Few months back (on 13th May 2016) there was a comment by Anekant ji on this song ‘laayi kahaan hai zindagi’ (Taxie-Taxie 1977). Reading the title ‘laayi kahaan hai zindagi’ of his song post reminded me of a Kishore Kumar song – ‘toone hame kya diya ree zindagi’.

I often gets confused in recognising the voice of Meena Kapoor while listening to mp3 clips of her rare songs and the reason is that I find her voice closely resembling that of Geeta Dutt. I feel that, in a way, Meena Kapoor is to Geeta Dutt what Suman Kalyanpur is to Lata Mangeshkar. I can understand as to why Suman Kalyanpur lagged behind Lata Mangeshkar in terms of playback singing assignments as, among other reasons, the latter had already established her footprint in Bollywood when Suman Kalyanpur entered some time in 1954. But why did Meena Kapoor not get as many assignments as a playback singer as Geeta Dutt got when both started their playback singing at the same time?

Today, the 16th January, 2016 is the 90th birth anniversary of rhythm and melody king O P Nayyar. Based on his interviews, the musical career and the song compositions which are well known to most of the readers of the Blog, I may say that he was an unique personality in the sphere of Hindi film music. Some of the events in his life listed below give me that impression.

Mukesh and his Composers – 6
————————————
Jaidev ! The very name brings to mind some of the most beautiful and melodious creations in our film industry. Sadly, barring a few, the films for which he composed music did not fare well at the box-office. In spite of being a three time national award winner, luck and good fortune eluded him till the very last days of his life in terms of fame, money, happiness, health, marriage and a settled life.

Hullo to all in Atuldom.

So we have now reached 11200 songs on the blog. I remember there were various things happening, same time last year. We were on our road to 10000. We were having a series running which was introducing each and every contributor of the blog. The most silent character in our Atuldom (as far as sending contributions to the blog in the form of posts or write-ups) has reached 900. Wow!

Making movies is a business venture, and that too a risky business venture where there is no assurance of earning a profit on one’s investment. In movie making, the producer typically raises the finances, gigns up director, technicians, artists etc and makes a film. Later he gets the movie released in theatres. If he is lucky, the movie may do well, but in most cases the movie may fail to attract movie wathers and the investment made in making that movie goes down the drain.

Troika of the Blog’s latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore Kumar : 3. Kishore Kumar
—————————————————————————————————

After reading a vast repository of information available on the internet as well as in the books, I am pretty certain about the personalities of Mukesh, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle etc. But I am not so sure about what sort of person Kishore Kumar was. He was branded as eccentric, unpredictable, money minded, stingy etc etc. In a rare interview conducted by Lata Mangeshkar about a couple of years before his death in 1987, he had revealed that he donned the mask of eccentricity and unpredictable behaviour just for those persons whom he disliked and did not wish to be associated with. But how can one explain his eccentric behaviour even with his elder brother Ashok Kumar and his family members whom he respected a lot ? (In this context, there is a story narrated by Ashok Kumar’s daughter, Preeti Ganguly which I will skip here. (Those interested may read it here).

Before today, I had only heard the name. Poring through the lists of artists, one comes across so many names, and so many times, one just skips over and goes ahead.

Today, I heard his voice for the first time. And simply fell in love with it. It started with this song, and then in search of this voice, I went over the online resources, and got a chance to hear more of his songs, most of them in chaste Punjabi.  And I am thinking, what misfortune that I never got introduced to this voice earlier.
