Blog Day :

4575 Post No. : 16182

Today is 26th january (2021), which is republic day for India. Arguably, this is the most important day for independent India, more important than even the independence day, in my opinion.

71 years have passed since India was declared a republic on 26 January 1950. During the past 71 years, we have been through lots and lots of changes, upheavels, trials and tribulations, calamities etc. Thankfully today we find ourselves in a better position than what we were at in 1950. In fact, we find ourselves in a much better position vis a vis 1990.

I was born when the first Prime Minister and first President of India were still around. So I have lived through the eras of all the Prime Ministers and Presidents of India that we had !

During all these decades, some good practices have taken root. On the other hand, we still have some bad practices that we need to get rid of.

Instead of talking about what the government should do, here I will largely discuss what we need to do. Since we are a democratic republic, our behaviour decides what the government does, rather than the other way round.

Here are some of my observations.

1. Someone else will do it:- This attitude, which is basically passing the buck, has harmed India a great deal over the decades. Instead of doing the work ourselves, we wait for someone else to do the job. As a result, that job remains pending. Worst still, that creates a long lasting problem for the nation.

2. Chalta hai attitude– We expect others to be perfect, but we ourselves are far too lax in our on dealings. We can find fault in the batting technique of Virat Kohli, but we rarely judge our own performance in our workplace with the same high standards.

3. Putting self interest before national interest– Look at the demands of any unions, be it staff union or officers union. All the ten points of their memorandum would contain demands about betterment of their perks, not a single demand would be about the betterment of the organisation.

4. Very few people, typically 1 % of the people are supposed to bear the burden of the entire population. For instance, only 1 % population of India pays income tax, and that money is then squandered in giving subsidy to “poor” people instead of helping them train to come out of “poverty”.

5. Wealth creation and wealth creators have been demonised in India. Poor people and Poverty get glorified. This state of affairs should change immediately.

6. Many indians suffer from inferiority complex vis a vis western countries. This inferiority complex is misplaced and is a result of systematic brainwashing.

The above are some of the points that one can think of without much effort.

What do I have to suggest to improve matters ?

I will make a one point suggestion, instead of making too many suggestions. My one point suggestion is, we have to overhaul our education system. The present education system churns our zombies, who lack the ability to think for themselves and are easily brainwashed. It serves the purpose of the self seeking politicians but it has harmed the country a great deal in all fields. Our education system encourages rote memory, rather than application of knowledge. No wonder our manpower cannot even do basic works, forget doing cutting edge technical works. Whatever competent manpower we have are not because of our education system but inspite of this education system.

We have framed our constitutution based on the British Constitution. But we have not framed our education system based on British education system. British (namely Lord Macauley) gave us an education system in India. Britain herself has an entirely different kind of education system, one that does not seek to produce semi literate babus, unlike the case in India. As soon as India had our constitution, we needed to have our own education system. It has become too late now. Seven decades too late, but better late than never. we can still try and ensure better education system for the future generations.

Instead of insisting on same degrees for everyone, we need to insist on vocational training based on the aptitude of students, instead of imposing the same kind of education on everyone.

Failing an elephant because it cannot climb a tree, failing a monkey because it cannot fly, comdemning a goat because it cannot uproot a tree, that is how our Macaulean education system judges its students.

India has requirements of qualified people in all fields. What is happening now is that all people take the same education.Those who score higher marks become engineers, doctors. Those who score lower marks become civil servants. Those who score even lower become clerks. People scoring even lower become peons, guards etc. Those who cannot get any jobs become freelancers. Those who are not good enough for any jobs become politicians. And all these people are not trained properly for their jobs ! A clerk is not trained to be a clerk. A security guard is not trained to be a security guard. When a civil contractor hires workers to execute his contract, the workers like say masons, or welders are not properly trained for their jobs. They have mostly learnt their work from other workers. In my proposed education system, a mason or a welder will need to be trained by a recognised welding trainer, a plumber by a recognised plumbing trainer etc. This is because continuous imporovemnt takes place in all fields of activities. Our workers whether in organised sector or unorganised sector are far far behind in their knowledge and mastery about latest advancements in their fields. Even security guards should have training.

The above discussion is largely for workers in manufacturing and services sector. The same is needed for the agriculture sector where Indian productivity is among the lowest in the world. One reason is that majority of farmers are not educated. Farmers too need to be well educated in their area of activity, instead of trying to earn the same meaningless degree as others.

