Sometimes you wonder why a song becomes a huge hit. And at other times, you wonder why a song doesn’t.

Today, as I write this post, I am left to ponder on why this song did not become as huge a hit as, in my opinion, it deserved to. The only explanation I can come up with is that the film tanked badly at the box office. And as we know, many a song has suffered purely because the film itself didn’t do well.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I present today’s song on this blog.

I’ve often said that one of the many joys for me, when I sit to listen to music, is to discover songs I’ve never heard before. This discovery might come from the radio, or from the internet. Or from another person.

A few days ago, on Shakeel Badayuni’s birth anniversary, Atul wrote a post paying tribute to him. In that post, Atul did a thorough analysis of how this blog has covered Shakeel saab. He analysed it by composer and further, by film. It made for very interesting reading.

Yesterday I happened to watch Anubhav (1971). I had last seen this film when I was a young boy. I must admit I wasn’t particularly impressed by it at that time. In those days, I was into “fun” movies which either had action (like Mera Gaon Mera Desh) or a typical storyline with catchy music (like Kati Patang). Anubhav had neither. The music was beautiful but not the type a 10-year old would find fun.

31st July is a date that immediately makes a connect with many Hindi film music lovers. Young or old, many of them associate it with one and only one event – the passing of Mohammad Rafi.

It is well past 3.00 in the night (early hours of the 18th of July) as I start to write this post for the blog. I’m tired, my eyes are almost closing, I know I should be going to sleep – but the mind is rebelling and urging me on. It is saying “Go on, you can do it, you need to do it. You need to write a post, however tired you are, however badly the post comes out. You cannot let him down. Not on his death anniversary.”

When I saw Naqli Nawab (1962) a few days ago, I got into the mood to watch Muslim socials. As it is, this is a genre I am fond of. If nothing else, the Urdu alone is good enough to keep me interested in the film. Everything else – a storyline, a qawwali or mushaira, lavish sets – is a bonus.

So I followed Naqli Nawab with Mehboob Khan’s Najma (1943) and B R Chopra’s Chandni Chowk (1954).

When I was a kid, I lived in a small township where we had a medical centre as part of the facilities within the township. It was manned by a fine doctor, Dr. Sinha. He was from Bihar, never spoke much, but his diagnosis was excellent. He never over-dosed patients – I remember he would often send me back home without prescribing any medicines at all. To my disappointment!:-) I’d get well on my own, within a day or so.
