The date today is 15 november 2019. It was on this day thirty years ago (on 15 november 1989) that Sachin Tendulkar made his test debut. By a remarkable coincidence, it was on this day fifty years ago (viz on 15 november 1969) that Gundappa Vishwanath made his test debut as well.

A test match is being played today (15 november 2019) by India at Indore. It was while watching this match that I became aware that it was exactly thirty and fifty years ago that two Indian batting legends made their test debuts.

These batting legends enhanced the stature of Indian batting. Seeing their batting, lots of batting talents came up in India. If today Indian batting is regarded as the strongest among all test playing nations then Gundappa Vishwanath and Sachin Tendulkar have played inspirational and important roles in that. It was appropriate that Indian batsmen “celebrated” the occasion by dishing out a memorable batting performance today- they hammered 406 runs in one day of test cricket. Last one hour saw more than one hundred runs being scored as T20 rate.

This occasion needs to be celebrated in the blog too, with a suitable song. While searching for a suitable song, I became aware that “Awwal Number”(1990) was a movie that centered around cricket.

“Awwal Number”(1990) was produced and directed by Dev Anand. This movie had Dev Anand, Aamir Khan, Aditya Pancholi, Neeta Puri, Ekta, Sudhir Pandey, Vikram Gokhale, Parikshat Sahni, Ram Mohan, Anjan Srivastava, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, Sameer Khakkar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raj Kishore, Manmouji, Mac Mohan, Asha Sharma, Subbiraj, Ajit Vachchani, Aftab Shivdasani etc in it.

I was aware about the movie, but I was not aware that this movie was about cricket. It was not only about cricket, it even had a song about cricket. Just what the doctor ordered, as Ravi Shashstri, in his commentating avatar would have said.

Here is this song. It is sung by Udit Narayan, Amit Kumar and Bappi Lahiri. Amit Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

With this song, “Awwal Number”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

Thanks to Prakashchandra, I have been able to watch the video of this song. The picturisation shows that this song is picturised on Dev Anand (lip syncing in Bappi Lahiri’s voice), Aditya Pancholi (Amit Kumar’s voice) and Aamir Khan (Udit Narayan’s voice).

Today (13 november 2019) is the birthday of Juhi Chaawla (DoB 13 november 1967). Juhi Chawla, alongwith the likes of Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Jayaprada etc was from my generation viz born in 1960s). 🙂

Indian actresses holding their own in inernational beauty pageants and they going on to become popular matinee idols was not all that common those days. Juhi Chawla became Femina Miss India in 1984. She then participated in Miss Universe competition, winning the best costume award there.

Though she did not win the Miss Universe title or even finish among runners ups, it is interesrting to note that she was perhaps the most successful among all Miss Universe contestents of that year. While most other contestents did not have any reat careers, Juhi Chawla had a very successful movie career beginning from 1986, when se made her debut with “Sultanat”(1986).

“Qayamat Se qayamat Tak”(1988) launched her (and Aamir Khan) in Hindi movies.

1990s was the prime decade for Juhi Chawla. when she, alongwith Madhuri Dixit ruled the roost as the leading lady in Hindi movies.
Nowa days, she is still active, not in movies but in IPL, as co owner of Kolkata Night Riders.

Whenever I think of Juhi Chawla, the first movie that comes to my mind is “Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”(1993).

I have watched this movie. But now I cannot recall where I watched the movie. I was posted in Purna (Maharashtra) during those days. Purna had no movie halls. Going to Nanded or Parbhani to watch movies during weekends used to be my modus operandi. Did I watch this movie in one of these two places, or did I watch the movie somewhere else (like say Secunderabad) I am not sure now. It happens with growing age. I (alongwith the birthday girl) have become older by 26 years. 🙂

I loved the movie. Both lead actors were in my age group, making it easy for me to identify with their characters. 🙂

Three songs from this movie have been covered. The third song from the song was covered exactly two years ago for the same occasion, viz Juhi Chawla’s birthday.

Here is another song from the same movie (Fourth out of six), to celebrate another birthday of Juhi Chawla. The song is sunng by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The song is picturised on Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan, who imagine themselves falling in love with each other, while the two kids (playing Aamir Khan’s nephew nd niece) have no clue.

We wish Juhi Chawla a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.


Song-Mujhse muhabbat ka izraar karta (Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke)(1993) Singers-Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Lyrics

mujhse mohabbat ka izhaar karta
mujhse mohabbat ka izhaar karta
mujhse mohabbat ka izhaar karta
kaash koi ladka mujhe pyaar karta
kaash koi ladka mujhe pyaar karta
mujhse mohabbat ka izhaar karti
mujhse mohabbat ka izhaar karti
kaash koi ladki mujhe pyaar karti

chori chori wo mera deedaar karti
kaash koi ladki mujhe pyaar karti
kaash koi ladki mujhe pyaar karti

Blog Day :

4092 Post No. : 15236

I have been meaning to write a post on Majrooh Sultanpuri for some months now to commemorate the 100th birth Anniversary of a poet and film song writer par excellence.   But as usual one puts somethings on back burner and postpones things for some other time.

Last week I started the lyrics of this song from ‘Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak’ (1988), incidentally on my iPad and saved the file in yahoo mail. But that file is not opening in the any of the computers, so this post again didn’t even start.  Today is 1st October, 2019.  A very nice post by Sadanad Kamath Sir has appeared in the blog, which is quiet inspiring and it gave fresh ammunition to my jaded thoughts to start this write up.

Majrooh Saab’s super success with all music director, big and small, prolific and selective, is not comparable to anyone else.   None of the major song writers in his era can boast a list of composers as comprehensive as him, and more importantly successful, famous and hit songs.  Be it Madan Mohan and SD Burman, Chitragupt and Laxmikant Pyarelal, or RD Burman, Roshan, Rajesh Roshan & Khaiyyam, least of all Naushad & OP Nayyar, C Ramchandra & Salil Chaudhary also. I don’t have to start listing the beautiful lyrical and profound songs, Majrooh Saab wrote with/for all these composers.

Among his contemporaries, Kaifi Azmi, Sahir Ludhianvi, Shailendra, Hasrat Jaipuri, Rajendra Krishnan, Shakeel Badayuni, Qamar Jalaalabadi, later on Indeevar, Anand Bakshi and Gulzar etc., most were aligned with a music director or a film production  group etc.  Music Directors also preferred to work with a single lyricist or a couple at a time.  Among the major composers only SD Burman seemed to have worked with all of the above listed lyricist, as well as Majrooh.

Sahir Ludhianvi was more prone to making tributes to other poets in his songs.  But Majrooh seems to have paid a ‘khiraj-e-aqeedat’ to his fellow progressive poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz in Madan Mohan’s “Chiraag’ song “Teri Aankhon Ke Siwa Duniya Mein Rakha Kya Hai”.  This line is part of the immortal Nazm by Faiz – “Mujh Se Pehli Si Mohabbat Mere Mehboob Na Maang“.

