Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is that time of the year again. Time to celebrate another landmark of this beloved blog by all the members who contribute to it. Congratulations to the blog, its members and readers for hitting the 15K landmark.

I tend to ‘wake up’ only during the celebrations, though I like to keep afoot of the blog, not as much as I used to. Time was when I was tethered to a chair and computer for eight hours a day when I was working. There were many hours to be whiled away at times and it was easy to read the blog more often. Now that I am retired and a new member of Grandparents Club, I find less time to sit at the laptop. I often read posts on my mobile and find it hard to post comments from there. Nevertheless, it is still my number two most visited blog. Number one is my own blog, sorry, heh heh.

From something that was once Atul ji’s hobby, posting a song a day, this blog has burgeoned into a treasure trove of information. Various contributors keep the blog humming and it now has two fathers, Atul ji has been joined by Sudhir ji. This makes it easier for the blog to keep growing. There are a number of regular contributors, Arunkumar ji Deshmukh is the Bhishm Pitamah of the blog. Nalini ji is passionate about the blog, commenting and writing posts. Sadanandji, Avinash ji, Nahm ji, Mahesh ji, Satyajit ji, Gajendraji, Satishji are some of the other stalwarts. Raja is a personal friend of mine as well as the co-mentor of the blog. Forgive me if I have forgotten the names of other contributors – my memory is shaky post-retirement. 🙂

What do I love most about this blog? Number one reason is the sheer amount of information I gather by being here. Number two is the consistency of high standards in keeping the posts original and error free. Number three is the liveliness of the blog, the constant refreshment of content.

Hindi film music is a vast ocean, no, it is more like the skies that are endless. Luckily for the lovers of this blog, there will always be new songs and new posts to keep us occupied.

Now about this song. When new movies are promoted on television, they are accompanied by one or two big songs from the film. It becomes the signature song for the movie. Hence we get to know the popular songs from each movie and hum it more often. Yet there are often hidden gems within the songs of each movie, less popular but more beautiful. We do not hear them unless we watch the movie and are struck by it or listen to the complete playlist. ‘Haasil’ has a signature song too, “Ankhen Bhi Hoti Hain Dil Ki Zubaan”. But I am struck more by this song – “Ab Ghar Aa Ja”, a classical number which plays in the background during a poignant passage in the film.

‘Haasil’ (2003) was directed by Tigamanshu Dhulia and featured Jimmy Shergill, Irfan Khan and Hrishita Bhatt. College politics and gang war in Allahabad form the backdrop in which Jimmy and Hrishita meet and fall in love. Unfortunately, Jimmy becomes involved in the gang wars between two student leaders and is forced to flee to Mumbai. But soon he realises that he cannot keep hiding and lose his girlfriend in the bargain. He decides to return to Allahabad and face the consequences.

This song plays when the hero is traveling back to Allahabad from Mumbai in a train. The picturisation is very apt, the hero is pensive as he misses his girl, also because he knows he is soon going face danger. His mood is reflected in this slow classical number.

This song will debut the movie ‘Haasil’ on the blog. If I am not mistaken, singer Javed Ali debuts on the blog too. I hope you will like the song as much as I do.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hullo to Atuldom.

Let me wish all a very Happy New Year.

No, my post is not late by three and half months, it is just that India is a country which follows a calendar called Shak Samvat which the Hindus follow and Hijri which the Muslims follow. The new year by the Hijri calendar starts sometime in September but as far as the Hindu Calendar is concerned every region seems to have a different time of the year when the new year starts. And each region has a name for its New Year’s Day – Gudi Padva (Samsaar Padvo in Konkani), Ugadi, Poila Baishak (in East Indian States), Bighu (Bikhu in Uttarakhand), Bishuva Sankranti, Cheti Chand, Vishu or Chitra Vishu (in Kerala and Tamil Nadu), I am sure I am missing a few names in this list – what do I do, we have a vast country. But the common thread here is most of the above are in March – April of the Gregorian calendar (only in some parts new Year is during Diwali and southern part of Kerala has its new year at Onam). In Punjab it is Baishakhi, celebrated on the Mesha Sankraanti which occurs today for this year (generally it is 13th April). So now that explains why I wished Happy New Year.

14th April also happens to be the birth anniversary of the architect of the constitution of India, first law and justice minister and one of India’s founding fathers – Bharat Ratna Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar or Babasaheb Ambedkar as he is popularly known the world over.

He was a jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. My tributes to him on his 128th birthday without spelling his biography here.

There is another event which takes up my day on 14th April every year. In addition to it being our New Year (what we call Vishu) it is the birthdate of a very special person. There is a departure from the usual this year in that the New Year is on the 15th but birthdates don’t change, do they?

So, 14th April is the birthdate of part-time Atulite, full-time Satulite. He is at that year of life when people hang up their boots (he is not hanging them yet) and try to find time for other pleasures and hobbies that took a back seat when they were working hard to make ends meet. This Satulite calls himself Peevesie’s Dad. He takes pleasure in the achievements of his family – his son, daughter, brothers-sisters, brothers & sisters -in-law; is a big bhakt of his parents and parents-in-law; and is generous in encouraging his wife and kids towards whatever they are good at and forever supportive.

Infact he tried his level best to teach me to ride a two-wheeler and didn’t actually give up on me, but I must say I was a bad student who took a whole decade to master riding a two-wheeler. And was rewarded with a two-wheeler to ease my work load as soon as I mastered it. 🙂

As a teenager and right upto the end of my student days I was a staunch hater of any kind of automation and computers in particular. I had a feeling that each computer would eat up the job opportunity of two or three deserving humans (people called me crazy, maybe I was). But it does seem to have replaced a lot of things in people’s lives. Now, today’s birthday boy tried to change my mindset vis-à-vis computers and persuaded me to enroll myself in one of the many match-box size training institutes that tutored commoners about Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc, in addition to teaching a crash course in Corel or PageMaker. He thought it will be a useful skill, I must admit he was not wrong. Then he initiated me into the World-Wide Web and emails, and I am 100% sure he is ruing the day I agreed to learn all that he tried to get me to learn. He finds me at the desktop most of the time these days, and zooming in and around Bangalore (never unnecessarily) on a two-wheeler. And am also sure (secretly) he must be thanking my nervousness of being behind the wheel of a four-wheeler 😉

