Hullo Atuldom

Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom (born 24 November 1982) is an Indian amateur boxer, politician, and incumbent Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha. She is the only female to win the World Amateur Boxing Championship six times, the only female boxer to have won a medal in each one of the first seven World Championships, and the only boxer (male or female) to win eight World Championship medals. Nicknamed Magnificent Mary, she is the only Indian female boxer to have qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics, competing in the flyweight (51 kg) category and winning a bronze medal.

She had also been ranked as the world’s No. 1 female light-flyweight by the International Boxing Association (amateur) (AIBA). She became the first Indian female boxer to win a gold medal in the Asian Games in 2014 at Incheon, South Korea and is the first Indian female boxer to win gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. She is also the only boxer to become Asian Amateur Boxing Champion for a record six times. She was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian award, in 2020. She is also a recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award in 2009 and Arjuna award in 2003.

Born as the eldest child, in Manipur, to parents who were tenant farmers, Mary Kom had her schooling at various schools of the Churachandpur district of Manipur. She was participated in all kinds of athletic events specially javelin throw and 400 metres running. She was among the youngsters who were inspired by Dingko Singh, 1998 Bangkok Asian Games Gold medal winner in Boxing and a fellow Manipuri. She switched from athletics to Boxing but kept it a secret from her father who was an ex-wrestler. The family got to know of her involvement in Boxing when her photo appeared in a newspaper when she won the state championship in 2000. Mary Kom is married to footballer Karung Onkholer (Onler) and has three sons including twins. She resumed her training and went back to her winning ways after the birth of her first two children.
(All the above information I have extracted from Wikipedia)

There was a biographical film on her life in 2014 where Priyanka Chopra enacted the role of Mary Kom. The movie had many lesser known actors playing her husband, coach, family etc. Only Shishir Sharma, who played the National Level coach, was the other known face. Even the music composers- Shashi Suman and Shivamm Pathak- were new along with the lyricists Sandip Ssingh and Prashant Ingole. The movie was directed by Omung Kumar and produced jointly by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures. The movie was decent and showed incidents in a cinematic way. So I would suggest that anyone who sees the movie should not complain that details shown is not as it happened in Mary Kom’s life.

How did I land on this movie? Well I was thinking up a post on Priyanka Chopra for her birthday as she turns a year older on 18th July. I was going through her filmography and found that she had sung a few songs in her career which began in 2002 in a Tamil film and 2003 in the Sunny Deol- Preity Zinta starrer ‘Hero: Love Story of a Spy’.

She was Miss World 2000. She has done a whole of gamut of characters including a negative shaded Sonia Kapoor in ‘Aitraaz’ in 2004 for which she got a lot of critical acclaim and nominations/ awards as Best supporting actress and Best performance in a Negative Role. Priyanka has also won the National award for her performance in ‘Fashion’ (2008). If I may add she also managed to find a footing on American Television in the series ‘Quantico’ in 2015.

The song with today’s post is the one she has sung in her own voice. I haven’t seen ‘Mary Kom’ completely so I don’t know if the video accompanying the song is how it happens in the movie or whether the video uploaded on YouTube is a cleverly stitched affair.

Happy Birthday Piggy Chops (a nickname she got during the shoot of BluffMaster! in 2005)

Hullo Atuldom

The last time I had written a post for Mother’s Day was in 2016 – Mere chehre mein chhupa hai meri maa ka chehra . In that post I had mentioned how the idea of mother’s day came about. This day has been celebrated in the USA since 1914 as per a proclamation by Woodrow Wilson declaring the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.

As far as Indians are concerned everyday is Mother’s Day. Only thing is in the last few decades, with the increase in number of youngsters staying away from their families for studies or work or whatever reason, Mother’s Day is another day that we have started aping the west. We find youngsters definitely calling their mothers to wish, and some even send her some gifts.

