Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

As I have said in my post last year, the first Sunday of August is celebrated in many parts of the world as Friendship day. All the proverbs or sayings connected with Friends and Friendship come rushing to the mind viz. “a friend in need is a friend indeed”; “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”; “every gift from your friend is a wish for your happiness”; “a friends’ eye is like a good mirror”; etc.

At the same time I can recollect numerous songs from Bollywood connected with friendship and friends like “doston se pyaar kiya dushmanon se badle liya” (which subsequently Usha Uthup used to sing as “doston se pyaar kiya dushmano se bahut pyaar kiya” in all her concerts); “ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai”; and the most popular of them all- “ye dosti hum nahin todenge”.

It is really fortunate to have friends on whom one can rely. It is an experience where in, one can just pick up the phone and begin talking as if there was no break in the one-to-one interaction, or any lapse of time in between one meeting or chat and another. And I must say I experienced it. So much so, that around the beginning of June a few friends of mine from my college days decided to meet up at the place of one amongst us and spend a few days together.

Much like the gangout that I had with my blog friends in April end. That gangout was decided at short notice, even the venue changed from Guruji’s place to Kamathji’s place as Guruji had to urgently rush out of Mumbai. It was a hangout that fell in place as Sudhirji intimated that he will be in Mumbai at that time with Bakshishji for company, for almost a week. And I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of meeting the two of them, and made it aware that I will have only a few hours at my disposal before catching my return bus to Bangalore. And the hangout happened with Bharatji, Sudhirji, Bakshishji and Nitinji.

We had a very gracious and efficient host in Kamathji and his family. I simply loved the attention they gave us. Nitinji and Bharatji had already arrived when I reached the venue and then the bell rang. We all expected it to be the Dilliwales but it turned to be our ever-smiling IN-HOUSE ENCYCLOPAEDIA. That was the best surprise that could have been sprung on the gang as we were without information about his location. And the sweet/ cute person that he is, he decided to meet us as soon as he landed in Mumbai – just that morning. Then the Dilliwales walked in and we had quorum so to speak. We managed to spend a joyful time where Sudhirji and Bakshishji spoke of their time well-spent over the last two days doing what we all enjoy- listening to music.

So, when birds of the same feather flock together there is a whole lot of Music, Masti And Magic. (this last 3 Ms is the slogan of one of the many music channels on satellite television). Like it happened when I met my gang of college friends in the heart of summer and the country reeling under temperatures of 40-49 degrees Celsius. But that didn’t stop us from getting out into the sun and seeing a part of the country which we had never visited. And when it got too hot, we just whiled away the time in the comfort of the air-conditioned room, talking of old times and catching up on 30 years of gossip, with platefuls of snacks and mugs full of tea/ coffee. Yes, I had met a particular friend after that many years but we never felt that it was that long back. There was no awkwardness. That is what friends and friendship is about I suppose.

We have numerous Hindi film songs where gangs of girl friends pick up their cycles and go about singing like Saira Banu did in Padosan or Nutan did in Anaari and Chhaliya. Heroes are no different and we have seen Rajendra Kumar in Aas Ka Panchchi; Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan with their group of friends in Aap Ke Deewane etc. But our movie stars also sing along with their friends in open topped cars and jeeps and we end up having songs like “chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de”; “Manubhai motor chale pom pom pom”.

Now there is a similarity in the two open topped car songs that I have mentioned. Though the two songs are 24 years apart, and they show the heroes frolicking about they are singing in the same voice. That of Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar who would have been 90 today. Unbelievable!!! But then we are not fortunate to have him amongst us. We are fortunate that we have his songs- songs that tickle us into laughter, bring a smile to our lips, nudge us out of bad moods. And we are grateful to lord almighty for this singer, actor, producer, director and music composer who lived amongst us mortals. Whose friendship with Dev Anand, RD Burman, Rajesh Khanna etc is well known. His voice was instrumental in shaping the careers of many actors till Anil Kapoor, Sunjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav etc.

Today’s song is from the 1978 Surinder Kapoor produced, Sikandar Khanna directed “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which starred Rishi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee in lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Ranjeet, Helen, Paintal Mukri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo etc. Mithun Chakravarthy played one of Rishi Kapoor’s many friends in the movie. The songs were written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music composers.

I have seen this movie years ago but the story of the movie as given on IMDB.com is as follows (and is accurate I must say) —
Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, shall not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marries a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

From the above story it is evident that friends can make or break one’s life. There is a line in the other song that I have mentioned above

“chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de” which is how friendships should be

“baant kar jo khaaye us pe apne jaan-o-dil lutaa
jo bachaaye maal us ko jooti’on ka haar de”

Let your heart and your life be beholden
For a buddy who shares his food with you
But for him, who scrimps and keeps safe his things
Be sure to present him with a garland of shoes”

-this I have copy pasted from the post that Sudhirji had written for the song.

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

Blog Day :

4018 Post No. : 15128

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 40
——————————————————————————————

Hullo to Atuldom

Today is a unique happy birthday date. It is not any celebrity’s birthday. It is the birthdate of our beloved blog Atul-song-a-day which has been nicknamed ASAD and all of its followers are called Atulites.

This is one blog which has brought together a lot of Hindi film music lovers from across the world. It must have started as a one-man’s passion for film music but has now become an addiction for a set of music lovers who are equally passionate about Hindi film music. People who have associated themselves with the blog are going to great lengths to find hitherto unheard songs, finding about the life-stories of those associated with those songs etc. We have our own in-house encyclopaedia who has put a lot of time into researching about long forgotten artists, singers, musicians, and also cleared confusion about artist who had same or similar names and were popular about the same period etc. We have an NRA (Non Resident Atulite) who has assigned Sudhir ji a job of finding movies of the 60s’ decade that were lost or forgotten and Sudhir ji has done a great job of finding at least 112 such movies with about 79 left and these may be really unavailable otherwise he would have dug them out too. In addition to this, he has an ongoing series of songs which were reused in movies and I am sure that will give us a minimum of 50 songs.

Sudhir ji and Arunkumar ji (the encyclopaedia) are just two examples of dedicated contributors. We have others whose craze for Hindi film music has been manifested in the form of reading through the “ancient” 😉 issues of Film-India magazine and sharing knowledge gathered from there with us on the blog. Then there is the case of two resident NRAs who collaborate to produce posts to remember their favourite Sahir on his birth and death anniversaries. Of course, one NRA is more active than the other who I expect will surface in the last week of July as the anniversary of his and our favourite Mohd. Rafi is coming up and his activity will continue on to first week of August. (Hope I am not proved wrong) Of course there are those contributors who surface on the really important celebratory occasion of the blogs’ 15000th post, Atulji’s personal 10000, and birthdays of their personal favourite singers Mukesh, Shamshad Begum etc. I must make special mention of the behind the scene contributor who sees to it that the links of songs posted are working links in addition to sending his farmaishes in the form of lyrics.  So Atuldom is a kingdom of a group with varied interests in HFM and who have their own way of making the blog a unique space in cyberland.

