Blog Day : 3841 Post No. : 14853

Today (23 january 2019) is the birth anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose, one of the most admired freedom fighters of India.

One year ago, I had written a detailed writeup about his escape from his house arrest. That writeup was accompanied by the song Jodi tor daak..tanha raahi apni raah chalta jaayegaa.

Writing that article was quite a emotional roller coaster ride for me, because I tried to imagine all the meticulous planning of that escape, including the successful execution of the plan.

In the process, I watched snippets of the movie “Bose The forgotten Hero”(2004) which contains this song.

Lyrics of that song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. One year later, he sent the lyrics of another song from the movie to be posted on this occasion with a request of a writeup by me because I have seen the movie. No, I have not seen the movie. I have only seen parts of it, because I cannot bear to see the full movie even though I know that it is a movie and the scenes depicted in the movie happened over seven decades ago.

So, my writeup is not based on my watching the movie, rather it is based on my impressions on Subhash Chandra Bose.

It seems to me, and many people would agree that his contributions towards the independence movement has been vastly underrated and attempts have been made to consign his contribution to just a few lines. We have been fed the history that non violent agitations led by Mahatma Gandhi won us our freedom.

When I try to think about it now, it does not seem to add up. If non violent agitations gave us freedom, then what explains the violence that took place during the partition ? Why the proponents of these non violence agitations agreed to the participation of Indian armymen in the second world war and also the first world war before that ? If people in India really followed non violence, then what explains the Indo Pak wars that took place and the terror attacks that are taking place from across the border.

When one tries to look at the reasons for the independence of India, it appears that the reason why India got independence was not Non violent agitations but it was mainly due to the precarious economical situation of Britain.

Britain which used to be the strongest economy in the world till the 18th century found itself being overtaken by USA and Germany by the turn of 19th century. USA was able to cash in because it pioneered new indstries, viz automobiles, motorbikes and aircrafts and became the leading manufacturer of these new technology items. The first world war and later the second world war devastated British economy. After the second world war ended Britain had lost much of its absolute wealth. Its trade reduced to just one third vis a vis its pre war trade. Dollar had become the preferred currency and Britain had shortage of dollars to pay off its wartime debts. As an emergency measure, Britain began to hive off its overseas assets. USA extracted a heavy price from Britain for getting involved in the second world war. Britain had to take a loan of $ 4.33 billions from USA. Winter of 1946-47 broke the back of British economy, with cutrailed economic production and shortage of coal. The situation reeached its worst in August 1947 !

Is it a coincidence that India got its independence in August 1947 ! With the benefit of all the information contained in the above para, it appears that Britain were in no position to be able to hold on to India any longer. Even if there were no agitations, violent or otherwise, Britain woould have left India sooner or later.

It appears to me that holding on to the Indian empire was becoming more and more prohibitively expensive for Britain. It would seem to me that “Non violent” agitations were not the only thing Britain had to worry. They also had to worry about the real possibility of disenchantment in the natives who manned Indian Army. The contribution of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauz, which actually participated in world war II cannot be underestimated.

The end of the war saw a large number of the troops of Azad Hind Fauz repatriated to India where some faced trials for treason at Red Fort in Delhi. Instead of acting as a deterrent,as hoped by the British, these trials became a galvanising point in the Indian Independence movement. The Bombay mutiny in the Royal Indian Navy and other mutinies in 1946 are thought to have been caused by the nationalist feelings that were caused by the INA trials. Many historians believe that these events played a crucial role in hastening the end of British rule in India.

After independence, Gandhian freedom fighters were given the status of freedom fighters but Azad Hind Fauz members were denied this privilege. Nevertheless, the Azad Hind Fauz remains a popular and passionate topic in Indian culture and politics.

India became politically independent on 15 august 1947. It wold take decades and decades of slog with lots of troubles enroute, before Indian fortunes would begin to look up and they would shrug off the tag of a begging bowl nation and subsequently a nation considered the fastest growing major nation in the world. I would cover this vast topic in another writeup on the occasion of Republic day, which falls three day later.

For now, let us listen to this song of hope. The hopes of securing independence. The hopes of living happily ever after. The song is a chorus song. Jawed Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Song-Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge (Bose-The Forgotten Hero)(2004) Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Ab fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai

Subhash kaa ye kehna kehna hai
Chalo Dilli chal ke rehna hai
Ham Dilii Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge

Ham goli kha ke jhoomenge
Maut ko badhh ke chumenge
Matawaale ban aazaadi ke
Hum dariya jungle ghoomenge
Goli kha ke jhoomenge
Maut ko badhh ke choomenge
Matawaale ban aazaadi ke
Ham dariya jungle ghumenge
Subhash hamaara haawi hai
Ghulaami ke taalon ki chaabhi hai
Phir kaisa khatraa baaki hai
Khuda bhi hamaara saathi hai
Ham Dilii Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge

Fauji ban ke jaayenge
Aur Dilii ko sajaayenge
Fauji ban ke jaayenge
Dilii ko sajaayenge
Zaalim firangi qaum kaa
Ham naam-o-nishaan mitaayenge
Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Ab fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Subhash kaa ye kehna kehna hai
Chalo Dilli chal ke rehna hai

