Hullo atuldom

Hope all fine here.

Today (8 june 2017) I am posting a song which falls right in the category of “How come this is not yet posted?!?!” But that is how this blog of ours (Atul’s) is. Even after 13300 songs we still have songs for the “How come” category.

The first time I saw this film, it was on Doordarshan, and the only song that I could appreciate (given my age) was “Bibi Mendaki Ri Tu To Paani Mein Ki Raani”. Rest of the film, its emotional and familial nuances were all lost on me. Those were the days, when watching television was a privilege bestowed upon oneself by a friendly neighbor. One would go to watch television at a neighbor’s home, or hang on to the windows, if entry was not permitted. And so, the opportunity that one gets to watch a movie was in itself a treat, and an accomplishment. And one always wanted to make the most of such opportunities. Getting bored was not only not an option, but it was a thought furthest from the mind. I have this placement in front of a TV screen, and I will watch it for as long as I am allowed, whatever may be the content. The serious stuff was mostly OHT (Overhead Transmission), and the mind would remember and register the fun parts like Balraj Sahni having poori and lassi at a halwai shop in the morning before reaching his office, or singing this above mentioned song with his children on the Sunday when he is at home. But as far as watching time is concerned, it was to be religiously spent, to watch the entire film, whether I could make out more of it or not.

I had never heard the name of Hindi film BAABLA (1953) until one of the film’s songs raat ke raahi thhak mat jaana was posted on this blog a few months back. The information about this film on the internet is scanty. The director/s and the most of actors of the film appear to be from Bengali film industry. As per IMDB, the film had two directors – N B Agrami and Bibhuti Laha, the latter also was the Cinematographer for the film. The cast of the film included Paresh Banerjee, Manju Dey, Hiralal, Master Niren, Pahadi Sanyal, Sova Sen etc. The film was produced under the banner of M P Productions which had earlier produced films like ‘Jawaab’ (1942), ‘Hospital’ (1943), ‘Tum Aur Main’ (1947) etc.

While surfing on the internet last night, I came across a reference to the book ‘The Tenth Rasa : An Anthology of Indian Nonsense’ (2007). The title of the book evoked interest in me but there was no way to know in what context the word ‘nonsense’ was used. I could not locate an E-version or abridged version of this book on the internet but found a review of this book. The book is all about Indian nonsensel literature – prose, poetry, jingles which has a rich history in oral and folk forms. Most of them have been passed on to the next generation by words of mouth. It is a nonsense literature from the point of view of laureates belonging to the elite society for whom the literature has to be meaningful. In that way, the term ‘nonsense’ seems to have been used for meaningless literature. According to the authors of this book, nonsense literature is the base for sensible literature as the former is intuitive and flows quite naturally like the relationship between mother and child.

Until 1970, I was only aware of old Hindi film songs from popular films like ‘Mahal’ (1949), ‘Barsaat’ (1949),’Malhar’ (1951),’Baiju Bawara’ (1952), ‘Ashiana’ (1952), ‘Patita’ (1953), ‘Anarkali’ (1953), ‘Seema’ (1955) and many more of such films. It was only when I was initiated by a friend into some lesser known gems from the films which I have never heard of, my interest in such songs grew. My friend used to arrange periodic meetings of like minded persons, mostly in his house. He had a mind boggling collections of such songs in 78 RPM gramophone records ( I guess, it was nearly 1000 in numbers). He had also had some audio cassettes containing lesser known songs recorded from Radio Ceylon and also from 78 RPM records held by some of his friends. During those meetings, he would select some rare songs and play on his Gerard record changer attached to his radiogram followed by discussions. Since I was a novice in this segment of old Hindi film songs, I was only a listener to those discussions. Later, I became aware of the fact that behind tha facade of popular old Hindi film songs, there exists a big store of lesser known jewels.