There are numerous messages that will flood the social media on Mother’s Day. But a Mother will normally wait only for her children’s messages i.e. if it is not possible for the children to be physically present with her. Then there will be some somber message that will say “learn to appreciate your mother, for some are not as blessed as you”. And still others will say “what does she ask for, only a smile or a message that you are fine”. In all these years of being active on social media, I have not come across any message whose wordings have remained in my memory. But what I have stated above is the general gist of messages that will be in our INBOX on this Sunday, it being the second Sunday of May 2021.

And we must salute the mothers of the modern era. The amount of juggling that they need to do so that the schedule of the family is not upset. And most mothers also are earning members of the family. Till atleast a generation before us, these women who were working to earn, so as to supplement the family income, were seen preparing all meals for the family before they themselves left for their work. And on returning home head straight to the kitchen to make dinner and also engage the children with their studies and attend to whatever other responsibilities that she was meant to do. Being a mother had become a though job, and any lady who was not an expert at that kind of juggling was looked down upon.

In my student days, I used to commute by the Mumbai local trains and I have seen ladies shelling PEAS, cleaning coriander etc in the train. There were (don’t know if this is still happening in the trains) enterprising hawkers who used to sell vegetables and fruits, procured from the markets on the local trains of Mumbai. And to be honest, it must have been helpful to the lady travelers as it may have saved them shopping time.

I also know of mothers who have given up on well paying jobs so that they can devote all their attention to the family and children. These ladies doubled up as private tutors so that they didn’t waste their free time and could still contribute monetarily to the family.

And let me not miss talking about a generation of mothers, who are currently in their 80s and beyond. These ladies may not have been as fortunate, as say even the current 50/60 – year old mothers, in terms of getting beyond class 10 in education. But these ladies too, have reared a generation of individuals and instilled values of humanity, taught their children the importance of education and being good citizens – gender no bar. My mother would not have felt proud of her children’s achievements if my grandmother had not encouraged her to study and complete her graduation in spite of being married and a mother to 4 growing up children.

If my mother had been there she would have wished my grandmother just as me and my siblings would have fussed over our mother and my children pamper me on mother’s day. This is the day I also thank the mother in my mother-in-law for being my go-to person whenever I am in trouble, upset or celebrating. I simply love to be around her and learn how she has lived 74 years of her life as a mother.

Mothers have a special place in Indian stories and as an extension of these stories in Indian cinema too. We have movies titled “Maa” (three in our blog itself), “Maa Beta”, “Maai Baap”, “Maa aur Mamta”, “Maa Baap” (two movies with this title in our blog) etc.

In addition we have the classic “Mother India” where the lady had a powerful place in the life of her family members. Saw this movie, recently, with a conscious mind. I was amazed at the strength of the character that Nargis played. This lady could plough her field along side her husband and sons. She wielded a lathi when her son went out-of-line and her teachings; as also on the mean-money minded- lala (moneylender) when he misbehaved with her. This mother-character was a lady made of steel and didn’t tolerate when her son went on to abduct a bride of the village and didn’t hesitate to shoot him in spite of him being her son.
I have seen and read interviews of actresses of the next generation and they all used to say that they want at least one role in there life like the one Nargis played in “Mother India” and realized only now the full meaning of the wish of all these later year actresses.

But that is another story, let us get to today’s song. It is from the 1970 release “Mastaana”. This movie was directed by A. Subba Rao, produced by Premji, had seven songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmi-Pyare. It had a cast headed by Mehmood- Padmini- Bharati- Vinod Khanna and had Shyama, Rehman, Mukri, Leela Mishra, Manorama, Jayshree T., Ramesh Deo, wonder- child (that is how it was in the movie’s titles) Bobby etc. It was an emotional movie showing the bond between a poor-honest man Satya (Mehmood) and Naintara (Baby Bobby) a child of rich parents who misses having her parents when she needs them the most. The movie is a must-see for all Mehmood fans as he was too good in the emotional scenes. This is one of the movies (the other being ‘Lakhon Mein Ek’) where he makes his audience shed a tear or two in addition to making us laugh.

