Today, December 30, 2020 is 7th Remembrance Day of Lakshmi Shankar.

What a musical journey Lakshmi Shankar had in her career spreading over 7 decades! Her journey from a Bharatnataym dancer to Uday Shankar’s ballet dancer, an actress in a Tamil film, a playback singer in Hindi films, a Hindustani classical vocalist and as a catalyst in spreading the Hindustani classical music across the continents is unparalleled. And it is more so for a woman who had to cross the societal barrier. Lakshmi Shankar was really a woman of substance.

In 2009, 83-year-old Lakshmi Shankar received a Grammy Nomination for Best Traditional World Music Album. Although she could not make it to the final list, the Grammy nomination itself was a great event for a woman Hindustani classical vocalist in the Western music dominated award. The irony is that she never got the status of a celebrity in her own country. She did not get any ‘Padma’ awards from Government of India nor any award from Sangeet Academy – whether Central or State levels.

Lakshmi Shankar, was born as Mahalakshmi Sastri (16/06/1926- 30/12/2013) in Jamshedpur where her father Vaidyanath Sastri was employed in Tata Iron and Steel Company as a Chartered Accountant. He was a native of a village in Pudukkottai district. Her mother, Visalaksi was from Palghat (Palakkad) district – both districts being part of the then Madras Presidency. During Vaidyanath Sastri’s stay in Jamshedpur, Mahatma Gandhi made a number of visits to Jamshedpur. The result was that he became attracted to Gandhian ideology. Mahatma Gandhi picked him up to devote time for the upliftment of harijans. He left the job and shifted to Poona (Pune) in 1930 for the assigned work. His other family members, including Lakshmi Shankar, shifted to Madras (Chennai).

At the age of 8, Lakshmi was put under Guru Kandappa Pillai for learning Bharatnataym dance in Chennai. At the age of 11, she performed her arangetram in Bharatnatyam dance. At the age of 13, she joined Uday Shankar’s India Cultural Centre in Almora for training in fusion dances. During her stint in Almora, Lakshmi Shankar got married to Rajendra Shankar, (the next younger brother of Uday Shankar) who was 21 years older than her. Rajendra Shankar, with M.Sc. in Physics and Chemistry was working as a script writer and was handling publicity in Uday Shankar’s Dance Academy. During 1940-43, Lakshmi Shankar travelled across India as one of the dancers with Uday Shankar’s dance troupe. In 1944, Uday Shankar’s India Cultural Centre in Almora was closed down due to financial constraints.

Following the closure of Uday Shankar’s Dance Academy, Lakshmi Shankar with her husband and brother-in-law, Ravi Shankar came to Mumbai. Both the Shankar brothers got associated with Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA). While Rajendra Shankar joined Bombay Talkies (later Filmistan) as story and script writer, Ravi Shankar got his first assignment for scoring music for Chetan Anand’s ‘Neecha Nagar’ (1946) followed by K A Abbas’s ‘Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946). In the first film, Lakshmi Shankar sang for Kamini Kaushal a lullaby so na o nanhi so na. In ‘Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946), she sang beete ho sukh ke din aayee dukh ki ratiyaan.

With these two films, the musical collaboration of Lakshmi Shankar with her brother-in-law, Ravi Shankar started which continued until the latter’s death in December 2012.

Ravi Shankar and his other associates were disillusioned with IPTA as they were not given the freedom in creating the work of their respective fields. Ravi Shankar set up his own artists’ group in which his wife Annapurna Devi, sister-in-law, Lakshmi Shankar and his elder brother, Rajendra Shankar, Zohra Sehgal, Shanti Bardhan etc became the important part of this group.

