Four films in his debut year. An accomplishment that is not claimed by many other music directors. The year – 1966. And the films – ‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, ‘Smuggler’, ‘Shera Daku’ and ‘Husn Aur Ishq’. And a sampler of hits from these films – the all time favorite “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam”; the timeless Rafi Sb – Suman Kalyanour duet “Hum Jahaan Hai Wo Maqaam Husn Aur Ishq Hai”; the lilting Mukesh solo “Ae Mere Dil Teri Manzil”; the haunting Lata solo “Intezaar Ka Aalam, Tanhaai Aur Hum”; the racy cabaret number by Lata – “Dil Ka Lagaana Is Duniya Mein”. Songs all made memorable by the lilting tunes mixed with wonderful rhythm and orchestration – the music coming from the mind of Ganesh Prasad Sharma.

Remembering music director Ganesh – he passed away on 28th March, 2000. He was 58.

Ganesh Prasad Sharma, son of the venerable Ram Prasad Sharma, came on to the film scene in early 1960s, working along with the music director duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal. He was the younger brother of Pyaarelal. His work accompanying his elder brother as and arranger and orchestration expert. As the word got around about his talent, and his ability to create attractive rhythm and orchestration arrangements, and by the middle of the decade he started getting assignments as independent music directors. The rush of assignments was such that he had to turn down some offers, right at the beginning of his career.

Over the years, however, despite creating some very wonderful music for films, his career did not really develop much beyond the initial euphoria. Around mid 1970s, after having composed music for almost 25 films, his career simply faded away. The general opinion is that Ganesh could not get away from the shadow of the more illustrious and successful team of Laxmi-Pyaare. Since he continued to work with L-P also, the quality and characteristics of the music of his own independent films never really stood out as distinct. The similarity between the two threads of music did not allow him to create a truly independent identity for himself.

Today, I present a duet song from the 1973 film ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’. The film is remembered for the iconic favorite in Rafi Sb’s voice – “Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondega”. The film is produced by the famous BR Ishara under the banner of Co-Operative Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Madhusudan. The cast of actors is listed as Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi Dhawan, Mehmood (Junior), Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Nadira, Roopesh Kumar, Malika, Chaman Puri, Honey Chhaya, Sapru, Lalita Kumari, Maruti, Kaajal, Rajni, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranveer Raj, Subhash, Master Sheru, Master Ratan, and Master Chiku, with a guest appearance by Asha Sachdev.

The film has five songs listed. Four of these songs are already showcased on our blog. Today we bring on board the fifth and final song of this film. The song is penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The singing voices are of Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar. On screen, the song is performed by Shatrughan Sinha and Rashmi Dhawan. The name Rashmi Dhawan is not very familiar as a heroine. Her name can be seen in just one more film ‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’ from 1971, which is also produced by BR Ishara. She had a side role in that film – the lead pair is listed as Anil Dhawan and Rehana Sultana. So apparently, ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’ is the only film of this actress as the heroine.

The song is picturised as a love song, with the protagonists expressing their feelings of first love for each other, in a beach scenario. Shatrughan has a very trim and fresh look in this film,

The post also rings in the Yippeee status for this film. The earlier four songs of this film have appeared in the blog as follows.

A very interesting thing to note here. The first song of this film, posted as far back as on 31st July, 2008, is the first teen song of our blog. And the film is the first teen film. What I mean is that this film made its debut as the 13th song on the blog, and also that it is the 13th film to appear on the blog. 🙂

And further, those were the days when the blog was still following ‘song-a-day’ convention. So it was also the 13th day for the blog. 🙂

Blog Day :

4270 Post No. : 15500 Movie Count :

4271

Ok, so Atul approached me a few days ago requesting me for a post for a special occasion.

My posts have become very infrequent here – in fact, before my latest post on Sahir’s birth anniversary (8th March), my previous post was on his death anniversary last year (25th October). So a gap of more than 4 months.

But then, like often happens in Test cricket, you wait and wait for a wicket to fall – and when one falls, another quickly follows.

Same has happened here. Following quickly on the heels of the 8th March post, here is another one.

And on such an occasion that I just could not refuse. Let’s just call it the perfect yorker. 🙂

Friends, I am SO honoured here to present Rafisaab’s 3000th song on this blog.

Please allow me now to take a deep breath to let this sink in.

