Ganpati Bappa Morya
Pudcha Varshi Lavkar Ya

Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha. It falls on the Shukla Chaturthi (4th day after Amavasya) in the month of Bhadrapada of the Hindu calendar i.e. August-September of the Gregorian calendar. Now this is common to the whole of India. And everyone has their own list of prasad that they offer to the lord. And all the panchang reading elders will tell us that when the Chaturthi starts etc and for how many days the festival will be for (usually 10) but due to the lunar calendar that is followed there will be some ghatika calculations which will determine if the festival ends on the 10th or 11th day.

But thanks to Bal Gangadhar Tilak Maharashtra has a special way of celebrating it. There the devout bring home idols and do pooja for a day and half and give a send-off to their favourite god on the next day that is on Panchmi. Then there are also those who keep the lord in their homes for five days. In between they also have a Gauri sthapana and worship the mother and son together for 2 days and then see them off on the 5th day. That day is Gauri visarjan.

Then there are the Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals. It is here that the youth get to show their ideas of decoration, event organisation etc. The mandals dedicate themselves to various causes and highlight this in their pandals. There is the usual bhajans playing through the 10 days of the festival etc. Then on the 10th day that means Anant Chaturdashi day there is the aarathi, the final pooja and then the idols along with all the flowers used for decoration etc are taken for immersion. The large ones are on open trucks and we have all the young revellers dancing to the beat of Nashik Dhols and recorded music and the cry of GANAPATI Bappa Morya filling the air space. (Environmentalists will call it high decibels of noise pollution). And there are the large numbers of people out on the streets till wee hours of the next morning waiting to see the last huge one immerse in the sea. If I am not wrong the last one is always Lalbaugcha Raja.

Lalbaug is a locality in the old Bombay region. This is where during the freedom struggle Balgangadhar Tilak had started the practice of community worship of the Lord as a way to protest the diktat of limit on number of people congregating.

Lalbaugcha Raja has a story of its own. It seems the market at Peru Chawl was shut down in 1932 effecting the livelihood of the fisherfolk and other vendors who operated from there. These vendors vowed to Ganesha for a permanent place for their market. The collective efforts of the councillors and prominent local residents of those times the landlord Rajabai Tayyabji gave the land for the existing Lalbaug Market.

In 1934 as a thanksgiving or fulfilment of their vow (Navasa in Marathi) the traders and fisherfolk came together to start this sarvajanik pandal. Since 1935 the same family -Kambli family- has been designing the idol which has kept nearly the same “sitting pose” over the years. The idol is always around 18-20 feet tall. The parts are made at their workshop in the adjoining lane and assembled in the pandal. The grand old man of the Kambli family then comes and paints the lord’s eyes. The decoration is always contemporary and this year it was “Chandrayaan”. The visarjan procession of Lalbaugcha Raja is eagerly awaited through the lanes that it takes to reach Girgaum Chowpatty. There are special trucks, trailers and boats with pulleys that help take the idol kilometres into the sea so that it can be given a proper deep-sea immersion to match its size.

P.S.: the details about Lalbaugcha Raja are from a documentary that I saw last week on National Geography Channel.

We had the N. Chandra’s “Ankush” (1986) which used the Ganesh visarjan backdrop to show the rivalry between two Ganesh pandals and how it erupts into street fight.

In Remo D’Souza’s “ABCD- Any Body Can Dance” (2013) we had a sequence showing Ganesh Visarjan. There was this wonderful dance number and the song was true to the Ganapati Bappa Morya spirit. The movie had a collection of dance freaks who were essentially a part of Remo’s troupe most of who are independent choreographers now. in addition we have Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya, in major roles in the movie, present in this song.

I thought that this song is ideal for today. The song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan & Vishal Dadlani. The song is written by one Mayur Puri and Sachin-Jigar are the music directors. This means that this song would have qualified in the series of “Music Director singing for another music director list” that we had from Arunkumar Deshmukhji a few years back. (Both Shankar Mahadevan and Vishal Dadlani are music directors as we all know).

This is the link to the song:-

hullo to all of Atuldom

Yesterday (13 august 2019) was the birth anniversary of our dear Sridevi, hailed as the first female superstar of Bollywood. I was not liking it that we had let it go without a post. Then last thing before I switched off for the day, I saw a song on some satellite channel and had my ‘eureka’ moment. I found a song from the later period of Sridevi’s career when she had started experimenting with the characters she played.

The song was from the 1997 Raj Kanwar directed and Boney Kapoor produced “Judaai”. The movie starred Sridevi alongside Urmila Matondkar and Anil Kapoor with Kadar Khan, Johnny Lever, Farida Jalal, Upasana Singh, Junior Mehmood, Paresh Rawal, Dinesh Hingoo, Saeed Jaffrey and two sweet child actors. Poonam Dhillon had a special appearance. The movie was a remake of a 1994 Telugu film “Shubhalagnam”.

It was a story of a lady Kajal (Sridevi) who gets her honest and loving husband (Anil Kapoor) married to his boss’s niece (Urmila) in exchange for money in her quest to become rich quickly. She gets this done much against her husband’s wishes and she faces social problems when she realises that it is not possible to remain your ex-husband’s legal wife after having divorced him and practically sold him to another lady. The film received mixed reviews for its simple and clichéd plot and execution. But the performances of the lead actresses were appreciated. This was Sridevi’s last film appearance before she took a sabbatical to lead a family life. Sridevi and Johnny Lever played the children of Kadar Khan and Farida Jalal.

Incidentally today happens to be the 62nd birthday of Johnny Lever. He was brought up as John Prakash Rao Janumala. He had to drop out of studies as his family faced financial problems and he pithed in by doing odd jobs including selling pens on the streets by mimicking Bollywood stars etc. At a program in his father’s plant (Hindustan Lever Limited) he mimicked some senior officers and the workers there gave him his stage name JOHNNY LEVER. He started out his career doing stage shows Kalyanji Anandji Nite, Tabassum Hit Parade etc which served as his launchpad. He has been entertaining the world since the 80s. His daughter Jamie is following in his footsteps and is a comedian-actor-singer. Here is wishing him a long and healthy life.

Todays’ song is sung by Bali Brahmabhatt, Alka Yagnik and Shankar Mahadevan. Nadeem Shravan are the music composers and Sameer was the lyricist. It is a party song that celebrates the birthday of Sridevi’s character’s daughter. We have Upasana Singh, Kadar Khan, Sridevi, Urmila and Anil Kapoor singing and Junior Mehmood is also there in the scene.

