ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————

For TEN year old ASAD, my hearty congratulations and happy B-Day to the Musically Singing Blog.

The lion’s share of the congratulations for this celebration goes to Atul ji, for starting and sustaining this blog, and words cannot describe our gratitude for that. The blog has also brought together many music lovers and I have found some real ‘gems’ of friends in them. Atul ji, thanks again for that too.

I wish to celebrate with the members who like real GOOD Music with this RARE jugalbandi of Talat Mehmood and Mukesh.  It is an NFS Gazals and is one a rare set which are classified as ‘ham-radeef ghazalein‘​; which means a pair of ghazals in which a phrase of couple or more words at the end of each she’er is the same, even in when the ghazals are written by different sha’ayars.

I strongly believe – “Hain Sab Se Madhur Wo Geet Jinhen Hum Dard Ke Sur Mein Gaate Hain“. And so I have included these two ham-radeef ghazals, in this celebration series.  Some members may classify such songs as ‘melancholy‘. (By the way I hate to describe a song by that word. I prefer to call them ‘full of pathos’, instead).  As my personal choice, I enjoy and prefer them to ‘chaalu’ songs.  Recently Arunbhai mentioned on Facebook – “When you are happy, you enjoy the music. But, when you are sad, you understand the lyrics.” Since this is lyrics emphasising presentation, I am justified to present it for an Event Celebration.

Coming back to the ‘ham-radeef‘ ghazals presented today. It is from a really rare album bearing same name from Saregama (or was it ‘HMV’ and then ‘RPG’ as it was called in different periods of time). Great, but less heard music director Murli Manohar Swaroop not only searched out the ‘similar ending words’ ghazals, but also gave melodious and appropriate  tunes to them. The extended play record (called EP, for the knowledge of younger generations) contains four pairs of such ‘ham-radeef’ ghazals.

On this EP, three such pairs are by Talat and Mukesh and one is by Talat and CH Atma. Shri Sadanand Kamath from our group has already presented one Talat-Mukesh ‘ham-radeef‘ pair of ghazals on our musical blog. This is the second one out of those four and ‘Prabhu krupa’ permitting, I shall present them, unless someone beats me in the race.

As you can see, the lyrics have all the she’ers ending with the words “kyun ho“. That is the beauty of ‘Ham-Radeef’ ghazals. Two poets, Ghalib and Daagh Dehlavi, in different time period have written them. Two sweetest voices of OUR music world,  Talat Mehmood and Mukesh have rendered them in different tunes. I call it nothing less than the marvel of the composer Murli Manohar Swaroop.

Meanings and Translation (Provided by Sudhir)
————————————————————

kisi ko de ke dil koi nawah-sanj-e-fughaan kyun ho
na ho jab dil hi seene mein to phir munh mein zubaan kyun ho

nawah = lamentations, poems on tragedy of karbala
sanj- = serious, sad, gloomy, depressed; as in sanjeedah / संजीदा
fughaan = lamentations, cry of distress

Once the heart is given to someone else
Why then lament with regret and distress
For, when the heart is given over, and is not in your bosom
How then there be a tongue in your mouth
[The poet is emphasizing that when the heart is given to someone else, then we have lost the right to complain or be regretful. We gave over our heart by our own sweet will. Then where arises the question to be distressed, or to raise a voice of complain.]

jo dil qaaboo mein ho to koi ruswaa e jahaan kyun ho
khalish kyun ho, tapish kyun ho, qalaq kyun ho, fughaan kyun ho

qaaboo = in control; in possession
ruswaa = infamous, disgraced, having a bad reputation
ruswaa e jahaan = having a bad reputation in the society, amongst ones social circle
khalish = irritation, enmity, antagonism
tapish = heat, burning, agitation
qalaq = rgret, pain
fughaan = lamentations, cry of distress

If heart is safe within our own posession
There is no fear of being disgraced, disreputed within one’s social circle
There will be no irritation, no agitation, no regrets, no cries of distress

wafaa kaisi kahaan ka ishq jab sar phodna thehra
to phir ae sangdil tera hi sang e aastan kyun ho

wafaa = faithfulness, keeping a promise
sangdil = person with a heart of stone
sang = stone
aastan = abode, threshold (in context of an entrance), दर, दरवाज़ा
sang e aastan = stone step at entrance; an abode made of stone

What be that love, and what good being faithful to such love
If love means breaking one’s head against stone
And if love does mean breaking one’s head against stone
Then why, O stone hearted one
Be that stone of your abode, of the entrance where you be
[The poet’s indication is towards the heart of the person, which is itself being compared to stone; for the heart is where one’s living force is; where one lives.]

