Musical Notes

Nee Madhi Challaga / Khilte Hai Gul Yahan

I was listening to online radio over my iPhone the other day and an old song played on one of the stations. It took me a while to put my finger on it, but finally I realized that most of the tunes in the song were copied from a Hindi movie.

The song in question is from the 1973 Telugu classic Dhanama Daivama (Meaning: Money? Or God?). Music composed by T. V. Raju to the Lyrics penned by Dr. C. Narayana Reddy. This beautiful melody, Nee Madi Challaga, was Sung by P. Susheela.


Lyrics:

Nee Madi Challaga Swaami Nidurapo
Devuni Needalo Vedana Marachipo
Nee Madi Challaga

Yeh Sirulenduku, Yeh Nidhulenduku
Yeh Soukhyamulenduku
Aatma Shanti Lenide
Manishi Bratuku Narakamaunu Manasu Tanadi Kaanide

Nee Madi Challaga Swaami Nidurapo
Devuni Needalo Vedana Marachipo
Nee Madi Challaga

Cheekati Musirina, Vekuva Aaguna
Yeh Vidhi Maarina
Daivam Maruna
Kalimilona Lemilona Paramatmuni Talachuko

Nee Madi Challaga Swaami Nidurapo
Devuni Needalo Vedana Marachipo
Nee Madi Challaga
