#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 129 # A tribute to Parveen Babi #
——————————————-—-

Today 4th April 2021 is the sixty-seventh birth anniversary of actress Parveen Babi(04.04.1954 – 20.01.2005). She would have been sixty-six years old today had she been alive. She left this world at the age of fifty-one years old only on 20th January’2005.

She started her career in Hindi Films with the movie ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer-1974’ though her movie ‘Charitra-1973’ was released earlier before ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’. She went on to act in many movies with leading actors of the ‘seventies’ and was held successful actress like other leading heroines of those years.
I am not going into her detailed biography and filmography in this article. I leave it for another article in the future. But I would like to mention here that I do not remember a single movie of Parveen Babi that I watched and had not liked her presence on the screen 😊 The memories of those movies are unforgettable.

In this article today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Aahutee (or Aahuti)-1978’. This a ‘beautiful reminder’ of those years was played on ‘Vividh Bharati’ couple of weeks back. As I listened to it, I find this song familiar but I had forgotten the movie name. Later on, I checked and found the movie name and I remembered to have watched this movie with my brothers and cousins in the summer vacations of that year ‘1978’. I do not remember the movie now, but I remember that it was story of ‘three brothers.’ In those years all such movies having stories woven around ‘three brothers’ and ‘lost and found’ stories would easily attract me and my younger brothers as we were three siblings (all males) to our parents. ‘Aahuti’ was one such movie among many others that used to be produced in those ‘multi-starrer’ days. This movie had couple of songs which brings back memories for me.

‘Aahuti’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Basho Productions, Bombay’. It had Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev, Kamini Kaushal, Ajit, Madan Puri, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Raj Mehra, Kuljeet, Dulari, Birbal, Rajan Kapoor, Ranjana Sachdev, Preeti Ganguly, Ranbeer Raj, Pal Sharma, Darshan Arora, Dharmveer, Master Romi, Master Rajesh, Master Ravi and others.

Pradeep Kumar makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1978.

This movie had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Following is the list of songs this movie had;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-1) Mahendra Kapoor, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
02 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-2) Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Manhar, chorus

05 Naukri sau ki hazaar ki Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
06 Jugni ik ladki ka naam Lata Mangeshkar, chorus Being discussed today

Only two songs from the above have been earlier posted on the blog.

As I mentioned above, two songs from this movie which brings back memories for me are ‘Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam’ and ‘Naukri sau ki hazaar ki’, the later one has been shared long back but yet to be posted.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus and on screen it is performed by Parveen Babi and many other female artists. Also seen in the picturization of this song are Shashi Kapoor, Krishan Dhawan and others. Today’s song is beautiful reminder of the ‘Parveen Babi’ days at the box office. And what to say about Lata Mangeshkar’s singing? … just listen and enjoy this song 😊

The situation hen this song takes place can be guessed by any one after watching this song (an archtypical song situation of those years) 😊

let us now listen and enjoy today’s song based on Punjabi folk music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal …

Our tributes to Parveen Babi!

Blog Day : 3746 Post No. : 14705

Today’s song is the 5th song from the film Aahuti-50, to be discussed here. I have not seen this film, but from its second Title ” Anokhi Kurbani “, the movie seems to be about some kind of sacrifice. Whether it was for the country, family or just a Lover is not known. This was one of those films, made by a less known banner, directed by one whose name I read first time- Kulbhushan and the MD, who left no trace of him either of origin or the end- D.C.Dutt.

D C Dutt is its Music Director. His name is not known to many. All of us know that Lata Mangeshkar had to struggle very hard in her initial attempts of getting into Playback singing in Hindi films. In her early struggle, three Duttas helped her. The first was of course Datta Davjekar who gave her the first opportunity to sing a playback song for his film Aapki sewa mein-47. The second was K.Datta or Datta Korgaonkar, who, after his favourite singer Noorjehan left India, took Lata under his wings and gave her songs. The third Dutt was this-D C Dutt. No information is available about him whatsoever, except what is printed in HFGK and its duplication in Pankaj Raag’s book “Dhunon ki Yatra”. Thanks to this, we know that his debut was through film Sona Chandi-1946. Out of 12 songs of that film, only two were his and one of them was by Lata Mangeshkar. For rest, the composer was Tufail Faruqi.

