Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The hoof sounds of the returning horses sounded tired and beaten. It was hot and dusty. The sun beat down mercilessly on the sweaty gang members. The lonely tree provided some respite from the blazing heat. Lounging in his hammock tied to it, Mastermind lazily flicked the orangutan walking on his bare arm. The face of Kaalia appeared around the bend in the rocks.

“Kitne aadmi thhe”

“Sardaar, he he”

“Sardaar, das hazaar paanch sau”

Through the tobacco blackened teeth, he propelled a well aimed spit ball at the mountainside rocks. Two of them shattered into smithereens.

“Tera kya hoga kaalia. Itni sulagti dhoop mein bhi jhooth bolne ki aadat nahin gayi”

“Sardar, he he”

“Sardar, main ne aapka namak aur kaali mirch khaaya hai.”

“Kasam se jhooth nahin bolta.”

“Arre o Saamba”

“Suni is namak-mirch waale ki zubaan.”

“Abey, abhi tak to das hazaar paanch sau gaaane wo Raanchiwaale ke blog par bhi nahin hain.”

“Sardar, he he”

“Sardar, kal tak to nahin thhe, par aaj hain”

Quickly, he bent over and picked up his iPad, swiftly tapping and swiping his fingers on the dusty stained screen.

“He he”

“He he”

“Ye to aaj bach gaya. Aaj to sab ke sab bach gaye”

“Mogambo khush huaa”

😀 😀 😀

Ah yes, it turns out that Kaalia is telling the truth, and today, we have das hazaar paanch sau gaane on the Raanchiwaale ka blog. Sunaa hai ki celebration ke liye saare gang members ko jashan ka nyotaa diya gaya hai. Jashan ki tayyaari Gabbar ke bhai Jabbar Singh Rashtramukh Moochhwaala ki dekh rekh mein chaalu hai. Sab dacaiton ko Andhere raaston se ho kar Ramgarh pahunchana hai. Ye bhi suna hai ke Haylenbai Burmawaali ke khaas naach ka prabandh karne ki koshish jaari hai.

Well, humor apart, many congratulations to the entire team once again. On time, on target, notching up that so tangible half a thousand songs after the mega accomplishment just four short months ago. And I am reminded of another very rare song that was posted exactly two years earlier to the mega milestone – “Ye Kaafila Hai Pyaar Ka Chalta Hi Jaayega” . Yes, this is a labor of love that will keep rolling on and prospering. For there is so much music out there that still needs to be documented and presented.

For this 10,500th offering, I present the next in the series of memory ticklers, a song that is so dear, and at the same time so rare. I have not heard it for years since the radio listening days. It was only a few months back that I got the copy of the songs of the unreleased film ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’ (from sometimes in 1960s) from my collector friend, and got the satisfaction of hearing this song once again, after a long, long time.

Song writer Aziz Kaisi and music director Iqbal Qureshi have teamed up to create some very enduring and memorable songs in this film, that never got made. Aah, but the music – all I can say is, it is time to count the small blessings. Two songs from this film are already showcased here, and this is the third gem from the treasure to find its place here today.

And yes, we have another special reason also to post this song on this mega + half thousand milestone today. You see, this song is sung by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. OK, you might say, so then what? we have many Rafi – Asha duets already posted. Ah yes, you are right, we have many duets of this pair of singers already posted on the blog. Actually, before this post, there are exactly 399 duets of this pair posted. So this post becomes a very specific celebration – the 400th duet of Rafi Sb and Asha ji, to be posted here.

And as I was preparing for this post, a thought came to my mind. The thought was triggered by a comment by Nalin ji. Oh, forgot to mention that Nalin ji is in Delhi, since the 6th. As expected, we have been having many conversations and get togethers while he is here. And incidentally, Harmandir ji was also in Delhi for one day, during this time. Been a busy few days full of ongoing discussions. As you may know, Nalin ji is a film journalist and a historian, and he wrote a regular column titled ‘Off Track’ in Bombay’s Mid Day newspaper for more than two decades. He is now working to publish these articles in book form. He is planning three books, and the first of them could be published as early as Feb/Mar next year. A number of current discussions are reviews of the articles that are to appear in the book.

