"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"
The rare, unheard antras of \"Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai\" from SHOR (1972). By Bobby Sing (Did You Know - 56)
23 Sep, 2013 | Articles on Music, Poetry and Life / Did You Know!

Being the third article in the series of discovering those rare and unheard stanzas of memorable hits from the Golden Era of Hindi Cinema, here we have two unrecorded antras written by Santosh Anand for the immortal song “Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai” from Manoj Kumar’s SHOR (1972). Melodiously composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and soulfully sung by Lata Mangeshkar & Mukesh, the song is rated among the best creations of that era, explaining life and its games using very simple yet meaningful words, well chosen by one of our most talented but forgotten or under-rated lyricists/poets of Hindi Cinema Janaab Santosh Anand.

Such is the magic in this spirited song, that while singing it along with the new antras, I went on to write five more stanzas on my own as my humble tribute to all the maestros associated with the track. But first, here are the two precious additional ones mentioned above, added by the poet himself in his own impeccable style……!

“Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai, Maujon Ki Rawaani Hai,
Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Jo Beet Gaya Hai Woh, Ab Daur Na Aayega,
Is Dil Mein Siva Tere, Koi Aur Na Aayega,
Ghar Phoonk Diya Humne, Ab Raakh Uthaani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Teri Meri Kahaani Hai!

Tum Saath Na Do Mera, Chalna Mujhe Aata Hai,
Har Aag Se Waaqif Hun, Jalna Mujhe Aata Hai,
Tadbeer Ke Hathon Se, Taqdeer Banani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Teri Meri Kahaani Hai!

(And with all my love and respect towards the original creators, here are the antras I wrote while flowing with the spirit of the track……….as per my own vision towards life…..!)

Tum Saath Agar Hotey, Aaasa(n) Yeh Dagar Hoti,
Main Chain Se Jee Leta, Tum Paas Agar Hoti,
Kuchh Beet Gayi Apni, Kuchh Aur Bitaani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kucch Bhi Nahin……………Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Sukh Hai To Dukh Bhi Hai, Dono Ka Bichhona Hai,
Ik Khel Hai Yeh Jeevan, Hota Hai Jo Hona Hai,
Umrhey Hue Baadal Ne, Bijlee Bhi Giraani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kucch Bhi Nahin……………Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Gar Dhoop Hai Yeh Jeevan, Yahaan Shaam Bhi Aati Hai,
Har Gham Ki Ghata Do Din, Aakar Chali Jaati Hai,
Aansoo Na Baha Aye Dil, Yeh Reet Purani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kucch Bhi Nahin……………Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Woh Dekh Raha Hai Sab, Tu Uska Khilona Hai,
Yeh Daur Hain Jeevan Ke, Aisa Bhi Kya Rona Hai,
Usi Ek Sahaare Ne, Bigrhi Bhi Banani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kucch Bhi Nahin……………Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Kuch Aur Thehar Aye Dil, Jeena Tujhe Aayega,
Ik Khaas Ada Tujhko, Dushman Bhi Sikhayega,
Baazi Jo Laagayi Hai, Woh Jeet Ke Jaani Hai,

Zindagi Aur Kucch Bhi Nahin……………Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!

Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai, Maujon Ki Rawaani Hai,
Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Tere Meri Kahaani Hai!”

With Cheers to the Masters,


(As an additional trivia, the lyricist used the opening lines of both his unused antras in a song “Dil Deewane Ka Dola” from film TEHELKA (1992) in its concluding part filmed on Dharmendra. And Manoj Kumar used the opening couplet, “Tum Saath Na Do Mera…..” in one of his own dialogues in film ROTI KAPDA AUR MAKAAN released in 1974.)

Dear Bobby Singh ji,
I am ardent fan of Raj Kapoor Saab and Mukeshji and sing their songs with lot of love and passion. Mera Naam Joker among other pictures of Raj Saab, like Sangam Shree 420, Aawara, Jis Desh..., Jagte Raho have been my all time favorites. Jane Kahan Gaye woh Din, song goes deep into my mind and I sing that Song in many family parties. I knew about Stanza "Iss Dil ke Aashyan mein.." and also 2 more stanzas as described in your articles but could not get if from even Nitinji whom I recently visited in Bombay.

Finally Keshwariji (daughter of Hasrat Jaipuri Saab) forwarded this article to me.

Recently I have recorded this unheard and unsug part of the Great song Jane Kahan Gaye woh din.... in USA in my Home Studio and would like to send it over to you for your comments. Your article helped me doing this and I am very grateful to you.