This Lata song has a history. Film Sona Chandi was censored first on 19-7-46 and released. That time these 2 songs of D.C.Dutt were not there. In January 1948, when Gandhi ji’s death took place, many songs on Gandhi ji were recorded by many singers and composers. One of the most famous, popular and successful song was “Suno suno aye duniya walon, Bapuji ki amar kahani” sung by Mohd. Rafi in 4 parts and recorded by its composers Husnalal-Bhagatram. In this spate, D.C.Dutt also recorded a Gandhi ji song by Lata in 1948. Producers of film Sona Chandi got this and one more song ( by Saroj Borkar) included in the film and the film was re-censored on 9-4-48. Thus an early song of Lata was in a film, because of D.C.Dutt. Meanwhile the original Music Director of the film Sona Chandi-46 aka Bhai-Bhai, Tufail Faruqi ( brother in law of Ghulam Haider) had already migrated to Pakistan after the Partition.

D C Dutt later did some more films like, Sarai ke bahar-47, Dil ki Awaz-48, Anjana-48 ( he even acted in this film), Ram Darshan-50 ( he was one of the 6 Music Directors that the film had), Aahuti-50, Simba-51, Ranee-52 and lastly Sahil-59. Very surprisingly, after film Sona Chandi-46, Lata did not sing a single song in any of his films. After 48-49, Lata had become a very busy and ‘in demand’ singer and she would sing only for established composers ( we all know that she did not sing even in Madan Mohan’s debut film Aankhen-50, just because he was new).

The cast of the film, Aahuti-50 consists of Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjit Kumari ( who married actor Ramsingh and settled in UP), Sapru, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Struggling actress Shyama, Sudhir, Indubala and many others.

Mumtaz Shanti or Mumtaz Begum was born in 1922 at village Dinga in Punjab (now in Pakistan). She lost her parents early and she was brought up by her uncle who was a Police constable. After his transfer to Lahore, Mumtaz was able to continue her schooling. She learnt dancing and Music.She was also an expert in household chores. She was first rejected by Shorey Pictures,but then the famous writer/Lyricist Wali Saheb helped her and took her to Calcutta’s East India Film co. to work in a Punjabi film ‘Sohni Kumharan’-37. She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambai ki Dali’-41 in Calcutta. Meanwhile,she was invited by Shorey pictures to Lahore to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘-42. This film ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Barkat Nizami was the uncle of actress Mumtaz Shanti. It was through the efforts of Barkat Nizami that she was introduced to the Hindi film screen. This person had a knack for recruiting girls to cinema. First he brought in Mumtaz Shanti and then his own wife, Geeta Nizami. According to him this was a business, more than a marriage. He used to take 50% of earnings from Mumtaz Shanti, but after she married Wali Saheb, this stopped.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies offered her a role in their film Basant-42. She did Basant and Kismet-43. Both the films were hits and famous all over India. Mumtaz was good looking,tall and lithe,so looked attractive. After Kismet she became a freelancer and worked with many different studios, in Badalti Duniya and Sawal-43,Bharthari, Lady Doctor and Pagli Duniya-44,Chand chakori-45,Shravan Kumar, Dharati, Magadhraj and Pujari-46, Dekhojee and Doosri Shaadi-47,Padmini, Heer Ranjha and Ghar ki izzat-48,Putali, Biwi and Aahuti-50. Her last film in India was Zamane ki Hawa-52. In all she worked in 21 Hindi and 4 Punjabi films. She did 2 films in Calcutta, 4 in Lahore and the rest in Bombay.

