Today (19 july 2016) is the eighth anniversary of this blog. On this occasion, I as well as some of our regulars have shared our views on the blog.

I have shared my views in two posts and I find that I still have some more things to say that have not been covered in my previous articles. So here is another writeup on the occasion.:)

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

In our effort to bring on the films of 1960s as yet missing from the blog, today with enter the year 1963.

To recap the status, I am giving below the list of films from 1961 and 1962, for which we are as yet unable to trace any songs.

The strongest image that remains in the mind is that of the film director Sinha Saab, a bedraggled man in tattered garments, with ruffled grey hair and white beard, a leathery skin on face lined with wrinkles that appeared much before time – a young person who aged too rapidly for his years. With help of a walking stick, he climbs down from the shadows of the scaffolding where he has perched himself, watching the action on the floor below – the same floor where once, not too long ago, he was the ringmaster, and everyone bowed to him. Not anymore. Today, he is a ‘has been’, who lost his touch of Midas, and the same world that once clamored to him, has quickly forgotten and relegated him, literally, to the garbage heap.

With difficulty, he negotiates the narrow ladders that lead down from the scaffolding to the studio floor. Once there, he shuffles to the chair, his chair, in the days of glory; the chair with the word ‘Director’ written across its back. He sits. And then he is immobile, never to get up again, never to wake up.

When the crowd of workers return after lunch, everyone is shocked to see this grimy old man, sitting motionless in the director’s chair. Everyone is known to him, but today no one recognizes him, now that he is gone. None, save one light-boy, who remembers and recognizes his earliest benefactor – Sinha Saab.

The power of these images and these sequences now have a cult following, not only in India but worldwide. Remembering Guru Dutt on his seventy seventh anniversary. (9th July)

Today (1 may 2016) is known as “May Day” or International Labour Day. Many countries celebrate another festival (spring festival) on this day which is called “May Day”. The labour related “May Day” is celebrated only in few countries on this day. There are countries that celebrate the International Labour day on some other date.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 30
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The inboxes on my email, mobile and YouTube account seems to be getting as many reminder messages these days, as messages for request.:) This song apparently has not yet surfaced in public domain. And for those who have heard it, and remember it, this is a vintage Chitragupt melody – stuff that memory ticklers are made of. I got requests from more than one friend (Arvinder ji included, of course) to post this song. And our dear friend Manju ji (daughter of producer director K Amarnath) is also waiting for this song.

This blog began over seven years ago. In the beginning, I would discuss songs that came to my mind, one song a day. After a month, I began to discuss several songs per day.

With time, began to have centuries of songs. One thing led to another and then we had centuries of songs of artists as well. Those were the days when we were in the dark about the number of songs sung by artists, number of songs contained in movies, as well as the tortal number of songs that may be there.

This song is a special search request from a dear friend Arvinder ji Sharma.  Regular team members would have noticed this name being appended to the email ‘To’ list in recent email exchanges.  I got introduced to him, at first through our mutual friend Zafar Bhai, and then once again the threads met thanks to AK ji (of SOY) when he invited us for a get together.

There is an email from Avinash ji today morning wherein he has commented about the pace of posting in the current couple of weeks.  I quote – “. . . and this is where all my daily routine is getting affected, because the blog and the posts is my biggest motivation and new posts are not coming at earlier pace (leave alone my contributions:) even others’ are very less, no doubt, as you had said our BOSSES must be having some other priorities#”.  So not exactly taken by any surprises, still it is heartening to note that the daily routine of our fellow travelers is entwined with the set of daily posts that appear on this blog. I know there have been similar discussions and comments in the past.  And the spirit continues.:)
