Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 14
———————————————————————-

So, let me start by prefacing that that I am probably the slowest contributor of this blog. While people like Sudhir ji have over a 1000 posts, and my own mother is slowly inching towards 200, this one is a measly tenth post by me. Earlier college and now my work life, leaves me with barely any time and energy to write for this much loved blog of ours. However, I still do lurk and read regularly everything that all of you write. And that’s when I realize, my busy schedule is probably just an excuse for my laziness. For when, Atulji can have written a whopping 10,000! Posts, what other reason can be there for me not having more than ten?

10,000 posts by one contributor, wow! When my mum told me this, I went and looked it up, and apparently the world record is for about 17000+ posts. Which means that our Atul is halfway to beating him. Also, I saw that blog and I can proudly say, those posts are not halfway as wordy and long as the ones on this blog. And just because something isn’t a world record, doesn’t mean its not a cause for a giant celebration. And Atul’s 10,000th post is definitely an occasion and excuse for us to party on considering 10,000 isn’t the end but the beginning of a journey that we still have a long way to go on.

This song is perfect for such a party. The song is from the 2014 movie ‘Khoobsurat’ and is picturised on Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan, has music and lyrics by Baadshah and is sung by him and Aastha. So let’s put on our party hats. . .

Kyunki abhi to party shuru hui hai!

Song – Abhi To Party Shuru Hui Hai (Khoobsurat) (2014) Singers – Baadshah, Astha, Lyrics – Baadshah, MD – Baadshah
Chorus

Lyrics

hey a
hey aaa

darwaze ko kundi maaro
koyi na bach ke jaane paaye
dj ko samjha do music
galti se bhi ruk na jaaye
thaka thaka jo feel kare
wo jaa ke do red bull gatak le
aur jisko dance nahi karna
wo jaa ke apni bhains charaaye

bas aaj ki raat hai
kal se wahi siyaape hain
jee bhar ke naach lo
na ghar waale na maa-pe hain
sab pe apna raaj hai
darne ki kya baat hai
ye to bas shuruaat hai
ye to bas shuruaat hai
arey abhi to party shuru hui hai
arey abhi to party shuru hui hai
ye ah
ye to bas shuruaat hai

baad mein na kehna kuch bhi
pehle hi de doon warning
party chalegi till
six in the morning
jee bhar ke naach le baby
naach naach ke tod de sandal
aunty police bula legi to
yaar tera kar lega handle
soochna jan hit mein jaari
jisko apni jaan pyaari
chup-chaap wo floor pe aaye
floor pe aake naache gaaye
nakhre wakhre na dikhaaye
sharam ko kar de bye bye
michael jackson waale do teen
action kar ke dikhaye, ow!
party karni hai
ho!
hum party karenge
ho!
kisi ke bhi pappa se nahi darenge
yeah!
hum hain bete hum
baaki saare paani kam
humen rok ke dikhaye
jiski bum mein hain dum

masti hai maahol mein
chhaayi ek khumaari hai
saare thak ke baith gaye par
apni party jaari hai
masti hai maahol mein
chhaayi ek khumaari hai
saare thak ke baith gaye par
apni party jaari hai
arey panga to koi shuru kare
apni bhi garaari hai
jimmy choo ki nok pe
rakhi duniya saari hai
rakhkhi duniya saari hai

arey abhi to party shuru hui hai

arey abhi to party shuru hui hai

arey abhi to party shuru hui hai

arey abhi to party shuru hui hai

aur jisko dance nahi karna
wo jaake apni bhains charaaye
he he he

हे॰॰ अ
हे॰॰ आss

दरवाज़े को कुंडी मारो
कोई ना बच के जाने पाये
डीजे को समझा दो म्यूज़िक
गलती से भी रुक ना जाये
थका थका जो फील करे
वो जा के दो रेड बुल्ल गटक ले
और जिसको डांस नहीं करना
वो जा के अपनी भैंस चराए

बस आज की रात है
कल से वही स्यापे हैं
जी भर के नाच लो
ना घरवाले ना माँ-पे हैं
सब पे अपना राज है
डरने की क्या बात है
ये तो बस शुरुआत है
ये तो बस शुरुआत है
अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है
अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है
ये॰॰ आ॰॰
ये तो बस शुरुआत है

बाद में ना कहना कुछ भी
पहले ही दे दूँ वार्निंग
पार्टी चलेगी टिल
सिक्स इन द मॉर्निंग
जी भर के नाच ले बाबी
नाच नाच के तोड़ दे सैंडल
आंटी पुलिस बुला लेगी तो
यार तेरा कर लेगा हैंडल
सूचना जन हित में जारी
जिसको अपनी जान प्यारी
चुपचाप वो फ्लोर पे आए
नखरे वखरे ना दिखाये
शरम को कर दे बाय बाय
माइकिल जेक्सन वाले दो तीन
एक्शन कर के दिखाये, आऊ!
पार्टी करनी है
हो!
हम पार्टी करेंगे
हो!
किसी के भी पप्पा से नहीं डरेंगे
याह!
हम हैं बेटे हम
बाकी सारे पानी कम
हमें रोक के दिखाये
जिसकी बम में है दम

मस्ती है माहोल में
छाई एक खुमारी है
सारे थक के बैठ गए
पर अपनी पार्टी जारी है
मस्ती है माहोल में
छाई एक खुमारी है
सारे थक के बैठ गए
पर अपनी पार्टी जारी है
अरे पंगा तो कोई शुरू करे
अपनी भी गरारी है
जिम्मी चू की नोक पे
रक्खी दुनिया सारी है

अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है

अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है

अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है

अरे अभी तो पार्टी शुरू हुई है

और जिसको डांस नहीं करना
वो जा के अपनी भैंस चराए
हे हे हे

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————-

गाता जाये बंजारा

That is the image that forms in the mind. A distant, unfamiliar scenario. A solitary person trudging along a dusty road that leads through farms and fields, passing through towns big and small.

There is a purpose in the pace. There is a steadiness in the tread. There seems to be an unhurried and patient urgency in the forward movement.

Is he searching for someone, for something? Is he expecting a certain destination? I don’t know. The landmarks, they come and go, the milestones pass by. But he appears not to halt anywhere, never seems to take rest. Just a pause at a milestone, sees it with a searching eye, takes another breath, and then presses on.

