The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

Blog Day :

Today’s song is “Prabhat Vandana” from the film ‘Sant Janabai’ (1949).

This post from me is coming after a gap of 30+ days. Luckily the gap was divided in October and November months. I did not want to create a record of missing a full Calendar month, therefore I am sending this post in November. The last time such a big gap occurred was also in October/November months of 2017. Looks like I have to be careful in these two months since both times the cause of the gap was my health issues. But then, at the age of 82 years, these things are unavoidable. After this post again, there will be a gap in my posts as I will be busy with my grandson’s marriage in the first week of December. Then onward hopefully, I will continue my posts as regularly as before this gap.

Today’s song is like a “Prabhatiya” of Gujarat. It is sung in the early hours of the day, presumably as the first thing in the morning, praising God. Indians, in general, are very religious minded. While some may openly do things proclaiming their inclinations – like singing Bhajans, visiting temples, following religious traditions etc; there are , however, people who follow religion in their behavior and thoughts. The greatest advantage of the Hindu religion is that there are several ways of doing Bhakti and one can choose and follow what is possible for him.

According to Bhagwat Geeta and Vishnu Puran, there are 9 forms of Bhakti one can follow as per his wishes. They are….

1. Shrawan ( श्रवण ) Listening to Divine name like King Parikshit
2. Keertan ( कीर्तन ) Glorify God by discourse Like saint Tyagaraj
3. Smaran (स्मरण ) Remembering God by meditation Like Bhakt Pralhad
4. Paad Sewa (पाद सेवा ) Service at the feet of God Like Lakshmi Devi
5. Archana (अर्चना ) Worship for blessings doing Pooja
6. Vandana (वंदना ) Prostration before God doing Sashtang Namaskar
7. Dasya (दास्य ) Service to God Like Hanuman
8. Sakhya (सख्य ) Being friendly to God Like Arjun
9. Atma Nivedan (आत्म निवेदन ) Self Surrender like Meerabai

This is called Nav vidha Bhakti (नव विधा भक्ती ). Each method carries the same weightage. This has been followed since Vaidik times.

During the foreign attacks and cruel rulers, a wake up call to people of India was by means of the Bhakti Movement from 1300 to 1600 AD. This produced many saints and social reformers from Kanya Kumari to Kashmir and from Gujarat to Assam. Saints appeared in all areas of India. During the Bhakti Movement, almost all regions had their own Saints and great Bhakts. Maharashtra has been known to be a well developed modern state, boasting of an Education centre (Pune) as well as a commercial hub center (Mumbai). It is also a lucky state because it had many saints and social reformers from every strata of society. While Ramdas and Dnyaneshwar were Bramhins, other saints belonged to the different castes. Here are some names of saints in Maharashtra….

Tukaram – Baniya, Janabai-House maid, Namdev-Tailor, Gor kumbhar-Potter, Narhari Sonar-Goldsmith, Chokha Mela-Gardener, Soyrabai- Harijan, Eknath-Warkari, Rohidas-Cobbler, Savta Maali-Gardener, Banka Mahar- harijan, Sant Bhagu-Harijan, Kanhopatra- Dancing girl, Sant Sakhu- Harijan Housewife, Sena Nhavi- Barber, Pundalik-Backward etc.

Bhakti movement started in Tamilnadu in the 6th century and spread northwards from 15th to 17th century. Sant Janabai was one of such Saints. The story of the film was….

Jana, a little girl whose mother before dying told her to go to Pandharpur where she will be protected by Lord Vitthal, A merchant who is the father of Sant Namdev accidentally steps on Jana’s hand and asks for her forgiveness. He asks what she was doing in the temple alone, she tells him her story, being a good devotee of Vitthal he adopts her.

Little Namdev likes her from the instant he sees her and accepts her as his elder sister with joy. But the mother of Namdev wasn’t too happy with another person being in the family, but later she too melts to the love and simplicity of the little girl who would become a great saint as we know today.

Jana was assigned the work of washing the clothes by Namdev’s mother. Jana and Namdev hear a group of pilgrims singing in praise of Lord Vitthal and they start singing and dancing. Children in the group who are very thirsty run to Janabai to beg for water from her. “There are many wells in the village, go get your own water” says Namdev. “But we are outcasts, nobody gives us water” says one of the pilgrims.

Janabai pours them water from her pot, the satisfied devotees bless her for giving them water to drink. She gets scolded and beaten by Namdev’s mother for her act of charity towards the outcasts, which was considered a terrible thing during those times.

Namdev being a very devotional man, always sings and dances and forgets the duties of a householder. Janabai works hard for the food of Namdev’s family (wife and two children). Janabai prays to Vitthal for the food, when Vitthal gives her food she only takes what she needs for a day or two.

