Today (22 july 2014) is the birth anniversary of Edwina Violette, affectionately called Edu by her aquiantances. She was born in a Military Hospital and the Matron of the hospital gave her the Name Edwina after Lady Mountbatton.

She had made her debut in Hindi movies in 1958. She was there in Light House (1958), a movie produced and directed by G P Sippy and starring Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Johnny Walker, Nigar Sultana, Master Pakkoo, Naazi, Rajen Kapoor etc. She remembers that she had appeared in a scene in this movie which was picturised outdoors on the Juhu beach.

She worked in Hindi movies for one decade and then emigrated to England in late 1960s just when she had begun to attract attention with songs viz. O haseena zulfon waali jaane jahaan(Teesri Manzil), where she was the “zulfon waali haseena”.

She is leading a contented retired life ever since. She is active in facebook and she is facebook friend with many regulars of this blog. A few regulars have also met her, for example, Memsaab, Harvey etc.

On the occasion of Edwina’s birth anniversary, here is a lovely and lively fun duet from “Light House” (1958). The song is sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of this song is available. Rafi excel sheet mentions that the song was picturised on Johny Walker. But who lip synced in Geeta Dutt’s voice is net mentioned. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This is the seventh and final song from “Light House” (1958) to appear in the blog. So, “Light House” (1958) now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations –45 (Song number 10000)

Writeup by Atul
————————–
So the eagerly awaited moment is here. It was planned to happen on 19 july 2014, on the sixth anniversary of the blog, but that was not to be and it has finally happened one day later. Paucity of time necessitated by urgent personal and even official engagements matters were the cause for this delay by one day. I also had to reluctantly defer three eagerly awaited writeups, viz introductory posts on M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh, Raja and Sudhir ji. They very graciously agreed to have their introductions deferred in view of the circumstances. I am very thankful for their understanding.

If one notices, a lion’s share of the writeups for the last few days have been done by Sudhir ji. He has been spending unimaginable hours on the blog for the last few days despite being tied up in his own personal and professional engagements. And this 10000th post is very much a result of his own initiative, meticulous research had hard work. My heartfelt thanks goes to Sudhir ji without whom this blog would not be what it is today.

Coming to the occasion, It is like the occasion of an Indian wedding (ladke ki shaadi or more like ladki ki shaadi), where you have to invite all near and dear ones, and sometimes you have to cajole people to come and attend. You also have to deal with different service providers-catering, florists, transportantion etc and you are often on tenterhooks when some of the service providers are not turning up at the appointed time and place. And obstacles, staunch adherents of Murphy’s law that they are , arrive like uninvited guests. The obstacles that I was up against for the last few days were such that it was becoming difficult to follow the schedule that was already decided upon.

The schedule had to be deferred by one day. There were no option because otherwise the 10k moment could have got delayed even further. Quite fortuitously the next day is a sunday so we all have a full day of holiday in which to await the moment without any other engagements.

This journey has been an amazing one. A one man show kept getting members and a few of them kept getting metamorphosed into commentors, lyrics contributors, articles contributors etc. The idea of introducing all the regular contributors to the blog in a series of articles leading upto the big moment has turned out to be an extremely popular decision. Not just the readers, even the contributors writing these introduction articles have enjoyed themselves. As many as five contributors have written introductory articles for others, which shows that many of the regulars have become acquainted with each other as a result of their online interactions. Indeed there are several regulars who have in fact either met other regulars or they have had contacts either telephonically or through e mails. What is more, regulars from this blog have made friends with members of other HFM sites.

What had started with the aim of being just another blog has become one of the shining examples of the power of online collaborations which had led to the creation of an amazing collection of authentic information on the topic of HFM. Unlike most other online sources, this blog takes pains to cross check and verify information that most other sites blindly copy without verification.

The blog had progressed in several areas and it has become a complex site to maintain unlike in the past. There is so much data in the blog that some of the pages take considerable time to open. These are matters that will need to be addressed in future.

Not that we have progressed in all areas. I find that the average number of daily visitors (3000 plus these days)had reduced drastically compared to the figures of the past (figure of 4700 plus in 2011), but the important fact is that the blog has continued to attact the attention of people who matter, viz quality readers and music lovers and also celebrities and their relatives.

The mark of 10,000 posts is a landmark that takes us to the five figure mark. This figure is a mindboggling figure. I recall that Raja had came to meet me in 2010. The blog then had 4000 songs in it and I has told Raja that I had about 6000 songs with me in all. Both of us had considered that figure to be an enourmous figure. And now we are talking of 10,000th post. :) And now we find that we still have lots of songs that have not yet been covered in the blog !

