When Atul ji added this blog on facebook, a small change happened to the blog page too. In the right hand column, there appeared a matrix of 15 tiny portraits, representing some of the newer persons who are following the blog on the facebook. This is a good place to see some old friends and even sometimes new and familiar faces. And yes, occasionally I have espied even celebrity names as I run my mouse over these images.

For some days now, I notice that an image of a sardar ji has been constantly on display in this matrix. A light blue pugree and a fair smile; the beard is all white, so much so it needs a close look to ascertain it is there. (Check it out).

The gentleman is Bakhshish Singh Bakshi and his presence on facebook panel on our blog page tells us that he is a lover and follower of this music, and of this blog. Bakhshish ji is Delhi based, a very passionate and a very knowledgeable, and I must add, a very resourceful lover of music. He is a diehard fan of OP Nayyar and Madan Mohan. And oh, did I miss telling you that he is a very dear friend. Of course because of our mutual passion for hindi film music.

Bakhshish ji and I got connected through Geet Kosh and Harmandir ji. Any celebration that deals with Hindi film songs can never be complete without the presence and discussion about Harmandir Singh ji ‘Hamraaz’. Regulars will immediately recognize this name as the compiler and archivist of the renowned Hindi Film Geet Kosh, which is the premier reference on any and all information related to Hindi films. Everybody who is involved with the Hindi films songs in any way, consider this monumental compilation as the last word in correct information about the songs, artists and films of the Hindi screen.

I have the good fortune to be introduced to him (albeit quite late in his career as an archivist), but I am also very glad that we are now working very closely on a very regular basis, in projects relating to the Geet Kosh. His personal journey on this path is known to all who own this premier reference set. For others who may want to know more, I suggest a visit to his web site here (http://hamraaz.org/).

Harmandir ji has been instrumental in introducing me to so many stalwarts in this field. He has guided me to meet such folks as Nalin ji Shah (Bombay), Harish ji Raghuvanshi (Surat), Dr. Surjit Singh ji (San Diego, USA), Dr. ML Kapur (Virginia, USA), Girdharilal ji Vishkarma (Jodhpur), Pawan Jha (Jaipur), Vijaylaxmi ji Deseram (ex anchor at Radio Ceylon, currently in Virginia, USA) and many more such lovers of Hindi film music who have spent a lifetime in this field. Of course his list of contacts is huge, on account of the Geet Kosh. And I believe I have benefited a lot from him, in getting introduced to so many like minded friends.

Sometimes in late 2011, when Harmandir ji visited Delhi, it was highly opportune that he stayed with me. And that stay brought in a steady stream of friends who would come to see him. It is on one such occasion that I got introduced to Bakhshish Singh ji.

Bakhshish ji is a tall and lanky person, all of six feet, and all of it is the essence of the legendary Punjabi friendliness and affability. He just does not seem to meet any person for the first time. Every person he meets, even if it is the first time, he comes across as being a friend for a long time. And the same happened with me also. The openness and sincerity that he exhibits is sure to turn every interaction into a friend. This openness and friendliness even comes across in his dealings – he is probably the most giving person I have met. He has a huge collection of film songs, and continues to add to it. And you ask him for anything he has, it is in your hands before your sentence is complete. Anything I have, he says, is for sharing and for my friends.

Born in early 1945 in Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), he was all of two and half years when the partition of this land happened. His family moved to India and settled down in Delhi. Bakhshish ji completed his education in architecture, and specialized in industrial architecture, specifically for the pharmaceutics industry. He has spent a long and fruitful time of his career in this field. Couple of years ago, he laid down his tools and opted for retirement. However, his earlier employer continues to call on him for part time contract assignments.

The love for music, he says he inherits it from his father. In a time when records and gramophone players were part of few households, his father had a sizeable collection of film and non film music. It is incidental that two of the luminaries of music direction in Hindi and Punjabi cinema, namely Hansraj Behl and Roshan, are also from the same city of Gujranwala. Roshan was a close neighbor, and both the to-be music directors were very good friends of his father.

The one thing that Bakhshish ji recalls with emotion and nostalgia. When the family moved to Delhi, of course it was not possible to carry everything. Still his father carried two 78 rpm records with him. One from film ‘Anmol Ghadi’, the song – “Udan Khatole Pe Udd Jaaun” and the second one from film ‘Rattan’, the song – “Saawan Ke Baadlo, Unse Ye Jaa Kaho”. With a wistful look in his eyes, he recalls that these two used to be his favorites that he used to sing around the house, even at that age of just 2 years. Later in life, a couple of years before he passed away, his father handed over these two 78 rpm records to Bakhshish ji’s wife, telling her that he had brought them over for Bakhshish ji.

Beyond that, the story of the growing passion for music is a tale of shared interest between the father and the son over the years. Bakhshish ji’s circle grew and with that grew his knowledge and awareness about film music. He now has a veritable knowledge about history of film music. Of course his favorite decade is 1950s. He has friends through his circle who are also passionate fans of old Hindi films and film songs. He tells of people living in small towns and villages of Punjab, basically farming is their occupation. And they have such fantastic collections of 78 rpms and other records that are carried as heirlooms in family. These collections include records that are not available elsewhere yet. He tells of get togethers that last for three to four days, wherein the friend circle will gather at one such friend’s place, and the only thing they do is talk of music and listen to music. This circle extends well into other countries and there is active interaction with folks of Punjabi origin settled in UK, in Canada, in South Africa etc.