I don’t remember now when we got to Rafisaab’s 1000th and 2000th songs, but as we scale new heights, it feels like we’re entering rarified space.

3000 songs of one artiste on our blog is quite an astonishing achievement. Of course, we’ve already got there with Lata Mangeshkar (she’s going strong with 3500+ right now) but Rafisaab is only the second artiste to hit this milestone here.

Even as I write this post, I feel extremely humbled – and undeserving of this honour. This post is supposed to be a tribute not just to Rafisaab, but to this blog itself.

And there have been so many more here, starting with Atul himself, who deserve to write this. My contributions have dramatically reduced – while there are at least a dozen others (actually many more), who contribute much more, and far more regularly.

But since I am a big Rafisaab fan, I think Atul approached me for this. (In fact there are even bigger Rafisaab fans here – but let’s not start comparing. :-))

Having said all that, let’s talk a bit about Rafisaab here – and our love for him.
I say “our”, because I know I speak for everyone here when I say, we all love Rafisaab here. Only the degree might differ.

Speaking for me personally (and maybe for others too), it has never been about just Rafisaab’s voice.

Sure, for his voice alone, he would easily have had a special place in my heart. That divinity in his voice, his ability to transport me into a different realm altogether, the intonations, the “thehraav” – all of these put him on a level that’s stratospheric for me.

I have spent hours listening to Rafisaab, often intending to listen to just one song. 🙂 I’d listen to one, then get tempted to listen to another, then another, and so on. And before I’d realize it, the minutes would turn into hours. I’ve even spent all night listening to him (ok, that was a few years ago, when I coul stay awake all night). 🙂

It has been said many times before, and by many, but I will say it again – at least in HFM, I haven’t seen any singer with the versatility of Rafisaab. He could deliver every single song in exactly the mood and range required for it. Which is why he could do rock and pop singing just as comfortably as he could do bhajans and ghazals.

Rafisaab could totally get you into any mood the song demanded. He could just mesmerize you into it.

One moment he’s singing the breezy “pukaarta chala hoon main” or the sensuous “aaja re aa zaraa”, the next he’s singing the bhajan “sukh ke sab saathi”. 🙂

One moment, you’re imagining yourself as Shammi Kapoor with “aaja aaja main hoon pyaar tera”, the next you’re Bharat Bhushan lamenting “o duniya ke rakhwaale”. 🙂

They said of Rafisaab that he was an extremely shy and quiet person outside the recording room. You could barely hear his voice.

But once, in the room, recording?

He was a totally different person.

He would be so totally immersed in the song, giving it the very best he could, that you couldn’t believe it was the same person who, outside the room, hardly ever spoke.

In this sense, Rafisaab was a thorough professional. He always sought to give his very best, regardless of who the composer was.

In stature, he was often far higher than most of the composers he sang for. So it is only normal that composers might have hesitated to ask him for a retake, and could have just gone with whatever had been recorded, even if they were not fully satisfied.

But such was Rafisaab’s humility, such was his professionalism, such was his lack of ego, that he would ask the composer if it was ok – and if the composer had any suggestions for improvement, Rafisaab would redo it to the composer’s satisfaction.

That is truly the sign of greatness of an artiste.
And, considering how many successful artistes end up with ego too to match, Rafisaab stands out as an exception.

There are so many other things about Rafisaab that speak of the greatness of him as a human being.

There are other examples of Rafisaab’s nature that are also endearing.

For example, the fact that he sang for composers for a nominal fee, even just a token one rupee, because he knew they could not afford to pay him fees compatible with his stature.

Even in the royalty issue, which resulted in his fallout with Lata, his stand was typical. I don’t want to play judge here, and talk about whether his/Lata’s action was right or wrong, but it was typical of Rafisaab to feel that he had been adequately compensated for the work he had done, and shouldn’t ask for more.

Rafisaab’s generosity went beyond the industry. He provided financial support to people who did not even know who their benefactor was.

All of this, without the slightest arrogance. When someone would praise one of his songs, Rafisaab would just smile and point upwards , as if to say “sab ooparwaale ki kripa hai”.

There’s SO much one could learn from Rafisaab and his values. Ever-polite, ever-professional, ever-helpful, ever-smiling, ever-humble. And ever the family man too, because he always enjoyed spending time with his family.

I’ve written many times about him here – and much of what I’m saying here is repetitive (and possibly boring), but it always gives me great joy to write about Rafisaab, whatever the occasion.

