My Railway Related Reminiscences – 1
——————————————————————————————

When I look back into days gone by, I find that my recollections of the past can be divided neatly into decades. I have vague recollections of 1960s as I was quite young in that decade. 1970s is the decade that I recall most vividly as well as most fondly as I was as my precocious best in this decade, being in my teens in this decade.

I find that my recollections of subsequent decades are rather more vague. I can tell you what I was doing in 1975, but I do not have similar vivid recollections of 1985, 1995 or even 2005 !

The above applies to my recollections on Hindi movies and HFM as well. I cannot recall even one Hindi movie song of 2005 or 2015 if my life dwepended on it, but I can readily recollect dozens of songs of 1975.

Since our younger regulars never tire of reminding us that good songs were created in 1990s and later as well, I thought that I should try and discuss some songs from those years even though my recollections of those days are not as vivid as my recollections of 1970s. 🙂

Much of my 1980s was spent in my “higher” education. From 1990s onwards, I found myself posted in various parts of the country.

My initial postings were in South, in what was South Central Railway, with its HQ at Secunderabad. My initial days there were spent in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. My first posting was very much in that place. Later, I was posted at a small place in Marathwada called Purna.

I watched quite a few movies in Hyderabad/ Secunderabad. Those were Hindi movies, Telugu movies as well as English movies.

I was a firm believer that one should walk on foot in any new place wherever you wanted to go. That helped you familiarise yourself with various landmarks of the place. I applied my theory rigidly. I would walk six km daily from my residence to my workplace in the morning and then come back by walk in the evening. So I used to walk 12 km daily. 🙂

On weekends, I would plan to watch movies. I used to buy all the three English daily newspapers published in the city, namely Deccan Chronicle, Hindu and Indian Express. The three newspapers together form such a bulk that sometimes people would mistake me for a newspaper vendor. 🙂

I would look at the cinema hall ads to find which movies were playing in which movie halls. After identifying which movie to watch and where to watch, I would decide how to reach there.

It was sometime in 1991 or may be 1992 that I decided to go and watch “Phool Aur Kaante”(1991).

THe movie was playing in a movie hall in old city of Hyderabad. I stayed in Secunderabad near the Secunderabad Railway Stations at a distance of 15 km. How to reach there.

I boarded a local train from Secuderabad and reached Kacheguda Railway station. From there I walked towards old city, in the general direction of Hyderabad(aka Nampally) Railway station. I had a map of the twin city and I would consult it often to find locations of interest to me.

I kept walking on and on and came across old city, full of densely populated areas. I did not have to go Huderabad Railway station. The movie hall was somewhere in between Kacheguda and Hyderabad Railway stations.

I arrived the hall well in time so I had little difficulty buying a ticket for for matinee show. Now, show beginning at 3 PM is matinee show for me, as I was born and brought up in North India, but in Hyderabad, it was called first show there. I think it is still called first show in those parts.

That was not the only difference. What I knew as “cold” drink in north was called “cool” drink there. 🙂

I soon found lots of movie watchers arriving at the movie hall. Now, more than two decades later, I have read about the movie going audience of Hyderabad from our beloved inhouse encylopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh in many of his articles. Bulk of movie watchers who had gathered belonged to that kind. There were burkha nasheen females accompanied by lots of small kids. It was not as if this movie had a well known hero. This movie had debutants in lead roles. I wondered why all of them had so eagerly gathered to watch the movie where a newcomer was the hero.

The show began after some wait. It goes withot saying that bulk of movie watchers enjoyed the movie thorougly. I would have enjoyed this movie like them if I was two decades younger. But during these two decades, I had learnt thinks like “logical” thinking etc. I was applying logic on the movie and was not able to find much to enjoy. Now, the hero and heroine are college students. But they were hardly seen studying even for one minute. They would be seen singing dancing and romancing for the entire duration of the movie. Come on, how can one even get admitted to a decent college if all one does is teasing the female students and making passes on them. And in which college one finds females falling in love with the eve teaser. In real life India, such male students would get expelled from the college, and here in the movie he is being glorified. Moreover, how can such students even survive the academic rigours of college life ?

Moreover, I believe that one goes to college to study and not to romance. There is plenty of time and opportunity left in life in future for such romantic pursuits once you have successfully completed your studies and have become financially independent.

