Today’s song is from the film Adhikar-1938. Made at Calcutta by New Theatres, the film was directed by P C Barua, who also acted in the film’s both versions-Bangla and Hindi. The film title was the same in both. While the Bangla version released on 12-1-1939, the Hindi version was delayed and released on 21-10-1939.

In the early era of film making, right from the Silent films, Bombay was the most active and important film centre. Two local communities in Bombay were predominantly engaged in filmmaking. One was the Gujarati – who were shrewd businessmen who had an eye on the profits. The other local community was Marathis. Marathi people were poor in finance, bereft of business acumen, they were very good performers. So, they were inclined to acting, direction,production, Art direction, story writing, Music directions, singing etc. Everything and anything that did not involve finance or business !

This continued till the Talkie arrived. Then one more player joined in and that was Bengali community from Calcutta. They recognised the need to showcase their films on the All India platform to make their film industry viable. So, making Hindi films for the All India market started. The pioneers in Cinema in Bengal – the Madons had their own network of Cinema Theatres and after a while New Theatres too established their film distribution network in North, West and South India.

Bengalis were hardworking and intelligent in those days and so understood the mechanics of successful films.First thing that they did was to use established novels and stories from the Bengali literature to make films. The Madons had bought the rights of all the novels of Bankimchandra Chatterjee and the New Theatres followed suit by using Sharadchandra Chatterji and the rest of the famous writers. This made their film’s base strong. Secondly, they introduced their favourite and revered Rabindra Sangeet in film songs. To the Bombay audience, who was bored with classical and stage drama music, this was a welcome change. Thus, in the early years of Talkie films i.e. 1933 to almost 1945, Calocutta contributed substantially in making films popular and profitable.

Automatically, many Bangla artistes tried their hand at acting and Music making in Hindi films. Have you ever heard of these names ?
Radhacharan Bhattacharya, Motibabu, N R Bhattacharya, Shoolpani Mukherjee, S P Mukherjee, V V Ganguly, Niren Lahiri, Shivrani Ghosh, A C Biswas, Bhishmadev Chatterjee etc etc .

I am sure none of these names ring any bell in your mind. Simply because they are not famous Bangla names. Let me tell you that these are some names of Bangla Music Directors, who gave music to Hindi films in the 30s and 40s. The contribution of Bangla artistes in various fields of film making, especially Music composition and singing has been sizable. Over a period, with the emergence and strengthening of regional centres, the contribution started reducing and in a period of 20 years,it trickled to the minimum.

In the decade of the 30s Music Directors like R C Boral, Pankaj Mullik, K C Dey, Timir Baran, Anupam Ghatak and Anil Biswas contributed heavily by building the base of Hindi Film music. In the 40s it was Pannalal Ghosh, Kamal Dasgupta, Pt.Ravishankar and Ram Ganguly. In the 50s it was S D Burman, Salil Chaudhary and Hemant Kumar. In the 60s it was Robin Banerjee, in the 70s it was only R D Burman and in the 80s it was only Bappi Lahiri.

Similarly, among Singers too the initial high number came down over a period. To start with it was K C Dey, Anil Biswas, Ashok Kumar, Asit baran, Harimati Dua, Kalyani Das(real name Zareena), Kanan Devi, Pahadi Sanyal, Pankaj Mullik, Parul Ghosh, Maya Banerjee etc. Then came Ashima Banerjee, Geeta Dutt, Hemant Kumar, Jagmohan, Juthika Roy, Manna Dey, Ranu Mukherjee, Sandhya Mukherjee, Sailesh Mukherjee, Shankar Dasgupta, Subir Sen, Utpala Sen etc. In the 70 to 85 period it was mainly Kishore Kumar, Amit kumar, Aarti Mukherjee, Bappi Lahiri, Runa Laila, Kalyani Mitra, Pankaj Mitra, Sapan Chakravarty etc. After 85 the number was reduced to Shreya Ghoshal, Abhijeet, Babul Supriyo etc.
(All names are only indicative and not exhaustive).

