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


Song – Shaam Thi Tum The Maine Chhedi Ghazal (Neelam Sahani NFS) (1981) Singer– Neelam Sahani, Lyrics– Firaaq Ghorakhpuri, MD – Jaidev

Lyrics

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

ae hawaao khilaaye hain kisne
ae hawaao khilaaye hain kisne
aasmaanon pe. . .
aasmaanon pe mehr o maah ke kanwal
aasmaanon pe mehr o maah ke kanwal
aasmaanon pe mehr o maah ke kanwal
sham thi tum the
maine chhedi ghazal
sham thi tum the
 
ab sahaara nahin raha koi
ab sahaara nahin raha koi
ab sahaara nahin raha koi
zindagi se. . .
zindagi se kaho kuchh ab to sambhal
zindagi se kaho kuchh ab to sambhal
sham thi tum the
maine chhedi ghazal
sham thi tum the
 
dard e manzil jo dil mein uth’ata hai
dard e manzil jo dil mein uth’ata hai
dard e manzil jo dil mein uth’ata hai
bas usi. . .
bas usi dard ke saahare chal
bas usi dard ke sahaare chal
sham thi tum the
maine chhedi ghazal
sham thi tum the
maine chhedi ghazal
jal uthhe. . .
jal uthhe muskuraahaton ke kanwal
sham thi tum the
maine chhedi ghazal
sham thi tum the

शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
जल उठे॰ ॰ ॰
जल उठे मुस्कुराहटों के कंवल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे॰ ॰ ॰
शाम थी तुम थे॰ ॰ ॰

ए हवाओ खिलाये हैं किसने
ए हवाओ खिलाये हैं किसने
आसमानों पे॰ ॰ ॰
आसमानों पे मेह्र ओ माह के कंवल
आसमानों पे मेह्र ओ माह के कंवल
आसमानों पे मेह्र ओ माह के कंवल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे॰ ॰ ॰

अब सहारा नहीं रहा कोई
अब सहारा नहीं रहा कोई
अब सहारा नहीं रहा कोई
ज़िंदगी से॰ ॰ ॰
ज़िंदगी से कहो कुछ अब तो संभल
ज़िंदगी से कहो कुछ अब तो संभल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे॰ ॰ ॰

दर्द ए मंज़िल जो दिल में उठता है
दर्द ए मंज़िल जो दिल में उठता है
दर्द ए मंज़िल जो दिल में उठता है
बस उसी॰ ॰ ॰
बस उसी दर्द के  सहारे चल
बस उसी दर्द के  सहारे चल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
जल उठे॰ ॰ ॰
जल उठे मुस्कुराहटों के कंवल
शाम थी तुम थे
मैंने छेड़ी ग़ज़ल
शाम थी तुम थे॰ ॰ ॰