Oh, there are so many things that I can thank him for – he has lived half his life trying to understand me and my ways and moods. We have common interests in most aspects of life, possibly a little too much of compatibility, according to our children. The song with this post is ideal to express everything that I need to tell him. And the best part about the song is that it is not a lovey-dovey young couple song but a song choreographed on a motley group of honeymoon tourists which has a middle aged couple (Shabana Azmi – Boman Irani), mismatched couple (Ameesha Patel – Karan Khanna), small- town couple (Kay Kay Menon – Raima Sen), seemingly perfect couple (Minisha Lamba – Abhay Deol); and two other couples (Sandhya Mridul – Vikram Chatwal & Dia Mirza – Ranvir Shorey) who are on honeymoon but not exactly in love. (Dia Mirza and Ranvir are not in this song but they are part of the tourists in the Honeymoon Travels bus.) It is from the 2007 Reema Kagti directed “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.” The music for this song is by Vishal- Shekhar and Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. Sunidhi Chauhan and Shekhar Ravjiani are the playback. The movie was produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. I am in love with the choreographer of this song who has allowed the actors do their own thing which adds to the sweetness of the song.

Today’s song is a party song filmed aboard a cruise ship in Goa. I think the song is ideal for one more occasion – partying for the post number 15000 (FIFTEEN THOUSAND Phew!) of the blog. Let me try to list out all that we are celebrating in this series of celebratory posts – 10 complete years of the blog, 10 year challenge (on-going series); 1,15,40,016 hits (as I write this); 3919 days of existence (at the time of writing this) AND 11032 posts by our fearless leader (as Sudhir calls Atul ji) – we celebrated Atulji’s 10000 individual posts but missed complimenting him for tirelessly giving us 11000 posts. And the biggest point of celebration – post number 15000. In addition to celebrating the New Calendar in various parts of the country.

It has taken five years to get to 15k from 10k with numerous milestones and centuries strewn enroute.  The blog has bonded all of its regular followers, some of who are contributors in various avatars, in a bond like none other, a whole bunch of unrelated people who had never dreamt of being friends and don’t mind being called Atulites. For all this and more to come I thank ASAD the blog which is our collective addiction.

Also a very Happy Birthday to our Satulite.

Blog Day : 3900 Post No. : 14950

When I was in school, we had some “boring” subjects like, History, Geography, Social Science etc. These were “arts” subjects and were considered low scoring as well.

When I think about it now, I realise that History text book basically used to be like a collections of a few chapters and each chapter was like a story of a particular era. For instance, first chapter was Ramayana. second Chapter was Mahabharata. Third chapter was Mauryavansh (Chandragupta Maurya , Samrat Ashok etc. A few chapters later, we were into Mughal era (Akbar, Shahjahaan etc, and then British Era.

In British era, we had discussion on freedom struggle. In freedom struggle, we basically read that non violent movement by Mahatma Gandhi earned India their freedom. There was passing mention of Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose etc as well.

Then we were told that British were defeated by the non violent movement of Gandhi and they gave India independence, but at the last moment, they played a dirty trick and divided the country into two.

Many decades on, when we can gain information from sources other than test books published by the government or gooverment approved publishers, we can have a more holistic picture of things as they unfolded. We now have access to other sources as well as so we can form our own opinion on what was happening those days.

It could be seen that the country, like now, had people with different ideologies and people followed their own ideologies. There were followers of Mahatma Gandhi, but then there were followers of other leaders as well. We have seen that Subhash Chandra Bose had a tremendous following. And his philosophy of gaining independence for India was different from that of Mahatma Gandhi. Since history is written by “victors” and somehow Mahatma Gandhi’s non violent movie has been credited as the reason for India gaining independence so Indian freedom struggle has been penned accordingly.

When one thinks about it dispassionately, one realises that British were no saints who would somehow be shamed by “non violent” movements and would grant independence to India out of shame. There were many factors that made it increasingly difficult for them to continue to rule India. It was a combination of all these factors that finally broke the back of camel and Britain finally granted independence to India and left at the earliest opportunity.

The major cause why Britain left was that two world wars had taken place and it had taken a heavy toll on Britain financially. Britain was the sole superpower of the world before the first world war. After the end of the second wold war Britain was economically on the verge of collapse. They had to take loan from USA the new superpower of the world to keep their economy afloat.

India had contributed a good number of armymen to fight the world wars for Britain. It was the understanding that Britain would grant Indian independence after the world war.

Moreover, with Media (radio, newspapers etc) becoming influential, world opinion was turning in favour of freedom of India and it was becoming difficult for Britain to hang on to its colonies.

When we look at history, we find India was becoming ungovernable from early 1900s, because there were many cases of armed resistance from all over the country.

Not all freedom fighters were moderates. There were radicals as well. In fact , there was a trio of radicals popularly called Lal, Bal, Pal- viz Lala Lajpat Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, and Bipin Chandra Pal. They incidentally, belonged to three major regions of the country and helped spread their message of armed struggle in their regions. Taken together, that was almost entire India. They advocated civil agitation and direct revolution to overthrow the British Empire.

British Government divided Bangal province and that caused widespread resentment among people. The protest against it was violent and quite a few protests died, some in police custody (viz Brahmabhandav Upadhyay) while some were hanged (Khudiram Bose, Bagha Jatin).

Then Draconian Rowlatt act was passed in 1919. Protest against this act led to the Jallianwala Massacre on 13 april 1919. The main perpetrator Dyer was forced to retire but he was hailed as a hero in Britain. Whatever goodwill Indians had for British government evaporated totally.

During 1920s, several armed resistances happened all over the country. One of the more prominent of them was Kakori Case (1925) in UP. Government treasury was looted while it was being carried in a train. In this case, three revolutionaries, namely Ramprasad Bismil, Rajendra Lahiri, Raushan Singh and Ashfaqullh.

It is noticeable that such activities were happening all over India, and in all these cases some people were prompmtly being found guilty and were being sentenced to death, no less. So many people were sentenced to death those days that the claim of Indian freedom fight being mostly non violent does not sound too convincing.

On March 23, 1931, Bhagat Singh along with his associates Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged to death for the killing 21-year-old British police officer John Saunders. They mistook Saunders for Superintendent James Scott, who was responsible for leading a lathi charge against Lala Lajpat Rai, who along with his followers was protesting against the Simon Commission.

Lala Lajpatrai was mortally injured in a Lathi charge on him by police led by Superintendent James Scott, when Lala Lajpatrai was leading a protest march against Simon Commision. Death of Lala Lajpat Rai stung Indians. Bhagat Singh, Bhagat Singh along with his associates Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru decided to avenge it by killing James Scott, but instead they killed 21-year-old British police officer John Saunders.

