Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“रहोगे कब तक हमसे दूर

ishq pukaarega tumko aana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re

Goodness, more than four months now that the previous episode in this series was posted (29th Sep, 2016). Not a record, I must say. There are some other series (by me) (sic) in progress that have been waiting much much longer to be completed. But then, this scenario makes me marvel more and more on how Atul ji is able to pull the progression of this bandwagon, single handedly, day after day after day. I have been excusing myself on account of too much time pressure on my personal side of life. And  then I think, well, my situation is not very unique, and I am sure that there are similar constraints that are present in the lives of everyone else. And thus, I tip my hat to Atul ji, for his tenacity and perseverance. On his shoulders, the bandwagon rolls on and on. . .

Rafi Sb, the inimitable, the incomparable, the unforgettable, the voice for all seasons. And for all reasons. We have discussed often, in earlier writings by more than one contributors, the breadth and the depth of emotional varieties that have been rendered by this exceptional artist. I believe in the uniqueness of quality that is experienced listening to the diversity of flavors and the range of acoustics that this voice has spanned.

So I am verily taken aback when I read in papers about the mini controversy raised by a flippant, reckless remark in the recent film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ (2016). The comment, of course, cannot be attributed to the actress (Anushka Sharma) who speaks it on screen, for she is just following what the dialogue writer (Karan Johar) penned, and what the director (Karan Johar again) directed her to say. So the problem lies more with the people who conceived this thought and put it into words. The actress herself is somewhat responsible, for she had the prerogative to refuse speaking such words on screen. It is not simply lack of respect. The deeper malaise is the lack of understanding – neither understanding the qualities of this voice and the artist, nor understanding what is the impact of such thoughtless remarks, transmitted through a medium as powerful as cinema. It shows all in very poor light – the director, the dialogue writer and the actor, on the sheer lack of understanding and respect for their own roots, and the heritage of their own industry.

There is a funny irony in this situation that brings a smile to my lips. Look at the title of the film. It is taken from one of the iconic, and most popular songs of Rafi Sb – “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Jeena Yahaan” (‘C.I.D.’ – 1956). Just this one song sample itself belies the flippant remark on screen – “wo [Rafi Sb] gaate kam, rotey zyaada the”. Then, why my dear writer-director did you choose the song of the same artist to be the title of your film. And that too, a song that is one the best pickpocket-fun songs, a song that linked forever, the voice of Rafi Sb with the antics of Johnny Walker, the comedian extraordinaire. Quite in poor taste, I must say.

Coming to today’s song. After a gap, I bring on another obscure song from an equally obscure film from the mid 1960s. A song that I discovered while making the journey through the missing films and songs of 1960s. The film is ‘Wohi Ladki’ from 1967. The words are from the pen of Prahlad Sharma. The name of this lyricist is quite rare in Geet Kosh listings. As I surveyed the Geet Kosh, I find this name appear as lyricists for just 5 films, in the 1960s and 70s – ‘Vidyapati’ (1964), ‘Wohi Ladki’ (1967), ‘Pyaar’ (1969), ‘Prem Ki Ganga’ (1971) and ‘Jai Baba Baidyanath’ (1979). And very interestingly, four of these films are with the same music director – V Balsara. The fifth film, ‘Prem Ki Ganga’ is with music director Chitragupt. And then we hear no more about this poet. The additional bit of interesting information is that Prahlad Sharma is also the producer and director of the five films mentioned above.

Listen to this another delightful ‘joie de vivre’ songs in the voice of Rafi Sb, a light hearted song calling to the beloved – “aana hi hoga re. . .”.

Song – Rahoge Kab Tak Hum Se Door (Wohi Ladki) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Prahlad Sharma, MD – V Balsara

Lyrics

rahoge kab tak hum se door
pyaar ka to aisa dastoor
ishq pukaarega tumko aana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
ishq pukaarega tumko aana hi hoga re e e e e

dilon ke saagar mein toofaan
bani hai ganga kyon anjaan
piya ki baahon mein aa kar
lipat jaati na kyon nadaan
dilon ke saagar mein toofaan
bani hai ganga kyon anjaan
piya ki baahon mein aa kar
lipat jaati na kyon nadaan
kaun karta tujh ko majboor
karo thokar se us ko choor
kaun karta tujh ko majboor
karo thokar se us ko choor
haamaara janam janam ka pyaar
galey lagna hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
ishq pukaarega tumko aana hi hoga re

uthegi yahaan kaleje pir
chalenge wahaan hazaaron teer
kheench kar daudi aayegi
kisi ranjha se milne heer
oy hoye
uthegi yahaan kaleje pir
chalenge wahaan hazaaron teer
kheench kar daudi aayegi
kisi ranjha se milne heer
tod kar rasmon ki deewaar
chalo chal den donon us paar
tod kar rasmon ki deewaar
chalo chal den donon us paar
farishte hamen bulaate hain
saath jaana hi hoga re
aana hi hoga re
jaana hi hoga re
ishq pukaarega tumko aana hi hoga re

