Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Kyaa se kyaa ho gayaa bewafaa tere pyaar mein

Posted on: June 13, 2011


This article is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Even as I type out this write-up, my fingers are trembling. And I am not exaggerating! I have written over 50 write-ups for this blog so far and yet I find myself struggling to put down my thoughts coherently for this particular piece. It is not as if I have writer’s block (which I may also well have) ; it is just that the occasion seems to have got the better of me. I find myself totally inadequate to the occasion, and although I’ve just started, I have this nasty foreboding that I am going to make a mess of this, I am going to end up “choking”. I am suddenly beginning to empathise and sympathise with the South African cricket team. 😀

So I would request all readers to bear with me while reading this. While this write-up will, in all likelihood, end up being extremely ordinary, the milestones it marks are anything but.

When Atul contacted me some days ago informing me that Rafi saab’s 1000th song on this blog was just round the corner, he need not have. I’ve been watching his statistics page like a hawk for a long time now – with my eye firmly set on just this one statistic. 🙂 Atul, knowing me long enough now to know what Rafi saab means to me, suggested that maybe I’d like to provide the write-up for his 1000th song.

Everytime I provide a write-up for this blog, I do so with the utmost love and affection for it. I consider it a huge honour to share my thoughts here in Atul’s space – and everytime Atul has offered me a chance, I’ve jumped at it.

And to write for Rafi saab’s 1000th! That’s an honour that is SO overwhelming that I just do not know what to say. That’s definitely one of the reasons I’m struggling right now.

Only one of the reasons. Because, as if this is not pressure enough, Atul casually informed that he plans to make Rafi saab’s 1000th co-incide with his blog’s 4000th song overall. Thanks, Atul, that was JUST the pressure I needed! You might as well ask me to open the batting for India against Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel on a bouncy South African wicket! 🙂

So THAT’s what I’m up against here! A double-mega-milestone – this song is both Rafi saab’s 1000th on this blog AND this blog’s 4000th. NOW you understand why I feel I will never be able to do justice to this occasion?

Anyway, pressure aside, I do consider it a massive honour to be asked by Atul to write up this piece. So let me give it a shot.

First, Rafi saab. Where do I start writing about him? Not even talking about how chhoti munh I am compared to the badi baat that he is, what can I write about him that is not already there in the public domain? Any ardent Rafi saab fan will find plenty of material about him out there on the internet, right from his early days to his last days. I don’t see any point in just repeating this.

I will therefore talk about Rafi saab from my personal perspective. How I learnt about him and what he means to me.

To be honest, when I first started becoming aware of Hindi songs, I only knew songs, I did not know the singer(s) of the songs. But, I knew enough to know that there was one ruling king of Hindi songs – and that was Kishore Kumar. Yes, I am talking of the turn of the 1960s decade and the early 1970s.

Anybody who has lived through that period will immediately know what I am talking about. It was the time of a change of guard and the ushering of a new era. Kishore Kumar, as singer, was the face of that new era. His songs were such big hits – and he was so prolific – that a young boy like me was completely in his awe.
Around that time, while I was still not even 10, there was a song concert in my little town. The performers were, as usual, singing famous songs of various singers. Kishore, being the toast of India at that time, hogged most of the songs, especially considering many of the songs were “then-current” hits.

And then, from somewhere back in the crowd (I was sitting in front), I could hear some voices saying “We want Rafi, we want Rafi”. The cry began gaining momentum and grew louder.

I remember being very surprised. I had heard of Mohammad Rafi but only in one context – that he “used to be a singer” who had been completely “overtaken” by Kishore Kumar. Obviously then he could not have been very good, right? So why was somebody interested in listening to this washed-up singer’s songs?

Anyway, the cries were so loud by then that I think the rest of the evening (there was not much of it) was devoted to satisfying these farmaishes. I do not remember the specific songs except for “baharon phool barsao”.

It may sound strange but that incident, all those years ago, has still remained in my mind. Primarily because it was the first indication to me that, even during the sweeping Kishore wave, there were some people who wanted to listen to a singer called Mohammad Rafi.