A fun thing that he talks about is four movies that he has to see, before he bids a goodbye to this world. These films are ‘Zalzalaa’ (1952), ‘Ustad Pedro’ (1951), ‘Mangu’ (1954) and ‘Mr Lambu’ (1956). He says he has written to Him, that he will refuse to come if called, unless these four films are seen by him. (NOTE: these movies are not available yet, despite all the effort and resourcefulness he has applied to it.)

Bakhshish ji is an ardent follower of this blog. He occasionally puts in a comment, but in conversations with me, he almost always talks something about this blog. So some weeks back, I sent him also a request for a write up. But with usual reasons (“I do not know what to write”), he had been dodging my request. Finally I was able to convince him and he prepared a write up and emailed to me. Maybe the fault is with me that I did not fully clarify how to go about selecting the song. He sent me a write up about Madan Mohan – Lata Mangeshkar team with a specific reference to one song – “Tum Chaand Ke Saath Chale Aao” from the film ‘Aashiana’ (1952), and has given a wonderful description of the beats and rhythms in this song using the ‘matka’ (or the earthen pot). I had to sadly tell him that this will not qualify as the song is already posted. And with a chuckle he responded – ‘so that means I am off the hook now’. I had to tell him maybe yes, because the time left for the target day was very little. But I have emphasized to him that sooner rather than later, he will have to step in as a contributor. (I will check with Atul ji on how to use his current effort, to add to the existing post).

To honor his choice, I present today another gem of a Madan Mohan – Lata song. This song is from the 1954 film ‘Ehsaan’. Produced under the banner of Mohla films, it is directed by Rajendra Sharma. The cast of actors is impressive and includes Munawwar Sultana, Shammi Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor, Kamal Kapoor, KN Singh, Gulab, Chaman Puri, Praveen, Rajan Kapoor, Zarina, Narbada Shanakar, Roopmala and Baby Nazar. The seven songs of this film are written by DN Madhok and Kaif Irfani. This song is from the pen of Kaif Irfani.

It is the month of Saawan already. For the past two days, Delhi has had a good share of the benefaction of rain gods, which was a much needed respite after the scorching heat of the earlier few weeks. Today, there is no rain, but it is cloudy and pleasant. Just the kind of day and the kind of ambience that this song has to be played. Listen to this well paced song with short verses, that have been threaded into an endearing melody by Madan Mohan. A lovely song for a the lovely month of Saawan. And for my dear friend Bakhshish Singh ji.

Listen and enjoy.

Song-Kahe jiya ki umang (Ehsaan)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

kahe jiya ki umang

kahe jiya ki umang
chhaaye naye naye rang

dekhi sheeshe mein parchhaai

kahe jiya ki umang

mere sapnon ke chham

boley zindagi ka saaz

jiyaa paa gaya aa
jiyaa paa gaya aa
kahe jiya ki umang

koi meethhi meethhi aag
uthhi jiya mein jo jaag
koi meethhi meethhi aag
uthi jiya mein jo jaag
gaaun naye naye raag
gaaun naye naye raag
main to jaaun dol dol
koi pyaara pyaara bol
zubaan pe aa gaya aa
zubaan pe aa gaya aa
kahe jiya ki umang
chhaaye naye naye rang
ke saawan aa gaya aa
saawan aa gaya aa
kahe jiya ki umang

कहे जिया की उमंग
छाए नए नए रंग
के सावन आ गया आ
सावन आ गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग
छाए नए नए रंग
के सावन आ गया आ
सावन आ गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग

देखी शीशे में परछाई
मैं झूमी लहराई
देखी शीशे में परछाई
मैं झूमी लहराई
मैं हंसी मुसकाई
मैं हंसी मुसकाई
मैं सहमी घबराई
मेरी लट लहराई
तो बादल छा गया आ
बादल छा गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग

मेरे सपनों की छम
कहे जाग उठे हम
मेरे सपनों की छम
कहे जाग उठे हम
नाचूँ गाउँ हरदम
नाचूँ गाउँ हरदम
बोले ज़िंदगी का साज
कोई नया नया राग
जिया पा गया आ
जिया पा गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग

कोई मीठी मीठी आग
उठी जिया में जो जाग
कोई मीठी मीठी आग
उठी जिया में जो जाग
गाउँ नए नए राग
गाउँ नए नए राग
मैं तो जाऊँ डोल डोल
कोई प्यारा प्यारा बोल
ज़ुबान पे आ गया आ
ज़ुबान पे आ गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग
छाए नए नए रंग
के सावन आ गया आ
सावन आ गया आ
कहे जिया की उमंग

Ava contributes songs on this blog regularly and also is present in the comments section. I met Ava Suri on the blogosphere, at Greta’s or Madhu’s, I can’t remember right now. Then when I started my blog, she started visiting it regularly as well. At this time, I discovered that she herself has three blogs. One is about Hindi movies and songs , the second one is about books, she has read ), and the third, which she doesn’t regularly update, is about her life and events and travels.

“Saanwari Surat Mann Bhai Re Piya” – the timeless melody that brings together Madan Mohan the music director and Lata Mangeshkar the singer, for the first time, in Devendra Goel’s second venture as a producer director. This was the second time that Madan Mohan was wielding the baton, his first offering being the music of “Aankhen” (1950), also produced and directed by Devendra Goel. It is interesting to note that Lata ji did not sing in Madan Mohan’s first film, despite the fact that a couple of years earlier, in 1948, Madan ji had requested Lata ji to make a promise to sing in his debut film, if he becomes a music director. Lata ji did not keep the promise for “Aankhen” the first film, but kept the promise for “Adaa” the second one, and thereafter, kept the promise for all the years and all the films that Madan ji composed for.

Remembering Madan Mohan on his anniversary of birth today, (25th June).
