In 1989, a new actor made his debut as a hero and that movie had a song of fond hope- papa kehte hain bada naam karega. That movie became a hit and the debutant actor, Aamir Khan really made his father proud. With passage of time, Aamir Khan has grown from strength to strength and he has in fact made his papa proud beyond his wildesh imagination.

That proud father was Tahir Hussain (19 September 1938 – 2 February 2010) whose 80th birth anniversary falls today. Tahir Hussain was a leading movie maker of his time and he was the younger brother of legendary Nasir Hussain.

Both brothers made movies that provided wholesale entertainment to the moviegoers. Extremely popular music used to be the hallmark of these movies. Just recall some of the movies that Tahir Hussain produced- “Caravan”(1971), “Anamika”(1973), “Madhosh”(1974), “Zakhmee”(1975), “Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”(1993) etc.

He was also a director, writer, actor etc in some of his, or his brother’s movies.

On tis occasion, here is a song from “Madhosh”(1974), this movie, a relatively lesser known movie, had Mahendra Sandhu, Reena Roy, Jay Shree T, Rakesh Roshan, Johny Walker, Helen, Ravindra Kapoor, Aamir Khan (then a child actor), Dilip Dhawan, Faisal Khan, Kiran Kumar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered.

This song, the third from the movie to appear in the blog is a duet. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Reena Roy and Mahendra Sandhu. The audio quality in the picturised value is poor and fails to do justice to the song. So I have provided the audio link which preserves the outstanding quality of this song, which is an archtypical R D Burman composition of those days. It is songs like this that used to rule the airwaves in India those days !

——————————————————————–
Discussion on economics-2
——————————————————————–
Any Government, no matter what kind it is (Democratic, autocratic, Kingdom etc) needs money to function.

Government incurrs two kinds of expenditures:
1. Mandatory expenditures- on salaries of government staff, pensions of retired staff, debt servicing on loan taken etc.

2. Public administration, law and order, welfare activities, infrastructure development.

Money for all these comes from taxes, and if taxes are not enough, from borrowings (loans). It is desirable that most amount required for government is collected through taxes and not through borrowings.

Government collects money mainly though taxes. If country makes good progress (typically measured as GDP) then the government benefits through tax. But then how much tax gets collected depends on tax structure of a country as well as on the tax compliance of the country.

In general, higher the GDP, one would expect higher amount of tax collection for a country. But two countries with similar GDP can have collection of different amount of taxes. For instance, France and India have similar GDP. But their tax collections and accordingly their national budgets are different.

CIA factbook figures- from 2017 shows that

Comparison parameter India France
GDP (nominal) $ billions 2611 2584
Percentage of Tax collection to GDP 9.4% 56.2 %
Budget- Revenue $ billions 229.3 1446
Budget- Expenditures $ billions 330.3 1515
Budget deficit in % of GDP 4.1 2.7

Thus we see that India and France have similar GDP, but the revenue collected through taxation etc in France is more than 50 % of GDP whereas India was not able to collect even 10 % of GDP as revenue. So the advantage of such a large GDP could not be made use of by Indian Government. This is food for thought for those in India who do not pay taxes or underpay taxes and then blame government for not doing anything/ enough for them. Government can work to fulfill public aspirations only from the money that they receive as revenue. If Indian Government received as much in revenue as France receives then India would develop at an enormous rate and many public “grievances” would get addressed promptly and effectively.

Indians are used to receiving subsidies instead of paying for the goods/ services. While it may make them feel good on short term basis, these subsidies do not come for free. They are far more costly for the national economy that if we simply paid for the service without availing subsidy.

Let me illustrate my point by the example of petroleum prices which is a “burning” issue in India at present. Opposition parties are telling that the government is harrassing public by not reducing oil prices and so the government is anti people.

Let us examine the issue in some detail.

India imports crude oil and then refines it in refineries of oil companies of India. These refined products are then offered at retail outlets for sale. Though GST regime had come in existence in India but petroleum products are so far kept out of its ambit. So Petroleum products have the same old taxes as before namely excise duty which is levied by Central Government on oil companies and VAT which is levied by state governments at sales outlets.

So, the prices of petroleum products in India are determined mostly by taxes namely excise duty and VAT.

We have seen above that the tax collection in India is abysmal. Direct tax (viz Income tax and corporate tax) is paid by just one percent of population whereas indirect taxes (earlier there were so many of them, now just GST is there) traditionally yielded very little because most of indirect taxes were evaded and they never reached the coffers of the government.

