This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.

Blog regulars report that when they finally meet another blog regular in person for the first time, it never appears to them that they are meeting for the first time. It appears that they have known each other for years.

Secondly, it is reported that the persons they meet look extremely humble and self effacing, despite possessing extraordinary abilities that we in the blog are privy to for years.

I have never met Prakashchandra. Others too have not met him. That way he is as elusive a regular as our Avinash Scrapwala used to be once upon a time till he broke his hoodoo and became quite a regular gangouter as he suddenly went on a gangout attending spree, meeting other regulars at Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai.

Prakashchandra may not have met others face to face, but it appears to me (and to others as well) that we know him for years.

Prakashchandra started his association with the blog as a farmaish sender and he was soon hailed as a farmaish king by Peevesie’s mom. A sensitive person that he is, he once felt that his long list of farmaishes were being resented by some regulars. I had to assure him that it was not the case.

Prakashchandra reminded me so much of the Jhumri Tilaiyya farmaish senders of yore. 🙂

His farmaishes sometimes caused me to post songs that I was not aware of and which were rare songs.

Prakash Chandra once (in late 2010) mentioned about a song, which was an ideal song to listen to late at night, but he had not been able to locate the song. So he was only able to listen to this song on radio, once in six months or so. He hoped that I would be able to locate this song and discuss it in the blog.

His description made me very curious about this song, and I spent one whole day to search for this elusive song. Finally I managed to find this rare song.

Prakash Chandra was right. This song was indeed an ultimate Chhaayaageet song. Very few people may have heard this song till then. If one listens to this song twice, then from the second time onward, this song grows up on you.

And that is how I posted this song from “Girls’ Hostel” (1962) in the blog.

And pat came the effusive thanks from Prakashchandra

“Aapne woh kaam kar diya, ke main bayaan nahin kar sakta, ke main aapse kis kadar khush hoon”
thanks thanks thanks, tahank a zillion times
love you love you love you
prakash

Not just him, quite a few other music lovers exclaimed that they re discovered this forgotten gem after decades, thanks to this post. Of course, the thanks were due to Prakashchandra.

Reading prakashchandra’s comments in the blog, where he bares his heart about his feelings on the blog and his association with the blog never fails to warm the hearts of the readers.

From night 11`o clock and to 12`o clock,Now It is a compulsive habit to sit and writing the lyrics .

School ki homework bhi main itni maze lekar aur itne devotion ke saath nahin kartaa thaa 🙂

1 month ago, when I lost Internet connectivity to the blog for 5 days, I felt ,How much I am attached to you guys. I missed you guys and the blog terribly. I love you all guys.

I have silently,learnt many things from all of you guys through your writings, thoughts.I owe many a things to this blog and you people.Really I mean it.

Meri likhaawat yaa kissee aur cheez se unconsciously, koyee bhool, chhook ho toh mujhe sabhi maaf kar do, Please..

Par itnaa pyaar hameshaa aap sab logon se miltaa rahe, yehi bhagwaan se main maangtaa hoon.

Prakashchandra has indepth knowledge of songs. He knows the differences in the lengths of the audio version and movie version of a particular song. Every single second of the song matters to him. His day is made if one could provide a song link that is a few seconds longer than those available online. Just a few days back, he commented that his sunday was made when I posted a longer audio of a song of “Geet” (1970).

Prakashchandra is not just a lyrics sender. His contributions contain lots and lots of additional information about the movie, songs and artists as well. He is also an expert in identifying old forgotten actors that few people have even heard of. We have seen “CID” TV serial, where every eye witness is able to give a very accurate description of suspects, even though they may have seen them only once and that too for just a few seconds. Prakashchandra is like those “CID” TV serial witnesses with photographic memories. 🙂

Prakashchandra is also aware about Hindi movies that are remakes of South Indian movies and vice versa. His contributions contain lots of such difficult to find nuggets of information.

Prakashchandra tends to be a little unsure of himself and is always very particular to make sure that he does not hurt the feelings of others. He feels that refuting the views of others, providing incorrect information, seeking information, or making suggestions to others would somehow hurt the feelings of others, and so he is a bit apologetic while posting his comments. 🙂

He seeks pardon when he corrects others, and also when he asks for information. While giving information, he mentions that he is “only” 99.9 % sure of his identifications. 🙂 Some regulars would exhort him to be more assertive in such matters. 🙂 He is afraid of hurting the feelings of others even when he is giving a suggestion to them/ complimenting them. 🙂

Prakashchandra also regularly goes through old posts. when he finds something amiss (like say dead links, or incorrect information), he points them out in his comments.

Despite enormous knowledge of HFM and despite his considerable contributions in the blog, Prakashchandra remains humble and self effacing.

Prakashchandra has so far not met any regulars. He may be feeling that other regulars are overachievers and he himself is not. He has been very accurately described as akin to a “Kasturi Mrig” by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia. Just as a Kasturi Mrig is not aware of his own fragrance, Prakashchandra is not aware of his own over achievements in the field of HFM research. I am sure that other regulars, including myself, would count ourselves as lucky when we get to meet the person behind such enormous achievements and abilities.

