We in this blog mostly deal with old songs that were mostly created during the golden era of HFM.

Many of us were in fact born during the golden era of HFM and so we lived in that era and we are in a position to say “those were the days” to the younger generation if they are interested. 🙂

The music lovers of those days listened to music on loudspeakers and by visiting movie halls. Rich people would listen to music on their record players. But the most common and affordable may of listening to music used to be Radio.

The serious and strict kind of people would use Radio to listen to serious stuff like news and would scoff at the low brow people who sought to listen to filmy songs on radio. Even the first Information and broadcasting minister of India was a serious and strict type of person who believed that cheap filmy music was detrimental to Indian youth and he banned filmy music from All India Radio. Only pucca classical music by pucca classical music ustaads were allowed.

Radio Ceylon, the radio station of our neighbours across the Palk strait fully capitalised on this opportunity and started a Hindi service where they would predominantly broadcast Hindi movie music. Radio Ceylon took HFM lovers by storm. Indian adverstisers made a beeline to the doorsteps of Radio Ceylon and Radio Ceylon began to carry advertisements as well as sponsored programmes.

Radio Ceylon (later renamed SLBC) too had its golden era which coincided with the golden era of HFM. The end of golden era saw the quality of HFM going down. At the same time, All India Radio too began to allow advertiement of Vividh Bharati (music wing of All India Radio, which was opened in 1957 after the first I & B minister’s dictat proved counterproductive for the listenership of AIR).

The heyday of SLBC is a thing of the past. Now a days no sponsors go to SLBC and its Hindi service has become a very curtailed affair. It is broadcast only in the morning and it basically consists of two programmes daily. Old timers who grew up listening t this radio can still listen to its daily programmes in the morning.

Those who cannot listen to it on radio, can still catch up later. The recording of the days programmes are dutifully uploade on YT every morning alongwith full details of the songs. This is a great service for music lovers who want their daily dose of SLBC Hindi service.

How many of us know about this extremely dedicated individual who uploads these programmes daily without fail ! He has been doing it for many years now.

The fact that SLBC programmes are still broadcast was something I came to know from him when he made a few comments in this connection in this blog.

Today (13 december 2016) is the birth anniversary of Mr Ashwani Kumar, the indefatiguable SLBC lover who is bringing musical sunshine in our lives every morning. Mr Ashwani Kumar is a Delhi based music lover. Our Delhi base regulars, such as Sudhir Ji, Bakshish Ji etc are familiar with Mr Ashwani Kumar, having met with him several times. I have never met Mr Ashwani Kumar, though we are facebook friends. He very kindly admitted me in a facebook group of SLBC that he runs. SLBC announcers also recognise the cotributions of Mr Ashwani Kumar and they too are members of this group. The details of the songs of these programmes are provided by Mr Narsingh D Agnish, a USA based music lover. So he is another dedicated bird of the same feather.

Mr Ashwani Kumar is a few years senior to me (as I can make out). His dedication to the cause of HFM is something that we all can draw inspiration from. Personally I am immensely benefitted by his uploads. This blog too has benefitted as a result.

I take this opportunity to wish Mr Ashwani Kumar a very happy birth anniversary on behalf of the blog. Here is hoping that he will have a long, healthy and fruitful musical innings ahead of him. HFM musical lovers are highly indebted to Mr Ashwani Kumar.

On this occasion, here is a nice song from “Maaya Baazaar”(1958). “Maaya Baazaar”(1958) was directed by Babubhai J Mistri for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Anita Guha, Rajkumar Pandey, Ulhas, B M Vyas, Ram Singh, Ramesh Sinha, Mahipal, Vasantrao Pahalwan, Dalpat, Babu Raje, Shree Bhagwan, Samar Roy, Ratnamala, Krisha Kumari, Sulochana, Kanchanmala, Pal Sharma, Uma Dut, Master Prithvi, Premlata, Geeta, Ratan, Rajni, Neelophar, Manda, Bhumiya, Ajit Kumar, R S Dubey, T N Sinha , Korega etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. This is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Anita Guha(I guess) and many female and male dancers. Thier dance is being witnessed by two men who seem capable to doing magic as we see in the picturisation.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors who are visible in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

re ma re malaali ho
re ma re malaali ho

jhumchak jhumchak jhulaa liya
jhumchak jhumchak jhulaa liya

re ma re malaali ho
re ma re malaali ho

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
huye maare sharam ke laal re
teri roke gagariya mujhpe saanwariya
yoon na najariya daal re
gore gore tumhaare gaal re
bas hote rahenge laal re
gori ek nahin chalti
aankhiyaan jo milti
dil ki badalti chaal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re

chaal deewaani
ye jawaani ki rawaani aur hai
chaal deewaani
ye jawaani ki rawaani aur hai
baat ye maani roopraani
par kahaani aur hai
teri meri jodi
mili hai abhi gori
milaa de paayal ki bhi taal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
hue maare sharam ke lal re
teri roke gagriya mujhpe sawariya
yu na najariya daal re
gore gore gulaabi gaal re

aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
o o o o o
aa aa aa
o o o o o
aa aa aa
laakh sambhalta chalta chalta
dil uchhalta pyaar mein
laakh sambhalta chalta chalta dil uchhalta pyaar mein
chain na dete dil le lete
nain pahli baar mein
meethhi meethhi baaten
chori ki mulaakaaten
ye pyaar ki hai jaadu bhari chaal re
gore gore gulaabi gaal re
hue maare sharam ke laal re

ho gori ek nahin chalti
aankhiyaan jo milti
dil ki badalti chaal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re

laaj ho karna
to dilon mein yoon utarna chhod de
laaj ho karna
to dilon mein yoon utarna chhod de

aaj se maana tera kehna
par tu naina jod de
teri meri jodi
mili hai abhi gori
milaa de paayal ki bhi taal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
huye maare sharam ke laal re

gori ek nahin chalti
aankhiyaan jo milti
dil ki badalti chaal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re

hoy hoy hoy hoy
haay haay
haay haay haay

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
huye maare sharam ke laal re

gore gore tumhaare gaal re
bas hote rahenge laal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
huye maare sharam ke laal re

gore gore tumhaare gaal re
bas hote rahenge laal re

gore gore gulaabi gaal re
bas hote rahenge laal re
gore gore gulaabi gaal re
bas hote rahenge laal re

Two actors are Rajkumar & Uma Dutt

I have my doubt about Uma Dutt. The actor looks a typical southie actor and too stout for him to be UD.

The tasks being executed by Mr Ashwani Kumar and Mr Narsingh D Agnish are indeed very much commendable.

Even inadvertent mistakes, if any, in the broadcast are duly corrected by them before posting.
