The Many Colors of Love #19 – The Quarrels of Love
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

And so wrote the scribe
badi cheez hai pyaar mohabbat
aisi taisi jhagde ki
ho jaaye sarkaar mohabbat
aisi taisi jhagde ki

And why not? Having ‘chaat pakodi’ and ‘bhel puri’ occasionally is a good break from the routine meals at home, day in and day out. And so it is with the ‘jhagda’. Isn’t that a matter of common everyday experience? A lot of love, spiced with the pepper of arguments and squabbles; add to the value of high spirits and breaks the monotony of goody goody goodness. Adds to the tang in life.

Always waiting to happen, the quarrels and arguments are a natural part of any two people interactions. For who, in this world has found someone, who is 100% agreeable, and thinks exactly on the same lines as the self. No one I know, has found such a friend or companion. And if someone says he or she has, I would say, just hold on to that companion for everything in life, for you have found God.

But an important aspect of this disagreement, this altercation is that it will happen only with someone you care about. The interaction itself expresses in many different ways. And the disagreement is one of the ways that acknowledges the interaction. And more so, more strongly, because you choose to and you dare to differ, with the belief that the underlying foundations are so strong that you can afford to. Of course, as long as the ego is outside the picture, the debate for a healthy cause is the need for a healthy disagreement. Sometimes it simply is a favor, for it leads to better understanding, and even a heightened longing to continue loving each other.

The ‘naraaz hona’ and ‘roothna manaana’, that gets so much significance on screen, is actually a part of life, albeit may not be so zealously overstated. And in real life, it takes much more tact and intelligent handling – it is veritably a learning school for human interactions. All of us recall the recent incident wherein Atul ji had shared about following instructions of his better, on the 10K day, while a load of us were glued to our computer screens, waiting for the 10K song to appear. ;)

The ‘jhagda’ in Hindi films has both the comic as well as the serious flavors. The fun, the miscommunications, the misunderstandings, the confusions, sometimes accompanied with real good music and song, is a staple ingredient of the sub plots of love on screen. Sometimes it is part of a teasing game, sometimes it is a domestic situation, sometimes it is a lover’s tiff – but most importantly, there has to be a song to facilitate the proceedings (as always :) ).

The Hindi film song has a fair share of such song too. The song mentioned in the beginning of this post is from ‘Chacha Chaudhry’ (1959). Other interesting specimens are – a very domesticated jhagda song from the 1953 film ‘Dhun’ – “Hum Pyaar Karenge, Hum Pyaar Karenge, Hum Lad Ke Jhagad Ke Bhi Pyaar Karenge” ; then a request from the lady that says “O Ladke Makkhan Se, Jhagad Mat Appan Se, Hans Kar Kar Le Pyaar, Tera Kya Bigdega” from the 1971 film ‘Ganga Tera Paani Amrit’; and again, a lady trying to make up with her ‘naraaz’ beau, saying “Ye Lo Main Haari Piya, Hui Teri Jeet Re, Kaahe Ka Jhagada Baalam Nayi Nayi Preet Re” from the 1954 film ‘Aar Paar’; then there is this plea for an understanding by the gentleman “Ye Pyaar Ka Jhagda Hai To Pyaar Se Taye Keejiye” from the 1971 film ‘Aag Aur Daag’; another interesting comic piece from the 1961 film ‘Aplam Chaplam’ – “Dil Ka Natak Khel Chuke To Tu Tu Main Main Karna Kya, Jab Pyar Kiya To Ladna Kya”, (seems to be a parody of the famous song from ‘Mughal e Azam’). A very interesting mukhdaa from a song of 1935; the film is ‘Kaarvaan e Husn’ and the line is “Aap Kya Jaanein Muhabbat Kee Ladaai Ke Maze”; should be interesting to get hold of this song.

