Blog Day : 3655 Post No. : 14515

Regulars of this blog know that we in this blog have had a few events that were eagerly anticipated and looked forward to. The event of the blog clocking 10000th is still fresh in everyone’s mind.

10000 is a round figure but we subsequently managed to create anticipation for some unusual numbered posts as well- what we called honky tonk numbers. Post number 11111 in the blog was a very special number. People began to make guesses about the song that was likely to become song post number 11111 in the blog. There were tell tale signals and clues that regulars could work on. By the time the target approached closer, regulars, after some false leads began to close in on the correct song. By the time the event arrived, people had already guessed (correctly) about the song that was going to be song post number 11111 in the blog.

That song was a very special song. It had the voices of four major singers of HFM, namely Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh and Lata. And that song was the only occasion when these four singers had come together to sing a movie song.

How did our regulars guess that this song was going to be song number 11111 ? They noticed that the number of songs by these singers in the blog were approaching their 90s. By the time the blog reached song number 11104, all the four singers were on their respective nervous 99s. So once people realised this fact so they began to look for songs that contained all the four voices . And soon enough they zeroed in on the song of “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) namely Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen (Amar Akbar Anthony) .

That was in 2015. A similar exercise has been undertaken in 2018 as well, but this time secrecy has been maintained so well that no regulars have apparently got any wind of it. Four major singers are once again approaching their respective 99s but no regulars seem to have noticed it. 🙂

Even if they somehow noticed it, and guess that a song containing all these four voices was to be covered, would they have guessed the song this time ? Difficult to say.

While on my mission of YIPPying movies on the blog, I had posted the seventh song (out of eight) of “Pyaar Kiye Ja”(1966) in december 2017. Then I decided against posting the final song and YIPPYing the movie, even though the song was readily available. Reason ? I discovered that this song was a SPECIAL song. It was sung by four major HFM singers, viz. Lata, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. So, it occured to me that I should try something along the lines of the “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) song. But it was easier said than done. All these four artists were far far away from their respective centuries. Moreover, posting of songs in the blog nowadays is not as prolific as it used to be during 2011 to 2014. So I decided to be patient. So it is after patiently posting relevant songs that all the four singers finally reached their 99s.

My plan was to coincide the posting of this song with the date of 19 july 2018 when the blog would have turned TEN years old. But I was unable to stick to this target for various reasons.

Now, two days later, things have fallen in place. All the four singers are in their respective 99s.

So here is this special song from “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”(1966). The movie had eight songs in it. Details of the seven songs that were covered in the past is as follows:-

Song Title Post Date
 Dil hamne de diyaa  30 July 2009
 O meri mainaa tu maan le meraa kahnaa  5 Sept 2009
 Phool ban jaaungaa shart ye hai magar  9 Jan 2012
 Kisne pukaara mujhe main aa gayee  5 may 2012
 Din jawaani ke chaar yaar  1 apr 2015
Kehne ki nahin baat magar ab zor se kehna hai 24 Dec 2016
Gore haathhon par na zulm karo 24 Dec 2016

With this song, the song tally of the singers of this song stands as following:-

Singer Number of songs in the blog
 Lata  3400
 Asha Bhonsle  2500
 Kishore Kumar  1100
 Manna Dey  500

The movie “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”(1966) was produced and directed by C V Sridhar. The movie, a romantic comedy was a remake of his own Tamil comedy movie “Kadhalikka Neramillai”(1964). “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”(1966) had Shashi Kapoor, Rajshree (south), Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Mehmood, Om Prakash, Mumtaz, Chaman Puri etc in it. Mehmood and Om Prakash, playing son and father, were both nominated for the Filmfare award for the best comedian of the year and it was Mehmood who finally got the award.

“Pyaar Kiye Jaa”(1966) was a moderate hit in its time, unlike the original Tamil version. Nevertheless the maker went on to remake this movie in Telugu and Kannada as well. With time, “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”(1966) has made its mark as among the better comedy movies made in Hindi.

The song, which has four by now legendary singers lending their voices iin it is picturised on Shashi Kapoor (lip syncing in Manna Dey’s voice), Rajshree (south)-singing in Lata’s voice, Kishore Kumar (singing for himself) and Kalpana (singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice). I find it difficult to differentiate between the two ladies, that is how similar they look to my eyes which are untrained to identify HF actresses of yore. 🙂

The song is penned by Rajinder Krishan, the favourite lyricist of South Indian film makers remaking their movie into Hindi. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Is this song the only occasion when these four singers came together in a HF song ? I have no idea. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter. In any case, this song sees all these four legendary singers complete their individual centuries in the blog in one fell swoop, as they used to say in old American novels. 🙂

It may look that easy, but of course it was not so. Careful and patient planning for nearly seven months was involved. As the singers count inched towards their centuries, I realised that Asha Bhonsle could reach her century upsetting the plas if we were not careful. So I repeatedly reminded not to post any more Asha Bhonsle song till I was done with this song. 🙂

Finally this song gets covered in the blog. With this the movie gets YIPPEED. I do not think we have seen so much elaborate planning to cover just one song. The last such occasion was ofcourse the song post number 11111 in the blog viz the song Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen (Amar Akbar Anthony) .

“Raahi Badal Gaye”(1985) was produced by Ravi Malhotra and directed by Ravi Tandon. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Suresh Oberoi, Padmini Kolhapure, Prem Kalra, Rajendra Nath, Shakti Kapoor, Asha Lata etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

This “expression of love” song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Shabana Azmi, with the latter looking out of her comfort zone as she often did in romantic songs.

With this song, “Raahi Badal Gaye”(1985) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Ek baat dil mein aayi hai kahoon ya na kahoon (Raahi Badal Gaye)(1985) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-R D Burman

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 16
———————————————————————

Discussion of Railway related matters-1
——————————————————————–

There are songs that bring back memories. Then there are songs that trigger emotions. The song under discussion is one such song. This song causes so many different kinds of emotions that one hopes that these emotions would occur in slow motion so that one could understand them. Unfortunately such ultra slow motion technology has not yet been invented and so one needs to deal with them in the usual old fashioned way- viz. by taking a breather, collecting oneself and then trying to understand and analyse the things that run through one’s mind when one listens to this song.

So many different kinds of emotional stuff have been packaged in the three stanzas of this song that one is amazed at the ability of the lyricist to express such complex feelings in so few words.

This song was created in 1957, more that sixty years ago. The country was devoid of any development after systematic loot of her resources by the foreign rulers. People were moving to various places all over India in search of new abodes (for people uprooted as a result of partition) as well as employment (lots of new establishments were coming up, many in remote locations). Train was the only option to reach to far off places.

