It has been raining fairly much all day yesterday. It was raining when I woke up today morning. Seemed like a good pleasant day starting. The weather in Delhi had been humid and windless for past two three days. Yesterday was a welcome break and today is a day with brightness that comes after rain. With nothing particular for reference, the mind had been humming the lines since I woke up.

barsaat mein
humse miley tum sajan
tumse miley hum
barsaat mein


A little later as I opened up my email box, there I found a message from Mahesh ji. He has been very regular with reminders of anniversaries for past some weeks. His message says that it is the birth anniversary of Shailendra today. The two things connected and I was prompted to do this post.

I remembered reading in Shailendra’s biography, that this song was created when it was raining heavily in Bombay. It was stormy. The city was without electric power for a couple of days. Shailendra had penned this song and was eager to meet Raj Kapoor to show him his first creation for films. He had to wait three days on account of rains and power failure before he was able to make way from his railway quarter in Parel to Raj Kapoor’s office in Mahalaxmi. That is the start of his journey in the world of Hindi cinema.

The story of how the two met for the first time, is very interesting in itself. Shailendra had come to Bombay in 1947, as a clerk employed with the Indian Railways. Reading about his early years, one finds that was a revolutionary of thought, and his poetry was plucky and daring. During the years of his school and college education, he made in depth studies of the contemporary poets like Sumitra Nandan Pant, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Jai Shankar Prasad, Upadhyay Singh ‘Hariaudh’ etc. and also of the poets from ages past like Ratnakar, Bihari Lal Chaubey, Malik Mohammed Jayasi etc. As a young man he participated in the Quit India movement and spent some time in jail also.

After reaching Bombay, true to his spirits, his inclinations found way into the IPTA (Indian Peoples Theatre Association) movement. At one of the meetings, his emotions and feelings about the disastrous partition of the nation and the ensuing human tragedy came out in the fiery poem ‘Jalta Hai Punjab’. Raj Kapoor was present in the audience and he was verily impressed by this young and fiercely passionate poet. At that time, his debut venture ‘Aag’ was on the studio floors and he was frantically searching for a song for the climax of this film. He sensed the blaze in the poem recited by this young poet and he knew where to look now for his climax song. Raj Kapoor met him after the program, and offered him a proposal for writing songs for ‘Aag’. The first response was a decisive and flat ‘No’.

The reason behind his emphatic refusal was the general sentiment that songs in films were a pedestrian variety of poetry and he did not want to associate himself with that standard. Raj Kapoor retreated, but left the proposal open, requesting Shailendra to approach him, whenever he felt ready to work together.

‘Aag’ was completed and released. Now ‘Barsaat’ was on the sets, and the songs were being progressively created. Abruptly one day, Raj Kapoor was informed that a poet by name Shailendra has come to see him. They met, and without any preamble, Shailendra, in a fit of annoyed irritation, most likely at himself, announced that he needed some money due to domestic exigencies and he was ready to write for Raj’s films. The contract with RK Films was formalized the same day, Raj asked him to write songs for a couple of situations in the film.

And thus was born the ‘Barsaat Mein’ poetry, that had to wait three days, after creation, to be presented to Raj Kapoor. Interesting that the delay was on account of rain itself.

A poet of depth and deep sensitivities, his words rouse the mind, and take you down the paths of expressions that are bold, that touch the threads of sorrow very frankly. His poetry is always about the concern for the human individual and the imbalanced social order. Lines from his poems resound in the mind and raise goose pimples on the flesh.

. . .
us paar kisi se milne ka iqraar nahin
mujhse kisi ko pyar nahin
duniya mein tere teer ka
yaa taqdeer ka maara hoon
awaara hoon. . .

mann ki kitaab se tum
mera naam hi mitaa dena
gun to na thaa koi bhi
avgun mere bhulaa dena
mujhe aaj ki vidaa kaa
mar ke bhi rehta intezaar

. . .
tu naa aaye to kyaa
bhool jaaye to kyaa
pyaar karke bhulaana ha aaya hamen
. . .
. . .
meri aankhon mein rahe
kaun jo mujhse kahe
maine dil tujhko diya. . .

