zamaanaa bade shauq se sun raha tha
hameen so gaye daastaan kehte kehte
hameen so gaye

Today is the remembrance day of legendary singer Mukesh. (23 July 1922 to 27 August 1976).

“Each word from his lips was a pearl. No one could sing the way Mukesh did, with the right diction, inflexion and intonation. His vocal timbre was out of this world.”

These are the words of composer Salil Choudhary in praise of the voice of Mukesh.

There are many die-hard fans of Mukesh and his tribe swears by him. To hear his voice, is to understand the world around us in its purest form. For his voice represents truth, purity, honesty and it was sung straight from the deepest portions of his heart. A soothing voice to the disheartened, God’s own voice in his bhajans, optimism in his patriotic songs, true love in romantic numbers, and moreover the voice of the greatest showman our country has ever seen, the voice of Mukesh will remain an inseparable chapter in the annals of HFM.

Jaane Kahaan Gaye Wo Din” (‘Mera Naam Joker’, 1970) was sung as if a lifeless body was screeching for the injustices it had been subjected to. The more one hears this song in solitary confinements, the more one wonders how a playback singer could emulate the character with such authentic despondency.

Dost Dost Na Raha” (‘Sangam’, 1964) portrays the entire film in 3 minutes. It’s the voice which gives potency to the emotional expressions of all the three characters involved.

Listen to “Ramaiyya Vastavaiya” (‘Shri 420’, 1955) and “Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya” (‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’, 1966). The voice that appears late in the songs, makes one to sit up and take notice.

Kisi Ki Muskuraahaton Pe Ho Nisar” (‘Anaari’, 1959) , “Haal e Dil Hamara” (‘Shriman Satyawadi’, 1960),  and “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten Kal Ki Baat Puraani” (‘Hum Hindustani’, 1960) etc. brim with confidence and instil optimism in the minds of the listeners.

Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye” (‘Anand’, 1970) explains the loneliness of the actor, even though the whole film is about his lively nature and knowing very well that it’s the dusk of his life.

It would not be an exaggeration to say for the film ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ (1976), the title song sung by Mukesh is what continues to remain in public memory after all these years.

OP Nayyar, who used Mukesh sparingly, just for less than half a dozen songs, reluctantly gave his only solo to the singer in ‘Sambandh’ (1969) for a background song during the rolling of titles. Today, what remains of the film is the song “Chal Akela, Chal Akela, Chal Akela”.

The list of such impeccable playback sounds rendered to the character’s portrayal on the screen is quite long and almost seems to be endless. Each song, a perfect gem, sung with utmost sincerity and humility.

Today, I bring to the music lovers, a NFS, again the voice articulating melancholy, the virtue for which Mukesh will remain unforgettable.

———————————————-

aabaad raho mere dil ko jalaane waale
tum shaad raho meri hasti mitaane waale

May you be and remain well settled
O the one who has burnt my heart to cinders
May you be ever cheerful and happy
O the one who has erased my very being and existence
[Notes: shaad = happy, cheerful;
hasti = being, existence]

aana kabhi turbat pe do aansoo bahaane ko
teere e nazar se khoon ke dariya bahaane waale

Pray that you may visit my grave sometime, some day
And shed just a drop of tear (for me)
O the one who has shed rivers of blood
With the arrows of glances
[Notes: turbat = grave, earth]

shama bhi jala dena mere mazaar pe tum
har dam hi aashiqon ke dil ko jalaane waale

May you light a lamp
When you come visiting my burial crypt
O the one who has always lit the fires
To burn the hearts of the admirers
[Notes: shamma = lamp, light
mazaar = tomb, masoleum
aashiq = lover, admirer]


Song – Aabaad Raho. . . Mere Dil Ko Jalaane Waale  (Mukesh – NFS) (1950) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – V Balsara

Lyrics

aabaad raho o o o
aabaad raho o o o
mere dil ko jalaane waale ae
dil ko jalaane waale
tum shaad raho o o o
tum shaad raho o o o
meri hasti miṭaane waale
hasti miṭaane waale

aana kabhi turbat pe
do aansoo bahaane ko
o o o o o
aana kabhi turbat pe
do aansoo bahaane ko
o o o o o
teere e nazar se khoon ke
teere e nazar se khoon ke
o dariya bahaane waale ae
dariya bahaane waale

shamma bhi jala dena
mere mazaar pe tum
shama bhi jala dena
mere mazaar pe tum
har dam hi aashiqon ke
har dam hi aashiqon ke
o dil ko jalaane waale ae
dil ko jalaane waale
aabaad raho o o oo
aabaad raho oo
mere dil ko jalaane waale
dil ko jalaane waale

