Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 49
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under this series where I am presenting yet another song from the Seventies. The last post presented in this series was also presented by me that too was a song from the year 1973.

The song under discussion is also from a movie of 1973.

Ever since Atul ji started this series it has become my routine to regularly check for movies which are eligible to be discussed in the series in the forthcoming month. I try to find movies that triggers long dormant memories of those days, associated either with the movies or their songs.

I may not necessarily have watched all those movies. In some cases it is only the songs from these movies, frequently being played on the radio or loudspeakers may have left lasting memories in my mind.

The movie for today’s song is a case inn point. I have not watched this movie till now, but I remember its song ‘tere naam ka deewaana, tere dar ko dhoondhtaa hai’ which was arguably the most popular of all the songs of this movie, as it was frequently played on the radio then. I did not like this song those days. Nevertheless this was the song and not any other songs that I associate with its movie.

After many years I listened to ‘honi to hoke rahegi anhoni naa hoye’ and liked it very much.

One more song from this movie which was popular and was played on radio and loudspeakers is the song being presented today. It was only after I browsed the list for the pending songs from this movie that I get to know that this song was from this movie ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’.

I was surprised when I find that this song has not been posted on the blog till now.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie or its songs till now. It was during the preparation of this post that I watched the video of this song for the first time.

Despite their popularity, popular none of these songs made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Before going into the song let us have a look on the movies represented on the blog ten years ago this day 16th November 2009;

Movies represented on the blog on 16.11.2009 (in descending order);

Gaaon mein peepal peepal ki chhainyya Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 03 of 06 songs posted
Sajanwaa bairi ho gaye hamaar Teesri Kasam-1966 All Songs Covered in the blog

‘Sooraj Aur Chandaa-1973’ or ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’ was directed by T. Madhava Rao for ‘Suraj Films, Madras’. (It was a costume drama movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol V). It was produced by A.V. Subramaniam. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Meeta (new discovery), Sujeet Kumar, Jagdeep, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shyama, Jairaj, Sajjan, Krishna Kant, Mukri, Ram Mohan, Herucles, Lalita Kumari, Sujata, Mona, Kamal, Bhimraj, Arun Kumar, Prem Kumar, Ravindra and others. Banda makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B. Vittalacharya, and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Krishna Rao.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.05.1973.

This movie had total six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three out of the six songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is the fourth songsfrom this movie to appear on the blog. The song is picturized on Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar where Bindu is lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Also, there are snakes around in the picturisation of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Editor’s note:-This song was quite a well known and hummable song of 1970s. It was a song which one heard without necessaily being aware of its details.

From the lyrics, one would guess that a lady is singing about her beloved who has come from far off.

When one watches the picturisation, all such assumptions get thrown out of the window. What one watches in the picturisation is something mind blowing, inadvertently so.

The song is a “naagin” song, in which a “naagin” is singing this love song to her beloved. “Naagin” is played by Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar is her beloved.

“Naagin”(1954) provided the template of all “Naagin” movies, but this movie “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973) takes that template to a different plane altogether.

In all other “Naagin” movies, a snake charmer (Sapera) plays the been and the female snake (invariably ichhaadhaari naagin) would turn into a human female and would then perform a dance.In this song, it is different. Here it is the snakes who play the “been” (yes seriously, just watch the picturisation). The snakes do not just play the been, they play the whole orchestra including instruments like Dholak, Tabla, Sitar etc as well. 🙂 And the lead snake Bindu performs the dance.

Snakes playing the music ! It is something unprecedented in the annals of Hindi movies ! I am not aware of any such instance in any other movie.

What an idea ! In my younger days, I would laugh at such a picturisation, but now, I can only be amused at the weirdly imaginative brain of the person behind the picturisation of this song.

This song deserves special recognition, especially for its picturisation.

We in this blog hereby make this song the century song of the blog.

THIS song is the 15300th song post in the blog. This song, marking the 153th century post of the blog is a “special” song in its own way. Picturisation of this song can keep people amused for hours ! 🙂

It appears that Laxmikant Pyarelal had specialised in being music directors of “Naagin” movies of that era. He would compose music for such well known “Naagin” movies like “Nageena”(1986)and “Nigaahen”(1989)” as well. These movies had Sridevi as the ichchaadhaari naagin. Remember ‘balma tum balma ho mere khaali naam ke’ 🙂 ?

So, with this amusingly picturised song, the blog completes another century. An agonisingly slow century that took 72 days. Very much in line with the slowing economy. 🙂

But on a different note, as many as 35 movies made their debut and three movies got YIPPEED during this period.

Thanks are due to all the supporters, well wishers, contributors, regulars and visitors whose continues support ensures that this musical bandwagon keeps chugging along on and on.

Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani
Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani

Preet ka geet ban ke

Blog Day :

4127 Post No. : 15284 Movie Count :

4207

Today 5th November is the eighth remembrance anniversary of Bhupen Hazarika (8 September 1926 – 5 November 2011). I am not adding any adjectives before his name because they will not do justice to describe the ‘personality’ he was, the monumental work he has done, the legacy he has left behind, and finally the ‘human for humanity’ he was.

I have always wanted to write an article on him since I came in to the contact with the blog. And that was only about how I get introduced to the ‘World of Bhupen Hazarika’ through his album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ (2/1993) and his songs like from the movies that I know ‘Rudaali’ (1993) and others, and the famous non-film song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .”.

I still remember the day 14th May 1993 (I was staying at Kota-Rajasthan then) when I bought ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ on HMV Cassette and me and one of my colleagues from Bengal listened to it. First time I just listened and was curious to know from my friend about the information on Bhupen Hazarika that he was aware of. Thereafter that evening I keep listening to the cassette changing sides till I went to sleep. That was the magic of the voice of Bhupen Hazarika and also the lyrics of the songs describing the various ‘common individuals in the society – the poor, the downtrodden, the suppressed ones’ and specially depicting the culture of Assam.

Around the same time, I think (June-July of 1993) the songs of ‘Rudaali’ were released and had became popular so the cassette of ‘Rudaali’ too became a part of my collection. Before that the Dadasaheb Phalke award for 1992 was announced; it was conferred on Shri. Bhupen Hazarika for his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema and music. After that I think his album with the song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .”, couple of songs from ‘Darmiyaan’ (1997) and other non-film songs was released which I bought during my stay at Bareilly.

I was also always remembering the title song from the TV serial ‘Lohit Kinaare’, I think it had the voice of Bhupen Da (if I am not wrong) , but in spite of my continuous search for it I have not been able to find it till date. In between over the years I was only aware of his Assamese and Bengali version of his song “Aawaara Hoon. . .”, which is “Moi Eti Jajabor” in Assamese and “Ami Ek Jajabor” in Bengali. And of course of the Assamese and Bengali versions of the song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .” i.e. “Bistirno Parore Ahankh Janore” and “Bistirno Duparer Ashankha Manusher’ respectively.

All these years all of his collection that I was having was always motivating me whenever I listened to the songs and I always cherished this valuable collection with me. After that almost a year back during my regular browsing I got to read about his personal life, his journey from his early years that made Dangor Moina, a child from Sadia, into a towering personality – Bhupen Hazarika. And I realized that one has to read more and more, or if possible, one has to literally live the life of Bhupen Hazarika to understand Bhupen Hazarika in its true ‘human’ spirit. And that surely requires a very detailed post separately.

On his birth anniversary this year (8th September, 2019) when Atul ji presented a post with his song “Ek Kali Do Pattiyaan” and mentioned about the original Assamese version of that song, I immediately checked for it and listen. And I was very excited and happy to enjoy it in Assamese language.

