Mukesh and his Composers – 5
————————————

Remembering Mukesh (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976) today (22 july 2015)on his 92nd birth anniversary.

The year 1958 was a turning point in the singing career of Mukesh. Though he had started his career nearly two decades back in 1940 and had some remarkable hits in late 40’s and early 50’s, his foray into acting-singing in the early fifties had some disastrous consequences which in my view affected his whole career in some way or the other. The first three posts in this series clearly show that his songs with those composers stopped sometime after 1949-50. And then there are huge gaps before he was called again by the same composers.

Mukesh and his Composers – 4
——————————–
This beautiful Thursday morning let us listen to a bhajan by Mukesh in praise of Shirdi Sai Baba.

The philanthropic and humanitarian deeds of Mukesh are well known and documented. No article on Mukesh is complete without a mention of these activities during his life time. Distribution of blankets to the poor in winter, insistence to share the same boarding as that of his music arrangers during out-station concerts, performing shows for children and neighbours without charging any fees etc are few of the many examples. Also, being the senior-most among many of his contemporaries, he was often a peace maker amongst various disputes that arose in the film fraternity amongst artists. He was often called a noble soul for all these reasons.

Recently, I read ‘In the Company of a Poet – Gulzar in Conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir’ (2012). The book gives a bird’s eye view on the life of Gulzar – from setting his foot in Bombay (Mumbai) in mid-1950 to his continuing association with Bollywood. Before reading this book, I was under the impression that, like many others who came to Bombay to fulfill their aspirations to work in Bollywood, Gulzar was one of them. It was not so as revealed from his conversations in the book. Gulzar came to Bombay not by his own choice but as a part of his father’s plan to divide the financial responsibility of his large family following his post-partition migration from Dina (in Pakistan) to Delhi.

Mukesh and his Composers – 1
———————————
Naushad, Madan Mohan and SD Burman were some of the many music directors who composed songs for Mukesh. So why am I singling out these three great composers only? Read on.

I personally like to club these composers in one category as they have Mukesh songs in their initial films, but later on had huge gaps in terms of years before they accommodated him again albeit for a few songs. I would like to write three short posts on each of the combos.

R D Burman composed over 1700 songs in Hindi movies. Only 19 of these songs had the voice of Mukesh in them.

When I came across this figure yesterday (it is mentioned in the book -R D Burman- the man the music), I looked in the blog and also searched the list of R D Burman songs in HFGK.

The Voice of Mukesh #66
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The journey following the songs of Mukesh now enters 1955.  As we come into the time period of mid fifties and later, we are going to find more and more songs being already posted.  The songs that are remaining now are the ones which mostly are obscure, and less heard earlier.  But there is fun in filling the gaps.  And if this song is something to go by, it is a lots and lots of fun.

I have been doing some research on the works of Gopaldas Saxena ‘Neeraj’ – both as a poet and a lyricist for Hindi films. Being an admirer of this great poet and lyricist, I have been reading his poems that are available on the websites and also going through the available songs that he wrote for Hindi films. Suffice it to say here that he wrote over 100 songs for about 40 films during his stint in Hindi film industry. After 1975, The rate of his song writing for films had dwindled considerably since 1975, when he began to work from his home in Aligarh. The last time that he wrote a song for a film was for his close friend Dev Anand’s ‘Charge Sheet’ (2011).

Troika of the latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore – 1. Mukesh
——————————————————————————-

Sometime in the middle of April 2015, I had sent two write-ups to Atul ji and coincidentally, both these write-ups were on the songs sung by Mukesh. Atul ji sent me a reply saying that for the time being, he was avoiding posting songs of Mukesh as also of Rafi who are on their way to hitting centuries of their songs in the Blog. So he reckoned that my write ups on Mukesh’s songs may have to be held back for a few days. It was apparent that articles for the special events had already been planned.

A click on ‘Some stats’ page of the Blog revealed that while Mukesh was close to attaining his 700th song, Mohammed Rafi was only one short of his 2400th song in the Blog. A further glance on this page revealed that Kishore Kumar too was also very close to hitting his 900th song. So it was rare ‘celestial’ event like that of conjunction of planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars in the triangle shape which is expected on October 28, 2015. And all the three playback singers are nothing less than celestial stars along with Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. There was an inner urge in me to pay tributes to the troika of playback singers on this unique conjunction of century songs. A thought tickled in my mind. What if I was to select special songs for the troika of playback singers on the occasion?

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.