It was around this time that Jawaharlal’s Nehru’s book ‘The Discovery of India’ (1946) was published and Ravi Shankar felt that this book was a good choice for adapting it as a ballet-cum-opera on the stage. He got the financial backing for the project from Indian National Theatre, the cultural wing of the Indian National Congress. While Ravi Shankar and Annapurna Devi took charge of the music, Rajendra Shankar wrote the script and looked after the production. Lakshmi Shankar and Sachin Shankar became the main dancers to be choreographed by Shanti Bardhan.

The premier of ‘The Discovery of India Ballet-Cum-Opera’ was held in New Delhi in April 1947 in the presence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The premier of the ballet-cum-opera was highly successful. Later, it was staged at many prominent cities all over India because of which Lakshmi Shankar became a well-known dancer.

In 1948, while the ballet-cum-opera was still being staged, Lakshmi Shankar fell ill and was diagnosed as suffering from pleurisy affecting her lungs. She was taken back to her house in Chennai for recuperation. The doctor advised her to give up dancing as it would be too hard for her weak lungs. With this, her professional dancing career came to an end.

After a complete recovery from illness, Lakshmi Shankar returned to Mumbai where her husband was already working as a story and screenplay writer in Amiya Chakraborty’s film production company, ‘Mars & Movies’. [Lakshmi Shankar’s younger sister Kamala Sastri was married to Amiya Chakraborty in 1951]. In the absence of dancing, she thought of pursuing the playback singing career in films.

Post-illness, Lakshmi Shankar sang jingles in some advertising films and got a chance to sing a bhajan ‘in Aandhiyaan (1952). It was during her rehearsal of the song recording for the film ‘Mastaana’ (1954) when its music director, Madan Mohan advised her to learn Hindustani classical music as he felt that her voice was most suited for thumri singing. Though Lakshmi Shankar liked Hindustani classical music in instruments, she was not keen to become Hindustani classical vocalist.

It was because of Madan Mohan’s persistence that Lakshmi Shankar agreed to give a try. The next day, Madan Mohan came to her house with Ustad Abdul Rehman Khan of Patiala Gharana and with a harmonium. Madan Mohan played on harmonium and Ustad played on his swarmandal. Ustad’s one line of some bandish mesmerised Lakshmi Shankar so much that she resolved to learn Hindustani classical music as a vocalist from him.

Lakshmi Shankar completed her training in three years’ time. In January 1957, she gave her maiden performance at Entally Music Festival in Kolkata which was very much appreciated. With this success, she was invited to many music festivals all over India. She continued learning Hindustani classical music with Professor B R Deodhar and completed her Bachelor of Music degree under him. In the meanwhile, she occasionally sang for Hindi films as playback singer about 30 songs in 20 films from 1946 to 1974. In the Marathi film ‘Pativrata’ (1959), she had sung 2 thumris with Pandit Bhimsen Joshi.

In 1962-63, she got her first opportunity for a 4-month tour to the USA and Europe as a part of Uday Shankar’s group as a lead vocalist and the music director of the ballet orchestra. In 1968, Ravi Shankar organised the Festival of India in the USA in which she was again a lead vocalist along with many eminent musicians from India. In 1970, she travelled to Italy (Rome, Florence and Venice) and the Shiraz Festival in Iran for her solo performance as a vocalist.

Some of Lakshmi Shankar’s notable works included her cross collaborations with George Harrison in 1974. One of her collaborations with him was a Krishna song in English, ‘I am missing you’ which received good receptions in its live performance throughout the USA. This song made her well-known in the Western countries. The English song was written by Pandit Ravi Shankar. She also sang a couple of soulful bhajans in Attenborough’s Oscar winning film ‘Gandhi’ (1982) for which Ravi Shankar was the music director.

Lakshmi Shankar had been travelling quite often on her musical tours abroad either as a part of Pandit Ravi Shankar’s troupe or as a solo performer. For this reason, Lakshmi Shankar moved to the USA along with her family and took permanent residency near Los Angeles in 1984. She cut many discs in the USA and Europe besides India. Later in her life, she started teaching Hindustani classical music to American-Indians in her house in Simi Valley, California.

