Today (5 July 2022) is the 5100th day for the blog.

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17034

Regulars may have noticed lack of activity in the blog on my part for the last ten odd days. From June 25 till June 28, 7 posts were published and all these articles were posted by Sudhir jee. I had specifically requested him on 24 June 2022 that “it will be difficult for me to find time for publishing new posts from 24 june till 27 June. So I request you to uphold the blog flag for these four days.”

Sudhir jee had promised to do the needful, viz ensuring that we had at least one post on each of these days. He ended up publishing four posts on 27 June 2022, prompted by an over-enthusiastic Avinash Scrapwala, who sent many RD Burman write ups on that day for publication. 🙂

I was extremely busy from the evening of 23 June till noon of 28 June. I was journeying throughout these days, crisscrossing various places, never staying in one place for more than one day. I was in mission mode to achieve mission critical tasks where Icould not afford to fail.

What exactly were there mission critical tasks ?

Convocation ceremony of 2016 batch of MBBS students of LTMMC was to take place on 24 June. As proud parents of our daughter who was among the one hundred plus MBBS students successfully completing their course and internship from LTMMC (Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical college), I and my wife obviously had to be present in Mumbai on this occasion. I took an evening flight from Gorakhpur to Mumbai on 23 june and arrived Mumbai at around 9 PM. My wife, who was at Bhopal, took an evening train (Punjab Mail) at Rani Kamlapati and arrived Mumbai on the morning of 24 June.

The convocation ceremony took place at the iconic Shanmukhananda auditorium of Mumbai, which is located close to LTMMC in Sion, Mumbai. I had read about this famous auditorium many times. Many well known cultural programs have taken place in this auditorium. Portraits of some legendary artists hang on the walls of the auditorium.

The convocation ceremony, which was supposed to start at 10 AM, started late, after 12 noon. The 2700 plus seat capacity auditorium was full of relatives of the students. While there were many from Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, several sets of parents and relatives had come from all over India, and some from abroad as well.

The 14 dignitaries (including six ladies) who were welcomed and seated on the dais were the “who is who” of medical fraternity in Mumbai.

The function was not a boring affair. These convocations held at Mumbai are very much like the film city functions, full of songs and dances. The students entered the hall dancing to some new popular Hindi movie songs, which I was obviously oblivious of. 🙂 They then took their seats in the front rows of the auditorium.

All the 14 dignitaries gave their speeches. That was followed by the function where individual students were called by name and handed over their certificates, medals etc. It was quite filmy ishtyle program. The name of the student and his/her details would be announced. Then a filmy song would play and the student would make a grand entry on the stage, dancing to that tune. Most of these tunes were new (unfamiliar to me), but I was happy to note that some of the students danced to the tunes of 1970s and 1980s Hindi movie songs as well. 🙂

The medals and certificate distribution went on till after 2 PM. then it was lunch break. After lunch break, four videos, prepared and shot by the students themselves, that showed their stay during these years in the college, were played. My daughter was co producer, director, (and actor too) in one of these videos. 🙂

It was evening when the gala function finally came to a close. The hectic and satisfying day had passed, but another hectic day awaited the two of us the next day. I and my wife had to catch an early morning flight to Gorakhpur the next day (25 June 2022).

We checked in to a hotel near the airport on the night of 24 June. We woke up at 4 AM in the morning and left for the airport. The flight was at 6 AM. We arrived Gorkhpur before time at 8 AM on 25 June which was a Saturday. After arriving at home, I (rather my wife), got busy in the task that was upon us. 90 % of the household items, including the car had already been sent to Bhopal in February 2022. The remaining items were now required to be packed and loaded on a truck to be dispatched to Bhopal. This work is normally done by professional packers, but my wife does it herself.

The truck was dispatched in the afternoon. Then we went to the gas agency and surrendered the gas connection.

