Blog Day :

Today (4 november 2021) is the Deepaawali, the festival of lights.

Believe it or not, this happens to be the 14th deepaawali for the blog ! To last this long as a blog is quite an achievement.

During the occasions of previous deepaawalis, we have discussed as many as 37 deepaawali songs. All popular Deepaawali songs, including iconic songs have been covered in the past.

When I checked up the past Deepaawali articles, I realised that I had covered many interesting topics while discussing deepaawali. One of those topics was air quality or lack thereof. It is considered a topical subject because whenever Deepaawali arrives, messages spring up in Indian social media telling us that firecrrackers that we burst during deepaawali pollutes the environment.

Of late, there have been some studies that have pointed out that pollution in India is not because of Deepaawali, which lasts for just one day but because of other reasons, that take place over longer durations.

The real cause for pollution in India is like this- 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

There is this 80-20 principle, or Pareto principle which states that 20 percent activities give 80 percent of the results. So, we need to take care of these 80 % results and address the 20 percent activities that are causing them. So, if we in India are serious about improving air pollution, then we have to address the major contributors namely industrial activities, vehicle pollution and crop burning. Singling out Deepaawali, when 95 % of pollution is contribued by other activitites is hypocrisy and dishonesty on the part of these activists with selective agenda.

These activists would want us to believe that Indian cities are the most polluted and India is the most polluted country, because it is the only major country that celebrates Deepaawali.

I visited a site (iqair.com) that displays Air Quality index for major cities as well as nations. What I found in that site was quite revealing.

According to it, the top 15 most polluted cities of the world (at 8 AM on 4 november 2021) are :

SN Major City US AQI US AQI Classification
1 Lahore, Pakistan 289 Very unhealthy
2 Delhi, India 213 Very unhealthy
3 Beijing, China 199 unhealthy
4 Karachi, Pakistan 179 unhealthy
5 Kolkata, India 179 unhealthy
6 Shenyang, China 171 unhealthy
7 Dubai, United Arab Emirates 170 unhealthy
8 Mumbai, India 169 unhealthy
9 Wuhan, China 161 unhealthy
10 Dhaka, Bangladesh 160 unhealthy
11 Kabul, Afghanistan 158 unhealthy
12 Kathmandu, Nepal 152 unhealthy
13 Jakarta, Indonesia 150 unhealthy
14 Sofia, Bulgaria 139 unhealthy for sensitive groups
15 Kuwait City, Kuwait 132 unhealthy for sensitive groups

In the top 15 major cities, three Indian cities and one Nepali city figure. Other cities do not celebrate Deepaawali.

When I looked at the list of the most polluted countries in the world, I found that India is third in the list. The first two countries above India are our neighbours and they do not celebrate Deepaawali at all.

SN Country US AQI in 2020 (average) US AQI in 2019 (average) US AQI in 2018 (average) Population
1 Bangladesh 77.10 83.30 97.10 164, 689,383
2 Pakistan 59.00 65.80 74.30 220, 892,331
3 India 51.90 58.10 72.50 1,380,004,385
4 Mongolia 46.60 62.00 58.50 3,278,292
5 Afghanistan 46.50 58.80 61.80 38,928,341
6 Oman 44.40 5,106,622
7 Qatar 44.30 2,881,060
8 Kyrgyzstan 43.50 33.20 6,524,191
9 Indonesia 40.70 51.70 42.00 273,523,621
10 Bosnia Herzegovina 40.60 34.60 40.00 3,280,815
11 Bahrain 39.70 46.80 59.80 1,701,583
12 Nepal 39.20 44.50 54.10 29,136,808
13 Mali 37.90 20,250,834
14 China 34.70 39.10 41.20 1,439,323,774
15 Kuwait 34.00 38.30 56.00 4,270,563

So one can see that countries that do not celebrate deepaawali in their lands are even more polluted than India, the country that celebrates deepaawali. So the people who preach India about celebrating deepaawali should train their guns elsewhere if they are actually environment conscious.

It also shows that the reasons for pollutions lie elsewhere. It is indiscipline and third worldly lack of environmental awareness that is the major cause of pollution in these countries. Some of these countries claim to be progressing on the basis of vague figures of GDP per capita or Human development index, but when one looks closely, it turns out that these countries are plucking low hanging fruits, while disregarding pollution laws, minimum wages laws, safety laws etc.

