With this post, the blog has now clocked thirteen thousand two hundred unique songs. It may be so that these century milestone are now an expected regularity. But then, it is these (now) minor milestones, that come together and collectively put together and characterize the larger milestones – A journey of a thousand steps is made up of a thousand steps.

Congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. This, and many, many more such milestones put together, are the entire story of this blog.  The ‘wood’ is the outspread treasure that is dear to us, and every ‘tree’ is a different fruit, different flavor. The ‘wood’ – it is our honor and pride. The ‘trees’ – each one is a feast of different flavor and listening pleasure.

As we saunter about the woods and seek to explore newer flavors, the senses want to come to explore and to taste the rare and untouched flavors. The ritual is consistent and persistent. And the wood, it is rife with trees of un-tasted flavors, some of them so rare that it is a realization and a triumph, to be able to seek them, touch them, feel them, and partake of its flavor.

It is an anniversary also that we are celebrating with this song. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a music director active whose name is simply Premnath. (Mind you, different from the actor Premnath). Today is the anniversary of the passing away of music director Premnath.

One of the mysterious and enigmatic names in the history of Hindi film music – Premnath belongs to that list of music directors who have a reasonably sized body of work spread over a good number of years; and yet, despite having a recognizable body of work, there is very little of almost nothing known about him. I have searched and checked with some of the more important sources of information relating to Hindi films and film music. But have consistently drawn a blank. Pankaj Raag in his book, ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’, has put in almost a full page to this music director. But the write up is more of a sampling of Premnath’s body of work.

Premnath was born in the town of Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), on 5th July, 1918. His education as well as training in classical music happened in Multan, Lahore and Amritsar. In his early twenties, he gravitated to the nascent Punjabi film industry and Lahore. His did act in small roles – one film identified by Pankaj Raag is ‘Shehar e Khamoshi’. The author also identifies a film ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ from 1938, in which he also sang a song.

In the first half of1940s, he got married and migrated to Bombay in search of a career in films. In 1946, he made his debut in the Bombay film industry as a music director, with the film ‘Rangbhoomi’. With a certain regularity, he would be directing the music for one to three films over a little less than a decade or so.

In 1947 came ‘Dehati’, ‘Pehla Pyaar’ and ‘Chandrahaas’. 1948 saw the release of his most discussed film, ‘Chaand Sitaare’ which carries the popular “Kaali Ghataayen Hain, Thandi Hawaaein Hain” in the voice of Mukesh. As per available information, Premnath was also the producer of ‘Chaand Sitaare’. This film also has some more notable songs in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. In 1951 came ‘Alakh Niranjan’ and ‘Maaya Machhindra’. Then there is a gap of a few years, and Premnath reappears as music director in 1959 with the religious film ‘Sati Vaishalini’. In the interim he recorded some songs for the film ‘Qaatil Kaun’, but that one remained unreleased. The career slowly fading away, he appeared as a joint music director for ‘Main Hoon Jaadugar’ (1965) with Nashaad, and for ‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ (1968) with Jimmy (James Singh).

In the few films that he has worked on, there are some notable gems as one gets to listen. The rare song being presented today, in the voice of Amirbai Karnataki Rajkumari Dubey, is a delightful composition. The words are from the pen of Rammurty Chaturvedi. Names that are obscure and unfamiliar, have come together to create a beautiful song that is a pleasure to listen to.

Song – Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen (Dehati) (1947) Singers – Rajkumari, Lyrics – Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD – Premnath

Lyrics

sharam se naina

sharam se naina
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
chori chori chupke chupke
jab shyam hamaare ghar aayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

door rahen to paas bulaaun
paas bulaaun
door rahen to paas bulaaun
paas bulaaun
paas rahen kuchh keh na paaun
keh na paaun
paas rahen kuchh keh na paaun
keh na paaun
bina kahe main samajh naa paaun
kya samjhe samjhaaun
bina kahe main samajh naa paaun
kya samjhe samjhaaun
sharam se naina
sharam se naina
o sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

jiya hamaara dag mag doley
dag mag doley
paagal mann
mann hi mann boley
main mein boley
jiya hamaara dag mag doley
dag mag doley
paagal mann
mann hi mann boley
main mein boley
bichhde shyam miley hain aa ke
kaise preet jataaun
sharam se naina
sharam se naina
ho sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina
chori chori chupke chupke
jab shyam hamaare ghar aayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

शरम से नैना

शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
चोरी चोरी चुपके चुपके
जब श्याम हमारे घर आयें
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

दूर रहें तो पास बुलाऊँ
पास बुलाऊँ
दूर रहें तो पास बुलाऊँ
पास बुलाऊँ
पास रहें कुछ कह ना पाऊँ
कह ना पाऊँ
पास रहें कुछ कह ना पाऊँ
कह ना पाऊँ
बिना कहे मैं समझ ना पाऊँ
क्या समझे समझाऊँ
बिना कहे मैं समझ ना पाऊँ
क्या समझे समझाऊँ
शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
ओ शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

जिया हमारा डगमग डोले
डगमग डोले
पागल मन मन ही मन बोले
मन में बोले
जिया हमारा डगमग डोले
डगमग डोले
पागल मन मन ही मन बोले
मन में बोले
बिछड़े श्याम मिले हैं आके
कैसे प्रीत जताऊँ
बिछड़े श्याम मिले हैं आके
कैसे प्रीत जताऊँ
शरम से नैना
शरम से नैना
हो शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना
चोरी चोरी चुपके चुपके
जब श्याम हमारे घर आयें
शरम से नैना
मोरे नैना झुक झुक जाएँ
शरम से नैना

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.

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.

Today(11 january 2017), we are celebrating two milestones on the Blog. First, Sudha Malhotra has hit her maiden century on the Blog. Second, her 100th song happens to be the 12800th song on the Blog. So this is double celebration post. Congratulations to Atulites for adding one more century to the Blog making it the 128th century.

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.

The most common milestone in this blog is the blog century milestone. We have so far had 124 of them. This writeup today marks the 125th century of the blog. In other words, this writeup is the 12500th writeup in the blog. This is a nice round figure which happend to be one fourth of 50,000 or one eighth of 1,00,000. 🙂

Our blog centuries are no longer that simple, though. We tend to combine such centuries with some more important milestones/ landmarks. This post is no exception. At the same time, this writeup could well be special because it marks quite a few special milestones, and several of them may come as surprise even to our regulars.

The saga starts in 1947. It is the runaway hit “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon Dil e Beqraar Ka” (film ‘Dard’). Not many artists can lay claim to such a meteoric debut. And also, not many can pride themselves with unbroken partnerships and associations with other artists, that have lasted for an entire lifetime.

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.
