Today (7 august 2017) is the festival of Raakhi aka rakshabandhan. This festival is being celebrated from time immemorial, may be for more than two thousand years or so. Some interesting tales regarding this festival are mentioned in various sources. It would see that amulets were tied by women on men (not necessarily their brothers) for mens’ protection in ancient times. It was later that this practice took the present day form of sisters tying it on brothers’ wrist.

This is the tenth rakshbandhan festival for this blog ! How time has flown ! I still remember the first occasion of Rakshabandhan in this blog which fell on 16 august 2008. I had especially discussed the song Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana(Chhoti Bahan)(1959). This blog, which till then had daily visitors in two figures, got visitors in three figures for the first time ! 296 visitors visited the blog that day which was a big deal for the blog at that time. Now of course we get many more visitors these days days and we are now on the verge of clocking one crore (ten millions) visitors in the blog.

We have been discussing Rakhi related songs in the blog on every rakhi festival occasions. We have covered all the well known rakhi festival songs. We have slso lesser known as well as obscure songs related to this festival. Overall, 22 Rakhi festival songs have been covered in the blog till now.

We have not run out of songs of this occasion. In fact, there have been songs that I have been planning to discuss on the past occasion but I was unable to do so for one reason or the other.

For instance, the Rakhi festival song from “Rishta Kaaghaz Ka”(1983) was earmarked by me for posting on the rakhi festival day on 10 august 2014 itself, but for some reason I was not able to do so. This song was under consideration for posting on the net occasions as well.

“Rishta Kaaghaz Ka”(1983) was produced and directed by Ajay Goel for Goel Cine Corporation. The movie had
Nutan, Suresh Oberoi, Master Raju Shrestha, Rati Agnihotri, Raj Babbar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Neeta Mehta, Johnny Walker, Iftekhar, Sudhir, Urmila Bhatt, Jagdish Raj, Sudha Chopra, Brahm Bhardwaj etc in it.

Now finally this Rakhi song from “Rishta Kaaghaz Ka”(1983) makes its appearance in the blog on the rakhi festival occasion of 2017. Like the debut Rakhi song in the blog, this song too is sung by Lata. But while the iconic “Chhoti Bahan” (1959) Rakhi song was picturised on chhoti bahan Nanda tying Raakhi on her elder brothers, here we find Nutan tying raakhi on her chhota bhai, played by Master Raju. Gajanan Jagirdar, Suresh Oberoi, Urmila Bhatt and Brahm Bhardwaj are also visible in the picturisation.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

I am thankful to Prakashchandra who sent this song in 2014 and kept reminding me about this Rakhi festival song on every subsequent occasions as well without feeling bitter or disappointed. There are many more Rakhi festival songs that he has sent me. While I will try to cover some more songs today leave me with Rakhi songs for future use as well 🙂

I take this opportunity to greet one and all on the occasion of this festival.


Song-Chhota sa bhaiyya hamaara (Rishta Kaaghaz Ka)(1983) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

hmm hmm hmm hmm

chhotaa saa bhaiyya hamaaraa

tu hi toh hai meri duniyaa

dori na tootegi
jag mein kahin rahe tu
doongi main tujhko sahaaraa
chhotaa saa bhaiyya hamaaraa
behnaa ke dil ka dulaaraa

hogaa badaa jis din tu
lekar duaa meri
hogaa badaa jis din tu
lekar duaa meri
pyaar se charchaa karegaa
saaraa zamaanaa teri
kadmon ke neeche hogaa
duniyaa ka doojaa kinaaraa
chhotaa saa bhaiyya hamaaraa
behnaa ke dil ka dulaaraa
sooraj ne dekhaa
chandaa ne dekhaa
sabko lagey kitnaa pyaaraa
chhotaa saa bhaiyya hamaaraa
behnaa ke dil ka dulaaraa

So today is the 81st birthday of our favourite “he-man” (a tag like the angry-young-man tag that was given to Amitabh Bachchan a long time ago.)

Born in Punjab and loved the world over he is an actor first who went on to become a producer to launch his sons in filmdom. He was possibly the only actor to have sailed successfully through the Rajesh Khanna and then the Amitabh Bachchan wave. He had a hold on comedy too -“Chupke Chupke” is a case in point. So today we are celebrating Dharamendra.