He seems to be carrying something, slung on the shoulders. Is that an instrument of music? Or is it something else? What is it, I am not able to make out.

The vision is distant. I cannot see clearly what he does with his hands, or with the thing he carries. All I can make out is the unyielding, the constant and lasting forward move. And the ears continue to pick up things – words, notes, wafts of melodies, strains of music. Some are familiar, have been heard before. Others are unfamiliar, new. And the mind scrambles to capture and become familiar. But before I can assimilate these distant new sounds, he takes another step and the ears hear yet another pleasing tune.

And on and on he moves, not faltering, not stopping, playing out a new song with every stride he puts forward.

I follow him, trying to keep pace, trying to catch up. His constant unrelenting march – I am not able to match.

It is a distant vision – a vision that is now a placeholder in life. Every time I get my personal breather, and am able to raise up my head and look ahead on that dusty road, he is there.

He is always there. The same figure, the same appearance, the same movement – with an ever new refrain of enchanting strains, with an always new refreshing canticle. As if a gift divine – दिने दिने नवम् नवम् । And I sense a rising emotion that I am not able to identify. A pleasing emotion that feels superlative, all encompassing.

Sometimes, I try to call out to him. Sometimes, he will respond. Sometimes, he turns his neck and looks back, where the sound is coming from. I am still far behind to make out his face. The smile that I encounter is more felt than seen. I feel he is smiling, though I cannot see that far clearly. He seems to recognize me, my voice. I can make out – he waves his hand at me, as if beckoning me to follow him. And then, he turns the head, looking forward, and continues his march unabated, undisturbed.

I try to speed up. I try to catch up and be with him. But my pace is not as energetic. I try to speed up. But he always remains ahead, remains distant in front. And then another emotion starts to take shape within. A feeling emerges. The feeling slowly forms into belief. And the belief begets assurance – and a sensation of confidence begins to grow. His momentary wave to me is a connect – his acknowledgement to me that we are together. And that he knows we are. And that he knows that now I know that he knows. And a relief washes down into my being. Maybe distant, but the journey has found an accomplice.

The hours and days now have passed into ages. The beat does not falter. The milestones of amazement have been left far behind now. And yet there is a new amazement at every step. The unexpected is the expected; and the expected is always startling.

That superlative emotion continues to linger in back alleys of the mind. The landscape keeps changing. We have passed the oceans by the beach, with their exuberant waves reaching out to the land, and the faint strains carried in the winds “तू प्यार का सागर है॰ ॰ ॰”. We have passed the mountains, full of trees and flowers. Wafting fragrances please the aroma buds singing “वादियाँ मेरा दामन॰ ॰ ॰”. We have passed the snow laden mountains, lovely shining white scenarios, with a set of footprint tracks in snow, as we walk past the peaks and valleys where the echoes tell us “ये पर्वतों के दायरे॰ ॰ ॰”. We have passed the farmers in their fields, joyful at the sight of “हरियाला सावन॰ ॰ ॰”, and proud of their bounty. Sometimes familiar faces will turn towards us and wave, their feet “नाच रे धरती के प्यारे॰ ॰ ॰”. We have passed the divinity of rivers and the boatmen humming “गंगा आए कहाँ से॰ ॰ ॰”. We have trekked along the dusty roads on and on with a horse carriage going by us, the coachman telling us “आई बहार आज आई बहार॰ ॰ ॰”. Across the fields and the waving produce, sometimes we have seen the steaming plume of a train going by, and the ears catch the faint words “पल दो पल का साथ हमारा॰ ॰ ॰”. At times a powered cycle will pass by, and the rider whizzes away singing “इक रास्ता है ज़िंदगी॰ ॰ ॰”. Sometimes a heavy truck chugs along, and the bearded driver gives a smiling wave and tells us “ले चला जिधर ये दिल निकाल पड़े॰ ॰ ॰”. Sometimes there is a celebration in the village beyond the farmlands; there is color and lights and a group of ladies singing “मनभावन के घर जाये गोरी॰ ॰ ॰”. Sometimes there is a fair; a big crowd is seen in the grounds across the river, and the beating drums announce “आई झूम के बसंत॰ ॰ ॰”. Sometimes under the shade of a tree, a ruffled mendicant is waiting for alms, intoning “सबकी हो खैर बाबा॰ ॰ ॰”. Passing a damaged bridge, there is group of workers singing “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना॰ ॰ ॰”. In the grassland next to the road, children play, and they teach – “नानी तेरी मोरनी को॰ ॰ ॰”. At another place, there is cluster of young ladies, teasing a belle “अखियाँ भूल गई हैं सोना ॰ ॰ ॰”. A jeep passes by, and the rider is humming “यारो नीलाम करो ॰ ॰ ॰”. On a parallel path, a convoy of soldiers marches on, and they are singing “चलते ही जाना ॰ ॰ ॰”. A multitude of such simple to life encounters.

The dusks descend at their usual time every day, and a smattering of lights will start burning across the landscape. The trek continues unabated. There is a lonely figure somewhere nearby, lost in the darkness of trees; is slowly singing, probably to himself “रुक जाना नहीं ॰ ॰ ॰”. Sometimes, in the falling darkness of the night, a flute is heard, that pulls the mind. And from a nearby dwelling, the voice of a belle is softly telling “ये बंसी क्यों गाये ॰ ॰ ॰”. The sky is littered with stars and the ways of the milky clouds. The trudge is incessant, and continues to move ahead unrelenting. Passing by another home, a mother is putting a child to sleep “टिम टिम करते तारे ॰ ॰ ॰”.  A lantern is seen waving in space, and I close in on a bullock cart, plodding along the road; and as I pass by, I catch the straining words “जीवन से लंबे हैं ॰ ॰ ॰”. The night carries on. The darkness goes and comes again. The wind is rustling the leaves, making the sounds of “ओ रात के मुसाफिर॰ ॰ ॰”.

