Rare Performances – Things Unique and Unexpected #9

So what did you say was so special about 31st Jan?  Well, to start with, the realization that, gosh, one full month has slipped by in what was just a few days ago, the New Year. The year that was new, is now one month old.   And do you know how old is the blog today? OK, let me calculate. With the start date of 19th July, 2008, we are looking at – oh, 6 full years + 6 full months + 13 full days.  A quick visit to the calculator tells us that this corresponds to 6.54 years.  So there, our blog is 6.54 years old.

A very adorable sweetness, that is what her voice always conveys.  Be it a song of joy or verses of pensive sadness, it is the amiable pleasantness of the voice that appeals the most.  Just earlier in the day, Bakhshish Singh ji and I were conversing about this anniversary today.  One of his comments sounded very charming.  He said, no matter what is the tone of the song, as you listen to it, you can feel a smile behind the sound.  May it be a cheerless song of sadness, even then the voice sounds as if there is a sweet smile behind it.  That is Suraiya’s voice for you.

Remembering this sweet and sad sound and the singer behind it, on the anniversary of her passing away today (31st January).

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 1
————————————————-

I remember a very interesting scene from a film, seen long back on Doordarshan, whose name I am not able to recall right now.  The scene is in a moving train.  I think it is a Kishore Kumar film, but not very sure.  A person is selling ‘barfi’ in the train.  (‘Barfi’ is an Indian sweet made from milk and sugar).  He is carrying a tray full of barfi pieces, and is trying to catch the attention of the travelers, to sell and to earn.  He is not having much success.  He comes in front of Kishore Kumar, and a dialogue ensues.  Kishore asks him why should I buy this barfi from you.  The seller gives some very simple answers like it is good to eat and he needs to earn money.  Kishore tells him he will never be able to make a sale with such kind of answers.  Then he offers to make the sales pitch for him.  He conjures up a funny and interesting jingle about the barfi on the spot, and tries to catch the attention of fellow travellers, singing the jingle he has just created.  Of course he is able to make a lot more sales.  The seller is very impressed, and the two strike a friendship that lasts through the film.

After almost four decades of a self imposed silence, finally the life breath behind this charming voice faded away, this day eleven years ago. A voice that was the darling of the listeners, for more than two decades prior to her reclusive phase.

Remembering Suraiya on the anniversary of her passing away (31st January).
