Hullo Atulwaasis

I know many followers of this blog are also fans of cricket. I am sure many have their favourite cricket commentators. I will not say Sunil Gavaskar is my favourite commentator but yes, I remember many points that he has made over the years in his commentary. Specially in the period when he had just taken to commentary after his stint as a successful cricketer. This is a point he has made regularly, it can be taken as his advice to young cricketers. He has said and I quote: “always try to reach your milestone run of 50 or 100 with a four or two, never a single.”

He gives an explanation to support this thought “it covers for any short run, or any run which the batsman has scored which has inadvertently been credited to extras.” He further used to advice that in case it was a single that took you to 50 or 100 then it is always good to follow it up with a single or two to cover up for inadvertent wrong markings. It seems this was the advice his coach gave him. It makes sense but must have been true for the age and time when computers had not yet stepped in and replaced manual score cards.

Why did I start my post with the above thoughts? Is today’s post of mine cricket based? No! it is just my first single after my double hundred. I remember I had waited for about six balls oops! 😉 days after my first hundred to write a post or find an occasion to write. But this time around I have found the perfect ball (occasion) to hit a defensive stroke needed for a quick single.

Today our dear Golden Zulfonwali turns a year older. She used to say her name was “Chin Chin Chu” asked us to live life whole heartedly as “Kitty Kelly”. And I hope we have not run out of songs picturised on her considering we have 237 of her songs on the blog already. She must be the only female actor whose songs we have as a separate category on our blog.

Oh yes, I am talking of Helen Khan a.k.a Helen Ann Richardson meaning our very own Helen. She has always had a special place in the hearts of cine-lovers. I have heard people relate how at one time distributors used to force producers and directors to insert a situation so that a dance by Helen could be included in the movie. Also costume designers have related how she used to patiently wait when they used to stitch her various outfits on her body and how she had developed a habit of picking up accessories like hats, feathers, stoles and furs etc on her various trips, things which she later used on her costumes. She has acted in about 700 movies (not sure of the exact number). I have seen her in two Tamil songs too- one with Shivaji Ganesan and other with Rajnikanth in “Billa” (a remake of ‘Don’) where she had the role of Kamini as in the original “Don”

Wishing our darling Helen, a very healthy semi-retired life. I say semi-retired as she makes an appearance on-screen once every few years when she finds roles appropriate to her age. She has danced in a few of them too. Today we have song from the time when she was at her peak. It is a dance where her outfit has fruits stuck in them. Then she has the top of a lampshade for a cap. the song shows her enjoying herself. It is a song where Radha Saluja fantasises that her husband Kiran Kumar is being willingly seduced by Helen in the 1973 film ‘Aaj Ki Tazaa Khabar’. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, written by Hasrat Jaipuri and music is by Shankar Jaikishan.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday dear Helen.

This is the 13700th post for the blog and 1000th post as a lyricist for Rajinder Krishan

Century posts in this blog are quite frequent. There have been 136 such centuries already as far songs in the blog are concerned. We also have centuries by artists (quite frequent) as well as by contributors (a bit less frequent).

Thousandth post, whether they are for the blog, or the artists or the contributors are quite rare though. There have been only 13 such occasions for the blog. Only five artists and two contributors have completed their set of thousand posts in the blog.

This post today happens to be the 137th century post of songs. It also happens to be the 1000th song of Rajinder Krishan as a lyricist in the blog. He becomes the sixth artist (after Lata, Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Majrooh Sultanpuri), and second lyricist (after Majrooh Sb) to notch up his 1000th song in the blog. Regulars may recall that the previous century milestone had doubled up as the thousandth post for Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Though Rajinder Krishan is somehow not as well known as many other of his contemporary lyricists, his contributions in enriching HFM is top notch, in quality as well as quantity. He was not just a lyricist, but also a screenplay writer and more. He was a complete package and he was a man who was much sought after for his multifarious talents. He was in fact ahead of the times he lived in.

It is customary for us to discuss the biodata of the artist, and recall some of the well known songs of the artist on such occasions. I have decided to do something additional, which may not have been done in depth before, at least online, and that is to discuss the statistics of songs penned b y Rajinder Krishan.