As I grew up, I gradually began to be able to distinguish voices of singers. But even then, it was Kishore’s voice that I heard the most – he was everywhere! In the first half of the 70s, although Rafi sang some lovely songs, anybody who suggests that he posed a challenge to Kishore would have to be in cuckoo land!

Another memory from those days comes to mind.

We had got a cassette player in 1974 and had got a few movies’ songs which we would play continuously. Guddi, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Kora Kaagaz, Abhimaan, Zanjeer. Now my paternal grandmother, who used to live with us, did not know a word of Hindi but liked listening to these cassettes. She was sharp – and could distinguish singers’ voices much better than I could. I remember, whenever I would play Abhimaan, she would immediately say “play THAT one”. She meant “Teri bindiya re”. In a movie full of lovely songs, she always picked this one.

It was much later that I realized that the male voice in this was Rafi saab’s. Yes, this was her way of giving him her stamp of approval. She did not understand the words one bit but what words do you need when you have a voice like THAT to listen to?

I continued my journey through school, constantly increasing my awareness of songs and singers. I must say my schoolmates were unabashedly Kishore fans. Those were the times, I guess. Mid-70s. What do you expect?

The next time I seriously noticed Rafi saab was with “parda hai parda” from Amar Akbar Anthony. I cannot help feeling that song was the biggest hit of the movie, though some will argue that the title song or Anthony Gonsalves was bigger. Whatever, this song was massive and Rafi saab was once again in the reckoning.

Then Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin – and “kya hua tera waada” – happened. This song was, without doubt, the biggest hit of the movie. And possibly of the year. It was beginning to look as though this “washed-up” singer of yesteryear may not be all that bad after all.

Rafi saab continued to have a few hits – “aadmi musafir hai”, “tere haathon mein pehna ke chudiyaan”, “dard-e-dil, dard-e-jigar” and so on. By now I was beginning to warm to his voice. Not that I considered it better than Kishore’s, no way! But yes, it was different – and I liked it.

Around that time, I read an article on Rafi saab. Probably by Raju Bharatan in the Illustrated Weekly. As is typical of Bharatan, in his rambling style, he mentioned a number of Rafi songs. Including “o duniya ke rakhwaale” as being one of his best.

I’d never heard the song but I got curious to listen to it.

In those days, there was no internet to allow you to quickly check out any song you want. And where I lived – and in the environment I lived in – getting even a music cassette was an uphill task. The radio was my one source and hope.

And then, one day, in the afternoon, in the 1.00 – 1.30 programme on AIR, I heard it!

I already knew the song was from Baiju Bawra – when the announcer said “Film : Baiju Bawra, Awaaz Mohammad Rafi”, I froze.

By the time the song was over, there were tears in my eyes, my hairs were standing on end! No song had EVER made such an impact on me! Just the “bhagwan” bit was enough to make me realize that I was listening to something special here. I wanted to hear the song again. And again. But hey, that was radio! I had to be content with listening to it that one time and hoping that I’d hear it somehow soon on radio again. Till then, I’d have to keep playing it in my head.

To date, I consider that moment to be the defining moment for me in my Rafi saab discovery!

Almost immediately after that, I got to hear “suhaani raat dhal chuki”, “ye parbaton ke daayre”, “ek dil ke tukde hazaar hue”, “dil mein chhupa ke pyar ka toofan le chale”, “toote hue khwabon ne”, “ek tera saath” and many other Rafi saab songs.

There was never going to be any turning back after that. Certainly not after I heard “suhaani raat dhal chuki”. I was sold on that voice for life.

Since then, I’ve heard countless number of Rafi saab’s songs. Thanks to the Internet, I stumble upon a new song on youtube every other day. And I keep thanking God for giving us Rafi saab and talking to us through his voice. For his voice was divine, I have no doubt about that. If you want any vindication of this, you just need to listen to singer SP Balasubramaniam’s opinion of Rafi saab. He literally cries with emotion when he listens to Rafi saab, he says he has never known a voice as divine as this.

