Welcome all to this post which comes after a long gap. I call it a ‘Long gap’ because this post was conceived by me ‘long back’ like many other posts of mine which remained unfinished aften getting started due to various reasons.

My last post on the blog was on 20th November. It was posted when I going through some health-related issues. I had to visit a Hospital in Nairobi, which is around 125 kms from my base station. Since some tests were to be conducted, I had to stay in Nairobi for four days. I stayed with colleagues working there in the Head Office. That didn’t allow me to concentrate on posts though I continued listening to music and watching songs. I even kept reminding our authors about movies that were falling under the ‘blog-ten-year challenge’.

The visit to the Hospital and Doctor made me recall many Hindi movies that had stories woven around ‘medical profession or serious medical complications’ (or diseases, if it is the right word?).

This time I had to specially visit ‘Dil Ka Doctor’. Its English translation ‘cardiologist’ has entirely different connotations from the Hindi word. This offers me material for a separate post provided I came across a suitable song to go with that proposed article.
.
T was another Doctor in India (in ‘Atulites WhatsApp’ group) who was already aware about my ‘dil ka haal’, and was already providing me guidance on the symptoms so that ‘I can bounce back’ without thinking that ‘beemaari ho to aisi ho jiska naam kisi Viceroy se kam naa lage’:)😊

The tests were conducted and results were awaited after two days (due to weekend holidays), I had realized that the problem was not serious and everything was going to be ok. The worries were mainly ‘Beemari ka shaq’like Doctor Kulkarni’s ‘Main usi shaq ka ilaaj karta hoon’, and hence the ‘tests’:)

Finally, the results were ‘declared’ and everything was well in order except a minor ‘Blood Pressure’ on the higher side. I thanked both the Doctors!!!

The movie of today’s song has a storyline around ‘Doctors’ or medical profession. But today’s post has nothng to do with that. This covers an an entirely different story behind it.

People of different generations have different taste for music and naturally everybody’s musical nostalgia keeps growing according to the surroundings they grow in and/or even the circumstances they live in (I think so).

Music lovers have their musical nostalgia, which depends on factors like the generation/ backgrounds/ circumstances in which they grow up. This musical nostaligia gets triggered up whenever they are reminded of those days.

Sometimes, people of different generations/ background/ circumstances pass on their brand of musical nostalgia to another (viz younger generation) music lovers. This results in the curious situation when music lovers in their teenns or twenties start loving vintage era music created during the times of his forefathers.

People coming in contact with me are slowly coming to know about my love for Hindi songs and Hindi movies. Some of them who become close friends have also come to know about our blog and my activities for the blog.

Assuming that you are considered a music lover, sometimes people approach you with their music related query. A query , that can stump even music “experts” is when we are asked to tell the details of a song whose details are known only partially or vaguely.

Most of the times I am able to provide the details or answer mkost of the time, but sometimes the challenge is quite tough.

For instance, take the example of a song which someone has heard but he remembers very few details of the song. And hewants you to find that song for him, without providing the usual details about mukhda of the song, or its tune, the artists, or the movie. Only thing he can tell is that this song is picturised on a ‘lady wearing white-blue saree and singing with some ladies sitting around a sea-beach or kisi nadi ke kinaare?

With such sketchy details, you are asked to find the song, because you claim to be a music expert songs and movies? You are also challenged and mocked that if you cannot find this song then
you should not talk about songs of movies 🙂 , chhod do gaane sun’na aur filmon ki baatein karna 😊 .

Anybody in my place would feel like my honour is at stake, and would definitely give this challenge a serious try, so I did …

It happened on one such week-end get together on Saturday evening here in the camp (where we are staying in Kenya). We regularly have such get togethers. If the get together is big and the occasion so demands, then listening to songs and even dancing becomes customary. This calls for a separate detailed post in future. 😊

It was in one such get together that our friend a QC guy, fifteen years younger to me challenged me when we were enjoying listening to songs. This guy wanted me to find a song for him. He must have watched this song on TV somewhere. What he remembered of it was that it is sung by a lady in ‘blue-white saree’ with ‘some ladies sitting around a ‘river bank’ or ‘sea-beach’ (he was not sure).

This guy who was born in early 1980s had one favourite Hindi song.

Guess which?

