The Hindi film industry has seen many legends in its 100+ years of existence. Giants in their chosen field, revered by not just their generation but by generations that followed. They have a very fond place in the hearts of film lovers, who are eternally thankful for their immense contribution to cinema. They all recognise the the world of cinema would be much the poorer without this contribution.

One such legend, and one who probably elevates the worth of the term “legend”, is, without doubt, yesteryear poet and lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi.

Today (25 october 2018)happens to be his death anniversary – and, as we’ve done on previous occasions, we pay our humble tribute to him today.

Among various artistes that I’ve written about on this blog, Sahir has probably featured the most, alongside Rafisaab. I’ve written many times about him, on his birth and death anniversaries.

And yet, I’m never bored while discussing Sahir. Yes, readers of my posts might get bored 🙂 – but I’m not.

Whenever I write about him, I feel a rush of energy in my body. The content might be repetitive, but the huge regard I have for him overcomes everything else.

Sahir’s status as poet and lyricist extraordinaire is established beyond debate. He might not have been the most popular person around (and that’s the understatement of the millennium!) but even his most ardent critics would have to grudgingly acknowledge the sheer magic of his poetry.

Such is the richness of the treasure trove that he has left us that no post can do justice to it. In previous posts on him, I have often listed some of his songs – the sheer power of many of them transports you to a different world. Yes, there’s much more to a song than just its lyrics – but with Sahir, you could be assured that the lyrics never missed your attention.

Sahir’s lyrics were a direct reflection of his personality. He had strong views on various aspects of life and society, on relationships, on politics – and never hesitated to let the world know of them. It was as if he was waiting for an opportunity to use his poetry and lyrics to convey the message that Sahir, the person, wanted to get across to the world.

Thus, when you listened to “zindagi bheekh mein nahin milti, zindagi badh ke chheeni jaati hai”, you felt it was Sahir exhorting you to demand your rights in life.

Or even, later in life, when he was disillusioned with the way things were going in his life, “main pal do pal ka shaayar hoon”.

Sahir had a very strong sense of justice and injustice in society. Early in life, when called upon to choose between his mother and his far wealthier father, he chose his mother. Till her very end, he was totally devoted to her. Many of his songs reflect the loving relationship between a mother and child.

Throughout his life, Sahir spoke out against injustice and tyranny. He spoke for the underprivileged, the marginalized, the labour class. He tried to show society a mirror, however ugly it looked. He was trenchant in his criticism of the state of affairs – “Samaj ko badal daalo” was one of his lines.

Sahir’s lament about the pathetic state of living for the poor in India is well illustrated in the poignant songs of Pyaasa (1957). “Yahaan par to jeewan se hai maut sasti” he wrote, following it up with “ye duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai”. “Jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hain”, he said.

Continuing in this refrain, he went satirical, writing “Cheen-o-Arab hamara, Hindustan hamara, rehne ko ghar nahin hai, saara jahaan hamaara” for Phir Subah Hogi (1958).

Each line, one could feel, coming straight from the heart.

There were other aspects also that Sahir was concerned about and discussed in his lyrics. Hindu-Muslim unity for example. Always a sensitive topic, and even more so in the years following independence. But Sahir was never one to shy away from a topic – his lines “tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega” are some of the greatest lines of Hindi cinema.

The other thing that bothered Sahir greatly was the treatment of women in Indian society. He was deeply disturbed by the lack of respect accorded to women, thanks to a patriarchal society that privileged men over women. Sahir minced no words while lamenting this – his “aurat ne janam diya mardon ko” is a classic in Hindi cinema, with its entire theme revolving around women and how they have been treated by men in India.

It is therefore only fitting that on his death anniversary, the song picked for the blog reflects his thoughts on this topic. The song is “Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa na saki” from Lakshmi (1982). The film was released after Sahir’s death – in fact, the film starts with a tribute to Sahir.

This song was one of several songs proposed to me for this write-up by Avinashji. As usual, he has been kind enough to prepare the lyrics for this song.

Though this song is not all that well-known, certainly not as well known as “aurat ne janam diya mardon ko”, its words are trademark Sahir. Typical of him, in this song too, he laments the way women have been treated in Indian society. But this time he uses Seeta as his example, saying even she could not find happiness on this earth. He says women have forever suffered, and in today’s world, there isn’t even a Valmiki to give a Seeta refuge in time of need. She has to fend for herself all alone, and constantly seek to avoid the predatory eye of men around her.

Talking of the predatory eye, I cannot help talking about one of the hottest topics right now in India – at least in urban India and on social media. And that is the #MeToo movement. I’m sure Sahir would have had something to say about it, had he been around. So I’m taking the liberty of sharing my thoughts on the subject.

The #MeToo movement, in my opinion, is primarily about those who have been sexually abused and harassed, coming out with their story. While these are mostly women, it is not necessarily limited to women alone. There have been a few cases of men too coming out with their horrific stories. At the moment, it is largely focussed on workplace harassment, but there’s no reason it couldn’t go way beyond that.

It is a fact that, mainly thanks to our patriarchal society, there is a huge power imbalance between men and women in India. This actually exists around the world, but the patriarchy makes it much worse in India.

Power, as we all know, is a hugely corrupting and intoxicating drug. So it is not at all surprising that those in power, mostly men, would tend to exploit those they have power over, mostly women. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody.

What makes it worse, as if to add insult to injury, Indian society is also unforgiving towards women in this respect. Instead of being supportive, it tends to blame the victim. Even the woman’s own family make her feel guilty for what is essentially a man’s wrongdoing. She is often gaslighted into thinking that it is somehow her fault, that she invited it. She is encouraged to just be quiet about it, since “the honour of the family” might be at stake.

If she is a working woman, she might even be encouraged to stop working. Many women have fallen out of the workforce in India for this reason alone.

Then again, thanks to the power imbalance, she is up against it if she even chooses to seek justice through the justice system. To even make a complaint to the police, to get an FIR registered is a huge challenge. When you’re complaining about a more powerful party, the system will bend towards that party. The police will either discourage you from giving your complaint, or will mock you, or will flatly refuse to write an FIR.

If you do get past the police hurdle, you still have the rest of the justice system to deal with. Courts which will insist on evidence – which in most cases of this sort is just not available.

Besides, the other party being much more powerful, he can ensure your life is made miserable.

So justice through the normal justice system (which is often referred to as “due process”) is almost always a pipedream.

To help matters, at least in the workplace, new legislation was brought in in 2013, replacing the earlier Vishakha guidelines which laid out steps to be taken at a workplace to deal with sexual harassment complaints. An employer is supposed to set up an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) and so on.

I won’t go into all the details, but the reality is that many employers have not even set this up. And even where this is theoretically in place, women who have complained have failed to get justice. On the contrary, it has boomeranged on them – they’ve been marked as “trouble-makers” in the organisation. Remember, they are complaining about someone who is almost invariably in a higher power position in the company.

With this being the stark reality, whether we like it or not, is it surprising that many women have just kept their pain buried within themselves? They have tolerated harassment but not brought it out in the open. Maybe they didn’t want to jeopardize their careers – after all, it is the woman who tends to bear the brunt of any negative fallout in these matters.

But now we have #MeToo.

Some women at least have decided enough is enough. It is not their shame to bear, so why should they? So they have decided to come out with their story. It is cathartic for them – it must be so hard to keep this buried within you for years.

Some of them have disclosed their identity, some have not. Some have disclosed the identity of the predator, some have chosen not to specifically name him (although there are usually enough hints in their story). It’s upto each person to decide what level of comfort she has – no one can demand she behave in a particular way.

One complaint about #MeToo is that many of these stories are coming out after many years. Ten years, even twenty years. Why didn’t they come out earlier? How can we possibly believe something that might or might not have happened a decade ago?

I feel this is unreasonable. I’ve already explained how the odds are stacked against the woman – the situation was even worse a decade ago. Besides, when women have been constantly shamed, why would they invite further ridicule by complaining, especially when they have no hope of justice?

It is only now, that thanks to the #MeToo movement, they are coming out with their story – hoping to get closure if nothing else. If they get justice, great – if not, at least they’re hoping for closure.

Many have complained that outing men on social media is not the right way to go about this. That women should follow due process – that is, go through the justice sytem of police and courts, or through the workplace structures for this purpose.

And that has worked, right? After trying all that, and hitting their heads against a wall, women have finally chosen social media as their hope for getting their message across. And who can blame them? It’s not like they didn’t want due process – it is that “due process” failed them completely.

Another criticism of #MeToo is that it is often just accusation, without evidence. And no court can possibly accept that. There’s a chance that an innocent person is maligned out of malice or whatever other reason, and his reputation totally destroyed by a #MeToo accusation.

Yes, this is possible. In the spate of accusations, it is possible that some are fake too. Which is why every accusation needs to be attempted to be vetted to the extent possible. Having said that, it is also very unreasonable and unrealistic to expect evidence in cases of sexual harassment, because of its very nature. It tends to happen behind closed doors. So there will be many cases where such evidence is just not available.

Yet another criticism is that #MeToo is about the urban elite and about sometimes seemingly trivial harassment, while women in rural India suffer far worse.

I think this is unfair. Yes, rural women suffer harassment too – possibly much more. Does that mean urban women should be silent? What sort of logic is that? Rather, we should hope the movement spreads to rural India too. Most movements anyway start with those who have relatively more agency – and then spread.

