A century post – and a discovery of monumental proportions. Things cannot get more rare, and better, than this.

We are at a century marker with this post – 13,300 – thirteen thousand three hundred to be exact. Atul ji and I exchanged some thoughts on whether to hold back this important discovery for a bigger, more major milestone up ahead. But then we decided that the wait of some more months will be too much. Let us introduce this discovery at 13,300 itself, and then we will have a few more opportunities to bring on other parts, other songs of this discovery.

‘baalam to pe sabar padey, moraa maikaa chhudaaye deenhon raam’

“O dear sweetheart, you have made me relinquish my mother’s home, hope you are now pleased and satisfied”

More than ‘Gham diye mushtaqil kitna naazuk hai dil (Shahjahan). . .’, and ‘Jab dil hi toot gaya(Shahjahan). . .’, this unfinished song is a much more fitting signature song that suddenly defines the totality of Saigal Saab’s essence of spirit, and sums up his entire life in terms of the most relevant event of human existence – the final departure.

Today’s write up is different from the normal format / content of Saigal Saab’s songs, that we are discussing on this blog. (I am in travel today, and have limited access to resources and time. I shall be back tomorrow.)

We have been discussing one K L Saigal song as the first song of this blog for the last three months, and now we have reached a stage when we have almost exhausted all K L Saigal movie songs to be discussed. Now only the non movie songs (about 20 odd) are yet to be discussed. Within one month, we can expect to have all the available K L Saigal songs to be covered in this blog. And this is something we can really be proud of.

“Kurukshetra” (1945) is one of the lesser known K L Saigal movies, as far as I am concerned. This movie had actors like K L Saigal. Nawab Kashmiri, Shaamlee, Udwwadia, Biman Bannerji, Radha Rani,Ajit,Tara,Agha Mehmood Kashmiri etc. This movie was directed by Rameshwar Sharma.

Out of 110 movie songs sung by K L Saigal , 106 are available and 100 of them have been discussed in this blog. Searching for the 6 remaining songs not yet discussed in like searching for a needle in a haystack. After careful search, it has been revealed that this particular song from “Krorepati”(1936) had so far escaped from being posted. 😀

Typically our readers send us farmaishes of songs and we in this blog struggle to fulfil all these farmaishes. And it is my fond wish that a day will come when the shoe will be on the other foot and our readers will struggle to think of songs as farmaishes. 😀

Saigal Saab acted in 29 Hindi movies during his career of 15 years. Of these, 21 films were produced by New Theatres. In an unbroken association from 1932 to 1941, Saigal Saab appeared in 20 films by this production house in continuity. In 1942, Saigal Saab moved to Bombay, and started to work with the production houses there. Post 1942, there is only one more picture that is produced by New Theatres in which Saigal Saab appeared. This is the 1944 production My Sister. From the unbroken string of 20 films with New Theatres, the last one is Lagan produced in 1941.

Since the time machines started getting invented, and later became an integral part of how the society (or a part of the society) started to use them on a large scale, a certain divide between the rural and urban milieu has also emerged. The debate on this un-ending. The rural system is the caretaker of farms and dairy, and plays the significant role of the provider of food to the entire society. The industrialized and urban system on the other hand, has become the provider of the mechanized solutions and consumer products for the society. Is there a way to determine whether one is more important than the other? Advocates of both sides have argued now for many years, trying to establish the preponderance of one over the other. (IMHO, the farm and agricultural sector is more important, because it is possible to do without many things, rather most things in life, if it comes to that. But one cannot do without food. But that is just my opinion 🙂 ).

Street Singer (1938) is a landmark film, that was a big success in its own time. The film is a trendsetter, and a musical bonanza beyond par. Produced by BN Sircar for New Theatres, Calcutta and directed by Phani Mazumdar, it had the two foremost singing stars of that era, paired for lead roles. The star cast includes KL Saigal, Kaanan Devi, Jagdish Sethi, Bikram Kapoor, AH Shorey, Boken Chatto, Chamanlal, Abdul Rehman, Braja Paul, Ram Kumari, Nirmal Bannerjee, Rani, Satya Mukherjee. Interestingly, the music maestro Khemchand Prakash, also played a role in this movie, as a stage hero working in the theatre.
