Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Carl Sagan, in his book, ‘Pale Blue Dot’ talks about the picture taken by Voyager I before it left the solar system. Planet Earth, the only home we have known so far appears less than a fraction of a pixel in the picture. It’s on this speck of dust like object in the vast cosmos lived every human, plant and animal we ever know and every civilization.

On this planet the greatest men in a wide variety of fields have left behind their legacies both good and bad. Their lives however great or condemnable have been spent here.  In the vastness of time and space, a few years spent by great men may mean nothing. However, the legacy left behind by such men are recognized and appreciated for generations.

Theatre and entertainment arenas have also seen many a great men and women contribute their art and expertise to mankind. Quite a few are well known and many others are often not credited to the extent to which they should be.

Narrowing down to a movie and further restricting ourselves to Hindi film and non-film songs, the essence of this blog, we are now at the doorsteps of 15 thousand representations.

By these 15k representations, we all have tried to contribute our little efforts in bringing to the fore, the works of film artists – popular, less known and unknown. Amongst the main contributors, the nearly impossible tasks are taken up more experienced and knowledgeable such as Arunkumar ji, Sudhir ji, Sadanand ji etc.  The painstaking efforts in collecting accurate information from various sources and contacts and posting in a concise manner is definitely not an easy task.

Then, there are specialists such as Nalini ji for reminding us of the artist’s anniversaries and Prakash ji for identifying lesser known actors on the screen. Raja ji, whose marathon posts never bore us and we have Avinash ji who pours his heart out in the posts. We have Bharat ji with his expertise and first-hand experience.

There have many others who were more contended with sending only lyrics and a few who keep giving home-works to others. 🙂 A few are more than happy to suggest corrections to the posts and lyrics etc. in the comments section. Then, there are also contributors who vanish for a while and re-appear for special occasions (pun about self intended). 🙂

And, finally we have Atul ji, the fulcrum of our activities and the force that binds us together. Atul ji marches along from one milestone to another. And when he reaches the next milestone, we are all automatically teleported there. 🙂

I never planned for any special song for this occasion. (That again, the leaders will have a plan). But seeing that a great gem of an even greater singer is yet to be posted, I decided to go for his solo.

The singer is Talat Mahmood, of whom quite a lot has already been written on the blog.

My father, an avid fan Talat saab often says that his voice is for royal people. By royal, he means to say people with special taste and I can’t agree with him more. Talat Saab’s melancholic songs sung in blue mood are a class apart, the likes of which one will never get to hear from any other singer.

There are several such songs of Talat Saab which one can hear multiple times and can only admire the grace and dignity in his voice for songs pertaining to even dejection.

The list seems to be endless, but it’s a fact that he sang quite fewer songs compared to his other well-known contemporaries. However, Talat Saab’s voice will always be the triumph of quality over quantity.

The present song which I had not heard in the recent past is also amongst my many favourites of Talat Mahmood. There are stars and the moon in the song in case people are wondering what Carl Sagan had to do with this song in the first place. 🙂 (Kya karein, some starting problems in writing this post)

I pray for the continued longevity on the blog, active participation of all the contributors and readers as well.

Hearty Congratulations to one and all on this great achievement.

Song – Aao Baadal Chain Se Royen (Aawaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – Rajnikant, MD – Dhaniram

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

baa..aadal aa..aaawo

baadal aawo

aawo baadal aawo. . .

aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen
jalti dhoop
jalti dhoop
jalti dhoop mein main hoon akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

khush rahen
khush rahen. . .
khush rahen ye duniya waale
khush rahen ye duniya waale
khatm hua mera mela
khatm hua mera mela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

armaan the dil mein mere kitne
chanda ke
haaye chanda ke saathi taare jitne
haaye chanda ke saathi taare jitne
dooba dil armaan bhi doobe
dooba dil armaan bhi doobe
toofaan ka dekha rela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

din the chaar jo beet gaye mere
din the chaar jo beet gaye mere
honge dukh ke ab derey
honge dukh ke ab derey
darr nahin par hanse bhi kaise
darr nahin par hanse bhi kaise
gham se ab tak khela
main hoon aaj akela
aao baadal chain se royen
aao baadal chain se royen

बा॰॰दल आ॰॰आवो

बादल आवो

आवो बादल आवो॰ ॰ ॰

आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
जलती धूप
जलती धूप
जलती धूप में मैं हूँ अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

खुश रहें
खुश रहें॰ ॰ ॰
खुश रहें ये दुनिया वाले
खुश रहें ये दुनिया वाले
खत्म हुआ मेरा मेला
खत्म हुआ मेरा मेला
मैं हूँ आज अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

अरमान थे दिल में मेरे कितने
चंदा के
हाए चंदा के साथी तारे जितने
हाए चंदा के साथी तारे जितने
डूबा दिल अरमान भी डूबे
डूबा दिल अरमान भी डूबे
तूफाँ का देखा रेला
मैं हूँ आज अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

दिन थे चार जो बीत गए मेरे
दिन थे चार जो बीत गए मेरे
होंगे दुख के अब डेरे
होंगे दुख के अब डेरे
डर नहीं पर हँसे भी कैसे
डर नहीं पर हँसे भी कैसे
ग़म से अब तक खेला
मैं हूँ आज अकेला
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ
आओ बादल चैन से रोएँ

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 35
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“शम्मा बुझने को चली

Of the many colors of Rafi Sb’s voice, probably the most touching, and the most impressive is his interpretation of the emotions of sadness. Maybe, it be so that the “. . . sweetest songs are the ones that tell of the saddest thoughts” (from the poetry of Percy Shelley, that inspired the iconic song of ‘Patita’ (1953) – “Hain Sab Se Madhur Wo Geet Jinhen Hum Dard Ke Sur Mein Gaate Hain”). And maybe, that the genuineness and honesty of expressions that go together with the unfeigned and substantive voice of Rafi Sb, it simply makes us feel the true depth of this ‘sweetness’ – a sweetness that touches a very familiar, a very dear chord within.

THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS….Song No. 4
———————————————
This duet is from film Pagle-50,sung by Talat and Rajkumari.

This duet was a combination of an upcoming Young male singer and a waning middle aged female singer. But there was ONE common thing between them. We all know, Talat had a ‘Tremor'( Kampan) in his voice-which set him apart from all other singers of his times. Few people know that even Rajkumari had a Tremor in her voice-albeit a faint one- which actually made her voice sweet and melodious making her voice different from others.

When I look back at the list of songs, I find that there are lots and lots of “weepy” songs in Hindi movies. In fact I need to open a new category names like this. Clubbing them all as sad songs will not do.

“Aashirwaad” (1968) was an offbeat movie. And obviously, Indian movie goers were not ready for such movies. So there is little surprise then that the mention of this movie would draw a blank from many Bollywood movie buffs.
