This post is the 13600th post, 600th song of Sahir Ludhianvi and 1100th post of Sudhir Jee in the blog.

One more song that I can’t believe has not yet been included in the annals of our blog. Such a melodious, lilting and fast paced lovable song. It used to be aired on the radio quite regularly, and was one of the listening favorites. The vintage is 1964, and so quite well still retained in the memory. As I started to search for a Sahir song for this post today, I was not quite satisfied with some of the ones that showed up as possible candidates. You see, as we progress and post more songs, and the artist counts starts to close in to their total no. of songs, then in all likelihood, the better ones, the favorite ones are mostly accounted for on the blog. So if one is looking for a favorite song as a representative work of an artist, it becomes quite an effort to locate one.

Ah yes, all this is being said because I have been trying to locate a good, attractive favorite song penned by Sahir Sb, for this celebration post today. So yes, this post is celebrating two major milestones. We arrive at the 13,600th station in this musical journey. In the same stroke, we are also celebrating a score of 600 songs posted, that have come from the pen of Sahir Ludhianvi. Congratulations to one and all members of this musical bandwagon, and all readers and friends on this blog. The going has been somewhat slow during the recent few weeks, but we continue to trek along these musical paths. The going is still strong – we still just at 35 to 40% of the known songs, considering the period from 1931 to 1980 (as covered in the first five volumes of the HFGK).

However, the same cannot be said of the artists. As we continue to progress and as we start getting near to the total number of songs of an artist, it then becomes somewhat of an effort, to search out a suitable, likeable song from the remaining lot. I have been working through the lists of remaining songs of Sahir Sb much of the early part of today. I picked out a few candidate songs, from across the years his career spans. With an excellent poet like him, I notice that majority, and I mean majority, of the songs written by him are accounted for. I run through the Geet Kosh, and the film name will tell me, not even try looking into the list, because this film is most certainly already ‘Yippeee’d’. Oh yes, I do pick up some, as I said earlier, but reaching 1964, checking out this film ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’, I was surprised that this film is not yet part of the Yippeee list on the blog. Scanning the list of songs, it is almost goose bumps running down my back, as I see this song listed. Quick check on the blog and I find this song is not yet present on the blog. I have made this faux pas a few times in the past, so I quickly send an email to Atul ji, to get a confirmation. I start to prepare the post in anticipation, as I wait for his response. The confirmation email from him a little while later is quite a relief, as you may understand. 🙂

The story of Sahir is a journey in bittersweet loneliness. His own life, his experiences and his personal emotions are quite reflected in the songs and his poetry. A romantic at heart, he was once expelled from his college (in Lahore) by the principal, who saw him sitting in the college lawns with a lady student. That same college today has an auditorium named after him. A childhood that begins with bitter family experiences – a strict and abusive father, and a mother who left the household on that account. He was close to his mother, who ensured that his education continued, even though she was not part of the family, strictly speaking. His poetry budded and took shape within him, and he published his first collection while still at college. The collection is titled ‘Talkhiyaan’ (तल्खियाँ). Literally, it means ‘bitternesses’. . .

The saga of the mutual love and attraction between Sahir and Amrita Pritam, the famous Punjabi poetess and author, is well known. It is not really clear what kept them apart. Was it that Amrita was already a married woman when they met? Was is familial or community apprehensions? We would not know. Theirs was an association of silence, and that is how it has remained – a mystery in silence. At one place, Amrita has written –

“our meetings and being together, were passages of silence. . . for me, it seemed as if the loneliness and silences of my soul took a human shape and came to sit besides me. . . he would be smoking all the time, and when he left, what remained behind was an ashtray full of half smoked cigarettes. . . I would keep them as treasures, and once in a while, would smoke them. . . holding that cigarette in my hand was like him holding my hand. . .”

There is one reference one finds to this personal affair. It is said that Sahir once said to his mother that the only one that could have been her ’bahu’ was Amrita.

Cigarettes and drink became his life, and he passed away quite early – just 57. Lines from two songs simply sum up his passage from the world of living. One – “Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhaata Chala Gaya”; I refer to the line “Har Fikr Ko Dhuen Mein Udaata Chala Gaya”. And the second – “Mehfil Se Utth Jaane Waalo”; I refer to the line “Mere Saathi. . . Mere Saathi. . . Mere Saathi Khaali Jaam”. A romantic – lived as one, passed away as one.

Today’s song is a wonderful duet between Lata ji and Asha ji. ‘Dooj’ is the second day in the waxing cycle of the moon. It is on this day that the first crescent of the moon really becomes visible. This view of the moon is considered to be the most auspicious. The Muslims celebrate their Id when this crescent moon is sighted. And in scriptures and books of Hinduism, this sighting finds many mentions, as an auspicious occasion. There is couplet (author unknown) which goes like,

avasar kaudi  jo chuke,  bahuri  diye ka  lakh
duij na chanda dekhiye, udai kaha bhari pakh

That a timely helping hand of just one ‘kaudi’ is worth much more than lakhs given when not needed; so is the sighting of the moon on ‘dooj’; seeing it that day is worth seeing it in all its phases for the rest of the fortnight.

The crescent moon and the star – which is an occasional sighting of the moon and the planet Venus in conjunction, has been considered as the most beautiful sights. It is the conjunction of the mind (मन) and beauty – moon represents the मन and the Venus represents beauty. Poets and authors have written that this sight is more beautiful than ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’, which is the full moon.