The case was heard on the court of Lahore Case Tribunal from 5th may 1930 and death penalty was pronounced on 27 october 1930.

Bhagat Singh along with Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged to death this day 88 years ago (23 march 1931).

Several movies have been made on Bhagat Singh. In all these movies, the song “Mera rang de basanti chola” gets played prominently. In these movies the three revolutionaries are seen marching to the gallows while singing this song (or while this song plays in the backgound).

Here is this song from “The Legend of Bhagat Singh”(2002). This song is sung by Sonu Nigam and Manmohan Waris. Sameer is credited as the lyricist, though this lyrics could well be a traditional song. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

बलिदानों का ये सेहरा
बेताब हमारे दिल में
इक मस्ती सी छायी है
अय देश अलविदा तुझको
कहने की घडी आयी है
महकेंगे तेरी फिजा में
हम बनके हवा का झोंका

किस्मत वालों को मिलता आ
ऐसे मरने का मौका

निकली ई है बरात सजा है
इन्किलाब का डोला आ

मेरा रंग दे ए ए ए ए ए ए ए°°°°°

This song I am posting is from the 2010 movie ‘Aisha’ starring Sonam Kapoor & Abhay Deol.  There are other actors but the movie focuses on these two central characters.  It is about characters who do sometimes act out of character.   Aisha is a social butterfly, who dabbles into all i.e. baking, yoga, gardening, drawing, shopping, event management and match making.  In between all this she also finds time to jog in the morning and spends time at animal shelter.  Watching polo match is a foregone conclusion considering her upper class background.  Her charmed circle goes for picnics, stays in tents next to the river and goes river rafting to end the evening singing by the bonfire. She even goes pubbing and parties at farm houses in true Delhi style, in between bitching about a New York returned female colleague of Abhay Deol, who is a corporate slave according to Aisha.  Who wouldn’t want to do all of the above, if one was so inclined within one hour 🙂 .

Sonam Kapoor aka Aisha even goes shopping and transforms a small town girl, Shefali into a clone of herself.  So far as that Abhay Deol, tells her to rename the girl, Maisha or Naisha to rhyme with Aisha.  The film has more crazy antics that Aisha ends up doing. She has access to a tree house too, to sit in the balcony, and make up with the best friend she messed up with.   Wow, how the truly rich people live.  Who wouldn’t want a tree house, who wouldn’t want a real live tree in the house, for that matter.  We all have houses with lots of trees in native places, but cannot stay there.  We want such luxuries here, where we are.  This would be true at least for some of the regulars here, especially those in the metros.

Actually, the film starts and ends with a wedding.  Talking of weddings and looking for a wedding song is what brought me back to this movie, after seeing a whole gamut of Hindi film songs which are about weddings.  My first choice was “Mud Ke Na Dekho Dilbaro” from ‘Raazi’ (2018) which is already posted.   Couple of songs I would have liked to post were also posted like ‘Maaye Ni Maaye” from ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ (1994) posted Peevesie’s Mom.  “Mud Ke Na Dekho Dilbaro” is such a soulful song that I kept playing it in the office after it was posted back in October 2018.  My daughter’s wedding date was fixed for December 2018 and some colleagues / friends who knew it, were quick to point out the aptness of song for the upcoming wedding.

It was Peevesie’s Mom’s post of “Navraai Maajhi Ladaachi Ladaachi Ga” from ‘English Vinglish’ (2012) that gave me the idea of sharing all the good news on my family front.  So let me take this opportunity and congratulate Peevesie’s Mom and family for the important milestone and wish the couple a very long and happy married life.

Almost exactly a month before this happy occasion was the day of our family celebration with our daughters ‘nikaah’ solemnised.  It was our very first experience of personally being responsible for the organisation of an event on this scale.  It is said that man proposes and God disposes.  I have learnt in this event that things have their own way of slipping out of hands and God sends help in the shape of these good souls as ‘Rehmat ke Farishte‘ to save the day.

It was an exciting and hectic period for all of us.

Anyway, as my cousin who is also now daughter’s sister in law too said all that really matters is that the two people getting married are happy together, everything else is secondary.

Coming back to the wedding celebrations, it was my younger sister and brother in law, who did a lot of hard work getting this show on the road.  My daughter being the only girl child among us three sisters, my brother and sister and brother in law really wanted to make an event of it.  They rallied the kids and some adults in the family including my son to make short and cute singing, dancing cameo performances for the Mahendi function.

Alhamdullillah, the year 2018 has been an eventful and fortunate year for us, with my son’s success in NEET’2018 and being admitted in college of his choice in Mumbai and we cannot thank the Almighty Allah(swt) for all the blessings that he has bestowed upon us all.

How time has flown.  When I started contributing in the blog my daughter was still in school and my son was a mischievous hyper-active boy who needed all round supervision and attention.   Now it seems my husband and me both are almost daily try to remind him that he has parents too and he should at least try put in a WhatsApp message in the family group.  Frequently, his phone battery is discharged, or he loses the charger or sitting in the library where his phone has no range.

As the blog moves towards 15000 song post mark, I am trying to send a fair number of song posts.  Hopefully, my posts won’t need too much of proof reading.

This song from ‘Aisha’ has a mukhda fully in Punjabi, which was a bit tricky in getting the lyrics right.  Rather think that I have done a good job of correcting the lyrics which ‘Google’ came up with.  Javed Akhtar’s lyrics and Amit Trivedi’s music and Tochi Raina’s singing make this a good, if peppy number.  I think this Tochi Raina, making his debut in the blog is the same as Toshi Rana, a winner on ‘Indian Idol” years ago, back during my TV watching days.

Chorus

Lyrics (Based on Audio Version)

gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol
masti mein tu vi dol
mann de naina tu khol
chahat ke moti rol
dil haunda ae anmol
ye daulat se na tol
aa soni tainu chaand ki main choodi pehrawa
mainu kar de ishaara te main doli lai aanwa

gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol
masti mein tu vi dol

jaanleva teri adaa
kaise na koi ho fidaa
tera ang sharaara
jaise mare lishkara

dekhan ta dil dhadke
tann mein agan bhadke
surat aisi mannmoni
kiddan dasaan tu hai soni

dekh to keh ke tu mujhe
jaan bhi de dunga tujhe
tera aisa hoon deewana
tu ne ab tak yeh na jaana

aa sohni tainu chaand ki main choodi pehrawa
mainu kar de ishaara te main doli lai aanwa

gal mitthi mitthi bol

Blog Day : 3841 Post No. : 14853

Today (23 january 2019) is the birth anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose, one of the most admired freedom fighters of India.

