Today’s song is from the movie ‘Bhakt Raaj-1960’. This movie was directed by V.M. Vyas for ‘Shri Nityanand Chitra, Calcutta’. V.M. Vyas also wrote the screenplay of this movie.

The cast of this movie included Sulochana, Shahu Modak, Trilok Kapoor, Lalita Pawar, David, Kuldeep Kaur, Prem Adeeb, Roopmala, Kumkum, Jaymala, Bhagwan, Dara Singh and others.

This movie was based on a story written by Pandit Madhur (as mentioned in the footnote of this movie page in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1960.

‘Bhakt Raaj-1960’ had eight songs. Seven songs were written by Bharat Vyas and one song was based on traditional lyrics (this is the song that we are going to listen today).

Music for this movie is composed by Avinash Vyas.

HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that the recording of the songs of this movie was completed in June-1958 and it seems that this movie was released before by the name of ‘Ram Bhakti’ in 1958.

Here is the list of songs of the movie.

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

laga kaun sa nasha ji nas nas mein nahin
aji aaj mera man mere bas mein nahin

Blog Day :

4867 Post No. : 16660

LIFE is a strange phenomenon – full of unexpected things and coincidences. Normally, I never take a long break in my post writing. Last month, however, I needed a break to relax and do things which I have been postponing or delaying – at Home level and work sphere. So I wrote to Atul ji informing him that I would take a hiatus from writing my posts from 28th October till well after Diwali, i.e. 10th of November. Little did I know that The Fate was smiling from behind me and that it already had its own plans to enforce a break to my total activities in the same period. Call it my Intuition or premonition. Whatever.

On the 5th of November – right in the very midst of Diwali celebrations, I met with a freak accident early in the morning at about 0615 hours, after my routine daily Morning Walk on our Society’s Jogging Track. I got medical treatment quickly, thanks to my Son-in-Law and two Grandchildren (One of them a Doctor himself). I was hospitalised and underwent all the irksome procedures like CT Scan, Tet. Injection, stapling the wound, Bandaging etc, followed with an order for compulsory Bed rest for a week ! So, my original plan to look at the pending works etc was gone with the winds, again turning into a wish for the future ! Taking this opportunity, I enjoyed all the attention and special treatment from the near and dear ones at home and on Social media !

When such things happen, one tends to confirm the existence of some unknown power that moves matters, whatever you plan otherwise as a simple Human. I believe this is Divine Power and is called GOD ! I am a confirmed Theist and a Deist, so are 99% people in India – whichever their Religion. Once you accept God’s existence you start believing and following the relative Culture. Hindu Culture is built around Upasana and Karmkand.

Karmakand includes items that have to be performed by the believers – as a path to Salvation. One of these is Fasting on certain days. There are two types of fasting that are undertaken by the people. One is fasting on fixed days of the week and the second is fasting to undertake a ” Vrat ” or a ritual to achieve specific objectives, like pleasing a particular God/Goddess to gain something etc.etc.

There is however,one more type of Fasting which is Monthly once or twice or yearly once or twice. Generally, it is some special ” Ekadashi ” or the 11th day of the Indian Month. In Maharashtra, the Ekadashi falling in the month of ASHADH is considered very auspicious. On this day, millions of devotees from all over Maharashtra converge at the Vithal Temple of Pandharpur. For this occasion, people start walking hundreds of kilometers from their villages/towns to Pandharpur. It is called ” VAARI” (वारी ). It has a tradition of over 700 years.

Ofcourse, there are some such pilgrimages from other states too, like Shri Vaishno Devi Yatra, Jagannath Yatra, Kamakshi Devi yatra of Gauhati, Sabari Malai Yatra in Kerala – which is very strenuous – requiring 40 days of Penance and abstinence and climbing the hill through jungles of Kerala. Such Yatras must be there in other places too. If our readers mention some, we will know better.

All this about Ekadashi, because today’s song is from the film Ekadashi-1955. Before we proceed further, let us know more about Ekadashi (One time or both times Fasting).
What is Ekadashi ?

Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day (Tithi) of the shukla (bright) or krishna (dark) paksha (fortnight) of every lunar month in the Hindu calendar (Panchang). In Hinduism and Jainism it is considered a spiritually beneficial day. Scriptures recommend observing an (ideally waterless) fast from sunrise on the day of Ekadashi to sunrise on the day following Ekadashi. Hindu scriptures teach that it is especially important to avoid all beans and all grains on this day because on the day of Ekadashi these two foods are contaminated by sin, one should eat only fruits and vegetables and milk products on this day. Ekadashi day is recognized as the best of all days to fast because it is on this day of the moon phase in which the rays of the moon actually nourish the subtle nerves and feelings of the heart.

Two Ekadashis occur in one month according to positions of the moon. The progression of the moon from full moon to new moon is divided into fifteen equal arcs. Each arc measures one lunar day, called “tithi”: The time it takes the moon to traverse that distance is the length of that lunar day. Ekadashi refers to the 11the tithi, or lunar day. The eleventh tithi therefore corresponds to a precise phase of the waxing and waning moon: In the bright half of the lunar month, the moon will appear roughly 3/4 full on Ekadashi, and in the dark half of the lunar month, the moon will be about 3/4 dark on Ekadashi.

Bhagavata Purana (sk. IX, adhy. 4) notes the observation of Ekadashi by King Ambarisha, a devotee of Vishnu.

The film Ekadashi-55 was made by All India pictures. produced by R.L. and M.L.Arora,it was directed by V.M.Gunjal. The music director of Ekadashi-55 was Avinash Vyas, ably assisted by Jayanti lal. There were 8 songs in the film. The cast of the film was Trilok Kapoor, Mala Sinha ( her only Mythological film), Sulochana, Gope, Badri Prasad etc etc.The Heroine of this film was Mala Sinha. It is mentioned in HFGK and also features in the credits of the film. However,strangely, she always avoided accepting that she ever worked in this film.

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada-54’ in Bangla and Hindi. In 54 again, she did her first film in Bombay, Badshah-54 (released on 15-10-54), then came Hamlet-54 (released on 7-1-55), Riyasat-55 and Ekadashi-55.

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted “Rangeen Raten”-56 with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film Riyasat-55, her Hero was Mahipal and in film Ekadashi-55 it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many Heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example,in the film “Professor”-62 Shammi Kapoor’s Heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was Pyar ki Jeet-62, opposite Mahipal- a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade Heroine Meena Kumari also had done several Mythological and costume films before Baiju Bawra took her high up and above other Heroines. Films like Veer Ghatotkach-49, Shri Ganesh Mahima-50, Laxmi Narayan-51, Hanuman Paataal vijay-51 and Alladin aur Jadui Chirag-52 had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny Walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with Baazi-51, had earlier worked in “The last message or Aakhri paigham”-49. However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors,but even singers do this. They hesitate to say that they first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare Arzoo-50 as her first film, under Anil Biswas, but she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film Aakhri paigham-49, under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

Lyricists are not far behind. Gulzar’s first song was not from Bandini – 63, as is claimed. He has written lyrics in films Choron ki Baraat-60, Diler Haseena-60 and Shriman Satyawadi-60. He wrote these songs as Gulzar Deenvi. Then he wrote lyrics in the film Kabuliwala-61 and Prempatra-62 in the name of Gulzar. Even then he claims Bandini-63 as his first film- which is wrong.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with a less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

Film Ekadashi-55 was directed by Dada Gunjal. Director Vishnupant Mathaji Gunjal or simply Dada Gunjal, was born in Kolhapur in 1904. He was not interested in education, so after passing his Matriculation, he joined the film industry. Initially he worked in various capacities, but concentrated on Directing the films. He established his own Gunjal Production company at Bombay and directed his first silent film Collegian in 1929. Soon ,realising that producing films was not his cake, he shifted to Directing films for Vishwesh film company, Bombay. Making silent films like Bharati, The Bandit, Vijeta, Bewafa qatil, khabardar, Bhedi khanjar etc.
When Talkie films started, he directed Bhakta ke Bhagwan and Ambarish in 1934. Dada Gunjal directed in all 37 films. Some of his films were, Bhakta dhruv, Panihari,Aparadhi, Ekadashi, Mata, Mamta, Tulsi, Bhakta ke Bhagwan, Noorjehan, Baraat, Kirti, Pati patni, Alakh Niranjan, Mother India -1938 etc.

Dada Gunjal died in 1968.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. It is a good song. Enjoy….

Today’s song is from the film Ekadashi-1955, a Mythological film.

