Today’s song is from the film Bhagwan Parshuram-1970. It was a Mythological film made by Mewad films, Bombay. Directed by Babubhai Mistry – The king of trick scenes and a highly respected cinematographer since the 30’s decade. The 6 songs of the film were written by Madan Bharati and the music was by Jaikumar Parte, for whom this was a Debut film as a Music Director. The cast included Abhi Bhattacharya, Jayashree Gadkar, Niranjan Sharma, Sulochana, Saproo, Jeevan, Trilok Kapoor and many others.

I immensely like Mythological and religious films for many reasons. First of all, I have been seeing such films since my childhood. I was the officially nominated ‘Chaperone’ in my family to accompany the group of elders going to see these Dharmik films. I liked the film’s costumes, big palaces, trick scenes and the final ‘triumph of the good over the evil’ stories.

When the Talkie films’ era came to India, the early filmmakers tended to make films on folk tales and Mythological stories in the first decade, i.e. 1931 to 1940. In the second decade of 1940 to 1950 many religious films were made-some of them like Ram Rajya-1943 being All India blockbuster- and the third decade from 1951 to 1960 achieved the peak for Mythological films made, worth calling it ‘ The Golden period of Religious films’. As many as 124 such films were made in this decade. From 1961 to 1970 1nd 1971 to 1980 were ok, but 1980 onwards there was a decline in such films and Mythological films became scarce except some dubbed films from the South, where such films are made even today regularly. The Television became a competition to this as many Dharmik serials were shown on TV.

The reason is not that such films do not bring profit, but where was the audience to see them ? The interest, respect and knowledge of our heritage, the glorious past and our culture has diminished to a depth. Due to lack of reading habits, children have no knowledge of our religion or interest in Mythological stories. Today if you ask the following simple questions to Boys and Girls of the age group of 15 to 25 years, you will be shocked with their guess work , ignorance or blank faces….
1.Can you name the 4 Yugas ?
2. Which are the 4 Vedas ?
3. Can you name the 10 Avatars of Vishnu ?
4. Who were the wives of Laxman, Bharat and Shatrughna ?
5. For how many years the Pandava went to Vanvas and why ?

The reason for this apathy is not just modern life or modern gadgets. The causes are deep, like lack of reading habit, Text Books not having religious stories, no ” Sanskars” from parents, treating such knowledge as ‘ backward ‘ etc etc.

Anyway, all this apart, the film Bhagwan Parshuram-1970 was based on Vishnu’s avatar of Parshuram. It was a very good Dharmik picture. As we know, there were 10 Avatars Vishnu had taken.Parshuram was also one of them.(Matsya, Kurma, Varah, Narsinh, Waman,Parshuram,Shri Ram, Shri Krishna, Buddha and Kalki- which is yet to take place.)

Parshuram is known in Puranas, as one who made the Prithvi-Nikhshatriya. That is, he killed all the kshatriyas on this Prithvi, 21 times . The reason was, the Kshatriyas had gone out of control. With their weapons and power, they looted and ruled very cruelly. To control their “atyachar”, Vishnu came down as Parshuram.

Parshuram was born to Jamdagni Rishi and his wife Renuka. They had Surabhi-daughter of Kamdhenu-a cow which gave what one wished. Rakhshas Sahasrabahu,who was granted a boon of strength of thousand arms(by God Dattatreya),had become very cruel. He wanted Surabhi, but when he could not get her, he abducted Renuka. Renuka escaped and returned, but Jamdagni gave her a curse of Leprosy. Narada advises her to go on pilgrimage. Meanwhile, Parshuram helps a damsel in distress and she happens to be Princess Gayatri, daughter of Sahastrabahu. When Sahasrabahu comes to know this, he kills own daughter. Parshuram kills him and makes Gayatri alive again.

The entire film is full of major Gods like Bramha ,Vishnu, Mahesh and Indra,in addition to many lesser gods. The credits have shown a loooong list of 18 puranas etc to claim authenticity of this story. It was very interesting to see the trick scenes and revise our knowledge about Puran kathas.

In this film Jeevan had done his pet role of Narad, perhaps for the last time. He did this role many times in his career. The number of his Narad roles varies from 49 to 84 films in different sources.