Conscientious movie watchers like me are in minority and no movie makers do any thing to appease movie goers like me. Movie makers merrily go on to make movies like this which are big hits at the box office and which are happily lapped up by simple minded movie goers.

I have covered one song from this movie in the past. That “past” happened to be 11 june 2009, viz exactly ten years ago. So, this movie becomes an ideal case of blog ten year challenge.

So here is the second song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) on this day viz 11 june 2019, exactly ten years after covering the first song of the movie in the blog. This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

This movie was produced by Dinesh Patel and directed by Kuku Kohli. This movie had Ajay Devgun, Madhoo, Amrish Puri, Raza Murad, Raghunath, Jagdeep, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Chatwal, Aruna Irani etc in it. The movie was the launch vehicle of Ajay Devgun. His stunt master father Veeru Devgun was behind the production of this movie.

Watch the picturisation of the song. The song is quite enjoyable to listen to and watch to in you can switch off your conscience and sensibilities. But I have great difficulty doing that.

Nevertheless, here is this song from “Phool Aur Kaante” (1991) which was hugely popular those days and continues to remain so till this day.

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019): Song number 21
—————————————————–

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Holi!

Some movies have a lot of memories attached to them. Yash Chopra’s “Chaandni” is one such movie. The year was 1989 and I had been to Mumbai (maayka) for my delivery. So, I had a lot of free time when I could interact with all my friends and neighbours like never before (and never have I had a similar opportunity too) 😉 that made that visit to Mumbai special. For those Atulites who know me- I had shifted out of Mumbai post marriage and so the term “visit to Mumbai”.

Getting back to “Chaandni” – those were the days when there were VCRs in many home and people used to rent Video Cassettes of movies which they couldn’t see in the theatres. I have seen a few movies in that way in the company of my neighbour’s family and more importantly their son. Their son was a year or two older to me so he was a mentor, guide, friend, idol and so many other things for me. To start off (as was the norm in those times) he was my Rakhi bro but we had a different equation between the two of us. He being my idol – I started liking Rekha- his favourite and he, on his part, made an effort to like Amitabh because he doted on me. Whatever love I have for physics, all branches of mathematics, and history is because I followed his way of studying them.

Oh, I again went away from Chaandni- so “Parinda” and “Chaandni” were the two movies the two of us saw back-to-back. “Chaandni” was a typical triangular love story. To start of it is a simple love story where the girl- Chaandni (Sridevi)- is wooed not-so-easily by the guy- Rohit (Rishi Kapoor). But the guys’ family has an issue with the alliance but accept it because their ‘only’ son is adamant. They go ahead have an engagement etc. But unfortunately, Rohit meets with an accident and is bound to a wheel chair. His family decides that this is the best time to humiliate the girl and so Rohit is forced to break-off the engagement so that the girl doesn’t have to face his family’s behaviour.

Now what does the girl do? She leaves Delhi, comes to Mumbai and lands a job in Lalit’s (Vinod Khanna) office. He is already pining for his dead wife when he falls in love with her, she takes some time to reciprocate though she is always civil to him and his mother. The next twist in the story comes when Lalit meets Rohit in Switzerland, where he has gone for business and Rohit has come for treatment. They become friends and decide that on returning to India they will introduce their respective girl friends and also marry on the same day etc. Isn’t that enough to twist the story further and make it a triangle?

As for the songs posted on the blog this date in 2009 – here they are

This will be the 7th song from “Chaandni” which had Shiv-Hari as music directors and Anand Bakshi as lyricist. I cannot keep myself from saying: Sridevi looks so pretty and baby-like in this song, actually she looks like a baby through the movie. This song is shot on the streets of Delhi or New Delhi. I would like it if the Dilliwale followers of the blog help in identifying the locations. It will be nice to know. 🙂

This song is also in memory of the aforementioned friend who loved to ape Rishi Kapoor and his sunglasses and sweaters. This friend was also a Dilliwala for a brief period of his life.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 19
————————————————

Today’s song that I am presenting here is a very special song for me as it is about Rajasthan, a place that I am quite fondly attached to thanks to my stay at Kota, Rajasthan.

I had considered this song under my series ‘Desh Ki Mitti Ki Khushboo’ earlier but that could not materialise.

