This is a song for the rainy season. I have the lyrics noted with me since last year’s rainy season, but the post never got written. This is from the film Chameli (2003), which has 6 songs and Sunidhi Chauhan is the singer in all of them. Two are duets and the rest 4 are solo songs. This rain song is one of the solos. Sandesh Shandilya is the composer and lyricist is Irshad Kamil. This must be a record of sorts for the new millennium, one singer singing in all songs. Today is 14th August and it is Sunidhi Chauhan’s birthday. Can’t say for sure that there is no better song for celebrating the event, but the song is quite good. Sunidhi Chauhan is very versatile and has made a name for herself in her field. She has followed the footsteps of Alka Yagnik and a predecessor to Shreya Ghoshal. There was enough scope for many singers to work and make a name.

I was meant to watch the film for writing the post, but that was not to be. So, I have not seen the film, and as far as I know, I have seen only this song. The other details are available (here. This was a hit song and was all over the FM channels when the movie was new. Come to think of it, it sounds as if it is very new song and not 17 year old. Meaning it has fallen on unsuspecting ears all through the 16 years. For the last one year, this has been growing on me. Now it has come of age and time for it to arrive on the blog.

Kareena is singing this song in the rain and it is clear that she is a prostitute, in the movie.

The other day I read this post by Atul Jee . In this post he gave some highlights of Munshi Premchand’s life. Munshi Premchand’s literary contributions I was aware of since school days, through lessons in text books. It is an appreciable quality that he practiced what he preached in terms of women’s rights. A belief has to be translated into deeds, only than it is a belief otherwise it is hypocrisy. I can imagine how difficult it was for Munshi Premchand to go against the society norms and marry a widow in those times. But I dare say, for a large section of the population of undivided india, this was no crime. Widow remarriage, divorcee remarriage all was legally allowed for them. A part of the illiterate population may not have known about those rights, is another matter, being a socio-economic problem.

India’s struggle of independence was a revolutionary period in many aspects with society struggling with changes and newer values.
The struggle for women’s rights is a classic case study, in my opinion. And we have lost the game in our developed sense of rightness.
Over the centuries, women demanded voting rights, got them. They wanted property rights, got them. They want to be treated as an equal; they are getting there all the time. Right to divorce, right to re-marry etc. the list is endless.

But all through this so called cultural revolution and great emancipation of women in the last one century, one indignity, which I consider an ultimate insult to womanhood, has been blatantly allowed to flourish. A woman who is the mother of mankind is made to suffer this atrocity as a ‘profession’. It is a legalized profession in many countries of this modern world. By what law and rule of justice and fraternity, is this explainable or excusable? This is the social development the human race has achieved in 3+ millennia of recorded history.

All great religions of the world, all the prophets, all the emperors and kings, all just and unjust rulers of the civilized world, have taken their bow. And who among them was ever able to ensure a just and dignified life to women?
Where women were not made to suffer such humiliating life,
Where women had property rights and voting rights,
Where women had right to divorce, remarry and conjugal rights,
Where there existed a system for social security equality for all including women and their children, which more than adequately provided for all their needs, legally, without having to compromise on dignity and self-respect.

Everyone knows that ‘prostitution’ is a social evil. But has any one ever taken a step to eradicate it?

Many poets have raised the issue, and received accolades for his efforts. But poets can only show a mirror to the society, society has to make the correction itself. The poets alone cannot do it for the whole society.

Saahir said : Sansaar ki har ek besharmi, gurbat it god mein palti hai….
This is no longer true in our social set up of the modern world.

Some social reformers might have tried to oppose this practice, but there is no end to this, as far as the eye can see. The answer to the questions is available within this universe. One only needs to have eyes and ears and sense to find it. The universal rules of economics apply here, but calling it the oldest profession in the world will not suffice.

The civilization has made no progress in my opinion, as this most degrading of all social-economic condition is allowed to prevail. We the citizens of this world are responsible for this.

May be it is time that the civilization looks at this issue in the morally correct and humane way. It is less a women’s issue and more a social issue.

I have digressed enough now. Coming back to the song, let us enjoy this song as a song for “barsaat ka mausam”.

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.

Today, 6th April, is the birth anniversary of Sanjay Suri, a star of our current times.

Born this day in 1971, he is a native of Srinagar in Kashmir.  In 1990, his father was killed in a terrorist attack, and his family was forced to flee their hometown.  They came to Jammu and then settled down in Delhi.

Browsing through this blog today, my eye fell upon a song category which was “chai song”. The word chai makes me think immediately of one of my best friends ever, lets call her V. We worked in the same office, but it took another common friend who worked elsewhere to introduce us. My friend H got to know her and upon finding out where she worked immediately called me up and said “You must go and talk to this girl called V, she is truly bindaas, you will like her.”

Today (8th February) is the birthday anniversary of Jagjit Singh. On this occasion, here is a ghazal sung by him.

The ghazal is from a movie that is quite new by the standards of this movie. Mr Sadanand Kamath, who sent me the lyrics of this movie allayed my fears by assuring me that the song does have the familiar old world feel about it which we are used to in the songs that are discussed in this blog.

I am of the opinion that most great Bollywood songs on any topic were created before 1980. After 1980, there was a steady deterioration in the quality of such songs where lyrics took the back seat and plagiarised “disco” tunes replaced erstwhile tunes.
