Ah so, another station that we reach. Not especially for the blog, but a pervasive tradition. Ringing out an old temporal symbol, and ringing in a new one. On the astronomical scale, this celebration does not mean anything specific. Like any other measure of time, like any other day closing and like any other day initiating. But for the human spirit – it seeks celebration, in whatever. An arbitrary spike in the ground and one can endlessly argue that this very point is the center of the earth. Ah well, how does it matter. Let us celebrate.

Coming to think of it, the celebration is phasing, crossing over into every time zone, as the midnight hour passes across the latitudes. So even this is not unique to the entire earth. We have a message on WA group few minutes back, from Peevesie’s Mom – checking whether any Atulite is in Japan or Auckland. In fact by the time we reach the midnight hour in India, eight full time zones have already crossed into the next annuity, and the celebrations are already on, the earliest one being about 8/9 hours old already. As I write these lines, Auckland is already at 6:15 am in the first day of the New Year. (Time check – it is 10:45 as I type this sentence). And once we in India cross over into 2020, it will still take another 18 hours for the midnight to reach the western edge of the International Date Line. Those who celebrate with a drink, I am sure, will not mind to have drink for every passage of a time zone crossing the midnight. 🙂 🙂

The time flows, as is, all the time. Another milestone, another celebration passes by. The revelry lasts for some time, maybe a few hours, and then the world gets back to its grinding routine. Some working places may be enjoying a holiday. Many more will not be – they will be working. I do personally know some people who prefer not to start a new year with a holiday. Inauspicious, they say.

The tradition continues. The Hindi film song community is probably not going to run out of celebration songs. New ones are being created every year, and yes, there still are decades that we have not explored as yet. Many celebration songs of all types are awaiting discovery, and a chance to be put on to our blog. The song in this post is from the 1980s – yes one of the earliest decades that we generally avoid, sticking to the 1960s and prior to find songs for posting. That is where our comfort zone is, that is where our preferences lie. A reflection of what we hear in our formative years, maybe. Newer generations will have their own baseline benchmarks. Ah well.

Our dear Prakash ji – he is so prolific is browsing and searching for event specific songs. At every anniversary and every occasion to celebrate, Atul ji and I keep getting reminder emails from him, telling us about earlier songs that he has sent in, and we have not been able to post. Sometimes these reminders have kept ringing for three – four – five years.

Today’s new year song sent in by him is from the 1985 film ‘Telephone’ – a film that I am not familiar at all with. But surely a new discovery I make as I sat through the video of this song. I got to see a different side of Deepti Naval. Her image is built around films like ‘Ek Baar Phir’ (1980), ‘Chasm e Baddoor’ (1981), ‘Saath Saath’ (1982), ‘Angoor’ (1982) and ‘Katha’ (1983). Maybe that was the time as I was phasing out of watching the newer crop of films.

The song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. It is a lyricist-MD song with Rajesh Roshan playing both the songwriter and music director roles. Of course, it is a party song, with a lot of actors visible in the clip. The song is being lip synced by Deepti Naval and Leena Das, with the latter providing the more provocative masala performance. Then we have Marc Zuber, Yunus Parvez, Prem Chopra and Shatrughan Sinha appearing. As per Prakash ji,the dancer Shirley is also part of the dancing troupe in this song.

Wishing all readers and their families, a very very happy 2020.  Stay healhty, stay blessed.

A Happier, healthier and more peaceful 2020 to all at Atuldom.

Dear Sudhirji,

While the Prime Meridian is a straight line (now lies a few metres to the east of the original zero degrees at Greenwich), the International Date Line is a crazy line, zig zagging all over the place. While there is an International Law governing the Prime Meridian, there is no such convention re: the 180 degrees meridian, see the link below :

Time Zones at the International Date Line

Spare a thought for the people of LINE ISLANDS shown in the Map. They are practically surrounded by the Date Line – they don’t know if they are coming or going!

For those taking pride in the Ancient History of India, there was a time when the Prime Meridian passed through the City of Ujjain, when the Tropic of Cancer also passed through that City. As we know, the Tropic of Cancer (an imaginary line) keeps shifting due to the oblique rotation of the earth. The earth completes one “wobble” in 26000 years. Pl see Video below :

The next time the Tropic of Cancer will pass through Ujjain will be in the year 4250 AD, when it is hoped, India will shine again and the Prime Meridian will once again pass through Ujjain.

For those not in the know, Indian Astrologers still swear by Ujjain Standard Time in all their calculations and charts (it is 9 minutes behind IST).

Dear Atulji and Sudhirji, you’ll excuse me for digressing – all this has nothing to do with Music.

Although there are countless Bhajans dedicated to Ujjain and Mahakal.

With warm regards

PARTHA CHANDA
