Blog Day :

Today (4 november 2021) is the Deepaawali, the festival of lights.

Believe it or not, this happens to be the 14th deepaawali for the blog ! To last this long as a blog is quite an achievement.

During the occasions of previous deepaawalis, we have discussed as many as 37 deepaawali songs. All popular Deepaawali songs, including iconic songs have been covered in the past.

When I checked up the past Deepaawali articles, I realised that I had covered many interesting topics while discussing deepaawali. One of those topics was air quality or lack thereof. It is considered a topical subject because whenever Deepaawali arrives, messages spring up in Indian social media telling us that firecrrackers that we burst during deepaawali pollutes the environment.

Of late, there have been some studies that have pointed out that pollution in India is not because of Deepaawali, which lasts for just one day but because of other reasons, that take place over longer durations.

The real cause for pollution in India is like this- 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

There is this 80-20 principle, or Pareto principle which states that 20 percent activities give 80 percent of the results. So, we need to take care of these 80 % results and address the 20 percent activities that are causing them. So, if we in India are serious about improving air pollution, then we have to address the major contributors namely industrial activities, vehicle pollution and crop burning. Singling out Deepaawali, when 95 % of pollution is contribued by other activitites is hypocrisy and dishonesty on the part of these activists with selective agenda.

These activists would want us to believe that Indian cities are the most polluted and India is the most polluted country, because it is the only major country that celebrates Deepaawali.

I visited a site (iqair.com) that displays Air Quality index for major cities as well as nations. What I found in that site was quite revealing.

According to it, the top 15 most polluted cities of the world (at 8 AM on 4 november 2021) are :

SN Major City US AQI US AQI Classification
1 Lahore, Pakistan 289 Very unhealthy
2 Delhi, India 213 Very unhealthy
3 Beijing, China 199 unhealthy
4 Karachi, Pakistan 179 unhealthy
5 Kolkata, India 179 unhealthy
6 Shenyang, China 171 unhealthy
7 Dubai, United Arab Emirates 170 unhealthy
8 Mumbai, India 169 unhealthy
9 Wuhan, China 161 unhealthy
10 Dhaka, Bangladesh 160 unhealthy
11 Kabul, Afghanistan 158 unhealthy
12 Kathmandu, Nepal 152 unhealthy
13 Jakarta, Indonesia 150 unhealthy
14 Sofia, Bulgaria 139 unhealthy for sensitive groups
15 Kuwait City, Kuwait 132 unhealthy for sensitive groups

In the top 15 major cities, three Indian cities and one Nepali city figure. Other cities do not celebrate Deepaawali.

When I looked at the list of the most polluted countries in the world, I found that India is third in the list. The first two countries above India are our neighbours and they do not celebrate Deepaawali at all.

SN Country US AQI in 2020 (average) US AQI in 2019 (average) US AQI in 2018 (average) Population
1 Bangladesh 77.10 83.30 97.10 164, 689,383
2 Pakistan 59.00 65.80 74.30 220, 892,331
3 India 51.90 58.10 72.50 1,380,004,385
4 Mongolia 46.60 62.00 58.50 3,278,292
5 Afghanistan 46.50 58.80 61.80 38,928,341
6 Oman 44.40 5,106,622
7 Qatar 44.30 2,881,060
8 Kyrgyzstan 43.50 33.20 6,524,191
9 Indonesia 40.70 51.70 42.00 273,523,621
10 Bosnia Herzegovina 40.60 34.60 40.00 3,280,815
11 Bahrain 39.70 46.80 59.80 1,701,583
12 Nepal 39.20 44.50 54.10 29,136,808
13 Mali 37.90 20,250,834
14 China 34.70 39.10 41.20 1,439,323,774
15 Kuwait 34.00 38.30 56.00 4,270,563

So one can see that countries that do not celebrate deepaawali in their lands are even more polluted than India, the country that celebrates deepaawali. So the people who preach India about celebrating deepaawali should train their guns elsewhere if they are actually environment conscious.

