A DAY OF JOY- TO REMEMBER FOR EVER !

In a Man’s life, there are occasions of happiness like Graduation, Job, marriage, First child etc. These are the milestones in one’s life and are celebrated with joy shared by the near and dear ones.

Today I too feel like celebrating because ” OUR ” Blog has touched a milestone- THE 10,000th SONG !

My heartiest Congratulations to ATUL ji, who is doing a great job. I feel his must be the only Blog on the entire Internet, which can boast of 10,000 Hindi film and non film songs (from 1932 onwards), with proper Lyrics. This is a place for Nostalgia, for thousands of Music lovers from almost 200 countries of the World.

I feel not only Happy, but also proud that I am a part of the Team which contributes to this Blog. With over 300 articles, over 500 Film stories and more that 500 information Tit bits on almost every topic related to old films/music, I feel like the famous Mythological Squirrel in the Ramayana.

Thank you Atul ji for providing a platform, where the group could showcase their skills in posting songs, lyrics and articles, thereby contributing to the efforts of making this Blog-A Complete Knowledge portal for Hindi film songs.

In 2010, when I learnt operating Computer, while surfing to find sites for free downloading, I bumped into this site. I was impressed with the kind of songs and the style of operating so much that I have stayed here since then. Slowly I started giving my comments on songs and in Sept. 2012,Atul ji encouraged me to write an article post for the Blog. My first post came up here on 1-10-2012.

This Blog has changed my life for the better. I never had a problem of spending time after retirement, but writing and participating on this blog filled me with a new enthusiasm and I became a busy person. At times, I overdo this and then suffer in health. It has always been a pleasure to share knowledge with interested people. When I read that people are liking my writing, I feel contented. The thanks go to Atul ji, undoubtedly.

So, ATUL ji, thank you once again and heartiest Congratulations for achieving this Milestone of 10,000 songs. May God bless you to succeed always in your endeavour.

On this happy occasion, I wish to introduce our readers to a Singer from the yesteryears. He was unique. He was patriotic. He was MASTER VASANT AMRIT of Surat.

Most of our readers will not know who this person is. Our senior readers from Gujarat MAY have heard his name in their younger days. Master Vasant was a singer from Gujarat, who became famous all over Indian subcontinent, just because of ONE song. This song was one of the most popular songs in the pre-independence period. It was banned by the British raj, but it was sung by patriotic people privately.

Master Vasant was born on 2-2-1902, at Jaam Khambaliya, in Gujarat. His father was Amritlal Madan ji. They were Saraswat Bramhins. His father was a Keertankar from ‘Adityaram gharana’. He had learnt under Pt. onkarnath ji. Well versed in Gujarati,Sanskrit and Urdu literature,he was a voracious reader.Amritlal taught young Vasant how to play instruments. he was taught classical music and Hari Keertan.

Young Vasant became the ” Rajgayak ” of Jaamnagar state. He was awarded the title of ‘ Sangeet Ratna’ for his singing. Thousands of people would gather to listen to his singing.

He used to sing in special occasions like marriages etc in the Royal family, and in such cases the guards used to have a tough time to control the surging crowds gathered to see and hear his singing. Maharaja of Bhavnagar too awarded him the title of ‘ Sangeet Bhasker “.

His singing became so famous that his stage shows were arranged from Rangoon to Karachi. In 1936-37,he was specially invited to sing before Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira ji in Rangoon.

Many records of his singing were popular like, ‘Idhar sudama udhar kanhiaya’, ‘mathura mein sahi-Gokul mein sahi ‘, ‘ Phool rahi hai belariya’, ‘Do din ka Mela’ and many more. His most famous and popular song was ” Meri mata ke sar par Taaj rahe”. It was written in 1928 by shri Madhav ji Shukla Moradabadwale. The song became famous and thousands of records were sold everywhere. It became a Patriot’s favourite everywhere. It was sung during the Prabhat pheris too. This information reached the British Government and they decided to ban this song as it contained words like Gandhi ji and Vande Mataram. Orders were issued and the officers reached the Gramophone company and the original Dye Negative of this record was destroyed. Further all records in the markets were confiscated and ” possessing, singing or playing this record ” became a serious crime against the Government. However.the patriots used to play and listen to this song within closed doors.

