Mukesh and his Composers – 16
—————————————–

Today 27 August, we remember Mukesh on his remembrance day.

My last post on his birthday (22 July) was about his collaboration with Bappi Lahiri. We remain with the Lahiri family in this post too as we discuss the songs sung by Mukesh for Bappi Da’s father Aparesh Lahiri.

There are probably more songs sung by Aparesh Lahiri than the films that he composed music for.

Not much information is available on the net and I request knowledgeable readers to write more on his composing career. From the little information, I could gather in connection with this post, I came across a Bengali film named Subhash Chandra (1966). Needless to say it is based on the life and times of one of the most adored and respected freedom fighters of India, Subhash Chandra Bose.

The film in Bengali language seems to have been quite popular from what I could understand. Mukesh who has sung about a dozen Bengali songs has one song in this 1966 particular film too. The same film was made in Hindi and seems to have disappeared without much popularity. In the Hindi version too, Mukesh has sung the same song with the same tune as the Bengali version.
[Ed Note: As per the Geet Kosh, the Hindi version of this film was released in 1978.]

This is the solitary song sung by Mukesh for Aparesh Lahiri and hence there will be no table in this post. 🙂

Evidently, there has not been much research by me in this post and I apologize for the same. However the details were sketchy and since it was the only sung by Mukesh for the said composer, I did not dig much into the career of Aparesh Lahiri.

Much of these details were provided to me by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi and I am thankful to him.

Before I conclude the post, I would like to repeat what a few noted and eminent personalities have said about Mukesh.

Salil Chowdhury: Each word from his lips was a pearl. No one could sing the way Mukesh did, with the right diction, inflexion and intonation. His vocal timbre was out of this world.

Raj Kapoor: I am just a body, Mukesh is my soul.

Anil Biswas: I have lost my son. (on Mukesh’s passing away)

Needless to say, the above quotes speak volumes about Mukesh; the man with the golden voice, playback singer par excellence and the noble soul.

The voice of Mukesh will forever continue to resonate in the world of music.


Song – Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai (Subhash Chandra) (1978) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – Aparesh Lahiri

Lyrics

jai radheshya..aa..aam
ra..aa.aadheshya..aa..aam
jai radheshya..aa..aam

yahaan radha kund hai
shyam kund hai
aur hai goverdhan
madhur
madhur bansi baaje
yahi to vrindavan
o babu yahi to vrindavan

bansi baar baar boley
radha radha radha
radha..aa..aa
radha..aa..aa..aa..aa
bansi baar baar boley
radha radha radha
radha naam bansi ne suron mein hai bandha
tabhi to kanhaiya baney
raadhika raman
madhur madhur bansi baaje
yahi to vrindavan
o babu yahi to vrindavan

jagat ke dukh ki kaanha suney baani
usi baani ko sun ke bani radha rani
huye radhika ke prem se. . .
pooran. . .  mohan
madhur madhur bansi baaje
yahi to vrindavan
o babu yahi to vrindavan

yahan radha kund hai
shyam kund hai
aur hai goverdhan

jai radheshya..aa..aam. . .
ra..aa.aadheshya..aa..aam
jai radheshya..aa..aam. . .

Thanks for presenting this ‘rare’ song. The Bengali flavour is very much evident. I am reminded of ‘Sun mere bandhu’ & ‘kaise manaoon piyewa’ :))

I remember hearing this song so often on the radio. Thank you for the lovely post.

Sudhir ji,
Many thanks for helping me with both English and Hindi lyrics.

Shenoy ji and Ava ji,

Many Thanks for your comments.

I liked the Bengali version of the song more than the Hindi one. 🙂

Thank you Mahesh ji for this lovely song and post…!!!
Our tributes to Mukesh ji on his anniversary.

For your kind information one song from this movie ‘Subhash Chandra-1978’ sung by Rafi Saab has been posted on the blog on 23.01.2016.
Thanks for introducing this song by Mukesh ji from this movie.

Avinash ji,

Yes, I was aware of you opening the innings of the said film with Rafi saab’s song, but failed to mention in my write-up which I had sent in haste.