With the death of Pandit Ravi Shankar on December 11, 2012, Lakshmi Shankar’s collaborations with him of over 7 decades ended. It had started first as dancers in Uday Shankar’s academy in 1939, as a playback singer under his music direction in 1946, as a dancer in his ballet-cum-opera ‘Discovery of India’ in 1947-48 and both national and international collaboration from 1963 onwards with him. After Ravi Shankar’s death, Lakshmi Shankar’s health started deteriorating. Almost one year after her mentor’s death, Lakshmi Shankar passed away on December 30, 2013.

On the occasion of the 7th Remembrance Day of Lakshmi Shankar, I am presenting one of her popular non-film Krishna bhajans, ehi Muraare kunjavihaare (1979). She has rendered this bhajan in Raag Pahadi. Most of the on-line references have accredited this Sanskrit bhajan to Jayadeva. But a section of the listeners has pointed out that this bhajan is not found in Jayadeva’s Ashtapadi.

Lakshmi Shankar recorded this devotional song in the USA which became a part of a Long-Playing Record, ‘Lakshmi Shankar Sings Devotional Songs’ for ISCKKON Golden Avatar Productions in 1979 under the orchestration of L Subramaniam, a renowned violinist supported by Ustad Zakir Hussain on tabla. I feel that Lakshmi Shankar may have composed the tune herself. Later, sometime in the 1980s, she sang live on All India Radio/Doordarshan as part of the National Programme of Music. I personally like her live version because of the audio quality, the clarity of the words, the excellent tabla rhythm and the elaborations with which Lakshmi Shankar rendered the bhajan.

How could Lakshmi Shankar mesmerise her foreign audience with her bhajans? The answer is that she did with her emotive voice as evident in this bhajan.

O killer of the demon Mura who roams in the gardens, come near.
O Mādhava, who is the friend of those who bow upon, who destroyed Madhu, who is desirable, who is Keshva and who is the ocean of compassion, come near.

Hundreds of shiny bumble-bees are continuously buzzing in the gardens of [our] transcendental mellows. O You, who beyond the paths of material standards, come near. We all are craving for the sight of You, O Madhusoodana, who is calm.

O You, who holds a new lotus, who is dark in complexion, who is beautiful, who is decorated with chandrakusuma, who rules the heart of group of Gopī, who held Govardhana, who roams in Vrindaavana, who holds a flute, who is the supreme ruler.

O who gives pleasure to Rādhaa, who destroyed Kamsa, who is complete. I am bowing into Your feet which is the shelter of the unsheltered.
O Janaardana, who has yellow robes, come close to me in this garden.

15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).

“Angulimaal”(1960) was produced by M/s Prakash Veramal and directed by Vijay Bhatt for P V Films, Bombay. This historical movie had Nimmi, Bharat Bhushan, Anita Guha, Ulhas, Chandrashekhar, Achla Sachdev, Manmohan Krishn, Prem Adeeb, Kesri, Rammohan, Vinod Kumar, Sheela Kashmiri, Vimla, Helen etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details :-

Song Date of posting Singers Remarks
Aayi aayi basanti belaa 18 March 2011 Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Meena Kapoor
Dheere dheere dhal ri chanda ( 20 April 2011 Aarti Mukherjee
Bade aaye shikaari shikaar karne 5 May 2011 Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Jaa ri na bataaun main to naam chitchor kaa 6 May 2011 Lata Mangeshkar, Meena Kapoor
Mere chanchal naina madhur ras ke bhare 27 October 2018 Meena Kapoor
Buddham sharnam gachhaami 11 October 2020 Manna Dey Picturised as a Five part song

The eighth and final song from the movie is sung by a male voice and Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

The song is picturised on Manmohan Krishn and a lady who I guess is a young Achla Sachdev. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song including the identification of the lady. I feel that the male voice is that of Manmohan Krishn himself, who was an occasional singer as well.

