What kind of relationship must one have with their country? This is a question I have been pondering lately. There is no doubt one feels a sense of kinship and pride for the perseverance and accomplishments and bravery its people show on a near everyday basis. But then aren’t all these accomplishments a result of someone questioning some kind of status quo that existed in this country.

The world is feeling like a strange place. Ours isn’t the only country in the grips of a wave of nationalism that is based on a sense of othering and homogenizing our culture. But weren’t we taught ‘Unity in Diversity’  as one of our strengths in school? Independence day involved so many symbolic displays of things like ‘One Country, Many Cultures’; “Hindu Muslim Sikh Isaai, sab hai yahan bhai bhai”. One of my favourite lines to do the cringy school dances to was “Koi Punjab Se, Koi Maharashtra Se” one from the song “Ae Watan Ae Watan” (film ‘Shaheed’, 1965) – (though I hated the word Madrasi that was used in such displays, I am not from Madras!). And suddenly we have a country where questioning the status quo is being against the country.

Can’t one love the country and still dislike / disagree with somethings in it? We love our family and friends the same way no? The love is unconditional but there are things like maybe their lateness or forgetfulness that annoys us? Isn’t that what patriotism should be? An unconditional love that pushes us to work hard to improve our country so we are truly the best country in every metric?

Last year I saw a film called ‘Raazi’. It is based on the true story of an Indian spy who married into a Pakistani military family to help the Indian war efforts. Two plot points in the movie left a deep impression on me and on my patriotic sentiments. The first was when the ‘spy’ and her spouse have a conversation about why they both do what they do. And they both realize that they will always choose their birth country over their spouse. It’s just that their birth countries are different. The second point is this song I want to showcase in this post on independence day today. Incidentally this song is also titled “Ae Watan” .

This song in the film is supposed to be an Indian patriotic song being taught to Pakistani school children for a school function. Even though the song contains the opening lines (“Lab Pe Aati Hai Duaa. . .“) which is the national prayer of Pakistan. It was penned in 1902 by the legendary poet, Allama Iqbal. But by its very nature it is country neutral. It is sung in schools in Pakistan, as well as in some states in India. That’s when it hit me. The object of your emotion of patriotism – that is an accident of nature. You have no control over this. But you have control over what you do with it. And how you use the opportunity to leave the place you were born into, better than when you arrived into it.

There is a multitude of amazing things being done by Indians that we can be proud of – from sustainable sanitary solutions, to the moon mission, to Dutee Chand fighting the Olympic committee and her village simultaneously on accepting everything she was born with. Whether it’s is a medical condition or who she loves. This is a beautiful country that gained its independence because people refused to accept the status quo. And I choose to be proud of it without losing sight of how much further we have to go.

There is another reason I love this song, because the video reminds me of the Independence day celebrations we had in school and all the ways we practiced for it. Truly brings a certain nostalgia back

This song is “Ae Watan” from ‘Raazi’ (2018) which is directed by Meghana Gulzar and produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions. Its based on a book by Harinder Sikka named ‘Calling Sehmat’. The film version of the song has Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Amruta Khanvilkar. The song is composed by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy, while its lyrics are written by Gulzar. Its female version, which is the one featured in the film, is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and the male version which was for promos is by Arijit Singh. Both versions have longer audio versions than video. The lyrics given below are according to the audio versions I have.

Happy Independence day to all readers! Enjoy!

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Same dates, last month, was a period of hectic activity. I believe pre-wedding period is the time when no one should check their BP. 🙂 I am often asked these days how does it feel after all the activity? Have you relaxed enough? Have you come to terms with the fact that your daughter is now married?

Phew!!! So many questions. Thinking of the last question- I don’t feel the difference; possibly because my daughter was already living away from home, due to her work, for almost 4 years now. She herself might answer like me. And to top it there is no custom of a “BIDAAI” in South Indian marriages, what we do is accompany the girl to her sasural and help her set-up home if she needs help in setting up. Also, in these modern ages when we are connected on an hourly basis through the various communication channels at our disposal, the feeling of the “daughter having got married” will never sink-in. The only complaint, well not exactly a complaint, is that after preparing for almost 4-5 months for the big day, it has come and gone and it is almost a month to the date.

Much like what students might feel at the end of their final year-end examinations!!! OH! Just realized the examinations for class 10 and 12 are about to begin in a week or two, for some it would have already started, ALL THE VERY BEST TO ALL THE STUDENTS their parents and teachers.

Now in the run-up to the wedding my husband had an idea that we should have some kind of entertainment for all those who come to attend the wedding. We were expecting many of our outstation friends and relatives on the previous day itself as the muhurta for the wedding was early and the guests might find it more convenient to reach the previous day, relax a bit and just have to wake up and get dressed for the big occasion. South Indian weddings are different from North Indian weddings in the sense there is no formal mehndi or sangeet attached with the rituals (South Indian weddings are rather staid). But we thought we might call a mehndi artist so that lady guests could have their hands adorned and there will be some pastime too where the grooms’ and bride’s family could mingle with each other.

