Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Carl Sagan, in his book, ‘Pale Blue Dot’ talks about the picture taken by Voyager I before it left the solar system. Planet Earth, the only home we have known so far appears less than a fraction of a pixel in the picture. It’s on this speck of dust like object in the vast cosmos lived every human, plant and animal we ever know and every civilization.

On this planet the greatest men in a wide variety of fields have left behind their legacies both good and bad. Their lives however great or condemnable have been spent here.  In the vastness of time and space, a few years spent by great men may mean nothing. However, the legacy left behind by such men are recognized and appreciated for generations.

Theatre and entertainment arenas have also seen many a great men and women contribute their art and expertise to mankind. Quite a few are well known and many others are often not credited to the extent to which they should be.

Narrowing down to a movie and further restricting ourselves to Hindi film and non-film songs, the essence of this blog, we are now at the doorsteps of 15 thousand representations.

By these 15k representations, we all have tried to contribute our little efforts in bringing to the fore, the works of film artists – popular, less known and unknown. Amongst the main contributors, the nearly impossible tasks are taken up more experienced and knowledgeable such as Arunkumar ji, Sudhir ji, Sadanand ji etc.  The painstaking efforts in collecting accurate information from various sources and contacts and posting in a concise manner is definitely not an easy task.

Then, there are specialists such as Nalini ji for reminding us of the artist’s anniversaries and Prakash ji for identifying lesser known actors on the screen. Raja ji, whose marathon posts never bore us and we have Avinash ji who pours his heart out in the posts. We have Bharat ji with his expertise and first-hand experience.

There have many others who were more contended with sending only lyrics and a few who keep giving home-works to others. 🙂 A few are more than happy to suggest corrections to the posts and lyrics etc. in the comments section. Then, there are also contributors who vanish for a while and re-appear for special occasions (pun about self intended). 🙂

And, finally we have Atul ji, the fulcrum of our activities and the force that binds us together. Atul ji marches along from one milestone to another. And when he reaches the next milestone, we are all automatically teleported there. 🙂

I never planned for any special song for this occasion. (That again, the leaders will have a plan). But seeing that a great gem of an even greater singer is yet to be posted, I decided to go for his solo.

The singer is Talat Mahmood, of whom quite a lot has already been written on the blog.

My father, an avid fan Talat saab often says that his voice is for royal people. By royal, he means to say people with special taste and I can’t agree with him more. Talat Saab’s melancholic songs sung in blue mood are a class apart, the likes of which one will never get to hear from any other singer.

There are several such songs of Talat Saab which one can hear multiple times and can only admire the grace and dignity in his voice for songs pertaining to even dejection.

The list seems to be endless, but it’s a fact that he sang quite fewer songs compared to his other well-known contemporaries. However, Talat Saab’s voice will always be the triumph of quality over quantity.

The present song which I had not heard in the recent past is also amongst my many favourites of Talat Mahmood. There are stars and the moon in the song in case people are wondering what Carl Sagan had to do with this song in the first place. 🙂 (Kya karein, some starting problems in writing this post)

I pray for the continued longevity on the blog, active participation of all the contributors and readers as well.

Hearty Congratulations to one and all on this great achievement.

Song – Aao Baadal Chain Se Royen (Aawaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – Rajnikant, MD – Dhaniram

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

baa..aadal aa..aaawo

baadal aawo

aawo baadal aawo. . .

aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen
jalti dhoop
jalti dhoop
jalti dhoop mein main hoon akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

khush rahen
khush rahen. . .
khush rahen ye duniya waale
khush rahen ye duniya waale
khatm hua mera mela
khatm hua mera mela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

armaan the dil mein mere kitne
chanda ke
haaye chanda ke saathi taare jitne
haaye chanda ke saathi taare jitne
dooba dil armaan bhi doobe
dooba dil armaan bhi doobe
toofaan ka dekha rela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

din the chaar jo beet gaye mere
din the chaar jo beet gaye mere
honge dukh ke ab derey
honge dukh ke ab derey
darr nahin par hanse bhi kaise
darr nahin par hanse bhi kaise
gham se ab tak khela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

बा॰॰दल आ॰॰आवो

बादल आवो

आवो बादल आवो॰ ॰ ॰

आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
जलती धूप
जलती धूप
जलती धूप में मैं हूँ अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

खुश रहें

खत्म हुआ मेरा मेला

आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

अरमान थे दिल में मेरे कितने
चंदा के
हाए चंदा के साथी तारे जितने
हाए चंदा के साथी तारे जितने
डूबा दिल अरमान भी डूबे
डूबा दिल अरमान भी डूबे
तूफाँ का देखा रेला
मैं हूँ आज अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

दिन थे चार जो बीत गए मेरे
दिन थे चार जो बीत गए मेरे
होंगे दुख के अब डेरे
होंगे दुख के अब डेरे
डर नहीं पर हँसे भी कैसे
डर नहीं पर हँसे भी कैसे
ग़म से अब तक खेला
मैं हूँ आज अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

Thank you Mahesh ji for this post and the song.
I liked the post and this song very much. It was just day before yesterday that I was thinking of song for Talat Saab’s ‘Remembrance Day’ next month and going through my list of songs shared and pending (if any).
I liked the today’s composition very much and especially the lyrics. Singing by Talat Saab is always ‘royal’ 🙂
Thanks again, please keep posting always (without vanishing and re-appearance) 🙂
And, once again, congratulatiins to you and all on ‘Blog 15k milestone celebrations’ !!!

