Kaun des se laaya re baabu dulhan bholi bhaali re

Century posts are our regular and most frequent causes for celebration in the blog. In the past, we would have such celebrations after every 15-16 days. Now a days, we get to celebrate such occasions at a rather more mature and sedate pace, viz after every 27-28 days.

This post is yet another century post for the blog. It marks the 129th century of the blog, viz 12900th song post for the blog.

There are many reasons for this difference is strike rate of these centuries.

Let me try and recall some reasons:

1. The years between 2010 to 2012 were the years when for some reasons, I was so motivated that I would wake up early morning by 4 A M or so and would start blogging from that time onwards. I was not the only one. I found Sudhir Ji too burning midnight oil whenever I logged on at small hours of the morning.

Secondly, I was less knowledgeable about HFM and things were more simple in the blog. We did not have the concept of introducing movies to the blog, YIPPYing movies in the blog etc. We did not even have the concept of list of songs (moviewise, MD wise and yearwise). All those ideas came up with time.

Not burdened with the above ideas, I would discuss six or sevn songs a day between 4 A M and 10 AM and my blogging for the day was done.

These days, I make it a point to introduce one “new” movie to the blog everyday by discussing the first song from such movies in the blog. YIPPYing a movie everyday is just the opposite exercise, where I discuss the final song from the movie.

While it may look simple, both these exercises are quite challenging, and they bring different kinds of challenges.

Introducing a “new” movie in the blog daily is easy if you are a new blog and very few songs are discussed in the blog. But when you have already covered over 3700 movies in the blog, then one needs to have a foolproof method to avoid errors. I have devised a method where I have the list of all the movies that were released right from 1931 till 1980. In my excel sheet, I have two column against each movies. One column is for the number of songs in that movie. Another column is for the number of songs discussed in the blog. When the two columns have the same figure then the movie gets YIPPEED. If there are no songs from that movie in the blog and that movie is a candidate for being introduced in the blog.

Just because a movie is not represented in the blog does not mean that it can be introduced just like that. There are movies whose songs ar simply not available. That is the case for most movies of early years. For instance, only one song from 1931 is available though 27 movies were released that year. So as many as 26 movies of 1931 can not be introduced in the blog, no matter how keen we are to do that. Likewise only 3 movies of 1932 can be introduced in the blog.

These days I am looking to introduce movies from 1940s onwards. After I “introduce” a movie, I update my statistics. It gives satisfaction to realise that the gap between movies in a year and movies from that year in the blog is getting reduced.

Among all the years, I am particularly fond of the years of 1950s. This is the first full decade of the golden era of HFM. This decade is the most well represented decade in the blog, moviewise as well as songwise. As many as 1108 movies were released in this decade (between 1951 to 1960). 914 of these movies have been represented in the blog. So another 194 movies are left to be covered in the blog. Songs from all these movies may not be available. Let us see what our final tally of movies of 1950s turns out to be.

A total of 4245 songs from this decade have been covered in the blog whereas 8654 songs were created in this decade. Like for the number of movies, the number of songs that are posted in the blog are required to be brought as close as possible to the number of songs created in the decade. As can be seen, just under 50 % of all the songs of 1950s are covered in the blog.

That is where the concept of YIPPYIng comes into picture. If we want to cover more songs from a decade, we should try to cover all songs of movies. Once we YIPPEE a movie, we are not required to look at its songs again and we can concentrate on un YIPPEED movies of the decades, including movies that have not yet made their debuts in the blog.

Let us take the year 1952 for instance. As many as 105 movies were released in this year. The blog has songs from 76 of these movies. So, we have to locate songs from the remaining 29 movies and discuss then so that these movies too get introduced in the blog. These movies are rare movies so it should come as no surprise if songs from some of these movies turn out to be unavailable.

849 songs were created in these 105 movies. This blog has 384 songs from 76 movies of 1952. 21 of these movies have already been YIPPEED, so we only have to concentrate on the remaining 55 covered movies plus the 29 as yet uncovered movies of 1952.

When we “introduce” a movie in the blog or discuss the final song of a movie, it is not always a simple affair. We do not just go to YT and locate the song. More often than not, the song under discussion turns out to be a rare song which is not even available on YT. Then we are required to search for it from some other source.

We in this blog are “introducing” a movie daily and YIPPYing a movie daily. The songs that are used in these posts are often “new” songs for most music lovers.

The song under discussion is the final song from “Moti Mahal”(1952). This movie, a forgotten movie had some obscure songs that were great to listen to. This seventh and final song from “Moti Mahal”(1952) is sung by Shamshad Begam and Devendra. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

So, this movie “Moti Mahal”(1952) gets YIPPEED in the blog with this song.

When I mention Devendra, I recall my visit to Delhi in october 2015. There I had met some Delhi based HFM lovers, namely M/s Bakshish Singh, Sudhir ji, Jawed Hamid, Arvinder Sharma and Srinivas Ganti. It was during our discussions that Mr Bakshish Singh made me aware about this singer called Devendra. My writeup describing this meeting discussed a Devendra song, and that happens to be the only Devendra song in this blog. So, this song, the 12990th song in the blog is the second song from Devendra to appear in the blog.

A blog century post these days is often combined with some other century and indeed that is what was my intention. I had intended this song too coincide with 200th song of Hansraj Bahl in the blog as a music director. But when I drew up the filmography of Hansraj Bahl, I found that he had composed songs in more number of movies than credited in site downmelodylane. So it turned out that Hansraj Bahl had already exceeded his double century. This happens to be 202nd song of Hansraj Bahl in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank all the visitors, well wishers, regulars, contributors and other HFM lovers who through their constant encouragent have kept this labour of love going on for 3126 days (as on 7 february 2017) and is still counting.

Congratulations Atul ji on 12900th Song Post !!!
Congratulations to All …!!!

Congratulations for 129th century.
We will have a big figure change in the next century.

Atulji, congratulations for attaining many milestones. When hopefully all films and all songs are covered, given the constraint that songs of many films may not be available, your site will be enshrined on the annals of Hindi film music as much as Hamraz’s effort in compiling HFGK. Yippee, of course!!

Nothing but ‘Wow’ in admiration to your efforts. In addition to your Himalayan efforts for these two categories you are chasing, you have to upload guest contribution, correcting their ‘wrong mistakes’!!! (May be most in my case)
Keep up Atulbhai.