As far as my own film music addiction is concerned, I have mentioned many a times how this blog has affected my way of listening to songs. How I have learnt about the life and times of the singers, actors, music directors, and others associated with movie making. And the most important take-away from this blog is a whole new set of friends who are always in touch 24/7 and who receive my phone-calls with a smile (I can feel it in their “Hello”). But I had an altogether different experience the last time I called Sudhir ji; my “hullo Sudhir ji” was met by a good two minute of laughter, such is the camaraderie that he knew exactly what I was going to say. 😊

For all of the above a big thank you to the blog and the blog master Atul. It is only because Atul ji started the blog on 19th July 2008 that we can call ourselves Atulites or Atulwaasis, who are residents of Atuldom.

Exactly a year after it was born, Atulji posted six songs on 19th July 2009. These represented six movies: two from 1969, and one each of 1956, 1954, 1953 and 1949. Of the movies that these songs were from only one is left to be yyippeed!! That is ‘Sambandh’ of 1969. It has 5 songs posted on the blog, out of a possible 11 or 12 , the last being posted in October of 2011. That is a loooong time ago.

So, to take ‘Sambandh’ a step forward we re-visit it today. The movie was produced by Ram Mukherjee; directed by Ajoy Biswas; had Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar for playback singers for songs written by Kavi Pradeep and composed by OP Nayyar. Atul ji has said in one of the previous posts of the songs of this movie that this was an unusual combination- OP Nayyar setting Kavi Pradeep’s words to tune. This movie had Pradeep Kumar and Deb Mukherjee heading the cast which also had Anjana (this was her debut) Sulochana Latkar, Anita Dutt (looks like Anita Guha, must have been Dutt at that time), Achala Sachdev, Vijaya Chaudhary, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Leela Mishra, etc.

The synopsis as given on IMDB is:

Manav Chatterjee’s childhood is spent in a wealthy home where his father, Umakant, is an alcoholic, and his mother a simple housewife, who tries in vain to get his dad to give up on alcohol. This results in differences between his parents, leading to their separation, and him leaving the house to be with his mother. Manav grows up as a cynic, and this cynicism increases when he goes to live with a foster and a very wealthy family. He marries Hiralal’s daughter, Sandhya, and both love each other deeply. But things do not seem to go Manav’s way at all, as he is separated from Sandhya, and after several months finds out that Hirala is about to get Sandhya married – again. Now Manav has changed his name, and is being helped by an unknowing Umakant to try and salvage, what possibly remains, of the rest of this bitter and lonely life.

Here is the list of songs posted this-date-that-year as is the practice in the Ten-Year Challenge,

Gore Gore Mukhde Pe Gesoo Jo Chhaa Gaye Patanga

1949

Bujh Gaye Aasha Ke Diye…Badle Rang Jahaan Ke Shikast

1953

Dil Se Milaa Ke Dil Pyaar Kijiye Taxi Driver

1954

Dil Dil Se Milaakar Dekho Mem Sahib

1956

Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche Sambandh

1969

Saathiyaan Nahin Jaana Ke Ji Na Lage Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke

1969

Hindigeetmala.net (my personal HFGK) lists 12 songs for ‘Sambandh’ of which we have 5 on the blog. Of the twelve, six songs have Asha Bhonsle giving playback, one being a duet with Hemant Kumar. It is difficult to find videos of all the songs that are left to be posted, only audios are available on youtube. Another thing I found was almost all the songs were rather sombre or completely sad. Would love to see the movie to understand why the mood of the songs are so.  And as Atul ji has previously said this is a rather unusual OP Nayyar album with not one peppy number. So, choosing from what is available, here is the Hemant Kumar – Asha song which is a prayer and I would like to know on whom it was filmed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASAD!!!!!
Thank you Atul ji for giving us ASAD.

There is still a lot of songs left in the ocean of HFM for us to find gems, pearls and corals.

P.S. after writing the post I ran through the movie to see who has lip synced the song. I found that the Hemant Kumar part is no where in the movie and Anita Dutt has lip-synced the Asha Bhonsle part.

Editor’s note-With this song, Hemant Kumar completes 200 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

हे जगत पिता परमात्मा
करो निर्मल मेरी आत्मा
दुख हरो दयालु

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में

मिलते हैं किसी को बिन मांगे ही मोती
ओ ओ ओ
कोई मांगे भी तो भीख नसीब ना होती
ओ ओ ओ
क्या सोच के है मालिक ने रची
ये दो रंगी तस्वीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

कुछ किस्मत वाले सुख से अमृत पीते
ओ ओ ओ
कुछ दिल पर रख कर पत्थर जीवन जीते
ओ ओ ओ
कहीं मन पंछी आकाश उड़े
कहीं पाँव पड़ी ज़ंजीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

Blog Day :

4000 Post No. : 15100

Today (1 july 2019) happens to be the first day of the month (pehli taareekh). People today arev no longer as happy and bullish about pehli taareekh as they were till a few decades back, nevertheless it remains an important day for people.

This time, it happens to be monday, the first working day as well. 😉 It is as if one is beginning a new month with a clean slate, with the first working day of the week. 🙂 There are people who dread mondays. I am sure regulars of this blog are not among such people. 🙂

This day happens to be quite an important day for the blog as well. Today is the 4000th day for this blog ! 4000 days of continous vibrant existence, with posts almost every day !

Out of 4000 days, there have been 217 dot days (5.4 % days) when no posts were published, otherwise there have been posts everyday on 3783 days (94.6 %) out of these 4000 days !

The peak daily strike rate of this blog was 4.626 posts a day on 1902th day of the blog on 2 october 2013 when 8800th post was posted. Those were the days when covering six songs in a day was considered normal in the blog. The strike rate began to fall from 2015 onwards and today on the 4000th day of the blog we are on 15100 only !

Did I say post number 15100 ? Yes, I did. Today on the 4000th day of the blog, we reach another century post, namely post number 15100 in the blog.

Many of our writeup contents, like our strike rate of posts have dried up as well, nevertheless we still summon enough creative juices for special occasions. Blog century post is one such special occasion.

This writeup is a labour of love (a favourite phrase for this blog) and it covers a topic that I wanted to cover on 5 june 2015, which was world environment day. Though I had considerable data on this topic, I was not able to convert all that data into useful and interesting information in the limited time that I could summon by that date. So I decided that this topic would be covered while discussing post number 15100. I discussed the matter with Sudhir Jee and requested him to find a suitable song. Finally we zeroed in on a song that is quite appropriate and suitable for the occasion as well as the topic being discussed in the song.

