Blog Day : 3554 Post No. : 14261

So, minus 1 and plus 1, we still got to the 100th Yippeee film yesterday.

Minus 1 because on 3rd April, Atul ji had announced the Yippeee-ing of the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), after posting its ‘sixth + seventh’ songs together – an announcement that turned out to be incorrect. Avinash ji pointed out that there is still one more song to be posted from this film. With some more leg work and info-search we now have more detailed info about the song list of this film. Below is the details of the songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ that I had shared with Atul ji the same day, in email.

I just checked the 1981-90  volume compiled by Jagdish Purohit and Ghulam Qureshi, with the involvement of Suman Chaurasia of Indore. This volume was published as the HFM lovers were/are waiting for Hamraaz ji to bring out his next volume.

In this volume, the compilers have listed 12 songs for this film. Since ‘Razia Sultan’ is a well known film, and a landmark in itself, I am sure lots of information sources are available and there is less chance that the compilers would be in error. In a musical film like this, number of songs certainly would not be limited to 6/7.

The list of all songs, as per this volume, is

  1. Ae Dil e Nadaan
  2. Aayi Zanjeer Ki Jhankar
  3. Naghma e Mohabbat
  4. Jalta Hai Badan
  5. Hariyala Banna
  6. Ae Khuda Shukr Tera
  7. Khwaab Ban Kar Koi Aayega
  8. Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai
  9. Taraana e Jashn e Taajpsohi
  10. Shubh Ghadi Aayi Re
  11. Ae Dil e Nadaan (this may be part 2, or a reprisal)
  12. Falak Se Awaaz Hai

As per our blog listing, we have as yet covered 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and possibly 11. As per the singer list, the songs 9 and 10 seem to important loaded songs; 9 has 4 singers and 10 has 6 singers. Both these songs have Ustad Faiyaaz Ahmed Khan, and Ustad Niaz Ahmed Khan in the list of singers.

Just like maybe Pakeezaah, the remaining songs are probably less heard, less popular ones, which may drop from the collective memory.  You may recall that the non-Ghalib items in Mirza Ghalib (3 in number) remained obscure for quite a long time, since the radio and the radio listening public focused on the Ghalib creations in this film.

So that was minus 1 for 3rd April.

However, Atul ji is quick to also point out that back on 16th Jan, we had actually Yippeee’d two films together on the same day. That had happened, because both Atul ji and I were separately working on two different Yippeee posts, and our communications to each other regarding the posts seemed to have crossed but not read by each other. So in quick succession, both he and I posted two Yippeee songs that day – “Gaadi Dilli Waali Chali” (‘Delhi Junction’, 1960) and “Soyi Soyi Chaandni Hai. . .” (‘Khazaana’, 1951). In his write up, Atul ji has noted that,

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

In fact, as Atul ji was hastening to complete the above Yippeee post for that day, I was equally busy on my keyboard, and almost simultaneously – a difference of about 45 minutes, I too posted the Yippeee post for the day, only to realize immediately that the work is now duplicated. So I immediately went back into my post and added this footnote,

[Ed Note: It was only after this song got posted that I took a breather, only to notice that Atul ji has also already welcomed another film (the previous post) to Yippeee-land today. It most certainly seems like the ‘yippeee-ing hour’, what with two films racing to Yippeee-land, just within minutes of each other. 😀 😀 ]

So, the two miscues cancelled each other out, and we are firmly able to announce that 100 Yippeee films have happened in the first 100 days of this calendar year (Gregorian). 🙂

Now, moving beyond the century yesterday, we come to ‘IOI’ of the Yippeee train today. Atul ji had posted the penultimate song of this film yesterday. Yes, I refer to the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’ – a film that has a full list of very memorable songs. This film made its debut on our blog way back on 12th Nov, 2010. Just see the list below of the songs posted so far. Each one of these songs is a veritable gem – in a mood that is so representative of the music of the 1960s.

Main To Tere Haseen Khayaalon Mein Kho Gayaa Sangraam 1965 3195 12-Nov-10
Masti Mein Doley Jiyaa Ho Sangraam 1965 4270 25-Jul-11
Dam Dam Dam Dam Damroo Baaje Sangraam 1965 10405 25-Oct-14
O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana Sangraam 1965 14093 23-Feb-18
Nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re Sangraam 1965 14255 10-Apr-18

These songs represent a music that was full of verve, full of energy, full of a joyous expression of love, taking in a lot of influence of the western rock and pop genres. Rhythm was more or less the dominant temper of this music, which was made for a popular taste that was already initiated by an increasing influence of western rhythms on the young minds of this nation. The decade of the 1960s was the time when the joys of freedom and the pain of partition were both tending to fade into paler shades, getting better of the passing generations.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay, and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong.

