“Jaan Pehchaan”(1950) was directed by Fali Mistry for United Technician, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, raj Kapoor, Jeewan, Shyama, Dulari, Amar, Mukri, Amir Bano, Sankatha etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie. As many as seven songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Jaan Pehchaan”(1950) to appear in the blog. This melancholic song is sung by Geeta Dutt and it is picturised on Nargis. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist.

Khemchand Prakash and Manna Dey are credited as the music directors of this movie but the distribution of songs between the two is not known. I have considered Khemchand Prakash as the music director of this song.

hullo to atuldom

I am trying to wish two people on their birthday with this one post.

Yesterday, 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar Singh of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

He was born in Hyderabad in 1922 which means he would have been 95. He started his career with a theatre group before shifting to Prithvi Theatre. That is where he learnt to play the Tabla, and several other instruments like the Sitar, Accordion and Piano. Besides his work at Prithvi he also started working as assistant to Husnlal Bhagatram and nurtured ambitionof becoming an independent music director.He met a struggling Jaikishan Panchal, a harmonium player, outside the office of a Gujarati film director and instantly offered him a job at Prithvi without even consulting Prithviraj Kapoor. But Prithviraj honoured Shankar’s word and appointed Jaikishan as the Harmonium player of Prithvi Theatre.

It was here that they got to know Raj Kapoor and when Raj Kapoor debuted as director in 1948 with “Aag”. Ram Ganguly was the music director and Shankar and Jaikishan were the assistants. For RK’s “Barsaat”. Raj Kapoor took Shankar as the music director who insisted that on taking Jaikishan as partner and history was made. Their filmography contains a wide range of music that made Bollywood history. It has music of all genres. And they continued as a team till the untimely death of Jaikishan in 1971. But even after 1971 all the music composed by Shankar was credited to the duo. But today’s song is from a 1975 film so definitely it has to be a Shankar creation.

The second person who is being wished with this song is my childhood favourite. She is another of the persons whose appearance on the small screen makes me stop in my tracks/ chores even today. I was floored by her beauty from the first time I set my eyes on her in 1971/72. And am amazed at how she has managed to maintain herself even today as turns 69 today- cannot believe she is 69!!! Does not look it at all!!! Probably it is her constant riyaaz of dance- she is a classical dancer- that is the secret behind her looks.

She has been the darling of the audiences from her first Bollywood debut opposite Raj Kapoor in 1968. (she first faced the camera at 15 for Tamil film “Ithu Sathiyam” as a dancer and supporting actress). Now I know all the followers of this blog have understood that I am talking of my Basanti alias Hema Malini. And just so that this post doesn’t become very long I am not going to list all of my favourite Hema Malini films here. Neither am I going to list all her co-stars here. Nor am I giving a list of her songs which have been playing inside my head since morning. 😉

Let us get to the song straight away. It is from Sohanlal Kanwar’s “Sanyasi” (1975). The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Vithalbhai Patel.

A strange coincidence the two people whose birthday is being celebrated with this song -both had their Bollywood debut with Raj Kapoor.


Song-Baali umariya bhajan karoon kaise (Sanyaasi)(1975) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Vitthal Bhai Patel, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

“Bhakt Prahlad”(1946) was directed by Dhirubhai Desai for Vishnu Cinetone, Bombay. The movie had Anant Marathe, Leela Chitnis, Ulhas, Tiwari, Dikshit and Rajkumari Shukla etc. in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it that were composed by two music directors viz. Pt. Hanuman Prasad and K.C.Verma. The songs were penned by five lyricists, viz. Bekal, Pt.Veer, Ram murthy, Deepak and B P Bajpai.

The songs of the movie, like the movie itself are quite rare.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Bhakt Prahlad”(1946) to appear in the blog. This obscure song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Despite there being so many lyricists in the movie, the lyricist of this song (or of other songs for that matter) is not known. Music is composed by Hanaman Prasad.

