Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

Blog Day :

4640 Post No. : 16300

The musical bandwagon may be moving slower now a days, but it is moving on nevertheless. Everyday sees at least one post in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day for the blog). Since then, the blog has added at least one song every day for the last 563 days.

Today is 4640th day for the blog. On this day we achieve yet another landmark figure, viz post number 16300. In other words, we complete the 163rd century for the blog today. It works out to an average of 28.5 days for one century. So by the time our moon completes one rotation of the earth, the blog completes one century of songs. 🙂

Here I have likened the progress of the blog to moon. But in the past, I have likened the blog to a bandwagon. And on other occasions, I have likened it to a train as well. 🙂

Come to think of it, trains fascinate us nearly as much as Hindi movie songs fascinate us. Trains in fact fascinate Hindi movie makers also. And so we find trains playing important roles in many Hindi movies. Many songs in these movies take place on trains.

When I checked up, I realised that the blog has just over one hundred rain songs already. We have 102 rail related songs in the blog so far.

If onev thinks that these rail related songs have beebn covered by me ( a Railwayman myself), you cannot be more wrong. Most regular contributors of the blog have contributed to this impressive catalog of rail songs in the blog. Just take a look at the chart here to see the contributions of rail related posts and lyrics by our regulars :-

What an impressive collection of Rail related songs by our regulars.

Some of these songs have doubled up as blog century posts as well. Here is the list of Rail songs that haave been used as blog century posts :-

15800 Hamaare dil ke station pe bhi baabu kabhi aanaa Fifty Fifty(1950) 12 August 2020

I have decided to use another Rail song as this blog century song. I had a good number of Rail songs to chose from. Avinash Scrapwala, one of the bigger Railway fans among the regulars, had sent me several rail related lyrics and he keeps reminding me about them periodically. I have chosen one of those lyrics for this post.

This song is from “Naach”(1949). “Naach” (1949) was directed by Ravindra Dave for Kuldip Pictures. The movie had Shyam, Suraiya, Kuldip, Raj Mehra, Gulab, Yashodhara Katju, Sofia, Shyama, Wasti, Om Prakash etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

This rail song from “Naach”(1949) is sung by Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and an unknown male voice.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement which has kept this musical labour of love to keep rolling on and on without any stoppages. Here is hoping that we will countinue to keep arriving at many more milestones during our musical journey.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 12
—————————————————————————

This day ten years ago, which was 18 February 2012, saw as many as six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
3538 Dil hi bujha hua ho to fasle bahaar kyaa Nirdosh(1941) 2 songs covered out of 9 by now
3539 Aao Shyaam Sundar ab to shaam ho chali jeewan ki Maashookaa(1953) Movie YIPPEED by now

3543 Honey lagaa hai kyun dil beqaraar Raaj Tilak(1958) 4 songs out of 13 covered

We can see that three out of six movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. So we have three movies whose songs can be taken up under the Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

“Anuraag”(1956) is one of these three movies. “Anuraag”(1956) was produced by singer Mukesh and directed by Madhusudan for Mukesh Films. The movie had Usha Kiran, Mukesh, Mridula, Protima Devi, Shivraj, Uma devi etc in it.

Five songs (out of 9) have been covered in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Indeevar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mukrsh.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on the leading lady viz Usha Kiran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Will this song, Indeevar, almost unnoticeably, has reached 300 songs in the blog as a lyricist.


Song-Man chal man chanchal ho jaayegaa (Anuraag)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeevar, MD-Mukesh

Blog Day :

4583 Post No. : 16200

So it is that day again. The day when we reach a blog century. Though the going is quite slow now a days, still we are regular (no DOT days since 2020) and so we keep clocking our blog centuries every five to six weeks or so.

This article is blog post number 16200. This century took us exactly 50 days to reach.

I have mentioned it in the past that I remain tension free on most days but I get a bit tensed up when the century post arrives, because we need to look for a special song for the occasion. And I began worrying about locating the special song only at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. 🙂 This is an old habit of mine. My preparation for Examinations also used to be on similar lines. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion has been on my radar for several months. I considered covering it on many occasions during the last few months, but I backed off every time. There were many reasons.

One main reason why I could not cover this song earlier was its lyrics. Noting down the lyrics of this song has been a great challenge, mainly because the words are totally unfamiliar. At the same time, the words are not gibberish. They have definite meanings. So effort was needed to try and note them down as well as one could.