And then on the eastern edge the stars begin to fade slowly. The greying skies tell of the advent of yet another day. That figure ahead of me is still at the same place in sight. In the darkness of night he would have crossed one, maybe two more milestones. The day begins to gather strength, the movement of farms and animals begins, the birds are out of nests and out to gather breakfast. A village belle walks by with a ‘गागर’ of fresh water from the well. She is humming “ज्योति कलश छलके ॰ ॰ ॰”. On a distant hill a temple bell is heard – “॰ ॰ ॰भगवान का घर है॰ ॰ ॰”. A fresh new day is here. There are new melodies that he has taught me over the previous day. The music is still lingering, playing in the mind. He looks back and waves, yet again. And then, as before, he faces ahead and continues to move.

The sounds that were prancing around in the bylanes of the mind all of the previous evening, form themselves into words, and the lips start to hum a familiar aria.

ले कर दिल का इकतारा
बस्ती बस्ती पर्वत पर्वत
गाता जाये बंजारा

And with that also arises again that unnamed superlative emotion that has been playing hide and seek in the mind since many a day. Who are you, I ask of it. All I get to feel as if there is a smile behind a cloud of smoke. A smile that is beckoning me, a smile that is urging me to follow and find out more, and to know. The words are not heard but are felt inside the heart. Who is it, what is it, I am not able to pin point. A young village lad goes past riding a bullock cart, and he is singing “॰ ॰ ॰ पूर्वा के झोंकवा में आइओ रे संदेसवा॰ ॰ ॰”. I turn and face ahead once again – that figure walking ahead of me, looks back and I can feel the same smile once again. Yes, he is there, he continues to move ahead, and continues to share the music. The path crosses a patch of blooming flowers. I strain and in the winds I can pick up the words “फूलों से दोस्ती है॰ ॰ ॰ कैसे मज़े की प्यारे ज़िंदगी हमारी है॰ ॰ ॰”. With every sound, with every ditty, there is a bump in the heart and a lump in the throat. I look up ahead. He is not looking back at me now. But I know. He is smiling. And he is enjoying.

The emotion swirling inside seems to take a diffused shape, and momentarily diffuses again. Eyes espy a young man and a belle, walking along the hedges of the wheat fields. They are seen at distance, and the words carry through “गुम है किसी के प्यार में॰ ॰ ॰”. Something familiar stirs inside. And a bevy of thoughts gather, vying with each other to fly the open skies. The feminine voice goes by prancing “अर्र रर पायल मोरी खनके हो॰ ॰ ॰”. And the young male voice presses for a tryst by the river “गोरी मिलना हो मिलना हो नदिया के पार॰ ॰ ॰”. Momentarily, the voices team up and the winds carry the words “॰ ॰ ॰मैंने दिल तुझको दिया॰ ॰ ॰”. The pathway skirts a shallow ravine. A row of young lasses is walking by, singing. I can decipher the strains faintly “चले जा चले जा चले जा, जहां प्यार मिले॰ ॰ ॰”. It all appears to be pulling together. The emotion rises again, and washes my being with a very pleasant fragrance.

I call out to him again. Loudly this time. For once, he turns his head and looks at me. “कहाँ ले चले हो॰ ॰ ॰”, the question forms on my lips. A big smile appears to cover all of his face. The words travel back to me “॰ ॰ ॰ जहां तक घटा चले॰ ॰ ॰”. He turns, and continues on, this time with a vigorous wave of his hand, pressing me to keep following.

I look up ahead. He is in the same mood, in the same mode. And I see him drop something. I quicken my pace, just to see. I try to call him. He continues moving, but responds with a wave of his hand. I reach that thing he has dropped. I pick it up. It is a piece of paper. On it are scribbled some words. It is a short and a simple message that is probably for me. The paper has the words “प्यार बांटते चलो॰ ॰ ॰”. I read. The swirling effusion rises to realization – oh yes, this is the purpose he walks on and on. I look up ahead. He is facing forward and moving on. In my mind’s eye, that smile appears once again.

The elation almost lifts me off my feet. It is love. It is that feeling of affection that rises and spreads to cover the world. The mind is free, the heart is joyous, and this world is the most beautiful place to be. The memories of all the thousands of milestones passed, suddenly appear and pass through the mind like a storm. Every melody that we shared across time and space. Every emotion that was spawned by the melodies. Every little molecule of joy and happiness that came with these emotions. Every stop of the journey flashes by in the portals of the mind. Ah, this journey, this detachment from the desires of reaching a destination, this freedom to keep going till we reach the “घटा” at the edge of the horizon. The ecstasy is so rejuvenating. And the mind remembers – “ये हंसता हुआ कारवां॰ ॰ ॰ तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम ना बीते कभी ये सफर॰ ॰ ॰”. It seems all that is life, is here and now with us. I look up again towards him. And this time, again, he turns his head, gives a big smile and, as if reading my mind, nods in the affirmative.

We continue moving forward. We pass many, many more stops and the melodies are acknowledged. The heart is in delight, the steps are springy and light, and the only desire is “॰ ॰ ॰ ना बीते कभी ये सफर॰ ॰ ॰”. After so many more milestones, he drops me another note. I quicken my pace to pick it up again. The words, they bring a thrill into my being. His note says “॰ ॰ ॰ ये प्यार हमारा हमेशा रहेगा॰ ॰ ॰”. A feeling of love with a touch of divinity, steals through the labyrinths of the mind. And the heart knows, this is one promise that is forever. The journey, the companionship, the melody – nothing much more remains to be desired in life. The ‘Fiddler’ is walking ahead of me. All I know now is that I follow him. He has this thing slung on his shoulder. There is music and there is a song, wafting in from practically everything, every person we meet and see on this trek. And the images in the mind only get stronger.

ले कर दिल का इकतारा
बस्ती बस्ती पर्वत पर्वत
गाता जाये बंजारा

गाता जाये बंजारा

[SK – The words of this song say it all, I will add no more. Except that, Atul ji, I have run out of hats to doff at your achievements.]

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 10
———————————————————————-

Congratulations Atul ji for this unparalleled effort of ten thousand posts. You are truly an inspiration! We have a lot to learn from you and Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all that you do

Today, I write this post with a gamut of emotions running through my mind. I still remember the year was 2008. A team of music lovers including me had got together and launched the website on www.geetadutt.com It had been a labour of love for us to make a digital temple dedicated to our beloved singer. We had spent countless hours discussing over the internet on what all should be put on the website and then doing the needful to make it happen. Our small team was very dedicated and the beauty of all of it was that we all had never met till then.

