Blog Day :

4065 Post No. : 15200 Movie Count :

4177

Most traditional Hindi movis are formula movies. The formula keeps changing with time and the movies made during that era have same stories based on the same formula with minor variations.

Once in a while we have movies based on real life events. One finds that movie makers try to convert them to a formula movie.

Movies during the early years post independence tended to be tragic movies with sad ends. No matter what the topic, the movie would still have the usual songs. So, when movies based on true life stories were made, they followed the same formula.

“Lahore”(1949) is one example, which was made on the background of partitition. Same was the case with “Nastik”(1954). These movies had lots of songs, and the characters are seen suffering most of the time.

Then in 1960s, we had “Haqeeqat”(1964), made on the background of Indo China war. This movie was based on war, but it was mostly a musical movie with lots of hit songs, and war almost getting relegated to the background.

After many decades, Indians slowly started to have some achievemments under their belts. So, accordingly, Indian movies stories became more positive where the hero was more assertive than before.

During the last few years, several movies have been made on real life events, and most of these movies are success stories.

“Dangal”(2016) was based on a real life story of a man who despite living in a male dominated society manages to turn his daughters into international wresters. It was a real life inspiring story that caught the imagination of not only Indians but also Chinese audience ! The movie did a business of over Rs 700 crores in China !

Personally I loved “Parmanu”(2018), which was based on Pokharan II, an eventthat signalled the rise of a new and assertive India, far from the days of 1962 that “Haqeeqat”(1964) depicted.

“Uri” (2019) was based on surgical strike of 2016. There were people who left no stones unturned to tell us that surgical strike did not take place, and their supporters in India asked for proof. Believers went to the movie and turned it into a box office success. This episode, like the episode described in “Parmanu” (2018) demonstated the rise on a new and assertive India which would not take things lying down if wronged and would retaliate aggressively.

A country gains self confidence when it is doing well in economy and related fields. Indian economy is doing well for the last few years and India economy is fifth largest GDP in the world. Some media houses gleefully reported that India had slipped to seventh position, but that was on december 2018. As on today, India is again 5th biggest economy, a fact that our media is hiding from us.

A country can rise up the economy ladder only if it has high quality highly educated manpower. Low quality manpower can take an economy up to certain level, but after that level, you need top class manpower to take you forward. India at present is a low middle income group nation (per capita earning in the region of $ 1000 to $ 40000 per annum). India will need to more than double its GDP and then we can hope to break into the ranks of upper middle income nations (per capita income in the region of $ 4000 to $ 12000). Final barrier is $ 12000 and a country with per capita earning above that figure becomes a high income country.

Only those countries that invest in high quality education and high quality infrastructure can break in the league of upper middle group nations and finally into higher income nations. India has a long long way to go. But India is in the right track. I can visualise India breakin into the rank of upper middle rank nations when Indian GDP reaches about $ 6 trillions. It woulkd be sometime in the next ten years.

GDP of a nation keeps climbing at a good rate only if a country is doing high quality work which can be sold all over the world. India is a world leader in high quality research products like pharmaceuticals, health services etc. These sectors will help India grow up in future. In manufacturing sector, I hope to see some interesting world class products, like say Train 18 from Indian Railways and Tejas from HAL, which will have good market worldwide, if Indian Government can plan and execute the plans well.

ISRO, Indian space agency is a shining example of what Indian manpower is capable of. ISRO has earned tremendous name and goodwill for its stellar works. It has launched many satellites of foreign advanced nations and they have played an important role in earning respect for Indian manpower. It is not for nothing that many silicon valley big wigs are people of Indian origin.

“Mission Mangal”(2019) is based on ISRO’s mangalyaan expedition. With this mission, ISRO succeeded in sending its spacecraft (mars orbiter) to Mars successfully in thhe very first attempt, and they did it on a shoe string budget.

The movie “‘Mission Mangal” (2019) is jointly produced Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions, Fox Star Studios, Aruna Bhatia, and Anil Naidu and directed by Jagan Shakti. The movie has Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, H. G. Dattatreya, Vikram Gokhale, and Sonakshi Sinha etc in it.

When this mission had actually taken place, social media was abuzz with a photograph that showed a few homely housewife looking ladies who were in reality ISRO scientists and who had played important roles in the success of the mission. The makers of this movie have been greatly influenced by this fact. The movie shows lots of female power in the movie.

The story , based on real life ISRO stories, starts by showing failure of a GSLV launch on December 25, 2010 due to an error of judgement by project director Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan). Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) takes the responsibility of the failure on himself. As a punishment posting, he is hunted out to “Mangalyaan” mission, a mission no one has much hopes on.

Maenwhile Tara Shinde too gets herself transferred to Mangalyaan project and she has some idea about how this project can be successfully executed. Rakesh Dhawan and Tar Shinde convince the ISRO head (Vikram Gokhale) to support them by budget and staff. Budget is limited and keeps getting reduced, and the manpower asked in not what was needed. They end up with rookie scientists like Eka Gandhi (Sonakshi Sinha)the propulsion control expert, who is dying to leave ISRO and join NASA as soon as possible, spacecraft autonomy designer Neha Siddiqui (Kirti Kulhari ) whose second name causes raised eyebrows when she is looking for rented accomodation, navigation expert Krittika Agarwal (navigation expert) who has great difficulty learning to drive a car. Her husband is in Army who gets injured in an accident. Satellite designer and payload expert Varsha Pillai (Nithya Menon) has a nagging mother in law at home who taunts her for being childless.

There are two male scientists too. Astrology believing Parmeshwar Joshi (Sharman Joshi) is told by his astrologer that his “Mangal” is bhaari and that is why he is unable to get married. No wonder he is reluctant to join the mission. Then there is Anant Ayengar (H G Dattatreya) who is one year short of retirement and is already counting days.