Keeping all this in mind, Governments (Central as well as states) have deliberately kept Petroleum products out of GST and the same old taxes have been kept on them. This is one source of revenue, which unlike Income tax and other indirect taxes cannot be evaded and so it forms a very good chunk of revenues for Central as well as states.

If crude price goes up, then domestic prices are raised. If on the other hand, crude prices drop then domestic prices are not lowered. The additional revenue that accrues to governments when prices are low are plowed back into all these infrastructure and welfare works that are taking place all over the country. As long as this tax money is going for nation building and other essential activities then one should not mind it too much.

Let us examine what happens when Government decides to keep the prices of petroleum prices down artificially despite crude price skyrocketing. It basically means giving subsidy of that amount. Money for subsidy has to be raised from somewhere.

Let us examine the populist actions and their repercussions.

Government decides to lower the price by say Rs 10 and so gives a subsidy of Rs 10 per litre namely it reduced excise duty by Rs 10.

From where this Rs 10 will get compensated ? As discussed above, from tax collected, failing which borrowing. We have already seen what poor tax collection we get in India, so that leaves borrowing as the only option.

Steps Government Action Action for compensation Economic/ Market reaction
ONE Give subsidy Take loan to compensate for the loss Current Account Deficit goes up
TWO Borrow money from market Money borrowed from market by Government Fiscal deficit goes up
THREE Revenue earned in future to be used for repaying debt Money that should have been used for infrastructure/ public works going instead towards loan repayment Interest rate goes up
FOUR External trade gets affected adversely Import increases and export falls Trade deficit goes up
FIVE Rupee weakens Import becomes costly Rupee gets devalued
SIX Foreign currency gets stronger Foreign currency becomes costly and scarce Foreign currency reserve falls affecting imports
SEVEN High Fiscal deficit sends adverse signal to FII (Foreign institutional investors) FII withdraw their money Share market falls and market sentiment becomes negative
EIGHT Foreign capital exits the market Foreign capital becomes scarce Growth of economy slows down

I have stopped at step eight. There are other steps as well that becomes more and more catastrophic. Providing subsidy is akin to taking loan and that too a hefty loan and we keep repaying this loan back for many years and even decades. A good part of revenue earned by the government goes into loan repayment instead of going into useful infrastructure/ welfare work.

Giving subsidy instead of charging for it has cost the nation heavily and the public (who themselves demand these subsidies) themselves have to bear the burden in future.

One question that gets asked it, how did the previous government keep petroleum price in check despite high crude price. Answer- by taking the easy way out viz by providing subsidy. The nation and the public paid heavily for it for years.

Here is how it worked out.

One barrel of crude oil was $130. The government became hell bent on keeping the domestic price low. They gave heavy subsidy and compensated by borrowing money in the form of Oil bond. It caused Fiscal Deficit to rise.

That oil subsidy caused fiscal deficit and that led to interest rise, causing slump of business activities, this in turn led to inflation. The credit rating agency Moody threatened to downgrade India’s credit rating which shows that Foreign investors had lost faith in Indian market.

And all that just because of this populist decision of trying to keep the oil price down through subsidy.

One of the present day oil price rise protester, who was on the PM chair at that time, addressed the nation at that time on 4 june 2008 and he had this to say while providing oil subsidy-

“I would like the nation to remember that issuing bonds and loading deficits on oil companies is not a permanent solution to this problem. We are only passing on our burden to our children , who will have to repay this debt.”

So, those who had no guts to stand up in national interest ten years ago are today demanding that the present government show the same spinelessness that they showed during their time in power.

The Oil bond (viz the loan that they took to pay for oil subsidy) was not for a small amount. It was a hefty amount of Rs 2 lakh crore ($26 billions) and it had to be repaid in future. The present Government repaid it out of the foreign exchange reserve. Just imagine ! That previous government left the burden of this $26 billions loan on future governments and future generation of Indians. This amount, which could have financed lots and lots of infrastructure/ welfare works just went away as repayment of unnecessary loan. To put things in perspective, $26 billions is a bigger amount than what a neighboring country, which is in financial dire strait, is desperately looking for from IMF.

So in summary, I would say that the decision not to reduce oil price is in national interest. It is what is Fiscal discipline is all about. I would like all governments to show the same guts in standing firm in national interest. Fiscal discipline has had a salutary effect on Indian economy. Today inflation is down at around 5 % mark from the usual 10 % mark during oil subsidy days. Current Account deficit is 2.4% from a high of around 5 % in the past. Fiscal deficit, which is an indicator of financial health of the nation, is now 3.2 % of GDP (from past figures of 4.5 % of GDP) which is unprecedented for Indian economy. Foreign exchange, despite weakening rupee is at nearly at an all time high. There was a time when India had to approach IMF and had to pledge their gold to them to borrow a sum of $ 2 billions. Today, with a foreign reserve in excess of $400 billions, $2 billions is small change for India.

