Hullo Atuldom

I am super charged as I sit to write this post. I don’t know how to express my SURPRISE that the songs of this movie are yet to appear on the blog. I made a quick call to Atulji to confirm that this movie has not yet made its debut. I was making sure that it doesn’t appear under any other spelling. Atulji said that he is aware that it is yet to debut, so let us have it.

This 1980 release is a fantasy film based on a story from the Arabian Nights. Something that every child would have grown up reading, hence I am refraining from giving the story/ synopsis. I shall just say that this film had a generous dose of romance and romantic songs along with good quality action scenes. The film was an Indo-Soviet joint venture with the Uzbek director Latif Faiziyev and Indian director Umesh Mehra directing a set of Bollywood stars/actors and some Russian, Caucasian and Central Asian actors. Anand Bakshi and RD Burman were in charge of the songs that are popular till today and only three singers were used- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Before I present the song I would like to go into flashback with this song. That was to wish the actor Prem Chopra on his birthday. In there I had mentioned how his pairing with Rajesh Khanna was sure formula for success in the early 70s- he appeared in 19 movies as a co-actor of Rajesh Khanna.

Another actor with whom he was acceptable to the audiences was Dharmendra with whom he has appeared in around 30 films.

There are other actors with whom he has been regularly appreciated with and has done sizeable number of films – like 16 with Manoj Kumar, 24 with Amitabh Bachchan. I would like to know the count of films that Prem Chopra appeared, with respect to other prominent actors like Dev Anand, Jeetendra, Feroz Khan, Sunil Dutt, Rishi Kapoor etc. I know for sure that he has acted in 4 movies with his idol Dilip Kumar.

In my post of the 23rd September 2018, I had also mentioned how there were numerous songs where the heroines will sing love songs with the characters played by Chopra in order to get a response from the hero. Today’s song is similar to Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972) with a minor difference. Here we have the heroine dancing to the tunes of the hero. The ultimate aim being to rescue the girl from her predicament and an unwanted marriage with the wily Shamsher (Prem Chopra). Here the hero Alibaba (Dharmendra) has come as a Jadugar and has promised Shamsher that he will do some ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and get Marjina (Hema Malini) agree to his marriage proposal. For starters, the Jadugar gets Shamsher to dance and Marjina stands like a statue. But when she sees her lost ‘paayal’ (called ‘ghungroo’ in the song) she recognizes the Jadugar and joins him in the song-n-dance routine.

I have read in one of Prem Chopra’s interviews in the past, that he is scared of snakes and that he was petrified to shoot this song as the last stanza has a snake appearing out of nowhere. So possibly the priceless expression that he has given was not acting.

Prem Chopra has been a great supporting actor for almost 61 years. He began his career with a Punjabi film in 1960, followed by brief roles in ‘Hum Hindustani’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ etc. ‘Shaheed’ along side Manoj Kumar can be said to be his breakthrough film. ‘Upkaar’ and ‘Do Raaste’ also need to be mentioned as they presented him with different types of characters in spite of being Gray-shaded.It is well-known that he is connected to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife and Raj Kapoor’s wife were sisters so that also makes him a brother-in-law to Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath and Narendra Nath.
Here is wishing this Tall and Handsome actor on his 86th birthday good health and lots of happiness.

Presenting ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’ (1980) on the blog, with this song, which I have written without hearing the video. After writing the lyrics I heard the song and found one error in what I had noted. I found that in all these years (41 years) I was singing this one line bas hadd kar di o bedardi wrong.


Song-Jaadugar jaadoo kar jaayega(Alibaba Aur 40 Chor)(1980) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

It can be seen from the table of 1998 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 11 songs in 4 movies released in 1998.

