Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 34
—————————————————————————

The rate of posting of songs in the blog ten years ago was quite similar to the present day rate of posting, even though things were obviously much different in 2010 than what they are now. This day ten years ago (6 june 2010) was a Sunday, when the final of French open tennis tournament was played and Rafael Nadal won his fifth French open title defeating Robin Söderling of Sweden in straight sets. Now a days, no sporting events are taking place.

I find it interesting to note that the world was suffering from the pandemic of Swine Flu between January 2009 till August 2010. But India was not affected as badly as we are today affected with Corona Virus. There was no lockdown of any kind those days, though night running of trains was suspended in Naxalite affected Orissa-Jharkhand-West Bengal region (SE Rly) those days after Maoist insurgents caused derailment of Jnaneshwari express on 28 may 2010. 148 passengers had died in this ghastly accident near Jhargram.

Three songs were posted in the blog on 06.06.2010:-

Deewaane aa zaraa nazrein milaa Badaa Aadmi-1961 All songs covered on the blog

Aaja mere meet re sun ke mere geet re Jahaan Sati Wahaan Bhagwaan- 1965 02 of 05 songs covered

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This movie had two lyricists, viz B D Mishra and Madhukar Rajasthani but the lyricist of this song is not known. Music is composed by music director trio Lala Asar Sattar.

The song is picturised as a Lord Shiv Stuti dance song on Anita Guha and others. Among others, Meenaxi and Shirley can also be seen.

Catalyst behind this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” song was Avinash Scrapwala. He got Prakashchandra’s lyrics and also provided the Devnagri script lyrics of the song, while Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra. This happens to be his 1100th lyrics contribution in the blog. Quite an achievement by Prakashchandra. Our congratulations to this silent and prolific “Kasturi Mrig” contributor to the blog.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 21
———————————————–

Ashapurna Devi (1909-1995) was a Bengali novelist who wrote more than 200 novels, over 2000 short stories and over 50 children’s books during her life time. It is to her credit that she could contribute so much to the Bengali literature despite being born in a very conservative Bengali joint family in which female members of the household were not allowed to attend school. For male members, private teachers were appointed who will teach them in their home. It is during this time, Ashapurna Devi learnt Bengali alphabets albeit clandestinely when her brothers were being taught in the house. She won many coveted literary awards including Jnanpith Award for her novel Prothom Protishruti (The First Promise) in 1976.

Many films have been made based on the novels and stories written by Ashapurna Devi. Some of them are ‘Agni Pariksha’ (Bangla, 1954), ‘Padikkathai Methai’ ( Tamil, 1960), ‘Chhaaya Surya’ (Bangla, 1963), ‘Mavana Magalu’ (Kannada, 1965), ‘Chhoti Si Mulaaqat’ (Hindi, 1967), ‘Baluchari’ (Bangla, 1968), ‘Prothom Protishruti’ (Bangla, 1971) ‘Anindita’ (Bangla, 1972), ‘Chaitali’ (Bangla, 1971 and Hindi, 1975), ‘Tapasya’ (Hindi, 1976), and ‘Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi’ (2008). The list is not exhaustive.

‘Chaitali’ (1971, Bangla film) was one of the films based on a story of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. The film was directed by Sudhir Mukherjee. The main cast included Biswajeet, Tanjua, Basanta Chowdhury, Jahar Ray, Tarun Kumar, Biren Chatterjee, Manmohan etc.

Although a few of Ashapurna Devi’s novels and short stories have been translated in English and published, I could not locate the story of Chaitali on-line. Probably, this story may be a part of the collections of her stories in Bangla only which I cannot read. The film is available on a video sharing platform in three parts without English sub-titles. So, my understanding of the story of the film is based the visuals and some Hindi dialogues given to the characters of Lajjo (Tanuja), Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) and Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) in it.

