During the early 50s, whenever there was any function, or a marriage or Upnayan ceremony in some relative’s place, I alongwith all my cousins used to have a field day. Such functions were usually held during summer vacations,so there was no tension of Exams or studies. There were about 15-16 of us, both boys and girls put together. One favourite game that we used to play was called ” Bhendya “. This was similar today’s ‘Antakshari ‘. In those times our game consisted of only Marathi songs-Bhavgeets or cinema songs.

” Bhaavgeet ” in Marathi is ” Sugam sangeet ” in Hindi. Bhaavgeets were a rage in Marathi homes during the late 40s, the entire 50s and early 60s,. Bhavgeets were played on Radio, its records were sold, they were published in monthly magazines and special books were brought out incorporating only Bhavgeets. In every Ganesh-mela, one programme of ‘Bhavgeet gaayan’ was a must. The Bhavgeet singers were very popular. Bhavgeet writers like N.G.(Naa.Gha.) Deshpande, G.D.Madgulkar, Yeswant, P. Savlaram, Balkavi etc were household names. Music for these bhavgeets was provided by leading music directors viz. Vasant Prabhu, Vasant Pawar, Vasant Desai, Sudhir Phadke, Shridhar Parsekar etc.

The Bhavgeet singers who were famous in those days were, Babanrao Nawdikar, Jyotsna Bhole, Lata, Asha, Manik Verma, Malti Pande, Saraswati Rane, Madhubala Jhaveri, Sudhir Phadke etc. Two names were very famous- Gajananrao Watwe and G.N.Joshi. Old timers will surely remember G N Joshi’s melodious and famous songs,’Nadi kinari Nadi kinari’, Dole hey zulmi gade’,’ranaranat geli hee sheel’,vasundhara hee sundara,Phar nako vaaku’ etc.

While G.N.Joshi was very popular in Maharashtra for his melodious Bhavgeets, he is highly respected in Hindi Classical music Circles for being the Pioneer in recording, preserving and making available a variety of Classical songs by the famous and well known singers of India in olden times. As a Recording Executive in H M V for 34 years, his contribution towards building a National Treasure of Vintage classical songs is Unique and Historical !

G N Joshi was a person of many talents. He was a trained classical singer, an Advocate in Bombay High court, a dedicated employee and a close friend of the luminaries of Indian classical music from 1938 to 1972. He was born in 1907 at Khamgaon in Maharashtra-his mother’s hometown. His education, however took place in Nagpur, where his father was practicing Law. With music loving father’s encouragement, he started learning classical music from ustads. For college education, he went to Poona’s Ferguson College. His music programmes and music mania hampered his studies and he was called to Nagpur again, joining Morris college. On 1-1-1931, he sang his first song on Bombay Radio. After securing a Law degree, he practiced in Bombay for 4 years. In 1934, he starred in and as “Sant Tulsidas” singing 7 songs in it. He also acted and sang in “Sewa Sadan”-34 and Chiraag-e-Husn-1935. He left Cinema world after this and went on a concert tour of East Africa in 1936.

Finally he joined H M V as a Recording Executive on 1-6-1938 and served there for the next 34 years very loyally, till he retired in 1972. He did a pioneering work of convincing and bringing many classical singers to HMV, recording their songs and preserving this heritage for India. Music lovers will forever be obliged to him for this. The singers were Amir Khan, Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Ustad Nasir Hussin Khan, Vinayakbuwa Patwardhan, Kumar Gandharva, Bhimsen Joshi, Pannalal Ghosh, Gajananrao Joshi Buwa, Gangubai Hangal, Kesarbai Kerkar, D V Paluskar, Ravishankar, K L Saigal, Begum Akhtar, Dinkar Amembal and many others of their ilk.

While in H M V ,he strived hard to get them their Royalties. When he had sung songs for HMV initially, he did not get any Royalty, so he knew that unless it is demanded they would not give it to them. in his book,”Down Melody Lane “-1984, he has sketched the profiles of many Music masters with whom he had special connection and who recorded songs in HMV. Prof. G.N.Joshi died on 22-9-1994.

Today we will enjoy G.N.Joshi’s DEBUT song from film ‘ Sant Tulsidas-1934″. This rare song was procured and uploaded on You Tube by our own Sudhir ji,on my request.I thank him wholeheartedly. Additionally,he has also given the English and Hindi lyrics too. This is an excellent example of Teamwork in this Blog. Mr. Nitin Shah also helps me with lyrics. Atul ji ofcourse,has always taken the responsibility of writing the lyrics and editing my articles,from day One itself. Thanks to all.

Film ‘Sant Tulsidas’-34 was a Digveer Cinetone movie, directed by N.G.Devhare. During the filming, Devhare fell sick and on instructions from his producer brother Gajananrao, the balance direction was completed by Gajanan Jahagirdar. He also wrote all 14 songs, and the screenplay. The original story and dialogues in Marathi were translated by Gajanan Jahagirdar, into Hindi.

The music was by Raghuveer Ramnathkar and pt.Suresh Babu Mane. Actually, Ramnathkar was only a Harmonium player and all the composing work was done by Suresh babu only. The 7 songs sung by G.N.Joshi however were composed by the singer himself. Some information about Sureshbabu Mane (1902-1953) is provided here.

