Yaadon ki baaraat nikli hai aaj dil ke dwaare

Clearly the adage “once bitten, twice shy” doesn’t apply to Atulites.

At least not to Batulites (Bengaluru-based Atulites).

Otherwise there’s no reason they’d ask me to post a write-up on the blog, describing the recent gangout event. The last time I wrote a post on a Bengaluru gangout, it was more than six months after the event! By then, I’d forgotten some details – and possibly many had lost interest. 🙂

Or maybe they’re just forgiving – and giving me a second chance here.

Anyway, this time I hope not to let them down. Also, I’m going to try to complete this post in one shot (unlike the last time).

Readers of recent posts will be aware that Avinash Scrapwala and his wife arrived in Bengaluru on the 1st of October 2016 to spend a few days in the city.

For Batulites, ever happy to meet up, this was reason enough to try to organize a gangout event, with Avinashji and his wife as chief guests.

After some discussion on the Batulite whatsapp group, the date picked was Sunday, 2nd October 2016.

Except for Aparna (whose attendance was tentative), the other Bengalureans confirmed their availability. We were hoping that Aparna would also be able to make it for that date. As it turned out, she had a function to attend on that date and couldn’t make it.

So finally the gangout attendees were Avinashji and his wife, Shenoyji and his wife, Srinivas Gantiji and his wife, Gajendraji, Peevisie’s Mom and myself.

I must say it was nice to have Satulites (spouse of Atulites, not to be confused with satellites :- ) ) also present. As we joked during the sesson, this was our way of brainwashing them and trying to bring them into the fold (in other words, converting Satulites into Atulites). Also, it made Atulites feel less guilty when they spent hours staring at the blog on screen. 🙂

To be fair to them though, all of them are already interested in music and quite knowledgeable too. So, whether converted or not, they seemed to enjoy the gangout as much as the rest of us.

Now, about the venue.

The gangouts of 2014 and 2015 had happened at my place. This time too, that was the original plan. Then, a few days before the meet, I got a call from Peevisie’s Mom to discuss about the event.

While discussing, we realized that, Gajendraji’s place in East Bengaluru would be more convenient for the event than my place in South Bengaluru. For one, with Srinivas Ganti also moving to East Bengaluru recently, East ka “palaDa bhaari ho gaya”. I was the only attendee (and Avinashji + wife, of course) who was not from East Bengaluru.

Also, as Peevisie’s Mom told me rather frankly “Aap ke jagah pe internet ka problem bhi hota hai na”. I must admit that in previous events, this had been a bother. And Murphy’s Law was at its best. While internet did work, it was iffy – and distracted us from the gangout itself. When we meet, we want full attention on the event and not have to worry about infra issues.

Gajendraji, on the other hand, has things much more under control. I’d been to his place when Arunji was in town – and his setup is much more reliable. Not only does he have more reliable connectivity, he is also skilled and experienced in connecting devices, streaming live videos and things like that. We knew we had a better chance of fully concentrating on the event.

So we contacted Gajendraji and he was only too happy to host the event.

The Batulite whatsapp group was duly informed – and now planning for the event began in right earnest.

Srinivasji offered to host a quiz programme, Gajendraji also had a quiz in mind. Avinashji suggested a group autograph collage. There was a proposal to watch a film together – after some discussion, we decided it would be Priyatama (1977). I suggested we could all do some singing – even if it was only a few lines (finally this didn’t happen – maybe next time!).

The time was set at 10.00 am. Venue: Gajendraji’s Place.

And so, the day dawned. 2nd October. Gandhi Jayanti. Sunday.

That morning, Avinashji and I went for a morning walk. We were walking towards the usual park I go to, but there was a road block. So we went off on a different route – and we ended up going to the lake park near my house. One that I’ve passed many times but never visited. 🙂 The things that you do when you go off your beaten track routine!

Anyway, that was a digression.

The idea was to get ready by 9.00 and take a Uber cab, so as to get to Gajendraji’s place by 10.00. After having breakfast, and a bit of delay, it was almost 9.30 when we left home. But luckily there wasn’t much traffic on the road, so we managed to get to Gajendraji’s area a little after 10.00.

Even as we were entering his complex, we noticed Srinivasji and his wife walking on the road. We’d never met them before but I recognized Srinivasji from his Facebook pictures. So we paid off the cab and walked the few metres further to Gajendraji’s place together.

As usual, Gajendraji was very warm and welcoming. This was the fourth time I was meeting him – and everytime I’ve met him, I’ve always got the same sense of warmth and comfort. One immediately feels comfortable in his presence.

The others had not arrived yet. Peevisie’s Mom had already told us she’d be a little late, as she had some social obligations to first take care of.

While we were chatting and introducing each other, Shenoyji and his wife arrived. So, more introductions. We passed around the sheet for the gangout group autographs.

In the meantime, Peevisie’s Mom also arrived. She’d had a hectic morning, having woken up at 4.00 a.m (and slept the previous night at 12:00 midnight). She arrived with a cake in tow – this was promptly cut and consumed, but not before Gajendraji managed to capture it on video. The cake had “ASAD – Atul Song A Day 2016” on it – and looked (and tasted) lovely. Thank you, Peevisie’s Mom, for this thoughtful addition to the event.

Since we now had full attendance (Aparna having unfortunately confirmed that she wouldn’t be able to make it), we decided to get the activities started.