What I find absolutely amazing about Rafi saab is that, for a person with such a divine voice and so much scope for being arrogant, he seems to have also been one of the nicest, most humble persons India has ever known. I’ve read a lot about him – and not one person has one bad thing to say about him. Even Lata Mangeshkar, who had that tiff with him on the royalty issue, said that it was not Rafi saab’s fault (she said he was too nice a person!) but that he had been instigated.

There are a handful of videos out there on youtube with interviews of Rafi saab. For me, they are gold! They clearly bear out what many who knew Rafi saab say about him – that he was a very gentle, soft-spoken and simple person. No airs at all.

I can keep on and on about Rafi saab but I am aware that this is getting too long already. And I haven’t even started talking about the song for this blog!

When I had to pick a song for this write-up, I was in a bit of a quandary. Should I pick a very obscure Rafi song? After all, this blog does unearth obscure songs from yesteryear. Should I pick a famous song as this milestone song? In any case, what sort of song should I pick? A fast one, a slow one? A bhajan or a qawwali or some other type? After all, Rafi saab has sung practically every type of song out there.

I decided to go with a song that is one of his better-known songs and that has, surprisingly, not yet been posted. Maybe it was waiting for this occasion! Besides, I wanted a song that would highlight at least some aspects of Rafi saab’s nuances.

The song I have gone with is “kya se kya ho gaya” from Guide. Like I’ve said, this is a pretty well-known song. And from one of the best-known movies of Hindi cinema. In a film that is choc-a-bloc with one great song after another, “kya se kya” still manages to hold its own. Rafi saab’s voice is just perfect as it reflects the disillusionment of Raju guide. The words (penned by Shailendra) are lovely too as he talks of an end to all the pretensions of his relationship with Rosie. The music, as one would expect from S D Burman, , accentuates the despairing mood of the song. This is a masterpiece in a movie full of masterpieces and I think, reasonably deserving of being the 1000th Rafi saab song on this blog – and the 4000th song as such.

Which brings me to THAT landmark.

4000 songs!!! Wow!!!

If I am lost for words, it is not because this is already a long write-up. It is because the sheer number 4000 holds me in total awe at the moment.

How does one get to writing about 4000 songs on a blog? And that in about 2-3 years? Not just the video of the song but detailed lyrics (obtained after listening to the song again and again). And then a write-up for every song. It calls for amazing effort and dedication. And when it is done without a goal of any monetary benefit of any sort, it calls for amazing passion to be able to sustain such an effort.

And Atul has demonstrated, time and again, that he has all of this. Otherwise, there’s no way this blog would be seeing this day. It is a LOT of effort to keep this going – especially for somebody who also has a full-time job and a family to attend to. I have occasionally listened to songs to note down their lyrics and send them to Atul – it requires a lot of patience. Often the lines sung are not clear, often the audio quality (especially with very old songs) is not good. If you do not genuinely love the song, you can easily get disheartened. Atul does not – he perseveres. And not just that. Since he has very high standards and tries to get everything right, he goes that extra mile that many others may not bother with.

I have known this blog from the day it was born. Today, when it touches the magical figure of 4000 songs, I feel very emotional about it. I can imagine how Atul must be feeling. He is the one who has put in all those hours, I’ve only been a co-traveller, enjoying the songs here and occasionally contributing a bit with a guest post. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this journey, from the very first day. In the early days, I used to flood Atul with farmaishes 😉 . I think he may even have got a bit fed up with them 😉 but he would religiously record them on a sheet and tick them off as and when he would be able to include them in the blog. Over a period of time, my farmaishes got reduced but I continued to enjoy the blog and have discovered many gems, thanks only to this blog.

There have been many other co-travellers and I think they have helped to provide Atul with not just material and farmaishes for the blog but also necessary motivation and encouragement.

I am aware that, over the last couple of months, I have not been able to spend as much time on the blog as I otherwise used to. As a result, I have also not left many comments here. This has nothing to do with the blog as such, or with any loss of interest on my part. I am extremely fond of this blog, it is one of the first blogs I check out almost everyday and I don’t expect my interest to wane ever. As long as I love old Hindi songs (and that’s for as long as I live), I will love this blog.

