Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.

How nice it would be to be pampered as soon as you get up-with scores of attendants waiting upon you? Ah, indulgence. Mumtaz I envy you ?

Well, I am not crazy. But just crazy about a song from “Samson” in which Mumtaz is the lady who is the privileged one. The picturization shows a princess getting from her bed. A princess whose bed is made up of light and soft feathers, with satin sheets and all ……. A horde of lady attendants waiting on her before she even opens her eyes! The attendants runs up and down fetching her an overcoat, soft/comfy slippers etc. On top of it, there is a lady, Ameeta, singing to her a kind of suprabhaat. Our princess gets praised for her beauty and her youth early in the morning just like the Gods get praised for their magnanimity and benevolence. There is a tinge of sadness in the singer’s expressions which is ever so slight. Does she have dreams of her own pleading with God and is she like a worshipper whose entreaties are shoved to a corner by the Almighty?? May be so ?

Journey Through Lata’s Melodies – 01

I was thinking of writing a post for a long time but never put thoughts into digital format. I am “The” Ms. Lazybones 🙂

Finally, thanks to the mail thread about the November 7th Gangout in Bangalore which is currently in progress with lots of enthusiasm, I am ready with a post.

In the mail thread, our own Sudhir ji added Srinivas Ganti ji inviting him to the gangout. Though Ganti ji is unable to attend it, he shared with us an article written by him on few of Lata ji’s melodies. Being a die-hard fan of Lata ji, I was completely bowled over. I immediately mailed Ganti ji about re-using his article in a series of posts. I didn’t expect him to reply so fast, I got a reply within one hour. Permission was granted 🙂 Not only that, he even shared a link where transliteration of the lyrics were made available by none other than him.

This song is from a movie called “Namumkin” from the year 1988. It is one of the lesser known movies directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. His other movies are considered masterpieces but not this one it seems.

My first post was about a girl singing about how she is feeling after falling in love. The next post was about the feelings of a girl about to be married. This one is about a girl who is being teased for her strange behavior after falling in love with the eternal one, “Krishna”. Hindi films are mostly about love in different settings, situations. Some probably think that this limits the scope of our films. But I say, why not? We should celebrate the strongest of emotions which is love, isn’t it? If all people start loving each other and there is no hatred …… This belongs to an utopian world, like my favorite song “aa chal ke tujhe”. If only this is possible….

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I was pleasantly surprised when I read the mail from Sudhirji in which he asked me to contribute a post for our blog. This was for celebrating the milestone event of 10000 posts on “atulsongaday.me” and I understood that all previous contributors were similarly requested. I was surprised because my contribution was only 1 post till then. To be even considered worthy enough for such a big event? It totally floored me. But by the time I decided to say yes, unfortunately, I had broken my right wrist. Luckily I had a post ready with me which I had sent to Atulji earlier. It had remained unpublished. I am sure he would have put it up if I had not mentioned that I did not consider it good enough for the blog. He must have thought “why upload it when the lady thinks it is not up to standards”. Right Atulji? As circumstances would have it, here comes that post without any modifications

Hmm, at last I started writing my first blog. I was thinking of doing this for a long, long time. Ever since I came to know about a very benevolent soul who lets all who want to write, to write on his blog. It is so sweet of him, I used to think. But didn’t do it for various reasons. Most of all, my laziness. Now I have shook off my laziness and am presenting my thoughts ….. Hope Atulites don’t mind it (provided of course Atul finds my writing worthy enough to be published). Published, oh that is a big word to use. My first publication, if and when that happens, I will be flying in air like the girl in the song I am discussing here. Now, please don’t ask me how else one can fly, one can only fly in air. 🙂
