nand ghar anand bhayo
jai kanhaiyya lal ki

Greetings all friends on this auspicious celebration of Nandotsav today. Just a little while back, the prayers and aartis were being held in all temples celebrating the anniversary of the appearance of Krsna, in a jailhouse in Mathura. The main telecast was coming from the Janambhoomi temple in Mathura itself. All temples were crowded with devotees who had come for the darshan of infant Krsna, who appeared to Devaki and Vasudev during their confinement in the prison of Kans, the cruel and vengeful king of Mathura.  And worse, Kans was the cousin brother of the very lady, Devaki, whom he had imprisoned. The story of that confinement and of the reasons behind it has been told many times.

The interesting thing to contemplate is the circumstances that accompanied this event of the ‘birth’ of the Almighty, in form of an infant. As is documented in the historical record, the appearance of the Lord occurred at midnight. The sky was overcast and the entire surroundings were in deep darkness. Sleep had descended heavily on every inhabitant of Mathura, including the keepers of the prison. When the Lord appeared, all locks opened and all chains dropped away, by themselves. And the only two people awake in that dark night were Devaki and Vasudev.

As per a pre-plan, Vasudev carried the ‘new born’ infant in a straw basket, and walked all the way from Mathura to the home of Nand Baba, in the village of Gokul, across the Yamuna river. The entire household of Nand Baba was also in darkness and all the occupants of that home were also in deep sleep. Vasudev laid the ‘new born’ child to sleep besides the sleeping Yashoda, and carried away the newborn girl child with him, back to Mathura. The details of the encounter with Kans next morning are well known too, as to how he tried to end the life of the girl child also, as he had ended the life of six male infants before that.

The scenario at the Nand Baba’s household, next morning as the family awoke from sleep, was full of joy and happiness. Ladies of the house espied the beautiful child sleeping next to Yashoda. They rushed to inform Nand Baba. And after that, all celebrations broke loose. Thousands of visitors came to the home of Nand Baba, from Gokul and from other nearby villages and towns. There was an unending stream of people coming and going from that household. All forms of instruments were being played. There was singing and dancing and shouting. And yes, feasting also.

And so, in a manner of speaking, the real celebration of this appearance of the Lord, is the day of Nandotsav, the day when the child was first seen in the household of Nand Baba. On the night before, there was no one around to see this event of His appearance, and no one to congratulate and celebrate, no singing and dancing took place. This tradition is still carried by many temples and many households in the Brij region. The real celebrations of the appearance of the Lord start at the break of dawn, on the next day. For them, the event of appearance of the night before is not known.

This song of Nandotsav celebration in the home of Nand Baba, is from the 1957 film, ‘Neel Mani’. The words are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is by Chitragupt. The singing voices are those of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur, accompanied by chorus. This film makes a debut on our blog today.

And yes, Atul ji, here is a song by Rafi Sb from the year 1957. So Rafi Sb’s count now goes to 2601 and the songs of the year 1957 make a century break at 400. And so the other target that you had in mind for yesterday, is also being met today.

Once again, a ton of good wishes and greetings to all, on this joyous occasion of the appearance of the Lord. May this celebration fill your life with happiness and peace, and that your household and family be blessed with good health and prosperity.

Jai Kanhaiyya Lal Ki

All numbers are unique unto themselves – inasmuch as each number has its own claim to fame just by being what it is. And but for the imagination and fancies applied by our minds, which at times picks on certain characteristics and binds some special stature to some of them, all these numbers would be as interesting, or for that matter disinteresting, as any other number. Let me quote the instance of a number that has now become famous as the ‘Hardy – Ramanujan Number’. This anecdote is attributed to a conversation in or about 1919 (wow, ninety seven years ago), that happened in London. Indian mathematician Srinivas Ramanujan, who was based in London for some time, was ill and confined to his bed at his residence. His friend, Godfrey Hardy, another mathematician (who had invited and arranged for Ramanujan’s travel etc. to London), came visiting him. The initial conversation was about Hardy’s journey to see Ramanujan. He mentioned off hand that the number of the taxicab in which he had travelled, was 1729 – for all intents a most uninteresting and boring number. To this comment, Ramanujan replied that ‘1729’ was a very special number. In fact it is the smallest number that can be represented as the sum of two cubes, in two different ways. (I am avoiding the calculation details; interested readers can google this for more details).