Culture and Religion have a close relationship. The commonest points of Religion, followed by a majority for time immemorial, becomes the culture of the nation. Raas Garba, Ganesh Utsav, Diwali celebrations and Indian Calendar New Year days in respective regions are no more a matter of Religion by now. They have become the cultural heritage of the country. A good example is Holi or lighting done on Deepavali or touching the feet of the elders…all these constitute Culture, though its roots are traceable to religion.

Today, Religion, for most people in the world, I feel,is limited to one’s personal space and I believe, in today’s setup it is also very appropriate to limit the religion to one’s home. One should not get confused between Religion and Bhakti. Mythological films are based essentially on stories from the Holy books, like Ramayana, Mahabharat or the Puranas. Bhakti pradhan films are based on personalities engaged in devotion to their Deity. Thus, films like Narsi Bhagat or Sant Tukaram are Bhakti pradhan films, whereas films like Pawanputra Hanuman or Veer Arjun are Mythological or Pauranik films. Films on saints like Kabir, Soordas, Tulsidas or Tyagaraja are not religious but Mythological films are surely religious films.

The film Ekadashi-55 was made by All India pictures. produced by R.L. and M.L.Arora, it was directed by V.M.Gunjal. The music director of Ekadashi-55 was Avinash Vyas, ably assisted by Jayanti lal. There were 8 songs in the film. The cast of the film was Trilok Kapoor, Mala Sinha ( her only Mythological film), Sulochana, Gope, Badri Prasad etc etc. The Heroine of this film was Mala Sinha. It is mentioned in HFGK and also features in the credits of the film. However,strangely, she always avoided accepting that she ever worked in this film.

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada-54’ in Bangla and Hindi. In 54 again, she did her first film in Bombay, Badshah-54 (released on 15-10-54), then came Hamlet-54 (released on 7-1-55), Riyasat-55 and Ekadashi-55.

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted “Rangeen Raten”-56 with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film Riyasat-55, her Hero was Mahipal and in film Ekadashi-55 it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many Heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example,in the film “Professor”-62 Shammi Kapoor’s Heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was Pyar ki Jeet-62, opposite Mahipal- a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade Heroine Meena Kumari also had done several Mythological and costume films before Baiju Bawra took her high up and above other Heroines. Films like Veer Ghatotkach-49, Shri Ganesh Mahima-50, Laxmi Narayan-51, Hanuman Paataal vijay-51 and Alladin aur Jadui Chirag-52 had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny Walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with Baazi-51, had earlier worked in “The last message or Aakhri paigham”-49. However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors, but even singers do this. They hesitate to say that they first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare Arzoo-50 as her first film, under Anil Biswas, but she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film Aakhri paigham-49, under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

Lyricists are not far behind. Gulzar’s first song was not from Bandini – 63, as is claimed. He has written lyrics in films Choron ki Baraat-60, Diler Haseena-60 and Shriman Satyawadi-60. He wrote these songs as Gulzar Deenvi. Then he wrote lyrics in the film Kabuliwala-61 and Prempatra-62 in the name of Gulzar. Even then he claims Bandini-63 as his first film- which is wrong.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with a less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

Coming back to today’s film Ekadashi-1955, many of the younger generation may not know what Ekadashi means. Not their fault. Children learn from what goes around , first in the family and then in the world around them.

What is Ekadashi ?

Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day (Tithi) of the shukla (bright) or krishna (dark) paksha (fortnight) of every lunar month in the Hindu calendar (Panchang). In Hinduism and Jainism it is considered a spiritually beneficial day. Scriptures recommend observing an (ideally waterless) fast from sunrise on the day of Ekadashi to sunrise on the day following Ekadashi. Hindu scriptures teach that it is especially important to avoid all beans and all grains on this day because on the day of Ekadashi these two foods are contaminated by sin, one should eat only fruits and vegetables and milk products on this day. Ekadashi day is recognized as the best of all days to fast because it is on this day of the moon phase in which the rays of the moon actually nourish the subtle nerves and feelings of the heart.

Two Ekadashis occur in one month according to positions of the moon. The progression of the moon from full moon to new moon is divided into fifteen equal arcs. Each arc measures one lunar day, called “tithi”: The time it takes the moon to traverse that distance is the length of that lunar day. Ekadashi refers to the 11the tithi, or lunar day. The eleventh tithi therefore corresponds to a precise phase of the waxing and waning moon: In the bright half of the lunar month, the moon will appear roughly 3/4 full on Ekadashi, and in the dark half of the lunar month, the moon will be about 3/4 dark on Ekadashi.

