Pandit DV Paluskar

Pandit DV Paluskar (1921-55) was a renowned Hindusthani (i.e. north Indian) classical singer, with a voice like flowing honey.

Paluskar also lent his voice to many bhajans, and thus served to immortalise these age-old devotional expressions.

Here is Tulsidas' Thumak Chalat Ramachandra, given melody to by Paluskar. It expresses the joy and love of Lord Rama's mother, Kausalya, for her little child.

thumak chalat raamachandra
thumak chalat raamachandra
baajat painjaniyaan

kilaki kilaki uthat dhaay girat bhuumi latapataay
dhaay maat god let dasharath kii raniyaan

aanchal raj ang jhaari vividh bhaanti so dulaari
tan man dhan vaari vaari kahat mridu bachaniyaan

vidrum se arun adhar bolat mukh madhur madhur
subhag naasikaa men chaaru latakat latakaniyaan

tulasiidaas ati anand dekh ke mukhaaravind
raghuvar chhabi ke samaan raghuvar chhabi baniyaan

Here's is Pandit DV Paluskar singing Jab Janakinath Sahay Karen, another song in praise of Lord Rama.

For Meena:
. जानकीनाथ सहाय करे जब, कौन बिगाड़ करे नर तेरो
. सूरज मंगल सोम भृगुसुत बुध अरु गुरु वरदायक तेरो
राहू केतु की नाहीं दम्यता संग शनीचर होत उचेरो
. दुष्ट दुशासन निबल द्रौपदी चीर उतार कु-मंतर फेरो
जाकी सहाय करे करुनानिधि बढ़ गए चीर के मान घनेरो

Here is a rough translation of the lyrics of Jab Janaki Nath, posted by others:

When Janaki's Lord (=Lord Rama) helps you, who can harm you?

The Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter (etc. other planets are listed) grant your boons. Rahu, Ketu, and Saturn (the baleful planets) are defeated and cannot oppress you.

Evil Duhshaasan tried to dishonor Draupadi, by disrobing her. The merciful Lord helped her, her robes and honor were endlessly extended.

It is difficult to translate poetic idioms, but this is the gist

I was looking for a Bhimsen Joshi rendering and chanced up on this awesome resource. I find I am unable to play the numbers when I click on a song on the list of 141 or so songs. Please look in to this. Thanks in advance. Srikanth.
