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

Dil ko na mere tadpaao

Posted on: December 31, 2012


Today (31 december 2012) is the last day of the year. People, and especially newspapers etc take a look back at the year gone by on this occasion. I found that wordpress.com, on which this blog is hosted, has also prepared an Annual Report for the blog.

Here is what the report says about the blog activities in 2012:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 1,700,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 31 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

In 2012, there were 2,062 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 7,291 posts.
(Note: The report is prepared on 30 december 2012. The correct figure at the end of 31 december 2012 would be 2071 posts for the year and 7300 posts overall.

The busiest day of the year was January 26th with 8,777 views.

The statistics provided in the report show that visitors from as many as 199 countries have visited this blog in 2012. Most visitors were from India, followed by US and UK. Most visitors were referred to this blog through email notifications from yahoo, from facebook, and from Memsaab’s blog. I thank them all. As far as search words in search engines were concerned, most popular search word for the blog was “atulsongaday”, followed by “hai preet jahaan ki reet sada lyrics”. This post, Hai preet jahaan ki reet sada posted on 26 january 2009 is the most popular post of all time in the blog (over 30,000 views, including 800 views on 15 august 2012), followed by Dil dhoondhta hai phir wahi (Mausam) and Matlabi hain log yahaan par.

The blog has some very dedicated regulars who contribute in many ways including through their comments. Our own beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh has been the number one commenter followed by Prakashchandra, Khyati Bhatt and Derubala.

This blog, in its over four years of existence has evolved gradually and by now it has become a realtime online collaboration of likeminded music lovers. The pooling up of collective resources and sharing of knowledge and knowhow by extremely dedicated and passionate individuals have begun to yield some amazing results for music lovers to savour. For instance, we now have a collection of 7300 of the best songs (full with lyrics and other valuable information) in this blog, which is nearly 15% of all the Hindi movie songs that were created from 1931 to 1980 (the era of interest for this blog). We have dug up and uploaded a few songs that were presumed extinct by all concerned. We have discussed information about forgotten movies and persons that were earlier not available on internet.The blog has helped disseminate authentic information about Hindi movie songs as far as practicable. Some of the well known and well respected historians of HFM are directly and/or indirectly associated with this blog which is a matter of great pride for us all.

We in this blog keep finding ways to evolve and grow, as I have mentioned earlier. One fine day, the blog added a page on “anniversary dates” and that page caught the fancy of the readers for a few days and it became the most commented post/page of the blog this year. Being able to know about various anniversaries enabled up to plan our anniversary related postings better. A few months earlier, we had added another page namely Movies-all songs covered. This page now enables us to keep track of movies where just a few songs are left to be discussed. This page has been so invaluable to us that we have now had over 200 movies that have all their songs covered. That adds up to over 1400 songs (nearly 20% of all songs posted in the blog).

The statistics page added a couple of years ago has already paid rich dividends and now we are able to track the number of songs associated with various artists much better.

All the above additions / enhancements to the blog have come about because of the suggestions/ feedbacks etc that the readers of this blog have provided. I hope that we will keep progressing and keep adding more songs, informations and features as our musical bandwagon continues to roll on.

In discussing the achievements of the blog in 2012, let us not forget the song under discussion. 🙂 This song is from “Badtameez” (1966). The song is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Shammi Kapoor. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Atif M.

This song is the seventh song from the movie. It will not come as a surprise to those who keep a watch on the above mentioned Movies-all songs covered page, if I mention that this is the seventh and final song from this movie. In other words, “Badtameez” (1966) now joins the likes of “Junglee”(1961) and “Jaanwar” (1965). 🙂 that have all their song discussed in the blog.

Song-Dil ko na mere tadpaao (Badtameez)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Atif M)

dil ko na mere tadpaao
pyaar ko mat thukraao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
dil ko na mere tadpaao
pyaar ko mat thukraao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
hoye hoye hoye
dil ko na mere tadpaao

yoon na rahega har dam
husn hai aakhir faani
bandh ke kahaan rehta hai
dariya ka behta paani
yoon na rahega har dam
husn hai aakhir faani
bandh ke kahaan rehta hai
dariya ka behta paani
chaand se mat takraao
dharti pe waapas aao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
dil ko na mere tadpaao