Going away from one’s native place often meant leaving one’s near and dear one’s behind. In other words, hopes and aspirations of a better future were tempered by the feelings of separation and missing the beloved. Those who are left behind by the train traveller would have no way of knowing the whereabout of the train traveller and vice versa.

hey kaisa ghazab ye dhaaye more raama
sajni se saajan chhudaaye liye jaaye
hoy dhuyen ki gaadi udaaye liye jaaye

bairan gaadi udti jaaye
man ko chain na aaye
saajan ke man ko chain na aaye
hai apne piyaa se door sajaniyaa
chham chham neer bahaaye
sajaniya chham chham neer bahaaye
arre ho o o o
nainan ka kajra
haathan ka gazraa
sab kuchh ye bairan churaaye liye jaaye
ho
sab kuchh ye bairan churaaye liye jaaye

A train contained hundreds of passengers. Each one of them was going somewhere and each one of them had some urgent business to attend to. Just imagine, hundreds of people, all strangers travelling together for different destinations in the same train. Staying together for a few hours and sometimes longer, people from different backgrounds would get introduced to each other and they would strike friendship. They would soon start discussing issues of common interest with each other.

Trains, by carrying people to far off places from their original places of residence, would not just relocate them geographically, it would also help in the development of the nation by bringing in skilled personnel to less developed places. These people, migrants to new places far off from their original places would need to undergo enormous changes in their earlier habits and attitudes in order to get used to their new environments. It would involve, among other things, learning an entirely new language, which, after initial struggle, would be achieved by people with aplomb. That is how erstwhile small towns in India have grown to become larger and more prosperous cities, by attracting skilled people from various other places.

Interaction with people coming from different backgrounds and geographical locations enabled cross pollination of ideas, viz food habits, dressing habits, attitudes etc. When I went to Madras in 1989, I was pleasantly surprised to find Lassi(an out and out Punjabi drink) being sold in Madras Railway station by a native shop owner and doing a roaring business among the local customers in that hot weather.

People travelled in trains not just for their careers. People travelled on it to meet their relatives located in far off areas. Children boarding a train with their parents to meet their grandparents would be a great occasion for the children as well as the grandparents. Also think of those who received telegrams (telegrams were dreaded, as they often meant some bad news like someone passing away) and as a result had to urgently rush back to their native places, without any time for prepatations including booking their tickets, which was a tough proposition in pre internet days.

Like most people in India, I too have been exposed to Indian Railways from childhood. I in fact was a born Railwayman because my father was a Railway employee. 🙂 So I saw Railway right from the time I was a child.

I stayed in Railway colony of Ranchi, not far from Ranchi Railway station. I studied in two schools and later one college in Ranchi. All of them were located on the other side of the Railway line. So it was mandatory to cross the railway line while commuting between home and school/ college. Even otherwise I would often go to the Railway station and observe how trains operated. Ranchi had broadguage lines going towards Howrah as well as Patna, and there were only two express trains daily- one for Howrah and one for Patna. Present day Ranchi inhabitants may be amused by this account but that is how it was during 1960s and 1970s.

Ranchi also had a narrow guage line upto Lohardaga. Passenger trains would ply between Ranchi-Lohardaga, but the main traffic in this narrow guage line was goods traffic. Bauxite (ore of Aluminium) would be brought by narrow guage goods train. This narrow gauge train would be taken to an elevated line. Under that line, there would be Broad guage line and empty broadguage wagons would be kept just under the narrow guage wagons. valves of NG wagons (called hopper wagons) would open and their Bauxite ore content would fall down from their bottom discharge opening into the open broad guage wagons. It all looked very elegant. I as a child would stop there and watch how the bauxite ore got transferred from NG wagons into BG wagons within minutes. After that, the BG goods wagons would be taken to the Hindalco Aluminium factories for further processing.

Those were the days of steam locomotives. Ranchi Railway station had a steam loco shed. Steam locomotive pistons used to have piston rings outside them. These piston rings were replaced in the steam shed during their repair and old piston rings were discarded. These discarded piston rings, when welded at the gap made excellent hoop that kids so loved to drive.

Kids whose fathers were in loco department (viz locomotive drivers) would get their fathers to get such hoops for them. I was not so privileged as my father was in Engineering department, so I only had hoops made of rods bent into a circle. I would request my privileged friends to let me drive their piston ring hoop. After driving my hoop, driving that piston ring hoop seemed like one was driving a Ferrari or Rolls Royce. 🙂

Later, when I myself joined Railways, I found myself undergoing training, among other things, in steam locomotives at Jamalpur. What enormous sized parts a steam locomotive contained ! People who maintained steam locomotives and people who drove them needed to be extremely strong and rough and tough. It was not for people who were weak in body and mind.

One needed to pass in practicals as well as Interview. Interviews were conducted by the head of the Workshop (now called Chief Workshop Manager, then called Additional Chief Mechanical Engineer). A book “steam loco guide” by H C Ratta was a much sought after book for passing the interview. It appears that only one edition of this book was published in 1958 despite its enormous popularity. Only a few copies of the book were available and those who had them would guard their copies with their lives and would allow them to be shared to others only on hourly basis. 🙂

Very few people would be able to give satisfactory replies in the interview. Thankfully, the additional Chief Mechanical Engineer, who himself might have been in the shoes of the interviewees some two to three decades ago would take a sympathetic view towards them. 🙂

When I joined Railway service after managing to scrape through various examinations and interviews etc, I was hoping that I would not have to deal with steam locomotives much. I was initially posted in a MG Diesel locomotive shed so I felt safe. But my next posting was in a MG steam loco shed in a place called Purna in Maharashtra and that too as the incharge. 🙂 I somehow managed, all the while hoping that the steam locomotives would soon get phased out and thankfully that is what happened.

Sometime later, I was posted in Hubli, and guess what ! That place too had a MG steam loco shed ! Thankfully, the entire division, which was MG when I joined, became BG within four months of my joining there and so that steam loco shed got phased out too.

A few years later, I was transferred to N F Railways and posted at Lumding. A few months later,a new General Manager joined who was a steam locomotive romantic (even though ignorant about technical matters of steam locomotives), ordered that one of the several condemned MG steam locomotives lying at Badarpur (near Bangladesh Border) must be revived. As incharge of mechanical engineering activities, this task was entrusted on me. Despite lacking infrastructure for steam locomotives, one steam locomotive was revived and it was used to haul a few coaches in MG section between Lower Haflong and Maibong in may 2001, with BBC TV crew on board. BBC shot the steam train running and later telecast it on their world service TV. Taking inspiration from this, other zones too then revived a few steam locomotives lying in their territories and ran them, mainly for the benefit of camera opportunity.

Thankfully, that was my last tryst with Steam locomotives. Subsequently I had to deal only with Diesel locomotives. Diesel locomotives are maintained in Diesel loco sheds. The incharge of Diesel loco shed is called Senior Divisional Mechanical Engineer (Diesel), or Sr DME (D) in short. I have the unique distinction of being Sr DME (D) in diesel sheds of all the three guages, viz Broad guage, Meter Guage and Narrow Guage. My guess is that I am the only such officer in the entire 165 year old history of Indian Railways. 🙂 The fact that I have been transferred a lot all over India helped me achieve this feat. 🙂

I have worked in all wings of mechanical department that a zonal Railway can have. I have worked in Steam and Diesel (as mentioned above), power (which meant being incharge of Diesel locomotive drivers), Zonal HQ and also Railway Workshop.

