5 Lata Mangeshkar songs that sing about healing

1. ‘Jago Mohan Pyare’ (Jagte Raho): In The Raj Kapoor produced experimental film about one anonymous man’s quest to quench his thirst one desperate dark and lonely night, RK needed a song for the climax where the thirsty man is finally given water by a kind lady. In a chat some time ago Lataji recalled, “It was a very special song. Nargisji was to sing it on screen. This is the last time she appeared in a film of Raj Saab. Iss gaaane mein bahot shakti aur gehrayee hai. Raj Saab believed it could heal the soul. Salidada (Chowdhary) composition was a tough one. I always suspected he used to deliberately put hurdles in a composition to challenge me.”

2. ‘Aaja Piya Tohe Pyar Doon’ (Baharon Ke Sapne): Majrooh Sultanpuri Saab’s lyrics Kis liye tu itna udhas sookhe sookhe honth ankhiyon mein pyaas….Hone de re jo ye julmi hai, path tere gaaon ke. Palkon se chun daloongi main, Kaante teri raahon ke…are so steeped in a feeling of protectiveness. Asha Parekh who lip-synced the song says, “This is one of my most favourite songs that I’ve sung on screen. Bahot hi khubsoorat likha hai. And R D Burman has invested the words with such a beautiful tune. As for Latabai’s singing her voice has the tenderness that can move mountains and heal broken hearts. So many times when my I am dep I’ve turned to this song for comfort.”

3. ‘Lag Jaa Gale Se’ (Woh Kaun Thi?): One of Lataji’s most popular songs, an evergreen with an ever-renewable therapeutic value. Said Lataji, “I don’t know what it about this song. So many people have told me it makes them feel better on a despondent day. All I can say is, if my songs have helped people to smile, then I’ve had a successful life.”

4. ‘Jiss Path Pe Chala Uss Path Pe Mujhe Aanchal Toh Bichane De’ (Yaadgaar): Manoj Kumar remembers this Yaadgaarsong very well. “I had a hit song ‘Ek Tara Bole’by Mahendra Kapoor. But we needed a solo for the great Nutan. This was my one and only film with her. We needed an outstanding song where the heroine tries to boost the hero’s morale. Indeevar’s lyrics were magical. Kalyanji-Anandji came up with an outstanding composition .And who but Lataji to sing this song about healing? Unki awaaz sun ke toh jung ruk jaye (her voice can stops wars).”

5. ‘Chhod He Saari Duniya Kisike Liye Yeh Munaasib Nahin Aadmi Ke Liye’ (Saraswatichandra): The ultimate song about healing, it is counted among the best written songs of Hindi cinema: Kitni hasrat se takti hai kaliyaan tumhe in bahaaron ko phirse bulaate nahin/Ek duniya ujad hee gayi hai toh kya doosra tum jahan kyon basaate nahin. Said Lataji, “Yeh gaana bahot hi lokpriya hai. Kitno ne mujhe kaha ki iss gaane se unhe prerna mili hai (this song is very popular. So many have told me that this song has given them encouragement).” Lataji credits the words of the haunting melody for its abiding popularity. “Indeevarji ne kamaal ke shabd likhe hain.”
