Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 19
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 5 February 2013, four songs from four different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7449 Hamen itna bata de bhagwaan Ratna Manjari(1955) 2 songs covered out of 5 by now
7450 Ye duniya rail niraali Paayal (1957) 7 songs covered out of 9 by now
7451 Hip hip hurray College Girl (1960) Movie YIPPEED by now
7452 Hum pyaar karna sakta ke nahin sakta Shabistan (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can observe that two movies (out of four) whose songs were covered on the blog on this date ten years ago (on 5 February 2013) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with two unYIPPEED movies which are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today ten years later (on 5 February 2023).

“Ratnamanjari”(1955) is one of them.

“Ratnamanjari”(1955) was produced by Trivedi and directed by G P Pawar for Chitrabharati, Bombay. The movie had Shakila, Mahipal, Rehana, Sapru, Maruti, Moni Chatterjee, Roopmala etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Ratnamanjari”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi.B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

From the sounds of it, this song is an eve teasing song from Satyug or Dwapar Yug. 🙂 Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that it is picturised on Mahipal and Shakila.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati today.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Song-Hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan (Maa Ke Aansoo)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Madan Mohan (lyricist), MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

aandhi mein gunaahon ka diya jal nahin sakta
jo bachke aa pahuncha hai
anjaam tera tere hi haathon mein hai naadaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke fariston se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

maathe se siyaah daag gunaahon ke mita de
gunaahon ke mita de
neki ke diye gham ke andhere mein jala de
andhere mein jala de
do din ki khushi ke liye tu bech na imaan
tu bech na imaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
Allaah ka ye ghar to shaheedon ke liye hai
hai waqt sambhalne ka
sambhal jaa arre naadaaan
sambhal jaa arre naadaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

kya teri duaaon se falak hil nahin sakta
falak hil nahin sakta
is dar se jo tu chaahe to kya mil nahin sakta
to kya mil nahin sakta
thhak jaayega neki se buraayi ka ye toofaan
buraayi ka ye toofaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

74th Republic Day on 26th January, 2023

We have all heard this ghazal, in the form of patriotic songs, songs with nationalistic flavour in various films made on Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and some not made on him. Such is the power of this inquilabi poetry, that people seemed to have recited and memorised this one through generations, when there was no digitalization of data and published material was not available for cheap. Or not easily accessible in remote areas. The ghazal has gone hand in hand with ‘mera rang de basanti chola’ through out history of independent India, in movies and beyond. Be it hindi films or regional language films, obviously Punjabi movies. But I am prepared to not be surprised to find these two songs in other regional language films, like Bengali, Marathi and others.

Just today, Peevesie’s Mom’s post on ‘Kaahe ko Biyaahi Bides’ has appeared on the blog. The same creation by Amir Khusro, for the umpteenth time. And this was created centuries ago. At least ‘sarfaroshi ki tamanna’ is less than 100 years old.

I am reproducing here the original ghazal by Bismil Azimabadi (Sourced from Rekhta.com in devnagari script).

सरफ़रोशी की तमन्ना अब हमारे दिल में है
देखना है ज़ोर कितना बाज़ू-ए-क़ातिल में है

ऐ शहीद-ए-मुल्क-ओ-मिल्लत मैं तिरे ऊपर निसार
ले तिरी हिम्मत का चर्चा ग़ैर की महफ़िल में है

वाए क़िस्मत पाँव की ऐ ज़ोफ़ कुछ चलती नहीं
कारवाँ अपना अभी तक पहली ही मंज़िल में है

रहरव-ए-राह-ए-मोहब्बत रह न जाना राह में
लज़्ज़त-ए-सहरा-नवर्दी दूरी-ए-मंज़िल में है

शौक़ से राह-ए-मोहब्बत की मुसीबत झेल ले
इक ख़ुशी का राज़ पिन्हाँ जादा-ए-मंज़िल में है

आज फिर मक़्तल में क़ातिल कह रहा है बार बार
आएँ वो शौक़-ए-शहादत जिन के जिन के दिल में है

मरने वालो आओ अब गर्दन कटाओ शौक़ से
ये ग़नीमत वक़्त है ख़ंजर कफ़-ए-क़ातिल में है

माने-ए-इज़हार तुम को है हया, हम को अदब
कुछ तुम्हारे दिल के अंदर कुछ हमारे दिल में है

