Today’s song is from the film Diwali-1940.

Going through the Film Index book, listing all Hindi films from 1931 to 2012, I was surprised to see that only one film was made with the title of Diwali. One more film was Diwali ki Raat-56. Similarly, only one film was made with the title Dussehra-1956. There are 2 films on Holi-1940 and 1984 while another was Holi ayee re of 1970. This is the end of Indian Festival films. 2 Films were made on Eid ka chaand in 1933 and 1964, Idd ka salaam-1976 and finally Idd Mubarak-1988.

I fail to understand, when so many films are made on Mythological stories, Gods, Arabian Night stories and Mughal Kings, why were the filmmakers disinterested in making films on Indian festivals ? It is ofcourse most unlikely, rather impossible, that any Indian producer will read my question and give a convincing answer. Likewise there are not many songs on Diwali or other festivals either. I found many songs on Holi and Rakhi, though. I don’t expect any explanation for this either !

I am not aware of the storyline or any other matter concerning today’s film. The film was made by Ranjit Movietone and was directed by Jayant Desai. Music was given by the inhouse MD- Khemchand Prakash. This was his first film with Ranjit. Before him Gyan Dutt was the resident MD who worked from 1937 to 1940. After Khemchand prakash left Ranjit, it was Bulo C Rani from 1945 onwards.

In the early era, Ranjit was one of the most powerful and famous filmmaking companies in India, boasting of famous and popular artistes on its payroll. owned by Chandulal Shah, Ranjit Movietone made,in all, 175 films during its existence. Calcutta’s New Theatres, however, stands tall at No.1 with 177 films to its credit.

Film Diwali-1940 had 13 songs, written by D N Madhok, Pt. Sudarshan and P L Santoshi, but HFGK does not credit any song to any Lyricist. The cast of the film was Motilal, Madhuri, Ishwarlal, Keshavrao Datey, Dikshit, Indubala, Suresh, Vasanti etc.etc. The name of Indubala is a misfit. She was a Bengali and did Hindi films mainly made by Calcutta producers in Calcutta and she acted during a period from 1932 to 1949. She sang 30 Hindi songs in 14 films She acted in 33 Hindi films. In most films, she did comic roles. Even in this film she is paired with comedian Dikshit ( of the Ghori-Dikshit pair of the 1930s films). Here is Indubala’s Biodata based on an article by Dr, J.P.Guha, with thanks to him.

Indubala’s mother was Rajabala, who along with sister Matibala and brother Tinkary worked in Motilal Bose’s The Great Bengal Circus, also known as Bose’s Circus or Professor Bose’s Circus. Harimati was the eldest sister of Rajabala and had a different life. Rajabala performed mainly as a trapeze artiste and got married to Motilal Bose at a temple in Ujjain, India. At the time he was then in his forties while Rajabala was still a teenager. The marriage was never accepted as legal by Motilal’s family. Motilal Bose’s first wife was Mrs. Annadamohini Devi.

Indubala was born in November, 1899 at Amritsar, where the circus party had gone for performance. Indu was born premature and Dr. Bidhumukhi Basu was taken to Amritsar from Calcutta to attend Rajbala. Such was the affection and concern of the husband for his young wife. Motilal’s interest in Rajbala dwindled later, supposedly because Rajbala showed no interest in going back to the circus after Indu’s birth and soon she was left to fend for herself. She came to Calcutta with her daughter and was given shelter by a Jiban Krishna Ghosh, who remained loyal to her till his death and also played a major role in establishing Indubala in her life as a performer. Once in Calcutta, Rajabala trained herself as a singer and Indubala’s first training in music was from her mother. The initial plan was to train Indu as a nurse and she was admitted as a trainee in a hospital in the Pataldanga locality of Calcutta. Indu did not take fancy in the job and ran away from the hospital, much to the disappointment of her mother, who never wanted her only daughter to be forced into a life of indignity.

After this incident Indubala’s musical training started. Although her father ignored wife Rajabala completely, he remained fond of his daughter and kept in touch with her and often invited her to his ancestral home where he lived during his brief visits to Calcutta and sent her a monthly pocket money of Rupees twenty till his death. Indubala’s first performance was at a gathering of distinguished guests where her mother was the chief entertainer. Each one of the guests appreciated Indu’s singing and thus began her formal training from Gouri Shankar Mishraji. Indu was only about twelve then. This also marked the entry of Indubala into the red light world. Amongst her trainers were Kali Prasad Mishra, Elaahi Bux and Miss Gauhar Jaan. Apart from music, Miss Gauhar Jaan, credited as Prima Donna of India, Indu also learned etiquette from the elder artiste and developed a close friendship with her. This association provided Indu with valuable musical knowledge and experience.