All in all, I think #MeToo in India was long overdue. It started in the US almost exactly a year ago, and exposed many well-known Hollywood personalities like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. Around that time, an Indian in the US, Raya Sarkar, prepared a list of predators in academia – but she was unfortunately criticized and the movement did not pick up steam then in India.

Now it has.

No one knows how it will go from here. Will it evolve further? Or will it fizzle out?

I’m sincerely hoping it evolves further. I’d like to see it grow – go beyond urban India, go beyond the few sectors it has so far been largely restricted to (films, media, advertising). There must be many more cases in politics, in government and corporate India, where power is most prone to abuse. Maybe those stories are slow in coming because the women involved are less comfortable coming out with their stories.

And that’s only fair. Each person has to decide for herself – she has to weigh the consequences of her actions. We need to respect that.

One huge positive impact of #MeToo has been that men themselves seem to be re-assessing their behaviour. Not just in the past but also in the present. They seem to be becoming more sensitized and aware of boundaries and space. And about consent. At least I hope so.

Hopefully films too will become more sensitized to gender from now on. I think it is already happening. Films in the past have been hugely misogynistic, often presenting stalking as romantic! And considering how much of an influence films/TV have on society, they might have playe thei role too in moulding society into what it is today.

But then, they were a function of their times – I don’t want to dwell on the past. We can’t change that anyway.

What we can change is the present and the future. And hopefully from now on at least, we will see better-behaved men, whether triggered by #MeToo or not.

Of course, we need much more to happen. Until we dismantle patriarchy there is always going to be victim-blaming and shaming. We all know that men are the root cause of the problem, yet we will continue to blame the women and expect them to “behave themselves”.

So much more needs to happen. We can all do our bit – by calling out patriarchy when we see it, even if it happens without our close circles. By bringing up the next generation with a better understanding of gender equality so that boys don’t grow up with a sense of entitlement. This is what manifests itself in most undesirable behaviour when the boy becomes a man.

Clearly we haven’t done enough in the last 60 years, since Sahir wrote “aurat ne janam diya” in 1958. It’s a sad reflection of our society that it feels relevant even in 2018.

I’d like a future generation to listen to it and say “Oh, how horrible things were for women in those days! Thank God things are so much better today, and women don’t go through all that!”

I know I’m dreaming – but you know what they say. Ummeed pe duniya kaayam hai.

Let’s do our bit to make it happen?

Thanks for listening.


Song-Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa na saki (Lakshmi)(1982) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Naa tera durbhaagya nayaa hai
Naa jag ka vyavhaar nayaa aa
Naa raahon ke shool naye ae
Naa patthar dil sansaar nayaa

Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai
Jo zulm teri taqdeer banaa
Jo zulm teri taqdeer banaa
Wo zulm yugon se zaari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai

Wo kanyaa ho ya garbhwati
Naari ko sadaa apmaan milaa
Wo kanyaa ho ya garbhwati
Naari ko sadaa apmaan milaa
Avtaaron ki nasl badhaa kar bhi
Patitaaon mein sthaan mila
Sadiyon se yahaan har ablaa ne
Sadiyon se yahaan har ablaa ne
Ro ro kar umar guzaari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai

Kehne ko to devi kehlaayee
Par naar yahaan daasi hi rahi
Kehne ko to devi kehlaayee
Par naar yahaan daasi hi rahi
Do pyaar ke meethhe bolon ki
Martey dam tak pyaasi hi rahi
Jo zehar miley wo peeti jaa
Jo zehar miley wo peeti jaa
Tu kaun si Janak dulaari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai

Maikaa chhoota sasuraal chhoota
Jaayegi magar jaayegi kahaan
Maikaa chhoota sasuraal chhoota
Jaayegi magar jaayegi kahaan
Ab Valmiki saa koyi rishi
Is dharti par paayegi kahaan
Ab tu ik bhatki hirni hain
Ab tu ik bhatki hirni hain
Aur mard ki aankh shikaari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai
Seeta bhi jahaan sukh paa naa saki
Tu us dharti ki naari hai

ना तेरा दुर्भाग्य नया है
ना जग का व्यवहार नया आ
ना राहों के शूल नए ए
ना पत्थर दिल संसार नया

सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है
जो ज़ुल्म तेरी तकदीर बना
जो ज़ुल्म तेरी तकदीर बना
वो ज़ुल्म युगों से जारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है

वो कन्या हो या गर्भवती
नारी को सदा अपमान मिला
वो कन्या हो या गर्भवती
नारी को सदा अपमान मिला
अवतारों की नस्ल बढ़ाकर भी
पतिताओं में स्थान मिला
सदियों से यहाँ हर अबला ने
सदियों से यहाँ हर अबला ने
रो रो कर उम्र गुजारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है

कहने को तो देवी कहलाई
पर नार यहाँ दासी ही रही
कहने को तो देवी कहलायी
पर नार यहाँ दासी ही रही
दो प्यार के मीठे बोलों की
मरते दम तक प्यासी ही रही
जो ज़हर मिले वो पीती जा
जो ज़हर मिले वो पीती जा
तू कौनसी जनक दुलारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है

मैका छूटा ससुराल छूटा
जायेगी मगर जायेगी कहाँ
मैका छूटा ससुराल छूटा
जायेगी मगर जायेगी कहाँ
अब वाल्मीकी सा कोई ऋषि
इस धरती पर पाएगी कहाँ
अब तू इक भटकी हिरनी है
अब तू इक भटकी हिरनी है
और मर्द की आँख शिकारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है
सीता भी जहां सुख पा ना सकी
तू उस धरती की नारी है

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 74# Remembering Kishore Kumar on his Remembrance Day #
———————————————————————-

Today (13th October’2018) is the 31th Remembrance Day of – singer, actor, director, producer, lyricist, music director, writer – and our ‘most beloved and versatile genius’ Kishore Kumar.

I had planned a write-up for this occassion several months back and had even started work on it but it kept getting delayed for various reasons. My recent travel to India and the work load after getting back to work also prevented me from finalizing that write up.

Yesterday I browsed through the list of Kishore Kumar songs earlier shared by me to Atul ji and still to be posted. I found that many of these songs are yet to be posted on the blog. Despite this list, I was not able to pick the song to cover on this occasion.

Whole day yesterday(12 october 2018),I was just thinking and it was looking like I may not be able to send a song at all for this occasion. But how can I miss this occasion without a song …

Finally, I turned to my list of ‘songs that bring back memories’ which I had compiled in 2014 for one of my write up on the blog, to find if any Kishore Kumar songs in that list were yet to be covered in the blog.

I found many such songs in this list that are still to make it on the blog. From these many songs I selected today’s song as my presentation on this occasion here…

This song is from the movie ‘Ram Bharose-1977’ …

I had not watched this movie in those years and even till now so I cannot write much about this movie.
However, this song somehow has been stuck up in my mind and I like it very much, may be because of its tune and singing of it by Kishore Kumar. Or May be because of its frequently heard on the loud speakers and radio I guess.
I think it’s a nice hummable song 😊

I watched the video of this song only now during the preparation of this post and I think this song is better heard than to watch 😊

‘Ram Bharose-1977’ (alias ‘God’s Own Man’) was directed by Anand Sagar for ‘Sagar Art (International) Films, Bombay’ and Ramanand Sagar.
It was produced by Subhash Sagar.

Star cast of this movie includes Randhir Kapoor, Rekha, Amjad Khan, Dara Singh, Keshto Mukherjee, Kanan Kaushal, Madan Puri, Nazir Hussain and Sujit Kumar. It also had Raza Murad, Tom Alter, Shailesh Kumar, Jagirdar, Jagdish Raj, Chaman Puri, Master Baboo, Javed Khan, Shiv Raj, Sole, Shahid Bijnori, Ram Murthy, Deepak Raj and Shetty.
Editing for this movie was done by Lachmandass. Dialogues of this movie were written by (Late) Krishan Chander. This movie was written by Moti Sagar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 21.04.1977.

There were Six songs in this movie composed by Ravindra Jain. Hasrat Jaipuri, Ravindra Jain, Tajdar Taj and Dev Kohli were the lyricist for this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Narinder Chanchal, Kishore Kumar and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

Going by the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK the other song I am familiar with is ‘Chal Chal Re Kathmandu’. 🙂

Today’s song is the first song from this movie to appear on the blog… and ‘Raam Bharose-1977’ is thus making a debut on the blog.

I have noted the lyrics as per the longer audio version having three stanzas, whereas the video link I find is having two stanzas only.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar which is composed by and written by Ravindra Jain …

Raam se badaa Raam ka naam …Banaaye sabke bigde kaam …

(PS :- Incidentally after few days we are going to celebrate ‘Vijay Dashmi’ and remembering Lord Shri Raam, my best wishes to all in advance )

Season’s greetings and best wishes to all for the Navratri Festival starting today (10 october 2018)!!!

I have mentioned in a few of my earlier write-ups that festivals too bring back many memories and they in turn bring back memories of songs which we have heard years before… in my case ‘years before’ generally means ‘in my childhood days or in those years when I was growing’ 🙂

Today’s song is one such song which normally comes to my mind during celebration of the ‘Navratri festival’ every year. I was under impression that this song must have been posted on the blog earlier, however much to my surprise, this song is mot yet covered till now. And that gives me this opportunity to share this song today on the blog.

I vaguely remember that in our colony where we were staying then (for me after my birth in 1968 to 1984 when I was in eleventh standard :)) during Navratri Festival or Durga Pooja Festival the Durga Pooja Idol would be worshipped in the Colony Club or special ‘pandals’ arranged near the ‘Club Building’ and the ‘Stage’ (meant for the various programs held during the festival). However, unlike the ‘Ganpati Festival’ during which various ‘cultural programs’ would be held, during ‘Navratri’ it was mostly the staging of ‘Ramleela’ for nine/ten days.