In summary, our education system should ensure the supply of highly skilled manpower in all the fields. Even cleanliness, which is considered a menial work, is a specialised work, and people who are tasked with this work need to be well trained for this work.

As I have mentioned earlier, we need to identify the aptitude of individuals and give them vocational training based on his attitude. This is what happens in advanced nations. They do not encourage mindless enrolment in colleges for taking meaningless degrees.

We need not reinvent the wheel. The kind of education system that I have suggested in already available in advanced nations. I suggest that we adopt the German education system. It is a tried and tested education system and we all are aware of German products and their quality that this education system helps produce.

Any country can have two kinds of resources- one is natural resources (mineral ores etc) and other is human resources. One will notice that a country can develop only when its human resources are developed, even if they lack natural resources. For instance, Japan, Israel, Singapore are three nations that have negligible natural resources but they are highly advanced nations thanks to their sell trained human resource. On the other hand we have examples of countries (for example African countries) that are under developed despite possessing vast mineral resources.

India fortunately is very well blessed by nature. But we have failed to make the most of our nature given resources because we have not made the most of our human resources. If we harness our human resources, we sill not only utilise them produtively, we will also be able to take advantage of what the expetts describe as our potential demographic advantage (vast majority of population of India being in working ager group, unlike most other countries).

Today (26 January 2021) we are celebrating our 71st Republic day. We have quite a few things to feel proud about on this occasion. American and British media had predicted millions of covid 19 deaths in India. India has proved them wrong. It appears that these media were watching their own countries in mirror. As on today USA and Britain continue to reel under COVID 19 epidemic, ith Britain even “pioneering” a more dangerous strain of this virus. Unlike these countries, India is even offering low cost and safer vacceines to many countries of the nation.
See this thank you message by Brazil. Makes every Indian proud.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Anjaan”(1941). “Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

One will notice that the song is from an era when India was not even independent, forget being a republic. But still this song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep who sore patriotism on his sleeves, that too in an era when it was very risky to do so. In this song, sung by Ashok Kumar and others, they exhort the naujaaan of Bharat (viz the human resource of India) to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself to them. And the song advises them not to miss this opportunity unlike the missed opportunities of the past.

Pannalal Ghosh is the music director.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala many years ago. This happens to be the 500th lyrics contribution by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog. A befitting achievement for him on the occasion of the Indian Republic day, seeing that he too, like Kavi Pradeep, wears his partiotism on his sleeve.

On this occasion, I ish a happy republic day to one and all. Jai Hind.

Song-Duniya ke anyaayion anyaay ki hoti khair nahin (Baalyogi Upmanyu)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

duniya ke anyaayiyon
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
aandhi ho barsaat ho ya toofaan ho
bujh na sakega deepak mere suhaag ka
sach ki hogi ee ee
sach ki hogi jeet sada
jismein hai zara bhi pher nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
phailti rahti dharam ki bel wo
kat nahin sakti kabhi talwaar se
deen dayaalu u u
deen dayaalu
apne in bhakton ki taale ter nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 114 # Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975 #
——————————————————————————————-

I was aware of the movie ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1957’ mainly associating it with its song ‘raat ne kya kya khwaab dikhaaye’ sung by Talat Mahmood. However, during the tagging of this movie for ‘Yippeeeee Project’ I came across a vinyl cover of a movie having same title with Rakesh Pandey featuring on its cover. That was more than a hint for me that this could be of a movie from the ‘seventies. When I checked it in HFGK Vol-V, I found this movie made in the year of ‘1975’. (I may have read the movie name earlier in the ‘Geet-Kosh’ but may had forgotten about it).

Today ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ get introduced on the blog to join ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani’ of ‘1957’. And that serves our mission of bringing movies with same titles on the blog.

‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ was directed by S.S. Balan for ‘Gemini Pictures Circuit Pvt Ltd, Madras’. S.S. Balan was also the producer of this movie. M.S. Vishwanath was the co-director of this movie and Kittapaa and Rangan were the assistant directors for this movie.

The movie was based on an original ‘Kannada’ screen play written and directed by Siddalingayya. It had Rakesh Pandey, Jeevan, Jayshree Gadkar, Neerja, Baby Rama, Nazeer Hussain, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, C.D. Dubey, Bramchari, V. Gopal, Birbal, Ram Avtar, Bihari, Sharif Romani, Ishwarlal, Raghva, Master Raju, and introducing Lokesh and Manjula.

