‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 50
——————————————-

Khud samajh lo ke iltijaa kya hai
Hamhin keh den to phir mazaa kya hai

Iltijaa= Request, desire

The matla (first) she’r of the above ghazal penned by Arzoo Lucknawi is apparently addressed to the ‘maashooqa’ (beloved) by ‘aashiq’ (lover) saying that the former should get a hint, may be the way he talks and treat the beloved, as to what is his request or what he is desirous of. There is no fun if he reveals his request/desire.

‘ऊ’
“ऊंची एड़ी है मांग टेड़ी टेड़ी दुपट्टा रंगदार कर के”

I am glad that I posted this song when I did. As per my search, this is possibly the last song of Rafi Sb that starts with ‘ऊ’, and not yet posted on our blog. Just made it by cat’s whiskers. Otherwise, I would have been expressing regrets, just like for ‘ई’. 🙂

Comedians were given due importance in old time films in general and in the Golden Era in particular. This fact can be noticed in movies produced from late 40s to late 60s.

Good, quality comedians entered films and succeeded. Roles were created and written for them and songs were filmed on them. A variety of comedy was offered to the audience. Slapstick comedy, situational comedy, farce, physical comedy and comedy of events- all these were lapped up by the public. Comedians like Dikshit and Ghori, V.H.Desai, Gope, Yaqub, Noor Mohd. Charlie became indispensable parts of films being produced those days.

Yes, it is that monsoon season. Monsoon has made the Mumbai city and the surrounds all “jal thal’. What came as welcome relief from the heat soon turned to a deluge, causing disruption.

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 7

“I’m…fine. I’m just sorry you had to wander under the little black cloud that’s been following me around all day. That’s probably why I nearly ran you over earlier, and why you got stuck with me now.”

Refusing to consider what else could go wrong, she aimed a commendably calm smile at him. If she’d learned anything from her years in advertising, it was that perception was everything. If you appeared in control, everyone thought you were.

“The good news is that it’s me, not you, and that bad days get better.”

“What about bad weeks?”

“Those are the ones that build character.” Or so her grandma said.

“Bad months?” he asked, and watched as her smile made it to her eyes. Something knowing shifted in those doe-brown depths.

“That’s when you need to find something to do that takes you away from your problems for a while. Whatever you’re dealing with won’t go away,” she warned him,“but for that hour or that day, you have taken away its power over you.”

The above is just a portion of some pulp fiction that I keep reading every now and than. When there is nothing good to read, usually after the Sudoku in the newspapers is done and i have read the usual article’s that are readable in the newspaper. Some times these books have these ” nuggets of wisdom ” or some portions where a lot is said like in the above portion. I had copied and saved in the drafts to use for a suitable song some months back, though it has no connection with the song post here.
