ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 5
———————————————————————

Our blog will be completing a decade online on 19th July, 2018, and I think this is a great great achievement of Atul ji – our leader – who over all these years has keep it going with his tireless efforts and dedication towards the blog in spite of having his own personal priorities including his full-time job.

I got an opportunity to get in contact with this blog since (my first comment on 15.09.2009 – Kashti Ka Khaamosh Safar Hai …) and after that it took me few years to become a part of the ASAD team on 05.09.2012 when my first contribution – Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe –  was posted on the blog. So, after a couple of months it will mark my six years on this blog as a contributor and team member of this family.

As I have said in one of my earlier articles here that when I joined this blog, my main objective was the songs which were in my memory since childhood and these were the songs which are very nostalgic for me and those which brings back wonderful memories for me – Tere Mere Yaaraane ho o. Revisiting those songs is like reviving again the old days – the days I was growing – the childhood and the ‘magic of cinema’.

Over these years since 2012, after the initial phase of sharing ‘lot of songs’ from the seventies, I have also shared some of my anecdotes and written about movies which I may not have watched but their songs are part of my memories. After coming into the contact with this blog I also got to learn and became aware of many songs of yesteryears, got to know about the great personalities associated with these songs, and about the vast treasure trove that HFM is.

In few of my earlier posts I have already written about ‘what this blog is for me (Hum Se Roothhe Hi Bhale Saara Zamaana) and how over all these years it has become an essential part of my life.  Hence, I will not repeat all those feelings here, and will come to the song in today’s post.

For this 10th anniversary celebrations of the blog, my theme is ‘nostalgia’. What I want to express in today’s post is that other than the ‘nostalgia’ of songs and movies that I share on this blog, now this blog itself has become a ‘nostalgic’ part of my daily routine. As I browse it daily it brings back memories of initial years a ‘contributor’ and the communications that I have been doing all these years with the team of contributors. And the most beautiful thing of all to happen was meeting some of our team members in person – the gang outs 🙂 – Is Mulaqaat Bas Mazaa Lijiye.

This is the most beautiful part of ‘my’ life and I think I can write it – ‘our life’. Because we, ‘strangers’ to each other, have now become as one ‘soul’ and ‘one life’ because of this blog only. The joy of meeting each other in the ‘gang outs’ cannot be described in words here. It is an everlasting feeling and after every meeting we long to meet next time with many new things to share.

Personally, I feel myself very fortunate to be a part of this blog and to have met some wonderful peoples- our seniors and fellow team members – in my lifetime and it’s like ‘jeevan dhanya ho gaya’, so what more one wants because ‘main to kuchh bhi nahin tha, is blog ne mujhe bahot kuchh bana diya’ 🙂 . In the near future I hope to meet other members whom I have not yet met in person 🙂 . This ‘Suhaana Safar’ will be continuing on and on. . .

In India, this month of July brings the monsoon and nowadays it’s raining in almost all the parts of the country. The monsoon generally takes over and covers the whole country in this month. For me, it is a regular here since months and even in this winter season here in Kenya now, we have regular rains. That is why when I think about the birthday of this blog, it was in July in 2008. Every year on the anniversary of this blog, Atul ji must be remembering those days when he was thinking of launching this blog or putting his thoughts together which later on became a ‘full online regular blog’ 😊

aise hi kuchh din rahe honge wo bhi
jab kaale kaale baadal mandlaa rahe honge
aur idhar geeton ki varsha barasne ki tayyari ho rahi thi. . .

With these thoughts in mind let us enjoy this lovely song and fall in love with HFM yet once again – the songs that brings back memories and the ‘nostalgia’ everybody has been associated with in one’s life. Because hereafter when these celebrations are over the memories of this wonderful week will become a part of our ‘nostalgia’ forever and will be remembered every year. And if the virtual gang out happens, it will also leave behind memories to cherish forever.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful composition from Rajesh Roshan penned by Qateel Shifai, and which has the sweet and melodious voices of Sadhna Sargaam and Suresh Wadkar. The film is ‘Anjaane’. As per information available online, this film was launched in 1993, and its music was released in 1995. However, production delays and other issues caused the film to be released only in 2000. I have not seen this film and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Once again thanking Atul ji and all other members of this blog and wishing all the best in the future, let us enjoy this song.

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 4 # Nitin Mukesh #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fourth article in this series where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

As Gulzar Sahab has said in one of his famous albums. . .

door kahin jab wo pahaad ka tilaa baadlon se dhhak jaata tha
to ek aawaaz sunaayi deti

Zaahir si baat hain ki umr ke jis padaav par aap honge, aur jo yaadein aapke zehan mein bas gayin hongi, aap ko bhi kuchh aawaazein sunaayi deti hongi, aur ho sakta hai unka andaaz shaayad kuchh alag sa hota hoga, jaise ki mujhe lagta hai ki ye aawaaz. . .

Noorie. . .     Noorie. . .

Lekin ye aawaaz to mere dil ki gehraaiyon mein tab se hi utar gayi thi. . .

Since, and so far, I vaguely remember to have heard this song playing on the radio in home and too on a dark rainy night. Maybe I was in half sleep when this song was playing on radio. Even today whenever I get to listen to this song, I have the same nostalgic feeling always

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

May be that time I didn’t even have this knowledge of who was singing but as I grew up and this voice also grew up over the years leaving behind very few yet unforgettable gems in the history of HFM. The most popular of them all, I think, must be this,

zindagi kin aa toote ladi ee
pyaar kar le ghadi do ghadi

Yes!! Today we are discussing Nitin Mukesh under this series of ‘Special Voices’. As I took this journey through his biography and filmography (or discography), as usual, I am filled with ‘nostalgia’ and the years and those songs which brings back many memories. Maybe he has sung very less songs in numbers but almost all of them are so special and unique that one cannot forget them easily.

Nitin Mukesh was born on 27th June, 1950, to a celebrity father who by then had established himself in HFM. There were days he saw his father struggling and they didn’t have enough money to pay even his school fees. And on the other hand, Mukesh, who unlike him wanted that his children get good higher education, sent Nitin to the London School of Economics. However, like his father Nitin was also not interested and not good in studies and hence requested his father to allow him to come back home and leave studies and pursue singing. There after Nitin used to accompany his father on all of his musical tours and stage programmes. He was doing this since he was nine.

As his father Mukesh used sing his own songs in these programmes he asked his son that he should sing other singers’ or specifically Rafi Saab’s songs. Nitin Mukesh remembering this has talked about how great his father was and how much both of them respect and loved Rafi Saab’s singing. It is said that Raj Kapoor wanted that Mukesh’s son should sing a song for his son Rishi in the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) and so Nitin had given his voice for Rishi Kapoor in this song.

Earlier Nitin Mukesh was mainly interested in singing and doing stage programmes only, however on insistence from his father he took on to singing in his movies and thus make a debut in singing with this song from ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974), a duet with Vani Jairam,

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

Moving forward with Gaapoochi Gaapoochi Gam Gam’ (‘Trishul’, 1978) and ‘Wo Aurat hai tu mehbooba’ from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ also of 1978. And reaching the popular heights with Zindagi ki naa toote ladi’ in ‘Kranti’ (1981). He continued the same magic with two songs from the movie ‘Nakhuda-1981’ of which “Suno Ik Baat Bolen” is already posted on the blog. After that very few playback songs, as I think he mainly got involved with doing stage shows only and singing ‘bhajans’.

During those years I was in Kota (Rajasthan) and I had bought his album on cassette, ‘Nehanjali’ by HMV which had ‘bhajans’ composed by Shekhar Sen. This album was released in 5/89 and it was added to my collection on 28.10.1989 (may be around ‘Diwali’ festival, if I am correct).

