by Shailendra and music is by Basant Prakash. The melancholia that she has the ability to generate, sometimes defies the thought that she is also able to sing the likes of “Mera Naam Chin ChinChu”. Maybe the grand success of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gaya. . .” from ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) was a portend of the path of destiny she was to follow.

This song also, tells of the sadness of a broken heart, as the clouds of gloom are gathering in the mind’s sky. And the love is itself in tears – “प्यार रोने लगा”. It was not just an expression tutored by the music director, to sing it in a particular manner. It was the reality of her life that she lived – all the way to her passing away in 1972.

It was not just the season of rains. It was her whole life.

Song – Ghir Aayi Hai Ghor Ghata  (Badnaam) (1952) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Basant Prakash

Lyrics

ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

tha kya pata yun badal jaayega aasmaan
yun bante bante ujad jaayega aashiaan
pahunchi saahil pe jab meri naiyya
gham dubone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

kaisi ye mushkil jo sochun wo kar na sakoon
haaye
main aaj marna bhi chaahun to mar na sakoon
yun mere saamne mere dil ka
khoon honay laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

———————————————————
घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

था क्या पता यूं बादल जाएगा आसमाँ
यूं बनते बनते उजाड़ जाएगे आशियाँ
पहुंची साहिल पे जब मेरी नैया
ग़म डुबोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

कैसी ये मुश्किल जो सोचूँ वो कर ना सकूँ
मैं आज मारना भी चाहूँ तो मर ना सकूँ
यूं मेरे सामने मेरे दिल का
खून होने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
