Blog Day : 3757 Post No. : 14725

Today (31 october 2018) is the 43rd remembrance day of S D Burman (1 october 1906- 31 october 1975).

As a tribute, we already had a long and interesting article on S D Burman by our inhouse HFM historian cum researcher Mr Sadanand Kamath.

SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation too spent almost the whole broadcast duration today by playing 27 S D Burman compositions today out of 28- the last being a K L Saigal song, of course. 27 S D Burman composition out of 670 odd HFM songs that S D Burman composed in his career work out to about 4 % of all S D Burman HFM songs.

My way of paying tributes to HFM artists is to present detaile filmography of those artists. It is no different today. Here in this aricle I will provide full filmography of S D Burman as far as Hindi movies are concerned.

S D Burman composed musuc in 89 released movies and one unreleased movie, as far as I can tell. As many as 74 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog. Overall, S D Burman composed some 670 songs in these movies. This blog has 626 of these songs. The blog also has 5 non film songs composed by S D Burman.

So in summary, only around 45 SD Burman HFM songs from 15 movies are left to be covered. All of these songs may not be available. My guess is that another 30 odd songs out of these 45 may be available and then S D Burman willjoin artists like K L Saigal and Suraiyya whose available songs are fully represented in the blog.

Here are the details of S D Burman songs from his hindi movies :-

As a tribute to S D Burman,I have chosen a song from “Naughty Boy”(1962).

“Naughty Boy”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Omprakash, Sundar, Madan Puri, Kanu Roy, Krishnkant, Kundan, Praveen Paul, Shivraj, Sulochana Cahtterji, Prretibala, Nand Kishore, Masud, Paachhi, Manjula, Samar Chatterji, Kamaldeep, etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised on Kishore Kumar and others. One can see, among others, Edvina in the picturisation of this song. I am not familiar with others visible. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors in the picturisation.


Song-Nazren milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare (Naughty Boy)(1962) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

nazre milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 27
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

’ – महफिल में तेरे हुस्न का दीवाना कौन है ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

हम इंतज़ार करेंगे ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Knowing it is futile – no one returns from where you have gone. But still, the heart knows no other emotion. And so we will wait, till whenever we can.

– – – –

This duet song from the 1962 film ‘Rooplekha’ is a real treat. It is vintage Rafi, sung with that signature ‘खुमारी’ and ‘मस्ती’, the inimitable flavors of sounds that only Rafi Sb could render. When I came across this song while searching for a duet of Rafi Sb starting with ‘म’, I was quite excited. The emotion that ran through my mind was the oft represented thought – how come this song is not yet on the blog. Quite a popular favorite from the radio listening days, it is a wonder that this gem has kept away from our blog. And not that this film is new here – already two songs of this film are showcased here. Both solos, one is a wonderful treat from Suman Kalyanpur – “Tu Ne Chura Li Mere Maathe Ki Bindiya” and a bhajan in the voice of Rafi Sb – “Bahjan Bina Baawre”.

Checking out the Geet Kosh, we find that three films with this same title have been released – in 1934, 1939 and 1962. This 1962 film is produced under the banner of Prithvi Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Mohammed Hussain. The six songs in this film are all written by Farooque Kaiser. And the wonderful compositions are from the mind of Nashaad. Regulars will recall that Nashaad is the pseudonym for Shaukat Ali, aka Shaukat Hussain Dehlavi. His first break in Hindi films as a music director was with the film ‘Naghma’ of 1953. And this break came about in very interesting circumstances. Nakshab Jarchvi, the producer director of this film was trying to engage Naushad Sb as the music director for his film. Certain circumstances prevailed and Naushad Sb declined the offer. Somewhat piqued by this response, Nakshab Sb brought in Shaukat Ali, who was working as assistant music director till then, and gave him charge of the music department for his film. And he also suggested to use the pseudonym ‘Nashaad’, in a likely riposte to Naushad Sb’s refusal.

Coming to the star cast of this film, the Geet Kosh lists the following actors Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhary, Sundar, Raj Adeeb, Shaam Kumar, Krishna Kumari, Amar, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Mohammad Ali, Ghani, Arvind Kumar, Dhondu, Balram, Nazeer Kashmiri, Shri Bhagwan, Pandey Ji, Ravikant, Shamu, Kathana, and Sujata.

On screen, this song is presented as a mujra dance song – a peculiar one – in that the ‘saazinda’ (musician) accompanying the dancer is leading the singing. We see Mahipal playing the sitar and Vijaya Chaudhry doing the dance sequence. There are two other characters in this scenario. One lady, who I guess is Krishna Kumari, and a gentleman I am not able to place a name to the face. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm / correct / add the names for these two artists.