It also shows that the reasons for pollutions lie elsewhere. It is indiscipline and third worldly lack of environmental awareness that is the major cause of pollution in these countries. Some of these countries claim to be progressing on the basis of vague figures of GDP per capita or Human development index, but when one looks closely, it turns out that these countries are plucking low hanging fruits, while disregarding pollution laws, minimum wages laws, safety laws etc.

If one wants to have an idea of the development of a country, the best way to gauge its development is its Air Quality Index(AQI). If one looks at the above tables, one finds that all the top polluting countries and cities are third world countries and their cities. Countries that are developed do not figure at the top. Even advanced nations neighbouring third world nations have good AQI while their neighbouring third world countries have poor AQI figures. Some examples of such advanced economies surrounded by third world economies are Israel and Singapore.

So unless a country addresses its environment and cleans up its air, it will not become a developed nation. India is definitely not going to become a developed nation any time soon, seeing its AQI. Same is true for China as well. Their GDP figures may look impressive, but it is gradually coming out that much of their GDP figures may be manipulated and fake. When one looks at AQI index of China, we find that China does figure among the top polluting nations, so it means that China is developing by disregarding enviroment. Sooner or later nature will get back at China. We can already see signs of that happening.

India needs to address its pollution problems, but for that, we first need to identify the real causes of pollution, instead of getting influenced by people with agendas.

I will discuss these matters in detail in future posts.

I have also discussed in the past that Deepaawali, where Goddess Laxmi is worshipped, is best celebrated if we worship Goddess Saraswati first. Worshipping Goddess Saraswati means getting educated, learning skills, upgrading our skills and becoming productive. Then we need to make use of our skills by producing goods and services, which is basically worshipping Lord Vishwkarma. When our goods and services get bought by consumers then we get money in return, or in other words, we are blessed by Goddess Laxmi.

Advanced nations, that figure low down in the list of polluting countries, follow the correct procedure of worshipping Goddess Laxmi. Much of their effort is on research and development (worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and then manufacturing goods or providing services ( worshipping Lord Vishwakarma). They do not consciously worship Goddess Laxmi, but Goddess Laxmi blesses them much more than she blesses Indians who seek to worship her just on the day of deepaawali, without first investing in worshipping Goddess Saraswati and Lord Vishwakarma.

So, I always try to tell my fellow Indians (who care to listen) that we are not worshipping Goddess Laxmi the right way. We need to worship her the way advanced Western countries worship her. Symbolic worship on one particular day will not do. Our worship should be round the clock throughout the year, and it should be to keep upgrading ourselves and keep giving goods and services that are in demand worldwide.

The festival of deepaawali, as it is celebrated in India, is easily the most important festival for Indian economy. Now that the effects of Covid 19 virus on India are receding, this deepaawali festival is likely to give a big boost to Indian economy, which is looking up after a forgettable year. I hope that the worst is over for India as well as the rest of the world.

On this occasion, I discuss a song from “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976). This movie was directed by Vijay Sharma for Pearl Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Anita Guha, Chaand Usmani, Sapru, Sujata, B M Vyas, S N tripathi, Renu, Sundar, Bharhchaari, Dilip Dutt, Neelam, Sheikh, Anant Marathe, Helen, Dalda, Hari Shukla, Narmada Shankar , Habeeb etc. The movie also had special appearances by Jagdeep, Mahipal and Jeewan.

“Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie. This son, the theme song of the movie, is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Kanan Kaushal and others.

With this song, “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deepaawali. Let us give our best (my way of worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and I am sure she will shower her wishes on us in abundant measure.

#the Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 8 # Usha Mangeshkar #
———————————————–———————————–—————— ——-

Welcome all to the eighth article in this series. Today’s voice is Usha Mangeshkar.
Today’s voice needs no introduction as all of us like minded people are aware about her family members and how she joined her elder sisters in singing for movies.
We are also aware of how she has carved a niche for herself among the many singers who ruled the hearts of millions of cine goers and HFM lovers in all these years.

