Regulars of this blog are aware that my family had three pets namely Nuppy (cat), Bhole (dog) and Chhote (Dog) that my wife adopted in september 2010, october 2010 and december 2010 respectively in the place where she lived. I was based at Nagpur those days, some 300 km away. They were all very young when they were brought home. I would visit my wife and daughter and bring them to Nagpur along with the pets during their holidays.

These pets and their interesting tales are covered in several of my writeups, viz. Aaye ho to dekh lo duniya zaraa (Chiraag Kahaan Roshni Kahaan), Jab koi ladki baar baar mere dil ko tadpaaye (Chattan Singh), Ye pyaari pyaari paati (Janmbhoomi), Tu hai mera yaar (Milan),Jahaan chaar yaar mil jaaye wahaan raat ho gulzaar (Sharaabi)(1984), Jaa jaldi bhaag jaa (Deshpremi)(1982), Bade miyaan to bade miyaan (Bade Milaay Chhote Miyaan)(1998) etc.

Most of these writeups were happy tales describing the amusing antics of the pets. The first and so far the only sad writeup appeared on 29 june 2012, where I broke the news that the cat nuppy was no more.

There have been no detailed posts in the blog about my pets since 2015 though I had a collection of many new interesting stories about them.

I have finally decided to pen another writeup on my pets. This is unfortunately another obituary. It is Chhote, the youngest pet who passed away on 27 may 2020.

When we got the medical cards of our pets made in Nagpur in January 2011, the three of us were the owners of the three pets. Chhote was shown as owned by my wife, Bhole by me and Nuppy by our daughter.

The three pets have brought us countless hours of joy as long as they lived and left fond memories after two of them left us.

Chhote was the centre of attraction of our household. Not just the humans in the house, even the other two pets of the house were very fond of him. He had a natural knack of winning over strangers (animals as well as human beings). He was the youngest pet, and the other two pets were very protective of him. In the winter season of 2010-11, the three of them would sleep snuggled up with each other. The two senior pets would keep Chhote between them, protecting him from both sides.

My wife never pampered our daughter (despite she being our only child), but Chhote was pampered by her, to the extent that she began to give step motherly treatment to Bhhole. Later she realised the error of her ways and made amends. Chhote began to assert proprietary claims over my wife and would prevent Bhole form coming close to her. When I came visiting from Nagpur, Bhole paid Chhote in the same coin. He staked a proprietary claim over me and prevented Chhote from coming close to me, much to our amusement. Till the last moment, this ownership claim was not given up. But to our credit, we tried to treat both dogs fairly even if he was not the owner. 🙂

Chhote had such smooth silky coat. In Nagpur, I would hear the door bell. At the door, I would find the padosan living upstairs holding Chhote and telling me that he was going to the busy main road. I would thank her and take hold of Chhote. People loved to hold Chhote in their arms, just to feel the texture of his smooth silky coat.

Cat was allowed to go out and come in but the dogs were not. But Chhote, always looking for challenges and adventures would often escape out of the home. Bhhole would then seek to escape so that he could go out and protect Chhote.

While Bhole and nuppy knew their way back home, Chhote did not and he would lose his way. Then my wife would order nuppy to go and bring Chhote back. Amazingly, nuppy understood the command. She would go and bring Chhote home. This happened more than once and so it could not be just a coincidence.

Even street dogs began to know him. Once a street dog brought him back to the home! As a reward, my wife gave that dog some foodstuff to eat.

Chhote gave respect to his senior pets, just like humans do.

While Chhote had the temperament of being a dog seeking to socialise with everyone, Bhhole was an athletic dog, with strong jaws and good running speed. My daughter appointed him her sprint coach. The two would begin their sprint together. Bhhole would easily outrun her and then stop to allow her to catch up with him before resuming his sprint. Bhhole’s coaching was quite useful seeing that my daughter was the 100 metre sprinting champion of her class among girls and once she even won a District level sprint.

Bhhole would also play football with my daughter while being dressed properly in football shorts. Bhhole, proudly sporting his footballing short looking like Scoobie Doo, would be seriously tackling the daughter for ball possession when he would suddenly find his shorts being pulled down. It was Chhote (looking like Scrapy Doo) entering the arena wondering what happened to the tail of Bhhole. Bhhole would snarl at him, asking him to leave him alone. 🙂

Once, Chhote for some reason began to whine and whimper and got into the nerves of my wife. It is said by wise men, and morning message to this effect regularly gets circulated in whatsapp groups that “One should not take imortant decisions when angry and one should not make promises when happy”. It is a wise saying that my wife does not practice. She got annoyed with Chhote and decided to give away the trouble making Chhote to someone else. She convinced a lady to take Chhote and handed Chhote to her.

That was a saturday. When the daughter came back home from school and found Chhote missing, she started crying and insisted that Chhote be brought back. Even the other two pets were silent and sad. Next morning, wife and daughter went to that lady. They found Chhote, who roamed around freely inside his earlier home, tied by a chain in that household. Chhote was very happy to see them. My wife asked Chhote back. Much to their relief, the lady agreed to hand Chhote back. While they were bringing Chhote back, a cow who had recently given birth to a calf though that her calf was being taken away. she gave a chase. My wife went to the cow and showed her Chhote and convinced her that it was a pup and not her calf. 🙂 When Chhote was brought back home, the other pets, silent since morning, became happy and cheerful. The raunaq of the household had returned. The voice of Chhote which my wife was finding annoying till the previous day began to sound like music to her ears.

Chhote was quite intelligent and smart. Unlike most humans, he could think out of the box and outsmart humans. A human would chain him and think that Chhote cannot get away. Chhote would pull his head out of the neck collar and the human would be left holding the chain with the collar. Chhote had used this trick on many unsuspecting humans. In the early days, we tied him with chain made of fibre. He would bite off the rope and free himself. Then we bought metal chains to tie him and Bhole.

In Nagpur, we had a garden adjacent to my residence. The garden is closed from all sides. I would leave the dogs in the garden every morning for an hour before bringing them inside the home. I was secure in my knowledge that there was no way the dogs can go out of the garden. But as I mentioned before, Chhote outwitted me. He laid a detailed long term plan. This plan was carried out so well that I could notice nothing. One week later, when I went to the garden to bring the two pets back, they were nowhere to be found. They had escaped !

