Blog Day :

4571 Post No. : 16175

I was not around when India got freedom from British Raj. When I was growing up, we were told that India won her freedom through non violent movement. Some people like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose etc found passing mention who were not part of non violent movement.

I was around when Bangladesh won her freedom from Pakistan in 1971. I was surprised to know what Bangladeshis are taught about their freedom. They are taught that Mukti bahini defeated Pakistani army and secured freedom for Bangladesh from Pakistan ! There is no mention of the fact that there was a full fledged war between India and Pakistan and that Pakistanis army, with 93000 Pakistani soldiers, surrendered before Indian army in Dhaka, leading to the independence of Bangladesh. There is a famous surrender photograph to prove it.

As for Pakistan, they are taught in their text books that Pakistan had defeated India in 1971 war but the scheming Indians in collusion with the entire world got Bangladesh to separate from Pakistan. There is no mention of the fact in Pakistani history textbooks that Pakistani army massacred 3 million East Pakistanis and raped 5 lakh East Pakistani women in what was a human right abuse second only to what was perperated by Nazis on jews during second world war, which ultimately led to the liberation of Bangladesh.

Who knows, we Indians too may have been been disinformed about our freedom struggle the way Bangladeshis are disinformed about their freedom from Pakistan ! Today, in the era of internet we have access to information over and above what we were taught in India in our history textbooks. And the facts that emerge from these independent sources differ from what we have been told in India.

When the second world war ended, Britain had paid a heavy price for their war efforts. Britain, which was the largest economy in the world a few decades ago, found their economy in a bad shape. So much so that they had to take loan from USA (the new superpower) to shore up their economy. Britain had looted the resources of their colonies and they could no longer afford to hold on to their colonies as holding on to them had become prohibitively expensive for them.

Here is the lowdown about British economy in the aftermath of world war 2:-

Labour rejoiced at its political triumph, the first independent parliamentary majority in the party’s history, but it faced grave problems. The war had stripped Britain of virtually all its foreign financial resources, and the country had built up “sterling credits”—debts owed to other countries that would have to be paid in foreign currencies—amounting to several billion pounds. Moreover, the economy was in disarray. Some industries, such as aircraft manufacture, were far larger than was now needed, while others, such as railways and coal mines, were desperately short of new equipment and in bad repair. With nothing to export, Britain had no way to pay for imports or even for food. To make matters worse, within a few weeks of the surrender of Japan, on September 2, 1945, U.S. President Harry S. Truman, as he was required to do by law, ended lend-lease, upon which Britain had depended for its necessities as well as its arms. John Maynard Keynes, as his last service to Great Britain, had to negotiate a $3.75 billion loan from the United States and a smaller one from Canada. In international terms, Britain was bankrupt.

Also this:

Withdrawal from the empire
——————————
Britain, not entirely by coincidence, was also beginning its withdrawal from the empire. Most insistent in its demand for self-government was India. The Indian independence movement had come of age during World War I and had gained momentum with the Massacre of Amritsar of 1919. The All-India Congress Party, headed by Mohandas K. Gandhi, evoked sympathy throughout the world with its policy of nonviolent resistance, forcing Baldwin’s government in the late 1920s to seek compromise. The eventual solution, embodied in the Government of India Act of 1935, provided responsible government for the Indian provinces, the Indianization of the civil service, and an Indian parliament, but it made clear that the Westminster Parliament would continue to legislate for the subcontinent. The act pleased no one, neither the Indians, the Labour Party, which considered it a weak compromise, nor a substantial section of the Conservative Party headed by Churchill, which thought it went too far. Agitation in India continued.

Further British compromise became inevitable when the Japanese in the spring of 1942 swept through Burma to the eastern borders of India while also organizing in Singapore a large Indian National Army and issuing appeals to Asian nationalism. During the war, Churchill reluctantly offered increasing installments of independence amounting to dominion status in return for all-out Indian support for the conflict. These offers were rejected by both the Muslim minority and the Hindu majority.

The election of a Labour government at the end of World War II coincided with the rise of sectarian strife within India. The new administration determined with unduly urgent haste that Britain would have to leave India. This decision was announced on June 3, 1947, and British administration in India ended 10 weeks later, on August 15. Burma (now Myanmar) and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) received independence by early 1948. Britain, in effect, had no choice but to withdraw from colonial territories it no longer had the military and economic power to control.

