There is a non-film song by HemantK "paa kar bhi tumhen ham paa na

Hint: The Lata song isn't very oft-heard. But it's available on
youtube and on Surjit-ji's Website.
Though most of the rmimers are most used to Lata and her songs ..of
any type unlike myself - this is just a narrowed guess - the song in
question most likely be of 1953 or 54-film under the music of Hemant
Kumar or SDB...judging from the STYLE in the mukhda of the song.on YT

This doesn't seem 'identical' to the Hemant Kumar song. In fact, i
find the first line of Meri Dum Bhar Na Sautan Aankh Lagi from Samrat
(1954) to be closer to the HK song.
"Meri dam bhar na paapan" is indeed the song I had in mind. It's
available on Youtube at
I thought Jayraman-ji had almost nailed it when he said it was from a
54-film by HemantK or SDB, but then he got distracted:)
I find it interesting that Hemant recorded a song set to a tune that
he himself composed in 1954, a few years later, but the later MD is
credited as someone else (Tersem Lal).
Any info on Tersem Lal would be appreciated.
Thanks much Prithviraj Saheb for your kind words.
Firstly I must confess that I am not an expert of music.
I have no collection of music except my father's(that mainly
for copying and distribution)nor I have any book or magazine
or any other written or recorded material. I started seriously
listening film music in 1961 - to be exact in Feb.1961 when
I was 10+ years of age.
From then onwards for next at least 14 or 15 years I listenedto Radio Ceylon and AIR for about 10 to 12 hours a day.
I used to take notes and write lyrics of the songs which I
liked. So my memory of Film and non-film Hindi/Urdu music
is mostly based upon Radio's air waves that settled in the
grooves of my mind.
This song of Lata- meri dum bhar na sautan aankh....
I never heard before. But I have liked this very much. Lata's
voice is extremely fresh. As far non-film song of Hemantda,
to me it looks that he himself is the composer and he might
have credited to Tersem Lal. But to me he did get inspiration
from Naushad's song of film Jadoo(1951) voluntarily or may
There are three types of inspiration- Lifting(blatant), voluntary-
where a person likes some sur combination, hires that and
then weaves his own composition around that. The third is
involuntary where a composer makes a tune on some notes
which he likes when he heard those again and again.
Here I would like to point out a song of Khemchand Prakash
which provided inspiration to C.Ramchandra. Please let me
know in which type of inspiration you will place this song?
Here is the original:
And now here is CM's:
Now you will recall a song which has been very popular.
Just check how quickly you can recall that:
When I heard the first song 4-5 year back it took me perhaps
5 minutes or may be less to recall this :
