74th Republic Day on 26th January, 2023

We have all heard this ghazal, in the form of patriotic songs, songs with nationalistic flavour in various films made on Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and some not made on him. Such is the power of this inquilabi poetry, that people seemed to have recited and memorised this one through generations, when there was no digitalization of data and published material was not available for cheap. Or not easily accessible in remote areas. The ghazal has gone hand in hand with ‘mera rang de basanti chola’ through out history of independent India, in movies and beyond. Be it hindi films or regional language films, obviously Punjabi movies. But I am prepared to not be surprised to find these two songs in other regional language films, like Bengali, Marathi and others.

Just today, Peevesie’s Mom’s post on ‘Kaahe ko Biyaahi Bides’ has appeared on the blog. The same creation by Amir Khusro, for the umpteenth time. And this was created centuries ago. At least ‘sarfaroshi ki tamanna’ is less than 100 years old.

I am reproducing here the original ghazal by Bismil Azimabadi (Sourced from Rekhta.com in devnagari script).

सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है
देखना है ज़ोर कितना बाज़ू-ए-क़ातिल में है

ऐ शहीद-ए-मुल्क-ओ-मिल्लत मैं तिरे ऊपर निसार
ले तिरी हिम्मत का चर्चा ग़ैर की महफ़िल में है

वाए क़िस्मत पाँव की ऐ ज़ोफ़ कुछ चलती नहीं
कारवाँ अपना अभी तक पहली ही मंज़िल में है

रहरव-ए-राह-ए-मोहब्बत रह न जाना राह में
लज़्ज़त-ए-सहरा-नवर्दी दूरी-ए-मंज़िल में है

शौक़ से राह-ए-मोहब्बत की मुसीबत झेल ले
इक ख़ुशी का राज़ पिन्हाँ जादा-ए-मंज़िल में है

आज फिर मक़्तल में क़ातिल कह रहा है बार बार
आएँ वो शौक़-ए-शहादत जिन के जिन के दिल में है

मरने वालो आओ अब गर्दन कटाओ शौक़ से
ये ग़नीमत वक़्त है ख़ंजर कफ़-ए-क़ातिल में है

माने-ए-इज़हार तुम को है हया, हम को अदब
कुछ तुम्हारे दिल के अंदर कुछ हमारे दिल में है

मय-कदा सुनसान ख़ुम उल्टे पड़े हैं जाम चूर
सर-निगूँ बैठा है साक़ी जो तिरी महफ़िल में है

वक़्त आने दे दिखा देंगे तुझे ऐ आसमाँ
हम अभी से क्यूँ बताएँ क्या हमारे दिल में है

अब न अगले वलवले हैं और न वो अरमाँ की भीड़
सिर्फ़ मिट जाने की इक हसरत दिल-ए-‘बिस्मिल’ में है

As per Rekhta.com, this ghazal is by Bismil Azimabadi, and researchers have found that it is present in his collection ‘Hikaayat e Hasti’. Hikayat means – story, tale, narrative, narration, fable, anecdote. All those things. Rekhta.com has also explained the reason of this ghazal being wrongly attributed to Ram Prasad Bismil, is the tradition that when Ram Prasad Bismil was being hanged, the “matla’a” of this ghazal was recited by him.

This legend also explains why this ghazal and ‘mera rang de basanti’ are invariably included in all films made on Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

I found these versions of this song already posted in the blog:

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai Shaheed (1965)
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai Shaheed e Azam Bhagat Singh (1954)

Incidentally, both versions are sung by Rafi Sahab, one being group song.

I remember, there is a recitation in “Rang de Basanti” (2006) too. So, these two songs really go hand in hand. This movie was not on Bhagat Singh, even so.

The word Sarfarosh means ‘one who is ready to die for a good cause’, jaannisar or jaanbaaz. This persian origin word’s impact is such, with less than 30% population who can speak and understand Urdu, there are four movies with this word, Sarfarosh 1964, Sarfarosh 1985, Sarfarosh-e-hind 1999 and Sarfarosh in 1999.

This style of poetry is known as Inquilabi shayari. Content and substance will matter in all eras. However much technological advancement, we are seeing at present could not have happened without human intellect, which created the problems, analysed them and solved them. Now those same solutions are in the process of reformation and refurbishment. Strong content with truthful intent will survive for centuries, mere laffazi will not.