This was the first film of Music Director Jay Kumar Parte in Hindi. He is yet another case of a talented person without Luck. I my last post I had written about Shridhar Parsekar, today we will have details about Jay Kumar, MD. His name was Jai Kumar Parte. He was also known as Bal Parte. He was born on 14-10-1932 at Kolhapur. His father was a doctor. His mother and father played Sitar which made the family atmosphere musical. He learnt Harmonium from Gopalrao Gokakkar. Once when Prithviraj Kapur came to Kolhapur, he got introduced to his father and they became thick friends.

Prithviraj took his father’s family to Bombay and he became the official medical officer of Prithvi theatres. Jai worked in the dance troupe of dancer Hema Kasargod and travelled all over India. When Shankar- Jaikishen became independent composers, their vacancy in Prithvi Theatres was filled up by Jai Kumar as a Harmonium player. Dattaram was his friend and Jai assisted him in almost all of his films. For many years he worked as assistant to kalyanji-Anand ji. Though Laxmikant-pyarelal were their arrangers, K-A kept Jai kumar as their assistant. He prepared the background music of many films of K-A.

Lata Mangeshkar also stayed in the same building (Shankarshet mansion) where jai Kumar lived in Bombay. Due to her encouragement he learned western instruments from V.Balsaraand became an expert in Chords. Kalyanji called him ” The king of Chords “. jai Kumar worked as assistant to Usha Khanna and as an arranger with Sardar Malik, Avinash Vyas, Iqbal Qureshi, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Yeshawant Deo, Mahesh-Naresh and Shridhar Phadke. Playing Chords with Chromatic scales and in Whampine systems, he was an acclaimed expert.

He was keen on becoming a Music director. Finally, he gave music to Bhagwan Parshuram-1970 for the first time. Then came Putlibai-1972, Jaan Hajir hai-1975 and finally gawah-1979. He gave music to just 1 Marathi film-Mangalsutra-1968. Jaikumar Parte was more or less like an introvert in his temperament. He never asked anybody for work. He used to feel insulted frequently due to perhaps his complex as he was not a successful music Director.

He started sitting at home without canvassing for work and work never came to him. He went the usual way and finally breathed his last on 9-4-1981 at the age of just 48. His son Tushar works as a lead Guitarist and an arranger in Hindi films. (adapted from Marathi Sangeetkar Kosh and Rahe na Rahe hum, with thanks.)

In this film actor Niranjan Sharma played the role of Sahasrabahu. he was an actor, director, story writer, a dialogue writer and even a lyricist. He started his career with film pandav kaurav-1933 as a story writer and film Sach hai-1939 as a dialogue writer. His first film as an actor was Sawaal-1943-a film which he directed also. in all he acted in 129 films, most of which were mythologicals and B grade films. Before film Bhagwan Parshuram was released he died due to heart attack. He is credited in this film as (Late) Niranjan Sharma. 2 more films were released after his death, in which he played roles.

His daughter Gayatri’s role was played by Jayashree Gadkar- a well known and famous Marathi actress. Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s. Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heroines in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema. Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye Aika (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan). Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes)

Today’s song is sung by Mukesh. This is the second song from this film to feature here. This second song from the movie appears in the blog 11 years (3948 days)after the first song appeared in the blog on 28 november 2011.

Blog Day :

5141 Post No. : 17102 Movie Count :

Today (15 August 2022) is the 76th Independence day for India.So India has completed 75 years of independence. I have seen 60 Independence days. It is the 15th Independence day for the blog. This constitutes a nice 5:4:1 ratio.

Only 15 years had passed since independence when I was born. The country was still ruled by its first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) and first President (Dr Rajendra Prasad). The country was still trying to find its feet. When I look back at the situation of India those days, India was in as bad shape as the most underdeveloped countries in Africa. The literacy rate was abysmal. Life expectancy was 32 years.

Here I present some important indices that India had in 1947. I have also provided figures for the same indices in 1962, 2008 and 2022. The change in values over the years have been quite remarkable.

Life expectancy in india in years
1947 1962 2008 2022
32 42 66 70

We can see that the life expectancy in India has become more than doubled from 32 years to 70 years.

Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
218 157 49 27

Infant mortality rate was quite alarming till a few decades ago. The figure of 27 deaths per 1000 live births is still unsatisfactory but it is a vast improvement from the figure of 1947.

Maternal mortality rate (per 100000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
2000 1000 212 103

The Maternal mortality rate had improved by nearly 20 times in 75 years.

Literacy rate in India in %
1947 1962 2008 2022
12 % 29 % 70 % 77%

India was among the most illiterate nations on earth. Today Indian literacy rate is quite high and that has enabled India to take rapid strides in economic activities that require skilled manpower, viz service sector and manufacturing sector.

Population of India in crores
1947 1962 2008 2022
34 cr 47 cr 121 cr 140 cr

Indian population had quadrupled in 75 years.

Human Development Index
1947 1962 2008 2022
NA NA 0.563 0.645

Human development index was devised in 1990. It consists of indices of health, education and standard of living. As health, education and standard of living improves, so does HDI.

Agriculture production in Million tonnes
1947 1962 2008 2022
50 Million Tonnes (50 % of GDP) 71 Million tonnes 216 million tonnes 316 Million tonnes (17%)

Population has quadrupled whereas food grain production had increased more than six times. It had happened while agriculture sector is now contributing less than 20 % of GDP,  while it was over 50 % of GDP in 1947.

GDP in billion $
1947 1962 2008 2022
24 42 1200 3200

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

GDP per capita in $
1947 1962 2008 2022
70 90 1000 2277

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

One can notice that India, despite its problems, including wrong policy decisions and adverse geo political circumstances, has come up a long way in last 75 years. Now India seems poised to take its rightful place among the nations of the world. It is a matter of time (three decades in my estimate) before India will join the list of advanced nations of the world.

There are lots of things that can be mentioned here, but the above tables give us clear idea about the progress that India has made in various areas.

On this occasion, here is a song from an unreleased movie called ‘Aaj Watan Ne Hamen Pukaara’ (1970). The movie was made under the banner of Sangam Productions, Bombay. That is all the information that is known about this movie.

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohinder Kaur.

Lyrics of this rare song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 76th independence day.

Blog Day :

5004 Post No. : 16904

Today’s song is from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Suhaana Safar’.

Many of my articles are prompted when my memory gets triggered while listeneing to (or thinking about) songs of movies that I watched long ago.

Today’s post is one such post.

I was travelling to pick up my elder daughter from her new working place which is around 150 kms from Vadodara ( a journey of around two hours and forty-five minutes long). I was travelling to bring her back home for ‘holi’ vacation and her marriage vacation 🙂 (her marriage is scheduled this week). 🙂

I was travelling in the afternoon. When I switched on to ‘vividh bharati’ on 93.9FM’ I got to listen to this program ‘kuchh baatein kuchh geet’. It is a ‘theme’ based program where the audience also share their thoughts related to the theme and request for songs of their choice according to the theme.

During this program I got to listen to this song ‘aha aha aa ye suhaana safar’ (as the theme for that day of 17th March 2022 was ‘suhaana’ or ‘suhawnaapan’ etc.

I liked this song very much. It brought back memories of watching this movie when I must be around seven-eight years old. This movie was screened at the weekly screening of movies at the colony club where we then resided.

Though I do not remember this movie now, but this song is permanently embedded on my mind. I had shared this song as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog.

I must be between two-three years old when this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ had released. Recently I came across many movies of ‘end-sixties’ or from the years – 1968 to 1971 where songs from some of the movies are part of my nostalgia of those years.

I am sure some songs may be getting embedded on my impressionable mind then where the elders must have carried me to movies they watched or some songs were played frequently on the radio, when I was growing, and thus they become part of my vague memories.

I had earlier attempted to list down the songs which makes me feel nostalgic and those songs which bring back old memories, in this post.

I am thinking to revisit movies in chronological order -from the year of my birth i.e. 1968 to 1983-85 when I become a grown up boy and had completed my 10+2 education. I am sure this will be an interesting ‘journey’. But that is a part of another ‘series’ 🙂 of posts.

Coming back to the today’s post now …

When I reached back to my ‘base station’’ I browsed the blog and noted that this movie ‘Suhaana Safar’ is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. On checking the remaining two songs I find the song under discussion more suitable for today’s presentation as the song is happening on a ‘marriage function’ in the movie.

