The song under discussion is from “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971). “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971) was produced by S J Rajdev and directed by Shantilal Soni for ‘Sargam Chitra, Bombay’. The movie had Sushma, Ashish Kumar, B.M. Vyas, Padma Rani, Shabana, Uma Dutt, Azad, Shery Mohan, Arvind Pandya, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Shri Bhagwan, Bhagwan Sinha, Maya, Shobha, Suman, Prem Lata, Daya Devi, Rajeshwari Rao, Haroon, Prince Arjun, Kiran Kumar, Dalpat Bhai etc in it.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by R. Priyadarashi. Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu. Lyrics of this movie were written by B.D. Mishra and music was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

Lyrics of the song as well as details of the movie were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala, with the request that- “Kindly introduce the movie with your writeup please, as I am not good when it comes to writing about mythology. Please.

While making the above request, he assumed that I can write about mythology. In reality, I know even less about this topic. Whatever litle I knew about this topic was from my voracious reading of children’s magazines like Chandamama, and also reading of Geeta Press Gorakhpur religious publications during my younger days. I have already forgotten most of that.

I in fact, learnt something new from the email of Avinash Scrapwala. I realised that there is a Navratri during Durga puja of october November and also another navratri in the summer season. The summer season navratri is called Chaitra navratri and it marks the beginning of the Hindu calendar year.

Today marks the beginning of Hindu calendar year Samvat 2078. This is Vikram Samvat (Vikram calendar), which, we can see is 57 years ahead of Gregorian calendar (the one that is commonly followed by most people). However India adopted Shak Samwat (Shak Calendar) as Indian calendar which has the same months as Vikram calendar but it started in 78 AD, unlike Vikram Samwat which started in 57 BC. Official Shak calendar is tied to the Gregorian calendar. It begins on 22 march, and on Gregorian leap year it begins on 21 march.

Chaitra is the first month of Hindu Vikram Samvat calendar year. This year this day falls on 13 April. Chaitra navratri begins from this day. This time it is from 13 april to 22 april.

Like during the october-november Navratri, the chaitra navratri too is observed by praying to different avatars of Goddess Durga during the nine days of the festival. These avataras, that are worshipped on the nine days are:-from day one to day nine-Maa Shailputri, Maa Brahmcharini, Maa Chandraghanta,Maa Kushmaanda,Skandmata, Maa Katyayani, Maa Kaalraatri, Maa Mahagauri and Maa Sidhhidaatri.

The festival marks the beginning of the spring season and it ends with Ram Navami or the birthday of Lord Rama.

This new year day is celebrated in different parts of the country by different names viz. Gudi Padwa (Maharashra, MP,Chattisgarh), Ugadi (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka), Puthandu (Tamilnadu), Vishu (Kerala), Bihu (Assam), Poila Baisaakh (Bangal), Baisaakhi (Punjab) etc.

Just imagine for a second. All these regions of India, located far far away from each other, have been celebrating their new year on this same day for many centuries! It means that all these diverse places, separated by vast distances have been culturally integrated for many many centuries ago ! How else do you explain the fact that all these regions celebrate their new years on the same day ! I notice that I have stayed in almost all the above mentioned regions of India and I have observed this new year celebrated in almost all its different forms. 🙂

Religious minded people use this occasion for pooja, archana, aradhana etc, whereas cultural minded people celebrate it through songs and dances. Vigorous Punjabi dance on this occasion is well known to most people. Personally I am a big fan of Bihu dance that I saw getting performed on this occasion, during my stay in Assam two decades ago. These festivals also have much to offer to those who look forward to sweets and pakwaans. 🙂

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had six songs (including one five-part song). All the songs of this movie were written by B.D. Mishra and music was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

The list of the songs given in HFGK is as follows;

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Jai devi maata, jai nau durgaa maata Manna Dey, Chandrani Mukherji, chorus
02 Sansaar ki kaisi reet hai …sachchaayi roye duniya mein Asha Bhonsle
03 O raaja aa jaa na mere paas Asha Bhonsle
04 Aao suhaag ki raat manaa le… tumhaare sang jeenaa thha Asha Bhonsle
05 (a) Nij janm bhoomi dharti maa ko naman-part-1
(b) Hari bhari brajbhoomi seenchti sadaa
(c) Kaam krodh mad lobh moh kitnaa hi zor lagaaye
(d) Paap taap santaap jhoothh ki ek na chalegi
(e) Teerath teerath mandir mandir jo ghoome din raat
Manna Dey, Chandrani Mukherjee, chorus
06 Maa Paava gadh thhi ootaryaa mahaakaali re (garbaa)

When I first looked at the name of the movie and the lyrics of the song, and looked at the request of Avinash scrapwala regarding this being a song for the occasion, my first impression was, how can it be. It is a song fit for Durga puja. Then, on doing some research, that I have presented above, I found out that there is something known as Chaitra Navratri and that it is a festival like the Navratri of Dashara, and that this song is actually tailormade for the occasion. Now I have realised that the world “Nav Durga” that we often come across is not “nav Durga” but “nau Durga” viz. “nine Durga”, and it refers to the nine forms of Durga.

The song plays in the background at the credits appear on the screen. The lyrics of this song mentions all the nine forms of Durga.

