atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Archive for the ‘“tasweer” song’ Category

Earlier today, Atul informed me that we are now closing in on 1400 songs for Asha Bhosle on the blog and maybe I’d like to do a write-up for her 1400th?

To date, I have never ever refused a request from Atul to do a write-up – and today was no exception. I immediately said “Sure”. For it is not just a pleasure, but also an honour, to do a write-up here on this blog. And if I ever have to say “no, sorry” to Atul, it would only be because of genuine constraints, never because of any other reason.

Thankfully that day hasn’t come yet – and hopefully it will not. Anything I can do to contribute to this blog in any capacity, I’d be happy to do.

Regulars of this blog may have noticed that I have been discussing very few songs these days by the standards of this blog. One main reason for this is that I am travelling these days. I have arrived at New Delhi for two days in this connection.

I apologize to the readers if they feel that I seem to be stuck in the second half of 60s, while I am selecting songs from Usha Khanna’s films. It seems to be true. Hard as I may try, I am not able to extricate myself from the films of the years from 1966 to 1970. And the reason is that I simply keep bumping into one wonderful gem after another, and the music itself compels me to continue writing about this era of Usha ji’s career. From all counts that I can admit so far, the 60s was the most prolific and the also the most tuneful decade for this composer.

The mention the word ‘qawwaali’ to a Hindi film buff, and 95 out of 100, the response will be the humming sounds of ‘Ye Ishq Ishq Hai Ishq Ishq. . .’. As a poetry form, qawwali originated in Persia and traveled to the subcontinent, during the emergence of the Sufi philosophers in the 12th and 13th centuries. In its original form, its intent is to sing the praises of Allaah, the Almighty, Prophet Muhammad, and other saints. The art was exclusively performed at places of religious worship and at dragaahs (mausoleums) of revered saints and teachers. The poetry is implicitly intended to be spiritual in its context, and its central themes are love, devotion and longing (of man for the Divine).
