This is the 13700th post for the blog and 1000th post as a lyricist for Rajinder Krishan

Century posts in this blog are quite frequent. There have been 136 such centuries already as far songs in the blog are concerned. We also have centuries by artists (quite frequent) as well as by contributors (a bit less frequent).

Thousandth post, whether they are for the blog, or the artists or the contributors are quite rare though. There have been only 13 such occasions for the blog. Only five artists and two contributors have completed their set of thousand posts in the blog.

This post today happens to be the 137th century post of songs. It also happens to be the 1000th song of Rajinder Krishan as a lyricist in the blog. He becomes the sixth artist (after Lata, Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Majrooh Sultanpuri), and second lyricist (after Majrooh Sb) to notch up his 1000th song in the blog. Regulars may recall that the previous century milestone had doubled up as the thousandth post for Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Though Rajinder Krishan is somehow not as well known as many other of his contemporary lyricists, his contributions in enriching HFM is top notch, in quality as well as quantity. He was not just a lyricist, but also a screenplay writer and more. He was a complete package and he was a man who was much sought after for his multifarious talents. He was in fact ahead of the times he lived in.

It is customary for us to discuss the biodata of the artist, and recall some of the well known songs of the artist on such occasions. I have decided to do something additional, which may not have been done in depth before, at least online, and that is to discuss the statistics of songs penned b y Rajinder Krishan.

I have compiled a moviewise list of songs that Rajinder Krishan penned during his nearly five decades long career. He career as a lyricist began in 1947 with ‘Janta’ and ‘Zanjeer’ and his last movie as a lyricist was ‘Pati Parmeshwar’ which came in 1989 after his death. I have been able to count 243 movies for which Rajinder Krishan has penned thr lyrics. In total, he has penned just over 1500 songs in these movies. So, after this song under discussion, we will have just over 500 of his songs left to be discussed. In other words, we have already covered 2/3 rd of the songs that Rajinder Krishan has penned in HFM.

When I analysed the list of music directors that Rajinder Krishan had worked with, I found that he has worked with just under 40 music directors. He worked with Madan Mohan in 36 movies where he wrote 280 songs. 25 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog. He collaborated eith C Ramchandra in 32 movies and 279 songs. I find that “only” 9 of these movies are YIPPEED in the blog. So lots of C Ramchandra movies where he collaborated with Rajinder Krishan are yet to be YIPPEED in the blog.

One can see that more than one third of Rajinder Krishan songs were with just two music directors. Rajinder Krishan also collaborated in more that 100 songs each with Ravi (135 songs in 20 movies), Kalyanji Anandji (118 songs in 23 movies), Hemant Kumar (111 songs in 13 movies) and Chitragupta (102 songs in 13 movies).

So we see that he has penned two thirds of his output, viz. 1026 songs in 137 movies with just six music directors.

Then there are seven music directors who collaborated with Rajinder Krishan for songs whose number range between 20 to 99. Rajinder Krishan penned 324 songs for these 7 music directors. They were Laxmikant Pyarelal (96 songs in 18 movies), Shankar Jaikishan (62 songs in 16 movies), S D Burman (43 songs in 5 movies), Husnlal Bhagatram (40 songs in 8 movies), R D Burman (32 songs in 5 movies), Shyam Sundar (28 songs in 4 movies) and Roshan (23 songs in 3 movies).

There were eight music directors whose collaboration with Rajinder Krishan yielded between 10 to 20 songs each, and their total adds up to 125 songs from 23 movies. They are Anil Biswas (19 songs from 5 movies), Hansraj Bahl (18 songs from 4 movies), Iqbal Qureshi (18 songs from two movies), Bulo C Rani (17 songs from 3 movies), N Datta (13 songs from 2 movies), Sajjad Hussain (11 songs from two movies) and Usha Khanna (11 songs from 2 movies).

Then there were 15 more music directors whose collaboration with Rajinder Krishan led to less that ten songs each. These songs add up to just over 60 songs. These music directors are Rajesh Roshan, Anand Milind, Krishan Dayal, Dhaniram, Pt Lachchiram, Anu Malik, Sonik Omi, Ghanshyam, K Datta, Jaidev, Gyan Dutt, Pankaj Mullick, Harishchandra Bali, Shiv Hari and S Mohinder.

So overall, Rajinder Krishan penned just over 1500 songs during his career in just under 250 movies. 104 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog, so we now only need to look at the remaining 140 odd movies for the remaining 500 odd Rajinder Krishan songs.

Rajinder Krishan was not just a lyricist, though. He was a screenplay writer and story writer as well. Then he was something more that that but Film Industry does have any designation for those activities.

It is like this. South Indian producers made some South Indian movies that were big hits among their target audiences. They planned to enter into the territory of Hindi movie audiences, remaking their hit movies into Hindi. It is obvious that the South Indian movies needed to be modified suitably to cater to the pan Indian tastes of Hindi movie audiences. How to do that ?

They looked for people in Hindi movie industry who would be receptive to their ideas. That is where Rajinder Krishan came in. As someone who was far ahead of the times, Rajinder Krishan was a polyglot and he had taught himself Tamil. So south Indian film makers, especially the makers of AVM found it extremely convenient to deal with him. Rajinder Krishan would watch the Tamil original, make suitable changes in the story line for its Hindi remake, and then write the Hindi screenplay. And then he would write the songs for the Hindi version as well. What more did the South Indian makers need ? They needed disciplined actors and music directors of Hindi movies who could work within tight time frame, unlike what was the norm in Bombay Film Industry. That is how disciplined actors like Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar etc and disciplined music directors like C Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Chitragupta and Ravi became the favourites of South Indian movie makers making Hindi remakes of their South Indian movies. And all these movies would have lyrics by Rajinder Krishan most of the time.

