chanchal mann, kaahe dharke
ruk ja ruk ja
o zaraa tham jaa
tham jaa

Ah yes, one can sense the feeling. The grand milestone seems just around the corner and we have 9600 on the scoreboard today. And so I caution my heart to not be impatient. The rolling pace continues to be consistent, but somehow it seems that the 10 thousand mark is approaching at a faster velocity. Just another three century milestones away now. Just about 9 more weeks or so to go.

OK, so it is 9500 today. Goodness, the Doppler effect that I discussed, oh just three short weeks ago, seems to be working just as told. The actual pace of posting songs is fairly normal and consistent. And yet, it seems we are speeding up, and will be reaching the magic number, faster than we thought we would get there.

Poets as singers may not be an uncommon expectation. Poets are known for their singing prowess in mushairas and in kavi sammelans. They are expected to present their verses in ‘tarrannum’. However, not many have ventured into singing in the films. It is quite strange, because they are the one’s who best know the words, their intent, and their meaning. They also have a fair idea about an underlying melody that hides behind the meter and rhyme that they have created. Lyricist DN Madhok was famous for providing a basic ‘dhun’ to the music directors, for every song he wrote. But still, one does not find many singing in the films in their own voice.

It seems to me that we just did the century milestone. I simply turn around, had just taken one breath, and there is Atul ji’s message that we are on to the next century stone. Wo, I say to myself, this is not right. But then I check, and it is. 9400, OMG.

Suron ki malika – Suraiya.
——————————–

There is no better epithet that so appropriately suits this princess of musical notes. A princess who has also been called the Cindrella of Hindi cinema. A possessor of remarkable beauty, a talent that oozes with the formal ‘adaayagi’ of the north Indian urdu ‘tehzeeb’, and a voice that casts a magic spell difficult to snap out of, Suraiya is the fulfillment of the feminine essence of the quintessential heroine of the silver screen. But despite being what she was, she was destined to remain a Cindrella, forever waiting for a companion, for her knight on a white horse. Thirty four is an age when most other artists are still on the rise in their careers, getting into their prime time. But for her, thirty four was the age when she retired from the industry, to spend the remaining four decades of her life in relative anonymity and reclusion.

Ninety Three Hundred, and counting. The merry bandwagon continues to roll, and we come yet one more milestone closer to that target, that now seems oh so accessible. Congratulations, and more congratulations – to all friends and contributors who are making this journey so beautiful, so enjoyable, and oh yes, so much worth the while. A team effort that would simply be unparalleled anywhere in the annals of film and film music journalism and internet publication.

Since time immemorial, classical and semi-classical ( thumri, dadra, khayal etc,) music have been the privilege mainly of the higher strata of the society. As such, they have not been as popular as the film music as the latter has a wider reach. Then we have the legacy and a rich heritage of regional folk music which remained within the confines of the respective regions. However, with the advent of talkies and playback singing from early 1930s, film songs based on the classical ragas, semi-classical and folk tunes have played a major role in popularising these genres of Indian music especially during the golden era of the film music. In a way, films have become the catalyst for providing equal opportunity to all across India to access music.

Yesterday, just like that, I googled ‘nine thousand’. Did not expect to find anything really interesting and useful to write about. After all, it is just another number. But really, I was surprised. Wow, never thought I would find such an interesting information description that would be so appropriate for this huge milestone that we have arrived at today.

Two years have passed. Well, almost, just about two weeks short. It was another cool night of November that I was busy typing the write up for the 5000th song on this blog. There was much exhilaration and excitement that the 5000th milestone was reached. There were some very cautious and guarded comments, pointing towards the 10,000th song. But at that time, although the 5000th was already capped, the 10,000th still seemed daunting and unthinkable. That was two years ago.