I have compiled a moviewise list of songs that Rajinder Krishan penned during his nearly five decades long career. He career as a lyricist began in 1947 with ‘Janta’ and ‘Zanjeer’ and his last movie as a lyricist was ‘Pati Parmeshwar’ which came in 1989 after his death. I have been able to count 243 movies for which Rajinder Krishan has penned thr lyrics. In total, he has penned just over 1500 songs in these movies. So, after this song under discussion, we will have just over 500 of his songs left to be discussed. In other words, we have already covered 2/3 rd of the songs that Rajinder Krishan has penned in HFM.

When I analysed the list of music directors that Rajinder Krishan had worked with, I found that he has worked with just under 40 music directors. He worked with Madan Mohan in 36 movies where he wrote 280 songs. 25 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog. He collaborated eith C Ramchandra in 32 movies and 279 songs. I find that “only” 9 of these movies are YIPPEED in the blog. So lots of C Ramchandra movies where he collaborated with Rajinder Krishan are yet to be YIPPEED in the blog.

One can see that more than one third of Rajinder Krishan songs were with just two music directors. Rajinder Krishan also collaborated in more that 100 songs each with Ravi (135 songs in 20 movies), Kalyanji Anandji (118 songs in 23 movies), Hemant Kumar (111 songs in 13 movies) and Chitragupta (102 songs in 13 movies).

So we see that he has penned two thirds of his output, viz. 1026 songs in 137 movies with just six music directors.

Then there are seven music directors who collaborated with Rajinder Krishan for songs whose number range between 20 to 99. Rajinder Krishan penned 324 songs for these 7 music directors. They were Laxmikant Pyarelal (96 songs in 18 movies), Shankar Jaikishan (62 songs in 16 movies), S D Burman (43 songs in 5 movies), Husnlal Bhagatram (40 songs in 8 movies), R D Burman (32 songs in 5 movies), Shyam Sundar (28 songs in 4 movies) and Roshan (23 songs in 3 movies).

There were eight music directors whose collaboration with Rajinder Krishan yielded between 10 to 20 songs each, and their total adds up to 125 songs from 23 movies. They are Anil Biswas (19 songs from 5 movies), Hansraj Bahl (18 songs from 4 movies), Iqbal Qureshi (18 songs from two movies), Bulo C Rani (17 songs from 3 movies), N Datta (13 songs from 2 movies), Sajjad Hussain (11 songs from two movies) and Usha Khanna (11 songs from 2 movies).

Then there were 15 more music directors whose collaboration with Rajinder Krishan led to less that ten songs each. These songs add up to just over 60 songs. These music directors are Rajesh Roshan, Anand Milind, Krishan Dayal, Dhaniram, Pt Lachchiram, Anu Malik, Sonik Omi, Ghanshyam, K Datta, Jaidev, Gyan Dutt, Pankaj Mullick, Harishchandra Bali, Shiv Hari and S Mohinder.

So overall, Rajinder Krishan penned just over 1500 songs during his career in just under 250 movies. 104 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog, so we now only need to look at the remaining 140 odd movies for the remaining 500 odd Rajinder Krishan songs.

Rajinder Krishan was not just a lyricist, though. He was a screenplay writer and story writer as well. Then he was something more that that but Film Industry does have any designation for those activities.

It is like this. South Indian producers made some South Indian movies that were big hits among their target audiences. They planned to enter into the territory of Hindi movie audiences, remaking their hit movies into Hindi. It is obvious that the South Indian movies needed to be modified suitably to cater to the pan Indian tastes of Hindi movie audiences. How to do that ?

