‘Phir milenge jaanewaale yaar dasvidaaniyaa…’

Some people contend that to say ‘good bye’ is to die a little. Readers may wonder why a post introducing a song should begin with this statement.

‘Doosron ki khushi me apni khushi dhoondh lo’- This is the message that ace director Hrishikesh Mukherji conveyed in many of his movies, be it ‘Anand’, ‘Bawarchi’ or even that mediocre ‘Sabse bada Sukh’. But, perhaps, the first one amongst his movies to propagate this message was that little film ‘MemDidi’.(1961).

I grew up in a small town where everybody knew everybody and also knew each other’s ‘kartoots’. I was young enough not to understand some conversations of grownups. On one occasion when I was at a fruit sellers shop, with my father, a prominent person came to buy mangoes. It was beginning of the mango season and they were very dear. The shop keeper asked him “Sir, is it for house no. 1 or for house no. 2?” I looked at my father and he warded off my questioning look and started examining mangoes on the rack.

There have been Hindi movies on the theme of actual wars fought by Indian Defence forces post independence, with semi fictional narratives woven around those wars. The first one that left lasting impact was Chetan Anand’s “ Haqeeqat”, based on 1962 Indo- China war.

In this movie theere was a very touching Mohammad Rafi song Main ye soch kar uske dar se uthaa thaa that brought out the trauma of soldiers living far away from their beloved.

If a “Miss India “ contestant were to be asked, during the question- answer round, “What would be your next goal, if you were crowned ?”, she is unlikely to say “Mother India” :). But that is exactly what has been seen in Nargis’s celluloid journey. After her portrayal in & as ‘Miss India’ (January 1957), which cannot be described a winner at box office, she went on to portray ‘Mother India’ (October 1957) which turned out to be a land mark cinema.

Let us today listen this haunting melody, a gem of a song, long lost undeservedly. I wonder why RonoDeb Mukherji, the music Director, faded after certainly an applaudable album of ‘Tu hi meri zindagi’ (1965).

Hindi film songs have been influenced by music from various genres. That is good. Some songs are ‘inspired’- a euphemism for generously borrowing. Well, it should have been better effort. Some after getting inspiration are better than the original pieces. That is something. I would cite ‘Kaun hai jo sapnon me aya..’ from ‘Jhuk Gaya Asmaan’ which was inspired by Elvis Presely’s ‘Marguerita’

With ASAD covering 11K + songs till date, finding a new song to present, also having a link/sound track to attach, becomes more and more involved/difficult task for a contributor. I am sure one of the simple joys for the contributors must be (I am only a new entrant to the tribe) to locate one. And, if it happens to be a popular song it is an icing on the cake.

Here I am with such a joyful find. Like others have expressed it at times: “How come this song has escaped being presented?”

All of us have, arguably, resorted to day dreaming at some point. Daydreaming is a short term flight of our mind and thoughts from one’s immediate existence, during which the mind moves from reality, and into the realm of fantasy, especially one of wishful happening, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, which is experienced while being awake. Daydreaming surfaces because there is no rationing or moral policing to check them!. The state of daydreaming is between waking (with the ability to think rationally and logically) and sleeping.

There are some songs you have heard, and there are some songs whose tune and credits you can also recall. You take note of songs (& hence remember or recall them) for various reasons. It could be because it touched or exhilarated you a lot, or it is by your favourite singer/MD/Lyricist or because of an occasion in your life you associate the song with. But today’s song is remembered by me for a separate reason!
