Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 10
—————————————————–

[Note of Apology: This write up has been in the making since two nights, including the “telephonic interview”.  Apologies that I was not able to post it before midnight yesterday. But then the thought comes – it is still 19th July somewhere in the world. Ah yes, our Khyati Ben in Los Angeles, USA,  is still working through the 19th.  So in a ‘relative’ way, this post is still on time. A brief summary of the celebration events covered herein – seventh anniversary for the blog, 11,300th song posted, and the completion of the planned ‘Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs’ series. Read on.]

[Note of Apology 2: With due apologies to Atul ji, for having taken some liberties in narrating certain aspects of his household.  I am very sure the permission towards these liberties are/will be granted, even though the same has not yet been formally requested ;) ]

Einstein has said, and he must have been quoted on this many million times by now, that ‘time is relative’. There are a variety of different explanations and discourses on this single statement, depending on the perspective or the branch of science or maths, or for that matter, any other subject, that one is considering. There is a very interesting anecdote connected with this statement. Once a newspaper reporter asked Einstein to explain in simple terms, what is the meaning of the phrase ‘time is relative’.  And Einstein, without going into any mathematical or philosophical explanations, gave the following response.  He said – consider the situation when someone is holding your feet to the fire.  In such a circumstance, a passage of even 5 seconds would seem as if an hour has passed. Then again, think of a situation, when you are sitting and talking ‘sweet nothings’ with your beloved.  Then, after an hour has passed, it would seem to you as if just maybe five minutes have gone by.  That is what makes time relative. :)

aao aao
laal paan ki begum
do ka chaar banaayenga, chaar ka aath banaayengaa

As promised, here is a very unique sales pitch song.  And very entertaining too, very fast paced – as fast paced as the real life protagonists who run these roadside trick business.  Yes, quick gambling – very quick, very dirty.  An innocent participant will always part with his money.

दुनिया के बाज़ार में सब कुछ बिकता है, भगवान भी ।
(In this marketplace of the world, everything sells, even God.)

Here we have a small child who is selling God.  Well, not exactly.  He is selling small clay figurines of various Hindu Gods. This scenario is not unique to our country or this religion.  In every society across the globe, wherever there is a worship of a personal God with a form, one can witness such vendors who sell the prevalent and the accepted images of the Almighty.  Even in religions and faiths where the worship is of a formless God, and it is not possible to create images of Him, we have an abstract representation in form of words and scripts that replace the image. The concept and this need of the human mind to relate to a God like entity is and has been a powerful driving force for people across the ages and across the continents. Whatever may be the belief system, one will always find symbols or tokens or images or words, available to be purchased, for a price, at centers of worship and pilgrimage.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 7
—————————————————–

I remember such sellers from my travels in childhood.  It was a time when intercity travel of half a day or less would be a journey by bus, and a longer journey would be by train.  Both my maternal and paternal families are spread out over the Punjab and Himachal areas north of Delhi – Chandigarh, Simla, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar.  All these cities being less than a day’s journey, our travels were generally by the intercity state transport buses. Any other travels, like visiting other metropolitan cities which are all south of Delhi, would generally be by train.  During my school years, travel to visit family was quite a regular affair, once or twice a year during vacation breaks.  Other travels, to places like Bombay, Calcutta, Madras and Bangalore were less frequent.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 6

Aha, a very fragrant addition to this series.  We now have a song that is sung by the seller of ‘itra’, or ‘attar’ or Indian fragrant oils.

The word ‘attar’ ‘itr’ brings to mind the sensations of exotic perfumes, that is a world and a vocabulary all by itself.  It also brings with itself, the long list of glamorous and mysterious names such as Zaafraan, Shamaama, Majmuha, Motia, Raajgir, Chameli, Chandan (or Sandal), Firdaus, Nargis, Mushq-Amber, Gulab, Kesar (Saffron), Khas, Kasturi and many more.  These fragrant oils from India, are prepared from natural plant sources viz. flower petals, leaves, wood and plant resins.  (Except for ‘Kasturi’ (Musk), which is derived from animal origin viz. the musk deers.  Pure and authentic ‘Kasturi’ is a very rare thing to locate these days.  A sure test of its authenticity is that if you bring just a few grains of pure Kasturi near your nostrils, you will have a nosebleed, such is the power of this aroma.)

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 5
—————————————————–

It should be an interesting exercise – to identify and list out all the sales pitch songs, and then check which actors have performed them on screen. My intuition is that the exercise will indicate that most sales pitch songs, sung by male voices, have been performed on screen by either Johnny Walker or Mehmood.