As mentioned above, bulk of Rajinder Krishan songs have been penned for the above mentioned music directors. So it can be concluded accurately that Rajinder Krishan and these music directors gave a sizeable part of their output in movies that were remakes of South Indian movies. So it can also be concluded that they in general and Rajinder Krishan in particular contributed a lot in making South Indian remakes of Hindi movies acceptable to Hindi movie audience.

The first South Indian Hindi movie that Rajinder Krishan was associated with was AVM’s ‘Bahaar’ (1951). A remake of blockbuster Tamil movie ‘Vazhkai’ (1949), its Hindi remake was overseen by Rajinder Krishan who wrote the screenplay of ‘Bahaar’ (1951) and penned songs that were suitably tailored for Hindi audience. The songs, composed by SD Burman were huge hits as music lovers are already aware.

The other thing that I find impressive about Rajinder Krishan is that he was comfortable and competent penning songs for each and every genre that Hindi movies could come up with. Just think of the genres and the kinds of songs that Rajinder Krishan could come up with:

Dev Anand style introduction song Hamaara naam banarasi baabu (Banarasi Babu)

The above is just a sample of what Rajinder Krishan has penned in HFM. So many genre of songs. So many great songs that are iconic/ evergreen/ memorable. Some of them have even defined/ determined/changed the course of HFM.

Rajinder Krishan did not need too much time to come up with his songs. Many of his songs were written in a matter of minutes. it is something that he shared with C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan, who too couldi come up with their tunes in double quick times. No wonder then that they were able to stick to tight schedules that south Indian film makers often demanded.

After twitter like articles that I normally write these days, people may find this article rather wikipedean in comparison. Let me assure my readers that this article gives far more details about Rajinder Krishan’s songs than what the wikipedia page on Rajinder Krishan provides. 🙂

For the 1000th song of Rajinder Krishan, I have picked a rare gem from a rare movie. No, it is not a movie from 1940s or 1950s. Rather this movie is from 1973, which is a “recent” year by the standards of this blog. I was very much into HFM in 1973 but even I had never heard this song at that time. The movie is called ‘Kunwara Badan’ (1973). I had vaguely heard the title of this movie but that was all.

On checkingup in HFGK, I find that this movie was directed by Vimal Tiwari for Tulsi Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rakesh Pandey, Madhu Chanda, Suresh Chatwal, Aashoo, Paintal, Helen, Sudhir Desai, Mushtaq Merchant, Surendranath, Aparna Chaudhary, Baby Vinaya, Pushpa Ben, Yagnik, Ambalal Patel, Narsibhai Patel, Devyani Desai, Jagdish Patel Nishaad Pandya, Baby Shahnaz, Sulekha Patel, nalini Pandya, Vandana Mehta, Maya Pandya, Iva Maria etc in it.

In brief, this movie was a low budget movie containing small time actors who were newcomers. With no saleable actors, this movie suffered the usual fate of such movies and it flopped badly. so much so that someone like me never got to hear any songs from this movie till now.

This movie has four songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. It is picturised as a car song on Rakesh Pandey who is seen driving the car along famous landmarks in DelhiVadodara.

This song is penned by Rajinder Krishan, and this song is fitting 1000th song for him in the blog. The music is composed by someone called Ghanshyam. Little is known about him. He makes his debut in the blog as a music director with this song. And what a smashing debut it is.

If you listens to this song, you will find this song growing up on you. That is what has happened to me now that I have heard this song a few times.

The audio and video versions are three stanzaes each, but the final stanzas differ. So overall this song has four stanzas, but one needs to listen to both versions of the song to get to the fourth stanza.

Like always, I take this opportunity to thank one and all. It is the encouragement and support of all our visitors, well wishers and contributors that we keep coming up with “new” songs daily and we keep reaching newer milestones every now and them.

This is the 13700th song for the blog and 1000th song for Rajinder Krishan. We have many more centuries and more waiting in the wings. So I can assure everyone that our best in this ongoing journey is yet to come.

For now, let us enjoy this forgotten gem from 1970s.

Song-Kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden (Kunwaara Badan)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ghanshyam

Lyrics

(Based on Audio Version)

kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

ye raahen
jahaan se main guzra hoon kitni baar
hawaayen fizaayen
ke jin mein basa hai pyaar
jaane pehchaane in raahon ki dhool
dhool aisi dhool jo khilaaye sada phool
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

wo dekho
udhar se chali aa rahi hai ik haseena
hai shokhi kuchh aisi
ki phoolon ko aaya paseena
doobi huyi mastiyon mein morni si chaal
chaal aisi chaal
jo udaati hai gulaal
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

(Different 2nd Stanza from Video Version)
ye chehre ye aankhen
ye aankhon se jhaankti khushi
nigaahen nigaahon mein dil ki hai baat chhupi chhupi
main jaanta hoon jaanta hoon inki zubaan
ye poochhti hain
chhod ke gaye the kahaan
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuch bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai phir se wahi bahaar
laut aayi hai phir se wahi bahaar
la la la la
lalla la lallaa la la

