Ah, coming back to this series after a long gap, a very long gap indeed.  The last episode of this – “Hum Ne Chakkar Kha Kar Dekha”  was posted last year on 23rd June.  And I am returning to it now, after a gap of more than 10 months.  Before I get to the song itself, let me talk about this gap in the proceedings of this series.

We have discussed more than 11000 songs by now. I had not thought even in my wildest of dreams that we will one day arrive at such a figure. My view was that we will have about 2500 songs in the blog and then we will not songs left to be discussed. :)

aaye bahaar ban ke
lubhaa kar chale gaye. . .

These lines would apply to so many artists, especially those whose careers in the industry have been short lived, or curtailed for various reasons.  But whatever is the measure of the duration of their work in the industry, it is their creations that continue to delight us, and keeps the memories alive. Even if it is one song.  And the fun part is the process of discovery that continues.  Some of these lesser known artists ended up working for lesser known banners and films.  Their music would only sometimes make it to the mainstream and popular cinema.  Most of the time they created songs for movies that remained unknown and obscure.  Today, when we dig up such unheard gems, that first encounter is such a charm and a pleasure.

Gopal Bahadur Singh is one such songwriter, whose work mostly remained confined to religious an stunt action films in the 1950s and 60s.  We are more familiar with his pen name – Gopal Singh Nepali or GS Nepali, the poet who gave us the timeless bhajan – “Darshan Do Ghanshyam Nath Mori Ankhiyaan Pyaasi Re” in the film ‘Narsi Bhagat’ (1957).

Remembering GS Nepali on the anniversary of his passing away today (17th April).

Missing Gems from the Golden 50s….song No. 3
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from a film of 1954-Pehli Jhalak.

The year 1954 was a mixed treat for the film industry. The trend of movies on Detective or crime themes began this year,starting with Aar paar and Taxi Driver. Filmistan was the most successful production house with two superhit films having popular music from composer Hemant kumar. Naagin and Jaagriti were the films. Bimal Roy made three films- Naukari,Biraj bahu and Baap Beti ( based on Guy De Maupassant’s Simon’s Papa). H S Rawail made Mastana based on Chaplin’s The Kid.
