Blog Day :

5140 Post No. : 17100

We in this blog regularly publish song posts everyday without a fail. The last date when no post appeared in the blog was 25 December 2019 (Blog day number 4177). Today (14 August 2022) is the 5140th day for the blog. So there has been no DOT day for the blog during last 973 days !

When we are this regular, then song posts add up and before we realize, we arrive at the next century mark. The previous century mark was a big occasion when we reached a round figure of 17000 song posts.

Nowadays only one or two songs posts appear in a day whereas more than six songs used to appear daily in the blog ten years ago, as we have been noticing while discussing songs under our Blog Ten Year Challenge series. Even then we reach our centuries fairly regularly. The 17000th song post appeared on 2 June 2022. Today, on 14 august 2022, that is 63 days later, we arrive at the next century song post, namely song post number 17100 !

This is a century song post with some difference. It is the first century post for the blog after the blog became ASAD Bhopali. In other words, it is the first century post after I superannuated from my Railway service and settled down at Bhopal. If I or others thought that the pace of the blog will pick up, that has not happened. In any case, we nowadays are not much concerned about the pace at which we are going. We just ensure that no day should be a DOT date.

The century post is always a special post that showcases a song that is special in one way or the other. All the 170 century songs (yes we have had that many century posts in the blog) have been very special songs. Assuming each of these song to be 3 minutes long, listening to all these songs non stop will require 510 minutes, viz 8 hours 30 minutes ! Assuming someone sets out to listen to all the 17100 songs at the same rate of 3 minutes per song, he will need 51300 minutes, which is 855 hours viz nearly 36 days (non stop round the clock) worth of music !

Regulars have actually listened to all these songs. I, who has published bulk of these song posts have actually listened to all these songs multiple times !

So one can have some rough idea of how much time has gone into the effort of bringing all this collection together at one place. And this is by now an online collaboration of nearly two dozen like minded music lovers who have been putting on enormous amount of time and effort and love into this ongoing online project of collecting and piecing together authentic information about the glorious history of Hindi movie music.

As a result of our collective effort, we have showcased songs from over 4600 movies. More than 1000 singers, more than 800 lyricists and more than 500 music directors are already represented in the blog. 1329 movies have already been YIPPEEE’D.

The above figures may not look very impressive to the uninitiated, but the initiated persons will know that this is perhaps the only place online where all this information is available at one place. For instance, many of the YIPPEEE’D movies had songs that are rare songs. Those missing songs have been specially located and uploaded by us (more specifically by Sudhir Ji). Similarly a few of the special songs (including century songs) were special songs that were uploaded for the first time online while those special posts were published.

During the process of our posts, We found songs that were incorrectly credited in HFGK. we have come across songs that did not find mention in HFGK. We also had occasions when new information about songs and artists were received from comments made by knowledgeable sources. Sometimes even close relatives of the artists commented on our posts and shared invaluable information with us.

All the above facts are extremely satisfying to us who are associated with the blog in various capacities. We feel that we in our own small ways, are contributing our mite to human knowledge . With time, our contribution may find more appreciation, I am sure of it.

I started thinking about a song for the occasion only at the last moment which is my wont these days. I finally zeroed in on this song from ‘Nav Durga’ (1953).

‘Nav Durga’ was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Babubhai Mistri for Basant Pictures Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Mahipal, SN Tripathi, Sulochana Chatterji, Amarnath, Agha Shapur, Raja Sandow etc. in it. The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far.

The song being discussed is sung by two sisters. We have hundreds of songs sung by Mangeshkar sisters, but there were other sisters too in HFM. But duets sung by these sisters are few and far between. Suman Kalyanpur (nee Hemadi) has sung a few duets with her sisters, such as Shyama Chittar (nee Hemadi). Geeta Dutt too had a sister called Laxmi Roy, but her sister sang very few songs before vanishing from the HFM after her marriage.

The song under discussion is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy) and Laxmi Roy. Ramesh Chandra Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by SN Tripathi. This is a joyous song. Geeta Dutt sings initial stanzas. Laxmi Roy’s voice appears towards the later half of the song.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement that is providing us with the energy to drive this musical bandwagon on and on. Let this musical bandwagon roll on and on for many more centuries of songs.

आई बहार किए सोलह सिंगार
हो ओ ओ
आई बहार किए सोलह सिंगार
सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा

बगिया में छाई उमंग है
आज फूलों में प्रीतम का रंग है
हो ओ
फूलों में प्रीतम का रंग है
बगिया में छाई उमंग है
आज फूलों में प्रीतम का रंग है
हो ओ
फूलों में प्रीतम का रंग है
होठों में प्यास लिए
मिलने की आस लिए
दुल्हन ने घूँघट उतारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा

आई बहार किए सोलह सिंगार
सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा
हो सखी चमका उमंगों का तारा

मुखड़ा गुलाब सा है प्यारा
झूले नन्हा सा राजा दुलारा
ओ झूले नन्हा सा राजा दुलारा
मुखड़ा गुलाब सा है प्यारा
झूले नन्हा सा राजा दुलारा
ओ झूले नन्हा सा राजा दुलारा
मैया की गोद भरी
नैनों को ज्योत मिली
जगमग है आँगन हमारा
हो सखी
चमका है नैनों का तारा
चमका है नैनों का तारा
हो सखी
चमका है नैनों का तारा

आई बहार किए सोलह सिंगार
सखी चमका है नैनों का तारा
हो सखी चमका है नैनों का तारा
सखी चमका है नैनों का तारा
हो सखी चमका है नैनों का तारा
