Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations ––43 (Post number 9998)
- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

How do you feel when a family member achieves something spectacular? Atul is my family, not only as a fellow blogger, but also because both of us started our professional career at the same Institute. This was a small, beautiful, self-contained place, tucked away in a town back of beyond, at the foothills of a hill (which was literally called पहाड़ी). This Institute was a British creation in 1927, with exceptional facilities thrown in: indoor swimming pool, indoor badminton court, squash court, tennis courts, football field, table tennis, billiards table, lounge, dark room for photography (the world was not digital then), and a huge golf course just outside the complex. Four years of our most exciting young days in this ambience, the life-style, and the traditions created a strong life-long bond with the Institute, and among the alumni. As I entered a few years earlier, I am especially delighted by the awesome achievement of my younger brother, The Incomparable Atul. As he completes the magical number of 10,000 posts I convey my heartiest congratulations to him and all the regular contributors who have made it possible.

We were more than four years apart at that paradise, and soon after leaving I branched out to a different line where our paths did not cross professionally. Therefore, I did not know Atul except through this blog, until we met, courtesy Sudhir ji, the ASAD stalwart, whom I got to know virtually, first through our blogs, and then personally, as we were in the same city. That meeting was the moment when we made the exciting discovery – just like the emotional climax of many films starting from the days of Kismet (1943) – that I and Atul were closely related.

Though younger to me, Atul is my senior by miles. He started blogging about two years before me. But more importantly, ASAD is the place I turn to for reference. One of the favourite phrases of the government is ‘single-window clearance’. ASAD is one-stop answer to your most-music related queries. As I see it, this site is going to contain, in a foreseeable future, every film (and a good deal of non-film)-songs available online. It is said about the epic Mahabhaarat that यन्न (यत्+न) भारते तन्न भारते [That which is not there in (Maha)bhaarat is not there in Bhaarat]. There would be a time when one can say यन्न अतुले तन्न चित्रपटसंगीते.

I do not remember when and how I first came across ASAD, but I do remember several ‘special’ moments I had with the blog. One was when “O preetam pyare chhor chale gharbaar mujhse door” by Amirbai Karnataki from film ‘Leela’, (1947; C Ramchandra) was posted. I would not have heard this song more than a couple of times, about four decades ago. But this was one song which mesmerized me on the first hearing – on the very first hearing its tune got embedded in my heart, I remembered other details too, such as the film and MD’s name that we normally associate with a song. Then, it seemed to have disappeared from radio and everywhere. So, when it came up on ASAD, it was a deeply nostalgic moment for me. Similar special moment was when Feroza Begum’s NFS “Tum bhulaye na gaye haye bhulaye na gaye” , a song etched in memory for forty years and then apparently lost forever, appeared here.

Not only I, but some readers on my blog too are deeply grateful for such ‘special’ moments through ASAD. For example, some of them had been yearning for some rare songs of Kamal Barot and Suman Kalyanpur for forty years. I passed on the request to Sudhir ji – with little hopes – who like a kind-hearted wizard was able to pull out the songs from his magical hat and post them here.

Mr Sadanand Kamath and Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh are two other stalwarts whom I greatly admire – the former for his facile pen, high-quality research and his selection of non-film ghazals and light-classical songs of the vintage era; the latter for his amazing knowledge, ability to recall and retrieve, and generous nature of sharing unstintingly. I am also fortunate to have met Arunji, the Living Encyclopedia. In a lighter vein, I think of a 1TB hard disk wired in a human brain. When I think of Arunji, I often mix up the title of Hitchcock’s classic as “The Man Who Knew Everything”.

There are many others who are actively building up this blog through their guest articles, contribution of lyrics and participation. I may not be able to mention their names individually, but I do follow them regularly. It is a huge collaborative effort, and unique in its scope. Hats off to the entire team!

How do you describe your relationship with music? Long long ago you had heard some unknown melody coming from a distant source that held you spellbound and brought tears to your eyes, and you didn’t know why. Or you heard a friend sing an unknown song at NCC camp, or a dinner party, that remained with you forever, and you yearned for it but didn’t know where to find it. The romance of restless yearning – that was our relationship with old songs. The Internet has brought everything at the click of a button. I don’t know whether it is an unmixed blessing, because that romance of restless yearning has gone from our lives. But there is something to be said for fulfillment of dreams too, and ASAD does that for countless music lovers across the globe.

