Blog Day : 4368 Post No. : 15700

While covering songs on most days, I do not feel much pressure. The only pressure on me is that the day should not end up as a DOT day. I make sure that at least one writeup appears on the blog every day. Fortunately there has been no DOT days this year. The last DOT day of the blog was in December 2019.

The other “pressure”, apart from that of avoiding DOT day, is to make sure that guest posts are published within a day or so. If there is too much delay in publishing them then it may lead to avoidable misunderstanding. Then there is pressure of publishing articles that are topical (having to do with anniversaries, special days etc) which must be published on the appointed day otherwise they lose their relevance.

When it is a question of publishing one post to avoid DOT day, I am happy just being able to publish a bare bones article, an article that hardly has any details other than the most basic information, a far cry from some of the three thousand words plus writeups in the blog. A few of the special occasion writeups are also like that. Guest posts are “easy” because all the hard work is already done by others. It is articles by me on special occasions that put me under pressure. If I am aware of the special occasion well in advance then I am mentally prepared, but if I become aware of the special occasion only on the day when it arrives, then I am in “trouble”. It happens with me in case of many of the anniversaries, seeing that I am not very good in remembering such dates.

Then there are some many days, like Mother’s day, Father’s day, Doctor’s day, Chocolate day and other such largely artificially created days that one becomes aware of only in the morning when one starts the computer and open the search page viz google. And there is some special google doodle staring at you, informing you that it was “Milk” day on that day ! I became aware of “milk” day on the morning of 1st June 2020. I felt that I needed to write an article on the occasion. Much of my day was spend thinking about an appropriate song, because there were very few songs on milk. Then it struck me that milk products qualify as well. And there are so many Hindi film songs on “Maakhan” (butter). We in India even have a God (Lord Krishna) who is the brand ambassador of “Maakhan”. It was already afternoon when this idea struck me and then I started typing out my writeup on the topic. This article finally appeared on the blog in the afternoon at 16:39 IST.

I feel the most “pressure” when the blog reaches its nervous nineties. It means that we need to have a special song as our blog century song. Nowadays, we are barely going at the rate of two or three songs in a day and we do not seem to able to muster the kind of creative writing juices that seemed to flow in abundance till a few years ago. Those days, people would start eagerly anticipating the moment. They would sometimes even stat guessing the song, taking hint from the tallies of various artists in the blog, or basing their guess on the anniversaries to come.

Those days are behind us. Those days we were galloping at Rajdhani express speed, reaching a century in 16 days. These days we are crawling at the speed of a passenger train, reaching centuries in over 50 days.

Just like in case of special occasion songs, I obviously has to think of an appropriate song for the blog century song. The song must be a “special” song befitting the special occasion. As in the case of other “special” occasion songs, this special occasion also puts me under pressure. This time the pressure is of my own making because I myself do not pay attention to the matter in time, and start worrying about it only at the last moment.

I was aware that we are reaching out 157th century, viz song post number 15700, but it was only yesterday (2nd July 2020) when I finally realised that the century post had to be inevitably posted on 3rd July 2020, if I had to ensure that this occasion did not clash with other special occasions viz anniversaries etc.

Like on many similar blog century occasions, I have chosen a “special” song as the blog post number 15700 of the blog. This song can be described as belonging to the category of rare songs, that few people may have heard of. Forget the song, one may not even have heard the name of the movie. The movie is called “Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar”(1960) aka “Black Rider”(1960). It was directed by Mehmood (same as the comedian or someone else ?) for Screenarts Bombay. The B grade obscure movie had Kamran, Krishnkumari, Habeeb, Shaam, Najma etc in it. HFGK mentions five songs for this movie.

One song from this movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from “Black Rider” (1960) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Balbir and Minu Prushottam with chorus. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Harbans.

The song is a qawwaali and sounds wonderful to listen to. But while most qawwaalis are quite long, this qawwaali ends after three minutes , after just two stanza, with the listeners wanting more. I wonder if this song was originally longer and only three minutes long version of the qawwaali was released on record. I request our knowledgeable readers to thow light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.
[Ed Note: As Sudhir ji points out in his comment, the full song is double the length – it is 6+ minutes and appears on two sides of a 78 rpm record. Whoever has uploaded the song did not take care enough to upload the full song. Sudhir ji has now uploaded the full qawwaali and updated the lyrics.]

