“Mehfil”(1957) was produced by M Masood and directed by A Karim for R F Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Rehana, Daljit, Renu Makad, Altaf, Jankidas, Nayantara, Majnu, Anant Prabhu, P Khandare, Shyam, Sheikh etc in it.

This obscure movie had six equally obscure songs in it.

One song has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from “Mehfil”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Khumar Barabankwi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nashaad.

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

It is a delightful song to listen to. A forgotten gem of a song indeed.

Chorus

Lyrics

Pyaara pyaara mukhda

Here is the ninth and final song from “Shaarda”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is picturised as a drunkard song on Raj Kapoor. Those who have seen Mukesh sing a drunkard song in “Jaagte Raho” (1959),could well expect Mukesh to sing this song, but this song is sung by Manna Dey ! Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ranmchandra.

The song situation in this song is rather more sombre than what was the case in “Jaagte Raho” (1959), as far as I can tell. IT is a rather lesser known drunkard song, but it can for that reason, may be regarded as a forgotten gem.

With this song, “Shaarda”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya (Shaarda)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya arrey ae khoob kiya

wo ghadiyaan khawaab ki ghadiyaan thhin een een
mai jin ghadiyo mein jaaga tha
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
paanvon ko jo mere tod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

jab mujhse zamaana door hua aa aa aa aa
jab mujhse zamaana door hua
botal ne kaha
bataaun kya kaha
nahin bataata
achcha bataata hoon
har dard ke mare ko ek din
to padti hai zaroorat to meri
padti hai zaroorat to meri
toote huye dil ko jod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

Like most C Ramchandra duets, this song is picturised as a romantic comic side plot song. The song is picturised on Agha and a lady whom I am unable to identify. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 16
———————————————————————

Discussion of Railway related matters-1
——————————————————————–

There are songs that bring back memories. Then there are songs that trigger emotions. The song under discussion is one such song. This song causes so many different kinds of emotions that one hopes that these emotions would occur in slow motion so that one could understand them. Unfortunately such ultra slow motion technology has not yet been invented and so one needs to deal with them in the usual old fashioned way- viz. by taking a breather, collecting oneself and then trying to understand and analyse the things that run through one’s mind when one listens to this song.

So many different kinds of emotional stuff have been packaged in the three stanzas of this song that one is amazed at the ability of the lyricist to express such complex feelings in so few words.

This song was created in 1957, more that sixty years ago. The country was devoid of any development after systematic loot of her resources by the foreign rulers. People were moving to various places all over India in search of new abodes (for people uprooted as a result of partition) as well as employment (lots of new establishments were coming up, many in remote locations). Train was the only option to reach to far off places.

Going away from one’s native place often meant leaving one’s near and dear one’s behind. In other words, hopes and aspirations of a better future were tempered by the feelings of separation and missing the beloved. Those who are left behind by the train traveller would have no way of knowing the whereabout of the train traveller and vice versa.

hey kaisa ghazab ye dhaaye more raama
sajni se saajan chhudaaye liye jaaye
hoy dhuyen ki gaadi udaaye liye jaaye

bairan gaadi udti jaaye
man ko chain na aaye
saajan ke man ko chain na aaye
hai apne piyaa se door sajaniyaa
chham chham neer bahaaye
sajaniya chham chham neer bahaaye
arre ho o o o
nainan ka kajra
haathan ka gazraa
sab kuchh ye bairan churaaye liye jaaye
ho
sab kuchh ye bairan churaaye liye jaaye

A train contained hundreds of passengers. Each one of them was going somewhere and each one of them had some urgent business to attend to. Just imagine, hundreds of people, all strangers travelling together for different destinations in the same train. Staying together for a few hours and sometimes longer, people from different backgrounds would get introduced to each other and they would strike friendship. They would soon start discussing issues of common interest with each other.