I invariably then write about his character and not just his songs, because his character amazes me just as much as his amazing voice.

So the fact that we have now got 3000 songs of Rafisaab on this blog is a hugely satisfying achievement. My hearty congratulations to Atul, and to everyone else who has been part of this process.

Oh, and in all the discussion about Rafisaab and his 3000th song, I almost forgot.

There’s another milestone to celebrate today – today’s song also happens to be the 15500th song on the blog.

Yes, 15,500.

There was a time, in the early years of the blog, when every century was a major milestone. Then, as the centuries began getting clocked with regularity, the celebration around them decreased. We had entered the chiliad league, so our major milestones became 1000, 2000, 3000 and so on….now past 15000.
The 100s became minor milestones.
While this is understandable to some extent after 155 centuries, I still think every century deserves to be celebrated.

Let us NEVER forget that EVERY song involves a fair amount of effort, and though contributors (*cough*, *cough*) do their bit, every song still requires time & effort from Atul/Sudhirji. And they’ve put this effort 100 times, since 15400. So, I definitely think they deserve appreciation and a round of applause for this.

Now onto the song for today.

You can always trust Atul to unearth songs that have long faded from people’s memory. Or maybe they never got attention when they were released.

The same applies to films too. After all, the Hindi film industry is prolific, with hundreds of films being released every year, and thousands of songs.

As a result, many songs and films never get attention.

This blog has always tried to unearth such songs and films, and to give them their share in the limelight, even if it is several years after their release. After all, every song involves a lot of effort from many artistes. And for a film? The effort is several times more – involving so many more people, in various capacities, each one playing his/her role hoping to see the film succeed at the box-office.

I don’t know the success rate of films, but I’d say there are far more films that don’t click at the box-office, than those which do. Let’s not get into reasons here – I’m no pundit – but I do always like to acknowledge the effort that has gone into making a film anyway.

Why so much of a build-up in this post?

Because the song for today has as much to do with the film as with the song itself.

Prima facie, the song looks like a routine song. It’s a qawwali, with its usual nok-jhok, and, as isn’t uncommon in movies, with disguises. 🙂

Now I’m a sucker for qawwalis, so even though this probably isn’t in the same league as many more illustrious ones, I’m happy to just listen to it, and enjoy it.
Besides, this was 1982 – and by then, qawwalis were slowly on the decline. The times had changed, and naturally films had to reflect the changed times.
So I wouldn’t judge this qawwali, keeping other classics in mind. 🙂

When Atul sent me an e-mail requesting me for a write-up, he explained why he picked this song. It has to do with not just the song, but the film as well.

This is what he said:

The song that I have chosen for the occasion is a special song. It is a rare song. It is composed by an obscure music director called B T Singh. It is the only song of B T Singh with Rafi in his career. HFGK mentions that music was arranged and composed by Uttam Singh. He could be assistant to B T Singh.

The movie is an obscure movie called “Chambal Ke Daaku”(1982). This movie was Produced by R S Sandhu , written and directed by S Azhar for S L Cheema films, Bombay.
The USP of the movie was “Real dacoits pesented first time on screen.”
The movie had real dacoits viz Mohar Singh, Madho Singh, Fateh Singh, Lakhan Singh, Kalyan Singh and hundred of ex dacoits, and actors like Nazneen, Javed Khan, Madhumalini, Sulochana, Malti Joshi, Yasmeen, Birbal, Dushyant, Deep, Ashok, S S Khan, Nirmal Singh, Shamsher Singh, Jeewan Singh, Joginder Singh, Amreek Singh, Joginder Singh Laddhar, Mahendra Singh, Chandrakala, Ramesh Deo, Sohel Khan, Joga Singh, Sayyad Khan, Praveen Lakhad, Gajendra Gadge, Rajkumar, Baw Brar, Shabbir Khan, Guest apppearances by Padma Khanna, Hina Kausar, Mahendra, Raza Murad etc.”

Wow!
So now we have a film here where real-life dacoits just decided to act in a film. Maybe there are other examples too (what about “Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai”)?

In any case, it is a rather fascinating scenario. And of course, when I learnt about this, my mind began working overtime, imagining all sorts of things.

