ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 20
———————————————————————

And now, continuing the saga of the 10th anniversary celebrations. 🙂

First off, thanks to Mahesh ji for announcement that “The last batsman is in”. Quite true, and well, almost. One reason (of the many excuses that I am going to converse about today 🙂 ), is that, quite truly, I was waiting for at least one more contribution to land in, before I announce the closure of celebrations. But as the events transpired, I realized that waiting for that article would probably be like waiting for Mr. Godot.

I refer to Ben Kayti, who has promised me that she will be sending in a write up, but then – well, days have just been following one after the other. In an earlier communication she mentioned that she was little down in health, and that she has a doctor’s appointment. And then – silence. One day, two days – messages on WhatsApp, emails, phone calls, voice mail remained unanswered. When no response came, I had no option but to press the panic button. I tried to contact three other people in the family. And finally, her daughter-in-law responded to my SOS. The family is out to a vacation – Glacier National Park in Montana, where no connectivity is available. The vacationers also include the other two members of the family who I was attempting to get in touch. So it was a relief to know that all was well, and also somewhat vexing that there was a communication gap that created some worries. I will return to this and tie up the loose end left here, and continue with the mainstream of celebration.

‘19’ seems to be a lucky number for me. Quite a few significant things in my life are connected with this number. And thus, not surprisingly, I get connected with this blog that celebrates its birthday on 19th July. And then, more, I was not planning it to be so – my (previous) post comes at 19th in the series. Ah yes, as Atul ji has mentioned often, there is a hand of providence with what goes on with this blog. And let me add one more very interesting ‘19’ phenomena. As per the statistics that the WordPress maintains, the date which has had the highest number of visitors on this blog (10,630) is also a 19 – 19th October, 2011.

On 14th January this year, the visitor’s ticker on our blog home page turned into an 8 digit number for the first time. We clocked in 10 millionth visitor that evening (IST) – and it translates to 1 crore, in domestic terminology. As I write to complete this article, the ticker has already gone past 10 million 6 hundred thousand, clocking in on average ~ 3,000 visitors per day in this year so far. I would like to give it a name today – this presence that ASAD makes on the worldwide web – it is the “ASAD Phenomena“. Nowhere else probably (once again, as far as I am aware) is there any such endeavour that combines the interests and the determination of such a like-minded team with such dedication, to sustain such a significant level of interest in the central theme of this blog. All I can say is – there are music lovers in this world, and then there are ‘music lovers’ in this world.

Looking back at my association, the date was 1st October 2010 when I clicked on the subscribe button for getting the RSS feed and became a regular reader-member of this blog. And guess, what is the first song feed that arrived into my mailbox next day (on 2nd October) – “Ham to tere dil ke bangley mein aanaa maangtaa”. Now that I read this song title, I wonder whether it was a message intended for me from Atul ji, or was it supposed to be from me to Atul ji. 😀 😀  Whichever way, I think it just worked out very famously. 🙂

My first step into lyrics contribution was published on 1st Feb, 2011 and it is the famous Suraiya song from ‘Bilwamangal’ (1954) – “Parwaanon Se Preet Seekh Len”. And then it just went on from there. The first post written by me appeared on 18th Feb, 2011, a song from the film ‘Gul e Bakaavali’ (1963) “Ye Kehdo Tumhe Hamse Kyaa Chaahiye”. Missed the 19th by just a day, although there is a post on the 19th Feb also, my second one. And then it just went on from there.

कुछ लगता नहीं के सात साल गुज़र गए। Seriously, it seems just like last week or last month. In that very year (2011), in the subsequent months, we had a spectacular event on the blog, something of the type that has not yet been repeated. An event that truly marks this blog to be a Phenomena. Starting on 28th June, 2011, the blog saw an unbroken series of articles on the great KL Saigal Sb, that lasted all the way up to 18th Sep, 2011. The last song of this unbroken series, posted on 18th Sep is “Baalam To Pe Sabar Padey” from the film ‘Parwaana’ (1947). I quote a brief paragraph from that write up here,

With this post, I have now published 61 posts on Saigal Saab’s songs. In one of the interim emails, Atul ji wrote to me that every day morning, he eagerly opens his mailbox to look for an email from me. And the eagerness and urgency was no less on my side. Some of the ghazals took anywhere from 3 to 6 hours to complete the write up, with the translations and commentary to my satisfaction. There have been nights when I have sent the write ups to Atul ji at 2 am, 3 am and even past 4 am. There have been occasions that (after having fallen asleep on my laptop) I got to complete the write up later in the morning; you can identify these days by noting the delay in posting the Saigal Saab song for the day.

