Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

         Bombay Gangout – Part 5
         The Day After.

The next day to the gangout meeting, we had plans for a visit to our dear Arun ji.  As the readers may be aware, Arun ji had not attended the gangout meeting.  The personal family circumstances in the recent past, had been exigent to the extreme.  His life partner had passed away just 10 days prior to the scheduled meeting.  We had decided to go ahead with the meeting, sans his participation.

Bharat Bhai, Khyati Ben, Sadanand ji and myself – we coordinated to arrive at the Versova Metro station at around 10.30 am.  Bharat Bhai traveled directly from his residence, which is connected with Versova, on the metro line.  Sadnand ji and Khyati Ben coordinated to meet at Borivali, then travel to Andheri via the local train, and then change over to Metro line.  I followed the same method, except that coming from Santa Cruz where I was staying, I took the local train in the opposite direction.  Getting on to the metro and then traveling to Versova – it was a very nostalgic experience for me.  A while back, in 1987-88, when I had started working with the Tatas (their erstwhile software engineering unit TUL – Tata Unisys Ltd.), I was posted in Bombay to start with.  The office was in Andheri (East) in an area that is called ‘SEEPZ’, which, if I recall correctly, stands for Sant Cruz Electronic Export Promotion Zone.  This was located just after the MIDC Complex (Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation) in Marol area.  For a major part of my stay in Bombay, I was staying in Andheri (West), in the Versova area, in a flat that I had rented from an office colleague, who was then stationed abroad on a project.  Getting that flat was a providential blessing – that was my first real stay in Bombay.  Stay as in living for an extended period of time, as opposed to visiting, which I had done on numerous occasions in the past.  That experience was a culture shock, as well as a wonderful lesson of life.  I will be covering that experience in the next post in this series.

So coming back to the nostalgia part, the short trip from Andheri station to Versova going by JP Road, was a reminder of my daily back and forth trip from my place of stay to the TUL office.  A lot had changed.  Of course the trip itself was happening many meters up in the air, as compared to the daily trip earlier, in BEST buses and or three wheeler auto rickshaws, all driving very much on the terra firma at the ground level.  But the route was same.  As the metro wended its way to Versova, I could see that lot of the skyline had changed.  Lot of landmarks that I was familiar with – some were still there, and many were changed.  It was a short trip down the memory lane, that tickled the strings of my heart, as I recalled the months that I had spent in this area, with memories mostly sweet.  Anyway, I will come back to that later.

So the four gang members landed up and met at the Versova station.  Bharat Bhai, who had earlier visited Arun ji, guided us as to the direction to take.  Arun ji’s residence is just a walking distance from the metro station.  So we walked, and enquired on way, and reached Jyoti Apartments.  As we were entering, I just happened to look across the road, and lo, I could see the Avinash Apartments complex where I had stayed for almost a year, and I could see the very apartment on the 4th floor where I lived.

We went towards block B in Jyoti Apartments.  In response to our call to him, Arun ji was waiting for us at the window of his first floor apartment, and guided us to the correct gate to enter.  We went up and reached his apartment B-13.

It was a very emotional encounter, especially for Khyati Ben and myself.  It would be the first time that the two of us were meeting Arun ji, and the circumstances could not have been more solemn and subdued.  It was a traditional greeting, touching his feet, and then I held him in my hug for a long time.  Any other occasion, I am sure there would have been some lively exchange on his “jet black” moustache, but it was not to be so that day.

We entered and we settled down in the study area, where Arun ji works on his computer, generating the many hundreds of posts that he has added to the blog.  The bookshelf just next to his work table, is full of books and notebooks.  Notebooks in which he stores his memories in writing.  His daughters were also present, and we were briefly introduced.

We talked about his loss and the current family situation.  Arun ji was quite composed and assured us that he is doing ok.  Yes, the loss is surely extreme, but then life is such.  One pauses and grieves for the loss, but then also one takes the next breath, the next step and the life continues.  Altered in some ways, but the relentless clock continues to tick and the life has to go on.