A detailed write-up about Usha Mangeshkar has already been done by our inhouse encyclopedia Shri Arun ji in his post here.

I am reproducing the following text from his write-up (with his due permission) here.

Born on the 15th of December 1935, at Sangli, Usha is the 4th and the youngest sister of Mangeshkars. The line-up is very regular-exactly 2 year’s difference in the ages of the siblings-
Lata born in 1929
Meena born in 1931
Asha born in 1933
Usha born in 1935
Hridaynath born in 1937.

When master Deenanath died in 1942, Lata, all of 13 years, had to act and sing in films to earn money for the family. Meena, not so keen on singing chose to stay at home and look after the Mother and young Usha and Hridaynath. Asha joined her sister in acting, singing and earning money for the family. Usha was just 7-year-old, so she too remained at home. Besides singing, she was interested in Painting, so she took lessons from the famous painter of those days, M.R. Achrekar. In addition, she also continued learning Music from Pt. Tulsidas Sharma, K. Mahavir and Sushant Maharaj.

When Asha left suddenly and went away-in 1948- with Ganpatrao Bhonsle, twice her age, the family got a terrible jolt. The financial responsibility now fell only on Lata Mangeshkar. At the age of 19 years, Usha decided to start earning herself by singing in films and C. Ramchandra gave her the break with a song” Bhabhi aayee” from ‘Subah ka Tara’-1954. Her very first song became so popular that she was flooded with children’s song offers. Her next popular song was ‘Aplam chaplam’ from Azaad, also by C. Ramchandra.

Usha Mangeshkar’s voice was thereafter used for many children songs. For me, the oldest memory of her children song is the song from ‘Waapas-1969’ which I have presented on the blog and the song is ‘jhunjhuna jhunjhuna’.

Thereafter as I get involved more with Bollywood songs, I became aware of many of her earlier songs. Like when I came into the contact with this blog, and became a Sahir fan, I got to listened her duet song with Asha Bhonsle from the ‘1955’ movie ‘Devdas’ i.e., ‘o albele panchhi tera door thhikaana hai’.

She also got to sing many duet songs with her sister and other female singers in HFM. Many of such duets have been popular and are favorites of music lovers.

And then come the most important period of her singing careers which the ‘decade of seventies 1971-1980’.

During these years, her voice not only featured in many songs but her many songs become popular too. It will not be inappropriate to say that her singing career was at its ‘peak’ during the years of ‘seventies’. That was for Hindi as well as Marathi movies.

For Marathi movies her voice was there in every Dada Kondke movie which became ‘Jubilee Hits’. I remember many songs from such movies that were frequently played on loudspeakers everywhere during festivals and other programs.
Also, the songs from the movie ‘Pinjara-1972’ went on to became huge hits with her voice appearing in six of the nine songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

In 1975 came the movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ which was big hit and so were its songs. Usha Mangeshkar’s voice featured in three of the seven songs in this movie. All the three songs sung by her were popular among the masses. Music for this movie was composed by C. Arjun. The song ‘Main to aarti utaaroon re Santoshi Maata ki’ became hugely popular and it remained her all time big hit and highlight of her Hindi movie singing career.

In 1977 came the movie ‘Inkaar’ and its song ‘mungdaa mungdaa main gud ki dali’ was a runaway hit and it was also the favorite of almost each orchestra programs happening then.

I would also like to mention few of her songs here which I like very much.

‘Sainaath tere hazaaron haath’ from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba-1977’,

‘ye jeena hai angoor ka daanaa’ from the movie ‘Khatta Meethha-1977’,

‘mujhe pyaar ka tohfaa de ke’ from the movie ‘Kaalaa Patthar-1979’, which was not included in the movie,
‘sultaanaa sultaanaa mera naam hai sultaanaa’ from the movie ‘Taraanaa-1979’,
And in the later years songs like ‘goron ki naa kaalon ki’, the unforgettable ‘shaam rangeen huyi hai tere aanchal ki tarah’ … There might be other notable songs too which I might be missing here.

