Music Composer – Uttam Singh – 02
——————————————–

We are discussing songs composed by Uttam Singh as music director. In the first post we discussed a song from the ‘1983’ movie ‘Painter Babu’ where music was composed by Uttam Singh with Jagdish Khanna.

Uttam Singh and Jagdish Khanna collaborated as music composers together in many movies. After ‘Painter Babu’, they collaborated in ‘Waaris-1988’. The songs of ‘Waaris’ became very popular and the sales of this movies’s music album created records.

Today we will listen to a song from this movie ‘Waaris-1988’.

‘Waaris-1988’ was directed by Ravinder Peepat for ‘G.G. Widescreen’. It was presented by Iqbal Singh Atwal and Amarjit Singh.

This movie was produced by Mrs. Swarn Yograj, Baldev Gill, and J.S. Cheema. It had Smita Patil, Raj Babbar, Amrita Singh, Raj Kiran, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and Amrish Puri.
Also featuring in the cast included by Sushma Seth, Sudhir Pandey, Ramesh Tiwari, Avtar Gill, Javed Khan, Shashi Bala, Rana Jang Bahadur, Mohinder Mastan, Rita Sikand, Kuldeep Kaur, Ravi Bhushan, Gurucharan Baggan, Ramna, Sardar Sohi, Mohan Baggan, Sarandeep Dhillon, Amrik Gill, Ashwini Bharadwaj, Arvind Kumar, Manju Bhatia, Ram Murti, and others.

This movie introduced Navneet Singh. Amrit Pal, Anjana Mumtaz and Pradeep Kumar made special appearances in this movie.

This movie was based on Punjab Novel ‘Kaare Haathi’ written by Sohan Singh Hans. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Baldev Gill. Editing of this movie was done by Subhash Sehgal. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.04.1988.

‘Warris-1988’ had nine songs in it (including one multiple version song). Vermal Malik, Qamar Jalalabadi and Sardar Panchhi were the lyricists for this movie. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Manmohan Singh and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above music for this movie was composed by Uttam-Jagdish (Uttam Singh-Jagdish Khanna).

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Man Mohan Singh. On screen it is lip synced by Amrita Singh and Raj Babbar, respectively.

Today 23rd June 2021 is sixty-nineth birth anniversary of actor Raj Babbar. And on this occasion, we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

With today’s melodious song ‘Waaris-1988’ makes its debut on the blog.

‘Waaris-1988’ also joins with ‘Waaris-1954’ and ‘Waaris-1969’ on the blog. (Both ‘Waaris’ of 1954 and 1969 are already ‘Yippeeeed’ on the blog.)

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–———-
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 141 # Preet Ki Dori-1971 #

————————————————————

‘Preet Ki Dori’ is  one of the lesser known films of 1971. It probably did not do well at the box office, maybe that is why the film and its music is not remembered. However it does have some very good songs.

The film was produced by Suraj Prakash Seth under the banner of KS Pictures, Bombay and presented by Krishna Kumari. It was directed by Satish Kumar. Story, dialogues and screenplay of this movie was written by R Priyadarshi. The film was edited by Kamlakar. This movie was passed by the Censor Board on 25.09.1971.

The star cast for the film includs Tanuja, Ajay Sahni (Parikshit Sahni), Bindu, Nazeer Hussain, Jeevan, Lalita Pawar, Asit Sen, Roopesh Kumar, Mohan Choti, Tuntun, Kumud, Mishrilal, Nikita, Maruti, Randhir, Santosh Kumar, Pal Sharma, Rajnath, Radheyshyam, Soni, Nazeer Kashmiri, Maqbool, Abu Bakar, Dalpat Kaka, Ajeet, N Reddi, Paul Sharma and a parrot ‘Mitthoo’.

This movie has five songs, all written by Indeewar. Music for this movie is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, and Lata Mangeshkar have given their voices to the songs in this movie. (all songs are solo songs where Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar have two solos each and one solo song was by Kishore Kumar).

Following is the list of songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Song Title

Singer/s

01

Preet ki dori tujh sang baandhi

Lata Mangeshkar

02

O jaane naa jaane naa … dil ki baat Asha Bhonsle

03

Milaa jo hamen tera pyaar

Lata Mangeshkar

04

Roop hai rang hai phool sa ang hai Asha Bhonsle

05

Milaa jo pyaar to ham pyaar ke qaabil na rahe (Posted 01.07.2009) Kishore Kumar

With this Lata song posted, all Lata Mangeshkar songs from this movie will be covered. The song is lip synced by Tanuja on screen. Parikshit Sahni is also seen in the picturization of this lovely song.

This song appears to be complementary to another song in the film. The song “Milaa Jo Pyaar To Hum Pyaar Ke Qaabil Na Rahe“, is a sad song that is sung by Kishore Kumar and is picturized on Ajay Sahni. Although I have not seen the film, it appears that the song being posted today, is from the happier times between Tanuja and Ajay Sahni (in terms of the characters they play in the film). Then maybe things do not go well, and we see Ajay Sahni in a wheelchair, lip syncing the sad song sung by KK. The words in the mukhda in both these songs are similar in part, Just a thought. I would request other readers who may have seen this film to please comment on this.

Whatever songs of this movie I have listened and watched are some nice songs however none of the songs of this movie became popular. Atul ji has also mentioned it in the first song post of this movie, that maybe because the movie flopped at the box office, so its songs had also not done well.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 8
——————————————————–

Welcome all to this eighth post in this series where we are discussing songs performed by Junior Mehmood as a ‘superstar child artist’.