The topic of this writeup is environment. This writeup covers a man who has singlehandedly performed a Herculean task ( भगीरथ प्रयास) in the area of environment.

Who is this man and what he has done ?

Jitu Kalita, a Jorhat-based journalist who writes a popular column on nature in Prantik, an Assamese magazine, was stalking vultures when he found himself on the far side of Aruna sapori (sapori is the Assamese word for island), entering a forest, when a visibly perturbed tribal man practically attacked him and chased him off the land.

Later, Jitu Kalita managed to pacify the man and he convinced him that he was a journalist and not a poacher as apprehended by the tribal man. It was then that the tribal man, named Jadav Payeng, gradually opened up to Jitu Kalita and Jitu Kalita had the biggest news scoop of his career.

He is a man called Jadav “Molai” Payeng, a native of Assam. A man in his late 50s, he is an ordinary man who lives in a village near Jorhat (Assam). A tribal man of Mising tribe of Assam, he makes his living by milking his cattles and selling their milk.

When he was young, he lived with his parents and family is an island on River Brahamputra, near a small town called Kokilamukh located on south bank of the river.

In 1965, there was a big flood and that devastated the island (called Kartic sapori or Aruna sapori). Jadav Payeng’s family decided to move to another island to the north, namely Majuli island (which incidentally is the biggest river island in the world).

Before relocating, acute poverty compelled his parents to leave five-year-old Jadav in the care of Anil Borthakur, a court-master at the District Judge Court in Jorhat, who looked after his schooling.

In 1979, after he had appeared for his matriculation examination in a Jorhat School, Jadav Payeng visited his native place during summer season. What he saw there devastated him. He saw hundreds of dead snakes or the dry and hot sands. These snakes, which were washed ashore that island during rainy season, had died in summer because there was no vegetation growing in the sands that could protect and nurture these snakes. Jadav Payeng was heart broken. If snakes could die like this, then in future humans can likewise die if there is no vegetation to protect and nurture them- he thought. And he resolved to do something about that.

He approached forest department (where he had worked as a labourer in their project of afforestation), but they refused to help him and stated that it was not possible to do what he wanted.

Jadav Payeng asked the elders who lived in that area about some suitable vegetations that could be grown there. They advised him to grow world’s tallest grass. Initially confused, he later came to know that they described bamboo as world’s tallest grass. They also provided him some seeds.

Jadav Payeng began to plant seeds regularly from that day in 1979. Initially it was bamboo, and later, when Bamboo trees formed a decent enough self sustaining vegetation, he began to plant other variety of seeds as well.

Jada Payeng kept on and on for more than three decades unsung, unknown, unheralded. He obviously had genuine passion for the task that he could go on and on singlehandedly for this long without any support.

It was only thanks to the chance discovery by nature photographer Jitu Kalita that people came to know about this forest which was grown singlehandedly by one man.

This forest became so large and so thick that wild animals like Elephants (from Dibrugarh), Rhinos (from Kaziranga) and tigers (from Karbi anglong) found their way into his forest.

This jungle was named Mulai kathoni (Mulai jungle) by the local people, where Mulai was his nickname.

Jadav Payeng had built his tribal style home (known as Changghar – house on stilts in the Mising style) in the jungle where he lived with his family (wife and three kids). When the herd of elephants first arrived in the jingle in 2008, they overran his home.

He stood and watched from a distance and realised the magnitude of what he had done. While the others watched on, baffled, he was overcome with joy. And he had every reason to be – he has succeeded in bringing life (that too wildlife) back to the island.

But his celebrations were short-lived. A few days later, angry villagers, having assessed the damage to their crops, blamed Mulai Kathoni for attracting the elephants. One mob manifested their anger by cutting down trees while another set fire to a patch at the far end. He reckons he lost one tenth of the forest in that first wave of mindless violence.

Fortunately, things calmed down since. The forest department too realised that wild elephants had gone to this “new” jungle that they knew nothing about till then. The ex-gratia payment for damaged crops offered by the Forest Department, the media attention and accolades bestowed on Payeng helped in suppressing the rage of the villagers.

What was empty sandbar had transformed into a full fledged jungle spread over 1360 acres (550 hectares). The forest now had around 5000 trees of over 100 different species, all singlehandedly planted by him. The vegetation included shimloo, shishoo, bhelo, gamari, segun, jamun, aam, kathol, shirish, dimolu, kohee, koroi, arjuna, amla, kadam, krishnasure, aizar, two types of neem, bagori etc (all local names). Most he planted himself; others grew from the seeds dispersed by winds, birds and the Brahmaputra. The forest now had fullfledged fauna consisting of Elephants, tigers, rhinos , deers, monkeys, rabbits, vultures and other birds etc !

Central Park in Manhattan in New York, a famous man made jungle is spread over 843 acres (341 hectares). It was created thanks to the efforts of many men and machinery.

If Central Park is larger than countries of Monaco(202 hectares) and Vatican city (44 hectares), then this forest (now called mulai kathonibari or Mulai forest) is larger than Gibralter (area 680 hectares) of Great Britain and comparable to area cocos island of Australia (1373 hectares).

Jadav Payeng’s fame spread slowly. Initially it was confined to local media. From 2012 till 2015, he became known mainly among academic circles and he was honoured by JNU (2012) where he was hailed as Forest Man of India. In 2013, he was honoured by Indian Institute of Forest Management.

Earlier, only people have access to corridors of power used to get government awards. Now a days, public are being encouraged to nominate people for such awards. That is how many unknown and unsung people are being recognised these days. That is how someone recommended his name for Padmshree Award and he received Padmshree Award at the hands of President Pranob Mukherji in 2015.

The Padmshree recognition caught the eyes of media and gave him world wide recognition. Many TV channels of various languages have visited him and have featured him in their TV programs. Even International media have covered him. He began to be called nationwide and even abroad to attend seminars and conferences.

Though a school drop out, he has vast knowledge about nature and he talks like an environmentalists that he actually is. He has knowledge which many theoretical environmentalists may not be aware of. For instance, he knows that Rhinos, Elephants and ungulates prefer to eat three different kinds of grasses. He is not familar with the English or scientific names of these grasses though.

He gets invited all over India and also abroad. wherever he goes, he is on the lookout for seeds of plants, which he keeps in his pocket. He manages to bring all these seeds with him to his native place in Assam and then plants them in the forest.

All this fame and recognition has not changed him. he is the same humble person that he was earlier. He did all this not for awards, but because he strongly believed in the cause. That is how he could go about this tast unrecognised and unsung for three decades.

Though not formally educated, he is an environmentalist at heart. He insists that Environment schience should be made compulsory in primary schools. Every kid, when he starts schooling should be given two saplings. He should be responsible for their care. By the time he leaves school some one decade later, his two plants would be full fledged trees. As for senior people not in school, they should plant one plant and nurture it. That way everyone of us would ensure our continued survival in earth.

