Today’s song is from the film Bhagwan Parshuram-1970. It was a Mythological film made by Mewad films, Bombay. Directed by Babubhai Mistry – The king of trick scenes and a highly respected cinematographer since the 30’s decade. The 6 songs of the film were written by Madan Bharati and the music was by Jaikumar Parte, for whom this was a Debut film as a Music Director. The cast included Abhi Bhattacharya, Jayashree Gadkar, Niranjan Sharma, Sulochana, Saproo, Jeevan, Trilok Kapoor and many others.

I immensely like Mythological and religious films for many reasons. First of all, I have been seeing such films since my childhood. I was the officially nominated ‘Chaperone’ in my family to accompany the group of elders going to see these Dharmik films. I liked the film’s costumes, big palaces, trick scenes and the final ‘triumph of the good over the evil’ stories.

When the Talkie films’ era came to India, the early filmmakers tended to make films on folk tales and Mythological stories in the first decade, i.e. 1931 to 1940. In the second decade of 1940 to 1950 many religious films were made-some of them like Ram Rajya-1943 being All India blockbuster- and the third decade from 1951 to 1960 achieved the peak for Mythological films made, worth calling it ‘ The Golden period of Religious films’. As many as 124 such films were made in this decade. From 1961 to 1970 1nd 1971 to 1980 were ok, but 1980 onwards there was a decline in such films and Mythological films became scarce except some dubbed films from the South, where such films are made even today regularly. The Television became a competition to this as many Dharmik serials were shown on TV.

The reason is not that such films do not bring profit, but where was the audience to see them ? The interest, respect and knowledge of our heritage, the glorious past and our culture has diminished to a depth. Due to lack of reading habits, children have no knowledge of our religion or interest in Mythological stories. Today if you ask the following simple questions to Boys and Girls of the age group of 15 to 25 years, you will be shocked with their guess work , ignorance or blank faces….
1.Can you name the 4 Yugas ?
2. Which are the 4 Vedas ?
3. Can you name the 10 Avatars of Vishnu ?
4. Who were the wives of Laxman, Bharat and Shatrughna ?
5. For how many years the Pandava went to Vanvas and why ?

The reason for this apathy is not just modern life or modern gadgets. The causes are deep, like lack of reading habit, Text Books not having religious stories, no ” Sanskars” from parents, treating such knowledge as ‘ backward ‘ etc etc.

Anyway, all this apart, the film Bhagwan Parshuram-1970 was based on Vishnu’s avatar of Parshuram. It was a very good Dharmik picture. As we know, there were 10 Avatars Vishnu had taken.Parshuram was also one of them.(Matsya, Kurma, Varah, Narsinh, Waman,Parshuram,Shri Ram, Shri Krishna, Buddha and Kalki- which is yet to take place.)

Parshuram is known in Puranas, as one who made the Prithvi-Nikhshatriya. That is, he killed all the kshatriyas on this Prithvi, 21 times . The reason was, the Kshatriyas had gone out of control. With their weapons and power, they looted and ruled very cruelly. To control their “atyachar”, Vishnu came down as Parshuram.

Parshuram was born to Jamdagni Rishi and his wife Renuka. They had Surabhi-daughter of Kamdhenu-a cow which gave what one wished. Rakhshas Sahasrabahu,who was granted a boon of strength of thousand arms(by God Dattatreya),had become very cruel. He wanted Surabhi, but when he could not get her, he abducted Renuka. Renuka escaped and returned, but Jamdagni gave her a curse of Leprosy. Narada advises her to go on pilgrimage. Meanwhile, Parshuram helps a damsel in distress and she happens to be Princess Gayatri, daughter of Sahastrabahu. When Sahasrabahu comes to know this, he kills own daughter. Parshuram kills him and makes Gayatri alive again.

The entire film is full of major Gods like Bramha ,Vishnu, Mahesh and Indra,in addition to many lesser gods. The credits have shown a loooong list of 18 puranas etc to claim authenticity of this story. It was very interesting to see the trick scenes and revise our knowledge about Puran kathas.

In this film Jeevan had done his pet role of Narad, perhaps for the last time. He did this role many times in his career. The number of his Narad roles varies from 49 to 84 films in different sources.

This was the first film of Music Director Jay Kumar Parte in Hindi. He is yet another case of a talented person without Luck. I my last post I had written about Shridhar Parsekar, today we will have details about Jay Kumar, MD. His name was Jai Kumar Parte. He was also known as Bal Parte. He was born on 14-10-1932 at Kolhapur. His father was a doctor. His mother and father played Sitar which made the family atmosphere musical. He learnt Harmonium from Gopalrao Gokakkar. Once when Prithviraj Kapur came to Kolhapur, he got introduced to his father and they became thick friends.

