A DAY OF JOY- TO REMEMBER FOR EVER !

In a Man’s life, there are occasions of happiness like Graduation, Job, marriage, First child etc. These are the milestones in one’s life and are celebrated with joy shared by the near and dear ones.

Today I too feel like celebrating because ” OUR ” Blog has touched a milestone- THE 10,000th SONG !

My heartiest Congratulations to ATUL ji, who is doing a great job. I feel his must be the only Blog on the entire Internet, which can boast of 10,000 Hindi film and non film songs (from 1932 onwards), with proper Lyrics. This is a place for Nostalgia, for thousands of Music lovers from almost 200 countries of the World.

I feel not only Happy, but also proud that I am a part of the Team which contributes to this Blog. With over 300 articles, over 500 Film stories and more that 500 information Tit bits on almost every topic related to old films/music, I feel like the famous Mythological Squirrel in the Ramayana.

Thank you Atul ji for providing a platform, where the group could showcase their skills in posting songs, lyrics and articles, thereby contributing to the efforts of making this Blog-A Complete Knowledge portal for Hindi film songs.

In 2010, when I learnt operating Computer, while surfing to find sites for free downloading, I bumped into this site. I was impressed with the kind of songs and the style of operating so much that I have stayed here since then. Slowly I started giving my comments on songs and in Sept. 2012,Atul ji encouraged me to write an article post for the Blog. My first post came up here on 1-10-2012.

This Blog has changed my life for the better. I never had a problem of spending time after retirement, but writing and participating on this blog filled me with a new enthusiasm and I became a busy person. At times, I overdo this and then suffer in health. It has always been a pleasure to share knowledge with interested people. When I read that people are liking my writing, I feel contented. The thanks go to Atul ji, undoubtedly.

So, ATUL ji, thank you once again and heartiest Congratulations for achieving this Milestone of 10,000 songs. May God bless you to succeed always in your endeavour.

On this happy occasion, I wish to introduce our readers to a Singer from the yesteryears. He was unique. He was patriotic. He was MASTER VASANT AMRIT of Surat.

Most of our readers will not know who this person is. Our senior readers from Gujarat MAY have heard his name in their younger days. Master Vasant was a singer from Gujarat, who became famous all over Indian subcontinent, just because of ONE song. This song was one of the most popular songs in the pre-independence period. It was banned by the British raj, but it was sung by patriotic people privately.

Master Vasant was born on 2-2-1902, at Jaam Khambaliya, in Gujarat. His father was Amritlal Madan ji. They were Saraswat Bramhins. His father was a Keertankar from ‘Adityaram gharana’. He had learnt under Pt. onkarnath ji. Well versed in Gujarati,Sanskrit and Urdu literature,he was a voracious reader.Amritlal taught young Vasant how to play instruments. he was taught classical music and Hari Keertan.

Young Vasant became the ” Rajgayak ” of Jaamnagar state. He was awarded the title of ‘ Sangeet Ratna’ for his singing. Thousands of people would gather to listen to his singing.

He used to sing in special occasions like marriages etc in the Royal family, and in such cases the guards used to have a tough time to control the surging crowds gathered to see and hear his singing. Maharaja of Bhavnagar too awarded him the title of ‘ Sangeet Bhasker “.

His singing became so famous that his stage shows were arranged from Rangoon to Karachi. In 1936-37,he was specially invited to sing before Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira ji in Rangoon.

Many records of his singing were popular like, ‘Idhar sudama udhar kanhiaya’, ‘mathura mein sahi-Gokul mein sahi ‘, ‘ Phool rahi hai belariya’, ‘Do din ka Mela’ and many more. His most famous and popular song was ” Meri mata ke sar par Taaj rahe”. It was written in 1928 by shri Madhav ji Shukla Moradabadwale. The song became famous and thousands of records were sold everywhere. It became a Patriot’s favourite everywhere. It was sung during the Prabhat pheris too. This information reached the British Government and they decided to ban this song as it contained words like Gandhi ji and Vande Mataram. Orders were issued and the officers reached the Gramophone company and the original Dye Negative of this record was destroyed. Further all records in the markets were confiscated and ” possessing, singing or playing this record ” became a serious crime against the Government. However.the patriots used to play and listen to this song within closed doors.