Just a couple of weeks later, there was a discussion on the song on ‘Brahmaputra’ in the ‘Atulites-whatsapp’ group where Atul ji mentioned about the folk singer Kalpana Patowary, so just one day I searched for her songs and came across a link of her performance in the TV musical program ‘Junoon’ where after her performance one of the judges Ila Arun asks her to sing the song of Bhupen Hazarika i.e. “Manuhe Manuhar Babe. . .”. So I looked for this song. When I listened to it first time I was lost in that song and from that day there is not a single day when I have not listened to this and other songs of Bhupen Hazarika in Assamese and Bengali whether I understand it or not.

But, as Bhupen Da himself mentioned in one of his interviews , what MF Hussain had said about him that “. . . when he sings – he paints.”. Here, I would like to add that not only we get to see the picture in front of us, but when he sings, we get involved in those feelings and emotions of those characters that Bhupen Da is singing about, and we unknowingly step into the soul of those characters.

Well, Atul ji’s post and the discussion on the group prompted me to look for the original Assamese and Bengali versions for his songs from the album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’. I keep finding them and also found some of them which are given in the table below for those who are interested to listen them. Rather I would request all to please listen to them to understand the ‘nuances’ (as Gulzar saab has said in his commentary in the album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’) of the characters.

Song Title (Hindi) Assamese song Bangla Song
Dola Ho Dola Dola He Dola Dola He Dola
Yeh Kiski Sadaa Hai Pratidhwani Suno Pratidhwani Shuni
Us Din Ki Baat Hai Porokhi Puwaate Tulunga
Kitne Hi Saagar Saagar Sangamat Saagar Sangame
Haan Aawaaraa Hoon Moi Eti Jajabor Aami Ek Jajabor
Main Aur Mera Saaya Moi aru mor saa
Ek Kali Do Pattiyaan Ekti kuri duti paata
Aalsi Saawan Badri Udaaye Ek khana megh bheshe elo aakashe

I would request our knowledgeable readers to correct me wherever I had made a mistake and also please provide either the Bangla or Assamese version for the Hindi songs that I have been unable to find in the above list. Also, I would apologize if I have made any mistake in the text while mentioning the songs title in either Assamese or Bengali elsewhere in this post.

Now, coming back to “Manuhe Manuhar Babe”, I found one video link wherein Bhupen Da himself is performing on this song and the details mentioned that this song was composed by him in 1964. And there, just this thought crossed my mind to check if there is a Hindi version of this song since it was the oldest song of Bhupen Da so I thought this should have been naturally translated in Hindi long back and this song both in Assamese and Bengali “Manush Manusher Jonno” (that Atul ji mentioned in his post ), are very popular one. But I could not gather the exact translated words for this song in Hindi if at all the song was made. But finally, I got it when I was listening to the various links available for the song “Insaanon Ne Paise Ke Liye” for Sahir Saab’s Remembrance Day.

So, when I was browsing for the song “Insaanon Ne Paise Ke Liye”, I noticed a link in the suggestions having Bhupen Da’s song “Insaan Insaan Ke Liye” and as I listened to it I had got the song I was looking for. And not just that it was already in the movie which was a Hindi version of ‘Chameli Memsaab’, I also got to listen another one “O Bideshi Bandhu”. What a song that is too. . . as we keep listening they keep growing more and more. . . and more. . .

And nowadays, there is not a single day when I do not listen to Bhupen Da’s song in Assamese or Bengali (even though I do not understand the words fully. But I must say they are very sweet, melodious and healing too). For example, I have listened innumerable times to “Akhom Dekhor Bagisare Sowali” in the voice of Usha Mangeshkar. And then its Bangla version “Asom Desher Meye Aami”. However, it seems that this song was not translated and included in the Hindi version of this movie.

Then there are few songs like “Shahid Pronaamo Tomak” which I like very much. And one song that Bhupen Da has mentioned in the interview (that I referred to above)  “Agnijugor. . .  Nuton Akhom Gadhi, Nutan Bharat Gadhi” which I need to listen, but so far have not found the link for it.

Now I also wish to learn Assamese and Bangla. And as many peoples say very rightly that we should always try and learn the Indian languages other than our mother tongue too. And that is the magic of our rich cultural heritage and of our ‘Unity in Diversity’. Even Bhupen Da an ambassador of ‘humanity’ also plays his role in the process of ‘national integration’ when he talks about that in the above interview.

And that bring us to the song of today, which has been taken from the Hindi moive ‘Chameli Memsaab’ (1979). Bhupen Da won the national award for the ‘Best Music Director’ for the Assamese movie ‘Chameli Memsaab’ at the 23rd National Awards – 1975.

‘Chameli Memsaab’ (Hindi) was directed by Ajit Lahiri for Elem Films, Calcutta. It has Abha Dhuliya, Tom Alter, Freddy Stroud, John McKenzie, Mrs. Freddy Stroud, Carol Alter, Pallavi Mehta, Master Raju, Sushant Sanyal, Mithoon Chakravarty and others. HFGK does not mention about the date of passing of this movie by the Censor Board.

This movie has four songs including one multiple version song. Lyrics for the songs are written by Gajanan Sharma (three songs) and Deep Narayan Mitholiya (one song). Music is composed by Bhupen Hazarika. Bhupen Hazarika, Kamal Ganguly, Arundhati Holme Choudhary and Ila Basu gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupen Hazarika and Kamal Ganguly and the lyrics are by Deep Narayan Mitholiya (I think singer Kamal Ganguly and lyricist Deep Narayan Mitholiya will be making a debut on this blog).

Let us now enjoy today’s song and welcome ‘Chameli Memsaab’ (1979) on the blog. Let us also remember the great human being Shri Bhupen Hazarika. And remember that we still have a long way to go to explore the writer, composer and singer Bhupen Hazarika.

Thanking Bhupen Da for the vast musical treasure trove of the ‘soul and fragrance of India’

Blog Day : 4116 Post No. : 15269

Here is that date again.

The 25th of October is a date that many Hindi film lovers, and lovers of shaayari, remember with some pain. For it was on the 25th of October 1980 that one of the tallest figures of the industry, and certainly of the world of poetry, bade farewell to us.

Sahir Ludhianvi.

I’m usually careful with my choice of adjectives, especially when using them in the superlative. But in the case of Sahir, I don’t have the slightest hesitation in saying “one of the tallest”. For he comfortably satisfies this criterion.

There have been more famous figures in the industry.

And there have certainly been more popular and liked figures in the industry. If anything, Sahir, with his uncompromising nature, and and ego and mood to match, wasn’t the easiest person to get along with.

And yet, when it comes to stature, that too in his particular field, Sahir was truly a giant.
Without belittling any of the others who also produced outstanding work in the form of lyrics, Sahir always seemed to be in a league of his own.

They say that an actor is not real – after all, it is his job to act. He is only putting on a show. Which is one reason Kishore Kumar preferred singing to acting. He felt a singer can put his heart and soul into a song, whereas an actor’s job is to pretend.

A lyricist goes a step further than even a singer.

While a singer can put his heart and soul into a song, he does not create it. He only renders it.

The text comes from the lyricist.

And therefore the lyricist has the best chance of putting his heart and soul into his creation. He talks to his audience through his lines. He can use his poetry as an outlet for his thoughts, his feelings, his joys and his frustrations.

And I feel no one did this better than Sahir.

With Sahir, what you saw was what you got.

Sahir was pretty much an open book in terms of his preferences, his likes and dislikes. Nothing duplicitous or fake about him. He had strong views on certain topics, and he had absolutely no qualms about expressing them.

He even got into trouble early in his life with the Government of Pakistan for this reason – and fled Lahore (and thus, Pakistan) to come to India in 1949.