As usual, whenever we hit a 100-milestone (in this case, a 1000-milestone), we look forward to the next 100. I am already looking forward to 4100 now. Like we keep saying, there are plenty of gems out there that are not yet posted here. That’s good news for this blog because it means there’s something to look forward to every day.

So here’s wishing Atul the very best for the next 100 – and thanking him from the bottom of my heart for the first 400. Sorry, 4000!!!

A memory, momentous,
A drop, which shapes.
The legacy that lingers,
It is the purity which prevails.

Congratulations !

Thanks a lot.

It is a team (you are also part of the team) that I hope will continue to see us move from one milestone to other.

Atul ji,

Many many hearty and melodious congratulations on reaching this milestone. Although the blog is named ‘Song-a-Day’, we have been steaming ahead much faster. Wow, and thanks for all the perseverance and hard work, as Raja ji put it. 🙂

Raja ji,

I went through the write up once, and really that was not enough, I had to read it again. And I can relate to the emotions you mentioned in the write up. I was having goose bumps being reminded once again of all the wonderful songs that Rafi saab has bestowed to the Indian music world. The song from Baiju Bawra you wrote about, yes, it still sends a tingle down the spine when I hear it. It is a breathtaking revelation – every time one listens to it.

In my humble opinion, Rafi saab had one very unique quality that at least I have not felt any other singer ever had. Every song that he has sung, whoever is the person on the screen performing it, Rafi saab’s voice never ever seems unnatural on any person or any situation. He had this exceptional characteristic that he could modulate his voice to simply blend into the personality of the person on the screen, and the situation in which the song is to be played. I believe it has a lot to do with the humility and honesty that was the hallmark of his own personality.
For every other singer, one can find this quality, albeit limited to blending with some actors and situations, not with everyone. Be it Kishore or Mukesh, or Manna Dey, or Hemant Kumar, or Talat. Either they individually had a range beyond which they were not suitable, or their own range and voice is so distinctive, e.g. Kishore Da, that it simply takes over the personality on the screen, and then sometimes seems unnatural for some actors.
This one quality of Rafi saab is really unique and outstanding.

Thanks for such a wonderful sampling through the years. As I said, I can relate to the experiences you have written about.

Yes, originally the idea was to discuss one song a day, but there are so many great songs out there that we would only be at 1000 songs mark now if I had continued at that rate. Hopefully we will have many more thousands of songs including a few more individual thousands. That will keep us busy for a long long time indeed.

Atul ji,
Heartiest congratulations and a BIG thank you too, for reaching a double whammy of Rafi at 1000 and the blog at 4000 same time.
I truely feel happy that I am also a co-traveller in this Music Yatra of Yore.
My day starts with the opening of this page and invariably ends with a final glance again at it,to see if I missed anything !
May you continue doing this,and giving pleasure to many like us.
He who makes others happy,is GOD’s favourite !

Raja ji,
What a passionate and emotional expression of your mind in the article !
It clearly shows how much you are attached to the endeavour of Atul ji.People like you and sudhir ji are the strengths of Atul ji who are there anytime he needs you.
I congratulate you for getting the welldeserved honour of presenting the double event of Rafi 1000 and Blog 4000 song.

Thanks a lot. Your invaluable information about the backgrounds of songs is something we all love to read and I myself look forward to your comments as much as you look forward to the “new” songs every day.

Wonderful! Interestingly, this song also shows how the singers, music directors and lyricists worked very closely together to make music flow with the story, this song follows ‘mose chhal kiye jaye’ in the film and infact mesmerises Dev Anand into ‘singing’ ‘Kya se kya ho gaaya’ No wonder both songs are based on the same classical raag to reflect the mood and the mental state. These little touches add to the impact of the song even to those not interested in classical music!

Thanks for this insight into the song. I have not seen the full movie at a stretch so I was not aware that these two songs follow each other.

