Most people think that life is like a limited overs cricket match where one has just one innings which ends when one retires from his job. But in reality one still has a long enough life ahead of him/ her. Instead of retiring, one can re-tire one’s wheels, take a fresh guard and begin a new innings, which may be quite glorious and memorable.

When we look at Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaaedia, we find someone who is showing the full range of his abilities in his second innings, after playing a traditional knock in his first innings.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh declared his first innings closed in 2007. After a break, he decided to pursue something that he loves doing, viz savouring old Hindi movies and their music. He learnt how to operate a computer and how to browse internet and then took a plunge into the world of internet, surfing HFM sites in order to listen to HFM.

He had been active on internet for a while before he discovered this song blog. The first comment that he made on this blog was on an English song written by an English poet ! The song was In the world’s broad field of battle (Duniyaa Naa Maane)(1937) which was sung by Shanta Apte.

Here is the first comment of Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh in the blog made on 18 january 2011 :

In the month of July 2009,I started operating Laptop primarily to enjoy old movie songs(at the age of 66 yrs.).I accidentally came across your site and now I feel that all my efforts are rewarded. I feel you are doing a great service to music lovers. I am overwhelmed by your dedication to your work.

This particular song has rightly been appreciated by you, but at that time when this movie was released, hardly anybody appreciated it.
I reenjoyed it.

He soon began to make his presence felt in the blog by offering hard to find information about obscure movies. He explained that he had a passion for watching movies since his childhood (which happened to be 1940s) and he would note down the details of all the movies watched by him in diaries and note books and they he would jealously guard and preserve them.

Though quite a few of these valuable possessions have been lost with time, he still possesses enough of them to be able to keep filling voids in our information by referring to his painstakingly prepared notes. He would also buy lots and lots of books on HFM in many languages, viz English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati… etc. Highly unreliable sources report that he may be having HFM books written in Swahili and Santhali as well. 🙂

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh was born and brought up in the Nizam era Hyderabad. He had a happy childhood growing up in a joint family with lots of cousins. His father was a freedom fighter and he, alongwith his family had to flee Hyderabad to avoid getting arrested. That took Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh alongwith his family to Varanasi and he spend a few years in that place as well.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh has some interesting experiences of watching movies in Hyderabad. There used to be women only sections in movie halls where only women and children were allowed. It was fun to watch the reactions of women to the suffering of the heroine. Equally priceless was the experience of watching religious, mythological and B grade action movies in the company of low brow movie goers in run down movie halls.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh has a strong grooming in topics like religion, mythology, movies etc and he can write authoratitively on these topics.

He worked as a marketing man for much of his career till his retirement. His professional career took him to various places and helped him expand his knowledge and expertise in various fields that much more.

He began in the blog as a commentor, which were full of invaluable information about movies and artists that were often not available online. His comments have often helped rewrite the identity of artists pertaining to a few movies and songs. For instance, the identity of the singer of Dilli se aaya bhai Tingu (Ek Thi Ladki) was not known (HFGK contains a blank against the name of the singer). Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh’s tireless investigation in this matter has now helped establish the fact that this song is sung by Vinita Amladi (later known as Binota Chakraborty after her marriage). In another example, lyricist of the sole song of “Trishaagni” (1988), viz. Aisa lagey kahin door se is not mentioned anywhere. On my request, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh dug up information about the lyricist from this movie’s director Nabendu Ghosh’s autobography where it is mentioned that this song was written by him !

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh later turned a guest writer to the blog as well. And he has already written over three hundred well researched articles containing rare and invaluable information in them. He has written articles in several series, such as (i) MD singing for another MD, (ii) Songs by non singers, (iii)NFS (iv)Bhajans from 1950s (v) Songs from 1940s (vi) Duet songs (vi) Debut songs of artists etc.

In addition, one he undertook a massive project to identify movies that were on the verge of having all their songs covered in the blog. This project, which took him nearly three weeks enabled us to cover all the songs of a movie in a more systematic and convenient manner. This initiative led to the idea of getting all songs of movies covered in the blog. This had two side effects in the blog. One was the introduction of a page that lists all the movies that have all their songs covered, and second was the celebration that went “YIPPEEE..”. 🙂

Another page in the blog, viz “Anniversary” page also drew its inspiration from the monthly list of anniversaries that he would send me regularly.

He is acquainted with many HFM lovers through comments in blogs, through e mail as well as through Facebook. He has met with quite a few of them in person as well.

He has met with a few film personalities as well as their close relatives. For instance, he met Chitragupta as part of “Ladkiwaale” side when Chitragupta was seeking to find an alliance for his son. He met the relatives of Bhudo Advani and Parshuram and got inside information about the lives of these forgotten artists and wrote guest articles about them in Memsaab’s blog.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh has written articles in several blogs. We are extremely privileged that his most preferred blog is this blog where he has already completed a triple century of his articles and is still going strong.

He, through his articles has tried to clarify matters regarding “same name confusion” that is prevailing among fans on internet. For example, there are different artists or movies with the same name and fans have been making incorrect identification thanks to misleading information available online. His researches have now established that many of the movies on 1940s and 1950s had another Shashi Kapoor in them who was different from the son of Prithviraj Kapoor. He has likewise helped establish that a different Raj Kumar has worked in a few movies that have erroneously been attributed to the famous “Jaani” Raj Kumar for long.