The duet is an exchange of queries and responses between the two artists. Very interesting words, and a very dear composition. The renditions, of course, Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur – one of their best duets in my opinion. Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day : 3695 Post No. : 14612

Month of August is full of so many National memories. Whenever we celebrate 9th August or 15th August, there will be invariably references of martyrs who dedicate their lives for the nation. We fought one war with China and four with Pakistan, and our loss of ‘shaheeds‘ was substantial.

Jaidev ji composed these Pt Narendra Sharma’s expressive lyrics in the voice of Lata ji. He recorded the same song with the voice of Asha ji and even that is equally popular.

(After the China war Lata and Asha had practised with a song of Pradeep ji, composed by C Ramchandra. But when Lata ji sang it ALONE on 26th January function at New Delhi, it became a much discussed controversy, as everybody will recall.)

The lyrics are so impressive and expressive, that there is no need for longer explanation. I am sure that the listeners of the song will become totally emotional.


Song: Jo Samar Mein Ho Gaye Amar (Patriotic NFS)(1962) Singers: Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics: Pt Narendra Sharma, Music: Jaidev

Lyrics

jo samar mein ho gaye amar
main un ki yaad mein
gaa rahii huun aaj shradhdhaa-geet
dhanyavaad mein
jo samar mein ho gaye amar
main un ki yaad mein
gaa rahii huun aaj shradhdhaa-geet
dhanyavaad mein
jo samar mein ho gaye amar
 
laut kar na aayenge
vijay dilaane waale veer
mere geet anjali mein
un ke liye nayan-neer
laut kar na aayenge
vijay dilaane waale veer
mere geet anjali mein
un ke liye nayan-neer
sang phool-paan ke
rang hai nishaan ke
shoorveer aan ke
jo samar mein ho gaye amar
main un ki yaad mein
gaa rahii huun aaj shradhdhaa-geet
dhanyavaad mein
jo samar mein ho gaye amar

vijay ke phool khil rahe hain
phool adh-khile jhare
unke khoon se hamaare
khet baag ban harey
vijay ke phool khil rahe hain
phool adh-khile jhare
unke khoon se hamaare
khet baag ban harey
dhruva hain kraanti-gaan ke
surya nava-vihaan ke
shoorveer aan ke
jo samar mein ho gaye amar
main un ki yaad mein
gaa rahii huun aaj shradhdhaa-geet
dhanyavaad mein
jo samar mein ho gaye amar
 
wo gaye ke reh sakey
swatantrata swadesh ki
vishwa bhar mein maanyataa ho
mukti ke sandesh ki
wo gaye ke reh sakey
swatantrata swadesh ki
vishwa bhar mein maanyataa ho
mukti ke sandesh ki
praan desh-praan ke
moorti swaabhimaan ke
shoorveer aan ke
jo samar mein ho gaye amar

Blog Day : 3680 Post No. : 14574

The 15th of August, is a special date in the calendar for India.

Every year, there are events across the country celebrating the day. There is flag-hoisting in schools, offices and public places. There are patriotic songs played on radio. There’s a lot more to mark the date and occasion.

All of this is understandable. After all, it was on the 15th of August that many years ago, India became an independent nation, free from British rule.

Today is the 72nd Independence Day for India. I still remember the Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1972 – I was part of my school March Past event. How time flies!

But there is more to this date than just celebration. It is an occasion that at least some of us use to reflect. On India’s journey as an independent nation so far. We take stock of where we are, and where we’d like to see us go from here.

I am sure there must be many articles written on this subject in various media publications this week. On our part, our Avinashji has sent me the lyrics for today’s song and requested me to share my thoughts on this occasion. I am therefore taking the liberty of doing so.

Whenever I think of 15th August, the first thing that comes to my mind is our Freedom Struggle and our Founding Fathers. Today we take our freedom for granted – it is hard to even imagine that we were once a colony of the British Empire.

But if it were not for the struggles and sacrifices of millions of Indians, from every corner of the country, would we have got independence when we did? We are familiar with some of the more prominent names who were part of this struggle. But there were so many more who made sacrifices, who gave up their lives for the cause – and died unsung.

I always think of them on 15th August.

Then the Founding Fathers themselves. Once India became an independent country, Britain left it to fend for itself. Can you imagine the challenges a new-born India would have faced at that time?

