Blog Day :

4450 Post No. : 15910

Recently,(12th of July’2020 to be precise) the blog saw the 5000th song from the decade 1951-1960 covered on the blog.

This ‘melodious decade’ has around ten thousand songs (as per HFGK) and if we look from that point of view we are just on the ‘half-way mark’ (or little above now as the songs are getting added frequently to this decade, thanks to the collaboration of our team members and also because of projects like Blog Ten Year Challenge.

All songs of this decade may not be available. Only time will tell us what will be the final tally for the songs of 1951-1960.

I noticed that there are a few movies of this decade which are represented in the blog by just one song. I will start from the movie where it began for me during the very first phase of the current ‘pandemic’ or the ‘first lock-down’ period.

It so happened that during the ‘first lock down’ when everything was becoming abnormal gradually and we were getting acquainted with the ‘new routine’, one evening we all family members were preparing for a ‘card game’ before finally retiring for the day. And there was some discussion that ‘kaise din aa gaye hain’ or ‘how the future days are going to be’ and it just knocked the ‘right’ cord in my brain … ‘din raat badalte hain, haalaat badalte hain’, and what more one wants if we have that soothing voice in such situations to calm our mind and give relaxation and the much needed motivation too.

(But today’s discussion is not about Hemant Kumar ji).
So, I played the song on my mobile (that has become new order of the day now since songs are available on YT and easy to play, as the cassette-recorder has taken a safe place in the shelves 🙂 ).

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised that only one song from this movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was posted on the blog. That piqued my interest and I searched for the other songs of this movie. I marked one song, another philosophical song from this movie for my presentation. I had then planned to present this song but could not make it some how as I had then started my job here and working at our place was resumed after first thirty days of the lock-down. Later I planned to present it on the birth anniversary of the lyricist of this song – Rajinder Krishan. But then it got delayed more and maybe it was waiting for the ‘right time’ for me as I experienced ‘how days things were changing for me after coming back from Kenya 🙂 and like the today’s song after ‘din raat badalte hain’ it was ‘ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa’. Very soon I lost the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my life. May be God wanted me to rest and spend ‘quality time with my family (which I missed due to my stay in Kenya) :).

After that we had a ‘relocation of the rented accommodation’ in the same city.

So, a little bit changing of ‘surroundings’ again, and though some ‘minor health issues’ bothering (our Doctor is aware 🙂 ) it’s almost two months now at the new place. And as they say ‘this shall also pass’, yes!!
But one thing is constant for me and continues … ‘blog, music, songs’ …

Thanks to God and our well-wishers all of us are safe and healthy so far …

Today on the ‘thirty-third’ ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.06.1919-23.09.1987) of lyricist Rajinder Krishan, as a tribute to him, we are going to listen to a song penned by him from the same movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’.

‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Shri Krishna Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Darshan. It had Jayshree, Pradeep Kumar, Kumari Nanda, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Sundar, Shammi, Majnu, Sheila Vaaz, Sai Subbulakshmi, Kamala Lakshman and others.

This movie had six songs, and all were written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupta.

Lata Mangeshkar, Hemant Kumar, and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

As mentioned above lyrics are Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Chitragupta.


Song-Ik ik pal mein badle zamaana (Naya Zamaana)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa
aaj nayaa

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa

kal ki naar nadi ke paar ki

pyaar ke badle ab to thhikaane

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

Mukesh and his Composers – 20
—————————————————-

A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
This is a quote famously attributed to English politician and statesman Winston Churchill for his views on Russian engagement during World War II. This analogy may be completely irrelevant to the context of today’s post, but then I could not help remembering the above quote when I became cognizant of the total number of Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for the composer being discussed in today’s post.

Well, we are talking about composer Avinash Vyas and Mukesh’s association with him. To sustain the unusual mystery and the context of the first two paras, I would request readers to guess the total Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for Avinash Vyas.

Meanwhile, to reveal Mukesh’s collaboration with him in Gujarati films and non-film songs, here are the details of the same. As usual, I had requested Shri Harish Raghuwanshi, the compiler of Mukesh Geetkosh to confirm the details of the combo. Further, I had requested him to send me only the total number of songs that Mukesh sang in Gujarati under Avinash Vyas.

However, Shri Harish ji despite his poor eyesight and health issues was kind enough to send me the complete details including confirmation of the total songs sung in Hindi films as well. Instead of keeping such invaluable details confined to my inbox, I thought it prudent to include the details in the present post and following are the two tables with the details self-explanatory.