They looked for people in Hindi movie industry who would be receptive to their ideas. That is where Rajinder Krishan came in. As someone who was far ahead of the times, Rajinder Krishan was a polyglot and he had taught himself Tamil. So south Indian film makers, especially the makers of AVM found it extremely convenient to deal with him. Rajinder Krishan would watch the Tamil original, make suitable changes in the story line for its Hindi remake, and then write the Hindi screenplay. And then he would write the songs for the Hindi version as well. What more did the South Indian makers need ? They needed disciplined actors and music directors of Hindi movies who could work within tight time frame, unlike what was the norm in Bombay Film Industry. That is how disciplined actors like Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar etc and disciplined music directors like C Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Chitragupta and Ravi became the favourites of South Indian movie makers making Hindi remakes of their South Indian movies. And all these movies would have lyrics by Rajinder Krishan most of the time.

As mentioned above, bulk of Rajinder Krishan songs have been penned for the above mentioned music directors. So it can be concluded accurately that Rajinder Krishan and these music directors gave a sizeable part of their output in movies that were remakes of South Indian movies. So it can also be concluded that they in general and Rajinder Krishan in particular contributed a lot in making South Indian remakes of Hindi movies acceptable to Hindi movie audience.

The first South Indian Hindi movie that Rajinder Krishan was associated with was AVM’s ‘Bahaar’ (1951). A remake of blockbuster Tamil movie ‘Vazhkai’ (1949), its Hindi remake was overseen by Rajinder Krishan who wrote the screenplay of ‘Bahaar’ (1951) and penned songs that were suitably tailored for Hindi audience. The songs, composed by SD Burman were huge hits as music lovers are already aware.

The other thing that I find impressive about Rajinder Krishan is that he was comfortable and competent penning songs for each and every genre that Hindi movies could come up with. Just think of the genres and the kinds of songs that Rajinder Krishan could come up with:

Dev Anand style introduction song Hamaara naam banarasi baabu (Banarasi Babu)

The above is just a sample of what Rajinder Krishan has penned in HFM. So many genre of songs. So many great songs that are iconic/ evergreen/ memorable. Some of them have even defined/ determined/changed the course of HFM.

Rajinder Krishan did not need too much time to come up with his songs. Many of his songs were written in a matter of minutes. it is something that he shared with C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan, who too couldi come up with their tunes in double quick times. No wonder then that they were able to stick to tight schedules that south Indian film makers often demanded.

After twitter like articles that I normally write these days, people may find this article rather wikipedean in comparison. Let me assure my readers that this article gives far more details about Rajinder Krishan’s songs than what the wikipedia page on Rajinder Krishan provides. 🙂

For the 1000th song of Rajinder Krishan, I have picked a rare gem from a rare movie. No, it is not a movie from 1940s or 1950s. Rather this movie is from 1973, which is a “recent” year by the standards of this blog. I was very much into HFM in 1973 but even I had never heard this song at that time. The movie is called ‘Kunwara Badan’ (1973). I had vaguely heard the title of this movie but that was all.

On checkingup in HFGK, I find that this movie was directed by Vimal Tiwari for Tulsi Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rakesh Pandey, Madhu Chanda, Suresh Chatwal, Aashoo, Paintal, Helen, Sudhir Desai, Mushtaq Merchant, Surendranath, Aparna Chaudhary, Baby Vinaya, Pushpa Ben, Yagnik, Ambalal Patel, Narsibhai Patel, Devyani Desai, Jagdish Patel Nishaad Pandya, Baby Shahnaz, Sulekha Patel, nalini Pandya, Vandana Mehta, Maya Pandya, Iva Maria etc in it.

In brief, this movie was a low budget movie containing small time actors who were newcomers. With no saleable actors, this movie suffered the usual fate of such movies and it flopped badly. so much so that someone like me never got to hear any songs from this movie till now.

This movie has four songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. It is picturised as a car song on Rakesh Pandey who is seen driving the car along famous landmarks in DelhiVadodara.

This song is penned by Rajinder Krishan, and this song is fitting 1000th song for him in the blog. The music is composed by someone called Ghanshyam. Little is known about him. He makes his debut in the blog as a music director with this song. And what a smashing debut it is.

If you listens to this song, you will find this song growing up on you. That is what has happened to me now that I have heard this song a few times.

The audio and video versions are three stanzaes each, but the final stanzas differ. So overall this song has four stanzas, but one needs to listen to both versions of the song to get to the fourth stanza.

