Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today’s post is under instructions from my husband- Peevesie’s Dad. Oh yes, he is a silent-satulite (a term coined by team Atulites when referring to spouses of Atulites, the term has no geographical or scientific connotation and will be found only in Atulite-lingo 🙂 ). He had asked me to write a post after we returned from a pilgrimage of Sabarimala, which is the abode of Swami Ayyappa. And as far as possible I fulfil every farmaish/ request of his (actually the children, Peevesie more than her brother, rag the two of us for going out of our way to fulfil each other’s requests- there have been no demands between the two of us only requests).

A recent program that I attended at Chowdiah Memorial with Asha Bhonsle as the attraction is a case in point – we were scheduled to go to Kerala on that date to drop my dear mom-in-law at our native village and my husband (sweetly) asked me to go ahead and book tickets for the show and he himself went with his mom. So, when he indulges me how can I not do what he says? 🙂 These last two months I had been looking for a song that would accompany the post but never found any song or bhajan dedicated to Ayyappa in a Hindi song album- filmy or non-filmy. Even looking up dubbed movies drew a blank. Whatever the internet had to offer were songs in the south Indian languages. But now I think I have found a way out.

The pilgrimage to Sabarimala is neither easy nor tough; what it needs is commitment on the part of the devotee. It can be undertaken by all men and females below the age of 10 and above the age of 50. There are a few legends to explain why this restriction is in place for the ladies. But the main reason, for ladies of age group 10-50 not being allowed is biological and instead of arguing against it; which some sections of the equality for females brigade has undertaken, my personal view is we should respect it. If some rule has been in place for an activity we follow it. If there is a dress code to a party we adhere to it. I have seen people follow the rule of covering their heads at gurudwaras and mosques (am not sure if churches have this rule, but have seen some sections of Kerala Christians cover their heads). If rules can be followed at these places then why not at Hindu places of worship. (I hope that my thoughts are not construed to be against equality for the female gender, they are just my way of looking at things)

The Sabarimala temple is open for a few days (of the Malayalam calendar) every month and from November 15th to January 20th (I think). Devotees who plan to undertake the trip normally live a satvik life for a period of 40 days. They abstain from wine and women, the stricter followers make their own food, visit an Ayyappa temple twice a day, walk bare foot and also don’t shave. Then just before leaving for the trip they have a ritual wherein they gather the main things needed for the pilgrimage in a bag which is carried on their heads till they reach the temple. The bag typically contains two or three coconuts, one of which is filled with ghee for the abhishek of the deity. Plus, pooja items like camphor, agarbatti, pan-supari, beaten rice etc.

The temple itself is in the Periyar Tiger Reserve of western ghats in Kerala’s Pathanamthitta District. One can go up to the Pampa river (which is at the base of the path leading up to the temple) by road, from where it is a climb of about 5 kms of which the initial 2 km or so is very steep. Of course, there are a few palkhis available to carry up those who find the climb difficult. But when one sees the passion in those climbing alongside us it spurs us to try and do the distance without palki assistance. That is what happened with me. I felt a sense of tiredness after the initial half an hour; then I saw who were the people around me. There was a small boy taking his almost 80-year-old grandparents with him. Then there was a man with a twisted ankle making his way uphill and that made me feel I should complete the route. And there is the chant of Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa (we take refuge in you ayyappa) reverberating about the route, enough to egg you on. A seasoned devotee (like my husband who has gone close to 25 times) may do the path in about two or two and half hours depending on the weather; and I took about two hours and forty minutes in spite of the initial panting and nausea due to the height. But I must admit that then it had felt like a never-ending walk.

Now any person undertaking the pilgrimage for the first time is called a “Kanni Ayyappan” and our group had two of us. And then last month around Onam time when the temple was open my sister’s family- her husband and two nine-year-old sons- also went to the temple. The twins were the life of the group along with a few other kids. About 10-15 years back my aged parents-in-law and parents had undertaken the trip. So, what I am trying to say is age and health should not stop a determined soul from making the trip and there are experienced Ayyappas (that is the term with which the male devotees address each other) to guide those who want to make the trip and believe me it was a great experience enough to make me feel I should redo it.

Reading the above description may have sent images of the trek to Kedarnath, Yamunotri or Vaishno Devi to the reader. Even I recalled my Kedarnath, Yamunotri trip as I was chanting Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa and singing all the Ayyappa songs I knew to myself during the walk. And in my mind, I visualised my dearest mom-in-law undertaking the Vaishno Devi pilgrimage about 10 years back. Hats off to her spirit! I hope I am half as energetic when I reach her age.

Now that I have mentioned vaishno devi I looked for a song that will show the journey to the temple in the Himalayas in Kashmir. And I found that there is a song in the 1980 released J. Om Prakash movie which shows Rameshwari and Jeetendra going to Vaishno Devi as “Mannat” fulfilment of his mother Sulochana. (wonder why she didn’t accompany them 🙂 ) it shows them trudging up to the temple along with other devotees much like what I experienced. But the difference is the distance which my mom-in-law says is close to 14 kms. The song is from the pen of Anand Bakshi and Laxmi- Pyare are the music directors. Narendra Chanchal and Mohd. Rafi are the playback.
I think this is a good song to start Navaratri with. Bolo Jai Mata Ki!