After his earlier cameo appearances in films of 1950s, the first lead role that Dara Singh landed was in the film ‘King Kong’ of 1962. This was followed by ‘Aawaara Abdullah’ in 1963, then ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’, ‘King of Carnival’, ‘Rustom e Baghdad’, also 1963. In 1964, we see him in ‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan’, ‘Aaya Toofaan’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Dara Singh’ (yes, a film titled after his own name), ‘Rustom e Rome’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Veer Bhimsen’. So when we come to 1965, Dara Singh has already appeared in a lead role in 12 films in just three years. The reason I am making this observation is that when I viewed this film in preparation for this post, I found a very interesting aspect. In this film, he is accompanied in the star cast by his younger brother Randhawa. The two brothers have already appeared together in ‘Aawaara Abdullah’, ‘Hercules’ and ‘Veer Bhimsen’. This is their fourth film together. As I viewed this film, I realized that the dialogues of both are dubbed in voices other than their own. I have not had time to sample once again his earlier films (some of which I know I have seen earlier) to ascertain whether this dubbing aspect is present in any of his earlier films. I do remember reading, well a long time back, that in the initial years of his career, his diction of Hindi/Urdu dialogues was less than desirable, as his voice had a very strong Punjabi accent to it. But I did not realize that he would be going through more than a dozen films and still be required to have his dialogues dubbed. The voice of the dubbing artist is very familiar, but I am not able to place a name to it right now.

The film is a costume drama with a strong element of palace intrigues and lost and found siblings stories. The corrupt Wazir (prime minister) has the king assassinated, and usurps the throne for himself. The king has two sons. The nanny for the two children is able to escape the bloodshed in the palace, along with one of the princes. The Wazir kind of adopts the second son, and raises him on a diet of lies and misinformation, hiding the truth about the death of the king, his father. The Wazir has a daughter, whom he wants to get married to the prince-in-custody. The prince-in-custody also fancies the lady. But the lady had lost her heart to a commoner in one of the villages in the kingdom, during some interludes that are very conveniently created by the story writers. The person she fancies, is actually the other prince, who had been taken away by the nanny and was raised by her in anonymity. So the tale of this film is about how the two brothers at first are enemies on account of fancying the same lady; then some way through the film, the truth about siblings is revealed and they become a team to vanquish the scheming Wazir and reclaim their father’s kingdom. And yes, the younger sibling gracefully steps aside for his elder brother to take over. 🙂

The one more interesting thing that I note about this film is the long drawn fighting sequences. Regular fans of Dara Singh films will recall the name King Kong. Yes, we had a wrestler by this name in that era when freestyle wrestling was a hugely popular spectator sport with the likes of Dara Singh, Randhawa, Goldstein, Imam Bux, Sheikh Ali, Hamida Pehalwan and of course the Great Gama Pehalwan etc. being the big names billed for such events. Believe it or not, but that was an era when for a freestyle wrestling match between some great names, one could expect anywhere from 1 Lakh to 2 Lakh spectators to be present (a Lakh is 100,000).

King Kong was a hugely bulky wrestler. His real name was Emile Czaja, and he was of mixed Indian – Australian descent, born in Hungary. He became a professional wrestler in the sub-continent and also appeared for bouts in all of south east Asia and Japan etc. Like Dara Singh he also migrated into Hindi films during the late 1950s and 60s, and appeared in many films generally as part of the villain’s team that would give a thrashing the heores to start with, and then at the end, get a beating of their lives at the hands of the lead wrestler. On YouTube, there are a few video footage clips of actual wrestling matches between Dara Singh and King Kong. Both of them appeared in many Hindi films together.

King Kong makes an appearance in this film also, as one of the henchmen of the devious Wazir. He has an additional significant presence in this film, as he also plays the father to the the young lady (Aruna Irani) who is the love interest of Maruti, the sidekick of Dara Singh in the film, making up a very detailed CSP (comic side plot). He fights on the side of the baddies, but eventually gives in to the goodies, since his daughter is in love with one of the goodies team member.

