Today (19 october 2017) is deepaawali, the biggest festival in India.

It may sound unbelievable, but it is the tenth Deepawali for the blog today (19 october 2017) ! The fact that we have lasted this long, and instead of losing steam, we seem to be adding new features to the blog means that we have come quite a long way from the first deepaawali of this blog in 2008.

We have covered 33 deepaawali songs in the blog in the past, and that includes all the well known deepaawali festival songs.

When we look at the deepaawali songs, we find that these songs can be broadly divided into two categories- happy and sad. Happy deepaawali songs exhort us to celebrate the festival, whereas sad deepaawali songs lament the fact the deepaawali may be happy for some but not quite so for others.

That should make us to think. How come the festival brings happiness for some but not for others, when presumably everyone is worshipping the same goddess Laxmi on the occasion !

I have give this matter some thought and I have come to my own conclusions.

I feel that we as Indians try to take short cuts instead of taking the trouble to achieve results the hard way, be it in our normal works, or in worship. So when we worship the goddess Laxmi, we think that doing her chaaploosi (singing her prayers) as well as bribing her (by offering her some chadhhaawa) does the trick. That way, we tend to believe that our gods are like our public officials.

Then people wonder why goddess Laxmi did not favour them. If one thinks about it, Goddess Laxmi does not favour the chaaploos and the bribe givers, rather she favours those who often do not even observe the festival of deepaawali. If we think about it, the richest and most prosperous nations of the world do not even observe deepaawali unlike Indians.

How is it that Americans, Germans, Japanese, South Koreans, people who do not even observe deepaawali are the most prosperous nations in the world ?

To my mind, they are prosperous because they actually worship two other Gods. The first is Goddess Saraswati. No, they do not do it by installing an idol of her on basant panchami, rather they do it by attaching enormous importance to quality education for their people.

A country’s wealth (defined as GDP per capita) is positively associated with its education expenditures. US spends 5.6 % of its GDP on education which amounts to $2600 per capita. India spends 3.3 % of its GDP on education and that adds up to a niggardly $ 50 per capita. So we see that US spends more money on education than the total GDP of India. Little wonder then that US citizens are in general vastly better educated.

After one is educated, that education must be used to build the nation. In other words, worship of goddess Saraswati must be followed by worship of Lord Vishwakarma. In India, manual labour is so looked down upon that blue collar workers, who help build the industry of a nation, are considered of low social status i India. We in India did not even worship Lord Vishwakarma till recently. It is only some one hundred years ago that British rulers introduced Vishwakarma Puja in India. It is the only Indian Puja that is held according to English calendar.

Put simply, we look down upon hands on work. We look down upon honest hard work. Whatever education that we as Indians receive gets wasted as it is not fruitfully employed.

Since we are neither properly educated nor properly trained in various vocations, so the quality of our output is poor. We do not appreciate quality. Little wonder then that our productivity is low which reflects in our abysmal per capita GDP of $ 1600, which is less that what US spends on education per capita.

When we worship goddess Laxmi on the Deepaawali night and hope that the goddess would bless us, how exactly is she going to bless us ? Surely it cannot be through lottery or jackpot. It will be through the same usual source, viz salary for the salaried, and through sales for the shop keeper. On the eve of Deepaawali, some staff earn “bonus” which a few days later end up in the bank accounts of shop keepers. So in effect it is the shop keepers who really get blessed by Goddess Laxmi during Deepaawali. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a song from “Shrimati Jee”(1952). This movie was directed by I S Johar for Filmistan, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Nasir Khan, Ram Singh, Murad, Samson, Vimla, Indira, Prabha, Baldev Mehta, Ram Avtar, Yashwant, Mirazkar, Agha Miraz, Majnu, Johar etc in it.

