Mukesh and his Composers -21
————————————————

Did Mukesh act in ‘Uss Paar’ (1944)?

The correct and factual answer along with credible proof to the above question is of historical importance as it refers to the first ever payback rendered by Mukesh.

If Mukesh has not acted in the film, then apparently it will be his first playback.

If he has acted in some capacity, then there are again two possibilities.

  1. He was a side actor and the duet with Kusum was featured on him only.
  2. He had a role in the film, but said duet was picturized on someone else.

One song from ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) has been covered on the blog and it is in fact, the elephant in the room.

Sudhir ji in his extraordinary series ‘The voice of Mukesh’ has covered this duet with Kusum Mantri and has considered it to be the first playback of Mukesh.

All indications are that Mukesh did not act in the movie, but undeniable proof is yet to surface.

Coming to the next post in this series, we take up the career of Mukesh with composer-singer Bulo C Rani today.

Yes, I agree that Bulo C Rani had nothing to do with ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) as it was composed by Feroz Nizami.

But then while searching for some information on Bulo C. Rani, I happened to refer to the book Hindi Film Song by Ashok Da. Ranade. In his description of the works of Bulo C. Rani, Ashok ji in his book on p. 226 says about the film ‘Moorti’ (1945).

In it “badariya baras gai” – which was Mukesh’s first song as the composer often claimed with pride – won popularity.

There we go again. Was Bulo C Rani implying ‘Uss Paar’ duet of Mukesh was not his first playback. Since Bulo C. Rani was very much part of HFM during 1944 -1945, he must have known about Mukesh’s actor-singer songs to take the credit of composing the first song (playback) of Mukesh.

Matters get more complicated with Mukesh with many firsts such as first song, first playback, first popular song etc. And before all these we have his six NFS which he recorded in 1939 at Delhi before coming to Bombay.

When the question referred in the very first line of this post is addressed satisfactorily with proof, I intend to write a separate post on the many firsts of Mukesh with a detailed table.

Coming to the discussions on today’s collaboration, I am happy to bring forth the many memorable and sweet songs that Mukesh sang under the baton of Bulo C Rani.

Before I go into the details of the songs, here is a brief and bullet point summary on the life of Bulo C Rani much of it from the book referred above.

  • He was born on 6 May 1920 in Hyderabad Sindh and his originally name was Bulo Chandiramani Ramchandani.
  • He came to Bombay in 1942 with DN Madhok and joined Ranjit Films to assist Kemchand Prakash.
  • In his initial part of film career, he sang a few songs under different composers.
  • He is credited for composing for the first Sindhi film Abana (1958)

Apart from the above, I request interested readers to apprise themselves of the life and career of the composer with the following three links in which the respective authors have done enough and valuable research.

 

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Badariya baras gayi uss paar Moorti (1945) Khursheed and Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
2 Haseeno se haseeno ko Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
3 Maana ke tum haseen ho Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
4 Pardesi dhola Prabhu Ka Ghar (1945) Mohantara Pt Indra Chandra
5 Jaa parwaane jaa Rajputaani (1946) Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
6 Kiye jaa pyaar Rajputaani (1946) Pt Indra Chandra
7 Kaise bataaun unse Anjuman (1948) Shamshad Begam Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Woh teer kaleje par Anjuman (1948) Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 Unki gali mein aaye hum Nazaare (1949) Rajinder Krishan
10 Armaan bhara dil toot gaya Wafa (1950) Lata Hasrat Jaipuri
11 Aansoo bhaavo tum udhar Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy Majrooh Sultanpuri
12 Mast chaandni jhoom rahi Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy M L Khanna
13 Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahani Abdullah (1960) Shewan Rizvi
14 Ham bhi kho gaye hain Madam Zorro (1962) Kamal Barot Shewan Rizvi
15 Main hoon deewaanaa Haqdaar (1964) Prem Warbartani

The above table provides the complete table of songs composed by Bulo C Rani and sung by Mukesh. It appears, Mukesh was the favorite singer of the composer especially in the late forties and early fifties. Why the composer used Mukesh sparingly in the sixties is not clearly known.

Some beautiful ghazals and delightful duets were the hallmark of the combo. The melodious songs are well known to avid music lovers and I am avoiding describing them again.

As usual, Shri Harish ji has confirmed, correctness of the above table and added useful information that Mukesh sang for the composer, two more duets with Asha Hargunani for a Sindhi film Naqli Shaan (1972) with lyrics by Krishna Rahi.

  1. Ankh Phadke Dil Dhadke
  2. Haseen Raat Aa Mast Aa Fizaa

Out of the 15 songs enlisted above only one from the film ‘Abdullah’ (1960) remains to be covered on the blog and is presented in this post.

 

Song – Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahaani Namaaz Ki  (Abdullah) (1960) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shewan Rizwi, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki
hai hum pe farz bandagi banda nawaaz ki
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

mulk e arab me ek haseena thi nek naam
karti thi apne rabb ki ibadadat wo subh o sham
usko namaaz padne ka bachpan se shauk tha
ik waqt ki namaaz bhi karti na thi kaza
nanha sa ek laal tha us paak baaz ka
gurbat me shukr karti thi wo beniyaaz ka
masoom bachcha bhookh se rota jo beqarar
pani pila pila ke thapakti thi bar bar
guzre isi tarah jo museebat me teen saal
shauhar ke dil me uspe safar ka hua khayal
shauhar ki bat sun ke wo majboor ho gayi
do dil ki ye judaai thi manjur ho gayi

biwi ko rota chhod ke jab ghar se wo chala
masoom bachcha baap se apne lipat gaya
samjha ke maa ne god me bachche ko le liya
wo chup rahi to ashqon ne haafiz khuda kaha
nikla ghareeb ghar se ghareeb ul watan hua
jungle ki tez dhoop me aur bhookh me chala
nagaah ek daku ki us par padi nazar
zalim ne mara zulm se ek teer taak kar
lagte hi teer dil pe wo chakra ke gir pada
waake mein teen waqt the duniya se chal basa
daaku karib aaya use dekhne laga
bhai ko murda dekh ke wo tharthara gaya
roya lipat lipat ke biraadar ki lash se
sar phodta tha apni hi bhai ko mar ke