So, here is a song which sings the mind of most males of the species. I am not judging anybody. 🙂 my statement is based on all the husband-wife jokes that are constant on the various social media forums. 🙂


Song-Shaadi kar ke phans gaya yaar (Judaai)(1997) Singers-Bali Brahmbhatt, Alka Yagnik,Shankar Mahadewan, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

This is the story of a Telugu man born in Hyderabad in an upper middle-class Naidu family. He completes his schooling in a Boarding school in Yercaud. After graduating in Chemical Engineering from Osmania University, he proceeds to USA and completes M.S. in Chemical Engineering. He gets a good job in the USA as an Environment Consultant. So far so good. The boy has met successfully, the sequential schedules of most of the middle and upper middle-class families – Good schooling and college, higher studies in the USA followed by a good job there. The next in the sequence is finding a good bride for the boy to settle down and showcase him among the family and friends. But at this stage, there a break in the sequence of our Telugu man.

During his stay of about a decade in the USA, our man develops interest in film-making. Perhaps, he was influenced by watching many Hollywood films during his stay in the USA. Slowly, this interest turns into a passion. Now, he finds his job monotonous. One day, he resigns from the job and enroll himself in film making and acting courses. Armed with the story, screen-play and dialogues for his film, he returns to India. He selects himself as the actor who is the protagonist in the story of his first film in the making. He finalises a couple of other actors and actresses who are fresh faces. But his first obstacle in making the film is finding a financier who can invest money in his film.

Our man spends about a year in Mumbai for studying the nuances of film making and also finding a financier. He is disillusioned by the way Bollywood works. He also fails to find a financier for the film. He comes to the conclusion that if he wants to make a film on his own terms, he needs to finance the film himself. So, he goes back to the USA, works there for about a year and saves US$40000/-. With this money, he returns to India for good. In his earlier visit to Hyderabad, he had met a lady who is the boutique fashion shop owner. After audition, he ropes her in the film as an actor and makes her the partner in his film production company. The film’s shooting commences and is completed in 17 days at the total cost of about 17 lakhs. The film is submitted to the Censor Board for certification. And here our man faces the second hurdle.

The Censor Board suggests about two dozen of cuts including a kissing scene to certify the film. Our man visits to meet the Censor Board officials. He finds that if he agrees to the cuts suggested by the Censor Board, the entire sensibility of the film is lost. On the other hand, Censor Board is not prepared to certify the film without the cuts suggested by it. He files an appeal to the Appellate Authority of the Censor Board for the review of the cuts. The Appellate Authority upholds the views of our man. The film is certified without any cut but a couple of words in the dialogues are muted. Now the film is ready for the release. Here our man faces the third obstacle.

The film remains in the cans for nearly a year as no distributor is willing to take up to release the film. First, the film is in English language. Second, the film maker is an unknown entity to the film world apart from the absence of star value in the film’s cast. Third, the film’s story would have attracted only a section of the audience. In desperation, our young man releases the film on Doordarshan in 1997 on a paltry sum of Rs.2 lakh. But this gave the film some exposure to the English-speaking audience.

In the meanwhile, the film is shown in MAMI film festival in Mumbai sometime early 1998 and receives encouraging responses from the festival audience including Shyam Bengal. On the recommendation of Shyam Bengal, one of the leading film distributors of Mumbai watches the film in a preview theater and agrees to distribute the film. The film is released and receives tremendous support from the audience as well as from the critics. The film is a box office success. A new name of the producer-director is added to the list of parallel film-makers in India.

The young Telugu man is Nagesh Kukunoor and his maiden film is ‘Hyderabad Blues’ (1998). The owner of the boutique shop is Elahe Hiptoola who became the partner in Nagesh’s film production company, SIC, besides acting in some of his films and assisting him in the direction. The film revolves around a NRI who after spending a considerable time in the USA, is caught in a cross fire of Indian and foreign cultures. The film was in English language though a few dialogues were in Telugu and Hyderabadi Hindi.

After the success of ‘Hyderabad Blues’ (1998), Nagesh Kukunoor has produced and directed films such as ‘Rockford’ (1999), ‘Bollywood Calling’(2001), ‘3 Deewaaren’ (2003), ‘Hyderabad Blues-2’ (2004), ‘Iqbal’ (2005), ‘Dor’ (2006), ‘Bombay To Bangkok’ (2008), ‘8×10 Tasveer’ (2009), ‘Aashaayein’ (2010), ‘Mod’ (2011), ‘Lakshmi’ (2014), ‘Dhanak’ (2016) etc. Although many of his films have been critically acclaimed, some of which got national and international awards, most of them had failed at the box office collections.

Nagesh Kukunoor also tried his hand in producing and directing a couple of the ‘middle of the path’ films by taking Bollywood stars. In ‘8×10 Tasveer’ (2009), he got Akshya Kumar to play the lead role. In ‘Aashaayein’ (2010), he roped in John Abraham. Both these films did not fare well at the box office. So he has reverted to parallel cinemas again.

‘Rockford’ (1999) was Nagesh Kukunoor’s second film in English which revolved around the story about ‘coming of age’ boy who is admitted to a boarding school. Film shows his transformation from a naive, scared boy into a confident teenager after facing some problems in adjusting to new environment. There is a scene in the film in which he develops a soft corner for the only lady teacher (Nandita Das) in the school. His day-dreaming about singing ‘shokhiyon mein ghola jaaye…’ from ‘Prem Pujaari’ (1970) with the lady teacher is hilarious. He then finds her sitting with PT teacher (Nagesh Kukunoor). Now his imagination takes him to Nagesh Kukunoor singing with the teacher. He becomes jealous. Watch the video.

‘Rockford’ (1999) have six songs of which 2 songs are in Hindi. The song ‘yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai’ sung by KK is from his non-film album which is used in the film. The other Hindi song which I am presenting today is ‘aasmaan ke paar shaayad aur koi aasmaan hoga’ is rendered by Shankar Mahadevan who has also composed the music with his music partners, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendoca.

This song in CD version is of 6-minute duration. However, in the film, this song is used only for 1:35 minutes in the background of the main credit titles at the beginning of the film probably to set the mood of the film. A promotional video featuring Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and the three actors in the role of students in the film, namely, Rohan Dey, Imran Mirza and Kailash Athmanathan was also released. The theme of the music video is a trip to the down memory lane. Shankar Mahadevan, in his interview at the time of the release of this music video had revealed that he had composed this song in Raag Jog in combination with Raag Kedar. What a violin interlude between 2:51 and 3:22 in the audio clip in Carnatic music style!

There was no need for me to search as to who wrote lyrics for this song. A reading of the mukhda of the song with unusual imageries undoubtedly pointed to Gulzar. Yes, the lyrics are by Gulzar saab.

baadalon ke parbaton par
koi baarish ka makaan hoga

I like it.

Acknowledgement : The ‘story’ of Nagesh Kukunoor is based on a number of interviews he gave on visual and print media over the years.

Blog Day :

4023 Post No. : 15136

[Ed Note: With sincere apologies to the author and the readers. This write up was delivered to the editors much in advance of the blog anniversary date. It is our oversight that we missed posting it on 19th July. The lapse is regretted.]

As the blog turns 11 today, we can celebrate the first step in the double digit age milestone.  Numerilogically, 11 means 1+1=2 . Does this mean second stage of second phase ?  Or 11 simply means gyarah number ki bus.  Mumbaikar’s know that gyarah number bus means ‘to walk on two feet’.  Walking walking we have reached the 15000 plus figuratively.