How Rakesh Dhawan and Tara Shinde get their team to deliver and how successfully deal with major hurdles constitutes the story. While there are some critics who have found lots of weaknesses and holes in the story, I loved the movie. I find the episodes quite entertaing. When Rakesh Dhawan first goes to the mangalyaan area of ISRO, he finds that vacant and without any sings of life. Then he finds a matka with water in it. So there is water in mars- he observes. Then a cat enters the hall. So, there is life in Mars, he concludes.

The movie is based on a real life story, so we all know what hexactly happened. Still the movie keeps you glued to your seat. And it gives you goosebumps when the rocket lifts off from its launch pad.

This is a movie only Indians could have made and only Indians could have identfied with. I am happy that a movie was made on this subject. The makers have done the best they could have. insteda of finding faults (like what some people have done) I take it as glass half full and I enjoyed th movie. I think that most Indians who like to be positive about their lives and about their country will enjoy this movie.

The movie has three songs in it. My personal favourite is the theme song. The lyrics of this song are by Amitabh Bhattacharya and he has indulged in some interesting word play in this song. The song is sung by Benny Dayal , Vibha Saraf and others. Music is composed by Amit Trivedi.

This song happens to be the 15200th song in the blog. It is the first time that this blog has a new song from the current year as the century song. I think this song fully deserves it. It is a song that I loved from the vey fist time I heard it and watched it.

These days we have two actors who are competing for making movies on nationalistic subjects. One is Akshay Kumar and another is John Abraham. I had loved John Abraham’s “Parmanu”(2018) and I loved Akshay Kumar’s “Mission Mangal”(2019). In 1960s and 1970s, we had Manoj Kumar making patriotic movies. Today we have John Abraham and Akshay Kumar. There is one cartoon which shows the two of them grabbing each other by their collars, arguing about who should take up which nationalistic story next. Then there is another cartoon showing Akshay Kumar with P M Modi. Modi tells Akshay Kumar-“Keep making movies, I will keep giving you story ideas.” It must be said that the story idea for Article 370 is something that a Frederick Forsyth or Leon Uris would have been proud to write.

So, here is the 15200 th song for the blog. It must be one of the most unnoticed century post occasion which apparently no one was looking forward to, including even I myself. Nevertheless, the needful needs to be done. So we are now 15200 song post old with this writeup. I take this opportunity to thank all our visitors and well wishers for their continued encouragement and support. May we keep scoring many more centuries in future.

With this song, “Mission Mangal”(2019) makes its debut in the blog.

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.

Blog Day : 3877 Post No. : 14900

I began “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” early this year. As many as ten songs are covered in this series so far. Three other regulars (viz M/s Avinash Scrapwala, Sadanand Kamath and Sudhir Ji) have also chipped in with their articles in this series. In this series, we cover a song from a movie whose song (some other song obviously) was covered in the blog ten years ago on the same day.

There were days when no movies were eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” because all the songs covered on that day ten years ago had been YIPPEED by now.

I also noticed that those days in 2009 saw as many as six or seven songs being covered daily. That is in such sharp contrast to the present scene in 2019 where we are barely averaging one song daily thus finally living up to the blog name of “song a day”. 🙂

It basically tells us that a lot of things change in ten years. I was ten years younger in 2009. The blog too was just a few months old and I had a kind of passion and motivation for the blog that I now find impossible to summon for myself.

In one’s younger days, one is not as much in control of one’s life (professional as well as personal) as one becomes later in life. With time, one rises up the ladder in profession life. Simultaneously, ones kids also grow up.

In short, one feels far less in control of one’s life in one’s younger days. Still, that is compensated by youthful energy, passion and motivation. With time, one gains control of one’s life but begins to lose on the gifts of youthful energy, passion and motivation. 🙂

Despite being less in control of my life, I still had time and energy for online activities (which was something new those days). After spending nearly four years in various cricket forums (2004-2008), I began to try my hand in blogging in 2008. This blog was my second blog. My first blog was also related to HFM and associated topics and the articles in that blog were quite exhaustive and time consuming to write. If that blog was like test match, then this song blog was like ODI. 🙂 Much easier and less time consuming. 🙂

Just like ODI is more popular than test cricket, the song blog became popular whereas the other original blog fell by the way side. I posted fifty articles in that blog and then totally stopped updating that. That blog is now lying neglected, with the last post appearing nearly ten years ago in august 2009.

I found posting in the song blog a breeze, that is why I was able to cover six to seven songs everyday in the blog.

That was then ! Today, ten years later, even posting one song a day seems like too much work. Curiously, I had far more workload on me in professional and personal fronts ten years ago. Today I am almost in full control on both fronts. Still my present blog post productivity has taken a major hit. 🙂

There are reasons for that, of course. One reason could be that I posted with an uncluttered mind, like how Sehwag used to bat with an uncluttered mind. In fact, I recall Raja commenting those days that the blog centuries were coming at Sehwag like rate (viz in 14 to 15 days). 🙂

Another cricket concept that we have in the blog is dot day, like how there are dot balls in cricket. The blog more or less lived upto its aim of posting songs everyday come rain or shine, festivals or holidays. But still there are unavaoidable circumstances due to which there have been no posts on certain days. We call those days as dot days for the blog.

When I look at the dot days in the blog, I find that the year 2008 (when this blog began), there were three dot days, viz. 22 sep, 23 sep and 25 september. 2009, the first full year for the blog had as many as 25 dot days. Year 2010 saw a whopping 61 dot days. Year 2011 had 36 dot days.

Situation “improved” in 2012 with only 5 dot days whereas 2013 saw 7 dot days.

Next three years were bad. 2014 had 27, 2015 had 22 and 2016 had 22 dot days.

Amazingly, 2017 was a year with ZERO dot days. So there was a post every day in the year 2017. What an achievement for the blog that year, though I was not aware of it till a few days back.

2018 saw 7 dot days.

So far every day of 2019 has seen at least one post in the blog.

So overall there have been 215 dot days out of 3877 days that the blog has been in existence.

I mentioned above that 2009 had 25 dot days. The first dot day of 2009 was this day ten years ago, viz 28 february 2009.

