Blog Day : 3669 Post No. : 14546

Less than a week ago, we remembered our beloved Rafisaab on his death anniversary.
Today happens to the birth anniversary of another of our beloved legends, Kishore Kumar (popularly referred to as Kishoreda). So we very fondly remember him today and pay tribute to him.

Both Rafisaab and Kishoreda died when just in their 50s – both of them could have easily gone for many more years. But life and death matters are not in our hands – we can only thank them for what they have given us, the legacy they have left behind for generations to relish.

As with Rafisaab, I have written a lot about Kishoreda already on this blog. I am extremely fond of him – as I have said many times, it is never a competition for me between artistes. This isn’t an Olympics event where if one has to get gold, the other can at best aspire for silver.

I remember a poll in the late 70s, where people had to vote on who was the better singer, Kishoreda or Rafisaab. I don’t remember who came up with the poll but those were times when Kishoreda was the reigning star. He himself felt so embarrassed by this poll that he conveyed his unhappiness at it and it ended.

Professional rivalry apart, Kishoreda and Rafisaab had great respect for each other and were actually very good friends. Amit Kumar, Kishoreda’s son, has narrated stories about their friendship. So all this petty thinking is in the minds of people and not those who are the topic of discussion.

Personally, I have always stayed away from discussions trying to pull down one artiste to make the other look better. Thankfully, the world of music is like an ocean – it has room for everyone to contribute to, and partake of, its treasures.

Amongst the artistes, sure, there might be competition to be better than the other – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It only makes one strive to be better.

I remember Laxmikant-Pyarelal saying that if RD Burman came out with a hit album, L-P wanted to do better with their next. And RD had the same competitive spirit. But it was never malicious, or to run down the other.

As music lovers, we benefit from this – we get the best of all worlds.

Now let me talk a little bit more about Kishoreda since this post is a tribute to him.

Where do I start?

With his singing of course.

I am fond of Kishore Kumar the actor too. I’ve seen many of his comedy films of the 50s and 60s.

I am also much-impressed by Kishore Kumar, the producer/director. Contrary to his image of being more of a prankster and comedian, his films Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971) are thought-provoking, sensitive, films with depth. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see a different side of Kishore Kumar.

I am also impressed by Kishore Kumar the composer. He composed almost entirely only for his own films – and did a wonderful job at it.

Considering he was also the writer for his own films, it gives us an idea of what a brilliant all-rounder he was. It is hard enough to do one job, but to do so many so effortlessly requires genius.

And Kishoreda definitely qualifies for this. Much like Sir Gary Sobers, former West Indian cricketer, who, as an all-rounder, could do practically anything on a cricket field.

And yet, despite all this, what Kishoreda will be best-remembered for, and what he absolutely excelled in, was as a singer.

Which is why I would like to discuss more about his singing now.

I’ve said this many times before – I grew up with Kishoreda all around me. Those were the early 70s – and Kishoreda was everywhere. You had to live in that time to realize how much he dominated that period. Or, if you want evidence, just check Binaca Geet Mala lists and you will know.

I don’t need any such evidence – I know that every single day Kishoreda dominated song programmes on radio that were based on the latest Hindi film songs. The female voice might have been largely split between Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, but the male voice was Kishore, Kishore and Kishore.

It was often for Rajesh Khanna, but even when it wasn’t, it was Kishore. It could be Kishore for Shashi Kapoor (Sharmilee) or for Dharmendra (Blackmail) or for Jeetendra (Parichay) or Dev Anand (Gambler) but it was Kishore all the way.

Occasionally there’d be a male voice of a “new” song that was not Kishore. That song often stood out as an exception. It could be Rafisaab or Mukesh or Manna Dey. But it was always the exception, not the norm.

So THIS was the environment in which I grew up. My school classmates used to sing a lot of songs – they were invariably Kishore songs. In particular, I remember songs like “o mere dil ke chain” (which was my favourite at one time), “chalte chalte”, “o maajhi re” and “zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain”.

But of course there were many more.