What a heady time it was. That endeavour was really worth it. We enjoyed it immensely, and it came to a monumental conclusion of documenting and posting each and every one of the available Hindi / Urdu recordings made by the great singer. And truly, nothing comparable to that has again been attempted on the blog so far.

One more reason that I quote this above paragraph from the earlier write up. Something of this relates to the song in this post. I will return to it again, shortly. But yes, I am talking about the relentless tempo with which this blog continues to progress. The support and participative contributions from the entire team are without doubt the bulwark that provides the strength to the arms and shoulders of what this blog is. But then the definitive power of this entire effort is the unflagging dedication and persistence of the leadership from Atul ji, which is truly the backbone of this effort.  It is an accomplishment sans pareil anywhere in the annals of the history of blogging on the internet related to Hindi Film Music.

So, beyond September of 2011, although now done with all the available songs of Saigal Saab, the journey and the saga still continued. Century milestones came with their regularity, then the 5,000th song – “Hamen To Loot Liyaa Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” (dated 13th Nov, 2011), more centuries of artists and other interesting statistical achievements. Then on to the 10,000th song – “Phul Rahin Belariyaan Dolen” (dated 20th July,2014), an extraordinary song published first time anywhere on the net, a song of 1931 vintage posted; and the unprecedented organized effort wherein all regular members of the group contributed a post that contains an introduction of another member. And a memorable long afternoon spent by almost the entire group connected on email, as we all waited for the post to appear on the blog.

On and on, tirelessly, doggedly – getting to honky-tonk posts at the nos. 11111, 12345, 12357 . . .

Then we came to the post no. 13182 – “Aag Lagi Shola Uttha Shamma Pe Parwaana Gira”, on 22nd April last year. It was the mostest of the most momentous celebrations, the 10,000th post by dear Atul ji. It was a surprise for Atul ji; he was under the impression that his 10,000th milestone was already past. But that was not the case. The entire group got together and gave him a standing ovation that verily resounded across the internet.

The next big whopper for our blog came on 14th Jan earlier this year, and its celebration was covered in post no. 13921 “Bhalaai Duniya Ki Jo Subh O Shaam Karte Hain” – the visitor ticker on the blog had turned from nine million, nine hundred ninety nine thousand, nine hundred ninety nine to ten million, sometimes in the late evening of 14th Jan (IST). In desi parlance, we would say  निन्यावे लाख, निन्यावे हज़ार, नौ सौ निन्यावे से हम एक करोड़ पर पहुंचे। Once again, this was a major, major occasion for the blog, and the echoes reverberated once again around the globe – literally. 🙂

And now, greetings (balated) for the date of completing 10 years since this blog’s creation by Atul ji. The date is 19th July (and I am late, of course, as usual – I have a reputation to protect and uphold, you know 😀 ). As per the Wikipedia articles, celebrations calendars and other related details available online, the tenth anniversary is represented by tin or aluminum. The color of this anniversary is blue and / or silver. And the gift of this 10th celebration is diamonds. Whooo. . .

Note that 10 is another interesting number on our blog recently – 10,000th post on blog, 10,000th post by Atul ji, 10 millionth visitor on the blog, and now the 10th anniversary of the blog itself; the last three events listed happening within the period of past 16 months. You simply just cannot cease to keep celebrating on this blog. And the wonder of wonders is that we also continue to trace and share absolutely wonderful celebration songs to go along with the event. The patterns that we conjured up for the post nos. 11111, 12345 and 12357 are quite an interesting phenomena in as of themselves, with the ”hand of providence” playing its fair share in making them happen. 🙂 For those who may not be familiar with these stories, I suggest they should view these posts – they are really very interesting tales of happenstance and coincidence. 🙂  Just click on the post numbers in the sentence above.

