This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.

Blog regulars report that when they finally meet another blog regular in person for the first time, it never appears to them that they are meeting for the first time. It appears that they have known each other for years.

Secondly, it is reported that the persons they meet look extremely humble and self effacing, despite possessing extraordinary abilities that we in the blog are privy to for years.

I have never met Prakashchandra. Others too have not met him. That way he is as elusive a regular as our Avinash Scrapwala used to be once upon a time till he broke his hoodoo and became quite a regular gangouter as he suddenly went on a gangout attending spree, meeting other regulars at Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai.

Prakashchandra may not have met others face to face, but it appears to me (and to others as well) that we know him for years.

Prakashchandra started his association with the blog as a farmaish sender and he was soon hailed as a farmaish king by Peevesie’s mom. A sensitive person that he is, he once felt that his long list of farmaishes were being resented by some regulars. I had to assure him that it was not the case.

Prakashchandra reminded me so much of the Jhumri Tilaiyya farmaish senders of yore. 🙂

His farmaishes sometimes caused me to post songs that I was not aware of and which were rare songs.

Prakash Chandra once (in late 2010) mentioned about a song, which was an ideal song to listen to late at night, but he had not been able to locate the song. So he was only able to listen to this song on radio, once in six months or so. He hoped that I would be able to locate this song and discuss it in the blog.

His description made me very curious about this song, and I spent one whole day to search for this elusive song. Finally I managed to find this rare song.

Prakash Chandra was right. This song was indeed an ultimate Chhaayaageet song. Very few people may have heard this song till then. If one listens to this song twice, then from the second time onward, this song grows up on you.

And that is how I posted this song from “Girls’ Hostel” (1962) in the blog.

And pat came the effusive thanks from Prakashchandra

“Aapne woh kaam kar diya, ke main bayaan nahin kar sakta, ke main aapse kis kadar khush hoon”
thanks thanks thanks, tahank a zillion times
love you love you love you
prakash

Not just him, quite a few other music lovers exclaimed that they re discovered this forgotten gem after decades, thanks to this post. Of course, the thanks were due to Prakashchandra.

Reading prakashchandra’s comments in the blog, where he bares his heart about his feelings on the blog and his association with the blog never fails to warm the hearts of the readers.

From night 11`o clock and to 12`o clock,Now It is a compulsive habit to sit and writing the lyrics .

School ki homework bhi main itni maze lekar aur itne devotion ke saath nahin kartaa thaa 🙂

1 month ago, when I lost Internet connectivity to the blog for 5 days, I felt ,How much I am attached to you guys. I missed you guys and the blog terribly. I love you all guys.

I have silently,learnt many things from all of you guys through your writings, thoughts.I owe many a things to this blog and you people.Really I mean it.

Meri likhaawat yaa kissee aur cheez se unconsciously, koyee bhool, chhook ho toh mujhe sabhi maaf kar do, Please..

Par itnaa pyaar hameshaa aap sab logon se miltaa rahe, yehi bhagwaan se main maangtaa hoon.

Prakashchandra has indepth knowledge of songs. He knows the differences in the lengths of the audio version and movie version of a particular song. Every single second of the song matters to him. His day is made if one could provide a song link that is a few seconds longer than those available online. Just a few days back, he commented that his sunday was made when I posted a longer audio of a song of “Geet” (1970).

Prakashchandra is not just a lyrics sender. His contributions contain lots and lots of additional information about the movie, songs and artists as well. He is also an expert in identifying old forgotten actors that few people have even heard of. We have seen “CID” TV serial, where every eye witness is able to give a very accurate description of suspects, even though they may have seen them only once and that too for just a few seconds. Prakashchandra is like those “CID” TV serial witnesses with photographic memories. 🙂

Prakashchandra is also aware about Hindi movies that are remakes of South Indian movies and vice versa. His contributions contain lots of such difficult to find nuggets of information.

