The song found me, literally, and bowled me back into my childhood, into the radio listening days, and this seldom heard lullaby that simply takes you into a dreamland. One of those songs in which the words, the music and the rendition comes together a such a perfect blend that listening to it, the world disappears, and for a while it is just yourself with the song and the music.

I was actually planning another 1960s film for debut and was searching online for posted songs for a film that I had identified. Without any preamble or focused thought, I just stumbled into this song. Nothing else struck me, except the first five words, that resonated with a long dormant memory somewhere deep in time. And without a notice, this song was upon me.

The film is lost and forgotten. I myself have not seen it. Actually when I heard this song originally, I had no clue as to the film or other details. It is only today that this connection is made. The film is ‘Daak Bangla’ from 1974. A film that has been produced and directed by Girish Ranjan. This is one of the new wave cinema that was starting out in the early to mid 1970s. The star cast is listed as Simi Garewal, Shubhendu Chatterjee, Nitin Sethi, Geeta Siddharth, Bhagwan Sahu, Ramesh, Lalita Kumari, Rasheeda Thakur, Satyabhan Sinha, Gunaji, Shriniwas Tripathi, Master Neelabh Kaul, Master Prem, Baby Aparna Mudgal, Prabhat Kumar, and Iftekhar.

The film has just two songs, both come from the pen of Anjaan. This song being a lullaby, the other song, from the words, seems like a folk song, in the voice of the same singer. Music is by Shyam Saagar. When I first read this name, I thought I am familiar with this music director. Our dear Bharat ji has posted a few non-film songs of Suman Kalyanpur, composed by him. But when I went in to check, it turns out that the music director whose song are posted by Bharat Bhai, his name is Shyam Sharma. So the music director of this wonderful soothing lullaby makes his debut on our blog also. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find Shyam Saagar’s name appear in a few more films in the 1970s.

The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur. When I first located this song, I was tempted to hold back this song for her birthday, but on checking the anniversaries list, I find that we have just passed her birthday on 28th Jan. And so I decided not to wait for 2019 for this wonderful song to come board.

The song starts off as a lullaby, and then it also transforms into a song of regretful past. A lonely poignancy takes over the emotions as the song proceeds. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add some more information, if available, about the film story, and this song.

The recording is a little skippy, but I am able to piece together all words, checking back and forth across the lines that get repeated. However, there is one line, indicated by ((?? ?? ?? ??)) in the lyrics, which I have not been able to decipher. It is three or four words, and I could not make them out. I request other readers and listeners to please help decipher this line.

A wonderful heart warming song, sung so smoothly. It seems to flow over the senses like slow moving honey. I have simply fallen in love with this song all over again. 🙂

[Ed Note: – This is the second movie of Shyam Saagar in the blog. He has already appeared in the blog with a song from the film ‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ (1978).]

Song – Palak Hindole Chadhi Re Nindiya  (Daak Bangla) (1974) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Shyam Saagar

Lyrics

palak hindolay
chadhi re nindiya
palak hindolay chadhi re nindiya
alsaaye nain
hmm hmm
tujh ko sulaaye
jug jug jaagi ye
ansoyi rain
hmm hmm
ansoyi rain
palak hindolay chadhi re nindiya
alsaaye nain
hmmmm

aakaash ganga ki
sapneeli lehron pe
jhilmil sitaaron waali naao
aayegi aake tujhe
sang le ke jaayegi re
sat range sapnon ke dwaar
o mere apne
jhoothe hain sapne
sapna jo roothe
nindiya jo toote
bheegen na nain
bheegen na nain
tujh ko sulaaye
jug jug jaagi ye
ansoyi rain
ansoyi rain
palak hindolay chadhi re nindiya
alsaaye nain
hmmmm
tujh ko sulaaye
jug jug jaagi ye
ansoyi rain
hmm hmm
ansoyi rain

kaanton ke van mein
ik raah bhooli
kaanton ke van mein
ik raah bhooli
paagal hawaa si zindagi
saagar se bichhdi
maruthal mein khoyi
pyaasi nadi main pyaar ki
raahon mein khoye
sapnon ke mele
sulge dhuaan sa
ye mann akele
paaye na chain
paaye na. . .

———————————————————
पलक हिंडोले
चढ़ी रे नींदिया
पलक हिंडोले चढ़ी रे नींदिया
अलसाए नैन
हम्म हम्म
तुझको सुलाये
जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
हम्म हम्म
अनसोई रैन
पालक हिंडोले चढ़ी रे नींदिया
अलसाए नैन
हम्मम्म

आकाश गंगा की
सपनीली लहरों पे
झिलमिल सितारों वाली नाव
आएगी आके तुझे
संग लेके जाएगी रे
सतरंगे सपनों के द्वार
ओ मेरे अपने
झूठे हैं सपने
सपना जो रूठे
निंदिया जो टूटे
भीगें ना नैन
भीगें ना नैन
तुझको सुलाये
जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
अनसोई रैन
पलक हिंडोले चढ़ी रे नींदिया
अलसाए नैन
हम्मम्म
तुझको सुलाये
जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
हम्म हम्म
अनसोई रैन

काँटों के वन में
इक राह भूली
काँटों के वन में
इक राह भूली
पागल हवा सी ज़िंदगी
सागर से बिछड़ी
मरुथल में खोई
प्यासी नदी मैं प्यार की
राहों में खोये
सपनों के मेले
सुलगे धुआँ सा
ये मन अकेले
पाये ना चैन
पाये ना ॰ ॰ ॰

Sudhirji,
Sureeli Suman never fails to captivate!
??? – I hear as ‘bheege na nain’ .

Thanks Pratap ji,

Your suggestions sounds very correct. I have updated the lyrics accordingly.

Thanks Sudhir Sir for covering this finest and rarest melodious lullaby from obscure movie Dak Bangla (1974). A master piece among Suman Kalyanpur gems. Here I am suggesting minor corrections in the first antara as

aakaash ganga ki
sapaneelee lehron pe
jhilmil sitaaron waali naao
aayegi aake tujhe
sang le ke jaayegi re
sat range sapnon ke dwaar
o mere apne
jhoothe hain sapne
sapna jo roothe
“nindiya” jo toote
bheegen na nain
bheegen na nain

The missing word “nindiya” is clearly audible in the song available in my personal collection.

Dear Anekant ji,

Thanks for the updates/corrections to the lyrics. I have made the corrections.

Yes, this sure is a wonderful gem that has now become rare and obscure.

Rgds
Sudhir
