Na Jiya Lage Na – Anand (1970)
If Madhumati introduced the genius of Salil Chowdhury to Hindi film-goers, then the soundtrack of Anand(1970) – the Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, cemented his reputation as a music composer who created classic songs, even while continuing his experimentation with the use of western orchestra in Indian music.
This is again a tune, used in both Bengali and Hindi songs. The Bengali song “Na Mono Lage Na” was again rendered by Lata Mangeshkar as in this film -picturized on Sumita Sanyal.
Naa jiyaa laage naa
Tere binaa meraa kahin jiyaa laage naa
Jeena bhuule the kahaan yaad nahin
Tujhko paya hai jahaan, saans phir aayi wahin
Zindagi tere sivaa haay bhaaye naa
Piya teri baavri se raha jaaye na
Tum agar jaao kabhi jaao kahin
Waqt se kehna zara woh thaher jaaye wahin
Woh ghadi wahin rahe naa jaaye na