“Man is responsible for the well-being of all animals and birds in this world,” Payeng explains. “If man does not take care of all animals, who will?”

Jadav Payeng lived in his hut in his jungle till 2011. Then he moved to “mainland”, namely a village called Eklong Mising Gaon near Kokilamukh in Jorhat in 2011, mainly to take care of the schooling needs of his three children.

He still goes to his jungle regularly from his “mainland” home, which involves walk on foot for a few kilimeters, followed by a treacherous boat ride over a stream of River Brahmputra, then walk of a few kilometeres, then another boat ride in another treacherous stream of river Brahmputra, and finally a trek of several kilometers before he reaches his jungle. Then the same trek back home.

To appreciate the logistics, I have provided the google earth image of his forest. One can also see the vastness of the river. As mentioned above, this small island is larger than some small nations of the world. The jungle grown by Jadav Payeng itself is larger than the smallest nations of the world.

Island in River Brahmpurta with Mulai forest
———————————————

Bird’s eye view, with River Brahmputra seen- See how wide is the river. The area to the north of mulai forest is Majuli island.
——————————————————————————————————————————–

It gives me great pleasure to introduce Jadav Payeng, the great self made environmentalist of India. What he singlehandedly achieved despite absolute lack of resources, encouragement and guidance is simply astonishng and out of the world. I am happy that his efforts were finally recognised, even if it took more than three decades.

I hope that we will not just pay lip service to his contributions, but that we will actually try and do out sincere bit for nature and environment.

The song that accompanies this writeup talks about the effects of hot weather as well. So pretty lady- Helen, who else, beseeches her beau to take her to Shimla, seeing how hot it is in the city. Let us grow more threes, so the temperatures in our cities remain under control. Else, even hill cities where people like to go to during summer will become as hot as plain during summer season. We are already witnessing this.

This song is from “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh” (1962). The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

On the occasion to 15100th song on 4000th day of the blog, I thank one and all for their continued support and well wishes. We have access to much better support from our fellow music lovers, much better support than what Jadav Payeng enjoyed, so I hope that we will be able to keep our musical bandwagon rolling on and on for as many years as possible.

(Cricket related memories & statistics #1)

During the 15k celebrations on our blog, our beloved Rajaji in his post – ‘Dil To Maane Naa, while congratulating all and wishing that this ‘musical journey’ just goes on and on … mentioned about the next target ‘15921’…!!! Now everyone was thinking of this ‘15921’? But it took Rajaji himself to give some hint and then it was disclosed to everyone. The figure was related to ‘Cricket Statistics’.

At that time, I had decided an article but as I progressed with the selection of the song and finally getting delayed with the article, I decided to do two articles first about the statistics part of my journey on the blog and the second one about my cricket related memories. So, here is the first article being posted today…

The reason for Rajaji’s mentioning of 15921 was Sachin’s runs scored in test cricket and after 15k we should look forward to this new target. This post of mine is too related to statistics but not of cricket though given by the Cricket World Cup around, statistics do also trigger some beautiful memories. However here I am looking for my own statistics on the blog and taking a look on how it has been for me so far on the blog.

My first lyrics contribution ‘Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe Dekho Kaisa Milaa’ was posted on the blog on 13.09.2012 which was 1518th day for the blog and this was the 6633rd post on the blog. I tried my first article for the blog in Feb’2013 and it was posted on 26.02.2013.  This was 1684th day for the blog and this post was the 7565th post. (The song covered in this post was ‘Sang Mere Nikley Thhe Saajan’ from ‘Phir Wahi Raat (1980).

After that it took me 752 days to reach my twenty-fifth post on 20.03.2015 – ‘Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film and that was 2436th day for the blog. It was the 10962nd post on the blog.

I feel very happy on my ‘quarter century’ and it reminded me of my favourite commentator Sushil Doshi’s words – “aur isi ke saath ye (Dilip Vengsarkar ki) quarter century poori”. . . (I don’t know why but I mostly remember ‘quarter century’ with Sushil Doshi’s commentary is for Dilip Vengsarkar. May be because whenever Vengsarkar was coming to bat he would easily score his first twenty-five runs very quickly 🙂 .

After that I was slowly getting into regular writing of articles for the blog. So, I reached my fiftieth post on 05.09.2015 with – ‘Krishna Krishna Bolo Krishna which was 2604th day and 11385th post for the blog. I entered the nineties on 31.07.2016 and it was 12280th post on the blog and the blog had become 2935 days older then.

Nineties mein aane ke baad, while I was eager to get to my first hundred, on the other side I was constantly remembering Chetan Chauhan one of my most favourite cricketer who never reach a hundred in test cricket, though me and many of friends were always praying for him, and always sincerely wished that he should get a hundred on his name. Well, it took me eighty-two days to reach from ninety to hundred. This was on 21.10.2016, and the song covered was ‘Bade Dinon Mein Khushi Ka Din Aaya’ (very appropriately though) and it was 3017th day for the blog, 12475th post of the blog.

Cricket mein century banaane ke baad jitni khushi ek batsman ko hoti hogi utni hi khushi mujhe bhi huyi 🙂 . By the time I completed my hundred posts on the blog, in the other category that is ‘lyrics contribution’ I had already scored over three hundred. And, since I always think myself an all-rounder (or a good all-rounder at least (not necessarily in cricket)) I was reminded of the many great achievers who scored a ‘hundred’ in both batting and bowling or bowling and batting in test cricket (or one day internationals too).

So, I was very happy on my ‘double’ achievement and it reminded me the doubles by the top famous all-rounders in test cricket. For me it was always of Kapil Dev.

In this process I had also completed a hundred in ‘Devnagri Script’ category and so I was the first to have scored a ‘hundred’ in the three (main) categoris on the blog. After that Sudhir ji reached a hundred in the ‘lyrics contribution’ category and that was a ‘Senior’s entry’ to this ‘triple’s club’ 🙂 .

My one hundred and fiftieth post came on the 3545th day of the blog with this song – ‘Jin Khoja Tin Paayiyaan’ – on 02.04.2018, the post number being 14228th.

Reaching 175 did reminded me of Kapil Dev’s 175 against Zimbabwe, how can anyone forget that? I remember we had gone to the nearby city for some work and when I was heading to my home in the colony few of my friends told me about the score of Indian batting which was very shocking for me. As I reached home Kapil Dev was already on the crease, so what I do was to take the transistor with me in the ground- so that I can concentrate alone (and may be the transmission was not clear inside home, I don’t remember it fully now) near my home where we use to play cricket to listen the commentary there because the match was already very tense. But as Kapil Dev started hitting the ball to each corner of the ground the excitement was on the top and the rest, we all know is a history now.

My first lyrics contribution was the 6633rd post on the blog. And today as I share this post on this 3996th day for the blog, this is the 15091st post on the blog.

