This is the 17300th post on this blog.

Blog Day :

5279 Post No. : 17300

What is going on today? I am sure this question is worrying the minds of quite a few if not many or all regulars of this blog. Atul ji seems to be in a big hurry today. Seven posts already since his first good morning call at 5 am. Aha, so getting to the century number it seems. Yeah, ok, that’s it, he wants to complete the century, and make the century post today. But why? What is the tearing need? Is there a birthday not known to anybody? Is it a special day for someone on the bandwagon or in the industry? The anniversary page has no listing for today. ये क्या हो रहा है? क्या चल रहा है?

So yes, a mystery has been created by today’s blog activism. Already 7 songs on the board, and of course, the century strike is still to come. Well, here now. 😀

Ok so let me reveal the story in the background. This mystery scramble started less than 24 hours ago. About 5 days back, Atul ji and I exchanged some messages and decided that this century milestone will be an Asha Bhosle special. Some very interesting numbers are co-inciding. So we agreed to search and locate some special and rare song for this event. It took me about day to zero in on the song. I told Atul ji about it, and he agreed. So we planned to make the century post with this song.

So far, we were not in a scramble. Taking it easy, one or two posts a day, maybe get to the century milestone by 5th Jan or so. That suddenly changed last evening. Around 6.40, I got a message from Atul ji. He asked me whether we can make the century post tomorrow, i.e. today, 31st December. And he also shared the reason. As soon as I heard that, I was excited too. We agreed for the scramble, and the scramble happened.

Okay, okay – sorry for the long prelude. I will explain. First, the Asha Bhosle angle. We are coinciding two century milestones for her with this post. I wonder if the regulars have noticed that we have not be posting any Asha Bhosle songs for the past few days. Well, the reason is that Asha ji is at 2999th song on this blog, before this one. So this becomes her 3000th song being showcased here.

Ah, but wait, there is more. Asha ji is also at 1499th solo song with us. So this is now her 1500th solo on the blog. That makes today’s post a dual century milestone for her.

Before her, the two stalwart singers who have crossed these milestones are of course Lata ji and Rafi Sb.  Lata ji is currently at 3829 songs overall, and 2479 solos. Rafi sb is at the second place with 3222 songs overall and 1511 solos.

Now coming to the date, and the reason for the scramble. This is a piece of co-incidental information that Atul ji dug out yesterday. Most likely he was looking at the ten year challenge data for the BTYC 2022 series. So all it takes to guess this angle is to look at the songs posted ten years ago on 31st December 1912. The last song of that day, the New Year’s Eve of 2012, was the 7300th song on the blog. And so now, I am sure the numbers will fall in place in the minds.

Exactly ten years ago, were exactly ten thousand songs before this post. Ten years – ten thousand songs, that is a very telling achievement. Just for comparison, let’s see what came before that. From 19th July, 2008 to 31st December 2012, it is a few days less than 4 and a half years. In that period, we clocked 7300 posts. OK, so the comparison is nowhere balanced. The first 4.5 years come at an average of 1622 songs per year. And the next ten years come at an average if 1000 songs per year. That is quite a difference, which portrays the drop in the pace of posting over the years.

But in my mind, there is another very crucial observation to be made. Just in the fact of sustenance. In the known world of online blogging and entertainment and music, our blog most likely stands out as being the most consistent, the most sustained and the most continuing presence online – among the blogs that are run and managed by an individual or a small group. Yes there are other blogs that continue to thrive and continue to be regular, but they are mostly with corporate or external support and sponsorship. I am sure we all are aware of many blogs related to Indian Cinema and Hindi film songs, that we have visited over the years, but then with time, majority of them have lost steam, or slowed down. There is definitely a fatigue factor associated with this activity too. Sustaining the effort to continue is a big factor. And then, to ensure this sustenance on a day to day basis – I am confident to claim that our blog is without a peer across the wide internet.

So that is the story behind the eight posts that have been pulled together at a scramble within less than 24 hours.

Another coincidence I would like to mention here. Asha ji also figures in the 7300th post ten years ago. The song in that post is “Mohabbat Ka Haath Jawaani Ka Palla” from the 1958 film ‘Howrah Bridge’. The song is a duet by Rafi Sb and Asha ji. As noted in that post, that was the 300th duet song of this pair. Before this we were not noting and announcing century milestones for duet songs. It started with the post 7300.

And so, Asha ji then a centurion, and today too, Asha ji is a centurion.

Coming to the song in this post today. When Atul ji had sent me a query about some very special song of Asha ji for this milestone post, my mind went to this song, and for some very good reasons.

The song itself is very obscure and a rare discovery. As are many of the creations of the music director Sajjad Husain. Yes, the music for today’s song is from the mind of this genius music director, who was not given his due by the industry. The reasons can be discussed and debated, but the quality and the composition of his music cannot be. Par excellence is what comes to mind when we talk of this maverick music director.

The film is ‘Mera Shikar’ from 1973. After his 1963 venture with ‘Rustom Sohrab’, he was lost in the mists of forgotten anonymity for all of ten years. Then we see his name in this obscure and less heard of film that comes in 1973. An then it also disappears without a splash. Other than the fact that it is recorded in the Censor Board registers, and on account of that, it also appears in the Geet Kosh, no one had heard of or mentioned this film for many decades. With the coming of the internet, as access to many obscure things became easier, the aficionados started searching for lost and obscure songs of lesser heard music directors and singers and lyricists.

