Blog Day:

4700 Post No. : 16400

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 7
———————————–
30May – 05Jun, 2011

Celebrations today – the first item of order. Yes, the two numbers above are telling a telling tale (pardon the pun please). I have been on board now, well, it seems all my life now. Yes, so many years ago. And as we continue this relentless beat forward, I continue to keep marveling – at the fact that the blog seems to have gotten a life of its own and the bandwagon continues to chug along merrily.

It is stated often – the destination is not of any import. It is the journey that has to be enjoyed. And as this blog keeps growing from height to height and going from strength to strength, these minor milestones and even the major milestones have really become a matter of routine. Ok yes – another century, well, this number of days, well, this average of songs per day, well. . .  As I said, just a matter of routine that these stations come and go past quickly.

Ah but the journey – that is where the real joy is emerging. Yes, we had those days when 5,000th and 10,000th songs were such a big deal and Atulites of all shades were pinned to the emails and whatsapp chats as if the World Cup finals were on and both Gavaskar and Tendulkar were on crease, going full blast. I am sure the regulars have those days cemented into memory. The heady heights that we used to cheer and celebrate about.

I do not mean to say that we do not or will not continue to celebrate the milestones. But the drummer’s beat has changed somewhat. The magic of the daily routine is just unbelievable. There is such a serene comfort in the incessant regularity. A trust, a confidence, just like the Sun rising every day (well, some rare days may have clouds also). But then the Sun is there, and will appear in all its glory tomorrow morning again.

I know that most bandwagoneers will agree with me – the blog has become a foundational regularity in life, and whether or not I will open the browser early morning, I know that a new post will be there.

A new post, a new song – another gem to ruminate on today, from the ocean that is the Hindi film song. With the incessant dipping into this ocean every day, and the incessant pulling up of pearls and gems of the first water – one starts to believe. Starts to believe that there is a blessing that has descended on this concept, and the upon the fortunate ones who are connected with it, making our own, and many other lives meaningful.

The heart brims over, the mind stalls, the words slow down – enough been said, and yet, more than that enough still remains to be said. I had come across a quote from Rumi couple of days back – “The closer I get, the more I see how far I am”.

And the bandwagon chugs along. . .

4,700 days, 16,400 posts. And you must consider, the number of songs contained therein are much more – on account of multi part and multi version songs. By my tally of data that we are maintaining, the song count stands today, with this post – 17,010.

And there is still an ocean awaiting us. . .

Ok so, the week that was 30th May to 5th June in 2011 – the summer of 2011. Goodness, one of the slowest weeks I have written about in this series so far. Three dot days, four active days, and a total of 13 posts published. Atul ji, where were you located in the summer of 2011?

Let’s do the numbers first. A total of 13 posts and 12 films are showcased. One film ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) comes in with two posts.

We had 4 debut films this week. No films got yippeee’d during the week. Of the 12 films that got featured, 7 films have since been yippeee’d. If we factor in the possibly untraceable songs, then we have two more films being Yippeee’d conditionally. Hmm, that is a very good %. Only three films out of the 12 posted, are still showing the pending status.

Looking at the distribution by decades, we have the following data,

1930s   1
1940s   5
1950s   6
1970s   1

Majority focus is on the Godlen Era.

No milestones got breached this week.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

After a no show on 30th May, the next day (31st May) has three films that featured on the blog – ‘Tansen’ (1943), ‘Meena Bazaar’ (1950) and ‘Do Phool’ of 1958. All three films have been Yippeee’d. And that actually posed a problem for me.

On 1st June, again three posts and three films – ‘Bhakt Soordas’ (1942), ‘Bholi’ (1949) and ‘Hyderabad Ki Naazneen’ (1952). ‘Bhakt Soordas’ is now already at the conditional Yippeee status. One song of this film, “Manuva Krishan Naam Rate Jaa.” is not traceable. No record was cut, and since the film is not available as yet, no way to say whether and how this song was presented in the film.

‘Hyderabad Ki Naazneen’ is Yippeee’d. And then ‘Bholi’ from 1949 still has many songs to go.

The problem that I mentioned in the 2nd previous paragraph, is that I do not have an available film from 31st May, to select a song for the post. And so I had to resort to pick a song from 1st June, and that to from, film ‘Bholi’, the only film from that date still having pending status.