मय-कदा सुनसान ख़ुम उल्टे पड़े हैं जाम चूर
सर-निगूँ बैठा है साक़ी जो तिरी महफ़िल में है

वक़्त आने दे दिखा देंगे तुझे ऐ आसमाँ
हम अभी से क्यूँ बताएँ क्या हमारे दिल में है

अब न अगले वलवले हैं और न वो अरमाँ की भीड़
सिर्फ़ मिट जाने की इक हसरत दिल-ए-‘बिस्मिल’ में है

As per Rekhta.com, this ghazal is by Bismil Azimabadi, and researchers have found that it is present in his collection ‘Hikaayat e Hasti’. Hikayat means – story, tale, narrative, narration, fable, anecdote. All those things. Rekhta.com has also explained the reason of this ghazal being wrongly attributed to Ram Prasad Bismil, is the tradition that when Ram Prasad Bismil was being hanged, the “matla’a” of this ghazal was recited by him.

This legend also explains why this ghazal and ‘mera rang de basanti’ are invariably included in all films made on Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

I found these versions of this song already posted in the blog:

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai Shaheed (1965)
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai Shaheed e Azam Bhagat Singh (1954)

Incidentally, both versions are sung by Rafi Sahab, one being group song.

I remember, there is a recitation in “Rang de Basanti” (2006) too. So, these two songs really go hand in hand. This movie was not on Bhagat Singh, even so.

The word Sarfarosh means ‘one who is ready to die for a good cause’, jaannisar or jaanbaaz. This persian origin word’s impact is such, with less than 30% population who can speak and understand Urdu, there are four movies with this word, Sarfarosh 1964, Sarfarosh 1985, Sarfarosh-e-hind 1999 and Sarfarosh in 1999.

This style of poetry is known as Inquilabi shayari. Content and substance will matter in all eras. However much technological advancement, we are seeing at present could not have happened without human intellect, which created the problems, analysed them and solved them. Now those same solutions are in the process of reformation and refurbishment. Strong content with truthful intent will survive for centuries, mere laffazi will not.

So this is also the USP of Urdu language in the present era, with its relatability, with its small vocabulary, with scope for borrowing from its parental, friends, neighbours, relative languages, without really requiring expansion of its dictionary. Ha! what am I saying? This is truly debatable. I am prone to passing sentences, without corroborating them with any scientific, analytic proven facts.

As we celebrate 74th Republic Day today, we must accept, it’s the substantial literary output presented by the authors, writers and poets of the region, for centuries, which has survived the test of time. It was the combined intellect of the constitutional committee, with its 100s of members, which has given us the constitution. There was no, ‘one size fits all’ solution in front of these men and women. They had the ‘tehzeeb’ and ‘rivaayat’ of different schools of intellectual and religious thoughts that have prospered in our region and elsewhere and shaped it. And they managed to create a workable system, which has served us for better part of the century.

I sometimes wonder, if the constitution can be called a work of fiction or non-fiction. It is something that the Parliament must implement and the courts of law must uphold. I am confused, between implemented and not implemented, upheld, and not upheld constitutional rights.

Enough of my musings, will move on to the song.

I am presenting yet another Rafi version of ‘sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai’. This one is from ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh (1963) composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram. The lyrics are credited to Ram Prasad Bismil, in this instance. The film is exactly 60 year old in 2023, so it of retirement age.

These 2 songs from this fil are already posted:-

Song Date of post
Hain abhi aur ae dil tere imtihaan 23 March 2012
Chadh ke sooli Bharat maa de jis ne kasht nivaare 23 March 2022

And this is by no means the end of ‘Sarfaroshi ki tamanna’ as far as hindi film songs are concerned. There are more songs remaining to be covered.

sarfaroshi ki tamanna
ab hamaare dil mein hai

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (A Tribute to Poet/Lyricist ‘Neeraj’)
——————————————-——————————

Today 4th January is the ninety eighth birth anniversary of Poet-Lyricist Gopaldas Saxena whom we know mononymously by the name of ‘Neeraj’.