She had married Lyricist/writer/Director Wali Saheb in 1947. He directed her in 3 films in India. He was very strict and forced her to come to studios only in Burqa. She was not allowed to talk to anyone. Manto has written some interesting incidents about her in his sketch of Ashok Kumar. According to him after marriage she used to come for shootings wearing ‘Burqa’. And Wali Saheb told the Producer/Director that no one should touch her. She was the second wife of Wali Saheb and she didn’t have any issue. Wali Saheb, however adopted a son for her ( who was a child of Wali Saheb’s brother, another famous lyricist, Nazim Panipati). This adopted son, Sikander Bin Wali lives in Washington D.C. Wali Saheb’s elder son from his first marriage, Zafar was Assistant Director of film Ghunghat-1962. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Walisaheb did 3-4 films,without much success. He died in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti also died in 93/94,unsung and unknown in Pakistan. ( information culled from articles provided by shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, Filmdom-46, Khwaja Irfan Anwar and my notes).

Many actors, Directors and few actresses came from Kashmir, to join Hindi films. In olden times, some prominent names were Jeevan, Chandra Mohan and Sapru, besides many others. Actresses were Shyama Zutshi and Yashodhara Katju in early times. Here is some information about D.K.Sapru, based on an edited article from Chinar Shade.com, and from shri M.N.Sardana ji with thanks…

“ Where from have you come ? You look like an European . Please sit . I need to talk to you .”

This is what V Shantaram had told the young boy in 1944 who had come all the way from Jalandhar to Prabhat Studios Poona . Shantaram , Babu Rao Pai and S. Fatehlal were the partners of Prabhat Studios present at that point of time.

Looking at his face and after the usual introduction ,V Shantaram signed the blue eyed handsome Daya kishen Sapru for a role in his next movie RAM SHASTRI.. The character of a Peshwa played by him was well noticed and the movie turned out a big hit.. He was signed as lead hero by the Company on a monthly salary of Rs3000/= highest ever paid to any hero during those days . It was a hefty sum that enabled him to live a princely life during those days .It was somewhere around 1945-46.

Films started pouring in later .He acted in Romeo and Juliet ( opposite Nargis . Nargis’s Mother Jaddan Bai was all praise for Sapru. The film was produced by Nargis’s brother Akhtar Hussain . ) ,Jhansi Ki Rani ,Kalapaani , Hum Hindustaani , Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Mujhe Jeene Do , Leader and Shaheed . Who does not remember his role as Majhale Sarkar ( Chaudhary ) in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. Again as Zamindaar in Mujhe Jeene Do , he became quite popular. We saw him in some wonderful roles in Naya Daur , Prem Pujari ,Jewel Thief , Krodhi , Kudrat ,Dharm Veer, Dream Girl, Zanjeer , Pakeezah and many more such films .It was a period when story writers would create a character for him in the story or script. He was seen either as a Zamindaar or a Police commissioner or a Judge in most of his later films .

In Total, he must have acted in more than 350 films and out of which he played lead role in more than 50 films. He also played lead roles in some Gujarati and Punjabi films.

Saprus are Sarswat Brahmins from Kashmir known as kashmiri Pandits who belong to DIPAT SAMAN AUPAMANYAVA Gotra or the lineage of an Aryan Rishi .This clan of kashmiri Pandits actually belongs to village SAPREIN in present day Kulgam district of kashmir and could be safely called as aboriginal kashmiris . some other prominent Saprus are Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru , Jagdish Narayan Sapru ( Prominent Businessman of the country ) Sahaj Ram Sapru Revenue collector during the rule of Afghan Governor Azim Khan ( 1809-1819 ) and Dr Allama Iqbal Urdu poet and Islamic scholar ( He too belonged to a Sapru family from kulgam that had converted to Islam )

Daya kishen Sapru belonged to a well off family from Kashmir and his father was employed in Maharaja’s Treasury . That made the family to move to Jammu and Lahore during winters. Daya Krishen was born at Jammu and had his early education at Jammu and Lahore .Fluent in Punjabi , he was also proficient in Hindi , Urdu and English .From his childhood days , he would love music and singing . He could easily play on his Harmonium.

Before moving to PUNE , D K as he was known amongst his numerous friends lived at Jalandhar cantt for some time where he took up the job of a contractor .He had four brothers and two sisters and D K happened to be the fourth child in this joint family.