On 2nd June, four films were added. ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954), ‘Chor Bazaar’ (1954) and ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ from 1977 have already been Yippeee’d.  The film ‘Zameen Ke Taare’ still remains pending.

‘Mirza Ghalib’ also featued in the post list on 3rd June. Two more films came up that day – ‘Pooran Bhagat’ (1933) and ‘Bhanwra'(1944). ‘Mirza Ghalib’ being Yippeee’d already, ‘Bhanwara’ entered the conditional Yippeee status, since all songs of this film are posted, except for one, the song being ” Yeh Dua Maango Haseenon Aashikon Ka Dum Rahe” is still to be traced. That leaves behind ‘Pooran Bhagat’ from 1933 which still has a lot of songs still awaiting to be posted.

The song that I have selected from ‘Bholi’ for this post here today, is a gem of a rendition by Shamshad Begum. This song is vintage Shamshad. One can clearly hear the ‘khanak’ in the voice, as she goes on to present a song of first realization of love. The words are very craftily woven by Ishwar Chandra Kapoor and the music is by Pt. Gobind Ram. A beautiful creation by any standards.

‘Bholi’ is produced under the banner of Murli Movietone, Bombay, and is directed by Ram Daryani. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Prem Adeeb, Shashikala, Jeevan, Gulab, Khatoon, Nazeera, Sheila, Ishu, Gope, and Nawab. There are 10 songs listed, all from the pen of Ishwar Chandra Kapoor with music by Pt Gobind Ram.

Ok so, I have not used this word so far in the article.

But yes, Congratulations – very much in order.

Congratulations to us all.

Song – Piya Piya Tu Bol Papiha, Din Phaagun Ke Aaye  (Bholi) (1949) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor, MD – Gobind Ram

Lyrics (Provided by Prakash ji)

piya piya tu bol papiha
din phagun ke aaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

piya piya tu bol papiha
din phagun ke aaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

ek daal pe khila hai genda
dooje daal chameli
koyal ban kar baag mein aayi
dulhan nai naveli
ek daal pe khila hai genda
dooje daal chameli
koyal ban kar baag mein aayi
dulhan nai naveli
phoolon ke kaanon mein apne dil ki baat sunaaye
jiya mera dola jaaye
phoolon ke kaanon mein apne dil ki baat sunaaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

piya piya tu bol papiha
din phagun ke aaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

aaj kisi ne chhed diye hain
man veena ke taar
aaj kisi ne chhed diye hain
man veena ke taar
do matwaare nainanwa mein
naach raha hai pyaar
haan haan
naach raha hai pyaar
aankhen dil se ye kehti hain
hans hans kar lut jaaye
aankhen dil se ye kehti hain
hans hans kar lut jaaye

piya piya tu bol papiha
din phagun ke aaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

piya piya tu bol papiha
din phagun ke aaye
jiya mera dola jaaye

पिया पिया तू बोल पपीहा
दिन फागुन के आए
जिया मेरा डोला जाये

पिया पिया तू बोल पपीहा
दिन फागुन के आए
जिया मेरा डोला जाये

एक डाल पे खिला है गेंदा
दूजे दाल चमेली
कोयल बन कर बाग में आई
दुल्हन नई नवेली
एक डाल पे खिला है गेंदा
दूजे दाल चमेली
कोयल बन कर बाग में आई
दुल्हन नई नवेली
फूलों के कानों में अपने दिल की बात सुनाये
जिया मेरा डोला जाये
फूलों के कानों में अपने दिल की बात सुनाये
जिया मेरा डोला जाये

पिया पिया तू बोल पपीहा
दिन फागुन के आए
जिया मेरा डोला जाये

आज किसी ने छेड़ दिये हैं
मन वीणा के तार
आज किसी ने छेड़ दिये हैं
मन वीणा के तार
दो मतवाले नैननवा में
नाच रहा है प्यार
हाँ हाँ
नाच रहा है प्यार
आँखें दिल से ये कहती हैं
हंस हंस कर लुट जाये

पिया पिया तू बोल पपीहा
दिन फागुन के आए
जिया मेरा डोला जाये

पिया पिया तू बोल पपीहा
दिन फागुन के आए
जिया मेरा डोला जाये