When I took up this series, I though of discussing songs dealing with folklore, talk about folktales, folksongs, culture, traditions, customs of our Country, patriotic songs, songs be based on historical events and yes geographical settings of our country too.

Even songs based on art and crafts of our country, if any are suitable candidates for inclusion in this ‘Desh Ki Mitti Ki Khushboo’ series. So far three songs have been covered under that series and hopefully I will try to bring more in future.

Coming back to the song of this, it falls under another series namely ‘blog ten-year challenge(2009-2019)’.

Songs from following movies were posted ten years ago on 20.03.2009 on the blog;

‘Kaaliya-1981’
‘Manpasand-1980’
‘Sahib Bahadur-1977’
‘The Great Gambler-1979’
‘Lamhe-1991’
‘Shahjahan-1946’

Out of the abovementioned six movie half of them i.e. three have already been covered with all of their songs posted on the blog viz. ‘Kaaliya-1981’, ‘The Great Gambler-1979’ and ‘Shahjahan-1946’.

The other three movies thus ‘qualify’ for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’. Today I am presenting a song from ‘Lamhe-1991’.
I also like songs from ‘Manpasand’ and ‘Sahib Bahadur’ and wish I could have presented a song from each of them as well 🙂

***

My working life started at the age of 17, with a small company (Nagpur based), at Parli-Vaijnath (Marathwada-Maharashtra) at a Thermal Power Station. When the contract of this company was completed, my boss had ensured that I get a job in a Delhi based company, so that I could continue working and get settled in my professional life.

I have mentioned i in one of my earlier post that the first thing that came to mind on the mention of Delhi was that I will get to see Delhi and other places of our great country. It actually happened and I got the chance to visit New Delhi many times thereafter and travelled a lot to different places due to my postings and official work.

I was enjoying all the travel, even though they were sometime troublesome and uncomfortable, as I was interested in seeing important places of historical and other significance. I was also getting the opportunity to observe the rich historical and cultural heritage our country hase, observe people of diverse areas who spoke different dialects and followed different customs and traditions. That interest and enthusiasm continues even now and I think that I have yet to cover a lot of ground as far as visiting different places in India are concerned.

My first ‘out of Maharashtra’ posting was at the company work site at Kota, Rajasthan.

Here I would also like to mention that fortunately I got site postings at places which were nearer to a city e.g. Phulpur near Allahabad, Aonla near Bareilly etc.

On Nov 30th 1988 late evening, I landed at Kota and stayed there till 14th Aug 1996, when I left for Phulpur-Allahabad.

I have many fond memories of my stay at Kota (and would like to share them in future posts as possible, as they cannot be concluded in just one post here).

While I enjoyed my working life, I did my studies as wello and completed my graduation through IGNOU there.

During my stay there I was always on the lookout for opportunities to visit historical places and tourist destinations, and in the process would buy books on tourism, atlas, maps etc etc.

Though I visited some of them; still many places continue to remain on my wish list till today.

When I rummaged through my travel books in my collection, I came across a book titled ‘Paryatakon ka Swarg- Rajasthan’, which I think I must have bought around 1989-90. Though the date of purchase is not marked there, I find some interesting notes on the index page of this book.
The index page mentions fifteen important places, which have separate chapters in the book, containing pictures and information of these places.

Out of these, Chittorgarh was my favorite and I visited the fort as many as three times in April & August’1992 and Nov’1993. I also travelled to the interior village Nimbaheda near Chittorgarh and stayed there with my friend, while visiting Nimach (MP) once.

I visited Jaipur in July 1990 and Udaipur and the fort at Bundi in August 1992.
(I remember that I visited Jaipur once again in 1994, but that was for an interview and not for sightseeing. So, this does not get into the list 🙂 )

Modern-day Rajasthan was formed on 1st November, 1956. Earlier it was known as ‘Rajputana’ the name given by the Britishers and it was formed on 30th March 1949 (ref – wiki)
It is also known as the ‘Princely State of India’ (Rajputana comprises as many as nineteen princely states (as per wiki).
Rajasthan is divided into thirty-three districts with seven Divisions viz. Jaipur, Udaipur, Ajmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Kota and Bharatpur.
By area it is the largest state of India followed by Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Rajasthan has its glorious history, culture and traditions and so we have many festivals that are celebrated with huge grandeur and enthusiasm.

