Hullo all Atulwaasis

I want to thank a few people who made me what I am. And the few means a small number of 25 or so teachers. Today (5 september 2017) is TEACHER’s Day.

During school days, we used to eagerly wait for this day. Those were the days when we didn’t have regular pocket money and we had to put an application to our parents for anything from Re. 1 to Rs. 5 (depending on what the class organizing committee would have set as the minimum individual contribution.)

The money so collected would then be meticulously divided among the various expenses viz :- decoration material for the class, gift for the class teacher and flowers for the other teachers who would come in during the day. The day also had some students from senior classes dressed up as teachers and they would be assigned to take up classes as substitutes for subject- teachers. Probably that was the way our teachers thought that we would get an experience of how students behave with teachers. All in all it would be a non-instructional working day. (I don’t know how the students these days celebrate teacher’s day.) Another day set aside for commemorating teachers in India and Nepal is Guru Purnima or Ashad Shukla Purnima which falls some time in July-August.

My favourite reference point Wikipedia tells me that teacher’s day is celebrated in many countries. It is a day of appreciating teachers for their special contribution in a particular field or community in general. The date varies from country to country (in most cases they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education) and World Teacher’s Day is on 5th October.

India celebrates Teacher’s day, since 1962, on 5th September in memory of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan whose birthdate it is. He was India’s first Vice President and second President; a distinguished scholar of comparative religion and philosophy. His philosophy was rooted in Advaita Vedanta, reinterpreting this tradition for a contemporary understanding. He was awarded several high awards including a knighthood in 1931, the Bharat Ratna in 1954, and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. Radhakrishnan believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”.

Mahesh Bhatt made a movie in 1993 with the title “Sir”.

Today’s song is written by Qateel Shifai. Anu Malik is the composer; Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Kumar Shanu are the singers. It is a stage song performed by Pooja Bhatt and Atul Agnihotri. Paresh Rawal, Mushtaq Khan and Naseer are in the audience.

This was the debut of Atul Agnihotri in movies and this is the debut of this movie on our blog. It is from Mahesh Bhatt’s 1993 movie with the title “Sir”. It is the story of a college teacher ‘Naseeruddin Shah’ and his student ‘Pooja Bhatt’ who has a stammering problem. But since this was a Bollywood movie the story has many side tracks like love between two students, opposition of the father, and gang war added in for good measure.

P.S. How I wish I could have sent this to my English teacher from school for correcting and marking me as she did so many years back on all my essays. Remembering and missing all of them today.

This was a post I had written last year to be posted on teacher’s day. A few things have changed in my life since- (1) I managed to track down my English teacher mentioned herein and also visited her the last time I went to Chennai. Also, I am happy that I am in regular touch with her so I will actually, be able to forward this to her for her opinion. (2) my son has become a college lecturer.

In India, we are often required to attend get togethers (formal/ officials as well as informal/ unofficial etc). Singing of a few film songs is almost always a part of these gatherings, which are sung by enthusiastic singers and their performances are followed by polite clappings.

The songs that are sung on these gatherings are mostly from the golden era originally sung by legends. I often think of that era when these legends were still around me. I would often imagine a gathering where songs were sung not by the enthusiastic singers but by the singers who originally sang these songs. Just imagine participating in a programme where Rafi songs are being sung live by none other than Rafi himself !

Have you ever wondered. . .

how a song gets constructed?

and why a song is termed as a tip of the iceberg?

You must now be thinking – this is a peculiar but a very interesting intro to the 134th century post on the blog. So yes, before getting into the discussion on the proposed topic, congratulations are in order. Welcome all to the 13 thousand 4 hundredth post on our blog. The musical bandwagon rolls on – toiling, pleasing, emotionally invigorating – it continues to move tirelessly. Because. . . because music – must be there. The world, this nature – all are moving to a rhythm, and a melody. Music is instilled in everything every entity we know, we touch, we think of. But come to think of it, we do not often think of this world that way i.e. music in everything, everyday of our lives. We are so consumed with the process of existence and living day to day, that we forget to stop and smell the flowers (or smell the coffee, if you are in America). And the music of life gets hidden behind the other sundries. Often we forget to think about it.

Today (30 june 2017) is the birth anniversary of Kalyanji (30 june 1928-24 august 2000 ) of the well-known Kalyanji-Anandji music composer duo. Or K-A, in short. I’ve written here on the occasion of the anniversary of several artistes. Composers, lyricists, actors, directors.  In fact most of my posts here are to do with some occasion or the other.

Today, 21st June is designated as the World Music Day. The reminders checked in quite late in the afternoon today. The historical details about this event are available on the internet, and our dear Arun ji has also summarized them in a brief post on the Whatsapp group.

As I set down thinking about this event, and to search out an appropriate song for today, my mind almost immediately went to the 1985 film ‘Sur Sangam’.  In my mind, this is probably the best film on the theme of classical music, in the recent decades. Times are past that classical music and the legends of this art form used to be the central themes of many a film, especially from the historical perspective, in the decades that coincide with the golden era of Hindi film music. Historical persona such as Tansen and Baiju, Narsi Mehta and Meerabai, Kalidas and Soordas, Kabir and Rani Roopmati have been central themes and central characters of many a film till the decade of 1970s. Beyond that, I cannot easily recall a film whose theme and storyline is based primarily on classical music.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today we will have a song from the 1957 L.V. Prasad directed Meena Kumari- Raj Kapoor- Shyama starrer ‘Sharada’ – written as ‘Shaarda’ by Atulji in the ‘List-of songs-moviewise’. It is mentioned as ‘Sharada’ in the filmography of Meena Kumari (a rule in English grammar says that proper nouns can be written with any spelling, specially there is no right or wrong spellings as far as Indian words are concerned).

It is believed that one needs to train hard and later work hard to become anything in life. But in India, people try to avoid hard work and want to succeed overnight. People trying to use “approach” to please higher ups-be they top officials or gods, instead of working to qualify for the job, is common.