In later years she took training from Girin Chakraborty, Kamal Dasgupta, Subal Dasgupta, Jamiruddin Khan and Kazi Nazrul Islam. In time she came to be one of the major exponents of Nazrul songs and her songs along with those of Miss Angurbala and Kamala Jharia are still referred to for authenticity of lyrics and tunes of Nazrul songs. In 1916, Indubala recorded her first songs. She was brought into the record circle by Bhagabati Charan Bhattacharya and Mr. Manindra Nath Ghosh, alias Mantababu, himself a gramophone singer of repute. The first songs published as a record were Asha Phuraye Gelo, Sindhu Khambaj and Aar Mukhey Boley Ki Hobey, Kedara. The record number was P 4306. In the beginning she did not take any money from the Gramophone Company and as such was credited in the records as Miss Indubala (Amateur). She was not the first amateur artiste of the company but enjoyed the privilege of announcing her name at the end of each song saying “My name is Indubala”. The amateur status continued for a fairly long period. Later on she received Rupees two hundred per record and also received a royalty of five per cent over the sales. Her first songs of Nazrul on the disc were “Cheyona Sunayana” and “Rumjhum Rumjhum Ke Eley Nupur Paye”. The record number was P 11661. To Indubala also goes the credit of being the first Bengali artiste to record Hindustani songs for the Gramophone Company. For the Indian State Broadcasting Center, later named All India Radio, Indubala first sang on the second day of the radio company’s broadcasting in 1927 in Calcutta and went on singing in this medium for nearly fifty years. Over the radio, Indubala sang not only from Calcutta but from several other stations by special invitation all over India. Apart from discs and the radio, Indubala was well established by the thirties in cultural functions all over India. Frequent invitations used to come from Shahjahanpur, Pakur, Madras, Bangalore, Palanpur, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Oudh, Trivandrum, Vizagapattam, Ajmer, Coimbatore, Dacca and several other places.

In 1936 she was appointed court musician to His Highness, The Maharajah of Mysore. She received a monthly salary of Rupees two hundred and fifty and this continued till the time when the native princes faced withdrawal of privy purse. In all Indubala had recorded some two hundred and eighty songs, including about two hundred forty basic songs, the rest being from films. Indubala’s first stage appearance was in The Rambagan Female Kali Theatre, established by her mother Rajabala in 1922. Both mother and daughter took part in the plays and Indubala appeared in about twelve plays in this short-lived company which lasted for only two years and in 1924 she joined Calcutta’s most prestigious stage, The Star Theatre. She continued to appear on the stage mainly in singing roles and her songs were a major attraction in each of the plays. By rotation she acted in all the public theaters of Calcutta and even took part in the Hindi Parsee Theatre in 1945 and 1946, the plays being Ghar Ki Laaj and Jasoos. Her last appearance in the public stage was in the play Prithviraj in the role of Mehga at Star Theatre in 1950. Thereafter she worked in call shows till almost 1958.

Jamuna Puliney (1933) has been credited as her first film. This is probably because this was her first film contract although Ankh Ka Tara (1932) released before Jamuna Puliney. In all she acted in about forty eight films in Bengali, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Tamil languages. In most of them, she had songs as a major attraction or else did comic roles as in Bengali Indira (1937) and Hindi Diwali (1940) to name a few. She did the role of Dhai Ma in both the versions of Swayamsiddha (1947). Thereafter she was not seen on the screen. As a playback singer she lent her voice in films like Alibaba (1937), Chandragupt (1934) in Hindi, Ab E Hayat (1933) in Urdu and Dil Ki Pyaas (1935) also in Urdu. She did not act in these four films. Indubala did not receive any major award apart from the Gold Disc given on behalf of His Master’s Voice. The government of India never considered her name for any award. The Sangeet Natak Academy however honoured her with a lifetime achievement award in 1975. The government of West Bengal, India however did arrange for a pension for which a lot of running about had to be done.

In personal life, Indubala was most humble and polite and bold in her behavior and was never ashamed to admit or discuss her origin. Even when established as a major singing artiste with an all India fame, she refused to move out to a respectable place leaving her residence in Rambagan, a notorious red light area of Calcutta. Indubala got herself involved in voluntary work for the uplift of fallen women and worked actively for their rights in society through various organizations, which were patronized by top political leaders of the time. She had some interesting hobbies like writing poetry and collecting perfumes.

Even at old age all the empty perfume bottles were kept within her view. She was fond of jewelry too and had a great collection, either purchased or gifted by admirers. These valuables vanished when she was too unwell to keep track of them. Her contemporary artiste Miss Angurbala was a close friend with whom she confided and shared the joys and sorrows of life and this friendship lasted till the very end. Indubala adopted a nephew of her mother’s friend Jiban Krishna Ghosh. The boy’s name was Pranab Ghosh. This foster son did not look after her mother very much when in old age Indubala suffered from conditions like cataract and then paralytic strokes. It was Dr. Badan Sengupta who made necessary arrangements for her treatment. She could not afford nursing homes and therefore was treated at state government hospitals in all occasions of illness.

The end came on the thirtieth day of November, 1984 after a prolonged illness during which again Dr. Badhan Sengupta looked after her as his own mother. Perhaps by coincidence her friend Angurbala died the same year.

