Touch the Sky with Glory

What an appropriate motto this is, for the flying heroes of our national force that is responsible for the defense of our nation’s skies, and the keepers of our aerial security. The Indian Air Force, the aerial arm of our armed forces, celebrated its 85 anniversary yesterday – 8th October, 2017.

War is never a good thing. No one wins in a war. Everyone loses. Behind the victories claimed by the conquerors, there always are brutal losses which one does not speak of. But then, if a war is thrust upon someone, then standing up and fighting for what is right is the inevitable path to be taken.  The lines written by Kaifi Azmi in this song, express this so well,

jung rahmat hai ke laanat, ye sawaal ab na uthe
jung jab aa hi gayi sar pe to rahmat hogi

जंग रहमत है के लानत, ये सवाल अब ना उठे
जंग जब आ ही गई सर पे तो रहमत होगी

This post is a salute to the fearless warriors of our armed forces, and especially our Air Force, on this day of celebrating its 85 years of history.

The origins of the Indian Air Force are in the Royal Air Force of Great Britain. India was under the British rule in 1932, when the decision was taken to set up an auxiliary air force unit in India, under the larger umbrella of the Royal Air Force.

In 1928-29 the Government of India (under British rule) decided to induct some Indians in the Royal Air Force. The first six Indians selected to undergo two years of flying training at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell were Subroto Mukherjee, Harish Chandra Sircar, Aizad Baksh Awan, Bhupendra Singh, Amarjeet Singh and JN Tandon. After completing their training at Cranwell, the Indian pilots passed through the Army Cooperation School at Old Sarum in Wiltshire. After the completion of their training, five of these men were commissioned into service with the Royal Air Force. JN Tandon, on account of his short stature, was reverted to a logistic role, and not commissioned for flying.

On 8th October, 1932, the Indian Air Force Act was passed by the Indian Legislative Assembly, and the Indian Air Force was born. The Indian Air Force was established as an auxiliary air force of the Royal Air Force. The new force adopted the uniforms, badges, brevets and insignia of the Royal Air Force.

The first five pilots commissioned into the IAF were the same five who had been inducted into the Royal Air Force after completing their training at RAF Cranwell – Harish Chandra Sircar, Subroto Mukerjee, Bhupendra Singh, Aizad Baksh Awan and Amarjeet Singh. All of them were commissioned as Pilot Officers. Subroto Mukerjee later went on to become the IAF’s first Indian Chief of the Air Staff.

On 1 April 1933, the Indian Air Force got its first flying machines – four Westland Wapiti biplanes. The IAF commissioned its first squadron, No. 1 Squadron, at Karachi (now in Pakistan) with five Indian pilots listed above. The Indian pilots were led by RAF Commanding officer Flight Lieutenant (later Air Vice Marshal) Cecil Bouchier.

Subsequent batches inducted before World War II included Aspy Engineer, KK Majumdar, Narendra, Daljit Singh, Henry Runganadhan, RHD Singh, Baba Mehar Singh, SN Goyal, Prithpal Singh and Arjan Singh. Here is another name that is very familiar to all – Arjan Singh went on to become the first and only Air Chief designated as the Marshal of the Air Force (MAF). He is the only five star officer in the history of our Air Force. MAF Arjan Singh recently passed away (16th September, 2017) in Delhi, at the age of 98.

In recognition of the services rendered by the IAF during the World War II, King George VI conferred the prefix “Royal” in 1945. Thereafter the IAF was referred to as Royal Indian Air Force. In 1947, when the British left the Indian sub-continent, and the partition of this country happened the military forces were also partitioned. On 15th August, 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force gave up 3 divisions which were geographically based in the newly formed territories of Pakistan, and the Royal Pakistan Air Force was born.

Although the nation supposedly attained independence on 15th Aug, 1947, it continued to be a Dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations, which means that we as a nation, were actually still paying our allegiance to the British Crown. In January 1950, when India adopted their own Constitution, and became a republic, the prefix “Royal” was dropped and the force became truly the Indian Air Force. However, the person at the head of the Air Force continued to be a non-Indian till 1954. As per seniority and age, the Air Force continued with three more Air Chief Marshals from 1947 to 1954. In 1954, the last of the Birtish chiefs superannuated from the top position, and the mantle of the top official came to Air Marshal Subroto Mukherjee, the first Indian head of the Indian Air Force.

The IAF has seen serious action in the four wars that have been fought with Pakistan (1948, 1965, 1971 and 1999). The force was not utilized during the 1962 conflict with China, despite being the superior air power in the region at that time. China’s forays into the Himalayan regions were recent at that time and their air force did not have the reach to come up to the Indo-China borders. A lack of political will and vision, one may say, and the IAF was utilized only for supplying the front lines.