Before I joined the blog, the blog had 340 songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi already covered on the blog and the today’s song is Sahir Saab’s 623rd song on the blog. In between I had also completed a century of my contribution for Sahir Ludhianvi songs on 27.03.2015, with the song “Teri Karam Kahaani Teri Aatma Bhi Jaane“,  on the 2443rd day for the blog, and so far I think have been successful in contributing around 130 songs of Sahir Saab. May be the final tally will cross 150 if everything goes well. The journey is on!!! 🙂

In between I had an opportunity to share a long song six-part song – “Sambhaalo Ae Watan Waalon Watan Apna Sambhaalo“, and I think I can take it as the highest score in an innings in any type of contribution here (lyrics and lyrics in Devnagri script) except the write up/post, and will always remind of the highest score in test cricket which is 400* not out by Brian Lara. 🙂

On the way I do secretly completed my fourth hundred in ‘lyrics contribution’ (like the third one), however nowadays in this ‘age of technology’ the secrets cannot be hold for too longer and when I was silently moving towards another ‘achievement’, which I thought would also pass on secretly, there were already ‘some signals’ asking me about it and I realized that ‘ab raaz chhupaana mushqil hai’. . . 😉

For today’s post too I have selected a song penned by Sahir Saab and composed to music by Ravindra Jain ji. This movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain’ (1979) was the first collaboration of Sahir Ludhianvi and Ravindra Jain the other being ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ in 1980. All songs for ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ have already been covered on the blog.

Today we get introduced to the film ‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ from 1979.

‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ was directed by Prem Sagar for his home production Prem Sagar Films, Bombay and under the banner of Sagar Art Enterprises. It was presented by Ramanand Sagar.

It had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Sheetal, Keshto Mukherjee, Arvind Trivedi, Ram Sethi, Mac Mohan, Shammi, Birbal, Jankidas, Paro, Aashoo, Shobhna Shah, Madhu Shah, Shanti, Aasha, Nirmal Kumar, Chander Mohan Khanna, Dhawan, and Ramlal. Tom Alter makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Kamleshwar and Ramanand Sagar. Suhrid Kar, CL Kavish and Kulwant Jaani were writers for additional screenplay and dialogues. Script and scenario for this movie was written by KK Shukla. Editing of this movie was done by Lachmandass. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.11.1979.

This movie had six songs all written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravindra Jain. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

For the preparation of this post I had requested Atul ji for the records and I can say here that the one going through this details maintained by Atul ji can only realize the efforts put by him and by Sudhir ji too in recording of the statistics on the blog and its retrieval whenever they want to have it for some special occasion (may be some auto ‘alerts’). I salute both of them!!!

Finally remembering all the statisticians in Indian Cricket and paying our tributes to their great works let us enjoy the today’s songs. They may be the first one to know of all the approaching milestones and records like our Atul ji or Sudhir ji (by the way I remember Sudhir Vaidya as a famous statistician in Indian Cricket history) and they all may be first one to know all the raaz’s which the general public may not be aware unless disclosed or made public 🙂 , and may be in other fields of our society we have some secrets/mystery which were never disclosed/solved. . .

And since I have not watched this movie I cannot say and disclose the ‘hidden’ raaz’s of this movie, except this song 😉

However, it seems to be an interesting movie to watch. For now let us enjoy this beautiful song.

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Welcome to a post which will get a reaction of “Yeh gaana baaki hai???” And I am sure Atulji will put this song under the category “How did I forget to post this song earlier?”.

In the 70s, and for all the 43 years since, this song has been extremely popular. It is a love song where the young couple meet on the sly, in the middle of the night. It was sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar for a sweet seventeen Neetu Singh and a handsome/ charming 23-year-old Rishi Kapoor. It had very simple choreography by PL Raj that made the pair look very adorable. It was written by Gulshan Bawra and set to tune by our today’s birthday boy.

27th June our dear RD Burman would have turned 80. Like I have written in my post which accompanied the song to remember Kishore Kumar on his last birthday, how I wish Pancham or RDB had not left this world when he did. Then the treasure trove of wonderful songs would have been overflowing. But then that was not to be and we lost him in 1994. But there is still a treasure trove which gives us a lot of songs which if played continuously will last us for days on end. There is a song for every mood. Currently as I write this, I have chosen some random songs on amazon prime music which began with “Chaand Churaa Ke Laya Hoon” (‘Devta’, 1978) went on to “Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si Palkon Pe” (‘Anaamika’, 1973) followed by “O Maanjhi Re” (‘Khushboo’, 1975) and has another 20 songs which include “Bangle Ke Peeche Teri Beri Ke Neeche” (‘Samaadhi’, 1972), “Roz Roz Dali Dali” (‘Angoor’, 1982), and “Mera Pyaar. . . Shalimar” (‘Shaimar’, 1978). Now I must admit I love RDB songs and what I chose to hear were songs which I have not heard in a while. I am totally impartial in my selections. 🙂

Now on to today’s song. Thank you, RD Burman, for bequeathing to us a huge set of songs to remember you with.

Editor comment-With this song, Asha Bhonsle completes 2600 songs as a playback singer in the blog.

Song – Ek Main Aur Ek Tu, Dono Miley Is Tarah  (Khel Khel Mein) (1975) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Gulshan Baawra, MD – RD Burman

Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15058

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 34
——————————————————————————————

Ten years back, 3rd June, 2009, five songs and five films. The films are,

Shart 1954
Return of Mr Superman 1960
Ganga Jamuna 1961
Khoj 1971
Ek Baar Muskura Do 1972

The film ‘Shart’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog with the iconic “Naa Ye Chaand Hogaa Na Taare Rahenge”. In terms of completion, the films ‘Shart’ and ‘Ganga Jamuna’ have been yippeee’d already. The remaining songs of the rest of the three films are waiting in the wings.

Coming of 1960s also saw the waning of the career of music director Anil Biswas. Active in the industry since 1935, Anil Biswas has made a very significant and a lasting contribution to the music of Hindi cinema. A trendsetter in many ways, Anil Da has also been responsible to introduce and groom some of the finest singing voices in the industry.

After two and half decades, in the beginning of 1960s, his body of work was reduced to just a trickle. In 1961, he directs the music for ‘Lucky Number’; in 1962, it is ‘Sautela Bhai’; and after many delays, ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ finally got released in 1965.  And it turns out to be his last film in the industry. He had actually moved to Delhi already, during this time frame (March of 1963) and was working at the All India Radio as the director of the National Orchestra and Chief Producer of the program ‘Sugam Sangeet’.