With this song, all the songs of “Angulimaal”(1960) are now covered and the movie joins the lists of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

Welcome all to this post, which should have come yesterday. But as they say ‘it is better late than never’ and as we on the blog say ‘it is never too late (even if the post comes after a long gap (ranging from a week to a month) of a particular special day).
😊
In any case we will be having a song to enjoy, a look-back (or glance? 😊) on the yesteryears or a brief journey ‘down memory lane’ …

I will directly come to the point now and clear the suspense that yesterday 11th November’2020 was the eighty-fourth (born on 11.11.1936) birthday of the gorgeous, beautiful, (plus sober, decent?), cheerful, ever smiling and ‘chulbuli’ actress Mala Sinha.

On the blog we today belatedly wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I got to watch many of her movies from the ‘golden era’ or ‘black & white’ era and later many of her movies from the ‘colored’ era too. I am not going to list them all here because it will be a long list. I would only like to say that I do not remember any single movie of her ‘where I have not liked her performance’. I always like her screen presence and also her appearances in the songs or song sequences.

When I was looking for information about her initial career, I got to learn that she was an approved singer of ‘All India Radio’ but never got to playback singing in movies.
Ot of the twentythree Bangla movies she acted in, she was paired with Uttam Kumar in seven movies. Interested readers can visit for more interesting information on her on ‘wiki’ here.

On the occasion of her birthday I am going to present a song picturized on her from the movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’ which I came across recently. After listening to the song I totally fall in love with this song.

‘Rivaaj-1972’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Sona Films, Madras’. (This movie was dedicated to the memory of the great K. Asif)

It was presented by H. Prasann Chand Nahar. K.C. Bokadia was the producer of this movie.

It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar (the sub title for Sanjeev Kumar mentions ‘President award winner), Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Jr Mehmood, Baby Gauri and Zeb Rehman.
They were supported by Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Pandri Bai, Mukri, Mrs. Shaukat Kaifi Azmi, Raj Kishore, Swaraj Kumar, Subrato and others.

The story of this movie was written by R. Venkatachalam. Its dialogues were written by Kaifi Azmi.
Editing of this movie was done by R. Bhaskaran.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

The movie had eights songs (including a multiple version song) written by Kaifi Azmi, Indeevar, Hasrat Jaipuri, Anjaan, S.H. Bihari and Neeraj. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers for this movie.

Here is the list of the eight songs of this movie and the songs already posted have been added with their link;

Song Lyricist Posted On
Main teri prem deewaani meera Neeraj Being covered in this post
Tujh mein hoon main mujh mein hai tu S.H. Bihari 09.07.2013
Pyaara pyaara sabse nyaara aanewaala hai koyi hamaara Indeevar
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (male version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (female version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Lagey koi lottery yaa jackpot lagey Anjaan 30.01.2015
Jalaa do jalaa do jaalaa do duniya ko jalaa do Kaifi Azmi 06.11.2020
Phoolon sa mahka huaa ye reshmi tan mera Anjaan

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Mala Sinha where she is lip-syncing in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Sanjeev Kumar and many others are also seen in the picturization of the song which happens in a temple (the famous Meera temple of Udaipur, as mentioned in the ‘wiki’ page of this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972).

The beautiful lyrics for today’s song are by Neeraj ji.

When I listened to the song for first time around a week or ten days back, I was totally taken up by this song and fall in love with it. It grows upon us if we listen to it again and again.
This beautiful composition of Shankar-Jaikishan is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and I must say what I mentioned for Mala Sinha that I have never came across a single Suman Kalyanpur song which I had not liked and enjoyed.