Like always, I take this opportunity to thank one and all. It is the encouragement and support of all our visitors, well wishers and contributors that we keep coming up with “new” songs daily and we keep reaching newer milestones every now and them.

This is the 13700th song for the blog and 1000th song for Rajinder Krishan. We have many more centuries and more waiting in the wings. So I can assure everyone that our best in this ongoing journey is yet to come.

For now, let us enjoy this forgotten gem from 1970s.

Song-Kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden (Kunwaara Badan)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ghanshyam

Lyrics

(Based on Audio Version)

kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

ye raahen
jahaan se main guzra hoon kitni baar
hawaayen fizaayen
ke jin mein basa hai pyaar
jaane pehchaane in raahon ki dhool
dhool aisi dhool jo khilaaye sada phool
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

wo dekho
udhar se chali aa rahi hai ik haseena
hai shokhi kuchh aisi
ki phoolon ko aaya paseena
doobi huyi mastiyon mein morni si chaal
chaal aisi chaal
jo udaati hai gulaal
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuchh bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar
laut aayi hai
phir se wahi bahaar

(Different 2nd Stanza from Video Version)
ye chehre ye aankhen
ye aankhon se jhaankti khushi
nigaahen nigaahon mein dil ki hai baat chhupi chhupi
main jaanta hoon jaanta hoon inki zubaan
ye poochhti hain
chhod ke gaye the kahaan
kuchh bhooli huyi yaaden
kuch bisre huye afsaane
aane lage aise yaad
jaise kal ki ho baat
laut aayi hai phir se wahi bahaar
laut aayi hai phir se wahi bahaar
la la la la
lalla la lallaa la la

(ऑडियो संस्करण से)
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

ये राहें
जहां से मैं गुज़रा हूँ कितनी बार
हवाएं फिजाएं
के जिनमें बसा है प्यार
जाने पहचाने इन राहों कि धूल
धूल ऐसी धूल  जो खिलाये सदा फूल
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

वो देखो
उधर से चली आ रही है इक हसीना
है शोखी कुछ ऐसी
कि फूलों को आया पसीना
डूबी हुयी मस्तियों में मोरनी सी चाल
चाल ऐसी चाल
जो उड़ाती है गुलाल
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार

(भिन्न दूसरा अंतरा विडियो संस्करण से)
ये चेहरे ये आँखें
ये आँखों से झांकती ख़ुशी
निगाहें
निगाहों में दिल कि है बात छुपी छुपी
मैं जानता हूँ जानता हूँ इनकी ज़ुबां
ये पूछती हैं छोड़ के गए थे कहाँ
कुछ भूली हुयी यादें
कुछ बिसरे हुए अफ़साने
आने लगे ऐसे याद
जैसे कल कि हो बात
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार
लौट आयी है
फिर से वही बहार
ला ला ला ला
लल्ला ला लल्ला ला ला

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्

Touch the Sky with Glory

What an appropriate motto this is, for the flying heroes of our national force that is responsible for the defense of our nation’s skies, and the keepers of our aerial security. The Indian Air Force, the aerial arm of our armed forces, celebrated its 85 anniversary yesterday – 8th October, 2017.

War is never a good thing. No one wins in a war. Everyone loses. Behind the victories claimed by the conquerors, there always are brutal losses which one does not speak of. But then, if a war is thrust upon someone, then standing up and fighting for what is right is the inevitable path to be taken.  The lines written by Kaifi Azmi in this song, express this so well,

jung rahmat hai ke laanat, ye sawaal ab na uthe
jung jab aa hi gayi sar pe to rahmat hogi

जंग रहमत है के लानत, ये सवाल अब ना उठे
जंग जब आ ही गई सर पे तो रहमत होगी

This post is a salute to the fearless warriors of our armed forces, and especially our Air Force, on this day of celebrating its 85 years of history.

The origins of the Indian Air Force are in the Royal Air Force of Great Britain. India was under the British rule in 1932, when the decision was taken to set up an auxiliary air force unit in India, under the larger umbrella of the Royal Air Force.

