It can be seen from the table of 1966 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 133 songs in movies released in 1966.

As many as 104 of these 133 songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 49 movies of 1966 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 33 movies are already covered. So we only have 29 Lata songs belonging to 16 movies of 1966 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Chhota Bhai”(1966). This social movie was directed by K P Atma for Olympic Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nutan, Rehman, Mahesh Kumar, Lalita Paar, Nazeer Hussain, Jageerdar, Randheer, Sulichana, Chatterjee etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including four Lata Mangeshkar songs- all being solos. Three songs from the movie (including two Lata Mangeshkar songs) have been covered in the past.

Here is the third Lata Mangeshkar song from “Chhota Bhai”(1965). Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. Going by the picturisation of the other Lata songs in the movie, the song is undoubtedly lip synced by Nutan. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Diya jaage saari raina nindiya na aaye (Chhota Bhai)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

diyaa jaage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
raah takey vyaakul nainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
geet nahin koi paas pavan ke
aa aa aa aa
sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
soye bhalaa kaise phool chaman ke ae
taaron kaa bhi hai yahi kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
main apni palakon kaa palanaa banaaun
aa aa aa aa
lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
mai teri nindiyaa ko kaise bulaaun
teri tarah vo bhi maane na kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
diyaa jage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aaj ki raat, ye kaisi raat
ke hum ko neend nahin aati. . .

If the previous song in the series was a lament about lonely nights and the longing that accompanies them, this song today is expressing the opposite emotion. The lovers are together, and the lady is now complaining that her lover does not have an iota of sleep in his eyes, and that she is worried for that.

The gamut of human emotions is spread out wide and far. And whatever be the emotional flavor one may select, one is sure to locate a song from Hindi films that expresses that emotion fairly accurately. Continuing with the saga of sleepless nights, here today we have a flavor of sleeplessness that is expressing a complaint against the lack of sleep on the part of the gentleman. The lady is cajoling and chiding him, trying to induce sleep in his eyes. She is asking him what toy he would like to have, and that she may bring to him that which he desires. But the imploring thread intertwined is that the lack of sleep in his eyes worries her.

Word are crafty. They are a double edge sword that say one thing and mean another. The scenario being played out on screen appears to be one of deception. Apparently Ranjeet is pursuing Navin Nischol, who in turn seems to have taken refuge at Rekha’s home. Now both Rekha and Navin Nischol are inside a room, with Ranjeet sitting outside. And the scenario being played out is as if Rekha is putting a baby to sleep inside the bolted room. The song is telling in words that a mother is trying to put a baby to sleep. That is what a person outside the room would surmise, as one listens to the words of the song emanating from the room. However, the scene, as is being played out inside, there is no baby being put to sleep. Rather, the lovers have been thrown together by themselves in the room. The lady is trying to fend off the advances of the gentleman, and is singing a complaint that there is no sleep in his eyes, and that she would rather that he would take shelter in sleep.

The word and the scenario present an interesting juxtaposition. The film is ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ from 1970. Memory serving right, I remember this film being promoted as the debut film for the lead pair of Navin Nischol and Rekha. As later inputs would clarify, technically this is not the debut film for Rekha, and that her first film ‘Do Shikari’ (1978) was eventually released after a delay of many years. I remember seeing the posters and hoardings for this film as a school going kid. And I also remember that a few songs of this film became very popular and were often played on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Deluxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sehgal, a director of certain repute from that era. The list of actors is presented as Navin Nischal, Rekha, Shyama, Jaishri Talpade, Agha, Narendra Nath, Iftikhar, Krishan Dhawan, Ranjeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Sushma, Madhukar, Devi Chand, Pardesi, OP Kohli, Dhruv Kumar, Ajeet Bengali, Mamaji, and Darpan Nille etc.

The films has seven songs, all from the pen of Verma Malik. The music is composed by the duo of Sonik Omi. Two songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here.

Today also is the remembrance day for Manohar Lal Sonik, the senior partner in this duo team of music directors. He had passed away this day (9th July) in the year 1993. This is the reminder nudge from our dear Prakashchandra ji, who has sent in the lyrics for this song.

So this was one of the lesser heard songs in its time, being overshadowed by its more popular siblings like “Sun Sun O Gulabi Kali”, “Kaan Mein Jhumka Chaal Mein Thumka” and “Aankhen Meri Maikhaana, Maikhaana, Maikhaana”. On screen the song is performed by a pre-makeover Rekha, chiding a naughty Navin Nischol, while Ranjeet is seated outside the door of the room.

