Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.

Well, his blog is an encyclopedia of old HFM I would say, containing the most accurate information. In addition to all these qualities, he allows others to write on his blog (guess it is done after correcting wrong particulars sent by guest-writers. I am sure that many of the guest-writers are themselves experts in the field who don’t give wrong details. But it is another matter for a know-nothing person like me!!).

Hats-off to you Sir!!! Your ‘saat khoon maaf‘ (though I don’t forgive the acting of Priyanka Chopra in the movie (unrelated CSP??) 🙂 Hope you continue to do it for decades to come, my sincere wishes are with you.

Coming to song that I have selected by proxy (it was suggested by Sudhir ji, many thanks to you Sudhir ji) is “Barso Re Megha” from the 2007 film ‘Guru’. The movie was released in 2007.  It is directed by Mani Ratnam and produced under the banner of Madras Talkies. The music is by AR Rehman and the lyrics writer is Gulzar. The song is picturized on Aishwarya Rai and sung by Shreya Ghoshal. Each and every one of them is a very big name in the Hindi movie world as you all know. With this song, the movie ‘Guru’ makes its debut on the blog.

There is an unknown male singer who sings a couple of lines in between. Request to more knowledgeable readers to help identify the voice please.

What a delightful song it is. Aishwarya looks out of the world, dances ethereally. She sheds her plasticky image to portray the joy of experiencing rain. She dances with abandon to the steps of Saroj Khan. The background of the song is – she is about to leave her parental home and elope with her beloved Guru (role played by Abhishek Bachchan). There is a short dialogue in the song in Aishwarya’s own voice about India getting independence and she chuckling why shouldn’t she.

Rain is shown pouring throughout the song and it is supposed to be natural rain as it was monsoon season when this song was shot. Aishwarya is heard calling the clouds to send down more rains. She says the rain is neither warm, nor too cold; the temperature is at optimal level (kosa), is sweet (meetha) and is like a kiss (bosa). Unusual words but not unusual with Gulzar. (Thanks to Sudhir ji for the right meaning of the words). She wants to build a house with mud made wet by rains with her lover. And she is perched on a jhoola and literally rocking. Ah girl, what bliss!!

She hears the twinkling sounds of bulls and farmers tilling land. Unmindful of the consequences, she swims towards the dwelling of her premi. In the dark night, rain flows rapidly. She imagines that the clouds will be searching for her. After searching for a while in locations like ghar, aangan, angana and jharna, the clouds will move away unable to find her. See, she is clever enough to keep her activity covert, even clouds cannot see her. She tells the billowing clouds not to forget her as otherwise everybody will be asking them about her. What imagination!! With unsteady movements, she moves towards her goal of joining her darling dearest.

Now if anybody is wondering what is the relationship between this song and Atul ji’s feat. This is what Sudhir ji has to say – Listening to this song, what came to my mind is the downpour of music that is made possible by Atul ji, through ASAD. Makes perfect sense.

Enjoy the song. Hope you too jig / swirl / frolic / jive / prance with our heroine.

[Spoken words in Aishwarya’s voice while she writes a letter to father:]
(baapu main jaa rahi hoon. jo meri marzi hai woh aap ki pasand nahin.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 9
——————————————————————–

I am an Atulite and I am proud of it. It is an honor to be associated with a blog that drips pure love of music. Like almost all Indians I love Hindi film music. But I cannot claim to be knowledgeable about it. I do know many songs but that is not a qualification. There are thousands of songs out there, many of which have fallen into oblivion. It is the die-hard music lovers that keep track of these songs and chase them with an assiduity that would make Sherlock Holmes feel jealous.

I am amazed when some of my friends are able to name the movie, singer, lyricist and music director as soon as the song is mentioned. Some Atulites could also tell you charming little stories behind the making of each song. Delving here, I have discovered gorgeous songs that not much known but are as precious as Koh-i-Noor.

It is all kudos to Atul who has, with his magnetic personality, been able to draw so many music lovers into a tight community called Atulites. Congratulations to Atul for the personal landmark of 10000 individual postings. I know the people here, and I know this is merely a stepping stone for many more such achievements.

I have sneaked in newer songs on the blog, often from the current year, to even out the pre-70s bias that this blog has. It is a bias that is perfectly understandable if you listen to the quality of early songs. Nothing that is created now comes close to the kind of music that was once created. Yet, some of the newer songs have a beautiful melody that lingers in your mind.

A little while back some of my friends played a game on facebook where you had to mention the movie you liked best from the year you were born till the current time. Almost all my friends felt they would not be able to name a movie after the 80s. Surprisingly, there was at least one movie per year that qualified to be listed as a good movie. Good movies are still being made and nice music is still being composed. We still have singers who bring a lot of feeling to their songs and lyrics that convey a depth of feeling.

‘Wake Up Sid’ is a 2009 movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma. It is an odd pair. Ranbir Kapoor is a popular sweetheart and Konkana is an art house favorite. Yet they came together in this quirky film that worked on many levels. As the title of the movie shows, it is primarily about a spoilt rich boy who learns to make his way in the world. It is also about a small town girl who learns how to survive in a big city. Even though she is very sure of what she wants in life, she finds it hard to reconcile with the fact that she has fallen for a younger man.

Time was when songs were sung by the hero and heroine running around in pleasant locales. Now cinema has taken a more realistic turn and songs are more often in the background, depicting the mood of actors. This song is also played in background and has the same feel as a song sung by a wandering mendicant in earlier films.


Song – O Re Manwa Tu To Baawra Hai (Wake Up Sid) (2009) Singers – Kavita Seth, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Chorus 

Lyrics

o re manwa tu toh baawra hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai baawre
kyon dikhaye sapne tu sotey jaagte
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

dil me bole koi iktara iktara
dil me bole koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke
koi main kahaani
poori kahaani hai kya
kise hai pata
main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
rut hai yeh do pal ki ya
rahegi sadaa

kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

ओ रे मनवा तू तो बावरा है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है बावरे
क्यों दिखाये सपने तू सोते जागते
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ
देख ना सकूँ
अञ्जाने रास्ते

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

सुन रही हूँ सुध बुध खोके
कोई मैं कहानी
पूरी कहानी है क्या
किसे है पता
मैं तो किसि की होके ये भी ना जानी
रुत है ये दो पल की या
रहेगी सदा

किसे है पता
किसे है पता
किसे है पता

जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 6
——————————————————————–

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Mubaarak Ho. . .

At the very outset, I must congratulate our Leader or Sutradhar as I like to call him or Ranchi Wala Gaanewala as Sudhir ji once called him (he is no longer in Ranchi but the name stays) on reaching a very important milestone- 10000 songs, imagine it is TEN THOUSAND posts by a single person. For this we should all give a collective YYIIPPEEEE!!!! Mubarak Ho! Mubarak Ho!

This must be a record of sorts where a blog has survived this looong and its karta-dharta has sooo many posts to his credit. And to think that this blog doesn’t make any comments or remarks on any person, place, caste, religion etc. the closest we come to religion is when a bhajan or qawwali is posted. Three cheers to that!

I would love to learn from our dear Atul ji how he manages his time. I know for sure that he has to look after his pets, home and job along with reading up and doing research for and about the songs that he intends to post here in the blog. Also, he has the added task of enduring pests like me who send contribution at the nth hour. Only I know the number of times I might have messaged him or called him to draw his attention to a mail that I had sent him, after discovering a birth date or death anniversary around one o’clock (day-time 😉), then looking for a song, writing a post, reading the whole thing at least once before I send it; all this would take me an hour or two; by which time it will be 4 in the afternoon; by when (I am certain) Atul ji would have had his stock of posts ready for the day; but the angel that he is he will still try his level best to accommodate this late entry of mine. Thank you Atul ji for reigniting the writing bug in me after possibly 20 years of inaction.

I am sure more organised people like Guru ji, Maha Guru ji, Sudhir ji and also all the regulars who send contributions; send their posts and farmaishes well in advance so that Atul ji finds time to decide where to fit in that particular post or check the lyrics for correctness etc. I am sure he does this even after 13k+ songs have been posted and all his contributors are sticklers for correct details about the songs they send and the lyrics that go with it. This blog is the only place in the cyber world where we find songs with complete and correct lyrics in addition to a little knowledge about the songs or the movie or the picturization etc. And what I admire most about his style is he is ready to admit when he has not heard a particular note or syllable. He admits when he cannot recognise an artist. He does not show an “I know everything” attitude. Hats off to you Atul ji.

You are a true leader in the sense that after I started following the blog I have started paying attention to the words, music, lyricist etc. connected with songs. Till then I used to be a slave of the song, only!!! I can show many songs where I used to sing them along with whatever I thought was the right words. The most recent example of me, finding myself wrong being,when I heard this ever favourite song of mine from Navrang – “Aadha Hain Chandrama“. I used to sing it as “Sur aadha hain saamne baadha” (God alone knows why I thought those were the words). Recently when I heard the song again I realised that it is “Sur aadha hi shaam ne saadha”. I don’t want to give more examples and make this post extra-long. Thank you Atul ji, for making me an attentive listener. Now there is only one thing left for me to-do; visit him in his den and see him in action as I am sure many in this Atuldom have had the chance to.

We all know that before he began Atulsongaday our “fearless leader” (again borrowing a term that Sudhir ji uses for our Sutradhar) had started a blog on another pet passion of his, and that is why he is SQUARECUT ATUL. I am not sure if he himself was ever a cricketer but he is an avid follower of the game and that is another passion that many of us Atulites share with him. And with it being the IPL season the cricket bug is in the air. I think the song with this post I ideal for the occasion. It is from the 2007 release ‘Hattrick’ which is produced by UTV Movies and directed by Milan Luthria. It has a non-starry cast of Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar, Danny and Kunal Kapoor with Rimi Sen. It showed the life of cricket crazy characters one of whom was himself an ex-cricketer (Danny). It has Sandeep Patil, Harsha Bhogle and Gautam Bhimani (the commentator) making guest appearances. The movie had Mayur Puri, Amit Khanna, Vishal Dadlani & Ashish Pandit as lyricists and Pritam Chakravarty as the music director. Today’s song is by Mayur Puri and Usha Iyer (that was what she was when she debuted and later on became Uthup) with Earl Edgar D’Souza. The song appears towards the end of the movie and we have the whole cast grooving in the party mood with Bhogle, Bhimani,John Abraham and Usha Uthup joining the fun.

Let’s celebrate our leader’s looooong innings. As the cricket commentators used to say once upon a time “over to the stadium for the live relay of the match” I say “over to the song now.”


Song – Run To Banega Par Wicket Bachaa (Hattrick) (2007) Singer – Usha Uthup, Lyrics – Mayur Puri, MD – Preetam

Chorus

Lyrics

khel ye nahi hai ye hai jung mere bhai
aaj tu dikha de tere rang mere bhai

run to banega par wicket bacha
chaahe right chaahe aaye googly
tujpe uthe na kabhi koi ungali
bas score ko badha

Hullo to all Atulwaasis’

Today(8 february 2017) is the first death anniversary of Nida Fazli. I realised it when radio Ceylon played songs penned by him this morning. I must admit here that I didn’t know that he had passed away last year of a massive heart attack. Another thing I should admit was that I never knew that he was that old a poet.

It is all about feline creatures. Cats are said to have nine lives. Who says ? Maybe some legend. It is also said that the truth is stranger than fiction. I imagine behaviorally cats are closer to humans than monkeys, theory of evolution not withstanding. Or maybe felines are the evolved human race, and in previous lives they were human, who knows. Anyway I have also heard that the civilized world is all going to cats and dogs. No kidding, this proves my hunch that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. (Note : No sleight or slander intended to cats, dogs, monkeys, humans and their assorted species).

Hullo to all the guys and gals of Atuldom

The writing bug has hit me after a long time.

Had an enjoyable January. To begin with had a quiet ushering in of the New Year followed by birthday time. So each had a small outing attached to it.

Then the most eventful Sunday….17th January 2016. A day which was under planning since October 2015 when we had a mail from Guruji of his impending visit to Bangalore via Hosur and Hyderabad. This time the group met at a new venue— Residence of Gajendra Khanna. Now here I feel like mentioning that I am floored by his collection of Vinyl Records and the number of WORKING TURNTABLES or Record Players as I used to call them as a kid. Another thing that should be mentioned is his wonderful idea of how to get more people to enjoy an event and the thought behind getting us live on YOUTUBE that day. We went live that day at about 11. And instantly Avinashji, Ben Katie, Atulji YYIIPPEEEE master and a few of Gajendra’s friends (I don’t know exactly how many or who all) hooked on to us. The (physical) attendees were Shenoyji, Arunji (Guruji), Rajaji, Gajendraji and a group of music lovers whom I got acquainted with for the first time that day.

Wishing all followers of ASAD a very Happy Diwali… I know the festival of lights is over but the schools are yet to reopen after the Diwali Holidays. So the spirit of Diwali is still there in the air.
