5th June is celebrated as ‘World Environment Day’ all over the world every year. The theme for this year is “Connecting People to Nature“.

I am approaching today’s post in a different manner. Instead of going into the details of the environmental agencies, their history and purpose, the significant environmental issues being faced by humanity on this planet, etc. I am thinking of our Hindi films and their music. The nature is so intimately connected herein. We cannot imagine our Hindi Film Music without ‘connecting with nature’.

Today’s song is from from an almost forgotten film of the Golden period- Jeevan Sathi-57. This particular song is a very melodious one which had been quite popular in those days. I was surprised how this song was not yet posted here so long. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt, written by Indeevar, it is composed by by a talented but a moderately successful composer- Bulo C. Rani.

The movie title “Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was clearly inspired from the iconic song of “Nastik”(1954) with this mukhda.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Modern Theatre, Bombay. The movie had Ajit, Nalini Jaywant, I S Johar, Kamaljeet, Uday Laxmi, Shanti, Harbans Lal, Saroja, Anil Dutta etc in it. Inbcidentally, I S Johar was the director of “Nastik”(1954) as well. Ajit, Nalini Jaywant and I S Johar were there is “Nastik” (1954) as well. So it appears that this movie was inspired by “Nastik” (1954) in more ways than one.

This article is written by our dear Atul ji. You must be wondering, why this change in presentation style today. Well, this post is a very, very, very special occasion, or rather a momentous occasion, for our blog and for Atul ji. It is appropriate that this introduction and announcement be made on his behalf. 

THIS  IS  ATUL  JI’s  10,000th  POST  ON  THIS  BLOG.

This is a milestone, in comparison to which all our earlier milestones and celebrations pale in significance. A single-handed dedicated effort relentlessly in progress for the past almost nine years. I am sure it will take some time for all of us, for the significance and eminence of this event to sink in.
More special posts by the members of our bandwagon are in planning, starting tomorrow. So please keep connected and be a witness to this remarkable celebration.

As regulars are aware, I am based at Izatnagar, Bareilly at present which happens to be located between Delhi and Lucknow. In fact, this place is equidistant from both these cities. This fact had been commented upon by several regulars. Our Lucknow based regular namely Mr Avadh Lal even commented that I needed to visit Lucknow and meet the Lucknow based music lovers.

Another request from Arvinder ji.  And another delightful song that I must thank him for introducing to me. I heard this song for the first time after Arvinder ji’s persistent requests finally made me pull this song out and listen to it. It was love at first hear 😉 (ah, the phrase being used again today). And yes, another theme being used again today is the ‘keep your hearts safe’ message. In an earlier post today, Atul ji has uploaded the Shamshad Begum song – “Meri Nazren Pockekmaar Sambhaalo Dil Ke Pocket Ko”. And in this song, the lady is announcing that

आई हूँ रंग ले के मैं बहार के
रखना काबू
दिल रखना काबू
