Oopar waala neeche dekhe neeche waala oopar

It was because of the Google logo that I became aware that it was ‘World Earth Day’ on 22 april 2016. The next day (23 april 2016) the same google had William Shakespeare on its logo. Our Maheshji had also shared a screen shot of the google page that morning on our WhatsApp group. And on closer research I found that it was the death anniversary of William Shakespeare on that day.

Known as the bard of Avon, William Shakespeare, England’s national poet, playwright and actor is widely regarded as the greatest writer in English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. His works include plays, sonnets, poems etc which have been translated into the languages of the world. Though his birth year is not known sources give 1564 as the year he was baptised. He got married at 18 and he began a successful career in London as actor Writer and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men sometime between 1589 and 1592.

Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613. His early plays were primarily comedies and histories, and these are regarded as some of the best work ever produced in these genres. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest works in the English language.

In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. His plays are popular to this day and are constantly studied performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultures and political contexts through the world.

If the world is a fan of Shakespeare’s works can we Indians be lagging? We have learnt a few of his works through our school books. I remember having had to learn Merchant of Venice, Taming of the Shrew etc at school. My grandfather had the abridged version of most of the plays. Once I tried my hand at going through my grandpa’s collection and found the language a little difficult for a class X student. Thus I valued what I learnt from my school text book and thank my English teachers who made it easy for us students to enjoy the Bard.

It is 400 years since the death of the playwright, and celebrations commence in the UK and the world over to honour Shakespeare and his works in 2016.

When we can celebrate Woman’s Day, Earth day, Friendship Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day etc with the world I think we can also celebrate the Bard here on ASAD. And we are very lucky that he has a lot of fan following in Bollywood, the source from where this blog gets its nourishment. We don’t have to look far to find a Shakespeare fan too. We have Gulzar who made “Angoor” in the early 80s; a remake of the 1963 Bengali film “Bhrantibilas” from a novel by Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar; which was based on a “Comedy of Errors”. Gulzar had also been associated as lyricist in the 1968 Bimal Roy Production “Do Dooni Chaar” which was also based on “The Comedy of Errors”. Then in the last decade or so we had Vishal Bharadwaj who made three movies based on Macbeth – Maqbool (2003); Othello – Omkara (2006) and Hamlet – Haider (2014). Gulzar was the lyricist for even these movies. So that gives us a lot of Shakespearean works in Bollywood.

One song from “Do Dooni Chaar”(1968) was discussed on the death anniversary of William Shakespeare. Now, two days later, here is another song from “Do Dooni Chaar”(1968). This song is a “roadside tamaasha” song which is sung by Manna Dey, Krishna and chorus. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar. The picturisation consists of folk dances, madaari ka khel etc, all eagerly lapped up by the roadside tamaashaayees.

This delightful song, perhaps the least known song from this movie, is the sixth and final song from “Do Dooni Chaar”(1968) to appear in the blog. So this movie now joins the list of “Angoor”(1982) (and 768 other movies) that have all their songs covered in the blog.