So far, the following seven songs in this series have been discussed on the blog earlier.

1) lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

2) Na koi paisa na ilm banaao bambai mein film

3) Mera naam hai Mehmood

4) Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

5) Aisa banoonga actor main yaaron

6) Ham hi jaanen ek torey manwa ki peer

7) Janamdin tujhko mubaraak ho

Today’s song is from the 1970 movie ‘Bachpan’.

As mentioned in the earlier posts under this series, ‘Naunihaal-1967’ was the first released movie of child artist Junior Mehmood.

He went on to act in many movies as a child artist then. He was the most loved child artist in those years of end-sixties to mid-seventies.

As a child artist Junior Mehmood achieved a ‘Superstar’ like status. He got to perform on many songs or rather many songs were picturised on him during those days.

We are going to enjoy one such song of Junior Mehmood as a child artist from the movie ‘Bachpan-1970’. The today’s wonderful entertaining song is performed by Junior Mehmood and other child artist including Sachin and Naeem (?) and many others.

This song is a different from his’ other songs as a child artist, because here he is not doing any mimicry of other actors or his guru, but in today’s song he is performing as a ‘girl’ or in a ‘female’ get-up.

In today’s song we see all the child artists (mentioned above) are singing and dancing in a police station where Sanjeev Kumar is in a lock-up. From the lyrics of this song we can guess that all these children have a plan to divert the attention of the on-duty police staff in their singing-dancing activities so that Sanjeev Kumar is able to escape from their custody.

The lyrics, music and singing of this song is very lively and entertaining to watch as Junior Mehmood, Sachin performs by lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and lead other children in the performance.

In an interview with Zarina Wahab (available here) Junior Mehmood had mentioned this song as his most favourite song among all the songs picturised on him.

‘Bachpan’ was directed by K.P. Atma for ‘Atma Arts Universal, Bombay’. K.P. Atma co-produced this movie with K.H. Rao. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Master Sachin, Junior Mehmood, Shahid, Anwar Hussain, Mukri, Sunder, Joginder, Baldev Mehta, Keshto Mukherji, Aruna Irani, Sulochana Chatterjee, Tabassum, Pratima Devi, Baby Gayatri, Baby Guddi, Master Alankar, Naeem and Tanuja.

Story of this movie was written by K.P. Atma. Screenplay and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by Shivaji Awdhut.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.09.1970.

This movie had total six songs which were written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, and P. Susheela were the playback singers for the songs in this movie.

Three songs from the movie ‘Bachpan-1970’ have been posted earlier on the blog. Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Aaya re khilaune waala 30.08.2010
Mother Mary maa ham tere dulaare hain 25.12.2016
Prem ka rog lagaa loon kaise jee ko main saanwariya 30.08.2020

I had not watched this movie ‘Bachpan-1970’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s rocking entertaining song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#6)
————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #Year-1983 – The year of ‘Himmatwaalaa’
——————————————————————–

We are back for yet another ‘warmer’ summer. Temperatures are already soaring day by day. e are in the midst of the second summer in the ‘pandemic age’. If we compare it to last year’s summer, this year ‘surge of the pandemic’ is decidedly more serious than what it was in the previous year.

For students also, an unusual summer in terms of classes and exams. And that reminds me of the ‘summers’ in my childhood. We would wait for the exams to get over, which would be conducted in March-April. From May it would be vacations till June 7th (or the first or second Monday of June, hope I am correct) when the schools reopened for the next educational year.

The normal planning for the vacations would be to visit grandparents, playing cricket, reading story books, magazines, comics, cricket-samrat’, ‘listening to music on SLBC, ‘Vividh Bharati’ and ‘listening to BBC Khel Samachar etc. on radio’. Watching movies in the nearby city (Akola) would be one more option. Also common in those days were ‘touring talkies’ which would be camping in the season. After a full day of warm summer, one ould enjoy movies in the evening and night shows in these touring talkies which generally would be in open fields.

That was the planning for ‘summer vacations’ but before that we had to go through exams.

When I talk of ‘summer nostalgia’, I cannot forget the summer of the most important year in my life, and that is the year ‘1983’ (educational year 1982-83) when I was in 10th standard and I appeared for the board exams in Mar-1983 (or may be Mar-April-1983).

A crucial year of studies in one’s life according to the general ‘perception’ in our society (in those years, or it is the same even today?) 😊.
However, we were not having those many comforts we have now. There was no TV, no mobile, no internet, no fridge (at our home).
But there was ‘Radio’ or ‘Transistor’ and there were books and newspapers. Other than cricket it was ‘carrom’ ‘badminton’ and other outdoor games etc.

However, my Uncle staying at Koradi (Nagpur) had purchased a ‘Dynora’ ‘b/w’ TV. And India and Pakistan were having a test series. So, somehow, I convinced my parents to allow me to go for few days and watch the matches on TV and come back.

Imagine, on one side all my friends, classmates were tense, and I had bunked my ‘tuitions’ to watch India-Pakistan matches on TV. My tuition teacher asked my parents to please call me back and when I returned from Nagpur, he humbly requested me ‘aata he cricket vagaire soda, ani abhyasaat laksh ghaala’ (forget the cricket now and concentrate on the studies now) And why not he was not even charging me the tuition fees like my other friends.