This shows that the makers of movies like this were very well versed with Indian mythology and they could make movies on such topics. The lyricists of the songs of such movies had indepth knowledge about the subject as we can see from the lyrics of this song, which comes from the pen of B D Mishra. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

With this song, “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971) makes its debut in the blog. 1971 saw 115 movies getting released. This movie is the 106th movie of 1971 to find representation in the blog.

We this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year and chaitr navraatr.

Let us now listen to song devoted to Maa Durga, the Goddess who is worshipped during this Chaitr Navraatr.


Song-Jai devi maataa Jai Nau Durga Maataa (Sampoorna Devi Darshan)(1971) Singer- Manna Dey, Chandrani Mukherjee, Lyrics – B D Mishra, Music – S N Tripathi

Today’s song is from a ‘not so famous’ film from New Theatres – which had been making popular and musical films for the last few years. The song belongs to the film ” Sapera aka The Snake Charmer”-1939. The song was written by Kidar Sharma and the music was by R C Boral-The Doyen of Film music in India. The film was directed by Debaki Bose and the cast was Nawab, Kanan Devi, Pahadi Sanyal,Prithviraj Kapoor, K C Dey, Menaka Devi and others.

Today’s song is sung by Kanan Devi. I have memories that I first heard her singing “Toofan Mail” from the film Jawab-42, sometime in the end of the 40s, when I was about 10 year old. We had a “Phono” (Gramophone) with a lot of records in 2-3 Record boxes. My father was fond of Pankaj Mullick songs, so we had many records of his film and non-film songs. Also Saigal songs, but I only remember vividly the song of Kanan Devi-Toofan mail, ye duniya hai Toofan mail. Later on, as I grew older, other film songs took over, but even today, whenever I hear this song, I get a nostalgic feeling. That was the magic of her singing !

Kanan Devi is a true example of “Rags to Riches” story. She rose from a very low level, but ended up with earning all the honours and respect a successful artiste can have ! When I first read her autobiography-‘ My Homage to all’, tears came to my eyes. Famous film writer late Pran Neville called her “an unlettered slum girl, who rose to become a much sought after social celebrity”. She did not know who her father was, she faced a failed love affair and a broken marriage, but won over all these things to become the winner.

If one sees the history of early cinema in Bengal, about 70% of the cine artistes (in all departments of filmmaking) were educated and from well to do families. Some were foreign returned, some were very rich and very few came from low level. Kanan was an example. In her childhood, she faced days when she had nowhere to go, but in the end, she led the way to other strugglers.

Kanan Devi, the melody queen and superstar of the 1930s and 40s, was a remarkable personality. An epitome of beauty, glamour and grace and the recipient of the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award (1976), Kanan’s life story (1916-1992) transcends that of Eliza Doolittle in “Pygmalion” and “My Fair Lady”. Her memoir “Sabare Ami Nami” (I pay my respect to everyone) provides a fascinating account of her transformation from an unlettered slum girl into a much sought after social celebrity. The most astounding aspect of her persona was her grit, determination and courage which led her to attain the pinnacle of fame and glory and thus become a legend and an institution in her lifetime.

Kanan was born on 22 April 1916 in Howrah, West Bengal. In her autobiography, entitled ” My Homage to all”, Kanan has observed that those she considered as her parents were Ratan Chandra Das and Rajobala, who lived together. After the death of her adoptive father, Ratan Chandra Das, young Kanan and Rajobala were simply left to fend for themselves. Her life story is a true tale of rags to riches. Some say she did her schooling (not completed) from Howrah’s St. Agnes’ Convent School.

A well wisher, Tulsi Banerji, whom she called Kaka babu, introduced Kanan when she was only ten to Madan Theatres/Jyoti Studios, where she was cast in a small role in Jaidev (1926), followed by Shankaracharya in 1927. She was known as Kanan Bala.

By now, she was known as a good singer. By 1929, she was recording several songs. In this year, Kanan Bala met handsome Hiren Bose and a new chapter in her life seemed to be blooming. Hiren Bose was highly educated and had earned titles of “Vidya Bhushan” and “Sangeet Ratna”. In the years 1928 to 1932, Hiren had joined HMV as a Music Director. Here he became a close friend of Kazi Nazrul Islam and Dhiren Das. Both Kazi and Hiren wrote lyrics for songs in HMV .

Around 1929,a new , young and attractive singer came to HMV. Her name was KANAN BALA. She came to record songs. Soon the handsome Hiren cast his spell on Kanan and she started considering him as her mentor in HMV. They were a quartet of friends, Kanan, Hiren, Kazi and Dhiren. In HMV Kanan recorded many songs set to tune or written by Hiren Bose. In 1932,this team left HMV, on the issue of Royalty and joined the newly formed Megaphone Recording company. Here too after 2 years, this team left Megaphone and joined Columbia recording company. By 1934,Hiren wrote in his autobiography- JATI SMAR (My memories)-later that he had lost interest in Kananbala. She was broken-hearted.

Kanan did at least five films with Madan Theatres productions, (1926–1932) Rishir Prem (1931), Jorebarat (1931), Vishnu Maya (1932) and Prahlad, playing even male leads in the last two. She then worked with Radha Films from 1933 to 1936, then with New Theatres from 1937 to 1941, with MP Productions 1942 to 1948 and finally set up her own label Shrimati Pictures, 1949 to 1965.

