————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day i.e., 17th September ’2012 the following songs were posted on the blog.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks

Jahaan pe sawera ho basera wahin hai Baseraa(1981) 1 of 6 songs posted

From the above table we can see that ten years back ‘this day’ was a great day for the blog as a ‘whopping’ nine songs were posted on that day.

From the above nine movies represented on the blog on that day five movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, we have the following four movies remaining where we can discuss song/s from this movie on the blog today.

– ‘Ghar Ka Chiraag-1967’
– ‘Chhotaa Baap – 1977’
– ‘Baseraa-1981’
– ‘Sapnay-1997’

I am presenting a song from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Baseraa’. One well known song from this movie have already been posted on the blog.

“Basera” was a Rose Movies presentation. It was produced by Ramesh Behl and directed by Ramesh Talwar.
The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Rakhee Gulzar, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Ifthekhar, A.K. Hangal, Raj Kiran, Master Vikas, Pardesi, Raj Verama/Chandu, Baby Gazala, Salma, Kirit Vyas, Mrs. H.F. Mistry, Vishwanath, Sudha Chopra, Gulshan/Harjeet, Raj Bharti, Tikka Singh etc in it.

This movie has six songs in it which are all penned by Gulzar.

Gulzar Saab also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and story of this movie.

Music for this film was composed by R.D. Burman.

Our dear Prakash ji had shared two songs from this movie for the today’s occasion. However, I am presenting a different – lesser heard song from this movie for today’s occasion.

I was not aware of this song till one year back or may be a little more than that. But, during the last one year I had heard it many times on ‘Radio’ (VVB) and since then I have been liking this song very much.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Raj Kiran and Poonam Dhillon. Many other artists are also seen in the picturisation of this song on screen.

This is the only Kishore Kumar song in this movie ‘Basera-1981’ and on the blog too we surely are due for a Kishore Kumar song now, as the last Kishore song on the blog was posted on 13.08.2022.

More about this movie ‘Baseraa-1981’ and its songs will be covered in future posts of this movie-songs on the blog 😊

Till then let us now listen to today’s song …

I hope that readers will also enjoy this song.

The blog completes 14 years of its existence today (19 july 2008-19 july 2022).

Blog Day :

5114 Post No. : 17061

19 July is a special day for the blog. It was on this day in 2008 that the blog went online with its first post, namely Mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar li . That was the only post of the day, befitting the name of the blog “Atul Song A Day”. Discussing one song daily was the original idea and the blog stuck to it for 40 days. after that, the blog began to cover more than one song daily. It became “Atul Many Songs A Day”. On some occasions, as many as 12 and even 13 songs were covered in one day. Some exasperated subscribers of the blog complained that they were song lovers, but not that hardcore song lovers that they could handle one song notification in their e mail almost every hour of the day. 🙂

Acronym of the Blog name is ASAD. Depending on the places where I was based during the last 14 years, the blog could be described as ASAD Jabalpuri, ASAD Nagpuri, ASAD Bilaspuri, Asad Barelvi (or ASAD Izatnagri) and ASAD Gorakhpuri. These do not sound right-do I hear some people say that ? Now the blog is finally ASAD Bhopali. 🙂 That sounds right. 🙂 After being posted in different places in different parts of India, I retired from service last june and settled at Bhopal. So the blog from now onwards is likely to be permanently ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

ASAD by the way stands for “Lion” in Arabic. Mind you, Lion, not Tiger. Another set of “Lion” are in news these days namely the lions of Sarnath. 🙂

19 July 2008 was a saturday and unknowingly, it was on this day that the month of Saawan began. That was quite befitting and fortuitous, seeing that “Saawan” is musicaly a very important season for Hindi movie songs. This season has inspired a very large number of songs in Hindi movies.

The blog, after being a song a day blog for the first 40 days of its existence began to cover lots and lots of songs, touching its pinnacle in 2012 when 2071 songs were covered at an average of 5.66 songs every day. But we have seen decline in blog strike rate since then. Only 547 song posts appeared in 2019, at an average of just 1.5 songs a day.

Posts appear in the blog almost every day, almost without fail. Today (19 July 2018) is the 5114th day for the blog. 223 out of these 5114 days (4.3%) have been DOT days (viz days when no posts appeared). The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day of the blog). So the blog is at present seing a long unbroken streak of 937 days when at least one song is being covered in the blog everyday.