Then there was also the bright idea to get the bright and talented kids and adults (who cared to join) to perform a song or dance which will further help kill time. We put our most enterprising and talented nieces and nephews on the job of hunting latent talent within the family and unanimously all of them decided that I should also, remove the dust cover and shake a leg or two. My only lament was that the dust cover was never removed and when I was called to do my ½ a minute thing on the stage I managed not to fall off it and also matched a few steps with my niece who had choreographed a rather simple number to one of the newer songs (which I had never heard of before the wedding eve.) I was happy we had a wonderful pre-wedding evening and no complained of boredom.

The whole dance and enjoyment reminded me of a song from the rather new (by the standards of this blog) movie “English Vinglish” (2012) which was directed by Gauri Shinde. The situation of the song was the wedding of Sridevi’s niece and the song shows the family practising some dance to be performed at the wedding. In fact, I had mentally practised a few steps to accompany the song if the DJ had played it (seems we only had to request, it was on his playlist) but we didn’t play it then. Since then it has been playing in my mind though. Then it struck me, as if a bolt from the blue, that we were close to Sridevi’s 1st death anniversary (its a year already!!!!! Time has flown really fast).

And so, here is the song which was Sridevi’s last dance number. There are no words to describe how beautiful she looked in that movie in the role of a homemaker whose husband and daughter keep pointing out her inability to speak in English. There are no words to describe how elegantly she carries herself in the saree and dance gracefully. Small wonder then, that people used to call her the only female superstar who could give all her co-actors a run for their money. In spite of this she was a much sought-after co-star who was comfortable and confident enough to be in the same frame as a Shivaji Ganesan, Dilip Kumar, Dharmendra, NTR, Rajkumar (of the south), or the actors of her age-group like Krishna (Telugu), Rajnikant, Kamal Hasan (Tamil), Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Mithun, Sunny Deol, etc. She was bold enough to refuse movies with Amitabh if her role in it lacked substance and Rajesh Khanna got help from her popularity in the period when he was trying to resurrect his career. And we don’t need to mention her movies with Jeetendra as they fall in a category of their own.

The song with this post is written by Swanand Kirkire and Amit Trivedi was the music director. We have Sunidhi Chauhan, Neelambari Kirkire, Natali DI Luccio, and Swanand Kirkire giving their voice to the song.
Thinking of our “Khwabon Ki Shehazaadi”.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Recently I read an interview of one of my favorite lyricist in the Bangalore Times which was conducted on the sidelines of Bangalore Poetry festival 2017. Every time I read or hear him I start admiring him all the more. Last year on the occasion of his birthday I heard him on Gaana.com (an app supporting continuous song playback) and I was floored by his thought process. There he had said “I don’t like to say things like ‘Hamaare zamaane mein ye hua karta tha. . .’. One shouldn’t lament about the fact that the current generation isn’t repeating what they did. At least they aren’t repeating your mistakes in the process.”  He further went on to say “what do people mean hamaara zamaana, as long as you are living it is your ZAMAANA”. That is a nice way to look at life.

In his recent interview, he has said “Lyrics is commissioned work, it is my profession. But poetry is my statement to life. Something that I feel, I know, something that I have acquired from life, that is my statement, my poetry.” He further added “Film depends on something. It is like a job or work, something that I’ve been asked to do with perfection. For some particular situation, in a particular story, for some character. Here (for poetry) it depends on your (Gulzar’s) hard work on that character.” That was a nice way to explain difference between lyrics and poetry.

What I am doing is wishing the master of words- a poet, lyricist and film maker a very Happy 83rd birthday.

This song is dedicated to all fans of Gulzar who follow our blog. It is for the special attention of our Rajaji. I had just heard it before our first ever Gangout and I had mentioned it there. And he claimed ignorance about its existence. I don’t blame him for that or any of our fellow Atulites who are not forced to listen to the songs from this generation. I will never say that I am forced to listen to songs of the present times.

I heard this song over three/four years back (don’t remember where). I rushed home and searched for it on Google. And made my Peevesie listen to it and she said “haan, I have heard it. It’s a Gulzar song.”  So much for my excitement that I had discovered something which she may not yet heard. But the song has stayed with me since then. I stop surfing channels if I hear the song anywhere –TV or Radio. Its a very catchy song. Reminds one of “Mera Kuch Saaman Tumhaare Pass Pada Hai” from the Gulzar – RD Burman combo ‘Ijaazat’ of 1988. Only thing this one is from 2013 and has Gulzar collaborating with Vishal Bharadwaj in ‘Ek Thi Daayan’. It is in the voices of Sunidhi Chauhan and Clinton Cerejo.