However the songs of ‘Eeshwar’ (1989) especially “Ram ji Ne Dhanush Toda”  and one song in particular from the movie ‘Clerk’ (1989) – “Rakh Gita Par Haath”, are those which were quite good and were appreciated well, with ‘Ye Paisa Bolta Hai” from ‘Kaala Baazaar’ being the most popular. Other favorites that I want to list are – “Tu Mujhe Suna Main Tujhe Sunaaun’ from ‘Chaandni’ (1989), and ‘So Gaya Ye Jahaan’  topping the popularity charts in the previous year of 1988. Among his other songs I like ‘Zindagi Ka Naam Dosti’ from ‘Khudgarz’ (1987}, and “Dil Ne Dil Se Kya Kahaa” from ‘Aaina’ (1993). However, as said earlier Nitin Mukesh had been continuing with his stage shows, and we can find the details of his latest tours on his website here.

On our blog so far, we have only four of Nitin Mukesh songs (all duets) posted. Out of the many of his songs that are yet to make it on the blog, and taking a ‘liberty’ for this series I have selected a song not from the decade of 1971-80 but, for this today’s post I have selected a ‘very special and lovely song’ from a 1989 movie, for this today’s special day too. This is a song from the 1989 movie ‘Santosh’, which is also making a debut on the blog today.

This song was lying dormant in my memory and got revived in 2010-2011, after many years, during a discussion with a friend.

Thereafter, when I joined this blog as a ‘lyrics contributor’ I had shared this song with Atul ji in 2012. In fact, thereafter I have shared all the songs of this movie with him. However they are yet to be posted. It is opportune that Nitin Mukesh’s birth anniversary is on 27th June’ which incidentally is a ‘special day’ for me too. 🙂

‘Santosh-1989’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. The star cast includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar and others. The story of this film was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat, assisted by Ashok Naik. Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi. Lyrics of this movie were written by Santosh Anand and Manoj Kumar. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film Was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie from IMDB is reproduced here below;

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union leader. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work. But then, she fails to keep her promise to the workers. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

The today’s song is a duet song sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Herma Malini respectively, while many other artists are present and can be seen in the picturization of this song. One can easily spot Sarika in this crowd of party-goers.

 

Song – Yun Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindgani (Santosh) (1989) Singer – Nitin Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar , Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Blog Day : 3631 Post No. : 14457

Today 27th June (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994) is the 79th birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman, whom we fondly remember as ‘Pancham’.

On this occasion here is a song from the 1985 Movie ‘Sitamgar’. Th film was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal. It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj, Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie. V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. The movie was passed by the Censor Board on 08.03.1985.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by RD Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

As the movie makes its debut on the blog today I can select only one song for today’s presentation. Going by the songs of this movie that I have already heard, I can say that some of them are very nice songs.

In 1985 the following movie with music composed by RD Burman were released,

  1. Rahi Badal Gaye
  2. Ram Tere Kitne Naam
  3. Hum Dono
  4. Ek Se Bhale Do
  5. Lava
  6. Zabardast
  7. Sitamgar
  8. Saagar
  9. Alag Alag
  10. Oonche Log
  11. Aawara Baap
  12. Arjun
  13. Hum Naujawan
  14. Shiva Kea Insaaf

From the above list one can easily understand that he was still there composing good music whereas it is said that he was passing through a lean phase and was overshadowed by other music directors during those years in the 1980s. Well, that is the subject for another post and so I am limiting my write-up for this presentation here only.

This movie also falls under one of my objective of ‘movie having the same title’. So far on the blog we have ‘Sitamgar’ from 1958 already launched earlier. As mentioned in HFGK Vol VI movie with same title was also released in 1934 & 1954, making it four times so where movies with same titles have been released. With today’s song, the film ‘Sitamgar’ of 1985 makes a debut on our blog.

Remembering Pancham Da today and his music let us move to the today’ song now. . .

 

Song – Hum Kitne Nadaan The Yaaro (Sitamgar) (1985) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
zindagi tera mujrim hoon main
ho sake to o maaf kar de
andhi raah ke andhe safar mein
beet gaya jeene ka zamaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
aap hi main jiska qaatil hoon
zindaa wo insaan hain mujhme
ham kitne naadaan thhe yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
ज़िन्दगी तेरा मुजरिम हूँ मैं
हो सके तो ओ माफ़ कर दे
अंधी राह के अंधे सफ़र में
बीत गया जीने का ज़माना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
आप ही मैं जिसका कातिल हूँ
ज़िंदा वो इंसान हैं मुझमे
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे …
आज ये जाना …

Blog Day : 3630 Post No. : 14455

Yesterday, 25th June was the birth anniversary of actor Raghuveer Yadav and we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. (In the anniversary list on our blog his birth date is mentioned as Jan 1st, however almost all of the internet sites that I came across during search for his biography have mentioned 25th June’1957 as his date of birth. So now I only have doubt about the year of his birth if it is correct, the reason is mentioned in the write up below.

Many of us movie Hindi Movie lovers are aware of Raghuveer Yadav and his multifaceted talent. I cannot exactly tell when my first interaction was watching his perform was but going by the chronology I think it was his TV serial ‘Mungerilal Ke Haseen Sapne’ which left an indelible mark on my mind. Later on, so far, I think I had watched very few of his movies, not even the newer ones too.

But still Raghuveer Yadav is one such name that brings many things to mind – unmatchable talent, his rustic-but so natural-and innocent acting which gets him immersed into the character and the one watching it gets involved so much so that when he came out of the movie hall he came with this character (which ever he is playing) all around oneself and it take time before one comes to normal after that. His acting does not only shake your mind and leave its imprints but leaves its magic on your ‘soul’ that is how I would like to put it in my words.

A story of simplicity, struggle, and an extra-ordinary achievement coming from an ordinary background. A living saga of dedication, hard work and immense talent. So, I think, to know why Raghuveer Yadav is what he is today, one must learn about his formative years mainly, which evolve him into being a ‘living legend’ today. I am approaching this post in a different manner without mentioning the name of the movies he has acted till now. Because as he himself has mentioned that his best is yet to come and whatever he has done till now, he feels, could have been done much better than that. As an ‘actor’ he thinks, he cannot achieve what he wants to achieve in this ‘single life’ and needs ‘one (or may be more)’ lives to achieve that. The journey is on. . .

Raghuveer Yadav was born on in Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh on 25th June, 1957. His father was a farmer in a small village near Jabalpur.  Among five siblings – three sisters and two brothers – he was the second after his elder sister. Since his childhood he was fond of singing even though none from his family was even remotely related with singing. Given the background of living around farms and learning in a small village school where the classes were conducted below a tree and sitting on the wooden planks, it was natural for him to get attracted towards the nature and maybe he developed that habit of observing the happenings around since those days. He used to take his cattle or grazing around and travelling bullock-carts.

As he was not interested much in studies he somehow completed his education till Higher Secondary (as told by himself in his interview in ‘Guftagoo’ on Rajya Sabha TV). When he was asked to learn Science in Higher Secondary, in apprehension of failing in exams he planned to run away from home and ‘fortunately’ so there was a person in his village who used to run-away from home at regular intervals and had become a ‘professional bhagouda’. Raghuveer run away with him and they reach at the person’s Uncle. After the money stolen from (his father’s pocket) was finished Raghuveer’s friend returned back to his village. However Raghuveer decided to stay back and joined a ‘Parsi theatre group’ in those years and started singing there. In Parsi theatre the ability to sing was a very necessary qualification to get any work there.