Prakashchandra tends to be a little unsure of himself and is always very particular to make sure that he does not hurt the feelings of others. He feels that refuting the views of others, providing incorrect information, seeking information, or making suggestions to others would somehow hurt the feelings of others, and so he is a bit apologetic while posting his comments. 🙂

He seeks pardon when he corrects others, and also when he asks for information. While giving information, he mentions that he is “only” 99.9 % sure of his identifications. 🙂 Some regulars would exhort him to be more assertive in such matters. 🙂 He is afraid of hurting the feelings of others even when he is giving a suggestion to them/ complimenting them. 🙂

Prakashchandra also regularly goes through old posts. when he finds something amiss (like say dead links, or incorrect information), he points them out in his comments.

Despite enormous knowledge of HFM and despite his considerable contributions in the blog, Prakashchandra remains humble and self effacing.

Prakashchandra has so far not met any regulars. He may be feeling that other regulars are overachievers and he himself is not. He has been very accurately described as akin to a “Kasturi Mrig” by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia. Just as a Kasturi Mrig is not aware of his own fragrance, Prakashchandra is not aware of his own over achievements in the field of HFM research. I am sure that other regulars, including myself, would count ourselves as lucky when we get to meet the person behind such enormous achievements and abilities.

We in this blog have regulars who are valuable “Ratna” (gems) in the field of HFM appreciation. Each of these individuals brings his/ her own special qualities to the blog and enriches it immensely. Prakashchandra is one of the priceless gems that we in this blog have. His immense knowledge, yet his humility is so heart warming to see. He has sent me lots and lots of contributions and many of them have not yet been covered. Some of his contributions have been covered several years after they were first sent. In addition, some of his contributions were credited to others because others had also sent lyrics of the same songs. Even when Prakashchandra feels hurt on not getting credits for some of the songs that he may have sent, he always remains magnanimous and continues to contribute to the blog with a Yogi like stoicism. These are qualities that are worth emulating, and I must say that I find these qualities highly admirable and I too try to adopt such qualities in my life.

It is a matter of privilege for this blog that Prakashchandra completes 1000 song contributions in the blog with this song. It is a tremendous achievement. He becomes the first among our song contributors to breach the four figure mark.

The 1000th song of Prakashchandra in the blog is from “Kaaran”(1981). This song is sung by Yesudas. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The song is picturised as a romantic background song on Shoma Anand and Raj Kiran.

I, on behalf of the blog take this opportunity to congratulate him and thank him for being with us in this musical journey. I am sure that we will see lots and lots of contributions from him in the future as well. It is a great feather in the cap of Prakashchandra as well as the blog. I am sure that we will continue to have many more such landmarks from our contributors in future as well.

Hullo atulites

I just realised that today (24 november 2016) is the birthday of another 70s/80s actor, producer director. Yes I am talking of the man who made the common man or the boy-next-door feel like a hero- Amol Palekar. I can’t believe he turns 73 today. it seems like yesterday that we saw him in Chitchor, Rajnigandha and Choti Si Baat. It seems like only recently that we saw him searching for a house with Zarina Wahaab and singing “Do deewane shahar main”, or desparately trying to convince his mom about Tina Munim being the right girl for him to get Married to (Baaton Baaton Mein). Then one fine day we saw him as a villian in Vinod Chpora’s ” Khamosh”. With his clean image one would have never guessed that he was the serial killer in that movie. In between all this we also saw him playing a husband to Parveen Babi (Rang Birangi) where he is tutored by Deven Verma about how to bring back the romance in his married life.

There are few south Indian singers who made a mark for themselves in the world of Hindi film Music. I think Yesudas is one of them who was followed by SPB etc. I am a child as far as knowledge regarding earlier singers is concerned. I am sure there might have been others before Yesudas or Dassettan as we Keralites love to call him {a matter of convenience for me to call myself a Keralite as far as this allegiance to this singer is concerned otherwise I am a proud Mumbaikar ;-)} .

====================
RaagaMalas in Hindi Films
====================

This is a unique RaagaMaalika composed and ably written by music director Ravindra Jain. I have no words to describe the greatness of Ravindra Jain in his excellence to create this truly very different type of composition. His selection of singer Yesudas for this very difficult heavy classical genre is also very very appropriate.