And that is the reason that Usha Mangeshkar, because of the many songs of her in the seventies, and many nostalgic moments for us, people like me, who were growing in the seventies, is the voice in this series.

And I must mention here the today’s song which is the very special song for me, as it still has the same effect on me, whenever I listen to it or watch it on the video or other video media.
When I was noting it down for this post and watching it I still get the goose-pimples, because of the singing of this song, the overall composition and the picturization of this song, that is embedded in my mind since my childhood. Specially the landing of Santoshi Maa in the ‘mrityu-lok’ from the ‘swarg-lok’ 😊

So, even if Usha Mangeshkar had sung only this song, she would still have the voice for me in this series for the nostalgia associated with this song for me.

This song is from the 1975 movie ‘Jai Santosh Maa’. Lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep and music is composed by C. Arjun.

On screen this song is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal and many others with Anita Guha as Santoshi Maa can be seen in the picturization of this song.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma. It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’. Bharat Bhushan makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and that is exactly the same day forty-six years back. I checked, it was Wednesday on this date and may be the movie was released the coming Friday after that. (Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this).

(Editor’s note- The movie was released on 15 August 1975, which was a friday-and India’s independence day. Another movie called “Sholay”(1975) was also released on the same day.)

Today is Friday and what a better day to present this song today.

Let us now listen to this wonderful song…

I hope you like the song as I do. 😊

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)–Song No.101
———————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 december 2010) saw seven songs getting covered from seven movies. First song of the day was covered at 9:19 AM and the final song at 1:01 PM. So unlike other days, when all songs would get covered before 10 AM, this day I struggled to publish the songs of the day.

Here are the details of the seven songs covered that day:-

Blog post number Song Movie (year) Remarks
3374 Tum kyaa jaano more maathe ki bindiyaa ka mol Kaneez(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
3375 Muhabbat par bahaar aati jahaan gulzaar ho jaataa Shair (1949) Movie YIPPED by now
3376 Duniyaa waalon badaa hai mushqil apne dil ko todnaa Chhoti Bhaabhi(1950) Seven songs covered out of nine
3377 Dil le gaya ji koi dil le gayaa Sanam(1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
3378 Mere chaand mere laal re Deewaana(1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
3379 Aji o suno to 12 O’clock(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
3380 Ham jee lenge bin tumhaare…tum meri zindagi ho Dillagi (1966) 4 songs covered out of 7

One can see that five out of seven movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

“Dillagi”(1966) is one of the unYIPPEED movies and so it is one of the two movies eligible for blog ten year challenge today.

“Dillagi”(1966) was produced by Tony Walker and directed by S Bannerjee for Golden Films, Bombay. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Bela Bose, Johny Walker, Nazima, Vijay Kumar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar, Keshav, Khurshid, Hammad, Tuntun, Moolchand, Pravin Paul, Tony Walker, Bela Bose, Zeb Sultana, Shabana, Roop Kumari, Ravi Kant, Ratan Gaurang, Tulsi, Aziz, Maqsood, Manjeet, Abdul Jabbar, Suresh, N.Misra, Samarlal Damani, Ajay Kumar, Abdul Kader, Baxi, Shrfu, Edwina etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it and four of these songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Dillagi”(1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Musc is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The fun teasing song is picturised as a party song on Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Tony Walker or Vijay Kumar, Chinoo Shikari, Edwina etc.

I heard this fun song during my early childhood and I loved the lyrics, especially the words kabootar kabootar thrown in the lyrics for no apparent reasons other than to make it a fun song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4528 Post No. : 16089

15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).

I have actively looked songs on ‘dheere dheere’ theme and have found a few good songs from 50’s decade. In this process, I found many songs which suit this theme and are already posted, apart from some famous songs which I had listed in an earlier post of this series.

