Blog Day :

4616 Post No. : 16252

Today is the 8th of March.
A date that has an immediate connect with those who love Urdu poetry, and lyrics of Hindi films.

They celebrate it every year as the birth anniversary of one of the giants of 20th century Urdu poetry, and easily one of the most highly regarded lyricists the Hindi film industry has known.

I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi, of course.
He is right up there as one of the greatest – and I don’t think anyone disputes this.

It’s no secret to those who have read my previous posts here that I’m a massive fan of Sahir. I’ve written many posts on him here – on practically every birth and death anniversary of his. And even some in between.

And yet today is an extra extra special day.

For it’s not just another birth anniversary of his – it is his birth CENTENARY.

Yes, he was born on 8th March 1921 – in other words, exactly 100 years ago.

I need to take a deep breath here to take in this occasion.

What a momentous one it is!

I suppose a centenary is also an opportunity to take a step back and look at what the person’s influence has been over the period in question.

And that is what I hope to do a little bit of here in this post.

Sahir passed away in 1980 – he was only 59 at the time.

But what a life!

Like Lincoln supposedly said “It’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years”.

Sahir lived a life that influenced not only people during his lifetime, but is also inspirational for people, like me and many others, 40 years after his death.

(I hope you can hear this from up there, Sahir saab!)

To understand the influence of Sahir, we need to look at him as more than just a poet.
There were poets before him – and there have been poets after him too.
In his own words, “mujhse pehle kitne shaayar aaye aur aakar chale gaye” and “kal aur aayenge naghmon ki khilti kaliyaan chunne waale”.
And it’s true.
And mind you, they have all, in their own ways, been fabulous too.
We should not demean any of their poetic abilities.

And yet where Sahir stands out, even while being exceptional as a poet, is in being exceptional in speaking out against power and oppression.

No one, NO ONE, did it as well as Sahir.
Or as frequently.

And for that, Sahir is in a league of one.

He exemplified the saying “The pen is mightier than the sword” better than any other poet I know, post-independence, with his poetry repeatedly exposing the hypocrisy in Indian society, and the ills prevalent across various sections of it. He railed against patriarchy and misogyny, against capitalists exploiting labour, against the government silencing dissent.

How can you NOT love such a person?

It all probably started early in Sahir’s life, when, having to choose between his rich father and his suffering mother, he chose the latter.

Maybe that was the trigger for him for the rest of his life, because he always spoke up for the poor, the underprivileged, the oppressed, the marginalized.

Of course there’s more to Sahir than just this.
He had amazing variety too.
Romantic songs. The songs of Hum Dono, Taj Mahal, Gumraah, Humraaz, Shagun and Waqt come immediately to my mind.
Philosophical songs. Main zindagi ka saath, aage bhi jaane na tu, mann ri tu kaahe na dheer dhare, kabhi khud pe…
Bhajans. Aan milo aan milo Shyam saanvre , Allah tero naam and tora mann darpan kehlaaye come to mind.
Qawwalis. Songs of Barsaat Ki Raat and Taj Mahal, for example.
Songs on mother-child relationship – Mujhe Jeene Do, Dhool Ka Phool and Trishul, among others.
Pure fun, zany songs. Sar jo tera chakraaye, aye meri topi palat ke aa.

Each one a gem.

And yet, as I look back on this centenary occasion, it is Sahir’s songs that speak of society, and speak TO society, that I would consider as his most significant and lasting influence.

Without them too, he would be a GREAT poet, no doubt.
But with them, he elevates himself from being just a great poet, to being a decent and conscious human being.

And that to me is far more important than anything else.

So let’s quickly run through some of his poetry where he talks about, or, to, society.
There are many songs of course, but I’ll just mention a few here.