Now, I would not like today to be a day without posts as part of my ten year challenge. 🙂 It only means that today is a day when blog ten year challenge cannot take place. 🙂

Today 28 february 2019 is the last day of the month. It is the day of clearing hisaab, viz that of milkman etc. It is also the day when many people whose birthday falls in the month superannuate if it was their 60th birthday.

It is a good time for the blog to notch another century, viz century number 149, in other words song post number 14900. This century has taken a glacial 72 days to arrive. The century must have been slow , but looking at the bright side, there was no dot day during these 72 days. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion is from “Shyam Tere Kitne Naam”(1977). This movie was produced by Vinod Kumar and A Narang and directed by Shantilal Soni. The movie had Sachin, Sarika, Meena T, Manhar Desai, Bharat Bhooshan, Shyama, Jalal Agha, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

The song under discussion is sung by Hemlata. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The song is picturised on Sarika and Sachin, who were a hit jodi of low budget movies in 1970s (mostly produced by Rajshree Productions).

This song marks the birth anniversary of Ravindra Jain (28 february 1944-9 October 2015). This song also happens to be the 100th song of Ravindra Jain in the blog as a music director. So Ravindra Jain becomes the latest centurion in the blog. He is the 36th music director and the 87th artist overall to have one hundred (or above) of his songs showcased in the blog.

As always, I thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement which keeps fuelling the blog which in turn continues to chug on and on relentlessly in its musical journey.


Song-Aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha (Shyaam Tere Kitne Naam)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
ho ho
ho ho
aaa aaa
hmm hmm

aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna
mere man ki lagi man mein rahi
ab saajna aa aa
main boloongi
main boloongi main boloongi
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna

dabe dabe bol mere geet ke
ho meri dhadkan se hotho pe aa gaye
piya mera jiya tum jeet ke
ho mere jeewan pe suraj se chha gaye
lagne lagi duniya nayi
lagne lagi duniya nayi
tumhi tumhi tumhi
meri ankhiyon ko bha gaye
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna
mere man ki lagi
man mein rahi
ab sajna aa aa aa
main boloongi main boloongi main boloongi
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna

bujhe bujhe deep jale saanwre
ho naye sukh jaage
dukh saare so gaye
mili naye sapnon ki chaaaw re
mere din kitne rangeen ho gaye
aansu bhare wo pal mere
aansu bhare wo pal mere
yahin kahin yahin kahin
abhi abhi kho gaye
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna
mere man ki lagi man mein rahi
manmohana aa aa aa

aaj tak jo kaha tune kaha

bandhi bandhi nadi meri preet ki
ho dekho chal di kinaare tod ke
baanh mili man chaahe meet ki
ho tere rang rangi jag saara chhod ke
tumse mili to jee uthhi
tumse mili to jee uthhi
nahin nahin jaana nahin
kabhi mukh mod ke
aaj tak jo kaha tumne kaha
aaj tak jo suna maine suna
mere man ki lagi man mein rahi
ab saajna aa aa aa
main boloongi
main boloongi main boloongi

Blog Day : 3805 Post No. : 14800

There was a time when Blog century used to be so common that there used to be as many as two such occasions every month. How times have changed. Now we have one blog century in two months !

Song post number 14600 was covered on August 2018. Next song post number 14700 was covered on 17 october 2018. Now more than two months (62 days) later, at a strike rate of less than two songs a day, now we reach song post number 14800 !

I am not able to specifically pinpoint the reasons for this slow progress. There may be several reasons. One reason could be that I have become “busy”. I would summarily reject this reason. I am not busy any more than what I was during 2011 and 2012 when the blog saw centuries every 16 days. I still recall some music lovers complaining that theere were far too many song notifications every day spamming the inboxes of the subscribers. 🙂 And curiously enough, I used to think that the number of songs being posted those days was rather low. 🙂

One reason for slow progress these days coould be because we have become rather conscious of “records”, unlike the case in the past. During 2011 and 2012, we were not conscious about YIPPEE movies, debutant movies, count of songs in the movie etc. Yhose were simple days when we just covered songs as they occured to us, with far less planning. Today, considerable time is taken up in deciding which song to cover. Since so many thousands of songs have already been covered, searching for songs to cover also takes time now a days. So many songs from yesteryears have been covered that every new song that we discuss from those years appears like a gold dust to me. Unlike in the past, we rarely discuss songs composed by Naushad, Shankar Jaikishan, O P Nayyar, S D Burman etc mainly because bulk of the songs of these composers have already been covered and we are now scraping the bottom of the barrel, as far as remaining songs of these composers are concerned.

Same is the case for singers like say Mukesh, Talat Mehmood, Suraiyya etc. Bulk of songs sung by them have already been covered. In case of K l Saigal and Suraiyya, we have covered each and every song that is available.

During the early days of the year 2018, our new year resolution of covering one debutant song and ne YIPPEE song daily was adhered to with great discipline for the first four months before this resolution had to be abandoned.

Though we in the blog seem less prolific this days, but that is more than compensated by the research work related to HFM that goes on in the background. The well researched articles full of difficult to find information that our inhouse researchers, Mr Arunkumar Deshmuh and Mr Sadanand Kamath regularly come up with have added considerably to our knowledge of forgotten artists and movies of the past. Mr Sudhir Kapur has been digging up forgotten movies of 1960s, some of them so obscure that no details were known about them till they were discussed here. So, we many have slowed down in number of posts, but the quality of posts by our inhouse research scholars remains as high as ever.

Peevesie’s mom, despite being busy, heroically comes up with articles on the occasion of anniversaries of artists and also blog regulars. Regulars like Prakashchandra, Avinash Scrapwala, Mahesh Mamadapur etc silently keep adding value to the blog. So we continue to forge ahead, even if at a slow pace than before

Whenever we discuss a blog century song, we try to combine it with some other special occasion. This blog century post number 13800 is no different. We combine this article with the blog century of an artist. With this song, lyricist Yogesh completes one hundred songs in the blog.

