Blog Day :

4018 Post No. : 15129

It is the 8th year of my association with our Blog. I do not remember the date but it was in the month of July 2011 when I found this musical  Blog. I began my formal association with the Blog by posting my first comment sometime in the last week of July 2011. It was much later  I came to know that the Blog had then just completed its third birth anniversary.

Congratulation to Atul ji and his bandwagon for completing today the 11th year of the Blog. Over a period of time, our Blog has transformed into a cooperative movement to propagate Hindi film and non-film music especially of the vintage and the golden periods.

My interest in Hindi film music began during the early days of Binaca Geet Mala which used to be broadcast on Radio Ceylon every Wednesday. But it was during the late 1960s that I developed interest in the nitty gritty of Hindi film songs. I became the collector of 78 rpm gramophone records of popular as well as the then rare songs mostly of films released during 1940s to 1960s. However, by 1972-73, I had become disillusioned with my hobby for number of reasons, the main reason being the undesirable practices of a few of the record collectors and sellers.

During 1990s to 2000s, I was virtually cut off from the Hindi film music of the golden era as even my record player became irreparable and the India-made new ones were not available. The radio had become almost redundant. During this phase, I used to regularly watch TV programmes on Doordarshan (for Chitrahaar), Channel [V] and MTV. At that time, I started liking Hindi pop songs (Indipop). Those were the days when Hindi pop songs had become very popular to the extent that they were competing with Hindi film songs in terms of sales of the song albums. Among the Hindi pop singers, Alisha Chinoy, Sunita Rao, Sweta Shetty, Phalguni Pathak, Palash Sen, Diler Mehndi, Lucky Ali, Sonu Nigam and many others became very popular. The popularity of Hindi pop songs attracted some of the already well-established artists like Asha Bhonsle, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Shubha Mudgal, AR Rehman, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Javed Akhtar etc. who got associated with Indipop.

After my final retirement from the service in June 2009, I again got interested in Hindi film music. It was during this phase when I came across this Blog and my interest in the Hindi film music was revived. But the most important contribution of the Blog for me was that my hobby of listening Hindi film songs got expanded to cover non-film songs and research in Hindi films and the music. The Blog has become a learning curve for me insofar as Hindi films and non-films music are concerned.

On the occasion of the 11th birth anniversary of our musical Blog, I have chosen one of my favourite indipop songs of the new millennium. The song is ‘Jahaan Ho Pyaar Ka Mausam’ (2002) rendered by the all-girls VIVA Band consisting of Seema Ramchandani, Pratichee Mohapatra, Neha Bhasin, Mahua Kamat and Anushka Manchanda. The song is written by Javed Akhtar which is set to music by Jatin-Lalit.

The song has a very thought provoking mukhda which has a universal appeal:

jahaan ho pyaar ka mausam
jahaan sab dilon ka ho sangam
jahaan meethi ho sab logon ki zubaan
haan
mujhe aise nagar hai jaana
main aisa nagar dhoondh loongi kahin na kahin

 When I heard this song recently after a long gap, it immediately struck me that the mukhda of the song was very apt for our Blog. For me, our Blog is the place where there is an atmosphere of love, union of hearts and minds. And where everyone speaks in a language of respect.

I should give some background about the song under discussion. In 2002, Channel [V] decided to promote pop stars in India. They started the first Indian version of the International Popstars Talent Show in 2002 in which 5 girls got selected. They formed a band named as VIVA. Their first album, VIVA produced by Times Music and Channel [V] was released in June 2002 which had 8 songs, including the song under discussion. All the songs were written by Javed Akhtar but they were  set to music individually by Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, Jatin-Lalit, Sandeep Chowta, Raju Singh, Kersi Lord and Ashtosh-Dhruv. The album received a very good response and in the first year itself, sales of albums crossed 5 lakhs.

VIVA Band got split within two years of its formation despite unprecedented success of its two albums. Probably, the girls in the band could not handle their sudden fame. Later, all of them pursued their solo careers in music and the related fields.

I had watched the video of the song under discussion umpteen times on TV during 2002-03. I always liked it for its meaningful lyrics and comparatively soft musical interludes than some of other Indipops.

For those who had watched the video of the song on TV in early 2000, it will be a nostalgic experience.

बातों में हों घुल गई
सारे गीतों की जैसे नर्मियाँ
आँखों में हो यूं खुशी
मोती भरी हों जैसे सीपीयाँ
जहां गूँजे प्रेम शहनाई
जहां ज़िंदगी ले अंगड़ाई
जहां हर घड़ी खुशी की हो दास्ताँ
जहां गूँजे प्रेम शहनाई

ऐसा हो नगर जहां
चिमनी का धुआँ फैला ना हो
राहों में हवाओं का
आंचल ज़रा मैला ना हो
जहां ठंडे ठंडे हों साये
जहां हौले हौले नींद आए
जहां ख्वाब ख्वाब लगता हो हर समा
जहां ठंडे ठंडे हों साये
जहां हौले हौले नींद आए
जहां ख्वाब ख्वाब लगता हो हर समा
हाँ
मुझे ऐसे नगर है जाना
मैं ऐसा नगर ढूंढ लूँगी

Blog Day : 3479 Post No. : 13977

Republic day is a holiday that nearly everyone looks forward to in this country.

