एक गाना सुना होगा – “बड़ा ही CID है वो नीली छतरी वाला, हर ताले की चाबी रखता हर चाबी का ताला”॰ अपने blog पर भी है॰ लगता है अब इस गाने को थोड़ा बदलना पड़ेगा, ऐसे – “बड़े ही CID हैं, ये अतुल गैंग के मेम्बर्स, गाना guess करने में हैं अव्वल नंबर”॰ काश, लेकिन नहीं, अभी ये गाना blog पर नहीं है॰  🙂

(You must have heard the song – “Badaa Hi CID Hai Wo Neeli Chhatri Waala”.  It is on our blog.  Seems as if this song needs to be modified.  Like This – “Bade Hi CID Hain, Ye Atul Gang Ke Members, Gaana Guess Karne Mein Hain Awwal Number”.  Sorry, this one is not yet on the blog).

So today (25 september 2013) is the 53rd birthday of Master Satyajeet (DOB 25 september 1960) who played the role of a young Dev Anand in “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. He grew up and did a few movies as main lead mainly in Rajshri Films— Paheli (1977), Gopal Krishna (1979) etc and then probably he realized that he was getting nowhere as far as leading roles were concerned.

Trying to think of all other songs on the Hindi screen that contain the names of the educational degrees and qualifications. How far back do you think this trend goes ? Well, all the way back to 1936, to the time of Saigal Saab. The film ‘Krorepati (The Millionaire)’ has a duet by Saigal Saab and Pahadi Sanyal –‘Jo Naukri Dilaa De, BA Dilaane Waale’ . Then the next one that I can locate is ‘Hum Se Nain Milaanaa BA Pass Kar Ke’ , a Madan Mohan / Raja Mehndi Ali Khan creation sung by Mukesh and Shamshad Begum in 1950. Then in 1954, the Kishore, Usha Kiran film ‘Adhikaar’ has a song ‘BA MA PhD’ created by Prem Dhawan and Avinash Vyas, and sung by Asha Bhosle. Then fast forward to 1971 and the path-breaking film by Gulzar, ‘Mere Apne’. And the song – ‘Haal Chaal Thheek Thhaak Hai’. The second line of the mukhdaa of this song goes like ‘BA Kiyaa Hai, MA Kiyaa; Lagtaa Hai Wo Bhi Aiwen Kiyaa Hai’.

“Ham Se Badhkar Kaun” (1981) was a run of the mill kind of a movie that are produced every year and which are then soon forgotten after a few weeks.

As far as I was concerned, I actually forgot all about this movie soon after I watched it.

In my teen and pre teen days, I was a cricket enthusiast. In addition to doing the usual thing line playing it and listening to its radio commentary, I was also into maintaining cricket records. Personal computers were obviously not invented them, and I kept my records manually on registers. I had several thick registers with me, and the scores of all test matches played til them was available with me, and I had collected all these records by painstakingly culling records from many publications. When a new test match began (that was the only form of international cricket back then), I already knew what record was likely to get made in that match. Those were the days when centuries, especially centuries by Indian cricketers were rare. Also, hitting sixes was a rare phenomenon. One Indian player called Salim Durrani had hit a six sometime in 1972 and based on that one six, he was touted in Indian magazines as Mr Sixer.

These days, I no longer maintain cricket records. We already have such records being maintained by professional cricket sites. But I find that these days I am maintaining similar records for Hindi movie songs that I am discussing. And the suggestion for maintaining these song statistics came from Raja, who also grew up with similar passion for cricket and Hindi movies in a neighbouring state in the eastern parts of the country those days.