List of Gujarati Film songs sung by Mukesh under the baton of Avinash Vyas
—————————————————————————

S.No Name of Film (Gujarati) No. of.Songs
1 Bhakta Tulsidas 5
2 Kaadu Makraani 1
3 Kanku Ane Kanya 1
4 Ghar Ni Shobha 1
5 Jamaairaaj 1
6 Bhaada Taaraa Vaheta paani 1
7 Santu Rangili 1
8 Sorathi Sinh 1
Total 08 Films Total 12 Songs


List of Gujarati NFS sung by Mukesh under the baton of Avinash Vyas

——————————————————–

S.No NFS (Gujarati)
1 Aaj Kharu Avtarvaanu
2 Aapan Sahuye
3 Ghadi ghoonghat…. Nazar ne kahi doh
4 Chaalyaaj karoon
5 Jaa re Jhanda jaa
6 Priti nu pushp… aavo toy saarun
7 Pankhida ne aa pinjaru
8 Hey tane jaataa joi

Thus, Mukesh sang 12 filmi and 08 non-filmi Gujarati songs under the baton of Avinash Vyas. That’s obviously a total of 20 songs.

So, what could be the total number of Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for Avinash Vyas who scored music in some 52 movies and composed 390+ known songs.
Thirty? Twenty? Ten?

Well, before we proceed to discuss the surprise number, here are two important links for the details of the work done by Avinash Vyas.

  1. https://atulsongaday.me/2020/08/20/aaja-re-dukhiyaa-dharti-tujhe-pukaare/
  2. https://www.songsofyore.com/forgotten-composers-unforgettable-melodies-8-avinash-vyas/

The first link is a recent post by Atul ji, in which he has painstakingly put together the complete known works of Avinash Vyas in Hindi films and the details of his songs covered on the blog.

The second link is a post by Shri Ashok M Vaishnav ji on Songs of Yore blog wherein the life and works of Avinash Vyas is reflected. Some interesting discussion in the comments section reveal the continued lack of clarity on the total number of films scored and the songs composed by the music director.

Now, coming to the total songs sung by Mukesh under Avinash Vyas, finally, here is the complete list.

 

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Lyricist
1 Tim tima tim Har Har Mahadev (1950) Ramesh Shastri
2 Nitya nirantar boley anta Shiv Shakti (1952) Munshi Saagar Hussain
3 Jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai Mata Mahakali (1968) Bharat Vyas

What?
Three songs only?

Well, however much we may debate and discuss, the fact of the matter is that there are only 3 songs of the combo. The composer was known for composing mainly for religious and mythological films. Contrary to popular belief, Mukesh has sung enough devotional songs in films which, as his other genre songs, have also become quite famous. Then, why such a low figure of only 3 songs is simply surprising.

Mukesh has sung only one song each in 3 of the 52 films scored by Avinash Vyas in Hindi.

So, why hardly 3 songs of the combo? As I have contemplated in my earlier posts on such surprises, there could be no reason whatsoever. More occasions simply did not happen. This could be the most plausible reason that one could come up with. As I finish writing this post, I am still under disbelief that there are only 3 songs of the combo.

Anyway, going through the songs, first two have been covered on the blog. The one from ‘Har Har Mahadev’ is in fact a famous duet with Sulochana Kadam. The second one from ‘Shiv Shakti’ is a solo bhajan.

It can be traced easily on the blog that if Mukesh has sung in any film, then that particular song is most likely the first to be featured or debuted on the blog.

Today’s film ‘Mata Mahakali’ (1968) also makes its debut on the blog with this highly philosophical song. The film was released under the banner of Sharad Productions and directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The cast included Ashish Kumar, Jaishree Gadkar, Nalini Chonker, Shahu Modak etc.

Lastly, Shri Harish ji has also confirmed that there are no NFS in Hindi of the combo. I thank him again for all the help he rendered in completing this post.

Song – Jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai (Mata Mahakali)(1968) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai

ye dekho surya ka jalwa
subeh ko jo nikalta hai
ye dekho surya ka jalwa
subeh ko jo nikalta hai
chamkta hai
damakta hai
magar sandhya ko dhalta hai
ye uthne aur girne ka
sada hi khel chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai

arey insaan akad mat aaj tu apni bulandi par
arey insaan akad mat aaj tu apni bulandi par
na girte der lagti hai
samay ki ek mandi par
vidhaata ne likha jo lekh
taale se na talta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

jo singhasan par baitha tha
kiya karta tha manmaani
jo singhasan pe baitha tha
kiya karta tha manmaani
wo naukar ban ke teli ka
chalaata hai arey ghaani
samay ke saamne har aadmi ka
kuchh na chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

lagan panchhi ki pinjar se
jise ye tod na sakta
lagan panchhi ki pinjar se
jise ye tod na sakta
ye toota hai
ye phoota hai
basera chhod na sakta
samay ki baat keechad se
yahaan pankaj nikalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

अरे इंसान अकड़ मत आज तू अपनी बुलंदी पर
अरे इंसान अकड़ मत आज तू अपनी बुलंदी पर

अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है

लगन पंछी की पिंजर से
जिसे ये तोड़ ना सकता
लगन पंछी की पिंजर से
जिसे ये तोड़ ना सकता
ये टूटा है
ये फूटा है
बसेरा छोड़ ना सकता
समय की बात कीचड़ से
यहाँ पंकज निकलता है

Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Hemant Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi and Pinakin Shah had given their voices to the songs in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.11.1955.