So. . . its “Chalte Chalte Mere Ye Geet Yaad Rrakhna. . .  Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . . Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . .

Flashback related to this song. . .  My first day in college :

Coming from a girls only Urdu medium school, trepidation crowding the mind, how will I fit in and all that.  Admission was done, fees paid whether I wanted to study Commerce or not, it was a done deal.  Backtracking from a path already taken was a no no… in the family.   It was a good reputed college of Mumbai, my elder sister was happy that at least I got a good college bit more away from the usual Urdu medium crowd, than she had managed.  She had changed streams from Science (which she was very keen to do) to Commerce, at the last moment, just to avoid going to a college (not so good) which was very close to home and right next to the school.

Nobody in the family expected me to do well in Xth as my math was very week.  In the surprised euphoria of me doing well in SSC, the decision was taken to try for the good college, a little away from the residence, involving commute by bus. My elder sister had a big hand in convincing the parents. So no 11 number ki bus for me, rather real BEST buses.

I remember the day of my admission. Two days after the SSC results my father took my elder sister and me to the college. After the procedure was completed, while going back home, my sister had a brain wave of watching a movie, to celebrate my admission to the college and also my 15th birthday. I have said in an earlier post that my elder sister has a great sense of occasion.  My father dropped us to the theatre, waited to get the tickets and left for his office.  The movie was ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1984) with Anita Raj and Raja Bundela.

So, first day of college @ 12 noon, the class started to fill up.  Some of us girls found each other, sat in a row separate from the boys.   Actually now what is known as a column, was a row in the class room. First period happened to be of English.

The lady lecturer asked all of us to introduce ourselves and talk about interests hobbies etc.  One of the boys said he like to sing and the lecturer having found a ‘bakra’ was no going to let go. So the boy ‘marta kya na karta’ sang this song in the class:

Chalte Chalte Mere Ye Geet Yaad Rrakhna. . .  Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . .

The song as it is, is unforgettable, and with it this event of my first day of college is attached. Our college consisted of a motley crowd of upper, middle and lower crusts’s girls and boys.  It had an ‘Urdu society’ with a Parsi Professor heading it and having its own notice board.  Yes, the notice board was a great source of prestige during those times 🙂 .

The present song post is an almost sufiana song, a critically acclaimed song from the 2006 film ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’.  Very unusual situation for a spectacular song, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.  There are three singers namely Shankar Mahadevan, Carlisa Monterio & Shafqat Amaanat Ali.  Javed Akhtar is one of the lyricists. There is a Wikipedia page dedicated to this song.  (I Wonder – do all songs have a page like this? )   Carlisa Monterio is the female singer who has penned the lines “Love Will Find A Way” as per the page on Wikipedia. I call this song almost sufiana, because it gives that feeling when one listens to the audio only.

It is picturized on Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee, who are married to Priety Zinta and Abhishek Bachchan respectively. The two are also seen planning their respective wedding anniversary celebration, while meeting up from time to time at spectacular locations in Philadalphia, USA. They are both unhappy with their spouses and are still trying to continue in those marriages. Movie characters are rather fickle, not usually seen to be serious about their commitments. No doubt that divorce is sometimes the only way out of an abusive / real bad marriage.  What is real bad and little bad, sort of can be worked at, is again relative. It is commendable that some civilized societies decided to reform and allow divorce as a permitted practice during 20th century. It was hailed as a step towards better rights for women.

Marriages and divorces in films are no mirror for realities. From what I have observed of bad marriages, one partner may be a major cause of discontent, but both partners suffer. Being the chief cause in a bad marriage doesn’t in anyway alleviate the personal sufferings. Parting ways in civilized manner should be a choice, but only if there is no way of reconciliation.

Also, because marriages are made in heaven, as human beings and social animals, we have a duty to safeguard this institution.  Husband and wife’s is the primary relationship on which family is based and develops as a unit, it is the root of the family tree.

So this is a celebratory song for the 11th anniversary of the blog, and song no. 2 of the Mitwa trilogy.  Ideally this would have been the 3rd and final song of the trilogy, but since the Anniversary is here, this song is the one I choose to post.

Happy anniversary to all my fellow travelers on the blog.

I hope to bring in a party mood with today’s post. We are celebrating something very important. We are wishing our leader good health, good times, good infrastructure in the form of uninterrupted power supply and good broadband facilities. We are also wishing that he never loses interest in adding new posts and finds for us hitherto unheard songs from rare movies and gives us rare combinations in terms of music directors, singers, actors etc. And I promise on behalf of fellow followers of the blog that we will not stop following the blog, keep sending new farmaishes (requests), and the regulars will also help you keep track of upcoming milestones, birthdays anniversaries etc.

I am sure I have the support of all Atulites in what I have promised our dear Atulji. So, let us all wish him a very Happy Birthday. May you relentlessly keep the blog moving. 🙂

The party song with this post is from Dharma Prorductions’ 2006 release ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ which was directed by Karan Johar and starred his friend and favourite Shahrukh Khan with Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Kiron Kher, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan with guest appearances by Arjun Rampal, Kajol and a few others. The movie had Shankar-Ehsaan- Loy for music directors and Javed Akhtar as the lyricist. Today’s song is in the voices of Shankar Mahadevan, Loy Mendonsa, Vasundhara Das and Shaan.

Happy Birthday Atulji!!! Lets party tonight.

Blog Day : 3974 Post No. : 15060

Welcome all to this post of today!!!

Today 5th June is the ‘World Environment Day’ which is celebrated all over the world on 5th June every year. Since 2017, we are trying to connect us with this celebration by posting a song on the blog which comes closer to the theme of the ‘World Environment Day’ of that year. Though, it is more or less difficult that we find any direct song relevant to the theme or subject, our endeavour here is to connect with those songs wherein we have ‘nature-connection’ in them or songs about nature symbols.

Nature, natural environment and nature symbols are very much an integral part of many of Hindi movie songs and where we attach ourselves with different types of feelings and emotions. Some of the greatest songs from Hindi movies comes from these types of songs too.

Also, I would like to mention here that off late we have some Hindi movies coming with the subjects related to pollution, climate change etc. and the general concern towards environment is being highlighted to make people more aware about the environmental related issues.

On the growing pollution and climate change I have written few lines ‘‘आबोहवा’ बदल गयी हैं! ( The ‘Climate’ is ‘changing’ ) six years back. I am reproducing below few lines from it;

फिजां कि बाहों में
अनगिनत जहरीलें ‘वायु’
आज घुल रहे
के हवा भी ‘रंग बदलने’ लगी हैं

This year’s environment day theme is Air Pollution#!!!

It will also be interesting to see how the yearly ‘themes’ of the ‘World Environment Day’ have been since its inception in 1974, and how due to the increasing pollution and effects of climate change we have reached a stage of ‘do or die’ and so the themes are also reflecting it like last year it was ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ and this year it is ‘Air Pollution’ and the call is to ‘Beat Air Pollution’.