He was born on 04th January’1925 and passed away on 19th July’2018.

On the occasion of his birth anniversary today as a tribute to him, I am presenting a song from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Aashiaana’.

“Aashiaana-1974” was directed by Saiyyad Hasan for ‘Dev Kala International, Bombay’.
It had Sunil Kumar, Neetu Singh, Harindranath Chattopadhyay, Ramesh Deo, Habiba Rehman, Khalid Almas, Safdar, Dunlop, Hyderabadi and others.
Jayshree T., Gajanan Jagirdar, Ratnamala, Suhail, and Roopesh Kumar had guest appearance in this movie.

This movie has three songs written by Neeraj and music for this movie was composed by Hari-Arjun.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Kaisi mehfil hai ye, kaisa melaa hai ye Mohd Rafi Being presented today
02 Main mera tera jogi Mohd Rafi
03 Pyaare pukaare singaar pukaare Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor 13.03.2020

This movie ‘Aashiaana-1974’ seems to be an obscure movie of its time. No video of the movie or the songs seems to be available as of now. However luckily the audio of the songs is available which has been uploaded by passionate music lovers.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and it is composed by Hari-Arjun.

One song from this movie has already been posted on the blog earlier on 13.03.2020. Today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Let us pay our tributes to the great Poet-Lyricist ‘Neeraj’ ji and listen to today’s song …

We have been introducing new movies on the blog at a fair rate. Somehow in this process our other objective of ‘Yippeeee’ing’ the movies closer to their final songs have taken a back seat. With this post we once again resume this activity and start taking such movies to ‘Yippeeee-land’.

One such movie waiting for its final song to be covered on the blog, since Feb’2022 (there might be movies pending before this also), is today’s movie ‘Aag Aur Daag’ of the year ‘1971’.

It has been over fifty years now since this movie was released.

Alphabetically ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ is the first movie of the decade 1971-1980. It was passed by Censor Board on 20.01.1971.
The first movie 0f ‘1971’, as per date of certification by censor board, is ‘Johar Mehmood In Hongkong’. It was passed by censor board on 04.01.1971.

Both these movies have been represented on the blog, and both are yet to be Yippeeee’ed 😊 We are going to say ‘Yippeeee’ to one today.

‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was directed by A. Salam for ‘Movie Temple, Bombay’. It was produced by Swarn Singh.

It had Joy Mukherji, Komal, Jayant, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Helen, Bhagwan, Sudhir, Zeb Rehman, Rajan Haksar, Shetty, Kundan, Shefali, Paro, Majnu, Roopali, Uma Dutt, Shabana, Rajrani, Darshan, Amar, Subhash, Shaloo, Sameena, Master Rodney, Sumeet, Bipin Khosla and others.

This movie was written by Charandas Shokh. Editing of this movie was done by R.V. Shrikhande.

This movie had six songs (including one two-part song) written by Noor Dewasi (one song) and S.H. Bihari (five songs, including one two-part song).

Music for ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was composed by N. Dutta.

Following is the list of songs in this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

(Tributes to Mohd Rafi and actor Om Prakash)
————————————————

Today’s post is to pay our tributes to the Legendary Singer Mohd Rafi who was born on this day 24th December in 1924 and passed away on 31st July’1980.

On this occasion I am presenting a song sung by him from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Maan Gaye Ustaad’.

On the screen this song is performed by actor Om Prakash.

That way this post also serves the purpose to pay our tributes to Om Prakash whose birth anniversary was on 19th December.
One of the finest character actors of Hindi Films Om Prakash was born on 19th December’1919 and passed away on 21st February’1998.

Today’s movie “Maan Gaye Ustaad-1981” was directed by Shibu Mitra for ‘Kapoor Films International, Bombay’.

It was produced by S.K. Kapoor.

It had Ashok Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Hema Malini, Ajit, Bindu, Amjad Khan, Pran, Chandrashekhar, Rajendra Nath, Sonia Sahni, Devyani Thakkar, Uttam Sodhi, Johny, Leena Das, Jazbel, Peeloo Wadia, Mohan Choti, Rajan Haksar, Rajan Kapoor, Shetty, Murad, Ghulam Hussain, Moolchand, Gurucharan, Bhola and others.
This movie also had child artistes Ravi Valecha and Baby Suparna.

