In Memory of Mahatma Gandhi – the father of the nation.
——————————————————————-

Eknath Easwaran writes in the preface of a book:

“In India, Mahatma Gandhi is officially Father of the Nation. Under his leadership India attained freedom from the British Empire through a 30-year campaign based on complete non-violence that ended with both sides allied in respect and friendship. That alone will secure his place in the history books, but not necessarily his place in a series of the world’s spiritual classics.”

He says further:
“One of the first lessons Gandhi learned in South Africa was to begin by bringing people together onto higher ground. India was exploitable because it exploited our own people. We were weak because we were divided into innumerable factions, each seeking its own gain, making it simple to play us against each other – an old Roman empire tactic practiced by the East India Company and made official imperial policy after the mutiny (1857). His analysis made perfect sense, once grasped, but it wasn’t a matter of politics to Gandhi. It was the obvious corollary of the unity of life, in which the welfare of all of us together was bound up with those whom the poet Rabindranath Tagore called “the lowest, the lowliest, and the lost.”

Those ideas sound conventional enough today, but to put them into proactive is always a shock. In India they caused an earthquake. By linking independence with the way, we treated one another, Gandhi shook the country from top to bottom. Gandhi made a cornerstone of his campaign for national freedom the freedom of those whom the rest of India called “untouchable”. He campaigned for them from the Himalayas to India’s southernmost tip.

Everywhere he told us that all of us were one and that we would never have the unity to throw off foreign rule, or even be worthy of self-government, until we ceased exploiting our own people……..It was an impossible appeal because it attacked ways of thinking ground deep into unconscious conditioning for countless generations. Yet people all over India responded……..The man had to walk! And with equal joy and amazement India rose too.

These are some of the quotes of Mahatma Gandhi’s various writings and editorials:
“For me patriotism is the same as humanity. I am patriot because I am human and humane. It is not exclusive. I will not hurt England or Germany to serve India……The law of the patriot is not different from the law of the patriarch. And a patriot is so much a patriot, if he is a lukewarm humanitarian. There is no conflict between private and political law. A non-cooperator, for instance, would act exactly in the same manner towards his father or brother as he is today acting towards the (British) Government.” – Young India, March 16, 1921.

“Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” – Young India, January 8, 1925.

“A man is but a product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.” – Ethical religion.

This song I am presenting is from an unreleased movie titled “Bapu ka Sapna”. The song is not really talking about Mahatma Gandhi, but pays tribute to his philosophy in the beginning, with these lines:

Eeshwar Allah tero naam
Sab ko sanmati de bhagwaan

This is the only song recorded for this film, as per the list on myswar.com. There is an interesting story about how found this song. Today 30th January is also the 93rd birthday of an actor of repute in hindi and Marathi films, theatre and TV, Ramesh Deo. When I saw his name in the anniversary page, I remembered a video the a Rafi song filmed on Ramesh Deo in a black in a white film. I had seen it a few days ago and thought I had saved the details somewhere. I started looking for it but could not find it. I searched for the song on youtube, but found another song in colour, a duet of Rafi sahab and Usha Mangeshkar. Then I looked for the imdb page on him for his filmography (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0219946/) , where I found this film “Bapu ka sapna”.
January 30 is also 74th anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, I decided to post this song from the film, that was starred Ramesh Deo, but never released. For Ramesh Deo, this birthday post had appeared in 2018.

(Kaun sachcha hai kaun jhoothha hai).
Ramesh Deo was commonly seen in movies of 70’s and 80’s with his wife Seema Deo, in character roles. Notable film I remember is ‘Anand’.