आबाद रहो ओ ओ
आबाद रहो ओ ओ
मेरे दिल को जलाने वाले

आना कभी तुरबत पे

ओ ओ ओ ओ
आना कभी तुरबत पे
दो आँसू बहाने को
ओ ओ ओ ओ
तीर ए नज़र से खूं के
तीर ए नज़र से खूं के
ओ दरिया बहाने वाले
दरिया बहाने वाले

शम्मा भी जला देना
मेरे मज़ार पे तुम
शम्मा भी जला देना
मेरे मज़ार पे तुम
हर दम ही आशिकों के
हर दम ही आशिकों के
ओ दिल को जलाने वाले
दिल को जलाने वाले

आबाद रहो ओ ओ
आबाद रहो ओ
मेरे दिल को जलाने वाले
दिल को जलाने वाले

Welcome to all readers to the 126th century on the blog. Yes, we now have 12,600 songs on board with this post.

It’s now customary to have a special post or a song on such occasions. The last one saw a bundle of century celebrations in a single post. This time however it will be different in the sense that the highlight will be on the song itself and its historic importance rather than other aspects.

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 – 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.

Troika of the latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore – 1. Mukesh
——————————————————————————-

Sometime in the middle of April 2015, I had sent two write-ups to Atul ji and coincidentally, both these write-ups were on the songs sung by Mukesh. Atul ji sent me a reply saying that for the time being, he was avoiding posting songs of Mukesh as also of Rafi who are on their way to hitting centuries of their songs in the Blog. So he reckoned that my write ups on Mukesh’s songs may have to be held back for a few days. It was apparent that articles for the special events had already been planned.

A click on ‘Some stats’ page of the Blog revealed that while Mukesh was close to attaining his 700th song, Mohammed Rafi was only one short of his 2400th song in the Blog. A further glance on this page revealed that Kishore Kumar too was also very close to hitting his 900th song. So it was rare ‘celestial’ event like that of conjunction of planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars in the triangle shape which is expected on October 28, 2015. And all the three playback singers are nothing less than celestial stars along with Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. There was an inner urge in me to pay tributes to the troika of playback singers on this unique conjunction of century songs. A thought tickled in my mind. What if I was to select special songs for the troika of playback singers on the occasion?

Considerable effort of musicians and music arrangers, besides the sound recordist, goes into the creation of any song that finally result in the song ending up becoming hummable for public at large. Some of the great musicians and arrangers who worked ‘behind the curtain’ in creating these songs were Antony Gonsalves, Antanio Vaz (Chic Chocolate), Sebastian D’souza, Frank Fernand, Enoch Daniels, Van Shipley, Manohari Singh, Kersi Lord, Maruti Rao Keer among many others.

Legendary singer Mukesh was born in Delhi, on July 22, 1923 in a middle class family consisting of 10 children. Mukesh was the sixth of the siblings. The lure of films always appealed to Mukesh and as such he was less interested in studies. After his matriculation in a municipal school he was able to get a job of assistant surveyor in Delhi’s department of public works through his father. However, after just seven months of service, Mukesh ran away to Mumbai to become another KL Saigal whose adherent fan he had been all along. Even in school, Mukesh was known as “junior saigal” and the lunch breaks often involved the young Mukesh rendering his favourite Saigal numbers to his peers amongst whom Roshan Lal would be one on the harmonium.

There were a number of Urdu poets during the golden era of Hindi film music that also ran in the contest of attaining the prime slots as lyricists in Hindi films. By early 60s, most of them had either disappeared from the scene or they were marginalised. A few of them had migrated to Pakistan to try their luck there. The names of some of such lyricists who come to my mind are Nakshab, Anjum Philibiti, Zia Sarhadi, Behzad Lucknowi, Aziz Kashmiri, Shewan Rizvi, Noor Lucknowi, Khumar Barabankvi etc. Some of them were also script/screenplay writers at one time or the other.
