Love has needs of words and expressions. And when the lovers are away from each other, the restless pining of the heart materialize as messages that take on many forms. There are countless episodes of these messages of love, many famous and well known, and many more multifold that are personal and undisclosed.

pal chin
kaliyaan gin gin
tera har din
tab tak rangon se khele
rang jab tak baaki hain bahaaron mein

These are the days of instant connectivity when one can keep in contact with one’s beloved through calls, sms and what not !

It was just a decade or two ago that such communication took place via the medium that is now known as snail mail. Letters were sent to one’s beloved though post office, and in case of Hindi movies where the hero’s beloved lived in the same mohalla, he would try to send his love letter directly, without going through the formality of posting it through the post office.

Today (5 september) is an important day in India for a non musical reason too. It is the birthday of Dr. Sarwapalli Radhakrishnan (5 september 1888 – 17 april 1975), who was India’s second president and prior to that he had made his mark as an eminent scholar and philosopher. He was knighted by Britain in 1931 and he was accorded “Bharat Ratna”, India’s highest civilian honour in 1954. In honour of Dr Radhakrishnan as a scholar, this day is celebrated in India as teacher’s day.

16th november 1966 was the day when Roshan, then at the peak of his career expired all of a sudden. That happened exactly 45 years ago and lots of water has flown under the bridge since. His two sons managed to have reasonable careers in Hindi movies, with one of his songs following in his steps as a music director. and his grandson, who was born several years after his death became a superstar of Hindi movies. Today many people of the younger generation remember Roshan as the grandfather of Hrithik Roshan. As far as people of my generation as well as older generation is concerned, Hrithik Roshan is the grand son of Roshan and not vice versa. The fact that the first name of Roshan Lal Nagrath should be adopted as the surname by his sons and grandsons shows what a huge star Roshan was. His name sold, and it sells today, and it will sell long after Hrithik Roshan has retired.

I am fond of saying that Bollywood movies have one great “Chitthi” (letter) song every decade, beginning from 1960s. Thus we had Likhe jo khat tujhe(Kanyadaan)(1968) in 1960s, Daakiya daak laaya(Palkon ki chhaon mein)(1977) (Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein” in 1970s, “Chitthi aayi hai aayi hai” (Naam) in 1980s and Sandese aate hain(Border)(1997) (Border) in 1990s. All these songs are already posted in this blog.

Whenever I see Meena Kumari in a song, I dread that a melancholic song is going to follow. And I heave a big sigh of relief every time my fears turn out to be unfounded.
