Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Saawan aag lagaaye re

This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.

Blog regulars report that when they finally meet another blog regular in person for the first time, it never appears to them that they are meeting for the first time. It appears that they have known each other for years.

Secondly, it is reported that the persons they meet look extremely humble and self effacing, despite possessing extraordinary abilities that we in the blog are privy to for years.

I have never met Prakashchandra. Others too have not met him. That way he is as elusive a regular as our Avinash Scrapwala used to be once upon a time till he broke his hoodoo and became quite a regular gangouter as he suddenly went on a gangout attending spree, meeting other regulars at Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai.

Prakashchandra may not have met others face to face, but it appears to me (and to others as well) that we know him for years.

Prakashchandra started his association with the blog as a farmaish sender and he was soon hailed as a farmaish king by Peevesie’s mom. A sensitive person that he is, he once felt that his long list of farmaishes were being resented by some regulars. I had to assure him that it was not the case.

Prakashchandra reminded me so much of the Jhumri Tilaiyya farmaish senders of yore. 🙂

His farmaishes sometimes caused me to post songs that I was not aware of and which were rare songs.

Prakash Chandra once (in late 2010) mentioned about a song, which was an ideal song to listen to late at night, but he had not been able to locate the song. So he was only able to listen to this song on radio, once in six months or so. He hoped that I would be able to locate this song and discuss it in the blog.

His description made me very curious about this song, and I spent one whole day to search for this elusive song. Finally I managed to find this rare song.

Prakash Chandra was right. This song was indeed an ultimate Chhaayaageet song. Very few people may have heard this song till then. If one listens to this song twice, then from the second time onward, this song grows up on you.

And that is how I posted this song from “Girls’ Hostel” (1962) in the blog.

And pat came the effusive thanks from Prakashchandra

“Aapne woh kaam kar diya, ke main bayaan nahin kar sakta, ke main aapse kis kadar khush hoon”
thanks thanks thanks, tahank a zillion times
love you love you love you
prakash

Not just him, quite a few other music lovers exclaimed that they re discovered this forgotten gem after decades, thanks to this post. Of course, the thanks were due to Prakashchandra.

Reading prakashchandra’s comments in the blog, where he bares his heart about his feelings on the blog and his association with the blog never fails to warm the hearts of the readers.

From night 11`o clock and to 12`o clock,Now It is a compulsive habit to sit and writing the lyrics .

School ki homework bhi main itni maze lekar aur itne devotion ke saath nahin kartaa thaa 🙂

1 month ago, when I lost Internet connectivity to the blog for 5 days, I felt ,How much I am attached to you guys. I missed you guys and the blog terribly. I love you all guys.

I have silently,learnt many things from all of you guys through your writings, thoughts.I owe many a things to this blog and you people.Really I mean it.

Meri likhaawat yaa kissee aur cheez se unconsciously, koyee bhool, chhook ho toh mujhe sabhi maaf kar do, Please..

Par itnaa pyaar hameshaa aap sab logon se miltaa rahe, yehi bhagwaan se main maangtaa hoon.

Prakashchandra has indepth knowledge of songs. He knows the differences in the lengths of the audio version and movie version of a particular song. Every single second of the song matters to him. His day is made if one could provide a song link that is a few seconds longer than those available online. Just a few days back, he commented that his sunday was made when I posted a longer audio of a song of “Geet” (1970).

Prakashchandra is not just a lyrics sender. His contributions contain lots and lots of additional information about the movie, songs and artists as well. He is also an expert in identifying old forgotten actors that few people have even heard of. We have seen “CID” TV serial, where every eye witness is able to give a very accurate description of suspects, even though they may have seen them only once and that too for just a few seconds. Prakashchandra is like those “CID” TV serial witnesses with photographic memories. 🙂

Prakashchandra is also aware about Hindi movies that are remakes of South Indian movies and vice versa. His contributions contain lots of such difficult to find nuggets of information.