I found these posts which are posted in the blog on the occasion of his death anniversary:

Kahaa raam hey raam
Mohandas Karanchand Gandhi para pujaari ahinsa ke
Jai bolo Mahatma Gandhi ki
Suno suno ae duniyaawaalon

There are many more posts celebrating October 2nd as Gandhi ji’s birth anniversary, but I find that the death anniversary posts have ceased after 2015. No matter, this can soon be rectified.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. says, “Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress. Gandhi is inescapable…….we may ignore him at our own risk.”
Mahatma Gandhi returned to India in 1915, after having spent 20 years in South Africa, spearheading civil right movements there. Having gone to Britain to study law as a young man, returned to India to practice law and shifted to South Africa to practice law, but turned into a civil activist, fighting for the human rights of native Indians there, the experience and exposure to varied issues of humans was instrumental in shaping the man and his intellectual abilities.
What use is the higher education, or the study in the world’s best universities, if one is not able to make use of the advantages it gives, the broadening of mental horizons it entails, to have a true arial view of the issues at hand. Arial view, as in watching a scene, as not a part of the scene, but from the outside.
People of my generation can only imagine, those times, when Gandhi ji was assassinated, so soon after the independence and partition of the cohesive entity that the United State of India, was becoming. From all accounts Gandhi ji was opposed to the partition of the country, and surprisingly, he was not assassinated before 15th August 1947. He is said to have eventually agreed to the partition but his disillusionment with the other leaders is well known. And it is not surprising that he opposed the partition, as it is the very antithesis of his philosophy of unity of ‘highest with the lowest’. The have’s and the have not’s, in other words. I also think, that the visionary in him, is bound have expected this to happen. That a colonial power, having seen the dare-devilry and bravery of all those who opposed their colonisation, and made them struggle for 2 long years, in attaining control of the various kingdoms and states, the cultural and spiritual power of an ancient civilization, with rich natural and human resources, the intellectual power (that the visionaries of united India, could see as a future super power, not just a soft power), were never going to leave the sub-continent intact. They had vast experiences in destroying the united forces, and they toiled for full 5 years, to dismantle ‘the ottoman empire’ brick by brick, brick by brick. The writings were on the wall, and Gandhi could do nothing to stop it. But eventually, paid the price for his high ideals with his life.
And today, the same world powers are hunting for a new ‘theatre of war’, to sell their arms and ammunitions which can revive their fledging economies. Big economies, liberalised one’s are relatively safe, as they can’t be put to flames in a war. So, our visionary economists have done well to liberalise the Indian economy in the 90’s.
It is never the time to not remember and remind ourselves of the gandhian principles of non-violence and non-violent solutions. I had heard some predictions that 3rd world war is going to be for ‘water’ and 4th one will be fought for parking. This joke apart, the wars are still over power, money, money power and power money.
Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy and his preaching of non-violence methods of struggle, have gone on to be emulated in various freedom and civil rights movements the world over. I have seen Richard Attenborough’s ‘Gandhi’(1982), where Ben Kingsley played the role of Mahatma Gandhi and won an Oscar for his efforts. I agree with those people, who thought that future generations, will be seeing Ben Kingsley’s movie stills and think that this is the real Gandhi.
In just over 30 years, of Mahatma Gandhi’s involvement in the freedom struggle, he has to his credit, many successful movements. Non-cooperation movement, the swadeshi movement, dandi march, the jail bharo movement are notable in this struggle. Sustaining such a movement for this long in a country full of poor people, is no small task. It required great leadership and mobilization of collective imagination. They imagined ‘swaraj’ and freedom, so they believed in it and achieved it. It is the full truth that every movement and revolutions start in the mind. That is exactly the reason he is hailed as among the greatest of leaders in human history.
I consider it prudent to repeat what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said about Gandhi:
“Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress. Gandhi is inescapable…….we may ignore him at our own risk.”

Okay, I have said enough. So, we move on to the rare song from ‘Bapu ka Sapna’. The singers are Mukesh, Hemlata accompanied by chorus. Lyrics are by Taajdar Taj and Ratandeep-Hemraj are the composers.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 166 # Missing Films of 1972 – 11#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Parivartan’ which was released in the year 1972. Like the earlier missing movies of this year 1972 this must also be one of the obscure movies of its time.

‘Parivartan’ was directed by DS Sultania for DS Pictures, Calcutta. It had Ranjit Mallick, Heena Kausar, Manisha, Sudha Shivpuri, Bhaskar Choudhury, Anoop Kumar, Ravi Ghosh, Subrat Chatterjee, Lalita Chatterjee, Mam Mukherjee, Smt. Sushila, Shekhar Chatterjee, Dyanesh Mukherjee, Rasraj Chakravarty, Shambhu Bhattacharya, Guddu, Rajiv, Hanumant Sethia, Baba Majgaonkar, Jayshree T, and others. Utpal Dutt and Jalal Agha make guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1972 with restricted viewing certificate that is ‘A’ Certificate (for adults only).