Consistency of effort has seen the blog clock its 17000th song recently (on 12 June 2022). With time, the blog has added new dimensions to it. From a one man show,  it became an online collaboration of limkeminded music lovers coming from various parts of the country,  and some coming from abroad as well. It is very heartening to note that our core group of contributors reflect the unity in diversity that India reprsents. And quite remarkably, the two genders are represented almost equally.

The blog has become a very important part in the lives of many in ways that we are often unaware. For instance, there was this heartwarming post by a lady who mentioned that she played the song Jyoti kalash chhalke(Bhaabhi ki choodiyaan)(1961) every morning for herself as well as her young granddaughter. On several occasions, we have had comments from people who discovered some songs in the blog many decades after they had last heard the song. We also had comments in the blog from relatives of artists who have contributed in the fields of HFM. Our regulars too have had relatives who had contributed in this field.

The blog has helped us connect with each other online as well as offline. Regulars of this blog have had many get togethers as well as one on one meetings over the years. Personally I had the good fortune to meet a few of our regulars. These meetings were extremely memorable experiences that I cherish to this date. Some of these meetings have been covered in articles appearing in the blog. Other regulars have done the same.

In the articles that we have written, we have covered lots and lots of topics,  some of them not even related to music, but they are topics of common interest to most of us. For instance, we have discussed economy, sports, unsung heroes of India, pets, history, geography etc in the blog.

We can go on and on, but let us stop here and get back to our “main” issue of interest, namely music. On this happy occasion, when the blog has completed 14 years, we already had some upbeat songs in the blog. The song under discussion is one that is bound to cheer the audience up even more.

This song is from “Yaaraana”(1981). “Yaaraana”(1981) was produced by H A Nadiadwala and directed by Rakesh Kumar. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Neetu Singh, Tanuja, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Ranjeet, Bharat Bhushan, Viju Khote, Lalita Pawar, Ram Sethi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it (including two multiple version songs). Six of these songs (including two multiple version songs) have been covered so far.

Here is this song from “Yaaraana”(1981). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

This song is a stage dance song, a Disco dance song in fact, that was the flavour of those days. This is one of few songs from that era, which has stood the test of time and continues to remain popular to this day.

As part of Blog celebration, here is this great song from “Yaaraana”(1981) that is guaranteed to make the day of the music lovers.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement is the perpetual source of energy that is driving this musical bandwagon on and on. Hoping to reach many more musical destinations and milestones in the times to come.

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

Blog Day : 5011 Post No. : 16915 Movie Count : 4593

Today’s song is from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Meri Aaawaaz Suno’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board with ‘A’ certificate, so people of my age then (I was around 13 years old) were not eligible to watch this movie during its first run.
However, I remember that our seniors used to discuss this movie and the brutal violence shown in it. What I vaguely remember about this movie is that Jeetendra plays a double role – one of dreaded murderer and one of a sincere and dedicated police officer. I think the music of this film was also overall good. I carried the memory of a couple of songs from this movie. I am presenting one of them today.

I did not remember the other songs of this movie. While preparatiing of this post I visited other songs and found one more song that was familiar to me.

Today’s song has a catchy tune and foot tapping music. Jeetendra and Parveen Babi perform on screen on this song.

Today 7th April’2022 is the eightieth birthday of Jeetendra (born on 07.04.1942). He was a major lead actor in the movies of ‘seventies’ and continued to shine in the ‘eighties’ too. Today he will be celebrating his 81st birthday. On this occasion, we wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Parveen Babi the actress in this song (04th April’1954 – 20th January’2005) had her birthday falling on 04th April. She would have turned sixty-eight on that day. She wore her usual ‘Parveen Babi looks’ 🙂 in this song and looks ‘gorgeous’. This picturisation brings back memories of her other movies from the ‘seventies’ and ‘eighties’ too.

Coming back to today’s movie ‘Meri Aaawaaz Suno’ was directed by S.V. Rajendra Singh for ‘Padmalaya Films, Madras’. It was produced by G.A. Sheshgiri Rao.

Story of this movie was written by H.K. Ananta Rao. S.V. Rajendra Singh also wrote this movie and screenplay of this movie.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Kader Khan. Editing of this movie was done by K. Gopala Rao.

