tum samay ki ret par chhodte chalo nishaan
dekhti tumhen zameen
dekhta hai aasmaan

These uplifiting lines are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak. The poetry composed sometimes in the early 1950s, was presented as a song in the 1953 film ‘Naya Raasta’. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is a song writer who has been confined to mythological and religious fare for most of his career. Active in the Hindi cinema since 1943, his songs can be heard in films all the way to the end of 1970s.

Remembering Saraswati Kumar Deepak today (8th July) on the anniversary of his passing away. And incidentally, yesterday (7th July) was his birth anniversary also.

He was born on 7th July 1918, at Navsthala Hasanpur in district Bulanshehar in Uttar Pradesh. His original name was Ram Gopal Sharma. Not much information is available about his early years. His education was in Hindi and Sanskrit. He did his BA from Meerut College. As a young man, he had begun writing poetry and prose.

In early forties he came to Bombay, and in 1942 he joined the production house of Fazli Brothers. His first assignment was as the writer of advertisements and promotional material in Hindi, for the films produced by Fazli Brothers. His first song appeared in the film ‘Zabaan’ of 1943 – “Dheere Se Kadam Badhaata Chal, Bigdi Taqdeer Banaata Chal”, which was composed by C Ramchandra and sung by Ishwarlal and Kaushalya. His next song – “Soti Hun Ab Chanda Mujhe Jagaa Dena”, appeared 1944, in the film ‘Badi Baat’. The song was rendered by Amirbai under the direction of Feroze Nizami. This song became very popular in its time, and the name of its writer started getting known somewhat in the industry.

In 1945, his songs appeared in ‘Piya Milan’ and ’Swarn Bhoomi’. However, 1946 became a defining year for him. Four films were released that carried songs written by him – ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Maansarovar’ and ‘Uttra Abhimanyu’. As the names of these films suggest, yes, they had an effect to have Saraswati Kumar typecast as a writer for religious and mythological films. This categorization he was never able to shake off for the rest of his career.

That is not to say that he did not write other type of songs for other genres of films. The songs “Kahin Ka Deepak Kahin Ki Baati” (‘Aag’, 1948), “Raat Gayi Phir Din Aata Hai” (‘Boot Polish’, 1953, and “Nigaahon Se Dil Mein Chale Aayiega” (‘Hameer Hath’, 1964) are a sampler that represents that wide portfolio of genres he could handle. He has written close to 350 songs for about 100 Hindi films. Besides that, he translated and dubbed the songs and the dialogues for about 25 regional language films.

Saraswati Kumar was not just a song writer. He was also a screenplay writer, a dubbing specialist and a renowned author of literature for children. Books like ‘Haathi Ghoda Paalki’ and ‘Jai Janani, Jai Bharati’ became quite popular and famous. He used to write a lot for All India Radio – plays, songs, sponsored programs etc. for two years, he anchored the program ‘Apni Kahaani, Apni Zubaani’ – sponsored by Bank of Baroda. And above all, as a journalist, he continuously contributed stories and articles for newspapers and magazines.

He passed away in 1986, just after completing his 68 year.

The film ‘Bansari Bala’ is produced by Moghabhai Deasi under the banner of Desai Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors listed for this film is Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, and Al Nasir.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Six songs are written by Pandit Faani and the remaining three are by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Music direction is by Kamal Mitra. All the three songs which are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak have been sung by Sudha Malhotra. One of these three is already showcased here on our blog – “Main To Chanda Ki Nagri Se Aayi Re”.

 Today’s lilting song is in the sweet singing voice is of Sudha Malhotra. Words are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak, and the signature melody is by Chitragupt. On screen, the song is performed by Chitra, who tells about her heart after someone came to her dreams and cast a captivating spell on her. The song is filmed in a garden. And we can see the subject of her aspirations (Daljeet) also present there, although she is not aware as she continues with the song.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

Listen and enjoy.