Story of this movie was written by Gorur Ramswami Ayyiyangar and dialogues were written by Vishwanath. diting of this movie was done by M. Umanath with M. Mani as his assistant.

This movie had five songs written by Indeewar and composed to music by Ravindra Jain.

S.No. Song title Singer/s
01 Tu hi bataa tujhe paane ka kaun sa hai tarikaa Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
02 Kesar jaisi tu kishori, kanchan kaaya teri gori Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri banno pyaari banno Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar
04 Sukh shaanti usey kya miley jiske man mein bair… kuchh naa milaa kisiko nafrat ke dwaar se.. Mohd Rafi
05 Jai kaali, jai mahaakaali, karna tu sabki rakhwaali Manna Dey, Jaspal Singh

Asha Bhonsle, Jaspal Singh, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.04.1975.

(I have not watched this movie but whatever visuals I have watched during the preparation of this post it seems that the movie was shot on beautiful locations of Karnataka and as acknowledged in the titles the places are Village – Kalasapura, Kelagur Coffee & Tea Estates etc. (Knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie can throw more light on this)).

Today we are going to listen a song from this movie sung by Mohd Rafi. The lyrics by Indeewar are worth paying heed to and it carries a message relevant for all times (I think so).

However, it seems that this song was not included in the movie, except for the first few lines (I guess that maybe it was censored? because of the straight forward lyrics).

The movie is available online and though I had not watched this movie I was looking for when this song happens in the movie. There is a scene in this movie where the rival groups of the village – one led by Rakesh Pandey and other (I think) by Lokesh – are shown coming out of the court premises where the song starts but after the first four lines only the music keeps playing and not the verses. This is the only solo song in this movie and all other are duet songs.

Let us now listen to the song written by Indeewar and composed by Ravindra Jain. Mohd Rafi is the singer of this ‘song with a message’…

Song-Kuchh na mila kisi ko nafrat ke dwaar se (Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani)(1975) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

sukh shaanti

kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se ae
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

kisi ki uljhan kabhi naa suljhi ee ee
court kachehari jaa ke
har vakeel kaa
kyun bharte ho
apne ghar ko lutaa ke
ho o o
apnaa galaa naa kaato
apni hi talwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

Insaan ki aadat
aur adaalat
donon ek hi jaise
jeewan bhar ye pind na chhoden
inse bache ae koyi kaise
ho o o
jeet se bhi dukh utna
dukh jitnaa haar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se ae
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

कोर्ट कचहरी जा के
हर वकील का
क्यूँ भरते हो
अपने घर को लुटा के
हो ओ ओ
अपना गला ना काटो
अपनी ही तलवार से
अदालत के द्वार से ए ए
आपस की तकरार को
निपटा लो प्यार से ए

इंसान की आदत और अदालत
दोनों एक ही जैसे
जीवन भर ये
पिंड ना छोड़े ए
इनसे बचे ए कोई कैसे
हो ओ ओ
जीत से भी दुःख उतना
दुःख जितना हार से
अदालत के द्वार से ए ए
आपस की तकरार को
निपटा लो प्यार से ए
आपस की तकरार को
निपटा लो प्यार से ए
कुछ ना मिला किसी को
नफरत के द्वार से
अदालत के द्वार से ए
आपस की तकरार को
निपटा लो प्यार से ए
कुछ ना मिला किसी को
कुछ ना मिला किसी को
नफरत के द्वार से ए
अदालत के द्वार से ए
आपस की तकरार को

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 112 # Debutant movie – Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973
——————————————

While discussing this song ‘chhoone na doongi main haath re’ from ‘Zindagi-1964’ Atul ji had given the complete details of filmography(or discography) of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I was looking for a movie where music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan and the movie was yet to be introduced on the blog. The filmography starts from ‘Barsaat-1949’ and the last movie in this list is ‘Love In Bombay-2013’.
The oldest movie in the list not yet introduced on the blog is ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’. I am presenting a song from this movie today.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker.