From silent film roles as a child artist, Kanan made the successful transition into talkie films and was noticed with Jorebarat (1931), Manomoyee Girls School, Khooni Kaun and Maa (1934).

Her films with Jyotish Bannerjee included Joydev (1926), Rishir Prem (1931), Jorebarat (1931), Vishnumaya (1932), Kantahaar (1935) and Manomoyee Girls School (1935). Her films with Prafulla Ghosh were Sree Gouranga (1933), Char Darvesh (1933), Maa (1934) and Hari Bhakti. Others with Radha Film Company were Kanthahar (1935), Krishna Sudama (1936), Bishabriksha (1936) and Char Darvesh (1933).

New Theatres’s P.C. Barua wanted her to play the lead in his Devdas (1935), but, due to contractual reasons with Radha, she could not act in the film, a factor she regretted all her life.

The films of New Theatres, owned by Biren Sircar, established her as a superhit singer and her films ran to packed audiences. She had to travel under constant protection, given her huge fan following. During her years with New Theatres, Calcutta from 1937, she played the lead in Barua’s Mukti (1937), which was perhaps her finest performance, making her the studio’s top star. Apart from Mukti, she did Vidyapati, Saathi (1938), Street Singer (1938), Sapera (1939), Jawani Ki Reet (1939), Parajay (1939), Abhinetri (1940), Lagan (1941), Parichay (1941) and Jawab (1942). She became known as Kanan Devi from this point.

She came in contact with the music maestro Rai Chand Boral, who not only coached and familiarized her in the Hindi accent, but experimented with many classical Western and Indian forms in his music. She received her initial musical training under Alla Rakha. She was employed as a singer at the Megaphone Gramophone Company, receiving further training under Bhishmadev Chatterjee. She later learnt Rabindra Sangeet under Anadi Dastidar. Kanan remained the top star of New Theatres until she resigned her contract in 1941 and began to freelance in Bengali and Hindi films.

She worked with the biggest names in Indian cinema with K. L. Saigal, Pankaj Mullick, Pramathesh Barua, Pahari Sanyal, Chabi Biswas and Ashok Kumar.

M.P. Productions’ Jawaab was perhaps her biggest hit. Her song Duniya Yeh Duniya, Hai Toofan Mail was well received. She repeated the same feat in Hospital (1943), Banphool (1945) and Rajlakshmi (1946). Kanan Devi’s last Hindi film was Chandrashekhar (1948), with Ashok Kumar. In all, she worked in 20 Hindi films. She also sang 86 songs in 16 Hindi films.

In 1947, she went abroad to educate herself with the goings on in the western world of cinema. She was glad to visit Hollywood and meet legends like Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Robert Taylor and others. On her return she resumed her professional career and worked in some films before setting up her own Shrimati Productions. Kanan turned producer with Shrimati Pictures in 1949 and later launched the Sabyasachi Collective with the film Ananya (1949). Her own productions were mainly based on the stories of Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay.

Kanan married Ashok Maitra in December 1940. He was the son of the staunch Brahmo Samaj educationist Heramba Chandra Maitra. Despite their best intentions, the marriage could not withstand the severe condemnation by the then conservative society. Even the poet Rabindranath Tagore, who sent a token gift to the married couple received scathing criticism for blessing the couple. The main issue was that Kanan was not expected to be working in films after her marriage. She filed for divorce in 1945. Despite the pain of the divorce, Kanan expressed her immense gratitude towards her first husband for giving her social recognition through marriage for the first time in her life. To Kanan’s credit, she maintained excellent relations with Rani Mahalanobis, sister to Ashok Maitra and her husband, the famous social scientist P.C. Mahalanobis and with Kusumkumari Devi, Ashok Maitra’s mother, even after the marriage was severed.

Kanan married Haridas Bhattacharjee around 1949. Haridas Bhattacharjee was then ADC to the Governor of Bengal. He eventually left the naval service to join Kanan in her filmmaking venture and became a competent director. While raising their son Siddharth in Calcutta, she also formed and worked as the president of Mahila Shilpi Mahal, an organization to help senior female artists and other charitable and community causes, including those for the betterment of Bengali cinema.

It was quite an uphill task for Kanan Bala to transform herself into Kanan Devi in those days when women liberation was unheard of. She had to struggle and with her strong determination and independent personality, she virtually forced the society to shower their respect and esteem on her when she became a celebrity in her own right. In her old age, she fondly remembered her days at New Theatres, full of joy and laughter. She was deeply impressed with K.L. Saigal and had the greatest regard for him.

Kanan Devi virtually stopped singing after 1947. Her last concert was at the India House in London when she was invited by Shri Krishna Menon, the High Commissioner, to perform on 15th August 1947. She mentioned it as the greatest moment in her life as a singer. Kanan inspired a whole generation of later day singers, the foremost being Lata Mangeshkar. She lived a full life both as an artiste as well as a woman. A great devotee of Lord Krishna, during her last years she spent most of her time in worshipping her lord and reading Geeta for her self-realisation and inner peace.

Kanan Devi, as the first lady of the Bengali screen, received many honours for her contribution to Indian cinema. An honorary degree from Vishwabharati, the Padma Shree in 1968 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1976.

She died on 17 July 1992 in Bellevue Clinic, Calcutta when she was around seventy-six years of age. ( based on some information from Wiki, an article by Pran Neville, book ‘ My homage to all’ by Kanan Devi, muVyz, and my notes, with thanks.)

