The rare, unheard antra of 'Zindagi Ki Na Tootey Larhi' from KRANTI (1981) - Rare Interesting Facts about Hindi Cinema by Bobby Sing

09 Sep, 2013 | Did You Know! / Articles on Music, Poetry and Life

Continuing the series of discovering the rare and unheard stanzas of memorable hits from the Golden Era of Hindi Cinema, here is one unrecorded antra written by Santosh Anand for the immortal song “Zindagi Ki Na Tootey Larhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi” sung by Lata Mangeshkar & Nitin Mukesh in the music direction of Laxmikant Pyarelal for Manoj Kumar’s cult project KRANTI (1981).
Here would like to mention that Sh. Santosh Anand is one of those lesser-discussed or under-rated lyricists/poets of Hindi Cinema who certainly deserved a lot more respect and appreciation than received, for his deep thoughtful poetry expressed in so simple words. Personally his works mean a lot to me as they have been a part of my personal journey too and I truly love this insightful, life teaching message from the lyricist, when he says,
“Kavita Kya Hai?
Jo Aapne Zindagi Mein Bhoga Hai……..Uska Anuvad Kavita Hai!”
As a close associate of visionary actor-writer-director Manoj Kumar, Santosh Anand gave us many meaningful gems in his film career and here is one of his unheard antra of a great song from film KRANTI.
Zindagi Ki Na Tootey Larhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi

Dekh Li Khwaab Ki Har Gali……….., Mere Dil Ko Mila Na Sukoon,
Tere Bin Kaise Jeevan Jiya…………., Tu Miley To Tujhi Se Kahun,
Ho……..Tujhi Se Kahun……………………….!
Bewajaah Umar Dhhoni Parhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi…..!
Zindagi Ki Na Tootey Larhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi”

Further, here is my humble attempt to contribute another stanza in the song as per its love theme and also as a heartfelt tribute to the divine blessed team of Bharat (Manoj Kumar) and Santosh Anand.
"Pyar Ruswa Hua Hai to Kya…………, Bewafa To Nahin Woh Hua,
Umar Jitni Bhi Hai Ab Meri……………, Lab Pe Tere Liye Hai Dua,
Ho…….. Rahegi Dua………………………….!
Yeh To Daulat Hai Sabse Barhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi…..!
Zindagi Ki Na Tootey Larhi, Pyar Kar Le Gharhi Do Gharhi”
