Today’s song is from the Mythological film Ekadashi-1955.

What is Ekadashi ?

Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day (Tithi) of the shukla (bright) or krishna (dark) paksha (fortnight) of every lunar month in the Hindu calendar (Panchang). In Hinduism and Jainism it is considered a spiritually beneficial day. Scriptures recommend observing an (ideally waterless) fast from sunrise on the day of Ekadashi to sunrise on the day following Ekadashi. Hindu scriptures teach that it is especially important to avoid all beans and all grains on this day because on the day of Ekadashi these two foods are contaminated by sin, one should eat only fruits and vegetables and milk products on this day. Ekadashi day is recognized as the best of all days to fast because it is on this day of the moon phase in which the rays of the moon actually nourish the subtle nerves and feelings of the heart.

Two Ekadashis occur in one month according to positions of the moon. The progression of the moon from full moon to new moon is divided into fifteen equal arcs. Each arc measures one lunar day, called “tithi”: The time it takes the moon to traverse that distance is the length of that lunar day. Ekadashi refers to the 11the tithi, or lunar day. The eleventh tithi therefore corresponds to a precise phase of the waxing and waning moon: In the bright half of the lunar month, the moon will appear roughly 3/4 full on Ekadashi, and in the dark half of the lunar month, the moon will be about 3/4 dark on Ekadashi.

Bhagavata Purana (sk. IX, adhy. 4) notes the observation of Ekadashi by Ambarisha, a devotee of Vishnu.

Ekadashi Vrat is supposed to be very important. In Maharashtra, the Ekadashi falling in the month of ASHADH is celebrated at Vitthal mandir in the Holy city of Pandharpur. Lakhs of devotees walk for 21 days,barefoot,to reach the temple. It is called VAARI. Here is some more information-

Ashadi Ekadashi , Pandharpur
The Pandharpur yatra is held on Aashadi Ekadashi (June- July). One of the most famous pilgrimages in Maharashtra, Pandharpur Ashadhi Ekadashi Wari has been taking place for more than 700 years. This is a religious padyatra,which comprises over 1 million pilgrims traveling for 21 days to Vithoba temple by foot. Numerous palkhis (processions) from various towns and villages join the main palkhi that starts from Sant Tukaram Temple at Dehu in Pune district. The yatra culminates at the Vithoba temple on Ashadi Ekadasi at Pandharpur. The annual Pandharpur Yatra to the famous Vithoba Temple at Pandharpur in Maharashtra is an unparalleled pilgrimage that breaks the barriers of caste, creed, rich and poor. The main rituals are performed in the early morning (0300hrs).

Although 2 Ekadashis fall every month, on which the elders and the ladies in our huge joint family observed fasts, the children were discounted from them. However, every year the entire family – including the children – observed fasts on 2 important Ekadashis (one in the month of Aashaadh and one in Kaarthik) and the Maha Shivratri. On these days the menu of the eatables used to be of those items, which were allowed to be eaten on fasting days, like Sabudana khichadi, Upwas Bhajani Thalipeeth (साबुदाणा खिचडी / उपवास भाजणी थालीपीठ ) etc. We children used to love these items as they were made only on these days and were very tasty. So, actually the children (and some elders too) consumed them in greater quantities than the usual daily diet. There is a special proverb for this in Marathi – ” एकादशी – दुप्पट खाशी ” – which means ‘ eating double on Ekadashi ‘ !

Almost 90% Hindus are religious minded and the custom of fasting and walking long distances to do the Pooja of specific deities is prevalent all over India. In the West. it is the Ashadhi Ekadashi Wari to Pandharpur, as described above.

In the East, there is a barefoot walk of 6 kms on a hillock near Guwahati in Assam to do the Pooja of Kamakhya Devi (Kamakshi Devi).

In the North, the famous Vaishno Devi yatra of 12 kms walk is undertaken by almost 10 million devotees.

In the South, it is the famous Sabari Malai hill based Ayyappa pooja around Sankranthi, after 2 days’ barefoot walk through the jungles and hills of Kerala. This is after one has observed penance and abstinence for 40 days.

Our readers can add some other such events elsewhere and also make corrections in my descriptions, if needed.

The film Ekadashi was made by All India Pictures, Bombay and was produced by the brothers R.L. and M.L.Arora. It was directed by Dada aka V.M. Gunjal. The M.D. was Avinash Vyas and the main cast was Trilok Kapoor, Mala Sinha (her first and the only Mythological film), Sulochana, Gope, Badri Prashad etc. The story of the film Ekadashi was….

In the days of the King Rukmangad of Ayodhya, the King and all his subjects, Proud or Humble, adhered to this Fast and as a result, while they lived on this planet they had Peace of Mind and therefore Temporal Bliss and after death ascended to Heaven. Now that all Ayodhya people went to Heaven-and Ayodhya was a vast and populous kingdom-the population of Hell fell colossally.

This caused great anxiety to the King of Hell-YAMRAJ, as his Prowess as King narrowed down with the diminished numbers. He took upon himself to create a breach in the strict observance of the fast by the King Rukmangad: as like King, like subjects, all would follow suit and prosperity would reign supreme in Hell. But all the manoeuvres of Yamraj fell flat against the religious fervour with which the King followed the observance. As a last resort, Yamraj got Mohini by supplicating to Brahma. Mohini-beauty incarnate in female from-was a power that subdued all it saw; sages or saints, high or low.

The ordeal of putting up resistance to this force was too much for Rukmangad and he staggered. Diamond cuts diamond and woman does likewise. The Maharani Sandhyavalli knew this and her efforts and sacrifices to save her lord proved all in vain. The King’s heroic struggles against beauty aroused were wasted and when all seemed black for this holy pair their son, Dharmangad, rose to the sally of beauty. Child against beauty-both the highest creations of the Almighty were arrayed face to face. Finally,it was the victory of Good over Evil. Mohini accepted her defeat and withdrew. Thus the importance of Ekadashi Vrat remained intact.

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt.

Song-Yahi hai kya sansaar tumhaara (Ekaadashi)(1955) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Pt Madhur, MD-Avinash Vyas


yahi hai kya sansaar tumhaara
jiske tum maai baap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
chor luteron ke maathhe par
saadhupan ki chhaap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
yahi hai kya sansaar tumhaara
jiske tum maai baap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap

tan hai ujla man hain kaala
sab japte matlab ki maala
tan hai ujla man hain kaala
sab japte matlab ki maala
duniya apne dharam ko bhooli
tum baithhe chup-chaap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
yahi hai kya sansar tumhaara
jiske tum maai baap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap

angaaron par jeevan gaadi
ye kaisa hai khel khilaadi
angaro par jeevan gaadi
ye kaisa hai khel khilaadi
bhakton se bhagvaan ka jag mein
hota nahin milaap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap

yahi hai kya sansaar tumhaara
jiske tum maai baap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
jahaan hai kadam kadam par paap