kehta tha ro ke haaye ye kya maine kar diya
bhai ka khoon apne hi daman me bhar diya
munh peet’ta hua wo sehar ki taraf chala
bhabhi ko apne kehne ko pur dard maajra
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

masroof har namaaz mein wo ek zaat thi
go din ki bhookh mein bhi thi mashgool e bandagi
daaku ne raah zal mein yaa shauhar ke bhai ne
tab aa ke tod daale ummeedon ke aaine
kehne laga suhaag tera maine le liya
apne hi haathon qatl biraadar ko kar diya
daaku gunehgaar ko rehban ko dekh le
khoon se bhara hua mere daaman ko dekh le
ye sun ke cheekhi aur wo behosh ho gayi
duniya se bekhabar wo gaflat mein so gayi
roi tadap ke khwaab mein shauhar ko dekh kar
dil tukde tukde ho gaya dilbar ko dekh kar
nanhe ka baazu thaam liya dil ko thaam kar
kehne lagi ke le chalo shauhar ki laash par
al qissa roti peet’ti pahunchi wo laash par
kadmon pe sar ko rakh diya shauhar ko dekh kar
fariyaad rabb se karne lagi ho ke beqaraar
utri falak beewi koi sun ke ye pukaar
haathon mein ek jaam tha munh par naqaab thi
rehmat baras rahi thi charaafa hijaab ki
wo beewi boli is pe chhidak de ye jaam tu
aur padh ke is se pooch le allah ka naam tu
paani chhidak ke naam e khuda us pe dam diya
kudrat khuda ki dekhiye wo murda jee utha. . .

ye dekh kar lipat gayi shauhar se wo ghareeb
kehne lagi ke mil gaya mujh ko mera habeeb
daaman pakad ke beewi ka phir poochhne lagi
tum kaun ho khudaara bata do ye raaz bhi
wo beewi boli main hi khuda ki namaaz hoon
maalik ki bandgi hoon barkat ka raaz hoon
apne namaazion ki main bigdi banaati hoon
apne namaazion pe main rehmat lutaati hoon
gaayab hua ye keh ke farishta namaaz ka
padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka

padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka. . .

Blog Day :

4751 Post No. : 16489

Eid ul Azha mubarak ho, to all friends and readers.

It is generally believed that faith and logic are two different things.  What is faith?  Basic premise of faith would be the belief in God.  The conviction that there is a Supreme Power who holds the strings of all things in the universe.  After all the world is a stage and we all are actors.  Shakespeare said it, but it is nothing but the truth.  All of us are here for a set number of days, playing our designated roles, doing things we are destined to do, amassing good deeds and bad deeds.  As we complete the life circle and leave this mortal world, the soul does go somewhere, where else it will go but to the creator?  Logic has no option but to agree that the creator is in best position to answer the question, what is the purpose of creation?  If there was no creator, nothing makes sense in the whole existence. Science can give answers till a certain point and that is that. Logic starts where science gives up.   And sound logic points to God, the Creator, the Sustainer, the one who says “be” and it is.

I quote here some of the verses from the Glorious Quran.

“O Mankind, indeed we have created you male and female, and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you, in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, ALLAH is (all) knowing and (well) acquainted.” –  49:13

“And (O Muhommad) say: My Lord forgive and have mercy, for you are the best of all who show mercy.” –  23:118

“O mankind, there has come to you, a convincing proof (Prophet Muhammad) from your Lord and we send down to you a manifest light (this Quran).” – 4:174

“And whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] himself.” – 27:92

“And for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.” – 65:4

“Allah never changes the condition of people until they change what is in themselves.” – 13:11

“And put thy trust in Allah. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.” – 33:3

“Take care of your souls.” – 5:105

“Do not ridicule others, perhaps they may be better than you.” – 49:11

“If you are thankful, I will increase my blessings upon you.” – 14:7

“So remember me, I will remember you.” – 2:152

“He knows what is in every heart.” – 67:13

“Verily, with every hardship comes ease.” –  94:5

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear.” – 2:286

“Do not lose hope, nor be sad, for you will overcome them, if you are among the believers.” – 3:139

“We will test you in fear, hunger, loss of wealth life & fruit, but give glad tiding to the patient (steadfast).” – 2:155

“Call upon me, I will respond to you.” – 40:60

“Indeed, Allah is with those who abide him and those who are doers of good.” -16:128

“Allah will provide for him from a quarter from where he had no expectation. And whosoever puts all his trust in Allah, He will be enough for him. Allah is in command and he has set a measure for all things.” –  65:3

“And worship your Lord until there comes into you the certainty/inevitable (death)” – 15:99

“You prefer the life of this world. Although the hereafter is better & more lasting.” 87:16-17

“And we have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars.” – 67:5

“The Pharoah’s wife said (Pray) My lord, build for me near you a house in paradise.” –  66:11

These ‘Aayaat’ are part of different Surah (Chapters) in the Quran, revealed at different times to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) (570-632 CE), during his Prophethood years (610-632 CE).  Mohammed (PBUH) was unlettered with no formal education, and had rarely traveled outside of Makkah, before his migration (Hijraah) to Madinah.   All ‘Aayaat’ of the Holy Quran were revealed to him, via the Angel Jibraeel (AS) at different times and in context of different situations. They were delivered as signs and guidance. These ‘Aayaat’ were then related by the Prophet (PBUH) to his companions (Sahaba), who recorded them in writing.  All of these ‘Aayaat’ were recorded in the Prophet’s life time. It was collated/arranged in a meticulous way, in the form of different Surah’s of the Quran during the reign of Hazrat Abu-Bakr (RA) (573-634 CE), the first Khalifa, in the present compilation. Hazrat Umar (RA) had a great contribution in this process.  There is great detail available about how the procedure was done, with verification of at least 2 witnesses that the Aayat is indeed written down in the presence of the Prophet.  Different Surah’s are also classified as ‘Makkih’ and ‘Madnih’, those revealed before migration to Madinah and after.