Squandering public money on populist activities is an act of gross fiscal indiscipline and its consequances can be devastating. There are examples of countries that were destroyed because of populist policies. Argentina, which used to be an advanced economy till 1950 came under the rule of a populist regime and then military dictatorship which destroyed its economy and that economy lies destroyed even today, with that country looking for an IMF bailout package repeatedly, including at present. Then there are other examples as well, viz Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Cyprus etc. Why look at foreign examples. Even Indian economy lay in ruins in 1990 as a result of fiscal indiscipline for three decades, that forced India to approach IMF for bailout in 1991. A nation that felt stung and humiliated before IMF took up the path of liberalization of economy. Some tough and brave decisions by that government and subsequent governments set India on the path of economical recovery and prosperity.

Instead of being misled on trivial issues by people with selfish motives, we should find out real facts about important issues on our own, instead of blindly believing whatsapp forwards that often originate from people with malicious motives. I have seen whatsapp forwards that “informed” us that oil price in India was the highest while is was very low in Pakistan, Nepal etc. The question to be asked is- do you know the condition of public services in Pakistan and Nepal? Pakistan does not have electricity half the time and their electricity tariff is the highest in the world. Their electricity changes are Rs 16 to 20 per unit. In India it is Rs 4 per unit. Are Indians prepared to pay electricity charges that Pakistanis pay ? In India 10000 pairs of trains run daily and a population equal to that of Australia is travelling on IR at any time. In comparison only about 300 trains run in Pakistan and only a population of 1.8 lakh (equal to population of a small town like Khandwa or Ganj Basoda) is travelling in Pakistan Railway in one day. In India, 3.3 lakh people fly by air daily ! In Pakistan only 6600 passengers fly by air in one day. India have the cheapest internet service in the world which is reasonably fast for the price. Many useful services like Railway and airlines reservations, banking services etc are already accessible on internet. Would Indians be ready to have the kind of internet that Pakistanis “enjoy” ? What about law and order ? Providing all these services takes money, and that money comes from taxes. If you provide petrol at subsidised prices that Pakistan and Nepal apparently do then you end up starving your public services with the result that your public services are of poor quality and/ or non existent.

India should compare themselves with China and there we find that the Chinese petroleum prices are similar to Indian prices.

I, as someone who has as much a stake as anyone else in the country, including politicians, would like all my governments to stand firm and gradually dismantle all subsidies. I would also want the tax collections in the country to come at par with advanced countries. All advanced countries collect atleast 25 to 30 % of their GDP as taxes and that is how they are able to finance their government spendings through taxes without needing to take loans. People not paying their taxes and expecting government to give them freebies/ subsidies, that can only be counterproductive. People who do not perform their duties should not expect any free favours. Nothing is free in this world. Someone has to pay for the services that some people may be availing for free or at subsidised rates. It is better if everyone pays for the services he /she is availing.

In brief, one has to make “sacrifices” if one wants to have a better and more prosperous future. If one looks around, one can see infrastructure works going on all around in areas like roadways, railways, ports, waterways, metros, Airports. Then there are welfare works like Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana, Ujjawala, Ujaala, Jan Dhan Yojna, Pradhan Mantri M Jan Aushadhi Kendra etc. If taxes paid by us in various forms (including taxes on petroleum) are going for building infrastructure as well as for helping the poor sections of society, then where is the problem. I in fact would feel happy that my taxes are helping the nation grow visibly. What is there to feel aggrieved about ?

Instead of feeling aggrieved about petroleum prices that are not within our control because they are imported, we should on our own try to reduce our dependence on fossil fuel and look for alternative sources of energy that would be within our own control. Government is making long term plans to reduce our dependence on fossil fuel. We may not have notice it, but solar energy is being aggressively promoted. India is rich is sunlight and so we will be self sufficient in solar energy. Today it may only be supplying 2 % of our energy needs, but before we blink our eyes, we will find as much as 50 % of our energy needs being met by solar energy by 2030. That will reduce our dependence on fossil fuel a great deal and oil prices will become a non issue.

Blog Day : 3704 Post No. : 14628

Today (8 september 2018) is the 85 birth anniversary of Asha Bhonsle.

Lots and lots have been written about her over the years. Most of these writings include popular songs sung by her over the decades. There are articles that tell us about the top “n” number of songs sung by her.

This blog already has more than 2500 Asha Bhonsle songs. The 6000th song in the blog was dedicated to her.