Well in those years (1967 as per him i.e. why I think his year of birth should be earlier than 1957, if we consider he ran away from home when he was doing higher secondary.). He got the job of singing in between the intervals during the change of ‘scenes’. He used to get Rs.2.50 per day or even Rs.1.00/1.50 sometimes then and thus had to be without food many times. When the survival became difficult and the singing opportunities were getting reduced he has to take on ‘acting’ at the behest of the owner of the group. There he also started learning, writing and speaking ‘Urdu’.

After working with this ‘play group’ for almost six years and travelling through various places for doing plays, Raghuveer finally come to Lucknow and started doing ‘Puppet’ shows. And after that he landed in Delhi and joined the National School of Drama. And, from here under the baton of Ibrahim Alkazi he learned and learned a lot about theatre, set designing, craft, music and singing, and his journey till reaching here had already given him lot of insights on ‘human life’ too.

He was a part of the NSD Repertory when he got his first opportunity to work in movies and thus his entry in movies happened with ‘Massey Saheb-1985’, which fetch him two International awards too. He was awarded the Silver Peacock for best acting at the 11th International Film Festival of India in 1987.

He always wanted to be a singer and has a passion for music. He plays many instruments and even builds some on his own. Singing and Music has remained his strong passion and that is why in trying and testing times or in depression he always resorted to music which gives him peace and satisfaction. During his interviews he has mentioned that the music during the ‘sixties’ was his favourite, however so far he didn’t mention any of the Bollywood songs which he liked most. It will be interesting to know which songs his favourite during those years have been and which motivated him if any. Or may be since he was mainly attracted towards theatre, the poetry-based songs and/or folk songs remained his main attraction. He also fondly remembers his days of theatre in ‘Delhi’ and all his friends there whom he missed a lot. (I would request readers to watch and listen to his singing of ‘Delhi’ and ‘Majnu’ in his interviews which is very touching).

Given the hardships he faced in life and reaching the heights where he is today cannot be summed up in one article here. It required a detailed biography which I am sure will be interesting and inspirational for the many who wants to achieve a ‘purpose’ in life.

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Aasmaan Se Giraa’ (1991). This film is directed by Pankaj Parashar for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’. Pankaj Parashar also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. Neena Bhatnagar was the additional screenplay writer of this movie. It had Raghuveer Yadav, Abhishek, Kalpana Iyer, Rakesh Shrivastava, Sunil Ranade, Navtej Hundal, Ranjit Shah, Kurush Deboo, DK Mathur, DN Shaily and Sanjeev Shah. Sheeba, Tisca Arora, Rajesh Puri, Anupam Kher, Sridevi, Anil Kapoor and Amjad Khan make ‘guest appearances’ in this movie. Commentary in the movie was done by Shaban Azmi. Anubhav Sinha was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie, and V Ramesh Babu was the Chief Assistant Editor. Editing for this movie was done by Afaque Husain.  Choreography of this movie was done by Vijay Oscar, Bhupendra Singh, Pankaj Parashar. Bijon Das Gupta was the Art Director of this movie. Raghuveer Yadav, Shailendra Singh, Suresh Wadkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Hema and Abhishek gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Kamlesh Pandey was the lyricist for this movie and he also wrote the dialogues for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Louis Banks.

It was passed by the Censor Board on 30.08.1991 (but seems to be released in theatres on 04.09.1992 as most of the internet sources mentioned it). The following synopsis about this movie and brief about the Director of this movie Pankaj Parashar has been taken as given with the YouTube link (Ultra Kids Zone, posted on 06.08.2016) of this movie;

A young prince is trained for a time when he will grow up to become king. The lonely boy is frustrated at being kept secluded while being taught the art of statesmanship by great scholars. One day he finds a strange little man from another planet. He names his new friend Trishanku and the two exchange views about their own worlds. Trishankhu is homesick and wishes to return back to his planet. The two-escape trying to find ways for Trishankhu to go back. On their journey they develop a deep bonding and it is hard for Trishankhu to let go.

This heartwarming film by popular TV and film director Pankaj Parashar stars a galaxy of Bollywood stars in guest appearances including Sridevi, Amjad Khan, Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Pankaj Parashar A reputed director of films and TV series. He is an alumnus of FTII, Pune. His diploma film ‘Malfunction’ for the institute won him a Filmfare Award for Best Documentary. Since then he has held the directorial chair for many reputed films most notable being ‘Jalwa’ (1987) and ‘Chaal Baaz’ (1989) with the latter winning him another Filmfare award. He also made the immensely popular TV serial ‘Karamchand’, India’s first detective series in 1985. Currently Pankaj divides his time making ad films and working on his next feature film

I remember having watched this movie on ‘Doordarshan’ may be in 1994-95, and since then I could not forget it. I was searching for its songs since many years now and particularly I liked the other song of this movie very much and I and my cousins used to discuss about it and sing it whenever we used to get together. The movie also has some beautiful locations of Rajasthan and this could be the other factor why it is close to my heart as I was in Rajasthan then from 1989-1996 🙂 though I watched the movie on TV during visit to hometown in Maharashtra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s wonderful-philosophical song, sung by Raghuveer Yadav and Master Abhishek, which I sincerely hope you too will like and enjoy.

Song – Ghar Jaana Hai (Aasmaan Se Gira) (1991) Singer – Raghuveer Yadav, Master Abhishek, Lyrics – Kamlesh Pandey, MD – Louis Banks

Lyrics

kitni gol hai duniya teri
reh gaya main chakraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai ae
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai ae

hamaara itihaas mahaan hai
mahaa puroshon ki khaan hai
itihaas?
ye kya hota hai
ek tha sikandar
aadmi tha ya bandar
ha ha ha
yunaan ka raja tha
sikandar mahaan
sapna tha uska
loote saara jahaan
desh pardesh
uske jhande taley aate gaye
raja maharaja sabhi sar jhukaate gaye
mere bhaai
ye jhanda kya hota hai
dande ke upar ek kapda hota hai
jo haar jaata hai
to ban jaata hai ghulam
jeetnewaale ke jhande ko
karna padta hai salaam

samjhaa aa

sab ka alag alag jhanda hai
jhande ke andar danda hai
jisko guroor aata hain
apna danda dikhlaata hai
jhande se jhanda ladta hai
aadmi kat’ta marta hai
har ek desh jhande se lais
jiska danda usi ki bhains
isiliye to dete naara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara

sikandar ne lekin
saari duniya ko jeeta
achchha hota
agar wo ghar baith kar chaai peeta
chai peenewaale
itihaas nahin banaate

yahi agar itihaas hai to
kya karna isey dohraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

hamaari sanskriti hai bahut puraani
hamaare yahaan huye hai
bade bade gyaani
mere bhaai
kya hota hai gyaan
kya hota hai gyaani
gyaani wo jisne jaani
aatma kya hai
partmaatma kya hai
ye sab moti moti kitaabon mein likha hai
kya likha hai
aatma kya hai
aatma amar hai
chaurasi lakh yoniyon ka safar hai
na koyi jeeta hai
na marta hai
aatma bas nayaa roop dharta hai

koyi jeeta na koyi marta hai
koyi farq nahin padta hai

phir to koyi kisi ko maare
begunaah saare hatyaare
naa koyi khooni naa koi laash
mujrim judge sab ek hi saath

janam janam ka pheraa hai
chidiya rain basera hai

janam janam ke phere mein
main rah gaya chakkar kha ke
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

कितनी गोल है दुनिया तेरी
रह गया मैं चकराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारा इतिहास महान है
महा पुरूषों कि खान है
इतिहास?
ये क्या होता है