I had joined Jabalpur one week before it became the headquarters of newly formed West Central Railway on 1 april 2003. So I was one of the founders of WCRly. It was while I was at Jabalpur that this blog was started on 19 july 2008.

As for train travels, I have obviously travelled a lot on Indian Railways. There are a few travels that stand out in memory. One was a train travel from Nagpur to Secunderabad in june 1998. I, my wife and our three months old daughter were travelling. We had got just one berth in AC2 and that too upper berth. My wife and daughter occupied the upper berth. It was extremely cold at the upper berth and the daughter, who was travelling by train for the first time was naturally quite uncomfortable and she cried a lot. My wife got mad at me for my inability to arrange for a lower berth. I looked around and found that a lower berth would get vacant after several hours, and the person (a collegue of mine) who was allotted that berth on vacation agreed to exchange that lower berth with our upper berth when he got that berth. Meanwhile my wife had managed to calm the daughter and had managed to make her fall asleep. Today, 20 years later, whenever I think of that train journey, I still shudder how our three months daughter , on her first train journey had had a harrowing time. And I still feel extremely grateful to my colleage, called Piyush Mathur (now posted in Jabalpur) who agreed to offer his side lower berth in exchange of inside upper berth.

Then there was another train travel between Jamalpur to Jabalpur that I undertook in january 2010. I had got a lower berth through EQ (emergency quota). As soon as I occupied by berth, all the passengers with upper berths began eyeing my lower berth and tried to exchange their upper berth with my lower berth. A mother and her grown up daughter had got the upper berth, the berth above me. The man on the opposite lower berth had his alibi ready. He had every physical ailments known to mankind so no one dare ask him to exchange his lower berth.

The two ladies tried all the tricks in the book and outside the book and I finally relented and exchanged my lower berth with their upper berth. As soon as I occupied the upper berth, the two ladies as well as the gentleman on the opposite lower berth made me a persona non grata and began to treat me as an unwanted intruder. “keep your purse in my custody, I will take care of them”, the gentleman would tell the ladies, indicating that the fellow on the upper berth was not to be trusted. Needless to say that I was not allowed to sit in the lower berth which was actually mine. I kept fuming throughout the journey. By the time the train arrived in WCR and the TTE of WCR joined the train, I told him my story and he fully empathised with me. “In future, never exchange your liower berth with anyone, whether it is a lady or a child or a saint”- he advised. “Yes, I will never do that again.” -I vowed. From that time onwards, I never exchange my lower berth with any passenger. and in case they look like people who do not deserve to be helped then I become uncharacteristically aggressive as well and tell them that I have suffered in the past for my generosity which was regarded as my foolishness and I will not allow myself to be taken for a ride again. The only exception to this rule is of course when I find a lady with a young child needing a lower berth, which was the case with me 20 years ago.

When I look back to my association with Railways, I have lots and lots of tales to tell. Some of our regulars are quite interested in matters related to Railways and I, during my interactions with them had said that I would discuss some railway related matters from an insider’s point of view in the blog. This article could be treated as the first article in that series. 🙂

More than the first article in my series of Railway related discussion, this article is about ten years of this blog. I have mentioned it many a times that the journey of this blog can be likened to a train journey and so a train related song is quite a suitable song for an occasion like this.

I had discovered this song may years ago and I was floored by this song. I had decided to use this song on some very special occasion. Lots of special occasions have arrived in the blog but somehow I felt the need to still hang on to this song. I think that this song is just the perfect song for the occasion.

So here is this song from “Naya Zamaana”(1957). This movie was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Link Films, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Veena, Kammo, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Gope, Shukla, Poonam Kapoor, Shakuntala, Brahmdatt, Daizy Irani, Baby Naaz, Al Nasir etc in it. Pradeep Kumar and Al Nasir were guest artists in this movie.

The movie had ten songs in it. One song was covered in the blog in the past.

This song, the second from the movie, is sung by Rafi and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kanu Ghosh.

Video of the first song covered from the movie was available. But only the audio of this rail song seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The blog has completed ten years of its existence. It appears as if this blog was started just a few months ago. I can barely believe that ten years have passed. But indeed that is the case. My daughter was just ten years old and in school at that time. Now she is an young adult and she is studying in a medical college. The youngest contributor of this blog eight years ago is now in show business. 🙂 We have people from various walks in like- Banking, Rocket science, film industry, government sector, private sector etc etc as our regular contributors and visitors. Just like people from all walks of lives used Railways to travel and enrich the nation, people of various walks have used the online media available to us to enrich the blog. When one looks at the variety that has been served in the form of guest articles in the run up to this event, one can only be amazed at the power of online collaboration. This blog is an example of what can be achieved when about a score of like minded individuals decide to collaborate on a topic of their choice. We never collaborated with the aim that we had to last for a certain period of time say ten years. We collaborated because we enjoyed what we were doing. When one enjoys doing something and works with a missionary zeal, one can keep doing it for long periods without feeling fatigued or disillusioned. The musical bandwagon had hardly lost any steam. In fact, I feel that we can pick up speed again. We still have lots and lots more of great music still left to be covered. So let us take a fresh guard again and let us star afresh once more. Here is hoping that this bandwagon will keep rolling on and on for the foreseeable future.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Without the support of encouragement, this labour of love could not have seen this day. The fact that we have seen this day shows how much goodwill the blog has received from music lovers. I request more on the same. Let us fasten our seat belts and move on. We still have a long way to go.

Blog Day : 3653 Post No. : 14509

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 15
———————————————————————

It has been a while since my last post here – and I have no excuses for this. I will not cite “been busy” as an excuse, because, if I’m honest, I could certainly have found time for a post. If anything, the only reason for not posting is my sheer laziness. And laziness is never, and should never be, an acceptable excuse. So, no excuses. Mea culpa.

One thing though. While I might not be posting frequently, this blog is never far from my heart. It might not be apparent from my recent (non-existent) interactions but this is fact. Whether I post here or not, this blog is very special to me. After all, I have been involved with it from day one. So I request everyone to please excuse my prolonged absence. (Some might consider it not such a bad thing. 🙂 )

Anyway, let me get to the point now. I am not the story here – something else is. Something much bigger than me and my mundane blabbering. Yes, this post is part of a series that marks a very special occasion for this blog. An occasion that speaks to an achievement so momentous, so mind-boggling that it calls for a “lifetime achievement award” for the creator of the blog.

This blog, our beloved blog, completes TEN years today – the first post here appeared on 19th July 2008.

I know I will never be able to do justice to the emotions I am experiencing right now. Words just cannot fully express these feelings. But I’ll try to share some of my thoughts on this occasion. They will be rambling, as usual – but I hope that’s ok.

TEN years. In the history of civilizations, TEN years is nothing. Even in inter-stellar references, depending on context, TEN years is nothing.

