Today (19 october 2017) is deepaawali, the biggest festival in India.

It may sound unbelievable, but it is the tenth Deepawali for the blog today (19 october 2017) ! The fact that we have lasted this long, and instead of losing steam, we seem to be adding new features to the blog means that we have come quite a long way from the first deepaawali of this blog in 2008.

We have covered 33 deepaawali songs in the blog in the past, and that includes all the well known deepaawali festival songs.

When we look at the deepaawali songs, we find that these songs can be broadly divided into two categories- happy and sad. Happy deepaawali songs exhort us to celebrate the festival, whereas sad deepaawali songs lament the fact the deepaawali may be happy for some but not quite so for others.

That should make us to think. How come the festival brings happiness for some but not for others, when presumably everyone is worshipping the same goddess Laxmi on the occasion !

I have give this matter some thought and I have come to my own conclusions.

I feel that we as Indians try to take short cuts instead of taking the trouble to achieve results the hard way, be it in our normal works, or in worship. So when we worship the goddess Laxmi, we think that doing her chaaploosi (singing her prayers) as well as bribing her (by offering her some chadhhaawa) does the trick. That way, we tend to believe that our gods are like our public officials.

Then people wonder why goddess Laxmi did not favour them. If one thinks about it, Goddess Laxmi does not favour the chaaploos and the bribe givers, rather she favours those who often do not even observe the festival of deepaawali. If we think about it, the richest and most prosperous nations of the world do not even observe deepaawali unlike Indians.

How is it that Americans, Germans, Japanese, South Koreans, people who do not even observe deepaawali are the most prosperous nations in the world ?

To my mind, they are prosperous because they actually worship two other Gods. The first is Goddess Saraswati. No, they do not do it by installing an idol of her on basant panchami, rather they do it by attaching enormous importance to quality education for their people.

A country’s wealth (defined as GDP per capita) is positively associated with its education expenditures. US spends 5.6 % of its GDP on education which amounts to $2600 per capita. India spends 3.3 % of its GDP on education and that adds up to a niggardly $ 50 per capita. So we see that US spends more money on education than the total GDP of India. Little wonder then that US citizens are in general vastly better educated.

After one is educated, that education must be used to build the nation. In other words, worship of goddess Saraswati must be followed by worship of Lord Vishwakarma. In India, manual labour is so looked down upon that blue collar workers, who help build the industry of a nation, are considered of low social status i India. We in India did not even worship Lord Vishwakarma till recently. It is only some one hundred years ago that British rulers introduced Vishwakarma Puja in India. It is the only Indian Puja that is held according to English calendar.

Put simply, we look down upon hands on work. We look down upon honest hard work. Whatever education that we as Indians receive gets wasted as it is not fruitfully employed.

Since we are neither properly educated nor properly trained in various vocations, so the quality of our output is poor. We do not appreciate quality. Little wonder then that our productivity is low which reflects in our abysmal per capita GDP of $ 1600, which is less that what US spends on education per capita.

When we worship goddess Laxmi on the Deepaawali night and hope that the goddess would bless us, how exactly is she going to bless us ? Surely it cannot be through lottery or jackpot. It will be through the same usual source, viz salary for the salaried, and through sales for the shop keeper. On the eve of Deepaawali, some staff earn “bonus” which a few days later end up in the bank accounts of shop keepers. So in effect it is the shop keepers who really get blessed by Goddess Laxmi during Deepaawali. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a song from “Shrimati Jee”(1952). This movie was directed by I S Johar for Filmistan, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Nasir Khan, Ram Singh, Murad, Samson, Vimla, Indira, Prabha, Baldev Mehta, Ram Avtar, Yashwant, Mirazkar, Agha Miraz, Majnu, Johar etc in it.

There were ten songs in the movie. nine of these songs have been covered in the blog. This tenth and final song from the movie is a deepaawali song where people implore goddess Laxmi to arrive at their residence. Why goddess Laxmi would not favour them with her visit has been explained by me in the writeup above. 🙂

The song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

With this rare song, “Shrimati Jee”(1952) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportuity to wish all the contributors, visitors and well wishers of this blog a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali. May Goddess Laxmi REALLY favour you with her blessing.

There have been lots of articles (in this blog and elsewhere) about the festival of Deepaawali. They mostly deal with the history of the festival, stories associated with it, how it is celebrated etc.