Among the sections lyrics was one area where we had to put considerable amount of effort as no major reference was available for the same other than the ITRANS song book (ISB) made collaboration of many RMIMers since 1995 (The “Indian languages TRANSliteration” (ITRANS) is an ASCII transliteration scheme for Indic scripts particularly for Devanagari script). Though it had many songs, the format wasn’t something that could be directly used by the common public and many of her rare song lyrics were not available on it. Lots of effort had to be done to listen to Geeta ji’s songs by the team in charge for the lyrics. Repeated listenings were required for getting the words just right for some songs as the audio quality available for a few left something to be desired.

Later that year after the site launch, I came to know of an effort being done to put together lyrics of Hindi film songs on an innocuous blog called Atul’s Song A Day thanks to an internet search. I liked the way the song lyrics were being presented and that is how I was introduced to Atul ji. Then later a search for list of hit songs in Binaca Geetmala songs led me there again. Sometime later a post on Greta’s blog Memsaab Story led me back to it and this return to the blog started happening more frequently for me. (It was a lot later that I “formally” got introduced to him via mail thanks to Arunkumar Deshmukh ji). At some point of time, I had subscribed to the blog’s RSS feed and I started getting glimpses into the dedication of Atul ji. Thanks to encouragement by fellow Atulites I started writing a bit as guest posts and my association has only gone deeper (no going back now! Aapka peechha nahin chhodenge Atul ji!!).

In many ways I found a kindred soul in Atul ji (as if lost in the proverbial Kumbh Mela!). Having worked personally on four websites and now working on the fifth one (three of them single handedly) I am in a position to understand how much efforts the job requires. One has to work on both the technical as well as content related aspects which is quite a complicated task. It includes maintenance of the pages, looks of the blog, moderating the comments, replying to people’s messages, coordinating with people for information, making lists, classifying and organising things, planning, doing your own research for articles, double or triple cross checking the information and being under the scanner at all times among other things. Many times the job can be strenuous particularly when officio-personal requirements demand your attention, putting pressure on the time duration available to you and sometimes some events make you feel as if its a thankless job in many ways. One has to dig deep into ones internal resources to come out on top of all these situations. Atul ji has been doing all this service with a smile for nearly nine years now. Its only words and words are all I have to say – thanks to Atul ji for doing all this for lovers of Hindi film music dedicatedly. Will probably never be able to thank him enough for the humongous efforts he puts on a regular basis on the posts that appear on the blog.

As I interacted with Atul ji more and more over time, I realised how we are so similar in many other ways – background, work profile, approach towards things, attention to detail and above all fascination for the same type of artists and songs! Even though we are yet to meet physically till date, it does not feel like that. He is always available to discuss things and He has shown huge amount of patience during discussions whether they be via mail or messages on social media or SMS. Over the years, Atul’s song a day friends have become a family that shares everything and really cares about each other. All this was possible thanks to Atul ji’s efforts and interactions with everyone. He is responsible for nurturing the seed that has become a huge tree now and is growing rapidly. Indeed, such relationships and the joy they bring is what one searches for everywhere in the world (Dhoondhta Hoon Har Jagah!). Atul ji has earned lots of respect (Izzat) with everything he does and is a great mentor for the ASAD family. I am sure this effort will only go from strength to strength in his capable hands. May God bless him and all of us as we continue this journey together for decades to come. I hope to see more like minded people join the “karwan” started by our lone ranger Atul ji (Akele Chale The Woh… Na Aaye Akele!).

Now coming to the song post today which I am making in his honour to commemorate the personal milestone of ten thousand posts he has achieved on the post single handedly. It is a very rare song which I am extremely fond of. It had originally come into my collection through a share of Dr ML Kapur ji of Virginia who is another great music lover whom I hope to meet one day!

The song is from the movie ‘Izzat’ (1952). This was a social movie made by Taimur Art Productions, Mumbai. It was produced and directed by Taimur Behramshah. The cast of the movie included Nirupa Roy, Amarnath, Manorama, Agha, Rajni, Jeevan, Veera, P Kailash, Pesi Patel, Ramesh Thakur, Baby Kalpana, Pyaare and Nazira. The music for the movie was composed by one of my favourites Bulo C Rani. It is sung by the honey voiced Ghulam Mustafa Durrani (GM Durrani). Raja Mehdi Ali Khan has written lovely lyrics for the song and I count it one of the best works of the trio. The movie print is unfortunately not available as I would have loved to see its picturisation. I would like to think that it would have been picturised on Agha for whom G M Durrani has sung comic songs earlier (or Jeevan?). Hope one day the movie will turn up or someone who has seen the movie will throw more light on it.

On one hand, there is a touch of comedy in the song (mixed with sarcasm as a subtext) while on the other hand, it has many layers of emotion as one treads in the search for happiness, contentment and escape from the existential difficulties that any regular day presents. The song is in a way, a tongue-in-cheek prayer to the Almighty who is not seen and in whose existence the person praying wants to believe in the hope that He will enlighten the path leading to the solution for all the ills affecting his day to day life.

Before going on to the lyrics, I once again thank Atul ji (and indeed all fellow Atulites) for all that you have come to mean for me. Indeed, I was searching for friendships like yours all everywhere!

Here’s the beautiful and very rare song for your listening pleasure.