“Suhaana Safar -1970” was directed by Vijay for ‘Century Films, Bombay’.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, David, Manmohan Krishna, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan, K.N. Singh, Tiwari, Sunder, Randhir, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Sherry, and others.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Five songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog as given below.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This vigorous dance song is lip synced by Jayshree T. She has given an energetic and enthusiastic performance in this song which is highly enjoyable to watch.

Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Shashi Kapoor and many other male-female artists.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and say ‘Yippeeee’ to this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ on the blog.

(When I had already noted the lyrics of this song and noting the date of the earlier posts, I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 08.03.2022. And as usual lyrics of the remaining two songs from this movie were also sent by our dear Prakash ji for that day.)

In Memory of Mahatma Gandhi – the father of the nation.
——————————————————————-

Eknath Easwaran writes in the preface of a book:

“In India, Mahatma Gandhi is officially Father of the Nation. Under his leadership India attained freedom from the British Empire through a 30-year campaign based on complete non-violence that ended with both sides allied in respect and friendship. That alone will secure his place in the history books, but not necessarily his place in a series of the world’s spiritual classics.”

He says further:
“One of the first lessons Gandhi learned in South Africa was to begin by bringing people together onto higher ground. India was exploitable because it exploited our own people. We were weak because we were divided into innumerable factions, each seeking its own gain, making it simple to play us against each other – an old Roman empire tactic practiced by the East India Company and made official imperial policy after the mutiny (1857). His analysis made perfect sense, once grasped, but it wasn’t a matter of politics to Gandhi. It was the obvious corollary of the unity of life, in which the welfare of all of us together was bound up with those whom the poet Rabindranath Tagore called “the lowest, the lowliest, and the lost.”

Those ideas sound conventional enough today, but to put them into proactive is always a shock. In India they caused an earthquake. By linking independence with the way, we treated one another, Gandhi shook the country from top to bottom. Gandhi made a cornerstone of his campaign for national freedom the freedom of those whom the rest of India called “untouchable”. He campaigned for them from the Himalayas to India’s southernmost tip.

Everywhere he told us that all of us were one and that we would never have the unity to throw off foreign rule, or even be worthy of self-government, until we ceased exploiting our own people……..It was an impossible appeal because it attacked ways of thinking ground deep into unconscious conditioning for countless generations. Yet people all over India responded……..The man had to walk! And with equal joy and amazement India rose too.

These are some of the quotes of Mahatma Gandhi’s various writings and editorials:
“For me patriotism is the same as humanity. I am patriot because I am human and humane. It is not exclusive. I will not hurt England or Germany to serve India……The law of the patriot is not different from the law of the patriarch. And a patriot is so much a patriot, if he is a lukewarm humanitarian. There is no conflict between private and political law. A non-cooperator, for instance, would act exactly in the same manner towards his father or brother as he is today acting towards the (British) Government.” – Young India, March 16, 1921.

“Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” – Young India, January 8, 1925.

“A man is but a product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.” – Ethical religion.

This song I am presenting is from an unreleased movie titled “Bapu ka Sapna”. The song is not really talking about Mahatma Gandhi, but pays tribute to his philosophy in the beginning, with these lines:

Eeshwar Allah tero naam
Sab ko sanmati de bhagwaan

This is the only song recorded for this film, as per the list on myswar.com. There is an interesting story about how found this song. Today 30th January is also the 93rd birthday of an actor of repute in hindi and Marathi films, theatre and TV, Ramesh Deo. When I saw his name in the anniversary page, I remembered a video the a Rafi song filmed on Ramesh Deo in a black in a white film. I had seen it a few days ago and thought I had saved the details somewhere. I started looking for it but could not find it. I searched for the song on youtube, but found another song in colour, a duet of Rafi sahab and Usha Mangeshkar. Then I looked for the imdb page on him for his filmography (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0219946/) , where I found this film “Bapu ka sapna”.
January 30 is also 74th anniversary of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, I decided to post this song from the film, that was starred Ramesh Deo, but never released. For Ramesh Deo, this birthday post had appeared in 2018.

