#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# The Special Voices of the decade – 3 # Jaspal Singh #
———————————————–———————————–

Welcome all to the third article in this series.

So far, we have the following two articles posted earlier on this blog under this series, where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

‘Maa ne kahaa thhaa o betaa’
‘Haseen haseen waadiyon o’

When I had decided to start this series, my plan was to post one article per month under this series. However, later I thought it was better to combine it with the anniversaries of the Singers if it too falls in the same month of my writing the article.

The song and the ‘voice’ of today was supposed to be covered to mark the end of this series, however there was a good development in the first week of this month (March’2018) which delayed this post and finally it is here today.

The voice that I am presenting today is a ‘’very very special’ and ‘nostalgic’ voice for me.
I can feel the fragrance of the soil of this great land – our country, the purity of green lush fields, a big river flowing with its natural beauty, a small beautiful remote village in the rural part of our country – India, the diversity of our culture and the sweetness of the dialects spoken in our country. In all of its way this voice takes me back to ‘my roots and my soil’ if I think I am able to correctly mention the feelings otherwise the feelings just cannot be expressed in words.

Just listen to this song ‘dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan’ .

And for that matter take this another song ‘geet gaata chal o saathi gungunaata chal’ from this same movie ‘Geet Gaata Chal -1975’

And then this beautiful ‘bhajan’ ‘O o o mangal bhawan amangal haari ee ee’, again from the same movie – ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’, its so soothing and so divine that I can keep it listening again and again just going on.

I remember these songs were played on loudspeakers continuously in a marriage function in our neighbourhood in the colony we were staying then.

I was seven and half years then when the movie was released in 1975.

Since then this voice and these songs also were growing on me as I keep growing over the years.
And yes, I had not watched this movie till many years since it was released. I get to watch it, may be on a TV channel, in the later years of nineties I think. But its songs were there with me and they keep growing on me and with me in my journey of life.

I had watched ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se-1978’, that too on TV around mid or later eighties if I remember correctly. But the ‘dohawali’ from this movie is as fresh ever and soothing whenever I listened to it even now.

I had also not watched ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’ when it was released or even after that for many years, but I had not and will never escape its magical title song because of the voice singing it and the range of this voice and its sweetness and its melody.

(after coming into contact with this blog I got an opportunity to share the following song from this movie sung by Jaspal Singh; ‘gagan ye samjhe chaand sukhi hai’ )

Those were the days when we were watching any movie coming our way and we were getting a chance to watch. But so far as I remember I didn’t get to watched all the above-mentioned movies then where this singer had his songs which were very popular during those years. But I did watch them when I was a grown adult and I think that was the right time for me to watch them.

One such movie is the 1982 movie ‘Nadiyaa Ke Paar’ of which the songs were so popular then. Those couple of years were the ‘most study focussed’ years for us the students (though I was still very casual in my approach and could not understand its seriousness then, which I can realize now  )
Well, coming back to the songs from this movie, all the songs from this movie were very popular then and all of them are my favorites too.

‘Saanchi kahen tore aawan se hamre’
‘Kaun disha mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa’

These songs from this movie and one of the voice i.e. the male voice of these songs is our ‘special voice’ of the ‘decade of seventies’ for this article today …

The voice I am talking about is none other than Jaspal Singh.

***

Jaspal Singh was born on 23rd March 1943 in Amritsar, Punjab. We wish him a belated “Happy Birthday” on this blog today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead!!!

However, yours ‘junior’ sincerely had already wished him personally over phone a ‘very very happy birthday’ and good wishes to him.

How I came to know about his birthdate also happens just by chance.

It so happened that, during my stay at Nagpur I came across this song (of today) which when I listened to it I liked it so much and immediately fall in love with it. I did share it then to Atul ji but for a different occasion.
(However, now I feel that this is the perfect song for me to share with this article here when I am presenting this voice under this series).

At that time, I do also search for a detailed biographic information about him and after getting his contact number from sources on internet I do make him a call and express my gratitude to him for giving us the treasure of many ‘unforgettable songs’ and for his voice being part of our (people like me who were in pre-teens and teens then) growing years. I had also expressed my wish to meet him sometime if I get a chance of it, which he appreciated whole heartedly and also assured that he can share all information about him whatever is possible and if one wants to go through it.

This happened immediately after the November’16 Mumbai Gang out, so I enquired with our respected Shishir ji, if he had interviewed this personality for this blog, which he told me that it is in his future plans.

Well, from the information available on internet then (even now) it came to my notice that none of the sources (which I came across) had mentioned the birthdate of this personality so I was curious to know about it.