How simple and easy, is the faith and the true path, can be discerned in these quotes. How wise is the counsel, for all situations? It answers some of the basic questions bothering the mankind, with intellectuals, philosophers, thinkers having scratched their heads for all these millennia.  I have tried to collate them in an order, so it is in the order of creation, faith, trust, thankfulness, the true way of living, easy way of functioning as a creation, hope, the hereafter, the quest for heaven, how it is near and then the last one speaks of the wife of one (Pharoah-who denied the existence of Allah and declared himself as God) can ask (pray) for the highest level in Jannah (Paradise). It means, its available for everyone, one only has to seek it and ask for it, whatever and whoever you are.  This may not be the best way of saying it, and if I have erred, may Allah (SWT) forgive me.

A brief definition of Jannah with a prayer:

Jannah, where there will be no sickness, no pain, no difficulty, no separation, no loss.

Jannah, its beauty such that no mind could even ever comprehend.

Jannah, where those you love are waiting for you.

Jannah, where your Allah is waiting for you.

Jannah, which is never ever going to end.

Remind yourself that this is the decree of Allah and in his decisions is hidden kindness. Remind yourself that it is not just going to be okay, but it is going to be worth it.

Dear heart, please just remind yourself that your Allah is with you. Please don’t ever forget that.

Your Allah is with you. Your Allah will never leave you.

He knows of your condition. He is aware of your struggle.

And not a single moment of this going by unrewarded.

Allah knows that you are scared, and it is okay to be scared.

Keep trusting your Allah. Don’t lose hope in His mercy.  He is right here with you.

Feel it and treasure it.

———————————————————————————————————

On a different note, this is what Allama Iqbal has to say:

Sajdon ke ee’waz firdaus mile ye baat mujhe manzoor nahi
Be-laus i’baadat karta hoon banda hoon tera mazdoor nahi

 Ee’waz or I’waz means in return of, and ‘Firdaus’ is Jannat/heaven/paradise in persian.

What Iqbal means is :

I am not doing salutations / ibaadat (supplication) and itaa’at (obedience / submission to the will of Almighty), so that you grant me heaven in return. My prayers are pure, as I am your slave and not a paid servant.

This is, but the highest point of devotion, that the pious seek.

One of those pious, righteous, seekers of the divine favour, was Umar Farooq (RA) (584-644 CE). Umar bin Khattab was the second Khalifa of the Khulfa-e-Rashideen. The status of Umar Farooq, as a Sahaba, companions of the Prophet (PBUH), as among the beloved and respected Khalifa, can be ascertained from the fact of his being one of the “Ashra Mubashra”.  “Ashra Mubashra” are the 10 exalted ones among the Sahaba, who were given the ‘Good News’ or ‘Glad Tidings’.  What would be the ‘Good News’ who have the clear idea of the purpose of creation, life and death?  It is the achievement of securing a place in ‘Jannah’.  So, by divine declaration, those 10 were given the Good News, that a place is secured in Jannah for them. The magnificent ten include all four Khulfa-e-Rashideen.  Umar Farooq (RA)’s significance as a Khalifa and his role in the spread of Islamic empire much beyond the Arabian Peninsula is indisputable and incomparable.  One more significant and important contribution of Umar Farooq (RA), is the introduction of Islamic calendar i.e. the Hijri calendar.  There is a great deal to learn from his story, for he was one of the major detractors of the Prophet for a long time.  But once he accepted that Mohammed is indeed the Messenger of Allah, and came into the fold of Islam, blessed by the Allah (SWT) and rose to great heights that he did.

 I have read up a lot in recent days, so that I could give some accurate and concise information in this post.  But if I go on, this post will never finish.

So, I will move to the song, which is a non-film song sung by Mukesh. The song is composed by Iqbal and lyricist is Shadaab Minai.  Shadaab Minai is probably making a debut here with this song.  The song is talking in detail of an incident i.e. a qissa during the reign of Umar Farooq (RA), the second Khalifa.

Tally of music director, lyricist and singer in the blog so far as follows:

 

Iqbal

23

Shaadaab

2

Mukesh

797

932

Unless the Shadaab in the stats page is the same as Shadaab Minai, otherwise this is the first song written by Shadaab Minai in the blog.

This is a rare song, which I think few people may have heard before.  I was not aware it until a few months ago, when it was shared by someone on WhatsApp.

 

Song – Hai Bahut Mashoor Ye Qissa Umar Farooq Ka (Mukesh – NFS) (1970), Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shadaab Minai, MD – Iqbal

Lyrics

hai bahot mash-hoor ye qissa
Umar Farooq ka
aaj bhi duniyaa mein hai
charcha Umar Farooq ka

jab khilaafat ka sharf
haasil hua Farooq ko
momino ki fikr rehti thhi sadaa Farooq ko
kaam aate thhe har ek
majboor ke Hazrat Umar
shauq se karte thhe khud
har ek ki khidmat Umar

phirte phirte ek din
pahunche Umar ek ghar ke paas
dekhte kya hain
wahan baithhi hai ek aurat udaas
degchi chulhe pe thhi aur
ro rahe thhe us ke laal
jab kiya Hazrat Umar ne ja ke
aurat se sawaal
ro rahe hain kis liye bachche
yeh kya hai maajra
bhook se rote hain ye bachche
ye aurat ne kaha
bole Hazrat degchi mein
pak raha hai kya kaho
kis liye ghamgheen ho
jo kuchh bhi hai dukhda kaho

