Today’s song is from the ‘1956’ movie ‘Sailaab’.

This movie is new to me except for its song Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa , a song that I have listened to innumerable times from my ‘cassette collection years’. This song must be a well-known song from this movie and this was also posted on the blog long back on 21.10.2009.

“Sailaab-1956” was directed by Guru Dutt for ‘Emar Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Mukul Roy.

It had Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Bipin Gupta, Ram Singh, Smruti Biswas, Helen, Sulochana Devi, Moni Chatterjee, Rashid, Uma Devi, Agha Mirza, Nazeer Kashmiri, Krishnakant, and others.

Johny Walker had a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.01.1956.

Our in-house encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar ji has given a brief account of this movie while presenting the next song from this movie on the blog on 30.01.2017. I am reproducing the text from his post below.

Gautam (Abhi Bhattacharya), a rich young man goes to Assam to visit his father’s tea plantation. The plane in which Gautam is travelling is forced to make an emergency landing due to bad weather. Gautam gets hurt and suffers from amnesia. He falls in love with a young woman Kanchan (Geeta Bali) who responds to him even though she is part of a religious community that doesn’t allow its members to marry. Gautam’s father takes him back to Calcutta. Gautam’s mother dies and the shock of her death brings back Gautam’s memory. But as his memory returns he forgets Kanchan. Kanchan comes to Calcutta in search of Gautam and sees that he fails to recognize her. She returns to her community deciding to renounce the world. In time Gautam is able to recollect his association with her and he goes after her to Assam. The lovers are reunited.

In the above post with the song ‘aa gayi aa gayi aa gayi re’, Shri Arunkumar ji also discussed the producer and music director of this movie . Mukul Roy who was singer Geeta Dutt’s elder brother. Arunkumar ji has also shared other valuable information about the sister of Geeta Dutt i.e. Laxmi Roy who had sung a song in this movie.

This movie had nine songs which were composed to music by Mukul Roy who was also the producer of this movie. The task of lyrics writing for these nine songs was shared by Majrooh Sultanpuri (four songs), Shailendra( two songs), Madhukar Rajasthani(one song) and Hasrat Jaipuri (two songs).

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Ye rut, ye raat jawaan, bekal dil ke armaan Shailendra Geeta Dutt
02 Tan pe rang sakhi, man mein rang sakhi Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt, chorus
03 Baje dil ki taar, kare ye pukaar Hasrat Jaipuri Laxmi Roy
04 Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Hemant Kumar 21.10.2009
05 Jiyaraa baat nahin mane kisi ki Hasrat Jaipuri Geeta Dutt
06 Chaand ke aansoo shabnam ban ke … Madhukar Rajasthani Geeta Dutt
07 Aa gayi, aa gayi, aa gayi re, raat rang bhar aa gayi Shailendra Geeta Dutt 30.01.2017
08 Om hari om… prabhu aayi pujarin tumhaare anganaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt, chorus
09 Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt 21.10.2009

(HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) in its footnote of the above movie-page noted that except song number 1 and 7, all other songs of this movie were recorded in February and April 1954. Though, this movie was passed by the Censor Board in 1956.

Song number 9 seems to be added later to this movie.

As per director Ravindra Dave the direction of the first four reels of this movie was done by him.)

Today we are going to listen to the third song from this movie which is sung by Geeta Dutt. Only the audio of this song is available. I guess this song must be a club-dance song.

Let us now listen to today’s song.


Song-Ye rut ye raat jawaan bekal dil ke armaan (Sailaab)(1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Mukul Roy

Lyrics

ye rut ye raat jawaan
bekal dil ke armaan

This date ten years ago (26 April 2012) was an extremely productive day for the blog. As many as nine songs from nine different movies were covered on this day. Here are the details:-

One can observe that as many as seven movies (out of nine) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies that are still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (26 April 2022).

“Bade Ghar Ki Bahu”(1960) is one of the movies.

“Bade Ghar Ki Bahu”(1960) was Produced by J.S.Puri and directed by Kundan Kumar for Life and Arts, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kuldeep aka Kuldeep Kaur, Sunder, Shammi, Neeru, Bhagwan Sinha, Chanda Bai, Niranjan Sharma, Shela Vaz, Nagpal etc in it.