If one wants to have an idea of the development of a country, the best way to gauge its development is its Air Quality Index(AQI). If one looks at the above tables, one finds that all the top polluting countries and cities are third world countries and their cities. Countries that are developed do not figure at the top. Even advanced nations neighbouring third world nations have good AQI while their neighbouring third world countries have poor AQI figures. Some examples of such advanced economies surrounded by third world economies are Israel and Singapore.

So unless a country addresses its environment and cleans up its air, it will not become a developed nation. India is definitely not going to become a developed nation any time soon, seeing its AQI. Same is true for China as well. Their GDP figures may look impressive, but it is gradually coming out that much of their GDP figures may be manipulated and fake. When one looks at AQI index of China, we find that China does figure among the top polluting nations, so it means that China is developing by disregarding enviroment. Sooner or later nature will get back at China. We can already see signs of that happening.

India needs to address its pollution problems, but for that, we first need to identify the real causes of pollution, instead of getting influenced by people with agendas.

I will discuss these matters in detail in future posts.

I have also discussed in the past that Deepaawali, where Goddess Laxmi is worshipped, is best celebrated if we worship Goddess Saraswati first. Worshipping Goddess Saraswati means getting educated, learning skills, upgrading our skills and becoming productive. Then we need to make use of our skills by producing goods and services, which is basically worshipping Lord Vishwkarma. When our goods and services get bought by consumers then we get money in return, or in other words, we are blessed by Goddess Laxmi.

Advanced nations, that figure low down in the list of polluting countries, follow the correct procedure of worshipping Goddess Laxmi. Much of their effort is on research and development (worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and then manufacturing goods or providing services ( worshipping Lord Vishwakarma). They do not consciously worship Goddess Laxmi, but Goddess Laxmi blesses them much more than she blesses Indians who seek to worship her just on the day of deepaawali, without first investing in worshipping Goddess Saraswati and Lord Vishwakarma.

So, I always try to tell my fellow Indians (who care to listen) that we are not worshipping Goddess Laxmi the right way. We need to worship her the way advanced Western countries worship her. Symbolic worship on one particular day will not do. Our worship should be round the clock throughout the year, and it should be to keep upgrading ourselves and keep giving goods and services that are in demand worldwide.

The festival of deepaawali, as it is celebrated in India, is easily the most important festival for Indian economy. Now that the effects of Covid 19 virus on India are receding, this deepaawali festival is likely to give a big boost to Indian economy, which is looking up after a forgettable year. I hope that the worst is over for India as well as the rest of the world.

On this occasion, I discuss a song from “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976). This movie was directed by Vijay Sharma for Pearl Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Anita Guha, Chaand Usmani, Sapru, Sujata, B M Vyas, S N tripathi, Renu, Sundar, Bharhchaari, Dilip Dutt, Neelam, Sheikh, Anant Marathe, Helen, Dalda, Hari Shukla, Narmada Shankar , Habeeb etc. The movie also had special appearances by Jagdeep, Mahipal and Jeewan.

“Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie. This son, the theme song of the movie, is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Kanan Kaushal and others.

With this song, “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deepaawali. Let us give our best (my way of worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and I am sure she will shower her wishes on us in abundant measure.

As a simpleton, I thought that Deepawali is a one day festival which is celebrated on amawasya day. Now I realise that Deepaawali begins two days in advance, namely on tryodashi (or teras). This day is popularly called Dhanteras. Next day viz chaturdashi is Narak Chaturdashi aka Chhoti deewaali. Next day, viz amawasya is the day of Laxmi pooja, and it is the real Deepaawali day. Next day, the first day of next lunar cycle, is Govardhan pooja. Next to that is Bhai dooj. That is not all. On the sixth day after Deepaawali is Chhat, a very important festival in Bihar.

I am not the only simpleton. There are others. For instance, there are people who think that Govardhan pooja has something to do with Gobar (cow dung). 🙂 Not really, Govardhan pooja is pooja of Govardhan parvat, the parvat that Lord Krishna lifted to protect Gokulwasis from severe rain.

In addition to simpletons, even agenda driven activists have a field day during Deepaawali festival. They leave no stones unturned to tell us that bursting crackers during Deepaawali is the cause behind air pollution, and that fire cracker burning deewaali celebrators are big polluters.

