Hearty greetings to all friends and readers on the celebration of the Raksha Bandhan festival today.

Ok, ok, I know the query springing in your mind. No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth. Very much here, reassuringly. Just that the cycles of fate brought in significant distractions and preoccupation for both Atul ji and myself, at the same time. The postings are just a trickle these days. But things on the personal and work fronts are keeping both of us away. Atul ji has been maintaining the trickle, whereas I have not been able to get anything on to the blog for days on end now. Long stories are often uninteresting, so I will cut it short, and say that days of drought are coming to a close. How soon, you may want to know. Pretty soon, I assure you. ;) Hopeful to see more activity moving forward, and then we should be back to our regular output shortly.

Today is ‘poornima’ of the ‘shraavan maas’ – the full moon day of the month of Saawan, as per the traditional calendar. Today’s celebrations have already been inaugurated by the PM (I mean, Peevesie’s Mom). It is always customary and auspicious to have the inauguration done by senior ranking people of eminence, and today we already have that start. :) The earlier post by her is an interesting fun celebration song from 1987 film ‘Satyamev Jayate’. The PM has commented that we have probably showcased all the well known Raakhi songs already. To this, Atul ji has commented that there still are many more songs to go, for today’s celebration. The special thing about this blog is that we deal with not just the well known, but we also track and trace the obscure and rarely heard songs. And for that, the garden of Hindi film music is still a vast flowering arena, where all sorts of unseen, unheard flowers bloom.

The celebration itself needs no introduction. The origins of today’s festival are lost in history, embedded into our hoary traditions. The events related to today’s celebration are recorded in our scriptures, which tell about its existence and awareness through the histories of not just bygone eras, but also the bygone cycles of creation and destruction of this entire existence.

One of the earliest records of this festival that we find in our scriptures, is related to Vaaman Avatar, the appearance of Lord Vishnu in the incarnation of a small Brahmin child. The time was when the Devatas had lost the battle with the Asuras, and had been turned out of the Swarg Lok. Raja Bali, the king of Asuras, undertook to perform one hundred Yagnas, under the instructions of his teacher, Guru Shukracharya. The completion of this task of one hundred Yagnas would have made Raja Bali invincible, never to be defeated again by anyone. The Devatas, as is their propensity, went to Lord Brahma to save them from this circumstance. Brahma ji took them to Lord Vishnu, who was moved by their beseeching entreaties, and promised to help.

Now Raja Bali was also famous as the greatest philanthropist of his time. It was well known that he would never turn back any one who came to his door, and he would never decline any request that was made to him. On the day of the of the 100th Yagna, Lord Vishnu appeared at the gates of the Yagna-shala, in the form of Vaaman, a small and attractive Brahmin child. The details of what transpired that day are a consuming discourse in values of promise keeping, commitments, truthfulness and a devotees love for the Lord. And it is too detailed to be taken up here. The connection of today’s festival lie in the events that happened thereafter.

The description of the Lord requesting for land measured in three steps is well known. Also known is that when Raja Bali agreed to this request from a short statured child, the Lord transformed Himself into His ‘viraat roop’ and measured the entire universe in two steps. And when he asked Raja Bali where He should now put this third step, Raja Bali bowed his head in front of the Lord and asked Him to measure His third step.

The entire universe, everything contained therein, and now including Raja Bali himself, all became the domain of the Lord. Vishnu ji was so pleased with this sacrifice that He did two things. First, He announced Raja Bali to become the king of the ‘sutala lok’ (the netherworld). Second, He gave a ‘vardaan’ (boon) to Raja Bali, asking him to make a wish. Raja Bali, very wise and intelligent, made a wish that he should have the ‘darshan’ (seeing) of the Lord, the first thing when he wakes up, and the last thing before he goes to sleep, and that he should have His ‘darshan’ whenever he leaves his home, and whenever he returned to his home. Even the Lord himself was amazed at this boon requested by Raja Bali. He said, this would mean that He has to constantly live with Raja Bali. So the Lord took upon himself to be the gatekeeper of the Raja Bali’s palace in ‘sutala lok’. And bound by His own words, He was now committed to be a constant companion of Raja Bali.

Lakshmi ji, the wife of Lord Vishnu, was perplexed and unhappy about this arrangement. Many months passed, and She had not seen Her husband. Then She took the form of an old Brahmin lady and went to ‘sutala lok’, to the palace of Raja Bali, and requested for shelter. Raja Bali received Her as a sister and gave her shelter. After some days, on the ‘shraavan poornima’ day, She tied the sacred thread to the wrist of Raja Bali, establishing firmly the brother-sister relationship. Raja Bali requested Her to ask for a boon. Then She revealed her true identity, and requested Raja Bali to set his ‘gatekeeper’ free from the conditions of His own benefaction. Raja Bali granted the wish, and Lord Vishnu was freed, to return to his ‘Vaikunth Dhaam’. This is one of the various threads of historical narration that tell about the antiquity of this tradition.