But in the world of blogging, TEN years of continuous blogging is HUGE. Mind-blowingly awe-inspiringly HUGE. Or, to use a very common American term, AWESOME. The operative word here is “continuous”. Most blogs out here (and there are countless numbers) are started with great enthusiasm. It doesn’t matter what the blog is about – but, much like exercise, the enthusiasm sees a dramatic drop over time. This could be days, weeks, or, for the more dogged, months. The blog marathoners might just push it into a few years, but there is usually a visible decline in tempo – much like a vehicle that has run its mileage, but is being started everyday just so it doesn’t come to a complete halt. Thus you see a post surface on the blog after months – as if to signal the blog (and the writer) is still alive.

I am not exaggerating. Yours truly also has a potpourri-like blog  – started many years ago with considerable enthusiasm. The live update on the situation is that I can’t even remember when I last posted anything on the blog. Must be a few months at least, if not more. And I am in pretty good company. Thousands of blogs suffer this fate.

That is where this Atul-song-a-day blog, so beloved to us, stands out. Separate from all the other blogs out there. It is one thing to clock ten years. There must be plenty of blogs created before 19th July 2008 and still active. But I wonder how many of those have posts almost EVERY SINGLE DAY day since then. And if they do, I am almost sure they must be commercial blogs, run for profit. By probably an army of people dedicated to the job. In comparison, here it is very different.

We have Atul – who started this blog purely as a labour of love. To this day, even ten years later, it remains that. Yes, he’s helped by Sudhir ji now (and that’s a huge help!) but it’s still one hell of an ask to keep posting every single day. But they do it – Atul and Sudhir ji. The rest of us, Atulites, enjoy the blog, discuss songs, write posts at times (cough, cough!) – but it is basically run by Atul and Sudhir ji.

The most amazing thing about this is that they are both very busy people otherwise – so they have plenty to do, even apart from taking care of this blog. And like I’ve said many times before, every post involves a certain degree of effort. There’s no compromise on quality, so it’s not just a hurried hashed job for the sake of posting something. No compromise on accuracy, whether in the lyrics or in the post itself. If it means needing to listen to a song umpteen times (and Atul has done that), so be it! And apart from the post, there are the other features – the analysis, statistics. All of this demands time too. And besides what we see, they are always working on something in the background.

And oh, I forgot to mention, there’s always the risk of infrastructure failing – whether a power failure, or internet connectivity issue. Over these ten years Atul has been posted in multiple towns – each with its infrastructure challenges. When I consider all this, I can only say that it takes a very special level of love and dedication to HFM to be able to achieve so much, with all constraints and demands on their time.

I would also like to compliment and congratulate not just Atul and Sudhir ji, but everyone who has been part of this wonderful journey, in any capacity. There have been many – some stalwarts too (I shall not take names, we all know who they are 🙂 ) – who have contributed to this blog immensely.

Thanks to this blog, we have all come together, from all over the world, from diverse backgrounds – but with music as our common love and bonding factor. Without this blog, that would not have happened.

Of course, on such an occasion, it is normal to also reflect on the journey. My mind goes back to that first song , posted on 19th July 2008. “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” – Rafi Saab’s divine voice, meaningful lyrics by Kaifi Azmi, composition by Roshan. This song started the journey.

My comment appears on 21st July – so two days later. That is because I got to know about the blog only then. Atul and I were part of this cricket forum – both of us share this interest too, apart from music. Although the forum was primarily meant for cricket discussion, we would discuss a lot of other stuff too – mostly fun stuff. Given our interest, we naturally discussed songs too.

Atul and I (and a few others) would post songs on the forum every now and then. Atul had a thread ‘train songs’, I had a thread ‘songs that inspire me’ and so on.

Around this time Atul started a blog to discuss some of his experiences – I remember him blogging about Binaca Geet Mala, and the famous Jaimala programme of Vividh Bharati. Then one fine day, Atul announced on the cricket forum that he had started a new blog for songs. This announcement was on 21st July 2008 – I promptly visited the blog. Read the post, listened to the song – and left a comment. Shalini, another friend on the forum, also was one of the earliest visitors and commenters on the blog.

At that time, the intention was only one song a day. Which explains the blog name.

But of course, with one song a day, you would not get very far even in ten years. And our thirst wouldn’t get quenched. 🙂

In those early days, I used to give Atul a lot of farmaishes. He was obviously posting songs of his liking – I liked them too, but I had so many other songs that I wanted to see on the blog. So I used to send him requests – lists of 10 songs at a time. Not necessarily very famous songs – I remember even giving a farmaish for “Paape Na Sharma” (film ‘Sagaai’, 1966) – a song I distinctly remember from my childhood.

Around that time, Lalitha also joined in. She was a regular commenter – and would give her farmaishes too. For a while, I felt less guilty – I wasn’t the only one making demands on Atul. Poor Atul! He had started with the intention of posting one song of his choice every day. And here he was, trying to cater to long lists of farmaishes – many probably not even songs of his choice. Yet, he didn’t complain (“Aah Bhi Nikle To Ye Pyaar Ki Rusvaai Hai” ?). He tried gamely to post them all – and possibly realized that at one song a day, it wasn’t going to be feasible.

After a while (I don’t know when – Atul would know the exact dates), he switched to multiple songs a day. That was a big boost for thirsty people like me. 🙂  He kept making improvements to the blog. One feature after another. Statistics. Anniversary page. At that time it was totally a one-man show. He somehow managed to keep posting everyday. The write-up was entirely his at the time.

Then, one day, he asked me if I would do a write-up. I was a bit nervous – but said ok. That was the start for me – this is my 201st post. In these 200 posts, I’ve had the opportunity to pay tribute to several artistes on their birth/death anniversaries or blog landmark occasions – all thanks to Atul.

The blog itself now covers 14500+ songs – I would say it is the richest, most composite, repository of HFM on the internet, especially if you consider that it includes many obscure songs, and is a package of lyrics, video/audio AND a write-up for every single song posted. In any case, we are not in competition with anyone – like I’ve said before, this is a labour of love. We keep building the repository – and the process itself is an enjoyable one. For me personally, this blog has enriched my knowledge of HFM SO much I cannot begin to explain in words. I have discovered SO many gems only through this blog.

And oh, the knowledge of Atulites here! I feel SO humbled. I know nothing, and am happy to learn more from our inhouse encyclopaedia, Arunji. Or Sadanandji, whose knowledge is also immense. And others too. The important thing I realize is that I will not get this information anywhere else on the internet – it is in their heads, often coming from a book or an interview or article ages ago. The internet is not as complete (or even as accurate) a source as many think. We need to keep adding new (accurate) content to it.

And this blog is doing a great job in this respect. Even the comments section are a treasure house of trivia and rare information. For example, when Arunji discusses a song from a film, he doesn’t talk only about the film. He talks about the circumstances in which the film was made, the times, the background of the artistes, director, producer and so on. That gives a very different, and much-enriched, perspective of the film. And this, I feel, is something very special on this blog. It is not merely a song video/audio/lyrics effort. There’s a story behind it that brings the song and film seemingly to life.