I do not have any more special memories except a few songs that were played on the loud speakers and the “Ramleela” which I vaguely remember. Ttoday’s song is one such song that was frequently played on loud speakers during this festival and had been lying dormant in my memories since then.

The song that I am going to present today is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’.
Going by the date of passing of this movie by the Censor Board I was almost three years old then, when the movie was released. Johar whenever he combined with Mehmood in movies and Mehmood specially for his movies were always a point of discussion among the elders in the family. I remember watching ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’ and ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’ with my Uncles. I do not remember if I also watched ‘Johar Mehmood in Kashmir’. These movies had good songs or good entertaining songs, so the songs were also not easily forgettable given their performances on these songs.

“Johar Mehmood in Hongkong” (1971) was produced by Madan Chopra and K.Z. Sheth. It was directed by S.A. Akbar.

It was M.O. Bawazir’s presentation for Mahesh Ashish.

The movie had I.S. Johar, Mehmood, Sonia Sahni, Aruna Irani, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor, Tuntun, Manorama, Madhumati, Haroon, and Pran. Agha, Mukri, Jr. Mehmood, Polson, Shaikh, B.B. Bhalla, Raj Kishore, Khairati, Murad appear as Guest Artistes in this movie.

This movie was written by I.S. Johar who also wrote the screenplay and dialogues for this movie. Vithal Bankar was the editor for this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji Anandji who were assisted by Babla and where Parte was the arranger and Frank Fernand the Conductor.
There were Six songs in this movie penned by Qamar Jalalabadi (four songs) and two songs are jointly credited to Qamar Jalalabadi and Indeevar (as per HFGK).

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Shamshad Begam, Manna Dey and Usha Timothi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.
As per HFGK Lakshmi Shankar, Usha Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar’s voice has been in one song each, however their names are not mentioned in the titles of this movie (available on YT).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.01.1971.

So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Today’s song happens during the ‘Navratri Celebrations’ which all ‘Hindustanis’ living in Hong Kong celebrate every year and send the ‘Garba matka’ to India. Our heroes Mahesh and Ramesh (readers can easily guess who is Mahesh and who is Ramesh) who successfully flee away from jail with other accomplices after giving ‘Jamal ghota’ to Kamal Kapoor, Pran & Co and reach Murad (who is head of the Indian Embassy in the movie I guess) with the ‘secret formula’. Murad advices them that the formula can be easily sent to India in this ‘matka’.

‘Ambe maiyya’ ab hamaari aur hamaare desh ki raksha tere haath hai, desh ke drohi e pujaariyon ko Bharat bhejne se pehle hi khatm kar dena chahte hai, magar Ambe maiyya agar Ramesh aur Mahesh khatm ho jaayen to tu apni chhah bhujaaon se chhah Ramesh aur Mahesh paida kar ke desh ke drohiyon ko chakkar mein daal dena.
Jai Ho …

That is what Ramesh praises to Ambe Maa before the song …

And that is why we have this patriotic garba and seeking the blessings of the goddess to save the mother land and our country …

The movie ends with this song on a happy note where the enemies die their own death and our heroes board the flight for India dancing and enjoying with the ‘secret formula’ in the ‘Garba Pot’.

From today the auspicious festival starts all over India.In Gujarat especially the excitement and preparations for the festival had already begun much earlier when I was there. The ‘garba and dandia’ bhajans and songs had already started playing on in shops, restaurants and public places where the celebrations were to be held.

I had wiitnessed all that during my brief two weeks stay in Gujarat. I have returned back to my work place as per planning and had to travel on Sunday and reaching my destination on this Monday evening >:)I am missing all that excitement a lot now 🙂

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh. And since it involved Singer Mukesh I thought I should consult our Mahesh ji if I can do write-up with this song and he immediately responded that I can ‘go ahead’, thanks to Mahesh ji.

I also take this opportunity to wishing all a very ‘Happy Navratri Festival’ and may it be peaceful and enjoying for all and may the Goddess blessed us all with her blessings and gives us energy to do good for all and fight the evil within and around us …

Let us now enjoy this song composed by Kalyanji Anandji and sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh …

Blog Day :

 Today we remember the great son this soil Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his birth anniversary.

We remember him for his bravery, courage, determination and supreme sacrifice made for a cause of the people, the people of this country.

He laid down his life at a young age of only 23 years, 5 months, and 25 days. He could have surrendered to the British and chosen a leisurely life enjoying the benefits and luxuries showered by the Britishers on him, had he requested to forgive him as proposed by them. However instead of choosing ‘the life of slavery’ he chose to dedicate his life for the ‘noblest cause – the freedom of his Motherland’ from the Britishers.

He will remain the inspiration for many as long as humanity exists and people read about him and realize what Bhagat Singh was and how great was he to have done so much in one single life of only 23 years.

I have earlier presented my thoughts while presenting the songs ‘Pagdi Sambhaal Jatta’ and ‘Vekho Loko Khidan To Pehlon’. Whatever will be written about him to remember him and his thoughts, is very less in comparison to the legacy he has left for us. And I am sure as the coming generations read about him will find his thoughts still relevant in terms of what his dreams of ‘true freedom’ for India was and what we have achieved after getting our ‘freedom’ – and they will find that yes, we have still miles to go to build this nation in the pursuit of those dreams.

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts the year 2002 was a special year as in that year there were as many as three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

While “23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date the other movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released at a later date.

I will not go into which one amongst them was better than the other. The important thing is that they were made on the life of Bhagat Singh and to make people aware of his true story (may be with a little or more filmy touch).

Today I present a song from the Rajkumar Santoshi directed ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh-2002’. This movie was produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS). It had the star cast of Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, D. Santosh, Akhilendra Mihsra, Raj Babbar, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Mukesh Tiwari, Surendra Rajan, Saurabh Dubey, Kenny Desai, Sitaram Panchal, Bhaskar Chatterjee, Sunil Grover and others.

The screenplay was written by Rajkumar Santoshi, Piyush Mishra and Anjum Rajabali. It was edited by VN Mayekar. Songs for this movie were penned by Sameer and music was composed by AR Rehman.

All songs of this movie composed by AR Rehman are very very good and I liked them as they fill us with patriotic fervour and with a poignant touch, yet making us thoughtful on the life and times of the martyrs and their feelings for their motherland.

Today’s song is in two parts and is sung by AR Rehman and Sukhwinder Singh.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now …

Desh Mere Desh Mere Meri Jaan Hai Tu …

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 4
————————————————–
(Rafi Sings for Jr. Mehmood # 3)
————————————-
Greetings to all for the ongoing ‘Ganesh Festival’…!!!

I have many fond memories of ‘Ganpati Utsav’ being held in our colony premises and the ‘various cultural programs’ held during the ‘ten-day’ festival.

For us children then, the main attractions were ‘Orchestras’, ‘Dramas’ and a ‘movie’ if at all it could be arranged and screened in open ground and where we used to watch it from either side of the screen.:)

Among the other programs like ‘orchestra’ and ‘drama’ which would be performed by artists coming from different locations there was also a ‘drama’ and ‘cultural program’ by artists from our colony and students from schools. I was always a part of the ‘drama’ team of juniors as a ‘performer’ and also was a part of the ‘seniors’ for ‘prompting’ behind the stage if some artist forgot the ‘dialogues’. My voice was suitable for that purpose at that time. 🙂

That reminds me of one of my friends who used to do mimicry of Mehmood and Junior Mehmood on stage during such programs. And that also reminds me of ‘the musical nights being held that time with some special star also performing therein’. But, since such programs would be held at the city about 25/30 kms from the place we were staying then, it was not possible for us children to attend such programs.

Junior Mehmood was among the ‘star performer’ in those years and that reminder bring us to this fourth article in the series of articles covering songs performed by or picturized on Junior Mehmood and lip synced by him on screen in Hindi Movies.

Initially I started this series discussing the songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood and the following two songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood have been discussed earlier;

1) Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey (Rivaaz)(1972)

2) Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film (Bansi Birju) (1972)

Thereafter we extended this series to cover the songs sung by other singers (mainly female singers, I think so 🙂 ) for Junior Mehmood. And those songs which are yet to be discussed on the blog.

Thus, we have the following song as the third post in this series which was posted on 15th November, 2017;

3) Mera Naam Hai Mehmood.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’.

‘Tanhaai-1972’ was ‘S.B. Films’ presentation, directed by Jagdish Nirula for ‘Chitrashala, Bombay’. This film was produced by S.I. Shivadasani.

It had Rehana Sultan, Anil Dhawan, Shatrughan Sinha, Jagdev, Lakshmi Chhaya, Iftekhar, Poornima, Dulia, Randhir, Baby Chintu, Lalita Kumari, Jankidas, Moolchand, Arpana, Master Shahid, Jagdish Raj, Kirti, Madhu, Jery, Bhola
And Mehmood Junior.

The movie introduced Ashok Khanna.

Story & Screenplay of this film was by Sadhram Sapru. Its dialogues were written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Editing for this movie was done by Govind Dalwadi.

Its music was composed by Usha Khanna and the four songs of this film were penned by Asad Bhopali – three songs and Amanullah Khan Aman – one song.