. . .
ye poorab hai poorab waale
har jaan ki qeemat jaante hain
. . .
. . .
matlab ke liye andhe ho kar
roti ko nahin pooja hamne

bhagat singh is baar naa lena kaayaa bharatwaasi ki
dehbhakti ke liye aaj bhi sazaa milegi phaansi ki
yadi janta ki baat karoge tum gaddaar kehlaayoge
bamb shamb ki chhodo, bhaashan dogey pakde jaaoge

(These above lines from a non-film poem).

And in his own words, these are the lines that best describe his thought process and his works.

dil ka haal sune dil waala
seedhi si baat naa mirch masaala
keh ke rahega kehne waala

But of course, the poet in him is very versatile, to the hilt. If he wrote “Barsaat Mein” for his debut film, he also wrote for the same film a song that belies all other expectations – “Patli Qamar Hai, Tirchhi Nazar Hai” . The song that I present today is from the 1962 film ‘Naughty Boy’. The music is by Sachin Da, and the singing voices are those of Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey. On screen, the song is performed by Kalpana, a very young and comely looking Kalpana. It seems that this must be her very first film that was shot, although the film ‘Professor’ from the same year is credited as her debut film. Clearly, she appears much slimmer in this vide clip, than she does in ‘Professor’.

Also, on screen, the leading associate dancer is very familiar. Is she Edwina? I request other knowledgeable readers to please help to confirm or correct this suggested identification.

As always, lesser known films carrying wonderful songs that are obscured with the dust of unfamiliarity. This song is one such gem. Listen and enjoy.

pyaar ne jabse jaadu phera aa
jaag ke karoon main savera aa
aankhon mein naache chhab teri ho
saanson mein rahe gham tera

aaj main phir dil haara
hooo

le gaye chain
laage tadpaane

ho gayi shaam

laakh manaaun nahin maane
nahin maane
nahin maane
ho oo oo
ho gayi shaam
dil badnaam
leta jaaye tera naam
laakh manaaun nahin maane
nahin maane

हो ओ ओ
हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने
हो ओ ओ ओ
हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने
हो

हो
हो गई शाम

प्यार ने जबसे जादू फेरा हो
जाग के करूँ मैं सवेरा हो
आँखों में नाचे छब तेरी हो
साँसों में रहे ग़म तेरा
हो ओ
पूछें लोग
कैसा रोग
दुनिया मारे ताने

हॅप्पी हो
हॅप्पी हो
हॅप्पी हॅप्पी हॅप्पी
हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने
हो ओ ओ ओ
हो गई शाम

हाय ना दुनिया का मेला
तेरे बिना हूँ मैं अकेला
क्या मैं बताऊँ कहां कहाँ
गर्दिश ने मुझको ढकेला
हो ओ
तुम आ जाओ
लौटा लाओ
वो गुजरे जमाने

हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने
हो
हो
हो
हो गई शाम

प्यार का रंगीन ये नज़ारा
हो साथ तुम्हारा प्यारा प्यारा
हो ओ ओ
सपना सुहाना मेरे आगे
आज मैं फिर दिल हारा

ये दो नैन
ले गए चैन
लागे तड़पाने

हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने
हो ओ ओ
हो गई शाम
दिल बदनाम
लेता जाये तेरा नाम
लाख मनाऊँ नहीं माने
नहीं माने
नहीं माने

The list showing names of contemporary poets which Shailendra made in depth studies including Sumitra Nandan Pant, ……….Upadhyay Singh ‘Hariaudh’ etc. The correct name is “Ayodhya Prasad ‘Hariaundh’ and not Upadhyay Singh ‘Hariaudh’.

My humble tributes to Shailendra for his great contribution to Hindi cinema, not only lyrics but also a lyrical fantasy, TEESRI KASAM.
I recall, the greatest complement he received from a contemporary poet, Sahir Ludhyanvi, who refused his Best Lyricist trophy of Filmfare in 1963, saying “Mat ro Mata” from BANDINI was much superior to his “Jo vada kiya hai” from TAJ MAHAL.
Shailendra wrote some very beautiful songs for S D Burman, “Khoya khoya chaand”, readily comes to mind.

My, my! I am hearing this song after a very very long time gap!