This song is from an unheard film from 1943, titled ‘Sahara’. The film is directed by JP Advani for the banner of Vaswani Art Productions, Bombay. The eleven songs in this film are written by four songwriters – Swami Ramanand Saraswati, Nazim Panipati, Qamar Jalaalabaadi and MS Sehrai. This particular song is by MS Sehrai. The music is by Pt Gobindram. The Geet Kosh does not list the names of the singers, and I am not going to hazard a guess on that. I request friends and readers to help identify the female singing voice in this song.

The cast of actors includes Renuka Devi, Narang, Sharda, Pran, Ram Lal, Zahoor Shah, Ibrahim, Mohin etc. Unless I am mistaken, the name ‘Narang’ is the same person as SD Narang, who in later decades became a producer director. Also, one of the very early films of actor Pran.

The song itself is an expression of happiness and joy on the occasion of today’s festival. The lyrics documented below are showing two ‘antaraas’ (stanzas), but the record has three ‘antaraas’. Actually, the third stanza is a repeat of the first, so I have not included in the lyrics.  About the lyrics, there is one short line in the chorus part of the song that I have not been able to fully decipher.  I request friends and readers to help identify the missing words in that line.

Once again, happy wishes to all for today’s celebration of ‘Raakhi’

Song-Moorakh hai insaan bhagwan (Main Aur Mera Bhai)(1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-C Arjun

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

insaan
kitne ae ae yug beete
yoonhi raha naadaan
yoonhi raha naadaan

moorakh hai insaan bhagwan
moorakh hai insaan bhagwan
bure bhale ka gyaan rakhe na
bure bhale ka gyaan rakhe na
apna ganwaaye dekho naam naam naam re
moorakh hai insaan bhagwan
moorakh hai insaan

aap hi chun chun kaante boye
saare kul ki laaj duboye
paap ko man ka bojh na jaane
dharti pal pal phoot ke roye ae
dharti pal pal phoot ke roye
kaisa zamaana aaya raam raam raam re
moorakh hai insaan bhagwan
moorakh hai insaan

dukh bhi jhele
dard bhi paaye
phir bhi paapi baaz na aaye
pag pag bhatke raah na soojhe
man ka andhera badhta jaaye ae
man ka andhera badhta jaaye
khoya ujaala chhaayi shaam shaam shaam re
moorakh hai insaan bhagwan
moorakh hai insaa aa aa aan

Genius of Jaidev – 23
—————————-

After ‘yippifying’ ‘Samundari Daku’ let us attack ‘Anjali’(1957) (Sorry, no attacking, just proceeding with this non-violent film) Chetan Aanand directed this 1957 film under the banner of ‘Kala Kunj Pvt. Ltd.’. He and Nimmi ware the hero-heroine, with the supporting star cast of Sitara, Krishna Dhawan, Sheila Ramani, Sapru, Kumkum, Mehmood, Misra, Kammo, Jagdish Raj, B S Thapa etc. Jaidev composed ten songs for this film, to the lyrics of Nyay Sharma.

Three songs are already posted and discussed in this melodious Blog. I have six songs, including this one, ready with me, which I will present, one by one. I am searching for the remaining one song, ‘Lo Chori Pakadi Gayee’ sung by Asha, Usha and Meena from one family and Sudha Malhotra from Khar, Mumbai. I have requested my musical friends to search it for me and I am hopeful, like last time, to get it before these six songs are posted and done with.

Jaidev has shown his creativity based on Indian Classical music and using Indian musical instruments in this lilting song by Lata. The song seems to be in Mishra Khamaj with touches of Bhairav, at ‘aankhiyaan bairaagi ‘ …(Again, according to MY limited knowledge of Indian Classical music.) Experts may comment and by correcting me help increase my knowledge.


Song-Jiyara Haule Haule Dol (Anjali)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Nyay Sharma, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

jiyara haule haule dol

dooje par pachhtaaye
sun kar meethe bol panchhi
tadap tadap mar jaaye
jiyara haule haule dol
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
kaanta lag jaaye
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
haaye haule haule dol

jiyara haule haule dol

nas nas taar baaje iktaara
birhan koyi raag aag

kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
haaye haule haule dol
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
jiyara haule haule dol

In my childhood and growing years thereafter I was very fond of listening to songs on Radio (Transistor). Other than ‘Binaca Geetmala’, some of the programs that I regularly listened to were S. Kumar’s ka filmi mukaddama, ek hi film ke geet, etc etc.
Other than filmi songs I used to listen mainly to BBC London service for news and especially for news on ‘cricket’ (‘khel samachar’).

Now, on recalling those days, I think that I started with this love for Radio when I was 9/10 yrs old, i.e. from 1977-78. It continued up to 1986 when I bought my first mono-cassette player (Philips). TV had invaded our lives by that time and I think that our first TV- a color Uptron TV- also came in 1986-87.

I make use of technology to ensure that posts appear on the blog like clockwork. The technology involved is commonplace today but it was not available just a few years ago. I take it for granted but one still must have the right equipments to use them. If I forget to take even one of the tools of the trade with me then that will set me back by several years to the era where it will no longer be possible for me to blog the way I have been blogging for the last seven years and more.