Today, we revisit one of his lesser known films – ‘Return of Mr Superman’ from 1960. The song is a mujra performance, presented on screen by Heera Sawant. I hope I am correctly identifying the main dancer in this clip. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct me. There are other actors in the audience that can be identified. We can clearly make out David and Rajan Haksar. There is another gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes. I request the readers and friends to please help put a name to this face. Also, there is a trio of supporting singers on screen, who lip sync the chorus lines. Again, the request is to help identify these ladies.
[Ed Note: Prakash ji has identified the “. . .gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes.” as Jagdish Kanwal. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The film is produced and directed by Manmohan Sabir, for his home banner – Manmohan Pictures, Bombay. The film has seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Kaif Irfani, Manmohan Sabir, and PL Santoshi. This song is written by Manmohan Sabir. The music, of course, is by Anil Biswas.

The cast of the film is listed as Jairaj, Sheela Ramani, Helen, David, Naazi, Majnu, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Kanwal, Heera Sawant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Mohinder, Saleem Raza, Robert, Gulab, Ramesh, Arvind, Harun, Master Naveen, Krishna, and Funny Walker.

There is one interesting discussion that we have had earlier on this blog, relating to one song purportedly from this film. The song is “Stella O Stella O Stella”. The curiosity about this song is that it has also appeared earlier in the film ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ from 1959. This earlier film also has music directed by Anil Biswas. On our blog, it so happens that this song, as it appears in ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is already posted; and the same song as it appears in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ has not yet been posted.

I would like to bring to the notice of interested readers, the fact that this song does NOT appear in the list of songs given in Geet Kosh for the film ‘Return of Mr Superman’. The original song, as appearing in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’, written by Sahir Sb, is the correct attribution of this song. The appearance in the later film ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is simply a repeat use, probably inserted at a short notice to fill a certain scenario. The song certainly does not belong to this later film.

Coming back to the song for today – as one listens carefully, one realizes that this is actually a ghazal that has been presented as a mujra. An interesting variation. I am sure we will find more such instances, if we start looking carefully. Earlier, we have identified a couple of ghazals that has been presented as qawwaalis (and I am sure there are more of such instances also). So now we have another variation – I am sure we will find more cases of a ghazal presented as a mujra. As one listens to the wordings, it is really a very endearing expression –

dil to tujh ko de diya, ab jaan bhi de denge hum
jaan lene se na ab, ae jaan e mann ghabraaiye

So, remembering Anil Biswas – his rememberance day was 31st May, just three days ago. Getting on to another 10 year connect. And getting to listen to this wonderful mujra. . .

Editor note-With this song, Meena Kapoor completes 100th song as a singer in the blog.

Blog Day : 3915 Post No. : 14977

Today’s song is from the 1981 movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan’. And let us start from where I left in my last post with the song of the same movie here.

The movie starts with a phone ringing in a ‘central hall’ 🙂 of a ‘spacious’ bungalow, and as the phone bell is ringing, servants from all corners of the house run to pick it up. However, they are stopped by PA (Deven Verma),
‘thehro telephone ham uthhayenge. Ham bade maalik ke PA hain yane ke Personal Assistant’.

From the other side Bade Maalik (of course Jeetendra) calling at home from a Bussiness tour (I think) informs his PA about Chhote Maalik’s (double Jeetendra) birthday today and instructs him to arrange a ‘shaandaar party’ and call all ‘milnewaale’ to the party in evening. He also tells his PA that he will be reaching by the evening flight. I don’t know why his PA gets surprised and asked ‘Hawaai jahaz se?

‘kya kahaa ham nahin jaa sakte’, what do you mean? that is how Bade Maalik appears on screen, when he is informed by one of his assistants that flight tickets are not available in any of the services, so Bade Maalik tells him that
‘aaj hamaare bete ka janamdin hai, aur aaj ke din ham duniya ke kisi bhi kone mein ho, ghar zaroor pahunchte hain’,

‘I am sorry Sir, aaj ki flight mein ek bhi seat khaali nahin hai’

‘agar seat khaali nahin to ‘Charter a plane’ …

At home the PA is looking for Chhote Maalik as Bade Maalik has left by plane for home, but where is Chhote Maalik? all servants in the house report the PA that Chhote Maalik is nowhere neither in his room nor in the garden ??

And here we have Chhote Maalik Ravikant (Ravi Kapoor or Jeetendra for us 🙂 ) celebrating his birthday with singing and dancing with his girlfriend and others in a club …

While he performs and entertain us on his birthday with this song dance performance in this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’, in real life, we also wish him a very happy birthday and peaceful and healthy life ahead.

***

Today 7th April 2019 is the seventy-seventh (born on 07.04.1942) birth anniversary of actor Jeetendra.
When I thought of presenting the song under discussion, I was doubtful whether I would be able to write with the same passion as I display for other actors like say Rajesh Khanna. But then I have written on actors other than Rajesh Khanna who are part of the ‘nostalgia’ for me
of my growing years’, when we watched movies without being fans of any specific actor/actress. There were several movies of Jeetendra that I had watched during my growing up years and I thank him for the entertainment, the beautiful memories and many lovely songs from his movies.

I remember I watched many of Jeetendra movies with my Parents and elder ones in the family like Uncles. Those were family drama movies and they were mostly from the producers of South. Here I would mention movies like ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Jeene Ki Raah-1969’, ‘Waaris-1969’, ‘Humjoli-1970’, ‘Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari-1971’, ‘Banphool-1971’ which I vaguely remember some of them. Then movies like ‘Badaltey Rishtey-1978’, ‘Swarg Narak-1978’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane-1979’, ‘The Burning Train-1980’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’.

I watched many of his movies with brothers and cousins in summer vacations and these were mainly the multi-starrer movies of the seventies. And these were movies like ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Dharam Veer-1977’, ‘Dildaar-1977’, ‘Nalayak-1978’, ‘Aatish-1979’,’Jaani Dushman-1979’ (this I watched alone), ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’, ‘Samrat-1982’, ‘Udhar Ka Sindoor-1976’, ‘Kinaara-1977’, ‘Priyatama-1977’, ‘Jal Mahal-1980’, ‘Nishaana-1980’ (which I must have watched during end seventies or early eighties)

This trend continued till ‘Himmatwala’. It was round this time that ‘Souten’ and ‘Avtaar’ were released and then it was mainly Rajesh Khanna for me.

Nebertheless I remember that my grandmother, aunts and others tenants in our building wanting to watch ‘Tohfaa-1984’ had asked me to do the advance booking for this movie and so I watched this movie too.

Around the same time, I watched his ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Khilona-1970’, ‘Ek Bechaara-1972’. I watched ‘Maqsad-1984’ because of Rajesh Khanna.

After that as I grew up and was already working, I watched his ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone-1964’, ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta-1967’. The other reason watching for ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone’ was it was V. Shantaram’s movie. Then I watched his ‘Caravan-1971’, and all this was during 1985-1988. I also watched ‘Pataal Bhairavi-1985’ for the fantasy factor in it.