एक था सिकंदर
आदमी था या बन्दर
ह ह ह
यूनान का राजा था
सिकंदर महान
सपना था उसका
लुटे सारा जहां
देश परदेश
उसके झंडे तले आते गए
राजा महाराजा सभी सर झुकाते गए
मेरे भाई
ये झंडा क्या होता है
डंडे के ऊपर एक कपडा होता है
जो हार जाता है
तो बन जाता है गुलाम
जीतनेवाले के झंडे को
करना पड़ता है सलाम
समझा ॰ ॰ ॰

सब का अलग अलग झंडा है
झंडे के अन्दर डंडा है
जिसको गुरूर आता हैं
अपन डंडा दिखलाता है
झंडे से झंडा लड़ता है
आदमी कटता मरता है
हर एक देश झंडे से लैस
जिसका डंडा उसी कि भैंस
इसीलिए तो देते नारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा

सिकंदर ने लेकिन
सारी दुनिया को जीता
अच्छा होता
अगर वो घर बैठ कर चाय पीता
चाय पीनेवाले
इतिहास नहीं बनाते

यही अगर इतिहास है तो
क्या करना इसे दोहराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारी संस्कृति बहुत पुरानी है
हमारे यहाँ हुए है
बड़े बड़े ग्यानी
मेरे भाई
क्या होता है ज्ञान
क्या होता है ग्यानी
ग्यानी वो जिसने जानी
आत्मा क्या है
परमात्मा क्या है
ये सब मोटी मोटी किताबों में लिखा है
क्या लिखा है
आत्मा क्या है
आत्मा अमर है
चौरासी लाख योनियों का सफ़र है
ना कोई जीता है
ना कोई मरता है
आत्मा बस नया रूप धरता है
कोई जीता न कोई मरता है
कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता है

फिर तो कोई किसी को मारे
बेगुनाह सारे हत्यारे
ना कोई खुनी ना कोई लाश
मुजरिम जज सब ही साथ

जनम जनम का फेरा है
चिड़िया रेन बसेरा है

जनम जनम के फेरे में
मैं रह गया चक्कर खा के

आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

Blog Day : 3624 Post No. : 14445

Greetings to dear Atul ji, and best wishes for many many happy returns of today.

The 1977 film ‘Chhaila Baabu’ is joining the ‘Yippeee Club’ of movies or ‘movies having all their songs covered’ on the blog. Indeed, a long wait for me and particularly for this song which was the first that I shared when I was still only a ‘year-old’ contributor on the blog. Other songs of this movie which I shared later were lucky and got posted before the today’s song. This song is the one which I cannot forget since my childhood, may be because this being a ‘mother-son’ song. I must be 9-10 years old when I had watched this movie with my parents in my childhood.

The part-I of this song and even the part-II is on screen performed by Achala Sachdev whom we mainly remember for playing a mother or thereafter grandmother in Yash Raj films. When I glance through the list of the films she acted in I realized that I have watched many of them but cannot recollect now.

Also I found that not much information is available about her on the domain (except there is page on wiki about her) and mainly other articles which were posted after she passed away on 30.12.2012 , and about how she was ignored by the film personalities in her last days. May be our seniors can do a detailed post on her with one of the songs performed by her on screen. Or maybe it is there and I am not aware, if so, please forgive me.

As I am not aware of her initial films and whether she got a lead role or second lead and if at all there are any songs which she performed on screen, except the another one, that I know, is from the 1970 film ‘Heer Ranjha’, where all the Bhabhi’s dance on their devar’s (Rajkumar’s) marriage preparations – ‘Naache Ang Ve . . .’ a beautiful composition by Madan Mohan ji.

Achala Sachdev was born in Peshawar (now in Pakistan) on 3rd May 1920. She acted in over 130 films (as per info on wiki). She began her filmi career with ‘Fashionable Wife’ in 1938 and ‘Na Tum Jaano na Ham’ (2002) was her last film. She died on April 30, 2012 at Pune. She was 91 then.

The move ‘Chhaila Babu’ was Produced by Shomu Mukherjee and Directed by Joy Mukherjee. It was a ‘suspense thriller’. It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, accompanied by Zeenat Aman, Asrani, Ranjeet, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev, Macmohan, P Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor and Om Shivpuri. Since in my earlier write ups about the songs of this movie I have already mentioned about the details of this movie and my nostalgia associated with its’ songs, and so I will not repeat it here.

But something that I would like to mention here is about Joy Mukherjee as a ‘director’ of this movie. Earlier I had read about his directing the movie ‘Humsaaya’ (1968), but I had forgotten about it. Though I must mention here that I had watched many of Joy Mukherjee’s movie in my teen years when I was studying in 11th -12th. And I liked all his movies very much and have watched them repeatedly; especially ‘Shagird’ (1967), ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ (1963), ‘Door Ki Aawaaz’ (1964), and ‘Love In Tokyo’ (1966). In those days i.e. 1983-85, old movie were still being screened in theatres sometime in four shows or noon shows only and they used to run packed houses. Specially in the city of Akola (Maharashtra) (CP & Berar circuit for movies) many old movies used to run packed houses and I watched many old movies during those years there. ‘Ziddi’ (1964) I think I watched on Doordarshan.

I got the VCD of ‘Ek Baar Muskuraa Do’ (1972) just four-five years back from an ‘online’ store. Then I had also watched ‘Love in Shimla’ (1960) during my school days during the weekly screening of movie in our ‘colony recreation club’. And its song Alif Zabar Aa Alif Zer Ae Alif Pesh O ’ has been in my memory since then. I do not remember correctly now if I had watched his ‘Ek Musaafir Ek Haseena’ (1962), but since I have the cassette of this movie, as I like the songs of this movie very much, and maybe I had watched some of its songs on TV, it also remains one of my favorites.

Coming to the songs of his movies – which was another main factor for me to watch his movies repeatedly. Our in house Encyclopedia Shri Arun ji had already done a detailed post on Joy Mukherjee here , while presenting a song from his movie ‘Love In Bombay’ (2013(1971)). This was Joy’s third directorial venture after ‘Humsaaya’ & ‘Chhaila Babu’.

HFGK Vol V mentions that today’s song in three parts and it noted down the first part as a ‘happy version’, whereas from the song one can guess and take it as a ‘sad song’ or ‘missing the beloved song. The first part in its picturization shows the mother (Achala Sachdev) remembering the ‘happy memories’ while singing this song searching for her lost son (Rajesh Khanna). And the in the second part while only the ‘mukhda’ of the first version is repeated only, the third part is in the voice of Kishore Kumar and starts with different lines. However, since HFGK mention this song in three version it was required to watch this movie again and clear the confusion.
[Ed Note: In this presentation, the parts 2 and 3, as mentioned in HFGK, are together presented as part II, as per the video clips.]

When Atul ji was in a ‘Yippeeee’ mode again during the first four months of this year I had sent him reminder for this song and also with a request to throw light on this song if possible. Finally, a week before I watched this movie online (most uncomfortable way to watch a movie for me, but then … we have to 😊).

The 1st part of the song is where the mother, Achala Sachdev is searching for her son, who ‘bachpan mein bichhad gaya’. It includes flashback of the mother-child playing – ‘happy memories’ included 😊. Now when this child grows up as Rajesh Khanna, he remembers this song and use to sing it on the ‘mouth organ’ gifted to him by his mother on his birthday. The second part of Lata for this song is only a repeat of first few lines of the earlier part 1 of this song. And the third part is the Kishore Kumar version of this song, in which the mother-son get re-united.

The earlier songs from the movie are posted on our blog, as per the details given below;

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 69 # Singer – Kishore Kumar #
(Voice of Kishore Kumar in Seventies)
———————————————–——————–

‘5 Rifles’ (1974) – (‘पांच रायफल’) as the movie’s Censor Certificate mentions it or (‘५ रायफलें’) as the movies titles mention it – was produced, directed and written by IS Johar. It was a Shanker BC presentation for Delux Productions (India). The movie has a ‘U’ certificate, still its online version requires a confirmation of age 🙂 I don’t know why? anyway I had to watch only the title credits for information 😉 . The film was passed by censors on 09.08.1974.