With this extremely rare song, the blog reaches another century in the blog. This century took 53 days. Now that we are onto song post number 15700, the next magic number 16000 appears near by. Hopefully we will reach that big landmark in a matter of another few months.

With this post done, now I feel free to post next few articles without much pressure, before it would be time for the next important events for the blog, viz blog anniversary (which falls in july itself) etc.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support in helping this musical bandwagon keep chugging along merrily. Many more musical gems still lie ahead that we need to explore and savor.

आ आ आ
हसीनों की अदाओं ने

Blog Day :

4315 Post No. : 15600 Movie Count :

So we reach yet another century of posts in the blog. It appears to be a rather fast century, even though it took 45 days. It is faster in comparison to “recent” centuries though. It is the fastest century since 147th century (Song number 14601 to 14700) which took 53 days to complete. There were days when centuries in 16 days used to be the norm. 🙂

Better late than never, of course. The blog keeps movis steadily, without a pause and that gives us the confidence that our musical bandwagon in moving (however slowly) and so we are indeed inching towards our destination.

During this journey, we often find ourselves reaching individual marks of artists as well. Then we try and combine these landmarks in one write up.

It so happens that today we are reaching two individual landmarks as well, with this article.

This song is the 2700th song of Asha Bhonsle as a playback singer. This song also happens to be the 1100th song of Rajinder Krishan as a lyricist.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Aag Ka Darya”(1990). This movie was produced by R Venkatraman and directed by S V Rajendra Singh. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Rekha, Amrita Singh, Avtar Gill, Padmini Kolhapure etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

Asha Bhonsle and Rajinder Krishan worked together in 380 songs in 181 movies, including 211 solo songs. This song was the last solo song penned by Rajinder Krishan for Asha Bhonsle. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this money matter song.

It is a song that grows on the listeners after one has listened to it a couple of times. It is a nice hummable song to listen to.

With this song, “Aag Ka Darya”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Let us hope that our musical bandwago will not only maintain its run, but it will pick up speed as well.

Ho goriya uski deewaani jiski paackit garam garam

Blog Day :

4270 Post No. : 15500 Movie Count :

4271

Ok, so Atul approached me a few days ago requesting me for a post for a special occasion.

My posts have become very infrequent here – in fact, before my latest post on Sahir’s birth anniversary (8th March), my previous post was on his death anniversary last year (25th October). So a gap of more than 4 months.

But then, like often happens in Test cricket, you wait and wait for a wicket to fall – and when one falls, another quickly follows.

Same has happened here. Following quickly on the heels of the 8th March post, here is another one.

And on such an occasion that I just could not refuse. Let’s just call it the perfect yorker. 🙂

Friends, I am SO honoured here to present Rafisaab’s 3000th song on this blog.

Please allow me now to take a deep breath to let this sink in.

I don’t remember now when we got to Rafisaab’s 1000th and 2000th songs, but as we scale new heights, it feels like we’re entering rarified space.

3000 songs of one artiste on our blog is quite an astonishing achievement. Of course, we’ve already got there with Lata Mangeshkar (she’s going strong with 3500+ right now) but Rafisaab is only the second artiste to hit this milestone here.

Even as I write this post, I feel extremely humbled – and undeserving of this honour. This post is supposed to be a tribute not just to Rafisaab, but to this blog itself.

And there have been so many more here, starting with Atul himself, who deserve to write this. My contributions have dramatically reduced – while there are at least a dozen others (actually many more), who contribute much more, and far more regularly.

But since I am a big Rafisaab fan, I think Atul approached me for this. (In fact there are even bigger Rafisaab fans here – but let’s not start comparing. :-))

Having said all that, let’s talk a bit about Rafisaab here – and our love for him.
I say “our”, because I know I speak for everyone here when I say, we all love Rafisaab here. Only the degree might differ.

Speaking for me personally (and maybe for others too), it has never been about just Rafisaab’s voice.

