(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 !

(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).

(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.

Kitni raahat hai dil toot jaane ke baad
zindagi se mile maut aane ke baad

Aah! the bliss of being free of illusions. As if someone has removed the coloured glasses from my eyes through which the world used to look colourful. The feeling is not always pleasant but it is a honest and truer state to be in. Keeping one's eyes closed so that one is able to avoid the unpleasant things and pretend that all is well, is a self defeating attitude. Once the truth is out in the open and accepted than it is something one faces and deals with in our own way. Out of the clouds of delusions. Only then the correct runway can be found and safe landing in possible.

(1978 – Solo)

This solo song that got picked for 1978 is a real surprise. Wonderful gem from an obscure film. A song that was heard occasionally, before fading away from radio waves and settling into the quicksand of memories. As I was browsing the list for 1978, this song strummed lost memories of absolutely lovely songs and I had to pick it as tops.