What Chhote had done was an example of a lateral thinking at its best. He found out that the mud under the gate was soft. So every day, he got Bhhole (the athletic dog) to dig some mud from under the gate. Bhhole dug some mud everyday for seven days. On the seventh day, enough gap got created under the gap and the two escaped through that gap.

Where did they go ? There was a children’s part nearby. The board said-“only for Children of Railway employees”. The two dogs were playing there, considering themselves as children of a Railway employee.

Both dogs had different natures and different qualities. Chhote, the brainy one, had the ability to analyse things and work out ingenious solutions, which is unusual for most other dogs. For instance Bhole could never do these things. When it came to opening doors, Bhhole only knew how to open door by pushing. If the door needed to be pulled then Bhole was all at sea. But Chhote could easily pull a door. He even worked out the way to go through spring loaded doors by pulling it safely.

Bhole was good in barking whereas Chhote was not. When Bhole barked, his bark was so furious that people thought that many dogs were barking. Chhote accompanied him in barking but he in reality would only be only lip syncing in Bhole’s voice.

Chhote had some superhuman abilities in him. For instance he could tell by smell if the foodstuff was edible. We often used to buy milk packets when running short of Milkman supplied milk. Once we bought one such milk packet and offered this milk to the pets. Pets, who would dring milkman supplied milk without a fuss, refused t drink it despite being hungry. Later they drank milkman supplied milk. That is how we realised that the milk suppled in milk packets was not safe.

Chhote’s hearing ability was truly superhuman. The car that we have is one of millions such cars built to the same specifications, but Chhote could tell this car apart by the sound of its engine. He could do it when the car was at least a kilometer away. The person driving the car could barely listen to the sound of the engine, whereas Chhote, located one kilometer away could tell that this car belonging to the family was arriving back home in five minutes.

Chhote was very fond of being driven around in that car. He would take the passenger seat and look around, soaking in the scenario. He has traveled a lot between Maharashtra and MP, seated on the passenger seat.

When visitors came home, they were afraid of Bhole and they would request that Bhole be tied down by chain. No one was afraid of Chhote. Chhote would remain free and join in watching the visitors (plumbers/ electricians etc) do their stuff. If luggage was being moved from one place to another (for instance during transfers) Chhote would sit on the furnitures and would get carried along with the furniture. If the school friends of the daughter drop in and had their discussion while seated on chairs, Chhote too would hop on a chair and give them company.

From Nagpur, I got transferred to Bilaspur during end of 2011 and shifted the luggage in February 2012. All six of us travelled from Nagpur to Bilaspur in that car.

Bilaspur residence had a sprawling premise. The wall was broken at places. Initially I was worried that the dogs would escape through the gaps and would be lost. But after nearly one year of tussle between the pets and me, I realised that the pets could go out and come in safely. There were many occasions when I felt that the dogs (one or both) were lost, but fortunately they came back safely every time. In due course, the premise became a safe haven for pups and their mothers. The two pets would repel any male dogs from entering the premise, but pups and their mothers were welcome to reside in the premise. There was a time when the premise housed, apart from Bhhole and Chhote, two female dogs and nearly a dozen pups.

Bhole and Chhote had their meals in their earmarked pots. Bhole was very possessive about his meal and would not share it with any other dogs. Chhote on the other hand was quite accommodating and shared the meal of his pot with any pup who approached him. The pups adored him. I had taken photographs (that I shared on facebook) that show Chhote walking around with nearly a dozen pups following him.

We also had some temporary pets there that lasted for just a few months before being lost for one reason or the other. My wife had given them interesting names. One of these temporary pets was a pup named Kabra Singh. Both Bhole and Chhote were quite friendly with Kabra Singh and they would teach him tricks of dogfight. I have a photograph where Kabra Singh is seen trying to apply those tricks on his own gurus. 🙂 Kabra Singh tried to copy the mannerisms of Chhote. If Chhote was seated on a chair then he would get seated on a small stool striking the same pose as Chhote.

When I was transferred from Bilaspur to Izatnagar in UP in 2015 then bringing the two pets offered challenges because of the distance involved. Finally I worked out an elegant solution (first suggested by the daughter). She suggested that we needed to bring them by train. Initially I told her that it was not possible. Then on checking up the rules I found that dogs could be brought in guards van or in AC first (if other passengers do not object). No self respecting pet dog would ever travel in the guard van with the guard (without the owner) so that option was ruled out. The dogs had to be taken only by AC first. The best and fail safe way to ensure that there was no objection from other fellow passengers was to ensure that we got the cabin of two berths instead of four berth cabin. I requested for it. I was ensured that I would get that provided no VIPs traveled that day by that train. I prayed and my prayers were answered. VIPs kept away and we were allotted two berth cabin. The dogs, duly certified fit to travel (certificate issued by a government vet), with their documents and tickets were with us. THe TTE saw the tickets and raised no alarms (I had already ensured that the TTE was briefed beforehand). Chhote occupied the lower berth and watched eagerly out of the window like a wide eyed kid. Bhole, not interested , made himself comfortable at the floor of the cabin. Chhote let my wife share the lower berth with him. 🙂

Early morning, we arrived at Agra cantt. From there, we reached Izatnagar by road.

Izatnagar in UP was different from Bilaspur in Chattisgarh. The premise of the residence was just as porous as was the case with Bilaspur residence but I realised that allowing the dogs to roam free like they did at Bilaspur was not safe. So after a few close shaves, it was made sure that the two dogs were taken out of the residence only while chained. Of course then escaped from the chain many a times and those who ran behind to bring them back aften had harrowing time cornering them and bringing them back.

Every morning I would take the dogs on walk, one dog at a time. It was alweays Chhote first, because it was he who insisted on being taken for a walk first thing in the morning, come rain or snow. Thanks to him, I became the most disciplined officer in Izatnagar who would regularly go on a walk at 6 AM and even earlier while others were still sleeping. Even during torrential rain, Chhote would insist on having his daily morning walk. He was that kind of outgoing dog.