I have gone through the filmography of Yogesh. Here I present the full filmography of Yogesh. This should serve as a ready reference as far as the HFM career of Yogesh is concerned.

I request reders to point out errors/ omissions in the filmography so that it can be made better and more compelete.

Coming to the song under discussioon, the song is from “Mazaaq”(1975). This by now forgotten movie was directed by Kumar for Indira Films Bombay. The movie had Vinod Mehra, Mausami Chatterji, Aruna Irani, Ifthikhar, Mehmood, Mridula, Bhagwan, Kanhaiyyalal, Agha, Keshto Mukherji, Mukri, Ridku, Shakeel, Ratan Gaurang, Gopal Mukherji, Samar Roy, V Gopal, Viju Khote, Asrani etc in it. The movie had guest appearances by Shubha Khote, Ravi Ghosh, Paintal, and special appearances by Basu Chatterji and S Ramnathan.

This movie had only two songs in it. First song is covered in the past.

Here is the second and final song from “Mazaaq”(1975) to appear in the blog. The song is a two part song. Part one is sung by Mohammed Rafi and it is lip synced by Vinod Mehra. Part II is a duet which is sung by Mohammed Rafi and Mehmood. It is picturised on Vinod Mehra and Mehmood. The song can be described as the title song as well as “advice” song.

Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I vaguely remember having heard this song and then I forgot all about this song. It was only while searching for this song and playing it that I realised that I had last heard this song more than four decades ago ! Needless to state that I had no clue about the details of this song.

In a way, this forgotten gem of a song is a song fit to be covered as a special song in the blog.

With this song, the blog ticks one more landmark. Let us hope that this musical bandwagon, whicgh is moving at a slow pace will soon gain some momentum and will hopefully pick up the speed of train 18, if not bullet train. 🙂

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and well wishes are the fuel on which this music bandwagon feeds.

Blog Day : 3743 Post No. : 14700

Those who have followed cricket for as long as I have, old time cricket followers may recall that test cricket centuries used to be quite rare. One test Indian batsman managed to score one test century in one test series then it waas considered a major cricketing achievement. One Indian cricketer scoring more than one test century in a test series was a rarity. It was quite a rarity indeed when Sunil Gavaskar scored as many as four test centuries in one test series, and that too his debut series.

It was three years later that Gavaskar would score his next test century in 1974. After that he did not look back snce and went on to make a record breaking 34 test centuries. Subsequently we have another little master, namely Sachin Tendulkar who rewrote that hrecord by scoring more than 50 test centuries and more than one hundred internationa centuries.

In olden days, we often found batsmen batting quite slowly and taking almost one full day to score a century. Mudassar Nazar of Pakistan took 557 minutes to score a test century in 1977-78 against England. He faced 419 balls to reach his century. In contrast, we had someone like Virender Sehwag who scored a triple century against South Africa in 278 deliveries.

We in this blog also regularly score centuries of posts. We have had 146 such centuries so far. quite a few of these centuries have been Sehwag like when 100 posts were completed in 16 days or even less. Such fast centuries have been described as Sehwag like by our regulars- such as Raja.

On the other end of the scale, sometimes our centuries have been painfully slow, like Chris Tavare or Mudassar Nazar. We “fondly” remember both because they often found it easy to showcase their “talent” against India.

This post is the 14700th song post for the blog or in other words this post marks the 147th century for the blog. This century has come at a Mudassar Nazar like rate. It has taken us as many as 53 days to reach this century.

This song is a rare song from “Fariyaadi”(1953).

“Fariyaadi”(1953) was produced and directed by Habib Sarhadi for Habib Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehman, Shakuntala, Mirza Musharraf, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Ramesh Thakkar, Parvati Devi, H Prakash, Devraj, Sadiq, Krishn, Chaandni, Qamar, Jankidas, Shanta Kunwar, Manju, Minni etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs from the movie has been covered in the past.

This song, the third song from “Fariyaadi”(1953) to appear in the blog is sung by Rafi. Muzaffar Orkazai is the lyricist. Music is composed by B N Bali.

This song is a rare song, that few people may have heard before. And we have chosen this song as the 14700thsong for a special reason. This song happens to be the 29th century of Rafi in the blog. In other words, Rafi now has as many as 2900 songs in the blog, just 100 songs short of the magical 3000 songs mark.

Instead of taking more time than what has already been consumed while reching this century, I decided to just get on with this century without much fanfare so that we can concentrate of future posts. So here is this post that combines blog century number 147 with Rafi century number 29.

So here we are, to yet another landmark, without much fanfare. I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their support and encouragement. We have come a long way and we still have lots of songs yet to be covered. This post gives us an opportunity to take fresh guard and get down to the task of covering more songs from the teasure of HFM.


Song-Jal jal ke shama ki tarah fariyaad na karna (Fariyaadi)(1953) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Muzaffar Orkazai, MD-B N Bali

Lyrics

Jal jal ke shama ki tarah fariyaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna

mushqil hai bahut pyaar ki duniya ko basaana
bedard zamaane ka tareeqa hai puraana
do pyaar bhare dil kabhi aabaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna
Jal jal ke shama ki tarah fariyaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna

aakaash ki choti pe mahal hamne banaaya
duniya se bahut door jahaan apna basaaya
kismat ne magar chaaha hamen shaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna
Jal jal ke shama ki tarah fariyaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna

ab apne khayaalon mein mujhe tum na basaana
bhoole se kabhi tum mere sapnon mein na aana
gar dil mein uthhe dard to fariyaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna
Jal jal ke shama ki tarah fariyaad na karna
main yaad bhi aaun to mujhe yaad na karna

Blog Day : 3651 Post No. : 14500

With well over fourteen thousand plus songs and counting, blog century post is a keenly looked forward to occasion for the blog. It signifies the achievement of yet another century for the blog.

With this song, we achieve one more century for the blog, namely century number 145. In other words, this post is song post number 14500 for the blog.

