Yesterday, 13th August was the birthday of Vijayantimala, as she turns 81.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful song performed by her, from the film ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964). The film is from the banner of Anjali Pictures of Madras, and is produced by Adi Narayan Rao. The film is directed by Inder Raj Anand. The songs in this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri, and the music is by Adi Narayan Rao. The screenplay of this film is adapted by Inder Raj Anand, from one of the popular novels of Gulshan Nanda – ‘Andhere Chiraagh’.

The star cast of the film includes Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Vijayanthimala, Anjali Devi, Manoj Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Kanchanmala, Kanhaiyalal, Mukri, Raju (Child Artiste), Shubha Khote, Mehmood.

The storyline of the film involves a situation wherein the child of the younger brother and his wife (roles played by Manoj Kumar and Vijayantimala), under certain family circumstances, is adopted by the elder brother and his wife (roles played by Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy). Although they live together, the younger sister in law is forbidden to call her own child, as her child. As the story progresses, the matters are sorted out. This song is one of the interim situations where the child (role played by Master Raju), calls his real mother as ‘Maa‘ for the first time. The song depicts the happiness and ecstasy expressed by the mother. The song is beautifully performed by Vijayantimala.

The lyrics of this song are provided by Prakash ji. This song used to be a popular one during the radio listening days. Thanks to Prakash ji, for reviving this melodious memory.

Greetings to Vijayantmala ji, on her birthday, and best wishes for many a happy and healthy returns of this day.

“Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) was directed by Datta Dharmadhikaari for Sudarshan Chitra, Bombay. The mythological movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Mahipal, Sulochana, Shahu Modak, Maruti, Vasant Rao Pahalwan, Paresh, Sheela Naik, Malay Sarkar, K Shankar, Shubhangi, Rajni, Jagdish Kamal, Kundan, Nirmal Kumar, S Prakash, Ganpat Rao, Krisnkant etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it. It appears that each and every song in this movie was a female solo sung by Asha Bhonsle.

Here is the first song from “Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. It appears to me that this song(as well as other songs of the movie) was picturised on Nalini Jaiwant.

With this song, “Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Mere roop ka jawaab tere paas (Sudarshan Chakra)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gopal Singh Nepali, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas
tere pyaar ka jawaab mere paaaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas
tere pyaar ka jawaab mere paaaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas

aankhon mein pyaar leke mile mose saajna
aankhon mein pyaar leke mile mose saajna
dil maine de hi diya
mujhe lage laaj naa
aurat hoon ghaayal karoon
aurat hoon ghayal karoon
nainon ke baan se
dil do to pyaar karoon
main dil-o-jaan se
balamwaa mujkho thhi teri talaash
balamwaa mujkho thhi teri talaash
mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas
tere pyaar ka jawaab mere paaaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas

meri to umr kati sadaa naach rang mein
meri to umr kati sadaa naach rang mein
bin maange pyaar mila aaj tere sang mein
jhoothe taareefen kare
jhoothe taareefen kare
apnon se door hoon
kisi ki hoon ya na hoon teri zaroor hoon
balamwaa tu hi jawaani ki aag
balamwwaa tu hi jawaani ki aag
mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas
tere pyaar ka jawaab mere paaaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas

Saga Of Sleepless Nights -1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.

The level and quality of the anxieties may be different, but yes, all of us have experienced such flavors of anxieties, that have kept us awake when we should not have been. Sleep is such a dear and an essential passage, without which our very survival is threatened. And yet, there are compulsions of overriding emotions that sometimes force us to forsake even this essential commodity.

Sometimes we are sleepless because we are too sad; sometimes we are sleepless because we are too happy; and then again, sometimes we are sleepless for we are not sure. And mostly, we are sleepless when we are in love. Sometimes it is because we are agonized over the apparent cruelties of the person we love. And sometimes we are sleepless because we are ecstatic for the messages and favors of love received. And then there are uncertainties that keep gnawing us from the inside – uncertainties of the type that say “he loves me, he loves me not”, or “will I meet her tomorrow again?”.