Trains, by carrying people to far off places from their original places of residence, would not just relocate them geographically, it would also help in the development of the nation by bringing in skilled personnel to less developed places. These people, migrants to new places far off from their original places would need to undergo enormous changes in their earlier habits and attitudes in order to get used to their new environments. It would involve, among other things, learning an entirely new language, which, after initial struggle, would be achieved by people with aplomb. That is how erstwhile small towns in India have grown to become larger and more prosperous cities, by attracting skilled people from various other places.

Interaction with people coming from different backgrounds and geographical locations enabled cross pollination of ideas, viz food habits, dressing habits, attitudes etc. When I went to Madras in 1989, I was pleasantly surprised to find Lassi(an out and out Punjabi drink) being sold in Madras Railway station by a native shop owner and doing a roaring business among the local customers in that hot weather.

People travelled in trains not just for their careers. People travelled on it to meet their relatives located in far off areas. Children boarding a train with their parents to meet their grandparents would be a great occasion for the children as well as the grandparents. Also think of those who received telegrams (telegrams were dreaded, as they often meant some bad news like someone passing away) and as a result had to urgently rush back to their native places, without any time for prepatations including booking their tickets, which was a tough proposition in pre internet days.

Like most people in India, I too have been exposed to Indian Railways from childhood. I in fact was a born Railwayman because my father was a Railway employee. 🙂 So I saw Railway right from the time I was a child.

I stayed in Railway colony of Ranchi, not far from Ranchi Railway station. I studied in two schools and later one college in Ranchi. All of them were located on the other side of the Railway line. So it was mandatory to cross the railway line while commuting between home and school/ college. Even otherwise I would often go to the Railway station and observe how trains operated. Ranchi had broadguage lines going towards Howrah as well as Patna, and there were only two express trains daily- one for Howrah and one for Patna. Present day Ranchi inhabitants may be amused by this account but that is how it was during 1960s and 1970s.

Ranchi also had a narrow guage line upto Lohardaga. Passenger trains would ply between Ranchi-Lohardaga, but the main traffic in this narrow guage line was goods traffic. Bauxite (ore of Aluminium) would be brought by narrow guage goods train. This narrow gauge train would be taken to an elevated line. Under that line, there would be Broad guage line and empty broadguage wagons would be kept just under the narrow guage wagons. valves of NG wagons (called hopper wagons) would open and their Bauxite ore content would fall down from their bottom discharge opening into the open broad guage wagons. It all looked very elegant. I as a child would stop there and watch how the bauxite ore got transferred from NG wagons into BG wagons within minutes. After that, the BG goods wagons would be taken to the Hindalco Aluminium factories for further processing.

Those were the days of steam locomotives. Ranchi Railway station had a steam loco shed. Steam locomotive pistons used to have piston rings outside them. These piston rings were replaced in the steam shed during their repair and old piston rings were discarded. These discarded piston rings, when welded at the gap made excellent hoop that kids so loved to drive.

Kids whose fathers were in loco department (viz locomotive drivers) would get their fathers to get such hoops for them. I was not so privileged as my father was in Engineering department, so I only had hoops made of rods bent into a circle. I would request my privileged friends to let me drive their piston ring hoop. After driving my hoop, driving that piston ring hoop seemed like one was driving a Ferrari or Rolls Royce. 🙂

Later, when I myself joined Railways, I found myself undergoing training, among other things, in steam locomotives at Jamalpur. What enormous sized parts a steam locomotive contained ! People who maintained steam locomotives and people who drove them needed to be extremely strong and rough and tough. It was not for people who were weak in body and mind.

One needed to pass in practicals as well as Interview. Interviews were conducted by the head of the Workshop (now called Chief Workshop Manager, then called Additional Chief Mechanical Engineer). A book “steam loco guide” by H C Ratta was a much sought after book for passing the interview. It appears that only one edition of this book was published in 1958 despite its enormous popularity. Only a few copies of the book were available and those who had them would guard their copies with their lives and would allow them to be shared to others only on hourly basis. 🙂

Very few people would be able to give satisfactory replies in the interview. Thankfully, the additional Chief Mechanical Engineer, who himself might have been in the shoes of the interviewees some two to three decades ago would take a sympathetic view towards them. 🙂

When I joined Railway service after managing to scrape through various examinations and interviews etc, I was hoping that I would not have to deal with steam locomotives much. I was initially posted in a MG Diesel locomotive shed so I felt safe. But my next posting was in a MG steam loco shed in a place called Purna in Maharashtra and that too as the incharge. 🙂 I somehow managed, all the while hoping that the steam locomotives would soon get phased out and thankfully that is what happened.