The second challenge was writing about the song. It is a special song, at at the same time a lesser known song. People have not been able to appreciate this song because this song is difficult to locate and secondly because of lack of information about what makes this song special.

This song is from “Patraani”(1956). “Patraani”(1956) was produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt (the elder brother) and directed by Vijay Bhatt (the younger brother) for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Vyjayantimala, Pradeep Kumar, Omprakash, Shashikala, Durga Khote, David, Jeevan etc. in it. The story was written by Kanhaiyalal Maneklal Munshi.

The story, losely based on a real life story of 11th century has been narrated by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopedia, while discussing a previous song from the movie. Here is the story as narrated by him:-

King Karnadev Solanki, king of Gujrat(Pradeep Kumar) had many queens but no issues. The Rajmata(Durga Khote) insisted that he marry another girl after ascertaining astrologically her capability to give children.

The king had seen one princess in Somnath temple once and wanted to marry only her.But he does not know who she is. Actually she is princess Mrinal(Vyjayanti Mala) daughter of King Jai keshi(Ramesh Sinha) of Karnatak. She was on a Teerth yatra when she saw Karnadev. She also wanted to only marry him, but did not know who he was.

Munjal Mehta (David), Mahamantri of Karndev goes on a mission and soon finds out Mrinal. She is beautiful, but her skin becomes black in the sunlight. Munjal knows Karndev’s dislike of black. Mrinal is astrologically also fit. He tells her and shows the sketch of Karandev, after which she is happily ready to marry him.

They all travel to Gujarat, but during travel Mrinal’s skin becomes black. During marriage, there is a veil, but after marriage Karndev sees that she is black and rejects her.

She is good natured and becomes Raj mata’s pet. When the King falls sick, Mrinal serves him very well and slowly the King realises that outer skin colour does not make a person good or bad. He accepts her as she is and all’s well that ends well.

The movie was a musical blockbuster, with as many as ten songs in it. Nine songs have already been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Remarks
5560 Chandrma madbhara 2 March 2012 Lata solo. Based on Raag Shivranjani
11601 Arre koi jaao ree piya ko bulaao ree 27 November 2015 Three Mangeshkar sisters singing together
12206 Na jaane tum kaun meri aankhon mein sama gaye 12 July 2016 Lata solo
12453 Ho balma tum bedardi 15 October 2016 Lata solo
12521 Rang rangeeli pagiyaa baandhe aaye rituraaja 4 November 2016 C Ramchandra-Lata duet
12678 Dil gaya dard raha seene mein 10 December 2016 Lata solo
13758 Saat samandar paar haaye re mera sapnon ka sansaar 22 November 2017 Lata solo
15438 Kabhi to aa 15 February 2020 Lata solo
15812 Raaja pyaare mat karo pyaar ka mol 17 August 2020 Lata, Usha Mangeshkar duet

One can notice that the voice of Lata Mangeshkar was present in all the songs of the movie. Even the final song being discussed today contains her voice. So this movie was one of those special movies where one singer sang all the songs. All ten songs- in this case !

While most Hindi movie songs have classical music elements in them, the songs of “Patraani”(1956) were specifically so. Shankar Jaikishan, the most popular music directors of the golden era, seem to have composed the songs of this movie as a labour of love, rather than as a means to score another box office success. It appears that the songs were not promoted well during its time and they did not become as popular with music lovers of those days who already had many more popular songs to chose from.

The tenth and final song from the movie is listed in HFGK as “paawan ganga sir pe sohe”. The song begins with these words, and these words are among the few words that most music lovers can understand. Then the song gets transformed into a pucca classical song, namely Tarana. Tarana is a genre of pure classical Hindustani music which was created by Amir Khusro (1253–1325 AD). Amir Khusro was also the creator of a more popular form of semi classical music namely qawwaali. He was also the creator of Ghazal.

Unlike Qawwali and ghazal, Tarana is far less known and heard in Hindi movies and elsewhere. Hindi movies have had very few Taranas in them. One such tarana was covered by me in the blog in 2015 when I had started a series on Classical music. There I had given some information about Tarana. That song from “Ladki”(1953) was sung by Lata and it was picturised on Vyjyanti Mala.