This movie has three songs. Songwriters Neeraj and Nawal have penned one song each. For remaining one song the lyricists name is not mentioned in HFGK page of this movie. Two music directors viz. Chand Pardesi and MK Pujari composed one song each and for one song again the composer’s name is not mentioned in HFGK. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Composer
01 Tan Bhi Jaley, Man Bhi Jaley, Raat Bhi Jaley Manna Dey, Hemlata Chand Pardesi
02 Roothho Naa Sarkaar Hamse Pyaar Karo Naa Kishore Kumar MK Pujari
03 Dil Se Mere Jo Tera Dil Miley Not mentioned.          –

Today’s song is written by Neeraj and sung by Manna Dey and Hemlata. I guess it must be picturised on Ranjit Mallick and Heena Kausar. Music for today’s song is composed by Chand Pardesi. With this song the movie ‘Parivartan’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and Hemlata. I came across this song only during the preparation of this post and had never heard it earlier. A good song to listen and only its audio is available. So far one more song from this movie sung by Kishore Kumar is also available on internet sources. However, no video or any additional information about this movie seems to be available now.

Let us now listen to the today’s song and welcome ‘Parivartan-1972’ on the blog 😊

Today’s song is from the film Maharathi Karna-1944.

Karna is an interesting and a great character from Mahabharat. What most people know about Karna is that he was a ” Daan shoor ” or a great Donor. It is said that no one, who went to him to ask for anything, returned without getting it. There are many stories eulogizing his quality. But karna was much more than just this. He was a great Warrior. Though he was the king of Anga Desh (today’s Bihar/Bengal), he knew that he was indebted to the Kauravas for this honour.

Karna was aware that he was helping those who were in the wrong, but he was helpless in this case. He always felt that a lot of injustice was done to him by Destiny. He knew that he was the illegitimate child born to an unmarried Kunti. This made him the Eldest ” Pandava”, but he was denied his rights due to his birth – a matter which he had no control on! Embittered, he joined the opposition – the Kauravas, who gave him all the honours- only because he was a great Warrior and on their side.

Because of this, Karna had to keep quiet when a helpless Draupadi was being disrobed by his friend Duryodhan, before all the people. Not for anything else, but for this crime, he was killed when he became helpless due to breakage of his Chariot in the midst of the war, in spite of his cry that this was against the war rules- Adharm ! Lord Shrikrishna ensured that he got his punishment.

Those who have read Mahabharat, can you tell whyLord Shri Krishna had entered the Great War but did not fight himself ? Very few persons will know that Shri Krishna entered the great war not to ensure the victory of Pandavas. He had his own agenda. He wanted to ensure that some warriors got their punishment for their sins.

Duryodhana was killed because he disrobed a helpless woman, Jayadrath was killed because he was responsible for the death of Abhiumanyu in the Chakravyuh, Bhishma was kept on arrow-bed to see his kin getting killed before his eyes, for keeping quiet when Draupadi was disrobed, Dhritrashtra had to bear all his 100 sons killed because he never stopped them from doing sins. Not only Kauravas, but even Arjun, Yudhishthir, Balram etc got punished in other ways during the great war.

Film ” Maharathi Karna ” was also made in 1928 in the Silent era. The role of Karna was done by Balasaheb Yadav in that film. The film was directed by Damle and Fattelal, for Basburao Painter’s Maharashtra Film company. Bhalji Pendharkar was the assistant Director. This story of Karna fascinated him so much that at the first opportunity he remade this film, under his own Banner.

Besides the story, there was one more reason to make this film. When the silent film was being made in 1928, Bhalji first met Leela Chandragiri, his consort of many years. Ofcourse she was in her teens then, Later she got married and had children too before they came together again at a later time. In this film in 1944, Leela had an important role. One more actor – Indurao T Nimbalkar had acted in the Silent film of 1928. He was called again to do the same role in the 1944 film too.