Character actor Om Prakash made a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.06.1981.

“Maan Gaye Ustaad-1981” had seven songs, all written by Verma Malik. Music for this movie was composed by Sonik-Omi.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

Sr.No Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Mera ik sawaal hai … maan gaye ustaad Rafi, Dilraj Kaur, Chandrani Mukherjee 12.02.2018
02 Mujhpe bhi to daalo ek nazar Asha Bhonsle
03 Ek chhatri aur ham do Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 03.11.2012

We can see that three songs from this movie ‘Maan Gaye Ustaad’ have been posted on the blog so far. Though this movie has already completed its’ ten-year run on the blog it is yet to be covered with all its songs.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Incidentally all the three songs from this movie earlier were presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. On screen it is Om Prakash who lip-syncs this song ‘praising the lord’ and seeking his help for ‘change of heart’ for Amjad Khan. I guess so, since Amjad Khan is also shown driving a car with a child artist in the picturisation of this song.

Let us listen to this beautiful song now…

Hullo Atuldom

“Pyaar Hi Pyaar” – release date 17th October 1969- was directed by Bhappie Sonie and produced by Rajaram & Satish Wagle. It had music by Shankar-Jaikishan & Hasrat Jaipuri wrote most of the songs. Rajinder Krishan is credited with one song. The movie had a cast of Vyjayanthimala, Dharmendra, Manmohan, Mehmood, Helen, Dhumal, Madan Puri, D.K. Sapru, Sulochana -Latkar & Chatterjee, Raj Mehra AND PRAN. Plus there were some character artists who are familiar faces to all Hindi movie fans- like the rotund Moolchand, Robert (the Goan dancer who was a prominent face in dance numbers till 1989), even Shatrughan Sinha and Salim Khan (who later formed a duo with Javed Akhtar) were there in small roles.

It was a normal story where a police inspector on duty of finding a beautiful young woman’s father promptly falls in love with her. Then there are the regular complications that any Indian film with love story as theme would have. Vijay (Dharmendra) and Kavita (Vyjayanthimala) face complications in the form of Shyam Kumar (Manmohan) and Satish Raj (Pran, calling himself Ashok occasionally). So that is the background for the film
The film had six songs of which the blog has these four.

Song Date of post Remarks
Ham aa gaye phir dar kaahe ka 3 January 2009
Dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyaar hi pyaar 3 january 2009 (two songs from the same film! one after the other!)
Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun 5 January 2009
Tu mera main teri duniya jaley to jaley 12 September 2020 (post by Nahmji)

As we can see this film has debuted on the blog and is one of those films that are yet to be Yyippeeeed.

We are having the next song today on the occasion of Dharmendra’s birthday. He is turning 87 today. I know that there are enough fans of this smart (who was young at the time of this movie) old man among the followers of this blog. He still looks charming as was seen when he appeared on a satellite channel a few weeks back. We all know that he has been entertaining us since 1960. His last release was in 2020 in a Punjabi film “Jora -second chapter” and he was also seen in short film “Dream Catcher” in 2021. His sons and daughters (from his marriage to Hema Malini) are actors and his grandson Karan Deol (Sunny Deol’s son) has taken his first step into the filmworld a few years back.

Just to get an idea of the acting range of Dharam Paaji (he is addressed like this fondly) – “Yakeen”, “Satyakam”, “Pyaar Hi Pyaar”, “Khamoshi”, “Aaya Sawan Jhoom Ke” and “Aadmi Aur Insaan” were his releases of 1969.

The song is regular ched-chaad song. It has the hero complaining to the heroine and her friends and hindering them in their efforts to help the drowning Manmohan. It is the song that was written by Rajinder Krishan and sung with full gusto by Mohd Rafi .


