Jaganmoy Mitra – that is the name behind the voice of such incredible gems as “Ye Na Bataa Sakoonga Main, Dil Ko Hai Tum Se Pyaar Kyun”, “Aankhon Mein Basaa Mann Hai Mera, Mann Mein Basaa Kaun”, “Meri Aankhen Bani Deewaani” , “Sapnon Mein Mujhko Pyaar Milaa”, and so many more non-film and film songs, that will never fail to tickle the heart and move the listener to feel the emotion behind the words. For more than seven decades, the treasures of his voice have pleased discerning listener’s of many generations. A voice that always kept to classical and semi classical consistency, and then faded away from the mainline singing for films, around the mid 50s. Yet, his popularity has not waned. Limited maybe, the treasure of his singing gems, but his name evokes a pleasant attachment, whenever his songs are played.

The fifth decade of last century (40s) was very significant for Music lovers. It is during this period that along with film music, Non-Film Songs(NFS) also became very popular. Recording of such songs first began in Bengal. In fact many singers started cutting their records for private songs from 1937-38 onwards . The response of the people to such songs was so overwhelming that many new singers started their careers with NFS.

Jagmohan Sursagar was known mostly for his non-filmy songs whether in Bengali or Hindi. After the success of his songs in ‘Meghdoot’ (1945), he collaborated with Faiyyaz Hashmi and Kamal Das Gupta for recording many non-filmy Hindi songs which became very popular. Faiyyaz Hashmi was a full time employee of EMI (HMV) at Calcutta. After bifurcation of British India, Faiyyaz Hashmi was transferred to Dhaka in 1947 and to Lahore a year thereafter to strengthen the office which was affected by the migration of many of its artists to India. With this, the collaboration of these trios virtually came to an end. Thereafter, Jagmohan Sursagar recorded some more Hindi non-film songs with different lyricists such as B C Madhur, Madhuraj, Rajinder Krishan etc. But most of these songs are silent on the name of the composer. It is believed that during this period, Jagmohan himself may have composed the music for most of his non-filmy songs.