Ye kooche ye neelaam ghar dilkashi ke – Pyaasa (1957)
Ye mehlon ye takhton – Pyaasa (1957)
Saathi haath badhaana – Naya Daur (1957)
Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko – Sadhna (1958)
Tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega – Dhool Ka Phool (1959)
Wo subah kabhi to aayegi – Phir Subah Hogi (1958)
Cheen-o-Arab hamaara – Phir Subah Hogi (1958)
Khuda-e-bartar – Taj Mahal (1963)
Na munh chhupa ke jiyo – Humraaz (1967)
Ponchh kar ashq apni aankhon se – Naya Raasta (1970)
Samaj ko badal daalo – Samaj Ko Badal Daalo (1970)

Sahir’s lyrics for such songs were piercing – they went straight to the heart.
It was as if he was pouring out his agony, venting his frustration at society. Showing it a mirror, exposing its hypocrisy.

For example, these seemingly innocuous lines (Sadhna-1958):

kaho jee tum kya kya khareedoge
yahaan to har cheez bikti hai

mohabbat bechti hoon main
sharaafat bechti hoon main
na ho ghairat to le jo
ki ghairat bechti hoon main

Powerful.

Of course, it was not always doom and gloom in his lyrics.
Even while he was critical of society and its ills, he also wrote uplifting lyrics, with hope in them.
Like na munh chhupa ke jiyo , ponchh kar ashq, wo subah kabhi to aayegi mentioned above.
So it’s a combination of frustration and hope – which is probably a pretty accurate representation of his own personality. 🙂
Sahir was himself known to be fairly moody – cheerful one moment, morose the next.

I can keep on and on about Sahir and his songs – I haven’t even scratched the surface.
I haven’t even talked about gems like “pyar par bas to nahin” – Sone Ki Chidiya (1958). But then, one really can’t do justice to Sahir in one post.

So I’m going to force myself to move on – and get to the song for this post.

Before I get to the song, one other thing.

Today, the 8th of March, is also celebrated as International Women’s Day.

It is such a coincidence that both Sahir’s birth date and this date are the same.

Or was it pre-ordained in a sense, because if there was one person who regularly spoke up for women, their rights, how they’ve been oppressed, it was Sahir.

Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko from Sadhna-1958 is of course one of Hindi cinema’s classics. I’ve heard this song many times – and every time it gives me a punch in the gut.

But there were other lesser-known songs too.

And this song which I’m posting today is in that category.

It is from Jiyo Aur Jeene Do (1982).

Since Sahir passed away in 1980, I’m presuming this was one of his last few songs.
Or maybe he had written this earlier, but it got used only later in this film.

Anyway, as usual, it is Avinashji who has helped me with this.
He sent me the lyrics – and, considering it is Sahir’s Day AND Woman’s Day today, it seems to be just the right song for the occasion.

I haven’t seen the film, so I can’t comment about the situation, but the words of the song are powerful – and typically Sahir.

As usual, he talks about exploitation of women in Indian society.
And he references often to Seeta to bring home his point.
How women even today have to go through Agni Pariksha like Seeta had to.
How every woman is expected to just accept oppression without protest.
How even Seeta, who accompanied Ram during his exile, had to listen to his admonition of her.
How a woman can be expected to save herself in a world that has been created for man.
How, when even Ram could be influenced against Seeta, what hope for mere mortals?
How it is the lot of women like Seeta to be born in every era only to bear the burdens of this world.

I must admit the lyrics are very depressing.
Possibly some of the most depressing I have ever come across.
And I’d really like to think the lyrics are also highly exaggerated, and this isn’t today’s reality anyway. After all these lyrics are from more than 40 years ago, and a lot has changed since.

Or has it?