India was then a country reeling from the horrors of partition. Although there had been talk of partition for a while, the actual execution of the whole process was done very hastily, without enough attention to detail. Political lines were drawn to create India and Pakistan, but these were still being “negotiated”. Even on independence, many villages did not even know whether they belonged to India or Pakistan. And there were the tricky issues of princely states like Junagadh and Hyderabad. And there was Kashmir.

So things were very fluid on 15th August 1947, though technically India and Pakistan had both become independent nations.
The mass migration of millions across borders, with all the violence and pain that ensued – how can one ever forget that! People lost everything, their families, their possessions. Their entire life got uprooted as they became refugees in their new world.

Then, post independence, the massive task of bringing more than 565 princely states into the fold of one nation. How challenging was that! Some agreed to be part of India. Different tactics were needed to bring the others into the fold.

All this while communal harmony, already severely tested in the tense times leading upto the partition, was just about hanging by a thread. The partition exposed fault lines much more nakedly – there was resentment amongst Hindus in India for Muslims who had not migrated. And the other way round in Pakistan.

As we know, many Muslim artistes in the Hindi film industry even changed their names to Hindu-sounding names to avoid becoming targets of hatred, and to appeal to the largely Hindu audiences.

Such was the fragility of Indian communal harmony in the immediate aftermath of independence.

Talking of fragility, it was not only communal harmony that was fragile. Independent India had inherited unprecedented levels of poverty, exacerbated by partition woes. Its economy was in very bad shape. Poor living conditions meant disease was not uncommon. Added to this was a very high level of illiteracy and social backwardness in general.

Kashmir was still a burning issue, Gandhiji got assassinated.

The overall situation looked so bleak at one time that Life Magazine, in the late 1940s, even ran a story along the lines of “Will India survive?” Clearly the world was skeptical.

Thankfully, our Founding Fathers were not.

Even in the midst of all these seemingly insurmountable challenges, they stayed steadfast on course, buoyed by the exuberance of having a new baby to nurture and nourish. Yes, there were challenges – but, to them, these were teething troubles.

Despite differences amongst themselves (yes, they did have differences!), they were united on one thing – all of them had a dream of a strong, resilient, and free India. Their views on how to get there might have been different – Nehru might have had a socialist mindset, Rajaji a more capitalist mindset – but they shared this common dream.

This dream involved providing, for every Indian, a fair opportunity at life. A life of dignity. India would be a country where justice would be available to one and all. A country which had hitherto been suppressed, but whose peoples would now be able to breathe freely, not be enslaved to any thought. They would be free to pursue a religion of their choice. India would be a country whose people would feel a sense of fraternity towards each other, not be divided by regionalism, casteism, religion and other such divisive elements.

This dream got enshrined in the form of a Constitution for India. When India became a Republic on 26th January 1950, it further underlined the vision of the Founding Fathers – that there would be no monarchy in India, that there would be elected representatives, elected by the people. There’s a lot more in the Constitution – it lays down the terms of reference between organs of the State, separation of powers between the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, it talks about fundamental rights and duties of citizens.

While there is always scope for improvement, and any document should be a living document kept in tune with the times, the Constitution of India does provide a great framework for the country. Without it, there would be utter chaos.

And for this Constitution too, we need to thank our Founding Fathers and their vision.

I know none of this is new to anyone – and I am rambling – but I do think that at least on Independence Day (if not on other days) we need to remind ourselves of how much struggle, sacrifice and effort went into first making India an independent nation, and then ensuring it survived against the greatest of odds.

Unless and until we appreciate the magnitude of the challenges that were faced and overcome at that time, we will not be able to value the freedom we have today.

So I hope you will excuse my rather long history lesson. 🙂 If there are any inaccuracies here, please do let me know. I’m happy to be corrected.

The song “hum laaye hain toofaan se kashti nikaal ke” comes to mind in this regard.

Now to today’s India. Let’s take stock of where we are.

We’ve come a long way from those early fragile years. Sure, we’re still not where we’d like to be, but we’re definitely not looking at an existential crisis.

Economically too we are far better off today. Although we still have millions below the poverty line, and many above it still struggling to make both ends meet, we are better off than the “independence” generation. Many of us will admit that our own fathers and forefathers had a much tougher life than we are having now.

Education levels have also significantly improved. I have doubts about the quality of education as I see many “highly-qualified” Indians unable to comprehend basics, completely lacking in logical or analytical thinking, lacking in life-skills, but that’s for another debate. Let’s just say, we have many millions more “educated” Indians today.

In many other areas, like tackling disease, or improving sanitation or road infrastructure, India is progressing. It’s a 71-year young nation now, one would expect nothing less.

So on the material front, I think India is on the right track. Still a long way to go, still a lot of poverty to eradicate, but I have hope.