Recently when Atul ji ‘Yippeeee’d’ this movie ‘Geet Gaaata Chal -1975’ on the blog and posted couple of the songs sung by Jaspal Singh ji, I thought I should also write up and complete my post under this series.

After a gap of almost one year and half I thought I should call Jaspal Singh ji and try to get this information directly from him. He was very happy that somebody from a long distance (now from Kenya) had called him and was interested to know about him. He readily shared the information to me which also had an interesting ‘thing’ associated with it.

As mentioned above he was born on 23rd March 1943 at Amritsar Punjab. However, on all official records his date of birth had been recorded as 28th March 1943.

(for the information of our readers I would like to share once again that yours ‘junior’ sincerely have already wished him personally on phone on his birthday on 23rd March itself – ‘thanks, and so nice of you’ was what he replied to me)

Jaspal Singh came from Amritsar where his father was having the business of Hotel and their Hotel was once situated just opposite to the famous ‘Golden Temple in Amritsar’ (which was later demolished and was compensated by the government, as mentioned by him in his interview on RSTV-Guftagoo).

Among the five siblings they are four brothers and one sister. (I hope I am correct as per what I can learn from his interview on RSTV-Guftagoo).

Jaspal Singh completed his graduation from Amritsar and later on persuaded LLB from Ghaziabad. However, he was neither interested in business nor doing the ‘advocacy’. His only interest was to sing and become a ‘play back singer’ which his mother and sister supported well.

Jaspal Singh, since his childhood was fond of singing and he was singing in his school and college functions and was popular among his circles in Amritsar and was invited for singing in functions.
He too (like other upcoming singers) was a great fan of Rafi Saab whom he admires a lot and later on he got a chance to sing with Rafi Saab in films which was a great day for him.

His journey to movies and becoming a play back singer was full of hard work and struggle and he succeeded only because he had this talent, passion and instinct to become a play back singer for movies.

It so happened that his Sister got married and was settled in Mumbai (Bombay) in those years. This came like a blessing for young Jaspal Singh who thereafter keep visiting Bombay, initially during the ‘summer vacation’ and thereafter very often to fulfil his ‘dream’ of becoming a ‘playback singer’ for movies.

His Sister knowing about his passion and intentions persuaded her husband to try that Jaspal Singh gets an opportunity to sing in movies.
There continued efforts resulted in Usha Khanna ji giving him his first break for playback singing in the movie ‘Bandish-1968’ where his first recorded song was a solo song ‘dekho logo ye kaisa zamaana sambhalo sambhalo tang libaada’ which went un-noticed.
Usha Khanna ji give him another chance in 1969 to sung in the movie ‘Anjaan Hai Koi’, this time a duet with Mahendra Kapoor which due to its tune and words was somewhat noticed and reach a larger audience.

However, he was still far away from the ‘big’ and ‘hit’ …

In the meantime, given to the pressure by his father to join the family business in Amritsar he keeps visiting Amritsar, but since he was not interested in Business he returns back to Mumbai.
Later on, his father also gives up to his wish and allow him to stay in Mumbai and even bought a ‘flat’ for him in Mumbai which he is still staying in.

Jaspal Singh also started taking lessons from his guruji Mahendrajeet Singh ji who always encouraged him a lot and always supported him and insisted that he should not leave Mumbai and ‘singing’.
As his struggle for singing opportunities and a major break continued Jaspal Singh also too on practicing as lawyer ship with a senior lawyer in Mumbai and started attending the court proceedings.

***
‘Geet Gaata Chal’ …

Luckily, he got a chance to meet Ravindra Jain who also staying in the same locality and who was aware of his singing.

A ‘big break’ was already waiting for Jaspal Singh when Rajshri Productions were looking for a ‘new singer’ for their upcoming new movie starring Sachin.
Ravindra Jain was the music director of this movie and he thought to give Jaspal Singh a chance for singing.
And, after going through the ‘tests’ Jaspal Sing was given a chance to sing ‘dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan’, which also was his first recorded song for the movie.

The main title song of the movie came to him only after lot of consultations between the producer of the movie Rajkamal Barjatya and the music director Ravindra Jain who was initially reluctant to give him this song, which he thought was the main song of the movie and he thought a new singer would not be able to do justice with it and had it been gone a wrong way would have spoiled the movie and the music of this movie.
Finally, he was called to sing this ‘title song’ of the movie and after recording of that he was also offered the remaining songs of the movie to sing. (one song of the movie viz. Shyam abhimaani o Shyam abhimaani was already recorded earlier in Rafi Saab’s voice)

However, the title song ‘geet gaata chal o saathi gungunaata chal ’sung by Jaspal Singh went on to create a ‘magic’ for him and for the movie and for the ‘history of ‘Hindi film music’ and this song even today after so many years is as fresh as it was when the movie was released.