Bhagavata Purana (sk. IX, adhy. 4) notes the observation of Ekadashi by Ambarisha, a devotee of Vishnu.

Ekadashi Vrat is supposed to be very important. In Maharashtra, the Ekadashi falling in the month of ASHADH is celebrated at Vitthal Mandir in the Holy city of Pandharpur. Lakhs of devotees walk for 21 days,barefoot, to reach the temple. It is called VAARI. Here is more information-

Ashadhi Ekadashi , Pandharpur

The Pandharpur yatra is held on Aashadi Ekadashi (June- July). One of the most famous pilgrimages in Maharashtra, Pandharpur Ashadhi Ekadashi Wari has been taking place for more than 700 years. This is a religious padyatra,which comprises over 1 million pilgrims traveling for 21 days to Vithoba temple by foot. Numerous palkhis (processions) from various towns and villages join the main palkhi that starts from Sant Tukaram Temple at Dehu in Pune district. The yatra culminates at the Vithoba temple on Ashadi Ekadasi at Pandharpur. The annual Pandharpur Yatra to the famous Vithoba Temple at Pandharpur in Maharashtra is an unparalleled pilgrimage that breaks the barriers of caste, creed, rich and poor. The main rituals are performed in the early morning (0300hrs).

This is not unique to Maharashtra. Almost in every state of India, such pilgrimages are undertaken. Speaking of the South, the pilgrimage to Lord Ayyappa on Sabarimala Hills in Kerala is famous. After 40 days of Penance and Abstinence, devotees walk-in Black Clothes- to Sabari Malai. In the North the pilgrimage to Mata Vaishno Devi is well known. In the East people visit Kamakhya Devi on a Pilgrimage. Not millions, but Billions of Indians do these pilgrimages.

The film was directed by a veteran – Dada Gunjal. Director Vishnupant Mathaji Gunjal or simply Dada Gunjal, was born in Kolhapur in 1904. He was not interested in education,so after passing his matriculation,he joined the film industry. Initially he worked in various capacities,but concentrated on Directing the films. He established his own Gunjal Production company at Bombay and directed his first silent film Collegian in 1929. Soon ,realising that producing films was not his cake,he shifted to Directing films for Vishwesh film company,Bombay making silent films like Bharati, The Bandit, Vijeta,Bewafa Qatil, Khabardar, Bhedi Khanjar etc.

When Talkie films started ,he directed Bhakta ke bhagwan and Ambarish in 1934. Dada Gunjal directed in all 37 films. Some of his films were,Bhakta Dhruv, Panihari, Aparadhi, Ekadashi, Mata, Mamta, Tulsi, Bhakta ke Bhagwan, Noorjehan, Baaraat, Kirti, Pati patni, Alakh Niranjan, Mother india -1938 etc.

Dada Gunjal died in 1968.

The story of film Ekadashi-1955 was-

In the days of the King Rukmangad of Ayodhya, the King and all his subjects, Proud or Humble, adhered to this Fast and as a result, while they lived on this planet they had Peace of Mind and therefore Temporal Bliss and after death ascended to Heaven. Now that all Ayodhya people went to Heaven-and Ayodhya was a vast and populous kingdom-the population of Hell fell colossally. This caused great anxiety to the King of Hell-YAMRAJ, as his Prowess as King narrowed down with the diminished numbers. He took upon himself to create a breach in the strict observance of the fast by the King Rukmangad: as like King, like subjects, all would follow suit and prosperity would reign supreme in Hell. But all the manoeuvres of Yamraj fell flat against the religious fervour with which the King followed the observance. As a last resort, Yamraj got Mohini by supplicating to Brahma. Mohini-beauty incarnate in female form-was a power that subdued all it saw; sages or saints, high or low. The ordeal of putting up resistance to this force was too much for Rukmangad and he staggered. Diamond cuts diamond and woman does likewise. The Maharani Sandhyavalli knew this and her efforts and sacrifices to save her lord proved all in vain. The King’s heroic struggles against beauty aroused were wasted and when all seemed black for this holy pair their son, Dharmangad, rose to the sally of beauty. Child against beauty-both the highest creations of the Almighty were arrayed face to face. Finally,it was the victory of Good over Evil. Mohini accepted her defeat and withdrew. Thus the importance of Ekadashi Vrat remained intact.