Amongst the singers from Bengal, possibly Pahadi Sanyal acted in the maximum number of Hindi films-36. He sang 70 songs in 20 Hindi films, the rest were for only acting. His songs with Uma Shashi, Kanan Devi, Molina Devi and Sehgal were famous. Luku Sanyal-the English news Reader of early Doordarshan News was his daughter. Today’s film Adhikar-38 had music by Timir baran bhattacharya. The cast of the film was P C Barua, Jamuna, Menaka, Pahadi Sanyal, Pankaj Mullik, Jagdish Sethi, Bikram Kapooretc.etc. From the cast, Menaka Devi was a member of Same Name Confusion, as there was another Menaka-actress and singer- from Bombay in the same time period.

Menaka Devi (Calcutta Wali) was born in Varanasi on 23-1-1921. Her mother was a resident of the holy city although her father was from Bengal. She studied upto Matriculation. She could speak fluent English and Hindi, but not much of Bangla, having been raised in Varanasi. Her interest in music and dance took her to Bombay where she starred in a couple of films like Prince Thaksen (1929), Uttara Abhimanyu, Ishwar Ki Maut and others as a child artiste. When the Talkie started she acted and sang in Bhedi Rajkumar-34, Pyara Dushman-35 and Krishna Shishtai – 35.

Reportedly, she met the legendary film director Debaki Bose of Bengal during a train journey and he was so impressed by her that he decided to cast her in the lead role of his next venture in the Hindi version of the bilingual Sonar Sansar (1936 in Bangla and Sunehra Sansar-36 in Hindi) and thus began the illustrious career of Menaka Devi.

Her devotion to work was such that she learnt Bengali, her mother tongue although she was anything but fluent in it having spent all her life till then outside Bengal, so that she could play the same role (that of Alka) in the Bengali version also. Dhiraj Bhattacharya was her first hero on the screen. P.C.Barua, who was on the lookout for a young and fresh face to play Jharna in his forthcoming production Mukti (1937) selected her for both the versions ( Bangla and Hindi) and a flow started whereby she starred in films like Adhikar (1939), Abhigyan (1938), Bardidi (1939 in Bangla and Badi Didi in Hindi), Rajat Jayanti (1940) and others.

She decided to try her luck in Bombay around 1944 and starred in a few films there and definitely made her presence felt although playing the second lead most of the time. Kishore Sahu procured her services for Hamari Duniya (1952). She was married to Pannalal Shrivastav and had 1 daughter ( Jaya Ganguly). She turned producer also and this proved her undoing. Both her films as producer, Apna na Huye Apne (No information of this film,probably incomplete) and Jeene Do-48, both starring herself with prominent Bombay stars flopped.

She returned to Calcutta a broken woman and found to her dismay that roles were not coming to her. She joined the MG Enterprise, a drama group of Molina Devi and performed on the stage to continue to live as an actress. She even arranged magic shows along with husband Pannalal Srivastava while small roles came pouring in films like Ekti Raat (1956) and others. The feature that strikes even today while seeing her performance is the spontaneous nature of her acting. Why good roles eluded her is a mystery. She was last seen on the screen in Bhombal Sardar (1983). In all, she acted in 60 films-Bangla and Hindi together. She was in 19 Hindi films and sang 8 songs in 4 Hindi films.

Her end came on 22-1- 2004 after a prolonged fight not only against poor health but also poverty. Her death was reported only in one Bengali daily although news of her death received good coverage on television.

Here is a small note on Jagdish Sethi.

Jagdish Sethi was born on 15-1-1903 at Pind Dandan Khan (Campbellpore) in Punjab.

After matriculation in 1920, he graduated from Lahore. He was known as a fighter in college due to his dominating nature. He joined the film line as assitant cameraman in Punjab film company in 1928.

He went to Calcutta to work as an extra in New Theatres, came back to Bombay and worked in Alam Ara-31. He went back to New Theatres in 1933 and worked in films like President,Anath Ashram,Mukti, jawani ki reet,Ghar ki laaj etc.

He worked in about 85 films in his career. In Bombay he was famous as a person with changing moods. He did not have many friends. He worked in films made by Imperial, Amar Movietone, Maiden Films, New Theatres, Laxmi Productions (belonging to L V Prasad), Janak Productions, Filmistan etc etc. He started his own J.S.Productions and produced and directed films like Do Dil-47, Raat ki Rani-49, Jaggu-52 and Pensioner-54.

He amassed huge wealth. He was fond of Racing, Cards and Tennis. He was also a writer and published a book “Hichkiyan”-short stories on Film world.

He died on 12-6-1969.

