Today (14 November 2020) is Children’s day in India.

UN Children’s day is observed on 20 November. India began to celebrate Children’s day (on 20 November) since 1956. However, India started observing Children’s day on Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday (14 November) starting from 14 november 1964), viz after the death of Jawaharlal Nehru (14 november 1889- 25 may 1964) earlier in the year 1964.

According to wikipedia

Children’s Day is celebrated across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children. It is celebrated on 14 November every year as a tribute to India’s First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Fondly known as Chacha Nehru among children, he advocated for children to have fulfilled education.Nehru considered children as real strength of a nation and foundation of society. On this day, many educational and motivational programs are held across India for children.

The celebration of Children’s Day in India dates back to 1956. Prior to the death of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, India celebrated Children’s Day on 20 November (the date observed as Universal Children’s Day by the United Nations). After the death of Jawaharlal Nehru, his birth anniversary was deliberated to be celebrated as Children’s Day in India. It was done so because he was very popular with the kids as Chacha Nehru, hence, a resolution was passed in the parliament to give a befitting farewell to the first Prime Minister of India.

Today 14 november 2020 is also Deepaawali !

There are some people (including myself) who were curious to know if Children’s day in India as well as Deepaawali have fallen on the same day in the the past as well.

I did some research, and found that Deepaawali has coincided with 14 november on 6 occasions in the past 120 Years. Here are the details:-

Year Day Remarks
1898 Monday
1917 Wednesday
1936 Saturday Exactly same as in 2020
1955 Monday
1974 Thursday First occastion of Deepawali falling on India’s Children’s day
2020 Saturday Exactly same as in 1936

Gregorian calendar (to determine birthdays) and Hindu calendar (to determine deepawali and other festivals) applicable in 1936 and 2020 were identical ! So the Hindu festivals of both these years fell on the same dates and same days on Gregorain Calendar!

“Naunihaal”(1967) is an ideal movie to celebrate Children’s day. The movie was about Nehru and it was about children. This movie was directed by Raj Marbros for ‘Mercury Productions, Bombay’. The movie had Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherji, Sanjeev Kumar, Master Babloo, Harendranath Chattopadhyay, Abhi Bhattacharya, Madhvi, Jagdeep, Asit Sen, Brahm Bharadwaj, Manmohan and others.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered. Here are the details:-

On the occasion of Children’s day, here is a quintessential children’s song from “Naunihaal”(1967), a song where Children’s are happy with the fact that chhutti has finally arrived. 🙂

The song is sung by Kamal Barot, Krishna Kalle and chorus. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day :

3990 Post No. : 15083

I have so many things to write about that sometimes they (those things crowding my thoughts) don’t let me sleep at night. Wish I had the habit of writing the diary. . . those “dear diary“, outpourings would have helped as a sounding board, more effectively than this blog.

Once upon a time I did start a daily diary, but that did not develop to the level of habit. Then many years ago a colleague advised in all seriousness that I should write down the daily thoughts, clearly impressed with the way I was able to warm to any topic and give a one minute lecture to an assorted audience or whoever was around me. I wasn’t really enamoured by that particular lady and I have never used her as a sounding board or even a ‘complaint register’. I tried to avoid talking about much of anything with her or say only as much as necessary, but she has a knack of introducing topics into conversation and getting people to open up.

I am not too choosy about whom I befriend, but if I develop a dislike of someone, then it gets fixed in my attitude for all times. I have tried very hard to get rid of this fallacy, and try to give second, third chances to people for redeeming themselves. I do this sort of exercise of finding excuses for people, whom I consider my friends, whenever they don’t behave as expected, on regular basis. This positivity of trying to always look at the brighter side, is good within a limit.

Till recently, I used to get very irritated with my parents same habit. So much so that I wrote in one of the posts, that my Mom looks at all things with her colour tinted glasses or ‘rangeen chashma’. This way she can see others in whichever colour she wants. Unn ko duniya bahut rangeen dikhaayi deti hai. In the sense that they live by the maxim that “hum achche to duniya achchi”.