Yes, on one level, it has.
Many more women are better off today than they were 40 years ago.
More educated, more independent.
And yet, most of these are probably from middle- or upper classes of society.
(And even amongst them, there are many horror stories that don’t come to light).
But beyond these, there are many millions of women in India for whom life is a daily struggle.
From the moment they wake up early in the morning, to the moment they finally go to sleep that night, it is a day of just work, work and work. Women are taken so much for granted that society expects nothing less from them.
A woman just relaxing or enjoying herself is a rare sight – it almost seems out of place.
And so many women (especially among the poor) have sadly internalized this lifestyle of struggle, so they think it’s the most normal thing to do.
And I haven’t even talked about women’s safety here – that’s another minefield of a topic where, thanks to men, women don’t feel safe at all anytime during the day, every single day of their lives.
As a man, enjoying freedom that I take for granted, I just cannot imagine how it must be to live like this. All one’s life.

So yes, LOTS to think about.
And LOTS of work to do.
And the ball is in the court of MEN, not WOMEN.
For the simple reason that the cause of the problem is MEN, not WOMEN.

So then I think, however depressing the lyrics of this Sahir song are, are they more depressing than the actual lives of many women in India?

Anyway, this is supposed to be a day of celebration – I do not want to spoil the mood.
And yet, I cannot pretend – so if you don’t mind, I’d like it to be treated as a day of reflection for men too. Sahir would’ve liked that.

Thank you, Sahir saab, for your searing poetry. And for always standing up for the oppressed, and raising awareness on the right issues.
It is entirely our failing as a society that we have failed to make the lyrics you wrote all those decades ago irrelevant.
They are just as relevant today as they were when they were written.

And on that extremely sobering note, let me now end this post.
Thank you for reading.

Song-Seeta ke liye likkhaa hai yahi (Jiyo Aur Jeene Do)(1982) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Chup chup apni jaan pe sah jaa aa aa
Duniya ka anyaay
Koyi nahin is dharti par
Jo tera dard bataaye

Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Dukh sah ke bhi mukh se kuchh na kahe
Man ko dheeraj ki shikshaa de
Seeta ke liye likha hai yahi

Gairon ke kadwe bol sune
Apnon ka atyaachaar sahe
Gairon ke ae kadwe bol sune
Apnon ka atyaachaar sahe
Jis Raam ke sang ban ban bhatke
Us Raam ki bhi dutkaar sahe
Dharti mein samaane se pehle
Dharti mein samaane se pehle
Dharti ki tarah har bhaar sahe
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi

Purushon ki banaayi duniyaa mein
Kya ik naari ka maan bache
Purushon ki banaayi ee duniyaa mein
Kya ik naari ka maan bache
Jis zahar se Raam ka man na bachaa
Us zahar se kya insaan bache
Jo reet yugon se jaari hai
Jo reet yugon se jaari hai
Us reet se kaise jaan bache
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

Is andhi bahri nagari mein
Jab jab Seeta ko aana hai
Is andhi bahri nagari mein
Jab jab Seeta ko aana hai
Jeete ji kasht uthhaana
Marne pe sati kahlaana hai
Marne ae pe sati kahlaana hai
Itihaas ke pannon ko sadiyon
Itihaas ke pannon ko sadiyon
Yoon hi ye katha dohraana hai
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Dukh sah ke bhi mukh se kuchh na kahe
Man ko dheeraj ki shikshaa de
Seeta ke liye likha hai yahi

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
—————————————————
चुप चुप अपनी जान पे सह जा आ
दुनिया का अन्याय
कोई नहीं इस धरती पर
जो तेरा दर्द बटाय

सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
दुःख सह के भी मुख से कुछ न कहे
मन को धीरज की शिक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

गैरों के कडवे बोल सुने
अपनों का अत्याचार सहे
गैरों के ए कडवे बोल सुने
अपनों का अत्याचार सहे ए
जिस राम के संग बन बन भटके
उस राम की भी दुत्कार सहे
धरती में समाने से पहले
धरती में समाने से पहले
धरती की तरह हर भार सहे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

पुरुषों की बनायी दुनिया में
क्या इक नारी का मान बचे
पुरुषों की बनायी ई दुनिया में
क्या इक नारी का मान बचे
जिस ज़हर से राम का मन न बचा
उस ज़हर से क्या इंसान बचे
जो रीत युगों से जारी है
जो रीत युगों से जारी है
उस रीत से कैसे जान बचे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ आ आ

