Mere Saajan Hai Us Paar – Bandini(1963)

Sachin Karta himself has sung a few songs he composed for in Hindi films. One of these – which utilizes his nasal tone and bard-like voice, evokes the Bhatiali folk and the life of the rural boatmen of Bengal.

Lyrics: Shailendra

O re maajhi, O mere maajhi
Mere sajaan hai us paar
Main mann-maar hoon is paar
O mere maajhi Ab ki baar
Le chal paar Le chal paar

Mann ki kitab se tum
Mera naam hi mita dena
Gun to na tha koi bhi
Avgun mere bhula dena
Mujhe aaj ki bida kaa
Mar ke bhi rahega intezaar

Mat khel jal jayegi
Kehti hi aaj mere mann ki
Main bandini piya ki, Main sangini hoon saajan ki
Mera kheenchti hai aanchal manmeet teri