The song I have selected for this post exactly reflects that romance. This is a non-film ghazal sung by Talat Mahmood. As the readers are well aware, Talat Mahmood started his music career with a non-film song “Sab din ek samaan nahi tha” (1941), and it was another non-film song, soon after – “Tasweer teri dil mera behlaa na sakegi” (http://atulsongaday.me/2012/05/09/tasweer-teri-dil-mera-behla-na-sakegi/) – that made him a national sensation. My own list of his best would include as many non-film songs as film songs. And among his best which mesmerized me when I first heard it about four decades ago, and has remained one of my greatest favorites, is his rendering of “Hothon se gulfishaan hain wo ankhon se ashqbaar hum”. As per talatmahmood.net, this is written by Faiyyaz Hashmi, and composed by Talat Mahmood himself. Faiyyaz Hashmi is the poet who also wrote “Tasweer teri dil mera. . .”, as well as numerous legendary geets and other NFSs sung by Jagmohan and others.

On a personal note, when my romance with this ghazal started at a very young age, probably I didn’t understand its meaning at all. But, the velvet voice of the Ghazal King, and his voice-modulation and inflexion you don’t normally find in his singing otherwise, overcame my lack of understanding its meaning. I liked it because its tune was out of this world. Today I feel I have a fair grasp of its meaning, which obviously enhances its pleasure. Here is its lyric, followed by my translation, which has been significantly enhanced by Sudhir ji in the course of our discussion (Thank you, Sudhir ji!). I am aware that I might still be missing its nuances. There are experts of Urdu language here, and it would be immensely useful for all if they could explain its meaning if I am off the mark.

Translation (jointly by me and Sudhir ji)
————————————————–

hothon se gulfishaan hain wo, ankhon se ashq-baar hum
saawan se wo hain bekhabar, begana-e-bahaar hum

Her lips smile like petals of flowers,
While my eyes shed tears of sorrow
She is oblivious of the downpour from my eyes,
While the spring of her smiles is distant for me

arsh ki ye bulandiyaan, farsh ki pastiyon se hai
un ka guroor dekh kar ban gaye khaksaar hum

The pompous loftiness of the sky
Is due to the humble lowliness of the ground
Seeing her haughty condescension,
I turned myself into modest, lowly dust

parwana jaa ke jab gira, shola to kaanp kaanp utha
us pe na kuchh asar hua, jispe hue nisaar hum

When the moth plunged into the lamp,
Even the flame trembled with unease
But the one at whose feet I surrendered myself
Remained unmoved and aloof

pee hai kisi ki bazm mein itni ki phir na uth sakey
hosh o hawaas kuchh nahin, kitne hain hoshiyar hum

In the company of a special one
I have drunk myself so senseless
That I am unable even to get up
See my alertness, my good judgment
That I have lost my sanity and discernment


Song-Hothon se gulfishaan hain wo (Talat Mehmood NFS)(1950) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Faiyyaz Hashmi, MD-Kamal Dasgupta

hothon se gulfishaan hain wo
aankhon se ashq-baar hum
saawan se wo hain bekhabar

begaana-e-bahaar hum
begaana-e-bahaar hum

arsh ki ye bulandiyaa..n
aan aan aan
farsh ki pastiyon se hain
un ka guroor dekh kar
un ka guroor dekh kar
ban gaye khaaksaar hum
hothon se gulfishaan hain wo

parwaana jaa ke jab gira
aa aa aa
parwana jaa ke jab gira
aa aa aa
shola to kaanp kaanp uthha
aa aa
us pe na kuchh asar hua
us pe na kuchh asar hua
jispe huye nisaar hum
hothon se gulfishaan hain wo

pee hai kisi ki bazm mein

itni ki phir na uthh sakey
ae ae
hosh o hawaas kuchh nahin
hosh o hawaas kuchh nahin
kitne hain hoshiyaar hum
hothon se gulfishaan hain wo
aankhon se ashq-baar hum
aankhon se ashq-baar hum

आss आsss
आsssss आss आsss

होठों से गुल्फिशां हैं वो
होठों से गुल्फिशां हैं वो
आँखों से अश्क बार हम
सावन से वो हैं बेखबर
सावन से वो हैं बेखबर
बेगाना ए बहार हम
बेगाना ए बहार हम