It was one of his farmaishes that enabled us to discover a Kishore Kumar song(In haathon se sabki gaadi chal rahi hai (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi) ) which was forgotten because it was excluded from the movie “Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi” (1958).

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh is settled in Mumbai and he has a “bhara poora” family consisting of children, grandchildren, great grandchildren etc and he has his hands full playing the family patriarch who is much in demand for giving his blessings to youngsters on various family get together occasions.

Though a senior citizen, he addresses everyone, even youngsters with a “ji”. One cannot imagine how much difference this small suffix makes on the addressee. I too have been conditioned to address people (younger ones as well as menial workers) as “aap” and it helps a lot in getting favourable response from them.

Though he mostly mainly discusses old HFM, he has an open mind and he often says that “not all songs created before 70s are necessarily good and not all music created after 70s are necessarily bad.

Though he needs no introduction, it gives me great pleasure to present this introduction of Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved in house encyclopaedia, as part of our 10,000th post celebration.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Hamaara Sansaar” (1945). This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.


Song-Kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye ja raha hai (Hamaara Sansaar)(1945) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye jaa raha hai
kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye jaa raha hai
kaun man pe mere chhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun man pe mere chhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye jaa raha hai

kaun barkha ki kaali kaali raaton mein
kaun barkha ki kaali kaali raaton mein
banke saaya chal raha hai saanson mein
banke saaya chal raha hai saanson mein
kaun deepak bankar raah dikhla raha hai
kaun man pe mere chhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye jaa raha hai

koi saathhi na thha
koi meet na thhaa
koi saathhi na thha
koi meet na thhaa
mere sooni beena pe koi geet na thha
mere sooni beena pe koi geet na thha
kaun meethhe suron se ye gaaye jaaye jaa raha hai
kaun meethhe suron se ye gaaye jaaye jaa raha hai
kaun man ko mere lubhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun man ko mere lubhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun man pe mere chhaaye jaa raha hai
kaun jeewan mein mere samaaye jaa raha hai

I have come across and interacted with very knowledgeable persons in their respective specialised fields from college days, in work situations and in social gatherings. What I have noticed that in a majority of cases, they display the streak of excessive pride, sometime even arrogance. Some of them do not even share their knowledge to keep them in some kind of a ‘exclusive club’. In my view, when knowledge is shared with humility, it become akin to God’s gift for the receivers. Shri Arumkumar Deshmukh is one of the rare among the knowledgeable persons who has been sharing his specialised knowledge about Hindi films and Hindi film songs with humility.

I also regard him among a few other regulars as a ‘conscience keeper’ and ‘auditor’ of this Blog.

I wish more strength to his elbow.

Kamath-ji,
It is true that some of the stalwart collectors, do not part with what they consider their exclusive knowledge and rare songs in particular.
One famous collector and often presenter of programs (I will not disclose the name – but many will guess) had invited me and some old films ‘rasiyas’ to his home. He would play some 78 RPM records but invariably stop them halfway, as he was suspicious that someone might be carrying a small cassette recorder in pocket. !!
Thanks to AD for sharing his wealth with every interested persons.
I, too, having a huge collection of Geet, Gazals, and old film songs,
is open to share them with anyone interested.

I have talked to Arunji on the phone, but your detail introduction made me feel like “I already met Arunji”. Arunji is our encyclopedia and I have enjoyed all his series. The amount of work he does to write all possible known fact about a song is amazing!!! Any query about a song/artist/MD/lyricist/producer/director/movie will always be answered by Arunji. Kisi ko bhi naraz nahi karte.
Thank you Arunji for keeping all of us integrated with the HFM and this blog too. 🙂

Ah, very happy to read this intro of Arunji.

From the time Arunji started commenting/posting on the blog, it has gone to a different level altogether. Not for nothing do we call him our inhouse encyclopaedia. 🙂 I am always amazed at how he knows the smallest of details about a movie, an actor, director, producer, even if they are obscure otherwise. And he has full storylines of so many obscure movies, it is just amazing. Thanks to his notebooks/diaries, no doubt. 🙂

Inspite of being so knowledgeable (not just about this but on other things too), Arunji has always been very approachable and ever-helpful. I’ve often posed him questions about some topic or the other, and he has always responded.

Once I asked Arunji something – he didn’t have an immediate answer. I forgot about it. Much later (maybe a year or so), he sent me an e-mail with the answer. I was stunned. But that’s our Arunji.

Another thing I like about Arunji is that he doesn’t have an otherwise fairly common attitude of “hamare zamaane mein sab achha tha, ab sab bekaar hai”. 🙂 He appreciates good in all generations. As he says, even in today’s generation, there is some good music being produced.

There’s a lot to learn from Arunji. Not just about music – but about life in general. If I may say so (and I mean it with the utmost respect), he is like the Bhishma pitamah of our blog. I hope you don’t mind my saying so, Arunji. 🙂 It is not about age, it is about your wisdom. 🙂
