“Life is short but art and for that matter music is permanent. There is no death of a true art and so is it with music.”

These are the words of one who is known as the ‘Gentleman Musician’ amongst the community of music directors and musicians, both in Bombay and in Calcutta.  Vistas Ardeshir Balsara – a name that is part of a long list of very talented musicians, whose contributions to the making of the film music has been immense.  These musicians, instrumentalists and arrangers, most of whom were  experienced and capable of being music directors in their own right, rarely got to appear in the limelight and be recognized for their work.  V Balsara is one such gifted musicians who did get the opportunity to step out from behind the curtain, and be known for his art.  I am sure all will remember the iconic song “Ae Mere Dil Kahin Aur Chal” (‘Daag’, 1952) in all its flavors.  The piano accordion in this song is played by him.

Remembering V Balsara on the anniversary of his passing away (24th March).

Glancing through the comments from the past couple of days, I got a shock to see the RIP comment posted by Avinash ji.  Goodness no, but Krishna Kalle is no more.  I quickly searched for more news online, but am dismayed to see almost nil coverage of this news.  A couple of news sites carried brief items of just a small paragraph or two.  She passed away last Sunday, 15th March, after a brief but serious illness.  The last rites were performed on Monday.  She was 74.

The Many Colors of Love #28 – The Stories of Broken Hearts
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so wrote the scribe

ik dil ke tukde hazaar huye
koi yahaan gira koi wahaan gira
(‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’, 1948)

Walking the passages of love, one encounters enchanting emotions and charming music – heady feelings that will lure heart and mind into gardens with blossoming springs, chirping birds and fragrant flowers.  But the discerning eyes will also see, the pathways strewn with fragile fragments, unobtrusively lying by the side, that tell another story.  These are the delicate pieces of broken hearts that have suffered the pains of separation and the agony of desertion, an agony that is at times, too intense for the sensitive hearts to bear.  And the feelings inside are as if the heart has been torn asunder, crushed and broken into a thousand pieces.  And then thrown by the wayside.

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 5

‘Rafi Ke Dard Bhare Geet’ is a famous genre of Rafi songs.  Some of the most endearing and touching songs in Hindi films are the sad songs sung by Rafi Sb.  Almost every hindi movie has a sad song.  Amongst them, the soulful singing by Rafi Sb in these songs is widely acknowledgde as the best.  There are many movies where Rafi Sb has only one song even when he is not the favored singing voice for the film.  That song generally is a song for the second line artist, or a background song, or a title song, and in many cases, it is a sad song.  Then there are many movies in which all male songs are in the voice of Rafi Sb.  There are movies where he sang romantic song, light hearted song, sad song, comic song, qawwali, folk and spiritual songs for different actors.  There are numerous examples for both these cases.

After almost four decades of a self imposed silence, finally the life breath behind this charming voice faded away, this day eleven years ago. A voice that was the darling of the listeners, for more than two decades prior to her reclusive phase.

Remembering Suraiya on the anniversary of her passing away (31st January).

And so wrote the scribe

wafaa jin se ki
bewafaa ho gaye
wo waade mohabbat ke
kya ho gaye

Nowhere other than in love, is the weight felt more heavily of sarcasm of that age old phrase – “promises are meant to be broken”. After the flowers and dreams, the sun and the stars, it is inevitable that the reality checks in. The reality of life that is – the reality of relations, the reality of social variances, the reality of the difficulties of life that will incessantly continue to overwhelm, and above all the realities of personalities. More often than not, it is the personal motivations, personal desires and dogmas, personal fancies and choices, that manifest as roadblocks and potholes on the road to satisfied love. Those who are not well adept at managing and driving around these obstacles, more often than not, find themselves in the wells of misery.