The star cast of this movie included Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Parveen Babi, Ranjeet, Vijay Arora, Kader Khan, Om Shivpuri, Shakti Kapoor, Tamanna, Urmila Bhatt, Asrani, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, Rajan Haksar, Manmohan Krishan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.11.1981. It seems that this movie was released in the theatres in Dec’1981, or later than that.

This movie had five songs written by Anand Bakshi which were composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Haay kya soch rahi ho … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
02 O tumhe dekha hai to aisa lagta hai Asha Bhonsle
03 Achchaa hua tum mil gaye Asha Bhonsle
04 Gudiya re gudiya re, tu batlaa meri gudiya kaisi hogi (two versions) Asha Bhonsle
05 Mehmaanon ko salaam hai mera, he he Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced by Jeetendra and Parveen Babi. Ranjeet, Raj Mehra, Rajan Haksar (hope I am correct), Pinchoo Kapoor, Kader Khan and others are also present among the audience in the song.

With this song, ‘Meri Aawaaz Suno-1981’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us now enjoy this song.

Hullo Atuldom

A very very Happy Holi to all the followers of this wonderful blog. May there be lots of ‘rang and umang’ all around.

I have been following this blog for 13 years i.e. from March 2009. The head-over-heels involvement began almost instantly. I see that 66 songs, connected with this colourful festival, have been posted in all these years. I find a few songs showcasing the festival have been posted on ‘non-holi’ days too. So that must indicate that we will not have sufficient songs in coming years to post on festival days. But that is not so.

The film industry has been in existence since 1912/1913, and its romance with the festival of colours may have started almost immediately. (I did my own searching, on our blog, and found a post by Sudhirji where he has mentioned that “the songs of Holi go as far back as 1931.”)

A search on Google for the first song of Holi in Indian films came up with the song from Mehboob Khan’s “Aurat”. That song is on the blog with a post by Sudhirji which I have spoken of in the previous para. In that post he has written, and I quote

“As is inseparable, the festival of Holi and its songs from our lives, so it is also inseparable from the Hindi film screen. It is no wonder that the most celebrated of all the festivals on the Hindi screen is this festival of colors.” He also writes “In fact, many times, the situation of Holi is simply engineered into the storyline. Just so that one more song and dance sequence can be inserted into the screenplay.”

That being the love between the festival of colours and films, we will never run out of songs to post. I don’t remember the last time I wrote out a Holi-Song for the blog, but I recalled a few possible songs for the festival this year. And as is my habit I have tried to combine two occasions with this one post.

18th March would have been the 84th birthday of the smart, cute, gentleman actor Shashi Kapoor -of the charming smile. The DTH channel, that I currently follow, keeps playing interviews of yesteryear heroines like Moushumi Chatterjee, Sharmila Tagore, Zarina Wahab etc. All of them have one thing to say about this actor – “He was very gracious and courteous. Very caring and went out of his way to make the ladies comfortable”. He never had any qualms about acting the second lead and we know of his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, but he was equally at ease sharing screen space with Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra etc. He may not have been the best of dancers, so what, he moved with a sense of rhythm and never seemed to miss a beat.

Today’s song is from the 1981 release “Ek Aur Ek Gyarah” that was directed by Ashok Roy. It had Neetu Singh, Zarina Wahab, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Prem Chopra, Om Prakash, P. Jairaj, Bharat Bhushan, Asrani, Master Bhagwan, etc in the cast. Laxmi-Pyare and Majrooh Sultanpuri were responsible for the music and produced by Ram Prasad Sharma. This holi-song is sung by Hemlata, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. It has all the standard, filmy, elements needed viz. dry and wet colours, bhang, and eve-teasing too towards the end of the song. But we can also see the lady replying sternly to the guy that “joote maaroongi”. If we see the dance closely, at one point we have Shashi Kapoor desperately trying to match Neetu Singh step-for-step and breaking into some choreography of his own. A thing that always catches my attention in holi-songs is however wet the actors get their dresses are dry in the very next instant.

I must say that I have actively participated in the merry-making of Holi and I have never seen anyone go crazy yelling ‘holi hai’. I have never seen people breaking into song and dance about it. Possible that these things happen in Brij bhoomi, and parts of North India. I would like to tour that region during holi, if possible. Also I would like to see the Lath-Maar Holi of Nandgaon and Barsana.