So, I concentrated on on studies, but still not giving a serious thought to Teacher and Parent’s instructions I continued to at least play half an hour every day and even on examination days, citing the reason of ‘relieving exam stress’ to my parents.

After examinations it was again ‘cricket’ and ‘movies’ too … And when I talk of summer’1983 I cannot forget the movies I watched during the vacation after appearing for the board exams which was like normal exams for me.

Cassette players had already made entry into our colony and a few people possessed them . So, there were songs and movies. Songs of ‘Nikaah’, ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Himmatwaala’ etc. could be heard anywhere either on radio or ‘tape recorders.’

As a cricket fan, this summer turned out to be the most memorable and unforgettable as Kapil’s Devils clinched the ‘first world cup title’ for India in June’1983.

Given my age that time I was more interested in cricket, movies, books, and study to pass the exams 😊.

Now, when I check the important happenings in our country in that year – 1983 – google had the following results.

● Waiting telephone connections.
● Silk Smitha.
● Khushwant Singh.
● Kapil Dev brings World Cup to India.
● Nellie Massacre tragedy.
● Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

Challenges were still there, and the next year 1984 was a crucial year as we are all aware we lost our Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The previous years to 1983 i.e., 1981 & 1982 saw floods playing havoc in Rajasthan, and Saurashtra & Orissa, respectively.

All was lost for the peoples residing there, but life had to find its way, so the people of this country do, from time immemorial – facing challenges – fighting them – and winning over them and re-creating more than what has been lost. ‘To fight back with more strength after all is lost’ is in the blood of the people of this land.

Ah! but one cannot bring back the lives that are lost.

Today, again, we are facing challenges and our ‘warriors’ from different fields of the society are fighting with the pandemic and helping people going far out of the way of what they could be.

The stories of highest sacrifices done by individuals and group of peoples never cease to hit the media and life goes on …

Here is a song, that could better explain the ‘challenge’, we as ‘human’ must overcome and save our people, help them, and ‘rebuild’ them.

‘The dignity’ of ‘humanity’ should be upheld and protected.

If 1983 was the year of filmy ‘Himmatwaalaa’ the year ‘2020’ and ‘2021’ have been the years of the ‘real heroes’, who have shown exemplary courage during the ‘lock-down-1’ and first phase of the pandemic, and during the second and worst phase of the pandemic.

Whether they are frontline health workers, doctors, social workers, non-governmental organizations providing food and shelters to many, migrant labors, small entrepreneurs, or start-ups … all of them have suffered a lot themselves. and have still helped many to stand in this hour of calamity.

The ‘pandemic challenge’ is not over yet and still a lot needs to be done by all collectively…

Today’s song is the song which I like most from this movie ‘Himmatwaalaa-1983’ and Bappi Lahiri has given this different composition among the other ‘dance-romance-dream’ songs in this movie. Same thing applies to the lyricist Indeever who penned this song.

In the movie the song happens when nearby villages have been washed off due to flood and nature’s fury (in the movie it is shown taking place in Gujarat).
The hero of the movie Jeetendra calls a meeting of the youths and motivates them to join him in collectively helping those who have lost their all.
However, the elders in the town did not agree with Jeetendra and try to prevent their kin from joining him.

This song takes place here when Jeetendra give the clarion call to all singing this song. As it happens the people (Arun Govil and many others) respond to his call and joined him in this mission.

Welcome all to this ‘Yippeeee’ song post after some gap. The activity of ‘Yippeeee-ing’ of movies seem to have taken a backseat amid other posts.

Blog Day :

4640 Post No. : 16300

The musical bandwagon may be moving slower now a days, but it is moving on nevertheless. Everyday sees at least one post in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day for the blog). Since then, the blog has added at least one song every day for the last 563 days.

Today is 4640th day for the blog. On this day we achieve yet another landmark figure, viz post number 16300. In other words, we complete the 163rd century for the blog today. It works out to an average of 28.5 days for one century. So by the time our moon completes one rotation of the earth, the blog completes one century of songs. 🙂

Here I have likened the progress of the blog to moon. But in the past, I have likened the blog to a bandwagon. And on other occasions, I have likened it to a train as well. 🙂

Come to think of it, trains fascinate us nearly as much as Hindi movie songs fascinate us. Trains in fact fascinate Hindi movie makers also. And so we find trains playing important roles in many Hindi movies. Many songs in these movies take place on trains.

When I checked up, I realised that the blog has just over one hundred train songs already. We have 102 rail related songs in the blog so far.

If one thinks that all these rail related songs have been covered by me ( a Railwayman myself), you cannot be more wrong. Most regular contributors of the blog have contributed to this impressive catalog of rail songs in the blog. Just take a look at the chart here to see the contributions of rail related posts and lyrics by our regulars :-

What an impressive collection of Rail related songs by our regulars.

Some of these songs have doubled up as blog century posts as well. Here is the list of Rail songs that have been used as blog century posts :-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Date of posting
2000 Dhak dhak karti chali jeewan ki rail re Dilruba(1950) 27 september 2009
2700 Jeewan hai ik sapnaa madhur suhaanaa sapnaa Honeymoon (1973) 30 july 2010
3500 Main hoon jhum jhum jhum jhum jhumroo Jhumru (1961) 4 February 2011
3900 Ye hai jeewan ki rail Mehlon Ke Khwaab 17 may 2011
15800 Hamaare dil ke station pe bhi baabu kabhi aanaa Fifty Fifty(1950) 12 August 2020

I have decided to use another Rail song as this blog century song. I had a good number of Rail songs to chose from. Avinash Scrapwala, one of the bigger Railway fans among the regulars, had sent me several rail related lyrics and he keeps reminding me about them periodically. I have chosen one of those lyrics for this post.