It had Ambika Johar, Rakesh Khanna, Shahi Kapoor, Anil Johar, Kamal Kapoor, Veena, Sapru, Satyadip, Murad, Keti Irani, Keshto Mukherjee, IS Johar, Ravi, Ram Avtar, Chanda, Qamar Sarhadi, Nazeer Kashmiri, Kedar Sehgal, Bairam, Bali Jajani, Omi, and Master Anu. Editing for this movie was done by M.S. Shinde. DR Thakkar and Faruk Kaiser were the associate directors of this movie. Darius Gotla was the Executive Producer of this movie, whereas Seeroo Daryanani (I think it is one person only) was the associate producer.

This movie had total six songs, including the famous qawwaali – “Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom Sharaabi” which is already posted on our blog. The qawwaliis written by Nazaan Sholapuri while Aziz Nazaan was the composer and the singer. For the remaining five songs, four are written by Rajendra Krishna and one by Indeevar. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. The movie titles under singers mention the name of Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar only.

HFGK Vol V liststhe following songs in the for this movie,

  • Wo kya cheez hai maharaj… duniya ke banaane waale ne (Kishore Kumar)
  • Pyaar ke patang ki dor jiske haath hai (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Jab se sarkaar ne nashaabandi tod di (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Teraa husn Allaah Allaah teraa roop Raam Raam (Kishore Kumar)
  • Malmal mein badan mora chamke (Asha Bhonsle)

and for the famous qawwaali included in this movie it mentions a note;

In this movie one popular qawwali ‘Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi (Singer-Composer: Aziz Nazan/Lyricist – Nazan Sholapuri) was picturized on Ambika Johar in this movie.

I wonder how Ambika Johar would have felt lip syncing this qawaali in thick and heavy set male voice. 😉 In his write-up presenting the above qawwaali song Atul ji has already mentioned the following-

In reality, this qawwaali was not created for this movie. This qawwaali was created by Aziz Nazaan for his mushairas. He was the singer as well as the music director of this qawwaali. 

However, after going through details of this movie mentioned in HFGK Vol-V, I was curious to know where the credit for this qawwaali have been mentioned in the titles of this movie. It appears in the ‘Assistants’ section – for ‘music assistants’ – mentioning Babla as ‘assistant’ and Parte as ‘arranger’, Conducted by Frank Fernand, followed by mentioning that ‘Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom’ by ‘Courtesy the Gramophone Co. India Ltd and Aziz Nazan, lyrics Nazan Sholapuri’, and as we all know that ironically the film today is identified with this famous qawwaali only and its other songs didn’t even get noticed or are remembered today if I am not wrong.

I could not find information about the plot / story of the film. A comment on the internet from a reader suggests that the movie was about a fictitious story set in the backdrop of the battle for freedom. The story is about a kingdom in an unspecified time era, which conquered by a foreign power, and the efforts of the royal family and a handful of activists to wrest back their freedom.

I had vague memories of watching this film in my childhood with my parents. However, I only remember the ‘monkeys with the rifles’ and over the years after that, reading about this film, I got to know that there were the ‘look-alikes’ of ‘Rajesh Khanna’ and ‘Shashi Kapoor’ in this film. But the one memory that has been permanently associated with this film’s name is the famous ‘qawwaali’. It was very popular in those years and continues to be so for many years. It was frequently heard over loud speakers then.

Almost six years back I came across this song sung by Kishore Kumar and on checking I find that this was from this movie ‘Five Rifles’. Listening to this song give a me a feeling of hearing it many years back on radio or elsewhere. I had shared this song with Atul ji then, but somehow it remained to be posted for this day today 🙂

So, fortunately I get to share this song from this movie sung by Kishore Kumar which is a ‘patriotic song’ in disguise of a romantic song. On screen it is lip synced by Rakesh Khanna who is also trying to enact the mannerisms of the Superstar Rajesh Khanna. The situation of the song; (after watching this part of the movie having this song)

Rakesh Khanna a ‘deshbhakt’ is in jail where the officer Khotu’s wife ‘Madam Khotu’ (?) (don’t know who the actress is) is having a crush on him, goes to meet him and get him released from the jail. Since, her husband is eyeing over Rakesh’s fiancée Rajkumari – of Rakesh Khanna. So, she is doing a ‘tit for tat’ to her husband. She takes our hero to her ‘mahal’ and orders him to sing a song praising her beauty.

‘Mr. Rakesh, hamaare husn ki taarif karo’ … warna ‘khatm kar diye jaaoge’

As our hero is still not ready to surrender her, she gives him a final call

Tumko apni jaan bhi pyaari nahin’

‘Mujhe apne desh se jyaada kuchh bhi pyaara nahin’

 ‘Jhooth mat bolo’ …

Madam Khotu finally gets the hero’s ‘mangetar’ there,

‘Agar iski zindagi chaahte ho to …’

On the other side, the ‘mangetar’ also threatens the hero of losing his love if he sings a song. As our hero is in a dilemma, his eyes fall upon the map of India on the wall behind Madam Khotu’s ‘sinhaasan’. This gives him an idea, and he improvises, singing a ‘patriotic song’ for the country, disguised as a song praising Madam Khotu’s ‘beauty’.

Here is this beautiful song sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Lyrics are by Rajendra Krishna. And I think I can mention this here that after the qawwaali of this film was posted on the blog on 30th Jun 2009, this song is coming on to the blog today after a gap of almost NINE years.

Wishing herewith all ‘Eid Mubarak’ today let us now enjoy this song …

[Author’s Note: – I had noted one additional stanza at the time of sending this song in 2012, and noted that its video is not available. This additional stanza is given after the main song. I could not find its audio or video even now. Also, I do not remember the source of this additional stanza now.]

[Ed Note: We already have a category on this blog named “Dance Under Duress”; with this song, we now introduce a similar category “Sing Under Duress”. 🙂 ]

Blog Day : 3609 Post No. : 14395

Today 5th June 2018 is World Environment Day. This year’s theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’!! And this year our own country India is the host for celebration of this day world-wide.

Last year I presented a post here on the blog celebrating this day, with a relevant couplet paying tribute to mother nature and mentioning some songs from Hindi movies which have used nature as a symbol/metaphor and direct reference. For this year’s theme, I don’t think any song relevant to this or either relevant to pollution, is available in our Hindi Movies. There is one song which I can relate to my favourite subject – scrap and its disposal – can be cited. It is penned by none other than Sahir Saab, the song being “Khaali Dabba Khaali Botal Le Le Mere Yaar“.

Few years back I had penned a poem – a ‘self-narrative’ by a ‘polybag (Panni) ’ and if our editors allow it can be reproduced here. The poem is in Hindi and for today’s presentation I have got its translation into English done by my daughter Ashwini.

