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.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 7
——————————————————————–

Sudhir ji, got in touch with us Atulwaasis and told us that there is a HUGE milestone coming up on the blog.

I had no clue that it was this huge. With my little knowledge of maths, I did some calculation and it works to an average of around 3 posts a day for the last 9 years. If that just seems like a number to you – you either do not understand hard work when you see it, or you are just a passer by seeing this blog for the first time.

While I still wonder how it is even possible to have such commitment and endurance I am reminded of what Atul ji often tells us – this is a “Labour of Love”. And then it all falls in place and makes so much sense. Atul ji has been a beacon of light, a guru, a nostalgia maker, the man who got all us crazy Atulwaasis together.

“Majboor” (1974) was the first movie with this title that I became aware of. Later I came to know that movies wit the same title were released in 1948 and 1964 as well.

Raksha bandhan comes in the festive month of Shravan. This year it is on 29th August 2015. Wishing all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the eighth time we are celebrating it on our blog. Does that mean we have run out of Raksha Bandhan songs to be posted? Actually if we take a look at the list on the right side of our blog –the list which breaks up the blog category wise— we find 21 Rakhi songs have been posted beginning with the all-time universal favourite “Bhaiyya Mere Rakhi Ke Bandhan Ko Nibhana” from the 1959 “Chhoti Behan”. The last song in this category was in 2013 by Sudhirji “pardesi ho humse rakhiya bandha” from a 1944 movie.

So now we are into the festival season in India. Post 15th August, the month of Sharavan in the Hindu calendar, we get one festival after the other. This year Raksha Bandhan is the first. In Maharashtra the Kolis celebrate it as Nariyal Poornima. They normally set out for fishing after this festival and offer Pooja to the Sea gods. There is normally no fishing during the rainy season along the coast of Maharashtra.

Jagdeep and Nanda played lovebirds in “Bhaabhi” (1957). Two years later, they play brother and sister in “Barkha” (1959).

Both these movies had another thing in common, viz lyrics by Rajinder Krishan and music by Chitragupta. Jagdeep had got a song to sing in “Bhaabhi” (1957), namely Chali chali re patang meri chali re. Here in “Barkha” (1959), we find Jagdeep and Nanda singing a bhai-bahan duet as they are travelling in 1950s style, viz on a bullock cart. 🙂

“Bandhan” (19408), though over seven decades old has songs that sound fresh and contemporary to me even to this date. And for that one has to admire the creators of these songs who created such timeless classic.