There were ten songs in the movie. nine of these songs have been covered in the blog. This tenth and final song from the movie is a deepaawali song where people implore goddess Laxmi to arrive at their residence. Why goddess Laxmi would not favour them with her visit has been explained by me in the writeup above. 🙂

The song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

With this rare song, “Shrimati Jee”(1952) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportuity to wish all the contributors, visitors and well wishers of this blog a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali. May Goddess Laxmi REALLY favour you with her blessing.

Today’s song is from a very little known film ‘Nirmal’ from 1952. During the period of the 50s, the film industries in all centres, i.e. Calcutta, Madras and Bombay were in full steam. The Partition had made a quantitative and qualitative change in the Hindi film industry. Many seasoned and successful artists had left India, creating a void suddenly. However, this proved to be an opportunity in disguise for many artists ‘waiting in the wings’ in the fields of  acting, film direction and music direction. The void was filled up almost immediately.

Many actors and actresses who used to play supporting roles, became lead players, assistant directors got a chance to become directors and a few new comers and chorus singers also got opportunity to become full fledged singers. Those who migrated from Lahore to India, started a new life here. Many businessmen (many of them black marketeers) who had earned lakhs of rupees during the war and the years of independence struggle as well, poured  money into the film industry. Thus, on all fronts, the film industry had new players, new investors and new topics for making films.

However, one change happened. The taste of Indian audience started to change in terms of music and the subject matter of the film stories. The few old players in music, who could not or did not cope up with the changing tastes of the audience, slowly faded out. Composers like Bulo C Rani, Khemchand Prakash, Hansraj Behl, SK Pal, Lachhiram, Madholal Master, Shankar Rao Vyas, Gobind Ram, Gyan Dutt, SD Batish, Nissar Bazmi, Khursheed Anwar, Ninu Majumdar etc. faded away by the mid 1950s. Many Muslim composers migrated to Pakistan. Composers who adapted themselves, like C Ramchandra, SD Burman, Hemant Kumar, Naushad etc. prospered for a longer period. New blood composers like Shanker-Jaikishen, Madan Mohan, OP Nayyar etc. bloomed quickly.

Same was the case with actors and actresses. Amongst these was one actress – Purnima. Born at Bombay on 2-3-1932 as Meher Bano, she was the daughter of a Lucknow Muslim mother and a Tamil Brahmin father – Ram Seshadri Aiyangar. He was working in the distribution office of producer director Kikubhai Desai (father of Manmohan Desai). While still in school Purnima started working in Hindi and Gujarati films from 1947 itself when she was hardly 15-16 year old. She got married to Shaukat Hashmi. After giving her a son and a divorce, he migrated to Pakistan.

In 1954, Purnima married producer director Bhagwandas Varma and stopped working. Her elder sister also had married producer director Nanubhai Bhatt. Their sons are Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. Purnima resumed working in films in 1957, when Bhagwandas was in financial difficulties. He died in 1962.

Purnima appeared as heroine or second lead in about 20 films. Her well known films are – ‘Thes’ (1949), ‘Patanga’ (1949), ‘Jogan’ (1950), ‘Gauna’ (1950), ‘Sagai’ (1951), ‘Baadal’ (1951), ‘Shagoofa’ (1953), ‘Pooja’ (1954), ‘Post Box No 999’ (1958), ‘Son of Sindbad’ (1958), ‘Kangan’ (1959), ‘Naya Kanoon’ (1965), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Budtameez’ (1966), ‘Humjoli’ (1970) etc. In all she acted in 152 films, though she claimed more than 200 films, in one of her interview. Her last film was ‘Sada Suhagan’-86, after which she retired. Her friends were Saira Bano, Shakeela and Dulari. Purnima died on 14-8-2013 in Mumbai.

There were two more Purnimas working in the film industry during the same years. One was Purnima Chaudhari who worked in 3 films in 1948. Another Purnima was an actress from Bengal, who acted only in films produced at Calcutta. She worked in about 9-10 films. Due to this, Purnima’s filmography gets mixed up many times.