And I just love those stories. 🙂

Apart from the blog itself, there is the ecosystem that has got created around it. All the people who came together because of the blog but are now good friends, part of whatsapp group and so on. Some of us have met each other too. Music bonds anyway – and this blog has taken the bonding to a different level. And being part of this journey from day one has been an absolute privilege for me. I have enjoyed it thoroughly and cherish every moment.

Talking of the journey brings me to the song for this post. This is from Jawaab (1970). The lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. When I told him I was planning to do a write-up on this song, he immediately offered to provide me with the lyrics – in English and Devanagari. He is so passionate about this blog, and so helpful – thank you SO much, Avinash ji.

I have picked this song for two main reasons. First, I wanted a fun song to reflect a fun occasion. Secondly, and probably more importantly, some of the lyrics completely resonate with me.

zindagi wo kya
na pyaar jis mein ho
saath agar ho saathi dil ka
mazaa safar mein hai

How absolutely true! What is life without love in it? And indeed, the journey of life is made enjoyable, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey. Otherwise it would be a lonely journey.

The same is totally true of this blog. The journey, now of ten years, has been made thoroughly enjoyable, certainly for me, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey.

And

baant na lein kyon aapas mein
jo dard jigar mein hai

Also true. We share good and bad times, as we go through this journey. So I felt this song suits this occasion very well.

As for the picturisation, I quite like the zany dancing of, then Jumping Jack, Jeetendra. Even by his crazy standards, some of the moves here are of a different level. Leena Chandavarkar too, probably trying not to be outdone, comes up with some moves of her own. All in all, a totally fun song which I am sure most people will enjoy.

Thanks for reading this post – and once again, congratulations to everyone who has been a part of this journey.

mazaa safar mein hai

Yes, indeed. 🙂

ज़िंदगी वो क्या
न प्यार जिसमें हो

मज़ा सफ़र में हैं

ज़िंदगी वो क्या

मज़ा सफ़र में हैं
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले तुम हो

जहां भी देखें आँख कि मस्ती

मज़ा सफ़र में हैं

सहमी सहमी क्यूँ है धड़कन दिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
पड़ न गयी हो आँख किसी कातिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
जब चल जाता है जादू
फिर दिल पर कैसा काबू
हो हो हो हो ओ ओ ओ
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले हम है
होठों पर भी ले आओ
जो बात नज़र में है

ज़िंदगी वो क्या

साथ अगर हो साथी दिल का
मज़ा सफ़र में हैं
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है

It is just past midnight (IST) in India. Time to wish, a very happy and progressive 10th Anniversary to our Blog. What a wonderful thought this post carries – an everlasting love for music.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————

“Love is so short, forgetting is so long” – ah, this quote by Pablo Neruda! How true it is!! So simple yet so profound. . .  Don’t we all agree? Love, that feeling which each and every living being experiences for sure in its lifetime. Each one of us would have definitely celebrated it many times in our lives.

And this feeling is celebrated in this song too. Naqsh Lyallpuri, the lyricist puts it down so very simply. The pain of love is sweet and lovable. Its beautiful and it is the sustenance of two hearts that are in love. Love is serene and at the same time exciting. Lovers meet every day but that is inadequate, the longing to meet again remains. Hunger for the loved feeling, however much it is satisfied by these meetings, it remains. It is a feeling, a feeling forever. This is how the lyricist expresses the feeling in this song. His choice of words is simple, the lines are short but very effective in conveying the sentiment. Khayyaam, one of my favourite music composers has composed a distinctive kind of tune. The singing of Asha and Kishore is adorable.

Coming back to Pablo Neruda (12 Jul, 1904 – 23 Sep, 1973), the poet I alluded to in the beginning. He is a very well-known poet from Chile, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. He was also a diplomat and politician. This is a rare combination I feel, a poet and a politician!! Very unique. He is known for love poems. I found these lines by him fascinating.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

Anybody that agrees with the quote? Yes, we do. At least, the majority of us. For few it is “Love is for lifetime etc.”. For people who don’t fall into either category, they should do this – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Lee“.

Ah, this is the first song posted by our indefatigable Atul ji. From then to now, it is has been a decade. I am yet to find a person who is as consistent as Atul ji. His very able co-travellers, Sudhir ji and Arun ji are no less consistent. All these three are tireless wayfarers of the musical journey that is our blog. Arun ji is in fact the Bhishm Pitamah of Hindi Films. How can I forget the others? I cannot, they all contribute regularly. Each of them is unique in their own ways.  Unlike me who makes a guest appearance now and then!! Well, I was prodded by Sudhir ji into writing this. I feel grateful to him that he has not forgotten a nacheez like me. I am thankful to Raja ji for allowing to write on a song which he intended to write on. And to Avinash ji for providing the lyrics and all meta-data associated with song. And to Pradeep for being an inspiration. There I go accusing him again! Thank you all 😊

I am sure that the journey will continue until the end of our days on this beautiful Earth. Let us contradict Neruda now. Love for music is so long and cannot be forgotten. Neruda, are you listening? I am being a little cheeky 😉

Here is wishing the blog a long and musically fulfilled life!!

Blog Day : 3652 Post No. : 14505

Today is the death anniversary of one of India’s biggest superstars, Rajesh Khanna, affectionately referred to as Kaka. He passed away on the 18th of July 2012. I remember being shocked to hear of his death – and even wrote an emotional post on my blog on the occasion. Although I did know that he had been suffering from cancer, the news hit me hard. Today, it is already 6 years since his death. How time flies!

Maybe it’s a reflection of the person he was, but it seems to me that any conversation about Kaka invariably goes beyond his films, and delves into his personal life and relationships. His, admittedly none too positive, image seems to take over – at the cost of discussion about his films. This is unfortunate – but, to some extent, Kaka probably brought this on himself.

We all know he let success go to his head – and paid a heavy price for it. Like I’ve said before, maybe that was one of his roles here on this earth. To NOT be a role model, to be someone that can be held up as an example by parents to children of how NOT to let success get to your head. Anyway, later in life, Kaka did admit to the mistakes he’d made – and, on this Remembrance Day, I think I’d like to not talk about his mistakes. I’ve discussed them at length in previous posts – I don’t want to repeat myself.

Today, as I remember him, all I want to do is to thank him for the performances he gave me when I was just a young boy, growing up in the late 60s / early 70s. I’m going to pause just a bit here to remember those performances.

There were many – his filmography of that period and his success rate would put any other actor in the shade. Not even the big 3 (Dilip, Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand) who came before him could deliver that many hits in that short a time frame. Or the biggie who followed right after. But personally I couldn’t care less about the box-office success of those films. I was just a young boy – what did I know about the box-office? All I knew was, there was this “hero” on screen who, through his smile, or tilt of the head, or “guru” kurta, or dialogue delivery had me mesmerized in film after film, singing one blissful song after another (at that time I didn’t know about playback).

