Today (19 october 2017) is deepaawali, the biggest festival in India.

It may sound unbelievable, but it is the tenth Deepawali for the blog today (19 october 2017) ! The fact that we have lasted this long, and instead of losing steam, we seem to be adding new features to the blog means that we have come quite a long way from the first deepaawali of this blog in 2008.

We have covered 33 deepaawali songs in the blog in the past, and that includes all the well known deepaawali festival songs.

When we look at the deepaawali songs, we find that these songs can be broadly divided into two categories- happy and sad. Happy deepaawali songs exhort us to celebrate the festival, whereas sad deepaawali songs lament the fact the deepaawali may be happy for some but not quite so for others.

That should make us to think. How come the festival brings happiness for some but not for others, when presumably everyone is worshipping the same goddess Laxmi on the occasion !

I have give this matter some thought and I have come to my own conclusions.

I feel that we as Indians try to take short cuts instead of taking the trouble to achieve results the hard way, be it in our normal works, or in worship. So when we worship the goddess Laxmi, we think that doing her chaaploosi (singing her prayers) as well as bribing her (by offering her some chadhhaawa) does the trick. That way, we tend to believe that our gods are like our public officials.

Then people wonder why goddess Laxmi did not favour them. If one thinks about it, Goddess Laxmi does not favour the chaaploos and the bribe givers, rather she favours those who often do not even observe the festival of deepaawali. If we think about it, the richest and most prosperous nations of the world do not even observe deepaawali unlike Indians.

How is it that Americans, Germans, Japanese, South Koreans, people who do not even observe deepaawali are the most prosperous nations in the world ?

To my mind, they are prosperous because they actually worship two other Gods. The first is Goddess Saraswati. No, they do not do it by installing an idol of her on basant panchami, rather they do it by attaching enormous importance to quality education for their people.

A country’s wealth (defined as GDP per capita) is positively associated with its education expenditures. US spends 5.6 % of its GDP on education which amounts to $2600 per capita. India spends 3.3 % of its GDP on education and that adds up to a niggardly $ 50 per capita. So we see that US spends more money on education than the total GDP of India. Little wonder then that US citizens are in general vastly better educated.

After one is educated, that education must be used to build the nation. In other words, worship of goddess Saraswati must be followed by worship of Lord Vishwakarma. In India, manual labour is so looked down upon that blue collar workers, who help build the industry of a nation, are considered of low social status i India. We in India did not even worship Lord Vishwakarma till recently. It is only some one hundred years ago that British rulers introduced Vishwakarma Puja in India. It is the only Indian Puja that is held according to English calendar.

Put simply, we look down upon hands on work. We look down upon honest hard work. Whatever education that we as Indians receive gets wasted as it is not fruitfully employed.

Since we are neither properly educated nor properly trained in various vocations, so the quality of our output is poor. We do not appreciate quality. Little wonder then that our productivity is low which reflects in our abysmal per capita GDP of $ 1600, which is less that what US spends on education per capita.

When we worship goddess Laxmi on the Deepaawali night and hope that the goddess would bless us, how exactly is she going to bless us ? Surely it cannot be through lottery or jackpot. It will be through the same usual source, viz salary for the salaried, and through sales for the shop keeper. On the eve of Deepaawali, some staff earn “bonus” which a few days later end up in the bank accounts of shop keepers. So in effect it is the shop keepers who really get blessed by Goddess Laxmi during Deepaawali. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a song from “Shrimati Jee”(1952). This movie was directed by I S Johar for Filmistan, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Nasir Khan, Ram Singh, Murad, Samson, Vimla, Indira, Prabha, Baldev Mehta, Ram Avtar, Yashwant, Mirazkar, Agha Miraz, Majnu, Johar etc in it.

There were ten songs in the movie. nine of these songs have been covered in the blog. This tenth and final song from the movie is a deepaawali song where people implore goddess Laxmi to arrive at their residence. Why goddess Laxmi would not favour them with her visit has been explained by me in the writeup above. 🙂

The song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

With this rare song, “Shrimati Jee”(1952) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportuity to wish all the contributors, visitors and well wishers of this blog a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali. May Goddess Laxmi REALLY favour you with her blessing.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 56 #
———————————————–—————-

Recently the blog had been going slow as both our bosses were occupied by some work or the other, blog related, as well as occupational and personal. 🙂  Taking a clue from the number of posts on the blog and later on clarified by Atul ji himself (about the housekeeping of the blog), I had also almost stopped sending mails for new contributions, reminder for old ones and others.

Now, few days back I got into touch with Atul ji to check if it is convenient now for him to review some posts. He immediately advised me that ‘I should do that’. Now, where to start and with which song/post? Was the big question. It always happens when I have to resume something on the blog after a gap. Though I may not be sending some contributions but the thought process and thinking of new posts/topics is always going in the mind. It becomes very difficult when we already have many many songs yet to be posted on the blog even if we consider them for the period 1930 to 1980s.

Given that the ‘Navratri’ festival is in progress, I decided to resume sharing with this song (pending for long, since 2013 🙂 ). It is a ‘Maata Bhajan’. It is from the 1974 movie ‘Aalingan’, sung by Mahendra Kapoor.