Hullo Atul
& Rajaji
Phew! That was one long write up and lovingly done at that. all the love Raja has towards Rafi saab has poured in to it.
Congrats to the major contributors of this space in cyber world—- Raja, Sudhir, Lalitha and the master of our tribe Atul on achieving the 4000 mark by marking our love for Rafi saab with this 1000th tribute. lets get on to the next 1000. whose chance is it next? Lataji has touched that number already.
if i may bore from Rajaji—
over the last couple of months, I have not been able to spend as much time on the blog as I otherwise used to. As a result, I have also not left many comments here. This has nothing to do with the blog as such, or with any loss of interest on my part.

As long as I love old Hindi songs (and that’s for as long as I live), I will love this blog.
Long live atulsongaday.wordpress.com

Thanks. I hope you will be able to spend as much time here as you did in the past.

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. I must admit I was quite emotional when I was writing this piece. I like all singers, I’ve always respected all of them but Rafi saab has a very special place in my heart. And Atul knows this. 🙂

Anybody who was around in the 70s (especially the early 70s) would know how dominant Kishore Kumar was. I was in school then, surrounded by Kishore mania. They were lovely songs too. To date, I am a big fan of Kishore Kumar. But once I got exposed to more Rafi saab’s songs, I began realising how special the quality of his voice and singing was. Just one example – “Man tarpat Hari darshan ko aaj” (Baiju Baawra) is a good enough illustration of his voice. And there are many examples to pick from.

I think the world of music is big enough to accommodate different singers, different styles ; it is we people who try to play one singer against the other, we try to pull down one singer’s songs to make another look good. The singers themselves had huge respect for each other.

Adding to my Rafi saab-related emotion was the emotion associated with this blog’s 4000th. Memories of the early days of the blog came flooding back to me – I remember I used to send farmaishes in batches of 10 (or more) to Atul regularly. They are probably still there on the farmaishes page (or on the page he had before he created a separate farmaishes page).

Anyway, it was a very enjoyable experience, writing on this momentous occasion for this blog. And a huge honour too.

It was on the eve of posting this 4000th song that I began to realise the enormity of the occasion. The fact that writing this song made you emotional makes me emotional as well. I knew it that you could do justice to this particular post and you have exceeded all our expetations. I have myself gone through this article quite a few times and I can never get enough of this article.

Indeed you are very correct in pointing out that one need not put one singer against another and try to prove someone superior at the cost of another. Music, like most things in life, are best enjoyed with an open mind.Different singers have their own unique qualities and we need to appreciate them for that.

As can be seen from the stas page, there are over 200 singers, lyricists and music directors each who have figured in this blog, and they all have brought immense pleasure to our lives and enriched our musical experiences. I would love to see a day when we will have more individual thousands by other artists too. It is my cherished dream to see at least a couple of more such thousands within the next one year. I am sure that with the encouragement and support of all concerned, this target, as well as many similar daunting looking targets will become realities in due course.

This is truly a moment to savor, to remember, to relish and to cherish forever – Atul’s blog has its 4000th song, Raja does the write up, the song is Rafi’s 1000th, and to crown it all (for me, that is!) – it is a Dev Anand song from “Guide” (by my favorite writer, R K Narayan, even if he was unhappy with the movie!) – what more can I ask for? Thanks to all of you for this wonderful opening to this day!

For one who is used to rambling, this is something – I am tongue-tied! Which moved me more – the write up or the song itself? Hard to say, since the song was such a heartfelt song, sung with such emotion and soul searching by Rafi, that one can actually feel the depths of Raju’s anguish at that moment, and here the writer is talking about how Rafi actually got under the skin of the actor and became one with him and his emotions, and this in spite of the fact that Raja grew up in a period when Kishore was king and thus exposed to more Kishore songs that Rafi numbers! It was different for me, since I was listening to less music and more infant cries by that time, and later, I moved away from India, so even while I was resentful of Kishore taking over from Rafi, it didn’t matter too much for one who wasn’t listening to music any more!