Here is the list :

Song Movie
Ho dheere dheere chadh gaya nadi mein paani Aagosh
Dheere dheere bol Actress
Dheere dheere aare baadal Kismat
Dheere dheere dhal ri chanda Angulimaal
Saawan ki ghataaon dheere dheere aana Aage Badho
Mora dheere se ghoonghat hataaye piya Bharthari
Dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi Bhai Bahan

I have searched for songs with the words ‘dheere dheere’ in the first line of the mukhda. If I found especially appealing songs with the words ‘aahista aahista’ or ‘dheeme dheeme’ or ‘haule haule’ I have included them in the series, as these terms also mean the same in spirit at least, if not the dialect. Then there are some songs with the words ‘halka halka’ also, but I have considered them so far as the words ‘halka halka’ imply ‘mildness’, diverse from ‘dheere dheere’ or ‘aahista aahistaa’.

Present post in the series is for this female solo song from Piya Milan(1958). P Ramesh Naidu, is the music director of this film and Lyricist is Harsh. Myswar is not giving singers name for this song, whereas the singer’s names are given for all other songs. Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and P. Susheela are credited with the other songs.

Three songs from ‘Piya Milan’1958 are posted :

Song Date of posting
O saathi re tu aa bhi jaa 18 June 2013
Kya kya kahoon re Kaanha 3 February 2016
Yaad aa ke hardam sataaye 24 May 2018

Here is blog tally for both P. Ramesh Naidu and Harsh :

Artist Songs in the blog
P Ramesh Naidu 5
Harsh 6

The name of the singer is not available, only thing I can say for sure is it is not Lata Mangeshkar’s voice, having heard it umpteen times for getting the lyrics right. At times it sounds a bit like Usha Mangeshkar, but it can also be P. Susheela, whose voice I don’t recognize.

The song is quite catchy, with a nice tune, though the sound quality is poor. May be Prakashchandra ji will find some audio link with better sound.


Song-Pawan chali dheere dheere phool khile re (Piya Milan) (1958) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Harsh, MD-P Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re
haan haan
phool khile re
kaise phool khile re
bhanwar uss ko dekh
naachh uthhaa
gale mila re
lo ji
gale mila re
dil se nikle ??
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band

man ka mera hai tu raajaa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band
aaj mujhe
prem milan ki hai bekhudi
aa aaa
aaj mujhe se
man man kyun hai bekhudi
dil mein rehna sanam
dil mein rehna sanam
o ji o
de qasam
? ?
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

tu..u..u
mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
tu..u..u
mungdaa ha mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
aashiq apna
mungdaa mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. The movie had Mahipal, Helen, Anwar, Pratibha, Sapru, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Ajit, Habib, Shyam Kumar, Ragini, Bir Sakuja, K N Singh, Sulochana, Tun Tun etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. I am sue that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the assistants in this movie seeing the resemblence in music with “Parasmani”(1963).

The song is picturised as a dance song on Helen who is seen performing for Anwar Hussain playing a royal. Among others in the picture, one can notice Edwina too, playing a maid standing silently.

Discussion on economics-3
——————————————————————–
Today is 26 january 2019, a red letter day in the history of Modern India. We all know that India gained independence on 15 august 1947, but what kind of nation we were going to be was not yet decided on that day. It took another two years and five months (896 days to be precise) for the nation to define itself as a Republic where every citizen, irrespective of his background was assured of equality.

Many nations have been formed over the centuries, but it was for a first time that a newly independent nation declared that all its citizens were going to have equal rights. If one looks at the history of USA, we find that that USA was formed on 4 july 1776, but equal rights for all citizens of USA were given much later. In early years of USA, only white males were allowed to vote. Blacks males were allowed to vote more than 100 years later. Females of all races were allowed to vote only from 1920. Seen that way, the constitution of India was, in many way a remarkable achievement for a newly independent nation, a nation so vast in area and population that many “experts” considered int ungovernable and one that was liable to break into pieces.

The constitution of India has served as a very powerful glue to hold this vast nation together. With passage of time, this glue has become more powerful than fevicol. 🙂

A major reason why the country became united and stayed united was the inclusive nature of the constitution where everyone was given six fundamental rights namely:-

Right to equality.
Cultural and Educational Rights.
Right to freedom.
Right against exploitation.
Right to freedom of religion, and.
Right to constitutional remedies.

The above fundamental rights is the magic glue that has kept the nation united. The above rights are exhaustive and all encompassing. We need not look very far. We only only have to look around our neighbourhood to find that many of these rights are not available to citizens in our neighboring countries.

The above fundamental rights basically gives respect and dignity and opportunities to all citizens. Many of these are rights that were not available to our forefathers.

India was an underdeveloped nation at the time of independence. Lots and lots of industrial activities were started which involved creating steel plants, dams, educational institutions, research centers etc. These were set up at places that were till then remote locations. People from all over the country got employment in these newly opened installations.

Movement of these people was largely by trains. So these trains were also a big unifier for the nation.

When people from various backgrounds met and interacted with each other, they got to learn about the language and culture of the place they had moved to.

While interacting with each other, it turned out that they could find some topics of mutual interest. One was Hindi movies and music, and other was Cricket. Hindi movies and music, and also cricket have been great unifiers for Indians.

With so many powerful glues to hold us together, and with gradual prosperity of the nation, Indians of today are far more proud and upbeat about India than they were a few generations ago. I find that I have personally become a nationalist (not a jingoist) and I am quite upbeat about the future of the country.

Here are some of the great things that are happening in India and are going to happen in future:-

1. GDP-When India became independent, it was one of the poorest nations on the face of the earth. This state of affairs continues till 1991, when the economic policy of the nation was finally given a thorough overhaul and the economy was liberalised. In a matter of a little over two decades, India gatecrashed into the list of top 10 economies of the world. Today, India is a member of G-20 group of nations which is a group of top 20 economies in the world. In reality, India should be a member of G-8 as well, seeing that Indian economy is very much in top 8 in the world. When the new figures of GDP are released a few months later, India would find itself as the fifth largest economy in the world, displacing our erstwhile master the Great Britain, who will slip to seventh position behin France. And India will leave these countries behind permanently. New target for India would be to overtake Germany and Japan, and that would be achieved in another one decade, may be less.

2. Steel is to an economy what the skeleton is to a body. An economy cannot be built without steel. There was a time, till 1907, when no steel was produced in India. It was in 1907 that the first steel factory was built by Jamshedji Tata in a place that is now called Jamshedpur. When Tata gave a proposal in 1907 to GIP Railways that they wanted to supply rail for Railway, the then Commissioner of Railway Safety, GIP Railway, Sir Frederick Upcott remarked that he would eat each pound of Railway if this upstart was able to produce that. Much later, British Steel, a steel company was taken over by a Dutch company to form Corus steel, and this Corus Steel was bought by Tata steel in 2007, exactly 100 years after the arrogant remark of a British. Today, India is world’s second largest steel producer behind China, and Britain is no where. Two Indian owned companies (Arcelor Mittal and Tata) are world’s number one and number three steel making companies in order of size of outturn of steel.

3, Soft power-India is a country that produced the largest number of movies in the world. They have fair share of film market in the world but not as much as it could be. But now it seems that India has started to produce movies that are truly world class and they are being appreciated for that. Example- Bahubali pt 2, Dangal.

4. Power of Indian market– Indian market is worth more than $1 trillion and it will become a $4 trillions market within a few years. With reforms such as GST, this is one single market that no one in the world can ignore. So India and its consumers can command high quality products at competitive prices. For example, Chinese companies which have no clue what Cricket and Kabaddi are, are the title sponsors of Indian Premier League and Professional Kabaddi League because they want to enter Indian market riding on the popularity of games that Indians love.

Some naysayers among us (there are quite a few) may tell us that we are nowhere in the world on per capita basis. That is true, but compared to where we were one decade back, India has made tremendous progress.