One year ago, I had written a detailed writeup about his escape from his house arrest. That writeup was accompanied by the song Jodi tor daak..tanha raahi apni raah chalta jaayegaa.

Writing that article was quite a emotional roller coaster ride for me, because I tried to imagine all the meticulous planning of that escape, including the successful execution of the plan.

In the process, I watched snippets of the movie “Bose The forgotten Hero”(2004) which contains this song.

Lyrics of that song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. One year later, he sent the lyrics of another song from the movie to be posted on this occasion with a request of a writeup by me because I have seen the movie. No, I have not seen the movie. I have only seen parts of it, because I cannot bear to see the full movie even though I know that it is a movie and the scenes depicted in the movie happened over seven decades ago.

So, my writeup is not based on my watching the movie, rather it is based on my impressions on Subhash Chandra Bose.

It seems to me, and many people would agree that his contributions towards the independence movement has been vastly underrated and attempts have been made to consign his contribution to just a few lines. We have been fed the history that non violent agitations led by Mahatma Gandhi won us our freedom.

When I try to think about it now, it does not seem to add up. If non violent agitations gave us freedom, then what explains the violence that took place during the partition ? Why the proponents of these non violence agitations agreed to the participation of Indian armymen in the second world war and also the first world war before that ? If people in India really followed non violence, then what explains the Indo Pak wars that took place and the terror attacks that are taking place from across the border.

When one tries to look at the reasons for the independence of India, it appears that the reason why India got independence was not Non violent agitations but it was mainly due to the precarious economical situation of Britain.

Britain which used to be the strongest economy in the world till the 18th century found itself being overtaken by USA and Germany by the turn of 19th century. USA was able to cash in because it pioneered new indstries, viz automobiles, motorbikes and aircrafts and became the leading manufacturer of these new technology items. The first world war and later the second world war devastated British economy. After the second world war ended Britain had lost much of its absolute wealth. Its trade reduced to just one third vis a vis its pre war trade. Dollar had become the preferred currency and Britain had shortage of dollars to pay off its wartime debts. As an emergency measure, Britain began to hive off its overseas assets. USA extracted a heavy price from Britain for getting involved in the second world war. Britain had to take a loan of $ 4.33 billions from USA. Winter of 1946-47 broke the back of British economy, with cutrailed economic production and shortage of coal. The situation reeached its worst in August 1947 !

Is it a coincidence that India got its independence in August 1947 ! With the benefit of all the information contained in the above para, it appears that Britain were in no position to be able to hold on to India any longer. Even if there were no agitations, violent or otherwise, Britain woould have left India sooner or later.

It appears to me that holding on to the Indian empire was becoming more and more prohibitively expensive for Britain. It would seem to me that “Non violent” agitations were not the only thing Britain had to worry. They also had to worry about the real possibility of disenchantment in the natives who manned Indian Army. The contribution of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauz, which actually participated in world war II cannot be underestimated.

The end of the war saw a large number of the troops of Azad Hind Fauz repatriated to India where some faced trials for treason at Red Fort in Delhi. Instead of acting as a deterrent,as hoped by the British, these trials became a galvanising point in the Indian Independence movement. The Bombay mutiny in the Royal Indian Navy and other mutinies in 1946 are thought to have been caused by the nationalist feelings that were caused by the INA trials. Many historians believe that these events played a crucial role in hastening the end of British rule in India.

After independence, Gandhian freedom fighters were given the status of freedom fighters but Azad Hind Fauz members were denied this privilege. Nevertheless, the Azad Hind Fauz remains a popular and passionate topic in Indian culture and politics.

India became politically independent on 15 august 1947. It wold take decades and decades of slog with lots of troubles enroute, before Indian fortunes would begin to look up and they would shrug off the tag of a begging bowl nation and subsequently a nation considered the fastest growing major nation in the world. I would cover this vast topic in another writeup on the occasion of Republic day, which falls three day later.

For now, let us listen to this song of hope. The hopes of securing independence. The hopes of living happily ever after. The song is a chorus song. Jawed Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Ab fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai

Chalo Dilli chal ke rehna hai

Happy Dussehra Atulites

Today’s song is a modern version of the Ram- Raavan story. It is from the 2001 supernatural thriller “Aks” produced by Amitabh Bachchan and Jhamu Sughand. Director was Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The movie had a star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Nandita Das, Manoj Bajpai and Amol Palekar in a special appearance. The songs were written by Gulzar and Anu Malik was the music director. Today’s song is in the voices of Amitabh Bachchan, Nandita Das and Kavita Mundra.

I like the touches of modernism that Gulzar has written into the song:
Lanka- Bharat baant diya hai.
Communication systems have changed- the song mentions phone lines are obsolete and emails were in use. (2018 even emails are rare)
And finally- jab tak ram hai raavan rahega (a real mirror to the times we are in)

Jai Bolo Shree Ram Ki.
Jai Maa Durge. Jai Mata Di.

Blog Day :

 Today we remember the great son this soil Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his birth anniversary.

We remember him for his bravery, courage, determination and supreme sacrifice made for a cause of the people, the people of this country.

He laid down his life at a young age of only 23 years, 5 months, and 25 days. He could have surrendered to the British and chosen a leisurely life enjoying the benefits and luxuries showered by the Britishers on him, had he requested to forgive him as proposed by them. However instead of choosing ‘the life of slavery’ he chose to dedicate his life for the ‘noblest cause – the freedom of his Motherland’ from the Britishers.

He will remain the inspiration for many as long as humanity exists and people read about him and realize what Bhagat Singh was and how great was he to have done so much in one single life of only 23 years.

I have earlier presented my thoughts while presenting the songs ‘Pagdi Sambhaal Jatta’ and ‘Vekho Loko Khidan To Pehlon’. Whatever will be written about him to remember him and his thoughts, is very less in comparison to the legacy he has left for us. And I am sure as the coming generations read about him will find his thoughts still relevant in terms of what his dreams of ‘true freedom’ for India was and what we have achieved after getting our ‘freedom’ – and they will find that yes, we have still miles to go to build this nation in the pursuit of those dreams.