The film starts with Amitabh, (Biswajit), an engineer travelling from his home town on transfer to his new place of work to oversee the construction of new road (The outdoor shooting of the place with hills and the snow-capped mountains appears to be somewhere between Siliguri and Darjeeling). He is taken to the site office and thereafter to his quarters with a caretaker attached to it. On the very first day, Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) who is not only one of the contractors for the road work but also a notorious local bully, visits the quarter to meet Amitabh. He refuses to meet him by saying that he would prefer official meetings in the site office only. This create the first friction between Kumar Sahab and Amitabh.

Lajjo (Tanuja), an orphaned girl from Hindi heartland stays with her tyrannical aunt in the neighborhoods of Amitabh’s quarters. Because, she has no one else to share her feelings, she finds solace in spending time in the house of an old man, Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) who is her neighbour. Nawab Sahab is an admirer of Gurudev Rabindra Tagore’s works. He has taken the task of translating some of Tagore’s works in Urdu and Persians. He is also into music.

Lajjo is a milkmaid who supplies milk to Amitabh’s quarters in the morning. There is always some friction between Lajjo and the caretaker over the late supplies of milk or the quality of milk. But Amitabh always take a sympathetic disposition towards Lajjo whenever his caretaker complains against her. Sometime, Lajjo also does household works in the quarters. Over a period of time, Amitabh develops soft corner for her. He starts teaching her Bangla alphabets and conversation in Bangla which she picks up fast. This is not liked by Nawab Sahab and he gives subtle hint to Amitabh. So, now on, he keeps a distance with Lajjo.

Simultaneously, Amitabh has problems with the quality of road work done by Kumar. So, he postpones the payments of his bills for work done until he personally inspects the road. He also orders his staff to bring out old files pertaining to Kumar’s work. This creates panic for Kumar. He engages his henchmen to intercept Amitabh while on an inspection trip in the forest. However, due to heavy rains and landslides, he is not able to visit the place. In the quarters, the caretaker is worried as he thinks that Amitabh is caught in the landslides. After hearing this news, Laajo who has also kept a distance from Amitabh due to Nawab Sahab insistence, runs to search for him. She finds Amitabh safe in a tent. The meeting ignites their love for each other. They return home after the rains have subsided.

Having failed in an attempt to immobilise Amitabh and also to make his old files missing, Kumar plans a conspiracy in which he pays money to Lajjo’s aunt to facilitate her kidnapping. While going to fetch waters from the river, Lajjo gets kidnapped by his henchmen and blames Amitabh for it since both have been last seen together while returning from his inspection duty and both are missing since then. The fact is that Amitabh has gone to his hometown to meet his brother.

When Amitabh returns from home town, police arrests him on charge of kidnapping Lajjo. He is taken to the police station. However, before he is being questioned, Lajjo’s aunt under pressure from Nawab Sahab confesses her role in Lajjo’s kidnapping. She is arrested. Lajjo runs away from the kidnappers and reaches the police station to tell her side of the story. Amitabh is released and Lajjo comes back and visit Nawab Sahab’s house only to find that Kumar and his henchmen have cornered Nawab Sahab. In the scuffle between him and Kumar, Nawab Sahab gets seriously injured from the bullet fired by Kumar. Before, he could recapture Lajjo, police forces get hold of him and he is arrested. Nawab Sahab dies and Lajjo becomes once again an orphan with her aunt in the jail and Nawab Sahab dead. The film ends with Amitabh and Lajjo meeting at the burial ground who would now take care of her.

Many internet sites refer the Hindi version, ‘Chaitali’ (1975) produced under the banner of Bimal Roy Productions, as a remake of the Bangla version of the film. But it is not so. There are subtle differences between the two versions of the film. In Bangla version, the character of the hero is that of an Engineer who is posted on the site office to oversee the road construction work. In the Hindi version, the hero is a professor in the college and stays in a joint family. Secondly, the character of Lajjo (Chaitali) in Bangla version is different than in Hindi version in which she has been shown as a kleptomaniac and she get reformed after working with a loving joint family.

