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

Bhajoon main to bhaav se

Posted on: June 30, 2011


“Pooran Bhagat” (1933) came just two years after the first Hindi talkie came up in 1931, and it is one of the oldest movie whose songs have been discussed in this movie.

This movie was an important milestone in the journey of Hindi movie and its music. It was in this movie that the voice of K L Saigal was first heard and this voice took the nation by storm.

Those days, listening to K L Saigal songs was possible only in the movie itself as well as on record players. In the later decades, radio stations came up and helped popularise movie songs. Radio Ceylon in fact made it a tradidion that K L Saigal’s song used to be the last song of their programme “Puraani Filmon ke geet” from 7-30 AM to 8 AM. Lovers of old music as well as immature kids like me who scoffed at the old songs have grown up listening to K L Saigal songs at the stroke of 8 AM.

With advancement of technology, first affordable personal computers came followed by affordable internet and this has led to a revolution in exchange of information. And that has enabled music lovers to become aware of even those songs which they may not have been aware of. This blog itself has discussed many such songs which one never heard in the past and which would have remained unheard but for the advancement of technology, and also because there were music lovers who preserved these songs and shared these songs with other music lovers.

Almost all of the K L Saigal songs that one listened at that programme has already been discussed in this blog. Now we are discussing those K L Saigal songs that are difficult to find on youtube etc. But fortunately almost all K L Saigal songs are available and I intend to discuss all the Hindi songs sung by K L Saigal, both filmy as well as non filmy songs.

Here is a bhajan from “Pooran Bhagat” (1933). It is sung by K L Saigal. Lyrics are written by Basant Kumar Dubey. Music is composed by R C Boral. Superb lyrics, wonderful music and what divine singing voice !

Here is this wonderful bhajan which I heard for the first time just a few days ago. I am sure music lovers will get suitable mesmerised by K L Saigal’s voice in this song. And let us not forget the contribution of the lyricist whose name is not even known to most music lovers. He unfortunately got to write songs only for this movie and then he died prematurely.

And R C Boral’s music, which consists of just a few instruments viz.Harmonium and tabla makes for fantastic accompaniment.

And one should also be thankful for the fact that a recording as old as this is still preserved in this pristine condition where one one can savour this song in such clarity.

Once again, Atul, you have done a great service to all of us through this song.

I remember Radio Ceylon’s Sunday program, “Bhoole Bisre Geet” aired between 10 and 11 p.m. Did it also have a Saigal song, it is hard to remember with the passage of years!

I was not aware of this programme aired late at night. I would listen to radio ceylon mostly in the morning and on wednesday night between 8 PM to 9 PM of course. 🙂 But staying awake between 10 and 11 pm was out of question. 🙂 I felt sleepy from 9 pm onwards itself. 😀

Arif ji,
If I am not mistaken,the said programme was presented on every Sunday as ” Hamesha jawan geeton ka programme,Bhoole Bisre Geet “.
In this programme,however, there was no Saigal song ever,as anyway,it was played everyday at 0757,in “purane filmon ke geet”.
Also,the signature tune of this Sunday Night programme was Lata’s song,”abhi to mai jawan hoon”
-AD

Atuljï, it nice that we can see the wording also.

I wish you can have more Bhajan with wordings, and Råga and Tåla. It will be perfect if Såregama is also added.

Bhajans with wordings are alright, but Raag and Taal are beyond the scope of this blog. If someone knowledgeable in these matters volunteers to undertake this work, then this can be done.

Atul Ji, You have echoed my thoughts: “Lovers of old music as well as immature kids like me who scoffed at the old songs have grown up listening to KLS songs …”. It is true that while we scoffed the old songs, they are somehow embedded in our beings. After discovering Saigal purely by accident during early adulthood in the US, I can now recall faint aural memories of some of his NFS on radio.
