Today is Raja Swaminathan’s second birthday! On this blog, I mean! I don’t know Raja’s age, but what I see and hear from him, he must be very young and very active. As many of you must already know, Raja is a passionate blogger. Yes, passionate is the word, which I would use to describe Raja in one word. Raja is passionate about politics, social politics and not party politics. Yes, he has a keen sense of justice and injustice. He is aware of the many wrong things going on in this world. I admire this quality in him very highly. What I admire about him is also his ability to put all his wonderful thoughts in words. When I sit and torture myself with the composition of each sentence. To him his nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs flow with an ease which would put a bubbling stream to shame. What’s more they flow in perfect syntax. Then he also has a wonderful sense of humour, particularly his PJs are very funny. And going by all his posts and comments on fb, Raja comes across as a very nice person. Now, you must have realized that I have not met him, although I’ve a feeling I already know him quite well. Dearest Raja, please try to always remain the person you are, Happy Birthday!

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.”

(1971 – Solo – Regional – Chhattisgarhi)

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).
