Today (31 july 2015) is the last day of the week as well as the month. But that is not how this date is remembered by music lovers. Most music lovers, whether casual music lovers or serious ones know this date like the back of their hands. It was on this day in 1980 that Rafi passed away. He was just 56 years of age at that time and his stars were on the ascendancy again when fate willed otherwise on that day 35 years ago.

Lots and lots of things have been discussed about Rafi the gifted singer and Rafi the humble individual. He is one person who gets remembered by music lovers almost every day of the year. We in this blog have been discussing one Rafi song daily on an average right from the time this blog was started over seven years ago. The very first post in this blog on 19 july 2008 discussed a Rafi song ! The 100th and 200th post of this blog discussed Rafi songs as did the 4000th, 7000th and 9000th posts of this blog. In all, this blog has so far covered 2430 Rafi songs and we are around the halfway mark as far as discussing all Rafi songs are concerned. Hopefully we will reach a stage when we will have discussed all avaailable Rafi songs in the blog. Even today, this blog is perhaps the biggest online collection of Rafi songs in one place.

Lots of music lovers, groups, forums, tv channels etc discuss Rafi songs on this occasion. Most media discuss well known songs that most people are already familiar and they keep getting discussed many times throughout the year during various music related occasions. We in this blog do not repeat a song that has been discussed in the past. So every new discussion in this blog is a song that have not been covered before. So there are no short cuts, and no recycling of the same usual songs for us in the blog. Most Rafi songs that we will discuss today are songs that are rather less heard and known among music lovers. Less heard they may be, but they are all gems.

Here is a song from “Kangan”(1959) on this occasion. This song is sung by Rafi. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

HFGK has this remark for this song-“it appears that this song was later on deleted from the movie. Going by the video of this song, it is seen that the song was very much there in the movie. We can see from the picturisation that the song is picturised as a background song as Nirupa Roy is shown wandering outdoors in bad weather conditions.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

With this song, the eighth song from this movie to appear in the blog, “Kangan”(1959) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Aandhiyaan gham ki chalti hain chalne bhi de (Kangan)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

zindagi jisne tujhe di hai ae
mitaayega wohi ee
ye diya jisne jalaaya hai
bujhaayega wohi

andhiyaan gham ki chalti hain chalne bhi de
jal sake jab talak shamma jalne bhi de
andhiyan gham ki

degi khushiyon ki barkha ye kaali ghata
apne haathon na apna diya tu bujha
degi khushiyon ki barkha ye kaali ghata
apne haatho na apna diya tu bujha
sabr kar ye ghadi gham ki talne bhi de
jal sake jab talak shamma jalne bhi de
aandhiyaan gham ki

dhoop mein chhaanv hai chaanv mein dhoop hai
har niraasha mein asha ka ik roop hai
dhoop mein chhaanv hai chaanv mein dhoop hai
har niraasha mein asha ka ik roop hai
dard palta hai dil mein to palne bhi de
jal sake jab talak shamma jalne bhi de
aandhiyaan gham ki

zindagi de rahi hai tujhe ye sada
o o o o
zindagi de rahi tujhe ye sada
jaanewaale na ja aaaa
meri mehfil mein aaaa
jaanewaale na ja
meri mehfil mein aaa
kaafila zindagi ka yeh chalne bhi de
jal sake jab talak shamma jalne bhi de
aandhiyaan gham ki chalti hain chalne bhi de
jal sake jab talak shamma jalne bhi de
aandhiyaan gham ki

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable – Song No. 10
—————————————————

Remembering Rafi Sahab on his 35th death anniversary :

When I heard this song for the first time a few days ago, I was looking for a Roshan song to post on 14th July for the birth anniversary of the maestro. This song when heard properly, is surely a masterpiece by its creators. I promptly wrote a post and sent it to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, without checking properly if I got the correct ‘Roshan’. As it turned out this song is composed by Roshan Lal Khatri, and not Roshanlal Nagrath, whose birth anniversary it was on 14th July.

Today is the 31st of July 2015.

For lovers of Hindi music, especially that of yesteryear, this date has a special significance and immediate recall.

This is the date, 35 years ago, that Mohammad Rafi (who I always refer to as Rafisaab), left us.

“Mujhko mere baad zamaana dhoonde gaa”.
“Caravaan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahe”.
These were words that proved to be prophetic. In the monsoon of 1980 we had to bid good bye to The Mohd. Rafi.

It has been 35 years since Mohammad Rafi left this world. Unbelievable. Our statistics page says that there are around 4845 songs sung by him in Hindi films. (Wikipedia puts a figure of around 5000). And we are past 2400 (as per the latest updation). So we still have around 2400 songs to go. That means fodder for our blog for another few years I suppose. And all the fans of Rafisaab in our Atuldom can get to work to reach out to all his songs. It is actually not that difficult a job.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 18 # Duet-3 – Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi

On our blog we already have a film titled ‘Ustaad Pedro-1951’. There was a film titled as only ‘Pedro-1960’ which is yet to make a debut on the blog.

Today we have a song from the film ‘Ustaad Pedro’ which came in 1971. This film was passed by the censor board on 28.09.1971. It had Sheikh Mukhtar, Meena Rai, Jeewan, Padma Khanna, Asha Nadkarni, Kundan, Raka, Shyam Kumar, Helen, Junior Mehmood, Master Dingoo, Sadik, Hamid, Kaku, Fazlu, Bihari, B.A.Bagi and new face Anil Dutt. It was directed by Chand for ‘Time-Life Films, Bombay’. Music for this film was composed by C.Arjun and lyrics were written by Asad Bhopali.

If we in this blog pride ourselves in the fact that we “dig” (literally and figuratively) old and obscure songs and share our findings, there have been other HFM lovers who have dug out information about lesser known artists from the past and brought them to limelight. Greta (Memsaab) has done a yeoman’s service in helping bring lesser known faces of Hindi movies to limelight. It is because of her amazing researches on lesser known artists that we now remember the names of artists like Nazir Kashmiri, Laxmi Chhaayaa, Bela Bose, Ted Lyons etc. In fact, I became aware of lead artists like Shakila, Shyama etc mainly because of her articles in her blog. This was in addition to her love for artists like Shammi Kapoor, Dara Singh, Ranjeet etc, of course.

When I started collecting cassettes in 1985, I was very crazy about purchasing of cassettes at regular intervals; I was always searching for songs of old films (especially of Rajesh Khanna films at that time).

It was my practice, beginning from 8th standard onwards that I would take up some part time job during my vacations which I would give up as classes would resume. I had taken up a part time job during the vacation period after class 12th as well, but unlike the previous years, I did not go back to my classes this time, rather I continued with this job since I was aware that I was going to fail in my exams.

My list of ‘songs that create nostalgia and brings back memories’ include many songs sung by Rafi Saab, viz. ‘jhoomta saawan dekho aaya’, ‘shikaar karne ko aaye shikaar hoke chale’ etc.

The song under discussion today is one of those songs. When this film was released I was one year old, so I think that I must have watched this film when I must be of 5 or 6 years old.

“Black Cat”(1959) was directed by N A Ansari. The movie had Balraj Sahni, Minu Mumtaz, N A Ansari, Johnny Walker, Mumtaz Begum, Shammi, Hari Shivdasani, Tun Tun etc in it. From the comments of our readers in earlier songs of this movie, it is known that it was a chor police movie where Balraj Sahni is the police and he is in love with Minu Mumtaz. It turns out that Minu Mumtaz’s brother, N A Ansari is the boss of a smuggling gang. His gang is named after his pet- a black cat.