Such vagaries of love take over the reins of the mind. The body discounts, nay forsakes, the fatigue of the day. The eyes may be clamoring for some rest, but the mind insists on keeping awake. For some reasons, it is the comfort and the pleasure of being alone in the silences of the night. For some other reasons, it is the only time one may have of a private expression of personal sadnesses. Or the only time of private tribulations of anxieties, as one waits for an arrival or a happening. The newly-father-to-be is seen pacing outside the delivery room, sleepless, anxiously awaiting to hear the sounds of the outcome 🙂 (pun intended). It is interesting to recall; of all the childbirth scenes picturized in the Hindi Cinema, the most such scenes are happening in the night. More sleeplessness for all.

Another creature of sleeplessness is – yes, it is the poet. Ask any poet about sleepless nights, and you will be handed over a few sample verses immediately. Long nights and poets have an association that predates even history. A sleepless mind, of the creative type, is sure to string together some words and make a song, eulogizing all the characteristics and the experiences of a sleepless night. Every poet of note, and also those not of note, have all penned verses about tackling sleeplessness – some may enjoy it, others may bemoan it, but none can ignore it or overlook it. A number of sonnets by Shakespeare touch upon this subject of sleeplessness; I shall try to bring that into one of this series.

And Hindi cinema. Of course, yes. Scores of situations where one comes across songs and verses that tell the stories about sleepless nights. The poets and the composers have labored hard to bring us some very beautiful songs that are driven by lack of any comfortable rest. Ah yes, a number of such songs will immediately come to mind. In this series, my effort is to present some real wonderful, but obscure gems that talk about the loneliness of sleepless nights, or yes, even otherwise. What I mean by ‘otherwise’ is the songs that are the tellings about the sleeplessness by one person to the other. Eg. “Ibtidaa e Ishq Mein Hum Saari Raat Jaage. . .” (‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’, 1962) or “Mein Kyaa Kahoon Raat Ki Baat Sakhi Ri” (‘Tilasmi Duniya’, 1946). So yes, we shall be meeting some very familiar songs, and some lost memories in this series.

Today’s song is from an as yet unrepresented film on our blog. The film is ‘Talwaar Ka Dhani’ from 1956. The song is penned by Gopal Singh Nepali, and the music is from the mind of the magic melody maker – Chitragupt. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. Earlier today, Atul ji has an observation about GS Nepali – Chitragupt – Asha Bhosle combination that has come together to create some very memorable songs in the 1950s. This song is one of their best, I must say.

It is GS Nepali’s birth anniversary today (11th August). A lot has already been written about this poet, by me and by Atul ji in earlier posts – “Hum The Intezaar Mein, Ghaayal Tere Pyar Mein” (‘Sultanat’, 1954), and “Jab Sur Alag Ho Saaz Se” (‘Sati Madalsa’, 1955). So I will not repair to the details herein, and will move on with a grand salute to this lesser known poet, who has recently clocked a century of posts on our blog.

The song – well something needs to be said about it. I was actually searching for a song for GS Nepali Sb’s anniversary. In my searches, I came across the film ‘Talwaar Ka Dhani’ of 1956. As has happened so many times before, the songs of this film are sitting with me but I have not heard them. Or not all of them. As I played this song, getting to hear it for the first time, I was simply bowled over. I played it again and again, but I simply do not seem to be getting enough of it into myself. Simply said, this song is a beauty – a beauty of soft melodious expression of some very lovely and meaningful poetry. This song simply is not going away from the mind. The theme being sleepless nights, I then just got hooked on to initiate this series today, with this song – a series that I have been contemplating for more than a year now. The wait simply has been that I have still to fully plan and chalk out the series. But the encounter with this song last night just fast forwarded the decision for me. One song of this film is already posted here on our blog. This is the second song to find its place here.

Listen to this lovely beautiful aria. The starting bars themselves, even before the words start, have such a soothing comforting effect on the mind. I am sure you will fall in love, as I have. And then the voice comes along, with the words. Asha ji is trying to be soft, but simply cannot keep out the playful expectations, that make the sound of this song so cute and endearing. Let me stop my words and let you click the play. And be in love, all over again.