chhodo chalan nafrat ka
rasm-e-mohabbat seekho
dil ko dhadak lene do
pyaar ki aadat seekho
chhodo chalan nafrat ka
rasm-e-mohabbat seekho
dil ko dhadak lene do
pyaar ki aadat seekho
dil jo kisi ka churaao
dard ko bhi apnaao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
haye haye haye
dil ko na mere tadpaao

pyaar ki daulat le kar
laut jo hum jaayenge
laakh bulaao phir tum
mud ke nahi aayenge
pyaar ki daulat le kar
laut jo hum jaayenge
laakh bulaao phir tum
mud ke nahi aayenge
phir woh jhalak dikhlaao
aankhon se dil mein samaao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
dil ko na mere tadpaao
pyaar ko mat thukraao
ab to hamaare ho jaao
hoye hoye hoye
dil ko na mere tadpaao
hmm hmm hmm
hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye
la la la la la la
la la la la la la

Dear Atul,
Very encouraging and motivational statistics.
Last week I was at the Konark Sun Temple which had been constructed in the shape of a chariot drawn by 7 horses – 3 on each side with one horse leading the chariot. In this blog you are leading the chariot of Hindi films and non-film music supported by contributors including the commentators on the blog.
Congratulations to you for being a catalyst in achieving this position which to my mind is unique and difficult to replicate for other bloggers.

Atulji,
This is surely the moment of pride for you and all of us. After the slog for the blog; the toil taking toll on our day to day routine; but after this accolades the perseverance, tenacity, diligence and pugnacity put in seems all worthwhile and meaningful. You can really stretch yourselves today and enjoy the New Year along with all of us. I take this opportunity to wish all our diwanes A MORE HAPPY MUSICAL NEW YEAR.

Atul ji, and all friends on the blog

Really heartening to see this blog report.

I just did a quick calculation on the data for the busiest day indicated. 8777 visitors on a single day averages out to one visitor every 10 seconds.
And then, for the overall annual average, we have 4,670 visitors per day. And that computes to one visitor every 20 seconds, ALL AROUND THE YEAR.

Wow and wow.

And I repeat yet one more time.

ye hasta huaa carvaan zindagi ka
na poochho chala hai kidhar
tamanna hai ye saath chalte rahen hum
na beete kabhi ye safar

Congratulatons to us all.

Yes, thanks for the wonderful reminder, of this song.

In this song, Shammi Kapoor is putting up a fake act of being blind. In reality he is not, and is just trying to gain some sympathy from his lady love, Sadhna, who so far in the film has been despising him. Just a little before this scene, there is a party in which Sadhna and Rajendranath conspire to make Shammi Kapoor tipsy by giving him laddoos laced with intoxicants. Shammi Kapoor gets to know of this plan, and pretends to have consumed the laddoos, but actually he does not. But he acts like drunk in front of Sadhna’s father. In the exchage that happens, he offers the laddoo he is carrying in his pocket, to Sadhna’s father. Sadhna realizes that she is now in a fix, and in a moment of impulse, she hits Shammi Kapoor with a glass bottle. He falls down, somewhat hurt. Someone in the crowd mentions that he could lose his eyesight with such a hit. He latches on to the idea, and starts acting blind. Sadhna’s father brings him home to look after him. That is where this song is enacted. Shammi Kapoor knows that he is with Sadhna, but he pretends as if he does not know, and tells a sob story about his love for her.

Very soon after this song,he is exposed and caught, and marched out of the house. But by that time, the impact of love is already made. 🙂

What a wonderful way to look back at the year gone by. You can be SO proud of this blog, Atul. What started as just your song-a-day post on the net has now become spread all around the world – with views from 199 countries in 2012!!! WOW!!!

As you might have noticed, I haven’t been very regular here the last couple of months. Even this week, I’ve been completely occupied with family, hardly been online.

But you know that this blog has a special place in my heart. And that’s not just because of the songs – it’s also because of the regulars here.

Thanks so much for bringing us all together here, Atul.

Wish you, our other regulars here – and all visitors of this blog – a very happy 2013.

What mind boggling statistics Atul Ji! Kudos, this blog as we keep saying is the best in the world :). All the very best for the years to come Atul Ji.

And to add to the statistics, this also happens to be a Yippeeee!! moment. Badtameez (1966) joins the ranks of movies where all songs from the movie have been discussed on this blog. And a Yippeeee!! moment for a Shammi Kapoor movie is even more special :D. Thank you Atul Ji.
