Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his anniversary of birth.

A voice like his, and a persona like him, has been a very unique and a very different presence in the film industry. Sadanand ji wrote in his write up earlier today, about Rafi Sb’s ability to so absolutely match his voice with the personality of the on screen performer, that the viewer would forget that it is a different voice in the playback, and would simply see and hear the on screen person. This ability of his, was a natural gift that was born from the personality that he was.

After the eid song with “E” with Lata Mangeshkar and Rafi Sahab, let us move on to ‘F’. Easier said than done as my troubles start here, there being very few song starting with this alphabet. And among those few a good percentage of songs are already posted, like ‘ fariyaad na karna haay kahin fariyaad na karna ‘, ‘falsafa pyaar ka tum kya jaano’, ‘falak bola zameen boli’ etc.

Today is the 15th of August ֠a date that has a very special meaning and significance for all Indians, wherever they may be in this world. For it was on the 15th of August 1947 that India got its independence from British rule.
This date is therefore understandably celebrated by Indians. It is a national holiday in the country too.

I have been going through the biographies and profiles of some of the well known Urdu poets – Mirza Ghalib, Ibrahim Zauq, Mir Taqi Mir, Daagh Dehlvi, Majaz Lucknawi, Firaq Gorakhpuri, Josh Malihabadi, Jigar Moradabadi etc. Most of them had faced prolonged pains and sufferings due to certain events that had happened in their lives. It is said that shaayars’ personal pains and sufferings bring the best shaayaris as these are born out of their first hand experiences. The lovers of ghazals still remember the poignant and melancholic ghazals of Ghalib, Mir, Firaq, Jigar etc.

It is such a frustrating exercise to get information on a poet-lyricist whom I admire for his light romantic and neo-devotional lyrics of Hindi non-filmy songs. Yes, many connoisseurs of Hindi NFSs may have correctly guessed him as Madhukar Rajasthani. I got familiar with his name only because of Vividh Bharati. It is surprising that not much information about him is available on the internet or in any other published materials. There was a time when at least one of the songs written by him used to be played in an early morning programme of devotional songs or in the afternoon programme of sugam sangeet (light semi-classical songs).

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.

Recently, I listened to a song ‘is dil se teri yaad bhulaayi nahi jaati’ on YT sung by Mohammed Rafi. The song sounded familiar to me. My first impression was that this song was from an old film. But the uploader of the audio clip mentioned that it was a NFS composed by Hansraj Bahl. I never knew that Mohammed Rafi had sung any NFS under the baton of Hansraj Bahl. One of the regulars on YT whom I consider to be fairly reliable has mentioned that this song was written by Rajinder Krishan as he had heard his name being mentioned by the announcer on Radio Ceylon while playing this song. Since the composition as well as rendition of this song gave me an impression of a filmy song, I searched for other audio clips of the same song and got my hand on an audio clip where the uploader had claimed that the song was from the film ‘Kaneez’ (1949). The film had two music director – Ghulam Haider and Hansraj Bahl and the song was accredited by the uploader to Ghulam Haider-Hansraj Bahl.

Khayyam is one of the music directors of Hindi film industry who made a significant contribution in propagating the NFSs. By his own admission, he had started declining most of the offers for Hindi films’ music direction during late 50s and early 60s as he did not feel comfortable in working in such films in which interference of producers and distributors in music direction had become the order of the day. It was during this period that he devoted his time and energy in composing some of the finest NFSs especially with Talat Mehmood and Mohammed Rafi.

Welcome all to the 7400th offering on this blog, which in my opinion should now be renamed as Atul-Six-Songs-a-Day (or maybe Atul-Six-Pack :) :).)

The last century milestone bade a goodbye to 2012, which turned out to be a marvelous year, as far as the accomplishments of this blog and its contributors are concerned. And then, moving on, we are now at the next century milestone, yet once again. A mite longer than regular, this century took twenty four days to arrive, far above the normal rate of one century every sixteen or eighteen days. In the interim, there were some days of travel that took time out of Atul ji’s schedule. But no matter, the interest and participation in the blog continues unabated, with unflagging enthusiasm. And that, dear friends, is the most heartening feature of this blog.

And there are many a great artists with wonderful qualities to create and render in films and film music. Majority of those whom we remember, are not with us anymore in this physical world. And we think of them, remember them, and feel blessed that we have had the good fortune to be born in this time and in this place, where this wonder that we call the Hindi film music ruled, and still rules, the hearts of millions.