Here is a song from this film sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus.

THis “social” movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that Nirupa Ray has played the Bhabhi in this movie and lip synced in Madhubala Jhavery’s voice in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa (Bhaagyawaan)(1953) Singers-Sulochana Kadam, Madhubala Jhavery, Lyrics-Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa
jiya jhoom jhoom jhoom kar gaaye
kaun duniya mein hoga mujh jaisa
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye
jiya rom jhoom kar gaaye

meri bhaabhi kitni achchi
kitna laad ladaati
paas nahin hoti hai mere
mujhko nahin rulaati
meri bhaabhi ka
o meri bhaabhi ka, pyaar ye hai kaisa
nahin meri samajh mein aaye
meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye

bhagwaa aa aa aa aan
bhagwaan bhed ye kaisa
nahin meri samajh mein aaye
ek hi dharti
ek hi ambar
ek hi jeev banaaye
ek abhaaga ek saubhaaga
ek hi seep ke moti
ek daal ke do phoolon ko, duniya kahaan pe roki
ek koi maathe par rakhta, ek koi thhukraaye
nahin meri samajh me aaye
bhagwaa aa aa aa aa aa aan

mujhe bulaayegi meri bhaabhi
degi doodh katore
degi doodh katore
mujhe sulayegi meri bhaabhi
suna suna kar lori,
suna suna kar lori
bhaag ki toone khoob banaai dori
kahin hansaaye kahin rulaaye
baat na jaaye todi
bhookha nanha munna kaise
apna man bahlaaye
pankh nahin hai jo ud jaati
devar mujhe bulaaye
mera devar mujhe bulaaye

Mukesh and his Composers – 20
—————————————————-

A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
This is a quote famously attributed to English politician and statesman Winston Churchill for his views on Russian engagement during World War II. This analogy may be completely irrelevant to the context of today’s post, but then I could not help remembering the above quote when I became cognizant of the total number of Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for the composer being discussed in today’s post.

Well, we are talking about composer Avinash Vyas and Mukesh’s association with him. To sustain the unusual mystery and the context of the first two paras, I would request readers to guess the total Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for Avinash Vyas.

Meanwhile, to reveal Mukesh’s collaboration with him in Gujarati films and non-film songs, here are the details of the same. As usual, I had requested Shri Harish Raghuwanshi, the compiler of Mukesh Geetkosh to confirm the details of the combo. Further, I had requested him to send me only the total number of songs that Mukesh sang in Gujarati under Avinash Vyas.

However, Shri Harish ji despite his poor eyesight and health issues was kind enough to send me the complete details including confirmation of the total songs sung in Hindi films as well. Instead of keeping such invaluable details confined to my inbox, I thought it prudent to include the details in the present post and following are the two tables with the details self-explanatory.

List of Gujarati Film songs sung by Mukesh under the baton of Avinash Vyas
—————————————————————————

S.No Name of Film (Gujarati) No. of.Songs
1 Bhakta Tulsidas 5
2 Kaadu Makraani 1
3 Kanku Ane Kanya 1
4 Ghar Ni Shobha 1
5 Jamaairaaj 1
6 Bhaada Taaraa Vaheta paani 1
7 Santu Rangili 1
8 Sorathi Sinh 1
Total 08 Films Total 12 Songs


List of Gujarati NFS sung by Mukesh under the baton of Avinash Vyas

——————————————————–

S.No NFS (Gujarati)
1 Aaj Kharu Avtarvaanu
2 Aapan Sahuye
3 Ghadi ghoonghat…. Nazar ne kahi doh
4 Chaalyaaj karoon
5 Jaa re Jhanda jaa
6 Priti nu pushp… aavo toy saarun
7 Pankhida ne aa pinjaru
8 Hey tane jaataa joi

Thus, Mukesh sang 12 filmi and 08 non-filmi Gujarati songs under the baton of Avinash Vyas. That’s obviously a total of 20 songs.

So, what could be the total number of Hindi songs sung by Mukesh for Avinash Vyas who scored music in some 52 movies and composed 390+ known songs.
Thirty? Twenty? Ten?

Well, before we proceed to discuss the surprise number, here are two important links for the details of the work done by Avinash Vyas.