Listen, view and enjoy.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door base

The contest between a heart in love and the nights of loneliness is as ancient as the written word itself. Poets of yore, across the ages, and to the present times, have all written about the tribulations of the nights of loneliness. Time does pass at its own pace, but for a lonely heart pining for love, it is as if the time has come to a standstill.

The acute anxiety of the empty moments wherein apparently nothing is happening, is something that cannot be explained in words. It is a sensation that has to be experienced, to get the true flavor of the feelings that are ensconced in the words ‘hijr’ (“हिज्र”) and ‘firaaq’ (“फ़िराक़”) – the feelings of separation, the feelings of being incomplete, the feelings of anticipation, waiting, the feelings of incessant yearning that seems to rend the heart asunder.

Philosophers and poets have ruminated over this experience, and have recommended certain pursuits. There is that famous rhyme that talks about counting green bottles standing on a wall. It is based on the children’s counting nursery rhyme – “Ten Bottles on the Wall”. Folks who cannot sleep are recommended to start from, well, maybe a thousand bottles, keep knocking them down one at a time, and keep a count of the bottles left on the wall. Starting from thousand, this process is bound to get drowsy some way through getting to the target of downing all the thousand bottles from the wall.

The other, of course is counting sheep, jumping over a fence. So just keep a count of the imaginary sheep that are jumping over the make believe fence, and continue counting till the senses give way.

The more esoteric recommendation from the poets, especially for forlorn lovers longing for their mate, is to count the stars. Now this remedy may not work in urban habitats in current times – in best of times with normal pollution levels, about a score stars maybe visible. So this poetic bulwark of heartening proportions does not work in a city like Delhi. Ah yes, but in locales where the skies are clear, this assignment can be undertaken in real earnest. On a clear moonless night, the sky looks so crowded with stars, that the mission of counting stars can be a humbling task. And very well suited for the lonely hearts stricken with the malady of separation and longing.

The beauty of the poet’s mind is simply fantastic and out of this world. It goes even beyond this imagination of being assigned the task of counting the stars. Let me borrow some lines from my own article that I wrote for the song “Aaj Unke Paay e Naaz Pe Sajdaa Karenge Hum”. The lyrics of this song dwells on this task of ‘अख्तर शुमारी’ – the act of counting stars (‘अख्तर’) in the sky. The relevant portion of the lyrics goes like this,

maana shab e firaaq bhi
hoti hai is liye
har nabz e gham isi ke
sahaare guzar sakey
naqaam e ishq hijr mein
taare gina karey
hum intehaa e shauq ki
hadd se guzar gaye
lo aaj hum ne saare
sitaare bhi gin liye
ab ae shab e firaaq bataa
kya karenge hum

And I quote from my write up,

The poet has surpassed many superlatives to weave the fabric of words that makes up this song. Let me give you an example. It is quite a traditional concept in poetry, that a lonely lover in the long nights of wait and anticipation, is advised to count the stars in the sky – a metaphor that implies that neither the stars in the sky will ever be counted, and nor the wait for the beloved ever end. This refrain is encountered often in romantic poetry. But the poet of this song does one better, and goes a step beyond. He says that all the stars are now counted, and so tell me o night of long wait what should I do.

lo aaj hum ne saare sitaare bhi gin liye
ab ae shab-e-firaaq bataa kya karenge hum

A superlative expression that rises to defeat even the task of counting the stars. And poses the question, that in my crazed passion, I have even gone ahead and actually counted all the stars, so tell me what should I do now.

The poet’s imagination is endless, and so this discussion can, and will be continued elsewhere. For now, I present this oh so wonderful song rendered so lovingly by Shamshad Begum, that tells about the nights of loneliness and longing. The film is ‘Sona Chaandi’ from 1946. The lyrics are written by Wali Sahab and the music is composed by Tufail Farooqui.

The film is produced under the banner of New Bombay Theatre, Bombay and is directed by RD Pareenja. The star cast is listed as Chandni, Suresh, Kishori, Saroj Borkar, Kamla, Ghulam Rasool, Amrit Lal, Radha Kishan amongst others. There is a total of 12 songs in this film penned by three songwriters – Wali Sahab, Shamim and Khawar Zamaan. This song is written by Wali Sahab.

So let’s listen to this heartwarming winner in the ‘खनकती हुई’ voice of Shamshad Begum. The protagonist is blaming her beau for her sleeplessness – “तेरे बिना नींद ना आई रे”.

Song – Baalam Harjaai Re, Tere Bina Neend Na Aayi Re  (Sona Chaandi) (1946) Singers – Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Wali Sahab, MD – Tufail Farooqui

Lyrics

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door basey. . .

