Monday, June 29th, 2020

Geeta ji was a lovely human being who knew how to balance house and work. She tried to give her best in whatever She did.

She sang a song in movie Abhimaan (1957), proclaiming the same, That She was the queen of the house. Enjoy this lovely song of hers composed by Anil Biswas ji. Lyrics of this sweet and lovely song are by Indivar.

Here are the lyrics thanks to Atul’s Song a Day Blog :-

hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
shaam kahoon main mangal taaraa
bhor suhaani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee

jab bartan chheden sargam
main bhooloon apna har gham
is aangan ke dar kone mein
mera mukhdaa chamke chamcham
yahi meri duniyaa
yahi meri duniyaa
main is duniyaa ki deewaani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee

laaj se dulhan
pyaar se patni
mamta se hai maataa
kitna sundar
kitna pyaaraa
ho
kitna sundar kitna pyaaraa
naari ka ye naataa
naari ka ye naataa

sadaa nayaa ek roop
sadaa nayaa ek roop
sadaa ek nayi kahaani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee

he mere Bhagwaan
he mere Bhagwaan
tumhaari dayaa na mujhse roothhe
sukh mein kabhi abhimaan na aaye
dukh mein dheer na chhoote
sukh mein kabhi abhimaan na aaye
dukh mein dheer na chhoote
tumhaari dayaa na mujhse roothhe

gire na aankhon se
gire na aankhon se aanchal
bas main wo paani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee
main ghar ki raani hoon jee

Enjoy listening to this lovely song picturised on the beautiful Chand Usmani.

Colouring Geeta-Guru Dutt’s Wedding Pictures

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

By Shaheed Haniff ji

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for the response to my efforts in colouring Geeta ji’s photos in my previous article here. I have spent a lot of time in doing the colouring and I am glad that many people have loved them.

Due to some past bad experiences, I did put my name in them but I was helpless as I had to ensure proper credit is given to me.

It is said in our culture that any lady looks her best on her wedding day. Few years back I had come across some Black and White photos of Geeta ji’s wedding with Guru Dutt where one can see her family and friends rejoicing their union. It was natural for me to wonder, How stunning Geeta ji would have looked on her big day. And when I wonder about such things, Its natural for me to want to try to colour those photos.

Today, I am sharing the results of my colouring various photos of the wedding of Geeta ji with Guru Dutt. I hope you will enjoy seeing them as much as I loved working on them. Many people are relatives whom I am not aware. If you can identify some, Do please leave your comments below. Thank you. Lots of Best Wishes to all of you from the Carribean!