Deepaawali, and for that matter any festival is celebrated best when near and dear ones are present. That was not very difficult to ensure in the distant past when there were joint families and most people of such families stayed at the same place. With time, some family members began to go away for the purpose of employment. A time came when joint families themselves gave way to nuclear families consisting of just one set of parents and their kids.

Even in nuclear families, we have situations when all the members stay away from each other.

Those near and dear ones need to come together to celebrate festivals. If people are located at far off places, then they may not be able to come together for all festivals. But they all try and go back to their native places for the more important festivals.

Deepaawali IS the most important festival in India for majority of people. So almost everyone, who is based away from his/her original places wants to go back home on this occasion.

As a result, the transport sector sees its peak rush on the eve of as well as on the wake of Deepaawali. Travelling on public transport on this occasion is not at all easy. It is a herculean task and is not for the feeble of hearts.

As regulars of this blog know very well, my family is as nuclear as they come and my family members are all located in different states, away from each other by more than 1000 KM each. And that has been the case for the last five years or so.

Seeing that I am unlikely to get much leave, we tend to try and come together at my place on the eve of Deepaawali these days. That means arranging for my wife and daughter’s travel to my place.

My daughter is based in Maharashtra and my wife in MP. The logistics of their travels is arranged by me, of course. 🙂

So, my daughter must travel from Mumbai to Bareilly, whereas my wife must travel from Jabalpur to Bareilly. There is no direct train/ flight to Bareilly from either of these places. No matter how one plans, one needs to change over at one place (either Delhi or Lucknow) and then catch a train to Bareilly.

I arrange for my daughter to travel from Mumbai to Delhi and then she catches a train from Delhi to Bareilly. The most suitable train from Mumbai to Delhi is Rajdhani Express of course, which leaves Mumbai Central in the evening and arrived New Delhi next morning at 8:35.

The real tough job starts at Delhi. The earliest daily trains going towards Bareilly start from Old Delhi, and the earliest daily trains from New Delhi start only in the afternoon.

There is a way around, which I have worked out with experience. Twice a week, there is Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express that leaves at 9:30 AM and passes through Bareilly, reaching there in the afternoon.

So, based on my consultation with my daughter, I got her a ticket on Mumbai Rajdhani on saturday, that arrived New Delhi on sunday morning. One hour later, she would get Dibrugarh Rajdhani on the same station that would take her to Bareilly by 1:15 PM, by lunch time.

That was the plan, of course. But as usual, you rarely get confirmed reservation in any Indian train. I had got these tickets booked in early september itself but even then the status showed waiting list 60 in AC 2 in Mumbai Rajdhani. Even Dibrugarh Rajdhani ticket was waitlisted number 9.

These days, we have apps in mobiles for all purposes. Apps related to train travels are quite useful for those planning to travel by trains. There is one app that gives your current wait listed position, if one feeds the PNR. In addition, it also serves as an online astrologer and it predicts the likelihood of the ticket getting confirmed. 🙂

This app predicted that tickets of Mumbai Rajdhani and Dibrugarh Rajdhani both had about 65 % chances of getting confirmed. I kept checking up the status regularly for six weeks till the D date. While the waiting list figure was coming down for Mumbai Rajdhani, Dibrugarh Rajdhani WL figure would not change.

Just one day before the Mumbai Rajdhani train was to leave, the WL figure for its ticket became 6, with 75 % chances of it getting confirmed. That was too tight, so that meant I needed to adopt another approach.

In railways, there is this concept of Emergency Quota (EQ). All trains have EQ of a few berths at important stations. These berths are alloted to wait listed passengers who apply for them, based on a priority list. Request of people who are higher in the priority list gets preferred over those who are lower in the priority list. Most of these EQ are at originating stations. One needs to send requisition for EQ signed by someone whose signature would carry weight with the person allotting the EQ berths. Mumbai Rajdhani is a western Railway train so EQ for this train is allotted by a commercial department officer of Western Railway. I am a Railway officer so I needed to find some Railway officer at Western Railway HQ I was acquainted with who would be kind enough to send EQ requisition on my behalf. Fortunately I knew one such person in Western Railway HQ. So I sent him an SMS with the relevant details and he sent me the acknowledgement that he would send the requisition.

For trains on saturday and sunday, one must send the requisitions on friday itself. So I had sent my request for Mumbai Rajdhani on friday itself.