This song is from “Naach”(1949). “Naach” (1949) was directed by Ravindra Dave for Kuldip Pictures. The movie had Shyam, Suraiya, Kuldip, Raj Mehra, Gulab, Yashodhara Katju, Sofia, Shyama, Wasti, Om Prakash etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

This rail song from “Naach”(1949) is sung by Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and an unknown male voice.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement which has kept this musical labour of love to keep rolling on and on without any stoppages. Here is hoping that we will countinue to keep arriving at many more milestones during our musical journey.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 128 # A Tribute to Anand Bakshi#
——————————————-—————————

Today 30th March 2021 (21.07.1930 – 30.03.2002) is the nineteenth Remembrance anniversary of Lyricist Anand Bakshi. As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1976’ movie ‘Mahaachor’ On this occasion .

‘Mahaachor-1976’ was directed by Narinder Bedi for ‘Dachi Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. It had Rajesh Khanna, Neetu Singh, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Manorama, Anwar Hussain, Krishna Dhawan, Manmohan, Rajan Haksar, Aruna Irani, Sonia Sahni (Special appearance), Master Lollipop, Viju Khote, Rajpal, Narbada Shankar, Jagdish Raj, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Pratima Devi, Rajnath, Moolchand, Ratnamala, Nishan Singh, Chandu, Dhanna, Mishrilal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1976.

This movie had six songs (as listed below) written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ae..ho..aa …mera naam yaaron mahaachor hai Kishore Kumar
02 Hindu hoon main naa musalmaan hoon Kishore Kumar
03 Sun Banto baat meri… naiyyo katni raat meri Anand Bakshi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Main tumse pyaar karti hoon Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 29.12.2011
05 Tu kya mujhe barbaad karega … Lata Mangeshkar
06 Meethhi meethhi ankhiyon se man bhar de Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 18.07.2016

It can be seen that only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The second song appeared after a gap of a little more than four years and six months after the first song. Incidentally today’s song, the third one from this movie, is appearing after a gap of more than four years and eight months (almost about five years). The earlier two songs were posted on anniversaries of Rajesh Khanna. Today’s song is being posted on the ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of Anand Bakshi – the lyricist for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip-synced by Rajesh Khanna. From the picturization of this song it seems to be lip synced after a communal clash between followers of to religions, where this song serves to preach the values of communal harmony

As mentioned above lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

In the year ‘1976’ Anand Bakshi wrote lyrics for the following movies;

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aap Beetee Laxmikant-Pyarelal
02 Baalika Badhu R.D. Burman
03 Baarood S.D. Burman
04 Bairaag Kalyanji-Anandji
05 Bhanwar R.D. Burman
06 Bullet R.D. Burman
07 Charas Laxmikant-Pyarelal
08 Deewaangee Ravindra Jain
09 Dhongee R.D. Burman
10 Do Ladkiyaan Laxmikant-Pyarelal
11 Jaaneman Laxmikant-Pyarelal
12 Jeewan Jyoti Salil Chaudhary
13 Koi Jeeta Koi Haaraa Laxmikant-Pyarelal
14 Maa Laxmikant-Pyarelal
15 Mahaachor R.D. Burman
16 Mehboobaa R.D. Burman
17 Nehale Pe Dehalaa R.D. Burman
18 Tyaag S.D. Burman

The songs from ‘Kabhie-Kabhie’, ‘Dharam Karam’ and ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ stood in the first three ranks respectively in the annual list of ‘Binaca-Geetmala’ that year in 1976. As many as eleven songs written by Anand Bakshi figured in this list of ‘1976’. These included songs from ‘Sholay-1975’, ‘Mehboobaa-1976’, ‘Jaaneman-1976’, ‘Warrant-1975’, and ‘Charas-1976’ as well.

let us now listen to today’s song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. R.D. Burman is the music director and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.

Mazhab kaa raaz khole
Main jab paidaa hua thha
Likha hua nahin thha
Chehre pe naam mera
Sabko salaam mera
Logon ne jo bhi pukaara
Main ban gayaa bechaara
Baat samajh nahin aati
Kiskaa banoon main saathi
Taubaa hai

Main kitnaa nadaan hoon
Mazhab se apne main anjaan hoon
Bas itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon oon
Itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon

Likha padha nahin main
Rakhta hoon ispe yakeen main
Maine kahin suna hai
Kisi shayar ne kahaa hai
Mazhab nahin sikhaata
Aapas mein bair rakhna
Kehne ka ye matlab hai
Ye kaunsa majhab hai
Jisne tumhen bhadkaaya
Aapas mein ladna sikhaaya aa
Tum ho khafaa
Tum ho khafaa aur main hairaan hoon
Mazhab se apne main anjaan hoon
Bas itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon oon
Itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon

Om namah shivay nanah
Allah ho akbar r r r

Mandir masjid gurudwaare ae
Mandir masjid gurudwaare ae
Maalik ke ghar hain saare
Ha se Hindu banaa hai
Ma se Muslim banaa hai
Ha aur ma se jaano
Ham sab bane deewaanon
Do haath paanv mere
Do haath paanv tere
Jab jism hain ek jaise
Phir ham judaa hain kaise ae
Pehchaano main sach ki pehchaan hoon
Mazhab se apne main anjaan hoon
Bas itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon oon
Itnaa pataa hai main insaan hoon

हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता हैं मैं इंसान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

जिसको पता हो बोले
मजहब का राज़ खोले
मैं जब पैदा हुआ था
लिखा हुआ नहीं था
चेहरे पे नाम मेरा
सबको सलाम मेरा
लोगों ने जो भी पुकारा
मैं बन गया बेचारा
बात समझ नहीं आती
किसका बनूं मैं साथी
तौबा है
तौबा है
मैं कितना नादान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

लिखा पढ़ा नहीं मैं
रखता हूँ इस पे यकीन मैं
मैंने कहीं सूना है
किसी शायर ने कहा है
मजहब नहीं सिखाता
आपस में बैर रखना
कहने का ये मतलब है
ये कौनसा मजहब है
जिसने तुम्हे भड़काया
आपस में लड़ना सिखाया
तुम हो खफा
तुम हो खफा और मैं हैरान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

ॐ नमः शिवाय
अल्लाह हो अकबर

मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मालिक के घर हैं सारे
ह से हिन्दू बना है
म से मुस्लिम बना है
ह और म से जानो
हम सब बने दीवानों
दो हाथ पाँव मेरे
दो हाथ पाँव तेरे
जब जिस्म हैं एक जैसे
फिर हम जुदा हैं कैसे
पहचानो मैं सच की पहचान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

Today 23rd March 2021 is the ninetieth remembrance anniversary of martyr dome of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. They were hanged to death by the British regime on 23rd March 1931.

On this occasion as a tribute in remembrance of these great sons of this soil here is a song from the movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002).

As I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog, in the year 2002 there were three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh;

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

I would like to reproduce here what Dharmendra expressed about this movie his home production, (as appearing on the blurb of the audio cassette);

It is not the first time in the history of Indian Cinema that a film has been inspired by India’s favorite revolutionary. And quite honestly, it might not even be the last. This Sikh youth of character so powerful and deep represents the meaning of true patriotism and fearlessness to one and all. It can be assured that every time a movie is made on Bhagat Singh, not one person leaves the cinema hall carrying the same heart with which he arrives. It is not just his sacrifice that moves you; his biggest revolutionary thought and his smallest patriotic action, stir your blood inside. Bhagat Singh cannot be imitated, no matter how impressed you might feel. And yet, the one reason he chose death over life was to create a thousand of his kind so that each one of them could bear the depth of the same patriotic fervor to serve their country.
– Dharmendra

I was staying at Bareilly when this movie was released in 2002 and I had watched both the movies simultaneously i.e. ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ and ‘23rd March 1931-Shaheed’. I remember both the movie were welcomed by huge crowds in their first week of release and thereafter ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ had a good run on the box office, better than the today’s movie.

‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ was directed by Guddu Dhanoa for ‘Sunny Super Sound Presentation’. It was produced by Dharmendra.

It had Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Amrita Singh, Rahul Dev, Akshay Anand, Vicky Ahuja, Divya Dutta, Raja Bundela, Suresh Oberoi, Shakti Kapoor, Vivek Shauq, Samaresh Rautrai, Indal Singh, Sanjay Tripathi, Tej Sapru, Rajesh Khera, Deepak Sharma, Suresh Chatwal, Sachin Khedekar, Manoj Tiwari, Rana Jung Bahadur, Ishrat Ali, Imran Khan, Master Atit, Master Honey and Aishwarya Rai (in friendly appearance).

Screenplay of this movie is written by Sutanu Gupta and Dialogues of this movie are written by Sanjay S. Masoom Editing of this movie is done by Keshav Naidu. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.2002.

This movie has seven songs, written by Dev Kohli. The song “Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna” by Ramprasad Bismil was included in the movie and with it the total number of songs makes it to eight. Songs in this film are sung by Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Vinod Rathod, Hans Ran Hans (as per titles of the movie) and Bhupinder Singh, Mohd Salamat and Veer Rajendra (as mentioned in the blurb of the audio cassette of this movie and in addition to the names mentioned in the titles of the movie).

Today’s song is sung by Veer Rajinder and lyrics are by Dev Kohli. This song is in two parts (or may be three parts) in the movie as per video links available in the domain.

With the today’s song this movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002) makes its debut on the blog.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

Blog Day :

4616 Post No. : 16252

Today is the 8th of March.
A date that has an immediate connect with those who love Urdu poetry, and lyrics of Hindi films.

They celebrate it every year as the birth anniversary of one of the giants of 20th century Urdu poetry, and easily one of the most highly regarded lyricists the Hindi film industry has known.

I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi, of course.
He is right up there as one of the greatest – and I don’t think anyone disputes this.

It’s no secret to those who have read my previous posts here that I’m a massive fan of Sahir. I’ve written many posts on him here – on practically every birth and death anniversary of his. And even some in between.

And yet today is an extra extra special day.

For it’s not just another birth anniversary of his – it is his birth CENTENARY.

Yes, he was born on 8th March 1921 – in other words, exactly 100 years ago.

I need to take a deep breath here to take in this occasion.

What a momentous one it is!

I suppose a centenary is also an opportunity to take a step back and look at what the person’s influence has been over the period in question.

And that is what I hope to do a little bit of here in this post.

Sahir passed away in 1980 – he was only 59 at the time.

But what a life!

Like Lincoln supposedly said “It’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years”.

Sahir lived a life that influenced not only people during his lifetime, but is also inspirational for people, like me and many others, 40 years after his death.