इस अंधी बहरी नगरी में
जब जब सीता को आना है
इस अंधी बहरी नगरी में
जब जब सीता को आना है
जीते जी कष्ट उठाना
मरने पे सती कहलाना है
मरने ए पे सती कहलाना है
इतिहास के पन्नो को सदियों
इतिहास के पन्नो को सदियों
यूँ ही ये कथा दोहराना है

सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
दुःख सह के भी मुख से कुछ न कहे
मन को धीरज की शिक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

It can be seen from the table of 1970 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 130 songs in 54 movies released in 1970. 86 of these songs are already covered in the blog.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 movies of 1970 are already covered in the blog. So 44 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 24 movies of 1970 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1970 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970).

“Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) was produced by Ananthaswami and directed by P Madhvan for Screen Gems, Madras. The movie had Hema Malini, Ajay Sahni, Om Prakash, Bobby, Jagdeep, Suresh, Maruti, David, Bindu, Shabnam, Tuntun, Birbal, Padmini, Manmohan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far. Lata Mangeshkar had sung two solo songs in it. One song sung by her has been represented in the blog so far.

Here is another Lata Mangeshkar song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on a child artist. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. My guess from the starcast is that she is Bobby.

chidiya chugaaye bachcho ko daane
kyun tune mujhko bisaara
taara koi bhi aaj gagan se toota nahin

kaahe mujhe tu duniya mein laayi
kaahe bani maa tu meri ee
kaahe bani maa tu meri
paalee naa jaaye, sambhaalee naa jaaye, tujhse jo santaan teri ee
tujhse jo santaan teri
khelegi kab tak aankh michauli
mann mera dhoondh ke haara
tara koi bhi aaj gagan se toota nahin
sahaara kisika aaj kisi se chhoota nahin
phir kyun maa toot gaya mamta ka naata pyaara aa
taara koi bhi aaj gagan se toota nahin

Music for this movie was composed by Anil Biswas. Editor’s note:-According to Girdharilal Vishwakarma (a well known record collector), A R Qureshy is the music director for this song.

Today 4th January’2021 is the twenty-seventh Remembrance Anniversary of ‘Pancham Da- The genius’ or Rahul Dev Burman ‘the prince of music’.

He was born on 27th June’1939 and he passed away on 4th January’1994 at the age of fifty-four only.

On his Remembrance Day today as a tribute to him I am presenting a song sung by him from the 1983 movie ‘Romance’. For today’s occasion I was looking for a sad song and that also from a ‘debutant movie’. This song is a nice composition and picturized on Kumar Gaurav who is seen roaming in the fields, riverside, hilly areas and some picturesque locations (I don’t know which are these places).

The song though hummable will be liked by those only (I think so) who have not found ‘any purpose of life’ or ‘is missing someone or something in his life’😊 and that is why being annoyed with life the song goes ‘ye zindagi kuchh bhi sahi, par ye mere kis kaam ki’.

Otherwise, it is a nice song to listen and sung well by R.D. Burman with his special musical touch and style.

‘Romance-1983’ was directed by Ramanand Sagar for his home productions ‘Sagar Art Enterprises, Bombay’. Ramanand Sagar was also the producer of this movie. It had Shammi Kapoor, Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, with Saeed Jaffrey, Helena Luke, Sushma Seth, Prema Narayan, and Tom Alter. They were supported by Viju Khote, Jugnu, Manmauji, Samrat Kapoor, Dr. Madan Kataria, Randhawa, Jawahar Bhan, Chandan, Yogee, Jitu Vyas, Moolchand.

This movie introduced Christopher, Lilli Put, Jillian. Raj Babbar, Ranjeeta and Ram Sethi make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story, Screenplay and dialogues for this movie were written by Mirza Brothers. Editing of this movie was done by Subhash Sehgal.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.10.1983.

