Ganpati Bappa Morya
Pudcha Varshi Lavkar Ya

Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha. It falls on the Shukla Chaturthi (4th day after Amavasya) in the month of Bhadrapada of the Hindu calendar i.e. August-September of the Gregorian calendar. Now this is common to the whole of India. And everyone has their own list of prasad that they offer to the lord. And all the panchang reading elders will tell us that when the Chaturthi starts etc and for how many days the festival will be for (usually 10) but due to the lunar calendar that is followed there will be some ghatika calculations which will determine if the festival ends on the 10th or 11th day.

But thanks to Bal Gangadhar Tilak Maharashtra has a special way of celebrating it. There the devout bring home idols and do pooja for a day and half and give a send-off to their favourite god on the next day that is on Panchmi. Then there are also those who keep the lord in their homes for five days. In between they also have a Gauri sthapana and worship the mother and son together for 2 days and then see them off on the 5th day. That day is Gauri visarjan.

Then there are the Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals. It is here that the youth get to show their ideas of decoration, event organisation etc. The mandals dedicate themselves to various causes and highlight this in their pandals. There is the usual bhajans playing through the 10 days of the festival etc. Then on the 10th day that means Anant Chaturdashi day there is the aarathi, the final pooja and then the idols along with all the flowers used for decoration etc are taken for immersion. The large ones are on open trucks and we have all the young revellers dancing to the beat of Nashik Dhols and recorded music and the cry of GANAPATI Bappa Morya filling the air space. (Environmentalists will call it high decibels of noise pollution). And there are the large numbers of people out on the streets till wee hours of the next morning waiting to see the last huge one immerse in the sea. If I am not wrong the last one is always Lalbaugcha Raja.

Lalbaug is a locality in the old Bombay region. This is where during the freedom struggle Balgangadhar Tilak had started the practice of community worship of the Lord as a way to protest the diktat of limit on number of people congregating.

Lalbaugcha Raja has a story of its own. It seems the market at Peru Chawl was shut down in 1932 effecting the livelihood of the fisherfolk and other vendors who operated from there. These vendors vowed to Ganesha for a permanent place for their market. The collective efforts of the councillors and prominent local residents of those times the landlord Rajabai Tayyabji gave the land for the existing Lalbaug Market.

In 1934 as a thanksgiving or fulfilment of their vow (Navasa in Marathi) the traders and fisherfolk came together to start this sarvajanik pandal. Since 1935 the same family -Kambli family- has been designing the idol which has kept nearly the same “sitting pose” over the years. The idol is always around 18-20 feet tall. The parts are made at their workshop in the adjoining lane and assembled in the pandal. The grand old man of the Kambli family then comes and paints the lord’s eyes. The decoration is always contemporary and this year it was “Chandrayaan”. The visarjan procession of Lalbaugcha Raja is eagerly awaited through the lanes that it takes to reach Girgaum Chowpatty. There are special trucks, trailers and boats with pulleys that help take the idol kilometres into the sea so that it can be given a proper deep-sea immersion to match its size.

P.S.: the details about Lalbaugcha Raja are from a documentary that I saw last week on National Geography Channel.

We had the N. Chandra’s “Ankush” (1986) which used the Ganesh visarjan backdrop to show the rivalry between two Ganesh pandals and how it erupts into street fight.

In Remo D’Souza’s “ABCD- Any Body Can Dance” (2013) we had a sequence showing Ganesh Visarjan. There was this wonderful dance number and the song was true to the Ganapati Bappa Morya spirit. The movie had a collection of dance freaks who were essentially a part of Remo’s troupe most of who are independent choreographers now. in addition we have Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya, in major roles in the movie, present in this song.

I thought that this song is ideal for today. The song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan & Vishal Dadlani. The song is written by one Mayur Puri and Sachin-Jigar are the music directors. This means that this song would have qualified in the series of “Music Director singing for another music director list” that we had from Arunkumar Deshmukhji a few years back. (Both Shankar Mahadevan and Vishal Dadlani are music directors as we all know).

This is the link to the song:-

Hullo To all in Atuldom

A very happy Janmashtami or Gokulashtami or Sri Krishna Jayanthi as it is called in the various parts of the country. It is celebrated with a lot of prasads, bhajans and jagrans (in some regions). Jagran means keeping awake. The thought behind this is that Lord Krishna was born in the dead of the night so the devotees keep vigil till that hour. As per mythology it was raining heavily at the time of the Lord’s birth and most of the country is having a good monsoon at this point.

The Srimad Bhagwat Puraan says- at birth the Lord was transported, hidden inside a basket by his father Vasudev, to the house of Nand in Gokul, across a swollen Yamuna. (As if in anticipation of the lord there is a flood alert along the banks of the river Yamuna this year.) The Lord grew up in the loving care of Nand and his wife Yashoda. His baal-leelas (playful pastimes as a child) are described in the 10th Canto of the Srimad Bhagwat Puraan. One of the acts described in great detail is ‘maakhan chori‘ – how the lord Loved to reach out to the pots of curds, milk and butter that used to be hung up in the kitchens of Gokul.

Today’s song shows the day 2 of the Janmashtami / Gokulashtami celebrations that is very common in western India. It is from the 1979 Rajkumar Kohli directed Sunil Dutt- Reena Roy- Bindiya Goswami- Shatrughan Sinha starrer ‘Muqaabla’. It has songs penned by Verma Malik with Laxmi-Pyare as the music directors.  Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Anwar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd. Rafi are the playback singers used in the movie. The movie was a typical romantic, masaala movie where Sunil Dutt and Shatru play gang leaders. I vaguely remember having seen it, possibly on television, and by the time I discovered it half the movie was over.

But here is the gist as given on IMDB.com:

Sheru (Shatrughan Sinha) and Vicky (Sunil Dutt) are two gang leaders. After a series of complications and mishaps both realize that they will be better off being friends and helping the poor and needy. They also fall in love with two separate women, one of them is Lacho (Reena Roy). When these two turn good guys, the bad guy’s leader Banwanri (Ranjeet) gets angry and vengeful. Fortunately, our two heroes get support from a honest police inspector (Premnath). Then Sheru finds out that Lacho really loves Vicky and his son, this embittered them both against each other. And the two again resume their old rivalry and hatred for each other.