So this is also the USP of Urdu language in the present era, with its relatability, with its small vocabulary, with scope for borrowing from its parental, friends, neighbours, relative languages, without really requiring expansion of its dictionary. Ha! what am I saying? This is truly debatable. I am prone to passing sentences, without corroborating them with any scientific, analytic proven facts.

As we celebrate 74th Republic Day today, we must accept, it’s the substantial literary output presented by the authors, writers and poets of the region, for centuries, which has survived the test of time. It was the combined intellect of the constitutional committee, with its 100s of members, which has given us the constitution. There was no, ‘one size fits all’ solution in front of these men and women. They had the ‘tehzeeb’ and ‘rivaayat’ of different schools of intellectual and religious thoughts that have prospered in our region and elsewhere and shaped it. And they managed to create a workable system, which has served us for better part of the century.

I sometimes wonder, if the constitution can be called a work of fiction or non-fiction. It is something that the Parliament must implement and the courts of law must uphold. I am confused, between implemented and not implemented, upheld, and not upheld constitutional rights.

Enough of my musings, will move on to the song.

I am presenting yet another Rafi version of ‘sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai’. This one is from ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh (1963) composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram. The lyrics are credited to Ram Prasad Bismil, in this instance. The film is exactly 60 year old in 2023, so it of retirement age.

These 2 songs from this fil are already posted:-

Song Date of post
Hain abhi aur ae dil tere imtihaan 23 March 2012
Chadh ke sooli Bharat maa de jis ne kasht nivaare 23 March 2022

And this is by no means the end of ‘Sarfaroshi ki tamanna’ as far as hindi film songs are concerned. There are more songs remaining to be covered.

Today’s song is from the ‘1947’ movie ‘Romeo And Juliet’,

It was directed by Akhtar Hussaain for ‘Nargis Art Concern, Bombay’ (home production of actress Nargis).

It had Nargis, Sapru, Anwar Hussain, Sunalini Devi, Nisar, John Cavas, Hameed Murad, Nazir Kashmiri, Violet, Pushpa, Abdul Rasheed, Amanullah and others.

This movie has eight songs in it and it had made its debut on the blog on 12.08.2014 with a song sung by Khayyam Saab and Zohrabai Ambalewali.
The second song from this movie followed immediately in next month and it was posted on 21.09.2014 which was sung by G.M. Durrani.
Thereafter it was a gap of almost three years after which the third song from this movie was posted on 26.07.2017. This song was a solo song sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

The fourth song from this movie again took more than three years to appear on the blog, and it was posted on 28.12.2020. This song again was a solo sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

The fifth song of this movie was discussed on 08.06.2022. So it was again after a gap of almost one and half year that the fifth song of this movie was posted after its fourth song.

Out of the eight songs of this movie, lyricist for three songs is Manohar Khanna. One song each is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, Akhtar Shirani, Jigar Moradabadi and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.

Lyricist’s name for one song is not mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950). However one of the audio links of this song mentions the lyricist name as Majrooh Sultanpuri for this song. We are going to listen to this song today.

*(In my earlier write-up with the songs of this movie I had mentioned two songs for Majrooh Sultanpuri considering the above link. But today I am correcting myself and leaving it to the knowledgeable readers to throw light on this song and its songs.).

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

28th Sept 2022 marks the first birthday of Lata Mangeshkar without her physical presence in this world. Due to old age and couple of hospitalizations at the fag end of her life, her passing away on that fateful day of 06th Feb 2022 was not really shocking so to say.

But then, an emptiness befell upon music lovers all over the world. It was as if a part of our lives was lost forever. It was a different kind of mourning; one of helplessness and the bare truth that such a soul would never be born again. And such is a gargantuan legacy of work left behind that one can only sit back and wonder how an individual could achieve so much in a single life. It is not about the span-life of her singing or the number of songs that she has sung, but of the utmost dedication, sincerity to her career and the love of the masses that she received.