Only the audio of this song is available. Even the audio is not of very great quality, but then someting is better than nothing.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Kyun door huaa mujhse (Bhakt Prahlad)(1946) Singer-Shamshad Begam, MD-Hanuman Prasad

Lyrics

Kyun door huaa mujhse
meri aankhon ka taara
kyun chheen liya mujhse mera ek sahaara
ab kaun kahe maa mujhe
main kis’se kahoon laal

kyun mujhko na aaya tere pehli hi mera kaal
gar tu na hua phoot gaya bhaag hamaara
kyun chheen liya mujhse mera ek sahaara

godi mein liye apni kise
ab main khilaaun
gaa gaa ke haay loriyaan
main kisko sunaaun
jab tu hi nahin hai to kahaan chain hamaara
kyun cheen liya mujhse mera ek sahaara

gar roothh gaya hai to tujhe chaand manaaoon
aa dauk ke aa
apne kaleje se lagaaun
kya bhool gaya khelna wo pyaar hamaara
kyun chheen liya mujhse mera ek sahaara

“Kaneez”(1949) was directed by Krishn Kumar for Caravan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shyam, Munawwar Sultana, Urmila, Kuldeep Kaur, Cuckoo, Tiwari, Ramesh Sinha, Shyama etc in it.

There were twelve songs in the movie. Eight of these songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Kaneez”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Shatir Ghaznavi is the lyricist.

The song is picturised on Munawwar Sultana who plays the lead role of a rich heiress who is forced to live as a servant (Kaneez) in her own household becuase of the machinations of the villains, before justice is done and she is restored to her usual position.

The movie had Ghulam Haider and Hansraj Bahl as the two music directors. The music director of this song is not known. I have assumed that Ghulam Haider is the music director of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us who is the music director of this song.

I have not been able to get a word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help decipher that word.


Song-Tu ameeron ka khuda hai to gareebon ka khuda kaun (Kaneez)(1949) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-Shatir Ghaznavi, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

tu ameeron ka khuda hai

Today’s song is from the film Jagirdar-1937. The film was made by Sagar Movietone.

In the first decade after the Talkie Era started, Sagar Movietone was one of the major film making companies in Bombay. The Desai family, along with Dr. Ambalal Patel, were originally in Film Distribution business, but decided to enter the actual film production. Sagar Film Company, which had produced 12 silent films, was converted to Sagar Movietone in 1931, after Desai and Patel joined it.

The personal involvement, unstinted finance availability and the growing demand for quality Talkie films and Music helped Sagar to soon become a great place to work with. On their part the Desai family got almost every eligible member of their family to share the responsibility to run this successful company. With their clean reputation and a professional approach with a personal touch to treat its employees, Sagar Movietone attracted the best available talent in the industry.

Sagar had the Top class Heroes and actors with them, like Surendra ( who was initially projected as an answer to K L Saigal of Calcutta), Motilal, Kumar, Shaikh mukhtar, N M Charlie, Yaqub, Bhudo Advani, Kanhaiyalal, V H Desai etc, heroines like, Sabita Devi, Nalini Jaywant, Jyoti, Waheedan bai, Bibbo and Maya Banerjee, Directors like Mehboob, Ezra Mir, Sarvottam Badami ( he was an ordinary Motor mechanic in Bangalore. He also directed Tamil and Telugu films for Sagar later), Ramchandra Thakur and Zia Sarhadi, Cinematographer Faredoon Irani, Sound recordist Kaushik Dholakia and above all Music Director Anil Biswas. All these star artistes grew initially in Sagar. They were the “Jewels of Sagar “.

While doing shootings, the atmosphere on the sets used to be very informal. For film kulwadhu-37, the Heroine Sabita Devi had to wear a Gujarati style Saree, which she did not know how to. She directly went to the owner’s house and learnt it from his wife Nanda Gauri.

Sagar had invented a novel method of promoting films. After film Kulwadhu-37 was released, a contest for readers of the Film India magazine was arranged, asking few questions about the impact of the film on the society. There was a good response from viewers/readers, one of whom also won a cash prize of Rs. 250 ( a princely sum in those days).

Based on this experience, even for film Jagirdar-37, a feedback contest from the audience was thrown open via Film India magazine , announcing total prizes worth about a Thousand rupees or so. Additionally, a half page advertisement in Times Of India was given. Only one sentence was printed in the centre of the advertisement keeping the rest area vacant. The sentence written by Baburao Patel was ” The most kissable Mischief of the year- Maya Banerjee in film Jagirdar, Directed by Mehboob Khan “. This gimmick generated enormous curiosity among the public and increased the multiple visits of the audience to the film.