(ऑडियो संस्करण से)
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

ये राहें
जहां से मैं गुज़रा हूँ कितनी बार
हवाएं फिजाएं
के जिनमें बसा है प्यार
जाने पहचाने इन राहों कि धूल
धूल ऐसी धूल  जो खिलाये सदा फूल
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

वो देखो
उधर से चली आ रही है इक हसीना
है शोखी कुछ ऐसी
कि फूलों को आया पसीना
डूबी हुयी मस्तियों में मोरनी सी चाल
चाल ऐसी चाल
जो उड़ाती है गुलाल
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

(भिन्न दूसरा अंतरा विडियो संस्करण से)
ये चेहरे ये आँखें
ये आँखों से झांकती ख़ुशी
निगाहें
निगाहों में दिल कि है बात छुपी छुपी
मैं जानता हूँ जानता हूँ इनकी ज़ुबां
ये पूछती हैं छोड़ के गए थे कहाँ
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

The small girl in the song with this post celebrates her 52nd birthday today—unbelievable she is so young. The birthday list on our blog says she is 1965 born, also the Filmfare awards list page says she was all of 15 when in 1980 she won the Best Supporting Actress award for her depiction of a rape victim (in ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’). She seems to have been around forever. I just do not want to use the phrase ‘past her prime.’ Come to think of it she is younger to the Khans who are ruling the industry these days.

Born as the eldest child to Pandarinath Kolhapure – a cousin of the Mangeshkars – she was cast as a child actor for the first time in Dev Anand’s ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’ in 1975. From there she has not looked back and worked with all the three pillars of Bollywood- with Dev Anand in ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’, Raj Kapoor cast her in ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (1978) and then later in ‘Prem Rog’ (1982), and Dilip Kumar was her co-star in ‘Vidhaata’ (1982). Added to that her filmography shows that there was hardly any big star who has not acted with her; the sole exception being Amitabh Bachchan. She was romantically paired opposite Rajesh Khanna and Jeetendra. She got a best supporting actress for her performance in B.R.Chopra’s ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’. That same year saw her in her first heroine role in ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaana Hai’ opposite to Rishi Kapoor. But her best actress award was for Raj Kapoor’s ‘Prem Rog’. She also got a special award for ‘Ahista Ahista’ (1981).  She took a break after marrying Tutu (Pradeep) Sharma in 1989 and made a comeback in a Marathi film “Chimani Pakhar” in 2003. Last I remember seeing her in a serial on Sony TV with her friend Poonam Dhillon as costar.

Here is wishing this multi-talented, cute, sweet, baby-faced actor a Very Happy Birthday. This song, from the 1978 film ‘Saajan Bina Suhaagan’, is filmed on Nutan, Radha Bartake, Arati Chopra and Padmini Kolhapure – today’s birthday gal. It is written by Indivar, and Usha Khanna is the music director. The film is produced by Sawan Kumar Tak. The playback singers are Arati Mukherjee, Chandrani Mukherjee and ShivangiKolhapure.

Today, 25th of October 2017, is the thirty seventh ‘remembrance anniversary’ of the great ‘poet-lyricist’ Sahir Ludhianvi. He passed away this day in 1980 leaving behind the great legacy of his poems and leaving behind his immortal poetry which people are still enjoying, discussing, and even doing research on it and writing about his life and his poetry. And like me there will be many who will agree that Sahir and his poetry will be discussed as long as Hindi Cinema and HFM exists and his poetry will be discussed so long as humanity and human relations, emotions exists.

On this occasion, today we will listen to this beautiful prayer song from the 1974 movie ‘Mehmaan’ penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. The film was directed by KP Atma for Shatrujit Films, Bombay, and was produced by Shatrujit Paul. It had Biswajeet, Rekha, Anwar Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Sulochana, Mukri, Bhalla, Lata Sinha, Azad, Gopal Sehgal, Indira Bansal, Mona, Brahm Bharadwaj, Helen, Pratima Devi, Thakurdas, and new discovery Joginder. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Shatrujit Paul. Its dialogues were written by Rahi Masoom Raza. Editing for this movie was done by Shivaji Avdhoot. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.02.1974.

The movie had total six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi, and composed by Ravi. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog here – Meri Chaahat Rahegi Hamesha Jawaan and Uff Ye Jawaani Ye Adaa. Asha Bhonsle, Deedar Singh Pardesi, Mahendra Kapoor, Meenu Puroshottam and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog, and it is sung by Deedar Singh Pardesi, Meenu Puroshottam and Mahendra Kapoor.

In one of my earlier post on the blog here I have discussed in detail about and listed some of the famous and immortal ‘bhajans’ written by Sahir Ludhianvi for Hindi movies. I have also mentioned in the same post that for me Sahir was a ‘truly secular’ individual apart from a humanitarian and motivational philosopher. Why I am insisting this here again can well be understood from the following lines in today’s song and how relevant they fit into in our prevailing socio-political condition,

bhale karam kar duniyaa mein
ye karam hai nek kamaai
in karmon mein chhupi hai
saare dharmon ki sachchaai
jisne achhe karam kiye
har dharm ki laaj nibhaai
dharm ki laaj nibhaai

For that matter the following lines from the song “Hum Ne Suna Tha Ik Hai Bharat” also speaks a lot about ‘karm’ (our deeds) and who else other than Sahir can come up with such straight forward hard-hitting words.