Calling her the greatest singer ever would arguably be an understatement. Love for her voice knows no religion, caste, creed or man made international boundaries. For her voice touched the innermost recesses of human souls. The voice that she has left behind has amalgamated with the atmosphere and will continue to regale music lovers for generations to come.

Adjectives, honorific titles, awards are altogether too, a pale shadow compared to what she has achieved and left behind. Her work and career encompassed the entire gamut of technology from shellac records to the present cloud technology.

Blessed are we for breathing the same air, sharing an epoch and a planet with Lata Mangeshkar.

There have been many biographical posts, anecdotes, series etc. on Lata Mangeshkar on this blog. In fact, in the recently concluded long series concluded by Atul ji covers her entire singing career from first to her last song sung in HFM. Also, her wiki page is quite elaborate if one has to understand the entire spectrum of her life and career in acting, singing, composing, production etc.

There were two aspects that I wanted to include in this post, and I have to profusely apologize to readers that I could manage neither due to other priorities and paucity of time.

One was to put forth a table listing her very first one or two dozen songs irrespective of whether she sang for Hindi / Marathi or for herself / playback. There are many blogs, articles, interviews and information out there on the net containing these facts, but to have it on a well-prepared table with her songs in chronological order and then get it vetted by veterans in the field was what I was looking for.

The second was to present my interest and limited knowledge and on her association with various composers and singers. There is so much that I wish to keep on writing about her Hindi film songs. Her pronunciation of the word “hum” in the title song of ‘Barsaat’ (1949) and again the finest way she sings the word “chaar” in the duet with Shankar Dasgupta in ‘Girls’s School’ (1949) amazes me to no end. That she could so effortlessly empathize with the situation of the song on screen in her voice modulation in 1940’s itself speaks volumes as to where she was headed in her career.

Why she has a solitary song for Gyan Dutt? Why Kishore Kumar used her sparingly in his compositions? Will the solo song from the film ’26 January’ (1956) ever be heard by music lovers are some of the points that I wanted to touch upon. Let me see, how soon, I can put these thoughts on the blog.

Her association with the many composers, singers, lyricists, actors etc. can be discussed with no end. Naming a few will be a gross injustice to the many others that she sang for. I shall hence stop myself from even attempting to do so.

Coming to the song to be posted for today’s occasion and considering that most of her songs in the golden period have already been covered on the blog, I made a rather strange request to the editors to kindly offer me a good song for the occasion. I know there are many more songs yet to be covered, but then again due to time constraints, I thought, I will make this new request. 🙂

A sad, solo from late 40’s or early 50’s was what I requested for.

And guess what?

Sudhir ji promptly sent me a gem of a sad solo from 1949. My goodness! Of all the years, 1949, the year Lata Mangeshkar stamped herself as the undisputed queen of playback. Music lovers know the importance of the year 1949 and the abundant flow of melody in that particular year.

Thank you, Sudhir ji and Atul ji. I could not have asked for anything better.

So here is the gem from 1949 film ‘Rakhi’ in the mellifluous voice of one and only Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing her a very happy birthday, I am sure the heavens and the Gods are more blessed to have Hema Hardikar aka Lata Mangeshkar amongst their midst.

Song – O Rooth Jaane Waale, Mera Qasoor Kya Hai  (Rakhi) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Saarshaar Sailaani, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon mujhko gham diya hai
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

fariyaad kar rahi hai
sehmi hui jawaani
kisko sunaaun ae dil
dukh dard ki kahaani
apne nahin jab apne
gairon se kya gila hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

beete huye dinon ki
baaton ko yaad kar ke
guzri hui suhaani
raaton ko yaad kar ke
main dil ko ro rahi hoon
dil mujhko ro raha hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

din raat kha raha hai
gham teri berukhi ka
nazdeek aa raha hai
anjaam zindagi ka
tu hi bata ke aise
jeene mein kya maza hai. . .

ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों मुझको ग़म दिया है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

फरियाद कर रही है
सहमी हुई जवानी
किसको सुनाऊँ ए दिल
दुख दर्द की कहानी
अपने नहीं जब अपने
ग़ैरों से क्या गिला है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

बीते हुये दिनों की
बातों को याद कर के
गुज़री हुई सुहानी
रातों को याद कर के
मैं दिल को रो रही हूँ
दिल मुझको रो रहा है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

दिन रात खा रहा है
ग़म तेरी बेरुखी का
नज़दीक आ रहा है
अञ्जाम ज़िंदगी का
तू ही बता के ऐसे
जीने में क्या मज़ा है॰ ॰ ॰

We can see from above that four songs of this movie have been posted on the blog so far.