Film Jagirdar was a tremendous success commercially. The cast included Surendra and Motilal, along with Bibbo and Maya Banerjee. The credit of Multiple Hero Films goes to Sagar. Not only this film, but later on in 1939, they cast 3 Heroes and 3 Heroines in film ” Ek Hi Rasta ‘- 39. In film Jagirdar Surendra and Motilal- though contemporaries- played the roles of Father and Son !

There was an interesting anecdote about Jagirdar shooting. In one scene, Motilal is shown becoming sentimental while remembering his mother. By chance, same morning Motilal had received a telegram informing him that his mother was very ill. While doing this scene Motilal just broke down and wept. Mehboob Khan stopped the shooting. It resumed after Motilal was pacified by all others.

Sagar movietone produced a total of 66 Talkie films from 1931 to 1940. The break up is 52- Hindi, 5- Tamil, 4 – Gujarati, 3 – Telugu, 1-Bengali and 1- Punjabi. Surprisingly, Sagar did not make any Marathi film or a Bilingual film to compete with Prabhat films !

The film was directed by Mehboob Khan with music by Anil Biswas. During their tenure in Sagar both, Mehboob and Anil Biswas became thick friends, but this friendship broke in 1940 when Anil Biswas accepted an offer from Bombay Talkies and left alone. Mehboob Khan felt let down since Anil Biswas had not even informed him before leaving. Due to this they never worked together again in their life.

( article uses information from the book “Sagar movietone” by shri Biren Kothari ji and Ency. of Indian Cinema by Ashish and Paul, with thanks )

The story of film Jagirdar-37….

Surendra is a Jagirdar. he loves Neela (Bibbo). They secretly marry and get a child also. In one sea voyage ship wreck, Surendra is believed to have died. Now the child is called illegitimate. Neela is about to commit suicide, but a poor farmer Shripati (Pandey) saves her and also marries her. The child grows as Ramesh (Motilal). he is in love with Sheela(Maya Banerjee).

Surendra survives and comes back. He has a big fight with Shripati over Neela. Ramesh opposes Surendra. Few days later Shripati is murdered and Surendra is suspected for this. When the gangster Narayanlal(Yaqub) comes in the picture, the father and son fight him together and the killer of Shripati is arrested.

All is well that ends well.

Film Jagirdar has 10 songs. 2 songs, including the most popular song of the film-” Nadi kinare, baith ke aao” (Motilal and Maya Banerjee) are already discussed by Atul ji. Today’s song will be the third song. The Mukhda is “baanke Bihaari bhool na jaana “. Many people may not know the meaning of the word Banke Bihari. It has no connection with Bihar. It is one of the names of Lord Shri Krishna. Banke means bent. The statue of Krishna is usually bent at 3 places-Hands folded for Flute, waist folded and leg folded while standing. Bihari means Supreme Enjoyer. In this song, the girl is calling her lover- Krishna, in short. Enjoy the song now…..

hullo to all in Atuldom

Today 13th of October is a rather sad date for fans of Bollywood music. It was on this date in 1987 that we lost a gem of the industry to “KAAL”. Its 30 years already and we are yet to find an entertainer like him. We still don’t have a singer, actor (brilliant in comedy), composer, song-writer, and finally a producer-director like him. Our own Kishore Kumar.

Born in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh, to Kunjalal Ganguly and Gauri Devi as brother to Ashok Kumar, Anoop Kumar and Sati Devi he was a fan of K.L.Saigal. On completing graduation Abhas Kumar (birthname)started his cinema career as chorus singer in Bombay Talkies where his brother Ashok Kumar worked. His first screen appearance was in Shikari (1946) in which his brother was the lead. So that started his acting career and with “Marne ki duayen kyun maangu” under the music baton of Khemchand Prakash in “Ziddi” (1948) his singing career took off. But why am I listing all that hear, these are all well known facts. So, I will just say MISSING YOU KISHOREDA.

13th October also happens to be the death anniversary of the eternal mother Nirupa Roy. My first memory of her is as mother to Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor in “Deewar” as a person who single-handedly brings up her two kids once her husband deserts the family. Next, I think her character in “Amar Akbar Anthony” stands out. But I know I have seen her as mother to Vinod Khanna (Aan Milo Sajna), Dharmendra (infinite times), Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna- do I need to list all her filmy children here? But just because I have seen her in motherly roles doesn’t mean she started off as a mother; she has also played a leading lady in the late 40s through the 50s to the 60s. she has played a goddess in many mythologicals and has had Trilok Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Balraj Sahni, and Bharat Bhushan as her leading men.

