Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15057

Yesterday (2 june 2019) was Sunday. I for some reason thought that there was lots of time available with me and so I would do things that I had not done for ages. Sunday morning is the day when DD national presents ‘Rangoli’.

I used to be a regular watcher of this programme when I was based at Bilaspur. That was four to seven years ago. I have rarely watched this programme since.

On this ‘Rangoli’ programme on 2 june 2019, This presenter announced that the programme would have songs dealing with nature. I found that most songs were from 1990s from movies such as ‘Roja’ etc, with a couple of songs from 1960s. There was no value addition from the anchor on these songs while discussing the songs. May be I was expecting her too keep us enthralled like an Ameen Sayani or Nalin Shah. But then those days and those knowledgeable presenter have become rare to find. We should at least be thankful that Vividh Bharti still has good presenters with knowledge as well as passion for old songs.

I then thought that instead of finding fault in the presentation of ‘Rangoli’, I should look in the mirror. Even my articles in the blog has become routine. It is time to bring some zing and enthusiasm in my writeups.

Just as the ‘Rangoli’ programme covered mainly songs from 1990s, I too noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s. Somehow those songs of 1990s did not bring the same “kuchh kuchh hota hai” feeling in me. I decided to randomly pick a song from 1960s. This random picking gave me a song from ‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963).

‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963) was directed by Suraj Prakash for Asiatic Arts Productions Bombay. This movie had Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Johny Walker, Aashish Kumar, Shammi, Mumtaz Begam, Mukri, Nasreen, Tuntun, Sarita Devi, Laxmi, Leela Mishra, Chaman Puri, Ravikant, Mansaram, Bhalla etc in it.

The movie has six songs in it. Three of the most popular songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

The song under discussion, that I picked by lottery, is one that I had never heard before. But when I listened to this song, I quickly realised that my hunch about the difference in quality of songs between golden era songs and songs of 1990s was not misplaced. This forgotten and less heard song from 1960s sounded so sweet and lovely. And I had never heard this song before !

This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

It was one of the earlier songs penned by Anand Bakshi in his career. This song came in the era when classy lyrics were being written by several established lyricists. So Anand Bakshi, in a bid to make his mark among such talented lyricists came up with this gem of a song. It is ironic that many of his lesser quality songs are better known than this song.

Even the music director duo were relatively new on the scene. And in this song they have tried to create a Salil Chaudhary like effect. The song and its picturisation is reminiscent of Salil Chaudhary compositions of those years.

The song is picturised on Mala Sinha.

Yesterday (2 June 2019) gave me a feeling that I failed to utilise it to the full. Nevertheless, I noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s, that I will discuss next.


Song-Sambhal to le dil deewaana (Phool Bane Angaarey)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

dil deewaana
zara
thehar
jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana aa
sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

main guzri umr ko waapas zara pukaar to loon
main apne aap ko thhoda bahut sanwaar to loon
libaas gham ka nigaahon se main utaar to loon
samaa to ho le suhaana zara thahar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

khushi bhi itni achaanak main seh na paaungi
main apne aap mein bas aaj reh na paaungi
jo tum se kehna hai mujhko
wo keh na paaungi
main yaad kar loon fasaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

sataane waale
tumhen main bhi thhoda tadpaaun
talaash karte phiro tum mujhe
main chhup jaaun
hazaar kehne pe bhi saamne na main aaun
banaa loon koi bahaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

दिल दीवाना
ज़रा
ठहर
जाना

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

मैं गुज़री उम्र को वापस ज़रा पुकार तो लूँ
मैं अपने आप को थोड़ा बहुत संवार तो लूँ
लिबास ग़म का निगाहों से मैं उतार तो लूँ
समा तो हो ले सुहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

खुशी भी इतनी अचानक मैं सह ना पाऊँगी
मन अपने आप में बस आज रह ना पाऊँगी
जो तुमसे कहना है मुझको
वो कह ना पाऊँगी
मैं याद कर लूँ फसाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

सताने वाले तुम्हें भी थोड़ा तड़पाऊँ
तलाश करते फिरो तुम मुझे
मैं छुप जाऊँ
हज़ार कहने पे भी सामने ना मैं आऊँ
बना लूँ कोई बाहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

Atul ji,

This song takes me back to the earlier years of the blog, when such beautiful, heartwarming and uplifting melodies were almost a daily affair.

Such a lovely reminder, thanks so much for bringing it on.

Yes, it is a lovely archetypical golden era song. Post golden era songs just pale in comparison, no matter how hard we try to like them.
