The 9th of June is the birthday of our beloved Arunkumar Deshmukhji, often fondly referred to as our in-house encyclopaedia. 🙂

Arunji, it takes me great pleasure to wish you a very happy birthday on this occasion – and I say this on behalf of all Atulites for whom you are a very special person.

Arunji, it would not be an exaggeration to say that ever since you got involved with this blog, it has gone to a totally different level altogether. When Atul started this blog in July 2008 (and I have been with it since then), his write-ups would describe the songs, the films and artistes to the best of his ability –  and, as always, Atul did a 100% sincere job of it (as he does even today).

But (and I am sure Atul will not mind my saying this), Atul’s knowledge (and mine too, for that matter) was nowhere close to being of the level required to make this blog anything like the treasure-house of information and trivia it has become today.

For that, credit has to go to truly knowledgeable people like you (and some others – I don’t need to take names, they know who they are). If this blog could sing, it would probably be singing to you, saying “Khuda jaane kaisi suhaani ghadi thi…meri zindagi mein huzoor aap aaye” (I’ve deliberately mixed two lines to construct this). 🙂

Arunji, thanks to your ever-insightful comments and posts, I feel my knowledge of Hindi films of yesteryear is much more enriched than it was before. You provide so much background information, not just on a film but on everyone involved with it, that it gives a completely different and comprehensive understanding of the subject under discussion.

Very importantly, for me at least, your inputs give me a sense of the times. If you’re talking about the 1930s or 1940s, the stories you narrate make me understand those times better. When you talk about Hyderabad under Nizam rule, it transports me to that period.

I will always have fond memories of how you took the trouble to dig out information to answer what I thought was an innocuous query about artistes who migrated to Pakistan post-partition. I’d put this query out there – and completely forgotten about it. About a year later, after doing a lot of research, you responded to me on e-mail with a reply. I can never forget that!

But that is how you are, Arunji. Not just thorough – also very thoughtful.

This is only one side of your nature. Apart from your tremendous knowledge (which is why we call you our in-house encyclopaedia :-)), your attitude towards life itself is something I admire a lot. You’re always looking at things positively, sharing jokes and other interesting snippets on life, participating as much as possible in everything.

Another thing I like a lot is that you don’t keep getting into “hamaare zamaane mein sab achha tha, aaj kal sab bekaar hai”  mode. 🙂 Whether a song is from 1930s or from 2017, you’re happy to appreciate it. Believe me, this is a very rare quality. 🙂

One of my fondest memories of recent years is that Bangalore gangout we had at Gajendraji’s place where finally the Bangalore gang got to meet you.

I could say a lot more, Arunji, but I will end this post here and move on to the song for today.

It is a light-hearted C Ramchandra composition – from a film I happen to have seen. (I’ve usually more comfortable posting songs from films that I have seen).

The film is ‘Kaarigar’ (1958). Starring Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy, it is about the travails of Ashok Kumar, a craftsman. His experiences looking for a job, how his wife copes with the situation, how he gets cheated, and so on.

As I close, once again wishing you a very happy birthday, Arunji. Can’t thank the blog enough for bringing us together into the Atulite family.

Song  – Boot Chappal Sandal, Mardaana Ya Zanaana (Kaarigar) (1958) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – C Ramchandra
Chorus

Lyrics

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

na thugee hai na chori
halaal ka hai dhandha
na bheekh maange baabu
na maange hum chanda
paalish karte pait bharte
paalish karte pait bharte
chhod ke oopar waale ko
nahin kisi se darte
dabiya burush salaamat
hai apna yahi taraana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana
boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

ragad ragad ke jooton ki
hum aise mael utaaren
nai naveli dulhaniya ko
jaise log sanwaare
ragad ragad ke jooton ki
hum aise mael utaaren
nai naveli dulhaniya ko
jaise log sanwaare
baat kahoon ik laala
hai joota tera saaf
lekin dil hai tera kaala
sachchi baat na maane
hai jhoothon ka zamaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

bhookh pet ko lagti jitni
utni karein kamaayi
kar nahin sakte bhalaa kisi ka
phir kyon karein buraai
bhookh pet ko lagti jitni
utni karein kamaayi
kar nahin sakte bhalaa kisi ka
phir kyon karein buraai
jooton ke daag hain dhote
aur taan ke lambi sote
saath na le ke jaaye
koi maal ya khazaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

boot chappal sandal
mardaana ya zanaana
hai sab ka ek ek aana
paalish hai ek ek aana

बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

ना ठग्गी है ना चोरी
हलाल का है धंधा
ना भीख मांगें बाबू
ना मांगें हम चंदा
पालिश करते पेट भरते
पालिश करते पेट भरते
छोड़ के ऊपर वाले को
नहीं किसी से डरते
डबिया बुरुश सलामत
है अपना यही तराना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

रगड़ रगड़ के जूतों की
हम ऐसी मैल उतारें
नई नवेली दुलहनीया को
जैसे लोग संवारें
रगड़ रगड़ के जूतों की
हम ऐसी मैल उतारें
नई नवेली दुलहनीया को
जैसे लोग संवारें
बात कहूँ इक लाला
है जूता तेरा साफ
लेकिन दिल है तेरा काला
सच्ची बात ना माने
है झूठों का ज़माना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

भूख पेट को लगती जितनी
उतनी करें कमाई
कर नहीं सकते भला किसी का
फिर क्यों करें बुराई
भूख पेट को लगती जितनी
उतनी करें कमाई
कर नहीं सकते भला किसी का
फिर क्यों करें बुराई
जूतों के दाग हैं धोते
और तान के लंबी सोते
साथ ना ले के जाये
कोई माल या खज़ाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना
बूट चप्पल सैंडल
मर्दाना या ज़नाना
है सबका एक एक आन्ना
पालिश है एक एक आन्ना

Another day, another milestone! Only the other day we were celebrating Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And now we have another milestone.

Some might say, this blog is beginning to deliver milestones like Virat Kohli or Ravichandran Ashwin do. 🙂
But who’s complaining? I, most certainly, am not! 🙂

Today is the 14th of November, celebrated in India as Children’s Day.

This is a day that is remembered to mark the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister and one of India’s Founding Fathers, Jawaharlal Nehru. Since he was considered to be particularly close to children, the day is celebrated as Children’s Day.

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Today, 29th September happens to be the 84th birth anniversary of Mehmood Ali commonly known as Mehmood. In a career spanning four decades he acted in around 300 films. I am not sure how many songs in these 300 films where picturised on him and how many Mehmood songs our blog has! We don’t have a separate category of songs on Mehmood, like we have for Johnny Walker. The songs of these two actors were always very special. But I am sure there will be enough songs to take us through a life time if we stick to posting one song on his birth anniversary and one on the anniversary of his passing away. Of course there is nobody to stop us from breaking this rule and sneaking in a few extras, right?
[Editor Note: Request is noted for a category of Mehmood songs. 🙂 ]

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 10
—————————————————–

[Note of Apology: This write up has been in the making since two nights, including the “telephonic interview”.  Apologies that I was not able to post it before midnight yesterday. But then the thought comes – it is still 19th July somewhere in the world. Ah yes, our Khyati Ben in Los Angeles, USA,  is still working through the 19th.  So in a ‘relative’ way, this post is still on time. A brief summary of the celebration events covered herein – seventh anniversary for the blog, 11,300th song posted, and the completion of the planned ‘Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs’ series. Read on.]

[Note of Apology 2: With due apologies to Atul ji, for having taken some liberties in narrating certain aspects of his household.  I am very sure the permission towards these liberties are/will be granted, even though the same has not yet been formally requested 😉 ]

Einstein has said, and he must have been quoted on this many million times by now, that ‘time is relative’. There are a variety of different explanations and discourses on this single statement, depending on the perspective or the branch of science or maths, or for that matter, any other subject, that one is considering. There is a very interesting anecdote connected with this statement. Once a newspaper reporter asked Einstein to explain in simple terms, what is the meaning of the phrase ‘time is relative’.  And Einstein, without going into any mathematical or philosophical explanations, gave the following response.  He said – consider the situation when someone is holding your feet to the fire.  In such a circumstance, a passage of even 5 seconds would seem as if an hour has passed. Then again, think of a situation, when you are sitting and talking ‘sweet nothings’ with your beloved.  Then, after an hour has passed, it would seem to you as if just maybe five minutes have gone by.  That is what makes time relative. 🙂