The ban, declared in 1930 was lifted in or around 1945, with the efforts of Kanhiayalal Munshi ji. But then soon ,in 1947, the country became Independent and the song and the record were soon forgotten.

Due to his singing skills and good looks, he was offered several films, but he acted only in one Bilingual film- ‘ Krishnabhakta Bodana”-1944 in Gujarati and Hindi.The Heroine of this film was Rani Premlata. In the Hindi film he sang 3 songs- 1. Jaan liya pehchan liya 2. Main chor bana Prabhu tera and 3. Saari daaliyon mein meethi ek daali. This was his only connection with the film world.

There was another actor named Vasant, so he always wrote his name as Master Vasant Amrit to avoid confusion. After retirement he lived in Surat with his wife and widowed sick sister. His financial condition was not good. In those days singers did not get Royalty from HMV, they got paid lump sum way once only. He was getting a meagre pension from the Gujarat Government. His health also deteriorated and in 1985, he was paralysed below waist making him a handicap for ever.

Famous writer and winner of five sahitya academy awards, shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji traced him to a society in Surat, in Bungalow no. 3 of a society on Varachha Road. This too needed lot of efforts and contacting many friends for information. When this news was published in local papers, some help poured in. When he actually met Master Vasant and saw his condition,he decided to do something about it. Pandyaji spoke to Gujarat Chief Minister Chimanbhai Patel to grant an award of Rs. 1 lakh to master Vasant. This scheme of finacial assistance to senior artists was already in existence in Gujarat. The CM, after listening to the condition of Master Vasant agreed immediately and gave orders accordingly. But alas ! The crude bureaucracy of the Govt. has its own wishes and speed. Nothing moved and after some time Pandyaji again took up the issue at the officer level. promises given, but no action.

Master Vasant was getting older and nearing his last days. Pandyaji took lot of efforts through the CM again and many related officers. He wanted that before master Vasant dies, he should get the help. In the month of January 1991, master Vasant was admitted in Hospital for the last time. Fortunately, due to Pandyaji’s untiring efforts, Master Vasant finally got his money, with all arrears etc, by a special courier who gave the amount to him personally. Master Vasant was happy and blessed shri Pandya ji from heart. Within next 4 days MASTER VASANT AMRIT OF SURAT died and a legend came to an end, on 19-1-1991.

Shri Rajanikumar Pandya ji has written all this in details and in his inimitable flowing style, in his book ” Aapki Parchhainyan “. When I was reading his description, tears were rolling down my eyes. My mind was filled with disgust towards Government’s apathy in looking after artistes who had made that state Proud. But for the unstinted and selfless efforts of shri Pandya ji,Master Vasant would have never got any help before his death ! My hats off to shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji.

Well,I thought that today’s celebrations call for an equally important song, which was the favourite of patriots before Independence. So,here is the once famous song” Meri maata ke sar par Taj rahe” sung soulfully by MASTER VASANT AMRIT ji.

(My thanks to shri Rajnikumar Pandyaji for his article and other materials which he sent to me,Harish Raghuvanshi ji for information,dates of b & d,and the original song in MP3,and to Atul ji for uploading it on You Tube).

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations ––43 (Post number 9998)
- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

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.

We were more than four years apart at that paradise, and soon after leaving I branched out to a different line where our paths did not cross professionally. Therefore, I did not know Atul except through this blog, until we met, courtesy Sudhir ji, the ASAD stalwart, whom I got to know virtually, first through our blogs, and then personally, as we were in the same city. That meeting was the moment when we made the exciting discovery – just like the emotional climax of many films starting from the days of Kismet (1943) – that I and Atul were closely related.

Though younger to me, Atul is my senior by miles. He started blogging about two years before me. But more importantly, ASAD is the place I turn to for reference. One of the favourite phrases of the government is ‘single-window clearance’. ASAD is one-stop answer to your most-music related queries. As I see it, this site is going to contain, in a foreseeable future, every film (and a good deal of non-film)-songs available online. It is said about the epic Mahabhaarat that यन्न (यत्+न) भारते तन्न भारते [That which is not there in (Maha)bhaarat is not there in Bhaarat]. There would be a time when one can say यन्न अतुले तन्न चित्रपटसंगीते.