This movie had five songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and R.D. Burman were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is by R.D. Burman himself as mentioned above.

let us now enjoy today’s song …

Alphabetically the first such movie is “26th January”(1956). This movie was produced and directed by Ramesh Sahgal for Sahgal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Ajeet, Johny Walker, Sapru, B M Vyas, Leela Mishra, Cuckkoo, Balraj Mehta Chamanpuri, Nishi (debutant) etc in it. The movie also had guest appearances by Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Jagdeesh Sethi, Randheer, Gyani and Patanjali.

The movie had seven songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog. The movie had five Lata solos. Both songs covered in the blog were Lata solo songs.

Here is the third Lata solo song from “26th January”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar is penned by Rajinder Krishan. C Ramchandra is the music director.

Incidentally, Rajinder Krishan by 1956 had penned 255 songs for Lata Mangeshkar and C Ramchandra had composed 237 Lata Mangeshkar songs. They were the top most lyricists and music director respectively as far as working with Lata Mangeshkar till that time was concerned.

Listening to this song tells me that we still have lots and lots of forgotten gems left unexplored. I listened to this song for the first time only just now.


Song-Aankh royi magar muskuraana padaa(26th January)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

baghbaan aaj khush hai chaman bech ke
apni ulfat ki khaatir watan bech ke
baghbaan aaj khush hai chaman bech ke
apni ulfat ki khaatir watan bech ke
sar pe iljaam ye bhi uthhaana pada
sar pe iljaam ye bhi uthhaana pada
dil ke tukde huye phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

aa aa aa aa aa
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
mera kya hai magar tu salaamat rahe
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
mera kya hai magar tu salaamat rahe
bas yahi soch kar zahar khaana pada
bas yahi soch kar zahar khaana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

Song-Hamein kya khabar thhi (Roopkumari)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-B D Mishra, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

hamein kya khabar thhi
ke tumse bichhad ke ae
akele hi qismat se ladna padega
tumhaari judaai
mitaayegi hamko o o
hamein zindagi bhar
tadapna padegaa
hamein kya khabar thi ee

huye door jaake
tumhi jab paraaye ae
to phir kaun ab meri bigdi banaaye
to phir kaun ab meri bigdi banaaye
ye zaalim zamaana
sitam ham pe dhaaye ae
to hans hans ke us ko bhi sehna padegaa
hamein kya khabar thhi ee

tumhein kho diyaa hamne
paane se pehle ae
khushi lut gayi ghar basaane se pehle
khushi lut gayi ghar basaane se pehle
ye aansoon miley muskuraane se pehle ae
hamein maut se pyaar karna padega
hamein kya khabar thhi
ke tumse bichhad ke ae
akele hi qismat se ladna padega
hamein kya khabar thhi ee ee ee

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part VII: Year 1953
———————————————————————————————————

Lata Mangeshkar, who had made her playback debut in 1940s (in Marathi movies) had to struggle for quite a few years to find a foothold in Hindi movies playback singing. By 1947, she had a grand total of 9 songs to show as a playback singer in HFM. Still, by the time the decade of 1940s ended, Lata Mangeshkar had a meteoric rise to the very top.

It is said that climbing to the top is easier, but remaining at the top is more difficult. We see that Lata Mangeshkar, after rising to the top in 1949, and statistically touching her highest peak in 1951 (223 songs) stayed close to her peak in subsequent years, without climbing down too low. The tally of 194 songs for movies of 1953 is only 29 songs lesser than her all time record of 223 songs for movies released in a calender year. So, one sees that Lata Mangeshkar was not a meteor, but a star.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 1953 :-

* Note:- The one solo song of “Firdaus”(1953), viz Phool chun le mere baalam was also there in “Naubahaar”(1952).

We see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 194 songs in 44 movies- excluding “Firdaus” song, which was actually a song of “Naubahaar”(1952).

