Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 89
———————————————————————————–

This date 29 october 2020 is a different kind of blog ten year challenge. It was on this day ten years ago that I met Raja face to face in Nagpur where I was based at that time. All these days I was under the impression that the meeting had taken place recently, but no, time has sprinted away faster than Usain Bolt, and TEN years have elapsed after that memorable evening. .

For those who came in late, I was a member of a by now defunct cricket forum called Pakcricbuzz under the ID of squarecut. I used to discuss cricket of 1970s in that forum. One fine day, this new member called Raja joined and he started commenting on my posts exclaiming that he was in the same age group and he too had similar memories about cricket of 1970s. I initially thought that he was a Pakistani with surname of Raja (like Wasim Raja and Rameez Raja) but later I found that he was an Indian.

After a few days, I stumbled upon “introduction” section of that forum, where I found discussion about a new cricket forum by an Indian poster. I visited that forum called cricforum. That was in may 2005. It was quite an inactive forum at that time, but I felt comfortable there mainly because it was a forum of Indians. Two weeks later, I found that same person Raja also joining cricforum. Soon the forum began to buzz with great activity.

The forum had moderators and administrators based in Europe and USA and they needed an India based moderator. So I was made an moderator there and an announcement was made that “Atul Bhai is our new moderator.” Members of the forum congratulated me, and that included Raja too. So your name is Atul, he stated. My ID was squarecut and so it was this announcement that made Raja aware about my name.

This forum did not just discuss cricket, it discussed other topics as well, and people there had a unique kind of sense of humour which was described there as “muppetry”. Whenever India lost in cricket, which was quite often, members would roast Indian cricketers in posts that were scathing and at the same time quite funny. Then there was this person Ravi, the owner of the site, who would write hard hitting reviews of Hindi movies that were great fun to read. This person Ravi incidentally has written a guest post in this blog as well. This article gives us some idea about his sense of humour. Even I have covered him in the blog in one article on his pet-a wolf dog. I rate this article as one of the most satisfying articles written by me.

Some music lovers there began to discuss music under a subsection called Geetmala. There music loving members would write articles on a music theme. I wrote a few articles, on themes like Railway songs in Hindi movies. Others such as Raja also came up with his own theme.

It was during late 2007 and early 2008 that I was exposed to the concept of blogging. I opened a blog on blogspot platform where I started writing similar theme based articles. I wrote 50 long articles there which did not get the kind of traffic that I expected. Soon enough, I discovered wordpress platform, which I found far more easy for blogging. It was on this platform that I began to write my comments of Hindi film songs, taking up one song at a time. And soon enough, this became my main blog.

When I informed others about my blogs, some of them visited them and left notes of encouragement. Raja’s comments were especially prized ones for me, because he wrote long and elaborate comments that served as just the kind of encouragement that any budding blogger/ poster needs.

As mentioned earlier, Raja and I were members of cricforum. Raja actually met a few regulars of that forum, including Ravi, the owner of that forum. So Raja was already into “gangouts” of cricforum. Incidentally, this term “Gangout” is coined by Raja. So far this term has not found its way into Dictioneries and it is found only in this blog.

Raja was based in Holland and he would regularly visit India to meet his family members. By 2010, Raja too had become a moderator and subsequently an administrator in that forum. I too had become an adminisrator. During october 2010, Raja was planning to visit India, and another administrator called Asterix too was planning to visit India. This person Asterix was Nagpur based, and he saw a good opportunity for a get together at Nagpur. He invited a few members to come visit Nagpur. Raja was the one who agreed. So Raja boarded a train from Bangalore and arrived at Nagpur on 28 October 2010. He was recived at the Nagpur station by Asterix who took him to his home to stay with him. Raja, in those pre whatsapp days posted his status in cricforum- “Arrived Nagpur. Feeling happy. Looking forward to meet Atul.”

At Nagpur, I lived in Railway locality (called Mount Road)close to Old Vidarbha Cricket stadium. This stadium had hosted international matches till a few years ago, before the bigger stadium at Jamtha came up. I lived alone, while my wife and daughter lived across the Maharashra MP border 250 KM away. I had a very good internet connection (provided by Railways) and I also had inverter connection. So I was connected on internet round the clock even if it was raining outside and power was off. No wonder I was at my most productive as a blogger those days.

Raja, asterix and another person (Asterix’s relative) arrived at my home in the evening. I received a bear hug from Asterix. The two of us were so like minded in cricketing matters (including our “love” for Bangladeshi cricket. 🙂 ) in the forum.

After some cricket discussion, the two of them expressed their interest in my blogging process. So I took them to the room that I had earmarked for this purpose. This small room had a laptop on a computer table. When I look back at it now, I realise that I used to note down the lyrics directly from the computer. I did not use headphone or external speakers those days. Later I began to use headphones and that helped a lot. But using headphones was not yet started by me and I relied on listening to the tinny voice emanatng from the laptop. That laptop was a 2007 model, with windows XP in it.

