LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…Song No. 12…LAST SONG OF THIS SERIES
———————————————————————————–

Today’s song is a real Gem in this series. In the period 1931 to 1940, there were only 7 unreleased films, out of which information is available on the records of only 3 films. This is/may be because though having records for the film songs issued commercially had started from 1932, it had not caught momentum till late 30s. Madhuri-1932 was the FIRST film for which commercial records were issued with the Film and Singer’s name mentioned on the Record label. Obviously, this film ‘Stove Tragedy’ whose song we are going to enjoy today, must have been made after 1932.

The record information gives the singer’s name as ‘ Miss Sitara’. Now,if you scan HFGK, you will find names of singers like Sitara, Miss Sitara, Sitara Devi, Sitara(Agra) and Sitara Kanpuri. One may wonder if all these Sitaras were one or different persons.

As far as Sitara Kanpuri is concerned, she was a different person. Sitara Kanpuri or Sitara of Kanpur or Sitarabai Kanpurwali was born in Cawnpore(Kanpur-UP) in 1923 in a courtesan’s family and so her father’s name is not known.

She did not have formal schooling, but sang wonderfully. she started singing on Radio. She was an expert in Bhajans,Thumari and Gazals.

W.Z.Ahmed, who was also from Kanpur heard about her singing, heard her once and took her to his office in Bombay. She was so excited that without delay, she put her thumb on the contract put forth.The contract restricted her to sing only for Ahmed’s Shalimar studio productions for 10 years. She sang her first song,’nagari meri kab tak’ in Mann ki jeet-1944 for Neena ( real name Shahida-she was the wife of the brother of Renuka Devi the actress. She was a plain simple house wife,who was lured by Ahmed and made actress Neena and his wife), who was Ahmed’s wife.later she also sang in prithwiraj sanyukta-46 and Meerabai-47.In the free times she was allowed to do private jalsa for her living.

After Partition, Ahmed and Neena left for Pakistan, taking with them the prints of their films(like most others who left India) and Sitara was free to sing free lance now. She sang in Pugree-48, Aparadhi-49 and Rasheed Dulhan -50.

After this she simply vanished into thin air !

Barring just one song from Film ” Vaasanti-1938″, Singer Sitara (Agra) does not appear in the HFGK again(E&OE)- obviously she was a classical singer from Agra.

Talking about the other varieties of Sitaras,I started a search and looked into the interview of Dancer,singer,actress Sitara Devi published in Sharma ji’s Blog ” Beete Hue Din.blogspot.com “. She has recounted the names of her initial films in the interview. Referring to the HFGK again I checked all these films serially. My findings were-

Movie Credited as
First film-Vasantsena -34 Miss Sitara
Second film- Anokhi Muhobbat-34 Sitara Devi
Third film- Shehar ka Jaadu-34 Sitaara
Fourth film- Vengeance is mine-35 Sitaara
Fifth film- Registan ki Rani- 35 Sitaara

From the above data, it is clear that she is the same person using all 3 names mentioned above. Since the singer’s name for today’s song is mentioned as Miss Sitara, this film might have made in or around 1934, when she was calling herself as Miss Sitara. As she became famous as a Dancer, she liked to use Sitara Devi as her name many times. In all her Dance programmes or dance related items,her name always was Sitara Devi.
So much about Sitara, the singer dancer and actress .

The film name ” Stove Tragedy ” evokes nostalgic memories. Kerosene stoves as a kitchen aid, came into use in India around the First or the second decade of the 20th Century. But this was exclusively used by the urban, upfront, higher level families. For most others, it was the traditional Choolhas for cooking. Those of our readers who grew up in the 50s or 60s will definitely remember Kerosene Stoves. It was only in the 70s that the LPG was introduced and became popular and commonly used cooking means. The original first Kerosene stove known popularly as ” Primus ” stove was later replaced by a Wick stove for safety purpose.