boli wo aurat ke paani se bhari hai degchi
kyun ke main bachchon ko behlaati hoon
is soorat se hi
uff taraste hain ye bachhche daane daane ke liye
kuchh nahi hai mere paas in ko khilaane ke liye
teesre din ka hai faqaa
mere bachchon par huzoor
mera koyi bhi yahaan wali nahin
nazdeek-o-dur
roye uss ko dekh kar iss haal mein
Hazrat Umar
aa gaye fauran hi bait-ul-maal mein Hazrat Umar
aata kapda ghee chhuaare aur raqam le kar Umar
ghamzada aurat ke ghar ki simt daude jaldtar
peetth par dekha Umar ke bojh to bola ghulaam
bojh uttha kar mujh ko chalne deejiye aye nek naam
ye Umar bole agar ye bojh main de doon tujhe ea
hashr ke din kya sazaa dega na jaane rab mujhe
de diya dukhiya ko sab saamaan la kar aap ne
aur khilaaya sab ko khaana pakaa kar aap ne

khaa liya bachchon ne aurat ne khaana jis ghadi
ho gaye Hazrat Umar khush dekh kar un ki khushi
aap ko de kar duaaen phir ye aurat ne kaha
kaash mil jaata koyi ham ko khalifa aap sa
ham gariboon ki Umar koyi khabar rakhte nahin
a’iysh mein hain mast dukhiyon par nazar rakhte nahin
le ke dukhiya ki baaton ka asar Hazrat Umar
khaamoshi se laut aaye apne ghar Hazrat Umar

subah us aurat ko Faarooq ne bulwa liya
aur wazifa us ka bait-ul-maal se jaari kiyaa
ho ke sharminda phir Umar ne aurat se kaha
dukh bahot pahunchaa hai tum ko
meri ghaflat se sada
tum mujhe kar do mu’aaf
itni hai meri iltejaa aa
tum jo mujh ko bakhsh do
bakhsh de mujh ko khudaa aa

saari duniyaa mein hai charcha
har kahin Farooq ka
koyi bhi insaaf mein
saani nahi Farooq ka
koyi bhi insaaf mein
saani nahi Farooq ka

Blog Day :

4749 Post No. : 16484

So. Finally it is official.

We are teenagers now, the first step into the growing up years. The childhood years left behind and now the coming of age years are starting.

What started off as a ‘let’s-try-it’ hobby run with the simplest of the simple philosophical musings – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li“, has come of age today and has blossomed into a huge tree with thousands of branches spread out, with roots that are deep and strong, and are full of conviction. A tree that provides shade in terms of solace to the lovers of music, which in turn are spread out all over the globe. This is the world tree of music and songs. This is a tree that has a flavor for every palate, a tree that has fruits of everlasting tastes for the connoisseurs, a tree that conserves and perpetuates that enchanting phenomena that is the lovely Hindi Film Music – this is a tree that has many different meanings and many different treasures for the seekers of pleasure in music. There is a whole universe of music that has  settled itself around this tree. Although the desires abounded for flowers, but when none were forthcoming this direction, the protagonist settled for the proverbial thorns to start with. That humble gesture ensured that flowers of all shades and colors, and also, flower bearers of all tastes and wonders, kept on coming together one by one, till a complete orchestra of performers was formed, and the bandwagon got its name.

Thirteen years and counting. And if you talk of counting, here are some counts that will really make you happy with wonder.

Do you know that we have a visitor to this blog, every thirty seconds – the total count (and still counting) is upwards of 14.5 million visitors. Now that is a number to really wonder about.

Do you know that we have been averaging quite, quite close to one new film per day since the inception of this blog. 4749 days today and 4480 films showcased. And oh yes, that is not counting the Non-Film songs categories. Adding them categories, we shall surely be at 1+ new film or new non-film song category per day. Isn’t that a wow that makes one feel like flying.

Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.

And that is where the superlatives start ceasing to have an impact.

13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. . .

And just ONE person.  Now isn’t that something to boggle the google. Especially when we know it is a labor of love, and that it is not an endeavor for remuneration. Ah yes, it does finally boil down to love. As does of course, everything else in this universe.

That one person, carrying the entire earth on his shoulders, like the legendary Atlas. Not pausing for even a day to rest. Of course yes, there have been rarities that we have had dot days. But in the final count, the averages will speak for themselves. No matter how many runs and how many centuries – double, triple – any other batsman has scored, the Don Bradman remains the Don Bradman when the averages are calculated.

Atul ji, over the years that we have been associated for this endeavor, we have completely used up all the possible epithets and adjectives to address our appreciation of your work. And now, we are at a loss to articulate this emotion any further. And will finally end up saying these lines that I borrow from another legend – ABBA,

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

And not just to me – to this entire world, a compilation that is sans any peers. Who would have thought it could have been possible. Your own words have been that your earliest flights of imagination brought you to a number of maybe 2,500. And that then you would rest.

Aah, but for the passion this ignited, within yourself, and within this motley crew of the musical bandwagon. The counter is ticking oh so close to 16,500 posts. And not a day’s breather seems to be in view. Mightier and stronger and higher we ride the Olympian altitudes. And the bandwagon keeps chugging along, day on day, week on week, month on. . .

I just thought of taking a look at the date of 19th July across our travels. We have had a total of 68 posts that have been celebrating this anniversary, after the intial 19th July post of 2008. Seven posts in 2009, 4 posts in 2010, 5 posts in 2011, 6 posts in 2012, 5 posts again in 2013, then on to 7 posts once again in 2014, 5 posts in 2015, and wow, a whopping 8 posts in 2016, back to 4 posts in 2017, aah – 3 posts in 2018, 4 posts in 2019, back up to 6 posts in 2020, and then today, 4 posts again to celebrate this wondrous milestone. With songs posted across the entire spectrum of decades, from 1936 all the way up to 2002, the celebrations of this anniversary have been multifarious and varied.

Ah but let me not bore you with any more statistics and analyses. And bring you to this song for the celebration today.

Geeton Ka Sansaar Yahaan Par

Took me a while to locate this wonderfully complementary theme song for this celebration. And for its rarity, it is – sorry, it was not yet available online. The film is ‘Nai Reet’ from 1948. The film itself makes a debut on our blog today.