This blog is a labour of love as has been stressed many a times. And the fact that this blog has continued on and on for six years shows what love and passion for a cause combined with the ability to harness the capabilities of likeminded contributors can achieve.

I have likened the blog to quite a few things in the past. Today I feel like likening it to the coach of an Indian Railway train. No, not the general compartment, but AC sleeper, where the co travellers are of good upbringing and calibre and blessed with qualities of sharing, caring, respectfulness, generosity and tolerance towards others.

I am fond of saying that the most universal currency in the world is the currency of love and respect and this currency is accepted everywhere, including in the animal world as well. If one thinks about it, the high quality individuals are contributing their mite in the blog because they feel loved and respected in this blog that makes then go the extra mile in their contributions and involvement in the blog. My abovementioned theory has applications in the field of human resource management, I feel. :)

Coming to the ten thousandth song, it is the rarest of rarest of rarets HFM song and it will redefine the generally accepted view about Hindi movie records. It is popularly believed that the oldest Hindi film record was issued in 1932. The song under discussion is a Hindi film record of 1931 ! So, the bar gets raised to the uppermost possible level !

Personally I have little information about this song as all the research and digging up in this case has been done up by Sudhir Ji. So the readers will get to learn about this song from him whose writeup follows next.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose love and support (in the form of the most widely accepted corrency, remember) makes all of us feel extremely enriched and fulfilled and that in turn keeps us motivated to go on and on.

10k is a great milestone, but one can be sure that we will not rest on our laurels but will continue on move on and on in this musical journey. I thank one and all. Let us move on to the next milestones. In the meanwhile let us savour this song which will be heard by a vast majority of music lovers for the first time ever.

————————-

After all the days of preparation, communication and waiting, celebrations are very much in order. As I try to search for ideas and sentences, for a moment I find myself thoughtless, and numb. For the past so many weeks, the drive and the actions have all been geared towards reaching this milestone. Now that we are here, the mind calls for a quiet moment, just to allow the message to sink in.

The past two weeks have been such a whiz. At times they seemed to be still and unmoving, and at other times, it seemed that the pace could not be hastened any more. The wonderful spectacle of the past two weeks has been the unveiling of messages and articles, one by one, from practically all members of the team, and more importantly, about each one of the members of this team. Uncertain and unfamiliar as to how this idea of introductions would work, we simply went ahead with a schedule, arranging it such that every member of the team would be actively participating and contributing. Looking back on the storm of activity over the past two weeks, this experimentation has succeeded well beyond imaginations. The degree of participation, at the apparent level, has been immense, as folks have spent virtual time with each other, knowing more about one another, and even sharing more in comments.

At the subliminal level, once again there has been a spurt in activity as amount of emails exchanged directly between members of the group went up significantly, as there continued to be eager and anticipatory queries about the progress and keeping track of the numbers still to be logged. The purpose of enhancing familiarity and increasing exchange between the group members, I daresay has been magnificently achieved.

And the fun, of reaching this grand milestone, has been enhanced many times over. Instead of one, two or a handful, this time we have been regaled with a plethora of perspectives on what the achievement of this milestone means to each one of us, and the special flavors and sentiments that are shared through special selections – gosh it has been a kaleidoscope moving at a very rapid pace.

The numbers, they speak for themselves. A lot has been presented, and from various perspectives – number of visitors, the distribution of contributions, the time spent and the pace at which the progress has been made over months and years – there is a huge variety of methods by which this repository can be analyzed. It the sheer volume of data that is being assigned to each post and its content, that makes this blog so heavenly rich in substance and in its subject matters. Let me add a couple of perspectives here.

For each post, there are almost five dozen different items of information that become available, just by the manner in which the various parts of the post and the blog are structured. That is such an enormous amount of data that it now need more detailed methods for it to be arranged and managed properly. We are now graduating from manually maintained tables on the blog, to some sophisticated excel file structures, and now on to a formal data base.

Another aspect to view is how we are handling multi part and multi version songs, as also songs that are apparently duplicated across films and between film and non-film categories. And so, although we have reached the magic number of Ten Thousand in terms of posts on the blog, the actual number of songs that are accommodated within these posts is much more. Actually a few hundreds more. And by the way, just loved how Raja ji presented the many different ways we now have to come to terms with a five digit number. Ah yes, the “Ten times Ten times Ten times Ten” algorithm will boggle even the most astute mathematical minds. As I was reading that analysis by him, my mind went back about 2 decades, when the Y2K problem hit the entire world. As the turn of century was approaching, the profound realization set in that once we hit the year 2000, there will be a very specific and definite need to write the year as a four digit number, instead of a two digit number. A change as minute as it apparently was, turned out to be a near disaster for the computerized systems, and huge fortunes had to be applied just to make this minute change in the systems worldwide. So much for our presumed expectations of how some seemingly very insignificant attributes have such a huge impact on how we operate.