kuchh insaan brahman kyun hain
kuchh insaan harijan kyun hain
ek ki itni izzat kyun hai
ek ki itni zillat kyun hai
dhan aur gyaan ko
taaqat walon ne apni jaageer kahaa
mehnat aur ghulaami ko
kamzoron ki taqdeer kahaa
insaanon ka yeh batwaara
vehshat aur jahaalat hai

jo nafrat ki shiksha de
wo dharma nahin hai la’anat hai
janam se koyi neech nahin hai
janam se koyi mahaan nahin
karam se badh kar kisi manushya ki
koyi bhi pehchaan nahin

This song with its link was in circulation on social media and people who might not have been aware of this song earlier or may be some people who found it worthy shared it with a surprise – “Where was this song all this while…”, with a request that – “The minimum we can do is spread the message of love and harmony amongst our countrymen. Hope the message through this beautiful song enrich our hearts and souls…”

Much more has already been written about Sahir Ludhianvi and a lot more will surely be there in future. As I said above, this good work, this discussion about his poetry and his thoughts for the humanity, will live on and on. . .

Coming to the song being posted today. From the video uploaded recently, we can identify Abhi Bhattacharya, Vishwajit, Sulochana, Rekha, Manmohan Krishna, Mukri and others in the picturization of this song. I have not watched this movie and for those interested to watch it, it is now available on YT and from some of the comments on this link about the movie I can guess that the movie was not liked by many.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song – Ram Rahim Krishn Kareem


Song – Ram Raheem Krishn Kareem, Yeshu Masih Aur Ibrahim (Mehmaan) (1974) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Minu Purushottam, Deedar Singh, Lyrics – Sahir Ludhianvi, MD – Ravi

I am trying to wish two people on their birthday with this one post.

Yesterday, 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar Singh of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

He was born in Hyderabad in 1922 which means he would have been 95. He started his career with a theatre group before shifting to Prithvi Theatre. That is where he learnt to play the Tabla, and several other instruments like the Sitar, Accordion and Piano. Besides his work at Prithvi he also started working as assistant to Husnlal Bhagatram and nurtured ambitionof becoming an independent music director.He met a struggling Jaikishan Panchal, a harmonium player, outside the office of a Gujarati film director and instantly offered him a job at Prithvi without even consulting Prithviraj Kapoor. But Prithviraj honoured Shankar’s word and appointed Jaikishan as the Harmonium player of Prithvi Theatre.

It was here that they got to know Raj Kapoor and when Raj Kapoor debuted as director in 1948 with “Aag”. Ram Ganguly was the music director and Shankar and Jaikishan were the assistants. For RK’s “Barsaat”. Raj Kapoor took Shankar as the music director who insisted that on taking Jaikishan as partner and history was made. Their filmography contains a wide range of music that made Bollywood history. It has music of all genres. And they continued as a team till the untimely death of Jaikishan in 1971. But even after 1971 all the music composed by Shankar was credited to the duo. But today’s song is from a 1975 film so definitely it has to be a Shankar creation.

The second person who is being wished with this song is my childhood favourite. She is another of the persons whose appearance on the small screen makes me stop in my tracks/ chores even today. I was floored by her beauty from the first time I set my eyes on her in 1971/72. And am amazed at how she has managed to maintain herself even today as turns 69 today- cannot believe she is 69!!! Does not look it at all!!! Probably it is her constant riyaaz of dance- she is a classical dancer- that is the secret behind her looks.

She has been the darling of the audiences from her first Bollywood debut opposite Raj Kapoor in 1968. (she first faced the camera at 15 for Tamil film “Ithu Sathiyam” as a dancer and supporting actress). Now I know all the followers of this blog have understood that I am talking of my Basanti alias Hema Malini. And just so that this post doesn’t become very long I am not going to list all of my favourite Hema Malini films here. Neither am I going to list all her co-stars here. Nor am I giving a list of her songs which have been playing inside my head since morning. 😉

Let us get to the song straight away. It is from Sohanlal Kanwar’s “Sanyasi” (1975). The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Vithalbhai Patel.

A strange coincidence the two people whose birthday is being celebrated with this song -both had their Bollywood debut with Raj Kapoor.

Hullo to Atuldom

‘Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki’ is a movie released in 1980. It was directed by Hiren Nag and produced by Ramraj Nahata. It had a star cast of Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Raj Kiran, Rameshwari, Kaajal Kiran, Shashikala, Dina Pathak, Madan Puri etc. Songs were written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have never seen the movie and so I have no idea what it was all about.

But one song from that movie has stayed in my memory. The playback for that song is by Manna Dey with Dilraj Kaur. What has stuck with me since I saw it on Doordarshan’s Chaayageet/Chitrahaar is the sight of Ashok Kumar and Shashikala living it up at a disco.

That was the period when Ashok Kumar used play a lovable old man who doesn’t mind enjoying himself occasionally with wine, women etc. All these would many-a-times be just to irritate a younger character or bring a wayward youngster to toe his line. But all his roles were very cute. Very often his partner would be the other lovable old man Pran, in addition he used to team up with Utpal Dutt, AK Hangal, and sometimes his team mate would be any actress with whom he has paired romantically in his younger days. Like in today’s song he is merrily dancing with Shashikala who herself was a dancing star in her younger days. Before this the two had appeared in ‘Khubsoorat’ as Sasur and Bahu. And yes, that film also is from 1980. 🙂 In this film, we see  Shashikala do a kathak piece as Dada Moni plays the tabla. I also remember Shashikala with Ashok Kumar in BR Chopra’s ‘Gumraah’ (1963) too.

