The Many Colors of Love #15 – The Tales of Love
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -
And so wrote the scribe

darr laagey duniya se balmaa ho
ulfat naa baney afsaana

In the matters of heart, when the blossoming emotions of love come to a head, then there comes a day when this precious secret of the lovers comes to be known. Sometimes it is known within a close circle, and sometimes it comes to the lips of all and sundry. A matter that was securely hidden in the two hearts now forms the grist for gossip mills. And thus are born the tales of love.

Sometimes these tales of love are very local to a neighborhood, and at other times these tales capture the attention of a much wider audience. I remember as a child, one would come across gossip and rumors – such and such boy is seeing that such and such girl. Sometimes that would be an episode at school, and the gossip mills would be working full time during lunch breaks and the daily bus trips. There would be a sudden silence as soon as the boy or the girl in the rumor was seen to be around. Sometimes these rumors would die down quickly. And sometimes they would last for months or years, taking on the form of romancing sweethearts.

Sometimes that would be an episode in the neighborhood. As the kids would gather to play in the alley or in the park, if the rumors were floating, then they would definitely be discussed. All kinds of speculations would be aired, no matter that the parties involved may be much older than the bunch of kids discussing their lives.

Sometimes these matter would be serious enough that the discussions would get up to the level of seniors and parents. When we would inadvertently or on purpose, overhear such conversations, that would give us more reason to return to our group of playmates with added ‘cannon-fodder’, presented more authoritatively.

Sometimes these gossips and tales were laced with derision and mockery. And sometimes they would be expressed with sentiments of respect and sympathy.

Getting into teens and later years, and as the films became a more important part of lifestyle, and the minds grew mature enough to appreciate now the sentiments involved in such episodes, the tales of love took on a whole new dimension. Since most films always carry a thread of a girl-boy romance, in various settings and situations, these tales and gossips would come into a better focus. Although the all knowing elders would always comment that film is film, and what happens in a film does not happen in real life. But for the adolescent minds, the charm and the enthrallment of these tales of love – filmi or from real life – continued to increase.

Hidden beneath the interest in these tales of romance was an everlasting notion that someday, the self would also be entangled into such an affair, and there would be gossip and tales in which the self would figure prominently. I dare say that over the years, I have been a witness and a participant on both sides of the fence. And when the experience became personal, it is only then that one would comprehend the actual sentimental value and the emotional fall out of being part of such stories of love. Why is it that the hearts involved in the matter, are afraid that their matter will be known? Why is it that the people around who come to know these stories, react in the ways they do? Sometimes the young hearts will be in despair and depression. Other times they will be defiant and daring. They would keep the secret inside and simply weather the emotional storms privately. Or at times they would not mind anyone knowing and talking about them.

And why is it that poets and writers of all ilk and colors have written about this ‘afsaana’ in a variety of ways that defy any enumeration, and across centuries and ages of written literature. There are stories that are famous for they became part of literary works and, in our age, have become part of films. There are stories that are legends now, that get into the cultural lexicon and everyone is aware of them, without being taught in schools. And as the years pass and the ages get added on, these tales of romance and infatuation keep springing up all around, as newer generations come of age and start to discover newer meanings into these emotions.

Aah, these lovely tales of love. There is a matter of experience that one needs to endure, to understand what makes these hearts tick, and what makes the time and place inconsequential. It is all there in these tales.

For this special emotion and this special write up, is a song so very special, that I am sure many a heart would perk up as they listen to this long lost friend. This lovely and enchanting song has been sitting far away from attention, for oh so long now. Blessed were the days of radio when these gems would be aired frequently. But over the decades, these fabulous gems have become obscure, covered with dust of passing years, slowly taking on the mantle of rarities. A huge favorite of mine, I was dismayed that this song has not yet made appearance online anywhere.

The pedigree of is this precious treasure is undefined, as it belongs to a film that was never completed or released. Sometimes in the 1960s, a production banner named Seven Eight Six Films, Bombay launched this film called ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’. And then, it seems, that the project simply went into oblivion. No other details are available for this film. Except of course the music. Thankfully, the music was recorded and released on 78 rpm records. Outside of that, I have not been able to locate any other information about this film.

