GEMS FROM THE MIGRATORS…..song no.10…LAST SONG OF THE SERIES.
——————————————————————-

After Partition in 1947, it did not take long for things to become normal in the Indian film industry. This was mainly because ready replacements were available in plenty to fill the vacancies caused by migration. As far as producers and financers were concerned, almost all producers and film makers had arrived here from Lahore. It was actually Lahore which felt the absence of Film makers. Pakistan film Industry was somehow managed well by the experienced people who went from India and Pakistan enjoyed a ” GOLDEN AGE OF FILMS AND MUSIC ” from 1959 to 1977. Once the old generation retired, there was no second line to take over from them.

GEMS FROM THE MIGRATORS…..song no. 9
———————————————-

When we talk of Partition and Migration of artistes from one country to another, only the famous and the well known names are taken. There were hundreds of small time actors, directors, lyricists, composers, instrument players, chorus singers, technicians etc who were not known to many and also had migrated for various reasons. The other day I was reading a book, ” Who’s who: Music in Pakistan ” written by A.Shaikh and M.Shaikh. In this book I found several names of singers, composers, lyricists and above all instrument players, who shifted to Pakistan.

GEMS FROM THE MIGRATORS…….song no. 8
———————————————

After Partition, there was a rush to migrate to Pakistan and artists continued to shift there from 47 to almost 1950. Some artistes like Noorjehan left immediately. There were few cases where some people borrowed money from friends and then left the country quietly, leaving the money lender high and dry. By about 49-50, almost everything was settled on both sides. The conditions in Lahore and Karachi had stabilised considerably for film making and lots of opportunities existed for film artistes there by mid 50s. That led to a second wave of migration to Pakistan at that time. Those who had continued in India completed their assignments here and went to Pakistan.

Few days back, I got an idea, why not make an Index of personalities and topics that I have discussed on this Blog through my posts in last 3-4 years. This would help me as the readers to get the desired information at a click. Very enthusiastically and patting myself for this original idea, I started the work and then I realised that this was a mammoth project requiring lot of time and patience !

GEMS FROM THE MIGRATORS….Song No. 6
—————————————-

After Partition, the film industry in Pakistan was at its lowest ebb. Main reason was that most of the film activities were taking place only in one place-Lahore. During the riots, most studios were either burnt or damaged and there was a shortage of Financers, Distributors and technical staff. Composers who migrated from here to there had got accustomed to working in an organised sector and in Pakistan almost everything was in a mess. It is to the credit of few dedicated people in Lahore that by 1948 the first film, entirely made in Pakistan, with the entire crew from within the country, rolled out successfully. Despite lack of facilities, talented composers created inspired music and most composers succeeded there.

So far, I have done 16 series here. This is the 17th series. Writing for a series is not an easy job.It not only requires lot of spade work,but also requires a continuous flow,avoiding a long gap between 2 posts, lest the tempo is lost. When I start a series, I am always in lot of tension till it is completed successfully. Every series is a new beginning for me. In spite of all this (and the ensuing allegations of ” neglect ” from the family ) I enjoy doing this work. There are many Blogs on internet which do posts on theme like ” Cycle songs”, Motor songs” or Sawan songs etc. I have always felt that Atul ji’s Blog is not an ordinary one and it must have real specially made exclusive topics for series I could do these posts,because Atul ji has always helped me with the Lyrics and has encouraged me always. Thanks Atul ji.

When I decided to start this series and my first post appeared here, I had anticipated that there will be several comments from learned readers, who were more knowledgeable than me about the details of Partition and the artistes involved. True to my guess there were many comments on my Fb page immediately. Comments were from people like Ummer Siddique ji, Khawaja Irfan Anwar ji and Dr.Surjit Singh ji. Ummer Siddique ji runs the famous Blog CINEPLOT.

When I was planning this series about composers who opted for Pakistan,I was wondering,why must have people prepared to shift to unknown locations,when obviously there was so much opportunity here in India ?

Pakistan and India are two hostile neighbours in the South Asian Region, who vie with each other in a few fields. A great deal of excitement gets generated on either side of the border whenever the national teams to the two countries face off in cricket (these days) and Hockey (in the past).