Two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1998 have been covered in the blog. All songs from one movie “Dil Se”(1998)- a grand total of one Lata Mangeshkar solo song, has been covered in the blog. So 9 songs from 3 movies of 1998 sung by Lata Mangeshkar are yet to be covered in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dushman”(1998) is the first movie of 1998 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dushman”(1998) was inspired from Hollywood movie “Eye for an eye”(1996). It was produced by Pooja Bhatt and directed by Tanuja Chandra for Pooja Bhatt Productions, Bombay. The movie had Kajol(in dual/double role), Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, Tanvi Azmi, Jas Arora,Pramod Moutho, Kunal Khemu, Pratima Kazmi, Anupam Shyam,Vani Tripathi, Amardeep Jha, Rahul Singh, Vishesh, Sanjeev Vatsa,Robin Bhatt, Pinky Singh, Omkar Singh, Baby Varsha, Naresh suri,Master Vishal,Dinesh Chaturvedi,Krishna Bhatt, Savita Karle, Varsha Lalwani, Javed Rizvi, Narendra Sachar etc in it.

The movie had 9 songs in it. Five of these songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in it.

One song (a Lata Mangeshkar duet song) has been covered in the past.

Here is another song from the movie. It is a multiple version song. Female version is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and male version by Jagjit Singh. Male version also has humming by Lata Mangeshkar, so it can even be considered a duet. In case we consider a duet then it would become the first ever Lata-Jagjit Singh duet in Hindi movies. Here I have considered it as a duet.

Lata Mangeshkar version is a background song which is picturised on Tanvi Azmi, Kajol, Baby Varsha, Jas Arora etc.

Only audio of the Jagjit Singh (with Lata Mangeshkar humming) is available.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is from “Zameen Ke Taare” (1960) not to be confused with the modern day “Taare Zameen Par” (2007). Both the movies had children as center of the movies. But that is where the similarities end.

“Zameen Ke Taare” had a cast of Daisy Irani, Honey Irani, Motilal, Achala Sachdev, Prem Kumar, Kiran Kumari, Anwar Hussain, Kumud Tripathi, Tun Tun, etc. I think Mumtaz and Jayshree T. too were in the movie as child actors. It was directed by Chandulal Shah and produced by Navinchandra Shah for Chandra Movies. It had music by S. Mohinder and songs were written by Tanveer Naqvi, Pandit Indra and Anand Bakshi. The movie had Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and Mohd Rafi as playback singers. It had eight songs of which the blog has the following three.

Song Date of posting
Tinke pe tinka chhutti ke din ka 2 June 2011
Deep gagan ke tum ho 29 November 2016
O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron 8 september 2020

The last song posted (O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron) had a post by Nahmji. It was an attempt to combine the birthdays of the singing legend Asha Bhonsle and music director of yesteryears S. Mohinder. Almost like what I am attempting with this post. And just like Nahmji, I also realized that the composer of the ’50s and ’60s passed away last September on the 6th, two days before he would have turned 95. I read through this news item which was written by Kushal Gopalka. It gave me a lot of knowledge about the music director of such popular songs as ‘Guzara hua zamaana aata nahi dobaara’ from the 1956 release ‘Shirin Farhad’. If I had not read that article I would not have known that I have heard songs tuned by him and enjoyed them.

Today’s song has the child actors Daisy Irani (Mangoo) and Honey Irani (Tingu) lip-syncing to Asha Bhonsle and Sudha Malhotra. This sweet and cute sounding song is penned by Anand Bakshi. The kids Mangoo and Tingu are on a trip in quest of Bhagwan because they have been told that their mothers have gone to “Bhagwan ka ghar”. In the course of their travels they come in contact with a number of people who provide them with diverse answers about where to find Bhagwan. The songs of the movie are set around these incidents. Rather interesting movie, I managed to see part of it in my quest of locating the actors mentioned in the cast.

With this post I wish my favourite singer Asha Bhonsleji on turning a year older. May she have a healthy and lovely life and may we have the pleasure of hearing her for some more years.