I do not remember when and how I first came across ASAD, but I do remember several ‘special’ moments I had with the blog. One was when “O preetam pyare chhor chale gharbaar mujhse door” by Amirbai Karnataki from film ‘Leela’, (1947; C Ramchandra) was posted. I would not have heard this song more than a couple of times, about four decades ago. But this was one song which mesmerized me on the first hearing – on the very first hearing its tune got embedded in my heart, I remembered other details too, such as the film and MD’s name that we normally associate with a song. Then, it seemed to have disappeared from radio and everywhere. So, when it came up on ASAD, it was a deeply nostalgic moment for me. Similar special moment was when Feroza Begum’s NFS “Tum bhulaye na gaye haye bhulaye na gaye” , a song etched in memory for forty years and then apparently lost forever, appeared here.

Not only I, but some readers on my blog too are deeply grateful for such ‘special’ moments through ASAD. For example, some of them had been yearning for some rare songs of Kamal Barot and Suman Kalyanpur for forty years. I passed on the request to Sudhir ji – with little hopes – who like a kind-hearted wizard was able to pull out the songs from his magical hat and post them here.

Mr Sadanand Kamath and Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh are two other stalwarts whom I greatly admire – the former for his facile pen, high-quality research and his selection of non-film ghazals and light-classical songs of the vintage era; the latter for his amazing knowledge, ability to recall and retrieve, and generous nature of sharing unstintingly. I am also fortunate to have met Arunji, the Living Encyclopedia. In a lighter vein, I think of a 1TB hard disk wired in a human brain. When I think of Arunji, I often mix up the title of Hitchcock’s classic as “The Man Who Knew Everything”.

There are many others who are actively building up this blog through their guest articles, contribution of lyrics and participation. I may not be able to mention their names individually, but I do follow them regularly. It is a huge collaborative effort, and unique in its scope. Hats off to the entire team!

How do you describe your relationship with music? Long long ago you had heard some unknown melody coming from a distant source that held you spellbound and brought tears to your eyes, and you didn’t know why. Or you heard a friend sing an unknown song at NCC camp, or a dinner party, that remained with you forever, and you yearned for it but didn’t know where to find it. The romance of restless yearning – that was our relationship with old songs. The Internet has brought everything at the click of a button. I don’t know whether it is an unmixed blessing, because that romance of restless yearning has gone from our lives. But there is something to be said for fulfillment of dreams too, and ASAD does that for countless music lovers across the globe.

The song I have selected for this post exactly reflects that romance. This is a non-film ghazal sung by Talat Mahmood. As the readers are well aware, Talat Mahmood started his music career with a non-film song “Sab din ek samaan nahi tha” (1941), and it was another non-film song, soon after – “Tasweer teri dil mera behlaa na sakegi” (http://atulsongaday.me/2012/05/09/tasweer-teri-dil-mera-behla-na-sakegi/) – that made him a national sensation. My own list of his best would include as many non-film songs as film songs. And among his best which mesmerized me when I first heard it about four decades ago, and has remained one of my greatest favorites, is his rendering of “Hothon se gulfishaan hain wo ankhon se ashqbaar hum”. As per talatmahmood.net, this is written by Faiyyaz Hashmi, and composed by Talat Mahmood himself. Faiyyaz Hashmi is the poet who also wrote “Tasweer teri dil mera. . .”, as well as numerous legendary geets and other NFSs sung by Jagmohan and others.

On a personal note, when my romance with this ghazal started at a very young age, probably I didn’t understand its meaning at all. But, the velvet voice of the Ghazal King, and his voice-modulation and inflexion you don’t normally find in his singing otherwise, overcame my lack of understanding its meaning. I liked it because its tune was out of this world. Today I feel I have a fair grasp of its meaning, which obviously enhances its pleasure. Here is its lyric, followed by my translation, which has been significantly enhanced by Sudhir ji in the course of our discussion (Thank you, Sudhir ji!). I am aware that I might still be missing its nuances. There are experts of Urdu language here, and it would be immensely useful for all if they could explain its meaning if I am off the mark.

