Daradiyo Na

from Basu Bhattacharya's Tumhara Kalloo (1975)

A folk song used in a bunch of Hindi songs but right now online I could find only one: Shabbir kumar song Jawani Ki Rail Kahin from Coolie (1983). Can't recall others. As for the original, online the Chutney version is the closest one can get.