‘Air’ (Vayu, Pawan, Hawaa) as we know is the source of life, we cannot breathe and be alive if there is no ‘air’. ‘Air’ like the other natural resources is ‘God’s gift’ to human kind. If we go the dictionary meaning of air it reads ‘the invisible gaseous substance surrounding the earth, a mixture mainly of oxygen and nitrogen’.  So, may be what we are connecting with in our Hindi movie songs is its various forms i.e. wind, breeze etc.

And though ‘air, wind, breeze’ might be invisible we have a very strong bond with it and in our HFM songs our poets/lyricists have taken liberties to establish a strong relationship with it.

So, we have Gulzar Saab in his own philosophical style saying ‘Hawaaon Pe Likh Do Hawaaon Ke Naam, Hum Anjaan Pardesiyon Ka Salaam’.

When we are in upbeat mood and we have the ‘air in our favour’ we even start imagining that the ‘air’ is ‘singing’ and awakening our dreams … ‘Jhukti Ghataa Gaati Hawaa Sapne Jagaaye’.

And I think that songs like ‘Hawaa Mein Udtaa Jaaye Mora Laal Dupatta Malmal Ka Ho Ji’, ‘Thhandi Hawaa Kaali Ghataa Aa Hi Gayi Jhoomke’, ‘Pawan Deewani’, should fall in this category. . .

Even the wind when it is blowing in its full glory can remind us of someone, someone close or beloved to us …‘Jhoomti Chali Hawaa Yaad Aa Gaya Koyi’

In our movies we have plenty of songs for lovers and of their feelings and emotions, even sometimes they share their secret to the ‘cold breeze’ and invite it to listen to their lovely talks J ‘Sun Ja Aa Thhandi Hawaa’ and also reminding it that it should not be disclosed to anyone other than them. . .

Or somebody separated from his or her beloved can vent his/her feelings in ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Hawaa Ye Hawaa, ‘In Hawaaon Mein In Fizaaon Mein etc.

Actually, for those who are in love we have many many songs for the lovers on either side (male, female 🙂 ), for all types of their moods and emotions depending on the circumstances they are in; ‘Hawaa Ke Saath Saath Ghataa Ke Sang Sang, ‘Sabaa Se Ye Keh Do Ke Kaliyaan Bichhaaye, ‘Thhandi Hawaaein Lehraa Ke Aayen, ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Nadi Ka Kinaara’, ‘Ye Raatein Ye Mausam Nadi Ka Kinaara Ye Chanchal Hawaa, ‘Ye Hawaa Ye Raat Ye Chaandni, ‘Balmaa Khuli Hawaa Mein, ‘Seeli Hawaa Chhoo Gayi’, ‘Saawan Ka Maheena Pawan Kare Sor etc.

Someone alone can even see a true friend and companion in the ‘breeze’ and sing ‘Sun Ri Pawan Pawan Purvaiyya,

We have songs where an individual is thinking of himself as form of ‘blowing wind’ ‘Main Hoon Ek Hawaa Ka Jhonka, ‘Main Jhonka Mast Hawaa Ka’, ‘. . .Ban Ke Hawaa Ka Jhonka, Main Nikal Jaaunga. . .‘. 

We even proudly speak of the eastern winds blowing in our country when we sing ‘Mere Desh Mein Pawan Chaley Purwaayi’, or when we speak about our revered river Ganga – ‘Machalti Huyi Hawaa Mein Chham Chham Hamaare Sang Sang Chaley Ganga Ki Lehren’,

And then we have some semi-philosophical songs like ‘Ae Ri Pawan Dhoondhe Kise Tera Mann’, ‘Thhandi Hawaa Ye Chaandni Suhaani Aye Mere Dil Sunaa Koi Kahaani’, ‘Chaley Pawan Ki Chaal’, or when we have turbulence in society our poets penned their thoughts by writing like ‘Aaj Hawaaon Mein Bhi Zehar Hai’ and looking for the ‘winds of change’ in the society.

And some of longing for the ‘. . .Fursat Ke Raat Din’ cannot forget ‘Ya Garmiyon Ki Raat Jo Purwaayiyaan Chalen’. . .

I would also like to mention here these songs ‘O Basanti Pawan Paagal’, and ‘O Pawan Veg Se Udne Waale Ghode , where the ‘pawan’ is invoked with special purpose and to relate ‘speed’ respectively.

Finally, coming to one of the best ‘lullaby songs’ and my favourites in this genre, where a mother is requesting the ‘wind’ or ‘hawaa’ to flow slowly as her child is sleeping … ‘Nanhi Kali Sone Chali Hawaa Dheere Aana’, or even take this lullaby for their male counterparts 🙂  respectively – ‘O Ri Hawaa Dheere Se Chal Sotaa Hai Munna Hamaara’.

And after a sound night sleep the ‘air’ can elevate our mood when we wake up next morning by singing a beautiful ‘prabhaati’ – Hawaa Ye Prabhati Sunaaye

There may be many other songs which I may not have mentioned above and still could be very much relevant to the subject, but then we have to stop, think, ponder and enjoy the today’s song too …

But before that, when we thank God for his bountiful gift to us and this beautiful nature we have to keep asking and seeking answer for ‘Hawaa Chale Jaisebecause He is the creator who only has the answer 🙂 .

For today’s post I am sharing a Non-Filmy song from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’.

This album was published by ‘Times Music’ in the year 2000 and which I added to my collection on 11.06.2000 (the day 11th June being a special one for us). We were staying at Bareilly then.

This album, though having all children songs, is one of my all-time favourite albums because all the lyrics for this album are penned by Gulzar Saab. Music is composed by ‘3 Brothers & A Violin’.

The list of singers includes some of our greatest singers, lending their voices to the songs in this album – we have Anuradha Sriram, Aditya Narayan, Bhupinder Singh, Hamsika Kishore, Manna Dey, Sanjeevani Bhelande, Shankar Mahadevan, SP Balsubramanyam, Udit Narayan, and child artists Madhumita Birukar, Sneha Tatapudy, Sruthi Sundaram, Sumitra Tatapudy, Vallari Shah and Vidya Sundaram as singers.

Gulzar Saab has given a brief narration before each song and that is just fascinating and it takes us to an altogether different land of animals and forests. And come to think of ‘pure air’, now the forests are the only place remaining where we can get ‘air’ in its pure, clean and natural form (if I am correct). . .

Today’s song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and child artists have provided the chorus.

