A stalwart of many talents, a multi faceted personality who was single handedly responsible for bringing to life the endeavors of Assamese cinema, bringing international recognition to the age old music and culture of far eastern India.

Remembering Dr Bhupen Hazrika on the anniversary of his birth – he would have been 96 today. He is known as ‘Shudha Kontho’ – the one with the nectar of amrit (shudha, sudha) in his throat.

He was born in Sadiya, Assam in 1926. Even as a child, his musical and singing talents were evident. In 1939, at the tender age of 12, he recorded his first song for the Assamese talkie film ‘Indramalati’ (1939). His traveled to faraway Benaras for his education (BA and MA degrees in Political Science, 1944 and 1946), and then to the US for his PhD to New York (Columbia University, 1952). However, the association that was established in childhood would be sustained and strengthened over the years. 

He became recognized as a renowned film maker in the east. As a renowned musician, and a multi lingual lyricist and vocalist, he was the representative face of the music and culture of that region. And more than that, he was the cultural ambassador of India to the rest of the world.

Many awards and accolades came to him throughout his illustrious career, most notable being the Sangeet Natak Academy award in 1987, Dadasaheb Phalke lifetime achievement award in 1993, and the Padma Bhushan in 2001. He was the president of the Sangeet Natak Academy from 1999 to 2004. As a creator of films and film music, he has been conferred many honors by film associations and critics associations in the US, Japan, Bangladesh, besides India.

Bhupen Hazarika breathed his last on 5th November, 2011.

‘Rudaali’, a 1993 production by the feminist film maker and director, Kalpana Lajmi, is a story about the life and tribulations of Shanichari (Dimple Kapadia), a poor woman, abandoned by her own family as a child, and later in life, abandoned by the man whom she loves. A caustic and a weather beaten personality, her life is dogged by one misfortune after another. But the character within is stronger than steel, and she faces the world without a tear in her eye. The strength of her resolve is at conflict with her profession of a mourning woman, rudaali, in the villages of interior Rajasthan. The film is a powerful commentary on the traditional status of women in rural India. The film itself, and the portrayal if the central character by Dimple Kapadia, has won many awards and recognitions, both national and international.

The lyrics of this film are penned by Gulzar, and the haunting music is from the mind of Bhupen Hazarika. This particular song is rendered both by Bhupen Hazarika and Lata Mangeshkar. The deep baritone voice of Bhupen Hazarika so strongly brings to life the powerful verses.

The song tells about the personal sorrows and tribulations of the protagonist – Shanichari, a rudaali woman in rural Rajasthan. Bhupen Hazarika version plays in the background, as we the entire life of Shanichari crumbling and wasted around her. We see her sitting next to her husband’s funeral pyre, slowly removing all her jewellery and adornments. Later in the song, she is face to face with Raj Babbar, her lover, who has also abandoned her. The words are so evocative and portray the sadness that reigns inside her. “Teri Oonchi Ataari, Maine Pankh Liye Katvaaye” – your adobe is at such a height, and the miserable me has shorn off her wings.

A deeply moving experience about life itself.

Lyrics

Bhupen Hazarika version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye
tera chhua laage
meri sookhi daal hariaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

jis tan ko chhua tune
us tan ko chhupaaun
jis mann ko lagey naina
woh kisko dikhaaun
o more chandrama aaa
teri chaandani ang jalaaye
oonchi tor ataari
maine pankh liye katwaaye

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ek boond kabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

Lata Mangeshkar version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye
tera chhua laage
meri sookhi daal hariaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

jis tan ko chhua tune
us tan ko chhupaaun
jis mann ko lagey naina
woh kisko dikhaaun
o more chandrama aaa
teri chaandani ang jalaaye
teri oonchi ataari
maine pankh liye katwaaye

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ek boond kabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

भूपेन हज़ारीका

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

तेरी झोरी डारूं
सब सूखे पात जो आए
तेरा छुआ लागे
मेरी सूखी डाल हरीआये
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

जिस तन को छुआ तूने
उस तन को छुपाऊँ
जी मन को लागे नैना
वो किसको दिखाऊँ
ओर मोरे चन्द्रमा आ
तेरी चाँदनी अंग जलाए
ऊंची तोर अटारी
मैंने पंख लिए कटवाए

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

लता मंगेशकर

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

तेरी झोरी डारूं
सब सूखे पात जो आए
तेरा छुआ लागे
मेरी सूखी डाल हरीआये
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

जिस तन को छुआ तूने
उस तन को छुपाऊँ
जी मन को लागे नैना
वो किसको दिखाऊँ
ओर मोरे चन्द्रमा आ
तेरी चाँदनी अंग जलाए
तेरी ऊंची अटारी
मैंने पंख लिए कटवाए

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

Dear Sudhir ji,

Two more Awards to Dr. Hazarika perhaps inadvertently omitted by you, namely PADMA VIBHUSHAN in 2012 and BHARAT RATNA in 2019.

I am taking the liberty of placing two songs involving the two Bharat Ratnas.

First the NFS


(Music by Bhupen Hazarika, recorded in 1956)

and the second from the 1956 Film “ERA BATOR SUR”
(= “songs from the deserted avenue” from Assamese). This was Dr. Bhupen Hazarika’s maiden Directorial debut on return from higher studies (PhD in Mass Communications from Columbia University) in the US where he had met and married his Gujarati wife PRIYAMBADA PATEL, a danseuse of repute and who was also the choreographer of the Film.

The Film was partly autobiographical, set against the backdrop of the oppression and exploitation of the workers by the British owners of the Assam Tea Gardens. Dr. Hazarika had to go to Bombay to persuade Lata ji to sing for his film and took fellow IPTA Member Salil Chowdhury along for company. She agreed and the rest, as they say, is History. Here is that wondrous melody, with words and Music by Dr. Hazarika :


(Jonakare Raati)

I am sure you will like both the songs

With warm regards

PARTHA CHANDA

Thanks for the post, Sudhir ji.
I haven’t seen the movie & I don’t remember to have heard Lata version.
Though the lyrics are reproduced separately for two versions, I find they are same, unless my eyes missed something 🙂
