If you search in google for ‘history of post cards in India’ top of the results yields this result;

In July 1879, the Post Office of India introduced a quarter anna postcard that could be posted from one place to another within British India. This was the cheapest form of post provided to the Indian people to date and proved a huge success. … The postcard facility continues to this date in independent India.

Regulars on the blog are aware of how some members of this blog are fond of talking about our social institutions or our public transports and communication, like railways and post departments specifically.
Actually, it would not be wrong to say that some members like me are madly in love with the railways and postal departments in our country. And why not, both the railways and postal departments have their presence all over the country and these services also play major roles in nation building and national integration. I have a BIG nostalgia associated with both of these services.

I remember in my childhood days I was, (even now I am), very much fascinated with the postal services, their stationery. The overall atmosphere in a ‘post-office’ have always fascinated me.

A ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was very much popular and the most preferred one to send letters among families and friends, and others. Due to my interest in books and magazines I was frequently using it for getting various publications.

I used to order books through VPP and sometimes even if I could not buy books, I would ask for the ‘list of publications’ from various publishers. We needed to send only a ‘post card’ and in return there would be an envelope carrying printed list with printed pictures of some of the books. That would give me immense pleasure.

I was also having my library containing story books and magazines for children to read mainly during summer vacations.

The simple ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was used for many things like conveying important messages or urgent messages, as it was said that the post-cards were delivered faster than the ‘inland letter’ and ‘envelopes.
My Grand Father staying at Akola (i.e., 25 kms from Paras) was always using post-card to send us letters. And it was the same with most other people.

Years back I had pursued my correspondence studies through IGNOU wherein all the study materials were delivered by post and all communication was through posts only. So, one can guess how close the post services are to my heart. 😊

I do not remember anyone raising any ‘privacy violation issues’ those days for ‘post-cards’. I vividly remember that a ‘postman’ would never read your letters unless requested by those who could not read. They would make it a point to handover the letters to the ‘addressee’ and to no one else.

After coming back from Kenya in Dec’2019, I got to visit the post office here in Vadodara many times particularly for dispatch of my daughter’s online shop products and other communications. I noticed how the department has been now given a modernized look and we can also see attractive guidelines and information painted on the walls giving it a ‘super-market’ type look.

But I also noticed someting that has not changed over the years. It is a one iron-box used for storing ‘stamps’ (a box little big than or similar to a metal school box of those days) and the ‘sorting room’ or ‘chamber’ having wooden partition separating it from general office.

Another change that I noticed is in the price of the post card, inland letter and envelope. Now we have to pay fifty paise for a post card.

I have a vague recollection that I have seen post cards of ten paise or five paise as well ! May be when I was a child, I must have seen them some with my ‘stamp-collecting’ friends.

Slowly and gradually After the advent of mobile phones and many modes of faster communication the ‘postal modes’ has Slowly and gradually taken the back-seat.

Recently for the sake of nostalgia I bought one piece each of ‘post card’, inland letter and envelope’.


***
What we discussed above is all good one side of the ‘coin’ (or post-card I should say) including happy memories and nostalgia.

On the other side there is another side. Now people do not find time to write letters as they are ‘busy’ in life. Sometimes it can even create misunderstandings between two close friends, where lack of response from either side can strain their relations.

People close to you or even not so close to you always have expectations. And there are some people who are not at all punctual like others, to return a call or a reply to a letter and reciprocate with same zeal and enthusiasm. It may be inadvertentand not deliberatel, but not responding for whatever reason may affect our relations with others.

As an example, it is my habit even now to call each and every friend that I am in contact with, even if they do not reciprocate with the same enthusiasm (I expect somebody should also given me a call and give me a pleasant surprise ).

I have noticed that nowadays people will send you friend requests, emails, WhatsApp messages or use all kind of social networks. On the other hand they generally avoid face to face conversation or the joy of meeting a person and giving him (or her) a hug (😊). In older days people would jump at the opportunity of meeting each other (I mean jump with joy 😊).

Communicating with our near and dear ones is so cheap and affordable, still there are some who cannot find time to communicate with others.

In older days, such people would be described as ‘arey yaar wo to pandrah paise ka ek post card bhi nahin bhejta hai’ or ‘kam se kam pandrah paise ka ek card hi post kar dete Bhai’, ‘itne dinon se tumhaari koyi khabar hi nahin aayi, pandrah paise ka card bhi nahin kharid sakte the kya, aisi bhi kya kanjusi’😊 (I have still maintained to keep the conversation in sophisticated language … and not using dialects 😊)

After remonstating thus, the long lost friends would readily forgive you and give you benefit of doubt in view of the various reasons given by you for responding. And after a little good natured quarrel everything would be fine among the aggrived and the aggriever.