The songs recorded are a set of 5 absolutely fabulous gems that have been created by the team of Aziz Qaisi as the songwriter and Iqbal Qureshi as the music director. The musical quality of these songs is of the highest category that one can imagine. And hence the surprise that these songs are not available for being heard. I posted one song from this film earlier in this series – “Mere Jahaan Mein Tum Pyaar Le Ke Aaye” . Today, I present the song that can also be termed as the title song of the film. It is a long, almost six minutes duration, of wonderful singing by Krishna Kalle. In my books, this is probably the best song rendered by her.

The words of this song are simply exquisite. Truly the stuff that the tales of love are made of.

nain uthe
aur nain miley
ik duniya hum ne basaa li

The eyes, they rose up
The glances met
And a whole new world got created

Goodness, what an expression. In these two lines the poet has captured all the burgeoning emotions and more, that arise within, when the glances meet, with someone with whom lies the destiny of love together.

The music and he melody is marvelous. Listen to the swiftly paced prominent sound of tabla that plays all through the song, and the interludes of sitar and sarod, that capture the strumming strings of heart. And listen to the voice of Krishna Kalle – never been so full of passion.

Oh listen, listen and listen to it again.

And enjoy.

shamma jali to jalaa parwaana
pyaar banaa afsaana

As burns the flame in the heart
So does burn the insistent moth
Singed with the excitement of attraction
Thus is how
The tale of love comes to be

jalwaa dhoondh rahe the kab se, pyaase nain sawaali
nain uthe aur nain miley, ik duniya hum ne basaa li
ab to yahi duniya hai apni, saans ka aana jaana
pyaar banaa afsaana

It seems as if forever
The longing in eyes and minds
Searched for that one image
That would stir the heart
And when they did
The eyes, they rose up
The glances met
And a whole new world got created
This new world now
Is all that is consequential in life
Just as the life breath is
Thus is how
The tale of love comes to be

shabnam hai ya angaara hai, sach hai ya koi sapna
aankh khule to koi naa jaane, kya anjaam ho apna
mera naam hai dard bhara dil, us ka naam zamaana
pyaar banaa afsaana

Is it the cool solace of the midnight dew
Or is it the fiery embers that incite, and then burn
Is it what the truth of life is
Or is it just a dream, so ever wishful
Wondering what the outcome would be
When the eyes open and the dream ends
No one knows
All I know of this state is
That I am a heart full of pain
And an unkind thing that is this world
Confronts me
Thus is how
The tale of love comes to be

chaand utar aaya seene mein, tan mann bheega ras mein
main duniya ke bas mein hoon aur, duniya us ke bas mein
main hoon pyaar ki deewaani aur wo mera deewaana
pyaar banaa afsaana

It felt as if the moon descended into me
And my being soaked with flowing contentment
I am restrained, being of this world and in this world
But this world, I know, is under His spell
I am crazy for love
And I know, he is crazy for me
Thus is how
The tale of love comes to be

dard ki andhi raat hai duniya, dil ki shammaa jalaaye
pyaar bhi paaya hum ne jaise, mil ke bichhudte saaye
sau haathon mein dil hai jaise, dard suney paimaana
pyaar banaa afsaana

Tis a dreadful dark night of agony
This world, it is
Only the light from the burning heart
Shows the way
I found love
But alas, it was to be
Like two shadows crossing paths in the night
And then breaking away again
Like a hundred, holding the heart in hands
It is the goblet only
That has ears to listen
The heart’s cry of pain
Thus is how
The tale of love comes to be

शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

जल्वा ढूंढ रहे थे कबसे
प्यासे नैन सवाली
नैन उठे
और नैन मिले
इक दुनिया हमने बसा ली
अब तो यही दुनिया है अपनी
सांस का आना जाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