Rinki Bhattacharya, the daughter of Bimal Roy in a very recent interview (February 2020) has revealed that her father had planned the film with a title ‘Sahara’ based on Ashapurna Devi’s short story ‘Chaitali’ and some shots were filmed in early 1966 with Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore. But he fell ill on the set from which he never recovered. After a gap of 8 years, the film was started afresh under the direction of Hrishikesh Mukherjee with the ‘Chaitali’ as the title of the film replacing Sharmila Tagore with Saira Banu. The film did not fare well on the box office.

In keeping with the Hindi speaking role of Chaitali, the Bangla version of the film had 3 Hindi songs out of 8 songs. I am presenting one of the two Lata solos, ‘paayal baaj gayi aaj meri laaj gayi’ which is written by Anand Bakshi. All the songs (Hindi and Bangla) in the film were set to music by S D Burman. The tune of the song appears to be based on a Nepali folk song to me.

It is interesting to note that after ‘Samar’ (1950, Bangla film), S D Burman had not composed songs in any Bangla films until ‘Chaitali’ (1971) and this film became his last Bangla film as well.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 6
——————————————————————————

“Arpan”(1983) was produced and directed by J Om Prakash for Filmyug Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Reena Roy, Parveen Babi, Raj Babbar, Preeti Sapru, Shashi Puri, Sujit Kumar, Sulochana Latkar, Dina Pathak supported by Sudhir Dalvi, Ranveer Raj, Tom Alter, Vikas Anand, Sunder Taneja, Harjeet, Feroz, Vishwanath Shetty, Shafiq Pathan, R.R. Somaiya etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

The movie made its debut in the blog on 21 january 2010 with the song Pardes jaake pardesiyaa bhool na jaana piyaa . The second song was discussed one week later on 28 january 2010 and it was Likhne waale ne likh daale .

For the next ten years, no other songs from this movie were covered. Then there was sudden activity exactyly ten years later and the third song from the movie was discussed on 21 january 2020, exactly one decade after this movie had debuted in the blog. This song was Mohabbat ab tijaarat ban gayi hai Avinash Scrapwala, who is very enthusiastic about the “blog ten year challenge”.

Seeing that the second song from the movie was covered on 28 january 2010, today presents us with another “blog ten year challenge” opportunity as far as this movie is concerened. So here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised as a stage dance song on Parveen Babi and others. Jeetendra is seen among the audience.

I find this song so reminiscent of “Asha”(1980) songs where too Jeetendra would be seen witnessing the stage dance performances. That movie had Reena Roy instead of Parveen Babi. This resemblence is not coincidence. Both these movies were by J OmPrakash. His stories used to be similar. Jeetendra used to be a fixture in his movies. and the titles of his movies would start from the letter A. He produced 23 movies in his career, styaring from “Aas Ka Panchhi”(1961) till “Afsaana Dilwaalon Ka” (2001). 22 of his titles started with A. Only exception being “Bhagwan Dada” (1986), after which he reverted back to his lucky letter A.

Music of his movies during that succeesful spell (Apnapan, Asha, Arpan) used to be by Laxmikant Pyarelal. That is the reason why the songs of these movies sound similar to me.

Here is this nice song from “Arpan”(1983). Incidentally, all the four songs that have been covered so far were quite popular and they have remained so till now.


Song-Tauba kaise hain naadaan ghunghroo paayal ke (Arpan)(1983) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus
Lata + Chorus

Lyrics

taubaa taubaa aa aa

dede ke main haari saari raam raheem ki kasmen
aisaa lagataa hai ye nigode nahin kisi ke bas mein
hindu hai na musalmaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke

chhup ke gali se kaise guzroon

kabhi kabhi main sochoon inko phenkoon abhi utaaroon

bharte hain logon ke kaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke

jab chham se ye baj uthhte hain

meethhaa meethhaa dard nigodaa mere man se nikle
inhen nikaaloon pairon se to jaan badan se nikle
mere dil ke hain armaan ghunghruu paayal ke
ho mere dil ke hain armaan ghunghruu paayal ke

taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke
ho taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke

Jaane Jaana Yoon Na Dekho Aaj Nafrat Se Mujhe” – this lovely lilting from the 1963 film ‘Faulaad’, is the creation of the songwriter Anjaan. A poet who has given us some of the most wonderful gems of the Hindi screen. Songs like “Pipraa Ke Patwaa Sarikhe Doley Manwaa” (‘Godaan’, 1963), “Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil, Mera Mehboob Aata Hai”(‘Namaste ji’, 1965), “Aap Ke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Nayaa Noor Hai”(‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, 1966),  “Aaj Tumse Door Ho Kar, Aise Royaa Mera Pyaar”(‘Ek Raat’, 1967), and “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriyaa Kaise Chamke”(‘Bandhan’, 1969) – and on to “Rotey Huye Aate Hain Sab, Hansta Hua Jo Jaayegaa. . .”(‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’, 1978), “Maano To Main Ganga Maa Hoon, Naa Maano Te Behtaa Paani”(‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’, 1978), “O Khaike Paan Barnaaras Waala” (‘Don’, 1978), “Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi” (‘Namak Halaal’, 1982), “Gori Hain Kalaayi’aan, Tu La De Mujhe Hari Hari Choodiyaan” (‘Aaj Ka Arjun’, 1990). And many more.

Remembering Anjaan on the 22nd anniversary of his passing away, earlier this week (3rd September).

Today, I present another wonderful song penned by him – a song that has been forgotten and has remained obscure for decades. The film is equally obscure – ‘Lady of the Lake’ from 1960. The film is produced and directed by AM Khan, under his own banner of AM Khan Productions, Bombay. It is a fantasy cum stunt film. The list of actors includes Azad, Krishna Kumari, Shaam Kumar, Sherry, Jai, Neelima, Shahgul, Ram, Fani Tinchar, Jilani, Jameela, Baby Leela, OK, Avtar, Maqbool, Robert, and Burhan etc.

The film has nine songs shared between three songwriters. Five songs are written by Anjaan, one by Saba Afghani and the remaining three by Munshi Naayab. Two songs of this film are already represented on our blog.  Today’s song is also from the pen of Anjaan. Music for all the songs is composed by the music director duo of Suresh-Talwar.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

This song is a duet in the voices of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. Here is duet combination of two well known singers, who came together very rarely during their careers. There may probably be fifteen or maybe less, songs that they have sung together.

A wonderful lilting melody that should have been heard more often. I am sure you would agree.

 


Song – Sun Re O Chhalia, Boley Kya Paayaliya (Lady Of The Lake) (1960) Singers – Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o tere bina ratiya
o re mann basiya
soona laage sansaar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

kab se baithi raah mein teri
baalam aas lagaaye
ho oo oo balam aas lagaaye
itne din ke baad miley bhi
to tum rahe paraaye
ho oo oo
do dil milne na paaye
behki adaayen
tujh ko bulaayen
dil hai bada beqraar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

jaadu ajab chalaaye gori
tera roop suhaana
ho oo oo tera roop suhana
pehli jhalak mili jab teri
dil ho gaya deewana
haaye ab isey kahaan hai jaana
ruk ja re ruk ja
palkon mein chhup ja
kar le ji bhar pyaar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ तेरे बिना रसिया
ओ रे मन बसिया
सूना लगे संसार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

कब से बैठी राह में तेरी’
बालम आस लगाए
हो ओ ओ बालम आस लगाए
इतने दिन के बाद मिले भी
तो तुम रहे पराये
हो ओ ओ
दो दिल मिलने ना पाये
बहकी अदाएँ
तुझ को बुलाएँ
दिल है बड़ा बेक़रार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

जादू अजब चलाये गोरी
तेरा रूप सुहाना
हो ओ ओ तेरा रूप सुहाना
पहली झलक मिली जब तेरी
दिल हो गया दीवाना
हाय अबे इसे कहाँ है जाना
रुक जा रे रुक जा
पलकों में छुप जा
कर ले जी भर प्यार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

Today’s song is from film Poornima-38.

