I am presenting a dance song ‘ kya kya kahoon re Kanha’ from PIYA MILAN (1958). I came across this song just a couple of days ago while searching for rare songs of the 40s on Dr. Surjit Singh’s website. Listening to this song was like ‘Song to Tickle your Memory’ as Sudhir ji has called it in one of the series for his articles. I had heard this song on Vividh Bharti in my younger days but had completely forgotten about the existence of this song. Fortunately, the video clip of this song is available which revealed that this was a classical dance song.

Two important birthdays coming together today – 8th September.  One is music director S Mohinder and the second is Asha Bhosle.  These two have created a number of songs together. Some memorable, and others, like this one, need to be rediscovered for their sheer beauty and simplicity of pleasure. During our visit to Bombay last month, Bakshi ji and I had the good fortune to spend a whole afternoon with S Mohinder ji.  A session that lasted almost four hours – it was a wonderful trip down the memory lane, for him, as well as for us.  That meeting itself is a detailed writeup that is waiting in the drafts list.  For this occasion, I am quoting two episodes where S Mohinder ji remembered Asha ji very fondly.

Yesterday, just like that, I googled ‘nine thousand’. Did not expect to find anything really interesting and useful to write about. After all, it is just another number. But really, I was surprised. Wow, never thought I would find such an interesting information description that would be so appropriate for this huge milestone that we have arrived at today.

Today, the 13th of August, is the birthday of one of Hindi cinema’s big stars of the 1950s and 60s, Vyjanthimala.
If one were to go by her recorded year of birth as 1936, today is her 77th birthday. While recording this fact, I could not help observing that two other legends of the same period, Waheeda Rehman and Nutan, are also recorded as 1936 born. Somebody up there must have been in a liberal mood in 1936 to decide to send these three to Planet Earth in the same year!