Prithviraj took his father’s family to Bombay and he became the official medical officer of Prithvi theatres. Jai worked in the dance troupe of dancer Hema Kasargod and travelled all over India. When Shankar- Jaikishen became independent composers, their vacancy in Prithvi Theatres was filled up by Jai Kumar as a Harmonium player. Dattaram was his friend and Jai assisted him in almost all of his films. For many years he worked as assistant to kalyanji-Anand ji. Though Laxmikant-pyarelal were their arrangers, K-A kept Jai kumar as their assistant. He prepared the background music of many films of K-A.

Lata Mangeshkar also stayed in the same building (Shankarshet mansion) where jai Kumar lived in Bombay. Due to her encouragement he learned western instruments from V.Balsaraand became an expert in Chords. Kalyanji called him ” The king of Chords “. jai Kumar worked as assistant to Usha Khanna and as an arranger with Sardar Malik, Avinash Vyas, Iqbal Qureshi, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Yeshawant Deo, Mahesh-Naresh and Shridhar Phadke. Playing Chords with Chromatic scales and in Whampine systems, he was an acclaimed expert.

He was keen on becoming a Music director. Finally, he gave music to Bhagwan Parshuram-1970 for the first time. Then came Putlibai-1972, Jaan Hajir hai-1975 and finally gawah-1979. He gave music to just 1 Marathi film-Mangalsutra-1968. Jaikumar Parte was more or less like an introvert in his temperament. He never asked anybody for work. He used to feel insulted frequently due to perhaps his complex as he was not a successful music Director.

He started sitting at home without canvassing for work and work never came to him. He went the usual way and finally breathed his last on 9-4-1981 at the age of just 48. His son Tushar works as a lead Guitarist and an arranger in Hindi films. (adapted from Marathi Sangeetkar Kosh and Rahe na Rahe hum, with thanks.)

In this film actor Niranjan Sharma played the role of Sahasrabahu. he was an actor, director, story writer, a dialogue writer and even a lyricist. He started his career with film pandav kaurav-1933 as a story writer and film Sach hai-1939 as a dialogue writer. His first film as an actor was Sawaal-1943-a film which he directed also. in all he acted in 129 films, most of which were mythologicals and B grade films. Before film Bhagwan Parshuram was released he died due to heart attack. He is credited in this film as (Late) Niranjan Sharma. 2 more films were released after his death, in which he played roles.

His daughter Gayatri’s role was played by Jayashree Gadkar- a well known and famous Marathi actress. Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s. Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heroines in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema. Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye Aika (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan). Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes)

Today’s song is sung by Mukesh. This is the second song from this film to feature here. This second song from the movie appears in the blog 11 years (3948 days)after the first song appeared in the blog on 28 november 2011.

“Poornima”(1965) was produced by Mahipat Ray Shah and directed by Narinder Suri for Roop Kala pictures, Bombay. The movie had Meena Kumari, Dharmendra, Anita Guha, Mahmood, Siddhu, Nazir Hussain, Durga Khote, Parveeen chaudhary, Sadhana Khote, Rajaa Nene, Kanu Roy, Kanchanmala, Kesari, Polson, Honey Irani, Babloo, P.D.Lal ,Polson, Snehmala, Raju, Baby Chand, Rajendra Singh, Johny Whisky, Shivjibhai etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Poornima”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on Meena Kumari, Anita Guha and others. Towards the end of the picturisation, a stanza from another song of the movie ( gori nain tumhaare kya kehne sung by Mukesh is artficially inserted.

It is one case where the video version, even though longer than the audio version is not authentic. It is the audio version, a Suman Kalyanpur solo song, which is the authentic version of the song. The video version may give the impression that it is a duet, but it is not.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Sautela Bhai”(1962) was directed by Mahesh Kaul for Alok Bharti, Bombay. The movie had Pranati, Guru Dutt, Rajkumar, Bipin Gupta, Kanhaiyalal, SN Bannerjee, Asit Sen, Ratna aka Ratna Bhushan, Bela Bose, Radheyshyam, Sarosh Irani, Honey Irani, Jeevankala, Rani, Surendra, Madan Kumar, Dev Kishen, Laxman Singh, Suresh, Anwari, Samar Chatterjee, Bagla, Mohan Jerry, Shahji, Narmada Shanker, Kesri, Ranibala, Khatana, Dulari, Baby Farida etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the seven songs already covered in the blog.:-