Although a child (in single digits) at that time, my memories of the 1965 war are still quite detailed. The Pakistan Air Force was supposedly the superior force, equipped with American supplied F-86 Sabre jets, with the Indian Air Force flying the comparatively puny Gnat and Mystere aircrafts. But the valor and the heroism of the Indian pilots is now the stuff of a very proud history. The supposedly puny Gnat fighter planes were responsible for downing 6 Sabre jets, and earned the nickname of ‘Sabre Slayers’. Names like Sqadron Leader Keelor (actually two brother flyers – Trevor and Denzill) and Flying Officer Nebb, became household heroes, as the news poured in every day about the victories of the Indian Air Force.

The force was led by Air Marshal Arjan Singh during this period of conflict. Retired and past officers of the Air Force remember him dearly as a valiant leader who led from the front. While the conflict was in progress, the Air Marshal refused to stay put in Delhi, and was constantly visiting the front line airfields, meeting his officers and pilots, each one of them personally. So many of his people have consistently mentioned his reaching out to his men, how he would remember the names of each one of them, how he would be interested in knowing the details of their exploits in the air. And not just that, he reached out personally to the families of the heroes, and taking care to connect with the widowed wives and children of the flyers who laid down their lives in action.

He put the interest and safety of his airmen before his own. Close friend and former Air Chief Marshal NC Suri narrates an episode that underlines this. The Canberra bomber planes, one of the planes with the IAF, had a peculiar design. The pilot’s seat was designed as an ejection seat (that allows the pilot to eject automatically from the aircraft, in case of an emergency). However, the navigator seat was not, and the navigator, in the time of an emergency, had to physically disengage himself from the seat, break open some window and jump out of the aircraft. Whenever Arjan Singh flew a Canberra, he would refuse to take out the safety pin of the pilot seat’s ejection mechanism, rendering it ineffective. In other words, he was also incapable of ejecting from the aircraft, if an emergency arose. ACM NC Suri adds “So here is a man who felt that his navigator was equally important to him, which was very remarkable.”.

Yes, ‘Touch the Sky with Glory’, a motto that MAF Arjan Singh believed in and also lived by. The saga of our nation’s Air Force is full of numerous such people and their acts of valor and heroism.

As a salute to the brave airmen of our Air Force, I present this rousing song of bravery and leadership, from the 1973 film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. Folks will remember this film one of the very few films made on the theme of Indian Air Force, its airmen and their exploits and triumphs. The time frame it was released indicates that it covered the events of the then recent past, i.e. the 1971 war with Pakistan.

The song itself needs no introduction – it has been one of the most popular patriotic songs to emerge from Hindi films. The words are from the pen of Kaifi Azmi, and the rousing marching music comes from the baton of Madan Mohan. The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Manna Dey. In the film, this song appears at 3 places. In the beginning when the titles start to roll, somewhat later once again when the war with the enemy is in full swing, and at the end, as the film comes to a close. Interestingly enough, the titles of the film do no start till almost twelve and a half minutes into the film. (So this song cannot be categorized as the film opening song.)

We see a few characters in the video clip, especially in the first part. There is Rajkumar, Chetan Anand, Balraj Sahni, Veena, Vijay Anand, Priya Rajvansh, Parikshit Sahni etc. I have edited to present all the three parts of this song as a single clip. I have retained a few seconds of the scene just prior to the start of the first part – I really like the dialogue rendered by Rajkumar, just as the song starts.

So here is a salute and a tribute – to the daring ‘jaanbaaz’ flyers and the brave ground and support staff, that man this valiant Air Force – the safe keepers of the Indian airspace.

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्
Jai Hind.

[Ed Note: This song is the fourth and final one from this film to be posted on our blog. With this post, the film ‘Hindustan Ki Qasam’ joins the list of films with all songs posted.]

“Delhi Junction”(1960) was produced by RL Sharma and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Nigaaristan (India) Films, Bombay. The movie had Ajeet, Shakeela, Nishi, Maruti, Manorama, Tiwari, Pran, Protima Devi, Murad, Rafiq, Kamal Mohan, Harun, Anwari Bai, Pal Sharma, Jagdish Kanwal, Nadir, Satish, Sadiq, Sarita, Kukku, Rajni, and Khurshid etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that were penned by four lyricists viz. PL Santoshi, Prem Dhawan, Farooque Kaiser and Gulshan Bawra. 

