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

Gaaye Jaa Tu Geet Suhaane, Kaun Kisi Ke Mann Ki Jaane

The most common milestone in this blog is century of songs in the blog. Then we also have some associated milestones viz centuries by artists, contributors etc.

After this blog touched the five figure mark of songs on 20 july 2014, some of the regulars began to point out some “special” numbers that the blog was approaching. Though not round figures like centuries, these numbers held arithmetic significance and we in the blog decided to associate these numbers with special writeups.

The first of such “artificial” milestones was post number 11111. We marked the occasion by discussing a special song where as many as five artists completed their individual centuries in the blog with the same song.

The next such “artificial” milestone was post number 12345. Some regulars kept reminding Sudhir Jee and me about this milestone. We kept up a brave face telling everyone that we were aware of the special occasion. In reality we were all at sea to decide what song to discuss on that special occasion. Just at the nick of time, Sudhir Jee hit upon an ingenious idea and discussed a special song that had one lyricist, two music directors, three singers, which was piturised on four actors and this song appeared in the movie five times !

That done, we heaved a sigh of relief thinking that the next “artificial” special number was far off. We were mistaken. Mr Avadh Lal, a musically cum mathematically inclined regular suggested that the next “special” number was just round the corner. This number was 12357- all prime numbers.

If chosing a suitable song for post number 12345 was a challenge then chosing a song for post number 12357 turned out to be an even tougher challenge. How Sudhir Jee managed to pull off the feat of posting a song for post number 12357 is something that I have not understood even to this date.

Now, more than 1200 songs later, we arrive at another magic number, or a honky tonk number, as Sudhir Jee puts it. 13579 is the mumber, consisting of all odd numbers in ascending order.

Unlike the earlier honky tonk numbers, I am surprised (and somewhat relieved) to realise that the regulars of the blog have not noticed that we are approaching this number and as a result we have not received any reminders for this special number.

Unlike the songs that we found for the earlier three honky tonk numbers, finding a “suitable” song number 13579 is a tall order and I was quite unable to come up with a suitable and justifiable idea that our wise readers would find plausible and believable.

After giving the matter some thought, I realised that the ideas used for earlier occasions were not applicable in this case and we needed to come up with some original ideas.

After toying with some unpractical ideas, I thought up this idea that this post needed to be somehow associated with DMY format, viz 13-5-79.

So, I scanned google to find out if I could get some film personalities that were either born on 13-5-79 or they died on this date. I drew a blank. I came to know that the crown prince of an European nation was born on this date but no personality who could be even remotely associated with HFM was born on this date, nor did someone die on this date on that year.

There was one actress who was born on this date in a later year, but this blog is a U rated blog and so I would be very hesitant to have to do anything with her on this blog. 🙂

I also came to know that ‘Mr Natwarlal’ was released on 14 may 1979 (if it is correct), so it narrowly missed being a movie with 13-5-79 connection, not that it would have helped though, seeing that all songs from this movie have already been covered.

So, I decided that I needed to get some HFM related personality who has something to do with 13 may and hope that he/ she had something to do with the figure 79 as well.

A little search on our anniversary page revealed that two singers namely Utpala Sen and A R Oza had died on 13 may, though on years other than 1979. Did any of them die at the age of 79. If yes, then that would clinch the issue. Very little information is available on A R Oza, and whatever is avilable is contained in this very blog, thanks to the article by our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh. Going through his articles revealed that the date and year of birth of A R Oza is not available. So he is ruled out.

When I checked up the dates for Utpala Sen, I found that she was born on 12 March 1924 and she died on 13 May 2005 at the age of 81.

So I began to think of a combination. Let Utpala Sen supply 13-5 component of the jigsaw. Let the other portion of the jigsaw, viz 79 be supplied by someone who is associated with Utpala Sen in a Hindi movie song.

On checking up, I realised that Utpala Sen has sung very few Hindi movie songs (may be 15 or 16) and most of them are already covered in the blog. She sang most of these songs with Pankaj Mullick and all available songs of this combination are already covered.

I found that Utpala Sen had sung in ‘Wasiyatnama’ (1945) under the baton of RC Boral. Could RC Boral supply the other half of jigsaw ? I checked his biodata. He was born on 19 October 1903 and he died on November 1981. So he was just over 78 years of age. What a narrow miss ! Or was it ? If one counts the number of calendar years that RC Boral saw in his lifetime, he saw a total of 79 calender years ! So there is the other half of the jigsaw puzzle, nicely getting dovetailed with the other half with a satisfying sound !

