Magic In Tunes: 10/17/2015 - Hey Shubhaarambh Ho Shubhaarambh Mangal Bela Aayi

One of the events that occur during Navratri time is Garba and Dandya Night. This is a traditional dance performed around the statue or portrait of Goddess Shakti with a lamp lit in front of it. It’s a form of dance that orginated in the state of Gujarat but has been carried through other states of India as well other countries where Indians have migrated and settled. And some of the dances are done with the Dandya sticks which is another form of the same dance. (More on the dance here)

I have tried going to this event every year but never really danced. This year however I got to participate and dance to my fill not once but twice. Its such a thrilling feeling that one can only experience. Aptly the Hindi and other Indian language movies have cashed on this event in more than one movie, depicting it as colorful as they can possible do along with beautiful music that makes you want to dance along.

This one that I am sharing is titled Shubhaarambh ( = A New Beginning) from the 2013 hit Hinidi film Kai Po Che ( = A common victory shout in Gujarati language while flying kites when cuts the other's kite) and Sung by Shruti Pathak and Divya Kumar. Music was composed by Amit Trivedi and Lyrics penned by Swanand Kirkire and Shruti Pathak. This is another movie that deserves its own post.




Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Gujarati:

Rangi Par Ud Aavee, Khushiyon Sang Laavee; Harkhaye Haiyo Haaye.. Haaye
Aasha Ni Kirano Bikhraaye Umange Vi Chhalkaaye Man Halvethi Gungunaaye
Haaye, Haaye, Haaye, Haaye..

Hey Shubhaarambh Ho Shubhaarambh Mangal Bela Aayi
Sapnon Ki Dehri Pe  Dil Ki Baaji Re Shehnai Shehnai Shehnai

Khwaabon Ke Beej Kachchi Zameen Pe Humko Bona Hai
Aasha Ke Moti Saanson Ki Mala Hume Pirona Hai
Apna Bojha Mil Ke Saathi Humko Dhona Hai
Shehnai, Shehnai, Shehnai..

Raas Racheelo Saaj Sajeelo Shubh Ghadi Chhe Aavyee
Aaja Aaja Tamtamaata Shamna Ojhe Laavee Oh.. Laavee
Ho Ho Ho Laavee

Rangi Par Ud Aavee Khushiyon Sang Laavee Harkhaye Haiyo Haaye Haaye
Rangi Par Ud Aavee Khushiyon Sang Laavee Harkhaye Haiyo Haaye Haaye Haaye

Haan Maza Hai Zindagi Nasha Hai Zindagi Dheere Dheere Chadhegi Ho
Duaa De Zindagi, Bata De Zindagi Baat Apni Banegi Ho

Khwaabon Ke Beej Kachchi Zameen Pe Humko Bona Hai
Aasha Ke Moti Saanson Ki Mala Hume Pirona Hai
Apna Bojha Mil Ke Saathi Humko Dhona Hai
Shehnai, Shehnai, Shehnai..

(Hey Rang Lo Mhara Naa... Aye Thayi Thayi)

Hey Shubhaarambh Ho Shubhaarambh Mangal Bela Aayi
Sapno Ki Dehri Par Dil Ki Baaji Re Shehnai Shehnai
Raas Racheelo Saaj Sajeelo Shubh Ghadi Chhe Aavee
Aaja Aaja Tamtamata Shamna Ojhe Laavee O Laavyee...
