Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14064

3500 – a good number to be. It is divisible by 7. Gives us 500.

Lets take a stock of the major numbers.

We complete 3500 days – unbroken sequence (almost 😉 ).
500 weeks.
14,000+ songs.

And, for the ticker watchers, we are just going to touch 10,100,000 visits to this blog.

In terms of artist stats, some very interesting total numbers,

486 – Music Directors + 109 posts with [*Unattributed] MD status
659 – Lyricists + 402 posts with [*Unattributed] Lyricist status
870 – Singers + 93 posts with unidentified singer names

Keeping out the unattributed and the unidentified, we are managing a whopping total of 2015 unique artists

I have written this phrase before. Our blog is history in the making – history of Hindi film music – one song at a time.

In terms if format, in terms of depth of content, in terms of dealing earnestly and critically with the subject matter, this blog is unique and without any peers. We are close to completing 10 years. Even now, we periodically get to see reader’s comments that tell about recently having discovered this hallowed destination on the internet, and what a fantastic treasure they have encountered. In fact, we have one such comment that came in today, just about four and a half hours ago. Paraphrasing from the text of this comment, a new reader Jayant Raleraskar writes that “. . . that’s a Great contribution indeed. In fact I am a new visitor to Atulsong. Of course I am enjoying and getting nice information as well.” Today, 3500 days after its inception, we still continue to get new readers who are impressed enough to leave such a heartening and an encouraging comment.

And the march continues. Ah yes, it is the next coming month also; but I refer to the dogged insistent forward journey that has been in progress for 3500 days today. The pun is on the word March. By the way, are you familiar with the best pun on ‘March’. It is a tiny two liner

“Can February March?
No, but April May.”

😀  😀  😀

Great journey so far. A grand motley crew of loving friends assembled on the bandwagon. And on towards the horizon – many a thousand more stations still to be covered on this beat. Maybe someone may ask us some day – why we do it? Brings to mind a similar incident from the mountaineering past. George Mallory, the famed young British climber who was part of the first three (unsuccessful) expeditions to conquer Mt Everest, in the 1920s. Mallory is famously quoted as having replied to the question “Why did you want to climb Mount Everest?” with the retort “Because it’s there”, which has been called “the most famous three words ever in mountaineering”.

Well, I think our answer may not be limited to these three words. The answer by us would be – “Because it is there, and we love it”.  🙂 🙂

And on this journey, we continue to discover, almost on a daily basis, something new and surprising about the Hindi film music.

Take today’s song for example. Yesterday when Atul ji and I exchanged emails about today being the 3500th daily anniversary of this endeavor, I thought about it, and then started searching for a song with the word ‘hazaar’ in it. After checking out a few examples, I settled on this song for this post today.

ek shama hai mehfil mein
parwaane hazaaron hain

or if I may take some poetic latitude here, I would like to surmise as

ek asad hai internet mein
padhne waale hazaaron hain

And the other reason I picked this song – aah well, I am sure some of you may have already guessed. Going thru the lyrics of this Geeta Dutt beauty from 1952, folks will find a suspicious shadow falling on to another iconic song from three decades later. Yes, I refer to the famous song from ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) –

in aankhon ki masti ke
mastaane hazaaron hain

In fact, not just mastaane, but also deewaane and maikhaane. Just take away the music and map the lyrics. I think we may have hit upon the original song that ‘inspired’ the famous hit song of ‘Umrao Jaan’.

The 1952 film ‘Baghdad’ is produced by JB Lulla, under the banner of Falcon Films, Bombay and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The star cast is listed as Ranjan, Bharti, Yashodhara Katju, Anwar, Veera, Kamal, Samson, S Nazeer, Kanta, Nagpal, Anant Prabhu, Bhupen Kapoor, Habib, Sabu (Tattoo), and Bhagwan. The eight songs of this film are penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, and the music is by Bulo C Rani.

Congratulations once again to all – milestones galore. Happy 3500th to all.

