Blog Day :

4340 Post No. : 15640

It is 8am, on Friday, the 5th June, 2020. We are onto the 157th day of the year, and running through the 23rd week.

It is also the full moon day today – the Purnima, as per the lunar calendar. It is the last day today of the month of Jyeshtha. From tomorrow, the month of Aashaad with commence.

It is Kabir Jayanti today, the day of the birth of Sant Kabir Das, one of the main architects of the Bhakti Movement in the 15th century India.

The other important associations of today’s date are – it is the World Environment Day today, as the per the calendar of the United Nations. The other lesser known association for today is – International Day for the Fight against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. As I checked the internet there are a few more very interesting associations of today’s date, no doubt being driven by business considerations. 🙂

It is the International Doughnut Day today, and one is encouraged to bring home their favorite variety of this sugar-rich bakery item. Other notable celebrations for today – it is the Hot Air Balloons Day, the Fish and Chips Day, Moonshine Day, Co-working Day, and also the day to acknowledge the Long Term HIV Survivors. Of these listed above, let me clarify that the Moonshine day has nothing to do with moonlight or moon gazing. The ‘moonshine’ referred to here is Scotch whisky, and today is the day to celebrate the history of this distinctly flavored and the most notorious of alcoholic beverages. The word ‘moonshine’ here has a historical association dating back to the times when production and trade of this beverage was not legal. It was smuggled around during the night – hence the phrase ‘moonshining’ as it relates to illicit activities in the dark of night. The persons involved with this unlawful activity were called ‘moonshiners’ or ‘moonrakers’.

Notable Indian cinema associations for today – it the birth date of film producer Mukesh Bhatt.

Yesterday, 4th June, we got the sad news of the passing away of the famous director Basu Chatterji. I am sure all have enjoyed the wholesome entertainment provided by his films,

The influence of the writings of Sant Kabir Das on the religious and spiritual ambiance of this land, can never be understated. His message stands tall and proud in a social milieu where many a divisions based on religion, caste, social status etc. have been hammered into our society. An unlettered son in a family of weavers, rose to become one of the most learned and wise teachers, not just of his own era, but for all times to come.

Life of Kabir Das is mostly known from legends that abound, rather than from any documented history. It is agreed by historians that he was born into a Muslim family of traditional weavers. His thirst for knowledge was intense, and he was determined to be led by a learned Guru. Those times were of the Bhakti movement across the length and breadth of this land. In the holy city of Varanasi, the most learned teacher was acknowledged to be Swami Ramanand, whose list of disciples reads like the Who’s-Who of the Bhakti movement.

Kabir Das’ initial efforts to become a disciple were fraught with difficulties of caste and religion, and Swami Ramanand refused to take him in as a student. Knowing the daily routines of the one whom he had already accepted as his teacher in his mind, one day Kabir Das went early morning while the dawn was still dark, to the bathing ghats on the banks of River Ganga, and lay down on the steps from where his trusted master would be alighting down towards the water. In the darkness, Swami Ramanand’s foot touched Kabir Das, and the learned master instinctively uttered the words ‘Ram Ram’. Kabir Das took this utterance as the Guru Mantra and took the touching by the master’s feet as the initiation. The Guru-Shishya relation was established. Later historical descriptions clarify that Swami Ramanand did accede to bring Kabir Das into his inner circle of students.

Kabir Das’ daily routine was his traditional working as a weaver, and a small gathering in the evening outside his hut abode, of people who would come to listen to his daily sermons. He did not sermonize, as in speaking / lecturing, but he sang – the poems and the couplets he would be composing during the day, as his hands worked on the looms and shuttles, creating fabric out of thread. His poems and his philosophy is so much the richer, as he attempts to explain the mysteries of life and existence using the weaving paradigm.

The film ‘Mahatma Kabir’ was released in 1954. The film was produced by MS Ahluwalia under the banner of New Premier films, and it was directed by Gajanan Jagirdar. The lead role of Kabir Das was played by Surendra. The rest of the cast of the film is Sulochana, Jagirdar, Randhir, Lalita Pawar, Rajkumar, Munshi Khanjar, Maqbool, Aruch Tarapur, Radheshyam, Heera Sawant, Fazal, Chandabai, Shiraz, Ghosh, Babu, Madan Puri, Chaman Puri, Lohana, snd Master Indrajeet.

The film has 12 songs, some of which are the original poems of Kabir, and the rest are songs written by Chandra Shekhar Pandey, Ehsan, Izhar Malihabadi, Pt Narendra Sharma, and Safdar ‘Aah’. The music composition is by Ani Biswas. The song presented today is written by Chandra Shekhar Pandey and is sung by CH Atma.

The words are not original as written by Kabir Das, however the words and composition quite closely match with his traditional verses. The song tells about the blessings of the Lord, as they unendingly descend like rain upon each one of us. And some of us are afraid to get wet, and try to rescue themselves from this shower of munificence. The voice of CH Atma brings out the poignancy of the message in these verses.

An interesting side note here – we are hearing the voice of CH Atma on this blog after a gap of more than 3 years now.

Film industry is one industry where men and women have to work together. Whether it is Actor-director or Singer-Composer, for the sake of work they have to spend much time together. No wonder then that Cupid does his work overtime. Sometimes there are mutual attraction and at times there are one sided fires burning. In most cases the one sided fire is extinguished in a very painful way, like what P L Santoshi faced with actress Rehana or the slap Sanjiv Kumar got from actress Nutan.

And so, yesterday as I was conversing back and forth with Harish ji Raghuvanshi (resident of Surat, compiler of the ‘Mukesh Geet Kosh’) regarding information on the lyricist SH Behari, we started to discuss the general topic of hugely talented lyricists that spent a very small time in the industry, contributed a small number of very wonderful songs and then somehow did not work anymore for Hindi films. Their filmi careers are lost under obscurity.