Today’s song is sung by Pankaj Mullik, Pahadi Sanyal and Pratap Mukherji. The tune of today’s song is similar to one used in film Forty Days-1959 song of Asha-Manna Dey “Naseeb hoga mera meherbaan kabhi na kabhi”….MD-Bipin-Babul. Enjoy….

“Girls’ School”(1949) was written and directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Lokmanya Productions, Bombay. Lokmanya Productions was a joint venture of Kavi Pradeep and Amiya Chakraborty. This movie had Geeta Bali, Sohan, Mangala, Krishna, Sajjan, Ram Singh, Shashikala, Vimala Vashisht etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Anil Biswas was signed up as the music director. But he walked out of the movie when he found Kavi Pradeep the co producer interfering in his work. So C Ramchandra composed music for the remaining songs.

Six songs from “Girls’ School”(1949) have been covered in the past. The movie incidentally had little to do with the education of girls despite its fancy title. And the movie duly flopped. So the songs of the movie are better enjoyed as standalone songs, rather than as part of this movie.

Today (1 may 2021) is the birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 may 1919-24 october 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Girls’ School”(1949). The song is sung by Manna Dey and Shamshad Begam. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Anil Biswas is mentioned as the music director of this song, but I suspect that this song could have been composed by C Ramchandra, seeing that C Ramchandra used the voices of Shamshad Begam and Lalita Deulkar as female voices in other songs composed for the movie, mainly because Lata Mangeshkar, the first choice for female playback singer, who had recorded three songs with Anil Biswas for the movie, refused to record more songs, when she came to know about the unceremonious ouster of Anil Biswas from this movie. However, I have gone with Anil Biswas as the music director here as mentioned in HFGK.

Today is also International labour day. The lyrics of the song sound appropriate for tat occasion as well.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#6)
————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #Year-1983 – The year of ‘Himmatwaalaa’
——————————————————————–

We are back for yet another ‘warmer’ summer. Temperatures are already soaring day by day. e are in the midst of the second summer in the ‘pandemic age’. If we compare it to last year’s summer, this year ‘surge of the pandemic’ is decidedly more serious than what it was in the previous year.

For students also, an unusual summer in terms of classes and exams. And that reminds me of the ‘summers’ in my childhood. We would wait for the exams to get over, which would be conducted in March-April. From May it would be vacations till June 7th (or the first or second Monday of June, hope I am correct) when the schools reopened for the next educational year.

The normal planning for the vacations would be to visit grandparents, playing cricket, reading story books, magazines, comics, cricket-samrat’, ‘listening to music on SLBC, ‘Vividh Bharati’ and ‘listening to BBC Khel Samachar etc. on radio’. Watching movies in the nearby city (Akola) would be one more option. Also common in those days were ‘touring talkies’ which would be camping in the season. After a full day of warm summer, one ould enjoy movies in the evening and night shows in these touring talkies which generally would be in open fields.

That was the planning for ‘summer vacations’ but before that we had to go through exams.

When I talk of ‘summer nostalgia’, I cannot forget the summer of the most important year in my life, and that is the year ‘1983’ (educational year 1982-83) when I was in 10th standard and I appeared for the board exams in Mar-1983 (or may be Mar-April-1983).

A crucial year of studies in one’s life according to the general ‘perception’ in our society (in those years, or it is the same even today?) 😊.
However, we were not having those many comforts we have now. There was no TV, no mobile, no internet, no fridge (at our home).
But there was ‘Radio’ or ‘Transistor’ and there were books and newspapers. Other than cricket it was ‘carrom’ ‘badminton’ and other outdoor games etc.

However, my Uncle staying at Koradi (Nagpur) had purchased a ‘Dynora’ ‘b/w’ TV. And India and Pakistan were having a test series. So, somehow, I convinced my parents to allow me to go for few days and watch the matches on TV and come back.

Imagine, on one side all my friends, classmates were tense, and I had bunked my ‘tuitions’ to watch India-Pakistan matches on TV. My tuition teacher asked my parents to please call me back and when I returned from Nagpur, he humbly requested me ‘aata he cricket vagaire soda, ani abhyasaat laksh ghaala’ (forget the cricket now and concentrate on the studies now) And why not he was not even charging me the tuition fees like my other friends.

So, I concentrated on on studies, but still not giving a serious thought to Teacher and Parent’s instructions I continued to at least play half an hour every day and even on examination days, citing the reason of ‘relieving exam stress’ to my parents.