The song that I present today is from the 1959 film ‘Lady Robinhood’. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I got hold of the songs of this film, while searching for the songs of an earlier film (from 1946) with the same name. In the set of songs I got, I found this gem of a song that I was hearing for the first time. And I have heard it again and again many times since. The singing voices are of Mahendra Kapoor and Geeta Dutt. I have a strong feeling that in the on screen performance of this song, the lady’s voice is picturized on Tuntun, simply going by the words in the lyrics, and even by the manner in which Geeta ji has sung the lines, sounding so close to Tuntun, the comedienne on screen. The lyrics are by Bekal Amritsari and the music composition is by Sardul Kwatra.

The film is produced under the banner of Rekha Chitr and is directed by BJ Patel. The cast of actors includes Mehru, Nilofer, Rajan Kapoor, Samar Rai, Miraajkar, Tuntun, Shakila Bano Bhopali, Nazir Kashmiri, Moolchand, Abdul Sattar, Balbir, Ram Raseela, Shri Bhagwan, Nandini, Shiela and many more.

The song starts with a resolve for an all-or-nothing fight to the end, as the gentleman is bent to convince the lady of his intentions. There follows a very rapid fire and a very interesting exchange, that is hilarious and includes threats of physical violence by the lady. The lyrics are quiet an interesting mix of Hindi, some Punjabi that includes a couple of very typical north Indian phrases, with a sprinkling of English words thrown in. About the typical phrases from north India, I explain them here.

One of them is ‘tibri tight’. Before the plastic bottles came, the cold drinks were packaged in glass bottles, with a vacuum sealed metal cap that required a special opener. In Punjabi, this cap is called ‘tibri’. It is a lot of mechanical energy that is used to seal the ‘tibri’’ with lot of fizz and pressure to be contained inside. And the threat of ‘tightening the tibri’ for someone is to warn that person to stay within limits, or good care will be taken of him. Almost akin to threats of physical violence.

The second phrase is ‘do kaanon mein sar’. Literally it simply means ‘the head is between two ears’. Now isn’t that the most normal expectation for anybody, that the head is always in between two ears? Well the usage of this phrase is to warn another person who seems to flying too high, taking too much liberties with words and actions – implying that the person’s head is not in its right place, or that the head is too big meaning the person is very arrogant and conceited. So the warning is that the person will be dealt in a manner such that his high flying or oversized head is placed to fit well in between his ears.

And so the song proceeds with threats being exchanged. But of course, the limitation is that this fight will not last more than three minutes and some seconds (playing length of a 78 rpm record ;) ). So by the time the third antaraa comes to a close, all is well, the anger is gone and the two are making avid promises not to fight again. Ah, blessed be the Hindi film song – a fight cannot last more than three minutes. :D :D

Listen to this very ‘fresh sound’ from more than half a century ago. And what’s more, listen to the rare sound of Mahendra Kapoor yodeling at the end of the song. Listen and enjoy.

kuchh jodiyaan duniya mein bahut kam milti hain
magar jab milti hain to ghazab ka aalam hota hai

There are combinations of artists that have created some wondrous songs and music. But the disappointment at times is that these artist may have had really very few opportunities to work with each other. Yesterday, as I started to select some songs to post for today to celebrate Mukesh’s anniversary, this thought came to my mind. And I started to look for some songs that Mukesh has sung under the music direction of Jaidev. Just putting together these two names, sounds like a great combination that expected would be creating some wonderful gems together.

As I searched the Geet Kosh, I was in for a disappointment of sorts. As far as I can make out from my search, it seems that Mukesh has sung only two songs for Jaidev. I was expecting more, but then we must count our blessings, for they are the joy that keeps us going.

One song is the iconic “Jab Gham e Ishq Sataata Hai To Hans Leta Hoon” from the 1963 film ‘Kinaare Kinaare’. A rare combination of artists, and a rare song performed on screen by Chetan Anand.

Today I bring to present here possibly the only other song that Mukesh has sung for Jaidev. It is one of the comparatively less heard songs, but it is a song of the highest quality of gems. I remember this song from the radio listening days as a child, and then later this song just seems to have disappeared from the air waves.