This movie had made its debut on the blog on 12.08.2014 with a song sung by Khayyam Saab and Zohrabai Ambalewali.
The second song from this movie followed immediately in next month and it was posted on 21.09.2014 which was sung by G.M. Durrani.
Thereafter it was a gap of almost three years after which the third song from this movie was posted on 26.07.2017. This song was a solo song sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

The fourth song from this movie again took more than three years to appear on the blog, and it was posted on 28.12.2020. This song again was a solo sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

Out of the eight songs, Manohar Khanna is the lyricist for three songs. Two songs are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the remaining three songs are written by Akhtar Shirani, Jigar Moradabadi and Faiz Ahmed Faiz – one song each.

Incidentally, the four songs that are already coveredon the blog are written by four different lyricists viz. Majrooh Sultanpuri, Manohar Khanna, Akhtar Shirani and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.
That leaves us four songs from the movie that yet to be posted. They are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri (one song), Manohar Khanna (two songs) and Jigar Moradabadi (one song).

Here I am presenting the fifth song from this movie. It is a solo song sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali. Jigar Moradabadi is the lyricist.

Jigar Moradabadi (born on 06.04.1890 and passed away on 09.09.1960) was a prominent Urdu Poet of yesteryears.

Here is a brief information about his biography written by our respected Shri. Sadanand ji in his post ‘sharma gaye lajaa gaye daaman chhudaa gaye’ (I am reproducing the same here so that readers can also read it here).

“Jigar Muradabadi (06/04/1890 – 09/09/1960) has been often called as ‘shaayar of beauty and love’. Jigar confined his poetry mostly covering his admiration for beauty, love, and emotions. It is said that his poetry has some influence of Daagh Dehlvi and Momin Khan Momin.
I have read through almost all of his ghazals that are available online and in Hindi (or Roman Hindi). There are no philosophical or spiritual tones in almost all of his ghazals. Likewise, I have not come across any poetry depicting the situations during the British rules though he had spent much of his life under British rule. Even if such poems do exist, perhaps they have not been well publicised. After independence also, his poetry did not venture much into the socio-economic situations in the country which had been the main plank of Urdu poets associated with PWA.

Jigar says :

Unka jo farz hai wo ahl-e-siyasat jaane
Mera paighaam mohabbat hai jahaan tak pahunche
[What is their duties only politician would know.
I give the message of love wherever it reaches]

As in the case of some Urdu poets like Majaaz Lucknawi, Jigar’s ghazals are a sort of his own autobiography. From 1920 to 1938, his life was captivated by alcohol and the beauty. Married at an early age, he had numerous love affairs, all of which turned out to be failures. These are all reflected in his ghazals. But unlike Majaaz who rued his failed love affairs in his poetry, Jigar can find joy even in his unfulfilled love because, for him, the experience of love itself is a joy.
It has been stated that he had a huge fan following encompassing both the elites and the masses. The respect he got cut across the religious lines. It is said that participation of Jigar Muradabadi was a sure success of a mushaira due to his poetry and the melodious renditions.
Jigar did not formally become guide to the budding young Urdu poets of his time. But he was a source of inspirations and mentors for poets like Behzad Lucknawi, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Shakeel Badayuni, Khumar Barabankvi etc.”

Today’s song is a melancholic song.

