Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 35
————————————————————————————–
And Kavi Pradeep has written a couple of lines for people such as these. . .

kya log thhey wo deewaane
kya log thhey wo abhimaani

Lines that describe so aptly the young rebel lions of India – a group that came together to fight for unshackling the chains of the oppressive and cruel alien rule that had continued to serve its own ends, at the cost of the assets and riches of our nation.  A group that had members from all parts of the country, a group that was formed cutting across all the divisions and components of the society – Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azaad, Bhai Parmanand, Kartar Singh Sarabha, Batukeshwar Dutt, Ashfaaqullah, Shivaram Rajguru, Sukhdev, Ramprasad Bismil, Harnam Singh Saini, Bhagwati Charan Vohra, Durgawati Devi, Kishori Lal, Dharam Singh Hayatpur, Jatendranath Das, Sher Ali Afridi, Jai Dev Kapur, Shiv Verma, Kundan Lal, Mahabir Verma, Rajendra Lahiri, Thakur Roshan Singh, Sachindra Bakshi, Keshab Chakravarty, Banwari Lal, Murari Lal Gupta, Mukundi Lal, Manmathnath Gupta, Mohammed Abdullah, Gaya Prasad, Kanwal Nath Tiwari, Vijay Kumar Sinha, Prem Dutt, Des Raj, Ajay Kumar Ghosh. . . the list goes on and on in the pages of the history of the nation’s struggle for freedom.

Yes, they were “deewaane”. Theirs was a single-mindedness of purpose that put to shame even the word ‘deewaana’ itself. Bhagat Singh was a scholar of political ideologies, and his beliefs, his writings are wondrous gems coming from a mind so young. Violence was not his first or last resort, ideas and ideologies were. On 8th April, 1929, when he and BK Dutt threw two bombs in the legislative assembly in Delhi, they also threw leaflets explaining their cause and their action. The leaflet was written by Bhagat Singh himself. A line in the leaflet says – “It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled, while the ideas survived.” He went on to say – “पिस्तौल, बम, तलवार क्रान्ति नहीं लाते, बल्कि क्रान्ति विचारों की शान से पैदा होती है।” (Revolutions are born from the glory of ideas, not from pistols, bombs or swords).

And yes, they were “abhimaani” indeed. The dignity and pride of self-esteem was paramount. His belief in his right to freedom was steadfast. For him, violence was just an instrument for implementing and showcasing the ideas of freedom. To that end, even Gandhi ji has written in one of his famous articles in the magazine ‘Young India’. The article is titled ‘Between Cowardice and Violence’. In this, Gandhi ji writes,

“My creed of nonviolence is an extremely active force. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness. There is hope for a violent man to be some day non-violent, but there is none for a coward. I have, therefore, said more than once….that, if we do not know how to defend ourselves, our women and our places of worship by the force of suffering, i.e., nonviolence, we must, if we are men, be at least able to defend all these by fighting.”

Bhagat Singh himself wrote these words, when making a statement in court, during the trial of the bombing case –

“Force when aggressively applied is ‘violence’ and is, therefore, morally unjustifiable, but when it is used in the furtherance of a legitimate cause, it has its moral justification”.

After the killing of police officers Saunders in Lahore, Bhagat Singh and his associates escaped and had gone underground. When the plans were made to lob bombs in the Legislative Assembly, at first the group was against Bhagat Singh’s participation, because of his earlier association with the Saunders case. In the end, he prevailed and the group agreed to let him take the lead. The bombs were thrown, the leaflets were flung in the ensuing confusion. And it would have been an easy thing for Bhagat Singh and BK Dutt to escape under the cover of the cloud of smoke. But they stood their ground and let themselves be arrested. For Bhagat Singh believed that striking and then fleeing only ended up proclaiming them as terrorists. His purpose was to stand his ground, be arrested, and then get a visibility and a platform to expound his message to the public at large.

The trial of Bhagat Singh and his associates was, at best, a mockery of the Britisher’s own judicial system. The process adopted by the trial court was put in place through an unauthorized ordinance promulgated by the Viceroy, Lord Irwin. The ordinance itself was never approved by the Legislative Council or the Privy Council, as required by their own law. And it lapsed, even before seeing the light of approval by any authority.