The film is ‘Bhaavna’ from 1972. From the banner of Satya Films Corporation, it is directed by Thakur Karunesh. The star cast of the film
includes Dev Kumar, Soniya Sahni, Padma Khanna, Indira, Dev Dutt, Sajjan, Sundar, Dhanraj, V Gopal, Dilip Dutt, Rajrani, Chacha, Moolchand, Deepak Raj, Rajshri T, Kamini Kaushal, Anita Sinha, Manjeet Kumar, Prabhat Kumar, Mahindra Kumar, Shyam Kumar, Dhruv Kumar, and Satish etc.

The lyrics of this beautiful song are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri. It is a duet with Asha Bhosle joining Mukesh to render this loveable, slow paced exchange between two hearts in love. The twosome are alone by themselves, and the gentleman poses the question – “Kya Iraada Hai”. And one can expect a touch of mischief in the song. Very simply worded, and very simply rendered. A song that you will fall in love with.

I am sure that this song is going to be the delight of the day, bringing some endearing and maybe naughty moments back to the heart, and memories.

Listen and enjoy.

PS – as has been informed in comments section by Mahesh ji, and by Harish Raghuvanshi ji in email.

Mukesh has sung under the music direction of Jaidev, in the following films

1963 Kinare Kinare – 1 Solo

1971 Do Boond Paani – 1 Duet

1971 Ek Thi Reetaa – 1 Duet

1972 Bhaavanaa – 1 Duet

1972 Maan Jaaiye – 1 Duet

Besides these, Mukesh also recorded one song each for two incomplete films in the 1970s.

a. Pritima – Tumko Yoon Dekhaa Hai…

b. Tanhaai – Tumhine Dilko Dil Samajhaa Nahin Hai

Both these songs are written by Kaifi Azmi. And both of them are used in the telefilm ‘Chaand Grahan’.

Many thanks to Harish ji and Mahesh ji, for these corrections.

Today (22 july 2014) is the birth anniversary of Edwina Violette, affectionately called Edu by her aquiantances. She was born in a Military Hospital and the Matron of the hospital gave her the Name Edwina after Lady Mountbatton.

She had made her debut in Hindi movies in 1958. She was there in Light House (1958), a movie produced and directed by G P Sippy and starring Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Johnny Walker, Nigar Sultana, Master Pakkoo, Naazi, Rajen Kapoor etc. She remembers that she had appeared in a scene in this movie which was picturised outdoors on the Juhu beach.

She worked in Hindi movies for one decade and then emigrated to England in late 1960s just when she had begun to attract attention with songs viz. O haseena zulfon waali jaane jahaan(Teesri Manzil), where she was the “zulfon waali haseena”.

She is leading a contented retired life ever since. She is active in facebook and she is facebook friend with many regulars of this blog. A few regulars have also met her, for example, Memsaab, Harvey etc.

On the occasion of Edwina’s birth anniversary, here is a lovely and lively fun duet from “Light House” (1958). The song is sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of this song is available. Rafi excel sheet mentions that the song was picturised on Johny Walker. But who lip synced in Geeta Dutt’s voice is net mentioned. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This is the seventh and final song from “Light House” (1958) to appear in the blog. So, “Light House” (1958) now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 48 (Post number 10003)
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –– – – – – – – –– – – –

Internet became available to public in 1995, and it became available to Indian public in 1996. I became exposed to it in 1997 and I began to have internet connection at home from 1998 onwards.

Development of internet took place rapidly and internet forums came into existence soon. I was a cricket enthusiast and I was looking forward to join a cricket forum. I could not find an Indian cricket forum of my liking. There were cricket forums populated by loud, jingoist and abusive ignorants but those sites were not my cup of tea. I finally settled for a Pakistani cricket forum called pakcricbuzz (by now defunct). This was quite a sensible cricket forum and it had some Indians too in it. One Indian called Saurabh was one of its moderators. This happened in the second half of 2004.