Blog post number song Date of post Singer (s)
1987 Jaa main tose naahin boloon 25 September 2009 Lata
3848 Paisaa hi maalik paisaa hi daataa 5 May 2011 Manna Dey, Anil Biswas

16071 Maiyya maiyya boley baal kanhaiyya 29 November 2020 Meena Kapoor, Pankaj Mitra
17113 O man rey main jag mein aaj paraaya 24 August 2022 Mahendra Kapoor

Here is the eighth and final song from “Sautela Bhai”(1962). This song is a duet song. HFGK is silent about the singers. Several youtubers who have uploaded this song describe the singers as Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

On listening to the song, it is clear that the male voice is Manna Dey. How experienced youtube uploaders cannot differentiate between Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey beats me. The two singers have little in common as far as their voices are concerned.

It is the female voice that creates doubts. Prakashchandra guesses that the singers are Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. I find that the seven songs that we already have from this movie had Manna Dey’s voice in three songs and Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in two songs. Voices of Meena Kapoor, Pankaj Mitra, Anil Biswas and Mahendra Kapoor were also used in the songs of this movie.

Seeing that Pranati (the heroine) is present in the picturisation and she lip synced in two other songs in the movie in Lata Mangeshkar voice, I guess that the female voice could well be Lata Mangeshkar’s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the female voice.

The song is picturised as a Krishn bhajan where the bhajan singers (Radheshyam, Laxmi Chhaya and Pranati) criticise a repentant Yashoda Mata (Dulaari) for abandoning Krishn. This song is a forgotten gem. It is written by Shailendra. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

with this song, all soongs of “Sautela Bhai”(1962) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Private Secretary”(1962) is one of the two eligible movies.

75 years. A passage of history that belongs to us. And we belong to it. Most of us have our conscious memories completely inside of this phase. There are those who have seen the phase prior to this. And may God Almighty give them, and all of us, good health and long years, to share and to love.

History is a but continuous flow of time and events and experiences. It is impossible to record them all. Each individual is a universe all its own. And then groups of people, tracts of geographies, ideas and movements, nations and natural phenomena – in fact an endless list of entities and experiences that have a history all of their own. Some of it is recorded, some resides in memories and lives through word of mouth. How exact and accurate it is, is anybody’s guess.

And outside of the history, life continues – regardless. Every era, every passage, every unit of time, every phase – each has specialties of its on connected with it. And for that passage, for that unit of time, that experience is the prime most. In the minds of those who are living through it, nothing else comes close in terms of the intensity of the experience. It is that in-the-moment (or in-that-passage) experience that is paramount. Nothing else before it compares with it. Of course it does not, it cannot. We have not experienced that past, which disqualifies us from the comparative experience judgment.

1947 – 15th August. A nation that we call our motherland – India, or any other name – started a new passage, a new chapter. The change that defined the novelty, the distinctiveness, the difference from the before-to-the-after was the event of a political change. The entity that we consider as our nation, was under the control of a foreign agency before this event. And then, on the day of that change – 15th August in the year 1947, the control passed into the hands of the native people. History has recorded and uniquely identified almost a century, or more, prior to this distinctive event, as a period of struggle to gain back this very political control that had been usurped quite deceivingly by the said foreign agency.

In a land as huge as this nation, a fairly large segment of population was impacted by this change, and the manner in which this change was put into effect. And then, there was another segment of the population, equally fairly large, or maybe even larger, for whom, nothing really changed as a matter of day to day living. The course of events made some transformation in the matters of political control and governance. Outside of that, it was life as usual, for most of them who were a witness to and were a part of this change.

Famously addressed as a significant tryst in the course of destiny, the natives of this land took control, and that was that. The rest was, as they say, business-as-usual.

That is a perspective of the historians. A dispassionate noting of the record of events, as pertaining to this entity that we call India.

And then, there is another perspective – the more passionate, the more emotional experience that comes from being connected, with a sense of belonging, a sense of deep attachment which is felt by individuals. Individuals who were part of what the historians call the period of struggle, individuals who were passive supporters of the struggle, and also people whose desires were aligned with the objectives of the struggle.

And when that event came to pass, on the definitive date of 15th August, 1947, there was also a whooping celebration, an expression of euphoria, and a sense of victory – having achieved the desired target, as a result of the efforts of a very large number of people.

The emotions that are tied to this event have been expressed by many who were involved, in their own unique ways. One of the manners of expression was the articulation in words – that sense of belonging, that sense of pride and ownership, that sense of honor one would associate with a land that we call as our own.