The film had three solo songs- two by Asha Bhonsle, one by Kishore Kumar which has already been discussed here, and one song sung by Mohd Rafi, Usha Khanna (and Junior Mehmood (as per HFGK), however the titles of this movie did not mention the name of Junior Mehmood under ‘Playback’.

The film was passed by Censor Board on 23rd October’1972.

As per the filmography of Jr. Mehmood available on various sources on the internet he acted in many movies since his first release to this movie “Tanhaai-1972”.
However, these sources where his filmography has been mentioned does not mention the name of this movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’ in their list. (So, the complete list of his movies/filmography needs to checked and authenticated to have accurate number of movies if we need to discuss them year wise.)

Also, till the release of this movie “Tanhaai-1972” Junior Mehmood was a part of many movies which were successful at the box office and he was seen in many Rajesh Khanna movies like ‘Do Raaste-1969’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna-1970’, ‘Kati Patang-1970’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi-1971’, ‘Chhoti Bahu-1971’, ‘Dil Daulat Duniya-1972’ and other movies.

I had mentioned in my earlier post and many of us are aware of that Junior Mehmood shot to fame from the ‘1968 movie – Brahmachari’ where he performed on Mehmood’s famous ‘ham kaale hain to kya huaa dilwaale hain’ from ‘Gumnaam-1965’’.

He repeats once again performing on Mehmood’s famous ‘mehbooba mehbooba bana leo mujhe dulha’ from ‘Saadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’ in the movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong-1971’ where on screen he performs in the presence of his guru Mehmood and I.S.Johar. (Peevesie’s Mom ji have recently discussed this song from ‘Saadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’ on the blog).

Mehmood Fans and moviegoers are well aware of Mehmood’s – ‘Kapoor’s three generation act- Prithviraj, Raj and Randhir, in the song ‘Ye kaisa aayaa zamaanaa…’, in the movie ‘Hamjoli-1970’.

Surprisingly this song is yet to be posted on the blog. (may be Mehmood fans in the group are aware and want to give us a surprise 🙂 )

Junior Mehmood tried to repeat a similar act in the song ‘birhaa ki rain’ which is being presented here today.

Taking inspiration from the above song from ‘Hamjoli-1970’ and continuing his ‘genius’ further, and in fact going a step further of his Guru Mehmood, Junior Mehmood did this ‘four roles’ (additionally enacting a female artist, Aruna Irani, I guess…) act in today’s song.

Initially I had planned this song post to be shared in Oct’15 and it was then that the first draft of this article was prepared, however later it got delayed and the song from the movie ‘Baalak-1969’ was posted.

I have not watched this movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’, however our beloved Raja Saab had mentioned of watching this movie in his post presenting the first song from this movie – ‘saawan mein kahin aag na lag jaaye chaman ko’ on the blog.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 72 #
#Shor Mach Gayaa Shor… Dekho Aaya Maakhanchor#
———————————————————————-

Here is wishing all a very Happy Janmashtami Festival and May god shower his love and blessings for all …

As I had said in one of my earlier articles that Seasons and Festivals also trigger some musical memories, and we already have many songs for such occasions.

Songs that bring back memories…

I have very fond memories of celebrations of Janmashtami in our colony we were staying then when I was growing.

I remember that bhajans/songs would be played on loud speakers since morning and among the many topical (Hindi/Marathi)songs played, the following songs associated with this festival got permanently engraved in my mind:-

Kanhaiyya kanhaiyaa tujhe aana padega (Maalik- 1972)
Shor march gayaa shor dekho aaya maakhan chor (Badlaa-1974)
Krishna Krishna bolo Krishna (Naya Din Nayi Raat-1974)
Govind bolo hari Gopal bolo (chhup chhup Meera roye…- Johny Mera Naam-1970)

Songs/bhajans would start since morning. That would be regularly interrupted by announcements about timings of ‘Pooja’ and ‘Prasad’ so that nobody missed them. 🙂

Then people would also be informed about the ‘Dahi Handi’ programme to be held near the Temple Complex which was an important part of this festival.

We children would eagerly wait to watch the ‘matki-phod’ and enjoy the excitement and also arranging similar ‘dahi handis’ on a ‘smaller’ or ‘very smaller’ 🙂 (if we compared it now) scale around our quarters.

And, of course, for us children the other main attraction was the ‘gopal kaala’ (Prasad specially prepared on the occasion of Janmashtami.

It was very exciting and thrilling experience to watch the seniors participating in the ‘Dahi Handi’ then. The excitement and thrill is still there even today when the programmes are held around every Janmashtami or watching the happenings in news or live on TV nowadays.

(And so when I get connected with this blog I had shared all these songs in 2012 itself, except the one from ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ which was already there posted on 30.06.2012.

The song from ‘Naya Din Nayi Raat-1974’ was posted on 05.09.2015, and I hope to present the remaining one from ‘Maalik-1972’ too on the blog, in future…

As I said may be there were other filmy/non-filmy songs and bhajans. But the above songs continue to grow with me and are pure nostalgia for me.
Today’s song that I am presenting herewith is full of this excitement and captures the joy and thrill in right spirit of the ‘Dahi handi’ or ‘matki fod’ during the celebration of ‘Janmashtami’ …

This song is from the 1974 movie ‘Badlaa’.

‘Badlaa-1974’ was produced by R.C. Kumar for ‘Century Films, Bombay’. It was directed by Vijay, who also wrote the Story of this movie. It had Shatrughan Sinha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Ajit, Johny Walker, supported by Padma Khanna, Alka, Shetty, Mohan Choti, Maruti, Bhagwan, Keshav Rana, Ram Mohan, Sabina, Mohan Sherry, Kamal Deep, Mac Mohan, V. Gopal, Johny Bakshi, Desh, C.S. Dubey and Mehmood.

Nirupa Roy, Arun Irani, Anwar Hussain, Paintal, Sujit Kumar, Shyama, Madan Puri, Harindranath Chattopadhyay, Iftikhar, Sudhir, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Jayshree T, Meena T, Shefali and Kajal make a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay for this movie was written by Jagdish Kanwal and Vijay. Jagdish Kanwal also wrote the dialogues of this movie. Editing for this movie was done by S. Chakravarty who was assisted by Herman Topno.

This movie had five songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Minoo Puroshottam gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was released with restricted viewing (A certificate) and passed by Censor Board on 07.03.1974.

I had not watched this movie so cannot say much about this movie and its performance at the box office then. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

The picturization of this today’s song seems to be inspired by the picturization of the ‘iconic govinda song’ ‘Govinda aala re aala …zara matki sambhaal brijbaalaa’.

This song was shot by Director Manmohan Desai on the streets of Bombay. This very popular song was at rank 31 in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year in 1963.

The next Janmashtmi song that was created after the song under discussion was from ‘Khuddaar’ in 1982 – ‘mach gayaa shor saari nagri re’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Though it was popular that time it didn’t make to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’. However two other songs from the same movie were there in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ and one of them ‘angrezi mein kehte hain ke’ was at number one.
I was under the impression that this song ‘mach gayaa shor saari nagri re’ has already been posted on the blog, however this is yet to be posted.

That brings us to the today’s song which stood at 22 in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year in 1974.

The instrumental musical interludes played in between this song will remind listeners the other song composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal – ‘shaadi banaane ko Keshto chalaa’ from ‘Chaacha Bhatija -1977’

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song (may be forgotten now) and celebrate ‘Janmashtami’ reminding ourselves of the many aspects of Lord Krishna …

[Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song was sent by Prakashchandra as well long long ago]

Blog Day : 3680 Post No. : 14574

The 15th of August, is a special date in the calendar for India.

Every year, there are events across the country celebrating the day. There is flag-hoisting in schools, offices and public places. There are patriotic songs played on radio. There’s a lot more to mark the date and occasion.

All of this is understandable. After all, it was on the 15th of August that many years ago, India became an independent nation, free from British rule.

Today is the 72nd Independence Day for India. I still remember the Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1972 – I was part of my school March Past event. How time flies!

But there is more to this date than just celebration. It is an occasion that at least some of us use to reflect. On India’s journey as an independent nation so far. We take stock of where we are, and where we’d like to see us go from here.

I am sure there must be many articles written on this subject in various media publications this week. On our part, our Avinashji has sent me the lyrics for today’s song and requested me to share my thoughts on this occasion. I am therefore taking the liberty of doing so.

Whenever I think of 15th August, the first thing that comes to my mind is our Freedom Struggle and our Founding Fathers. Today we take our freedom for granted – it is hard to even imagine that we were once a colony of the British Empire.

But if it were not for the struggles and sacrifices of millions of Indians, from every corner of the country, would we have got independence when we did? We are familiar with some of the more prominent names who were part of this struggle. But there were so many more who made sacrifices, who gave up their lives for the cause – and died unsung.

I always think of them on 15th August.

Then the Founding Fathers themselves. Once India became an independent country, Britain left it to fend for itself. Can you imagine the challenges a new-born India would have faced at that time?

India was then a country reeling from the horrors of partition. Although there had been talk of partition for a while, the actual execution of the whole process was done very hastily, without enough attention to detail. Political lines were drawn to create India and Pakistan, but these were still being “negotiated”. Even on independence, many villages did not even know whether they belonged to India or Pakistan. And there were the tricky issues of princely states like Junagadh and Hyderabad. And there was Kashmir.

So things were very fluid on 15th August 1947, though technically India and Pakistan had both become independent nations.
The mass migration of millions across borders, with all the violence and pain that ensued – how can one ever forget that! People lost everything, their families, their possessions. Their entire life got uprooted as they became refugees in their new world.