Sure, for his voice alone, he would easily have had a special place in my heart. That divinity in his voice, his ability to transport me into a different realm altogether, the intonations, the “thehraav” – all of these put him on a level that’s stratospheric for me.

I have spent hours listening to Rafisaab, often intending to listen to just one song. 🙂 I’d listen to one, then get tempted to listen to another, then another, and so on. And before I’d realize it, the minutes would turn into hours. I’ve even spent all night listening to him (ok, that was a few years ago, when I coul stay awake all night). 🙂

It has been said many times before, and by many, but I will say it again – at least in HFM, I haven’t seen any singer with the versatility of Rafisaab. He could deliver every single song in exactly the mood and range required for it. Which is why he could do rock and pop singing just as comfortably as he could do bhajans and ghazals.

Rafisaab could totally get you into any mood the song demanded. He could just mesmerize you into it.

One moment he’s singing the breezy “pukaarta chala hoon main” or the sensuous “aaja re aa zaraa”, the next he’s singing the bhajan “sukh ke sab saathi”. 🙂

One moment, you’re imagining yourself as Shammi Kapoor with “aaja aaja main hoon pyaar tera”, the next you’re Bharat Bhushan lamenting “o duniya ke rakhwaale”. 🙂

They said of Rafisaab that he was an extremely shy and quiet person outside the recording room. You could barely hear his voice.

But once, in the room, recording?

He was a totally different person.

He would be so totally immersed in the song, giving it the very best he could, that you couldn’t believe it was the same person who, outside the room, hardly ever spoke.

In this sense, Rafisaab was a thorough professional. He always sought to give his very best, regardless of who the composer was.

In stature, he was often far higher than most of the composers he sang for. So it is only normal that composers might have hesitated to ask him for a retake, and could have just gone with whatever had been recorded, even if they were not fully satisfied.

But such was Rafisaab’s humility, such was his professionalism, such was his lack of ego, that he would ask the composer if it was ok – and if the composer had any suggestions for improvement, Rafisaab would redo it to the composer’s satisfaction.

That is truly the sign of greatness of an artiste.
And, considering how many successful artistes end up with ego too to match, Rafisaab stands out as an exception.

There are so many other things about Rafisaab that speak of the greatness of him as a human being.

There are other examples of Rafisaab’s nature that are also endearing.

For example, the fact that he sang for composers for a nominal fee, even just a token one rupee, because he knew they could not afford to pay him fees compatible with his stature.

Even in the royalty issue, which resulted in his fallout with Lata, his stand was typical. I don’t want to play judge here, and talk about whether his/Lata’s action was right or wrong, but it was typical of Rafisaab to feel that he had been adequately compensated for the work he had done, and shouldn’t ask for more.

Rafisaab’s generosity went beyond the industry. He provided financial support to people who did not even know who their benefactor was.

All of this, without the slightest arrogance. When someone would praise one of his songs, Rafisaab would just smile and point upwards , as if to say “sab ooparwaale ki kripa hai”.

There’s SO much one could learn from Rafisaab and his values. Ever-polite, ever-professional, ever-helpful, ever-smiling, ever-humble. And ever the family man too, because he always enjoyed spending time with his family.

I’ve written many times about him here – and much of what I’m saying here is repetitive (and possibly boring), but it always gives me great joy to write about Rafisaab, whatever the occasion.

I invariably then write about his character and not just his songs, because his character amazes me just as much as his amazing voice.

So the fact that we have now got 3000 songs of Rafisaab on this blog is a hugely satisfying achievement. My hearty congratulations to Atul, and to everyone else who has been part of this process.

Oh, and in all the discussion about Rafisaab and his 3000th song, I almost forgot.

There’s another milestone to celebrate today – today’s song also happens to be the 15500th song on the blog.

Yes, 15,500.

There was a time, in the early years of the blog, when every century was a major milestone. Then, as the centuries began getting clocked with regularity, the celebration around them decreased. We had entered the chiliad league, so our major milestones became 1000, 2000, 3000 and so on….now past 15000.
The 100s became minor milestones.
While this is understandable to some extent after 155 centuries, I still think every century deserves to be celebrated.

