The 3rd death anniversary of Ghazal King Jagjit Singh was on October 1Oth and the 76th birth day of Urdu poet and lyricist Nida Fazli was on October 12th. For the occasions, I had planned to write a combined post and had selected a song months back to be posted on the Blog in October 1Oth or 12th. But some other activities relating to travels and pre Deewali atmosphere in my house resulted in diversion of my mind and in the process, I completely forgot about writing the article for the occasion. It was only when I saw a post on the occasion of the birthday of Nida Fazli that I got reminded of my pending article. Even though anniversary dates have passed, it is never late for paying tributes.

I have selected a non-filmy ghazal ‘garaj baras pyaasi dharti par phir paani de maulaa’ (1994) written by Nida Fazli. The ghazal was composed and sung by Jagjit Singh. This is a prayer to Almighty as also a ‘wish list’ of the poet written in ghazal format. So it is more like a ‘prayer ghazal’. But behind the prayer, there is a universal message.

Nida Fazli is one of the Modern Urdu poets who started writing ghazals shedding its conventional theme of ‘talking to the beloved’. One can find in most of his ghazals, nazms, Hindi poems, Dohas (couplets) the subject of the broader inter-personal relationships, communal harmony, rural and urban landscapes, realities of day to day life etc. As he often says, he writes what he sees and experiences. He writes poems in a language which the common man finds them easy to understand. Most of his ghazals and nazms have secular touches as well. In the prayer under discussion, he brings in Maula, Meerabai and Saleeb (cross).

The lyrics of the ghazal under discussion are heart touching. Jagjit Singh adds emotions to the ghazal by his voice as well as by his composition. Note how he sings in slow tempo with only soft musical accompaniments to ensure that wordings of the ghazal are not missed by listeners in the maze of orchestration. His ghazal renditions have always been ‘bol pradhan’ (emphasis on words of the poetry). If I say that after the death of Malika e ghazal Begum Akhtar, it was Jagjit Singh, the King of Ghazals who revived the interest in ghazals. He always selected simple ghazals which were easy to understand. With his melodious voice and simple orchestration, he could take the ghazal as a form of singing to the door steps of people at large.

This heart touching prayer is relevant in the midst of disturbing developments in the world especially in the context of middle east and sectarian violence in which there is no choices for living ones to die in ease (jeenewaalon ko marne ki aasaani de maula). This is a simple poem rendered in a simple format as a message to a complicated world of today.


Song-Garaj baras pyaasi dharti par phir paani de maulaa (Jagjit Singh NFS)(1994) Singer-Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Nida Fazli, MD-Jagjit Singh

Lyrics

garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa
chidiyon ko daane
bachchon ko gud-dhaani de maulaa aa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa

do aur do kaa jod hameshaa
chaar kahaan hotaa hai
do aur do kaa jod hameshaa
chaar kahaan hotaa hai
soch samajh waalon ko thhodi
naadaani de maulaa
chidiyon ko daane
bachchon ko gud-dhaani de maulaa aa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa

phir raushan kar zahar kaa pyaalaa
chamkaa nayee saleeben
phir raushan kar zahar kaa pyaalaa
chamkaa nayee saleeben
jhoothon ki duniyaa mein sach ko taabaani de maulaa
chidiyon ko daane
bachchon ko gud-dhaani de maulaa aa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa

phir moorat se baahar aakar chaaron oar bikhar jaa
phir moorat se baahar aakar chaaron oar bikhar jaa
phir mandir ko koi Meera deewaani de maulaa
chidiyon ko daane
bachchon ko gud-dhaani de maulaa aa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa

tere hote koyi kisi ki
jaan kaa dushman kyun ho o
tere hote koyi kisi ki
jaan kaa dushman kyun ho
jeene waalon ko marne ki aasaani de maulaa
chidiyon ko daane
bachchon ko gud-dhaani de maulaa aa
garaj baras pyaasi dharti par
phir paani de maulaa aa
phir paani de maulaa aa
phir paani de maulaa aa

Sandhya Mukherjee – a voice that is comparatively heard less frequently on the Hindi film screen, is a big name in the world of Bangla music and Bangla film music. In fact her association with Hemant Kumar as a duet singer, is almost as legendary as the on screen pair of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen. Majority of the duets of these two actors in Bangla cinema, have been playback sung by these two singers.

Greetings to Sandhya ji on her 73rd birthday (4th october).

In our high school curriculum, we had Hindi Padhya (Poetry) in which, among others, poems of Meerabai, Tulsidas, Kabirdas, Surdas, Raskhan were taught to us. While most of the poems were in the praise of Lord Ram and Krishna, poems of Sant Kabirdas were not addressed to any specific God. I had heard the word ‘nirgun’ from my teacher in regard to the poems of Sant Kabirdas, I did not know the meaning of ‘nirgun’ in wider sense until few years back. Some of Dohas (two liners) have still remained in my memory. One of those which often come to my mind is:

Legendary singer Mukesh was born in Delhi, on July 22, 1923 in a middle class family consisting of 10 children. Mukesh was the sixth of the siblings. The lure of films always appealed to Mukesh and as such he was less interested in studies. After his matriculation in a municipal school he was able to get a job of assistant surveyor in Delhi’s department of public works through his father. However, after just seven months of service, Mukesh ran away to Mumbai to become another KL Saigal whose adherent fan he had been all along. Even in school, Mukesh was known as “junior saigal” and the lunch breaks often involved the young Mukesh rendering his favourite Saigal numbers to his peers amongst whom Roshan Lal would be one on the harmonium.

The early phase of Talkie films was full of 2 types of people.

1. Those who wanted to do something worthwhile in this new field, and

2. Those who saw this field as an opportunity to showcase their skills.

We Indians are known to be inquisitive about the personal lives of others, more so in the semi-urban and rural settings. Historically, this trait may have come from community living in hamlets where there were closer ties with families through interactions. This also helped in keeping abreast with what was happening around them. Inquisitiveness is not confined to India alone. It has also been observed in other developed countries, though to a lesser extent. I have personally experienced it in a couple of European countries.

Aisi kuchh baat hai ki, at the mention of Meena Kumari’s name, come to mind these lines written by DN Madhok (‘Namaste’, 1943). Born as Maahjabeen Bano in 1932, on screen in 1939, leading lady by 1950, won the first ever Filmfare award in 1952 (‘Baiju Baawra’), established tragedienne in 1953 (‘Daaera’), married to Kamaal Amarohi in 1952, separated from him in 1960, divorced in 1964, reunited in 1968, and then gone from this world in 1972. Just 40 years on this earth, and a career of thirty three years, ninety films, four Filmfare awards as best actress, and memorable string of powerful roles that made her a legend at an age and time in life when most of us are still finding our feet.

In 1980, I was in Delhi, fresh out of college, working for a firm that manufactured car parts. I stayed with my Aunt in Delhi, the rest of my family being elsewhere. My cousins were BIG music afficionados. They could sing beautifully and had an excellent taste in music.

I already loved the film music of 50s and 60s, so I was also well grounded in my musical tastes. My cousins helped me break out of my Lata/Asha/Rafi/Kishore mould and develop a taste for singers like Talat, Manna Dey, Begam Akhtar, Kumar Gandharva, Bhimsen Joshi and of course, Jagmohan.

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).