So, connecting back to where we started off. Finally last night (IST), the much awaited call from Ben Kayti and Jagdish Bhai materialized. It was a great relief to hear their voices, and to be assured that all is well. The planned vacation had gone on very well, and quite “frigidly”, given that the vacation spot chosen was the Glacier National Park in Montana (USA). After returning from there earlier this week, they also had some guests visiting and so Khyati Ben was completely busy with family affairs. She has once again promised that she will write a post this coming week now. I decided not to wait any further and put up the 20th post in this series today. If and when her post comes along, it will be now at an auspicious ‘पायदान’ of 21. 🙂

Amongst others in the list of my ‘reasons’ (excuses) is of course that I was also in travel during some of this intervening period. In fact most of the early posts in the 10th anniversary series were actually posted while I was on the move. Getting back home, I almost immediately got busy with celebrations for Guru Purnima at my Guru ji’s place. There, the celebrations last for 5 / 6 days, starting from the Guru Purnima day and continuing till the ‘पंचमी’ in the month of ‘सावन’. So that occupied me for almost a whole week within which I was not able to accomplish much as far as the blog activities are concerned.

Another thing was the song selection. Till almost the last hours of posting my previous article – “Dil Chaahta Hai” – I had no idea what would be the songs I am going to write about. The first song I finally zeroed in was this one. Going by a set of very good celebration songs posted by other friends in the group, I was thinking – most of these songs are of recent origin. How about searching for a similar celebration cum group dance song from the earlier decades? After sifting through many possibilities, I picked up this song from the film ‘Tarang’ of 1952. First of, this song has four singers – Rafi Sb, Geeta Dutt, Shamshad Begum and Chitragupt himself. Secondly, the song (no video available) gives a feeling of a gypsy camp by the banks of a river, where a group dance cum song is being performed.

So actually, this song was originally planned to be the earlier post. But then, in random process, I bumped into the “Dil Chaahta Hai” song, and with some contemplative considerations, my planned post got converted into two posts. And good that it did. If I would have combined both these posts with one song – well. . . 🙂

So here is a fabulous celebration song which promises that the proceedings are going to last all night, and that all are invited. And the best part, this song starts with mentioning the word ‘सावन’.

So let me now take just a couple of more minutes to link in ‘सावन’ (saawan) with this celebration. You are going to love this. After having posted all the posts received from the group, and with Atul ji’s post also in place, I started to get individual messages from members of this group, asking me about the delay as to why my post was not coming in. And me, I was without an answer; what to tell – that I have not yet identified the song even? Well, as part of this set of messages, I get this fond message from Atul ji himself on 26th or maybe 27th July, wherein he prodded me to publish my post on the 28th. Reason, he explained, was that 28th July this year is the start of the month of ‘सावन’. And back, in 2008, when this blog got initiated, the date 19th July was also the start of of the month of ‘सावन’. I was really wonderstruck. I had never made this wonderful connect before. Wow, this blog is born in the month of ‘सावन’ – ‘सावन – मन भावन’, and not just the month, on the first of the month. Now this is really auspicious. I can go on now connecting many more things, along with this connect. . .  but maybe not. Goodness, there are hundreds of songs in Hindi films that have the word ‘सावन’ in the mukhda. So I will move on by saying that this blog is blessed – for it is born in this auspicious month, showering sprinkles of delightful music in drizzles of melodious songs, one after the other. Oh sure, yes, this blog is a ‘सावन’ born. 🙂 Without any doubts. I am glad Atul ji highlighted this point to me, and that now we know what songs to post in the future, when the blog’s birthday comes along. 🙂

Coming back to this film and this song. I got the set of songs of this film from my collector friend. This film has some very wondrous songs, ten in all, eight of which are penned by IC Kapoor, and one each by DN Madhok and Ram Murti. This song is written by Ram Murti. The music composition is by Chitragupt, who has also lent his voice to two of the songs in this film, including this one. The blog already carries 5 songs from this film, and I promise you, the best of the songs are still to come. Just like this song today. It is such a joie de vivre expression of gaiety and celebration. The tempo is so sweet and so infective, that you will be swaying with the beat. When I heard this song for the first time, well, quite a while back now, I was simply bowled over by it. And even now, having heard it so often, whenever I play it again, I simply am not able to get over it.

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

Just listen to this song, and I assure you that at the end of the play, you will feel so un-satiated that you will be playing it again and again.

In some ways, this song also expresses my connect with the blog. Earlier in this article, I had mentioned a quote from the earlier posted last article in the KL Saigal series. So that is the connect here. Practically all my work for this blog happens in the dead of the night and in the wee hours of the morning. This is also mentioned in the quoted paragraph above. Even beyond the Saigal Sb series, my mode of working on the tasks related to this blog has not changed. All the posts that you see getting on to the blog at 7 am and 9 am – all these posts have been worked on and completed the previous night at times like 2 am and 3 am. 🙂

A very happy 10th birthday to ASAD; a ton of congratulations to Atul ji, and all the dear friends and co-passengers on this musical bandwagon. The saga continues. . .

