If we in this blog pride ourselves in the fact that we “dig” (literally and figuratively) old and obscure songs and share our findings, there have been other HFM lovers who have dug out information about lesser known artists from the past and brought them to limelight. Greta (Memsaab) has done a yeoman’s service in helping bring lesser known faces of Hindi movies to limelight. It is because of her amazing researches on lesser known artists that we now remember the names of artists like Nazir Kashmiri, Laxmi Chhaayaa, Bela Bose, Ted Lyons etc. In fact, I became aware of lead artists like Shakila, Shyama etc mainly because of her articles in her blog. This was in addition to her love for artists like Shammi Kapoor, Dara Singh, Ranjeet etc, of course.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 10
—————————————————–

[Note of Apology: This write up has been in the making since two nights, including the “telephonic interview”.  Apologies that I was not able to post it before midnight yesterday. But then the thought comes – it is still 19th July somewhere in the world. Ah yes, our Khyati Ben in Los Angeles, USA,  is still working through the 19th.  So in a ‘relative’ way, this post is still on time. A brief summary of the celebration events covered herein – seventh anniversary for the blog, 11,300th song posted, and the completion of the planned ‘Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs’ series. Read on.]

[Note of Apology 2: With due apologies to Atul ji, for having taken some liberties in narrating certain aspects of his household.  I am very sure the permission towards these liberties are/will be granted, even though the same has not yet been formally requested ;) ]

Einstein has said, and he must have been quoted on this many million times by now, that ‘time is relative’. There are a variety of different explanations and discourses on this single statement, depending on the perspective or the branch of science or maths, or for that matter, any other subject, that one is considering. There is a very interesting anecdote connected with this statement. Once a newspaper reporter asked Einstein to explain in simple terms, what is the meaning of the phrase ‘time is relative’.  And Einstein, without going into any mathematical or philosophical explanations, gave the following response.  He said – consider the situation when someone is holding your feet to the fire.  In such a circumstance, a passage of even 5 seconds would seem as if an hour has passed. Then again, think of a situation, when you are sitting and talking ‘sweet nothings’ with your beloved.  Then, after an hour has passed, it would seem to you as if just maybe five minutes have gone by.  That is what makes time relative. :)

When I started collecting cassettes in 1985, I was very crazy about purchasing of cassettes at regular intervals; I was always searching for songs of old films (especially of Rajesh Khanna films at that time).

It was my practice, beginning from 8th standard onwards that I would take up some part time job during my vacations which I would give up as classes would resume. I had taken up a part time job during the vacation period after class 12th as well, but unlike the previous years, I did not go back to my classes this time, rather I continued with this job since I was aware that I was going to fail in my exams.

My list of ‘songs that create nostalgia and brings back memories’ include many songs sung by Rafi Saab, viz. ‘jhoomta saawan dekho aaya’, ‘shikaar karne ko aaye shikaar hoke chale’ etc.

The song under discussion today is one of those songs. When this film was released I was one year old, so I think that I must have watched this film when I must be of 5 or 6 years old.

From the comments of our readers in earlier songs of this movie, it is known that it was a chor police movie where Balraj Sahni is the police and he is in love with Minu Mumtaz. It turns out that Minu Mumtaz’s brother, N A Ansari is the boss of a smuggling gang. His gang is named after his pet- a black cat.

Today’s song under discussion is “Bol bol bol bol My little dove” from the film Baap Bete-59. The music Director for this film is Madan Mohan.

MADAN MOHAN. An Unique composer. A thorough Gentleman. Lata Mangeshkar had called him “The King of Ghazal”. He created masterpieces in her voice, which set high standards in films. Madan Mohan, however,could never combine Class with Mass appeal unlike other composers like Naushad, S D Burman or Roshan or Shanker – Jaikishen.