Enjoy this lovely song. It depicts the age old tradition of unmarried girls praying to and paying their respects to this sighting of the moon, asking for the blessing of a beautiful loving husband. On screen, the song is performed as a group dance. B Saroja Devi is the lead dancer, accompanied by Madhumati and other ladies. They are teasing Saroja Devi to pray to the moon, and she is responding by saying that the one who may love her should come seeking her. And her friends respond by saying that her ‘bindiya’ and her ‘paayal’ are giving a different message. A lovely tete-a-tete.

Music is vintage Roshan, what a lovely and endearing melody this one is.

The song is picturised as a car song on Shakila and Shammi Kapoor. Seeing that it is a Rafi song picturised on Shammi Kapoor, this song is a rather unknown song. Personally I had not heard this song before.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

If it is a post by me then it has to be someone’s’ birthday.

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997). I just thought that it will be a lovely departure from routine to showcase the versatility of the forever young-at-heart Asha.

I am not going to get into her life history in this post, I will just say I am super excited that I am going to be seeing her in person, live in the show which goes by the name Rendezvous with Asha Bhonsle, which I assume will be as exhilarating an experience as the Rendezvous with Hema Malini has been last year. The minute I got the invite for this I had posted it on our WhatsApp group to find out if any Atulite will be interested and we could have gone as a gang. Our dear Rajaji said that much as he would like to be therehe cannot make it. But I am glad that I will have Gajendraji and his wife as company. By the time we had decided on the number of tickets to be purchased the stock of tickets with the organisers were exhausted but Gajendraji was an angel to book the tickets.

So, coming back to the song which I had in mind for the occasion is from a music album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (the only non-film cassette in my collection) which came out when the non-film music industry was booming with albums of people like Hariharan with Leslie Lewis as ‘Colonial Cousins’, Alisha Chinai, Suneeta Rao etc. This was the period when MTV and Channel V exploded on television in the name of satellite television. Songs of this genre were called Indie pop. The album had eight songs all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Leslie Lewis was the music director.  Asha Bhonsle was in her sixties and Majrooh in late seventies but the songs were everything that a young at heart could ask for. It had love songs in all the moods that accompany the emotion- roothna-manana; ikraar- inkaar aur takraar; etc.

For people who are not introduced to Leslie Lewis he is the son of prolific film choreographer Devaraj Peter Lewis – going by the name PL Raj in Bollywood.

Lyrics

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

sanam tumko jis din se dekha hum ne
deewaana dil kaboo mein nahin
bada pyaara ye bhi itefaaq dekho
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin pyaare
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

agar tum bhi wo chaaho jo main chaahun
to gul khil jaaye iqraar ka
dilon ko milne de kuchh na bolen hum
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka jaani
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

thehro padi hai raat yeh saari
kaahe ki jaldi jaane mann
daale hue yeh reshmi bahen
yun hi lipte raho tum gulbadan
taqdeer se yeh mil gaya mauqa
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

सनम तुमको जिस दिन से देखा हमने
दीवाना दिल काबू में नहीं
बड़ा प्यारा ये भी इत्तेफाक़ देखो
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं प्यारे
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

अगर तुम भी वो चाहो जो मैं चाहूँ
तो गुल खिल जाये इक़रार का
दिलों को मिलने दें कुछ ना बोलें हम
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का जानी
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

ठहरो पड़ी है ये रात सारी
काहे की जल्दी जाने मन
डाले हुये ये रेशमी बाहें
यूं ही लिपटे रहो तुम गुलबदन
तक़दीर से ये मिल गया मौका
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

“Bade Ghar Ki Bahu” (1960) was produced by J S Puri and directed by Kundan Kumar for Life and art, Bombay . The movie had Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kuldip Kaur, Nagpal, Shammi, Niranjan Sharma, Neeru, Bhagwan Sinha, Chanda Bai, Sheela Vaz etc in it.

The movie, also known as “Bhabhi”, had seven songs in it.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Bade Ghar Ki Bahu” (1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Tanvir Naqvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only audio of this song is available, but it is certain that this song was picturised on Geeta Bali seeing that Asha Bhonsle was the only female playback singer of this movie and she had sung five songs which could only be for the leading lady of the movie, viz. Geeta Bali in this case.

It is a nice melancholic song to listen to.


Song-Meri khata bata de phir chaahe jo saza de (Bade Ghar ki Bahu)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Tanvir Naqvi, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

hawa mein tinka tinka hoke bikhra aashiyaan mera
mere hi saamne barbaad hota hai jahaan mera

meri khata bata de
phir chaahe jo saza de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de
meri khata bata de
phir chaahe jo saza de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de

mujh ko na de sahaara aa
tujh ko teri kasam hai
tujh ko teri kasam hai
mujh ko na de sahaara aa
tujh ko teri kasam hai
tujh ko teri kasam hai
jis dil mein tera gham hai
us dil ko aasra de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de
meri khata bata de
phir chaahe jo saza de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de

maine to apni duniyaa aa
kar di tere hawaale
kar di tere hawaale
maine to apni duniyaa
kar di tere hawaale
kar di tere hawchala hai pyaar ka aale
barbaad karne waale
duniyan meri basa de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de
meri khata bata de
phir chaahe jo saza de ae
phir chaahe jo saza de
