Happy Diwali.

Greetings to all dear fellow travelers of this musical voyage, and all dear friends and readers on this blog. Another new celebration of the festival of lights – may it illuminate your life with the brilliance of joy and happiness. And may it bring blessings of good health, peace and satisfying prosperity – blessings that may come visiting, and then continue staying in your household. Till the time when it is due for celebration again, and this greeting will be refreshed – again.

The day that marks the return of Bhagwan Shri Ram to his home in Ayodhya, after a gap of fourteen years. Fourteen long and dreary and joyless years for the people of Ayodhya; years that were spent without the presence of Lord Ram amongst them. While this tenure was in progress, it seemed limitless and overawing. But when the day arrived and the dear Lord returned home, it was a celebration of happiness never seen before.

In the epic ‘Ramayan’, there is a description of two other fabulous celebrations, one when the Lord appears in family of Raja Dashrath, and the second when the young Prince is married to Sita, the daughter of Raja Janak. Both celebrations have been described in detail in the epic. Both celebrations are also portrayed as epitomes of joy and fulfillment. And yet, it is the celebration of the return of Lord Ram that is the most celebrated. For it is the day when, after a wait of fourteen long years, the people of Ayodhya, who had known the joy of His presence amongst them, and had lost him on a pretext, were reunited with His presence and His grace once more. The happiness knows no bounds, when one receives back something that is a source of joy and fulfillment, something that was taken away, and then finally it is returned once again.

It is a celebration of the second homecoming of this happiness. It is the return and the revival of joy into life. It is the time to light up so many lamps that the night becomes as luminous and dazzling as the day itself. Let this celebration sweep through not just your home, but also through your self, your being. With the prayers that this return of the blessings and joy is now forever.

Presenting another wonderful non film rendition by Rafi Sb for this occasion today. This songs comes from the other side of the 78 rpm record that also carries the other Diwali celebration song by him – “Falak Se Utre Zamee Pe Taare” . An NFS that is recorded sometimes in the 1960s, for which information about the poet and the composer is as yet not available.

Listen and enjoy. May this celebration of the visitation of Divine presence and fulfillment, remain with you always.

Happy Diwali.


Song-Aayi deewaali ki dulhaniya (Rafi NFS)(1960) Singer-Rafi

Lyrics

aayi deewali ki dulhaniya
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya
jhil mil deep jaley
jhil mil deep jaley
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya
phoot padey kirnon ke jharne ae
phoot padey kirnon ke jharne
laagey mann ko bhaley
laagey mann ko bhaley
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya

ban thhan kar aaye parwaane ae ae ae ae ae
jal jal kar deewali manaane ae
jal jal kar deewali manaane
log kahen deewali jisko
log kahen deewali jisko
pyaar kisi ka hans ke jaley
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya
jhil mil deep jaley
jhil mil deep jaley

aaaa
birhan ke ghar aayi deewali
birhan ke ghar aayi deewali
sang mein dukhde laayi deewali
sang mein dukhde laayi deewali
lok laaj se darr kar chaahe
lok laaj se darr kar chaahe
us ne kiya singaar bhale
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya

jug jug se koi deepak gaata
jalaa hua dil aur jalaata
apne mann ki pyaas bujhaata
in taaron ki chhaon taley
aayi deewali ki dulhaniya
jhil mil deep jaley
jhil mil deep jaley
jhil mil deep jaley
jhil mil deep jaley

आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया
झिलमिल दीप जले
झिलमिल दीप जले
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया
फूट पड़े किरणों के झरने
फूट पड़े किरणों के झरने
लागे मन को भले
लागे मन को भले
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया

बन ठन कर आए परवाने ॰ ए॰ ए॰ ए॰ ए
जल जल कर दिवाली मनाने
जल जल कर दिवाली मनाने
लोग कहें दिवाली जिसको
लोग कहें दिवाली जिसको
प्यार किसी का हंस के जले
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया

आssss
बिरहन के घर आई दिवाली
बिरहन के घर आई दिवाली
संग में दुखड़े लाई दिवाली
संग में दुखड़े लाई दिवाली
लोक लाज से डर कर चाहे
लोक लाज से डर कर चाहे
उसने किया सिंगार भले
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया

जुग जुग से कोई दीपक गाता
जला हुआ दिल और जलाता
अपने मन की प्यास बुझाता
इन तारों की छांव झिलमिल दीप जले
झिलमिल दीप जले
तले
आई दिवाली की दुल्हनीया
झिलमिल दीप जले
झिलमिल दीप जले
झिलमिल दीप जले
झिलमिल दीप जले

Mohd Rafi in the 70s
————————-
The introduction to my Facebook group “Mohd Rafi – The Virtuoso” starts with – “Rafi Saab ek ehsaas hai jise mahsoos kiya jata hai, bayaan nehin. Yeh ek naam hai jise sunte hamare dil mein sukoon aur chhehre par muskurahat aa jati hai (Rafi Saab is a feeling that is felt, which cannot be told. It is a name that brings a smile on our face and we feel relaxed). To us he is ethereal; someone from another world; larger than life. No less than a God. This one name evokes a million feelings inside us. We have a smile on our lips and tears in our eyes. In other words, we feel alive when we hear this name – Mohammad Rafi.”

Laxmikant and Pyarelal duo are the most successful composers of Hindi film music. They were at the top during the 70s and 80s, having started as performers in orchestras, becoming arrangers for Hindi film music, which often included ghosting for composers. They composed music for about 635 Hindi movies from 1963 to 1998.

Laxmikant learnt the violin with Husnlal while Pyarelal learnt music from the his father Pandit Ram Prasad Sharma as well as goan music teacher, Anthony Gonsalves. Pyarelal assisted Bulo C. Rani at Ranjit, while both of them assisted Naushad, C. Ramchandra and Kalyanji- Anandji. Their first film as music directors, Parasmani, yielded a major hit, Hansta hua nurani chehra. They broke through big time with Milan (1967), with the Lata-Mukesh duet “Sawan Ka Mahina”.

And what can one say about the lethal combination of Mohd Rafi and the magical duo of Laxmikant and Pyarelal?!? They have given us hundreds of songs {total of 369songs, including 186 solos}.

Praising Rafi Saab, Pyarelal Ji once said: “What can I say about a man jo tareef se bahut hi oopar hai, and had countless golden qualities? I am only able to feel my deep regard for him, not to express it. Rafi Saab aisi sargam thi jisse koi bhi raag ban saktaa tha. He could sing in any range or octave. If today’s composers are to flower, the Almighty should create nine Rafis more!”

Together the LP-Rafi combination gave us many treats and amongst Rafi saab’s best ever sung songs are those composed by L-P. “Tere pyar ne mujhe gham diya” from Chaila Babu (1967) lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri was LP & Rafi saab’s first song together. It was recorded in 1961 but it got released in 1967.

Rafi Saab was to give L-P a major hit with Chahoonga Main Tujhe in Dosti. Over the years, he’s rendered a string of hits for the music directors – including Beimaan Hai Bada (in Loafer), Na Tu Zameen Ke Liye (Dastaan), Aane Se Uske Aaye Bahar (Jeene Ki Raah), Chalkaaye Jaam and Hui Shyam Unka (Mere Humdum Mere Dost), Yeh Jo Chilman Hain and Itna To Yaad Hai Mujhe (Mehboob Ki Mehndi), the title songs of Patthar Ke Sanam and Khilona title song, Jhilmil Sitaron Ka (with Lata Mangeshkar in Jeevan Mrityu), Parda Hai Parda (Amar Akbar Anthony), Dafliwale (with Lata in Sargam), Dard-e-Dil (Karz) and scores of others. In fact, Rafi’s last song Tu Kahin Aas Paas Hai Dost was recorded for LP for the film Aas Paas.

LP were the staunch Rafi loyalist throughout their life. Their greatness lies in their simplicity, commitment and the quality of unconquered versatility gave Laxmikant-Pyarelal a supreme staying power of 35 years in the Hindi Film Music. Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s tunes used to be very simple but at the same time it used to be extremely sweet, catchy and melodious. When it came to composing great and classy music, LP were in a class of their own. Their melody and orchestration was outstanding and the variety in their work was excellent.

Rafi Saab voice was extensively used by this duo in all forms of film songs – Classical, Folk, Qawwali, Western, Lori, Bhajan, Ghazal etc. They were also outstanding at exploiting several instruments, including their favourite Dholak, Tabla, Violin, Guitar, Bongo, Piano, Santoor, Sitar, Mandolin, French Horn, Rabab and many other Indian as well as Western instruments.

