It’s been a while since my last post here.  And to be absolutely honest, I haven’t even been active on the blog recently.

This is for a variety of reasons, none of which is, thankfully, any cause of worry. I go into this shell from time to time. I hope Atul, and my other friends here, know me long enough now to not mind my absence. It is nothing to do with the blog or with them, it is just me and my bizarre-ness. Anyway, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I’m back here today.

But why today? What’s so special about today? Well, today is special, not just for one, but for two reasons. Firstly, the 8th of March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. Secondly, it also happens to be the birthday of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of our most celebrated poets and lyricists.  And most people who know me on this blog know what a special place Sahir has in my heart.  I have often posted his songs here, especially on his birth and death anniversaries. I feel that’s the least I can do for him.

Today, the 8th of March, is a very special day for some of us.

No, it’s not because it is International Women’s Day. Well, that too, but also because it is the birthday of somebody associated with the Hindi film industry who is very close to us.

Yes, I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Sb would have been 96 today had he been alive.

The last two weeks of December are usually relatively busy weeks for me. I say “relatively” only in the context of the rest of the year for me, which is reasonably relaxed. My generally lazy nature gets a thorough jolt and wake-up call, in these last two weeks.

Another day, another milestone! Only the other day we were celebrating Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And now we have another milestone.

Some might say, this blog is beginning to deliver milestones like Virat Kohli or Ravichandran Ashwin do. 🙂
But who’s complaining? I, most certainly, am not! 🙂

As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.

Ok, I’ve got a new favourite song now.

It is a measure of my still very limited knowledge of songs, in comparison to the vast ocean out there, that I still keep discovering songs that I fall in love with.

If one were to analyse Hindi film songs by content, most of them would fall in the love-romance category. This is understandable because a very high proportion of films revolve around love and romance.

On Children’s Day (14th November) we had introduced the children’s film, Dak Ghar (1965) to the blog. This film, produced by the Children’s Film Society of India, is based on the Bengali play of the same name, written by Rabindranath Tagore in 1912.

Today is the 14th of November, celebrated in India as Children’s Day.

This is a day that is remembered to mark the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister and one of India’s Founding Fathers, Jawaharlal Nehru. Since he was considered to be particularly close to children, the day is celebrated as Children’s Day.