Today’s song is sung by Vasanti and Suresh. Vasanti was a very well known and popular Child star. So was Suresh. However Suresh became an adult star in later years. I know of only 2 child artistes, who left the film world, though they were in great demand. First was Vasant, who got married at an appropriate age and left films. The second was Shashi Kapoor Sr. who quit a quite flourishing film career to pursue higher education. He spent his life as a Professor in an US University.

Let us now listen to the duet of Vasanti and Suresh.

This article is the 16900th post in the blog on its 5000th day.

Blog Day :

5000 Post No. : 16900

Today (27 March 2022) is one of those days that arrives regularly in the blog. It is the century post day. Moreover, it is an even more special day for the blog. Today is the 5000th day of the blog !

The fact that today is the 5000th day of the blog was known for quite some time. The idea that this day should coincide with the century post germinated a few days ago, even though it meant that we needed to go at a slower rate than even the already slow rate for the blog.

Sudhir Jee, who floated this idea was under the impression till the last moment that today we were on to 17000th post. It was only at the last moment that he realised that we were onto just the 16900th post. 🙂

Sudhir Jee had identified a special post for the occasion of 17000th post and so that song had to be held back.

We did not have any backup song for the occasion.

Most of our century posts get posted on week days when the blog gets more visits. Today is perhaps the first time in many years when the century post was getting covered on a Sunday. The previous such occasion that I can think of was 20 July 2014, which was a Sunday too and that was the day when the 10000th post was covered on the blog. That day which saw 8 articles being posted was a memorable day for the blog, as the regulars of the blog remember even to this day.

Today is Sunday. A few years ago, I had discovered a rare and remarkable old song of 1940s that celebrated Sunday. I vaguely remembered that I had noted it down and I had even downloaded that song. That song would have been a perfect century song for today. But I could not locate that song, despite searching hard in my portable hard disks and elsewhere. It could well have been hiding in some laptop that I am no longer using.

I informed Sudhir Jee about this song and he too searched for it. But that song could not be located.

During my searches, I came across some other rare songs and I considered using one of them, in case our “Sunday” song could not be located. So here is that song.

This song, quite an interesting and rare song, is from ‘Phulwaari’ (1946).

‘Phulwaari’ (1946) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. The movie had Motilal, Khursheed, Madhubala, Ramayan Tiwari etc in it. This obscure movie had 9 obscure songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

This song, third from the movie and 16900th song in the blog is a children’s song. It is sung by Baby Anu and chorus. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song is a take on Chanda Mama from her point of view. It is quite a fun song, quite an interesting song indeed. The song , like its movie ended up becoming obscure.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

I have no idea who this singer Baby Anu was. She may have been a small child while recording this song, but today she would be in her 70s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on her. She makes her debut as a playback singer in the blog.

16900 songs on the 5000th day for the blog ! It has been quite a marathon run for this musical blog where songs have been covered at a rate of 3.4 songs everyday. These figures demonstrate the fact that if one can be consistent and disciplined that it is possible to achieve such high figures, even if our daily rate of posts may be seemingly low.

The blog now has 16900 songs from nearly 4600 movies, and around 1300 of these movies have already been Yippeee’d. These figures may not appear too daunting to the uninitiated, but these figures are big figures. We realize their size only when we try to list them or try to go through the list, or try to take a print out.

The next century mark is the big mark of 17000th song. Who thought, 14 years ago during 2008, that this blog would still be around in 2022 and people here would talk of 17000 songs in it. We are here and that target is just 100 songs away from us.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. And as always, let us hope that this musical bandwagon keeps rolling on and on and we keep discovering many musical gems in our journey.

This movie had ten songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970). As many as five lyricists wrote the songs for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Khayyam.

The list of the songs this movie has is as given below.

From the above table we can see that six songs out of ten songs of this movie have been posted on the blog so far.

Today 18th February’2022 is the ninety-fifth birth anniversary of music director Khayyam (18.02.1927 – 19.08.2019). As a tribute to him on this occasion, I am presenting a song from this movie ‘Shola Aur Shabnam-1961’. This movie made its debut on the blog on 10.05.2009 and still waiting for its all songs to be covered on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, and it is picturised on Baby Chandrakala and Master Akashdeep. Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Leela Mishra and other artists. (I could not identify the man playing Leela Mishra’s husband.)

Today’s song, though a children song, is a description of fighting and patch-up between the parents.

I think this must be one of the very few songs that Khayyam Saab composed as a ‘children song’. I do not remember any other song. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Raja Mehndi Ali Khan. Music is composed by Khayyam Saab.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Missing Films of 1960s – 118
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

All changes with time. Does everything? There is a counter quote to this one – the more things change, the more they remain the same.

Do dreams change with time, across generations? Maybe some do. Does love change with time? I feel not. The basic understanding of emotions probably remains the same across generations, and maybe across geographies too.