5. GDP per capita– The GDP per capita today works up to $2000 which is no big deal seeing that the GDP per capita in advanced economies are 20 times or more. Indeed that is the case, but that is because keeping Indians Gareeb has been a stated policy of some parties in India. That is why Indian per capita income remained under $ 400 till two decade ago and under $ 1000 till one decade ago . So India was in the list of Low Income countries till one decade ago. Thanks to opeing up of economy in 1991, the per capita income had grown up five times in last two decades, while it had doubled in last one decade. Now India is in Low Middle Income Group ($ 1025 to $ 4035 per capita group). Next target is graduating to Middle Income group ( $ 4035 to $12475 per capita) group.

6. Future growth of economy– Per capita income above $ 12475 makes a country a high income group country. So Indian per capita income needs to grow six times before India can become a high income country. That can be achieved if Indian resources- both natural as well as human, are upgraded in a big way. In simple terms, it means upgrading the infrastructure and reforming rules, taking unpopular and non populist decisions in the process if required. If India continues to grow at the existing annual growth rate of 7 % per annum then it will take between 25 to thirty years for India to become a high income country. If the growth rate is higher, then the target can be met in a shorter duration. For either case, a lot of input is required.

7. Quality related indices-A country that aspires to grow and join the list of advanced nations cannot do so unless they improve their quality. There are certain quality related indices that give an idea where a country stands. Some of these quality indices are:-
(i)Global Innovation index-India is ranked 57th in 2018- a steady improvement from its 81st position in 2015)
(ii)Global competitive index-India is ranked 58th in WEF’s global competitiveness index of 2018.
(iiiEase of doing business-India is in 77th position in latest ranking, it is a vast improvement from its rankings of 100 and 130 in the preceding years.
(iv)QS rating of top universities- IIT Bombay, the highest ranked Indian university has a world ranking of 162. In Asia, it is 34th, which shows that top Indian universities still need to improve a lot to catch up with advanced Asian economies viz Japan, China, South Kore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapor.e
(v)Credit rating- Though not as high as advanced economies, Indian credit rating is good enough to be investment grade, and so Indian business organisations are able to raise loan from foreign financial organisations.

8. India aims to be a $5 Trillions economy by 2023. 3 Trillions will come from service sector, one trillion from agriculture sector and one trillion from manufacturing sector. As far as manufacturing sector is concerned, I can visualise India becoming a big and respected exporter of Engineering goods.

All of the above are possible if Indians value their constitution and make the most of the provisions provided in the constitution. I am quite positive and bullish about the future prospects of India.

On this occasion, here is a rare song from “Subhash Chandra”(1978). ‘This movie was directed by Piyush Bose for A K B Films, Calcutta. The movie had Ashish Ghosh, Amar Dutt, Samar Kumar, Ajit Prakash, N.Vishwanathan, Lamsden, Bown, Smith, Reba Devi, Rama Das ec in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Subhash Chandra”(1978) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Aparesh Lahiri.

I take this opportunity to wish a happy republic day to all Indians wherever they are. I have no doubt that this republic day will mark the beginning of some great achievements and accomplishments for india in many fields.

“Bhakt Prahlad”(1967), originally made in Tamil and other south Indian languages was dubbed in Hindi as well.

The movie was directed by Narayanmurthy for Veerappan and company, Madras. It had S V Ranga Rao, Anjalidevi, Rajendranath, Dhumal, L Vijaylaxmi, Geetanjali, Nirmala etc in it.

The Hindi dubbed version had as many as 17 songs in it which were penned by P L Santoshi.

Here is the first song from “Bhakt Prahlad”(1967) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the singers of the song, but the voice sounds like Usha Mangeshkar to me. The song is picurised on the child artist who plays the title role of Prahlad.

Music ws composed by Rajeshwar Rao and Rajgopal Krishnan but the distribution of songs between them is not known. So I have decided to credit them jointly for music direction.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identfy the singer as well as the actor in the picturisation.

With this song, “Bhakt Prahlad”(1967) makes its debut in the blog.