There were four lyricists in the movie (Prem Dhawan, Sarashar Sailani, Anjum Jaipuri, Tanvir Naqvi) but lyricist for this song is not known.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Sheila Vaz. Kuldeep Kaur and Abhi Bhattacharya, playing love birds are seen among the audience.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 41
————————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (5 april 2012) was a relatively “lean” day for the blog. “Only” five songs from five different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5735 Kyaa dekha ab nainon waali Dharmputra(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
5736 Man morey gaa jhoom ke Mangu (1954) 6 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5737 Naiyya meri chalti jaaye My Friend(1974) One song covered out of 4
5738 Rehne do chanda badli mein Chowkidaar(1974) Movie YIPPEED by now
5739 Nateeja hamaari muhabbat ka kyaa hai Puraskaar(1970) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that three movies out of five whose songs figured in the blog ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

That leaves us with only two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (5 April 2022). But songs of only one of these movies are available and so practically only one movie is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

That movie is “My Friend”(1974).

“My Friend”(1974) was produced by Poonam Bhai Shah and Naushad and directed by M Rehman for Poonam Pictures Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Rajeev(New find), Prema Narayan, Utpal Dutt, Purnima, Umraani(new find), Jagdeep, Asit Sen, Polson, Tuntun, Badri Prasad, Mona Sayeed, Hakeem, Samson, Rirkoo, Ratna, Moolchand etc in it.

“My Friend”(1974) had four songs in it. The movie made its debut ten years ago and that song covered ten years ago is the only song from this movie in the blog so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is the second song from “My Friend”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar with some male chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a cabarat dance song. Though Lata Mangeshkar sang very few cabarat songs, she did sing a few of them, like for instance in “Izzat”(1968) “Inteqam”(1969) for Helen.

Here there is no Helen in the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This day ten years ago (viz February 2012) was a “normal” day for the blog. As many as seven songs from seven different movies were discussed in the blog on that day.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog Day :

I count the minutes the days the hours. . .
I count the stars. . .

Days, then weeks, then months – on to years and decades. The march of time incessantly continues. Superimposed on this unremitting progression is a calendar that allows us to measure passages of time. The philosophers of yore had no tools other than observation and contemplation, by which they used to measure natural phenomena. And then this measurement and contemplation over long periods of time uncovered patterns of celestial movements which tied into the the design of changing climate on earth. And thus was born the concept of calendar and measures of years. Over a period of time it got refined into a detailed structure that we now see as twelve months and 365 days. Of course with further refinements of leap years and leap centuries to make accurate adjustments to synchronize the this framework with the precise movement of Sun in our skies.

As aeons progressed, the year became a substantive measure of passage of time that fitted well into the cycle of seasons, and hence into the cycle of agriculture and farming of crops. This was the basic standard that started it all – there is nothing more critical in the world than food for survival. Air and water are available, but food – it has to be grown.

So the year became a standard of passages in life. The human life, its works and its achievements got tied with the cycle of years. Age of humans, education, performance measures of all kinds et al, got tied to the cycle of years. Longevity of relationships and the apparent joy of happiness, trust and loyalty, financial turnovers – you name it. Everything happens with the passage of years.

And the year also become the benchmark of celebrations, be it birthdays, anniversaries etc., everything is in terms of number of years.

And this pyramid is completed when we celebrate the passage of the ‘year’ itself. From time immemorial, different races, different nations, different belief systems, different working systems, and more – have identified their own regulated time points within a year, when the completion of one year is announced. Within our own country we have multiple celebrations around the year, when we announce the dawn of a new year. And so have many other countries, religions and sects of people.

The Gregorian calendar is the most prevalent and accepted calendar around the world at present times. And hence the start of a fresh year as per this calendar is also a celebration that has been accepted worldwide. Come 1st January, and the dawn of the New Year is celebrated across all nations and across all time zones. So that brings us to the celebration of the New Year on our blog also.