On this fateful day in 1931, the execution was carried out in secrecy, and one day in advance of the announced schedule. The mortal remains of the executed heroes were removed from the jail premises in motor lorries in the dead of the night, and disposed of at an unknown place on the banks of Sutlej river, close to Ferozepur.

The news of the execution broke in newspapers on 25th March, 1931. A nation mourned the demise of the young rebel heroes. Gandhi ji said the following,

Bhagat Singh did not wish to live. He refused to apologise, or even file an appeal. Bhagat Singh was not a devotee of non-violence, but he did not subscribe to the religion of violence. He took to violence due to helplessness and to defend his homeland. In his last letter, Bhagat Singh wrote, ” I have been arrested while waging a war. For me there can be no gallows. Put me into the mouth of a cannon and blow me off.” These heroes had conquered the fear of death. Let us bow to them a thousand times for their heroism.

Subhash Bose praised the ultimate sacrifice with the words, “Bhagat Singh has become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths”.

Pt Nehru acknowledged that Bhagat Singh’s popularity was leading to a new national awakening. He said,:

“He was a clean fighter who faced his enemy in the open field … he was like a spark that became a flame in a short time and spread from one end of the country to the other dispelling the prevailing darkness everywhere”. He would later also write, “Bhagat Singh did not become popular because of his act of terrorism but because he seemed to vindicate, for the moment, the honour of Lala Lajpat Rai, and through him of the nation. He became a symbol, the act was forgotten, the symbol remained, and within a few months each town and village of the Punjab, and to a lesser extent in the rest of northern India, resounded with his name. Innumerable songs grew about him and the popularity that the man achieved was something amazing”.

Mohammed Ali Jinnha wrote,

“. . . he believes in the justice of his cause … however much you deplore them and, however, much you say they are misguided, it is the system, this damnable system of governance, which is resented by the people”.

Four years after Bhagat Singh’s execution, the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Sir Horace Williamson, wrote: “His photograph was on sale in every city and township and for a time rivaled in popularity even that of Mr. Gandhi himself”.

The singular act of ‘deewangi’ and ‘abhimaan’ has made Bhagat Singh a symbol of willful resistance against injustice, in any form or color. These were the young men with a determination of steel, whose resolve to not apologize and not to sign a mercy petition, for their acts of unbridled bravery in the face of an oppressive tyranny.

And the world remembers them. Even more than the image of any other leader of the non-violent or the violent versions of the struggle for freedom, even today one encounters the image of Bhagat Singh staring back from the sides of trucks, rear windshields of cars and other private and public vehicles, graffiti and motifs on the walls in the most unexpected places. It is an enduring legend that has caught the fancy of the people’s minds, from generation to generation.

Ashfaqullah Khan, another legendary martyr who was executed in 1927, at an age of 27 years, for his role in the Kakori train robbery case, wrote this original verse,

शहीदों के मज़ारों पर जुड़ेंगे हर बरस मेले
वतन पे मरने वालों का यही बाकी निशां होगा

On the mausoleums of martyrs
Carnivals of celebration will assemble every year
This shall remain as the last vestige
Of those who sacrificed themselves for the country

Today’s song is from the 1963 film ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh’. The verses are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram. The singing voice is not identified, and I request friends and readers to please help identify it.

The poetry in this song is in Punjabi language. In the lyrics section, I have attempted to also present the lines of poetry in translated Hindi. I seek apology if this translation is not perfect and poetical enough.

23rd March will serve to sustain the legacy and the memory of Bhagat Singh and others.

Lest we forget.