Professor Pyarelal (1981) is a film directed by Brij, starring Dharmendra, Vinod Mehra, Nirupa Roy, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Amjad Khan, Zeenat Aman & Simi. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and Rajinder Krishan was the lyricist.

With this song, which runs through the movie, in four parts, we remember both Kishore Kumar and Nirupa Roy.

Hullo to Atuldom

‘Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki’ is a movie released in 1980. It was directed by Hiren Nag and produced by Ramraj Nahata. It had a star cast of Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Raj Kiran, Rameshwari, Kaajal Kiran, Shashikala, Dina Pathak, Madan Puri etc. Songs were written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have never seen the movie and so I have no idea what it was all about.

But one song from that movie has stayed in my memory. The playback for that song is by Manna Dey with Dilraj Kaur. What has stuck with me since I saw it on Doordarshan’s Chaayageet/Chitrahaar is the sight of Ashok Kumar and Shashikala living it up at a disco.

That was the period when Ashok Kumar used play a lovable old man who doesn’t mind enjoying himself occasionally with wine, women etc. All these would many-a-times be just to irritate a younger character or bring a wayward youngster to toe his line. But all his roles were very cute. Very often his partner would be the other lovable old man Pran, in addition he used to team up with Utpal Dutt, AK Hangal, and sometimes his team mate would be any actress with whom he has paired romantically in his younger days. Like in today’s song he is merrily dancing with Shashikala who herself was a dancing star in her younger days. Before this the two had appeared in ‘Khubsoorat’ as Sasur and Bahu. And yes, that film also is from 1980. 🙂 In this film, we see  Shashikala do a kathak piece as Dada Moni plays the tabla. I also remember Shashikala with Ashok Kumar in BR Chopra’s ‘Gumraah’ (1963) too.

I am sure many of the regular followers of this blog will remember that today is Dada Moni’s birth anniversary. He would have been 106. Let us remember him with this lively party song.

Today(13 october 2017) is the 30th death anniversary of one of the greatest legends of the Hindi film industry, Kishore Kumar. On this day, the 13th of October 1987, he left this earthly world. He was just 58 then.

As with all legends, though they may be long gone, we are left with their legacy – to enjoy and to remember them with. Kishore Kumar is no different – his legacy is extremely rich, and he has millions of fans around the world who enjoy his songs every single day.

Here, on this blog, we remember him very fondly today on this death anniversary and thank him for enriching our lives to an extent and in a manner that’s hard to quantify or describe. Each of us just knows it in our heart.

So what can I write about Kishore Kumar that I haven’t already written here?

I’ve already written a lot about him on various posts – on his birth and death anniversaries.

Much of my previous writing here on Kishore Kumar relates to my own experience as a schoolboy in the 1970s, when he reigned supreme.

I’ve also written about how fond I am of his pre-1970s songs, although he was not THE numero uno male playback singer of the time. His songs from this period though are an absolute delight to listen to.

I’ve also written about the harfan maula that Kishore Kumar was. His best-known talent is, no doubt, his singing. But he was a popular comedy actor too in his time, with his own style of comedy. He also dabbled (successfully) in composing music. And, as if all of this were not enough, he directed and produced some films too. So yes, full marks for being a harfan maula .

Having discussed all this before, I do not wish to repeat myself, and bore the reader. 🙂

I would therefore like to dwell today on something else – Kishore Kumar, the person.

Obviously I’ve never met him myself, so anything I say about Kishore Kumar, the person, is necessarily gleaned from reports about him, or interviews with, or about, him.

By all accounts – and by that, I mean mainly his fellow artistes – Kishore Kumar was a fun person. Both Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle have spoken very fondly of him as being a prankster (in the nicest sense of the term), always up for some fun, cracking a joke, pulling someone’s leg, having a good laugh in general.

This is a quality I admire, because, as long as it does not interfere with work, it’s always fun to have fun-colleagues. Imagine being at work with sullen faces around you. 🙂 Life is too short to live without fun & sparkle in it – and I think Kishore Kumar understood this better than most. So not only did he practise it himself, he also spread this fun and sparkle wherever he went.

One has only to watch his live performance videos (some are thankfully available online) to see how full of energy and fun Kishore Kumar was. He was not just “singing”, he was fully “performing” for his audience. Clearly they were there to have a good time – and he was going to make sure he gave them what they wanted.

