Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog – 12
———————————————————————–

‘Sajni’, a 1956 black and white social film was produced under the banner of Golden Pictures, Bombay by Isabel Cliford and PR Patkar. The film was directed by Vasant Rao Painter. The music, the main highlight off the film, was by the great Sudhir Phadke (popularly known as “Babuji’) with the assistance of Shri Jog.

The star cast according to HFGK includes Sulochana, Anoop Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Sapru, Krushna Kumari, Maruti, Gope, Nimbalkar, Mashelkar, Anand Tiwari, Shardul, Bhiku Deulkar, Thakkar, Mantri, Shailesh, Neela and Master Pakku.

The film had six songs, all by Swar Samragni Lata-ji, whose Birthday we are celebrating today, four solos and two duets with MD Sudhir Phadke ji himself. One duet was written by Nakhshab and the rest five songs were by the great poet Pt Narendra Sharma.

Coming to the superb song, it is such a beautiful haunting melody in Yaman Raag, which will linger in your mind for a long long time after listening to it.  One of the most beautiful songs from the team of Lataji, Sudhir Phadke, and Pt. Narendra Sharma, though “Jyoti Kalash Chhalke” from the same artistes is more famous in comparison (no doubt, that one is a masterpiece too). This sublime song, is also a masterpiece, soulfully sung by Lataji.  Indeed, this song is a musical treat for all of us, the lovers of good music.

Akroor ji, the messenger of King Kamsa, has come to Gokul to fetch Krushn to Mathura.  Knowing that Krushn is to go away the next morning, the pain in the hearts of Gopis is superbly described by the poet in this divine song.

Music director Roshan (another great MD) wrote somewhere about this song:

“Sublime, magical, spellbinding… and divine, these are some of the words that come to mind for this masterpiece. What a wonderful gift to the listeners from Lataji, Sudhir Phadke, and Pt. Narendra Sharma. Lataji has done complete justice to the words so characteristic of songs based on Krishna and virah ras and to SP’s delicate tune. Truly, a soulful rendition from her.”

My personal request to all Atulites is to listen carefully to the pathos-filled words and the soulful suitable music more than once. I am sure, if you follow the meaning of the lyrics, you are sure to moist your eyes.  After that, you have earned my special thanks too.

From my side, I wish Gaan-Saraswati  Lata Didi, to enjoy many years of well-deserved healthy and happy life.


Song – Ja Re Chandr’ Jaa Re Chandr’ Aur Kahin Jaa Re (Sajni) (1956) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Pt Narendra Sharma, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re
ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

brindaban soona hai
soona mann mera
bidhnaa kuchh aisee kar
kal na ho savera
jharte nayan
bharte nayan
doob rahe taare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

nayan neer
mann mein peer
itni si kahaani
hai ye preet
reet sakhi
pehle kyun na jaani
kal ki sun kal na parey
vikal mann pukaare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

pran harey
kaan parey
murali dhun aali
mohan mann naam sakhi
mohan vanmaali
kaise rahe praan
rahe jab na praan pyare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re..

ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re

जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे
जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

बृंदावन सूना है
सूना मन मेरा
बिधना कुछ ऐसी कर
कल ना हो सवेरा
झरते नयन
भरते नयन
डूब रहे तारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

नयन नीर
मन में पीर
इतनी से कहानी
हाय ये प्रीत रीत सखी
पहले क्यूँ ना जानी
कल की सुन कल ना परे
विकल मन पुकारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

प्राण हरे
कान परे
मुरली धुन आली
मोहन मन नाम सखी
मोहन वनमाली
कैसे रहे प्राण
रहे जब ना प्राण प्यारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे

Today (17 september 2016) is the 17th death anniversary of Hasrat Jaipuri (15 April 1922 – 17 Sept 1999).

Many music lovers may be forgiven for assuming that Hasrat Jaipuri mostly teamed up for Shankar Jaikishan and he hardly worked with other music directors. He has worked with most other big as well as not so big name music directors during his career.

Whenever I listen to songs rendered by Hafeez Khan Mastana, popularly known as Khan Mastana, I feel very sad and sorry for him. He was the son of Ustad Waheed Khan of Etawah Gharana who was a well-known sitar and surbahar player. The renowned sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan was Khan Mastana’s first cousin.

Today (31 july 2016) is a day that all music lover know only too well. It seems like yesterday when we heard the unexpected news that Rafi was no more. He was just 55 years old at that time and he still had many years of singing career ahead of him. In a way, his demise signified the hastening of the end of the golden era of HFM, an era which had begun when his himself was making his mark as a playback singer in 1940s.

The words of the song may make people to feel that the song under discussion is the famous Talat Mehmood song Shaam e gham ki kasamsong from “Footpath”(1953). But no, this song is different. The Talat Mehmood song has already been discussed in the blog more than seven years ago. The song under discussion is from a movie called “Dil Ki Duniya”(1949) which predates the Talat Mehmood song by four years.

Though I would like to be more systematic in discussing the songs in the blog, I have not been able to put my intentions to practice. One of my aims these days is to discuss a song of 1930s every day in a bid to cover all the available songs of 1930s. Another aim is to cover all the songs of movies. Yet another aim is to ensure that songs from movies as yet unrepresented in the blog are discussed in the blog. Then there are artists nearing their landmarks or artists having their anniversaries and so their songs must be discussed.