After examinations it was again ‘cricket’ and ‘movies’ too … And when I talk of summer’1983 I cannot forget the movies I watched during the vacation after appearing for the board exams which was like normal exams for me.

Cassette players had already made entry into our colony and a few people possessed them . So, there were songs and movies. Songs of ‘Nikaah’, ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Himmatwaala’ etc. could be heard anywhere either on radio or ‘tape recorders.’

As a cricket fan, this summer turned out to be the most memorable and unforgettable as Kapil’s Devils clinched the ‘first world cup title’ for India in June’1983.

Given my age that time I was more interested in cricket, movies, books, and study to pass the exams 😊.

Now, when I check the important happenings in our country in that year – 1983 – google had the following results.

● Waiting telephone connections.
● Silk Smitha.
● Khushwant Singh.
● Kapil Dev brings World Cup to India.
● Nellie Massacre tragedy.
● Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

Challenges were still there, and the next year 1984 was a crucial year as we are all aware we lost our Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The previous years to 1983 i.e., 1981 & 1982 saw floods playing havoc in Rajasthan, and Saurashtra & Orissa, respectively.

All was lost for the peoples residing there, but life had to find its way, so the people of this country do, from time immemorial – facing challenges – fighting them – and winning over them and re-creating more than what has been lost. ‘To fight back with more strength after all is lost’ is in the blood of the people of this land.

Ah! but one cannot bring back the lives that are lost.

Today, again, we are facing challenges and our ‘warriors’ from different fields of the society are fighting with the pandemic and helping people going far out of the way of what they could be.

The stories of highest sacrifices done by individuals and group of peoples never cease to hit the media and life goes on …

Here is a song, that could better explain the ‘challenge’, we as ‘human’ must overcome and save our people, help them, and ‘rebuild’ them.

‘The dignity’ of ‘humanity’ should be upheld and protected.

If 1983 was the year of filmy ‘Himmatwaalaa’ the year ‘2020’ and ‘2021’ have been the years of the ‘real heroes’, who have shown exemplary courage during the ‘lock-down-1’ and first phase of the pandemic, and during the second and worst phase of the pandemic.

Whether they are frontline health workers, doctors, social workers, non-governmental organizations providing food and shelters to many, migrant labors, small entrepreneurs, or start-ups … all of them have suffered a lot themselves. and have still helped many to stand in this hour of calamity.

The ‘pandemic challenge’ is not over yet and still a lot needs to be done by all collectively…

Today’s song is the song which I like most from this movie ‘Himmatwaalaa-1983’ and Bappi Lahiri has given this different composition among the other ‘dance-romance-dream’ songs in this movie. Same thing applies to the lyricist Indeever who penned this song.

In the movie the song happens when nearby villages have been washed off due to flood and nature’s fury (in the movie it is shown taking place in Gujarat).
The hero of the movie Jeetendra calls a meeting of the youths and motivates them to join him in collectively helping those who have lost their all.
However, the elders in the town did not agree with Jeetendra and try to prevent their kin from joining him.

This song takes place here when Jeetendra give the clarion call to all singing this song. As it happens the people (Arun Govil and many others) respond to his call and joined him in this mission.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 128 # A Tribute to Anand Bakshi#
——————————————-—————————

Today 30th March 2021 (21.07.1930 – 30.03.2002) is the nineteenth Remembrance anniversary of Lyricist Anand Bakshi. As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1976’ movie ‘Mahaachor’ On this occasion .

‘Mahaachor-1976’ was directed by Narinder Bedi for ‘Dachi Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. It had Rajesh Khanna, Neetu Singh, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Manorama, Anwar Hussain, Krishna Dhawan, Manmohan, Rajan Haksar, Aruna Irani, Sonia Sahni (Special appearance), Master Lollipop, Viju Khote, Rajpal, Narbada Shankar, Jagdish Raj, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Pratima Devi, Rajnath, Moolchand, Ratnamala, Nishan Singh, Chandu, Dhanna, Mishrilal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1976.