Song – Ek Shama Hai Mehfil Mein Parwaane Hazaaron Hain  (Baghdad) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Bulo C Rani

Blog Day : 3498 Post No. : 14057

The film that is reaching its Yippeee station today is the 1952 film ‘Anjaam’. A journey that started for this film a little over seven years ago – on 1st Jan, 2011. Just out of curiosity, I checked the list of posts for the songs posted on that date, I find that none of the songs on that day were new year songs. My curiosity heightened, I checked the previous new year days and the ones after this date. I find that on our blog, the tradition of new year songs starts with 1st Jan, 2012. Prior to that, on the three new years that came, we did not specifically have any new year songs. But that is a curiosity, to be handled in another post.

‘Anjaam’ is a social drama that is produced under the banner of Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. It is produced by VM Vyas and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors listed for this film in Geet Kosh is Vaijayanti Mala, Premnath, Kuldip Kaur, Yakub, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi, and Chitrlekha amongst others. The eight songs of this film are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Given below is the list of seven songs that came prior to this one.

 

Mere Barbaad Hone Ka Nazaaraa Dekhne Waale Anjaam 3412 1-Jan-11
Meri Naiyya Hai Manjhdhaar Anjaam 10093 16-Aug-14
Rut Mastaani Saamne Hai Raani Anjaam 11212 25-Jun-15
Makki Ke Kheton Mein Aana Ji Ho Piya Anjaam 11274 14-Jul-15
Bol O Baabu Kahaan Challa Chhuda Ke Mera Palla Anjaam 11321 26-Jul-15
Jab Ladka Keh De Haan Aur Ladki Keh De Naa Anjaam 11932 17-Mar-16
Baalam Ho To Aisa Anjaam 13367 25-Jun-17

 

The song that is being presented today – I had not heard it ever before today. It turns out that is a song that is very different from other normal songs. Although it is a full 3+ minutes song, and is published on one full side of a 78 rpm. But it is not a regular song. After a long instrumental prelude, we hear the verses of the song. And then, with just two short verses, spaced out over a little more than a minute, the song again goes back into instrumental mode. The lines that are sung in this song, are only a chorus of voices, and no other specific singer is identified. It may be likely that this song is just an accompaniment to a dance sequence in the film. Just guessing.

With this curious presentation, the film ‘Anjaam’ joins the ranks of films with all songs posted. Welcome ‘Anjaam’ to yippeee-land.

 

Song – Saanwar Ke Rang Raati  (Anjaam) (1952) Singer – Chorus, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Madan Mohan

Today’s song is from film Maa-52. It is sung by Manna Dey, under the baton of composer S.K.Pal.

The film was produced by Ashok Kumar and Sawak Vachha for Bombay Talkies. The director was Bimal Roy. The screen play was also by Bimal Roy on the story of Swaraj Banerjee.Dialogues were by Nabendu Ghosh and the translations were done by Nazir Hussain and Asit Sen (roly poly actor and Director). The cast was Leela Chitnis, Bharat Bhushan,Shyama, Nazir Hussain,Asit Sen, Manju, B.M.Vyas, Achla Sachdev, Bikram Kapoor, Krishnakant, Samar Chatterjee, Bharata Vyas(uncredited) etc etc.

Nabendu Ghosh (27.3.1917 to 15.12.2007) was born in Dhaka. He was a famous Bangla writer, who joined New Theatres. In 1951 he left New Theatres and joined Bimal Roy in Bombay. He wrote Screen plays/dialogues for most of Bimal Roy’s films. After Roy’s death, he worked with Hrishikesh Mukherjee for a long time. In 1988, he directed his only film “Trishagni’. After his death, his autobiography,”Eka Nauker jatri” was published.

Maa-52 was Bimal Roy’s first film in Bombay. He was born on 12-7-1909, in Suvapur village in East Bengal. His father Hemchandra Roy was a very rich landlord. He was a simple and kind person. After he died, it was known that his servants had misappropriated all his money and land and the family came on the road. The big family shifted to Calcutta in 1930-31.