 


Song – Chadh Ke Sooli Bharat Maa De Jis Ne Kasht Nivaare  (Shaheed Bhagat Singh) (1963) Singer – Unattributed, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

waareya jinen desh ton
bachpan ditti ghol jawaani
kadey wi saanu bhagat singh di
bhulni nahin qurbaani

chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

dhan dhan sardar kishen singh
janm jide ghar paaya
thar thar dharti amber kamban
putt sherni jaaya
ghutti de azaadi waali
maata dudh pilaaya
bharat maa ne lai ke us ton
apni god bahaaya
kendi mere kasht nivaarin
je tu mera jaaya
pooja teri hove
mere dukh haringe saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

public safety bill firangi
jadon banaavan lagge
hind lai ik navi musibat
hot jagaavan lagge
bhagat singh te dutt enaan nu
mazaa chakhaavan lagge
vich assembly baamb maareya
sab ghabraavan lagge
khabraan gaiaan london
gorey soch daudaavan lagge
hun na bharat sahe ghulami
kaaran kameti saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

ona dinaan saandars kise ne
goli naal udaaya
kaatil os da bhagat singh nu
gairaan ne thehraaya
ik baamb da ik katal da
dohra case chalaaya
jhoothiaan lai gawaahiaan onu
faansi da hukam sunaaya
sun ke hukam maut da khidyaa
matthe vatt na paaya
gaj ke naare sheraan vaangu
inqlaab de maare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

धन धन सरदार किशन सिंह

थर थर धरती अंबर कम्बन

घुट्टी दे आज़ादी वाली
माता दुद्ध पिलाया
भारत माँ ने लै के उस तों

जिसने अपना बचपन देश पर वार दिया
और घोल दी अपनी जवानी
हम कभी भी भगत सिंह की
नहीं भूलेंगे ये कुर्बानी

चढ़ कर सूली पर जिसने
भारत माँ के कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कभी ना हिन्द भूल पाये

धन्य है सरदार किशेन सिंह
जिनके घर पे जन्म पाया
धरती और अंबर थर थर काँपें
इस वीर शेरनी के पुत्र से
माँ ने जिसे दूध में
आज़ादी की घुट्टी पिलाई
और भारत माँ ने उसे ले कर
अपनी गोद में बैठाया
उससे कहा तू मेरा बेटा
मेरे कष्ट निवार दे
तेरी पूजा होगी
जो तू मेरे दुख हर ले सारे

अंग्रेजों ने जब पब्लिक सेफ़्टी बिल
के बनाने की करी तैयारी
हिन्द के लिए एक नई मुसीबत
और जगाने लगे
भगत सिंह और बटुकेश्वर दत्त
इनको मज़ा चखाने लगे
असेम्बली के बीच बम्ब मारा
सब घबरा गए
लंदन तक खबर जा पहुंची
अंग्रेजों की सोच दौड़ लगाने लगी
सब कहने लगे के अब
भारत गुलामी और नहीं सहने वाला

उन्हीं दिनों पुलिस अफसर साँडर्स का
किसी ने क़तल कर दिया
और गैरों ने भगत सिंह को
क़ातिल कह के फंसा दिया
और भगत सिंह पर दोहरा मुक़द्दमा चला
बम्ब का और क़तल का
झूठी गवाहियां करवा कर
भगत सिंह को फांसी की सज़ा सुना दी
फांसी का हुकम सुन के वो खुश हुआ
माथे पर एक भी बल नहीं आया
और शेर की तरह गरज कर
इंकलाब के नारे लगाए

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

Blog Day :

4912 Post No. : 16730

Today, December 29, 2021 is the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, singer, actor and the music director in Hindi and Bangla films. The resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar seems to have influenced the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan to try him as a playback singer in Hindi films. Subir Sen sang just 28 songs in Hindi films in the span of around 12 years. Most of the songs he rendered became popular.

Subir Sen (24/07/1934 – 29/12/2015) was born in Assam and grew up in Guwahati where his father had a pharmacy business. He completed his matriculation from Guwahati. From the childhood, he was drawn towards music and this was the reason that made his father to shift to Kolkata after selling his pharmacy business. During his growing up days, he was highly influenced by the singing of Dhananjay Bhattacharya, Hemant Kumar and Talat Mehmood. When he started singing their songs in some programmes, the audience started appreciating his renditions. He felt that he can also sing like his favourite singers which made him to pursue the singing as a career.

Subir Sen enrolled himself in Marris College of Music (later renamed as Bhatkhande Music Institute), Lucknow. During the third year of his college, he received the first prize for singing a vilambit Khayal in raag Purvi. Later, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri, a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. On the advice of Acharya Chinmoy, Subir Sen learnt the Thumri singing from Usha Ranjan Mukherjee for over 2 years.