LP churned out song after song with Rafi Saab from “Parasmani” till “Aas Paas”. The songs were simply out of the world.

Pyarelal has plenty of memories of Rafi Saab, among which, some are mentioned below, for the benefit of Mohd Rafi fans:

“Rafi Saab was like a farishta. No other word would be more appropriate to describe him” he recalls “He talked less and had a special style of nodding his head. He always looked down and talked, no matter whom he talked with. For him, everybody was the same, and he talked to everybody in the same tone,” he points out.

“Rafi Saab had a special habit of keeping his car spotless clean”; “Another thing he loved was good food. He’d have a lavish meal whenever he could,” he says.

Pyarelal, however, points out that Rafi rarely went to parties. “He liked to stay in his own world, and concentrate on two things – namaz and riyaz. But he has come to my birthday party twice. They may be among the exceptions he made, but we were so close,” he adds.

On Rafi Saab’s approach towards singing, Pyarelal says “He was God-gifted. He used to do so much riyaz that everything looked so simple. Then, he would modulate his voice to suit each hero, whether it was Dilip Kumar, Bharat Bhushan, Rajendra Kumar or Shammi Kapoor.” Pyarelal says Rafi was a strict disciplinarian when it came to work. He elaborates: “He never cancelled any recording, even if he had a 1020F temperature. In fact, he was the first singer to regularly go on foreign tours. He would go every year, first with his small orchestra, and later with a bigger group.”

Was there anything that Rafi Saab loved as much as singing? “Yes, he loved whistling. He would whistle regularly, either in the form of a tune or just loudly when he was happy.” For Pyarelal, the tales would never cease. But then, Laxmikant Pyarelal and Rafi Saab not only made some great music together, but shared a special bond too.

Some of my favourite (rarer) solo songs sung by Rafi Saab composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal are given below:

Tauba Ye Nazare Ye Katil Ishare “Dillagi” (1966)
Tere Pyar Ne Mujhe Gam Diya “Chhaila Babu”(1967)
Akela Hoon Main Humsafar Dhoondata “Jaal” (1967)
Aankh Milaye Na Muskuraye Na “Milan Ki Rat” (1967)
Kaise Koi Jaane Bhala “Taqdeer” (1968)
Gudiya Si Meri Ladli “Wapas” (1969)
Door Hai Wo Aanchal “Wapas” (1969)
Rom Ke Wadiyon Mein Do Dil “Spy In Rome” (1969)
Haseen Dilruba Kareeb Aaa Zara “Roop Tera Mastana” (1972)
Tu Mujhe Thaam Le Ke Main “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973)
Main Wohi Wohi Baat Mere “Naya Din Nai Raat” (1974)
Muhobbat Hi Mubobbat Hai “Geeta Mera Nam” (1974)
Meri Dushman Hai Ye Mere Ulzan Hai “Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki” (1978)

“Roop Tera Mastana” (1972) stars Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Pran, I.S. Johar, Leela Mishra, Brahm Bhardwaj, Malika, Birbal, etc. It was directed by Khalid Akhtar for RKD Studios and had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal with lyrics penned by Asad Bhopali and Verma Malik.

The Story is about Princess Usha (Mumtaz), who is the successor to the throne. She is murdered by her minister Ajit (Pran) and is replaced by a duplicate, a happy village girl Kiran (Mumtaz), that looks exactly like her. She meets with Usha’s fiancé (Jeetendra), a Prince himself, and falls in love with him, not realizing that her feelings will soon be history when those few days come to an end, and she must then give up her wealthy life-style and go back to being poor again.

The story line is very similar to another movie released in the same year – Raja Jani (1972).

Now coming to today’s song, Rafi Saab has sung this beauty in an extremely romantic, sensuous and passionate way. The prelude music starts with beautifully played rubab, santoor, piano and guitar. And the song is accompanied by great orchestration primarily using these four instruments along with accordion, tens of violins and percussion.

Five songs of this movie have been discussed previously on this blog. This is the sixth out of the total seven songs in this movie.