But I digress. Y2K is behind us over almost a decade and half, and today we are gathered around (our individual computers :) ) waiting for the ticker to change from 9999 to 10000, and signal a complete change in the level that this blog is all about. Seriously, there has been an eager flurry of emails as the participants have probably been wondering at the pace at which the day’s progress is being made. As I sit at my keyboard, aligning the words in this write up to the reality that we are late by a few hours, yet once again the realization surfaces – the amount of effort and dedication required to maintain this blog is so enormous and yes, also demanding.

Atul ji has been having some very busy schedule on his work front, included a four point travel part of last week and earlier this week. And then again today, he has had to make a round trip to Nagpur. In a normal life, all these can be handled and planned for. With a blog such as this to take care and manage, the difficulties are multiplied many times over. I can only marvel at the tenacity and the relentlessness of this gentleman, to carry forward this indomitable endeavor.

Let me rein in back the impetuous and raring horses of my mind, and let us talk music. The focus being the Hindi film song, the scope and the volume of this field is immensely vast. Granted that we are a professed blog that “discusses Bollywood songs of yesteryears”, but let us not forget that every year, we are adding one more ‘yesteryear’ to the scope of our space. Further granted that our pace of covering the number of songs in a year is faster than the number of new songs being created and added to the mix, we should also remember that we are working with a huge backlog. Just the first five decades, the Geet Kosh tells us, is worth a shade less than 44,000 (or as Raja ji would put it, FORTY FOUR THOUSAND) songs. Add to it the next three and a half decades, and we are talking no less than approximately SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND songs to be dealt with.

So that is another fresh perspective all in itself. The journey only gets more interesting as we pause for a brief party today (ah yes, Atul ji, when and where is the celebration party?? :) :) ). For tomorrow we simply just put down our heads and continue the onwards march, one more song at a time, and one more century milestone at a time. Actually that brings another thought – this significance of this milestone and its celebration – well it is not going to be matched for quite some time now. And when I say quite some time, I do mean quaaaaaaaaite some time. For having cracked the 10K target, then the 15K and 20K are going to be relatively minor in comparison, and the next BIG ONE (as they say in surfing) is now going to 25K. Ah well, we are all going to be gainfully occupied for many many years to come. Now that is a BIG thought. :)

And let me add another twist to it. The mysteries and the information related uncertainties from the earlier decades are far from being resolved, if ever. As we expand the scope and add more decades to focus on, so will be multiplied the mysteries of unlisted songs and unreleased films. Well on thing is sure; the fun in this field in never going to end. And Peevesie, we are going to need a lot of help from you.

Time to catch some breath. And time to pass around the congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We knew it could be done, it had to be done. And we have done it.

For this special occasion, I have dug out a very special item. It is the rarest of the rarest of rare breed of discoveries, very much in line with our “Ten times Ten times Ten times Ten” accomplishment. There have been references to this in research papers, and allusions to it in discussion forums and articles. The records of the record company (HMV) have been available all along, but the discovery of the physical records themselves have been the key.

For the longest of times, it has been established that the first records of Hindi film songs were made in 1932. The accepted facts are that the film is ‘Madhuri’ and that two records were cut for this film, meaning four songs of this film are the first Hindi film songs ever recorded.

But there is more research that comes from the work of Micheal Kinnear, author of ‘A Definitive Discography of Indian Music’ and from the doctoral thesis of Sh. Narendra Shrimali, titled ‘Music of Theatre and Hindi Cinema 1900 – 1950′. This PhD research project has been published in book form, with the same title. Sh. Shrimali’s work is a thoroughly researched dissertation on the interplay and influence of stage plays and theatre on the early years of cinema. In the early years, both for silent and then for talkie films, the source of dramatic material for cinema came from the trans-positioning of the readymade subject materials already available with the theatre industry. When the films were silent, it was the themes and plots that were imported into cinema. And when the films started to talk in 1931, then the even the music and the song was imported from the theatre and used in the cinema. Sh. Shrimali’s book makes a very interesting reading, as it traces the history behind the music in talkie film industry in India.

