Saawan Songs: Saawan Aawan Kah Gaye

The word saawan appears in today's song only once, but it is such a sweet number that I am tempted to include it in the ongoing theme. It is from "Kanhaiya" (1959), a family drama starring Raj Kapoor and Nutan. It tells the story of a village woman who is devoted to Lord Krishna, but the Kanhaiya in her life happens to be a good-for-nothing drunkard. Shankar Jaikishan have composed wonderful music for this film. Other songs are Ruk jaa o jaanewaali ruk ja, Ni baliye rut hai bahaar ki, O mere saanware salone piya, O Kanhaiya O Kanhaiya aaj aana khwaab mein, Kahaan hai kahaan hai Kanhaiya, Mujhe tumse kuchh bhee na chahiye and Yaad aayi aadhi raat ko.

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Shailendra
Music: Shankar Jaikishan