The most important ‘item’ that we needed to shift was not luggage, but the two pets, namely Bhole and Izza. The cat had been shifted to Bhopal in February and that was less challenging because the cat went in our car along with wife and daughter. Taking the dogs by car for 1000 km was out of question because the car was no longer there in Gorakhpur. Moreover, the junior dog, Izza, is a very poor road traveller and she gets sick at the prospect of a road travel.

Fortuitously, there was one direct train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal the very next morning (26 June 2022). It is the only train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal that has an AC first coach in it. According to Railway rules, dogs can be taken either in dog box kept in Guard van (an unrealistic rule) or in AC first coach, if fellow passengers do not object. The best way to eliminate fellow passengers’ objection is to ensure that we book a two berth coupe (there are two such coupes in AC first coach). I had asked my staff to sound out the person who allots berths in the train including AC first that we should be allotted a two berth coupe.

But that is not all. Dogs are needed to be booked on the train. You need to have health certificate for them issued by a vet who certifies that they are fit to travel by train. That certificate is produced at the parcel office along with owners’ ticket and ID proof. Then a ticket is issued for the dogs allowing then to travel by train. Mostly, this booking of pets takes place one hour before the train has to start and the pets must be presented at the booking office. But that was a very challenging scenario. Gorakhpur Railway station is a very vast Railway station. The parcel booking office is in platform number one, whereas the train leaves from platform number nine. The two platforms are like two terminals of Mumbai Airport. So I sent my staff to convince the parcel officials to issue the pets documents earlier, if possible.

Next morning, my staff, who had reached the station at 5 AM, phoned me informing me that the tickets for the pets had been booked. Booked without taking the pets to the parcel office ! That was a big relief. So we directly reached at platform nine. There is a road running parallel to the platform. So we reached close to our coach and boarded the train along with the pets and luggage.The staff who had got the pets ticket booked handed me the document. I profusely thanked the staff, but failed to notice that the ticket price was Rs 400/-. However, I paid the money to the staff later.

After some initial discomfiture, both dogs, including Izza made themselves comfortable. Bhole, as is his wont being a down to earth dog, preferred to sit down on the floor. I made Izza sit on the lower berth and she soon made herself comfortable there, much to our relief.

Though we had sent most of our luggage earlier, but subsequently my wife discovered some more items that needed to be carried with us. So our luggage had become considerable. In Gorakhpur, the staff took care of carrying the luggage. I needed similar help at Bhopal. So I phoned the mechanical officer at Bhopal and requested for the help of his staff in carrying my luggage. The train arrived Bhopal before time at 8:40 PM (scheduled arrival time was 8:55 PM). The luggage and pets were deboarded.

Our daughter, after her convocation on 24 June had taken a morning flight to Bhopal on 25 June. She was to receive us at Bhopal. All the luggage and the two pets were somehow accommodated in the car. Izza, whom I was holding in the front passenger seat was putting up a stiff fight. Somehow I managed to restrain her while we arrived at the home. So our pets were successfully transported from Gorakhpur to Bhopal.

Next morning (27 June), the daughter had to go back to Mumbai. She drove the car herself to the airport. In the return direction, I drove the car back to the home. By the time we arrived home and had our breakfast etc, the daughter had already reached Mumbai. 🙂

I had my train back towards Gorakhpur in the afternoon. The train got delayed by about three hours. I boarded the train in the evening instead of afternoon, and arrived Gorakhpur at noon of 28 June, instead of morning.

If I was busy till morning on 28 June, the other engagements for the next three days were even more important. It is just that I did not have to travel on these days.

The residence items had all been sent. So I needed some other accommodation at Gorakhpur. I had already booked a transit accommodation room in a Railway Officers rest house. I went there. After getting ready, I went to office and sent the quarter vacation memo to the concerned officials. I asked my staff to find out all the clearances that are required to be taken and to take them promptly. It turned out that clearances from five different departments (electricity, telephone etc.) is needed. My staff got busy arranging for these clearances, while I got busy doing things that needed my presence.

