“Bihaari”(1948) was directed by K D Katkar and A R Zameendaar for Samajchitra, Bombay.. This “Social” movie had B Nandrekar, Surekha, H Prakash, Nimbalkar, Samson, Sheikh, Fayazbai, Shabnam etc in it.

This obscure movie had ten songs in it that were penned by four lyricists and composed by two music directors.

One song from the movie was covered in the blog some three years ago. Here is the second song from “Bihaari”(1948) to appear in the blog.

This rare song is uploaded on YT by our own Mr Sadanand Kamath. normally I avoid discussing songs uploaded by him, preferring that he himself covers the song. But he has given us all an open offer to discuss these songs. Moreover, he on these days has left foor his annual activity, viz on a trek to mountains of Himalayas, so he may be back only after a few weeks.

This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. This is the only song in the movie whose lyricist as well as music director are unknown. The movie had Naresh Bhattacharya and Ramkrishna Shinde as the two music directors. It appears to me that the music is more Mumbai school rather than Bangal school so I have considered this song as a composition by Ramkrishn Shinde. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie, its lyricist and music director and also on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala long back in 2014.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

neend kabhi rehti thi aankhon mein
ab rehte hain saanwariya

Aah, so now we know, the sleep can no longer come to the eyes, for the eyes are already occupied with the images of the beloved. You cannot accommodate two swords in a single scabbard. Or for that matter, two lions in the same cave. So it has to be that sleep will have to wait outside, while the joys of visions of the beloved crowd all the room inside the eyes.

I fall back on Shakespeare, yet once again – this endearing snippet from a sonnet, that tells of why the eyes are without sleep, although the limbs are dreadfully tired. Just read these lines,

weary with toil, i haste me to my bed,
the dear repose for limbs with travel tired;
but then begins a journey in my head
to work my mind, when body’s work’s expired:

for then my thoughts–from far where i abide–
intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee,
and keep my drooping eyelids open wide,
looking on darkness which the blind do see:

save that my soul’s imaginary sight
presents thy shadow to my sightless view,
which, like a jewel hung in ghastly night,
makes black night beauteous, and her old face new.

He is putting the blame on his thoughts; that they are intending to make a pilgrimage to you, and intend to keep the drooping eyelids open wide. And when that sight is reached – “thy shadow to my sightless view”, it is like a bright shining jewel hung in the darkness of the ‘ghastly night’. And the consequential effect – the night becomes ‘beauteous’ and her old tired face seems so new. And this jewel of an image is preferred over the fatigue of the limbs and the sleep that they are demanding.

But even Shakespeare sound somewhat rough around the edges, when we compare his creation to the similar sounding songs of Hindi films. Think of “Neend Kabhi Rehti Thi Aankhon Mein, Ab Rehte Hain Saanwariya” (‘Aasra’, 1966). And my mind would prefer the soft melody of this song. Or the lilting strains of “Meri Aankhon Mein Bas Gaya Koi Re, Mujhe Neend Na Aaye Mein Kya Karoon” (‘Barsaat’, 1949).

Today’s song is somewhat unfamiliar – from the 1950 film ‘Muqaddar’. The singer is Nalini Jaiwant. Lyrics are from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, and the music is composed by Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. Yes, the Geet Kosh indicates that the music is composed by the two together. This would be one of the very last films of Kehmchand Prakash, as he passed away on 10th Aug of 1950. So it is possible that the work begun by him, was completed by Bhola Shreshtha.

Nalini Jaiwant has a small repertoire of songs she has rendered in Hindi films. Her singing in films is clustered in two periods – from 1941 to 1943 and then from 1948 to 1950. One solo film follows in 1955. The films are ‘Bahen’, ‘Nirdosh’, ‘Radhika’ in 1941, ‘Aankh Micholi’ in 1942 and ‘Adaab Arz’ in 1943. Then we have ‘Gunjan’ in 1948, ‘Chakori’ in 1949, and then ‘Hindustan Hamaara’ and ‘Muqaddar’ in 1950. The film in 1955 is ‘Chingaari’. Total songs she has sung in films is 40, as per Geet Kosh listings. On the blog, we already have showcased six songs in her voice. This is her seventh rendering to be represented here.

Listen to this perky rendering, and if in love, prepare for another night without sleep.

And so continues the saga of sleepless nights. . .

Today’s song is from the film Ghar Ki Izzat (1948). It is a lively duet of Shamshad Begum and Ram Kamlani. The film is produced and directed by Ram Daryani, under the banner of Murli Cinetone, Bombay. Music was given by Pt Gobind Ram and songs and dialogues were by Ishwar Chandra Kapoor. The cast of the film was Mumtaz Shanti, Dilip Kumar, Gope, Gulab, Dixit, Manorama, Jeevan, Suleiman etc etc.

In the early decades of talkie era, i.e. in the 1930s and 40s, many Muslim actors and actresses took on Hindu names, for obvious reasons. Here are some such examples – Mumtaz Shanti (real name – Mumtaz Begum), Renuka Devi (Begum Khurshid Mirza), Neena (Shahida), Meena Shorey (Khursheed Jehan), Geeta Nizami (Rasheeda Begum), Madhubala (Mumtaz Jehan), Indurani (Ishrat Jehan), Veena (Tajour Sultana), Shyama (Khurshid Akhtar), Dilip Kumar (Yusuf Khan), Jayant (Zakaria Khan), Kumar (Syed Ali Hasan Zaidi), Suresh (Naseem Ahmed), Sudhir (Shah Zamaan Khan) and many more.

However, not all did this. Those who did not change name were Mehboob Khan, Mazhar Khan, Ashraf Khan, Najmul Hasan, Zubeida, Noorjehan, Khursheed etc etc.

After Independence, this trend diminished, but a new trend started – that of taking on a screen name other than the real name. Some examples are Sunil Dutt, Balraj Sahni, Sanjeev kumar, Raaj Kumar, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Akshay Kumar etc. A full article can be written on this subject, but this is enough for now.

Film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ was the only film Mumtaz Shanti did with Dilip kumar. Compared to young Dilip Kumar, Mumtaz Shanti was more successful and experienced with films like ‘Basant’ (1942) and ‘Kismet’ (1943). She had worked with top actors of that era, like Ashok Kumar. In this film, you can see an awkward Dilip Kumar and a vibrant and seasoned actress Mumtaz Shanti.

Mumtaz Shanti or Mumtaz Begum was born in 1922 at village Dinga in Punjab (now in Pakistan). She lost her parents early and she was brought up by her uncle who was a police constable. After his transfer to Lahore, Mumtaz was able to continue her schooling. She learnt dancing and music. She was also an expert in household chores. At the start of filmi career, she was at first rejected by Shorey Pictures. But then the famous writer/lyricist Wali Saheb helped her and took her to Calcutta’s East India Film Co. to work in a Punjabi film ‘Sohni Kumharan’ (1937). She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambey Di Daali’ (1941) in Calcutta. Now the things were different and she was invited by Shorey Pictures to Lahore, to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘ (1942). This film was immensely successful and ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies  offered her a role in their film ‘Basant’ (1942). She came to Bombay and did Basant and then ‘Kismet’ (1943). Both the films were hits all over India.  Mumtaz was good looking, tall and lithe, so looked attractive. After ‘Kismet’ she became a free lancer and worked with many different studios. Her notable films are ‘Badalti Duniya’ and ‘Sawaal’ (1943), ‘Bharthari’, ‘Lady Doctor’ and ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944), ‘Chaand Chakori’ (1945), ‘Shravan Kumar’, ‘Dharti’, ‘Magadhraj’ and ‘Pujari’ (1946), ‘Dekhojee’ and ‘Doosri Shadi’ (1947), ‘Padmini’, ‘Heer Ranjha’ and ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ (1948), ‘Putli’, ‘Biwi’ and ‘Aahuti’ (1950). Her last film in India was ‘Zamaane Ki Hawa’ (1952). In all she worked in 21 Hindi and 4 Punjabi films. She did 2 films in Calcutta, 4 in Lahore and the rest in Bombay.

She married lyricist/writer/director Wali Saheb in 1947. He directed her in 3 films in India. He was very strict and forced her to come to studios only in burqa. She was not allowed to talk to anyone. No one was allowed to touch her, even in any scene. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Wali Saheb did 3-4 films in Pakistan, without much success. He passed away in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti passed away in 1993/94, unsung and unknown in Pakistan.

After Independence films were being made on social values which the Indian people wanted to inculcate in their new life, like importance of joint families, need to do hard work, need to abolish bad customs like dowry, bridging the gap between the rich and the poor, importance of education, women’s emancipation, abolition of castes and untouchability, respecting elders and traditions etc. Thus it will be seen that every film had some or the other message for the society.

