In my previous article on the song “Kat Gayi Waadon Mein“, I have talked about Mulkhraj Bhakri, writer, producer and lyricist from the Lahore film industry, who became one of the many victims of the country’s partition in 1947 . In Bombay (Mumbai), due to his hard work, he regained his position in the Hindi film industry. 

In this article, I propose to talk about one more victim of partition who was born with a silver spoon in a Gujarati family settled in Karachi and actively connected with the Lahore film industry in the 1940s. I am not talking about Dalsukh M Pancholi but director, Ravindra Dave who happened to be his nephew. Let me unfold Ravindra Dave’s story.

Most of of the present generation of music lovers may not remember Shiv Dayal Batish ( S D Batish), the classical musician, vocalist, playback singer and music director. During his filmy career in 40s and 50s, he composed music for 19 films (including 2 films with his pseudo name of Nirmal Kumar) and sang about 100 songs. His music compositions for Hindi films are generally labelled as Lahore style of Hindi film music which was used by Lahore based music directors like Pandit Amarnath, Pandit Govindram, Master Ghulam Haider, Shyam Sundar, Khurshid Anwar etc. S D Batish was the cousin of other Batish brothers – Pandit Amarnath, Husnlal and Bhagatram. It is said that originally, the family surname was ‘Vats’ ( or Wats) which became ‘Vatish’ and then to ‘Batish’.

I have mentioned it that I know very little about the movies and actors that came before late 1940s. For instance, I have very little knowledge about this movie called “Daasi” (1944). As the name of the movie suggests, this movie has to be about a woman suffering at the hand of her husband. But that is all the knowledge I have. Then I have the songs of this movie to go by.