Though we had submitted the gas cylinders and regulator two days earlier, but papers were not given on that day because the dealer was unavailable. I went to the gas agency and waited for an hour before the concerned person arrived and I could take the relevant document with me.

In the evening, there was one get together in the Railway Museum in my honor. Looking at my hectic schedule, the organizers of the function were wondering whether I would be able to attend this function. I managed to attend it. When I was asked to give a speech on the occasion, I gave a long speech, all extempore of course.

The next day, viz 29 June 2022 was rather sedate by comparison as there were no pressing engagements on that day. There was one function in the evening where my staff working directly under me honored me. There too I gave one extempore speech. My contents in this speech were different from my speech of 28 June 2022. 🙂

The next date, viz 30 June 2022 was the all important day. More than the day, I was interested in the next day, the pehli taareekh,viz 1 July 2022, when I had an early morning train to Bhopal. It was the same train in which we had transported our pets from Gorakhpur to Bhopal on 26 June 2022.

I spent the morning of 30 June 2022 packing my stuff. I was under strict instructions from my wife not to leave anything behind, not to misplace anything, and complete my packing well in advance etc. I was trying to do all that but as always, I had to leave my packing till last moment, even though my train was early morning on 1 July 2022.

In the office, I tried to clean up my stuff from almirahs, computers etc. In the computer I had logged in to my accounts of WordPress, Gmail, Office365 etc. I tried to log off from most of them but I ran out of time.

There was a function in the afternoon in HQ meeting hall headed by AGM (Additional General Manager). It was followed by a function in our own mechanical department.

Final program of the day was organised in Railway Officers club at night. Officers and their spouses were present in good number on the occasion. It was organised to honor four people including me. After cultural programs, it was time for speeches. When it was time for my speech, I gave another extempore speech. It was a lighthearted speech containing fun facts that was well received by the audience. I also mentioned the song blog towards the end of my speech. I mentioned that I had a Hindi movie songs related site called Atul Song A Day, ASAD in short. Till today, it was ASAD Gorakhpuri, from tomorrow it will be ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

The speeches were followed by dinner. Some of the guests complimented me for my witty speech, which I had thought up at the spur of the moment.

The club day was over at 10:30 PM. I went back to rest house, tried to complete the packing, but I could see that some packing could only be done at the last moment. I set alarm for 4 AM in my mobile and tried to go to sleep.

It was the alarm that woke me up. Then I realized that I had to get ready for the early morning train. I took bath, packed the remaining stuff, and checked to see that nothing was left behind. The car driver was supposed to arrive at 5 :30 AM. My luggage was all packed. All dues of all people (milkman, newsman, the person who booked my pets) were paid. My mobile which gets discharge very fast was plugged in for charging.

The car arrived. I got the stuff loaded in the car, handed over the key to the reception, and left for the station. Halfway towards the station, I pressed my left pant pocket and realized that my mobile was not there. I had forgotten the mobile back in the room. I asked the driver to turn back, the key was again taken from reception. The mobile, plugged in the power socket, was taken along with the charger. Heaving a big sigh of relief, I restarted for the station.

The train, unlike on 26 June 2022, started late. This train kept getting delayed because it went from a much longer diverted route and that took seven hours longer to reach Bhopal. The train, that was supposed to arrive Bhopal at 8:55 PM on 1 July arrived Bhopal at 4:20 AM on 2 July 2022. My luggage had become sizable and I needed to help of Railway staff this time too. The staff arrived to carry my luggage after I had already unloaded them from the train. Just as I was thinking that I may have to wait, I found my wife entering the platform. So, she had arrived to receive me, along with her sister this time. All the luggage was easily accommodated in her sister’s MUV and we left for the Bhopal home. We arrived there when it was early morning.

Why all these hectic activities ? “Blame” my birthday for this which took place on 20 June. That birthday, unlike the previous birthdays meant that it was finally time to say goodbye to Railway service. In other words, I was to retire on 30 June 2022. All the hectic engagements and functions were being held for that reason.