[Ed Note: Ah yes, one more ‘Raja’ song. 🙂 ]

Song – Neend Na Aaye Raja, Tum Yaad Aaye  (Talwar Ka Dhani) (1956) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Gopal Singh Nepali, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

neend na aaye raja
tum yaad aaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye. . .
neend na aaye raja

laakhon sitaare
dilkash nazaare
phir bhi kami hai piya
bina tumhaare
nazron mein tum ho to
chaand na bhaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aaye raja

dil nahin bas mein
pyaar nas nas mein
neend chura ke meri
khaao na kasmen
dil nahin bas mein
pyaar nas nas mein
neend chura ke meri
khaao na kasmen
mujhko papiha tere naghme sunaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aaye raja

teri judaai
meri tanhaai
yaad puraani phir se
taaza ho aayi
teri judaai
meri tanhaai
yaad puraani phir se
taaza ho aayi
aise royen kaise
palken milaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aaye raja

neend na aaye raja
tum yaad aaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye. . .
neend na aaye raja

नींद ना आए राजा
तुम याद आए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये॰॰॰
नींद ना आए राजा

लाखों सितारे
दिलकश नज़ारे
फिर भी कमी है पिया
बिना तुम्हारे
नज़रों में तुम हो तो
चाँद ना भाए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आए राजा

दिल नहीं बस में
प्यार नस नस में
नींद चुरा के मेरी
खाओ ना कसमें
दिल नहीं बस में
प्यार नस नस में
नींद चुरा के मेरी
खाओ ना कसमें
मुझको पपीहा तेरे नग़में सुनाये
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आए राजा

तेरी जुदाई
मेरी तनहाई
याद पुरानी फिर से
ताज़ा हो आई
ऐसे रोएँ कैसे पलकें मिलाये
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आए राजा

नींद ना आए राजा
तुम याद आए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये॰॰॰
नींद ना आए राजा

“Bijli”(1950) was directed by Sushil Sahu for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Ramesh Gupta, Sitara, Vilas Mohbe, Paro, Badri Prasd, Sushir Sahu, Amirbai Karnataki, Satya Narayan, Narbada Shankar, C L Shah, Kanta, Kazmi etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (10 august 2017) is the 67th remembrance day of Khemchand Prakash ( 12 december 1907- 10 august 1950). On this occasion, here is a song from “Bijli”(1950).

This song is sung by two female singers. HFKG mentions them as Geeta Roy and Paro, whereas the uploader of the song mentions them as Shamshad Begam and Paro. But I think that the voices in the song are of two singers who are not Geeta Roy (alater Dutt), Shamshad Begam or Paro devi, three singers whose voices are quite distinctive and different from the voices in the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voices that sound familiar.

PS-Now Sudhir Jee has fished out a clearer version of this song from his collection. There the voices are very clear and they unmistakably belong to Paro and Geeta Roy. I thank Sudhir Jee for helping clarify matters.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This is and lovely song which sounds like a stage performance song where a city slicker lady complains that she is uncomfortable in the village of her beue and she asks him to take her to Bombay. Very cute and justifiable feelings that most people can readily identify with. I too used to groan like this when I found myself going to my native place (a village) during my younger days. 🙂

Lyrics

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 02
—————————————————-

I missed the birth anniversary of my dear Jaidev ji (3rd Aug), by not presenting a tribute to him. I also regretfully observed that same day on our blog, under to flood of songs of ‘KK’ by his fans, NO Atulite remembered Jaidev ji.

Shame on me. I was a professional video editor for half my life, and still, I could not make a video from the audio I had, for whatever excuses I can find. Thanks are due to dear Sadanand Bhai, who was kind enough to promptly prepare this video on my request.

Looking at the list of NFS covered on our blog, I realised that there is a huge collection of Jaidev-ji’s non film songs in my khazaana, waiting to be shared and admired. In this new series ‘Jaidev ki Non-Filmi Suraavali’ this is the second presentation.

Neelam Sahani was from Delhi and a regular artist performing at ‘Akashvani’. She had the music training from Pt. Mahendra Sarin of AIR Jaipur. She learnt classical and light classical music from Ustad Gaffar Khan of Delhi Gharana. She was also trained by Ustad Iqbal Ahmed Khan of Delhi Gharana who was also with AIR Delhi as a music composer. Whenever she was in Mumbai she recorded numerous songs for Jaidev ji in Hindi, Punjabi and Gujarati languages. Her sweet voice is very much appreciated by the lovers of good music.