This movie had six songs (as listed below) written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ae..ho..aa …mera naam yaaron mahaachor hai Kishore Kumar
02 Hindu hoon main naa musalmaan hoon Kishore Kumar
03 Sun Banto baat meri… naiyyo katni raat meri Anand Bakshi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Main tumse pyaar karti hoon Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 29.12.2011
05 Tu kya mujhe barbaad karega … Lata Mangeshkar
06 Meethhi meethhi ankhiyon se man bhar de Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 18.07.2016

It can be seen that only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The second song appeared after a gap of a little more than four years and six months after the first song. Incidentally today’s song, the third one from this movie, is appearing after a gap of more than four years and eight months (almost about five years). The earlier two songs were posted on anniversaries of Rajesh Khanna. Today’s song is being posted on the ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of Anand Bakshi – the lyricist for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip-synced by Rajesh Khanna. From the picturization of this song it seems to be lip synced after a communal clash between followers of to religions, where this song serves to preach the values of communal harmony

As mentioned above lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

In the year ‘1976’ Anand Bakshi wrote lyrics for the following movies;

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aap Beetee Laxmikant-Pyarelal
02 Baalika Badhu R.D. Burman
03 Baarood S.D. Burman
04 Bairaag Kalyanji-Anandji
05 Bhanwar R.D. Burman
06 Bullet R.D. Burman
07 Charas Laxmikant-Pyarelal

15 Mahaachor R.D. Burman
16 Mehboobaa R.D. Burman
17 Nehale Pe Dehalaa R.D. Burman
18 Tyaag S.D. Burman

The songs from ‘Kabhie-Kabhie’, ‘Dharam Karam’ and ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ stood in the first three ranks respectively in the annual list of ‘Binaca-Geetmala’ that year in 1976. As many as eleven songs written by Anand Bakshi figured in this list of ‘1976’. These included songs from ‘Sholay-1975’, ‘Mehboobaa-1976’, ‘Jaaneman-1976’, ‘Warrant-1975’, and ‘Charas-1976’ as well.

let us now listen to today’s song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. R.D. Burman is the music director and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.

हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता हैं मैं इंसान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

जिसको पता हो बोले
मजहब का राज़ खोले
मैं जब पैदा हुआ था
लिखा हुआ नहीं था
चेहरे पे नाम मेरा
सबको सलाम मेरा
लोगों ने जो भी पुकारा
मैं बन गया बेचारा
बात समझ नहीं आती
किसका बनूं मैं साथी
तौबा है
तौबा है
मैं कितना नादान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

लिखा पढ़ा नहीं मैं
रखता हूँ इस पे यकीन मैं
मैंने कहीं सूना है
किसी शायर ने कहा है
मजहब नहीं सिखाता
आपस में बैर रखना
कहने का ये मतलब है
ये कौनसा मजहब है
जिसने तुम्हे भड़काया
आपस में लड़ना सिखाया
तुम हो खफा
तुम हो खफा और मैं हैरान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

ॐ नमः शिवाय
अल्लाह हो अकबर

मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मालिक के घर हैं सारे
ह से हिन्दू बना है
म से मुस्लिम बना है
ह और म से जानो
हम सब बने दीवानों
दो हाथ पाँव मेरे
दो हाथ पाँव तेरे
जब जिस्म हैं एक जैसे
फिर हम जुदा हैं कैसे
पहचानो मैं सच की पहचान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

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.

Chup chup apni jaan pe sah jaa aa aa

Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de

Dukh sah ke bhi mukh se kuchh na kahe

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 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

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

Blog Day :

4575 Post No. : 16182

Today is 26th january (2021), which is republic day for India. Arguably, this is the most important day for independent India, more important than even the independence day, in my opinion.

71 years have passed since India was declared a republic on 26 January 1950. During the past 71 years, we have been through lots and lots of changes, upheavels, trials and tribulations, calamities etc. Thankfully today we find ourselves in a better position than what we were at in 1950. In fact, we find ourselves in a much better position vis a vis 1990.

I was born when the first Prime Minister and first President of India were still around. So I have lived through the eras of all the Prime Ministers and Presidents of India that we had !

During all these decades, some good practices have taken root. On the other hand, we still have some bad practices that we need to get rid of.

Instead of talking about what the government should do, here I will largely discuss what we need to do. Since we are a democratic republic, our behaviour decides what the government does, rather than the other way round.

Here are some of my observations.

1. Someone else will do it:- This attitude, which is basically passing the buck, has harmed India a great deal over the decades. Instead of doing the work ourselves, we wait for someone else to do the job. As a result, that job remains pending. Worst still, that creates a long lasting problem for the nation.

