Raghuvar tumko



Composition in Hindi by Tulsidas. Sung by Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, the doyen of the Kirana gharana, for the film Ankahi (1985); music composed by Jaidev.

I was most fortunate to hear Pandit Bhimsen Joshi singing this, at the Dover Lane Music Conference in Januyary 1985; he announced that he had just completed recording this for the film Ankahi.

raghuvar tum ko meri laaj
sadaa sadaa main sharan tihaari tumho garib nivaaj
raghuvar tum ho tumho garib nivaaj
raghuvar tum ko meri laaj

patit udhaaran virad tiharo sravanana suni aavaaj
hun to patita puratan kahiye paar utaaro jahaaj
raghuvar paar utaaro jahaaj
raghuvar tum ko meri laaj

agha khandan dukha bhanjan jan ke yahi tihaaro kaaj
raghuvar yahi tihaaro kaaj
tulsidas par kirapaa kijae bhakti daan dehu aaj
raghuvar tum ko meri laaj

Many thanks dear Riya for the link. I love this song! I was at the Dover lane Music Conference in Calcutta in January 1985, and one of the favourites of the audience and an essential part of the DLMC was Pt Bhimsen. He sand this song and said that he had just finished recording it the previous day, for the film Ankahi.