This song is sung by the child Naintara as a stage song at her school’s Parents Day. The parents don’t have time to attend the programme and depute the child’s nanny (Manorama). The child, on her part, takes Satya along for the program and Satya on his part sits in the aisle. The playback for this song is by Lata Mangeshkar.
Salutation and Best wishes to all mothers. Awaiting Father’s Day (in about a month).

Editor’s note-With this song, Anand Bakshi silently completes 1100 songs in the blog as a lyricist. Only the third lyricist (after Rajinder Krishan and Majrooh Sultanpuri) to touch this mark in the blog.


Song-Maine maa ko dekha hai (Mastaana)(1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

maine maa ko dekha hai,
dekha hai maa ko dekha hai
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine phool toh dekhe hain,
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai ae ae
waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai
lekin meri kab aisi taqdeer hai
kabhi jo ghabraaoon,
gale se lag jaaoon
agar naa neend aaye
toh lori woh gaaye
mera mann jiska pyaasa hai
pyaasa hai jiska pyaasa hai
woh laad dulaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin ee ee
waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin
par uske paas zara bhi waqt nahin
hai uska naam bada
hai usko kaam bada
woh devi mamta ki,
hai leader janta ki
maa ke photo ke bina,
bina ji photo ke bina
koi akhbaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai ae ae
pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai
kal aaya se poochha baby kaisi hai
meri maa sachchi hai,
badi hi achchi hai
yeh uska dosh nahin
use kuchh hosh nahin
maa ne duniya dekhi hai,
dekhi hai duniya dekhi hai
ghar sansaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine phool toh dekhe hain
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha,
maine maa ko dekha hai

Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Hi Raasta” (1956) was a movie that was produced and directed by B.R.Chopra with story-screenplay- dialogue written by Pt. Mukhram Sharma. Its songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Hemant Kumar who had Ravi as assistant and Yash Chopra was assistant to B R Chopra.

This is a movie which I saw only recently. It is popular as a movie on widow remarriage. But it dealt with a lot more.

It showed the young lady’s problems after her remarriage. It showed that the lady had a problem getting her son to accept the new man in her life as his father in spite of the new father being his own father’s boss and friend as also the little one’s. The movie tried to find the mental challenges a little boy faces when he is not told the whole truth regarding his father’s death. There are more complexities when the lady gives birth to a baby from her second marriage. The little boy leaves his foster father’s home with his infant brother in search of his father and mother. There are some tense moments (I was on the edge of my seat) before the movie comes to a close.

Daisy Irani (credited as Raja alias Roop Kumar in the movie’s titles) was simply brilliant. And who better to play the young mother than Meena Kumari.
Meena Kumari may have been typecast as a tragedy queen but there have been movies where she has shown her comic timing as in “Azaad”; “Mem Sahib”; “Miss Mary” etc. This movie too had comic moments between Sunil Dutt, Daisy Irani and Meena Kumari. There are also scenes that show her dancing capabilities.
This movie had eight songs and the blog has five of them. Two of the songs are in the same video on YouTube maybe because they follow each other in the movie with a very small dialogue in between.

Song Date of posting
Chali gori pee ke milan ko chali 31 January 2009
Saaanwle salone aaye din bahaar ke 21 April 2009
Bade bhaiyya laaye hain London se chhori 11 April 2012
Chamka ban kar aman ka taara 15 august 2012
Bekas ki aabroo ko neelaam kar ke chhoda 27 November 2012

The above are the songs from “Ek Hi Raasta” that are on the blog. The last post was in November of 2012. Don’t know how the movie has missed being YYIIPPEEEED. This post hopes to take it one step closer.

Meena Kumari was barely 38 when she bid goodbye to this world in 1972. Unbelievable that it is 49 years ago. Paying tribute to this uniquely beautiful lady who had a sweet voice too.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the first part of the song being in Hemant Kumar’s voice. It shows the young mother trying to forget her pain and put her son to sleep and how both of them are missing the father.


Song-So jaa nanhe mere tu to so jaa(Ek Hi Raasta)(1956) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

bhola bachpan
dukhi jawaani
lambi sooni raahon mein
nikle dard liye manzil ka
do khaamosh nigaahon mein
kaun kahe raahi ko
kitni door kahaan tak jaana hai
jeewan ki sunsaan dagar mein
kab tak thokar khaana hai

so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

jaagne ko pade hai
abhi din tere
tu toh so ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
kho ja sapnon mein
tu mere aansoo na gin
tera nanha sa dil
mera gham kyun kare
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja aa

mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
aansuon ki toh ab hai meri zindagi
jaagna meri taqdeer hai baaware
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

It can be seen from the table of 1970 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 130 songs in 54 movies released in 1970. 86 of these songs are already covered in the blog.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 movies of 1970 are already covered in the blog. So 44 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 24 movies of 1970 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1970 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970).

“Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) was produced by Ananthaswami and directed by P Madhvan for Screen Gems, Madras. The movie had Hema Malini, Ajay Sahni, Om Prakash, Bobby, Jagdeep, Suresh, Maruti, David, Bindu, Shabnam, Tuntun, Birbal, Padmini, Manmohan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far. Lata Mangeshkar had sung two solo songs in it. One song sung by her has been represented in the blog so far.

Here is another Lata Mangeshkar song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on a child artist. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. My guess from the starcast is that she is Bobby.

Blog Day :

4414 Post No. : 15814

Today, August 18th 2020 is 86th Birth Day of the poet, lyricist, story, screen-play and dialogue writer, producer and director, Gulzar. His presence in Hindi film industries is an assurance that lovers of Hindi films and Hindi film songs would continue to get the opportunity to watch and listen to the meaningful films and songs. I regard Gulzar Saab as an extension of what Sahir Ludhianvi left in October 1980 – a legacy of poetry in Hindi film songs.

I have already covered a substantive information about the filmy career of Gulzar saab in my articles ae hairat-e-aashiqui jagaa mat on the occasion of his 85th birth day last year and in shaam se aankh mein nami si hai, abut 5 years back. Also, there is no dearth of information on Gulzar Saab on the internet, in the print media and his website. So, I would skip this part.

What a great journey Gulzar saab has with Hindi film industry which began in early 1960s as a lyricist. He became an assistant to Bimal Roy and eventually became a director with ‘Mere Apne’ (1971). During his almost six decades in Hindi film industry, he wrote nearly 700 songs, wrote screen-play/dialogues for nearly 50 films and directed 19 films. In addition, he wrote and directed a few TV serials like ‘Mirza Ghalib’(1988), ‘Noopur’ (1990), ‘Potli Baba Ki’ (1991), ‘Tehreer Munshi Premchand Ki’ (2004) etc. He published many novels, short stories and collections of his poems. Of late, Gulzar saab has been busy with translating in Hindi, poems in regional languages from all over India for their wider dessimination.

On the occasion of 86th birth day of Gulzar Saab, I have chosen a song of a rare combination – Gulzar-Suman Kalyanpur-Shankar-Jaikishan. The song is ‘ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina’ from the film ‘Seema’ (1971). Probably, Gulzar saab got involved in writing the lyrics of a couple of songs in this film as he was the story-screen-play-dialogue writer for the film. Surendra Mohan made his debut as a director in this film. The film was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. The story of the film is summarised below:

Seema (Simi Garewal) has lost her parents in her childhood and she has been brought up by her caring uncle (Abhi Bhattacharya). In her grown-up years, Seema develops a superstition that whoever loved her would get the same fate as her parents. She spends her time mostly alone except with a friend, Rajni (Kanchan) who tries to erase her superstition by saying that she is still alive despite Seema loving her but of no avail.

