Puchho na kaise – Meri Soorat Teri Aankhen(1963)

No post about Sachin Karta would do justice to him if it doesn’t explore his classical roots. A disciple of the noted Bengali classical singer, Bhismadev Chattopadhyay, he created several raga based film songs. The most noted among these is this gem, sung by Manna Dey. The original song in Bengali is by Kazi Nazrul Islam. A Bengali rendition by Asha Bhonsle is available here.

Raga: Ahir Bhairav, Thaat: Bhairav

Lyrics: Shailendra

Puchho na kaise maine rain bitai
Ik pal jaise ik yug bita
Yug bite mohe neend na aayi

Ik jale deepak ik man meraa
Phir bhi naa jaaye mere ghar ka andhera
Tadpat tarsat umar gavaayi

Na kahin chanda na kahin taare
Jyot ke pyaase mere nain bichaare
Bhor bhi aas ki kiran na laayi

Lyrics:

Abhi na jao chhod kar ke dil abhi bhara nahin

Abhi abhi to ai ho abhi abhi to
Abhi abhi to ai ho bahar banke chhai ho
Hawa zara mahak to le nazar zara bahak to le
Ye sham dhal to le zara
Ye sham dhal to le zara ye dil sambhal to le zara
Main thodi der jee to lun nashe ke ghunt pee to lun
nashe ke ghunt pee to lun
Abhi to kuchh kaha nahin abhi to kuchh suna nahin
Abhi na jao chhod kar ke dil abhi bhara nahin

Sitare jhilmila uthe
sitare jhilmila uthe charag jagamaga uthe
Bas ab na mujhko tokana
Bas ab na mujhko tokana na badhake rah rokana
Agar main ruk gayi abhi to ja na paungi kabhi
Yahi kahoge tum sada ke dil abhi nahin bhara
Jo khatm ho kisi jagah ye aisa silasila nahin
Abhi nahin abhi nahin nahin nahin nahin nahin
Abhi na jao chhod kar ke dil abhi bhara nahin

Adhuri aas
Adhuri aas chhodke adhuri pyaas chhodake
Jo roz yunhi jaogi to kis tarah nibhaogi
Ke zindagi ki raah men jawaan dilon ki chah men
Kayii muqam aenge jo ham ko azamaenge
Bura na mano baat ka ye pyaar hai gila nahin
Haan yahi kahoge tum sada ke dil abhi bhara nahin
Haan dil bhara nahin nahin nahin nahin nahin
