The Many Colors of Love #5 – Blossoming Emotions of Adolescence
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so wrote the scribe. . .

“Reshma Jawaan Ho Gayee, Haaye Reshma Jawaan Ho Gayee”
(‘Mom Ki Gudiya’, 1973)

Ah, good to be back, and sincere apologies to all who may be wondering after all why does he start something and then seem to disappear. In simple words, not trying to make it sound like an excuse – personal bandwidth constraints and some higher priority write ups that must be done. This promised series took a back seat for many reasons. After having a start in late May, so far just four episodes appeared in the series, and then came a long hiatus. But now, getting back to it again. It needs to be put in words. For more than one reasons.

The past four editions touched upon these topics; the first one talked about the mystery of love in “Mohabbat Hai Kya Cheez”; the second dwelt upon the feelings and symptoms that tell you that the emotions of love are at hand, in “Aata Hai Dil Pe Pyaar Kyun”; the third one deliberated the fledgling puppy love of the pre-adolescent years with “Ye Baat Kitni Sach Hai”; and the fourth one talked about the phenomena of romance in the golden years with the song “Naana Se Kehti Thi Naani Hamaari”.

This 5th episode takes a look at the passage of years from adolescence to youth, and the accompanying emotions, that reign the mind and the spirit, many a times to the exclusions of every other emotion.

The passage of years from childhood to youth is one of the most enchanting. Transformations occur in the physical as well as in the in the emotional makeup of an individual. A life that thus far has been sheltered and nurtured with the help of pre defined relationships. These relationships follow from the existence itself. The basis of these are the beliefs that need no evidence, no proof. And thus, it is a set of relationships that are taken for granted, for the duration of life. No effort is made by the person, and yet this paraphernalia exists around us that is both a security as well as the provider of all that we need.

Then comes a time when the mind steps up and wants to peep out beyond the circles of belief, security and provisions – for there is awakened inside and urge to define an identity. This urge desires to define an identity that is beyond the zones of comfort in the circles of security where the childhood has flourished. The urge for the identity seeks a definition beyond childhood, beyond adolescence, beyond the relationships that are a given in life. And the blossoming innocent associations of a naïve heart are probably the first expressions of this urge.

Going beyond the puppy love of the childhood years, now the matters of heart take on a more serious color. No matter that the experiences of this young heart are still raw and rare. But the self creates an aura of an all knowing importance around itself, and defines the rules for discerning priorities and importance. It starts to pay more attention to the tiny flutters of the heart, and the rush of emotions – and in the mind, amongst many other flights of self important fancies, the seminal emotion of first love starts to take root. And the heart now seeks the company and acknowledgements of someone special. First love is born.

The annals of Hindi films and film songs are replete with musical creations that tell about this coming of age phenomena, and express the emotions as the sheltered existence of childhood gives way to the spring-in-the step youth that seeks the new experimentation. This song, a wonderful duet between Suraiya and Hameeda Banu, from a relatively unknown and obscure film from 1945 titled ‘Main Kya Karoon’. A film from the banner of Flora Films, Bombay, it is directed by Sudhir Sen. The music is orchestrated by Neenu Majumdar, and the poetry comes from the pens of DN Madhok and Rammurti. This particular song is written by DN Madhok. The star cast includes names like Shah Nawaz, Suraiya, Pahari Sanyal, Hansa Wadkar, Bikram Kapoor, E Bilimoria. One of the earliest films of Suraiya, probably from the time when her releases were still counted in single digits. Given the star cast, one can easily surmise that the one screen performance of this song is by Suraiya for sure, accompanied by another lady, likely Hansa Wadkar.

The song is a conversation of sharing between two friends. The first friend is expressing the arrival of the emotions of budding love in her heart for the first time, and indicates that someone special seems to have stirred the strings of her heart. The second friend wants to know who this person is, besides adding a word of caution to lookout for keeping a firm footing on the slippery slopes of youth that is blind with eagerness. Ah yes, an advise that seems all too familiar, and the scenario all too customary in the endless stories of love on the Hindi film screen – the young heart crooning and pining for love – “Ae Kaash Kisi Deewaane Ko Hum Se Bhi Mohabbat Ho Jaaye” and the friendly caution that is advised by friend – “Hai Waqt Abhi Taubaa Kar Lo, Allaah Museebat Ho Jaaye” (a wonderful Lata – Asha duet from 1966 film ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’).

Let this lovely duet play, and let play the familiar memories of the first love in life, when it seemed that the detractors and advisors are many, who want to deflect the young heart from the path of first flush of true love. Aah, but what do these ‘duniya waale’ know about true love. It is only the heart in love that does.

(NOTE: The online upload identifies the singer accompanying Suraiya as Rajkumari. However, checking from couple of other sources, including the Geet Kosh, the second singer is identified as Hameeda Banu.)

बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई

अंगड़ाई
तेरे दिल में किस ने ली बोल
अंगड़ाई
तेरे दिल में किस ने ली बोल
मो से भेद जिया के खोल
मो से भेद जिया के खोल

मैं ना जानु किस की अदा
मैं ना जानु किस की अदा
मेरे दिल को भायी
मेरे दिल को भायी
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई

देखो जी
बच बच के चलना
देखो जी
बच बच के चलना
कहीं ऐसे न फिसलना
कहीं ऐसे न फिसलना
अंधी है ये जवानी
अंधी है ये जवानी
इसे दे न कुछ दिखाई
इसे दे न कुछ दिखाई

दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
बचपन गया
जवानी आई
दिल में किसी ने ली अंगड़ाई