On checking up, I found that in India 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

So, Deepaawali contributes just 5 % of total air pollution. crop burning, which takes place in the same season contributes thrice as much pollution. vehicles, which ply round the year and not just on the day of deepaawali have been subjecting our lungs to five times more pollution that too round the clock throughout the year.

If we have to do introspection, we have to do wholesale introspection, and not just point an accusing finger towards deepaawali celebration.

The World Health Organization evaluated the concentration of PM2.5 particles to determine the most polluted place on Earth. PM2.5 (fine particulate matter 2.5) refers to tiny particles or droplets in the air that are two and one-half microns or less in width. These particles come from car, truck, bus, and off-road vehicle exhausts and from operations that involve the burning of fossil fuels such as wood, heating oil, or coal. They can also originate from indoor sources such as smoking tobacco, cooking, burning candles, or using fireplaces.

PM2.5 is an air pollutant that is a concern for people’s health when levels in the air are high. These particles reduce visibility and make the air appear hazy when levels are elevated. Some cities, such as New York, issue a PM2.5 Health Advisory when conditions are considered to be unhealthy for sensitive groups.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index calculated for major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: particle pollution (PM2.5), ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. The AQI ranges from 0 to 500, with zero representing clean air and 500 being the most hazardous. Values of 100 or below are generally thought of as satisfactory; however, when values are above 100, air quality is considered unhealthy for certain at-risk groups of people and becomes more unsafe as the value increases.

The cleanest countries in the world, as determined by the Environmental Performance Index (EPI), have high air quality, clean water, and strong environmentally-friendly policies and initiatives. These countries include Switzerland, France, and Denmark.

A total of 92 nations were evaluated to determine which had the highest number of PM2.5 – or which nations were the most polluted.

Air pollution is a severe problem in several countries. I found out that one can accurately classify countries as first world, third world etc based on air pollution level. The countries suffering the worst pollution level in the world are- Bangladesh (97.1 microgram/ cubic metres), Pakistan(74.27), India (72.5), Afghanistan (61.8),Bahrain (59.8), Mongolia (58.8). They are followed by Kuwait, Nepal, UAE, Nigeria and Indonesia.

Interestingly, first world countries like USA, European countries, Japan, Singapore etc actually have clear air, even though some of them are densely populated and highly industrialised. For example USA (9.05), Germany (13.01), Japan (12), Great Britain (10.83), France (13.16), Singapore (14.8) etc have clean air, even though some of them are located in the neighbourhood of third world countries. For instance, Singapore is located near Indonesia. Taiwan (18) is located adjacent to China (41), Israel (18) is surrounded by countries with higher pollution etc.

One can see that China, for all its pretensions of being the second largest economy in the world does not have clean air that first world countries have. So China, like India, is very much a third world country, air quality wise.

One can notice that India and almost all its neighbours have the worst air quality in the world. Except India and Nepal, other neighbours of India do not even celebrate Deewaali, nor are they industrialised. So, it is all about discipline, viz following rules (including pollution control rules) in our day to day lives. India and its neighbours are the most indisciplined countries in the world, who disobey laws and rules with abandon, and pay the price. They do not even realise that they are paying a heavy price. We in our region are taking in highly polluted air into our lungs day in and day out.

AQI (Air Quality Index) which is a superset of PM2.5 based rating is widely used to check the air quality of places. AQI below 50 is supposed to be GOOD. 51-100 is Moderate, 101 to 200 is poor, 201-300 is unhealthy, 301 to 400 is severe, 401 to 500 is hazardous.

Today, New Delhi has AQI of 390 (PM2.5 of 233), Mumbai 64 (31), Pune 221 (48), Kolkata 122 (53).

It is not that entire India is suffering from air pollution. We have places in Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala etc whose AQI is below 50 which means they enjoy clear air. For instance, Mysore, Hubli, Kozhikode, Chennai etc have acceptable air quality as of now. So if we can achieve acceptable air quality in parts of India (thanks to disciplined and responsible behaviour), it can be done elsewhere as well. Though there has been no dearth of people telling us about the ill effects of Deepaawali fire crackers, few people seem to bother about the alarming air quality throughout. It is high time we became aware of that and started taking action to rectify this situation. We cannot hope to become a first world country if we have third world level air quality.