Song-Chunnu patang ko kehta hai kite (Zameen Ke Taare)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-S Mohinder

Lyrics

football match mein jeeta hai maine cup

oont ne chidiya ko kar liya catch

arre bolo beta tingu ye sachch hai ya jhoot
jhooth jhooth jhooth

ek tamasha maine dekha mere meet
paan khaake ek chooha gaa raha tha geet
ooohoo ooohoo
ek tamasha maine dekha mere meet
paan khaake ek chooha gaa raha tha geet

paas baithi billi tabla rahi thi peet
bolo beta tingu yeh galat hai ya theek

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from the 1982 release “Raaste Pyaar Ke”. It was directed and produced by V B Rajendra Prasad; essentially meaning it was a South Indian production house. It was a remake of a Telugu hit of the ’70s. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal, SP Balasubramanyam, Kishore Kumar were the singers used.

The movie had six songs of which the folllowing two are on the blog:

Song Date of posting
Ye waqt na kho jaaye 4 June 2012
Tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe laambe raaste pyaar ke 10 October 2020

The cast had Shabana Azmi-Rekha-Jeetendra as the main protagonists and Utpal Dutt, Shaukat Kaifi (mother of Shyama- Shabana Azmi), Parikshit Sahni, Ashalata (bhaiyya and bhabhi to Mohan- Jeetendra), Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Nadira (uncle and aunt of Mohan and Sohan). Then we had Om Puri (playing a good friend to Gauri- Rekha), Yunus Parvez, Mazhar Khan, Baby Khusboo (niece to Mohan) also in the movie. The post by Nahmji gives a general idea about the film’s story.

The festival season has begun with the arrival of the months of Aashaada, Shraavan and Bhadrapada. We had Raksha Bandhan, Nariyal Purnima and a few other festivals last weekend. This week it is Gokulashtami/ Krishnashtami/ Janmashtami; call it by any name but we are celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna who is said to have been born on the night of Ashtami (eighth day) after the full moon.

Lord Krishna was born when his parents were held captive by his uncle in Mathura. But at the particular hour, when the Lord was born, the guards, miraculously, were fast asleep. This gave time to Vasudev (the lord’s father) time to transport the new-born across the river Yamuna to Gokul to foster parents Nanda and Yashoda. It was raining heavily that night. He is said to have been transported in a wicker basket with the multiheaded serpent- Vasuki shielding the baby from the rain. So the next day after Janmashtami can be described as Gokulashtami. There are many legends of the lord which are related with great relish by generations of devotees. Stories about how he loved to play pranks on the Gopikas of Brindavan and played Raas-Leela with them, ate freshly churned butter with relish, his friendship with Sudama etc. and many more were bed-time stories that grandparents told their grandkids.

Coming back to the celebrations associated with the festival, different regions of the country celebrate it differently. Even the prasad (offerings to the lord) differs region to region. But the offerings will definitely have preparations of Poha (beaten rice), butter and curds. It is said that these three are most loved by the lord. Then there are devotees who keep whole night vigil praying and singing bhajans and distribute prasad around midnight. They bathe and decorate their idols of the lord, dress him up and put the Balgopal in tiny cradles and pull the cradles with ropes of flower garland.

Today’s multi-singer (Asha- Usha- Kishore) song has Mohan playing a KRISHNA with Shyama, Gauri and their friends; there are ropes of flower garland, flute, mor-mukkut etc. That is the reason for me presenting this song today where the words are for lord Krishna and sung for Mohan the bachpan ka friend (childhood friend) of Shyama and Gauri.

It can be seen from the table of 1995 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 8 songs in 4 movies released in 1995.

1 song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1995 has been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 7 songs from 4 movies of 1995 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) is the first movie of 1995 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Aditya Chopra for Yashraj Films, Bombay. The movie had Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher, Kajol, Shahrukh Khan, Parmeet Sethi, Mandira Bedi, Karan Johar, Satish Shah, Achala Sachdev, Himani Shivipuri, Pooja Ruparel, Lalit Tiwari, Damayanti Puri, Hemlata Deepak, Arjun Sablok, Anaita Shroff, Pallavi Vyas, Tulika Tripathi, Rajesh Bhatija, Shanker Iyer, Mohit Kumar, Govind Khatri,Mansoor Merchant, etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them. Two songs from the movie, including One Lata Mangeshkar song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second Lata Mangeshkar song from “Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge”(1995) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jatin Lalit.

