Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 73

On this day ten years ago viz on 8 September 2010, six songs from six movies were covered, as was the norm those days.

Here are the details of the six songs:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Aawaaz de kahaan hai duniyaa meri jawaan hai Anmol Ghadi-1946 All songs covered
Rahiye ab aisi jagah chal kar jahaan koi na ho Mirza Ghalib-1954 All songs covered
Nazren uthaa ke zaraa dekh le Chacha Zindabad-1959 All songs covered

Except one movie, all other five movies, that got represented that day have been YIPPEED by now.

That leaves us with just “Ghoonghat”(1960) as the sole movie eligible for today’s blog Ten year challenge.

As many as six songs of “Ghoonghat”(1960) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Haay re insaan ki majbooriyaan 13.09.2010
Ye zindagi ka mausam aur ye samaa suhaanaa 24.03.2012

Here is a song from “Ghoonghat”(1960). This song is sung by Lata. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised on Bina Rai who is seen singing this bhajan in front of an idol of Lord Krishn. Though I consider my Hindi knowledge to be quite decent, I am stumped by this word “pat” in the lyrics. I request our nowledgeable readers to tel us the meaning of this word in the lyrics. Is this word in some way a synonym of “laaj” ?

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra and the blog ten year challenge details were sent by Avinash Scrapwala.

Dear Shri Atulji,’Ghunghat’ was a quite hit movie of that time.Family drama with so much of climax and anticlimax.Well.. your doubt about the word ‘pat'(पत) is quite well defined with synonym ‘laj’ (लाज़).Well.. we can have razor thin difference between these two.’Pat’..Can have various angles viz.Honour /Respect/Name/Legacy of Khandan/Shame/Grace..Etc.It’s important in which context it is used. With warm regards!Dilip Pardeshi..PUNE
