Mohe panghat pe nandlaal chhed gayo re was one of the 12 listed songs from ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960) which became very popular. Shakeel Badayuni was credited for this song though the song was inspired from a traditional dance (kathak) thumri written, probably sometime in the 19th century.

There has been some confusion as to when Begum Akhtar (1914-1974) first sang in a concert. Also, associated with this confusion is when she first recorded the ghazals and thumris for the issue of her 78 rpm discs. Rita Ganguly, one of the senior disciples of Begum Akhtar, in her book ‘ Ae Mohobbat – A Reminiscing Begum Akhtar’ (2008) has mentioned that Begum Akhtar’s first participation in a concert as a singer was at the age of 11 (1925) at Calcutta (now Kolkata) which was arranged for Bihar Flood Relief Fund. However, many of the articles and blogs mention that her first concert was in 1934 for Bihar Earthquake Relief Fund. Some articles even mention that she sang in a concert for the first time at the age of 15.

Recently, I came across on the internet, an old review of the book ‘Darlingji – the true love story of Nargis and Sunil Dutt’ (2007) on Onlooker magazine. The book was written by Kishwar Desai. What caught my attention in the review was a comment about Jaddan Bai, Nargis’s mother. It was stated in the review that there was a subtle hint in the book about Jaddanbai being a love child of Motilal Nehru and Daleepa Bai – a courtesan of Allahabad. I am not sure whether this is a fact or a mere rumour which remained unsubstantiated. But this review brought back to my mind Jaddanbai whom I had almost forgotten. In any case, my awareness about Jaddan Bai ( 1892 or 1906 – 08/04/1949) was limited to her being the mother of Nargis and some connection to Hindi film industry.