मैं एक पन्नी हूँ और भटक रही हूँ यहाँ से वहाँ,
वैसे ही जैसे मेरे ‘प्लास्टिक’ परिवार के बाकी सदस्य,
फ़ैल रहे है  डगर-डगर और भटक रहे हैं नगर-नगर,
सह रहीं हूँ  मैं लोगों कि बेदर्दी जो मुझे देखके मुंह फेर लेते हैं,
कोई आए, उठाये मुझे, और ले जाए मुझे मेरे सही मक़ाम तक,
मुझे भी कोई गले से लगाये और प्यार से पूछे के ‘तेरा हाल क्या है’
मेरे और भी भाई-बहन हैं जो मेरी तरह ही दर दर कि ठोकरें खा रहें हैं,
कल ‘पीवीसी’(PVC) सुना रहा था अपनी दर्द भरी दास्तान,
क्यूं नहीं बचाते लोग मुझसे अपनी जान,
क्या अपने बच्चों की और भविष्य कि भी चिंता नहीं हैं इंसान को,
जो हमें सहेज कर, कर दे अलग, और रखे साफ़ अपने घर-परिसर,
कितनी निर्दयता से लोग हमें मिला देते हैं एक दूसरे के साथ,
कभी मैं काँटों में फस जाऊं , कभी किसी पेड़ कि टहनी से लिपट जाऊं,
कभी नालों में बह जाऊं और अटक जाऊं किसी ‘डिब्बे’ या ‘पीपे’ के मुहाने पे,
कभी पानी पे तैरती रहूँ यूँही और बन जाऊं कारण गन्दगी का,
या फिर सडती रहूँ नदी-ताल-तलैया की सतह पर और प्रदूषित कर दूं सब जल,
आज कल तो आप जहां भी देखोगे मुझे हर जगह पर पाओगे ,
खेत-खालिहनोंमें-अपने आसपास के परिसर में, अत्र-तत्र-सर्वत्र- मैं ही मैं हूँ,
यूँही उड़ते-फिरते, गिरते-पड़ते कट रहा हैं सफर – मंजिल कि नहीं खबर,
मुझे अपना लो, मुझे चाहो – मुझे समझो, मुझसे प्यार करो,
पहुंचा कर मुझे मेरे ‘मोक्ष’ तक, बचालो अपनी ‘वसुंधरा’ को,
कर रक्षण ‘पर्यावरण’ का, निभाओ ‘फ़र्ज़’ अपने ‘इंसान’ होने का !

(Translation in English provided by Ashwini Scrapwala)

I am a ‘polybag’ wandering places,
Wandering just like the other members of my species are,
Spreading throughout and travelling into the unknown,
Getting ignored with no hopes of getting cared and cured
Yet I keep wishing, for someone to pick me up in their loving arms,
I wish someone would take me to my rightful ‘disposal’, the place where I belong.
I wonder where my siblings are,
Maybe they’re wretched just like me,
Maybe they too have a gruesome story to tell
Like PVC had to tell this other day;
“Oh! the ignorant Humans!
Why aren’t you saving yourselves from me?
Don’t you care about your future?
The future of you and your progeny…”
I wish you would have kept us away from your surroundings
Instead of letting I and my specie get all messed up with each other.
I myself have been through a lot,
Be it getting trapped in cluster of spikes
Or being wrapped up around the branch of a tree!
I’ve floated in the drains, muffled over cans and ducts
Just to become the culprit of everything filthy!
I am that tramp, who keeps wandering constantly,
Rotting through rivers and pools,
Ending up spreading pollution everywhere,
You ask me where I’ll be found,
I am Omnipresent I say!
Flying, crashing through nowhere
Hoping for some day ‘someone’ will come,
And take me to my ‘appropriate disposal’
Please embrace me, love me, care me
Help me to reach – ‘my final destination’
Take me where I belong and save your Habitat,
Save your mother, Oh human,
Save your nature, Save ‘mother earth’

I wish our movie makers make more films on subjects like sustainable living, pollution and other environmental issues. In 2014, I had attempted to write a meaningful poem using Hindi movie titles on the occasion of World Environment Day in 2014. I am sharing herewith the link for this post.

Dharti Kahe Pukaar Ke… Jiyo Aur Jeene Do

For today’s occasion, again I have very small poem/song from a very recent movie “Kalpvriksh” (कल्पवृक्ष) aka “The Wishing Tree” from 2017. This song is penned by Gulzar Saab. I came across this movie during my air journey from Mumbai to Ethiopia while travelling to Kenya. I always find such movies very close to my heart and I like them very much. “Kalpvriksh” is presented by Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change for Rhombus Films Production. It is produced by Raajaysh Chetwal and Directed by Manika Sharma, who also wrote the screenplay and dialogues for this movie.

The star cast includes Shabana Azmi, Prithvi Zutshi, Saurabh Shukla, Rajat Kapoor, and many other child artists and other artists. The credits in the beginning of the movie does not mention the names. Lyrics (for other songs) are written by Anil Pandey and Kausar Munir. Music is composed by Sandesh Shandilya. Amitabh Bachchan has lent his voice in the beginning of the movie and Gulzar Saab’s name is mentioned with Special Thanks in the titles. Editing of this movie was done by Kaushik Das.

A brief about this movie copies from the YT link of the trailer of the movie is given below;

‘THE WISHING TREE’ is a magical, inspirational and an extremely entertaining story of five children in a hill-station who come together to save their ‘wishing tree’ from being cut by vested interests. The film is extremely lively, entertaining, endearing and engrossing so that the underlying message to protect trees and environment is seamlessly driven home.

Let us now listen and enjoy the beautiful, poignant and thoughtful verses by none other than Gulzaar Saab!!!
Other songs of this movie are also very good and I like them very much 😊.

[Auth Note : An interesting aside – since its inception in 1974 the ‘World Environment Day’ never had ‘Save Trees’ as its theme except in 1986 when the theme was ‘A Tree for Peace’ 😊.]

 


Song – Darakht Jab Sochte Hain (Kalpvriksh) (2017) Singer – Gulzar, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Sandesh Shandilya

Lyrics

darakht sochte hain jab
to phool aate hain
wo dhoop mein dubo ke ungliyaan
khayaal likhte hai
lachakti shaakhon par
to rang rang labz chunte hain
khushboo’on se bolte hain
aur bulaate hain

hamaara shauq dekhiye
ke gardanein hi kaat lete hain
jahaan kahin mehakta hai koyi

दरख़्त सोचते हैं जब
तो फूल आते हैं
वो धुप में डूबो के उंगलियाँ
ख़याल लिखते हैं
लचकती शाखों पर
तो रंग रंग लब्ज़ चुनते हैं
खुशबूओं से बोलते हैं
और बुलाते हैं

हमारा शौक़ देखिये
के गर्दनें ही काट लेते हैं
जहां कहीं महकता हैं कोई

Blog Day : 3608 Post No. : 14392

This is one of the subjects that I longed to share. And since the subject is totally different from normal Hindi movie story topics viz. love stories, lost and found, family drama etc. I had to find relevant songs which would be either directly relevant to the subject or at least those which can easily convey the message that I intend to put in my write up/s. Though the first song that I selected came easily and that too during a real life experience when I was thinking of this topic. However the first song in this series is not that one but another song which I came across later when I was still working on the write up.

It has been almost more than three and half years now when I thought about writing on this subject i.e. ‘road-traffic’ in our country. Or putting it differently, ‘how we Indians actually are when we are on road. . .’ or more precisely it’s about our ‘civic sense on the roads’.

Over the years in this journey of my life, I have got this opportunity to travel to many places in India because of my job postings and have got to observe and learn a lot about how we, the people of India are actually when we are on the road and how we are when we are travelling in various modes of road transport.

When I start writing on the subject and gather all that I wish to write, the final article became too long, so I decided to split it in smaller articles (as rightly guided by one of our beloved seniors) and thus present the subject under a mini-series. But that will also require relevant songs from Hindi movies and though at that time I had only one or two in mind, over this period I marked one more which will fit with this subject.

I am herewith taking on this new mini series and presenting this first post on our blog – ‘Beta Sambhal Ke Chalnaa’.

Before moving on to the main article let me mention here that personally I believe there always is space for improvement in every sphere of life, and while we should move positively on every aspect, we should also assess our shortcomings time to time and these ‘shortcomings’ should not be treated as a ‘negativity’. Instead they should be taken as subjects of introspection and they should be our future plans to improve in positive direction with innovations and targeting an overall development and improvement in ‘standard of living’ and ‘quality of life’.