So the point I am trying to make is that a number is a number is a number. We humans try to discover interesting aspects, and attach interesting characteristics, to make the discussion interesting. Now coming to our blog. We too have a fancy for numbers, as is evident by the amount of discussion and mental calisthenics applied to certain categories. Always, a century milestone has been a matter of big celebration. But I am sensing a drift now in the enthusiasm associated with it. Maybe, after celebrating one hundred and twenty three (123 for short) century milestones, the glitter of this theme is kind of wearing thin. Quoting Peevesie’s Mom ji, from one of her recent comments – she says she is no longer so enamored by the century breaks; she now looks forward more to the thousandth milestones. In fact, we all do remember how big an affair the ten thousandth milestone turned out to be.  After that, the century events look somewhat timid and also ran. In recent memory, the bigger affairs have been the eleven thousandth and the twelve thousandth campsites.

And yes, in between, do pop up, some special patterns which do warrant a special hullabaloo. The previous one in memory was the five aces number – ‘11111’, which was eventually adorned by the iconic song from the film ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) – “Hum Ko Tum Se Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar Kya Karen”. I do remember emails popping in from some gang members before we arrived at that number, goading Atul ji and myself to plan something special. And once we ran past the twelve thousandth barrier, there were more than one comments and messages about the arrival of the next peculiar signboard – the number of today’s post – twelve thousand three hundred and forty five, or 12345 for short. In the past couple of weeks, yes, there have been a couple of reminders, requesting us not to miss this opportunity to celebrate this most interesting pattern in five digit numbers – all digits in a perfect ascending sequence. And I did assure Mahesh ji, whose reminders were consistent, that yes, we are seized of this eventuality and will be planning something special.

But to tell you people the real truth – this time around, me and Atul ji were quite at sea, grappling with various combinations and probabilities, and for a longest possible time, we were not able to come up with an interesting combination of milestones or targets or situations that would do justice to this sequential 5 digit number, and also be ensconced inside a song, such that a post may be created out of it. The communications that Atul ji and I have been having, tell of the zaniness of ideas we were bouncing around and the near despair that we were facing in coming up with a deserving tie up. The story goes something like this, in short.

The first and the obvious thing to do is to go for a song that goes with the line “Ek Do Teen Chaar. . .”. Now coming to think of it, this is not at all a difficult thing to do. There is any number of such songs in the realm of Hindi film music. Actually, Atul ji had even selected the one from the film ‘Tezaab’ (1988) – “Ek Do Teen, Chaar Paanch Chhe Saat Aath Nau, Das Gyaarah, Baarah Teraah”. Well, not a bad idea at all – this song was one of the greatest hits of 1988 and the starting bars – “Ding Dong Ding, Ding Dong Ding Dang Dong Dong. . .” was quite a rage with the kids. In the absence of any other good (great??) ideas, I was kind of leaning towards this option. But then I recanted and wrote back to Atul ji, and I would not want to do this song for this post for two reasons. The first being that looking at a number like  ‘12345’, the most simplistic thing we could think of is “Ek Do Teen. . .”, and so selecting this song for the milestone post does not sound too convincing. And the second reason that wrote to him that this song is seemingly so special that I would rather save it for the ‘12345678910111213th ’ post on our blog. Hmmm.. . that would translate to, well, ‘बारह पद्म, चौंतीस नील, छप्पन खरब, अट्ठत्तर अरब, इक्यानवे करोड़, एक लाख, ग्यारह हज़ार दो सौ तेरहवां’ song on our blog. Goodness, I don’t think there are going to be that many songs in Hindi films, even if we add all the NFS songs to the mix. But friends, what a thought – gives us all a wonderful reason to live for a very very very long time🙂🙂.

So, with this ‘ab initio’ option out of the way, then we started looking for the next best drum roll. Now we started to focus on getting to a combination of artists who are close to century marks in their respective counts. Meaning, we started looking for combinations where one artist would be at 100, another artist at 200, a third artist at 300 and so on. Goodness, I and Atul ji spent a few sleepless night, poring through the stat pages, as well as our personal compilations of blog songs, that would help to bring in the actor stats also. We got to some imperfect combinations, but frustratingly, for those combinations shortlisted, were not able to find the one song that would bring together the identified artists. After some sleepless nights, we decided this path would lead us nowhere.