Bhalji Perndharkar had initial training in Baburao Painter’s Maharashtra Film Company and later in Shantaram’s Prabhat Film company. So his basics were well founded. Shri BHALJI PENDHARKAR ( 03 May 1897 – 26 November 1994 ), was Film Director, Writer, Producer & Actor, of Marathi and Hindi films. Bhal ji Pendharkar (Bhalchandra Gopal Pendharkar) was the son of Dr.Gopal Pendharkar, the Royal Physician of Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur state and his partner Radhabai. Dr. Gopal was already married to another lady. This couple gave birth to Bhalji and Baburao Pendharkar. Their mother Radhabai left Dr. Gopal Pendharkar and married Damodar Karnataki. They had two sons- Master Vinayak (father of Baby Nanda), famous actor, director, producer and a studio owner and his brother Vasudev- who became a Cameraman. Kamalabai, the younger sister of Radhabai married Rajaram Vankudre and they had 2 sons- V.Shantaram, famous actor, director,producer and a studio owner and his brother V. Awadhoot- equally famous Cinematographer.

Prabhat Film company shifted to Poona, but actress Leela Chandragiri chose to stay back in Kolhapur and decided to work with Bhalji Pendharkar. They became attracted to each other and got married. Leela had a son (Jaysingh) and a daughter(Madhavi- who married Marathi author Ranjit Desai. She also wrote one book.) already, but Bhalji adopted both children and gave them father’s love. Even Bhalji had one son from his first marriage-Prabhakar. Later, when they built their own studio, it was given the name Jayprabha. It combined his two sons’ names, JAYsingh and PRABHAkar.

During the riots in 1948, arising after Gandhi’s death, their Jayprabha studio was burnt, because Bhalji was a Brahmin. However, within few years he built it again. After Bhalji’s death the studio was purchased by Lata Mangeshkar.

Bhalji started his career in the era of silent films. He was associated with Prabhat Film Company’s earliest talkies, and also worked with other studios in hometown of Kolhapur. Later he acquired his own studio in the form of Jayprabha Studio and became a film producer and director. He also wrote lyrics for some film songs in Marathi. His more famous films are: Netaji Palkar, Thoratanchi Kamala, Chhatrapati Shivaji, Mohityanchi Manjula, Maratha Tituka Melvava, Sadhi Manse, Tambdi Maati. Hindi: Maharathi Karna, Valmiki, Chhatrapati Shivaji, Ganimi Kawa. He directed 9 Hindi films from 1932 to 1952.

A few years before his death, Bhalji was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award by the Indian Government in 1991.

Bhalji had two wives. One of whom, Leela Chandragiri, acted and sang in Hindi and Marathi films in 1930s and 40s, under the name Miss Leela. Bhalji’s son Prabhakar Pendharkar (1933 – 2010) was associated with making of Do Aankhen Barah Haath in 1950s, wrote the book रारंगढांग, and was author-director of noteworthy documentaries. Bhalji’s daughter Madhavi (? – 2013) author of ‘Naach Ga Ghuma’, was wife of renowned Marathi author Ranjeet Desai.

The cast of film Maharathi Karna-1944 was Prithviraj, Durga Khote, Leela, Nimbalkar, Shahu Modak, K N Singh, Swarnalata, Vasantrao pehelwan etc etc. Let us know more about this Nimbalkar. I.T.Nimbalkar aka Indurao T. Nimbalkar ( he was always credited as only ‘ Nimbalkar ‘ in all films) was born on 6-12-1893, in Kolhapur state. This was the time Kolhapur was slowly developing as Kalapur (hub of arts) and the seeds of film making were being planted there. Baburao Painter, one of the original film makers had started his ” Maharashtra Film Company” on 1-12 1917.

Baburao, Damle, Fattelal etc were taught painting By Anandrao painter, who was an extraordinary painter of those times. All these people, along with V Shantaram, Keshavrao Dhaiber and few more also joined Baburao painter’s Maharashtra Film company. True that, film making had started even earlier in Maharashtra, but Baburao painter is credited with making films a form of art and spreading it on a larger canvas of India.