This post is actually about my thoughts which I was going through when the discussions for ‘smart cities’ were in the news then. I refer to an experience from around November-December 2014. At that time I was in Kachchh (Gujarat). My daily commute to work was 2×60 kms on public transport (ST bus) mainly. As it took almost an hour and half to reach my stations both ends I was getting enough time to read something, or take a nap sometime in addition to the music being played in the bus.

Travelling through the roads I was always thinking of how the roads in the developed countries must be like and what road conditions and road transport and ‘traffic discipline’ they must be maintaining and following there. What is the situation in cities of other countries? Or how the other smart cities in the world are like?

As an optimist I began to imagine how our country would be after the initiative of the ‘smart cities’. How it would be affecting our daily routine life and our public transport, specifically would it change our ‘Roads’ (the word ‘Road’ here has many connotations)? What will actually change when the cities go smart? And most importantly will it be helpful to save the precious lives lost on the ‘Indian Roads’ every year due to accidents? Will it be helpful to prevent ‘human potential’ losses of the nation or will it save the lives of young promising and aspiring youths who lose their precious lives only because of the sheer negligence and carelessness, their own, as well as of others?

In and around the town I was living there, road-accidents were a regular occurrence; there was not a single day when the newspaper was without the reporting of an accident. Many aspiring youngsters, senior citizens, children lost their life in fatal road accidents. The industrialization there was followed by increase in cargo movements and so heavy trailers and containers were a regular part of traffic.

And so, sometimes the tipping over of huge containers on turnings was also a daily feature. I wondered how the licenses were given to young inexperienced drivers, who drove the big containers? Was there any assessment of the ‘maturity content’ of a person issuing licenses?  Certainly a young guy of an age of 18-20 would not have the expertise and experience of a driver of an older age.

During that period, I used to regularly tweet about the accidents there and precious lives lost on the road. In my case while I would criticize the bad practices, I do also always appreciate whenever there is an improvement or efforts initiated in positive directions, may be at a smaller scale. There is always a space for improvement, we have to find it. . .

So among this ‘criticism’ of the ‘system’ by me, there was one incident that had an indication of ‘good sense prevailing’ and a sign of ‘improvement’ happening, which I think I must note here.

One evening as I was on my return journey from office, there happened to be an accident on the road and it took place just a few minutes before when I was passing by from that place. A trailer carrying a container had toppled over and its driver was injured. Fortunately no other vehicle or person was around it and coming from either side so there was no major mishap or fatality.  But still the driver had broken his leg and trapped inside the cabin. People rushed to rescue the driver.

While I and my friend rushed towards the injured to help, somebody guided me to make a call to the emergency services on 108. A little hesitant at first, I made call on this number and soon I started receiving calls from SHQ & DHQ asking about the exact location of the accident and as they keep tracking with me, exactly at the 13th minute from the call was made, an ambulance was standing at the accident site, ready to provide medical aid to the injured.

I can never forget this. Though the town was not far away from the accident site, still the action taken by the authorities was commendable and I was very happy.

On the other day when I was travelling back to home, it was already around nine in the evening by then, and I was dreaming about the ‘Smart City’ and the roads this city would have. As the bus entered the town, on the main road of the town there were cattle on the road sitting and relaxing, without bothering about this world. The driver of our bus was working hard to find the way and blowing the horn continuously and driving the bus in a zigzag fashion and songs were already playing on the music system in the bus. . .  That song we shall enjoy in next post of this series 🙂

At work places, to ensure ‘safety’ we do have safety and cautionary slogans prominently displayed in the area to educate and disciplined the work force. The song that I present today, does have this ‘cautionary message’ but going further its other lines are like a ‘threat’. 🙂

I present this ‘soft and mild warning’ song which says ‘beta sambhal ke chalna’. . ., to start with a ‘smart message’. 🙂

It seems that the video of this song is not available, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song and this movie ‘Mr John -1959’

‘Mr John’ (1959) was directed by Inder for NK Productions, Bombay. It was produced by Nigam. It had Shyama, Johny Walker, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Iftikhar, Krishnakumari, Mumtaz, Tuntun, Mohan Choti, Kamal Mohan, Sampson, Uma Dutt, Ravi, Champak Lala, Rashid, Daraz, Wahid, Genius, Tiwari, Ramlal, Anil, Singh, Jani, Gaus, Tarun Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Ajit, B Fazal Kareem, Mukhtar, and Pt Baijnath.

The film has seven songs penned by Jan Nisar Akhtar and composed by N.Datta. Two songs of this film are already posted on the blog. Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi.

बेटा संभल के चलना

बेटा संभल के चलना

पैदल जो फिरना है

सीने पे चलता है
मोटर का पहिया
पैदल जो फिरना है
किस्मत में भैय्या
सीने पे चलता है
मोटर का पहिया
दिल को पड़े कुचलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
अहा आ

बेटा संभल के चलना
ओ बेटा संभल के चलना

My personal opinion is that wherever and whatever field we are we should have a purpose and we should contribute to enrich that surroundings we are, for however long or short a period we are there. It was not that I was so ‘intelligent’ since my younger days. The thinking is a result of my experience or you can say ‘mistakes’ 😊 which have taught me a lot and yes ‘age should not be the price one should pay for being experience’ (as Wise people say). But some people like me took years to realize the ‘world around’ and learn only from mistakes 😊

Ok, whatever it is!! Here on this blog ever since I have been associated with, I am trying to do so. And simultaneously I continue to keep adding something. As and when I notice it, I also try to bring to the notice of our ‘editors’ the small or big corrections and or missing links which we need to correct and or re-install. Well, it is a different matter, that since they are much busier and already loaded with lot of requests and mails, sometimes my requests just keep lying in the mail boxes (may be for years or more 😊).

 Few days back when I was browsing through my pending list I noticed the song under discussion today was pending since long. And when I just glance through some statistics of interest, I find that sharing this song with a post is going to serve some purpose.

When I was drafting this post the number of Kishore Kumar solo songs posted on the blog was at 498, so I thought I should push one ahead so that the milestone of 500 is achieved. But, in the meantime, I could not send the post and this milestone was already achieved on the blog. Later I thought maybe I send it for the auspicious ‘501’, but that also was not achieved. However, the ‘bigger reason’ to share this post was still there and posting of this song here today will push this movie- of which the today’s song is from – one step ahead in the ‘Yippeeee land’ as after this song only one song from this movie ‘Kaaran’ will be remaining to be posted on the blog.

‘Kaaran’ is a movie of 1980. Yes, as per HFGK and movie’s Censor Certificate, its movie of 1980 passed by Censor Board on 18.11.1980, maybe it was released in theatres in 1981 which is all possible. (So, this needs to be corrected on the blog and this is yet another purpose of this post).

‘Kaaran’ is directed by BR Ishara for Bhagyalakshami Chitra Mandir Combine, Bombay. It was produced by Gopi Rohra. It had Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Master Bittu, Arun Irani, Seema Deo, Ramesh Deo, Ashok Khanna, Sanu Sanyal, Shankar, Pardesi, PM Maniyar, RS Chopda, Shirvastava, Sunder Taneja, Kamal Thakur, Mona Sayeed, Ashish Oza, Soman Randhava, Amit Kumar, Shyam Solanki, Amarchand, and Naveen Nischol in a ‘special appearance’. Satyen Kappu, Dheeraj Kumar, Manhar Desai and Gulshan Arora make a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie. The story is written by Jyoti Swaroop and BR Ishara (spelt as B AAR Ishara in the movie titles 😊). Editing for this movie was done by LD Bhatia.