Another aspect of Kishore Kumar’s personality that I have read about is that he was particular about his fee. He didn’t want to be taken for a ride by anyone – and that’s only fair and professional. I’ve also read this about Jagjit Singh.

Contrary to what some might have made about the professional rivalry of Kishore Kumar and Rafisaab, they were good friends and had a lot of respect for each other. Amit Kumar talks about the time early in his career when his car once broke down. Rafisaab gave him a lift, dropped him off home, and went on. When Kishore Kumar got to know of this, he was upset with Amit Kumar for letting Rafisaab go, without bringing him home. Rafisaab too admired Kishore, acknowledging his popularity in the 1970s and encouraging him to give live performances. Professional rivalry apni jagah, but it does not have to come in the way of personal relationships.

Then there was the time in the late 70s (I think), when Kishore Kumar was reigning. Someone (I don’t know who) started a poll “Who’s the better singer – Kishore Kumar or Mohammad Rafi”. Given Kishore’s popularity at the time, presumably he was getting favourable winds in his direction. He was deeply embarrassed and requested that the poll be stopped.

Kishore Kumar seems to have managed to largely live life on his own terms. He had a few run-ins – when he refused to sing on Sanjay Gandhi’s orders at a Congress rally, his songs were banned for a while from being played on air during the Emergency. Apparently he had a misunderstanding later in his career with Amitabh Bachchan too, when the latter refused to do a guest role in a film produced by Kishore.

So it’s not as Kishore’s career was entirely controversy-free – but then, most celebrities’ careers rarely are. What’s more important is how their character stacks up during the controversy – and Kishore’s stacks up pretty well, in my opinion.

There’s a now-famous mid-80s interview of Kishore Kumar by Pritish Nandy. I think it was in the Illustrated Weekly of India. By then, Kishore had become reclusive – the interview gives an insight into his then-thought process. He had become fond of talking to plants – he explains why.

I remember being surprised to see the depth in Kishore Kumar’s “Door Ka Raahi” (1971) – a film produced and directed by him, and very different from the usual escapist fare of the time. For a person best-known for his comedy roles and fun character, this film revealed a different, thinking, side to Kishore’s personality.

All in all, Kishore Kumar was one of a kind. There’s a lot to admire about him – and I’m not talking just about his singing. We could certainly do with more Kishore Kumars today – but then they don’t make them like Kishore anymore, do they?

So today, as we pay tribute to Kishore Kumar, we thank him for being the person he was. And of course for all the wonderful songs he has given us. It just struck me – I haven’t mentioned even one. Bahut na-insaafi hai. 🙂

Anyway, coming to the song for today.

This is from Harjaee (1981).

I remember seeing this film at that time – haven’t seen it since. Contrary to the typical multi-starrer, masala films of the time, this film, starring Randhir Kapoor and Tina Munim, was a proper tear-jerker. From what I remember, Randhir Kapoor is a carefree, prankster type of guy who pretends to have cancer, just to get Tina Munim to fall for him. His parents too believes his story and get Tina to be sympathetic towards him. Then tragedy strikes. Randhir Kapoor gets really diagnosed with cancer. The rest of the story is how he copes with it, how Tina copes with it, how their respective families cope with it.

The film has some good songs – like many Randhir Kapoor films do. Whether his films did well or not, there used to invariably be at least one hit song (often more) in each of his films. I remember during my schooldays, I personally didn’t mind Randhir Kapoor films at all – though I was clearly much in the minority at the time. 🙂

The song is “kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain”. It is a sad, sensitive song picturised on Randhir as he reflects on his changed life, and wants to hold on to all that is precious to him.

I hope you like the song.


Song-Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain (Harjaayee)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Nida Fazli, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain

Jo aata hai wo jaata hai
Ye duniya aani jaani hai
Yahaan har shay musaafir hai
Safar mein zindagaani hai
Ujaalon ki zaroorat hai
Andhera meri kismat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

Zara ae zindagi dum le
Tera deedaar to kar loon
Kabhi dekha nahin jisko
Usey main pyaar to kar loon
Abhi se chhod ke mat jaa
Abhi teri zaroorat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

Koi anjaan sa chehra
Ubharta hai fizaaon mein
Ye kiski aahatein jaagin
Meri khaamosh raahon mein
Abhi ae maut mat aana
Mera bhi aana jannat hai
Kabhi palkon pe aansoo hain
Kabhi lab pe shikaayat hai
Magar ae zindagi phir bhi
Mujhe tujh se mohabbat hai

The uncertainties of life, in some way, always gives us happy as well as sad moments and surprises as well. The journey of life keeps on going on and on still, like that only. . . We never know how things are going to happen around us and what ‘life’ has there in store for us with every new day coming.

