It occurs to me today that. . we are today reaching that point in time when this world has been bereft of Rafi Sb’s physical presence now, for almost that duration of time that this world was blessed and more complete with his presence as a singer known to the listeners. For an active career that lasted about three and a half decades, it is now about the same amount of time that he has not been with us. And his legacy grows stronger.

Remembering Rafi Sb on the anniversary of his passing away today (31st July).

Starting with mid 1940s, the formlessness of his voice provided the substance and the life breath to many generations of artists and actors till the fateful day in 1980 when he passed from this world, quiet unexpectedly and very much in the prime of his art. Barely fifty five years of age, it was not be that he would spend more time on this earth with us. A duration of life in which he bequeathed approximately five thousand gems of his voice that are a treasure that is peerless in ways more than one.

Rafi Sb is so well known for his art. But in the industry, and in society, he is equally well known for his heart. And probably more so. A person for whom human values were paramount, a person whose kindness and empathy is now a legend. And not just in his line of work – there are so many people, especially music directors of the lower rungs in the industry, who narrate incidents wherein Rafi Sb recorded songs for their music, free or for very very nominal amounts. It is true for his life, across all spheres of interaction. This day, 34 years ago, it was about 9 am when he felt uneasiness and slight pain in his chest. It was decided to take him to the hospital. His children have stated – one of the last things he communicated to his wife was, please make sure that no one ever leaves empty handed from the door of the Rafi household. A short communication that summarizes the life and personality of this great artist and even a greater human being.

In our belief system, it is said that the sound is forever. It never dies; just dissipates into the wider space and exists. The voice of Rafi Sb is a beacon that will shine for generations to come. My intuition is, as the waves rise and they fall, as the seasons change and cycle back, the music from the golden era of Hindi films will regain its old glory and new popularity.

It has to. Gold never goes out of fashion.

In memory, I present today a very lovely and endearing non film song sung by Rafi Sb. As I tried to check for the details of this song, the only one place I found some details is the giant excel file that has been compiled by Muveen Bhai. As per this source, this song is both written and composed by Shyam Sharma, a name I am not too familiar with. I checked our blog and find his name mentioned as the music director for another NFS song by Suman Kalyanpur – “Nand Nandan Bilmaai, Badraa Ne Gheri Maai Maai Ri” (http://atulsongaday.me/2013/01/28/nand-nandan-bilmaai/).

Although it does not contain any direct references, this song is also in the Radha-Krsna tradition. It is the time after He has left for Mathura, and Radha ji is waiting and pining, for he has promised that he will be back in ‘two days’. The words are exquisite;

vyaakul jiyaraa, jaise diyaraa

my restless, impatient heart
is like the burning lamp

nainon ke panghat par palchhin
ansuwan haar piroti birhan

at the wellspring of these eyes
sitting and waiting in sadness
stringing garlands
from the pearls of my tears

As I listened again today, to this wonderful memory of radio days, for the first time the meaning of the phrase ‘ansuwan haar’ literally ‘a garland of tears’, struck me like lightning. As she waits, her eyes are flowing so much that the neck and chest are all moist with tears. And that is where a garland rests, in the neck and on the chest. I am so taken in by the analogy. I had heard this in many other songs also earlier, but never caught on to this significant connect.

A lovely song, that is so lovingly rendered by Rafi Sb. A song that continues to play softly in the mind even after it is over. We know that the travelers of hereafter do never return. But still, “. . .teri baat nihaaren”.

Today is the 31st of July(2014).

For many Hindi film music lovers, this date makes an immediate connect in their brain. To one of the most beloved persons to have ever been part of the Hindi film industry.

Yes, I am talking about Mohammad Rafi (or Rafisaab, as he is often respectfully referred to).

Today is the death anniversary of Rafisaab.

34 years ago, in 1980, a day that I remember vividly as if it were yesterday, Rafisaab left our midst.

Only in a physical sense, of course. In every other sense, he is still very much here with his fans, connecting with them through his voice.

And there are legions of his fans. All over the world.

Like me. One of the many millions.

I’ve written about Rafisaab many times on this blog. About how I grew up in a Kishore Kumar era and how I first realized the quality of Rafisaab’s voice. From the time realization hit me, there was no going back. I was hooked for life.

I do not want to repeat all of it again. So I’ll keep it brief.

Like most children growing up in the early 70s, I was a huge Kishore Kumar fan in my childhood. He ruled at that time – and was constantly on radio with one hit or the other. For a child growing up, it was therefore only natural that he would live and breathe Kishore, as I did.

Then one day, I happened to hear a certain voice on radio. The song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

And suddenly something happened within me. As it started with “bhagwaan…bhagwaan” , it took complete control of me. As it went on, I was transfixed. By the voice, the variations, the depth of emotion.

From that moment onwards, I became a Rafisaab fan for life.

(For the record, I am still a huge Kishore fan. And a Talat fan. And a Hemantda fan. And a Manna Dey fan. And I love many Mukesh numbers. I have never believed in the narrow thinking that if you are a Rafisaab fan, you cannot appreciate Kishore. Or the other way round. Fortunately the world of music is far more embracing and open-minded).

Back to Rafisaab. After that realization, I wanted to hear that song again. But those were pre-internet days and, where I lived, we had limited access to cassettes. Radio was my source of music, other than watching films of course.