Prakashchandra tends to be a little unsure of himself and is always very particular to make sure that he does not hurt the feelings of others. He feels that refuting the views of others, providing incorrect information, seeking information, or making suggestions to others would somehow hurt the feelings of others, and so he is a bit apologetic while posting his comments. 🙂

He seeks pardon when he corrects others, and also when he asks for information. While giving information, he mentions that he is “only” 99.9 % sure of his identifications. 🙂 Some regulars would exhort him to be more assertive in such matters. 🙂 He is afraid of hurting the feelings of others even when he is giving a suggestion to them/ complimenting them. 🙂

Prakashchandra also regularly goes through old posts. when he finds something amiss (like say dead links, or incorrect information), he points them out in his comments.

Despite enormous knowledge of HFM and despite his considerable contributions in the blog, Prakashchandra remains humble and self effacing.

Prakashchandra has so far not met any regulars. He may be feeling that other regulars are overachievers and he himself is not. He has been very accurately described as akin to a “Kasturi Mrig” by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia. Just as a Kasturi Mrig is not aware of his own fragrance, Prakashchandra is not aware of his own over achievements in the field of HFM research. I am sure that other regulars, including myself, would count ourselves as lucky when we get to meet the person behind such enormous achievements and abilities.

We in this blog have regulars who are valuable “Ratna” (gems) in the field of HFM appreciation. Each of these individuals brings his/ her own special qualities to the blog and enriches it immensely. Prakashchandra is one of the priceless gems that we in this blog have. His immense knowledge, yet his humility is so heart warming to see. He has sent me lots and lots of contributions and many of them have not yet been covered. Some of his contributions have been covered several years after they were first sent. In addition, some of his contributions were credited to others because others had also sent lyrics of the same songs. Even when Prakashchandra feels hurt on not getting credits for some of the songs that he may have sent, he always remains magnanimous and continues to contribute to the blog with a Yogi like stoicism. These are qualities that are worth emulating, and I must say that I find these qualities highly admirable and I too try to adopt such qualities in my life.

It is a matter of privilege for this blog that Prakashchandra completes 1000 song contributions in the blog with this song. It is a tremendous achievement. He becomes the first among our song contributors to breach the four figure mark.

The 1000th song of Prakashchandra in the blog is from “Kaaran”(1981). This song is sung by Yesudas. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The song is picturised as a romantic background song on Shoma Anand and Raj Kiran.

I, on behalf of the blog take this opportunity to congratulate him and thank him for being with us in this musical journey. I am sure that we will see lots and lots of contributions from him in the future as well. It is a great feather in the cap of Prakashchandra as well as the blog. I am sure that we will continue to have many more such landmarks from our contributors in future as well.

daudke aaye koyee aakar

saawan aag lagaaye rey
tann mann dekho jalaa jaaye rey
sang yaar kaa
rang pyaar kaa
daag kahin naa lag jaaye rey ae
saawan aag lagaaye rey
tann mann dekho jalaa jaaye rey

HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS PRAKASH Ji …!!!
Waiting for next 1000th 🙂

Lovely post Atul ji, and thanks for this post. During a chat with Prakash ji two/three years back he had written about himself to me (not putting it here).
I had also sent him a mail seeking his number and address, when I was regular on touring and anticipating my tours to South, but he didn’t respond to my requests.
I will be happy to see his mail in my inbox for which I am waiting since long 🙂
Thanks,

Thanks Avinash ji for those lovely words

Regards
Prakashchandra

Wow, wow and wow Prakash ji,

Ten centuries of song lyrics. That surely is a big big celebration.

I congratulate you and thank you for your immense contributions. Your efforts to track down missing links, and your immensely useful inputs to so many posts, have really enriched this blog and helped raise its quality to the next level.

We sure do miss not having met you in person, and I hope and pray that such a meeting should happen soon. Inshallaah.

Atul ji,
Thanks so much for devoting this post to this singular contributor. I am sure I speak for all of us when I say that we are proud, nay, we are blessed to have Prakash ji as part of this team.

