Hearty greetings to all friends and readers on the celebration of the Raksha Bandhan festival today.

Ok, ok, I know the query springing in your mind. No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth. Very much here, reassuringly. Just that the cycles of fate brought in significant distractions and preoccupation for both Atul ji and myself, at the same time. The postings are just a trickle these days. But things on the personal and work fronts are keeping both of us away. Atul ji has been maintaining the trickle, whereas I have not been able to get anything on to the blog for days on end now. Long stories are often uninteresting, so I will cut it short, and say that days of drought are coming to a close. How soon, you may want to know. Pretty soon, I assure you. 😉 Hopeful to see more activity moving forward, and then we should be back to our regular output shortly.

“Naya Kanoon” (1965) was a movie with a different story line. Most movie goers of the time were not mature to appreciate such movies and as such the movie failed at the box office. Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, has to say about this movie:

Unlike the previous five Rakhi festivals that this blog has seen, the date of the festival this year has been in some doubt. Some people believe that it is today (viz 20 august 2013), while others feel that it is on 21 august 2013. And that leaves me in a dilemma as to when to discuss the Rakhi songs on this occasion.

Today (2 august 2012) is the festival of Raakhi. Like most Indian festivals, this date of the festival depends of the Indian Saka calender rather than on the Gregorian calender. As a result, this festival falls on different dates on different years for people familar with the Gregorian calender.

Greetings and best wishes to all readers for the festival of Raksha Bandhan today.

This song is from the 1985 film ‘Ghar Dwaar’. The film is produced by Mohan ji Prasad and SK Jain, and is directed by Kalptaru. The star cast of this film is impressive and includes Shriram Lagoo, Tanuja, Sachin, Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Kadar Khan, Ashok Saraf, Ashalata etc. The music for this film is composed by Chitragupt. Checking through the available articles on Chitragupt ji, he passed away in 1991. This film could well be one of the last films that he composed for. I am unable to locate the name of the lyricist, and would request other knowledgeable readers to please add this information.