I didn’t always understand the storyline, or even all the dialogues, but everytime he would be romancing  the heroine, whether it was Sharmila or Mumtaz or Tanuja or Hema or another, it felt like all was just perfect with the world. It wasn’t as if other heroes didn’t have romantic scenes with the heroines, but somehow it seemed different in Kaka films. Later, when I thought about this, I felt it was possibly because romance was usually intrinsic to Kaka films. It formed part of the main plot itself. Whereas for others, it was an important element no doubt, but the storyline often had a crime-related plot – like smuggling.  Note that wherever romance IS the plot, the film seems very Kaka-like. For example, ‘Aa Gale Lag Ja’ (1973) could very well have been a Kaka film, though it had Shashi Kapoor in the main lead.

Of course, it was not always a happy ending. Kaka would often die in the film, breaking my heart.  This only made the film a bigger hit, so storylines were devised accordingly.

I thoroughly enjoyed those films – have fond memories of ‘Aradhana’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’, ‘Kati Patang’, ‘Dushman’, ‘Apna Desh’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’, and so many others. Whether it was “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani”, “Yahaan Wahaan Saare”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, “Waada Tera Waada”, “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona”, “Dilbar Jaani”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” or any of his numerous hits of the time, I knew them all by heart – all stanzas. We’d often sing these songs amongst friends.

At that time I had no idea about Kaka beyond his screen presence. Ignorance was truly bliss.

Then things began changing.

Suddenly he didn’t seem to have the same magic anymore. I tend to associate this with his “long hair” phase but, to be fair to him, that was just the fashion of the time. Hamming seemed to have set in – even the films seemed to lack that romantic feel about them. The last couple of movies I remember of that era that I saw, and could accept, were ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974) and ‘Prem Kahaani’ (1975).

Mehbooba (1976) was probably the first big shock for me. It was highly hyped at the time – what with the two biggest names, Kaka and Hema, as the lead actors. Not to mention RD Burman’s music. I remember the film being a big flop. Later I read that the decline started even earlier but for me, at that age, Mehbooba was the marker.

That was a terrible period for him. Flop after flop. I clearly remember ‘Bundalbaaz’, ‘Chalta Purza’, ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, even BR Chopra’s ‘Karm’ (another much-awaited film) – all failed. But there were more.

Oh, one thing. I said I didn’t know about box-office but there was one indicator for me. I used to travel by school bus to school, 30 km away. En-route there was a film theatre. From the bus, we could see which film was running. That gave us a pretty good idea of hit or flop. I remember ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ running for many weeks, whereas ‘Bundalbaaz’ and ‘Chalta Purza’ just came and went.

After watching ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, I really couldn’t take it anymore. What had happened to my “Ye Shaam Mastaani” Rajesh Khanna? How had he morphed into this “I am in love, you are in love, he is in love, she is in love” Rajesh Khanna? I stopped seeing his movies. I couldn’t bear to.

Later, in the mid-80s, I did watch a few – but only because they were on Doordarshan. ‘Thodisi Bewafai’ (1980), ‘Avtaar’ (1983) and ‘Aakhir Kyon’ (1985). I quite liked them. But only these.

For the next 25 years, I stayed away from Kaka films that I had not watched. Sure, I watched the old ones to relive their magic. But none of his post-1977 films. Only a few years ago, I mustered the courage to watch this category. I think it had to do with his death. Maybe I felt I was doing him grave injustice by avoiding these films. After all, he must have worked just as hard in them, as in his early films. So why not at least give them a shot? For Kaka’s sake.

I started with the more successful ones – at least those with popular songs. Like ‘Agar Tum Na Hote’ (1983), ‘Kudrat’ (1981), ‘Rajput’ (1982). I kept my expectations very low. I quite liked all these films. And I was quite impressed by Kaka too. I don’t recall seeing much of the hamming  that I had dreaded. Sure they were very different from his early 1970s films – but that’s to be expected.

Recently I got into the mood again – and did a Kaka binge. I watched ‘Amrit’ (1986), ‘Dhanwaan’ (1981), ‘Dard’ (1981), ‘Aanchal’ (1980), ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979) and ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), all within the last month. As usual, keeping expectations low. I liked some more than the others, of course. But what I realized is each of their story lines is very different from the rest. That also made me realize that Kaka’s movies often had that – different story lines. This, at a time in the late 70s or in the 80s, when usually you had formulaic dhishum-dhishum films, either as multi-starrers, or hero taking revenge on the villain.

I now plan to watch more Kaka films of the period. Even if they’re not good, that’s ok. I keep my expectations low – and I’m watching them for Kaka. His looks aren’t what they were in the early 1970s – but that only seems to make him all the more real for me. And, worst case, the film will probably have a reasonable story line.

Moving on to today’s song.

Now having watched all these Kaka films recently, and most of them not being much represented on the blog, I was somewhat spoilt for choice today. I could have picked at least half a dozen Kaka songs from these films alone – and I do plan to write up more from these films. But for today, I’ve chosen “Paise Ka Kaajal” from ‘Aanchal’ (1980).

Firstly, this song comes in the category of “ye gaana IS film mein hai?” for me. I’d heard it all those years ago but didn’t know which film it was from. Secondly, ‘Aanchal’ is not represented yet on the blog, so it makes its debut today. Thirdly, it is a song & dance – and I quite like song & dance. 🙂 What I particularly liked about this one, apart from the song itself, is Kaka’s style. Not that he was a great dancer, but his style here reminded me of the Kaka of the early 1970s, when he’d dance similarly opposite heroines of the time. 🙂

The film stars Kaka, Rekha, Raakhee, Amol Palekar and Prem Chopra. It’s a village-based story, where Kaka and Amol Palekar are brothers, with Raakhee married to Amol Palekar. Since Kaka is her husband’s younger brother, Raakhee treats him with great affection. Kaka too has highest regard for his bhabhi. Prem Chopra, who has a score to settle with Amol Palekar, plays mischief, creating misunderstanding in his mind about the relationship between Raakhee and Kaka. Also, doing the same to Rekha, who is in love with Kaka.

To be honest, the film picks up only in the second half – the first half is rather slow. But maybe it is a build-up to show the relationships between the characters. I was rather keen for the film to get on with the plot. 🙂

In any case, do listen to this fairly catchy tune composed by RD Burman.  Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. As usual, the lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. He is always very helpful in this respect, sending me lyrics for any post I plan to write.

Not only this, he is a huge Kaka fan – a much bigger fan than I am. Avinash ji did tell me that he might not be able to write a post for Kaka on this occasion. So this is our joint tribute to Kaka, as we remember him fondly today.

Kaka, hope you are at peace, wherever you are. And thanks for all the memories.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 11
———————————————————————

All right, the occasion demands that I write a post.  It is the tenth anniversary of the blog, ek post to banti hai. 🙂

So like all things transient, whether one is or isn’t the world moves on.  Time and tide wait for none.  I said this to my brother a few days ago.

Is it all make believe ?

What is real here ?

What exactly is happening ?

What are we doing here ?

What is the purpose of all this maya jaal ?

Anyways let me delude all and sundry that any of this matters.