The video of the final “Patrani”(1956) songs does not seem to be available, which is a shame. I am sure that the song, like the Tarana song from “Ladki”(1953) was picturised on Vyjyanmti Mala. I request our knowledgeable readers, who may have seen the movie, to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

The song is mentioned in HFGK as a Lata solo, but one can detect a male voice too who sings one full stanza of tarana bols. The song also has long passages sung by chorus, before Lata Mangeshkar resumes singing. Not just Shankar Jaikishan, even Lata Mangeshkar must have drawn considerable creative satisfaction in recording this song.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the male voice.

I have tried my level best to note down the lyrics of the song, but I have fallen short. I request our readers to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

Shailendra is the lyricist. If he actually came up with the tarana bols then that is a fantastic achievement for him. With this song, Shailendra completes 700 songs in the blog as a lyricist.

With this song, all the ten songs of “Patraani”(1956) are covered in the blog. The movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the past. The movie becomes the 1248th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

With this one song, now all the Shankar Jaikishan compositions in HFM, each and every Shankar Jaikshan movie from 1949 to 1968, viz from “Barasaat”(1949) to “Shikaar”(1968)-all 94 of them- have been YIPPEED in the blog. Now one will have to look at movies of 1969 to find the earliest Shankar Jaikshan movie not yet YIPPEED in the blog.

So, this one song helps tick many invisible boxes in the blog.

This blog has survived for more than 12 years, and it has survived the COVID 19 year as well. With so much of musical treasure already covered, and with so much of musical treasure still to be covered, I am sure this musical bandwagon will continue to see many more milestones in the days to come. I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement serves as the fuel for this musical bandwagon and keeps it moving.

Blog Day :

4575 Post No. : 16182

Today is 26th january (2021), which is republic day for India. Arguably, this is the most important day for independent India, more important than even the independence day, in my opinion.

71 years have passed since India was declared a republic on 26 January 1950. During the past 71 years, we have been through lots and lots of changes, upheavels, trials and tribulations, calamities etc. Thankfully today we find ourselves in a better position than what we were at in 1950. In fact, we find ourselves in a much better position vis a vis 1990.

I was born when the first Prime Minister and first President of India were still around. So I have lived through the eras of all the Prime Ministers and Presidents of India that we had !

During all these decades, some good practices have taken root. On the other hand, we still have some bad practices that we need to get rid of.

Instead of talking about what the government should do, here I will largely discuss what we need to do. Since we are a democratic republic, our behaviour decides what the government does, rather than the other way round.

Here are some of my observations.

1. Someone else will do it:- This attitude, which is basically passing the buck, has harmed India a great deal over the decades. Instead of doing the work ourselves, we wait for someone else to do the job. As a result, that job remains pending. Worst still, that creates a long lasting problem for the nation.

2. Chalta hai attitude– We expect others to be perfect, but we ourselves are far too lax in our on dealings. We can find fault in the batting technique of Virat Kohli, but we rarely judge our own performance in our workplace with the same high standards.

3. Putting self interest before national interest– Look at the demands of any unions, be it staff union or officers union. All the ten points of their memorandum would contain demands about betterment of their perks, not a single demand would be about the betterment of the organisation.

4. Very few people, typically 1 % of the people are supposed to bear the burden of the entire population. For instance, only 1 % population of India pays income tax, and that money is then squandered in giving subsidy to “poor” people instead of helping them train to come out of “poverty”.

5. Wealth creation and wealth creators have been demonised in India. Poor people and Poverty get glorified. This state of affairs should change immediately.

6. Many indians suffer from inferiority complex vis a vis western countries. This inferiority complex is misplaced and is a result of systematic brainwashing.

The above are some of the points that one can think of without much effort.

What do I have to suggest to improve matters ?

I will make a one point suggestion, instead of making too many suggestions. My one point suggestion is, we have to overhaul our education system. The present education system churns our zombies, who lack the ability to think for themselves and are easily brainwashed. It serves the purpose of the self seeking politicians but it has harmed the country a great deal in all fields. Our education system encourages rote memory, rather than application of knowledge. No wonder our manpower cannot even do basic works, forget doing cutting edge technical works. Whatever competent manpower we have are not because of our education system but inspite of this education system.

We have framed our constitutution based on the British Constitution. But we have not framed our education system based on British education system. British (namely Lord Macauley) gave us an education system in India. Britain herself has an entirely different kind of education system, one that does not seek to produce semi literate babus, unlike the case in India. As soon as India had our constitution, we needed to have our own education system. It has become too late now. Seven decades too late, but better late than never. we can still try and ensure better education system for the future generations.

