The Voice of Mukesh #64
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, coming back to this series after a long gap, a very long gap indeed.  The last episode of this – “Hum Ne Chakkar Kha Kar Dekha”  was posted last year on 23rd June.  And I am returning to it now, after a gap of more than 10 months.  Before I get to the song itself, let me talk about this gap in the proceedings of this series.

This series was initiated in late 2012.  This series came about after an exchange between Atul ji and myself.  The idea is that we would like to bring all songs by Mukesh to this blog.  Atul ji had expressed concern that some of the songs, especially from the 1940s, are not available and are difficult to trace.  And so I took it upon myself to start tracking down the difficult-to-acquire songs.  For the reasons of popularity of this voice, practically all the songs sung by Mukesh are available, somewhere, with someone.  There are some very loyal fans who have the claim that they have all the songs by Mukesh.  Whereas I have found this claim to be not true in most cases, but checking in with multiple such sources, it is possible to get hold of all the Mukesh songs.

As a starting point, the best and the most benevolent such source is Harish ji Raghuvanshi of Surat.  He is the compiler of the Mukesh Geet Kosh.  At one point in time, he had all the songs of Mukesh on cassette.  In my earlier conversations with him, he had shared the news that a fair part of his cassette collection had once got damaged in a water overflow that submerged part of his house.  After that he does not have a complete collection anymore.

After my dialogue with Atul ji, I started to search for the songs from various other sources that I usually depend upon. Surjit Singh ji, Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji, Zafar Bhai, Pradeep Sharma ji, and Bakshish Singh ji are some of the closest friends who have helped me a lot in getting some rare and difficult to get Mukesh songs, and also allowed me to publish them online.  As of now, from the period of 1940s, i.e. from 1944 to 1950, only two songs of Mukesh are not yet on this blog.  The first one is from his very first film ‘Nirdosh’ (1944) – “Tumhin Ne Mujhko Prem Sikhaaya” a duet with Nalini Jaywant.  As per the research available, this song was never released as a gramophone record.  Since the film itself is not available, the chances of getting to listen to this song are not very good.  So far.

The second song is from the 1947 film ‘Laakhon Mein Ek’ – “Aagre Se Odhni Manga De Balma”, a very delightful duet of Mukesh with Shamshad Begum.  I know the question that has popped in your minds already – how come that I know it is a delightful duet.  Well the thing is that I have heard this song.  It is available in the collection of someone who is not yet ready to share it for publishing online.  Unless another 78 rpm record of this song surfaces, we have to wait for that person to allow its posting.  I am working on it.  :)

The first episode of this series was posted on 6th October, 2012.  Between then and 23rd June 2014, I have posted 62 songs of Mukesh plus one song being contributed by Sadanand ji, from the period of 1944 – 1950, which were not available on our blog.  Some of them were available online, and simply did not find their way here.  But many of them were not available online and I uploaded them from my collection and from the collections of the above named collector friends.  In this process, and with the help of Harmandir ji and Harish ji, we were also able to identify some songs that are originally not listed even in Mukesh Geet Kosh.  As more and more information surfaced after the publication of the Mukesh Geet Kosh, Harish ji and Harmandir ji were able to track down a few more songs.  These additional songs are also now posted on our blog.

So the original target of completing the period from 1944 – 1950, is almost completely done, with the exception of the two songs that I have mentioned above.  Having reached that target, there came a lull, as my focus and attention also got diverted to other similar endeavors.  But coming back to think of the original premise – that we should have all Mukesh songs on the blog, I once again bring my attention to the list of songs in the years 1951 onwards, and make an effort to complete the list progressively.

In the first half of the decade of 1950s, we see a fewer number of songs in this voice.  Reason – Mukesh took upon a fancy for becoming a singing star, and in this period, his attention and energies were diverted to production and acting – ‘Malhaar’ in 1951, ‘Maashooqa’ in 1953 and ‘Anuraag’ in 1956.  In the period of six years from 1951 to 1956, we see barely 60 songs sung by Mukesh, at an average of 10 songs a year.  If we compare this with the previous six years period, we see more than 145 songs in a six year period from 1945 to 1950.  Arguably, this distraction is a significant factor that Mukesh never really got back into the industry as a lead singer in the films, except for Raj Kapoor’s films.  In 1950-51 when he decided focus on film making and acting, his output and popularity were on a steep rise.  To put in perspective, the 145 songs that I mentioned for the period of 1945 to 1950, of these, more than one hundred are from the three year period 1948 – 49 – 50.  The numbers tell a story of a misjudged diversion, and the history of the Hindi film song could have been very different.  Alas, but what is, is.  Destiny is the only one who knows it all, human beings don’t.