***

When it was decided that I will have to go abroad for a job opportunity there, I was at Nagpur and my daughters were staying at Anand Gujarat for their studies. So, it was obvious that my wife will also shift to Anand with my daughters. Most of our relatives, from my side and my wife’s side were already in Nagpur, except that my mother is staying at Parli Vaijnath (Marathwada-Maharashtra) with one of my younger brother. And my youngest brother (we are three) is staying at Mundra Kachchh-Gujarat.

So, it was natural for me to try to meet all of them before I take up my journey abroad. Before leaving Nagpur I and my wife travelled to Parli Vaijnath to seek blessings of my Mother and Mother Goddess Tulja Bhawani at Tuljapur. After coming back, we meet my paternal relatives and my wife’s paternal relatives. Then we took journey from Nagpur to Anand, again by car (this time with a driver) en route to Akola – my birthplace – and our ancestral house there, where one of my Uncle and my Buaa ji were staying.

I thought it was all happening as ordained by God that I visit Akola and stay there one night before taking on this new journey in my life. That way I thought I will have blessings of my Grand Father and Grand Mother who had already left many years before for their heavenly abode. Well, I met my cousins and Buaa ji at Akola, as my Uncle there had already left for Nagpur for some urgent work.

***

Everything went well and I too settled down in Kenya for my job and soon after almost four and half months passed on peacefully it was time for me to visit home on account my first leave to attend the Ganpati Festival at home. While everything was planned in advance and it was also finalised that this time me and my family can only visit Mundra-Kachchh (our home, presently occupied by tenants) and finish the bank related works – change in address there etc. and after that may be a single day visit to Vadodara to meet few of known friends and well-wishers and if possible a visit to one of the ashram near Rajpipla where we have been visiting since 2007.

Of course, there was a lot ‘shopping’ also to be done for me, as well as for my fellow Indian friends staying with me in Nairobi. But then there is one more factor and that is the uncertainties of life. We never know what is going to happen next.

There was an unfortunate development between these days before my travel. My Uncle staying at Nagpur had to be admitted to Hospital initially for a seemingly mild heart attack which he survived and an operation was suggested to remove some blockages in veins. However, on detailed examination it was diagnosed that he will not be able to face the operation as his heart was ‘weak’ not in good health to cope up with the operation that was required.

He was in hospital for almost twenty days and he recovered too, but when he was about to be discharged he got another attack. And then slowly one by one his organs started failing. With only the heart working, now it was almost left to God. As days passed and the Ganpati festival was approaching all family members and relatives where worrying about that if we will be able to bring the God Ganpati to our home or not?

***

I reached Anand on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi on 25th August. It was already noon by then and immediately after reaching home we started the preparations for ‘Ganpati Sthapna’. My daughters were already in town to bring the Ganpati idol to our home. It was their turn this time to decide and bring the idol to home. The first day of Ganpati festival passed well, still all family members and relatives worrying about the deteriorating health condition of my Uncle admitted in the hospital.

Having settled at home after a gap of almost five months and have taken a rest after being in travel for almost nineteen hours, the next day was still in an anxiety mood for me. I was eager to take on the planned activities soon. As we finished the evening ‘aarti’ on the second day and I was just savouring the Prasad after performing prayers, the looming fear stroked and the news came of my Uncle passing away at Nagpur.

 

***

Why I am writing this post here is that other than being my Uncle and always friendly with me, he was a crazy music lover. While I do remember watching some movies with him (and I have mentioned that in one of my posts on the blog), there are some vague memories too of my childhood where I used to visit my grandparents in the summer vacations and where I can meet my uncles and watch movies. I also remember attending his marriage when I was in high school. As I grew up, there were always occasions of a family get together where we meet. Then he also got transferred to the same place my parents shifted i.e. Parli Vaijnath. When I got married in 1994 he was there actively taking part in all ceremonies.