My own favourite would keep changing. I had this concept of a favourite song which I’d sing non-stop (driving others crazy) till another favourite took over.

I remember it was at one time “ye shaam mastaani”, then “sama hai suhaana suhaana”, then “jaane ja dhoondhta phir raha” took over, to be displaced by “o mere dil ke chain” (this was favourite for a very long time) and then “tere bina zindagi se koi” took over. There might have been others too, I can’t remember now. In between, there were umpteen songs that I’d sing while taking a break from my favourite. 🙂 Obviously, all to myself only – which is why I am still alive. 🙂

This post is already getting a bit long but I’ll mention one anecdote from school days. I was in 8th Standard. In those days, we’d often ask our teachers for a “free period” – sometimes a teacher would be nice enough to oblige. Boys would then go up to the front of the class and sing songs.

Once our English teacher gave us a “free period”. The best singer in the class, by name Prasad, went up to sing. Suddenly he announced “I’ll sing this song because it is Raja’s favourite”. Now I was quite a favourite of my teacher, maybe because I was reasonably good in English. She immediately looked at me – I am pretty sure she expected an “English” song. Maybe Carpenters or Rolling Stones, or Beatles, or some such group. She probably had that idea about me.

Prasad started singing “o mere dil ke chain”.

I could see the look on my teacher’s face. It was like she had been hit by a brick. A Hindi song? That too a film song? That too, a romantic song? Bhajan hota to phir bhi chal jaata. I turned red, and immediately averted my eyes, looking down throughout, hoping the earth would just open up and swallow me. I was sitting in the front row, right in front of her, so there was no place to hide. Prasad must have sung very well – he always did – but I couldn’t listen to one word. I was too busy lost in my own “misery” to pay attention to anything else.

Somehow I managed to survive – though I think my teacher never quite saw me the same way again. 🙂 Prasad has a lot to answer for. 🙂

Today, this anecdote suddenly came to mind as I was writing this post. Wonderful memories – of Kishore Kumar songs, enjoyed with my classmates in school.

The point is to emphasise how much of an influence Kishore Kumar had on me at that time. Rafisaab came into my life much later.

By the time the 1980s came along I could not keep track of the latest songs. Partly because I got busy, partly because I didn’t like where music was headed. (“Angrezi mein kehte hain” and “shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal”, you know I’m looking at you :-)).
Anyway, it wasn’t Kishore’s fault. His voice was always a delight to listen to.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song I’d never heard before till Avinashji brought it to my attention a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of the film.

The original idea was to possibly post it as Kishoreda’s 1100th song on this blog, but since another song took that place, we are posting this as his birthday song. The lyrics are, as usual, by Avinashji.

The song is “geeton mein mere” from Geet Ganga (1982). The film itself makes its debut on this blog today.

It is a pleasant song which grows on me the more I listen to it. I have already listened to it quite a few times.

The lyrics, referring to songs flowing like the Ganga, have a nice feel to them. Anjaan, the lyricist, being a native of Varanasi, had his own style of lyrics, often bringing a Bhojpuri feel to them. And this song referring to the Ganga is in the tradition of other songs written by him which also refer to it – “Ganga kinaare waala”, “maano to main Ganga maa hoon”, “Ganga mein dooba” for example.

The song is picturised on Arun Govil, and as he “sings”, the words resonate with me.

jhoom ke aise ae
geet sunaaun
nafrat mein bhi preet jagaaun
dushman ko bhi meet banaaun
jo dil chhu le ae
geet wo gaaun
swarg utaaraa
saat suron mein bahe re jag saara

Lovely lines – and it is wonderful to listen to Kishore Kumar singing them. Indeed “jo dil chhu le, geet wo gaaun” suits him – he sang many songs that touched our heart.

I hope you like the song too.

On this note, I will end this post as it has already become somewhat long.

All I will say is, Kishore Kumar will always remain in our hearts as a very special person – one of a kind.

Thank you for everything, Kishoreda.