In the film’s cast the name Menaka Devi appears. She is a part of Same Name Confusion, as another Menaka was also active at the same time. Luckily this was from Calcutta and the other one was from Bombay. However, by working in Bombay films and Calcutta films, both Menakas did create enough confusion. Let us know more about this Manaka Devi- Calcuttewali.

Menaka Devi was born in Varanasi on 23-1-1921. Her mother was a resident of the holy city although her father was from Bengal. She studied upto Matriculation. She could speak fluent English and Hindi, but not much of Bangla, having been raised in Varanasi. Her interest in music and dance took her to Bombay where she starred in a couple of films like Prince Thaksen (1929), Uttara Abhimanyu, Ishwar Ki Maut and others as a child artiste. When the Talkie started she acted and sang in Bhedi Rajkumar-34, Pyara Dushman-35 and Krishna Shishtai – 35.

Reportedly, she met the legendary film director Debaki Bose of Bengal during a train journey and he was so impressed by her that he decided to cast her in the lead role of his next venture in the Hindi version of the bilingual Sonar Sansar (1936 in Bangla and Sunehra Sansar-36 in Hindi) and thus began the illustrious career of Menaka Devi.

Her devotion to work was such that she learnt Bengali, her mother tongue although she was anything but fluent in it having spent all her life till then outside Bengal, so that she could play the same role (that of Alka) in the Bengali version also. Dhiraj Bhattacharya was her first hero on the screen. P.C.Barua, who was on the lookout for a young and fresh face to play Jharna in his forthcoming production Mukti (1937) selected her for both the versions ( Bangla and Hindi) and a flow started whereby she starred in films like Adhikar (1939), Abhigyan (1938), Bardidi (1939 in Bangla and Badi Didi in Hindi), Rajat Jayanti (1940) and others.

She decided to try her luck in Bombay around 1944 and starred in a few films there and definitely made her presence felt although playing the second lead most of the time. Kishore Sahu procured her services for Hamari Duniya (1952). She was married to Pannalal Shrivastav and had 1 daughter ( Jaya Ganguly). She turned producer also and this proved her undoing. Both her films as producer, Apna na Huye Apne (No information of this film,probably incomplete) and Jeene Do-48, both starring herself with prominent Bombay stars flopped.

She returned to Calcutta a broken woman and found to her dismay that roles were not coming to her. She joined the MG Enterprise, a drama group of Molina Devi and performed on the stage to continue to live as an actress. She even arranged magic shows along with husband Pannalal Srivastava while small roles came pouring in films like Ekti Raat (1956) and others. The feature that strikes even today while seeing her performance is the spontaneous nature of her acting. Why good roles eluded her is a mystery. She was last seen on the screen in Bhombal Sardar (1983). In all, she acted in 60 films-Bangla and Hindi together.

Her end came on 22-1- 2004 after a prolonged fight not only against poor health but also poverty. Her death was reported only in one Bengali daily although her death news received good coverage on television.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 132 # Qawwalis – 10 # Missing Films of 1971- 04#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Welcome all to the ‘tenth’ qawwali post in this series. It gives me immense satisfaction that I could present this series. I will be able to conclude this series in the next couple of posts.

Today we will listen to a ‘sufi qawwali’ rendered by the most admired ‘qawwali singing’ duo Shankar-Shambhu. I have mentioned it in my earlier posts that I have a great fascination for this name ‘Shankar-Shambhu’, may be because of the movie with same name released in ‘1976’ which I watched in my childhood, and possibly may be from the discussions of elders at home about the ‘qawwali’ and this ‘qawwali’ singing duo.

Stage shows and programs of ‘Qawwali’ were very common during the years of my childhood i.e., the ‘seventies’ and they were also part of movies where we had great qawwalis produced in HFM.

Today’s qawwali is from the movie ‘Shaan-E-Khudaa-1971’. It is directed by Nanubhai Vakeel for ‘Vanita Films, Bombay’. It had Azra, Rajpal, Chandra Mohan, Benazir, Roshan, Salam, Sukhbir Kaur, Anwari Bai, Munshi Munakka, Wazeer Muhammad Khan, Uma Dutt, Shaukat Azmi, Sujata, Master Sunil, Master Dabbu, Baby Deepali and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.05.1971.

‘Shaan-E-Khudaa’ had seven songs written by A.H. Rizvi, S.H. Bihari, Kaifi Azmi and a traditional song. Music for this film was composed by Iqbal Qureshi. Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Hemlata, Krishna Kalle and Shankar-Shambhu had lent their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Teri zulfon ke ameer… jalwa zaraa dikhaa de A.H. Rizvi Shankar-Shambhu
02 Kaali kamli waale tujhpe laakhon salaam Asha Bhonsle
03 Ya nabi salaam aleka, ya rasul salaam aleka A.H. Rizvi Asha Bhonsle
04 Rakhta hai jo roza kabhi bhookhaa na rahegaa Asha Bhonsle
05 Dekha na kabhi hamne apnaa hai ki begaanaa Krishna Kalle
06 Milta hai kya namaaz mein sar ko jhukaa ke dekh lo A.H. Rizvi Asha Bhonsle
07 Bihar ho ki maneri ho, ye rozaa ye roze ki shaan allaah

On screen today’s qawwali is performed by Shankar-Shambu themselves. I guess that it is picturized in the premises of the famous ‘Khawaajaa Moinuddin Chishti’ dargaah at Ajmer. The picturization also shows the clips of the ‘annual fair’ at the dargaah and also the picturesque locations of Ajmer including the famous ‘Pushkar Lake’.

let us now listen to today’s qawwali in the voice of Shankar-Shambhu and chorus. Lyrics are by A.H. Rizvi and Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.
I have not been able to note correct words at a few places. I would request readers to provide correct ords there and would also like to request knowledgeable reader who had watched this movie to throw light on the movie and its songs..

