Hearty greetings to all friends and readers on the celebration of the Raksha Bandhan festival today.

Ok, ok, I know the query springing in your mind. No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth. Very much here, reassuringly. Just that the cycles of fate brought in significant distractions and preoccupation for both Atul ji and myself, at the same time. The postings are just a trickle these days. But things on the personal and work fronts are keeping both of us away. Atul ji has been maintaining the trickle, whereas I have not been able to get anything on to the blog for days on end now. Long stories are often uninteresting, so I will cut it short, and say that days of drought are coming to a close. How soon, you may want to know. Pretty soon, I assure you. ;) Hopeful to see more activity moving forward, and then we should be back to our regular output shortly.

Today is ‘poornima’ of the ‘shraavan maas’ – the full moon day of the month of Saawan, as per the traditional calendar. Today’s celebrations have already been inaugurated by the PM (I mean, Peevesie’s Mom). It is always customary and auspicious to have the inauguration done by senior ranking people of eminence, and today we already have that start. :) The earlier post by her is an interesting fun celebration song from 1987 film ‘Satyamev Jayate’. The PM has commented that we have probably showcased all the well known Raakhi songs already. To this, Atul ji has commented that there still are many more songs to go, for today’s celebration. The special thing about this blog is that we deal with not just the well known, but we also track and trace the obscure and rarely heard songs. And for that, the garden of Hindi film music is still a vast flowering arena, where all sorts of unseen, unheard flowers bloom.

The celebration itself needs no introduction. The origins of today’s festival are lost in history, embedded into our hoary traditions. The events related to today’s celebration are recorded in our scriptures, which tell about its existence and awareness through the histories of not just bygone eras, but also the bygone cycles of creation and destruction of this entire existence.

One of the earliest records of this festival that we find in our scriptures, is related to Vaaman Avatar, the appearance of Lord Vishnu in the incarnation of a small Brahmin child. The time was when the Devatas had lost the battle with the Asuras, and had been turned out of the Swarg Lok. Raja Bali, the king of Asuras, undertook to perform one hundred Yagnas, under the instructions of his teacher, Guru Shukracharya. The completion of this task of one hundred Yagnas would have made Raja Bali invincible, never to be defeated again by anyone. The Devatas, as is their propensity, went to Lord Brahma to save them from this circumstance. Brahma ji took them to Lord Vishnu, who was moved by their beseeching entreaties, and promised to help.

Now Raja Bali was also famous as the greatest philanthropist of his time. It was well known that he would never turn back any one who came to his door, and he would never decline any request that was made to him. On the day of the of the 100th Yagna, Lord Vishnu appeared at the gates of the Yagna-shala, in the form of Vaaman, a small and attractive Brahmin child. The details of what transpired that day are a consuming discourse in values of promise keeping, commitments, truthfulness and a devotees love for the Lord. And it is too detailed to be taken up here. The connection of today’s festival lie in the events that happened thereafter.

The description of the Lord requesting for land measured in three steps is well known. Also known is that when Raja Bali agreed to this request from a short statured child, the Lord transformed Himself into His ‘viraat roop’ and measured the entire universe in two steps. And when he asked Raja Bali where He should now put this third step, Raja Bali bowed his head in front of the Lord and asked Him to measure His third step.

The entire universe, everything contained therein, and now including Raja Bali himself, all became the domain of the Lord. Vishnu ji was so pleased with this sacrifice that He did two things. First, He announced Raja Bali to become the king of the ‘sutala lok’ (the netherworld). Second, He gave a ‘vardaan’ (boon) to Raja Bali, asking him to make a wish. Raja Bali, very wise and intelligent, made a wish that he should have the ‘darshan’ (seeing) of the Lord, the first thing when he wakes up, and the last thing before he goes to sleep, and that he should have His ‘darshan’ whenever he leaves his home, and whenever he returned to his home. Even the Lord himself was amazed at this boon requested by Raja Bali. He said, this would mean that He has to constantly live with Raja Bali. So the Lord took upon himself to be the gatekeeper of the Raja Bali’s palace in ‘sutala lok’. And bound by His own words, He was now committed to be a constant companion of Raja Bali.

Lakshmi ji, the wife of Lord Vishnu, was perplexed and unhappy about this arrangement. Many months passed, and She had not seen Her husband. Then She took the form of an old Brahmin lady and went to ‘sutala lok’, to the palace of Raja Bali, and requested for shelter. Raja Bali received Her as a sister and gave her shelter. After some days, on the ‘shraavan poornima’ day, She tied the sacred thread to the wrist of Raja Bali, establishing firmly the brother-sister relationship. Raja Bali requested Her to ask for a boon. Then She revealed her true identity, and requested Raja Bali to set his ‘gatekeeper’ free from the conditions of His own benefaction. Raja Bali granted the wish, and Lord Vishnu was freed, to return to his ‘Vaikunth Dhaam’. This is one of the various threads of historical narration that tell about the antiquity of this tradition.

This song is from an unheard film from 1943, titled ‘Sahara’. The film is directed by JP Advani for the banner of Vaswani Art Productions, Bombay. The eleven songs in this film are written by four songwriters – Swami Ramanand Saraswati, Nazim Panipati, Qamar Jalaalabaadi and MS Sehrai. This particular song is by MS Sehrai. The music is by Pt Gobindram. The Geet Kosh does not list the names of the singers, and I am not going to hazard a guess on that. I request friends and readers to help identify the female singing voice in this song.