Imagine if this had not happened. Imagine what might have been lost to us.

Whatever issues Indians might have with the Government of Pakistan, I thank the Pakistan Government, on behalf of all Indians, for creating an “enabling” environment for Sahir to move to India. 🙂

And Sahir never looked back.

From “thandi hawayen” (Naujawan-1951), the song that got him noticed, to “pal do pal ka saath hamaara” (The Burning Train-1980), one of the last films for which he wrote lyrics, Sahir was one of the most highly regarded lyricists of his time.

I remember saying this before. When Sahir passed away, I only knew his name as a lyricist. In those days, still a teenager, I had limited knowledge of song details. I’d know the song, and the singer. Yes, some chance I’d know the composer, but unless I’d listened carefully to the lyricist’s name while listening to it on radio, not much chance I’d know the lyricist. In those days, to be honest, I enjoyed songs without knowing whether it was a Majrooh or Sahir or Shailendra or Hasrat Jaipuri song.

With this limited knowledge, I read the obituary on Sahir in the Illustrated Weekly of India in 1980. It was a fairly long obituary, and naturally many of his songs were mentioned.

That was when it hit me.

Oh, “aage bhi jaane na tu” was Sahir’s?

And “ye raat ye chaandni phir kahaan”?

Oh, and “udey jab jab zulfen teri” also?

And “abhi na jao chhod kar”?

And “zindagi bhar nahin bhoolegi wo barsaat ki raat?”

And “tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega”?

Oh, and “jeevan ke safar mein raahi” also?

And “tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana le”?

There were many more – and each one was a song I knew, a classic. Yet, such was my pathetic knowledge at the time of who the lyricist was, that I never realized these were all Sahir.

At that time, if you’d asked me to mention a few Sahir songs, I’d have come up with Pyaasa and Kabhie Kabhie songs. These I always knew as Sahir songs. But I am ashamed now to think of how ignorant I otherwise was.

It was only at that moment I realized what a legend Sahir had been. And what the world had lost.

After that, I paid a lot more attention to the lyricist, while listening to songs.

And often it was Sahir.

Much later in life, I read that it was only on Sahir’s insistence that All India Radio itself started mentioning the name of the lyricist also, in its radio programmes.

It was not only the name of the lyricist, but also the lyrics themselves, that I started paying attention to.

And that is when I realized that Sahir’s lyrics were different.

They were deep, they conveyed an emotion that came from the heart – and often a strong emotion at that. They were not the “baith ja, baith gayi, khadi ho ja, khadi ho gayi” types.

If today lyrics are a very big, in fact the biggest, part of my love for a song, it is entirely due to Sahir. I listen to lyrics carefully today – no appreciation of a song is complete for me, without appreciating the lyrics.

Whether Sahir was writing romantic poetry (“abhi na jao chhod kar”) or mocking the government for its failures (“cheen-o-Arab hamaara”), whether he was lamenting the state of society (“jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hain”), or trying to uplift those seemingly with no hope (“wo subah kabhi to aayegi”), whether he was exhorting the oppressed to fight for their rights (“ponchh kar ashq” , “na munh chhupa ke jiyo”), or showing a mirror to society about its treatment of women (“aurat ne janam diya mardon ko”), whether he was trying to promote communal harmony (“tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega”), or talking about the futility of war (“khuda-e-bartar”), every single time Sahir’s lyrics tugged at your heart strings.

Not just because the poetry was beautiful and the lyrics powerful (which they absolutely were), but because you could feel that every word was written with heart and soul. No wonder it went straight from Sahir’s heart to our hearts.

You could feel Sahir’s anguish and despair when he says “ye duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai”. Or his cynicism when he says “aasmaan pe hai khuda aur zameen pe hum, aajkal wo is taraf dekhta hai kam”.

At the same time, you could feel the romance in the air, with “tum agar saath dene ka waada karo” and “parbaton ke pedon par”. Just listen to poetry like “thehre thehre paani mein, geet sarsaraate hain….bheege bheege jhonkon mein, khushbuon ka deraa hai”. Waah!
And “abhi na jao chhod kar”, one of my alltime favourites, and surely one of the most perfect songs ever in every respect.

Sahir’s poetry for the hurt felt by the jilted lover was no less powerful. “Jaane wo kaise log the jinke pyaar ko pyaar milaa”. Or lines like “laut rahi hain meri sadaayen, deewaaron se sar takra ke….haath pakad kar chalne waale, ho gaye rukhsat haath chhuda ke (sad version of in hawaon mein)”. And of course, “chalo ek baar phir se ajnabi ban jaayen hum dono” with lines like “wo afsaana jisey anjaam tak laana na ho mumkin, usey ek khoobsoorat mod dekar chhodna achha”.

Then you have the Barsaat Ki Raat qawwalis. Roshan’s masterpiece “na to karwaan ki talaash hai” merging into “ye ishq ishq hai ishq ishq” is one of the greatest ever compositions in Hindi cinema, with Sahir’s contribution in lyrics being no less significant. With lines like “jo dawaa ke naam pe zeher do, us chaaraagar ki talaash hai”.

I can go on and on. Dharamputra, Taj Mahal, Aaj Aur Kal, Mujhe Jeene Do, Chitralekha, Kaajal, Waqt, Neel Kamal, Humraaz, Bahu Begum, Aadmi Aur Insaan. Each one with memorable lyrics. One of my favourites is “poochhe koi ki dard-e-wafaa kaun de gaya, raaton ko jaagne ki sazaa kaun de gaya…kehne se ho malaal, to hum kya jawaab dein….duniya kare sawaal, to hum kya jawaab dein”.

Although Sahir was less productive in the 70s, he still came up with poetry that reminded us of Sahir of yore. The 70s was a decade where poetry began steadily losing ground to more “chaalu” lyrics. Urdu also began losing ground in the process.

This was a development that Sahir could not prevent, but did leave him disillusioned. His “main pal do pal ka shaayar hoon” very correctly represents his then state of mind. He continued to write though, but mostly for the Chopra family’s films, for films like Karm, Trishul, Insaaf Ka Tarazu, Kaala Patthar and The Burning Train.

Since Sahir started as a poet, and moved into film song lyrics, the sense of poetry comes across strongly in his lyrics. Much like with Kaifi Azmi.

So much for Sahir’s poetry. No one can do justice to it in one article. I’ve barely scraped the surface.

But what really makes me put Sahir on a different pedestal altogether is not the QUALITY of his poetry, but the CONTENT of his poetry.

Clearly Sahir was a rebel, a non-conformist.

And his poetry often reflected this, since he wrote straight from the heart.

But importantly, he never shied away from expressing his views. He never tried to be politically correct. He showed society a mirror, whether society liked it or not. For example, his line “kaho ji tum kya kya khareedoge, yahaan to har cheez bikti hai” is a much underrated, but powerful, line, in my opinion.

Yes, he railed and ranted – whether it made a difference or not. “Samaj ko badal daalo” he wrote.

Today, 39 years after his death, we are still languishing with most of the ills that existed in Sahir’s time, and which he spoke against.

It is a sad commentary of our times that many of his laments feel just as relevant today as they felt then. Yes, “aurat ne janam diya mardon ko, mardon ne usey bazaar diya” and “tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega, insaan ki aulad hai insaan banega” are just as relevant in 2019, as they were in 1958-59.

If Sahir were alive today, he’d probably be writing just as strongly today as he wrote then. The issues haven’t gone, sadly only Sahir has.

That’s a sobering thought.

Now, let’s move on to the song for today.

It’s from the 1969 film, Paisa Ya Pyaar.