Bimal Roy joined New Theatres as an assistant to Nitin Bose. He soon became an expert Cameraman and shot films like Chandidas, Devdas, manzil, Grihdaah, Maya, Mukti etc. In 1937, he was married to Manobina Sen. He continued as a Cameraman till 1942 doing more films like Abhagin,Badi Didi, Abhinetri, Haar jeet and Meenakshi.

By 1942, due to restrictions on supply of raw film and financial crisis, added to Ego problems of Big artistes and the management, New Theatres came into problems. One after another most artistes like Barua, Debki Bose, Nitin Bose, Saigal, Prithwiraj kapoor, Kumar, Kidar Sharma etc left Calcutta and reached Bombay. Bimal Roy did a documentary on the Bengal Famine in 1943 and then directed his first Bangla/Hindi bilingual film Udayer Pathe/Hamraahi in 1944. The successful film ran for an year in Calcutta and established him. Then came Anjangadh,Mantramugdha and Pehla Admi.

Bimal Roy came to Bombay for the premiere of film Pehla Admi-50. Here he met his old collegue Hiten Chaudhari,who was working in Bombay Talkies-supposed to be a hub for all artistes coming from Bengal. He took Bimal Roy to Bombay Talkies and he got his first film in Bombay- Maa-52, for direction. Then came Parineeta-53. Bimal Roy then established his own Bimal Roy Productions and made many films. He directed films like Do Bigha Zamin, Naukari, Devdas, Madhumati, Sujata, Parakh, Prempatra and Bandini for his own productions. For others too he directed films like Biraj Bahu, Baap Beti and Yahudi. Bimal Roy Productions mad films like Amanat, Parivaar, Apradhi Kaun,Usne kaha tha,Kabuliwala and Benazir where other directors did the films.

Bimal Roy got 11 Film Fare Awards for Best films and Best Direction in all. He got several National and International awards too. He was a heavy smoker. In 1965, Lungs Cancer was detected and he died on 8-1-1966

Bimal Roy was not only a very sensitive person, but he was like an Institution for subordinates, who learnt a lot from him. He was like a complete school of film making and gave the film industry great film makers and writers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Gulzar, Nabendu Ghosh, Salil Chaudhari ( Do Bigha Zamin-53 was based on his story Rikshawala, written in the 40s. Parakh was also his story and he wrote screen play for Prempatra) and Basu Bhattacharya. After Bimal Roy’s death, Hrishikesh Mukherjee dedicated film Anupama to his memories.

One special characteristic of Bimal Roy was song picturisation on character and unknown artistes ( like Guru Dutt). Sachin Shankar sang Parakh song-kya hawa chali. His production manager’s wife Dolly kapoor sang 2 songs in Bandini. Rajdeep, a character artiste sang”mat ro mata laal tere bahutere”in film. W.M.Khan sang in Kabuliwala. In same film a small time actor M.V.Rajan also sang a song.

Bimal Roy shot a major part of film Madhumati in Nainitaal. When he came back to Bombay, to his dismay, he found that 60% shots were spoiled. Without losing head, he shot all those scenes in Bhandardara-near Bombay and the film was edited so well, that nobody felt any difference !

Film Maa-52 was a solid tear jerker competing with any Madras film from AVM or Gemini. The story of the film was…

Chander Babu (Nazir Hussain) is a retired Post office employee, now working with the local Zamindar, on a very low salary. He and his wife (Leela Chitnis) live in Chandanpur. They have two sons. Elder son Rajan (Paul Mahendra) is married to a wealthy family girl (Achla Sachdev), who is very arrogant. He is studying final Law course. The younger son Bhanu( Bharat Bhushan ) is good natured and helpful. He studies in college. he is in love with a girl Meena (Shyama) and her father approves their marriage.

Rajan needs Rs. 300 for his exams, but his father can not get this much money. His own wife has the money but refuses to give. One day Bhanu is returning to his house in the night when he hears “Thief, Thief ” He finds that the Thief is no one else, but his own father who tries theft for Rs 300 to give the fees. Bhanu takes the blame on himself, is caught and jailed.

