mile sur mera tumhara...

I have been hearing this song on national integrity since my childhood.This one,which used to be a pain at that point of time when it used to be telecased every 5 mins. in Doordarshan, has now been etched in my heart for ever. Infact,I used to claim i knew most of the indian languages and used to sing this song for the skeptics (oh! how trivial!).I never bothered to know what those lyrics meant,but had byhearted it (including the interlude music) which a bit of my own lyrics!. So, here is the original song lyrics which those celebrities sung on screen.
Mile sur mera tumharaa, Thoo sur bane hamaraa.... sur kee nadhiyaan har disha se behkee saagar mein milee. Baadalon ka roop leiker bharse halke halke... Mile sur mera tumharaa.. thoo... sur bane hamaara.. Mile sur mera tumhara...
Chaain taraj tahin nyay tarajek but baniye saayen taraj
Tera sur mile mere sur de naalmilke bane ek nava surtaal
Mile sur mera tumharaa....tho sur bane hamaara..
Mohnja sur tohi desa pyara mile jadein geet ashaanjo madhur tarano bane tadein
Sur ka dariya bahte saagar me mile badlaan da roop leike barasan holle haule
Isaindhal namm iruvarin suramum namadhakum.. Dhisai veru aanalum aazi ser aarugal Mugilai mazaiyai pozivadu pol isai ...Namm isssaiiii.... Thik thakida thathikakidA....thaka thimi thaka junu
Nanna dhwanige ninna dhwani-ya, seridante namma dhwaniya..
Naa swaramu nee swaramu sangammamai, mana swaram ga avatarinchey
Ende swaramum ningalude swaramum otthucheiyum Namudeya swaramai....
Tomaar shoor moder shoor srishti koroor koi ekshoor[2]...
Sriishti karoon woi katha
Toma mora swarer milan srishti kare chalbochatano
Male sur jo taro maro, bane aapno sur niralo
Majhya tumchya julta tara madhur suranchya barasti dhara
Sur ki nadiya har disha se behke saagar mein mile...
Baadlo ka roop leke barse halke halke..
Oh...Mile sur mera tumhara tho....sur bane hamara...
Mile Sur mera tumharatho sur bane hamara tho sur bane hamaratho sur bane hamara

I love this song! Lata Mangeshkar's voice is real haunting!

In the few languages I know (which I picked up much later in life), the lyrics indeed make sense as I read it here. Good job!

I used to love the picturization also. The elephants, the snake-like train, BigB, Jeetu, Mithunda, Kamal, BalMuralKrishna, Tanuja. I think I shud search the video! :)

infact, sometime back i did search for the original video of tis with no luck. everything directed me to tat video made my MIT studnts.
but i dont think anyone can recreate the magic of the original!

Yeah, this is absolutely brilliant. However, I find the song set to desh (baje sargam har tarf se) even more enchanting.

hi sai
yeah ,baje sagram was better in the sense tat it had better lyrical beauty. but mile sur was more catchy coz of the presense of all those celebrities.may be tats y it sticks in my mind more than baje sargam
