Today is Monday,7th March 2016,the holy day of MAHA SHIVRATRI.

I wish all our readers happiness and may Lord Shiv ji shower His Blessings on all of you, today and always !

India is unique. It has nurtured many religions, different races and a variety of cultures. I think, India is perhaps the only country in entire world, with such a diversity of Languages, Cultures and Religions – all living together happily and as ONE NATION. It has, over a period, belied the strong opinions and beliefs of the world that after Independence, India can not survive as a Nation for long with such variety in its population. We have not only proved them wrong, but also prospered in a way which few had imagined in their dreams !!!

All this because if India’s unique culture of inclusiveness. Perhaps it is the only country where festivals of all religions are celebrated on National level, with a Constitution guaranteeing equality for all. May be this is the reason that festivals like Diwali, Eid and Christmas are celebrated with fervour everywhere. Major religious festivals like Dashehara, Diwali, Ganeshotsav, Sankranti and Durga Puja have become cultural events rather than remaining only Hindu celebrations.

MAHA SHIVARATRI is one such celebration which is followed from north to south and east to west of India. This is the day when Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati got married, as per Shiv Puran (a sacred and important religious text of Sanatan Dharm). Their Divine Union is celebrated at midnight of this holy day.

Many religious films are made on Shiv and Parvati stories, so far. Film Shiv Shakti-1980 is also one such film. This film is a mix of 3 stories, 1) story of Sati Madalasa, 2) story of “Sola Somvar Vrat”and 3) story of Paatalketu. The story of asur Paatalketu is that he becomes a tyrant after Devi Parvati’s boon to him that he can not be killed by anyone, with a condition that should he molest a ‘pativrata’ (a devoted wife of a person), he will be destroyed. Once he gets the boon, he starts harassing the people and forces them to worship only him instead of any other God. When his tyranny becomes unbearable, all the Gods (rendered helpless due to the boon) surrender to Lord Shiva. The story then unfolds how Shiva creates a situation, by which Sati Madalasa kills Paatalketu.

The film was made by Hari Manek Movies,was directed by Satish Kumar and music was composed by Chitragupta. The cast of the film was Dara Singh ( in the role of Lord Shiva), Jayashree Gadkar ( as Devi Parvati), BM Vyas ( as Paatalketu), Ramesh Deo, Jairaj, Jeevan etc. There is a long list of the star cast. However, there is one name – Gopi Krishna, in the cast, who had multiple tasks in the film. He acted in this film, presented the dances and also was the choreographer.

Dancer Gopi Krishna was born on 20-8-1935 at Calcutta. You will hardly find any information about his parents anywhere. Only his relation with Kathak Dancer Sitara Devi is emphasized everywhere. He was born to Tara Devi and Maruti Rao Pehelwan. Both his parents were film stars. Maruti Rao was a tall, handsome person who had worked in films since the Silent Era till the late 1940s. True to his name, he had a muscular physique. In the 1930’s many wrestlers and bodybuilders came to the industry for working in stunts and action films. Some names are Master Vithal, Master Bhagwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Nandram Pehelwan, AR Pehelwan etc etc. However since Marutirao could speak fluent Hindi and sing well also, he was in demand for social films also. Precisely for these skills, he was chosen for the role of the Saint Narsi Mehta, when Sagar Movietone decided to make the first ever Gujarati talkie film, ‘Narsinh Mehto’ in 1932. He worked in all four parts of the film ‘Hatimtai’ in 1933, ‘Lanka Dahan’, ‘Baala Joban’, ‘Bulbul e Paristan’ etc.

Gopi Krishna’s mother Tara Devi was the elder sister of actress Sitara Devi. She had worked in ‘Pooran Bhagat’ (1933) and ‘Yahoodi Ki Ladki’ (1933) with KL Saigal. She had also worked in films like ‘Aurat Ka Dil’, ‘Seeta Swayamwar’, ‘Surya Kumari ( all from 1933), ‘Haiwan’ (1940) etc etc. When both she and Marutirao Pehelwan worked together in films ‘Matsyagandha’ (1934) and ‘Shahi Lakadhara’ (1934), they fell in love and got married. After retirement by late 40s they left Bombay and settled in Dhulia, Maharashtra. Marutirao, true to his name, started a Milk Dairy and ran it for a long time.

Gopi Krishna came back to Bombay from Calcutta, after being fully trained by several Gurus, including his maternal grandfather. In Calcutta, at the age of just 15 years, he had won the title of ‘Natraj’. He won wide acclaim for his dancing in Calcutta. In Bombay, he joined films and became the youngest ever choreographer, at the age of 17 years – when he became the choreographer for the film ‘Saaqi’ (1952) to direct the beautiful Madhubala. He was simply awed by her beauty. In turn, Madhubala also took fancy towards him and one day she invited him to join for lunch. Madhubala never ate the hotel food. She used to get a tiffin from her house, daily having homely food. He was stunned and could not decline. While she served her food to him, he sat glued to his seat, looking at her and eating whatever was served to him in his plate.

Basically Gopi Krishna was a vegetarian. Madhubala was naturally a non vegetarian, being a Muslim, and had only meat dish in her tiffin box. Not knowing what he was eating, Gopi Krishna relished the food served by Madhubala. Later he learned what he had eaten, but then it was too late and since he had already partaken non vegetarian food himself !

Gopi Krishna acted in 22 films. As a dancer and choreographer, he did 64 films. Even today,he is remembered for his role in the iconic film ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955). Gopi Krishna married kathak dancer Savitri in 1954. After 26 years, he got a daughter – Shampa, in 1980. Gopi Krishna died on 18-2-1994 due to a heart attack. He could not see his daughter Shampa blossom into a successful dancer and choreographer in films.

Today’s film Shiv Shakti-1980 had only 6 songs. One of the songs, “Sachchai Ka Suraj” by Mohammed Rafi, is already posted here on 24-2-2014. Today’s song is the second song. In the video clip,you can see the eye catching dance of Gopi Krishna, in presence of Lord Shiva – enacted by Dara Singh. Let us listen to this Shiv – Stuti song on this occasion of Holy MAHA SHIVRATRI today.
JAI SHIV SHANKAR !.

Arunji,
Thank you for this wonderful post and song on this very auspicious day. Story on Gopi Krishnaji’s life is very interesting. I was not aware of the fact that his parents were film actors and he was a nephew of Sitara Devi. No wonder he was a very talented personality.
Thank you again.