Purnima’s  hero in the film ‘Nirmal’ was Amarnath (Bharadwaj). He is one of the ‘same name confusions’ victims. There were two Pt. Amarnath music directors, 1 actor Amar, 1 actor Amarnath and 1 actor/director K Amarnath. This Amarnath started his acting career in 1939 with Kidar Sharma’s ‘Dil Hi To Hai’. Graduating from doing small roles he was made the leading man in Dalsukh Pancholi’s film ‘Patjhad’, opposite to Meena (Shorey). The film was launched in 1947. Pancholi had to flee Lahore due to Partition riots, but he carried the negatives of the partially filmed ‘Patjhad’ with him. Though the film was censored in India in 1948, it seems it was never released.

Amarnath starred as hero in many other films like ‘Papiha Re’ (1948), ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949), ‘Nai Bhabhi’ (1950), ‘Kamal Ke Phool’ (1950), ‘Sheesh Mahal’ (1950), ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950), ‘Nai Zindagi’ (1951) etc. Then he switched over to supporting roles. In all, he worked in 79 films (CITWF data). His last film was ‘Khiladi’ (1968).

All the songs of ‘Nirmal’ were written by Moti, BA. This film was a special film for lyricist Moti BA, because this was his last film as a lyricist. Yogilal Upadhyaya aka Moti BA was born on 1-8-1919 at Devariya, UP. He did his BA in 1938 and MA in 1941, in addition to BT and ‘Sahitya Ratan’ from Benaras University. He was scouted by Ravindra Dave and Sardar Ranjit Singh, emissaries of Dalsukh Pancholi. At that time he was working as a journalist. He went to Lahore and stayed there for 2 years, enjoying company of writers, poets and major stars. He wrote songs for films like ‘Kaise Kahoon’ (1945).

He came to Bombay and started writing songs for films like ‘Subhadra’ (1946), ‘Bhakta Dhruv’ (1947), ‘Ek Kadam’ (1947), ‘Amar Asha’ (1947) etc. Some of his other films are ‘Saajan’ (1947), ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’ (1948), ‘Sindoor’ (1947), ‘Rimjhim’ (1949), ‘Raam Baan’ (1948), ‘Ram Vivah’ (1949), ‘Veer Ghatotkach’ (1949), ‘Rajput’ (1951) etc. He was much in demand, but after ‘Nirmal’ he decided to go back to his hometown and teach. He taught Logic, English Literature and History from 1952 to 1980. He wrote 4 books and won several awards. He died on 18-1-2009 at Devariya.

There is an enigma about lyricist Moti, that though he had done MA, why was he known as Moti, BA ?

Moti, BA is one of the very few artists who left the film world to pursue what he loved – teaching. I can remember another example – Sr. Shashi Kapoor who left a lucrative career as a child artist to pursue his studies in mathematics. He became a maths professor in an American university teaching his favourite subject of maths.

The cast of ‘Nirmal’ was Purnima, Amarnath, Shyam Kumar, Shanta Kunwar, Mirza musharraf, Habib, Cuckoo etc. The story of film Nirmal is-

Nirmal (Amarnath) is an honest young man who loves Purnima (Purnima) and gets married to her. He is sent to Calcutta by his office. He goes alone, leaving wife to look after his ailing father. After few months, when father is very ill, Nirmal leaves for home. Grabbing this opportunity, Champaklal (Shyam Kumar), a colleague in his office, does a fraud and the blame comes to Nirmal. Police arrest Nirmal the day his father dies. The story details how the courageous Purnima goes to Calcutta and proves Nirmal innocent, with the help of some friends. (643)

The film has 8 songs. 2 songs are already discussed. This is the third song. It is a song with a very good tune. . .

Today’s song is from film Raag Rang-52. The film was produced by Bali sisters, Bombay banner. The producer was Hari Darshan bali, the Director was Digvijay Bali ( elder brother of Geeta Bali) and the heroine of the film was Geeta Bali, opposite Ashok kumar. At this time, the age of Geeta Bali was just 22 years and Ashok kumar was almost double of her age, at 41 years !

