The Indian general budget was presented day before yesterday on 1 february 2018. As happens on occasions like this, we had lots of discussions on this on social media. Here is one budget related observation that got forwarded on whatsapp:

Budget summary in three lines
-Lower class gets subsidy !
-Upper class gets Rebate !!
-Middle class only gets TV debates
🙂 🙂

It turns out that similar observations were made in a Hindi movie song as far back as in 1953. 🙂 The movie was “Daana Paani” (1953) which was directed by V M Vyas for Sunrise Pictures Production. The movie had Wasti, Meena Kumari, Shashi Kapoor Sr, Weera, Chhagan, Romeo, Radha Krishnan, Chitra etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

This song is sung by Rafi. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohan Junior.

This Mohan Junior was not Madan Mohan (as is erroneously mentioned at some places), but a Gujarati gentleman. He was called Mohan junior because there was another Mohan, viz Mohan Sharma, operating in those days. These details have been dug out by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia when we discussed another song from this movie during 2011.

Only the audio of this light hearted song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Koi ameer hai koi ghareeb hai (Daana Paani)(1953) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Mohan Junior

Lyrics

koi ameer hai
koi ghareeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada badnaseeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada badnaseeb hai

koi kehta raam tujhe
koi rahmaan
koi kehta raam tujhe
koi rahmaan
tujhe hai sabki chinta aa aa
o bhagwaan
tujhe hai sabki chinta aa aa
o bhagwaan
koi bhookha marey
to koi mauj karey ae
koi bhookha marey ae
to koi mauj karey ae ae
likha toone ye kaisa naseeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada basnaseeb hai

thhodi tankhwa
sar pe kunbe ka bhaar
thhodi tankhwa
sar pe kunbe ka bhaar
phate kapde jo dekhen
hanse rishtedaar
phate kapde jo dekhen
hanse rishtedaar
idhar apna ye haal
udhar bachchon ka pyaar
idhar apna ye haal
udhar bachchon ka pyaar
aisi zindagi to maut ke kareeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech bada badnaseeb hai
koi ameer hai
