After yet another fairly long absence from the blog, I am back here with this post.

As I said in my previous post, this absence has purely to do with my tendency sometimes to withdraw from social contact and go into a shell. It is a phase I go through and has absolutely nothing to do with any specific individual or group.

Least of all, this blog.

It’s been a while since my last post here.  And to be absolutely honest, I haven’t even been active on the blog recently.

This is for a variety of reasons, none of which is, thankfully, any cause of worry. I go into this shell from time to time. I hope Atul, and my other friends here, know me long enough now to not mind my absence. It is nothing to do with the blog or with them, it is just me and my bizarre-ness. Anyway, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I’m back here today.

But why today? What’s so special about today? Well, today is special, not just for one, but for two reasons. Firstly, the 8th of March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. Secondly, it also happens to be the birthday of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of our most celebrated poets and lyricists.  And most people who know me on this blog know what a special place Sahir has in my heart.  I have often posted his songs here, especially on his birth and death anniversaries. I feel that’s the least I can do for him.

As blog milestones go, century milestones of this blog no longer attract as much attention as they used to attract in the past. The fact that there have been as many as 129 such occasions may have led to this “familiarity breeds indifference” attitude on the parts of the regulars.

Century posts are our regular and most frequent causes for celebration in the blog. In the past, we would have such celebrations after every 15-16 days. Now a days, we get to celebrate such occasions at a rather more mature and sedate pace, viz after every 27-28 days.

This post is yet another century post for the blog. It marks the 129th century of the blog, viz 12900th song post for the blog.

Another day, another milestone! Only the other day we were celebrating Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And now we have another milestone.

Some might say, this blog is beginning to deliver milestones like Virat Kohli or Ravichandran Ashwin do. 🙂
But who’s complaining? I, most certainly, am not! 🙂

As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.

Welcome to all readers to the 126th century on the blog. Yes, we now have 12,600 songs on board with this post.

It’s now customary to have a special post or a song on such occasions. The last one saw a bundle of century celebrations in a single post. This time however it will be different in the sense that the highlight will be on the song itself and its historic importance rather than other aspects.

A few days back, I had mentioned in one of my articles in the Blog that I regard 1940s as the transitional phase for Hindi film music which paved the way for the arrival of the golden period of Hindi film music in 1950s and 1960s. The music director who triggered the ‘renaissance’ period of the 1940s in Hindi film music was Master Ghulam Haider. His song compositions in ‘Khazaanchi’ (1941) revolutionised Hindi film music. One of the popular songs from the film Saawan ke nazaare hain (Khazaanchi) was a trend setter not only for Hindi film music but also for the picturisation of the song.