So far, only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Jaago hey jaago jaago hey mahaakaal 14.11.2013

Today 20th August is the thirty-sixth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of music director Avinash Vyas ((21 July 1912 – 20 August 1984). On this occasion here is a song from ‘Jagadguru Shankaracharya-1955’ sung by Hemant Kumar and composed by Avinash Vyas. Lyrics are by Bharat Vyas ji.

After getting associated with this blog I had got many opportunities to listen and share the songs composed by Avinash Vyas ji.

I was not aware of his work or rather his great work to the contribution of Hindi Cinema and Gujarati Cinema and Non-Film music in Gujarati. During the preparation of this post I came across this article by A.M. Vaishnav ji on ‘songs of yore’ here and also there I found comments by our Arun ji giving a brief about Avinash Vyas ji which I am reproducing below;

His full name was AVINASH ANANDRAI VYAS. His wife Sulochana Vyas was a singer and son Gaurang was/is a Music Director.
He was a multifaceted personality. he was a composer, lyricist, playback singer and writer too. In fact, he has written 75 Dance Ballets, in few of which Asha Parekh has also danced. he published 6 books in Gujrati, the last being” Vartul”-1983.
he gave music to 53 Hindi and 175 Gujrati films and 1 Rajasthani film. he got Gujrat Govt awards 10 times. The Sangeet Natak Academy of Gujrat gave him an award. He was given Padmashree in 1970. he made 8 Foreign stage shows. he had acted in a Gujrati film,” Gorakhdhanda”-1949.
His most famous film Har har Mahadev-1950 is also my favourite one.
Though neglected in Hindi, he was honoured suitably in Gujrat, in his life time.

Additional information-
Avinash Vyas collaborated with great songwriters like Qamar Jalalabadi, Madan, Prem Dhawan, Pradeep Patel, Gopal Singh Nepali, Badrinath Vyas, Sadiq Lakhnavi, Devendra, Pt. Sagar, Indeevar, Nilkanth Tiwari, Sagar Husain, Qamar Jalalabadi, Kavi Pradeep, Saraswati Kumar Deepak, Bharat Vyas, B. P. Bhargav, Raja Nene, Ramesh Gupta, Shamim Jaipuri, Indra Chandra, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Pt. Mukhram Sharma, Pt. Madhur and Ramesh Shastri.
Avinash’s compostitions were sung by the melodious voices of great singers like Mohammed Rafi, Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur, Anand Kumar Chitragupta, Badrinath Vyas, Dilraj Kaur, Sulochana Kadam, Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Geeta Dutt, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood, Kishore Kumar, Meena Kapoor, Ameerbai Karnataki, Krishna Kalle, Mahendra Kapoor, Madhubala Zaveri, , Mohan Tara, Lata Mangeshkar, Sudha Malhotra, S. Balbir, Husn Ara, Kavi Pradeep and Usha Mangeshkar.

I am sure Arun ji must have written in details about Avinash Vyas ji on this blog too, but I have to find and read that post.

In my childhood I must have watched many black & white Hindi movies where music was composed by Avinash Vyas, unaware of who the music director was. However, the song ‘tere dwaar khadaa bhagwaan’ from ‘Waaman Avtaar-1955’ is my all-time favorite and I would also like to mention the songs from ‘Chakradhaari-1954’ which I watched during my stay at Nagpur (exactly four years back around this time i.e. 15/16 August’2016) where I liked all the wonderful songs this movie has.

Paying our tributes to the music director Avinash Vyas today, let us now listen to today’s song …

Blog Day :

Hullo atuldom

Many times I find a celebrity’s birthday and then look for a song featuring him/ her. Then, there are times when I see or hear a song and look for the birth-dates or anniversaries of those related with that song. In both the scenarios the post is nearly ready due to readily available songs. There is a third scenario where when I visit the birth-dates/ anniversary page of our blog and I see a birthday of an artiste, whose work I like, coming up, I rush to look for possible songs and find it difficult to zero in on anyone because there are too may options. So to make selection easy, I make things more complicated by trying to find debut songs of the person, adding a condition that the person should be seen lip-syncing and if he/she is dancing in the song or at-least shaking a leg that would be a BONUS.