Legends do not become legends just because of their skills in their chosen field- viz singing powess in this case. There are far many other things that come into play. Asha Bhonsle has been a very strong character, a survivor against heavy odds, and a fighter to the core who made it big despite facing situations that would have crushed lesser mortals.

Unlike most, she kept on reinventing herself with time. Her singing in 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s are not the same. She added new feathers to her cap in every decade.

Most HFM legends fail to impress when they are interviewd on radio or TV and they are not able to express themselves as we would like to see them. But Asha Bhonsle is an exception. She is a great conversationalist who enlivens any talk show or interview that she participates in. Youtube has several of her interviews/ talk shows. In this respect she was like Kishore Kumar, who was a wonderful conversationalist. Here is a link where Asha Bhonsle talks about Kishore Kumar.

She was a great socialiser of course. She would socialise not just with her fellow artists, but their family members as well and would forge friendships that would last for decades. One very interesting friendship that she and her siblings forged was with Sivaji Ganeshan. Asha Bhonsle had gone to Madras (now Chennai) for a recording in 1960s. There she watched a Tamil movie called “Paava Mannippu”. After coming back to Bombay (now Mumbai), she told her siblings that they HAD to watch this actor Sivaji Ganeshan. So they all went to Aurora Theatre in Bombay where this movie was being screened.

During interval, they all realised that they were crying though they did not understand a word of Tamil in the movie. They all felt that Sivaji Ganeshan reminded them of their father late Dinanath Mangeshkar.

The next day, they contacted Sivaji Ganeshan and told him that they were coming to Madras to meet him. They flew to Madras, arrived at this home, hugged him, tied him rakhis and cried.

That formed a close bond with Sivaji Ganeshan and his family that lasts even today, more than fifty years later, even after the demise of Sivaji Ganeshan.

Sivaji Ganeshan’s wife Kamlaa Ganeshan did not know Hindi or English, but only Tamil. Still Lata and Asha Bhonsle would stay engaged in conversation with her for hours, Kamala Ganeshan in Tamil and Lata/Asha in Hindi. They would shop together and spend lots of time together.

On the occasion of her 85th birth anniversary, here is a song from “Bhaagyawaan”(1953). Film Bhagyawaan-53 was produced by Mahipat Rai and Anupchand Shah and directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Raja Nene, Radhakishan, Yashodhara Katju, Ratan Kumar, Qamar, Baby Mala, Alhad, Balraj Sahni, Shakuntala etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered.

This second song from “Bhaagyawaan”(1953) is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Neelkanth Tiwari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

We take this opportunity to wish Asha Bhonsle a happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

Lyrics

Nigaahon mein base aise

na jaane kaisi masti thhi
ee ee ee ee ee
na jaane kaisa jaadoo thha
na jaane kaisi masti thhi
ee ee ee ee ee
raha na hosh baaqi jab
nazar ke jaam takraaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

nahin hai farq husn o ishq ka
ulfat ki mehfil mein
aen aen aen aen aen
nahin hai farq husn o ishq ka
ulfat ki mehfil mein
aen aen aen aen aen
shama ka dil jo pighle to
wo khud parwaana ho jaaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

chale aao ke dil ki beqaraari
badhti jaati hai
ae ae ae ae ae
chale aao ke dil ki beqaraari
badhti jaati hai
ae ae ae ae ae
koi yoon hi tasawwur se
kahaan tak dil ko bahlaaye
ke khud ko bhi jo dekhen to
teri soorat nazar aaye
nigaahon mein base aise

It is felt that changes take place slowly, especially in a country like India. Nevertheless, one cannot imagine how much India has changed in the last half a century or so. Actions that were considered acts of bravery and machismo those days are today wrong, undesirable, unhealthy, unsafe and even illegal. For instance, tiger hunters were considered saviors of humanity in India and they were respected by every one. Books written by hunters were taught in schools and colleges. Likewise felling trees and clearing space was considered a work of development and progress which was an act of nation building.

Today, killing tigers and other wild animals is illegal in India. In fact, movies showing animals must carry a disclaimer that no animals were harmed while picturising them. As for trees, entire Rail industry ran on wooden sleepers made out of trees felled on mass scale. In fact, olden steam locomotives in many countries (including India) used wood (and not coal) as fuel. Today, felling a single tree is considered a bigger crime in India than killing human beings.

Smoking was considered a macho male act. Today smoking itself is considered an unhealthy act that destoys one’s lungs and lead to cancer. Heroes are no longer shows smoking in movies unlike in the past and there too the statutory warning is required to be carried out.

