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
देख ना सकूँ
अञ्जाने रास्ते

When I was pointed into the right direction, i.e. JK Rowling and Harry Potter, then the mystery dissolved away, and the nickname ‘Peevesie’ came out in a better light. And after spending maybe an hour with her, the significance of the nickname also eased itself into my mind. In the Harry Potter series, Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is known as the spirit of chaos around the school. And so, picking up from her favorite series of teenage adventures, the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself. Hmmm. . . is it that the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself and was then known as Peevesie, or is it that she picked this nickname and then her mom came to be known as Peevesie’s Mom – it is getting a little mixed up in the order in which the things may have happened.

I am not a great travelogue writer, though my husband is always after me to write something about the various trips we undertake. But this time I am going to try my hand at describing a trip I went for in the first few days of May. To accomplish that I have decided to take a break from my list of romantic songs (in my march onto 10000) and write about a lovely encounter with a known unknown person who is a friend for the last 5- 6 years without ever having met.

About a month back, I, my wife and four of my close relatives visited Leh-Ladakh on a two week’s trip. Rather than a relaxed holiday, the trip was an experience in itself. A flight from Delhi for Leh meant that there would be an altitude gain from 292 metres in Delhi to 3550 metres in Leh in about one hour time. It was the best option from the point of view of acclimatisation at a higher altitude. So we had to confine ourselves to our hotel rooms in Leh for 24 hours without doing much of an exertion as part of acclimatisation processes for getting used to the lesser oxygen at higher altitude. Furthermore, during our trip, we were to cross three very high altitude mountain passes – Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable road (5600 metre or 18380 feet above sea level) for visiting Nubra Valley, Chang La, the world’s third highest motorable road (5360 metres or 17585 feet) for visiting Pangong Lake and Fotu La ( 4100m or 13480 feet) for going to Kargil. Fortunately, we did not face much of a problem except some mild altitude sickness experienced by two of my relatives which got resolved quickly as we descended.

daraaren daraaren hain maathhe pe maula
marammat muqaddar ki kar do maula

These lines written by Prasoon joshi for this qawwali in the film Delhi – 6 have a fascination, that in indescribable. But still let me try.
