Posts like this come really once in a while. I would like to call them million dollar posts. Or rather ‘laakh rupaye ki baat (post)’ – because ‘Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindusatni’. :) :)

Congratulations to all fellow band-wagoneers and welcome to the next century milestone. We are Ten Thousand and Two Hundredth post today. And the march continues. Generally, when we come to century posts, we have celebrations connected to it. Almost always, we have at least one anniversary that we connect with a century post, or we have a certain artist also complete a century or a multi century individual milestone along with the blog century milestone. Occasionally we have a double celebration connected together, which actually makes three milestones – the blog century post, and two other important celebrations – combinations of artist anniversaries and / or artist century posts.

The special that we have today is a more rare occurrence – blog century milestone plus three other milestones. I tried to search for other examples of similar dimensions, and can readily recall only one other such combination. On 12th February last year, when the blog clocked the 7500th song, we had a special that included century milestones for three artists together. The song is “Tum Bansi Ho Main Taan” (http://atulsongaday.me/2013/02/12/tum-bansi-ho-main-taan/) from the film ‘Radha Krishna’ (1954). I request Atul ji and other readers to identify whether any more such quadruple celebration posts have happened in the past. The artists that clocked the century milestones together in the 7500th post are Lata ji (then at 2200 songs), Geeta ji (then at 400 songs) and Sachin Da (also at 400 songs at that point). So two singers and a music director.

What we have today is another interesting combination of three artists who are reaching the grand centuries of individual presence on the blog. And oh, so very very interesting that two of the artists from the 7500th song are also present in the celebration of the 10,200th song today. The honor roll of the artists for today’s celebration is Lata ji, Sachin Da and Rajinder Krishan – a balanced mix of singer, music director and lyricist. Lata ji is reaching her 2700 song to be published here. Rajinder Krishan breaches the 800 mark and Sachin Da arrives at the 500th song to be showcased here on the blog.

The reason I call such occasions as ‘Laakh Rupyae Ki Post’, is because it really is a combination of many unpredictable variables that can make it happen. In general, each of the artists is progressing at their own pace, as and when their songs get posted. Sometimes we see an acceleration by design, but that is only because either their anniversary is due, and / or their individual century milestone is approaching. Making it happen by design can be done for maybe one artist at a time. It is sheer coincidence when we may find two artists approaching their individual milestones and then Atul ji may try to coincide the celebrations. Such coincidences are rare.

But rarer still is the possibility that three artists will be approaching their individual milestones. Such occurrences are a horizon beyond coincidence. They sound more like quirks of improbability, converging into an event. And then getting coupled to the blog century marker – that is one more dimension variable that further complicates the equation. Ah, but the kicker is still to come.

For all these celebrations to come together, there is the much bigger improbability at work. And that also has two further dimensions. One – that the artist that we are trying to put together into a single post, well, they should have worked together, to make it into a single post, that means – one song. Now this is the real clincher. With so many artists working together to have created so many thousands of songs, one would simply expect many of them to have worked together for creating music. That is the general expectation. But I tell you, the actual state of affairs is not so straightforward. Two artists – well, one can still expect to see a good sizeable body of work done together. Add one more artist to the list. And suddenly the number of songs available from them having worked together plummets down by orders of magnitude.

Take the example for today. Lata ji, Rajinder Krishan, Sachin Da – all three very prolific artists with really big size contributions to the world of Hindi film song. But I was really stumped to find that Rajinder Krishan and Sachin Da have worked together just in five films – four of which came in 1950-51 and the fifth came in 1957. With so much work done by both these stalwarts over a contemporaneous period of almost three and a half decades, suddenly we find ourselves working with a very limited portfolio of songs. Add the name of Lata ji to this mix, and that further reduces the number of options we have for ferreting out a song for special celebrations.

And now to add the final dimension of complexity to this whole affair. The song should be unpublished on the blog. Wo, now we are really fishing for needles in haystack. With such a large number of songs now posted, this exercise becomes even more limiting. Of course, as we are merrily going along with posts day in and day out, we are not really bothering to hold back songs for special occasions like these combinatorial celebrations. And when the quirks of improbability bring us to this juncture, we find ourselves really scrambling to get to a good song worthy of the celebration. Putting all these permutations and combinations together, it is really a challenging task to be able to do a post such as this. I remember when I was preparing for the 7500th post. Having pored through pages and pages of Geet Kosh details, I was really amazed to find that Sachin Da, Lata ji and Geeta ji are featured together in just one songs across all their careers. And being blessed for small mercies, the song was not yet published on the blog. (I base this on the information that is currently available in the print version of the Geet Kosh. There may be missing information or corrected information that may change this result.)

And so, being blessed for small mercies – :) :) – this ocean of Hindi film songs still holds a gem or two, for all occasions.

This song that I present for this celebration today, bringing together these three stalwart artists, comes from the 1957 film ‘Miss India’. A song sung by a young damsel, who has just lost her heart in love, is asking of the morning breeze whether it knows how her heart was taken away. A lovely gem of a song coming from a not totally unfamiliar film. A very pleasant listen – a soft melody that makes one get a feel of the early morning breeze. Depend on Sachin Da to add in some folk elements into the construction of the melody. I could locate only the audio of this song, but my intuition is that this song would have been performed by Nargis on screen.