Translation (jointly by me and Sudhir ji)
————————————————–

hothon se gulfishaan hain wo, ankhon se ashq-baar hum
saawan se wo hain bekhabar, begana-e-bahaar hum

Her lips smile like petals of flowers,
While my eyes shed tears of sorrow
She is oblivious of the downpour from my eyes,
While the spring of her smiles is distant for me

arsh ki ye bulandiyaan, farsh ki pastiyon se hai
un ka guroor dekh kar ban gaye khaksaar hum

The pompous loftiness of the sky
Is due to the humble lowliness of the ground
Seeing her haughty condescension,
I turned myself into modest, lowly dust

parwana jaa ke jab gira, shola to kaanp kaanp utha
us pe na kuchh asar hua, jispe hue nisaar hum

When the moth plunged into the lamp,
Even the flame trembled with unease
But the one at whose feet I surrendered myself
Remained unmoved and aloof

pee hai kisi ki bazm mein itni ki phir na uth sakey
hosh o hawaas kuchh nahin, kitne hain hoshiyar hum

In the company of a special one
I have drunk myself so senseless
That I am unable even to get up
See my alertness, my good judgment
That I have lost my sanity and discernment


Song-Hothon se gulfishaan hain wo (Talat Mehmood NFS)(1950) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Faiyyaz Hashmi, MD-Kamal Dasgupta

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations –42 (Post number 9997)
- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Folks who are avid browsers of the internet in search of Hindi film songs and related information must be very familiar with another blog ‘Songs Of Yore’ (http://www.songsofyore.com/). Today, I am writing to introduce AK ji, the personality, who is the driving force behind this blog that is famous in the digital world, for its content and references. Last month, on 7th June, his blog ‘SoY’ celebrated its fourth anniversary. On the occasion, the lead post starts with the following paragraph.

I have often said I started blogging स्वान्तः सुखाय. As Songs of Yore completes four years today, I find I have become a little less selfish. Now I do a lot of things that are suggested and driven by the readers. And, you don’t need a preacher to tell you that nothing pleases a person more than knowing that what he does also pleases a lot of other people. So, I have to thank all the readers for making the journey of Songs of Yore so delightful.

This above para summarizes the philosophy and the drive of the person himself. AK ji, as he is known to his blog readers, and to the Atulites also, is a person who is so well meshed with and immersed with this art form. It is a passion that has advanced from being just a love to hear this music, to becoming a cause, for the collection, preservation and sharing. Which led him to set up the ‘SoY’ blog four years ago.

My familiarity with AK ji started sometimes in late 2011, as I came across his blog while searching for some HFM related information. Maybe it was Arun ji who directed me there, but I do not remember clearly. Earlier, I had seen a commenter on our blog with the intriguing name – ‘SongsOfYore’. When I landed on the blog, I came to realize the connection. This started a communication on email, which very quickly led to personally meeting with him. Just prior to our first meeting, I received an email from Arun ji, who mentioned that AK ji was in Bombay and that the two of them had met. The only information I got in Arun ji’s message was that AK ji is one of the senior most bureaucrats with Govt of India. Later when the communication between myself and AK ji came to the point of knowing that we are both residents of Delhi, then the plans came about to meet in person.

It was coincidental and fortuitous that Harmandir ji was also in Delhi when we first met. So it was a wonderful three way meeting that we had. After that AK ji visited me at home, and we sat and discussed about some then current searches and questions that were active on email and in blog comments. I remember there was a very active discussion on the first song of Lata Mangeshkar. That topic initiated a lot of good research and information exchange, and it involved many people.

Then came the opportunity that Atul ji was visiting Delhi. I called up AK ji, and we set up another very interesting three way meeting. After that we have met occasionally. In recent months, AK ji has shifted his residence to Greater Noida, one of the suburb towns of Delhi. So in person meetings have not happened for some time, but is there very active exchange that continues over phone and email. Especially after AK ji came to know that I have the habit to ferret out obscure and long forgotten songs, our communications about trying to acquire such rare pieces of music has been ongoing.

AK ji is an engineer plus an MBA by education. He has a very strong background in science. After meeting him, I find in him a friend who is well read, and has an eager interest in a wide variety of things. The discussions with him are animated, and we generally run out of time, but not out of subject matter. He has spent a career lifetime with the Govt of India. Earlier this year he retired from the senior most level of civil service in the GOI.