As a kid I would hate the day, though. We would have to get ready even earlier than usual, find our way to school for the ‘jhanda vandan’ – flag hoisting ceremony. I would usually be both in the marchpast and the patriotic dance. So, I would have to do a sneak off as soon as the flag is hoisted and get in costume for a badly choreographed patriot dance which had more in common with the actions that accompany a nursery rhyme.

I would then head back home where the society ‘jhanda vandan‘ would be over already and there would be poha for breakfast. My friends and I would chill together and then head home once our parents have finally gone hoarse from calling out to us for lunch. Then of course it would be the ol’e hearty meal and hearty sleep routine.

These days I love the day like the rest of the adult population. Which to be honest is mostly because it’s an off for nearly everyone and most people get to sleep in on a weekday. Except maybe liquor store owners and alcoholics. It is a difficult day for them indeed.

I know I sound cynical, but the way our country is right now, we manage to find our inner patriotism and urge to display our constitutional values only twice a year. We find it in ourselves to be socialist, liberal, proud of our diversities, and nationalist with a urge to do genuine social good. We talk about ‘swachhta abhiyan‘ over non-biodegradable thermocol cups of tea and foiled paper plates of food and plastic spoons. We have really taken our country for granted in a manner that is unprecedented in history.

The other day at the pre-Republic Day annual get together in my society, the party was ended with a loud cheer for a late communal regional leader of Maharashtra. My friends and I had a really uncomfortable look exchange and we then had a private conversation about how certain views sometimes get expressed in our families that we choose to remain silent out of respect for the elders in question. There was also a general agreement that the current political environment leaves very little space for the youth to be fully socialist liberals and thus we are choosing to be capitalists looking to make our way.

I think it’s high time we decide to be patriots outside the National holidays, cricket stadiums and the auditoriums of sports-based movies. Let us inculcate the values that make our nation move forward.

And meanwhile let me introduce some of you to a patriotic song from a recent sports-based movie, ‘Mary Kom’ (2014).

[Ed Note: With this song, the film ‘Mary Kom’ makes its debut on our blog today.]

Song – Jhuke Tere Aage Sar (Mary Kom) (2014) Singers – Vishal Dadlani, Salim Merchant, Lyrics – Sandeep Singh, MD – Shivam
Chorus

Lyrics (Provided by Peevesie’s mom)

jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
india

mushkil waqt mein bhi
hum na khoyen hausla
mil ke  saath chalne ka yoon kar len faisla
mitti hum jo choome to milta josh hai
bas teri hi khaatir jaan ye sarfarosh hai
jeet ka jashan hum manaayenge
aasmaan tiranga sajaana aaj hai
shaan se sabhi ko bataayenge
jeet lenge ye saara jahaan

jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
india aa aaaaaaa
india aa
india

ho abr se iraade hon
koshisho ke waade hon
manzil milegi chaahe raahein hon khafa
aaaaaaaaaa
ho abr se iraade hon
koshisho ke waade hon
manzil milegi chaahe raahein hon khafa
desh ye sikhaata hai
himmatein badhaata hai
thhokar se gir ke na tu rukna be-wajaah
tera ye watan
kar kuch bhi jatan tu
jaan bhi is pe luta de tu
dar ko dara ke raggon mein fateh ka josh jaga
arsh ki udaane lagani hain
in hawaaoon ka rukh badalna aaj hai
desh ye ibbadat humari hai
de tu ye aaj sab ko bataa

jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
jhuke tere aage sar
teri god mera ghar
hai tujhe salaam india
aaaaaa

झुके तेरे आगे सर
तेरी गोद मेरा घर

इंडिया

मुश्किल वक़्त में भी
हम न खोएँ हौसला
मिलके साथ चलने का यूं कर लें फैसला
मिट्टी हम जो चूमें तो मिलता जोश हाओन
बस तेरी ही खातिर ये जां सरफरोश है
जीत का जशन हम मनाएंगे
आसमां तिरंगा सजाना आज है
शान से सभी को बताएँगे
जीत लेंगे ये सारा जहान्

झुके तेरे आगे सर
तेरी गोद मेरा घर
है तुझे सलाम इंडिया

देश ये सिखाता है
हिम्मतें बढ़ाता है
ठोकर से गिरके तू ना रुकना बेवजह
तेरा ये वतन
कर कुछ भी जतन
जां भी इस पे लुटा दे तू
डर को डरा के रगों में फतेह का जोश जागा
अर्श की उड़ाने लगानी हैं
इन हवाओं का रुख बदलना आज है
देश ये इबादत हमारी है
दे तू ये आज सबको बता

झुके तेरे आगे सर
तेरी गोद मेरा घर

Hullo to all in Atuldom

If it is a post by me then it has to be someone’s’ birthday.

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997). I just thought that it will be a lovely departure from routine to showcase the versatility of the forever young-at-heart Asha.
