When the previous instalment in this series was posted, I had started it with the word ‘Goodness’. It was because that post came in after a gap of 5 months from the one previous to it. Now I am thinking what word to use – this instalment is now coming in almost 17 (seventeen) months from the previous post. Maybe you would say, the less said the better. 😉

Today’s song is from film Khazanchi-58. It is a very interesting and foot tapping song by Asha Bhonsle-The Inimitable.

For senior readers of this Blog, the name Khazanchi may ring a bell and they may remember the iconic film Khazanchi of the 1941, made by Pancholis in Lahore. That film had changed the HFM for ever and freed it from the rut of Theatrical, classical, boring songs, which actually sounded the same despite being from different films !

Quiz time. What is the result of the marriage of an exceptional script writer- lyricist- poet with another script and story writer who was also a child star to add? And what happens if one adds a small amount of talented step mother whose own family is full of literary giants?

It is somewhat like the train approaching a station. I am very sure, all of us have had this experience, whenever we have gone to receive some body at the railway station, or gone to the station to start a train journey. There is a whole variety of actions and emotions we associate with this event. These days, the availability of mobile phones has made communicating much easier. But earlier it used to be different. One would start calling up the railway enquiry at least one hour before the expected arrival time. Connecting with that number and getting information used to be a trying task in itself. Then based on the information so received, one would plan to go to the station, depending on the distance. And we are all familiar with the pedantic and meticulous souls who would start this enquiry many hours in advance.

Recently I have requested Sudhir Sir to find a rare Rafi song for me. It is a song which actually brought me to to this blog. It is a non-film song which nobody seems to know anything about. Three years ago I was desperately searching for the full lyrics of this prayer poem ‘Khud jiyo auron ko bhi jeene do’. I searched extensively on the net but could not find the full lyrics. I had no inkling at that time that Rafi sahab had sung this song. But some site (I do not remember which one) had this information that this prayer/poem was by Rafi sahab and it was picturized in a film by Films Division of India, where none other than Prithvi Raj Kapoor is singing it in front of a classroom. There after I searched for it high and dry,but the result was always zilch. Now I have no way of verifying if the information about the song is strictly correct or not. But it was a start and unfortunately also the end of it. All this time this thing has always been in the back of my mind, which comes to fore from time to time. Like it did the other day when I made that request to Sudhir Sir.

HAM LOG (1951) was a typical Zia Sarhadi film highlighting the social issues in keeping with the socialistic ideology followed by Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA). The film was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. In this film, social issues were raised that arose out of the difficulties faced by a poor family of Lalaji Harcharandas (Kanhaiyalal) and his wife (Durga Khote), unemployed son Raj (Balraj Sahani), a sickly daughter Paro (Nutan) and a school going son (Master Ratan). The problem is further accentuated by the arrest of Lalaji for allegedly stealing money from his employer for which he is sent to prison.
