Pichla | Agla

For my parents who are on another trip having time of their life.  From the 1968 Hindi film Aashirwad ( = Blessings) Sung by the legendery actor Ashok Kumar. Music composed by Vasant Desai and Lyrics penned by Harindranath Chattopadhyay.

This is a Rap song which I believe pretty unique for Indian music in the 60s. Harindranath has written the lyrics so well that covered the stations names and so did Ashok Kumar rapped them including all the sounds of a train. However, the song is not pictured on a train at all. It is pictured on little children playing a game of train (by holding each other and running around). Not sure if kids still played this game, but I remember playing this a a lot my siblings and cousins as a kid.




Lyrics in Romanized Hindi:

Rel Gaadi Rel Gaadi
Whistle Sound
Rel Gaadi Rel Gaadi
Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk
Bich Waale Station Bolein
Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk
Dhadak-Bhadak Lohe Ki Sadak, Dhadak-Bhadak Lohe Ki Sadak
Yahaan Se Vahaan Vahaan Se Yahaan
Yahaan Se Vahaan Vahaan Se Vahaan
Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk
Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk

Phulaaye Chhaati Paar Kar Jaati, Baalu Ret Aalu Ke Khet
Baajara Dhaan Buddha Kisaan, Hara Maidaam Mandir Makaan
Chaay Ki Dukaan

Pul Pagdandi x`Tile Pe Jhandi, Paani Ke Kund Panchhi Ke Jhund
Jhopadi Jhaadi Kheti Baadi, Baadal Dhuaan Moth Kunwaan
Kunwein Ke Pichhe Baag Bagiche, Dhobi Ka Ghaat Mangal Ki Haat
Gaanv Mein Mela Bheed Jhamela, Tuuti Diwaar Tattu Sawaar

Rel Gaadi Rel Gaadi
Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk
Bich Waale Station Bolein
Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk

Dharamapur Bharamapur Bharamapur Dharamapur
Maingalor Baingalor Baingalor Maingalor
Maandawa Khaandawa Khaandawa Maandawa
Raayapur Jayapur Jayapur Raayapur
Taalegaanv Maalegaanv Maalegaanv Taalegaanv
Bellur Vellur Vellur Bellur
Sholaapur Kolhaapur Kolhaapur Sholaapur
Kukkal Dindigul, Dindigul Kukkal
Machhlipatnam Bimblipatnam, Bimblipatnam Machhlipatnam
Oongol Nandigol, Nandigol Oongol
Koregaanv Goregaanv Goregaanv Koregaanv
Mamadaabaad Amadaabaad Amadaabaad Mamadaabaad
Shollur Konnur Shollur Konnur

Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk
Bich Waale Station Bolein
Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk Ruk-Ruk
Dhadak-Bhadak Lohe Ki Sadak, Dhadak-Bhadak Lohe Ki Sadak
Yahaan Se Vahaan Vahaan Se Yahaan
Yahaan Se Vahaan Vahaan Se Vahaan
Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk, Chhuk-Chhuk Chhuk-Chhuk

I've been showing the children a whole group of "train" songs from India,and though they obviously cannot relate to this one, I do!