(I hope you can hear this from up there, Sahir saab!)

To understand the influence of Sahir, we need to look at him as more than just a poet.
There were poets before him – and there have been poets after him too.
In his own words, “mujhse pehle kitne shaayar aaye aur aakar chale gaye” and “kal aur aayenge naghmon ki khilti kaliyaan chunne waale”.
And it’s true.
And mind you, they have all, in their own ways, been fabulous too.
We should not demean any of their poetic abilities.

And yet where Sahir stands out, even while being exceptional as a poet, is in being exceptional in speaking out against power and oppression.

No one, NO ONE, did it as well as Sahir.
Or as frequently.

And for that, Sahir is in a league of one.

He exemplified the saying “The pen is mightier than the sword” better than any other poet I know, post-independence, with his poetry repeatedly exposing the hypocrisy in Indian society, and the ills prevalent across various sections of it. He railed against patriarchy and misogyny, against capitalists exploiting labour, against the government silencing dissent.

How can you NOT love such a person?

It all probably started early in Sahir’s life, when, having to choose between his rich father and his suffering mother, he chose the latter.

Maybe that was the trigger for him for the rest of his life, because he always spoke up for the poor, the underprivileged, the oppressed, the marginalized.

Of course there’s more to Sahir than just this.
He had amazing variety too.
Romantic songs. The songs of Hum Dono, Taj Mahal, Gumraah, Humraaz, Shagun and Waqt come immediately to my mind.
Philosophical songs. Main zindagi ka saath, aage bhi jaane na tu, mann ri tu kaahe na dheer dhare, kabhi khud pe…
Bhajans. Aan milo aan milo Shyam saanvre , Allah tero naam and tora mann darpan kehlaaye come to mind.
Qawwalis. Songs of Barsaat Ki Raat and Taj Mahal, for example.
Songs on mother-child relationship – Mujhe Jeene Do, Dhool Ka Phool and Trishul, among others.
Pure fun, zany songs. Sar jo tera chakraaye, aye meri topi palat ke aa.

Each one a gem.

And yet, as I look back on this centenary occasion, it is Sahir’s songs that speak of society, and speak TO society, that I would consider as his most significant and lasting influence.

Without them too, he would be a GREAT poet, no doubt.
But with them, he elevates himself from being just a great poet, to being a decent and conscious human being.

And that to me is far more important than anything else.

So let’s quickly run through some of his poetry where he talks about, or, to, society.
There are many songs of course, but I’ll just mention a few here.

Ye kooche ye neelaam ghar dilkashi ke – Pyaasa (1957)
Ye mehlon ye takhton – Pyaasa (1957)
Saathi haath badhaana – Naya Daur (1957)
Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko – Sadhna (1958)
Tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega – Dhool Ka Phool (1959)
Wo subah kabhi to aayegi – Phir Subah Hogi (1958)
Cheen-o-Arab hamaara – Phir Subah Hogi (1958)
Khuda-e-bartar – Taj Mahal (1963)
Na munh chhupa ke jiyo – Humraaz (1967)
Ponchh kar ashq apni aankhon se – Naya Raasta (1970)
Samaj ko badal daalo – Samaj Ko Badal Daalo (1970)

Sahir’s lyrics for such songs were piercing – they went straight to the heart.
It was as if he was pouring out his agony, venting his frustration at society. Showing it a mirror, exposing its hypocrisy.

For example, these seemingly innocuous lines (Sadhna-1958):

kaho jee tum kya kya khareedoge
yahaan to har cheez bikti hai

mohabbat bechti hoon main
sharaafat bechti hoon main
na ho ghairat to le jo
ki ghairat bechti hoon main

Powerful.

Of course, it was not always doom and gloom in his lyrics.
Even while he was critical of society and its ills, he also wrote uplifting lyrics, with hope in them.
Like na munh chhupa ke jiyo , ponchh kar ashq, wo subah kabhi to aayegi mentioned above.
So it’s a combination of frustration and hope – which is probably a pretty accurate representation of his own personality. 🙂
Sahir was himself known to be fairly moody – cheerful one moment, morose the next.

I can keep on and on about Sahir and his songs – I haven’t even scratched the surface.
I haven’t even talked about gems like “pyar par bas to nahin” – Sone Ki Chidiya (1958). But then, one really can’t do justice to Sahir in one post.

So I’m going to force myself to move on – and get to the song for this post.

Before I get to the song, one other thing.

Today, the 8th of March, is also celebrated as International Women’s Day.

It is such a coincidence that both Sahir’s birth date and this date are the same.

Or was it pre-ordained in a sense, because if there was one person who regularly spoke up for women, their rights, how they’ve been oppressed, it was Sahir.

Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko from Sadhna-1958 is of course one of Hindi cinema’s classics. I’ve heard this song many times – and every time it gives me a punch in the gut.

But there were other lesser-known songs too.

And this song which I’m posting today is in that category.

It is from Jiyo Aur Jeene Do (1982).

Since Sahir passed away in 1980, I’m presuming this was one of his last few songs.
Or maybe he had written this earlier, but it got used only later in this film.

Anyway, as usual, it is Avinashji who has helped me with this.
He sent me the lyrics – and, considering it is Sahir’s Day AND Woman’s Day today, it seems to be just the right song for the occasion.

I haven’t seen the film, so I can’t comment about the situation, but the words of the song are powerful – and typically Sahir.