Under normal circumstances, a century landmark is often the main show in the blog, but this time it finds itself relegated to the status of a sideshow. The blog is completing ten years of its existence in a couple of days from now, and we are all concentrating on that mega event. It is like a grand wedding coming up in a family that everyone is concentrating on and they miss the fact that a kid in the family had just won a seat in a prestigious college. On another day, it would be a grand occasion, but it gets ignored on a occasion like this.

Well, a century is a century, as our respected Sunil Gavaskar never fails to remind us. 🙂 And that is indeed the case. No century comes easy in this blog. This century has been toughgoing. This time duration of 41 days for this century had as many as four dot days including two dot days in a row, which is quite unusual for the blog. A late surge for the last few days, driven by entusiasm for the forthcoming 10th anniversary date sees us clocking a good number of posts (26) in the last six days. It looks like lightening pace by present days standard of the blog, but believe me, it would have regarded as ultra slow in olden days of yore (2011-12) when we averaged 6 to 7 songs in a day and some less enthusiastic music lovers would request us to go slow on our postings. 🙂

Coming to the song, this song, like most blog century songs, richly deserves this honour. This song is a qawwaali. Those music lover who are fans of qawwaali would know what a good qawwaali means. It means a song lasting more than seven or eight minutes and still music lovers not realising how this time flies away. Typical HFM qawwaalis has nok-jhonk between the two genders, where the lead singer of each genders has chorus to lend support to them. The lyrics of these qawwaalis are , to my mind the real stars of this genre of song. The words, word plays, the taunts, the jokes that form part of the qawwaali are hard hitting as well as amusing.

The qawwaali under discussion is from “Jungle Princess”(1958). It is an obscure song from an obscure movie. This movie was directed by A R Zameendaar for Navshakti Films, Bombay. This costume drama (veshbhoosha pradhan film) had Kamran, Shanta Kumari (Neeru), Baburao, Indira, Habeeb, Leela Gupte, Janibabu Qawwaal, Shakila Bano, Fazal, Neelofar, Amina, Sheikh, Funny Walker etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Full details are known only for one song, viz for the song under discussion. Singers of other songs are not known though it is mentioned in HFGK that Mubarak Begam and Jaani Babu qawwaal were the singers in the movie.

Here is this qawwaali for “Jungle Princess”(1958). It is sung by Mubarak Begam and Jaani Babu qawwaal, assisted by female and male chorus. The great lyrics are by Aziz Ghaazi. Music is composed by the duo of Bipin Mehboob.

The song is a forgotten gem. One expects a qawwaali to contain only heavey duty Persian/ Urdu stuff but it is a “modern” qawwaali far ahead of its time (1958) and it contains English words in it as well. 🙂

1958! So this qawwaali was created exactly 60 years ago !

Here is this fantastic qawwaali from “Jungle Princess”(1958) as the 14500th song in the blog. Only the audio of the song is available. Video would have been available had the movie done well like say “Al Hilal”(1958) which had also come in the same year and whose iconic qawwaali had become the 5000th song in the blog back in 2011 !

Only the audio is available and let us be thankful for that. My guess is that this song was picturised on Shaikila Babo Bhopali and Jani Babu Qawwaal.

With this song, “Jungle Princess”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.

This song also serves as a tribute to Mubarak Begam whose remembrance day falls tomorrow (18 july 2018). We will pay our tribute to her tomorrow as well with some more of her great songs. For now, here is this 14500th song in the blog. As always, I thank one and all for their continued support for a decade (it will be a decade two days from now). It had been a reat journey. We had achieved 145 centuries in this one decade. Let us see what the future has in store for us. Just how many more centuries do we have in store and in how many more years. Let us take it one song at a time like how we have done so far and who knows where we may end up with. It has been a great one decade for me as well as the fellow travellers of this musical bandwagon. Let this musical bandwagon continue to roll on and on !

And now, please listen to this song. If you are like me, you may find yourself listening to this song again and again. And that is what I am doing at this moment as I type out these finishing lines of this article.

Blog Day : 3610 Post No. : 14400

When you are young, you take many of your gifts for granted. Only when you lose those gifts that you start mising them. For instance, I took my eyesight for granted for nearly fifth years. I had perfect 6/6 vision for much of my life, but now I cannot read without glasses.

To take another telling example, I was an indefatiguable runner in my younger days. I could run around for hours without running out of breath. But today I cannot even run ten metres, forget running 1500 metres in around five minutes that I was capable of during my younger days.

Forget comparing my present self with my past younger self of 35 years ago. When I compare the blog strike rate today with the blog strike rate of six years ago, I find a similar loss of agility. 🙂 During 2011 and 2012, we were clocking 100 songs every 16 days, and sometimes even faster. These days, we have become like a potbellied elderly person who can barely move. Our blog centuries these days are taking more than 30 days each. The previous century took exactly one month viz 31 days.

If one thought that we could not get any slower, then you need not look any further. This post is post number 14400 for the blog and it has taken 43 days ! I sincely hope that it is the last of such snail paced centuries and we would pick up some decent pace from now onwards.

This century post has taken almost an eternity to arrive and it will appear in the dying moments of the day (night), which means readers of the blog may not get much time to read it before the next post appears first thing in the morning.

This century post, like most of our century posts combines several landmarks, and some of these landmarks are “artificial” but real. Did I just use an oxymoron like say happily married ? 🙂

Let me count the special occasions that this song combines. This song is from a 1957 movie called “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This movie was directed by Jaswant jhaweri for Dinesh Films Bombay. This “historical” movie had Nirupa Roy, Jairaj, Ram singh, Al Nasir, Ramesh sinha, Sundar, Murad, Rajkumar, Shree Bhagwan, Ramlal, Sapru, Shyam Lal, Pandey, R S dubey, Devchand, Yashodhara Katju, Ratnamala, Heera, Helen, Veena. Guest artist-Minu Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had 12 songs in it and the song under discussion is the first song from the movie. In other words, “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957) makes its debut in the blog. It is no ordinary debut though. As many as 113 movies were released in 1957. 99 of these movies were represented in the blog so far. So this movie is the 100th movie of 1957 to find representation in the blog !