In recent times, I have found that reading good work by others inspires me to write my own thoughts.  This is truer about poetry.  When I listen to some poets work, it given wings to my thoughts too.  I feel like writing something not necessarily on similar lines, better or superior, but some verse, some tributary sentences.

One can only wonder how such great creative minds must have felt when they heard some inspiring work of other greats and felt like expanding on the theme.  In this instance Majrooh Saab has gone on another tangent –

teri aankhon ke siwaa duniya mein rakkha kya hai
ye utthen subha chale, ye jhuken sham dhaley
mera jeena mera marna inhi palkon ke taley

As a poet with a heart that was Majrooh, why won’t he say –

dil me rakh lena ise haathon se ye chhoote na kahin
geet naazuk hai mera sheeshe se bhi toote na kahin

In my earlier tribute post for Majrooh Saab I have stated that just the lyrical poetry in “Rahen Na Rahen Hum, Mehka Karenge” in ‘Mamta’ (1966) is enough to make his place in the ‘Hall of Fame’ of Hindi film music.   Many colourful songs for Nasir Hussain’s films are written by Majrooh Saab for OP Nayyar and RD Burman.

The new age songs written by Majrooh for the film ‘Khaamoshi’ (1996) are among my favourites.  This time I have chosen a song from the 1988 film ‘Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak’ produced by Nasir Hussain and directed by his son Mansoor Khan for launching of Tahir Hussain’s son Aamir Khan. Incidentally dialogues, story and screenplay all are credit to Nasir Hussain.  The song starts with prelude music of clocks going “tick tock tick tock” in a departmental store, where Juhi Chawla has come to shop with her parents, Dalip Tahil and Beena.  She accidentally runs into Aamir Khan, who has promised his parent that he will not meet and talk to Juni Chawla for 6 month (?) or so. Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla belong to two Rajput families who are at logger heads with each other over past broken alliances among the families due to which Dalip Tahil’s sister had committed suicide.

Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan met during a picnic trip to Mount Abu and fell in love without knowing that their families are having this rivalry.  Due to this, the love story is actually doomed to end in tragedy, but at the time of this song the lovebirds are unaware of this and are happily waiting for the wait period to get over. The singers are Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, and the music is by Anand-Milind. The songwriter is one and only Majrooh Sultanpuri.   If I remember correctly, this was the film which started the trend of abbreviating the name of film as QSQT.

A song of hope and happy endings. A song with birthday parties, picnic on cycles and dreamy dates and marking days in the calendar till happy days are here again.

Song – Ae Mere Humsafar, Ek Zara Intezaar (Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak) (1988) Singer – Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Anand Milind

Lyrics 

ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai
manzil pyaar ki
ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai

ab hai judaai ka mausam

kaise na jaayega andhera
kyun na thamega toofaan
ab hai judaai ka mausam
do pal ka mehmaan
kaise na jaayega andhera
kyun na thamega toofaan
kaise na milegi
manzil pyaar ki
ae mere
humsafar
ek zaraa intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai
manzil pyaar ki

pyaar ne jahaan pe rakkha hai
jhoom ke qadam ek baar
wahin se khula hai koi rasta
wahin se giri hai deewaar
pyaar ne jahaan pe rakkha hai
jhoom ke qadam ek baar
wahin se khula hai koi rasta
wahin se giri hai deewaar
roke kab ruki hai
manzil pyaar ki
ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai
manzil pyaar ki

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 11
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I could not have expected a better surprise than this one today. Aha, here is this wonderful memorable song that has got repeated in a film after 34 years. And now, that repeat itself is 28 years past. Wow, 62 years later we are going to talk about a song from 1957, which appeared once again in another film in 1991.

Yes, the iconic song of road travel that has been immortalized in the annals of Indian cinema. The tone and the context of the song – a vagabond traveler, a second hand truck, the endless roads, and a journey without a destination – it set the template for others to emulate. Footloose has no mark over this. Don’t we all, at some time in life, aspire for a meandering aimless trip, just for the sake of the journey. And just for the heck of it. The destination – may it exist or not, companions – may they be there or not. Desultory, adrift, without any aim, feckless – when the apparent random futility is the purpose of the endeavor. What a state to be in – being, and yet not being, nary a care in the world. Aah yes, the mind sometimes wants an escape of sorts – “Le Chala Jidhar Ye Dil Nikal Padey”.

The original from the film ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957) needs no introductions. The words, the melody and the imagery is etched in the mind, in all its details – Delhi roads of mid 1950s, sans traffic; the time when the traffic used to pass under the India Gate, and the Kashmere Gate (now these are monuments, cordoned off from the traffic); a miniscule encounter with a coy lady sitting in a car coming from the opposite direction; driving past the Taj Mahal; the long row of village belles carrying earthen pots of water, offering no grass (घास नहीं डालती 🙂 ) to the most handsome beseeching young man claiming to be laid out like a carpet at their feet – yes, all etched in the mind like it happened yesterday.

Time was when Sachin Da was quite, nay very selective, as always, in his choice of the singing voice for individual songs. And Kishore Da was never his ‘always’ choice for playback for Dev Anand. But Sachin Da has been proven right and right and right again, in his choice of singing voices. Imagine a “Khoya Khoya Chaand. . .”, or “Dil Ka Bhanwar. . .” or “Tu Kahaan Ye Bataa. . .” or “Hum Bekhudi Mein. . .” in a voice other than Rafi Sb, and a “Jaayen To Jaayen Kahaan. . .” in a voice other than Talat Sb, or the jazzy “Hum Dum Se Gaye. . .” in a voice other than Manna Dey, or the magnificent “Ye Raat Ye Chandni. . .”, or “Na Tum Hamen Jaano. . .” or “Chup Hai Dharti. . .” or “Yaad Aa Gayin Wo. . .” in a voice other than Hemant Da. It just will not stick in the imagination. Sachin Da got the best, the most suitable voice for the song, and after listening to them, the only verdict is – it cannot be bettered. In all the outings that Sachin Da shared with Dev Anand, apparently ‘Funtoosh’ (1956) and ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970) are the only two collaborations wherein we hear Kishore Da as the only voice playing back for Dev Anand. In all other films they have done together, Sachin Da has used a combination of different voices for Dev Sb. ‘Baazi’ (1951) also has only Kishore Da’s voice backing up Dev Anand for “Dil Ye Kya Cheez Hai. . .”, but then it is the only male voice song in the film, and that too, a song that only Kishore Da can do justice to.

