55th birthday of A. R. Rehman
———————————————————–

A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 1
———————————————————–

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. – Rumi

Some years ago, I received a Whatsapp forward featuring a sketch with Rumi’s character, in a 21st century setting. This requires careful description, so you all please be patient with me.

There he was, 13th century persian poet and philosopher, Jalaludding Rumi, turban and all, sitting on one end of a small primitive boat. A boat that fits in a New York apartment’s living room. Guess who is doing the honors of ‘Chappu chalauing’ at the other end of the boat? It was Chandler, of ‘Friends’ fame. Imagine a boat on the floor of a city living room, at one end Chandler is roving the boat and Rumi is sitting on the other end. The caption with it, also in 21st century English, read “When you are looking for a Roomie and misspell it!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha. If no one is laughing, I have only myself to blame for thinking of Rumi. “ham wahan hain jahan se ham ko bhi kuchh hamaari khabar nahi aati”

I have been exposed to some episodes of ‘Friends’, so identifying Chandler was the easy bit in the caricature. I could connect, the word “Roomie” to Rumi after some deliberation, but never having seen Rumi, or his picture or sketch, I was wondering who is the peasant in the boat. And what is a boat doing in the living room? It transpired that Rumi had arrived in his boat in response to the ad posted by Chandler for a roomie, as he misspelt it as Rumi. Since in Rumi’s time the preferred mode of transport was a boat, Persia is sure to have been full of rivers. Or canals, like Venice.

But I quite liked the idea of a boat in the living room. I did contemplate, on a real-life boat, the size of a two-three seater sofa, which was available for sale in a handicraft shop in Alleppy, Kerela. I could not figure out a way of transporting it to Mumbai, so had to drop the idea. I have a few embellished display size boats, but it is not the same. Now, after writing all this, I am thinking I should make another attempt at it.

At least a boat is doable, but imagine if someone is fond of trains, how will they get them in the living room. Trains are good for travelling, they take you from Point A to Point B, that is their usefulness. I have seen a train on the dining table with tracks and all, for movement of serving dishes, somewhere in a museum, probably. Now that is nice idea, if the kitchen is next of the dining section, a train can be made and for variety, a tunnel or two can added in the landscape. My imagination is running away with me.

I have finally arrived at the destination point, i. e. a train song. An iconic song for our generation of movie goers. A sufiana song written by Gulzar and composed by A. R. Rehman for Dil Se(1998). Singers are Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. There is a lot of trivia available here about this song. There is this page too, which states that this song and video was at 9th position in the poll for top 10 all time songs, for which people from 55 countries voted. This poll was conducted by BBC world service.

The original composition of a solo by Sukhwinder Singh titled “Thaiyya thaiya” is also part of the movie’s song track, though it was not used in the film. The song begin with the lines “Eid aayi mera yaar nayi aaya”, but it is actually based on Bulle Shah’s “Tere ishq nachaya kar thhaiya thhaiya”. The version is mostly in Punjabi, with the same tune. So, I thought maybe that should be treated as a separate song.

These films songs are among the best of A. R. Rehman, Gulzar and Lata Mangeshkar. And they will be the best of Udit Narayan & Mahalaxmi Iyer(Aye Ajnabi), Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamurthy(tu hi tu satragi re), Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi(Chhaiyya chhaiyya).

The song becomes iconic due to its picturization of a group of dancers, with Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora, dancing atop a running train. It is shot in location of Ooty. This is also the best of Farah Khan’s choreography. This is among the first few outdoorsy songs I shortlisted for posting in the blog.

Gulzar sahab is talking of ‘Jannat’ and ‘Firdaus’, which means Paradise. ‘Gulposh is invisible, kaayenaat is universe, Taaveez is talisman, ‘aayat’ is sentence/verse(scholars say ‘aayat’ in the quranic context are niether sentence nor verse, it is an entirely different unit of deliverance) of Al-Quran which are in Arabic. What Gulzar sahab may mean in this line ‘mera naghma wahi mera kalma wahi’, is that ishq as a philosophy is my song, my first and last word.

wo yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah
jis ki zubaan urdu ki tarah

The first thought the word ‘Urdu’ invokes in the minds of Urdudaan as well as non-urdudaan, is its sweetness (Shireen) and cultured-ness(muhazzib). These two things ‘shireeni’ and ‘tehzeeb’ go hand in hand and are two sides of the same coin. This literally means, the object of ishq is anything that has flagrant aura and talks speaks and sings with a sweetness. Fragrance is a thing which is also pure, clean and invisible. Sincerity and unpretentiousness, plus a sweet way of conduct and speech is:

Meri shaam raat
Meri kaayenaat

Shaam is a time of relaxation and liesure and raat is for resting. ‘Kaayenaat’ is my ‘universe of abundance’. So there goes, if the object of my ishq is, the highest ideals of sincerity and good conduct, then it will be my contentment and happiness for which sky in the limit. Is this the salvation and moksh in this life?

Saare ishq ki chhaaon chale chhainyya chhainya
Paaon jannat chale chale chal chhainyya chhainyya

And

Jin ke sar ho ishq ki chhaaon
Paaon ke neeche jannat hogi

They both mean the same, that those who live under the shade of such an ishq, heaven/paradise is theirs.