Happy Holi to one and all once again.

Remembering Shashi Kapoor …………

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 19
————————————————————————————–

February 2012 was a month that saw as many as 178 songs getting covered in the blog, at an average of over 6 songs a day. There were several days when even 8 and nine songs were covered in one day !

The date of 15 February 2012 was a sedate day in comparison. Only four songs were discussed on this date. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5458 Ek teer chala dil pe laga Mahal(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5449 Wo dekhen to unki inaayat Funtoosh(1956) Movie YIPPEED by now
5460 Ye kya jagah hai doston Umrao Jaan(1981) 7 songs covered out of 9
5461 Yoon to milney ko ham miley hain bahut Faasle(1985) 3 songs covered out of 10

One can observe that two out of four movies whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago are already YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies whose songs can still be discussed today, ten years later, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”.

“Umrao Jaan”(1981) is one such movie. This movie, a musical extravaganza, had as many as nine sons in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Umrao Jaan”(1981) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shahariar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam. The song is picturised on Rekha, with Rita Rani Kaul, Farooque Shaikh and Umme Farwa also seen in the picturisation.

It is a very short song, less that two minutes long. The audio and video versions contain one extra stanza not available in the other version.

Lyrics of the song have been provided by Prakashchandra. The lyrics combine all the stanzas that are available either in the audio or in the video version.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 10
———————————————————

73rd Republic Day of India

ek hai apni zameen
ek hai apna gagan
ek hai apna jahaan
ek hai apna watan
apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain
aawaaz do
aawaaz do ham ek hain
ham ek hain

“What is it that I want? The same as you, the same as everyone else. I want to be physically safe and healthy, financially secure and personally happy. I want the same confidence in my abilities, in my environment and social acceptance. I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”
This is me, in conversation with a dear friend and a long-time colleague. This conversation happened some 15-16 years ago. Actually, we were on the same page in the topic, she was not coming from any opposite direction at all. But she was the one clear on the causes of a problem, I was the one confused.
But things are a lot clearer to me now, exactly what I wanted to explain at that time is more obvious now.

apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain

The causes of happiness for the common man are the same everywhere, whatever is the religion, caste, race, region, language, state or country they are allied to. The aspirations are same and the apprehension and causes of sadness are also the same essentially. This is the way a social environment develops, where people go and join hands with each other in times of happiness and sadness.

Today the country is celebrating 73rd Republic Day.

The constitution gives us the right to live with dignity. What is a person’s dignity? it is not just the pride in its citizenship, its values and its integrity. A person’s dignity is the self-belief that I have done nothing wrong and don’t mean any harm to anyone. And a feeling of security, that me, my life, my livelihood and my family is safe. A sense of belonging that makes us feel responsible for the safety and security of fellow citizens and has assurance of reciprocation. Also, that I deserve all that I command. Personally, socially and professionally.

As a citizen it is a right to demand and acquire good education, an adequate health facility, a great judicial system and better law enforcement agencies, plus a media which gives us information, that really mattered. Real information, on what has been done to give the above rights to the citizens.

With the slow and gradual increase of opportunities in education and personal growth, the inequalities have also increased. A success story in monetary terms and career, is just not enough. It is also important to have balanced and broad-minded success stories. Rationality and seeing an issue in a truly international perspective are what will make a successful person intellectually empowered.

At the ripe old age of 75, we should have been a mature people.
Do we see enough, do we care enough?
Do we bother to call out the misbehaviour, of miscreants we see on the streets? Are we bold to speak out against injustice?
Are we smart enough to sift through the crap fed to us day in and day out in the guise of news and entertainment?
Do we bother to check the authenticity of WhatsApp forwards before sharing with other people?
Do we even care that our ‘can’t care less’ attitude is destroying the centuries old social fabric of our society and stripping us of our identity as a people, the whole world, looked at with respect?

Munshi Premchand said “Communalism, whenever it raises its head, it comes within a cloak. Because it is ashamed of coming alone or walking alone. “
Yes, at the age of 75, we are a nation of most young people in the world. Being second largest population in the world, with an average age of 28 years, the figures of young people and children are just hugest in the world. If these young people are a part of work force and aspire for personal growth and are able to collectively individually, contribute to the nation building, what can be built and achieved is mind boggling.
But are we looking at what the young population of this country is aspiring to be?
What is the ambition of an average Indian youngster?
what are their hopes?
What are their priorities?