And not just for Dev Sb. Sachin Da also has Rafi Sb and Kishore Da playing back for Rajesh Khanna in ‘Aradhana’ (1969), and Rafi Sb, Kishore Da and Manhar as the singing voices for Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Abhimaan’ (1973). Here was a music director who had his finger not on the pulse of public appeal, but on the pulse of divining which voice is the most suitable for a particular melody, a particular mood, and a particular situation.

And so, coming to the surprise that I mentioned in the first line of this write up. As I picked up this song for creating the next post in the series of repeat songs, a realization hit home. Today is the birth anniversaries of the two stalwarts who created the original song in 1957 – Sachin Da and Majrooh Sb. For Majrooh Sb, it is the centenary celebration, and for Sachin Da it is the 113th. Actually, Majrooh Sb’s info was already in mind since last night, as I was preparing Sadanand ji’s excellent write up for this great poet. And the rest of the coincidental links fell in place as I picked up this song for today’s post.

The film ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin’ from 1991, is a popular hit romantic comedy from its time. It is remake of the storyline of the iconic ‘Chori Chori’ from 1956, which had the lead pair billing of Nargis and Raj Kapoor. And in turn, ‘Chori Chori’ is following the same storyline as the 1934 Hollywood hit film ‘It Happened One Night’, starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, and directed by the legendary Frank Capra. This theme has also been used in other films in Kannada and Tamil. In later years, we also see ‘Jab We Met’ in 2007, based somewhat loosely on the same storyline.

The film is produced by Gulshan Kumar and is directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The lead pair is Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt. By 1991, Aamir was already an acknowledged star in the industry, and Pooja was just beginning her career. For both of them, this film proved to be a strong fillip for their individual careers.

The caper is well known – a spoilt heiress of a rich businessman flees from home, to be with the person she believes, wrongly of course, she is in love with. On the way, she meets another boy, the hero of the story, who helps her to get to her target, and eventually lands her back at her father’s home. As an outcome of the road adventures that are shared by the boy and the girl, they inadvertently and without realizing it till quite late in the storyline, fall in love with each other. And the movie ends with the girl fleeing once again (with the help of a very co-operative father) on the way to the altar, to be with the person she is truly in love with.

When I came to this connection, I was/am quite astounded. What a selection of a song for a memory reprisal. The original song with Dev Sb in the driver’s seat, is about an aimless road adventure. And in this film, the lead protagonists are going thru a road adventure of their own making, trying to save themselves from police, the detectives in pursuit and the general public who have been made aware of the runaway girl through newspaper ads and posters.

On their runaway adventure, there is car breakdown. It is taken into a garage for repairs. The mechanic departs briefly to get some welding work done from outside. The boy-girl pair are alone in the garage. The radio on the mechanic’s desk is playing. And as the mechanic departs, on comes this song on the radio waves. It catches the attention of the boy, who requests the girl to increase the volume on the radio. He is quite taken in with this ‘मस्त’ (catchy, engrossing) song. Coming close to the girl he takes her in his arms and they begin to dance to the tune. Their eyes meet. There is that oh so lovely pause in everything. Something tingles and connects. There is surprise and uncertainty on the faces of both of them. In the eyes, there is also an expectation of a liking that is so demure and endearing. It is one of those moments that feels like eternity. And yes, magic.

Till that ‘पाजी’ (scoundrel) mechanic barges in with a newspaper in hand announcing that the girl’s father is publicly searching for her. The moment of magic is so brutally broken.

The repeat song is the original. In this scene, somewhat less than two stanzas are played. Of course this is not listed in the songs of the film and does not appear on its cassette or CD. And so, in this post, I am retaining the original credits for this everlasting song.

And yes, once again, celebrating the anniversaries of the two of the greatest song-music creators in the Indian film industry. “Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke. . .” – goodness, what a fantastic tagline.

Song – Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke, Hum Se Kuchh Na Boliye  (Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin) (1991) Singers – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – SD Burman

Lyrics

hum hain raahi pyaar ke

hamne har tarah ke phool
haar mein piro liye
jo bhi pyaar se milaa
hum usi ke ho liye

Mitwa – 1

sun mere bandhu re…..
sun mere mitwaa….
sun mere saathhi re…. 

The Poet i.e. Majrooh further says:

hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
hotaa tu peepal,
main hoti amar lataa teri
tere galey maalaa ban ke,
padi muskaati re
sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re,
sun mere mitwaa
sun mere saathi re

The reference to peepal tree in the song is taking me to another memory of a long time ago.  The movie ‘Naseem’ seen a long time ago on TV.   I have looked up the info on this film on imdb (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0241753/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1).

It’s a movie alternately named ‘The Morning Breeze’.   Kaifi Azmi played the grandfather of the central pratogoist Naseem in the film and there is a dialogue uttered by him , which goes :  “Hamaare ghar ke aangan mein ek bahut puraana peepal ka ped thha.” 

This in turn is reminds of my own paternal grandfather, who was a staunch Gandhian and a Satyagrahi.  One of the lakhs of foot soldiers whose names do not appear in the list of those who fought for the independence of India.  He was participant in the Swadeshi movement and the Quit India Movement, in the tiny village in Belgaum District.  It is said the police came to the village looking for him, but his mother hid him in the sacks of food grains and thus he escaped arrest.  His name is ‘Meeran Saheb’ in the traditional way, people were named in that by gone era.  He was an avid reader of newspapers and lived in his own world, if he could help it.  Lived an idealistic and minimalistic life in the era of idealism with resources, available only to the extent of one’s needs for survival.  Wore only white Khadi Kurta-eezar with Gandhi topi, till the day he died.   It was his daily attire, be it someone’s wedding or Eid or whatever celebration or occasion.  New  clothes a must for Eid, normally he made do with 2-3 sets of clothes.  His life’s priorities were simple, news on radio and newspapers of Urdu, Marathi and Kannada.  My ‘Dada’ was not the only one to wear khadi as an uniform, there were others, his peers mostly who wore only white Khadi .

Another thing, I am more like my grandfather than anybody else.  It has been a decade or two, since anyone has called me “Meeran Saheb”, (the whole family and relatives on my mothers side used to call me that) but the memory is more pleasant now than it felt at that time 🙂 .

We are living in the times which are also good in some ways and bad in some ways.  There has never been a utopian era.  It exists in dreams and books of the visionaries.   There may be rare examples of near perfect society with peace, justice and prosperity existing in recorded history.  So we make the best of what we have and survive with our self-respect intact, the head held high and the values of humanity held close to the heart.   And what of hope?  Hope is always there and dreams are never in short supply.  One needs to keep faith and prayer on the lips for the Providence, who provides for one and all.

Ah…… here is the concept of providence.  Providence is the source of all that the creation needs and gets.  I did say in the comments of a post “Karta Hai Ek Raavi Ye Dilsooz e Bayaan“,  that I will try and explain the concept of ‘Ni’amat’ and ‘Barakah’.