Ah yes, so I was talking about the long drawn out fight sequences in the film. They begin to appear almost from the start of the film, continue regularly throughout. Given these segments, the CSP and the songs, the actual story and dialogues have very little room to maneuver themselves. Everything other than the fight sequences seem to be in a hurry to get themselves done with. 🙂

Today’s song is the sixth song in the film. And what a rollicking dance song this one is. The trio of music directors – Lala Asar and Sattaar seem to be outdoing themselves in getting through the songs of this film. The song is filmed as a group dance song. The occasion is that the Wazir’s daughter has fled her father’s palace, choosing to come to the village where Dara Singh resides with his mother (actually his nanny from the royal babyhood days). The Wazir’s soldiers are chasing her, and they have been given a good beating by Dara Singh, Maruti and their team. This song is a celebration of their victory. We see Dara Singh and Geetanjali (Wazir’s daughter) and Dara Singh’s ‘mother’ seated prominently amongst the audience watching this performance. Maruti is part of this group dance. The video clip that is available is somewhat out of focus, on account of colors being splayed a little, as the photochemicals on the celluloid have aged. The face of the lead dancer is not very clear, and before I hazard a guess as to her identity, I request other friends and readers to please help identify this actress.

Enjoy this final song from this film to make it on to the billboard of our blog. And with that, we announce the Yippeee-dom status to this film. All aboard.

Blog Day : 3496 Post No. : 14053

It would be late 1960s, early 1970s – फिल्में देखने का चस्का चढ़ा था। Did not have much more than some fanciful fancies at that time, and very little understanding. I would fancy the heroes, especially Dev Anand, Rajendra Kumar etc. And I would have lasting crush on the leading ladies; generally lasting for a few weeks. I would fancy them to be my leading ladies 😉 – Sadhna, Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Saira Banu etc.

Besides these two types of fancies, there was, yes one more. This was not so much of a fancy, rather it was more of an abhorrent fright. Of a special person when he appeared on the screen. And a panic would run through the mind and I would clutch a parent’s hand and whisper “oye, Pran aa gaya”.

Such was the dread in the minds of us pre teen kids. Whenever we saw him enter the frame, our hearts were like – now something bad is going to happen. He is going to bully someone, he is going to beat up someone, he is going to insult someone, he is going to cheat someone, he is going to put his weight on a lady and make her scream. . . Ah yes, these were the type of stereotype images that were associated with Pran, and we despised him for all our childhood.

Fast forward now to mid 1990s. I was in the US, and had a long stint in the city of Lansing in Michigan, working on a state govt. project. Lansing is comparatively a small town, despite the fact that it is the capital of Michigan state. There were only two other things besides the state government – the state university and a cornflakes factory owned by Kellogs. And being in Michigan, we were snowed in for six months, and chilled out for another four. We just got a warm season for two months – July and August.

So there was not much to do in that town, other than concentrate on your work. For me, there was a grand saving grace. The small town had a big video library of Hindi films, run by a Pakistani national and a very dear friend, to date – Akbar Bhai. It was not long before I became his best customer, and just for my sake, he would communicate with other dealers in the country and sometimes even travel out, to get the films that I would be requesting of him. I purchased two Toshiba VCRs, bought many packs of VHS tapes, and spent a lot of time copying videos of songs from the VHS tapes that I rented from him.

Sorry for this longish digression, I am coming to the point. The net is that for the few years that I spent in Lansing, I watched and replayed a ton of Hindi films that were available on VHS – of course my choice would taper off after 1970s. In one set of many weeks together, the movies that I rented from him, were a combination of many leading heros, and many genres. But all of them had one thing in common. The villain was Pran. In each and every one of these films, Pran would be getting a hiding of his life in the last 10 to 15 minutes of every film. After having sat through probably a score of films over a period of 4 to 5 weeks, my mind changed and started sympathizing with him. No matter what the film was, he would get beaten up black and blue at the end. And to add insult to injury, he was forced to apologize and plead for forgiveness, or summarily be taken away by the police.

Really telling you, I started to feel sorry for him. And I started to wonder. Day in and day out, he would be shooting films with his co stars, and on every set and every studio floor, he would be taking a beating in front of hundreds of onlookers, every single time. And my mind started to build upon a psychology of such an individual. Of course it did strike me somewhere within this analysis, that yes, money is also involved. But then I rationalized – if I were given money, just for getting beat up every week and in every film I worked in, I would throw away the money, and walk away. But the money angle aside, I used to wonder at this gluttony for punishment. In every film, he misbehaves with ladies, he cons his own family members, he bullies and beats up people. And then, he gets beat up real good for the happy ending of a film. And my mind was like – does this guy never learn? Does he never give up?

I never did see the film ‘Guddi’ (1971) in its first runs. I would get to see it many years later, maybe on Doordarshan or maybe on a VHS play. An inkling of the true nature of this gentleman – I encountered for the first time in this film. Kusum (a teenager, role played by Jaya), who is smitten with a crush for actor Dharmendra, is taken to Bombay by her uncle, Utpal Dutt, and is given a tour of the film studios – a view of how the films are actually made, and what these stars are in real life behind the scenes. So there is a scene, in which Jaya is with Dharmendra, and Pran walks by. They greet each other; and Kusum is hiding behind Dharmendra in fear. Dharmendra admires Pran’s wrist watch, and Pran immediately takes it off and presents it to Dharmendra. After Pran leaves, Jaya reacts strongly, insisting to Dharmendra to return the watch – “इस में कोई चाल है” is what she says. Dharmendra starts to laugh, and then explains. That Pran Saab in real life is an impeccable gentleman, a complete reverse of what his screen image is. He is an amiable, a very friendly, a very kind and a very helpful person.

Along with Guddi (Kusum), it was also a wiping away of a fanciful sheen in my mind, associated with the person called Pran. Then of course, from 1967 onwards, he had started appearing in character roles other than as a villain, and had a complete makeover of his outward personality over the next few years.

But that image has sustained, because the films exist. That is what typecasting does to you. In reality, Pran is somewhat of a popular name in north India, amongst Punjabi and Hindi speaking families. In the 1950s and 60s, the dread of his roles was so great that actually, families stopped naming their children with the word Pran, and its variations. The Gabbar Singh gloat about “बीस बीस कोस तक॰ ॰ ॰” was still to come many years later. 😀 😀

Today (12th Feb) is the birth anniversary of Pran Saab. I have picked this song from the 1964 film ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ for the anniversary remembrance today. Yes, there is a particular reason. It is one of the rare occasions, when Pran Saab has lip sync-ed a song, and danced on screen, from the era of his continued reign as the arch villain of Hindi films. Of course, after 1967 and ‘Upkar’, when he transitioned into character roles, and that too in a big and significant way, he got to perform many a song on screen. In fact, there was a period of time in 1970s and 80s that specific and meaty roles were written for him, and the screen performance almost always included a song lip synced by him. But in the era till the 1960s, he just has an occasional song assigned to him.

Although I have not made a definitive search for them, I recall the following; the duet “Jise Dhoondhti Phirti Hai Meri Nazar” from the film ‘Sheesh Mahal’ (1950); then the fun song from ‘Munim ji’ (1955) – “Dil Ki Umangen Hain Jawaan”. This latter song is also a unique piece of music – Pran Saab has sung for himself in this song. Yes, of course, the iconic “Hai Aag Hamaare Seene Mein. . . Hum Bhi Hain, Tum Bhi Ho” from the musical bonanza ‘Jis Desh Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). Sterling performance, as Pran Saab rides two horses simultaneously, standing on the back of the horses, one foot on each horse.

And then we come to today’s song. The song is a dance sequence being performed by Gopikrishan Maharaj and Madhumati. In the three antaraa song, the middle antaraa turns out to be a fantasy play, as Pran, who is actually an audience on the side, daydreams himself to be performing the song, along with Sandhya Roy. the lady companion that I am not able to name. So the middle antaraa is performed on screen by Pran Saab and Sandhya Roy his lady companion. Now this performance, a folk dance type steps, trying to emulate someone none other than the great Gopikrishan Maharaj himself, is a type of performance that one does not associate with him (at least in this phase of his career), and none other that I have seen in any other film. I request our knowledgeable friends and readers on the blog to please add more such instances, if they are aware. And yes, the request also includes help to identify the actress who is his lady companion in this clip.
[Ed Note: The lady companion in this clip is identified as Bengali actress Sandhya Roy, as per the inputs provided by Shri Partha Chanda.]

‘Pooja Ke Phool’ is the typical south Indian family drama that is produced by the prestigious banner of AVM and directed by Bheem Singh. The extreme emotionalism of such family dramas, plus the complexity (zaniness??) of the plots and sub plots, sometimes makes this category of films insufferable. So in this film, Pran is the husband of the niece of Dharmendra. Forget the age factor, even the appearances of the characters do not do justice to them. To top it, he (Pran) is also having an amorous fling on the side. In this song, we see him come to see this street performance along with his lady love from the extra-marital affair. Dharmendra too, chances to be on the spot. He sees the two together, and walks away in anger. A little later in the film, the lady starts to demand rights and shares as a wife. She threatens to kill him. The two meet, and in the melee that ensues, the lady gets killed. Mohan Choti is an eyewitness. However, Dharmendra takes on the blame, just so that his niece’s life and home is not jeopardized. Case comes to the court. Ashok Kumar is the public prosecutor, and he has this personal thing against Dharmendra – he has ditched Ashok Kumar’s daughter, and married someone else. Now enter the daughter, Mala Sinha, who is also a lawyer. She comes to the court as the defense lawyer for Dharmendra. Despite his repeated confessions in the court, the case is made to continue. Dharmendra and Mala Sinha were an amorous pair once, but circumstances led Dharmendra to marry a blind girl (Nimmi). If all this does not sound too complicated yet, maybe it is time to watch the film itself. 😀 😀