Then I had a brainwave. I wrote to Atul ji that let us celebrate this milestone as a set of 5 songs. These would be the posts 12341 to 12345. Each one of the songs in these posts would progressively have something special relating to the numbers 1, 2, 3 and so on. Each song would celebrate something about an artist or a movie, related it to the numbers 1 thru 5. We could do 5 artists who are not yet on the blog; and present one each of their really rare performances. Alternatively, we could do  5 artists who are on the blog; but to post extremely unheard, unknown songs of these artists. One more thought that we considered was artists with post no. 1, 12, 123, 1234 and so on. This seemed promising, but we could not locate enough collateral for this. ‘1’ and ’12’ was easy, but the nearest to 123 was still eight posts behind. And no one even reasonably close to 1234. And then in desperation, I suggested that we shall do five songs with artists for whom it would be the 1st post, the 2nd post, the 3rd post, and so on. Of course, after putting it on paper, even this idea appeared very flimsy and simplistic. And so after a couple of back and forth iterations, Atul ji responded half heartedly, in a manner that jammed this brainwave in its infancy, saying that milestone is a milestone; can’t have it spread over five posts.

We continued to bandy more ideas back and forth. I did some analysis of the posts at numbers 1, 12, 123, 1234, hoping to find some interesting pattern that could be extrapolated to the 12345th post. I was driven by my experience with the 11111th post. Regulars would remember the discovery that I had made. The four singers that are featured in our 11111th post, all individually figure solo in the post nos. 1 (Rafi Sb), 11 (Kishore Kumar), 111 (Mukesh) and the 1111 (Lata Mageshkar). No such luck this time around. I dug in and went on to explore other such combinations. I tried all kind of zany combinations – post nos. 12, 23, 34, 45, post nos. 123, 234, 345, post nos. 1234 and 2345. It was not leading anywhere. I was panicking now.

Then Atul ji suggested a variation. He said let us check for song categories instead of artists, and try to build combinations of occurrences of songs in a category. Once again, we made a dive into our stat sheets and excel files. And yet once again, the prize combination eluded us. And here I was thinking, that I had responded to Mahesh ji that Atul ji and I are seized of this eventuality, but we are not likely going to have something to show for it. The proverbial ‘pudding’ will just not be there for ‘eating’, so what to prove about it.

Atul ji seemingly gave up. He sent me a message saying that Rafi Sb is close to his 26th century mark, and the number of songs in the year 1957 is standing at 399. So let us just select a good song by Rafi Sb from the year 1957 and be done with the milestone. He then followed it up with a short list of possible candidates, as his suggestion for this idea. I was quite bankrupt myself, in my ideas account by this time, and was getting inclined to go with his suggestion. However, I continued to have this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that we are letting pass a significant event, and do not have anything to show for it. Going by the song of Rafi Sb from 1957, would in no way link the song to the peculiarity of the post number. That would be quite a memorable post – we would celebrate a milestone without really celebrating the milestone.

Then, in the depths of such despairing thoughts, there came another flash of an idea. Atul ji had set 21st as the target to publish this post, and we were already behind the schedule. And in the midst of this came this flash. I shared this with Atul ji, and he too became excited about it. I asked for some more time (sic) to do the research, but I had this feeling that the idea would work. What finally transpired, i.e. this song, actually goes beyond even my own expectations with this idea as it first came to me.

So the idea came as I was poring over pages of Geet Kosh trying to strike something for this post. It suddenly dawned on me – well there are songs which are solo, duets or trios. There are music directors that are duo, and even trio. So how about pulling together a combination that would bring together a solo, a duo and a trio. I sent this idea to Atul ji, and then started another long search, through the Geet Kosh listings this time, to search for movies of duo music directors and trio music directors. After some time of searching through the S-Js and L-Ps and Suresh-Talwars, I finally was able to locate songs compliant to this idea, for music directors Sonik-Omi and Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Atul ji reminded me again to look for Rafi Sb song, so that we can bring up his 2600th song on our blog. I was able to locate one song each with both these music director teams, that has Rafi Sb singing, and also complying with the 1..2..3..4 structure of the post no. We were close, but at this point, I did not realize how close we really were.

The two songs I selected – one is a duet in the voice of Rafi Sb and Kamal Barot from the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’. Music is by Lala-Asar-Sattaar and lyrics by Madhukar Rajasthani. So I am able to get 3 of the 5 conditions met – One Lyricist, Two Singers, and Three Music Directors. The second song is from the 1976 film ‘Yaari Zindabad’, with music by Sonik Omi. This song, which makes it to the podium today, is sung by 3 singers – Rafi Sb, Manna Dey and Minu Purushottam. So once again, 3 conditions met – One Lyricist (MG Hashmat), Two Music Directors and Three Singers. So I now had a choice to make. I went in and listened to these songs carefully, and something about the ‘Yaari Zindabad’ song struck a chord within (I will come to it little later in write up), and I decided to go with this one. And friends, this was the providence helping me make the choice, for till that time, I was not aware what more good luck was in store for me.