D K Sapru met Marathi actress and IPTA activist Hemvati and they fell in love. They married in 1948 .Hemvati was a noted Marathi actress who also worked at PRITHVI Theatres. She acted in SANGRAM with Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant in lead roles. She had also worked with Dev Anand in MOHAN ,Mubarak and Renuka in Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani and Raj Kapoor in Jail Yatra . A play of Prithvi Theatres, named Deewar had Hemvati and Raj kapoor in lead roles and the play became quite popular on stage during those days.

After marriage , Hemvati played the role of a caring wife and an affectionate mother in her family. After marriage,She possibly acted only in one movie PATIT PAAVAN a home production of sapru family. Hemavati died on 10-4-2005.

Sapru children are also in films. To quote their elder daughter REEMA is a well known script writer while second daughter PREETI is a successful Punjabi actress while their son Tej is a noted film and TV actor. The brother and sisters are closely attached to each other. They too live by the family values that they inherited from their father .

D K Sapru also acquired good and working knowledge of Homeopathy and was seen reading Homeopathic books quite often during his spare time. He then started practicing this school of medicine and would treat everybody without any charge often Buying medicines and distributing them free.

Sapru also committed a folly of producing films . One can say that he was misguided by some selfish friends .Though he had learnt some lessons from his first home production Patit paavan , a movie that earned him a few thousands only yet he took up another production project ” Bahadur Shah Zaffar”’ and brought in a large star cast that included Sudesh Kumar , Chand Usmani ,Shyama , Rehman ,Jeevan, Ulhaas ( M N kaul ) and Nirupa Roy .He pooled in all his resources and raised loans for the project mortgaging his spacious new Bunglow .The movie did not sell on Box office. That landed the family in great trouble. The house had to be sold to repay debts .

Sapru turned diabetic during his later life. Inspite of his failing health he decided to make a last attempt to produce another film JEEVAN CHALNE KAA NAAM. By Now Reema was a trained screen play / script writer . She wrote the script and the family signed in Sanjeev Kumar , Rekha , Shashi Kapoor . DK fell ill suddenly and had to be hospitalized for about an year. The project was abandoned. D K was also operated upon for a malignant growth in his shoulder and finaly died of a heart attack at a young age of 63 years in 1979. His favourite child Reema was already married at that time . And by then he had also turned a grandfather.

It was big blow to the judiciary when Mr Daya Kishen Sapru departed for heavenly abode. There were other esteemed judges, who graced the self-righteous chair of the temple of justice but could not create a niche for them like Mr Sapru and Mr Murad, in Hindi films . It is to their credit ,that they both not only enhanced the prestige of judiciary ,but they were also apt in enacting all types of characters.

Mr D K Sapru,scion of an influential Pandit family of J & K and one of the most handsome actor of his time ,like other young men joined the film line to become hero. Fair complexioned with expressive light eyes like his senior actor & fellow Kashmiri Pandit Chandra Mohan ,soon he became a known actor. His cousin Mr Jeevan was already an established actor in Hindi Films .

In 1948, Jaddan Bai produced a movie which was based upon the tragic tale of Romeo And Juliet, written by William Shakespeare,in which the female leading role was played by her daughter Nargis, opposite Sapru Saab. In the same year he married Hemavati ,a Marathi actress ,who mostly had worked on stage of IPTA and Prithvi Theatres and also in few movies. Interestingly ,she was leading lady in 1947 movie Mohan ,in which the struggling actor Dev Anand was her hero. Hemvati & Sapru ,looked as if they were made for each other ,as both were good looking ,fair coloured and had similar light eyes.

There was a big advertisement in Film India and other papers ,when K Asif announced Mughal E Azam ,for which he took Sapru and Nargis as jilted lovers with Chandra Mohan in the title role of the Great Mughal. The movie could not progress , as firstly the financier migrated to Pakistan and in 49 , Chandra Mohan passed away . Mr Sapru became a full time character actor and his versatility came to the forefront , when he portrayed dissimilar character in different movies . Sapru Saab was man for all seasons ,and could portray saintly person/villain/cop/ foreigner/ villager / sophisticated person /King/ Sultan .all type of characters with ease.