As I said earlier, Janmashtami celebrations continue on to the second day in many parts of India. There are street corner scenes where in pots of goodies along with dahi are tied high up. Groups of youngsters make an attempt at breaking the pots, by making human pyramids and emulating Krishna’s habit of breaking pots which were tied up in the kitchens of yore.

In my younger days (there, I let the cat out of the bag, that I am not so young now though I like to think that I am still a bachcha 🙂 ) we used to have dahi-handi in our apartment complex between the two wings of flats. They used to be tied at a height of 1st floor. We needed a pyramid of three tiers to reach the handi. It was a very simple joyful day. Then as time went by, as in other spheres of life, commercialization set in the dahi-handi festival began to be conducted with prize money attached to the ropes of dahi-handi. This has further grown to the extent that there is this chowk (crossroad intersection) in Thane where the competition is held and the whole road is out of bounds for traffic for the day. And groups of youth practice for months on end to make pyramids which have seven or eight layers. There are numerous cases of people falling and breaking their limbs.  Lately there are also all girl groups in the contest. It is telecast live on all Marathi TV channels and makes for good viewing.

Dahi-handi was made popular in Hindi cinema by Shammi Kapoor in ‘Bluffmaster’ (1965) – the original “Govinda Aala Re, Aala, Zara Matki Sambhaal Brijbaala“.  Various heroes have copied him in subsequent years. In today’s song, we have Shatrughan Sinha and Sunil Dutt have a go at the handi along with Manmohan (in red shirt) and others who are not clear in this video. (A few years back Sonakshi Sinha also had a Govinda song to her name). The song is written by Verma Malik and Laxmikant Pyarelal are the music directors. Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers.  I couldn’t stop my smile when I saw Sunil Dutt dancing. Don’t know who the dance master was who gave him steps that were uncharacteristic of Duttsaab. Then Dr. Shreeram Lagoo enters the scene as the advisor of peace and I was desperately trying to recognize the actor in the light brown shirt with a head band who was trying to raise bets on who will break the handi. The finale of the song is the whole pyramid collapsing when this actor pokes a pin into the feet of one of the govindas (that is what the boys in the pyramid are called)

Govinda Aala Re!!!!

Song – Teen Batti Waala, Ae Govinda Aala  (Muqaabla) (1979) Singer -Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Today (15 august 2019) is not only the independence day, it also happens to be the festival of Rakhi.

I have managed to post one independence day song on this occasion. Now it is time I cover a Rakhi festival song as well, before the day wears off.

This raakhi festival song is from “Dav Pech”(1989). The correct spelling should be “Daanv Pench”. This movie was produced by Padmini Kolhapure and directed by Kewal Verma for Padmini Films Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, BhanuPriya(south),Prem Chopra, Dinesh Hingoo, Chandrashekhar,Shakti Kapoor, Bob Christo, Sunil Dhawan, Renu Joshi,C.S.Dubey, Manik Irani,Kamaldeep, Neeta Kapoor,
Sangeeta Kapoor,Master Rinku,Gurbachchan Singh, Gauri Verma,Jugnu, Azad Irani,Umesh Khanna, Surbhi Zaveri etc in it.

This rakhi song had two versions. The duet version (happy version) was sung by Sadhana Sargam and Shailendra Singh. It was picturised on Gauri Verma, Jeetendra and Master Rinku. The sad female solo version was just one stanza long and it was sung by Sadhana Sargam.

Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra long back.

With this song, “Dav Pech”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish our visitors happy Raakhi and also happy independence day.

Blog Day : 3898 Post No. : 14946

Little earlier in the day, Atul ji mentioned about the timing of posting of Holi songs, and I quote,

Different festivals remain topical for different duration of time. If we do not post a write up within this time then the post loses its relevance. In case of Holi, it is the first half of the day mostly when people are mostly in festive mood, though it spills over to the afternoon as well.

As I am rushing to complete this post, it is already around 6 pm. Yes, the festivities for the day have been over for some time. Mostly the people have cleaned up and many would have had their afternoon siestas too. Maybe the only remaining sign of the festivities from earlier part of the day are the splashes of colored water on walls and floors, which most people would address tomorrow morning. Ah yes, another lingering evidence of the celebration could be some people still in the hangover of the bhaang, maybe still sleeping it off, or if awake, not yet back from the cuckoo land. 🙂

This post is coming somewhat late in the day, but the attempt is cover an important aspect of the celebrations of today. The festival of Holi, for ages now, has been intimately associated with the story of Lord Krishna. And so, the celebration somehow does not seem to be complete without having one song about Holi in Biraj, or Brij, the native place where the child Krishna grew up. There abound many a legends and folk songs that tell of the Holi celebrations when Krishna was in Brij. And the same has also been carried over into the Hindi films. Many a songs of Holi in Hindi films revolve around the stories and pastimes of Krishna.

I present this lovely Holi song from the 1970 film ‘Mastaana’. The lyrics for this song have been sent in by dear Prakash ji.

Produced under the banner of Suchitra and directed by A Subbarao, the cast of actors in this film is Mehmood, Padmini, Vinod Khanna, Bharti, Rehman, Bobby, Shyama, Ramesh Dev, Manorama, Mukri, Leela Mishra, Kamal Kapoor, Shivraj, Paro, Narbada Shankar, Mumtaz Begum, Raj Kishore, Jankidas, Ravikant, Prabhat Kumar, Habeeb, and Guddi.

The song is written by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. We have three singing voices in this song – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle and Mukesh. Interestingly, Asha ji’s voice is used as playback for three artists on screen – Padmini, the child actor Bobby who plays the role of child Krishna in this song, and Bharati. Rafi Sb’s voice is used for playback for Mehmood and Mukesh’s voice for Vinod Khanna. Another dear song that I was not aware that it has not yet been posted here.

