Today, 21st June is designated as the World Music Day. The reminders checked in quite late in the afternoon today. The historical details about this event are available on the internet, and our dear Arun ji has also summarized them in a brief post on the Whatsapp group.

As I set down thinking about this event, and to search out an appropriate song for today, my mind almost immediately went to the 1985 film ‘Sur Sangam’.  In my mind, this is probably the best film on the theme of classical music, in the recent decades. Times are past that classical music and the legends of this art form used to be the central themes of many a film, especially from the historical perspective, in the decades that coincide with the golden era of Hindi film music. Historical persona such as Tansen and Baiju, Narsi Mehta and Meerabai, Kalidas and Soordas, Kabir and Rani Roopmati have been central themes and central characters of many a film till the decade of 1970s. Beyond that, I cannot easily recall a film whose theme and storyline is based primarily on classical music.

Genius of Jaidev – 59
——————————–

The 1986 film, ‘Trikon Ka Chotha Kon’, was produced and directed by Madhusudan. The main actors in the film were Vijayendra Ghatge, Swaroop Sampat and Priyadarshani, who formed the triangle of the story. The film had 3 songs, one each written by Mahadevi Varma, Shahryar and Maya Govind, and were set to music by Jaidev.  One of the songs, “Dil Dhadakne Ki Aawaaz Ki Khaamoshi“, a duet by Bhupinder and Peenaz Masani and penned by Shaharyar, and another solo “Kiya Piya Pe Kya Jaadoo“, by Chhaya Ganguli penned by Maya Govind are already showcased on this musical blog.

Sureeli Suman – 06
———————-

After posting the ‘thhumri’ ‘Saajan ki Baat Niraali’, here is one more ‘thhumri’ by Suman Kalyanpur under the direction of Khan Saheb Abdul Rehman Khan. The traditional lyrics were modified by Khan Saheb himself. These two thumries were on an Extended Play disk (EP) and was purchased by me 46 years ago in January 1969.

HFM Songs Statistics by Year – 1
——————————————————
Years 1931 and 1932
————————————–

We are adding songs belonging to various years in the blog regularly for the last seven years. Though we have covered lots of ground, we have not yet taken a look back at the ground covered so far. It is high time we take a holistic look at the number of HFM songs of various years available in the blog and also the number of HFM songs created during that year as well as the number of songs likely to be available. That will give us an idea about where we stand in the blog when it comes to covering the songs of that year. It will also give us an idea of what is required to be done in the future.

Basics of classical music-part V
—————————————————-
(Genres of classical compositions and gharanas)
—————————————————-

Several regular contributors of this blog have their own series of songs going on in the blog. Some of these series are like express trains that appear at fixed intervals. On the other hand, there are some series that are more like special trains that have no fixed schedules and they run at irregular intervals. Readers may or may not follow these series, but these series mean something to their authors themselves.

It turns out that I too have one such series of articles that appears irregularly. This series is called “Series on Basics of music”. Four articles have so far appeared in the series. Part I appeared on 21 may 2015 and the fourth part was on 17 june 2015.

“Sone Pe Suhaaga”, as we say in India.  First it was the momentous 10K milestone in July last year (20 Jul 2014).  Then a little while ago, on the close of the previous financial year (31 Mar, 2015) we had the auspicious and ‘Badhaai Waala” 11K milestone. And then today, we have the next level ‘1’ added, taking the auspiciousness and ‘badhaai’ to the next level on the scale.

Welcome all to the next important century milestone on this blog.  After we had the invasion of the blog by an army of eleven thousand young ladies, I mean, after the “Gyaarah Hazaar Ladkiaan” made their auspicious and enchanting appearance a little over a month ago, we have added another 100 wonderful songs to bag of magic that this blog is now transforming into. This segment has been relatively slower, taking exactly thirty two days to complete this leg of the journey. Of course we have an excuse for it.  But we are not going to talk about it today.  Maybe someday later, hopefully sooner than later.  But not today.  After getting over with the customary greetings and welcome and congratulations, I want to talk about a friend, a very dear friend.  And in our lingua-franca, the term ‘a dear friend’ evidently implies a lover of music.