It established based on the work by the above mentioned research workers, that in the time prior to the cutting of the records of film ‘Madhuri’ in 1932, there may have been or that there are, instances wherein the songs of a film were released on records, without any specific reference to the film itself. For all practical purposes, such records have always been treated as private or NFS recordings. The analysis and data digging done by these two researchers establishes at least one specific case in which the songs of the film are released on records, albeit without a specific reference connecting them. It is possible that the songs may have been recorded earlier and then used in the film, or that they were first a part of the film, and then were released as private recordings. One argument given in favor is that in all likelihood, and due to the infancy of the art form and the industry itself, the film producers did not attach any significance to associating the film with songs on record. Maybe that realization had to wait for more than one year to set in (i.e. in 1932).

Shrilmali ji refers to the 1931 film ‘Trapped’ (also titled as ‘Farebi Jaal’). The booklet of this film lists 6 songs, three of them being sung by Durga Khote and the remaining three being rendered in the voice of Master Vasant Amrut of Surat. It is established by his research, and with detailed reference to the earlier work by Michael Kinnear, that two songs sung by Master Vasant for this film are available on 78 rpm records, which do not carry the name of the film. On pages 70 and 71 of the publication, he summarizes as follows: [quote] “. . .if we consider above mentioned facts and evidences we should consider that the first ever Gramophone Record of Hindi cinema was not N5622 but they were P13474 and P13542″.

(NOTE: N5622 refers to the record number on which the songs of film ‘Madhuri’ (1932) are available and P13474 / P13542 refer to the record number on which the songs of film ‘Trapped’ (1931) are available).

Today, I am uploading and presenting this rarest of rarest of rare discoveries. The physical record P13542, is available, in the collection of my collector friend, and he has graciously, with some coaxing, allowed me the liberty to upload this song online and post it at the 10,000th song on our blog.

It is a befitting salutation, both to the blog and its team on one hand, and on the other, a befitting tribute to the Hindi cinema. For the first time anywhere in the online world, we have a Hindi film song from 1931 posted on Atul-Song-A-Day. A momentous occasion calling for a historically vital song recording.

There is not much other information available for this film, other than the film booklet. Once again, the benefaction of another dear friend and guide, Harmandir Singh ji, has been instrumental in getting details of the lyrics of this song, from the film booklet which part of his collection. He has been generously helpful to make a scan of the booklet and share it with me.

The film is produced under the banner of Indian Art Productions, Bombay. It is a social drama directed by M Bhavani. The cast of actors include Inakshi Ramrao, Arundhati Sansaare, Durga Khote, Sushila Devi, Smt Singh, Waman Talpade, Jal Khambatta, Baburao Sansaare and Manohar Kapoor etc. The name of the music director is not available. The name of lyricist is mentioned as Master Vasant himself.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations –44 (Post number 9999)
- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A DAY OF JOY- TO REMEMBER FOR EVER !

In a Man’s life, there are occasions of happiness like Graduation, Job, marriage, First child etc. These are the milestones in one’s life and are celebrated with joy shared by the near and dear ones.

Today I too feel like celebrating because ” OUR ” Blog has touched a milestone- THE 10,000th SONG !

My heartiest Congratulations to ATUL ji, who is doing a great job. I feel his must be the only Blog on the entire Internet, which can boast of 10,000 Hindi film and non film songs (from 1932 onwards), with proper Lyrics. This is a place for Nostalgia, for thousands of Music lovers from almost 200 countries of the World.

I feel not only Happy, but also proud that I am a part of the Team which contributes to this Blog. With over 300 articles, over 500 Film stories and more that 500 information Tit bits on almost every topic related to old films/music, I feel like the famous Mythological Squirrel in the Ramayana.

Thank you Atul ji for providing a platform, where the group could showcase their skills in posting songs, lyrics and articles, thereby contributing to the efforts of making this Blog-A Complete Knowledge portal for Hindi film songs.

In 2010, when I learnt operating Computer, while surfing to find sites for free downloading, I bumped into this site. I was impressed with the kind of songs and the style of operating so much that I have stayed here since then. Slowly I started giving my comments on songs and in Sept. 2012,Atul ji encouraged me to write an article post for the Blog. My first post came up here on 1-10-2012.

This Blog has changed my life for the better. I never had a problem of spending time after retirement, but writing and participating on this blog filled me with a new enthusiasm and I became a busy person. At times, I overdo this and then suffer in health. It has always been a pleasure to share knowledge with interested people. When I read that people are liking my writing, I feel contented. The thanks go to Atul ji, undoubtedly.