So today we are celebrating the 70th birthday of an actor who made un-credited appearances in ‘Aman’ (1967) and ‘Aan Baan’ (1972). Shyam Benegal was the one who first cast him as Vishwam in ‘Nishant’ in 1975 and there began his journey in the parallel cinema of the Indian Film industry. His foray into commercial cinema came about when he played one of the Pandavs in ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) which was not a mythological movie but a movie with a social message. From then on, he has straddled cinema of various genres and been successful enough to last till today. He has given memorable performances and has been a recipient of the National Award and Filmfare award for the best actor three times. Additionally he has been awarded the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan.

Initially we saw him as a costar to Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. Then with ‘Katha’ (1982) Deepti Naval became his heroine and his movies could be said to have become commercially viable when we saw him with Rekha in two movies – ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) and ‘Ijaazat’ (1987). I think he did one more movie with Rekha I can’t recollect. Here I am not talking of Rekha movies where this actor played negative characters meaning played a villain (being the right term). Oh yes, this actor has played villain and hero in traditionally masala films. Just goes to show how versatile he is.

I am sure the readers have guessed that I am talking of Naseeruddin Shah. I loved what Sudhirji wrote in his post for the song “Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi (Medley)” last year on the same occasion. I think we should revisit it.

For today let us see him sing and dance with Mithun Chakravarty and Yogita Bali. So “Oye oye. . . Tirchi Topiwaale” was not the first time he tried to dance.  Here he has played Mithun’s friend and Yogeeta’s brother. The song is from the romantic thriller ‘Khwaab’ (1980) which was directed by Shakti Samanta. It had songs written and composed by Ravindra Jain. Today’s song is sung by Jaspal Singh, Suresh Wadkar and Hemlata. The story of the movie is present in the only song of the movie that has been posted in the monsoon of 2015 – “Tu Hi Wo Haseen Hai“.

Happy Birthday to Naseeruddin Shah – stay healthy and may we have more from you.

Song – Ek Aas Liye Vishwaas Liye  (Khwaab) (1980) Singer – Suresh Wadkar, Jaspal Singh, Hemlata, Lyrics – Ravindra Jain, MD – Ravindra Jain
Suresh Wadkar + Jaspal Singh + Hemlata

soti nahin hain woh aankhen
saathi adhure sapne 
meri bhi aankhon mein jhaanken
har sukh se juda dukh hai 
dukh ka apna sukh hai
mere saathi
sab kuch na miley yahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

ahaa ahaa haa lalala laa 
ohohoho oooo

nit bhor ki ye laali 
deti sandesha zindagi ka
jis ne andhere kaate 
hoga savera bhi usi ka
koi meet sahara de to
jeene ka ishaara de to
mere sathi
wahin manzil tu jahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

Today (2 july 2020) is the 66th birth anniversary of Sayeed Mohammed Aziz-un-Nabi, better known as singer Mohammed Aziz (2 July 1954 – 27 November 2018).

I was under the impression that he made his debut as a playback singer in 1970s. I was mistaking him with Anwar, who began his career in 1970s. Mohammad Aziz made his debut as a playback singer in HFM in 1984. He shot to fame with “Main mard taange waala”, the title song of “Mard”(1985). He then sung some other memorable songs. One of them being “Mai se meena se na saaqi se”.

On the occasion of his birth anniversary, here is a song from “Aakhir Kyon”(1985). This song is sung by Md Aziz. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song gets played on a radio / two in one while Rajesh Khanna and Smita Patil, playing an estranged couple, look on.

The lyrics of the song are quite inspirational. The lyrics makes this song a forgotten gem.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day:

4355 Post No. : 15674

Hello everyone,

So after what seems like ages, I’m back here with a post.
You can therefore assume it must be a special occasion.
A special anniversary, of an artiste or celebrity.

And it is.

Today is the birthday of the most important celebrity for this blog.
In fact, without this celebrity, the blog would not even have existed.
Yes, I’m talking about Atul himself.

Wish you a very very happy birthday, Atul.
Many happy returns of the day!

Now Atul might not consider himself a celebrity – but for us, he very much is.
I checked the dictionary definition of “celebrity” and there are two definitions
“a famous person, especially in entertainment or sport”
“the state of being well known”.

Atul satisfies BOTH conditions, in the context of this blog.
Ok, so he might not be a celeb in Bollywood yet, he might not make it to Page 3 or gossip columns (or maybe he does, I don’t know!). But if the dictionary definition is satisfied, I am too. 🙂

I don’t know where to start writing from, but I think a journey down memory lane might not be such a bad place to start. Those of you who have heard this before, kindly bear with me.

It all started in the first half of 2005. Probably around April or so.

In those days I was in Holland, and pretty crazy about cricket.
Not the right sport for that country, or the right country for that sport. 🙂
I got no TV coverage of cricket – and I was desperate to discuss cricket with like-minded cricket fans.

Luckily I had internet – so that was a life-saver in this context.