Interesting part of the song – it uses four different folk dance forms. Initially it is the typical filmi style choreography that is used. Then later in the song, we see the four flavors, and the language of the chorus also gets modified accordingly. First we have the typical Brij rendition and folk dance. Then we have the Punjabi bhangra and Punjabi words in the chorus. This is followed by Gujarati dandia raas, with Gujarati words in the chorus. And then we have the Maharashtra folk dance steps, and Marathi words in the chorus. Very interestingly done. 🙂

Greetings for the festival yet once more before the day is out. Well, it is still daytime in other parts of the world. Khyati Ben is probably just in the process of waking up, and for her, the planning and cooking and the celebration is still to happen. 🙂  Krishna makes his appearance for the festivities and we all wish everyone, a very happy and colorful ambiance of this festival to last and continue through to the next year. And then, we shall have more songs to post. 🙂

Happy Holi.

India is a country of festivals. India is also a country of colours. So, it follows naturally that there should be a festival of colours as well in India. Indeed that is the case and that festival is called Holi.

Today (21 march 2019) is Holi, the festival of colour. Holi is the most favourite festival as far as Hindi aand other Indian language movies are concerned. This festival offers all the opportunities that Hindi movie makers so look forward to, viz to slip in a song and dance situation.

Hindi movie makers want a situation where both genders should be seen dancing together, teasing each other, taking liberties with each other, and yet the other party not objecting- this festival offers all these opportunities, possibilities and more. No wonder Hindi (and Indian) movie makers have utilised Holi festival opportunities to the full and continue to do so. Even new Hindi movies, who are otherwise known for forgettable songs in them continue to come up with Holi songs that manage to be longer lasting that other songs of the movie. Take the example of the Holi song that Sudhir Jee posted first thing in the morning. It is a song from 2013. I was not aware of this song and even Sudhir Jee became aware of the song only a while back, but what a song it is! Here is a song from this century where lyrics is the star just like how it used to be in the Golden era of HFM.

This is the eleventh Holi for this blog. Since this festival is the MFF (most favourite festival) of Hindi movies so one can be certain to have a steady supply of Holi festival songs to cover in the blog, even though we have already covered most well known Holi songs including timeless Holi songs.

As many as 57 Holi songs have been covered in the blog so far on 10 previous occasions, which works out to a whopping average of nearly six holi festival songs each year (5.7 per holi day, to be precise)! It is a higher average than the daily post average of the blog (3.8 songs per day) at the moment.

Different festivals remain topical for different duration of time. If we do not post a writeup within this time then the post loses its relevance. In case of Holi, it is the first half of the day mostly when people are mostly in festive mood, though it spills over to the afternoon as well. Same is the case for Republic day and Independence day as well, where Indians feel at their most patriotic during the first half of the day !

It is already afternoon, and I should have been prompt like Sudhir Jee, who scheduled his Holi festival song for posting early in the morning , after dong all the writeup earlier. I, on the other hand find myself behaving like a student who is trying hard to study his text books after the time is all but over. 🙂

I have Prakashchandra for my rescue though. He has sent so many Holi festival songs that they will easily last me a few more Holi festivals.

If Sudhir Jee chose a Holi song from 21st century, I have chosen a Holi festival song from 1981, when the Golden Era of HFM had just ended and baton was being exchanged between Golden era artists and non golden era artists so to say.

“Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) was produced by Salim Akhtar and directed by Harmesh Malhotra for Citizen pictures, Bombay. The movie had Raj Babbar, Poonam Dhillon,Shakti Kapoor, Bharat Kapoor, Huma Khan, Narendranath, Asrani,Dina Pathak, Purnima,Abhi Bhattacharya, Kalpana Iyer, Madhu Malhotra, Bhushan Tiwari,Janaki Dass,Ajay, Sunder, Azad Irani, Rammurti Chatrurvedi, Sunder Taneja, Dolly, Khushboo,Moolchand, Kirti,Goga Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it.

This Holi song from “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) is the first song from the movie to get covered in the blog. This song is sung by the Golden Era singers viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with chorus. Lyrics are by Anjaan. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

The song is picturised on Raj Babbar and Kalpana Iyer with lots of other dancers. Asrani, Moolchand, Bhooshan Tiwari etc are prominently visible alongwith others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who as is his wont, specially mentioned that the audio is a bit longer than the video version. Incidentally the video of this song has ended up becoming rare to find.

With this song, “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Holi.

Colorful greetings to all readers and friends. May this festival of colors, bring happiness and good health, to yourself, and to everyone you know. 🙂  May these colors multiply and spread good cheer across every day in the calendar.

Happy Holi to all.

On this blog, we are celebrating the eleventh iteration of this festival. Statistics is one thing – apart from that, the wonderful fact is that the songs of Holi in Hindi films, seem like a supply with no end. Of course yes, when the films and their directors continue to add more songs celebrating this festival every year.

I bring to your attention, this wonderfully fabulous song of the spirit of Holi, from a really very recent film – ‘Ye Jawaani Hai Deewaani’ from 2013. This film was one of the most successful films of that year, and I am sure you must be aware of it, even though it is possible that your tastes and preferences are rooted in the 1940s and 50s which is the gold standard for melody and music in Hindi films. However, that does not mean that music of the decades after the golden . . . – well it does deserve credit. It does catch your attention, and the music and songs still grow into your mind to become darling memories.

Although I have myself not been paying much attention and time to the music of the current years. But quite decidedly, along comes a film with a blast of music that forcefully captures your attention, and insists on becoming part of your list of favorites. Something quite of this sort happened with this 2013 film, for me. And it started very much with this song.

After a long time, I must say, that I have encountered a song of this festival, that simply takes your breath away. The spirit of celebration, and all the emotions that uniquely make this festival what it is – is not so totally and carefully represented every time. But surely, this song does it.