Hindi films have from time to time included stories and songs based on Rajasthani culture and traditions.
(And since more songs – based on Rajasthan- can be included in this series in future posts I have numbered this post as #Rajasthan-1#)

I watched ‘Lamhe-1991’ at Kota and again twice at Indore when I was travelling for Parli-Vaijnath via Indore-Purna junction. It was after three years that I was going to home since I landed at Kota in 1988. (my parents visited me once in between).

The ‘metre-gauge’ train travel also is one other subject that I wish to cover in another post, so many memories coming back to mind now …
I liked the movie ‘Lamhe’ very much then and also its songs which brings back many memories for me. The film has been shot at many fascinating and beautiful locations of Rajasthan.

So, here is a song from this film ‘Lamhe-1991’ composed by Shiv-Hari and sung by Mohiuddin. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and this ‘folk based song’ is composed by Shiv-Hari. If we listen this ‘magical’ composition again and again it fills us with pride and make nostalgic about the ‘glorious’ past of the ‘princely’ state Rajasthan.

I am unable to recollect now when this song appears in the movie. However I think it is a background song. As of now only the audio of this song is available.

Earlier I could not get right words at few places so I contacted one of our senior guest members whom I met during the Mumbai Gang out in 2016 – Shri. Mahendra Bafna ji and he immediately responded to my request and guided me about the correct words in the lyrics.

Enjoy the song while remembering the glorious and colorful part of India- Rajasthan.

So far three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Blog Day : 3630 Post No. : 14455

Yesterday, 25th June was the birth anniversary of actor Raghuveer Yadav and we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. (In the anniversary list on our blog his birth date is mentioned as Jan 1st, however almost all of the internet sites that I came across during search for his biography have mentioned 25th June’1957 as his date of birth. So now I only have doubt about the year of his birth if it is correct, the reason is mentioned in the write up below.

Many of us movie Hindi Movie lovers are aware of Raghuveer Yadav and his multifaceted talent. I cannot exactly tell when my first interaction was watching his perform was but going by the chronology I think it was his TV serial ‘Mungerilal Ke Haseen Sapne’ which left an indelible mark on my mind. Later on, so far, I think I had watched very few of his movies, not even the newer ones too.

But still Raghuveer Yadav is one such name that brings many things to mind – unmatchable talent, his rustic-but so natural-and innocent acting which gets him immersed into the character and the one watching it gets involved so much so that when he came out of the movie hall he came with this character (which ever he is playing) all around oneself and it take time before one comes to normal after that. His acting does not only shake your mind and leave its imprints but leaves its magic on your ‘soul’ that is how I would like to put it in my words.

A story of simplicity, struggle, and an extra-ordinary achievement coming from an ordinary background. A living saga of dedication, hard work and immense talent. So, I think, to know why Raghuveer Yadav is what he is today, one must learn about his formative years mainly, which evolve him into being a ‘living legend’ today. I am approaching this post in a different manner without mentioning the name of the movies he has acted till now. Because as he himself has mentioned that his best is yet to come and whatever he has done till now, he feels, could have been done much better than that. As an ‘actor’ he thinks, he cannot achieve what he wants to achieve in this ‘single life’ and needs ‘one (or may be more)’ lives to achieve that. The journey is on. . .

Raghuveer Yadav was born on in Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh on 25th June, 1957. His father was a farmer in a small village near Jabalpur.  Among five siblings – three sisters and two brothers – he was the second after his elder sister. Since his childhood he was fond of singing even though none from his family was even remotely related with singing. Given the background of living around farms and learning in a small village school where the classes were conducted below a tree and sitting on the wooden planks, it was natural for him to get attracted towards the nature and maybe he developed that habit of observing the happenings around since those days. He used to take his cattle or grazing around and travelling bullock-carts.

As he was not interested much in studies he somehow completed his education till Higher Secondary (as told by himself in his interview in ‘Guftagoo’ on Rajya Sabha TV). When he was asked to learn Science in Higher Secondary, in apprehension of failing in exams he planned to run away from home and ‘fortunately’ so there was a person in his village who used to run-away from home at regular intervals and had become a ‘professional bhagouda’. Raghuveer run away with him and they reach at the person’s Uncle. After the money stolen from (his father’s pocket) was finished Raghuveer’s friend returned back to his village. However Raghuveer decided to stay back and joined a ‘Parsi theatre group’ in those years and started singing there. In Parsi theatre the ability to sing was a very necessary qualification to get any work there.

