Hullo to all in Atuldom

If it is a post by me then it has to be someone’s’ birthday.

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997). I just thought that it will be a lovely departure from routine to showcase the versatility of the forever young-at-heart Asha.

I am not going to get into her life history in this post, I will just say I am super excited that I am going to be seeing her in person, live in the show which goes by the name Rendezvous with Asha Bhonsle, which I assume will be as exhilarating an experience as the Rendezvous with Hema Malini has been last year. The minute I got the invite for this I had posted it on our WhatsApp group to find out if any Atulite will be interested and we could have gone as a gang. Our dear Rajaji said that much as he would like to be therehe cannot make it. But I am glad that I will have Gajendraji and his wife as company. By the time we had decided on the number of tickets to be purchased the stock of tickets with the organisers were exhausted but Gajendraji was an angel to book the tickets.

So, coming back to the song which I had in mind for the occasion is from a music album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (the only non-film cassette in my collection) which came out when the non-film music industry was booming with albums of people like Hariharan with Leslie Lewis as ‘Colonial Cousins’, Alisha Chinai, Suneeta Rao etc. This was the period when MTV and Channel V exploded on television in the name of satellite television. Songs of this genre were called Indie pop. The album had eight songs all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Leslie Lewis was the music director.  Asha Bhonsle was in her sixties and Majrooh in late seventies but the songs were everything that a young at heart could ask for. It had love songs in all the moods that accompany the emotion- roothna-manana; ikraar- inkaar aur takraar; etc.

For people who are not introduced to Leslie Lewis he is the son of prolific film choreographer Devaraj Peter Lewis – going by the name PL Raj in Bollywood. Leslie used to play guitar at the Café Royal, Oberoi Towers Mumbai and recorded with Kalyanji Anandji, Laximkant Pyarelal, RD Burman and Louis Banks. Starting with 1987, he composed advertising jingles and was nominated for awards from the Indian Academy of Advertising Film Art (IAAFA). In 1989 received an award for his work. He went on to make some famous jingles such as “Doodh-Doodh-Doodh (Piyo full glass)”, “Mango Fruity fresh and juicy”, “Thums Up taste the thunder”, “Santoor Santoor”, etc.

Lyrics

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

sanam tumko jis din se dekha hum ne
deewaana dil kaboo mein nahin
bada pyaara ye bhi itefaaq dekho
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin pyaare
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

agar tum bhi wo chaaho jo main chaahun
to gul khil jaaye iqraar ka
dilon ko milne de kuchh na bolen hum
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka jaani
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

thehro padi hai raat yeh saari
kaahe ki jaldi jaane mann
daale hue yeh reshmi bahen
yun hi lipte raho tum gulbadan
taqdeer se yeh mil gaya mauqa
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

सनम तुमको जिस दिन से देखा हमने
दीवाना दिल काबू में नहीं
बड़ा प्यारा ये भी इत्तेफाक़ देखो
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं प्यारे
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

अगर तुम भी वो चाहो जो मैं चाहूँ
तो गुल खिल जाये इक़रार का
दिलों को मिलने दें कुछ ना बोलें हम
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का जानी
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

ठहरो पड़ी है ये रात सारी
काहे की जल्दी जाने मन
डाले हुये ये रेशमी बाहें
यूं ही लिपटे रहो तुम गुलबदन
तक़दीर से ये मिल गया मौका
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

pal chin
kaliyaan gin gin
tera har din
tab tak rangon se khele
rang jab tak baaki hain bahaaron mein

The year – 1997. For the first time ever (October ’97), an Indian artist is being honored as the ‘Artist of the Month’ by MTV channel on cable TV. At the age of 64, a Maharashtrian housewife who loves to cook, and is a grandmother, Asha Bhosle graced the honors. And mind you, this recognition is voted for by the MTV audience, a population that primarily consists of teen agers. At an age when most people in many walks of life are either retired or contemplating a more relaxed and sedate life, this diva of Hindi film music, went on to completely reinvent herself. At the age of 64, with a new makeover, she rose once again to become the queen of funky pop.

The non-film songs made an appearance on this blog with the songs sung by Saigal Saab. One proud feather that this blog carries in its cap is that all the Hindi/Urdu songs sung by Saigal Saab, both from films and non-film, are now posted on this blog. After Saigal Saab’s non-film songs started to appear on this blog, a general discussion ensued amongst the readers and contributors, wishing to see more of non-film songs posted here, from other singers also. And so followed some more non-film songs from stalwarts such as Pankaj Mullick, Jagmohan ‘Sursagar’, Talat Mehmood, Juthika Roy, Geeta Dutt, Kamla Jharia and CH Atma have found a place here. Lata also has already made a debut in the non-film category, for the song “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo”. And so has Mohammed Rafi for the song “Awaaz Do Hum Ek Hain” .