– Were they active dacoits, wanted by the police? If so, how did they get to act? Or had they served their sentence, and reformed? In which case, they shouldn’t be judged on their past, of course.
– How much were they paid?
– Was it maybe just a smart move for the producer to co-opt real-life dacoits so that not only does he have a USP, but he also has access to their expertise, and could film in locations he wouldn’t otherwise dare to?
– How did co-stars, and the rest of the crew feel? Imagine having chai with a real-life dacoit. You’d probably not want to upset him, or even crack a joke about him, for fear of him taking offence at it
– In the shooting scenes, was anyone worried that the dacoits might just get excited and take it all too literally?

Such thoughts, and more, came to my mind, because this was reel life and real life potentially getting mixed up. The key word here is “potentially”. 🙂

Chambal itself was a common film theme in those days – especially in the 70s and early 80s. Films mirror real-life events, and dacoity used to be in the news off and on in those days. There were plenty of dacoit films made in that time, the most famous being Sholay, of course. 🙂

I remember VP Singh, CM of UP (1980-82) came down hard on dacoity in his time, and even got a lot of praise for it. But soon after, there was a major dacoity, as if to spite him – and he offered to resign as CM.

I myself used to travel a lot by train from Orissa to Delhi in the early 80s, and go through Gwalior-Morena (I think Dholpur in Rajasthan also), which I think is the Chambal area. The landscape would be “interesting”, and would trigger my imagination. 🙂

Anyway, enough of digression.

Back to the song, it is sung by Rafisaab (of course), together with Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey. Rafisaab passed away in 1980, so it’s possible this is one of his last few songs – unless the film took a while to get released.

I must admit I couldn’t recognise many faces – but Ramesh Deo is, of course, unmistakeable.

Hope you enjoy the song, and imagine yourself singing it with real-life dacoits in Chambal Valley. 🙂

And once again, congratulations to the blog for clocking Rafisaab’s 3000th, and the blog’s 15500th.

Blog Day: 4270 Post No.: 15499

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Mr Chakram”(1956) was produced by Sant Singh-Paachhi and directed by S P Bakshi for P S Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shyama, Ranjan, Roopmaala, Sundar, Om Prakash, Chandrashekhar, Randhrre, Kumkum, Ramesh Thakur, Abbaas, Tripathi, Ramlal, Kathhana, Mohan etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Nakshab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The movie had six Asha Bhonsle solo and one Lata Mangeshkar solos, and one Rafi solo. I have a feeeling that all female solos were picturised on Shyama but I cannnot be sure as only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Ek gham ka din bhi aaya (Mr Chakram)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-J Nakshab, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

ae chaand chaandni mein duniya basaaney waale
duniya basaaney waale
ae chaand chaandni mein duniya basaaney waale
duniya basaaney waale
lut’te hain besahaare
lut’te hain besaahare
taaron ki roshni mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

afsaane gham ke laakhon dhhaalenge hosh waale
dhhaalenge(?) hosh waale
afsaane gham ke laakhon dhhaalenge hosh waale
dhhaalenge(?) hosh waale
munh se nikal gayi hai
munh se nikal gayi hai
ek baat bekhudi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi me
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

itna nahin ke dil ki dhaaras bandhaaye koi
dhaaras bandhaaye koi
itna nahin ke dil ki dhaaras bandhaaye koi
dhaaras bandhaaye koi
jhhoothhi tasalliyaan bhi
jhoothhi tasalliyaan bhi
kaafi hain bekasi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

Here is the fourth and final song from “Choron Ka Chor”(1970). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

This song too is a rare song.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a club dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Only the audio of this song is available. Going by the sonds of it, the song appears an archtypical “chhaayaageet” genre of song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Ham apne gham ko saja kar bahaar kar lenge(Madan Manjari)(1961) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

hum apne gham ko saja kar bahaar kar lenge ae
hum apne gham ko saja kar bahaar kar lenge ae
tere khayaalon ko thhoda sa pyaar kar lenge ae
hum apne gham ko

kabhi to aayega tu mere dil ki raahon par
kabhi to aayega tu mere dil ki raahon par
tamaam umr tera intejaar kar lenge ae
tere khayaalon ko thhoda sa pyaar kar lenge ae
hum apne gham ko

tadap tadap ke kahin ro ke raat kaatenge ae
tadap tadap ke kahin ro ke raat kaatenge ae
haseen chaand ko hum raazdaar kar lenge ae
tere khayaalon ko thhoda sa pyaar kar lenge ae
hum apne gham ko saja kar bahaar kar lenge ae
hum apne gham ko

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 8
——————————————————————————
I am fond of saying that this blog was quite prolific in the past and presently we are crawling as a slow rate in comparison. But that was not the case throughout. There was a phase in the blog in the past when the posts in this blog has almost dried up. That was from december 2009 till february 2010. There were as many as 34 DOT days in the blog out of 90 days during these three months. Only 112 posts were published in the blog during these three months. Thus the blog those days was not even a song a day blog. It had even become no song in a day blog on 33 % days.