Well in those years (1967 as per him i.e. why I think his year of birth should be earlier than 1957, if we consider he ran away from home when he was doing higher secondary.). He got the job of singing in between the intervals during the change of ‘scenes’. He used to get Rs.2.50 per day or even Rs.1.00/1.50 sometimes then and thus had to be without food many times. When the survival became difficult and the singing opportunities were getting reduced he has to take on ‘acting’ at the behest of the owner of the group. There he also started learning, writing and speaking ‘Urdu’.

After working with this ‘play group’ for almost six years and travelling through various places for doing plays, Raghuveer finally come to Lucknow and started doing ‘Puppet’ shows. And after that he landed in Delhi and joined the National School of Drama. And, from here under the baton of Ibrahim Alkazi he learned and learned a lot about theatre, set designing, craft, music and singing, and his journey till reaching here had already given him lot of insights on ‘human life’ too.

He was a part of the NSD Repertory when he got his first opportunity to work in movies and thus his entry in movies happened with ‘Massey Saheb-1985’, which fetch him two International awards too. He was awarded the Silver Peacock for best acting at the 11th International Film Festival of India in 1987.

He always wanted to be a singer and has a passion for music. He plays many instruments and even builds some on his own. Singing and Music has remained his strong passion and that is why in trying and testing times or in depression he always resorted to music which gives him peace and satisfaction. During his interviews he has mentioned that the music during the ‘sixties’ was his favourite, however so far he didn’t mention any of the Bollywood songs which he liked most. It will be interesting to know which songs his favourite during those years have been and which motivated him if any. Or may be since he was mainly attracted towards theatre, the poetry-based songs and/or folk songs remained his main attraction. He also fondly remembers his days of theatre in ‘Delhi’ and all his friends there whom he missed a lot. (I would request readers to watch and listen to his singing of ‘Delhi’ and ‘Majnu’ in his interviews which is very touching).

Given the hardships he faced in life and reaching the heights where he is today cannot be summed up in one article here. It required a detailed biography which I am sure will be interesting and inspirational for the many who wants to achieve a ‘purpose’ in life.

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Aasmaan Se Giraa’ (1991). This film is directed by Pankaj Parashar for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’. Pankaj Parashar also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. Neena Bhatnagar was the additional screenplay writer of this movie. It had Raghuveer Yadav, Abhishek, Kalpana Iyer, Rakesh Shrivastava, Sunil Ranade, Navtej Hundal, Ranjit Shah, Kurush Deboo, DK Mathur, DN Shaily and Sanjeev Shah. Sheeba, Tisca Arora, Rajesh Puri, Anupam Kher, Sridevi, Anil Kapoor and Amjad Khan make ‘guest appearances’ in this movie. Commentary in the movie was done by Shaban Azmi. Anubhav Sinha was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie, and V Ramesh Babu was the Chief Assistant Editor. Editing for this movie was done by Afaque Husain.  Choreography of this movie was done by Vijay Oscar, Bhupendra Singh, Pankaj Parashar. Bijon Das Gupta was the Art Director of this movie. Raghuveer Yadav, Shailendra Singh, Suresh Wadkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Hema and Abhishek gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Kamlesh Pandey was the lyricist for this movie and he also wrote the dialogues for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Louis Banks.

It was passed by the Censor Board on 30.08.1991 (but seems to be released in theatres on 04.09.1992 as most of the internet sources mentioned it). The following synopsis about this movie and brief about the Director of this movie Pankaj Parashar has been taken as given with the YouTube link (Ultra Kids Zone, posted on 06.08.2016) of this movie;

A young prince is trained for a time when he will grow up to become king. The lonely boy is frustrated at being kept secluded while being taught the art of statesmanship by great scholars. One day he finds a strange little man from another planet. He names his new friend Trishanku and the two exchange views about their own worlds. Trishankhu is homesick and wishes to return back to his planet. The two-escape trying to find ways for Trishankhu to go back. On their journey they develop a deep bonding and it is hard for Trishankhu to let go.