This was also one such film, in which the makers stressed the need to strengthen the joint family tradition and to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. The film had become quite popular, as it did not sound like a propaganda film but the message was conveyed in a very entertaining way. The songs were good and became popular. The music of this film is composed by Pt Gobind Ram.

Pt Gobind Ram was a highly respected composer in the industry for his originality. Stalwarts like C Ramchandra considered Sajjaad Husain and Pt Gobind Ram ji as the original composers. It is stated by Pankaj Raag in his book ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’ that in the mid 1940s, “. . . when K Asif planned his magnum opus ‘Mughal e Azam’, he had initially engaged Gobindram ji as the music director”. It is another thing that the film was delayed, for other reasons, by almost 15 years. Almost all the main players in the film got changed during this period of delay, including the music director. During his career, Pt Gobind Ram gave music to 32 films from 1937 to 1955, composing 302 songs.

Just before writing this article, I saw this film on YouTube to refresh my memory. I had seen the film in the early 1950s in its second run in Hyderabad. The cast of the film includes the name Dixit.  Only a handful readers will recollect who he was, but there was a time in the early talkie era of 1930s and the 40s when he was a popular name. He and actor Ghory had formed a comic pair on the lines of the Laurel and Hardy team of the English cinema. In those days 4 comedians were popular – Dixit, Ghory, Kesari and Charlie.

Manohar Janardan Dikshit (this became Dixit in film line) was born on 12-11-1906 at Sinnar in Nashik district of Maharashtra. It seems, his arrival in this world was predicted by a sadhu. Somehow, in Dixit’s career, roles of sadhu played a vital role. He acted as a sadhu in as many as 31 films. His father was a district judge and was very strict at home. Due to frequent transfers, Dixit lost interest in studies. After two unsuccessful attempts in matriculation, he stopped going to school.

He started his film career as an assistant cameraman in Navjeevan Studio, with the help of Mama Varerkar, a noted Marathi writer who was associated with many studios of Hindi films. Of course Dixit did not learn anything of cinematography and did only manual works like carrying the camera etc. On the 14th November 1929, he faced the camera for his first role in the silent film ‘Sparkling Youth’ with P Jairaj and Madhav Kale. In Navjeevan Studios he did 3 more silent films and then joined the prospering, upcoming Ranjit Film company. Here he met his future partner Nazir Ahmed Ghory, who was born on 11-8-1901 at Bombay. Ghory was a graduate in those days. They paired in their first comedy film, ‘Char Chakram’ (1932), directed by Jayant Desai. The four ‘chakrams‘ in the film were Dixit, Ghory, Eddie Bilimoria and Madhuri. It was a hit film and the comedy pair became famous. They copied Laurel and Hardy. They even looked like them. Dixit was the Hardy part of the team.

They continued working together till 1947. I do not know exactly, but my guess is that they worked together in about 20 films. After partition, Ghory migrated to Pakistan and Dixit worked alone. Dixit was described by Baburao Patel as ‘our best comedian’. He was the darling of film critics too. Unfortunately, all the Ranjit Films where in they worked together were destroyed along with other negatives and except for few photos and stories about them, nothing remains now. Dixit worked in 4 silent and 66 Talkie films in 17 years’ time. For a person carrying 220 pounds weight, it was really creditable.

After the film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’, Dixit suffered from a heart attack and he passed away on 29-6-1949 (adapted from Eena Meena Deeka and MuVyz, with thanks.)

The story of the film,

Seth Chunilal (Dixit) is a rich person. His daughter Radhika (Manorama) has married Chaman (Gope) who is their ‘ghar jamaai‘. He does not work anywhere. Radhika’s mother (Gulab) taunts him every now and then and one day, frustrated Radhika leaves the house along with Chaman. They start an insurance business and prosper in a village nearby. Chunilal’s son Chander (Dilip Kumar) becomes a lawyer. He visits his sister in the village. In same village, lives Roopa (Mumtaz Shanti) with her two brothers (Jeevan and Suleiman).

Chander gets introduced to this family, falls in love with Roopa and they get married. Upon coming to the city home, Chander’s mother starts taunting the new bahu on her poverty. Bahu, being adarsh bhartiya nari tolerates everything, but Chander gets frustrated and starts drinking. Sister Radhika and Chaman bring him to their house.