  1. https://atulsongaday.me/2020/08/20/aaja-re-dukhiyaa-dharti-tujhe-pukaare/
  2. https://www.songsofyore.com/forgotten-composers-unforgettable-melodies-8-avinash-vyas/

The first link is a recent post by Atul ji, in which he has painstakingly put together the complete known works of Avinash Vyas in Hindi films and the details of his songs covered on the blog.

The second link is a post by Shri Ashok M Vaishnav ji on Songs of Yore blog wherein the life and works of Avinash Vyas is reflected. Some interesting discussion in the comments section reveal the continued lack of clarity on the total number of films scored and the songs composed by the music director.

Now, coming to the total songs sung by Mukesh under Avinash Vyas, finally, here is the complete list.

 

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Lyricist
1 Tim tima tim Har Har Mahadev (1950) Ramesh Shastri
2 Nitya nirantar boley anta Shiv Shakti (1952) Munshi Saagar Hussain
3 Jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai Mata Mahakali (1968) Bharat Vyas

What?
Three songs only?

Well, however much we may debate and discuss, the fact of the matter is that there are only 3 songs of the combo. The composer was known for composing mainly for religious and mythological films. Contrary to popular belief, Mukesh has sung enough devotional songs in films which, as his other genre songs, have also become quite famous. Then, why such a low figure of only 3 songs is simply surprising.

Mukesh has sung only one song each in 3 of the 52 films scored by Avinash Vyas in Hindi.

So, why hardly 3 songs of the combo? As I have contemplated in my earlier posts on such surprises, there could be no reason whatsoever. More occasions simply did not happen. This could be the most plausible reason that one could come up with. As I finish writing this post, I am still under disbelief that there are only 3 songs of the combo.

Anyway, going through the songs, first two have been covered on the blog. The one from ‘Har Har Mahadev’ is in fact a famous duet with Sulochana Kadam. The second one from ‘Shiv Shakti’ is a solo bhajan.

It can be traced easily on the blog that if Mukesh has sung in any film, then that particular song is most likely the first to be featured or debuted on the blog.

Today’s film ‘Mata Mahakali’ (1968) also makes its debut on the blog with this highly philosophical song. The film was released under the banner of Sharad Productions and directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The cast included Ashish Kumar, Jaishree Gadkar, Nalini Chonker, Shahu Modak etc.

Lastly, Shri Harish ji has also confirmed that there are no NFS in Hindi of the combo. I thank him again for all the help he rendered in completing this post.

Song – Jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai (Mata Mahakali)(1968) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Avinash Vyas

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai

arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai

jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai

ye dekho surya ka jalwa
subeh ko jo nikalta hai
ye dekho surya ka jalwa
subeh ko jo nikalta hai
chamkta hai
damakta hai
magar sandhya ko dhalta hai
ye uthne aur girne ka
sada hi khel chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai woh dhalta hai

arey insaan akad mat aaj tu apni bulandi par
arey insaan akad mat aaj tu apni bulandi par
na girte der lagti hai
samay ki ek mandi par
vidhaata ne likha jo lekh
taale se na talta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

jo singhasan par baitha tha
kiya karta tha manmaani
jo singhasan pe baitha tha
kiya karta tha manmaani
wo naukar ban ke teli ka
chalaata hai arey ghaani
samay ke saamne har aadmi ka
kuchh na chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

lagan panchhi ki pinjar se
jise ye tod na sakta
lagan panchhi ki pinjar se
jise ye tod na sakta
ye toota hai
ye phoota hai
basera chhod na sakta
samay ki baat keechad se
yahaan pankaj nikalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai
samay ka chakra chalta hai
arey maanav sambhal ke chal
samay karwat badalta hai
jo ugta hai wo dhalta hai

जो उगता है वो ढलता है
समय का चक्र चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है

जो उगता है वो ढलता है
समय का चक्र चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है

जो उगता है वो ढलता है

ये देखो सूर्य का जलवा
सुबह को को निकलता है
ये देखो सूर्य का जलवा
सुबह को को निकलता है
चमकता है
दमकता है
मगर संध्या को ढलता है
ये उठने और गिरने का
सदा ही खेल चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है

अरे इंसान अकड़ मत आज तू अपनी बुलंदी पर
अरे इंसान अकड़ मत आज तू अपनी बुलंदी पर
ना गिरते देर लगती है
समय की एक मंदी पर
विधाता ने लिखा जो लेख
टाले से ना टलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है
समय का चक्र चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है

