Before today, I had only heard the name.  Poring through the lists of artists, one comes across so many names, and so many times, one just skips over and goes ahead.

Today, I heard his voice for the first time. And simply fell in love with it. It started with this song, and then in search of this voice, I went over the online resources, and got a chance to hear more of his songs, most of them in chaste Punjabi.  And I am thinking, what misfortune that I never got introduced to this voice earlier.

Deedaar Singh Pardesi, born in Pattar Kalaan near Jalandhar in Punjab, spent a good part of his growing and youth years in East Africa, and then migrated to UK in 1975.  An untrained artist, whose only inspiration was his own diligence and intent.  And his rewards – the blessings of the masters, a treasure that can be measured neither in money, nor in fame.  One occasion was that Rafi Sb was visiting East Africa.  At a musical program hosted in his honor, the young Deedaar Singh got a destined realization of a dream – to sing in the presence of the artist who was, and is, his lifelong idol.  They had never met before this incident.  Deedaar Singh rendered the iconic “Chaudhvin Ka Chaand Ho Yaa Aaftaab Ho” (from ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chand’,1960).  When the song came to an end, Rafi Sb, who was sitting in the front rows, got up and came on stage – and took the young singer in his arms.  “You have a gift of Allaah”, these were the words with which Rafi Sb blessed him.

On another occasion, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and Pt Ravi Shankar were touring East Africa.  By this time, the singing prowess of this young man was known beyond the borders of Kenya.  When he met them, they requested to listen to his rendition of ‘Heer’ by Waaris Shah.  (‘Heer’ is a famous creation of the Punjabi sufi poet Waarish Shah, from the 18th century.  The verses and the melody of this creation has become an art form, a genre all by itself).  The singing so move Ustad Sb that he took off the diamond ring from his finger and gave it to the singer.  Then he requested to hear more.  Deedaar Singh continued singing more Punjabi folk songs.  This time, Ustad Sb took off the gold buttons in his shirt and gave it to him.  And requested the singer to continue singing.  Then he said, that he does not have any more befitting rewards for the singing.  The singer touched the master’s feet and requested for blessings, as his only reward.  He returned the gold buttons, but Ustad Sb insisted he keep the ring – a valued keepsake that Deedaar Singh wears on his finger till today.

With all this attention, it was only natural that he was invited to come to Bombay.  The above mentioned visitors, and then more people from the industry, when he came to Bombay on a visit, all insisted that Deedaar Singh should move to Bombay.  During his visit, he met with Sahir Ludhianvi Sb, Mukesh, Chitragupt, and many other stalwarts of the industry.  There was a wave once in Bombay, about the voice of Rafi from East Africa.  But maybe it was not his destiny to be.  At that time, he was a school teacher in Kenya, with two children, a son and a daughter.  He was in teacher training, and had taken a few week’s leave to be in India.  Despite all the possibilities, he returned.  I believe that the industry is poorer for this loss.

I reached this song, as I was searching for a song to post for music director Chitragupt.  As I reviewed the Geet Kosh list, I saw this name in the list of singers.  The film being of relatively recent vintage i.e. 1978, I could easily locate the song on YouTube.  I played it, and I was floored.  I spent the next couple of hours searching online for his other renditions and more information about him.  More of his other singing is in Punjabi, but goodness, what a connect.  His voice is as if it is trying to reach inside you and to give you a message of memories.  I am simply not able to hear enough of him today.

(Note: The website maintained by the singer himself can be reached here. Also, an interview with Deedaar Singh ji that was aired on the Indian TV channel in Cananda, in 2007, can be accessed here.)

A little info about the film and the song.  This production of this film was started in 1970, but it took eight long years before it was eventually released.  It seems that it had censorship issues.  When the film was started, its name was ‘Anjaan Raahen’.  The lead artists in the film are Biswajeet and Rekha.  Vinod Khanna has a supporting role.  As per the trivia available online, by the time this film was ready for release, Vinod Khanna, a lesser known entity in 1970, was now a more famous artist.  The producers then changed the name of the film to ‘Do Shikaari’, and promoted it as a two-hero film, even though the role of one of them was only a supporting role.

The storyline of this film is based loosely on the famous African adventure story – ‘King Solomon’s Mines’.  The film is directed by Kuljeet Pal for Faleymingo Films.  The main cast of actors includes Amjad Khan, Joginder, besides the artists named above.  The seven songs in the film are from the pen of three poets, Raahi Masoom Raza, Ashq Jalandhari and Jaan Nisar Akhtar.  This song is written by Jaan Nisar Akhtar.  The music is by Chitragupt.

And the singing voice – Deedaar Singh Pardesi, fascinating.  Listen and enjoy to this poignant voice that makes a debut on this blog today.

Song – Zindagi Ae Zindagi, Hum Se Mat Kar Dillagi (Do Shikaari) (1978) Singer – Deedar Singh Pardesi, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi
husn ki mehfil mein hum kyon
ban gaye hain ajnabi
zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi
husn ki mehfil mein hum kyon
ban gaye hain ajnabi
zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi

naachti hain husn ki parchaainyaan
naachti hain husn ki parchaainyaan
le rahi hai aarzoon angdaaiaan
mere hisse mein kyon hain tanhaaiyaan
sooni sooni kyon mere dil ki gali
zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi

jagmagaati jaagti jungle ki raat
jagmagaati jaagti jungle ki raat
gungunaati naachti aanchal ki raat
dil mein utri hai mere hulchul ki raat
jaise mehfil mein kisi ki hai kamee
zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi

phool se chehre ye baahon ke chaman
phool se chehre ye baahon ke chaman
jhoomte hain lehlahaalte se badan
bas hamin bhoolen hain jeene ka chalan
bas hameen se kyon hai teri dushmani

zindagi ae zindagi
hum se mat kar dillagi
husn ki mehfil mein hum kyon
ban gaye hain ajnabi
zindagi ae zindagi

ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी
हुस्न की महफिल में हम क्यों
बन गए हैं अजनबी
ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी
हुस्न की महफिल में हम क्यों
बन गए हैं अजनबी
ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी

नाचती हैं हुस्न की परछाईंयान
नाचती हैं हुस्न की परछाईंयान
ले रही है आरज़ू अंगड़ाइयाँ
मेरे हिस्से में हैं क्यों तन्हाइयाँ
सूनी सूनी क्यों मेरे दिल की गली
ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी

जगमगाती जागती जंगल की रात
जगमगाती जागती जंगल की रात
गुनगुनाती नाचती आँचल की रात
दिल में उतरी है मेरे जंगल की रात
जैसे महफिल में किसी की है कमी
ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी

फूल से चेहरे ये बाहों के चमन
फूल से चेहरे ये बाहों के चमन
झूमते हैं लहलहाते से बदन
बस हमीं भूले हैं जीने का चलन
बस हमीं से क्यों है तेरी दुश्मनी

ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी
हम से मत कर दिल्लगी
हुस्न की महफिल में हम क्यों
बन गए हैं अजनबी
ज़िंदगी ए ज़िंदगी

Raja, one of the regulars of this blog needs no introduction. An enthusiastic blogger, who recently organised a get together of the regulars of this blog at his residence in Bangalore is a great fan of public tarnsport and he misses no opportunity on availing public transport. He fondly remembers his stay in New Delhi three decades ago when there used to be double decker buses in Delhi. Raja loved to ride on the upper deck and would love the feeling of being on top of the world.

(1978 – Duet)

And with this duet, another film from 1978 makes a debut on the blog. The film is ‘Damaad’ directed by Raja Rakshit. This song I would not categorize as obscure. It was heard relatively more often on the radio, and continues to be alive in memory. And what a gem of a song this one also is.

The pen whose first creations mesmerized everyone with the magic of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gayaa” and “Yaad Karoge Yaad Karoge Ik Din Humko Yaad Karoge”. A dream debut that most artists just think about. He was introduced to Shashadhar Mukherjee, then still with Filmistan, and got the assignment to write for the 1947 film ‘Do Bhai’. Sachin Da took the words and wove a musical magic around them, and gave them to the voice of Geeta Rai (later Geeta Dutt). It need not even be mentioned that the rest is history.

Remembering Raja Mehdi Ali Khan on the anniversary of his passing away (on 29th July). And we couple the remembrance with a celebration – reaching the 200 songs milestone on our blog.