Indurao Nimbalkar grew up in this atmosphere in Kolhapur. He passed his Matriculation exam and also did a diploma in Printing. Nimbalkar was six feet tall and had a good physique. He was expert in riding, swimming and wrestling. He did 1000 sit-ups every day. Shahu Maharaj, the king of Kolhapur encouraged all arts as well as development of lower castes. Arya Samaj had a ‘ Gurukul’ in Kolhapur. Impressed with Nimbalkar’s education and body, Shahu ji appointed him as Editor of the weekly ‘ Arya’ and secretary of Gurukul.

One day Baburao Painter, along with assistant V Shantaram visited his press and offered Nimbalkar a role in his proposed film Sairandhri. Shahu Maharaj also permitted and encouraged him ,so Nimbalkar joined the film line. He was already famous due to his fiery editorials and now people came to see his shootings too. However, due to money shortage, the film did not complete. ( It was later made in 1919, but with different cast. V Shantaram made coloured Sairandhri in 1933 with Nimbalkar again).

Nimbalkar acted in many silent films like Baji Deshpande, Khazanchi (directed by Moti gidwani- England returned), Lanka, Kismet (directed by Baburao Patel) etc etc. After the closure of Maharashtra F. Co., Nimbalkar was invited by V Shantaram to do Vishvamitra’s role in its first Talkie film ” Ayodhya ka Raja” -1932, in Hindi and Marathi. After this, he did Jalti Nishani-32, Sairandhri-33, Maya Machhindra-32, Sinhagadh-23 etc.

After this, Nimbalkar went to Calcutta on invitation and worked in films made by Radha Films, Laxmi Studios, Devdatta films and New Theatres. From 1934 to 1938, he acted in 12 Hindi films. He was provided a Bungalow, car with driver, servants etc. His son studied in local school there. Returning to Bombay he worked as an assistant director to Keshavrao Dhaiber for film ‘Nandkumar’-38, made by his Jayashree Films. Next 2 years he shuttled between Calcutta and Bombay. He did King Dashrath’s role in Prakash films’ Bharat Milap-42 and Ramrajya-43 in this period.

He was invited by V Shantaram for acting in his first film under banner of Rajkamal- Shakuntala-43. Nimbalkar did the role of Kanva Muni in it. He later also acted in Jeevan yatra-46, Subah ka tara-54, Parchhain-52, Teen batti char rasta-53, Toofan aur Diya-56, Z Z Payal baje-55. Earlier he did Aapki sewa mein-47, Prarthana-44,Nal Damayanti-45, Seedha Rasta-41, Gokul-46, Apna Ghar-42, Maharathi karna-44, Seeta Swayamvar-48. He worked in Pyasa-57, Mera Naam Joker-70, Amar Prem-60 etc etc. From 1928 to 1970 he acted in over 250 films.

His wife Sushila was also educated and looked after his home and children. She never visited any sets in her life time. Nimbalkar died on 17-1-1973 at Kolhapur. (Thanks to an article in book Chandraat-चांदरात by Babu Moshoi, in addition to my notes, HFGK, muVyz, CRTWF, Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema and Film India magazines).

There were only 6 songs in the film, composed by K.Datta aka Datta Korgaonkar. Today’s song is the 2nd song to feature here.

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 165 # Missing Films of 1972 – 10#
——————————————

We are adding the missing movies of 1972 on the blog. Obviously, these are the movies which are itself obscure type or which remain lesser-known movies. I think the today’s movie is one such movie. Because I do not remember to have heard about it earlier or read about it or ever listen to its songs earlier.

Today’s movie is ‘Naag Panchami’. We already have one movie titled as ‘Naag Panchami’ from the year 1953 on the blog.