Niamat for me is the belief system of Islam, i.e. Imaan, higher level of Imaan is Taqwa.  It is the belief in Allah (SWT – Subhanahu Wa Ta-A’la meaning All Praises For Him), his Prophets (PBUT – Peace Be Upon Them), his revelations and the day of Judgement i.e. Aakhirah.  It is a niamat that we have the ability to see, to hear and to speak.  The ability to breath and live.  The elements of nature like air,  water  and food which are life’s substance.  ‘Niamat‘ is also the word of Allah – his revelations in the form of aayats of the Quraan), sent down as guidance and warning.   Also that Allah (SWT) has promised to preserve his revelations i.e. the Quraan for mankind till the end of time.

Barakah‘ or ‘Barkat’ is that Allah (SWT) keeps providing for us these life substances, provides for all the universe, even for the smallest / minutest life forms to the giant creatures.  He keeps forgiving us and accepting our prayers. Listens to them and grants our wishes whatever is best for us.  For he knows what is best for us, we do not know.  He is the one who gave us the wisdom to be ‘saabir‘ (Patient) and ‘shaakir’ (thankful).  ‘Barakah‘ is again that the Almighty has given us pious parents and spouse and granted us children, with joy and contentment in life.  It is simple that if we learn to be ‘saabir and shaakir’ we will be content with our lot and life will be full of joy.   ‘Barkah’ is also increase of health, wealth and happiness.   It’s a blessing from the Almighty that we have the ability to understand all this and life’s philosophy. It is also the ability to give and to share.  The maturity to understand and accept that whatever worldly wealth, name, fame we have is given by the Almighty Allah and it is not ours, but we are the custodians.  He gives it in our custody so that we share the bountiful of worldly goods, this includes knowledge, among fellow beings.  It’s like a distribution chain.

Charity, I believe is nothing but the justification of our being blessed with health and wealth, in fact all ‘niamat‘ and ‘barakat‘.  Some are blessed more and others are blessed less (with health, wealth etc. in material terms). For both the types of people the blessings bestowed by God Almighty are a test, no less.  How they treat these blessings, how they react, and how they relate all this to the Almighty.  How thankful and grateful they are for these blessings.

From him, Allah (swt)  we came and to him we shall return.  We take with us only our deeds.  Here we come to good deeds and bad deeds.  What is to be remembered here again our deeds are what we do, how we treat our fellow beings in the world and how we behave in the world and what we cause as a result of our conduct, speech and behavior and deeds and how charitable or otherwise, we are. Essentially how much caring and sharing, we exercise in our life amount to our deeds here.  Mostly we might see there is the system of use and abuse going on around us.  We are part of the same system and involved in the same type of deeds.  But there is a thread of light all around us which shows the path of good, right and peace and justice. If we go forward looking for good than we will find  only goodness.

It’s a ‘Niamat‘ and ‘Barakah‘ that we have a belief in the ‘Day of Judgment’ too, all things considered.  Day of Judgement is when all our good deeds and bad deeds will be considered, and Allah (SWT) will grant us ‘Heaven / Paradise’ or  “Hell Fire”.  If humanity has this belief that we are answerable for all our deeds to a superior power, than this will stop it from committing all crimes and bad deeds, from smallest of bad deeds, like hurting someone with bad words, even.

See !  He is giving us, guidance, showing us the way of a pious, clean, spiritual and just life,  promising to preserve this book for us till the end of time, promising us rewards for the good deeds that we are able to amass, because of his naimat and barakah, in the hereafter.    So , which of the blessings, gifts and favours  given by our Lord and Master, are we going to deny ?

May Allah (SWT) grant us with the Baraakah for believing in the essential goodness of human nature.

This song from “Lagaan’ is a special one.  The song’s title is ‘Mitwa’, and every time I am looking for a celebratory song, this keeps coming to memory.  It is all about hope and spirit to win and overcome the difficulties in life, with strength and aplomb.  Javed Akhtar is the lyricist and AR Rehman is composer.  It is a group song which became a speciality of AR Rehman. The singing voices are Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder Singh and Srinivas.  This is one of my favourite songs by Udit Narayan, for the rally that he sang in the mukhdaa. There should be a category of ‘mitwaa‘ songs too, as there are many classic songs in the Golden era.  I have one more ‘mitwa‘ song in my sights for writing a post.  If I can find one more inspiring song in the category, will try to make a trilogy of posts on ‘Mitwaa”.

Meanwhile, the holy month of ‘Ramadhan’ has ended, with ‘Eid-ul-fitr’ also come and gone, I take this opportunity to wish everyone  Eid Mubarak, belatedly.  May Allah (SWT) grant your wishes and answer your prayers.

My Railway related reminiscences- 2
——————————————————————————————

Couple of days back, I discussed a song of 1991, with my reminiscences of Hyderabad/ Secunderabad, where I was based at that time. Those were the early days of my career and that was my first posting.

That post gave me an idea that I should discuss my experiences of my stays in various places of India during my career. When I began to think about my experiences of those days, many interesting memories came to the fore. So I thought that I should discuss those memories (alongwith movies that I saw at those places) in a series form. I decided to name this series “my reminisces in Railways”. The article accompanyng the 1991 song thus began the fist part of the series.

Secunderabad was my fist posting, but that was preceded by period of probation which was during late 1980s and early 1990s. Those were the days when we would visit various places in Indian Railways located all around the country and undergo “training”. I describe it as “training” and not training because very few people actually trained at these places. It was more like site seeing and getting a first hand experience of how to manage to travel in trains, often without confirmed reservations and often without any confirmed accomodations at the places of our “training.” Those experiences were the real learning experiences for us.

People would form small groups of a few probationers and would travel and “train” together. My group used to be the smallest possible, viz two of us. 🙂

Most of these trainings were of one or two weeks. At the end of the “training”, we would be interviewed by the head of that organisation and then we would get a certificate that we had successfully completed the training. We used to dread the interview and would hope that the head would spare us and give us the certificate without actually interviwing others.

One of these training programmes took us to New Katni junction. We were supposed to undergo training in Diesel shed there. After the end of two weeks, the most dreaded occasion, viz interview with the head of the diesel shed, arrived. The head, one Mr Marcus, a very strict disciplinarian, started to grill the two of us on what we had learnt about diesel locomotives. Both of us were largely clueless on the subject and so I hoped that interviewer would vent his frustration equally on the two of us. My groupmate, Suresh had managed to memorise a few buzz words of Diesel locomotives and I was not familiar with even those words. So, I was singled out by Mr Marcus and he gave me a mouthfull. Learn from Mr Suresh, he at least knows a few terms about Diesel locomotives, I was told.