Ashok kumar was probably the earliest star actor who was called an Evergreen Actor, because he continued to do Hero’s roles till he was 49 years old ! However, after he retired, Dev Anand overtook him by doing Hero’s roles till he was 66 years old. So, truly speaking, Dev Anand was the real Evergreen Hero ! But, surprisingly, a Meteor, or call it a Hurricane-if you like it- Called Rajesh khanna, swept these two first generation stalwarts and created a Record of doing Maximum Films as a Hero. You will be ( or may be not ) surprised to read that Rajesh Khanna has an Unbroken Record of doing 106 films as a solo Hero, followed by Dev Anand with 92 films and Ashok kumar at the 3rd number with 86 films as a Solo Hero !

In last so many years- till 1980 – I must have seen hundreds of Films- Hindi, Marathi, English, Tamil, Telugu, kannada, Malyalam and Konkani. In the Hindi films, I can not forget 3 actresses, who were Bubbly, playful, with innocent looks and with Natural acting talent. They were Meena Shorey, Nalini Jaywant and Geeta Bali. I enjoyed every film of these actresses, which i saw. It is difficult to forget the role and acting of Meena Shorey in film ” Ek thi Ladki-49″, or Nalini Jaywant in film ” Hum sab chor hain-56″, or Geeta Bali in film ” Aji Bas Shukriya-58″. These were all my favourite actresses. it is very unfortunate that they all met their deaths in very tragic circumstances.

Geeta Bali’s dancing eyes and her animated, expressive face which mirrored her soul were her most outstanding features. Yet life was snatched away from this vibrant personality at an achingly young age of 35.It is some consolation that Geeta crammed a lot into her short life: 80 odd films in a ten-year career.

She married struggling actor-turned-megastar Shammi Kapoor and mothered two children: a son and a daughter. Today, she is remembered as a wonderfully natural actress and a fabulous human being.She was quite close to her sisters and brother. her childhood pet name was KEETA.

True, Geeta’s reputation as an actress rests more on her performances than her roles. Natural, spontaneous and gifted with a spot-on sense of comic timing, she never really found a vehicle worthy of her talent. Largely a shade better than the movies she starred in, she frittered away her talents in B-grade films.

Probably the fact that she was born into a family that had to struggle for sheer survival and the fact that she reached the top through sheer grit had Geeta stress on quantity rather than quality. Film lore has it that when mentor [filmmaker] Kidar Sharma first met Geeta, she was living with her family in somebody’s bathroom!

Geeta, who was born on 30-11-1930 at Amritsar, as Harikirtan Kaur, had done a few small-time dancing roles in pre-Partition Punjab in films like Badnami-46, Kahan gaye-46 and Pat jhad-48, before moving to Mumbai. Impressed by her off-screen vivacity, Sharma cast Geeta in his Suhaag Raat (1948). Audiences related to her instantly and watched wide-eyed as she nonchalantly tossed her unconscious hero, Bharat Bhushan over her shoulder in a scene.

Soon, Geeta was inundated with contracts (that’s what they called film offers then). She accepted most. She won raves even in supporting roles like in the 1949 Suraiya starrer Badi Behan and the Madhubala starrer Dulari.

In 1951, she became a major star with Guru Dutt’s first hit, Baazi (she went on to do three other films under his direction). Geeta played gangster’s moll with a golden heart to Kalpana Kartik’s conventional heroine. But Geeta played her role with such gay abandon that hero Dev Anand divulges, “People came repeatedly to theatres to see Geeta’s spirited dancing to Tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana de.

Geeta proved she could do tragedy (Sharma’s Raj Kapoor starrer Bawre Nain) or and play the lighthearted heroine to comedian Bhagwan in the super successful Albela. Albela’s swinging C Ramchandra composed songs like Shola jo bhadkeand Sham dhale mere khidki tale made front-benchers dance with the stars and even fling coins on screen.

