#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Raaja Raani -1973#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Raaja Raani’.

This is one of the movies released during ‘Rajesh Khanna era’ in Hindi movies.

I recall to have read that this movie was termed as un-successful or it was even considered as a ‘flop’ movie of its time. But times have changed now and considering various factors (economic) and the collections made by this movie then, this movie is now considered as a ‘hit’ or ‘successful’ movie of its time.

Here is what the Wikipedia page on Rajesh Khanna mentions about this movie now (in the section ‘acting career’ of Rajesh Khanna) –

“As per the review of Raja Rani written in 2014 by ‘The Hindu’ newspaper, the film did well at the box office and, taking into consideration the inflation as of 2014, the film would have grossed more than 100 crores. The attire worn by Khanna was a sleeveless shirt and trousers, thick leather belt, shoes without socks and a black cap.The Hindu review noted “On a lesser actor, the attire would have fallen flat, but Khanna, as a small time thief, carries it with characteristic élan.”

In 1973 Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore appeared together in the following movies (in alphabetical order):

Movie Title Director Lyricist/s Music Director Passed by Censor Board
Aavishkaar Basu Bhattacharya Kapil Kumar, Gyandev Agnihotri Kanu Roy 26.09.1973
Daagh Yash Chopra Sahir Ludhianvi Laxmikant-Pyarelal 30.03.1973
Raajaa Raani Sachin Bhowmick Anand Bakshi R.D. Burman 15.01.1973

Other than the above movies Rajesh Khanna appeared in ‘Namak Haraam’ with Rekha, then in a documentary made by BBC i.e. ‘Bombay Superstar’, and also did a guest appearance in a Telugu movie ‘Bangaru Babu’ (as mentioned on Wikipedia).

Sharmila Tagore appeared in ‘Aa Galey Lag Jaa’ with Shashi Kapoor in 1973 apart from than the three movies with Rajesh Khanna as mentioned above.

“Raaja Raani” was directed by Sachin Bhowmick. He was also the writer of this movie.

Sachin Bhowmick (17 July 1930– 12 April 2011) was mainly as a writer (story and screenplays) for many movies in Hindi. ‘Raaja Raani’ was the only movie where he had done the direction for a movie.

The producer of ‘Raaja Rani’ was Jagdish Kumar and it was presented by J. Omprakash.

‘Raaja Raani’ had Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna, Raj Mehra, Iftekhar, David, Suresh, Brahm Bharadwaj, Asit Sen, Altaaf, Naaz, Dulari, Praveen Pal, Ravikant, Madhup Sharma, Kanu Rai, Uma Dutt, Ratna, Ashok Saxena, Master Manoj, Master Chiku, Baby Subiya, Surender Shore, Indrani Mukherjee, V.K. Sharma (new discovery) and many others.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Dave.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.01.1973.

This movie had seven songs all written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by R.D. Burman.
Here is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Phir aankh se aansoo barse Lata Mangeshkar
02 Haa… mere chehre ki taraf Lata Mangeshkar
03 Jaa re jaa maine tujhe Lata Mangeshkar
04 Main ek chor tu meri raani Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar 08.12.2017
05 Aasmaan pe chaandni ka Lata, Mukesh, Rajesh Khanna 21.10.2008
06 Naa tumse huyi naa hamse huyi Lata Mangeshkar
07 Jab andheraa hotaa hai Asha Bhonsle, Bhupendra, chorus 11.09.2009

(Two songs from this movie ‘Jab andheraa hotaa hai’ and ‘Main ek chor tu meri raani’ made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year 1973 and they stood at number ten and twenty-one respectively.).

We can see from the above table that three songs from this movie have so far been posted on the blog. The movie made its debut on 21.10.2008 on the blog.

The three songs were also the most well-known songs from this movie. The others songs were not that popular and are lesser known songs. But they play their role carrying the movie forward according to the demands of the story.

Today’s song is one such poignant song filmed on Sharmila Tagore. It is a background song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. (We can also see one male and one female artist present in the picturisation of this song whom I am unable to identify.)

I have not yet watched this movie however today’s song (including others) and the following declaration in the voice of Rajesh Khanna, in the beginning of this movie, can give readers the idea of the story of this movie.