I am sure many of the regular followers of this blog will remember that today is Dada Moni’s birth anniversary. He would have been 106. Let us remember him with this lively party song.

The uncertainties of life, in some way, always gives us happy as well as sad moments and surprises as well. The journey of life keeps on going on and on still, like that only. . . We never know how things are going to happen around us and what ‘life’ has there in store for us with every new day coming.

***

When it was decided that I will have to go abroad for a job opportunity there, I was at Nagpur and my daughters were staying at Anand Gujarat for their studies. So, it was obvious that my wife will also shift to Anand with my daughters. Most of our relatives, from my side and my wife’s side were already in Nagpur, except that my mother is staying at Parli Vaijnath (Marathwada-Maharashtra) with one of my younger brother. And my youngest brother (we are three) is staying at Mundra Kachchh-Gujarat.

So, it was natural for me to try to meet all of them before I take up my journey abroad. Before leaving Nagpur I and my wife travelled to Parli Vaijnath to seek blessings of my Mother and Mother Goddess Tulja Bhawani at Tuljapur. After coming back, we meet my paternal relatives and my wife’s paternal relatives. Then we took journey from Nagpur to Anand, again by car (this time with a driver) en route to Akola – my birthplace – and our ancestral house there, where one of my Uncle and my Buaa ji were staying.

I thought it was all happening as ordained by God that I visit Akola and stay there one night before taking on this new journey in my life. That way I thought I will have blessings of my Grand Father and Grand Mother who had already left many years before for their heavenly abode. Well, I met my cousins and Buaa ji at Akola, as my Uncle there had already left for Nagpur for some urgent work.

***

Everything went well and I too settled down in Kenya for my job and soon after almost four and half months passed on peacefully it was time for me to visit home on account my first leave to attend the Ganpati Festival at home. While everything was planned in advance and it was also finalised that this time me and my family can only visit Mundra-Kachchh (our home, presently occupied by tenants) and finish the bank related works – change in address there etc. and after that may be a single day visit to Vadodara to meet few of known friends and well-wishers and if possible a visit to one of the ashram near Rajpipla where we have been visiting since 2007.

Of course, there was a lot ‘shopping’ also to be done for me, as well as for my fellow Indian friends staying with me in Nairobi. But then there is one more factor and that is the uncertainties of life. We never know what is going to happen next.

There was an unfortunate development between these days before my travel. My Uncle staying at Nagpur had to be admitted to Hospital initially for a seemingly mild heart attack which he survived and an operation was suggested to remove some blockages in veins. However, on detailed examination it was diagnosed that he will not be able to face the operation as his heart was ‘weak’ not in good health to cope up with the operation that was required.

He was in hospital for almost twenty days and he recovered too, but when he was about to be discharged he got another attack. And then slowly one by one his organs started failing. With only the heart working, now it was almost left to God. As days passed and the Ganpati festival was approaching all family members and relatives where worrying about that if we will be able to bring the God Ganpati to our home or not?

***

I reached Anand on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi on 25th August. It was already noon by then and immediately after reaching home we started the preparations for ‘Ganpati Sthapna’. My daughters were already in town to bring the Ganpati idol to our home. It was their turn this time to decide and bring the idol to home. The first day of Ganpati festival passed well, still all family members and relatives worrying about the deteriorating health condition of my Uncle admitted in the hospital.

Having settled at home after a gap of almost five months and have taken a rest after being in travel for almost nineteen hours, the next day was still in an anxiety mood for me. I was eager to take on the planned activities soon. As we finished the evening ‘aarti’ on the second day and I was just savouring the Prasad after performing prayers, the looming fear stroked and the news came of my Uncle passing away at Nagpur.

 

***

Why I am writing this post here is that other than being my Uncle and always friendly with me, he was a crazy music lover. While I do remember watching some movies with him (and I have mentioned that in one of my posts on the blog), there are some vague memories too of my childhood where I used to visit my grandparents in the summer vacations and where I can meet my uncles and watch movies. I also remember attending his marriage when I was in high school. As I grew up, there were always occasions of a family get together where we meet. Then he also got transferred to the same place my parents shifted i.e. Parli Vaijnath. When I got married in 1994 he was there actively taking part in all ceremonies.

Whenever I visited him music was an integral part of discussions and I used to check which new albums he has got in his collection. After I started working and started my own collection the discussions thereafter were mainly on which rare song/album he got in his collection and which one I was missing? He was a great fan of Rajendra Kumar (like my other uncles and aunts and my grandmother) but he was also a fan of Jeetendra. He liked Jeetendra’s musical hits very much. After his retirement he was really enjoying very much downloading songs from ‘Youtube’ and other sources.

When I told him about our blog and my contributions he was visiting the blog regularly, though he may not have commented on any posts. He had settled in Nagpur after retirement and when I shifted to Nagpur in 2015 I stayed with him before shifting my household from Guajrat. I and my wife used to visit regularly in between during our stay at Nagpur. The last time I meet him was in the morning of 9th March this year to seek his blessings.

***

Members on the ‘Atulites’ WhatsApp group may recall message of my travelling to Nagpur with my younger brother during my recent visit to India. The visit was for this purpose of meeting my aunt and cousins after the passing away of my Uncle. It was this train journey, filled with nostalgia and yet memories of the departed soul and thoughts of uncertainties of life. We could not attend his final rites given the time required to travel.