I am very happy and relieved that I managed to overcome all the logistical challenges successfully without any failure anywhere. It was quite a logistical challenge and it took some meticulous planning and co operation of many that led to successful executions of all the plans that were laid out.

To cut a long story short, with effect from 1 July 2022, I am a retired person settled in Bhopal. So this blog is now officially ASAD Bhopali. 😀

Today (5 July 2022) happens to be the 5100th day for the blog. It is an appropriate occasion for me to break this news to the readers of the blog. 🙂

On this occasion, I have chosen a song from ‘Sher e Watan’ (1971). It was directed by Harbans for New Sunrise Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Dara Singh, Nishi, Rajan Haksar, Nadira, Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Bhagwan, Roopali, Pal Sharma, Dhanraj, Saudagar Singh, Prakash, Trilok Singh, Uma Khosla, Bramhachari etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has already been covered in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. The song is picturised on two females where one plays the role of a male by attaching a thin mustache under her nose.

Usha Khanna is the music director. The main reason why I chose this song is that it is penned by Asad Bhopali. 😀

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This rarely heard song is a song that grows on you as you get exposed to this song.

It is a nice feeling to be able to join the club of our seniors. Hopefully I will be able to have an active and fruitful second innings like them. 🙂

Blog Day : 4208 Post No. : 15402

“Chandan”(1971) was produced and directed by Kewal Mishra for Kewal Art Production, Bombay. The movie had The movie had Som Dutt, Joginder Shelly, Komal aka Poonam Sinha, Jayashree.T., Zeb Rehman, Dilip Dutt, Ramesh Deo, Ram Mohan, Birbal, Mohan Choti, V.Gopal, Kishan, Meenakshi, Renu Joshi, M.Sahgal, Coca cola, Dhanraj, Asi Dutt, Kishan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

Som Dutt, the brother of Sunil Dutt, was launched by Sunil Dutt with “Man Ka Meet”(1968). Instead of Som Dutt gettinmg launched, that film helped Vinod Khanna getting launched.

It can be seen that Kewal Mishra saw enough in Som Dutt to sign him up as the hero for his movie. Seeing that the movie ended up belly up at the box office. I have no idea what he thought about this flop venture of his.

Not just the movie, even its songs ended up as forgotten.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. That was in 2013. While covering that song, I had mentioned that I had never heard of that movie and the song. Same can be said about this song under discussion as well. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mukesh. Omkar Verma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi.

The song is picturised as a typical chhed chhad turning into love kind of song on Komal (later better known as wife of Shatrughan Sinha) and Som Dutt. I found it a nice hummable song the very first time I listed to it.


Song-Ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan (Chandan)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh, Lyrics-Omkar Verma, MD-Sonik Omi

Lyrics

ho kaahe chhede
ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri baali umariya
ja ja ja
ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri baali umariya
o
oho ri gori hoga tera ehsaan
milaa le zara mujhse najariya

na na na na na
kaahe chhede mujhe re beiman
abhi hai meri baali umariya

masti bhari ye teri chikni jawaani
bol hai ri gori kiske liye

arre ja re deewaane tere jaise kayi
dekh ke re mujhe fisla kiye
masti bhari ye teri chikni jawaani
bol hai ri gori kiske liye

ja ja re deewaane tere jaise kayi
dekh ke re mujhe fisla kiye
ho gori sadiyon se main hoon tera deewaana
o chal deewaane tu paas mere aana na
tu maar dil pe najar ka nishaana
ho aaj ye shikaari bana anjaan
dekho ji dekho pakde machhariya
sun le sun le
ho gori hoga tera ehsaan
milaa le zara mujhse najariya

kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri bali umariya

jhootha hai tu re daghaabaaz chhaliya
dil mein re tere chor chhupa hai
oho mujhko hi samhje hai tu chor goriye
tujhpe mera jahaan luta hai

haaye jhoothha hai tu re daghaabaaz chhaliya
dil mein re tere chor chhupa hai
oho mujhko hi samhje hai tu chor goriye
tujhpe mera jahaan luta hai

o teri baaton pe main na aitbaar karoon
ho gori janmon se tujhko main to pyaar karoon
o sun deewaane zamane se dar tu
o gori kahna mera zara maan
banaa le mujhe apna sanwariya

