Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 02
———————————————————————-

wo dil jo maine maangaa thaa magar gairon ne paayaa thaa
badi shai hai agar, uski pashemaani mujhe de do

Yesterday I visited the page again on the song ‘Tum Apna Ranj o Gham, Apni Pareshaani Mujhe De Do‘. I know the words are ‘badi shai hai agar‘, on which there is the long thread of comments. ‘Shai’, in common urdu is a thing or an object.  ‘badi shai hai ‘ literally means , its a big thing or a big deal.  As it is said in English that ‘its a big deal for me’ or means a lot to me.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 5
—————————————————–

The carrying capacity of this man is amazing. There is an aura about him that continues to draw the audiences. The measure of his success and popularity is pretty much sustained, as his fans continue to return to the cinema/video time after time after time. I believe that the secret behind this sustenance has been his capacity to re-invent himself, and his portrayals.

I must frankly admit that I have kept away from the mainstream cinema, mostly after the seventies faded away, and a new order both in terms of performers, as well as music, came on to the scene.  The time also coincided with the years amounting to almost two and a half decades that I was traveling, and away from India most of the time.  The viewing of current films was random and patchy at the best, and that I never went out of my way to acquire and watch a current film.  Unless it was recommended to me, and that too, by someone whose judgement I would trust.

Hindi movie songs cover lots of ground as far as depicting various human feelings as well as activities of Indians are concerned. But there are still a few regular activities that have been sadly underrepresented. For instance, there are hardly any songs for an activity as common as buying and selling of vegetables.
