There was some speculation among regulars about the inactivity in the blog today despite it being a sunday. Someone felt that it was the long weekend effect.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I present today’s song on this blog.

I’ve often said that one of the many joys for me, when I sit to listen to music, is to discover songs I’ve never heard before. This discovery might come from the radio, or from the internet. Or from another person.

The ghazal na kisi ki aankh ka noor hoon was earlier wrongly associated with Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal emperor as most of us thought that this ghazal was written by him. The sentiments expressed in the ghazal suited his state of mind after the decline of the Mughal dynasty and the uprising of 1857. Recently, it has been proved that the author of this ghazal was Muztar Khairabadi (1865-1927).

‘प’

“पढ़े लिखे कुछ खास नहीं पर नाम है मिस्टर वाई”

This song has been waiting in the wings, since the day I posted “Thandi Thandi Hawaa Mujhe Chhede Yahaan”, as part of the ‘Missing Films of 1960s’ series. At first I had shortlisted this Rafi Sb’s song for that post. But then on second thoughts, I changed it and saved this song for the Rafi Sb series. Good choice, I think. This song fits in well on the ‘प’ letter position.

‘न’

“नादान ना बन ए मतवाले”

There are quite a few songs by Rafi Sb, starting with the alphabet ‘न’, and which are still to be posted. As I was in the process to shortlist the song for today’s alphabet, I came across this unfamiliar song from the film ‘Rangeela’ from 1953. The thing that struck me was the title line “Naadaan Na Ban Ae Matwaale”. The first thought that came to my mind – that this is a sad, philosophical type of song, kind of similar to “Moorakh Hai Insaan” (‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’, 1961) and “Mat Bhool Arre Insaan” (‘Mastaana’, 1954). Not really inclined for a poignant song today, I skipped this, and moved ahead in the list. But on second thought; do not know what prompted me to come back to this song, and I decided to listen to it. And I am surprised – this turns out to be actually a fun song, on the topic of eve teasing. And I knew I had my selection for today’s post.:)

This is a Bhajan from film Tulsidas-54. There have been many films on Tulsidas. Sant Tulsidas was first produced in 1934, then in 1939 and then in 1972. The same topic with title Tulsidas was in films in 1954 and 19991.

‘ध’

“धीरे चल ज़रा, ओ पागल पुरवइय्या”

Vintage Rafi – that was my reaction on hearing this song, actually for the first time yesterday. And then I checked the other details, and find, this song is likely one the few very last songs that Rafi Sb would have recorded. This song comes from the 1980 vigilantes-and-robbers type story – ‘Hum Paanch’. As I chanced upon this song and started to play, my first feeling was – 1960s, or thereabouts.  The sedate rhythm and the soft rendition, gives that charmed old world feeling of the golden era. Just that the picturization visual in the video clip gives one the clue that this song is much later than 1960s.

I could not have missed the next episode in the Hindi alphabet series on Rafi Sb today. And it is by good luck that I am able to locate a song that adds one more anniversary together, and quite appropriately so.