शबनम है या
अंगारा है
सच है या कोई सपना
आँख खुले तो
कोई ना जाने
क्या अंजाम हो अपना
मेरा नाम है
दर्द भरा दिल
उसका नाम ज़माना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

चाँद उतर आया सीने में
तन मन भीगा रस में
मैं दुनिया के
बस में हूँ और
दुनिया उसके बस में
मैं हूँ प्यार की दीवानी और
वो मेरा दीवाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

दर्द की अंधी
रात है दुनिया
दिल की शम्मा जलाए
प्यार भी पाया
हमने जैसे
मिल के बिछुड़ते साये
सौ हाथों में
दिल है जैसे
दर्द सुने पैमाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

शम्मा जली तो
शम्मा जली तो
शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
शम्मा जली तो
जला परवाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना
बना अफसाना
प्यार बना अफसाना

Congratulations on 700th post. And thank you very much for the songs and the lyrical posts.

Sudhir ji, Pl.accept my heartiest greetings on this gigantic achievement-700 posts!!.
I can well imagine how difficult it would have been for any one else in your place to write in a style so distinct and different but perfect with lucid details. I take this opportunity of thanking you for the subject song also which used to be my favorite in 1960s(Radio days) but then got buried in debris of time.I also tried to look for this online but with no success. . I have special regards for you for successfully unlocking two gems from safe vault of my memory whose key had been lost/misplaced by vagaries of Time.These gems were-Chali jaye re jeewan ki gari and Mera pyar tadapta hai. My good wishes and blessings.

Sudhirji,
What an inning!!! No words can express your contribution to this blog for all Hindi music lovers. If I compile these 700 posts, I am sure it will be as equal as some of the encyclopedias or bulletins. Thanks for the time you have devoted and shared the information with all.
Lots of love
Khyati

Awesome song and wonderful singer by Krishna Kalle …. Many Unreleased movies had had nice songs like Film – Begunah – song was “ae Pyase dil Bejubah Tuj ko le jaau kaha ? Many UR films songs were famous …well written Sudhir Saab../… Shekhar Vaishnav

Congrats Sudhirji! Stupendous achievement and what a song you have chosen!! Simply fabulous…. Thank you……………

Dear Friends All,

Many many heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your affectionate comments of appreciation, and words of praise that probably are more than what I may deserve. What some of you have referred to as ‘stupendous achievement’ would not have been possible without such continous words of support and encouragement from all of you.

Khyati Behn, Nahm ji, Aparana ji,
Thanks a ton for your messages. They mean a lot to me.

Arun ji,
Thanks for you ‘700’ congratulations. I was not thinking of it, but now I am, when you pointed towards the 1000 individual milestone. I am surely going to try working harder for it.

Nitin ji,
I am glad that the choice of song turns out to be a favorite for you. Like some other talented singers in that era, Krishna ji was also unable to break into the popular stream.

Avinash ji, Mahesh ji,
Thanks for your messages. You are always there promptly, with your appreciation and support.

Prakash ji,
Your messages always leave me floored. I remember you message regarding wishing to be in the same city as me. :) Always endearing to the heart. Thanks.

Shekhar Vaishnav ji,
Yes, the unreleased films are such a hidden treasure. I am always trying to showcase more and more of such unheard or long lost gems. Thanks for your message.

Rakesh ji,
Thanks for your wonderful words. It is always such a pleasure to come face to face with such wonderful songs that have become obscure over decades. They keep ringing in the ears and inside the brain. And when we are able to get hold of them again, it is such eureka moment.

And last but not the least, rather the most important, I believe we owe a ton of gratitude for Atul ji, for pulling together and sustaining this blog. This blog has made it possible for all us friends to come together, even though we are located in different parts of the country and the world. This opportunity to share and enjoy – is all possible becuase of him.

Cheers and best regards to all,
Sudhir

Sudhir ji, wish let us all go on like this-you,Atul ji,AK ji,this blog and all music lovers……Chali Jaye Re Jeewan Ki Gadi…………and enjoy many more hidden gems in the days to come.