Jaidev ji groomed her and under his baton she sang many songs in different languages.  He also introduced her to films like ‘Ram Nagari’ and ‘Jeene Ke Liye’.

Anil Biswas used her voice for the famous serial ’Hum Log’ and ‘Ameer Khusrow’. She was independent MD for tele-film ‘Gumraah’.

She lost her husband Mr Luthra, due to cancer, and soon succumbed to the same decease and breathed her last on April 27, 2010.

(In my writing about Neelam Sahani, I thankfully acknowledge the help of singers Chhaya Ganguli and Meetali Mukherjee, who provided me some of the above mentioned details.)

sham thi tum the, maine chhedi ghazal
jal uthhe muskuraahaton ke kanwal

In the proximate moments of evening
With you by my side
(The feelings within expressed themselves)
I sang these verses (for you)
And your lotus lips
Bloomed with smiles

ae hawaao khilaaye hain kisne
aasmaanon pe mehr o maah ke kanwal

O wandering winds of the skies
Tell me
Who has planted in heavens
These lotuses of the Sun and the Moon
[Notes: mehr = the Sun
maah = the Moon]

ab sahaara nahin raha koi
zindagi se kaho kuchh ab to sambhal

None remains anymore
To bear me, to hold me up
(On these uneven roads of life)
Someone tell this wayward life
To be more wary and cautious

dard e manzil jo dil mein uth’ata hai
bas usi dard ke saahare chal

(Traversing these passages of life)
The ache that throngs in the heart
Of the longings for the destinations we seek
Let that ache be the sole purpose
The sole impetus for the journey

“Sant Raghu”(1957) was produced by M K Kapadiya and directed by Chandrakant for Kanak Productions, Bombay. This “bhakti pradhan” movie had Nirupa Roy, Anand Kumar, Ulhas, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, S N Tripathi, Manorama, Babu Raje, Tuntun, Maujoo, Radheshyam, Bhagwan Sinha, R S Dubey, Champak Laala, Sheila Vaz, Rajkumar, Amrit etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it that had the voices of as many as six singers in them.

Here is the first song from “Sant Raghu”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Talat Mehmood. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as the picturisation of the song.

Listening to the song leaves us in no doubt that this song is influenced from the tune of a well known song from “Naagin”(1946).

With this song, “Sant Raghu”(1957) makes its debut in the blog.

Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

In our astrological scheme, there is a concept of ‘bhadra’, which is invoked on the basis of a combination of certain ‘nakshatras‘ (stellar entities). ‘Bhadra’ is a short period of time for which certain conjunctions of certain stellar entities exist. Although lasting for short spells – few minutes to few hours, ‘bhadra’ has a significance. These short interludes are designated as inauspicious in our system of calculations. As a result, the pundits and astrologers will advise against conducting or initiating any auspicious activity during the time passage of ‘bhadra’. Incidentally, as per astrological calculations, the ‘bhadra’ time period overlaps with the full moon day today, for some time. The effect of ‘bhadra’ conjunction is(was) active till about 11 am today morning. So as per announcements at the temples, on the religious channels, and as advised by knowledgeable elders, the festival celebration of Raakhi today was advised to be initiated only after 11 am.

Then, there is another important astrological event that occurs today. Later tonight, we shall also witness a lunar eclipse. Again, as per calculations for the Indian subcontinent, the lunar eclipse with start at 10:53 pm tonight.  It will last for a duration of little less than two hours, and will end at 00:48 am tomorrow (8th Aug).
[Note: All times indicated above are according to Indian Standard Time.]

In case you wonder, why is one concerned about the lunar eclipse that is anyway going to start so late in the night, there are some reasons. Although the specific time and duration of the actual eclipse is of a certain length, the total duration of the conjunction of the heavenly bodies involved in the eclipse is much longer than just the visible eclipse. In this case, the heavenly bodies involved are the sun, the moon and the earth. The lunar eclipse is effected when the sun, moon and earth are so aligned that the earth is positioned directly in between the sun and the moon, and the shadow of the earth falls on the moon, making it look partially or fully dark; the duration and coverage of course varies depending on where you are placed for viewing, in terms of longitude location.