Suitably chastened, I came out and resolved that I would actually take the training seriously in future. But it was a resolution that I could never keep. 🙂

But that experience gave me an important life and management lesson. When a tiger appears before a herd of deer, the deers need not outrun the tiger. They only need to ensure that they outrun the slowest deer among them. 🙂 The tiger would catch the slowest of the deers and the other deers would escape.

While most trainings were for small durations and they were for probationers in small groups, there were some centralised trainings in large groups and of longer durations in designated locations.

For example, all probationers of all services had to mandatorily undergo two trainings. The first was called “Foundation”” course and it was followed by “Induction” course. These courses would be of one month duration and they would take place at Railway Staff College, Vadodara.

The need for centralised training of Railway officers was first felt in 1920s in pre independence era and a “Railway Staff College” was established in Dehradun in 1930. Within two years, some senior Railway Man decided that training of Railway Officers was a luxury that Railways could ill afford and so that “Railway Staff College” at Dehradun was closed down. Its premises were sold to Army. The present day Indian Military Academy at Dehradun is located where the original “Railway Staff College” stood from 1930 to 1932.

Two decades later, it was once again realised that training of Railway officers was not a luxury but a necessity so Railway Staff College was again established. This time it was set up at Vadodara. Railways took Pratap Vilas Palace of Vadodara on lease in 1949. Subsequently Railways bought this premise outright in 1964.

The magnificent Pratap Villa Palace was designed by Charles Frederick Stevens in 1914. Readers may recall that Bombay VT was built by Frederick Williams Stevens in 1887, who was the father of Charles Frederick Stevens. I find it interesting that Charles Frederick Stevens, though an Englishman was named in Marathi-Gujrati manner, viz. Name of the person, followed by father name, followed by Surname. 🙂

The first principal of Railway Staff College, Vadodara was Mr P C Bahl, from 1952 to 1956. His son Lt Commander Rajnish Bahl of Indian navy married film actress Nutan.

It was in this Railway Staff College that I underwent my Foundation Course. There were around 40 probationers in the batch. They were accomodated in hostel rooms, two probationers in each room.

I had decided that I would take Foundation course seriously, and as a part of my seriousness, I chose a room partner who himself was a serious student. No, not the abovementioned Suresh, but another person named Rahul.

Vadodara was (it still is) a nice place. Classes were held in day time for five days a week. Saturday and Sunday were free.

We would typically go out to watch night show of movies in Vadodara after dinner time. It was on one such night that Rahul suggested that we should go watch a new movie called “Dil”(1990). This movie had two newcomers in lead roles. The hero was one Aamir Khan, who had made a successful debut with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” (1988). The leading lady was Madhuri Dixit, who had become an all India rage after the song “ek do teen” in “Tezaab” (1988).

We went for the night show of “Dil”(1990). We left our hostel at 9 PM and we were worried that we would be late for the show. But when we arrived there, we found that we were well in time. The previous show was still playing. We kept waiting and waiting. The earlier show ended after 10 PM. Our night show began at 10-30 PM, which is too late for a night show to start.

It was well past 1 AM when the show finally ended. In my younger days, I would remain wide awake and aware and would not miss any moment of the movie, not even newsreels and ads. But those days were in the past. I was feeling sleepy throughout the movie. So I missed much of the story and so I was not aware what was going on in the movie.

This movie “Dil” (1990) is not yet covered in the blog. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Udit Narayan and Anuradha Paudwal. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Milind.

The song is picturised on the lead pair of Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit, both looking so young and fresh faced vis a vis today. But then this movie had come three decades ago !

The song from the movie under discussion is titled “mujhe neend na aaye” , but it was a case of “mujhe neend hi neend aaye” for me in the movie hall in that show. 🙂

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 27
————————————————

Welcome all to today’s(6 april 2019) post in the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge Series’. The song I am going to present today is, by the standards of the blog, from a very recent movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. And this is the movie falling under ‘Blog 10-year challenge’ today on 06.04.20019.

On this day ten years ago (viz on 6 april 2009), Songs of following movies were posted on the blog:-

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’
‘Jawaan Mohabbat-1971’
‘Bin Baadal Barsaat-1963’
‘Baap Bete-1959’
‘Chhaliya-1960’
‘Chaand-1959’

All these movies except ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ have already achieved ‘Yippeeee’ed’ status on the blog. 🙂

If one look back at the years that have passed by after this movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released, almost ‘twenty-three’ years have elapsed since. Many things have happened during these twenty-three years in my life. I have been through many changes and shifting of places in my personal life during all these years.

My last post was about my stay at Kota-Rajasthan and my fond memories of that stay. My parents were staying at Parli Vaijnath at that time and my journey to home took thirty-six hours consisting of of train-bus-travel and transit time. The route I would take was Kota to Ratlam by broad gauge train. Ratlam to Purna junction or Indore junction, Indore to Akola and Akola to Parli Vaijnath by bus or Purna to Parli Vaijnath by train of South-Central railway.

Once I had even travelled the complete route by Bus. I travelled from Parli Vaijnath to Akola (seven hours). From Akola I took State Transport Bus for Indore (fourteen hours) and from Indore to Kota another state transport Bus (of MP) travelling almost eight hours.

I was a bachelor then. However, this travel and the journeys continued after my marriage and after having two daughters.

I was still at Kota Site when I got married. So, after that my wife was my co-traveller (:) ) and sometimes we were accompanied by my younger brother or my Father to support us in carrying our luggage. My elder daughter became a new member in our travelling team after her birth. In between my wife was alternatively staying with me for few months and them with my parents at Parli Vaijnath.

Finally, the project at Kota was completed in 1996 and I left for Phulpur-Allahabad leaving my family at Parli Vaijnath.

I reached Phulpur on 15th August 1996 and started there process of settling down there and began looking for a family accommodation so that I could bring my family to stay with me.

I was also doing my graduation through an ‘open university (IGNOU)’ then and did not want to change my study centre Kota. The next examinations were falling due in December and for that I was supposed to travel to Kota again. I attended my exams and took the same route to home via Indore. The Indore connection was important because I had my friends there whose friendship was cultivated by me during my stay at Kota as they were working there for a company from Indore.

I would meet my friends of Indore and spend some time with them. I often stayed at Indore for few days, visited nearby places of interests (tourists places) , some famous temples and watched a few movies also (and that might be a subject of an article in future 🙂 ) But this time, my plan was to visit Kota for my examinations and from there to go to Parli Vaijnath via Indore.

I took a luxury bus from Indore to Akola. This bus had video facility. Those were the days when many people among such bus travellers were quite keen to watch movies in Bus and they would even argue with the transporters if the video was not working. I was more interested in sleeping which was much needed for me because of the previous equally gruelling travel by road.