And so, the bandwagon marches on, continuing to discover lost and unheard gems. Ten thousand two hundred songs – or as Raja ji would put it – ‘Ten time Ten time Ten times Ten plus Two times Ten times Ten’. My, my, we are into some very impressive numbers league now.

Listen and enjoy.

We in this blog often come across milestones. The most common milestone is century of songs which occurs after every one hundred songs and so far we have had 101 such centuries.

When I was growing up in late 1960s and the whole of 1970s, I was familiar with the then current generation singers like Kishore Kumar, Lata, Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh etc. My exposure to old generation singers was initially through the “puraani filmon ke geet” programme of Radio Ceylon (later renamed SLBC) from 7-30 to 8 AM. It is not that I consciously listened to this programme. On a typical morning, one of the elders in the home (who was in the position of “authority” to operate the radio would switch on the radio, and if I was lucky then the radio station tuned would be Radio Ceylon. The early morning programme was instrumental music where tunes of Hindi movie songs, played by Enoch Daniels were broadcast. I loved this programme because listening to instrumentals of current songs was a new and thrilling experience for me. This programme would then be followed by programmes where old songs were played and I was not interested in them. I would wait for 8 AM, when the last song of “Puraani filmon ke geet” would be sung by K L Saigal and then the “Aap hi ke geet” farmaishi programme would start, much to the glee of farmaish senders from Jhumri Tilaiyya, Ganj Basoda, Yavatmal, Rajnandgaaon etc. :)

Ab to ye sab chhote chhote stations lagenge. Now these milestones will seem to be small stations on a long route train. :) :)

But nonetheless, these smaller stops have a significant role to play. In that they make possible the bigger milestones. After having done the 10K milestone, now the century milestones will seem like small cup cakes. Maybe the next thing of important enthusiasm will be the 11 thousandth post. Ah but that is still nine hundred songs away. And as soon as I think of the 11 thousandth post, my mind gets enamored by a subsequent post number that seems very magical – eleven thousand one hundred and eleven – 11111. Now that is surely going to invoke a lot of interest I am sure. That one will be the first number of its kind to appear on this blog. I mean, in five digit size.

The Many Colors of Love #19 – The Gambles of Love

And so wrote the scribe

nainon se jo naina takraaye to
kaun haara aur kaun jeeta

…….
…….
……..
is pyaar ki baazi mein hans kar
jo dil haara wo sab jeeta
jo dil haara wo sab jeeta

And they often say, the matters of heart are a gamble of life. The game of love is very exacting. And the insistence of the game-master is that no wager is big enough in this game of love. The game is played with odds which at times will compel you to bet everything in an all or nothing deal.

This post turns out to be special. Along with the love series special on the ‘Gambles of Love’, we are also making another celebration that combines surprise with anniversary and milestone. Read on, and you will find out.

The pen whose first creations mesmerized everyone with the magic of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gayaa” and “Yaad Karoge Yaad Karoge Ik Din Humko Yaad Karoge”. A dream debut that most artists just think about. He was introduced to Shashadhar Mukherjee, then still with Filmistan, and got the assignment to write for the 1947 film ‘Do Bhai’. Sachin Da took the words and wove a musical magic around them, and gave them to the voice of Geeta Rai (later Geeta Dutt). It need not even be mentioned that the rest is history.

Remembering Raja Mehdi Ali Khan on the anniversary of his passing away (on 29th July). And we couple the remembrance with a celebration – reaching the 200 songs milestone on our blog.

Writeup by Atul
————————–
So the eagerly awaited moment is here. It was planned to happen on 19 july 2014, on the sixth anniversary of the blog, but that was not to be and it has finally happened one day later. Paucity of time necessitated by urgent personal and even official engagements matters were the cause for this delay by one day. I also had to reluctantly defer three eagerly awaited writeups, viz introductory posts on M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh, Raja and Sudhir ji. They very graciously agreed to have their introductions deferred in view of the circumstances. I am very thankful for their understanding.

If one notices, a lion’s share of the writeups for the last few days have been done by Sudhir ji. He has been spending unimaginable hours on the blog for the last few days despite being tied up in his own personal and professional engagements. And this 10000th post is very much a result of his own initiative, meticulous research had hard work. My heartfelt thanks goes to Sudhir ji without whom this blog would not be what it is today.

The mention of this name brings to mind, the mindless sidelining and disregard of talent that was ever the most gifted and capable. But that is life – the unfortunate unkindness it metes out to some people is beyond our intelligence to understand. Comes to mind the lines of Meera Bai’s bhajan –

Koel Kar Dini Kaali
Santo, Karman Ki Gati Nyaari

That the Koel bird is endowed with such a beautiful voice that is incomparable, but the same Maker also made it black and ugly, such are the vagaries of destiny.

Friends, it is time to loosen the seat belts, and to start getting ready for the big celebration. Getting into the home stretch now, today we hit the last major milestone before the coveted grand prize that has been beckoning us from the horizon now, for quite some time.

BHAJAN MALA – GOLDEN 50s…(Pushp-12….Last of the series)
————————————————————

So, we are ending this Bhajan series today with the most appropriate and suitable Bhajan for the occasion, from the film- Mahapooja-54. The bhajan is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Tara Harish-both in their last phase of the career. This is a Bhajan-almost an Aarati, but not exactly-in praise of Shri Satyanarayan Swami.