As has now become customary :-), the lyrics for this song have been sent to me by Avinashji.

I remember seeing this film as a young boy, but I don’t remember the story now. It was a remake of a Tamil film Panama Paasama, starring Gemini Ganesan and Saroja Devi, which was a pretty big hit at the time. In fact, the name Panama Paasama, translates in Hindi to Paisa Ya Pyaar.

I remember the song “Ber lo, ber lo” was a lift from the very popular “yelantha pazham yelantha pazham” song of Panama Paasama. 🙂

But today’s song is different. It is a typical Sahir song – Insaan ne paise ke liye.

Here, Sahir’s lament is about how money destroys relationships. He talks about how people lose everything, even their own self-respect, for money. He concludes by saying that love is the biggest wealth there is.

The song is sung by Hemant Kumar, music composed by Ravi.

Please do listen.

I’d like to end by saying that Sahir was wrong in one respect.

He wrote

“kal koi mujh ko yaad kare
kyon koi mujhko yaad kare
masroof zamaana mere liye
kyon waqt apna barbaad kare”

Sahir saab, I can only say you grossly underestimated our love and respect for you.

jo aapse mila hai, wo itna hai anmol
roz sunte hain, aap hi ke hum bol
aap ko bhool jaayen, ye mumkin nahin
aap ki yaad na aaye, aisa koi din nahin

Thank you SO MUCH for what you’ve given us, Sahir saab.

And, very importantly, for just being you.

Song-Insaanon ne paise ke liye aapas ka pyaar mita daala (Paisa Ya Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhainvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics (based on audio link) (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa
Hanste baste ghar phoonk diye
Dharti ko narak banaa daalaa

Mitti se nikaala sone ko
Sone se banaaye mahal magar
Mitti se nikaala sone ko
Sone se banaaye mahal magar
Jazbaat ke naazuk rishton ko
Mitti ke taley dafnaa daalaa
Insaanon ne
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Deen aur dharam ko haar diya
Neki ko badi par waar diyaa
Deen aur dharam ko haar diya
Neki ko badi par waar diyaa
Mandir Masjid aur Girjon ko
Bankon ki bhent chadhaa daalaa
Insaanon ne
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Daulat ki hawas mein logon ne
Kya kya na kiya is duniya mein
Kya kya na kiya is duniya mein
Chaahat izzat mehnat gairat
Sabkaa neelaam uthhaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Pyaar apne jagah khud daulat hai
Ye baat na samjhi insaan ne
Pyaar apne jagah khud daulat hai
Ye baat na samjhi ee insaan ne
Kudrat ke banaayi daulat ka
Sikkon mein mol lagaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला
हँसते बसते घर फूँक दिए
धरती को नरक बना डाला

मिटटी से निकाला सोने को
सोने से बनाए महल मगर
मिटटी से निकाला सोने को
सोने से बनाए महल मगर
जज़्बात के नाज़ुक रिश्तों को
मिटटी के तले दफना डाला
इंसानों ने
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

दीन और धरम को हार दिया
नेकी को बदी पर वार दिया
दीन और धरम को हार दिया
नेकी को बदी पर वार दिया
मंदिर मस्जिद और गिरिजों को
बैंकों की भेंट चढ़ा डाला
इंसानों ने
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

दौलत की हवस में लोगों ने
क्या क्या न किया इस दुनिया में
क्या क्या न किया इस दुनिया में
चाहत इज्ज़त मेहनत गैरत
सबका नीलाम उठा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

प्यार अपने जहाँ खुद दौलत है
ये बात न समझी इंसान ने
प्यार अपने जहाँ खुद दौलत है
ये बात न समझी ई इंसान ने
कुदरत के बनायी दौलत का
सिक्कों में मोल लगा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

Blog Day :

4104 Post No. : 15254 Movie Count :

4191

First of all, my apologies for my infrequent appearances here. Even calling it a cameo is unfair to a cameo, because, to be honest, it is not even that. It is more like, a “blink and you miss” situation.

Anyway, here I am today, back with a post. The occasion is the Remembrance Day of someone very special to the Hindi film industry, and also to me. He has millions of fans around the world and is easily one of the legends of the industry.

I am talking about Kishore Kumar, of course.

I’ve written about Kishore Kumar many times in the past. And yet, when Avinash ji requested me to write a post for this occasion, I immediately agreed. Such is my love for Kishore Kumar that even if I repeat myself and bore my readers in the process 🙂 , I could not bring myself to say no.  🙂

The problem then was to get the required writing mood back. What they say about writing is very true. If you don’t write for an extended period of time, you gradually lose the ability to do so. That is why many writers practise their writing everyday, by writing at least a minimum number of words.

When I wrote to Avinash ji saying “Mere thoughts gather nahin ho rahe. I have lost the ability to write”, he replied “Aap Kishore Kumar ke gaane suniye aur din bhar sunte rahiye. Thoughts will come, I am sure.” 🙂

So I did listen to a few songs – predictably songs of ‘my’ era. “Khizaan Ke Phool”, “Jeevan Se Bhari Teri Aankhen”, “Teri Duniya Se”, “Hum Bewafa Hargiz Na The”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani” and a few others.

I think that might have helped a bit, because here I am.

Anyway, coming to Kishore Kumar.

The years just roll by – it is already 32 years since he left us.

He was just 58 at the time – far too young to go.

But like they say, it is not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years.

And Kishore Kumar had plenty of life in his years.

No one will dispute that Kishore Kumar was the No.1 all-rounder in the industry. There have been a few others who have had multiple skills. Manoj Kumar was actor, writer, director, producer. Mehmood was also quite an all-rounder.

But Kishore was in a league of his own, because in each of his roles, he left a mark. Of course he is best-known as a singer, but even today many remember his acting, especially in comedy roles like in ‘Dilli Ka Thug’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Half Ticket’ and many other films.

But there was so much more to Kishore Kumar than just comedy. And probably to prove this point, he produced and directed films like ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’ (1964) and ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971). I was stunned when I saw both these films – they have tremendous depth and philosophy, uncommon for the times.

His versatility was not limited to singing, acting, producing and directing though. Kishore Kumar also composed music, for some of his films.  Like the two films mentioned above, whose songs are quite popular to this day. As are the songs of  ‘Jhumroo’ (1961).

This is why I call Kishore Kumar the Gary Sobers of the Hindi film industry. 🙂 He could take on any role, and make a success of it.

But beyond even his multifarious talents, there was Kishore the person. And even as a person, he is quite an inspiration for me. His attitude towards life is something I can only admire.

Those who worked with Kishore Kumar, especially Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, vouch  for his ability to enliven a recording session with his sense of humour, his cracking a joke or pulling someone’s leg. Some people are like this – never a dull moment with them around.

It is not as if Kishore didn’t have low moments, or tough times. Everyone has these – Kishore was no exception. But he never let this affect his professionalism. He was very clear about himself, his philosophy towards life – and he never allowed others to define it for him.

Like he said “Duniya samajhti hai main paagal hoon….main samajhta hoon duniya paagal hai”.

I think, whatever his conflicts with the world might have been, especially later in his life, he was at peace with himself. And that is most important for a human being. Like he told Lata Mangeshkar in an interview in the fag end of his career “I am quite happy”. He expressed a desire to run away from it all, and go to a place which was calling out to him.

Today, on his Remembrance Day, I feel Kishore Kumar found that place and left us in order to go there.

And left us with SUCH a treasure of songs and memories that we are indebted to him for life.

