In 1980, I was in Delhi, fresh out of college, working for a firm that manufactured car parts. I stayed with my Aunt in Delhi, the rest of my family being elsewhere. My cousins were BIG music afficionados. They could sing beautifully and had an excellent taste in music.

I already loved the film music of 50s and 60s, so I was also well grounded in my musical tastes. My cousins helped me break out of my Lata/Asha/Rafi/
Kishore mould and develop a taste for singers like Talat, Manna Dey, Begam Akhtar, Kumar Gandharva, Bhimsen Joshi and of course, Jagmohan.

Music Cassettes were just getting popular and I would love to browse in music shops for them. It was a low paying job (Sigh – Story of my Life) and I could not afford to buy a stack of cassettes. But even buying one or two gave me great happiness. I would bring home the cassette and my cousins and I would listen to the tape after dinner, in the silence of the night. There was no television in my Aunt’s house then, hence no distraction.

I had a couple of Talat tapes with me, one was called In a Blue Mood, and the other was called Ghazals to Remember . I was totally under the spell of his silken voice and nothing soothed me as much as an evening spent listening to Talat songs. This Cassette had a song ‘Ae andalib-e-zar’ which I liked particularly.

Andaleeb means Nightingale and Zaar means a Garden and also tears. The poet is asking the Nightingale of the Garden (or Tears) why she is restless. Is it because the Spring is on the wane?

As is the case with all of us music lovers, life overtakes us. I got married and got busy minding my children. For a long long long time, I had no time for anything but my job, my home and my children. I forgot to read, to listen to music, to watch movies. Now that the children are grown up and I am no longer constrained by the ghar-griahasti, being single again, I have time to pursue my interests.

I hunted out this song when its memory hit me all of a sudden one day. YouTube is useful for people of all tastes, and yes, some good souls had uploaded this song as well. I found the song as magical as ever.

During the Anniversary celebrations of this blog, when all the members were being so delightfully introduced (or re-introduced), I read about Khyatiben’s husband being very fond of Talat NFS. This song sprang immediately to my mind and I decided it was time to write it up.

Here is the song. Sung by Talat Mahmood, Music is by Girin Chakrabarty and the lyrics by Raj Meerti. The lyrics are really beautiful, the tune is simple and soulful, Talat spreads the silken web of his voice all over the song.


Song-Ae andleeb e zaar jaane ko hai bahaar (Talat Mehmood NFS)(1950) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Raj Meerty, MD-Girin Chakraborty

Lyrics

Ae andleeb-e-zaar
jaane ko hai bahaar
ae andaleeb-e-zaar
jaane ko hai bahaar
tu kyun hai bekaraar
bata kyun hai bekaraar
tu kyun hai bekaraar
bata kyun hai bekaraar
ae andleeb-e-zaar

is gulsitaan ko dekh
us baaghbaan ko dekh
is gulsitaan ko dekh
tu mujh ko dekh
aur gham-e-do-jahaan ko dekh
tu mujh ko dekh
aur gham-e-do-jahaan ko dekh
main bhi hoon ashqbaar
jo tu hai jigar figaar
jaane ko hai bahaar

ye teri aarzoo
ye teri aarzoo
kitni hai khoobroo
ye teri aarzoo
khwaabon mein bhi jise
hai usi gul ki justajoo
khwaabon mein bhi jise
hai usi gul ki justajoo
aankhon mein jiski baad-e-ulfat ka ho khumaar
jaane ko hai bahaar
ae andaleeb-e-zaar
jaane ko hai bahaar

It is an honor to participate in the celebrations of reaching a great milestone on Atul’s blog. As we know we are close to completing the 10000th post. I am quite sure this concept of posting songs as a collaboration is quite unique to this blog. Unique or not, I like the feeling of being with a family of people who share such similar tastes in music and trivia about music. Congratulations to all of us for this important landmark.

Rakhi Gulzar was born on 15th August 1947. She wasn’t exactly a midnight’s child, but was born a few hours later. She grew up to be a stunningly beautiful woman and an accomplished actress. She had large honey coloured eyes, a round face and lovely features. She debuted in Hindi films with the successful Jeevan Mrityu along with Dharmendra. She went on to establish herself as a successful leading woman with hits like Sharmilee, Paras, Kabhi Kabhie, Daag, Trishul and Doosra Admi (my personal favorite).

“Us Paar” (1974) starring Moushmi Chatterjee and Vinod Mehra was a sweet little film about love between a gypsy girl and young boy living in the village. Their love for each other is sweet and pure. Moushami Chatterjee (Kamli) is engaged to Bhairo (Jalal Agha). Mohan (Vinod Mehra) and Kamli decide to elope as they have no hopes of their love being allowed otherwise.

I am not really qualified to talk at length about Mohammed Rafi. I was lucky to be growing up during the 60s when the best of our music was all around me. Rafi was here, there and everywhere. He ruled the airwaves.

Sometimes you chance upon a song which is not too well known; but is so sweet and captivating, is so well picturised, dance sequence so well executed, that you can’t but help but be utterly charmed by it.

The purists among music lovers often like to keep a cut-off for their listening habits. ‘I don’t listen to songs later than this year,’ they often say. I don’t disagree with those cut-offs. There are times when we just don’t want to listen to the cacophony that our music often descends to. But then, like a proverbial ‘keechad me kamal’ a beautiful song pops up among all this noise. The sufiana songs from the present times are meaningful and pleasing to the ear. The songs written by Gulzar and Javed Akhtar, set to tunes by AR Rahman are beautiful and worth listening to again and again.

By the time 90s came along Hindi movies were getting loud, the heros were mannerless, ill-bred uncouth fellows. Sadak Chhap Romeos with a heart of gold, diamonds in the rough who start out rather badly, but by the end, redeem themselves by doing the right thing.

Sometimes I find it hard to remember when I saw a particular movie. Was I in college or in school? A quick look at the year in which the movie released is the best way to find out.

I came across this beautiful unknown song just today. It is from the movie Sautela Bhai starring Guru Dutt and Raaj Kumar. The beautiful song is set to music by Anil Biswas and the peppy lyrics are by Shailendra. There is almost a mathematical precision to the way the song is arranged, the singers and the chorus sing in a set pattern, after listening to one paragraph you know exactly who is going to sing the refrain, and when the chorus is going to repeat lines. Such patterns are usual in good poetry, and it enhances the rhythm of this song too. A special word for fantastic singing by Manna Dey and Meena Kapoor. Meena’s voice sounds so rich and full, like Geeta Dutt’s. She complements Manna Dey’s amazing voice perfectly.