Then, post independence, the massive task of bringing more than 565 princely states into the fold of one nation. How challenging was that! Some agreed to be part of India. Different tactics were needed to bring the others into the fold.

All this while communal harmony, already severely tested in the tense times leading upto the partition, was just about hanging by a thread. The partition exposed fault lines much more nakedly – there was resentment amongst Hindus in India for Muslims who had not migrated. And the other way round in Pakistan.

As we know, many Muslim artistes in the Hindi film industry even changed their names to Hindu-sounding names to avoid becoming targets of hatred, and to appeal to the largely Hindu audiences.

Such was the fragility of Indian communal harmony in the immediate aftermath of independence.

Talking of fragility, it was not only communal harmony that was fragile. Independent India had inherited unprecedented levels of poverty, exacerbated by partition woes. Its economy was in very bad shape. Poor living conditions meant disease was not uncommon. Added to this was a very high level of illiteracy and social backwardness in general.

Kashmir was still a burning issue, Gandhiji got assassinated.

The overall situation looked so bleak at one time that Life Magazine, in the late 1940s, even ran a story along the lines of “Will India survive?” Clearly the world was skeptical.

Thankfully, our Founding Fathers were not.

Even in the midst of all these seemingly insurmountable challenges, they stayed steadfast on course, buoyed by the exuberance of having a new baby to nurture and nourish. Yes, there were challenges – but, to them, these were teething troubles.

Despite differences amongst themselves (yes, they did have differences!), they were united on one thing – all of them had a dream of a strong, resilient, and free India. Their views on how to get there might have been different – Nehru might have had a socialist mindset, Rajaji a more capitalist mindset – but they shared this common dream.

This dream involved providing, for every Indian, a fair opportunity at life. A life of dignity. India would be a country where justice would be available to one and all. A country which had hitherto been suppressed, but whose peoples would now be able to breathe freely, not be enslaved to any thought. They would be free to pursue a religion of their choice. India would be a country whose people would feel a sense of fraternity towards each other, not be divided by regionalism, casteism, religion and other such divisive elements.

This dream got enshrined in the form of a Constitution for India. When India became a Republic on 26th January 1950, it further underlined the vision of the Founding Fathers – that there would be no monarchy in India, that there would be elected representatives, elected by the people. There’s a lot more in the Constitution – it lays down the terms of reference between organs of the State, separation of powers between the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, it talks about fundamental rights and duties of citizens.

While there is always scope for improvement, and any document should be a living document kept in tune with the times, the Constitution of India does provide a great framework for the country. Without it, there would be utter chaos.

And for this Constitution too, we need to thank our Founding Fathers and their vision.

I know none of this is new to anyone – and I am rambling – but I do think that at least on Independence Day (if not on other days) we need to remind ourselves of how much struggle, sacrifice and effort went into first making India an independent nation, and then ensuring it survived against the greatest of odds.

Unless and until we appreciate the magnitude of the challenges that were faced and overcome at that time, we will not be able to value the freedom we have today.

So I hope you will excuse my rather long history lesson. 🙂 If there are any inaccuracies here, please do let me know. I’m happy to be corrected.

The song “hum laaye hain toofaan se kashti nikaal ke” comes to mind in this regard.

Now to today’s India. Let’s take stock of where we are.

We’ve come a long way from those early fragile years. Sure, we’re still not where we’d like to be, but we’re definitely not looking at an existential crisis.

Economically too we are far better off today. Although we still have millions below the poverty line, and many above it still struggling to make both ends meet, we are better off than the “independence” generation. Many of us will admit that our own fathers and forefathers had a much tougher life than we are having now.

Education levels have also significantly improved. I have doubts about the quality of education as I see many “highly-qualified” Indians unable to comprehend basics, completely lacking in logical or analytical thinking, lacking in life-skills, but that’s for another debate. Let’s just say, we have many millions more “educated” Indians today.

In many other areas, like tackling disease, or improving sanitation or road infrastructure, India is progressing. It’s a 71-year young nation now, one would expect nothing less.

So on the material front, I think India is on the right track. Still a long way to go, still a lot of poverty to eradicate, but I have hope.

My bigger concern is to do with freedom and independence. Not of India, but of Indians.

I happen to think India became free and independent on 15th August 1947 – but only in a political sense.

Indians are FAR from being free or independent, even today, 71 years later.

When Indians attained freedom from colonial rule, they expected to be able to lead their lives as free citizens. No more being slaves to anyone, no more being treated like third-class citizens.

The reality though is that we are still slaves. Not to British masters anymore, but to Indian ones.

The difference is, we didn’t elect those British masters, we now elect our Indian masters. The specific individuals change, but the underlying master-slave relationship doesn’t.

In theory, in a democracy, we, the people, have power. We elect representatives on our behalf to run the affairs of the country. These representatives are therefore “public servants”, supposed to serve the interests of the people. They are supposed to be accountable to the people for the tasks assigned to them. They are also accountable to the people for funds utilized by them because these funds are collected from, and on behalf of, the people. They are supposed to be transparent about their work, so that the public can evaluate progress (or lack of it).

This is the theory.

We all know how things work in practice.

But why don’t they work?

Simply because there is a huge power imbalance between the people and their representatives. These representatives, so-called “public servants”, have steadily increased their power quotient at the cost of the people they are supposed to serve. As it is, they have the power to make laws – so they make or modify laws to strengthen their power position, to legitimize their power grab, thus further skewing the imbalance in their favour. Sel-aggrandizement is the mantra.

This isn’t just the story of one political party – this is with practically every political party.

Which is why the solution isn’t to just replace one party with another.

The solution is to structurally redress this power imbalance.

Make the public more powerful.

How?

There is very little power in the hands of one individual. I can scream from my rooftop but my single voice means nothing.

But there is a lot of power in a large group. The larger, the better.

When a large group chooses to raise its voice, these representatives have no choice but to listen. Otherwise they know they will be on the wrong side of the numbers game.

And in a democracy, it is all about a numbers game.

But for a large group to raise its voice against the powers-that-be, it has to, first of all, be free. It must NOT have a slave mentality.

And that’s a big problem in India.

Maybe due to historical baggage of being ruled by maharajas, many Indians are still subservient to authority. They are still happy to be “ruled”. Feudalism, although less today, still plays its role in perpetuating this master-slave relationship.

This is also why SO many Indians still have this “mai-baap” attitude towards government and other powers-that-be. They fall at the feet of politicians, seeking favours, sometimes even begging for something that is their right, but has been denied to them.

And of course, the politicians then act high-and-mighty, dishing out largesse as if they are royalty. They act generous – it’s easy to be generous with other people’s money. A sizeable share of the public’s hard-earned money is distributed as an act of generosity by the politicians. And they get praise for this. Not to mention votes.

It is THIS mentality that is my biggest issue with Indians. This slave mentality.

Which is why I say India became a free country on 15th August 1947 – but Indians are still slaves.

Just to clarify, I wouldn’t blame the poor or destitute for this. They are barely struggling to survive on a daily basis – they hardly have any choice or agency. But those who DO have a choice, who don’t HAVE to grovel before the powers-that-be but still do so, they are the ones who are undermining the effort to redress the power imbalance. They are often the ones to first stand up in defence for the powers-that-be, against their own fellow citizens.

So on this Independence Day, my request to all Indians is to abolish this slave mindset – and be free. If you don’t want to be treated like a third-class citizen, you first need to stop behaving like one.

Freedom is too precious to let it be taken away from you by anyone. Like Sahir said “zindagi bheekh mein nahin milti, zindagi badh ke chheeni jaati hai…apna haq sangdil zamaane se, chheen pao, to koi baat baney”.

And please stand up for those who try to break these chains of slavery. As I said earlier, this battle cannot be fought by one individual. So when someone is trying to fight against oppression, against slavery, please support his or her effort, instead of undermining it by being loyal to the master.

Even during our Freedom Struggle, there were Indians who undermined the effort of fellow Indians by taking the side of the British. This only made the freedom struggle harder.

I hope we have learnt from that lesson.

There are a lot more thoughts in my head on this Independence Day – there are a lot more improvements I’d like to see in India. Especially with regard to society.

The thing is, if we harbour aspirations to be a truly developed nation, we need to also have progressive thought in society. Mere material progress isn’t enough.

It saddens me to see that even in 2018, some of our thinking is regressive.

Patriarchy is still rampant in Indian society – with all its negative consequences for women, and even men. It is one of the biggest reasons for rapes and other forms of violence against women.

Then, our casteism. Even today, Dalits are discriminated against – let’s not pretend they aren’t.

Indian society is full of prejudices – just look at matrimonial columns to get an idea.

There’s a lot more that bothers me – I could go on and on.

But this post has already become too long – and each of these topics deserves proper discussion and treatment of its own.

So I will stop here on these topics.

Just to clarify, I’m not saying we haven’t come a long way. We have. But we still have a very long way to go – in terms of poverty alleviation/elimination and society upgradation.

The responsibility lies largely with those of us who are relatively privileged and educated. Even the Freedom Struggle counted amongst its leaders many well-educated Indians, of whom many had had the opportunity to study or live abroad and get a different perspective on life and their country.

So those of us who are in a position to make a difference need to do so. But for that, we first need to CARE for our less-privileged fellow citizens. Instead of looking down on them, we need to think of how we can make their lives better. We need to help make them free and independent citizens. Remember, WE are the fortunate ones, to even be able to read this online. I don’t mean this in the slightest patronizing sense – the fact is that we are all privileged. Millions are not.

Also remember, those well-off Indians from the Freedom Struggle could very easily have just enjoyed their privilege instead of throwing themselves into the Struggle. They chose to make sacrifices because the cause they were fighting for, was bigger than their individual selves.

We need a similar cause that we can all rally around today. If that is the prosperity of India, it must mean the prosperity of all Indians, not just a select few. But prosperity, without peace and harmony, is useless. So the cause must encompass all these components.

India is nothing without Indians. It would be just a piece of land. So talking about “making INDIA a great nation” is all just empty rhetoric if we are not working towards making the future of INDIANS great. And again here I mean ALL Indians, not a select few.

For me it is all about the individual first. She or he is the unit-level of existence. If the individual isn’t empowered, if she or he isn’t free, what’s to celebrate about the nation being free? The nation is just a bunch of individuals, right?

You might not agree with my thoughts (and that’s perfectly fine!) – I’m just sharing them here on request of Avinashji. 

A lot more running in my head too – but this post has already become way too long now, so let me get to the song for the occasion.

It is a non-film song. A patriotic song composed by Khayyam, sung by Rafisaab, to Sahir’s lyrics.

I heard this song for the first time only a few days ago – I quite liked it. I hope you like it too.

Happy Independence Day. And thanks for your patience in tolerating this long post. 🙂

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 5 # Suresh Wadkar #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fifth article in this series where we are discussing Special Voices that made their debut in HFM in the Seventies and carved their own niche on the HFM scene.

Some of them enjoyed success for a little while only to fade away with passage of time. Some of them became popular and continued to remain so for considerable time.

No matter how they fared at the HFM scene, all of them contributed in enriching HFM. All of them provided music lovers with many memories to cherish and savour.

Today we will be discussing about one such talented artist- Singer- who made his debut in 1977 and over the years has given us many memorable songs and who is active even now (I think his latest film song was from ‘Bramhaand Nayak Sai Baba-2016’ and a NF -ghazal album sung by him was released in 2016 in memory of his guru ‘Acharya Jiyalal Vasant’ i.e. ‘Chupke Chupke’) In addition, he is active in singing Marathi and other regional language songs as well.)

In his career spanning almost forty years, he has more than five hundred songs to his credit (if the sources I am referring to are correct). And given the number of songs he has sung I can say that his must be the most prolific artist among all the artists who will be featuring in this series …

Incidentally I get a chance to share one of his songs for our ASAD – 10th anniversary celebrations. And regulars to this blog who have listened to this song ‘Kaale kaale baadal jab bhi chhayenge’ and the male voice in it, I am sure must be still feeling the sweetness, the magic and the melodious range of this voice lingering in their ears still now or for that matter of any songs sung by him leave this impact on the listeners as usual.

***

Suresh Ishwar Wadkar was born on 7th August’1954 in Kolhapur (Maharashtra).
We wish him a belated happy Birthday and healthy and peaceful life ahead…
(Belatedly as I could not finish the write up in time and send it to our editors in time).

Another story of coming from a very humble background and scaling newer heights through sheer dedication, sincerity and perseverance in the field of music.

Suresh Wadkar’s father was a ‘mill worker’ in Sitaram Mills. His father was very fond of music and particularly ‘bhajans’. And the surroundings in which he grown up was traditional and cultural as all festivals were celebrated with fervour and music being an intrinsic part of it.

His father was very fond of ‘bhajans’ and he used to attend many programmes of ‘bhajans’ where Suresh then 4/5 years old used to accompany his father in these programmes of ‘Bhajan’. That is where he got with in all our traditions and cultures and listening to talented singers. And as it happened he was singing something and that was noticed by his father, and thus started his formal training classes in music when he was five only.

His guru from Sangli Shri Digrajkar was then giving him lessons in singing. He advised Suresh’s father to let Suresh continue with music and singing.

When he was eight he come to Acharya Jiyalal Vasant’s gurukul and Acharya ji groomed him into what he is today. He took care of all of his education and all. And looking into his passion when he was only thirteen years old his guru Jiyalal ji advised him to give training to other students in his institute.
Looking at his understanding of music, Acharya ji advised Suresh Wadkar to pursue education and degree in music. Following his guru’s advice Suresh Wadkar joined Prayag Sangeet Samiti and secured his degree of ‘Prabhakar’ in music and later joined ‘Arya Vidya Mandir’ in Mumbai as a ‘Music Teacher.

Suresh Wadkar, naturally, has great respect and admiration for his Guru ji and other disciples at the ‘gurukul’ – his ‘guru bhai’ and ‘guru behen’ and his elder sister i.e. daughter of Acharya ji – Prem Vasant– he speaks about them with great love and passion. And he has in deep sense all the gratitude for whatever his ‘guru ji’ has given to him and that is why after his ‘guru ji’ passed away being an elder among all the disciples he has shouldered the responsibility of his ‘guru ji’s legacy’ in the form of the school of music founded by his guru – ‘Ajivasan’ (this also gives online training in music).

He also started an online music school, called SWAMA (Suresh Wadkar Ajivasan Music Academy), (an innovative initiative) under Ace Open University continue to impart training in music in New Jersey. He, his wife, and his ‘guru sister’ visits every three months to supervise the operations and classes going on there.

and for him ‘music’ is the most difficult and greatest form of art which needs more dedication, seriousness and religiousness in efforts.

He has very high regards towards all the music directors who had given him the opportunity to sing and specially for the Mangeshkars he speaks about them with respect and gratitude. In his interview here one can listen his thoughts and just imagine what kind of a ‘noble’ and ‘pure’ character must be and that is what I think we finds in his voice too.

He was also present in the recent Jaidev Birth Centenary celebrations held at NCPA (NCPA Bandish music festival) Mumbai where our Respected Senior Shri Bharat Bhai was also present.

***

How this ‘anokhi aawaaz’ make his debut in the Hindi Film Industry is another interesting story.

It so happened that in 1970s (in 1976 to be specific) a big musical competition organised by ‘Sur-Singaar Sansad’ was held where participants aspiring to be singers from all over India participated this competition.
However, Suresh Wadkar’s singing impressed everybody and he was awarded ‘Madan Mohan Puraskar’.
Famous music directors like Jaidev, Ravindra Jain, Pt Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Sudhir Phadke and Pt Shivkumar Sharma and Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia (Shiv-Hari) were the panel of the judges who judge the competition and selected the winner.

Ravindra Jain while announcing Suresh Wadkar as winner also announced that he will be singing a song in his next movie and thus happened ‘vrishti pade taapur tupoor’ …

The next opportunity for Suresh Wadkar came straight way from the most respected and talented Music director Jaidev ji who given him the opportunity to sing in ‘Gaman-1978’. Later on, Suresh Wadkar also worked with him as his assistant and sing for him whenever he was given an opportunity to do so.

While assisting Jaidev ji he got to learn many things of music and the nuances of composing music.

Somehow as they say it was destined to be, Lata Mangeshkar is said to have heard about this voice and she was so impressed by his singing that she recommended him to the famous music duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal and also to Khayyam Saab and Kalyanji bhai-Anand ji bhai.

After that, it was no looking back for Suresh Wadkar and he keep getting many opportunities from all music directors ruling the HFM at that time.

***

For me, I have vague memories of this song ‘vrishti pade taapur tupoor’ being frequently heard on radio & loudspeakers and I do like it very much.

Then ‘seene mein jalan’, I remember I liked it very much and may be that was the time when for the first time I must have been got to know about the singer or we among friends must have discussed about this voice (looking my interests in HFM since childhood, I think I can say that).

Then I remember this song from ‘Krodhi’ in 1981 ‘chal chameli baag mein’ was a regular at the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ and it stood 16th in the annual programme of the Binaca Geetmala that year.
However, the next year’s – 1982’s ‘Binaca Geetmala’ in its annual programme saw as many as four songs having Suresh Wadkar’s voice viz. ‘Main hoon Prem Rogi’, ‘Meri qismat mein tu nahin shaayad’, ‘Muhabbat hai kyaa cheez hamko bataao’ all from ‘Prem Rog-1982’ and ‘Megha re megha re’ from ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’.

I think with the songs of ‘Prem Rog-1981’ Suresh Wadkar became a household name and almost all of its songs were a huge hit though ‘bhanware ne khilaaya phool’ is my favourite. It is different thing that not this song but the other songs of ‘Prem Rog’ (couple of which I don’t like then), make to the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

Before that we had ‘megha re megha re’ from ‘Pyaasa Saawan’ taking us to reach out the clouds about to rain ‘the message of love’ … and we got soaked in the melodious voice of Suresh Wadkar …

Surprisingly before that we had his voice at number seven of annual ‘Binaca Geetmala-1979’ singing ‘Jijaaji jiaaji honewaale jijaaji’ in which he lent voice for Vinod Mehra in ‘Saajan Bina Suhaagan-1978’.

In 1981 we also have the magical ‘ye aankhen dekh kar ham saari duniya’ from ‘Dhanwan’ which spelled its magic on audience and it was too very popular and is also one of my favourite songs. (and this was his first song to appear on our blog).

After that I remember may be sometime around 1982-83 when I was on a visit to Nagpur (may be for watching the cricket between India and Pakistan at my Uncle’s home, on TV which had just reached us then, and into the old city market I heard this song playing on Radio ‘shaam rangeen huyi hai’ and I was totally taken away by this song. At that time, I was not knowing which movie it was from. Many years I keep searching for this song which I later got to know (I think it was because of this blog only) it was from. It was from the 1981 movie ‘Kaanoon Aur Mujrim’. Once again, a gem of song but not rewarded and forgotten in the midst of other popular songs then.