Sometime later, I was posted in Hubli, and guess what ! That place too had a MG steam loco shed ! Thankfully, the entire division, which was MG when I joined, became BG within four months of my joining there and so that steam loco shed got phased out too.

A few years later, I was transferred to N F Railways and posted at Lumding. A few months later,a new General Manager joined who was a steam locomotive romantic (even though ignorant about technical matters of steam locomotives), ordered that one of the several condemned MG steam locomotives lying at Badarpur (near Bangladesh Border) must be revived. As incharge of mechanical engineering activities, this task was entrusted on me. Despite lacking infrastructure for steam locomotives, one steam locomotive was revived and it was used to haul a few coaches in MG section between Lower Haflong and Maibong in may 2001, with BBC TV crew on board. BBC shot the steam train running and later telecast it on their world service TV. Taking inspiration from this, other zones too then revived a few steam locomotives lying in their territories and ran them, mainly for the benefit of camera opportunity.

Thankfully, that was my last tryst with Steam locomotives. Subsequently I had to deal only with Diesel locomotives. Diesel locomotives are maintained in Diesel loco sheds. The incharge of Diesel loco shed is called Senior Divisional Mechanical Engineer (Diesel), or Sr DME (D) in short. I have the unique distinction of being Sr DME (D) in diesel sheds of all the three guages, viz Broad guage, Meter Guage and Narrow Guage. My guess is that I am the only such officer in the entire 165 year old history of Indian Railways. 🙂 The fact that I have been transferred a lot all over India helped me achieve this feat. 🙂

I have worked in all wings of mechanical department that a zonal Railway can have. I have worked in Steam and Diesel (as mentioned above), power (which meant being incharge of Diesel locomotive drivers), Zonal HQ and also Railway Workshop.

I had joined Jabalpur one week before it became the headquarters of newly formed West Central Railway on 1 april 2003. So I was one of the founders of WCRly. It was while I was at Jabalpur that this blog was started on 19 july 2008.

As for train travels, I have obviously travelled a lot on Indian Railways. There are a few travels that stand out in memory. One was a train travel from Nagpur to Secunderabad in june 1998. I, my wife and our three months old daughter were travelling. We had got just one berth in AC2 and that too upper berth. My wife and daughter occupied the upper berth. It was extremely cold at the upper berth and the daughter, who was travelling by train for the first time was naturally quite uncomfortable and she cried a lot. My wife got mad at me for my inability to arrange for a lower berth. I looked around and found that a lower berth would get vacant after several hours, and the person (a collegue of mine) who was allotted that berth on vacation agreed to exchange that lower berth with our upper berth when he got that berth. Meanwhile my wife had managed to calm the daughter and had managed to make her fall asleep. Today, 20 years later, whenever I think of that train journey, I still shudder how our three months daughter , on her first train journey had had a harrowing time. And I still feel extremely grateful to my colleage, called Piyush Mathur (now posted in Jabalpur) who agreed to offer his side lower berth in exchange of inside upper berth.

Then there was another train travel between Jamalpur to Jabalpur that I undertook in january 2010. I had got a lower berth through EQ (emergency quota). As soon as I occupied by berth, all the passengers with upper berths began eyeing my lower berth and tried to exchange their upper berth with my lower berth. A mother and her grown up daughter had got the upper berth, the berth above me. The man on the opposite lower berth had his alibi ready. He had every physical ailments known to mankind so no one dare ask him to exchange his lower berth.

