Today, December 29, 2021 is the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, singer, actor and the music director in Hindi and Bangla films. The resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar seems to have influenced the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan to try him as a playback singer in Hindi films. Subir Sen sang just 28 songs in Hindi films in the span of around 12 years. Most of the songs he rendered became popular.

Subir Sen (24/07/1934 – 29/12/2015) was born in Assam and grew up in Guwahati where his father had a pharmacy business. He completed his matriculation from Guwahati. From the childhood, he was drawn towards music and this was the reason that made his father to shift to Kolkata after selling his pharmacy business. During his growing up days, he was highly influenced by the singing of Dhananjay Bhattacharya, Hemant Kumar and Talat Mehmood. When he started singing their songs in some programmes, the audience started appreciating his renditions. He felt that he can also sing like his favourite singers which made him to pursue the singing as a career.

Subir Sen enrolled himself in Marris College of Music (later renamed as Bhatkhande Music Institute), Lucknow. During the third year of his college, he received the first prize for singing a vilambit Khayal in raag Purvi. Later, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri, a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. On the advice of Acharya Chinmoy, Subir Sen learnt the Thumri singing from Usha Ranjan Mukherjee for over 2 years.

On an invitation from Guru Dutt, Subir Sen along with the music director, Sudhin Dasgupta shifted to Mumbai and became the part of the Guru Dutt’s Films for his film under production (probably for ‘Pyaasa’1957). However, though they were on the payroll of Guru Dutt Films, they never got opportunity to sing in his film. It is said that Guru Dutt sent Subir Sen to S D Burman for audition. He introduced himself as a singer who sang in the style of Hemant Kumar. S D Burman rejected him without taking his audition by asking him as to why he should use him when he can have the original voice of Hemant Kumar. (Source: Interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma on S D Burman).

While Sudhin Dasgupta returned to Kolkata, Subir Sen got an opportunity to sing for the first time in Hindi films under the baton of Shankar-Jaikishan who were impressed with the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar. The first song he sang in Hindi film was manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye in ‘Kathputli’ (1957) picturised on Balraj Sahni. The song became very popular and was one of the three songs from ‘Kathputli’ (1957) to figure in the top 32 songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1958. In 1959-60, Subir Sen sang six songs in six films with six music directors (including one under the baton of Hemant Kumar), all of which became popular.

Subir Sen again came into the attention when his song, dil mera ek aas ka panchhi picturised on Rajendra Kumar (who was nick named as ‘Jubilee Kumar’), became even more popular than his first song, ranking 5th among the top 32 Hindi film songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1961.

With the kind of the early successes, Subir Sen must have dreamt of a bright future for him as a playback singer in Hindi films. But his discography in the table given below reveals that his playback singing career in Hindi films did not reach to a level to make a living out of it. In most of the films, he got the opportunity to sing only one song.

The initial euphoria Subir Sen created in Hindi film music due to the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar may have becoming a stumbling block in his playback singing career. It would be a natural response from the music directors that they would rather work with Hemant Kumar who had already established himself as a playback singer than Subir Sen. Also, producers, directors, actors and the film financiers/distributors have their own preferences for playback singers among the established ones.

Ashutosh Banerjee, music director who had composed many Bangla films and non-film songs for Subir Sen was of the view that while in Mumbai, Subir Sen started listening to a lot of western music during which Jim Reeves and Nat King Cole became his favourite singers. From Jim Reeves, he picked up the tonal quality and from Nat King Cole the drama in singing. In his subsequent renditions, Subir Sen was influenced by the styles of these two American singers.

Some changes in Subir Sen’s rendition style are evident in his later songs. For instance, in ‘dheere chalo zara’ from ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’ (1961), one can feel some shades of Mukesh in the song. In ‘dekho na jaaneman’ which he sang for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Boy Friend’ (1961), his voice sounds somewhat different giving a feel of Manna Dey. I have listened to some of his Bangla non-film songs and I feel that he had adapted to a style of rendition to sound somewhat different from Hemant Kumar’s voice. For examples, ‘oy ujjwal din’ and ‘pagol hawa’ (a rehash of non-film Bangla song originally sung by Jatileshwar Mukherjee and ‘na jaane tum’ from ‘Chhoti Si Baat’, 1976).