‘Alingan’ (alias ‘The Embrace’) is directed by CL Dheer for ‘Jasmine Films, Bombay’. It is produced by PP Javeri. The star cast of this ‘social’ movie incudes Romesh Sharma, Zahira, Suresh Chatwal, Anjana, Achala Sachdev, Nitin Sethi, Ashoo, Raji Sethi, Satyen Kappu, Chanda, Poonam, Vinod Sharma, Raj Verma, Nagar, Cando, Jugnu and Pompy.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Shashi Bhushan, and the dialogues were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Ramesh Ahluwalia had done the editing for this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.03.1974.

The movie has total five songs (including the today’s two part song), four written by Jan Nisar Akhtar, and one by Naqsh Lyallpuri. As per HFGK Vol-V, the music for this movie was composed by Jaidev and Sapan Jagmohan. Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie. As per HFGK the song being presented today is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Out of the five songs of this movie three songs have been posted on the blog so far. Today’s song is fourth song of this movie ‘Aaglingan’ to appear on the blog. When I initially shared this song in 2013 there was only one version (or part) of this song that I could locate at that time. Later after a gap of two years i.e. in 2015 I became aware of a second part of this song (which in the movie is an extension of the first part), having an unknown male voice along with Mahendra Kapoor who is main singer of the song. However HFGK Vol V does not mention this song in two parts and the name of the other singer (I guess it is Narendra Chanchal).

Now since the movie is available online I decided to watch it, because the link of the second part that I found in 2015 had become obsolete now and was not available. Though audio for both the parts was now available. I must say that the movie is interesting and one can watch it once. It did have its own highs and lows, but also touches some relevant issues like the individuals sacrificing their lives for the country and families serving the armed forces and where we have families whose generation after generation have been serving the armed forces and sacrificing their lives fighting wars.

Now as per the titles of this movie credits for ‘Music’ are to Jaidev only. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this.

So far we have three songs from this movie already posted on the blog. These are,

Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Taqaaza Na Kiya
I am aware of this song since late eighties as it is in one of the compilation cassette of Manna Dey songs in my collection.

Hamaare Dil Ko Tum Ne Dil Bana Diya
In the above post Atul ji have mentioned the name of both Jaidev and Sapan Jagmohan, which I am sure he has taken from the information given in HFGK.

And, “Is Tarah Jaao Nahin

Coming back to the today’s song, a Goddess Durga bhajan, it happens at the end of the movie where the hero’s mother Achala Sachdev has organized a ‘Durga Pooja’ as our hero and heroine are getting marry. But one can see in the video of this song that the heroine has some different thoughts in her mind and she decides to run away from the marriage (and commit suicide). However the hero saves her and then it is there that the heroine explains the trauma she had gone through. And this brings us to the climax of the movie where the hero of the movie Romesh Sharma, heroine Zahira and Zahira’s mother (I am unable to identify the actress) get rid of Zahira’s step father, who is the villain in this movie. Again I am forgetting this actor’s name who I remember to have watched in many movies of those years.

All this happens while the pooja ceremonies are still in progress, and the ‘devotees’ are still praising the Goddess and singing this bhajan. As the hero and heroine happily join the ‘pooja’ after the villain’s end, we get to the extended version of this song which is part two of this song. I am also unable to identify the actor lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and I would request knowledgeable readers to identify this actor please.

Let us now listen to this beautiful composition,

Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

Today (7 august 2017) is the festival of Raakhi aka rakshabandhan. This festival is being celebrated from time immemorial, may be for more than two thousand years or so. Some interesting tales regarding this festival are mentioned in various sources. It would see that amulets were tied by women on men (not necessarily their brothers) for mens’ protection in ancient times. It was later that this practice took the present day form of sisters tying it on brothers’ wrist.

Today (24 july 2017) is the First Monday of the Holy month of Shravan, as observed in the Western, some Eastern and Southern states of India. On this occasion, here is a very melodious Shiv bhajan from the film Shivratri-54. Chitragupta, the King of melody, has composed this bhajan by G.S. Nepali, and is sung sweetly by Asha Bhosle.

A very Happy Holi to 9th holi today (13 march 2017) on this blog. And every holi we have Atul posting songs for the occasion. We have approximately 50 songs to celebrate holi. So does that mean we are out of songs? No, not at all! How can that happen? As long as we have Hindi Movies and as long as they have songs in them we can be sure of at least one holi song a year if not more. Oh, I seem to be echoing Sudhirji’s thoughts from his 2015’s holi post. But that is the truth of the matter. Holi will never go out of fashion in Bollywood. The only thing that might change is that people will request others to have dry holi this year as many parts of the country are facing drought conditions. And still others will opt for using organic colours that are less harmful to the skin etc. But what about the general public of the country who cannot afford the expensive organic stuff they will stick to the traditional gulal in various hues.

I don’t even remember when and where was my last holi; possibly when I had just moved to Dahisar in Mumbai back in 2000. But I still love to see others forget themselves in this game of colours. And also, I love to think of all the famous delicacies that are made at Holi. I have heard of Ghujiyas and Kaanji Vadas, Thandaai and Bhaang.