The street dogs in Izatnagar were quite big built and fearsome. They would try to bully Chhote and Chhote would get nervous. I , armed with a stick, assured him that he was under Z category security and he was well protected. I would manage to keep the gang of street dogs at bay. When it was the turn of Bhole to go on his morning walk, the tables were turned. For some reason, the appearance of Bhole unnerved even those big built hardened street dogs assembled in a gang and they would quickly disperse at the sight of Bhole. Bhole walked the street like a dabang dog.

Like at Bilaspur, even at Izatnagar, pups and their mothers were allowed to stay in the premises of the residence. As at Bilaspur, even here the pups were fond of the pets. Even Bhole was admired by pets. When they went on their morning walk, these pups also accompanied them. Pups accompanying Bhole would take advantage of Bhole’s appearance to bully even big looking street dogs and chase them away. 🙂

Izatnagar has an IVRI (Indian Vetenary Research Institute) nearby. The two dogs would often go there for their medical check ups and there they would combine to bully other dogs.

When I was transferred from Izatnagar to Gorakhpur in August 2018, I and my wife travelled by our car with our pets. The residence at Gorakhpur had proper walls so the pets could not go out. So for the first time in years, we could leave the dogs in the premise without worrying about them going out of premises. On three occasions, during heavy rains, I found parts of wall falling down and the premise getinmg exposed to public. Those were harowing days, because it meant dogs could escape to busy main road and from then onwars there was no hope for seeing them again. On all these occasions, I managed to somehow keep the dogs restrained while the wall got repaired (first temporarity and then permanently). On those days, I would take them out of residence while chained. Otherwise the dogs had forgotten the experience of being chained after coming to Bilaspur.

After one year of stay at Gorakhpur, Chhote suddenly developed the desire to go on a walk out of the residence every morning and afternoon, like how it was in Izatnagar. It was from december 2019 onwards. Chhote continued to go on his walks till march 2020,

It was during the last months of 2019 that Chhote started suffering from a medical problem that initially went unnoticed. My wife feels that he had developed a tiny swelling inside his mouth on the right side. Later, on being checked, it turned out to be malignant cancer. My wife took him to a vet for treatment in early march 2020, hoping that it would help. Next date of treatment was 25 march 2020, which turned out to be the date when lockdown started in India. It was in the second week of april that the Vet clinic finally opened. When Chhote was taken to the vet, he had become quite weak and thin by then because he was not able to eat properly. He was given driops and some injections, which helped a bit, and his appetite returned a bit. He has stopped eating his normal food. My daughter suggested that he be fed soft chicken pieces. She ordered chicken biryaani online every afternoon. I would feed Chhote soft pieces morsel by morsel which he would struggle to eat. He would then drink lots of water in a bid to wash it down.

The cancerous growth was becoming bigger. It led to continuous secretion that Chhote would try to wipe on his forelimbs. So his shiny white coat wou;d get dirty and discolored. I began to give him baths every second day which gave him relief for some time before his body would once again be covered with that secretion.

Chhote was suffering. Inability to take in nourishment was telling on him. An erstwhile burly looking Chhote was getting shrunk in size which was sad to see. When I showed his video to my daughter she began to cry at his plight.

When Chhote was taken to the vet again one week later, this time he stated that it was a hopeless case. The swelling is solid swelling. Nothing can be done to reduce it- the vet stated.

So I came back and informed this fact tyo my wife on phone.

To the credit of Chhote, he endured this pain stoically. He had realised that his last time was approaching. He seemed to be reconciled to it, secure in the knowledge that we tried everything we could for him. In his prime, he would bother us for many things, but this time he had decided that he would try and be as less of a problem on us as he could help. He did not whimper once throughout his suffering.

On my part, I made sure that Chhote did not feel unwanted, unloved and uncared for because of his medical condition. He was given the same freedom as before. No quarantine, no restrictions, no stigmas. He in fact was given special attention as far as feeding him and bathing him was concerned.

When my wife and daughter first became aware of the worsening condition of Chhote, they opined that he should not be made to suffer like this and he should be given euthanasia. I opposed the idea telling them that he was eating chicken and so he was getting nourishment.

By 25th may, his condition took a turn for the worse. He stopped taking even the little nourishment he was able to take earlier. And he had become so weak that he struggled to stand on his feet.

On 26th may, I phoned my wife and informed her of Chhote’s situation. I told her that I could no see Chhote holding on for much longer. It was now I, instead of she, who broached the subject of euthanasia. My wife, from her location in MP tried to get things arranged by talking to people concerned. The feedback was that no doctor was prepared. So be it. But we needed to be ready since the end was near.

On 26th of night, Chhote struggled to move around in the hall. He tried to sit in one place, and then another, then at yet another place and so on. He did not eat anything. with some effort, he drank water.

At night, he was sleeping in the hall. Late at night, when I woke up and looked at the hall, he was not there. It meant that he had gone to some other room where he liked to stay.

Every night, I am woken up by Bhhole a few times who wants to go out to relieve himself. And I take his out. Every time I do that, more often than not, Chhote too joins in. On this night, Chhote did not come out.

Next morning, when I hardly got any sleep, I took Bhole out of residence. At about 5 AM, I mustered enough courage to venture in the direction where Chhote had gone at night. There he was, lying stone cold at the floor. He had expired, after bravely fighting off this killer disease for several weeks.

As instructed by my wife the previous day, I kept the body on Chhote’s bed, which my daughter had ordered for him online the previous year. Then I covered him with a dupatta of my wife.

My wife had phoned the concerned people. An area was located in one corner of the premise adjacent to the boudary wall. A grave was dug. Chhote along with his bed and my wife’s dupatta covering him was laid to rest in that grave. Flowers, plucked from the plants in the premise were laid on the grave. Agarbattis were lit.

When nuppy had died, it came as a sudden shock because Nuppy was young and without any ailments. Chhote’s death on the other hand was not unexpected. It had become nevitable after cancer was detected inside his mouth and it was diagnosed as incurable. The pain of losing Chhote was tempered by other feelings, viz, feeling of relief that Chhote was finally put out of the terrible misery he was going through.

Then there was the feeling that I was spared a moral dilemma of subjecting my pet to euthanasia. No doubt I wanted that in order to save the pet from further pain, but that would have still amounted to murder. I was mightily relived that I could now could keep a clear conscious. I also felt morally upright knowing that I did not lt my pet down, I did not betray him and I did not hurt his feelings while he was undergoing his suffering. He was in need of support and comfort and I tried to provide that. When I realised that his end was near then I decided not to leave him alone.I took leave from office and stayed at home in the second half of 26 may 2020. So I was at home when the end came sometime in the night of 26 may-27 may.

My daughter asked me, did Chhote sport his collar while being buried ? I replied in the affirmative. Then I realised how wise it was on my part to fit Chhote’s favourite collar around his neck. Pet dogs wear this collar proudly as a badge of honour for being a pet of a household. Chhote departed from the world, secure in the knowledge that he was sporting his favourite collar at that time.

How did Bhole react to the demise of Chhote ? In the morning of 27 may 2020. Bhole must have gone to the room where Chhote was lying dead. He must have seen that Chhote was no more alive. Bhole kept a sombre silence throughout the morning. He saw Chhote, with his bed and dupatta cover being carried out. So he knew that Chhote would no longer be around.

Chhote got a decent honorable burial with eight human beings present. If there is something like soul which watches from above, then the soul of Chhote would have felt that he was treated well in his life and also while bidding him a final farewell.

There is this concept of “Shaapit gandarv” and “shaapit dev”. In ancient mythology, some gods would anger some rishis/ munis and the rishis / munis woud curse them to get born in the Mrityulok. On request, the sentence would be reduced a bit. Like for instance, in Mahabharat, eight vasus were cursed by Rishi Vashisht that they would e born as humans. On request, it was stated by Rishi that they would hav to spend just a few moments as human, as their mother would kill them immediately and then they could be back as Vasus. Some acquaintances, who are familiar with our pets have suggested that our pets too were like such devas who were cursed by some munis that they would be born as dogs on earth. On being requested, their sentence was softened. It was ordained that they would be brought up by a kind human family that would bring them up with care and affection. It is a theory that I agree with. Chhote and Bhole, and also nuppy seem to be very special pets who possessed qualities that seem unreal in a normal cat/ dog.

So, nuppy and Chhote are back to being the devas that they were before they came into our lives. Bhole is the only one left now. He perhaps needed to serve the longest sentence of them all. Like the humans, Bhole too is remarkable well composed and is coping well with the loss. Hopefully, we will get over the loss soon. The font memories of Chhote will ofcourse linger for many years. We have not forgotten nuppy who left us eight years ago, and I am sure same will be the case with Chhote as well.

I am sad but also relieved, and philosophical about this loss. Two days have already passed. I thought that I would keep this news to myself. But then I decided that it would be a burden on my chest if I kept this fact to myself. So this writeup, the longest in the blog for some time is my effort to get the load off my chest and then resume my normal life.

I searched for a suitable somh to go with the occasion. The search led me to a song from “Pyaas”(1982).

“Pyaasa”(1982) was produced and directed by O P Ralhan for Ralhan Productions Bombay. It had Kanwaljeet, Zeenat Aman, Tanuja, Anju Mahendroo, Madan Puri, Kamini Kaushal, A K Hangal, Dheeraj Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Ram Mohan, Brahmchaari, Kamaldeep, Jagdish Raj, Devyani Thakkar, Shivraj, R S Chopra, Asha Sharma, Gauri Verma, Sunil Dhawan, Dhanraj, Maqbool, Hakeem, Ashok, Rafiq, Anil Ahuja, Rani Gill, Surjit Kaur, Shwini Kumar, Zeenat, Satyarani, Ramlal , Jimmy, Gopal Ralhan, Vinod Talwar, Ashok, Ratan Gaurang, Harendra, Kumud Tripathi, Ramesh Kumar, V K Chopra, Renu Kumar, Tarana, G Ansari, Ameer, Raj Kishore, Master Chhotu, Debut-Aaloka, Guest appearances by McMohan and Om Shivpuri.

This forgotten movie had eight songs by three lyricists. This song from “Pyaasa”(1982) is a song that seems tailormade for the sombre occasion. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Shiv Kumar Saro is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

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

With this song, “Pyaas”(1982) makes its debut in the blog.

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–——

Rising temperatures is normal in our country in the month of May. At this time of the year, we are used to seeing temperatures soaring high. Under normal circumstances, terms like ‘rising temperatures’, ‘global warming’ etc would have been ‘hot’ topic of media and general talk. But the term ‘Covid19’ has taken the wind out of the sail of the usual terms.

The current ‘lockdown’ conditions have given respite to many people from going out for work in this ‘peak summer’. However even at home now people are feeling the ‘heat’ and currently my base-station Vadodara is recording 42 to 44 degC temperature during these days. Since work at my workplace has been resumed since 21st April, I can enjoy the ‘summer’ as I did in the past, an experience that I had “missed” for the last three years thanks to my stint at Kenya for three years.

The pandemic has forced people to be more worried about the other temperature i.e. the ‘body temperature’ or ‘fever’ as we generally talk about instead of worryng about atmospheric temperature. The current situation has also brought ‘Infrared thermometers’ (‘temperature guns’:) ) to daily usage and checking of body temperature has become customary for all venturing out of home for work. For me it is checked at our company bus stop then after arrival at workplace and before leaving the workplace. (Nose masks, Sanitisers and Handwash have also become a part of life now.)

Coming back to the ‘fever’ or ‘bukhaar’ it so happened recently that family members of one of our family friends were admitted to hospital in anticipation of ‘Covid19’. Since one of the family members was working in health department it was easy for ‘Corona’ to attack this person first. Because of to this one-person other family members also got infected and one by one they were admitted to hospital (thank god all of them have recovered and they are now back to home fully ‘fit’ after getting treatment). Since my daughter has her friend from this family, I was enquiring with her everyday about their health, after returning from office. One day she told me that her friend’s father is having ‘fever’ and the temperature was around 100. I do not know from where, but I immediately said “well, no need to worry’ the danger level is more or ‘104’ I think?”

Since she has been a ‘science student’ (more a ‘doodle artist’ now) I asked, “Is there anything that 104-degree fever is dangerous”. Guessing where I was heading, she immediately asked me is there any song on that? Or a movie I had in mind? “‘jinko filmon aur gaanon ka bukhaar ho, unke dimaag mein to hameshaa gaane hi chalte rahenge na?” (and now my family members have taken it as ‘normal’ for me 🙂 )

Yes, I know it there was a song something like … “ek sau chaar bukhaar!!!”

Though I said it but even I had not visited or listened to this song for many years or I should say almost thirty-six or thirty-five years now. I only remember the lines “ek sau chaar bukhaar, ek sau chaar bukhaar”.  I remember there was this song which I had listened to, and it was a part of all ‘disco’ compilations then in 1982-1983 or 1983-1984. But I had forgotten it after that, but the current ‘pandemic’ reminded me of this song. We are going to listen and enjoy this song today. Fortunately, the audio and a partial video link of this song was available when I looked for it.

I was not aware about any other details of this song like the movie, singers etc. I was only remembering its line “ek sau chaar bukhaar”. From the audio I got to the movie name this song was from and from the movie name I found the movie details in HFGK Vol-VI. The movie name is ‘Sugandh’ – must be an obscure movie, I think.

“Sugandh-1982” was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Madras. He was also the producer of this movie and cinematographer too. This movie has Shakti Kapoor, Aarti Gupta, Anand Balraj, Paintal, Bindu, Birbal, Sunil Thapa, Gulshan Grover, Leena Das, Heena Kausar, Goga Kapoor, Prem Bedi, Mukri, Kasuhik Basin, Poornima, Amrish Puri and others. HFGK mentions that this movie was based on a novel ‘Khilaadi’ by writer Rajvansh. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.07.1982 with restricted viewing i.e. with ‘A’ Certificate.

As per information of this movie provided in HFGK, it has total seven songs in it. Lyricist Ramesh Pant wrote four songs and lyricist Farooque Kaiser wrote three songs for this movie. This song is written by Ramesh Pant, The seven songs include one song in two parts. Music of this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri and Anil, Arun and Bansari Lahiri were his assistants in music of this movie. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Shubha Dhote and SP Balasubramanian had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

1982-83 was the year of matriculation for me, and I remember that after finishing the exams we were relaxed and that time the we were regularly listening song on radio and around. And I remember that the songs of ‘Nikaah’ and ‘Disco Dancer’ were heard very frequently then and so were there many disco numbers, as ‘Disco’ wave and ‘Bappi Da’ era had already ‘taken-off’. Going by the date this movie was passed by Censor Board and guessing its releasing time I think the songs of this movie were over shadowed by the songs of the movie ‘Disco Dancer’ (1982) which came in December that year (passed by Censor Board on 10.12.1982).

On this auspicious 4321st day for the blog, let us get introduced to movie number 4300 on the blog with this song 🙂

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar with his characteristic style and gusto. Enjoy how every time he sings ‘disco o o o’ and ‘ek sau chaar bukhaar’ in this song. On screen Anand Balraj is lip syncing in Kishore Kumar’s voice and accompanying him performance is Leena Das while we can see Mukri, Paintal, Gulshan Grover and others present in picturization of this song.

Enjoy this foot tapping disco song. . .

[Ed Note: With this song, ‘Sugandh’ (1982) becomes the 4300th movie whose songs are represented in the blog.]

Blog Day: 4270 Post No.: 15499

———————————————–——————————-
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day : 4240 Post No. : 15456

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 9
——————————————————————————

We have two movies that qualify to be covered Under the ‘Blog Ten Year challenge 2010-2020’ today (26 february 2020). One is the ‘1958’ movie ‘Chaubees Ghante’ and the other movie is from the ‘Seventies’ i.e. ‘Ahsaas-1979’.

‘Ahsaas’ was released in ‘1979’ that is when I was above eleven years old. Since the movie was released with ‘restricted viewing’ means we had no chance of watching and discussing this movie among out not yet adult friend circle.

One song from this movie was frequently played on radio and had also make its mark in the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ (it ranked eighteenth in the annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1980). Unlike the movie, its songs were not deemed restricted for adult listening. So listened to this song a lot. This song was the main reason why I and others adolescents like me remembered the name of this movie. That song was ‘sapnon ke shahar ham banaayenge ghar’. I think that this this was the only popular song from this movie at that time.

‘Ahsaas-1979’ was directed by S.K. Suri for ‘Sippy Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. S.K. Suri or Surendra Suri also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. It was produced by G.P. Sippy.

(Atul ji has mentioned in his post here that this movie from the Sippy’s came in between ‘Sholay-1975’ and ‘Shaan-1980’. But with newcomers and also with a new music team).

The cast of ‘Ahsaas’ include the new comers Dina, Parvez, Rakesh Bedi, Kiran Vairale, Sahil and Rita Rani Kaul.

This movie had special appearances of Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Simmi, Bindiya Goswami, Bindu, Simple Kapadia and Amjad Khan.

The other supporting cast include Chand Usmani, Leela Mishra, Sunder, Mohan Sheri, Asha Potdar, Arun Desai, Deepak, Raj, Sanjay Kaushik, Ashok Junior, K.S. Deshpande and Dina Nath.

M.S. Shinde was the editor of this movie (He was also the editor of ‘Sholay-1975’).

Dialogues of this movie were written by Suraj Sanim.

This movie had six songs written by Indeevar (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1979.

So far four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

During the preparation of this post I also listened to other songs from this movie. I had not paid attention to them earlier though I might have heard them earlier. I discovered that the other songs are also good, particularly today’s song which appears familiar. Among other songs the first song of the movie which starts with the title is also a nice one and seems to be inspired from ‘ye dosti ham nahin todenge’ (the music is nice but may be the song didn’t get much attention since the movie didn’t go well with the audiences).

Coming back to the songs posted on the blog ten years back, three songs were discussed on that day :-

Hullo Atuldom

Back after a small absence where I terribly missed my favourite addiction- writing for the blog. Various reasons, primary being a minor mishap which has put my right hand in cast, and taken me away from the comfort of my desktop. But here I am, at the first available opportunity, when I got a few minutes with my computer. I have promised myself that I will write a very short post and obey the well-meaning advice of my friends of the blog and outside of the blog.

This post is to remember the female superstar of Indian Film Industry whose anniversary it is on 24th February. The star who was also a National award-winning actress, who had highly emotive eyes, a fabulous hold on comedy and a dancer of a calibre of her own, left us shocked by departing from this mortal world on this date two years ago. She made a beautiful pair with all her co actors be it Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil and other ladies as also Kamalhasan, Rajnikanth, (who were her co-stars in her debut film as an adult)and all the actors of her times in the Indian film industry- name any hero or actor and you can have a movie of hers with him irrespective of the language. We have her in at least one movie with even Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Nasiruddin Shah, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt etc. It is difficult to point out who she paired successfully with or was eye-catching with.

Today’s song featuring this superstar/ actress is from an inane-typical-masala Bollywood dishoom-dishoom film that released in 1990. It was produced by MP Jain and directed by Shibu Mitra. It had a star cast which was led by Sridevi and Dharmendra along with Sonam, Chunky Pandey, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Anupam Kher, AmrishPuri, Dara Singh, Satyen Kappu as the masalas of the movie.

The music director was the flavour of those years -Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. I haven’t seen “Naakabandi”(1990) and don’t intend to either but I remember two songs from the movie – one by Usha Uthup and another is by Asha Bhonsle.

Today’s song is by Asha Bhonsle. It shows Sridevi’s dancing and emoting expertise. I am sure Saroj Khan would have been the choreographer. The situation of the song seems to be an audition in front of Sadashiv Amrapurkar (hope I am right in recognising) but is a stage song. But definitely Anjaan has given an appropriate description Sridevi through the song – she was “kamaal” in all departments of acting.

As I was seeing the video of the song, I kept feeling “how sweet?” specially at the point where she mouths Gabbar Singh’s dialogues and we have Sambha (Mcmohan) and Kaalia (VijuKhote) reacting. Really pleasing choreography.
Missing you Sridevi

Hullo Atuldom

Sometimes a sudden tune or memory or word sends the mind looking for a song or visual connection. So, a few days back it was a tune in my head that sent me looking for today’s song. I remembered, rather vaguely, that the song had Ashok Kumar dancing away merrily. I remember having seen it eons ago on Doordarshan – the one source of most of my nostalgia.

I hunted down the song. I found the name of the movie it was from. Searched for it on YouTube. Enjoyed my first encounter with that movie thoroughly. It has been listed on IMDB.com under “action, crime, drama” genre. It should also have been categorised as “comedy”.

The movie had a huge cast- a set of dancing actresses headed by Shashikala, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Helen, Jayshree T., Meena T. and Shubha Khote & Manorama. The male line up was headed by Ashok Kumar, Ranjeet, Sujit Kumar, Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Jagdeep, Viju Khote, Krishan Dhawan, Chandrashekhar, Coca Cola, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Yusuf Khan (Zabisco from Amar Akbar Anthony), Babban, Pakoda Kader etc. There were a few more known faces which were billed as guest appearance- Amjad Khan, special appearance- Danny and friendly appearance -Mehmood.

There were many movies back then where we had known faces putting in appearances in these categories as a gesture to the maker of the movie. And I think I know why Mehmood did this movie as the maker S. Ramanathan had been a co-director on “Bombay to Goa”.

This movie begins on a night where Ranjeet (one of the serious persons throughout the movie) is hatching a plot to steal diamonds from the vault of Pinchoo Kapoor’s residence in the company of Sujit Kumar (he plays a dead body for half the movie)- that is where the crime angle is. As the plan is being executed Pinchoo Kapoor is shot dead (crime angle again). But he Dials 100 with the help of his pet Pomeranian -that is one intelligent pet which has a good part to play in helping recognize the lost daughters of the family. That is when the ‘drama angle’ comes into play when the pet recognizes one daughter because of her locket, takes her to the bungalow where the loyal servant of the house enquires about the girl whose photo is in the locket. Further family-drama comes into play when it turns out that the girl in possession of the above mentioned locket is also the younger daughter of the family and in the absolute climax of the movie the sisters unite and with the aide of the hero and practically the entire cast catches Ranjeet and hands him over to the cops headed by Krishan Dhawan and Chandrashekhar.

Of course, we have to sit through the movie, from the murder to reach the climax (only place where there is dishoom- dishoom in the movie), through a not-so-boring movie. Danny was a revelation as far as his comic timing was concerned. I will not spell here what transpires through the movie and spoil the fun for anyone who may wish to see this movie.

Today’s song features the tenants of Manorama’s apartment as they gather to wish the newly-engaged hero -heroine (every Bollywood movie worth its name needs a jodi) Vinod Mehra and Bindiya Goswami. Everyone is singing and having the time of their life except Bindiya Goswami. The song is sung by Manna Dey (for all the males present), Asha Bhonsle (for the females) and Bappi Lahiri for Vinod Mehra. Anjaan wrote the song and Bappida was the music director for this S. Ramanathan directed “Dial 100” which released on 2nd April 1982.

Here is the song where Ashok Kumar leads along with Aruna Irani and the rest of those present join. I have always loved songs where Ashok Kumar visibly enjoys himself. Let us also enjoy this song.

Thinking of Dada Moni today on his anniversary.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 90 #

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#1)

Welcome all, to this post which is another of those posts of mine that was planned way back (in February 2019, to be precise)when I presented a song from the 1977 movie ‘Paapi’.

Music for this movie ‘Paapi-1977’ was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Though I had not watched this movie ‘Paapi-1977’, I liked the song that I then presented. Today’s song, also by Bappi Lahiri, came up in the list of suggestions that appeared in ‘YouTube’ with that song.

One comments on YT on this song caught my attention. The comment was about the use of ‘flute & base guitar’ in the today’s song. When I listened to the song I was awestruck. I do not remember to have listened to this song any time before. And also, may be the movie it was from, wasn’t a successful movie this song may have been forgotten easily.

So, it was then that I decided to take up this song for presentation, and was looking for the right occasion. Later on, I decided to send it for posting on 27th November the birth day of composer, singer Bappi Lahiri (sources mentioned him as a dancer, disco musician, and actor and record producer too).

Bappi Lahiri was born on 27th November’1952 in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal to Aparesh Lahiri and Bansari Lahiri who themselves were accomplished Bengali singers and musicians. Both his parents also came from Jalpaiguri.

On 27th November’2019 Bappi Lahiri celebrated his sixty-seventh birthday!!!

Today we belatedly wishing him a ‘very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful musical life ahead’.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview), this year in 2019 he has completed fifty years in his film-music journey. He has many records on his name and also have been conferred by many many awards till now. And he is still going on – rocking.

The first Hindi movie he composed music was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I was never a big Bappi Lahiri fan, but I was actively considering writing about Bappi Lahiri compositions. The reason behind this was that here in our camp, we were listening to many of his songs (both as a composer and singer) during our regular parties and I realised that these songs were liked by many and they all have good music, particularly the ‘beats’ which people danced and enjoyed a lot. These were mainly the songs from his ‘disco era’.

One of my bosses particularly loved ‘Jeele le jeele le aayo aayo jeele le’ every time ‘bhaai ye gaana zaroor bajaana’. On one or two occasions when he was asking us to play some ‘English’ or ‘Kenyan’ music I brought him back to the songs of ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, ‘Disco Dancer’ or played other Bappi Lahiri songs.

‘Bambai se aaya mare dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was perhaps the song that first introduced me with the music of Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

Subsequently I got introduced to songs from ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc.
I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I had not watched these movies until now.

I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because they were played by my friends during the summer vacation of 1983 after our 10th board exams were over.

Bappi Lahiri had composed some nice songs in his pre-‘disco era’ that I was not aware of. Subsequently I have discovered a few such songs and I have shared afew of them on the blog.

For example, songs like ‘Ye naina ye kaajal’ from ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’, ‘Sainyya bina ghar soona’ from ‘Aangan Ki Kali-1979’ etc. were shared by me long back.

After ‘Disco Dancer’ it was ‘Himmatwaala-1983’ which I watched with my younger brothers & cousins in the summer vacations (1983) and I liked few of its songs if not all.

Then there were movies where Bappi Lahiri composed songs for the movies from ‘South’ banners where Jeetendra was the main hero. From these movies I remember, ‘Jaani Dost-1983’, ‘Haisiyat-1984’, ‘Tohfaa-1984’ and of course I like all songs from ‘Sharaabi-1984’.
I also liked some of the songs from ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’ which I watched during my stay at Akola (1983-1985).

I didn’t like the songs from ‘Mawaali-1983’. I liked one or two songs from ‘Justice Chaudhary-1983’. I did not watch these movies.

During 1983-85 when I was studying in 11th-12th standard disco music was ruling the charts in India. But I was more inclined to the golden era of HFM then and Rajesh Khanna movies, so I lost the track of many Bappi Lahiri songs and may be even not liking some of them.

However, I like one or two songs from some of the Rajesh Khanna movies where Bappi Lahiri composed the music for them and which were released from 1984-1984 onwards.
In between during this decade i.e. 1981-1990 and onwards 1990 there are movies where I like some of the songs from the movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music for. But I am not listing them here all (and maybe I will be taking them in my posts in future on Bappi Da 😊).

So, for this post when I decided to present this song from the 1980 movie ‘Saboot’ I just thought to a look on the movies released in the decade of 1971-1980 and of which the music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

During the preparation of this list I came across many movies of this period when Bappi Da had created some musical gems, that failed to get popular as the movies failed at the box office. The song under discussion is a case in example. I also realized that I liked many of his songs but I may not have given that much attention to the songs composed by him before the ‘disco era’ or even after ‘1985-1986’.

Like, when I came a across the movie name ‘Ek Ladki Badnaam Si’ which was not released, and looked for its songs, I found that already one of its songs has been posted in a detailed post on Bappi Lahiri by Sudhir ji here.

So, instead of going into the other details I will come back to the list of movies where Bappi Lahiri has given music in the decade 1971-1980 starting in 1973 with ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’. Incidentally this movie was introduced on the blog by ‘yours junior’ 🙂 only.

(Also, I got an opportunity to introduce movies ‘Paapi-1977’, ‘Ek Baar Kaho-1980’, ‘Patitaa-1980’ earlier on the blog 🙂 )

‘Saboot-1980’ was directed Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay for ‘The Bharat Pictures, Madras’

It was presented by Abbasi Brothers. It was produced by Raaj Baweja and G.H. Navani.

It had Navin Nischol, Vidya Sinha, Kaajal Kiran, Om Shivpuri and Prem Chopra.

Vinod Mehra makes a friendly appearance in this movie.

While the other cast includes Padma Khanna, Rajendranath, Paintal, Narendranath, Mohan Sherry, Sudhir Dalvi, Amar Mrudulla, Roopesh Kumar, Gauri Varma, Maruti, Mohan Choti, Trilok Kapoor, Rajkishore, Raj Mehra, Darshan, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder Tinea, Moolchand, Sheikh, Jugnu, Birbal, Albela, Azad.

Story of this movie was written by J.K. Ahuja, and Omar Khayyam Saharanpuri wrote the dialogues. Screenplay was written by Kumar Ramsay.

Bal Korde was the editor of this movie and Shyam Ramsay was his co-editor.

This movie had total five songs (including one multiple version song) written by Amit Khanna. Music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Bappi Lahiri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.02.1980 with restricted viewing certificate.

With today’s song ‘Saboot-1980’ makes its debut on the blog.

