(LYRICS, MEANINGS & VIDEO) Surinder Kaur Ji has been considered as a great Punjabi singer only. But, she has sung many Hindi songs amazingly. This marvelous song has been composed by great Master Ghulam Haider and the touching lyrics by Harishchandra Akhtar for the movie Kaneez. My previous video on her song "Ek Nazar Yaad Hai" is on Madhubala and I have compiled this video on Nargis Ji. I hope you will welcome this video also.


Umeedon par Udasi Chha gai, kiya tum na aao gey,
(My hopes are waning, wouldn't you come ?)
Mere dil ki kali murjha gai, kiya tum na aao gey
The bud of my heart has withered, whether you are coming or not)

Baharain jan-fiza, bulbul ke nagmey, chandni raatain,
(The refreshing spring, the songs of nightingale, moonlit nights,
Har ek shae aany wali aa gai , kiya tum na aao gey
Everything has set in, wouldn't you come ?)

Umeedon par Udasi Chha gai, kiya tum na aao gey,

Tumhari deed hi maqsad raha ooooaa
To see you, was the only purpose..........
Tumhari deed hi maqsad raha, jinhi nigahoon ka,
To see you, was the only purpose of my eyes,
Woh chasm - e - mutezar pathra gai, kiya tum na aao gey
That waiting-eyes have become glassy, wouldn't you come ?)

Umeedon par Udasi Chha gai, kiya tum na aao gey,

Zra aao mera hal - e - preshaN dekhtey jaao,
(Please come and see my awful condition,
Meri faryad lab tak aa gai , kiya tum na aao gey
I am requesting you, wouldn't you come ?)

Umeedon par Udasi Chha gai, kiya tum na aao gey..................,

Master Ghulam Haider

A great name in music in the history of the subcontinent. One of his biggest achievements was the discovery of two of the most popular female singers the subcontinent has ever produced, Lata Mangeshkar and our own Madam Noor Jehan.

Master Ghulam Haider started his career in the 1930's and went on to achieve tremendous fame, popularity and respect in the times to come in the field of his choosing. His first film as a music composer, "Suvarg ki seehi" by Syed Imtiaz Ali Taj did not do well. Then came Punjabi film "Gul Bakaoli" by Seth Dilsukh M. Pancholi in 1938, It was a film in which a song "Shala Javanian Manein", by a ten year old Noor Jehan took Punjab y storm. But the film which could be named as being instrumental in shaping and lifting Master Ghulam Haider's careers was undoubtedly "Khazanchi". Its music changed the period of the Bengali musicians of Bombay and Calcutta. They were forced to adapt to the modern times after Khazanchi.

After some time Syed Shaukat Husaain Rizvi made "Khandaan" in which Madam Noor Jehan appeared as a heroine for the first time. In this film, Master Ghulam Haider's music reached new heights as almost all the songs created waves in the subcontinent. Songs like "Mere ammi ka raaj bhala", "Panchi urh ja", "Merey liye jahan mein" were on everybody's lips in those days.

And so, the success story continued. In time, he came to Lahore and started composing music for Pakistani films. Some of the films he composed music for included "Bheegi Palkein, Beqarar, Ghulam, Gulnaar" but times were changing. He faced one difficulty after another. Meanwhile he kept receiving offers from Bombay but refused to leave his hometown. Ultimately he felt ill and finally died in 1956. During his career, he composed songs, which will always be remembered by all.