Chander’s mother and father start repenting and finally they go to Chander and Roopa, beg their pardon and bring them back with honour. They even call Chander and Radhika, but they refuse to come back, as they have prospered now.

So, all is well that ends well.

 

This film has 11 songs. According to the blog 6 songs are already discussed, but it transpires that one song ‘Ae Dard Zara Dum Le’ posted on 17-5-2011 and included as this film’s song, is actually a song from film ‘Zamana’ (1938). It was only used in this film as a radio song. So actually only 5 songs are covered. Today’s song is the 6th song from this film. In the video, Gope and Manorama singing this melodious song. The newer generation folks will remember the Chachi in the 1972 film ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’. Ah yes, this is the same Manorama.

“Banjaare” (1948), by now an obscure movie, was directed by Hiren Bose for Hiren Bose Productions, Calcutta. This movie had Baby Deepanjan, Banshree, Malwika, Pramod Chandra, Jeewanlal, Kamal Mishra, A Malik etc in it.

The movie had nine obscure songs in it according to HFGK. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs.

Here is the first song from “Banjaare” (1948) to appear in the blog. The singer is not known as far as HFGK is concerned. The uploader has mentioned the singer as Savitri Ghosh, spelled as Sabitri Ghosh in Bangla style.

Zakir Hussain is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anupam Ghatak.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, the movie “Banjaare” (1948) as well as the singer Savitri Ghosh make their respective debuts in the blog.

“Mera Munna”(1948) was directed by Vishram Bedekar for Minerva Movieone, Bombay. The movie had Motilal, Nayantara, E Tarapore, Leela Mishra, Seeta Bose, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Anita Sharma, Sadat Ali, Ramesh Sahgal, Hafeeza etc in it.

This obscure “social” movie had seven very obscure songs in it. HFGK is silent about the names of singers of these songs.

One song from the movie has been covered in the blog in 2015. That song was found to contain the voice of Mukesh (along with Lalita Deulkar) and it turned out to be an as yet undiscovered Mukesh song !

Other songs are just as obscure. seeing that their singers are not mentioned in HFGK, some of them may also turn out to be significant discoveries.

Here is the second song from “Mera Munna”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is a “mother child” song which turns out to contain the voice of Lalita Deulkar. I hope I have identified her voice correctly alongwith the uploader who also mentions this name as the singer.

Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale (Mera Munna)(1948) Singer-Lalita Deulkar, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

Aayi hoon main pyaar bhar dil ko sambhaale

“Chaand Sitaare”(1948) was directed by Ishwar Chand Kapoor for Ravindra Art Productions, Bombay. The movie had Jeevan, Manorama, Rajan Haksar, Niranjan Sharma, Anita, Satish, Leela etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. As many as six songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the seventh song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Though Ishwar Chand Kapoor and Aziz Kashmiri were listed as the two lyricists of this movie, the lyricist of this song is not known. Premnath (the music director) composed the music.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

“Dukhiyaari”(1948) was directed by D K Ratan for Jeevan Jyot Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Surendra, Trilok Kapoor, Meena, Ranjeet Kumari, Cuckoo, Chaand Burque, Majnu, Bhudo Advani, Ramesh Mohan, Chandramohan etc in it.

Four songs from this movie has been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from this obscure movie. This song is sung by Surendra. F M Kaiser is the lyricist. Gyan Dutt is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that Surendra was an actor-singer and his name figures in the cast, it is clear that the song was picturised on himself. And going by the lyrics, one can guess that a heart broken Surendra is singing this song as his “majboor” beloved is getting married to someone else- a standard fare in Hindi movies that would then lead to a melancholic song like this.


Song-Ab hamko bhula do kehte hain (Dukhiyaari)(1948) Singer-Surendra, Lyrics-F M Kaiser, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

ab hamko bhula do
kehte hain
kehte hain
kehte thhe kabhi jo bhulaana na
bhulaana na
bhulaana na
wo apni nazar se kehte thhe
ghar dil mein kisi ke banaana na
bhulaana na

tu shaad raho
aabaad raho
majbooriyon ka ab jikr hi kya
majbooriyon ka ab jikr hi kya
taqdeer hi bigdi jab apni
phir tumse karen shiqwa kaisa
phir tumse karen shiqwa kaisa

haa aa aa
haaye
ho shaadi mubaarak tumko
meri barbaadi ka gham khaana na
bhulaana na
bhulaana na
ab hamko bhula do kehte hain
kehte thhe kabhi jo bhulaana na

