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.

In 1946, the renowned Ghulam Haider took a very young 18 year old girl to Filmistan Studio, to introduce her to S Mukherjee. The young girl went through a voice audition for the big boss of Filmistan, who summarily rejected her, saying that her voice was too thin, without depth and without range. A disappointed Ghulam Haider had remarked to S Mukherjee, that he would one day regret this decision, and the world will know the capabilities of this artist.

In September 1988, Doordarshan National channel started telecasting what was to become the stupendously popular serialization of the renowned epic ‘Mahabharat’. And for a period of almost two years (94 Sundays), an audience of almost 20 crore Indians would be glued to the TV sets. And in every episode, the audience was greeted with the rendition of the title song and shlokas, and the every episode was bid good bye with a verse that summarized the story, the state of affairs, and the learnings from the particular episode. These opening and ending title song and verses came through the telecast riding on the booming voice of the one and the only singer who could have made the impact with his voice. His rendition of the opening word ‘Mahaaa-Bhaaarat’ is now etched in the aural memory of the viewers. The voice that had the power to shake a thunder. Mahendra Kapoor – the only voice that could make it happen.

Regular by the calendar now, the century milestones are coming and passing with their fixed regularity. I suppose, this occasion is now taken for granted by the members of the bandwagon, the friend circle and the readers. The curiosity now is not so much, when the century milestone is coming up. Rather the curiosity now is, what is going to be the ‘century’ special that will be served up with the milestone. :)

The Voice of Mukesh #30
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - -

‘O Jaanewaale’ is kind of an unheard film from 1948. Searching for the next installment in this series of Mukesh songs, I come across this film, which probably I would have simply overlooked otherwise. Produced under the banner of Navhind Pictures, Bombay, it is directed by S Sardesai. The star cast includes Geeta Desai, Trilok Kapoor, Umakant, Pande, Mehar Sultana, Manchi Thoothi, RB Rohini, and Master Chandrakant. The music of this film is by a music director whose name sounds totally unfamiliar – Ali Hussain Moradabadi, a name that appears on this blog for the first time today. The film has seven songs, penned by three poets by the names Kaifi, Mustafa an S Sardesai. However, there is no specific information that links a poet’s name to each song.

The songs written by him were a rage in the 70s and 80s. Sample the following - “Rotey Huye Aate Hain Sab, Hansta Hua Jo Jaayegaa. . .”(‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’, 1978), “Maano To Main Ganga Maa Hoon, Naa Maano Te Behtaa Paani”(‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’, 1978), “O Khaike Paan Barnaaras Waala”(‘Don’,1978), “Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi”(‘Namak Halaal’, 1982), “Jahaan Chaar Yaar Mil Jaayen” (‘Sharaabi’, 1984), “Gori Hain Kalaayi’aan, Tu La De Mujhe Hari Hari Choodiyaan” (‘Aaj Ka Arjun’, 1990). And not that the 60s was bereft of his creations. The rustic and earthy “Pipraa Ke Patwaa Sarikhe Doley Manwaa” (‘Godaan’, 1963), or velvety romanticism of “Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil, Mera Mehboob Aata Hai”(‘Namaste ji’, 1965), or the delicately sensuous “Aap Ke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Nayaa Noor Hai”(‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, 1966), or pensive sounds of “Aaj Tumse Door Ho Kar, Aise Royaa Mera Pyaar”(‘Ek Raat’, 1967), or the fun filled song of intoxication “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriyaa Kaise Chamke”(‘Bandhan’, 1969) – endearing gems all, spread out over a career that lasted over four decades.

The pen that crafted these timeless verses laid itself to rest with the passing away of Laal ji Pandey, better known to music lovers as Anjaan –this day sixteen years ago (03 Sep, 1997). And a befitting day to celebrate the 100th song written by him to make it on this blog.
