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.

Before landing in Mumbai, Mukesh had secretly recorded 6 private songs in Delhi in 1940. In Mumbai, his relative, a well-known actor at that time, Motilal, arranged for his stay. Motilal was already impressed with the young man’s voice, when he had heard him sing at his elder sister’s wedding. Motilal even engaged Pandit Jagannath Prasad to train the young singer.

The film career of Mukesh began with the film Nirdosh (1940) in he which he acted opposite Nalini Jaywant. Naturally, he singing also started with this film in which he had one ghazal penned by Neelkanth Tiwari and 2 duets with Nalini Jaywant. The music director of the film was Ashok Ghosh.

From 1940-45, Mukesh experimented himself with a variety of roles, but without much success. In 1945, with Pheli Nazar, he appeared on the center-stage by giving playback for the unforgettable “dil jalta hai tho jalne do” aptly for Motilal himself. In this song, Mukesh heavily copied his idol Saigal. Bets were placed all over the country as to who the actual singer was and to the extent that Saigal himself is said to have commented “but I don’t remember singing this song”. This all-time great song was composed by Anil Biswas who along with Naushad was instrumental in shaping the singing career of Mukesh in his early years.

The phenomenal success of the song once again started a burning desire by Mukesh to follow the footsteps of saigal in becoming an “actor-singer” a disastrous decision which almost cost Mukesh his career. Today, many know Mukesh only as a great singer. Sudhir ji in his “The Voice of Mukesh” series has amply covered many songs of the 40’s. The series also covers with detailed explanations of most of the films in which Mukesh took up other roles. The table below enlists the other roles Mukesh donned before he took up only playback singing seriously.

Year Film Role Remarks
1940 - - Recorded 6 private songs
1941 Nirdosh Actor-Singer With Nalini Jaywant
1942 Adaab Arz Actor With Nalini Jaywant
1942 Dukh-Sukh Actor-Singer With kathak dancer Sitara Devi
1944 Uss-paar Villan With Kusum and has one duet in the film
1949 Rumaal Guest appearance -
1951 Malhar Producer With Roshan as Music Director
1953 Aah Guest appearance Featuring in the song “choti si yeh zindagani” as a tangewala
1953 Mashooqa Actor-Singer With Suraiya
1956 Anuraag Actor, Singer, Music Director and Producer With Usha Kiran

The making of Mashooqa proved to be very ruinous for Mukesh as he had signed a contract that he would not be singing for any other production house or actor. Music directors in particular started avoiding Mukesh and to make matters worse, the release of the film got delayed. Anuraag with manifold roles by Mukesh also boomeranged at the box-office.

It was only with the great support from Shanker Jaikishan and Salil Choudhary for Yahudi and Madhumati respectively, that things started looking brighter for Mukesh from 1958. There was no looking back and the following year in 1959, Mukesh went on to become the first ever male singer to win the filmfare award for Best Playback singer for Anari. He received this award from his fan and president of Egypt Al Nasir.

Mukesh received 4 filmfare awards, 1 National Award in 1974 and 3 Bengal Film Journalists Association Awards apart from others.
Starting from 1940 to 1976, in a career spanning 36 years, Mukesh sang less than a thousand hindi film songs. The figure could reach about 1100 or so if we include all his regional and non-film songs, ghazals etc. Mukesh was one of the few singers whose non film songs were as popular as his filmi songs.

Remembering this great singer on his 38th death anniversary (27th August 1976), I bring to the music lovers a very famous NFS. The lyrics are penned by Indivar and the music is scored by Kishore Desai


Song-Mil na saka dil ko agar pyaar tumhaara (Mukesh NFS)(1970) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kishore Desai

Lyrics

mil naa sakaa dil ko

mil naa sakaa dil ko
agar pyaar tumhaara
aana padega mujhko duniya mein dubaara
mil naa sakaa dil ko

gaal par gulaab ke shabnam hai zindagi
pyaar ke liye to bahut kam hai zindagi
udti hui is umr ko ek teraa sahaara
aana padega mujhko duniya mein dubaara
mil naa sakaa dil ko

apni ye chhoti si mulaaqaat bahut hai
jitni der tera miley saath bahut hai
bas ek jhalak ek nazar ek ishaara
aana padega mujhko duniya mein dubaara
mil naa sakaa dil ko
agar pyaar tumhaara
aana padega mujhko duniyaa mein dubaara
aana padega mujhko duniyaa mein dubaara
aana padega mujhko

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.

VANDE MATARAM does not need any introduction. Its mere utterance thrills every true Indian. It has earned a special place in every true Indian’s heart.This is not an ordinary poem. It has inspired all the Freedom Fighters over last more than 100 years. Great Revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh welcomed the death by singing Vande Mataram.

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.

aaye bhi wo
gaye bhi wo
khatm fasaana ho gayaa

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).

I had listened to most of the audio clips of Begum Akhtar’s ghazals and other semi-classical songs uploaded on YT. She had rendered ghazals of many well known Urdu poets like Ghalib, Mir, Daagh, Momin Khan Momin, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Jigar Moradabadi, Firaq Ghorakhpuri, Behzad Lucknowi etc. In the later part of her singing carrier, she sang ghazals of the then emerging poets like Shamim Jaipuri, Shakeel Badayuni, Kaifi Azmi, Sudarshan Faakir, Amir Qabalbash etc. Jigar Moradabadi was one of her favourite poets. Begum Akhtar started singing his ghazal sometime in the second half of 30s when Jigar was already popular among the mushiara audience because of his captivating style of rendering his poetry. Because of his popularity, he was called ‘people’s poet’.

How do you feel when a family member achieves something spectacular? Atul is my family, not only as a fellow blogger, but also because both of us started our professional career at the same Institute. This was a small, beautiful, self-contained place, tucked away in a town back of beyond, at the foothills of a hill (which was literally called पहाड़ी). This Institute was a British creation in 1927, with exceptional facilities thrown in: indoor swimming pool, indoor badminton court, squash court, tennis courts, football field, table tennis, billiards table, lounge, dark room for photography (the world was not digital then), and a huge golf course just outside the complex. Four years of our most exciting young days in this ambience, the life-style, and the traditions created a strong life-long bond with the Institute, and among the alumni. As I entered a few years earlier, I am especially delighted by the awesome achievement of my younger brother, The Incomparable Atul. As he completes the magical number of 10,000 posts I convey my heartiest congratulations to him and all the regular contributors who have made it possible.
