On Children’s Day (14th November) we had introduced the children’s film, Dak Ghar (1965) to the blog. This film, produced by the Children’s Film Society of India, is based on the Bengali play of the same name, written by Rabindranath Tagore in 1912.

Today is the 14th of November, celebrated in India as Children’s Day.

This is a day that is remembered to mark the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister and one of India’s Founding Fathers, Jawaharlal Nehru. Since he was considered to be particularly close to children, the day is celebrated as Children’s Day.

As I continue to search for songs for this series, I continue to keep getting surprises. I keep uncovering uncommonly wonderful gems that either I have not heard before, or keep bumping into songs that are memories from long ago, but not heard for a long time. Today’s song is one that I am encountering for the first time. Searching for a good song starting with today’s alphabet, as I was trawling through the folders of Rafi Sb songs on my hard disk, I found this gem a few days ago. A gem that I had not heard before. The year is 1966. This song should have been in memory banks from radio listening days. But no, I do not recall having heard it before.

I could not have missed the next episode in the Hindi alphabet series on Rafi Sb today. And it is by good luck that I am able to locate a song that adds one more anniversary together, and quite appropriately so.

Missing Films of 1960s – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

To each his due – that is an adage that basically covers all the destinies, whether right or wrong, whether happy or sad. The struggle to definitively define whether success is destined, or whether it can be achieved through hard work, is a tough task indeed. Logic and arguments work both ways. Believers of destiny even go as far to propound that one will put hard work in life, because that is what the destiny says should be. And sometimes one tends to lean towards that argument – for there are numerous cases we know of people successful without having to put in too much hard work, or having displayed much capabilities. And of course, there are cases, also very numerous, where highly capable people are seen putting in lot of hard work most of their lives, but still, the coveted fruits of success elude them. And so, after witnessing so many such seemingly unfortunate lives, living through such seemingly unfair circumstances, one is eventually resigned to say – to each his due.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 31
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Memories may be of joy, or they may be of melancholy. But memories are always very dear to the heart. Always. For the memories carry segments of our own past, our experiences, and the times that we have traveled through. If we could control time, life would have no place for memories. If we could navigate the time, as we navigate the space, then we could, at will, return to the past moments and relive them, as we desired. But no, the time is not in our control. We are, in turn, tied to an ever forward-progressing passage of time, where the moments once passed, can never be revisited. And so, the Designer of this universe, invented the artifact of memory, placed it in our brains, and linked it to our hearts and minds. And so, we remember.

Missing Films of 1960s – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I return to one of the requests of Arvinder ji that has been pending for some time now. His reminders keep coming to me, and there are more pending requests from him lined up in my inbox.

This song can well be the continuation of the ‘Memory Ticklers’ series. A lilting melody that was often heard on the radio when I used to regularly listen, and then later it seemed to have faded from the memories. Depend on Arvinder ji to recall and remind to dig up such gems to once again be played and listened.

As it is, I am able to maintain little regularity and consistency in posting the songs that I so dearly want to. And then there are other factors that keep distracting me and taking me away from my own planned tracks (pun intended🙂 ). So I get to start preparing a particular song for posting. And then a message will intervene – “do you have such and such song? Goodness, I just need to listen to it now” or a variation is that someone else, very dear to the requestor wants to listen to it. And so, one more draft continues to sit in the wordpress and my hard disk, and completely different song starts getting prepared.

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.