Song – Dhoondhta Hoon Har Jagah (Izzat) (1952) Singers – GM Durrani, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

dhoondhta hoon
hoooon
dhoondhta hoon har jagah
arre kahin nahin tera pata
humen na sata
maalik bata …
meri khata

haaye
gareebon ke bhagwan
haaye
gareebon ke bhagwan

teri ameeron pe nazar hai
gareebon ke bhagwan
teri ameeron pe nazar hai
palat kar dekh idhar
tera dhyan
tera dhyan
tera dhyan kidhar hai
palat kar dekh idhar
tera dhyan

tera dhyan kidhar hai
gareebon ke bhagwan

duniya ko dete ho chhapar phaad ke bhagwan ji
hum pe bhi to meherbani karo shiriman ji
kabhi na humse poochcha mister
teri kya khabar hai
palat kar dekh idhar
tera dhyan

tera dhyan kidhar hai
gareebon ke bhagwan
haaye
gareebon ke bhagwan

museebaton ke bojh se chakra gaya mera sar hai
palat kar dekh idhar
tera dhyan
tera dhyan
tera dhyan kidhar hai
gareebon ke bhagwan
haaye gareebon ke bhagwan
teri ameeron pe nazar hai
gareebon ke bhagwan
teri ameeron pe nazar hai

ढ़ूँढ़ता हूँ
हूँSSSS
ढ़ूँढ़ता हूँ हर जगह
अरे कहीं नहीं तेरा पता
हमें ना सता
मालिक बता …
मेरी ख़ता

हाय गरीबों के भगवान
हाय गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है
गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है

पलट कर देख इधर

तेरा ध्यान किधर है
पलट कर देख इधर
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान किधर है
गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है

दुनिया को देते हो छप्पर फाड़ के भगवान जी
हम पे भी तो मेहरबानी करो शिरीमान जी
कभी ना हमसे पूछा मिस्टर, तेरी क्या खबर है
पलट कर देख इधर
तेरा ध्यान

तेरा ध्यान किधर है
गरीबों के भगवान
हाय

सबकी जेब गर्म गर्म मेरी जेब बर्फ
तेरे कारोबार में कुछ रह गई कसर है
पलट कर देख इधर
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान किधर है
गरीबों के भगवान
हाय, गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है

किसी को दी नौकरी
किसी को लखपति छोकरी
हमारे सर पे क्यों रख दी है मुसीबतों की टोकरी
मुसीबतों के बोझ से चकरा गया मेरा सर है
पलट कर देख इधर
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान
तेरा ध्यान किधर है
गरीबों के भगवान
हाय गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है
गरीबों के भगवान
तेरी अमीरों पे नज़र है

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 9
——————————————————————–

I am an Atulite and I am proud of it. It is an honor to be associated with a blog that drips pure love of music. Like almost all Indians I love Hindi film music. But I cannot claim to be knowledgeable about it. I do know many songs but that is not a qualification. There are thousands of songs out there, many of which have fallen into oblivion. It is the die-hard music lovers that keep track of these songs and chase them with an assiduity that would make Sherlock Holmes feel jealous.

I am amazed when some of my friends are able to name the movie, singer, lyricist and music director as soon as the song is mentioned. Some Atulites could also tell you charming little stories behind the making of each song. Delving here, I have discovered gorgeous songs that not much known but are as precious as Koh-i-Noor.

It is all kudos to Atul who has, with his magnetic personality, been able to draw so many music lovers into a tight community called Atulites. Congratulations to Atul for the personal landmark of 10000 individual postings. I know the people here, and I know this is merely a stepping stone for many more such achievements.

I have sneaked in newer songs on the blog, often from the current year, to even out the pre-70s bias that this blog has. It is a bias that is perfectly understandable if you listen to the quality of early songs. Nothing that is created now comes close to the kind of music that was once created. Yet, some of the newer songs have a beautiful melody that lingers in your mind.

A little while back some of my friends played a game on facebook where you had to mention the movie you liked best from the year you were born till the current time. Almost all my friends felt they would not be able to name a movie after the 80s. Surprisingly, there was at least one movie per year that qualified to be listed as a good movie. Good movies are still being made and nice music is still being composed. We still have singers who bring a lot of feeling to their songs and lyrics that convey a depth of feeling.

‘Wake Up Sid’ is a 2009 movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma. It is an odd pair. Ranbir Kapoor is a popular sweetheart and Konkana is an art house favorite. Yet they came together in this quirky film that worked on many levels. As the title of the movie shows, it is primarily about a spoilt rich boy who learns to make his way in the world. It is also about a small town girl who learns how to survive in a big city. Even though she is very sure of what she wants in life, she finds it hard to reconcile with the fact that she has fallen for a younger man.

Time was when songs were sung by the hero and heroine running around in pleasant locales. Now cinema has taken a more realistic turn and songs are more often in the background, depicting the mood of actors. This song is also played in background and has the same feel as a song sung by a wandering mendicant in earlier films.


Song – O Re Manwa Tu To Baawra Hai (Wake Up Sid) (2009) Singers – Kavita Seth, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Chorus 

Lyrics

o re manwa tu toh baawra hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai baawre
kyon dikhaye sapne tu sotey jaagte
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

dil me bole koi iktara iktara
dil me bole koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke
koi main kahaani
poori kahaani hai kya
kise hai pata
main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
rut hai yeh do pal ki ya
rahegi sadaa

kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

ओ रे मनवा तू तो बावरा है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है बावरे
क्यों दिखाये सपने तू सोते जागते
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ
देख ना सकूँ

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा

दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

सुन रही हूँ सुध बुध खोके
कोई मैं कहानी
पूरी कहानी है क्या
किसे है पता
मैं तो किसि की होके ये भी ना जानी
रुत है ये दो पल की या
रहेगी सदा

किसे है पता
किसे है पता
किसे है पता

जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
——————————————————————–

Mukesh and His Co-Singers – 3
—————————————-

The thought had crossed my mind a few months back. To calculate the sum of all the posts of contributors and subtract it from the grand total which would have given the obvious number. A number big enough to just admire, thank and congratulate with high gratitude. Thankfully, the pen and paper (and well a calculator) did not meet and so we had Sudhir ji planning his modus-operandi.

Else who knows, I would have written a common mail to both which I usually do and spoiled all the fun.

I got to know of Sudhir ji’s plans which he told me in person when I met him for a short visit to his house. Now wait. Isn’t our meeting a celebration to write a post? Yes indeed, but that shall wait for another day.

This post is for Atul ji. To thank him for this wonderful platform that has brought so many like-minded people together. As I write this statement, I have the proof of this togetherness and oneness even when we may not have met each other. When I met Sudhir ji for the first time it was as if we knew each other for decades. The talks directly shifted to songs and we were both in our comfort zone.

