Blog Day : 3509 Post No. : 14100

Every morning I walk my pets by turns. That is a good time for thinking and getting interesting thoughts. I realised that our blog centuries (when they are taking place at their normal pace) are like lunar months. In the past, we would complete our centuries in 15-16 days which was like one paksh of a lunar month. Nowadays we are taking nearly twice as long to complete a century. In other words, our centuries these days take as long as a lunar month. In other words, these days we are getting one century post per month.

It is different this month. In this month of february 2018, we had touched post number 14000 on the very first day. Today, towards the fag end of february 2018, we reach the next century, viz 14100th post in the blog. It is rare to have two full moons in one month and that has led to the phrase “once in a blue moon”. January 2018 was a blue moon month as far as two full moons were concerned. February 2018 is a “once in a blue moon” month for the blog as far as appearance of two century posts is concerned. When I checked up, I found that the last time we had two century posts in a month was in april 2017. 🙂

Whenever one is dealing with big numbers, one cannot help but devise some statistical tools to judge one’s performance. In limited overs cricket, we have strike rate. In this blog, I have devised a term called blog strike rate. Blog strike rate is nothing but the number of songs per day. One can divide the number of song posts by the number of days in which these posts appeared. We are going at a strike rate of just over 4 songs a day throughout the existence of the blog.

Then there are other interesting statistical analysis that are possible. For instance, number of songs that were created in a year and the number of songs from that year that are covered in the blog. Another variation is number of movies that were released in a year and the number of movies of that year that are represented in the blog. For instance, the year 1964 had 99 movies and 671 songs. The blog has 90 of these movies and 422 of these songs represented in the blog. 44 of these movies are already YIPPEED. So 46 up YIPPEED movies plus nine unrepresented movies from 1964 remain to be covered in the blog.

Covering the as yet unrepresented songs may not be as simple and straightforward as it may appear to the uninitiated. For instance, the nine missing movies of 1964 are rare movies. Sudhir Jee is on a mission to cover the missing movies of 1960s. In two years and three months he has covered more than 60 missing movies of 1960s in the blog. There were 929 movies released in 1960s. As many as 808 of them are covered in the blog with 361 of them already YIPPEED. So just over one hundred movies of 1960s are yet to be covered in the blog. We are making progress regularly. Still a stage will come when we will end up a few movies and a few hundred songs short because of unavailability of the remaining movies and /or songs. In all some 6521 songs were created in 1960s. The blog has 3488 of them. Just over 3000 songs of 1960s remain to be covered.

The decade of 1950s is the most well represented in the blog. 1111 movies are 8654 songs were created during this decade. The blog has 996 movies and 4627 songs represented in the blog, with 348 of these movies already YIPPEED.

Another statistics that is of great interest to me is the number of artists represented in the blog.The lyricists, singers and music directors represented in the blog add up to over 2000. The number of artists on whom these songs were picturised, or who helped create these movies also add up to a considerable number.

Well known artists find considerable representation in the blog. In addition, the blog also gives coverage and recognition to artists who are lesser known and even obscure.

This century songs seeks to recognise the contribution of one of the lesser known artist. This artist is Johny Whisky. This name is obviously inspired from Johny Walker. Johny Whisky (8 february 1932- 7 december 2006), originally named Sheikh Zennul Abdeen, has figured in bit roles in lots of movies starting from 1960s till 1990s. He worked in bit roles and he was too insignificant an actor unlike Johny Walker who tended to have at least one song earmarked for himself in ever movie. Still, Johny Whisky’s voice has been used in a few songs. Johny Whisky got to lend his voice in a song in “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo” (1963), viz. Chal chal chal mere dil and in a song in “Anjaam”(1968) viz. Mubaarak ho tumko ye jungle puraana.

The song under discussion is one where Johny Whisky is the main singer. Johny Whisky plays a eunuch who in India tend to look for houses with newborns. They would reach that house armed with dholaks and sing “badhaai”. That is the main occupation of this third gender in India.

The song is a “badhaai” song which is sung by Johny Whisky and chorus. Though only the audio is availabble, but it is clear that the song is picturised on Johny Whisky and others playing “hijdas”. Though this song is mentioned as a traditioan song, Sahir Ludhianvi is credited as the lyricist of this song in Akshay Manwani’s ‘Sahir Ludhianvi- The People’s Poet’.

Music is composed by C Arjun.

This song is the fifth and final song from the movie so this doubles up as the YIPPEE movie of the day as well.

Here are the details of the earlier songs from the movie covered in the blog.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Mubarak ho o
Salaamat raho o
Kahaan chale gaye sab log
Dholak nikaalo
Shurru karo

Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi

Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
salaamat baadi gaane aayi
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
Salaamat baadi gaane aayi

Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi

Chandan ka palnaa laayi
aur
Resham ki dori laayi

Kurta aur topi laayi
Aur ?? laayi
Dena sarkaar more
Manmaange muraad paayi
Dena sarkaar more
Manmaange muraad paayi

Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi

Haaye ek ruppalli
Haaye
Haaye

Inke Khaalu
Daiyya re daiyya
Inki Maami
Daiyya re daiyya
Unke chaacha
Daiyya re daiyya
Bachcha jachcha pe shobhe
Heera moti panna jaise
Chaand ke aas paas
Taaramandal chamke jaise
Dena sarkaar more
Manmaange muraad paayi
Haan
Dena sarkaar more
Manmaange muraad paayi

Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi
Ladke ki aaj main
Mubaarak baadi dene aayi

O koi filmi gaana sunaao na

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this song – never heard it before.
Btw, Johnny Whisky was one of the performers at the Shankar Jaikishen nite that I attended way back in 1978. While the singers were Talat Mahmood, Manna Dey, Sharada, Usha Timothy and some others, Johnny Whisky was part of the show.
