# Desh ki mitti ki khushboo # 2
———————————–

In one of my earlier posts I had described how my working life took off and how I got a chance to be associated with a ‘New Delhi’ based company. One of the most important considerations that motivated me to join this company was that it gave me the opportunity to get postings in different parts of our ‘great country’ .

At that time the thing uppermost in my mind was that I would get to see Delhi and the other places of our great country. It did happen and I got a chance to visit New Delhi many times thereafter, for official work (as the Head Office of the company was at New Delhi- Nehru Place), and also to travel across different parts of the country and to stay in states like Rajasthan, U.P., Haryana, and further in the state of Gujarat.

All the tourist destinations and other historically important places were the main attraction for me then and that continues to be the case for me even today, because I love to travel, observe the rich historical and cultural heritage of our country, observe people of diverse areas speaking different dialects and following different customs and traditions.

When I was in school, History, Geography and Civics were my favorite subjects (and I always fared well in them :) at all levels)

My first ‘out of Maharashtra’ posting was at the company work site at Kota, Rajasthan; I stayed there for a period of almost eight years (More on this ‘first assignment-Rajasthan, in another post, which has been skipped and may come in future on the blog).

For this today’s post we jump on to my ‘second out of State posting’ which was at Phulpur near Allahabad.

I landed at Phulpur-Allahabad on 15th August 1996 and stayed there till Sep’1998 till the completion of the Project there.

Due to my interest in GK I was aware that this was the constituency of our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

I keep visiting Allahabad-Phulpur for some work after the completion of the project and the last such visit was in 2001 when I visited with my wife and daughters and we took a ‘holy-bath’ there as the ‘Kumbh-Mela’ was held then.

Well, when I reached Phulpur, initially, our staying arrangements were in the village Phulpur, then we shifted to the township near the plant and finally when the project was completed we moved to Jhunsi near Allahabad, from where I used to commute daily for the final closure and winding up activities there.

I remember that our first outing /visit in the city were to the ‘Chowk’ area, the main market place in the city of Allahabad.
Thereafter we visited the ‘triveni-sangam’, took a ‘holy-dip’ there, and visited the nearby temples. After that as and when time permitted and on festive occasions we visited these places again, especially when my parents came there. Then we also paid a visit to Varanasi and Sarnath.

I always consider myself blessed to have got such opportunities to work and travel around different places and staying there, because due to this my parents also got to visit these places which otherwise would not have been possible for them.

For me the ‘triveni sangam’ and taking a holy dip into it was a great experience but simultaneously there were lot of incidents which compel me to think, how we the people of this great land are exploiting the society and also damaging our natural resources by pollution and destroying them. Peoples visiting there from different parts of the country for rituals of their near and dear ones are exploited too.
And while I have some very fond memories of my stay there, there were some bitter incidents too. But, after almost 20 yrs now, when I looked back at them, they seem to be ‘part and parcel’ of life and learning and experience that we get in our life.

During this period my wife and elder daughter stayed with me and kept shifting between Phulpur and Parli Vaijnath where my parents were staying (my second daughter was born during this period in 1997).

So, for the time when I was a forced bachelor and the work was reduced, I and my friends from other companies working there used to visit the ‘Coffee-house’ in the Civil lines area in Allahabad-mostly on holidays, and had snacks and tea/coffee there.

It was during this period that I came to know more about the importance of ‘some particular days’ and taking a ‘holy dip’ on those days in the river ‘Ganga’ or at the ‘triveni-sangam ‘at Prayag (near modern day Allahabad, there are separate railway stations as ‘Prayag’ and ‘Prayag Ghat’ – which is at the bank of river Ganga)

There I came to know about the ‘Magh-Mela’ held every year, ‘Kalpwaas’ and ‘Kalpwaasis’ (pilgrims camping there at the ‘sangam-tat’) and the importance of the ‘maagh poornima’ and ‘mauni amavsya’.

The ‘magh-mela’ starts every year on ‘Makar Sankranti’ and ends with ‘Magh Purnima’; (though with low importance it continues till ‘Maha Shivratri’)

People used to rush to the ‘river banks’ on these days and one could see thousands of people taking ‘holy dip’ on these days.
This year these auspicious days fall on Makar Sankranti (15.01.16), Paush Purnima (23.01.16), and Mauni Amavasya – Monday, 8 February 2016, Vasant Panchami- Friday, 12 February 2016, and Magha Purnima- Monday, 22 February 2016.
(The ‘Magh Mela’ is, however, not confined to the month of ‘Magh’ (mid January-mid Feb of the ‘Gregorian’ calendar) only and the important bathing days are spread over a period of 45 days. It is also known as a ‘mini-kumbh’ mela.