This is one reference I found in an old article, “In Hindi, Kerosene is called ‘Mitti ka tel’, meaning oil (out) of the earth. Initially, Kerosene was used in the lanterns for light. In 1892, Frans Wilhem Lindqvist developed the first commercially manufactured portable indoor cooking stove called ‘Primus’. The Primus employs a special burner where a tube is heated by lighting alcohol spirit. The Kerosene is manually pumped into heated tube, where it sprays out of a nipple mixing with air and producing blue hot flame. Primus provided convenience and became popular among low middle class in the urban areas.
During late 1970s, Kerosene wick stove was introduced. In principle, it is similar to the Kerosene space heaters used in United States “

The Kerosene stoves, besides being useful and famous for cooking and heating, were also notorious for accidents. Every now and then, there used to be cases reported in papers about the explosion of Stoves resulting in serious burns and deaths. Also these stoves were the causes where the ladies’ dresses, particularly the Sarees used to catch fire and young housewives would die of burns. Probably, this danger must have prompted invention and introduction of Stoves with Wicks.

The film ‘ Stove Tragedy’ might be a film based on such an accident. Its story is not known,but the title of the film suggests this type of story-line.

I am very grateful to our SUDHIR JI,who was kind enough to offer me this song-with Lyrics-to get included in this series. He even uploaded it on You Tube. So I am concluding this series with this Gem from an unreleased film of 30′s…an Unique distinction for this Blog. Thank you,Sudhir ji for your generosity.

Let us now enjoy this song by Miss Sitara….

Nainin se naina milaa (Song no. 15)
————————————-

It is almost a week since the song no. 14 of the series was posted. The wait has been fruitful. The series is extended by one more song, and now it will have 16 songs.

Nainon se naina milaa ke : Song No. 10
——————————————–

Here we are at the tenth and final song of the series ‘Nainon se naina milaa ke ‘. When I started this series, I had just three songs with similar mukhda’s one of which is the tenth song. The duet from ‘ Shahkaar ‘ and Geeta Roy solo from ‘Hamaari Manzil’ were the other two. So I had thought of keeping it short and sweet with these three songs.

Nainon se naina milaa ke – Song no. 09

Here comes the song no. 9 of the series, which is the oldest song so far. I am actually indebted to Sudhir Kapoor Sir, for suggesting this song for the series. This was not available on youtube. Sir was kind enough to upload the song and he also provided the lyrics both in English and Hindi script.

The Voice of Mukesh #56

Yes, I return to 1948 again today. A song that has been pending, for want of being located. And now I have it. The film is ‘Chaand Sitaare’. And lo, what a gem of a song has been discovered. Every time such a thing happens, i.e. coming across an unheard and a very obscure gem, there is such a feeling of exhilaration on the discovery. And also, the reassurance that there still are many such songs waiting out there in what we call the ocean of Hindi film music, all waiting for someone to pick them up and bring up to the surface and to the attention of the listeners. Oh yes, I am sure many people with a long association with this love of Hindi film music would have heard of this and other such lost gems. But getting to it and finding out that it is now available online, gives such a sense of accomplishment.

Today, I feel like shri Vitthalpant Kulkarni-father of Sant Gyaneshwar (Dnyaneshwar)-who had come back to Grihasthashram from his Sanyas. He came back to this material world, on the instructions of his Guru, as he was destined to give birth to the Saint.

Hindi Film Industry is like an ocean. As many rivers finally join the sea and lose their individuality, many artistes from all over the country join this industry and then lose their identity. Few are lucky and Talented who not only protect their identity but are also remembered for a long time. What happens to the artistes after they end their career ? Where do they go, what do they do ?

During the early 50s, whenever there was any function, or a marriage or Upnayan ceremony in some relative’s place, I alongwith all my cousins used to have a field day. Such functions were usually held during summer vacations,so there was no tension of Exams or studies. There were about 15-16 of us, both boys and girls put together. One favourite game that we used to play was called ” Bhendya “. This was similar today’s ‘Antakshari ‘. In those times our game consisted of only Marathi songs-Bhavgeets or cinema songs.