So thank you, thank you, thank you, Kishore Kumar for what you have given us. Speaking purely for myself, as someone who has been part of my life from my very early years, when I listened repeatedly to songs like “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” and “Ye Shaam Mastaani” on the radio, your impact on my life cannot be described.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a totally new song for me. In fact I have never even heard of the film. Details, including lyrics of the song, have been sent to me by Avinash ji.

This is what he says :

“Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye-1984’ was directed by K.S. Sethumadhavan for ‘Tirupati Chitra Mandir, Bombay’. It was produced by Hastimal.

It had Rakhi Gulzar, Suresh Oberoi, Vijay Arora, Manmohan Krishan, CS Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Shobhha Khote, Birbal Raj, Raj Kishore, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Master Rinku, Shah Chaturvedi, Raghvaiyya, Santosh Kumar, Lata Kashmiri, Dolphin and others. Deepa and Ramu make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.06.1984. However, the movie was re-certified by Censor on 15.12.1987 with a UA certificate (as mentioned in HFGK).

The movie has total seven songs, including the three-part song being presented today (as per HFGK Vol-VI 1981-1985) composed by Rajesh Roshan. HFGK mentions Rajesh Roshan as the lyricist for this movie and the same is mentioned on the vinyl cover of this movie available on online sources, which I guess is correct. (myswar.co also mentions the same). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Pankaj Udhas and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.”

This film, ‘Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye’ (1984), makes its debut entry on this blog today.

The song itself is amazing. I’d never heard it before, but when I heard it for the first time a few days ago, it touched my heart. It also suits this occasion, as it talks of a person who feels he is ready to move on.

Please do listen to this wonderful song. Quite a gem, it is, especially in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Thanks for the song, Avinash ji.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 48
——————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1973 movie ‘Heeraa’ which made its debut on the blog on 10th Oct’2009.

Other movies represented on the blog on that day were as follows;
(Movies represented on the blog on 10.10.2009 (in descending order);

Kashtiyaan sab ki kinaare pe pahunch jaati hain,
Naakuda jinka nahin,
Unka khuda hota hain”

Those lines played in the background with the ‘logo’ of Sultan Productions the home production of Producer and director Sultan Ahmed.

That also reminds us of the other production houses’ logos and some of them which played some famous lines and that was also one of the thrilling experiences of watching movies in the seventies.

‘Heera’ or ‘Heeraa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed and it was his home production.

It had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo and many others.
Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar, Satyendra Kappu make a friendly appearance in this movie.
The movie also introduced a sheep ‘Kaptaan’.

Story of this movie was written by K.B. Pathak. Dialogues were written by Wajahat Mirza. Wajahat Mirza also shared the screenplay writing K.B. Pathak and Sultan Ahmed. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna and Mukri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1973.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) listed six songs on the movie page for this movie, it was however corrected in the addenda that the first song in the list, is actually only few lines of the first song in the movie ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ , and thus reducing the total number of songs of this movie to five.

This song ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ was presented on the blog by our Respected Arun ji and he also had mentioned in brief about this movie and its story. (Wherein only one correction is required that the villain Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) is not arrested b the police in the end of this movie, but he gets killed during the encounter with Heera (Sunil Dutt) and the Police).

I have vague memories of watching this movie either with my Father or my Uncle. And I must be around five or six years old then. After that I have never watched this movie again.

But I always have the nostalgia with me for the song ‘main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane’ from this movie. I remember this song was very popular then and was frequently played on loud speakers. (however, none of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year). Other than this song the nostalgia related with this movie that I always carried was ‘the daaku, the horses and the guns and the ‘khandahars’ 🙂

Other than the two songs mentioned above the other song which one can remember after listening to it is ‘Jai Ambe Jagdambe Maa Jai Ambe Jagdambe’ which was also heard, may be during ‘Durga Pooja’ festivals only.

And these three songs mentioned above are the three songs from this movie which have been posted in the blog so far.

One can find the today’s song also heard on radio in those days, but I think it was not much popular and forgotten easily thereafter. However this can remind us of the many this type of songs in other movies 😊

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, while two lyricists wrote the songs for this movie, Indeewar three songs and Anjaan two songs.

Today’s song is written by Anjaan and sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is performed by Asha Parekh.

Asha Parekh recently celebrated her 77th birth anniversary on this 2nd October. (She was born on 2nd October 1942). We belatedly wish her a very healthy and peaceful life ahead.

This song happens to be a song in the ‘villain’s den’ where Asha Parekh and her Father Kanhaiyyalal are hostages after Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) has abducted them. And he forces Asha Devi (Asha Parekh) to dance in his den …

‘le baandh le ye ghunghroo… aur aisaa naach ke aaj saari sabhaa mein aag lag jaaye’

Naach …

And that is why this song …

Let us now enjoy this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.


Song-Aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

O deewaane tu sun
meri paayal ki dhun
iski jhankaar mein maut ka raag hai
ho koi sangedil
khaaq mein jaaye mil
aaj ghunghroo ke bolon mein wo aag hai
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
mujhe aise tu dekhen kyun
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

kar naa ghaayal mujhe
rang degaa tujhe
har lahu ka jo katraa giregaa yahaan
zulm itnaa na kar
yoon naa hadd se guzar
tu agar hai zameen to koi aasmaan
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
dekho mujhko na chhoona yoon
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne na paaye ae
bujhne na paaye …

Every year we celebrate our Republic Day on 26th January and Independence Day on 15th August.
This year we celebrated our our 70th Republic Day on 26th January (26.01.2019)and 73rd Independence Day on 15th august 2019.

Hearts of Indians are naturally filled with pride and enthusiasm on such occasions. It is also natural that we are reminded of the many ‘patriotic songs’ on these occasions- they could be from Hindi movies or non-film songs.

This year our Atul ji posted a very nice song and an appropriate article on the occasion. I enjoyed this song and, in the process, also browsed the blog for the other songs which I do remember whenever we celebrate our Independence Day and Republic Day. These songs always bring back those memories when I was a school going boy.

We used to get ready very early in the morning and after the flag hoisting at school and ‘prabhat-pheri’ up to the ‘gram panchayat’ school we again used to attend the flag hoisting ceremony at our colony club ground where the general function would take place for all employees (of the state electricity board) and their families. The distribution of sweets after the program was also a big attraction for us children then.

This time on both the occasions i.e. on Independence Day and Republic Day I could not send a song or a post from my side for the blog. But then I was thinking that is it necessary that we post patriotic songs on these two occasions only?
There are many other special occasions too where we have birth anniversaries and Remembrance Day of the leaders who lead the ‘freedom struggle’ and laid their lives for the freedom, even though they followed different thought process and different line of action to reach their goals.

Yesterday 28th September 2019 was the birth anniversary of one of the most loved martyrs of our country Bhagat Singh. And we remember him on his anniversary and paid our tributes as possible in our own ways.

We do always remember our ‘freedom struggle’ and the ‘hard earned freedom very much and ‘WE’ value it every day.
And may be in the history of our ‘freedom struggle’ it is possible that not a single day was without the fight and sacrifice by our countrymen.

Similarly, our armed forces guarding our borders have to fight every day to secure our borders and foil any attempt against our country by those who want to disturb peace in our country.

And even though we are busy with our daily routine our heart is always with our armed forces who are securing our borders and delivering their duties in the most difficult conditions and delivering their best in the many adverse conditions be it weather or other created circumstantial difficulties time to time, and many times sacrificing their lives whenever it is required so.

I remember one song from Marathi movies ‘sainik ho tumchaysaathi’ which is very close to my feelings that I have mentioned above and also those which I am unable to express in words. This song is just perfect to express those feelings.