जो सिंघासन पर बैठा था
किया करता था मनमानी
जो सिंघासन पर बैठा था
किया करता था मनमानी
वो नौकर बन के तेली का
चलाता है अरे घानी
समय के सामने हर आदमी का कुछ ना चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है

लगन पंछी की पिंजर से
जिसे ये तोड़ ना सकता
लगन पंछी की पिंजर से
जिसे ये तोड़ ना सकता
ये टूटा है
ये फूटा है
बसेरा छोड़ ना सकता
समय की बात कीचड़ से
यहाँ पंकज निकलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है
समय का चक्र चलता है
अरे मानव संभाल के चल
समय करवट बदलता है
जो उगता है वो ढलता है

Today (20 August 2020) happens to be 36th remembrance day of Avinash Vyas (21 july 1912- 20 August 1984).

As a tribute to him, two songs composed by him have been covered in the blog. Incidentally, his tally of songs in the blog stands at 99. So today is an appropriate occasion to cover the 100th song of Avinash Vyas in the blog.

Avinash Vyas was active in Hindi movies from early 1940s till late 1970s. Overall, he composed music in 52 movies as far as my research goes. Here are the details:-

Total 52 movies 99 377* Number of songs unknown in some movies

As can be seen from the table, Avinash Vyas has composed a little under 400 songs in 52 Hindi movies. Most of these movies have been mythological movies. But “Adhikaar”(1954) is a glorious exception. In this movie, which was a “social” movie and which is already YIPPEED in the blog, Avinash Vyas created some evergreen classics, viz. BA MA PhD , Dil mein hamaare kaun samaaya khud hi samajh lo , Ek dharti hai ek hai gagan ,
Kamaata hoon bahut kuchh and
Maati kahe kumhaar se…maati mein mil jaanaa etc.

Majority of Hindi movies that Avinash Vyas got in Hindi were mythological movies of course. And in these movies, his songs would typically e penned by Bharat Vyas (no relation), Kavi Pradeep etc. “Chakrdhaari”(1954), an archtypically mythological movie had 13 songs in it. This movie too is YIPPEED in the blog. And what songs this movie has ! Baadal ki paalki pe hoke sawaar and Bolo he zameen bolo aasmaan are two of these songs.

As a tribute to Avinash Vyas, here is a song from “Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas, of course.

“Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959) was produced by Beni Talwar and directed by Ramesh Vyas for Chandra Prakash Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Madan Puri, Jagdeesh Sethi, Leela Mishra, Jayshree Gadkar, Nand Kishore, Rooplaxmi, Amirbai Karnataki, Heera, Suryakant, Poonam, Narbada Shankar, Jagdeesh Kanwal etc in it.

This movie had six rare songs in it. It is in the fitness of things that the 100th song of Avinash Vyas in the blog as a music director should be a special song. Only the audio of this “remonstating with the Almighty” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959) makes its debut in the blog while Avinash Vyas joins the select band of artists who have 100 or more songs in the blog. He becomes the 38th music director and 92nd artist overall to achieve this distinction in the blog.

Knowledgeable readers are requested to point our errors and omissions etc if any in the filmography presented above.


Song-Aaja Re…Dukhiya dharti tujhe pukaare (Charnon Ki Daasi)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

Aajaa re ae ae
dukhiya dharti tujhe pukaare
o paataal ke waasi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

tum bin meri pooja adhoori
o o
o o o o o o
tum bin meri pooja adhoori
ankhiyaan neer bahaatin
tum bin phool mere murjhaaye
bujhi deep ki baati
rahi adhoori meri aarti
teri ban gayi daasi
aaja o Ghanshyaam tumhaare
pathh mein palak bichhaati
jee na sakegi darshan bin
tere charan kamal ki daasi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

ik din toone Drupad suta ki
laaj ka cheer badhaaya
ik din toone maiyya Ahilya ka
sab paap chhudaaya
jab bhakton ne tujhe bulaaya
nange paaon tu aayaa
aaj meri baari aayi to
kahaan wo roop chhupaaya
jal bin machhli si tadpoon main
log udaayen haansi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

aaj is pukaar pe
jo tu na aayegaa aa
mera kuchh nahin tera naam jaayegaa
aaj bigdi baat jo na tu banaayegaa aa
phir na koi bhakt tere geet gaayegaa aa
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae ae ae