When Bhanu is released and comes to meet his parents, he is told by Rajan that they don’t want to see even his face. Bhanu goes away, is helped by an advocate and gets a Bank job. His father confesses everything to his wife, gets a shock and dies. The mother goes in search of Bhanu. She is treated like a maid in Rajan’s house. Bhanu works hard and becomes a manager. He sends Rs100 money order every month to his mother, but Rajan and his wife take that Money order, without mother’s knowledge. Bhanu meets Meena and their love kindles again. She tells him about his mother.

Bhanu comes back and meets the mother. He realises that she is treated lie a maid by Rajan and wife. He goes to Rajan, fights with him, drags him to his mother. Rajan and his wife repent and ask for a pardon. The Maa pardons them. Bhanu and Meena’s marriage is announced.

Film Maa-52 had only 6 song. Today’s song is the fourth song to be posted here. It is sung by Manna Dey. The Music Director S.K.Pal- Surya Kumar Pal, was the nephew of composer Ramchandra Pal. He first joined Shalimar pictures of Poona and in the end did few films for Bombay Talkies. In all he did 19 films. His last film was Dhola Maaru-56, in which, for the first and last time, he used Lata Mangeshkar for his songs. The song is picturised on Leela Chitnis….

Lyrics

aakaash bhai bhaanu ??

aas bhai hai niraas

aaj achaanak aandhi aayi

sneh bhare maa ke madhuvan se
roothh gaya madhumaas

apne jeewan ka dhan kho kar
laut rahi hai maa ro ro kar
laut rahi hai maa ro ro kar
haay lagi kismat ki thhokar
tooti man ki aas
Raam gaye vanwaas
haaaaye

Blog Day : 3477 Post No. : 13971

 

Yesterday (23rd Jan) was the passing away anniversary of Shankar Dasgupta. A talented singer of repute in the industry, he may not have been in the same league as the top rung singers. But in the next supporting row, his capabilities and effectiveness has been judged a notch better than contemporaries like GM Durrani, SD Batish and Khan Mastana.

Born in 1927, sadly not too many details are available about his early growing years. He had a deep seated interest in music right from childhood, a trait that his mother recognized and encouraged him to follow his interests. From the age of eight years itself, the young Shankar started formal training and practice of classical music.

As with most singers of his era, his idol also was KL Saigal. In some of his songs, one can feel that he attempting to emulate Saigal Sb. Especially listening to the song “Dil Ki Lagi Ko Koi Na Jaane” from the 1954 film ‘Sheeshe Ki Deewar’, one gets feeling of the presence of Saigal Sb’s voice.

Music director Anil Biswas give him his first break in the film ‘Milan’ in 1946. Over the next approximately two decades, he has sung about 50 songs in thirty one movies. His last song is from the 1968 film ‘Kahin Din Kahin Raat’. His end came unexpectedly, as a result of an unfortunate and freak train accident at the Matunga Road station in Bombay.

Today’s song is from the 1952 film ‘Izzat’. The words are written by Buta Ram Sharma, and the music is composed by Bulo C Rani. The song tells about the realities of life, about how short and ephemeral this human life is. The voice of Shankar Dasgupta sounds so very suitable and effective in rendering this philosophical thought.

This is the 800th song of Geeta Roy/Dutt to be showcased on our blog.

Blog Day : 3476 Post No. : 13966


ना ये चाँद होगा

ना तारे रहेंगे
मगर हम हमेशा तुम्हारे रहेंगे

A promise of a voice, that continues to remind, of a feeling, of a little tangy flavored honey, slipping down the taste buds in the rear of the tongue. A voice that is sweet, that is humble. It may haunt you, but it will never come to you as an onslsught; it surely will over power your heart, but more in the manner of a polite request saying “Naa Jaao Sainyaan Chhuda Ke Bainyaan. . .”.