The film was made by Prakash Pictures- a joint venture of brothers, Shankar and Vijay Bhatt. The film was directed by Balwant Bhatt- not related to them but elder brother of another director Nanabhai Bhatt. In those days Marathi and Gujarati people were found in large numbers in the film industry. The simple reason was that Bombay was in Bombay Presidency and both Bombay(Maharashtra) and Gujarat were its part. Secondly, two two major requirements of films, namely Finance and Actors were available in abundance here. Gujarati people controlled the finance and Marathi people looked after the acting side.

However, for acting and for other branches of film making people from all over India flocked to Bombay, but money investment was done by the locals. If you see the cast of any film made in the early era, you would find names of Muslim girls in abundance. For example, just see the cast of today’s film only. It consists of Sardar Akhtar ( Sardar is a proper name and not a title), Shirin Bano, putli bai,Noorjehan, Tarabai, Nirasha etc. There was a reason for this too.

As the Talkie films started, the number of Anglo Indian Girls rapidly went down as most of them did not know Hindi nor could they sing.Only a few hard working Anglo Indian girls survived and progressed from silent to Talkie films,like Savita Devi (Iris Gasper)-who learnt Hindi/Urdu and singing,with efforts, Sulochana (Ruby Myers),Indira Devi(Effie Hippolet),Lalita Devi(Bonnie Bird),Pramila(Esher Abrahams),Seeta Devi(Renee Smith),Madhuri(Beryl Classen),Manorama(Winnie Stewart) etc. Since singing was an important requisite,the field was now open to singing girls from Kothas,Tawayafs and professional singers.Reasonably good looks and singing ability was what made them actresses. These girls,who came from Kothas and professional singer families used the suffix ” Bai” to their names to differentiate their specialty. Thus you had Jaddan bai,Amir bai,Johrabai,Rattan bai etc etc.

Many young singing girls found Cinema as a place where they could get (catch ? ) a good Husband from a better family background,earning respectability(forget religion). Many starlets married Producers,directors,Actors,Singers and Composers,left acting and settled as respectable Housewife. Some girls got Husbands from Nawabs and the Royalties,as they were patrons of Arts. Many examples from early era can be cited in this connection like Gulab bai alias kamla devi married S.Fatelal-Dir. in Prabhat Films.

Jaddanbai married a Medical student and a Jahagirdar-Uttamchand. Fatima bai(mother of Alam Ara fame Zubeida) married nawab of Sachin,Guajarat
Sultana married Yusuf laljee,Businessman and chief od Bombay Municiple corpn. Actress Sarojini(Roshan) married Nanubhai Vakil-producer/Dir (Their daughter was actress AZRA)

Actress Indurani (Ishrat)-sister of Sarojini- married Ramniklal Shah-Prod/Director
Actress Shirin bai married Nanabhai Bhatt (Their sons are Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt)
Actress Zubeida of Alam Ara married Raja Dhanrajgir of Hyderabad-deccan.
The other actress Zubeida (on whose life, film Zubeida was made) married Maharaja Hanwant Singh of Jodhpur etc.

This trend continued in the industry even after things changed and educated and respected family people entered the industry. Now,one could see marriages were taking place between people of film industry itself like Rattanbai and Director Hafiz,Jyoti and Durrani, Nalini Jaywant and Virendra Desai, Noorjahan-Shaukat hussain rizvi, Meenakumari, Sardar Akhtar, Snehprabha Pradhan, Anil Biswas, Lalita Deulkar etc.

In recent era instances were Waheeda Rehman, Kishore kumar, Asha Bhosle, Hemant kumar, Manik verma, Premlata, Geeta Dutt, Rishi kapoor, Rajesh khanna, Amitabh Bachhan and Abhishek Bachhan etc.