For trains originating at Delhi area, EQ are allotted by Rail Bhawan. So one needs to get such EQ application signed by someone in Rail Bhawan. So, I got one EQ requisition sent to Rail Bhawan as well on friday itself.

On saturday, the train was at 5 PM from Mumbai Central. Repeated checking up at the app was not making any difference at the WL figure of 6. Then at 1:30 PM, I found that my daughter had got a berth on this train through EQ. An upper berth, but a confirmed berth nevertheless. So, I phoned my daughter and asked her to arrive the station in time.

Our daughter has set up a whatsapp group for the three of us. My wife commented in that group- “good that you have got an upper berth. No one would eye your berth hoping to get it exchanged with his/her berth”. 🙂

I also have another railway related app to keep track of train movement. With the help of this app called NTES, I would keep track of the train movement. I kept track of the movement of the train and found that it was running on time and would arrive New Delhi right on time.

At night time, checking up on the PNR app I found that my daughter had got a berth under EQ in Dibrugarh Rajdhani as well. So now she was assured to a comfortable travel upto Bareilly.

She arrived New Delhi right on time and boarded Dibrugarh Rajdhani. Another person came to her berth and claimed that the berth allotted to my daugter was her berth. My daughter was under suspense and asked me if I had informed her the correct berth number. It was indeed the correct berth number and the SMS that IRCTC sends on users mobile very much confirmed it. I forwarded her the IRCTC sms.

A few hours later, it came to notice from TTE’s chart that the other person claiming this berth was supposed to occupy this berth after Bareilly, viz at Lucknow. So her claim that this was her berth from New Delhi itself was incorrect.

It is irritants like this that help young people like my daughter to learn to face life on their own, of course with the support of their parents who are in a position to help and guide them.

So finally my daughter arrived Bareilly right on time on sunday afternoon. She came home and the two pets were extremely happy to see her again.

My wife’s travel plan was that she would travel from Jabalpur on tuesday afternoon and would arrive Hazrat Nizamuddin by early Wednesday morning. There was no Dibrugarh Rajdhani for her to catch on that day so she would have to catch either Awadh Assam from old Delhi or Garibrath from New Delhi.

My wife had a confirmed berth in the Jabalpur-Nizamuddin train but all the morning trains from Delhi/ New Delhi to Bareilly were heavily wait listed, in addition to being poor quality trains as far as their running as well as the nature of passengers in them were concerned. I got wait listed ticket on them and thought about sending EQ for one of these trains.

It turned out that my wife had to attend a function in her office at 11 AM on the day of her journey to be attended by local MPs. This function got delayed and it became certain that she would not be able to catch her 3 PM train from Jabalpur. She phoned me frantically and wondered what to do. Was there any other train that started late ? I told her that trains starting late from Jabalpur would reach Delhi so late that she would not get any connecting trains. I told her that I would try to see if I could get her an accommodation in a train going from Jabalpur to Lucknow.

I logged on to IRCTC site and found that two berths in AC 2 were available on Premium Tatkal quota o the Lucknow bound train. I quickly booked a berth for her on that train, and informed my wife that she could peacefully attend her official function and board this night train from Jabalpur towards Lucknow. This train would reach Lucknow as 9:30 and then she would get Howrah-Jammu Tawi express at 10-40 AM that would take her to Bareilly by afternoon.

So my wife attended the official function with full peace of mind, cracked jokes with the MPs (old acquaintances of her) and then boarded the night train bound for Lucknow.

Next morning, when I ckecked the punctuality position of this train, I found that the train was getting delayed and delayed after it entered UP. The train, instead of arriving Lucknow at 9:30 AM arrived there only in the afternoon and by that time the connecting train, though also delayed, had already departed from Lucknow.

It was here where being a railway person helps. Railway people get free privilege passes to travel on train for them and their family members. Most of them would travel i trains oly o passes and would be averse to spend money on buying tickets. I on the other hand mostly get my wife and daughter to travel on trains by buying tickets as it saves time. Saving time to my mind is more important than saving money.

Seeing that my wife needs to change trains at Lucknow or Delhi, I have got her a railway pass to allow her to travel on this route, to be used when she misses her designated train as was the case here. There was an extremely late superfast train which had just arrived Lucknow nearly seven hours late. She managed to get a berth in that train with that pass.

