10,000 songs! I’m very glad, that Atul asked me to supply a post for the countdown. Moreover I think it is a very good idea to let us introduce each other, this way, I think the Atulblog family comes to know each other better and also thus come closer. A family, which knows each other better, sings better.

Ava contributes songs on this blog regularly and also is present in the comments section. I met Ava Suri on the blogosphere, at Greta’s or Madhu’s, I can’t remember right now. Then when I started my blog, she started visiting it regularly as well. At this time, I discovered that she herself has three blogs. One is about Hindi movies and songs , the second one is about books, she has read ), and the third, which she doesn’t regularly update, is about her life and events and travels.

June 30th is the date of the publication of Saratchandra Chaterjee’s famous novel Devdas. It was published in 1917, thus we celebrated its 97th birthday on 30 june this year (2014). Devdas has, like no other novel before it or after, captured the imagination of film-makers in India. According to Wikipedia, there have been 16 films based on this story. Two of them have been made in Pakistan and Bangladesh each.

The main male protagonist of the film Namkeen (1982) is the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar), who arrives in the life of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters, and how his arrival changes their lives. He being a truck driver is always on the move, thus Gulzar’s musafir songs suit his character quite well.

Gulzar’s third film, as a director, Parichay (1972) has often been accused of being a copy of The Sound of Music (1963). I think that this is too much of an exaggeration, since the only common thing between the stories of the two films being a teacher, who wins over his unruly wards. That is a common theme enough in films and novels. The whole context and the treatment of the story is completely different. All said and done one can’t deny that the song saa re ke saa re has a similarity to doe a deer. The similarity is not in the tune but in the sense that both songs explain the seven notes of music.

Parichay (1972) was Gulzar’s third film as a director. With this film began a fruitful association with R D Burman, who would henceforth give music nearly to all his films, so long the latter lived. Achanak(1973), Mausam (1977), Meera (1979) and Lekin (1999) being the exceptions.

Namkeen (1982) tells us the story of the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar), who arrives in the life of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters, and how his arrival changes their lives. He falls in love with the elder daughter (Sharmila Tagore), who reciprocates his love. Mitthu (Shabana Azmi) also thinks that he is in love with her and is happy since she has fallen in love with him too. Mitthu, though speech-impaired, writes poems. After Gherulal has gone, she starts spending time in the hills and writing poems. This is one of them.

Namkeen (1982) is the story of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters (Sharmila Tagore, Shabana Azmi and Kiran Vairale), into which the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar) crashes in. This is a flashback song. The old woman recollects her days as a courtesan, and the times when she was in love with her daughters’ father.

With this song Namkeen (1982) makes its debut on this blog. Namkeen is the story of an old woman and her three daughters, as Gulzar says, in their incomplete family (adhooraa saa parivaar). The elder daughter, Nimki (Sharmila Tagore) has passed the age of marriage (Gulzar’s words, not mine), the middle one Mitthu (Shabana Azmi) is speech-impaired and the youngest is Chinki (Kiran Vairale), who is very cheeky. In this family arrives as a paying guest the truck driver Gherulal.