Let us NEVER forget that EVERY song involves a fair amount of effort, and though contributors (*cough*, *cough*) do their bit, every song still requires time & effort from Atul/Sudhirji. And they’ve put this effort 100 times, since 15400. So, I definitely think they deserve appreciation and a round of applause for this.

Now onto the song for today.

You can always trust Atul to unearth songs that have long faded from people’s memory. Or maybe they never got attention when they were released.

The same applies to films too. After all, the Hindi film industry is prolific, with hundreds of films being released every year, and thousands of songs.

As a result, many songs and films never get attention.

This blog has always tried to unearth such songs and films, and to give them their share in the limelight, even if it is several years after their release. After all, every song involves a lot of effort from many artistes. And for a film? The effort is several times more – involving so many more people, in various capacities, each one playing his/her role hoping to see the film succeed at the box-office.

I don’t know the success rate of films, but I’d say there are far more films that don’t click at the box-office, than those which do. Let’s not get into reasons here – I’m no pundit – but I do always like to acknowledge the effort that has gone into making a film anyway.

Why so much of a build-up in this post?

Because the song for today has as much to do with the film as with the song itself.

Prima facie, the song looks like a routine song. It’s a qawwali, with its usual nok-jhok, and, as isn’t uncommon in movies, with disguises. 🙂

Now I’m a sucker for qawwalis, so even though this probably isn’t in the same league as many more illustrious ones, I’m happy to just listen to it, and enjoy it.
Besides, this was 1982 – and by then, qawwalis were slowly on the decline. The times had changed, and naturally films had to reflect the changed times.
So I wouldn’t judge this qawwali, keeping other classics in mind. 🙂

When Atul sent me an e-mail requesting me for a write-up, he explained why he picked this song. It has to do with not just the song, but the film as well.

This is what he said:

The song that I have chosen for the occasion is a special song. It is a rare song. It is composed by an obscure music director called B T Singh. It is the only song of B T Singh with Rafi in his career. HFGK mentions that music was arranged and composed by Uttam Singh. He could be assistant to B T Singh.

The movie is an obscure movie called “Chambal Ke Daaku”(1982). This movie was Produced by R S Sandhu , written and directed by S Azhar for S L Cheema films, Bombay.
The USP of the movie was “Real dacoits pesented first time on screen.”
The movie had real dacoits viz Mohar Singh, Madho Singh, Fateh Singh, Lakhan Singh, Kalyan Singh and hundred of ex dacoits, and actors like Nazneen, Javed Khan, Madhumalini, Sulochana, Malti Joshi, Yasmeen, Birbal, Dushyant, Deep, Ashok, S S Khan, Nirmal Singh, Shamsher Singh, Jeewan Singh, Joginder Singh, Amreek Singh, Joginder Singh Laddhar, Mahendra Singh, Chandrakala, Ramesh Deo, Sohel Khan, Joga Singh, Sayyad Khan, Praveen Lakhad, Gajendra Gadge, Rajkumar, Baw Brar, Shabbir Khan, Guest apppearances by Padma Khanna, Hina Kausar, Mahendra, Raza Murad etc.”

Wow!
So now we have a film here where real-life dacoits just decided to act in a film. Maybe there are other examples too (what about “Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai”)?

In any case, it is a rather fascinating scenario. And of course, when I learnt about this, my mind began working overtime, imagining all sorts of things.

– Were they active dacoits, wanted by the police? If so, how did they get to act? Or had they served their sentence, and reformed? In which case, they shouldn’t be judged on their past, of course.
– How much were they paid?
– Was it maybe just a smart move for the producer to co-opt real-life dacoits so that not only does he have a USP, but he also has access to their expertise, and could film in locations he wouldn’t otherwise dare to?
– How did co-stars, and the rest of the crew feel? Imagine having chai with a real-life dacoit. You’d probably not want to upset him, or even crack a joke about him, for fear of him taking offence at it
– In the shooting scenes, was anyone worried that the dacoits might just get excited and take it all too literally?