Though a superfast train, which was not supposed to stop anywhere, it kept stopping all over and arrived Bareilly at night time, some eight hours late. While I was waiting for her train to arrive at Bareilly, I found that all trains were running extremely late and jam packed. Had she come via Delhi as origially planned, then her connecting trains from Delhi/ New Delhi would have arrived Bareilly even more late than the train she was coming from. I found Garib Rath arriving from New Delhi at 7 PM at Bareilly, some six hours late. Its coaches were jam packed with passengers. Travelling in this train would have been a nightmare for my wife, had this been her train from New Delhi to Bareilly. My wife commented that all this had happened for the better. Though she arrived a few hours later, and in the process she missed two trains with confirmed berths and also the money paid for these tickets, she arrived in reasonably good shape unlike most passengers who were travelling on this route on that day.

So, just as it was night time of 18 october 2017, the three of us finally managed to come together for the festival of Deepaawali. They will stay here for nearly a week. I addition to celebrating the festival together, it will help us all to take a break from our routines and help us recharge our mental batteries.

While searching for a song about coming together/ reunion, I was unable to come up with appropriate sogs at such short notice. However, I found this modern song from “Arzoo”(1999). This song is sung by Udit Narayan. The song is picturised on Saif Ali Khan.

The tune of this song is a much plagiarized tune that Anu Malik would employ in almost every song that he “composed”.

The real star of this song are its lyrics. and it is Anand Bakshi, the old warhorse, who has penned the song. This must be one of the last lyrics of Anand Bakshi in HFM. Ad it is such a nice song to listen to, just for its lyrics and picturisation.

I take this opportuity to wish all the contributors, visitors and well wishers of this blog a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali, in the company of all their near and dear ones.

“Jigar”(1949) was directed by Bhagwan for Chandni Chitra Production. The movie had Bhagwan, Leela Gupte, Vasantrao, Baburao etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jigar”(1949) to appear in the blog. This light hearted romantic song is sung by Lata and C Ramchandra. Ehsan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Bhagwan and leela Gupte.


Song-Chori chori tumse mulaaqaat huyi (Jigar)(1949) Singers-C Ramchandra, Lata Lyrics-Ehsan Rizvi, MD-C Ramchandra
Both

Lyrics

chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
dekho na jaane koi
aapas mein kya baat hui
dekho na jaane koi
aapas mein kya baat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

aankhon ke andaaz ko duniya pahchaane kyun
dil ke hanse rone ko aur koi jaane kyun
aayi bahaar kab
kis din ye barsaat hui
aayi bahaar kab
kis din ye barsaat hui

chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

dil ki mulakaat nahin gadbad se khaali
aisa na ho
ek din dekhen kotwaali
tum to sasuraal gayin
aji humko hawaalaat hui
tum to sasuraal gayin
aji humko hawaalaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

dil se mila dil
to aafat bhi jhelna
aasaan pyaar mein hai agni se khelna
dil se mila dil
to aafat bhi jhelna
aasaan pyaar mein hai agni se khelna

himmat badhaaogi to sukh bhi uthhaaogi
nahin to fansa ke humen aansu bahaaogi
nahin to fansa ke humen aansu bahaaogi
waada nibhaana pakki baat hui
waada nibhaana pakki baat hui

dekho na jaane koi aapas mein kya baat hui
dekho na jaane koi aapas mein kya baat hui

chori chori
ho chori chori
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

Lyrics

jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
ae bhoolne waale o zara darna
ae bhooulne waale o zara darna
dukhi dil ki haaye na pad jaaye

dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye

ithhlaati chali aati hai mast hawaayein
baalam bedardi ee

ithlaati chali aati hai mast hawayein
baalam bedardi ee

haaye bhoolne waale o zara sun le
haaye bhoolne waale o zara sun le
dukh de ke tu bhi dukh paaye
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
dukh de ke tu bhi dukh paaye
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye

jab saari suniya soye
koi yaad mein teri roye
koi yaad mein teri roye
jab saari suniya soye
koi yaad mein teri roye
koi yaad mein teri roye
ab o bedardi aaja
phirte hain khoye khoye
ab o bedardi aaja
phirte hain khoye khoye
haaye bhoolne waale o ab aaja
haaye bhoolne waale o ab aaja

tere bin ab kaun bitaaye
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
jab teri yaad aati hai
dil mera bhar bhar aaye