So, unlike some others who would exhort people to shun fire crackers, I exhort people to become aware of the fact that India has very poor air quality and we are breathing in highly polluted air. We must act to improve our air quality. We need to do far far more than just shun fire frackers. We need to stop polluting the air which we are doing thanks to our irresponsible industrial and agricultural activities. Countries far more industrialised than us have managed to have cleaner air. It is time we did the same.

For now, let us celebrate Deepaawali in a responsible and safe way. Deepaawali is the festival of light. Light here does not simply mean physical light, it also means being better informed. Incidentally, the word “enlightened”, which is a synonym of “informed” has the word light in it, and that is no coincidence. Let us be enlightened and let us realise that deepaawali is the festival of lights. In addition to physical light, let us light the light of enlightenment as well.

Deepaawali is the day of Laxmi poojan. Laxmi, the goddess of wealth blesses those who are enlightened though education, training, research etc and who are able to create wealth through their enlightened activities, be they manufacture of goods, or provision of services. We find that the people whom Goddess Laxmi blesses on this day are those people who provide quality goods and services. Those who are buying these products are serving as willing couriers of wealth and they are handing over their wealth to the providers of quality goods and services. All this while, people doing deepaawali shopping are under the illusion that they are worshipping goddess Laxmi, whereas Goddess Laxmi has already been worshipped by those who are selling their stuff to the shoppers. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a deepawali song from “Jeewan Tara”(1951). This movie, apparently a dubbed movie from south, was produced and directed by Joseph Teliyeth for Citadel Films Corporation Limited, Madras. The movie had T R Mahalingam, T R Rajkumari, P S Veerappa, K Sarangpaani,C V Nayagam,K P Kamatchi, C V V Tirupathi, Somu, Swaminathan, T P Rajalakshmi,V Susheela,T S Jaya, Lallitha,Padmini etc in it.

The song, second song from the movie to appear in the blog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and prosperous deepaawali.

Blog Day : 3764 Post No. : 14737

Today (7 november 2018) is Deewaali, the festival of lights. It is the biggest festival in India, and it has kept on becoming bigger and bigger with time.

For the blog, it happens to be our eleventh Deewaali. Unblievable but true that this blog has lasted this long and has in fact gone on to evolve and progress as well.

We have discussed all the well known Deewaali festival songs during the previous ten occasions. The aricles accompanying these songs may have covered the festival from several angles. Some articles have dscussed the history of the festival, while others may have touched its financial worth.

In my discussion the last year, I had opined that our worship of Goddess Laxmi can succeed only if we have worshipped Goddess Saraswarti and Lord Viswwakarma, whose festivals come earlier in the year. By worship, I meant not the symbolic worship but following the spirit behind the worship.

For instance, worshipping Goddess Saraswati means acquiring quality education and skills, and business knowhow, while worshipping Lord Vishwakarma means putting all that acquired education, skill and knowedge to use into providing quality goods and services that can be traded. These commercial activities bring you money, viz Laxmi, and that too without necessarily worshippng her symbolically during Deewaali festival. Look at the prosperous nations of the West and far east. They worship Goddess Saraswati the right way (stressing on high quality education) and worship Lord Vishwakarma (creating vast industrial infrastructure). Little wonder then that they are blessed by Goddess Laxmi throughout the year, and not just on the occasion of Deewaali.

A good number of Indians on the other hand are scarcely blessed by Goddess Laxmi, and I have already given the reasons above. Most Indians do not invest on acquiring useful skills because that is hard work. Indians somehow try to avoid working hard and hope to move ahead through short cut methods. When it comes to dealing with other humans, these short cut methods are bribes, sycophancy, sifaarish and other forms of corruption, which may bring “results” for the individuals but in the long run it proves counterproductive for society and the nation as a whole. No country in the world has ever progressed to become a prosperous nation by adopting short cup methods. I have been doing a lot of studies off late on the topic of economy where I have looked at the nations that were poor like India in the past but have now become prosperous. They have done so by adopting the right policies, which involved quality education, healthcare etc, adopting business friendly policies and enforcement of discipline and rule of law.