The film has been produced under the banner of India Film Corporation, Bombay and is directed by Shubh Karan Ojha. This relatively obscure film that probably did not garner much attention and box office receipts when it was released in 1948, has the cast listed as Sulochana Chatterjee, Geeta Bali, Rajendra, Krishankant, Tiwari, Badri Prasad, Tara Bai, Leela Mishra, and Ramesh Sinha. Most names are familiar, and I am sure the full cast would be carrying more names.

The film has 8 songs in total. All the songs are written by a team of two songwriters in collaboration – Bal Krishan Gupta and Ratan Kumar Gupta. The footnote that is carried in the Geet Kosh, succinctly states that – “As per the information recieved from Lyricist Bal Krishna Gupta all songs this film were written by both Lyricists working together, i.e. `Kumar-Gupta` (Ratan `Kumar` Gupta + Bal Krishna `Gupta`. However the records carry the name as `Kumar Gupta`.” So by this input, we would also use the lyricist’s name as Kumar-Gupta.

The music is by SK Pal, and the singing voice is that of Meena Kapoor.

And the words – they oh so well sum up the emotions of this celebration today – that here is a universe of songs that has been put together for us.

गीतों का संसार यहाँ पर
मुसकानों का मेला है
पत्ती पत्ती झूम रही
हर फूल में जादू फैला है

A world of songs is here
It is a festival celebration of smiles
Every leaf is swaying with delight
There is a joyous magic spread through every flower

मैं भी अपनी झोली लाई
भर लेने को बिखरी दौलत
मैं भी दौड़ी दौड़ी आई
क्या छोड़ूँ क्या चुन लूँ इस में
लगता बड़ा झमेला है

In haste I come here
To gather this treasure spread about
I try to garner it all in my arms
And the mind is in a dilemma
What all shall I take
And what all shall I leave

एक अनोखा बाग है दुनिया
सुन्दर सुन्दर प्यारा प्यारा
मानो मीठा राग है दुनिया
पागल मन मेरा मस्ती में
कली सा खिल खिल खेला है

What a joyful garden this world is
So beautiful and lovely
The whole world is a sweet melody
And my mind is untamed in passion
Blossoming like new buds playing

Yes, all these emotions run through the mind when I look at this incredible and phenomenal treasure of enchanting melodies – this world of songs, here, with us.

A grand celebration for this inception day milestone.

A wonderful musical greetings to all readers and all members of the musical bandwagon.

And a bagful of wishes and blessings, that this tree may only proliferate further, day by passing day.

And that this journey may never cease.

तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम ना बीते कभी ये सफर. . .

Song – Geeton Ka Sansaar Yahaan Par  (Nai Reet) (1948) Singer – Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Kumar-Gupta, MD – SK Pal

Blog Day :

47207 Post No. : 16431 Movie Count :

We have often likened this blog to a ‘train and its journey’. Here this train- ‘the blog’ is driven by the ‘engine’ that is our fearless leader Atul ji. The coaches of this train or the ‘wagons’ 🙂 are the team members. This train – a ‘bandwagon’ is on an exciting journey of exploring and discussing yesteryear Hindi Film Music and some non-film music too. The blog is read all over the globe (right?) and there are many many readers and well-wishers associated with this blog.

The journey is on … and before anybody ‘sleeps’ :), he or she must fulfill the commitments made to themselves and for the blog. These commitments have been taken voluntarily by the members with the permission of the ‘leader’. From the team members there already is our ‘in-house’ ‘encyclopedia’ and seniors writing in-depth posts on the yesteryear’s music and movies. There are passionate team members actively participating in this journey of ‘love for the cinema and HFM’.

Then there is me often sending articles, lyrics contribution, reminders to the editors, pointing out corrections, giving suggestions and (emotional blackmailing 🙂 of the editors not included.) always requesting for something or the other, all the time. 🙂

So, everything is going on well in order like a ‘standard operating procedure’. Here it is mutually agreed and ‘non-documented’ ‘SOP’ operating successfully for more than ten years now (that is after the contributors joined). This blog is the best example of well-synchronized efforts towards a ‘common goal’ in agreement by all.

Well, everyone is now aware of what I have mentioned above. But how the blog was in its initial days …

When it started, only the originator ‘the leader’ was there, and then he was not also a leader but a simple ‘enthusiastic music lover’. I guess that when he initiated this blog, he was an already married person. What did you said … is that anything to do with this blog? Yes, because after all a family person has to look after his family and also needs to contribute to domestic work 😊 at least in a small way if not a big contribution.

So how it was all when Atul ji had just started the blog? And after that, how he keeps it going, moving from places to places in his professional life?

That imagination is the subject of the today’s article with a rocking song accompanying to it :).

Before that we need to see Atul ji in two aspects – one being ‘his self’ in isolation as the one-man army, and second as a ‘team leader’ with all team members. It is him only who is ‘constant’ (like ‘change’) and owns a responsibility to keep this blog going. So, how he sets out on this journey, travelling from places to places, exploring HFM. I am sure when he launched this blog his morale was at an all-time high-level.  Since he was already doing a job then, the workplace responsibility also gets added and after that he needs to find time for his passion – writing about Hindi movies, the songs, and his related memories.

So, the journey of blog started from Jabalpur and then moving from places to places – Jabalpur to Nagpur, Nagpur to Bilaspur, Bilaspur to Izzat Nagar (Bareilly)- it is now halting at Gorakhpur. The next station may be Bhopal 😊 we hope so 😊.

Well, the journey must have started with the same energy as our today’s hero started ‘main niklaa o gaddi le ke’ 🙂!

 And every city he (our leader) lived in he left his ‘dil’ and collected ‘unforgettable memories’ of these places. In this process he did not care where he was. He was just moving … ‘gaddi le ke’

On the way he finds ‘moti’ (substitute for ‘mutiyaar’ 🙂 ), or actually lot of ‘motis’ (pearls). These are the ‘rarest of rare gems’ that are posted on the blog. Imagine that the dot days on the blog are the obstacles or ‘phaatak’ and ‘signal’. But, being disciplined person, our leader will not break the signal (translation of ‘signal todna’ or jumping the signal) and run, but he will wait’ and resume with more force with new milestones. Just think that the milestones are the centuries of songs and stations en route are the centuries of the various artists.