From today the ‘holy’ month of ‘Ramaadaan’ will also start and I would take this opportunity to wish everyone a ‘very happy Ramaadaan’.It will miss the normal fervor this time due to the current ‘Covid19 pandemic’ related restrictions. I am sure people will celebrate it with the same enthusiasm and offer their prayers to God to bless everyone with good health, joy and peace in life.

This movie ‘Shaan-E-Khudaa-1971’ makes its debut on the blog ith this qawwaali.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 131 # Qawwalis – 9
——————————————-—–—————-——

Welcome all to another post presenting a song from the ‘decade of seventies-1971-1980’. The years when I was growing, and as a ‘child’ I have many memories and nostalgia especially related with the only popular entertainment medium available those days i.e., ‘Hindi Cinema’, ‘Radio’ and ‘Hindi Film Music’.

Today I am once again taking you to back to the ‘seventies’. Today we will listen to a ‘qawwali’ composed by Raam Laxman. His first on the blog in this category. Today’s song in not a ‘pure’ ‘qawwali’ but can be termed a ‘fusion-qawwali’ if I am not wrong. Today’s song can also remind readers of the famous ‘raaz ki baat kah doon to’ from the movie ‘Dharma-1973’.

Well, the today’s song or ‘qawwali’ is from the movie ‘Agent Vinod-1977’.

‘Agent Vinod-1977’ was directed by Deepak Bahri for ‘Sargam Pictures Pvt. Ltd., Bombay’.
It had Mahendra Sandhu, Asha Sachdev, Rehana Sultana, Iftekhar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Nazir Hussain, Ravindra Kapoor, K.N. Singh, V. Gopal, Vishwa Mehra, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder, Bhagwan, Sharat Saksena, Kamal Deep, Master Romi, Shail Chaturvedi, Ranvir Raj, Gurbachan, Brujendra Mohan, Jagdeep, Helen, Jayshree T., Leena Das, Sheetal, Asha Potdar, Geeta Khanna, Shobhna Shah and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.07.1977.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my Father, I had forgotten about this movie except its one song ‘Lovelina aa gaya main’. And later on, when I started my music collection, I was always looking for this movies’ song. The other thing that had made to my ‘impressionable mind’ was its dashing hero Mahendra Sandhu. However, I do not remember if I watched his other movies too (they are not so many I think).
But like many other stars from the ‘seventies’, I always remember Mahendra Sandhu’s name whenever movies or related stories about movies were discussed among friends or in the family with elders.

This movie had six songs which were penned by Ravindra Rawal and composed to music by Raam-Laxman.

Following is the list of songs of this movie (as given in HFGK Vol-V-1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Zu zu … main jhonka matwaala Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Lovelina main aa gaya Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh 21.10.2013
03 Band kamre mein ek ladki akeli Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Sandhu
04 Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey Being discussed today
05 Yaara dildaara, tera ye ishaara Usha Mangeshkar, Dilraj Kaur
06 Ham to nikle ram bharose Mahendra Kapoor, Jaspal Singh, chorus

We can see that as many as nine singers were used for the six songs in this movie. This easily give us hint about the variety of the songs this movie had.

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 21.10.2013. Around the same time, I had noted the today’s song which is being presented today.

Today’s song happens in a party and is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. On screen it is Leena Das and Mahendra Sandhu lip-syncing in the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey respectively.
Also seen in the picturization is Asha Sachdev who accompanies Mahendra Sandhu in the party which I guess is hosted by Pinchoo Kapoor who seems to have planned to trap Mahendra Sandhu – a secret agent. And for this purpose, Leena Das sings the song to woo Mahendra Sandhu. Mahendra Sandhu who is already aware of their intentions joins the song. Not just that , he even cautions them ‘hamse na uljho aye jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge,
pehchaan jaaoge, phir maan jaaoge’ 😊

I hope readers will like today’s song as much as I do. 😊

let us now enjoy today’s song …


Song-Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge (Agent Vinod)(1977) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Ram Laxman

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aa aa
Jo roshani hai
aaftaab chaand taaron mein
Jo dilkashi hai
chaman ke haseen nazaaron mein
Mere shabaab mein
aise samaa gaye ae donon
Ke jaise pyaar ke nagme
jawaan bahaaron mein

Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Surkh zanjeer nazar teer
Adaayein khanjar
Hain tabassum mein bijliyaan
Mera shabaab kehar
Aa aa
Inmein uljhaana mujhe
Koi aasaan nahin
Maut ka darr ho jise
Main wo naadaan nahin
Kabhi nishaana
Kabhi waar chook jaata hai
Mera qaatil har ek baar
Jhhuk jaata hai
Iss ghadi bhi hoon nishaane pe
Waar kar jaao
Ya meri maut ka phir aitbaar kar jaao

