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.

‘Veer Chhatrasaal-1971’ was directed by Harsukh Bhatt for Shree Ganesh Films, Bombay. As the ‘title’ suggests this film was a ‘Historical’ genre film and based on the life of the Great Warrior of Bundela Maharaj Chhatrasaal (4 May-1649 – 20 December 1731) who established his own kingdom ‘Bundelkhand’.

She was 74 years when she passed away in 2004. And by then, she had spent the last four decades of her life in a self imposed seclusion. The separation from the public domain was so complete that many took her to have already departed from this world. When the tidings of her demise came, many were surprised.

Remembering Suraiya on the day of her passing away (31st January).

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.

The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

If this voice sounds familiar, that is because we have heard him before on this blog.  The earlier posted song is also a delightful rendition – “Bhar Bhar Ke Jaam Pilaa De Bahaar Aayi” from the film ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936).  The singer is Basheer Ahmed Khan, also known as Basheer Qawwaal.  This song today is from a very obscure and almost unheard film from 1937 – ‘His Highness’.  As I am browsing the songs from 1930s in my collection, I am finding excellent gems that have been unheard of for decades.  Wonderful pieces of music that are excellent compositions of excellent verses.  The obscurity can be gauged from the fact that almost no information is available about the film, or the artists that have contributed to create this, and other such obscure and rare gems.