Seema’s life gets a change when she come across a charming Sunil (Kabir Bedi). But her superstition will not allow her to reciprocate his love. He convinces her to overcome her fear and they get married in a temple. Unfortunately, after few days, Sunil dies in an accident and the fear of superstition returns to Seema as she is pregnant with his child in the womb. She gives birth to Banke (Rakesh Roshan) in secrecy as the society does not know of her marriage to Sunil. The child is brought up by her maid (Chand Usmani) who is kept away from Seema’s home out of fear of losing her child. However, Seema keeps the tab over her son’s activities from a distance.

Banke grows up cosying with Chamki (Bharathi) and also trying to discover as to who his parents are. After a lot of poignant moments in the film, it is Rajni who eventually reveals to Banke that Seema is his mother and his father had died of accident. Seema embraces Banke thus giving up her superstitions.

The song under discussion is a lori which have been picturised in the film on two occasions. First, Suman Kalyanpur sings for Simi on piano. The second, Sushma Shreshta sings for the boy which is taken over by Suman Kalyanpur singing for Chand Usmani as a continuation of the lori. In the audio clip, the entire lori is sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

‘Seema’ (1971) was Jaikishan’s last film. He died while the film was in the making.

Jaataa hoon main mujhe ab naa bulaanaa 10.06.2010

Today’s song is a ‘lorie’ songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lip-synced on screen by Beena Rai.

Also seen in the picturization of this song is Shashikala.

Today (1 june 2020) is pehli taareekh. And it turns out that today is World Milk Day. In India, National Milk Day falls on a different day, namely 26 November, which is the birthday of Verghese Kurien, who brought White revolution( Milk revolution) in India.

When I was growing up, India was a desperately poor country. It was deficient in foodgrains and also milk. Our history books wistfully recalled those days in distant past when India was a prosperous country where “दूध की नदियाँ बहा करती थीं” ( “doodh ki nadiyan baha karti thi). Indians wistfully sighed and felt envious of countries like Netherlands that they were the nation that had doodh ki nadi flowing in their country.

A few days ago, I was watching videos that showed progress of various countries over the years in graphical forms in various fields. In most areas, the graph started showing USA and USSR at top and ended showing China, USA and India at the top. It was heartwarming as a Indian to witness the progress of India in all these fields.

One field that really made me proud and came as a pleasant surprise to me was the fact that India had become the number one milk producing country in the world ! And it has been number one since 1998 !

The Milk revolution in India started in Kaira District of Gujrat. The Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union was organized in 1946 with the blessings of late Sardar Vallabhai Patel. It started with two village milk producers’ societies and began pasteurizing milk for the Bombay Milk Scheme in June 1948. At that time, only 250 liters of milk per day was being handled. by 1960s, 378 village milk producers’ co-operative societies became affiliated to the main union. These societies in turn had about 65,000 farmers as their members. In these villages, there were about 1, 25,000 adult buffaloes of the Surti Breed. During the year 63-64 about 60,000 tonnes of milk was collected by the union. The cost of the milk and milk products sold in that year was over Rs.6 crores. The Union marketed milk in Gujarat and Maharashtra States and milk products on all-India basis. Its trade name “Amul” had become a household word all over India. The union had established an excellent reputation in the dairy industry and had evoked the admiration of experts from many parts of the world.

Verghese Kurien was the the General Manager of Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union Ltd (Amul) at that time. Mr Lal Bahadur Shashtri, the second PM of India, who had taken over charge just a few months back, visited Anand on 31 october 1964. He was very impressed with amul model and he decided to replicate this model all over India. Accordingly, he wrote a letter to all the states. NDDB (National Dairy Development Board) was set up with its HQ at Anand. It began plans called Opweration Flood. It had three phases -phase I , II and III. OF I (from 1 july 1970 to 31 march 1981) sought to establish 18 “Anands” linked to the four urban markets – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. OF-II (2 october 1979 to 31 march 1985) aimed to establish a modern and self sustaining dairy industry, building on the foundation of OF-I to meet the nations’s needs in milk and milk products. Of III (1 april 1985 to 30 apr 1996) focused on consolidating the milk procurement, processing and marketing infrastructure created under OF-I & OF-II.