2. Chalta hai attitude– We expect others to be perfect, but we ourselves are far too lax in our on dealings. We can find fault in the batting technique of Virat Kohli, but we rarely judge our own performance in our workplace with the same high standards.

3. Putting self interest before national interest– Look at the demands of any unions, be it staff union or officers union. All the ten points of their memorandum would contain demands about betterment of their perks, not a single demand would be about the betterment of the organisation.

4. Very few people, typically 1 % of the people are supposed to bear the burden of the entire population. For instance, only 1 % population of India pays income tax, and that money is then squandered in giving subsidy to “poor” people instead of helping them train to come out of “poverty”.

5. Wealth creation and wealth creators have been demonised in India. Poor people and Poverty get glorified. This state of affairs should change immediately.

6. Many indians suffer from inferiority complex vis a vis western countries. This inferiority complex is misplaced and is a result of systematic brainwashing.

The above are some of the points that one can think of without much effort.

What do I have to suggest to improve matters ?

I will make a one point suggestion, instead of making too many suggestions. My one point suggestion is, we have to overhaul our education system. The present education system churns our zombies, who lack the ability to think for themselves and are easily brainwashed. It serves the purpose of the self seeking politicians but it has harmed the country a great deal in all fields. Our education system encourages rote memory, rather than application of knowledge. No wonder our manpower cannot even do basic works, forget doing cutting edge technical works. Whatever competent manpower we have are not because of our education system but inspite of this education system.

We have framed our constitutution based on the British Constitution. But we have not framed our education system based on British education system. British (namely Lord Macauley) gave us an education system in India. Britain herself has an entirely different kind of education system, one that does not seek to produce semi literate babus, unlike the case in India. As soon as India had our constitution, we needed to have our own education system. It has become too late now. Seven decades too late, but better late than never. we can still try and ensure better education system for the future generations.

Instead of insisting on same degrees for everyone, we need to insist on vocational training based on the aptitude of students, instead of imposing the same kind of education on everyone.

Failing an elephant because it cannot climb a tree, failing a monkey because it cannot fly, comdemning a goat because it cannot uproot a tree, that is how our Macaulean education system judges its students.

India has requirements of qualified people in all fields. What is happening now is that all people take the same education.Those who score higher marks become engineers, doctors. Those who score lower marks become civil servants. Those who score even lower become clerks. People scoring even lower become peons, guards etc. Those who cannot get any jobs become freelancers. Those who are not good enough for any jobs become politicians. And all these people are not trained properly for their jobs ! A clerk is not trained to be a clerk. A security guard is not trained to be a security guard. When a civil contractor hires workers to execute his contract, the workers like say masons, or welders are not properly trained for their jobs. They have mostly learnt their work from other workers. In my proposed education system, a mason or a welder will need to be trained by a recognised welding trainer, a plumber by a recognised plumbing trainer etc. This is because continuous imporovemnt takes place in all fields of activities. Our workers whether in organised sector or unorganised sector are far far behind in their knowledge and mastery about latest advancements in their fields. Even security guards should have training.

The above discussion is largely for workers in manufacturing and services sector. The same is needed for the agriculture sector where Indian productivity is among the lowest in the world. One reason is that majority of farmers are not educated. Farmers too need to be well educated in their area of activity, instead of trying to earn the same meaningless degree as others.

In summary, our education system should ensure the supply of highly skilled manpower in all the fields. Even cleanliness, which is considered a menial work, is a specialised work, and people who are tasked with this work need to be well trained for this work.

As I have mentioned earlier, we need to identify the aptitude of individuals and give them vocational training based on his attitude. This is what happens in advanced nations. They do not encourage mindless enrolment in colleges for taking meaningless degrees.

We need not reinvent the wheel. The kind of education system that I have suggested in already available in advanced nations. I suggest that we adopt the German education system. It is a tried and tested education system and we all are aware of German products and their quality that this education system helps produce.

Any country can have two kinds of resources- one is natural resources (mineral ores etc) and other is human resources. One will notice that a country can develop only when its human resources are developed, even if they lack natural resources. For instance, Japan, Israel, Singapore are three nations that have negligible natural resources but they are highly advanced nations thanks to their sell trained human resource. On the other hand we have examples of countries (for example African countries) that are under developed despite possessing vast mineral resources.