But even if I didn’t get to hear this particular song that often, I got to hear more of Rafisaab. I heard “suhani raat dhal chuki”, “maine rakha hai mohabbat”, “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, “caravan guzar gaya”, “sau baar janam lenge”, “madhuban mein Radhika”, “hum bekhudi mein” and many more songs on radio. And everytime, I fell in love with the voice and the song.

There were the duets too. “Jeevan mein piya tera saath rahe”, “laagi chhoote na”, “tujhe jeevan ki dor se baandh liya hai”, “tum hi tum ho mere jeevan mein” and many more.

The more I listened to Rafisaab’s voice, the more I fell in love with it.

Come to think of it, we have been gifted to have such variety of voices available to us.

From Kishore’s baritone voice to Mukesh’s soulful voice to Talat’s silken voice, each one has its place in the pantheon of Hindi film music.

Looking for an appropriate adjective for Rafisaab’s voice, I can only think of “divine”. Yes, on one level, it is not very descriptive – but in another sense, it covers it all.

There is a lot of information about Rafisaab available online. I will therefore steer clear of repeating what’s already there. I will just mention one thing – Rafisaab is supposed to have been a very good human being too. And in my book, that places him on a very special level. It is one thing to be exceptionally good in your profession. It is another to be an exceptionally good human being. There are very few who can claim to be exceptional in both of these.

So, on this death anniversary, we remember not just an exceptional singer but an exceptional human being. Rafisaab will always be in our hearts for as long as we live.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song from the film Bewaqoof (1960). I remember seeing this film a few years ago – but except for a very long aeroplane sequence in the end featuring IS Johar, I don’t remember very much about it. I think it is full of antics of Kishore Kumar and IS Johar.

The song is “hum to hain tum par dil se fida”. Written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by SD Burman. It is picturised on IS Johar and an actress I am not able to identify. I am sure one of our knowledgeable readers will be able to enlighten us about her identity.

It is a light song, sung by Rafi saab in a “controlled” voice. I find it is a pleasant song to listen to. Hope you like it too.


Song-Ham to hain tum per dil se fida(Bewaqoof)(1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

Hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

khaadim hum ulfat ke hain
aap ke hain deewaane
phir hum se
kaho kis liye
jhuki aankh lage sharmaane
khaadim hum ulfat ke hain
aap ke hain deewaane
phir hum se
kaho kis liye
jhuki aankh lage sharmaane
aaha thhodi
to keeje
khayaal hamaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

jis din se
toone dil mera
loot liya hanste mein
usi din se
tera dilwaala
gaya baithh tere raste mein
jis din se
toone dil mera
loot liya hanste mein
usi din se
tera dilwaala
gaya baithh tere raste mein
zara mudke
to dekho
kisi ne pukaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

sach maano
ye galat nahin
hum hain tumhaare bas mein
arrey jitni
hain adaayen teri
kha sakta hoon utni kasmen
sach maano
ye galat nahin
hum hain tumhaare bas mein
arrey jitni
hain adaayen teri
kha sakta hoon utni kasmen
aji vallah
nahin hai
jawaab hamaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

One can say, in some ways, it was a letdown. I mean my first meeting in person with Khyati Ben. We had been in email touch prior to that. I was in US, and had made plans to go down to Los Angeles and meet her. For identification purposes, she had sent me her photograph – a most dazzling blonde, with sharp features and attractive eyes, carrying a red rose. As per suggestions from Raja ji (who was also party to the email thread), I had been instructed to wear a trench coat, a felt hat, dark glasses and sporting a fake beard. And yes, also to carry a red rose. That would have been the identification to each other. Then, we had code words also defined for a more certain identification. On seeing the red rose in her hands, I was supposed to approach her and ask the question –“Aasmaan mein kitne sitaare hain?”. And she was supposed to reply with “hoshiyaar, khatre ke har taraf se ishaare hain”. That was how the introduction was planned.

The 1960 film ‘Chhabeeli’ is not well remembered or talked about much. It was planned as the launch vehicle for Tanuja, by her mother Shobhna Samarth. Whatever else may have been the performance and success factors of the film otherwise, there is one aspect that is unique and significant about this film. Which also makes one wonder about the peculiarities of the cinema world, and its stereotyping. The film has a very delightfully mesmerizing song – “Ae Mere Hamsafar, Rok Apni Nazar” , which is sung by Nutan herself under the music direction of Snehal Bhatkar. This song, along with another equally mesmerizing duet of Nutan and Hemant Kumar – “Lehron Pe Lehar, Ulfat Hai Jawaan” , make this film and its music worth remembering. Both the music director and the lyricist, a gentleman by the name S Ratan, have excelled in this creating these two songs. And the rendering of these songs by Nutan – ah, that is just a class by itself.

darr laagey duniya se balmaa ho

In the matters of heart, when the blossoming emotions of love come to a head, then there comes a day when this precious secret of the lovers comes to be known. Sometimes it is known within a close circle, and sometimes it comes to the lips of all and sundry. A matter that was securely hidden in the two hearts now forms the grist for gossip mills. And thus are born the tales of love.

One of my pet grouses against Hindi movies is that they do not lay stress on working for a living. Hindi movies show people either romancing their beloved or singing sad songs when separated by the beloved. And those who do not indulge in such activities are shown remonstrating with the almighty for their misfortune. Hindi movie characters are rarely shown working for their living.