By the time OF III ended, India was already number one milk producing nation in the world, a position it holds to this date. Today India produces 22 % of all milk produced in the world. Indian per capita milk production (394 ml) is higher than the world average. The per capita availability of milk is the highest in Punjab (1181 ml),followed by Haryana (1087 ml), Rajasthan (870 ml), Gujarat (626), MP (538 ml), Andhra (623 ml), Himachal (565) etc. There are states that have surprisingly low milk availability viz Delhi (35 ml), Goa (71 ml), Assam (71 ml),Chandigarh (90 ml) etc. I am sure these milk deficient states get their milk supply from milk surplus states. India produces 22% of world production, followed by USA, China, Pakistan and Brazil.

When India became independent, per capita availability of milk was 130 ml, which reduced to an all time low of 110 ml by 1970 before it picked up. In other words, milk availability in Indian picked up only after operation flood project began.

I grew up in Bihar (now it is Jharkhand) in 1960s. Even today Jharkhand per capita milk availability is only 177 ml. Those days it was far lower. I can honestly say that my pets have had more milk in their earlier lives that I ever had ! 🙂 Today my sole pet Bhhole consumes bulk of the milk that I get every morning, and that is more than what an average human gets to drink in a day. 🙂 It has been made possible because to the pioneers and foot soldiers of operation flood. This, alongwith self sufficiency in the fields of other foodstuff has ensured that India does not have to rely on imports and it is secure as far as food security is concerned. That has made India a confident nation. None of Indian neighbours, including China, has this kind of food security.

I wondered if there was any Hindi movie songs on milk. One song from “Manthan” (1977) has already been covered, and there were no other songs. Then it struck me that milk products too qualify, and that we have so many maakhan (butter) songs in Hindi movies, mostly associated with Lord Krishna. One can say that Lord Krishna, serving as a cowherd in Gokul, was a brand ambassador for milk products in general and maakhan (butter ) in particular. 🙂

A few songs of this genre have already been covered in the blog. While searching for other songs, I came across this song from “Gopal Krishna”(1979) which fits the bill perfectly. This movie was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Sharma for Rajshree Productions. The movie had Sachin, Zarina Wahab, Reeta Bhaduri, Manhar Desai, Master Sandip, Jeevan etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Gopal Krishna”(1979) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Chandrani Mukherjee which is lip synced by an actor playing young Lord Krishna . I guess that he is master Sandip, with Reeta Bhaaduri playing Maa Yashoda. Lyrics and music is by Ravindra Jain.

The situation is quite familiar to most of us. Some lady complains that Kanhaiyya has stolen maakhan from har matki. An irate Maaa Yashoda is out to punish Kanhaiyya. Kanhaiyya sings this song where he denies the charge. My own home has abundant quantity of Makhan, why would I go elsewhere for it, he explains. As for the maakhan smeared on his lips, he accused Ahir ki chhori of deliberately framing him by smearing maakhan on his lips. He then plays the emotional card- I do your chaakri for the whole day by tending to the cows in the meadows, but instead of believing me, you believe the words of others. 🙂

Very cute and sweet song, picturised nicely. This song is a hidden gem that I became aware of only today.

On the occasion of World Milk day, here is this lovely song from “Gopal Krishna”(1979).


Song-Tu man ki ati bhori o maiyya mori(Gopal Krishna)(1979) Singer-Chandrani Mukherjee, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

tu man ki ati bhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
tu man ki aati bhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
jaako ghar bharyo dadhhi maakhan syon
jaako ghar bharyo dadhhi maakhan syon
vo kyon karan lago chori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
tu man ki ati bhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori

na kaaho ko maakhan khaayo
na koi matki phodi
na kaaho ko ka maakhan khaayo
na koi matki phodi
more mukh maakhan male tore sanmukh
more mukh maakhan male tore sanmukh
laayi aheer ki chhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
tu man ki ati bhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
jaako ghar bharyo dadhhi maakhan syo
jaako ghar bharyo dadhhi maakhan syo
vo kyun karan lagyo chori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori

din din bhar main to dhenu chaaravat karat chaakri tori
din din bhar main to dhenu chaaravat karat chaakri tori
yaahu par tu unki sunat hai
yaahu par tu unki sunat hai
jhoothi kahaani jori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
tu man ki ati bhori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori
ja ko ghar bharyo dadhhi maakhan syo
ja ko ghar bharyo dadhhi makhan syo
vo kyun karan lagyo chori o maiyya mori
tu man ki ati bhori