The blog by that time had 3154 posts, a far cry from the current tally of over 16000 writeups. Many blog concepts, now taken for granted had not yet evolved. Even guest posts were in their infancy. Raja, the first guest poster in the blog had written his (and blog’s) first guest post on 26 june 2010 (blog post number 2565). Raja’s most recent guest post was the writeup for 3000th song of the blog- on 20 september 2010. It was his 31st guest post in the blog. 31 guest posts in less than three months- Raja was in a rich vein of writing form those days. 🙂

My collection of video CDs, audio CDs etc were strewn all over the place which I showed them as my musical collection. I can never arrange them systematically, no matter how half heartedly I try. 🙂 I also tried to bluff telling them that what was visible was only a part of my collection. 🙂

I had one thing with me that was quite a prized possession though. It was a diary of 1974, that I got hold of in 1975. In that diary I noted down lyrics of songs written from radio. I needed to listen to a song a few times before I could get the full lyrics right. It had about 200 plus song lyrics. That diary was also the place where I would note down scores of test matches played those days. I showed them the score card of the Port of Spain test where India scored 406/4 in the fourth innings to win the test. Raja was suitably impressed with that diary.

We spent an hour and half or so at my place. Those days we did not have cameras on mobile phones. People carried handycams. Raja had brought one such handycam. I had asked a couple of my staff to be present. One of them took our photos which Raja later put up on our cricket forum.

After one hour and half or so, we went to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Asterix, a native of Nagpur knew various places in Nagpur quite well. Our discussion continued during that time as well. Raja told us that he had watched the movie “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo”(1963) with very high expectations but he felt badly let down. 🙂 Raja has subsequently learnt to keep his expectations low while watching Hindi movies. 🙂

While discussing musical matters and bloggers, we discussed Greta (Memsaab) and her blog. Raja mentioned that Greta’s birthday fell a few days ago. We also discussed the fact that her birthday fell so close to that of Shammi Kapoor that she was a big fan of.

Those were the days when the blog followed the concept of “farmaish”. Farmaish page was a popular page of the blog. Raja himself was a big farmaish sender. Raja had sent lots of farmaishes in the blog farmaish page. I asked him for a farmaisdh face to face- easily the first such farnmaish for the blog. Raja chose the song “Baar baar din ye aaye” and dedicated it to Greta. :).

After dinner, Raja and Asterix dropped me back at my place at about 10:45 PM or so and thus ended a memorable evening / night for me.

Next day, I posted that article on Raja’s farmaish where I described this meeting in brief. This aricle received several comments including that of Raja as well.

Raja in his comment to this post wrote:-

As Atul says, the two of us finally managed to meet each other. It was really memorable for me too. I have long admired Atul’s witty comments, not just on this blog but also on our cricket forum. He has these one-liners that I call Atulisms. ??

We had a very nice time together. Atul walked me through the process he goes through to post songs on his blog. We discussed other stuff too – including a diary he used to maintain way back in 1976, with handwritten cricket scorecards and Hindi film songs. Those were pre-internet days, so every piece of info we could gather from any source was very valuable. Indeed Atul and I can relate to a lot of things – I used to also maintain cricket statistics in this manner. 🙂 🙂

Over dinner, Atul asked me for a song farmaish “on the spot”. This birthday song was fresh in my mind – I remember searching for it a few days earlier on his blog and not finding it. It is my favourite birthday song – I love Rafi’s voice in this, I love the picturisation, I love the lyrics.

I did not expect Atul to turn this around so quickly on the blog. Thanks a lot, Atul.

Four years later, I described this visit in more detail during the run up to our 10K post, when I wrote about Raja in this post. There I have quoted what Raja wrote about this visit in cricforum. Here are his reminiscences:-

I came over from Bangalore to Nagpur to meet Asterix and Atul.
I first met Asterix on the 28th evening (he picked me up from the station).
We then arranged to meet Atul the following evening (Friday – 29th).

We went over to Atul’s place. Very nice place – Atul has people at his beck and call for his household work. * jealous *

Anyway, it was a very memorable experience.

Already meeting Asterix the previous evening was a great feeling – and now meeting Atul also was just amazing.
We discussed a lot of stuff – mostly about CF of course. And about Atul’s song blog.

Asterix and Atul also expressed concern about the increasing dominance of Bangladesh on the cricket scene and how it could impact minnows like BCCI who are in the same group in the World Cup. ?? Personally I think they were more concerned about the impact on a certain cricket forum. ??

Atul then showed us how he builds up his song blog – from a blog owner’s perspective.
It was fascinating.