The same circumstances that dictated the withdrawal from India required, at almost the same time, the termination of the mandate in Trans-Jordan, the evacuation of all of Egypt except the Suez Canal territory, and in 1948 the withdrawal from Palestine, which coincided with the proclamation of the State of Israel. It has been argued that the orderly and dignified ending of the British Empire, beginning in the 1940s and stretching into the 1960s, was Britain’s greatest international achievement. However, like the notion of national unity during World War II, this interpretation can also be seen largely as a myth produced by politicians and the press at the time and perpetuated since. The ending of empire was calculated upon the basis of Britain’s interests rather than those of its colonies. National interest was framed in terms of the postwar situation—that is, of an economically exhausted, dependent Britain, now increasingly caught up in the international politics of the Cold War. What later became known as “decolonization” was very often shortsighted, self-interested, and not infrequently bloody, as was especially the case in Malaysia (where the politics of anticommunism played a central role) and in Kenya.

So, as can be seen from the accounts of British historians, Britain was in no position to hold on to its colonies and they left these colonies as soon as they could. It is not just India, but also other colonies that got liberated one after other in the wake of world war 2. The circumstances that led to British haste was only partially to do with Mahatma Gandhi led movement. British historians mention Indian National Army also as a reason, something which Indian historians sought to push under the carpet.

The report also mentions rise of sectarian strifes within India. So those indulging in sectarian strifes were certainly not following non violence as preached by Gandhiji, but they too were contributing to British unease. It also shows that British rules found themselved unable to prevent these sectarian violences.

It would appear to me that British rulers did not fear non violent protest as much as they feared violence. It is the violence that began frequent in the second half of 1940s that unnerved the British. British ruled India through a machinery manned by Indians.

The INA trials, the stories of Subhas Chandra Bose (“Netaji”), as well as the stories of INA’s fight during the Siege of Imphal and in Burma were seeping into the glaring public-eye at the time. These, received through the wireless sets and the media, fed discontent and ultimately inspired rebellion in the ranks of navy.

A rebellion of Royal Indian air force, followed by a full fledged mutiny of Royal Indian Navy did take place in 1946. From the initial flashpoint in Bombay on 18 february 1946, the revolt spread and found support throughout British India, from Karachi to Calcutta, and ultimately came to involve over 20,000 sailors in 78 ships and shore establishments.

The mutiny was suppressed by British troops and Royal Navy warships. Total casualties were 8 dead and 33 wounded.

The rebelling Indian Naval personnel began calling themselves the “Indian National Navy” and offered left-handed salutes to British officers. At some places, NCOs in the British Indian Army ignored and defied orders from British superiors. In Madras and Poona (now Pune), the British garrisons had to face some unrest within the ranks of the Indian Army. Widespread rioting took place from Karachi to Calcutta. Notably, the revolting ships hoisted three flags tied together – those of the Congress, Muslim League, and the Red Flag of the Communist Party of India (CPI), signifying the unity and downplaying of communal issues among the mutineers.

The revolt was called off following a meeting between the President of the Naval Central Strike Committee (NCSC), M. S. Khan, and Vallab Bhai Patel of the Congress, who had been sent to Bombay to settle the crisis. Patel issued a statement calling on the strikers to end their action, which was later echoed by a statement issued in Calcutta by Mohammed Ali Jinnah on behalf of the Muslim League. Under these considerable pressures, the strikers gave way. Arrests were then made, followed by courts martial and the dismissal of 476 sailors from the Royal Indian Navy. None of those dismissed were reinstated into either the Indian or Pakistani navies after independence.

As can be guessed, such s revolt by a wing of armed forces is a serious matter and it must have unnerved the British. And just look at the name that these mutineers chose for themselves- India National Navy. Clearly inspired from the name “Indian National Army” that Subhash Chandra Bose had given to his army. So Subhash Chandra Bose was influencing Indian armed forces in a manner that was not to the liking of British government.

The weekly intelligence summary issued on 25 March 1946 admitted that the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force units were no longer trustworthy, and, for the Army, “only day to day estimates of steadiness could be made”. The situation has thus been deemed the “Point of No Return.”

In 1967 during a seminar discussion marking the 20th anniversary of Independence; it was revealed by the British High Commissioner of the time John Freeman (1965-1968), that the mutiny of 1946 had raised the fear of another large scale mutiny along the lines of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, from the 2.5 million Indian soldiers who had participated in the Second World War. The mutiny had accordingly been a large contributing factor to the British deciding to leave India. “The British were petrified of a repeat of the 1857 Mutiny, since this time they feared they would be slaughtered to the last man”.