There is color, lots and lots of it.
There is water – it starts off with that.
There is cheer – for every person who is part of this song, and everyone else who may be listening and enjoying it.
There is music – yes of course.
There is dancing – goodness you must be kidding.
There is ‘bhaang’, and there is noise.
There is a large dipping pool – nay, a large dunking pool.
Oh yes, there is “छेड़ छाड़” – chhed chhaad, there is “ज़ोर ज़बरदस्ती” – zor zabardasti.
There are fair maidens running away to save themselves from being smothered with color and water.
And there are insistent and forceful young charmers who will not take ‘no’ for an answer. Or rather they do not even care what the answer is – they will force the color into your face and hair. They will chase you, and run you down, and cuddle you – and they will be more insistent, the more resistance one puts up.
There are drums.
There is singing – very loud, yes.
There is nonsense lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” – lattu padosan ki bhabhi ho gayi.
There are meaningful verses – “ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई. . .” – zulmi ye haazir jawaabi ho gai.
There is “नोक झोंक” – nok-jhonk – that is very verbal and very physical too.
There is humor, and there is suggestive propositioning – like “अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई” – armaanon mein behisaabi ho gai.
And there is flights of fancy.
And there is uncharacteristic expressions of festivity from unexpected quarters
And there is a glimmer of surprised realizations.
The matters of heart, unexpressed, are just beneath the surface sheen.
And of course there is a shock of unexpected and amazing realizations – yes, this could surely be it.
There is joy of shared happinesses.
There is a loud cheer of good spirit.
And everything, each and every one of these ingredients put together into the mix to convince you – yayyy, it is Holi – get colored, and get wet, very wet.

Amazing, simply and truly amazing – after a long time, comes along a new sound that astonishes the mind with the honesty with which the true spirit of the festival is so sweetly captured. Needless to say it – but yes, I am quite truly floored.

I have not yet seen the complete film. I got introduced to the songs of this film over the past many months. Especially this Holi song was forcefully dumped into my notice just about a year ago, yes around the last iteration of this celebration. Enthused as I was, I could not make and present a post in time for the festival; now coming around to it after a wait of a full year. Even with this passage of time, the charm of this song has not diminished even one bit. I simply do not seem to be getting enough of this song. 🙂

The lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the music is by Preetam. Singing voices are of Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade. On screen, the song is performed by Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin, Aditya Roy Kapoor and a ton of dancers. Deepika and Ranbir are so truly convincing in the complete free form enjoyment in this song. The movie makes its debut on our blog with this song.

Wishing a grand celebration of this festival today, to all friends and readers. Go out, get doused in colors, make up some fun lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” types, and sing it out at the top of the voice. It does not matter – it is Holi. Just down one glass of bhang and then blame it for everything. 😀 😀 😀

Happy Holi – – – celebrate.

अबे चशमिश

कौन चशमिश

होली है॰ ॰ ॰

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया
दुगुना नशा
क्यों हो रहा है
आँखों से मीठा तू ने खिलाया
हो तेरी मलमल की कुर्ती गुलाबी हो गई
तू चली चाल जैसे नवाबी हो गई
तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

तेरी कलाई है
हाथों में आई है
मैंने मरोड़ा तो
लगती मलाई है
महंगा पड़ेगा ये
चसका मलाई का
उपवास करने में
तेरी भलाई है
हो बिंदिया तेरी महारगाबी हो गई
के अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई
तेरी तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

क्यों नो वेकेंसी की
होठों पे गाली है
जब के तेरे दिल का
कमरा तो खाली है
मुझको पता है रे
क्या चाहता है तू
बोली भजन तेरी
नीयत क़व्वाली है
ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई
तू तो हर ताले की आज चाबी हो गई
ओ ओ
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

Blog Day : 3881 Post No. : 14905

I wish all our readers a very Happy and cosmic MAHASHIVRATRI, to be celebrated today, i.e. 4th March 2019.

This is the one day in the entire year (barring Shravan Somvars) on which I become more religious and engage in pooja, listening to Shiv Bhajans and also do fasting. Our family was very religious. My father was a Sanskrit Scholar and had spent some time in Banares, giving religious sermons in the Kashi Vishveshar Temple during 1948-49. This was the time when he had gone underground to avoid arrest, as most Hindu Mahasabha leaders were arrested along with Savarkar, after Gandhi ji’s death. He was finally arrested and freed by the court “ba-izzat“. We came down to Hyderabad and he started practicing as a Lawyer as he was BA LLB.

Very soon we moved into our spacious bungalow, adjacent (within our compound) to which he constructed a Mahadev Mandir. It was open to public also. Every Shrawan Somvar and Mahashivaratri, there used to be big celebrations, a pooja by 101 bramhins and playing of Shiv Bhajans throughout the day. All this has been etched deep on my mind and I too became a Shiv Bhakta. Now also I do poojas on these days, but I miss all those days’ enjoyment as a growing teenager.

I have read the Shiv Puraan completely (and also other Puraans). The marriage of Shiv-Parvati has been described very minutely in this Puraan. They are believed to have married on the midnight of Mahashivratri. During the period upto early 70s, I never missed any Hindi/ Marathi/ Telugu/ Kannada Shiva film. I have also seen this film – ‘Shankar Parvati’ (1943).

‘SHANKAR PARVATI’ was quite a successful movie in those days, as it appealed to the religious minded Indians, who have grown up listening to mythological stories. I remember seeing this movie in its second run, as there was an attraction of trick scenes in this movie. The story is about how Sati (Sadhona Bose) the daughter of King Daksha, goes to attend Yagnya by Daksha, uninvited and gets insulted for her husband – Shankar (played by Arun Kumar Ahuja- father of actor Govinda). She jumps into the fire and dies and on hearing this, Shankar is very angry and does the Tandav Nritya. Sati is reborn as Parvati, who, to regain her love back, dances and wins Shankar. Their elder son Kartikeya ,destroys Tarakasur etc.

Sadhana Bose was an internationally acclaimed dancer and acted in some Hindi and several Bengali movies in the 1940s and 1950s.
Her most famous film was ‘RAJNARTAKI’ (1941), opposite Prithviraj Kapoor and it was made in Hindi, English and Bengali at the same time. Though a box office failure, it had fabulous dances by her.