(This is from the Marathi movie ‘Paahu Kiti Re Vaat-1963’, of which the lyrics are written by G.D. Madgulkar and it was composed by Datta Davjekar. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle)
The lyrics are in Marathi and are given with the YT link above, so I am not reproducing them here. I am also not trying to translate it because I feel I will not be able to do that perfectly, except the last three lines;

“रक्षिता तुम्ही स्वातंत्र्या प्राणांस घेउनी हाती
तुम्च्यास्तव आमुची लक्ष्मी तुम्च्यास्तव शेतीभाती
एकट्या शिपायासाठी झुरतात अंतरे कोटि”

You protect our freedom exposing your lives to danger
Our prosperity is because of you
Our livelihood (farms and crops) are because of you
Billions of hearts yearns/flounders for every soldier

And, why I am mentioning this above is that many times, I and may be all of us have to go through these feelings and even helplessly we cannot we do anything except reading in the news and expressing our solidarity with our forces whenever there are attacks or commotion on our borders, or other domestic problems where to control the situations our forces are deployed, and while doing so they have to sacrifice their lives…

But our soldiers who are there protecting us are braver then we think, just see this ‘tweet’(which was on tweeter recently) by an army Officer after one of our Officer was captivated by our neighboring country after the attacks on our CRPF Jawans in February this year , and we all were praying for his safe return …

“Dear Friends, things happen. It’s a War… don’t feel disheartened. Indian Armed Forces are capable to take on any mission! Cheer Up… Chin Up… Keep the josh HIGH Just stand UNITED and behind your soldiers, their families and veteran. They will NEVER EVER disappoint YOU Jai Hind”

***

So the spirit of our armed forces and people is always there to protect our country and fight for the country even if it requires of sacrificing of our lives.

Our love and concern for our motherland is always there. We are proud of our history, culture, heritage, and the stories of bravery and valor that will continue to inspire the coming generations.
And, if we have a movie on such historical incidence it has to be here on the blog and that is the reason for this post today.

Many of us (I consider people of my age here) may be remembering to have read about ‘Koma Gata Maru’ in the textbooks of history while in schools. (I am not aware if all those incidences of history which I read in my school days are still included in the today’s school curriculum).

Well, here is a brief about ‘Koma Gata Maru’…

Koma Gata Maru or S.S. Koma Gata Maru a Japanese steamship was hired by Gurudit Singh or Baba Gurdit Singh who was a businessman in Hong Kong.
It sailed on 04.04.1914 from Hong Kong to Coal Harbor, Vancouver and anchored there on 23.05.1914.
What inspired Gurudit Singh can be mentioned in this idea that “The visions of men are widened by travel and contacts with citizens of a free country will infuse a spirit of independence and foster yearnings for freedom in the minds of the emasculated subjects of alien rule”

The ship was to carrying around 346 passengers to Canada who want to immigrate there. However, the strict Canadian immigration laws doesn’t allow them to embark there and the ship was sailed back to Calcutta.
Gurdit Singh was aware of the discriminatory Canadian laws for the south Asians, however India under British rule then and Indians being a British subject he challenged the Canadian laws. The ship was hulled in the sea for almost two months and later on forcefully sailed back to India (on 23.07.1914) except twenty peoples were allowed to enter Canada. This incident has gone down as a shameful incident in the history of Canada.

When the ship sailed back to India and docked at the Budge Budge dockyard at Calcutta the Britishers who by now were known of the revolutionary intent of the people in the ship mostly Sikhs attacked them with Bullets and many people were killed in this incident while the leaders were successful to escape and enter India.

In India, the ‘Koma Gata Maru’ memorial was set up near Budge Budge, Calcutta in 1952 which was inaugurated by our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
In 2014 government of India issued two special coins, INR 5 and INR 100, to mark the centenary of the Komagata Maru incident.

In Canada a monument in remembrance of the Komagata Maru incident was unveiled in July 23, 2012 near the steps of the seawall that lead up to the Vancouver Convention Centre West Building in Coal Harbour.
A stamp commemorating the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Komagata Maru was released by Canada Post on May 1, 2014.

(source of information – Wikipedia and many articles available in Canadian media, official website of Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Canadian Encyclopedia, Ottawa Citizen etc.)

Today’s movie ‘Jeewan Sangram-1974’ was made on this subject.

And how I became aware of this movie and its song also has story behind it.

I always vaguely remembered to have watched a movie with my Uncle in my childhood days titled ‘Sangram’ having actor Shashi Kapoor.
The other thing I vaguely remember which always keep me haunting with this movie name was Shashi Kapoor tied in ropes and many people surrounding him and he is trying to pull the ropes and fighting with them.

Over the years this image could not erase from my memory. And from the movie name which I had in my mind I imagine that the hero is struggling for something or may be his life has become a ‘Sangram’.

As I grow, I keep searching for this movie for many years. After coming into contact with this blog and getting more familiar to internet and continued searching, I finally came to know that the movie is not ‘Sangram’ but it is ‘Jeewan Sangram’.

Then I started looking for this movie or its songs. There was not a single song from this movie which was popular or which I remember to have listened to anywhere. Even I think this movie may not have been a successful movie of its time.

Well, as few years passed, I found one song available on YouTube which was picturised on Manmohan (and I was planning for an article on him …). Then one day I find this today’s song and listened to its one part (that time I think only one part was available) and then forgotten again.

Finally, months back when I checked this song again and realized that this song is a song praising our ‘mother land’ and love for the country, or this was a ‘patriotic song’ to put it straight.

Now coming to the image that I had in my mind since my childhood. Well I watched this movie online and there is no such scene in this movie, where Shashi Kapoor is tied with ropes.

However, there is one scene in the end of the movie where Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) himself come out and face bullets from all corners where the Police has already been waiting for him to surrender, but he embraces death to make people awake and thinking that his sacrifice will inspire people to fight the Britishers. (So, one can understand how deep impact this scene has on my impressionable mind then, and it kept haunting me all these years 🙂 )

**

As I watched this movie in parts and not at one go, I keep noting many things which I would like to share for information only.

The movie starts with the following offerings;

“The makers of this movie offer their homage to Baba Gurdit Singh whose courage and vision steered S.S. Koma Gata Maru back to Indian Shores.
Baba Sohan Singh Bhakna – Founder-President of the Ghadar Party (in California USA) – an undisputed leader of the early revolutionaries.
Kartar Singh Sarabha – Stormy petrel of the Indian Revolution. Fearless Fire-brand who was sentenced to death at the tender age of nineteen only.
And those thousands of others, who like the hero of our film, gave of their utmost to their motherland, but whom history has cruelly ignored…”

And that gives us an idea of the storyline of this movie.

The movie starts with 29th September 1914, Budge Budge dockyard Calcutta where the ship ‘S.S.Koma Gata Maru’ carrying Indians abroad reached from Canada, where entry to these peoples was denied.

After the titles we are introduced by the commentator …

“Door deshon se aaye huye ye wo kaumi parwaane hain, jo desh ke liye apna sab kuchh lutaakar Bharat ko aazaad karaane ke liye aaye
Duniya ki sabse badi sultanat ke khilaaf baghaawat ka jhanda lehraate huye, inn muthhi bhar janbaazon ne, jaise hi apne desh ki dharti par qadam rakhaa to inka swaagat … (goliyon se huaa)” …

The leader of these Baba Gurdit Singh Sandhu from Sarhali and other patriots were also involved in ‘Ghadar Party’ activities to fight with the British and make India free from Britishers.
Baba Gurdit Singh’s initial idea that “The visions of men are widened by travel and contacts with citizens of a free country will infuse a spirit of independence and foster yearnings for freedom in the minds of the emasculated subjects of alien rule” lead him to gather patriotic Indians from abroad whom he want to take to Canada, however entry to all of them was denied and they were sent back to Calcutta. Reaching Calcutta all these leaders and their associates were attacked by British resulting brutal killings of many and arrests of many, except Baba Gurdit Singh, Baba Nidhan Singh and Arjun Singh who fled away.
After this the main protagonist in the movie Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) with Baba Nidhan Singh and Sachin Sanyal continue the cause of Ghadar Party and preparations for the mutiny in ‘British Indian Army’ which is planned for 21st Feb’1915.
However British Police lured one of the activists who becomes informer for them and the mutiny is advanced for 19th Feb.
Here I would stop myself from detailing of what happens next 😊 the movie is available online and those who are interested to watch it may watch it at least once. (I watched it full once and then repeat for many parts during the preparation of this article.)