What a write up – about a person none of us has met so far. 🙂

Sudhir

Thanks Sudhir ji
for those lovely words about me

Aapse aur Atul ji se toh main personally miloongaa zaroor……..par kab ye mujhe hi maaloom nahin………

Regards and love

prakashchandra

Bhai jo khud aapse milna chahte ho aur jinhone apni aisi ichchha prakat ki ho unse bhi ‘personally zaroor’ milna 😊

Avinash ji
Zaroor, Please bura mat maaniye, aap se to milnaa hi hai……..

Main aapke paas hi “aapse milne”,aa jaaoongaa, ek din,
dekhiye ye mera aap se promise hai………

Atul ji,

You said it all for Prakashchandra ji on our behalf.

Hearty congratulations for reaching 1000 lyrics on the Blog, Prakashchandra ji.

Thanks

Sadanand ji

Regards
Prakashchandra

Prakash ji,

Many Congratulations for achieving this extraordinary feat.

I had written an email to your yahoo ID a few weeks back.
Could you please reply.

Mahesh ji
Thanks a lot for your kind words

Regards
Prakash

What a fantastic post on one of our most prolific and most humble Atulites!

Hearty congratulations, Prakashchandraji! 1000 song-lyrics posted here! Just mind-blowing…shows how dedicated you are to our beloved blog here.

So why this elusiveness? Reminded of the song “chhupne waale saamne na, chhup chhup kar mera jee na jalaa….sooraj se kiran, baadal se pavan, kab talak chhupegi ye to bataa”. 🙂

Befitting your name with “Prakash” in it, you throw so much light on so many songs/actors/films here on the blog (poor joke, I know, sorry, could’t resist! 🙂 ).

Jokes apart, thank you SO much for what you bring to the blog. And it’s not just the lyrics (which itself is a very valuable contribution because it saves a lot of time for the person writing the post) – but even all the other things you do for the blog.

For example, I’m always happy to see working videos here – and I know that many of them are working because you’ve checked and provided a working link.

And, like Atul says, you manage to find fuller videos/audios for songs posted here, that enriches each post much more.

So this post, dedicated to you, Prakashchandraji, is fully deserved. Am very glad to read this – excellent post, Atul.

Thanks Raja Sir

for your kind words……..

regards
Prakashchandra

Waiting for next 1000th 🙂”–Avinashji has said.
if i had discovered this post earlier than these people i might have also said some of the words that each of the above have used. but surely i would have fallen flat in writing a post like Atulji has about your nature, and dedication and love and affection for the blog. and just as all the others have said let me also request you for a meeting either individually or at any of the gangouts.
Atulji i loved when you compared PCji with the witnesses of the CID tv serial, and a “Kasturi Mrig”.
And finally i take this occasion to change the earlier epithet/Khitaab bestowed on PCji. let us henceforth call him “Lyrics-King”
A big YYIIPPEEEE!!! on this achievement.
CONGRATULATIONS PCji

Thank you Madam ji

for writing about me, Thanks a lot……….

I will try my level best to attend next meeting, if my father`s health conditon permit me to do so.

Regards

Prakashchandra

all the best to complete your duties towards your father

Prakash ji,

I am late to this party as I was busy in the morning.
Atul ji has written about almost all your qualities and I will have to look for something that is missing.
I feel you are like a shining star in the sky, who is seen by everybody,loved by all, but not met by anyone. To that extent you are still a ‘Virgin’. Virgin meaning here Pure !
I am waiting anxiously when the nearest regular Atulite to you will meet you and report to us. His promise is very much awaited anxiously.
I have no words to describe your contribution to this Blog. Not a single day passes without seeing your presence on these pages.
Only you and Sudhir ji have touched the Big Milestone of 1000 and both are still galloping !
Thank you Prakash ji and looking forward to keep ‘seeing’ you here daily.
Congratulations.
Its not just the figure of 1000, that is important, but the love,intimacy and your attachment to the Blog, that amazes all of us.
Thanks again.
-AD

Prakash ji,
Ek baat to hum aap se kehna bhool hi gaye !
Nahi, hamen kuchh nahi chahiye.
Hum ye chahte hai ke aap hamara bhi number milne ke liye lagwa dijiye.
Varna hamen kehna padega,
Mera number kab aayega ?