Instead of insisting on same degrees for everyone, we need to insist on vocational training based on the aptitude of students, instead of imposing the same kind of education on everyone.

Failing an elephant because it cannot climb a tree, failing a monkey because it cannot fly, comdemning a goat because it cannot uproot a tree, that is how our Macaulean education system judges its students.

India has requirements of qualified people in all fields. What is happening now is that all people take the same education.Those who score higher marks become engineers, doctors. Those who score lower marks become civil servants. Those who score even lower become clerks. People scoring even lower become peons, guards etc. Those who cannot get any jobs become freelancers. Those who are not good enough for any jobs become politicians. And all these people are not trained properly for their jobs ! A clerk is not trained to be a clerk. A security guard is not trained to be a security guard. When a civil contractor hires workers to execute his contract, the workers like say masons, or welders are not properly trained for their jobs. They have mostly learnt their work from other workers. In my proposed education system, a mason or a welder will need to be trained by a recognised welding trainer, a plumber by a recognised plumbing trainer etc. This is because continuous imporovemnt takes place in all fields of activities. Our workers whether in organised sector or unorganised sector are far far behind in their knowledge and mastery about latest advancements in their fields. Even security guards should have training.

The above discussion is largely for workers in manufacturing and services sector. The same is needed for the agriculture sector where Indian productivity is among the lowest in the world. One reason is that majority of farmers are not educated. Farmers too need to be well educated in their area of activity, instead of trying to earn the same meaningless degree as others.

In summary, our education system should ensure the supply of highly skilled manpower in all the fields. Even cleanliness, which is considered a menial work, is a specialised work, and people who are tasked with this work need to be well trained for this work.

As I have mentioned earlier, we need to identify the aptitude of individuals and give them vocational training based on his attitude. This is what happens in advanced nations. They do not encourage mindless enrolment in colleges for taking meaningless degrees.

We need not reinvent the wheel. The kind of education system that I have suggested in already available in advanced nations. I suggest that we adopt the German education system. It is a tried and tested education system and we all are aware of German products and their quality that this education system helps produce.

Any country can have two kinds of resources- one is natural resources (mineral ores etc) and other is human resources. One will notice that a country can develop only when its human resources are developed, even if they lack natural resources. For instance, Japan, Israel, Singapore are three nations that have negligible natural resources but they are highly advanced nations thanks to their sell trained human resource. On the other hand we have examples of countries (for example African countries) that are under developed despite possessing vast mineral resources.

India fortunately is very well blessed by nature. But we have failed to make the most of our nature given resources because we have not made the most of our human resources. If we harness our human resources, we sill not only utilise them produtively, we will also be able to take advantage of what the expetts describe as our potential demographic advantage (vast majority of population of India being in working ager group, unlike most other countries).

Today (26 January 2021) we are celebrating our 71st Republic day. We have quite a few things to feel proud about on this occasion. American and British media had predicted millions of covid 19 deaths in India. India has proved them wrong. It appears that these media were watching their own countries in mirror. As on today USA and Britain continue to reel under COVID 19 epidemic, ith Britain even “pioneering” a more dangerous strain of this virus. Unlike these countries, India is even offering low cost and safer vacceines to many countries of the nation.
See this thank you message by Brazil. Makes every Indian proud.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Anjaan”(1941). “Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

One will notice that the song is from an era when India was not even independent, forget being a republic. But still this song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep who sore patriotism on his sleeves, that too in an era when it was very risky to do so. In this song, sung by Ashok Kumar and others, they exhort the naujaaan of Bharat (viz the human resource of India) to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself to them. And the song advises them not to miss this opportunity unlike the missed opportunities of the past.

Pannalal Ghosh is the music director.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala many years ago. This happens to be the 500th lyrics contribution by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog. A befitting achievement for him on the occasion of the Indian Republic day, seeing that he too, like Kavi Pradeep, wears his partiotism on his sleeve.

On this occasion, I ish a happy republic day to one and all. Jai Hind.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Mala Sinha, Biswajeet and others. It is a song that deserved to be better knon, but it ended up as an obscure song from an qually obscure movie.

Unnoticeably, ith this song, Kalyanji Anandji complete their 600th song in the blog as music directors.