Folks may recall their geography lessons from the school days, and remember the concept of umbra and penumbra. As an opaque object passes in front of a source of light, it first creates an area of partial darkness (also called the shadow of darkness or shadow of eclipse). This is called the penumbra. Then when the object fully occludes the light coming from the source, we get an area of total darkness, which is the actual eclipse itself. This is called the umbra. As the object continues to move in front of the light source, the umbra once again transforms into penumbra, and we get a second area of partial darkness, after the eclipse is over. Hence the total duration of the two sets of partial darkness periods and one total darkness period, is actually much more than the duration of the visible eclipse (the umbra) only. Given the relative positions and distances of the three moving bodies, the duration of each penumbra could be anywhere from 7 to 9 hours. And so the conjunction of the three heavenly bodies that creates the eclipse effect, actually will last for almost 20 hours.

And the impact of that on our celebrations? Well, once again, as per our astrological definitions, the duration of this ‘shadow of the eclipse’ is also considered to be inauspicious, and hence the advise to refrain from conducting or initiating any auspicious activity. For those who follow these instructions, the lunar eclipse tonight puts in one more restriction on Raakhi celebrations today. Since the penumbra duration can be 8 to 9 hours, then for the given time of eclipse (10:53 pm) we must calculate back by subtracting this time. We arrive at a time of approximately 2 pm as the outer limit of this window. Given these calculations and guidance, the auspicious time for Raakhi today is(was) limited to a window from 11 am to 2 pm.

Anyway, that is just for the information buffs, who need to know the details of why. . .?? 🙂

Coming to the posts for today. Atul ji has posted one song earlier today morning, in which he has given some background of the previous Raakhi celebration days that we have had on our blog. In that background, he has mentioned that overall 22 songs have been posted on our blog, over the past 9 cycles of this festival, from 2008 onwards. As I read this statement, I was a little uncertain about this number, thinking that Atul ji is probably underestimating the count. Nine years at 22 songs computes to a little over two songs on average per festival. I had a feeling there have to be more.

So I started to check, picking out the dates for the Raakhi day each year, and then checking on the blog for the songs on that day. My hunch was correct. We have much more, in fact we have 32 Raakhi songs posted on our blog, and the number now is 34, considering the two songs posted today. The count of songs by year, as per the song lists we maintain, is given as below.

So, over the past nine years, we have 32 songs posted for Raakhi. Maybe 3 or 4 of these songs are not pure bred Raakhi songs – they are songs about brother-sister love, but they have been posted on Raakhi days, in conjunction with the festival.

Way back in 2010, when we were on our third Raakhi celebration, the blog till then, contained only two Raakhi songs (one each posted in 2009 and 2010). Starting the first post for that day (24th Aug, 2010), Atul ji writes,

This is the third Raakhi for this blog. […]

This time I wanted to post more “Raakhi” songs but then I thought that there were very few “Raakhi” songs created in Hindi movies and I wondered if I would be able to post about six “Raakhi” songs. I was delighted to find that I was in fact able to find more than six “Raakhi” songs. So I find myself being able to post my daily quota of six songs on this Raakhi day.

That day, in fact he did post 6 songs of the festival and of brother-sister love. He mentions that he is afraid not too many songs have been created for this festival. Then in 2011, we go ahead and post 5 more songs. In 2012, the count goes up to 7 Raakhi songs posted, all in one day. Atul ji is like a millionaire – many more to come :D:D. (Personally I would have been a spendthrift, trying to save some for future such events. 😉 ).

Then in 2013, the count comes down to 5 (posted across two dates 20th and 21st Aug). In 2014 we are down to 3, then 2 in 2015 and, goodness, just one in 2016. Looks like we are running out of these celebration songs. But wait, we have two posted this year, and our dear Prakash ji has identified a few more from the later decades, that we shall probably be holding on to for next year and later. 🙂

But seriously, I believe there is still some more songs that have to be traced. Reason being, well, none of us has heard all the songs of all the films. Another factor – sometimes we can guess the song’s theme by the words in the song title. Yet, there are so many songs where the title does not easily reveal itself to be of a particular theme. So then, even screening the list contained in the Geet Kosh is only helpful to an extent. Sometimes when I am doing a search, I will try to scan the lists and look for the word ‘राखी’. Most such songs are posted. Then the next two words I would search in the song index are ‘बहना’ and ‘भैया’. These two scanning efforts have turned up some more songs that are meant for today’s celebration.