I have been fond of old Hindi songs of 40’s and 50’s for a long time. Before the internet era, it was collection of articles, audio cassettes etc. With the advent of internet, all of us were exposed to a wide range of information. This blog was not exactly the first of its kind that I came across. I had downloaded many mp3 songs from different sites. They are in hundreds. However further search and surfing inevitably led me to this blog and there has been no looking back. I first started interacting by making comments, corrections etc. Then there was an urge to send lyrics and finally to qualify as a post contributor. The final step did take me quite a while. My first write-up was not up to the mark as it was some absurd story. I later realised that writing on artists anniversaries and special articles related to the song make more sense. Sudhir ji’s series on Mukesh opened a whole lot of possibilities and thus, I started two series of Mukesh which I hope to continue as long as his songs are available to be posted.

This blog will, in all probability, remain the only reliable source of correct info of HFM songs in such huge numbers and of almost all artists. I am very much certain of it. We have some of the best contributors with very vast knowledge and experience of this hobby. After reading their posts, we imagine ourselves in the midst of our favourite artists. Such is the effect of this blog on our lives.

Among the many selfless deeds of Atul ji, is the fact that contributor’s names are prominently displayed and acknowledged on his blog. That we can write so freely and put our thoughts on the blog is really a wonderful experience. I have sent quite a few posts at the eleventh hour. I am even embarrassed to write that a couple of posts were sent without the lyrics etc. But his large heartedness ensures that the post is complete in all respects. I can’t imagine doing even 1% of what he does day in and day out.

For this post, I have taken the liberty of introducing a new film on the blog. It’s a 1973 released film called ‘Aangan’. Here are the details of the film.

The present song is the ONLY duet featuring Sulakshana Pandit with Mukesh. Sonik-Omi are the composers and the lyrics are by Omkar Verma.  Mukesh Geetkosh attributes the lyrics to Indeewar, but then as always, I sought the help of Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji, who himself revealed the correction.

I wrote a mail at 8:15 pm to him seeking his help in confirming the uniqueness of the duet and in some two hours we had exchanged quite a few mails regarding the song, lyric writer etc. His passion for correct information and continuous help till the doubts are cleared is something to be admired. I will always remain hugely indebted to him.

On behalf of Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji and myself, I once again congratulate and thank Atul ji for attaining this monumental 10k feat and making us come closer to so many friends with a common wavelength.

One last thing before I close the post. What is the message that we want to convey to Atul ji as far as our support, help and gratitude for this hobby is concerned? Well listen to the first few lines of the song. And agree with me.


Song – Jab Talak Aasmaan Pe Sitaare Rahenge (Aangan) (1973) Singer – Mukesh, Sulakashna Pandit, Lyrics – Omkar Verma, MD – Sonik Omi
Mukesh + Sulakshana Pandit

Lyrics

jab talak aasmaan pe sitaare rahenge
jab talak aasmaan pe sitaare rahenge
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jaan se bhi hamein aap pyaare rahenge
jaan se bhi hamein aap pyaare rahenge 
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumaaree rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumaaree rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain

chanda hai tu main chakori
ho saath apna puraana
ooo baahon mein aa jaa tu gori
ho main hoon tera deewaana  
dil machal gaya
kya jaadoo chal gaya
ab kunwaare na aramaan hamaare rahenge 
ab kunwaare na aramaan hamaare rahenge 
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain

mehka hai tujhse hi gulshan 
ho tu hai kaliyon ki rani
tu jo kahe to luṭa doon
ho tujhpe main zindagani
kya nikhaar hai
haseen bahaar hai
hamase mehke sadaa yeh nazaare rahenge 
hamase mehke sadaa yeh nazaare rahenge 
hum tumaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 7
——————————————————————–

Sudhir ji, got in touch with us Atulwaasis and told us that there is a HUGE milestone coming up on the blog.

I had no clue that it was this huge. With my little knowledge of maths, I did some calculation and it works to an average of around 3 posts a day for the last 9 years. If that just seems like a number to you – you either do not understand hard work when you see it, or you are just a passer by seeing this blog for the first time.

While I still wonder how it is even possible to have such commitment and endurance I am reminded of what Atul ji often tells us – this is a “Labour of Love”. And then it all falls in place and makes so much sense. Atul ji has been a beacon of light, a guru, a nostalgia maker, the man who got all us crazy Atulwaasis together.

While it might seem to a passer by having a look at the blog that it is just a place for a bunch of old hindi songs aficionados, what Atul ji, Sudhir Ji, Arun ji et al are doing is to make sure that knowledge of old hindi songs is preserved for eternity. This in itself is one of the biggest achievements of Atul ji.

He is no less than a Mahendra Singh Dhoni for all of us; who has always kept his cool, given any situation.

An amazing human being who happens to manage work / home / his pets and his blog with equal aplomb. How all these stalwarts manage their time so effectively and beautifully has always fascinated me.

I am one of those Atulwaasis, who has not really contributed much to the blog except for a handful of posts and being part of Project YIPPEEEE!! I was looking for a song that kind of resonates what the blog, Atul ji and Atulwaasis mean to me, and I wanted a song that was full of emotions and feelings and rendered beautifully. That got me to this song that we at home listen to very often. Most of the time it is the first song that gets played when we get into the car. And every time one listens to it, we are bound to be filled with emotions. My wife is a big Sonu Nigam fan and pretty much every time she listens to this song, she is in tears.

This is not an old song, what this blog is all about, but we have posted songs that are new and still good to listen to. One of the singers of today who are really good and is a treat to listen to is none other than Sonu Nigam. Amazing talent and is just a sheer pleasure to listen to him sing.

This particular song is from a remake of an Amitabh Bachchan movie called ‘Agneepath’ (1990). The newer version starred Hrithik Roshan in the role played by Amitabh. For some reason, Hrithik’s mother keeps his sister away from him for a long time and when she is a teenager, the heroine, Priyanka Chopra gets him to meet her for his birthday, and the brother gets so emotional that tries to express his feelings of love and affection for his sister through this song.

I am sure I have not been able to express my love for this extended family of mine. So let me say, thank you Atul ji for letting us be part of the family and be part of this wonderful journey you are taking us on.

Please sit back and enjoy this beautiful song… we love you Atul ji!