The two ladies tried all the tricks in the book and outside the book and I finally relented and exchanged my lower berth with their upper berth. As soon as I occupied the upper berth, the two ladies as well as the gentleman on the opposite lower berth made me a persona non grata and began to treat me as an unwanted intruder. “keep your purse in my custody, I will take care of them”, the gentleman would tell the ladies, indicating that the fellow on the upper berth was not to be trusted. Needless to say that I was not allowed to sit in the lower berth which was actually mine. I kept fuming throughout the journey. By the time the train arrived in WCR and the TTE of WCR joined the train, I told him my story and he fully empathised with me. “In future, never exchange your liower berth with anyone, whether it is a lady or a child or a saint”- he advised. “Yes, I will never do that again.” -I vowed. From that time onwards, I never exchange my lower berth with any passenger. and in case they look like people who do not deserve to be helped then I become uncharacteristically aggressive as well and tell them that I have suffered in the past for my generosity which was regarded as my foolishness and I will not allow myself to be taken for a ride again. The only exception to this rule is of course when I find a lady with a young child needing a lower berth, which was the case with me 20 years ago.

When I look back to my association with Railways, I have lots and lots of tales to tell. Some of our regulars are quite interested in matters related to Railways and I, during my interactions with them had said that I would discuss some railway related matters from an insider’s point of view in the blog. This article could be treated as the first article in that series. 🙂

More than the first article in my series of Railway related discussion, this article is about ten years of this blog. I have mentioned it many a times that the journey of this blog can be likened to a train journey and so a train related song is quite a suitable song for an occasion like this.

I had discovered this song may years ago and I was floored by this song. I had decided to use this song on some very special occasion. Lots of special occasions have arrived in the blog but somehow I felt the need to still hang on to this song. I think that this song is just the perfect song for the occasion.

So here is this song from “Naya Zamaana”(1957). This movie was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Link Films, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Veena, Kammo, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Gope, Shukla, Poonam Kapoor, Shakuntala, Brahmdatt, Daizy Irani, Baby Naaz, Al Nasir etc in it. Pradeep Kumar and Al Nasir were guest artists in this movie.

The movie had ten songs in it. One song was covered in the blog in the past.

This song, the second from the movie, is sung by Rafi and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kanu Ghosh.

Video of the first song covered from the movie was available. But only the audio of this rail song seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The blog has completed ten years of its existence. It appears as if this blog was started just a few months ago. I can barely believe that ten years have passed. But indeed that is the case. My daughter was just ten years old and in school at that time. Now she is an young adult and she is studying in a medical college. The youngest contributor of this blog eight years ago is now in show business. 🙂 We have people from various walks in like- Banking, Rocket science, film industry, government sector, private sector etc etc as our regular contributors and visitors. Just like people from all walks of lives used Railways to travel and enrich the nation, people of various walks have used the online media available to us to enrich the blog. When one looks at the variety that has been served in the form of guest articles in the run up to this event, one can only be amazed at the power of online collaboration. This blog is an example of what can be achieved when about a score of like minded individuals decide to collaborate on a topic of their choice. We never collaborated with the aim that we had to last for a certain period of time say ten years. We collaborated because we enjoyed what we were doing. When one enjoys doing something and works with a missionary zeal, one can keep doing it for long periods without feeling fatigued or disillusioned. The musical bandwagon had hardly lost any steam. In fact, I feel that we can pick up speed again. We still have lots and lots more of great music still left to be covered. So let us take a fresh guard again and let us star afresh once more. Here is hoping that this bandwagon will keep rolling on and on for the foreseeable future.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Without the support of encouragement, this labour of love could not have seen this day. The fact that we have seen this day shows how much goodwill the blog has received from music lovers. I request more on the same. Let us fasten our seat belts and move on. We still have a long way to go.

