Hullo to all in Atuldom

We all know the meaning of the word “Bhaand”; for those not conversant with colloquial Hindi; googling the word throws up meanings —Clown, Mimic, Comedian etc. “Bhaands” are also traditionally folk entertainers which might mean a storyteller, minstrels, dancers, actors, impressionists etc. Most bhaands belong to families that are engaged in folk entertainment as their hereditary profession, their specific art forms vary greatly by region, community and language. The term bhaand itself can also mean either a specific dramatic story or an entire form/school of drama.

Today (19 july 2016) is the eighth anniversary of this blog. On this occasion, I as well as some of our regulars have shared our views on the blog.

I have shared my views in two posts and I find that I still have some more things to say that have not been covered in my previous articles. So here is another writeup on the occasion.:)

It was on this date (19 july) that the first article was posted on 19 july 2008 eight years ago and the blog thus got launched. We have been celebrating this day every year in the blog as the blog anniversary day ever since.

rukh hawaaon kaa jidhar kaa hai udhar ke hum hain

Where the direction of the wind is the place to which we belong].

The duration has been sliced to less than half, rather almost one third. That is, in comparison to the previous interregnum. Maybe not THE quickest but one of the quickest. Ah yes, I refer to the century milestone, the 122nd that we strike today. The reference to the duration is the time comparison between this one today, and the one that came just before it. We had hit the 12 thousand mark on 20th April. After that, it has been a real slow tread to come to the next one hundredth mark, which happened on 18th June. Counting the days, the number is 60. One of the tardiest to have occurred on this blog. But then we made it up, very sprightly and very quick – from 19th June to 10th July today. Counting the days, the number is 22. Wow, that is the bandwagon at its galloping best. The Raanchiwaala Gaanewaala is pulling out all the stops.

Congratulations to all the bandwagoneers – one more batch of a hundred songs is now added to the collection. And the musical journey continues, merrily onwards.

Today, with this post, we arrive at the 12,100th post on this blog. That’s 121 centuries that this blog has clocked so far. The mind continues to boggle.

As a person who’s seen this blog from day one (from the time “mile na phool” was posted as the very first song on this blog), I feel elated everytime we reach a milestone. I still remember when Atul posted the 100th and then 200th and so on. Each one was an occasion for celebration. Because each one was a marker of progress on a journey that we knew would be a long (and highly enjoyable) one. We have done that 121 times now – and I think I speak for many of us when I say, ye dil maange more.:-).

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

hazaaron khwaahishen aisi
ke har khwaahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mere armaan
magar phir bhi kam nikle

roz aise hi hota hai, it happens almost every day. Every day, there is a song that comes to mind, or a song that someone reminds me of, or a ‘new’ old song that I get to hear – a song that is not yet on the blog, or maybe not yet online even. There is an immediate urge, a rush to sit down at my desk and finger type a new post on my laptop. And also upload it online, if need be. Many a time I even start it. The melody continues to hum in the mind. Always overlaid on to another melody that is now a fixture in the backdrop, a melody that you have heard me mention often in my writings – ye hansta hua kaarvan zindagi ka na poochho chala hai kidhar

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 46
——————————————————–

I take it as a privilege to present the 100th song of a low profile music director who was very active during 1937-1948 though his musical career in films extended till 1965. I have described him as a low profile music director because he and his music has rarely been discussed in articles and books pertaining to Hindi film music. Even Dr Ashok Da Ranade, in his book ‘Hindi Film Song – Music Beyond Boundary’ has not found it necessary to discuss the technicalities of his musical scores who was music director for 58 films aggregating over 600 songs. The music director under discussion is Gyan Dutt.

The counter has been stuck at double one triple nine, for three days now. That, I am sure, will have beaten all the records in the books.