Hmm bahut dekhe
Haan
Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Waqt ke saath main har rang mein
Dhal saktaa hoon
Zidd pe aaoon to rukh hawaa ka
Badal saktaa hoon

Josh mein yoon naa machal
Naaz itna bhi naa kar
Tujhko behkaa gayi hai
Ye jawaani ki lehar
Ye mera kaam thha
Aagaah tujhe kar dena
Koi mushkil nahin
Gumraah tujhe kar dena
zulfein kar doon jo pareshaan to
Aise ghir jaao
Inn andheron mein
Umr bhar bhatakte reh jaao
Achha
Hmm
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Jahaan mein dekhe hi nahin hai
Toone zindaa dil

Tu bhi samjhaa nahin nadaan
Adaayein qaatil
Aa aa
Aaj maukaa hai milaa

Phir na karnaa tu gilaa
Main hoon tayyar khadaa
Jhoothi zidd pe hai adaa
Jaane kyon teri jawaani pe
Reham aata hai
Haath aaya shikaar bhi
Koi ganwaata hai

Nainon se teer chale
Haan
Meri aahon se chale

Neechi nazron ki hayaa
Khaali ye waar gayaa
Tabassum ki ye bijlee
Naa meri jaan nikli
Ye meri shokh adaa
Kuchh asar hi naa hua
Dekh meri angdaayee
Ye bhi mujh tak na aayi

Mere liye koi nayaa sitam
Ijaad karo
Ya jo jawaab diya hai maine
Use yaad karo
Kyon yaad aaya ke nahin

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Blog Day :

4648 Post No. : 16312

Every few years or so, we have people proudly posting the photographs of their fingers with indelible ink in it, as proof of having voted in a parliament election or an assembly election. 🙂

These days, we have a non recurring once in a century occurrence taking place, namely Covid 19 vaccination. The process of this covid vaccination in India is very much comparable to the process of parliamentary general election. People are getting themslves vaccinated, and posting photos of their vaccination on their social media accounts. 🙂

India has two kinds of vaccines that are approved for vaccination. One is covishield (manufactured by Serum Institute of India Pune) and another is Covaxin (manufactured by Bharat Biotech, Hyderabad)

Both vaccines got the approval of India’s Central Drugs and Standards Committee (CDSCO) for emergency use on 3 january 2021 after they completed their various phases of trials.

Serum Institute of India has the largest capacity in the entire world for producing vaccines. Its vaccine Covishield was based on the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine developed in UK whereas Covaxin of Bharat Biotec was an indigenously developed vaccine. The capacity of Serum Institute of India is much higher than that of Bharat Biotech. Covishield vaccine was even offered by Government of India to some friendly countries. As on date, more than 80 countries have received consignments of Covishield vaccine, in a Government of India initiative dubbed as “Vaccine Maitri”. This initiative has won India tremendous goodwill worldwide. Some countries offered profuse thanks to India and Indian government for this gesture.

SII was manufacturing 65-70 million doses in a month but that was not enough to meet the demands of India and other countries. It plans to enhance its capacity to 100 million doses in a month and for that it has sought Government help of Rs 3000 crores($453 millions).

Till today, 90% of all vaccination done in India is of Covishield. Other 10 % is of covaxin. As of now (8 april 2021), 8 crore 29 lakh Covishield vaccine doses and 82 lakh covaxin doses have been administered in India. In addition, 6 crore 45 lakh doses of Covishield have also been supplied to 85 different countries as grant, on commercial basis, and also under CEPI, GAVI, WHO and UNICEFs COVAX programme.

These vaccines have much less stringent low temperature requirement for storage compared to some other vaccines developed abroad. So These vaccines can be transported and stored in India using the existing cold chain logistical infrastructure. That way they are suitable for other less developed countries of the world as well.

Coming to Indian vaccination programme, Just like all adult (18 plus) Indian citizens are eligible to vote, all citizens of certain age group are eligible for free vaccination. Initially people in 60 plus age group were eligible. Certain category of people, like doctors, frontline workers etc, who were in the forefront of fighting this pandemic were also eligible irrespective of their age. Beginning from 1 april 2021, all Indian citizens above the age of 45 are eligible. This will cover about 40 crore Indian citizens (out of 130 crore population).

My wife and daughter belonged to the category of medical personnel and so both of them were eligible for their doses of vaccination. Both of them got their two doses of vaccination before the end of march 2021.

I was not eligible. Some 45 to 59 years age group people who had comorbidities (viz serious health conditions) too were eligible before 1 april 2021 for vaccination on production of doctor’s report and many people of this age group got themselves vaccinated making use of this provision even when some of them had no comorbidities. My wife asked me to get myself vaccinated, as did our daughter, but I insisted that I was not eligible. I rejected my wife’s insinuation that I had hypertension and therefore comorbidity. 🙂

However, from 1 april 2021, I too became eligible for vaccination. My wife and daughter were in any case pestering me for that. The nearest hospital where vaccination was being administered was at NE Railway main hospital located near my workplace. I found out that the vaccination time was from 9:30 to 10 AM or so. I arrived at the place. I was under the impression (based on erroneous media reports) that there would be very small number of people and the medical staff would be sitting idle waiting for people to come. I was mistaken. There was a big crowd of people. So there were so many people interesting in vaccination, unlike what some media houses were trying to portray. I collected the form and filled it up. Though there was a good crowd, it thinned out by the time it was 10:30. I came to know that a limited number of doses are brought from the local state government cold storage that had to be consumed on the same day. There is no method of getting the supply replenished on the same day. 68 number of doses were allotted to the hospital on that day and they got used up within one hour.