Pug-nosed Geeta was no conventional beauty, but that transparent face and that smile constantly flirting on her lips made sure you couldn’t tear your eyes away from her.

Watch Geeta Bali in the Guru Dutt-directed Jaal (1952). Dev Anand, a cigarette-smoking smuggler on the run from the police, tries to entice morally upstanding heroine Geeta into his web. Geeta evocatively communicates her struggle against, and her eventual surrender to, handsome Dev’s seduction call Yeh raat, yeh chaandni phir kahan.

Famously down-to-earth despite her star status, Geeta was the antithesis of the coy 1950s’ heroine. She often drove herself to her premieres in an open jeep. Those who knew her claim she was a Samaritan who touched the lives of whoever she met. She is said to have personally groomed Mala Sinha, then a newcomer.

To date, so many years after her death, her secretary Surinder Kapoor’s (Boney Kapoor’s father) productions begin with a shraddhanjali to Geeta Bali.

Shammi Kapoor entered her life when they worked in the quaintly named Miss Coca Cola and Coffee House together. On an impulse, Geeta played a small role of a man in Sharma’s Shammi Kapoor starrer Rangeen Raatein. On the film’s Ranikhet outdoor, Shammi and Geeta fell in love.

Kapoor was a year younger to her and was not yet a star, but the twosome were hell bent on marrying each other. Geeta had worked with Shammi’s eldest brother, Raj Kapoor in Bawre Nain, and with his father, Prithviraj Kapoor in Anand Math, Shammi was unsure about their reaction to this match.

But on August 23, 1955, with producer-director Hari Walia as witness, the couple were married at the Banganga Temple at 4 am.

Geeta continued to work after marriage in a few films like Sohrab Modi’s Jailor (1958), where she won raves as a blind girl. With Shammi Kapoor turning into a huge star and the birth of her two children Aditya (nicknamed Mickey) and Kanchan, she eased her workload.

The desire to do that one fulfilling role she would be remembered for prompted Geeta to attempt the production of a classic for herself. She started Rano, based on Rajinder Singh Bedi’s famous novel, Ek Chaddar Maili Si, based on a widow’s remarriage to her brother-in-law.

Upcoming star Dharmendra played her hero.

Geeta, had not been vaccinated for small pox, despite the fact her father too had died of Small Pox. She had ignored repeated warnings in the child hood. She contracted the dreaded disease while shooting the film. The best care was rushed to her, but her fever apparently reached 107 degrees. Her doctor saw a picture by his patient’s bedside and asked who the pretty lady was. The disease had so wracked Geeta’s frail frame that he didn’t recognise her as the same person!

Geeta Bali passed away on January 21, 1965, leaving behind eight-year-old Aditya and three-year-old Kanchan in the care of a devastated Shammi Kapoor.

Ironically, she was cremated in Banganga, not far from where she was married. ( adapted from Rediffmail.com, with thanks.)

Film Raag Rang-52 had 11 songs. 8 songs are already discussed and posted in the Blog. Today’s song is the 9th song. This is a lively duet. Since I have not seen the movie, I can not say on whom it is filmed, but from the lyrics, it looks that it might have been filmed on Geeta Bali. This duet is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Trilok Kapoor and chorus. Now, this singer Trilok Kapoor is a case of ‘ Same name confusion’. There was another actor Trilok Kapoor ( famous for the role of Mahadev in Mythological films) operating at the same time in the industry. Since he was the more famous one, most sites, Blogs and enthusiastic new music lovers credit this singer’s songs to the actor. I reproduce here what I wrote about this singer and the actor in my series ” Same name Confusions” posted on http://www.anmolfankaar.com, about 3 years ago.

About the Singer TRILOK KAPOOR….