Blog Day: 4263 Post No.: 15489

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 13
——————————————————————————

In olden days (even today for that matter) Indians were expected to behave in a particular manner. For instance, when it came to their day to day live, most of them were “gareeb” and they were told that they had the sole right on the resources of the nation in the form of doles aka subsidies. All political parties claimed to be pro poor parties and promised to “hataao” gareebi if voted to power. After repeatedly getting voted to power on the plank of hataaoing gareebi, the same politicians now claim to be for the “gareeb”. These “gareeb” are supposed to be gullible possessing of short memory so the politicians can get away despite failing to fulfill their past promises.

Movie makers were no different. They too made movies for the same segment of society that were treated as “gareeb” by the political classes. This section of society was supposed to like movies with escapist stories that bore little resemblance to real life. Depicting real life was considered no no. Movies depicting real life were considered boring. Why would a “gareeb” audience come to the movie hall to watch movies depicting his real dull life ? This was what the movie makers believed in.

Sometimes, some movie makers would make movies with realistic movies. Ordinary movie goers and even press would describe these movies as boring. Most movies like this flopped.

Top stars acted in such movies for creative satisfaction, but the ordinary fans felt betrayed when they would go to the movie hall and find their star sans his usual mannerisms.

Rajesh Khanna is “Aavishkaar” (1973), and Amitabh Bachchan in “Man Aazaad Hoon” (1990) are two such movies that readily comes to my mind.

“Aavishkaar” (1973) was directed by Basu Bhattacharya Aarohi Film Makers Bombay. This movie had Rajesh Khanna, Sharmila Tagore, Dina Gandhi, Denis Clement, Satyen Kappu, Monika Jasnan (child artist), Devendra Khandelwal, Margaret, new discoveries Mahesh Sharma and Minna Johar etc in it.

The movie dealt with a real life “boring” tale, viz the marital life of a couple, played by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. Fans of superstar Rajesh Khanna, who went to the movie hass expecting a movie like “Aaraadhana”(1969) were disappointed. There was no way juvenile fans (including yours truly) of Rajesh Khanna, who were brought up on stuff like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) were going to like this movie.

This movie was only for “mature” movie goers. Just like “rich” people were looked down upon by “gareeb” people, “mature” people, with their occasional boring movies were looked down upon by people loving “mainstream” movies.

Please do not believe the review of “Aavishkaar”(1973) that is carried by wikipedia etc. These reviews are written with the benefit of hindsight by people who were not even born when this movie was released. I remember the reviews carried out in mainstream Hindi media during 1973 which bore no resemblance whatsoever with its review that we now find online.

Coming to the songs of the movie, “Aavishkaar” (1973) had five songs in it. Four of these songs are covered in the past as described hereunder:-

—————————————
माँ को पुकार कर पूछा बच्चे ने
आया कहाँ से हूँ माँ
बोलो तो
पडा कहाँ पाया
बोलो तो
सुन कर सवाल ये
माँ के स्तनों से उफन पडा दूध
और बह आया आँखों से
उत्तर

मेरे लाल
तुम तो हमेशा थे
मेरे मन की अभिलाषा में
तन की परिभाषा में
बचपन के गुड़ियाघर में ए
कितनी बार तुझे
खेलते खेलते तोड़ा आ
तोड़ते तोड़ते ए
जोड़ा आ