Such thoughts, and more, came to my mind, because this was reel life and real life potentially getting mixed up. The key word here is “potentially”. 🙂

Chambal itself was a common film theme in those days – especially in the 70s and early 80s. Films mirror real-life events, and dacoity used to be in the news off and on in those days. There were plenty of dacoit films made in that time, the most famous being Sholay, of course. 🙂

I remember VP Singh, CM of UP (1980-82) came down hard on dacoity in his time, and even got a lot of praise for it. But soon after, there was a major dacoity, as if to spite him – and he offered to resign as CM.

I myself used to travel a lot by train from Orissa to Delhi in the early 80s, and go through Gwalior-Morena (I think Dholpur in Rajasthan also), which I think is the Chambal area. The landscape would be “interesting”, and would trigger my imagination. 🙂

Anyway, enough of digression.

Back to the song, it is sung by Rafisaab (of course), together with Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey. Rafisaab passed away in 1980, so it’s possible this is one of his last few songs – unless the film took a while to get released.

I must admit I couldn’t recognise many faces – but Ramesh Deo is, of course, unmistakeable.

Hope you enjoy the song, and imagine yourself singing it with real-life dacoits in Chambal Valley. 🙂

And once again, congratulations to the blog for clocking Rafisaab’s 3000th, and the blog’s 15500th.

Blog Day : 4206 Post No. : 15400

Regulars of this blog must have got used to the fact that only one or two “new” songs get discussed daily in this blog and that is all. But oldtimer regulars would recall days of yore when six to seven songs were discussed in a day. On occasions, I had the mortification of being admonished by a subscriber to the blog. “I am a music lover but not so much that I can tolerate getting a song post notification every hour”- he stated. He must have registered for the blog on those days when I was able to post even twelve and thirteen posts in a day. 🙂

This is the fifth post of the day. Going by the present sedate ways of the blog, it is rather unusual. The last time this blog had 5 posts in a day was on 17 march 2019. That was the only such occurrence in the blog in 2019. In comparison, 2018 saw 37 such days. In 2012, when the blog was operating at a Sehwag like strike rate, we had 60 such days. As many as eight songs were covered daily on 39 days in 2012 !

So temporarily, it is feeling like old days for me. But today the reason for this suddenly found enthusiasm is that I want to complete the 154th century writeup of the blog before the weekend, when the going will get tough as far as posting articles is concerned.

I find that the blogging mindset is different when one is posting many posts in a day vis a vis the situation when one intends to post just one write-up. In discussing just one (or two) song in a day, we take a conservative approach. We basically become status quo-ist. On the other hand, when one posts many songs in a day one acts like an adventur-ist.

A conservative man would get defeated by the weather conditions (cold foggy winters) while an adventurist man would wake up early and go on a morning walk when the entire world is hiding under razaai. I find that even on this count I have become an adventurist. For the last few days, I have started going on a morning walk come fog or cold. No, I have not done it voluntarily. It is my pet Chhote who has suddenly become fond of being taken for a walk. So he insists that I take him for a walk in the morning, in the afternoon, and in fact all the time. So now I have started to wake up early, and have started walking early morning, often in chilly low visibility foggy conditions. And after that, I have begun to feel like a million dollars. This winter weather is not so daunting, I have rediscovered. I in fact regularly used to wake up even earlier (at 5 AM) during my stay at Bareilly. So now I am rediscovering my old self when I used to be more determined, and less conservative.

And that determination may well have been getting reflected here in the blog today. 🙂 It is the fifth and final song for the day. and I am realising that covering so many posts in a day is not all that tough. 🙂

In the process, I ended up listeing to lots and lots of songs yesterday night (as I used to do earlier) and I rediscovered the pleasures of stumbling upon gems after musical gems. Yesterday, Sudhir Jee asked me if I had any particular song in mind for this century post and I replied in negative. Within a few hours, I was spoilt for choice ! I discovered so many great songs that I had never heard before. and that is the situation when I may have already heard more that 15400 plus songs !

This song is from “Choron Ka Chaor” (1970). This forgotten movie was a stunt movie which was produced and directed by Muhammad Hussain for MH Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Shabnam, Madan Puri, Shetty, Agha, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar, Jayshree T, Randheer, Meena, Neelam, Paro Devi, Gul Hamid, Kamini Devi, Shefali, Jerry, Anjum, Dada Kurte, Moolchand, Dilip Dagi, Sabir, V Gopal, Vishwas Kunte, Master Ripple, Indira Bansal, Habeeb, Trilok Singh, Tiger Abdullah etc. in it.