‘Do ghoont mujhe bhi pilaa de o saaki dekh phir hota hai kya’

He had listened to this song somewhere while he was with his friend on a long drive and since then this song was the most liked Hindi song for him. He is from Andhra so he is not aware of that much of Hindi songs, except few like the above. And, whenever there is a party, he would ask us to play this song so that he can enjoy it 🙂

We are aware that this song is from the movie ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ and the year of the movie is 1973 🙂 (and surprisingly this song has not been posted yet on the blog 🙂 )

Now given the challenge, I had to find him this song lip synced by a lady with a blue or white saree, so I was looking for hints. 🙂

The first song that readily came to my mind was the title song from ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ and the second thing I made up in my mind was that the song he was looking for must be a ‘haunting song’ or somewhat sad song like ‘naa koi umang hai’ so I started searching on YouTube by entering terms like ‘woman singing a song near sea-beach, river’, woman in white saree singing a song, heroine singing along river bank, sea-beach etc etc

I was sure that the song this guy was looking for must be a ‘haunting song’ (and not his fault though) because I know ‘gham ke chhod ke manaao rang raili’ was not in a white saree, then I thought white saree means should be a widow singing a song or like that.

After browsing couple of songs like ‘naina barse’ I turned to the songs of ‘Mera Saaya’ and ‘Anita’. Now, searching in YouTube has an advantage of suggestions appearing according to your search. (And over the years I have also learnt entering ‘out of the box’ search terms to find a song, it had successfully worked many times 🙂 )

And there with the songs of Anita in the suggestions I found this song …

Can you guess this song my friend was looking for was ‘sun ri pawan, pawan purvaiyya’…

My friend bowed to me, but I told him my friend it is not a white saree song but a blue saree with white border song !!

But I must admit that while my friend was correct in mentioning the scenario. It was I who interpreted it wrong and I was searching with wrong terms and still landed on the right song …

Also, he never mentioned that the song he was looking for is where the heroine is making a ‘baalu ka ghar’ (sand home 🙂 or is it a ‘mud-home’?) on the sea-beach.

Incidentally both the songs that my friend likes are the songs where the heroine is blind.

And our team member Pam Harvey has on his blog covered some blind women songs from Hindi movies in his article here.

And finally, the song we were looking for was a ‘happy song’ instead of a ghost song or haunting song which I presumed it should be.

For today’s post I am presenting a song which I think fits with the theme which I imagined was the theme for song my friend was looking for. 🙂

This song is from the 1980 movie ‘Bandish’, and it is performed on screen by Hema Malini where she is trying to ‘trap’ Rajesh Khanna by posing as a ‘bhatakti aatma’.

I remember to have watched this movie in our colony club during regular weekly screening may be in 1982-1983, I think.

‘Bandish-1980’ was directed by K. Bappaiah for ‘Suresh Productions, Madras’. It was produced by D. Rama Naidu. It had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Danny, Om Prakash, Asrani, Jeevan, Om Shivpuri, Madan Puri, Mohan Choti, Pinchoo Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, Maruti, Yousuff, Ranveer, Umesh Khanna, Prem Kumar, Dharmesh, Vijay Kumar, Shashiraj, Ganesh Nagpal, Raj Baldev Raj, Vijay Kumar, Kiron, Bedi, Pradeep Jain, Bindiya Goswami, Nalini Jaywant, Manorama, Preeti Ganguly and Tanuja, Padmini Kapila, Vakkalanka Padma, Ashoo, Munni.

Story of this movie was written by V.C. Kuganathan. K.A. Marthand was the Chief Editor of this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.10.1980.

The movie had five songs composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lyrics of all the songs were written by Anand Bakshi.

So far only one song from this movie – ‘Rang bhare mausam se rang churaa ke’ has been posted on the blog and that was on 04.08.2011.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Incidentally there was only one Lata song – solo song – in this movie and this song is the one being presented here today.

(PS: recently there was a comment by Peevesie’s Mom ji regarding this ‘song searching or finding a song type issue which I am forgetting where it was, though I had noted the point earlier for this post 😊 )

Avinash ji,
Not at all to scare you. But, as a doctor, I should point out there is nothing ‘ minor ‘ about the B P being a little on the higher side. Of course, you will be absolutely normal with medication. But, be aware we should not consider it as ‘ minor’.
I thought twice before typing lest you should take it too seriously. But, kya karen,
Dil hai ke maanta nahin! 😀♥️😀

Thank you Sir, and thanks for the guidance well on ‘right time’ that day, because I think with due care now at least I can improve and take more care in future. I will take care and I am not at all taking it ‘too lightly’ 🙂
thanks again,

“Main usi shaq ka ilaaj karta hoon’, and hence the ‘tests’:)”

kya kehene, this kind of connection — true “Anand” fan
“This song is from the 1980 movie ‘Bandish’, and it is performed on screen by Hema Malini where she is trying to ‘trap’ Rajesh Khanna by posing as a ‘bhatakti aatma’.”
this Hema Malini who is called chanchal is “naataking” and her tiny village- friends build the atmosphere.

“minor ‘Blood Pressure’ on the higher side” BP ko sambhalne ke liye biwi ko bulalo sab control ho jaayega.
jokes apart, please follow what Doctorsaab has said. Relax- music is the best medicine along with laughter, meditation and medication. take care