The ban, declared in 1930 was lifted in or around 1945, with the efforts of Kanhiayalal Munshi ji. But then soon ,in 1947, the country became Independent and the song and the record were soon forgotten.

Due to his singing skills and good looks, he was offered several films, but he acted only in one Bilingual film- ‘ Krishnabhakta Bodana”-1944 in Gujarati and Hindi.The Heroine of this film was Rani Premlata. In the Hindi film he sang 3 songs- 1. Jaan liya pehchan liya 2. Main chor bana Prabhu tera and 3. Saari daaliyon mein meethi ek daali. This was his only connection with the film world.

There was another actor named Vasant, so he always wrote his name as Master Vasant Amrit to avoid confusion. After retirement he lived in Surat with his wife and widowed sick sister. His financial condition was not good. In those days singers did not get Royalty from HMV, they got paid lump sum way once only. He was getting a meagre pension from the Gujarat Government. His health also deteriorated and in 1985, he was paralysed below waist making him a handicap for ever.

Famous writer and winner of five sahitya academy awards, shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji traced him to a society in Surat, in Bungalow no. 3 of a society on Varachha Road. This too needed lot of efforts and contacting many friends for information. When this news was published in local papers, some help poured in. When he actually met Master Vasant and saw his condition,he decided to do something about it. Pandyaji spoke to Gujarat Chief Minister Chimanbhai Patel to grant an award of Rs. 1 lakh to master Vasant. This scheme of finacial assistance to senior artists was already in existence in Gujarat. The CM, after listening to the condition of Master Vasant agreed immediately and gave orders accordingly. But alas ! The crude bureaucracy of the Govt. has its own wishes and speed. Nothing moved and after some time Pandyaji again took up the issue at the officer level. promises given, but no action.

Master Vasant was getting older and nearing his last days. Pandyaji took lot of efforts through the CM again and many related officers. He wanted that before master Vasant dies, he should get the help. In the month of January 1991, master Vasant was admitted in Hospital for the last time. Fortunately, due to Pandyaji’s untiring efforts, Master Vasant finally got his money, with all arrears etc, by a special courier who gave the amount to him personally. Master Vasant was happy and blessed shri Pandya ji from heart. Within next 4 days MASTER VASANT AMRIT OF SURAT died and a legend came to an end, on 19-1-1991.

Shri Rajanikumar Pandya ji has written all this in details and in his inimitable flowing style, in his book ” Aapki Parchhainyan “. When I was reading his description, tears were rolling down my eyes. My mind was filled with disgust towards Government’s apathy in looking after artistes who had made that state Proud. But for the unstinted and selfless efforts of shri Pandya ji,Master Vasant would have never got any help before his death ! My hats off to shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji.

Well,I thought that today’s celebrations call for an equally important song, which was the favourite of patriots before Independence. So,here is the once famous song” Meri maata ke sar par Taj rahe” sung soulfully by MASTER VASANT AMRIT ji.

(My thanks to shri Rajnikumar Pandyaji for his article and other materials which he sent to me,Harish Raghuvanshi ji for information,dates of b & d,and the original song in MP3,and to Atul ji for uploading it on You Tube).

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 10) Last song of the series
———————————————————-

In the early 40s through the mid 60s, Radio was the only common entertainer for every household. Of course the choice of Gramophone was also there, but only few people could afford to own a gramophone. I remember, our morning used to open with melodious Bhajans from the Radio. Those days’ Mumbai Radio Station’ ( from the beginning, it was called Mumbai Radio station only-not Bombay anytime. For Hindi service it was Bambai) used to start early at 5.30 a.m. It first played Shehnai and then very sweet Bhajans, for an hour or so. That is how Juthika Roy and D.V.Paluskar’s names were etched on the memory card for ever. To listen to their bhajans was a divine experience.

