In olden days, viz 1970s and prior to that, people, including kids, would wake up at 6 AM and would go to bed at 9 PM. There were elders who would managed to awake till about 10 PM or so. I, as a kid, found it extremely difficult to keep my eyes open after 9:30. Vividh Bharti those days used to have a radio programme called Hawamahal. As soon as I heard the signature tune of this programme, my eyelids would begin to get heavy and I would feel sleepy. This signature tune was more sleep inducing for me that any lullaby ever would be. 🙂 . For those who have not heard the signature song of “Hawamahal”, here is how it sounded like:

If you could somehow manage to keep your eys open till the end of hawamahal, then that programme was follwed by Chaayaageet programme at 10 PM. Most people were already asleep by that time, listening to the songs at nights with no other sound audible, with moonlight lighting the streets, it was an experience worth savouring. I as a kid did not get to listen to the songs of this programme much, because the songs of this programme were “old” songs that I did not like and moreover I would already be fast asleep by that time. But when I remember those days, I realise that the songs played in this programme were just perfect songs to be listened to, late at night.

I in this blog have classified certain songs as “Chaayaageet” songs. These are songs that are best heard at nighttime, when most people are asleep.

“Kaala Chor”(1956) was produced by Anoop Kwatra and directed by Ravi Kapoor for J H Films, Bombay. The movie had Chitra, Amarnath, Kumkum, Sundar, Madan Puri, Randheer, Amrit Rana, Indira, Manjeet, Iqbal Mishra, Panditji, Jerry, Shafiq, Uma Dutt etc in it. The movie had seven songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is a “Chaayaageet” genre of song from “Kaala Chor”(1956). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardul Kwatra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get one word (may be more) right in the lyrics of this song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.
