Hullo to all in Atuldom

If it is a post by me then it has to be someone’s’ birthday.

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997). I just thought that it will be a lovely departure from routine to showcase the versatility of the forever young-at-heart Asha.

I am not going to get into her life history in this post, I will just say I am super excited that I am going to be seeing her in person, live in the show which goes by the name Rendezvous with Asha Bhonsle, which I assume will be as exhilarating an experience as the Rendezvous with Hema Malini has been last year. The minute I got the invite for this I had posted it on our WhatsApp group to find out if any Atulite will be interested and we could have gone as a gang. Our dear Rajaji said that much as he would like to be therehe cannot make it. But I am glad that I will have Gajendraji and his wife as company. By the time we had decided on the number of tickets to be purchased the stock of tickets with the organisers were exhausted but Gajendraji was an angel to book the tickets.

So, coming back to the song which I had in mind for the occasion is from a music album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (the only non-film cassette in my collection) which came out when the non-film music industry was booming with albums of people like Hariharan with Leslie Lewis as ‘Colonial Cousins’, Alisha Chinai, Suneeta Rao etc. This was the period when MTV and Channel V exploded on television in the name of satellite television. Songs of this genre were called Indie pop. The album had eight songs all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Leslie Lewis was the music director.  Asha Bhonsle was in her sixties and Majrooh in late seventies but the songs were everything that a young at heart could ask for. It had love songs in all the moods that accompany the emotion- roothna-manana; ikraar- inkaar aur takraar; etc.

For people who are not introduced to Leslie Lewis he is the son of prolific film choreographer Devaraj Peter Lewis – going by the name PL Raj in Bollywood. Leslie used to play guitar at the Café Royal, Oberoi Towers Mumbai and recorded with Kalyanji Anandji, Laximkant Pyarelal, RD Burman and Louis Banks. Starting with 1987, he composed advertising jingles and was nominated for awards from the Indian Academy of Advertising Film Art (IAAFA). In 1989 received an award for his work. He went on to make some famous jingles such as “Doodh-Doodh-Doodh (Piyo full glass)”, “Mango Fruity fresh and juicy”, “Thums Up taste the thunder”, “Santoor Santoor”, etc.

Lyrics

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahin
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

sanam tumko jis din se dekha hum ne
deewaana dil kaboo mein nahin
bada pyaara ye bhi itefaaq dekho
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin
tum hi mil jaate ho har kahin pyaare
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

agar tum bhi wo chaaho jo main chaahun
to gul khil jaaye iqraar ka
dilon ko milne de kuchh na bolen hum
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka
mazaa aaye phir to pyaar ka jaani
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
jaanam samjha karo

thehro padi hai raat yeh saari
kaahe ki jaldi jaane mann
daale hue yeh reshmi bahen
yun hi lipte raho tum gulbadan
taqdeer se yeh mil gaya mauqa
aage khud hi jaan lo
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

raat shabnami
bheegi chandani
teesra koi
door tak nahi
is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo
ho is ke aage hum
aur kya kahen
janam samjha karo

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

सनम तुमको जिस दिन से देखा हमने
दीवाना दिल काबू में नहीं
बड़ा प्यारा ये भी इत्तेफाक़ देखो
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं
तुम ही मिल जाते हो हर कहीं प्यारे
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

अगर तुम भी वो चाहो जो मैं चाहूँ
तो गुल खिल जाये इक़रार का
दिलों को मिलने दें कुछ ना बोलें हम
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का
मज़ा आए फिर तो प्यार का जानी
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

ठहरो पड़ी है ये रात सारी
काहे की जल्दी जाने मन
डाले हुये ये रेशमी बाहें
यूं ही लिपटे रहो तुम गुलबदन
तक़दीर से ये मिल गया मौका
आगे खुद ही जान लो
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो

रात शबनमी
भीगी चाँदनी
तीसरा कोई
दूर तक नहीं
इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें
जानम समझा करो
हो इस के आगे हम
और क्या कहें

Hullo all Atulwaasis

I want to thank a few people who made me what I am. And the few means a small number of 25 or so teachers. Today (5 september 2017) is TEACHER’s Day.

During school days, we used to eagerly wait for this day. Those were the days when we didn’t have regular pocket money and we had to put an application to our parents for anything from Re. 1 to Rs. 5 (depending on what the class organizing committee would have set as the minimum individual contribution.)

The money so collected would then be meticulously divided among the various expenses viz :- decoration material for the class, gift for the class teacher and flowers for the other teachers who would come in during the day. The day also had some students from senior classes dressed up as teachers and they would be assigned to take up classes as substitutes for subject- teachers. Probably that was the way our teachers thought that we would get an experience of how students behave with teachers. All in all it would be a non-instructional working day. (I don’t know how the students these days celebrate teacher’s day.) Another day set aside for commemorating teachers in India and Nepal is Guru Purnima or Ashad Shukla Purnima which falls some time in July-August.

My favourite reference point Wikipedia tells me that teacher’s day is celebrated in many countries. It is a day of appreciating teachers for their special contribution in a particular field or community in general. The date varies from country to country (in most cases they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education) and World Teacher’s Day is on 5th October.

India celebrates Teacher’s day, since 1962, on 5th September in memory of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan whose birthdate it is. He was India’s first Vice President and second President; a distinguished scholar of comparative religion and philosophy. His philosophy was rooted in Advaita Vedanta, reinterpreting this tradition for a contemporary understanding. He was awarded several high awards including a knighthood in 1931, the Bharat Ratna in 1954, and honorary membership of the British Royal Order of Merit in 1963. Radhakrishnan believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”.

Mahesh Bhatt made a movie in 1993 with the title “Sir”.

Today’s song is written by Qateel Shifai. Anu Malik is the composer; Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Kumar Shanu are the singers. It is a stage song performed by Pooja Bhatt and Atul Agnihotri. Paresh Rawal, Mushtaq Khan and Naseer are in the audience.

This was the debut of Atul Agnihotri in movies and this is the debut of this movie on our blog. It is from Mahesh Bhatt’s 1993 movie with the title “Sir”. It is the story of a college teacher ‘Naseeruddin Shah’ and his student ‘Pooja Bhatt’ who has a stammering problem. But since this was a Bollywood movie the story has many side tracks like love between two students, opposition of the father, and gang war added in for good measure.

P.S. How I wish I could have sent this to my English teacher from school for correcting and marking me as she did so many years back on all my essays. Remembering and missing all of them today.

This was a post I had written last year to be posted on teacher’s day. A few things have changed in my life since- (1) I managed to track down my English teacher mentioned herein and also visited her the last time I went to Chennai. Also, I am happy that I am in regular touch with her so I will actually, be able to forward this to her for her opinion. (2) my son has become a college lecturer.

A very Happy Holi to 9th holi today (13 march 2017) on this blog. And every holi we have Atul posting songs for the occasion. We have approximately 50 songs to celebrate holi. So does that mean we are out of songs? No, not at all! How can that happen? As long as we have Hindi Movies and as long as they have songs in them we can be sure of at least one holi song a year if not more. Oh, I seem to be echoing Sudhirji’s thoughts from his 2015’s holi post. But that is the truth of the matter. Holi will never go out of fashion in Bollywood. The only thing that might change is that people will request others to have dry holi this year as many parts of the country are facing drought conditions. And still others will opt for using organic colours that are less harmful to the skin etc. But what about the general public of the country who cannot afford the expensive organic stuff they will stick to the traditional gulal in various hues.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

People talk about the rich voice quality that Amitabh Bachchan has – the baritone etc. But has it occurred to anyone that there are and were and will be other actors who have or had similar voice? One such voice was that of Mogambo. There are tales that tell how the makers of “Mr. India” went from Danny to Amjad Khan to any other known faces of that era to play the character of Mogambo. Each one had his own reason for not taking up that character and eventually Amrish Puri ended up being The Mogambo and now it is impossible to even imagine any other person as Mogambo. I am unable to distinguish the man from the character and part of the power in the role was the voice of the actor.

Hi everyone in Atuldom

Happy New Year 2017 to all

I was trying my level best to resist the urge to write out a song in memory of RDB- our very own Pancham. Not because I don’t like RD Burman, I know the whole world of Atulites know how much I love Pancham, just that I was too occupied with other things which needed a lot of my time. But then I remembered that I had selected a song and had wanted to send it across to Atul to be posted today (4 january 2017).