Editor’ note:- This is the sixth and final song from “Asha”(1980) to appear in the blog. with this song, “Asha”(1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Jai Singh”(1959) was directed by D Yoganand for R R Productions, Madras. It was the dubbed version of Telugu hit movie “Jaysimha”(1955). The movie had N T Ramarao, Waheeda Rehman, Anjali Devi, S V Rangarao, Relangi, Ghummadi, Kantha Ro, K V S Sharma, Rajnala, Rushyendra Mani etc in it.

One song from this movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from “Jai Singh”(1959) to appear in the blog. this song is a bhajan which is sung by Manna Dey. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ramesh Naidu.

Only audio of this song is available. The earlier song posted in the blog, which was a Manna Dey-Lata duet was picturised on N T Rama Rao and Waheeda Rehman, so my guess is that this Manna Dey solo is picturised on N T Rama Rao. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Wandering into the world of movies of 1930s and 40s gives me immense pleasure. Digging for difficult to find information about old films, directors, music directors, singers or actors is an interesting challenge for me.While on a chase for such information, I frequently come to dead ends and then have to seek another road to gaining knowledge. It is very sad that in our country, documentation about films of 1930s and 40s is very poor.

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 04
—————————————————-

Chhaya Ganguly is an ardent disciple of Madhurani, guru to so many other contemporary ghazal singers.

As mentioned earlier, Jaidev ji was so much impressed by Chhaya Ganguly’s voice and its tonal quality, much different from the prevalent style of most of the contemporary singers. He decided to make a devotional album suited to Chhaaya’s voice. The album ‘Bhakti Sudha’ was published by SaReGaMa (originally HMV, and then RPG) in 1983. It contains eight melodious devotional songs. Today’s post is the second Bhajan from this album to be introduced here on our marvellous musical blog. This Bhajan is written by blind poet Surdas-ji.

This Bhajan is set in the typical Boul music from Bengal. This one is one of the most popular bhajans of Surdas. I have not been able to hear two three words in the last stanza. Please will someone help me?

Chhaya Ganguly’s renderings charged with emotions, divine abandon and melody do full justice to the rich contents of the original verses. Her haunting and sensitive style lingers in the mind long after the last note has faded away.

Today(21st August 2017) is the last Monday of the holy month of Shrawan, in the Southern, Western and some Eastern states of India. For the rest of India the Saawan month had ended on the 7th August itself. Today’s Shiv bhajan is from the film Shri Ganesha janma-1951.

Today’s Shiv Bhajan is for the 4th Shraavan Monday – as celebrated in south, west and some eastern states of India. This bhajan is from film ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953), made by Chandrakala Pictures and is produced and directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The lead actors were Anjali Devi (from south) and Bharat Bhushan. In the cast of this film, you will find a name Rajkumar. Most ‘knowledgeable’ sites and writers treat this actor same as the famous dialogue master Raaj Kumar ‘Jaani’. However, this is not correct. This Rajkumar is different.

Today, 13th August is the birthday of Sridevi, as she turns 54.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful dance song performed by her, from the film ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ (1984). The setting for the song is a stage performance, likely at a religious function. On stage, Sridevi is accompanied by Mithun Chaktravarty playing the flute and Beena signing the vocals. We also see Sudhir Dalvi, sitting next to Beena. In the audience we can see Yunus Parvez, sitting in the chair right up front, Sujeet Kumar and Kaanan Kaushal sitting  in the audience, Rakesh Roshan and Deven Verma, standing at the back, with Somayaajulu making an entry, while the program is in progress.

Today’s song is from a film called ‘Shiv Kanya’ (1954). The title may surprise some readers. Did Bhagwan Shiv ji have a daughter? Some people may brush it off thinking that it is yet another fruit of the fertile imagination of the “story department” of the production house. Can’t blame them either, because film makers are known experts in creating close relatives of popular film characters. Some examples are ‘Son of Aladdin’ (1939), ‘Daughter of Hatimtai’ (1940 and 1955) or even ‘Son of Zimbo’ (1966). Poor Alladin or Hatimtai would not be even knowing that they had a son or a daughter !

However, as far as mythological film subjects are concerned, there is absolutely no need to imagine or cook up stories, because the old scriptures like Puraanas provide varied situations for making films. That is how there is a film called ‘Krishna Arjun Yuddh’ in 1934, 1945 and 1971, based on a story from Bhagwat Mahapuraan. We also have ‘Ram Hanuman Yuddh’ in 1957 and 1975, based on Valmiki Ramayan. There was even a strange sounding film called ‘Shankar, Seeta, Anusuya” in 1965, made on a story from Garud Puraan and then there was a film called ‘Vish Waman ‘ (1936) based on Waman Puran.

When I first came across this film ‘Shiv Kanya’ in the mid 50s, I was perplexed, because I was not aware of Shiv Ji having a daughter too ! I knew about Kartikeya and Ganesh. Then I looked into a book ‘Stories from Puraanas’ and I learnt about it. Stories in Puraanas have sometimes slightly different versions in different Puraans. For example, Ram Hanuman Yuddh is mentioned in Valmiki Ramayan and you will find a modified version in Vishnu Puraan also. This is because Puraanas are based on Shrutis and there are additions by many scholars over the centuries.