The song is lip synced by Kajol. But before that, the song also shows Shahrukh Khan playing Rugly in England. Overall, the song showcases picturesque locations and sites of England. Farida Jalal and Karan Johar are also visible in the picturisation.

This youthful joie de vivre song is picturised on a 20 year old Kajol (Born 5 August 1974). Lata Mangeshkar at that time was thrice her age ! Lata Mangeshkar had in the past sung for Kajol’s mother (Tanuja). She reputedly even sang for Kajol’s grandmother Shobhana Samarth (or at least sang in a movie – Narsinh Avtaar -1949, where Shobhana Samarth was the leading lady). What longevity ! And she managed to sound youthful even at a age when she was already a senior citizen !

Blog Day :

4772 Post No. : 16521

While we in this blog discuss songs, we also discuss other topics of common interest, like sports (mainly cricket), festivals, history, economy etc.

Tokyo Olympics concluded a few days back. As Indians, we had lots of sporting events to look forward to. Indians were participating in many events. Indians had pinned hopes of medals on quite a few of them, seeing that some of them were actually ranked world number 1, 2, 3 etc in their sports and they were given similar seedings too in the Olympics. But most of these sportspersons disappointed.

On the other hand, there were a few who performed beyond their rankings and managed to win medals. India won a medal (silver) on the very first day of the Olympics. First three medals were won by female athletes. Later, males too joined in winning medals.

Icing on the cake arrived on 7 August 2021, the last day of Olympics. The final medal that India won in these games happened to a track and field medal. It was the very first time that India won a track and field medal. And it turned out to be a GOLD medal, no less !

This gold medal event was in men’s javelin throw. Indians had never taken so much intetest in an atheletics event before this Olympics. I was one of those who followed the event closely. Since India actually won the gold, I dug deep and got all the relevant details of this competition. In this article, I present my findings, which is basically a description of How the Javelin Gold was won in Tokyo Olympics.

There were 32 javelin throwers in the competition. They were divided into two groups, viz Group A and group B, each consisting of 16 athletes.

In the qualification round, each javelin thrower was given three attempts in which to achieve the qualifying marks of 83. 5 meters. Based on the performances, 12 javelin throwers were to qualify for the finals.

In case less than 12 javelin throwers achieved the qualification mark, then the remaining slots were to be filled from those who had hurled the javelin the farthest among the non qualifiers.

Only six javelin throwers (three from group A and three from group B) were able to achieve direct qualification by throwing the javelin beyond 83.5 meters. Here are the details of these six direct qualifiers.

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
Neeraj Chopra (India) 1 (86.65 m) 86.65 m 1 1
J Vetter (Germany) 3 (82.04 m,82.08m, 85.64 m) 85.64 m 2 2
Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 2 (78.50 m, 85.16 m) 85.16 m 1 3
Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 3 (79.27, 78.96 m, 84.93 m) 84.93 m 2 4
L Etelatalo (Finland) 1 (84.50 m ) 84.50 m (SB) 3 5
Julian Weber (Germany) 1 ( 84.41 m) 84.41 m 3 6

Only six javelin throwers could gain direct qualifications. There were six more slots of finalists to be filled. Those six non qualifiers who threw the javelin the farthest were picked to fill the remaining slots. Following six javelin throwers thus gained indirect qualification for the final:-

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
A M Novac (Romania) 3 (83.27 m, 80.90 m, x) 83.27 m (SB) 4 7
V Vesely (Czech) 3 (x, 83.04 m, x) 83.04 m (SB) 5 8
Alaksei Katkavets (BLR) 3 (81.08 m, 81.73 m, 82.72 m) 82.72 m 4 9
Andrian Mardare (Moldova) 3 (80.69, 78.95 m, 82.70 m) 82.70 m 5 10
Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 3 (x, 82.17m, 82.64 m ) 82.64 m 6 11
Kim Amb (Sweden) 3 (82.40 m, 79.87, x ) 82.40 m (SB) 7 12

Thus four javelin throwers from group A and two from group B gained indirect qualification for the final. Remaining 20 javelin throwers (9 from group A and 11 from group B ) were eliminated.

