Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations –47 (Song number 10001)
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The other day, I received a phone call from an unexpected quarter – Bhole and Chhote, the adopted ‘kids’ of Atul, lodging a sort of complaint against their Master that they have been neglected in his Blog for a long time.

‘Why don’t you have a one to one talk with your Master? You can send a SMS’- I said trying to avoid what was essentially an internal matter of the household.

‘He has been out of our home for a long time for office work and he is not picking up the mobile.’ Bhole retorted. I could hear a sound of a low barking,indicating a mild protest.

‘Obviously, with office work and the extra load of Blog work, he has no time to attend to your frivolous mobile calls or SMSs’ – I said thinking that my somewhat blunt reaction should ward off Bhole.

‘That is exactly our point. Don’t think that we are dumb. We keep track of the Blog on a daily basis and we know that a big celebration is going on for the last 10 days on the eve of the Blog attaining a milestone of 10000 songs’- It was now the turn of Chhote to vent his feeling.

‘I find that as a part of celebration of attaining 10000 songs in the Blog, all contributors to the Blog are being introduced. But so far, there is no introduction of us on the Blog on such a big occasion’-Bhole said with his voice choked with emotion.

‘Tell me as to why you both should be introduced in the Blog. What have you contributed to Blog?’- I said.

‘Oh my God’. You are one of the senior contributors to the Blog and yet you do not recognise our contributions. Look at the number of posts which our Master had written about us. Besides, there are 7 dog songs in the Blog’- Bhole protested with a long barking.

I retorted. ‘There is no need to bark. Those were not your contributions but written by your Master’.

‘But we were the inspiration and the subject of those posts. He would not have been able to write those posts had we not done most of our good deeds and a few of our bad deeds’. Both Bhole and Chhote said with a chuckle in their voices uttering the words ‘bad deed’ in low voice.

‘I also know as to how much trouble you have given to your Master. You made him search the whole day when both of you decided to leave home thinking that there were greener pastures outside’- I said thinking that this should make them somewhat defensive in their demand.

‘Oh! That happened only once. Are you not aware of the Hindi proverb ‘Subah ka bhula shaam ko ghar aa jaaye to usse bhoola nahin kehte’? We had realised our mistake and we have mend our ways thereafter’-Both Bhole and Chhote said in their defence.

‘Ok ok. I see some merit in your demand. I suggest you to approach Sudhir who is coordinating with your Master and other contributors in connection with the 10000 songs mark celebration of the Blog. I am sure he would consider your request sympathetically’. I said with a feeling that this should end the conversation with ‘thank you’.

‘Sudhir Ji is as busy as our Master and we don’t think that he would have time to listen to our demand. Bhole said with a frustration indicated by a long howling.

‘Why have you approached me? You could have approached any of other regulars of the Blog’-I said assuming that Bhole would think that I was shirking responsibility in meeting their demand and he would leave me alone.

‘Because we found that among the regular contributors, you have been the least active on the Blog for the last three months. So we thought that you have spare time to attend to our problems’-Bhole said with a triumph in his voice.

‘Ok. All I can promise you is that I will try my best to convince your Master to include a dog song in the Blog during the long celebration of attaining the milestone of 10000 songs’.

The phone conversation ended with ‘thank you’ followed by a long howling which sounded like murki in a thumri song.
————————————————————————–

The foregoing ‘conversations’ are all my imagination as I felt that in the celebration of Blog attaining a milestone, how we can forget Bhole and Chhote when they have been part and parcel of Blog for a long time. So here is a song ‘kaho kiski gali mein saari raat bitaai’ from the film HAM BHI INSAAN HAIN (1948). As per the video clip uploader, the song is sung by Shamshad Begum. But I am sure that this song is sung by Parvez Kapadia. The lyrics are written by Gopal Singh Nepali and composed by Manna Dey-H P Das. The film was produced under the banner of Maya Art Pictures and was directed by Phani Majumdar. The star cast included Dev Anand, Ramola, Amir Bano, Niharika etc.

Enjoy the song amidst a big celebration of 10000 songs on the Blog.

Lyrics

ghadi beet gayi

ghadi beet gayi
?? tu rasta dikhaayi
kaho kiski gali mein saari raat bitaayi
kaho kiski gali mein
o kiski gali mein saari raat bitaai
o kiski gali mein saari raat bitaai
ho paapi

ho paapi tujhe pyaar jataana na thha
pyaar jhoothaa jataa ke sataana na thha
o paapi tujhe pyaar jataana na thha
pyaar jhoothhaa jataa ke sataana na thha
pehle preet lagaa ke dil mein aag lagaayi
pehle preet lagaa ke dil mein aag lagaayi
kaho kiski gali mein

kaho kiski gali mein saari raat bitaayi
ho paapi

shaabaash

phoolon se saji thhi sejariya naram
phoolon se saji thhi sejariya naram
magar aane ko keh ke na aaye sanam
magar aane ko keh ke na aaye sanam
tujhe yaad na aayi
mujhe neend na aayi
tujhe yaad na aayi
mujhe neend na aayi
kaho kiski gali mein
kaho kiski gali mein
kaho kiski gali mein saari raat bitaayi
ho paapi
ho paapi
ho paapi
ho paapi

do din ke hamaari jawaani hai re
ro ro ke usse bhi ganwaani hai re
do din ke hamaari jawaani hai re
ro ro ke usse bhi ganwaani hai re
tujhse nain milaa ke maine rain ganwaayi
tujhse nain milaa ke maine rain ganwaayi
kaho kiski gali mein
kaho kiski gali mein
kaho kiski gali mein saari raat bitaai
ho paapi
ho paapi
ho paapi
ho paapi

Poor Bhole and Chhote. I am sure this conversation was not an imagination on your part, but some telepathic waves generated by them, admit it!

What a hilarious read.

Alas, I cannot listen to the song in the office as youtube is blocked, rightly so, or I would get no work done.

Happy 10001.

This is the Shagun song, for in India we never give anyone a round sum, but add 1 Re. to increase it’s value.

The celebration continues….

What a wonderful, fun write-up! This must be one of the funniest write-ups on the blog. Terrific imagination, Kamathji. 🙂

Indeed Bhole and Chhote are totally justified in having this grouse that they’ve been neglected of late. Thankfully, this has been set right now with this fantastic “dog” song. I can imagine them wagging their tails now, very happy.

So, with No. 10001, the journey continues. 🙂

Sadanandji,
How emotional of you! Loved your imagination and fun filled write up. Bhole and Chhote must have been happy that someone is thoughtful about them and has a courage to fight for their rights.
Thanks for the entertaining post.