“Haseen dilruba karib aa zara ke abhi dil nahi bhara” by Mohd Rafi, Music by Laxmikant Pyarelal, Lyrics by Asad Bhopali from “Roop Tera Mastana” (1972)


Song-Haseen dilruba kareeb aa zara (Roop Tera Mastaana) (1972) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Hmm hmm hmmmm
hm hm hm Hmmm
ah hahaha

haseen dilruba
kareeb aa zara
ke abhi dil nahi bhara
kareeb aa zara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara

haseen dilruba
kareeb aa zara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara

raat kitni baar pee
mujhko yaad hi nahin
itna yaad hai ke pyaas
badh gayi bujhi nahin
shabaab se saja
gulaab mein basa
sharaab se bana
jawaan badan tera
idhar to la zara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara
haseen dilruba

sharm aur laaj ke saare
band khol de
mere ang ang mein apna
pyaar ghol de
na haath yoon chhuda
na aankhen yoon dikha
na chehra yoon chhupa
ke mujhse sharm kyaaa
Lipat bhi ja zara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara
haseen dilruba
kareeb aa zara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara
ke abhi dil nahin bhara

One more song, the final one of this series – it belongs to the category ‘heard- just-once-o-but-never-forgotten’. And once again, another dramatic reunion, this one just two days ago.

(1970s Unreleased – Solo)

Ah yes, I am sure you would have guessed it already. When I wrote yesterday that the series is not yet complete, and given that all years in the decade are covered, then what is left are the unreleased songs from this decade. Films that got planned, music and songs got arranged and recorded, but the films either did not get made, were abandoned, or were not released, for various reasons. And as experience has told us time and again, such unreleased songs are a fabulous treasure by themselves. They form a very interesting category, in that the songs have been created, recorded and also released, sometimes formally and sometimes informally. They are away from the mainstream attention, since the films never came to the theatres, and their familiarity in the minds of general public is low. Most of these unreleased songs were first heard on radio, occasionally. They have remained in memory, albeit without any memory of information about them. Sometimes, they are also mislabeled in the mind’s catalog as non-film songs. Simply because they are not associated with any familiar or even obscure film names.

And so, the last two offerings of this series are two very fabulous songs from unreleased films from the decade of 1970. As I am sifting through the list of unreleased films in Geet Kosh, and in the song folders of unreleased films in my collection, I find such a huge treasures of absolute gems of top quality that have been recorded, but never came into the mainstream broadcast or record sales. Blissfully, they are available. Once again, I am spoilt for choices, even with the comparatively smaller sample size in this category, and finding it difficult to choose one. But I have to. And for the solo, I have chosen this wonderful poetical gem from the unreleased film ‘Insaan Aur Insaan’.

Today (2 october 2014) is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri. And this time it is a day when this day is being celebrated differently. A massive nationwise cleanliness campaign is being launched this day and it is expected to create awareness among masses to keep their premises clean. “swaachh Bharat Swasth Bharat” is the slogan. This is a movement that is launched with the expectation and people will slowly and steadily open their eyes to cleanliness so that in five years time, when we celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, India is a clean nation. Amen to that !

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1980 – Solo)

It was 1980 that we lost this precious human being and an inimitable, pure and natural artist, to the directions of the Power that we humans do not understand. His gift of the voice and emotional empathy was bestowed by Him, and He chose to call back this endowment to the humanity. With all the hindsight and life’s experience we do understand the inevitability of this event, and our inability to do anything about it. Nothing but resigned acceptance is what we can offer. But in Rafi Sb’s case, one question does keep nagging, with regret – ‘Did it have to be so soon?’. Just at 56 years of age. And a voice that simply did not age at all. Nahm ji had commented a few days back on one of the songs – Rafi Sb’s voice is sounding younger than the actor who is performing on screen (it was Dharmendra, in film ‘Dharamveer’ from 1977).

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1979 – Solo)

This song by Rafi song has been a very dramatic reunion for me, and very that too, very recently. Although 1979, but who would even pay an iota of attention to a film titled ‘Badmaashon Ka Badmaash’. Till just two three weeks ago, I was not even aware that a film by this name exists. However, this song is one of the category which I call ‘heard-just-once-o-but-never-forgotten’. Times were fairly into the second half of seventies. We had moved into our own home by this time. And my family still did not own a TV. My mamma ji (maternal uncle) and his family had moved in with us. And the extended family was sharing their TV.
