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.

Today’s date, 14th March, is an anniversary of another sort, very intimately related with Hindi films and Hindi film songs. Today is the 82nd anniversary of the birth of the Hindi film song. It was this day, that the first talkie film of the Hindi screen was exhibited for the first time. The film is ‘Aalam Ara’, and the first public exhibition of this film occurred on 14th March, 1931, at a theatre named Majestic in Bombay. With the release of this film, the silent moving pictures acquired a voice, the story acquired the spoken word, and the medium changed forever with the infusion of the most significant element in the repertoire of Hindi cinema – music and songs.