Next, we talked about the gangout meeting from the previous day.  Arun ji was very keen to know the details, and between the four of us, we gave him a fairly good briefing, on the gangout proceedings.  That was a lively discussion, as the four of us were quite keen to review the previous days program, and Arun ji, on his part was equally keen to know about how the day went.

It was a good almost couple of hours that we had spent there, sharing, reminiscing, discussing and reviewing, the program and events of the previous day.  It was a very lively session, as we all sat and discussed.  I assure you that being in the presence of Arun ji, is completely a wonderful experience.  Ah yes, I did mention to him that I had been living across the road from him for almost a year.  And then Arun ji in turn informed us that he had already moved into Jyoti apartments around 1985 or so, very well in time.  And so, the two of us have been neighbors for many months in the years 1987-88.  Just that, at that time, we did not holler across the road, checking into lyrics and songs information.  :)

Time came, and we had to take leave.  With sentiments still fresh in the hearts, we bade good bye to Arun ji.

The subsequent plans were that Nalin ji Shah, invited us all to his flat, for a brief get together.  Bharat Bhai took leave, as he had other things to attend to.  So, Khyati Ben, Sadanand ji and myself, we took the three wheeler auto rickshaw and via th Juhu Road, we traveled to Santa Cruz, to Nalin ji’s apartment.  As a gracious host, he had prepared ‘bataka pao’ for a lunch savory.  As we reached his place, the phone call exchange confirmed that Ranjan Sain had already reached and was waiting for us.  Ranjan ji is the cousin of Manju Amarnath Das, and a nephew to the producer director K Amarnath.

And thus followed a very lively session for the rest of the afternoon, at Nalin ji’s residence.  To start with, he recounted and reminisced about the numerous get togethers that had happened at the very place where were now sitting – gatherings that were attended by the stalwart artists of the industry, all friends of Nalin ji.  People like Kavi Pradeep, Anil Biswas, Indeevar, Rajkumari, Jairaj, Qamar Jalaalabaadi, Meena Kapoor, Bulo C Rani, Nini Majumdar, Sudha Malhora, and more.  He shared anecdotes from such gatherings.  The group had a lot of eager queries and Nalin ji recounted the things he knew.  Somehow, being a person with whom others simply confide, he carries in his head a lot of things that are proverbially from the horse’s mouth.  And some of them, he is not able to share.

Nalin ji’s apartment is also an interesting curio’s place.  There are rare photographs, rare books and records, some of them signed by the artists themselves.  Being a journalist, his habit is to collect and catalog documents and artifacts.  In fact he has original documents from the past, that have historical importance for the interested folks.  He recounted how met the family members of Saigal Sb, of music director Husnlal, Anil Biswas himself, OP Nayyar himself, Naushad Sb himself, and many more.  And with each such encounter, his collection of documents, photographs and artifacts became richer.

We also turned to Ranjan ji, and requested him to recount his memories of being the nephew of the great producer director.  He recounted the gala days when K Amarnath was a name that spelt success in the industry, and the also told about the days when his popularity and status waned, the episodes and events not all that happy anymore.

As we were talking, Nalin ji wandered away into another room. He returned after a few minutes, carrying in his hand, what looked like a large register.  This is his scrapbook, one of the many volumes that has prepared, to store the documents and photographs – a partial record of the history of the film industry itself.  He had the register opened at a particular place and he showed it to us and to Ranjan ji in particular.  Ranjan ji almost jumped up with joy.  What Nalin ji was displaying was a document that is the original contract document by which K  Amarnath retained the services of music director Shyam Sunder for the film ‘Alif Laila’ (1953).  This is an important document for Manju ji, and her archival web page for her father, producer director K Amarnath.  He requested for a copy, and Nalin ji promptly promised to send a scanned copy via email.

The string of interesting episodes continue to flow.  However, we came to a time when sitting any later would have been difficult for most of those present.  So we decided to close the session.  Ranjan ji, Khyati Ben and Sadanand ji took leave and departed.  It had been a very lively session.

So with this post, we have now documented all the events related to the gangout and the other outings of the gang members on the 21st and 22nd of December, 2014.

