As I am musing to start this write up, the two special things that come to mind are auspiciousness and unity.

Samajhne waale samajh gaye hain
Naa samjhe. . .
🙂 🙂

But it is not so that only these two thoughts are flowing in the mind.  Another thought that enters the mind is flee, escape, take flight etc. etc.  Haan, wo bhi hota hai.

I hope you are still with me. 🙂 🙂

Yes, you are right.  I am trying to start the writing of the post for the very very special occasion of today.  We have touched the next Massive milestone after THE MASSIVE milestone that we hit in July of 2014.  It has taken us eight months and eleven days to reach here.  . . . .Ooooops, I said it, when I was not even intending to say it.  But then the calendar is a calendar and if it has taken eight months and ELEVEN days to reach here, then that is what it is – it HAS taken ELEVEN days + eight months to get to today’s milestone.

Meena Kumari’s life was other people’s destination. For own self, it was a road leading nowhere….no point of arrival.

These words of Meena Kumari, ​ quoted in the book ‘Meena Kumari the Poet – A Life Beyond Cinema’ (2014),  sum up her short life, so well.

Today is the 43rd death anniversary of Mahajabeen Bano, better known as Meena Kumari (August 1, 1932 – March 31, 1972).  Although she had done roles in diverse genres, she was known as the ‘tragedy queen’ of Hindi films. Her personal life was no less a tragedy than the roles she had played in most of her films.  It is said that as a new born child, she was abadoned and put in an orphanage, albiet for few hours, as her parent could not afford to take care of her due to their poor financial condition. A change of mind of her parents brought her back to their residence. But the very thought of she being an ‘unwanted’ child must have lingered in Meena Kumari’s mind later on.  Most of her childhood was  spent in the film studios as she became the earning member of the family by working in the films as child actor.  Her youth was spent in depicting onscreen, the sufferings, sorrows and tragedies that are associated with most womenfolk in India.  After the marriage, her husband saw in her more an actress for his films than a wife.  With this background, one does not need a psychologist to analyse as to why she excelled in her tragic roles. One of her tragedy roles that most often lingers in my mind is  that of Chhoti Bahu in ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962) which, in a way, was a reminiscence of her own life.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The versatility of a writer, especially a song writer, is a direct reflection of his well rounded awareness and understanding of the many aspects of this life and the society that we live in.  Getting into the industry, and writing for the regular social and romantic themes is one level of expertise.  The next dimension to that is to move away from the conventional lines and create unusual verses.  Like the path breaking new sounds that RD Burman created in the 1970s.  An example of a neo+ song that comes to mind is the striking “Dam Maaro Dam” from the 1971 film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’.  The theme and the expressions in this song, well reflect the then ongoing hippie ‘revolution’ that had swept around the globe, starting from west in the second half of 1960s, and making its way east, as an undefined quest.  The song represents the moods of rebel thoughts that drove this movement.  Taking in the changes that were coming along with the newer generations, Anand Bakshi wrote the simple lyrics of this song, that at one time, had become the signature beat for the hippie people.

Remembering Anand Bakshi, on the day of his passing away today (30th March).

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 6 # Asha Bhosle – 1

Here is a song from the film ‘Return of Johny’ (1972). I had never heard it before.  When I started with noting down its lyrics; the first thing I did was to check up the year of release of the film ‘Kati Patang’. Why!! The answer lies in this song. It reminds us of the famous song “Mera Naam Hai Shabnam… Pyaar Se Log Mujhe Shabbo Kehte Hain” from the 1970 film ‘Kati Patang’. This song seems to be inspired from the ‘Kati Patang’ song.