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts the year 2002 was a special year as in that year there were as many as three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

While “23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date the other movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released at a later date.

I will not go into which one amongst them was better than the other. The important thing is that they were made on the life of Bhagat Singh and to make people aware of his true story (may be with a little or more filmy touch).

Today I present a song from the Rajkumar Santoshi directed ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh-2002’. This movie was produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS). It had the star cast of Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, D. Santosh, Akhilendra Mihsra, Raj Babbar, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Mukesh Tiwari, Surendra Rajan, Saurabh Dubey, Kenny Desai, Sitaram Panchal, Bhaskar Chatterjee, Sunil Grover and others.

The screenplay was written by Rajkumar Santoshi, Piyush Mishra and Anjum Rajabali. It was edited by VN Mayekar. Songs for this movie were penned by Sameer and music was composed by AR Rehman.

All songs of this movie composed by AR Rehman are very very good and I liked them as they fill us with patriotic fervour and with a poignant touch, yet making us thoughtful on the life and times of the martyrs and their feelings for their motherland.

Today’s song is in two parts and is sung by AR Rehman and Sukhwinder Singh.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now …

Desh Mere Desh Mere Meri Jaan Hai Tu …

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I don’t know if anyone has noticed the current obsession that I am displaying. Many of my contributions to the blog in this calendar year have been to celebrate the birthdays of artists who are otherwise called “character artist” or “supporting cast”.

Has anyone tried to visualise what story “The Ramayana” would have been if there was no Dasharatha, Kaikeyi, Sugriva, Hanuman, Vibhishana or even Ravan. Can one think of “The Mahabharat” minus Duryodhana, Shakuni, Kunti, or any of the “supporting characters”? Where would “Sholay” be without Gabbar, or the fate of “Mr. India” without Mogambo. Can one think of “Parichay” minus the cute kids of the family, “Chupke Chupke” without Jijaji, “Golmaal” without Bhavani Shankar; “Deewar” minus THE MAA. That means all stories, be they the epics or modern tales, need characters which are good, bad, ugly or in-between, around the main characters for the story to be interesting.

Thank God Indian movies follow the story-pattern set by the epics and have given us quality actors who don’t mind playing second fiddle to the main characters so-much-so that sometimes their acting out the character overshadows the character of the main lead itself.

Today’s post also celebrates the birthday of one such actor without whose presence Manoj Kumar’s “Shaheed”, “Purab Aur Paschim”, “Upkaar” or “Kranti” cannot be imagined. Rajesh Khanna’s 15 (out of the 19 that they were co-actors in) jubilee hits would be unthinkable and it seems that distributors, back then, backed any movie with this hero-villain Jodi. Similarly, his pairing with Bindu was also much sought after in movies till even in the 90s. This actor was successful for his villainy without gizmos or funny names. And he is one of the many actors whose work has always been appreciated by the audiences; who will be able to survive in the cut-throat competition that Bollywood has. He has played second fiddle to so many of his contemporary villains even after attaining success with ‘Kati Patang’, ‘Upkaar’, ‘Teesri Manzil’ etc.

He was known for his one-liners. For example “main woh bala hoon jo sheeshay se patthar ko todta hai” in Kati Patang; “jinke ghar sheeshe kain ho woh batti bhujakar kapde badalte hain” in Souten; then in the next decade of his career these one-liners went a step further towards enhancing his comic characters with gems like “bhains poonch uthayegi to gaana to nahi gayegi, gobar hi degi” in Aaj Ka Arjun; “kar bhala toh hoga bhala” in Raja Babu and the most charming one-liner of all “nanga nahayega kya aur nichodega kya” in Dulhe Raja. Aah! Now I can see that gleam of excitement in those reading this, and so I will not write his most famous one-liner “Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra” in Bobby

Before I began to write this post, I was hunting for songs with Prem Chopra in them. My logic was mostly all actors start out with the wish to play the main lead. There would be at least a movie or two where Prem Chopra was the HERO and sung some songs to the heroine. And sure enough I found a few but then they are already posted on our blog – “Tum Apni Saheli Ko. . .” (‘Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo’, 1970), “Paanv Mein Painjaniya, Naache Sajaniya. . .” (‘Kunwaari’, 1966), “London Se Aaya Hoon Albela” (‘Vachan’, 1973) & “Aaj Pila De Saaqi Apni Aankhon Ke Paimaane Se” (‘Doli’, 1969). But as a villain also he has sung a song in a train as part of a mission to loot an inspector played by Krishan Dhawan – “Raah Mein Kaliyan Khila ke Yaar” (‘Nafrat’, 1973). Then there are numerous songs where the heroine sings a romantic song to the handsome (many times more good-looking than the hero himself) Prem Chopra in a bid to evoke a response from the hero as in “Kitna Mazaa Aa Raha Hai. . .” (‘Raja Jaani’, 1972). Then there is the song from Sikandar-e-Azam without which no TV or Radio program is complete on the national holidays of Independence Day and Republic Day – “Jahaan Daal Daal Par Soney Ki. . .“. Just that the number of songs lip-synced by Prem Chopra is few. But there are such songs available and he is one of the lucky oldies (today being his 83rd birthday) to be still active in movies and getting to play meaningful characters and also sing once in a while.

He is related to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife is sister to Krishna Kapoor, wife of Raj Kapoor. By that, he also is brother-in-law of Premnath, Rajendranath etc. His three daughters are married to actors Sharman Joshi, Vikas Bhalla and publicity designer Rahul Nanda- all connected with Bollywood.

About today’s song. I have seen this movie a few years ago on TV (of course) and was happy to see three characters as the protagonists of the movie. ‘Umar’ (2006) was written and directed by Karan Razdan (remember him from the Doordarshan serial ‘Rajani’). It had music by Shamir Tandon and Shaily Shailendra was the lyricist. It starred Kadar Khan, Satish Kaushik, Prem Chopra and Jimmy Shergill in the lead with Shakti Kapoor, Shenaz Treasurywala, Dalip Tahil etc. in supporting cast. It is a story of three old men living the last years of their life in the UK. The three have problems of their own viz. their children ill-treating them, racial discrimination etc. They find solace from an affectionate young man (Jimmy) who is a student and a singer / waiter at a bar. This young man gets embroiled in the murder of his owner and the three elderly men help him run from the law making them fugitives too. But then there were a few songs in that movie which centred around Kadar Khan, Prem Chopra and Satish Kaushik. This was a movie which in Atulji’s words “didn’t try to please all” and so was not very successful at that time possibly what used to be called an “art movie” in the 70s and 80s are now called movies for the “multiplex audience”.

Todays’ song is sung by Kavita Krishnamurty, Sonu Nigam, Manna Dey and Shabab Sabri.

Wishing Prem, Prem Chopra a very Happy Birthday. Thank you for entertaining us all your life.

Blog Day : 3681 Post No. : 14576

Greetings to all friends and readers, as India celebrates another anniversary of its freedom from foreign domination.

A lot can be and has been said and debated about this theme, in the press, in the media, in personal conversations. . . there is never a perfect closure to these discussions. Yes, the honor of the nation is an emotion that should and almost always does, transcend all other emotions. I say almost, because, at least in my evaluation of an individual’s relationships with the surroundings and the society, the matters of culture and humanism would at times weigh in more than national pride. In my mind, the definitions of national boundaries are quite artificial. They are more often than not, drawn by vested and many a times malicious intentions. Humanism, on the other hand, has no boundaries, period, none whatsoever across the planet. And culture – well it is defined more by environmental forces and the flow of historical compulsions. Culture grows. It develops and spreads driven by natural boundaries, and human acceptance of that which correctly conforms to the natural affinities and tendencies.

History, they say, is always written by the victorious. And they also say, that the Gods favor the righteous. One would thus expect the flow of human experience should be more correct and righteous. But it is not. The history of the human experiences is fraught more with misery and evil, than anything else. In the circumspect analysis, one would then conclude contrary to “. . . the Gods favor the righteous”, that might is right. Because more often than not, the victorious generally are the stronger contender, and also, more often than not, they are ruthless in their beliefs. And if not, the victory brings them to that point where they become so. Power corrupts – invariably.

Of all the good and bad topics in the history of what we call the struggle for independence of India, for me, the most punishing act inflicted on our nation, and more importantly, our culture, was the partition of our land. And lest we forget, our nation was partitioned more than once, and quite surreptitiously, before the much celebrated and bloody events of 1947.

First, in 1896, the Durand Line was drawn that created Afghanistan. For millennia before that, even before the Muslim and Mughal clans invaded India, the kings of this subcontinent had ruled over the land of Afghans and beyond, and had the regions of Samakkand and Bukhara in their regime. That was the first cut.

Then, in 1914, a conference was held in Simla. The McMahon line was announced and the Tibetan regions were delinked from India, formally by creating an international boundary. The next cut came in 1937 – the boundaries on the east were redrawn and Burma was carved out as a state, separate from India. And then, of course the cruelest cut of all, came in 1947 with the adoption of the Radcliffe line and the creation of a separate nation of Pakistan in two parts, the West and the East. Over a period of just about 50 years, a grand continent nation with its grand culture, that stretched from the Pamirs in Central Asia, to as far as Siam (now Thailand) and Cambodia in the Far East, was reduced to half its original spread.

Going across a vast region of land, having a variety of geographies – plains, mountains and deserts, having people speak more than a thousand dialects, having people with a plethora of contrarian food habits – still this vast expanse of land was united by a single seminal culture that arose from the earth of this sub-continent.

Couple of days back, when I was doing some research on ‘Urvashi’ and Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, for the post by Bharat Bhai, my eyes caught another related reference – a historical treatise of major proportions, authored by the same Dinkar. The title – ‘संस्कृति के चार अध्याय’ (‘Sanskriti Ke Chaar Adhyaye’ – a history of our culture in four chapters). In this path break historical thesis, Dinkar has charted the course of evolution of the culture of this subcontinent. The first segment talks about the Vedic origins of our culture. The second segment examines the rise of Buddhism and Jainism – the conflict and then the subsequent coming together in a single society. The third segment documents the advent of Islam, the reign of the Islamic dynasties – once again, the conflict and then the subsequent genesis of the Ganga-Jamni culture of peaceful co-existence. The fourth segment studies the invasion by the European kingdoms and the associated arrival of Christanity to the shores of this nation. Yet once again, discusses the conflict and the eventual prevalence of the merged society.

Over the ages, the culture of this land has exhibited a remarkable resilience to external influences, even potentially destructive influences. In the four phases of the history researched and documented by Dinkar, each phase establishes the thought supremacy of the tolerant and humanist culture of this land, that imbibed all that came to it, accepted them as different and yet the same, allowed a peaceful coexistence outside of the political machinations, and made the foreigners love it, and blend into it. That, in my opinion, is the superlative strength of this culture. And just because of this strength, I believe this culture will never be, it cannot be – destroyed. No wonder, our forefathers called it the ‘सनातन संस्कृति’ – a culture that is timeless, without a beginning and without an end.

I have a dream. Generally it is said – dreams are dreams. And nothing more. But still – I have a dream. And the dream comes from my desire to be able to go back to the land of my familial ancestors, to the places where my parents and grandparents were born and where they lived and thrived. The partition of 1947 was a disaster of proportions much greater than the Holocaust that was wreaked upon Europe by Hitler and his Germany. The number of people who suffered at the hands of the Third Reich is of the order of 5 million. The 1947 partition consumed anywhere between 10 to 20 million people on both sides of the border. And yet, the world historians do not discuss this monumental human tragedy as what it really is.

That is the power of subjugation and slavery that our self serving political leadership has always accepted and acquiesced to. There are many examples in world history, where nations have been partitioned and separated, and then they have come together once again, because the people wanted it to be so. The US has seen its own flavor of this partition during the Civil War (1861 – 1865), but they fought to bring it back together. Germany was partitioned in 1945 and the people finally toppled the Berlin Wall in 1989. Vietnam was divided and it fought the greatest superpower for decades, so it could be one once again. And now the efforts for Korea are beginning to be heard.

I have a dream, which I am quite sure will always remain a dream.

The song I present today is from a film that needs not introductions. Three songs of this musical bonanza are already showcased on our blog. I picked this film and this song for this post, because this film, as recently as 14 years ago, made a very courageous attempt to call out a spade, a spade. It is this and other similar literary and cultural expressions that give a breath of life to the dream I have. And the thing that I simply love about this film and this song, is the unabashed expression that confirms that the two neighbors are the same land and the same culture.

aisa des hai mera
ho oo
jaisa des hai tera

Ah yes, this song confirms my dream. But I also know that my dream will always remain a dream. . .

The film is ‘Veer Zaara’ from 2004. It has been a popular hit in its time, and I am sure I do not need to cover more details – friends and readers are likely already familiar. The song is written by Javed Akhtar. The music has been adapted from the unused tunes created by the late Madan Mohan, which are now in the collection of his son, Sanjeev Kohli. The singing voices are those of Udit Narayan, Lata Mangeshkar, Pritha Majumdar, and the famous Punjabi folk singer and actor Gurdas Maan, who makes a brief cameo appearance in this song itself.

Today morning, I read an article written by Anupam Sinha, that was carried in the Indian Express newspaper. Readers will be familiar with this name – he is the director of ‘Mulk’, the Rishi Kapoor starrer that is released just recently – on the 3rd of this month itself. In the film and the in the article, Anupam Sinha is raising many uncomfortable questions about the direction of the destiny of this nation and this land. Questions that today are becoming more and more difficult to articulate in the evolving ethos of the culture of this sub continent. That says quite a bit, doesn’t it. Yes, it is becoming more and more difficult to raise such questions.

That is the source of my fears – that my dream is always going to remain a dream. . .

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 19
———————————————————————

मिले ना फूल
तो काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰ ॰ ॰

दस बरस पहले, एक सफर शुरू हुआ – एक सफर जिसका कुछ भी नियत नहीं था, कुछ निश्चित प्रयोजन नहीं था, कुछ आशा भी नहीं थी के ये सिलसिला जाने कब तक चले। बस सिर्फ एक धुन, और एक नग़मा – ले चला जिधर ये दिल निकल पड़े।

और साथ ये भी कह दिया कि मंज़िल कहाँ कहाँ रुकना है ऊपर वाला जाने॰ ॰ ॰

कुछ मालूम नहीं था ये सफर क्या शक्ल हासिल करेगा। क्या कोई हमसफर मिलेगा? मालूम नहीं, ये सोचा भी था के नहीं। लेकिन फिर भी क्या॰॰॰ एक ज़िंदगी का तार पकड़ कर चल दिये। और सोचा यूं कि चलते चलो चलता हुआ साहिल है ज़िंदगी। ये तो अच्छा किया कि दूर की सोची नहीं। अब तीन साल में क्या हो या पाँच सात साल में क्या होगा ऐसी हर फिक्र को धुएँ में उड़ाते हुये, बस एक दिन और एक गीत – इस क्रम पे चलना शुरू किया।

कहते हैं, जब कर्म और विचार में खोट नहीं, तो प्रकृति, दिशाएँ, तत्व, देव – सब कुछ ही साथ हो संबल देते है।  दस साल पहले जो सफर अकेले ही शुरू हुआ था, आज इन दस साल के बाद अब इसकी गिनती करोड़ों में होती है।  क्रम नहीं बदला, नीयत नहीं बदली – जो बदला वो बस यही के लोग साथ आते गये और कारवां बढ़ता गया।

दस साल बाद भी, आज कोई पूछे तो जवाब नहीं बदला – ये हँसता हुआ कारवां ज़िंदगी का न पूछो चला है किधर॰॰॰।

कितने पड़ाव आए और गुज़र गये, कितने ही मील पत्थर रास्ते में मिले और नज़रों से ओझल हुये।  इस सफर में हम कहाँ कहाँ से गुज़र गये – देस भी घूमा, दुनिया भी घूमी; सागर, नदियां, पर्वत, वादियाँ, जंगल और सैहरा, रास्ते और गलियाँ, पनघट और खलिहान, बाज़ार भी, मेले भी और अकेले भी – सब कोने छू लिए। कभी रेल में, तो कभी मोटर कार में, कभी घोड़े कि टापों के संग, तो कभी रिक्शे में। कभी बैल कि गाड़ी में घूमे, तो कभी तांगे के हिचकोले खाये। कशतियों में कभी झीलों का झरोखा, और कभी जहाज़ में समुद्र का दीदार किया। साइकल की सैर भी की, और कभी प्लेन से सारी धरती को देखा। और तो और, क्रेन, ट्रक और ट्रैक्टर को भी नहीं छोड़ा।

कभी हरी दर्शन को तड़पते मन देखे, कभी मदीने की दुआएं मांगी।  कभी बंजारों के गीत सुने, और तो फिर कभी सूफी के कलाम। बुद्ध कि शरण में गये तो कभी येशु के दर पे सर झुकाया। कभी सृष्टि के चित्रकार को ढूँढा, और कभी कर्म गति की शिक्षा सुनी। कभी शुक्राने फरमाए उस खुदा की बंदगी में, तो कभी ज़िंदगी से ऊब कर उसे खूब खरी खोटी भी सुनाई।

कभी किसी नाज़नीं से लहंगे कि फरमाइश सुनी, और कभी प्रेमी कि ज़ुबान से चाँद कि उपमाएँ। कभी बरसात ने दिल लुभाया, तो कभी बात बात में मैंने दिल तुझको दिया। कभी गर्मी की धूप से बचने की सलाह देखी, तो कभी बर्फ की सर्दी को दिल की आंच से कम होते देखा।

गोद में बच्चों को सुलाते हुये माँ कि लोरियाँ सुनी, तो कभी बच्चों से माँ के आँचल कि पुकार। नग़में सुने दोस्ती के और ग़ज़लें सुनी इश्क़ की।  मोहब्बत के जलवों से रोशन जन्नत के नज़ारे किए, तो कभी टूटे दिल के नालों ने हमें भी रुलाया।

कभी दिल मचला और झूम के गा उठा – किसान अपनी फसल देख के, फौजी छुट्टी पर घर जाते हुये, इक जवान दिल इश्क़ का इक़रार पा कर, और तो कभी बस इस कायनात की खूबसूरती पर।

कभी दिल रोया और रो कर गाया – भीख मांगते हुये बच्चे, कोई बिछड़ कर जाने लगा, कभी मोहब्बत के धोखे उठाए, और तो कभी किस्मत के थपेड़ों की शिकायत में।

कभी एक चोर की कहानी सुनी, कभी बिक्री वालों से उनकी उम्दा दलीलें सुनी, कभी मेहनतकशों की प्रेरणा भा गई, और तो कभी सड़क पे तमाशों के नज़ारे किए।

हुस्न की जल्वानुमाई देखि, तो कभी हुस्न के एहसान; कभी हुस्न की संगदिली ज़ाहिर हुई, तो कभी सिर्फ शिकवों का ज़िक्र हुआ। फ़लक पे सूरज चाँद और तारों की कहानी सुनी, तो कभी शराब की मस्ती शराबी की जुबानी सुनी।

फूलों से किसी कमसिन के चेहरे को मुक़ाबिल देखा, तो कभी किसी अल्हड़ की लापरवाह चाल से झरनों की उपमा हुई।

कसमें वादे होते देखे साँसों की हद तक, और कभी टूटे वादों के साथ दिल के टुकड़े बिखरते देखे।

कोई जश्न का मौका छूटा नहीं, कोई नाम अछूता रहा नहीं।

कभी धरती और देश के झंडे से बुलंद हुये, तो कभी इंसानी ज़ुल्म से हताश।

कभी शहीदों की कहानियाँ पलटीं, तो कभी भली आत्माओं का दर्शन किया।

सुख की घड़ियाँ, दुख के बादल; हंसी के लम्हे, आँसू की ढलकन; मिलने की खुशी, ना मिलने का ग़म; प्यार का झगड़ा, बेवफाई के ज़ख्म; बारात का बाजा, दिल का राजा; मंदिर का दीपक, खुदा से दुआएं; रिश्तों की संवेदना, और साथ ही वेदना; प्यार का फलसफा, और ज़िंदगी की तालीम।

कभी वो गीत में, कभी नज़्म में, कभी ग़ज़ल में, तो कभी भजन में, कभी ट्विस्ट में तो कभी डिस्को में; कभी क़व्वाली में, तो कभी सहगान में; कभी कविता जैसी लगी, तो कभी कथा जैसी; कभी तुम्हारी छवि दिखी, कभी उसकी; और तो ज़्यादा कहानी अपनी सी लगी।

दस साल। दस साल और पन्द्रह हज़ार उमंगें। रोज़ की नई नवेली। कभी लगता भी है कि पहले सुना था, लेकिन फिर भी लगता है नया सा। कितने सारे भावों की बरसात हुई है, क्या बेशुमार दौलत मिली है – दस साल में। नायाब खजाना है। और सोचो तो, शुरू कहाँ से किया था – “॰॰॰काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰॰॰”। मुनासिब ही तो है, ये दौलत काँटों से गुज़र के ही पाते हैं। और तमन्नाएं॰॰॰ उनका तो कहना ही क्या। कुछ मिल जाये, इसकी तो फिक्र कभी थी ही नहीं। बस एक ही बात, एक ही लगन॰॰॰ दिल चाहता है॰॰॰  साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

जी हाँ, दिल चाहता है। जब एक गाना ढूंढ रहा था इस जश्न के लिए, तो मन बहुत घूमने के बाद इस बात पे ठहरा कि एक सफरनामा होना चाहिए, एक गाना जिस में बस सफर हो, कोई मंज़िल न हो। जिसमें बस हमख्यालों का दख़ल हो। जो सब मेरे हमकदम हों, मेरे हमनशीं, मेरे हमज़ुबाँ हों। अपनी यादों और आदतों से वहीं ढूँढता रहा साठ और सत्तर से पहले। इत्तेफाक़ देखिये, मिला तो बखूबी वही जो दिल चाहता है। हाँ ‘दिल चाहता है’ – फिल्म भी वही और नग़मा भी वही। 2001 में जारी हुई ये फिल्म मेंने उन्हीं दिनों में अपने सफरगुज़ारी के दौरान देखी। न जाने क्यों, इस फिल्म से मोहब्बत हो गई। और खास कर के इस गाने से। हल्की सी मस्ती की लहर में हल्का सा ढुलकता सा गाना, सुस्ताता हुआ, आलसी सा गाना, धीरे धीरे बहता जैसे बहार में सुबह कि मीठी सी सबा॰॰॰ लापरवाही में एक प्रतिबिम्बित चिंतन॰॰॰ गाना तो ऐसे मन को भाया के बस।

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

होता है ना कभी कभी ऐसे ही। कुछ ऐसा कहा जाता है दो लफ्जों में, के और कुछ कहने की कसर बाकी रहती नहीं। जो बात मन की है, वो बस इतनी ही मुकम्मल है, जो ऊपर लिखे मिसरों में ब्याँ हो गई – तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

और कुछ कहना वाजिब नहीं।

इस फिल्म के ज़्यादातर किरदारों को पहली बार देखा था। बहुत सालों बाद एक हिन्दी फिल्म देखी थी शायद। मन को जम गई। 🙂

गीत जावेद अख्तर का लिखा है, संगीत बद्ध किया शंकर-एहसान-लोय कि तिकड़ी ने। गाने वाली आवाज़ शंकर महादेवन की है। स्क्रीन पर ये गाना बैक्ग्राउण्ड में फिल्माया गया। और क्या असरदार फिल्माया गया। गीत ही गीत सुनता है, बाकी सब खामोशी है। एक तुष्टि की, एक पूर्णता की खामोशी है। एक खुशी भरी सुस्ती की खामोशी है॰॰॰ जो दिल चाहता है वो मुझे मिला है॰॰॰ ऐसी खामोशी है

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस॰॰॰ सिलसिलेवार

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

[Author’s Note: Apologies due on many counts, including the sudden and surprising change in the presentation language above. The writing started and then I just couldn’t stop the flow. And so I let it flow. In case there are requests, I can add the English translation also. Regarding the gap in celebration sequence, that story is coming up tomorrow. 🙂 ]

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन
दिन दिन भर हों
प्यारी बातें
झूमें शामें
गायें रातें
मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ
दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन

जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
अपने वास्ते
जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
अपने वास्ते

ओ ओ ओss
ओss ओss ओ ओss ओss ओss
ओ ओ ओss
ओss ओss ओ ओss ओss ओss

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है
जहाँ रुकें हम
जहाँ भी जाएँ
जो हम चाहें
वो हम पाएँ
मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

कैसा अजब ये सफर है
सोचो तो हर एक ही बेखबर है
उस को जाना किधर है
जो वक़्त आए
जाने
क्या दिखाये

ओ ओ ओss
ओss ओss ओ ओss ओss ओss
ओ ओ ओss
ओss ओss ओ ओss ओss ओss
ओ ओ ओss
ओss ओss ओ ओss ओss ओss

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
हाँ हाँ
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन
दिन दिन भर हों
प्यारी बातें
झूमें शामें
गायें रातें
मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ
जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
अपने वास्ते
जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