That day (or rather night) they played two movies back to back. One was ‘Ghatak-1996’ and other was ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. I watched some parts of these moving in my half-sleep half-awoke state. I liked some songs and some part of both movies. I don’t think I got to watch this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ again though I recall having watched ‘Ghatak’ again sometime later.

Both the movies were highly successful at the box-office and their music particularly of ‘Raja Hindustani’ was very popular. Both movies earned award nominations and won some of these awards as well.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was directed by Dharmesh Darshan for ‘Cineyug’. It was produced by Alive Morani, Karim Morani and Bunty Soorma. It had Amir Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Johny Level, Navneet Nishan, Veeru Krishnan, Kunal Khemu (child artist then), Pramod Moutho, Mohnish Behl, Tiku Talsania, Farida Jalal and Archana Puran Singh.

Story of this movie was written by Dharmesh Darshan. And he was co-author in writing the dialogues of this movie alongwith Javed Siddiqui.Editing of this movie was done by Bharat.

Lyrics of this movie were written by Sameer. And as per Wikipedia this movie had total eight songs including two multiple version song (where one song was having three versions).

Music of this movie was composed by Nadeem-Shravan. Whereas the background music was given by Surinder Sodhi.
Alka Yagnik, Alisha Chinai, Bela Sulakhe, Kumar Sanu, Sapna Awasthi, Sapna Mukherjee, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan have given their voices to the songs of this movie.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released (as per ‘wiki’) on 15th November’1996.

This movie had some very good soundtracks and as mentioned by Atul ji while posting the first song of the movie Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke
, couple of them were reminiscent of the music of the seventies.

When I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘ten-year challenge’, I promptly decided to take up the ‘challenge’. 🙂 I noted that this song has a female version to, and so it was a ‘multiple version’ song. I am sending our editors the lyrics for the female version of this song and requesting them to update the same in the post of this song.

Personally, I like this song Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke (both versions) very much. After watching this movie on that bus journey, this song was playing in my mind for the next few days. Another song “Kitna pyaara tujhe rab ne banaaya” was also very good.

And what to say about the song under discussion ! It was an enormous hit. This song was the highlight of the movie for many people.

The movie was inspired by ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile-1965’. If that 1965 movie had a “pardesi” song viz ‘pardesiyon se ankhiyaan milaana’, then ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ had ‘its own “pardesi” song, viz Pardesi Pardesi Jaana Nahin’- which is the song under discussion.

The ‘pardesi’ song from ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ was a multiple version song having three versions. Not to be left behind, this “Raja Hinustani” song also has three versions. This song plays important role in taking the story of the movie forward. Like when heroine’s father comes to know about his daughter falling in love with a taxi driver, then – when the hero-heroine are separated due to misunderstanding , with heroine’s stepmother sowing seeds of ‘conflict’ further and heroine is also pregnant at this time, and finally third time – in the end when all ends well and the hero and heroine are re-united.

During all those years I had forgotten that this song was a multiple version song with three versions, and the ‘challenge’ hence got compounded for me. I had to listen to this song many times during its drafting. Also, with the female version to the earlier song added this post serve a purpose of ‘four songs’ “)

In the Suresh Wadkar version of ‘pardesi pardesi jaana nahin’ the hero sings couple of lines which in one version is lip synced by the hero and in another version he lip-syncs in Udit Narayan’s voice. Credit for this third version also mentioned the name of Udit Narayan (as taken from ‘wiki’ page of this movie), I think that is correct. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this and correct please.

With today’s song on the blog plus addition of the female version to the earlier song this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ will have its five songs covered on the blog.

I know you are eager to listen this song again after so many years so without taking this article too long I am taking you to the song instead which itself is like an ‘epic song’. 🙂

To finish the tale, after reaching Parli Vaijnath, I travelled back to Phulpur, with my wife and daughter accompanying me, with my father also travelling with us to help us in getting settled at Phulpur.

We stayed at Phulpur for a few months, before it was time for my wife to rejoin my parents at Parli Vaijnath in what could be described as a “Pardesi pardesi jaana nahin” situation for me. 🙂

The first part of the song is sung by Sapna Awasthi (lip syncing by Kalpana Iyer), Alka Yagnik (for Pratibha Sinha) and Udit Narayan (lip synced by Aamir Khan).
Second version is sung by Kumar Sanu (on Aamir Khan) and Alka Yagnik (on Karishna Kapoor).
The movie ending third version is sung by Suresh Wadkar (for Johny Lever), Bela Sulakhe (for Navneet Nishan) and Udit Narayan (for Aamir Khan).

Let us now enjoy this wonderful, entertaining and rocking melodious 🙂 song.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 19
———————————————————————

मिले ना फूल
तो काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰ ॰ ॰

दस बरस पहले, एक सफर शुरू हुआ – एक सफर जिसका कुछ भी नियत नहीं था, कुछ निश्चित प्रयोजन नहीं था, कुछ आशा भी नहीं थी के ये सिलसिला जाने कब तक चले। बस सिर्फ एक धुन, और एक नग़मा – ले चला जिधर ये दिल निकल पड़े।

और साथ ये भी कह दिया कि मंज़िल कहाँ कहाँ रुकना है ऊपर वाला जाने॰ ॰ ॰

कुछ मालूम नहीं था ये सफर क्या शक्ल हासिल करेगा। क्या कोई हमसफर मिलेगा? मालूम नहीं, ये सोचा भी था के नहीं। लेकिन फिर भी क्या॰॰॰ एक ज़िंदगी का तार पकड़ कर चल दिये। और सोचा यूं कि चलते चलो चलता हुआ साहिल है ज़िंदगी। ये तो अच्छा किया कि दूर की सोची नहीं। अब तीन साल में क्या हो या पाँच सात साल में क्या होगा ऐसी हर फिक्र को धुएँ में उड़ाते हुये, बस एक दिन और एक गीत – इस क्रम पे चलना शुरू किया।

कहते हैं, जब कर्म और विचार में खोट नहीं, तो प्रकृति, दिशाएँ, तत्व, देव – सब कुछ ही साथ हो संबल देते है।  दस साल पहले जो सफर अकेले ही शुरू हुआ था, आज इन दस साल के बाद अब इसकी गिनती करोड़ों में होती है।  क्रम नहीं बदला, नीयत नहीं बदली – जो बदला वो बस यही के लोग साथ आते गये और कारवां बढ़ता गया।

दस साल बाद भी, आज कोई पूछे तो जवाब नहीं बदला – ये हँसता हुआ कारवां ज़िंदगी का न पूछो चला है किधर॰॰॰।