We in this blog have regulars who are valuable “Ratna” (gems) in the field of HFM appreciation. Each of these individuals brings his/ her own special qualities to the blog and enriches it immensely. Prakashchandra is one of the priceless gems that we in this blog have. His immense knowledge, yet his humility is so heart warming to see. He has sent me lots and lots of contributions and many of them have not yet been covered. Some of his contributions have been covered several years after they were first sent. In addition, some of his contributions were credited to others because others had also sent lyrics of the same songs. Even when Prakashchandra feels hurt on not getting credits for some of the songs that he may have sent, he always remains magnanimous and continues to contribute to the blog with a Yogi like stoicism. These are qualities that are worth emulating, and I must say that I find these qualities highly admirable and I too try to adopt such qualities in my life.

It is a matter of privilege for this blog that Prakashchandra completes 1000 song contributions in the blog with this song. It is a tremendous achievement. He becomes the first among our song contributors to breach the four figure mark.

The 1000th song of Prakashchandra in the blog is from “Kaaran”(1981). This song is sung by Yesudas. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The song is picturised as a romantic background song on Shoma Anand and Raj Kiran.

I, on behalf of the blog take this opportunity to congratulate him and thank him for being with us in this musical journey. I am sure that we will see lots and lots of contributions from him in the future as well. It is a great feather in the cap of Prakashchandra as well as the blog. I am sure that we will continue to have many more such landmarks from our contributors in future as well.

As blog milestones go, century milestones of this blog no longer attract as much attention as they used to attract in the past. The fact that there have been as many as 129 such occasions may have led to this “familiarity breeds indifference” attitude on the parts of the regulars.

As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

hazaaron khwaahishen aisi
ke har khwaahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mere armaan
magar phir bhi kam nikle

roz aise hi hota hai, it happens almost every day. Every day, there is a song that comes to mind, or a song that someone reminds me of, or a ‘new’ old song that I get to hear – a song that is not yet on the blog, or maybe not yet online even. There is an immediate urge, a rush to sit down at my desk and finger type a new post on my laptop. And also upload it online, if need be. Many a time I even start it. The melody continues to hum in the mind. Always overlaid on to another melody that is now a fixture in the backdrop, a melody that you have heard me mention often in my writings – ye hansta hua kaarvan zindagi ka na poochho chala hai kidhar

The counter has been stuck at double one triple nine, for three days now. That, I am sure, will have beaten all the records in the books.

As I am musing to start this write up, the two special things that come to mind are auspiciousness and unity.

Samajhne waale samajh gaye hain
Naa samjhe. . .
🙂 🙂

But it is not so that only these two thoughts are flowing in the mind.  Another thought that enters the mind is flee, escape, take flight etc. etc.  Haan, wo bhi hota hai.

I hope you are still with me. 🙂 🙂

Yes, you are right.  I am trying to start the writing of the post for the very very special occasion of today.  We have touched the next Massive milestone after THE MASSIVE milestone that we hit in July of 2014.  It has taken us eight months and eleven days to reach here.  . . . .Ooooops, I said it, when I was not even intending to say it.  But then the calendar is a calendar and if it has taken eight months and ELEVEN days to reach here, then that is what it is – it HAS taken ELEVEN days + eight months to get to today’s milestone.

Writeup by Atul
————————–
So the eagerly awaited moment is here. It was planned to happen on 19 july 2014, on the sixth anniversary of the blog, but that was not to be and it has finally happened one day later. Paucity of time necessitated by urgent personal and even official engagements/ matters were the cause for this delay by one day. I also had to reluctantly defer three eagerly awaited writeups, viz introductory posts on M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh, Raja and Sudhir ji. They very graciously agreed to have their introductions deferred in view of the circumstances. I am very thankful for their understanding.

If one notices, the lion’s share of the writeups for the last few days have been done by Sudhir ji. He has been spending unimaginable hours on the blog for the last few days despite being tied up in his own personal and professional engagements. And this 10000th post is very much a result of his own initiative, meticulous research and hard work. My heartfelt thanks goes to Sudhir ji without whom this blog would not be what it is today.

Yesterday, just like that, I googled ‘nine thousand’. Did not expect to find anything really interesting and useful to write about. After all, it is just another number. But really, I was surprised. Wow, never thought I would find such an interesting information description that would be so appropriate for this huge milestone that we have arrived at today.

This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog. This is the 2000th song of Rafi discussed in the blog.

Truly, a man for all seasons, and a voice for all reasons. A person like him comes maybe once in a millennia. And a voice like his is probably a unique manifestation of God’s own will, maybe once in the sustenance of an entire creation. It seems as if the poet Iqbaal wrote his famous couplet for him, and him alone.

This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog. With this, the blog reaches the figure of 8000 songs.

Chris Gayle’s recent record breaking feat in the 20/20 match at Bangalore, nowhere near compares with Atul ji’s performance on this blog. 😀 😀

I would challenge Chris Gayle to continue scoring this way, even for just one more match. Oh, I am so confident that he will not be able to repeat his performance. Not very soon, and neither so convincingly. But on our blog, the centuries being posted by Atul ji are remarkable – consistent, and incessant in their regularity. Just two weeks, give or take a day, and there we are, another century notched up on the board.
