Hindi movie music was predominanatly based on classical music during the first decade (viz 1930s). It was in early 1940s that Ghulam Haider introduced Punjabi Folk music based songs in “Khazaanchi” (1941). This paradigm shift was avidly lapped up by public and this paved the way for folk music based songs in Hindi movies. Ghulam Haider was followed by Naushad who introdced UP folk music in his compositions. That opened the floodgates and then we had different music directors composing songs based on folk music from different regions.

I am on a different thought track today. I was thinking of the approaching birthday season in my family. Thats what I call it as 3 from a family of 4 have their birthdays in the 15 day period from 23rd December to 6th January. My daughter leads the pack and son (he is the older one) brings up the rear. So I was down memory lane thinking of the time when they had just begun to walk, talk, sing or dance etc. So that put me on to the song I want to discuss today. This was a song to which my one year old daughter first shook her leg for.

I wonder if anyone has made a list of “Chakki” songs in Hindi movies. Present generation people may not be aware of a “Chakki”. “Chakki” was a manual rotaty grinder- a home appliance of previous generations which was used to grind grains. You poured grains on the hole near the centre of the “chakki” and rotated the “Chakki”. The grain got crushed and came out from the edges which was then collected.

Munshi Premchand (31 July 1880- 8 october 1936) was a premier Hindi novelist whose novels and stories have had an enormous influence on modern Hindi literature. When I look at his literary output, I am amazed at his vision. His vision was unbelievably progressive and futuristic, especially considering the era he lived in (late 19th century to early 20th century).

“Upar Gagan Vishaal, Neeche Gehraa Pataal” – the unforgettable sound from the film ‘Mashaal’ (1950). The words carry a thrill – they have been written by Kavi Pradeep. The music is an uplifting exuberant melody – composed by SD Burman. And voice, the sound of which will make one sit up or even stand up – such is the strong conviction and the deep exhortation that one feels on listening to it – the singing voice is the deep, strong and bass-ful voice of Manna Dey. The song that set this young singer on the path to popularity and success.