The difficulty with this film is that a. no gramophone records at all were made and b. the film itself is not available.

The songs of this film were presumed lost for a long time. And then they were discovered. On a spool tape. So now at least the songs are available, albeit it has been a difficult and anonymous journey.

A total of three songs are listed and identified for this film. One of the songs, in the voice of Rafi Sb, is already showcased on our blog – “Teri Mehfil Mein Aaye Hain”. This song was posted more than eleven years ago on 17th June, 2011.  The other two songs have not become available online, although they have been with private collectors for some time now. I first got these songs from my dear friend Girdhari Lal ji of Jodhpur. Then later, these songs also came to me once again thru another dear friend, Zafar Shah of Delhi. When the discussion for this post started, and my mind came to this song, I checked with Zafar Bhai, and he indicated that this song is already uploaded by him on his YouTube channel about six months ago. And so we have this song now available, to be played today as the 3000th song and 1500th solo song of Asha ji.

A vintage Sajjad creation, this song has such an endearing and yet intriguing melody. The verse lines are short and Sajjad Sb has knitted them into his music very beautifully. When we agreed to do this song for this post, I have since then heard this song repeatedly tens of times. And I am not getting tired of listening to it again and again. The rhythm and the arrangements are simply enchanting.

And then of course, the rendition by Asha ji. All I can say is – just listen to the song. And I think you will be bowled over, as I am.

The lyricist – Shakeel Nomani (or Numani) is once again a lesser known personality in the film world. He was a writer and wrote in newspapers and magazines in Urdu, Hindi and English. His name appears as the songwriter in a few films in 1950s and 60s. He wrote all the songs for four films – ‘Panchaayat’ (1958), ‘State Express’ (1961), ‘Daku Maan Singh’ (1971) and ‘Mera Shikar’ (1973). In addition he has written songs in ones and twos for the following films – ‘Sair e Paristan’(1958), ‘Lady Robinhood’ (1959), ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’ (1960), ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960), ‘Flight To Assam’ (1961), ‘Reporter Raju’ (1962), and ‘Magic Carpet’ (1964). Besides writing songs, he has also appeared as an actor in about 20 films. Our blog carries 16 songs already of this lesser known writer.

Shifting gears again – it is the closing hours of the year 2022. Tomorrow will be a new day and the beginning of a New Year. For some time now, I have wondered occasionally, what does a New Year mean. As the day dawns and the sun rises, it will be a day no different than today, or any other day that we have lived through. And when we talk of New Year, there are so many occasions during the 12 months that New Year is celebrated by different societies, different groups of people on different dates. Any way, apologies, I will not continue with my tangential musings.

It is a block time of 12 months that get a new number tomorrow. Different thoughts and different people will associate different expectations and measures and resolutions and plans with this next block of 12 months. And so, wishing all good luck and happiness with all their expectations and plans in the coming year. Also wishing good health to everybody, and a contented peace of mind to go along with it.

Let’s bring on 2023.

Listen to the mesmerizing sounds of the mandolin play, as only one master of mandolin could play. That is Sajjad Husain. Listen to lilting rendition by Asha ji, as she tells about expectations and desires that rise in the mind when one is in love with another. . .

teri chaahat mein jeeyen
teri hasrat mein maren
hai ye armaan. . .

Listen to this wonderful creation – and wonder sometimes, why was this master musician always relegated to the sidelines.

Amen.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #

#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (missing movies of 1973 – A tribute to Vasant Desai)
————————————

Today, 22nd December 2022 is forty-seventh remembrance anniversary of yesteryear’s legendary music composer Vasant Desai. He was born on 9th June 1912 and passed away on 22nd December 1975 at the age of 63 years.

For me, Vasant Desai is one of the great names which I am admirer of and have always been fascinated by his wonderful musical creations. I have been listening to the songs he composed for Hindi Film Music. There is a long list of my favorites of him from Hindi as well as Marathi film music. Today as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from a movie ‘Grahan’ (1973). Some sources also mention this movie as from the year 1976. I think this was an obscure movie of its time. No video of this movie is available on online platform, I guess.

‘Grahan’ (alias ‘The Acceptance’) was directed by Manjul Prabhat for AK Films, Bombay. It had Nutan, Basant Choudhary, Suhasini Muley, Subhash Ghai, Ajay, Vaishali, Shashi Puri, BB Bhalla and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.12.1973.

This movie has two songs composed by Vasant Desai. Lyrics for one song are taken from a ‘traditional folk song’. The song being presented today is penned by Vasant Desai himself. Mahendra Kapoor and Vani Jairam are the voices used for the songs in this movie. Today’s song is sung by Vani Jairam.

As mentioned above only the audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers who have any information about this movie or have watched this movie in those years to share as possible here.

Let us now listen to today’s song and pay our tributes to Vasant Desai.

With this song this movie ‘Grahan’ makes its debut on the blog.

Today’s song is an ‘all female qawwaali song’ from the 1964 movie ‘Jaadui Angoothi’.

So far, I have been presenting qawwaalis from the decade of seventies on the blog. For a change today, I am presenting this one from the decade of sixties. In fact, today’s song was lying with me since long and Initially I sent only the audio of this song (the only vailable version at that time). But now the movie as well as the video of this songs has become available online.