Gulzar and his poetry never ceases to amaze me. He is always with the times. For an eighty-year-old his lyrics are always young. His ability to play with words is worth noting. . . ”Badli Hata Ke Chanda Chupke Se Jhaanke Chanda” from “Mora Gora Ang Laile” – ‘Bandhini’ (1963); “Aankhon Mein Neend Na Hoti, Aansoon Hi Tairte Rehte” from “Koi Hota Jisko Apna” – ‘Mere Apne’ (1971); to the modern day ”Ankhen Bhi Kamaal Karte Hai, Personal se Sawaal Karte Hain” from “Kajraare Kajraare” from ‘Bunty Aur Babli (2005); or the lines “Ho Itni Sardi Hai Kisika Lihaaf Laile Ja Padosi Ke Chulhe Se Aag Laile” from “Beedi Jalaile” – ‘Omkaara’ (2006); or the Oscar winning “Aaja Zariwale Neele Aasman Ke Tale” from “Jai Ho” – ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ (2008); – what a range. This young man has been in the industry since the sixties and shows no signs of regret (Bollywood was not part of his plans for life back then).

So here is wishing Sampooran Singh Kalra alias Gulzar Deenvi (after his birthplace Dina which is now in Pakistan) or simply put Gulzar Saab a very Happy Birthday.

With this song I also propose to wish Sunidhi Chauhan a belated Happy Birthday. It was on 14th August. More about her in a later post.

 

Song – Hum Cheez Hain Bade Kaam Ki Yaaram (Ek Thi Daayan) (2013) Singer – Sunidhi Chauhan, Clinton Cerejo, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Vishal Bhardwaj
Chorus
Huma Qureshi

Lyrics

hum cheez hain
bade kaam ki yaaram
hamen kaam pe
rakh lo kabhi yaaram
hum cheez hain
bade kaam ki yaaram

ho oo
suraj se pehle jagaayenge
aur akhbaar ki sab surkhiyan
hum gun gunaayenge
pesh karenge garm chai phir
koi khabar aayi napasand to
end badal denge
ho oo munh khule jamhaai pe
hum bajaayen chutkiyaan
dhoop na tum ko lagey
khol denge chhatariyaan
peechhe peechhe din bhar
ghar daftar mein le ke chalenge hum
tumhari faailen
tumhari diary
gaadi ki chaabiyan
tumhari enaken
tumhara laptop
tumhari cap phone
aur apna dil
kanwaara dil,
pyar me haara bechaara dil
aur apna dil
kanwaara dil,
pyar me haara..aa..aa..aa

arey lyrics nahin aate mujhe

Ta..daa!)

pappaa rappaa

ye kehne me kuchh risk hai yaaram
naraaz na ho ishq hai yaaram
ho raat savere shaam ya dopehari
band aankhon me le ke tumhen
ungha karenge hum
takiye chaadar mehake rehte hain
jo tum gaye
tumhari khushboo soongha karenge hum
o zulf me phansi hui
khol denge baaliyan
kaan khinch jaaye agar
kha lenge meethi gaaliyaan
chunte chale pairon ke nishaan
ki un par aur na paanv padey
tumhari dhadkane
tumhara dil suney
tumhari saans mein
lagi kampkapi
na gajre buney
juhi mogra

हम चीज़ हैं
बड़े काम की यारम
हमें काम पे
रख लो कभी यारम
हम चीज़ हैं
बड़े काम की यारम

हो ओ
सूरज से पहले जगाएँगे
और अखबार की सब सुर्खियां
हम गुनगुनाएँगे
पेश करेंगे गरम चाय फिर
कोई खबर आई नापसंद तो
एंड बदल देंगे
हो ओ
मुंह खुले जम्हाई पे
हम बजाएँ चुटकियाँ
धूप ना तुमको लगे
खोल देंगे छतरियाँ
पीछे पीछे दिन भर
घर दफ्तर में ले के चलें हम
तुम्हारी फाइलें
तुम्हारी डायरी
गाड़ी की चाबियाँ
तुम्हारी एनकें
तुम्हारा लैप टॉप
तुम्हारी कैप फोन
और अपना दिल

प्यार में हारा बेचारा दिल

ये कहने में कुछ रिस्क है यारम
नाराज़ ना हो इश्क़ है यारम
हो रात सवेरे शाम या दोपहरी
बंद आँखों में लेके तुम्हें
ऊँघा करेंगे हम
तकिये चादर महके रहते हैं
जो तुम गए
तुम्हारी खुशबू सूंघा करेंगे हम
ओ जुल्फ में फांसी हुई
खोल देंगे बालियाँ
कान खिंच जाये अगर
खा लेंगे मीठी गालियां
चुनते चले पैरो के निशान
के उन पे और ना पाँव पड़े
तुम्हारी धड़कने
तुम्हारा दिल सुने
तुम्हारी सांस में
लगी कंपकपी
ना गजरे बुने
जुही मोगरा
तो कभी दिल
