“Jungle Ka Jawaahar” (1952) was a Basant Pictures production movie. It was directed by Homi Wadia. The movie had John Cawas, Nadia, Dalpat, Goldstein, Shapur, Agha, Abdulla etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today is the 102nd birth anniversary of Saraswati Kumar Deepak (7 july 1918-8 july 1986). While searching the dates of his anniversaries, I drew a blank on google. So it turns out that the anniversary page of this blog is perehaps one of the very few places online where these dates are available.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Jungle Ka Jawaahar”(1952). This song is sung by Shyam Sundar (singer) and Sulochana Kadam. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madholal Damodar Master.

The song picturised as a Tarzan and Jane kind of picturisation. My guess is that the actors are the famous John Cawas and Nadia. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

The lyrics are cute. The city slicker gentleman wants to introduce the lady to the charms of Big cities like Bombay and Delhi, but the lady, comfortable is jungle, wants none of that.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 3488 Post No. : 14009

In the early 1970s in Mumbai, it was quite common to see Pathan moneylenders standing outside the gates of the factories, mills, railway workshops and even some of the Government offices. Pathan moneylenders used to lend money at high interest rates, mostly to workers and subordinate staff who were in perpetual need of money. I had frequently watched them standing outside the main gate of my office, normally in pair, during the first week of every month. Their operations were always discreet without inviting any attention from the passers-by except that their distinct dress and caps would identify them to be the Pathans.

I had got the first hand information on the modus operandi of the Pathan moneylenders from one of my subordinate staff who was perpetually indebted to them. On the salary day, they would be present at the gate at the start of the office, at lunch time and the office closing time. If a borrower is not able to pay the monthly interest/principal amount, he would try to avoid the Pathans by not going out of the office during lunch time, would leave the office well before the closing time or leave late. But the network of the Pathans was so large that they would eventually catch the defaulters and get at least the interest amount by their discreet strong arm methods.

Their other occupation, that I have seen during my early years in the office, was selling dry fruits on the footpath. The Pathan would generally come around lunch time to sell the dry fruits near the gates of the office. He would continuously give high pitch commentaries describing the  quality of dry fruits and revealing the benefits of consuming dry fruits. Some passers-by would stand and watch the proceedings. Amongst these bystanders I suspected that a few of Pathans’ cronies would have themselves bought few items of dry fruits to create an aura of the demand for his dry fruits.

When the things which I described above became common, the Hindi films took cognizance of such activities which normally culminate into fun songs. For example, note the second stanza of the immortal song Din Hai Suhaana Aaj Pahli Taarikh Hai in which lalaji (generally refers to money lending Pathans) is waiting for his client to repay his loan:

kis ne pukaara ruk gaya baabu
lalaji ki jaan aaj aaya hai kaabu
o paisa zara laana
laana laana
o paisa zara laana
aaj pahli taarikh hai
khush hai zamaana aaj pahli taarikh hai

Similarly, in the song Mera Naam Abdul Rehman, Pistaawala Main Hoon Pathan from ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), the second stanza of the song has the following lines:

leo ji bhai saab hamaara pistaa bahut achhaa
leo ji mem saab hamaara pistaa nahi kachchaa
leo ji saab log khaayegaa aap ka baal bachchaa
khaa ke dekho very very good mera charoli baadaam pista

Very recently, I came across a similarly worded stanza in sales pitch song from the 1939 film ‘Hero No. 1’. The song is ‘Leu Ji Memsaab Hamaara Pista Bahut Achhaa’. The song is sung by actor-singer  Shyam Sundar (Sr.) on the words of Pandit Anuj, is set to music by Lallubhai Nayak. The actor-singer Shyam Sundar is not to be confused with the music director Shyam Sundar. As per his filmography, Shyam Sundar (Sr.) started his career as actor with ‘Sakhi Lutera’ (1934). He worked in over 30 films – overwhelmingly during 1930s and 40s. He has sung about 20 songs on himself in the films. It is apparent that his voice is feminist. Had I not seen his videos of the songs from ‘Hunterwali Ki Beti’ (1943), I would have assumed him to be a female singer.

So the inspiration for the second stanza of the song from ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956) referred to above was the song under discussion which came out 15 years earlier of ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956). I guess, Pandit Anuj may have got the inspiration for the lyrics by actually observing a Pathan selling dry fruits with his sales pitch.

‘Hero No.1’ was produced by Vijay Bhatt under the banner of Prakash Pictures and was directed by Balwant Bhatt. This action film had the cast of Jayant, Gulab, Umakant, Shirin, Lallubhai Nayak, Faizi, Munshi Khanjar, Bholaram, Ranjit, Shyam Sundar etc. There were 7 songs in the film.

With this song, the film ‘Hero No.1 (1939) makes a debut in the Blog.

[Ed Note: ‘Charoli’ is also a dry fruit. It is known by other names as ‘chironji’ or ‘chirongi’. Its English name is almondette.]