Does life change? Yes, in a context, life does change with passage of time and as per the changing social and economic environment. But do the passages of life change? I believe not. Birth, growth, old age and death – all these passages visit everyone invariably.

And so does childhood – visits everyone invariably. Childhood, and its dreams – that is an experience that visits all of us immediately as we arrive in this creation. Of course the duration of this experience varies from person to person. And not to discount the fact that for some strange souls, this experience lasts a lifetime.

14th November today. Birth anniversary of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India. Traditionally, this day is designated as and has been celebrated as the day of Children for decades. With changing political and administrative priorities, the celebration associated with this day seems to have disappeared from our calendars. Sad to see that a child’s fun and happiness is overshadowed by political idiosyncrasies.

I cannot speak of the digital media – I do not watch TV, period. I get three newspapers at home. Today morning I felt good in my heart that two of them carry special sections of four pages each, devoted to Children’s Day. These pages carry short stories and other material for children. I feel happy that all is not changed, all is not forgotten.

Looking back into our blog, for this date of 14th November across the 13+ years of our musical journey, I find the following about this celebration.

In 2008, there was no mention of Children’s Day on the blog, on this date. In 2009 this day was a dot day, no posts. 2010 saw 6 posts, but no mention of children. 2011 turned out to be a redeeming bonanza, with the entire set of 5 posts that day were assigned to children’s songs.

2012 was again a dot day. In 2013 there were seven posts, with one for this celebration. In 2014 we had 2 celebratory posts devoted to children, out of 5. In 2015 it was 1 out of 2 and 2016 saw 2 posts out of 6. This day in 2017 had only one post, not a children’s song. 2018 had one out of two posts, 2019 had just one post and it was a children’s song. Last year, we had two songs, one of which is the celebration for the day.

So a total of 14 posts in the past 13 years. In all fairness to the blog, I must state we otherwise have 115 children’s songs already posted + many more in other categories like ‘Lullabies’, ‘Parent Child Songs’ etc.

A friend sent a greeting today that carries these words,

“Childhood is all about being wild,”
“having fun and enjoying a carefree life”
“Enjoy your childhood till it lasts.”
“Happy Children’s Day”

I liked the phrase in here – “Enjoy your childhood till it lasts.”. Of course, till it lasts, but then making it last is in our own hands. One can grow up, and take care of everything in life that needs to be taken care of, and still continue to nourish and nurture a child within. You may think it is not feasible, but I do know some people who manage to do just this.

Coming to this song for today. I must share that this song has been sitting with me for over two years now, waiting to be written for. If I remember correctly, it is Sadanand ji who sent me the link to this rare song.

So let’s talk about the rarity factor of this song. The film ‘Rahul’ is a 1964 film by Children’s Film Society, Bombay. Although it is listed in the Geet Kosh, search by me and other friends had turned up a nought, and we had lost all hope that anything about this film will ever turn up. Scarce as they are, the films of Children Film Society are anyway a rarity, and more so the songs contained within. Geet Kosh lists two songs in the film, with the footnote that the film has just two songs.

About the film now. This is a film of devotional genre. The film is directed by Ram Gabaale. The songs are written by Madhukar Rajasthani. Music for this film is by the venerated Vasant Desai. The singing voice is of Asha Bhosle accompanied by chorus.

The star cast of this film is listed as Sandeep, Achla Sachdev, Arun, Ratnamala, Jagdish Sethi, Chaman Puri, Daya Devi, Leela Chaukhaani.

This is a very interesting fun song. The accompanying image on the YouTube clip appears to be of this song itself. It seems to be a song performed by children plus a main lady dancer, all dressed as tribal folk. The song is full of animal sounds and animal references, indicating a forest ambiance having been created for this song. And the singing by Asha Bhosle is just superb. A really enjoyable children’s song.

For the child inside all of us – “Dim Dim Dim Dim Digo”.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is from “Zameen Ke Taare” (1960) not to be confused with the modern day “Taare Zameen Par” (2007). Both the movies had children as center of the movies. But that is where the similarities end.

“Zameen Ke Taare” had a cast of Daisy Irani, Honey Irani, Motilal, Achala Sachdev, Prem Kumar, Kiran Kumari, Anwar Hussain, Kumud Tripathi, Tun Tun, etc. I think Mumtaz and Jayshree T. too were in the movie as child actors. It was directed by Chandulal Shah and produced by Navinchandra Shah for Chandra Movies. It had music by S. Mohinder and songs were written by Tanveer Naqvi, Pandit Indra and Anand Bakshi. The movie had Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and Mohd Rafi as playback singers. It had eight songs of which the blog has the following three.