-AD

Arun ji

aapka aashirwaad sar aankhon par, Dhanyawaad aapne jo itnaa mere liye likhaa………mere liye iss se badi koyee baat hi nahin hai, ke aap sab log mere well wishers hai….
ke aap log mere liye dil mein itnaa “Regards” rakhthe hain…….

Thanks again

aur ek baat hai,aap se kehne ke liye
aap se toh main hi milna chaahtaa hoon, par mujhe mauka aur samay mil nahin rahaa,kya karoon ???

Regards
Prakashchandra

Prakashchandra,
So you have achieved the milestone after spending nervous-nineties moment. This is stupendous achievement for anybody to be proud of. I can imagine the time and effort gone into writing the lyrics; checking and rechecking them. I am sure you must have improved your Hindi in the process.
Also your knowledge about throwing ‘Prakash’ on the nondescript character artistes of yore is great.
Looking forward to 2k. More strength to your hand. Thanks.

Thanks Nitin ji

Regards
Prakash

Prakashbhai,
Main aajkal ‘door’ bhi hun aur ‘der’ se likh kar aap ko abhinandit kar raha hun. I always wonder at speedy scorers, as I know my speed is like a snail compared to many of you. I do write lyrics of the songs that I present, but leave ‘?s’ when I am stuck deciphering some words and leave them for either Atulbhai or Sudhirbhai to fill up the blanks. I marvel at your huge contribution to this wonderful musical Blog. I have expressed my inabilities as far as writing skill is concerned, and trying hard to put my ideas to words. Thanks Prakashbhai, continue to give us ‘prakash’ and include ME also in your future meetings. ‘Hame naa bhoolana’

Thanks a lot Bharat ji
for your kind words, it means lot to me

Regards
Prakash

Congratulations to Prakashchandra ji for 1000 contributions to posts 👏🏻👏🏻
Great achievement
Aapke prayaason ki jitni taareef ki jaaye utni kam hai.
Hum bhi aapse milne ke talabgaar hain. Ek virtually gangout karna chaahiye aapke saath asli mein to mil hi lenge.
Aapke pitaaji ki sehat ke liye hamari duaayen hamesha saath hain.
Aapki mehnat aur contributions ham sabke liye prernadayak hain.

Thanks Gajendra ji
for your kind words

Regards
Prakash

Different people have different privacy requirements which are shaped by our circumstances and it changes from person to person, often in the same family. For instance, I as well as my wife began our lives as rather shy and private persons (which we still are). With time, we have begun to interact with people because of the nature of our jobs where we must meet people. Our daughter, on the other hand, is an outgoing person right from her childhood unlike the two of us because she had the required self confidence for that from the beginning.

We all love Prakashchandra as can be seen from our views about him. We respect him as well, and that extends to his need for privacy. So let us not put Prakashchandra under undue pressure by our eagerness to meet him in person. Let us respect his privacy as an individual and let him make the decision to meet us based on his comfort level. Let there be no pressure from our side.

PCji, although I am a little late in arriving I had to. Because your achievement is of that magnitude. Congrats!!

I am sure you would continue to contribute in the same manner for years to come 🙂

Thanks Aparna ji

Dear Prakash ji,
I am sorry that I saw this post just now and hence am very late in offering my congratulations to you on your salute-worthy achievement. Atul ji as also other Atulites – Seniors, regular contributors and fellow blog-readers – have already highlighted your virtues and all of them are truly deserving. You are indeed wonderful and we are all grateful to you. I am sure we will continue to be delighted by your contributions.
Thanks a lot, Atul ji, for this lovely post. (I humbly suggest though for your consideration that while referring to an earlier post or song in the write-up, it would be helpful if a hyper-link is also provided. Example: the song from Girls Hostel in the instant post.)
Thanks and regards,
Avadh Lal

Link to “Girl’s Hostel” song is already there in the relevant portion (blue coloured). Here it is again:
