“Halla Gulla” (1954) was produced and directed by Bhagwan for Bhagwan Art Productions, Bombay. The movie had Bhagwan, Shakila, Sajjan, Baburao, Leela Gupte, Leela Gandhi , Begam Bai, Suneeta, Salvi, Qamar, Sukumar, Bhagwan Rao “Aankh”, Balaram, Deepak, Yashwant, Swami etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. All these nine songs were Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets ! This must be a record of sorts where all songs of a movie are duets and are sung by the same pair of singers.

It would seem that Bhagwan had lip synced in Rafi’s voice. The actress lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice could be either Shakeela or Leela Gandhi or Leela Gupte. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Saba Afghani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nisaar Baazmi.


Song-Yoon na chhedo balam koi na aa jaaye (Halla Gulla)(1954) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Saba Afghani, MD-Nisar Bazmi

Lyrics

yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye
tumko nahin sharam
tumko nahin sharam
mohe laaj aaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

ek to sataaye mohe bairi hawaayen
aanchal udaayen kabhi laten bikhraayen
ek to sataaye mohe bairi hawaayen
aanchal udaayen kabhi laten bikhraayen
dooje tum to piya
mohe na sataao piya
mohe na sataao
tumko to aaye maza
mora jiya jaaye
ho mora jiya jaaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

ghoonghat se roop gori tera pukaare
naina bulaayen tere kar ke ishaare
ghoonghat se roop gori tera pukaare
naina bulaayen tere kar ke ishaare
ye sharmeeli ada
kise na lubhaaye bata
kise na lubhaaye
aise mein door bhala
kaise raha jaaye
ho kaise raha jaaye

yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

kyun aaj pyaar bhari karte ho baaten
samjhi main khoob sajan tumhri ye ghaaten
kyun aaj pyaar bhari karte ho baaten
samjhi main khoob sajan tumhri ye ghaaten
dekho mori kasam
aise na banaao mohe
aise na banaao
kar doongi shor abhi
paas jo tum aaye
ho paas jo tum aaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

This song is an uplifting song that contains the message that life is god’s gift and one must enjoy it, rather than waste it in unnecessaily worrying about things.

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

[Ed Note: Regarding the line in the song “har aan hans le bol le“, the word “aan” in this context carries the meaning ‘moment’; “har aan” here means ‘every moment’.]

Today’s song is from a film called ‘Shiv Kanya’ (1954). The title may surprise some readers. Did Bhagwan Shiv ji have a daughter? Some people may brush it off thinking that it is yet another fruit of the fertile imagination of the “story department” of the production house. Can’t blame them either, because film makers are known experts in creating close relatives of popular film characters. Some examples are ‘Son of Aladdin’ (1939), ‘Daughter of Hatimtai’ (1940 and 1955) or even ‘Son of Zimbo’ (1966). Poor Alladin or Hatimtai would not be even knowing that they had a son or a daughter !

However, as far as mythological film subjects are concerned, there is absolutely no need to imagine or cook up stories, because the old scriptures like Puraanas provide varied situations for making films. That is how there is a film called ‘Krishna Arjun Yuddh’ in 1934, 1945 and 1971, based on a story from Bhagwat Mahapuraan. We also have ‘Ram Hanuman Yuddh’ in 1957 and 1975, based on Valmiki Ramayan. There was even a strange sounding film called ‘Shankar, Seeta, Anusuya” in 1965, made on a story from Garud Puraan and then there was a film called ‘Vish Waman ‘ (1936) based on Waman Puran.

When I first came across this film ‘Shiv Kanya’ in the mid 50s, I was perplexed, because I was not aware of Shiv Ji having a daughter too ! I knew about Kartikeya and Ganesh. Then I looked into a book ‘Stories from Puraanas’ and I learnt about it. Stories in Puraanas have sometimes slightly different versions in different Puraans. For example, Ram Hanuman Yuddh is mentioned in Valmiki Ramayan and you will find a modified version in Vishnu Puraan also. This is because Puraanas are based on Shrutis and there are additions by many scholars over the centuries.