The qualifying mark of 83.50 m does not appear too daunting for the competitors on paper, seeing that the personal best throws of most competitors, including those who failed to qualify was well over 83.5 meters. Some of the non qualifiers in fact had hurled the spear well over 90 m in the past. Some of them were past Olympic medal winners and world champions as well. Those who failed to qualify for the final included Walcott Keshorn (Trinidad and Tobago)-2012 Olympics gold medalist (90.16 m personal best), Julius Yego (Kenya)- 2016 Olympics silver medalist (personal best of 92.72 m), Cheng Chao Tsun (Taipeh)- Asian record holder with 91.36 m throw, Peter Anderson (Grenada)-current world champion (personal best 87.31 m) etc.

But World class sports is played on the field and it depends on performance on the day. Past records and achievements count for little. It is the three throws in the qualifying competition that determine who goes ahead to the finals and who get eliminated. Only six javelin throwers gained direct qualification. The six javelin throwers sneaked in as indirect qualifiers. The last qualifier who qualified could only hurl the spear to a distance of 82.4 meters, more than one meter behind the qualification mark.

Indians were cautiously optimistic about the chances of Neeraj Chopra because his performance during the current season vis a vis the performance of other leading contenders suggested that he was a medal contender.

Many leading contenders were eliminated after the qualifying round. The biggest gold contender was J Vetter of Germany, who had a season’s best of 97. 76 meters achieved in July 2021. But he too was on the verge of elimination in the qualifying stage, before he survived by crossing the qualifying mark on his third and final throw. Neeraj Chopra of India gave Indians a pleasant surprise by easily qualifying on his very first throw, and that throw was the longest throw of the qualifying stage. Thus he qualified as number 1 qualifier among the 12 qualifiers for the final. Vetter qualified as number 2. Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem qualified at the third place, and Pakistanis suddenly found something to look forward to in the Tokyo Olympics.

The timings of sports telecast of Tokyo Olympics suited India perfectly. The telecast would beging early morning iST and would continue till late evening. Javelin throw finals were scheduled on Saturday 7 August 2021. Unlike the qualifiers, the finals were at night time. It was in the afternoon in India.

The rules for the finals were that all 12 throwers would be given three throws each. The first eight contenders after these three throws would get another three throws each. The throwers would then be ranked based on their best throws.

When the competition began, I took pen and paper and began to note down the throws of the participants. During the first three throws, the sequence of throwers was arbitrary (or so it seemed to me). The number 10 qualifier (Adrian Mardore) threw first followed by Neeraj Chopra (number 1 qualifier), then number 12 qualifier (Kim Amb) followed by number 7 (A M Novak) etc. The first three throws of the twelve throwers in the sequence in which they threw was noted down by me in a table like this :-

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Best throw (m) Standing after three throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 82.84 Eighth
2 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 87.58 First
3 Kim Amb (Sweden) 77.22 78.31 79.69 79.69 Eleventh
4 A M Novac (Romania) 77.03 79.29 x 79.29 Twelfth
5 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 85.44 Second
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 85.30 Third
7 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 83.28 Seventh
8 J Vetter (Germany) 82.52 x x 82.52 Ninth
9 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 84.62 Fourth
10 Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 82.28 79.35 78.13 82.28 Tenth
11 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 83.98 Fifth
12 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 83.71 Sixth

After the first three throws, bottom four throwers were eliminated. J Vetter, the world record holder and the overwhelming favourite for the gold, had just one legal throw in his first attempt. That throw of 82.52 m kept him in the fourth position till the second round. But he fouled his third round and as many as five throwers threw longer than his 82.52 m in their third attempts. These five throwers advanced, and Vetter was relegated to the ninth position after third round. Thus he was among those four who were eliminated after round three. It was a big upset. The other three people who were eliminated threw lesser distances than what they had thrown during the qualifying stage, and their elimination was no surprise.

The remaining eight contenders then hurled three more throws in the ascending orders of their standing after three throws, viz the person eighth in the standing threw first and the person standing first threw last.

