Hullo all Atulwaasis

I want to thank a few people who made me what I am. And the few means a small number of 25 or so teachers. Today (5 september 2017) is TEACHER’s Day.

During school days, we used to eagerly wait for this day. Those were the days when we didn’t have regular pocket money and we had to put an application to our parents for anything from Re. 1 to Rs. 5 (depending on what the class organizing committee would have set as the minimum individual contribution.)

The money so collected would then be meticulously divided among the various expenses viz :- decoration material for the class, gift for the class teacher and flowers for the other teachers who would come in during the day. The day also had some students from senior classes dressed up as teachers and they would be assigned to take up classes as substitutes for subject- teachers. Probably that was the way our teachers thought that we would get an experience of how students behave with teachers. All in all it would be a non-instructional working day. (I don’t know how the students these days celebrate teacher’s day.) Another day set aside for commemorating teachers in India and Nepal is Guru Purnima or Ashad Shukla Purnima which falls some time in July-August.

My favourite reference point Wikipedia tells me that teacher’s day is celebrated in many countries. It is a day of appreciating teachers for their special contribution in a particular field or community in general. The date varies from country to country (in most cases they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education) and World Teacher’s Day is on 5th October.

India celebrates Teacher’s day, since 1962, on 5th September in memory of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan whose birthdate it is. He was India’s first Vice President and second President; a distinguished scholar of comparative religion and philosophy. His philosophy was rooted in Advaita Vedanta, reinterpreting this tradition for a contemporary understanding. He was awarded several high awards including a knighthood in 1931, the Bharat Ratna in 1954, and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. Radhakrishnan believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”.

Mahesh Bhatt made a movie in 1993 with the title “Sir”.

Today’s song is written by Qateel Shifai. Anu Malik is the composer; Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Kumar Shanu are the singers. It is a stage song performed by Pooja Bhatt and Atul Agnihotri. Paresh Rawal, Mushtaq Khan and Naseer are in the audience.

This was the debut of Atul Agnihotri in movies and this is the debut of this movie on our blog. It is from Mahesh Bhatt’s 1993 movie with the title “Sir”. It is the story of a college teacher ‘Naseeruddin Shah’ and his student ‘Pooja Bhatt’ who has a stammering problem. But since this was a Bollywood movie the story has many side tracks like love between two students, opposition of the father, and gang war added in for good measure.

P.S. How I wish I could have sent this to my English teacher from school for correcting and marking me as she did so many years back on all my essays. Remembering and missing all of them today.

This was a post I had written last year to be posted on teacher’s day. A few things have changed in my life since- (1) I managed to track down my English teacher mentioned herein and also visited her the last time I went to Chennai. Also, I am happy that I am in regular touch with her so I will actually, be able to forward this to her for her opinion. (2) my son has become a college lecturer.

FARIYAAD (1964) was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma under the banner of Show People. Ashok Sharma ( son of Kidar Sharma) and Zeb Rahman (also known as Preetibala) were in the lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Dilip Dutt and Tuntun in the supporting roles. I remember to have read the reports in some of the film magazines at that time about propping up of Preetibala (Zeb Rahman) as another Madhubala in the making taking advantage of the resemblance of her face with that of Madhubala.

A lovely and endearing song – a song that I encountered just today for the first time. Sometimes, well not only sometimes, but quite often, some of the songs by Asha Bhosle, give you a sudden surprise – oh OK, so it is Asha. On first hearing in passing, if one did not know the singer’s name, the mind would not easily pick out Asha ji’s name as the singer. Yes, a very soft, a very humble, and a very mellow composition.

I have posted a couple of songs from “Aan” (1952) in this blog, but this song was not one of them.

Here is another superb Rafi song. This song is from a 1966 movie called “Gaban”. Though it is a very well known song, but for some reason its video is not available, and the few clips available show school / college albums with this song playing in the background. Here is this song without such irritants and with the photo of Rafi instead.
