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.

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.

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.