In the cast you find a name Shirin Bano. Yes, she too is one of the above listed artistes who joined films to get a suitable husband and lead a respectable and comfortable life. Shirin, Shirin Bai or Shirin Bano was from a Tawayaf mother from Lucknow. Her father was a Tamil Brahmin- Ram Seshadri Aiyar, who worked as an Accountant with Kikubhai Desai ( father of Manmohan Desai) in his Distribution department.They were 5 sisters and 1 brother. Shirin joined films at an early age. Her first film was Maharani-34 same year she worked in Vehmi duniya, Sewa sadan and Bala Joban. In 1935 her films were Shamsher e Arab, Pardesi Sainya and Bambai ki Sethani. In 36, she worked in Top ka gola, Snehlata, Passing show and Azad veer. Khwab ki duniya, His Highness and Challenge from 37, State Express and Purnima in 38, Leather face and Hero No.1 from 1939. Total 18 films only.

Her youngest sister Meher Bano also joined films with the name Purnima ( she also married a Producer Director Bhagwandas Varma). Shirin married Producer Director Nanabhai Bhatt, who already had a wife and 9 children. They had 2 sons- Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt.

The Heroine of this film was Sardar Akhtar. The life story of Sardar Akhtar- Heroine of this film- is very interesting. Sardar Akhtar was a Punjabi Muslim born in Lahore in 1915. Her mother was a famous singer on the infamous Hira Mandi Road of Lahore. Akhtar learned singing from her mother and also other ustads. Her younger sister Bahar Akhtar was beautiful and a good singer. These sisters were famous as Daaro and Baharo in Lahore. Bahar was hired by United Players Corpn. of Lahore , as a Heroine in their film ” Qatil Katar “. Producer A R Kardar was also its Hero. They fell in love. Bahar was under strict surveilance by her mother, but with the help of a friend, Kardar abducted her and they were married. When this news reached her mother, Akhtar and her mother made a Police complaint against kardar. Kardar and his unit members were arrested and kept in a lock up for few days for abducting a Minor girl. They were released when Bahar herself gave a statement in their favour. Kardar destroyed the negatives of his film to prevent Bahar from further acting in films.

After this episode Akhtar started working in dramas. She went to Calcutta and did a small role in film Dhoop Chaaon-35. From there she came to Bombay and joined Saroj Movietone. She did films like Eid ka chaand,Roop Basant and Naqsh e Sulemani and earned a good name. She acted in films of Minerva and Wadia-mostly stunt action films. Mehboob khan gave her a big role in film Aurat-40 and her image changed. She also did Mehboob’s film Roti, during which they got married on 25-4-1942. They did not have any issues but they adopted Saajid khan, child star of film Son of India-62. After Mehboob’s death in 1964 May, Akhtar lived alone, occasionally visiting Sajid khan, who had settled in USA.

Sardar Akhtar did 44 films. Her last film was Raahat-45. However, she did small roles in films Hulchal-71 and Bandhe Haath-74. Sardar Akhtar sang 92 songs in 27 films. Considering that she was not a regular or playback singer, her 92 songs were highly creditable. Not even 50% of her songs came on gramophone records. During one of her US visits, Sardar Akhtar died there on 2-10-1984. She was a devotee of sufi saint Ashraf khan, her co-star of many films including Roti-42.

The film had 15 songs sung by Sardar Akhtar, Shirin Bano, Ranjit and Shankar Rao Vyas himself. He was the film’s Music Director. This was his first film with Prakash Pictures. He went on working with them in many more films.

Prof. Shankarrao Vyas (1898-1956) was born in Kolhapur on 23-1-1898. His father Ganeshpant was a well known Keertankar and Puranik! So, he was brought up in the religious and musical environment. Unfortunately, Ganeshpant died when Shankar was seven years old. His paternal uncle brought him up for few years. His maternal uncle (Mama) noticed his inclination towards music and enrolled him in the ‘gurukul’ of Maharaj (Pandit) Vishnu Digambar Paluskar.