For this post, I present this lively song from the 1966 film ‘Gogola’, starring Azad, Tabassum, Rani, Paulson, Niyampalli, Habeeb, Bhale Rao, Sharma, and Chander K.  The songs of this film are written by Baalkavi Bairaagi and the music is by Roy Frank.  The singing voice is that of Mahendra Kapoor. It seems as if  the creators of this song tried to recreate an aura of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Jeena Yahaan” (‘CID’, 1956).  Tried, but have been able to get just a shadow of that classic. However, the song does take you on a trip from Boribunder in the extreme south, to Borivali in the north.  Another suggestion of a new category – ‘searching for love’.

A fun song, reasonably good.  Listen and enjoy.

Song – Boribunder Se Borivali Dekh Li Maine Gali Gali (Gogola) (1966) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Balkavi Bairaagi, MD – Roy Frank

Lyrics

boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali

railon mein dekha
melon mein dekha
chhail chhabeele chhailon mein dekha
caron mein dekha
thelon mein dekha
kaarkhaanon mein dekha
jailon mein dekha
nahin mili par nahin mili
boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali

sau sau baar samandar dekha
chidiya ghar ke andar dekha
bhaalu dekha
bandar dekha
overbridge ke under dekha
nahin mili par nahin mili
boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali

batua khoyea
jeb kataaya
terylene ka pant ganwaaya
isey pataaya usey pataaya
bhookhon reh kar weight ghaaaya
nahin mili par nahin mili
boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali
dekh li maine gali gali
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
meri saanwri mujhe nahin mili
boribunder se borivali

बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली

रेलों में देखा
मेलों में देखा
छैल छबीले छैलों में देखा
कारों में देखा
ठेलों में देखा
करखानों में देखा
जेलों में देखा
नहीं मिली पर नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली

सौ सौ बार समुंदर देखा
चिड़िया घर के अंदर देखा’
भालू देखा
बंदर देखा
ओवर ब्रिज के अंडर देखा
नहीं मिली पर नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली

बटुआ खोया
जेब कटाया
टैरीलीन का पैंट गंवाया
इसे पटाया उसे पटाया
भूखों रह कर वेट घटाया
नहीं मिली पर नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली
देख ली मैंने गली गली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
मेरी सांवरी मुझे नहीं मिली
बोरिबंदर से बोरीवली

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 3
—————————————————–

There is something very special about his voice.  Not that other thespians of the industry are any way less impressive.  Every actor and actress have their own unique styles and expressions, and many of them have become memorable across the decades.  The sounds and the words sometimes combine together to leave such an imprint on the mind of the audiences, that certain dialogues of certain artists become popular and become part of the current idiom.

The Voice of Mukesh #60
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Returning once again to 1950, to capture this absolute riot of an eccentric qawwaali. Very clear that a bunch of young men are having a complete time out and the result of the fun being had is expressed in such outlandish verses that say

us waqt khushi se dil mera
aankhon mein utarne lagta hai
jab kaali surat par wo
makeup lagaa kar nakhraa karte hain

and

ae meri mohabbat ki motor
garij se nikal kar road pe aa

Greetings to all as we celebrate today the 66th anniversary of independence of this nation. Over the years, we have enjoyed many songs, published on this blog and many not yet showcased here. Songs that celebrate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism, songs that celebrate the event of freedom for this nation on this day. The flavors and the moods of these songs vary a lot. From serious songs of nationalism, from songs that talk of struggles and martyrdom, from songs that exhort their audience to rise and protect, to the songs that celebrate the honor of this land and its people, to the songs that express joy of freedom, and songs that inspire hard work and nation building. So many poets have written such a variety of verses. Every Independene Day and Republic Day we post 6 to 8 songs, and yet there seems to be a treasure of such songs that is out there, still to be discovered.

Collecting information from forgotten artists is extremely difficult. First problem is to find them. Many yesteryear actors who are still alive are living in anonymity. People who live around them also may not know their identity, many times. If they are members of CINTAA (Cine and TV Artists’ Association, Mumbai), one may get their addresses, but some actors do not even inform CINTAA, when they shift.