The tagline in the posters of this movie mentioned it as ‘The flaming story of a people’s revolt against tyranny’

I also like the dialogues in this movie and why not after all they are written by Gulzar and Qamar Jalalabadi.

“Marna bhala hai uska, jo apne liye jiye,
Jeeta hai wo, jo mar chuka hai desh ke liye”

Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) says this to Baba Nidhan Singh insisting him to allow to go to Calcutta to meet Sachin Sanyal instead of Baba Nidhan Singh going there and endangering his life.

The most interesting and introspecting dialogues are between Om Shivpuri and Shashi Kapoor.
As police gets the information and they start following Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) from Calcutta in train and Arjun Singh after a scuffle and fight with them gets injured and jumped into a river and finally landing in the ‘khema’ where Om Shivpuri is the leader who has seen the 1857 revolution and how the infighting, treachery and back-stabbing among ourselves helped the British. He has lost all the hopes of people rising again to fight the British.

Ye ajeeb naashukaron ka desh hai beta
Ajeeb bujhdil hai yahaan ke log

Arjun Singh’s reply is;

Is desh ki haalat
In logon ki khudgarzi
Mujhse chhuppi nahin hai
Lekin ye khudgarzi, ye loot-khasot jab aakhri had ko pahunch jaati hai tabhi inquilaab ka waqt aata hai, aur aaj …aaj wo waqt aa gaya hai.

Seeing hope in Arjun Singh, Om Shivpuri extends support to Arjun Singh in the cause of ‘freedom’ …

Further story is how all these patriots fights the British till their end …

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Narendra Chanchal and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Lyrics are by M.G. Hashmat.
As I have mentioned above earlier, I thought this song was only one part, but then I find second part and when checked through HFGK Vol-V (1971-80) it mentioned this song as a ‘three part’ song. I found audio for the first part with an extra stanza which, I think, was not included in the movie. I already had located videos of other two parts except the first part. Later on, I also found the video for the first part of this song. I am thankful to all the uploaders who have uploaded this movie and its songs on YouTube.

(This song appears in the movie at the following timings as given below)
00:00:39 to 00:03:16 (part-I)
00:05:44 to 00:06:17 (chorus, mukhda)
00:07:50 to 00:08:10 (mukhda, chorus)
01:06:01 to 01:07:02 (chorus, mukhda)
01:24:11 to 01:26:08 (part-II)
02:04:51 to 02:07:07 (part-III)

The ‘Koma Gata Maru’ incident in history took place on 29th September 1914 and today is 29th September 2019. One hundred and five years have passed to this incident.
But grateful nation always remembers its martyrs and all those known and unknown who have fought for the freedom of India.
Every small incident in our history of freedom struggle is a source of great inspiration for the coming generations, and all those stories of courage, valor and sacrifice needs to be passed on to them by every Indian in his lifetime.

Let us now listen to the today’s song in the special and unforgettable voice of Narendra Chanchal who has rendered it very soulfully …

With this today’s song “Jeewan Sangraam-1974” makes a debut on the blog!!

(Note- Thanks to our Sudhir ji who hold this post shared by me in March this year and advised me that we should present it on the anniversary of the ‘Koma Gata Maru’ incident i.e. on 29th September today).

Blog Day :

4089 Post No. : 15230

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Bikhraa hai kaajal fizaa mein
Bheegi bheegi hai shaamein
Boondon ki rimjhim se jaagi
Aag thhandi hawaa mein
Aajaa sanam
ye haseen aag ham
Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa
teri har saans mein
Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa

न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बनाके आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

बिखरा है काजल फिजा में
भीगी भीगी है शामें
बूंदों की रिमझिम से जागी
आग ठंडी हवा में
आजा सनम
ये हसीं आग हम
ले दिल में बसा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

आँचल कहाँ

ये मुझे होश क्या है
ये बेखुदी तूने दी है
प्यार का ये नशा है
सुन ले ज़रा
साज़ ए दिल गा रहा
है नगमा तेरा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया

कलियों की ये सेज महके
रात जागे मिलन की
खो जाएँ धड़कन में तेरी
धडकने मेरे मन की

तेरी हर सांस में
मैं जाऊं समा
न जाने क्या हुआ

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 47
——————————————————————————————

When one discussed a movie of 1940s, one often assums by default that it must be a “boring” movie, one which may not hold the interest of later generation movie goers. And when one finds that this movie has Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in lead roles, people who have seen them in character roles may consider dropping the idea of watching the movie.

But what if I tell you that this movie from 1941 is a laugh riot ? And that this movie was the original inspiration of “Padosan”(1968) ? I am sure that people will suddenly get interested in knowing more about this movie.

“Jhoola”(1941) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. This movie, a “social” movie had Leela Chitnis, Ahok Kumar, Shah Nawaz, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Karuna Devi, Shahzadi, Rajkumari Shukla, Meenu Cooper, M A Aziz, Kaazi, Master Laxman, Leeladhar Sharma, Iqbal Bai, B M Dixit, Jyoti, Dulaari, Nana Palsikar etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. This movie has a song that goes Ek chatur naar karkar singaar . Yes, I mentioned that this movie is the original source for “Padosan”(1968) and this song is the inspiration of that famous “Padosan”(1968) Kishore Kumar Manna dey laugh riot.

If “Padosan”(1968) had Mehmood then “Jhoola”(1941) had his father Mumtaz Ali lip syncing the wonderful stage dance song Main to Dilli se dulhan laayaa re.

“Jhoola”(1941) had made its debut in the blog on 26 september 2009, viz exactly ten years ago, with the evergreen song Chali re chali re meri naao chali re .

This day that year ten years ago, the blog was at its usual prolific best. Six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Five out of six of those movies have already been covered in the blog. “Jhoola”(1941) remains the only un YIPPEED movie from that day.

Here are the details of the songs that were discussed on 26 september 2009:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tera mujhse hai pahle ka naata koi Aa Gale Lag Jaa-1973 All Songs covered in the blog
Har aas ashqbaar hai Kinaare Kinaare-1963 All Songs covered in the blog
Dekha naa jaaye socha naa jaaye Mr India-1961 All Songs covered in the blog
Kahaan chhod ke chalaa hai tu Anjaan-1956 All Songs covered in the blog
De bhi chuke ham dil nazraana dil kaa Jaal-1952 All Songs covered in the blog
Chali re chali meri naao chali re Jhoola-1941 05 of 11 songs covered

According to HFGK, the movie had 12 songs. I find that the song Ek chatur naar karkar singaar does not find mention if HFGK. To compensate for that, the song under discussion today gets mentionc twice (as song number 6 and 11). So the count of songs in the movie remains accurate, viz 12.

Today, as part of Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from “Jhoola”(1941). Like the song that was covered ten years ago, this song too is a duet sung by Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis. In the song ten years ago, the leading duo were riding a boat, here they ride a ghodagaadi, and while doing so, Ashok Kumar makes gentle 1940s style passes on Leela Chitnis, asking the love letter back. Leela Chitnis teases him back 1940s style responds 1940s style viz.

