Mukesh and his Composers – 11a

The last post on this series dealt with the non-film songs sung by Mukesh for Ravindra Jain. That was nearly five months back. Some personal and professional matters crept in resulting in the inordinate delay. Though there was enough time for a few posts, the procrastinator in me kept on scoring small victories resulting in the holdup.

The last post by me in the blog was on 28th february 2016. Nine days have passed since then and I have not posted a single post in the blog during this period !

Some unavoidable reasons kept me away from the blog for this long. Despite my absence, the blog stayed active thanks to posts made by Sudhir Ji. I am extremely thankful to him to keep the musical bandwagon going single handedly for these nine days.

It was on 27th August 1976 in faraway Detroit city of US that Mukesh breathed his last after suffering a massive heart attack. He was there with Lata Mangeshkar and his son Nitin Mukesh for live performances in a few US cities. It was the 7th or 8th out of 10 performances to be performed.

Mukesh and his Composers – 7
————————————

Boarding a ST bus in a depot is quite an exercise and we all may have not-so-fond memories of such pursuits. It’s a herculean task involving strength, luck and technique with which you push through the door entrance to get in. Peak hours pose tougher challenge with dozens trying to enter the rather narrow entrance of the bus at the same time. On some occasions a comic situation arises when two people get struck at the door entrance when the sum total of their waistlines is slightly more than the entrance width. For a moment (which to others behind seems like several minutes) there is some sort of air-lock or more appropriately a waistline-lock.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5a
—————————————-

In my last post on Mukesh’s birth anniversary(sab thhaath pada rah jaavega), we saw his association with Khaiyyam in terms of his “film songs”. I had said that I would come back with his NFS for the composer sometime later. Though I was cognizant about most of the NFS, I was not very sure of the complete list and hence restricted myself to the film songs. When I wrote that post, I too was not aware that “sometime later” would mean the very next post, that’s this one.

Harish Raghuvanshi ji the compiler of “Mukesh Geetkosh” (1985) sent a mail to Arunkumar sir, to be forwarded to self, with the details of the NFS of Mukesh for Khaiyyam. Details received from such an eminent and authoritative personality ought to be included and presented before I proceed with other composers. Harish ji’s mail was sent on 22nd July itself, but because of my preoccupations (honestly, it includes lethargy) this post got delayed for two weeks.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5
————————————

Remembering Mukesh (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976) today (22 july 2015)on his 92nd birth anniversary.

The year 1958 was a turning point in the singing career of Mukesh. Though he had started his career nearly two decades back in 1940 and had some remarkable hits in late 40’s and early 50’s, his foray into acting-singing in the early fifties had some disastrous consequences which in my view affected his whole career in some way or the other. The first three posts in this series clearly show that his songs with those composers stopped sometime after 1949-50. And then there are huge gaps before he was called again by the same composers.

Mukesh and his Composers – 4
——————————–
This beautiful Thursday morning let us listen to a bhajan by Mukesh in praise of Shirdi Sai Baba.

The philanthropic and humanitarian deeds of Mukesh are well known and documented. No article on Mukesh is complete without a mention of these activities during his life time. Distribution of blankets to the poor in winter, insistence to share the same boarding as that of his music arrangers during out-station concerts, performing shows for children and neighbours without charging any fees etc are few of the many examples. Also, being the senior-most among many of his contemporaries, he was often a peace maker amongst various disputes that arose in the film fraternity amongst artists. He was often called a noble soul for all these reasons.

Recently, I read ‘In the Company of a Poet – Gulzar in Conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir’ (2012). The book gives a bird’s eye view on the life of Gulzar – from setting his foot in Bombay (Mumbai) in mid-1950 to his continuing association with Bollywood. Before reading this book, I was under the impression that, like many others who came to Bombay to fulfill their aspirations to work in Bollywood, Gulzar was one of them. It was not so as revealed from his conversations in the book. Gulzar came to Bombay not by his own choice but as a part of his father’s plan to divide the financial responsibility of his large family following his post-partition migration from Dina (in Pakistan) to Delhi.