‘Jaadui Angoothi’ of 1964 alias ‘Magic Ring’ was directed by AM Khan for AM Khan Productions, Bombay’. It had Chitra, Manhar Desai, Sheri, Krishna Kumari, SK Shaam, Anil Kashmiri, Jilani, Uma Khosla, Violet, Ameerbai Karnataki, Sujata, Saroj, Sabina, Balwant Sharma, Kallan, Bagla, Chaman, Deva Kumari, Kanta Kumari, Polson and others.

This movie had five songs composed by Suresh Kumar. Lyrics were written by Anjaan and Zafar Rahi. Here is the list of songs of this movie.

Sl No Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 O Sanan Nanana Hawaa Lehraaye Asha Bhonsle 08.09.2020
02 Kahaan Nazar Takraayi Zafar Rahi Mahendra Kapoor 09.01.2014
03 Zamaane Ke Hazaaron Gham…Bujh Gaya Dil Ka Diyaa Zafar Rahi Subir Sen 21.05.2022
04 Ude Nainon Se Gulaal Anjaan Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor
05 Dam Bhar Hai Judaa, To Haal Hai Ye… Not mentioned

HFGK mentions Anjaan and Zafar Rahi for one song each on the movie details page of this movie and in ‘Addenda’ it further mentions Zafar Rahi as lyricist for song number three. The songwriter for song nos. 1 and 5 are not specifically identified. Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Minoo Purshottam, Sulochana Chavhan, Subir Sen and Kamal Barot have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Munshi Nayaab, and dialogues were written by AK Khan. Editing of this movie was done by GG Patil and he was assisted by Rohi Das.

As mentioned in the above table three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Today’s song is the fourth song of this movie to be presented on the blog.

Singers’ name for the today’s song is not mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970). Also, I am unable to identify the actresses who are performing this song on screen. I would request knowledgeable readers to help in identifying the actresses lip-syncing this song. The lady sitting on the throne is most likely Chitra.

While listening to this song when it ends it seems that it is not a full version of this song, but in the movie (available online) also only this much part is available for this song.

Let us now enjoy oday’s song. 

Dam bhar hain judaa to haal hai ye. . .

‘Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin Bijli’ (1971) has eight songs according to HFGK. The eight listed songs have been covered so far, but the movie was not marked as YIPPEEE’D. That is because the movie has another song in it that is not listed in HFGK.

Here is the list of the eight songs that have been covered in the blog so far:-

Here is this ninth song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song that is a Meerabai song therefore lyrics of this song should be attributed to Meena Bai.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of ‘Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin Bijli’ (1971) have been covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEEE’D in the blog.

He was only 48 years old when he passed away in 1951. One of the pioneering luminaries of cinema in Bengal, as it was emerging in the 1920s and 30s, he was a multi skilled cinema person who was an actor, a producer, director, script writer, cinematographer, film editor, make-up specialist, lighting specialist – yes, quite a portfolio of skills.

Remembering Pramthesh Chandra Barua, on his remembrance day today. He passed away this day, in 1951.

Born on 24th October, 1903, he was the son of the royal family of Gauripur (in Assam). His school and college education happened in Calcutta. He got married at the age of 18, while still at college. Later in life, he would be married again twice. His third wife was actress Jamuna, who appeared opposite him in the Bengali version of ‘Devdas’ (1935) produced at New Theatres.

His introduction to the world of cinema was quite accidental. While at Shantiniketan, he got introduced to Dhirendranath Ganguly, who then introduced him to the fledgling films industry in Bengal. In 1926, he joined the film company British Dominion Films. His screen appearances start from 1929, as he appeared in ‘Panchashar’ (debut film) directed by Debaki Bose, and ‘Takay Ki Na Hay’ directed by Dhirendranath Ganguly.

His urge was to have his own studio and produce his own films. The opportunity came in 1930, when he had to travel to England for medical treatment. He obtained a letter of introduction from Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore for French film maker M Rogers. After his treatment in London, he met M Rogers in Paris, and learnt the skills of cinematography from him.  He also visited the Fox Studio and Elstree Studios in London and learned the techniques of lighting and scenario composition.

He returned to Calcutta (now Kolkata) with a load of camera and lighting equipment and set up the Barua Studio and Barua Film Unit. In 1931 he produced his first film ‘Apradhi’ which was directed by Debaki Bose. He played the lead role in this film. The film ‘Apradhi’ is a path breaking film for Indian cinema, from a technology perspective. This is the first film that was shot under artificial lighting. Prior to this experiment, the films were always shot using natural lighting. The use of artificial lighting also brought in the need to change the method of make-up of actors. It is notable that in the experimentation on lighting and make-up techniques, Barua wasted almost 50,000 feet of stock footage, and that in an era when raw stock was difficult to obtain, and was costly. But the film production brought in significant changes to the film making techniques and the technical know-how for film directors and cinematographers.

In 1932, he produced ‘Nisher Dak’ and ‘Ekada’. The latter was directed by Sushit Mazumdar, with story by Barua himself. He also appeared in the role of a villain in the film ‘Bhagyalaxmi’ produced by Indian Cinema Arts and directed by Kali Prasad Ghosh.

In 1932, he produced his first talkie film – ‘Bengal-1983’. It was a brave attempt by the young film maker to tackle a futuristic subject. The film was inaugurated by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. But the film turned out to be a commercial disaster, and Barua was forced to close down his studio due to financial difficulties.