Three songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fourth song from “Delhi Junction”(1960). This song is a Rafi-Lata duet with chorus. It is penned by Prem Dhawan. Music is composed by Kalyanji.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair of Shakeela and Ajeet. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Kehti hoon main sach sach (Delhi Junction)(1960) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Kalyanji
Chorus

Lyrics

ho ho ho ho

ae ji rone do
ho kehti hoon main sach sach

wo hi na tum ne jaana

kehti hoon main sach sach

poochho ji humse pyaar ki baaten

“Raam Navami”(1956) was produced by Jasubhai Patel and directed by Raman B Desai for Subhag Productions, Bombay. The partially color Mythological movie had Nirupa Roy, Prem Adib, Tiwari, Yashoshara Katju, Babau Raje, Shobha Khote, Rajkumar, Raj Adib, Bheem, Ratnamala, Nandu Khote, Pandey, Sheela, Amrit Rana, Radheshyam, Hublikar, Singh, Samson, Mahesh Kumar, Baijnath, Jawahar Kaul, Rooplaxmi, Shree Bhagwan, Dubey, Poonam Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. All eight songs had the voice of Asha Bhonsle in it.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here is the third song from “Raam Navami”(1956) to appear in the blog.
Asha Bhonsle is the female singer alongwith chorus. All sites, including HFGK mentions that this song has the voices of Rafi and Balbir as well. The audio quality is poor and I am unable to detect more than one lead voice in the song.

The song is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

I have failed to get many words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help identify the male voices and they are also requested to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

for the time being, I have assumed that the voices of Rafi and Balbir are there in the song, though I am personally not sure of it on the basis of the audio of the song.

Today (28 september 2017) is the birth anniversary of one and only Lata Mangeshkar. People may have wondered why there was a lull in the blog today. These days we have just a couple of posts daily with some rare days when we manage to crank up the rate to day four of five songs a day.

Lata Mangeshkar is the most well represented artist in the blog. As many as 3244 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar are represented in the blog. There was a time when she averaged over one song a day in the blog. With less songs posted in the blog over the last couple of years, now the figure stands at 3244 songs /3359 days, viz. 0.966 songs per day.

Out of these 3244 songs, as many as 2074 songs are solo songs. So the remaining 1170 of her songs are duets and others. Her most common singing partner has been Rafi. The two of them have collaborated in around 415 duets or so. As many as 328 of these duets are already represented in the blog.

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birth anniversary today, here is a less heard Rafi Lata duet. This song is from “Band Master” (1963). This movie was directed by Ravindra Dave for R L Films, Bombay. This obscure movie had Jagdeep, Azra, Lalita Pawar, Rajan Haksar, Ravikant etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs including the song under question. But on listening to the songs, one can easily identify the voices in all four songs.

The song under discussion, the third song from the movie to be covered here, is sung by Lata and Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar (28 september 1929), here is the 329th Rafi-Lata duet to appear in the blog. I take this opportunity to wish her a very happy birth anniversary and wish her many more happy returns of the day.


Song-Sajna saawan aaya (Band Master)(1963) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

haaye
dil baandh ke mera aanchal mein
ho

sajna saawan aaya

“Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) was a mythological (bhakti pradhan) movie which was directed by Shanti Kumar for Jayshakti Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Anant Marathe, Ameerbai Karnataki, Shashi Kapoor (senior), Pande, Ved Prakash, Laxman, Brahmbhatt, Dubey, Sinha, Om Prakash, Shukla, Sitaram etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it and HFGK does not contain details of singers for any songs.

Here is the first song from “Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) to appear in the blog. Though HFGK is silent about the singer, listening to the song leavs us in no doubt that this song is sung by Rafi. It is one of the three songs in this movie that are known to contain the voice of Rafi and find mention in Rafi’s excel sheet.

Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

The song can be described as a black humour genre of song. It describes an eighty year old man desiring to marry a young woman but dies just as he tries to climb on the ghodi and thus spares the would be bride and others much agony.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Assi baras ka boodhha baaba karne chala hai aaj lagan (Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya)(1948) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Shankarrao Vyas