The movie has three songs – all solo songs sung by male singers viz. Kishore Kumar, Yesudas and Mohd Rafi. Lyrics for all the three songs are penned by Indeewar and music is composed by Usha Khanna. One song sung by Yesudas from this movie has been posted to cover a ‘major milestone’ on the blog i.e. 1000th lyrics Contribution of Prakashchandra ji.

Today we present the second song of this movie, which in the movie is the first song. I came across this song almost more than five years back when I was a ‘newcomer’ on the blog 😊. I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about its story and its performance at the box-office. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

With a ‘purpose’ and ‘reason’ for this presentation and continuing with the journey of Kishore Kumar’s songs from the ‘decade of seventies’ let us now enjoy this poignant song. . . 

kaaran naa jaane koi…

 

Song – Kaaran Na Jaane Koi (Kaaran) (1980) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi
toofaan dubotaa
to shikwaa na hotaa

khewaiyya ne naiyaa duboyee ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi

apna kaha na mujhko kisi ne
kya main itna paraaya hoon
chalte hain sab mujhse bachke
kya main gunaahon ka saaya hoon
phir na jaagi kismat aisi
maut ki neendiya soyi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh naa royi
kaaran na jaane koi

patthar ko bhi chot lagey to
aag ugalney lagta hai
jag ko jalaakar dam leta hai
jab dil jalne lagta hai
phool bana hai bahaar ka dushman
baagh bachega na koi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi
kaaran na jaane koi

aa ha ha ha aa ha
ho ho ho o ho ho o

pyaar jinhen milta hain kisi ka
wo sansaar sajaate hain
thukraaye jaate hain jo
duniyaa mein tabaahee laatein hain
suraj ne bhi andheron mein pal kar
roshni kaise khoi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh na royi ee
kaaran na jaane koi

ped binaa phal
phool binaa phulwaari adhoori hoti hai
jaagti hai jab mamta mann mein
naari poori hoti hai
mom ke jaisa patthar pighla
dil royaa aankh bhi royi ee ee
kaaran na jaane koi
dil royaa aankh bhi royi
kaaran na jaane koi
kaaran na jaane koi

कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई
तूफ़ान डूबोता तो शिकवा न होता
खेवैय्या ने नैय्या डूबोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

अपना कहा ना मुझको किसीने
क्या मैं इतना पराया हूँ
चलते हैं सब मुझसे बचके
क्या मैं गुनाहों का साया हूँ
फिर ना जागी किस्मत ऐसी
मौत कि नींदिया सोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

पत्थर को भी चोट लगे तो
आग उगलने लगता हैं
जग को जलाकर दम लेता हैं
जब दिल जलने लगता हैं
फूल बना है बहार का दुश्मन
बाग़ बचेगा ना कोई ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

आ हा हा हा आ हा
हो हो हो ओ हो हो ओ

प्यार जिन्हें मिलता हैं किसी का
वो संसार सजाते हैं
ठुकराए जाते हैं जो
दुनिया में तबाही लातें हैं
सूरज ने भी अंधेरों में पल कर
रौशनी कैसे खोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख ना रोई
कारण न जाने कोई

पेड़ बिना फल
फूल बिना फुलवारी अधूरी होती हैं
जागती हैं जब ममता मन में
नारी पूरी होती हैं
मोम के जैसा पत्थर पिघला
दिल रोया आँख भी रोयी ई ई
कारण न जाने कोई
दिल रोया आँख भी रोई
कारण न जाने कोई
कारण न जाने कोई

Blog Day : 3598 Post No. : 14361

Atul ji, in many of his posts presenting Kishore Kumar songs from the eighties has mentioned this, that though the golden era of music was over by the beginning of eighties, still many gem songs also happened to be created in the decade of eighties, and particularly in case of Kishore Kumar songs. And one of the reasons for this may be because Kishore Kumar’s peak period started in 1970 and lasted till his death in 1987.

I am presenting one such song today which is from the 1984 movie ‘Farishta’. Movies by this name have also been released in earlier decades, notably in 1958 and 1968, we had movies with the same title.

This film was Pran Saab’s presentation for his home production Sikand Films (which I was not aware of till writing of this post). It is directed by Sunil Sikand (Pran Saab’s son), who was also the producer and story writer of this movie. He also co-authored the screenplay with Tapan Chakravarty.

The cast of actors includes Ashok Kumar, Kanwaljeet Singh, Master Raju, Ambika Shourie, Danny and Pran. Bharat Bhushan, Azaad and Master Rajiv Bhatia also have supporting roles in this movie. Smita Patil makes a special appearance in this movie. The movie introduced – Shera – a wonder dog in this movie.

(Other credits: Sudesh Iyer was the Chief Assistant Director; David Dhawan was the editor; of this movie; Gyandev Agnihotri wrote the scenario; and the dialogues were written by Pradeep Roy Choudhary. It was passed by Censor Board on 13.10.1983.).

Lyrics for this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and the music is composed by RD Burman. Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anuradha Paudwal and Master Vivek Bajaj gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar which is performed on screen by Pran Saab. Master Raju and others can be seen in the picturization of this song. With this song the movie ‘Farishta’ makes its debut on the blog today.

zamaane mein koyee hamaaraa nahin. . .

Song – Zamaane Mein Koi Hamaara Nahin (Farishta) (1983) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

zamaane mein koi
hamaara nahin
kisi ka bhi hum ko
sahaara nahin

zamaane mein koi

zamaane mein koi
hamaara nahin ee
kisi ka bhi hum ko
sahaara nahin

naseebon ke kaale
savere to hain
garibon ke ghar mein
andhere to hain
naseebon ke kaale
savere to hain
garibon ke ghar mein
andhere to hain
koi chaand koy sitaaraa nahin
kisi ka bhi hamko
sahaara nahin

sabhi ke liye ek
duniya hai ye
hamaare liye gham ka
dariya hai ye

sabhi ke liye ek
duniya hai ye
hamaare liye gham ka
dariya hai ye
bhanwar hi bhanwar hai ye
kinaara nahin
kisi ka bhi hamko
sahaara nahin

kahin se kisi ne na
awaaz di
rahe chup khuda aur
bhagwaan bhi
kahin se kisi ne na
awaaz di
rahe chup khuda aur
bhagwaan bhi
bhagwaan bhi
kisey hum ne ja kar
pukaara nahin
kisi ka bhi hamko
sahaara nahin
sahaaraa nahin
sahaara nahin

ज़माने में कोई
हमारा नहीं
किसी का भी हमको
सहारा नहीं

ज़माने में कोई

ज़माने में कोई
हमारा नहीं
किसी का भी हमको ओ
सहारा नहीं

नसीबों के काले
सवेरे तो हैं
गरीबों के घर में
अँधेरे तो हैं

नसीबों के काले
सवेरे तो हैं
गरीबों के घर में
अँधेरे तो हैं
कोई चाँद कोई
सितारा नहीं
किसी का भी हमको
सहारा नहीं

सभी के लिए एक
दुनिया हैं ये
हमारे लिए ग़म का
दरिया हैं ये

सभी के लिए एक
दुनिया हैं ये
हमारे लिए ग़म का
दरिया हैं ये
भंवर ही भंवर है ये
किनारा नहीं
किसी का भी हमको
सहारा नहीं

कहीं से किसी ने ना
आवाज़ दी
रहे चुप खुदा और
भगवान् भी

कहीं से किसी ने ना
आवाज़ दी
रहे चुप खुदा और
भगवान् भी
भगवान् भी

किसे हमने जाकर
पुकारा नहीं
किसी का भी हमको
सहारा नहीं
सहारा नहीं
सहारा नहीं