My bigger concern is to do with freedom and independence. Not of India, but of Indians.

I happen to think India became free and independent on 15th August 1947 – but only in a political sense.

Indians are FAR from being free or independent, even today, 71 years later.

When Indians attained freedom from colonial rule, they expected to be able to lead their lives as free citizens. No more being slaves to anyone, no more being treated like third-class citizens.

The reality though is that we are still slaves. Not to British masters anymore, but to Indian ones.

The difference is, we didn’t elect those British masters, we now elect our Indian masters. The specific individuals change, but the underlying master-slave relationship doesn’t.

In theory, in a democracy, we, the people, have power. We elect representatives on our behalf to run the affairs of the country. These representatives are therefore “public servants”, supposed to serve the interests of the people. They are supposed to be accountable to the people for the tasks assigned to them. They are also accountable to the people for funds utilized by them because these funds are collected from, and on behalf of, the people. They are supposed to be transparent about their work, so that the public can evaluate progress (or lack of it).

This is the theory.

We all know how things work in practice.

But why don’t they work?

Simply because there is a huge power imbalance between the people and their representatives. These representatives, so-called “public servants”, have steadily increased their power quotient at the cost of the people they are supposed to serve. As it is, they have the power to make laws – so they make or modify laws to strengthen their power position, to legitimize their power grab, thus further skewing the imbalance in their favour. Sel-aggrandizement is the mantra.

This isn’t just the story of one political party – this is with practically every political party.

Which is why the solution isn’t to just replace one party with another.

The solution is to structurally redress this power imbalance.

Make the public more powerful.

How?

There is very little power in the hands of one individual. I can scream from my rooftop but my single voice means nothing.

But there is a lot of power in a large group. The larger, the better.

When a large group chooses to raise its voice, these representatives have no choice but to listen. Otherwise they know they will be on the wrong side of the numbers game.

And in a democracy, it is all about a numbers game.

But for a large group to raise its voice against the powers-that-be, it has to, first of all, be free. It must NOT have a slave mentality.

And that’s a big problem in India.

Maybe due to historical baggage of being ruled by maharajas, many Indians are still subservient to authority. They are still happy to be “ruled”. Feudalism, although less today, still plays its role in perpetuating this master-slave relationship.

This is also why SO many Indians still have this “mai-baap” attitude towards government and other powers-that-be. They fall at the feet of politicians, seeking favours, sometimes even begging for something that is their right, but has been denied to them.

And of course, the politicians then act high-and-mighty, dishing out largesse as if they are royalty. They act generous – it’s easy to be generous with other people’s money. A sizeable share of the public’s hard-earned money is distributed as an act of generosity by the politicians. And they get praise for this. Not to mention votes.

It is THIS mentality that is my biggest issue with Indians. This slave mentality.

Which is why I say India became a free country on 15th August 1947 – but Indians are still slaves.

Just to clarify, I wouldn’t blame the poor or destitute for this. They are barely struggling to survive on a daily basis – they hardly have any choice or agency. But those who DO have a choice, who don’t HAVE to grovel before the powers-that-be but still do so, they are the ones who are undermining the effort to redress the power imbalance. They are often the ones to first stand up in defence for the powers-that-be, against their own fellow citizens.

So on this Independence Day, my request to all Indians is to abolish this slave mindset – and be free. If you don’t want to be treated like a third-class citizen, you first need to stop behaving like one.

Freedom is too precious to let it be taken away from you by anyone. Like Sahir said “zindagi bheekh mein nahin milti, zindagi badh ke chheeni jaati hai…apna haq sangdil zamaane se, chheen pao, to koi baat baney”.

And please stand up for those who try to break these chains of slavery. As I said earlier, this battle cannot be fought by one individual. So when someone is trying to fight against oppression, against slavery, please support his or her effort, instead of undermining it by being loyal to the master.

Even during our Freedom Struggle, there were Indians who undermined the effort of fellow Indians by taking the side of the British. This only made the freedom struggle harder.

I hope we have learnt from that lesson.

There are a lot more thoughts in my head on this Independence Day – there are a lot more improvements I’d like to see in India. Especially with regard to society.

The thing is, if we harbour aspirations to be a truly developed nation, we need to also have progressive thought in society. Mere material progress isn’t enough.

It saddens me to see that even in 2018, some of our thinking is regressive.

Patriarchy is still rampant in Indian society – with all its negative consequences for women, and even men. It is one of the biggest reasons for rapes and other forms of violence against women.

Then, our casteism. Even today, Dalits are discriminated against – let’s not pretend they aren’t.