I know the colleague who advised me to write down the thoughts etc., meant well. But I am unable to warm towards her till date, despite her being very close to a very close friend. With her natural ability and curiosity I suspect that she is able to gather all the information. Good for her, if she is happy then I don’t mind. We do meet occasionally as colleagues and also in common friend circles, but maybe I will be able to think of her also as a friend in future.

This lady also had some more well meaning advice to offer, on the topic of improving my daughter s complexion. This was many years ago. I was able to take in that advice from one ear, and throw it out of the other. Really she was simpleton, like my own mother and others. I hope that by now she has learnt differently.

Last week , Sudhir sir posted the song “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain”, in the repeat songs series. Some of the comments in the ‘Gumnaam’ song posts asked to know the meaning of those words of the mukhda. “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain” expresses an appeal against a deep rooted malice/prejudice in the society, which is blatant in the belief that only white is beautiful and black is not. Obviously the same malice is still prevalent if one goes by the no. of products available in the market for skin fairness. Nothing wrong if people want to make their skin fairer by these products, but the fact remains, this improvement or whatever, will only be skin deep. Nothing to do with core of the soul inside the skin. Food for thought.

Here is a song from the film ‘Minoo’ (1977), dealing with the same contrast of gora and kaala. The ‘Gumnaam’ song, took a funny route and this song in the voice of Antara Chaudhary is riding on a child’s innocence and a black goat named Kaali. Salil Chaudhari is the music director, and the lyrics are written by Yogesh. There was also a popular song in this film “Teri Galiyon Mein Hum Aaye”, which is already posted.

Today’s song used to play a lot on the radio when the movie was new. My younger brother was born in 1976, and my elder sister used to sing this carrying our baby brother along.

Oh. . . there are many such stories and happenings, some related and others not related to film songs. I just hope I am able to pen them down and share with all my fellow bloggers and fans of Hindi Film music.

ओ ओ
काली रे काली रे
तू तो काली काली है
गोरा सा एक भैया
माँ अब लानेवाली है
ओ काली रे काली रे
तू तो काली काली है
गोरा सा एक भैया
माँ अब लानेवाली है

भैया होगा प्यारा प्यारा
चाँद सरीखा
पर देख उसे चाँद भी
हो जाएगा फीका
भैया होगा प्यारा प्यारा
चाँद सरीखा
पर देख उसे चाँद भी
हो जाएगा फीका
मैं गाल पे काजल का
लगा दूँगी रे टीका
मैं गाल पे काजल का
लगा दूँगी रे टीका
लगा दूँगी रे टीका

काली रे काली रे
तू तो काली काली है
गोरा सा एक भैया
माँ अब लानेवाली है

दिन रात उसे देखा करूंगी
मैं सजा के
मैं खेलूँगी भैया को
गोदी में उठा के
दिन रात उसे देखा करूंगी
मैं सजा के
मैं खेलूँगी भैया को
गोदी में उठा के
मैं रोज़ सुलाऊँगी
उसे लोरीयाँ गा के
मैं रोज़ सुलाऊँगी
उसे लोरीयाँ गा के


काली रे काली रे
तू तो काली काली है
गोरा सा एक भैया
माँ अब लानेवाली है
हो ओ काली रे काली रे
तू तो काली काली है
गोरा सा एक भैया
माँ अब लानेवाली है


“Man Mandir” (1971), which is a new movie by the standards of this blog, starred Waheeda Rehman and Sanjeev Kumar. This movie, by most indications was a flop. This movie had some nice songs in it, though, which were popular at that time. I loved these songs though at that time I was not aware that those songs were from this movie. I have already discussed two such songs from this movie in this blog.

In Hindi movies, Kids are supposed to be a straight line extention of grown ups, so they are shown behaving like grown ups. Lead actors who are shown in love with each other in their grown up age are shown to be in love with each other even in their childhood in case their childhood is depicted in the movie.