Though most cricket discussions on this forum were for current matches, the forum had a nostalgia section as well that was meant to discuss matches of the past. I began to post my reminiscences of Indian cricket of 1970s in that nostalgia section. Saurabh, some 15 years younger to me began to appreciate my write ups and wanted to know more about Indian cricketers of those days.

One fine day I found one new member called Raja commenting on my nostalgic post exclaiming that he was exactly in the same age group and that he also remembered these matches well. I thought from his ID that he must be a Pakistani fan with the surname of Raja, viz. Waseem Raja or Rameez Raja.

His later posts revealed that he was from India and he grew up in eastern part of India, within a few hundred kilometer where I was growing up. I began to take a liking for him because his cricketing interests and memories appeared so much like me.

The site (affectionately called PCB in short) had another subsection where people introduced themselves. On digging through old posts in that thread, I came across an Indian member mentioning that he was part of a new cricket forum called cricforum. com. I visited the site. It was a new site, and it was quite inactive. But this forum had Saurabh, and it was a forum set up by Indian cricket fans. I liked the looks of this forum and I joined it. Soon it became my main cricket forum and I actively began to participate in its discussions. This happened in june 2005.

I was very pleased when I found Raja also finding his way to cricforum.com two weeks later. There we became more familiar with each other. cricforum.com was looking for an India based moderator and I was made a moderator of that forum. An announcement was made to the fact that Atul bhai is our new moderator in the forum. Members congratulated me, including Raja, who commented- “So your name in Atul!”. My ID was squarecut in that forum (as also in PCB).

cricforum.com had members who liked to mix fun with cricket following and they had first tried this in BBC cricket forums (called TMS), but the stiff upper lips Britons had looked down upon such posts and most of these members would often get banned and their threads would get deleted. One such person had set up cricforum as a forum where they could indulge in their kind of cricket discussion without any such fears.

The discussions on cricforum used to be full of fun.In addition to cricket, there was a section called “muppet masti” where people would let their hair down discussing interesting topics. One topic for instance “Muppets break into Bollywood”. In this thread, different members took over different roles and prepared the script of a Bollywood movie. Raja was the script writer cum story writer while I was the music director. :) The story of the movie thus created had all the masala ingredients known to mankind. :). I forgot who the lyricist was but he created some fantastic lyrics. :)

Music lovers among the members created a subsection on music and they began to discuss movies, including Hindi movie music. We began a series of weekly “geetmala” where a member would present a “geetmala” every week. I presented a “geetmala” on Rail songs. I eagerly looked forward to comments on my presentation. Saurabh and Raja were two people whose comments were eagerly looked forward to by me, because they would comment exhaustively and give their compliments generously.

2005 was a time when many members of cricforum were at the peak of their creativity and that made the forum a great place to be in. I used to write well researched cricket articles as well as fun articles in the forum. Raja also used to do the same. I remember one of his fun post. In that post Raja went somewhere in his car. Unnoticed to Raja, a fly got trapped inside the car. When Raja noticed the fly, he began to worry about it and its family members. :)

A favourite topic among many of us was making fun of Indian cricket team and the cricket board (BCCI), especially when the team did badly (which was quite often). We would call this team BCCI and not India, emphasising that the “Indian” cricket team represents BCCI, a private club, and not the nation as such. Raja was a big BCCI basher and he would come up with satirical pieces on the workings of BCCI. Raja and Asterix, another bird of the same feather, once came up with a hilarious article that offered a plausible explanation for BCCI’s defeat against Sri Lanka in Muralitharan’s last test. Reading that article was a laugh riot.

I have always felt that cricforum had several brilliant minds and some of them had the potential to become great writers but for the fact that they were already settled in their careers and they did not have to think of writing as their careers. One cricforum writer who actually sought to make it a career is now a much admired author in espncricinfo.com. Yes, Andrew Hughes, the celebrated espncricinfo.com author was originally a member of cricforum.com and we often enjoy basking in his reflected glory. :)

Raja is a fantastic author as well and those reading his articles in this blog and elsewhere are only too familiar with this fact. His articles are highly readeable. And Raja, with his interests in cricket and movies, and also in some more topics, has lots and lots of things to say, given an opportunity.