Whenever I visited him music was an integral part of discussions and I used to check which new albums he has got in his collection. After I started working and started my own collection the discussions thereafter were mainly on which rare song/album he got in his collection and which one I was missing? He was a great fan of Rajendra Kumar (like my other uncles and aunts and my grandmother) but he was also a fan of Jeetendra. He liked Jeetendra’s musical hits very much. After his retirement he was really enjoying very much downloading songs from ‘Youtube’ and other sources.

When I told him about our blog and my contributions he was visiting the blog regularly, though he may not have commented on any posts. He had settled in Nagpur after retirement and when I shifted to Nagpur in 2015 I stayed with him before shifting my household from Guajrat. I and my wife used to visit regularly in between during our stay at Nagpur. The last time I meet him was in the morning of 9th March this year to seek his blessings.

***

Members on the ‘Atulites’ WhatsApp group may recall message of my travelling to Nagpur with my younger brother during my recent visit to India. The visit was for this purpose of meeting my aunt and cousins after the passing away of my Uncle. It was this train journey, filled with nostalgia and yet memories of the departed soul and thoughts of uncertainties of life. We could not attend his final rites given the time required to travel.

***

At Nagpur I got to know how tough it was for my uncle to be in the bed for so many days. It was not his nature. At home he was always doing some productive activity and busy in doing something or the other. When he had to spend those days in the ‘hospital’ he was always insisting to take him to home from the hospital and remove all those medical apparatuses that were attached to him for supporting his ill health. He would have never imagined this day in his life.

In the ICU he was restricted from doing many things as the discipline have to be maintained there. But how long you can keep one holding like that. One day he was found listening to songs and that too in a good volume which was enough to make the hospital staff rush to him and take away the mobile from him, to save the other patients from this musical entertainment.

Well that is one part. But, on the other part, as I was told later, it was very difficult for him to bear the pain and the difficulties in breathing. Each new day was coming to him with more pain and problems. So actually, he was requesting everybody to let him go home and rest peacefully. The problem of choked veins had not aggravated suddenly, but his came on over a period of time on account of continuous smoking (which he was advised to stop two years earlier).

***

We as a human being always enjoy, celebrate, and share happy moments with others. But nobody can share this ‘pain and sufferings’ of one who is going through it. He must have been going through this thought I guess.

Ro’oge tum to na royegi duniya
Na royegi duniya
Tere aansuon ko samajh na sakegi
Tere aansuon pe hansegi ye duniya

In today’s fast paced world, given the hard facts of life one really doesn’t gets time to stop moving. The ‘show’ needs to go on and one needs to be moving on. . . always. Even we the relatives, no doubt, some of us were there with him for all these days in his bedside in the hospital, but some of us like me were not there and could not even attend his final rites. And have to continue with our daily routine and even doing things that one should avoid doing in this period of grief.

Jagmagaate raho
Gungunaate raho
Zindagi mein sada
Muskuraate raho

Paying my tributes to him I present this song from the 1971 film ‘Kathputli’. This film was directed by Brij for the banner of ‘Dynamo International, Bombay’. The star cast includes Jeetendra, Mumtaz, Helen, Agha, Manmohan, Malika, Bhagwan, Asha Chandra, Leela Mishra, Pravin Pal, Kundan, Radheshyam, Dilip Dutt, Kumud Tripathi, Bhola, Rajrani, Ramlal, Fazlu, Naidu, Jerry, Bishan, Brij, Jalal Agha and Master Chiku. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.08.1971.

This movie has total eight songs, including one two version song. The songs are penned by Verma Malik (four songs), Indeevar (three songs), and Shadab (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi give their voices to the songs in this movie. One duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi – “Ek Baat Poochhoon” has been posted earlier on the blog (long back in 2012 😊).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Verma Malik. As mentioned above music for this song is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. I am not aware in what context this song is in the movie and I have not watched the movie too. However, this song is in my memory since I heard it on a cassette which HMV had brought as ‘A Tribute to the Legend – Kishore Kumar’ (if I am correct). This is a four-cassette set.

Whatever be the context of this song in the movie, the name of the movie does remind me of this dialogue from the movie ‘Anand’ (1970) – “. . . ham sab to rang manch ki kathputliyaan hai, jinki dor uparwaale ke haath mein bandhi huyi hai, kaun kab kaise utthega, ye koi nahin bataa sakta. . .  ha ha ha’

🙂

Enjoy the song now!!!