This heartwarming film by popular TV and film director Pankaj Parashar stars a galaxy of Bollywood stars in guest appearances including Sridevi, Amjad Khan, Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Pankaj Parashar A reputed director of films and TV series. He is an alumnus of FTII, Pune. His diploma film ‘Malfunction’ for the institute won him a Filmfare Award for Best Documentary. Since then he has held the directorial chair for many reputed films most notable being ‘Jalwa’ (1987) and ‘Chaal Baaz’ (1989) with the latter winning him another Filmfare award. He also made the immensely popular TV serial ‘Karamchand’, India’s first detective series in 1985. Currently Pankaj divides his time making ad films and working on his next feature film

I remember having watched this movie on ‘Doordarshan’ may be in 1994-95, and since then I could not forget it. I was searching for its songs since many years now and particularly I liked the other song of this movie very much and I and my cousins used to discuss about it and sing it whenever we used to get together. The movie also has some beautiful locations of Rajasthan and this could be the other factor why it is close to my heart as I was in Rajasthan then from 1989-1996 🙂 though I watched the movie on TV during visit to hometown in Maharashtra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s wonderful-philosophical song, sung by Raghuveer Yadav and Master Abhishek, which I sincerely hope you too will like and enjoy.

Song – Ghar Jaana Hai (Aasmaan Se Gira) (1991) Singer – Raghuveer Yadav, Master Abhishek, Lyrics – Kamlesh Pandey, MD – Louis Banks

Lyrics

kitni gol hai duniya teri
reh gaya main chakraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai ae
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai ae

hamaara itihaas mahaan hai
mahaa puroshon ki khaan hai
itihaas?
ye kya hota hai
ek tha sikandar
aadmi tha ya bandar
ha ha ha
yunaan ka raja tha
sikandar mahaan
sapna tha uska
loote saara jahaan
desh pardesh
uske jhande taley aate gaye
raja maharaja sabhi sar jhukaate gaye
mere bhaai
ye jhanda kya hota hai
dande ke upar ek kapda hota hai
jo haar jaata hai
to ban jaata hai ghulam
jeetnewaale ke jhande ko
karna padta hai salaam

samjhaa aa

sab ka alag alag jhanda hai
jhande ke andar danda hai
jisko guroor aata hain
apna danda dikhlaata hai
jhande se jhanda ladta hai
aadmi kat’ta marta hai
har ek desh jhande se lais
jiska danda usi ki bhains
isiliye to dete naara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara
jhanda ooncha rahe hamaara

sikandar ne lekin
saari duniya ko jeeta
achchha hota
agar wo ghar baith kar chaai peeta
chai peenewaale
itihaas nahin banaate

yahi agar itihaas hai to
kya karna isey dohraake
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

hamaari sanskriti hai bahut puraani
hamaare yahaan huye hai
bade bade gyaani
mere bhaai
kya hota hai gyaan
kya hota hai gyaani
gyaani wo jisne jaani
aatma kya hai
partmaatma kya hai
ye sab moti moti kitaabon mein likha hai
kya likha hai
aatma kya hai
aatma amar hai
chaurasi lakh yoniyon ka safar hai
na koyi jeeta hai
na marta hai
aatma bas nayaa roop dharta hai

koyi jeeta na koyi marta hai
koyi farq nahin padta hai

phir to koyi kisi ko maare
begunaah saare hatyaare
naa koyi khooni naa koi laash
mujrim judge sab ek hi saath

janam janam ka pheraa hai
chidiya rain basera hai

janam janam ke phere mein
main rah gaya chakkar kha ke
aasmaan se giraa magar
atkaa khajoor mein aake ae
mujhe ghar jaana hai
ghar jaana hai ae ae
ghar jaana hai

कितनी गोल है दुनिया तेरी
रह गया मैं चकराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारा इतिहास महान है
महा पुरूषों कि खान है
इतिहास?
ये क्या होता है

