His Master’s Voice (HMV) in those days was producing many Devotional and Non-Film Geet-Gazals Albums. In later years the company slowly discontinued such releases, purely due to commercial reasons.

In 1970 HMV released an Album of Suman Kalyanpur viz ‘Swar Bahar’.  It had ten melodious songs, five in each category, Devotional and Geet-Gazals.  In addition to Meera Bhajan, other songs by lyricist Anjan and Yogesh were included in the Album. It was a treasure for the Music enthusiast like me and I had acquired it in the first week of its release.

This Meerabai Bhajan has been used in many films with voices of Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Roy, Vani Jairam etc. Amongst them Lata’s version in ‘Navbahar’, under the music direction of Roshan has become so popular that any music lover will immediately identify this bhajan with ‘Navbahar’ version.

“Jogi mat jaa” is a very popular Meerabai bhajan, made famous during yester-years by Juthika Roy and M S Subbulakshmi and later on by Geeta Roy, Lata Mangeshkar and many other singers. Even in Classical field it was made immortal by Pandit Omkarnathji Thakur.

In addition to geet and gazals, in Suman Kalyanpur’s Non-Film songs collection, there are few semi-classical songs also. “Saajan Ki Baat Nirali” is a Thumri based on classical Raag ‘Pahadi’.

Suman Kalyanpur (nee Suman Hemmady) remains one of the best-loved voices of Hindi and Marathi songs — almost more than 20 years after she stopped singing full-time.

An exceptionally private person, Suman Kalyanpur hardly gives an interview to anyone. What you read about her is generally surmised from little known facts and rumors. She is also a very simple and unassuming person. She very well knew that her voice uncanningly sounded exactly like Lata’s and as such she was called in as a substitute when Lata was either abroad or unwell or had fallen out with a singer or a composer, as was often the case, from time to time. She was considered as poor man’s (producers’) Lata. Not being appreciated for her real talent, which was exceptionally brilliant, her grudge was apparent and she hardly went out to beg for singing assignments to any composers.

January 28th is the birth day of playback singer Suman Kalyanpur. She is a living example of how the career of a talented singer can be marred by a close resemblance of the voice of the numero uno singer in the field, in her case Lata Mangeshkar. Naturally, film industry preferred the reigning queen rather than giving enough opportunity to Suman Kalyanpur to prove her worth. She was mostly used as a substitute for Lata Mangeshkar when the latter was not available for recording the songs. Alternatively, she would get the singing assignments in low budget films. In the circumstances, I thought that she would have utilised her spare time in recording many NFSs. I find that even in respect of NFSs, Suman Kalyanpur is lagging in numbers in comparison to other top playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh etc. Was she really interested in pursuing playback singing career ? She is known to be a very private and low profile person. Only those who were close to her could get to know her mind. It took Ameen Sayani more than 40 years to persuade her to give an interview for a radio programme. Subsequently, she has given a couple of interviews through which we have come across some more information about her singing career.