When Raja was growing up in Orissa in a remote location, he would enjoy listening to radio commentary with his equally cricket crazy brother. Raja’s brother had the knack of knowing the correct field placing in any match situation. Sometimes the BCCI team would place fields as “suggested” by Raja’s brother, and would immediately reap rewards in the form of a wicket. :)

I had listened to a Vishesh Jaimala programme presented by Sunil Gavaskar in 1975. I discussed this vishesh jaimala programme in cricforum in 2005 and mentioned the song “Chaand si mehbooba” that Gavaskar had played for his then new wife. Raja exclaimed that he too had listened to the very same programme at the very same time !

Raja was a properly brought up good boy during his school days and he did not know what “black” as in “black marketing” of movie tickets meant. Once he went to a movie hall to watch an already house full movie show of “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977). A person (black marketeer- though Raja was not aware of this fact) was calling out “Chaar ka bees, chaar ka bees” and Raja understood it to mean that he was selling four tickets for Rs twenty. :) Read the lowdown on this episode in this article in Raja’s own words. :)

Raja became a high flying banking sector professional after completing his education and he was based in Netherlands. But he has continued to remain the same simple, friendly and unassuming soul, one who enjoys small things in life far more than the “Big” things in life. He is one who can laugh at himself and who is prepared to give up his sleep for simple things in life viz. listening to Hindi movie songs. He is a big fan of Rafi and Sahir Ludhianvi. I have utilised his weakness for Rafi and Sahir to the hilt by requesting him for articles on them, often at the eleventh hour, and Raja, despite all his other engagements, has always given me those writeups.

Raja lives in Holland while his family members in India are settled in Bangalore. He visits them every year, often more than once in the year. It was in 2010 that Raja decided to visit Nagpur from Bangalore. His aim was to meet two of his cricforum friends who were at Nagpur those days. Asterix (mentione above), who is UK based but a native of Nagpur, had come for Puja vacations was one and I was another.

I met Raja and asterix on the night of 29 october 2010 at my residence. Here is what Raja shared about this meeting in cricforum at that time:

I came over from Bangalore to Nagpur to meet Asterix and Atul.
I first met Asterix on the 28th evening (he picked me up from the station).
We then arranged to meet Atul the following evening (Friday – 29th).

We went over to Atul’s place. Very nice place – Atul has people at his beck and call for his household work. * jealous *

Anyway, it was a very memorable experience.

Already meeting Asterix the previous evening was a great feeling – and now meeting Atul also was just amazing.
We discussed a lot of stuff – mostly about CF of course. And about Atul’s song blog.

Asterix and Atul also expressed concern about the increasing dominance of Bangladesh on the cricket scene and how it could impact minnows like BCCI who are in the same group in the World Cup. ;-) Personally I think they were more concerned about the impact on a certain cricket forum. ;-)

Atul then showed us how he builds up his song blog – from a blog owner’s perspective.
It was fascinating.

We also got to see some of his VCD collection. More than 150 VCDs – most of them old (forgotten) Hindi movies. These provide the raw material for his song blog to a large extent. And I am informed by Atul that this is only a part of his collection – he has much more.

The evening was already going very well – but then it went many notches higher for me when Atul showed us something else.
This really brought tears (of nostalgia) to my eyes.

He showed us a diary that he used to maintain in 1976.

In those days, he used to write down cricket scorecards of various matches going on at that time.
Seeing the names of Gavaskar, Gaekwad, Vishwanath – written in Atul’s handwriting – really made me remember those days.

I got into a major nostalgia session – Asterix cut me short (like he often does ;-) ), suggesting that we could continue the discussion over dinner. :-)
(Actually we had another friend with us – not a CF person – and Asterix, understandably, did not want him to get bored).

In this diary, Atul also used to write down Hindi songs. Movie, singers, music directors – and full lyrics. As much as he could capture at that time from radio. Remember these were pre-Internet days, these were days when you really had to search and hunt for info that is readily available nowadays. You had to listen to a song umpteen times before you could get it right.