(When I was looking for a song for this post and asked suggestions from my family members, the suggestion for this song came from younger daughter and I immediately decided to pick this song for this today’s post)

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song and enjoy the ‘gifts of nature’ and let us take care & control of our ‘emissions’ and ‘pollutants’, and let us pray that we have a ‘natural, pure, hygienic and pollution free’ – ‘Air’ in the future for all of us and the generations coming…


Song – Shabnami Si Hawa Hai, Ud Ke Dekhen To Kya Hai (NFS – Shankar Mahadevn) (2000) Singer – Shankar Mahadevan, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – 3 Brothers & A Violin
Chorus

Lyrics

(Narration by Gulzar Saab)

Jungle mein bhi aise hi mausam aate hai jaise sheharon mein. Sheharon mein monsoon aata hai, baarish hoti hai to aap log rain-coat pahan lete hai. Jaanwar nahin pahante. Jo darte hai chhup jaate hai gufaaon mein. Aur jinhe achchhi lagti hai baarish, wo baahar aakar khelne lagte hai.
Koyal chahakne lagti hai, papeeha pihu-pihu karne lagta hai.
Garmiyon mein nadi sukhne lagti hai. To unhe paani ki taqleef to hoti hai. Nal to hai nahin ki kholen. Bathroom bhi nahin hai. Nadi sukhi ho to kayi kayi din nahaate bhi nahin. Phir patjhad aa jaati hai, patte girne lagte hai, ped sukh jaate hai, aur baithhne ke liye chhaaon bhi nahin milti unhe.
Phir bahaar aati hai. Sarson phoolti hai. Titliyaan udne lagti hai. Bulbul bolne lagti hai. Mujhe to jungle ke saare mausam achchhe lagte hai.

Lekin sabse achchha lagta hai bahaar ka mausam. Seeli seeli ghaas par shabnami si hawaa, jab udti hai to waah kya baat hai

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

(गुलज़ार द्वारा कथन –

“जंगल में भी ऐसे ही मौसम आते है जैसे शहरों में. शहरों में मानसून आता है, बारिश होती है तो आप लोग रेन-कोट पहन लेते है. जानवर नहीं पहनते. जो डरते है छुप जाते है गुफाओं में. और जिन्हें अच्छी लगती है बारिश, वो बाहर आकर खेलने लगते है.
कोयल चहकने लगती है, पपीहा पिहू-पिहू करने लगता है.
गर्मियों में नदी सूखने लगती है. तो उन्हें पानी कि तकलीफ तो होती है. नल तो है नहीं के खोलें.
बाथरूम भी नहीं है. नदी सुखी हो तो कई कई दिन नहाते भी नहीं.
फिर पतझड़ आ जाती है, पत्ते गिरने लगते है, पेड़ सुख जाते है, और बैठने के लिए छाँव भी नहीं मिलती उन्हें.
फिर बहार आती है. सरसों फूलती है. तितलियाँ उड़ने लगती है. बुलबुल बोलने लगती है. मुझे तो जंगल के सारे मौसम अच्छे लगते है.

लेकिन सबसे अच्छा लगता है बहार का मौसम. सिली सिली घास पर शबनमी सी हवा, जब उडती है तो वाह, क्या बात है. . . )

Blog Day : 3963 Post No. : 15041

It is human nature that on every important occasion and event in life, we recall all the people who had ever crossed our lives and made a difference to it. I had a similar experience during the last year. I felt like I wanted to get in touch with people from way back as far as my childhood. I met people who were our neighbours when my daughter was born. I wanted to invite all those who knew her when she was very little and had showered prayers on her when she was not even aware of those blessings. Sometimes we lose touch with people as they move away or we move away. People who were neighbours and our kids used to play together. All of them had touched our lives, affected us in a good or bad way. Mostly in the essential goodness of human nature it was well intentioned.

For us working women, there is this space in the heart for those who looked after our children when we are away at work. Some such people, neighbour and acquaintances, I was able to contact and invite for the wedding. One of such who were neighbour of my parents and distantly related to my father, attended my daughter’s wedding with her extended family. Sometimes the bonds of shared memories and events in life transcend all constraints of time and distance. When that aunty came on stage to meet the bride and groom, that moment the day of my daughter’s birth flashed in my eyes.

Early in the morning that day the aunty was there to see us off when I was leaving for the hospital. Later on my daughter was born in caesarean section. That evening she came to see us in the hospital. I remembered talking to her about my daughter and the scary experience when the doctor told us that she cannot find the baby’s heartbeat which resulted in caesarean section. I started crying and she also started crying and comforting me. I also remember telling her that all I want from the Almighty now is that “mere bachche ka naseeb achha ho”.

A few weeks after the delivery I had high fever and suffered an epileptic fit. My daughter was a few weeks old, and my mother who had not seen anything like this thought I was dead. She says she kept looking at me and my daughter and wailing. Thankfully, I survived the fit with the timely help of doctors in the neighbourhood and basic first aid given by neighbours. Even during this time this aunty and her family was there on hand to lend a helping hand any which way.

Actually, the above memories had a trigger. I had a five day training schedule in the second week of April. During the training we were made to listen to all the same routine work procedure, rules and regulations, which we have been finding, using and following since day one 🙂 . Actually these procedures are all basically based on common sense and logic, I feel. Difficulty comes when something out of the ordinary crops up then we have the facility of looking up in the proper book and finding the instructions to deal with the situation in the appropriate manner.

During the training one day, a fellow participant suffered an epileptic fit, while the session was going on. A friend of her said that it happens to her from time to time. With the first aid, which thankfully some ladies knew, she was all right after a while. But all this reminded me to my experience of which I personally have no recollection. I know only what I was told afterwards. Seeing it happening to another person is actually more scaring.

The training got over on Friday just in time to enable me and my husband to leave for the trip to Rajasthan as planned on the Saturday. Since this was a first time for us, we had a lot to cover, see and enjoy in one week. It was not enough certainly with so many placed to see. We managed to see quite enough to want do the touristy thing again sometime and see the rest of the places. With so many historical places, forts, palaces and museums etc. it really is the tourists delight as Avinash ji has said in his post – “Mhaare Rajasthan Maa. . .“. I was really delighted to see the various red stone carved palaces and embellishments and some of those inlay work in ‘Sang-e-marmar’ is also visible in places. I have not seen too many such historical places so far, but I was able to detect some superimposition inside the monuments and outside the museum or palace areas. Sadly that is modernity or commercialisation for you. There is an influx of shops and touristy restaurants too, which might be commercial necessity for all I know.

You see the historical monuments are not humans and have no sense of self preservation. From what I learnt most of those places are private property and the owners are free to utilise them. The most well preserved buildings have been converted to star hotels. Good for them as they become commercially viable and will survive longer. At least the superbly carved Mehrangad Fort is a World Heritage site and deservedly.

In a palace shop in Rajasthan I saw a bottled ‘Mitti Ki Khushboo’ fragrance. ‘Mitti ki khusbhboo’ bottled and patented:) . I heard a guide saying that ‘when the first rain drops fall on the earth, this is that mehek”. Indeed…. we should get ‘Shameem’ also in the bottle one day I hope. After all hopes and aspirations are totally free of cost.

Since the day this trip was planned and looked like it will finally happen, I have been remembering the song – “Nainon Mein Badra Chhaaye“.

