Talking about Independence day from the comforts of our home six decades after we received it is one thing. Even daring to talk about independence when the country was under British Rule was considered treason and such daring people were severely dealt with by the British at that time .

Purandara Dasa (148O- 1564) who is regarded as the father of Carnatic music was born in Karnataka. I find it somewhat paradoxical that Karnataka, the birthplace of the father of Carnatic music is also the birthplace of some of the most distinguished vocalists of Hindustani classical music. Most of them were born in the North Karnataka region. The prominent Hindustani vocalists from North Karnataka were Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (Gadag), Pandit Kumar Gandharv (Belgaum), Pandit Mallikarjun Mansur (Mansur, Dharwad), Sawai Gandharv (Dharwad), Gangubai Hangal (Dharwad), Shobha Gurtu (Belgaum), Pandit Dinkar Kaikini (Kaikini, Uttar Kannada) etc.

‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubeida’ (2OO1) were films of Muslim trilogy directed by Shyam Bengal.

Memory is a strange thing. On one hand one can remember hundreds of movies, their plotlines, who starred in what, and so many obscure details about them. We can remember so many songs, their complete lyrics, who sang it, what is the picturization, everything. But right when we need our memory to actually work – exams and birthdays – it goes on strike.

This song is from the Film Khaamoshi – The Musical. This is a comparatively new film for this blog. But since I like the songs of this film too much, I want to discuss this song first. The singer is Kavita Krishnamoorthy and the music director is the duo of Jatin-Lalit. Jatin-Lalit may not be the most original music directors of the 90’s but they brought a freshness to Hindi film music which had lost all appeal during the 80’s.

Most of the songs in this blog are from 1950s and 1960s, so going by the standards of this blog, this song is a brand new song, in mint condition. 🙂

Here is a lovely 1970 style song from 1997. The movie is ” Raja Hinsdustani” and listening to this song almost reminds me of the movie “Asha”(1980) and its dhaba song “Jaane ham sadak ke logon se mahlo waale kyun jalte hain”.