Song Date of posting
Tinke pe tinka chhutti ke din ka 2 June 2011
Deep gagan ke tum ho 29 November 2016
O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron 8 september 2020

The last song posted (O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron) had a post by Nahmji. It was an attempt to combine the birthdays of the singing legend Asha Bhonsle and music director of yesteryears S. Mohinder. Almost like what I am attempting with this post. And just like Nahmji, I also realized that the composer of the ’50s and ’60s passed away last September on the 6th, two days before he would have turned 95. I read through this news item which was written by Kushal Gopalka. It gave me a lot of knowledge about the music director of such popular songs as ‘Guzara hua zamaana aata nahi dobaara’ from the 1956 release ‘Shirin Farhad’. If I had not read that article I would not have known that I have heard songs tuned by him and enjoyed them.

Today’s song has the child actors Daisy Irani (Mangoo) and Honey Irani (Tingu) lip-syncing to Asha Bhonsle and Sudha Malhotra. This sweet and cute sounding song is penned by Anand Bakshi. The kids Mangoo and Tingu are on a trip in quest of Bhagwan because they have been told that their mothers have gone to “Bhagwan ka ghar”. In the course of their travels they come in contact with a number of people who provide them with diverse answers about where to find Bhagwan. The songs of the movie are set around these incidents. Rather interesting movie, I managed to see part of it in my quest of locating the actors mentioned in the cast.

With this post I wish my favourite singer Asha Bhonsleji on turning a year older. May she have a healthy and lovely life and may we have the pleasure of hearing her for some more years.

A celebration of 100 years of Sahir Ludhianvi – his 700th song being posted on our blog.

A hundred years today. Being celebrated by the 700th post on our blog.

Sahir Ludhianvi – the “. . . Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, who would be actually “. . . Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, being relevant for all times, and responsive to all the pitfalls and tragedies of the human experience. But then also, never to be discounted for romanticism a la “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan. . .” and “Yoon To Hamne Laakh Haseen Dekhe Hain“, or even as “Phir Na Keeje Meri Gustaakh Nigaahi Ka Gila“, or the upbeat strings of “Mere Labon Pe Dekho Aaj Bhi Taraane Hain. . .“, or even the most in depth portrayal of the bhakti (devotion) sentiment, as in “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyaam Saanwre“, and “Tum Bansi Ho Main Taan, Ham Tum Do Nahin” and even more intense in “Aaj Sajan Mohey Ang Laga Lo. . .“.

Yes, it is the poet who is Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar, touching all the facets of experiences of life, from the time when a child is pining for the moon as a toy, and all the way to the derelict conclusion of the human life as in “Lo Apna Jahaan Duniyawaalo, Hum Is Duniya Ko Chhod Chale“.

Sahir Sb seemed to have an affinity for the phrase ‘pal do pal’. We hear these words in ‘Railway Platform’ (1957) –

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara, Pal Do Pal Ki Yaari
Aaj Ruke To Kal Karni Hai Chalne Ki Tayaari
Basti Basti Parvat Parvat. . .

Repeated in ‘Mehmaan’ (1974)

. . .
Pal Do Pal Dhoom Machha Ley
Yoon Mar Mat Mar Mat Yaaraa

In ‘Zameer’ (1975), he would write

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal
Do Pal. . .

Then again in ‘Burning Train’ (1980), reminding us of the shades of ‘Railway Platform’

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara
Pal Do Pal Ke Yaaraane Hain. . .

And yes, ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ (1976) of course,

Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon
Pal Do Pal Meri Kahaani Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Hasti Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Jawaani Hai

In ‘Pyaasa’ of 1957, he had posed three very profound questions in the lines of poetry he wrote for that film. At a personal level, the query was “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The Jin Ke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila“. On the plane of social strife and stigma he had asked “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“. And then, the ultimate question of life that he has posed is “Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“. The film gains its depths, attempting to interpret and address these questions. And more than sixty years later, these questions continue to haunt the discerning mind. Timeless queries, one would say, but still, crystallized for once in words by Sahir.

There is this one incisive insight that the poet possesses, or maybe the other way round, this incisive insight possesses the poet. Each verse, each song that he has penned in his lifetime, goes well beyond the simple words that he wrote. His words, his lines offer you, nay they force you to take a pause and think – what profundity, in just this simple arrangement of 8, 10 or 15 words. And the thought will stay in the mind for much much longer that what it took to simply read the words for once.

This life, ‘zindagi’ – the incisive insight brings out so many facets that the poet examined it. In 1954, he penned the following for ‘Taxi Driver’

Ae Meri Zindagi
Aaj Raat Jhoom Le, Aasmaan Ko Choom Le
Kis Ko Pata Hai Kal Aaye Ke Na Aaye. . .

For ‘Munim Ji’in 1955, he wrote

Ek Taraf Haseen Jalwe Hain
Ik Taraf Jawaani
Zindagi Hai Zinda. . .

In 1958, his words for ‘Light House’ are

Tang Aa Chuke Hain Kashmakash-e-Zindagi Se Hum
Thukra Na Den Jahaan Ko Kahin Be-dilee Se Hum

With 1960 came ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ and the promising words are

Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhoolegi Wo Barsaat Ki Raat. . .

1962, and it is ‘Hum Dono’, with the lines

Main Zindagi Ka Sath Nibhata Chala Gaya. . .