“This film is dedicated to those innocent victims of circumstances – The Fallens – who aspire and desire to rehabilitate themselves and become good citizens.”
More details about the story of this movie have been mentioned by Peevesie’s Mom ji in her post with the song ‘main ek chor tu meri raani’ posted on the blog on 08.12.2017.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

Song-Phir aankh se aansoo barse (Raja Rani)(1973)Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se keh do
likhey ek kahaani aur
phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

na kisi ko taras hi aaya
na kisi ko aai laaj
logon ne hanskar dekha phir
ek tamaasha aur
lo aasmaan mein kat gayi
lo aasmaan mein kat gayi
phir ek patang ki dor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

phir ik aangan ki chhaaon
ban gayi parbat ki dhoop
phir ik gangaa ki mauj ne
badlaa madiraa ka roop
phir ik panghat ki raani
phir ik panghat ki raani
chal di marghat ki ore
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

kit jaaye ud kar panchhi
jiske na par naa ??
aur chaaron taraf shikaari
baithhe phailaaye jaal
is choron ki nagari mein
is choron ki nagari mein
har koyi roop ka chor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur
phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 36
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 24 march 2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5686 Beena madhur madhur kachhu bol Ram Rajya(1943) 5 songs covered so far out of 12
5687 Chhota sa fasaana hai tere mere pyaar ka Birha Ki Raat(1950) Movie YIPPEED by now
5688 Ye zindagi ka mausam aur ye samaa suhaana Ghoonghat (1960) Movie YIPPEED by now
5689 Wo ghar ghar ke diye bujhaakar bane huye dhanwaan Ham Bhi Insaan Hain (1948) 4 songs covered so far out of 9
5690 Chal diye banda nawaaz Mr and Mrs 55(1955) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see from the table that three of the movies whose songs were covered on 24 march 2012 have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with two movies that are still unYIPPEED and therefore eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today on 24 March 2022.

“Ram Rajya”(1943) is one such movie.

“Ram Rajya”(1943) was produced and directed by Vijay Shankar Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Prem Adib, Shobhana Samarth, Umakant Desai, Chandrakant, Badri Prasad, Yeshawant Nikam, Pandit, Ranjana, Amirbai Karnataki, Shanta Kumari, Athawaale, Madhusudan Jani, Pande etc in it.

This movie had 12 songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Ram Rajya”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by a male singer that is not identified in HFGK. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Rao Vyas.

The song is picturised as a song being sung on the occasion of the coronation of Lord Ram (played by Prem Adib.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the singer. From the voice, it appears that the singer was a classiclly trained singer.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The song appears twice in the movie– once in the childhood of the hero of the movie (i.e., Deb Mukherji). His mother (Solochana) sings it when she is about to leave him with Abhi Bhattacharya and Achala Sachdev . The second time the song appears is when she has died and her son lights her funeral pyre.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Sulochana Latkar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Achala Sachdev, Deb Mukherji and others.

Lyrics for today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

(Lyrics for both the versions are same however videos are different as the song gets played on two different occasions in the movie. The second version does not have the ‘mukhda’ but ‘antaras’ are same).

Let us listen to the today’s song now and pay our tributes to Kavi Pradeep.

For today’s presentation we have a song from the movie ‘Aar Paar-1985’. This movie will make its debut on the blog today. This was one of the reasons to select a song from this movie. The other reason being that the song is sung by R.D. Burman himself. Another reason is that this song is a lesser-heard song as well. But if one listens to this song a few times it grows upon you. It is a very nice hummable philosophical song.

Today (4 january 2022) happens to be the twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Day’ (27 June 1939 – 4 January 1994) of our beloved Pancham Da. It has been twenty-eight years since he left us forever. But the music that he created will remain with us forever as long as HFM is around.

This is the fifth song in this series. I had kept this song up my sleeve for this day after drafting it more than one month back.

The song being posted today is our tribute to ‘Pancham Da’ and his ‘music’ in HFM.

