Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 04
——————————————————————————–
The last song posted in this series was Aaya hoon main dilbar teri anjuman mein le kar . It has been a while and I should be making tracks to complete the series as planned. That is what I am doing with Rafi Sahab’s 36th death anniversary which is just a few days away.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 03
——————————————————————————–

Sometimes when I am contemplating a post and thinking about how to start and what to write in a song post, there are those long forgotten thoughts and sayings or some impressions formed in earlier decades that come to mind. Today, though was very hectic for me, since morning I was on the move, and the heat in Mumbai was not helping. Some how all these factors culminated in me getting a headache by lunch time, which kept worsening as the day wore on. But in the office I had certain urgent things to see to, plus to meet certain people. Changes and advancements in one’s career, though one actively seeks and strives to achieve, also bring about the need of all sorts of adjustments and getting acquainted with new responsibilities. It was one of those days, where the transition was for me to absorb and to look ahead with positivism. But for the headache. Eventually I did kill it with paracetamol. So tomorrow is going to be a new day, promising and bright, God willing.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 02
———————————————————————-

wo dil jo maine maangaa thaa magar gairon ne paayaa thaa
badi shai hai agar, uski pashemaani mujhe de do

Yesterday I visited the page again on the song ‘Tum Apna Ranj o Gham, Apni Pareshaani Mujhe De Do‘. I know the words are ‘badi shai hai agar‘, on which there is the long thread of comments. ‘Shai’, in common urdu is a thing or an object.  ‘badi shai hai ‘ literally means , its a big thing or a big deal.  As it is said in English that ‘its a big deal for me’ or means a lot to me.

In the year 2014 I had done a series called “Chaandni Raaten”. The series remained sort of incomplete, and now it is too far back to restart it. As is my practice, I give a list of all songs featuring in a particular series in the last song post, even that remained to be done. I had planned to post a few more songs, which were suggested and were suitable to the theme. But that was not to be. So I am posting here one of those songs as a closure. This song was found for me by one of the regular visitors to the blog ‘ blufire ji’, as I was looking for a Talat Mehmood song for the series.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 01
———————————————————————-
This is a revival of the series ‘Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable(II)’. Part I of the series had reached perfect conclusion with the 10th song ‘na de ilzaam dil unn ko “. Now I feel that part II of the series is also called for. ‘Zarurat eejad ki maa hai’ meaning – necessity is the mother of invention. The saying in urdu felt believable when I was a child. If I ever say this front of my son, he is going to laugh at me, I am sure. He will have hundred examples to disprove the concept.

It is all about feline creatures. Cats are said to have nine lives. Who says ? Maybe some legend. It is also said that the truth is stranger than fiction. I imagine behaviorally cats are closer to humans than monkeys, theory of evolution not withstanding. Or maybe felines are the evolved human race, and in previous lives they were human, who knows. Anyway I have also heard that the civilized world is all going to cats and dogs. No kidding, this proves my hunch that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. (Note : No sleight or slander intended to cats, dogs, monkeys, humans and their assorted species).

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable – Song No. 10
—————————————————

Remembering Rafi Sahab on his 35th death anniversary :

When I heard this song for the first time a few days ago, I was looking for a Roshan song to post on 14th July for the birth anniversary of the maestro. This song when heard properly, is surely a masterpiece by its creators. I promptly wrote a post and sent it to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, without checking properly if I got the correct ‘Roshan’. As it turned out this song is composed by Roshan Lal Khatri, and not Roshanlal Nagrath, whose birth anniversary it was on 14th July.

Yes, it is that monsoon season. Monsoon has made the Mumbai city and the surrounds all “jal thal’. What came as welcome relief from the heat soon turned to a deluge, causing disruption.

“I’m…fine. I’m just sorry you had to wander under the little black cloud that’s been following me around all day. That’s probably why I nearly ran you over earlier, and why you got stuck with me now.”

Refusing to consider what else could go wrong, she aimed a commendably calm smile at him. If she’d learned anything from her years in advertising, it was that perception was everything. If you appeared in control, everyone thought you were.

“The good news is that it’s me, not you, and that bad days get better.”

“What about bad weeks?”

“Those are the ones that build character.” Or so her grandma said.

“Bad months?” he asked, and watched as her smile made it to her eyes. Something knowing shifted in those doe-brown depths.

“That’s when you need to find something to do that takes you away from your problems for a while. Whatever you’re dealing with won’t go away,” she warned him,“but for that hour or that day, you have taken away its power over you.”

The above is just a portion of some pulp fiction that I keep reading every now and than. When there is nothing good to read, usually after the Sudoku in the newspapers is done and i have read the usual article’s that are readable in the newspaper. Some times these books have these ” nuggets of wisdom ” or some portions where a lot is said like in the above portion. I had copied and saved in the drafts to use for a suitable song some months back, though it has no connection with the song post here.