There is another even more impressive number coming up ! The decade of 1950s (from 1951 upto 1960) saw 1111 movies getting released. 999 of these movies have been covered in the blog so far. So, ladies and gentlemen, this movie happens to be the 1000th movie of 1950s to get showcased in the blog ! We now have just 111 more movies of 1950s left to be covered in the blog. Of course songs of many of these movies may not be available. But that is for the future.

For now, let us enjoy this lovely duet from “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and chorus. It is a dance song performed in a raj darbaar. I am unable to identify the actors performing the dance. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sanmukh Babu.

With this song, we now reach the landmark of 14400th song in the blog. We are just five weeks short of completing ten years of the blog which would be a REAL achievement for the blog. There would be nothing “artificial” in that massive landmark that will arrive soon.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement. I hope that the blog will pick up some real steam in the coming days and we will not only regain our glory days but hopefully exceed them as well.

This song is the 14300th song post in the blog.

Blog Day : 3567 Post No. : 14300

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part II-Chaand Pardesi
—————————-

If one thinks that posting “blog century” songs is quite a straight forward matter then think again. Though we have posted as many as 142 blog century posts, hardly any of them were easy picks. I had to think hard and long before finding songs befitting the occasion.

As the number of centuries mounted, we began to combine those blog centuries with other special occasions, viz. artist century, contributor century, artist anniversaries etc.

The post under discussion marks the 143rd century for the blog. In other words, it is the song post number 14300 for the blog.

I just mentioned that selecting “blog century” songs is not a trivial matter. Let me describe the thought process/ behind the scene activities that took place before I settled on this particular song as the “blog century” song.

First thing first. I had made up my mind that I would author this post. The reason was simple. I realised that our other contributors, including the usual century author Sudhir Jee were hard pressed for time these days. So I decided that I needed to write this post.

Many of our special posts including century posts have tended to appear towards the midnight, which may be prime time for TV but not for the blog. Blog prime time is day time on a weekday, so I made up my plan that this article should appear by morning today (24 april 2018) which happens to be tuesday.

When the day began, the tally of posts stood at 14297, so it meant that three posts needed to be posted, including two posts prior to the century post.

Did I have any song in mind for the “blog century” post ?

Yes, I had. It was a rare song, and quite a remarkable song. I had discovered this song a few months ago and I had noted down its lyrics as well. It was a long song and noting down the lyrics took a good amount of time. I had earmarked this song as a special song, to be covered as a “blog century” post or any such occasion.

This song had another qualification. I had begun my series of Rafi songs called (Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song. I had begun this series by aiming to cover those music directors who composed just one song with Rafi. I had decided that these songs would be special occasion songs in the blog. The first (and so far only) song in the series was composed by Arun Raghavan. I had combined this song to mark several special occasions, viz. that song was the 2800th Rafi song in the blog and the movie, which got introduced in the blog with the song was the 3800th movie covered in the blog.

My planned song that I had earmarked also fitted the same bill. It was also the only Rafi song composed by that music director.

With time, I realised that this song could be combined to mark another extremely rare occasion which few regulars may be able to guess. It could become the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog !

So I had silently made sure that the tally of Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had gradually inched upto the 499 mark in the blog. 🙂

So, when the time arrived to post the 14300th song article, I had every thing covered. Or that is what I thought.

When I began to search for this song in my hard disk, I was unable to locate it. I had noted down its lyrics spending several hours. I was sure it was there somewhere but where ? I managed to locate the video in my hard disk but not the lyrics.

OK, I will have to note the lyrics again, I thought.

When I began to listen to the song, I received another jolt. This song that I was remembering as a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had another voice in it. So my carefully laid plans got thrown out of the window immediately.

What to do now ? Now I needed to search for songs composed by other composers who worked with Rafi in just one song. This list is fortunately very much there in my excel sheet, and show I immediately began to search for Rafi songs composed by these one Rafi song composers.

The songs that I located were just solo Rafi songs, and they somehow did not sound worthy of being the blog century song. Nevertheless, one such Rafi song, after repeated listening began to grow upon me and I decided that this song was going to be the song for the occasion. So I noted down the lyrics of the song.

On just a whim, I decided to check up another solo Rafi song composer. And guess what ? This song was very much a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet !

When I listened to the song, I realised that it was an suitable replacement for the song that I had originally planned and which turned out to have more than two voices.

So, I got a song which was the only occasion when this music director got to utlise Rafi’s voice in his compositions. And this song happens to be the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog.

This song in question is from a forgotten movie called “Ban Maanush”(1979). It was directed by Kamram Khan for O K Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Padma Khanna, Kamran, Uma Dhawan, Mohan Choti, Sundar, Ratan Mala, Monal, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Hamid Khan, Sawan, Chaachi, Sabir, Ramjanam singh, Danny Junior (new discovery), Jagdep (special appearance) etc in it.

“Ban Maanush”(1979) had three songs in it. This song under discussion is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. So “Ban Maanush”(1979) makes its debut with this rare and special song.

The video of this song is very much available. One can see that the song is picturised as a qawwaali song where a gentleman and a lady assisted by their respective teams of chorus sing this song.

Good qawwaali’s in Hindi movies always have great lyrics in them. And this qawwaali is no exception. Farooque Kaiser is done very well in penning the lyrics of this song. Music is composed by Chaand Pardesi.

Qawwaali is one genre of song where picturisation plays as important a role as the lyrics is savouring and enjoying the song. The saying “the song is better heard than seen” does not apply to qawwaalis.