Song-Abhi salaamat abhi hai zinda aap ka khidmatgaar (Pyaar Hi Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Hullo Atuldom

Indian films have seen many jodis (meaning duos) of writers, music directors, actors, actresses, hero-heroine etc. Something about these duos or pairs or jodis make them appealing in the minds of movie-watchers. Can we think of Dilip Kumar sans Madhubala, Raj Kapoor sans Nargis, Dharmendra sans Hema Malini, Amitabh Bachchan sans Shashi Kapoor or Vinod Khanna or Rishi Kapoor or many of the actresses that he was regularly paired with? Similarly we think of Salim Khan & Javed Akhtar in the same breath as also Husnlal-Bhagatram, Kalyanji- Anandji and Shankar- Jaikishan. What I have mentioned are pairs in Hindi films, I am sure there would have been & will be such pairs in films of other languages too and all of which were popular once upon a time & are still recalled fondly. When we speak of these pairs we cannot think of one without the other.

Shankar- Jaikishan is one entity as also Laxmikant- Pyarelal.

Shankar Singh Ram Singh Raghuwanshi was the older of the duo and was born on 15th October 1922. Jaikishan Dahyabhai Panchal was born on 4th November 1929. One played the tabla and learnt the art formally while the other was good at the harmonium. It is well known that the two met at office of a Gujarati movie director and developed a rapport which saw them work together at the Prithvi Theatre in Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called). Apart from following their musical pursuits they also played parts in plays staged at Prithvi. They paired up when Raj Kapoor assigned them the task of giving music for his “Barsaat” that released in 1949 and from there there was no looking back. They were a constant in all of Raj Kapoor’s films till 1970 when they gave award winning music to ‘Mera Naam Joker’. It is said that Raj Kapoor had a bank of tunes composed by this pair which he used in many of his subsequent movies but gave credit to the composers he had signed for that particular movie. Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi were the duos favourite playback singers but for them Mukesh was the voice for most of their songs filmed on Raj Kapoor and they patronized Manna Dey who sang many of their popular songs. They used Kishore Kumar for the iconic “zindagi ek safar hai suhana” They worked as a team with Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra but have popular songs with other lyricists too.

Today, on the occasion of Jaikishan’s birth anniversary we are revisiting the 1971 release “Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari”. It was said to be the remake of a 1968 released Telugu movie starring A. Nageshwara Rao- “Brahmachari”. I recall seeing the Hindi movie ages ago. On reading the synopsis of these movies I realized that I have seen this movie in Malayalam too as “Minnaram” (meaning Lighthouse/ Beacon) which came in 1994 with Mohanlal in the lead.

So “Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari” was the story of a young man (Jeetendra) who is an avowed Brahmachari (that means espoused celibacy). His collegemate likes him because of his good character. But circumstances lead to the lady entering the brahmachari’s home claiming to be his child’s mother and putting him in a spot. As the movie progresses misunderstandings created among the members of the brahmachari’s family are cleared and the identity of the real parents of the child is revealed.

The following two songs of the movie are present on the blog:

Blog post number Song Date of post
15120 Ye pyaar to milan hai 14 july 2019
15990 Aapke peechhe pad gayi main 24 october 2020

Here is the next. It is sung by Mohd. Rafi and has Jeetendra lip-syncing. It is written by Kiran Kalyani (never heard this name before). The song has a lovely prelude which is the signature of the S-J duo.

Today (15 August 2022) is the 76th Independence day for India.So India has completed 75 years of independence. I have seen 60 Independence days. It is the 15th Independence day for the blog. This constitutes a nice 5:4:1 ratio.

Only 15 years had passed since independence when I was born. The country was still ruled by its first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) and first President (Dr Rajendra Prasad). The country was still trying to find its feet. When I look back at the situation of India those days, India was in as bad shape as the most underdeveloped countries in Africa. The literacy rate was abysmal. Life expectancy was 32 years.

Here I present some important indices that India had in 1947. I have also provided figures for the same indices in 1962, 2008 and 2022. The change in values over the years have been quite remarkable.

Life expectancy in india in years
1947 1962 2008 2022
32 42 66 70

We can see that the life expectancy in India has become more than doubled from 32 years to 70 years.

Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
218 157 49 27

Infant mortality rate was quite alarming till a few decades ago. The figure of 27 deaths per 1000 live births is still unsatisfactory but it is a vast improvement from the figure of 1947.

Maternal mortality rate (per 100000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
2000 1000 212 103

The Maternal mortality rate had improved by nearly 20 times in 75 years.

