Sureeli Suman – 06

After posting the ‘thhumri’ ‘Saajan ki Baat Niraali’, here is one more ‘thhumri’ by Suman Kalyanpur under the direction of Khan Saheb Abdul Rehman Khan. The traditional lyrics were modified by Khan Saheb himself. These two thumries were on an Extended Play disk (EP) and was purchased by me 46 years ago in January 1969.

Lat uljhi suljha ja baalam
haathon mein mehandi lagi hai mori

Maathe ki bindiya bikhra gayi mori
Apne haath sajaa jaa baalam

Pag paijhaniya uljha gayi mori
Apne haath lagaa jaa baalam

The above is the original bandish written by saint-poet Chandrasakhi and composed in Raag Bihag.

The first time I heard the name of the film ‘Prarthana’ (1943) was sometime in 2012 when I wrote a short write-up on Jahanara Kajjan, singer-actor of 30s and 40s, for the Blog with her song tumre darshan ka nainaa taras gaye re in Raag Gaud. Since then, the only additional information I could get about this film was that it was a social genre film. The film’s VCD/DVD is not available.

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.
