Hullo to Atuldom

2nd November is the birthdate of Anu Malik, son of famous yesteryear music director Sardar Malik. Sardar Malik who is one among the forgotten stars of yesteryears and is not counted among the top five, but his works are still remembered. How can one forget “main gareebon ka dil hoon watan ki zuban” or “saranga teri yaad mein” or the Talat Mehmood classic “ae gham-e-dil kya karoon”; every one of them dipped in pure emotion and melody.

There have been lots of articles (in this blog and elsewhere) about the festival of Deepaawali. They mostly deal with the history of the festival, stories associated with it, how it is celebrated etc.

Hullo all Atulwaasis

I want to thank a few people who made me what I am. And the few means a small number of 25 or so teachers. Today (5 september 2017) is TEACHER’s Day.

During school days, we used to eagerly wait for this day. Those were the days when we didn’t have regular pocket money and we had to put an application to our parents for anything from Re. 1 to Rs. 5 (depending on what the class organizing committee would have set as the minimum individual contribution.)

Today (10 may 2017) is the third anniversary of passing away of character actor Sudhir (10 May, 2014).

Now the last I had seen him in a movie was in ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ in 2007 in a blink and miss role. Then we had also seen him in movies like ‘Dulhe Raja’ (1998) in a slightly less brief role with some comic timing thrown in. Prior to this I can remember him in Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Baadshah’ (1999) where also he had some comedy in the situation of his character. In the interim he was also seen in a few television serials. But of course if someone asked me who Sudhir was I can say that he was the smart guy (smarter than Dev Anand if I am allowed to say) in ‘Gambler’ (1971) who sits besides the heroine, Zahida, in the song “Dil Aaj Shaayar Hai Gham Aaj Naghma Hai“. But I had no material at hand to write about Sudhir. For example, I didn’t know where he was from etc. He played characters that were always behind the scenes in many of his movies like ‘Shareef Badmash’ (1973) etc. I checked online and found that his real name was Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria. I also learnt that he is uncle to Milan Luthria who has made a few movies in recent times. Then on further googling I also saw that he had produced a movie or two (according to IMDB.com). It seems he was also an assistant director.  But nothing more that would stand out so I am leaving it to our experts in Atuldom to fill about this character artiste.

[Ed Note: Please see the post for the song “Na Maano To Koi Shikaayat Nahin” from film ‘Ustad 420’ (1969), as well as the comments therein. The comments plus the post provide a fairly detailed bio sketch of the character actor Sudhir.]

Even as we have been celebrating the journey of this blog over 3000 days, there has been another journey that has taken place recently.

Avinash Scrapwala, our Nagpur-based Atulite, happened to visit Bengaluru earlier this week for a short trip with his wife. If you’ve read the post , you will notice a mention of his boarding the train at Nagpur at 10:10 hrs and expecting to reach at 06:40 hrs the next morning.

Recently I saw an ad in the newspapers which made me realise that there is something called the “World Music Day” and that it is held in about 120 countries. It is Fête de la Musique’ or Make Music Day or World Music Day.

Now whenever I come across such World or International things I have started reading about it from the (my) trusted source—Wikipedia. And I will say that most times it gives correct knowledge.

Hullo to all the guys and gals of Atuldom

The writing bug has hit me after a long time.

Had an enjoyable January. To begin with had a quiet ushering in of the New Year followed by birthday time. So each had a small outing attached to it.

Then the most eventful Sunday….17th January 2016. A day which was under planning since October 2015 when we had a mail from Guruji of his impending visit to Bangalore via Hosur and Hyderabad. This time the group met at a new venue— Residence of Gajendra Khanna. Now here I feel like mentioning that I am floored by his collection of Vinyl Records and the number of WORKING TURNTABLES or Record Players as I used to call them as a kid. Another thing that should be mentioned is his wonderful idea of how to get more people to enjoy an event and the thought behind getting us live on YOUTUBE that day. We went live that day at about 11. And instantly Avinashji, Ben Katie, Atulji YYIIPPEEEE master and a few of Gajendra’s friends (I don’t know exactly how many or who all) hooked on to us. The (physical) attendees were Shenoyji, Arunji (Guruji), Rajaji, Gajendraji and a group of music lovers whom I got acquainted with for the first time that day.

There have been Hindi movies on the theme of actual wars fought by Indian Defence forces post independence, with semi fictional narratives woven around those wars. The first one that left lasting impact was Chetan Anand’s “ Haqeeqat”, based on 1962 Indo- China war.

In this movie theere was a very touching Mohammad Rafi song Main ye soch kar uske dar se uthaa thaa that brought out the trauma of soldiers living far away from their beloved.

Good day to all in atuldom

So today’s post is not giving any classic vintage rare song. It is one of the run of the mill (chalu, chalta hai) kind of song. It is written by Sameer who has written many traditionally lyrical and poetic songs. But I consider it must have been a little difficult for such a person to write “a not so purist” kind of song. People would consider it the depths of despair to even think of it as a song. But in the words of my daughter it is a very realistic song. A normal middle class person can only promise a Pepsi or coke to his girlfriend. He can only find solitude in a crowded theatre. Lets agree that in the 1960s,70,80s etc that is where we used to encounter most couples who were in love. So what is wrong in expressing it explicitly in a song. To top it where is solitude in our cities now a days?