Checking the date of my last post in the blog, I realise it is almost 2 years ago.  I really didn’t mean to deprive the blog of my ramblings for so long, whether it makes sense or not.

As always there is no dearth of bollywood songs.  My search among celebratory songs kept coming back to this one from ‘Hollywood/Bollywood’ (2002).  This movie is Canadian production directed by Deepa Mehta.   This is a light hearted love story, containing just the right dose of drama, songs at regular frequency, with almost black humour, of Dina Pathak mouthing dialogues such as “I am not here to bury Ceaser, but to praise him”. How did they manage not to draw the curtains after this one ? Not an easy task, this editors job. This, in the last 10 minutes of the movie.  No need to say there never was a chance for  anymore goals in the game.

So here is the song, a firm favourite of the last decade. Both the lyricists and music director are new names for the blog. The singing by Sonu Nigam and Alisha Chinoy is very peppy and infectious with a spontaneity which makes this song special.  This also reaffirms my belief that Sonu Nigam is the true disciple and carries the torch for Rafi  Sahab’s singing legacy.

Congatulations on the 10th anniversary of the blog to all involved.  Thanks to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, it feels good to write about things and nothings.

sitaron se aage jahaan aur bhi hain
abhi ishq ke imtihan aur bhi hain
 
tihi zindagi se nahin yeh fazaayein
yahaan sainkadon kaaravaan aur bhi hain
 
qanaa’at na kar aalam-e-rang-o-bu par
chaman aur bhi, aashiyaan aur bhi hain  
 
agar kho gaya ek nasheman to kya gham
muqaamaat-e-aah-o-fughaan aur bhi hain
 
tu shaaheen hai, parvaaz hai kaam tera
tere saamne aasmaan aur bhi hain
 
isi roz-o-shab mein ulajh kar nah rah jaa
ke tere zamaan-o-makaan aur bhi hain
 
gaye din ke tanhaa thaa main anjuman mein
yahaan ab mere raaz-daan aur bhi hain

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 10
———————————————————————

I have just finished noting down lyrics of the song I have chosen – it has taken me one hour at least. I have listened to the song close to 4-5 times. I had to listen to some parts again and again trying to figure out what the singer was saying, revise my lyrics and note down which portions were sung by the male or female singer and which was sung by them both. I do this only once in a while, not being the owner of the blog but an occasional participant. It made me appreciate more and more the amount of dedication the usual writers put in. To combine all this with a write up to explain the song, add anecdotes related to the song and sometimes, stories that led to the song is all hard work, believe me. In this age and time of quick fixes, short cuts, bullet points and shortened attention spans it is difficult to even understand this kind of dedication.

Hats off to the owners of the blog (Atul ji and Sudhir ji) and a team of dedicated Atulties who fuel this blog with their enthusiasm. There are many Atulites who are intensely interested in the goings on related to the blog. I find they are all lovely people who share a deep love of music. Their camaraderie is commendable, not only do they discuss the events on the blog, but also try their best to meet up often. I have attended one such meeting and have been awed by the depth of knowledge they have of music and the various ways in which they share their knowledge.

I have chosen a song from a relatively new movie, ‘Yahan’ from 2005. It is the directorial debut of Shoojit Sircar who garnered fame for the movie that came after this, ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012) and ‘Piku’ (2015). This movie, as far as I remember, did not make any waves. I happened to see the movie in a cinema hall and was struck by it. Minissha Lamba impressed me and Jimmy Shergill is always a pleasure to watch. The story is about a Kashmiri girl, Ada, who falls in love with an army captain, Aman (Jimmy Shergill). They face many difficulties after they fall in love. Ada risks being ostracized, even killed, for loving an army officer, and that too, not of the same religion. Similarly, Aman is also labelled as a traitor for dealing with Ada’s brother who is a terrorist. The denouement is over simplistic. It is hard to imagine something as complex as Kashmir problem being solved (even in part) by a few acts of an army captain. The charm of the movie lay in the sweet character of the two protagonists. Aman is an upright man who takes full responsibility for the woman he loves. Ada hopes to find peace and love in Aman after dealing with the constant strife in her life.

Listening closely to this song while noting the lyrics, I was struck by the beautiful words penned by Gulzar, clothed most wonderfully by the lovely music composed by Shantanu Moitra. Shreya Ghoshal sings it beautifully, there are times when her voice drops to a whisper and rises again. There are times when the music fades and lets the singer’s voice do its magic. When Shreya sings “Jhelum Mein Beh Lenge”, it feesl like I am floating in Jhelum. The song drips with love and longing. It is hard for a song to be so beautiful unless all three key elements of it, music, lyrics and singing is at its best. In this song you can hear them at their best.

Enjoy the lovely song and send up thanks to our great Atulji for allowing us a platform to enjoy and share music like this and congratulations to all the creators of the blog and the readers.

जाऊँ तो मेरा
नाम सबा लिखना
बर्फ पड़े तो
बर्फ पे मेरा
नाम दुआ लिखना

ज़रा ज़रा आग वाग पास रहती है
ज़रा ज़रा कांगड़े की आंच रहती है
कभी कभी आस पास चाँद रहता है
शम्में बुझाने॰ ॰ ॰
कभी कभी आस पास शाम रहती है
आती हैं रातें॰ ॰ ॰
रातें बुझाने
तुम आ गए हो

जब तुम हँसते हो॰॰ओ
दिन हो जाता है
तुम गले लगा तो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
दिन सो जाता है

डोली उठाए
आएगा दिन तो
पास बैठा लेना
कल जो मिले तो
माथे पे मेरे
सूरज उगा देना
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास धूप रहेगी
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास रंग रहेंगे
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास धूप रहेगी
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास रंग रहेंगे

पूछे जो कोई
मेरी निशानी
रंग हीन्ना लिखना
गोरे बदन पे
उंगली से मेरा
नाम अदा लिखना
आ॰॰आ॰॰आ
कभी कभी आस पास चाँद रहता है
कभी कभी आस पास शाम रहती है
कभी कभी आस पास चाँद रहता है
कभी कभी आस पास शाम रहती है

रख साइयाँ दी जीवे
जीवे
जीवे
रब रखवाला जीवे
रख साइयाँ दी जीवे
जीवे
जीवे
रब रखवाला जीवे

कभी कभी आस पास चाँद रहता है
नन्ना नन्ना ना ना ना नन्ना रहती है
॰ ॰ ॰ शाम रहती है
लल्ल लल्ल लाल लाल लाल ला ला ला
लल्ल लल्ल आस पास शाम रहती है

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 9
———————————————————————

My last post on our blog has been sometime back. I have been meaning to write about this song which has a couple of rare occurrences in the Hindi Film and Music world and was waiting for an opportune moment.

Recently, I have been fighting my own battles on my health front, having been hospitalised for surgical and advanced interventional pain management procedures, more than a couple of times in the last one year. I have diabetes, which is under control, however it has caused neuropathy in both my feet causing severe pain with tingling and burning sensations. I would like to take this opportunity to create awareness amongst all the readers of this blog that diabetes can be very dangerous and draining and that one should take care of their feet. One’s feet bear the entire weight of one’s body but always fail to get the attention and good care, as with other parts of the body.