A personality that was more about inward expressions. Time was in the early sixties, as her singing assignments were dwindling, in a chance phone conversation with OP Nayyar, the simple complaint she aired to him was – “Aap to hum ko bhool gaye”. The reference of course was to the many hits she had sung for him, for the duration of a short stint, from 1952 to 1958. And after delivering the super hit “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” (‘Howrah Bridge”) in 1958, there is really very little, actually nothing, that OPN offered her to sing. It is quite a wonder that OPN went from strength to strength starting with ‘Aasmaan’ in 1952, and working through ‘Baaz’ (1953), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Mr And Mrs 55’ (1955), ‘CID’, ‘Chhoo Mantar’, and ‘Mr Lambu’ in 1956, ‘Johnny Walker’ and ‘Ustad’ in 1957, and then ‘Howrah Bridge’, ’12 O’Clock’, ‘Mujrim’ and ‘Mr Qartoon MA’ in 1958. Thereafter, no more OP Nayyar songs for her. In any case, as we progress from 1952 to 1958, there is a noticeable increment in Asha Bhosle’s share of singing for OPN.

In a private conversation many years later, OPN did express his regrets that he completely cut off Geeta from his portfolio. With such dwindling fortunes, it is still not a wonder that she was still able to clock close to 1300 songs in Hindi films, from 1946 to 1971, much better than many of her contemporaries. That was the magnetism in her voice.

Today, we bring on board, the 800th song of this nightingale. The film is ‘Badnaam’ from 1952. The lyrics are by Shailendra and music is by Basant Prakash. The melancholia that she has the ability to generate, sometimes defies the thought that she is also able to sing the likes of “Mera Naam Chin ChinChu”. Maybe the grand success of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gaya. . .” from ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) was a portend of the path of destiny she was to follow.

This song also, tells of the sadness of a broken heart, as the clouds of gloom are gathering in the mind’s sky. And the love is itself in tears – “प्यार रोने लगा”. It was not just an expression tutored by the music director, to sing it in a particular manner. It was the reality of her life that she lived – all the way to her passing away in 1972.

It was not just the season of rains. It was her whole life.

Song – Ghir Aayi Hai Ghor Ghata  (Badnaam) (1952) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Basant Prakash

Lyrics

ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

tha kya pata yun badal jaayega aasmaan
yun bante bante ujad jaayega aashiaan
pahunchi saahil pe jab meri naiyya
gham dubone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

kaisi ye mushkil jo sochun wo kar na sakoon
haaye
main aaj marna bhi chaahun to mar na sakoon
yun mere saamne mere dil ka
khoon honay laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

था क्या पता यूं बादल जाएगा आसमाँ
यूं बनते बनते उजाड़ जाएगे आशियाँ
पहुंची साहिल पे जब मेरी नैया
ग़म डुबोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

कैसी ये मुश्किल जो सोचूँ वो कर ना सकूँ
मैं आज मारना भी चाहूँ तो मर ना सकूँ
यूं मेरे सामने मेरे दिल का
खून होने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

चाँदनी रातें प्यार की बातें

खो गई जाने कहाँ

That is the very first introduction to this extremely versatile actress of the Hindi cinema. The song was played in the weekly Chitrahaar program one evening. And the kid me was soaking in the performance with an open mouth and extreme ignorance of the emotions being dealt with. The primeval image carried in was that of a serious actress given over to sad roles and sad songs. Little did I know that I couldn’t have more further from reality.

Remembering Geeta Bali, the actress extraordinaire, on the anniversary of her passing away (21st Jan).

Some months or a year later, the film came on to Doordarshan, and then I got another taste of this very song; but in accompaniment I also got to see “Chori Chori Meri Gali Aana Hai Bura” and “De Bhi Chuke Hum Dil Nazraana Dil Ka”. After this encounter, I would get to see more of her in other films aired on Doordarshan – ‘Anand Matth’ (1952), ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950), ‘Baazi’ (1951) etc. Other films would come later – ‘Baaz’ (1953), ‘Albela’ (1951), ‘Badi Behan’ (1949) etc., not essentially in that order.