I wondered how I was going to be able to get myself vaccinated if this was the state of affairs. The problem was, I was trying to avail the vaccination facility like a common man, standing in a queue, whereas I should have done it like a VIP, which I was for the Railway hospital, seeing that I headed the Railway workshop that employed 60% of all Railway employees based in Gorakhpur. My workplace was easily the biggest industrial workplace in Gorakhpur.

The next day of vaccination in the hospital was 5 april 2021, viz the next monday. This time I took no chances and asked my steno to phone up the doctor incharge of vaccination informing him that I would like to get vaccinated on that day. I went there, through the doctor’s entrance rather than the public entrance, which I was told was jampacked. My workplace has a small health unit headed by a lady doctor and she too was available there to make fuss over me-“hato hato saahab aaye hain”, getting the doctor incharge of vaccination to come and greet me etc. and in general to get my vaccination fast tracked. I had already filled up my form the previous day itself. As ID proof, I had attached my Aadhaar Card. That data gets filled in a computer, which verifies the Aadhaar card from UIDAI site. That done, the lady doctor made sure that I was the first person of the day to get vaccinated. 🙂

The vaccinated people are supposed to stay there for half an hour under observation to see that no adverse effect takes place on them. I did not feel any adverse effect, so I informed the lady doctor and left for the workplace. From there I informed my wife and daughter that I had taken my first dose. My daughter asked me to immediately take one tablet of paracetomol then and another tablet in the evening. But I am not feeling any ill effects, I protested. Still my daughter ordered me to take one tablet immediately which I duly did.

I realised after some time that I did not get the vaccination certificate that my wife and daughter had got. I thought that I would be able to get it using my Aadhaar Card number and registered mobile number. I was not far off in my guess but I also needed another information, viz Beneficiary Reference ID, which gets generated during registration at the vaccination centre. I asked my steno to find out this Beneficiary Reference ID. The steno found it out and even downloaded my Vaccination certificate on a nice photographic paper and presented in to me. So I had my vaccination certificate at hand. Later I downloaded a pdf copy on my mobile too and shared it with my wife and daughter.

This certificate is a miracle of Digital India initiative.It gives everyone a clearcut and foolproof, fully traceable, six sigma quality documentation of the progress of vaccination in the country. The details of all vaccination get updated in real time and they then figure in the live figures of vaccination at the site named cowin.gov.in.

The vaccination certificate has all the relevant details one can think of namely beneficiary details (name, age, gender, ID verification details, residence) and also vaccination details (name of vaccine, date of dose, next due date, vaccinated by, and place of vaccination). The certificate also had a machine readable bar code.

VaccineCertificate

When one looks at the vaccine certificate of USA (left in the picture above), technologically the most advanced nation on earth, one finds that their vaccine certificate is quite amateurish and that can be easily manipulated and forged. Their certificate will not pass muster as a legally valid document as it hardly contains any details, just name, vaccine name and date, and an illegible signature. That is all. There is no unique ID (say Social security number) mentioned in the certificate. Israeli certificate (right on the picture above)on the other hand is professionally made, as is expected of them.

I have mentioned earlier that many media houses, and also political parties are trying disinformation campaigns about the vaccines. There are many less informed people who fall prey to such malicious disinformation campaign. One school friend of my daughter phoned her. Her father had fallen prey to one such youtube video and he was refusing to listen to anyone and he would not get himself vaccinated. Would my daughter try to convince him ? How could I, if you and your mother couldnot, but let me try- my daughter replied. So my daughter was connected on phone to her old friend’s father. He stated that this youtube uploader has given such gory details about the process of vaccine manufacture that no one with a conscious could ever get these vaccines. My daughter asked him to get the credentials of this video uploader verified on wikipedia etc. Was he a qualified medical practitioner or belonged to pharma industry ? If not then his facts were imaginary, she informed him. But the Indian vaccines have been develoed in just two months, so these vaccines are fake as informed by this uploader- he stated. My daughter advised him about the vaccine development stages, that there are five stages, each stage is stringent. Initally tests are conducted on animals, then on humans, then the vaccines get certified by a regulatory agency. All this has taken nearly a year. The covishield vaccine has been certified fit for use in several countries, and not just India. In any case, this vaccine is developed not in India, but in UK, and India is only producing it under license, my daughter informed him.

Two days later, my daughter’s friend phoned again, and thanked my daughter profusely. After my daughter’s talk, her father had checked up on the credentials of the youtube uploader and had realised that he was unqualified to discuss this matter. He also realised that the vaccines had passed all the stages that vaccines are required to pass. So he had gone to the nearest vaccine center and had got himself vaccinated. That way, my daughter may have helped bring peace and harmony to the disturbed household of her old school friend. I felt quite proud of my daughter. It means she has the ability to convince others, which is a good ability to have for anyone.