And when we look back further into the history, this expression, this articulation of the sense of pride and belonging, goes all the way back to the roots of our culture. When we look through the Vedas, the essential origin of all our knowledge and idioms, we come across this timeless expression stated therein – “जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी” – that the land where we are born, the pride of the sense of belonging to that “भूमि” – land, is beyond any experience – real or imagined. The so mentioned “स्वर्ग”, or the heavens in this adage, is an experience that one only talks about. Heaven – an imagined state of existence that is purportedly perfect, that is blemish-less, devoid of any defects and problems, a state of incomparable bliss that cannot be experienced in our material existence.

And so the adage goes on to propound that our land of birth, that we lovingly refer to as our motherland, is even greater and more fulfilling than the conceptual heaven. This is a prime thought, which creates a strong sense of affinity to our land – because nothing is better than it – not even the so called heaven.  “Saare Jahaan Se Achcha Hindostan Hamaara”.

Many a mortal men of letters have touched this emotion, and have gained immense strength from it. And this strength, this power of character, this intense experiential phenomena, has inspired and aroused a sentimental excitement in the minds. And the words then flowed from their minds, from their lips, and onto the paper. And verses and songs have been created, applauding the sense of extreme goodness and integrity of the emotional bond with the roots that tie oneself to the land of birth, giving a sense of a powerful identity. And that identity is what defines the existence for every individual – a sense of belonging, a sense of rooted security, a sense of a safe haven, where one is free to be oneself.

One such great man of letters that graced this land, during the passage of that which we identify as the period of struggle, is Allama Iqbal, one of the most significant writer and poet of our times. He put down these verses in the honor of this land – the land we refer to as Hindustan – “Sare Jahan se Achcha, Hindostan Hamaara”. The adage from the Vedas that is mentioned above – “जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी”, the thought and the concept so effortlessly and lovingly flows into the burden of this song.

This set of verses formed the song that is formally known as ‘Tarānah-e-Hindi’ – the Anthem of the People of Hindustan. The poem was first published in the weekly journal ‘Ittehad’ on 16 August 1904. It was publicly recited for the first time by Iqbal the following year at Government College, Lahore. Iqbal was a lecturer at the College at that time. He was invited by a student Har Dayal Mathur (later to become famous as Lala Har Dayal, one of the foremost freedom fighters and a leader of the Gadar Party), to preside over a function. Instead of delivering a speech, Iqbal sang “Saare Jahan Se Achcha”. The song embodied yearning and attachment to the land of Hindustan, and invoked a cultural memory that took the hearts of the young listeners at the function. In 1905, the 27-year-old Iqbal viewed the future society of the subcontinent as both a pluralistic and composite Hindu-Muslim culture.

After that rendition, it quickly became the sacred song of opposition to the British Raj. The song, an ode to Hindustan—the land comprising present-day Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, was later published in 1924 in the Urdu book ‘Bang-i-Dara’. The song has remained popular, and continues to be sung and performed at events of national significance, and even otherwise, as a song of patriotism for children.

The complete song consists of nine verses. Following is the complete text of this song.
[Acknowledgement – The full text of the song is taken from rekhta.org web site.]

saare jahāñ se achchhā hindostāñ hamārā
ham bulbuleñ haiñ is kī ye gulsitāñ hamārā

ġhurbat meñ hoñ agar ham rahtā hai dil vatan meñ
samjho vahīñ hameñ bhī dil ho jahāñ hamārā

parbat vo sab se ūñchā ham-sāya āsmāñ kā
vo santarī hamārā vo pāsbāñ hamārā

godī meñ kheltī haiñ is kī hazāroñ nadiyāñ
gulshan hai jin ke dam se rashk-e-jināñ hamārā

ai āb-rūd-e-gañgā vo din hai yaad tujh ko
utrā tire kināre jab kārvāñ hamārā

maz.hab nahīñ sikhātā aapas meñ bair rakhnā
hindī haiñ ham vatan hai hindostāñ hamārā

yūnān o misr o ruumā sab miT ga.e jahāñ se
ab tak magar hai baaqī nām-o-nishāñ hamārā

kuchh baat hai ki hastī miTtī nahīñ hamārī
sadiyoñ rahā hai dushman daur-e-zamāñ hamārā

‘iqbāl’ koī mahram apnā nahīñ jahāñ meñ
mālūm kyā kisī ko dard-e-nihāñ hamārā

 

Translation

Better than the entire world, is our Hindustan,
We are its nightingales, and it is our garden abode

If we are in an alien place, the heart remains in the homeland,
Consider us too to be right there where our heart would be

That tallest mountain, that neighbor of the sky,
It is our sentinel, it is our protector

In its lap frolic a thousand rivers,
Whose vitality makes our garden the envy of Paradise

O the flowing waters of the Ganga, do you remember the day
When our caravan first arrived on your banks

Religion does not teach us to bear animosity among ourselves
We are of Hind, and our homeland is Hindustan

In a world from where ancient Greece, Egypt, and Rome have all vanished
Therein still flourishes our name and identity

There is something blessed about us that our identity is never erased
Though in every period this world has been an adversary for centuries

Iqbal! We have no confidant in this world
What does anyone know of our hidden pain?