jis roz mili thhi tumse nazar
aayenge ye din thhi kisko khabar
wahaan geet khushi ke hain aen aen lab par
armaanon ka maatam hai idhar
wahaan geet khushi ke hain lab par
armaanon ka maatam hai idhar
ae dil tadapne se haasil
wo ho gaya jo thha hona na
bhulaana na
bhulaana na
ab hamko bhula do kehte hain
kehte thhe kabhi jo bhulaana na

wahaan varsha hogi ee ee phoolon ki
phoolon ki ee

yahaan ashqon ki aankhon se
lage jhadi
yahaan ashqon ki aankhon se
lage jhadi
wahaan naachen umangen
wahaan naachen umangen har lahza
yahaan dushman e jaan ek ek ghadi
yahaan dushman e jaan ek ek ghadi
ae dard sambhalne de thham jaa
thham jaa
ae hasrat e dil tadpaana na
bhulaana na
bhulaana na aa

“Birha Ki Raat” (1950) was directed by Jagidaar for Noble Arts Production. The movie had Dev Anand, Snehprabha, Nargis, Snehprabha, Om Prakash, Jagirdar, Madan Puri etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. seven songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the eightt and final song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This rare song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagartam.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Birha Ki Raat” (1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. It is the first movie in nearly four weeks to get YIPPEED in the blog. This YIPPEE project as well as the debutant movie project have slowed down of late, but hopefully it is just a temporary phase of lull.


Song-Bas dekhte hi dil mera deewaaana ho gaya(Birha Ki Raat)(1950) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Sarshar Sailaani, Husnlal Bhagatram
Chorus

Lyrics

unka qusoor thhaa
na hamaara qusoor thha
aankhon mein aankhen daal ke ae
dekha zurooor thha
aaa aaa aaa

bas dekhte hi
bas dekhte hi dil mera deewaaana ho gaya
haay pehli mulaaqaat
haay pehli mulaaqaat ka bahaana ho gaya

dil ki baat lab pe aayi
aa ke reh gayi
dil ki baat lab pe aayi
aa ke reh gayi
lab jo baat keh na sake
aankh keh gayi
haaye aankh keh gayi
bas itni si
bas itni si baat ka fasaana ho gaya
haay pehli mulaaqaat
haay pehli mulaaqaat ka bahaana ho gaya
bas dekhte hi

jaadoo bhare nainwa ko maan gaye ham
jaadoo bhare nainwa ko maan gaye ham
pyaar kise kehte hain ye jaan gaye ham
haaye jaan gaye ham
lo aaj samaa
lo aaj samaa aur bhi suhaana ho gaya
haay pehli mulaaqaat
haay pehli mulaaqaat ka bahaana ho gaya
bas dekhte hi
bas dekhte hi dil mera deewaana ho gaya
haay pehli mulaaqaat
haay pehli mulaaqaat ka bahaana ho gaya

The most common milestone in this blog is century of songs in the blog. Then we also have some associated milestones viz centuries by artists, contributors etc.

After this blog touched the five figure mark of songs on 20 july 2014, some of the regulars began to point out some “special” numbers that the blog was approaching. Though not round figures like centuries, these numbers held arithmetic significance and we in the blog decided to associate these numbers with special writeups.

The first of such “artificial” milestones was post number 11111. We marked the occasion by discussing a special song where as many as five artists completed their individual centuries in the blog with the same song.

The next such “artificial” milestone was post number 12345. Some regulars kept reminding Sudhir Jee and me about this milestone. We kept up a brave face telling everyone that we were aware of the special occasion. In reality we were all at sea to decide what song to discuss on that special occasion. Just at the nick of time, Sudhir Jee hit upon an ingenious idea and discussed a special song that had one lyricist, two music directors, three singers, which was piturised on four actors and this song appeared in the movie five times !

That done, we heaved a sigh of relief thinking that the next “artificial” special number was far off. We were mistaken. Mr Avadh Lal, a musically cum mathematically inclined regular suggested that the next “special” number was just round the corner. This number was 12357- all prime numbers.

If chosing a suitable song for post number 12345 was a challenge then chosing a song for post number 12357 turned out to be an even tougher challenge. How Sudhir Jee managed to pull off the feat of posting a song for post number 12357 is something that I have not understood even to this date.