***

At Nagpur I got to know how tough it was for my uncle to be in the bed for so many days. It was not his nature. At home he was always doing some productive activity and busy in doing something or the other. When he had to spend those days in the ‘hospital’ he was always insisting to take him to home from the hospital and remove all those medical apparatuses that were attached to him for supporting his ill health. He would have never imagined this day in his life.

In the ICU he was restricted from doing many things as the discipline have to be maintained there. But how long you can keep one holding like that. One day he was found listening to songs and that too in a good volume which was enough to make the hospital staff rush to him and take away the mobile from him, to save the other patients from this musical entertainment.

Well that is one part. But, on the other part, as I was told later, it was very difficult for him to bear the pain and the difficulties in breathing. Each new day was coming to him with more pain and problems. So actually, he was requesting everybody to let him go home and rest peacefully. The problem of choked veins had not aggravated suddenly, but his came on over a period of time on account of continuous smoking (which he was advised to stop two years earlier).

***

We as a human being always enjoy, celebrate, and share happy moments with others. But nobody can share this ‘pain and sufferings’ of one who is going through it. He must have been going through this thought I guess.

Ro’oge tum to na royegi duniya
Na royegi duniya
Tere aansuon ko samajh na sakegi
Tere aansuon pe hansegi ye duniya

In today’s fast paced world, given the hard facts of life one really doesn’t gets time to stop moving. The ‘show’ needs to go on and one needs to be moving on. . . always. Even we the relatives, no doubt, some of us were there with him for all these days in his bedside in the hospital, but some of us like me were not there and could not even attend his final rites. And have to continue with our daily routine and even doing things that one should avoid doing in this period of grief.

Jagmagaate raho
Gungunaate raho
Zindagi mein sada
Muskuraate raho

Paying my tributes to him I present this song from the 1971 film ‘Kathputli’. This film was directed by Brij for the banner of ‘Dynamo International, Bombay’. The star cast includes Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Helen, Agha, Manmohan, Malika, Bhagwan, Asha Chandra, Leela Mishra, Pravin Pal, Kundan, Radheshyam, Dilip Dutt, Kumud Tripathi, Bhola, Rajrani, Ramlal, Fazlu, Naidu, Jerry, Bishan, Brij, Jalal Agha and Master Chiku. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.08.1971.

This movie has total eight songs, including one two version song. The songs are penned by Verma Malik (four songs), Indeevar (three songs), and Shadab (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi give their voices to the songs in this movie. One duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi – “Ek Baat Poochhoon” has been posted earlier on the blog (long back in 2012 😊).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Verma Malik. As mentioned above music for this song is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. I am not aware in what context this song is in the movie and I have not watched the movie too. However, this song is in my memory since I heard it on a cassette which HMV had brought as ‘A Tribute to the Legend – Kishore Kumar’ (if I am correct). This is a four-cassette set.

Whatever be the context of this song in the movie, the name of the movie does remind me of this dialogue from the movie ‘Anand’ (1970) – “. . . ham sab to rang manch ki kathputliyaan hai, jinki dor uparwaale ke haath mein bandhi huyi hai, kaun kab kaise utthega, ye koi nahin bataa sakta. . .  ha ha ha’

🙂

Enjoy the song now!!!

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्

Touch the Sky with Glory

What an appropriate motto this is, for the flying heroes of our national force that is responsible for the defense of our nation’s skies, and the keepers of our aerial security. The Indian Air Force, the aerial arm of our armed forces, celebrated its 85 anniversary yesterday – 8th October, 2017.

War is never a good thing. No one wins in a war. Everyone loses. Behind the victories claimed by the conquerors, there always are brutal losses which one does not speak of. But then, if a war is thrust upon someone, then standing up and fighting for what is right is the inevitable path to be taken.  The lines written by Kaifi Azmi in this song, express this so well,

jung rahmat hai ke laanat, ye sawaal ab na uthe
jung jab aa hi gayi sar pe to rahmat hogi

जंग रहमत है के लानत, ये सवाल अब ना उठे
जंग जब आ ही गई सर पे तो रहमत होगी

This post is a salute to the fearless warriors of our armed forces, and especially our Air Force, on this day of celebrating its 85 years of history.

The origins of the Indian Air Force are in the Royal Air Force of Great Britain. India was under the British rule in 1932, when the decision was taken to set up an auxiliary air force unit in India, under the larger umbrella of the Royal Air Force.

In 1928-29 the Government of India (under British rule) decided to induct some Indians in the Royal Air Force. The first six Indians selected to undergo two years of flying training at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell were Subroto Mukherjee, Harish Chandra Sircar, Aizad Baksh Awan, Bhupendra Singh, Amarjeet Singh and JN Tandon. After completing their training at Cranwell, the Indian pilots passed through the Army Cooperation School at Old Sarum in Wiltshire. After the completion of their training, five of these men were commissioned into service with the Royal Air Force. JN Tandon, on account of his short stature, was reverted to a logistic role, and not commissioned for flying.

On 8th October, 1932, the Indian Air Force Act was passed by the Indian Legislative Assembly, and the Indian Air Force was born. The Indian Air Force was established as an auxiliary air force of the Royal Air Force. The new force adopted the uniforms, badges, brevets and insignia of the Royal Air Force.

The first five pilots commissioned into the IAF were the same five who had been inducted into the Royal Air Force after completing their training at RAF Cranwell – Harish Chandra Sircar, Subroto Mukerjee, Bhupendra Singh, Aizad Baksh Awan and Amarjeet Singh. All of them were commissioned as Pilot Officers. Subroto Mukerjee later went on to become the IAF’s first Indian Chief of the Air Staff.