With the song Suman Kalyanpur has now four hundred song on the blog. Still a long to go to cover her remaining songs. It is still below half way mark if we consider the total 857 songs sung by her in Hindi movies. Today happens to be the 4500th day for the blog. Suman Kalyanpur completing her 400th song in the blog on the 4500th day for the blog sounds quite a befitting occasion.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …
Ed note:-Moreover, this article is the 300th article for Avinash Scrapwala as a guest contributor in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 107 # Tribute to Sahir Ludhianvi #
——————————————————————————–

Today 25th October’2020 is the fortieth Remembrance Day of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. He was born on 08th March’1921 and that will mark hundred years of his stepping out on this planet earth.

Sahir Ludhianvi left this mortal world on 25th October’1980 due to heart attack when he was playing cards with his friends.

Today remembering Sahir Ludhianvi and paying him a tribute on the blog I am presenting a song penned by him for the ‘1977-movie- Jaagriti’. As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie was first titled as ‘Ajab Teri Sarkar’ and even its song records were released by this title. I think that affected one song of the movie which was supposed to be in four parts, but now only one of its parts is available.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore.

Jayshree T and Helen make special appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.03.1977.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle noted long back are ready with us, however I when I came across this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur I selected it for today’s presentation for ‘special’ reasons. It’s a song praising to almighty and sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I hope you will like the song too.

With today’s song this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ makes its debut of the blog (and also join the same titles of movies released in ‘1949’ & ‘1954’. There was one more movie with the same title released in ‘1992’.

With the today’s movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ making its debut on the blog, all movies where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for movies released from 1971-1980 are now represented on the blog.

I think this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ must be an obscure movie of its time and may be not seen by many. I would request knowledgeable reader who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie, its songs and artists in the movie.

let us now listen to today’s song …

On this day ten years ago viz on 8 September 2010, six songs from six movies were covered, as was the norm those days.

Here are the details of the six songs:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Aawaaz de kahaan hai duniyaa meri jawaan hai Anmol Ghadi-1946 All songs covered
Rahiye ab aisi jagah chal kar jahaan koi na ho Mirza Ghalib-1954 All songs covered

Except one movie, all other five movies, that got represented that day have been YIPPEED by now.

That leaves us with just “Ghoonghat”(1960) as the sole movie eligible for today’s blog Ten year challenge.

As many as six songs of “Ghoonghat”(1960) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Song Posted On
Laage naa moraa jiyaa 13.05.2009
Mori chham chham baaje paayaliyaa 14.05.2009
Kyaa kyaa nazaaren dikhaatin hai ankhiyaan 06.09.2009
Do nain milye do phool khiley 08.09.2010
Haay re insaan ki majbooriyaan 13.09.2010
Ye zindagi ka mausam aur ye samaa suhaanaa 24.03.2012

Here is a song from “Ghoonghat”(1960). This song is sung by Lata. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised on Bina Rai who is seen singing this bhajan in front of an idol of Lord Krishn. Though I consider my Hindi knowledge to be quite decent, I am stumped by this word “pat” in the lyrics. I request our nowledgeable readers to tel us the meaning of this word in the lyrics. Is this word in some way a synonym of “laaj” ?

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra and the blog ten year challenge details were sent by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.59
————————————————–

As was the wont those days ten years ago, six songs were discussed in the blog, in chronological order of their release. The first song, from 1951 was covered first and gradually the other songs were covered in chronological order. The first song was posted at 9 :12 AM and the sixth at 9:58. So by the then prevailing standards of the blog, I may have woken up late. 🙂

Here are the details of the six songs discussed on 26 August 2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Huye ham jinke liye barbaad Deedaar-1951 All songs covered
Laagi chhoote naa ab to sanam Kaali Topi Laal Roomaal-1959 All songs covered
Agar main poochhoon jawaab doge Shikaari-1963 All songs covered
Dilrubaa dil pe tu Rajkumar-1964 All songs covered
Saanchi kaho mose baalmaa Jawaani Mastaani-1972 03 songs posted
Deepak hai tu piyaa main teri jyoti Gaayatri Mahimaa-1977 Movie made its debut. 01 song posted so far

One can see that the first four movies have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So, that leaves us with just two movies that are eligible for the “Blog Ten Year Challenge” today.