India is on the right track I feel, but the number of people blessed by Goddess Laxmi in India can increase only if we sincerely and seriously worship Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishwakarma as the advanced Western and Far Eastern countries do. India does not have much time left to squander. India has another one decade or so to get its act together. If Indians can ensure quality education and have skilled employable manpawer and the right infrastructure and policies during the next one decade then Goddess Laxmi will begin to favour Indians like she favours the West and Far East nations. The vast manpower (then the biggest in the world, overtaking China), if educated and trained properly would be an asset for the nation. India cannot afford to fail here because failure means this vast population, if not employable, would then become a burden on the nation.

How to harness manpower for national development is a vast subject and I will cover it in some future date. Right now, people are in festival mood and most of them have more immediate pressing issues to worry about rather than long term issues like progress of the nation.:)

One important immediate issue that people worry about on the eve of Deewaali is- will I get leave to go home. 🙂 If somehow he/she manages to get leave, then the next worry is- trains are going crowded, how will I be able to reach home for festival. Indians, as is their wont, cannot help but look for short cuts here too. Ticket is wait listed. No problem. I will do something. So, a few days ago, I find an unsolicited whatsapp good morning message on my official mobile number. A few hours later, the person comes to the point. My son is employed in Mumbai. He has to come home to me for deewaali. He is wait listed. Here are the details. My take- I do not even know, who is this person, moreover, I am not based at Mumbai.Train is from A to B. I am based at C. This stranger wants me to go out of my way and help him. I am a soft hearted man by default, so I decide to help. I give the details to a staff of mine to be sent to concerned person in Mumbai, while telling him that I do not know who this person is. My staff is of the view that this person, going by his location must have obtained this number from the kid of my predecessor, who stays in this location B. OK, let us help him even if he is a stranger to me. So the requisition for emergency quota goes to Mumbai. On the date of journey, Mumbai office honours the request and allots a berth against emergency quota to the person. So this person is able to go to his parents during festival. Happy ending. Claps.

What about me and my family ? No such luck. I am based in eastern UP. My wife is a state government employee in MP. MP is going to assembly polls later in the month. Model code of conduct is in force in MP. So state government employees will not be given leave from now till the elections are over. So, unlike previous years, my wife and daughter will not join me for Deewaali at my place. First time ever for me to be away from my family during Deewaali. It happens. Elections are important. Country’s fate hinges on them. My wife often nags me to try and get myself posted in MP. Easier said than done, I tell myself sotto voce. Moreover, I feel that I am making a real contribution in the development of this place. It may look idealistic, but I feel that the nation will develop only if the backward areas of the nation, viz UP and Bihar develop. It is the duty of all people, including those from outside UP and Bihar, to help in the cause. I sincerely and seriously believe that I am adding my mite in this important work of nation building. I keep all these idealistic thoughts to myself of course. I do not think my wife will understand these sentiments. 🙂

Since all low hanging fruits, viz popular Deewaali songs, have already been plucked on past occasions, we are left with Deewaali songs that are obscure ones.

Here is an extremely obscure Deewaali song. It became available on YT when our own My Saradand Kamath uploaded it sometime back. The song is from “Badi Baat” (1944).

“Badi Baat” (1944) was produced and directed by Mazhar Khan for Mazhar Arts, Bombay. The movie had Swarnlata, Ulhas, Yakub, Mazhar Khan, Moti, Gulab, Khaleel, Madhusudan, Lalita, Mishra, Saguna, Ram Marathe, Baby Roshan, Chandra etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

Only The name of Kusum Mantri is mentioned in HFGK though the song seems to have at least another female voice, plus chorus. Swami Ramanand is the lyricist. Music is composed by Feroz Nizami.

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

I may have been unable to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

I take this opportunity wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deewaali.

khushi se naach rahe hain naina
deep jale har oar
jaise sundar rain hai pyaari
ho na iski bhor kabhi bhi
ho na iski bhor

laut ke waapas na jaaye ye
raat(?) bulaane waali
ye raat(?) bulaane waali
ye raat(?) bulaane waali
phir aayi hai deewaali
deewaali
deewaali
phir aayi hai deewaali

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.

Today (11 november 2015) is Deepaawali, the festival of lights. This festival is easily the biggest festival of India. Initially this was just a festival of lights but now it has become a festival when people go on a shopping spree on a major scale. Indian market records their maximum sales of the year during the festival. People have been sold the idea that it is an auspicious occasion for buying expensive items.:) It is a day when shoppers make sure that Goddess Laxmi reaches the households of shopkeepers with a vengeance. 🙂