As usual, he talks about exploitation of women in Indian society.
And he references often to Seeta to bring home his point.
How women even today have to go through Agni Pariksha like Seeta had to.
How every woman is expected to just accept oppression without protest.
How even Seeta, who accompanied Ram during his exile, had to listen to his admonition of her.
How a woman can be expected to save herself in a world that has been created for man.
How, when even Ram could be influenced against Seeta, what hope for mere mortals?
How it is the lot of women like Seeta to be born in every era only to bear the burdens of this world.

I must admit the lyrics are very depressing.
Possibly some of the most depressing I have ever come across.
And I’d really like to think the lyrics are also highly exaggerated, and this isn’t today’s reality anyway. After all these lyrics are from more than 40 years ago, and a lot has changed since.

Or has it?

Yes, on one level, it has.
Many more women are better off today than they were 40 years ago.
More educated, more independent.
And yet, most of these are probably from middle- or upper classes of society.
(And even amongst them, there are many horror stories that don’t come to light).
But beyond these, there are many millions of women in India for whom life is a daily struggle.
From the moment they wake up early in the morning, to the moment they finally go to sleep that night, it is a day of just work, work and work. Women are taken so much for granted that society expects nothing less from them.
A woman just relaxing or enjoying herself is a rare sight – it almost seems out of place.
And so many women (especially among the poor) have sadly internalized this lifestyle of struggle, so they think it’s the most normal thing to do.
And I haven’t even talked about women’s safety here – that’s another minefield of a topic where, thanks to men, women don’t feel safe at all anytime during the day, every single day of their lives.
As a man, enjoying freedom that I take for granted, I just cannot imagine how it must be to live like this. All one’s life.

So yes, LOTS to think about.
And LOTS of work to do.
And the ball is in the court of MEN, not WOMEN.
For the simple reason that the cause of the problem is MEN, not WOMEN.

So then I think, however depressing the lyrics of this Sahir song are, are they more depressing than the actual lives of many women in India?

Anyway, this is supposed to be a day of celebration – I do not want to spoil the mood.
And yet, I cannot pretend – so if you don’t mind, I’d like it to be treated as a day of reflection for men too. Sahir would’ve liked that.

Thank you, Sahir saab, for your searing poetry. And for always standing up for the oppressed, and raising awareness on the right issues.
It is entirely our failing as a society that we have failed to make the lyrics you wrote all those decades ago irrelevant.
They are just as relevant today as they were when they were written.

And on that extremely sobering note, let me now end this post.
Thank you for reading.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Chup chup apni jaan pe sah jaa aa aa
Duniya ka anyaay
Koyi nahin is dharti par
Jo tera dard bataaye

Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Dukh sah ke bhi mukh se kuchh na kahe
Man ko dheeraj ki shikshaa de
Seeta ke liye likha hai yahi

Gairon ke kadwe bol sune
Apnon ka atyaachaar sahe
Gairon ke ae kadwe bol sune
Apnon ka atyaachaar sahe
Jis Raam ke sang ban ban bhatke
Us Raam ki bhi dutkaar sahe
Dharti mein samaane se pehle
Dharti mein samaane se pehle
Dharti ki tarah har bhaar sahe
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi

Purushon ki banaayi duniyaa mein
Kya ik naari ka maan bache
Purushon ki banaayi ee duniyaa mein
Kya ik naari ka maan bache
Jis zahar se Raam ka man na bachaa
Us zahar se kya insaan bache
Jo reet yugon se jaari hai
Jo reet yugon se jaari hai
Us reet se kaise jaan bache
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

Is andhi bahri nagari mein
Jab jab Seeta ko aana hai
Is andhi bahri nagari mein
Jab jab Seeta ko aana hai
Jeete ji kasht uthhaana
Marne pe sati kahlaana hai
Marne ae pe sati kahlaana hai
Itihaas ke pannon ko sadiyon
Itihaas ke pannon ko sadiyon
Yoon hi ye katha dohraana hai
Seeta ke liye likkha hai yahi
Har yug mein ae agnipareekshaa de
Dukh sah ke bhi mukh se kuchh na kahe
Man ko dheeraj ki shikshaa de
Seeta ke liye likha hai yahi

चुप चुप अपनी जान पे सह जा आ
दुनिया का अन्याय
कोई नहीं इस धरती पर
जो तेरा दर्द बटाय

सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
दुःख सह के भी मुख से कुछ न कहे
मन को धीरज की शिक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

गैरों के कडवे बोल सुने
अपनों का अत्याचार सहे
गैरों के ए कडवे बोल सुने
अपनों का अत्याचार सहे ए
जिस राम के संग बन बन भटके
उस राम की भी दुत्कार सहे
धरती में समाने से पहले
धरती में समाने से पहले
धरती की तरह हर भार सहे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

पुरुषों की बनायी दुनिया में
क्या इक नारी का मान बचे
पुरुषों की बनायी ई दुनिया में
क्या इक नारी का मान बचे
जिस ज़हर से राम का मन न बचा
उस ज़हर से क्या इंसान बचे
जो रीत युगों से जारी है
जो रीत युगों से जारी है

जब जब सीता को आना है
इस अंधी बहरी नगरी में
जब जब सीता को आना है
जीते जी कष्ट उठाना
मरने पे सती कहलाना है
मरने ए पे सती कहलाना है
इतिहास के पन्नो को सदियों
इतिहास के पन्नो को सदियों
यूँ ही ये कथा दोहराना है

सीता के लिए लिखा है यही
हर युग में ए अग्निपरीक्षा दे
दुःख सह के भी मुख से कुछ न कहे
मन को धीरज की शिक्षा दे
सीता के लिए लिखा है यही

Rafi Sahab’s legendary associations: 02
—————————————————-

Saahir Ludhianvi’s 100th birth anniversary
———————————————————————
It is Sahir Ludhianvi’s 100th birth anniversary on 08/03/2021 and I have the good fortune of writing for the last remaining song/snippet from ‘Pyasa’ 1957 to post on this occassion. There is no better showcase then the musical canvas of this classic film, I could not ask for a better opportunity. Thank you Avinash ji for giving me this gift.