On 1 April 1933, the Indian Air Force got its first flying machines – four Westland Wapiti biplanes. The IAF commissioned its first squadron, No. 1 Squadron, at Karachi (now in Pakistan) with five Indian pilots listed above. The Indian pilots were led by RAF Commanding officer Flight Lieutenant (later Air Vice Marshal) Cecil Bouchier.

Subsequent batches inducted before World War II included Aspy Engineer, KK Majumdar, Narendra, Daljit Singh, Henry Runganadhan, RHD Singh, Baba Mehar Singh, SN Goyal, Prithpal Singh and Arjan Singh. Here is another name that is very familiar to all – Arjan Singh went on to become the first and only Air Chief designated as the Marshal of the Air Force (MAF). He is the only five star officer in the history of our Air Force. MAF Arjan Singh recently passed away (16th September, 2017) in Delhi, at the age of 98.

In recognition of the services rendered by the IAF during the World War II, King George VI conferred the prefix “Royal” in 1945. Thereafter the IAF was referred to as Royal Indian Air Force. In 1947, when the British left the Indian sub-continent, and the partition of this country happened the military forces were also partitioned. On 15th August, 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force gave up 3 divisions which were geographically based in the newly formed territories of Pakistan, and the Royal Pakistan Air Force was born.

Although the nation supposedly attained independence on 15th Aug, 1947, it continued to be a Dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations, which means that we as a nation, were actually still paying our allegiance to the British Crown. In January 1950, when India adopted their own Constitution, and became a republic, the prefix “Royal” was dropped and the force became truly the Indian Air Force. However, the person at the head of the Air Force continued to be a non-Indian till 1954. As per seniority and age, the Air Force continued with three more Air Chief Marshals from 1947 to 1954. In 1954, the last of the Birtish chiefs superannuated from the top position, and the mantle of the top official came to Air Marshal Subroto Mukherjee, the first Indian head of the Indian Air Force.

The IAF has seen serious action in the four wars that have been fought with Pakistan (1948, 1965, 1971 and 1999). The force was not utilized during the 1962 conflict with China, despite being the superior air power in the region at that time. China’s forays into the Himalayan regions were recent at that time and their air force did not have the reach to come up to the Indo-China borders. A lack of political will and vision, one may say, and the IAF was utilized only for supplying the front lines.

Although a child (in single digits) at that time, my memories of the 1965 war are still quite detailed. The Pakistan Air Force was supposedly the superior force, equipped with American supplied F-86 Sabre jets, with the Indian Air Force flying the comparatively puny Gnat and Mystere aircrafts. But the valor and the heroism of the Indian pilots is now the stuff of a very proud history. The supposedly puny Gnat fighter planes were responsible for downing 6 Sabre jets, and earned the nickname of ‘Sabre Slayers’. Names like Sqadron Leader Keelor (actually two brother flyers – Trevor and Denzill) and Flying Officer Nebb, became household heroes, as the news poured in every day about the victories of the Indian Air Force.

The force was led by Air Marshal Arjan Singh during this period of conflict. Retired and past officers of the Air Force remember him dearly as a valiant leader who led from the front. While the conflict was in progress, the Air Marshal refused to stay put in Delhi, and was constantly visiting the front line airfields, meeting his officers and pilots, each one of them personally. So many of his people have consistently mentioned his reaching out to his men, how he would remember the names of each one of them, how he would be interested in knowing the details of their exploits in the air. And not just that, he reached out personally to the families of the heroes, and taking care to connect with the widowed wives and children of the flyers who laid down their lives in action.

He put the interest and safety of his airmen before his own. Close friend and former Air Chief Marshal NC Suri narrates an episode that underlines this. The Canberra bomber planes, one of the planes with the IAF, had a peculiar design. The pilot’s seat was designed as an ejection seat (that allows the pilot to eject automatically from the aircraft, in case of an emergency). However, the navigator seat was not, and the navigator, in the time of an emergency, had to physically disengage himself from the seat, break open some window and jump out of the aircraft. Whenever Arjan Singh flew a Canberra, he would refuse to take out the safety pin of the pilot seat’s ejection mechanism, rendering it ineffective. In other words, he was also incapable of ejecting from the aircraft, if an emergency arose. ACM NC Suri adds “So here is a man who felt that his navigator was equally important to him, which was very remarkable.”.

Yes, ‘Touch the Sky with Glory’, a motto that MAF Arjan Singh believed in and also lived by. The saga of our nation’s Air Force is full of numerous such people and their acts of valor and heroism.

As a salute to the brave airmen of our Air Force, I present this rousing song of bravery and leadership, from the 1973 film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. Folks will remember this film one of the very few films made on the theme of Indian Air Force, its airmen and their exploits and triumphs. The time frame it was released indicates that it covered the events of the then recent past, i.e. the 1971 war with Pakistan.

The song itself needs no introduction – it has been one of the most popular patriotic songs to emerge from Hindi films. The words are from the pen of Kaifi Azmi, and the rousing marching music comes from the baton of Madan Mohan. The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Manna Dey. In the film, this song appears at 3 places. In the beginning when the titles start to roll, somewhat later once again when the war with the enemy is in full swing, and at the end, as the film comes to a close. Interestingly enough, the titles of the film do no start till almost twelve and a half minutes into the film. (So this song cannot be categorized as the film opening song.)