The song is from the movie ‘Aar-Paar’(1985). ‘Aar-Paar'(1985) was directed by Shakti Samanta for his home productions ‘Shakti Films, Bombay’. Shakti Samanta was also the producer of this movie. It was an Indo-Bangladesh Co-Production. And Syed Hasan Imam (of Chitrangan-Dhaka) was the Co-Producer of this movie from Bangladesh.

‘Aar-Paar'(1985) had Mithun Chakravarty, Rosina, Nutan, Asit Sen, Utpal Dutt, Manik Dutt, Tarun Ghose, Ghulam Mustafa, Hasan Imam, A.T.M. Shamsuz Zaman, Ahmed Sharif, Ghulam Rafique, Madhu, Shekhar, Amal Bose, Kali Pada Sen, Bullet, Qutub, Mohammad Ali, Chunnu, Minhaz, Barua, Nurul Islam, Sumita Devi, Shahre Banu, Maya Ghose, Reena, Papiya and others.

Story of this movie was written by Shakti Pada Rajguru. Screenplay of this movie was jointly written by Shakti Samanta and Shanu Bannerjee.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Pradeep Roy Chowdhury. Bijoy Chowdhury was the editor of this movie.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Sabeena, Yasmin and R.D. Burman had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.11.1985.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is played in the background while we can see some policemen taking Mithun Chakravarty with them while some villagers (including friends of Mithun Chakravarty in the movie) are seen watching them.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman. lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is composed by R.D. Burman.

(This post also serves of bringing movies with same title on the blog. With this song Aar-Paar(1985) joins the well-known movie ‘Aar Paar-(1954) in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 153 # Rafi Saab’s ninety-seventh birth anniversary#
———————————————

Today 24th December’2021 is the ninety-seventh birth anniversary of legendary singer Mohd Rafi (24.12.1924-31.07.1980).

Much has already been said and written about Rafi Saab on this blog and elsewhere. What I will say will be nothing new, so I will not go into his biography and other details.

For me he will always be ‘a divine messenger of humanity and a divine voice’.

Today on his birth anniversary we remember him and pay our tributes. On this occasion I am presenting a song from ‘1972’ movie ‘Kaun Sachchaa Kaun Jhoothha’.

‘Kaun Sachchaa Kaun Jhoothha-1972’ was directed by Jankiram for P.S.R. Pictures, Madras. Jankiram had also done the photography of this movie.

This movie was produced by P. Subbarao. It had Vijaylalita, Jyotilakshami, Krishna, Prabhakar Reddy, Tyagraju, Ramdas, Padmashri V. Nagiyah, Lakshamichhaya, Junior Kanchana, Helen, and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by A.M. Samiyulla. Dialogues were written by Raj Joshi. Editing of this film was done by Kandaswamy.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.08.1972. That means this movie will be completing its fifty years in August’2022.

This movie had six songs written by Kewal and composed by Satyam. Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Preeti, L.R. Eswari and Madhukar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

One song from this movie have been posted on the blog. This post was presented by Sudhir ji, and it can be read in detail here. This movie ‘Kaun Sachcha Kaun Jhoothha’ was a dubbed movie. The original movie was in Telugu language.

The list of the songs the Hindi version has is as given below.

05 Haay, haay, haay, haay, sun jaa Madhukar, L.R. Eswari
06 Karam nahin mit’ta, dharam nahin bikta Mohd Rafi Being discussed today

We can see from the above table that one song of this movie ‘Kaun Sachchaa Kaun Jhoothha’ has been posted on the blog on 07.03.2016. Today we are going to listen to the second song of this movie which again is a solo song sung by Rafi Saab. I had come across this song during my daily browsing of the song long back. However, this song is yet to be posted and today we are going to have it on this blog.

Let us listen to this song and remember the divine voice – Rafi Saab!