bahut niklenge roz e hashr tere jaur ke kwaahaan
sitam ka hausalah duniya mein shart e imtihaan kyun ho

roz = day
hashr = final outcome, the final judgement
roz e hashr = the Day of Judgment; qayaamat; End of the World
jaur = tyranny, oppression, evil deeds
khwaahaan = wishes, desires
sitam = tyranny, injustice
hausalah = courage, capacity
shart = condition
imtihaan = trial, test

On the Day of Judgment
All the mis-deeds and offences of injustice
That you desired, will be exposed
Why then your courage for being cruel and merciless
Be a condition for your trials (today)
[The poet lays his faith on the final Day of Judgment, that an evil doers deeds will be exposed and dealt with accordingly, so why the courage and the capacity of an evil doer to torment and persecute others be a matter of examination today.]

qafas mein mujhse roodaad e chaman kehte na darr humdum
giri hai jis pe kal bijli wo mera aashiaan kyun ho

qafas = cage, place of confinement
roodaad = narrative, story
chaman = garden
roodaad e chaman = a story about (my) garden
aashiaan = abode, nest, home

O my beloved
(I am in (your) imprisonment (confinement))
Fear not narrating to me the description of my garden
Even if that be my nest
The nest that was struck by lightning yesterday

unhen go ranjish e beja hai lekin hai to hum se hai
mohabbat gar na ho baaham shikaayat darmiyaan kyun ho

go = although
ranjish = complaint, unpleasantness
beja = unjustified, unfair
baaham= together, alongwith
shikaayat = complaint, grievance
darmiyaan = middle, in between

My beloved has unfair unjustified complaints of me
But then these complaints are to me and no one else
For complaints only come along with love
[The poet is expressing that because love is, therefore complaints are. One does not complain to them with whom there is no relation of love.]

nikaala chaahta hai kaam kya taanon se tu ghalib
tere be-mehr kehne se wo tujh par mehrbaan kyun ho

taanah (taanon) = taunt, sarcasm
be-mehr = heartless, one without compassion

If you think that by being sarcastic
You will be able to obtain any advantage for yourself
Whyfore will you be showered with favors and love
Just be calling someone heartless and without compassion

jigar se kam naheen ae chaarahgar daagh e jigar mujh ko
jo paidaa kee ho mar mar ke wo daulat raa’egaan kyon ho

chaarahgar = healer, curer
daagh = wounds, blisters
raa’egaan = useless, waste

O my healer, my curer
The blisters on my heart
Are as dear to me, as is my heart itself
It is a treasure I have accumulated
With great pain and sacrifices
Why then this treasure may allowed to be wasted in vain

 


Song: Kisi Ko Deke Dil Koi / Jo Dil Kaaboo Mein Ho (NFS) Singers: Talat Mehmood / Mukesh, Lyrics: Ghalib / Daagh Dehlavi, Music: Murli Manohar Swaroop

किसी को दे के दिल कोई नौवा-संज ए फुगां क्यों हो
ना हो जब दिल ही सीने में तो फिर मुंह में ज़ुबान क्यों हो
किसी को दे के दिल कोई

जो दिल क़ाबू में हो तो कोई रुसवा ए जहां क्यों हो
ख़लिश क्यों हो तपिश क्यों हो क़लक़ क्यों हो फुगां क्यों हो
ख़लिश क्यों हो तपिश क्यों हो

वफा कैसी कहाँ का इश्क़ जब सर फोड़ना ठहरा
तो फिर ए संगदिल तेरा ही संग ए आस्तां क्यों हो
किसी को दे के दिल कोई

हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
बहुत निकलेंगे रोज़ ए हश्र तेरे जौर के ख्वाहाँ
हाँ॰॰आँ
बहुत निकलेंगे रोज़ ए हश्र तेरे जौर के ख्वाहाँ
सितम का हौसला दुनिया में शर्त ए इम्तिहान क्यों हो
ख़लिश क्यों हो तपिश क्यों हो

क़फ़स में॰॰एं॰॰एं
हाँ
क़फ़स में मुझसे रूदाद ए चमन कहते ना डर हमदम
गिरी है जिस पे कल बिजली वो मेरा आशियाँ क्यों हो
किसी को दे के दिल कोई

उन्हें गो रंजिश ए बेजा है लेकिन है तो हमसे है
उन्हें गो रंजिश ए बेजा है लेकिन है तो हमसे है
मोहब्बत गर ना हो बाहम शिकायत दरमियाँ क्यों हो
ख़लिश क्यों हो तपिश क्यों हो

हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
निकाला चाहता है काम क्या तानों से तू ग़ालिब
हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
तेरे बे-महर कहने से वो तुझ पर महरबान क्यों हो
किसी को दे के दिल कोई

॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
जिगर से कम नहीं हैं चारगर दाग़ ए जिगर मुझको
जिगर से कम नहीं हैं चारगर दाग़ ए जिगर मुझको
जो पैदा की है मर मर के वो दौलत रा’एगां क्यों हो
जो पैदा की है मर मर के वो दौलत रा’एगां क्यों हो
ख़लिश क्यों हो तपिश क्यों हो

Talat Mahmood (24 February 1924 – 9 May 1998) was a popular Indian playback singer and film actor. A recipient of the Padma Bhushan in 1992, he had a unique style of singing. He was famous for singing ghazals.

So today (1 january 2015) heralds the arrival of a new year viz 2015. Many people try to go to a new year heralding get together parties but I did not share their enthusiasm and decided to keep indoors, considering the weather conditions. I feel that the weather conditions this time are colder and bleaker than they were the previous year and I feel that the advisable thing to do under the circumstances is to bid one’s time and hope that this kind of weather will go away in a few weeks.

Chaandni raaten – Song no. 12
————————————–

chaand ek bewaa ki choodi ki tarah toota huaa
har sitaara besahaaraa soch mein dooba huaa
gham ke baadal ek janaaze ki tarah thehre huye
hichkiyon ke saaz par kehtaa hai dil rotaa huaa

Thus began a classic Talat Mahmood song ‘koyi nahin mera iss duniya mein’ from the movie ‘Daag’.

In 1980, I was in Delhi, fresh out of college, working for a firm that manufactured car parts. I stayed with my Aunt in Delhi, the rest of my family being elsewhere. My cousins were BIG music afficionados. They could sing beautifully and had an excellent taste in music.

I already loved the film music of 50s and 60s, so I was also well grounded in my musical tastes. My cousins helped me break out of my Lata/Asha/Rafi/Kishore mould and develop a taste for singers like Talat, Manna Dey, Begam Akhtar, Kumar Gandharva, Bhimsen Joshi and of course, Jagmohan.

How do you feel when a family member achieves something spectacular? Atul is my family, not only as a fellow blogger, but also because both of us started our professional career at the same Institute. This was a small, beautiful, self-contained place, tucked away in a town back of beyond, at the foothills of a hill (which was literally called पहाड़ी). This Institute was a British creation in 1927, with exceptional facilities thrown in: indoor swimming pool, indoor badminton court, squash court, tennis courts, football field, table tennis, billiards table, lounge, dark room for photography (the world was not digital then), and a huge golf course just outside the complex. Four years of our most exciting young days in this ambience, the life-style, and the traditions created a strong life-long bond with the Institute, and among the alumni. As I entered a few years earlier, I am especially delighted by the awesome achievement of my younger brother, The Incomparable Atul. As he completes the magical number of 10,000 posts I convey my heartiest congratulations to him and all the regular contributors who have made it possible.

OK, so it is 9500 today. Goodness, the Doppler effect that I discussed, oh just three short weeks ago, seems to be working just as told. The actual pace of posting songs is fairly normal and consistent. And yet, it seems we are speeding up, and will be reaching the magic number, faster than we thought we would get there.

This is the seventh song in my series ‘Songs from Album Varsha Ritu’. Amongst the male popular singers during that musical period, classical and semi-classical songs were the forte of Manna Dey and Mohammad Rafi. Mukesh and Talat sang very few songs in that category. This Talat non-film song in Miyaa-Malhar is penned and tuned by the HMV staffer Murli Manohar Swaroop. Lots is written about Talat Mahmood in other postings of his songs on this Blog. Not to repeat much, a brief report from Wikipedia should be more than enough.

Most of us are aware that a ghazal is a series of couplets (she’rs), each one being independent of others. In fact each she’r is a poem by itself. So theoretically, she’rs written by different poets (shaayars) can be woven to make it a ghazal. This is easier said than done as there are other parameters to make it a traditional ghazal. Normally, there are five essential aspects of a traditional ghazal. They are

Recently, I came across a non-filmy song on the internet, sung by Talat Mehmood which happened to be his first disc cut in 1941 for HMV. The mukhda of the song was

sab din ek samaan nahin thha
ban jaaunga kyaa se kyaa main
iskaa to kuchh dhyaan nahin thha