This was the first major break he got and which opened for him many avenues further, though he mainly sung for Ravindra Jain (I think so, till we arrive at the total statistics of songs sung by him.)

Thereafter he got to sing in many movies mainly for actor Sachin and many of his songs went on to become very popular and they are as fresh as they were then in the minds of the movie goers and HFM lovers.

***
Here it will be interesting to know if he got to sing in movies after ‘Bandish-1968’ and ‘Anjaan Hai Koi-1969’, because his next song was in 1975 for ‘Geet Gaata Chal’.

Well, after ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’ he left his ‘practice in lawyership’ and went on to singing in around one hundred fifty movies (to be authenticated).
However tragically or unfortunately for the history of ‘HFM’ the so-called ‘big banners’ didn’t offer him to sing in their productions.
Nevertheless, the songs that he got to sung so far cannot be forgotten and some of them will remain immortal in the memories of HFM lovers.

The song ‘jab jab tu mere saamne aaye’ from ‘Shyam Tere Kitne Naam-1977’ sung for Sachin is his personal favourite.

On this blog I got the opportunity to share few of his songs (few I mentioned above) and viz. ‘yaar dagaa de gaya dulhan ko le gaya’

His active years in singing last till 2009-2010 (as mentioned by him in his interview on RSTV).
By then already HFM had gone many changes and seen many new singers making entry into movies and singing, so naturally Jaspal Singh also got forgotten by Music Directors.

However, given the quantity of songs he sung, and his not so frequent appearing in movie songs credit some keep wondering that ‘where did he vanish?’😊.

On our blog we have so far only fifteen of ‘Jaspal Singh Songs’ posted, so all those who wondered where he was vanished can try to search for his songs also can try to get them posted here 😊 sharing them with their memories associated with his beautiful songs.

From his interview on RSTV (which is also the main source for this article) and as mentioned by Jaspal Singh himself he is living a happy and contented life with his family (wife, a daughter and a son) and continuing with his riyaaz and readings.
He had been doing stage shows as per demand and whenever he got opportunities for that. (the interview was done in 2014 i.e. only four years back).

That brings us to the today’s song being presented here on the blog and the movie it is from …

“Paayal Ki Jhankaar-1980” was directed by Satyen Bose for Ruchi Films, Bombay.

It had Komal Mahuwakar, Alankar, Surinder Kaur (new discovery), Arun Kumar, Shail Chaturvedi, C.S. Dubey, Virendra Gaud, Shrikant Moghe, Anand Joshi, Brijendra Mohan, Pardesi, Master Abhitabh, Deepak, Sudha Shivpuri, Ranjana Sachdev, Bandini, Namrata, Asha Sharma, Rajraani and Nisha.
Master Mayur and Master Sandeep make a guest appearance in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Rajkamal and its songs were written by Maya Govind.

This movie had total eleven songs in it and it was passed by Censor Board on 23.08.1980.
Aarti Mukherjee, Alka Yagnik, Anand Kumar C., Jaspal Singh, Purushottam Das Jalota, Sulakshana Pandit and Yesudas gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

Interestingly the song being presented today is the only song sung by Jaspal Singh in this movie and the only male solo too. The other male voices are appearing in duets song only.

Though I had not watched this movie its name was in my vague memories so I had been waiting for sharing of a song of this movie to introduce it on the blog. And it also serves the purpose of bringing ‘movies having same titles’ on the blog.

There was a movie with the same title “Paayal Ki Jhankaar” in 1968 which has already made an entry on the blog.

Today ‘Paayal Ki Jhankaar-1980’ makes a debut on the blog …

Let us now enjoy the today’s song in the unique and amazing voice of Jaspal Singh …
Lyrics are by Maya Govind and music is composed by Raj Kamal ji.

जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
गहरे पानी पैठ
जो बौरा डूबन डरा आ आ
रहा किनारे बैठ
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
गहरे पानी पैठ
जो बौरा डूबन डरा आ आ
रहा किनारे बैठ
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

मन कि सच्ची लगन हमेशा
मंजिल तक पहुंचाती
बहते बहते जैसे नदिया
सागर से मिल जाती
ओ श्यामा
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ

तुलसी मीरा आ सुर के जैसा
मिला न खोजन हारा
करके तपस्या लाये भगीरथ
गंगा की जल धारा
ओ श्यामा
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

बैजू ने गुरु खोजा
स्वामी हरिदास को पाया
बालक ध्रुव ने सच खोजा
हो श्यामा हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
बालक ध्रुव ने सच खोजा
ध्रुव तारा बन मुस्काया
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

Blog Day : 3486 Post No. : 14002

Post number 14000 was written by Sudhir Ji on 1 february 2018. In that post, he made several interesting observations and he wanted my take on them. I will try to cover those points and make some points of my own.