BBC in those days had a forum called BBC  TMS where one could discuss cricket. It was mostly Indians and Pakistanis, so you can imagine the level of discussion and amount of abuse. 🙂 Much of it was deliberately in Hindi, to avoid catching the eye of the forum moderators.

But after a while, they caught on to what was going on – and eventually the forum was shut down.

I then began hunting for other options.
I came across a Pakistani cricket forum which I joined.

It was there that I came across a person who went by the handle of “squarecut” (I think).

Now most of the discussion on the forum was obviously of modern/current cricket (Tendulkar, Wasim Akram etc) but this handle posted on topics of an earlier era – mostly the 1970s. And mostly talking about Indian cricketers of that era – like Vishwanath.

I could immediately relate to this. This was MY era, and I loved to discuss cricket of that era. So I immediately warmed to this person.

What was most remarkable was that his experiences were very similar to mine.
And his posts were also very interesting.

After a while, I got bored of that forum and continued my search for other options.

I came across a new forum, started by a few Indians in the wake of the BBC TMS shutdown.

I was initially a bit unsure of it, but then I saw a familiar handle.
The same “squarecut”.

So I joined that forum.
And for many years, Atul and I (and many other friends we made on that forum) spent many wonderful moments discussing cricket, and a lot of non-cricketing stuff, on that forum.

Anyway, long story – of How I Met Atul.
(Someone needs to make a Netflix series on this. :-))

Continuing (Season-2 of HIMA), the best thing about the forum was that though it was primarily a cricket forum, we could, and would, discuss anything under the sun.

Politics, movies, music, culture, anything.
And since there were people from around the world, it was quite interesting.

It didn’t take long for me to discover that Atul was keen on Hindi songs too.
Bas, phir kya tha?

We set up a section on the forum to discuss just this.
We called it Geetmala, where each person would pick up a topic (Atul picked up “trains” – anyone surprised?) and post 10 or so songs on it.

One day Atul announced that he had just started a blog.
He has always been someone who likes to experiment with things, so this was a sort of experiment for him too.
For nostalgia sake, I checked just now and found that blog still very much intact – it is on the blogroll of this blog.

One of the posts is http://squarecutsblog.blogspot.com/2008_06_01_archive.html .
Dated 1st June 2008.

Having now got some blogging experience, Atul decided to start a new blog where he would discuss one song a day.

And thus, on the 19th  of July 2008, a first post on this “one song a day” blog appeared.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

I’m sorry for this rather elaborate throwback to another era, but since it is Atul’s birthday today, I couldn’t help reminiscing how we first got to know each other.

And oh, we did manage to meet once too.

When Atul was posted in Nagpur, I made a trip to Nagpur to meet him and a common friend (from the cricket forum). My only trip to Nagpur ever.

It was wonderful meeting Atul, and having dinner with him.
We discussed cricket of the 70s, songs and of course this blog.

There are other memories too.
Atul and his special relationship with Bangladesh cricket, for example. 🙂

No mention of Atul would be complete without talking about Atulisms. 🙂

This is a term I coined to refer to Atul’s unique one-liners.

For example, on his first blog referred to above, in an August 2008 piece, he says “Knowing fully well that Indian authorities are not likely to exert themselves in such strenuous tasks like thinking, planning, etc, I have done all the hard work for them.” 🙂

I can go on and on, but I think readers might already be impatient about the length of this post.

So I’m going to go straight to the song now.

As usual, I owe this song to Avinashji. He was in fact the person who requested me to write a post for this occasion, and gave me a choice of a few songs to pick from.

I picked this one – Avinashji has provided the lyrics.

It is a multiple version song from the film ‘Jeevan Rekha’ (1974).

Some more details about the film, provided to me by Avinashji.

“Jeewan Rekhaa-1974” was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Nanak Films, Bombay’. It has Pran, Farida Jalal, Tabrez, Jalal Agha, Keshto Mukherjee, Chandrashekhar, Asit Sen, Aparna Choudhari, Vikrant, Jagdish Raj, Ravish Dhillon, Shetty, K.N.Singh, Ajit, Raj Rani, Rajni Bala, Pravin Pal, Polson, Ramlal, Sudarshan Sharma, Kirti Kumar, Kamaldeep, Dev Sharma, Surendra Kohli, Thakur Chhabra, Vikas Bali, Ashok Seth, Prince Shakil, Sagar, Rashid Khan, Master Vijay and others. Manmohan and Fariyal make special appearance in this movie.

This movie has as many as seven songs (including one multiple version song being presented today).
Three lyricist Dev Kohli (four songs), Anjaan (two songs) and Kafil Azar (one song) wrote the lyrics for this movie.
Music was composed by two music directors Suman Raj – three songs and Jagdish J- four songs.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Chandrani Mukherjee had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.07.1974.

Male version of this song is sung by Manna Dey, the female version by Chandrani Mukherjee.