Through these films, I began to know her much better, as compared to my initial impressions from the first song of ‘Jaal’ that I had viewed. A persona with a very vivacious and alive presence on the screen – a live wire presence that would light up whatever frame she was in. There was such an immense amount of communication happening through her expressions – the smiles, the twitching of the eyebrows, the tilt of the neck, the movements and more. The amount of expressions and emotions she would cram into and convey in one line of a song, was equivalent to what most other performers would convey in an entire song. And the energy she would impart to whatever scene and whatever role she would be in, was and continues to be a delight to watch.

Many years after she passed away, and her erstwhile husband Shammi Kapoor, had moved into senior character roles, interviews and articles began to appear that attempted to explain the transformation of Shammi Kapoor as an actor, from the sombre roles in films like ‘Rail Ka Dibba’ (1953), ‘Laila Majnu’ (1953) and ‘Shama Parwaana’ (1954) to the flamboyant energetic roles in ‘Del Deke Dekho’ (1959), ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957) and ‘Junglee’ (1961). It has been said that this transformation was an influence of Geeta Bali’s style and expressions of the characters she did on screen. Shammi Kapoor magnified that expression manifold with his own energy, and became the most successful swashbuckling hero of the 1960s.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Jalpari’ from 1952. The storyline is about a human sailor adventurer Ashok Kumar, who catches the fancy of the fairy princess of the undersea world. The role of the Jalpari, the fairy princess, is played by Geeta Bali. She has the human mortal brought to her palace in the undersea world, and tries to convince him to join her as her consort, and she would make him immortal. This song is her effort to woo him and his emotions for herself.

The lyricists name for this song is not specified. The music is by Pt Gobind Ram and the singing voice is that of Shamshad Begam.

Once again, a memory tickler from the yesteryears, to remember this peerless performer – she passed away this day 52 years ago, at an unimaginable age of 34 years. A salute to this darling performer of the screen – alive forever, in memories.

Song – Khushi Ke Phool Liye Aa Gaye Bahaar Ke Din  (Jalpari) (1952) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Pt Gobind Ram

Lyrics

khushi ke phool liye
aa gaye bahaar ke din
yehi bahaar ke din
ab banenge pyaar ke din

ho oo oo
raja aaj na jaane doon
main bhi jhoomun tu bhi jhoom
kal ki khabar kisko maloom
chham chham chham chham chhoom
chham chhoom

o raja singaar sajaaye
roop ki rani aayi
roop ki rani aayi
hans le gaa le mauj manaa le
roop ki rani aayi
hans le gaa le mauj manaa le
roop ki rani aayi
duniya mein macha de dhoom
tu bhanwra ban kar ghoom
aur ke phool par jhoom
chham chham chham chham chhoom
chham chhoom

o dewaane kisi ka ho ja
zulfon ki chhaaon mein so ja
o dewaane kisi ka ho ja
zulfon ki chhaaon mein so ja
jaam e mohabbat pee kar jhoom
jaam e mohabbat pee kar jhoom
kal ki khabar kisko maloom
chham chham chham chham chhoom
chham chhoom

oo oo oo
raja aaj na jaane doon
main bhi jhoomun tub hi jhoom
kal ki khabar kisko maloom
chham chham chham chham chhoom
chham chhoom

“Saloni” (1952) was directed by J P Advani for Goodluck pictures. This movie had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Purnima, Gulab, Mohana etc in it.

