“Sangram” (1965) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. Like “Parasmani” (1963), the earlier movie of Babubhai Mistry, this movie too had B grade superstars in it viz Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Maruti, Aruna Irani, King Kong etc.

“Parasmani” (1963) had music by a newcomer music director duo and that music went on to become surprise hit. “Sangram” (1965) too had music by a newcomer music duo and they too gave superb music but unfortunately the box office success of “Parasmani”(1963) could not be achieved this time and the music too failed to catch the imagination of music lovers.

Here is the song from “Sangram” (1965) that can be called the counterpart of Hansta hua nooraani chehra(Parasmani). The song, like the famous Parasmani song, is sung by Lata and Kamal Barot. Aish Kanwal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Lata Sattar.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Geetanjali and Swarna Kumari, with Aruna Irani also figuring in a masculine attire with beard as well. A comment on YT mentions that Geetanjali and Swarna Kumari were sisters and they were well known dancers in Tamil movies.

I wonder whether this lyricist Aish Kanwal is related to actress Peace Kanwal. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the matter.

This song, unlike Hansta hua nooraani chehra(Parasmani) has ended up becoming an extremely rare song. But make no mistake, this song is a masterclass. One only has to watch the picturisation a few times before this song begins to grow upon you.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

This song marks Nitin Shah’s 800th lyrics contribyution in the blog. He becomes the second lyrics contributor to achieve this barely belivable feat.

In his three years of association with this blog, Nitin Shah has shared songs on a wide variety of genres. His songs are normally from 1940s the 1960s, which also happens to be the era whose songs tend to get discussed the most in this blog. Nitin Shah, like Prakashchandra, the other member of the 800 club, has sent lots and lots of lyrics to me that are yet to see the light of the day. So we can be rest assured that his lyrics contributions will continue to appear in the blog for a long long time and he will continue to reach newer and bigger milestones with time.

Our contributors have their own ways of contributing lyrics and I am happy to have them without looking at the gift horse in the mouth. Nitin Shah’s contributions are mostly in the form of huge files containing lots of songs in a genre, viz songs from 1950 pt I, songs from 1950 pt II,, balance songs of Suraiyya etc. :) The blog now has almost all Suraiyya songs and the big files of Suraiyya songs sent by Nitin Shah was a big help in this regard which meant that I only needed to look at theese files for Suraiyya songs which was a big time saver for me.

It can be easily seen that Nitin Shah spends unimaginable amount of time and effort in coming up with these huge lists of lyrics. It calls for great passion and enthusiasm. We mainly know him through his comments. We got to know him some more during the run up to the 10kth song of the blog. His introduction post, which I find extremely inspirational, revealed what a determined person he could be in his life. And it is his determination and never say die attitude that has enabled him to contribute so enthusiastically in the blog despite his active and busy professional life.

We are privileged to have Nitin Shah among the contributors of this blog. I hope that he will continue to be one of the major pillars of this blog as this musical bandwagon continues to march on. I take this opportunity to congratulate Nitin Shah. Here is hoping that he will continue to achieve many more musical feathers to his cap in due course.

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

dam dam dam dam damroo baaje
thhaap dol ki thaithaiya
re naachoon sajanva
chham chham chham
main to nachu balamva
thhai thhai thhai
main to naachoon sajanva

dam dam dam dam damru baaje
thhaap dol ki thaithaiya
re nachoon sajanva
chham chham chham
main to nachu balamva
thhai thhai thhai
main to naachoon sajanva

chaand ke rath par baith ke aayi
main kirnon ki raani

main kirnon ki rani odhkar aayi
chunariya dhaani
o o seep se jaise moti nikle
aisi meri jawaani

aisi meri jawaani
jaise chanchal raat suhaani
tann mann mein jal tarang dole
tere pyaar ki sargam boley

naachoon sajanva
main to nachoon balamva
main to nachoon sajanva

gore mukh par ghunghta daaloon
nainan mein hai laaj

nainan mein hai laaj
milenge aaj mujhe sartaaz
saat suron ke deep jalaake
kyun na nachoon aaj

kyun na naachoon aaj
mila hai ek anokha raaz
baazi apne haath rahegi
teri yaad jo saath rahegi

naachoon sajanva
main to naachoon balamva
main to nachoon sajanva

aaja tujhko dhoondh rahi hai
honthon ki muskaan

honthon ki muskaan liye
main tujh par hoon qurbaan
ho ho ek jhalak dikhla de
phir se
dil ke hain armaan

dil ke hain armaan sajanva
humko tu pehchaan
hum par tere pyaar ka jaadu
kaise aaj ho dil par kaabu

nachoon sajanva
main to naachoon balamva
main to naachoon sajanva

dam dam dam dam damroo baaje
thaap dol ki thaithaiya
re naachoon sajanva
chham chham chham
main to naachoon balamva
thhai thhai thhai
main to naachoon sajanva

Bangalore Gangout – The Remote Version – In 10,400

- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

Us din mujhe achhi daant padi – got an earful to listen from the family.

But then, before I get to describe my travails of that day, and the reasons behind that, I must take a pause and announce the celebration for today. Yes, yes, we are at the 10,four00th milestone. Goodness, and here I was thinking that we are going slow, as our “fearless” leader is under the control and command of his superiors, and the pace these days is not his usual self, but when I checked the numbers earlier in the evening, of course nudged by Atul ji himself in an email message that actually got delivered 30 hours late – goodness, can you imagine something like that happen in the bookfaced world of today; ah but that is a different gripe that I will not dwell upon right now, and just say that soon as I realized that we are so smacking close to the century marker, that it all became a scramble, not that I was not ready with something, meaning this post, just that I was thinking, abhi do chaar din baad mein, to repair and finalize for posting, but Atul ji’s message changed all the priorities – and by the way don’t you also feel that this sentence now needs a full stop. Whew.

A man with a spiritual bend of mind would believe that his destiny was pre-planned even before he was born. There are others who believe that they can mold their own destiny. Shailendra was one of those who seemed to have believed that he could be master of his own destiny. That he was a member of Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA) indicates what destiny he had chosen for himself. He had taken up the task of awakening the Indian masses on their rights and duties in the background of post-independent India. It was therefore no surprise when he spurned Raj Kapoor of his offer of taking his inspirational song for the film Aag (1948) telling him that his poems were not for sale. However, Raj Kapoor left his address with him in case he had a change of mind.

I can imagine in my mind’s eye. Atul ji getting interviewed on some online forum. The interviewer asks about what he does. Atul ji tells him that he is managing this Atul Song A Day blog. The interviewer asks Atul ji to describe this blog, what prompted him to set this up and tell about its specialties. Atul ji starts telling about the blog, its origins and its features. Near the end of the interview, the interviewer asks so tell what is new on the blog today. Atul ji raises one hand to cover a yawn, then remarks – “nothing much, the usual stuff, we just clocked another 100 songs today.” :D :D

Regulars may have noticed that I have discussed lots of Suraiyya songs in the recent past and now we have reached close to her total tally of HFM songs that she sang. In my previous writeup on Suraiyya, I had given some figures about her songs. Here, in this writeup, I give the findings of my research on Suraiyya songs.

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.

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.