I vaguely seem to remember a film by this name, but I don’t recall hearing this song before.

When Avinashji sent me the video(s) and I listened to the song, I instantly fell in love with it.

It’s a cheerful and positive song – and I think quite fitting for this occasion – “Geet Hai Ye Zindagi, Gungunaate Aur Gaate Chale Chalo, Chale Chalo”.

Doesn’t this just describe what Atul has been doing with this blog? It seems just perfect for Atul on his birthday. 🙂

So once again, wish you a very happy birthday, Atul. I hope you like this choice of song.

Just want to mention that the composer Jagdish is a totally new name for me. If anyone knows more about him, kindly enlighten me.

And Atul, if I’ve got any facts wrong in this post (my memory isn’t very good) , please let me know. 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

I know of a few people who have two birthdays each year. This can be explained as an adjustment for the sake of getting admission in schools which have a condition that the child should have completed 3½ when getting admitted to pre-school, and/or 5½ when the child starts class one in June. June is the time when the academic sessions begin in India and this rule has been in place for ages. So I have two cases for this in my family – my mother’s birth year was changed to comply with admission requirements.

June 1st is a special date for an Atulite who loves to travel. He has traveled to places which offer a lot of adventure and camping attractions. He has chronicled his travel experiences in www.sadanandsafar.blogspot.com.

It is our Sadanand ji’s birthday, a special birthday today. I shall not mention his age as I know him to be rather young at heart – his travels and treks are a testimony to that.

Currently his journey is discovering songs which we have hitherto not heard, Hindi songs which are from Bengali films. This series has given us some great songs. He has a lot of patience to dig out authentic and accurate information from varied sources like past issues of the magazine ‘Film India’ and other sites. He is painstakingly trying to find links. All the best to him in this – may we get more of the same. Here I will admit that his series has made me look out for songs in south Indian movies and a link that our In-house encyclopedia sent me has started that journey for me. I hope that I am able to sustain myself for as long as Sadanandji who has crossed 600 posts on the blog of which 28 posts were of Hindi songs in Bangla films. That is indeed a lot of rummaging through available online and offline material.

He has one more love – pointed out to me by our Avinash ji, whom I brain-stormed with before I sat to write this post. He loves poetry or shaayari as it is called. Avinash ji drew my attention towards Sadanandji’s love for Gopal Das Neeraj. So today we will have a song penned by Neeraj.

I just realized that I should explain my opening paragraph.

Since morning we have been wishing Sadanand ji through WhatsApp and he graciously thanked everyone but added “Thanks for wishing me on my official birthday. My actual birthday is **/07/****” . So that means we get to wish him one more time – ‘duguna wishes’. I am sure that this change in date of birth may have happened at the point of school admissions, am I right Sadanand ji ? As one of my many acquaintances loves to say – “same case as my mother”.

Now I shall move to the song for which I must thank Avinash ji; he has provided me the lyrics in both English and Devanagari (his forte). He also provided me the link to the audio and video and I realized why he suggested this song from “Gunaah” (1993).

I think I have seen this movie ages ago on television and this movie had Sunny Deol, Dimple Kapadia, Sumeet Saigal, Anjana Mumtaz, Shammi, Manohar Singh, Akash Khurana, Raza Murad, Avtar Gill  etc. It was the story of a young journalist (Sunny Deol) who is found wounded on the shores of Goa, treated by Dr. Joe D’Costa (Manohar Singh). He suffers from amnesia and then remembers details about himself, his life etc after five long years. He recollects that he was instrumental in the downfall of an upright politician and had a girl friend etc. Then the movie makes its way through the usual lanes of finding the real-culprits. The movie was directed by Mahesh Bhatt had songs written by Neeraj and Payam Saeedi (don’t know anything about this person) and Rajesh Roshan was the music director.

Today’s song starts on the seashore, in a Goan village setting with choreographer Ganesh Acharya (don’t know if he was the choreographer for this movie) lip-syncing to Manhar Udhas and we see Manohar Singh urging Sunny Deol to join the fun. I am unable to identify the girl (she looks very familiar) who is lip syncing to Sadhana Sargam.

Wishing Sadanand ji once again a musical day with family and remember your fellow Atulites when you cut the cake. 😉

“Veer Ghatotkach”(1949) was directed by Nanubhai Bhatt. The movie had Shahu Modak, Meena Kumari, Sumiti Gupte, Vasant Pahelwan, Naranjan Sharma, S N Tripathi, Sona Chatterjee, Leela Kumari, Shanta Patel, H Prakash etc in it.

The mythological movie, based on a character of Mahabharat, had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Veer Ghatotkach”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by a singer who is uncredited in HFGK. The song is lip synced by Shahu Modak while Meena Kumari looks on.

Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the singer of this song.
PS-Mr Sadanand Kamath believes that it is Shahu Modak himself singing the song.