There are few songs sung by Sadhana Bose in ‘Shankar Parvati’ and ‘Paigham’ (1942). According to Timir Baran, these are not sung by her, but by Suprabha Ghosh. However, famous music Historian Kamalakar Pasupuleti says that Sadhana Bose was an accomplished dancer and singer too. In her all time favourite ‘ALIBABA’ in Bengali she, as Marjina, and her director husband Madhu Bose, as Abdulla in the film, sang many duets which are popular even today in Bengal.

Arun Mukherji, Music Director of ‘Parineeta’ (1953), had literally translated one song from ‘Alibaba’ in Hindi “Aye Baandi, Tum Begum Bani….’ sung by Kishore and Asha in ‘Parineeta’ (1953).

The film was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. During the early era of talkie films, till the 1960s, there was a horde of Gujarati directors and producers. Bhatts, Trivedi, Thakur, Shahs, Desais, Pancholi, Doshi, Daves were some names frequently found directing various genres. Usually they specialised in certain class and type of films. The Bhatts (Shankar and Vijay) liked to do Mythological films, Ramnik Shah handled stunt, action, fantasy films, Jayant Desai was social film oriented etc.

Chaturbhuj Doshi (1894–1969) was a Hindi and Gujarati writer-director of Indian cinema. He was one of the top Gujarati screenplay writers, who helped script stories for the Punatar productions. He is stated to be one of the leading figures who launched the Gujarati film industry with work on notable films like ‘Gunsundari’ (1948) and ‘Nanand Bhojai’ (1948). He was ‘well known’ for his family socials and had become ‘a celebrity in his own right’. He made a name for himself as a journalist initially and was referred to as the ‘famous journalist’ & publicist by Baburao Patel, editor of Filmindia.

His debut film as a director was ‘Gorakh Aya’ (1938), produced by Ranjit Movietone, though he joined Ranjit in 1929, as a scriptwriter. In 1938, he directed another film for Ranjit, a social comedy, ‘The Secretary’, and both films were box-office successes for Doshi. His forte was socials, regularly adapting stories and novels for films. He worked initially on comedies like ‘Secretary’ and ‘Musafir’ (1940), but then ‘shifted to more significant films’.

Chaturbhuj Anandji Doshi was born in 1894 in Kathiawad, Gujarat, British India. He was educated at the University of Bombay, after graduation he started work as a journalist for a daily, Hindustan (1926), working for editor Indulal Yagnik. His entry into films was working as a scenarist in the silent era for directors like Jayant Desai, Nandlal Jaswantlal & Nanubhai Vakil. He joined Ranjit Movietone in 1929, and wrote stories and screenplay for several of Ranjit films.

Film ‘Gorakh Aya’ (Gorakh has come) in 1938, was the first film directed by Doshi. It was produced by Ranjit Movietone with screenplay by Gunvantrai Acharya & dialogues by PL Santoshi. The music, termed ‘good’ was composed by Gyan Dutt. ‘The Secretary’ (1938), was a “riotous comedy”, starring Madhuri, Trilok Kapoor. Charlie. The music was composed by Gyan Dutt, became a regular in most of the films directed by Doshi. Musafir in 1940 was a comedy costume drama, which had Charlie playing a prince.

‘Bhakta Surdas’, a devotional film directed by Doshi in 1942, is stated to be the “most famous” of the several versions made. It starred KL Saigal and Khursheed “the singing idol(s) of millions”, winning “unprecedented popularity” everywhere.

‘Mehemaan’ (1942) starred Madhuri, Ishwarlal, Shamim and Mubarak. Music director Bulo C. Rani had come to Bombay in 1942, and joined Ranjit Studios assisting Khemchand Prakash in music direction.

Doshi helped enormously in the development of the Gujarati cinema. During 1948-49 he directed three successful Gujarati films which “brought immense success to the industry”. The success of the Gujarati film ‘Kariyavar’ in 1948, directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi from a story by Shaida, called Vanzari Vaav, helped establish the Gujarati film industry along with other films like ‘Vadilo Ne Vanke’ (1948) by Ram Chandra Thakur and ‘Gadono Bel’ (1950) by Ratibhai Punatar. His next Gujarati film was ‘Jesal Toral’ (1948) based on folk-lore, which proved a big box-office success. In 1949, Doshi directed another Gujarati film, ‘Vevishal’, an adaptation of Meghani’s novel of the same name.

He also wrote stories, and one of his stories ‘Pati Bhakti’ was used in the Tamil film ‘En Kanawar’ (1948) produced by Ajit Pictures, which starred the Veena maestro, Sundaram Balachander, who was also the debut director and music composer for the film. In all he directed 24 Hindi films. His last Hindi film was ‘Sanskar’ (1958). He had also written few songs in film ‘Maya Bazaar’ (1932).

Chaturbhuj Doshi died on 21 January 1969 in Bombay, Maharashtra, India. Filmography

1932: Narasinh Mehta (Writer), 1934: Sitamgarh (Writer), 1938: Gorakh Aya, Secretary, 1939: Adhuri Kahani, 1940: Musafir, 1941:Pardesi, Sasural, 1942: Bhakta Surdas, Dhiraj, Mehmaan, 1943: Chhoti Maa, Shankar Parvati (Director, Writer), 1944: Bhartrahari, 1945:Murti, 1946: Phulwari, 1947: Bela, Kaun Hamara, 1948: Jesal Toral, Kariyavar (Director, Writer), Sati Sone, 1949: Bhakta Puran, Vevishal, 1950: Akhand Saubhagya, Kisi Ki Yaad, Ramtaram, 1954: Aurat Teri Yahi Kahani, 1956: Aabroo, Dashera, Dassehra, 1957: Khuda Ka Banda, Shesh Naag, 1958: Sanskar, 1960: Mehndi Rang Lagyo (Writer, Lyricist).

The cast of the film was Sadhona Bose, Arun Ahuja, Mahipal, Rewa Shankar, Narbada Shankar etc. The MD was Gyan Dutt. Today’s song is sung by Rewa Shankar Marwadi. This is only the second song of Rewa Shankar on this blog. About 3 years ago, our Sadanand Kamath ji had given a complete biography of the actress dancer Sadhona Bose, while discussing the song – “Ganga Kinaare Mohe Bagiyaa Lagaa Do Sainyya“, of this film, hence I will not repeat it.