We see a few characters in the video clip, especially in the first part. There is Rajkumar, Chetan Anand, Balraj Sahni, Veena, Vijay Anand, Priya Rajvansh, Parikshit Sahni etc. I have edited to present all the three parts of this song as a single clip. I have retained a few seconds of the scene just prior to the start of the first part – I really like the dialogue rendered by Rajkumar, just as the song starts.

So here is a salute and a tribute – to the daring ‘jaanbaaz’ flyers and the brave ground and support staff, that man this valiant Air Force – the safe keepers of the Indian airspace.

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्
Jai Hind.

[Ed Note: This song is the fourth and final one from this film to be posted on our blog. With this post, the film ‘Hindustan Ki Qasam’ joins the list of films with all songs posted.]

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 56 #
———————————————–—————-

Recently the blog had been going slow as both our bosses were occupied by some work or the other, blog related, as well as occupational and personal. 🙂  Taking a clue from the number of posts on the blog and later on clarified by Atul ji himself (about the housekeeping of the blog), I had also almost stopped sending mails for new contributions, reminder for old ones and others.

Now, few days back I got into touch with Atul ji to check if it is convenient now for him to review some posts. He immediately advised me that ‘I should do that’. Now, where to start and with which song/post? Was the big question. It always happens when I have to resume something on the blog after a gap. Though I may not be sending some contributions but the thought process and thinking of new posts/topics is always going in the mind. It becomes very difficult when we already have many many songs yet to be posted on the blog even if we consider them for the period 1930 to 1980s.

Given that the ‘Navratri’ festival is in progress, I decided to resume sharing with this song (pending for long, since 2013 🙂 ). It is a ‘Maata Bhajan’. It is from the 1974 movie ‘Aalingan’, sung by Mahendra Kapoor.

‘Alingan’ (alias ‘The Embrace’) is directed by CL Dheer for ‘Jasmine Films, Bombay’. It is produced by PP Javeri. The star cast of this ‘social’ movie incudes Romesh Sharma, Zahira, Suresh Chatwal, Anjana, Achala Sachdev, Nitin Sethi, Ashoo, Raji Sethi, Satyen Kappu, Chanda, Poonam, Vinod Sharma, Raj Verma, Nagar, Cando, Jugnu and Pompy.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Shashi Bhushan, and the dialogues were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Ramesh Ahluwalia had done the editing for this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.03.1974.

The movie has total five songs (including the today’s two part song), four written by Jan Nisar Akhtar, and one by Naqsh Lyallpuri. As per HFGK Vol-V, the music for this movie was composed by Jaidev and Sapan Jagmohan. Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie. As per HFGK the song being presented today is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Out of the five songs of this movie three songs have been posted on the blog so far. Today’s song is fourth song of this movie ‘Aaglingan’ to appear on the blog. When I initially shared this song in 2013 there was only one version (or part) of this song that I could locate at that time. Later after a gap of two years i.e. in 2015 I became aware of a second part of this song (which in the movie is an extension of the first part), having an unknown male voice along with Mahendra Kapoor who is main singer of the song. However HFGK Vol V does not mention this song in two parts and the name of the other singer (I guess it is Narendra Chanchal).

Now since the movie is available online I decided to watch it, because the link of the second part that I found in 2015 had become obsolete now and was not available. Though audio for both the parts was now available. I must say that the movie is interesting and one can watch it once. It did have its own highs and lows, but also touches some relevant issues like the individuals sacrificing their lives for the country and families serving the armed forces and where we have families whose generation after generation have been serving the armed forces and sacrificing their lives fighting wars.

Now as per the titles of this movie credits for ‘Music’ are to Jaidev only. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this.

So far we have three songs from this movie already posted on the blog. These are,

Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Taqaaza Na Kiya
I am aware of this song since late eighties as it is in one of the compilation cassette of Manna Dey songs in my collection.

Hamaare Dil Ko Tum Ne Dil Bana Diya
In the above post Atul ji have mentioned the name of both Jaidev and Sapan Jagmohan, which I am sure he has taken from the information given in HFGK.

And, “Is Tarah Jaao Nahin

Coming back to the today’s song, a Goddess Durga bhajan, it happens at the end of the movie where the hero’s mother Achala Sachdev has organized a ‘Durga Pooja’ as our hero and heroine are getting marry. But one can see in the video of this song that the heroine has some different thoughts in her mind and she decides to run away from the marriage (and commit suicide). However the hero saves her and then it is there that the heroine explains the trauma she had gone through. And this brings us to the climax of the movie where the hero of the movie Romesh Sharma, heroine Zahira and Zahira’s mother (I am unable to identify the actress) get rid of Zahira’s step father, who is the villain in this movie. Again I am forgetting this actor’s name who I remember to have watched in many movies of those years.

All this happens while the pooja ceremonies are still in progress, and the ‘devotees’ are still praising the Goddess and singing this bhajan. As the hero and heroine happily join the ‘pooja’ after the villain’s end, we get to the extended version of this song which is part two of this song. I am also unable to identify the actor lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and I would request knowledgeable readers to identify this actor please.

Let us now listen to this beautiful composition,

mere dukhde door karo maa aa

jeene ka saahas do maa
jeene ki shakti do

mere saare kashta haro maa
meri vipadaa door karo o

mere dukhde door karo maa
mere sankat door karo 0

Hullo to all in Atuldom