Indian society is full of prejudices – just look at matrimonial columns to get an idea.

There’s a lot more that bothers me – I could go on and on.

But this post has already become too long – and each of these topics deserves proper discussion and treatment of its own.

So I will stop here on these topics.

Just to clarify, I’m not saying we haven’t come a long way. We have. But we still have a very long way to go – in terms of poverty alleviation/elimination and society upgradation.

The responsibility lies largely with those of us who are relatively privileged and educated. Even the Freedom Struggle counted amongst its leaders many well-educated Indians, of whom many had had the opportunity to study or live abroad and get a different perspective on life and their country.

So those of us who are in a position to make a difference need to do so. But for that, we first need to CARE for our less-privileged fellow citizens. Instead of looking down on them, we need to think of how we can make their lives better. We need to help make them free and independent citizens. Remember, WE are the fortunate ones, to even be able to read this online. I don’t mean this in the slightest patronizing sense – the fact is that we are all privileged. Millions are not.

Also remember, those well-off Indians from the Freedom Struggle could very easily have just enjoyed their privilege instead of throwing themselves into the Struggle. They chose to make sacrifices because the cause they were fighting for, was bigger than their individual selves.

We need a similar cause that we can all rally around today. If that is the prosperity of India, it must mean the prosperity of all Indians, not just a select few. But prosperity, without peace and harmony, is useless. So the cause must encompass all these components.

India is nothing without Indians. It would be just a piece of land. So talking about “making INDIA a great nation” is all just empty rhetoric if we are not working towards making the future of INDIANS great. And again here I mean ALL Indians, not a select few.

For me it is all about the individual first. She or he is the unit-level of existence. If the individual isn’t empowered, if she or he isn’t free, what’s to celebrate about the nation being free? The nation is just a bunch of individuals, right?

You might not agree with my thoughts (and that’s perfectly fine!) – I’m just sharing them here on request of Avinashji. 

A lot more running in my head too – but this post has already become way too long now, so let me get to the song for the occasion.

It is a non-film song. A patriotic song composed by Khayyam, sung by Rafisaab, to Sahir’s lyrics.

I heard this song for the first time only a few days ago – I quite liked it. I hope you like it too.

Happy Independence Day. And thanks for your patience in tolerating this long post. 🙂

“Durga Pooja”(1962), not to be confused with “Durga Pooja”(1954), was a bhakti pradhan movie which was produced and directed by Adarsh for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Jaimala, Anant Kumar, Hiralal, B M Vyas, Naazi, Mohan Modi, Deepak, Master Raja, Sandeep, Baby Shobha, Champak Lal, Poonam Kapoor, Rehana Zariwala, Lalita etc in it.

The movie had 13 songs in it. Details of songs are not available in HFGK for any of these songs which are all rare songs.

Here is the first song from “Durga Pooja”(1962) to appear in the blog. As mentioned above, singer is not known, but it is clear from the voice that the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. Music is compose d by Pt Shivram.

Only audio of this song is available. From the lyrics, it can be deduced that a female devotee is praying to goddess Durga requesting her to cause rain to fall on earth where people are suffering from water scarcity. It is the first such song that I am aware of where Goddess Durga is asked for something which is not in her jurisdiction. 🙂 Causing rainfall falls under(pun uninted) Lord Indra, but the devotee is apparently not aware about the distribution of portfolios among various gods and goddesses. 🙂

With this song, “Durga Pooja”(1962) makes its debut in the blog. And rather appropriately, this song makes it to the blog on a day (5 june 2018) which is being observed as “World Environment Day”.

Lyrics

duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja
duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja

tujhko khabar ye mujhko khabar
ke sab hai khwaab suhaana
do din mauj udaata ja aa
duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja

kal kisne dekha hai ae
soch le aaj ki baaten
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

kal kisne dekha hai
soch le aaj ki baaten
kal aaye na aaye
phir ye din aur ye raaten
jab tak dam mein dam hai tere
jab tak dam mein dam hai tere
dil dil se takraata ja aa
duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja

kuchh keh le kuchh sun le ae
ulfat ke afsaane
aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa

kuchh keh le kuchh sun le
ulfat ke afsaane
duniyan mein kismat se
milte hain dil deewaane
aankhen daal ke aankh mein tu
aankhen daal ke aankh mein tu
jhoom jhoom ke gaata ja aa
duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja

tujhko khabar ye mujhko khabar
ke sab hai khwaab suhaana
do din mauj udaata ja aa
duniya teri na duniya meri
ye duniya ek fasaana
do din mauj udaata ja
