This article is the 17400th song post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17400

That moment is here again with us. The moment when we reach a century of songs in the blog and post a special song to mark the occasion.

What is so special, one may ask. We already have 173 such occasions in the blog.

Indeed we had 173 such occasions and this is the 174th century for the blog.

Still, I find this century somewhat different vis a vis other centuries in general, and with other recent centuries in particular.

If we look at the rate at which we have been clocked our centuries, here is what we observe

Time taken for century Number of occasions Date of First occasion (century number) Date of final occasion (Century number) Remarks
upto twenty days (Fast centuries) 65 5 January 2009 (5th century) 31 January 2015 (108th century) Fastest century in 11 days- 46th century on 9 september 2011)
from 21 to 40 days (Medium Fast centuries) 68 25 November 2008 (3rd century) 21 September 2020 (160th century)
from 41 to 60 days (Slow centuries) 26 5 November 2008 (2nd century) 27 March 2022 (169th century)
from 61 to 80 days (Very Slow centuries) 14 17 September 2008 (1st century) 31 December 2022 (173rd century) Slowest century in 77 days- 170th century on 12 June 2022
Total 173

We can observe that the last time we had a fast century (in 20 days or less) was on 31 January 2015, viz 8 years ago ! Even our last medium fast century (scored between 21 to 40 days) was more than two years ago. In other words, the centuries that we are scoring continuously for more than two years are all slow centuries that are taking between 41 to 77 days.

This century, which is achieved in 28 days becomes the fastest century in the blog since 23 march 2018, when century number 142 was scored in 26 days.

In addition, we achieve 100 posts in a month in a long long time. The last time it was achieved was in March 2018 (113 posts). Hopefully, this century will be just the shift in momentum and the shot in the arm for this blog that was badly overdue.

One can notice that majority of posts in this latest century are guest posts. Bulk of guest posts are by one single overenthusiastic contributor Avinash Scrapwala who contribured a whopping 53 posts out of 100 ! One fellow contributor jokingly commented that he has set up a post writing factory. 😄

There are 22 other guest posts as well. That makes it 75 guest posts out of 100 ! My own contributions were mainly in the form of Blog Ten Year Challenge posts.

As many as 29 posts introduced new movies to the blog ! Five movies got YIPPEED during this century. 14 posts were Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. Lyrics for most of these songs were sent by Prakashchandra.

As we add songs, the background work needed to manage them has increased considerably. That is one major reason that has prevented me to post more of my articles. Articles where I discuss some topics of interest have also dried up. Hopefully I will be able to restore them soon.

In all this discussion, I was almost forgetting about the song. It is a song that I had discovered a while back and I had earmarked it for some special occasion. Then I forgot all about this song. When Prakashchandra sent this song as blog Ten Year Challenge then I got reacquinted with this song. I resisted the temptation to post this song as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

This song is a joie de vivre genre of song that is bound to cheer up the listeners. This song is not by well known artists. Rather, this song is acreation of unknown artists. The singer is totally unknown,. She recently made her debut in the blog when another song from this movie was taken up as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

The music director and lyricists are also less known. That is how rare this song and its details are.

This song is from “Bulbul”(1951). This obscure movie was directed by A Rashid for Hindustan Productions, Bombay. This movie had Majnu, Rukhsaana, Dilaawar, Sarla Devi, Jyotsna, Maqbool, Mannan, Sheikh etc in it.

“Bulbul”(1951) had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far. This fourth song from “Bulbul”(1951) is sung by Suman Purohit, a singer about whom I know nothing. For that matter even the lyricist A Rashid is an unknown name. Music is composed by K S Ragi who is relatively better known since we had had a few of his compositions already represented in the blog.

Here is this wonderful song from “Bulbul”(1951). Rare it may be, but it has the effect of cheering up the listener every time one listens to it. It is a forgotten gem created by forgotten artists.

This post is the ninth post of thed day. That is yet another record for the blog for quite some time. The last time nine songs were covered in one day was on 31 july 2020. It is only the 43rdday (out of 5307 days) that nine songs have been posted in the blog. The record for a day is 13, however.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This year has begun well for the blog. Let us hope that we sustain this momentum throuyghout the year.

I take this opportunity to thank all our contributors, visitors, well wishers and music lovers who keep supporting this blog in one way or the other and keep providing the fuel to drive this musical bandwagon.

Blog Day :

5303 Post No. : 17378

———————————————–—————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 11
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 24 January 2013, six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7395 Manmohan mukhda mod gaye Kashinath(1943) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7396 Chal chameli baag mein kauwwe udaayenge Bulbul(1951) 2 songs covered out of 5 by now
7397 Ho rasa saayang re Singapore (1960) Movie YIPPEED in the blog with this song
7398 Khat likh de sanwariya ke naam babu Aaye Din Bahaar Ke(1966) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7399 Jaa re jaa o harjaayee dekhi teri dildaari Kallicharan(1976) Movie YIPPEED by now
7400 The she I love Rafi NFS(1967) Century song for the blog

We observe that six songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on this date. The day culminated with a Rafi NFS which was the 7400th song for the blog. The previous century post was published on 31 December 2012. So it is easy to calculate that this century came in 24 days, which was slow by the then standards of the blog. 🙂 Well, well.

We also observe that four movies (out of five) whose songs were covered on that day have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only one movie that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

That movie is “Bulbul”(1951). This movie was directed by A Rashid for Hindustan Productions, Bombay. This obscure movie had Majnu, Rukhsaana, Dilaawar, Sarla Devi, Jyotsna, Maqbool, Mannan, Sheikh etc in it.

“Bulbul”(1951) had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the third song from the movie to appear in the blog. HFGK and every other online source, including the youtuber uploaders mention singers as Rajkumari and Suman Purohit. Do they not apply their own mind or do they not listen to the song themselves ? It is clearly a duet sung by a male and a female voice. Secondly the voice of Rajkumari is not there in the song. Thirdly, if one listens to the other songs of this movie and then compare those voices with the voices in this song, then it would appear that this song is sung by K S Ragi and Suman Purohit.

A Rashid is the lyricist. Music is composed by K S Ragi.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

ye duniyaa do din ki

hans le mauj uda le
ye duniyaa do din ki
ye duniyaa do din ki

bichhad gaya jab man ka saathi
bichhad gaya jab man ka saathi
saaj kahin aawaaz kahin
saaj kahin aawaaz kahin

jeewan ka jal bhar le
o bhar le

jeewan ka jal bhar le
ye duniyaa do din ki
ye duniyaa do din ki
hans le mauj uda le
ye duniyaa do din ki
ye duniyaa do din ki
hans le mauj uda le
ye duniyaa do din ki
ye duniyaa do din ki