With ‘Aaj Aur Kal’, 1963, ‘Zindagi’ was a most depressing thought.

Maut Kitni Bhi Sangdil Ho Magar
Zindagi Se To Meharbaan Hogi

‘Chandi Ki Deewaar’ and 1964, another depressing sentiment

Kahin Qaraar Na Ho Aur Kahin Khushi Na Miley
Hamaare Baad Kisi Ko Ye Zindagi Na Mile

And then, a refreshing thought in 1965, with these lines in ‘Shagoon’,

Ham Hain Maayoos Magar Itne Bhi Maayoos Nahin
Ek Na Ek Din To Yah Ashqon Ki Ladi Tootegi
Ek Na Ek Din To Chhatenge Ye Ghamon Ke Baadal
Ek Na Ek Din To Ujaale Ki Kiran Phootegi
Zindagi Zulm Sahi Zabr Sahi Gham Hi Sahi

On to 1969, and the life is a happenstance – film is ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’,

Zindagi Ittefaaq Hai
Kal Bhi Ittefaaq Thi Aaj Bhi Ittefaaq Hai

And in the same film, we have the sobering sentiment as,

Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Khushi Ke Phool Bhi
Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Ghamon Ki Dhool Bhi
Zindagi Kabhi Yaqeen Kabhi Gumaan Hai
Har Qadam Pe Teraa-Meraa Imtahaan Hai
Zindagi Ke Rang Kai Re Saathi Re. . .

Come 1975, and it is ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’; the refrain once again is downbeat as in

Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuchh Itna Qareeb Se
Chehre Tamaam Lagne Lage Hain Ajeeb Se

But then it is ‘Zameer’ in the same year that bounces back to say,

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal Do Pal
Ise Khona Nahin Kho Ke Rona Nahin

Plus a more sobering thought, from the same film,

Tum Bhi Chalo Hum Bhi Chalen
Chalti Rahe Zindagi
Naa Zameen Manzil Naa Aasmaan
Zindagi Hai Zindagi

With ‘Kaala Pathar’ in 1979 came the motorcycling song that infused the bubbling spirit of freedom and hope.

Jaate Huye Qadmon Se
Aate Huye Qadmon Se
Bhari Rahegi Raahguzar
Jo Ham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ik Raastaa Hai Zindagi
Jo Tham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ye Qadam Kisi Muqaam Pe
Jo Jam Gaye To Kuchh Nahin

Coming to the song being presented today. It is a wonder that I thought of, as I listened to this song today after a very long time. Yes, a child pining for getting the moon to play with. And with the ‘बाल हठ’ (a child’s obduracy), it is an overwhelming experience to be able to convince the child and talk it out of its impossible wish. As I listened, I am reminded of the story from the Ramayan – the passage where Ram, as a toddler, one day gets into His mind that he wants the moon to play with. No amount of coaxing and appeasing and promises by the parents and others can talk Him out of His insistence. And the accompanying wailing and waving of arms is making Kaushalya and Dashrath very worried and uncomfortable. Rajguru, Vashishth ji is summoned for help. He arrives and says, well, if the child is wanting the moon, give Him the moon. The parents are confused, and ask Vashishth ji, as to how to make that happen.

Rajguru asks for a large dish (‘परात’) with raised edges. The dish is placed in front of the child, and is filled with water. Instantly, the likeness of the moon is reflected in the water in the dish. So Vashishth ji beckons the child and points to the reflection and says, here is the moon, now play. So the toddler Ram, seeing that the moon is now so close, puts His hands in water, but swish and splash as He may, He is not able to hold in hand, the reflection that can be seen with the eyes. But the splashing play pleases Him, and the wailing is forgotten.

Sahir Sb is addressing the same situation in this song, likely that the child is insisting on visiting ‘Chanda Mama’. And as is the rule in Hindi films – well, you have a song to for a three-minute-disposition-of-a-difficult-situation. The lines in the song are actually trying to reason with the child, based on some simple logic statements, that aim at convincing the child that they (the three bad men in the film) are much better suited to be ‘Mamma’ to the child than the distant moon.

So there is arguments like, hads ‘Chanda Mama’ ever visited you? Has ‘Chanda Mama’ ever invited you to his place. He just sits in the sky and creates a fake uproar. Where as we (the three bad men in the film) are with you every day. We play with you, we take care of you and bring you toys. And so, as is wont in Hindi films, all it takes is three minutes of music and song to change the mind of any individual in any situation. Start the song, and you can time the mind conversion almost exactly to 3 minutes (maybe plus a few more seconds).

The video of this song is not available, but it most certainly is picturized on Geeta (role played by Baby Rani) who plays the upset little child, wanting the moon, and the three bad men – Govind, Joseph and Nazir (roles played by Pran, Ajit and Anwar Hussain respectively). The singing voice for the three bad men are back played by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar. The singing voice is not identified for a few lines at the end of the song, which are apparently lip synced by the child.