There it is. The main reason why British left India was not non violent movement of independence, but fear of rebellion like in 1857, and this time fear of rebellion by armed forces, and not just some small time rulers (as in 1857). This fact was admitted by no less than a person than the British High Commissioner to India. And this state of affairs was caused by Subhash Chandra Bose. It was this kind of influence that Subhash Chandra Bose had on collective psyche of British rulers. It is a fact that has been carefully kept hidden by Indian historians. In fact the naval mutiny was not even known to most Indians. It has become known only in later decades when gathering information became easier thanks to internet.

This view that Mahatma Gandhi’s new found weapon of non violence defeated British and that Subhash Chandra Bose was just a misguided partiot who failed to see the merits of non violence was not exactly subscribed to by British rulers. For that matter it was not even subscribed to by large sections of people in India itself, viz those who were demanding separate Pakistan through violent means such as direct action day (16 august 1946) which saw an estimated 4000 people dead in bloody violence in one day. This violence sparked off further religious riots in the surrounding regions of Noakhali, Bihar, United Provinces (modern Uttar Pradesh), Punjab, and the North Western Frontier Province. These events sowed the seeds for the eventual Partition of India.

In summary, Subhash Chandra Bose’s contribution to Indian independence is far greater than what he is given credit for. His contribution has been conveniently pushed under the carpet. Hopefully, in future, his contribution will be realised and appreciated. He was not a misguided patriot, he was a great visionary, who had the drive and energy to implement his vision. He raised Indian National Army. His army got defeated no doubt, but it was defeated by fellow Indians fighting for British army. It was the age old problem of India, where Indians, at the behest of foreign powers, would act against Indian interests. No doubt INA got defeated and a few of their personnel were subjected to trial, but these trials galvanised Indian public, including sections of Indian armed forces. That way, Subhash Chandra Bose (by that time already dead) turned the tables on the British rulers. Even though his army was defeated, his army caught the imagination of Indians and drew widespread public support for themselves during INA trials. British rulers were more afraid of the prospect of armed forces rebellion, which could have happened at any time according to the assessment of British rulers. So that was a major reason why they left India in a hurry.

We have been discussing songs from “Bose-A Forgotten Hero”(2004) on 23 January of various years. So far we have covered three songs from the movie on 23rd January of three different years as shown below:-

The routine of these posts is always the same, Avinash Scrapala, our inhouse hardcore patriot who keeps track of the anniversaries of various freedom fighters, sends me the lyrics, with request for my writeup. 🙂 He knows that I cannot help but summon up my increasingly dwindling creative juices to come up with some heartfelt tribute on the occasion.

So here it is, yet another song from “Bose The Forgotten Hero”(2004) on the occasion of the 125th birth anniversary (DoB 23 January 1897) of Subhash Chandra Bose.

The song is sung and composed by A R Rahman. Some chorus is also there but their words are not clear. Lyrics are by Jawed Akhtar.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks in the lyrics.

Hullo Atuldom

4th January is the 90th birth anniversary of the on-screen mother of Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra, and a few heroines too. She mostly played mother to heroes, at least that is what my personal experience was, fed as I was on movies of the ’70s and ’80s.

But that is not how she began her career. Our in-house encyclopedia whom I prefer calling Guruji has written a post and also in a few of his comments to other posts on the blog that she has played comic characters and stunt roles too in addition to playing Goddesses in mythologicals after having made her debut as heroine in movies of the late ’40s and continuing to play central characters through the ’50s and early ’60s. In post of his Atulji has commented about a 44 year old Nirupa Roy (who this post is dedicated to) playing mother to a 38 year old Shashi Kapoor and 34 year old Amitabh Bachchan who incidentally played the older son.

“Laadla” (1966) had seven songs of which the blog has four songs. One of the songs posted thus far is a two part song and shows Nirupa Roy sing a lullaby to a baby in a pram who grows up to be Sudhir Kumar (of ‘Dosti’ fame). Today’s song show her on a train journey and making her son comfortable on the berth of the compartment. This must have been the first class coach of yore which used to have a lot of space and private washroom etc.; this I am deducing from all the train scenes of old time movies that I have grown up seeing. Personally I have never experienced that luxury, but that is not the matter of this post.

Today’s song has Lata Mangeshkar giving playback to Nirupa’s atma ki awaaz (voice of conscience) and the charming actress shows her distress so well. Heard this song for the first time as I wrote it out for the post and like what Rajinder Krishan has written and Laxmi-Pyare have composed.


Song-Kaun tujhko maa kahega (Laadla)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisiki maa nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin

phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai ae ae
phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai
teri hasti tera darza
teri hasti tera darza
toh fakat maali ka hai
jhhooth ko sach kar dikhaana
iss kadar aasaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin

soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
tu kisi ke aansuon se
tu kisi ke aansuon se
apna munh dhoti hai kyun
jo khushi chheene kisi ki
woh koi insaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin
maa nahin

“Kundan”(1955) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Om Prakash, Baby Naaz, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Jeevan, Sadat Ali, Kumkum etc in it.