(When I moved to Bareilly from Phulpur-Allahabad there was this river ‘Ram –Ganga’ and I have seen peoples travelling in packed train and sitting on the top of the train bogies to rush to the river for the holy bath.)

One of the auspicious days is ‘mauni amavsya’, and one could see more crowds on this day to take a ‘holy bath’ at the ‘triveni sangam’. This year it is on 8th February 2016 viz today.

‘Mauni amavsya’ or a ‘no-moon day’ of ‘Magh’ month is also observed as ‘day of silence’ in Hindu traditions. People take a ‘sacred bath’ in the ‘triveni sangam’ at ‘Prayag’ and worship Lord Vishnu as a part of ‘purifying act’.

But, why are we discussing it here on the blog? … Yes, there is a reason for that because we do have a song which talks about holy rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and the invisible river Saraswati and their ‘triveni-sangam’ and taking a ‘holy-dip’ in the ‘sangam’ on ‘Mauni Amavysya’. And what a wonderful song it is, and who else than Rafi Saab could have sung it giving it a touch of ‘purity and divinity’..
So here is this song from the ‘1978’ film ‘Sampoorna Sant Darshanam’.

‘Sampoorna Sant Darshanam-1978’ was directed by Adarsh.

It was a Shree Adarsh Arts, Bombay presentation. It had Jaimala, Ramesh Tiwari, Arpana Choudhary, Vrinda, Jagdeep, Heena Kausar, Chandrashekhar, Nazeer Hussain, C.S.Dubey, Helen, Shirish Kumar, Kanchan Mattu, Dev Sharma, Anup Jalota, Anand Bihari, Chandan Singh, Dev Gupta, Prabha, Gopal Vyas, Gulshan, Himmat Joshi, Hemant Kumar, Nazir Kashmiri and Majeet Kumar.

As mentioned in HFGK, this film had total ten songs composed by Jeetu Tapan. Lyrics of all the songs are by Vishweshwar Sharma.
Mohd Rafi, Anup Jalota, Anuradha, Arun Ingle, Puroshottam Jalota, Bramhe and Sandhya Rao gave their voices to these songs.

Thanks to the YT up loaders for uploading this song, let us listen to this song now …

Song-Saanchi tumhri preet ho raam (Bedaag)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

saanchi tumhri preet ho raam
jag ka pyaar hai jhootha
kar de seeta ko badnaam
ye sansaar hai jhoothha

ye bedaag ko daag lagaaye
ganga jal ko madira banaaye
amrit ka vish rakh de naam
ye sansaar hai jhoothha
saanchi tumhri preet ho raam
jag ka pyaar hai jhoothha

ye duniya kya degi sahaara
tu hi maanjhi tu hi kinaara
tu hi man ka meet ho raam
jag ka pyaar hai jhoothha
kar de seeta ko badnaam
ye sansaar hai jhoothha

angaaron pe chalna padega
har sita ko jalna padega
ye hai jag ki reet ho raam
jag ka pyaar hai jhoothha
saanchi tumhri preet ho raam
jag ka pyaar hai jhootha

Today is the birth anniversary of C.Ramchandra, one of the Best Music Directors the Hindi film industry had. He has left us long back, but his iconic songs live on, giving us pleasure even today and they will continue to do so in future as well, no matter what the current generation likes. Looking at the Remixes of C Ramchandra’s famous songs like, “Mere piya gaye Rangoon”, or “Sunday ke Sunday”, or even “Gore gore,o baanke chhore”, it is certain that his songs have a magical spell even over New Generations !

Genius of Jaidev – 40
——————————–
Searching on internet YouTube, I came across this Rafi’s 1969 ‘Sapna’ song for my ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series. According to HFGK this Rafi’s song is also sung by Krishna Kalle with some minor variations in lyrics for the same film. What can be better, as suggested by seniors of ASAD, than presenting two songs in one posting today, to remember Jaidevji, who took permanent ‘nirvaan’ on this day, the 6th January, 28 years ago!