As far as Shiv Kanya is concerned, it is a story of Manasa Devi. (Interestingly, there is a Goddess in Greek Mythology, with the name Ma Na Sa).

Ma Manasa Devi, the snake goddess, is worshipped by Hindus, mainly for the prevention and cure of snakebites and infectious diseases like smallpox and chicken pox as well as for prosperity and fertility. She stands for both ‘destruction’ and ‘regeneration’, akin to a snake shedding its skin and being reborn.

The idol of the Manasa Devi Goddess is depicted as a graceful lady with her body, adorned with snakes and sitting on a lotus or standing on a snake, under a hooded canopy of seven cobras. She is often seen as ‘the one-eyed goddess’, and sometimes portrayed with her son Aastika on her lap.

Also known as ‘Nagini,’ the female serpentine avatar or ‘Vishahara’, the goddess who annihilates poison, Manasa, in the Hindu mythology, is believed to be the daughter of sage Kasyapa and Kadru, and the sister of the serpent king Sesha. She is also the sister of Vasuki, king of Nagas and the wife of Sage Jagatkaru. I present here a simplified version of the myth regards Manasa as the daughter of Lord Shiva. Legends have it that she was rejected by her father Shiva and husband Jagatkaru, and hated by her stepmother, Chandi, who scooped out one of Manasa’s eyes. So, she appears to be foul-tempered, and benevolent only towards her devotees.

Manasa, due to her mixed parentage, is denied full godhead. Ancient Hindu legends in the Puranas, narrate the story of the birth of this powerful serpentine goddess. Sage Kashyapa created goddess Manasa from his ‘mana,’ or mind, so she could control the reptiles that were creating havoc on earth and Lord Brahma made her the presiding deity of snakes. It is believed that Lord Krishna granted her divine status and she established herself in the pantheon of gods.

During the monsoon season, Goddess Manasa is worshipped, mainly in the eastern Indian states of Bengal, Assam, Jharkhand, and Orissa, throughout the months of June, July and August (Ashaad – Shraavan), a time when the snakes leave their nesting ground and come out into the open and become active. In Bangladesh, the Manasa and Ashtanaag Puja is a month-long affair spanning July and August. Devotees pay obeisance to goddess Manasa and perform various ‘pujas’ or rituals to appease her. Special ‘murtis’ or statues of the goddess are sculpted, various sacrifices made, and prayers chanted. In some places, worshippers are seen to pierce their bodies, poisonous snakes are displayed on the altar, and live shows depicting the life and legends of Manasa Devi are performed. (From the book ‘Hindu Mythology-Gods and Goddesses’ by Acharya Shyam Purohit.)

And this is what ‘Hindu Daivat in India’ by Shrinivas Potdar says – “Manasa Devi is also known as the snake Goddess who is worshipped mainly in Bengal and other North-Eastern states of India. It is believed that Goddess Manasa is the one who controls all the snakes on Earth and a snake bite can be cured by worshipping Her. People also worship Goddess Manasa for fertility and prosperity. According to the legends Goddess Manasa is the daughter of Lord Shiva. However some scriptures suggest that she is the daughter of Sage Kashyapa and is distantly related to Shiva. She is the sister of Vasuki and wife to Sage Jagatkaru. Due to the confusion in her parentage, Goddess Manasa has been denied the position which other deities enjoy. Hence, she is an extremely furious Goddess for those who refuse to worship Her while extremely kind to those who worship Her with devotion.”

Film ‘Shiv Kanya’ was made by Chandrakala Pictures, produced by Ravji Bhai Patel and Sharad Desai and was directed by Sharad’s father, Dhirubhai Desai.