The movie had four forgotten songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from the movie. This song is one that I had never heard before. It is sung by two female singers who are better known as sisters of their more famous singing sisters. Most of the time they used to get duets with more celebrated singers. Here these two relatively ‘unsung’ singers are given an opportunity to carry a song on their own shoulders. And I must say that the song is just FANTASTIC. Too bad that this song has been forgotten. Or may be it was not even heard by public. I know for sure that I had never heard this song before.

A fantastic song that we are covering as the 15400th song post in the blog. Only the audio of the song is available. Even the audio is quite rare to come by. This song deserves better treatment.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. This song sounds like a synchronized dance song performed by two female dancers in a ‘Villain’s den’ situation.

This song also marks the 100th song of Farooque Kaiser in the blog as a lyricist. Quite a befitting song to bring up his 100th song in the blog ! He becomes the 30th lyricist and 98th artist overall to complete a century of songs in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for the continuous support and encouragement that has ensured continuous existence of this blog for over 4200 days (4206 days to be precise ! ). Let us hope that we will see many more such landmarks, and that the frequency of these landmarks will go up as was the case in the past.

This is the 15300th song post in the blog

Blog Day : 4138 Post No. : 15300

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 50
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under this series where I am presenting yet another song from the Seventies. The last post presented in this series was also presented by me that too was a song from the year 1973.

The song under discussion is also from a movie of 1973.

Ever since Atul ji started this series it has become my routine to regularly check for movies which are eligible to be discussed in the series in the forthcoming month. I try to find movies that triggers long dormant memories of those days, associated either with the movies or their songs.

I may not necessarily have watched all those movies. In some cases it is only the songs from these movies, frequently being played on the radio or loudspeakers may have left lasting memories in my mind.

The movie for today’s song is a case inn point. I have not watched this movie till now, but I remember its song ‘tere naam ka deewaana, tere dar ko dhoondhtaa hai’ which was arguably the most popular of all the songs of this movie, as it was frequently played on the radio then. I did not like this song those days. Nevertheless this was the song and not any other songs that I associate with its movie.

After many years I listened to ‘honi to hoke rahegi anhoni naa hoye’ and liked it very much.

One more song from this movie which was popular and was played on radio and loudspeakers is the song being presented today. It was only after I browsed the list for the pending songs from this movie that I get to know that this song was from this movie ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’.

I was surprised when I find that this song has not been posted on the blog till now.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie or its songs till now. It was during the preparation of this post that I watched the video of this song for the first time.

Despite their popularity, none of these songs made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Before going into the song let us have a look on the movies represented on the blog ten years ago this day 16th November 2009;

Movies represented on the blog on 16.11.2009 (in descending order);

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gaaon mein peepal peepal ki chhainyya Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 03 of 06 songs posted
Sajanwaa bairi ho gaye hamaar Teesri Kasam-1966 All Songs Covered in the blog

‘Sooraj Aur Chandaa-1973’ or ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’ was directed by T. Madhava Rao for ‘Suraj Films, Madras’. (It was a costume drama movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol V). It was produced by A.V. Subramaniam. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Meeta (new discovery), Sujeet Kumar, Jagdeep, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shyama, Jairaj, Sajjan, Krishna Kant, Mukri, Ram Mohan, Herucles, Lalita Kumari, Sujata, Mona, Kamal, Bhimraj, Arun Kumar, Prem Kumar, Ravindra and others. Banda makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B. Vittalacharya, and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Krishna Rao.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.05.1973.

This movie had total six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three out of the six songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is the fourth songsfrom this movie to appear on the blog. The song is picturized on Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar where Bindu is lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Also, there are snakes around in the picturisation of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Editor’s note:-This song was quite a well known and hummable song of 1970s. It was a song which one heard without necessaily being aware of its details.

From the lyrics, one would guess that a lady is singing about her beloved who has come from far off.

When one watches the picturisation, all such assumptions get thrown out of the window. What one watches in the picturisation is something mind blowing, inadvertently so.