He too was from Multan, just like the actor Trilok kapoor, and was keen on singing in films. He and his wife have sung many Punjabi songs.
Singer Trilok kapoor sang a song in film Birhan-48 (Tu chanda main teri chakori – a duet with Dilshad Begum- record No. GE 5232). The film was in the making in 1946 at Lahore, but was released in 1948 due to Partition in 47.

The singer of this song can not be the actor Trilok kapoor, for the simple reason that he was busy in making 4 films in 1946 in Bombay and it is impossible that just to sing a song in a film, anybody would go to Lahore in those tumultous days.
Anyway, after the Partition, the singer Trilok Kapoor became a displaced person. He came to Bombay and met MD Shyamsunder, who sympathised with him, being a Punjabi himself from the same region. Shyam Sunder gave him a song in Bhai Behan-1950, a duet with Shamshad Begum. He got a job in Radio and continued singing in films like Guru Dakshina, Raag rang, Titlee,Goonj, Naya Raasta, Miss Mala, Saloni, Tootey Khiloune, Laadla and finally his last song in Trolley Driver-1958.

So, the actor Trilok Kapoor and singer Trilok Kapoor are two different persons-

1) Actor Trilok Kapoor never sang after 1942.

2) Singer Trilok Kapoor never sang in any film featuring actor Trilok Kapoor.

3) If actor Trilok Kapoor was a singer himself, he would have sung his own songs in his films, instead of taking playback from other singers, e.g. G M Durrani in Mirza Sahibaan-47. Those who are singer actors rarely take playback from others.

4) The voice of Trilok Kapoor in songs and the dialogues in films is different.

5) It is likely that,actually the song of Aaj ki Duniya-40 and the duets of Raja Rani also were sung by the singer Trilok Kapoor, as he sang a song in Birhan in 1946, as mentioned above with record number. the entry in HFGK may be just a case of ” Same name confusion” (like few other cases). Since the songs are not available, the benefit of doubt should go to singer Trilok Kapoor because he was a singer and NOT to actor Trilok Kapoor as he was NOT a singer.

6) The final verdict was Shamshad begum had confirmed over Phone that Trilok Kapoor with whom she sang was NOT the actor/brother of Prithviraj Kapoor, but was a different person.

So,please remember,actor Trilok Kapoor and singer Trilok Kapoor were two different persons.

Let us now enjoy the catchy duet from the film Raag Rang-52. The Music Director is Roshan.

nadi cheer kar milte hain nit premi ?? deevaane

o o o
teri aas mein jeeti hoon nit ??
joraa jori
main roop gaanv ki chhori
gori chhori re
gori chhori re

Lyrics

nahin maaloom kyun
nahin maaloom ki piya jab se miley tum
tum
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
ho o
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
nahin maaloom ki piya jab se miley tum
tum
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
ho o
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum

tumse jis ghadi meri aankhen ladin
tumse jis ghadi meri aankhen ladin
na jaane kyun mere dil ki dhadkan badhi
na jaane kyun meri paayal kare rumjhum
rumjhum
nahin maaloom kyun
nahin maaloom ki piya jab se miley tum
tum
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
ho o
ek nirale nashe mein main hoon gum

ek chhoti si hai vinti meri mat taalna
main dagmaga rahi hoon
sajan sambhaalna
ek chhoti si hai vinti meri
mat taalna
main dagmaga rahi hoon
sajan sambhaalna
badi aasha se lagaaya hai ye kumkum
kumkum
nahin maaloom kyun
nahin maaloom ki piya jab se miley tum
tum
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
ho o
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum

jala ke tumne piya
meri mohabbat ka diya
aa aa aa aa
mohabbat ka diya
jala ke tumne piya
meri mohabbat ka diya
aa aa aa aa
mohabbat ka diya
andhere dil mein mere maano ujaala kiya
mahak uthhe meri aasha ke sab kusum
kusum
nahin maaloom kyun
nahin maaloom ki piya jab se miley tum
tum
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
ho o
ek niraale nashe mein main hoon gum
