Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 06
—————————————————
Remembering Rafi Sahab on his 36th Death Annivrsary (31 july 2016) :

I had originally planned to have 10 posts in this series – Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable- concluding it on this anniversary day of one of the saddest days in the history of indian film and music industry. But due to various factors it is becoming increasingly unlikely to happen. So I may continue with the series, again depending on factors which are beyond my control. I have many more songs of Rafi sahab with lyrics and some of the posts ideas ready in draft folder but they will have to wait.

No, there is no dearth of inspiring songs of Rafi sahab even though all the better known and hit songs comprising more than 50 % of all songs sung by him in his 35 years active career, are already posted in the blog. Every time I start to look for a link to write down the lyrics of the song I intend posting, Youtube is giving a few more choice songs, as good as the song I am working on. This is also one of the factors causing delays in preparing and sending posts.

Knowing that other fellow contributors to the blog are possibly working on their anniversary posts this weekend, I decided to start early and get my post ready and dispatched at the earliest. I have a feeling that some of the songs I intend to write a post on, may get posted on this occasion. Or maybe someone else will also choose the song of film ‘Sargam’ that I am discussing here.

The song “ham to chale pardes” is one of those solos which has been a personal favourite. Every time I listen to it, it seems as if the all elements around are also singing the heartfelt song with Rafi Sahab. This happens while watching the video and listening to the audio. This song is no child’s play to sing, no one but Rafi sahab is able to sing and carry off something like this.

It is heartening to see that like always, this year too there are so many shows being held all over the world in his memory. Seeing the advertisements in the newspaper, inspired me all over again.

This song is a background song which is picturised as Rishi Kapoor and Jaya Prada, who are leaving their village for ever. Rishi Kapoor was recently in news for his tweets about something. When he gave his preferred names to be honoured, Rafi Sahab name was the first one he took along with Kishore and Mukesh. This may be a stray, trivial thought expressed by him, but the point is made. I have long held the view the true national wealth of our nation is the indian film music. Though to imagine and think that we will ever see a sign of ‘ Mohammed Rafi International Airport’ or something akin to it, in our country is all but a pipe dream. But a nice thought, all the more nicer owing to the numerous songs, ghazals, geets, bhajans, folk, devotional, ballads and naghme, old and new, heard or unheard.

I agree Nahmji, it is much better to name roads and airports after artists who have given so much joy and love to their listeners/ viewers/ readers than the nasty politicians.

Again it is wonderful to regard our film songs, unique to our country, as a national wealth that can never deplete. We will always be Sone ki Chidiya as far as film songs are concerned.

I loved Sargam, it was a movie unusual to its times, it had so many lovely songs.

Thanks for posting this.

Thank you for your appreciation of my thoughts and my song selection.

Regards.

‘ Mee raqsam ‘ is song no. 05. This should be song no. 06

Would love to hear “Abhi hum ke Mohammad Rafi Airport pe utarne waale hain. 🙂

I totally agree with you about how songs keep popping up on youtube and you keep discovering new ones. Happens to me all the time. Not that I’m complaining. 🙂

Thank you for this song, Mrs. nahm ji. Listening to it after ages! Sometimes you just need a trigger for a song, and it can come from anywhere – like now from you. 🙂

thank you Nahmji for this song and such an appropriate date. i was in love with all the songs of the movie and used to play the cassette regularly back then. my sister used to dance to dafliwale. most of the songs in this movie had become popular.
and i also remember the ad that used to come on vividh bharati during the chitralok programme from 8.15 to 9.30. it used to something like : Beghar Rishi Kapoor; followed by a line from the song (Parbat Ke uspaar); bezubaaan Jaya Prada; again followed by a line from the song (parbat ke ispaar) aur jab dono mile toh; followed by the final line of the mukhda; (goonj uthi cham cham cham meri payal ki jhankaar)
this was how the 30 sec ad began.