Remembering Jalaluddin Rumi and his philosophy is eventually justified by Gulzar sahab’s this master piece. Maybe the quote is the wrong one, the correct one is this:

“There is no salvation for the soul but to fall in love. Only lovers can escape out of these two worlds.” – Rumi

I have been thinking for sometime now that there so many iconic songs composed by ARR, that a garland or a necklace of these gems can be made. So I have chosen myself to do this series. The first episode is this song, starting on the birthday of ARR. I have done a few posts of his songs in the blog earlier for songs of ‘lagan’ ‘zubieda’ ‘sapney’ etc. This is by far an ambitious series for me to undertake, as it is very difficult to fit theses gems in a particular form to complete a cohesive design of the necklace. I will play by the ear, and God willing try to complete this series in 2022.

Hullo Atuldom

It is winter and the temperatures in Bangalore and adjoining regions have taken a dip. I am sure North India will be much colder, I don’t know what is the experience of those in western and eastern India. But then, winter is the feature for the entire Northern hemisphere at this time of the year.

We have categories on the blog, that songs are tagged under. The Category “Rain” and “Saawan” have around 86 and 109 posts/ songs respectively. “Saawan” is used to talk of rains and is also the month in the Hindu calendar, when the Indian sub-continent experiences heavy monsoon rains.

In sharp contrast we have only 2 posts for “Summer” category and 5 for the “Snowy Mountain” category. No separate category for winter, cold winds etc. Does that mean that there are no songs in Hindi films that are filmed in winter, when the cold winds blow etc.? No. I recall songs from “Junglee”, “Kasmir Ki Kali”, “Aap Ki Kasam” and hundreds of other films that have ever-so-popular songs that were filmed on the snowy slopes of the many hill-stations that the Himalayan range offers. But when songs from these movies were being posted on the blog, in the infancy stages of the blog i.e., Atulji may not have thought of this particular category; if he had, then this category would have had lots of songs. Today’s song will fit the bill for “Snowy Mountain”.

This song is from the 1992 release, Mani Ratnam directed and K. Balachander produced “Roja”. It had a cast of Pankaj Kapur, Madhoo (billed as Madhubala), Arvind Swamy, and a whole lot of South Indian actors. This is because “Roja” was made in Tamil and later its dubbed versions were released in other languages. The movie had some melodious songs that were written by Vairamuthu (in the Tamil original) and P.K.Mishra (for the Hindi dubbed version). The playback singers used (in Hindi) were Hariharan, Minmini, Sujatha Mohan, Shweta Rao, Baba Sehgal, S.P. Balasubramaniam, KS Chitra. The music director was A R Rehman.

“Roja” was the story of a gritty- young lady. The lady, Roja (Madhoo) is married to a man who was selected as a prospective groom for her older sister. But the to-be-groom (Rishi) takes a liking for Roja. She agrees to the marriage after getting to know that her older sister is happy that she was rejected (she had her heart set on marrying another guy). Roja settles in her husband’s (Arvind Swamy) home when she gets to know that he has been selected to go on deputation to Jammu-Kashmir for helping the army communication center with military intelligence. The young couple find themselves in alien yet beautiful land. Roja’s life turns upside-down when her husband is abducted by Kashmiri terrorists demanding the release of a leader of their’s in exchange. The movie shows how Roja runs from pillar-to-post to get assistance in rescuing her husband, specially when she has a language problem too- she can communicate only in Tamil. (This part got diluted in the Hindi-dubbed version though).

The song with this post happens when the young couple- Roja and Rishi- are exploring the snow clad Baramulla, and honeymooning. It is in the voices of SPB sir and K S Chitra.
The Tamil version of the song was sung by Sujatha Mohan and Unni Menon.

With this post we are wishing the music director, singer, Oscar-award winner A R Rehman on turning a year older today. In addition to the Oscars he has a few Filmfare and National awards to his name. Plus the government of India has conferred the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan on Rehman. We wish him health and happiness and hope to have lots of great music from him.


Song-Ye haseen waadiyaan ye khula aasmaan (Roja)(1992) Singers-K S Chitra, S P Balasubrahmaniam, Lyrics-P K Mishra, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics

yeh haseen waadiyaan

tere hontho pe hai husn ki bijliyaan
tere gaalon pe hai zulf ki badliyaan
tere baalon ki khushboo se mehke chaman
sangmarmar ke jaisa yeh tera badan

mere jaanejaan yeh hai teri chaandni
chhed do tum aaj koi pyaar ki raagini
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna

yeh bandhan hai pyaar ka
dekho toote na sajni

yeh janmon ka saath hai
dekho chhoote na sajna
tere aanchal ki chhaanv ke taley
meri manzil mujhe mil gayi

teri palkon ki chhaanv ke taley
mohabbat mujhe mil gayi
yeh haseen vaadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna
in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo miley
har khushi mil gayi

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna

jee karta hai saajna
dil mein tumko bithha loon
aa masti ki raat mein
apna tumko bana loon

uthne lage hain toofaan kyon
mere seene mein ae sanam
tumhen chaahoonga dil o jaan se
meri jaane jaan teri kasam

yeh haseen waadiyaan yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahaan
ai mere jaanejaan

in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo miley
har khushi mil gayi

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

Time for a yearly roundup!!!! 2021 coming to a close. 2022 just a sunrise away. Hope we have different experiences in 2022, experiences that make us glad and bring a smile to our lips which stays the whole year.