Let us now listen to today’s song…


Song-Kya bataayein ishq zaalim kya qayaamat dhhaaye hai(Romeo Aur Juliet)(1947) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-Jigar Moradabadi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

Kya bataayein
Kya bataayein ae
Ishq zaalim
Kya qayaamat dhhaaye hai
Yoon samajh lo jaise dil
Seene se niklaa jaaye hai

Jab nahin tumko tasavvur bhi
Tumhaara kya garoor
Jab nahin tumko tasavvur bhi
Tumhaara kya garoor
Is se bhi keh do ke
Ye taqleef kyun farmaaye hai ae
Is se bhi keh do ke
Ye taqleef kyun farmaaye hai

Kis taraf jaaun
Kidhar dekhoon
Kise aawaaz doon
Kis taraf jaaun
Kidhar dekhoon
Kise aawaaz doon
Ae huzoome naamuraadi
jee bahot ghabraaye hain ae
Ae huzoome naamuraadi
jee bahot ghabraaye hai
Kya bataayein ae
Ishq zaalim
Kya qayaamat dhhaaye hai

Blog Day :

I often wonder if is it possible to go through and listen to all the songs that have already been posted on the blog? And, can I recall each of them when somebody asks me or refer to a film’s name and pose a question about its music director, lyricists or other artists or the star-cast of the movie?

I don’t know about others but for me it seems to be an impossible task as of now. Even though I am browsing the blog every now and then each day, still there are many many movies and their songs I have to go through. And when we found a missing gem of song that has not been posted on the blog, we are surprised to note that.

Today’s song is such a song, which according to me should have been posted on the blog long back. (But then I would not have got this chance of putting my thoughts here 🙂 ).

All this would not have been possible without the ‘Geet Kosh’ and ‘links’ of these songs. For this we have to thank all who have created the ‘Geet Kosh’ and also those enthusiasts who have uploaded and made these songs available online.

Today’s song is from the ‘1950’ movie ‘Sartaaj’. This seems to be a lesser known movie of its time.

“Sartaaj-1950” was directed by S. Khalil for ‘Umar Khayyam Films, Bombay’. It had Munawwar Sultana, Motilal, Manorama, Ansari, Mirza Musharraf, Shyama, Kuckkoo, Ratanbai and others.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).

Three lyricists were used for these nine songs, where Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote six songs, Shewan Rizvi wrote two songs and Partav Lakhanavi wrote one song in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Husnlal-Bhagtram.

Here is the list of songs in this movie and their status on the blog:-

Last but not the least, a big thanks to our regular reader Mr Deepak Patwardhan who had send reminder of this beautiful song that was missing from the blog till now.

Today’s song is from the ‘1949’ movie ‘Saawan Bhaadon’.

I think I had never gone through the songs of this movie earlier. Our regular reader on the blog Shri Deepak Patwardhan ji has send me ‘farmaaish’ of this song (he had even offered to note down the lyrics of this song too, however I told him that I will take care of that  ). And this is the reason that I got a chance to present a song from this movie on the blog today.

That also gives us an opportunity to have ‘a look on the list of songs this movie has.

But before that here is a brief about this movie.

“Saawan Bhaadon-1949” was directed by Ravindra Dave for ‘Prakash Pictures, Bombay.

It had Munawwar Sultana, Ramsingh, Randhir, Indu, Om Prakash, Jankidas, Raj Adeeb, Nirmal Kumar, Anwaribai, Baby Shyama, Gulnar, Tribhuwan Sinha and others.

As per HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950), ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ had ten songs written by Mulkraj Bhakri which were composed to music by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

Here is the list of songs from this movie along with their status on the blog (wherever the songs have been posted earlier).

————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (6 April 2012) saw as many as seven songs from seven different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks

We can see that four movies (out of 7) whose songs were covered in the blog ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (6 April 2022).

“Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) is one of the three movies eligible for BTYC today.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on several female dancers. We can see Nargis, Shyam and GopeYakoob seated in the front row among the housefull audience.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of “Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) are covered in the blog. “Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 35
————————————————————————————–
And Kavi Pradeep has written a couple of lines for people such as these. . .