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है
अब फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है

सुभाष का ये कहना कहना है
चलो दिल्ली चल के रहना है
हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे

हम गोली खा के झूमेंगे
मौत को बढ़ के चूमेंगे
मतवाले बन आज़ादी के
हम दरिया जंगल घूमेंगे
गोली खा के झूमेंगे
मौत को बढ़ के चूमेंगे
मतवाले बन आज़ादी के
हम दरिया जंगल घूमेंगे
सुभाष हमारा हावी है
ग़ुलामी के तालों कि चाभी है
फिर कैसा ख़तरा बाकी है
खुदा भी हमारा साथी है

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे

फौजी बन के जायेंगे
और दिल्ली को सजायेंगे
फौजी बन के जायेंगे
दिल्ली को सजायेंगे
ज़ालिम फिरंगी कौम का
हम नाम-ओ-निशान मिटायेंगे

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है
अब फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है

सुभाष का ये कहना कहना है
चलो दिल्ली चल के रहना है

na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
tera wajood hai sirf dastaan ke liye
 

palat ke su-e-chaman dekhne se kya hogaa
wo shaakh hi na rahi jo thhi aashiyaan ke liye

garaz paarast jahaan mein wafaa talaash na kar
ye shai bani hai kisi dusre jahan ke liye

Thus wrote Sahir Ludhianvi for the film ‘Daastaan’ (1972). Here he takes a cue from Allama Iqbal who said ….

na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
jahaan hai tere liye tu nahin jahaan ke liye

Ever the cynic….

Whereas Iqbal was always motivational, Sahir had an inverted view of things.  Maybe this solitude and despair was because of ‘Pyasaa” or vice versa.  Take the instance of “Wo Sub’ha Kabhi To Aayegi“ in the film ‘Phir Subah hogi’ (1958). These verses are said to have inspired his contemporary Jaan Nisaar Akhtar to write the song “Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein” in ‘Susheela’ (1966), with the lines,

gham ki andheri raat mein dil ko na beqaraar kar
sub’ha zaroor aayegi, sub’ha ka intezaar kar

Just last week, I was thinking about the Hindi poem I had written in 2016. It was published in my office magazine. This poem has some heavy references of Sahir’s songs.  And that I should write a post about Sahir Ludhianvi on his anniversary. But for some reason I had the impression that his death anniversary falls in June or July. I thought I will look up on the blog for the birth anniversary and if it is anytime soon I will write a post.

As it happened my office computer was out of order last week and it returned to work only on Friday and there is no lap-top currently in my use at home, I missed the opportunity to write this article on time. It was Raja ji’s article which alerted me to the fact of Sahir Ludhianvi’s death anniversary on 25th October.

Before I get to the song in hand, let’s take a look at my poem.  This is rather long and I am told it lacks something.  But this is the finished product:

कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ?

सुना मैंने के कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती
सोचा के अपनी सी कुछ कोशिश मैं भी कर देखूं
कोशिश एक जद्द-ओ-जहद हालात को बेहतर करने की
कोशिश जो हर एक करे खुद को बेहतर इंसान बनाने की
कोशिश वो जो अपने परिवार की, सम्मान की रक्षा की
कोशिश के ऐसे जीऐं अपना स्तर उँचा हो नजर में खुदा की
कोशिश वो जो हो इज्जत से जीने की और इज्जतदार मरने की
फिर कहें
कि कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

फिर कहा किसी ने कि मरने की बात क्यू करें
मौत में कैसी इज्जत कैसी आबरू
क्यूं जब मर कर बाबुल से नजरें मिलाना है
तो जीना और मरना ऐसे रहे के अपना सर उँचा हो
ये ना हो कि बहू और बेटी को बाजार में खड़ा करे
और कहें कि
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

शायद ये साहिर नें 1957 में लिखा हो के
“संसार की हरेक बेशर्मी
गुरबत की गोद में पलती है”
सोचने लगी के क्या ये आज भी सच है
कोई सोचे या नहीं, बात काबिले गौर है
क्यूं की
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

और कहा साहिर ने के
“अवतार पयंबर जनती है,
फिर भी शैतान की बेटी है”
मुझे लगा जैसे आज मैं ही बैठी हूं
किसी टेलीविजन के ‘टॉक शो’ पर
और दुहार लगाई हूं “फ्रीडम ऑफ एक्सप्रेशन” की
वहां तक,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

आज का दौर हम सब ‘अय्याश’!
माडर्न और सैवी होने का हमें फक्र है

‘अय्याश’ इतना ‘ओल्ड फैशन्ड’ शब्द है,
की ‘हम अय्याश’ सुन कर सब चौंके,
अय्याश वो है जो ऐश में डूबा हुआ है
जिंदगी के मजे लेने में, जानों और पहचानों
“औरत ने जन्म दिया मर्दों को, मर्दों ने उसे बाजार दिया”
और तो
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