The fim is directed by Babubhai Mistry for Mewad Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj Kapoor, Jayshree Gadkar, Ashish Kumar, Jayshree T, Mridula, Shashikala, Ratnamala, Johny Whisky, Manhar Desai, Sudarshan Dheer, Satyendra Sharma, Vatsala Deshmukh, Roopali, Kavita, Maya, Arvind Pandya, Shree Bhagwan, Shrikant Soni, Pal Sharma, Anandkand Tiwari, Radheshyam, Sunita, Payal, Renuka Rachana, Poonam, Dhreerendra Kumar Thakur, Chandan, Vijay, Shiraj Khanna, Shashiraj, Swarnachandra Gupta, Anand Kumar, Naghma, Sushil Kumar Maurya, Yogesh Khanna and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.02.1972.

This movie has four songs penned by Indeewar. Music for this movie is composed by Ravi. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Sajne do angana rachne do mehendi Asha Bhonsle
02 Main nadiyaa ki dhaara, baahen teri kinaara Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar
03 Ae nagin jaa bas apne dwaare Lata Mangeshkar
04 Naa jaane tere bhaag mein kya hai …Bharat ki naari hai tu Kishore Kumar

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. On screen Jayshree Gadkar and Ashish Kumar are lip-syncing for Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar’s voice respectively. This song a duet song is a romantic song. On listening the song, the beginning of the song may remind one well known composition of music director Ravi. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

With the today’s song this movie ‘Naag Panchami’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. Today’s movie is at number 84 in this list.

‘Naseehat’ (1967) was produced by Dara Singh (though Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Today (28 January 2022) is the 17th remembrance day of OP Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). On this occasion here is a song from “Naseehat”(1967).

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot and Mahendra Kapoor. SH Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by OP Nayyar.

The song is picturised as a dance song aboard a cruise liner. The music begins as a Beatles type western tune on guitar, but it soon gets converted into an arch-typical OP Nayyar punjabi bhangda dance music. The female dancers could be Helen or even her clone Madumati (both figure in the star cast). Male dancer could be Randhawa. I am not sure So I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancers and others seen in the picturisation.

[Ed Note: As dear Prakash ji confirms, the lead dancers are Madhumati and Sheila Ramchandra, and two of the supporting dancers are Manjula and late Saroj Khan.]


Song-Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi (Naseehat)(1967) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kamal Barot, Lyrics-SH Bihari, MD-OP Nayyar

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 09#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Mehmil’. It is one of those movies from the year 1972 which is yet to be represented on the blog.

‘Mehmil’ is directed by Vibhuti Mishra for Mitra Productions, Bombay. The list of actors includes Farah, Shiv Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Vibhuti Mishra, Indrani Dutt, Pratima Devi, Mona, Jayant Bhatt, Pankaj, Tun Tun, Shekhar Purohit, Prem Mubarak, Prem Pujari, Yunus Bihari, Sitara, Lakshmi, Jeniffer, Shareefa, Dulari, Rajkumari and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.10.1972.

This movie has five songs – four penned by Kafil Azar and one song penned by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Sonik-Omi. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-1) Asha Bhonsle
02 Hamen milnaa thhik nahin Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri jaan hai sona Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi
04 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-2) Omi
05 Kaash main ladki hota Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Omi and when I listen this song the very first time, I liked it very much. Omi’s singing in this song is something special that leaves one humming this song after it ends. And it grows as we listen to it more. I had earlier presented the title song of ‘Ek Khilaadi Baawan Pattey’ sung by him. It would be interesting to know how many songs he had sung in HFM so far.

Well, HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) lists the today’s song in two parts. However, on all sources only this Omi version is available. Though some sources give the link with the name of singer Asha Bhonsle but have uploaded the same song sung by Omi. I tried to locate the female version but could not find it so far. Till then we will enjoy this song in the voice of Omi. We will add the female version to today’s post if it is made available later.

The videos of the songs of ‘Mehmil’ are also not available and neither is the movie available online. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Meaning of ‘Mehmil’ as taken from Rekhta.org

(maḥmil n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ c.)

(A maḥmil (n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ &c.), s.m. That by which anything is supported, that in (or on) which anything is borne; that which carries the double load of a camel, a camel’s saddle; a camel litter or dorser (in which women travel).