The movie was based on Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Miserables” which was adapted for this Hindi movie by Pt Sudarshan.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Kundan”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

The song is picturised as a background song as Sohrab Modi is shown going far away from the home of Murad (as far as I can tell from the picturisation). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke (Kundan)(1955) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

tu kab tak bhala aa aa aa
tu kab tak bhala haath malta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
mita de gareebi ko balwaan ban ke
balwaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 105# In Remembrance – Kishore Kumar #
—————————————- ——————————————-

Today 13th October’2020 is the thirty-third ‘Remembrance Day’ of the legendary singer Kishore Kumar.
It was on 13th October’1987 that he left this world at the age of fifty-eight only (04.08.1929-13.10.1987) leaving his family, followers and fans shocked, grief-stricken and heart-broken.

On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from ‘1976’ movie ‘Aaj Ka Ghar’.

I was not aware of this movie earlier until I came across this song a few years back. I guess this must be a lesser known or may be even an obscure movie (though it is now available on internet and uploaded three months back (the link which I saw).

‘Aaj Ka Ghar-1976’ was directed by Surendra Shailaj for ‘Shi Adarsh Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Jaymala. Surendra Sinha was the production controller for of this movie.

It had Jaymala, Shreeram Lagoo, Romesh Sharma, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Baby Mona, Jalal Agha, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Chandrashekhar, Ramesh Deo, Master Tito and A.K. Hangal. They were supported by K.K. Purohit, Ilaben, Neelam, Jassu Ben, Jagirdar, Nazmu, Lata Sahni, Chhotu, Vinay, Hansa, Jagmohan Juneja, Mohan Thakur, Duggal, A.U. Khatri and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by B.K. Adarsh whereas the basic idea was by Harin Mehta. Editing of this movie was done by Ravi Patankar. Dialogues and lyrics were written by M.G. Hashmat and revised dialogues were written by Surendra Shailaj (who directed the movie).

Music of this movie was composed by music duo Anil-Arun who composed music for many successful Marathi movies from 1971-1991. Both of them worked independently as well as a ‘team’ for Marathi movies. They also worked as assistants (music arranger) for S.D. Burman and also worked as assistants for may Hindi movies jointly as well as independently.

Anil of Anil Arun is the famous music composer and arranger Anil Mohile whereas Arun Paudwal (spouse of Anuradha Paudwal) was music director. However, as Arun Paudwal passed away in 1991 the pair was broken.

Arun Paudwal also composed music for the ‘1992’ movie ‘Meera Ka Mohan’ which was released after his death. And thereafter Anil Mohile continued to give music to Marathi Movies. He also arranged music for more than hundred programs of Lata Mangeshkar and many Hindi movies too. He passed away on 1st February’2012. Lata Mangeshkar penned a heartfelt condolence on his death as he was very close to the Mangeshkar family.

Coming back to the songs of today’s movie the movie had only three songs-one solo each by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal and one duet of Anuradha Paudwal and Adolf.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.12.1976.

Today’s song is a back-ground song sung by Kishore Kumar and written by M.G. Hashmat. Music is composed by Anil-Arun (I guess this the only Hindi movie they jointly composed music for).

They make their debut on the blog with the movie also making its debut on the blog.

In the few initial posts in this series I had presented some background songs sung by Kishore Kumar. I think it would be interesting to compile a list of such background songs he sung in Hindi movies and that gives us an interesting topic for another post in the future.

Secondly when I came back from Kenya after finishing the project there, I had planned that I will surely visit Khandwa on at least two important dates i.e. 4th August and 13th October as the Kishore fans there always have special programs on these dates, however due to the current situation I doubt if the programs would be held there.

Also couple of years back we had heard that the ancestral home of Kishore Kumar in Khandwa is either sold or bought by somebody and it is going to be renovated due to its dilapidated condition. I am not aware of its present status now(or if it has been taken over by the state government as some rumors were there?). But I will always cherish the memories my earlier visits to Khandwa to this place and the Kishore Kumar memorial there on the Khandwa-Indore road.

Remembering the ‘versatile genius’ Abhas Kumar Ganguly – Kishore Kumar today and paying our tributes, let us listen to one of his songs …

I have not watched this movie. But, from the video of the song available it seems that the song gets played in parts in the movie at various situations and twists and turns in the story of the movie.