In 1928-29 the Government of India (under British rule) decided to induct some Indians in the Royal Air Force. The first six Indians selected to undergo two years of flying training at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell were Subroto Mukherjee, Harish Chandra Sircar, Aizad Baksh Awan, Bhupendra Singh, Amarjeet Singh and JN Tandon. After completing their training at Cranwell, the Indian pilots passed through the Army Cooperation School at Old Sarum in Wiltshire. After the completion of their training, five of these men were commissioned into service with the Royal Air Force. JN Tandon, on account of his short stature, was reverted to a logistic role, and not commissioned for flying.

On 8th October, 1932, the Indian Air Force Act was passed by the Indian Legislative Assembly, and the Indian Air Force was born. The Indian Air Force was established as an auxiliary air force of the Royal Air Force. The new force adopted the uniforms, badges, brevets and insignia of the Royal Air Force.

The first five pilots commissioned into the IAF were the same five who had been inducted into the Royal Air Force after completing their training at RAF Cranwell – Harish Chandra Sircar, Subroto Mukerjee, Bhupendra Singh, Aizad Baksh Awan and Amarjeet Singh. All of them were commissioned as Pilot Officers. Subroto Mukerjee later went on to become the IAF’s first Indian Chief of the Air Staff.

On 1 April 1933, the Indian Air Force got its first flying machines – four Westland Wapiti biplanes. The IAF commissioned its first squadron, No. 1 Squadron, at Karachi (now in Pakistan) with five Indian pilots listed above. The Indian pilots were led by RAF Commanding officer Flight Lieutenant (later Air Vice Marshal) Cecil Bouchier.

Subsequent batches inducted before World War II included Aspy Engineer, KK Majumdar, Narendra, Daljit Singh, Henry Runganadhan, RHD Singh, Baba Mehar Singh, SN Goyal, Prithpal Singh and Arjan Singh. Here is another name that is very familiar to all – Arjan Singh went on to become the first and only Air Chief designated as the Marshal of the Air Force (MAF). He is the only five star officer in the history of our Air Force. MAF Arjan Singh recently passed away (16th September, 2017) in Delhi, at the age of 98.

In recognition of the services rendered by the IAF during the World War II, King George VI conferred the prefix “Royal” in 1945. Thereafter the IAF was referred to as Royal Indian Air Force. In 1947, when the British left the Indian sub-continent, and the partition of this country happened the military forces were also partitioned. On 15th August, 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force gave up 3 divisions which were geographically based in the newly formed territories of Pakistan, and the Royal Pakistan Air Force was born.

Although the nation supposedly attained independence on 15th Aug, 1947, it continued to be a Dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations, which means that we as a nation, were actually still paying our allegiance to the British Crown. In January 1950, when India adopted their own Constitution, and became a republic, the prefix “Royal” was dropped and the force became truly the Indian Air Force. However, the person at the head of the Air Force continued to be a non-Indian till 1954. As per seniority and age, the Air Force continued with three more Air Chief Marshals from 1947 to 1954. In 1954, the last of the Birtish chiefs superannuated from the top position, and the mantle of the top official came to Air Marshal Subroto Mukherjee, the first Indian head of the Indian Air Force.

The IAF has seen serious action in the four wars that have been fought with Pakistan (1948, 1965, 1971 and 1999). The force was not utilized during the 1962 conflict with China, despite being the superior air power in the region at that time. China’s forays into the Himalayan regions were recent at that time and their air force did not have the reach to come up to the Indo-China borders. A lack of political will and vision, one may say, and the IAF was utilized only for supplying the front lines.

Although a child (in single digits) at that time, my memories of the 1965 war are still quite detailed. The Pakistan Air Force was supposedly the superior force, equipped with American supplied F-86 Sabre jets, with the Indian Air Force flying the comparatively puny Gnat and Mystere aircrafts. But the valor and the heroism of the Indian pilots is now the stuff of a very proud history. The supposedly puny Gnat fighter planes were responsible for downing 6 Sabre jets, and earned the nickname of ‘Sabre Slayers’. Names like Sqadron Leader Keelor (actually two brother flyers – Trevor and Denzill) and Flying Officer Nebb, became household heroes, as the news poured in every day about the victories of the Indian Air Force.