(PS: I was about to finish this article and had written these lines – ‘I wonder if the Hindi (dubbed) version of this movie is available online or elsewhere’. But when I checked online this movie is already available online. And one can watch it there.
I have only now watched the picturization of today’s song which shows the hero as a ‘robin hood type’ character and he is riding on the horse. That may remind many of the famous Hindi movie ‘robin hood characters’ riding on the horse and singing or a song playing in the background. But this song though nice, fails to create the impact like ‘jeewan mein tu darna nahin’. 😊 )

Lyrics

Karam nahin mit’ta
Dharam nahin bikta
Hazaaron adchanen hon
Badho re
Jagaao kan kan ko
Hansaaon janman ko
Badho re

Ho

Ho o karam nahin mit’ta
Ho o dharam nahin bikta

Mashaal ban kar tu
Andheri raahon ko
Ujaala deta ja
Ujaala
Mita de hasti ko
Wo pahunche manzil ko
Badho re

Badho re
Ho o karam nahin mit’ta

Nayi ik duniya ho

Prajaa hi raaja ho

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part LXIII: Year 2015
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, the 63nd episode, we cover Lata Mangeshkar songs that she sang in Hindi movies released in 2015. In the previous episode, we covered a Lata Mangeshkar song from a movie of 2011. So this time we should have covered a movie song of 2012. But it turns out that Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in Hindi movies released in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2015, she sang one song in a movie. So, in this episode we jump over three years and arrive at the year of 2015.

Lata Mangeshkar sang just one song in one movie released in 2015.

Here are the details of the song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 2011 :-

S N Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists
1 DunnoY2 Life is a moment Nikhil Kamath 0 1 1 0 0 0 Vimal Kashyap
Total 1 movie 1 MD 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 lyricist

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 1 music director and 1 lyricist in this one movie released in 2015.

Laxmikant Pyarelal were the most prolific music directors with Lata, with 664 songs in HFM with Lata Mangeshkar by the end of 2007. Shankar Jaikishan with 457 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were in the second position. R D Burman with 332 Lata Mangeshkar and Kalyanji Anandji with 307 songs were next ahead of C Ramchandra with 275 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (239), Madan Mohan (204), S D Burman (179),Naushad (146), Roshan (144), Hemant Kumar (127), Anil Biswas (120), Bappi Lahiri (112), Rajesh Roshan (111), Salil Chaudhary (109), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), and Vasant Desai (104). Together these seventeen music directors composed 3742 songs out of 5244 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 2015. Anand Bakshi with 731 songs was the top lyricist with Lata Mangeshkar. Other leading lyricists with Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (555), Majrooh Sultanpuri (407), Shailendra (361), Hasrat Jaipuri (301), Prem Dhawan (201), Bharat Vyas (193), Shakeel Badayuni (189), Sahir Ludhianvi (161) and Indeewar (156). These ten lyricists had penned 3252 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar till that time.

The above figures have remained unchanged for several years because Lata Mangeshkar no longer got to collaborate with the above music directors and lyricists after 2000.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 2015 :

“DunnoY2 Life is a moment”(2015) is the only movie released in 2015 that had a song in it which was sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

“DunnoY2 Life is a moment”(2015) was directed by Kapil Sharma for Movies Masti Magic Studios, Mumbai. The movie had Zeenat Aman, Kapil Sharma, Yuvraaj Parashar, Meera, Sadia Khan, Danish Bhat, Roniel Rajkunwar, Tonje Gjevjon, Injeborg Kolle, Edith Roth Gjevjon, Nasrullah Qureshi, Saru Maini, Nary Singh, Rahul Chaudhary, Shubham Sharma, Rahool Chaudhary, Kushal Anand, Manisha Mendonza, Shashi Shaini, Sara Marielle Gaup Beaska, Mona Krager, Ellen Froysaa, Amir Malik, Tarje F. Jortoft , Marius Loftum etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has the voice of Lata Mangeshkar.

Here is that song.
The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Vimal Kashyap is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nikhil Kamath.

The song is picturised on Yuvraj Parashar and Kapil Kaustubh Sharma.

Lyrics of the song and other details are provided by Prakashchandra.

With this song, the movie “DunnoY2 Life is a moment”(2015) makes its debut in the blog.

Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any other songs in Hindi movies released in the subsequent years. So with this article, we have come to the end of this marathon series of Lata Mangeshkar songs which began on monday 27 september 2020 and continued for 63 mondays without a break.

List of Lata Mangeshkar songs till 1985 can be taken from the six volumes of HFGK. Songs from 1986 till 1989 can be seen from Lata Mangeshkar Gandhar Swaryatra. But no list of Lata Mangeshkar songs after 1989 is available. Searching for Lata Mangeshkar songs after 1989 was a voyage which was undertaken by me, and also by Prakashchandra (independent of each other). In the process, we may have discovered several Lata Mangeshkar songs that few music lovers may have been aware of.

