Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.

Well, his blog is an encyclopedia of old HFM I would say, containing the most accurate information. In addition to all these qualities, he allows others to write on his blog (guess it is done after correcting wrong particulars sent by guest-writers. I am sure that many of the guest-writers are themselves experts in the field who don’t give wrong details. But it is another matter for a know-nothing person like me!!).

Hats-off to you Sir!!! Your ‘saat khoon maaf‘ (though I don’t forgive the acting of Priyanka Chopra in the movie (unrelated CSP??) 🙂 Hope you continue to do it for decades to come, my sincere wishes are with you.

Coming to song that I have selected by proxy (it was suggested by Sudhir ji, many thanks to you Sudhir ji) is “Barso Re Megha” from the 2007 film ‘Guru’. The movie was released in 2007.  It is directed by Mani Ratnam and produced under the banner of Madras Talkies. The music is by AR Rehman and the lyrics writer is Gulzar. The song is picturized on Aishwarya Rai and sung by Shreya Ghoshal. Each and every one of them is a very big name in the Hindi movie world as you all know. With this song, the movie ‘Guru’ makes its debut on the blog.

There is an unknown male singer who sings a couple of lines in between. Request to more knowledgeable readers to help identify the voice please.

What a delightful song it is. Aishwarya looks out of the world, dances ethereally. She sheds her plasticky image to portray the joy of experiencing rain. She dances with abandon to the steps of Saroj Khan. The background of the song is – she is about to leave her parental home and elope with her beloved Guru (role played by Abhishek Bachchan). There is a short dialogue in the song in Aishwarya’s own voice about India getting independence and she chuckling why shouldn’t she.

Rain is shown pouring throughout the song and it is supposed to be natural rain as it was monsoon season when this song was shot. Aishwarya is heard calling the clouds to send down more rains. She says the rain is neither warm, nor too cold; the temperature is at optimal level (kosa), is sweet (meetha) and is like a kiss (bosa). Unusual words but not unusual with Gulzar. (Thanks to Sudhir ji for the right meaning of the words). She wants to build a house with mud made wet by rains with her lover. And she is perched on a jhoola and literally rocking. Ah girl, what bliss!!

She hears the twinkling sounds of bulls and farmers tilling land. Unmindful of the consequences, she swims towards the dwelling of her premi. In the dark night, rain flows rapidly. She imagines that the clouds will be searching for her. After searching for a while in locations like ghar, aangan, angana and jharna, the clouds will move away unable to find her. See, she is clever enough to keep her activity covert, even clouds cannot see her. She tells the billowing clouds not to forget her as otherwise everybody will be asking them about her. What imagination!! With unsteady movements, she moves towards her goal of joining her darling dearest.

Now if anybody is wondering what is the relationship between this song and Atul ji’s feat. This is what Sudhir ji has to say – Listening to this song, what came to my mind is the downpour of music that is made possible by Atul ji, through ASAD. Makes perfect sense.

Enjoy the song. Hope you too jig / swirl / frolic / jive / prance with our heroine.

[Spoken words in Aishwarya’s voice while she writes a letter to father:]
(baapu main jaa rahi hoon. jo meri marzi hai woh aap ki pasand nahin.
ab desh aazaad hai, to aap ki beti kyon nahin? mujhe mera saathi mil
gaya hai. chinta mat karna, main khush rahoongi – aap ki Sujata
)

kaali kaali raaten
kaali raaton mein
yeh badarva baras jaayega
gali gali mujhko
megha dhoondega
aur garaj ke palat jaayega
ghar aangan angana
aur paani ka jharna
bhool naa jaana mujhe
sab poochhenge varna
re beh ke chali main to beh ke chali
re keh ke chali main to keh ke chali re megha
nanna re nanna re nanna re na naa re

[अपने पिता को पत्र लिखते हुये, ऐश्वर्या की आवाज़ में शब्द]
(बापू मैं जा रही हूँ। जो मेरी मर्ज़ी है वो आपकी पसंद नहीं।
अब देश आज़ाद है तो आपकी बेटी क्यों नहीं? मुझे मेरा साथी
मिल गया है। चिंता मत करना, मैं खुश रहूँगी – आपकी सुजाता
)

काली काली रातें
काली रातों में
ये बदरवा बरस जाएगा
गली गली मुझको
मेघा ढूंढेगा
और गरज के पलट जाएगा
घर आँगन अंगना
और पानी का झरना
भूल ना जाना मुझे
सब पूछेंगे वरना

Good write up Aparna! One of my favourite songs, and like you mentioned.. Aishwarya Rai does not have her usual plasticy look here. Mani Ratnam magic! Atul ji.. we can never thank you enough for this amazing blog!

Thanks for the appreciation Pradeep 🙂
We say thanks and appreciate his work, but it does not seem to be enough as you rightly say!!

The male Singer is UDAY MAZUMDAAR.

He is singing A famous Gujarati Folk Song.

Va Vhaya Ne Vaadal Oomatyaa,
Gokul Maa Tahuko Mor Malyaa.
Va ,Vhaya ……….

This Song is Played practically in every Dandiya Function

Ambreesh ji,

Thanks for this important input.

Sudhir

Ambreesh ji, thank you very much for filling in the blanks 🙂
Very much appreciate it.

Thanks for your nice article, Aparna ji.( after a loooooooong time).
The way you have described Atul ji’s commitment and dedication is all true.
-AD

Thanks Arun ji. Hope to write more often and with good information like you, but it seems a distant possibility. The knowledge that you have cannot be surpassed by anybody.

What a fine post this is, Aparna. You should definitely write more. 🙂

I went back to reading that “kitne bhi tu kar le sitam” post – had read it a long time ago, but was totally worth reading again. It truly depicts the reality of the conditions under which Atul has run this blog – any other person would have given up a long time ago! Just amazing, his dedication and determination!

Very nice song too. I watched this film on a flight long ago – didn’t pay much attention to the songs. This one escaped my attention – thanks for bringing it into the limelight. 🙂

Will try to do as you say Raja ji, will definitely try 🙂
How much ever we talk about talk Atul ji’s passion etc. it does not seem to be sufficient.
Hope you liked the song at the second go at least!

i am in total agreement —–Atulji is one of a kind— a legend—and patience personified

Yes, Nalini ji. Atul ji is one of the kind.

Patience reminds me. I should take this opportunity to thank Sudhir ji. I now know how many mistakes I had made while jotting down the lyrics. When Sudhir ji’s first mail appeared in my mailbox asking me to contribute, I still had not decided which song to write about. I requested him to suggest and he did that promptly. Later when I had difficulty in understanding few words, I blackmailed him saying if he does not give me the meaning of words, I would not write 😀 But he patiently responded to my queries. And he also added lyrics in Hindi. Thanks Sudhir ji for being the kind and patient editor.

Lovely to read your post here Aparna. So many people have written tributes to Atul and brought out a new characteristic of his that makes him unique.

We take postings here for granted in a way. It is almost as if a ghost is doing it. But we have to remember the pain WE undergo when we have to pick a song, write the lyrics and write the accompanying post. Atul does it EVERYDAY 4-5 times. Not to mention the stress of producing one debut song and one yipee one.

You are right Aparna, even for good money a person may be afraid of doing it, and Atul (+cohorts) do it out of love.

Ava ji, agree with you completely. We have all tried to bring out characteristic of Atul ji in our writing. He is one of a kind!