So, ATUL ji, thank you once again and heartiest Congratulations for achieving this Milestone of 10,000 songs. May God bless you to succeed always in your endeavour.

On this happy occasion, I wish to introduce our readers to a Singer from the yesteryears. He was unique. He was patriotic. He was MASTER VASANT AMRIT of Surat.

Most of our readers will not know who this person is. Our senior readers from Gujarat MAY have heard his name in their younger days. Master Vasant was a singer from Gujarat, who became famous all over Indian subcontinent, just because of ONE song. This song was one of the most popular songs in the pre-independence period. It was banned by the British raj, but it was sung by patriotic people privately.

Master Vasant was born on 2-2-1902, at Jaam Khambaliya, in Gujarat. His father was Amritlal Madan ji. They were Saraswat Bramhins. His father was a Keertankar from ‘Adityaram gharana’. He had learnt under Pt. onkarnath ji. Well versed in Gujarati,Sanskrit and Urdu literature,he was a voracious reader.Amritlal taught young Vasant how to play instruments. he was taught classical music and Hari Keertan.

Young Vasant became the ” Rajgayak ” of Jaamnagar state. He was awarded the title of ‘ Sangeet Ratna’ for his singing. Thousands of people would gather to listen to his singing.

He used to sing in special occasions like marriages etc in the Royal family, and in such cases the guards used to have a tough time to control the surging crowds gathered to see and hear his singing. Maharaja of Bhavnagar too awarded him the title of ‘ Sangeet Bhasker “.

His singing became so famous that his stage shows were arranged from Rangoon to Karachi. In 1936-37,he was specially invited to sing before Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira ji in Rangoon.

Many records of his singing were popular like, ‘Idhar sudama udhar kanhiaya’, ‘mathura mein sahi-Gokul mein sahi ‘, ‘ Phool rahi hai belariya’, ‘Do din ka Mela’ and many more. His most famous and popular song was ” Meri mata ke sar par Taaj rahe”. It was written in 1928 by shri Madhav ji Shukla Moradabadwale. The song became famous and thousands of records were sold everywhere. It became a Patriot’s favourite everywhere. It was sung during the Prabhat pheris too. This information reached the British Government and they decided to ban this song as it contained words like Gandhi ji and Vande Mataram. Orders were issued and the officers reached the Gramophone company and the original Dye Negative of this record was destroyed. Further all records in the markets were confiscated and ” possessing, singing or playing this record ” became a serious crime against the Government. However.the patriots used to play and listen to this song within closed doors.

The ban, declared in 1930 was lifted in or around 1945, with the efforts of Kanhiayalal Munshi ji. But then soon ,in 1947, the country became Independent and the song and the record were soon forgotten.

Due to his singing skills and good looks, he was offered several films, but he acted only in one Bilingual film- ‘ Krishnabhakta Bodana”-1944 in Gujarati and Hindi.The Heroine of this film was Rani Premlata. In the Hindi film he sang 3 songs- 1. Jaan liya pehchan liya 2. Main chor bana Prabhu tera and 3. Saari daaliyon mein meethi ek daali. This was his only connection with the film world.

There was another actor named Vasant, so he always wrote his name as Master Vasant Amrit to avoid confusion. After retirement he lived in Surat with his wife and widowed sick sister. His financial condition was not good. In those days singers did not get Royalty from HMV, they got paid lump sum way once only. He was getting a meagre pension from the Gujarat Government. His health also deteriorated and in 1985, he was paralysed below waist making him a handicap for ever.

Famous writer and winner of five sahitya academy awards, shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji traced him to a society in Surat, in Bungalow no. 3 of a society on Varachha Road. This too needed lot of efforts and contacting many friends for information. When this news was published in local papers, some help poured in. When he actually met Master Vasant and saw his condition,he decided to do something about it. Pandyaji spoke to Gujarat Chief Minister Chimanbhai Patel to grant an award of Rs. 1 lakh to master Vasant. This scheme of finacial assistance to senior artists was already in existence in Gujarat. The CM, after listening to the condition of Master Vasant agreed immediately and gave orders accordingly. But alas ! The crude bureaucracy of the Govt. has its own wishes and speed. Nothing moved and after some time Pandyaji again took up the issue at the officer level. promises given, but no action.

