There are some old film and non-filmy songs of 30s and 40s which I was aware of during my childhood not because of the radio or later the internet but by words of mouth. I heard those songs from my parents, relatives and even some friends of our family. During my childhood, I was not very fond of those songs. Later, as a teenager, I had heard some of those songs on Radio Ceylon which gave me a sort of reminder that I had heard those songs earlier. I got 78 RPM records of a few of those songs mostly by accident during early 70s. Since then, I have developed a liking for those type of songs. Later, with the advent of internet, it was a ‘memory recall’ for me when I listened to most of these songs again.

In olden times there was a saying that one must visit Kashi(Benaras/Varanashi) before one dies.(There is an old saying in Western India ” Surat nu Jaman ane Kashi nu Maran”,which means,in your life you must eat food in Surat and Die in Kashi-both the best options).

I have mentioned it in the past that I did not like “old” songs when I was young. Those days (1970s), anything more than five years old was old for me. Today, I love listening to songs that are fifty, sixty and sometimes even seventy years old. Things have changed. I would like to believe that I have “matured”. Of course, I will not say that I was wrong as a kid.

Presenting an iconic non-film song rendered by Pankaj Babu. The verses are written by Faiyyaaz Hashmi, and the music composition by Pankaj Babu himself. As a music director, there are many pioneering accomplishments that Pankaj Babu has contributed to the cause of music. In this particular song, there are very distinct sounds of piano and guitar. Pankaj Babu was probably the first music director who integrated the sounds of western musical instruments in the music arrangement for this song.

Doctor (1941) is a classic landmark film produced under the banner of New Theatres, Calcutta and directed by Subodh Mitra. The music composition is by Pankaj Babu, and the lyrics are penned by Aarzoo Lucknowi and Asgar Hussain Shor. The lead role of the principled and self effacing doctor is played Pankaj Babu. Other actors in the star line up include Nemo, Jyoti Prakash, Panna, Bharati Devi, Ahindru Chaudhry, Amar, Indu Mukherjee, Buddh Deb, Arbind Sen, Tona Roy, Ardhendu Mukherjee, Sukumar Pal etc. A fairly detailed synopsis of the film is available online, and is also partly covered in other songs from this film already discussed on this blog, especially Mehak Rahi Phulwaari and Kab tak niraashaa ka andhiyaara . This particular song is written by Agsar Hussain Shor.

Comparatively, the treasure of Hindi songs by Pankaj Babu is limited. In the Hindi/Urdu domain, Pankaj Babu has scored music for about 25 films from 1933 to 1954, some of them in collaboration with RC Boral. He has rendered less than 40 songs in all, in Hindi films. Outside of films, and excluding the live programs and recordings, the non-film Hindi songs number about 20. And so comparatively, his contribution appears to be not as significant (in the Hindi domain) as that of his contemporaries. His musical creations are more prolific in the Bengali film and non-film space. By some accounts, Pankaj Babu has composed over five thousand songs. Simply going by the numbers, it is evident that his major contribution has been in Bengali.