India fortunately is very well blessed by nature. But we have failed to make the most of our nature given resources because we have not made the most of our human resources. If we harness our human resources, we sill not only utilise them produtively, we will also be able to take advantage of what the expetts describe as our potential demographic advantage (vast majority of population of India being in working ager group, unlike most other countries).

Today (26 January 2021) we are celebrating our 71st Republic day. We have quite a few things to feel proud about on this occasion. American and British media had predicted millions of covid 19 deaths in India. India has proved them wrong. It appears that these media were watching their own countries in mirror. As on today USA and Britain continue to reel under COVID 19 epidemic, ith Britain even “pioneering” a more dangerous strain of this virus. Unlike these countries, India is even offering low cost and safer vacceines to many countries of the nation.
See this thank you message by Brazil. Makes every Indian proud.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Anjaan”(1941). “Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

One will notice that the song is from an era when India was not even independent, forget being a republic. But still this song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep who sore patriotism on his sleeves, that too in an era when it was very risky to do so. In this song, sung by Ashok Kumar and others, they exhort the naujaaan of Bharat (viz the human resource of India) to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself to them. And the song advises them not to miss this opportunity unlike the missed opportunities of the past.

Pannalal Ghosh is the music director.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala many years ago. This happens to be the 500th lyrics contribution by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog. A befitting achievement for him on the occasion of the Indian Republic day, seeing that he too, like Kavi Pradeep, wears his partiotism on his sleeve.

On this occasion, I ish a happy republic day to one and all. Jai Hind.

Song-Duniya ke anyaayion anyaay ki hoti khair nahin (Baalyogi Upmanyu)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

duniya ke anyaayiyon
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
aandhi ho barsaat ho ya toofaan ho
bujh na sakega deepak mere suhaag ka
sach ki hogi ee ee
sach ki hogi jeet sada
jismein hai zara bhi pher nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
phailti rahti dharam ki bel wo
kat nahin sakti kabhi talwaar se
deen dayaalu u u
deen dayaalu
apne in bhakton ki taale ter nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 114 # Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975 #
——————————————————————————————-

I was aware of the movie ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1957’ mainly associating it with its song ‘raat ne kya kya khwaab dikhaaye’ sung by Talat Mahmood. However, during the tagging of this movie for ‘Yippeeeee Project’ I came across a vinyl cover of a movie having same title with Rakesh Pandey featuring on its cover. That was more than a hint for me that this could be of a movie from the ‘seventies. When I checked it in HFGK Vol-V, I found this movie made in the year of ‘1975’. (I may have read the movie name earlier in the ‘Geet-Kosh’ but may had forgotten about it).

Today ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ get introduced on the blog to join ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani’ of ‘1957’. And that serves our mission of bringing movies with same titles on the blog.

‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ was directed by S.S. Balan for ‘Gemini Pictures Circuit Pvt Ltd, Madras’. S.S. Balan was also the producer of this movie. M.S. Vishwanath was the co-director of this movie and Kittapaa and Rangan were the assistant directors for this movie.

The movie was based on an original ‘Kannada’ screen play written and directed by Siddalingayya. It had Rakesh Pandey, Jeevan, Jayshree Gadkar, Neerja, Baby Rama, Nazeer Hussain, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, C.D. Dubey, Bramchari, V. Gopal, Birbal, Ram Avtar, Bihari, Sharif Romani, Ishwarlal, Raghva, Master Raju, and introducing Lokesh and Manjula.

Story of this movie was written by Gorur Ramswami Ayyiyangar and dialogues were written by Vishwanath. diting of this movie was done by M. Umanath with M. Mani as his assistant.

This movie had five songs written by Indeewar and composed to music by Ravindra Jain.

S.No. Song title Singer/s
01 Tu hi bataa tujhe paane ka kaun sa hai tarikaa Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
02 Kesar jaisi tu kishori, kanchan kaaya teri gori Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri banno pyaari banno Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar
04 Sukh shaanti usey kya miley jiske man mein bair… kuchh naa milaa kisiko nafrat ke dwaar se.. Mohd Rafi
05 Jai kaali, jai mahaakaali, karna tu sabki rakhwaali Manna Dey, Jaspal Singh

Asha Bhonsle, Jaspal Singh, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.04.1975.