Master Vasant was getting older and nearing his last days. Pandyaji took lot of efforts through the CM again and many related officers. He wanted that before master Vasant dies, he should get the help. In the month of January 1991, master Vasant was admitted in Hospital for the last time. Fortunately, due to Pandyaji’s untiring efforts, Master Vasant finally got his money, with all arrears etc, by a special courier who gave the amount to him personally. Master Vasant was happy and blessed shri Pandya ji from heart. Within next 4 days MASTER VASANT AMRIT OF SURAT died and a legend came to an end, on 19-1-1991.

Shri Rajanikumar Pandya ji has written all this in details and in his inimitable flowing style, in his book ” Aapki Parchhainyan “. When I was reading his description, tears were rolling down my eyes. My mind was filled with disgust towards Government’s apathy in looking after artistes who had made that state Proud. But for the unstinted and selfless efforts of shri Pandya ji,Master Vasant would have never got any help before his death ! My hats off to shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji.

Well,I thought that today’s celebrations call for an equally important song, which was the favourite of patriots before Independence. So,here is the once famous song” Meri maata ke sar par Taj rahe” sung soulfully by MASTER VASANT AMRIT ji.

(My thanks to shri Rajnikumar Pandyaji for his article and other materials which he sent to me,Harish Raghuvanshi ji for information,dates of b & d,and the original song in MP3,and to Atul ji for uploading it on You Tube).

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations –40 (Post number 9995)
- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Now we know that a chocolate cake happened. In Cochin. Peevesie’s Mom baked the cake to celebrate the 6th anniversary of the setting up of this blog by Atul ji. And she and her husband shared it amongst themselves. Ah well, I am sure it must have tasted good. It is high time now that digital technology should step up and allow for sending chocolate cakes over email. :) And of course, Atul ji is so busy wrapping up the 10K celebration posts and also doing a lot of travel simultaneously, that I am sure he has not yet seen my message of ‘where is the party?’.

However, full marks to him, and full support. The burden he carries and the effort and time he applies across all tasks for this blog, while managing a working life – kudos to him, and more strength and resolve to him.

As we are arriving at the target, I am trying to supplement some required posts with special numbers. I have been thinking about this for a couple of days. When this blog started, as has been described by Raja ji, it was driven by farmaishes that came from him and many other readers. Over the years, the farmaishes page is probably the heaviest page on the blog – it takes a long time to load; hmmm. . . maybe barring the list of songs by movie. And then this thought struck me. Here were at nine thousand nine hundred ninety something today, and for the past six years it has been Atul ji catering to the farmaishes of the large number of readers and followers. And I wondered. What would be Atul ji’s farmaish, if we asked him. And so I decided to do this special post, to be based on a farmaish from him.

He has again been back and forth in travel over the past two days. I sent him an email with my farmaish for his farmaish. He eventually responded after a couple of reminders (I am sure being back and forth in train most of the time, he was not able to timely access his emails). And so comes this song and this write up, specially on the farmaish of Atul ji. :)

Today, my mind goes back to March of 2012, when Atul ji wrote to me about his official visit to Delhi, and we had planned to meet. Maybe we both have written about our meeting in earlier posts. He had meetings till about 3.30 pm and I was then supposed to pick him up from the railway guest house he was staying at around 4 pm. I reached there. He said he would be waiting near the main gate of that place. I did not see anyone. So I called him. Actually he was there, but he was also sitting in a car, that had been made available to him for his visit. Soon as I called him and identified my car, he says he is sitting in the car just behind where I had parked. I immediately got down from the car and turned around. I saw a somewhat short person, lean and sprightly, wearing glasses and sporting a moustache, get out of the car behind me. I walked towards him, and really no introductions seemed necessary. Without even asking the question “Is that Atul ji?”, I simply walked over to him and hugged him. I am sure he must have been taken by surprise, because for a moment I could feel he did not know how to respond. :) :)

Anyway, our first exchange was simply my saying “Lets go in my car”. He leaned over the window of his car and instructed the drive to be off for the day, and then come the next day at the prescribed time. After that we drove home. In the few weeks prior to when Atul ji came to Delhi, I had had the good fortune of hosting Nalin ji Shah, and Harmandir at my home, and through them there had been many new introductions that happened for me. So as they say, my home and my mind was still abuzz with the prior visitors. And then sone-pe-suhaaga, Atul ji also came to visit in the same span of time. It was really great.

