Today 31st July’2021 is the forty-second ‘Remembrance Day’ of Singer Mohd Rafi (born on 24.12.1924 and passed away on 31.07.1980).

On this occasion as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the 1965 movie ‘Sant Tukaram’.

This was the oldest song, movie-wise, and oldest one that I had noted among the Rafi songs lying ready with me.

“Sant Tukaram-1965” was directed by Rakesh Nanda for ‘Ashok Films, Bombay’. It had Anita Guha, Shahu Modak, B.M. Vyas, Rohit Kumar, Madhu Apte, Badri Prasad, Kesari, Narmada Shankar, Vishwas Kunte, Tun Tun, Sadhna Khote, Helen, Rajpal and others.

Our respected Arun ji has given the story of this movie while discussing this song ‘Is jeewan mein jin jin se… ham to chale apne gaaon, sab ko mera raam raam’ as below.

About there centuries ago, Tukaram was born in Dehu Gaon. He was a sudra and had poor village folk take good from his shop and asked them to pay when they could afford. Mumbaji, the Pujari of the Ganesh Temple held permanent grudge against him. He instigated another grocer of the village to set fire to Tukaram’s shop. As if all these calamities were not enough one more was added to his lot in the form of famine. Tukarams old mother, his first wife and son died of starvation. Thukaram became detached from the world and spent his whole time in worship. He developed extraordinary powers. He even gave life to a dead child. But all this didn’t offer bread to his family. His surviving wife, Jeeja Bai implored him to seek some avocation. The landlord offered him the job as the watchman in his fields. Mumbaji drove cattle in the fields in order to destory the crop. By the grace of Lord Krishna, the yield was double, and the landlord gave Tukaram place for worship of the Lord.

Now Mumbaji asked Rambha a Nautch girl to spoil his reputation by enticing Tukaram with her fake love. Rambha failed. As a last resort he invited Rameshwar Bhatt the religious head to Dehu Gaon. Rameshwar Bhatt ordered Tukaram to stop writing abhang since he was born a shudra and ordered him to throw his `Gatha (Collection of Abhangs) in the Indrayani river. He did so but took a vow that he will fast unto death till his Gatha was restored to him by the Deity of the river. This miracle happened after two weeks ordeal. Shivaji Maharaj come to meet him. He offered money and gold to Tukaram, but he humbly declined to accept it. Shivaji that evening joined his keertan. Mumbaji informed the Moghuls to capture Shivaji. The Moghul Army found a thousand Shivaji’s and they returned flabbergasted. After this incident he peacefully wrote more abhangs. Mumbaji turned a leper and the village children pelted stones on him. Rameshwar Bhatt’s body felt burning sensation and even long submerging of the body in water could not heal him. At last, Tukaram received the message of the Lord to go to Heaven. The village folk thronged the streets for his Darshan. Even Mumbaji and Rameshwar Bhatt came to ask his forgiveness. They were cured of their maladies. The celestial Viman descended from the sky before the entire gathering of the village, and he went to heaven bodily.

This movie had eight songs. They ere written by Bharat Vyas (six songs) and Madhukar Rajasthani (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vedpal.

Here are the details of the songs in this movie.

08 Is jeewan mein jin jin se… ham to chale apne gaaon, sab ko mera raam raam Manna Dey Bharat Vyas 10.11.2013

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and it is lip-synced on screen by Shahu Modak.

There is this incidence of Rameshwar Bhatt asking Sant Tukaram to immerse all his writings – Abhangs in the river Indrayani. In the movie the today’s song seems to be happening at this incidence where Sant Tukaram immersed his writings into the river and singing this song.

Let us now listen to today’s song sung by Mohd Rafi. Lyrics are by Madhukar Rajasthani, and music is composed by Vedpal.



Song-Jaaga naya sawera andhiyaara dhal gaya (Sant Tukaram)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Madhukar Rajasthani, MD-Vedpal


Shri Krishna govind gopalam
Shri Krishna govind gopalam

Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Toote jagat ke bandhan
Jeewan badal gaya aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Apnon ki moh maaya
Jhoothi baraat hai
Such dukh ka ye kabeelaa
Bande ke saath hai
Isko samajh ke bachna
Apne hi haath hai
Vedon ka saar ismein
Chhoti si baat hai
Aankhon ne jab ye parkha
Sankat hi tal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Chhal aur kapat mein uljha
Phirta hai aadmi
Karta hai jag mein jaisa
Bharta hai aadmi
Sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh naa
Samjha hai aadmi
Jaaye naa saath kuchh bhi
Jaata hai aadmi
Socha ye jisne uska
Har pal sambhal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Jhoothhe hain saare bandhan
Saanson ke taar ke
Rakh de re jag ka bojha
Jag mein utaar ke
Shamshaan ki chitaayein kehtin pukaar ke
Aana yahaan padega
Maanav ko haar ke
Oonche gagan pe chadh ke
Suraj bhi dhal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Toote jagat ke bandhan
Jeewan badal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Avinash Ji ,
Thanks for the post about Rafi’s song and about Sant Tukaram.
I have not heard this before. Quintessential Rafi Saheb. It is in the mold of ‘Duniya na Bhaye mohe …..’ from ‘Basant Bahar’


Its my pleasure Sir ji that you liked this post and this song.
Thanks for reading and commenting on the post.


👍🏻agree with your comments.
Heard it first time today. And almost similar to songs of “Baiju Bawra”