Now, more than 1200 songs later, we arrive at another magic number, or a honky tonk number, as Sudhir Jee puts it. 13579 is the mumber, consisting of all odd numbers in ascending order.

Unlike the earlier honky tonk numbers, I am surprised (and somewhat relieved) to realise that the regulars of the blog have not noticed that we are approaching this number and as a result we have not received any reminders for this special number.

Unlike the songs that we found for the earlier three honky tonk numbers, finding a “suitable” song number 13579 is a tall order and I was quite unable to come up with a suitable and justifiable idea that our wise readers would find plausible and believable.

After giving the matter some thought, I realised that the ideas used for earlier occasions were not applicable in this case and we needed to come up with some original ideas.

After toying with some unpractical ideas, I thought up this idea that this post needed to be somehow associated with DMY format, viz 13-5-79.

So, I scanned google to find out if I could get some film personalities that were either born on 13-5-79 or they died on this date. I drew a blank. I came to know that the crown prince of an European nation was born on this date but no personality who could be even remotely associated with HFM was born on this date, nor did someone die on this date on that year.

There was one actress who was born on this date in a later year, but this blog is a U rated blog and so I would be very hesitant to have to do anything with her on this blog. 🙂

I also came to know that ‘Mr Natwarlal’ was released on 14 may 1979 (if it is correct), so it narrowly missed being a movie with 13-5-79 connection, not that it would have helped though, seeing that all songs from this movie have already been covered.

So, I decided that I needed to get some HFM related personality who has something to do with 13 may and hope that he/ she had something to do with the figure 79 as well.

A little search on our anniversary page revealed that two singers namely Utpala Sen and A R Oza had died on 13 may, though on years other than 1979. Did any of them die at the age of 79. If yes, then that would clinch the issue. Very little information is available on A R Oza, and whatever is avilable is contained in this very blog, thanks to the article by our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh. Going through his articles revealed that the date and year of birth of A R Oza is not available. So he is ruled out.

When I checked up the dates for Utpala Sen, I found that she was born on 12 March 1924 and she died on 13 May 2005 at the age of 81.

So I began to think of a combination. Let Utpala Sen supply 13-5 component of the jigsaw. Let the other portion of the jigsaw, viz 79 be supplied by someone who is associated with Utpala Sen in a Hindi movie song.

On checking up, I realised that Utpala Sen has sung very few Hindi movie songs (may be 15 or 16) and most of them are already covered in the blog. She sang most of these songs with Pankaj Mullick and all available songs of this combination are already covered.

I found that Utpala Sen had sung in ‘Wasiyatnama’ (1945) under the baton of RC Boral. Could RC Boral supply the other half of jigsaw ? I checked his biodata. He was born on 19 October 1903 and he died on November 1981. So he was just over 78 years of age. What a narrow miss ! Or was it ? If one counts the number of calendar years that RC Boral saw in his lifetime, he saw a total of 79 calender years ! So there is the other half of the jigsaw puzzle, nicely getting dovetailed with the other half with a satisfying sound !

‘Wasiyatnaama’ (1945), by now a forgotten movie, was directed by Soumen Mukherji for New Theatres, Calcutta. The movie had Asit Baran, Sumitra Devi, Bharati, Latika Bannerji, Ahindra Chaudhary, Hiralal, Devi Mukherji, Shor, Tandon, Natwar, Tulsi etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it and two of these songs are covered in the blog.

This third song from the movie, which is the 13579th song post for the blog, is sung by Utpala Sen and it is composed by RC Boral. The song is penned by Zakir Hussain and no details are available for him, so he was in any case of little use to us in our search for our magic numbers.

Here is this special song post for the blog. This song, like most such songs, is quite a rare song.

So, my dear readers of this song, here is song post number 13579 in the blog. Enjoy !

And hopefully this takes care of our honky tonk numbers for the near forseeable future. Phew, this was close ! 🙂

[Ed Note: In the second antaraa, the word ‘mrigya’ (मृग्या) is a modified form of the word ‘mrig-trishna’ (मृग तृष्णा), which translates to ‘mirage’ in English. It is the optical illusion created in the deserts, which makes the travellers and also animals in the desert, see things, especially water, at a distance, even though it is not actually there.]


Song – Gaaye Jaa Tu Geet Suhaane, Kaun Kisi Ke Mann Ki Jaane (Wasiyatnama) (1945) Singer – Utpala Sen, Lyrics – Zakir Hussain, MD – RC Boral