The force was led by Air Marshal Arjan Singh during this period of conflict. Retired and past officers of the Air Force remember him dearly as a valiant leader who led from the front. While the conflict was in progress, the Air Marshal refused to stay put in Delhi, and was constantly visiting the front line airfields, meeting his officers and pilots, each one of them personally. So many of his people have consistently mentioned his reaching out to his men, how he would remember the names of each one of them, how he would be interested in knowing the details of their exploits in the air. And not just that, he reached out personally to the families of the heroes, and taking care to connect with the widowed wives and children of the flyers who laid down their lives in action.

He put the interest and safety of his airmen before his own. Close friend and former Air Chief Marshal NC Suri narrates an episode that underlines this. The Canberra bomber planes, one of the planes with the IAF, had a peculiar design. The pilot’s seat was designed as an ejection seat (that allows the pilot to eject automatically from the aircraft, in case of an emergency). However, the navigator seat was not, and the navigator, in the time of an emergency, had to physically disengage himself from the seat, break open some window and jump out of the aircraft. Whenever Arjan Singh flew a Canberra, he would refuse to take out the safety pin of the pilot seat’s ejection mechanism, rendering it ineffective. In other words, he was also incapable of ejecting from the aircraft, if an emergency arose. ACM NC Suri adds “So here is a man who felt that his navigator was equally important to him, which was very remarkable.”.

Yes, ‘Touch the Sky with Glory’, a motto that MAF Arjan Singh believed in and also lived by. The saga of our nation’s Air Force is full of numerous such people and their acts of valor and heroism.

As a salute to the brave airmen of our Air Force, I present this rousing song of bravery and leadership, from the 1973 film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. Folks will remember this film one of the very few films made on the theme of Indian Air Force, its airmen and their exploits and triumphs. The time frame it was released indicates that it covered the events of the then recent past, i.e. the 1971 war with Pakistan.

The song itself needs no introduction – it has been one of the most popular patriotic songs to emerge from Hindi films. The words are from the pen of Kaifi Azmi, and the rousing marching music comes from the baton of Madan Mohan. The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Manna Dey. In the film, this song appears at 3 places. In the beginning when the titles start to roll, somewhat later once again when the war with the enemy is in full swing, and at the end, as the film comes to a close. Interestingly enough, the titles of the film do no start till almost twelve and a half minutes into the film. (So this song cannot be categorized as the film opening song.)

We see a few characters in the video clip, especially in the first part. There is Rajkumar, Chetan Anand, Balraj Sahni, Veena, Vijay Anand, Priya Rajvansh, Parikshit Sahni etc. I have edited to present all the three parts of this song as a single clip. I have retained a few seconds of the scene just prior to the start of the first part – I really like the dialogue rendered by Rajkumar, just as the song starts.

So here is a salute and a tribute – to the daring ‘jaanbaaz’ flyers and the brave ground and support staff, that man this valiant Air Force – the safe keepers of the Indian airspace.

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्
Jai Hind.

[Ed Note: This song is the fourth and final one from this film to be posted on our blog. With this post, the film ‘Hindustan Ki Qasam’ joins the list of films with all songs posted.]

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
——————————————————————–

Mukesh and His Co-Singers – 3
—————————————-

The thought had crossed my mind a few months back. To calculate the sum of all the posts of contributors and subtract it from the grand total which would have given the obvious number. A number big enough to just admire, thank and congratulate with high gratitude. Thankfully, the pen and paper (and well a calculator) did not meet and so we had Sudhir ji planning his modus-operandi.

Else who knows, I would have written a common mail to both which I usually do and spoiled all the fun.

I got to know of Sudhir ji’s plans which he told me in person when I met him for a short visit to his house. Now wait. Isn’t our meeting a celebration to write a post? Yes indeed, but that shall wait for another day.
