In one of my posts on the blog I had mentioned that the month of ‘June’ had many important days or anniversaries of film personalities (and the team members of this blog too).

Today 29th June is the ‘Remembrance Day’ of lyricist Gauhar Kanpuri. He passed away in the year 2002. He was active during the decade of seventies and thereafter till his death in 2002.

As per information available online he wrote lyrics for many songs of Hindi movies (more than one hundred fifty songs for around fifty-six movies). The detailed information about his filmography needs to be compiled. Also, I could not find much detailed information about his biography. (I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the information available on him).

He wrote the famous title song of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’, then songs for the movies like ‘Zakhmee-1975’, ‘Do Khiladi-1976’, ‘Phir Janam Lenge Ham-1977’, ‘Haiwaan-1977’, ‘Dada-1978’, ‘Dulha Bikta Hai-1982’, ‘Woh Jo Haseena-1983’, and many others, and including ‘Baazigar-1993’ of the nineties.

I may have missed some of his movies where the songs were popular, but then, as I said above, the list of his filmography needs to be compiled from authentic sources.

Today’s song is from the movie “Shikshaa-1978”. All songs for this movie were written by him. Music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

I have mentioned it in my earlier post here that there are many Bappi Lahiri compositions before early eighties or his ‘pre-Himmatwaala period which are very nice and needs to be discussed here. And in this case like in this movie ‘Shikshaa-1978’ we have the frequently heard ‘yaari hai phoolon se meri yaari hai’ sung by Bappi Lahiri and the gem ‘teri chhotisi ek bhool ne’ sung by Yesudas and other songs.

But, for today’s presentation I have selected this beautiful ‘Raam ‘Bhajan’ sung by Chandrani Mukherjee which I think was a lesser heard song from this movie. I was also not aware of this song till few weeks before and had not heard it earlier. And when I listened to it first time and second time and more it keeps growing on and I liked this song very much.

Gauhar Kanpuri has a long association with Bappi Lahiri and most of his works have compositions by Bappi Lahiri.

For this post I have compiled his list of movies with Bappi Lahiri in the decade of 1971 to 1980 where they had nine movies together;

As mentioned above music was composed by Bappi Lahiri (assisted by Bansari Lahiri, Anil & Arun).

Arti Mukherjee, Anuradha Paudwal, Bappi Lahiri, Chandrani Mukherjee, Shailendra Singh and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Lyrics

jehi vidhi raakhe raam

raaamaa
jehi vidhi raakhe raam
tehi vidhi rahiye
sukhon ko jo apnaa kahiye

tan ki ye doori hai majboori
tum to ho man ke saans

tan ki ye doori hai majboori
tum to ho man ke saans
swaami saanson ke har taar mein tum ho o
jeewan ke saathi tum hamaar
aanaa jaana
milnaa bichhadnaa

raamaa
jehi vidhi raakhe ae raam
tehi vidhi rahiye
sukhon ko jo apnaa kahiye
dukhon ko bhi sahiye
raamaa aa
jehi vidhi raakhe raam
tehi vidhi rahiye

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
—————————————-
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये
सुखों को जो अपना कहिये
दुखों को भी सहिये
रामा आ
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये

हम तो खिलौने माटी के है
निर्बल और कमज़ोर
ओ हो ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ
हम तो खिलौने माटी के है
निर्बल और कमज़ोर
हारे कोई माने या ना माने ए
उसके हाथों है सबकी डोर
होनी होके रहती है
कोई लाख मचाये शोर
रामा
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये
सुखों को जो अपना कहिये
दुखों को भी सहिये
रामा आ
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये

तन की ये दूरी है मजबूरी
तुम तो हो मन के साँस
ओ हो ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ
तन की ये दूरी है मजबूरी
तुम तो हो मन के साँस
स्वामी साँसों के हर तार में तुम हो ओ
जीवन के साथी तुम हमार
आना जाना
मिलना बिछड़ना
है दाता के हाथ
रामा
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये
सुखों को जो अपना कहिये
दुखों को भी सहिये
रामा आ
जेहि विधि राखे राम
तेहि विधि रहिये

राम सिया राम
राजा राम
जय जय राम
राम सिया राम
राजा राम
जय जय राम
राम सिया राम
राजा राम
जय जय राम
राम सिया राम
राजा राम
जय जय राम
राम सिया राम
राजा राम
जय जय राम

Hullo Avinashiji
Glad that you have contributed a post remembering Gauhar Kanpuri.
“Shiksha” is a movie that i have seen a few times. There is an anecdote relating to this movie which I shall share some other time.
I knew this song the minute I read the title of the post.