Song – Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin Baaki (Agneepath) (2012) Singers – Sonu Nigam, Lyrics – Amitabh Bhattacharya, MD – Ajay-Atul
Chorus

Lyrics

abhi..
mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi
jagi..
dhadkan nayi
jaana zinda hoon main toh abhi
kuch aisi lagan iss lamhe mein hai
yeh lamha kahaan tha meraaa
ab hai saamne
isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa
khushiyaan choom loon
yaa ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa

ho.. abhi mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi

ho… dhoop mein jalte hue tan ko
chhaaya pedh ki mil gayi
roothe bacche ki hansi jaise
phuslaane se phir khil gayi
kuch aisa hee ab mehsoos dil ko ho raha hai
barson ke puraane zakhmn pe marham laga sa hai
kuch aisa reham
iss lamhe mein hai
ye lamha kahaan tha meraa
ab hai saamne.. isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara
khushiyaan choom loon
ya ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara

अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी
जगी
धड़कन नई
जाना ज़िंदा हूँ मैं तो अभी
कुछ ऐसी लगन
लम्हे में है
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

हो॰॰॰ अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी

हो॰॰॰ धूप में जलते हुये तन को
छाया पेड़ की मिल गई
रूठे बच्चे की हंसी जैसे
फुसलाने से फिर खिल गई
कुछ ऐसा ही अब महसूस दिल को हो रहा है
बरसों के पुराने ज़ख़्मों पे मरहम लगा सा है
कुछ ऐसा रहम
इस लम्हे में
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 6
——————————————————————–

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Mubaarak Ho. . .

At the very outset, I must congratulate our Leader or Sutradhar as I like to call him or Ranchi Wala Gaanewala as Sudhir ji once called him (he is no longer in Ranchi but the name stays) on reaching a very important milestone- 10000 songs, imagine it is TEN THOUSAND posts by a single person. For this we should all give a collective YYIIPPEEEE!!!! Mubarak Ho! Mubarak Ho!

This must be a record of sorts where a blog has survived this looong and its karta-dharta has sooo many posts to his credit. And to think that this blog doesn’t make any comments or remarks on any person, place, caste, religion etc. the closest we come to religion is when a bhajan or qawwali is posted. Three cheers to that!

I would love to learn from our dear Atul ji how he manages his time. I know for sure that he has to look after his pets, home and job along with reading up and doing research for and about the songs that he intends to post here in the blog. Also, he has the added task of enduring pests like me who send contribution at the nth hour. Only I know the number of times I might have messaged him or called him to draw his attention to a mail that I had sent him, after discovering a birth date or death anniversary around one o’clock (day-time 😉), then looking for a song, writing a post, reading the whole thing at least once before I send it; all this would take me an hour or two; by which time it will be 4 in the afternoon; by when (I am certain) Atul ji would have had his stock of posts ready for the day; but the angel that he is he will still try his level best to accommodate this late entry of mine. Thank you Atul ji for reigniting the writing bug in me after possibly 20 years of inaction.

I am sure more organised people like Guru ji, Maha Guru ji, Sudhir ji and also all the regulars who send contributions; send their posts and farmaishes well in advance so that Atul ji finds time to decide where to fit in that particular post or check the lyrics for correctness etc. I am sure he does this even after 13k+ songs have been posted and all his contributors are sticklers for correct details about the songs they send and the lyrics that go with it. This blog is the only place in the cyber world where we find songs with complete and correct lyrics in addition to a little knowledge about the songs or the movie or the picturization etc. And what I admire most about his style is he is ready to admit when he has not heard a particular note or syllable. He admits when he cannot recognise an artist. He does not show an “I know everything” attitude. Hats off to you Atul ji.

You are a true leader in the sense that after I started following the blog I have started paying attention to the words, music, lyricist etc. connected with songs. Till then I used to be a slave of the song, only!!! I can show many songs where I used to sing them along with whatever I thought was the right words. The most recent example of me, finding myself wrong being,when I heard this ever favourite song of mine from Navrang – “Aadha Hain Chandrama“. I used to sing it as “Sur aadha hain saamne baadha” (God alone knows why I thought those were the words). Recently when I heard the song again I realised that it is “Sur aadha hi shaam ne saadha”. I don’t want to give more examples and make this post extra-long. Thank you Atul ji, for making me an attentive listener. Now there is only one thing left for me to-do; visit him in his den and see him in action as I am sure many in this Atuldom have had the chance to.

We all know that before he began Atulsongaday our “fearless leader” (again borrowing a term that Sudhir ji uses for our Sutradhar) had started a blog on another pet passion of his, and that is why he is SQUARECUT ATUL. I am not sure if he himself was ever a cricketer but he is an avid follower of the game and that is another passion that many of us Atulites share with him. And with it being the IPL season the cricket bug is in the air. I think the song with this post I ideal for the occasion. It is from the 2007 release ‘Hattrick’ which is produced by UTV Movies and directed by Milan Luthria. It has a non-starry cast of Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar, Danny and Kunal Kapoor with Rimi Sen. It showed the life of cricket crazy characters one of whom was himself an ex-cricketer (Danny). It has Sandeep Patil, Harsha Bhogle and Gautam Bhimani (the commentator) making guest appearances. The movie had Mayur Puri, Amit Khanna, Vishal Dadlani & Ashish Pandit as lyricists and Pritam Chakravarty as the music director. Today’s song is by Mayur Puri and Usha Iyer (that was what she was when she debuted and later on became Uthup) with Earl Edgar D’Souza. The song appears towards the end of the movie and we have the whole cast grooving in the party mood with Bhogle, Bhimani,John Abraham and Usha Uthup joining the fun.

Let’s celebrate our leader’s looooong innings. As the cricket commentators used to say once upon a time “over to the stadium for the live relay of the match” I say “over to the song now.”