The film is ‘Nanha Farishta’ from 1969. A film by T Prakash Rao, is a touching tale of three criminals whose lives are transformed by the love a small child girl they have kidnapped. The star cast of this film includes Pran, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Baby Rani, Padmini, Pandharibai, Balraj Sahni, Johnny Walker, Suresh, Mukri, Raj Mehra, Sunder, Maruti, and Prem Kumar.

The film has four songs, all penned by Sahir Sb. The music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Two of the four songs are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here, as the centenary celebration of this gifted poet. And we also add the celebration of adding the 700th song by Sahir Sb to our blog.

A very refreshingly joyful song – yes, Sahir Sb had the versatility to pen such gems also.

Listen and enjoy.

This article is the 400th writeup of Peevesie’s mom in the blog.

Blog Day :

4521 Post No. : 16080

Hullo Atuldom

I have been getting reminders and ‘pokes’ (a term from Facebook) in the form of personal messages from a few Atulites who are asking me why the sudden slump on my part. Now I know what Atulji goes through when all of us question him on “Blank days”. I also am feeling like the first-follower of the blog ‘Rajaji’ who took a few weeks to reach his 200th post with ghodi pe hoke sawaar.

This slump can be attributed to the festival season and having my Mom-in-law for company. I would like to copy-paste a thought that Rajaji has written in his 200th post (sorry for not taking your permission Rajaji)

“No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. :-)”.

In spite of the mentioned reasons I managed to sneak in my post number 399 and that was only 10 days back.

December 3rd is one of those days in the calendar, followed by ASAD, which has two occasions to have special posts. To start of let me wish the “Raunaq-e-blog” a very happy birthday. This was a title bestowed on the recipient in a post three years ago on this date. May she have a healthy, peaceful, musical and joyful day. May her appearances on the blog and WA group be more regular. Wishing our Ben Katie a very happy birthday. On this day I present you a song of the forever PACHCHEES romantic hero of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and the better part of the 80s. May you be as Evergreen and Hyperactive as him.

I went through the filmography of the forever Pachchees Dev Anand and found a few songs of his first decade in the film industry yet to be posted here on the blog. I had almost made up my mind about the song too. One such song was from the movie “Ham Bhi Insaan Hain” (1948) of which the blog has only four from a possible nine songs. But the hurdle for me was the name of the music director “H P Das”. A name new to me; as also the names Amir Banu, Ramola Devi, German, Niharika, Pal, G. Das etc. I decided that this movie and its songs should be handled by the more knowledgeable stalwarts of ASAD. I decided that I shall tread on safe territory and have chosen a song from a movie of the 70s.

I have seen this movie ages ago on Doordarshan and recall that it had something to do with the construction of a bridge to connect India’s North East with the rest of the country. The favoured villain of those times- Pran- played a chieftain of that region who is against the bridge construction as this will lead to the betterment of the locals whom he has kept under his bondage. Sharmila Tagore played the local girl who is ready to take up arms at her Chief’s behest and goes on a mission to sabotage the bridge. Dev Anand played the engineer in-charge of the Bridge Project and also the reason for Sharmila Tagore’s change of opinion about the bridge, its construction, and her chief ‘Deng Do Rani’ (Pran). Johnny Walker, Lalita Pawar, Sujit Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Jayshree T., Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Iftikaar etc played supporting characters. The movie had music by S. D. Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The movie’s title was picked up from Allama Iqbal’s patriotic song “Saare Jahaan se Achcha”. In fact “saare jahaan se achcha” features in the movie too in the voice of Sushma Shrestha and chorus.

Gori gori gaaon ki gori re was the first song to be posted. Mera naam yaao mere paas aao was next. Then came this song Naina soyi soyi raina jaage jaage by our in-house encyclopedia who has made some interesting observations about Lata singing with Uncommon Singers. There was another uniqueness about that song- it was possibly the only time when Lata, SD Burman and RD Burman featured together.
The last song to be posted has been Ho tushima ree tushima aa gaya toofaan by Sadanand Kamathji and it was a tribute to Burmanda on his anniversary.

There are three more songs left of which the film version of “Saare Jahaan se Achcha” is one.

Before we get on to the song I must thank Atulji for allowing us as contributors on his blog and posting my mail to him giving details of the song as my first post ever as lyrics- contributor. That prompted me to send a few more lyrics as farmaishes and then the writing bug bit me and the number of days between my posts have been steadily reducing. I know my contributions are not masterpieces but my own thoughts and feelings. How I wish I had the patience of Sadanandji to write well-researched posts. Or the knowledge of Arunkumarji whom I call Guruji or even the resources (read HFGK) of people like Sudhri, Avinashji etc. I must also mention the love of Nahmji’s love for poetry and poets and her posts have been enlightening.