Lata Mangeshkar added some new musical collaborators during this year. Music directors Dhaniram, R Sudarshanam-Dhaniram, R C Boral, Salil Chaudhary, Pt Shivramkrishna and Vasant-Prabhu composed songs for Lata Mangeshkar for the first time in this year 1953. Madhup Sharma, Madhukar Rajasthani, Manmohan Sabir and Saba Afghani penned songs for Lata Mangeshkar for the first time in this year.

Shankar Jaikishan and C Ramchandra were the major music directors for her this year. Shankar Jaikishan composed 44 songs in her voice in 7 movies. C Ramchandra composed 40 songs in her voice in 6 movies. So these two music directors composed 50% of the songs that Lata Mangeshkar sang in movies of 1953 !

Rajinder Krishan penned 47 songs in 8 movies whereas Shailendra penned 32 songs for her in 10 movies. So these two lyricists penned almost 45 % of all songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar this year. It shows that Lata Mangeshkar was being backed by the top music directors and top lyricists of the time.

Out of 44 movies of 1953 where Lata Mangeshkar lent her vice, all her songs in majority of these movies are already covered. Some Lata Mangeshkar songs are yet to be covered in 13 movies.

By the end of 1953, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 953 songs in HFM. As many as 490 of these songs (53%) were under the batons of five music directors , namely C Ramchandra (158 songs), Husnlal Bhagatram (98 songs), Shankar Jaikishan (98 songs),Anil Biswas (88 songs) and Roshan (48 songs). As for lyricists 383 out of 953 songs (40%) were penned by just five lyricists, namely Rajinder Krishan (136 songs), Shailendra (74 songs), Hasrat Jaipuri (62 songs), Shakeel Badayuni (58) and P L Santoshi (53 songs). By 1953, Lata Mangeshkar had worked with 59 Music directors and 94 lyricists.

“Aansoo”(1953) is alphabetically the first movie of 1953 that still has some leftover Lata songs not yet discussed in the blog. “Aansoo”(1953) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Famous Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kamini Kaushal, Shekhar, Pran, Nawab, Amirbai Karnataki, Indu Pal, Chaman Puri, Rajkumari, Kabil Amritsari, Parvati Devi, C Nazeer, Indira Bansal, Mumtaz mati, Roopmati, Suhel Chaudhary, Satyarani, Aruna Mehta, Shrimati Homi Master, Ghulam Hussain, Madan Singh, Madan Mohan, Sudesh Kumar, Baby Kumkum, Baby Kavita, Baby Suman, Binu Brar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. There were five Lata Mangeshkar songs in it. Three were solos and two were duets (with Rafi). Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final Lata song from “Aansoo”(1953). This song is a solo song. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Kamini Kaushal was the leading lady, one can guess that the song was lipsynced by her on screen. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

After this song, only one song is left from “”Aansoo”(1953). Details of this song “Chha rahi kaali ghata jiyara mora lahraaye hai” is not gven in HFGK, HFGK makes a guess that this song was probably sung by Shamshad Begam. These is a famous song with this mukhda by Begam Akhtar. I wonder if this sing was sung by Begam Akhtar. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.


Song-Judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedaar se pahle (Aansoo)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

tukde uthha ke dil ke
ham door jaa rahe hain
tumse kiye thhe waade ae
wo yaad aa rahe ae ae hain aen aen

judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
to marne ki duaa karte tumhaare pyaar se pahle
judaai ki

agar ye jaante
tumse juda ik roz hona hai
agar maaloom hota pyaar ka anjaam rona hai
hazaaron baar ham tum sochte ikraar se pahle
hazaaron baar ham tum sochte ikraar se pahle
judaai ki

arre duniya ke maalik
kya aa mila
bekas ko thhukra ke ae
bekas ko o thhukra ke
khushi ki daur ghadiyaan tumse maangi haath phailaa ke
mere aansu to aakar dekhta inkaar se pahle
mere aansu to aakar dekhta inkaar se pahle
judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
judaai ki