रहोगे के कब तक हमसे दूर
प्यार का तो ऐसा दस्तूर
इश्क़ पुकारेगा तुमको आना ही होगा रे
आना ही होगा रे
आना ही होगा रे
इश्क़ पुकारेगा तुमको आना ही होगा रे ए ए ए ए

दिलों के सागर में तूफान
बनी है गंगा क्यों अञ्जान
पिया की बाहों में आकर
लिपट जाती ना क्यों नादान
दिलों के सागर में तूफान
बनी है गंगा क्यों अञ्जान
पिया की बाहों में आकर
लिपट जाती ना क्यों नादान
कौन करता तुझको मजबूर
करो ठोकर से उसको चूर
कौन करता तुझको मजबूर
करो ठोकर से उसको चूर
हमारा जनम जनम का प्यार
गले लगना ही होगा रे
आना ही होगा रे
आना ही होगा रे
इश्क़ पुकारेगा तुमको आना ही होगा रे

उठेगी यहाँ कलेजे पीर
चलेंगे वहाँ हजारों तीर
खींच कर दौड़ी आएगी
किसी रांझा से मिलने हीर
ओय होए
उठेगी यहाँ कलेजे पीर
चलेंगे वहाँ हजारों तीर
खींच कर दौड़ी आएगी
किसी रांझा से मिलने हीर
तोड़ कर रस्मों की दीवार
चलो चल दें दोनों उस पार
तोड़ कर रस्मों की दीवार
चलो चल दें दोनों उस पार
फरिश्ते हमें बुलाते हैं
साथ जाना ही होगा रे
आना ही होगा रे
जाना ही होगा रे
इश्क़ पुकारेगा तुमको आना ही होगा रे

I joined the Blog sometime in July 2011 and I have completed 5 years of my association with the Blog. How the wheel of time passes so quickly!  Atul ji, the founder of this Blog, must have also felt the same when he realised that this Blog would be completing its 3000th day today (4th October 2016).

Congratulations to Atul ji and his bandwagon for reaching another milestone of running this Blog for 3000 days. I had said in my couple of earlier write-ups as well as in the comments section in the Blog that it is not an easy task to run a Blog with a commitment to discuss at least one song per day.  It is most gratifying to note during my 5 years of association with the Blog that Atul ji has almost adhered to that commitment. If one goes by the daily average of the postings of the songs, the Blog has attained over 4 songs per day.  This is a unique Blog in the sense that it has not remained ‘dormant’ even for a day!

“Heera Moti”(1959) was based on Munshi Premchand’s story “Do Bailon Ki Katha”. This is a story of two bullocks owned by a poor farmer couple.

The story is told from the point of view of the bullocks.

The movie was produced by Pravin Desai and directed by Krishan Chopra for Rupalaya production. The movie had Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Baby Naaz,Helen, Cuckoo, Ashim Kumar, Shubha Khote, P.Kailash, Rashid Khan, Baij Sharma, Moolchand, Charubala, Bhola etc in it.

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.

एक दोस्त मिला आज, बहुत सारे सालों के बाद।

Yes, years and years have passed since we last met. And today, while searching for someone else, I located the one I had probably met once or maybe twice, and then never met again for decades. But the memories of that earlier meeting are so very sharp and very clear. And the lilt of its sound still rings in the backdrop of the mind, very often.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘घ’
“घर से तो कट चुका पत्ता”

As I search for songs of Rafi Sb, I continue to find unheard and obscure gems, that make one wonder – where have these songs been hiding so far. And more importantly, continue to marvel more and more at the versatility of Rafi Sb’s voice and the depth of his emotional connect with the intent of the song. When I picked out this song and heard it, the one word that flashed in my mind was ‘free spirit’. This song is meant to be a freewheeling song of a wanderer, who has no roots. As the song progresses, the mind catches the attention of the feeling of lightness one experiences, as the sounds of Rafi Sb’s voice sink into the mind. The sound is coming almost as if from the skies, light as the wind. It carries a plucky feeling of a carefree heart that is joyous in its rootlessness. I am so enchanted by the emotional expression in this song that today I actually went ahead and created a new category – ‘Free Spirit Song’.

Two days ago, Suman ji completed the 79th milestone of her melodic life. It is so hard to believe that she is now so senior in years. Some months back, maybe almost a year, she was in Delhi and was present on stage for a singing performance. Unfortunately I myself was not able to make it. But other friends who had attended had said that she continues to be as impressive in her voice, as she was before. Still as sweet, and ‘sureeli’ as Bharat ji would put it.

‘अ’

Celebrating another year without Rafi Sb, celebrating another anniversary of this peerless artist. And more than anything else, celebrating another year of endless memories and ruminations.  God does not duplicate, they say. And so, for us listeners, memories is all that is there to live by.

Missing Films of 1960s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As we are moving into the 1960s, exploring for the films that are yet to be showcased on our blog, I have already introduced 4 films from 1961 and then I had moved into 1962, adding 2 films for that year.  But with today’s post, I revert back to 1961. Clearly, there is one more film from 1961 that I missed. The film is ‘Zamaana Badal Gaya’. Its songs are available, and had not yet been introduced here.  An oversight on my part.