Here are the throws of the eight javelin throwers in the order in which they took their fourth, fifth and sixth attempts.

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Fourth throw Fifth throw Sixth throw Best throw (m) Standing after six throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 81.90 83.30 81.09 83.30 Seventh
2 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 79.20 79.99 83.05 83.28 Eighth
3 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 79.24 x x 83.71 Sixth
4 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 82.86 86.67 (SB) x 86.67 Second (SILVER)
5 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 82.91 81.98 x 84.62 Fifth
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 83.10 85.15 75.72 85.30 Fourth
7 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 (SB) x 84.98 x 85.44 Third (BRONZE)
8 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 x x 84.24 87.58 First (GOLD)

One can see that six out of eight throwers who were eligible for three additional throws failed to improve upon their best attempts achieved during the first three attempts. There were just two throwers who achieved their best during the fourth, fifth and sixth attempts. They climbed up the rankings and affected the rankings of those whom they overtook.

Adrian Mardore of Moldova, who was eighth after three throws achieved his best throw of 83.30 m in his fifth attempt. With this throw, which was 2 cm better than the best throw of seventh placed Lassi Etelataro of Norway, climbed up to seventh position, relegating Lassi Etelataro to the eighth position in the final standing.

The other thrower who gave his best during the final three throws changed the higher standings in a major way. Jakub Vadlejch of Czech republic had managed just one legal throw during his first three attempts, but that throw was far enough to keep him in top 8. In his fifth attempt, he hurled the javelin to a distance of 86.67 m. It was season’s best performance for him, just like his throw during the qualification stage was his season’s best. With this throw, he climbed upto the second position. Athletes, who were occupying second, third and fourth position were pushed one place down as a result. So, his compatriot Vitaly Vesely, who too had thrown his season’s best throw in the final, had to be content with the bronze. Julian Weber of Germany, who too had achieved season’s best throw in the final, was fourth. Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan, ended up fifth.

One can see that Neeraj Chopra of India led from the front and he was never threatened for the gold. It all sounds so easy with the benefit of hindsight, but it was obviously not as easy at it looks like. In a country known for missing opportunities, allowing opportunities to slip away, choking at the last moment etc, it was such a refreshing change to see an Indian performing like a seasoned pro, grabbing the contest by the scruff of its neck and not allowing others a sniff of a chance. He qualified for the final in just one throw, ending up at number one among all qualifiers. In the final, his first two throws were longer than the throws of all other competitors and so he had sealed his gold in his first two throws itself. It looks so easy if you have a talented sportsman representing you. In reality, it was the very first time that an Indian was winning a Track and Field medal in an Olympics.

Indians would have settled for medal of any hue, even bronze, as their first track and field atheletics medal. The fact that it was a gold has immense significance. European nations keep winning track and field golds, and that changes nothing, but a solitary track and field Gold won by an India will change the fate of atheletics in India, and elsewhere. Let us not forget, even today India is world’s fifth biggest economy. If Indians take to atheletics with the same vengeance with which they take to cricket, then atheletics worldwide will get more popular than what it already is because one sixth of world population lives in India. We have already seen what happened to cricket in India (and worldwide) when India won ODI world cup in 1983, and later T20 World cup in 2007. I can foresee a situation when an atheletics revolution will take place in India in near future.

Those who think that this medal is one off and the normal service will resume after that, I disagree. THis event has changed Indian sports for ever. I can cite an Indian example to prove my point. India was a very weak chess playing nation till 1970s, that too when Chess was a game that originated in India. It was belived that Indians can never become chess grandmasters. It was in 1988 that India had her first chess grandmaster (Vishwanathan Anand). This event popularised chess in India as never before. Vishwanathan Anand went on to become five times world champion, and India today had 69 grand masters in chess. Chess too has an Olympics, called Chess Olympiad, played every two years. How many of us know that India at present is joint world champion in Chess Olympiad (with Russia)! All this had happened in a matter of three decades. I see a similar thing happening in Athletics. Indian economy and market can easily support and sponsor this forthcoming athletics revolution in India.