एक था सिकंदर
आदमी था या बन्दर
ह ह ह
यूनान का राजा था
सिकंदर महान
सपना था उसका
लुटे सारा जहां
देश परदेश
उसके झंडे तले आते गए
राजा महाराजा सभी सर झुकाते गए
मेरे भाई
ये झंडा क्या होता है
डंडे के ऊपर एक कपडा होता है
जो हार जाता है
तो बन जाता है गुलाम
जीतनेवाले के झंडे को
करना पड़ता है सलाम
समझा ॰ ॰ ॰

सब का अलग अलग झंडा है
झंडे के अन्दर डंडा है
जिसको गुरूर आता हैं
अपन डंडा दिखलाता है
झंडे से झंडा लड़ता है
आदमी कटता मरता है
हर एक देश झंडे से लैस
जिसका डंडा उसी कि भैंस
इसीलिए तो देते नारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा
झंडा ऊँचा रहे हमारा

सिकंदर ने लेकिन
सारी दुनिया को जीता
अच्छा होता
अगर वो घर बैठ कर चाय पीता
चाय पीनेवाले
इतिहास नहीं बनाते

यही अगर इतिहास है तो
क्या करना इसे दोहराके
आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

हमारी संस्कृति बहुत पुरानी है
हमारे यहाँ हुए है
बड़े बड़े ग्यानी
मेरे भाई
क्या होता है ज्ञान
क्या होता है ग्यानी
ग्यानी वो जिसने जानी
आत्मा क्या है
परमात्मा क्या है
ये सब मोटी मोटी किताबों में लिखा है
क्या लिखा है
आत्मा क्या है
आत्मा अमर है
चौरासी लाख योनियों का सफ़र है
ना कोई जीता है
ना कोई मरता है
आत्मा बस नया रूप धरता है
कोई जीता न कोई मरता है
कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता है

फिर तो कोई किसी को मारे
बेगुनाह सारे हत्यारे
ना कोई खुनी ना कोई लाश
मुजरिम जज सब ही साथ

जनम जनम का फेरा है
चिड़िया रेन बसेरा है

जनम जनम के फेरे में
मैं रह गया चक्कर खा के

आसमान से गिरा मगर
अटका खजूर में आके ए
मुझे घर जाना है ए
घर जाना है ए ए
घर जाना है ए

Blog Day : 3512 Post No. : 14111

How do I begin this post? I am at a loss. I have so many things running in my head. Should I say Sunday 25th March 2018, was a bad day or sad day. But it was definitely a day which began sadly for me. I normally begin my Sundays an hour later than working days, but this Sunday was different. The constant buzzing of my mobile due to incoming messages disturbed me. And one of the message was from my son, who was travelling, and had not slept in the bus. He was seeing the internet site of a news channel which carried the shocking news that the darling of the audiences SRIDEVI had passed away in Dubai of a CARDIAC Arrest. That jolted me and my first reaction was to google for confirmation. And sure enough the news had broken on the internet a few minutes back. The first person to break the news to Atulites was Satyajitji from DOWN Under. And the reactions followed through the day- here there everywhere.

There were messages being posted and reposted and forwarded among the various WhatsApp- groups all trying to find a reason for the sudden death of a supposedly perfectly healthy human being. The mystery still continues. But we have lost a “Khwaabon Ki Shehzaadi”, a style icon, an inspiration for numerous aspiring actors. A person who was passionate about her work. She was comfortable doing an Indian classical dance as well as out-of-tune Bollywood-style numbers the equivalent of which in South Indian movies are called Dappang-Kootu; though Dappang-Kootu is largely folk dance based and Sridevi was good in all of it.

On the day the news broke all the news channels spoke of her work in Tamil as well as Hindi movie and mentioned in the passing about her having worked in Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu as well. Having started at the very young age of 4 or 5 she has acted opposite all the giants of the Indian film industry of the period starting with Sivaji Ganesan and Gemini Ganesan in her first movie “Kandan Karunai” as child star in Tamil; followed by “Maa Naana Nirdoshi” in Telugu, “Kumara Sambhavam” in Malayalam, and “Apna Desh” in Hindi as Rajesh Khanna’s niece- cannot forget “Rona kabhi nahin rona chahe toot jaaye koi khilona” although her fist outing as child star in Hindi was “Rani Mera Naam” in 1972. I have also seen her in the Tamil version of “Apna Desh” “Nam Naadu” as niece to MGR. Just before she began performing adult roles we saw her as sister to Lakshmi in “Julie” in the iconic song “My heart is beating”, she was just 11 then.