Atul ji is a sharp person. I am sure the readers are well aware of that. And I assure you, the ‘Atulisms’ in conversation are equally regaling. Otherwise a quiet person most of the time, he will be energized when we talk about the blog and Hindi film songs. For other discussions, he chooses not to take the lead unless requested, and will quietly sneak in one of his ‘Atulistic’ observations into the conversation in progress. Of course with the desired results :) :)

There is a lot more that would like to write. A lot of that has been put down in these columns before, and by so many contributors. People those who have met him and even people those who have not. Being in Delhi, I have the good fortune that Atul ji has a regular if not very frequent visit that he needs to make to the headquarters here. And that is always a wonderful opportunity to get together with him, which is always a pleasure.

And so, for a change, here is a song that is on farmaish from Atul ji. This song is from the 1945 film ‘Raagini’. The music is by Pt Amarnath. The songs of this film are penned by three poets – Mela Ram Wafaa, Naazim Panipati, and Zaheer Kashmiri. The specific lyricist for this song is however not identified. The film is production from the banner of Maheshwari Pictures, Punjab. So apparently this would have been produced in Lahore at that time. The cast of actors reads as follows – Smriti, Aruna, Najm, Pran, Gyani, Romesh, Bhaag Singh, Baij Sharma, Nazar, Mumtaz, Shahnaz, Roofi. Only the name of Pran is familiar from this list; I believe the others would be local to the Lahore film industry at that time.

This is a wonderful song, wonderfully composed by Pt Amarnath. The pace is rapid and the rendition has been handled very well by Zohrabai. On special request by our dear Atul ji. A very special song.

Listen and enjoy.

“Sati Narmada” (1950) is a movie few people have heard about. This forgotten movie was directed by Ishwarlal for Abhimanyu Chitra productions. The movie had Jeevan, Sulochana Chatterji, Umakant, Salvi, Babu, Raje etc in it.

Here is a song from this movie which is just as obscure as the movie itself. Vinodini Dixit is the lyricist. Neelkath Tripathi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This must be one of the forgotten gems created by Khemchand Prakash.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song- Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera (Sati Narmada)(1950) Singer-Vinodini Dixit, Lyrics-Neelkanth Tiwari, MD-Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Jag mein koi na mera aa
jag mein koi na mera
Prabhuji mohe
ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

mere bhaag chamak kar phoote
man ke taar jhanak kar toote
mere bhaag chamak kar phoote
man ke taar jhanak kar toote
saare sang sahaare chhoote
saare sang sahaare chhoote
sankat ne hai ghera
Prabhuji mohe
sankat ne hai ghera
Prabhuji mohe
ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

Girija maa ?? dhara ki
Suraj chanda saare saathi
Girija maa ?? dhara ki
Suraj chanda saare saathi
maangoon bhiksha praan priya ki
maangoon bhiksha praan priya ki
bhar de aanchal mera
Prabhu ji more
bhar de aanchal mera
Prabhuji mohe
Ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

meri bujhti jyot jagaa do
o o o o
meri bujhti jyot jagaa do o
khil kar murjhe phool khilaa do o o
khil kar murjhe phool khilaa do
jeewan chandaa ko chamkaa do

Today, we are on track to reach the 10K target. And yes, of course, we must also proclaim the 6th anniversary of this blog. Way back in 2008, this day is the day that Atul made a small start with a song from the film ‘Anokhi Raat’. As Sadanand ji has written in his post yesterday,

gair saath aate gaye aur kaarwaan bantaa gaya

Getting to the amazing size of ten thousand songs in this collection – I am sure is a feat that is unparalleled anywhere in the history of online repositories of Hindi film and non film songs. As we are slowly moving towards this eagerly awaited target, I am today posting some songs that have something special about them. In this post, I present an unlisted and presumably an unknown song from the 1961 film ‘Shama’. And what a gem of a ghazal this one is.

It is really a wonder that this ghazal is not listed in the film booklet, it does not appear in the Geet Kosh listing, and no records were made for it. Once you hear this, you will also join me in wonder that this song has gone un-referred anywhere, in any compilation and in any material written about this film and its songs. I would think that only the people who have seen the film and remember about it, would be aware of this song. By that measure, this song is almost as if an unknown song is discovered, and that makes it special to be part of this special set of posts today.

A few days ago, I had posted a rare ghazal from the same film. That ghazal too is a unique and rare one, in that it is sung by actress Nimmi, likely the only film song item that we can find in her voice. In that write up I had put the following closing note

(NOTE: A short note about the songs in this film. The Geek Kosh lists 11 songs for this film. 10 songs are already posted on this blog. With this post, we should be completing the songs of this film. But are we? No, I think not. There is still a surprise from this film awaiting to be revealed. Shortly. :) )

So today I bring on that surprise item from this film. This is a ghazal that is sung in a mushaira by the hero Parvez (role played by Vijay Dutt). The setting is a very traditional one, all the male participants and audience in one part of the hall, and all the lady audience in another part separated by a purdah. The rendition is also very traditional, with frequent applause and emotional participation by the audience, as the ghazal progresses.