The song is a “naagin” song, in which a “naagin” is singing this love song to her beloved. “Naagin” is played by Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar is her beloved.

“Naagin”(1954) provided the template of all “Naagin” movies, but this movie “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973) takes that template to a different plane altogether.

In all other “Naagin” movies, a snake charmer (Sapera) plays the been and the female snake (invariably ichhaadhaari naagin) would turn into a human female and would then perform a dance.In this song, it is different. Here it is the snakes who play the “been” (yes seriously, just watch the picturisation). The snakes do not just play the been, they play the whole orchestra including instruments like Dholak, Tabla, Sitar etc as well. 🙂 And the lead snake Bindu performs the dance.

Snakes playing the music ! It is something unprecedented in the annals of Hindi movies ! I am not aware of any such instance in any other movie.

What an idea ! In my younger days, I would laugh at such a picturisation, but now, I can only be amused at the weirdly imaginative brain of the person behind the picturisation of this song.

This song deserves special recognition, especially for its picturisation.

We in this blog hereby make this song the century song of the blog.

THIS song is the 15300th song post in the blog. This song, marking the 153th century post of the blog is a “special” song in its own way. Picturisation of this song can keep people amused for hours ! 🙂

It appears that Laxmikant Pyarelal had specialised in being music directors of “Naagin” movies of that era. They would compose music for such well known “Naagin” movies like “Nageena”(1986)and “Nigaahen”(1989)” as well. These movies had Sridevi as the ichchaadhaari naagin. Remember ‘balma tum balma ho mere khaali naam ke’ 🙂 ?

So, with this amusingly picturised song, the blog completes another century. An agonisingly slow century that took 72 days. Very much in line with the slowing economy. 🙂

But on a different note, as many as 35 movies made their debut and three movies got YIPPEED during this period.

Thanks are due to all the supporters, well wishers, contributors, regulars and visitors whose continues support ensures that this musical bandwagon keeps chugging along on and on.

Chorus

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya
Purab dishaa se pardesi aaya

Man ka wo meet ban ke ae

Preet ka geet ban ke
honthhon pe aaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

Jab se wo aaya aa aa
neend naa aayi
Jab se wo aaya aa aa
neend naa aayi
neend jo aayi o Ram duhaayi
sapnon mein aa ke mujhe
neend se jagaaya aa aa
neend se jagaaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

jhoom ke maine ae li angdaayi
jhoom ke maine ae li angdaayi
jab sapere ne been bajaayi
naagin pe jaane kaisa jaadu chalaaya aa
jaadu chalaaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani
Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani
Ban gayi main to o aisi deewaani
Saara zamaana uski yaad mein bhulaaya aa
Yaad mein bhulaaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya
Man ka wo meet ban ke ae
preetam ki preet banke
Preet ka geet ban ke
honthhon pe aaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

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 are 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 continuous 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.

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.

paagal zamaane mein

sabse tu paagal jee ban ke mil
paagal zamaane mein

sabse tu paagal jee ban ke mil
paagal ke liye hai maaf
kuchh bhi wo kare mazaak

sabse tu paagal jee ban ke mil
paagal ke liye hai maaf
kuchh bhi wo kare mazaak
sun ae mere dil

duniya ka ye mela
hoon phir bhi main akela
aandhi mein jaise chiraag
kaisi hai ye uljhan
ke suljhaaye jitna man
utna hi uljhe dimaag
kaabil to bhookha mare
paagal jo chaahe kare
kaisa hai mazaak
paagal zamaane mein
is pagal khaane mein
sabse tu pagal jee ban ke to mil
paagal ke liye hai maaf
kuchh bhi wo kare mazaak
sun ae mere dil
arre sun ae mere dil

jal mein dhobi pyaasa
jab dekha ye tamaasha
tab jaa ke samjha main baat
jab tak khud na chaahen
nahin dhoonden khud hum raahen
dega nahin koi saath
matlab ka hai ye jahaan
inan hai aise yahaan
bolen din ko raat
paagal zamaane mein
is pagal khane me
sabse tu pagal jee ban ke to mil
paagal ke liye hai maaf
kuchh bhi wo kare mazaak
sun ae mere dil
are sun ae mere dil

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