These discussions are throwing up real nuggets of information that are sometimes startling. Let me share one. You know about the song from film ‘Sehra’ – “Taqdeer Ka Fasaana Jaa Kar Kise Sunaayen” . I was very startled to find out that the original choice for the singer of this song was Mahendra Kapoor. V Shantaram had a special preference for him, and music director Ramlal was kind of overruled and forced to have this song recorded in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. So mark my comment, this song is originally recorded in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice. After the recording was done, Ramlal was not feeling good. In his opinion, this was a remarkable composition, and needed better merit and justice. He held a private audience with V Shantaram, and requested him to just try once a see what magic Rafi Sb’s voice could do to this composition. After much discussion, V Shantaram agreed, and the song was re-recorded in Rafi Sb’s voice. After the recording, there were no arguments, and clearly the more impressive version made it into the film.

No, no, I have not lost the thought that was triggered by Nalin ji’s comment. A comment from him sent me to the Geet Kosh, and I did a quick survey and comparison. Would you believe that the number of Rafi-Asha duets are double the number of Rafi-Lata duets, across all the years from mid 1940s to 1980. I was expecting some difference, but was not expecting the numbers to be double. Actually we were discussing the episode where Lata and Rafi did not sing together for some time, due to some differences. Nalin ji commented – “so who lost? For the producers and music directors, Lata was replaceable with Geeta, Asha, Suman and other singers, but for them Rafi’s voice was not replaceable. The controversy made Lata lose a lot in numbers and some very good quality compositions that she could have done wonders with”. On this thought, it occurred to me to just compare the number duets, and the results surprised me also.

Today’s presentation is such a chirpy and melodious construction. It has stayed with me for decades since the first hearing. So here it is, being posted for the listening pleasure of all friends and readers. Listen and enjoy.

प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना
कैसे तू जाने ना
दिल मेरा माने ना
तूने दीवाना किया
दुनिया से बेगाना किया
तूने दीवाना किया
दुनिया से बेगाना किया
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना

खोई खोई फिरूँ मैं
दीवानी
दिल की कह न सकूँ मैं
कहानी
दिल का दर्द बना
प्यार का छुपाना
हाए मोहब्बत
हाए रे ज़माना
दिल का दर्द बना
प्यार का छुपाना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों

जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
हाँ

जाने ना

तेरे दम से जवां हैं
बहारें
तुझ को दिल की धड़कनें
पुकारें
तेरी प्रीत बनी
जीने के बहाना
हाए मोहब्बत
हाए रे ज़माना
तेरी प्रीत बनी
जीने के बहाना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना

जाने कैसा नशा है
सुहाना
लब पे खूम उठा है
तराना
नैन से नैन कहें
प्यार का फसाना
हाए मोहब्बत
हाए रे ज़माना
नैन से नैन कहें
प्यार का फसाना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों

जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
हाँ

जाने ना
कैसे तू जाने ना
दिल मेरा माने ना
तूने दीवाना किया
दुनिया से बेगाना किया
तूने दीवाना किया
दुनिया से बेगाना किया
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों

जाने ना
प्यार दीवाना बने क्यों
जाने ना

10,500 !!!. Many Congrats to all.
This Lata-Rafi-Asha facts were quite a revelation.
I would be thankful if the stats across the decades are placed on a simple tabular format in one of the future posts. Simply unbelievable.

Thanks Sudhir ji ,Atul ji and all others.

saade das hazaar!!! sadde das hazaar as the Punjabis would say or saad e das hazaar in Urdu.
The music wagon chugging along nicely picking up nuggets on the way and many more on the way ahead..
The oft repeated refrain that Asha got short shrift; that she had to sing scum-songs is well buried from the statement that Asha-Rafi exceeded by the factor 2+. Again the number of songs sung by Asha exceeded by the factor 2+.
I have always maintained that Asha has excelled and has so many super songs sung with aplomb in her kitty, inspite of Lata trying to pull her down. The above comparisons vindicates my stand.
Lata must be wringing her hands with agony(row with Rafi); she could have added few thousands in her kitty.

Rafi-Asha had 943 duets out of which 122 became popular (that is to most of the population). Rafi-Lata on the other hand had 485 duets out of which 132 became popular. So, its not the quantity but the quality that counts! By throwing large numbers to prove that Asha did well or that Lata was replacable is really stretching it too far. Go and study the output of Lata by years, at the most she lost out on a few dozens of the songs and maybe only a few of them became popular because of Asha. There is a reason top actresses preferred to have Lata’s voice, and the Helens and Madhumatis of the world had Asha’s.

Lata was shy of singing sexy, kotha etc songs. Even for Inteqam cabere song she had to be coaxed. So Asha went ahead and sang them beautifully. Whats wrong. Somebody had to sing it and Asha did it adding thousands in her kitty in the process. It is more of Lata’s loss than Asha’s gain. Only the numbers get you in the record books