He looked so charming person as rich Jeweller ,father of Tanuja in Jewel Thief and in Tere Mere Sapne, he was a humble villager. In Zanzeer ,he was a mafia lord and in Majboor (1964) ,he was prosecuting lawyer. He appeared in numerous mythological movies and in fact made Patit Pawan in 1955 ,which did average business.

As an actor, he was doing well, therefore one fails to appreciate the reasons as to why he thought of producing movies. He made Bahadur Shah Zafar ,in which he himself essayed the role of unfortunate last Mughal. He took Chand Usmani, Shyama, Jeevan, Sudesh Kumar , Ullhas etc in the movie. Unaware of the lack of honesty of his production team , Mr Sapru kept faith on them and could not monitor the expenses and the movie was over budgeted .He spend all his money and even mortgaged his unmoveable assets to make the movie spectacular and completed the movie. But sadly the movie could not be released and remained in cans . It was a big blow for him.

Today’s song is sung by Uma Devi and Shanti Varma, as per HFGK. However, as per one comment on You Tube by a known collector, she was Shanti Sharma, and not Varma.’Swaron ki Yatra’, by Anil Bhargav also credits this song to Shanti Sharma. I have not found any singer Shanti Varma, but Shanti Sharma’s name as a singer is found in films Raees-48, Kinara, Shaukeen, Dhoom Dham, Rimzim and Veer Ghatotkach-all of 49, and Azmaish-52 in HFGK.

With this song, the blog now has 3000 songs from the decade of 1940s (viz from years between 1941 to 1950).

Hullo Atulites

The excitement surrounding the 10th anniversary has not yet subsided. We are awaiting posts from a few regulars, hope they don’t hide behind the excuse of laziness and other similar reasons 🙂

22nd July is the 95th birth anniversary of Mukesh Chand Mathur better known the world over as Mukesh; the man who was the voice of Raj Kapoor (mostly), Dilip Kumar, Feroz Khan, Manoj Kumar, Sunil Dutt etc.

He was born in Delhi to Zorawar Chand Mathur and Chand Rani. The music teacher who came home to teach his sister found a pupil in Mukesh who would listen from the adjoining room. His voice was first noticed by Motilal, a distant relative, when he sang at his sister’s wedding. Motilal took him to Mumbai and arranged for music lessons with Pandit Jagannath Prasad. During this period Mukesh was offered a role as an actor-singer in a Hindi film, “Nirdosh” (1941). His first song was “Dil Hi Bujha Hua Ho Toh” as an actor-singer for “Nirdosh”. He got his break as a playback singer for actor Motilal in 1945 with the film Pehli Nazar with music composed by Anil Biswas and lyrics written by Aah Sitapuri (would like to know more about him).
The first song that Mukesh sang for a Hindi film was “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De”. He was a Saigal fan (I don’t know of many who were not a fan of Saigal) and used to imitate his idol. It is said that when Saigal first heard the song “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De” he is said to have remarked, “I don’t recall singing this song.”

Naushad Ali helped him form his own style and before he became voice of Raj Kapoor he had a string of hits with Dilip Kumar in “Mela”, “Andaz”, “Anokhi Ada” etc. His other hits with Dilip Kumar were “Anokha Pyar” with Anil Biswas, “Madhumati” with Salil Choudhary, “Yahudi” with Shankar Jaikishan etc.

Mukesh recorded about 130 songs for Shankar- Jaikishan followed by Kalyanji Anandji. A few years back I had gone to an “Anandji Nite” and was drowned in songs by Mukesh; though there were a few Manna Dey and Kishore Kumar songs too in that program but the number of songs of Mukesh were more. (but I have no complaints, I enjoyed myself)

Many of his songs are still popular and “kai baar yu bhi dekha hain, yeh jo man ki seema rekha hain” from Rajnigandha got him a National Award for Best Playback Singer for the year 1973. His Filmfare Awards were for “Sab kuch seekha humne” Anari, 1959; “Sabse bada nadaan wahi hai” Pehchan, 1970; “Jai bolo beimaan ki” Be-imaan, 1972; and “Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein” Kabhi Kabhie, 1976.

