On 30 january 2011, I received an e mail in my inbox. This contents of the email warmed the cockles of my heart and made my day. The e mail read

Hi Atul,

Wonderful site. A very useful & handy reference tool, too. I browse it regularly for my dose of golden oldies, rare gems, lyrics, song info or just to surprise myself. The days of yore studded with glittering jewels such as Radio Ceylon/SLBC & Vividh are sorely missed.

One thing that I notice & love about your blog is the painstaking indexing & categorisation of the content & the accuracy of material, esp. lyrics. Generally, the lyrics are free from errors, authentic and spelled brilliantly. Only a person of language can do such justice to transliterating hindi into english with admirable precision & exactness.

I’m sure you devote a considerable amount of time to build up and maintain this blog. As I do consult this blog from time to time, to repay the favour and as a token of my gratitude, I would like to offer my assistance in keeping this blog ticking over. What I can do for this blog is to submit a song’s lyrics & youtube link directly to you. After your approval & review, you may post it on to the blog alongwith your usual valuable & insightful comments.

Thank you indeed.

Atif.

N.B.: I am submitting a song below.


This brief and sweet e mail in fact changed the course of the blog from being a largely one man show to an online collaboration of likeminded individuals. It opened a new dimension for the blog and sowed the seeds of a new idea, viz that of song contribution by the regulars of the blog.

Atif M, with this email became the first lyrics contributor of this blog. His first lyrics submission was a song from “Woh Kaun Thhi” (1964), viz. Chhod kar tere pyaar ka daaman.

This new development was duly noticed by regulars like Lalitha and Memsaab who hoped that this would result in an increased output in the blog, which actually happened. Other contributors soon followed and before long, we had a dozen contributors each in lyrics as well as writeups department.

Atif M’s first few lyrics contributions were Madan Mohan compositions, but he soon diversified. When I look at the list of his over 440 lyrics in the blog, Shankar Jaikishan tops with 123, followed by Naushad with 77 and Ravi with 69. mDan Mohan is fourth with 27 and Chitragupta comes next with 24. In all, he has contributed musical gems created by 35 music directors in all.

Atif M is an old school music lover in his taste of HFM, who steadfastedly believes that the era of 1940s was the golden era, 1950s was the silver era and the decade of 1960s being the bronze era. 🙂 Most of his contributions are from these decades, but sometimes he has forayed into the “forbidden” era of 1970s as well. 🙂 He once sent me an R D Burman composition from 1970 which was written by S H Bihari and sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle- a foregotten gem that I had never heard before ! I found it such a stunning song that I posted it as the 900th Asha Bhonsle song in the blog.

Atif M has confined himself to lyrics contributions, but occasional e mail exchanges with him leave me in no doubt that he is a man of considerable literary skills, but he has chosen to keep this quality of him under wraps.

Atif M is also a statistician of HFM who can give you the full breakup of songs composed by his favourite music directors, like for instance Naushad. I recall that once he had given a well researched break up of all Naushad composition in his comments on an article on Naushad (in another blog).

Atif M has sent over four hundred lyrics to the blog so far. As can be expected, I would struggle to keep up with the deluge of lyrics contributions from several contributors. Atif M would very considerately sent me a list of songs by him that were not posted. That list would come very handy for me to clear the backlog.

As of now, there is hardly any backlog of songs contributed by him. So it was a tall order for me to look for an as yet unposted lyrics from him. I could find only one such song.

Here is that one remaining Atif M song on the occasion of the countdown to 10,000 songs for the blog. This song is from “Doli” (1969). This movie was produced by Hargobind Duggal and directed by Adhurti Subba Rao for Bahaar Films combines. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Babita, Prem Chopra, Nazima, Sulochana Latkar, Om Prakash, Nana Palsikar, Sunder, Kanhaiyalal, Pandharibai, Raj Mehra, Hari Shivdasani, Sulochana Chatterjee, Randhir, Shivraj, Shammi, Shyamlal, Praveen Paul, Ravikant, Baby Guddi, Narbada Shankar, Radheshyam, Darshan, Polson, Jagdish, Jerry, Nazir Kashmiri, Deenanath, Mirza, Gurnam Singh, Aziz, Birbal, Sanjeev Duggal, Johnny Whisky, Som Haksar etc in it.

This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song one of those rare songs which is picturised on Prem Chopra and Nazima. Babita later joins Nazima lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice.

PS-Now I realise, two months later that this song was the sixth and final song from the movie. So this movie has joined the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Aaj pila de saaqi (Doli)(1969) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics (Provided by Atif M)

aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se ae
aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se

aaj hai raat muraadon ki
kuchh rangeen iraadon ki
kar bhi de tasweer mukammil
chand adhoore waadon ki
aaj hai raat muraadon ki
kuchh rangeen iraadon ki
kar bhi de tasweer mukammil
chand adhoore waadon ki
aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se ae
aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se

sard hai mausam josh mein aa
lehra kar aaghosh mein aa
chhed ke naghma behoshi ka
yeh mat kehna hosh mein aa
sard hai mausam josh mein aa
lehra kar aaghosh mein aa
chhed ke naghma behoshi ka
yeh mat kehna hosh mein aa
aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se ae
aaj pila de saaqi apni
aankhon ke maikhaane se
honthon ke paimaane se

gesoo khule khule se hain
rangat udi udi si hai
ae meri hamraaz bata yeh
shokh sharaarat kis ki hai
gesoo khule khule se hain
rangat udi udi si hai
ae meri hamraaz bata yeh
shokh sharaarat kis ki hai
takraayi hain aankhen teri
raat kisi begaane se
ya apne parwaane se ae
takraayi hain aankhen teri
raat kisi begaane se ae
ya apne parwaane se

I got used to seeing the name Atif as the lyrics contributor to this blog but it is only now that I get to know much more about the person behind the name. He seems to be multi-faceted. And I tend to agree with his categorisation of 40s/50s/60s, although I’d consider 50s too to be gold-material. But yes, after 60s, music did change a lot.

Thanks for this intro, Atul. And I totally second what Atif says about the blog. 🙂
