Two days ago, Suman ji completed the 79th milestone of her melodic life. It is so hard to believe that she is now so senior in years. Some months back, maybe almost a year, she was in Delhi and was present on stage for a singing performance. Unfortunately I myself was not able to make it. But other friends who had attended had said that she continues to be as impressive in her voice, as she was before. Still as sweet, and ‘sureeli’ as Bharat ji would put it.

Missing Films of 1960s – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, back from ‘Bapu Ne Kaha Tha’ and on to the next available movie in this sequence. Today, I am posting a wonderful song from the 1962 film ‘Manchali’. Ah yes, we had another ‘manchali’, before the more well known film of the same name from 1973 starring Sanjeev Kumar and Leena Chandavarkar. It appears that this film most likely sank without making any ripples, or leaving any memories behind. There is really very little information available for this film.

Mohammed Rafi, a name which hardly goes unheard for each day of our lives and a voice which has filled our lives with ever-lasting songs for every occasion and reason.

Mall Road, for me, is connected with wonderful sweet memories of my childhood.  As it is, Mall Road is there in many cities, here in India and also outside India.  But in India, and more so in my mind, the mention of this word is almost always connected with Simla.

Genius of Jaidev – 34
———————————

One more song from the film  ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do’ is a surprise song for me. I heard it for the first time due to the ‘meherbaani’ of ‘uperwala’. (Geographically Delhi is ‘uper’ to Mumbai.)  The second surprise is the sweet voiced singer.  Suman Kalyanpur has sung only two songs with Jaidev. (as far as I know)  The other one is “Mai Teri Dasi Tu Mera Data” from the 1972 film ‘Bhavana’.  After hearing this song every music lover would opine in unison, that they should have come together more often. One more rare occurrence is lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri providing lyrics for Jaidev.  I request our statisticians of the blog to make me ‘buddha’ (dictionary meaning – ‘one who knows’) about these statistics.

Two important birthdays coming together today – 8th September.  One is music director S Mohinder and the second is Asha Bhosle.  These two have created a number of songs together. Some memorable, and others, like this one, need to be rediscovered for their sheer beauty and simplicity of pleasure. During our visit to Bombay last month, Bakshi ji and I had the good fortune to spend a whole afternoon with S Mohinder ji.  A session that lasted almost four hours – it was a wonderful trip down the memory lane, for him, as well as for us.  That meeting itself is a detailed writeup that is waiting in the drafts list.  For this occasion, I am quoting two episodes where S Mohinder ji remembered Asha ji very fondly.

Genius of Jaidev – 25
———————————-

In this series, we are trying to cover all the songs from 1957 film ‘Anjali’, which happens to be Jaidev’s third released film. Prior to this, he had only one released film in each of the prior two years; 1955 – ‘Joru Ka Bhai’, and 1956 – ‘Samundari Daku’. Not at all a successful entry in film music world. He had to wait till 1961 and the film ‘Hum Dono’ to be recognized as a great composer, capable to catch attention of classes and masses. However, to the true good music lovers (including me), all of his tunes right from his first film are gems.

Readers of this blog can rarely guess my whereabouts from the posts that appear in the blog, unless I share such information. Otherwise posts appear on the blog daily irrespective of my whereabouts or my preoccupation with other activities.

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.