“Daawat”(1974) was produced by Dilip Dutt and directed by B R Ishaara. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Dilip Dutt, Raza Murad, Satish Kaul, Sarita, Manmohan Krishnan, Jaishree Gadkar, Johnny Walker, Pammi etc in it.

This obscure movie had four obscure songs in it. Here is the first song from “Daawat”(1974) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

Only the audio of the song is available. Lisateing to the song, one can guess that it is a “sulking-appeasing” genre of song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, “Daawat”(1974) makes its debut in the blog.

Song-Aise bhi na roothho tum ke jeena mushqil ho (Daawat)(1974) Singers-Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Bipin Babul

Lyrics

aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
ja re piya jaana nahin toone mere dil ko
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho

dil mera leke yoon na dil ka karaar lo
mukhde pe bikhri si zulfen sanwaar lo
dil mera leke yoon na dil ka karaar lo
mukhde pe bikhri si zulfen sanwaar lo
ghadiyaan ye pyaar ki na beete takraar mein
rang bhari shaam galey mil ke guzaar lo
ja re piya jaaana nahin toone mere dil ko
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho

ja ja ke mile tu shahar ke ujaalon se
rista hi kya hai
rista hi kya hai tera ab gaanv waalon se
mujhko hansaaye kabhi mujhe rulaaye tu
mujhko hansaaye kabhi mujhe rulaaye tu
samjha hai toone kya khilauna mere dil ko

aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho

jitne bharam hain wo dil se nikaal do
chupke se baahen meri baahon mein daal do
waada karo ke kabhi tum nahin todoge
waada karo ke kabhi tum nahin todoge
wada karo ke kabhi tum nahin todoge
piya mere sapnon ke sheesh mahal ko

aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
ja re piya jaana nahin toone mere dil ko
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho
aise bhi na rootho tum ke jeena mushqil ho

Today, the 11th of October, is the birthday of Amitabh Bachchan, superstar, legend, colossus, role model, vagaira, vagaira, vagaira.

Just to clarify, the vagairas here are not meant to demean Mr. Bachchan in any way. Rather, they are meant to stress the fact that there are so many facets to his personality that I stopped trying to list them, after just a few. So no offence of any sort meant.

Today (11 october 2015) is the 73rd birth anniversary of Amitabh Bachchan (11 october 1942). From his date of birth, it can be seen that he was born a few months after the Quit India movement. Inspired by that movement, he was initially named “Inquibaab”. He was later renamed Amitabh on the suggestion of Hindi poet Sumitranandan Pant who was a close friend of Amitabh’s father, poet Hariwanshrai Bachchan.

kuchh jodiyaan duniya mein bahut kam milti hain
magar jab milti hain to ghazab ka aalam hota hai

There are combinations of artists that have created some wondrous songs and music. But the disappointment at times is that these artist may have had really very few opportunities to work with each other. Yesterday, as I started to select some songs to post for today to celebrate Mukesh’s anniversary, this thought came to my mind. And I started to look for some songs that Mukesh has sung under the music direction of Jaidev. Just putting together these two names, sounds like a great combination that expected would be creating some wonderful gems together.

A few days ago I heard this song on my mobile. There is huge collection of songs, come from where in my mobile I do not know. When the instrument was new, my daughter was trying out all functions in it. She has downloaded many old songs. This has to be one of them. For one born in 1990’s the 1970’s songs are old. I am getting to know what songs are there only now, since I thought to make use of the cache.