If one looks at the medal tally of various nations in Olympics, one will find that the medal tally in a way is a refection on the economic development of a nation. The top ten nations in the medal tally are major economies. Most are high income nations and others are just one rung below, viz Middle income group nations. Sporting prowess in a way has some definite correlation with HDI (Human development Index) of a country. There are some notable exceptions (viz some African nations), but otherwise economical development leads to overall betterment in sporting achievements. Hopefully, India too will join the ranks of top medal winners two to three decades from now, like how India has already become a top chess playing nation, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Russia, USA and other chess superpowers.

What is the medal tally that India achieved in Tokyo Olympics ? One gold, two silvers, four bronze. One two ka four, four two ka one. Hindi movie “Ram Lakhan” had already created a song for this occasion, as far back as in 1989, when Vishwanathan Anand was India’s sole chess grandmaster !

Here is this popular song of its time. It is sung by Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Nitin Mukesh and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and others as a dance song.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is a melody from the late ’90s. It is from “Dushman” (1998) which was produced by Pooja Bhatt & Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Tanuja Chandra. It was well received by the critics and masses. It had a cast of Kajol (in a double role) with Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, Tanvi Azmi, Jas Arora, Pramod Moutho, Naresh Suri etc. Kunal Khemu played a 11 year-old helper of the blind ex-serviceman played by Sanjay Dutt. The movie had nine songs (two songs have two versions) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Uttam Singh.

It was the story of a pair of twins- Sonia and Naina, and a sadistic serial killer Gokul (Ashutosh Rana). Gokul rapes and kills Sonia (Kajol). Naina is shaken, and distraught and vows to avenge her death. In this she seeks the help of Suraj Singh Rathod (Sanjay Dutt), a blind military veteran. Naina (Kajol) trains under him and overcomes her fear of the serial killer. And in the process falls in love with the blind Suraj. Today’s song is a romantic duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kumar Sanu.

“Dushman” as a movie title was used in 1939, 1957, 1971, 1990 and 1998. The first three ‘Dushman’/s are already on the blog and Yyiippeeeed too.

Today we are having the 1998 “Dushman” making it’s debut on the blog on the occasion of Kajol turning a year younger.

The first post that the blog had to wish Kajol on her birthday was by Rajaji. He had posted a very melodious song from “Udhaar Ki Zindagi” (1994).

Kajol is one actress who is a “chip-off-the old-block” and has a lineage that has actors and filmmakers as grand parents (paternal and maternal) that starts with Sashadhar Mukherjee, and Shobana Samarth. Her mother Tanuja, aunt Nutan and cousins are all actors. Kajol herself is very versatile and has been awarded the Filmfare for best actress in a negative role for “Gupt” in 1997. She is also married into a Bollywood family-her husband is the actor/director/producer Ajay Devgan.

Here is wishing Kajol Happy Birthday and all the best in life and work.

Lyrics

pyaar ko ho jaane do,
pyaar me..ae..aen kho jaane do
aitba..aa..ar kiska hai,
inteza..aa..ar kiska hai
abhi na huwa toh phir kabhi nahin kabhi nahin
pyaar ko ho jaane do,
pyar mein kho jaane do
aitba..aa..ar kiska hai,
inteza.aa..ar kiska hai
abhi na huwa toh phir kabhi nahin kabhi nahin

pyaar ko ho jaane do o

pyaar ke beech mein
hum nahin aayenge
jis taraf le chala dil
chale jaayenge
chain sa aa gaya aa
yoon laga dil gaya aa
abhi na gaya to phir kabhi nahin kabhi nahin
pyaar ko ho jaane do

mujhko aankhon se dil mein utar jaane do
kuchh bigad jaane do
kuchh sanwar jaane do
ik bahaana bane ae
ik fasaana bane ae
abhi na bana to phir kabhi nahin kabhi nahin
pyaar ko o o
ho jaane do o o

aajkal phir kabhi
phir kabhi baad mein
baat reh jaayegi
yaad hi yaad mein

ho jo nahin hai kahaa
jo nahin hai kiya
abhi na kiya to phir kabhi nahin kabhi nahin
la la laa laa

laa la laa(hmm hmm hmm)
la la laa laa laa la laa
la la laa laa laa la laa

Hullo Atuldom

Choosing a song for today’s post was not so easy. We are celebrating our beloved Kishore Kumar’s 92nd birthday and seem to have run out of all popular songs. Songs that are played on the repeat on music channels and FM radio are not for us. We, a tribe that is called Atulites, living in Atulsongaday.me kingdom (Atuldom for short) are not satisfied with oft-repeated songs.

