khoobsurat haseen, koi tujh sa nahin
aate hain nazar aise chehre magar
kabhi kabhi
kahin kahin

Greetings to Asha Parekh ji, on completing 75 illustrious years, with all but 10 of them, in the film (and TV) industry.

The years have come and gone by, but the grace, the radiance, and smile is still the same. Having made her debut as a child star at the tender age of 10, it indeed has been a very fruitful and a prolific inning that she has played. The wires carried the news today in the day that her autobiography (co-authored with Khalid Mohammed) was released today. The title of the book is ‘The Hit Girl’. I am sure no explanation needs to be rendered for the title. Starting with ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ in 1959, there is a long list of hit films in which she has played the female lead role, all the way till the mid 1970s, when she moved into senior and supporting roles. The list of films reads like the ‘Best of 1960s/70s’. The list contains a ton of favorites. And I am sure all of us have a few on this list, that we will pick as our favorite films.

My love affair with Asha ji started with the song “O Mere Sona Re Sona Re Sona Re”. Film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966). Too much of a small pre-school/early school kid that I was, this is one of the earliest memories that I carry of having seen a film on big screen. Not yet trained in the discussions of the finer details of music and instruments, those were the days that the melody would fall into the ears and the mind would capture it instantaneously and store it in the neurons forever. The music of ‘Teesri Manzil’ had this first impact on my nascent mind. Soon the brainwaves would be crowded with thousands of songs that the mind soaked in from listening to the radio. But the music of ‘Teesri Manzil’ – let me ask you, what would you do with your first out-of-this-world music experience. An yes, right, you will store it forever, and play it often.

Watching the film, I had an additional impact. Most of the films memories and emotions have been built and retained from watching it again and again over the years. But that first viewing in the big and dark cinema hall, with the larger than life images thrown on to the huge white screen – the memory that is retained is of this young, very beautiful girl singing “O Mere Sona. . .”, and making an all out effort to pacify a gentleman named Shammi Kapoor, who seemed to be upset and angry.

The mind at that time was too unfamiliar with the grown up emotions, to appreciate that the two characters on screen are in the process of falling in love. All I know is that I took an intense fancy to this young lady singing on the screen. Her expressions, her vitality, her antics took my heart away, and in its place, left her own images, that I remember, I would ruminate (yes, sorry, I did not know these words at that time; I am articulating them now) and dwell upon for weeks and months. In short, if I knew then and understood the grown-up emotions, I would have happily declared that I was in love. The expressions in this song are so natural, so much in flow, so much coming from the bottom of a playful and naughty young heart, that I believed all I saw on the screen. And simply fell in love.

Being what I was, a pre school small child, I did not know what to do with that fancy. All I know is that I would think about her, and this song I witnessed in the cinema hall. I would think about her often; likely that it was more often than often. I just liked being with her thoughts, and being with her in thoughts. I would fancy that we would meet, that we would be together. I did not know then, what else to do with that fancy. Other than the thing that I quite enjoyed to be in her company in thoughts. The song and its associated images would continue to replay on the screen of the mind, all the time. Yes, that is what it felt like, being in love.

I remember it took some months for this fancy to wear off. The song, the antics, the images in the mind – all of that was intact, and still is. Just that, that unnamed craving to be with her in person, quite faded away, and settled down into a liking in the heart, that would say – she is my favorite. Maybe so – maybe it was another fancy that would steal my attention away (more about that later 😉 ). But I do know that the fancy strongly lasted well for many months.

As I was looking to replay this episode, and searching for a suitable song, I happened to chance upon this song, that was quite unfamiliar for me before I heard it with some attention earlier today. I remember that ‘Saajan’ (1969) was not one of those films that I had watched in its original run. With limited opportunities to watch new releases in the cinema hall, I had very little say in which movies to see. As i played this song today, the lines that immediately caught my attention, are the ones I have noted at the beginning of this article.

khoobsurat haseen, koi tujh sa nahin
aate hain nazar aise chehre magar
kabhi kabhi
kahin kahin

That there is none so beautiful
And so charming as you are
Faces, enchanting as much as yours
Are surely seen at times
But oh so rarely
And oh so scarcely

Oh so true, and so well in tune with that fancy of mine years ago. A face so charming as hers, a screen presence so appealing as hers, comes by quite rarely, quite once in a while.

An eminent celebration for this gorgeous milestone today, Asha ji. And I pray that there be many more such celebrations to come. May He endow good health and longevity upon you, and that you be khoobsurat haseen, forever.

Many many happy returns of today.

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.)

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.