So as I started to scan the listed songs against the songs published on the blog, I see that we have already covered the years 1951 – 52 – 53.  Then in 1954 is the first gap that we find.  Now starting to fill up these gaps, this is the first song of the second phase of this series.  The film is ‘Hanuman Janam’.  It is produced by MS Pathak and Durgadas for Rani Productions, Bombay and is directed by Raja Nene.  The cast of actors includes Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Paro, Miky, Uma Dutt, Kanta Kumari, Raj Adeeb, MS Phatak, Jugnu, Lily Kelkar, Alka, Raj Sehgal, Mohini, Avtar Kishan, Lalit Kapoor, Meera, S Prakash, Meenu, and Chandabai.  The eight songs in this film are written by SP Kalla and the music direction is by Hansraj Behl.  The film makes its debut on the blog today.

Picking up the journey of Mukesh once again, let us listen to this song that is philosophical and inspirational.  The more one listens to this voice, the more one continues to marvel at how it infuses a vibrancy into any song.  This song being no exception.
Listen and Enjoy.


Song – Sukh Dukh Ke Donon Paaon Par (Hanuman Janam) (1954) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – SP Kalla, MD – Hansraj Behl

Lyrics

sukh dukh ke
donon paaon par
insaan ye chalta jaata hai
sukh dukh ke donon paaon par
insaan ye chalta jaata hai
mann kaahe ko ghabraata hai
mann kaahe ko ghabraata hai

dukh jeevan ki ek kasauti
dukh jeevan ki ek kasauti
mann ko parkhaa jaata hai
angaaron se tap kar sona
nayi chamak le aata hai
nayi chamak le aata hai
sukh dukh ke donon paaon par
insaan ye chalta jaata hai

andhiaara aanchal mein apne
chhipa ujaala laata hai
dekho din ko jo raaton ka
cheer kaleja aata hai
cheer kaleja aata hai
sukh dukh ke donon paaon par
insaan ye chalta jaata hai

jo dukh se ghabraa kar apna. . . haan
jo dukh se ghabraa kar apna
jeevan deep bujhaata hai
wo kaayar apne hi haathon
apne paap badhaata hai
apne paap badhaata hai
sukh dukh ke donon paaon par
insaan ye chalta jaata hai

सुख दुख के
दोनों पाँव पर
इन्सान ये चलता जाता है
सुख दुख के दोनों पाँव पर
इन्सान ये चलता जाता है
मन काहे को घबराता है
मन काहे को घबराता है

दुख जीवन की एक कसौटी
दुख जीवन की एक कसौटी
मन को परखा जाता है
अंगारों से ताप कर सोना
नई चमक ले आता है
नई चमक ले आता है
सुख दुख के दोनों पाँव पर
इन्सान ये चलता जाता है

अँधियारा आँचल में अपने
छिपा उजाला लाता है
देखो दिन को जो रातों का
चीर कलेजा आता है
चीर कलेजा आता है
सुख दुख के दोनों पाँव पर
इन्सान ये चलता जाता है

जो दुख से घबरा कर अपना॰ ॰ ॰हाँ
जो दुख से घबरा कर अपना
जीवन दीप बुझाता है
वो कायर अपने ही हाथों
अपने पाप बढ़ाता है
अपने पाप बढ़ाता है
सुख दुख के दोनों पाँव पर
इन्सान ये चलता जाता है

“Sone Pe Suhaaga”, as we say in India.  First it was the momentous 10K milestone in July last year (20 Jul 2014).  Then a little while ago, on the close of the previous financial year (31 Mar, 2015) we had the auspicious and ‘Badhaai Waala” 11K milestone. And then today, we have the next level ‘1’ added, taking the auspiciousness and ‘badhaai’ to the next level on the scale.

