Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Kuchh bhi kaam na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Kuchh bhi kaam na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa

Takht taaj ye raaj paat
Kuchh bhi to jaata saath nahin
Kuchh bhi to jaata saath nahin
Rok sake udtey panchhi ko
Ye to kisi ke haath nahin
Bhai ye bhi to kisi ke haath nahin
Laakh lagaa le pehre phir bhi
Laakh lagaa le pehre phir bhi
Zor nahin chal paayega
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din

Kya kya soche sochne waala

Jaane waala haath na aata
Aisa kahin kho jaata hai
Are aisa kahin kho jaata hai
Ek baar jo taara tootaa aa
Ek baar jo taara tootaa
Phir wo nazar na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Ae ae ae ae

O bolo Raam bolo

Na teri na meri duniya

Yahaan chali
Aur sadaa chalegi
Marzi upar waale ki
Ab marzi upar waale ki
Bura bhala jaisa bhi karega
Bura bhala jaisa bhi karega
Waisa hi phal paayega
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa

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.

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.


Song-Bhoole se kar liya pyaar (Bhootnath)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Keshav Trivedi, MD-Vedpal

Lyrics

bhoole se kar liya

deke jiya anmol

bhoole se kar liya pyar

kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
jaadu sa kar daala
kiski meethhi yaad me naache
man mera matwaala
ho man mera matwaala
raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan

raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan
deewaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani ee

meethha meethha dard nasheela

phail gaya nas nas mein
naa main apne bas mein rahi

khaali suhani chot karli manmaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani

———————————————————————————–

‘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
Hamko hanste dekh zamaanaa jalta hai Ham Sab Chor Hain- 1956 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’;

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 …

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

“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
marte hain vale un ki tamannaa nahin karte
marte hain vale un ki tamannaa nahin karte

dar pardaa unhen ghair se hai rabt-e-nihaani ee ee ee
dar pardaa unhen ghair se hai rabt-e-nihaani ee
zaahir kaa ye pardaa hai ki pardaa nahin karte
zaahir kaa ye pardaa hai ki pardaa nahin karte
marte hain vale un ki tamannaa nahin karte

ye baais-e-naumeedi-e-arbaab-e-hawas hai ae ae ae ae
ye baais-e-naumeedi-e-arbaab-e-hawas hai ae
Ghalib ko buraa kahte ho
Ghalib ko buraa kahte ho achchhaa nahin karte ae
Ghalib ko buraa kahte ho achchhaa nahin karte ae
Ghalib ko buraa kahte ho achchhaa nahin karte ae
ham rashq ko apne bhi gawaaraa nahin karte ae ae ae

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;

Song-Ye duniya banaana aur banaake phir chalaana (Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan)(1963) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Pt Shivram

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ye duniya banaana
aur banaa ke phir chalaana
bas usi kaa kaam hai
badaa zordaar us ka intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast us ka intzaam hai
raat ko hi raat
parbhaat ko parbhaat
shaam hi ko shaam hai
badaa zordaar uska intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast uska intzaam hai
ye duniya banaana
aur banaa ke phir chalaana
bas usi ka kaam hai
badaa zordaar uska intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast uska intzaam hai

jal pe hai thhal aur thhal pe aasmaan hai
phir bhi ek dooje pe na bojh ke samaan hai
jal pe hai thhal aur thhal pe aasmaan hai
phir bhi ek dooje pe na bojh ke samaan hai
ghazab ka ye jahaan hai
bin khambe ka makaan hai ae
ghazab ka ye jahaan hai
bin khambe ka makaan hai
jahaan ka ek ek kan us ka ghulaam hai
badaa zordaar uska intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast uska intzaam hai
ye duniya banaana
aur banaa ke phir chalaana
bas usi kaa kaam hai
badaa zordaar us ka intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast us ka intzaam hai

surya chandra taare apne dharm se naa tal sake
insaan ki majaal kya
jo uskaa kram badal sake
surya chandra taare apne dharm se naa tal sake
insaan ki majaal kya
jo uska kram badal sake
ik phool bhi khiley nahin ik patta bhi hiley nahin
ik phool bhi khiley nahin ik patta bhi hiley nahin
saare jahaan ki uske haath mein lagaam hai
badaa zordaar uska intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast uska intzaam hai
ye duniya banaana
aur banaa ke phir chalaana
bas usi ka kaam hai
badaa zordaar us ka intzaam hai
ho o badaa zabardast us ka intzaam hai

samadarshi kehlaane waale
pita ka sar jhukta hai
agar mere chhoone se jo bhagwan ka rath rukta hai
sansaar ke rath ko chalaane waalaa
hamko chhale nahin…een
woh achhooth hamko samjhen to
rath ye chaley nahin…een
woh achhooth hamko samjhen to
rath ye chaley nahin…een
woh achhooth hamko samjhen to
rath ye chaley nahin…een…een

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
———————————————-
ये दुनिया बनाना
और बनाके फिर चलाना
बस उसी का काम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है
रात को ही रात
प्रभात को प्रभात
शाम ही को शाम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है
ये दुनिया बनाना
और बनाके फिर चलाना
बस उसी का काम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है

जल पे है थल और थल पे आसमान है
फिर भी एक दूजे पे न बोझ के सामान है
जल पे है थल और थल पे आसमान है
फिर भी एक दूजे पे न बोझ के सामान है
ग़ज़ब का ये जहान है
बिन खम्बे का मकान है ए
ग़ज़ब का ये जहान है
बिन खम्बे का मकान है ए
जहाँ का एक एक कण उस का ग़ुलाम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है
ये दुनिया बनाना
और बनाके फिर चलाना
बस उसी का काम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है

सूर्य चन्द्र तारे अपने धर्म से ना टल सके
इंसान की मजाल क्या
जो उसका क्रम बदल सके
सूर्य चन्द्र तारे अपने धर्म से ना टल सके
इंसान की मजाल क्या
जो उसका क्रम बदल सके
इक फूल भी खिले नहीं इक पत्ता भी हिले नहीं
इक फूल भी खिले नहीं इक पत्ता भी हिले नहीं
सारे जहाँ की उस के हाथ में लगाम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है
ये दुनिया बनाना
और बनाके फिर चलाना
बस उसी का काम है
बड़ा ज़ोरदार उस का इंतज़ाम है
हो ओ बड़ा ज़बर्दस्त उस का इंतज़ाम है

समदर्शी कहलाने वाले
पिता का सर झुकता है
अगर मेरे छूने से जो भगवन का रथ रुकता है
संसार के रथ को चलाने वाला
हमको छले नहीं… ईं
वो अछूत हमको समझे तो
रथ ये चले नहीं… ईं

वो अछूत हमको समझे तो
रथ ये चले नहीं… ईं

वो अछूत हमको समझे तो
रथ ये चले नहीं… ईं