Over the past thirteen plus years, we have celebrated this day fourteen times, starting with 1st January 2009, and counting up to today i.e. 2022. As I tried to trace out the songs which are specifically New Year celebration songs, I could locate only 11 songs that have been used so far on this blog. No doubt the celebration and greetings messages are contained in some more posts that are dated 31st Dec and 1st Jan. But not all those songs are specifically New Year celebration songs. Here is the list of these eleven songs. In case I have missed any, please leave a comment, and I shall update this table.

Ye Saal Ki Aakhhri Raat Hai Beraham 1980 31-Dec-11
Saal Mubaarak Saahib Jee Do Jaasoos 1975 1-Jan-12
Naya Saal Aaye Tamaashe Dikhaaye Nazraana Pyaar Ka 1980 1-Jan-12
Aanewaale Saal Ko Salaam Aap Ke Saath 1986 1-Jan-12
Sabko Mubarak Naya Saal Samrat 1954 1-Jan-13
Saal Mubaarak Aaya Ho Jiyo Mere Raaja Toote Khilaune 1954 1-Jan-13
Happy New Year To You Do Jaasoos 1975 1-Jan-13
Naye Puraane Saal Mein Ek Raat Baaki Hai Raksha 1981 31-Dec-14
Aadhi Raat Aayi To Khayaal Aaya Hai Bahaaron Ki Manzil 1991 1-Jan-15
Assalaam-aile-Qum, Saal Mubaarak Ho Telephone 1986 31-Dec-19
Sach Kehta Hai Ye Saara Zamaana Jaagir 1984 1-Jan-20

Our dear Prakash Chandra ji has been very diligent with ferreting out songs for special occasions, and he has been very helpful in the past in getting details about New Year celebration songs to Atul ji and myself. Actually two of his suggested songs are still waiting. As I was trying to use one of them for this post, I discovered that the links provided were not functional at this time. So for today, we are using this song from the 1977 film ‘Zehreeli’. The film makes its debut on our blog today.

‘Zehreeli’ is a run-of-the-mill crime and punishment tale. A B-grade movie, that most likely came and went without raising much interest. The film comes from the production house of Amba Films,Bombay and is directed by VN Reddy, who is also the cinematographer of this film. The star cast of this film is listed as Neetu Singh, Shailendra Singh, Bindu, Jalal Agha, Imtiaz, Virendra, Jairaj, Purnima, Sharat Saxena, Jagirdar, Satish Arora, Nandita Thakur and others.

As per Geet Kosh, there are three songs in this film. The music director for this film is Sharda, whom we better know as a singer.  As I check the MD details on the blog, we already have four songs on board, that have been composed by her. This now is the fifth song composed by her to be showcased here.

Two songs of this film are penned by Vithalbhai Patel and one song is written by Abhilaash. This song is from the pen of Vithalbhai Patel. The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Aarti Mukherji. On screen, Bindu is lip syncing the voice of Aarti Mukherji. I had a hard time trying to identify the gentleman who lip syncs Rafi Sb’s voice. The name is M Naidu, and he is also the choreographer for the film. I must thank my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai, an ardent fan of Rafi Sb, for this identification.

The song is somewhat peculiar. It has only one stanza after the mukhda, and it was also an exercise to confirm that this is the complete version. The audio of the song, and also the song on screen has a longer duration. More than half the duration of the song is simply music and dance by Bindu. Oh well, the powers that may be. It is a song of Happy New Year message, so here we are.

This is the opening song of the film immediately after the credits are displayed on screen.

And so, it is a goodbye to the dear 2021, and a welcome to the fresh and new 2022.
Wishing all readers, friends and fellow band-wagoneers, a Very Happy and Peaceful New Year.

Blog Day :

4867 Post No. : 16659

Today, November 14, 2021 is the 4th Remembrance Day of Shyama (real name – Khurshid Akhtar) who enthralled the Hindi film buffs with her blinks and smiles in her Hindi films of 1950s. There was a spontaneity and energy in her performances reflecting, what I guess, her joie de vivre nature.

My earliest memory of watching Shyama was in ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) on its repeat release sometime in 1974 as a part of Guru Dutt’s Film Perspectives. I became familiar with her face when some of the songs picturised on her from the films like my all-time favourite, ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Sharda’ (1957), ‘Mr Qartoon MA’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) and many more, used to be telecast on Mumbai Doordarshan’s  ‘Chhaaya Geet’ programme. Some of her songs have remained in the limelight even today. I can never get tired of watching those songs pictuirsed on Shyama.

Shyama (07 Jun, 1935 – 14 Nov, 2017) was born in Lahore but her family had shifted to Mumbai in early 1940s. She did her schooling in Anjuman-E-Islam High School in South Mumbai. Shyama’s foray into her first Hindi film, ‘Zeenat’ (1945) was an accidental one. When she was on a visit to watch the film’s shooting along with her school friends, the film’s director, Shaukat Hussain Rizvi invited her to be the part of the chorus singers for the picturization of the qawwali song, “Aahen Na Bhari Shiqwe Na Kiye”. At that time, she was 9. Thereafter, she did small roles as a child actor and side roles as a teenager in around 35 films. At a young age, she had become the bread-earner for her large family. Her screen name, Shyama was given by Prakash Pictures’ Vijay Bhatt when working in his film, ‘Nai Maa’ (1946) as a child artist.

Everything was not roses on the way to reach the stardom for Shyama. She had to struggle very hard to get roles during the early stage of her life when she was growing from her childhood to a teenager. Her struggling days got over when she bagged her first lead role in Filmistan’s ‘Shrimati ji’ (1952) with Nasir Khan. Thereafter, there was no dearth of work for her in the films.

During her filmy career of over 4 decades, Shyama worked in around 175 films. Some of her notable films are ‘Hum Log’ (1951), ‘Sazaa’ (1951), ‘Dil-E-Naadan’ (1953), ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Musaafirkhaana’ (1955), ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Shaarda’ (1957), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Johnny Walker’ (1957), ‘Mr. Qartoon MA’ (1958), ‘Laala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Chhoti Bahen’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), ‘Zabak’ (1961), ‘Bahurani’ (1963). From 1960’s onwards, Shayma switched over to character roles. She was active till the end of 1970s. However, after the death of her husband in 1979, she virtually took retirement from the films. Shyama faced the camera for the last time in ‘Hathyaar’ (1989).

I was going through her filmography from 1952 when she started getting lead actor’s roles to 1960 when her career was in the waning stage as a lead actor. It is amazing to note that during 1952-60, she worked in as many as 84 films making an average of nearly 10 films per year. I do not recall any other actress of her time achieved this distinction. The main reason for her large number films was that she accepted both the lead as well as supporting actor’s roles. Her films covered a variety of genres with a large assortments of lead actors like Motilal, Ashok Kumar, Premnath, Shammi Kapoor, Bharat Bhushan, Karan Diwan, Guru Dutt, Balraj Sahni, Sunil Dutt, Kishore Kumar, Johnny Walker, Ranjan, Mahipal, Talat Mehmood etc.

Shyama faced her worst financial and emotional turmoil in 1953 when she decided to marry director and cinematographer Fali Mistry. They fell in love  on the sets of ‘Sazaa’ (1951). The marriage was opposed by her father and her brothers. She had revealed her agony in her article in the Urdu film magazine ‘Shama’, published in November 1954, the English translation of which is available in Yasir Abbasi’s book ‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’ (2018).

According to Shyama, apparently the problem for her large family was that having got used to living lavishly on her earnings, they feared that her marriage with Fali Mistry would strip them off comforts and luxuries. When she decided to go ahead with the marriage, she was forced to leave her own house without her money and jewelry as her father and brothers confiscated all her assets including the bank balances. She and her supporting mother had to stay with the family of producer-director M Sadiq for a month before she could buy her own house by arranging money. It took another six months for Shyama and Fali Mistry to get married. But the marriage was not revealed in public for a long time for fear of film producers avoiding her to sign the new films.

Shyama spent her financially secured retired life, socializing with her close friends like Nanda, Shakeela, Waheeda Rehman, Jabeen Jaleel etc. Just about 5 years before her death, she got a paralysis attack making her movements restricted. However, she majorly recovered from the paralysis. She breathed her last on November 14, 2017 due to lung infections, leaving behind her two sons and a daughter. Her elder son, Faroukh Mistry is a Cinematographer in Hindi feature films and has directed many documentary and advertising films. The second son, Rohinton Mistry is settled in London as a businessman. Both her elder son and her daughter, Shirin were with her while she breathed her last.

As a tribute to Shyama on the occasion of her 4th Remembrance Day, I have chosen a song pictuirsed on her in the film ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958). This film was among four films in which Shyama acted opposite Johnny Walker in lead role. The other three films in this combination were ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Johnny Walker’ (1957) and ‘Mr Qartoon MA (1958). Incidentally, all these three films had OP Nayyar as the music director.

‘Khota Paisa’ (1958) had 7 songs of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Rajinder Krishan which were set to music by Madan Mohan. I am presenting the 6th song, “Ye Zaalim Nighaaon Ki Ghaat” which is sung by Asha Bhosle. It is a club song during which NA Ansari, the menacing pipe smoking villain, is present along with his henchmen.

It is interesting to note that in the record version there is some changes in wordings of the song as under:

Film Sound Track Version Record Version
Mukhda
ye zaalim NIGHAAON ki GHAAT
badi tikhi badi NATKHATI
Mukhda
ye zaalim MOHABBAT ki CHAAT
badi tikhi badi CHATPATI
Antara-2
GAA le ZARA jahaan mein
NAGMA to aashiqi kaajo NAYE pyaar ki RAT RATI
Antara-2
LE le MAZA jahaan mein
DAM BHAR LO aashiqi kaajo NA THHI pyaar ki PHATPATI
Antara-3
KATNE bhi de khushi se
ye BAHAAR ke zamaane
Antara-3
LOOTNE bhi de khushi se
ye PYAAR ke zamaane

Other features of this song is that Asha Bhosle seems to imitate the style of Geeta Dutt  and Madan Mohan’s musical composition of the song closely resembles that of OP Nayyar.

Song – Ye Zaalim Nigaahon Ki Ghaat (Khota Paisa) (1958) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
apne apne muqaddar ki baat
kiske hisse mein kitni bati
ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
jo nazar na milaayi
na jigar pe chot khaayi
us dil kaa faayda kya
jo kisi pe aa na jaaye
hai wo zindagi bhi koi zindagi
jo mohobbat kiye bin kati
ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
jo huwa na kisi ka
dushman hai zindagi ka
gaa le zara jahaan mein
nagma to aashiqi ka
tu jiya bhi to kya
do ghadi ke liye
jo na ye pyaar ki rat rati
ye zaalim nigaahon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
ye dil kaun jaane
lut jaaye kis bahaane
katne bhi de khushi se
hain bahaar ke zamaane
lut gaye dil kai
mit gaye dil kai
par mohobbat kabhi na ghati
ye zaalim nigaahon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
apne apne muqaddar ki baat
kiske hisse mein kitni bati

ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी
अपने अपने मुकद्दर की बात
किसके हिस्से में कितनी बटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

जो नज़र ना मिलाई
ना जिगर पे चोट खाई
उस दिल का फायदा क्या
जो किसी पे आ ना जाए
है वो ज़िंदगी भी कोई ज़िंदगी
जो मोहब्बत किए बिन कटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

जो हुआ ना किसी का
दुश्मन है ज़िंदगी का
गा ले ज़रा जहां में
नग़मा तो आशिक़ी का
तू जिआ भी तो क्या दो घड़ी के लिए
जो ना ये प्यार की रट रटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

ये दिल कौन जाने
लुट जाये किस बहाने
कटने भी दे खुशी से
हैं बहार के जमाने
लुट गए दिल कई
मिट गए दिल कई
पर मोहब्बत कभी ना घटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी
अपने अपने मुकद्दर की बात
किसके हिस्से में कितनी बटी

Blog Day :

4681 Post No. : 16361

We all are witnessing a once in a century pandemic that is taking a heavy toll of precious human lives. There is information overload on this topic. Much of the “information” that we are being bombarded with is not useful, and may even be harmful.

I have been observing all this. I have tried to figure out what is going on. I have tried to piece together useful information about this virus. Here I would present my take on this pandemic and how I think we should deal with the situation.

It seems that very few people actually have an idea how covid infection takes place and how it spreads. Awareness about how to protect oneself against this virus also seems low among people. The outcome of low awareness about this virus has led to disastrous consequences as we all have seen.

In a situation where most people are pressing the panic button and losing their heads, we need to take a calm look at things so that we know how to deal with this situation. I will try to keep it as simple and easy to understand as is possible.

covid 19 virus can be likened to a well trained terrorist group. It is trained and armed and indoctinated outside our borders. Then they are sent across the border to create terrorist acts within our border. Here terrorists are equivalent to covid 19 virus, whereas our country is like our body.

How do these terrorists cross the border ? If they find no security across the border, then they just sneak in unchallenged. If security is tight then they try to sneak in while their army resort to shelling across the border to divert the attention of our security forces. These terrorists then try to sneak in.

These terrorists, if they sneak in, try to create terror attacks wherever they can. If security is tight, then their attempts are foiled most of the time. If security is slack or the terrorists get local support then they are able to create serious damage.

If the terrorists are able to fan out inside the whole country then they can create terror attacks all over the country. All this happened in India with regularity not too far back. This is the most severe kind of terror attacks that India has seen.

With this background, that all Indians can readily identify with, I will try to explain how covid 19 virus acts in a similar way.

Covid 19 virus tries to gain entry into human body. It is a respiratory virus, so it can only enter our body through the external respiratory parts, viz nose and mouth, and also through eyes. So if our body is a country then nose and mouth and eyes are our border posts through which this virus tries to gain entry. When this virus was unknown, it had a free passage into the human body through nose and mouth of unsuspecting victims. When its existence became known then people began wearing masks. It is as if earlier the borders were unmanned but now they need tight security. Face masks are the border security force that that guard our entrances (nose and mouth).

If nose and mouth are guarded then still the virus may lurk in, seeking to enter when the guard is down, viz when the face mark is removed. People do remove face masks when they feel that there is no virus around. Virus lurks in the air, on the person, on clothes, exposed part of the body etc. If a person touches something (on his person or any object containing virus) and then touches his nose or mouth, this is the opening that the virus needed. It then enters the respiratory tract of the body. Now you know why there is so much stress on sanitising objects, hands etc. This also shows us what is the importance of six feet distance. If people stand far off, then the chances of virus getting transmitted from one person to another reduces considerably.

If despite all precautions, some virus enters the respiratory system, its quantity (viral load) will be low. If we are outright careless (no mask, no social distancing) then our respiratory system may receive a heavy viral load.

What happens when the virus manages to enter the respiratory system dodging the mask? It depends on the preparedness near the border.

Masks at the nose are like BSF who guard the border. If the terrorists cross the border, then they have to face the army, who are stationed near the border. In case of covid infection, the army that confronts the virus is known as body’ immunity system. It is basically white blood cells of blood. These WBC are the army soldiers to deal with the infiltrators. These WBCs are trained to tackle known viruses that they have tackled in the past. As soon as they come across a previously known virus, they are immediately able to mobilise anti bodies to tackle that virus. The antibodies can be readily and rapidly deployed. On the other hand, when a new virus, viz covid 19 virus enters about which the WBCs have no previous information, then WBCs take some time to get prepared. As WBCs gather more information about the new virus, they begin to create anti bodies to tackle the virus. But for a new virus, especially if a heavy viral load had entered the respiratory system, the WBCs response may turn out to be slow and inadequate. In the meanwhile the virus is able to do considerable damage to the respiratory system. By the time the WBCs begin to create antibodies, it may be too late.

So, If the viral load is less, then the virus is stopped there itself. If viral load is heavy and the person is not vaccinated then the virus may overwhelm the immunity system and enter further into the body, namely the lungs. Lungs are like the different states of the country. The terrorists have now spread throughout the country, and now they can wreak severe damage. The security in the interior of the country is in the hands of police, which is far too ill equipped to deal with such security threats than the army. Same is the case with the immunity system of the body, which is helpless if the virus gains access to the lungs.