The lyrics are by Kaifi Azmi and the tuning and pace is arranged by Ghulam Mohammed. I mention tune and pace only, since there is no musical accompaniment, as the setting is a mushaira and the poets are to present their verses in their own voice. That is what makes this rendition so very interesting. I will not be surprised to find that this most likely is a live recording and not a playback. The singing voice is of Vijay Dutt himself. In the video clip, we can see Roshan Ara (role played by Suraiya) sitting in ladies side of the hall, along with her friend (role played by Indira Bansal). On stage there is one person in white achkan, who is a close friend on Parvez in the film. He is a very familiar character artist of that time, but I am not able to recall his name. Also, sitting on the dias, sporting a goatee beard and a fez cap is actor Lotan. Both of them present their ghazals before Parvez stands up to deliver his rendition.

Does this now close the list of songs for this film? Probably yes. In this same mushaira setting, there are actually two more ghazals, that are somewhat shorter, and somewhat in a lighter note. They too are not listed. I will probably post them together in another post shortly.

And so, listen to this wonderful gem of a ghazal that has thus far escaped being listed anywhere in print or online.

Enjoy.

sach kehte ho tum dil ka bharosa to nahin hai
mehfil mein machal jaaye ab aisa to nahin hai

It is true, what you say
This heart is not worth of trust
(But I say, it has improved)
It no longer is like
It will slip and be wayward in a gathering

kyun hat’ti nahin parde se betaab nigaahen
parde ke udhar meri tamanna to nahin hai

My impatient glances
Just can’t seem to get away
From this screen of drapes
Is it that the one I desire
Is present on the other side

sab husn ke kaayal hain magar meri tareh se
be-dekhe kisi ne tumhen chaaha to nahin hai

Every person reveres beauty
It is such in this world
Ah, but has anyone grew fond of you
Even without seeing you
As I have

kyun jhukne lagi aankhen chhalakne lagey saagar
maikhaane ke baahar koi pyaasa to nahin hai

Why is it that your glance is lowered
And wine cups of your eyes overflow
Is there someone yearning and thirsty
Standing outside the tavern

aa jaao ke hum apna jahaan aap basaa len
duniya ye kisi kaam ki duniya to nahin hai

Come let us build a new world
All our own
This world, this place
Is simply not worth anything

farmaane lagey dekh ke wo dil ka tadapnaa
hai dard magar itna ziyaada to nahin hai

On seeing my heart in agony
This is what she had to say
Yes, there is pain in the heart
But not enough as yet

parwaana ghazal aaj teri kar gayi jaadu
ye faiz usi mast nazar ka to nahin hai

My verses have created a magic
In this gathering today
Ah, so it must be
The graceful favor of her
Exuberant glances

(NOTE: ‘parwaana’ is the ‘takhallus’ (pen name) used by the hero Parvez, in the film).

Fortunately or unfortunately (for my friends, readers and followers) I belong to the variety of people who take pleasure in bringing out the hidden rare gems from HFM, usually from the 60s and the 70s.

Friends, we are on the grandstand day today, now slowly moving towards the coveted 10K target which will be reached later in the day today. In the interim past few days, the pace has somewhat been slow, since Atul ji himself has been traveling on work for some of the days in the past two weeks.

Sadanand Kamath, a pillar of this blog is one of the seniormost regulars of this blog. His introduction in his blog makes for an impressive reading. It mentions:

Post graduate in Monetary Economics, worked in Reserve Bank of India and thereafter with a major Bond House until retirement on August 31, 2006. Did consultancy work in the area of financial markets with a major industrial house which I gave up in June 2009 to devote more time to my family, travelling and trekking.

Mr Sadanand Kamath appears to have discovered the blog in july 2011. He began to comment in the blog from that month onwards. He first sent me a song lyrics on 8 october 2011 for a song of “Doraaha” (1952) with the request that it may be used on 25 oct 2011, which was Sahir Ludhianvi’s anniversary.

Introducing Shekhar Gupta – one of the quieter albeit active voices on the blog. Over the past two years, I have been in email communication with him, on various topics related to film music and the blog. He comes across as an unpretentious and humble personality, that belies his stature and accomplishments. In recent weeks, when I sent him an email request to get some personal information from him, his response started with such statements of humbleness and gratefulness, in a very friendly tone.
