Chaandni raaten – Song No. 17
————————————–

       chandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       sab jag soye
       ham jaagen
       taaron se karen baaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten

This song has over the years been heard here and there. I was aware this is some remix song of an old song, just like the remix of the song ‘Kitni Akeli Kitni Tanhaa Si Lagi‘ from film ‘Talaash’ (1969).   I used to think that ‘Kitni Akeli. . . ‘ song was a Kishore Kumar song and remixed.  It was many years later that I heard the original Lata Mangeshkar song composed by SD Burman.

23rd December was the anniversary of passing away of two artists that have a significant contribution to the Indian cinema – singer Noorjehaan and music director K Datta.

Noorjehaan, born as Allah Wasai in 1926, was one of the eleven siblings born into a family of musicians and singers. Her parents, Madad Ali and Fateh Bibi encouraged her and at the age of six years, she learnt music at the feet of Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. When she was nine, her talent caught the attention of Ghulam Ahmed Chishti, who brought her to stage programs in Lahore, in which she appeared as Baby Noorjehaan. She gained attention in Lahore, and was invited to sing and to play child roles in Punjabi films being produced in Lahore. She appeared in films like ‘Misr Ka Sitaara’ (1935), and played the role of child Heer, in the Punjabi film ‘Heer Sayaal’.

‘Phanda-1975’ was one of the first few films screened at our colony club when the weekly screening of films was started there in 1975-76.  The name of this film was vague in my memory, and I do not remember either the film or its’ star cast or songs.  Might be an obscure movie of its time.  Now, after so many years when the film’s name knocked my memory, I take on search for its songs and other details.

Sometimes people end up giving really deep insights to you about yourself. But during the conversation, you do not grasp it and brush it off. This happened to me during my first jury at NID. First let me explain the concept of jury. Jury is what happens, when instead of exams, the college decides that a student should have only half an hour every semester to display every scrap of work they did for 4.5 months and justify that he/she did learn something. If one manages to do that, then they give you a decent grade and pass you for the semester. Nahi toh, Thakur toh giyo!

The 24th of December has always had a special meaning for lovers of Hindi film music.

And that is because it is fondly remembered as the date, when, in 1924, one of the greatest legends of Hindi film music was born. Today is therefore the 90th birth anniversary of this legend.

No prizes for guessing the name of the legend.

Yes, it is our beloved, Mohammad Rafi, who is lovingly and respectfully referred to by many around the world as Rafisaab.

The wait has been prickly. Eyebrows have been raised. Murmurs of disquiet are being heard. The posts have been delayed on the blog. Important posts, important anniversaries are overdue. All due to me. There is so much that has happened, that should have been covered at least two or three days ago. Multiple posts are in progress with me, and also posts and requests for anniversaries are piled up and waiting in the mailbox. On my side, I have a string of very plausible ‘excuses’ in my defense. But those details can wait. 🙂  The primaries first – it is six hundredth milestone that had to be breached, that is holding up everything else.
