Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2019. There are a lot of messages being forwarded on WhatsApp and other social media platforms urging the reader to enjoy the last TEEN year in a long time to come, after this the new millennium will be on the threshold of adulthood (India has 21 as the official age at which a person is considered an adult).

Here is the first birthday post for the month. Let us all wish the “raunaq e blog”- titled bestowed on the recipient two years ago on this date- a very Happy Birthday. May she be forever healthy happy cheerful and full of life, as she has been described by Atulji and Sudhirji in their posts in the blog.

I have not gone looking for hitherto unposted Talat Mehmood songs as Atulji had suggested two years back but went with my regular practice of mixing this birthday girl with the flamboyant, evergreen, forever PACHCHEES (25) actor of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who was forever hyperactive. And going by what the two Sutradhars of our blog have written, our birthday gal sounds to be ‘hyperactive’ and may she be forever PACHCHEES or shall I say “Aththara” (18). Wish you a very happy birthday Ben Katie a.k.a Khyatiben. Lets us have a great time today on your birthday. Let the music begin and play through the day from this end of the globe to your end.

tum jiyo hazaaron saal saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar,
sau saal jiyo tum jaan meri , or the evergreen baar baar din ye aaye.
Let all these and other birthday songs available here and elsewhere be played on loop (as kids we used to say rewind and replay the cassette). Let our dear birthday gal choose a song she likes; we shall play that too on LOOP.

Today we also remember Raju “Guide” on his 8th Remembrance Day with a song that showcases him with his typical mannerisms which I feel he adopted after around 30-35 years in the industry. That typical nod, crooked smile that made ladies go weak at the knees (or was that smile always a killer) etc. This is from the 1982 release “Swami Dada” which was produced and directed by Dev Anand and had a large cast. The ladies in the movie were Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure (she was still a teenager), Urmila Bhatt, Sushma Seth, Naaz, Christine O’Neil, Beena, Baby Khushboo etc. The male cast was headed by Dev Anand, Mithun Chakravarty, Naseeruddin Shah, Shakti Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tom Alter, Bharat Kapoor, Sudhir etc, this was Jackie Shroff’s first credited screen appearance playing Shakti Kapoor’s confidant.

The first song from this movie was posted exactly seven years back for the same occasion; at that time, I had found this on IMDB.com –

Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

On revisiting imdb I found a little more to go with the above –
Dev Anand is one of the tapori gang, handled by Kulbhushan Kharbanda. He escapes to Western country, only to come back and see that the members of the gang living in same conditions. He, himself have become a spiritual person. Named Swami. In order to break the gang, Dev poses himself as Ringo Dada. Hence the name Swami Dada
Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

“Swami Dada” had music by RD Burman and Anjaan was the lyricist. The playback for today’s song is by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar.
Thinking of the style icon, winner of Dadasaheb Phalke award (2002), Padma Bhushan (2001), and three-time filmfare award recipient one of which was the life-time achievement in 1993, and a darling of the masses for nearly sixty years who is still an inspiration and will remain one for generations to come thanks to the legacy he has left behind. I am not trying to describe the kind of movies he was associated with or anything about his biography here. Let us just get on to the song.


Song-Galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani (Swaami Dada)(1982) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

paanch ke note mein ab kya dam hai

ho o o dus ka note cigarette ko bhi kam hai
ho o ab hare note ka mol hai kya
socho kuchh oonchi baat zara
ab baat karo toh laakhon ki
dekhenge khwaab karodon ke

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho o ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

aaj sanwar ke dekha jo darpan
apni nazar se sharma gayi ee
kiske hunar ka chal gaya jaadoo
kahaan thi kahaan se kahaan aa gayi
ho mera haar

iss heere ke haar mein kya hai
apna mol toh aanko
tum kya ho kya ban sakte ho
apne dil mein jhaanko
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
asli baat na jaani ho o o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani

mil ke mere saath chalo toh
woh duniya dikhlaoon
jeete ji woh jannat kaise
milti hai batlaoon

tumko masheeha maan liya hai
ab jaana hai aur kahaan aan
tumse mile toh dekhe ujaale
varna dhuaan thhe donon jahaan
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
ho duniya ko hairaani ho o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

Thanks for this post Peevesie’s Mom ji , and belatedly wishing (on the blog, & in comments) Khyati Ben a very happy birthday and a healthy, peaceful, musical, joyful life ahead.
I like this song very much and other songs from this movie ‘Swami Dada-1982’. I had been listening to the songs from this movie, but this is the first time (I think) I watched a video of one of its songs.
Thanks again,

One correction –
Para 7th (or para beginning with “Hari Mohan is a saintly person…”) is again repeated at as para no.9 which needs to be deleted.
Kindly correct please.

regards,

hullo Avinashji
just saw that you had commented here. thank you.
first time i wrote about “Hari Mohan” was a connection to the post with the previous song, i have mentioned it too. and second time i wrote was, what i found recently on IMDB.com which i reproduced here and mentioned that i had revisited IMDB
that is the reason why there is a repeat of “Hari Mohan is a saintly person”