Welcome all to the next important century milestone on this blog.  After we had the invasion of the blog by an army of eleven thousand young ladies, I mean, after the “Gyaarah Hazaar Ladkiaan” made their auspicious and enchanting appearance a little over a month ago, we have added another 100 wonderful songs to bag of magic that this blog is now transforming into. This segment has been relatively slower, taking exactly thirty two days to complete this leg of the journey. Of course we have an excuse for it.  But we are not going to talk about it today.  Maybe someday later, hopefully sooner than later.  But not today.  After getting over with the customary greetings and welcome and congratulations, I want to talk about a friend, a very dear friend.  And in our lingua-franca, the term ‘a dear friend’ evidently implies a lover of music.

No other month begins with a day that is named after itself.  It is only the month of May that starts with a day that is called May Day.  Historically, this specific day has a long history of cultural and social significance.  A history that goes back to pre-Christ era.  The Romans used to celebrate this day as a spring festival.  The festival was called Floralia, in the honor of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  Further north, in Germany, this day was celebrated as Walburgis Night.  Coinciding with the arrival of summer weather in the European continent, this day was also celebrated as the first day of summer in some regions.  Community fairs were held, with the traditional dancing around the Maypole, and the beauty contest to select and crown the ‘Queen of May’.  People used to distribute anonymous gifts, called May Baskets, in their neighborhoods.

Mention of the name Mohammed Shafi brings to mind some timeless and peerless classics.  The immortal lorie song “Koi Pukare Dhire Se Tujhe” from ‘Mangu’ (1954), is a composition that is difficult to forget.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The write up on this music director by AK ji (see here) opens with the lead in comment, that “. . . his music towers over his films”.  I am whole heartedly in agreement with this comment.  As he goes on to say that just “. . . one song of his – “Paas Baitho Tabiyat Bahal Jaayegi” (‘Punarmilan’, 1964) sung by Rafi Sb is enough to give him immortality.”  And then one reviews the list of films with him as the music director – ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961), ‘Punar Milan’ (1964), ‘Ek Saal Pehle’ (1965), ‘Chale Hain Sasural’ (1966), ‘Suhsila’ (1966) aka ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ (1977), and then of course the iconic ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975) – the film that gave its run for the money, in a stiff competition to the big time grosser of the same year (viz. ‘Sholay’), and still continues to be on the list top grossing films of all time.  About two decades of active work in the industry, with just sixteen films listed against his name.  But then, as AK ji says, it is just one song that confers immortality on him.

The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Listening to songs like this one, there are mixed feelings in the heart.  There is a pleasant joyous feeling that such wonderful sounds from almost eight decades ago, are available  and we can hear and enjoy them.  There is also a regretful irritation, almost bordering on frustration as to why more such songs are not available.  Why is it that all one can search and explore, and just one song is available from this film, and from many others.  And for many more, even one song is not traceable.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 4
—————————————————–

Almost ‘Lolita’, but not quite so.  In the book, the young nympho is only 12 years old, and the old man is actually a pedophile.  In this Hindi film take off, the young girl is 18, and the old man is not a pervert, but is actually in love. And for all that matters, for all the time it matters, it is a two way love between the girl and the old man.

Around the time this film was relased, a joke was doing the rounds. Q: What is the height of good luck?  A: Amitabh in ‘Nishabd’.

         Bombay Gangout – Part 5
         The Day After.

The next day to the gangout meeting, we had plans for a visit to our dear Arun ji.  As the readers may be aware, Arun ji had not attended the gangout meeting.  The personal family circumstances in the recent past, had been exigent to the extreme.  His life partner had passed away just 10 days prior to the scheduled meeting.  We had decided to go ahead with the meeting, sans his participation.

Remembering Shamshad Begum on the second anniversary of her passing away (23rd April 2013). Born in Lahore on 14th April 1919, Shamshad Begum had an inclination towards singing right from her school days. Her school principal impressed with her singing, made her sing the classroom prayers, something which Naushad captilised elegantly in ‘Dard’ (1947) for a group song.

The film ‘Jwala’ was started sometimes in the second half of 1950s.  It was finally released in 1970, a year after the passing away of Madhubala.  As with some of her last films, this film also has deficient and compromised editing, and possible use of a double in some scenes, just to try and complete the storyline.  But forever, this will be known as her last released film.