In 1933, BN Sircar invited Barua to join New Theaters. With the skills at hand, and the encouraging environment at New Theatres, Barua excelled in his film making. New Theaters brought him to the zenith in his career as a film maker. His first directorial venture was ‘Rooplekha’ released in 1934. He played the lead role opposite to Uma Shashi. With this film, Barua introduced another new technique for the first time in Indian cinema – use of flashback for storytelling.

Then in 1935 came ‘Devdas’. Barua directed all the versions – the Hindi, Bangla and Assamese, and played the lead role in the Bangla version. Critically acclaimed, Barua’s portrayal of the tragic hero was so lively that it made him a legend. He was all but 32 years old at that juncture.

‘Devdas’ was an instant commercial success. It is hailed as the first social film to enjoy success and popularity as never before. From a technical perspective also, the film is rated very high – for the use of multiple techniques – close up, montage, wipe, dissolve, fade-in fad-out etc. The film also uses flashback and introduced a new technique – ‘intercut telepathy shot’.

In 1936 he directed ‘Manzil’ and in 1937 came ‘Mukti’. Both films were bold and much ahead of their times in terms of the subject matter. Taking off from ‘Devdas’, Barua explores the human relations and love triangles which are extremely poignant and thought provoking. The film ‘Mukti’ is notable in that it is a pioneering effort of outdoor shooting. A major part of the film is shot in the scenic outdoors of Assam. It took almost two decades for the rest of industry to become seriously interested in using outdoor shooting for storytelling.

In 1937, he directed ‘Rajat Jayanti’ which turned out to be a roaring riot of laughter. Considered as the first serious attempt at a full length comedy feature, this film was commercially and critically a success. In the same year, he also directed ‘Adhikar’, which is another path breaking film in that questioned the divisions in society and overtly advocated class struggle.

Bimal Roy and Phani Majumdar started their film careers working under Barua at New Theaters.

In 1940, after directing ‘Zindagi’ starring KL Saigal (coming together once again after ‘Devdas’ of 1935), Barua moved from New Theaters and started work once again as an independent and freelancer. Except for one or two, there are no notable films that came from his work in this period post New Theaters. One needs to mention ‘Shap Mukti’ (1940), which he directed for Krishna Movietone, ‘Jawaab’ (1942) which he directed for MP Productions, and ‘Shesh Uttar’ (1942) produced and directed by himself. It appears that Barua and New Theaters was the magic mix, which faded away when he moved out of New Theaters.

In this phase, he took to drinking heavily, and his health began to deteriorate. He passed away in 1951, on this date.

The song I present today is presumably not released on 78 rpm records. I present an edited clip extracted from the video of the film. Unfortunately, the first line of this rendition is not available in the original film clip that I have. On screen, this is actually a two part song that is listed as separate songs in the Geet Kosh. This song itself is a very thoughtful construction. The hero (Prashant, role played by Barua) is in a phase of depression. His earlier marriage with Chitra (role played by Kanan Devi) is a failed venture and post divorce he moves to rural Assam, where he stays in a local inn managed by Pahari (role played by Nawab), and his wife Jharna (role played by Menaka Devi). The couple takes to this depressed young man very kindly. Pahari and Prashant become very good friends.

A passage is shown where Prashant is off in the woods, and in his melancholic despair is singing two couplets from the original ghazal by Mirza Ghalib – ‘Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati’. Incidentally Jharna is also close by, having come to fetch water from the river. She hears him sing these depressing lines, and then she responds with the second part of this song which is an effort to inspire and encourage the young man.

The notable thing is how the director has constructed this scenario. He takes two couplets from a famous ghazal of a legendary poet, and then attempts to juxtapose that against a positive and encouraging thought that answers to the points of despair raised in the original lines. The response is written by Aarzoo Lakhnavi, and is indeed a masterpiece in itself, as it tries to confront Mirza Ghalib, by showing the other side of the picture.

The music is composed by Pankaj Mullick. There is no mention about the identity of the singing voices. And I have indicated that as such below. Are these the voices of the on screen actors themselves? I do not know, and do not want to make an uninformed guess. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify and confirm the singing voices in this song.

Remembering PC Barua. An attempt to keep alive the memories of this multi skilled pioneer film maker, whose many path breaking contributions have enriched the film making technology and techniques. May these memories be sustained for the future generations.

Song – Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati (Mukti) (1937) Singer – Unidentified Male Voice, Unidentified Female Voice, Lyrics – Ghalib, Aarzoo Lakhnavi, MD – Pankaj Mullick

Lyrics

[koi ummeed bar nahin aati]
koi surat nazar nahin aati
nahi aati

hum wahaan hain
jahaan se hum ko bhi
kuchh hamaari khabar nahin aati
marte hain aarzoo mein marne ki
maut aati hai
par nahin aati
nahin.. aati

hai gila kis ka
koi ummeed bar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi

rakh tu be-aasi pe baaki
aas ka bhi silsila
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi

hai museebat ki bhi ek hadd
is se ghabraana hi kya
ghabraana hi kya
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi

[कोई उम्मीद बर नहीं आती]
कोई सूरत नज़र नहीं आती
नहीं आती

हम वहाँ हैं
जहां से हम को भी
कुछ हमारी खबर नहीं आती
मरते हैं आरज़ू में मरने की
मौत आती है
पर नहीं आती
नहीं॰॰ आती

है गिला किसका
कोई उम्मीद बर आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी

रख तू बे-आसी पे बाकी
आस का भी सिलसिला
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी

है मुसीबत की भी इक हद
इस से घबराना ही क्या
घबराना ही क्या
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी

The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

Song – Tum Ho Na Ho Hamaare, Hum Ho Gaye Tumhaare (Naao) (1948) Singer – Surinder Kaur, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Gyan Dutt

Today’s song is “Prabhat Vandana” from the film ‘Sant Janabai’ (1949).

This post from me is coming after a gap of 30+ days. Luckily the gap was divided in October and November months. I did not want to create a record of missing a full Calendar month, therefore I am sending this post in November. The last time such a big gap occurred was also in October/November months of 2017. Looks like I have to be careful in these two months since both times the cause of the gap was my health issues. But then, at the age of 82 years, these things are unavoidable. After this post again, there will be a gap in my posts as I will be busy with my grandson’s marriage in the first week of December. Then onward hopefully, I will continue my posts as regularly as before this gap.

Today’s song is like a “Prabhatiya” of Gujarat. It is sung in the early hours of the day, presumably as the first thing in the morning, praising God. Indians, in general, are very religious minded. While some may openly do things proclaiming their inclinations – like singing Bhajans, visiting temples, following religious traditions etc; there are , however, people who follow religion in their behavior and thoughts. The greatest advantage of the Hindu religion is that there are several ways of doing Bhakti and one can choose and follow what is possible for him.

According to Bhagwat Geeta and Vishnu Puran, there are 9 forms of Bhakti one can follow as per his wishes. They are….

1. Shrawan ( श्रवण ) Listening to Divine name like King Parikshit
2. Keertan ( कीर्तन ) Glorify God by discourse Like saint Tyagaraj
3. Smaran (स्मरण ) Remembering God by meditation Like Bhakt Pralhad
4. Paad Sewa (पाद सेवा ) Service at the feet of God Like Lakshmi Devi
5. Archana (अर्चना ) Worship for blessings doing Pooja
6. Vandana (वंदना ) Prostration before God doing Sashtang Namaskar
7. Dasya (दास्य ) Service to God Like Hanuman
8. Sakhya (सख्य ) Being friendly to God Like Arjun
9. Atma Nivedan (आत्म निवेदन ) Self Surrender like Meerabai

This is called Nav vidha Bhakti (नव विधा भक्ती ). Each method carries the same weightage. This has been followed since Vaidik times.

During the foreign attacks and cruel rulers, a wake up call to people of India was by means of the Bhakti Movement from 1300 to 1600 AD. This produced many saints and social reformers from Kanya Kumari to Kashmir and from Gujarat to Assam. Saints appeared in all areas of India. During the Bhakti Movement, almost all regions had their own Saints and great Bhakts. Maharashtra has been known to be a well developed modern state, boasting of an Education centre (Pune) as well as a commercial hub center (Mumbai). It is also a lucky state because it had many saints and social reformers from every strata of society. While Ramdas and Dnyaneshwar were Bramhins, other saints belonged to the different castes. Here are some names of saints in Maharashtra….

Tukaram – Baniya, Janabai-House maid, Namdev-Tailor, Gor kumbhar-Potter, Narhari Sonar-Goldsmith, Chokha Mela-Gardener, Soyrabai- Harijan, Eknath-Warkari, Rohidas-Cobbler, Savta Maali-Gardener, Banka Mahar- harijan, Sant Bhagu-Harijan, Kanhopatra- Dancing girl, Sant Sakhu- Harijan Housewife, Sena Nhavi- Barber, Pundalik-Backward etc.

Bhakti movement started in Tamilnadu in the 6th century and spread northwards from 15th to 17th century. Sant Janabai was one of such Saints. The story of the film was….

Jana, a little girl whose mother before dying told her to go to Pandharpur where she will be protected by Lord Vitthal, A merchant who is the father of Sant Namdev accidentally steps on Jana’s hand and asks for her forgiveness. He asks what she was doing in the temple alone, she tells him her story, being a good devotee of Vitthal he adopts her.

Little Namdev likes her from the instant he sees her and accepts her as his elder sister with joy. But the mother of Namdev wasn’t too happy with another person being in the family, but later she too melts to the love and simplicity of the little girl who would become a great saint as we know today.

Jana was assigned the work of washing the clothes by Namdev’s mother. Jana and Namdev hear a group of pilgrims singing in praise of Lord Vitthal and they start singing and dancing. Children in the group who are very thirsty run to Janabai to beg for water from her. “There are many wells in the village, go get your own water” says Namdev. “But we are outcasts, nobody gives us water” says one of the pilgrims.

Janabai pours them water from her pot, the satisfied devotees bless her for giving them water to drink. She gets scolded and beaten by Namdev’s mother for her act of charity towards the outcasts, which was considered a terrible thing during those times.

Namdev being a very devotional man, always sings and dances and forgets the duties of a householder. Janabai works hard for the food of Namdev’s family (wife and two children). Janabai prays to Vitthal for the food, when Vitthal gives her food she only takes what she needs for a day or two.

Namdev had a big debt to be settled, but he was on a pilgrimage to North India. The wealthy man who had lent him money decides to take Namdev’s property into possession. Jana pleads with him and agrees that she would pay all the money back. Jana works night and day to gather the money she needs.

One night she was very tired and fell asleep while working, but when she wakes up she sees a blanket on her and also sees that the work has been finished. Next night she pretends to be sleeping so that she could catch the person who did it. As soon as she sleeps she sees Lord Vitthal appear and do her work for her.

She catches him while working, from then on Lord Vitthal helps her in her work, he sings for her. He fetches water for her and does many things around.

One day Lord Vitthal feels very tired, seeing that Jana puts him to sleep. In the morning when he wakes up, he walks back to the temple with the blanket around his body, his ornament falls from his neck and falls on the floor of Janabai’s house.

In the morning when priests see the statue of Lord Vitthal they come to the conclusion that somebody must have stolen the ornament of Lord. They see a blanket nearby and assume it must belong to the thief. They start questioning everyone to find out to whom that belonged.

Janabai tells them that it belonged to her, priests search her house and when they find the ornament they accuse her of the theft, she tells them that the Lord was sleeping in her house yesterday and he must have left the ornament. People laugh at her, and thinking of her to be a liar, they decide to hang her to death.

They march her on streets, and just before the time to kill her, she prays to Lord Vitthal and he appears to save her. All people bow to Janabai.

This was a film made by Prabhat Film company, which was sinking day by day. After V Shantaram left it in 1942, the company survived by making several Devotional movies which gave money to the company, but could not save it. In fact, the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was the last film made by Prabhat Film company. After this the company was locked out. The Prabhat Studio and its property were auctioned in 1952 and the once famous company Prabhat was closed for ever on 13-10-1953.

Most of the devotional films made by Prabhat were written by GD Madgulkar- who was a famous writer of Marathi. The story and the screenplay of the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was also written by Madgulkar. He wrote some of the famous films of Hindi cinema in later years. He was an accomplished actor also and had acted in several Marathi and Hindi films.

Gajanan Digambar Madguḷkar (1 October 1919 – 14 December 1977) was a Marathi poet, lyricist, writer and actor. He was born in village Shetphal, Atpadi Taluka, Sangli district in Maharashtra. His family hailed from village Madgule in the same Taluka.

He is popularly known in his home state of Maharashtra by just his initials as Ga Di Ma (गदिमा). He was awarded Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1951 and Padma Shri in 1969. He has written 157 screen plays and over 2000 songs in his career. He was called Adhunik Valmiki (the modern Valmiki) of the current era due to his composition of Geet Ramayan (Ramayana in Songs) as the most notable work. 2019 was celebrated as his Birth Century year. The Government of Maharashtra hosted various events and festivals to grace the occasion.

Madgulkar wrote poetry, short stories, novels, autobiographies and scripts, dialogues and lyrics for Marathi as well as Hindi movies. His poems have been adapted to a wide range of musical forms such as Sugam-Sangeet (light music), Bhav-Geet (emotional songs), Bhakti-Geet (devotional songs), and Lawani (a genre of folk songs in Maharashtra). Madgulkar entered the world of movies in 1938 at Kolhāpur. He contributed to 157 Marathi and 25 Hindi movies. He was also an artist. He loved to paint nature scenes. Special mention must be made for the films, ‘Jeewan Jyoti’ (1953) Screenplay and dialogues, ‘Toofan aur Diya’ (1956) – story, and ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957) -story, screenplay and dialogues.

A noteworthy fact about Madgulkar is that during his peak period in Marathi films, he created a World Record. He teamed up with Music Director Sudhir Phadke and director Raja Paranjape. Together, as a team, they gave a total of 11 Hit films in a row in 18 years – from 1948 to 1966 … a record for a Team. He had knowledge of 10 languages including Marathi, Hindi, English, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu.

Madgulkar was married to Vidya (Padma Patankar, Kolhapur) and they had 3 sons (Shridhar, Anand, Sharad Kumar) and 4 daughters (Varsha, Kalpalata, Deepa, Shubhada). The popular Marathi writer, Vyankatesh Madgulkar was his younger brother. His home in Pune (‘Panchavati Bungalow’) has become a place of attraction for his fans.

I was based in Poona during the period 1974 to 1976. In this period one of my local friends took me to Madgulkar’s bungalow and introduced me. When Madgulkar came to know that I hailed from Hyderabad, he was very excited and asked me several questions. I spent about 4-5 hours with him and had lunch also with him, on his repeated insistence. He was a good conversationalist and loved to talk and listen. I will never forget this meeting. Those days he was not keeping good health.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus. Written by Narendra Sharma, it was composed by Sudhir Phadke. It is quite inspiring.

Uma Devi the singer – most people, especially of the more recent generations may not even recognize this name. And if they are film buffs, they may surely be familiar with the comedienne Tun Tun. However, they may not connect these two names to the same person.

Remembering Uma Devi on her remembrance day today. She left this world on 24th November in the year 2003, at the age of 80.

As a singer, we see her active from 1946 to 1959. The earliest reference as a singer is from the film ‘Wamiq Azra’ of 1946. And her last singing assignment is for the 1959 films ‘Jungle King’ and ‘Hero No. 1’.

As an actress, rather as a comedienne, she started appearing on screen from the 1950 film ‘Babul’. And she continued to be active till 1990. The last film she appeared on screen is ‘Dhandhe Ki Kasam’. In the 1950s and 1960s she was quite popular presence in Hindi films. During her career she teamed with many male counterparts such as Bhagwan Dada, Agha, Sunder, Mukri, Dhumal, Johnny Walker and Keshto Mukherjee. In the span of four decades, she appeared in about 200 films.

The song that I bring on board today is from a lesser known film of 1949. The film name is ‘Sumitra’. The names of the lyricist and music director are given, however both are completely  unfamiliar. Checking through the Geet Kosh I find that this is the only film where these two names are appearing. The lyricist is KF Contractor and the music director is HD Subham. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about these artists.

This is a love song in which the lady is expressing her feelings of being completely captured by love. A rare and very less heard / unheard song.

Song – Teri Preet Ne Tadpaaya (Sumitra) (1949) Singer – Uma Devi, Lyrics – KF Contractor, MD – HD Subham

Lyrics

teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
kar leen dil ki baaten
kar leen dil ki baaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

Blog Day :

Today we celebrate a combined anniversary of two singers. Two singers who were contemporary, two singers who were very good friends, two singers whose voices were considered almost similar. It is the birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (nee Roy), and the remembrance day of Meena Kapoor.

23rd November – Geeta Ji was born in the year 1930 in Idilpur village (now in Bangladesh), into a zamindar family. In early 1940s, they moved to Calcutta (now Kolkata) and then to Bombay (now Mumbai) in mid 1940s.  The same date in 2017, Meena ji passed away in Kolkata, after some years of illness. She was in Delhi till 2003, the year when Anil Da (Anil Biswas) passed away, and then she moved to Kolkata.

Geeta ji started her singing career in 1945, with the film ‘Aadhaar’ under the music direction of SN Tripathi. Her last released film is ‘Anubhav’ from 1971, and then ‘Midnight’ from 1972, which remained unreleased.

Meena ji started her career in 1946. Two films with her playback singing were released that year – ‘Door Chalen’ under the music direction of KC Dey, and ‘Eight Days’ under the music direction of SD Burman. Her last singing assignment is recorded for the 1965 film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’, with music by Anil Biswas.

As I thought of writing a combined post for these two singing ladies, I tried to search for a duet sung by them. As per the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate only three duets they have sung. Two of them are already posted here on our blog. The first one is from the film ‘Aadhi Raat’ (1950) – “Main Ne Balam Se Poochhaa Miloge Kahaan”, and the second one is from the film ‘Jalte Deep’ also from 1950 – “Aayi Milan Ki Raat Karo Meethhi Meethhi Baat”. The third duet listed in Geet Kosh is from 1951 film ‘Ghaayal’. The song is “Tera Kisi Pe Aaye Dil…”. This song is not yet posted on our blog. And for good reason. This song is not yet traceable in public domain. The funny thing is that the song on the ‘palat’ (other) side of the record (GE 8739) is very much available – “Dil Toota Hua, Pal Pal Tujhe Pukaare” (singer is Meena Kapoor) and also posted on our blog. But as I started inquiring yesterday evening from my trusted circle of collector friends, all of the replied that this song is somehow not yet available.

But then today late morning, I got information about two other duet songs of this pair, which was very heartening. Just as a side, film ‘Ghaayal’ of 1951 has one other song in which the voices of these two ladies appear. However, this one is a trio song accompanied by GM Durrani. It is a long song, on both sides of the record (no. GE8740) which means it is about 6 minutes long. I was actually preparing to use this trio song for today’s post, but then I got two responses from two dear friends, both sharing information about one duet song each. Very interesting development indeed.

First I got to see a message from dear Gajendra Khanna ji (Bengaluru based) in which he shared info about another duet song. This one is from the 1948 film ‘Hip Hip Hurray’ (aka ‘Chaube ji’) and the song title is “Hum Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Ji”. The Geet Kosh does not list the singer names for this song. I tried to confirm this information, checking with another dear friend Zafar Bhai (based in Delhi-6), and he sent me the image of the record of this song. The reason that GK does not list the singer names is because the record itself does not carry these names. On checking back with Gajendra Ji, he shared with me the audio of the song, and said that the identification is based on the voices on the track. So we found another duet song.

And then almost immediately Zafar Bhai also responded with an additional song. This turns out to be a NFS duet, that makes it all the more rare. The fact that there are really very rare duet NFS songs (of any pair of singers), being able to locate one with these two voices, which have otherwise also not sung too many songs together, makes is rarer than rare.

I decided to go ahead with this NFS song, and dear Zafar Bhai immediately obliged by posting it on YouTube. All the additional delays that bring this post to almost 9 pm in the evening, are my doing. :D) :D)

The lyrics of this song are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani, an eminent poet of his time. Music is from the mind of Vedpal Verma, one of the lesser heard names in Hindi films, who has otherwise a notable portfolio of 70 songs from about a dozen films (this info is till 1980, and there may be more work done by this MD beyond 1980).

The song is a ‘bidaai’ song. A hoary tradition of this land – a song that is sung to bid farewell to a new bride as she starts her journey to a new home, a new family and a new life partner. The words are so wonderfully appropriate. My identification of the voices is that the first stanza is in the voice of Geeta ji and the second stanza is in the voice of Meena ji. I may be wrong, as I am not a good judge of voices. The record label unmistakably carries both names. In case my identification is in error, please let me know and I will make necessary changes.

In the beginning of the song there are a few lines that have been recited by an unidentified male voice. Could it be the poet himself? I cannot say.

Two very beautiful voices, and two very beautiful ladies. Good friends, but singing together only occasionally. Enjoy this very rare treat of an NFS duet song, with lots of thanks to Zafar Bhai for making my day.

 

Song – Jaa Ri Laadli Apne Ghar Ko (NFS) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy (Dutt), Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vedpal Verma

Lyrics

kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna
kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna
kaisi jag ki reet re
kaisi jag ki reet
de di bida mohe hanste hanste
de di bida mohe hanste hanste
kaise hain ye meet
goonj raha kaanon mein ab tak
wahi vidaai geet
ja ri laadli apne ghar ko
yaad hamaari karna
saath tumhaare meri duaaen
phoolo phalo khush rehna
ja ri laadli

oo oo oooo
bachpan ke sab sangi saathi
bachpan ke sab sangi saathi
bhulat naahin bhulaaye
man chhoda babul ki nagri
man chhoda babul ki nagri
tan doli mein jaaye
tan doli mein jaaye
door kahin wo le ke bansi
baar baar ye gaaye
ja ri laadli apne ghar ko
yaad hamaari karna
saath tumhaare meri duaaen
phoolo phalo khush rehna
ja ri laadli

कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसी जग की रीत रे
कैसी जग की रीत
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
कैसे हैं ये मीत
गूंज रहा कानों में अब तक
वही विदाई गीत
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

ओ ओ ओ
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
भूलत नहीं भुलाए
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
तन डोली में जाये
तन डोली में जाये
दूर कहीं वो ले के बांसुरी
बार बार ये गाये
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

Blog Day :

5219 Post No. : 17209 Movie Count :

The recent months have been very different for me as I was going through many things including many thoughts going through my mind. (I will be trying to put them in my write-ups and present them in future on the blog.).

There was a busy work schedule at work whole of July-August as we shifted the whole warehouse from one place to another (around 10 kms from original location). Thereafter it was getting settled at new location and matching the speed with the requirements of Production in the factory. Add to this the daily travel to reach the workplace and coming back to home. I was not getting into the right mood of writing.

And that is the reason I was less active on the blog. But I was never away from listening music and even watching movies in theaters. I had always loved watching movies in theaters and it gives me immense pleasure. So far in the recent one month I have watched four movies in the theaters. I enjoyed all of them.
On the other hand I was getting my daily dose of listening radio especially Vividh Bharati on FM every morning and evening on my way to office and back.

There have been many songs which I get to listen on radio for the first time and in many cases I always wish that I would present them on the blog. But as the days passed I tend to forget the songs listened. The program in the evening, which I listened to most, plays non-stop Hindi song and doesn’t mention the movie-name the songs are from. So over the period, it slips and after few months I get reminded of such songs again or even the songs get played on after a long gap in the same program.

Today’s song is one such song which I had first listened almost more than one and half-year back. I had then thought to present this on the blog. Because this song is a very nice song or rather a gem of a song but not much heard, may be because it is not from the golden period of Hindi songs.

This song is from the film ‘Maashuka’ (1987).

‘Maashuka’ was directed by Arati Bhattacharya for Harshavardhan Films.

She had also written the story of this movie. (Aarti Bhattacharya was a Bengali actress who also worked in Bhojpuri and Hindi movies as actress, script writer and director. From the information given on her wiki page I guess that the actor in his movie Kunaal is the same person whom she married, and who also was an Bhojpuri actor. There is information available on Aarti Bhattacharya on internet which needs to be compiled in detail for presentation).

The film was produced by Rajiv Ranjan Singh. It had Kunaal, Moonmoon Sen, Arun Govil, and Zarina Wahab, with Shoma Anand. Sachin had a friendly appearance in this movie and then there was Amjad Khan above all of them. Paintal, Murli, Asha Sharma, Master Ravi, Bhagwan Sinha, Shivraj, Mukesh Kumar, Anwar, Fanu, Dharm Raj, Maharana, Ratan, Birender, Sushil Yadav, Master Akash, Gupta, Harisharan, S. Madan, Prabha Mishra and others. Pradeep Kumar also had a special appearance in this movie.

Dulal Dey was the screenplay writer and associate director of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Nawab Arzoo.
Editing of this film was done by Bibhuti Bhushan. S Tewari and RK Aroon had written the lyrics of the songs in this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar, Shabbir Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Manhar, Ratna Aroon, Subhash and Kunal have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by RK Aroon. This name is new for me and I am not aware much about this music director. Also there is very less information available about him.

This movie had total six songs. Today we listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Shabbir Kumar and penned by Shardanand Tewary.

I think both the lyricist and the music director will make their debut on the blog with the debut of this movie on the blog today.

Incidentally, when I remembered this song on 26th October and checked for biographical details of Shabbir Kumar it was his sixty-ninth birthday on that day. He was born on 26th October 1954.

We belatedly wish Shabbir Kumar a very happy birthday on the blog.

Shabbir Kumar has sung many songs in the eighties and nineties and I too like many of his songs which I would like to present here in follow-up posts.

For today, let us enjoy this wonderful song …

On screen, it is actor Kunaal lip-syncing the song and also seen in the picturisation of this song are Moonmoon Sen and Arun Govil.


Song-Chaand gagan mein hai tanha (Maashuka)(1987) Singer-Shabbir Kumar, Lyrics-Shardanand Tewary, MD-RK Aroon

Lyrics
