“Saaz Aur Aawaaz”(1966) was directed by Subodh Mukherji. The movie had Joy Mukherjee, Saira Banu, Kanhaiya Lal, Padma, Niranajan Sharma, Asit Sen, Mumtaz etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. I was under the impression that all the songs of this movie were already covered in the blog, with the last song discussed in 2013 itself. Now it turns out that I had had failed in counting the songs of this movie. The fact that I had not discussed one of the songs from the movie was pointed out by H M Aparna, who takes her role of tagging YIPPEED songs very seriously and who often detects songs whose links were missing despite the songs being discussed in the past. Now she has pointed out a song from “Saaz aur Aawaaz”(1966) which I had actually failed to discuss and still I had painted the title of this movie orange declaring that all nine songs of the movie were discussed.

Our film industry is is not a level playing field for artists, that is for sure ! There were actors, directors, composers and singers who became famous. At the same time there were many ‘not so famous’ artists in all categories. But the largest group of artists are those who can be clubbed together as ‘unknown or less known’ artistes. The industry got enriched with the contributions of all these categories of artists. The ‘Famous’ artists may be 20%, the ‘Not so famous’ may be 30%, but the ‘Unknown or less known’ artistes must be 50% of all the artists in the industry.

Hearty greetings to all friends and readers on the celebration of the Raksha Bandhan festival today.

Ok, ok, I know the query springing in your mind. No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth. Very much here, reassuringly. Just that the cycles of fate brought in significant distractions and preoccupation for both Atul ji and myself, at the same time. The postings are just a trickle these days. But things on the personal and work fronts are keeping both of us away. Atul ji has been maintaining the trickle, whereas I have not been able to get anything on to the blog for days on end now. Long stories are often uninteresting, so I will cut it short, and say that days of drought are coming to a close. How soon, you may want to know. Pretty soon, I assure you. 😉 Hopeful to see more activity moving forward, and then we should be back to our regular output shortly.

Raksha bandhan comes in the festive month of Shravan. This year it is on 29th August 2015. Wishing all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the eighth time we are celebrating it on our blog. Does that mean we have run out of Raksha Bandhan songs to be posted? Actually if we take a look at the list on the right side of our blog –the list which breaks up the blog category wise— we find 21 Rakhi songs have been posted beginning with the all-time universal favourite “Bhaiyya Mere Rakhi Ke Bandhan Ko Nibhana” from the 1959 “Chhoti Behan”. The last song in this category was in 2013 by Sudhirji “pardesi ho humse rakhiya bandha” from a 1944 movie.

Today’s song is a special song-for me, because it is not only composed by one of my favourite composers, but it is also sung by him, as a duet with Shamshad Begum, in the film Hamaari Shaan-1951. Chitragupta is the composer / singer of this song.