I think this passion is what has now morphed into Atul’s blog. Different times, new technology – but same, burning passion.

We then went out for dinner. By then it was a little late – we dropped Atul back at his place and returned to Asterix’s place (where I was staying), with very fond memories of our meeting.

Thank you, Atul. It was a very memorable evening. 29th October 2010.

I have mentioned in a previous writeup that this blog got several regulars from Memsaab’s blog. But that was not purely a one way traffic. Raja learnt about Memsaab’s blog through this blog and so went to her blog from this blog. :) This reminds me of that famous “Deewaar” (1975) dialogue(suitably paraphrased)-“Maine tumhe X member diya, maine tumhe Y member diya, maine tumhe Z member diya, tumne mujhe kaun sa member diya”, And my reply would have been-“Maine tumhe Raja diya. :)

Yes, Raja is a commentor, a lyrics sender and a guest poster for this blog. Elsewhere he is a sub title writer, parody writer, author of thought provoking articles on matters of national importance etc as well. He, alongwith Ava Suri has written sub titles for Memsaab’s Edu Production DVDs of obscure movies so that non Hindi speakers may be able to follow these movies in a more informed manner.

Raja is a very widely travelled person. His travels have takes him to various places and he has met lots of his online friends in person as well. As far as the regulars of this blog are concerned, he has met me, Ava Suri, Memsaab and perhaps some more that I may not be aware of.

On this occasion, here is a lovely duet from a movie called “Pick Pocket”(1962). This song is sung by Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Gulshan Baawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Chhaaya hua hai kadki ka mausam (Pick Pocket)(1962) Singers-Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

chhaaya hua hai
kadki ka mausam
aur pet khaali
ab kya karen
aise mein dilbar
dil maangta hai
bhojan ki thhaali
ab kya karen
ho ho ho
ab kya karen

o o o
koi na jaane
dil ki lagi ko
o dil ke maali
ab kya karen
haaye
aaun to kaise
kadmon mein jag ne
zanjeer daali
ab kya karen
o o o
ab kya karen

sab khhaa rahe hain maze se paraathhe
chale mere dil par
chhuri aur kaante
chale mere dil par
chhuri aur kaante
mohabbat mein yaaron
nikla deewaala
sab ki deewaali
ab kya karen
heh
koi na jaane dil ki lagi ko
o dil ke maali
ab kya karen
o o o
ab kya karen

saara zamaana khushiyaan manaaye
bin tere saajan
kuchh bhi na bhaaye
bin tere saajan
kuchh bhi na bhaaye
tu door hai to
peeli padi hai
gaalon ki laali
ab kya karen haaye
koi na jaane
dil ki lagi ko
o dil ke maali
ab kya karen
o o o
ab kya karen

o o o
chhaaya hua hai
kadki ka mausam
aur pet khaali
ab kya karen
aise mein dilbar
dil maangta hai
bhojan ki thhaali
ab kya karen
haaye haaye haaye
ab kya karen

It seems almost surreal – that five-digit number. 10,000.

Let me now write it in words. In capitals. TEN THOUSAND.

Ah, it feels so sweet. :-)

He he he he he he
La la la la la la la la la la
pyaar hua hai jabse

Whenever I listen to this song from ‘Abhilasha-1968’, I am thrilled, I get goose-bumps, its music makes me delighted and it takes back to the time when I was a kid and I was playing with an inflatable rainbow color beach ball, which my Father had brought for me…

One of the earliest articles in the blog that gave me immense satisfaction was the article on the song “Din hai suhaana aaj pehli taareekh hai”. This song, that brings back nostalgia big time for people growing up in 1960s and 1970s is from “Pahli Taareekh” (1954) and it was played on Radio Ceylon (later SLBC) on the first day of every month. Listening to this song on the first day of every month in the “puraani filmon ke geet” programme was a divine experience. One needed to live in that era to savour it. Those who could never savour it because they were not born then, I can only say-tough luck. Better luck next time. :)