Namdev had a big debt to be settled, but he was on a pilgrimage to North India. The wealthy man who had lent him money decides to take Namdev’s property into possession. Jana pleads with him and agrees that she would pay all the money back. Jana works night and day to gather the money she needs.

One night she was very tired and fell asleep while working, but when she wakes up she sees a blanket on her and also sees that the work has been finished. Next night she pretends to be sleeping so that she could catch the person who did it. As soon as she sleeps she sees Lord Vitthal appear and do her work for her.

She catches him while working, from then on Lord Vitthal helps her in her work, he sings for her. He fetches water for her and does many things around.

One day Lord Vitthal feels very tired, seeing that Jana puts him to sleep. In the morning when he wakes up, he walks back to the temple with the blanket around his body, his ornament falls from his neck and falls on the floor of Janabai’s house.

In the morning when priests see the statue of Lord Vitthal they come to the conclusion that somebody must have stolen the ornament of Lord. They see a blanket nearby and assume it must belong to the thief. They start questioning everyone to find out to whom that belonged.

Janabai tells them that it belonged to her, priests search her house and when they find the ornament they accuse her of the theft, she tells them that the Lord was sleeping in her house yesterday and he must have left the ornament. People laugh at her, and thinking of her to be a liar, they decide to hang her to death.

They march her on streets, and just before the time to kill her, she prays to Lord Vitthal and he appears to save her. All people bow to Janabai.

This was a film made by Prabhat Film company, which was sinking day by day. After V Shantaram left it in 1942, the company survived by making several Devotional movies which gave money to the company, but could not save it. In fact, the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was the last film made by Prabhat Film company. After this the company was locked out. The Prabhat Studio and its property were auctioned in 1952 and the once famous company Prabhat was closed for ever on 13-10-1953.

Most of the devotional films made by Prabhat were written by GD Madgulkar- who was a famous writer of Marathi. The story and the screenplay of the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was also written by Madgulkar. He wrote some of the famous films of Hindi cinema in later years. He was an accomplished actor also and had acted in several Marathi and Hindi films.

Gajanan Digambar Madguḷkar (1 October 1919 – 14 December 1977) was a Marathi poet, lyricist, writer and actor. He was born in village Shetphal, Atpadi Taluka, Sangli district in Maharashtra. His family hailed from village Madgule in the same Taluka.

He is popularly known in his home state of Maharashtra by just his initials as Ga Di Ma (गदिमा). He was awarded Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1951 and Padma Shri in 1969. He has written 157 screen plays and over 2000 songs in his career. He was called Adhunik Valmiki (the modern Valmiki) of the current era due to his composition of Geet Ramayan (Ramayana in Songs) as the most notable work. 2019 was celebrated as his Birth Century year. The Government of Maharashtra hosted various events and festivals to grace the occasion.

Madgulkar wrote poetry, short stories, novels, autobiographies and scripts, dialogues and lyrics for Marathi as well as Hindi movies. His poems have been adapted to a wide range of musical forms such as Sugam-Sangeet (light music), Bhav-Geet (emotional songs), Bhakti-Geet (devotional songs), and Lawani (a genre of folk songs in Maharashtra). Madgulkar entered the world of movies in 1938 at Kolhāpur. He contributed to 157 Marathi and 25 Hindi movies. He was also an artist. He loved to paint nature scenes. Special mention must be made for the films, ‘Jeewan Jyoti’ (1953) Screenplay and dialogues, ‘Toofan aur Diya’ (1956) – story, and ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957) -story, screenplay and dialogues.

A noteworthy fact about Madgulkar is that during his peak period in Marathi films, he created a World Record. He teamed up with Music Director Sudhir Phadke and director Raja Paranjape. Together, as a team, they gave a total of 11 Hit films in a row in 18 years – from 1948 to 1966 … a record for a Team. He had knowledge of 10 languages including Marathi, Hindi, English, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu.

Madgulkar was married to Vidya (Padma Patankar, Kolhapur) and they had 3 sons (Shridhar, Anand, Sharad Kumar) and 4 daughters (Varsha, Kalpalata, Deepa, Shubhada). The popular Marathi writer, Vyankatesh Madgulkar was his younger brother. His home in Pune (‘Panchavati Bungalow’) has become a place of attraction for his fans.

I was based in Poona during the period 1974 to 1976. In this period one of my local friends took me to Madgulkar’s bungalow and introduced me. When Madgulkar came to know that I hailed from Hyderabad, he was very excited and asked me several questions. I spent about 4-5 hours with him and had lunch also with him, on his repeated insistence. He was a good conversationalist and loved to talk and listen. I will never forget this meeting. Those days he was not keeping good health.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus. Written by Narendra Sharma, it was composed by Sudhir Phadke. It is quite inspiring.

Uma Devi the singer – most people, especially of the more recent generations may not even recognize this name. And if they are film buffs, they may surely be familiar with the comedienne Tun Tun. However, they may not connect these two names to the same person.

Remembering Uma Devi on her remembrance day today. She left this world on 24th November in the year 2003, at the age of 80.

As a singer, we see her active from 1946 to 1959. The earliest reference as a singer is from the film ‘Wamiq Azra’ of 1946. And her last singing assignment is for the 1959 films ‘Jungle King’ and ‘Hero No. 1’.

As an actress, rather as a comedienne, she started appearing on screen from the 1950 film ‘Babul’. And she continued to be active till 1990. The last film she appeared on screen is ‘Dhandhe Ki Kasam’. In the 1950s and 1960s she was quite popular presence in Hindi films. During her career she teamed with many male counterparts such as Bhagwan Dada, Agha, Sunder, Mukri, Dhumal, Johnny Walker and Keshto Mukherjee. In the span of four decades, she appeared in about 200 films.

The song that I bring on board today is from a lesser known film of 1949. The film name is ‘Sumitra’. The names of the lyricist and music director are given, however both are completely  unfamiliar. Checking through the Geet Kosh I find that this is the only film where these two names are appearing. The lyricist is KF Contractor and the music director is HD Subham. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about these artists.

This is a love song in which the lady is expressing her feelings of being completely captured by love. A rare and very less heard / unheard song.

Song – Teri Preet Ne Tadpaaya (Sumitra) (1949) Singer – Uma Devi, Lyrics – KF Contractor, MD – HD Subham

Lyrics

teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
kar leen dil ki baaten
kar leen dil ki baaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

Today’s song is from the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948.

How many of us really know what ” Hip Hip Hurray ” means in reality ? I am sure all of us have used this slogan several times during our school and college days, whenever we were celebrating a victory of our team over the rivals or someone had earned a coveted Reward or an Honour from the authorities. I have used it many times myself, as a victory slogan etc. That was not an age when we cared for the dictionary meaning of popular words or phrases like this one. The colloquial meaning was sufficient for us.

Out of curiosity, I checked a few English dictionaries like the Oxford and the Concise Cambridge dictionary. I found that ” HHH ‘ is a cheer slogan called out to express congratulations towards someone or something. It also denoted appreciation and approval of a victory. ” So much for the meaning of this phrase !

I could not find the story of this film, despite my efforts. There was another film made in 1984 with the same title. That film was based on an Inter-Collegiate Football competition, with a background of a love story of Raj Kiran and Dipti Naval. Then there was also a TV serial, with the same title. It ran from 21-8-1998 to 25-5-2001, with 80 episodes, followed by its second season with 45 episodes , after 15 years.

Anyway, the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948 was produced by Navin Yagnik and Hari Kashmiri, for the banner ‘ Kashmir Films’. The film was directed by Arvind Sen. He had earlier acted in 2 films-Doctor-1940 and Devdasi-1945. Hip Hip Hurray -1948 was his Debut film as a director and he went on to direct another 10 films till Nasihat (1986). His 2 films Muqaddar-(1950) and Kafila-(1952) became successful. They had excellent music also.

The film’s Music Director was Pt. Hanuman Prasad. The name Hanuman Prasad paints a picture of a Pehelwan playing kushti in an akhaada. Guru Hanuman and his akhaada in North India were quite famous. In the late 50s and 60s,there were many Wrestling Championships played in India. Many Pehelwans from other countries also came here to participate. Through these bouts the name of Dara Singh became very famous and later he appeared in Hindi films. The name Hanuman rekindles memories of that era.

However, one would be reasonably surprised if I tell that Pt. Hanuman Prasad ( Sharma/Triloki) was a well known Hindi Film Music Director in the 40s and 50s. Hanuman Prasad was a complete musical package, in the sense that he composed, wrote lyrics ( Gaali, Jasoos, Saudagar and Rasilee) and sung a song also in film( Rasili)-as Sharma. He even directed the film Rasilee-46. Geeta Dutt fans will remember him as the one who discovered her and gave her the first break in Playback singing in Hindi films in 1946.

There were 2 lyricists for 9 songs (actually 11 songs). The 9th song had 3 parts on 2 different records. It was sung by different singers). However, HFGK failed to credit every song with its lyricist’s name. The cast of the film was Balwant Singh, Navin Yagnik, Nirupa Roy, Mangala, Prabhu Dayal, Kumkum, Gulab etc. and a battery of comedians like Dikshit, Bhudo Advani, Radha Kishen and Gope.

Balwant Singh was an actor and a singer. He had no song in this film and from the film ‘Apni chhaya’-1950, with Mohd. Rafi giving him the playback, his singing came to a close.

BALWANT SINGH was born in Pandoga village of Hoshiarpur on 9-12-1918 in a Jahagirdar’s family. He was quite rich. After a training from Pt. Bhishmadev in classical music, he came to Bombay and joined Bombay Talkies at the age of 18 years. He first gave Playback in Jeevan Prabhat-37.In Nirmala-38 he acted and also sang a song. Then came Durga-39 where also he acted and sang. V. Shantaram cast him in Padosi-41 and his songs in this film were hits.

He was Hero in Darpan (1941),Swapna (1942),Malan (1943),Naukar (1943),Paraya Dhan (1943), Ashirwaad (1943), Collegian (1944), Dr.Kumar (1944), Bhanwar (1947,Hip hip Hurray (1948) and Apni Chhaya-(1950) etc. As a hero he sang less songs. His songs with Shanta Hublikar (Malan) and Parul Ghosh and Khan Mastana (Bhanwar) were very popular. He also acted in Nirmala, Vachan and Kangan.

In all, he acted in 18 films, sang 20 songs in 10 films and also wrote 6 songs in the film Sumitra-1949.

He married a girl from the royal family of Palanpur, Gujarat. After leaving films, he worked in All India Radio for 4 years. Then he settled in Ahmedabad, directing Dramas and Teaching music. Finally, he shifted to Ludhiana where, after a long illness, he died on 4-12-1985.

When Balwant Singh worked for A.I.R., it was claimed that he was responsible for the making of the famous morning Signature Tune of the A.I.R., and despite all presentations to several authorities, he was not given the credit for this. His son also claimed this in his interview given to our friend Shishir Krishna Sharma, for his Blog ” Beete hue din”. When I read his interview on the Blog and the You Tube, I wrote to Sharma ji, pointing out to him that this tune was made by the German refugee in India- Walter Kaufmann and NOT Balwant Singh. My E Mail dated 21-4-2021, to him is given here….

Dear Sharma ji,

I visited YouTube and heard your presentation.
I have also read what is written in your post about Balwant Singh on your Blog.
I would like to bring to your notice that it seems this Signature Tune of A.I.R. was NOT made by Balwant Singh,
but by one Walter Kaufmann, when he worked for All India Radio from 1934 to 1946.
There is a book ” THE MUSIC THAT STILL RINGS AT DAWN, EVERY DAWN”
Walter Kauffmann in India, 1934 – 1946
Author – Amrit Gangar
Published by Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai. 2013

Chapter 3 in this book is THE ALL INDIA RADIO, on page 36.

In this chapter it has been given in detail, with proofs in terms of several letters etc about the signature tune made by him for A.I.R.
There is an interview of the son of Dinkar Amembel, station Director, Bombay AIR, who says that Dinkar had played the Tanpura and
Mehli Mehta played the Violin.

I have this book, gifted to me by the author.

When you come back to Mumbai, you can visit me and see the book entries yourself.
I am fully convinced that the tune was done by Walter Kaufmann only.
It is possible that that is the reason why Balwant Singh’s claim was not entertained ever !

However, for whatever reasons, the said point was neither removed from his Blog nor the YouTube presentation.

Today’s song is sung by 4 singers namely, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Amabalawali, G.M. Durani and Shamshad Begum. It is a good song. Enjoy….


Song- Jawaani hum guzaaren tumhaare aasre (Hip Hip Hurray)(1948) Singers- G.M.Durrani, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Ambalabai, Shamshad Begum, Lyricist- Not known, MD- Pt. Hanuman Prasad

Song-Kabhi tarsi hui aankhon ki hasrat chhup nahin sakti(Tohfa)(1947) Singer-Parul Ghosh, Lyrics-Aarzoo Lucknowi, MD-M A Rauf Osmania

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Kabhi tarsi hui aankhon ki hasrat
chhup nahin sakti
parakhne waali nazron se
haqeeqat chhup nahin sakti
chhupaao laakh pardon mein
muhabbat chhup nahin sakti
chhupaao laakh pardon mein
muhabbat chhup nahin sakti

zamaana chaahe jitni door
pahuncha de
juda kar keh
muqaddar bhi ??
jitni hi deewaaren khadi kar de
samaai ho jo aankhon mein
wo soorat chhup nahin sakti
samaai ho jo aankhon mein
wo soorat chhup nahin sakti

jo dil mein ho shuru se hai
shikan aati hai maathhe par
banaawat ki hai ??
?? ne keemat ??
kisi soorat tadapte dil ki haalat
chhup nahin sakti
kisi soorat tadapte dil ki haalat
chhup nahin sakti

na kat’te aankh mein ??
?? lagaawat mein
kali daali mein ho
?? khushboo ??
chaar gulshan mein
adaawat chhup bhi sakti hai
muhabbat chhup nahin sakti
adaawat chhup bhi sakti hai
muhabbat chhup nahin sakti
