This article is the 16900th post in the blog on its 5000th day.

Blog Day :

5000 Post No. : 16900

Today (27 March 2022) is one of those days that arrives regularly in the blog. It is the century post day. Moreover, it is an even more special day for the blog. Today is the 5000th day of the blog !

The fact that today is the 5000th day of the blog was known for quite some time. The idea that this day should coincide with the century post germinated a few days ago, even though it meant that we needed to go at a slower rate than even the already slow rate for the blog.

Sudhir Jee, who floated this idea was under the impression till the last moment that today we were on to 17000th post. It was only at the last moment that he realised that we were onto just the 16900th post. 🙂

Sudhir Jee had identified a special post for the occasion of 17000th post and so that song had to be held back.

We did not have any backup song for the occasion.

Most of our century posts get posted on week days when the blog gets more visits. Today is perhaps the first time in many years when the century post was getting covered on a Sunday. The previous such occasion that I can think of was 20 July 2014, which was a Sunday too and that was the day when the 10000th post was covered on the blog. That day which saw 8 articles being posted was a memorable day for the blog, as the regulars of the blog remember even to this day.

Today is Sunday. A few years ago, I had discovered a rare and remarkable old song of 1940s that celebrated Sunday. I vaguely remembered that I had noted it down and I had even downloaded that song. That song would have been a perfect century song for today. But I could not locate that song, despite searching hard in my portable hard disks and elsewhere. It could well have been hiding in some laptop that I am no longer using.

I informed Sudhir Jee about this song and he too searched for it. But that song could not be located.

During my searches, I came across some other rare songs and I considered using one of them, in case our “Sunday” song could not be located. So here is that song.

This song, quite an interesting and rare song, is from ‘Phulwaari’ (1946).

‘Phulwaari’ (1946) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. The movie had Motilal, Khursheed, Madhubala, Ramayan Tiwari etc in it. This obscure movie had 9 obscure songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

This song, third from the movie and 16900th song in the blog is a children’s song. It is sung by Baby Anu and chorus. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song is a take on Chanda Mama from her point of view. It is quite a fun song, quite an interesting song indeed. The song , like its movie ended up becoming obscure.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

I have no idea who this singer Baby Anu was. She may have been a small child while recording this song, but today she would be in her 70s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on her. She makes her debut as a playback singer in the blog.

16900 songs on the 5000th day for the blog ! It has been quite a marathon run for this musical blog where songs have been covered at a rate of 3.4 songs everyday. These figures demonstrate the fact that if one can be consistent and disciplined that it is possible to achieve such high figures, even if our daily rate of posts may be seemingly low.

The blog now has 16900 songs from nearly 4600 movies, and around 1300 of these movies have already been Yippeee’d. These figures may not appear too daunting to the uninitiated, but these figures are big figures. We realize their size only when we try to list them or try to go through the list, or try to take a print out.

The next century mark is the big mark of 17000th song. Who thought, 14 years ago during 2008, that this blog would still be around in 2022 and people here would talk of 17000 songs in it. We are here and that target is just 100 songs away from us.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. And as always, let us hope that this musical bandwagon keeps rolling on and on and we keep discovering many musical gems in our journey.

Congratulations Atulji on going non-stop for 5000 days. And touching 16900 is the stepping stone for 17000. I know the day is not far for 17000

Atul ji,

Congratulations on passing the 5000th day of this Blog with a Century !
Indeed, as you said, these figures of 5000 and 16900 may seem not so big for a casual person, but we know what it took to reach this stage.

Hard work alone was not enough, but to carry a group of music lovers who would not just listen songs and enjoy, but contribute in various ways, equally needed a leadership skill.

You have done it and I am sure you will take the group on many more occasions to celebrate different achievements.

I wish you all the best.

Atul Ji & all readers of this blog,
Catching up with unread posts.
Congratulations on completing 5000 days of this lovely blog , which also incidentally celebrates another century run of posts. The song is sweet in the mold of Ranu Makherjee’s ‘Nani teri mor….:
