Blog Day : 3674 Post No. : 14561

6 August is remembered as Hiroshima day. It was on this day that in 1945 that Hiroshima became the first unfortunate city to be subjected to the dropping of Atom Bomb.

Three days later, on 9 august 1945, another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Kokura was the primary target, but that was obscured by cloud and smoke, so the secondary target of Nagasaki became the unfortunate victim of this second atom bomb, named ‘Fat Man’. The bomb exploded at 11:02 a.m. at an approximate altitude of 1,800 feet. 35, 000 people, nearly 15 % of the population of the city were killed.

These two bombings finally persuaded Japan to surrender and that signalled the end of second World war.

The destruction that Atom bombs could cause have led to consternation among many people. It also made some countries realise that they too needed to have atom bombs for their own safety (as a deterrence). Some countries developed the capabilities on their own while a few others did so by stealing nuclear technologies from other countries.

There have been calls to ban nuclear bombs. The first five nuclear bomb owning countries have formed their own exclusive club. Their rules are quite discriminatory. They can have their nuclear bombs, but other countries are prohibited to have them. Moreover, some of these nuclear powered countries keep on threatening others about using them. USA have threatened to use they atom bombs many times in the past. North Korea is well known to threaten its neighbours and even USA with its atom bomb. A few former Pakistani politicians used to threaten India with their atom bomb quite regularly.

To say that killing by atom bombs is bad but killing by normal bombs is not bad is hypocritical. If one looks at people killed during “normal” bombing, then more people were killed by “normal” bombing of Tokyo on 10 march 1945 than were killed by either of the two atom bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Likewise more people have been killed by AK 47 rifles than by Atom bombs. So ultimately the call should be to end violence by banning all kinds of weapons. It is not that atom bombs should be banned but “normal” weapons should be used with impunity. In fact, defence industry is a thriving industry where suppliers often sell the same weapons to two warring nations. There are some countries that spend more money on their military than for the development of their people.

“Aman”(1967) is a movie that deals with the subject of atom bomb and its effects on the victims. “Rajendra Kumar is a doctor who volunteers to go to Japan to help survivors of the Hiroshima-Nagasaki atomic blasts. The film deals with his experiences in Japan, the physical and mental effects of the atomic explosions on the survivors, and so on.”- This is what Raja wrote about this movie while covering a song from the movie.

Though the movie covers a serious and sobering topic, a Hindi movie cannot help having its share of songs. “Aman”(1967) had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

The song, the seventh and final song from the movie is sung by Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. The song speaks about the barbaadi of Hiroshima. Today is 9 august 2018, and atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on 9 august 1945, exactly 73 years ago.

With this sobering song, “Aman”(1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Barbaad hiroshima ki tasweer dekh lo (Aman)(1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

barbaad hiroshima ki tasweer dekh lo
aa aa aa
aa aa
insaan ki sabse badi takseer dekh lo
aa aa aa
is atomi bala ka hai pahla shikaar hum
rang e bahaar thhe kabhi
ab hain gubaar hum
aa aa aa
insaan ke is gunaah se aakash jhuk gaya
thha waqt jis jagah pe
bas wahin pe ruk gaya

ye haath kate paanv kate jhoolte dhaanche
aa aa aa
in dhaancho mein hum jaise hi insaan dhale thhe
aa aa aa
maao ki muskuraati god khaali ho gayi
poonam ki raat bhi suna hai kaali ho gayi
aa aa aa
kehti hai hiroshima ki basti pukaar ke
gujro na tum main gujri hoon jis rahgujaar se

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

Disclaimer: If I appear to be even more incoherent in this post than I usually am (and that would be quite an achievement!), blame it on Saira Banu. 🙂 The line that comes to mind is “Kya kya na sahey hum ne sitam aap ke khaatir”. 🙂 Further explanation in the post.

Few people today remember this movie called “Aman” (1967). It must have been a huge flop for this movie to end up like this considering that the movie had big names in it. Rajendra Kumar and Saira Bano were leading names during those days and Shankar Jaikishan were the biggest names in music direction those days. But all these big names could not rescue this movie.

I had not even heard about this 1967 movie called “Aman”. Now I am aware of this movie, mainly because of a song from this movie.