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

“Aaj Ki Baat” (1955) was produced and directed by Leela Chitnis to launch the career of her son Ajeet Chitnis. The movie had Ajeet Chitnis, Uday, Chitra, Bipin Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Leela Chitnis etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Aaj Ki Baat” (1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Talat Mehmood was the main male playback singer in the movie (with four songs), it can be safely assumed that he had sung for the lead actor of the movie viz. Ajeet Chitnis. It is a joyous song sung by Talat Mehmood is a rather restrained manner.


Song-Mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane (Aaj Ki Baat)(1955) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Snehal Bhatkar

Lyrics

mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

shokhi se hansna nigaahen milaana
shokhi se hansna nigaahen milaana
mere saamne unka wo aana jaana

kya kar diya
haaye kya kar diya
unki pahli ada ne
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

wo unki sharaarat
nadiya kinaara
unki sharaarat
nadiya kinaara
thhandi hawaayen sama pyaara pyaara
thhandi hawaayen sama pyaara pyaara
koyal ki taanen wo bulbul ke gaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

chaman mein wo unka mere saath rahna
kabhi dil ki baaten nigaahon se kahna
bhulaaye na bhoolenge
bhulaaye na bhoolenge aise thhikaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

“Maalti Madhav”(1951) was produced by BhaleRao-Shreenivas Joshi and directed by M Neelkanth for Prasann Pictures, Bombay. This mythological movie (based of Sansktit Poet Bhavbhuti’s creation of the same name) had Durga Khote, Anant Marathe, Baby Shakuntala, Balakram, Indu Pal, Pittu, Sushaant, Vasant Shinde, Indu Kulkarni, Ganpat Rao, Gauri, Kelkar, Subodhini, Takalkar, Kumud Lele, Bargeer, Suman, Raj Kishore, Sulochana etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered. Both of them were covered way back in 2011 !

Now, after seven years, here is the next song from “Maalti Madhav”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Only the audio of the song is available. Most likely the song was picturised on Durga Khote who was the leading lady in the movie.


Song-Man saunp diya anjaane mein (Maalti Madhav)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

man saunp diya anjaane mein

ik jhalak mein bandhe praanon se pran
ek jhalak me bandhe praanon se pran
kitna sukh hai bandh jaane mein

man saunp diya anjaane mein

pag pag par inko barje laaj
pag pag par inko barje laaj
ye aati nahin bahlaane mein

man saunp diya anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein

Blog Day : 3671 Post No. : 14552

We have read many accounts of artists, famous as well as obscure and those in between, in the blog. One theme that repeatedly gets played while discussing all these artists is that very few of them managed to have successful and fruitful careers throughout their lives. In most cases, a vast majority of aspirants failed to achieve any worthwhile success. Some relatively lucky persons managed to achieve some modicum of success though that was not enough for them to be considered as successful.

Then these are some people whose tales turned out to be rags to riches and hen back to rags !

We have described many such artists in the blog- for instance names like Master Nisar, Bhagwan Dada, Vatsala Kumthekar readily come to mind.

Why is it so that some successful artists managed to remain successful throughout their careers whereas some artists, having tasted crazy stardom could not handle that and came crashing down !

If one tries to analyse such cases, may be one can come to some conclusions that may help explain the matter.

I, with my experience, have this hypothesis that every individual needs to be good at (1) his chosen profession (2) his inter personal relations and (3) financial matters.

1. Good in chosen profession:-
There are a good number of people who believe that one needs to have “talent” in his chosen field and that would take care of the rest. That is hardly the case. One gets to show one’s “talent” only when one gets the “breaks”. And one needs qualities like patience, persistne, tenaciy, fighting spirit, strength of character, never say die spirit etc that are essential without which one can not get the right reaks. Once a person gets the break, he needs to make it count. If he fails at first, he still needs to persist.

Moreover, one needs to keep reinventing oneself instead of just doing the same old stuff again and again which after some time may turn stale and unappealing to the public.