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) was directed by Satyen Bose for Ruchi Films, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Madhu Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt, Arvind Deshpande, Baby Komal, Om shivpuri, Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Amar Shan, Ram Mohan, Mushtaq Merchant, Javed Khan, Birbal, Surendra Kumar, Master Sandeep, C S Dube, Datta Bhatt, Rajan Kapoor, Arjun Bakshi, Vrajendra Mohan, Narbada Shankar, Pardesi, Mansaram, Mukund Bannerji, Radheshyam Diit, Taneja, Uma Khosla, Madhumita, Hansni Dutt, Veena Kapoor etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it.

Today is the 60th birthday of Arun Govil, the hero of the movie who was barely 21 years old at that time. How time flies.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979). This song is sung by Shailendra Sinh and it is picturised on Arun Govil, with a lady, which I presume isv Madhu Kapoor also visible. Kulwant Jaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Laman.

The song is one that I had heard during its days, though I was not aware about its details. when I paid attention to the lyrics I found this song quite a “negative” song where the hero is expressing his “bebasi” throughout the song. Quite a sissy kind of song, if you ask me. Heroes should be tough and determined, not “what can I do” kind of characters. 🙂 He should rather sing -“nahin main nahin dekh sakta tujhe rote huye”. 🙂

Anyway, here is wishing Arun Govil a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

With this song, “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Mere bas mein agar kuchh hota (Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin)(1979) Shailendra Singh, Kulwant Jaani, Ram Laxman

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

tu haal mera na jaane
main haal tera na jaanoon
kaisi hai ye majboori
main tum tak aaun kaise
lagta hai ab to aise
yug yug ki hai doori
main hoon bebas warna kisi ko
judaai ke ye kaante bichhaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota to
aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta

hone do jo hai hona
hai pyaar hamaara sona
toota kaanch nahin hai
ye yaad rahe ae humdum
ek roz milenge hum tum
saanch ko aanch nahin hai
mujhe ye vishwaas na hota
to door tujhe nazron se jaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

तू हाल मेरा न जाने
मैं हाल तेरा ना जानूं
कैसी है ये मजबूरी
मैं तुम तक आऊँ कैसे
लगता है अब तो ऐसे
युग युग कि है दूरी
मैं हूँ बेबस वरना किसी को
जुदाई के ये कांटे बिछाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता

होने दो जो है होना
है प्यार हमारा सोना
टूटा कांच नहीं है
ये याद रहे अये हमदम
एक रोज़ मिलेंगे हम तुम
सांच को आंच नहीं है
मुझे ये विश्वास न होता
तो दूर तुझे नज़रों से जाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

Basics of Music- Part III (Raag and Thhaat)
——————————————–

In part I, we introduced swars and mentioned that combination of swars constitutes melody. In part II, we introduced the concept of Rhythm (taal) and mentioned that it is the combination of melody and rhythm that makes music what it is today.

Each of the two parts were quite heavy duty stuff for people not exposed to such stuff earlier. I got some comments on part I, but hardly any for the second part, which may mean that these concepts may have been going above the heads of readers. Nevertheless, these concepts are vital and they needed to be introduced. Here is the third part of the discussion on basics of music.

Hindi movie makers have always been on the search for a formula that would enable them to make hit movies. And interestingly enough, this formula does not remain constant rather it varies with time. Moreover, movies made on the same formula do not always meet the same fate. Some movies succeeed while others flop at the box office.

“Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1979) was a Rajshree Productions movie and like most Rajshree Productions movie, music was the hero of this movie too. The movie was full of nice songs which became quite popular. In fact most people may have watched the movie for its songs. I was certainly one of them.

By 1970s, Rajshree Productions had hit upon a cost effective winning formula. In their movies, they would ensure that the story and music was the king and actors were non entities. They would hire newcomers in lead roles and make them work for pittance. As for music, they would hire music directors who were prepared to work for less fee. Their standard music director throughout 1970s was Ravindra Jain, who doubled up as the lyricist too. His music was the single biggest reason for the success of these movies as far as I am concerned. personally I felt the same way that a mouse felt when he heard the music of the pied Piper. whenever I heard the music of a Rajshree Productions movie, I felt like going to the movie hall showing that movie.