His interest in old film music is born out of a romance with the radio and Doordarshsan, and continued to grow into keen enthusiasm and on towards a eager passion. And out of this passion is born his blog, ‘Songs Of Yore’ (http://www.songsofyore.com/). A visit to this blog will introduce the wide variety of topics and themes that AK ji continues to publish as well as moderate, with contributions from other like minded souls. He once shared with me that the essential strength of his blog is its knowledgeable readers and contributors. There is a very active participation and dialogue that continues as a stream on his blog.

For this intro post, I am presenting a rare non film song by the renowned KC Dey, on special request of AK ji himself. I have not been able to locate any additional information about this song. The verses internally identify the author as Ram Das. Apparently it is a bhajan that has been written by a devotee, Ram Das. The YouTube upload identifies KC Dey as the composer of this song.

This is a real beautiful Holi song that is sung by an unnamed ‘gopi’, who tells of her tribulations on the day of Holi, when the mischievous Kanhaiyyaa drenched her with colors when she was on way to get water from Jamuna river. Hearing it in the divine voice of KC Dey, simply adds to the beauty of words and the melody.

Listen and enjoy.

जात रही मैं जमुना जल को

अनूठे ब्रिजराज
ना आवे वा को लाज
आज होरी खेलें कन्हैय्या
चूँदर रंग मोरी डारी रे
आज होरी खेलें कन्हैय्या
चूँदर रंग
हाँ चूँदर रंग मोरी डारी रे
आज होरी खेलें कन्हैय्या
चूँदर रंग मोरी डारी रे
आज होरी खेलें

Sudhir ji, one of the Atulite stalwarts, kindly alerted me in mid-April about the impending big event of Bicenquinquagenary or the 10,000th posting on Atul ji’s Song-a-Day Blog sometime in May or June 2014 … and suggested that like other Atulites, I too should submit a special write-up on the occasion.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 16

This Non-Film Raaga Maala is by Ustad Ahmed Hussain and Ustad Mohammed Hussain. The composition is unique and very complex. The two brothers have incorporated 9 different ragas in each Antara (total 18 ragas in two antaras). Each time they mention a raga, they sing that verse in that particular raga. It is very admirable that the duo has written the lyrics themselves.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 10) Last song of the series
———————————————————-

In the early 40s through the mid 60s, Radio was the only common entertainer for every household. Of course the choice of Gramophone was also there, but only few people could afford to own a gramophone. I remember, our morning used to open with melodious Bhajans from the Radio. Those days’ Mumbai Radio Station’ ( from the beginning, it was called Mumbai Radio station only-not Bombay anytime. For Hindi service it was Bambai) used to start early at 5.30 a.m. It first played Shehnai and then very sweet Bhajans, for an hour or so. That is how Juthika Roy and D.V.Paluskar’s names were etched on the memory card for ever. To listen to their bhajans was a divine experience.

THE JOY OF NFS(Song No. 9)
——————————-

Manna Dey never achieved the kind of popularity that some of his more commercially successful contemporaries (Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh etc) enjoyed, but that in no way is a reflection on Manna Dey’s calibre as a singer. As a singer he had perhaps the widest range of them all. He could sing songs ranging from philosophical to comical with equal felicity. In his case, passage of time has helped enhance his reputation.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 8)
——————————-

Sachin Dev Burman was a titan amongst composers and singers of songs for Indian films and outside of them. Born on October 01 1906 in Comilla, about 100 kilometers from Dhaka Bangladesh, Sachin Dev Burman was a scion of the princely family of Tripura, now a state of India. His noble lineage is reflected in the grace of his musical creations spanning a period of 43 years until his death in Bombay in 1975.

THE JOY OF NFS (Song No. 7)
——————————
The word Non Film Song brings few names to mind immediately, like Jagmohan, Saigal, Kamala Jharia, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullick etc. I could never understand the reason and logic behind most NFS singers hailing from the Eastern part of India. Even Talat Mehmood went to Calcutta and sang all his famous NFS.

THE JOY OF NFS(SONG NO. 6)
——————————————–

City- Bombay
Date- 20th July 1972
Place- Harkissondas Hospital,Bombay

Few people were standing in the corridor . Anxiety, sorrow, helplessness and a little hope was clearly writ large on their faces. They were all quiet. No one was talking to anyone. Their body language gave away their agony and restlessness.