I think I had watched ‘Swarg Se Sunder-1986’, ‘Locket-1986’, ‘Souten Ki Beti-1989’,

I think I watched ‘Parichay-1972’, ‘Aasha-1980’, ‘Karmyogi-1978’ either on TV or VCR much later than above.

I must have watched some of his other movies either in theatre or on TV, like ‘Mere Hamsafar’, ‘Dharti Kahe Pukaar Ke’ etc. but don’t remember them.

Also, I must have watched some of his earlier movies or part of them on TV but I don’t remember.

I don’t remember to have watched any Jeetendra movies after that all these years except when I watched ‘Dil Aur Deewaar-1977’ last year on an online facility and on my mobile phone. This was for post with a song from this movie and since I had nostalgia about this movie’s name but had not watched it in those years.

Watching movies then was always enjoyable and it would be interesting now to watch his movies by conscious selection which I have missed, movies like ‘Mere Huzoor-1968’ (which I don’t remember to have watched) or ‘Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti-1967’, ‘Jigri Dost-1969’ (of which couple of songs are my favorites) and of course ‘Naya Rastaa-1970’ which has songs penned by Sahir Saab.

‘Deedaar-E-Yaar-1982’ is another movie which I think I should watch. And then ‘Apnapan-1977’, ‘Maang Bharo Sajna-1980’, ‘Arpan-1983’, ‘Nishaan-1983’ (for Kaka), and ‘Mehndi Rang Laayegi-1982’ …

Many more to the wish list … and it is my mistake if I have missed to add any of his ‘must-watch’ movies in the above list, like I remember my seniors liked ‘Meri Aawaaz Suno-1981’ very much then, which I am yet to watch.

Now we come back to today’s song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip-synced by Jeetendra. Reena Roy is accompanying him in this performance and we can see many others in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past. Here is the list of these songs already covered in the blog:

1 Tera saath hai to Multiple version song 915 17-Mar-09
2 O meri chammak challo 970 25-Mar-09
3 Megha re megha re 6412 10-Aug-12
4 In haseen waadiyon se 14933 17-Mar-19

This is the final song from this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ and with this ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ has all its songs covered on the blog. 🙂

This song is the 800th song of Laxmikant Pyarelal as music directors.

Once again wishing Jeetendra a very happy birthday today, let us now enjoy this song …

Missing Films of 1960s – 103
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that we bring on board today is ‘Sati Sulochana’ from 1969. One more film that is rarely heard about, although the video of this film is available. And once again, lovely songs that have not been explored. The sound of this song seems like it was heard on the radio, but that was a long time back.

The music is by SN Tripathi, who incidentally has also directed this film. The film is produced under the banner of SA Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj, Anita Dutt, Prem Nath, Raj Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Kanan Kaushal, Sundar, Ram Singh, and Ram Mohan etc.

The story of Sati Sulochana is part of the history of Ramayan.  Sulochana is the daughter of Sheshnaag, the king of serpents. She is married to Meghnaad, the son of Raavan. Meghnaad is also known as Indrajit, for he had once vanquished Lord Indra and captured many sophisticated weapons from him. In the narrative of Ramayan, Sulochana is described as a brave lady who is very supportive of her husband. Eventually, when her husband is killed in the battle with Lakshman, she makes a decision to immolate herself on his pyre.

This story has been made into films on many occasions. The first one on record is the silent film ‘Sati Sulochana’ in 1921. Then this film was produced in Kannada, in 1934, as the first talkie film in Kannada language. In 1935, a Hindi film was also released by this name, under the production banner of Godavari Cinetone. In 1961, this tale was also told in a Telegu film starring NT Ramarao. And then in 1969, we have this Hindi production again.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Music is from the mind of SN Tripathi. The songs have been written by Bharat Vyas and BD Mishra. This song is from the pen of Bharat Vyas.  The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, it appears as if the leading lady and one of two of her friends are lip syncing the same playback singing.

The song is picturized as a group dance song, in which the leading lady is being teased by her friends, asking her who is the one who comes into your dreams. The song is a lively exchange between the lady and her sahelis. On screen, I am not able to identify with certainty, the lady who leads the song. Is she Kanan Kaushal? I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help identify her.

Enjoy this lovely lilting melody, one of those songs that should have been more popular.

 

Song – Kaun Tere Sapnon Mein Aata  (Sati Sulochana) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa
aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

hato ri sapne ki na boloon
bhed yeh mann ka na kholoon
jaao ri sakhi jaao
mujhe na yun sataao
khel ye mann ko na bhaata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
megh varan tha
kanak rang tha
mere jeevan mein samaa gaya
chhup ke kaanon mein kuchh bola
haule se ghunghat pat khola
akhiaan ghabraai
main to sharmaai
aage ab kuchh na kaha jaata
koi tere sapnon mein aata

veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
jaan nahin
pehchaan nahin koi
phir bhi wo mann ko bhaaya
preet meri muskaai hai
pooja meri rang laai hai
chhudaaye se na chhoote
tode to nahin toote
janm janmaantar ka naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

हटो री सपने की ना बोलूँ
भेद ये मन का ना खोलूँ
जाओ री सखी जाओ
मुझे ना यूं सताओ
खेल ये मन को ना भाता’
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मेघ वरण था
कनक रंग था
मेरे जीवन में समा गया
छुप के कानों में कुछ बोला
हौले से घूँघट पट खोला
अखियाँ घबराईं
मैं तो शरमाई
आगे अब कुछ ना कहा जाता
कोई तेरे सपनों में आता

वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
जान नहीं
पहचान नहीं कोई
फिर भी वो मन को भाया
प्रीत मेरी मुसकाई है
पूजा मेरी रंग लाई है
छुड़ाए से ना छूटे
तोड़े तो नहीं टूटे
जन्म जन्मांतर का नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

Missing Films of 1960s – 100
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, finally, we get to a new type of century today. This series of bringing on board the missing films of 1960s becomes the series that has clocked 100 posts – a first one for our blog. This series got initiated three and half years ago on 30th September, 2015, and we arrive at the century station for it, at the rate of about 2 to 3 songs per month on average. The pace could have been faster, yes, but well, we have what we have. 🙂

As you must be aware, this series got kicked off by the efforts of Khyati Ben. She got into the exercise to check how many films of the 1960s (period from 1961 to 1970) have been brought on board our blog, and which ones are still waiting to be included. She came up with a list of some 190+ films, still waiting in the wings. The analysis resulted in this exercise, to bring on board as many of these 190+ films are traceable / available. And it got assigned to yours truly. 🙂

I will wait to present the final analysis of numbers, as there is still about seven of eight more films that are traceable and will be represented here. So bear with me for a little more time for that.

The film that we bring on board today is an obscure and lesser known film by the name ‘Ek Masoom’ from 1969. The interesting thing about this film is that although the gramophone records of this film have been available, the film itself was not available for a very long time. Finally, the film surfaced about a year ago, and I acquired a copy of it through a collector friend. Video clips of some of the songs are now available on the YouTube.