As I checked the YouTube, I could not locate this full song as a standalone video clip. Either just the audio was available, which does not carry the voice of Minu Purushottam. The LP/EP version of this song does not contain the antaraa with her voice. Or the video was either not complete, or was available only inside a complete selection of the songs of this film. So I decided to make a new video clip for this song, from the film on the disc. And in making and editing this clip, I made two wonderful discoveries, that completed the run for all the numbers. That surely is providence working for us.🙂🙂

I discovered that on screen, 4 actors are lip syncing the voices of playback singers. AND. This song appears in 5 parts in the film. And voila – I had the complete set of 12345 done and packaged for publishing. So here is the rundown of numbers.

One – Lyricist

 

MG Hashmat

 

Two – Music Directors

 

Sonik – Omi

 

Three – Singers

 

Rafi Sb, Manna Dey, Minu Purushottam

 

Four – Actors Lip Syncing on Screen

 

Kiran Kumar – Rafi Sb
Mahendra Sandhu – Manna Dey
Joginder – Rafi Sb
Actress (green sari) – Minu Purushottam
(either Lata Sinha or Sadhna Khote)

 

Five No. of times this multi part song appears in the film

 

I simply could not believe myself, how these numbers finally rolled together. And ‘sonay pe suhaaga’ – the 2600th song of Rafi Sb on the blog. I could not have done any better, and in fact, I could not have done even this without the providence stepping in.

And that, my friends, is the story of ‘12345’.🙂

Now, coming to the emotional connect with this song. I have written about this before, in some of my earlier writings also. The songs about friendship, move me. There is a premise of synthesis, when two minds, two beings come together in understanding and camaraderie. It is this synthesis, this convergence of emotions that means the world to me. Such emotions have the power to move me to tears. This song, it brings in this feeling so strongly, that I had no second thoughts about picking this as the song for today.

In this song, this emotional thread of amity and alliance works through at two levels. One is a very personal level, wherein one being connects with and interacts with another being. Most times, there is no specific reason that can be attributed to this attraction. It simply is. We call it by many names – resonance, frequency matching, meeting of minds, etc. But what it specifically is, is hard to put into words. In friendship, we learn that we share the joys, as well as we share the sorrows. We learn that we like to care, we learn that we like to help, we learn to support, and we learn to share the burdens when travelling together. We learn of companionship, and we learn about togetherness. And I always like to share my feelings about this personal liking, sharing and togetherness, especially with reference to our musical bandwagon. As I was listening to this song and seeing the visuals, some of the words and some of the deeds struck that chord within that connects with the love of music, and the togetherness that is shared within our circle. And I am moved. And when that happens, I want to share this emotion with all.

kabhi tootegi na yaari
yaari zindabad

And then, there is one more level of this sharing and togetherness that moves my heart with an equal compulsion. This is the level of the community, and the social fabric that we all are a part of. Many events of the recent past, and even of longer memories, bring an anguish to the heart, as to how the vested political interests exploit the naturally occurring variations in the society, to sow seeds of differentiation, and pit a brother against his own brother. Be it the unrest in the Kashmir valley, or the maltreatment of one human being by another, simply based on the social standings within the society; be it the exploitation and depravement of the people in their natural habitation or be it simply the manipulative abuse and physical violation of personal propriety on account of religion or caste or gender. This widespread malaise, is a frightening agony for the mind, as one continues to hear about such events and incidents, day in and day out. None of this happens spontaneously. All of it is motivated and orchestrated, by vested interests who desire to have limitless power over other human beings. It is a mindless obsession that eventually results only in suffering, even for the perpetrators. But who would want to put their minds to this thought.

The problem of the social divide in our society, based on religion and caste, is the worst legacy from the days of oppression by the British rule, that we have refused to give up, even at the cost of substantially destroying the social fabric and the normal tolerant existence, that is the bulwark of this land. Maybe it is a utopian expectation, but my heart continues to want to believe in the innate goodness of a human being – the goodness that would deter any person to inflict any grief or injury upon another human being, simply based on the reasons of variation and differences between human beings. It is the law of nature that no two beings, no two minds are created alike. And in addition, every mind is also instilled with the intelligence to appreciate and respect these differences. It is a long and futile debate to deliberate why and how this intelligence gets suppressed and the wilder instincts of greed and power take over and prevail. The end result of this conflict is only misery, and more misery.

