Later Lajjo comes to Mumbai to meet Govind, carrying her one year old son. She leaves a letter for him at his doorsteps, and want to leaves the child as well, is unable to go through it, and takes him along. They keep wandering, and feed off whatever comes their way, soon she dies leaving her son alone.

On waking up, he wanders even more and more into the city.

Quotes on the film :

Super Star Rajesh Khanna disclosed in an interview, "I consider “Aakhri Khat” a memorable film of my initial days. It was out and out a director's project and Chetan Anand, highly imaginative and sensitive director handled the film with expertise. I still clearly remember how cinematographer Jal Mistry shot the song sequence, “Ab Na Ja” on me and Indrani Mukherjee in five to six close ups also picturising the natural panorama of the Himalayas with rare aesthetics and perfection. My most challenging scene in “Aakhri Khat” was the last one where I am in a pensive mood in silence till I recognise my son, Bunty. Chetan Anand used to wake me up with late night phone calls so that my face had the ideal pathos oriented look."

Aur kuchh der thahar aur kuchh der na jaa

Raat baaqi hai abhi raat mein ras baaqi hai

Maharabaan husn teraa aur nikhar jaayegaa
Laakh zaalim hai zamaanaa magar itanaa bhi nahin
Too jo baahon mein rahe vaqt thahar jaayegaa

Lyrics :

Mere chandaa mere nanhe
Tujhe apane sine se kaise lagaaoon
Sooni godi mein kaise uthaaoon
Chhup gaye laadale aanchalon mein
Raat pariyon kaa paigaam laai
Kis tarah so gayaa too akele
Kis tarah bin mere nind aai
Mere chandaa ...

Tere sapane mein aa to gai main
Apani majabooriyaan kyaa bataaoon
Boond bhi tan mein baaqi nahin hai
Bhookh teri main kaise mithaaoon
Mere chandaa ...

Aadami bhi hai bhagavaan bhi hai
Phir bhi phirataa hai too besahaaraa
Kaun tujh ko gale se lagaaye
Pattharon kaa hai ye shahar saaraa
Mere chandaa ...

Door jaanaa hai nanhe musaafir
Raasate mein kahin thak na jaanaa
Thaamake meri aahon ki dori
Dhoond le too hi apanaa thikaanaa
Mere chandaa ...

Lyrics :

(rut jawan jawan, raat meherbaan
chhedo koyi daastaan) - (2)
rut jawan jawan

kuchh jhuki jhukli najar kahe, kuchh chhupa chhupa sa darr kahe
jo kahe woh raat bhar kahe, phir bhi na ho kuchh baya
rut jawan jawan raat meherbaan, chhedo koyi daastaan
rut jawan jawan

husn ki shikaayate baja, hai idhar tadap udhar gila
khaamoshi hai dadr ki sada, aankhein bani hai juba
rut jawan jawan raat meherbaan, chhedo koyi daastaan
rut jawan jawan

gam khushi khushi chhupa liya, dard ko bhi dil ban liya
jindagi ne aajama liya, tum toh na lo imtehaan
rut jawan jawan raat meherbaan, chhedo koyi daastaan
rut jawan jawan

The feeling of helplessness when you can see your friend is in pain and is not sharing it with you is very hard to bear. You feel like jumping off the cliff when you see yourself so powerless. Friendship demands trust and when the friend is not sharing with you it gives you an anti-trust feeling which in turn makes you feel small and unworthy. You try to convince yourself that there must be some reasons for the friend to not share the pain with you. Maybe he doesn’t want to make you go through the same agony that he is going through or maybe it’s not the right time and when the time is right he would open up his heart and soul to you to read and get all the information that you require. But what about the restlessness, the urge to take-away the pain, to offer the shoulder to cry-on, the willingness to help, the want to stand along with the friend and face the problem together? You feel worthless when you see the person going through the pain all alone and you are nothing more than a spectator. What kind of life is this? And what kind of relationship is this? Is this what friends are for? Are they supposed be there only when you want to laugh and have fun? Someone said long time back “when you laugh, the whole world laughs with you but when you cry, you cry alone”. Is this statement applicable in friendship also? No! It can’t be. It is for the general world. Friendship is a relationship that is beyond laughter. It’s the connection of souls, a kind of an ionic bond, a directly proportional equation; one gets affected with the same intensity and force as the other. This is what should happen, not that the one stays immune to the other person’s agony and suffering. Another question is why one wants to manage everything on his own. Why one has to act brave? Why one has to prove that he/she is made of steel when one is not? A human being requires support from other humans and that human is “FRIEND”. An individual you can rely on. A person who would never let you down. Another saying states “a friend in need is a friend indeed”. I may not be that friend of yours but there must be someone who can help in these circumstances. So please do not waste time. Identify that person. He is there waiting for you to give him the green signal so that he can bring you back to life, take away the sorrows and replace them with smiles and comfort. Get you enough relief and time to get yourself together, bring back the strength, the courage within you to face the world with your head high and taking it on the front. All a person needs is a little support to get started and when the engine starts running nothing can stop it from getting what one wants and that’s what I expect from my friends. To take the challenge and subdue it, not necessarily, for success but for their own satisfaction and I know they can do it because they are my friend and I have full faith in my friends that they are born to win

