Pichla | Agla

This magical melody that gets to the core of the life of a farmer was composed by Salil Chowdhury and Lyrics penned by Shailendra for the 1953 hit Hindi film Do Bigha Zameen ( = Two-thirds Of An Acre Of A Land). The movie was directed by the legendery Bimal Roy. His movies cut thru your heart and zero in on the social issue without any flimflam. His films evoke raw feelings when one watches.

And so this movie also shows the hardships of a farmer who is cheated of his land by deceit and when try to earn money to get his land back, his new life the city doesnt give him much help either. He faces the same cruelty that he faced in his village but with many folds. There is one scene in the movie where Balraj Sahni is forced by his passenger to pull the rickshaw faster than his girlfriend's rickshaw which leads to an accident hurting Balraj Sahni. That scene truly breaks your heart at the curelty that one human has towards another. Bimal Roy and Balraj Sahni together have marvelled in this scene.

Posting this heart-felt melody sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar in honor of his birth anniversary. Some gems shine so bright that they leave a mark even when they aren’t there. Such is Bimal Roy’s legacy.

The reason for me to pick this song are the followig two lines in it that really makes you think of what you want to make out of your life. And that is exactly what Bimal Roy has done...left a legacy worth remembering forever.


Apni Kahaani Chhod Ja, Kuchh To Nishaani Chhod Ja
Kaun Kahe Is Aur Tu Phir Aaye Na Aaye

Leave A Story Behind, Some Legacy Of Your Own
What Are Odds That You Cross The Same Path Again.



Lyrics in Romanized Hindi:

Bhai Re
Ganga Aur Jamuna Ki Gahari Hai Dhaar, Aage Ya Pichhe Sabko Jaana Hai Paar
Dharati Kahe Pukaar Ke, Beej Bichha Le Pyaar Ke
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay
Apni Kahaani Chhod Ja, Kuchh To Nishaani Chhod Ja
Kaun Kahe Is Aur Tu Phir Aaye Na Aaye
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay

Teri Raah Me Kaliyo Ne Naina Bichhaaye, Daali-Daali Koyal Kaali Tere Geet Gaaye
Tere Geet Gaaye
Apni Kahaani Chhod Ja, Kuchh To Nishaani Chhod Ja
Kaun Kahe Is Aur Tu Phir Aaye Na Aaye
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay
Ho Bhaai Re

Neela Ambar Muskaaye, Har Saans Taraane Gaaye
Haay Tera Dil Kyo Murajhaye, Ho Ho Ho
Mann Ki Banshi Pe Tu Bhi, Koi Dhun Baja Le Bhaai
Tu Bhi Muskura Le
Mann Ki Banshi Pe Tu Bhi, Koi Dhun Baja Le Bhaai
Tu Bhi Muskura Le
Apni Kahaani Chhod Ja, Kuchh To Nishaani Chhod Ja
Kaun Kahe Is Aur Tu Phir Aaye Na Aaye
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay
Ho Bhaai Re, Ho Bhaai Re
Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay, Mausam Beeta Jaay