“Jalti Nishaani” (1957) was directed by Harish for Emsheth production, Bombay. The movie had Kamal Kapoor, Geeta Bali, Kuldeep Kaur, Sundar, Ulhaas, Chaman Puri etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

I am unable to make out the lyrics of the chorus which is either gibberish or words in some other language. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what these worlds could be.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘थ’ – थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी राजा बीते ना जवानी ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

दिल तू भी गा, प्यार में मुस्कुरा ॰ ॰ ॰

Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

– – – –

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Thodi Si Zindgani Raja Beete Na Jawaani  (Lakshmi Pooja) (1957) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt
Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani
raja beete na jawaani
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

teri thodi si zindgaani
pal pal beeti jaaye jawaani
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja
o raja
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
baat baat mein jeevan beete..ey..ey..ey
baat baat mein jeevan beete
kyon na tu sharmaat re
kyon na tu sharmaat re
oo oo hoye
aai hai rut mastaani
rim jhim barse roop ka paani
dekho saawan ke badra chhaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

nain baan hain
palken dori
nain baan hain palken dori
chitwan chhode baan re
chitwan chhode baan re
roop jawaani behta paani..ee..ee
roop jawaani behta paani
kyon karta abhiman re
kyon karta abhiman re
teri preet badi deewaani
preet laga prabhu se agyaani
jahaan dhokha na koi khaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Modern Theatre, Bombay. The movie had Ajit, Nalini Jaywant, I S Johar, Kamaljeet, Uday Laxmi, Shanti, Harbans Lal, Saroja, Anil Dutta etc in it.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) had eleven songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

The song picturisation shows Nalini Jaiwant remonstating with the Almighty- with Lord Krishna to be precise. The picturisation also shows some men listening to the bhajan from outside though they seem to possess far less devotion towards the Almighty than Nalini Jaiwant. 😉


Song-Har baat hai bigdi huyi bhagwaan bana do(Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

har baat hai bigdi hui
bhagwaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasaan bana do
aasaan bana do
har baat hai bigdi hui bhagwaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasaan bana do
aasaan bana do

main kya karoon
main kya karoon taqdeer mere saath nahin hai
par tumse na ho aisi koi baat nahin hai
main kya karoon
taqdeer mere saath nahin hai
par tumse na ho aisi koi baat nahin hai
roothhi hui kismat ko meharbaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasan bana do
aasaan bana do
har baat hai bigdi hui bhagwaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasaan bana do
aasan bana do

bhagwaan ho
bhagwaan ho sansaar mein sunte ho sabhi ki
do chaar ghadi mujhko bhi mil jaaye khushi ki
bhagwaan ho
sansaar mein sunte ho sabhi ki
do chaar ghadi mujhko bhi mil jaaye khushi ki
kuchh mere liye jeene ka saamaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasaan bana do
aasaan bana do
har baat hai bigdi hui bhagwaan bana do
vinti hai ye
mushqil meri aasaan bana do
aasaan bana do

Blog Day : 3610 Post No. : 14400

When you are young, you take many of your gifts for granted. Only when you lose those gifts that you start mising them. For instance, I took my eyesight for granted for nearly fifth years. I had perfect 6/6 vision for much of my life, but now I cannot read without glasses.

To take another telling example, I was an indefatiguable runner in my younger days. I could run around for hours without running out of breath. But today I cannot even run ten metres, forget running 1500 metres in around five minutes that I was capable of during my younger days.

Forget comparing my present self with my past younger self of 35 years ago. When I compare the blog strike rate today with the blog strike rate of six years ago, I find a similar loss of agility. 🙂 During 2011 and 2012, we were clocking 100 songs every 16 days, and sometimes even faster. These days, we have become like a potbellied elderly person who can barely move. Our blog centuries these days are taking more than 30 days each. The previous century took exactly one month viz 31 days.

If one thought that we could not get any slower, then you need not look any further. This post is post number 14400 for the blog and it has taken 43 days ! I sincely hope that it is the last of such snail paced centuries and we would pick up some decent pace from now onwards.

This century post has taken almost an eternity to arrive and it will appear in the dying moments of the day (night), which means readers of the blog may not get much time to read it before the next post appears first thing in the morning.