First up, Srinivasji and his Uttar Dakshin quiz.

This was as follows. He would play part of a South Indian song (audio) on the computer. We would need to guess the mukhda of the Hindi version of that song. He would start with the antara – if we could crack it with this itself, 2 points. If we cracked it only after hearing the mukhda, then 1 point.

We were divided into two groups, based on how we happened to be sitting at that time. Avinashji, his wife and I were in one group. Shenoyji, his wife and Peevisie’s Mom were in the other group.
Srinivasji’s wife had been part of the quiz creation/approval team, so she wasn’t part of any team. Gajendraji also didn’t belong to a team – he was the cameraman.

Early on, it became apparent that it wasn’t exactly going to be a close contest. Shenoyji and Peevisie’s Mom were just too strong for us. Some of the songs suffered from TOT syndrome (term Gajendraji came up with, meaning tip-of-tongue syndrome :-)). Some others were just tough – and one we should have really got, we missed. (Nis din, nis din, from Annadaata).

Anyway, the final results were something like 8-6 or 9-7 (which clearly flattered us, considering they were way better). But the good thing was, the quiz was of a pretty decent standard – the odd easy song but most of them needed some effort. Credit to Srinivasji and his wife for this.

The entire quiz was captured by Gajendraji on video.

Then, we moved on to Gajendraji’s quiz.

This was more relaxed – only because there were no points. 🙂 Or maybe there were, but after some time, nobody seemed to keep track anymore. 🙂 That saved me and my team some humiliation. 🙂

This quiz was in the format of “guess the singer”. Gajendraji would play a song – and we had to guess the singer. This being Gajendraji, these weren’t Rafisaab, Kishore songs. We were exposed to (and got exposed too) a whole lot of songs, mainly from the 1930s/40s, sung by various singers, from Juthika Roy to Noorjehan to Ameerbai Karnataki to Zohrabai Ambalewali to Premlata to Suraiya to Rajkumari to Shanta Apte to early Asha Bhosle to Mubarak Begum to Meena Kapoor and many more. Not to be outdone, the male singers too were varied, from GM Durrani to Anil Biswas to Khan Mastana to Mukesh. Am sure Arunji would have had a field day 🙂 but most of us were just guessing.

It was a lot of fun – and educational too. I think some of the songs were non-film songs, and many of them possibly not even on the internet. I quite enjoyed listening to many of them, even if I had no clue who the singer was. I would request Gajendraji to upload these songs to youtube if he doesn’t mind. That way, they can be enjoyed by a broader audience – and can make their way to our blog too.

After this session (at the end of which my brain would not have been able to distinguish between Rafisaab and Lata anymore :-)) , it was time for a welcome break. In other words, lunch.

Packed lunch was arranged from Rajdhani restaurant – and all of us went about doing justice to the food.

After lunch, it was time for the film show. Priyatama (1977). At this point, Srinivasji and his wife had to leave, so we said goodbye to them. This was the first time I was meeting them (I think first time for all of us, except Gajendraji?) – it was a pleasure. Looking forward to meeting them at future gangouts too.
The rest of us continued – and the film got underway. I had last seen Priyatama in the late 70s. While I broadly remembered the theme, I’d forgotten the details. I only remembered the songs “koi roko na” and “main jo kahoon haan to haan”. Gajendraji had not seen the film before. Peevisie’s Mom had But it was good for all of us to see it together.

Of course, watching a full film requires a lot of time. We’d watched quite a bit when we decided it was time to call it a day. Peevisie’s Mom had had a hectic morning and was understandably somewhat tired – but she still wanted us to visit her place (which wasn’t too far off) before leaving. So all of us (Avinashji, wife, Shenoyji, wife, Gajendraji and myself) went to her place. We spent about 15-20 min there, met Peevisie’s Dad (also a Satulite?), before it was time to say goodbye to all. All good things have to come to an end – and our gangout was no different.

And this, friends, is the story of our 2nd October 2016 gangout at Bengaluru.

As Avinashji, his wife and I made our way back home by cab, I felt much energized after the event. Music,and discussions on music, anyway tend to energise me – but it is much more so after having an enjoyable time with friends. Time seems to fly on such occasions – but that’s how it goes. I am just glad we managed to have the event, that too, with Avinashji and his wife gracing it.

Now to the song for today.

When music lovers get together, that too Atulites, it is but natural that there will be memories. Of songs, of the blog, of artistes. A gangout is a natural place for this to happen – and our gangout was no different.

So the song for today is also about memories. It is a song from the 1970s – lyrics provided by Avinashji (as usual, with a lot of diligence).

Here is “Yaadon ki baaraat nikli hai aaj, dil ke dwaare” from the film Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973). The film was a pretty big hit – all the songs were hits too. I think “chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko” was one of the most popular songs of the 70s. RD Burman’s star was already on the rise – this film certainly did its share in enhancing his popularity.

Vijay Arora became a known face. Ajit’s growing reputation as a villain got a big boost. Dharam’s reputation as a bankable hero also rose – he successfully survived Rajesh Khanna’s superstardom. One might say, he even thrived – considering the string of hits he had in the early 70s. Zeenat Aman also got a boost in her career with this film. Tariq somehow didn’t make it big despite this film – and Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin a few years later.

Hope you enjoy this post and this song.

Phew! I managed to finish this post in one sitting! Yippeee!!! 🙂