I believe that our leader does not believe in ‘dreaming’ and is a ‘man of action’. But, if not dreaming, at least, he must be planning some special articles for special occasions and combining them to ‘special statistical events’ on the blog. There are many new things – new songs – of yesteryear (starting from the thirties) coming to the blog which maintain the excitement of this beautiful journey. New events with ‘older songs’ keep the momentum always on a higher scale.

Just imagine thousands of songs falling from the heaven like petals of flowers, their fragrance filled in all the space around, and the man with his both his hands trying to collect each petal and embracing them to his heart with love. . . each creation of the songs getting the same love and enthusiasm and resting at their places shining like a bright star. . .

(We have compared the treasure-trove of songs to the ‘ocean of songs’ many times, for a change this time we symbolize them with flower-petals falling from the heaven 🙂 so that we can embrace them to the heart.)

Operating in this digital age now and maneuvering the steering with remote controls the ‘gaddi’ is travelling. And the journey is on. . .

 So today when our dear Atul ji is celebrating his birthday we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy, wealthy, peaceful and ‘full of musical life’ ahead. . .

Let us now enjoy this entertaining song dance performance in Jat Yamla style 🙂 and celebrate this occasion. . .

Blog Day :

4720 Post No. : 16430

Welcome all to this post. We are discussing movies who made their debuts on the blog in its initial days and then they remain with ‘only one song posted’ on the blog for a long time or specifically more than ten years of gap.  Under this condition the today’s movie is ‘Sharaafat’ (1970)’.

This movie made its debut on the blog with its only known song (I think so) ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’ on 02.11.2008. So, today after a gap of 4614 days (including 20.06.2021) or twelve years, seven months, and nine days we are going to listen the second song from this movie.

‘Sharaafat’ was directed by Asit Sen for ‘Seven Arts Pictures, Bombay’. It had Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Soniya Sahni, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kanhaiyalal, Sapru, Shabnam, Zebunnisa, Roopesh Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Poornima, Paro Devi, Jankidas, Brahm Bharadwaj, Chandrima Bhaduri, Kundan, Kesho Rana, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Tun Tun, Raj Kishore, Ajay Kashmiri, Prakash Mishra, Machhar, Dilip Dutt, Ratan Gaurang, Wajid Khan, Ravikant, Shefali, Bilkis, Jagdish Bhalla and many others.

This movie had six songs which are all female solo songs, five sung by Lata Mangeshkar and one solo by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics for all songs of this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Following is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer
01 Mera rastaa rok rahe hain ye parbat anjaane … Lata Mangeshkar
02 Duniya ne sun li hai chhupke apni prem kahaani … Lata Mangeshkar
03 Pehle naa dekha jaise kisi ne, aise mujhe aaj dekha Lata Mangeshkar
04 Jeewandaata jagat pitaa tum Lata Mangeshkar
05 Sharaafat chhod di maine Lata Mangeshkar
06 Main manaaun bhalaa kis tarah aapko Asha Bhonsle

I do not remember to have watched this movie but I was always aware of its most popular song ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’. And for today’s post when I was looking for the other songs from this movie, I thought I will listen all and then decide. I listen to the today’s song and found it somewhat familiar, so I am presenting this song today.

The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and the gorgeous looking Hema Malini has lip synced it on screen. We can also see Dharmendra in his characteristic charming style of those years.

I hope you will also like this today’s song as I liked … it is something special 😊

Song – Mera Rasta Rok Rahe Hain Ye Parbat Anjaane (Sharafat) (1970) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Lakshmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

mera rasta rok rahe hain
ye parbat anjaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane

mera rasta rok rahe hain
ye parbat anjaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

parde mein jaise koi baat hai
jaane ujaala hai ke raat hai ae
parde mein jaise koi baat hai
jaane ujaala hai ke raat hai
chanchal man kehta hai chal chal
darr na chhode aanchal
o phoolon ki galiyaan hai yaa
kaanton ke veeraane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae

paaon mein gham ki zanjeer hai
man mein khushi ki tasveer hai
paaon mein gham ki zanjeer hai
man mein khushi ki tasveer hai
aashaa mujhko aage kheenche
aur niraasha pichhe ae ae
kis ki maanoon
aur kiski na maanoon
dil deewaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae

चंचल मन कहता है चल चल

ओ फूलों कि गलियाँ है या
काँटों के वीराने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने

पाँवो में ग़म कि ज़ंजीर है
मन में ख़ुशी कि तस्वीर है
पाँवो में ग़म कि ज़ंजीर है
मन में ख़ुशी कि तस्वीर है
आशा मुझको आगे खींचे
और निराशा पीछे ए ए
किसकी मानूं
और किसकी ना मानूं
दिल दीवाने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने

Blog Day :

4720 Post No. : 16429

Hullo Atuldom

20th June, a Very Important Date in the calendar of ASAD. It was on this date, a few decades ago, a person dear to this blog was born. Correction, I would like to change person dear to this blog was born with person whose brainchild this blog is. Person whose love for music led to the genesis of this blog. Person who is kind enough to take us along on this musical journey. Thank you so much Atul ji for this blog. Wish you A Very Happy Birthday. Hope the great times continue and we Atulites are able to keep pace with you

Today I am presenting a song from a movie which made its debut on the blog in 2011 (almost 10 years ago, 15-20 days away from the 10-year mark) with this song “Ye Pyaar Bhara Dil Hai Muhabbat Ka Khazaana” by Sudhirji. This post has the general storyline of the movie. The next song from this movie was “Pyaar Beqaraar Hai Pyaar Ki Awaaz Sun” by Nahm ji. That post has two versions of the same song. So that makes it 3 songs from an album having around 10 songs.