I take this opportunity to thank Prakashchandra, who on his own initiative was searching for Lata Mangeshkar songs independentally. Searching for Lata Mangehkar songs sung by her after 2000 is like searching for needle in haystack, and prakashchandra has been a great help in this backbreaking work. I cannot thank him enough for this work which he undertook on his own for last so many weeks.

The yearwise breakup of Lata Mangeshkar songs is done and dusted with. During this journey, I have come up with vast amount of statistics pertaining to Lata Mangeshkar songs. For instance, I can now tell you how many male duets and how many female duets she has sung with which singers. I can give exact number of songs that she has sung for various music directors and lyricists. I will come up with those statistics sometime in future on suitable occcasions.

In future, I may undertake similar exercises for other big name singers as well. Keep watching these spaces.

As the final offering of this series here is the very last song of Lata Mangeshkar that she sang in Hindi movies:-

4887 Post No. : 16685

This day that year 50 years ago.

4 dec 1971

We are into 2021. 1971 was exactly 50 years ago. How many of us are aware that the calenders of the two years are identical ! The calender of 1971 can be used in 2021 as well !

It was on the midnight on 3/4 december 2021 that Mrs Indira Gandhi, then Indian prime minister addressed the Indian public on radio. It was a national emergency that is why this address to the nation was at that unearthly hour. At around 5:30 PM, Pakistan Air Force had launched a pre emptive attack on Indian air force bases located on the west. They bombed 12 air bases in not one or two waves, but in three waves throughout the evening and night.

Mrs Gandhi had addressed the nation to inform Indians that Pakistan had attacked India and so India now had to face the aggression.

This address to the nation was made first in English and then in Hindi. It is available on youtube.

The full address was

I speak to you at a moment of grave peril to our country and our people. Some hours ago, soon after 5:30 P.M. on Dec. 3, Pakistan launched full scale war against us.

The Pakistan Air Force suddenly struck at our airfields in Amritsar, Pathankot, Srinagar, Avantipur, Utterlai, Jodhpur, Ambala and Agra.

Their ground forces are shelling our defense positions in Sulemankhi, Khemkaran, Poonch and other sectors.

Since last March we have borne the heaviest of burdens and withstood the greatest of pressure and a tremendous effort to urge the world to help in bringing about peaceful solution, in preventing annihilation of an entire people whose only crime was to vote democratically.

But the world ignored the basic causes and concerned itself only with certain repercussions.

The situation was bound to deteriorate, and the courageous band of freedom fighters have been staking their all in defense of the values for which we also have struggled and which are basic to our way of life.

Today, the war in Bangla Desh has become a war on India, and this imposes upon me, my Government and the people of India an awesome responsibility. We have no other option but to put our country on a war footing. Our brave officers and jawans are at their posts, mobilized for the defense of the country. Emergency has been declared for the whole of India. Every necessary step is being taken, and we are prepared for any eventualities.

I have no doubt that it is the united will of our people that this wanton and unprovoked aggression of Pakistan should be decisively and finally repelled. In this resolve, the Government is assured of the full and unflinching support of all political parties and every Indian citizen.

We must be prepared for a long period of hardship and sacrifice. We are a peaceloving people, but we know that peace cannot last if we do not guard our freedom, our democracy and our way of life. So today we fight, not merely for territorial integrity, but for the basic ideals which have given strength to this country, and in this alone we can progress to a better future. Aggression must be met and the people of India will meet it with fortitude and determination, with discipline and the utmost unity.

Pakistan think tank had drawn inspiration from Israel’s strategy during 1967 Israel-Arab 6 days war when Israel Air Force, in “operation Focus” had destroyed all air bases of their enemy nations (Egypt, Syria and Jordan) and rendered their airbases and aircrafts useless in a pre emptive air raid. In all, 450 aircrafts were destroyed. 18 Egyptian airfields were destroyed in a matter of hours on 5 june 1967.