“Gaayatri Mahimaa”(1977) made its debut in the blog ten years ago, and that remains the only song from the movie discussed in the blog, unlike songs of four other movies that got YIPPEED iduring the interim period. So, this slow progressing movie is a fit movie to be taken up for the “Blog Ten Year Challenge”. So here is the second song from the movie. This song is sung by Mukesh and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

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

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

Blog Day :

4390 Post No. : 15754

Today 25th July 2020 is being celebrated as Naag Panchami falling in this year ‘shraavan maas’ shukla paksh on Panchami. Greetings to all on this occasion which also marks the beginning of many upcoming festivals in our country.

For this occasion, I had earlier noted a movie falling under ‘movies with same titles’ to be presented with a song on the blog for today. However, when I checked that movie, I do not find a suitable song ‘praising naag devtaa’ in that movie (from seventies). Then I looked a new movie from the ‘seventies’ having ‘naag’ related titles so that it can make a ‘debut’ on the blog. But I could not find a suitable song in that movie too.

In our Hindi movies we have many mythological movies where ‘naag’ or ‘naag devtaa’ had an important role and many fantasy movies having the stories of ‘snakes’, ‘female snake revenge’ and or ‘snake charmers’. I thought to present a list of all such movies which have already been represented on the blog, but for now I have differed that for a separate post later in the future. In the process I came across this wonderful song from the 1963 movie ‘Naag Mohini’. I like this song very much and as I listened to it more and more it grows on me.

Today I am presenting this melodious song picturized on screen on Master Babloo who is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (yes, in those times, female singer’s voice would be the voice of a small child in songs 🙂 ).

“Naag Mohini-1963”, a mythological movie, was directed by Shantilal Soni for ‘Dimple Film, Bombay’. It has Vijaya Choudhary, Mahipal, Sunder, Rajan Haksar, Master Babloo, Uma Dutt, Indra Bansal, Rajrani, Sood and Khurshid. This movie has six songs written by Bharat Vyas and music is composed by Sardar Malik. Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices in the songs of this movie.

So far three songs from this movie ‘Naag Mohini-1963’ have been posted on the blog. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy this wondrous song and the cute performance on the song by Master Babloo. . .

As mentioned above the song is in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur, lyrics are by Bharat Vyas and music composed by Sardar Malik.

आजा आजा तुझे
कब से बुलाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से ए बुलाऊं मैं

तेरे फन पे झूल रही है
कब से दुनिया सारी
छोटी सी ये बात मेरी
क्या तुझे पड़ेगी भारी
तेरे फन पे झूल रही है
कब से दुनिया सारी
छोटी सी ये बात मेरी
क्या तुझे पड़ेगी भारी
भक्तों को देता अमृत
और कहलाता विषधारी
सबकी बिगड़ी बात बना दी
आज है मेरी बारी
तू सुन नागराज
खाली ले के झोली आज
नहीं जाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से बुलाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से ए बुलाऊं मैं

नाग देवता तेरा रूप है
जैसे धूप और छाया
किसी ने जो फुंकार सही
तो प्यार उसी ने पाया
नाग देवता तेरा रूप है
जैसे धूप और छाया
किसीने जो फुंकार सही
तो प्यार उसी ने पाया
मैं अनाथ सा फिरूं भटकता
किसी ने ना अपनाया
आज प्राण कि भीख मांगने
द्वार पे तेरे आया
दुखियारा हूँ मैं दीन
तेरी भक्ति कि बीन बजाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से बुलाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से ए बुलाऊं मैं

फन वाले महाराज
मेरी रखना तू लाज
गुण गाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से बुलाऊं मैं
आजा आजा तुझे
कब से बुलाऊं मैं

आजा आ
आजा आ

आजा आ
आजा आ

आजा आ. . .