kya log thhey wo deewaane
kya log thhey wo abhimaani

Lines that describe so aptly the young rebel lions of India – a group that came together to fight for unshackling the chains of the oppressive and cruel alien rule that had continued to serve its own ends, at the cost of the assets and riches of our nation.  A group that had members from all parts of the country, a group that was formed cutting across all the divisions and components of the society – Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azaad, Bhai Parmanand, Kartar Singh Sarabha, Batukeshwar Dutt, Ashfaaqullah, Shivaram Rajguru, Sukhdev, Ramprasad Bismil, Harnam Singh Saini, Bhagwati Charan Vohra, Durgawati Devi, Kishori Lal, Dharam Singh Hayatpur, Jatendranath Das, Sher Ali Afridi, Jai Dev Kapur, Shiv Verma, Kundan Lal, Mahabir Verma, Rajendra Lahiri, Thakur Roshan Singh, Sachindra Bakshi, Keshab Chakravarty, Banwari Lal, Murari Lal Gupta, Mukundi Lal, Manmathnath Gupta, Mohammed Abdullah, Gaya Prasad, Kanwal Nath Tiwari, Vijay Kumar Sinha, Prem Dutt, Des Raj, Ajay Kumar Ghosh. . . the list goes on and on in the pages of the history of the nation’s struggle for freedom.

Yes, they were “deewaane”. Theirs was a single-mindedness of purpose that put to shame even the word ‘deewaana’ itself. Bhagat Singh was a scholar of political ideologies, and his beliefs, his writings are wondrous gems coming from a mind so young. Violence was not his first or last resort, ideas and ideologies were. On 8th April, 1929, when he and BK Dutt threw two bombs in the legislative assembly in Delhi, they also threw leaflets explaining their cause and their action. The leaflet was written by Bhagat Singh himself. A line in the leaflet says – “It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled, while the ideas survived.” He went on to say – “पिस्तौल, बम, तलवार क्रान्ति नहीं लाते, बल्कि क्रान्ति विचारों की शान से पैदा होती है।” (Revolutions are born from the glory of ideas, not from pistols, bombs or swords).

And yes, they were “abhimaani” indeed. The dignity and pride of self-esteem was paramount. His belief in his right to freedom was steadfast. For him, violence was just an instrument for implementing and showcasing the ideas of freedom. To that end, even Gandhi ji has written in one of his famous articles in the magazine ‘Young India’. The article is titled ‘Between Cowardice and Violence’. In this, Gandhi ji writes,

“My creed of nonviolence is an extremely active force. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness. There is hope for a violent man to be some day non-violent, but there is none for a coward. I have, therefore, said more than once….that, if we do not know how to defend ourselves, our women and our places of worship by the force of suffering, i.e., nonviolence, we must, if we are men, be at least able to defend all these by fighting.”

Bhagat Singh himself wrote these words, when making a statement in court, during the trial of the bombing case –

“Force when aggressively applied is ‘violence’ and is, therefore, morally unjustifiable, but when it is used in the furtherance of a legitimate cause, it has its moral justification”.

After the killing of police officers Saunders in Lahore, Bhagat Singh and his associates escaped and had gone underground. When the plans were made to lob bombs in the Legislative Assembly, at first the group was against Bhagat Singh’s participation, because of his earlier association with the Saunders case. In the end, he prevailed and the group agreed to let him take the lead. The bombs were thrown, the leaflets were flung in the ensuing confusion. And it would have been an easy thing for Bhagat Singh and BK Dutt to escape under the cover of the cloud of smoke. But they stood their ground and let themselves be arrested. For Bhagat Singh believed that striking and then fleeing only ended up proclaiming them as terrorists. His purpose was to stand his ground, be arrested, and then get a visibility and a platform to expound his message to the public at large.

The trial of Bhagat Singh and his associates was, at best, a mockery of the Britisher’s own judicial system. The process adopted by the trial court was put in place through an unauthorized ordinance promulgated by the Viceroy, Lord Irwin. The ordinance itself was never approved by the Legislative Council or the Privy Council, as required by their own law. And it lapsed, even before seeing the light of approval by any authority.

On this fateful day in 1931, the execution was carried out in secrecy, and one day in advance of the announced schedule. The mortal remains of the executed heroes were removed from the jail premises in motor lorries in the dead of the night, and disposed of at an unknown place on the banks of Sutlej river, close to Ferozepur.

The news of the execution broke in newspapers on 25th March, 1931. A nation mourned the demise of the young rebel heroes. Gandhi ji said the following,

Bhagat Singh did not wish to live. He refused to apologise, or even file an appeal. Bhagat Singh was not a devotee of non-violence, but he did not subscribe to the religion of violence. He took to violence due to helplessness and to defend his homeland. In his last letter, Bhagat Singh wrote, ” I have been arrested while waging a war. For me there can be no gallows. Put me into the mouth of a cannon and blow me off.” These heroes had conquered the fear of death. Let us bow to them a thousand times for their heroism.