Song-Jag mein karman ki gati nyaari (Veer Ghatotkach)(1949) Singer-Shahu Modak, Lyrics-Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

jag mein aen karman ki gati nyaari
jag mein aen karman ki gati nyaari
jag mein karman ki gati nyaari
murjha kar bhi khil jaati hai aasha ki phulwaari ee ee
murjha kar bhi khil jaati hai aasha ki phulwaari ee ee
karman ki gati nyaari
jag mein aen karman ki gati nyaari

hansna rona paana khona
sab is gati ki leela aa aa
sab is gati ki leela aa aa
rang birange sapnon ka hai ye sansaar rangeela
bandhe huye hai karm dor mein
bandhe huye hai karm dor mein saare hi nar naari ee ee
karman ki gati nyaari jag mein
karman ki gati nyaari
karam bhoomi par kaanton ke sang
phoolon ki sej suhani
phoolon ki sej suhani
dukh sukh donon saath saath hai
jag ki yahi kahaani
mat niraash ho khil jaayegi
mat nirash ho khil jaayegi
man ki kesar kyaari ee ee
karman ki gati nyaari
jag mein karman ki gati nyaari

jaisi karni waisi bharni
yahi yahaan ka lekha aa aa
yahi yahaan ka lekha
nahin mitaaye mit sakti jo khhinchi bhaagy ki rekha
saras savera aaya dekho
saras savera aaya dekho
rain gayi andhiyaari ee ee
karman ki gati nyaari
jag mein karman ki gati nyaari

“Gopichand”(1958) was produced by Ishwarlal and Prabhudas K Tanna and directed by Ishwarlal for Vasundhara Chitra, Bombay. This mythological movie had Shahu Modak, Shyama, B M Vyas, Prem Adib, Paro, Sundar, Malay Sarkar, Kesari, Salvi, Durga Khote etc in it.

This obscure movie had eight obscure songs in it.

Today (1 may 2020) is the 101st birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 May 1919 – 24 October 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Gopichand”(1958). This song is sung by Manna Dey. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this philosophical song is available. Seeing that Manna Dey was the only male playback singer in this movie, he may have sung this song for the main actor of the movie, namely Shahu Modak.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Listening to this philosophical song has calming infuence on the senses. It is just the kind of song that one would like to listen to in view of the recent bereavements in the film industry.

With this song, “Gopichand”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Teri duniya maati ki re (Gopichand)(1958) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 16
——————————————————-

25/02/2020 – Death anniversary of S. H. Bihari
—————————————————

I am presenting this Rafi sahab solo, philosophical song in memory of Shamsul Huda Bihari (1922-1987) on his 33rd death anniversary day today (25 february 2020).

S. H. Bihari was born in 1922 and his filmy career started in late 1940s it appears.

First song in Rafi Excel sheet is the Rafi-Suraiyya duet “Qismat ke likkhe ko mitaa na sakaa” from Duniya(1949). This would appear to be the first film song by S. H. Bihari, because even the website(http://www.shbihari.com/Welcome.html) on S. H. Bihari is listing his film career from 1950 onwards. There is no mention of his having written this song or other songs from the film. Another song from this film has featured in my series “Divas of hindi film music”.

As per the stats page in the blog he has written total 425 film songs, out of which 175 are posted in the blog. Frankly, through 50’s and 60’s the lyricist scene was full of stalwarts and legendary poets mainly urdu shayars. The music director had multiple choices. Some chose to stick to their tried and tested poets for long durations like Shankar-Jaikishan and Naushad. Others are moving from lyricist to lyricist and poet to another poet or using a combination of poets to write songs for them. But by and large, each music director would work with one lyricist for a particular movie, depending of the genre of the film and type of songs required. A case in point is Ravi- Shakeel Badayauni for ‘Chaudhvi ka chaand” and S. D. Burman- Shakeel Badayuni for ‘Benazir”. Another situation is Madan Mohan-Kaifi Azmi for Chetan Anand’s films like namely ‘Haqueeqat”, ‘Hindustaan ki Qasam”, “Hanste Zakhm” and “Heer Ranjha”. Otherwise Madan Mohan had distinct preference for Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Rajendra Krishan and Majrooh Sultanpuri. Madan Mohan even did “Laila Majnu” with Sahir Ludhianvi.