Sadhana Bose was responsible for the names of at least 2 actresses in Bombay. Actress Sadhana Shivdasani’s mother was very much impressed with the dancing skills of Sadhana Bose. She was her fan and saw her films repeatedly. When she was carrying for Sadhana, she had decided that if she gets a girl, her name would be Sadhana only. Thus Bombay Sadhana got the Calcutta Sadhana’s name.
Secondly, actress/dancer Kumkum’s real name was Zebunnisa. When she was selected by director Shahid Lateef, for his film ‘Sheesha’ (1952), first time for debut, there was already an actress Zebunnisa existing. What’s more, this Zebunnisa was also in the same film, so Shahid was thinking for a new name for the newcomer. He remembered that his favourite Sadhana Bose had acted in a film by the name ‘Kumkum-the Dancer’ (1940), so he selected the name Kumkum for this new dancer and Kumkum got her name.
After Sadhna stopped her dance films as a heroine, she resumed her work as a choreographer. In the early 50s, she choreographed in films like ‘Bhola Shankar’ (1951), ‘Nandkishore’ (1951), ‘Shinshinaki Boobla Boo’ (1952). She used to do bit roles too in these films to earn money. It is very sad that she died in penury and neglect, but artistes in the 40s and 50s-many of them- had similar stories.

I tried very hard to get some information about today’s singer Rewa Shankar Marwadi, who was an actor, lyricist, singer and also music director  in the 1930s and 1940s. However I could not get anything concrete. Anyway I found a note on this multi talented artist of the early era, written by Shri Dhananjay Naniwadekar aka Nani, on the old RMIM forum, some 15 years ago and adapted by me for this article.

Some of Ranjit Movietone’s earliest talkie films had music by Ustad Jhande Khan. Next came the trio of Banne Khan, Ganga Prasad Pathak and Rewa Shankar Marwari. None of that music was ever released on 78 rpm records. From 1938-39, the great duo of Jnan Dutt and Khemchand Prakash took over the charge of Ranjit’s music, later to be joined by Bulo C Rani. It was only around 1938 that Ranjit started releasing its film music on 78-rpm records.

Rewa Shankar Marwari’s association with Ranjit Films and films produced or directed by ex-Ranjit hand Jayant Desai continued in the
1940s. While it is a pleasant surprise that imdb.com has a page for an obscure name like ‘Rewashankar Marwadi’ at all, it is not surprising
that his filmography has been put together for the site by people who are far from competent at that sort of thing. He acted in 27 films, till 1955, sang 12 songs in 9 films and gave music to 21 films from ‘Veer Babruwahan’ (1934) to ‘Matrubhoomi’ (1949).

Rewa Shankar sang a beautiful classical composition ‘Jai Jai Shankar’ in the film ‘Shankar Parvati’ for composer Jnan Dutt. It is available with only few collectors, and is a rare instance of film music using Raag Shree.

Song – Jai Jai Shankar Gangadhar Shiv Sukhkaari  (Shankar Parvati) (1943) Singer – Rewa Shankar, Lyrics – Pt Indra, Music – Gyan Dutt

Greetings all – Basant is here. Today is the celebration of Basant Panchmi.

Of all the wonderful songs that have been created in Hindi films, for celebrating this King of Seasons, I would prefer to place this song today to be amongst the top five. Such a beautiful creation this is.

I myself had not heard of this song, till about five days ago. A friend in our circle enquired whether I had this song. He has been searching for it for some time now. Not being aware of it first hand, I said I will check. And when I located it in my collection, and then heard it for the first time, I am simply bowled over by the soft beauty and the delicious attractiveness of this song. The words, the music and the rendition have all come together in a conspiracy to steal your heart away.

The words are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Ah, the enchantment of the lyrics that say – “चलो तारों के गजरे बना लो सखी” – come, lets make a garland from the stars. The wonderful music is from the mind of Ajit Merchant. The soft and beautiful melody – it makes such a delightful use of chorus lines interspersed with the primary singing voice. And this exquisite rendition is in the voice of Sudha Malhotra. She has rendered some of the loveliest songs in Hindi films. And this one stands right up there with her best – sung ever so sweetly.

The film is ‘Ram Bhakt Vibhishan’ from 1958 – one of the more obscure and unfamiliar productions, whose claim to fame might well just be the lovely music – like this song. The production banner is Rajni Chitr, Bombay. The film is produced by SJ Rajdev and directed by Samar Chatterji. The star cast of this film is listed as Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Prem Adeeb, Krishna Kumari, Shanta Apte, Babu, Kamal, Surendra Kumar, Neema, Sarita, and Bipin Gupta. A total of nine songs are listed for this film. This is the third song for this film to appear here on our blog.

Listen to this lovely creation, and marvel – at the gems that still need to be discovered.

Song – Ritu Raja Ne Teer Chalaaya  (Ram Bhakt Vibhishan) (1958) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – Ajit Merchant

Blog Day : 3764 Post No. : 14737

Today (7 november 2018) is Deewaali, the festival of lights. It is the biggest festival in India, and it has kept on becoming bigger and bigger with time.

For the blog, it happens to be our eleventh Deewaali. Unblievable but true that this blog has lasted this long and has in fact gone on to evolve and progress as well.

We have discussed all the well known Deewaali festival songs during the previous ten occasions. The aricles accompanying these songs may have covered the festival from several angles. Some articles have dscussed the history of the festival, while others may have touched its financial worth.

In my discussion the last year, I had opined that our worship of Goddess Laxmi can succeed only if we have worshipped Goddess Saraswarti and Lord Viswwakarma, whose festivals come earlier in the year. By worship, I meant not the symbolic worship but following the spirit behind the worship.