Song – Run To Banega Par Wicket Bachaa (Hattrick) (2007) Singer – Usha Uthup, Lyrics – Mayur Puri, MD – Preetam

(lots of English words by Earl Edgar)

apni kismat ka tu hi god
zindagi hai baayees gaj ki daud
bat ko zameen se rakh chipka
run to banega par wicket bacha
ye dekh aayi next ball
kya hai tera call
khelega uthake ab tu banega wall
zara cut to laga
dekho hota hai kya
run to banega par wicket bacha

dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas thats the way to play
dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas thats the way to play

(again lots of English words)

silly point pe hai life latki
sab ki nigaahen tujh pe hai atki
tujhe mile mauka
tu laga le choka
run to banega par wicket bacha
sabko hai doubt
tu hai hone wala out
beat jo hua toh sabhi karenge shout
koi gap dhoond kar saare fielder bhaga
run to banega par  wicket bacha

dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas thats the way to play
dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas thats the way to play

(again Earl Edgar)

khel ye nahi hai ye hai jung mere bhai
aaj tu dikha de tere rang mere bhai
dang reh jaaye sabhi dekh tera hausla
run to banega par wicket bacha
chaahe right chaahe aaye googly
tujpe uthe na kabhi koi ungali
bas score ko badha
bina liye khatra
run to banega par  wicket bacha

dil se
shout India
dil se
come on India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas thats the way to play
dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas that the way to play
dil se
shout India
dil se
shout India
dil se jeet le dilko
bas that the way to play

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 5
——————————————————————–

Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog – 19
————————————————————————-

First, let me congratulate our leader of this Blog for the unsurpassed feat of posting so many songs in one Blog.  I had the rare opportunity to meet him personally in our ‘MumbAtulite’ meet.  My impression is that he does not speak much but when he does, he speaks straight and to the point. (You cricketers use the phrase ‘with the straight bat’, right?)  He is also ‘famous’, or rather ‘infamous’ (pardon me for using the word, but I am using it without any negative shade to it), for not attending most of the Atulite meets.  We all very well know that he plans very much to attend, but his work schedule does not allow him to do so and has to cancel at the last moment.

My selection of today’s song, according to me, is the wish of all us Atulites represented by the first line (asthaayi) of this song by Lata ji, that Atul bhai is most welcome even as a surprise visit.

chaahe chori chori aao
chaahe chhup chhup aao
par ham ko ATUL ji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milna

“Baansariya” (1949) is a Nigaristaan Films Production movie.  It is directed by Ram Narayan Dave. The movie had Ram Singh, Geeta Bali, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok etc in it.

Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by the dual MDs, Husnlal Bhagatram.

Since I do not have HFGK handy here in US, I am unable to state how many songs this film had but according to ‘Lata Samagra’, there were at least four Lata’s solos and all of them are yet to be discussed on our musical Blog, and this is the first one out of them.
[Ed Note: As per Geet Kosh, there are 8 songs in this film; 4 are Lata ji solos, 2 are solos by Geeta Roy, one solo by Rafi Sb and one solo by SD Batish.]

Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to say how and on whom this song is picturised.  I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. The tune will remind many of so many other songs by the same MDs.  I am also sure that our own Nitinbhai will comment certainly about their recognizable stereo type style.

Now we look forward to the next 10K from Atul ji.


Song – Chaahe Chori Chori Aao Chaahe Chhup Chhup Aao (Baansariya) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Mulkhraj Bhakri, MD – Huanlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

chaahe chori chori aao
chaahe chhup chhup aao
par ham ko piyaa ji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milna
chaahe chori chori aao
chaahe chhup chhup aao
par ham ko piyaa ji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milna
 
jaadoo bhare nainon mein
main piyaji hoon kho gayee
sara jag chhod ke main ek teri ho gayee
ek teri ho gayee
jaadoo bhare nainon mein
main piyaji hoon kho gayee
sara jag chhod ke main ek teri ho gayee
ek teri ho gayee
duniya ki nazaron se door milna
par ham ko piyaaji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milana
chaahe chori chori aao
chaahe chhup chhup aao
par ham ko piyaa ji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milna
 
haal tumhe aaj apne dil ka sunana hai
aana dekhbhaal ke bedard zamana
bedard zamana hai
haal tumhe aaj apne dil ka sunana hai
aana dekhbhaal ke bedard zamana
bedard zamana hai
duniya ki nazaron se door milna
par ham ko piyaaji jaroor milana
ho jaroor milana
chaahe chori chori aao
chaahe chhup chhup aao
par ham ko piyaa ji jaroor milna
ho jaroor milna

चाहे चोरी चोरी आओ
चाहे छुप छुप आओ
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना
चाहे चोरी चोरी आओ
चाहे छुप छुप आओ
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना

जादू भरे नैनों में
मैं पीया जी हूँ खो गई
सारा जग छोड़ के मैं एक तेरी हो गई
एक तेरी हो गई
जादू भरे नैनों में
मैं पीया जी हूँ खो गई
सारा जग छोड़ के मैं एक तेरी हो गई
एक तेरी हो गई
दुनिया की नज़रों से दूर मिलना
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना
चाहे चोरी चोरी आओ
चाहे छुप छुप आओ
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना

हाल तुम्हें आज अपने दिल का सुनाना है
आना देखभाल के बेदर्द ज़माना है
बेदर्द ज़माना है
हाल तुम्हें आज अपने दिल का सुनाना है
आना देखभाल के बेदर्द ज़माना है
बेदर्द ज़माना है
दुनिया की नज़रों से दूर मिलना
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना
चाहे चोरी चोरी आओ
चाहे छुप छुप आओ
पर हमको पिया जी जरूर मिलना
हो जरूर मिलना

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
——————————————————————–

कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन ।
मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि ।।
Karmanye aadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachan
Ma karmaphalheturbhu maate sangostavakarmani

[You have a right to perform your duties but without any expectation.  You have no right to the fruits of your works. Let yourselves be not attached to inaction.]

I used to remember this shloka (verses) during the telecasting of ‘Mahabharat’ on TV. In the recent period, I have once again started recalling this shloka as I find this shloka apt for Atul ji! He has been doing his karma (duties) of posting Hindi film and non-film songs faithfully since the inception of the Blog on July 19, 2008 without expectation of any kind of rewards.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
——————————————————————–

mann panchhi albela
taaron ki nagri mein jaaye

If we replace the word ‘taaron’ with the word ‘gaanon’, it would be apt for this blog. Don’t we all freely wander in this cyber world of songs, lyrics and the stories behind them, as we browse the pages on Atul-Song-A-Day.

Coming to the song itself, this is one of the three Lata gems from ‘Mad Bhare Nain’ (1955). The other two are the romantic numbers “Aa Palkon Mein Aa” and the bhajan “Mo Se Saanchi Kaho Banwaari”.