The fact that India is self reliant in covid vaccines and is even in a position to export it to half the countries of the world is a matter of great pride for all Indians. This has been made possible by those Indians ho have lived in India and have tried to make a difference in the country. For instance, Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotec are doing cutting edge work in their field. On this occasion of natinal and international emergency they have risen to the challenge and are helping the country fight this pandemic with confidence.

On this occasion, here is a song that catches the same feeling of national pride. This song is from “Swades”(2004). The song is sung and composed by A R Rahman. Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. This song plays in the background, hich the picturisation shows Shahrukh Khan, playing an NRI working in NASA dying to come back to India and give back to the nation. A very moving and inspirational song indeed !

Hullo Atuldom

“Dil Deewaana” (1974); written as ‘Dil Diwana’ in the movie’s titles; was a Rose Movies production i.e. Ramesh Behl was the producer and Narendra Bedi was the director. Though people feel it was a sequel of the successful “Jawaani Deewaani” (1972) I don’t think so.

The similarities in the two movies are the producer, director, main lead, music composer and lyricist were the same. While “Jawaani Deewaani” dealt with love between college-mates, family misunderstandings, and ‘rich-girl not-so-rich boy’ theme, “Dil Deewaana” had a rich, spoilt, playboy who tries to mend his ways when he encounters a girl working in his office. As per the norms of Hindi movies, Indian movies will be more appropriate, the girl is not-so-poor, is economically responsible for the day-to-day living of her family and is unimpressed with the economic standing of the boy. The rich boy Vijay (Randhir Kapoor), decides to introduce Nita (Jaya Bhaduri) to his doting grandma (Durga Khote) when his past catches up with him in the form of Gita (Aruna Irani), her brother Pyarelal (Manmohan) and an infant. There is one more character in this film Sunita (played by Komal a.k.a. Poonam Sinha) to add to the woes of the hero. All-in-all a normal masala movie which I recall having seen ages ago, during the days when doordarshan was the only channel available.

What has remained with me from that movie is Jaya Bhaduri playing a girl who had a mind of her own and made decisions for herself. In fact, she was one of the actresses in the ’70s, who played such roles very often and whose standing was on-par with her male co-star. I wouldn’t say that she was a great dancer like her contemporary Hema Malini (Jaya Bhaduri could put the correct foot forward and be in rhythm) but she was good in all other aspects.

I must admit that I was not a huge fan of hers, but I loved her in all the movies that I saw including “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham” (2001) with which she made a comeback to commercial movies. She had already restarted acting with “Hazaar Chaurasi ki Maa” in 1998 but that was essentially an art or middle-of-road movie which went unnoticed by the masses.

She is a Padma Shri winner along with a few Filmfare best actress awards to her name. She has been in the Hindi industry since 1971 when ‘Guddi’ released where she played a sweet, film-crazy teenager who is in love with her matinee idol Dharmendra. Of course she had already acted in a few Bengali movies before ‘Guddi’.
With this post we wish her on her 73rd birthday and also on completing 50 years in Bollywood.

‘Dil Deewaana” had six songs of which the blog has the following two:-

Song Date of posting
Jaa re jaa bewafa 9 April 2014
Sun Neeta main tere pyaar ke geet gaane lagaa hoon 30 April 2014

Today’s song is in a discotheque. We have Jaya in loud make-up but still looking dainty, pretty and cute. The song happens post Jaya inhaling some intoxicating smoke from Sharat Saxena. The song has all the elements that RD Burman was known to put in his songs- catchy tune, lot of ups and downs for the singer to race her voice through and she (Asha Bhosle) doesn’t disappoint. We have flashbacks of this song from Caravan (1971) in terms of insanely sane choreography. And it is to Jaya Bhaduri’s credit that she has pulled it off amazingly. Wish she had been offered more such dances and run-of-the mill glamour-doll roles, I wonder how she would have performed them.

———————————–————––——————————————–————
Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

Wo aaj apni mehfil mein
aaye huye hain
wo aaj apni mehfil mein
aaye huye hain en
jo kothhon ki raunaq
badhaaye huye hain
jo kothhon ki raunaq
badhaaye huye hain

jo dukaan apni ee
sajaaye huyehain ean
gali aur kooche
basaaye huee hain en
wo aaj apni mehfil mein
aaye huye hain

woh ghunghroo ki paayal ki jhankaar le kar
kuchh inkaar le kar
kuchh iqraar le kar
woh ghunghroo ki paayal ki jhankaar le kar
kuchh inkaar le kar
kuchh iqraar le kar
zara saudebaazi ki
takraar le kar
nigaahon mein bijli
chhupaaye huye hain
wo aaj apni mehfil mein aaye huye hain

hai apnaa banaane ke andaaz saare
ye gesu ye chitwan
adaayen ishaare
hai apnaa banaane ke andaaz saare
ye gesu ye chitwan
adaayen ishaare
milaa jo bhi uss se
kaha hain tumhaare
arey yeh dhokaa hai jo
ham bhi khaaye huye hain
wo aaj apni mehfil mein aaye huye hain

ye kothhon ki mallika
yeh koochon ki raani
ye bazaar ke manchalon ki jawaani
ye kothhon ki mallika
yeh koochon ki raani
ye bazaar ke manchalon ki jawaani
yeh aashiq mizaajon ki
rangeen kahaani
arey sitam saari duniya pe
dhaaye huye hain
wo aaj apni mehfil mein aaye huye hain