For instance, worshipping Goddess Saraswati means acquiring quality education and skills, and business knowhow, while worshipping Lord Vishwakarma means putting all that acquired education, skill and knowedge to use into providing quality goods and services that can be traded. These commercial activities bring you money, viz Laxmi, and that too without necessarily worshippng her symbolically during Deewaali festival. Look at the prosperous nations of the West and far east. They worship Goddess Saraswati the right way (stressing on high quality education) and worship Lord Vishwakarma (creating vast industrial infrastructure). Little wonder then that they are blessed by Goddess Laxmi throughout the year, and not just on the occasion of Deewaali.

A good number of Indians on the other hand are scarcely blessed by Goddess Laxmi, and I have already given the reasons above. Most Indians do not invest on acquiring useful skills because that is hard work. Indians somehow try to avoid working hard and hope to move ahead through short cut methods. When it comes to dealing with other humans, these short cut methods are bribes, sycophancy, sifaarish and other forms of corruption, which may bring “results” for the individuals but in the long run it proves counterproductive for society and the nation as a whole. No country in the world has ever progressed to become a prosperous nation by adopting short cup methods. I have been doing a lot of studies off late on the topic of economy where I have looked at the nations that were poor like India in the past but have now become prosperous. They have done so by adopting the right policies, which involved quality education, healthcare etc, adopting business friendly policies and enforcement of discipline and rule of law.

India is on the right track I feel, but the number of people blessed by Goddess Laxmi in India can increase only if we sincerely and seriously worship Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishwakarma as the advanced Western and Far Eastern countries do. India does not have much time left to squander. India has another one decade or so to get its act together. If Indians can ensure quality education and have skilled employable manpawer and the right infrastructure and policies during the next one decade then Goddess Laxmi will begin to favour Indians like she favours the West and Far East nations. The vast manpower (then the biggest in the world, overtaking China), if educated and trained properly would be an asset for the nation. India cannot afford to fail here because failure means this vast population, if not employable, would then become a burden on the nation.

How to harness manpower for national development is a vast subject and I will cover it in some future date. Right now, people are in festival mood and most of them have more immediate pressing issues to worry about rather than long term issues like progress of the nation.:)

One important immediate issue that people worry about on the eve of Deewaali is- will I get leave to go home. 🙂 If somehow he/she manages to get leave, then the next worry is- trains are going crowded, how will I be able to reach home for festival. Indians, as is their wont, cannot help but look for short cuts here too. Ticket is wait listed. No problem. I will do something. So, a few days ago, I find an unsolicited whatsapp good morning message on my official mobile number. A few hours later, the person comes to the point. My son is employed in Mumbai. He has to come home to me for deewaali. He is wait listed. Here are the details. My take- I do not even know, who is this person, moreover, I am not based at Mumbai.Train is from A to B. I am based at C. This stranger wants me to go out of my way and help him. I am a soft hearted man by default, so I decide to help. I give the details to a staff of mine to be sent to concerned person in Mumbai, while telling him that I do not know who this person is. My staff is of the view that this person, going by his location must have obtained this number from the kid of my predecessor, who stays in this location B. OK, let us help him even if he is a stranger to me. So the requisition for emergency quota goes to Mumbai. On the date of journey, Mumbai office honours the request and allots a berth against emergency quota to the person. So this person is able to go to his parents during festival. Happy ending. Claps.

What about me and my family ? No such luck. I am based in eastern UP. My wife is a state government employee in MP. MP is going to assembly polls later in the month. Model code of conduct is in force in MP. So state government employees will not be given leave from now till the elections are over. So, unlike previous years, my wife and daughter will not join me for Deewaali at my place. First time ever for me to be away from my family during Deewaali. It happens. Elections are important. Country’s fate hinges on them. My wife often nags me to try and get myself posted in MP. Easier said than done, I tell myself sotto voce. Moreover, I feel that I am making a real contribution in the development of this place. It may look idealistic, but I feel that the nation will develop only if the backward areas of the nation, viz UP and Bihar develop. It is the duty of all people, including those from outside UP and Bihar, to help in the cause. I sincerely and seriously believe that I am adding my mite in this important work of nation building. I keep all these idealistic thoughts to myself of course. I do not think my wife will understand these sentiments. 🙂

Since all low hanging fruits, viz popular Deewaali songs, have already been plucked on past occasions, we are left with Deewaali songs that are obscure ones.

Here is an extremely obscure Deewaali song. It became available on YT when our own My Saradand Kamath uploaded it sometime back. The song is from “Badi Baat” (1944).

“Badi Baat” (1944) was produced and directed by Mazhar Khan for Mazhar Arts, Bombay. The movie had Swarnlata, Ulhas, Yakub, Mazhar Khan, Moti, Gulab, Khaleel, Madhusudan, Lalita, Mishra, Saguna, Ram Marathe, Baby Roshan, Chandra etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

Only The name of Kusum Mantri is mentioned in HFGK though the song seems to have at least another female voice, plus chorus. Swami Ramanand is the lyricist. Music is composed by Feroz Nizami.

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

I may have been unable to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

I take this opportunity wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deewaali.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 73 # Aaayo aayo Navratri tyohaar #
———————————————————————-

Season’s greetings and best wishes to all for the Navratri Festival starting today (10 october 2018)!!!

I have mentioned in a few of my earlier write-ups that festivals too bring back many memories and they in turn bring back memories of songs which we have heard years before… in my case ‘years before’ generally means ‘in my childhood days or in those years when I was growing’ 🙂

Today’s song is one such song which normally comes to my mind during celebration of the ‘Navratri festival’ every year. I was under impression that this song must have been posted on the blog earlier, however much to my surprise, this song is mot yet covered till now. And that gives me this opportunity to share this song today on the blog.

I vaguely remember that in our colony where we were staying then (for me after my birth in 1968 to 1984 when I was in eleventh standard :)) during Navratri Festival or Durga Pooja Festival the Durga Pooja Idol would be worshipped in the Colony Club or special ‘pandals’ arranged near the ‘Club Building’ and the ‘Stage’ (meant for the various programs held during the festival). However, unlike the ‘Ganpati Festival’ during which various ‘cultural programs’ would be held, during ‘Navratri’ it was mostly the staging of ‘Ramleela’ for nine/ten days.