The movie had eight sons in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saloni” (1952) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Arjun Dev Ashq is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

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


Song-Meri veena ke sur saat re (Saloni)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Arjun Dev Ashq, MD-Basant Prakash

Lyrics

meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
sur saat re man bhaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

pahle sur ne li angdaayi
bas gaya man mein harjaai
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
mil gayi man ko maat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

teeje sur mein dil ki dhadkan
kaanp gaya bholi ka tan man
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
koi lagaaye ghaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

koi khada ye soch raha hai ae ae
koi khada ye soch raha hai
baaqi suron mein kya rakkha hai
soch sako to itna jaano
soch sako to itna jaano
badlenge din raat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

Blog Day : 3456 Post No. : 13862

Today is 3 january 2018 and we are into the early days of 2018. This is that time of the year when most people feel extremely resolutionary (not to be confused with revolutionary). One regular of our blog commented in our whatsapp group that it is not safe to go on morning walk in these early days of the year as the streets would be full of this highly resolutionary early morning walkers. It is however expected that things would be back to normal after the first week. 🙂

Unlike many who keep away till midnight on new year eve, I went to bed early and when I woke up on first january 2018, it was 5:45. It was late by my standards, but I realised that there was no electricity. The state Electricity Board was letting people in my locality down for the second morning in a week. Previous morning was a sunday, but this first day of the year was a working day.

As is my wont, I took Chhote, an extremely enthusiastic early morning walker with me. When I came out, I noticed that it was extremely dark and foggy weather outside. It was nearly 6 AM, but I was unable to see much ahead in the pitch dark. Undeterred, we began our walk groping my way out in dark from memory. It was a cold ang gloomy new year morning and it was unlikely that the early morning sun would be visible. No soul, whether any humans or even street dogs or tree monkeys could be seen. Resolute new year morning walkers are conspicuous by their absence. In any case, I have realised by now that most people staying in this locality (supposedly the top people in the organisation) are not noted for any great determination as far as early morning walking is concerned. They all wait for fair weather before deciding to come out and such fair weather is rarely available in these days. In other words, I failed to come across any new year resolutionaries on my morning walk on the first day of the year.

By the time I brought Chhote back, the visibility had improved and then I took Bhole with me on his morning walk. For us, it was just another day of morning walk, where I felt a bit let down because I started my morning walk some half an hour later than planned.

After I came back with Bhole, the next phase of my morning activity takes place in the kitchen. As soon as I go towards the kitchen, I am greeted by the persistent meowing of Pixie, a black cat, who was a tiny kitten a few months ago but now she has grown into a huge fat cat, weighing some 5 KG. This is the time when I prepare the meal of the dogs. I have become a good dog chef by now. Even the cat expects me to feed her every time she sees me. I have kept two tiny pots in the courtyard where Pixie roams around after coming out from a small abandoned room opening to the courtyard that she has occupied. I pour milk on one of her pots but she is more interested in the other stuff in my other hand that is her version of kurkure. I would throw a piece away at a distance. She would grab that piece and would come near me. It has become a ritual with her that she would bring that piece back and then eat the first piece standing near me. When I throw the next piece, she goes near the peace and eats it there. That gives me the opportunity to go back to the kitchen. After every piece, she demands for the next piece. This continues as long as I am in the kitchen.

After putting Bhhole-Chhote’s cooker on the oven, I went towards my room and switch the computer on. It is then that I had my first look at the blog, some two hours after I am done with my pets. Unlike in the previous days, when I would start preparing for the first post, I had already ensured posting of two songs after midnight, even when I was asleep.

As mentioned earlier, there was no electricity. I was managing my light and computer requirements through inverter. But geiser cannot work on inverter. In other words, there was no hot water for taking bath. It is the first day of the year, and even if it was not, one had to take bath. I reminded myself that I used to take cold water bath in winters in my younger days including during my stay at Jabalpur. So I had done it in the past and I could do it again. So I willed myself and took cold water bath. 🙂 One always feels nice after taking bath. The fact that you did something that very few people would even dare to do also made me feel good about my mental strength. It is all in the mind, I keep reminding myself as well as others. 🙂

Then I went to office. Today was the first day of the week as well, so it was a day of meeting for us. It was a new year day and people were in a mood to greet each other rather than work. Still we managed to get our work done reasonably well. Most people did not seem too much into new years resolutions though. So I was alone in feeling quite enthusiastic about the new year.