Pakistani operation drew inspiration from Israel’s “operation Focus”. Pakistani operation was code named “Operation Chenghiz Khan” and it was launched at 5:30 PM IST on 3 december 1971, which, like in 2021 was a friday.

Pakistan, unlike Israel, failed to inflict any serious damage, despite attacking as many as 12 air force bases, that too in three waves. Unlike Egypt, Syria and Jordan, whose Air forces were rendered useless, Indian Air Force were able to launch its counterattack almost immediately.

As Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi prepared to addressed the nation on radio shortly after midnight informing about the Pakistani attack, the Indian Air Force had already struck back. By 21:00hrs, the Canberras of the No.35 Squadron and No.106 Squadron, as well as No.5 and No.16 squadron were armed and ready for their foray deep into Pakistan. These flew against eight Western Pakistani airbases: Murid, Mianwali, Sargodha, Chandhar, Risalewala, Rafiqui, and Masroor. In total, 23 combat sorties were launched that night, inflicting heavy damage to Sargodha and Masroor airbases. The PAF units stationed on these airfields had to operate from taxiways for the following two days.

Through the night the Indian Air Force also struck the main East Pakistani airfields of Tejgaon, and later Kurmitola. At the same time, the Indian Air Force was deploying additional aircraft to its forward airfields for the strikes that were to follow the next morning. Within days, India was able to achieve air superiority.

So, unlike the result of “Operation Focus” for Israel, “Operation Chengiz Khan” proved counterproductive for Pakistan. Of its stated objectives, the PAF was unable to neutralize the Indian Air Force in the west, which on its part had dispersed its aircraft in hardened aircraft shelters, suffering only minor damage to a few aircraft.

Newsweek magazine (1971) described the attack as :

Trying to catch the Indian Air Force napping, Yahya Khan, launched a Pakistani version of Israel’s 1967 air blitz in hopes that one rapid attack would cripple India’s far superior air power. But India was alert, Pakistani pilots were inept, and Yahya’s strategy of scattering his thin air force over a dozen air fields was a bust!

When Indian retaliation came, it was not just from air force, but from navy and army as well. It is something that the Pakistani arm chair generals may not have anticipated while living in delusion and planning “Operation Chenghiz Khan”.

It was not Indian Air Force, but Indian Navy that hit Pakistan where it hurt them the most.

The Port of Karachi housed the headquarters of the Pakistan Navy and almost its entire fleet was based in Karachi Harbour. Since Karachi was also the hub of Pakistan’s maritime trade, a blockade would be disastrous for Pakistan’s economy. The security of Karachi Harbour was predominant to the Pakistani High Command and it was heavily defended against any air or naval strikes. The port’s airspace was secured by the strike aircraft based at airfields in the area.

On 4 December, Karachi Strike Group was formed by Indian navy. It consisted of the three Vidyut-class missile boats: INS Nipat, INS Nirghat and INS Veer, each armed with four Soviet made SS-N-2B Styx surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 40 nautical miles (74 km), two Arnala-class anti-submarine corvettes: INS Kiltan and INS Katchall, and a fleet tanker, INS Poshak. The group was under the command of Commander Babru Bhan Yadav, the commanding officer of the 25th Missile Boat Squadron.

As planned, on 4 December, the strike group reached 250 nautical miles (460 km) south off the coast of Karachi, and maintained its position during the day, outside the surveillance range of the Pakistan Air Force. As Pakistani aircraft did not possess night-bombing capabilities, it was planned that the attack would take place between dusk and dawn. At 10.30 pm Pakistan Standard Time , the Indian task group moved 180 nautical miles (330 km ) from its position towards the south of Karachi. Soon Pakistani targets, identified as warships, were detected 70 nmi (130 km) to the northwest and northeast of the Indian warships.