Without actually going to Udaipur it is possible to visualise it through these songs. I came back from the place humming this song. The panorama surrounding the lake still looks exactly the same as is seen in the song. That is something at least. Since than I have found another song from ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966) – “Nainon Waali Ne Haaye Mera Dil Loota” featuring the scenes of Lake Pichchola of Udaipur. This is no exaggeration, the lakes and surrounding Aravali range is real beautiful site.

I found a song which is like revisiting the places /forts and music and sounds of Rajasthan in the film ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999). The majestic Mehrangadh fort is visible in some frames in the song. This amalgamation of folk and classical music is composed by Ismail Darbar and lyricists is Mehboob. The singers are Ustad Sultan Khan, Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamoorthy. Quite a ‘bhaari bharkam’ trio what with the heavy voices and names :). In the video of the extended song many members of the cast are seen, notably the late Zohra Sehgal. Vikram Gokhle, Salman Khan and Aishwarya are singing it on screen.

Last word: What I brought back from Rajasthan is the sights and sounds of the locals talent and motivated enough in preserving the originality of the folk music and songs. I want to write more about Rajasthan, but this post is quite long now, so will keep the rest of my thoughts for some other post.

Hullo to Atuldom

October was slightly busier than normal. I have missed a few birthdays -dates which I always try to write for. I missed Kishore Kumar’s anniversary, and birthdays of Hema Malini, Ashok Kumar, Vinod Khanna, Smita Patil, Shammi Kapoor and a few for which I had made mental notes for – Sunny Deol, Kadar Khan etc. But unless I write oops! type, mental notes remain in the mind. And even mere typing is not enough I should send it as email too, technology has not yet advanced to the level that one person can read another’s thoughts and convert it into a post. Thank god that there is a small amount of privacy left in these modern technological times.

But my post today (26 october 2018) is not to cry about technology. Today is one of those dates in October which I don’t like to miss; at least for the last 3 years.

It is important for me that I write at least a few words to wish this dear friend of ours on his birthday. I may not be as eloquent as Atulji was in this post of his last year, or as emotional as Archanaji was in this post. I have not known our today’s birthday boy for as long as Pamir Harvey but I agree to everything that he had written in this post and have expressed it a few times in this last few years. He is among those friends with whom there has been a comfort level wherein I just message him or pick up the phone and talk for long without any particular topic (sometimes we do get topical).

As he has said last year in one of his comments and I quote “this blog might have started as a repository for HFM, but over the years, it has spawned close friendships amongst some of us, co-travellers.”

Here is wishing this co-traveller, friend, and fellow Atulite- Rajaji “A very very Happy birthday”. May we see more of you on the blog. And don’t mind if you can’t feed us with your essays even your twit-style writing is thought provoking.

The song with this post is from a rather new movie (by the standards of the blog) considering it released on 5th November, 1999. It was directed by Eeshwar Nivas, for a story by Ram Gopal Verma. The movie tried to portray the criminal-politician nexus using Bihar as the backdrop and its effect on the life of an honest police officer. The movie starred Manoj Bajpai and Sayaji Shinde on the two sides of the law. It won a National Award for best feature film, and represented India at various international film festivals. The songs were penned by Sameer and Amar Akbar Anthony were the music directors. OOPS, Sorry! I mean Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy (I have Shankar Mahadevan call the trio as Amar- Akbar- Anthony in one of his interviews).

Today’s song is sung by Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, and Shankar Mahadevan. It is a typical scene-in-a-middle class home in the morning before the father prepares to leave for work. A very familial situation where Raveena Tandon plays the homemaker – one of the many deglamourized roles she played.

Oh, it is also Raveena Tandon’s birthday today. Let us wish Raveena a long and healthy life and enjoy her in this song.


Song-Mere papa ka gussa (Shool)(1999) Singers-Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shankar Mahadewan, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Shankar Ehsan Loy

Lyrics

mere papa ka gussa
tam tadam

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
papa ka gussa kaisa
hai darasingh jaisa
dekho dekho
dekho dekho
ayya tere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
papa ka gussa kaisa
hai darasingh jaisa
dekho dekho
dekho dekho
ayya tere papa ko gussa jab aata hai

jaldi savere main uthti hoon
kya kya ghulaami karti hoon
socho socho
socho socho
jaldi savere main uthti hoon
kya kya ghulaami karti hoon
socho socho
socho socho
inko uthaake
chaai banaake doon main
kapde saare dhoti hoon
main naashta deti hoon
poore ghar ka bojh
apne sar pe main
leti hoo
tumhe bhi main sambhaaloon
inhe bhi main sambhaaloon
kaise bolo,
ho bolo bolo
ayya tere papa ko ghussa jab aata hai

mere papa ka ghussa
tam tadam

main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
meri majboori koi nahin samjhe yahaan

arre main bhi ghar mein cockroach aur choohon se ladhti hoon
saara din inke main peechhe padti hoon
tum bhi the mere pichhe
lekin shaadi se pehle
main hoon main hoon
boss ghar ki

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
papa ka ghussa kaisa
hai darasingh jaisa

dekho dekho
dekho dekho
dekho dekho
haan dekho dekho
mere papa ka gussa
tam tadam

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 19
———————————————————————

मिले ना फूल
तो काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰ ॰ ॰

दस बरस पहले, एक सफर शुरू हुआ – एक सफर जिसका कुछ भी नियत नहीं था, कुछ निश्चित प्रयोजन नहीं था, कुछ आशा भी नहीं थी के ये सिलसिला जाने कब तक चले। बस सिर्फ एक धुन, और एक नग़मा – ले चला जिधर ये दिल निकल पड़े।

और साथ ये भी कह दिया कि मंज़िल कहाँ कहाँ रुकना है ऊपर वाला जाने॰ ॰ ॰

कुछ मालूम नहीं था ये सफर क्या शक्ल हासिल करेगा। क्या कोई हमसफर मिलेगा? मालूम नहीं, ये सोचा भी था के नहीं। लेकिन फिर भी क्या॰॰॰ एक ज़िंदगी का तार पकड़ कर चल दिये। और सोचा यूं कि चलते चलो चलता हुआ साहिल है ज़िंदगी। ये तो अच्छा किया कि दूर की सोची नहीं। अब तीन साल में क्या हो या पाँच सात साल में क्या होगा ऐसी हर फिक्र को धुएँ में उड़ाते हुये, बस एक दिन और एक गीत – इस क्रम पे चलना शुरू किया।

कहते हैं, जब कर्म और विचार में खोट नहीं, तो प्रकृति, दिशाएँ, तत्व, देव – सब कुछ ही साथ हो संबल देते है।  दस साल पहले जो सफर अकेले ही शुरू हुआ था, आज इन दस साल के बाद अब इसकी गिनती करोड़ों में होती है।  क्रम नहीं बदला, नीयत नहीं बदली – जो बदला वो बस यही के लोग साथ आते गये और कारवां बढ़ता गया।

दस साल बाद भी, आज कोई पूछे तो जवाब नहीं बदला – ये हँसता हुआ कारवां ज़िंदगी का न पूछो चला है किधर॰॰॰।