मेरी बहनों और बेटियों, अपनी इज्जत अपने हाथ
जब खुद अपनी इज्जत करना सीख जाओ
के औरों को तुम्हारी इस्मत पर नजर डालते शरम आये
संघर्ष का सब से बड़ा मैदान यहीं है के
कोख में अपनी बेटी का कत्ल ना होने देना हरगिज
और ना खुद को शैतान की बेटी बनने दो,
बात बहुत बड़ी मेरी तुच्छ कलम कह गयी
सच है,
कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

ओ बाबुल प्यारे, मुझे नाज से लाड से पालने वाले
कल तू मुझे संजोता, संवारता था और ससुराल भेजता
कल मैं तेरी आँखों की चमक और पगड़ी का फक्र थी
आज ये हाल है, कि हम अपनी बेटियों को परदेसी कर देते हैं
ताकि वो अपनी पोजिशन बनाये दुनियाँ में
जाओ,
के कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती ।

नतीजा ये की आज दुनियाँ की कोई गैर-जरूरी चीज नहीं
जिसे बेचने में मेरा इस्तेमाल नहीं होता
आज मैं हर अखबार में हर फिल्मी पोस्टर में
हर पल हर वक्त बेची और खरीदी जाती हूं
मजे की बात तो ये हुई के मुझे एहसास तक नहीं
की मैं हर लम्हे कितनी “निर्भय” हो गई इस बाजार में
पता है, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती
अगर ये मेरी और तुम्हारी हार नहीं है
तो कोई मुझे बताये कि ये क्या है?

ये कैसी कोशिश है
कि हर तरह से मेरी हार होती है ।

Sounds rather like a long story.  But the story is original and sort of a parody of the original ‘Koshish Karnewaalon Ki Kabhi Haar Nahin Hoti” by Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Now moving to the song in hand, from the film ‘Begum Jaan’ (2017).  This is an adaptation of the original song in “Phir Subah Hogi”(1958) written by Sahir Ludhianvi.   Only a word in the mukhda is changed and the whole song in re-rendered by Arjit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal. Credit for the lyrics and composition is given to Sahir Ludhianvi and Khayyam.
(As per myswar.com  http://myswar.co/song_details/begum-jaan-2017-woh-subah-hami-se-aayegi-7 )

A big fan of Arjit Singh I am not and this particular rendition has not endeared him to me.  I believe singing has to be of words and uttering words in a loose manner somehow dilutes the impact.  I don’t know if the singing here was required this way due to the situation, as I haven’t seen the movie.   The background music is a haunting fall back on “Tadap Tadap Ke Iss Dil Se” (‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, 1999). While listening to this and the original by Khaiyyam I was reminded of “Dekh Lo Aaj Hum Ko Ji Bhar Ke” (‘Baazaar’, 1982) as well as “Najariyaa Ki Maari” (“Pakeezah”, 1971).

This is a tribute to the poet of such inimitable songs such as:

Tum Mujhe Bhool Bhi Jaao To Ye Haqq Hai Tum Ko

Tum Agar Mujh Ko Na Chaaho To Koi Baat Nahi

Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se Ajnabi Ban Jaayen Ham Donon

Jaane Wo Kaise Log Thhe Jin Ke Pyar Ko Pyar Mila

Mann Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dhare

And many more such songs.

Lyrics

in kaali sadiyon ke sar se
jab raat ka aanchal dhhalkega aa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaaaaaa
jab dukh ke baadal pighlenge
jab sukh ka saagar chhalkega aa
aaa aaa aaa aaa
jab ambar jhhoom ke naachega
jab dharti naghme gaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

jis sub’ha ki khaatir jug jug se
ham sab mar mar ke jeete hain

aaa aaa aaa
jis subah ki amrit ki dhun mein
ham zehar ke pyaale peete hain
in bhooki pyaasi roohon per
ek din to karam farmaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

maana ke abhi tere mere
armaanon ki qeemat kuch bhi nahin

hmm hmm hmm
mitti ka bhi hai kuchh mol magar
insaanon ki qeemat kuchh bhi nahin
aa aa aa
insaanon ki izzat jab jhoothhe
sikko mein na toli jaayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi
woh sub’ha hameen se aayegi

Hindi Script Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

इन काली सदियों के सर से
जब रात का आँचल ढलकेगा
आssss आssss आssssssss 
जब दुख के बादल पिघलेंगे
जब सुख का सागर छलकेगा
आss आss आss आss
जब अम्बर झूम के नाचेगा
जब धरती नग़मे गाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी

जिस सुबहा की खातिर जुग जुग से
हम सब मर मर के जीते हैं
आss आss आss
जिस सुबहा के अमृत की धुन में
हम ज़हर के प्याले पीते हैं
इन भूखी प्यासी रूहों पर
एक दिन तो करम फरमाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी

माना के अभी तेरे मेरे
अरमानों की क़ीमत कुछ भी नहीं
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम
मिट्टी का भी है कुछ मोल मगर
इन्सानों की क़ीमत कुछ भी नहीं
आs आs आs
इन्सानों की इज्ज़त जब झूठे
सिक्कों में ना तोली जाएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
वो सुबहा हमीं से आएगी