In those days, students had to sign a bond with the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. Training period would last 8-10 years and the student would become all-rounder in every field related to music. Thus, Shankar Rao spent nine years in this gurukul, earned ‘Sangeet Pravin’ degree and gold medal for overall development. With the suggestion of guruji, he worked in Lahore vidyalaya for few years.
In 1931, he moved to Ahmadabad for establishing branch of Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. He was an expert not only in vocal music, but could play and repair many instruments including sitar, jaltarang and mendolin. He would conduct orchestra consisting of Indian and western instruments. He was also a very good composer and wrote several bandishes. He was the key person in planning music section of national (Rashtriya) schools: an idea originated by Gandhiji in Ahmadabad.

In 1935, he left Ahmadabad and settled in Bombay. He founded school for music education at Dadar, just outside the western railway station. ‘Vyas Sangeet Vidyalaya’. It is still functioning at this place. His brother Narayanrao Vyas and brother in law Vasantrao Rajopadhye also joined him in this noble cause. Around 1930/31, HMV Company invited both Vyas brothers for recordings and they cut over 200 songs (100 discs) until about 1938. He also cut few orchestral records under ‘Vyas Brothers’ banner playing pure classical ragas. These records were best sellers and company had printed their photographs on record catalogues.

This period was also the beginning of talkie films. Shankar Rao composed music for Hindi (35), Marathi (5), and Gujrathi (3) films from 1937-1955. His first film as a composer was ‘ His Highness’ -37 and the last was ‘ Baal Ramayan’ -released in 56. He also composed background music for fifteen films. Most of his films were based on religious or mythological themes. He also taught music to non-singing actors such as Sardar Akhtar and Shirin Bano. His most famous musical films were – Narsi Bhagat (1940), Bharat Bhet (1941), Ram Rajya (1943, in Hindi and Marathi). Saraswati Rane sung ‘Beena madhur madhur kachu bol’ in raga Bhimpalas in Hindi film ‘Ram Rajya’ and this song became popular throughout India. This was the only film that Gandhji watched in cinema hall and was much impressed with the music. Songs from Marathi version of ‘Ram Rajya’ viz. ‘Sujanho parisa ramkatha’ and ‘Ladkya raanila lagale dohale’ are shown on TV even today.

He was very busy in many fields as a composer, Principal of his music school, author of articles and bandishes, President of Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and founder editor of ‘Sangeet Kala Vihar’ magazine (founded in 1947) of Vidyalaya that is published even today. He passed away at Ahmadabad on 17-12- 1956. He has sung couple of abhangs of Saint Tukaram. These are available on HMV records. Record P 13454 published in 1931 has a sweet abhang – ‘Roopi guntale lochan, charani sthiravale mana’.

Film Poornima-38 was based on the popular famous novel Purnima-in Gujarati- by writer Ramanlal Vasantlal Desai. Let us now enjoy the first song of this film here. The film makes its debut on the Blog.

Song-Kaun pari neel gagan ki chali aayi re(Prem Ki Ganga)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Prahlad Sharma, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

kaun pari neel gagan ki
chali aayi re
paayaliya jhankaaye
kaun pari neel gagan ki
chali aayi re
paayaliya jhankaaye
dekh jise saanwri ghata lahraayi re
rim jhim ras barsaaye

laung lata si komal kaaya
naina do kajraare
laung lata si komal kaaya
naina do kajraare
honth kamal ki paankhudiyon se
gaal arun rasnaare(?)
khil khil kaliyon si muskaati
man bhawra lalchaaye haaye
kaun pari neel gagan ki
chali aayi re
paayaliya jhankaaye

roothh ke mat ja o mrignayni
yug yug ke hum saathi
roothh ke mat ja o mrignayni
yug yug ke hum saathi
jal na sakega deep akela
ban ja tu meri baati
pyaar karen hum donon aisa
swarg yahin bas jaaye
haaye
kaun pari neel gagan ki
chali aayi re
paayaliya jhankaaye
kaun pari neel gagan ki
chali aayi re
paayaliya jhankaaye