‘Wasiyatnaama’ (1945), by now a forgotten movie, was directed by Soumen Mukherji for New Theatres, Calcutta. The movie had Asit Baran, Sumitra Devi, Bharati, Latika Bannerji, Ahindra Chaudhary, Hiralal, Devi Mukherji, Shor, Tandon, Natwar, Tulsi etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it and two of these songs are covered in the blog.

This third song from the movie, which is the 13579th song post for the blog, is sung by Utpala Sen and it is composed by RC Boral. The song is penned by Zakir Hussain and no details are available for him, so he was in any case of little use to us in our search for our magic numbers.

Here is this special song post for the blog. This song, like most such songs, is quite a rare song.

So, my dear readers of this song, here is song post number 13579 in the blog. Enjoy !

And hopefully this takes care of our honky tonk numbers for the near forseeable future. Phew, this was close ! 🙂

[Ed Note: In the second antaraa, the word ‘mrigya’ (मृग्या) is a modified form of the word ‘mrig-trishna’ (मृग तृष्णा), which translates to ‘mirage’ in English. It is the optical illusion created in the deserts, which makes the travellers and also animals in the desert, see things, especially water, at a distance, even though it is not actually there.]


Song – Gaaye Jaa Tu Geet Suhaane, Kaun Kisi Ke Mann Ki Jaane (Wasiyatnama) (1945) Singer – Utpala Sen, Lyrics – Zakir Hussain, MD – RC Boral

Lyrics

gaaye jaa tu geet suhaane
gaaye jaa tu geet suhaane
kaun kisi ke man ki jaane
haan jaane jaane
kaun kisi ke man ki jaane
gaaye jaa tu geet suhaane
suhaane

deepak ka hai kaam jalaana
deepak ka hai kaam jalaana
aur patange ka jal jaana
jal jaana
aur patange ka jal jaana
is mein kya hai dosh kisi ka
is mein kya hai dosh kisi ka
marne ke hain laakh bahaane
marne ke hain laakh bahaane
kaun kisi ke man ki jaane
haan jaane jaane
kaun kisi ke man ki jaane

jagmag jagmag ret jo chamke
mrigya jal ki lahren damken
jagmag jagmag ret jo chamke
mrigya jal ki lahren damken
kaisa hai ye sundar dhokha
aa aa aa
kaisa hai ye sundar dhokha
aa aa aa
aag se jaaye pyaas bujhaane
aag se jaaye pyaas bujhaane
kaun kisi ke man ki jaane
haan jaane jaane
kaun kisi ke man ki

गाये जा तू गीत सुहाने
गाये जा तू गीत सुहाने
कौन किसी के मन की जाने
हाँ जाने जाने
कौन किसी के मन की जाने
गाये जा तू गीत सुहाने
सुहाने

दीपक का है काम जलाना
दीपक का है काम जलाना
और पतंगे का जल जाना
जल जाना
और पतंगे का जल जाना
इस में क्या है दोष किसी का
इस में क्या है दोष किसी का
मरने के हैं लाख बहाने
मरने के हैं लाख बहाने
कौन किसी के मन की जाने
हाँ जाने जाने
कौन किसी के मन की जाने

जगमग जगमग रेत जो चमके
मृग्या जल की लहरें दमकें
जगमग जगमग रेत जो चमके
मृग्या जल की लहरें दमकें
कैसा है ये सुंदर धोखा
आ आ आ
कैसा है ये सुंदर धोखा
आ आ आ
आग से जाये प्यास बुझाने
आग से जाये प्यास बुझाने
कौन किसी के मन की जाने
हाँ जाने जाने
कौन किसी के मन की

Very interesting ‘jigsaw’ post Atul ji !!
Thanks for this rare song and the post too !!!

Atul ji,

Hats off sir, for securing this Honky Tonk post. A very interesting and innovative solution. 🙂 I have been distracted for some time now, and so missed the onset of this post no.

And a wonderful song too, hearing for the first time.

By the way, what is our next Honky Tonk target? :D)

Next such number, according to ME is very far. It is square of each digit 12345. That will be 14977.
1 (1×1), 4 (2×2), 9 (3×3), 7 (4×4=16 & 1+6=7), 7 (5×5=25 and 2+5=7)
(that also proves that I DID learn simple multiplications and adding, in my pre-school)

hey that is an interesting number Mahaguruji….. i think you are a guru in mathematics too.
namaskaar karti hoon

my god what a struggle to make 13579 special Atulji. you are a genius. simply too good
