This article is the 15900th song post for the blog

Blog Day :

4447 Post No. : 15900

So we reach another blog century with this post. This century materializes in 39 days, which appears like a fast century vis a vis the previous eleven centuries that took an average of 61 days each. These eleven centuries were took nearly two years (from August 2018 till July 2020). If we look at the rate of centuries ten years ago, then we had achieved a blog century on 20 september 2010 as well. That was the 30th century for the blog and that had been achieved in 17 days flat !. Eleven centuries (viz 20th century to 30th century were achieved at an average rate of 33 days per century.

The quickest rate of centuries were achieved during 2011 and 2012. Calendar year of 2012 saw 21 blog centuries, a record not surpassed since ! These 21 centuries were achieved at an average rate of one century every 18th day !

When I try to think about the by now barely believable rate of posts and centuries in the past, I can pinpoint a few reasons. And I also learn a few lessons from them.

Ten years ago, I was ten years younger. at that stage in my life, I was perhaps at the most productive and creative stage of my life. My enery level and motivation level were on a different plane. I also realise that my eyesight was still good and I did not need glasses to read fine prints. It was sometime in 2011 that I began to realise that my eyesight was going downhill. That is when I needed glasses for the first time. With that being the case, it was no longer possible for me to pore over the computer screen with the same comfort as before. This may be one reason why I hav slowed down. I need to take breaks from computer for the sake of my eyes, which was not the case prior to 2011.

Secondly, at that stage, I found it easy to wake up early in the morning and staying up late as well. My wife complained that I was neglecting my health by not getting enough sleep. Her constant nagging has finally had its effect on me. For the last two years, I no longer wake up at 5 AM in the morning and finish off six or seven posts for the day in three hours.

25 september 2011 was a crazy day when as many as 13 writeups were posted. First post appeared at 8:10 PM and the last post at 23:59 PM ! It means that I devoted the entire day at the computer doing nothing but posting articles all th time ! The same feat was repeated on 6 september 2012. The first post of the day appeared at 7:32 AM. The thirteenth and final post of the day appeared at 23:47 PM and that marked the 66th blog century for the blog !

Those were crazy days for the blog! The concepts of movies making their debuts, moving getting YIPPEED in the blog etc were not known. I did not have access to HFGK, so I was blissfully unaware if all the songs of a movie were covered in the blog. Unburdened by all these considerations, and helped by the fact that most well known songs of well known movies were still up for grabs, we had no problem finding sngs to discuss. All those songs, not yet dscovered were like low hanging fruits that were easy to pluck. We have dealt with all those low handing fruits and now we are dealing with songs that were relatively less popular and lesser known. I was gifted HFGK on july 2014 by our two Maharathi contributors Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, on the occasion of the blog completing 10000th post. By that time, we were also on to concepts like individual artists centuries, blog contributors centuries etc. We had also evolved the concept of YIPPEE thanks to the ever enthusiastic Pradeep Raghunathan. All these factors meant that we had to do more research that before to locate specific songs that met specific requirements.

These days we are not able to score our centuries at Sehwag like rate (16-17 days) but even scoring centuries at test match rate is not bad. What matters is that the musical juggesrnaut keeps moving and does not remain stand still. We have managed to remain free of a DOT day in the blog for this entire calendar year 2020. There were three DOT days in 2019, 7 in 2018 and ZERO in 2017. So we have ben like a non stop musical bandwagon for the last four years with hardly any stoppages. And let us hope that it continues that way.

Another thing where we had managed to staay true to form is in the selection of our Century songs. We manage to come up with special songs for such special occasions. Seeing that we have had 158 Blog centuries so far, we have discussed 158 special songs on these occasions. 158 is not a small number by any stretch of imagination. One would need more than 8 hours to listen to these special songs !

The 15900th song of the blog is a special song as well. It is special because

(i) it is a rare and obscure song
(ii) the singer is also obscure, though she comes from a well known musical family
(iii) The song is one that has been reused in at least two movies, both obscure.

The song is from “Bhed”(1950). This movie was produced by Amba Cinetone(Jal K Baliwala Productions Bombay). That is all that HFGK contains for this movie. HFGK tells us that this movie had at least nine songs in it, may be more. Mukul Roy (brother of Geeta Roy, later Geeta Dutt) was the music director.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed so far. All these three songs were sung by Geeta Dutt.

Here is another song from “Bhed”(1950). Is it sung by Geeta Dutt ? No, it is sung by Lakshmi Roy, sister of Geeta Dutt. Geeta Dutt is a legendary singer in HFM, but her sister Lakshmi Roy has sung very few songs in HFM. Most of her songs are duets with other singers. This song is an axception. It is a solo song.

This song is penned by Madhukar Rajasthani.

I made another interesting discovery. Five songs from “Bhed” (1953) were later reused in “Do Bahaadur”(1953). Unlike “Bhed”(1950), details of starcast of “Do Bahaadur”(1953) is known. “Do Bahaadur”(1953) was produced by Nari Cawasji and drected by Baburao Pahalwan for Baghdad Pictures under supervision of Shantaram Athwale. The movie had John Cawas, Shanta Patel, Rohini, Dalpat, Goldstein, Rajni, Chitalkar, Dilawar, Baby Balo, Aziz Premi, Madhu Apte, Ali, Baburao Pahalwan etc in it.

This movie too had music by Mukul Roy. The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs were same as those of “Bhed”(1950). the sixth song was taken from “Ustaad Pedro”(1951).

Such cut and paste job for music did not help the cause of “Do Bahaadur”(1953). For that matter even “Bhed”(1950) is a rare and forgotten movie.

Coming to Lakshmi Roy, she married producer director Pramod Chakraborty. Unlike her unfortunate sister Geeta, she enjoyed a long and happy married life.

As the 15900th song of the blog, here is this rare and special song from “Bhed”(1950).

A blog century on 20 september 2010 and a blog century on 20 september 2020 as well. So we have mnaged to achieve a different kind of “Blog Ten Year Challenge” today with this post. 🙂

As we can see, we are now just one more century away from the magic 16000 mark. Here is hoping that we will not just reach that landmark but also reach many distant landmarks in future. I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement.

Ritu Pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee
Ritu Pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee
mastiyaan le le kar angdaayi
mastiyaan le le kar angdaayi
kahi haan aayi haan aayi
saawan ban ke chhaayee
Ritu Pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee

chhaayee huyi khushrang(?) ghataayen
chhaayee huyi khushrang(?) ghataayen
naach rahi hain mast hawaayen
naach rahi hain mast hawaayen
koyal ne kook
koyal ne kook lagaayee
papeeha preetam ka saudaayee
kahen haan aayi haan aayi
Ritu Pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee

shama se kehta hai parwaana
shama se kehta hai parwaana
bulb(?) se hai gul suhaana
bulb(?) se hai gul suhaana
bhanwron se hai kaliyaan kehtin
chanda se kahen chakori
kya
kahen haan aayi haan aayi
kahen haan aayi haan aayi
Rut pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee
rut pyaar karan ki aayi
jawaani
saawan ban ke chhaayee
saawan ban ke chhaayee