He complained of chest pain when on a tour to the USA, was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead. Lata Mangeshkar completed the concert with his son Nitin Mukesh and bought the body home where a grand funeral was held. On getting the news of his death Raj Kapoor is said to have burst into tears and remarked “I Have lost my Voice.”

Many of his songs were released after his death. “Dharam Veer”; “Amar Akbar Anthony”; “Khel Khiladi Ka”; “Darinda” and “Chandi Sona” in 1977 & in 1978 “Aahuti”, “Paramatma”, “Tumhari Kasam” and “Satyam Shivam Sundaram”. His last known release was for the movie Chand Grahan in 1997 a good twenty years after he went away.

The song with this post is one which was very popular in its times and is still heard on AIR’s Vividh Bharati. It was written by Anand Bakshi who would have turned 88 on 21st July. (Today I am not writing anything about how much I love his work) He wrote it for “Aahuti” which was a movie with a standard storyline, made extremely popular by Manmohan Desai’s movies and B. R. Chopra’s “Waqt” – meaning the movie was a story of a family which gets separated at the start of the movie and reunites before the climax :). The movie had a star cast headed by Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Parveen Babi, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev and Ajit heading the supporting cast. The movie had five songs one of which “kash aisa hota” has been posted. Today’s song is courtesy Avinashji who was generous enough to send me the lyrics which he had written out back in 2013. Thank you Avinashji specially for adding the Devanagari version too.

Saathi meri saathi

Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Saathi meri saathi
Rut aati jaati
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Aise ham saathi jaise diyaa baati
Aise ham saathi jaise diyaa baati
Rab di badi hai meharbaani ee ee
Rab di badi hai meharbaani
Saathi meri saathi
Rut aati jaati
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Raamji ne saari ye duniyaa banaayee
O raamji ne saari ye duniyaa banaayee
Hamne ye duniyaa sajaayee
Mazdoor ham hain ham
Kis ise kam hain ham
Mazdoor ham hain ham
Kis se kam hain ham

Mehnat ki apni kamaayee ee ee
Ham hi akele dono se khele
Kya aag hai kya paani ee

(aa aa aa aa)
Saathi meri saathi
Rut aati jaati
(aa aaaa)
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Sun mere raja aa aa

Aa aa paas aaja
ho Sun mere raja
Aa aa paas aaja
Achchi nahin ee itni doori
Hai kaam jitney saare jahaan ke
Hai kaam jitney saare jahaan ke
Hai pyaar sabse zaroori ee ee
Dil na lage to
sau saal jee lo
Kis kaam ki ye zindagaani ee ee

Saathi meri saathi
Rut aati jaati
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa

Masti mein saari basti hamaari
Masti mein saari basti hamaari
Ham door hain uljhanon se ae ae
Ham door hain uljhanon se
Ham door hain uljhanon se
Dil ke haseen ho
Haseen ho
Waaqif nahin ho
Dil ke haseen ho raja
Waaqif nahin ho
Tum doston dushmanon se ae
Tum doston dushmanon se

Kya baat ki hai
Ye dosti hai
Ya dushmani hai puraani
Saathi meri saathi
O o o
Rut aati jaati
O o
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

aa aa aa aa aa
Saathi meri saathi
aa aa aa aa aa
Rut aati jaati
aa aa aa aa aa
Kahe teri meri kahaani ee ee
Kahe teri meri kahaani

Today (15 august 2017) is the 71st independence day of India.

This is the 10st independence day for this blog. We have discussed all well known independence day songs during the past occasions. But no, we have not run out of songs for the occasions. We still have quite a few such songs up our sleeve.

Today (20 july 2017) is the 45th remembrance day of Geeta Dutt (23 november 1930-20 july 1972). By that time, she had achieved so much in her chosen field of activity that she was assured of being counted among HFM legends. It is easy to forget that she was just 41 when she passed away. That way, she was one of those who departed for their heavenly abode quite early, yet achieved a lot in their fields and became legends. Some other such names that come to mind are Guru Dutt (her own spouse), Jaikishan, Shailendra etc.