It is arguably the best of Sahir, among the very best of S. D. Burman and most intense music score by him. It was Rafi sahab’s voice that becomes the poet and the poet becomes a Rafi personified because of the voice over in playback, in romance, in confusion, in jest, in irritation, in poetic narration, in bitterness, inebriation, in rebellion, and in cursing. Sahir made the so-called curse words in urdu palpable in poetry.

This is the list of all songs of “Pyaasa(1957)” already posted in the blog:

S. D. Burman was never averse to having both Lata and Asha Bhonsle sing for his song, but they are conspicuously absent in this music score. Geeta Dutt is singing for both Waheeda Rehman and Mala Sinha in this film.

My post on Sahir Ludhianvi’s remembrance day in 2020 is for the song where I have highlighted the effect of Iqbal on the Sahir and his poetry. This blog is one of the widely followed and read serious blogs on film music, and I thought, the aficionados of Sahir’s poetry would have some opinion to put forward, regarding my theory which I gave in that post.

I am reproducing a brief intro of Sahir from the book “Yeh un dinon ki baat hai” by Yasir Abbasi :

“Talkhi (bitterness) entered Sahir’s life early when his father chose to name him Abdul Ha’ee purely to spite a nieghbour. With a troubled childhood behind, he was still in his early 20’s when he stormed the literary arena with his first collection of poems, Talkhiyaan(1944). Films beckoned with Aazadi ke rahh par (1948), but it was with Naujawan and Baazi (both in 1951) – that he arrived with a bang. Widely regarded as the finest lyricist to grace Hindi cinema, he scaled dizzying heights with Pyaasa (1957). He was always vociferously critical of any kind of oppression, and in his indictment of social ills, he spared no one – be it the society(Aurat ne janam diya – Sadhna/1958), a bygone emperor (mere mehboob kahin aur – Ghazal/1964) or God (aasman pe hai khuda – Phir subah hogi/1958). Yet the same man could stir up romance like no one else when he wrote Abhi na jaao chhod kar (Hum dono/1961) or kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayaal aata hai (Kabhie kabhie/1976). Temperamental but absolutely sublime at his craft, Sahir Ludhianvi elevated the lyricist in hindi films and raised the bench mark to a level that a few could touch.”

I have no arguments with the above introduction, but to add a few more dimensions in the expressing the intricacies of human relationship and romantic entanglements, Sahir’s intro is incomplete without these songs:

1. Tum agar mujh ko na chaaho to koyi baat nahin
2. Chalo ek baar phir se ajnabi ban jaayen
3. Zindagi bhar nahi bhulegi wo barsaat ki raat
4. Jo baat tujh mein hai teri tasveer mein nahin

There are many more, but the above should give a fair idea of the term ‘absolutely sublime’ in the above intro.

One more small para in the same book, an absolute gem, is this:

Aisa mehsoos hota hai ki Sahir ne apni shakhsiyat ka saara gudaaz shai’ri mein bhar diya hai aur sha’iri ki saari jaaduiyat apne khat-o-khaal mein jazb kar li hai. Aaine se aaina-gar ka ubharna lateefa hi sahi lekin Talkhiyaan ka mutaal’aa keejiye to uss ke musannif ki rooh bolti dikhaayi degi – musannif se baatein keejiye to ma’aloom hogaa aap us ki nazmein padh rahe hain.

Here is a list compiled by Avinash ji of the songs/films of the team of SDB and Sahir.

Total 135 134 140

The list ends abruptly in 1957, as the association between Sahir and SDB ended soon after the master piece Pyaasa.

Rafi sahab’s association with both these geniuses continued independently till the end of their lives. Here is their tally in the blog:

Name No of songs in the blog No of songs in the career
S. D. Burman 641 87 movies (666)
Sahir Ludhianvi 652 724

All the available songs by Rafi sahab under S. D. Burman are already posted in the blog. A few more Rafi songs written by Sahir remain to be posted.

Song-Gham is qadar badhe ke main ghabra ke pi gaya (Pyaasa)(1957) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

gham is qadar badhe
ke main ghabraa ke pee gayaa
is dil ki bebasi pe taras khaa ke
pee gayaa
thhukraa rahaa thhaa mujhko
badi der se jahaan
thhukraa rahaa thhaa mujhko
badi der se jahaan
main aaj sab jahaan ko
thhukraa ke pee gayaa aa …
main aaj sab jahaan ko
thhukraa ke pee gayaa aa …

ग़म इस क़दर बढे
के मैं घबरा के पी गया
इस दिल कि बेबसी पे तरस खा के
पी गया
ठुकरा रहा था मुझको
बड़ी देर से जहां
ठुकरा रहा था मुझको
बड़ी देर से जहां
मैं आज सब जहां को
ठुकरा के पी गया…
मैं आज सब जहां को
ठुकरा के पी गया…
