18th September 2015 is the birthday of Kaifi and Shaukat Azmi’s daughter Shabana Azmi. She turns 66 on this day.

There are many children who are known as so-and-so’s child and there are many children who make a place for themselves in public eye and then the parents are called so-and-so’s parents. That means Shabana Azmi’s Pehchaan need not be as Kaifi and Shaukat Azmi’s daughter. She is a persona by herself. Being the poet’s daughter or the veteran stage actress’s daughter only explains her artistic leanings.

July 18th is an important date in the life of atulsongaday.me. Actually it marks the eve of the birth of the blog itself. I wonder what must have been Atul ji’s sphere of activity on the day prior to this date in the year 2008 when the blog was launched. Last year on this date we were on a countdown to reach our song number 10,000. With this post, we stand at 11,295.

There are only a handful of Bollywood numbers from movies made after mid-1960s that I really long to hear. Lest I may be misunderstood, this is a statement of personal preference by this music-illiterate, not necessarily an adverse commentary on the later years’ work.

The last time I discussed my dogs was in february 2013, which was more than two years ago. My dogs were two years old at that time. Now they are four years old. So they have become twice as old as they were at that time.

Yesterday evening Vividh Bharati was playing a whole lot of songs penned by Gulzar in the last two decades. And I was like “Oh My God! What a selection to post on the upcoming occasion of Gulzar Saab’s birthday”. But then I had this problem of zeroing into the right song for the blog as each and every song was a WOW! Just when I had thought of an appropriate number the next one would follow and I felt “nahin re, this should be the one!”. In the process I had selected all the songs played in that half an hour.

So the song which I have chosen today is from a very recent (going by the unwritten standards of our blog) bollywood movie though the movie itself had its story based in Pre independence India. It showed how the common folk reacted to the Hindu Muslim tensions back then. Even feelings as tender as love was given a kick when it came to religious sentiments. (At least that is what all the movies that are placed in that period depict. Sometimes I feel that thank god we were not born back then. But then I do not think we are living any differently even now in the 2000s, are we?) But lets not get into all that and focus on the song itself.

So this month sees a few greats celebrating their birthdays, one of them being Shabana Azmi- daughter of the very talented Shaukat Azmi and the poet with Communist leanings Kaifi Azmi. Basically a talent that was more into art films (a very Bollywood way of naming cinema that were seen only at film festivals and at the National Award ceremonies) but some one who couldn’t completely ignore the pulls from the commercial cinema (as Shashi Kapoor once said one genre kept his home fires burning and providing funds for the other genre). So we could see her winning awards for Paar, Arth Nishant etc and entertaining us in Parvarish, Fakira, Swarag Narag, Jwalamukhi etc, in my honest opinion she looked great in glamorous outfits as well as in Sarees.