It is very important to channelise the energies and ambitions of youth towards personal and professional excellence. There is enough talent, brains and hands in this country to make it an economic force. But for that we have to rise above the politics of religion, caste, us and they, region etc.

There was a story of cats and a monkey, we used to hear and read as children. Lately I have not seen it repeated anywhere. So here is the story for refreshing the memory of readers:

Two cats are fighting for a roti. The monkey comes and tells them to stop fighting and make two equal pieces of the roti. The cats agree and make two parts. The monkey tells them the two parts are not equal, one is larger and the other is smaller. He advises the cat holding the larger piece, to break a small part and give it to him, so both the cats have equal portions. The result is again the same, the parts of the roti the cats have are still not equal. So, the other cat is asked to break a small piece and give it to the monkey, to establish the equality. So on and so forth the dispute continues, till the whole roti is finished, while the cats remain empty handed in the end.

Similar is the case of inequality in opportunities in our set up. In the name of equalising those opportunities, the opportunists among us are gobbling up the parts and parcel. Keeping the marginalised sections divided and fighting imaginary/perceptive fights with each other. It is not a true cut and dried, there are multiple layers to these differences, perceptions of not getting a fair share of the ‘roti’. The majority/minorities tussle is but one layer of it and the cloak which Munish Premchand referred to. The real divide here is still the have’s and have nots. Then there is a gender divide, which is inherent and keeps getting uglier.

Where does all this leave the common man, with its apprehensions and aspirations? With their same dukh and sukh, I spoke about in the first para.
“I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”

It is true, that once I had children, all my self-interests and care less impulsiveness gave way to worries of the future. Not the least of which was the worry for their safety, physical, emotional and psychological. Major part of their time was spent outside the home, in school and in the creche. How the things that they imbibe from the social atmosphere will affect their character, their thought processes and their choices and priorities? This was a cause of worry for me.

Yes, these ills in society are stemming for this one vice, i. e. selfishness. A few days ago, I had a big discussion with my son, regarding the self-interest of sections of society, and the marginalised sections of the society, who are still outside a certain margin. This margin is not unbreachable. We can see it breached in some developed states in the country. In most parts of the country, the focus of the populace is on the personal growth, better life quality and the common interests of the common man.

My son, interestingly was coming from the other direction in the discussion. I have managed to make an inroad in the way, he looks at opportunities for himself and for others, his fellow countrymen, who have the talent, ability and deserve to take their rightful place in the progress and development of the country, I hope, because he has not come to me with any counter-arguments on the topic :-).

This is my quest to make a balanced, truly intellectual success story out of my children. There is no ‘ism’ in this thought process, just a bit of logic and unselfishness. The conscious unwillingness to get embroiled in a conflict of interests which is a matter of perception. This really is a distraction, which our youth do not need.

The problems and issues in our country are centric and specific to our country. These have to be looked at with a prism of our own, not look for solutions to it, from examples of other nations and other societies.

I will move on to the song post.

The song is an iconic song from the 1981 film “Kranti’. The punch line, or the concluding line of the song is

Mera chana hai apni marzi kaa
Marzi ka bhai marzi ka
Yeh dushman hai khudgarzi kaa
Khudgarzi ka khudgarzi kaa

“mera chana’ can be interpreted as ‘my passion’ or ‘my goal’, which really is to treat ‘khudgarzi’ i.e. selfishness as the enemy.

The song is iconic, as it has three legends of hindi film music singing it with the son of another legend. Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar are singing for Dilip Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha and Hema Malini, whereas Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Manoj Kumar in the song, which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I used to hear the ‘sponsored programme’ of this film on Vividh bharati, I have seen the movie also long back. But I only recalled that Rafi Sahab is singing just one line for Dilip Kumar in this song. But now that I have seen and heard the song multiple times, the lines Rafi sahab is singing towards the end of the song, are definitely very significant and elevate the whole song to another level. The composition and orchestration have been kept very simple and basic by Laxmikant-pyarelal, so this is not a crowded song, with all these greats singing their parts, independently and together, with male and female chorus to add to the group.