However, the happy ‘antaraa’ is played in the beginning of the movie (with titles, as I have watched the titles) and is repeated in the end of the movie where we have a ‘happy ending’ 🙂

I hope that you like this song …

(played in background with titles)

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar

Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar

(Lyrics as per video link)

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar

Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein

Kyon tod di jhonkon ne
Gham ke shaakh se khilti kali
Chal diya baaghbaan bhi
Kali raund kar

Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Ae aasmaan ye to bataa
Ye kis khata ki di sazaa
Kyun gaya apna hi dil mera tod kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee

Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aa aa aa aa aa

Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile ae ae
Aa aa aa aa aa
Gardishon mein waqt ki hain

Dil se lagaaya kal jinhen

Chha gaya andhkaar
Ab main jaaun kidhar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

zindagi ki kashmakash se
toot kar jaaun kahaan
main chhoot kar is qaid se
jaaun bhi to jaaun kahaan
sholaa ban jal uthhi ee
meri shaam o sahar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Kaanton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.61
————————————————–—————————————————

Here, we move on to the second and last movie eligible today for the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’.
The movie is ‘Sahaaraa-1958’.

As discussed in earlier post today the other movies represented today ten years back were as under;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye duniyaa rang badalti hai Sahaaraa-1958 07 songs posted
Dil se dil takraaye Love Marriage-1959 All songs covered
Matwaali naar thumak thumak chali jaaye Ek Phool Chaar Kaante-1960 All songs covered
Phir ek baar kaho Maayaa-1961 All songs covered
Dekhi anaadi teri preet Biraadari-1966 All songs covered
Kaun sunegaa kisko sunaayen Sautan Ki Beti-1989 01 song posted

“Sahaara”(1958) had ten songs in it, including one three version song. Two parts of that three version song is covered in the blog in this post. One of its versions could not be covered because that version does not seem to be available. Counting the two versions as two separate songs (as is the case in HFGK), the seven posts in the blog have covered eight songs from the movie so far. The fact that this is a three version song was discovered by me while going through the HFGK entries for this movie. The entries of this song has been updated accordingly, by adding part 3 of this song there. Part 2 ‘Aaghaz muhabbat ki baaten kya faydaa ab dohraane se’ appearently is not available as of now.

Here are the details of the eight songs from “Sahaara”(1958) discussed so far in the blog:-

Song Posted On Remarks
So jaa dukhiyaare 24.06.2009
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye duniyaa rang badalti hai 27.08.2010
Billi bajaaye baajaa 26.11.2010
Andhhon se dayaa karnaa daataa 12.12.2010
Mujhe tarke taalluk ke liye samjhaaya jaata hai 12.12.2011 Three part song, one part unavailable
Chham chham chham chham chale wo maa 16.06.2015
Ban ke suhaagan rahi abhaagan 18.12.2016

We can see that the movie made its debut on the blog on 24.06.2009 i.e. more than eleven years ago.

Well, when I noticed that the music director of this movie is Hemant Kumar and moreover lyrics were written by Bharat Vyas I was more than happy to take a song for presentation and do not want to miss this opportunity (because of special reasons 😊 which is the matter of another post, so keep visiting the blog 😊).

“Sahaaraa-1958’ was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for ‘Tasviristaan, Bombay’. It was produced by Kuldeep Sehgal. The movie had Meena Kumari, M. Rajan, Daisi Irani, Manoj Kumar, Geeta Sinha, Kuldeep Kaur, Kanhaiyalal, Badri Prasad Leela Mishra, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Sagar, Rinku, Shakeel Nomani, Khanna, Black & White, Kardar, Ameer Banu, Chandabai, Sadhna, Maya Das, Kanchanmala and others.The movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.08.1958.

Music of this movie was composed by Hemant Kumar. And lyrics for all the ten songs were written by Bharat Vyas.

The song under discussion is sung by Protima Bannerjee and composed by Hemant Kumar.

Lyrics of this song reminds me of another such song from the movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ – ‘jo dukh se ghabra jaaye wo nahin hind ki naari’. I think we have many songs in Hindi movies falling in this category where the ‘Bhartiya Naari’ is eulogized for her strength and sacrifices for the sake of her family. Today’s song happens in this situation in the movie.

The song is a background song where Meena Kumari can be seen travelling in a ‘bullock-cart’ returning from her ‘In-Laws house’, where her father in law requested her to suffer for the mistake of his own daughter to save his ‘prestige’ in the society …

I have not watched the full movie so can’t say much about it and its other songs …

If we can locate the missing part of the three part song then this song would see the movie getting YIPPEED. But seeing that one part of the song remains uncovered, this movie too remains technically unYIPPEED.