On an invitation from Guru Dutt, Subir Sen along with the music director, Sudhin Dasgupta shifted to Mumbai and became the part of the Guru Dutt’s Films for his film under production (probably for ‘Pyaasa’1957). However, though they were on the payroll of Guru Dutt Films, they never got opportunity to sing in his film. It is said that Guru Dutt sent Subir Sen to S D Burman for audition. He introduced himself as a singer who sang in the style of Hemant Kumar. S D Burman rejected him without taking his audition by asking him as to why he should use him when he can have the original voice of Hemant Kumar. (Source: Interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma on S D Burman).

While Sudhin Dasgupta returned to Kolkata, Subir Sen got an opportunity to sing for the first time in Hindi films under the baton of Shankar-Jaikishan who were impressed with the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar. The first song he sang in Hindi film was manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye in ‘Kathputli’ (1957) picturised on Balraj Sahni. The song became very popular and was one of the three songs from ‘Kathputli’ (1957) to figure in the top 32 songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1958. In 1959-60, Subir Sen sang six songs in six films with six music directors (including one under the baton of Hemant Kumar), all of which became popular.

Subir Sen again came into the attention when his song, dil mera ek aas ka panchhi picturised on Rajendra Kumar (who was nick named as ‘Jubilee Kumar’), became even more popular than his first song, ranking 5th among the top 32 Hindi film songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1961.

With the kind of the early successes, Subir Sen must have dreamt of a bright future for him as a playback singer in Hindi films. But his discography in the table given below reveals that his playback singing career in Hindi films did not reach to a level to make a living out of it. In most of the films, he got the opportunity to sing only one song.

27 sedin dujone dulechhinu bone (Bangla) Anubhav (1971) Solo Rabindranath Tagore
28 koi mera ho gaya Midnight (1972) Solo Subir Sen

The initial euphoria Subir Sen created in Hindi film music due to the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar may have becoming a stumbling block in his playback singing career. It would be a natural response from the music directors that they would rather work with Hemant Kumar who had already established himself as a playback singer than Subir Sen. Also, producers, directors, actors and the film financiers/distributors have their own preferences for playback singers among the established ones.

Ashutosh Banerjee, music director who had composed many Bangla films and non-film songs for Subir Sen was of the view that while in Mumbai, Subir Sen started listening to a lot of western music during which Jim Reeves and Nat King Cole became his favourite singers. From Jim Reeves, he picked up the tonal quality and from Nat King Cole the drama in singing. In his subsequent renditions, Subir Sen was influenced by the styles of these two American singers.

Some changes in Subir Sen’s rendition style are evident in his later songs. For instance, in ‘dheere chalo zara’ from ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’ (1961), one can feel some shades of Mukesh in the song. In ‘dekho na jaaneman’ which he sang for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Boy Friend’ (1961), his voice sounds somewhat different giving a feel of Manna Dey. I have listened to some of his Bangla non-film songs and I feel that he had adapted to a style of rendition to sound somewhat different from Hemant Kumar’s voice. For examples, ‘oy ujjwal din’ and ‘pagol hawa’ (a rehash of non-film Bangla song originally sung by Jatileshwar Mukherjee and ‘na jaane tum’ from ‘Chhoti Si Baat’, 1976).

With his playback singing career in Hindi films getting stangnated, Subir Sen returned to Kolkata sometime in early 1970s. He recorded hundreds of Bengali modern and Rabindra Sangeet numbers over three decades. He also acted along with Uttam Kumar in Bangla film, ‘Momer Alo’ (1964) and in Hindi film “Anubhav’ (1971).

Subir Sen and also Dwijen Mukherjee could not create a place for themselves in Hindi films mainly because they were born with their voice boxes almost similar to Hemant Kumar. And both of them were the contemporary of Hemant Kumar and in competition with him. Also, they came at a time when the troika of the main male playback singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had already well-established in Hindi film industry.

On the occasion of the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, I am presenting ‘chaand tale jhoom jhoom tirak rahi hai’ rendered by him with Suman Kalyanpur for the film ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963). The song is written by Shailendra which is set to music by Dattaram.