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 98#
——————————————-

Today 24th July 2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary of actor, producer, director, writer and lyricist Manoj Kumar. He was born as Harikishan Giri Goswami on 24th July 1937 in Abbottabad (then in North-West frontier province of British India and now in Pakistan).

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’.

My discussion on ‘songs of seventies that brings back memories’ and songs those are purely ‘nostalgic’ for me is incomplete unless I discuss this song here on the blog. I was longing to see this song on the blog ever since I start as a ‘lyrics contributor’ to this blog.

In my growing years this song ‘Shirdi waale Sai baba aaya tere dar pe sawaali’ qas a hugely poppular song. There were other Sai Baba related songs too that were frequently heard on loudspeakers and on radio. This song from ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ and today’s song from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ came in the same year i.e. ‘1977’.
(The above song from ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ has already been posted on the blog.)

Both songs have the voice of Rafi Saab and his singing made both these songs more divine and soulful.

‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Sai Shyam Movies’. It was presented by Manoj Kumar and Sai devotees. And the movie was produced by ‘Sarla Charities Trust’.

Pandurang Dixit was the was co-director and production controller of this movie.

Anil Ahuja and Diwan Arora were the chief assistant directors of this movie.

It had Sudheer Dalavi as ‘Sai Baba’, with Manmohan Krishna, Shrikant Moghe, Raj Mehra, B.M. Vyas, Birbal, Preetam Beli, Chanda, Vatsala Deshkmukh, Ratnamala, Suman Dharmadhikari, Jyotsana Kirpekar, Bhavna, Nazeer Kashmiri, C.S. Dubey, Master Titu, Master Raju. It also had Usha Chavan, ‘Laxman’ Chawla, Kumari Mahalaxami and Sai devotees in special appearance. And also making special appearance in the movie were Rajendra Kumar, Prem Nath, Hema Malini, Shagtrughan Sinha and Manoj Kumar, Madan Puri, Sachin, Kishan Dhawan, Paintal, Dheeraj, Satish, Kuljeet.

This movie was based on Govindrao Dabholkar’s ‘Sri Sai Satcharitra’ and experiences of devotees of Saibaba. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Manoj Kumar.

Dev Kishan wrote the story of this movie and was also the associate writer of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by V. V. Kamat. Audiography for this movie was done by Raghuvir Date while art direction was done by Kanu Desai. Special effects were by Dahyabhai.

This movie had nine songs in it written by Manoj Kumar, Pandurang Dixit and Dev Kishan. Music for this movie was composed by Pandurang Dixit. Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Jani Babu, Anoop Jalota, Anuradha and Dilraj Kaur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.02.1977.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my younger brothers and cousins at Akola then. Also, I think the movie was given a ‘tax free’ status then.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar and on the screen, it is lip synced by Shatrughan Sinha and Master Titu respectively. Also seen in the picturization of the song are Sudheer Dalavi and many others.

Music for this song is composed by Pandurang Dixit.

And lyrics of this song are written by the versatile Manoj Kumar. As a ‘lyricist’ he makes a debut on the blog today.

He has written lyrics for the songs in few other movies viz.’Kranti-1981’,’Kalaakaar-1983’, ‘Painter Babu-1983’, ‘Kalyug Aur Ramayan-1987’, ‘Clerk-1989’, ‘Santosh-1989’ etc. The list of songs written by him needs to be compiled and authenticated for presentation in details which we can do in future posts coming on the blog.

For ‘movie-goers’ and ‘movie-watchers’😊 who grow in the seventies the movies of Manoj Kumar always have a ‘special place’ and part of our ‘nostalgia’ of those beautiful years. And yes, we are going to have more write-ups on him coming on the blog in future. 😊

Today on his birth anniversary we wish Manoj Kumar a ‘very happy birthday’ and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Let us now listen to today’s beautiful song … I like this song very much and hope you will like it too. …