From the age of 13 she graduated to doing adult roles and Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth were her first co-actors. There was time when she was a heroine to many actors of the South Indian film industry in whose films she had acted as a child.

Her debut in Hindi was in the not-so-successful “Solva Sawan” in 1979 opposite Amol Palekar; she had also starred in the Tamil original and the Telugu remake. But after her second attempt in Hindi movies in the Jeetendra starrer “Himmatwala” in 1983. I distinctly remember that year I had been to Hyderabad to my mama’s place and there were these huge posters everywhere of this beautiful heroine amid rows of “colourful pots” in what turned out to be a song which is still popular “nainon mein sapna, sapno mein sajna, sajna pe dil aagaya”. That was also the time when Jaya Prada had made her debut in Hindi movies through “Sargam”. And the teenager that I was then, decided Sridevi was a threat to Jaya Prada, and refused to see that movie. I think the first Sridevi movie I saw of my own choice was “Inquilaab” because Amitabh Bachchan was her co-star. And then I was floored by her. Subsequently I have many of her movies and was particularly fond of her pairing with Jeetendra and Amitabh Bachchan though that was only in three movies, she was the FEMALE SUPERSTAR of her times. She also paired successfully with Anil Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty.

—————–
I have been writing this for the last two days and still the reality has not sunk-in. I am still thinking of the day when the news broke. In the meantime, there has been news that our shehzaadi died due to “accidental drowning” but whatever be the reason she is lost to us and her numerous fans. But the people who will miss her the most will be her two young daughters and husband, immediate family and friends. They have undergone great mental stress this last few days, the time that it took them to get her mortal remains from Dubai. My thoughts are with them. They say the cremation will finally happen today. May our darling Sridevi find eternal peace.

Over the last two days, as I was talking of a star/ an actor I loved, I told my mom-in-law about all the Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies of the 80s where Sri always played a stronger character and Jaya had all the crying to do. My sister was thinking of all the famous songs of the Jeetendra- Sridevi- Jaya Prada movies which could not have been done by anyone else. Everyone must have had a song of that time which they loved but will never admit as those were songs with seemingly no-sense. But they all were successful.

A thought just went through my mind. The day the news came on TV some channels showed a scene from one of her first movies as a child. It had baby Sridevi “crying unconsolably running a short distance and collapsing on to her Knee and still crying.” Her last released movie “Mom” (2017) has her running similarly, crying uncontrolled and dropping on to her knee. Uncanny I must say!!

The song with this post is from “Lamhe”. I had originally intended that the song should accompany a post on the graceful Waheeda Rehman, but I am presenting it here on this sad occasion. There is an incident behind the shoot of this song which Yash Chopra has related. The shoot was scheduled in London in 1991. That was the time her father passed away. She left the shoot midway to be with her family during the time of grief. The schedule was that this song was to be shot and upon her return Yash Chopra offered to change the schedule or cancel it altogether. But such was Sri’s passion to her work that she was ready to do what the director asked for. Anupam Kher her co-actor in the movie adds that in between shots she used to be drowned in grief but there used to be no trace of that emotion once she was infront of the camera. She was a darling of the camera too.

Rest in Peace Dear—Om Shanti, Shanti Shanti.

26th October is an important date for our blog. It has 2 birthdays. One is our very own Rajababu another is the female actor of the 90s Raveena Tandon. For me it is important as on this day my lil sister was born all those years ago. (I still feel of my sisters as little sisters even though the eldest child of my younger sis is in her first year of college this year, and the twins of my other sister are in class 4).

This is the story of a ‘self-proprietorship firm’ uniquely named ‘Atul Song A Day’ (hereinafter called the Company) which was set up on July 19, 2008 by Atul Besra. In his venture, he received encouragement from Raja, his Cricforum friend. The mission was to produce at least one song a day. However, due to abundant supply of ‘raw material’ and the demand for the ‘finished product’, the production was increased to more than one song a day within 3 months of its existence.

It is just past midnight. It continues to be chillingly cold here in Delhi. The standoff is ongoing in the struggle with the beckoning blankets, as the mind is trying its best to continue staying at the keyboard and thwart all the enticements of a cozy quilt. So far so good.