This is the only song of these four singers. For Rafi sahab’s series, this must be the last such song remaining to be posted in the blog where Rafi sahab and Kishore Kumar are singing together, with or without Lata Mangeshkar and Nitin Mukesh. For Rafi-Lata duets, there are a few songs, at least one of them I plan to include in the series. So, this post takes care of Rafi sahab’s association with Kishore kumar, Nitin Mukesh and Santosh Anand.

Let us go to the song, and listen to the rendition which is a real ‘hair raising’ experience.

Hullo Atuldom

So, we have post number 16700 up. Congratulations to Atulji on yet another Hundred. There was a time, not so long back, when we used to have a century every month. Atulji, please confirm, wasn’t there a fastest century too- a century in 16 days? In the run up to my previous post I had noticed that “this date last year” i.e. 15th December 2020, the blog had celebrated its 16100th post with this post which also happened to be the music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan’s 1000th on the blog. I was wondering how Atulji will make post number 16700 special and it is indeed special considering the time-period of that song (1947). Hearty congratulations Atulji.

Let us kick-start the new century with a song from the 1981 release “Shradhanjali”. This was written and directed by Anil Sharma (who was only 21 then), produced by K C Sharma and had Hemant Bhonsle’s music and songs written by Anjaan. Bhupinder Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, and Shobha Gurtu were the playback singers used.

The movie had a cast headed by Rakhee (in one of her sacrificing Naari roles) and Deepak Parasher was her romantic hero. Arun Govil played her Devar (brother-in-law) who is in awe of her and simply worships her. Madhu Kapoor was Arun Govil’s romantic interest, Sulochana was mother to Deepak Parasher and Arun Govil and Rakhee’s mother-in-law. Suresh Oberoi played the spoke-in-the-wheel that topples Rakhee’s apple cart. Then the movie had K.N. Singh, Jankidas, Yunus Parvez, Manik Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni etc bringing up the supporting cast; all of whose characters together make the movie a ‘sob-story-movie’ which became Rakhee’s forte’ for a few years in the 80s. The Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu Bhopali also makes an appearance in the movie for the song that was sung by Shobha Gurtu.

I have very little knowledge about the Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu, though I have seen the song from ‘Shradhanjali’ a few times in my life. Her facial expressions were very pretty. This is what our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has written about Shakeela Banu Bhopali in his latest post (and I quote, hope he doesn’t mind it)

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film- ‘Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002.

This was part of a post that highlighted Jaani Babu Qawwal in Arunkumarji’s current series on ‘songs from artiste name films’

As per what I read somewhere on the internet, she had lost her voice due to the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. She passed away of a cardiac arrest on 16th December, 2002.

On to the song that is part of the wedding rituals of Madhu Kapoor and Arun Govil. We can see Suresh Oberoi welcoming the groom and the baaraat of which Arun Govil’s bhabhima (Rakhee) and her chief advisor (K.N. Singh) who is helping her in resurrecting her husband’s business after Suresh Oberoi ruins it and is the cause of Deepak Parasher’s death.


Song-Sainyya doli leke aaye tere dwaare sawere leke jaayenge(Shradhhanjali)(1981) Singer-Shobha Gurtu, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Hemant Bhonsle
Chorus

Lyrics

sainya doli leke
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge
gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge

sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

maathe pe chanda ki bindiya lagaa doon
haan haan bindiya laga doon
maathe bindiya lagaa doon

ankhiyon mein badra ka kajra saja doon
haan haan kajra sajaa doon
naina kajra saja doon

phoolon ke ras mein
chunri ranga ke
phoolon ke ras mein chunri ranga ke
gale pehna doon
gale pehna doon ye chandrhaar
to raaja lut jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

saj saj ke aaya tere sapnon ka raaja
haan haan sapnon ka raaja
tere sapnon ka raaja

peechhe baaraati
aage aage band baja
haan haan aage band baja
sajeela band baja

gore gore haathon mein hogi varmaala
gore gore hathon mein hogi varmaala
hogi unse
hogi unse teri ankhiyaan chaar
to naina sharmaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

chunri dupatte ka bandhan judega
haan haan bandhan judega
naya bandhan judega

phir saath pheron mein jiyara udega
haan haan jiyara udega
tera jiyara udega
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
tere aanchal mein
tere aanchal mein hogi bahaar
do pyaase dil mil jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge