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 after adding the today’s movie and till the today’s movie alphabetically. Today’s movie is the 76th in this alphabetical list.
Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Maanavta’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Tere Vishal Hriday Ne Paai, Saaton Saagar KI Gehraai“.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now.
  2. The film ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was a presentation of poetry by selected iconic poets of our country, of that time.
  3. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

 

Song – Kitna Hai Soona Soona Mehmil Hamaara Re (Mehmil) (1972) Singer – Omi, Lyrics – Kafil Azar, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re
aa jaaye saathi koyi ban ke sahaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

sapnon ka dil mein mela hai ae
phir bhi ye dil akela hai
ho koi hamsafar to ho miley bhola bhaala
le le jo haath haathon mein ae
jaadu ho jiski baaton mein
ke meri nazar ko o lage wo niraala
dekhe zamaana usey itna ho pyaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

aaya thha ban ke saathi jo o
nikla ajeeb raahi wo
ho mujhe kya samajh ke ae
milaa thha wo jhoothha
chheda jo main afsaana aa
us ko banaaya deewaana
o zara door chalke ae mujh se wo roothha
samjha na baatein meri
haaye bechaara re ae
aaya thha saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

सपनों का दिल में मेला है
फिर भी ये दिल अकेला है
हो कोई हमसफर तो हो मिले भोला भाला
ले ले जो हाथ हाथों में
जादू हो जिसकी बातों में
के मेरी नज़र को ओ लगे वो निराला
देखे ज़माना उसे इतना हो प्यारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

आया था बनके साथी जो
निकला अजीब राही वो
हो मुझे क्या समझ के
मिला था वो झूठा
छेड़ा जो मैंने अफसाना
उसको बनाया दीवाना
ज़रा दूर चल के मुझसे वो रूठा
समझा ना बातें मेरी
हाए बेचारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 13
————————————————————————————–
This day ten years ago viz 27 January 2012 was a lean day for the blog. Just one song was covered on that day. The song was Chhaaya hai samaa mera dil hai jawaan from “Qaidi”(1957). The movie made its debut in the blog with this song.

“Qaidi”(1957) was produced by F C Mehra and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Eagle Films, Bombay. The movie had Padmini, Suresh, Anwar Hussain, Helen, Agha, Ragini, Leela, Johny Walker, M Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Rajan Kapoor etc.in it. This ‘B’ grade action-oriented film was released in January 1957, exactly 65 years ago.

Today, exactly ten years later after the movie made its debut in the blog, seven out of 8 songs of “Qaidi”(1957)have been represented in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
5349 Chhaaya hai samaa mera dil hai jawaan 27 January 2012 Asha Bhonsle, Rafi
6496 Yoon muskura ke saamne aaya na keejiye 22 August 2012 Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
10777 Kuchh to aisi baat kar zaalim 28 January 2015 Asha Bhonsle
13356 Hamse bhi aate jaate aankh milaana door se 22 June 2017 Asha Bhonsle
13842 O sainyya ja ja ja ja ja 26 December 2017 Asha Bhonsle
14040 Dekh li teri ada aji bas shukriya 9 February 2018 Shamshad Begam
16641 Bedardi preet nahin jaani 29 October 2021 Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar

That leaves us with just one song from “Qaidi”(1957) to be covered in the blog. Here is that song.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007 whose 15th remembrance day falls on 28 January.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the eight songs from “Qaidi”(1957) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This movie gets the distinction of getting YIPPEED in the blog in exactly ten years (3653 days)!

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic Day to every Indian on this earth. It is 73 years since The Indian Constitution came into effect replacing the Government of India Act and turning the nation into a newly formed Republic.

Various videos have started doing rounds on the social media over the last few days, and the one that is shared the most is this one. This video has Cyrus Broacha, the theatre and television personality who excels in tongue-in-cheek satire, quiz a few youngsters about what they think of the national holidays- 15th August and 26sup>th January. I don’t know if I should feel sad about the replies that the respondents gave or feel ashamed of how little information we have passed on to the generation that followed ours – we being the generation that followed those who had worked towards independence for India and making it a Sovereign Democratic Republic. (I myself didn’t know answers to few of the questions).