Literacy rate in India in %
1947 1962 2008 2022
12 % 29 % 70 % 77%

India was among the most illiterate nations on earth. Today Indian literacy rate is quite high and that has enabled India to take rapid strides in economic activities that require skilled manpower, viz service sector and manufacturing sector.

Population of India in crores
1947 1962 2008 2022
34 cr 47 cr 121 cr 140 cr

Indian population had quadrupled in 75 years.

Human Development Index
1947 1962 2008 2022
NA NA 0.563 0.645

Human development index was devised in 1990. It consists of indices of health, education and standard of living. As health, education and standard of living improves, so does HDI.

Agriculture production in Million tonnes
1947 1962 2008 2022
50 Million Tonnes (50 % of GDP) 71 Million tonnes 216 million tonnes 316 Million tonnes (17%)

Population has quadrupled whereas food grain production had increased more than six times. It had happened while agriculture sector is now contributing less than 20 % of GDP,  while it was over 50 % of GDP in 1947.

GDP in billion $
1947 1962 2008 2022
24 42 1200 3200

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

GDP per capita in $
1947 1962 2008 2022
70 90 1000 2277

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

One can notice that India, despite its problems, including wrong policy decisions and adverse geo political circumstances, has come up a long way in last 75 years. Now India seems poised to take its rightful place among the nations of the world. It is a matter of time (three decades in my estimate) before India will join the list of advanced nations of the world.

There are lots of things that can be mentioned here, but the above tables give us clear idea about the progress that India has made in various areas.

On this occasion, here is a song from an unreleased movie called ‘Aaj Watan Ne Hamen Pukaara’ (1970). The movie was made under the banner of Sangam Productions, Bombay. That is all the information that is known about this movie.

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohinder Kaur.

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

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 76th independence day.

आ आ आ
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें

आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द

ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ

वो आज़ादी जिसकी खातिर
कल थे सर कटवाए
वो आज़ादी जिसकी खातिर
कल थे सर कटवाए
कितने मोती और जवाहर
काम वतन के आए
जलियाँवाला बाग में जो थे
खून की होली नहाये
ओ हो हो हो
हम में भी वो खून रवां है
दुश्मन को बतला दें
हो हो
हो हो
हम में भी वो खून रवां है
दुश्मन को बतला दें
दुश्मन को बतला दें

आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द

ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ

हक़ किसी का कोई दबाये
वो हरगिज़ इंसान नहीं
हक़ किसी का कोई दबाये
वो हरगिज़ इंसान नहीं
मानवता के दुशमन की
कोई इससे बड़ी पहचान नहीं
लोक राज से टक्कर लेना
इतना तो आसान नहीं
हो हो हो
आँख उठा कर जिसने देखा
उसकी आँख झुका दें
हो हो
हो हो
आँख उठा कर जिसने देखा
उसकी आँख झुका दें
उसकी आँख झुका दें

आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द

ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ

इन हाथों के मेहनत से
जो हमने डैम उसारे
इन हाथों के मेहनत से
जो हमने डैम उसारे
यही हमारे मंदिर मस्जिद
और गिरजे गुरुद्वारे
नए हिन्द के नए बने ये
तीर्थस्थान हमारे
हो हो हो ओ
आंच नहीं आने देंगे इन पर
चाहे जां गवां दें
हो हो ओ
हो हो ओ
आंच नहीं आने देंगे इन पर
चाहे जां गवां दें
चाहे जां गवां दें

आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द

ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ

दफ्तर में हम काम करें या
हम मशीन चलाएं
दफ्तर में हम काम करें या
हम मशीन चलाएं
खेतों में हम बोएं पसीना
और सोना उपजाएँ
सभी मोर्चे हैं मेहनत के
इन पर हम जुट जाएँ
हो हो ओ
सरहद पर जो जुटे हुये हैं
उनका हाथ बटा दें
हो हो ओ
हो हो ओ
सरहद पर जो जुटे हुये हैं
उनका हाथ बटा दें
उनका हाथ बटा दें

आज वतन ने हमें पुकारा
आओ अपना फर्ज़ निभा दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
अम्न पे जिसने हाथ उठाया
जुल्म की वो बुनियाद हिला दें
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
जय हिन्द जय हिन्द