His original name was Abdul Rahman. He was the eldest son of Ustad Abdul Kareem Khan and Tarabai Mane alias Tahirabibi. His pet name, in house, was ‘Babu’ and later ‘Baburao’ among his friends, and family members. His first teacher was father Kareem Khan and he also learnt music along with the first batch of disciples of the Arya Sangeet Vidyalaya founded by his parents. His voice, swarlagao and style were ditto to his father. He received talim till the age of sixteen years when his parents separated. He had by then became a teacher and concert singer. Like his father, his thumri was a speciality and listeners would name it as a ‘Maharashtri’ thumri. He was not only an expert vocalist but also could play harmonium, tabla, sarangi, tablatarang, kashtha tarang, jal tarang, shahanai, and piano.

After about 1920, Khansaheb became very busy with his many tasks and concert tours throughout India. As a result, he could not attend to the needs and music education of his children. Compounded with some houshold family problems, Suresh babu’s mother Tarabai decided to separate from him and left him in 1918. In the beginning, she stayed in Bombay for some time and then moved to Pune with her five children. She decided to change their musilm names. She was the daughter of Sardar Mane of Badoda state. She used Mane and Barodekar as the surnames. Barodekar was derived from her native place whereas Mane was her surname before marrying Khansaheb. Thus Abdul Rahman became Suresh (god of music notes) babu Mane. Out of her 5 children,Champakali became Heerabai Badodekar,Sakina or Chhotu tai became Saraswati Mane and after marriage Sarawati Rane. Tarabai opened up new music school ‘Nutan Sangeet Vidyalaya’ with Sureshbabu as a teacher along with other teachers and students. Sureshbabu also began to teach his sister Heerabai. However, they were all in their teens, and hence Tarabai persuaded and appointed uncle Abdul Wahid Khan as the teacher for children. Later on, with the help of Sawai Gandharva (Rambhau Kundgolkar) she opened up drama wing of Nutan Sangeet Vidyalaya. They staged several old and new drama and all brothers and sisters played roles. Sureshbabu and Heerabai also played roles in Hindi and Marathi films during 1930-40. Sureshbabu also composed music for films. (Sant Tulsidas-34 and Sach hai-39).

In 1926, with the efforts of Bai Sunderabai, HMV recorded two songs sung by Sureshbabu – ‘Balam mora naina tere rasile’ (Khamaj thumri) and Marathi pad ‘Ram Ayodhya nagari’. This record (HMV P 8756) was issued on black label and is very very rare. In 1930, Odeon record company released two songs of Mr. N. S. Phadke from his drama ‘Yugantar’ staged by Nutan Natak Company. In 1940, Columbia company released four songs – ‘Balam nainoka jalim’ (Dadra),
‘Bajuband khul khul ja’ (Bhairvi), ‘Piya tirchee najariya’ (Khamaj thumri), and ‘Dekho Jiya bechain’ (Tilang thumri). He has sung for Marathi film ‘Devayani’ and Hindi film ‘Sach Hai’. His voice from these two films is available on the gramophone records. One record featuring ‘Chandrama ha saticha’ song from Marathi drama ‘Khalvadhu’ written by Barrister Khasgiwale is also available. He 35used to broadcast from All India Radio frequently. Shuddha Kalyan recording of a radio program is a collector’s item.

Sureshbabu was not successful as a performer and he did not pursue this as a career. However, he was an excellent teacher. Some of his welknown disciples are: Heerabai Barodekar, Saraswati Mane/Rane, Prabha Atre, Vasantrao Deshpande, Menkabai Shirodkar, Vitthalrao Sardeshmukh, Bhimsen Joshi, Arvind Mangrulkar, Dattopant Deshpande, Madhu Kanetkar and Gajananrao Watve. Towards the end of his career he turned to mysticism and alchemy. This had very bad effect on his health. At the ripe age of just fifty years, this ‘Cursed Gandharva’ left this world, leaving behind over one hour recordings.

let us now enjoy the Debut song of Prof. G.N.Joshi, from the film ” Sant Tulsidas “-1934…..

As usual, this is an excellent and beautifully written article. I chose to comment on this article because you have covered two of my most admired personalities in the sphere of Hindustani classical music – G N Joshi and Suresh Babu Mane. You have done a yeoman’s service by unfolding information on some of the the singers and musicians who remained unknown to a larger section of the music lovers. These two are no exceptions.

G N Joshi was a crusader and one man army for preservation of Indian classical music. Today we have access to some of the rare recordings of Hindustani classical singers like Ustad Amir Khan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Kesarbai Kerkar and many more thanks to the persistence efforts of Shri G N Joshi (some time running after these stalwarts of classical singers for months). The lovers of Hindustani classical music would forever be grateful to Shri G N Joshi.

Pandit Sureshbabu Mane may not have a successful career in singing in concerts. But the list of his disciples should give an indication as to his important role as a teacher in continuity of Khirana gharana of Hindustani classical music. He also acted in a few Hindi and Marathi films. In ‘Amrit Manthan’ (1934), he sang for himself a ghazal ‘ aarzoo e dil ayaan karne ke bhi din aa gaye’.

Thanks a lot for covering in the article, two of my most admired artists.