THE JOY OF NFS(Song No. 9)
——————————-

Manna Dey never achieved the kind of popularity that some of his more commercially successful contemporaries (Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh etc) enjoyed, but that in no way is a reflection on Manna Dey’s calibre as a singer. As a singer he had perhaps the widest range of them all. He could sing songs ranging from philosophical to comical with equal felicity. In his case, passage of time has helped enhance his reputation.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 8)
——————————-

Sachin Dev Burman was a titan amongst composers and singers of songs for Indian films and outside of them. Born on October 01 1906 in Comilla, about 100 kilometers from Dhaka Bangladesh, Sachin Dev Burman was a scion of the princely family of Tripura, now a state of India. His noble lineage is reflected in the grace of his musical creations spanning a period of 43 years until his death in Bombay in 1975.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 7)
——————————
The word Non Film Song brings few names to mind immediately, like Jagmohan, Saigal, Kamala Jharia, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullick etc. I could never understand the reason and logic behind most NFS singers hailing from the Eastern part of India. Even Talat Mehmood went to Calcutta and sang all his famous NFS.

THE JOY OF NFS(SONG NO. 6)
——————————————–

City- Bombay
Date- 20th July 1972
Place- Harkissondas Hospital,Bombay

Few people were standing in the corridor . Anxiety, sorrow, helplessness and a little hope was clearly writ large on their faces. They were all quiet. No one was talking to anyone. Their body language gave away their agony and restlessness.

THE JOY OF NFS (song No. 5)
———————————

Somewhere in the late 2011, AK ji of Songsofyore, had written on this Blog about the importance of NFS. After reading his views, I too wrote a rather lengthy comment supporting the inclusion of NFS on this Blog. Our contention was that, prior to the Hindi Film Music becoming popular all over India, it was those gazals, Geets and Bhajans, privately sung and recorded by various artists which had ruled the tastes of music lovers. In fact many famous singers had recorded NFS in the beginning phase of their singing careers. Some names are Talat Mehmood, Saigal, Pankaj Mullik, Jagmohan and JUTHIKA ROY !

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 4)
——————————-

From my house towards Juhu, there is a building at the corner of Gulmohar Circle which has a board-” Karachi Residents’ Association”. On enquiry I discovered that this was a building owned by ( Sindhi speaking Hindu and Muslims) people who resided in Karachi before Partition. I was told that 5-6 such buildings exist all over Mumbai. On further enquiries, I was informed that there were a few buildings of ” Lahore Residents Association” also( Punjabi speaking Hindus and Muslims). When I met one of the residents of ” Lahore” wala building, that old gentleman was speaking so lovingly about old Lahore that I was surprised. Even after 65 years of Partition, these people had such fondness for Lahore…or Karachi, for that matter.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 3)
—————————–

Believe it or not, but there is some kind of an unseen hand of Destiny that shapes Human life. In film industry, one can see very strange cases. Some people gracefully retire, when they are on Top of their careers and some have to retire because there is no work for them. Some people join the industry in a department of their choice,but Destiny changes their life and they end up working and succedding in an entirely different field of activity.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 2)
——————————–

When films started ‘ Talking’, the industry needed actresses who could look good and sing well. Already hard pressed to get girls from educated respectable families, the producers turned to professional singers (Tawayafs) or the Courtesans. These girls knew Hindi/Urdu well, were trained in singing and were experts in handling people. They could and actually did replace the Anglo Indian girls, who had been in the industry since the Silent era, but who found it difficult to talk or sing in Hindi/Urdu. There were some enterprising Anglo Indian girls like Sabita Devi or Irina Gasper, who learnt speaking Hindi and singing just to continue their careers successfully. Later on she made a Hit pair with Motilal in many films, starting with Shehar ka jaadu-1934.