I am sure Atulji or Sudhirji or one of the other blog-contributors, who have the patience to go through the statistics etc., will give us a table of how many new movies debuted on the blog in 2021, and other related info about which date saw how many posts etc. But the best that happened this year, IMO, is the series that Atulji undertook to enlist all the movies, music directors etc that Lata Mangeshkar was associated with in her looonnngg career.

On the way out of 2021 here is a song from the 1993 release “Shatranj”. A movie that I saw at the time of its release on cable TV, before the Satellite TV Tsunami hit us. It was produced by Arun S. Thakur, directed by Aziz Sejawal, had music by Anand Milind, and Sameer was the lyricist. S P Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Jolly Mukherjee, Kumar Sanu, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jayshree (popular as Bombay Jayshri in classical music circles), Poornima, Sadhana Sargam (i.e. all the good singers of the 90s) were used in the movie.

Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of the movie which begins like “Chalti ka Naam Gaadi” (CKNG) which means we have three brothers -bachelors- who are reared by the eldest brother Dharamraj (Kadar Khan), the other two brothers being Dino and Dinky (Jackie and Mithun). The eldest brother has a problem with the female gender of the populace (like Ashok Kumar in CKNG), the other two don’t have any such issues and Renu & Radha (Divya Bharaati and Juhi Chawla) are their girl friends. Then there is a female called Rosie (Jamuna who appeared in a few films in the 80s and 90s, not much is known about her) who is shown to like the elder brother Dharamraj since childhood (Sarfaraz Khan, Kadar Khan’s own son played the younger Dharamraj). The reason for Dharamraj’s problem with females is shown as his step-mother who was nasty to him and his brothers as children.

The story has the necessary villain in the character of Prajapati (Kiran Kumar) the manager to the brothers’ father’s (Vikas Anand) business and also his killer. He is cheating the brothers’s step-mother and step-brother (Shakti Kapoor) and using their business as a front for his illegal activities (what else). The brothers have some misunderstandings with Dharamraj when Renu & Radha enter their lives, which get resolved; then the hard-feelings towards the step-family also is sorted out and the cause of all the problems in their lives (Prajapati) is brought to his logical end. And then “The End”.

Oh I forgot to mention a few more tributes that the movie paid to CKNG. CKNG had ‘Mohan Garage’ here the brothers have ‘Dharam Garage’. There was a ‘car’ in CKNG even this movie had a ‘car’ important to the story. CKNG begins with a song on the pet car, this one too begins with a song on the car. Additionally the brothers have a pet Monkey/ Chimpanzee. So let us have the movie debuting on the blog with the film-opening song that shows us the bonding between the brothers. This song is in the voices of SPB, Abhijeet and Udit Narayan.

There used to be a show called ‘Superhit Muqabla’ on Doordarshan Metro of those years (28 years back) which was on the lines of the legendary Binaca Geetmala. The show used to retire songs from the list of popular songs, which were complied based on vinyl records and cassette sales & and viewership of the show as such, after a 25 week run to make place for newer songs, very much like Binaca Geetmala. And songs of “Shatranj” (1993) were on this show for many weeks.

With this song we also say thank you to the entertainer Kadar Khan who left us today, in 2018, in Canada, where he was staying with his sons following his retirement from Bollywood. His last release was ‘Hogaya Dimaagh ka Dahi” in 2015 October (after a gap of seven years when ‘Mehbooba’ and ‘Deshdrohi’ released). He was a recipient of three Filmfare awards viz:

Best Dialogue for “Meri Awaz Suno” in 1982.

Best Comedian for “Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri” in 1991.

Best Dialogue (again) for “Angaar” in 1993.

He was conferred the Padma Shri, posthumously in 2019 by the Government of India.

He was 81 when he passed away.

Blog Day :

This day that year 50 years ago.

4 dec 1971

We are into 2021. 1971 was exactly 50 years ago. How many of us are aware that the calenders of the two years are identical ! The calender of 1971 can be used in 2021 as well !

It was on the midnight on 3/4 december 2021 that Mrs Indira Gandhi, then Indian prime minister addressed the Indian public on radio. It was a national emergency that is why this address to the nation was at that unearthly hour. At around 5:30 PM, Pakistan Air Force had launched a pre emptive attack on Indian air force bases located on the west. They bombed 12 air bases in not one or two waves, but in three waves throughout the evening and night.

Mrs Gandhi had addressed the nation to inform Indians that Pakistan had attacked India and so India now had to face the aggression.

This address to the nation was made first in English and then in Hindi. It is available on youtube.

The full address was

I speak to you at a moment of grave peril to our country and our people. Some hours ago, soon after 5:30 P.M. on Dec. 3, Pakistan launched full scale war against us.

The Pakistan Air Force suddenly struck at our airfields in Amritsar, Pathankot, Srinagar, Avantipur, Utterlai, Jodhpur, Ambala and Agra.

Their ground forces are shelling our defense positions in Sulemankhi, Khemkaran, Poonch and other sectors.

Since last March we have borne the heaviest of burdens and withstood the greatest of pressure and a tremendous effort to urge the world to help in bringing about peaceful solution, in preventing annihilation of an entire people whose only crime was to vote democratically.

But the world ignored the basic causes and concerned itself only with certain repercussions.

The situation was bound to deteriorate, and the courageous band of freedom fighters have been staking their all in defense of the values for which we also have struggled and which are basic to our way of life.

Today, the war in Bangla Desh has become a war on India, and this imposes upon me, my Government and the people of India an awesome responsibility. We have no other option but to put our country on a war footing. Our brave officers and jawans are at their posts, mobilized for the defense of the country. Emergency has been declared for the whole of India. Every necessary step is being taken, and we are prepared for any eventualities.

I have no doubt that it is the united will of our people that this wanton and unprovoked aggression of Pakistan should be decisively and finally repelled. In this resolve, the Government is assured of the full and unflinching support of all political parties and every Indian citizen.

We must be prepared for a long period of hardship and sacrifice. We are a peaceloving people, but we know that peace cannot last if we do not guard our freedom, our democracy and our way of life. So today we fight, not merely for territorial integrity, but for the basic ideals which have given strength to this country, and in this alone we can progress to a better future. Aggression must be met and the people of India will meet it with fortitude and determination, with discipline and the utmost unity.

Pakistan think tank had drawn inspiration from Israel’s strategy during 1967 Israel-Arab 6 days war when Israel Air Force, in “operation Focus” had destroyed all air bases of their enemy nations (Egypt, Syria and Jordan) and rendered their airbases and aircrafts useless in a pre emptive air raid. In all, 450 aircrafts were destroyed. 18 Egyptian airfields were destroyed in a matter of hours on 5 june 1967.

Pakistani operation drew inspiration from Israel’s “operation Focus”. Pakistani operation was code named “Operation Chenghiz Khan” and it was launched at 5:30 PM IST on 3 december 1971, which, like in 2021 was a friday.

Pakistan, unlike Israel, failed to inflict any serious damage, despite attacking as many as 12 air force bases, that too in three waves. Unlike Egypt, Syria and Jordan, whose Air forces were rendered useless, Indian Air Force were able to launch its counterattack almost immediately.

As Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi prepared to addressed the nation on radio shortly after midnight informing about the Pakistani attack, the Indian Air Force had already struck back. By 21:00hrs, the Canberras of the No.35 Squadron and No.106 Squadron, as well as No.5 and No.16 squadron were armed and ready for their foray deep into Pakistan. These flew against eight Western Pakistani airbases: Murid, Mianwali, Sargodha, Chandhar, Risalewala, Rafiqui, and Masroor. In total, 23 combat sorties were launched that night, inflicting heavy damage to Sargodha and Masroor airbases. The PAF units stationed on these airfields had to operate from taxiways for the following two days.

Through the night the Indian Air Force also struck the main East Pakistani airfields of Tejgaon, and later Kurmitola. At the same time, the Indian Air Force was deploying additional aircraft to its forward airfields for the strikes that were to follow the next morning. Within days, India was able to achieve air superiority.

So, unlike the result of “Operation Focus” for Israel, “Operation Chengiz Khan” proved counterproductive for Pakistan. Of its stated objectives, the PAF was unable to neutralize the Indian Air Force in the west, which on its part had dispersed its aircraft in hardened aircraft shelters, suffering only minor damage to a few aircraft.

Newsweek magazine (1971) described the attack as :

Trying to catch the Indian Air Force napping, Yahya Khan, launched a Pakistani version of Israel’s 1967 air blitz in hopes that one rapid attack would cripple India’s far superior air power. But India was alert, Pakistani pilots were inept, and Yahya’s strategy of scattering his thin air force over a dozen air fields was a bust!

When Indian retaliation came, it was not just from air force, but from navy and army as well. It is something that the Pakistani arm chair generals may not have anticipated while living in delusion and planning “Operation Chenghiz Khan”.

It was not Indian Air Force, but Indian Navy that hit Pakistan where it hurt them the most.

The Port of Karachi housed the headquarters of the Pakistan Navy and almost its entire fleet was based in Karachi Harbour. Since Karachi was also the hub of Pakistan’s maritime trade, a blockade would be disastrous for Pakistan’s economy. The security of Karachi Harbour was predominant to the Pakistani High Command and it was heavily defended against any air or naval strikes. The port’s airspace was secured by the strike aircraft based at airfields in the area.

On 4 December, Karachi Strike Group was formed by Indian navy. It consisted of the three Vidyut-class missile boats: INS Nipat, INS Nirghat and INS Veer, each armed with four Soviet made SS-N-2B Styx surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 40 nautical miles (74 km), two Arnala-class anti-submarine corvettes: INS Kiltan and INS Katchall, and a fleet tanker, INS Poshak. The group was under the command of Commander Babru Bhan Yadav, the commanding officer of the 25th Missile Boat Squadron.

As planned, on 4 December, the strike group reached 250 nautical miles (460 km) south off the coast of Karachi, and maintained its position during the day, outside the surveillance range of the Pakistan Air Force. As Pakistani aircraft did not possess night-bombing capabilities, it was planned that the attack would take place between dusk and dawn. At 10.30 pm Pakistan Standard Time , the Indian task group moved 180 nautical miles (330 km ) from its position towards the south of Karachi. Soon Pakistani targets, identified as warships, were detected 70 nmi (130 km) to the northwest and northeast of the Indian warships.

INS Nirghat drove forward in a northwesterly direction and fired its first Styx missile at PNS Khaibar, a Pakistani Battle-class destroyer. Khaibar, assuming it was a missile from Indian aircraft, engaged its anti-aircraft systems. The missile hit the right side of the ship, exploding below the galley in the electrician’s mess deck at 10.45 pm . This led to an explosion in the first boiler room. Subsequently, the ship lost propulsion, and was flooded with smoke. An emergency signal that read: “Enemy aircraft attacked in position 020 FF 20. No. 1 boiler hit. Ship stopped”, was sent to Pakistan Naval Headquarters (PNHQ). Due to the chaos created by the explosion, the signal contained the wrong coordinates of the ship’s position. This delayed rescue teams from reaching its location. Observing that the ship was still afloat, Nirghat fired its second missile hitting Khaibar in the second boiler room on the ship’s starboard side, eventually sinking the ship and killing 222 sailors.

After verifying two targets in the area northwest of Karachi, at 11.00 pm (PKT), INS Nipat fired two Styx missiles – one each at cargo vessel MV Venus Challenger(Coming from Saigon and carrying American arms and ammunition for Pakistan army) and its escort PNS Shah Jahan, a C-class destroyer. Venus Challenger, carrying ammunition for the Pakistani forces, exploded immediately after the missile hit, and eventually sank 23 nmi (43 km) south of Karachi. The other missile targeted Shah Jahan and damaged the ship very badly. At 11.20 pm (PKT), PNS Muhafiz, an Adjutant-class minesweeper, was targeted by INS Veer. A missile was fired and Muhafiz was struck on the left side, behind the bridge. It sank immediately before it could send a signal to the PNHQ, killing 33 sailors.

Meanwhile, INS Nipat continued towards Karachi and targeted the Kemari oil storage tanks, placing itself 14 nmi (26 km) south of the Karachi harbour. Two missiles were launched; one misfired, but the other hit the oil tanks, which burned and were destroyed completely, causing a Pakistani fuel shortage. The task force returned to the nearest Indian ports.

Soon the PNHQ deployed rescue teams on patrol vessels to recover the survivors of Khaibar. As Muhafiz sank before it could transmit a distress call, the Pakistanis only learned of its fate from its few survivors who were recovered when a patrol vessel steered towards the ship’s burning flotsam.

The operation was carried for 90 minutes, which resulted in the firing of six missiles by Indian Navy that destroyed four enemy vessels. This day saw the first use of anti-ship missiles in combat in the region.

Pakistan lost a minesweeper, a destroyer, a cargo vessel carrying ammunition, and fuel storage tanks in Karachi. Another destroyer was also badly damaged and eventually scrapped.

In retaliation, Pakistan air force launched an attack on Okha Port. Indians had anticipated this attack and so they had removed all naval ships from Okha. PAF ended up damaging fuelling facilities for missile boats, an ammunition dump, and the missile boats’ jetty.

These damages delayed the next attack of Indian navy by three days. The next attack on Karachi port was launched three days later. This operation was code named “Operation Python”.

Though the Indian Navy had strategic victory with Operation Trident, its main target, the oil storage facilities in Karachi were still operational as only one of the two missiles fired had hit them. This failure was later assessed as the result of confusion created between the commanding officers of the three missile boats. Furthermore, the Indians mistook tracer fire from the coastal artillery of Karachi as originating from Pakistani aircraft and retreated hurriedly before they could properly target the tanks.

On the night of 8/9 December 1971, at 10:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time (PKT), in rough seas, a small strike group consisting of the missile boat INS Vinash, equipped with four Styx missiles, and two multipurpose frigates, INS Talwar and INS Trishul, approached Manora, a peninsula south of the Port of Karachi. During their voyage, a Pakistani patrol vessel was encountered and sunk. The Indian Navy’s official historian, Vice Admiral Hiranandani in his book Transition to Triumph, mentioned that while the group approached Karachi, Trishul’s electronic surveillance revealed that the radar there had stopped rotating and was directed straight at the group, confirming that it had been detected.

Around 11.00 pm (PKT), the group detected a batch of ships at a distance of 12 nmi (22 km). Vinash immediately fired all four of its missiles, the first of which struck the fuel tanks at the Kemari Oil Farm causing a heavy explosion. Another missile hit and sank the Panamanian fuel tanker SS Gulf Star. The third and fourth missiles hit the Pakistani Navy fleet tanker PNS Dacca and the British merchant vessel SS Harmattan. Dacca was damaged beyond repair, while Harmattan sank. As Vinash had now expended all of its missiles, the group immediately withdrew to the nearest Indian port.

Between Operations Trident and Python, and the Indian Air Force attacks on Karachi’s fuel and ammunition depots, more than fifty percent of the total fuel requirement of the Karachi zone was reported to have been destroyed. The result was a crippling economic blow to Pakistan. The damage was estimated to be worth $3 billion, with most of the oil reserves and ammunition warehouses and workshops destroyed. The Pakistan Air Force was also affected by the loss of fuel.

The Pakistani High Command ordered ships to reduce their ammunition dumps so as to reduce the explosion damage if hit. The ships were also ordered not to manoeuvre out at sea, especially during the night, unless ordered to do so. These two measures severely demoralized Pakistani naval crews. With the destruction caused by the Indian Navy, neutral merchant vessels soon started to seek safe passage from the Indian authorities before heading to Karachi. Gradually, neutral ships ceased sailing for Karachi. In effect, a de facto naval blockade was created by the Indian Navy.

As a result of these two operations, Karachi port was rendered unuseable.

So, Pakistan’s attempt to neutralise Indian Air Force in the west resulted in Pakistan navy and Pakistan maritime activity in the west getting neutralised. !

Navy operations do not receive the same coverage as air force operations and army operations, but these navy operations decisively swung the balance Indian way, and the ability of Pakistan to send and receive materials by sea route was absolutely crippled. Air route was in any case out of question. The two parts of Pakistan were physically cut of from each other.

This day 4 december 1971 was a big feather in the cap of Indian Navy. From that day onwards, this day is celebrated in India as Indian Navy day.

So today is the Indian Navy day. Let us hail Indian Military in general and Indian Navy in particular, whose swift retaliation on this this day 50 years ago quickly put paid to Pakistani evil designs of doing an Israel on India. When the dust settled, Pakistan had ended up getting dismembered, losing East Pakistan in the process. From that war onwards Pakistan army has not dared to enter into another war with India.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Border”(1997). This song is a befitting song for the occasion, seeing that the movie itself was based on 1971 war. This song in particular fits the Indian mood perfectly as it would have been on this day 50 years ago.

Hullo Atuldom

26th Ocotober is a day when we wish the first Follower of the blog Rajaji on turning a year younger. He is the ‘yaaron-ka-yaar’ who is currently off the radar. Hope he marks his presence on the blog and reads this post. He is not a kanjoos (and I have a whole set of the followers of the blog who will endorse my statement) and will not shy away from giving us a treat by saying a “Hello”. Actually, I sincerely hope he is fine, the last post by him, as a guest contributor, was on 8th March 2021- for the birth centenary of his favourite lyricist/ poet Sahir Ludhianvi.

Our Rajaji was one of the first to see posts on Atulsongaday. One of the first to post his Farmaish to Atulji. And if I am not wrong, one of the first guest contributors as lyrics contributor in April 2009 with this post of a song from ‘Bin Baadal Barsaat’ . His first full-length post was Teri umar naadaan hai on 26 june 2010 from “Aankhon Aankhon Mein”(1972) and since then he has been a regular contributor and loves to write about Rajesh Khanna, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar and of course Sahir Ludhianvi. In the interim he has also written posts on some artistes whose work he appreciates. Here is wishing this friendly Atulite all health and happiness and waiting for his next post- essay, novel or short story anything but in your unique style Rajaji.

26th October also happens to be the birth date of an actress (don’t like to use the adjective yesteryear for this one, too young for that) who was known to be cast in the roles of typical heroine i.e. one emotional scene, two haughty scenes, three or four duets or solos and that is about it. There is a period in every actress’s career when she reaches the top-spot doing this kind of inane roles. Then she tires of it and tries to break the shackles and get cast in some roles that gives her chance to show her emoting and acting capabilities.

Today’s birthday girl made her Bollywood debut as Salman Khan’s heroine in ‘Patthar Ke Phool’ went on to co-star with all the biggies of that era and reaching heights of popularity as the ‘mast mast’ girl in ‘Mohra’ She was ready to give it all up sometime in 1995 for the sake of family and marriage. But when things didn’t work out the way she expected them to, she made a successful comeback with movies opposite Govinda which were from the David Dhawan stable. She played meaningful or non-glamourous characters in movies like “Shool” (1999) “Daman” (2002) “Satta” (2005) and “Jaago” in 2004 where she played the mother of a ten-year-old gang-rape-victim who dies in front of her.
Do I need mention the name of the actress- Raveena Tandon? She finally took a hiatus from acting after marriage and kids (as per her original plan for life) and has four children two of whom she adopted when the girls were 11 and 8 and she herself was only 21.

I may not call myself her fan but I like this actress for her sprightly acting, Today’s song is from the 1997 crime -drama “Ghulam-e-Mustafa” which was directed by Partho Ghosh and had a cast headed by Nana Patekar and Raveena Tandon played a night club dancer who falls in love with Mustafa (Nana Patekar) on hearing his life story. They even get married and have a happy life, which is short lived as Kavitha (Raveena) gets killed in a car bomb explosion which was meant for Abba (Paresh Rawal). The cast also included Ravi Behl, Aruna Irani, Keerthi Chawla, Shivaji Satam, Sulabha Deshpande, Mohan Joshi, Mohnish Bahl etc. Rajesh Roshan and Amar Haldipur were the music directors, and the song with this post has been credited to Anand Bakshi. Myswar.com says that Amar Haldipur was responsible for the background score.

This songs sees our birthday girl Raveena Tandon as a new bride out for a joy trip when their Gypsy breaks down, of course I need not explain the visuals of the song and will just say that she dies after this.

I would also like to wish the daughter of an Atulite on her birthday today. Hope this message is conveyed to your little girl and wish her all the best for her future.
Once more wishing all the best and happy birthday to our Rajaji, the little one of our Atulite and Raveena Tandon.

Hullo Atuldom

10th October is the birth date of the ageless Bollywood Diva Bhanurekha Ganesan.

I don’t remember which was my first post on the blog on her birthday, but over the last few years I have been trying to write out a song and present her with an actor who was not one of her regular heroes; meaning someone except Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra etc. Today’s song is also one such song.

This song is from the 2000 release “Bulandi” which was directed by T. Rama Rao. It had a cast of Rajnikanth (special appearance), Anil Kapoor, Harish (from South Indian films), and Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Aruna Irani along with Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal, Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting cast. Songs of the movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Viju Shah. The playback singers used were Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Jaspinder Narula, Sukhwinder Singh, Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik -in short all the popular singers of the 90s.

The movie was the tale of a family of Zamindars which is headed by Rajnikanth who has a sister -Aruna Irani and three sons Anil Kapoor (double role plays two brothers) and Harish Kumar. Rekha plays the zamindar’s elder daughter-in-law who is the bhabhi-maa to her devars. And here I would like to mention that the two Anil Kapoors are not twins. Today’s song happens at the girl’s family meeting the boy’s family ritual and the older Anil Kapoor is the groom-to be. Aruna Irani the would-be atyaa (paternal aunt) starts the song as cue to the coy Bride-to-be who then begins singing and also fantasizing about her hubsand married life etc
There have been many instances when big a star/ actor accepts a role in a film because the main actor/ character is being enacted by a senior star/actor of whom the junior is a fan. Like for example, Amitabh Bachchan played Dilip Kumar’s son in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti”. Similarly Rekha played miniscule role in one of Dev Anand’s final movie, “Censor” and also one of Manoj Kumar’s last directorial.

Anil Kapoor did a second rung character in this film as he was sharing screen space with a senior (workwise)-Rekha. And the dance that accompanies sees Rekha and Anil Kapoor matching each other decently well. It is only recently I found out that there is just two year age gap between these two actors but one began working in 1966 (age 12) when the other might have been in school and not even given a thought to what career to pursue. That must be one of the reason why the viewer may feel that Anil Kapoor was acting with a much senior actress, she was a senior only because she was already in the entertainment business for 14 years before Anil made his debut.

The singers for this song are Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.

Happy birthday to Rekha. May we keep seeing her on the silver screen.

With that song, all the Lata songs of that one movie (viz one song) has been covered. That leaves us with one movie of 2000 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar sons for discusussion.

This movie is “Mohabbatein”(2000). This movie was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Aditya Chopra for Yashraj Films, Mumbai. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty,Jimmy Shergill, Priti Jhangiani, Jugal Hansraj, Kim Sharma, Archana Puran Singh, Anupam Kher, Raman Lamba, Ram Mohan, Helen, Saurabh Shukla, Amrish Puri, Shefali Shah, Prazan Dastur, Rushad Rana, Mehul Nisar, Geri Andrade,Navneet nishan, Priya Gill ,Manjit Kular,Harpal Singh Pali, Sitaram,Meghna Patel, Palash Dutta etc in it.

Here is a song from “Mohabbatein”(2000). This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Udit Narayan. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jatin Lalit.

The song is picturised on Aishwarya Rai and Shahrukh Khan. The song has a second part too that gets played towards the end of the song, where others, including Amitabh Bachchan is also visible.

So this song can be considered as a two part song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Pukaar” (2000) was a Rajkumar Santoshi directed and Surinder Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, and Bharat Shah production. It had dialogues and screenplay by Anjum Rajabali and Rajkumar Santoshi, lyricists were Majrooh Sultanpuri (who wrote four songs) and Javed Akhtar (wrote two songs). A R Rehman was the music director. The cast was headed by Madhuri Dixit, Namrata Shirodkar, Anil Kapoor; Farida Jalal, Girish Karnad, Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Danny, Rohini Hattangadi, K D Chandran, Anjan Shrivastav, Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Rishi etc. in supporting roles. There was a surprise element in the cast, which I shall get to later in the post.

The movie was a fictional account of the terrorist problems plaguing India. We had Anil Kapoor playing Major Jaidev Rajvansh and Farida Jalal and Girish Karnad played his parents. Major Jaidev has Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) as his childhood friend who has been in love with him forever. The Major and his fellow officers manage to rescue a leading politician and also capture the terrorist (Abhrush played by Danny) who has masterminded the kidnapping of the politician (Govind Namdeo).

The movie had all the masala needed for calling itself a patriotic movie- terrorist (supposedly from Pakistan), corrupt politician, men in uniform who go beyond their prescribed calling in tracing/tracking the terrorist in spite of being severely wounded or even dying in the melee. The whole movie is set in some picturesque hill-town which has a colonial Town Hall where the climax takes place. The terrorists decide to blow up the town hall and its clock tower with the help of time-bombs and our severely wounded hero with his highly repentant girl friend (why the girl is repentant can be understood if one sees the movie)- who are both tied to structure- have all the time duration of the song/ event being held in the premises of the Town Hall to discover and deactivate the bombs.

We are having the song that is being staged during the climax with this post. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. On screen the person lip-syncing the song is Lata Mangeshkar herself (the surprise element that I wrote about earlier). I was awed when I saw the song for the first time ever all those years back – 21 years back to be exact. She was only 71 then. The song has The Lata Mangeshkar playing herself and singing this plaintive appeal to end all violence. She appears in her trademark saree with a group of kids who also emote the song rather well. We can see Girish Karnad and Farida Jalal in the audience and Danny stealthily making his way into the premises using forged ID card.

We all know that Lata didi (as the whole entertainment industry addresses her) had faced the camera at the beginning of her career. Recently I received this video of a Marathi song where she appears with her sisters in the group of children singing at a party. Our blog also has the first ever song in Hindi which was for the marathi movie “Gaja Bhaau” (1943).

Same date, last year, Atulji has taken up the daunting task of trying to list every single Hindi movie where Lata Mangeshkar has even ‘hummed’ a line. That series was kicked off with this post. That is material for about 64 posts and at the rate of one-post per week we reached post number 53 this Monday, the series kick started on her birthday, last year.

I may not be a huge fan of this “Bharat Ratna”, but I always try to sing her songs and admire the way she modulates her voice to suit the situation, actor and emotion of the song. I love many of the songs she has sung but will not sit to enlist them here.

Me, with my feeling of being a candle in front of such a huge personality, also try to send a post/song to wish this Nightingale lots of good health and cheer.

Song-Ek tu hi bharosa ek tu hi sahaara (Pukaar)(2000) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, Md-A R Rahman

Lyrics

aa jaao ki sab mil ke
rab se duaa maangen
jeevan mein sukoon chaahen
chaahat mein wafaa maangen aen
haalaat badalne mein
ab der na ho maalik
jo de chuke phir le
andher na ho maalik

ek tu hi bharosa
ek tu hi sahaara
iss tere jahaan mein
nahin koi hamaara
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sun le
hey ishwar yaa allaah hey daata
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sunle
hey ishwar yaa allaah hey daata

hamse naa dekha jaaye
barabaadiyon kaa samaa
ujadi hui basti mein
ye tadap rahe insaan
hamse naa dekha jaaye
barabaadiyon kaa samaan
ujadi hui basti mein
ye tadap rahe insaan

nanhe jismon ke tukde
liye khadi hai ek maa
baarood ke dhuven mein
tu hi bol jaaye kaha
ek tu hi bharosa
ek tu hi sahaara
iss tere jahaan mein
nahin koi hamaara
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sunle
hey ishwar yaa allaah hey daataa
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sunle
hey ishwar yaa allaah he daataa

naadaan hain ham toh maalik
kyun di hamein ye sazaa
yaa hai sabhi ke dil mein
nafrat kaa zehar bhara
naadaan hain ham toh maalik
kyun di hamein ye sazaa
yaa hai sabhi ke dil mein
nafrat kaa zehar bhara

inhen phir se yaad dilaa de
sabak wohi pyaar ka
ban jaaye gulshan phir se
kaanton bhari duniya
ek tu hi bharosa,
ek tu hi sahaara
iss tere jahaan mein
nahin koi hamaara
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sunle
hey ishwar yaa allaah hey daataa
hey ishwar yaa allaah ye pukaar sunle
hey ishwar yaa allaah hey daata

This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Udit Narayan, Vinod Rathod and chorus. Dev Kohli is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Laxman.

Only the audio of the song seems to available. A video (apparently fake) is in circulation, so that does not count.

The audio is more than ten minutes long. Prakashchandra, who sent the lyrics as well as other details, guesses that this song was picturised on Deepti Bhatnagar, Faraaz Khan(Late) and Vishwajeet Pradhan.
PS;THe video, whose link was pointed out by Mahesh Mamadapur, shows that the song is picturised on Deepti Bhatnagar and Faraaz Khan.

With this song, the movie makes it’s debut in the blog.

It can be seen from the table of 1998 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 11 songs in 4 movies released in 1998.

Two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1998 have been covered in the blog. All songs from one movie “Dil Se”(1998)- a grand total of one Lata Mangeshkar solo song, has been covered in the blog. So 9 songs from 3 movies of 1998 sung by Lata Mangeshkar are yet to be covered in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dushman”(1998) is the first movie of 1998 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dushman”(1998) was inspired from Hollywood movie “Eye for an eye”(1996). It was produced by Pooja Bhatt and directed by Tanuja Chandra for Pooja Bhatt Productions, Bombay. The movie had Kajol(in dual/double role), Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, Tanvi Azmi, Jas Arora,Pramod Moutho, Kunal Khemu, Pratima Kazmi, Anupam Shyam,Vani Tripathi, Amardeep Jha, Rahul Singh, Vishesh, Sanjeev Vatsa,Robin Bhatt, Pinky Singh, Omkar Singh, Baby Varsha, Naresh suri,Master Vishal,Dinesh Chaturvedi,Krishna Bhatt, Savita Karle, Varsha Lalwani, Javed Rizvi, Narendra Sachar etc in it.

The movie had 9 songs in it. Five of these songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in it.

One song (a Lata Mangeshkar duet song) has been covered in the past.

Here is another song from the movie. It is a multiple version song. Female version is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and male version by Jagjit Singh. Male version also has humming by Lata Mangeshkar, so it can even be considered a duet. In case we consider a duet then it would become the first ever Lata-Jagjit Singh duet in Hindi movies. Here I have considered it as a duet.

Lata Mangeshkar version is a background song which is picturised on Tanvi Azmi, Kajol, Baby Varsha, Jas Arora etc.

Only audio of the Jagjit Singh (with Lata Mangeshkar humming) is available.

Lyrics and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
