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

Tere sang ek simple si coffee

Posted on: June 23, 2012


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

Browsing through this blog today, my eye fell upon a song category which was “chai song”. The word chai makes me think immediately of one of my best friends ever, lets call her V. We worked in the same office, but it took another common friend who worked elsewhere to introduce us. My friend H got to know her and upon finding out where she worked immediately called me up and said “You must go and talk to this girl called V, she is truly bindaas, you will like her.”

We have several departments in our office and people work in shifts, which makes if difficult for us know every person that works here. However, in the building that housed our office at that time, around 5-6 years ago, there was only one ladies washroom. Because of this we often had to queue up outside it, and chat with fellow ‘wait-ers’. H had talked to V about me too, and urged her to make friends with me, and also shown her my profile on Orkut. Upon seeing my picture there she immediately said “Oh yes, I know her, I have often run into her outside the washroom”. She repeated this line to me when she introduced herself and it was an ice-breaker, as we burst into laughter.

V was bindaas (as H had said), full of beans, always saying or doing something. She had (it seemed to me) limitless energy and was always working on some project or the other. We would often drop by each others’ room for a bit of chat. Soon we were thick with each other and had to have a talk each day. Soon we knew each other’s problems, hopes and fears inside out. When our office shifted to a new location, we got used to meeting each other at 4 PM each day for a ‘chai session’. We would take a seat at the back of the canteen, so we could talk undisturbed. V was a serial chai drinker, it had to be sweet, strong and piping hot. I would nurse one cup for a long time, while she would often down 3-4. At that time she was going through a tough time in her personal life and I was the only one she could unburden herself to. This often prolonged our chai sessions. After office hours, we would walk outside the building talking away.

V left her job 3 years ago to go abroad for higher studies. She lives in another country now, and is working and writing a book. I was touched when we ran into each other on fb chat a week or so ago and she said “Ava I miss our chai sessions”. My heart went out to her, staying far away from her family and her daughter, striving hard so she may be able to give a good life to her little girl.

In the office, we always had tea, but at times we went out to a CCD (Cafe Coffee Day) for coffee. In this song from the film Zindagi, Abhishek Bachchan takes Bipasha Basu on a date to a coffee house.

Though this is a new song, it is catchy and has unusual lyrics. V, wherever you are, I cannot hear the word Chai or CCD without thinking of you, and miss you too, girl!

Lovely write-up, Ava. Feelings straight from the heart – hope your friend is doing well, wherever she is.

I’ve never heard this song before. But that’s hardly surprising, considering it’s from this millenium. 🙂 It is catchy, no doubt, though the chai part of it is only for a part of the song.

Although this blog is mainly for unearthing and remembering gems of the distant past, an occasional T20-like song does not harm at all. 🙂 It may even bring the younger generation crowd into this blog, they may then find some of the other older songs interesting. A bit like T20 bringing in new cricket followers. 🙂 Although I’m sure, Atul, unlike the BCCI, will balance it quite well here. 🙂

Sorry, I keep making analogies all the time, and they’re often about cricket. I’m pretty mad in this respect. Already when I see Atul’s blog score at 6123 right now, the first thought that comes to my mind is Neil Harvey – 6149. One of my favourite Aussie cricketers from yesteryear.

Ok, enough digressing. It is a lovely write-up, Ava. Thank you. You should write more.

Thank you Raja. I just love that line so much ‘tere sang, ik simple si coffee bhi kick deti hai’, it brings those crazy days to mind when V and I could talk for hours over coffee or chai.

For me, a song is a song. It could belong to a movie from 2012 or a movie from 1936, as long as it is good, it does not matter.

And yes, this blog needs songs from all years.

Hullo Ava Ji
i second ur statement :- “For me, a song is a song. It could belong to a movie from 2012 or a movie from 1936, as long as it is good, it does not matter.”
my current favourite is from “Bol Bachchan” where Amitabh Bachchan makes an appearance only in the title song. and the whole song is fun to listen to.
so a song is a song is music to the ears no matter how many years old.

oh & By The Way Bol Bachchan is also a Rohit Shetty directorial.

Ava,
You have a very open mind in music. On other hand…very few songs after 1970 that I like to listen, may be because by than I left India too.
How about if Atul ji can make a blog on… chai songs, paan songs, bhang songs…etc (lol)…?
Only chai song that I know…it’s…”Iss liye mummy ne meri tumhe chai pe bulaya hai”

I liked your line “a song is a song,it could belong to a movie from 2012 or from 1936”

I liked your post, and I like the song and I am also a true lover of coffee and chai.So I can feel the line “Kick dethi hai”

And some info.about director of this movie:
Rohit Shetty
This movie is his first directorial venture. I liked his direction in this movie, its about a plane hijack.
After this movie Rohit shetty made it to big league with his Golmaal series of movies,Sunday,All the Best,Singham etc.
Rohit shetty is son of legendary fight composer/actor
Late Shetty/M.B.Shetty/Master Shetty/Setty.

Rohit shetty got another brother Hriday shetty who also directed movie Plan(2004-(starring sanjay dutt,sanjay suri,dino moria))
Pyar MeinTwist(2005-starring Rishi Kapoor,Dimple Kapadia-nice movie)

Prakashchandraji, thanks for all that information. I had no idea Rohit Shetty directed this film. I haven’t seen it, though I know it was one of the better films of that time. I did not even know that Rohit Shetty was the son of fight composer Shetty. Wow! No wonder he gets along so well with Ajay Devgan.

Ava ji
In fact Rohit Shetty started his career (at the age of 15 years)as assistant director to Kuku Kohli on the film Phool Aur Kaante(Ajay Devgan debut starrer)as per IMDB

Prakashji,
After your interesting introduction of Rohit Shetty, I bought the dvd of Singham and just now finished watching it with my family. My little son, loved it. Bachpan mein “Shetty” ko sabhi bachhon ne man hi man mein kitna peeta hoga, yeh kahene ki jarurat nahin hai.