Qawwaalis were normally seen in muslim social movies. In these movies, qaawwaali are one occasion where the two genders are seen interacting with each other in full public view. It is one occasion where the two genders openly use amorous terms and the public (otherwise quite conservative) do not mind. I think this kind of qawwaalis have been invented in Hindi movies and I do not think amir Khusro, the creator of Qawwaali might have imagined that the qawaalis would serve this pupropse, viz helping the two genders (who otherwise remain segregated) to interact with each other and express their feelings with each other.

To help avoid embarrassment that may result if one a male and a female were to sing the song, the lead singers are supported by friends of the same gender to lend moral support by singing in chorus.

Another thing that one notices in these filmy qawwaalis are that the lyrics of this songs are quite liberal and broadminded and not at all conservative and narrow minded. One is readily reminded of the epic qawwaali of “Barsaat Ki Raat”(1960) that covers lots and lots of topics viz. Krishna, Radha, Meera, Buddha, Maseeh etc.

The qawwaali under consideration is a nice “expression of love” genre of qawwaali. I can see that Padma Khanna lip syncs in Asha Bhonsle’s song, but I am unable to identify the gentleman who lip syncs in Rafi’s voice.

This qawwaali is a forgotten gem from my college days which I had never heard before.

In summary, here are the salient features of this song post:-

1. This song is the only Rafi song that music director Chaand Pardesi composed in his career. And what a superb song it is. This article is our way of honouring the one Rafi song music director Chaand Pardesi.

2. This song is the 500th duet song sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. What to say about this feat. These two legends have easily sung the most number of duets songs ever. I have not yet counted the number of duets sung by them, but I have read an estimate this puts this figure to over 800 ! The second most prolific duet singing pair happens to be Rafi-Lata pair. They are a “distant” second with “just” 400 plus duets. 🙂

3. This song is the 14300th song of the blog. The previous blog century was achieved on 23 march 2018. So this century has taken 32 days.

There was a time when we used to clock centuries in 16 days. We may have slowed down, and in the course of this century we even had a dot day, but at least the musical bandwagon is still on the move. And this matters a lot.

We are on the verge of several landmarks in addition to the usual blog century landmarks. Lots of artists are closing in to their century and multiple century marks. Even a regular contributor is stuck on 199 (hint ! hint ! 🙂 ). So there are lots of exciting and interesting events ahead of us.

When one considers this series (pal do pal ka saath), this was only the second episode. There are more music directors with justone Rafi song to their credit. Their time would also come and we will honour them too with similar special write ups.

As for now, I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support for nearly ten years. That reminds me, we are on the verge of completing ten years in another four months. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue to roll on and on and in the process we will find ourselves acquainted with lots and lots of great musical gems, and some of them for the first time.

This special song may well be the first time many of our music lovers will get to listen to this song. Here is this wonderful song from the golden era of HFM. Enjoy !

Blog Day : 3535 Post No. : 14200

Yesterday (22 march 2018), the blog was having a dot day till about 8 PM and then three articles were published just as the day was getting over, duly taking care of the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie for the day. Today (23 march 2018), we have had four songs discussed already, and that covers the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie.

But we are not done for the day. People have not noticed that we are onto another landmark. These days we mention the post number in the beginning of the post. The last article had its post number as 14199. So the next article has to be the net century post for the blog, viz post number 14200.

This century post occasion must be the most uneventful as well as the most underprepared century post. I was not sure about the song I was going to pick for the occasion till very late. I thought that I had chosen the song. But that song got changed in the afternoon. In the evening that song got changed again. This song, the 14200th song for the blog will appear at around 11 PM IST, after being finalised at about 8 PM ! In fact I discovered this song and heard it for the first time at 8 PM !

I had decided that this century post would cover a song penned by Kaifi Azmi. so the songs that I kept chosing and changing were all penned by Kaifi Azmi.

It was yesterday evening that I had decided on Kaifi Azmi as the artist to feature for the century song. So I began to research on the songs of Kaifi Azmi. I found, much to my surprise that the list of all songs penned by Kaifi Azmi is not available online, unlike the case for many other artists. Kaifi Azmi has an official site but I found that site a half hearted attempt and there I could not find what I was looking for.

So I spend my time from yesyterday evening till this evening compiling the list of all Kaifi Azmi songs that he has penned in HFM. I arrived at a figure of 351 songs from 88 movies. I was under the impression that Kaifi Azmi was on 199 in the blog and so I was hoping that this song would combine blog century will Kaifi Azmi’s 200th song in the blog. But I found that my earlier calcutaion was incorrect. Kaifi Azmi is on 189 and not quite 199. Nevertheless, now I have a fairly good idea about Kaifi Azmi’s output in Hindi movies.

I find that the music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi worked could be broadly categorised in two categories- First category was those who were lovers of urdu. Second category were those who did not have command over Hindi/ Urdu but they realised the value of a good lyricist.

In the first category, we have music directors like Madan Mohan, Ghulam Mohammad, Khayyam, Jaidev, A R Qureshy, Pt Lachchiram, O P Nayyar, Roshan etc etc. Kaifi Azmi worked with Madan Mohan in 14 movies, which is the highest number of movies for him with one music director. On the other end of the spectrum, he worked with Roshan and O P Nayyar in just one song each. The first song in the blog was sole Roshan composition that Kaifi Azmi penned. So this blog was starged with a rare song though it was not realised at that time. 🙂

The only O P Nayyar composition that was penned by Kaifi Azmi was the lilting title song of “Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi” (1966).

The other category of music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi was associated in HFM were those who had poor command over Hindi/ Urdu. They were mostly Bangla speakers. But what compositions they created with Kaifi Azmi. This category of music directors include names like S D Burman, Hemant Kumar, Kamal Mitra, Bappi Lahiri, Aparesh Lahiri, Robin, Kanu Roy, Dilip Roy etc.

For this occasion, I have chosen a song that must be regarded as a rare song on many counts. This song is a rare song per se, in the sense that I had not heard this song till now, even though this song was composed in 1970, when I as a precocious music loving kid would listen to all HFM that would get played on Radio, loudspeakers etc.