Mohammed Rafi – 96th birth anniversary

—– Waqt ——-

Yeh waqt kya hai
yeh kya hai aakhir ke jo musalsal guzar raha hai
yeh jab na guzra thha
tab kahan thha
guzar gayaa hai to ab kahan hai
kahin to hogaa
kahan se aaya kidhar gayaa hai
yeh kab se kab tak ka silsilaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai
yeh waqi’ye
haadse
tasaadum
harek gham
aur har ek masarrat
har ek azziyat
har ek lazzat
har ik tabassum
har ek aansoo
har ek naghma
har ek khushboo
woh zakhm ka dard ho
ko ho lams ka jaadoo
khud apni awaaz ho ki mahaul ki sadaayen
yeh zehan mein banti aur bigadti hui fazaayen
woh fikr mein aaye zalzale hon ki dil ki halchal
tamaam ehsaas
saare jazbe
ye jaise patte hain
behte paani ki sateh par
jaise tayrte hain
abhi yehaan hain
abhi wahaan hain
aur ab hain ojhal
dikhaayi detaa nahin hai lekin
yeh kuchh to hai
jo ki beh rahaa hai
yeh kaisa dariya hai
kin pahaadon se aa rahaa hai
yeh kis samandar ko jaa rahaa hai

yeh waqt kya hai
kabhi kabhi main yeh sochtaa hoon
ki chalti gaadi se ped dekho
to aisa lagtaa hai
doosri simt jaa rahe hain
magar haqueeqat mein
ped apni jagah khade hain
to kya yeh mumkin hai
saarisadiyaan
qataar-andar-qataar apni jagah khadi hon
yeh waqt saakit ho
aur ham hi guzar rahe hon
is ek lamhe mein
saare lamhe
tamaam sadiyaan chhupi hui hon
na koyi ‘aayinda
na guzishtaa
jo ho chukaa hai
jo ho rahaa hai
jo hone waala hai
ho rahaa hai
main sochtaa hoon
ki kya yeh mumkin hai
sach ye ho
ki safar mein ham hain
guzarte ham hain
jise samajhte hain ham
guzarta hai
wo thhamaa hai
guzarta hai ye thhamaa huaa hai
ik aayi hai ye bataa huaa hai
hai munjamid
yaa pighal rahaa hai
kise khabar hai
kise pataa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

yeh kaaynaat-e-azeem
lagtaa hai
apni azmat se
aaj bhi mutma’een nahin hai
ki lamha lamha woh
wasee’a-tar aur wasee’a-tar hoti jaa rahi hai
yeh apni baahen pasaarti hai
yeh kehkashaaon ki ungliyon se
nayi khalaaon ko chhoo rahi hai
agar yeh sach hai
to har tasavvur ki had se baahar
magar kahin par
yaqeenan aisa koyi khalaa hai
ki jis ko
in kehkashaaon ki ungliyon ne
ab tak chhuaa nahin hai
khalaa
jahaan kuchh huaa nahin hai
khalaa
ki jis ne kisi se bhi ‘kun’ sunaa nahin hai
jahaan abhi tak khudaa nahinhai
wahan
koyi waqt bhi na hogaa
ye kaayenaat-e-azeem
ik din
chhuegi
is an-chhuye khalaa ko
aur apne saare wajood se
jab pukaaregi
‘kun’
to waqt ko bhi janam milegaa
agar janam hai to maut bhi hai

main sochtaa hoon
yeh sach nahin hai
ki waqt ki koyi ibtidaa hai na intehaa hai
yeh dor lambi bahot hai
lekin
kahin to is dor ka siraa hai
abhi yeh insaan ulajh rahaa hai
ki waqt ke is qafas mein
paida huaa
yahin woh palaa badhaa hai
magar use ‘ilm ho gayaa hai
ke waqt ke iss qafas se baahar bhi ik fazaa hai
to sochtaa hai
vo puchhtaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

– Javed Akhtar –

I had heard a part of the above poem and just decided to reproduce it in a post. But while typing the whole saga, it lost me on the way to the end. I am able to understand it word to word, but to understand what exactly Javedsahab is trying to say or ‘in ke kehne ka tatparya kya hai’, I will have to go deep. Or maybe not so deep and what he says is what he means.
______________________________________________

This terrible year is coming to an end. Human kind has endured a test of psychological strength this year. And has learned (hopefully) that even if places of worship are not open, the Almighty is reachable from anywhere, for the universe, the world and its occupants, owners and tenants, wheelers and dealers, the powerful and the poor, the destitute and the able bodied, are all His creations. The ‘khalaa’ that Javed Akhtar refers to in the poem above, is also the creation of the Almighty creator. So is the concept if ‘waqt’. Whether it is running away from you or towards you. The time is allotted to us, to live on this earth peacefully with other creations. Before I move on, ‘khalaa’ is space, in worldly terms is means ‘empty space’ and in celestial terms it is infinite.