Case in point is today’s song. The mukhda starts with ‘थईय्या ता ता थईय्या’ (‘thaiya ta ta thaiya’). A speedily glancing eye will just skip over this mukhda and move on. My attention was caught by the last word in the second part of the mukhda ‘जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया’ (‘jug jug jiye mera bhaiya’). And I decided to investigate. I had not heard this song before, although I have the recordings of all songs of this film (‘Sher Khan’ – 1962) in my collection. I pulled out the song and played it. It was like hitting gold in the first trial. Turns out to very much be a Raakhi song, and coming from an obscure film, and that too quite unexpectedly.

I have this film also (it is also available online). So I pulled the film and edited out the song for uploading, because the song itself is not available online yet.

‘Sher Khan’ is a stunt cum social film, about inter tribal rivalry that involves Pathan and Rajput clans. Produced under the banner of Mukul Movies, it is directed by Radhakant. The lead pair is Kumkum and Kanwaljeet. Other members of the cast include Veena, Jayant, Ulhas, Tabassum, Hiralal, Sunder, Majnu, Madhumati, WM Khan, Jeevankala, Surekha, Samson, Rana, Amir, Prem, Shafi Muhammad, Jagdish Bhalla and others. There are six songs in this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. And the music is by SN Tripathi. One song of this film is already posted on our blog. I just played all the songs and heard them – goodness, this obscure and unknown film is a gold mine of forgotten gems. Such lovely songs that were once in the hearing, have now been forgotten.

This song is a combination of a happiness and sadness. It is celebration time, and the ladies are singing a song of auspicious blessings. Meena (role played by a very young Tabassum), the daughter of Thakur Ranjeet Singh (role played by Ulhas). Sher Khan (role played by Kamaljeet) is a brave Pathan who strikes friendship with Thakur Ranjeet Singh, and treats Meena as his sister. The story is little more complicated than that, of course. It is the day of Raakhi, and Meena is waiting for Sher Khan to come for the tying of the Raakhi thread. Sher Khan has been waylaid; he fights off his attackers, gets to a doorway to get a drink of water. He discovers that it is the day of Raakhi, and then he quickly rides back to the home of Thakur Ranjeet Singh. Menawhile, Meena is singing the sad lines of the celebration song. But by the time the song ends, Sher Khan is standing in front of her, and the Raakhi is tied.

One query for the more knowledgeable readers – the lady who is leading the dance, and singing the happy portions of the song – is that Jeevankala? I request for help with identification.
NOTE: Prakash ji has checked and confirmed that the lead dancer is Madhumati. Also, one of the accompanying dancers is Shirley. Thanks Prakash ji.

This is a lovely lilting song, that soon gets into the humming domain in the mind. Once again, greetings and congratulations to all readers and friends, for today’s celebrations.

ke jiya ghabraayo ree
ke shubh din aayo ree
thaiya ta ta thaiya
jug jug jiye mera bhaiya
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree

thaiya ta ta thaiya
jug jug jiye mera bhaiya
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree

thaiya ta ta thaiya
jug jug jiye mera bhaiya
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree
main to bandhungi raakhi har saal
ke shubh din aayo ree

थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री

ना सोने की थाली माँगूँ
ना चाँदी की गगरिया
ना सोने की थाली माँगूँ
ना चाँदी की गगरिया
माँगूँ तो माँगूँ भैया
मैं तेरी लंबी उमरिया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री

ओ ओ ओss
सबके बीरन घर को आए
मैं ही बैठी आस लगाये
सबके बीरन घर को आए
मैं ही बैठी आस लगाये
किसको बांधूँ आज मैं राखी
किसको बांधूँ आज मैं राखी
मन की मन में ही ना रह जाये
के जिया घबरायों री
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री

आs आss आsssss
आजा आशा टूट ना जाए
तेरी बहना रूठ ना जाये
आजा आशा टूट ना जाए
तेरी बहना रूठ ना जाये
रस्ता तेरा तकते तकते
रस्ता तेरा तकते तकते
हाथ से राखी छूट ना जाये
के जिया घबरायों री
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री

थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
थईय्या ता ता थईय्या
जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया
मैं तो बाँधूँगी राखी हर साल
के शुभ दिन आयो री
