For the last couple of days after listening to “Do din ki Zindagi Mein” from Poonam (1952), composed by Shankar-Jaikishan, with Lata ji’s voice, I just could not figure out why it sounded familiar and yet, it was different.
Well, now I know why. Do you remember that song, “De di hamein aazaadi bina khadag bina dhaal, sabarmati ke sant tune kar diya kamaal, Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram” from “Jagriti” (1954) (MD: Hemant Kumar, lyrics Kavi Pradeep ji, playback Asha Bhosle)!
I’ve posted both here… the one above seems to be motivational with a life lesson, the other below, is filled with patriotic fervor and reverence for “Sabarmati ke Sant”. Check out both.