Dekho kah doongi
Haan haan dekho kah doongi
Tumhaare man ki batiyaan

and subsequently

Hamri gali mein dekho
Tum kal se aana chhodo
Varna hansengi hamaari sakhiyaan

The lyrics by Kavi Pradeep are quite cute and romantic. The romantic song, in which both make paasses at each other must have been quite a rage in those pre independence days.

Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day :

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 45
——————————————————————————————

The date today 22 september 2019. It is a sunday.

Ten years ago, this date (22 september 2009) was a working day. I was in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Despite that day being a working day, I had covered as many as eight songs on that day. Posting six or more songs in a day used to be no big deal for me.

Here are the details of the eight songs that were covered on 22 september 2009.

Song (Movie title) Year Posting time Remarks
Aandhiyaan gham ki yoon chalin (Zeenat) 1945 1:29 All Songs covered on the blog
Wo marne se nahin darte (Shama Parwaana) 1954 2:19 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaye chaand ne aansoo (Lagan) 1955 5:00 TWO/out of Eight songs covered
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye (Hamdard) 1953 5:38 All Songs covered on the blog
Mujh ko tum jo mil gaye (Detective) 1958 7:10 Seven/out of Eight songs covered
Idhar to haath la pyaare (Aakhri Daao) 1958 7:59 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaron se poochho (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) 1960 8:11 Five/out of Nine songs covered
Dharti 1970 8:34 All Songs covered on the blog

As can be noticed, I was awake till 2:19 AM after midnight and I had already posted two songs for the day. They I went back to sleep and woke up before 5 AM. Then I posted six more songs. The eights and final song for the day was posted at 8:24 AM !

Those were the days when I could post eight songs in a day by early morning ! What productivity ! 🙂

I hardly slept those days and that did not even affect my health. My wife, whenever she would join me would make adverse comments about my tendency to sleep less. Her persistent nagging may have finally borne fruit because these days I neither keep awake that late nor do I wake up so early. And I no longer post that many songs in a day. I actually wonder now how I was that motivated one decade ago.

By contrast from ten years ago, today (22 september 2019)I have so far posted just one post.

Here is the second song from the day, when it is already evening. This song is part of the blog ten year challenge. As can be seen from the table above, four out of eight movies have been YIPPEED by now. So only the remaining movies can be taken up for this ten year challenge.

The song taken up for this challenge is from “Lagan”(1955). This movie was produced by directed by O P Dutta for O P Films, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Om Prakash, Shamlal, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pt Iqbal, Shivrj, Uma Dutt, Parshuram, Kanwar Kesho etc , with guest appearance by David.

The song under discussion is the third song out of eight songs that this movie has.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricisr. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scparwala.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 86 # Asha Bhonsle – Happy 86th birth anniversary#
————————————————————————————

Yesterday 8th September 2019 was the eighty-sixth birth anniversary (born on 08th Sep’1933) of the legendary singer Asha Bhonsle.

We are all aware of the greatness and versatility of this voice and cannot imagine our HFM (for me Marathi film music too) without her voice. She has been ruling the hearts over seven decades or more than that now…

I am not going into the details of her biography, famous songs, popular songs, awards etc etc because her name itself speaks for the ‘greatness’ and her ‘epic’ journey in our film industry and the name itself carries such a vastness in it that one can only imagine the efforts one have to put in writing about her journey in HFM. And that is why I salute to all the authors who have written the various books on her.

She has come a long way and immortalized herself in the Hindi Film music with her singing. We have been reading about her initial struggle and competition with other singers including her own sister the great legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar. But Asha Bhonsle carved out a special place for her and remain favorites of many music lovers.

Her popularity keeps increasing and was always increasing in other countries too. And how popular she was in other countries than India, I came to know while I was once travelling in a UAE based airlines from Abu Dhabi to Ahmedabad. In the flight ‘entertainment box’ when I was looking for various Hindi film audios to listen during the travel, I came across a compilation of Asha Bhonsle containing almost fifty songs starting from ‘Mr John ya Baba Khan’ to the very latest song, I think, from ‘Begum Jaan (2017)’. Her introduction was given very aptly mentioning her as the ‘true Queen of Melody’ and her seven decades long career in Bollywood and singing film and non-film songs and songs in many languages too. (I do not remember the exact words now, but it was very well mentioning of her great achievements in that brief intro).
Then there were compilations of other Indian singers too like Mohd Rafi, Yesudas, Shreya Ghoshal, and Lata Mangeshkar. (I think Kishore Kumar’s songs were not there and songs from Yesudas and S.P. Balasubramaniam were in regional languages of India).

But the interesting thing that surprised me was when I read the intro given for Lata Mangeshkar. She was mentioned as the ‘another giant singer in Bollywood and sister of the great Asha Bhonsle’ :). And like other singers (that I mentioned above) the quantity of songs included for Lata Mangeshkar too was around 20-25 songs only.

One can understand my feelings, as an Indian, when I read that intro and the thoughts going through my mind. Well, nothing wrong in that if we see the other point of view, and for us both of them will remain ‘great and immortal’ always forever.

And, I think today’s song is a befitting song for the occasion of the 86th birth anniversary of Asha Bhonsle. This song epitomises much of what she is known for.

The song is from the movie ‘Koraa Badan-1974’ directed by B.S. Shad for ‘Brar Productions, Bombay’ and was a ‘social movie’ (passed by Censor Board with ‘A’ certificate).

It had Reeta Anchan, Harinder, Bindu, Jayshree T., Paintal, Montu, Rajan Haksar, Shera, Yash Sharma, Prakash Ved, Meher Mittal, Vijay Tandon.
Also, it had Sunil Dutt, Mala Sinha, Dev Kumar, Subhash Ghai, Shobhna in ‘Special appearances.

This movie had six songs penned by Babu Singh Maan (three songs), Kashmir Qadar (two songs) and Mahendra Dehalvi (one song).
Songs for this movie were composed by Vedpal Verma, and Shruti, Kant Verma and Ajay Kumar were his assistants.
Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Krishna Bose and Manhar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.
Background music for this movie was given by Mohammad Shafi.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.03.1974 with restricted viewing for ‘Adults’ only.
(It seems that there was another movie with the same title in ‘2003’, and the online videos of this 2003 movie is available which is wrongly described as movie of 1974.

Today’s song is written by Mahendra Dehalvi and composed by Vedpal Verma. On screen it is performed by Jayshree T., and sung by Asha Bhonsle.

When I initially shared this song in 2013 (on 08.06.2013) the video of this song was available and the link no longer exists
However, audio of this song is available. (there is a little difference in lyrics in the video and the audio of the songs i.e. only for repeating of the same lines in ‘antara’ and the ‘mukhda’ at the end of the song.
The lyrics given are as per audio link available and I have keep the ‘mukhda’ at the end of the song as per the video link).

let us now enjoy this song …

With today’s song the movie ‘Koraa Badan-1974’ makes its debut on the blog.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

यारा आ
यारा आ

चार दिन के हैं
ग़म के ये बादल
वक़्त बदलेगा आ आज नहीं तो कल
चार दिन के हैं ए
ग़म के ये बादल
वक़्त बदलेगा आ आज नहीं तो कल
हुस्न की बाहों में आजा
प्यार की राहों में आजा
ज़िन्दगी
ज़िन्दगी जिंदादिली का नाम है
ज़िन्दगी जिंदादिली का नाम है

प्यार में ग़म का ज़हर भी पी ले तू
ज़िन्दगी जिंदादिली का नाम है ए
ज़िन्दगी ई
