Favorites

“Gaana woh accha, jo zindagi ke kaam aaye”

Anand Bakshi’s favorite songs written by him

He had made a hand-written list of his own favorites from the many he wrote. However, he would add: “I cannot choose my Favorite songs. My Favorite songs are the one liked by the masses. Their taste, choice, decision, and acceptance is the ultimate.”

However, these are songs he liked to sing when people requested him to sing his songs:

Corps of Signals song.

CORPS SONG

Main ik Hindustani bas, yeh hai meri pehechan

Jaan hai sabse pyari, Jaan se pyaara Hindustan.

1   Mere Mann mein bheti Ganga

     Mere sar pe ude Tiranga.

     Is paawan Dharti ko chume jhuk kar Aasmaan.

Main ik Hindustani bas, yeh hai meri pehechan

Jaan hai sabse pyari, Jaan se pyaara Hindustan.

                 2   Hindu Muslim Sikh Isaai

                     Hum sab ik duje ke bhaie

                    Alag alag hai Naam hamare ek magar hai jaan.

Main ik Hindustani bas, yeh hai meri pehechan

Jaan hai sabse pyari, Jaan se pyaara Hindustan.

                3   Ye mat samjho main Darta hoon

                    Jung se main nafrat karta hoon.

                   Aa hi jae Aandhi, toh main ban jaoon Toofan.

                  4   Prem ka panchi Aman ka Raahi

                    Main ban jaoon ek Sipahi

                    Mera naam pukare, jab Rannbhoomi ka Maidaan.

                5   Yeh Na Socha Yeh Na Dekha

                     Mera Desh mujhe kya Dega?

                    Apna Desh agar mange, toh de doon Hans ke jaan.

                6   Is Dharti par janam liya hai

                 Is Dharti KO Wachan diya hai

                    Is Dharti par hans ke Main ho jaoonga Qurbaan.

                7   Mere Jeewan ka yeh Sapna

                    Sare Jag mein Naam ho Apna

                   Sari Duniya mein unchi ho Mere desh ki shaan.

                  8   Jism se jaan agar nikle toh Mera

                       Naam Shaheedon me ho.

                       Aise jeene aise Marne mein hai Kitni Shaan.

                    9 Yeh dharti, Khushbu hi khushbu

                       Ye Ambar, Jaadu hi Jaadu

                       Inn Galiyon mein Khel ke Mera Bachpan hua jawan.

                  10 Rishiyon Sufiyon ki yeh Dharti, sari Duniya yaad hai karti

                      Apne Purkhon ke itihas pe, mujhko hai Abhiman.

                                                                                                      Anand Bakhshi.

In 2001 he was invited by the Corps of Signals, to write a ‘Corps song/poem’ to motivate our soldiers. They said it will be displayed at a “Bakshi Corner” in their existing Corps Museum, (of the Corps of Signals, Indian Army). Anand Bakshi wrote this poem: Confirmation of this fact we received via Letter no. 1059/01/ 26 dated 15 Jan 2001, from Colonel K. Bhattacharya, Commanding Officer, Corps of Signals, 1 Technical Training Regiment & 1 Signal Training Center, Jabalpur.

Rare Rare Rare verse …
dekha yeh ghar toh oonche,
mehlon ne sar jhukaye,
mujhe tum yaad aaye.
This verse was deleted from the film later. (TAQDEER) – LP/M Rafi
 
https://youtu.be/0wtBIrv0zAU
 
 

There are a few unreleased songs from released and unreleased films I have made available on his YouTube channel for listeners, as they belong to you all. Songs of Mahesh Bhat’s Dhun, Hiren Khera’s Hey Ram, Raj Kapoor’s Satyam Shivam Sundaram and others. The song from Dhun by Mehdi Hassan, Talat Aziz and one from Hey Ram by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi are two spiritual lyrics that are amongst his best writing, moreover, reflect the soul of the daddy we the family were privy to. I wish you look them up. Stay inspired.
