June 6th is Sunil Dutt’s birth anniversary. He was born in 1929, so we celebrate his 86th birthday. His debut film was Railway Platform (1955). The role of the idealist, who wants to change the society, would follow him for most part of the 50s. In 1963 he donned the role of a dacoit Thakur Jarnail Singh, which was quite unusual for the times. In fact, it was sort of an extension of his role in Mother India (1957). Dacoit roles would haunt him for the rest of his career. He did meaningful films, particularly with Chopra brothers in the 60s. His magnum opus Reshma aur Shera (1972) though left him in financial doldrums, which sent him on a film-signing spree throughout the 70s. At first it was to pay back his debts and later for the cancer treatment of his wife. He took leave of his career as a leading man after launching his son in Rocky (1981) with the film Dard Ka Rishta (1982).

With this song the film Dhongee (1976) makes its debut on this blog. I know only this song from this film and remember it from my childhood days, when it used to be played on the radio, on Vividh Bharati to be precise. The YT uploader has erroneously mentioned this movie as a release of 1979.

After celebrating R. D. Burman’s 500th song on the blog with the grand medley of English songs from Bombay to Goa (1972), we are coming to the last song from this movie to be covered on this blog.

The name of the movie suggests that this is a road movie. As usual a road movie needs to have a main character, who undergoes a transformation and realizes his/her past mistakes and comes back to the straight and narrow. The main character of this plot is Mala (Aruna Irani). She is on the run after having witnessed a murder. She boards a bus, which goes from Bombay to Goa.

Whenever this blog reaches a milestone of sorts, we , readers and contributors of this blog, feel a sense of tremendous elation.

It doesn’t matter whether it is a blog post count, or an artist post count. The milestone has been reached, song post by song post. And that means, the audio/video of the song, its full lyrics, its various tags – and a write-up. All of this constitutes ONE song post on this blog. And all of us recognize how fulfilling it is, when we have all these components in place.

And that is why, it is the JOURNEY that we celebrate, as much as the milestone itself. To borrow from a famous song of yesteryear, “raah bani khud manzil…”. :-)

Today, it gives me great pleasure to announce that we have an opportunity to celebrate yet another milestone on this blog. This one relates to an artist who not only revolutionized Hindi film music, he not only won millions of hearts with his compositions during his time, but seems to have only gained in popularity since his death over 20 years ago.

Today is Raja Swaminathan’s second birthday! On this blog, I mean! I don’t know Raja’s age, but what I see and hear from him, he must be very young and very active. As many of you must already know, Raja is a passionate blogger. Yes, passionate is the word, which I would use to describe Raja in one word. Raja is passionate about politics, social politics and not party politics. Yes, he has a keen sense of justice and injustice. He is aware of the many wrong things going on in this world. I admire this quality in him very highly. What I admire about him is also his ability to put all his wonderful thoughts in words. When I sit and torture myself with the composition of each sentence. To him his nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs flow with an ease which would put a bubbling stream to shame. What’s more they flow in perfect syntax. Then he also has a wonderful sense of humour, particularly his PJs are very funny. And going by all his posts and comments on fb, Raja comes across as a very nice person. Now, you must have realized that I have not met him, although I’ve a feeling I already know him quite well. Dearest Raja, please try to always remain the person you are, Happy Birthday!

Today (the 7th of October) is Ava’s birthday. Here is a post celebrating it. I’ve already introduced Ava on this blog at the 10K celebrations. So I can’t add much to what I have already said in that post. Ava frequents this blog as a contributor as well as commentator. Songs are but not her only interest.She is an avid reader, a passionate blogger on themes of Hindi films and she also likes to revel in nostalgia.

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.