I do not have any more special memories except a few songs that were played on the loud speakers and the “Ramleela” which I vaguely remember. Ttoday’s song is one such song that was frequently played on loud speakers during this festival and had been lying dormant in my memories since then.

The song that I am going to present today is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’.
Going by the date of passing of this movie by the Censor Board I was almost three years old then, when the movie was released. Johar whenever he combined with Mehmood in movies and Mehmood specially for his movies were always a point of discussion among the elders in the family. I remember watching ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’ and ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’ with my Uncles. I do not remember if I also watched ‘Johar Mehmood in Kashmir’. These movies had good songs or good entertaining songs, so the songs were also not easily forgettable given their performances on these songs.

“Johar Mehmood in Hongkong” (1971) was produced by Madan Chopra and K.Z. Sheth. It was directed by S.A. Akbar.

It was M.O. Bawazir’s presentation for Mahesh Ashish.

The movie had I.S. Johar, Mehmood, Sonia Sahni, Aruna Irani, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor, Tuntun, Manorama, Madhumati, Haroon, and Pran. Agha, Mukri, Jr. Mehmood, Polson, Shaikh, B.B. Bhalla, Raj Kishore, Khairati, Murad appear as Guest Artistes in this movie.

This movie was written by I.S. Johar who also wrote the screenplay and dialogues for this movie. Vithal Bankar was the editor for this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji Anandji who were assisted by Babla and where Parte was the arranger and Frank Fernand the Conductor.
There were Six songs in this movie penned by Qamar Jalalabadi (four songs) and two songs are jointly credited to Qamar Jalalabadi and Indeevar (as per HFGK).

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Shamshad Begam, Manna Dey and Usha Timothi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.
As per HFGK Lakshmi Shankar, Usha Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar’s voice has been in one song each, however their names are not mentioned in the titles of this movie (available on YT).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.01.1971.

So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Today’s song happens during the ‘Navratri Celebrations’ which all ‘Hindustanis’ living in Hong Kong celebrate every year and send the ‘Garba matka’ to India. Our heroes Mahesh and Ramesh (readers can easily guess who is Mahesh and who is Ramesh) who successfully flee away from jail with other accomplices after giving ‘Jamal ghota’ to Kamal Kapoor, Pran & Co and reach Murad (who is head of the Indian Embassy in the movie I guess) with the ‘secret formula’. Murad advices them that the formula can be easily sent to India in this ‘matka’.

‘Ambe maiyya’ ab hamaari aur hamaare desh ki raksha tere haath hai, desh ke drohi e pujaariyon ko Bharat bhejne se pehle hi khatm kar dena chahte hai, magar Ambe maiyya agar Ramesh aur Mahesh khatm ho jaayen to tu apni chhah bhujaaon se chhah Ramesh aur Mahesh paida kar ke desh ke drohiyon ko chakkar mein daal dena.
Jai Ho …

That is what Ramesh praises to Ambe Maa before the song …

And that is why we have this patriotic garba and seeking the blessings of the goddess to save the mother land and our country …

The movie ends with this song on a happy note where the enemies die their own death and our heroes board the flight for India dancing and enjoying with the ‘secret formula’ in the ‘Garba Pot’.

From today the auspicious festival starts all over India.In Gujarat especially the excitement and preparations for the festival had already begun much earlier when I was there. The ‘garba and dandia’ bhajans and songs had already started playing on in shops, restaurants and public places where the celebrations were to be held.

I had wiitnessed all that during my brief two weeks stay in Gujarat. I have returned back to my work place as per planning and had to travel on Sunday and reaching my destination on this Monday evening >:)I am missing all that excitement a lot now 🙂

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh. And since it involved Singer Mukesh I thought I should consult our Mahesh ji if I can do write-up with this song and he immediately responded that I can ‘go ahead’, thanks to Mahesh ji.

I also take this opportunity to wishing all a very ‘Happy Navratri Festival’ and may it be peaceful and enjoying for all and may the Goddess blessed us all with her blessings and gives us energy to do good for all and fight the evil within and around us …

Let us now enjoy this song composed by Kalyanji Anandji and sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh …

हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार

हम तो बालक तेरे माता
और तू जीवन दाता है
और तू जीवन दाता है
कोई उसको छू नहीं पाता
तेरी शरण जो आता है

तेरी शरण जो आता है
हे ए ए
आई सिंह पे सवार तेरी शक्ति अपार
तुझे अम्बे जगदम्बे जग सारा जाने रे
हो जग सारा जाने रे
आज अपना
आज अपना
दिखा दे चमत्कार

हो ओ आज अपना दिखा दे चमत्कार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
कर दे कर दे ए
भक्तों का बेड़ा पार
हो कर दे कर दे
भक्तों का बेड़ा पार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार

विपदा में है देश हमारा
तू ही बचाने वाली है
तू ही बचाने वाली है
आँचल में ये दीप छुपा ले
आंधी आने वाली है

आंधी आने वाली है
हे ए बैरी पीछे पड़े
हमें घेरे खड़े
तुझे अम्बे जगदम्बे जग सारा जाने रे
हो जग सारा जाने रे
देशद्रोही का
देशद्रोही का
कर दे बंटा धार
हो ओ देशद्रोही का
कर दे बंटा धार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
कर दे कर दे
भक्तों का बेड़ा पार
हो कर दे कर दे
भक्तों का बेड़ा पार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार

चारों खाने चित है दुश्मन
उसने हमको मान लिया आ
उसने हमको मान लिया
नाचो गाओ मौज मनाओ
मैय्या ने कल्याण किया

मैय्या ने कल्याण किया
हे ए ए ए
ऐसी देवी ने आज राखी भक्तों कि लाज
तुझे अम्बे जगदम्बे जग सारा जाने रे ए
हो ओ जग सारा जाने रे
हो नहीं भूलेंगे तेरा उपकार
हो ओ नहीं भूलेंगे तेरा उपकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
आयो आयो नवरात्रि त्यौहार
हो ओ आयो आयो नवरात्रि त्यौहार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
हो अम्बे मैय्या तेरी जय जयकार