(I have not watched this movie but whatever visuals I have watched during the preparation of this post it seems that the movie was shot on beautiful locations of Karnataka and as acknowledged in the titles the places are Village – Kalasapura, Kelagur Coffee & Tea Estates etc. (Knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie can throw more light on this)).

Today we are going to listen a song from this movie sung by Mohd Rafi. The lyrics by Indeewar are worth paying heed to and it carries a message relevant for all times (I think so).

However, it seems that this song was not included in the movie, except for the first few lines (I guess that maybe it was censored? because of the straight forward lyrics).

The movie is available online and though I had not watched this movie I was looking for when this song happens in the movie. There is a scene in this movie where the rival groups of the village – one led by Rakesh Pandey and other (I think) by Lokesh – are shown coming out of the court premises where the song starts but after the first four lines only the music keeps playing and not the verses. This is the only solo song in this movie and all other are duet songs.

Let us now listen to the song written by Indeewar and composed by Ravindra Jain. Mohd Rafi is the singer of this ‘song with a message’…

Song-Kuchh na mila kisi ko nafrat ke dwaar se (Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani)(1975) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

sukh shaanti

apnaa galaa naa kaato
apni hi talwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

Insaan ki aadat

jeewan bhar ye pind na chhoden
inse bache ae koyi kaise

jeet se bhi dukh utna
dukh jitnaa haar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se ae

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 112 # Debutant movie – Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973
——————————————

While discussing this song ‘chhoone na doongi main haath re’ from ‘Zindagi-1964’ Atul ji had given the complete details of filmography(or discography) of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I was looking for a movie where music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan and the movie was yet to be introduced on the blog. The filmography starts from ‘Barsaat-1949’ and the last movie in this list is ‘Love In Bombay-2013’.
The oldest movie in the list not yet introduced on the blog is ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’. I am presenting a song from this movie today.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker.

It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili, and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie had total five songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Here are the details of these songs;

Song Lyricist
Dekho dil na kisi ka toote… pyaar ka rishtaa sachchaa rishta, baaki rishte jhoothhe Indeevar
O ho ho ho … aansoo ko paseene mein badlo … mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai Indeevar
Oye, nakh nakh nakhre waali… de de re dil mera … Shakeel Badayuni
Mera naam hai Flory … Shakeel Badayuni
Haay haay dukhi jaaye mori kamariyaa… Shakeel Badayuni

Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970) and Indeevar.

For today’s presentation I have selected a motivational song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Indeevar. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

With today’s song, ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ makes its debut on the blog …

Let us now listen to this song with a message….

Song-Aansoo ko paseene mein badlo (Pyaar Ka Rishtaa)(1973) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

o ho ho ho o
o ho o °°°°°°°°

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik pal mein chhupaa hai ik jeewan
ik pal na bitaanaa baaton mein
kismat na sitaaron mein dekho
kismat hai tumhaare haathhon mein
baaton se kuchh bhi nahin hota
haathhon hi se kuchh bantaa hai
mehnat ka naam hai taaj mahal
mehnat ka naam ajanta hai
insaan ka paseena girte hi
patthar se phool nikalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik roz to daulat ke badle
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
saara sansaar badalnaa hai
jab mehnat ki qeemat hogi
chaandi na kahin chal paayegi
sikkon mein nahin dhal paayegi
mehnat ko nahin chhal paayegi ee
haathon ki haraarat lagte hi *
pal mein faulaad pighalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

parbat ka dil bhi dehaltaa hai)

ओ हो हो हो ओ
ओ हो ओ°°°°°°°°
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

इक पल में छुपा है इक जीवन
इक पल न बिताना बातों में
किस्मत न सितारों में देखो
किस्मत है तुम्हारे हाथों में
बातों से कुछ भी नहीं होता
हाथों ही से कुछ बनता है
मेहनत का नाम है ताज महल
मेहनत का नाम अजंता है
इंसान का पसीना गिरते ही
पत्थर से फूल निकलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

इक रोज़ तो दौलत के बदले
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
सारा संसार बदलना है
जब मेहनत की कीमत होगी
चांदी न कहीं चल पाएगी
सिक्कों में नहीं ढल पाएगी
मेहनत को नहीं छल पाएगी ई
हाथों की हरारत लगते ही *
पल में फौलाद पिघलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

*(श्रवण कड़ी में)
(हाथों की ताक़त के आगे
परबत का दिल भी दहलता है )
