Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With 10,400 songs already posted on this blog, we are still at just about 20% of the songs from the first five decades. And further, just about 11 or 12 % if one considers all the films from all the decades from 1931 to the present. There is a whopping number of songs that are still waiting out there to be posted. That is quite a number and it shall keep this team (of all quiet people 😉 ) busy for quite a while.

The songs that are still pending, fall into two categories. One is the group of songs that are obscure and rarely heard, now or even before, in our living years. And the second group is the one that have been heard and the mind is familiar with them. The first group of songs is an effort of perseverance and searching.

The second group can be further subdivided into two categories. One is the group of songs that have been very popular, and their availability is very easy as they continue to be republished in selections and are played often on the radio waves even today. The second sub group is of the songs that have also been popular, but did not have the staying power, i.e. their presence slowly dissipated from the collective memory for various reasons – unreleased films, B/C grade films, underrated and less preferred artists and music directors etc. The first sub group is a set of songs that is easily accessible.

The second sub group can be further subdivided into two categories. One is the group of songs that have been made more accessible through the diligent efforts of music lovers and they keep appearing with a regular frequency on the internet space. The second sub group is of the songs that are part of the active memory channels, but have been unheard for ages, as their availability and access has become progressively more arduous over the years. The first sub-sub group is a set of songs that keep surfacing in the memory, and then with some effort, one has been able to trace them and revive the sound.

The second sub-sub group can be further subdivided into two categories. One is the group of songs that have become available through the efforts of individual music lovers, and they are posted on our blog. The second sub-sub-sub group is of the songs that continue to tickle the memory threads, continue to be hard to trace, and have not yet appeared on our blog.

With this post, I am initiating a series that tackles these memory ticklers that form the second sub-sub-sub group of songs. These are songs that, once upon a time, two three decades ago, were relatively frequently featured in the farmaishi and other programs on the radio. With the waning of radio listening as a popular medium, the sounds of these songs slowly faded from the listening space. Only those songs that have the staying capacity as part of continued publication in various selections as preferred choices over the decades, remain the ones that are continuously available. The other songs, although they flip on once in a while in the mind’s radio, but are otherwise almost unheard in the physical domain.

I have compiled a short list of such songs that I have been able to trace, and will be posting them in this series. For me, these are memory ticklers that I have been searching for some time now, some years actually. With some luck, I have been able to trace them with the help of many collector friends, some with such huge collections that we are not even sure what all is actually existing in their treasury.

I initiate this series with this attractive piece from the 1967 film ‘Sab Ka Ustad’. And there is a special reason for bringing up this for posting today. I will come to that shortly. Before that, about this song. This is one of those numbers that occasionally plop up from the depths of memory, and start to play in the mind. For the reason that way back then, in the radio listening days, this song was popular and has stuck to the memory, simply on account of the quality of words and the music. As my search started some time back for this song, I realized that I have the film in my collection. So I avidly pulled it out and played it.

Bad luck sometimes plays such strong hands that one is left helpless. The disc version does not have the complete song. I was aghast. How could this be? Such a lovely song, and just one paragraph available in the “official” release of the video. I checked and rechecked within my circle of friends but none had any version other than the disc made available in the market. The song was not available on the internet. After some diligent searching, that remained result-less for many months, I am able to now locate a recent upload (as recent as two weeks ago), but which is simply the version from the disc, containing just the one stanza. I could see references to the vinyl records being discussed on online forums, but the song itself was available nowhere. Unless the Film Archives in Pune have an original celluloid set, and they make it publicly available, the video of this song is now practically lost for good.

As I looked for the audio version from the vinyl records, I eventually got confirmation from my collector friend in Delhi, Zafar Bhai, that he has the 78 rpm set from this film. He then proceeded to make an audio CD copy from the records and shared it with me. Today, I am uploading the complete audio version of this song, to make way for this post.

Another very quirky, but wholly expected thing I encountered on the internet. As I was searching for this song, I find that some sites have uploaded the lyrics of the partial version. And the same have been absolutely mindlessly copied by dozens of sites, from someone’s original upload. And including the wrong transliteration spellings of Hindi words. The entire internet is chock full of incomplete and erroneous lyrics for this song, all mindlessly copied, all carrying the same mistakes. It is so obvious that the video is incomplete. It is so obvious that the lyrics are incomplete. In their thoughtless copy-paste endeavors, no one has even spend half a minute to insert a bracketed comment to say that part of lyrics is missing. This speaks of the quality of the minds behind these websites, and also of the quality of interest they have in this music. It is simply deplorable.