(Kaun sachcha hai kaun jhoothha hai).
Ramesh Deo was commonly seen in movies of 70’s and 80’s with his wife Seema Deo, in character roles. Notable film I remember is ‘Anand’.

I found these posts which are posted in the blog on the occasion of his death anniversary:

Kahaa raam hey raam
Mohandas Karanchand Gandhi para pujaari ahinsa ke
Jai bolo Mahatma Gandhi ki
Suno suno ae duniyaawaalon

There are many more posts celebrating October 2nd as Gandhi ji’s birth anniversary, but I find that the death anniversary posts have ceased after 2015. No matter, this can soon be rectified.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. says, “Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress. Gandhi is inescapable…….we may ignore him at our own risk.”
Mahatma Gandhi returned to India in 1915, after having spent 20 years in South Africa, spearheading civil right movements there. Having gone to Britain to study law as a young man, returned to India to practice law and shifted to South Africa to practice law, but turned into a civil activist, fighting for the human rights of native Indians there, the experience and exposure to varied issues of humans was instrumental in shaping the man and his intellectual abilities.
What use is the higher education, or the study in the world’s best universities, if one is not able to make use of the advantages it gives, the broadening of mental horizons it entails, to have a true arial view of the issues at hand. Arial view, as in watching a scene, as not a part of the scene, but from the outside.
People of my generation can only imagine, those times, when Gandhi ji was assassinated, so soon after the independence and partition of the cohesive entity that the United State of India, was becoming. From all accounts Gandhi ji was opposed to the partition of the country, and surprisingly, he was not assassinated before 15th August 1947. He is said to have eventually agreed to the partition but his disillusionment with the other leaders is well known. And it is not surprising that he opposed the partition, as it is the very antithesis of his philosophy of unity of ‘highest with the lowest’. The have’s and the have not’s, in other words. I also think, that the visionary in him, is bound have expected this to happen. That a colonial power, having seen the dare-devilry and bravery of all those who opposed their colonisation, and made them struggle for 2 long years, in attaining control of the various kingdoms and states, the cultural and spiritual power of an ancient civilization, with rich natural and human resources, the intellectual power (that the visionaries of united India, could see as a future super power, not just a soft power), were never going to leave the sub-continent intact. They had vast experiences in destroying the united forces, and they toiled for full 5 years, to dismantle ‘the ottoman empire’ brick by brick, brick by brick. The writings were on the wall, and Gandhi could do nothing to stop it. But eventually, paid the price for his high ideals with his life.
And today, the same world powers are hunting for a new ‘theatre of war’, to sell their arms and ammunitions which can revive their fledging economies. Big economies, liberalised one’s are relatively safe, as they can’t be put to flames in a war. So, our visionary economists have done well to liberalise the Indian economy in the 90’s.
It is never the time to not remember and remind ourselves of the gandhian principles of non-violence and non-violent solutions. I had heard some predictions that 3rd world war is going to be for ‘water’ and 4th one will be fought for parking. This joke apart, the wars are still over power, money, money power and power money.
Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy and his preaching of non-violence methods of struggle, have gone on to be emulated in various freedom and civil rights movements the world over. I have seen Richard Attenborough’s ‘Gandhi’(1982), where Ben Kingsley played the role of Mahatma Gandhi and won an Oscar for his efforts. I agree with those people, who thought that future generations, will be seeing Ben Kingsley’s movie stills and think that this is the real Gandhi.
In just over 30 years, of Mahatma Gandhi’s involvement in the freedom struggle, he has to his credit, many successful movements. Non-cooperation movement, the swadeshi movement, dandi march, the jail bharo movement are notable in this struggle. Sustaining such a movement for this long in a country full of poor people, is no small task. It required great leadership and mobilization of collective imagination. They imagined ‘swaraj’ and freedom, so they believed in it and achieved it. It is the full truth that every movement and revolutions start in the mind. That is exactly the reason he is hailed as among the greatest of leaders in human history.
I consider it prudent to repeat what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said about Gandhi:
“Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress. Gandhi is inescapable…….we may ignore him at our own risk.”

Okay, I have said enough. So, we move on to the rare song from ‘Bapu ka Sapna’. The singers are Mukesh, Hemlata accompanied by chorus. Lyrics are by Taajdar Taj and Ratandeep-Hemraj are the composers.

