Ek patey ki baat bataaun

I grew up in a small village and went to a village school, where sometimes the classes were conducted outside and we used to sit on the ground.

Only the main office, the lab and the Principal’s office were housed in a permanent building.

Some classrooms were constructed of Bamboo structures having ‘khaprail’ (roop tiles) and ‘taat (bamboo mat) walls.

The main source of entertainment for the villagers were films which were screened in open field in the small colony where we lived in. On special occasions and during summer vacations, we also had touring movie exhibitors visiting us. From mid seventies onwards,. a projector was procured for the colony club and the big hall which happened to be the badminton playing hall and sometimes the ‘Ganpati festival hall’ also, was renovated to screen films on weekly basis.

Thus started the beautiful journey of the magic of Hindi films and as I grow I was easily attracted to it as all members in our family loved music and they actively participated in dramas and other cultural activities.

The first film Hindi song that I remember was ‘suhani raat dhal chuki, naa jaane tum kab aaogi’ from Dulaari.

We got to see many of the ‘black and white’ movies (some of those being gems from Hindi cinema). Procuring new releases was prohibitively expensive for the club to screen, and so the club mainly screened movies from sixties and also flop movies of the early seventies.

For watching the new releases we hadto visit the nearest city which was located 30 kms from our village, and that was mostly on bi-monthly basis or during summer vacations when we stayed at ‘my grandfather’s house’ in the city and went for watching movies with my youngest Uncle who was only 08 years older to me.

Amitabh Bachchan was the most popular hero those days then and his angry young man performances had caught the imagination of most school kids like me.

We would have dearly loved to watch the current hits of Amitabh Bachchan, but the Amitabh movies that we managed to watch in our village auditorium were flop Amitabh movies like Bansi-Birju, Pyaar ki Kahaani, Reshma aur Shera, Do Anjaane, Benaam, Faraar etc. I watched “Bandhe-Haath” when a touring talkie visited us.

One can imagine how we could have tolerated a mute Amitabh in ‘Reshma Aur Shera’.

One song from an Amitabh movie that I watched those days became embedded permanently in my memory. That song is the topic of discussion of this article.

This is the only song from this movie that I remember because this song was the most suitable song for my age at that time and its picturisation must have appealed to me (that is the only explanation I can come up with). It is a good song with simple lyrics by Anand Bakshi, beautifully rendered in the soulful voice of Rafi Saab and composed by Pancham Da.

Life was also so simple then. As rightly put up in these lines from this song

“Ye jeewan sangram nahin, Jeewan hai khel tamaasha”,

But now it is altogether different ….!

Until I took on the preparation of the lyrics of this song I was not aware that the the musical score of ‘Pyaar ki Kahaani’ was done by the great Pancham Da.

And the second thing that I came to know through Raja ji’s post on the song of this film ‘Koi aur duniya mein tumsa haseen hai’ was that ‘koi aur duniya mein’ and ‘ek khabar aayi’ were the popular songs from this film at that time.

Anyway, now, I do not remember the movie either. I only remember this song and the film’s name which are permanently hardwired in my RAM.

On the occasion of Amitabh Bachchan’s 71st birth anniversary (DOB 11 october 1942), here is this beautiful and yet simple song from “Pyaar Ki Kahaani” (1971), which is sung by Rafi and it is picturised on Amitabh Bachchan.

ek ke paas zyaada hai
aur ek ke paas jo kam hai
bhaant le ek baraabar
aapas mein toh phir kyaa gham hai
ek ke paas zyaada hai
aur ek ke paas jo kam hai
bhaant le ek baraabar
aapas mein toh phir kyaa gham hai
gairon ke aagey ae ae ae ae
gairon ke aagey

sabse achhi sabse sundar boli prem ki boli
ek pate ki baat bataaoon sun mere hamjoli
sabse achhi sabse sundar boli prem ki boli

Pyar ki kahani is a remake movie of famous black and white South Indian(either Telugu or Tamil)movie. Any one who know the name of original movie, please let me know the name of the movie. Whether that movie starcast is K.R.Vijaya and Shivaji Ganeshan ?? I am guessing …..

Hello Atulji, Harishbhai… Here are 3 songs of Mukesh for year 1947-1948 just I picked up them at a glance. . I noticed that Sudhirji has written in the song of Shabanam 1949 (Tu mahelomain Rehnewali Mukesh) that he requires more songs of Mukesh for year 1947-48.. If he needs please forward him. I do not have his email address. I will try to get more from my JEWELS..I do not have more information for the songs . Thank You .. Dadu Chicago..