Here I am reminded of this post by Peevesie where she has expressed her thoughts on National pride, patriotism, and the behaviour of the citizens when such national days approach. I am sure that the thoughts in there would open no-holds and no-age barred debates, and evoke sentimental responses all around.

I don’t want to continue the lament so I just came back to the spirit of this blog which is music.

Over the last few years we have had a few films which were based on Real achievements of this vast country of ours. Atulji has written some highly educative and informative posts for songs from these movies (one reading of these posts is not enough to understand the spirit behind these National achievements).

The posts are almost like an insiders’ view, as he works for one of the largest employers of the country, the Indian Railways which is instrumental in binding the country into one whole unit. The other large employer being the Armed Forces. These two organisations of the country work relentlessly 24/7 and salute to them.
These are the posts Shubh din aayo; dil mein Mars hai which speak of modern India’s achievements that should make very Indian proud (I don’t know if every Indian knows everything about India.)

Before beginning this post, I just went over the songs posted in the blog on the very first Republic day (for the blog) and found these

Song Posted at
Ye desh hai veer jawaanon ka (posted at 7.46 a.m.)
Mere desh ki dharti sona ugle (posted at 7.54 a.m.)
Dulhan chali o pahan chali (posted at 7.59 a.m.)
Hai pree jahaan ki reet sada (posted at 8.15 a.m.)
Abke baras (posted at 8.34 a.m.)
Chhodo kal ki baaten (posted at 8.47 a.m.)

As can be seen from above, there were six patriotic songs on that date, all posted well before 9 a.m. I am sure post this activity Atulji would have left for the official flag unfurling program at his work place.

Here I would like to mention that Flag Hoisting takes place on Independence day and Flag Unfurling for Republic Day. Also the main celebrations for the country happens in New Delhi -the national capital- where the Prime Minister hoists the National flag and addresses the nation on Independence day from the ramparts of the Red fort and The President unfurls the flag on Rajpath – the venue of the Republic Day parade. The President, being the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, presides over the Republic Day parade. The Republic Day celebrations begin with the Prime Minister paying homage (on behalf of a thankful nation) to the unknown soldiers, who laid down their lives for the country, at the memorial at India Gate. There is going to be a slight departure this year, as the Amar Jawan Jyoti -the eternal flame at the memorial – which was constructed after the 1971 Indo- Pak war and inaugurated on 26th January 1972 has been merged with the newer one at the National War Memorial on 21st January 2022.

Coming back to the songs that were posted on 26th January 2009, of the six songs posted one was from a Black and White movie (at the time of its release) “Naya Daur” having Ajit and Dilip Kumar in the song. The last song posted that day was from “Hum Hindustani” which had Sunil Dutt and we can also see some military and para-military force parades in the song. The other four songs were from Manoj Kumar starrers, each song showcasing a different aspect of patriotism. All the posts were short, crisp posts. (I must say that Atulji has become more vocal as the blog grew.)

These are my last two contributions to the blog on the occasion of Indian Republic day.

Song Date of posting
Mera mulk mera desh mera ye watan 26 January 2021
Vande Maatram 26 January 2020

Today we are having a song from Mukul S. Anand’s unfinished, unreleased 1997 movie “Dus”. The film began production in May 1997 and 40% shooting was completed by August. Songs from the movie were already released for public viewing on various music channels of satellite television. Unfortunately Mukul Anand (the director), died during the movie’s shoot on location in Utah, and the movie was shelved. The co-producer Nitin Manmohan released another movie with the same title but unrelated subject in 2005. Mukul Anand’s ‘Dus’ had a cast of Sanjay Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon etc. It had music by Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy and Sandeep Chowta. Lyrics were by Sameer and Deepak Choudhary.

Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, Shankar Mahadevan, Mahalakshmi Iyer, Dominique Cerejo and lyrics are by Sameer. It had been filmed as a stage song and tells the world that India will be “sabse aage” in the years to come. That means one of the leading nations of the world. And we can see there is a lot of good happening in the country and hope to see positive changes in the years to come.

This was the promotional video that was up on Mukul Anand’s official website.
When I see such songs I feel all is not lost and there is still some patriotic fervour among the country’s youth and they express it in their own way.
Happy Republic day once again.