I find that YouTube is not helpful as there seems to be no video links to the movie’s songs, only audio links. Here is the next song which is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, written by Shyamlal Shams and Kamal Mitra is the music director.

The movie is ‘Yahudi Ki Beti’ from 1956, which had a cast of Daljit, Anita Guha, Tabassum, Tiwari, Helen, Maruti, Al Nasir, Rajan Haksar, Wazir Mohammed Khan etc. Nanubhai Vakil is credited as director of the movie. (I am sure that there are knowledgeable followers of the blog who will be able to provide more details about the movie, its director, music director, lyricist etc.)

The thoughts expressed in this, very simply-worded song, indicates that it was lip-synced by the heroine of the movie – Anita Guha. The first time I consciously saw her in a movie was in ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’, when I saw the movie on TV sometime in the 80s. Then I was informed that she was the actress who played Rakhee’s mother in ‘Sharmilee’ and Rajesh Khanna’s foster mother in ‘Araadhna’. Then I slowly realized that I have seen her in quite a few movies like ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’, ‘Anuraag’ etc. I have read somewhere that Prema Narayan, who was popular in the 70s and 80s (of ‘Armaan’, ‘Ponga Pandit’ and numerous such movies) is the niece of Anita Guha. Anita’s husband was Manik Dutt – an actor who was seen playing supporting characters in movies till the late 80s.

More trivia about Anita Guha some other time. Let us get on to the song and once again wish our Dear Atul ji on his birthday. Wish him many more milestones in life as well as on the blog.


Song – Chori Chori Dil Mein Ye Kaun Aa Raha Hai (Yahudi Ki Beti) (1956) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Shyamlal Shams, MD – Kamal Mitra

Lyrics

chori chori dil mein ye kaun aa raha hai

mausam abhi jawaan hai

chup chup ke mere khwaabon mein koi aa raha hai
jo muskura raha hai
chori chori dil mein ye kaun aa raha hai

tadpa ke meri duniya jo muskura raha hai
muskura raha hai
chori chori dil mein ye kaun aa raha hai
kaun aa raha hai

Blog Day :

4702 Post No. : 16406 Movie Count :

The other day, Madhuri Dixit’s birthday was celebrated on the blog and it inevitably reminded me of many of her songs. This is one song from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), which is never out of mind, though has been out of sight for many years now. This was in 1989, and my mother and elder sister were already fans of Anil Kapoor. I was not a fan and would call him some uncharitable names, not unprintable but will not mention here. The era of seeing every Amitabh Bachchan film was over, and Subhash Ghai, the producer director of this film was a big name. He was so big that he got to name a few of his heroines, rechristen them literally. Meenakshi, Madhuri and Manisha, Mahima etc. He was fixated or superstitious about naming the heroines beginning with the letter ‘M’. I have seen very few Anil Kapoor songs appearing in the blog. Some newer songs are here, but the many films he did in his earlier period, especially of his jodi with Jackie Shroff, are not here at all. Same is the case with Madhuri Dixit.

Film magazines like Stardust and Filmfare, were still the popular medium of reading and gaining knowledge, useful as well as not so useful. I can say for sure that it has been decades, since I have seen a film magazine in any language. Even doctor’s dispensaries don’t have them. I personally don’t know anyone who buys/reads any such magazines, or if they grace the center-table in any living rooms nowadays. Quite a fall for these publications really. Absence of television has helped, so that I am not even aware of the winners of Filmfare awards these days.

The song in question is a well composed, written and sung, sort of a filmy situation ‘bhakti’ song. Madhuri Dixit is the highlight, as only she could be. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have given a dekho, a ‘retro’ of ‘Pakeeza’ soundtrack and their own ‘Sargam’ soundtrack in the interlude music. The team of Anand Bakshi & L-P were a pro at creating such situational songs. And Lata Mangeshkar was still the backbone of any L-P score, be it the films of the South or Bombay.

What is happening here is the engagement party of Madhuri Dixit, sort of, with Amrish Puri’s son. Jackie Shroff is a police officer, playing the title role of Ram and Anil Kapoor is the younger brother Lakhan. Madhuri is forced to accept this alliance by her father Anupam Kher, with no help from Anil Kapoor, who is away on training as Police Inspector. So, when Madhuri is asked to perform in front of the guests, she starts the bhajan, remonstrating with the Almighty, and complaining to Ram present in the party, directly. Another highlight of the song is the way Jackie Shroff is seen to be preening (in his fine feathers) almost, as the addressee and the brother of Lakhan.

Anyway, when it is Lata Mangeshkar, who is crooning “Ho Ram ji ee eee”, and Madhuri Dixit is on screen, performing, who can stay unmoved.

Lyrics

jab kaali kaali raatein hongi

aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

jab kaali kaali raatein hongi

jab aam ki daali dolegi
aur door koyaliya bolegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

jab tum hum ko yaad karoge
jab tum hum ko yaad karoge
bhoole se ek aah bharoge
bhoole se ek aah bharoge
jab jhilmil jhilmil taare honge
jab jhilmil jhilmil taare honge
chanda se shokh ishaare honge
chanda se shokh ishaare honge
jab dhak se chhati dhadkegi
aur aankh hamaari phadkegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

Remembering Nargis today on the 91st anniversary of her birth.

Born in the year 1929, she made her debut in films as a child artist as early as 1935. And then starting with 1942, she moved on from child roles to adult roles. As I was searching for a song from her early years in films, I chanced to see this song, which is really very playful and chirpy. And listening to the song made me wonder why has this song so far been away from this blog.

Nargis is all of 21 years of age, as she is singing and trying to hold back Karan Dewan (her husband in the film) from going to office. The words of the song are simple and endearing and the whole ambiance of the scene is very charming. There is a childlike entreaty in the pleadings of the newlywed, as she recounts her hours of boredom when the husband is sway to office. And the husband too is in part a willing accomplice, only that near the end of the song, his elder brother (role played by Shyam Chadha) calls him to leave for office, and he has to perforce make a quick departure from the song and the beseeching wife.