It was October of 2017, a year and 8 months ago. The previous episode of this series was posted then. After that – this long gap. There have been many a sleepless nights in the intervening months. Yet, somehow I could not get back into the groove with this series. And actually, and inadvertently I should say, two songs that I was saving for this series, got posted otherwise, depleting my list of song. Anyhow, not an issue – the wealth of the Hindi film song still will reveal more songs for this category. 🙂

‘Ek Masoom’, a film from 1969, appears to be a film that likely took some time to get going, get completed and released. This film was rare and unavailable for decades, and it has been recently unearthed and then made available in public domain.

It is a lesser known film of Tanuja, who is paired opposite to a gentleman named Salim Durrani. Yes, the name sounds very familiar, but this gentleman is not the India’s cricketing great, as even I had jumped to conclude first time when I read this name. The cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared in one film – BR Ishaara’s ‘Charitraheen’ (1973). The Salim Durrani appearing in ‘Ek Masoom’ is a different person. From checking the Geet Kosh, it seems that this film is the only one in which this non-cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared, just like his cricketing namesake.

The story of this film is the theme of same-face-confusion. A mix up is caused when two individuals who look exactly alike, happen to inadvertently wander into the life space of one another. One of the characters has links to the world of crime. And so, the mix up results in some predictable situations, where one individual is arrested for the crimes of the other. The matters reach the court, and are finally settled when both of them eventually reach the courtroom at the same time, come face to face with each other, and mix up is sorted out.

Of course, in the interim, the lives of the people connected with this same-face duo, become topsy turvy. The gentleman who is the straight and shareef person, is the love interest of Tanuja. But when the suspicions are cast on his actions and his character, misunderstandings are created, bringing agony to the lady.

This song is the result of that agony Tanuja is undergoing, spending sleepless nights – awaiting for some sign of good hope that may dispel her apprehensions, and clear the air around the man she loves.

And so the refrain from the poet –

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya

 The sleepless nights bother those hearts that are torn asunder with the storms of emotions and anxiety. These storms will keep one awake. Thoughts of what could have been and what may possibly happen, rage through the mind. And the sleep – it is far, far away from the eyes.

Another sleepless night. And another song of sleepless nights.

Song – Jo Na Poore Hon Un Armaanon Ne Soney Na Diya  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
din to kya shab ko bhi
deewaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya

jo na poore hon

yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
lakh chaaha magar afsaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
raat bhar shamma ko parwaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
दिन तो क्या शब को भी
दीवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
लाख चाहा मगर अफसानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
रात भर शम्मा को परवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

Blog Day : 3983 Post No. : 15070

My Railway related reminiscences- 2
——————————————————————————————

Couple of days back, I discussed a song of 1991, with my reminiscences of Hyderabad/ Secunderabad, where I was based at that time. Those were the early days of my career and that was my first posting.

That post gave me an idea that I should discuss my experiences of my stays in various places of India during my career. When I began to think about my experiences of those days, many interesting memories came to the fore. So I thought that I should discuss those memories (alongwith movies that I saw at those places) in a series form. I decided to name this series “my reminisces in Railways”. The article accompanyng the 1991 song thus began the fist part of the series.

Secunderabad was my fist posting, but that was preceded by period of probation which was during late 1980s and early 1990s. Those were the days when we would visit various places in Indian Railways located all around the country and undergo “training”. I describe it as “training” and not training because very few people actually trained at these places. It was more like site seeing and getting a first hand experience of how to manage to travel in trains, often without confirmed reservations and often without any confirmed accomodations at the places of our “training.” Those experiences were the real learning experiences for us.

People would form small groups of a few probationers and would travel and “train” together. My group used to be the smallest possible, viz two of us. 🙂

Most of these trainings were of one or two weeks. At the end of the “training”, we would be interviewed by the head of that organisation and then we would get a certificate that we had successfully completed the training. We used to dread the interview and would hope that the head would spare us and give us the certificate without actually interviwing others.

One of these training programmes took us to New Katni junction. We were supposed to undergo training in Diesel shed there. After the end of two weeks, the most dreaded occasion, viz interview with the head of the diesel shed, arrived. The head, one Mr Marcus, a very strict disciplinarian, started to grill the two of us on what we had learnt about diesel locomotives. Both of us were largely clueless on the subject and so I hoped that interviewer would vent his frustration equally on the two of us. My groupmate, Suresh had managed to memorise a few buzz words of Diesel locomotives and I was not familiar with even those words. So, I was singled out by Mr Marcus and he gave me a mouthfull. Learn from Mr Suresh, he at least knows a few terms about Diesel locomotives, I was told.

Suitably chastened, I came out and resolved that I would actually take the training seriously in future. But it was a resolution that I could never keep. 🙂

But that experience gave me an important life and management lesson. When a tiger appears before a herd of deer, the deers need not outrun the tiger. They only need to ensure that they outrun the slowest deer among them. 🙂 The tiger would catch the slowest of the deers and the other deers would escape.