Today’s song is filmed on Dev Anand and a bunch of kids something on the lines wallah kya nazaara hai mausam bada pyaara hai, galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani; hans tu hardam khushiyaan ya-gham etc. These were the songs that followed “Ye Gulsitaan Hamaara” but all were feel-good songs where Dev Anand is trying to cheer the crowd. It is in the voice of Kishore Kumar. It is nine years since Devsaab passed away and it feels like yesterday. Thinking of the fabulously stylish and charming actor who entertained us for decades.

Once again wishing our Ben Katie on her birthday. Let us have all the birthday songs on loop for her.

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.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 107 # Tribute to Sahir Ludhianvi #
——————————————————————————–

Today 25th October’2020 is the fortieth Remembrance Day of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. He was born on 08th March’1921 and that will mark hundred years of his stepping out on this planet earth.

Sahir Ludhianvi left this mortal world on 25th October’1980 due to heart attack when he was playing cards with his friends.

Today remembering Sahir Ludhianvi and paying him a tribute on the blog I am presenting a song penned by him for the ‘1977-movie- Jaagriti’. As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie was first titled as ‘Ajab Teri Sarkar’ and even its song records were released by this title. I think that affected one song of the movie which was supposed to be in four parts, but now only one of its parts is available.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore.

Jayshree T and Helen make special appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.03.1977.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle noted long back are ready with us, however I when I came across this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur I selected it for today’s presentation for ‘special’ reasons. It’s a song praising to almighty and sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I hope you will like the song too.

With today’s song this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ makes its debut of the blog (and also join the same titles of movies released in ‘1949’ & ‘1954’. There was one more movie with the same title released in ‘1992’.

With the today’s movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ making its debut on the blog, all movies where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for movies released from 1971-1980 are now represented on the blog.

24 Chehre Pe Chehra 1980 N. Dutta
25 Insaaf Ka Taraazu 1980 Ravindra Jain
26 The Burning Train 1980 R.D. Burman

I think this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ must be an obscure movie of its time and may be not seen by many. I would request knowledgeable reader who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie, its songs and artists in the movie.

let us now listen to today’s song …

16/10/2020 – 72nd Birthday of Hema Malini
————————————————————-
So the dream girl is turning 7 & 2, 72. This same way we should make 2 & 2, 22. Right ? wrong, imdb is making “two and two make five”, in simple translation of the movie “Do aur do paanch”(1980). They have “Athiest” for “Nastik”, “The patriot” for “Deshpremi” and “Blind law” for ‘Andha Kanoon”. This is great going. But they go a step ahead and translate “Naseeb” as “Destiny and Fate”, whereas “Dard” is “Conflict of emotion”. I learnt today that ‘Trishul” is “Trident” and “Kasauti” is “Criterion” in English. Many of the 173 films listed in the filmography have been left alone, to dwell in their hindi/urdu quagmire. Some titles like ‘Shareef Badmash” ‘Sharafat” ‘Sholay” ‘Sachhe ka bolbalaa”, “ Ek chadar maili si”,”Jise tu qubool kar le” and ‘Maan Gaye ustaad” have been wisely given a wide berth.

But they can’t stop from falling into “Seven on seven” for “Satte pe satta”. And they failed to translate “Dharmatma” into “The Godfather” ?. They could have done worse and translated “Raziya Sultan” to “Emperor of Contentment”. I did tell Peevesie’s mom the other day, this translating of movie names business is a good exercise for the brain.

Let us go to the song and birthday girl now. The Wikpedia page on Hema Malini is here and is quite exhaustive. If I have to say something from my own “two paisa worth” opinion, Hema Malini was one courageous female artist, who being a public personality, chose to be Dharmendra’s second wife, rejecting other eligible bachelors such as Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra. About Dharmendra’s commitment, there is very filmy dialogue “ekbaar main ne commitment kar li, to phir main apne aap ki bhi nahi suntaa”. Bigger men and personalities have been found to have feet of clay, in similar situations.

The song I have chosen to present today is a much heard and seen song in “Chaayageet”. It was lying buried in the memory and as soon as I saw the title of the song it came back that it is a song where HemaMalini is playing “hide n seek” with kids in the garden. The kids in question are, Master Chintu, Master Raju, Master Alankar, Master Laddu, Padmini Kolhapure, Madhu Malini, Master chicoo, Bunty, Bobby etc. all child artist. The list is sourced from two different sources, so could be inaccurate. There is sad version also of the song, where these kids are singing and searching for Hema Malini.

This is the brief story line of the film, which stars, Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Asrani, Prem Chopra etc.:

Sapna, who works under a number of aliases, is a modern day female Robin Hood, who steals from whoever she can, so that she can maintain a home for orphans. One day she meets with wealthy and eligible bachelor, AnupamVerma, and poses as a wealthy princess. He takes her to meet his grandparents, and even lets her live in his palatial bunglow. But soon Sapna’s past catches up with her, when she is recognized as Champabai, a prostitute.

The creative team is the prolific Laxmikant-Pyarelal-AnandBakshi, with Lata Mangeshkar singing both versions with few un-credited kids voices and chorus.