Dhirubhai Desai was a Hindi and Gujarati film director. He was born in Kaliawadi, near Navsari, Gujarat, on 31-1-1908. He started at Sharda Studios in 1927 by assisting AP Kapoor. He completed Gujarati film ‘Maya No Rang’, which was left unfinished by PV Chavan and Sunder Rao Nadkarni, when Bhogilal Dave took over his United Pictures Syndicate in 1929. His early work was in silent films of action (17 silent films), in Sharada and later with Indulal Yagnik.

He also worked with Saroj Films of Nanubhai Desai. In 1933, he set up his own studio – Vishnu Cinetone and made ‘Suryakumari’ (1933) with Natwar Shyam Manyar and Chaturbhai Patel. Later he owned Chandrakala Pictures also. After 1940 he directed mainly B grade Mythological films, usually remakes of his silent films. He was one of the few silent film makers, who had a long career in Hindi and Gujarati films. He had directed 17 silent films and 56 talkie films in Hindi. Some of his notable Hindi films are ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1935), ‘Fashionable Wife’, ‘Bhakta Prahlad’ (1946), ‘Bhakta Pundalik’, ‘Oonchi Haveli’, ‘Saaranga’ (1960), ‘Kailashpati’, ‘Badrinath Yatra’ and ‘Sampoorna Teerth Yatra’ etc. His last film was ‘Daaku Aur Bhagwan’ (1975). He passed away on 30-7-1990.

The film’s story is written by Pt. Narottam Vyas. Born in Moradabad (UP) in 1896, Pandit ji edited some magazines in Calcutta. He first wrote the story of  film ‘Pooran Bhagat’ (1933), but his name was not in the credits. He also wrote for film “Seeta” (1934). Coming to Bombay he joined Bhavnani Productions and then Prabhat. In all he wrote stories of 50 films. He also wrote more than 50 books. After producing and directing some films, he was fed up and retired to Moradabad in 1964. He passed away on 27-2-1980.

The Music Director of this film is Manna Dey (1-5-1919 to 24-10-2013). Manna Dey was essentially a singer, but initially he wanted to become a composer. So, by becoming assistant first to his uncle KC Dey and later to Khemchand Prakash, he managed to give music to 17 films, composing 129 songs in these films, in his career. None of his composed songs became a hit or very popular. In contrast, he sang in 839 Hindi films and sang 1370 songs ! This output clearly proves that he was a successful singer. The problem with many singers is that they want to become music directors or act in the films or do both or even all three (like Mukesh), but they do not possess that mindset. A composer is a planner and a singer is an implementer. You can either be this or that. In any case an implementer rarely has the talent of a planner. Singers like Mukesh, Talat, SD Batish, Khan Mastana and few others never became famous or popular or successful composers or actors. Singers like Talat realised this too late and spoiled his singing career too.

Today’s song is written by Bharat Vyas and sung by Manna Dey himself. Actually, the tune is quite melodious, but being a B grade film, even good songs do not get wider exposure to become popular. This is the 3rd song from this film,to be posted on the Blog. Enjoy this Bhajan…

Here is the sith song from “Maan”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Safdar aah Sitapuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

It is a pathos filled song, that strangley enough, has a soothing effect on the mind, as Raja had mentioned about the songs of Mukesh in his previous writeup. May be that is what such songs are meant to be.

This song is undoubtedly a classic song from a movie teeming with several classic songs of timeless nature.

Today (24 july 2017) is the First Monday of the Holy month of Shravan, as observed in the Western, some Eastern and Southern states of India. On this occasion, here is a very melodious Shiv bhajan from the film Shivratri-54. Chitragupta, the King of melody, has composed this bhajan by G.S. Nepali, and is sung sweetly by Asha Bhosle.

India is simply a wonderful and unique country in this world. With 22 languages, recognized by Indian Constitution ( and 122 major and 1599 smaller languages), 9 major and 125 minor religions and over 25 states having exclusive cultures, it was a wonder that Independent India survived after the British left in 1947.

India not only survived but is becoming and recognized as one of the developing countries, supplying its talents to the modern world almost for every industry. It was predicted that within 5 to 10 years after Independence, India will destroy itself with internal chaos and religious infighting. India not only proved the world wrong, but also showed the world how Unity can be achieved in Diversity !!!

This is because of Indian culture which crosses the religious boundaries. When there are killings and riots everyday in “One- Religion ” countries of the world, India is the only hope for the world with its diverse cultural diaspora. The high degree of adaptability and tolerance in the Indian Culture, leading to Peaceful Co-Existence of Religions and languages is the secret of India’s uniqueness.

Take the case of Calendar, as an example of adaptability. Throughout the world, there is uniform calendar in every country. Only in India, the Calendar is based on regional needs. More than 80% population follows a Calendar which has adapted itself to regional climatic routines and the Agricultural diversity of North and South India. The country has 2 ways of counting days. One- followed in the west,south and part of east, wherein the month ends on the No-Moon Day or Amavasya. The Hindi speaking belt of North, Northwest and Northeast follows the system wherein the month ends on the Full Moon Day or Pournima. There is a difference of only 15 days in these systems and due to 15 days’ counting system, all the Festivals fall on the same day all over the country. Hats off to whosoever devised this methodology which unites while maintaining the individuality of different states.

This year in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Goa, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Assam and Tripura ( Amavasyant states), Shravan month will be started from Monday, 24th of July 2017 which will be observed as the 1st Shravan Somvar Vrat. Shravan Somvar Vrat will be observed on every Monday i.e. 24th of July, 31st of July, 7th of August, 14th of August and 21st of August which will be the last day of Shravan Month as well.

Shravan month has already started from Monday, 10th of July, 2017 which will be observed as the 1st day of Shravan Month as well as 1st day of Shravan Somvar Vrat. Shravan Somvar Vrat will be observed on every Monday i.e. on 10th July, 17th July, 24th July, 31st July and 7th August which will be the last day of Shravan Month for Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh’, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and J&K. ( Purnimant states)

This entire period will be very auspicious for Lord Shiva Devotees and almost everyone of them will observe fast either for the entire month or at least on every Monday which falls during this period. The month of Shravan ( Saawan) is considered a very Holy month, especially for the Shiv Bhakts and every Monday is auspicious for Lord Shiva’s Pooja, Vrat or Fasting etc.

Shiv literally means auspiciousness, welfare. He is the third God of the Hindu Trinity, representing darkness. Because he is often portrayed as the angry god and the God of destruction, Lord Shiv is one of the most feared and worshipped Gods in Hinduism. He is said to play a complementary role to Brahma because he is protector of souls until they are ready for recreation by Lord Brahma. Shiv has eight forms: Rudra, Sharva, Bhava, Ugra, Bhima, Pashupati, Ishana and Mahadeva; which, according to the Shiv Purana, correspond to the earth, water, fire, wind, sky, a yogi called Kshetragya, the sun, and the moon respectively.

Shiv symbolically represents the tamasic quality. This happens to be one of the gunas in Hinduism, symbolizing inactivity. His body color, which is white, denotes his purity and association with the snowy mountains. His three eyes represent the sun, the moon and the earth, the three paths of liberation and the triple nature of creation. The third eye is actually the eye of wisdom or occult knowledge. Epithets note his distinctive hairstyle; he has matted hair which holds the flowing Ganges River and a crescent moon. Shiv is said to be the essence of the Vedas and the creator of the Word. He is also the creator of Dance. Shiv’s dance of anger is called the Roudra Tandava and his dance of joy, the Ananda Tandava. He dances both the dance of destruction and the dance of creation. The rhythms he dances to are that of a world continuously forming, dissolving and re-forming.