While most trainings were for small durations and they were for probationers in small groups, there were some centralised trainings in large groups and of longer durations in designated locations.

For example, all probationers of all services had to mandatorily undergo two trainings. The first was called “Foundation”” course and it was followed by “Induction” course. These courses would be of one month duration and they would take place at Railway Staff College, Vadodara.

The need for centralised training of Railway officers was first felt in 1920s in pre independence era and a “Railway Staff College” was established in Dehradun in 1930. Within two years, some senior Railway Man decided that training of Railway Officers was a luxury that Railways could ill afford and so that “Railway Staff College” at Dehradun was closed down. Its premises were sold to Army. The present day Indian Military Academy at Dehradun is located where the original “Railway Staff College” stood from 1930 to 1932.

Two decades later, it was once again realised that training of Railway officers was not a luxury but a necessity so Railway Staff College was again established. This time it was set up at Vadodara. Railways took Pratap Vilas Palace of Vadodara on lease in 1949. Subsequently Railways bought this premise outright in 1964.

The magnificent Pratap Villa Palace was designed by Charles Frederick Stevens in 1914. Readers may recall that Bombay VT was built by Frederick Williams Stevens in 1887, who was the father of Charles Frederick Stevens. I find it interesting that Charles Frederick Stevens, though an Englishman was named in Marathi-Gujrati manner, viz. Name of the person, followed by father name, followed by Surname. 🙂

The first principal of Railway Staff College, Vadodara was Mr P C Bahl, from 1952 to 1956. His son Lt Commander Rajnish Bahl of Indian navy married film actress Nutan.

It was in this Railway Staff College that I underwent my Foundation Course. There were around 40 probationers in the batch. They were accomodated in hostel rooms, two probationers in each room.

I had decided that I would take Foundation course seriously, and as a part of my seriousness, I chose a room partner who himself was a serious student. No, not the abovementioned Suresh, but another person named Rahul.

Vadodara was (it still is) a nice place. Classes were held in day time for five days a week. Saturday and Sunday were free.

We would typically go out to watch night show of movies in Vadodara after dinner time. It was on one such night that Rahul suggested that we should go watch a new movie called “Dil”(1990). This movie had two newcomers in lead roles. The hero was one Aamir Khan, who had made a successful debut with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” (1988). The leading lady was Madhuri Dixit, who had become an all India rage after the song “ek do teen” in “Tezaab” (1988).

We went for the night show of “Dil”(1990). We left our hostel at 9 PM and we were worried that we would be late for the show. But when we arrived there, we found that we were well in time. The previous show was still playing. We kept waiting and waiting. The earlier show ended after 10 PM. Our night show began at 10-30 PM, which is too late for a night show to start.

It was well past 1 AM when the show finally ended. In my younger days, I would remain wide awake and aware and would not miss any moment of the movie, not even newsreels and ads. But those days were in the past. I was feeling sleepy throughout the movie. So I missed much of the story and so I was not aware what was going on in the movie.

This movie “Dil” (1990) is not yet covered in the blog. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Udit Narayan and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Milind.

The song is picturised on the lead pair of Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit, both looking so young and fresh faced vis a vis today. But then this movie had come three decades ago !

The song from the movie under discussion is titled “mujhe neend na aaye” , but it was a case of “mujhe neend hi neend aaye” for me in the movie hall in that show. 🙂

Just five days ago, I’d written a post here paying tribute to one of the most loved legends of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, on his birth anniversary. Referred to by many (including me) as Rafisaab, he was a giant in his field. Yet  he remained humble to his last day, never letting success get to his head. He treated everyone with great respect and, in turn, earned the respect of everyone he interacted with.

In the previous post in the blog, Sudhir Jee discussed “neend” or lack thereof in some detail. It turns out that the song under discussion discusses the same topic, and in even greater detail. 🙂 This song liberally uses words like “neend”, “aankh”, “dard”, “chain” etc.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

neend kabhi rehti thi aankhon mein
ab rehte hain saanwariya

Aah, so now we know, the sleep can no longer come to the eyes, for the eyes are already occupied with the images of the beloved. You cannot accommodate two swords in a single scabbard. Or for that matter, two lions in the same cave. So it has to be that sleep will have to wait outside, while the joys of visions of the beloved crowd all the room inside the eyes.

koi chupke se aa ke

Our dear departed President had once made a statement that has now become a quotable quote, appearing in many PR campaigns and posters. He had said, “Dream is not that which you see while sleeping, it is something that does not let you sleep”.

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.