Not saying too many things about the film, I must confess that I am quite bowled over by the music and the songs. The list if songs is quite impressive, as given below.

Banda Parwar. . . Raat Ke Andhere Mein Yun Chori Chori Chale Kidhar 14034 8-Feb-18

The songs of this film have been penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

I would like to write about one more thing, related to this song. The choreography of this dance is done by Gopikrishan Maharaj himself. And that simply is excellent. The dance movements are very imaginatively sequenced, and very excellently executed, including the facial expressions and the twitching of eyebrows. The pace of the song and the pace of the singing is – fast. And the dance steps themselves are so energetic and so beautifully arranged. Pran Saab surely has his work cut out as he takes on the 2nd antaraa on screen.

So now let us enjoy this wonderful peppy dance number. And remember this very lovable villain of the Hindi cinema.

“Ek din Aadhi Raat”(1971), an obscure “Social” movie was directed by Kamal Sharma for Mahesh Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Kumkum, Sujeet Kumar, Aruna Irani, Asit Sen, Praveen Paul, Meenakshi, Mohan Choti, Baldev Mehta, Master Dev Anand, Niraml Anand etc, with guest appearances by Manmohan, Jagdev and Lata Sinha.

One song from this movie has ben covered in the past.

Today (25 december 2017) is Christmas. Those who are kids and kids at heart think of Santa Claus the moment Chrishmas is mentioned. And he lives in North Pole.

If you live in North of India (like I do), it is extremely cold and foggy all over. So we are getting North pole like weather without needing to go there and get an idea of the place where Santa Claus resides. 🙂

Here is a Happy Chrishmas song from “Ek din Aadhi Raat”(1971) which is a party song about Christmas. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

I am unable to identify the lip syncer of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

I take this opportunity to wish Merry Chrishmas to all.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

kankariya maar ke jagaaya. . .
kal tu mere sapne mein aaya. . .

I believe this is another so verily a commonplace experience, waking up in the darkness of the night. The structured minds and the regimented ‘scientific’ thought process, has a very different view of what this sleeplessness is. On the other hand, a romantic, poetic mind will have an expression so totally different, and so wonderfully human. And if that mind is familiar with, and is a connoisseur of Hindi film music, that mind will have simply no difficulty in understanding. For there is so much that the song writers have written, and so much that the singers have rendered. . . about this waking up in the middle of a deep sleep.

This post is the 13600th post, 600th song of Sahir Ludhianvi and 1100th post of Sudhir Jee in the blog.

One more song that I can’t believe has not yet been included in the annals of our blog. Such a melodious, lilting and fast paced lovable song. It used to be aired on the radio quite regularly, and was one of the listening favorites. The vintage is 1964, and so quite well still retained in the memory. As I started to search for a Sahir song for this post today, I was not quite satisfied with some of the ones that showed up as possible candidates. You see, as we progress and post more songs, and the artist counts starts to close in to their total no. of songs, then in all likelihood, the better ones, the favorite ones are mostly accounted for on the blog. So if one is looking for a favorite song as a representative work of an artist, it becomes quite an effort to locate one.

Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

Hearty greetings to all friends and readers for the gracious festival of Id today.

The days of fasting and penance have ended, and now comes the grand celebration of Id.  Today is the first day of the month of Shawwal.  Today is the day when festive spirit is at its most cheerful, the attire of the people is the finest, and more than anything, the bonhomie and the bonds of friendship are at their best.  It is the time to leave behind any differences and the memories of any past offenses, to forgive and to forget the resentments. As the lines of this celebratory song emphasize,

ye wo din hai ke hans hans kar giley shiqwe bhula dena
agar dushman bhi aa jaaye to ye keh kar manaa lena
id ki shaam hai

Today is the day to forget the resentments with a smile
Even if an enemy comes face to face
Give a hug and reconcile, and say
It is the day of Id today
