The last post by me in the blog was on 28th february 2016. Nine days have passed since then and I have not posted a single post in the blog during this period !

Some unavoidable reasons kept me away from the blog for this long. Despite my absence, the blog stayed active thanks to posts made by Sudhir Ji. I am extremely thankful to him to keep the musical bandwagon going single handedly for these nine days.

I come back today on 8 march 2016. Today is an important day for HFM, what with several anniversaries falling today. Sahir Ludhianvi and Manohari Singh have their birth anniversaries today whereas today happens to be Van Shipley’s death anniversary.

Today also happens to be Women’s day !

If we look back in time, we find that women were given a subservient status vis a vis men in most societies and civilisations.

Change is taking place in the status of women, but quite slowly. It is difficult to imagine it today that women were not allowed to watch ancient olympic games that took place more than two thousands years ago. And one may find it difficult to imagine that women were not allowed to vote till 100 years ago in most countries ! USA allowed their women to vote in 1920 ! France allowed women to vote in 1944, Italy in 1946, Greece in 1952. Switzerland allowed women to vote only in 1971. Saudi Arabian women got this right only in 2015 ! Indian women have enjoyed voting rights since 1947 when India became independent.

Women going to school/college to study, which we take for granted today was considered unusual in olden days. For instance, Kadambini Basu (later Ganguly) and Chandramukhi Basu became the first women graduates not only in India, but in entire British Empire when they graduated in 1880s. Kadambini Ganguly also became the first woman doctor of India in 1890s.

While girls had begun to go to schools by 1990s, few of them were sent to colleges and beyond. It was only for the last few decades that females have been allowed to do graduation and post graduation etc. Now a days we have many ladies jo “Thoda padhi likhi bhi hain”. 🙂

Then there are women who have begun to work as well. While they have been working in fields that were considered tailormade for them (nursing, air hostess, reception etc), they have begun to work in fields that were considered the sole preserve of men. It caused a sensation when Kiran Peshawariya (later Bedi) became the first female IPS officer of India. Even today, four decades later, she is regarded as a legend and she has inspired many movies and serials in different languages. A female policewaali is still a curiosity among average Indians. Forget ordinary Indians, even elite film stars want to get themselves photographed with real life policewaalis when they come across them.

While the number of working women have increased with time, majority of women have traditionally been brought up to serve as home makers when they grow up and get married. The household work that a housewife does often goes unnoticed. Or more accurately, it gets noticed only when the home makers fails to do her household works. The sensible and mature men (like many regulars of this blog) appreciate and recognise her contribution, but there are people who fail to appreciate her contributions. It is because of such people that we still need to have a “Woman’s day.”

Personally I find it quite ironical that there should be the need for a day like this. It is not than women are a minority community among humans. They are half of the total population. That is how nature intended it to be. So every day in the year should be a Woman’s day as well as men’s day. Hopefully a day will come when we may not have the need for such a day. I know for sure that many regulars in this blog (including me) observe women’s day everyday. 🙂

On the occasion of “Woman’s day”, here is the title song from a movie called “Maa Bahen Aur Biwi”(1973). This movie, an obscure movie despite being a recent movie by the standards of this blog was produced and directed by Harbans Kumar. The movie had Kabir Bedi, Prema Narayan, David Abraham, Raj Kishore, Jankidas, Tabassum, Tuntun, Anjana etc in it.

The song is sung by Mukesh. Sharda is the music director. Though there were two lyricists in the movie, the lyricist of this song is not known.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Song-Naari kaisi shaan hai teri(Maa Bahen Aur Biwi)(1973) Singer-Mukesh, MD-Sharda

Lyrics

naari kaisi shaan hai teri
har tasveer mahaan hai teri
tere oonche roop hain kya kya
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
naari kaisi shaan hai teri
har tasveer mahaan hai teri
tere oonche roop hain kya kya
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
tu hai maa behan aur biwi

dukh seh kar sukh deti hai
jag ko pyaar sikhaati hai
dukh seh kar sukh deti hai
jag ko pyaar sikhaati hai
sewa kar ke duniya ki
tu taqdeer banaati hai
naari kaisi shaan hai teri
har tasveer mahaan hai teri
tere oonche roop hain kya kya
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
tu hai maa behan aur biwi

ghar ki shobha tujhse hai
tu sansaar chalaati hai ae
ghar ki shobha tujhse hai
tu sansaar chalaati hai
kaarobaar chalaati hai
tu sarkaar chalaati hai ae
naari kaisi shaan hai teri
har tasveer mahaan hai teri
tere oonche roop hain kya kya
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
tu hai maa behan aur biwi

kal jo sati ho jaati thhi
bikti thhi baazaaron mein
kal jo sati ho jaati thhi
bikti thhi baazaaron mein
aaj usi ki raunaq hai
jalson mein darbaaron mein
naari kaisi shaan hai teri
har tasveer mahaan hai teri
tere oonche roop hain kya kya
tu hai maa behan aur biwi
tu hai maa behan aur biwi

adhaaypak hai rakshak hai
vigyaanik hai ab naari
adhaaypak hai rakshak hai
vigyaanik hai ab naari
naari ki kya shakti hai
maan gayi duniya saari
maan gayi duniya saari
maan gayi duniya saari

Welcome back, Atul ji.
If I remember correctly, the producer and director of the film, Mr. Harbans Kumar was a Person of Indian Origin, settled in West Indies, perhaps in Trinidad and Tobago Islands.
I think he also used to spell his name most unusually as Harbance Kumar.
Thanks and regards,
Avadh Lal
