For music lovers of radio era, wednesday night used to be the most important night of the week. :) It was on wednesday nights that all music lovers would tune to Radio Ceylon (later Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) from 8 P M to 9 P M. Listening to the magical voice of Amin Sayani telling us about the songs in the various “paaydaan” used to be a divine experience. It was not a good idea for visitors to arrive at the households of music lovers at those hours on wednesdays. :)

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

Hullo to all atulwaasis

A few days back our NAHMJI sent a mail on our email chain about a song she was looking for. As is our normal practice she had looked up for it first on our blog (I presume as that is also my method). Then she put out a look out notice for our diggaz to help her and the most unthinkable happened. Our guruji actually put up his hand to say he was sorry he could not help. But one thing is certain in atuldom, someone or other will come up to answer the question. This time it was Sadanandji. Kamathsaab thank you.

Today (5 january 2014) is the 33rd death anniversary of C Ramchandra (12 january 1918-5 january 1982). He was one of the earlier pioneers of HFM and his contributions in enriching and adding variety to it is second to none. He one one the earlier music directors to adopt western music in HFM. And at the same time, he also composed songs based on folk music as well as those based on classical music. And he was a decent singer as well who sang over one hundred songs as a playback singer. And he could deliver under very tight schedules. He composed all the songs of “Aazaad” (1955) in just a few days and that too without compromising on their quality.

Today (19 november 2014) is the birth anniversary of Zeenat Aman (19 november 1951). She was one of the most popular leading ladies of Hindi movies during the 1970s. She, alongwith Parveen Babi, represented the “Westernised” women as opposed to traditional Indian women that actresses like Hema Malini, Rekha etc of that era represented.

An icon that stands the tallest on the horizon of the Hindi film landscape. And a persona whose influence spans more than six decades of the history of this medium – a medium that itself is just over eight decades young now.

Dharam Devdutt Pishorimal Anand – born this day in Shakargarh, district Gurdaspur. The year – is irrelevant. With a persona like Dev Sb, the length of years behind was as meaningless as the number of years ahead of him were meaningful. The zest for life and the energy to be – the age and years did not matter. The only thing that mattered was the young-ness of the mind that simply refused to be afraid of the towering Time that overcomes all. Not that he professed any eternal life. And neither did he survive the scythe of reaper of time. But the time and the years that he lived and breathed, there was always another horizon to reach, always another mountain to scale. And the mantra for life simply was – young-ness of the mind.