Subhash Bose praised the ultimate sacrifice with the words, “Bhagat Singh has become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths”.

Pt Nehru acknowledged that Bhagat Singh’s popularity was leading to a new national awakening. He said,:

“He was a clean fighter who faced his enemy in the open field … he was like a spark that became a flame in a short time and spread from one end of the country to the other dispelling the prevailing darkness everywhere”. He would later also write, “Bhagat Singh did not become popular because of his act of terrorism but because he seemed to vindicate, for the moment, the honour of Lala Lajpat Rai, and through him of the nation. He became a symbol, the act was forgotten, the symbol remained, and within a few months each town and village of the Punjab, and to a lesser extent in the rest of northern India, resounded with his name. Innumerable songs grew about him and the popularity that the man achieved was something amazing”.

Mohammed Ali Jinnha wrote,

“. . . he believes in the justice of his cause … however much you deplore them and, however, much you say they are misguided, it is the system, this damnable system of governance, which is resented by the people”.

Four years after Bhagat Singh’s execution, the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Sir Horace Williamson, wrote: “His photograph was on sale in every city and township and for a time rivaled in popularity even that of Mr. Gandhi himself”.

The singular act of ‘deewangi’ and ‘abhimaan’ has made Bhagat Singh a symbol of willful resistance against injustice, in any form or color. These were the young men with a determination of steel, whose resolve to not apologize and not to sign a mercy petition, for their acts of unbridled bravery in the face of an oppressive tyranny.

And the world remembers them. Even more than the image of any other leader of the non-violent or the violent versions of the struggle for freedom, even today one encounters the image of Bhagat Singh staring back from the sides of trucks, rear windshields of cars and other private and public vehicles, graffiti and motifs on the walls in the most unexpected places. It is an enduring legend that has caught the fancy of the people’s minds, from generation to generation.

Ashfaqullah Khan, another legendary martyr who was executed in 1927, at an age of 27 years, for his role in the Kakori train robbery case, wrote this original verse,

शहीदों के मज़ारों पर जुड़ेंगे हर बरस मेले
वतन पे मरने वालों का यही बाकी निशां होगा

On the mausoleums of martyrs
Carnivals of celebration will assemble every year
This shall remain as the last vestige
Of those who sacrificed themselves for the country

Today’s song is from the 1963 film ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh’. The verses are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram. The singing voice is not identified, and I request friends and readers to please help identify it.

The poetry in this song is in Punjabi language. In the lyrics section, I have attempted to also present the lines of poetry in translated Hindi. I seek apology if this translation is not perfect and poetical enough.

23rd March will serve to sustain the legacy and the memory of Bhagat Singh and others.

Lest we forget.

 


Song – Chadh Ke Sooli Bharat Maa De Jis Ne Kasht Nivaare  (Shaheed Bhagat Singh) (1963) Singer – Unattributed, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

waareya jinen desh ton
bachpan ditti ghol jawaani
kadey wi saanu bhagat singh di
bhulni nahin qurbaani

chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

dhan dhan sardar kishen singh
janm jide ghar paaya
thar thar dharti amber kamban
putt sherni jaaya
ghutti de azaadi waali
maata dudh pilaaya
bharat maa ne lai ke us ton
apni god bahaaya
kendi mere kasht nivaarin
je tu mera jaaya
pooja teri hove
mere dukh haringe saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

public safety bill firangi
jadon banaavan lagge
hind lai ik navi musibat
hot jagaavan lagge
bhagat singh te dutt enaan nu
mazaa chakhaavan lagge
vich assembly baamb maareya
sab ghabraavan lagge
khabraan gaiaan london
gorey soch daudaavan lagge
hun na bharat sahe ghulami
kaaran kameti saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

ona dinaan saandars kise ne
goli naal udaaya
kaatil os da bhagat singh nu
gairaan ne thehraaya
ik baamb da ik katal da
dohra case chalaaya
jhoothiaan lai gawaahiaan onu
faansi da hukam sunaaya
sun ke hukam maut da khidyaa
matthe vatt na paaya
gaj ke naare sheraan vaangu
inqlaab de maare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