Lyrics

assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
maut ke panje se bachne ko
byaahne chala hai nayi dulhan
assi baras ka boodha

baalon mein kaali syaahi lagaaye
aji vastron se wo ang chhupaaye
dagmag dagmag naar hilaaye
thumak thumak kar paanv badhaaye
maut ki raani khadi pukaare
kya man mein ho raha magan
assi baras ka boodha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
assi baras ka boodha

paad padosi kahe deewana
aji buddhi ka kuchh nahin thikana
ladki ke ladke aa bolen
byaahne chale bhai naani naana
ladkon ke ladke bolen
boodhe baba ko phir aaya bachpan
mere baaba ko aaya phir bachpan
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
assi baras ka boodha

wo kas ke kamar taiyyaar hua
jhat ghode per aswaar hua
thhes lagi ghoda bidka
bewde ka beda paar hua
shaadi ke taraane band huye
shaadi ke taraane
shaadi ke taraane band huye
chautarfa phail gaya maatam
assi baras ka booddha baba
karne chala thha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

chauri se ban gai chita
aur jaame se ban gaya kafan
aur jaame ka ban gaya kafan
baandh boondhne chale baaraati
ladke karen sab kriya karam
sage sambandhi khaayen laddu
sage sambandhi
sage sambandhi khaayen laddu
sabki door hui uljhan
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala tha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

ladki ka neelaam kiya thha
maat pita ne lekar dhan
aji maat pita ne lekar dhan
boodhe ki sun kar ke mrityu
wo bhi manaane lage jashan
kar di jawaan se shaadi
kar di jawaan se shaadi uski
ladki ka khul gaya karam
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala tha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

dhan ke lobhi socho samjho
paise per mat becho dharam
aji paise per mat becho dharam
garib gaay ki kanya par kasaai ka mat karo karam
apna jeewan maran sudhaaro
apna jeewan maran sudhaaro
baar baar kehte hain hum
assi baras ka booddha baba
karne chala thha naya lagan

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today’s post is under instructions from my husband- Peevesie’s Dad. Oh yes, he is a silent-satulite (a term coined by team Atulites when referring to spouses of Atulites, the term has no geographical or scientific connotation and will be found only in Atulite-lingo 🙂 ). He had asked me to write a post after we returned from a pilgrimage of Sabarimala, which is the abode of Swami Ayyappa. And as far as possible I fulfil every farmaish/ request of his (actually the children, Peevesie more than her brother, rag the two of us for going out of our way to fulfil each other’s requests- there have been no demands between the two of us only requests).

A recent program that I attended at Chowdiah Memorial with Asha Bhonsle as the attraction is a case in point – we were scheduled to go to Kerala on that date to drop my dear mom-in-law at our native village and my husband (sweetly) asked me to go ahead and book tickets for the show and he himself went with his mom. So, when he indulges me how can I not do what he says? 🙂 These last two months I had been looking for a song that would accompany the post but never found any song or bhajan dedicated to Ayyappa in a Hindi song album- filmy or non-filmy. Even looking up dubbed movies drew a blank. Whatever the internet had to offer were songs in the south Indian languages. But now I think I have found a way out.

The pilgrimage to Sabarimala is neither easy nor tough; what it needs is commitment on the part of the devotee. It can be undertaken by all men and females below the age of 10 and above the age of 50. There are a few legends to explain why this restriction is in place for the ladies. But the main reason, for ladies of age group 10-50 not being allowed is biological and instead of arguing against it; which some sections of the equality for females brigade has undertaken, my personal view is we should respect it. If some rule has been in place for an activity we follow it. If there is a dress code to a party we adhere to it. I have seen people follow the rule of covering their heads at gurudwaras and mosques (am not sure if churches have this rule, but have seen some sections of Kerala Christians cover their heads). If rules can be followed at these places then why not at Hindu places of worship. (I hope that my thoughts are not construed to be against equality for the female gender, they are just my way of looking at things)

The Sabarimala temple is open for a few days (of the Malayalam calendar) every month and from November 15th to January 20th (I think). Devotees who plan to undertake the trip normally live a satvik life for a period of 40 days. They abstain from wine and women, the stricter followers make their own food, visit an Ayyappa temple twice a day, walk bare foot and also don’t shave. Then just before leaving for the trip they have a ritual wherein they gather the main things needed for the pilgrimage in a bag which is carried on their heads till they reach the temple. The bag typically contains two or three coconuts, one of which is filled with ghee for the abhishek of the deity. Plus, pooja items like camphor, agarbatti, pan-supari, beaten rice etc.