It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili, and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie had total five songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Here are the details of these songs;

Song Lyricist
Dekho dil na kisi ka toote… pyaar ka rishtaa sachchaa rishta, baaki rishte jhoothhe Indeevar
O ho ho ho … aansoo ko paseene mein badlo … mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai Indeevar
Oye, nakh nakh nakhre waali… de de re dil mera … Shakeel Badayuni
Mera naam hai Flory … Shakeel Badayuni
Haay haay dukhi jaaye mori kamariyaa… Shakeel Badayuni

Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970) and Indeevar.

For today’s presentation I have selected a motivational song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Indeevar. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

With today’s song, ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ makes its debut on the blog …

Let us now listen to this song with a message….

Song-Aansoo ko paseene mein badlo (Pyaar Ka Rishtaa)(1973) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

o ho ho ho o
o ho o °°°°°°°°

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik pal mein chhupaa hai ik jeewan
ik pal na bitaanaa baaton mein
kismat na sitaaron mein dekho
kismat hai tumhaare haathhon mein
baaton se kuchh bhi nahin hota
haathhon hi se kuchh bantaa hai
mehnat ka naam hai taaj mahal
mehnat ka naam ajanta hai
insaan ka paseena girte hi
patthar se phool nikalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik roz to daulat ke badle
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
saara sansaar badalnaa hai
jab mehnat ki qeemat hogi
chaandi na kahin chal paayegi
sikkon mein nahin dhal paayegi
mehnat ko nahin chhal paayegi ee
haathon ki haraarat lagte hi *
pal mein faulaad pighalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

इक पल में छुपा है इक जीवन
इक पल न बिताना बातों में
किस्मत न सितारों में देखो
किस्मत है तुम्हारे हाथों में
बातों से कुछ भी नहीं होता
हाथों ही से कुछ बनता है
मेहनत का नाम है ताज महल
मेहनत का नाम अजंता है
इंसान का पसीना गिरते ही
पत्थर से फूल निकलता है

इक रोज़ तो दौलत के बदले
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
सारा संसार बदलना है
जब मेहनत की कीमत होगी
चांदी न कहीं चल पाएगी
सिक्कों में नहीं ढल पाएगी
मेहनत को नहीं छल पाएगी ई
हाथों की हरारत लगते ही *
पल में फौलाद पिघलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

Blog Day:

4481 Post No. : 15992

Hello everyone,

My appearances here on the blog are becoming increasingly infrequent, not unlike the cameo visits of an MP/MLA to his constituency post-elections. 🙂

I will not get into reasons for my long absence from here – no excuses. Mea culpa.

As usual, my appearance here marks a special occasion.
This time it has to do with Sahir Ludhianvi’s death anniversary.

The legendary poet & lyricist passed away exactly 40 years ago, on the 25th of October 1980.

What can I write about Sahir that I haven’t already written here in previous posts?

Hardly anything, to be honest.

I’ve written so much about him here, on many of his birth and death anniversaries, that anything I write will be repetitive.

And yet I cannot let the occasion go by without marking it with my small contribution here. It has almost become a ritual for me now. 🙂

One thing though.

I might be a big Sahir fan, but I´m nothing compared to Avinash ji.
As usual, he contacted me a few days ago requesting me to do a post for this occasion.

And, as usual, he sent me a song with lyrics.

That was all the motivation I needed to come out of hibernation. 🙂

Prompted by the lyrics of this song, Avinash ji also shared some of this thoughts with me. Wide-ranging reflections on society, politics, media, polarization and other topics.

I must say I agree with his views – sobering thoughts for these times.

So today, perhaps the best tribute I can give Sahir is not to repeat what I’ve said so often about his poetry and lyrics, but to just reflect on where we are as a society, much as Sahir often did.

So kindly bear with me as I share a few thoughts.

You don’t have to agree with me at all – that’s perfectly fine.
We can disagree – and still be friends. 🙂

So if Sahir were around today, how would he have felt about today’s India?

Indian society, politics, media, justice system. . . everything that touches the common man’s life.

Am specifically talking about the common man, because clearly Sahir used his voice most to speak up for the aam aadmi and underprivileged against the powerful.

I’m not sure Sahir would’ve had many kind things to say.

The religious divide he warned us about, the exploitation of women he lamented, the oppression of labor class that he railed against, the caste inequality that he talked about – all of them exist, and even flourish, to this day.

At least in the early years post-independence, one can argue that India was still struggling to find its feet. It was besieged with a whole lot of baggage, including mass illiteracy and mass poverty, a colonial hangover, lack of institutions and infrastructure.