The cast of actors includes Renuka Devi, Narang, Sharda, Pran, Ram Lal, Zahoor Shah, Ibrahim, Mohin etc. Unless I am mistaken, the name ‘Narang’ is the same person as SD Narang, who in later decades became a producer director. Also, one of the very early films of actor Pran.

The song itself is an expression of happiness and joy on the occasion of today’s festival. The lyrics documented below are showing two ‘antaraas’ (stanzas), but the record has three ‘antaraas’. Actually, the third stanza is a repeat of the first, so I have not included in the lyrics.  About the lyrics, there is one short line in the chorus part of the song that I have not been able to fully decipher.  I request friends and readers to help identify the missing words in that line.

Once again, happy wishes to all for today’s celebration of ‘Raakhi’

Raksha bandhan comes in the festive month of Shravan. This year it is on 29th August 2015. Wishing all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the eighth time we are celebrating it on our blog. Does that mean we have run out of Raksha Bandhan songs to be posted? Actually if we take a look at the list on the right side of our blog –the list which breaks up the blog category wise— we find 21 Rakhi songs have been posted beginning with the all-time universal favourite “Bhaiyya Mere Rakhi Ke Bandhan Ko Nibhana’ from the 1959 “Chhoti Behan”. The last song in this category was in 2013 by Sudhirji “pardesi ho humse rakhiya bandha” from a 1944 movie.

I don’t recollect what had happened last year same time that prevented Atulji from posting a Rakhi (short for Raksha Bandhan) song. That year Atulji had commented in one of his posts about having covered X number of songs of this festival in the six cycles that it had appeared up until then. Now we have definitely showcased all the well known songs of this festival. So that sends one thinking about what to post for the festival this time and LO! Like godsend I see a movie on some satellite channel and I have found my song. Here it is—

Now this is from the Raj Sippy directed and Romu Sippy produced 1987 movie “Satyamev Jayate”. It shows two sisters Madhavi and Meenakshi Seshadri showering affection and love on their brother – Alankar Joshi (who was no longer a Master then.) They both sing in the voice of Kavitha Krishnamurthy a song written by Farooque Kaiser which has been composed by Bappi Lahiri. 90% of our Rakhi songs show the sister to be younger than the brother; this song is slightly different in that here the sisters are older. Another thing which is HATKE here is that Alankar is the brother of Madhavi whose friend Meenakshi also considers him her brother —- the mooh bola bhai or Rakhi brother concept which is a common reality is used here.

Happy version

Sad version

Song-Mere bhaiyya ho lambi umariya teri (Satyamev Jayate)(1987) Singer-Kavita Krishnamurthy, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Bappi Lahiri

July 18th is an important date in the life of atulsongaday.me. Actually it marks the eve of the birth of the blog itself. I wonder what must have been Atul ji’s sphere of activity on the day prior to this date in the year 2008 when the blog was launched. Last year on this date we were on a countdown to reach our song number 10,000. With this post, we stand at 11,295.

Hearty greetings to all friends and readers for the gracious festival of Id today.

The days of fasting and penance have ended, and now comes the grand celebration of Id.  Today is the first day of the month of Shawwal.  Today is the day when festive spirit is at its most cheerful, the attire of the people is the finest, and more than anything, the bonhomie and the bonds of friendship are at their best.  It is the time to leave behind any differences and the memories of any past offenses, to forgive and to forget the resentments. As the lines of this celebratory song emphasize,

ye wo din hai ke hans hans kar giley shiqwe bhula dena
agar dushman bhi aa jaaye to ye keh kar manaa lena
id ki shaam hai

Today is the day to forget the resentments with a smile
Even if an enemy comes face to face
Give a hug and reconcile, and say
It is the day of Id today

The best thing about Holi songs is that in most cases, the message of colors is immediately apparent in the coloring of the lyrics. The songs get created in the spirit of Holi itself. It is a social and group celebrations, and the songs of this festival are sung by multiple singers, and performed by a multitude of players on the screen. And as we sit down to color code the lyrics, the resulting view is as colorful as the festival itself.

When I look back at my formative years (viz 1960s and 1970s), I find that my musical tastes at that time were quite different from what it is at present. Those were the days when I only liked new songs and scoffed at old songs. Old songs for me were any songs recorded before 1967 and composed by music directors of the generations older than that of R D Burman. It was during mid 1970s that I decided to try and like “old” songs. It was then that I discovered music directors of the earlier generation, viz O P Nayyar, C Ramchandra etc and forced myself to try and like their music, all the time comparing their music to R D Burman’s music and wondering why the older generation music directors cold not compose music like R D Burman. :)

Today (23 october 2014) is the festival of deepaawali. This festival is supposed to bring joy and happiness in the lives of everyone. I can certainly vouch for that. My main computer that has been hijacked by my wife for the last few days was surprisingly available to me this morning. I wake up earlier than others on the pretext of letting the dog out and teaching the daughter. The dogs were wide awake as usual but my daughter (and wife) are not (as usual). That gave me the opportunity of sitting on my main computer and try and give finishing touch to the posts for the day.