While brieflyly discussing the previous thousandth posts, Sudhir Ji made this observation:

The 1K post

He did write that he expects the blog to go from “strength to strength” and that he would “. . .add many more thousands of songs […] in the times to come”. So this is one question I would like Atul ji to respond to specifically – was his expectations that we shall reach, where we have reached today, and still going strong??

It was 30 march 2009 when this 1000th post was published. That was nine years ago. The world was a very different place from what it has become now. I was based at Jabalpur and I hoped to stay there in future as well. I was happily settled there. It turned out that got transferred to another state in a few months time. If I was not able to foresee what was going to happen in a few months time, then how was I going to see into the future of the blog. 🙂

I was then like a batsman who worries about where his next run is going to come from. By that time, I had worked out my standard strategy of posting 6 songs daily for three days followed by seven songs on the fourth day thus adding 25 songs every four day. Repeating the same process four times, that would give me 100 songs in 16 days. So I was happily clocking 100 songs every 16 days. Those were simple days when we had not thought about “debutant” movies, “YIPPEE” movies etc. Even the concept of contributions by regulars had not taken shape. We did not have the team of contributors that we now have. I did not even have my pets at that time that have become such an important part of my life for the last six- seven years.

The pages about list of songs that we take for granted now a days were not there at that time the 1000th post was published. The “yearwise list of songs” was introduced seven days later, on 6 april 2009, followed by “moviewise list of songs” on 19 april 2009.

Very few songs were covered till then, so deciding upon “new” songs to cover was quite simple and easy those days. I was able to cover my six to seven song a day fairly comfortably, by the first half of the day itself.

No, I never thought at that time that the blog would one day have 14000 songs in it. At that time, I thought that I would run out of songs to cover after I had covered around 2500 songs. 🙂

Song post number 2000 was a rail song posted on 27 september 2009. The blog by now has 90 rail songs. I still have at least one great rail song up my sleeve. It is lying in the drafts for last seven years. It is a kind of song that may be used for a future thousandth song.

The “music directorwise list of songs” was introduced on 3 november 2009 and thus the three important song lists were put in place a little after the posting of the 2000th song in the blog.

There has been this demand for singerwise list of songs as well. Even that may come up, if I could persuade myself to do that. 🙂

As far as Raja’s tendency to enrich English dictionary with words like ‘mind-bloggling’, ‘gangout’, etc is concerned, let me assure our readers that Raja has been at it even before this blog began. We have been together in a cricket forum since 2005 and it was then and there that he had coined a term called “Atulism” for my kind of humour. He seems to have inspired others in the blog and now we find others too coining terms like “YIPPEE”, “Atulites” etc. 🙂

Raja had written the writeups for the 3000th and 4000th posts in the blog. These two posts also happened to be the thousandth posts of Lata and Rafi respectively.

5000th post was unprecedented for the blog for the levels of planning that it involved. It too combined an artist’s personal milestone with blog milestone, but the artist was far lesser known that Lata and Rafi. This less known artist, viz Bulo C Rani, was the composer of the iconic qawwali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“. This song was a long pending “farmaish” by many people.

The planning for this post began by the time the blog had around 4700 songs in it. Bulo C Rani was only on 21 songs at that time. His songs (most of them obscure) began to be posted in the blog with suspicious regularity and his 100th post coincided with the 5000th song in the blog on 13 november 2011.

This date, 13 november became an important date as far as thousandth posts for this blog are concerned. It was exactly one year later on 13 november 2012 saw the 7000th song being posted, though at that time this coincidence went unnoticed. It was only while we were planning for 9000th post that we realised that 13 november 2011 and 2012 had seen posting of 5000th and 7000th posts. So we went into an overdrive to ensure that the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013.

The above observations also mean that the blog was covering 2000 songs per year from 2011 to 2013. This led to the blog achieving its peak strike rate of 4.63 songs per day when the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013. Had we maintained this rate till today (2 february 2018), we would be on 16140 instead on 14000 !

We were unable to maintain that rate and we have fallen to a rate barely above 4 songs per day. But the fact that the blog still adds “new” songs daily (albeit at a lower rate) without fail means that we are going on and on and adding more songs.