कितने पड़ाव आए और गुज़र गये, कितने ही मील पत्थर रास्ते में मिले और नज़रों से ओझल हुये।  इस सफर में हम कहाँ कहाँ से गुज़र गये – देस भी घूमा, दुनिया भी घूमी; सागर, नदियां, पर्वत, वादियाँ, जंगल और सैहरा, रास्ते और गलियाँ, पनघट और खलिहान, बाज़ार भी, मेले भी और अकेले भी – सब कोने छू लिए। कभी रेल में, तो कभी मोटर कार में, कभी घोड़े कि टापों के संग, तो कभी रिक्शे में। कभी बैल कि गाड़ी में घूमे, तो कभी तांगे के हिचकोले खाये। कशतियों में कभी झीलों का झरोखा, और कभी जहाज़ में समुद्र का दीदार किया। साइकल की सैर भी की, और कभी प्लेन से सारी धरती को देखा। और तो और, क्रेन, ट्रक और ट्रैक्टर को भी नहीं छोड़ा।

कभी हरी दर्शन को तड़पते मन देखे, कभी मदीने की दुआएं मांगी।  कभी बंजारों के गीत सुने, और तो फिर कभी सूफी के कलाम। बुद्ध कि शरण में गये तो कभी येशु के दर पे सर झुकाया। कभी सृष्टि के चित्रकार को ढूँढा, और कभी कर्म गति की शिक्षा सुनी। कभी शुक्राने फरमाए उस खुदा की बंदगी में, तो कभी ज़िंदगी से ऊब कर उसे खूब खरी खोटी भी सुनाई।

कभी किसी नाज़नीं से लहंगे कि फरमाइश सुनी, और कभी प्रेमी कि ज़ुबान से चाँद कि उपमाएँ। कभी बरसात ने दिल लुभाया, तो कभी बात बात में मैंने दिल तुझको दिया। कभी गर्मी की धूप से बचने की सलाह देखी, तो कभी बर्फ की सर्दी को दिल की आंच से कम होते देखा।

गोद में बच्चों को सुलाते हुये माँ कि लोरियाँ सुनी, तो कभी बच्चों से माँ के आँचल कि पुकार। नग़में सुने दोस्ती के और ग़ज़लें सुनी इश्क़ की।  मोहब्बत के जलवों से रोशन जन्नत के नज़ारे किए, तो कभी टूटे दिल के नालों ने हमें भी रुलाया।

कभी दिल मचला और झूम के गा उठा – किसान अपनी फसल देख के, फौजी छुट्टी पर घर जाते हुये, इक जवान दिल इश्क़ का इक़रार पा कर, और तो कभी बस इस कायनात की खूबसूरती पर।

कभी दिल रोया और रो कर गाया – भीख मांगते हुये बच्चे, कोई बिछड़ कर जाने लगा, कभी मोहब्बत के धोखे उठाए, और तो कभी किस्मत के थपेड़ों की शिकायत में।

कभी एक चोर की कहानी सुनी, कभी बिक्री वालों से उनकी उम्दा दलीलें सुनी, कभी मेहनतकशों की प्रेरणा भा गई, और तो कभी सड़क पे तमाशों के नज़ारे किए।

हुस्न की जल्वानुमाई देखि, तो कभी हुस्न के एहसान; कभी हुस्न की संगदिली ज़ाहिर हुई, तो कभी सिर्फ शिकवों का ज़िक्र हुआ। फ़लक पे सूरज चाँद और तारों की कहानी सुनी, तो कभी शराब की मस्ती शराबी की जुबानी सुनी।

फूलों से किसी कमसिन के चेहरे को मुक़ाबिल देखा, तो कभी किसी अल्हड़ की लापरवाह चाल से झरनों की उपमा हुई।

कसमें वादे होते देखे साँसों की हद तक, और कभी टूटे वादों के साथ दिल के टुकड़े बिखरते देखे।

कोई जश्न का मौका छूटा नहीं, कोई नाम अछूता रहा नहीं।

कभी धरती और देश के झंडे से बुलंद हुये, तो कभी इंसानी ज़ुल्म से हताश।

कभी शहीदों की कहानियाँ पलटीं, तो कभी भली आत्माओं का दर्शन किया।

सुख की घड़ियाँ, दुख के बादल; हंसी के लम्हे, आँसू की ढलकन; मिलने की खुशी, ना मिलने का ग़म; प्यार का झगड़ा, बेवफाई के ज़ख्म; बारात का बाजा, दिल का राजा; मंदिर का दीपक, खुदा से दुआएं; रिश्तों की संवेदना, और साथ ही वेदना; प्यार का फलसफा, और ज़िंदगी की तालीम।

कभी वो गीत में, कभी नज़्म में, कभी ग़ज़ल में, तो कभी भजन में, कभी ट्विस्ट में तो कभी डिस्को में; कभी क़व्वाली में, तो कभी सहगान में; कभी कविता जैसी लगी, तो कभी कथा जैसी; कभी तुम्हारी छवि दिखी, कभी उसकी; और तो ज़्यादा कहानी अपनी सी लगी।

दस साल। दस साल और पन्द्रह हज़ार उमंगें। रोज़ की नई नवेली। कभी लगता भी है कि पहले सुना था, लेकिन फिर भी लगता है नया सा। कितने सारे भावों की बरसात हुई है, क्या बेशुमार दौलत मिली है – दस साल में। नायाब खजाना है। और सोचो तो, शुरू कहाँ से किया था – “॰॰॰काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰॰॰”। मुनासिब ही तो है, ये दौलत काँटों से गुज़र के ही पाते हैं। और तमन्नाएं॰॰॰ उनका तो कहना ही क्या। कुछ मिल जाये, इसकी तो फिक्र कभी थी ही नहीं। बस एक ही बात, एक ही लगन॰॰॰ दिल चाहता है॰॰॰  साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

जी हाँ, दिल चाहता है। जब एक गाना ढूंढ रहा था इस जश्न के लिए, तो मन बहुत घूमने के बाद इस बात पे ठहरा कि एक सफरनामा होना चाहिए, एक गाना जिस में बस सफर हो, कोई मंज़िल न हो। जिसमें बस हमख्यालों का दख़ल हो। जो सब मेरे हमकदम हों, मेरे हमनशीं, मेरे हमज़ुबाँ हों। अपनी यादों और आदतों से वहीं ढूँढता रहा साठ और सत्तर से पहले। इत्तेफाक़ देखिये, मिला तो बखूबी वही जो दिल चाहता है। हाँ ‘दिल चाहता है’ – फिल्म भी वही और नग़मा भी वही। 2001 में जारी हुई ये फिल्म मेंने उन्हीं दिनों में अपने सफरगुज़ारी के दौरान देखी। न जाने क्यों, इस फिल्म से मोहब्बत हो गई। और खास कर के इस गाने से। हल्की सी मस्ती की लहर में हल्का सा ढुलकता सा गाना, सुस्ताता हुआ, आलसी सा गाना, धीरे धीरे बहता जैसे बहार में सुबह कि मीठी सी सबा॰॰॰ लापरवाही में एक प्रतिबिम्बित चिंतन॰॰॰ गाना तो ऐसे मन को भाया के बस।