With this song, all the six songs of ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ have been covered in the Blog.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) was produced by Surinder Kapoor under the banner of Amar Chhaaya Films and was directed by Kedar Kapoor. The star cast included Geeta Bali and Pradeep Kumar in the lead role with the supporting cast of Agha, Vijaylaxmi, Siddhu, Sunder, Tun Tun, Mohan Choti, Ravikant etc. Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Bhagwan, Kumkum, and Shyama made their guest appearances in the film. This was Surinder Kapoor’s maiden film as a producer.

I was wondering as to how Surinder Kapoor could manage to rope in Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor for the qawwali song in the film. It became clear when I came to know that Surinder Kapoor was the cousin of Prithviraj Kapoor. When he shifted to Mumbai from Peshawar in 1950, Prithviraj Kapoor helped him in getting his first job as an assistant to K Asif in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960). Since the film took a lot of time to be completed, Surinder Kapoor left K Asif and became the Secretary to Geeta Bali. Kedar Kapoor, the film’s director was from Peshawar. Probably, he may also be related to Prithviraj Kapoor.

It was Geeta Bali who encouraged Surinder Kapoor to become a film producer. She arranged the finance, the crew and the cast. So, getting the guest actors for the qawwali song became an easy task for Surinder Kapoor. The film was launched in 1958 and got completed in 1963. The film did not fare well on the box office. This was the last released film of Geeta Bali.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) had six songs in the film written by Shailendra (5) and Anand Bakshi (1) which were set to music by Dattaram. Four songs have been covered on the Blog.

Here is the 5th song ‘Muhammad Shah Rangeele gaawat aaj prem raag’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Manna Dey on the words of Shailendra. The video clip of the song is not available on any video sharing platform. So, it is difficult to know as to in which context, this song was picturised in the film. My wild guess is that the song may have been picturised on Agha in a comical situation using the bandish-based classical song.

Muhammad Shah ‘Rangeela’ was the Mughal emperor during 1719 to 1748. He was a patron of performing arts and music. His court had many musicians, the prominent among them being Niyamat Khan who used to compose bandishes under his pen name. ‘Sadarang’ and his nephew, Feroz Khan under the pen name of ‘Adarang’. Sadarang has been credited with the introduction of Khayal as a form of Hindustani classical music. He composed many Khayal bandishes for his desciples which included a few women from the harem of Muhammed Shah ‘Rangeela’.

There are some persons who are known by their work and not by their names. Niyamat Khan was one of them whose name is unknown for the present generation. Some of us may have listened to his khayal bandishes rendered by stalwarts like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Ustad Amir Khan, Ustad Rashid Khan, etc without knowing that these were composed by Niyamat Khan ‘Sadarang’.

One of the Khayal bandish composed by Niyamat Khan was ‘Muhammad Shah rangeele re, tum bin main kya karoon badariya, nit na suhaawe’ in raag Miyan Ki Malhar in praise of Muhammad Shah. The song under discussion is based on this bandish with different ‘bole’ written by Shailendra and composed by Dattaram in raag ‘Miyan Ki Malhar’. It is rendered as ‘chhota khayal’.

By the way, Muhammad shah rangeele re from ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) was also based on the abovementioned bandish. Both ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) and ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) took a long time to be completed and released. So, it is difficult to guess as to which one of two films got inspired from this bandish first.

Today’s song is from the ‘1963’ movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

I have in past written about how I find some songs which were embedded in my impressionable mind in the childhood, either because of watching some movies or listening the songs on Radio.

Today’s song is one such song.

I had in my earlier post here mentioned that I had watched this movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ when I was growing and have forgotten it now.
But I was always remembering this movie’s title and couple of its songs, and I was always looking for them.
So last year when I presented a song from this movie, I also go through the list of the other songs from this movie just out of interest. I did not listen to the remaining songs then.

Now, deviating from today’s post a little, I would like to mention one other song also from a mythological movie that I was vaguely remembering was ‘shankar bhole
bhaale shail bihaari, dam dam dam dam dmru baaje, traahimaam, traahimaam’.

