Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

In our astrological scheme, there is a concept of ‘bhadra’, which is invoked on the basis of a combination of certain ‘nakshatras‘ (stellar entities). ‘Bhadra’ is a short period of time for which certain conjunctions of certain stellar entities exist. Although lasting for short spells – few minutes to few hours, ‘bhadra’ has a significance. These short interludes are designated as inauspicious in our system of calculations. As a result, the pundits and astrologers will advise against conducting or initiating any auspicious activity during the time passage of ‘bhadra’. Incidentally, as per astrological calculations, the ‘bhadra’ time period overlaps with the full moon day today, for some time. The effect of ‘bhadra’ conjunction is(was) active till about 11 am today morning. So as per announcements at the temples, on the religious channels, and as advised by knowledgeable elders, the festival celebration of Raakhi today was advised to be initiated only after 11 am.

Then, there is another important astrological event that occurs today. Later tonight, we shall also witness a lunar eclipse. Again, as per calculations for the Indian subcontinent, the lunar eclipse with start at 10:53 pm tonight.  It will last for a duration of little less than two hours, and will end at 00:48 am tomorrow (8th Aug).
[Note: All times indicated above are according to Indian Standard Time.]

In case you wonder, why is one concerned about the lunar eclipse that is anyway going to start so late in the night, there are some reasons. Although the specific time and duration of the actual eclipse is of a certain length, the total duration of the conjunction of the heavenly bodies involved in the eclipse is much longer than just the visible eclipse. In this case, the heavenly bodies involved are the sun, the moon and the earth. The lunar eclipse is effected when the sun, moon and earth are so aligned that the earth is positioned directly in between the sun and the moon, and the shadow of the earth falls on the moon, making it look partially or fully dark; the duration and coverage of course varies depending on where you are placed for viewing, in terms of longitude location.

Folks may recall their geography lessons from the school days, and remember the concept of umbra and penumbra. As an opaque object passes in front of a source of light, it first creates an area of partial darkness (also called the shadow of darkness or shadow of eclipse). This is called the penumbra. Then when the object fully occludes the light coming from the source, we get an area of total darkness, which is the actual eclipse itself. This is called the umbra. As the object continues to move in front of the light source, the umbra once again transforms into penumbra, and we get a second area of partial darkness, after the eclipse is over. Hence the total duration of the two sets of partial darkness periods and one total darkness period, is actually much more than the duration of the visible eclipse (the umbra) only. Given the relative positions and distances of the three moving bodies, the duration of each penumbra could be anywhere from 7 to 9 hours. And so the conjunction of the three heavenly bodies that creates the eclipse effect, actually will last for almost 20 hours.

And the impact of that on our celebrations? Well, once again, as per our astrological definitions, the duration of this ‘shadow of the eclipse’ is also considered to be inauspicious, and hence the advise to refrain from conducting or initiating any auspicious activity. For those who follow these instructions, the lunar eclipse tonight puts in one more restriction on Raakhi celebrations today. Since the penumbra duration can be 8 to 9 hours, then for the given time of eclipse (10:53 pm) we must calculate back by subtracting this time. We arrive at a time of approximately 2 pm as the outer limit of this window. Given these calculations and guidance, the auspicious time for Raakhi today is(was) limited to a window from 11 am to 2 pm.

Anyway, that is just for the information buffs, who need to know the details of why. . .?? 🙂

Coming to the posts for today. Atul ji has posted one song earlier today morning, in which he has given some background of the previous Raakhi celebration days that we have had on our blog. In that background, he has mentioned that overall 22 songs have been posted on our blog, over the past 9 cycles of this festival, from 2008 onwards. As I read this statement, I was a little uncertain about this number, thinking that Atul ji is probably underestimating the count. Nine years at 22 songs computes to a little over two songs on average per festival. I had a feeling there have to be more.

So I started to check, picking out the dates for the Raakhi day each year, and then checking on the blog for the songs on that day. My hunch was correct. We have much more, in fact we have 32 Raakhi songs posted on our blog, and the number now is 34, considering the two songs posted today. The count of songs by year, as per the song lists we maintain, is given as below.

So, over the past nine years, we have 32 songs posted for Raakhi. Maybe 3 or 4 of these songs are not pure bred Raakhi songs – they are songs about brother-sister love, but they have been posted on Raakhi days, in conjunction with the festival.

Way back in 2010, when we were on our third Raakhi celebration, the blog till then, contained only two Raakhi songs (one each posted in 2009 and 2010). Starting the first post for that day (24th Aug, 2010), Atul ji writes,

This is the third Raakhi for this blog. […]

This time I wanted to post more “Raakhi” songs but then I thought that there were very few “Raakhi” songs created in Hindi movies and I wondered if I would be able to post about six “Raakhi” songs. I was delighted to find that I was in fact able to find more than six “Raakhi” songs. So I find myself being able to post my daily quota of six songs on this Raakhi day.

That day, in fact he did post 6 songs of the festival and of brother-sister love. He mentions that he is afraid not too many songs have been created for this festival. Then in 2011, we go ahead and post 5 more songs. In 2012, the count goes up to 7 Raakhi songs posted, all in one day. Atul ji is like a millionaire – many more to come :D:D. (Personally I would have been a spendthrift, trying to save some for future such events. 😉 ).