Also, I cannot forget ‘ae zindagi gale lagaa le’ from ‘Sadma-1983’, so close to our hearts and may have been liked by many many like me.

‘Likhne waale ne likh daale’ from Arpan from the same year was on 19th while meri qismat mein tu nahin shaayad was on 12th in 1983 annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

Later on, we have ‘aur kyaa ahad e wafaa hote hain’ from ‘Sunny-1984’, ‘saanjh dhaley gagan taley’ from ‘Utsav-1984’, then we have gems of songs from ‘Sur Sangam-1985, popular songs coming from ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili-1985’, ‘Khaamosh sa afsaana paani se likhaa hota’ from the UR – Libaas -1988, ‘sooni sooni ankhiyon mein’ and ‘rakibon se habibon se’ from ‘Laal Dupattaa Mal Mal Ka’, ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir wo jhadi hai’, ‘surmayi shaam is tarah aaye’ from ‘Lekin-1990’, ‘Dil-1991’, ‘Sangeet-1992’, and there are many.
Many are my favourites too… like ‘tumse mil ke aisaa lagaa’, ‘dhadkan zaraa ruk gayee hai’, ‘husn pahaadon ka’ and many …

And how can I forget ‘hamraahi mere hamraahi’ and ‘aur is dil mein kyaa rakhaa hai’, then I had also watched this movie ‘Yaadon Ki Kasam-1985’ which had ‘Baithh mere paas tujhe dekhta rahoon’.
I also remember ‘chaudhavin raat hai, ab chaand dikha de apna’ from ‘Yaadon Ke Mausam-1990’ which was frequently heard and popular then …

Not to forget ‘chappa chappa charkha chale’ and ‘chhod aaye ham wo galiyaan’ both from ‘Maachis-1996’.

There are many … and I would like to note here that the list of his Marathi songs is another long list where I have my favourites and many gems of songs which he has sung in Marathi.

The list goes on and on and we cannot list them all (at least the popular ones) here due to space constraint (and if I have missed to mention any prominent one I would like readers to forgive me for that).

After coming into the contact with this blog initially I had shared few of his songs (in 2012-13) like ‘Goron ki naa kaalon ki’ (from Disco Dancer, which I think was also quite popular in those years), then ‘Kabhi ajnabi thhe (Title Song), and ‘Surmayi shaam’ from ‘Lekin’ which remains to be posted yet. And there are many of songs still to be posted on the blog and the reason may be that since his career started at the end of seventies and picked up later in the eighties, we still have a long way to go to represent his songs on the blog (as of now 57 only).

So, I will stop the listing them here and come back to the today’s post now …

For this post, selecting a song was very difficult because as I said above, we still have a long way to go and there are many songs to choose from.

However, I had this song ‘Ram Dulari maike gayi’ 🙂 from ‘Meri Biwi Ki Shaadi’ in my mind since many years and I had decided that I will select only this song and not any other. (And it was from a movie of seventies and nostalgic for me too 🙂 )

But, while I was browsing through the filmography of Suresh Wadkar songs I came across this movie and when I listened to this song I was totally taken by it and it started growing on me as I listened to it again and again. This was from the movie ‘Bhayaanak-1979’ composed by Usha Khanna.

I had not watched this movie earlier and even now. From the star cast I can guess that this song is lip synced on screen by Ravi Kumar, a newcomer, who was paired with Razia Sultana, another newcomer. The picturisation of this song and its singing by Suresh Wadkar makes it very special.
As the movie didn’t fare well at the box office, I think this and other songs of this movie were forgotten easily.

‘Bhayaanak-1979’ was directed by S.U. Saiyed for ‘AVM Arts International’.

It had Mithun Chakravarty, Sadhoo Meher, Niloo Phule, Chandrashekhar, Mushtaq Merchant, C.S. Dubey, Jagdish Raj, Shaheen Khan, Sushila Raut, Annu Dhawan, Sadhna Khote, Hamid Rakesh, Major Anand, Fatima, Mannu Arora, Master Danny Jr., Master Abid, Master Anis, M. Miquel, and Madan Joshi and Om Shiv Puri were the other star cast of this movie.

Ranjeeta had a special appearance in this movie. Sharad Saxena makes a Guest appearance in this movie.

The movie introduced Ranjan Garewal, Shashi Ranjan and a ‘fresh romantic pair Ravi Kumar and Razia Sultana’ (as per the movie titles 😊)

Warsi Ahmed Siddiq was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie.

Harish Choudhry was the editor of this movie, and he was assisted by Sudhir Deshpande.
M.Maroof wrote the script of this movie. Munir Shah was the Dialogue Director.
Dialogues were written by Madan Joshi, while the story was by the AVM arts story department.

It was passed by Censor Board on 23.08.1979.

It was a suspense movie released for restricted viewing with ‘A’ certificate.

Lyrics of the five songs in this movie were penned by Indivar and music was composed by Usha Khanna.

Suresh Wadkar, Hemlata, Anuradha Paudwal (wrongly spelled Paduwal in the titles of the movie) gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

(Source of Information for this post – I have used the various YT links giving biographical details of Suresh Wadkar, then his Interview available here, which I would like interested readers should visit and listen to his story in his own voice.
I also referred to Wikipedia and other information on internet and songs in my memory 
When I thought of this write up considering the information available I thought I would be able to send it before 7th Aug, however after going into the details of his life and career I doubt whether I have been able to do justice to the feelings and thoughts going in my mind, as the enormity of his talent, his struggle and what he has achieved is such that it requires a detailed study or a ‘full biography’ in the form of a book (at least for me).

Let us now enjoy today’s song … and savour this ‘magical voice’ of Suresh Wadkar. I would once again request readers to forgive me if I have from my side not been to that level in bringing this biographical sketch here. For me the memories of the voice and nostalgia, of course, is the first thing close to my heart and this is my endeavor in return for all the beautiful memories this voice and the other voices have given to me …

Earlier we had the following four posts in this series, I am listing them below for interested readers …

Blog Day : 3669 Post No. : 14546

Less than a week ago, we remembered our beloved Rafisaab on his death anniversary.
Today happens to the birth anniversary of another of our beloved legends, Kishore Kumar (popularly referred to as Kishoreda). So we very fondly remember him today and pay tribute to him.

Both Rafisaab and Kishoreda died when just in their 50s – both of them could have easily gone for many more years. But life and death matters are not in our hands – we can only thank them for what they have given us, the legacy they have left behind for generations to relish.

As with Rafisaab, I have written a lot about Kishoreda already on this blog. I am extremely fond of him – as I have said many times, it is never a competition for me between artistes. This isn’t an Olympics event where if one has to get gold, the other can at best aspire for silver.

I remember a poll in the late 70s, where people had to vote on who was the better singer, Kishoreda or Rafisaab. I don’t remember who came up with the poll but those were times when Kishoreda was the reigning star. He himself felt so embarrassed by this poll that he conveyed his unhappiness at it and it ended.

Professional rivalry apart, Kishoreda and Rafisaab had great respect for each other and were actually very good friends. Amit Kumar, Kishoreda’s son, has narrated stories about their friendship. So all this petty thinking is in the minds of people and not those who are the topic of discussion.

Personally, I have always stayed away from discussions trying to pull down one artiste to make the other look better. Thankfully, the world of music is like an ocean – it has room for everyone to contribute to, and partake of, its treasures.

Amongst the artistes, sure, there might be competition to be better than the other – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It only makes one strive to be better.

I remember Laxmikant-Pyarelal saying that if RD Burman came out with a hit album, L-P wanted to do better with their next. And RD had the same competitive spirit. But it was never malicious, or to run down the other.

As music lovers, we benefit from this – we get the best of all worlds.

Now let me talk a little bit more about Kishoreda since this post is a tribute to him.

Where do I start?

With his singing of course.

I am fond of Kishore Kumar the actor too. I’ve seen many of his comedy films of the 50s and 60s.

I am also much-impressed by Kishore Kumar, the producer/director. Contrary to his image of being more of a prankster and comedian, his films Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971) are thought-provoking, sensitive, films with depth. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see a different side of Kishore Kumar.

I am also impressed by Kishore Kumar the composer. He composed almost entirely only for his own films – and did a wonderful job at it.

Considering he was also the writer for his own films, it gives us an idea of what a brilliant all-rounder he was. It is hard enough to do one job, but to do so many so effortlessly requires genius.

And Kishoreda definitely qualifies for this. Much like Sir Gary Sobers, former West Indian cricketer, who, as an all-rounder, could do practically anything on a cricket field.

And yet, despite all this, what Kishoreda will be best-remembered for, and what he absolutely excelled in, was as a singer.

Which is why I would like to discuss more about his singing now.

I’ve said this many times before – I grew up with Kishoreda all around me. Those were the early 70s – and Kishoreda was everywhere. You had to live in that time to realize how much he dominated that period. Or, if you want evidence, just check Binaca Geet Mala lists and you will know.

I don’t need any such evidence – I know that every single day Kishoreda dominated song programmes on radio that were based on the latest Hindi film songs. The female voice might have been largely split between Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, but the male voice was Kishore, Kishore and Kishore.

It was often for Rajesh Khanna, but even when it wasn’t, it was Kishore. It could be Kishore for Shashi Kapoor (Sharmilee) or for Dharmendra (Blackmail) or for Jeetendra (Parichay) or Dev Anand (Gambler) but it was Kishore all the way.