We also got to see some of his VCD collection. More than 150 VCDs – most of them old (forgotten) Hindi movies. These provide the raw material for his song blog to a large extent. And I am informed by Atul that this is only a part of his collection – he has much more.

The evening was already going very well – but then it went many notches higher for me when Atul showed us something else.
This really brought tears (of nostalgia) to my eyes.

He showed us a diary that he used to maintain in 1976.

In those days, he used to write down cricket scorecards of various matches going on at that time.
Seeing the names of Gavaskar, Gaekwad, Vishwanath – written in Atul’s handwriting – really made me remember those days.

I got into a major nostalgia session – Asterix cut me short (like he often does ?? ), suggesting that we could continue the discussion over dinner. ??
(Actually we had another friend with us – not a CF person – and Asterix, understandably, did not want him to get bored).

In this diary, Atul also used to write down Hindi songs. Movie, singers, music directors – and full lyrics. As much as he could capture at that time from radio. Remember these were pre-Internet days, these were days when you really had to search and hunt for info that is readily available nowadays. You had to listen to a song umpteen times before you could get it right.

I think this passion is what has now morphed into Atul’s blog. Different times, new technology – but same, burning passion.

We then went out for dinner. By then it was a little late – we dropped Atul back at his place and returned to Asterix’s place (where I was staying), with very fond memories of our meeting.

Thank you, Atul. It was a very memorable evening. 29th October 2010.

I can barely believe that ten years have past since that memorable evening. It is true. We all, as well as the blog, are ten years older since that day.

In a way, it is a different kind of Blog Ten Year Challenge. I posted a song from a movie that day. Let me post another song from the same movie ten years later.

Following songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on this date (29 october 2010):-

Blog Post number Song Movie Year of release Posting time Remarks
3149 Teri nazar mein main rahoon meri nazar mein tu 1857 1946 7:19 AM Movie YIPPEED by now
3150 Tum hamen bhool gaye Balam 1949 8:13 AM Movie YIPPEED by now

3153 Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai magar main keh nahin saktaa Bachpan 1963 9:29 AM 3 songs covered out of 7

Out of two eligible movies for Blog Ten Year Challenge today, the first movie “Jalpari”(1952) has already been taken up earlier in the day. So that leaves us with “Bachpan”(1963) as the other eligible movie.

“Bachpan”(1963) was directed by Nazar for New Panchratan pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Menka Irani, Saleem, Manorama, David, Daisy Irani, Bhudo Advani etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past. Iconic Rafi song Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai magar main keh nahin saktaa was discussed on the blog on this day ten year ago.

The remaining four songs are lesser known songs. Some are even unavailable. Out of the available songs, the song under discussion shines on its own merit and deserves to be better known among music lovers. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisatiuon of this song. The song is an ideal song to be listened to at night. It is a song that firmly belongs to the league of what I call “Chhaayaageet” songs.


Song-Mere naina mad ke pyaale (Bachpan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Mere naina mad ke pyaale
Mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sabhaale
koi aaj dil sabhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
Mere naina mad ke pyaale

jo nazar milaaye mujh se
wohi hosh apne khoye
wohi hosh apne khoye
jise dekh loon main hans ke
wo khushi se mera hoye
wo khushi se mera hoye
use badh ke baandh le phir
mere gesu kaale kaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sambhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale

bujhe dil ko roshni de
mere tan ke ujle saaye
mere tan ke ujle saaye
ke huyi shama jo raushan
to patange ghir ke aaye
to patange ghir ke aaye
ke amar rahenge mar kar
mujhe pyaar karne waale
mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sambhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale

“Captain Sheroo”(1963) was directed by Dharam Singh for Bina Chitra, Bombay. This costume drama has Jairaj, Helen, Tiwari, Niranjan Sharma, Padma Rani, Amirbai, Ajit Soni, Jillani, Tuntun, Ramlal, Maqbool etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Captain Sheroo”(1963) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Mohinder.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. The song sounds like “hansta hua nooraani chehra” from “Parasmani”(1963). My guess is that this song too is a synchronised dance song, just like the “Parasmani” (1963) song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Nazar ko milaana milaa kar jhukaana (Captain Sheroo)(1963) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-S Mohinder
Both

Lyrics

Nazar ko milaana
Nazar ko milaana
milaa kar jhukaana
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani

main chaahoon chhupaana

main chaahoon chhupaana
na soojhe bahaana
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
Nazar ko milaana milaa kar jhukaana

jhuki jhuki aankh mein khumaar aa gaya
beqaraar zindagi mein pyaar aa gaya
jhuki jhuki aankh mein khumaar aa gaya
beqaraar zindagi mein pyaar aa gaya
pyaar saathh leke intzaar aa gaya
intzaar aa gaya
ke dil ka fasaana
ke dil ka fasaana
nazar ka churaana
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
Nazar ko milaana milaa kar jhukaana

wo miley nigaah se nigaah mil gayi
mere dil ko ek nayi raah mil gayi
wo miley nigaah se nigaah mil gayi
mere dil ko ek nayi raah mil gayi
jaaneman tujhe kisi ki chaah mil gayi
kisi ki chaah mil gayi

kabhi muskuraana
kabhi muskuraana
kabhi jhenp jaana
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
yahi hai muhabbat ki pehli nishaani
Nazar ko milaana milaa kar jhukaana