This song has also appeared in many Indian films. Two occasions of this song are already showcased on our blog, namely “Saare Jahaan Se Achcha Hindustan Hamaara” from the film ‘Bhai Behan’ (1950) and “Saare Jahaan Se Achcha Hindustan Hamaara” from the film ‘Ye Gulistan Hamaara’ (1972). Incidentally, the title of the latter film is also taken from this song – it is the second half of the second line in the first verse – “ham bulbuleñ haiñ is kī ye gulsitāñ hamārā”.

Today’s presentation is from the film ‘Hamaara Ghar’ from 1964. This is a children’s film made by KA Abbas. The film is produced under the banner of Naya Sansar, Bombay. The film features 6 songs, 5 of which are written by Ali Sardar Jafri. The sixth song, which is this song, is by Iqbal. Jag Phool Kaushik is the music director. Geet Kosh lists the name of singer as Vijaya Chaudhry and chorus. However, there are more voices in the song that are not identified.

This version of the song includes three verses from the original song.

75 years and counting. Maybe some of us will be here to witness the 100th year in 2047. Let that be a community resolution, that we shall celebrate together, the century of India’s independence.

As they say in our culture, word is eternal. And so this song will still be sung when we reach the century milestone. And that proclamation is contained within the verses of this song itself.

kuchh baat hai ki hastī miTtī nahīñ hamārī
sadiyoñ rahā hai dushman daur-e-zamāñ hamārā

Blog Day :

Today (15 August 2022) is the 76th Independence day for India.So India has completed 75 years of independence. I have seen 60 Independence days. It is the 15th Independence day for the blog. This constitutes a nice 5:4:1 ratio.

Only 15 years had passed since independence when I was born. The country was still ruled by its first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) and first President (Dr Rajendra Prasad). The country was still trying to find its feet. When I look back at the situation of India those days, India was in as bad shape as the most underdeveloped countries in Africa. The literacy rate was abysmal. Life expectancy was 32 years.

Here I present some important indices that India had in 1947. I have also provided figures for the same indices in 1962, 2008 and 2022. The change in values over the years have been quite remarkable.

Life expectancy in india in years
1947 1962 2008 2022
32 42 66 70

We can see that the life expectancy in India has become more than doubled from 32 years to 70 years.

Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
218 157 49 27

Infant mortality rate was quite alarming till a few decades ago. The figure of 27 deaths per 1000 live births is still unsatisfactory but it is a vast improvement from the figure of 1947.

Maternal mortality rate (per 100000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
2000 1000 212 103

The Maternal mortality rate had improved by nearly 20 times in 75 years.

Literacy rate in India in %
1947 1962 2008 2022
12 % 29 % 70 % 77%

India was among the most illiterate nations on earth. Today Indian literacy rate is quite high and that has enabled India to take rapid strides in economic activities that require skilled manpower, viz service sector and manufacturing sector.

Population of India in crores
1947 1962 2008 2022
34 cr 47 cr 121 cr 140 cr

Indian population had quadrupled in 75 years.

Human Development Index

One can notice that India, despite its problems, including wrong policy decisions and adverse geo political circumstances, has come up a long way in last 75 years. Now India seems poised to take its rightful place among the nations of the world. It is a matter of time (three decades in my estimate) before India will join the list of advanced nations of the world.

There are lots of things that can be mentioned here, but the above tables give us clear idea about the progress that India has made in various areas.

On this occasion, here is a song from an unreleased movie called ‘Aaj Watan Ne Hamen Pukaara’ (1970). The movie was made under the banner of Sangam Productions, Bombay. That is all the information that is known about this movie.

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohinder Kaur.

Lyrics of this rare song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 76th independence day.

नाग लोक की एक नारी ने
धरती को अपनाया
पर श्राप ने
पत्नी का लो
पति से संग छुड़ाया
जाने क्या क्या खेल छुपा है
विधि के अजब विधान में
गर्भवती ये सती चल पड़ी
आँधी और तूफान में

हाए विधाता दुखियारी के
तुम कैसे पालक हो
अपने पिता की
मौत का कारण
उसका ही बालक हो
उसका ही बालक हो