2. Inter personal relations- No matter how “talented” a person may be in his profession, if he is unable to get along with people, including his patrons/ employers then one can be prety sure that the person will only get limited opportunities to prove his worth. A Sajjad Hussain, exteremely talented musician but quite poor in getting along with people, readily comes to mind. O P Nayyar is another such example though he managed to have far more success than Sajjad Hussain. But that was inspite of his poor man management skills, and not because of that. As soon as success began to desert him, O P Nayyar found himself getting snubbed by even those whom he had helped get established in their careers.

3. Financial matters- This third and final point is the most underrated one. No matter how much one knows about one’s profession, one needs to have good understnding of financial matters. If one is unable to handle one’s finances well, then the money will sooner or later part ways with the artist who is not savvy enough to be able to manage his finances well.

Sadly, Indians in the past were brought up to believe that poverty was noble while being rich was evil. Our leaders made us think so. With some exceptions, most leaders themselves came from moneyed families and continued to remain moneyed while glorifying poverty. Little wonder then that many artists who suddenly found themselves covered with money were unable to handle success. They had no clue what to do with all that money and they blew the money up.

There were some wise artists, who were like the political leaders. While they often championed the cause of povery on screen, they were savvy enough to soon turn movie producers and thus became the owners rather than employees of the movie making business. Ashok Kumar is aclassic example. He was a humble lab technician in fild world. A chance occurence found himself being made the hero of a movie opposite a lady who was his employer, no less ! And in less than a decade, the business savvy Ashok Kumar had become a film studio owner and film producer. Ashok Kumar was one filmy character who never saw and bad days, financially speaking, throughout his long career in Hindi movies.

People who woud fail to capitalise despite getting good opportunities were those who lacked the abbilities to sell themselves. It does not surprise me to realise that this category of artts are those who were rather poorly educated. So they did not have the wisdom that a well rounded formal education could have given them. They often did not know how to get heir due or how to survive in the film world.

If one looks at Mubarak Begam, one can see that she was an extremely talented playback singer no doubt but she lacked in the other departments that I have discussed. She had no idea how to sell her artistry among film producers as well as music directors who ultimately decide the playback singers for their movies. The fact that she was poorly educated (in fact uneducated) was a clear handicap for her.

The fact that she ended up in a poor financial condition is also a well known fact. And that should come as no surprise really.

With this background, let us have a song sung by an artist who was “talented” in singing but was not quite so in matters of “inter personal relations: as well as “financial matters”. I am talking about Mubarak Begam

“Rishta”(1954)was produced by Rashid Parvez and directed by Aslam for Rajasthan Productions, Bombay. This movie had Nigar Sultana, Suresh, Anwar, S Nazir, Rai Mohan, Leela Mishra, Neelam, Faizi, Agni, Sheikh, Ramlal, K R Thapar, Baby Chaand, Nadir, Kalyan, Vijaylaxmi etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Rishta”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song, a forgotten gem, is sung by Mubarak Begam. Pt Phani is the lyricist. Music is composed by K Datta aka Datta Korgaaonkar.

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


Song-Kya khabar thhi yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaaayegi (Rishta)(1954) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Pt Phani, MD-K Datta

Lyrics

kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi
hum to samjhe thhe
mohabbat raas hamko aayegi
hum to samjhe thhe
mohabbat raas hamko aayegi

ashq aankhon mein machal kar
keh rahe hain baar baar
dil ki dhadkan dard ban kar
har ghadi tadpaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi

ghamzadon ka koi na hoga
is jahaan mein gham gusaar(?)
ghamzadon ka koi na hoga
is jahaan mein gham gusaar(?)
zindagi ko har kadam par
maut bhi thukraayegi
raat rone mein kategi
din katega yaad mein
raat rone mein kategi
din katega yaad mein
ye judaai bewafaai
umr bhar tadpaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi

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

When I looked at the three balance songs of the movie, I discovered that these songs were great and special songs in their respective genre. Nevertheless, if I keep holding songs back for special occasions then I may not find myself with too many songs to discuss on a “normal” day. 🙂 So I decided that one out of these three songs should be discussed today.

Here is the fifth song from “Sanskaar”(1952) to appear in the blog. This song is an inspiration song which is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

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


Song-Jeenewaale o matwaale zindagi se pyaar kar (Sanskaar)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
yoon na baith zindagi mein zindagi se haar kar,
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

moorakh na dar dekh andhera
moorakh na dar dekh andhera
hoga kabhi to savera
hoga kabhi to savera aa
ranj-o-gham se zindagi ke roop ka singaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
zinda hai to zindagi pe jaan bhi nisaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale
