Today we pay tribute here on the blog to Mahendra Kapoor, one of the well-known voices of the golden era of Hindi music, on the occasion of his 9th death anniversary. There are many ways to start this tribute but, instead of “getting my eye in”, let me, Sehwag-style, straightaway go for it. By “it”, I mean the elephant in the room.

What can one achieve at a tender age of 20? Name ? Fame ? Fortune ?. Well to most of us, 20 is an age when we start aspiring for these things in life. However, a few men acquire all these and more even in their early twenties.

Seven years, nineteen films, a celebration wedding that was the talk of the tinsel town, and then handing over the torch to the next generation.  That about sums up the career of the once beauty star – Babita.  Greetings to her on the 67 birthday today (20th April).

The short lived career, however, was a scintillating one.  She appeared opposite to practically all the top heroes in the industry at that time, and did a number of musical romantic films, as could have be the draw for the young and beautiful lady.  It is known that GP Sippy first offered the role of Sheetal, the young widow with child, for his upcoming film ‘Andaz’ (1971) to Babita. After some in-family discussions, she turned down the role, possibly considering that it might work to be a negative for her career.  Another youngster, Hema Malini, took on the role.  Hema Malini had made her debut in 1969, three years after Babita’s debut (‘Dus Lakh’, 1966).  Both are of the same age though, having the same year of birth.  The trajectories of their subsequent careers and lives, tell their own stories.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 2

(1971 – Duet)

The decade of the seventies brought in some significant changes in the landscape of Hindi film song. For one, it was the spectacular rise of Kishore Kumar as a playback singer.“Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” happened in 1969, and after that we see a meteoric rise in Kishore Da’s playback singing performances. The second significant aspect is the accompanying rise of the new age music spearheaded by music directors like RD Burman and Bappi Lahiri. The generations were changing, and the new generations lapped on the new age music coming from this new crop of composers. Sadly, however, the demise of melody was also acknowledged to have occurred in this decade.

Train travellers in India are quite used to crowding, not just in the lower classes, but even in upper classes. Getting privacy is the last thing they expect in a public transport system like Indian railways.

On 30 january 2011, I received an e mail in my inbox. This contents of the email warmed the cockles of my heart and made my day. The e mail read

Hi Atul,

Wonderful site. A very useful & handy reference tool, too. I browse it regularly for my dose of golden oldies, rare gems, lyrics, song info or just to surprise myself. The days of yore studded with glittering jewels such as Radio Ceylon/SLBC & Vividh are sorely missed.

One thing that I notice & love about your blog is the painstaking indexing & categorisation of the content & the accuracy of material, esp. lyrics. Generally, the lyrics are free from errors, authentic and spelled brilliantly. Only a person of language can do such justice to transliterating hindi into english with admirable precision & exactness.

I’m sure you devote a considerable amount of time to build up and maintain this blog. As I do consult this blog from time to time, to repay the favour and as a token of my gratitude, I would like to offer my assistance in keeping this blog ticking over. What I can do for this blog is to submit a song’s lyrics & youtube link directly to you. After your approval & review, you may post it on to the blog alongwith your usual valuable & insightful comments.

Thank you indeed.

Atif.

N.B.: I am submitting a song below.