Not that we don’t love a ‘jeewan ke safar mein raahi’; ‘zindagi ke safar mein’; ‘zindagi ka safar’ or ‘zindagi ek safar’ (some songs that say ‘life is a journey’) as much as ‘munna bada pyaara’; ‘chanda o chanda’; ‘soyi ja taara’; or ‘aa ri aa jaa’ and ‘ankhiyon mein chhote chhote sapne sajaay ke’. Atulites also savor ‘ye raatein ye mausam nadi ka kinaara’ along with ‘main hoon jhum jhum jhum jhum jhumroo’.

There are some Atulites for whom the Kishore Kumar era began with ‘mere sapnon ki rani’ and the songs of ‘Padosan’ and all songs of Rajesh Khanna movies of the ’70s (like yours truly).

There are other Atulites who have seen the growth of this actor/singer/composer/ lyricist/ producer/ director from the ’40s. He was a K L Saigal fan (and from what I have read at various places, most singers of that period were Saigal fans) and his first song in Bollywood “marne ki duaayen kyun mangoon” has a rather “Saigal feel” to it. That didn’t stop him from ‘yodelling’ once he discovered that aspect of singing, inspired by Jimmie Rodgers and Tex Morton.

He was equally comfortable singing ‘aake seedhi lagi dil pe jaise katariya’ and ‘mere naina saawan bhadon’. Singing madcap songs like ‘ek chatur naar’ and ‘rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai’ was as natural as ‘panthhi hoon mein uss path ka’ and ‘aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon’.

I am sure any follower of the blog will say ‘there she goes on her worship Kishore Kumar journey’. But that is the male sound I heard maximum in my growing up years. Of course he came to that level after a long and arduous struggle.

He was mentored by SD Burman in his initial years of singing in movies after he got a break in ‘Ziddi’ under Khemchand Prakash’s music direction. Salil Chaudhary, OP Nayyar, Kalyanji Anandji, C. Ramachandra, Madan Mohan and all the music directors of that period have songs of Kishore Kumar that are still in public memory. That doesn’t mean he didn’t sing for the next generation of music directors. Can’t forget ‘inteha ho gayi intezaar ki’ – Bappi Lahiri, ‘Kya mausam hai’ -Rajesh Roshan, ‘tera chehera mujhe gulaab lage’- Anu Malik (oh yes! he has sung for Anu Malik too); and the biggest of the next generation music directors – R D Burman and Laxmi-Pyare- we cannot even list all the wonderful songs that he had sung under their music direction.

He has duets with male as well as female singers and also multi-singer songs best example of multi-singer song being Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen.

But why did I write ‘we have run out of popular songs’. Out of a possible 2709 songs (that the blog’s stats page says that we have of Kishore Kumar in Bollywood), 1245 have been posted in the blog. Of these 577 are solo songs of Kishore Kumar. That leaves us with 1464 songs to choose from. If I think of songs from the ’70s, we have many non- Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan songs to choose from which were regularly played on Vividh Bharati.

Seeing Randhir Kapoor on Indian Idol over the weekend reminded me of today’s song.
This post from last year gives the story of “Lafange” (1975) in brief. Today’s song helps to establish the character of Gopal played by Randhir Kapoor. It shows how heroes, who play con-men in movies, have gold-plated conscience. They rob the haves and help the have-nots. All heroes are Robinhoods when they play con-men and undergo a character change when they fall in love with the beautiful heroines. Predictable, correct?

Missing singer/actor/producer/director/ composer Kishoreda on his birth anniversary.