Not that any of this is an excuse to justify oppression, but India was still a baby then, and had huge challenges to deal with on multiple fronts. It had a history of feudalism that ensured a master-slave mentality between the haves and have-nots.

Today, many decades later, it’s not unfair to expect India to have matured more as a democracy. With more concern for people’s rights and freedoms, a greater regard for the dignity of every individual.

And yet how much have we really matured as a democracy?

We keep thumping our chests, claiming to be the world’s largest democracy. But what should democracy really mean?

Many think it is the right to vote.
But is that all there is to a democracy?
The right to vote?
That’s too narrow and limiting a function of a democracy.

For me, in a democracy (as opposed to a dictatorship), each person has a voice, has a right to express an opinion.

In fact, voting is one way of expressing your opinion.
But it’s just ONE way.

When farmers go on a nationwide protest to draw attention to their issues, they are also exercising their right to express themselves.

When citizens protest on the streets against what they believe to be an unfair law, they are similarly exercising their right to express themselves.

As long as the protests are peaceful, they are legitimate in a democracy.

In fact, even before independence, Gandhi ji and other leaders led peaceful protests against colonial rule. So it is nothing new in India.

Many of Sahir’s songs are actually a protest against exploitation by those in power. Imagine if he were not allowed to express his thoughts!

Do we even want such a society?

Do we want everyone to be a blind conformist, not to have independent thoughts of his own, to be fearful of expressing himself, to kowtow to those in power without a murmur?

Then we might as well just call ourselves a nation of slaves.

There’s no point in a nation being free, if its people aren’t.

A nation is nothing without its people.

And people, whether some of us like it or not, have the power to think.

And when they think, they might not exactly think in our way.

Just because we have power, it doesn’t entitle us to stifle their voice.

That goes against the very grain of a democratic mindset, in which each person has a voice.

Unless the person is inciting violence, no one has the right to shut him up.

Not even the State.

If you disagree, put forth a better argument to make your case.

Don’t use your brute power to threaten, intimidate or (in the case of the State)  arrest those you disagree with.
Just because you can.
That’s sheer abuse of power.

This has nothing to do with any particular political party. Many of them are guilty in their own ways of suppressing people’s voices.

If they get their way, what will we end up with?

A people living in fear, afraid to express an opinion that might be frowned upon by those in power.

Everyone becoming a conformist – whether by choice, or out of sheer fear.
In short, a nation of sheep.

Is that what we want?

Let’s pause, and reflect on this for a moment.

Speaking purely for myself, I like to express my views rather openly, even if they’re not exactly reflecting popular sentiment of the moment.

If I have to check myself every time, out of fear for repercussions, I’d feel extremely stifled.

As Sahir would too.

There are many more topics one can reflect on (and Avinash ji’s thoughts traversed many of them), but I’m limiting myself to just this one topic today because it sort of syncs with the song for today. Need to also leave material for future posts on Sahir, right? 🙂

Today’s song from ‘Naach Ghar’ (1959) is  Sahir’s sarcastic piece of advice to society.  “Just observe things happening, but don’t  speak up. Just let them happen. Don’t upset the apple-cart. Even call the dark of night, “day” if you need to”.

I quite like the rendition by Lata Mangeshkar.

Music is by N. Datta, for whom Sahir wrote excellent lyrics also for ‘Dhool Ka Phool’, also a 1959 film. And for ‘Dharmputra’ (1961). So theirs was quite a fruitful partnership.

In fact, I’ve already written a post for a song from Naach Ghar (1959) on the occasion of Sahir’s 500th song on this blog – “Tere Shehron Se Raja Hamen Ban Hi Bhaley

That is a straightforward lament, today’s song is a sarcastic take on society.

I like both songs a lot, but then I’m biased towards Sahir so my opinion should be taken with a truckload of salt. 🙂

So please listen to the song, and judge for yourself.

In closing, I’d like to say Sahir was one of a kind.  They don’t make his type anymore.

ए दिल जुबां न खोल सिर्फ देख ले

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

Hullo Atuldom

Some songs keep playing in our mind as if on loop. This I had said in one of my previous posts. Today’s song is one such.
I saw it consciously a number of times in the last few years. Consciously means I may have seen it in the ’70s or ’80s when these movies were aired on the doordarshan but I was not old enough to appreciate them or the meaning of their lyrics. But now on repeat viewing of the movie I am getting wiser. I had filed away (mentally) that this needs to be on the blog. So here it is.