The film is ‘Chhoti Bhabhi’ from 1950. It is produced under the banner of Filmkar Limited, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors in the film is listed as Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyama, Suraiya Chaudhary, Yakub, Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani Jugnu, G Sarang, and Khushdil. Yes, the Johar we see in this list is IS Johar, doing a small role here.

The film has nine songs, all of them are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music is from the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram. It is 1950 – and the voice of an equally young singer, Lata Mangeshkar, sounds so wonderful. The rendition by the singer and the performance on the screen, both are really superb. The outcome is a naughty playful song that is really endearing.

The film has a total of nine songs, of which seven songs are already showcased here. This is the eighth song to find its place on our blog today. With one more to go, this film is ready for the Yippeee category.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The post title is always a dead giveaway, that this song belongs to the series that is recalling some of the interesting reuse of earlier songs in Hindi films.

This selection is a medley of songs that appear in the film ‘Pet, Pyaar aur Paap’ (1984), at different points in the story line. The accompanying video is an edited composite video, which brings together all the hilarious comic scenes wherein the earlier songs are used in the film.

The film comes from the banner of Sunitha Cine Arts, Madras and is produced by Mrs. G Lalitha. The story, screenplay and direction are by Dorai. The film had three songs written by Bhushan Banmali, and the music is by Bappi Lahiri.

The star cast is listed as Raj Babbar, Smita Patil, Aruna Irani, Tanuja, Hina Kausar, Chaman Bagga, Sulabha Deshpande, Mukri, Govind, Riaz, Alok, Hanif, Sushmita, Master Bobby, Lal Chand, Baby Najma, Rahul, Dulari, Deepak, Dileep, Madhav, CS Dubey, Mohan Sherry, Ram and Debu. There is also a good collection of guest artists – Mehmood, Amjad Khan, Vinod Mehra, Moushumi Chatterji and Amitabh Bachchan.

The film tells the story about an extra marital love affair of a truck driver (Raj Babbar) with a lady (Smita Patil) who lives in extreme poverty in a hutment in a slum area. The truck driver already has a family, something that he hides from the lady to start with. As the story unfolds, the secrets are revealed to both the lady love and the wife of the truck driver. The film ends in a sore tragedy with the death of the lady in stark circumstances, leaving behind an infant girl. The saving grace of the film is that the truck driver’s wife accepts the child and brings her home. The film is not very strong and convincing, in terms of characters and the progress of the story line, at least in my opinion.

It is interesting to note – this film came about in the time when the actual extra marital affair between Raj Babbar and Smita Patil was in full swing in real life. Raj Babbar had left his wife Nadira Babbar, to be with Smita Patil. On her side, this affair drew very sharp criticism for Smita from her fan base and her social activist colleagues. Smita was very active in the feminist movement in India, and supported and worked for many causes for women. Some trivia located for this film includes a small nugget that says  Raj Babbar and Smita Patil financed this film.

The film that was released in 1984, became a harbinger for the future events to follow, in real life. Just two years later in 1986, Smita Patil died two weeks after giving birth to Prateik Babbar. The cause for her death is noted as complications due to child birth – a scenario that played out similarly in this film – the lady dies after giving birth to the child of the truck driver. Smita’s death is a strange and scary episode wherein reel life meets the real life in all its harshness.

The comic relief in the film is provided by Amjad Khan. He owns a cycle repair shop in the slum area. His shop is situated just opposite to the hutment of the lady. He too is a married man with children. And he too has eyes for the lady. He owns a record player, and plays music whenever the situation demands it. He expresses his love and desires by playing appropriate songs on the record player. Of course, the effect on the target audience is actually the opposite to what he expects. These small interludes in the film provide some jocularity in an otherwise mostly slow and sad film.

It is a real treat to watch Amjad play out these comedy scenes. He is at his hilarious best as he tries to imitate the action for the song that is being played, and then when challenged by Smita, his efforts to recover and control the damage are equally mirthful. I am sure you will greatly enjoy this medley.

The repeat songs are played in original, as they are being played from the records. So the credits for all these songs become due to the original artists.

Another interesting reuse episode. And yes, some more still to come.

Song – Main Shaayar To Nahin (Medley)  (Pet Pyaar Aur Paap) (1984) Singer – (Multiple), Lyrics – (Multiple), MD – (Multiple)

Lyrics

main shaayar to nahin
main shaayar to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha
maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayi
main shaayar to nahin
magar ai haseen
jabse dekha maine tujhko
mujhko shaayari aa gayi
main aashiq to nahin
magar. . .

mere sapnon ki raani kab aayegi tu
aayi rut mastaani kab aayegi tu
beeti jaaye zindagaani kab aayegi tu
chali aa tu chali aa
mere sapnon ki raani kab aayegi tu
aayi rut mastaani kab aayegi tu
beeti jaaye zindagaani kab aayegi tu
chali aa, aa tu chali aa. . .

ahha haan haan haan
jab pyaar kisi se hota hai
to dard sa dil mein hota hai
tum ek haseen ho laakhon mein
bhala paa ke

 

akele akele
akele akele
kahaan jaa rahe ho
rahe ho rahe ho

akele akele kahaan jaa rahe ho
hamen saath le lo jahaan jaa rahe ho
akele akele kahaan jaa rahe ho
hamen saath le lo jahaan jaa rahe ho
akele akele…,
akele akele…,
akele akele…,
akele akele…,

 

dukhi man mere sun mera kahnaa
jahaan nahin chainaa vahaan nahin rahna
dukhi man mere

dard hamaaraa koi na jaane
apni garaj ke sab hain deevaane
kiske aage ronaa royen
des paraayaa log begaane. . .

 

tere mere beech mein
tere mere beech mein
kaisa hai ye bandhan anjaana. . .
kaisa hai ye bandhan anjaana. . .
kaisa hai ye bandhan anjaana. . .
maine nahin jaana. . .
