The Unforgettable was the first album of ghazals and nazms launched by Jagjit-Chitra. It was released in 1977.

These days television and FM radio stations bombard the viewers/listeners with new film songs. A song becomes popular at once, or not at all. In a month or two, another song takes its place at the top of the Pop charts and it’s gone forever.

But those were slower times. When I turned up in Delhi in 1979, The Unforgettable was still gathering steam. My cousins had a turntable, and I listened to this album in the good old way, placing the needle on the record. The sounds were amazing. The music was soothing and seductive. Jagjit’s voice, heavy but low, crooned out the ghazals. Chitra’s fluty voice was melodious. Together they seduced my senses with the breathtaking shairi and a melody that gave me an out of body experience.

I listened to the album over and over again. I bought a copy of its cassette as well and listened to it all the time. It never lost its magic for me. At each listening, I would fall under its spell anew.

I know there are many other ghazal singers who are far superior. But that was the time of Jagjit and Chitra and they ruled the roost.

I was just at the end of my teens then. I was full of hopes and aspirations. The world was out there and full of possibilities. In such a rosy scenario, such songs sounded even sweeter, such songs that spoke of love and longing.

For this post I have chosen the first song in the album, “Baat niklegi to phir door talak jayegi”. The song is a recitation of the shairi, it is not ‘sung’. Yet Jagjit Singh’s mellifluous voice makes it sound like a soulful nazm. It speaks of a lover asking a young girl to hide her passions lest she is censured for it. It is loaded with sensuality and sweetness of love.


Song-Baat niklegi to phir door talak jaayegi (Jagjit Singh NFS)(1977) Singer-Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Kafeel Azar, MD-Jagjit Singh

Lyrics

Baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi
Log bewajha
Udaasi ka sabab poochenge
Yeh bhi poochenge
ki tum itni pareshaan kyun ho

Ungliyaan uthengi
sookhe huye baalon ki taraf
ik nazar dekhenge
guzre huye saalon ki taraf
Choodiyon par bhi kayi tanz kiye jaayenge
Kaanpte haathon pe bhi, fikre kase jaayenge

Log zaalim hain
har ik baat ka taana denge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
unki baaton ka zara sa bhi asar mat lena
Warna chehre ke ta’asur se samajh jaayenge

Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae
Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae ae
Mere baare mein koi baat na karna unse

baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 34

The number 10000 is an important milestone. In cricket, batsmen aggregating 10000 runs or more in test matches and One Day Internationals (ODIs) are considered iconic batsmen. In athletics, athletes participating in 10000m run are regarded as persons of great endurance. It is the ultimate aim of long distance runners to win the 10000m running competition to prove their prowess. I find that there are 9 batsmen in test matches and 10 batsmen in ODI cricket who have achieved the distinction of aggregating 10000 and more runs. There may be nearly hundred athletes who have won 10000m run in recognised athletic competitions.

If I were to ask the question ‘what was the common between Shailendra, Jaan Nisar Akhtar and Nyay Sharma’, the obvious answer is that they were lyricists for Hindi film songs during the golden era of Hindi film music. There is one more commonality between them. All of them tried their hands in producing a Hindi film in the 1960s which resulted in great financial strains on them from which they did not fully recover. In fact, after the release of their films, their careers as lyricist was on the downhill and in case of Shailendra, it ended with his untimely death.

Presently, I am on a nostalgic journey of the 60s when I was blessed with listening to some popular non-filmy songs sung by the top playback singers and other singers of that time. In fact some of non-filmy songs of that time were as popular as Hindi film songs. Almost all top playback singers of that time like Talat Mehmood, Mohammed Rafi, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle had recorded non-filmy songs at one time or the other. If Hindi films songs have hidden gems which are being unearthed on this blog every day, there are also lesser known gems in non-filmy song segment which need to be brought to the notice of the readers of this blog for the sake of posterity.