पब्लिक सेफ़्टी बिल फिरंगी
जदों बनावन लग्गे
हिन्द लई इक नवी मुसीबत
होर जगावन लग्गे
भगत सिंह ते दत्त एनां नू
मज़ा चखावन लग्गे
विच असेंबली बाम्ब मारेया
सब घबरावन लग्गे
खबरान गईआं लंदन
गोरे सोच दौड़ावन लग्गे
हुन ना भारत सहे गुलामी
करन कमेटी सारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे
चढ़ के सूली भारत माँ दे
जिसने कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे

ओनां दिनां साँडर्स किसे ने
गोली नाल उड़ाया
कातिल ओस दा भगत सिंह नू
गैरां ने ठहराया
इक बाम्ब दा इक क़तल दा
दोहरा केस चलाया
झूठियाँ लाई गवाहियाँ ओनू
फांसी दा हुकम सुनाया
सुन के हुकम मौत दा खिडया
मत्थे वाट्ट ना पाया
गाज के नारे शेरां वांगू
इंकलाब दे मारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे
चढ़ के सूली भारत माँ दे
जिसने कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे

जिसने अपना बचपन देश पर वार दिया
और घोल दी अपनी जवानी
हम कभी भी भगत सिंह की
नहीं भूलेंगे ये कुर्बानी

चढ़ कर सूली पर जिसने
भारत माँ के कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कभी ना हिन्द भूल पाये

धन्य है सरदार किशेन सिंह
जिनके घर पे जन्म पाया
धरती और अंबर थर थर काँपें
इस वीर शेरनी के पुत्र से
माँ ने जिसे दूध में
आज़ादी की घुट्टी पिलाई
और भारत माँ ने उसे ले कर
अपनी गोद में बैठाया
उससे कहा तू मेरा बेटा
मेरे कष्ट निवार दे
तेरी पूजा होगी
जो तू मेरे दुख हर ले सारे

अंग्रेजों ने जब पब्लिक सेफ़्टी बिल
के बनाने की करी तैयारी
हिन्द के लिए एक नई मुसीबत
और जगाने लगे
भगत सिंह और बटुकेश्वर दत्त
इनको मज़ा चखाने लगे
असेम्बली के बीच बम्ब मारा
सब घबरा गए
लंदन तक खबर जा पहुंची
अंग्रेजों की सोच दौड़ लगाने लगी
सब कहने लगे के अब
भारत गुलामी और नहीं सहने वाला

उन्हीं दिनों पुलिस अफसर साँडर्स का
किसी ने क़तल कर दिया
और गैरों ने भगत सिंह को
क़ातिल कह के फंसा दिया
और भगत सिंह पर दोहरा मुक़द्दमा चला
बम्ब का और क़तल का
झूठी गवाहियां करवा कर
भगत सिंह को फांसी की सज़ा सुना दी
फांसी का हुकम सुन के वो खुश हुआ
माथे पर एक भी बल नहीं आया
और शेर की तरह गरज कर
इंकलाब के नारे लगाए

This date ten years ago (viz 12 March 2012) was a “lean” day by the standards of the blog those days. “Only” four songs were covered on that day. Here are the details of the songs :-

Blog post number song Movie (Year) Remarks

One can notice that two movies (out of four) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. Taht leaves us with two movies whose spngs can be covered as blog ten year challenge today (12 march 2022).

“Apsara”(1961) is one of the movies. This movie was directed by V M Vyas for Chitralaya Bombay. the movie had Padmini, Pradeep Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Daljeet, Nayana, Anwar, B.M.Vyas, Maruti etc in it.

Here is the sixth song from “Apsara”(1961) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

chhup chhupke chaley aao

aazaad hawaaon mein pali phool ki kali
aakar basi hai aaj tere pyaar ki gali
aakar basi hai aaj tere pyaar ki gali

mil jaao ke phir zindagi aazaad ho na ho
dil hamne de diyaa hai
tumhein yaad ho na ho o

tumhein yaad ho na ho
dil hamne de diyaa hai
tumhein yaad ho na ho o
yaad ho na ho o