Let us say that the person was already vaccinated. In that case, the immunity system was familiar with this virus. So as soon as the virus entered the respiratory system, the WBCs, being already aware about the nature of the virus, will be able to deploy antibodies immediately. So a vaccinated body is like a country with a strong well trained and well prepared army near the border. In that case most of the infiltrating virus would get neutralised there itself.

If the immunity is weak and person is not vaccinated, then the virus overwhelms the resistance at the entrance and invades the lungs. In that situation, the virus starts rapidly infecting the lungs that are unprotected and are now at their mercy. The virus damages the alveoli (tiny air sacs). The function of the alveolus is to transfer oxygen to the blood vessels. These blood vessels or capillaries carry the oxygen to the RBCs (Red blood cells). It is the RBCs that finally deliver the oxygen to all the internal organs in the body.

The virus works by damaging the wall and the lining of the alveolus and capillaries. The debris from the damage(exudate) , which is plasma protein accumulates on the alveolus wall and thickens the lining. As the walls’ thicken, the transfer of oxygen to the red blood cells is impaired. The thicker the wall gets, the more difficult it gets to transfer oxygen to the red blood cells, which causes difficulty in breathing as the body is running short of oxygen. And the lack of oxygen to the internal organs results in a deficit in the body and impairs the functioning of the organs. At this juncture, the body fights to increase oxygen intake.

And the first response of the body is to destroy the virus and prevent its replication, but if the individual has weaker immunity then the body is unable to stop the virus, and this aggravates the crisis.

As the air sacs are damaged, there is an influx of liquid which is mostly inflamed cells and protein and this fluid build-up leads to pneumonia. This further impairs the oxygen intake by the lungs and hinders the oxygen exchange. Due to the novelty of the Covid 19 strain, there is no immediate treatment to directly cure pneumonia in Covid 19 patients and they are mostly given supportive care.

There are some key indicators that the doctors use to judge the onset and severity of this severe condition called Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in infected individuals:

(1)Hypoxia – Low oxygen levels in the blood, due to damage to the alveolus

(2)Breathing difficulties and shortness of breath

(3)Chest x-rays of the lungs exhibit an opaque and glassy look against the black background

(4)Worsening symptoms over the course of time, from the day of detection of the virus

Is there no hope if the virus reach the lungs ? There is ! And it is this fact which is the most important thing to understand about this virus. The ammunition of the virus gets exhausted in nine days and so the virus gets ineffective nine days after it enters the body. If the damage to the body can be kept as low as possible though medication and other means then after nine days the recovery process begins. So the patient must be kept alive for nine days. If it can be achieved then he or she will survive. Forget low damage, even patients who suffered over 80% damage to their lungs have survived !

Virus may have become ineffective but it may have taken a heavy toll on the lungs by that time. The patient must lie prone on his/ her tummy and try to clear the contents of the lungs by coughing them out. Coughed up exudate (phlegm) would be variously coloured when the infection is severe. After a few days the colour would keep changing, from catechu colour (most severe) to black color (less severe)and finally as the infection reduces, the phlegm would become white. Finally phlegm would stop.

As the phlegm comes out, space is created in the lung and that makes breathing easier. Patients who are hospitalised and they have oxygen fitted on them mistakenly believe that they only have to keep lying down passively without doing anything. Not taking any proactive action to clear up the phlegm in their lungs is a mistake because in that case the situation will keep getting worse because the oxygen being pumped into their lungs will have no place to go in the lungs. If oxygen cannot reach the lungs then naturally they cannot be sent to RBC and from there to various parts of the body, and that would lead to serious complications.

It is seen that not just patients, even medical practitioners are often not very helpful (mainly because of their lack of experience). For instance, when a patient goes for chest x ray or HRCT, the report just states the facts, without any expert and helpful comments. A typical (and actual) HRCT report stated- “CT severity score of -36/40”

What will a normal patient do on reading the above ! He/ she will most probably die of shock if not covid because it indicates that the damage to the lung is over 80 %. Fortunately, the above patient happened to be the sister of my wife. My wife told her sister that she did not have to worry. The virus had done all it could and now the lung condition was only going to improve. To make space in the lungs, she advised her sister to do exercises that would expel the phlegm (technical term for this substance is exudate) stuck in her lungs. My wife’s sister followed the advice scrupulously. There was noticeable improvement in her condition. After a couple of weeks, her scan showed perfectly clear lung condition !