Mahesh ji,

Thanks for the celebration post covering one of the forgotten gems of Talat Mehmood. I heard this song for the first time today and immensely liked it.

From the voice quality of Talat Mehmood in this song, it appears to me that he may have recorded this song sometime in early 1960s. By the time he had sung for ‘Jahan Ara’ (1964), his voice had lost some luster of velvety touch.

This song is picturised on Sudesh Kumar. Video link of the song:

Mahesh ji,
Thanks for this post.
I can not blame you for not posting songs, but certainly the big gaps can be filled in. I know, for a working person it is difficult to take out time for writing on songs for a post here. As I see, you take time to select a song, then the theme of post and some titbits about the film, song or connected matters.
Talat was also one singer whom I adored initially, when he sang under good MDs and gave us his soulful numbers. His LP record “Talat in Blue Mood” was my favourite and I had kept it years after I had no player too.
Please keep coming on the Blog every now and then, so that we dont wonder ‘ where is Mahesh ji ?’
This is one benefit of being attached to the Blog. We all Atulites want to always keep in touch with each other constantly.
Thanks again for this Talat number.

Mahesh sir,

Thanks for this celebration post and “ pale blue dot” is as good point as any to start. Zooming in is all too easy, it is the zooming out which is rare. Naturally no one wants to zoom out and lose focus. But imho, certain amount of zooming in and out is necessary so as to achieve balance of focus and correct perspective. This way the focal point is seen in relation to surrounding things. Logic does tell us that all things are relative. You see, my favourite Talat Mehmood song “ halted hain his ke liye “ is missing from your list

I have learnt a new word today i.e. fulcrum.

Regards.

Talat Mehmood song is “jalte hain Jiska ke liye “ .

Hullo Maheshji
Glad to have you back in the contributors seat. And such melancholic song. And what a voice. Like all the biggies on the blog I am sure my dad would have loved this song. I see four of his favorite talat songs on ur list.
As Avinashji & Guruji have said please make more appearances

Loved the song. When I started reading the article and saw it was your contribution, I was expecting a Mukesh saab song, but was pleasantly surprised with this nice number by Talat saab :).

Nice post Mahesh ji. From space to earth everything was covered and It is befitting that a divine voice was chosen for the song choice. Dhaniram has given good music for the film. Pity he didn’t become mainstream even though he did good work.

Avinash ji,

Thanks comment at lightning speed. I too would like to take another post because there is so much to write on Talat saab. Let me see.

Sadanand ji,

I am surprised as well as happy that I introduced this song to you. Yes , the voice in the song indeed has 50’s touch.

Arunkumar ji,

Thanks for your understanding. I will try to fill up the gaps.

Nahm ji,

Many Thanks for your comment and especially for endorsing Pale Blue Dot. There are many more great renditions of Talat saab. I accept missing the Sujata song. I have discussed about it in my post on Talat saab and Mukesh collaboration. It was probably the first and last time that Talat saab was nominated for filmfare.
Lastly, for a fellow Belgaumite “sir” is not required please.

Nalini ji,

Thanks for your comment. More appearances? Yes, on the anvil.

Pradeep ji,

Thanks. I have in the past also written on Shamshad Begum, Uma Devi, Lata, Rafi, Ghulam Mohammed, etc. A Mukesh post would have required more efforts as I would have to include it in the two ongoing series and prepare tables etc.

Gajendra ji,

Thanks. I have seen that Talat saab has sung great songs for composers which Rafi and Mukesh do not have much representations. Like Mukesh, I had once seriously toyed of taking Talat saab’s composer-wise series, but am unable to do so.
By the way, I was expecting your exclusive post on Shamshad Begum on here centenary or at least a comment on my post because of your great research and dedicated site on her.

Mahesh Ji,
Thanks for joining 15K celebrations. You have nicely and somewhat tongue-in-cheek , categorized blog followers and contributors..
In 1940’s & 1950’s Talat Mohd was a favorite of my uncles and my father. But somewhere he lost out probably due to his efforts to be an actor as well. I continue to listen to him with lots of love. I liked the song you presented in this post. Hearing first time.

These 15K celebration posts and songs are just making me so happy, even if I’m coming late to the party. 🙂

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this post, Maheshji – the reference to planet Earth in relation to the cosmos, and then a reference to those who have given us so much on this little planet of ours – great perspective.

Talat Mahmood is one of my favourite singers – I love many of his songs, and listen to them often. I know the term “silken” for his voice, seems overused – but it is true. It feels like that.

I am fortunate to have been able to attend a live concert of his. It was actually a Shankar-Jaikishen concert, but Talat saab and Manna Dey were the main singers. Though they sang only S-J songs (which means I missed out on a lot, esp of Talat saab), it was still totally worth it. I got to listen to “hai sab se madhur wo geet”, “aye mere dil kahin aur chal”, “andhe jahaan ke andhe raaste” , “hum dard ke maaron ka”, among other songs. I was then about 14 years old – all these songs have stayed with me since.

Thanks for this post, Maheshji. May the blog continue to go from strength to strength – and may we all continue to be part of the journey.