In old days the Indian Censor Board was in habit of damaging and even canabalising film songs very mercilessly . Even the movie makers used to deshape or damage their own songs . The result is that now most of the forums or sites contain the same damaged songs uploaded by the members . This is because most of the members use SOUND TRACKS of the movie . I produce below some examples ( 1 ) Take the song JAADUGAR SAINYA CHHOD MORI BAHINYA from the film NAGIN ( 1955 ) . The original song which was marketted in 78 rpm record contained the following lines ' Jaadugar sainya chhod mori bahinya ho gai aadhi raat ab ghar jaane do , feeka feeka kajara toota hua gajara kah dega saari baat ab ghar jaane do .' Where ever this song has now been uploaded , the second line is missing in the song . ( 2 ) The famous song of the film MANZIL ( 1960 ) sung by Manna Dey HATO KAAHE KO JHOOTHI BANAAO BATIYAN is another victim . The original , 78 rpm version of the song is like this : - ' Ban sanwar kar ghar se nikle sair ko jaane lage , jab mili mujhse nazar jhoothi qasam khaane lage , arey hato , kahe ko jhoothi banaao batiyan hato kahe ko jhoothi ,... Ye udi udi si rangat ye khule khule se gesu , teri subah kah rahi hai teri raat ka fasaana ,dekho ji kisi ka pyar hum se naa chhupaao , sab humen pata hai pyare , nain naa jhukaao , wahin jaao jahan pe bitaai ratiyan ,hato kahe ko ......' The song we find now starts with the line ' Gair ka saath hai ... ... ...' which is actually the third stanza . ( 3 ) The old movie TAXI DRIVER has a comedy song CHAAHE KOI KHUSH HO CHAAHE GAALIYAN HAZAR DE . The 78 rpm version has it's first stanza like this ' Pee ke dhaandhli karun to mujhko jail bhej do , soonghne men kya hai ye jawaab thaanedaar de ....' The song now available on the sites does not have the line - Soonghne men... ... ... . ( 4 ) The film DHOOL KA PHOOL has a beautiful duet JHUKTI GHATA GAATI HAWA SAPNE JAGAAE . It's 78 rpm record has the following lines ' Rawaan hai chhoti si kashti hawaaon ke rukh par , nadi ke saaz pe mallah geet gaata hai , tumhara jism har ek lahar ke jhakole se meri khuli hui baanhon men jhool jaata hai ...' . The song we find on these sites now has a changed line . ( 5 ) The famous qawwali of the film SADHNA -- AAJ KYON HUM SE PARADA HAI was also victimized . It's 78 rpm version contains the following lines ' Tera har rang humne dekha hai , tera har dhang humne dekha hai , haath khele hain teri zulfon se , aankh waaqif hai tere jalwon se .' The song uploaded on the sites has no lines like ' Haath khele hai.... ....' ( 6 ) One of the ever best songs of Lata mangeshkar comes from the film NAUBAHAAR --- ' UNKE BULAWE PE DOLE MERA DIL , JAAUN TO MUSHKIL NA JAAUN TO MUSHKIL . The 78 rpm version has a different prelude than what is available in the song we find on the sites. Not only this , unnecessary dialogues have been incorporated superimposed over the song , which destroys the unbeatable melody of this song .. The list of such songs is very long . What I want to prey to all the members of all the forums and sites that it is quite O.K. to upload sountracks but it would be far more in the interest of all other fellow members if the 78 rpm version is also uploaded along with the sound track , of cource if the 78 rpm record of that song is available to the uploading members . Thanks for sparing so much time to go through this blog .

Sunanda Patnaik - a renowned vocalist.
I like very much her commanding voice and great tarana
Can anybody send Raga Jaunpuri and Jogkauns
I heard it earlier and I lie it very much

Pt. D.V.Paluskar - another great artist
I attached Raga Shree , which I think one of the best recording of Panditjee