It was not the first case where my wife helped save a life. Last year, her brother too had suffered from covid and he too had delayed getting himself checked and treated, leading to a lung condition that was even worse. Even there, correct and timely advice by my wife helped save the life of her brother.

In my wife’s opinion, Rohit Sardana, the news anchor faced a similar situation as faced by her brother and sister and he could have been saved if he had received correct medical advice of the kind that she gave to her brother and sister. In Rohit Sardana’s case, he was in home isolation and he was making good recovery and was feeling better. It was on the advice of some well meaning colleague that he got his HRCT done. The HRCT showed similar severity as in case of my sister in law. But Rohit Sardana did not have the advantage of a good doctor’s advice who would tell him that the worst was over for him. Looking at the severity of his lung report, he went into shock and got himself admitted to a hospital, where he died soon thereafter.

So, to summarise all the above discussion, it can be said that the best protection against covid 19 is a properly worn mask. Do all in your ability to ensure that the virus cannot enter your respiratory system. The virus can enter your respiratory system only through nose and mouth (and in exceptional cases through eyes). Protect these entrances to your respiratory system with your life. If in rare cases virus does get in, only a light load of virus gets in if you have taken precautions, so that your present immunity system can deal with it. Do not be foolhardy to offer a free passage to the virus by going around without mask. Allowing a huge viral load to enter your respiratory system believing that you have a great immunity system is nothing but suicide. Such people will be mercilessly shown their mortality by the virus. Once the virus attacks your lung, then you will be forced to run around from pillar to post, but all these efforts will largely be fruitless. A mask costing a few rupees, and a disciplined lifestyle is more effective in preventing covid than all that desperate scramble clamouring for hospital beds, oxygen, remdesivir etc, and all that at black market prices.

And please get yourself vaccinated at the first opportunity available. India is one of the few countries that can produce its own vaccines and so India is not dependent on foreign supplies (which are difficult to come by). Most people are getting it for free in government facilities. but if some private hospitals are offering it against payment, then pay for it, avoid long waiting lists of government hospitals and get yourself vaccinated. Paying a few hundreds, or even a couple of thousands of rupees for the doses of this vaccine is fully worth it as will protect you from this deadly virus.

While discussing this deadly respiratory disease, I had decided that this article should be accompanied by a song dealing with “Saans”. The first “saans” song that I was reminded of was this song of “Aashiqui”(1990) but I thought that this song was already covered. On checking up, I heaved a sigh of relief (pun unintended) because this song was not yet covered in the blog.

Produced by Gulshan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt, “Aashiqui”(1990) had Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal, Reema Lagoo, Deepak Tijori, Avtar Gill, Tom Alter, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Sunil Rege, Homi Wadia, Anang Desai etc in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

This movie turned out to be a musical blockbuster. The story of the movie was quite run of the mill and no great shakes, but the music made the movie a super duper hit.

The song under discussion has two versions. THe movie begins with the male version sung by Kumar Sanu. This song is picturised as a hotel/ club song. Rahul Roy lip syncs the song. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The female version song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal. Its video does not seem to be available. I had watched this movie in New Delhi and I vaguely recall having seen the female version also. But its video does not seem to be available now. In any case, it was the male version which was the more popular.

The song likens the need for a “sanam” to the need for “saans”. We take “saans” for granted, but not any longer, seeing the clamour of medical oxygen in these times. One never imagined that a time may come when one would be willing to pay money to be able to breath oxygen artificially. God has given us the ability to breathe this air for free. Let us hope that we will continue to be able to avail of this gift of being able to breathe naturally.

Today (12 May 2021) is also International Nurses’ day. On this occasion, let us all hail and appreciate the great service that they and other medical personnel are rendering in combating this pandemic.