“Naag Mohini”(1963) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Dimple Films Bombay. This “pauraaanik” movie had Vijaya Chadhary, Mahipal, Sundar, Rajan Haksar, Bablu, Uma Dutt, Indira Bansal, Rajrani, Sood, Khursheed etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Naag Mohini”(1963) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

The song is picturised as an “inspirational” song, which to me sounds more like a “putting up a brave face” genre of song on a kid who could be Bablu going by the star cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the kid.


Song-Hum hain baalak kal ke maalik (Naag Mohini)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho mat naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

jungle ho ujaad ho
saamne pahaad ho
sheron ki dahaad ho
koi na sake re humen thhaamne
din ho ya raat ho
aandhi barsaat ho
koi bhi na saath ho
badhte hi jaayen hum saamne
hum hain bachche
dhun ke sachche
sheron ki santaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hai baalak
kal ke maalik

dikhne mein kamzor hum
shakti mein ghanghor hum
aandhiyon ka zor hum
pade na kisi ko hum se vaasta
chaahe jalti aag ho
bhaazlu cheeta baagh ho
fan uthaaye naag ho
koi na roke humaara raasta
hum hain ladke
hum jo bhadken
ban jaaye toofaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho na naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

Non Film Songs of Mukesh – 02
————————————-
These days, new-borns, barely a few hours old are made to wear full pants. It was not the case three and a half decades back at least in my case.

I got my full pant stitched only when I entered High School from primary grade. And, that too since it was mandatory for boys to start wearing full pants from VIII standard. Else, who knows, I would have had to wait for another 3 years for this luxury when I would step into college life. Jeans and readymade pants were an ultra-luxury which would have to wait for some more time.

What “aspect” of the body of a 12-year-old boy gets covered by wearing full pants is something which I have never been able to contemplate till today. Now at 46, I prepare wearing shorts even when going to the market. 🙂 How times change.

With full pants, the amount of pocket money received from parents also started improving. Especially, during and after matriculation, along with the coins, times arrived wherein I started possessing currency notes of 1, 2, 5 and on rare occasions even 10 and 20.

Family visits to restaurants did happen frequently. However, unlike the popular Punjabi la carte option these days, it was more of a combination of 2-3 snacks even for dinner. After matriculation, I developed the audacity of visiting restaurants on my own and ordering food items of my choice. This was basically after returning from college classes which were not so stringent as that of school. Then there was the option of bunking classes too.

Onion uttappa with a cup of tea or limca were my preferred choices. Sitting alone in restaurants and savouring these dishes is an experience I will never forget. At Belgaum, the place from which I hail, there were a few restaurants known for their special dishes. A hotel named “New Grand” established in 1948, had a popular and unique taste of upma which continues to be the talk of the city even today. Recently, the hotel has been demolished and moved away to a nearby location. But the ambience and the taste of food items no longer exits.

There is also a restaurant called “Ajantha” famous for its missal. It continues to be served to this day, but then again, the aroma and the taste of the bygone era is lost forever. Soft and fluffy idlis with unique taste of coconut chutney and sambar continue to be much preferred dish in this hotel to this day.

Quite adjacent to “New Grand” hotel was a theatre named Rex, which has also been now modified into a mini-mall/coffee shop etc. It was in this theatre that I saw my first and only “old Hindi movie” on a big screen.

The movie name was Neel Kamal released in 1968 which I saw in 1991/1992. I basically went to see it for the Rafi saab number Tujhko pukaare meraa pyaar. The storyline was quite annoying for me. Waheeda Rehman must have had a good walking exercise while the film was being made. 🙂

However, apart from the Rafi numbers, I came out of the theatre appreciating Asha Bhosale’s rendition of He rom rom mein basnewaale Ram. Listening and watching these songs which I had heard on radio/tape recorder on the big screen was quite a thrilling experience for me.

Born in 74, by the time I was 18, it was early nineties. Readers of the blog may well acknowledge that I write and present songs mainly from 40’s to 60’s. I sometimes venture into 70’s in case the need arises. So, basically, I discuss songs from an era before I was born. 🙂

Coming to watching old Hindi movies, I must admit that I score very badly on this front. I am yet to watch even classics such as Barsaat (49), Anmol Ghadi (1946), Deedar(1951), Andaz (1949) and a host of such movies. I did buy CD/DVD of many such movies but never cared to watch them.

Coming back to pocket money and my newfound freedom to spend on my own, I got myself involved into buying stamps, coins, books, novels, audio cassettes etc.

During one such venture in a cassettes shop, I came across a two-cassette pack of non-film ghazals of Mukesh. While I was quite familiar with filmi songs, it was on very odd occasions that I heard the NFS of Mukesh on Radio Ceylon. My joy knew no bounds when I caught sight of this pack. However, the joy seemed to be short lived. Let me explain.

The two-cassette pack was priced 55 and I must have hardly had 30 rupees. I was adamant on buying whatever 30 rupees could buy. The shop keeper explained that since it is a pack of two, individual cassettes cannot be sold. And for me to collect another 25 rupees would have taken months. I spent quite a while with him imploring and pleading to sell one of them. After much cajoling he did agree to sell Cassette No 01 priced 27.5 rupees.

The episode did not end with my purchase of one cassette. My next demand (off course free of cost) was the cover of the pack with a debonair looking Mukesh in excellent print staring straight into the eyes of the beholder. With special permission from the bosses, I am reproducing the picture of the cassette cover. I have always been awestruck with the gaze in the eyes of Mukesh in this picture.

The same snap of Mukesh was on the main cover. Now tell me, which Mukesh fan would walk away without possessing this poster.

Digressing, “poster” reminds me of my other craving and madness of collecting model Deepti Bhatnagar’s posters, calendars, advertisements or whatever my eyes would set upon featuring the beauty. This will require a separate and detailed article altogether and thankfully this series gives me ample scope and opportunity of indulging in such revelations. As the film trailers would shout “Coming soon at a theatre near you “, I have revealed the model’s name to keep the post awaited. 🙂

Coming back to the cassette story, the shopkeeper was in no position to yield stating that he himself is not sure if the other cassette would be sold as I had just bought only one. He even threatened to take back what he had just sold and return my money. Counting my blessings, I ran away with this single cassette. The date on which I had bought it was 30 January 1992. The cassette was released by HMV 4 years earlier in February 1988. I know these details since the cassette cover is still in my possession and I had this good habit of writing the date on which I bought such things.

At the shop, it did not cross my mind that I should have tried taking a photostat copy of the back of the pack or even noting the details of the songs that were printed. As for me, mobile phones in 1992 were only in the books of George Orwell, Arthur Clarke etc. 🙂

Well, after a couple of months, I did go back to the shop to purchase the second cassette. Yes, along with the pack cover ofcourse. 🙂

Unfortunately, the shop was selling some other commodities and the cassette guy had vanished. On enquiry, I was told that the earlier guy had closed shop for whatever reasons. I only prayed to God that the reason should not have been the sale of a single cassette for what should have been sold in a pack of two.

For many years, I always wondered what songs Cassette number 2 contained. Now with the advent of internet and the ease with which anything under the sun can be searched, I have got the full details of the cassettes. Interested readers may visit this site for the same.

Readers may be aware that I have posted two articles on the association of Mukesh with Khaiyyam saab in my other series. One article with the filmi songs of the combo and the other featured all the NFS.

Here is the post which covered the all NFS of Mukesh with Khaiyyam saab..
Coming to today’s NFS, I have chosen a Ghalib ghazal composed by Khaiyyam saab. Needless to mention, this ghazal is one of the ten songs in cassette number 01.

This ghazal was first released on records in 1963, as can be seen from the record label above.


Song-Ham rashq ko apne bhi gawaara nahin karte (Mukesh NFS)(1963) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Ghalib, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics

ham rashq ko apne bhi gawaaraa nahin karte
ham rashq ko apne bhi gawaaraa nahin karte

Non Film Songs of Mukesh – 01
————————————————

“But, I dont remember singing this song.”- Legendary singer Kundan Lal Saigal is said to have said these words on hearing Mukesh’s iconic solo song from Peheli Nazar (1945).
Of all the awards, love, affection and recognition that Mukesh continues to draw the world over, I feel the above words by the legend was the single most and greatest achievement of Mukesh.

Remembering Mukesh on his remembrance day, I humbly start with this new series on his non-film songs.

Mukesh is one of the few singers whose filmi and non-filmi songs continue to be popular among the masses.

Before I proceed further, we must again thank one of the pioneers of compilation of film songs and the untiring efforts of Shri Harish Raghuwanshi, the compiler of Mukesh Geet Kosh. It was because of his widely acclaimed work that a fair and correct number of songs sung by Mukesh came to the fore. He has been most helpful to me in all my previous posts on Mukesh. The conviction with which I conclude and present posts is the assurance given by him that a particular table of song contents is correct. I will always remain hugely indebted to all the help he has rendered.

As we have seen in the past few years, quite a few rare and seldom heard released and unreleased film songs of Mukesh continue to be unearthed from the archives of HFM history.

Same is the case with NF songs. Though there are several lists available on the net, as a matter of fact not all are in the public domain as of now.

As such it is difficult to pin-point the exact number of NF songs sung by Mukesh in this post but we shall proceed with the series and see where we eventually land up. And since this series will generally be devoid of tables etc, I am contemplating writing on my personal experience topics in the forthcoming posts.

However, this post is on Mukesh and his voice. A phenomenal voice which cannot be explained in plain words and continues to enthrall music lovers the world over.

For Mukesh it was never about number of songs. Nor was it about remuneration. There are many recollections by artists who have said that Mukesh upon rendering the songs used to walk away without collecting his fees if the filmmakers were into any financial trouble.

In spite of having huge financial problems in the mid-fifties, Mukesh was never lured by financial gains. And, that is also the reason why he opted to sing many NFS.

It was always about quality of songs that he sang. No wonder it is an indisputable fact that he had the highest hit ratio among all his contemporaries.

Sadness in the voice was his virtue, a trademark that will remain etched in the annals of music for times to come.

For today’s inaugural post of the series, I take up this popular song written by Madhukar Rajasthani and composed by J. P. Kaushik.


Song-Aaj gagan se chanda utra (Mukesh NFS) (1963) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Madhukar Rajasthani, MD-J P Kaushik

Lyrics

aaj gagan se chanda utraa
aa gaya meri baahon mein
apalak dekhoon
keha na sakoon kuchh
hoyi raat nigaahon mein
aaj gagan se chanda utraa

cham cham chamke pathh taaron ka
chham chham karta kaun chala
cham cham chamke pathh taaron ka
chham chham karta kaun chala
sapnon ki tasveer si khinch gayi
door gagan ki raahon mein aen
aaj gagan se chanda utraa
aa gaya meri baahon mein
aaj gagan se chanda utraa

jaane kis dhun mein deewaana
madhushaala ke dwaar pe aaya
jaane kis dhun mein deewaana
madhushaala ke dwaar pe aaya
pyaala chhoota haath se uske
bikhra husn ke paanwon mein aen
aaj gagan se chanda utraa
aa gaya meri baahon mein
aaj gagan se chanda utraa

Out of the six movies represented as above we have only two movies eligible for the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’ today viz. ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ and ‘Dulhan-1958’.

When our dear Prakash ji sent the lyrics for the today’s song it reminded me that I had watched this movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ during my growing years in mid-late seventies.

This movie was screened during the weekly movie-screening at the ‘recreation club’ building of the colony we were staying then. Movies like ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’, ‘Sant Gyaneshwar-1964’ etc were some of the movie I got to watch during those days.

Though I do not remember the story of this movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ now, remembering a few of its songs was no problem as they were embedded in my memory.Recalling these songs and reliving the nostalgia of actor Mahipal’s movies’ during the preparation of this post brought back memories of watching those black and white movies during my childhood days.

This movie had some nice melodious songs and its music was highly enjoyable.

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ had nine songs, all written by Bharat Vyas. The music was composed by Pandit Shivaram. Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Mahendra Kapoor had sung six solo songs in this movie and only one of them have posted on the blog so far. That gives us five solo songs by Mahendra Kapoor to be posted on the blog. Today we are going to listen one of them.

Manna Dey had sung one solo and Mukesh had one duet with Suman Kalyanpur which has also been posted on the blog. Suman Kalyanpur had solo song other than the duet with Mukesh which has also been posted on the blog.

Following are the four songs from this movie that have been posted on the blog;

Blog Day :

4390 Post No. : 15754

Today 25th July 2020 is being celebrated as Naag Panchami falling in this year ‘shraavan maas’ shukla paksh on Panchami. Greetings to all on this occasion which also marks the beginning of many upcoming festivals in our country.

For this occasion, I had earlier noted a movie falling under ‘movies with same titles’ to be presented with a song on the blog for today. However, when I checked that movie, I do not find a suitable song ‘praising naag devtaa’ in that movie (from seventies). Then I looked a new movie from the ‘seventies’ having ‘naag’ related titles so that it can make a ‘debut’ on the blog. But I could not find a suitable song in that movie too.

In our Hindi movies we have many mythological movies where ‘naag’ or ‘naag devtaa’ had an important role and many fantasy movies having the stories of ‘snakes’, ‘female snake revenge’ and or ‘snake charmers’. I thought to present a list of all such movies which have already been represented on the blog, but for now I have differed that for a separate post later in the future. In the process I came across this wonderful song from the 1963 movie ‘Naag Mohini’. I like this song very much and as I listened to it more and more it grows on me.

Today I am presenting this melodious song picturized on screen on Master Babloo who is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (yes, in those times, female singer’s voice would be the voice of a small child in songs 🙂 ).

“Naag Mohini-1963”, a mythological movie, was directed by Shantilal Soni for ‘Dimple Film, Bombay’. It has Vijaya Choudhary, Mahipal, Sunder, Rajan Haksar, Master Babloo, Uma Dutt, Indra Bansal, Rajrani, Sood and Khurshid. This movie has six songs written by Bharat Vyas and music is composed by Sardar Malik. Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices in the songs of this movie.

So far three songs from this movie ‘Naag Mohini-1963’ have been posted on the blog. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy this wondrous song and the cute performance on the song by Master Babloo. . .

As mentioned above the song is in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur, lyrics are by Bharat Vyas and music composed by Sardar Malik.

Blog Day :

4384 Post No. : 15740

Today is 19 july 2020. It was on this day in 2008 that this blog had started.

I had observed that the starting date was perhaps pre ordained. That day in 2008 was the first day of the month of Shraawan (or saawan), which is so very appropriate for a HFM blog, seeing that a big chunk of FM is inspired by saawan related songs, viz “rain songs”, “saawan ke jhoole” songs, and many other genres of songs.

I recently made another discovery. 19 july 2008 (and also today viz 19 july 2020) happen to be the 200th day of the year ! So, the belief that some higher forces , (rather than us mortals) are driving the affairs of this blog gets validated yet again.

People may have noticed that as many as four posts appeared today before 6 AM IST, and then there was no more activity. As it happened, I was going to get busy after 6 AM today so I made sure that today, the blog birthday should have a few posts. all regulars who had sent their articles on the occasion were scheduled to appear in the morning. I too intended to post at least one article, but that was not possible till evening.

Now that I am in a position to come to the keyboard again, let me try and post at least one of my writeups today.

Sudhir Jee made an observation that four songs appeared on this day ten years ago. On first three posts on that day, there was no mention of the day being the blog birthday. it was the fourth and final post of that day that mentioned this fact. 🙂

Today, every post is about blog birthday. so we have come a long way from that day.

We are not just adding posts, we are only gathering valuable database about HFM, and invaluable tidbits, often without realising it. Some of the information shared in these pages are not available elsewhere. Not just ordinary music lovers, but even relatives of HFM personalities are visitors of this blog. For instance, children of several music directors, lyricists and actors are visitors of this blog. Even some HFM personalities have visited and left comments in the blog. There visits , comments etc have been a source of great inspirations to us.

I must also stress that the regulars of this blog, including the contributors are all very special people in their own ways. We have among our regulars some have been related to HFM in some way or the other. Then there are some, whose ancestors have been great figures in some field or the other. We even have persons whose ancestors have been founding fathers of cities ! We have published authors and columnists among us. we have organisers of HFM events, and also people who have appeared on Radio/ TV shows, are among our contributors. So, we have a galaxy of distinguished contributors among us, who create quality content for the blog which enriches not just this blog but also HFM related knowledge base.

The fact that this blog has helped bring a galaxy of stars together is something that often escapes our attention. on this occasion, I want to acknowledge, appreciate and thank this galaxy of distinguished contributors, visitors and regulars. Without their contribution and encouragement, we would not have achieved the things that we have achieved over the 12 years that this blog has been in existence.

I feel that the blog is destined to achieved many more things in the years to come.

On this occasion, I present a song discussing this “anjuman sitaaron ki”. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerjee. the movie is “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). This obscure B grade movie was directed by B J Patel for Peoples Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shanti Lal, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Bhopali, Polsan, Shakila Bano etc in it.

The movie had six obscure but wondeful songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. This is the third song, a super song, and quite an appropriate song for the occasion.

Once again, I thank one and all on the occasion of the birthday of the blog. Let us hoope and wish that this musical bandwagon will keep rolling on and on for many more years.

Chorus

Lyrics

anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

ye uska jahaaaan hai
jo khud ek tohfa hai
ghamon se jo takraate hain
wahi manzilen paate hain
ye baaten ?? hain
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

ye saara zamaanaa
hai ik aashiyaana
bana lo jahaan ko apna
ye hai zindagi ka sapna
ye mera payaam (?) hai
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

Missing Films of 1960s – 115
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Frankly, I never really thought I would be posting a song for this most obscure of films. The name ‘Flying Horse’, with the accompanying information conspicuous for being so frugally available, kind of put this film near the bottom of the list with the likes of ‘Flight to Assam’ and ‘Mahavat’ (both from 1961), for which the expectation for traceability is kind of low enough to be non-existent.

So consider my surprise, and excitement of course, as I get a message from our Sadanand ji, about 10-12 days ago, with a link to this song, with the details claiming it to be one of the songs of this heretofore wonderfully extinct film. I played the song, I checked out the details – it all seemed to match. The song is listed in Geet Kosh as belonging to this film. This in my opinion, would constitute one of the rarest of the rare finds.

My interest in this song was further heightened, as I read the latter part of Sadanand ji’s message. First part of that dampening effect came when I read further to find that this song, although clearly listed for this film in the Geet Kosh, well, it also appears in the listing of another film. Further inputs from Sadanand ji, and more checking through the Geet Kosh reveals that there is another film titled ‘Saalgirah’, which also includes this song. And the fact that makes this scenario more interesting, as well as intriguing is, that ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as one of the unreleased films from the 1950s. As I tried to search for more info, my efforts were directed towards finding out what would be the common set of information for the two films, so as to establish some link between the two. A little digging revealed that there is only one common link between the two films, and that is the music director. That, in my mind, would serve to be an important linkage that would explain as well as support the scenario. The song would have been earlier prepared and recorded for the film ‘Saalgirah’, but then for whatever reason, the film was shelved. The tunes created would then become intellectual property either of the producer or the music director, depend on the understanding between the two.

Come 1963, and the film ‘Flying Horse’ – the music director chooses to use at least four of the songs prepared for the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. So this becomes one of the cases of songs meant for one movie, but used in another movie. And here is an additional piece of information that makes the scenario more interesting. The Geet Kosh listing for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ shows that two gramophone records were published for the film, containing 4 of the 5 five songs listed for this unreleased film. Now this publication went on to ensure that the four songs of this film, continued to be available, although the film itself was never completed and released.

As I reviewed the Geet Kosh entries for ‘Flying Horse’, I found that no  gramophone record nos. are listed for it. Presumably then, the two records and four songs originally recorded for ‘Saalgirah’ are likely the only recordings available for these songs. And so with a little agreeable extrapolation, based on the details as contained in Geet Kosh, I am rightly announcing the uncovering of the songs of this rare and obscure film.

And so here we go. The 1963 film ‘Flying Horse’ is directed by Trimurty for the banner of Vishwakala Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Krishna Kumari, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Kesari, Ameerbai Karnataki, Shri Bhagwan, Sudha, Madhumati, Omi, Khanna, Pandit Iqbal, Master Mohan, and RS Dubey. It is interesting to note a few familiar names in this cast of actors.

There are seven songs listed for this film. Interestingly, the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ has only five songs listed. The common denominator is the four songs that were published on gramophone records. The common factor of the music director across the two films also has a little variation. The name of the MD for ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as H Vijay. And the name of MD for ‘Flying Horse’ is listed as Vijay Honawar. Unless this is a coincidence of a superlative order, I would surmise that the two are the same person. Moreover the wordings of the titles of the four songs match exactly. And so does partially, the name of the lyricists. In the film ‘Saalgirah’ two of the four songs are credited to Madhuraj, one song to Munshi Khanjar, and one song to VR Sharma. In the case of ‘Flying Horse’, all the four songs are credited to Madhukar. It is known fact that Madhuraj is the pseudonym used on occasion by the poet Madhukar Rajasthani. And so does match the name of the lyricist also. The unexplained part that remains is why Madhukar Rajasthani is credited with two extra songs, that have been earlier credited to other lyricists. This will need research on available material like film information booklets etc. I cannot comment on this right now.

The singer’s name is listed in the details of the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. The singer for this song is Aashima Bannerji. The song itself is a very sad song of unfulfilled love – an expression that borders on a complete resignation to the vagaries of fate.

So, with some collation of available data, part extrapolation, and part tongue-in-cheek gumption, I present here this song which can be termed as a very rare find. Actually, the uploader of this song on YouTube has probably surmised similar conclusions, and has posted this song for the film ‘Flying Horse’. Another fact that Sadanand ji points out is important, this song was played on Radio Ceylon (now Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation 🙂 ) sometimes during 2019, albeit that announcement was for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’.

This series of missing films of 1960s, which has showcased 114 films already, over a span of – oh goodness – now almost five years, continues to be alive. In fact in the interim months since the previous two episodes was published in July 2019 and Jan 2020, I have received information input about the availability of songs of a few more films. That is heartening news, and the series is going to be alive for some more episodes. Watch this space for more postings in this series.

Song – Dheere Dheere Jal Re Manwa  (Flying Horse) (1963) Singer – Aashima Bannerji, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vijay Honawar

Lyrics 

aaa aaa aaa aaa

dheere dheere jal re manwa

gaaun kya mann ki veentee

geet adhure pyaar ke
geet adhure pyaar ke
praanon mein bkali bhari

aansoo rahe nikal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal

jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
mil na sakungi tumse main
mil na sakungi tumse main
sapne rahe machal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
nainon mein raat dhal rahi
duniya rahi badal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
