I had listened to most of the audio clips of Begum Akhtar’s ghazals and other semi-classical songs uploaded on YT. She had rendered ghazals of many well known Urdu poets like Ghalib, Mir, Daagh, Momin Khan Momin, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Jigar Moradabadi, Firaq Ghorakhpuri, Behzad Lucknowi etc. In the later part of her singing carrier, she sang ghazals of the then emerging poets like Shamim Jaipuri, Shakeel Badayuni, Kaifi Azmi, Sudarshan Faakir, Amir Qabalbash etc. Jigar Moradabadi was one of her favourite poets. Begum Akhtar started singing his ghazal sometime in the second half of 30s when Jigar was already popular among the mushiara audience because of his captivating style of rendering his poetry. Because of his popularity, he was called ‘people’s poet’.

Begum Akhtar fell in love with Jigar Moradabadi’s Diwan when she first started reading it for selecting a few ghazals for composition and renditions in the concerts. From the poetry, she surmised that the poet must be a romantic person. Eventually, she fell in love with him without even meeting him. At one time, she used to sing only his ghazals in concerts with great fondness. Despite requests from the audience for singing some other poets’ ghazals, she would shrug off by saying that she had prepared to sing only his ghazals.

Her ‘crush’ for Jigar Moradabadi was so intense that one day after finding out Jigar’s residential addressed, she sent him a letter expressing her admiration of his Diwan and proposing to marry him. She said ‘you are a poet and I am a singer. We should unite and make a great couple’. Jigar Moradabadi sent his reply telling her that she had only read his Diwan but had not seen him. He advised her not to dream about looking at him as he was not the one suited to be her lover. The reference to ‘not to look at him’ was a pointer to the fact that Jigar Moradabadi did not consider himself to be a good looking person. On the day she received his ‘letter of rejection’ one of the ghazals she sang in her concert was a gloomy ghazal of Ghalib:

Ye na thhi hamaari kismat ke visaal-e-yaar hota
Agar aur jeete rehte yehi intezaar hota

[I was not fortunate to join with my beloved.
If I had lived longer, it would have been an endless wait.]
Note: The source of the anecdote mentioned above is ‘Ae Mohabbet… Reminiscing Begum Akhtar’ written by Prof. Rita Ganguli, one of her senior disciples.

Jigar Moradabadi remained one of her favourite poets and she continued to sing his ghazals until her death in October 1974.

I have selected for this write-up one of Jigar Moradabadi’s ghazals which she composed and sang in the concerts during the days of her ‘crush’ for the Poet. The ghazal is ‘koi ye keh de gulshan gulshan’. Begum Akhtar had composed this ghazal and sang in concerts sometime in latter half of 30s, but it was recorded for HMV sometime in early 50s (Record No. N.88304). Five out of 19 couplets of the ghazal have been included in the record version to fit in 78 RPM disc space.

Enjoy this khushnuma (joyous) ghazal in a sonorous voice of Begum Akhtar in her birth centenary year 2014.


Song-Koi ye keh de gulshan gulshan (Begam Akhtar NFS)(1950) Singer-Begam Akhtar, Lyrics-Jigar Muradabadi

Lyrics

raaz ye kyaa hai
ae ae ae
hijr ki raat aur itni raushan
hijr ki raat aur itni raushan
koi ye keh de gulshan gulshan

rahmat hogi ee
aa ee eee
taalib e isyaan
rashk karegi paaki e daaman
rashk karegi paaki e daaman
koi ye keh de

kaaaanthon kaa bhi
haq hai kuchh aakhir
kaun chhudaaye apna daaman
kaun chhudaaye apna daaman
kaun chhudaaye
koi ye keh de gulshan gulshan
ko…i

How do you feel when a family member achieves something spectacular? Atul is my family, not only as a fellow blogger, but also because both of us started our professional career at the same Institute. This was a small, beautiful, self-contained place, tucked away in a town back of beyond, at the foothills of a hill (which was literally called पहाड़ी). This Institute was a British creation in 1927, with exceptional facilities thrown in: indoor swimming pool, indoor badminton court, squash court, tennis courts, football field, table tennis, billiards table, lounge, dark room for photography (the world was not digital then), and a huge golf course just outside the complex. Four years of our most exciting young days in this ambience, the life-style, and the traditions created a strong life-long bond with the Institute, and among the alumni. As I entered a few years earlier, I am especially delighted by the awesome achievement of my younger brother, The Incomparable Atul. As he completes the magical number of 10,000 posts I convey my heartiest congratulations to him and all the regular contributors who have made it possible.

Folks who are avid browsers of the internet in search of Hindi film songs and related information must be very familiar with another blog ‘Songs Of Yore’ (http://www.songsofyore.com/). Today, I am writing to introduce AK ji, the personality, who is the driving force behind this blog that is famous in the digital world, for its content and references. Last month, on 7th June, his blog ‘SoY’ celebrated its fourth anniversary. On the occasion, the lead post starts with the following paragraph.

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.

This Non-Film Raaga Maala is by Ustad Ahmed Hussain and Ustad Mohammed Hussain. The composition is unique and very complex. The two brothers have incorporated 9 different ragas in each Antara (total 18 ragas in two antaras). Each time they mention a raga, they sing that verse in that particular raga. It is very admirable that the duo has written the lyrics themselves.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 10) Last song of the series
———————————————————-

In the early 40s through the mid 60s, Radio was the only common entertainer for every household. Of course the choice of Gramophone was also there, but only few people could afford to own a gramophone. I remember, our morning used to open with melodious Bhajans from the Radio. Those days’ Mumbai Radio Station’ ( from the beginning, it was called Mumbai Radio station only-not Bombay anytime. For Hindi service it was Bambai) used to start early at 5.30 a.m. It first played Shehnai and then very sweet Bhajans, for an hour or so. That is how Juthika Roy and D.V.Paluskar’s names were etched on the memory card for ever. To listen to their bhajans was a divine experience.

THE JOY OF NFS(Song No. 9)
——————————-

Manna Dey never achieved the kind of popularity that some of his more commercially successful contemporaries (Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh etc) enjoyed, but that in no way is a reflection on Manna Dey’s calibre as a singer. As a singer he had perhaps the widest range of them all. He could sing songs ranging from philosophical to comical with equal felicity. In his case, passage of time has helped enhance his reputation.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 8)
——————————-

Sachin Dev Burman was a titan amongst composers and singers of songs for Indian films and outside of them. Born on October 01 1906 in Comilla, about 100 kilometers from Dhaka Bangladesh, Sachin Dev Burman was a scion of the princely family of Tripura, now a state of India. His noble lineage is reflected in the grace of his musical creations spanning a period of 43 years until his death in Bombay in 1975.