The legend of marriage of Shiv and Shakti is one the most important legends related to the festival of Mahashivaratri. The story tells us how Lord Shiv got married a second time to Shakti, his divine consort. According to legend of Shiv and Shakti, the day Lord Shiv got married to Parvati is celebrated as Shivaratri – the Night of Lord Shiva.

Legend goes that once Lord Shiv and his wife Sati or Shakti were returning from sage Agastya? ashram after listening to Ram Katha or story of Ram. On their way through a forest, Shiv saw Lord Rama searching for his wife Sita who had been kidnapped by Ravana, the King of Lanka. Lord Shiv bowed his head in reverence to Lord Rama. Sati was surprised by Lord Shiv’s behavior and inquired why he was paying obeisance to a mere mortal. Shiv informed Sati that Rama was an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Sati, however, was not satisfied with the reply and Lord asked her to go and verify the truth for herself.

Using her power to change forms, Sati took the form of Sita appeared before Rama. Lord Rama immediately recognized the true identity of the Goddess and asked, “Devi, why are you alone, where’s Shiv?” At this, Sati realized the truth about Lord Ram. But, Sita was like a mother to Lord Shiv and since Sati took the form of Sita her status had changed. From that time, Shiv detached himself from her as a wife. Sati was sad with the change of attitude of Lord Shiv but she stayed on at Mount Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiv.

Later, Sati’s father Daksha organised a yagna, but did not invite Sati or Shiv as he had an altercation with Shiv in the court of Brahma. But, Sati who wanted to attend the Yagna, went even though Lord Shiv did not appreciate the idea. To her great anguish, Daksha ignored her presence and did not even offer Prasad for Shiv. Sati felt humiliated and was struck with profound grief. She jumped into the yagna fire and immolated herself.

Lord Shiv became extremely furious when he heard the news of Sati’s immolation. Carrying the body of Sati, Shiv began to perform Rudra Tandava or the dance of destruction and wiped out the kingdom of Daksha. Everybody was terrified as Shiv’s Tandava had the power to destroy the entire universe. In order to calm Lord Shiv, Vishnu severed Sati’s body into 12 pieces and threw them on earth. It is said that wherever the pieces of Shakti’s body fell, there emerged a Shakti Peetha, including the Kamaroopa Kamakhya in Assam and the Vindhyavasini in UP.
Lord Shiv was now alone undertook rigorous penance and retired to the Himalayas. Sati took a re-birth as Parvati in the family of God Himalaya. She performed penance to break Shiv’s meditation and win his attention. It is said that Parvati, who found it hard to break Shiv’s meditation sought help of Kamadeva – the God of Love and Passion. Kaamadeva asked Parvati to dance in front of Shiv. When Parvati danced, Kaamadeva shot his arrow of passion at Shiva breaking his penance. Shiv became extremely infuriated and opening his third eye that reduced Kaamadeva to ashes. It was only after Kamadeva’s wife Rati’s pleading that Lord Shiv agreed to revive Kaamadeva.

Later, Parvati undertook severe penance to win over Shiv. Through her devotion and persuasion by sages devas, Parvati, also known as Uma, was finally able to lure Shiv into marriage and away from asceticism. Their marriage was solemnized a day before Amavasya in the month of Phalgun. This day of union of God Shiv and Parvati is celebrated as Mahashivratri every year.

I have been fasting on every Monday during Shravan and Mahashivratri since I was a child. Our family was a staunch Shiv Bhakt and we had our own big Shiv Temple in the compound of our Bungalow in Hyderabad. My father had spent some time in Banaras studying Vedas. I too was there for 2 years when I was a small kid. Anyway, all this had immense impact on me and I follow whatever is possible in the month of Shravan.
This time there are 5 Mondays in Shravan. We will try to discuss one Shiv Bhajan on every Monday from 24th July onwards.

Let us enjoy today’s Bhajan which is very sweet indeed. This song is the 2300th song of Asha Bhonsle as a playback singer in the blog.
