Hmm, at last I started writing my first blog. I was thinking of doing this for a long, long time. Ever since I came to know about a very benevolent soul who lets all who want to write, to write on his blog. It is so sweet of him, I used to think. But didn’t do it for various reasons. Most of all, my laziness. Now I have shook off my laziness and am presenting my thoughts ….. Hope Atulites don’t mind it (provided of course Atul finds my writing worthy enough to be published). Published, oh that is a big word to use. My first publication, if and when that happens, I will be flying in air like the girl in the song I am discussing here. Now, please don’t ask me how else one can fly, one can only fly in air. :)

The readers of this blog are by now well aware that the blog has completed five years today (19 july 2013). I did not need to announce it though. A few regulars were already aware of this occasion. In fact, Peevesie’s mom, a fellow enthusiast and a fellow sufferer at the hands of her internet supply provider, :) offered her greetings yesterday itself. Another regular, Avinash Scrapwala then pointed it out to her that the birthday (oops, birth anniversary :) ) of the blog fell on 19 july. :)

There are ways of discovering wondrous songs now. Radio was the main source where we heard old movie songs. Then for newer songs we had cassette players and C D players and also T V. With the accessibility of internet, I do not need any thing else to listen to songs but my laptop and net connection.

In old Hindi movies, especially those of 1950s and 1960s, we often see songs picturised on “Taanga”, also called “Tonga”, not to be confused with a country of this name. :)

“Taanga” was actually a mode of public transport in India those days. With time, Taanga has all but vanished as a mode of public transport in India. But they have not become extinct. One can still find them in some small towns of India. I have noticed them in small places in Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh etc. In fact, one can see them in Fatehpur Sikri near Agra in UP. I recall that we (I, my wife and daughter) actually rode on a Taanga to go to Fatehpur Sikri a few years ago.

With this write up, I initiate a series of posts (at least ten, may be some more) to cover some very wonderful gems, and yet, very obscure and rarely heard songs of Mukesh. Mukesh, a voice filled with magic, a poignant and a simple, unpretentious sound. A voice that attracts with its sweet mellifluous tones. A voice that remains a unique rendition to date. Never up there is the top brackets like Rafi Saab or Kishore Da. And yet, the voice that has left an indelible mark on the Hindi film music. And also bequeathed scores of veritable gems for the listening pleasure of music lovers.