Like Peeveesie’s mom and Raja, I too haven’t been posting many comments here lately, because life has been a little hectic lately, my father hasn’t been well, my grandbaby has been visiting us, we have been going to see her, and so on, but this song and the occasion made me pause and then, here I am, rambling away as always!

Congratulations, Atul, for this milestone! Thanks, Raja and Rafi and Burmanda!

I hope you will be able to find more tim in future as things improve on your personal fronts. Your comments mean a lot to me as well as to the other regulars of this blog.

I totally second that! Lalitha’s comments have always been not just encouraging but also full of nostalgia. She usually talks about when she first heard a song, usually in the late 1950s/early 1960s. (Oops, am I revealing too much here? 😉 ).

There was a time when Lalitha and I would be apparently competing for farmaishes here. As Jhumri Tilaiya and Rajnandgaon did for Vividh Bharati. But I say “apparently” because it was no contest. I started off well (in the Powerplay) but Lalitha, picked up lots of ones and twos in the middle overs and finally beat me to it. I should’ve known better. Whenever a man thinks he is winning against a woman, he is only under an illusion. He is winning only as long as the woman wants him to think he is winning. 😉

Rajaji

What a wonderful writeup on the legend.

Like you I was also grown up in an era when Kishore was a rage, but I was naturally inclined towards Rafi’s voice and spending all my pocket money in purchasing his cassettes and getting his famous songs recorded.

I still have my first recorded cassette, its a Cherry C90 and consists around 32 Rafi songs. I have a database of around 4500 Rafi songs in my Harddrive.

A database of 4500 Rafi songs ! wow ! That means almost all Rafi songs. I hope you will be able to share some rare Rafi songs with music lovers.

And a short note for Raja: wonderful write-up as always! If you tremble when you write, especially on an occasion such as this one, what would mere mortals like us do? I have absolutely no idea why you should even think of trembling!

Thanks, Lalitha. It was just the occasion. I felt I would NEVER be able to do justtice to it. Rafi saab’s 1000th song here is SUCH a special occasion. And, on top of that, the blog itself celebrating its 4000th!

Once I got started, and my thoughts began flowing a bit, it got easier. Talking of Rafi saab, I could have gone on and on but I realise there’s only so much people can take from me at any given point in time. 🙂

Hope your dad gets better and your grandchild keeps you on your toes. Make sure to teach him/her some songs from this blog. 😉

The uniqueness of this song lies in the fact that inspite of being a second song in continuity of first ‘Mose chaal kiye jaayee’ in the filming in the movie nobody left the cinema hall for toilet or a ‘fag’ , a fashion those days.Though wordings don’t have that much depth but composition and rendition is far ahead to make this song evergreen.

Music lovers will not leave their seats, but visitors to a movie (as also a cricket match) are not all music (or cricket) aficionados. I have seen people leave movie halls for better things when great songs were being played (and when Sachin Tendulkar was nearing his record breaking century). There are people who visit movie halls (and cricket stadiums) for popcorns,eatables,and for going to the loo, rather than for the movie (match) per se. 🙂

My first comment here on the 4000th song – I seem to know some of the names from Memsaab’s blog. It’s been an education merely looking at the songs and then the big bonus is that there are lyrics too. What a labour of love!
Great song and I never realized that close on the heels of Mose Chhal by Lata comes this song by Rafi and the tune is the same – someone pointed it out to me several years ago.
Keep up the good work. I hope I can look through every song posted here. Please accept my thanks for what promises to be a treasure trove of tunes.

First comment on the 4000th song ! I hope you will be more prolific in your comments after this belated beginning. 🙂 Yes, several of the regulars here can be found commenting in Memsaab’s blog too, and that includes me as well. Likewise Memsaab too can be seen commenting here. We music lovers like to stick together in interwebs. 🙂

Movie-Guide, Music-S.D. Burman, Actors-Devanand and Waheeda Rehman. Can any one imagine a better combination for a romantic movie than this? Not that I can remember. What about you? Please do not mention any of the current craps!