What about someone who is in love with you and has ‘nyochhawar’ed’ (slang?) oneself on you, she or he will definitely say what the lady in today’s song is saying …

I will not repeat it here instead let us listen to this in today’s song …

Jayshree T is performing this song from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Ahinsaa’. We can see Ranjeet and others in the picturization of this mujra song.

“Ahinsaa-1979” was directed by Chand for ‘Ashwin Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Shiv Kumar.

Story of this movie was written by Chand and K.B. Pathak and dialogues were written by Jainendra Jain. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. It had Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Prem Nath, Ranjeet, Nirupa Roy, Alka, Kamini Kaushal, Rajendra Nath, Jayshree T., Jairaj, Trilok Kapoor, Tun Tun, Kundan, Mohan Shery, Bhagwan, Romeo, Jankidas, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Master Raju, Shiv Kumar, Keshav Rana, Rajan Haksar, Narendra Pathak, Major Anand, Ranveer Raj, Hiralal and others. Om Shivpuri, Dev Kumar, Shakti Kapoor, Shyamlee make a friendly appearance in this movie. Asrani make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had four songs. Two were written by Rajkavi Tulsi and one each by Ram Bharadwaj and Anjaan.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Anand Kumar C., and Badri Prasad (mentioned in HFGK not in the movie titles) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.
Music of this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.06.1979.

let us enjoy this rocking(😊) mujra song dedicated to the lovely ‘post-cards’ what they were in the seventies – ‘khat, pandrah paise waalaa’. Just out of curiosity I counted and noted that the word ‘pandrah paise waalaa’ appears ‘sixteen’ times in the song…

With today’s song this movie “Ahinsaa-1979” makes its debut on the blog. (It also serves another purpose of bringing ‘movies with same title on the blog’. We already have “Ahinsaa-1947” on the blog.

I have not watched today’s movie so can’t say much about its storyline but we can get idea of the story of this movie from the following dedication in titles;

‘This movie is dedicated to all those criminals and dacoits who surrendered themselves to the law with the inspiration of Loknayak Shri. Jayaprakash Narayan’

I had come across the today’s song a few months ago when I was looking for ‘Kalyanji-Anandji’ composed songs.
On going through other songs of this movie I find only song sounding familiar to me which is ‘Yaar mera rab ho gaya’ only. I was curious to know about the other songs so I listened to them and found today’s song as an interesting 😊 song.

Let us now listen to today’s song. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Ram Bharadwaj and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lyrics

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
khoyi khoyi si rehti hoon
le le ke tera naam
hansi udaaye har subah
aur dank maare shaam

maine tan man de daalaa aa
maine tan man de daalaa
sainyya solah saal waalaa aa
maine tan man de daalaa
sainyya solah saal waalaa
par toone to khat bhi na daalaa
haaye
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
tan man de daalaa
sainyya solah saal waalaa
par toone to khat bhi na daalaa
arey pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa

ye mardon ki jaat
nibhaaye naa saath
muyee mardon ki jaat
nibhaaye naa saath
jo aurat ko samjhe
khilaunaa aa
kabhi bante hain yaar
kabhi karte hain pyaar
jo dikhaate hain sapnaa salonaa
hai tujhko qasam
ye bataa de balam
hai tujhko qasam
ye bataa de balam
kya souten ne tere din phere ae
arey kaalaa jaadu daalaa
bairi kaalaa jaadu daalaa
kaalaa jaadu daalaa
bairi kaalaa jaadu daalaa
tan man de daalaa
sainyya solah saal waala
par toone to khat bhi na daalaa
kyun
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa

dekh main phuljhadi
tere dar pe khadi ee
dekh main phuljhadi
tere dar pe khadi
mujhe pehnaa de pyaar ka kangnaa aa
ye hai arzi meri
ye hai marzi meri
tere nainon mein hai mujhe basnaa
mere dil mein hai jo
naa jaane tu wo
mere dil mein hai jo
naa jaane tu wo
kaise bedardi sainyya se ae ae
kaahe padaa paalaa
bairi kaahe padaa paalaa
kaahe padaa paalaa
bairi kaahe padaa paalaa
tan man de daalaa
sainyya solah saal waala
par tune to khat bhi na daalaa
arey pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