Its Mohammed Rafi Sahab’s 96th birth anniversary on 24/12/2020. Usually for Rafi sahab’s anniversary posts, or for the century posts, Raja ji is invited to do the honors of writing a special post. But I am seizing the opportunity, this time round. It is Rafi Sahab birth anniversary post as well as the 3100th songs post by Rafi sahib on the blog. This post is also my 300th song post, so a special Rafi song is called for this occasion.

Two months ago, I was looking for a song by Usha Timothy to post for her birthday on 8th October. I found a song by her, but it turned out to be a group song. The audio clip was 11 minutes long. The song itself is more than 9 minutes. Myswar.com listed this as a two part song one by Suman Kalyanpur and Usha Timothy and another by Mohammad Rafi and Manna Dey. It is from the 1966 film “Sunehre Kadam” and is composed by Bulo C. Rani. The lyricist is Nyay Sharma.

This is a very special song I have come to realize it while writing the lyrics. I will have to list them so that I don’t miss any points:

1. It has the longest solo rally, for a group song by Rafi sahab and large part of this rally is with minimal music.
2. This must be the only song with these four singers together.
3. The way the repetition of lines is done throughout the song, with singing of the same line in a different way. This is especially true of Rafi sahab’s repeated lines and also Manna De’s. In Rafi sahab’s songs, invariably it can be taken for granted, that the repetition of lines will have variations.
4. The song is a like a relay race, and the one starting it is doing the winner’s lap, with the trophy.

Actually Manna De has a small part to sing but Usha Timothy is having very few lines to sing. Seeing the video was a surprise again. It is a competition sort of song with two artists performing on stage and singing is done by Agha in Rafi’s voice and Shashi Kala in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Rehman is seen standing next to Agha and enjoying his singing, so is a female standing next to Shashi Kala similarly amused by the song. The expressions of quite enjoyment on Rehman’s face can be described perfectly in one word, i. e. “Mehzooz”.

A comment on youtube said that this song based on raag zhinjhoti/maanjhkhamaj. Whether it is true or not, the song does sound unique and stand out as a song to be savoured.

These are the songs from the movie already posted in the blog :

Song Date of posting Remarks
Na baaz aayaa muqadaar mujhe mitaane se 24 June 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Naazuk hoon albeli hoon 2 August 2011 MD- S Mohinder
Maangne se jo maut mil jaati 5 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Ye ghar aapkaa hai chale aayiye jee 25 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Na to inkaar kiya na to iqraar kiya 29 October 2020 MD-Bulo C Rani

The song is like a gorgeous long meal, a smorgasbord. Mohammed Rafi sahab is singing different portions of this song, with relish. And we listeners are mesmerised. The bass of Manna Dey’s parts is in tune with Rafi sahab’s sometimes sweet, sometimes mischievous, nasheeli, some with smooth softness. We can’t actually eat this, but we consume it and our senses absorb the nuances of the song. I just wish the parts where Suman Kalyanpure and Usha Timothy are singing, could be softened a little. They bring a mesmerised person back to earth, but Rafi sahab is back again in the last part of the song, in tandem with Manna Dey and they both bring it to a level field so we are not too sorry the song has ended, and there is no more of it to be heard for the first time.

I actually looked far and wide, to find if there is still more left to be found of this song. Lyrics by Nyay Sharma are equally good and make the most of the tune of the song. But for the large parts of the song, the words were redundant I felt, it was the raag and the rhythm and soft vocal voice singing the words which became paramount. This is a rarity, as it happens only with classical raagaa’s. The only other time I can recall this happening with me, was when I heard Kumar Gandharv here .
Is this what is known as a sum total greater than its parts?

Blog Day :

4533 Post No. : 16100

So we are at it again. For the 161st time in the blog ! We arrive at post number 16100 in the blog with this writeup !