In olden days, studying was good and playing was bad.

“padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab
kheloge koodoge hoge kharaab”

It was a very popular saying in India for many decades. Today of course no one believes in it. Sports have become professional and top sportsmen (often school dropouts) in lucrative sports earn such high incomes that majority of studious people can only dream about.

Likewise, government policies that were considered great those days have ended up becoming discredited. India followed socialism for the first four decades after its independence. By late 1990, this policy led to the counttry becoming virtually bankrupt and that policy has been discarded by now.

“Maalik” (1958) was directed by S M Yousuf for Sunny Art Production. The movie had Talat Mehmood, Suraiyya, Lalita Pawar, Roopmala, Jeevan, Mukri, Radhakrishen, Kumar , Jagdeep etc in it.The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. The last song from the movie was covered in 2014.

The song under question was planned by me to be discussed in 2014 itself and I had decided to make it post number 9929, to be posted in june 2014. Somehow this song did not materialise then. Now, more than four years later, here is this song from “Maalik”(1958). It is fair to say that the messages contained in the song would be considered by and large irrelevant today. 🙂

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is sung by a school teacher to her pupils who enthusiastically sing along in approval. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab (Maalik)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad
Asha Bhonsle + Chorus
Chorus

Lyrics

padhoge likhoge
banoge nawaab tum
banoge nawaab
jo kheloge koodoge
hoge kharaab tum
hoge kharaab
padhoge likhoge
banoge nawaab tum
banoge nawab
jo kheloge koodoge
hoge kharab tum
hoge kharab

jo bachche kabhi likhte padhte nahin
wo izzat ki seedhi pe chadhte nahin
jo bache kabhi likhte padhte nahi
wo ijjat ki sidi pe chadhte nahin

yahi din hain padhne ke padh lo kitaab
yahi din hai padhne ke padh lo kitab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge koodoge hoge kharab tum
hoge kharaab

buraai ke raste se bach kar chalo
buraai ke raste se bach kar chalo
kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
agar mar bhi jaao na peena sharab nahin peena sharab
agar mar bhi jaao na peena sharab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge kudoge hoge kharab tum
hoge kharaab

jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano
jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano

na ho duniya bhar mein tumhaara jawaab
na ho duniya bhar mein tumhaara jawaab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum
banoge nawaab
jo kheloge kudoge hoge kharaab tum
hoge kharaab

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been covered so far.

Here is the eighth song from “Shaarda”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by C Ramchandra and Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Like most C Ramchandra duets, this song is picturised as a romantic comic side plot song. The song is picturised on Agha and a lady whom I am unable to identify. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

duniya hai dariya
tum ek lehar ho
main hoon tumhaara kinaara
humne bhi tumko samjha hua hai
jaan se dil se hamaara

jitna tumhe hai
utna humen hai
dil ka bukhaar zara zara
dekho ji dekho
dena na dhokha
hai aitbaar zara zara

pyaar ki baaten
dekho ji ??

kal hi register kar doonga shaadi
duniya jale to jale

Song-Bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai (Imaan)(1951) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Pt Priyadarshi, MD-Motiram

Lyrics

bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai
bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai
gaya bachpana aayi jawaani
wo bhi din wo bhi din
aur ye bhi din haaye
wo bhi din yaad hai
bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai

pyaari maiyya roz sawere mujhko
doodh pilaati thhi
haan mujhko doodh pilaati thhi
shaam ko thapak thapak kar
mujhko apne saath sulaati thhi
haan apne saath sulaati thhi
sapne jaise beet gaye hain wo bhi din
wo bhi din aur ye bhi din
haaye wo bhi din mujhe yaad hai
bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai

aayine mein dekh dekh baalon ko
sanwaaroon khadi khadi
baalon ko sanwaaroon khadi khadi
raste chalne waalon ko dekha karti thhi khadi khadi
haath pakad maa le jaati thhi
wo bhi din
wo bhi din
aur ye bhi din
haaye
wo bhi din mujhe yaad hai
bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai

laad pyaar aur mamta maa ki dekhi hai
na dekhoongi
haan dekhi hai na dekhoongi
unhi ke charnon ki sewa mein duniya ka
sukh dekhoongi
haan duniya ka sukh dekhoongi
jaise sundar nikal gaye hain wo bhi din
wo bhi din aur ye bhi din
haaye
wo bhi din mujhe yaad hai
bachpan ka zamaana yaad hai
gaya bachpana aayi jawaani
wo bhi din wo bhi din
aur ye bhi din
haaye
wo bhi din yaad hai
bachpan ka zamana yaad hai