I was sure that I had watched the movie where this song was there in my growing years.

I was always looking for this song and the only thing I remember was Dara Singh playing the Shivji’s role.

Few years back this song ‘shankar bhole bhaale shail bihaari’ was posted on the blog on 07.03.2016. But this did not contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Four years later I presented a song ‘bolo shiv shiv shambhu bam bam bam’ from the movie ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’. It also didn’t contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Then the ‘dam dam dam damru baje’ words were also not there, and I thought that I may have, in my growing years, mixed-up with songs from the above movies and with a song from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ which is another movie I have a nostalgia associated with it. There is a song in this movie ‘Dam Dam Dam Dam Damru baje’.

Now we come back to today’s post. About a month back when ‘shraavan’ month was about to start I started looking suitable songs to share on the blog. Also, I was looking for movies where few songs were required to ‘Yippeeee’ them on the blog.

Normally during this period of the year (i.e. shraavan month and later Ganpati festival) I am always reminded of some mythological and other movies which I had watched when I was growing.

Last year around the same time I had presented a song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’. The song was posted on 07.08.2020. Whatever songs from this movie have been posted on the blog are good songs and I like them very much.

I was remembering that there is a ‘naag-devtaa’ song in this movie. I thought I would present it on ‘Naag Panchami’ and if not on that day, I would share it in this month of ‘shraavan’ at least.

So, I take a chance to listen remaining songs from this movie and came across the today’s song. And finally, I got this ‘traahimaam …’ which actually is ‘traahimaam
Paahimaam’ 😊

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Roopkalaa Pictures’. It was produced by Mahipatray Shah. It had Anita Guha, Mahipal, with Ramsingh, Krishnakumari, Kummo Tripathi, and Raja Nene. They were supported by Ratnamala, T.N. Sinha, Prakash, Yunus Parwez, Mridula, Punam Kapoor, Baijnath, Ajit, Rehana, Uma Dutt, R.S. Dube, Munshi, Shekhar, Chand, Devchand, Lal Bahadur, Kishore, Dilawar Khan, Baby Chand, Burhan, Jugal Kishore, Dinanath, Vijay Kumar and Master Aziz.

The story of this movie was written by Vishwanath Pande, C.K. Mast, Pandit Madhur, and S.M. Abbas.
Editing of this movie was done by Ramchandra Mahadik.

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ had nine songs, all written by Pandit Bharat Vyas. The music was composed by Pandit Shivaram.

Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Mahendra Kapoor had sung six solo songs in this movie and two of them have been posted on the blog so far. That gives us four solo songs more by Mahendra Kapoor to be posted on the blog.
Today we are going to listen one of them.

Manna Dey had sung one solo and Mukesh had one duet with Suman Kalyanpur which has also been posted on the blog. Suman Kalyanpur had solo song other than the duet with Mukesh which has also been posted on the blog.

Following is the list of the songs of this movie as appearing in the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

S.No. Song Title Posted On
01 Sabko naach nachaane waala 24.11.2011
02 Bhagwaan Krishna ki amar kahaani
03 Jaa jaa jaa chhod de o chhaliyaa 07.08.2010
04 Apne piyaa ki main to bani re joganiya 25.10.2009
05 Bhaarat bhoomi mahaan hai
06 Ye duniya banaana aur banaa ke phir chalaana 07.08.2020
07 Nadiya na piye kabhi apna jal 15.05.2015
08 Ho o naag devtaa traahimaam paahimam Being presented today
09 Kan kan mein bhagwaan

As mentioned above today we listen to a song sung by Mahendra Kapoor which on screen is lip-synced by Mahipal (I have always loved watching him on the screen).

From the picturisation of the song I guess that the King’s (Yunus Parwez) son (Master Aziz) is very sick or maybe he has lost his life (because of snake-bite) and all efforts to revive him are failed. And so finally Mahipal is praying ‘Naag devtaa’ to bring back the child’s life. ‘Naag devtaa’ finally saves the child.

The video of this song is little longer and includes conversation which I have not included in the lyrics.

Let us now listen and enjoy one more song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

(I would like to see this movie moving to ‘Yippeeee-land’ as early as possible 😊 )