In other news, I was following the Ranji Trophy final between Delhi and Vidarbha quite keenly. I was supporting Vidarbha, the underdogs, as I had lived in Nagpur for two years in the past. I was quite pleased when I found Vidarbha rout Delhi by nine wickets to become Ranji trophy champions on the first day of year 2018.

As for the blog, we covered four songs on the first day of the year and also on the second day. The regulars have got active and they are contributing a good number of writeups. This has ensured that we are meeting our resolutions of posting “debutant” movie songs and YIPPEE movie songs everyday. Let us see how long this resolution holds for us.

Starting from second day of the year, we have started to provide blog day number as well as post number with every writeup. This was a new year resolution by Sudhir Ji. 🙂

Incidentally, Sudhir Jee reminds me that today (3 january 2018) is the 3456th day for the blog and that is a “honky tonk” number for the blog. 🙂

What did we do on the other four digit honky tonk days for the blog ? 1234th day fell on 4 december 2011. Dev Anand had passed away the previous day so that day was the day of tribute to Dev Anand in the blog. Three out of six songs posted that day were about Dev Anand. 2345th day fell on 19 december 2014. Three songs were covered on that day including a new song of 1991 discussed by the seniormost contributor of the blog in his raagmala series. 🙂

So we see that these honky tonk numbers have fallen around december-january. And I notice that I was based in three different places in three different states when the blog achieved these “honky tonk” number days.

The song under discussion is neither a debutant movie song nor a YIPPEE song. It is an in between song, so to say. Unless we cover songs from movies that have several songs left, we cannot take them towards their YIPPEEhood. This song from “Ajeeb Ladki” (1952) is the sixth (out of ten songs) from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and G M Durrani. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

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.

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

Today (16 november 2017) is the 50th death anniversary of Roshan (14 july 1917- 16 november 1967).

It was a Roshan composition that was the first song to be discussed in the blog nine years ago. Roshan composed 424 songs in 55 released movies (plus one unreleased movie) during his 18 years long career from 1949 to 1967. This blog contains 326 of his songs, covering songs from all of his released movies. As many as 30 of these movies have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So now we have 98 more Roshan compositions left to be covered from 25 unYIPPEED movies (plus one unreleased movie).

Some of the unYIPPEED movies have just one song left to be covered but those songs are rare songs which I have not been able to locate. “Bedardi”(1951) and “Naubahaar”(1952) are two movies which have remained unYIPPEED because the final song of these movies have so far proved to be elusive.

As a tribute to Roshan, here is a song from “Raag Rang”(1952).

“Raag Rang”(1952) was the inhouse production of Geeta Bali and her siblings. The movie was produced by Har Darshan Bali and directed by Digvijay Bali for Bali Sisters, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar (then 41 years old) starring opposite Geeta Bali (then 22 years old). The movie also had Ruma Guha Thakurta, Sudha Bali, Madan Puri, Agha, Raja Paranjpe, Sundar, Janki Das, S Nazir etc in it.

Nine songs (out of 11) from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the tenth and penultimate song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Sarshar Sailaani 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. Seeing that Lata sang eight songs in it, my guess is that she sang these songs (including this one) for Geeta Bali.


Song-Shaque nahin rupaye mein paai ka (Raag Rang)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa

ye duniyaa
ye duniyaa heraa pheri hai
kabhi teri hai to kabhi meri hai
kabhi teri hai to kabhi meri hai
tudunaa tudunaa shur
kali kali manshur
o oh oh baabuji
o baabuji
khel safaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa

chatak chatak chatakhaare lekar
sun’ne waale mere taraane
muft bari ke gaye zamaane
jald nikaalo do do aane
o naa naa naa
ek aanaa ham nahin maangtaa
time hai ye mahangaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa

dhan daulat ke matwaalon ki
har baat niraali hoti hai
har baat niraali hoti hai
baazaar mein nikle deewaalaa
aur ghar mein deewaali hoti hai
aur ghar mein dewaali hoti hai
hai ye bhi
hai ye bhi rang jamaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa
shaq nahin rupaye mein paai kaa
duniyaa hai naam safaai kaa