There are many movies which come and disappear becoming forgotten over time. It is such movies that take time to make their debuts on our blog. This movie “Kaun Hai Woh?” (1983) is one such movie. Its songs are not available on YouTube. Its artists are no longer in the limelight and the movies songs lie in the dust with some collectors.

So 2015 comes to an end. We have had a very eventful year on the blog. Reached many milestones. Many artists reached centuries and some had their thousands and two thousands. Many contributors have posted multiple centuries. But Atulji still remains the man who is the whole and soul sutradhar of this wonderful place in CYBERLAND. If it was not for his encouragement we would all still be waiting for his time and our farmaishes to be fulfilled. If he had not allowed us- his blog followers -to write our thought with our favourite songs it would not have been possible to read gems from enlightened souls like Arunkumar Deshmukhji and Bharat Upadhyayji and Shenoyji and Sudhirji. I can think of our blog as a kind of workplace where each person specializes in a particular field.  Long live such a well oiled machinery!!!! Also in the month of November we had our annual panchis (birds) returning home and a few of us got together in Bangalore (of course we are waiting for the Ankhon Dekha Haal from our able commentator Rajaji).

Hullo to all at Atuldom

The rains always send me down memory lane. Whether it is the June to September cycle of the Indian monsoon or the unexpected rains that happen in the connection with the low pressures in the Bay Of Bengal sometime during October – November. Now going back to my school days, I remember that it is all geographical phenomena that brings rain in oct- Nov. but the June rains have more memories attached to them than the winter rains. Our schools used to reopen post summer vacations in June. And the rainy season; as we in Mumbai knew it; would promptly arrive in the second week of June with heavy downpours, water logging and forced closure of schools giving us additional holidays. (Yes; that was common even thirty years ago as it is today when all and sundry cry foul about the bad drainages.)

There are people who look forward to the weekends and they raise a silent or may be not so silent hurray as soon as they leave from their office to their home on friday evening. Why are people so happy during weekends and what exactly do they do on weekends ? I feel that working people are happy on realising that they will not have to be at the beck and call of their boss in the office for the next two days. They hope that they would be their own bosses for the next two days. Weekends are especially sweet for those people who feel that they have the misfortune of working with the worst boss in the world. 🙂

No other month begins with a day that is named after itself.  It is only the month of May that starts with a day that is called May Day.  Historically, this specific day has a long history of cultural and social significance.  A history that goes back to pre-Christ era.  The Romans used to celebrate this day as a spring festival.  The festival was called Floralia, in the honor of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  Further north, in Germany, this day was celebrated as Walburgis Night.  Coinciding with the arrival of summer weather in the European continent, this day was also celebrated as the first day of summer in some regions.  Community fairs were held, with the traditional dancing around the Maypole, and the beauty contest to select and crown the ‘Queen of May’.  People used to distribute anonymous gifts, called May Baskets, in their neighborhoods.

So what is so special about today? It is the birthday of an Atulite. And the wedding anniversary of another. For all this info we have to thank a third Atulite.

Ok I know that was a bit confusing. So here is wishing our Avey-of-Discard (if I may borrow Sudhirji’s code language) a very happy birthday. And thanks to our dejavu007 (another loan from a previous post of Sudhirji ;-)) so we were all activated when Shri. Dejavu007 wished Avey-of-Discard on whatsapp this morning. And promptly without batting an eyelid all of us copycats wished Avey-of-Discard a very Happy Birthday. (I am sure my fellow Atulwaasis won’t mind being called copycats as I was the lead copycat 🙂 ) And the gracious Avey-of-Discard (how about adding a ji to this code name, just a passing thought) gave us the info that it was another regular atulite’s wedding anniversary; that of the NeatInsider (oh I seem to be borrowing heavily today, hope this whole thing is free or today Sudhirji will become a lot richer due to the Byaaj I will have to pay for my borrowings 🙂 )

LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…Song No. 11
———————————————————–

it is not that Unreleased films were the speciality of the 40s or 50s. on the contrary, the percentage of such films has increased from the last few years. What I learnt from last few days, while working on this series is, that the number of incomplete or unreleased films was the maximum- to the extent of almost running over 100- during the years 70s and 80s. If you see the statistics, you will find that the number of censored films has also increased systematically from 1970 onwards. In 1990, it touched 200 films and thereafter from 2000, it has always been between 200 to 300, touching 250 in 2005.