With his playback singing career in Hindi films getting stangnated, Subir Sen returned to Kolkata sometime in early 1970s. He recorded hundreds of Bengali modern and Rabindra Sangeet numbers over three decades. He also acted along with Uttam Kumar in Bangla film, ‘Momer Alo’ (1964) and in Hindi film “Anubhav’ (1971).

Subir Sen and also Dwijen Mukherjee could not create a place for themselves in Hindi films mainly because they were born with their voice boxes almost similar to Hemant Kumar. And both of them were the contemporary of Hemant Kumar and in competition with him. Also, they came at a time when the troika of the main male playback singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had already well-established in Hindi film industry.

On the occasion of the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, I am presenting ‘chaand tale jhoom jhoom tirak rahi hai’ rendered by him with Suman Kalyanpur for the film ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963). The song is written by Shailendra which is set to music by Dattaram.

With this song, all the six songs of ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ have been covered in the Blog.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) was produced by Surinder Kapoor under the banner of Amar Chhaaya Films and was directed by Kedar Kapoor. The star cast included Geeta Bali and Pradeep Kumar in the lead role with the supporting cast of Agha, Vijaylaxmi, Siddhu, Sunder, Tun Tun, Mohan Choti, Ravikant etc. Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Bhagwan, Kumkum, and Shyama made their guest appearances in the film. This was Surinder Kapoor’s maiden film as a producer.

I was wondering as to how Surinder Kapoor could manage to rope in Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor for the qawwali song in the film. It became clear when I came to know that Surinder Kapoor was the cousin of Prithviraj Kapoor. When he shifted to Mumbai from Peshawar in 1950, Prithviraj Kapoor helped him in getting his first job as an assistant to K Asif in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960). Since the film took a lot of time to be completed, Surinder Kapoor left K Asif and became the Secretary to Geeta Bali. Kedar Kapoor, the film’s director was from Peshawar. Probably, he may also be related to Prithviraj Kapoor.

It was Geeta Bali who encouraged Surinder Kapoor to become a film producer. She arranged the finance, the crew and the cast. So, getting the guest actors for the qawwali song became an easy task for Surinder Kapoor. The film was launched in 1958 and got completed in 1963. The film did not fare well on the box office. This was the last released film of Geeta Bali.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) had six songs in the film written by Shailendra (5) and Anand Bakshi (1) which were set to music by Dattaram. Four songs have been covered on the Blog.

Here is the 5th song ‘Muhammad Shah Rangeele gaawat aaj prem raag’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Manna Dey on the words of Shailendra. The video clip of the song is not available on any video sharing platform. So, it is difficult to know as to in which context, this song was picturised in the film. My wild guess is that the song may have been picturised on Agha in a comical situation using the bandish-based classical song.

Muhammad Shah ‘Rangeela’ was the Mughal emperor during 1719 to 1748. He was a patron of performing arts and music. His court had many musicians, the prominent among them being Niyamat Khan who used to compose bandishes under his pen name. ‘Sadarang’ and his nephew, Feroz Khan under the pen name of ‘Adarang’. Sadarang has been credited with the introduction of Khayal as a form of Hindustani classical music. He composed many Khayal bandishes for his desciples which included a few women from the harem of Muhammed Shah ‘Rangeela’.

There are some persons who are known by their work and not by their names. Niyamat Khan was one of them whose name is unknown for the present generation. Some of us may have listened to his khayal bandishes rendered by stalwarts like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Ustad Amir Khan, Ustad Rashid Khan, etc without knowing that these were composed by Niyamat Khan ‘Sadarang’.

One of the Khayal bandish composed by Niyamat Khan was ‘Muhammad Shah rangeele re, tum bin main kya karoon badariya, nit na suhaawe’ in raag Miyan Ki Malhar in praise of Muhammad Shah. The song under discussion is based on this bandish with different ‘bole’ written by Shailendra and composed by Dattaram in raag ‘Miyan Ki Malhar’. It is rendered as ‘chhota khayal’.

By the way, Muhammad shah rangeele re from ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) was also based on the abovementioned bandish. Both ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) and ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) took a long time to be completed and released. So, it is difficult to guess as to which one of two films got inspired from this bandish first.

Today’s song is from the ‘1963’ movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

I have in past written about how I find some songs which were embedded in my impressionable mind in the childhood, either because of watching some movies or listening the songs on Radio.

Today’s song is one such song.

I had in my earlier post here mentioned that I had watched this movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ when I was growing and have forgotten it now.
But I was always remembering this movie’s title and couple of its songs, and I was always looking for them.
So last year when I presented a song from this movie, I also go through the list of the other songs from this movie just out of interest. I did not listen to the remaining songs then.

Now, deviating from today’s post a little, I would like to mention one other song also from a mythological movie that I was vaguely remembering was ‘shankar bhole
bhaale shail bihaari, dam dam dam dam dmru baaje, traahimaam, traahimaam’.

I was sure that I had watched the movie where this song was there in my growing years.

I was always looking for this song and the only thing I remember was Dara Singh playing the Shivji’s role.

Few years back this song ‘shankar bhole bhaale shail bihaari’ was posted on the blog on 07.03.2016. But this did not contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Four years later I presented a song ‘bolo shiv shiv shambhu bam bam bam’ from the movie ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’. It also didn’t contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Then the ‘dam dam dam damru baje’ words were also not there, and I thought that I may have, in my growing years, mixed-up with songs from the above movies and with a song from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ which is another movie I have a nostalgia associated with it. There is a song in this movie ‘Dam Dam Dam Dam Damru baje’.

Now we come back to today’s post. About a month back when ‘shraavan’ month was about to start I started looking suitable songs to share on the blog. Also, I was looking for movies where few songs were required to ‘Yippeeee’ them on the blog.

Normally during this period of the year (i.e. shraavan month and later Ganpati festival) I am always reminded of some mythological and other movies which I had watched when I was growing.

Last year around the same time I had presented a song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’. The song was posted on 07.08.2020. Whatever songs from this movie have been posted on the blog are good songs and I like them very much.

I was remembering that there is a ‘naag-devtaa’ song in this movie. I thought I would present it on ‘Naag Panchami’ and if not on that day, I would share it in this month of ‘shraavan’ at least.

So, I take a chance to listen remaining songs from this movie and came across the today’s song. And finally, I got this ‘traahimaam …’ which actually is ‘traahimaam
Paahimaam’ 😊

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Roopkalaa Pictures’. It was produced by Mahipatray Shah. It had Anita Guha, Mahipal, with Ramsingh, Krishnakumari, Kummo Tripathi, and Raja Nene. They were supported by Ratnamala, T.N. Sinha, Prakash, Yunus Parwez, Mridula, Punam Kapoor, Baijnath, Ajit, Rehana, Uma Dutt, R.S. Dube, Munshi, Shekhar, Chand, Devchand, Lal Bahadur, Kishore, Dilawar Khan, Baby Chand, Burhan, Jugal Kishore, Dinanath, Vijay Kumar and Master Aziz.

The story of this movie was written by Vishwanath Pande, C.K. Mast, Pandit Madhur, and S.M. Abbas.
Editing of this movie was done by Ramchandra Mahadik.

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ had nine songs, all written by Pandit 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 two of them have been posted on the blog so far. That gives us four solo songs more 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 is the list of the songs of this movie as appearing in the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

S.No. Song Title Posted On
01 Sabko naach nachaane waala 24.11.2011
02 Bhagwaan Krishna ki amar kahaani
03 Jaa jaa jaa chhod de o chhaliyaa 07.08.2010
04 Apne piyaa ki main to bani re joganiya 25.10.2009
05 Bhaarat bhoomi mahaan hai
06 Ye duniya banaana aur banaa ke phir chalaana 07.08.2020
07 Nadiya na piye kabhi apna jal 15.05.2015
08 Ho o naag devtaa traahimaam paahimam Being presented today
09 Kan kan mein bhagwaan

As mentioned above today we listen to a song sung by Mahendra Kapoor which on screen is lip-synced by Mahipal (I have always loved watching him on the screen).

From the picturisation of the song I guess that the King’s (Yunus Parwez) son (Master Aziz) is very sick or maybe he has lost his life (because of snake-bite) and all efforts to revive him are failed. And so finally Mahipal is praying ‘Naag devtaa’ to bring back the child’s life. ‘Naag devtaa’ finally saves the child.

The video of this song is little longer and includes conversation which I have not included in the lyrics.

Let us now listen and enjoy one more song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

(I would like to see this movie moving to ‘Yippeeee-land’ as early as possible 😊 )

Bura bhala jaisa bhi karega

“Mummy Daddy”(1963) was directed by Narendra Dave for Golden Movies, Bombay. This “social” movie had Ameeta, Sudesh Kumar, Lalita Paar, Tiwari, Maruti, Manorama, Niranjan Sharma, Jagdeesh Kanal, Rajendra Singh, Jamal, Satish, Shamlal, Rajnath, R P Sharma, Nadir, Mansaram, Amrit, Baby Chaand, Ravikant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Narbada Shankar, Rata Gaurang, Madhumati, Meera Parel, Rajni, Burhan, Bihari, R P Kapoor, Hari Sharma, Chanda etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Mummy Daddy”(1963) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata. Prem Dhaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of Sudesh Kumar and Ameeta. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to thro light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aisa nahin hoon aji main main aisa nahin hoon(Mummy Daddy)(1963) Singers-Mukesh, Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
tujhe keh doon main apna phir haath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
teri hoke main sajna jo saath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

pyaar mera kaise duniya mitaayegi
yaad teri dil se mere jaane na paayegi
pyaar mera kaise duniya mitaayegi
yaad teri dil se mere jaane na paayegi
tujhse karoon waada
tujhse karoon waada
phir aap usey tod doon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon

dekhiye zamaana humko sataayega
aap mere saath hain to kya wo jalaayega
dekhiye zamaana humko sataayega
aap mere saath hain to kya wo jalaayega
darr ke zamaane se
darr ke zamaane se
jo pyaar tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

aap agar bolen haazir ye jaan hai
pyaar mein jo aisa kahe wo to naadaan hai
aap agar bolen haazir ye jaan hai
pyaar mein jo aisa kahe wo to naadaan hai
tod ke ye naata
tod ke ye naata
jo aur se main jod doon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
teri hoke main sajna jo saath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

It can be seen from the table of 1963 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 111 songs in movies released in 1963. As many as 103 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 37 movies of 1963 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 31 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 8 Lata songs belonging to 6 movies of 1963 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Bhootnath”(1963). This stunt movie was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Sevak Films, Bombay. The movie had Vijaya Chaudhary, Ranjan, MohanChoti, Rajan Haksar, Jeeankala, Ulhas, Kundan, Prem Sagar, Dan Singh, Lal Bahadur, Dalda, Roshanlal, Kumar Sahu, Laxmi Chhaaya, Chanda, Ameer, Daood, Shaida, Sundar, Nazeer Kashmiri etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. To songs from the movie (inclusding one Lata Mangeshkar solo has been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Bhootnath”(1963). Keshav Trivdi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal.

This lesser known song is a lovely song to listen to. The song is picturised on Vijaya Chaudhary I guess. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady lip syncing the song.Listening to this song, the first thought that crossed my mind was that this song is a hidden gem that deserved to be better known.

‘Jab Se Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963’ is an eligible movie under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today (30 november 2020) as one of its songs was posted on 30.11.2010.

Though one song of this movie was also posted on 18.11.2010, we missed the opportunity of discussing its song on that day ten years later. Our dear Prakash ji had already sent lyrics for two songs to cover these two occasions. Today gives us another opportunity of covering a song from this movie under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge” series.

Following six posts were published this day ten years ago on 30 november 2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhoome re kali bhanwraa ulajh gayaa kaanton mein Naukri-1954 All songs covered

Ye din din hain khushi ke Jabse Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963 03 songs posted
Hamse hoti muhabbat jo tumko Muhabbat Isko Kehte Hain-1965 All songs covered

Though the blog scored a ‘sixer’ on the last day of the month of that year 2010 it left ‘three balls’ without scoring a single run 😊 i.e. 27th, 28th & 29th November’2010 were the ‘dot’ days for the blog. Still it managed to hit a century with this ‘six’ on the last day of the month. Total score of posts of November’2010 is 105. (Things like this happen in Hindi movies or specially in ‘MKD’ movies 😊

Now, in the current month, the blog is still struggling at sixty-one posts till the time of writing of this post.

Let us just take a quick look at how the blog has so far been performing in the month of November in previous years since its ‘inception’;

S.No. Year No of posts

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

Let us enjoy today’s lovely nok jhonk song and close November’2020 on a happy note for the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ and move on to December …

If we look at the statistics of the month of November over the years, this will be the first November where number of posts cross fifties and do not not enter nineties. 😊 Out of twelve Novembers so far, seven have scored centuries, two closed in the forties, and three in nineties. This, the thirteenth November for the blog seems to be ending in the sixties today …

over to the song now …

Lyrics of this song have been sent by Prakashchandra.

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

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
na soojhe bahaana
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