अर्श की ये बुलन्दीयां
फर्श की पस्तियों से हैं
उनका गुरूर देख कर
उनका गुरूर देख कर
बन गए खाकसार हम
होठों से गुल्फिशां हैं वो

परवाना जा के जब गिरा
परवाना जा के जब गिरा
शोला तो काँप काँप उठा
उसपे न कुछ असर हुआ
उसपे न कुछ असर हुआ
जिसपे हुये निसार हम
होठों से गुल्फिशां हैं वो

पी है किसी की बज़्म में
इतनी कि फिर न उठ सकें
होश ओ हवास कुछ नहीं
होश ओ हवास कुछ नहीं
कितने हैं होशियार हम
होठों से गुल्फिशां हैं वो
आँखों से अश्क बार हम
आँखों से अश्क बार हम

“Sati Narmada” (1950) is a movie few people have heard about. This forgotten movie was directed by Ishwarlal for Abhimanyu Chitra productions. The movie had Jeevan, Sulochana Chatterji, Umakant, Salvi, Babu, Raje etc in it.

Here is a song from this movie which is just as obscure as the movie itself. Vinodini Dixit is the lyricist. Neelkath Tripathi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This must be one of the forgotten gems created by Khemchand Prakash.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song- Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera (Sati Narmada)(1950) Singer-Vinodini Dixit, Lyrics-Neelkanth Tiwari, MD-Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Jag mein koi na mera aa
jag mein koi na mera
Prabhuji mohe
ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

mere bhaag chamak kar phoote
man ke taar jhanak kar toote
mere bhaag chamak kar phoote
man ke taar jhanak kar toote
saare sang sahaare chhoote
saare sang sahaare chhoote
sankat ne hai ghera
Prabhuji mohe
sankat ne hai ghera
Prabhuji mohe
ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

Girija maa ?? dhara ki
Suraj chanda saare saathi
Girija maa ?? dhara ki
Suraj chanda saare saathi
maangoon bhiksha praan priya ki
maangoon bhiksha praan priya ki
bhar de aanchal mera
Prabhu ji more
bhar de aanchal mera
Prabhuji mohe
Ek sahaara tera
Prabhuji mohe ek sahaara tera

meri bujhti jyot jagaa do
o o o o
meri bujhti jyot jagaa do o
khil kar murjhe phool khilaa do o o
khil kar murjhe phool khilaa do
jeewan chandaa ko chamkaa do
o o
kar do door andhera
kar do door andhera
Prabhuji more
kar do door andhera
Prabhuji more
kar do door andhera

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 7)
——————————
The word Non Film Song brings few names to mind immediately, like Jagmohan, Saigal, Kamala Jharia, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullick etc. I could never understand the reason and logic behind most NFS singers hailing from the Eastern part of India. Even Talat Mehmood went to Calcutta and sang all his famous NFS.

The Voice of Mukesh #62
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

Searching for and locating the last few songs in a list always becomes a challenge, and the pace slows down considerably. In the process of completing the posting of all known songs of Mukesh till 1950, getting the last few remaining songs is turning out to be quite an effort. Today, I am uploading and posting this fabulous fun qawwaali from the 1950 film ‘Bijli’, which is sung by Mukesh and Shamshad Begum.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 3)
—————————–

Believe it or not, but there is some kind of an unseen hand of Destiny that shapes Human life. In film industry, one can see very strange cases. Some people gracefully retire, when they are on Top of their careers and some have to retire because there is no work for them. Some people join the industry in a department of their choice,but Destiny changes their life and they end up working and succedding in an entirely different field of activity.

Returning once again to 1950, to capture this absolute riot of an eccentric qawwaali. Very clear that a bunch of young men are having a complete time out and the result of the fun being had is expressed in such outlandish verses that say

us waqt khushi se dil mera
aankhon mein utarne lagta hai
jab kaali surat par wo
makeup lagaa kar nakhraa karte hain

and

ae meri mohabbat ki motor
garij se nikal kar road pe aa

The Voice of Mukesh #58
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

Ah yes, getting back to 1950 and the series of pending Mukesh songs. The film ‘Hanste Aansoo’ has as many as five songs by Mukesh, one being a solo and the remaining 4 are sung in accompaniment of other singers viz. Rajkumari, GM Durrani, Rafi Sb and Shamshad Begum. Of these five songs, four are already posted and today we come to the fifth Mukesh song from this film. And this one is a duet with Lata ji.
