झर गए पात
बिसर गई टहनी॰ ॰ ॰

One of his most well known poems. It tells of the in depth vision of this poet’s mind that has explore the sensitivities of the human mind and this existence. He passed away day before yesterday, on a Sunday afternoon. Went in for a post lunch nap, never to rise again – as simple as that. He was 87.

Born as Nandram Das Bairagi on 10th February, 1931, in Rampura village of district Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, he had a penchant for writings songs and poems right from his teen years. The manner in which he strung together his verses, and then the way in which he presented them, made him a popular poet at kavi sammelans and cultural programs. People were drawn to this very young man whose words of romanticism, and the social and philosophical messaging brought him to limelight quite early in life. Once at such a gathering, the local candidate for an upcoming election anointed him with the name ‘Balkavi’, and this name then became his signature for life. [This episode is attributed to Kailashnath Katju, a candidate belonging to the Congress party.]

The association with this political outfit became stronger as he moved into election politics. In 1968 he was elected to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly. He won again in 1980, and was a minister in the cabinet till 1984. From 1984 to 1989 he was a member of the Lok Sabha. After this, he was also a member of the Rajya Sabha from 1998 to 2004.

In his heydays, he wrote occasional songs for films, in the decades of 1960s and 1970s. His first film as a songwriter is ‘Gogola’ from 1966. The duet “Zara Keh Do Fizaaon Se Hamen Itna Sataayen Na. . .” became quite popular. Not only had he the ability to write such romantic verses, but also to create such comedy songs as “Bori Bunder Se Borivali, Dekh Li Maine Gali Gali”, also from the same film.  He has written about 40 songs for the following films (as per Geet Kosh listings),

  • Gogola (1966)
  • Do Boond Paani (1971)
  • Reshma Aur Shera (1971)
  • Veer Chhatrsaal (1971)
  • Achhaa Bura (1972)
  • Kshitij (1974)
  • Rani Aur Lalpari (1975)
  • Jaadu Tona (1977)
  • Pal Do Pal Ka Saath (1978)
  • Azaadi Pachchees Baras Ki (UR)
  • Chautha Paalna (UR)
  • Mausam Badla Hai (UR)

His best known and most popular creation is “Tu Chanda Main Chaandni. . .” from ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, that is tuned by Jaidev. In ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’, he worked with SN Tripathi and in ‘Rani Aur Lalpari’, he teamed up with Vasant Desai. His verses from ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ are poetic gems – “Nimbuwa Pe Aao Mere Ambuba Pe Aao…”, “Gauri Raat Guzaar Do Kar Chakvi Se Baat…”, and “Jaga Rahe Ghanghor Nagaade Bula Rahi Hai Ranbheri…”. His songs in the normal B grade horror film ‘Jaadu Tona’ are way beyond the quality of the film – “Har Sannata Kuchh Kehta Hai, Har Khamoshi Kuchh Gaati Hai. . .” and “Saanwri Saloni Jamna Ka Jeevan, Ganga Ki Umar Paaye Tu. . .”.

Today I present this unusual philosophical song of love from the film ‘Jaadu Tona’ (1977). The music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. The singing voices are of Yesudas and Asha Bhosle. A poignant and curious exchange on the topic of love, that talks not of birds and roses, but tells the tales of silences and the conversations of mind. Well composed in a slow pace for the mood of the song, and equally well rendered by Asha ji and Yesudas.

Bidding goodbye to the poet of simple verses and deep insights. RIP Balkavi Bairaagi ji.

बिसर गई टहनी
करूण कथा जग से क्या कहनी॰ ॰ ॰

Lyrics

har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

wo sapnon mein bhi aate hain
to khushboo si chhaa jaati hai
us waqt ka aalam kya hoga
jab baahon mein aa jaayenge
andaaz lagaane waale hi
andaaz lagaaya karte hain
aksar gumsum sapne hi
awaaz lagaaya karte hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

is aag se jo takraata hai
ye aag usey pee jaati hai
is aag ko jo pee jaata hai
kehte hain khuda ho jaata hai
do chaar gunaahon ki hasrat
chhoti si tamanna maafi ki
insaan hi rehne do mujhko
mujhko na khuda kehlaana hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kehte hain khuda ki haalat bhi
kuchh aisi hi ho jaati hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

वो सपनों में भी आते हैं
तो खुशबू सी छा जाती है
उस वक़्त का आलम क्या होगा
जब बाहों में आ जाएंगे
अंदाज़ लगाने वाले ही
अंदाज़ लगाया करते हैं
अक्सर गुमसुम सपने ही
आवाज़ लगाया करते हैं
सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

इस आग से जो टकराता है
ये आग उसे पी जाती है
इस आग को जो पी जाता है
कहते हैं खुदा हो जाता है
दो चार गुनाहों की हसरत
छोटी सी तमन्ना माफी की
इन्सान ही रहने दो मुझको
मुझको खुदा ना कहलाना है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कहते हैं खुदा की हालत भी
कुछ ऐसी ही हो जाती है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है