Preparation for the 10000th song was quite a remarkable exercise involving tremendous teamwork and planning for nearly three weeks. All regulars of the blog wrote articles and they themselves were introduced through articles written by other regulars. That mega exercise then culminated into the posting of the 10000 th song that rewrote HFM history. The behind the story tales of the preparations and waiting for the 10000th post are fond memories that are still fresh in the minds of regulars despite the passage of more than three years.

The way the blog has evolved with time is something that neither I nor others would have visualised in the past. We nowadays interact online on whatsapp, email, facebook, phone etc. We have had several togethers, inadvertently coined “gangout” by Raja. They are in addition to bilateral meetings, of course.

I have attended just one “gangout” in December 2014 at Mumbai, which has been my only such meeting so far. I have had meetings with some regulars at Delhi, Nagpur, Lucknow etc as well.

The interactions with other regulars have led to several ideas that have been implemented in the blog. The list of songs (yearwise, moviewise, MD wise) were introduced as results of suggestions by Raja. The concept of YIPPEE movies came from Pradeep Raghunathan. Covering missing movies in the blog was an idea that came from Khyati Bhatt.

HFM related statistics that are available online (if any) are nowhere in the same league as cricket related statistics. I dream of the day when we will be able to have authentic statistics for artists the way we have authentic statistics from cricketers. Unlike cricket, where records are kept thanks to the British legacy of discipline in cricket, Indians have failed to keep authentic records of their history, including HFM history. Still, there are some diehard HFM fans, and some of them are our own regulars, who are helping collect hard to find details of HFM and putting them in one place for easy reference. We in this blog have covered all the available songs of KL Saigal and Suraiyya, and we are just a few songs short for artists like Naushad, SD Burman, OP Nayyar etc. Even in case of Rafi and Lata, we have already covered nearly 60 % of all their songs.

Whenever we post century (or thousandth) post of an artist, we try to give moviewise breakups of all their songs. For instance, I have given such breakups for Suraiyya, Rajinder Krishan, Naushad, OP Nayyar etc. My plan is to give such breakups for all artists who have more than 100 songs in the blog. That would be extremely useful statistical exercise in the field of HFM. So keep watching the blog in future when we add statistics for all major HFM artists.

We in this blog are extremely strong when it comes to making resolutions and sticking to them. We are more than one month into 2018 and we have managed to live up to the new year blog resolutions for 2018 so far. Even today (2 February 2018), the “debutant” movie (number 3820) has been introduced. So it is time now to introduce the YIPPEE movie of the day.

The YIPPEE movie of the day is ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975). This movie was directed by Hiren Nag for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. This movie had Sachi, Sarika, Khyati (new discovey), Madan Puri, Manhar desai, Agha, Dhumal, Sundar, V Gopal, CS Dube, Madhup Sharma, Pardesi, Jugnu, Sriram, Surendra Singh, Prakash Mishra, Imtiaz Pathan, Junior Mehmood, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Minu Mahtab, Saroj Borkar, Padma Khanna etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Following are the details:

Here is the ninth and final song from this movie. This final song is a joie de vivre bailgaadi song where Sachin is seen joyously lip syncing this song while moving ever so slowly on a bullock cart, with Sarika too as a co passenger. They would take frequent breaks enroute showing that they were enjoying the journey rather than thinking about the destination. this archtypical Rajshree Production kind of bailgaadi songs were used in some subsequent Rajshree Productions movie as well. The most memorable to such bailgaadi song was Kaun disaa mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa from “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982).

The song is sung by Jaspal Singh. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director.

With this song, ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
o dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
nadiya bahe re saare bandhanon ko tod
phoolo ki hansi mein basi hai meri jan
mujhko to apna sa lage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
man ko na bandha maine kisi ke bhi sang
jal ke oopar tairoon main hans ke samaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
ओ धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
नदिया बहे रे सारे बंधनों को तोड़
फूलों कि हँसी में बसी है मेरी जान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
मन को ना बाँधा मैंने
किसी के भी संग
जल के ऊपर तैरूँ
मैं हंस के समान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

Here is the eighth song from “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) to appear in the blog. This song is acollection of Tulsidas’s chaupais from Ramcharitmanas. The song is sung by Jaspal Singh and it is picturised as a Ram bhajan on Sachin, with most other important characters in the movie joining him in chorus.

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

It is a nice and soothing bhajan, best heard in early mornings.

When I was a kid, I lived in a small township where we had a medical centre as part of the facilities within the township. It was manned by a fine doctor, Dr. Sinha. He was from Bihar, never spoke much, but his diagnosis was excellent. He never over-dosed patients – I remember he would often send me back home without prescribing any medicines at all. To my disappointment! 🙂 I’d get well on my own, within a day or so.