कितने पड़ाव आए और गुज़र गये, कितने ही मील पत्थर रास्ते में मिले और नज़रों से ओझल हुये।  इस सफर में हम कहाँ कहाँ से गुज़र गये – देस भी घूमा, दुनिया भी घूमी; सागर, नदियां, पर्वत, वादियाँ, जंगल और सैहरा, रास्ते और गलियाँ, पनघट और खलिहान, बाज़ार भी, मेले भी और अकेले भी – सब कोने छू लिए। कभी रेल में, तो कभी मोटर कार में, कभी घोड़े कि टापों के संग, तो कभी रिक्शे में। कभी बैल कि गाड़ी में घूमे, तो कभी तांगे के हिचकोले खाये। कशतियों में कभी झीलों का झरोखा, और कभी जहाज़ में समुद्र का दीदार किया। साइकल की सैर भी की, और कभी प्लेन से सारी धरती को देखा। और तो और, क्रेन, ट्रक और ट्रैक्टर को भी नहीं छोड़ा।

कभी हरी दर्शन को तड़पते मन देखे, कभी मदीने की दुआएं मांगी।  कभी बंजारों के गीत सुने, और तो फिर कभी सूफी के कलाम। बुद्ध कि शरण में गये तो कभी येशु के दर पे सर झुकाया। कभी सृष्टि के चित्रकार को ढूँढा, और कभी कर्म गति की शिक्षा सुनी। कभी शुक्राने फरमाए उस खुदा की बंदगी में, तो कभी ज़िंदगी से ऊब कर उसे खूब खरी खोटी भी सुनाई।

कभी किसी नाज़नीं से लहंगे कि फरमाइश सुनी, और कभी प्रेमी कि ज़ुबान से चाँद कि उपमाएँ। कभी बरसात ने दिल लुभाया, तो कभी बात बात में मैंने दिल तुझको दिया। कभी गर्मी की धूप से बचने की सलाह देखी, तो कभी बर्फ की सर्दी को दिल की आंच से कम होते देखा।

गोद में बच्चों को सुलाते हुये माँ कि लोरियाँ सुनी, तो कभी बच्चों से माँ के आँचल कि पुकार। नग़में सुने दोस्ती के और ग़ज़लें सुनी इश्क़ की।  मोहब्बत के जलवों से रोशन जन्नत के नज़ारे किए, तो कभी टूटे दिल के नालों ने हमें भी रुलाया।

कभी दिल मचला और झूम के गा उठा – किसान अपनी फसल देख के, फौजी छुट्टी पर घर जाते हुये, इक जवान दिल इश्क़ का इक़रार पा कर, और तो कभी बस इस कायनात की खूबसूरती पर।

कभी दिल रोया और रो कर गाया – भीख मांगते हुये बच्चे, कोई बिछड़ कर जाने लगा, कभी मोहब्बत के धोखे उठाए, और तो कभी किस्मत के थपेड़ों की शिकायत में।

कभी एक चोर की कहानी सुनी, कभी बिक्री वालों से उनकी उम्दा दलीलें सुनी, कभी मेहनतकशों की प्रेरणा भा गई, और तो कभी सड़क पे तमाशों के नज़ारे किए।

हुस्न की जल्वानुमाई देखि, तो कभी हुस्न के एहसान; कभी हुस्न की संगदिली ज़ाहिर हुई, तो कभी सिर्फ शिकवों का ज़िक्र हुआ। फ़लक पे सूरज चाँद और तारों की कहानी सुनी, तो कभी शराब की मस्ती शराबी की जुबानी सुनी।

फूलों से किसी कमसिन के चेहरे को मुक़ाबिल देखा, तो कभी किसी अल्हड़ की लापरवाह चाल से झरनों की उपमा हुई।

कसमें वादे होते देखे साँसों की हद तक, और कभी टूटे वादों के साथ दिल के टुकड़े बिखरते देखे।

कोई जश्न का मौका छूटा नहीं, कोई नाम अछूता रहा नहीं।

कभी धरती और देश के झंडे से बुलंद हुये, तो कभी इंसानी ज़ुल्म से हताश।

कभी शहीदों की कहानियाँ पलटीं, तो कभी भली आत्माओं का दर्शन किया।

सुख की घड़ियाँ, दुख के बादल; हंसी के लम्हे, आँसू की ढलकन; मिलने की खुशी, ना मिलने का ग़म; प्यार का झगड़ा, बेवफाई के ज़ख्म; बारात का बाजा, दिल का राजा; मंदिर का दीपक, खुदा से दुआएं; रिश्तों की संवेदना, और साथ ही वेदना; प्यार का फलसफा, और ज़िंदगी की तालीम।

कभी वो गीत में, कभी नज़्म में, कभी ग़ज़ल में, तो कभी भजन में, कभी ट्विस्ट में तो कभी डिस्को में; कभी क़व्वाली में, तो कभी सहगान में; कभी कविता जैसी लगी, तो कभी कथा जैसी; कभी तुम्हारी छवि दिखी, कभी उसकी; और तो ज़्यादा कहानी अपनी सी लगी।

दस साल। दस साल और पन्द्रह हज़ार उमंगें। रोज़ की नई नवेली। कभी लगता भी है कि पहले सुना था, लेकिन फिर भी लगता है नया सा। कितने सारे भावों की बरसात हुई है, क्या बेशुमार दौलत मिली है – दस साल में। नायाब खजाना है। और सोचो तो, शुरू कहाँ से किया था – “॰॰॰काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰॰॰”। मुनासिब ही तो है, ये दौलत काँटों से गुज़र के ही पाते हैं। और तमन्नाएं॰॰॰ उनका तो कहना ही क्या। कुछ मिल जाये, इसकी तो फिक्र कभी थी ही नहीं। बस एक ही बात, एक ही लगन॰॰॰ दिल चाहता है॰॰॰  साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

जी हाँ, दिल चाहता है। जब एक गाना ढूंढ रहा था इस जश्न के लिए, तो मन बहुत घूमने के बाद इस बात पे ठहरा कि एक सफरनामा होना चाहिए, एक गाना जिस में बस सफर हो, कोई मंज़िल न हो। जिसमें बस हमख्यालों का दख़ल हो। जो सब मेरे हमकदम हों, मेरे हमनशीं, मेरे हमज़ुबाँ हों। अपनी यादों और आदतों से वहीं ढूँढता रहा साठ और सत्तर से पहले। इत्तेफाक़ देखिये, मिला तो बखूबी वही जो दिल चाहता है। हाँ ‘दिल चाहता है’ – फिल्म भी वही और नग़मा भी वही। 2001 में जारी हुई ये फिल्म मेंने उन्हीं दिनों में अपने सफरगुज़ारी के दौरान देखी। न जाने क्यों, इस फिल्म से मोहब्बत हो गई। और खास कर के इस गाने से। हल्की सी मस्ती की लहर में हल्का सा ढुलकता सा गाना, सुस्ताता हुआ, आलसी सा गाना, धीरे धीरे बहता जैसे बहार में सुबह कि मीठी सी सबा॰॰॰ लापरवाही में एक प्रतिबिम्बित चिंतन॰॰॰ गाना तो ऐसे मन को भाया के बस।