Then in 2013, the count comes down to 5 (posted across two dates 20th and 21st Aug). In 2014 we are down to 3, then 2 in 2015 and, goodness, just one in 2016. Looks like we are running out of these celebration songs. But wait, we have two posted this year, and our dear Prakash ji has identified a few more from the later decades, that we shall probably be holding on to for next year and later. 🙂

But seriously, I believe there is still some more songs that have to be traced. Reason being, well, none of us has heard all the songs of all the films. Another factor – sometimes we can guess the song’s theme by the words in the song title. Yet, there are so many songs where the title does not easily reveal itself to be of a particular theme. So then, even screening the list contained in the Geet Kosh is only helpful to an extent. Sometimes when I am doing a search, I will try to scan the lists and look for the word ‘राखी’. Most such songs are posted. Then the next two words I would search in the song index are ‘बहना’ and ‘भैया’. These two scanning efforts have turned up some more songs that are meant for today’s celebration.

Case in point is today’s song. The mukhda starts with ‘थईय्या ता ता थईय्या’ (‘thaiya ta ta thaiya’). A speedily glancing eye will just skip over this mukhda and move on. My attention was caught by the last word in the second part of the mukhda ‘जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया’ (‘jug jug jiye mera bhaiya’). And I decided to investigate. I had not heard this song before, although I have the recordings of all songs of this film (‘Sher Khan’ – 1962) in my collection. I pulled out the song and played it. It was like hitting gold in the first trial. Turns out to very much be a Raakhi song, and coming from an obscure film, and that too quite unexpectedly.

I have this film also (it is also available online). So I pulled the film and edited out the song for uploading, because the song itself is not available online yet.

‘Sher Khan’ is a stunt cum social film, about inter tribal rivalry that involves Pathan and Rajput clans. Produced under the banner of Mukul Movies, it is directed by Radhakant. The lead pair is Kumkum and Kanwaljeet. Other members of the cast include Veena, Jayant, Ulhas, Tabassum, Hiralal, Sunder, Majnu, Madhumati, WM Khan, Jeevankala, Surekha, Samson, Rana, Amir, Prem, Shafi Muhammad, Jagdish Bhalla and others. There are six songs in this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. And the music is by SN Tripathi. One song of this film is already posted on our blog. I just played all the songs and heard them – goodness, this obscure and unknown film is a gold mine of forgotten gems. Such lovely songs that were once in the hearing, have now been forgotten.

This song is a combination of a happiness and sadness. It is celebration time, and the ladies are singing a song of auspicious blessings. Meena (role played by a very young Tabassum), the daughter of Thakur Ranjeet Singh (role played by Ulhas). Sher Khan (role played by Kamaljeet) is a brave Pathan who strikes friendship with Thakur Ranjeet Singh, and treats Meena as his sister. The story is little more complicated than that, of course. It is the day of Raakhi, and Meena is waiting for Sher Khan to come for the tying of the Raakhi thread. Sher Khan has been waylaid; he fights off his attackers, gets to a doorway to get a drink of water. He discovers that it is the day of Raakhi, and then he quickly rides back to the home of Thakur Ranjeet Singh. Menawhile, Meena is singing the sad lines of the celebration song. But by the time the song ends, Sher Khan is standing in front of her, and the Raakhi is tied.

One query for the more knowledgeable readers – the lady who is leading the dance, and singing the happy portions of the song – is that Jeevankala? I request for help with identification.
NOTE: Prakash ji has checked and confirmed that the lead dancer is Madhumati. Also, one of the accompanying dancers is Shirley. Thanks Prakash ji.

This is a lovely lilting song, that soon gets into the humming domain in the mind. Once again, greetings and congratulations to all readers and friends, for today’s celebrations.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1
——————————————————————–

On this blog, one thing we enjoy is, celebrations.  🙂

We are always looking for an opportunity to celebrate – and every other day, we get a reason to do so. Often it is somebody’s birthday or birth anniversary, or a milestone of a 100th or 1000th song for an artiste, or for the blog. And even if it is a death anniversary, which is not really a cause for celebration, we use the occasion to pay tribute to the concerned artiste. Many of my own posts fall in this category. An occasion gives me an opportunity to reminisce and share my thoughts.

‘Pyaar Ka Bandhan’ (1963) has a total of seven songs (including one multiple version song). Out of these seven songs five songs have already been posted on the blog.

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).

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 24
———————————————————

MEENA (1944) appears to be an obscure movie at least to me as I had never heard nor came across the name of this film until I found a multiple version song from the film a few days back. The film was produced under the banner of Bharat Pictures and was directed by Phani Majumdar. The star cast included Hansa Wadkar, Vasanti, Master Shashi Kapoor (Sr.), Dixit, Gulab, Ratan Piya, Anand etc. There were 7 songs (including a multiple version) in the film, all penned by Pandit Phani which were set to music by Hari Prasanna Das.

This is one more duet by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle from the film ‘Kaise Kahoon’. The music for this film is composed by S D Burman and lyricist is Shakeel Badayuni. These two have worked together in very few films. I know of only two i.e ‘Benazir’ and this film, both released in the year 1964.

I am going down memory lane, to my school days. We would come back from school at 3:30 p.m. and at that time Vividh Bharati would be silent till 5:30 p.m. So we would put on the radio and searching for songs, invariably we found All India Radio (Urdu service) where they broadcast the programme “aap ki farmaish” which continued till 5 o’clock.
