——————————————

Welcome all to today’s post.

Today’s ‘poetry recitation’ is the third offering from this movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ (1972) to appear on the blog.

The first ‘poem-post’ from this movie – “Tum Ek Baar Priye Aa Jaao“, was posted on the blog on 05.02.2022. This poem was written and recited by ‘poet-lyricist’ Maya Govind. The second poem from this movie – “Lakshmi Maiyya Var De” was presented on 12.02.2022 which was written and recited by Kaka Hathrasi.

The movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was directed by Kedar Sharma for Rajshri Productions Pvt Ltd., and it was was produced by Tarachand Badjatya. Compering of this poetry recitation program and introduction of the poets was done by Ramrikh ‘Manhar’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1972, which means this movie has now completed ‘fifty years’ of its age 😊

The footnote for this movie page in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that “Bharat ke shreshthhtam Kavi pehli baar ek saath rajat-pat par pesh kiye gaye thhe” – (“भारत के श्रेष्ठतम कवि पहली बार एक साथ रजत-पट पेश किए गए थे”). Poems of following poets are included in this movie.

Rashtrakavi Shri Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’
Santosh Anand (mentioned as ‘Santoshanand’)
Kaka Hathrasi
Som Thakur
Bekal ‘Utsahi’
‘Neeraj’
Snehlata ‘Sneh’
Radheshyam ‘Pragalbh’
Shail Chaturvedi
Govind Vyas
Maya Devi
Nirbhay Hathrasi
Balkavi Bairaagi
Omprakash ‘Aaditya’
Manik Verma
Kedar Sharma
Gopal Prasad Vyas

(Addenda in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for this movie mentions that there were two more creations by Vimlesh and Paras Bhramar in this movie.)

Today’s poem is written by Gopaldas Saxena popularly known to us by his pen-name ‘Neeraj’. He has given us a ‘treasure trove’ of his poems and many immortal lyrics in Hindi Film Songs which will be read and savored by generations to come, as long as poetry and Hindi Film Music is discussed.

This recitation is a set of three short poems. In Hindi, this is called a ‘मुक्तक’ (muktak). These are short poems that are not connected to each other, although they are presented together.

Neeraj ji was born on 04.01.1925 and left this world on 19.07.2018. A detailed post on Neeraj ji, with the song “Isko Bhi Apnaata Chal Usko Bhi Apnaata Chal” (film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’, 1965), was written by our Shri Sadanand ji on 20.07.2018 as a tribute to him. I think this is one of the excellent posts on the blog that everybody should read. Hence, I am not mentioning about Neeraj ji’s biography or filmography in brief here. Because his ‘stature’ is so great and requires a post of such calibre which is already written by Sadanand ji. This post mentions in details about the biography of Neeraj ji and his journey into the world of poetry and film songs. I request readers to kindly go through this post.

Let us now listen to today’s philosophical poem – a set of three short ‘मुक्तक’,  recited on screen by a younger Neeraj ji himself.


Song-Khushi Jis Ne Khoji Wo Dhan Le Ke Lauta (Kavi Sammelan)(1972) singer-Neeraj, Lyrics-Neeraj

Lyrics

Muktak – 1

khushi jis ne khoji
khushi jis ne khoji
wo dhan le ke lauta aa
hansi jis ne khoji
chaman le ke lauta

khushi jis ne khoji
wo dhan le ke lauta
hansi jis ne khoji
chaman le ke lauta

magar pyaar ko
khojne jo chala wo o o o
na tan le ke lauta
na mann le ke lauta
khushi jisne khoji

Muktak – 2

koi chala
koi chala
to kis liye
nazar tu dabdaba gayi

koyi chala
to kis liye
nazar tu dabdaba gayi
singaar kyun seham gaya
udaasi kyun ye chha gayi

na janm kuchh
na mrityu kuchh
bas itni sirf baat hai ae ae
ki kisi ki aankh khul gayi
kisi ko neend aa gayi ee
koyi chalaa to kis liye …

Muktak – 3

chhup chhup ashru bahaane waalon
moti arth lutaane waalon
kuchh sapnon ke mar jaane se
jeewan nahin maraa karta hai

sapna kya hai
nayan sej par
soya hua aankh ka paani
sapna kya hai
nayan sej par
soya hua aankh ka paani ee ee
aur tootna hai us ka jyon
jaage kachchi neend jawaani

geeli umar banaane waalo
doobe bina nahaane waalo
geeli umar banaane waalo
doobe bina nahaane waalo
kuchh paani ke beh jaane se
saawan nahin maraa karta hai ae ae

chhup chhup ashru bahaane waalo
moti arth lutaane waalo
kuchh sapnon ke mar jaane se
jeewan nahin maraa karta hai

मुक्तक – 1

खुशी जिसने खोजी
खुशी जिसने खोजी
वो धन ले के लौटा
हंसी जिसने खोजी
चमन ले के लौटा

खुशी जिसने खोजी
वो धन ले के लौटा
हंसी जिसने खोजी
चमन ले के लौटा

मगर प्यार को
खोजने चला वो॰ ॰ ॰
ना तन ले के लौटा
ना मन ले के लौटा

खुशी जिसने खोजी

मुक्तक – 2

कोई चला
कोई चला
तो किस लिए
नज़र तू डबडबा गई

कोई चला
तो किस लिए
नज़र तू डबडबा गई
सिंगार क्यों सहम गया
उदासी क्यों ये छा गई

ना जन्म कुछ
ना मृत्यु कुछ
बस इतनी सिर्फ बात है
के किसी की आँख खुल गई
किसी को नींद आ गई
कोई चला
तो किस लिए॰ ॰ ॰

मुक्तक – 3
छुप छुप अश्रु बहाने वालो
मोती अर्थ लुटाने वालो
कुछ सपनों के मर जाने से
जीवन नहीं मरा करता है

सपना क्या है
नयन सेज पर
सोया हुआ आँख का पानी
सपना क्या है
नयन सेज पर
सोया हुआ आँख का पानी
और टूटना है उसका ज्यों
जागे कच्ची नींद जवानी

गीली उमर बनाने वालो
डूबे बिना नहाने वालो
गीली उमर बनाने वालो
डूबे बिना नहाने वालो
कुछ पानी के बह जाने से
सावन नहीं मरा करता है

छुप छुप अश्रु बहाने वालो
मोती अर्थ लुटाने वालो
कुछ सपनों के मर जाने से
जीवन नहीं मरा करता है