Occasionally there’d be a male voice of a “new” song that was not Kishore. That song often stood out as an exception. It could be Rafisaab or Mukesh or Manna Dey. But it was always the exception, not the norm.

So THIS was the environment in which I grew up. My school classmates used to sing a lot of songs – they were invariably Kishore songs. In particular, I remember songs like “o mere dil ke chain” (which was my favourite at one time), “chalte chalte”, “o maajhi re” and “zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain”.

But of course there were many more.

My own favourite would keep changing. I had this concept of a favourite song which I’d sing non-stop (driving others crazy) till another favourite took over.

I remember it was at one time “ye shaam mastaani”, then “sama hai suhaana suhaana”, then “jaane ja dhoondhta phir raha” took over, to be displaced by “o mere dil ke chain” (this was favourite for a very long time) and then “tere bina zindagi se koi” took over. There might have been others too, I can’t remember now. In between, there were umpteen songs that I’d sing while taking a break from my favourite. 🙂 Obviously, all to myself only – which is why I am still alive. 🙂

This post is already getting a bit long but I’ll mention one anecdote from school days. I was in 8th Standard. In those days, we’d often ask our teachers for a “free period” – sometimes a teacher would be nice enough to oblige. Boys would then go up to the front of the class and sing songs.

Once our English teacher gave us a “free period”. The best singer in the class, by name Prasad, went up to sing. Suddenly he announced “I’ll sing this song because it is Raja’s favourite”. Now I was quite a favourite of my teacher, maybe because I was reasonably good in English. She immediately looked at me – I am pretty sure she expected an “English” song. Maybe Carpenters or Rolling Stones, or Beatles, or some such group. She probably had that idea about me.

Prasad started singing “o mere dil ke chain”.

I could see the look on my teacher’s face. It was like she had been hit by a brick. A Hindi song? That too a film song? That too, a romantic song? Bhajan hota to phir bhi chal jaata. I turned red, and immediately averted my eyes, looking down throughout, hoping the earth would just open up and swallow me. I was sitting in the front row, right in front of her, so there was no place to hide. Prasad must have sung very well – he always did – but I couldn’t listen to one word. I was too busy lost in my own “misery” to pay attention to anything else.

Somehow I managed to survive – though I think my teacher never quite saw me the same way again. 🙂 Prasad has a lot to answer for. 🙂

Today, this anecdote suddenly came to mind as I was writing this post. Wonderful memories – of Kishore Kumar songs, enjoyed with my classmates in school.

The point is to emphasise how much of an influence Kishore Kumar had on me at that time. Rafisaab came into my life much later.

By the time the 1980s came along I could not keep track of the latest songs. Partly because I got busy, partly because I didn’t like where music was headed. (“Angrezi mein kehte hain” and “shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal”, you know I’m looking at you :-)).
Anyway, it wasn’t Kishore’s fault. His voice was always a delight to listen to.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song I’d never heard before till Avinashji brought it to my attention a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of the film.

The original idea was to possibly post it as Kishoreda’s 1100th song on this blog, but since another song took that place, we are posting this as his birthday song. The lyrics are, as usual, by Avinashji.

The song is “geeton mein mere” from Geet Ganga (1982). The film itself makes its debut on this blog today.

It is a pleasant song which grows on me the more I listen to it. I have already listened to it quite a few times.

The lyrics, referring to songs flowing like the Ganga, have a nice feel to them. Anjaan, the lyricist, being a native of Varanasi, had his own style of lyrics, often bringing a Bhojpuri feel to them. And this song referring to the Ganga is in the tradition of other songs written by him which also refer to it – “Ganga kinaare waala”, “maano to main Ganga maa hoon”, “Ganga mein dooba” for example.

The song is picturised on Arun Govil, and as he “sings”, the words resonate with me.

jhoom ke aise ae
geet sunaaun
nafrat mein bhi preet jagaaun
dushman ko bhi meet banaaun
jo dil chhu le ae
geet wo gaaun
swarg utaaraa
saat suron mein bahe re jag saara

Lovely lines – and it is wonderful to listen to Kishore Kumar singing them. Indeed “jo dil chhu le, geet wo gaaun” suits him – he sang many songs that touched our heart.

I hope you like the song too.

On this note, I will end this post as it has already become somewhat long.

All I will say is, Kishore Kumar will always remain in our hearts as a very special person – one of a kind.

Thank you for everything, Kishoreda.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 71 #Remembering Kishore Kumar on his birth anniversary#
——————————————

Today 4th August (2018) (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) is the 89th birth anniversary of the ‘Versatile Genius’ Kishore Kumar or Abhas Kumar Ganguly or as he always liked to introduce himself as – Kishore Kumar Khandwewaala. ( 🙂 I cannot forget Khandwa when I am writing about Kishore Kumar.)

I had already marked a song earlier to present on this occasion but could not finish the write-up as during past many days I had been facing a very hectic schedule on work front and also getting very less time in the evening even to browse the blog which otherwise is my daily routine activity in evening every day.

However, a little relaxation at work today gives me this opportunity to write this post. And I am writing it just eight hours before it will be 4th August there in India. And I sincerely hope that our ‘Editors’ get enough time to review it.

There were two posts on the blog recently reminding me of the song which I am going to present here today.

One was when Atul ji posted a ‘disco based song’ from the movie ‘Dil-E-Naadaan’ sung by Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna, and another one was Peevesie’s Mom sharing a song from ‘Suraag-1980’, my memories of listening to today’s song got refreshed.

So, when I was finding myself unable to present a writeup on this occasion, this song comes to my rescue and here I am, presenting this song with a brief write up.

As some of our regulars may be remembering and I also have mentioned this in my earlier write-ups, I was totally taken up by Rajesh Khanna and his movies starting in early eighties and I was trying to look for his other earlier movies and songs more and more. And whenever I came across a Kishore Kumar song I was trying to find out if it was from a Kaka movie and for Kaka.

My Uncles and other relatives would often teasing me on Rajesh Khanna subject and that is why when I wanted to know about this today’s song they told me that it was from the movie Suraag. And since Kaka had a guest appearance in this movie I thought it was possible that this song was picturised on him.

However, it was not a Kaka Song but a nice hummable Kishore Kumar song which was then available in Disco Songs Compilation on cassettes. And it was not from the movie ‘Suraag’ too.

It took me a few years to find out that this song was from the movie ‘Patita-1980’. Finally, when we arrived in the ‘digital age’ of internet and YTthen I came to know that this song was lip synced and performed by Mithun Chakravarty on screen.

So today, on the birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar let us enjoy this song …

The movie ‘Patitaa-1980’ was passed by Censor Board on 11.11.1980. It was directed by I.V. Shashi for ‘Tristar Movies, Bombay’. It had Shoma Anand, Vikram, Raj Kiran, Mithun Chakravarty, Shammi, Ram Sethi, Raj Mehra, Mac Mohan, C.S. Dubey, Birbal, Baby Shalu, Master Rajesh, Viju Khote, Madhup Sharma, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Bramha Bharadwaj, Jagdish Raj.

Sujit Kumar, Sulochana, Madan Puri, Padma Khanna, and Bhawana Bhatt make guest appearance in this movie.

‘Patitaa-1980’ had five songs written by Anand Bakshi and music composed by Bappi Lahiri. Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) the records of this movies included the ‘Instrumental Disco Music’ based on the tune of the today’s song – ‘dil dhak dhak karne lagaa’ thus making the total number of songs of this movie to Six.

I have not watched this movie and would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

The movie makes a debut on the blog with the today’s song and this also serves the one of my purpose of introducing movies having the same title. We on our blog have the famous oldie ‘Patita-1953’ already ‘Yippeeeed’. The second ‘Patitaa-1980’ makes a debut today. 🙂

Let us now enjoy this foot tapping song and remember our beloved Kishore Da today …
And just listen the freshness in his voice and how he sings this one for Mithun Chakravarty in a ‘mellowed’ tone but in a ‘disco mood’ …


Song-Dil dhhak dhhak karne laga (Patita)(1980) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Dhak dhak dhak dhak
Dhak dhak dhak dhak
Dhak dhak dhak dhak
Dhak dhak dhak dhak

Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa aa
Main dil se darne lagaa aa
Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa
Main dil se darne lagaa
Aisaa aa lagtaa hai
Main kisi pe marne lagaa aa
Haaye
Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa
Main dil se darne lagaa

Main poochha karta hoon
Is dil deewaane se
Wo khud aaye to kya ho
Jiski yaad aane se
Aayi ee koi khushboo oo
Koi jaadoo oo
chalne lagaa aa
Ho o o o o
Aisaa aa lagtaa hai
Main kisi pe marne lagaa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa aa
Main dil se darne lagaa aa

Tasveerein dekhin hain
Kitni baazaaron mein
Hey ae
Tasveerein dekhin hain
Kitni baazaaron mein
Tum jaise hain hazaaron
Wo hai ek hazaaron mein
Dekhi
do nigaahen
Main aahen bharne lagaa
Ho o o o
Aisaa lagtaa hai
Main kisi pe marne lagaa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa
Main dil se darne lagaa aa

Sochaa thha kheloonga
Main ek khilaune se ae
Ab kaise rokoon dil ko
uspe aashiq hone se
Main to
dillagi mein ae
Dil ka saudaa
karne lagaa aa
Ho o o o
Aisaa lagtaa hai
main kisi pe marne lagaa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Dil dhak dhak karne lagaa
Main dil se darne lagaa
Aisaa lagtaa hai
main kisipe marne lagaa
Haa