The reason was that I had found myself transferred from my earlier place of posting viz Jabalpur in the month of December 2009. It was an inter zonal transfer in Railways parlance. I was transferred from WCR zone to SECR Zone, whose HQ was at BIlaspur, Chhattisgarh. I reported at Bilaspur in the first week of december 2009. I stayed there for a few days before it was decided that I would be posted at Nagpur.

It took me a while before I got a quarter allotted to me at Nagpur in February 2010. I then went to Jabalpur, vacated my quarter there and brought the luggage to Nagpur. It was first week of March 2010 before I could get settled in Nagpur.

During these three months from December 2009 to February 2010, it was difficult to find time for blogging. Still, I thried to keep the blog going. The laptop that I had was my constant companion and I had a dongle for internet connectivity, but posting on a regular basis when I was literally living out of suitcase was a tough challenge.

All these dot days means that there are not too many occasions today (ten year later) when we can find songs for ten year challenge. There are days that were DOT days, so there is no question of being able to discuss a ten year challenge song those days. On the few days when some songs were discussed, many of these songs have already been YIPPEED by now.

Take the example of blog activity on this day ten years back (viz on 26 february 2010). Three songs were posted on the blog on that day :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kitne raanjhe tujhe dekhkar bairaagi ban gaye Ahsaas-1979 04 of 06 songs posted
Aur kuchh der thahar aur kuchh der na jaa Aakhri Khat-1966 All Songs posted
Hame haal e dil tumse kahna hai Chaubees Ghante-1958 05 of 08 songs posted

“Chaubees Ghante”(1958) had made its debut on that day ten years ago. The writeup of this article was quite brief and sketchy, and contained little details about the movie. It shows that I did not have time to do research on this song. Moreover, ten years ago I was far less knowledgeable about HFM than today. I did not even have access to HFGK those days.

Now I know that this movie was directed by Dwarka Khosla for Zar Productions, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Maruti, Shammi, Nishi, Samson, Rajan Kapoor, K N Singh etc in it.

Ten years later, this movie had debuted in the blog when I was trying to find my feet at Nagpur, Maharashtra. Today (26 February 2010), exactly ten years later, I find myself at Gorakhpur, UP (via Bilaspur, Chattisgarh and Izatnagar, Bareilly, UP). By now five songs from the movie have been covered. Three songs were covered when I was at Nagpur. One song each was covered at Bilaspur and Izatnagar respectively.

Here is the sixth song from “Chaubees Ghante”(1958) appearing in the blog when I am based at Gorakhpur, UP. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

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

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Aaj ka salaam lo kal ka waada pakka(Chaubees Ghante)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Bipin Baabul

Lyrics 9Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Hans ke mera naam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Doodloo loo oo
Didlee lee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo oo
Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka aa

Haseenon ki nighaah se
Dil rakho sambhaal ke
Haseenon ki nighaah se
Dil rakho sambhaal ke
Udaa na le tumhaara dil
Nigaah e naaz daal ke ae
Pyaar ka payaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Doodloo loo oo oo
Didlee lee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo

Khushi ke ek jaam mein
Dubo de zindagi ke gham
Khushi ke ek jaam mein
Dubo de zindagi ke gham
Ke dukh bahot hai zindagi mein
Sukh magar bahot hai kam
Sabr se jo naam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
Doodloo loo oo oo
Didlee lee ee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo

Sambhal sambhal ke chal zaraa
Kadam kadam pe jaal hai
Sambhal sambhal ke chal zaraa
Kadam kadam pe jaal hai
Samajh ke paansa phenk le
Ye zindagi ki chaal hai
Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
hans ke mera naam lo
kal ka waada pakka
kal ka waada pakka
kal ka waada pakka
Doodloo loo oo oo oo
Didlee lee ee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo oo