I have mentioned it in the past that we no longer look forward to these century posts with the same eagerness as in the past. This applies not only to blog centuries but also to the centuries of artists. At this moment, a good number of artists are into their ninetees. I propose to take them all up to their respective centuries after we are done with this blog century.

This post too takes up one such case. The artists in questions are Shankar Jaikishan. If some artists are in their 90s, then they are in their 990s- 999 to be precise. This post sees then break into the four figure mark. We have had singers (four) and lyricists (three) who are in fopur figures in the blog. Shankar Jaikishan join them today and become the first music directors to reach 1000 songs in the blog.

I was in quite a dimemma to pick a song for the occasion. All iconic Shankar Jaikishan songs from the golden era of HFM are altready covered. A few leftover songs of that era somehow did not fit the bill. I was looking for a special song- typically a rare song.

Finally I have zoeroed in on a song which qualifies to be called a rare song. It is not a song of 1940s or 1950s. Rather it is a song of recent vintage (by the shandards of this blog).

Moreover, this song is quite unusal in the sense that one would not guess it to be a Shankar Jaikishan song if he is not informed beforehand. One would guess it to be a song composed by Kalyanji Anandji, or R D Burman, or Bppi Lahiri, considering when this song was composed, but this song is a creation of Shankar Jaikishan, or more precisely Shankar (seeing that Jaikishan had already expired by then).

It is quite a surprise that this song did not get popular. I was very much into HFM listening those days, but even I never got to listen to this song even once ! That has to do with the fact that the movie did not do well at the box office. It was not really a surprise seeing that the movie did not star Amitabh Bachchan. The movie starred Jeetendra and Neetu Singh. Jeetendra, alongwith Sri Devi or Jaya Prada could draw crowds, but not Jeetendra and Neetu Singh, and the movie duuly flopped. The songs of this movie, including this song remained unheard by majority of music lovers.

This movie was “Chorni”(1981). I had heard about this movie but I did not consider this movie worthy of watching. So I saved my 3 Rs and 80 paise (ticket for a balcony seat) which I then spent on watching some other “worthy” movie. 🙂

“Chorni”(1981) was produced by V K Sood and directed by Jyoti Sawroop for Kesar Films, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Dr Shreeram Laagoo, Indrani Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni, Jalal Agha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Anita, Shashi Kiran, Sunil Dhawan, Sundar Taneja, Rajesh Valecha, Master Shaaka, Baby Suparna, L R Tiwari, Ramlal, Jugnu, Uma Khosla, Parveen Pal etc in it. Aruna Irani, Ajeet, Mohan Choti were also there in guest appearances.

The movie had Six songs in it.

This song, the second song from the movie to appear in the vlog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shailly Shailendra is the lyricist. Shankar (under the brandname Shankar Jaikishan) is the composer.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Helen.

Those were those of disco songs. Music director was clearly under instructions to create a Disco song. The song sounds like a song meant for those days, but it is not a disco song. It is a western style song with western orchestration allright, but it is a proper song with proper lyrics, just how it used to be in Hindi movie songs in pre disco days.

Listening to this song is a scintillating experience. I have listened to this song quite a few times. The song grabs your mindshare on the very first listen. It is not like those songs that one needs to listen to a few times before it grows on you. It grows on you immediately, even before Asha Bhonsle sings hef initial lines.

The video is over four minutes long. The audio is even longer at over six months. The singing is superb, as one expects from Asha Bhonsle. The music is quite incredible to listen to, and the music is what one remembers long after the song is over. What a song. The song may be an unusaul composition from Shankar Jaikishan. The sonbg deserves to be presented in the blog as their 1000th song in the blog.

Here is this special forgotten gem. Let us savour this song and welcome Shankar Jaikishan to the exclusive club of HFM artists who have completed their 1000 sopngs in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Our special thanks to those who haas repeatedly petitioned me. One thousandth song of Shankar Jaikishan was their long pending demand.

We are all happy that Shankar Jaikishan become the first music directors in the blog to reach four figures. In time, they could well become the first music directors whose entire set of 1200 odd HFM compositions may be showcased in the blog. we are just 200 odd songs away from that mark.

So let us celebrated blog’s 16100th post and Shankar Jaikishan’s 1000th song in the blog with this fantastic hidden gem of a song.