पाकर खोया और
खो कर पाया आ है
कहाँ से बताऊँ तू आया है
पडा तुझे मैंने कहाँ पाया है
मेरे ए लाल

तू
हां तू ही तो है
मेरी अमर आशा
सुबह का सपना
माँ और दादी कि
सुनहरी ख्वाईश
प्रेम की परंपरा आ
आग की ख्वाईश
और प्रेम की आशा से
बनी तेरी काया है
कहाँ से बताऊँ तू आया है
पडा तुझे मैंने कहाँ पाया है
मेरे लाल

Blog Day : 3875 Post No. : 14896

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I love masala movies as much as I love movies which are close to reality. I am of the opinion that movies should make us forget our daily tensions as much as entertain us. There were a few movie makers during my growing up years whose films were a must-see for my parents as they were entertaining as well as showed middle-class families and their ways. These movies were generally targeted towards family audiences – ‘Khoobsurat’ (1980), ‘Golmaal’ (1979), ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) etc fell in this category and I must thank Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chaterjee for these gems.

Then there were these absolute entertainers which needed us to keep “logic at home” before going to see them. Else how does one explain the story of a pair of twins one of whom looks much older than the other -‘Dharam Veer’ (1977) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979). How does one explain the jumps in the climax; the heroes begin punching the villains on board a ship – belonging to a Rajput clan- that is anchored at sea but sing romantic songs and songs of friendship in the environs of Kashmir (in ‘Dharam Veer’). Or the heroes are following the villain who has kidnapped their mother through the streets of Mumbai on the way to the Juhu airport (which used to be where people parked their private aircrafts formerly) but strangely the streets look like some foreign land – turns out it was Singapore!! But when the climax scene is getting over, and the villains meet their final fate, all the places that Mumbaikars are familiar with make an appearance on the screen (in ‘Suhaag’).

Now ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Dharam Veer’ are two movies which I must have seen a number of times (have lost count) in spite of all these glaring ‘logic-less-ness’ (I know there is no such word in English language). There are a few other movies which fall under the ‘entertainer without logic’ category- ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Parvarish’ (1977), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Desh Premee’ (1982), ‘Coolie’ (1983), ‘Mard’ (1985) – which I have seen about 100 times (not exaggerating). And it seems the maker of these Mr. Manmohan Desai had the confidence that his audience will lap it all up without questions.

In recent times I have been seeing these series of videos on YouTube wherein Amitabh Bachchan (the permanent fixture in most of the above-mentioned Manmohan Desai movies) in company of Rishi Kapoor was relating how they enacted all those scenes, as directed by Manji (Manmohan Desai’s pet name apparently) even if they were not personally convinced that there was any logic in the scene. The duo specially drew attention to the “mother of all logiclessness” scene – three people lying in a row and donating blood to an accident victim. Now there is nothing illogical in three people donating blood; but blood from the three being collected into a single bottle? And a single tube carrying blood to the patient!!! And has anyone heard of the blood group of RH. Also, Amitabh pointed out how Manji thought the villains were brainless as they could not see through the disguise of 3 people who have gate-crashed into a wedding and singing on top of their voices – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

Anyway, such were the movies of Manmohan Desai in the 70s. He started making movies in the 60s with ‘Chhalia’ (1960) being his directorial debut. Which was followed by ‘Bluffmaster’ (1963), ‘Budtameez’ (1966), ‘Sachaa Jhootha’ (1970), ‘Kismat’ (1968) etc. Of the 20 films he made in a career span of 29 years 13 were successful. He had writers like Kadar Khan, KK Shukla, Prayag Raj, Salim Javed, Anand Bakshi, Sahir, Qamar Jalalabadi, Gulshan Bawra and Shailendra pen the stories and songs for these movies. He had also worked with Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmi Pyare, RD Burman and Anu Malik for music direction in his movies.

Today’s post is to remember the magic of Manmohan Desai on his 82nd birth anniversary and what better song than the one that shows his logical thinking. One patient getting blood from three donors all at once. 🙂