Let’s go back to S. H. Bihari. Seeing his filmography, he seems to be a favourite of Hemant Kumar through 50’s and Ravi’s during late 50’s. Through 60’s he worked extensively with O. P. Nayyar, achieving the peak with block buster films like ‘Kashmir ki Kali” and “Ek Musafir Ek Hasina”. The 60’s is the productive decade also working with various music director like, Usha Khanna, Ravi, Shankar-Jaikishan, Ram-Ganguly etc. During 70’s again is mixed fare with Shankar- Jaikishan, O. P. Nayyar and various composers. And the 80’s is mostly with Laxmikant-pyarelal and notable hit music score is in Pyar Jhukta Nahi(1985).
This song from Madhur Milan(1955) is a sweet sounding melodious, motivational and philosophical song. The more I hear such Rafi song the more I am enamoured with Rafi sahab solos of 50’s decade. Song of this film released on 01.01.1955, are composed by Bulo C. Rani. The cast is Mahipal, Madanpuri, Bhudo Advani, Roopmala and Nigar Sultana. Out of twelve songs only 5 songs are posted in the blog. A trivia I gathered from these posts is that the lead actor Nigar Sultana has written a song for the film which is picturized on herself.

The song talks of long journey and hurdles in the journey. It could also mean the eternal journey which is inevitable, seeing that “jaana hai musaafir tujhe har haal mein jaana” is repeated many times. Also the ‘thikaana’ is not just ‘dur’ but ‘badi door’ also, means a long struggle to reach the destination. The line “Chhoti teri seemaaon ka dushman hai zamaana” is meant to convey the personal limitations of the ‘musaafir’ or it can even mean the ‘boundaries of integrity/values’ which the musaafir is loath to lose that the ‘zamaana’ would prefer to destroy. Also those ‘taqdeer ki faujen’ is a phantom, creating a scene where there is a fight with the destiny for the values, truth and maintain the integrity.

The second stanza is too fascinating. This talks of ‘revolution’ or great upheaval, which will go down in history as an achievement. “chaand sitaare” bear witness of this ‘bravery’ and the world shall remember the fascinating story.

I am taking a liberty of reproducing an essay which I wrote(again) for an essay competition in the office.

Integrity – A way of life.

Integrity for me – definitely should be a way of life.
Integrity will come with total transparency in all aspect of life. This is the only way of achieving it. Total integration of thoughts, speech and deeds. Ha, so simple isn’t it?
There is no doubting that a human beings integrity should be beyond doubt. One may ask the question that it is beyond doubt in all cases, where exactly? In the utopian world would be my answer.
We may lament all we want about the limitations of human fallibility. The path of truth is always fraught with thorns, as the thinkers and philosophers throughout the history of this civilization have concurred.
As the most superior creation of the God Almighty, we have a unique gift to offer to the world. We can be true to ourselves as we possess the intelligence to see the truth and recognize it and achieve a semblance of it, to whatever extant it is possible for each one of us. Truth truly is an achievement, has always been one in all eras. The very nature and purity of the concept makes sure that it is a superior achievement, taking the achiever to a higher plain. In an ideal society this achievement should have been the goal of life. All the ancient philosophies and religions point to this.

Religious beliefs are a very sure shot way of achieving this recognition of truth and total amalgamation of truth in thoughts, speech and deeds. The belief that the god Almighty is watching us, nothing is hidden from him and that we have to answer for all our deeds on the ‘Day of Judgment’, will go all the way to the achievement of this task. The fact that nothing can be hidden from a superior force will make each and every one of us to face facts.
During my school days, I recall that there used to a lecture/period for the topic of ‘Deeniyat’. Here as very young children, we were taught that there are two angels sitting on both our shoulders, recording our deeds. The angel on the right shoulder records all our good deed, like we helped someone, gave charity, spoke truth. Alternatively, the angel on the left shoulder records all our bad deeds, if we lied, if we deceived someone, or treated anyone badly etc. Come to think of it, when all is said and done, there are more things that we can do are in the category of bad deeds and there are very few falling under good deeds. I can elaborate, but there is no need for it. In our circumstances and makeup, it is easier to do bad deeds than good. Because sticking to the truth is tougher and keeps getting tougher.

Here is another story heard in childhood, which adds value addition to my discourse here:

A teacher gave a task to the children – He gave them a chick each, asked them to take it to a place where no one can see you and kill it.
Next day, all the kids came and told their story of the task. Somebody went to the bathroom, someone went to the storeroom, to garage etc to kill the chick. Only one child had still not killed it and brought it to school. The teacher asked him that why he did not complete the task. The child replied that he could not find a place where no one can see it to complete the task, because God almighty was everywhere and is constantly watching, so where to go. There is no place where you can hide from the omnipresence of God almighty.

The religions, I have always believed are the means to achieve one goal,that is to regulate human behavior.

A wise man was once asked: Sir, in which field could I make a great career ?

He said: Be a good human being. There is a huge opportunity in this area and very little competition.
And lastly, life is about choices. Some we regret, some we are proud of and some will haunt us. We are what we choose to be.
Everything that happens in life is not fixed… it can be changed by a weapon called will power.
I think Allama Iqbal meant this only here :
Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqdeer se pehle
Khuda bande se khud puchhe bataa teri razaa kya hai.