The temple itself is in the Periyar Tiger Reserve of western ghats in Kerala’s Pathanamthitta District. One can go up to the Pampa river (which is at the base of the path leading up to the temple) by road, from where it is a climb of about 5 kms of which the initial 2 km or so is very steep. Of course, there are a few palkhis available to carry up those who find the climb difficult. But when one sees the passion in those climbing alongside us it spurs us to try and do the distance without palki assistance. That is what happened with me. I felt a sense of tiredness after the initial half an hour; then I saw who were the people around me. There was a small boy taking his almost 80-year-old grandparents with him. Then there was a man with a twisted ankle making his way uphill and that made me feel I should complete the route. And there is the chant of Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa (we take refuge in you ayyappa) reverberating about the route, enough to egg you on. A seasoned devotee (like my husband who has gone close to 25 times) may do the path in about two or two and half hours depending on the weather; and I took about two hours and forty minutes in spite of the initial panting and nausea due to the height. But I must admit that then it had felt like a never-ending walk.

Now any person undertaking the pilgrimage for the first time is called a “Kanni Ayyappan” and our group had two of us. And then last month around Onam time when the temple was open my sister’s family- her husband and two nine-year-old sons- also went to the temple. The twins were the life of the group along with a few other kids. About 10-15 years back my aged parents-in-law and parents had undertaken the trip. So, what I am trying to say is age and health should not stop a determined soul from making the trip and there are experienced Ayyappas (that is the term with which the male devotees address each other) to guide those who want to make the trip and believe me it was a great experience enough to make me feel I should redo it.

Reading the above description may have sent images of the trek to Kedarnath, Yamunotri or Vaishno Devi to the reader. Even I recalled my Kedarnath, Yamunotri trip as I was chanting Swamiye Sharanam Ayyappa and singing all the Ayyappa songs I knew to myself during the walk. And in my mind, I visualised my dearest mom-in-law undertaking the Vaishno Devi pilgrimage about 10 years back. Hats off to her spirit! I hope I am half as energetic when I reach her age.

Now that I have mentioned vaishno devi I looked for a song that will show the journey to the temple in the Himalayas in Kashmir. And I found that there is a song in the 1980 released J. Om Prakash movie which shows Rameshwari and Jeetendra going to Vaishno Devi as “Mannat” fulfilment of his mother Sulochana. (wonder why she didn’t accompany them 🙂 ) it shows them trudging up to the temple along with other devotees much like what I experienced. But the difference is the distance which my mom-in-law says is close to 14 kms. The song is from the pen of Anand Bakshi and Laxmi- Pyare are the music directors. Narendra Chanchal and Mohd. Rafi are the playback.
I think this is a good song to start Navaratri with. Bolo Jai Mata Ki!

Editor’ note:- This is the sixth and final song from “Asha”(1980) to appear in the blog. with this song, “Asha”(1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“China Town”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samant for Shakti films, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen, Madan Puri, S N Bannerji, Mridula, Jeewankala, Gautam Mukherji, Kanu Roy, Shetty, Samson, Keshav, Khursheed, Tuntun, Rasheed Khan, Polson, F C Chang, Khatana, Fazal, Abdul, Lydia, Deendayal, Balaram, Ranjeet Sood, Shamsher Singh, Master aziz, Master Aslam, Aruna, Ram Reddy, Bina, Mauji Singh, B Bannerji, Bhattacharya, Minu, Mohan, Omi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the suth song from “China Town”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is a duet sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a car song on Shakila and Shammi Kapoor. Seeing that it is a Rafi song picturised on Shammi Kapoor, this song is a rather unknown song. Personally I had not heard this song before.


Song-Ye rang na chhotega ulfat ki nishaani hai (Chinatown)(1962) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ravi
Both

Lyrics

ye rang na chhootega
ulfat ki nishaani hai
ye rang na chootega
ulfat ki nishaani hai
kuchh tera fasaana hai
kuchh meri kahaani hai

ye rang na chhootega
ulfat ki nishaani hai
ye rang na chhootega

lehra ke uthha mausam
rut ban ke karaar aayi
lehra ke utha mausam
rut ban ke karaar aayi
aayi to magar kitna
tarsa ke bahaar aayi

tarsa ke bahaar aayi
par kitni suhaani hai
ye rang na chhootega

aanken hain tumhaari
ya chhalka hua paimaana
aanken hain tumhaari
ya chhalka hua paimaana

apna to muhabbat mein dil ho gaya deewaana
ya hum hi deewaane hai
ya rut hi deewaani hai

ye rang na chhootega

dekho na bhula dena
in pyaar ki waadon ko
dekho na bhula dena
in pyaar ki waadon ko
tum bhi na badal dena
chaahat ke iraadon ko

jab preet lagi tumse
kuchh maine bhi thhaani hai
ye rang na chhootega
ulfat ki nishaani hai
kuchh tera fasaana hai
kuchh meri kahaani hai

ye rang na chhootega
ulfat ki nishaani hai
ye rang na chhootega
