Juthika Roy (12 april 1920-5 february 2014) is a name that I became aware of sometime in the last decade when internet became a viable and a useful source of gaining and sharing information. But seeing that she mostly sang NFS and I was not interesting in NFS, I did not take any further interest in her songs at that time.

We in this blog try to discuss songs on the anniversaries of artists. Today (11 december 2013) is the first death anniversary of Pt Ravishankar (7 april 1920- 11 december 2012). So I decided to discuss a Hindi movie song involving him.

When I saw the lyrics of this song from “Jogan” (1950), I thought that this song was discussed long back, but when I checked the list of songs of “Jogan” (1950) appearing in the blog, this song was missing much to my surprise. Then I realised that the song that I was confusing it with was the song Ae ri main to prem deewaani mera dard na jaane koye from “Naubahaar” (1952).

In the 30s and 40s, two groups of female actor-singers emerged prominently. The first group excelled in both acting and singing. Barring a few exceptions, they confined to playback singing on themselves. This group consisted mainly of Khursheed, Kanan Devi, Noor Jahan and Suraiya. The second group though started their filmy career as actor-singer in a smaller way, later they concentrated mainly on playback singing. This group comprised mainly of Rajkumari, Amirbai Karnataki, and Zohrabai Ambalewaali.

January 28th is the birth day of playback singer Suman Kalyanpur. She is a living example of how the career of a talented singer can be marred by a close resemblance of the voice of the numero uno singer in the field, in her case Lata Mangeshkar. Naturally, film industry preferred the reigning queen rather than giving enough opportunity to Suman Kalyanpur to prove her worth. She was mostly used as a substitute for Lata Mangeshkar when the latter was not available for recording the songs. Alternatively, she would get the singing assignments in low budget films. In the circumstances, I thought that she would have utilised her spare time in recording many NFSs. I find that even in respect of NFSs, Suman Kalyanpur is lagging in numbers in comparison to other top playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh etc. Was she really interested in pursuing playback singing career ? She is known to be a very private and low profile person. Only those who were close to her could get to know her mind. It took Ameen Sayani more than 40 years to persuade her to give an interview for a radio programme. Subsequently, she has given a couple of interviews through which we have come across some more information about her singing career.

In my younger days, I disliked the traditional classical vocal music as I had no patience to listen to a couple of verses umpteen times with longish alaaps. I used to feel that the ‘progression’ in the vocal music was too slow for me to get interested in listening to such recitals. However, I liked the filmy and non-filmy songs based on classical ragas as those would get over in about 3 minutes. My taste on traditional classical vocal music changed when I bought a LP of Pandit D V Paluskar in early 70s mainly for 5 devotional songs contained in the one side, the other side being his full length vocal recital on raag Shri. This LP was a turning point for me and I started liking Hindustani classical music. I felt that he must be a great classical vocalist whose vocal music sounded great to my untrained ears.