There is one more song in this movie ‘Jeena bhi koi jeena hai, jab tak tera saath nahin’ which sounds familiar to me and I listened to it and liked it too. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar and is multiple version song.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song where in Kaajal Kiran is lip syncing to Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The song is picturised on Kaajal Kiran and Navin Nischol who seems to be a little hesitant first to the invitation from Kaajal Kiran, but surrenders in the end of the song.
Kajal Kiran or Sunita Kulkarni (her real name) which I became aware only recently celebrated her sixty-first birth anniversary on 18th October (born on 18.10.1958).
She became famous with her debut in ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin-1977’. And after that went on to act in many movies but none of them got the level of ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’. And very few of them were successful to an extent. She retired from the movie scene in around end eighties.

Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay the famous of the seven Ramsay brothers jointly directed this movie. F.U. Ramsay the famous Producer was their father.
Kumar Ramsay, Keshu Ramsay, Arjun Ramsay, Gangu Ramsay and Kiran Ramsay are the other five brothers among the seven Ramsay brothers.
They mainly produced and directed ‘Horror’ movies starting with ‘Do Gaz Zameen Ke Neeche-1972’.

Tulsi Ramsay (born on 29th July’1944) passed away last year on 13th December 2018. He directed many movies and also Producer, Production Designer and Writer.
Shyam Ramsay (born on 17.05.1952) who passed away recently on 18th September 2019 was also director of many movies other than that he was also Producer, editor and writer for many movies.
I think both of them also jointly directed many movies or many movies had the director name as ‘Ramsay Brothers’. I am not mentioning more about the films they produced or directed, because that will require another detailed post.

Coming back to today’s song, the lyrics are by Amit Khanna and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri. This lovely song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar…

The date today is 15 november 2019. It was on this day thirty years ago (on 15 november 1989) that Sachin Tendulkar made his test debut. By a remarkable coincidence, it was on this day fifty years ago (viz on 15 november 1969) that Gundappa Vishwanath made his test debut as well.

A test match is being played today (15 november 2019) by India at Indore. It was while watching this match that I became aware that it was exactly thirty and fifty years ago that two Indian batting legends made their test debuts.

These batting legends enhanced the stature of Indian batting. Seeing their batting, lots of batting talents came up in India. If today Indian batting is regarded as the strongest among all test playing nations then Gundappa Vishwanath and Sachin Tendulkar have played inspirational and important roles in that. It was appropriate that Indian batsmen “celebrated” the occasion by dishing out a memorable batting performance today- they hammered 406 runs in one day of test cricket. Last one hour saw more than one hundred runs being scored as T20 rate.

This occasion needs to be celebrated in the blog too, with a suitable song. While searching for a suitable song, I became aware that “Awwal Number”(1990) was a movie that centered around cricket.

“Awwal Number”(1990) was produced and directed by Dev Anand. This movie had Dev Anand, Aamir Khan, Aditya Pancholi, Neeta Puri, Ekta, Sudhir Pandey, Vikram Gokhale, Parikshat Sahni, Ram Mohan, Anjan Srivastava, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, Sameer Khakkar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raj Kishore, Manmouji, Mac Mohan, Asha Sharma, Subbiraj, Ajit Vachchani, Aftab Shivdasani etc in it.

I was aware about the movie, but I was not aware that this movie was about cricket. It was not only about cricket, it even had a song about cricket. Just what the doctor ordered, as Ravi Shashstri, in his commentating avatar would have said.

Here is this song. It is sung by Udit Narayan, Amit Kumar and Bappi Lahiri. Amit Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

With this song, “Awwal Number”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

Thanks to Prakashchandra, I have been able to watch the video of this song. The picturisation shows that this song is picturised on Dev Anand (lip syncing in Bappi Lahiri’s voice), Aditya Pancholi (Amit Kumar’s voice) and Aamir Khan (Udit Narayan’s voice).

“Waardaat”(1981) was produced and directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Bombay. This movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Kajal Kiran, Shakti Kapoor, Kalpana Iyer, Iftekhar,Birbal, Kesto Mukherjee, Jagdeep, Prem Bedi, Manorama, Praveen Paul, Thyagraj, Randhir, Dinesh Hingoo, Prem Kumar, Sharat etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. They were sung by five singers.

Today (7 november 2019) is the 71st birthday of Usha Uthup. On this occasion, here is a song from “Waardaat”(1981). This song is sung by Usha Uthup and Bappi Lahiri. Ramesh Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Kalypana Iyer and Mithun Chakraborty.

Mithun Chakrborty enjoyed vast popularity among the chawanni chhaap movie goers of those days :). Such audiences were to be found all over India, and more so in eastern part of the country. Front stall movieoers of Bihar (including present day Jharkhand) “ditched” their own Shatrughan Sinha and became fans of Mithun Chakraborty. 🙂

I was among the small minority who did not like Mithun Chakraborty movies. 🙂

If teenagers of Maharashtra celebrated Ganpati festival, then teenagers in Eastern parts celebrated Saraswati Puja in a similarly grand way. Playing hindi movie music in these Saraswati Puja pandals used to be a major activity of these saraswati Puja festivities. Operating the record player and thus deciding which songs to play used to be a much sought after task. I had the proud privilege of being the record player operator in early 1980s at Ranchi. 🙂 I recall playing “disco” songs of those days, including the song under discussion. 🙂

Most Saraswati Puja organisers used to be academically challenged. They would bring their (largely untouched) textbooks in the pandal to be kept at the feet of goddess Saraswati, hoping that pooja thus performed would magically transfer the contents of those text books into their brains. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Waardaat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.


Song-Sab kuchh to hai sab kuchh toh thha(Josh)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum
in donon mein hai
kitna
haan kitna
haan kitna anjaana faasla
sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum mm
in donon mein hai
kitna
haan kitna
haan kitna anjaana faasla

shuru kya huyi
woh kahaani teri
khatm ho gayi ee
yeh kahaani meri
deewaana silsila
sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum mm
in donon mein hai
kitna
haan kitna
haan kitna anjaana faasla

gaa toh rahi hoon
par kyun gaa rahi hoon
gaa toh rahi hoon
par kyun gaa rahi hoon
khud se main aaj
kyun door jaa rahi hoon
afsaana diljala
sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum mm
in donon mein hai
kitna
haan kitna
haan kitna anjaana
faasla