Well, coming back to today’s post. Late last month, we, the regular (and irregular) contributors of this blog were told by our beloved SudhirJi, that the blog was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its creation and that song posts were expected from all the contributors. However, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stick up to the deadline of sending in our contributions. However, Sudhir Ji would not relent and sent me another request to send in my post. This made me very embarrassed and I made a promise to myself that come what may, I will write my post and send it today, three days after my second extended deadline.

My association with this blog actually started around two years after I started my Facebook group – Rare Hindi Film Songs in 2010. In searching for old and rare songs to post, I would often visit the blog and later I came to know that even Atul Ji, the creator of this blog was a member and a regular visitor of my group. However, it took me almost 4 years to write my first post – for the song “Chup Chup Chup Kyon Baithe Ho” – and send it to Atul Ji for moderation and posting. Since then, I have been sending in my posts in bursts, start and stop.

Till date I have just posted about 20 odd songs, but I feel so much drawn to the Atulites group that I feel I have come to my home group amongst these various people across the world, who share similar passion and views. In particular, Avinash Ji and Sudhir Ji seem to like my kind of songs from movies of the 70s and early eighties, not that others are not encouraging.

My heartiest congratulations to Atul Ji, ASAD, Atulites and all the people who love HFM, on the 10th anniversary of this endeavour !!!

Now coming to today’s song. As I have mentioned above, this is a special song for me as it has a few rare characteristics associated with it, in the HFM world and also since it is quite a rare song. It is from the Pran, Navin Nischol and Rekha starrer ‘Dharma’ released in 1973. Two other songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. For those who haven’t seen the movie or have forgotten it, the plot summary can be read here on IMDB.

Now, coming to this song with ‘Two Rare Occurrences’ for a Hindi movie!

It is an almost eight minute long song, starting with a straight cut and paste of the song “Aur Mera Naam Hai Jameela” sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the 1967 film ‘Night in London’ (composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and penned by Anand Bakshi). In both the films, Helen is the dancer performing this song on screen. But of course, the choreography is different in the two films. In this clip from ‘Dharma’, only one stanza of the original song from ‘Night In London’ is included and it is about 2 minutes in duration. Well this is one rare thing.

The second and most important rare thing about this song is that after Helen’s initial lip syncing to this cut-paste song, the actual song, sung by Asha Bhosle, is lip synced by four of the best cabaret dancers of that era. Of course after the Numero Uno – Helen – who’s in the first part. The subsequent segments are performed by Faryal, Sonia Sahani, Jayashree T and Bindu.

The video opens with Helen beginning the dance with some male dancers. The music has already begun. We can also see Ramesh Deo with Asit Sen, who is watching the dance wide-eyed and lecherously. They go to another dance bar and Faryal starts her part followed by Sonia Sahni performing in the third bar. In the fourth bar, Jayashree T is performing bhangra. In the last bar, they do drugs with drinks while Bindu is performing. In this film, Madan Puri and Ramesh Deo are together shown to cheat rich men by taking them to clubs and tempting them with wine and women. The song shows Seth Garib Das (Asit Sen) is being trapped by them and this cabaret number is organized for him.

I hope all of you like the interesting facts of this song as well as the song. Please comment.


Song – Arey Saaqi Jo Kal Ki Hai Bachi Baaki (Dharma) (1973) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Omi, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Sonik-Omi

Lyrics

yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

har ek dil ko dhadakne ki aadat huyi
main jis gali se bhi guzri qayamat huyi
log nazren bichaane lage
log nazren bichaane lage
haal dil ka sunaane lage
yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
utha parda
dekh jalwa
ke sheeshe mein
jawani ab utar jaaye
arey saaqi

rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
aa
rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
soyi hui jawani ko
tu chhoo ke zara jaga ja
meri nigahein, aadayen ye baahein bulaayen
veeraa. . .
hahh veeraa. . .aah
la laa la laa la laa la laa

o ho
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
arey saaqi

dil le ja nishaani
badi meherbaani
haaye dil le jaa nishaani
badi meherbaani
teri jiyegi
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
o mere dil jaani
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
ho mere dil jaani
haaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajana..aa..aa. . .

dum mein dum hai to dum laga
duniya kya hai nasha hi nasha
aasmaan ke baadal to
kuchh bhi nahin
mazaa to tab hai ke
zameen pe baadal bana
mere humdum
raat hai kam
ke baaton mein
ye saari
raat na jaaye
mere humdum. . .

यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

हर एक दिल को धड़कने की आदत हुई
मैं जिस गली से भी गुज़री क़यामत हुई
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
हाल दिल का सुनाने लगे
यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
उठा पर्दा
देख जलवा
के शीशे में
जवानी अब उतार जाये
अरे साक़ी

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा
सोई हुई जवानी को
तू छू के ज़रा जगा जा
मेरी निगाहें अदाएं ये बाहें बुलाएँ
वीरा॰ ॰ ॰
हाहह वीरा॰ ॰ ॰ आहह
ल ला ल ला ल ला ल ला

ओ हो
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
अरे साक़ी

दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
हाय दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
तेरी जिएगी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
ओ मेरे दिल जानी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
हो मेरे दिल जानी
हाए वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

दम में दम है तो दम लगा
दुनिया क्या है नशा ही नशा
आसमां के बादल तो
कुछ भी नहीं
मज़ा तो तब है के
ज़मीं पे बादल बना
मेरे हमदम
रात है कम
के बातों में
ये सारी
रात ना जाये
मेरे हमदम॰ ॰ ॰

“Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) was directed by B R Ishara for Nitin Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana Sultan, Anil Dhawan, Shatrughan Sinha, Manmohan Krishna, Asit Sen, Dulaari, Vivek, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Pardesi, Nayantara, Abhijeet Sen, Ravi, Roopaali, Hameed, Shakeel, Madhumati, Anand Narula, S K Sinha, M abbas, C K Shetty, Ram Singh, Prakash, Satyendra, Jeetendra Sharma, R Khosla, Master Susheel, Rashmi (new discovery) and Rukhsana (new discovery) etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

Only the audio of this song is available. Like most Mukesh songs, this song too bears the mdas touch of Mukesh, but this song somehow managed to end up becoming an obscure song. The fact that the movie failed at the box office obviously has to be the main reason why this song failed to get enough exposure among music lovers.


Song-Zindagi ke mod par ham tum miley aur kho gaye(Man Tera Tan Mera)(1971) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

pal do pal jazbaat ki ee
pal do pal jazbaat ki
lahron mein kitna josh tha
ek zara si der mein
toofaan ke dhaare kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

dil ke har ek taar ne ae
dil ke har ek taar ne
kya jaaniye kya ?? hai
saaj chheda aur sabhi nagme pareshaan ho gaye ho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par

jis kadar nazdeek aaye
jis kadar nazdeek aaye
faasle badhte gaye ae
do musaafir kab miley hain
par pahuch kar kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par