On such an unsightful canvas, when one encounters a streak of even just the words, as are contained within this song, there is a moment of relief that descends upon the troubled mind. It is just a poet’s vision, just a hopeful aspiration, saying how this world should be, as opposed to how this world is, as we actually see and perceive it. And the heart is elated, just to know that there is / are other such minds that crave for this amiable tolerance and understanding, to overcome the mindless divisive rage that is cutting through the fabric of our society. That is the relief that moves my heart to tears, when one encounters expressions such as the one in this song

ek hindu ek musalmaan hai
gaadi ke hain do pahiye

And the heart cries for hope, hope for amity, and hope for a friendly brotherly love that I want to share with all.

Yes, glory be to friendship, glory be to peace and love.

Yaari Zindabad.

Missing Films of 1960s – 26
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There is a lot of discussion, heated debate, controversy etc. etc. on plagiarism. Given that the entire structure of the music world is founded on simply seven basic notes. Yes, we go on to sub notes and compound notes, and then ragas (combination of notes). But to the uninitiated, and untrained in classical music (like myself), it seems well nigh impossible that one can continue to keep on creating new songs and do not repeat a melody. Every day, hundreds, maybe thousands of new songs are born. It is really an amazing wonder that we do not find many more replications, than we already do.

Missing Films of 1960s – 25
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Back again, with another un-represented film from 1960s. The film being introduced today is ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’ from 1963. Obscure and unknown, nothing much is known about this film. Here are the details available in the Geet Kosh.

This film is listed as a fantasy film, produced under the banner of Shankar Movies. It is directed by Harbans. The film is actually a Dara Singh – Nishi starrer. The cast of actors besides the lead pair mentioned, includes Tiwari, Heeralal, Helen, Maruti, Naazi and Ram Singh. But it is strange that a Dara Singh film from 1960s is obscure. Generally, his movies are almost all available, apparently except for this one. Thankfully, the music is.

‘प’

“पढ़े लिखे कुछ खास नहीं पर नाम है मिस्टर वाई”

This song has been waiting in the wings, since the day I posted “Thandi Thandi Hawaa Mujhe Chhede Yahaan”, as part of the ‘Missing Films of 1960s’ series. At first I had shortlisted this Rafi Sb’s song for that post. But then on second thoughts, I changed it and saved this song for the Rafi Sb series. Good choice, I think. This song fits in well on the ‘प’ letter position.

‘न’

“नादान ना बन ए मतवाले”

There are quite a few songs by Rafi Sb, starting with the alphabet ‘न’, and which are still to be posted. As I was in the process to shortlist the song for today’s alphabet, I came across this unfamiliar song from the film ‘Rangeela’ from 1953. The thing that struck me was the title line “Naadaan Na Ban Ae Matwaale”. The first thought that came to my mind – that this is a sad, philosophical type of song, kind of similar to “Moorakh Hai Insaan” (‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’, 1961) and “Mat Bhool Arre Insaan” (‘Mastaana’, 1954). Not really inclined for a poignant song today, I skipped this, and moved ahead in the list. But on second thought; do not know what prompted me to come back to this song, and I decided to listen to it. And I am surprised – this turns out to be actually a fun song, on the topic of eve teasing. And I knew I had my selection for today’s post.🙂

The saga starts in 1947. It is the runaway hit “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon Dil e Beqraar Ka” (film ‘Dard’). Not many artists can lay claim to such a meteoric debut. And also, not many can pride themselves with unbroken partnerships and associations with other artists, that have lasted for an entire lifetime.

‘ध’

“धीरे चल ज़रा, ओ पागल पुरवइय्या”

Vintage Rafi – that was my reaction on hearing this song, actually for the first time yesterday. And then I checked the other details, and find, this song is likely one the few very last songs that Rafi Sb would have recorded. This song comes from the 1980 vigilantes-and-robbers type story – ‘Hum Paanch’. As I chanced upon this song and started to play, my first feeling was – 1960s, or thereabouts.  The sedate rhythm and the soft rendition, gives that charmed old world feeling of the golden era. Just that the picturization visual in the video clip gives one the clue that this song is much later than 1960s.

I could not have missed the next episode in the Hindi alphabet series on Rafi Sb today. And it is by good luck that I am able to locate a song that adds one more anniversary together, and quite appropriately so.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.