“Sadhu Aur Shaitaan” a 1968 release had 4 songs all written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmi-Pyare were the music directors. Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.

Only one song has been posted on the blog. That one had Mehmood replaying his “hum kale hain toh kya hua” character. We had Mehmood mouthing the initial part of “Chunia, ari kidhar hai ri tu? Mere dil ki rani. Mere nawaason ki naani. aa gaya hoon main. arre dekh le main aa gaya permission leko”.

Today’s song has him giving gyaan about the importance of knowing one’s mother tongue in addition to learning “A B C D”. We should remember that this was a movie which came at a time when we had enough students opting for schools which were not essentially English medium. We should also remember that all those who trained in non-English medium schools were no less intelligent and we have many pioneers in various fields from those students too. I know I will be stirring a hornet’s nest if I talk about which is a better language for educating the masses of the country.

My personal feeling is that education should be in a language where in the parents also understand what the child is learning so that they are able to clarify doubts that the child has as he is studying. People may feel that my thoughts are very old fashioned but…..

Today happens to be the birth anniversary of Mehmood who would have been 88. He knew how to bring a smile on the viewer’s face, how to tickle their funny bone. He was the son of actor/dancer Mumtaz Ali and brother of dancer Minu Mumtaz (about whom our Sadanandji has written in his this post). His brother Anwar Ali was also an actor who paired with Mehmood in “Bombay To Goa” as Rajesh to Mehmood’s Khanna.

Mehmood took up odd jobs at a rather young age to help look after his large family which had 7 siblings. He decided to try acting to support his family once he married and had his first son and had his first break in “C.I.D” with a small role of the killer. He had other small unnoticed roles in “Do Bigha Zameen” “Pyaasa” etc. His innings in Bollywood was peppered with comic roles that were an essential part of the story and we often saw him drill sense into older characters towards the end of the movie.

I saw a part of “Meri bhabhi” (1969) this morning where he was doing just that as Shambu. But he was a class apart when he turned to movie making and gave us classics like “Bhoot Bungla”, “Padosan”, “Bombay To Goa” and the most poignant, message carrying of them all “Kunwara Baap”. His last movie released in 1996 “Dushman Duniya Ka” which he directed and Jeetendra headed the cast. It is interesting to note that Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan had special appearances in it.

Remembering the actor, producer, director Mehmood with this song sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 103 # In Remembrance – Hasrat Jaipuri & Mahendra Kapoor #
——————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from a debutant movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’. I was longing to introduce this movie on the blog since long but was not able to locate its songs and they seem difficult to find. Now they are available uploaded since last year i.e. 2019. Thanks to the uploader.

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Bhagyashri Productions, Bombay’. It was a ‘social movie’. It had Som Dutt, Komal, Kanhaiyalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Chaman Puri, Jayshree T., Renu, Sundar, Dhanraj Pahalwan, Rajnath, Bedi Sindhara, Lakshami Arya, Rajan Haksar, Uma Dutt, Y.N. Kapoor, Gopi Tak, Honey Irani, Master Ratan, Mehrunnisaa, Durga Khote and others.

This movie had six songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Sonik-Omi. Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, and Komal had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 09.11.1971.

17th September 2020 was the twenty-first Remembrance anniversary of Poet lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri (15.04.1922-17.09.1999). I was looking for a debutant movie then which has lyrics penned by him. However, I could not send my write-up then. Today we are going to introduce this movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein’ which have all songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri on the blog.

Today 27th September 2020 is the twelfth Remembrance anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor (09.01.1934-27.09.2008).

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ has Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in five songs i.e. in all songs except except one song of the movie. He has sung two solo, two duets and one song having voice of three singers.

As a tribute to Hasrat Jaipuri and Mahendra Kapoor today we listen to this song from the movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ composed by Sonik-Omi.

Only audio of this song is available and I hope it is full song. Also, I think this movie must have been an obscure movie of its and its songs were forgotten easily.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy this song.

(As mentioned above with this song ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ makes its debut on the blog today. (Only ‘one’ movie from alphabet ‘D’ from 1917 remains to be launched now to cover launching of all ‘D’ movies of ‘1971’ on the blog 🙂 )