The film is produced under the banner of GNS Films Bombay, and is directed by Akhtar Khalid. The cast of actors listed for this film is Tanuja, Saleem Durrani, Prem Chopra, Surendra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Uma, Azra, Sulochana, Helen, Jagdeep, Murad, Mohan Choti, and Baby Masoom. I have a concern about this list. The name of Saleem Durrani is included. However, I have seen the film, and the Saleem Durrani (the cricketer) that we are familiar with, is not visible in this film. The lead actor opposite to Tanuja is a different person. One possibility is that this actor also has the name Saleem Durrani, or has used this name in this film. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify the male actor in this song. The face is completely new and unfamiliar.

The film itself is a cops and robbers tale and Mohan Choti plays the role of a gangster boss. The lead person, whom we are trying to identify, plays a triple role in this film. He appears in different situations with different names, causing a lot of confusion to the people around him. And then finally, there is court room drama where all the three appear one by one, and the mystery of the correct identity is solved.

The film does not have much to write home about. The direction and editing is below par and leaves a lot to be desired. The storyline moves with fits and starts. But the songs – now that is a different story, as usual. Seven songs are listed for this film. The music is by N Dutta. The lyricist’s name is just very, very unfamiliar – Fareed Tonki. As I checked some more, I find his name in just one more film – ‘Zaalim Tera Jawab Nahin’ (1960), and one unreleased film ‘Aqidat Ke Phool’. Checking on our blog, I find that one creation by him is posted here. This is a famous non-film qawwaali – “Raste Alag Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai”. So the gentleman is represented already on our blog, although no other information is traceable so far about him. His name, Fareed Tonki, suggest that he may be from the town named Tonk, in Rajasthan.

The song that I present today is an exquisite duet of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle – such a lovely lost gem this one is. The composition is easy paced and and light, and the rendition is very soft and soothing. A very pleasing song to hear to. (Of course, the song is much better heard than viewed.) On screen, it is Tanuja, and this gentleman that I am not able to identify.

Song – Poochh Le Dil Se Mere Ho Na Agar Mera Yakeen  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm hmmm

pooch le
dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen
par zamaane ka ye kehna
hai ke tu mera nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
tere hi dum se to hai
shadaabiaan gulzar ki
tu jahaan rakhe kadam
phool khilen laakhon wahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
tere jalwon mein ab
shaam o sehar khoi rahoon
chhod ke daaman tera
jaaun na main aur kahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen

dil mera hai aaina
gar hai nazar pehchaan le
pehle hi pehchaan ke
dil hai diya ye jaan le
hum se kyon duniya jaley
ulfat koi jurm nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्म

पूछ ले
दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
मैं मोहब्बत हूँ
मोहब्बत के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं
ए सनम
तेरी कसम
मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं
पर ज़माने का ये कहना
है के तू मेरा नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
तेरे ही दम से तो है
शादाबियाँ गुलज़ार की
तू जहां रखे कदम
फूल खिलें लाखों वहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
तेरे जलवों में अब
शाम ओ सहर खोई राहून
छोड़ के दामन तेरा
जाऊँ ना मैं और कहीं
ए सनम
तेरी कसम
मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं

दिल मेरा है आईना
गर है नज़र पहचान ले
पहले ही पहचान के
दिल है दिया ये जान ले
हम से क्यों दुनिया जले
उलफत कोई जुर्म नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
मैं मोहब्बत हूँ
मोहब्बत के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 20
——————————————————–

Today (21 march 2019) is the festival of Holi. Indian festivals are based on Indian festivals and so they fall on different days in different years vis a vis Gregorian Calender). For instance, ten years ago in 2009, Holi festival had taken place on 11 march.

It is not possible to have Ten year challenge for Holi festival songs, because first, the festival falls on different days in different years of Gregorian calender (as discussed above). Secondly, one movie normally has only one Holi song. I have yet to come across a movie that has two separate Holi songs.

This article is not a Holi song, but it is a “Blog Ten Year Challenge” song nevertheless. And it is a very special song as we will come to know soon enough.

Seven songs from seven different movies were covered in the blog on 21 march 2009. Out of these movies, “Dhoop Chhaaon”(1935), “Acchut Kanya”(1936), “Aag”(1948) , Anaadi”(1959) and “Kaaliya”(1981) have been YIPPEED by now. So that leaves only two movies viz “Jantar Mantar”(1964) and “Chaandni”(1989) that are eligible for blog ten year challenge today (21 march 2009).

The movie “Jantar Mantar”(1964) was directed by Radhakant for Omkar enterprises, Bombay. This “kalpnik” movie, which basically means a C grade movie, had Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhary, Ulhas, Sherri, Jeewankala, Babu Raje, Mridula, Qamar, Ghanshyam, Ajeet Kumar, Dubey, Kesri, Saiyyad, Rajmala, Madhumati etc in it.

The movie has six songs. One song from this movie has been covered in the past. And that one song was discussed exactly ten years ago on 21 march 2009. One song covered in 21 march 2009 and then no khoj khabar of this movie for full one decade. Bahut naainsaafi hai !

That one song from this movie was a Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet. The second song from this movie, which is being discussed today after exactly ten years is a Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet as well. And this is no ordinary Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet. This song, a rare song, is the one hundredth Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet in the blog.

With this song, Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur become the seventh singing duo to have a century of their duet songs in the blog. Here are the details of these singing duos:

singing duo Number of duet songs in the blog
Rafi-Asha Bhonsle 518
Rafi-Lata 335
Kishore Kumar-Asha Bhonsle 219
Kishore Kumar-Lata 193
Mukesh-Lata 139
Rafi-Geeta Dutt 107
Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur 100

The song is penned by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music is composed by Sardar Malik. This song is picturised on Mahipal and Vijaya Chaudhary. Incidentally, a song of Anu Malik, Sardar Malik’s son and Hasrat Jaipur I’d nephew was covered in the blog earlier today.

Lyrics

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
main hoon pyaasi prem deewaani
aisi baat na kar
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

main door kahin jaaun
aakaash ke taaron mein
ulfat ko nibhaaungi
toofaan ke dhaaron mein
toofaan ke dhaaron mein
hum donon ki ek lagan hai
dil mein dil ka ghar
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar

ye pyaas to saagar hai
main doob ke jaata hoon
tere hi ujaalon se
har cheez ko paata hoon
har cheez ko paata hoon
lab par tera naam suhaana
duniya ka kya darr
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar

kyun dekhoon kisi ko main
tum meri mohabbat ho
jeewan ka sahaara ho
aankhon ki ibaadat ho
aankhon ki ibaadat ho
koi na samjhe dil aurat ka
hota hai mandir
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