This song can also be desribed as rare because it is a club song as well as a Helen dance song. One does not associate Kaifi Azmi with a Helen dance song, but this song is very much a Helen dance song.

Though the song has dance by Helen, she does not do any lip syncing. The song is a male solo song. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, regarded uncharitably as poor man’s Rafi by some. The song is lip synced as a party song in Shammi Kapoor style. No, it is lip synced neither by Shammi Kapoor nor by Vishwajeet, whom many people rather uncharitably regarded as poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. the song is lip synced by Chandrashekhar who could well be described as a poor man’s Vishwajeet. That would make him poor man’s poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. 🙂 The song does have such self effacing lines as

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar

The picturisation also shows some well known villains in attendance. K N Singh and Jeewan are present on the occasion. Jeewan seems to have understood every word of this heavy duty lyrics, going by his facial expression. 🙂

I got to listen to the song a few times in the process of noting down of the lyrics. I found the song growingon me. It is that kind of song.

So here is this unsung song as the rather unnoticed 14200th song in the blog. This century took a sedate 26 days. Hopefully we will pick up speed in the coming days and weeks.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support, good wishes and encouragement that keep fuelling this musical bandwagon. Let us hope that this bandwagon keep on rolling, like the mythical perpetual motion machine.


Song-Chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein (Daghabaaz)(1970) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Dilip Roy

Lyrics

chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
aur kisi ne bhi badhke sambhaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
dard patthar ne seene mein paala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
log hanste rahe
koi rota raha
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
mujhko mahfil se lekin nikaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

Blog Day : 3509 Post No. : 14100

Every morning I walk my pets by turns. That is a good time for thinking and getting interesting thoughts. I realised that our blog centuries (when they are taking place at their normal pace) are like lunar months. In the past, we would complete our centuries in 15-16 days which was like one paksh of a lunar month. Nowadays we are taking nearly twice as long to complete a century. In other words, our centuries these days take as long as a lunar month. In other words, these days we are getting one century post per month.

It is different this month. In this month of february 2018, we had touched post number 14000 on the very first day. Today, towards the fag end of february 2018, we reach the next century, viz 14100th post in the blog. It is rare to have two full moons in one month and that has led to the phrase “once in a blue moon”. January 2018 was a blue moon month as far as two full moons were concerned. February 2018 is a “once in a blue moon” month for the blog as far as appearance of two century posts is concerned. When I checked up, I found that the last time we had two century posts in a month was in april 2017. 🙂

Whenever one is dealing with big numbers, one cannot help but devise some statistical tools to judge one’s performance. In limited overs cricket, we have strike rate. In this blog, I have devised a term called blog strike rate. Blog strike rate is nothing but the number of songs per day. One can divide the number of song posts by the number of days in which these posts appeared. We are going at a strike rate of just over 4 songs a day throughout the existence of the blog.

Then there are other interesting statistical analysis that are possible. For instance, number of songs that were created in a year and the number of songs from that year that are covered in the blog. Another variation is number of movies that were released in a year and the number of movies of that year that are represented in the blog. For instance, the year 1964 had 99 movies and 671 songs. The blog has 90 of these movies and 422 of these songs represented in the blog. 44 of these movies are already YIPPEED. So 46 up YIPPEED movies plus nine unrepresented movies from 1964 remain to be covered in the blog.

Covering the as yet unrepresented songs may not be as simple and straightforward as it may appear to the uninitiated. For instance, the nine missing movies of 1964 are rare movies. Sudhir Jee is on a mission to cover the missing movies of 1960s. In two years and three months he has covered more than 60 missing movies of 1960s in the blog. There were 929 movies released in 1960s. As many as 808 of them are covered in the blog with 361 of them already YIPPEED. So just over one hundred movies of 1960s are yet to be covered in the blog. We are making progress regularly. Still a stage will come when we will end up a few movies and a few hundred songs short because of unavailability of the remaining movies and /or songs. In all some 6521 songs were created in 1960s. The blog has 3488 of them. Just over 3000 songs of 1960s remain to be covered.

The decade of 1950s is the most well represented in the blog. 1111 movies are 8654 songs were created during this decade. The blog has 996 movies and 4627 songs represented in the blog, with 348 of these movies already YIPPEED.

Another statistics that is of great interest to me is the number of artists represented in the blog.The lyricists, singers and music directors represented in the blog add up to over 2000. The number of artists on whom these songs were picturised, or who helped create these movies also add up to a considerable number.

Well known artists find considerable representation in the blog. In addition, the blog also gives coverage and recognition to artists who are lesser known and even obscure.

This century songs seeks to recognise the contribution of one of the lesser known artist. This artist is Johny Whisky. This name is obviously inspired from Johny Walker. Johny Whisky (8 february 1932- 7 december 2006), originally named Sheikh Zennul Abdeen, has figured in bit roles in lots of movies starting from 1960s till 1990s. He worked in bit roles and he was too insignificant an actor unlike Johny Walker who tended to have at least one song earmarked for himself in ever movie. Still, Johny Whisky’s voice has been used in a few songs. Johny Whisky got to lend his voice in a song in “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo” (1963), viz. Chal chal chal mere dil and in a song in “Anjaam”(1968) viz. Mubaarak ho tumko ye jungle puraana.

The song under discussion is one where Johny Whisky is the main singer. Johny Whisky plays a eunuch who in India tend to look for houses with newborns. They would reach that house armed with dholaks and sing “badhaai”. That is the main occupation of this third gender in India.

The song is a “badhaai” song which is sung by Johny Whisky and chorus. Though only the audio is availabble, but it is clear that the song is picturised on Johny Whisky and others playing “hijdas”. Though this song is mentioned as a traditioan song, Sahir Ludhianvi is credited as the lyricist of this song in Akshay Manwani’s ‘Sahir Ludhianvi- The People’s Poet’.

Music is composed by C Arjun.

This song is the fifth and final song from the movie so this doubles up as the YIPPEE movie of the day as well.

Here are the details of the earlier songs from the movie covered in the blog.