INS Nirghat drove forward in a northwesterly direction and fired its first Styx missile at PNS Khaibar, a Pakistani Battle-class destroyer. Khaibar, assuming it was a missile from Indian aircraft, engaged its anti-aircraft systems. The missile hit the right side of the ship, exploding below the galley in the electrician’s mess deck at 10.45 pm . This led to an explosion in the first boiler room. Subsequently, the ship lost propulsion, and was flooded with smoke. An emergency signal that read: “Enemy aircraft attacked in position 020 FF 20. No. 1 boiler hit. Ship stopped”, was sent to Pakistan Naval Headquarters (PNHQ). Due to the chaos created by the explosion, the signal contained the wrong coordinates of the ship’s position. This delayed rescue teams from reaching its location. Observing that the ship was still afloat, Nirghat fired its second missile hitting Khaibar in the second boiler room on the ship’s starboard side, eventually sinking the ship and killing 222 sailors.

After verifying two targets in the area northwest of Karachi, at 11.00 pm (PKT), INS Nipat fired two Styx missiles – one each at cargo vessel MV Venus Challenger(Coming from Saigon and carrying American arms and ammunition for Pakistan army) and its escort PNS Shah Jahan, a C-class destroyer. Venus Challenger, carrying ammunition for the Pakistani forces, exploded immediately after the missile hit, and eventually sank 23 nmi (43 km) south of Karachi. The other missile targeted Shah Jahan and damaged the ship very badly. At 11.20 pm (PKT), PNS Muhafiz, an Adjutant-class minesweeper, was targeted by INS Veer. A missile was fired and Muhafiz was struck on the left side, behind the bridge. It sank immediately before it could send a signal to the PNHQ, killing 33 sailors.

Meanwhile, INS Nipat continued towards Karachi and targeted the Kemari oil storage tanks, placing itself 14 nmi (26 km) south of the Karachi harbour. Two missiles were launched; one misfired, but the other hit the oil tanks, which burned and were destroyed completely, causing a Pakistani fuel shortage. The task force returned to the nearest Indian ports.

Soon the PNHQ deployed rescue teams on patrol vessels to recover the survivors of Khaibar. As Muhafiz sank before it could transmit a distress call, the Pakistanis only learned of its fate from its few survivors who were recovered when a patrol vessel steered towards the ship’s burning flotsam.

The operation was carried for 90 minutes, which resulted in the firing of six missiles by Indian Navy that destroyed four enemy vessels. This day saw the first use of anti-ship missiles in combat in the region.

Pakistan lost a minesweeper, a destroyer, a cargo vessel carrying ammunition, and fuel storage tanks in Karachi. Another destroyer was also badly damaged and eventually scrapped.

In retaliation, Pakistan air force launched an attack on Okha Port. Indians had anticipated this attack and so they had removed all naval ships from Okha. PAF ended up damaging fuelling facilities for missile boats, an ammunition dump, and the missile boats’ jetty.

These damages delayed the next attack of Indian navy by three days. The next attack on Karachi port was launched three days later. This operation was code named “Operation Python”.

Though the Indian Navy had strategic victory with Operation Trident, its main target, the oil storage facilities in Karachi were still operational as only one of the two missiles fired had hit them. This failure was later assessed as the result of confusion created between the commanding officers of the three missile boats. Furthermore, the Indians mistook tracer fire from the coastal artillery of Karachi as originating from Pakistani aircraft and retreated hurriedly before they could properly target the tanks.

On the night of 8/9 December 1971, at 10:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time (PKT), in rough seas, a small strike group consisting of the missile boat INS Vinash, equipped with four Styx missiles, and two multipurpose frigates, INS Talwar and INS Trishul, approached Manora, a peninsula south of the Port of Karachi. During their voyage, a Pakistani patrol vessel was encountered and sunk. The Indian Navy’s official historian, Vice Admiral Hiranandani in his book Transition to Triumph, mentioned that while the group approached Karachi, Trishul’s electronic surveillance revealed that the radar there had stopped rotating and was directed straight at the group, confirming that it had been detected.

Around 11.00 pm (PKT), the group detected a batch of ships at a distance of 12 nmi (22 km). Vinash immediately fired all four of its missiles, the first of which struck the fuel tanks at the Kemari Oil Farm causing a heavy explosion. Another missile hit and sank the Panamanian fuel tanker SS Gulf Star. The third and fourth missiles hit the Pakistani Navy fleet tanker PNS Dacca and the British merchant vessel SS Harmattan. Dacca was damaged beyond repair, while Harmattan sank. As Vinash had now expended all of its missiles, the group immediately withdrew to the nearest Indian port.