‘Sab Ka Ustad’ is the regular ‘Sheikh Mukhtar’ genre fare that have punctuated the decades of 1950s and 60s very regularly. Produced under the banner of RM Arts Production, it is directed by R Thakar. The cast of actors includes Kumkum, Sujit Kumar, Anwar Hussain, Maruti, Meenakshi, Shekhar, Madhumati, Lalita Kumari, and Helen amongst others. The seven songs listed for this film are from the pen of Asad Bhopali. And the music – a delightful melody from the mind of that inimitable genius – Ganesh. Our dear Arun ji has recently done a somewhat detailed write upon this prodigious music director here.

The song is filmed as a dance performance at a wedding – the wedding of Kumkum with Sujit Kumar. One can very briefly see Sheikh Mukhtar and Maruti in the clip. As for the dancers, I request other knowledgeable readers to help with the identification.

Now coming to the other important reason for bringing up this post today. Some may have guessed by the title of the song itself. Yes, it is the birthday today of Mastermind, our chief of worldwide field operations ;). And this song goes online today, for him. Happy Birthday Raja ji.

Listen and enjoy.

Lyrics

raja aana hamaare bangle pe
raja aana hamaare bangle pe
kahin dhokhe se jaana na sauten ke dwaar
kahin dhokhe se jaana na sauten ke dwaar
raja aana hamaare bangle pe
raja aana hamaare bangle pe

aankhon hi aankhon mein hongin do batiyaan
aankhon hi aankhon mein hongin do batiyaan
zulfon ki chhainyaan mein beetengi ratiyaan
aate jaate na koi tujhe dekhe
chal na dena hamaara dil le ke

jalne waalon se
jalne waalon se rehna zaraa hoshiyaar
raja aana
balma aana
sajnaa aana
hamaare bangle pe
raja aana hamaare bangle pe

phoolon ki chaadar pe tujhko bithaaungi
phoolon ki chadar pe tujhko bithaaungi
resham si baahon ke takiye lagaaungi
tera nazron se jiyaa bhar doongi
tujh pe waari jawaani kar doongi

galey daaloongi
galey daaloongi main kachchi kaliyon ke haar
raja aana
balma aana
sajnaa aana
hamaare bangle pe
raja aana hamaare bangle pe
kahin dhokhe se jaana na sauten ke dwaar
kahin dhokhe se jaana na sauten ke dwaar
raja aana hamaare bangle pe
raja aana hamaare bangle pe

————————————————-
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे
कहीं धोखे से जाना ना सौतन के द्वार
कहीं धोखे से जाना ना सौतन के द्वार
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे

आँखों ही आँखों में होंगी दो बतियाँ
आँखों ही आँखों में होंगी दो बतियाँ
ज़ुल्फों की छंईयां में बीतेंगी रतियाँ
आते जाते ना कोई तुझे देखे
चल ना देना हमारा दिल ले के

जलने वालों से
जलने वालों से रहना ज़रा होशियार
राजा आना
बलमा आना
सजना आजा
हमारे बंगले पे
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे

फूलों की चादर पे तुझको बिठाऊँगी
फूलों की चादर पे तुझको बिठाऊँगी
रेशम सी बाहों के तकिये लगाऊँगी
तेरा नज़रों से जिया भर दूँगी
तुझ पे वारी जवानी कर दूँगी

गले डालूँगी
गले डालूँगी मैं कच्ची कलियाँ के हार
राजा आना
बलमा आना
सजना आजा
हमारे बंगले पे
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे
कहीं धोखे से जाना ना सौतन के द्वार
कहीं धोखे से जाना ना सौतन के द्वार
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे
राजा आना हमारे बंगले पे

Thank you SO much, Sudhirji, for posting this song on my birthday. Very thoughtful of you – and as usual, a lovely post. Enjoyed the way you have dissected various categories of songs into sub-(sub-(sub-categories)). 🙂

I’ve never heard this particular song before – listened to it for the first time today. Very pleasant, hummable tune – typical Ganesh. Now I have another “raja” song to listen to. 🙂

Btw, like Nitinji has said, aap hi hain sab ke ustaad. Hum sab to shagird hain. 🙂