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

होता है ना कभी कभी ऐसे ही। कुछ ऐसा कहा जाता है दो लफ्जों में, के और कुछ कहने की कसर बाकी रहती नहीं। जो बात मन की है, वो बस इतनी ही मुकम्मल है, जो ऊपर लिखे मिसरों में ब्याँ हो गई – तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

और कुछ कहना वाजिब नहीं।

इस फिल्म के ज़्यादातर किरदारों को पहली बार देखा था। बहुत सालों बाद एक हिन्दी फिल्म देखी थी शायद। मन को जम गई। 🙂

गीत जावेद अख्तर का लिखा है, संगीत बद्ध किया शंकर-एहसान-लोय कि तिकड़ी ने। गाने वाली आवाज़ शंकर महादेवन की है। स्क्रीन पर ये गाना बैक्ग्राउण्ड में फिल्माया गया। और क्या असरदार फिल्माया गया। गीत ही गीत सुनता है, बाकी सब खामोशी है। एक तुष्टि की, एक पूर्णता की खामोशी है। एक खुशी भरी सुस्ती की खामोशी है॰॰॰ जो दिल चाहता है वो मुझे मिला है॰॰॰ ऐसी खामोशी है

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस॰॰॰ सिलसिलेवार

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

[Author’s Note: Apologies due on many counts, including the sudden and surprising change in the presentation language above. The writing started and then I just couldn’t stop the flow. And so I let it flow. In case there are requests, I can add the English translation also. Regarding the gap in celebration sequence, that story is coming up tomorrow. 🙂 ]

Hullo Atulites

The dust is yet to settle on the excitement of the 10th year celebration of the blog, a few more posts are awaited. Meantime something more awe-inspiring has occurred.

Our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh (also known as in-house encyclopaedia) in collaboration with Prof. Surjit Singh has come out with a book titled “Forgotten Artists of Early cinema and The Same Name Confusion”. The book has a foreword by Shri. Sanjit Narwekar. The book (in guruji’s words) is “the result of my work over the last so many years and is based primarily on my articles posted on our blog and elsewhere-duly abridged and edited to suit a book.” (I have copied this quote from the mail he has sent to all of us viz: his fellow-atulites) Hats-off to you Sirji, guruji. And to think that this is his passion from the late 40s – seeing movies. His habit of making notes about every film he saw in notebooks (I have seen a few notebooks). Post 2011 he made baby-steps into Cyber world, discovered this amazing blog, made his first comments and on encouragement from our ring-leader Atulji posted articles on films ranging from the 30s to 2018 using the notes he has made over the years. Era-no-bar as far as Guruji is concerned, the only qualification needed he should fall in love with the song. (Most of what I have written are quotes and utterances by guruji in many of his posts and the occasional conversation I have had with him over the years. I am sorry for any misquotes.)

Today is Kargil-Divas when the nation thanks and pays homage to the men-in-uniform who fought the enemy in in-hospitable conditions of the Siachen Glacier in 1999 and regained control of territory that was intruded.

In the month of May I had a holiday in the North-east region of the Himalayas. We visited Nathu-La Pass and a temple dedicated to Baba Harbhajan Singh. It is a known fact that Nathu-La Pass is a strategically important location for the Indian army on the Indo- China border and only a few visitors per day are given permission to visit the place. But the little known mandir is what fascinated me. It is not a mandir to a religious head but a Samadhi to a Captain of 18 Rajput Regiment who is revered as the “Hero of Nathu-La”. He joined the Indian Army as a soldier at 19 and was posted in various regiments before being posted to the 18 Rajput in Nathu-La, East Sikkim at the time of his untimely death.

We heard and read different versions of his heroism. One story said that he fell into a gorge or nullah as he was escorting a Mule- column from Tuku-La to Dongchi-La, his body was swept away and recovered about 2-miles away. He is said to have appeared in the dreams of his fellow-soldiers and asked them to build the samadhi. Another story says that the soldiers posted in and around Nathu-La and its inhospitable environment are protected by the spirit of Baba (captain) Harbhajan Singh. Whatever be the story/ legend one thing is for sure- the Indian Armed forces should be saluted for the kind of service that they do selflessly, day-in and day-out year after year. And without an iota of complaint about the working conditions – be it the deserts of Rajasthan or the glaciers of the Himalayas. I have visited both the terrains and my respect for the Forces has only increased.

On the occasion of Kargil Divas we should have a song dedicated to the forces and the hard training that they undergo so that they can protect us. For this I am revisiting the 2004 Farhan Akhtar directed Lakshya which starred Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta with Amitabh Bachchan and a host of other actors. This is a song sung by Shankar Mahadevan written by Javed Akhtar and Shankar- Ehsaan-Loy are the music directors. The song is shot mostly on location at the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun. The song closes with the gentlemen cadets finishing their training and stepping on a mat which says “Antim Pag”.

This year (2018) was a proud year for my best-friend-forever when her elder son joined the ranks of military men, graduating into a gentleman officer from IMA Dehradun, following the footsteps of his Grandfather and Father. Feel proud to be a associated with that family.

Just a coincidence -Guruji has also reached a “Lakshya”

Chorus

Lyrics (based on audio)

haan yahi rasta hai tera
toone abb jaana hai
haan yahi sapna hai tera
toone pehchaana hai

haan yahi rasta hai tera
toone abb jaana hai
haan yahi sapna hai tera
toone pehchaana hai
tujhe abb yeh dikhaana hai
roke tujh ko aandhiyaan
ya zameen aur aasmaan
paayega jo lakshya hai tera
lakshya toh
har haal mein paana hai
oooo

mushqil koi aa jaye toh
parbat koi takraaye toh
taakat koi dikhlaaye toh
toofaan koi mandlaaye toh
mushqil koi aa jaye toh
parbat koi takraaye toh
barse chaahe ambar se aag
lipte chaahe pairon se naag
barse chaahe ambar se aag
lipte chaahe pairon se naag

paayega jo lakshya hai tera
lakshya toh har hal mein paana hai

himmat se jo koi chale
dharti hiley kadmon taley
kya dooriyaan kya faasle
manzil lage aake galey
himmat se jo koi chaley
dharti hiley kadmon taley
tu chal yoonhi abb subah-o-shaam,
rukna jhukna nahin tera kaam
tu chal yoonhi abb subah-o-shaam,
rukna jhukna nahin tera kaam

paayega jo lakshya hai tera
lakshya toh har haal mein paana hai
oooo
oooo
oooo
oooo

haan yahi rasta hai tera
toone abb jaana hai
haan yahi sapna hai tera
toone pehchaana hai
tujhe abb yeh dikhaana hai