Song Date of post Singer(s)
Maine ek ladki pasand kar li 30 August 2008 Rafi
Teri haseen nigaah ka ehsaanmand hoon 4 January 2012 Rafi-Lata

As “blog Ten Year Challenge” today (4 January 2022), here is a song from “Devi”(1970). The song is sung by Rafi and a kid voice, credited as a kid who would later be known as Baba Sahgal.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Baby Sarika. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics

duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega aa aa
yeah

duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega
insaan ke iraadon ke aage
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega

hum apni lagan ke deewaane
toofaan se bhi takra jaayenge
ab jhuk na sakenge ae duniya
hum toot bhale hi jaayenge
ho ho ho o
o o o o
jeevan ki dagar ka har parwat
ik thokar mein uad jaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega
yeah

samjho na hamen tum patthar dil
seene mein hamaare pyaar bhi hai
naaz kisi kisi ki yaad bhi hai
ik sapnon ka sansar bhi hai
aa ha ha ha
aa aa aa aa
jo kuchh bhi haseen hai is jag mein
kuchh aur haseen kahlayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega

har har bandhan ko tod ke jab
ik jashn manaayegi duniya
taaron ke singhaashan par jis din
insaan ko dikhaayegi duniya
ho ho ho
o o o o o
us din sabko rah rah ke mera
ye geet bahut yaad aayega
insaan ke iraadon ke aage
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega

Hullo Atuldom

Navratri. Nine nights of festivities. Celebrated through the country in honour of Devi Maa, Maa Durga, or the Holy Trinity of Durga Lakshmi Saraswati. Also Rama’s victory over Ravana and rescuing Devi Seeta from Lanka. No wonder the 10th day of the festival is called Vijaya Dashami.
I have got a Whatsapp forward which gives a perspective of the day as ” Dussehra is a Sanskrit word which means removal of Ten Bad Qualities within oneself, namely
Ahankara (Ego),
Amanavta (Cruelty),
Anyaaya (Injustice),
Kama vasana (Lust),
Krodha (Anger),
Lobha (Greed),
Mada (Pride),
Matsara (Jealousy can also mean competition which is a result of jealousy),
Moha (attachment),
Swartha (Selfishness)”;

which means that ‘Vijaya over these Ten Bad Qualities. (I thought that this was a great thought and hence shared it here)

Dussehra marks the culmination of the Ram Leela, at various venues across the country, with the burning of the effigies of Meghnad (son of Ravana), Kumbhakarna (brother of Ravana) and Ravana himself. Dussehra is also the last day of the Durga Puja for the people from Eastern India (wherever in the world they be). The Durga Puja begins on the sixth day of Navartri, when the idols of the goddess is installed along with those of her children Ganesh and Kartik and Devi Laxmi and Devi Saraswati. Dussehra is the day when the idols are immersed in the holy waters of the rivers after morning puja, kumkum khela etc. Festivities in western India too come to a close with all the rituals associated. So we are at the end of one festival waiting for the next -Deepavali.

Let us bring this festival to a close with this all important aarthi which is from “Purab Aur Paschim” (yes, there are some songs from this film yet to be posted). In the film this traditional aarthi plays at the start to set the story of the movie in motion. It shows Ashok Kumar (whose birth anniversary it was two days ago) leading a group of devotees which includes Kamini Kaushal and Nirupa Roy (13th October was her death anniversary). As the song plays, we see the Union Jack being lowered and replaced by the Indian Tricolour. The movie too becomes ‘color’ from ‘black-n-white’. The aarthi is also used to introduce almost all the characters of the movie, we see ‘Bharat’ growing up from Master Alankar to Manoj Kumar and Bharathi (south Indian actress) growing into ‘Gopi’. The movie closes with the aarthi as Saira Banu accepts that she has liked the Indian way of life and her mother Shammi and brother Rajendranath also join the aarthi.

The aarthi is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor, Brij Bhushan and Shyama Chittar. The music director for the movie were Kalyanji Anandji, who have stuck to the traditional format in here.

Happy Bijoya/ Vijaya Dashami to one and all.