This century post, like most of our century posts combines several landmarks, and some of these landmarks are “artificial” but real. Did I just use an oxymoron like say happily married ? 🙂

Let me count the special occasions that this song combines. This song is from a 1957 movie called “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This movie was directed by Jaswant jhaweri for Dinesh Films Bombay. This “historical” movie had Nirupa Roy, Jairaj, Ram singh, Al Nasir, Ramesh sinha, Sundar, Murad, Rajkumar, Shree Bhagwan, Ramlal, Sapru, Shyam Lal, Pandey, R S dubey, Devchand, Yashodhara Katju, Ratnamala, Heera, Helen, Veena. Guest artist-Minu Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had 12 songs in it and the song under discussion is the first song from the movie. In other words, “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957) makes its debut in the blog. It is no ordinary debut though. As many as 113 movies were released in 1957. 99 of these movies were represented in the blog so far. So this movie is the 100th movie of 1957 to find representation in the blog !

There is another even more impressive number coming up ! The decade of 1950s (from 1951 upto 1960) saw 1111 movies getting released. 999 of these movies have been covered in the blog so far. So, ladies and gentlemen, this movie happens to be the 1000th movie of 1950s to get showcased in the blog ! We now have just 111 more movies of 1950s left to be covered in the blog. Of course songs of many of these movies may not be available. But that is for the future.

For now, let us enjoy this lovely duet from “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and chorus. It is a dance song performed in a raj darbaar. I am unable to identify the actors performing the dance. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sanmukh Babu.

With this song, we now reach the landmark of 14400th song in the blog. We are just five weeks short of completing ten years of the blog which would be a REAL achievement for the blog. There would be nothing “artificial” in that massive landmark that will arrive soon.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement. I hope that the blog will pick up some real steam in the coming days and we will not only regain our glory days but hopefully exceed them as well.

“Paak Daaman”(1957) was directed by S M Yusuf for Wadia Brothers, Bombay. This Muslim social movie had Chitra, Sudesh Kumar, Kumar, Krishna Kumari, Renu Makad, Adeeb, Moti Sagar, Mirza Musharraf, Sheikh, Baalam, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Praveen Paul, Indu, Kesarbai, Meena, Shree Bhagwan, H Prakash, Bande Hasan Qawwaal, Sardar Mansoor, Merunnissa, Mumtaz, Maqbool, M K Hasan, Mitthu Miyaan, Korega, Roopmala, Julien, Onkar, Jago etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Paak Daaman”(1957) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that this song is a qawwali between the two genders which tends to be an entertaining musical nok-jhonk between the two genders.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

parda uthaao saamne aao

geet na gaao pyaar ke

jaao ji jaao

geet na gaao pyaar ke

parda uthhaao saamne aao

ishq bhikhaari husn hai daata
maangne waale jaayen kahaan
ishq bhikhaari husn hai daata
maangne waale jaayen kahaan
ho maangne waale jaayen kahaan

aur kisi ke dar par maango
mil na sakegi bheekh yahaan

aur kisi ke dar par maango
mil na sakengi bheekh yahaan

raahe khuda ik jalwa dikha do
allah hi dega maula hi dega
raahe khuda ik jalwa dikha do
bhookhe hain deedaar ke
bhookhe hain deedaar ke
parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke

jaao ji jaao

geet na gaao pyaar ke

ho o o o o
door hato ji rasta naapo
yoon na hamen badnaam karo

koi to aakhir kaam karo

ham na sunenge koi fasaana
honge na poore khwaab tumhaare

honge na poore khwaab tumhaare
ham na sunenge koi fasaana

aankh churaana thheek nahin
ho aankh churaana thheek nahin
rahne do is raag ko dil mein
sabko sunaana thheek nahin
sabko sunaana thheek nahin

jo bhi kahoge maan hi lenge
jaane wafa o jaane tamanna
jo bhi kahoge maan hi lenge
bande hain sarkaar ke
bande hain sarkaar ke

parda uthhaao
saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke
parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke
