In the 1950s, many new female singers joined Hindi film industry to try their luck in making their careers in playback singing. Many of them went into oblivion after a couple of years or so. Playback singing career of a few of them like Seeta Kalyanpur, Suman Purohit ended with one or two films. A few others like Meenal Wagh (11 songs during 1950-54), Kaumudini Munshi (10 songs during 1954-68) could remain connected with Hindi film music for longer period but their singing output was low. While some of them may not have pursued the playback singing career due to personal reasons, there is no doubt about the fact that with the emergence of Lata Mangeshkar in early 50s along with established playback singers like Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begum, the newcomers faced tough competition from them.

There are certain special words which seem to be favourites of film makers. These are used frequently in the Titles of films that are made. Some of the words I counted are not surprising. The work Ek (or its variations) has the distinction of appearing most frequently in the title of Hindi movies. Some examples for such titles are Ek roz, Ek thi Ladki, Eklavya etc etc. A staggesring 209 number of Hindi movies contain the word “Ek” or its variations !. This is for the period from 1931 to 2012. The next most popular words are Mera/Meri-165 films, Dil- 121 , Pyaar- 108 , Do- 91 , Hum/Ham/Hamara/Hamari – 87, Prem – 68 , Ghar- 51 , Veer – 45 etc etc.

Finding out details is extremely difficult when it comes to forgotten artists of the past. Hardly any information seems to be available about them. and God forbid, if the name of the artist is similar to some well known artist, then your chances of getting any information on that person recede further, because all the information coming at you on search engines is only on the well known person of the similar name.