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

होता है ना कभी कभी ऐसे ही। कुछ ऐसा कहा जाता है दो लफ्जों में, के और कुछ कहने की कसर बाकी रहती नहीं। जो बात मन की है, वो बस इतनी ही मुकम्मल है, जो ऊपर लिखे मिसरों में ब्याँ हो गई – तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

और कुछ कहना वाजिब नहीं।

इस फिल्म के ज़्यादातर किरदारों को पहली बार देखा था। बहुत सालों बाद एक हिन्दी फिल्म देखी थी शायद। मन को जम गई। 🙂

गीत जावेद अख्तर का लिखा है, संगीत बद्ध किया शंकर-एहसान-लोय कि तिकड़ी ने। गाने वाली आवाज़ शंकर महादेवन की है। स्क्रीन पर ये गाना बैक्ग्राउण्ड में फिल्माया गया। और क्या असरदार फिल्माया गया। गीत ही गीत सुनता है, बाकी सब खामोशी है। एक तुष्टि की, एक पूर्णता की खामोशी है। एक खुशी भरी सुस्ती की खामोशी है॰॰॰ जो दिल चाहता है वो मुझे मिला है॰॰॰ ऐसी खामोशी है

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस॰॰॰ सिलसिलेवार

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

And so I let it flow. In case there are requests, I can add the English translation also. Regarding the gap in celebration sequence, that story is coming up tomorrow. 🙂 ]

Lyrics

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai
kabhi na beeten
chamkeele din
dil chaahta hai
hum na rahen kabhi yaaron ke bin
din din bhar hon
pyaari baaten
jhoomen shaamen
gaayen raaten
masti mein rahe dooba dooba hamesha samaa
hum ko raahon mein yun hi milti rahen khushiyaan
dil chaahta hai
kabhi na beeten
chamkeele din
dil chaahta hai
hum na rahen kabhi yaaron ke bin

jagmagaate hain
jhilmilaate hain apne raaste
ye khushi rahe
roshni rahe
apne waaste
jagmagaate hain
jhilmilaate hain apne raaste
ye khushi rahe
roshni rahe
apne waaste

oo oo ooo
ooo ooo oo ooo ooo ooo
oo oo ooo

jahaan rukey hum
jahaan bhi jaayen
jo hum chaahen
wo hum paayen
masti mein rahe dooba dooba hamesha samaa
hum ko raahon mein yun hi milti rahen khushiyaan

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai

dil chaahta hai

kaisa ajab ye safar hai
socho to har-ek hi bekhabar hai
us ko jaana kidhar hai
jo waqt aaye
jaane
kya dikhaaye

din din bhar hon pyaari baaten
jhoomen shaamen
gaayen raaten
masti mein rahe dooba dooba hamesha samaa
hum ko raahon mein yun hi milti rahen khushiyaan

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन

मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ

कैसा अजब ये सफर है
सोचो तो हर एक ही बेखबर है
उस को जाना किधर है
जो वक़्त आए

Blog Day : 3670 Post No. : 14549

Happy Friendship Day (5 august 2018) to all Atulites.

It is has become a practice in recent times to celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August. So, I did a little reading up about it on the internet. The website of Indian Express gave me this:

First proposed in Paraguay in 1958, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared July 30 as the official International Friendship Day on April 27, 2011. But many countries, like India, celebrate it on the first Sunday of August. It all started when Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark cards proposed the celebrations in 1930. Before this, only greeting cards promoted the day and it was seen more as a gimmick. However, Nane Annan, the wife of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, declared the adorable bear Winnie the Pooh as the global Ambassador of Friendship at the UN in 1998. Every year, friends commemorate the day by exchanging gifts, greeting cards and going out for a get-together. Several restaurants, eateries and public spaces also, in their own way, celebrate this day and ensure that it is remembered by those who visit. There is also a common practice of exchanging bands among friends, as a token of their friendship. Friendship Day is for friends, those who stood by you when nobody did, and for those who had your back even in all the adverse situations. While we do celebrate the togetherness on other days too, isn’t it important to remember friends and have a dedicated to them?

So that then is what I found on the internet; that there is practice of exchanging bands, gifts and greeting cards and at the turn of the century it has become a huge commercial activity. For that matter everything is a commercial activity these days- Mother’s Day, Valentine’s day, Father’s Day etc.

I am meeting my “bachpan ke friends” this weekend and first time in all these years that we have met the meet is on Friendship Day. I am surely excited. This is the set of friends who know me from class 1. We are meeting to celebrate the 91st birthday of a person who was our teacher-cum-headmistress at school and I wouldn’t miss the event. We are expecting all her ex-students to congregate at our school. It sure is an emotional event. It has become all the more emotion-filled after another of our old teacher passed away last week at 92, and a friend of mine wrote a very nostalgic post of how she had groomed us, taught us arithmetic etc. It just jolted me that all those who mattered to us when we were growing up have also grown up, I don’t like to say GROWN OLD or AGED.

I was thinking whether there are any songs in Bollywood that show a loving teacher and her/ his students and I remembered: “Desh ka payara sab ka sahara kaun banega”; “bachchon tum taqdeer ho” etc. In recent years we had “Taare Zameen Par”. It had Aamir Khan play art teacher, who takes special care of Darsheel Safary, a student with Dyslexia, and helps him take the first step in overcoming his learning disability. The movie showed students of class 2 or 3 and the bonding between Darsheel and his classmate who has a physical disability. I am sure all of us would have had special friends in childhood and who we cared for fondly. Today we will have a song that is sung by Shaan and Aamir Khan, written by Prasoon Joshi and music is by Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy and Shailendra Barve.


Song-Bum bum bole (Taare Zameen Par)(2007) Singer-Shaan, Aamir Khan, Lyrics-Prasoon Joshi, MD-Shankar Ehsan Loy

bhala machhliyaan bhi kyun udti nahin

chalo chalo chalo chalo naye khwaab bun len

jo itni sundar hai apni duniya
uparwaala kya koi kalaakar hai
khul ke sochen aao

Today’s song is from a comparatively new film ‘Lagaan’ (2001). The song,written by Javed Akhtar and composed by AR Rahman, is sung by 5 singers, viz. Alka Yagnik, Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Sukhwinder Singh and Udit Narayan. Why do I feel some readers are smiling after reading my above sentence calling ‘Lagaan’ as a new film ? As compared to what my forte has been so far (old films from 1930s to 1970), ‘Lagaan’ IS a comparatively new film. . . at least for me !
