बदल रही है जिंदगी (आज़ादी की राह पर -1948) Badal rahi hai zindagi(Azadi ki raah par-1948)

बदल रही है जिंदगी,  
बदल रही है जिंदगी  |

ये उजड़ी उजड़ी बस्तियां, ये लूट की निशानियाँ, 
ये अजनबी पे अजनबी के ज़ुल्म की कहानियाँ, 
अब इन दुखों के भार  निकल रही है जिंदगी, 
बदल रही है जिंदगी  ।

जमीन पे सरसराहटें, फलक पे थरथराहटें,
फिजां में गूँजतीं  है  एक नए जहां की आहटें
मचल रही है जिंदगी, संवर रही है जिंदगी 
बदल रही है जिंदगी  ।


[Composer  : G. D. Kapoor, Director : Lalit Chandra Mehta,  Producer : Hindustan Kala Mandir]

Note on Sahir :  I could not get the video or audio of this song, but lyrics were available in a  great website on work of Sahir :   www.sahir-ludhianvi.com. I picked it up from there.

This is the first movie of Sahir, in which he wrote four songs.
(1)        Badal rahi hai jindagi
(2)       Bhaarat jananii terii jai ho jai ho
(3)       Jaag uthaa  hai hindustaan
(4)     Mere charkhe men jeevan kaa raag sakhii

This movie has two more songs, but they are by other lyricists.  By the time (1948) the movie was completed and released, partition took place and Sahir’s work went unnoticed.  Sahir had to leave India to see his mother who had shifted to Lahore. Sahir stayed in Lahore for one and half year, but came back to India, when he heard that he might get arrested for the articles he wrote against Pakistan Government.

    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi


    Ye Ujdi Ujdi Bastiyaan
    Ye Loot Ki Nishaniyaan
    Ye Ujdi Ujdi Bastiyaan
    Ye Loot Ki Nishaniyaan
    Ye Ajnabi, Ye Ajnabi Ke
    Zulm Ki Kahaaniyaan
    Ye Ajnabi, Ye Ajnabi Ke
    Zulm Ki Kahaaniyaan
    Ab In Dukhon Ke Bhaar Se
    Ab In Dukhon Ke Bhaar Se
    Nikal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi

    Zameen Pe Sarsaraahaten
    Falak Pe Thartharahaten
    Zameen Pe Sarsaraahaten
    Falak Pe Thartharahaten
    Fizaan Mein Goonjti Hain
    Ek Naye Jahaan Ki Aahaten
    Fizaan Mein Goonjti Hain
    Ek Naye Jahaan Ki Aahaten
    Machal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Sanwar Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Sanwar Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Machal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Sanwar Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Machal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Machal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Sanwar Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
    Badal Rahi Hai Zindagi
