Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Thodi Si Zindgani Raja Beete Na Jawaani  (Lakshmi Pooja) (1957) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt
Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani
raja beete na jawaani
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

teri thodi si zindgaani
pal pal beeti jaaye jawaani
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja
o raja
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
baat baat mein jeevan beete..ey..ey..ey
baat baat mein jeevan beete
kyon na tu sharmaat re
kyon na tu sharmaat re
oo oo hoye
aai hai rut mastaani
rim jhim barse roop ka paani
dekho saawan ke badra chhaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

nain baan hain
palken dori
nain baan hain palken dori
chitwan chhode baan re
chitwan chhode baan re
roop jawaani behta paani..ee..ee
roop jawaani behta paani
kyon karta abhiman re
kyon karta abhiman re
teri preet badi deewaani
preet laga prabhu se agyaani
jahaan dhokha na koi khaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी
राजा बीते ना जवानी
काहे मस्ती बहरे दिन गवाए रे
क्यों न नैनों से नैनां मिलाये रे

तेरी थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी
पल पल बीती जाये जवानी
काहे हीरे सा जनम गवाए रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे

रंग रँगीले राजा आजा
ओ राजा
रंग रँगीले राजा आजा
कर ले दिल की बात रे
रंग रँगीले राजा आजा
कर ले दिल की बात रे
बात बात में जीवन बीते॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए
बात बात में जीवन बीते
क्यों ना तू शरमात रे
क्यों ना तू शरमात रे
ओ ओ होए
आई है रुत मस्तानी
रिम झिम बरसे रूप का पानी
देखो सावन के बदरा छाए रे
क्यों न नैनों से नैनां मिलाये रे
काहे हीरे सा जनम गवाए रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे

नैन बान हैं
पलकें डोरी
नैन बान हैं पलकें डोरी
चितवन छोड़े बान रे
चितवन छोड़े बान रे
रूप जवानी बहता पानी॰॰ई॰॰ई॰॰ई
रूप जवानी बहता पानी
क्यों करता अभिमान रे
क्यों करता अभिमान रे
तेरी प्रीत बड़ी दीवानी
प्रीत लगा प्रभु से अज्ञानी
जहां धोखा ना कोई खाये रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे
काहे मस्ती भरे दिल गवाए रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे
काहे मस्ती भरे दिल गवाए रे
क्यों ना गोविंद के गुण गाये रे