Between Operations Trident and Python, and the Indian Air Force attacks on Karachi’s fuel and ammunition depots, more than fifty percent of the total fuel requirement of the Karachi zone was reported to have been destroyed. The result was a crippling economic blow to Pakistan. The damage was estimated to be worth $3 billion, with most of the oil reserves and ammunition warehouses and workshops destroyed. The Pakistan Air Force was also affected by the loss of fuel.

The Pakistani High Command ordered ships to reduce their ammunition dumps so as to reduce the explosion damage if hit. The ships were also ordered not to manoeuvre out at sea, especially during the night, unless ordered to do so. These two measures severely demoralized Pakistani naval crews. With the destruction caused by the Indian Navy, neutral merchant vessels soon started to seek safe passage from the Indian authorities before heading to Karachi. Gradually, neutral ships ceased sailing for Karachi. In effect, a de facto naval blockade was created by the Indian Navy.

As a result of these two operations, Karachi port was rendered unuseable.

So, Pakistan’s attempt to neutralise Indian Air Force in the west resulted in Pakistan navy and Pakistan maritime activity in the west getting neutralised. !

Navy operations do not receive the same coverage as air force operations and army operations, but these navy operations decisively swung the balance Indian way, and the ability of Pakistan to send and receive materials by sea route was absolutely crippled. Air route was in any case out of question. The two parts of Pakistan were physically cut of from each other.

This day 4 december 1971 was a big feather in the cap of Indian Navy. From that day onwards, this day is celebrated in India as Indian Navy day.

So today is the Indian Navy day. Let us hail Indian Military in general and Indian Navy in particular, whose swift retaliation on this this day 50 years ago quickly put paid to Pakistani evil designs of doing an Israel on India. When the dust settled, Pakistan had ended up getting dismembered, losing East Pakistan in the process. From that war onwards Pakistan army has not dared to enter into another war with India.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Border”(1997). This song is a befitting song for the occasion, seeing that the movie itself was based on 1971 war. This song in particular fits the Indian mood perfectly as it would have been on this day 50 years ago.

“Devtaa”(1956) was produced by K S Narayanan and directed by Patanna for Narayanan and Company, Bombay. This “kaalpnik” movie had Anjali Devi, Vyjyanti Mala, Ganesh, Kumari Kamla, Bipin Gupta, Krishna Kumari, Agha Indira, Nambiar, Roop Kumar, Kamal Krishn etc in it.

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

Here is the fifth song from “Devtaa”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a background song. The picturisation shows a princess getting married to an ugly and deformed man and as befits an Ideal Bhartiya Nari, she is supposed to follow in the footsteps of her husband wherever he goes. That is the message that this song conveys in the background.

I am unable to identify the actors in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeale readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Udhar Chali jaa Jaanki jidhar chale tere Raam(Devtaa)(1956) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

mud kar bhi na dekh suhaagan
mahlon ki ye shaan
is duniya mein ab tera bas
pati hi hai bhagwaan

udhar chali ja jaanki
jidhar chale tere raam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam
udhar chali ja jaanki
jidhar chale tere raam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam

bhaarat ki santaan hai tu
saawitri ka roop
bhaarat ki santaan hai tu
saawitri ka roop
sita ban kar sahti jaana
ban ban ki tu dhoop
hanste hanste ladti ja
tu jeewan ka sangraam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam

pativrata tere tej ke aage
sooraj bhi sharmaaye
pativrata tere tej ke aage
sooraj bhi sharmaaye
tere ek ishaare se ye baadal jal barsaaye
tere ek ishaare se ye baadal jal barsaaye
tere jaisi satiyon se hi bhaarat ka hai naam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam

pati kahe to phool chhod kar
kaante gale laga le ae ae
pati kahe to phool chhod kar
kaante gale laga le
preetam ke charnon mein apna
tu sansaar basa le
preetam ke charnon mein apna
tu sansaar basa le
kutiya mein bhi tujhe milega
mahlon ka aaraam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam
udhar chali ja jaanki
jidhar chale tere raam
chhod na apna raasta
le himmat se kaam
jaanki le himmat se kaam
