Today’s song is a foot tapping song from the film Fashionable wife-1959.

Nepotism,Corruption and Lack of Nationalism are the 3 ills common to most Indians.These things have been so common that not only now they are deep rooted in our behaviour, but also we have stopped considering them as vices anymore. They are a part of our life in many ways.

Corruption at every level of every aspect of our living is practiced unabashedly. From giving bribes to a policeman for breaking a traffic rule to giving bribes to get a Govt. Contract has become an easy way to replace discipline and hard work. After 15th August and 26th January, torn Indian Flags on the road and in the dustbins as well as stealing Govt. property from Railway Coaches and Govt. offices is a routine sight we come across. The plum jobs going to close relatives of big officers is no longer considered a crime !

These are very irritating matters when they concern and trouble us. If it is not concerning us, we take them philosophically !

In India these 3 criminal vices are spread to all walks of life and are found in almost every department. Can our Film Industry be far off from this ? Certainly Not !

Those already successful and adorning a high pedestal position in the film line, try to push their children or siblings into this line, irrespective of whether they have the talent or not. For others ” The Casting Couch” is seen as a kind of corruption or ‘wilful’ bribing. Making films with distorted History intentionally and glorifying the historical characters who looted India and did unlimited harm to Indians is nothing but a lack of Nationalism !

Nepotism is one ill which has been there in the films from the beginning. Bringing sons and daughters-even the wife- as actors has been there always. The Heroine of the First Indian Talkie film “Alam Ara”-1931, Zubeida had her 2 sisters and mother in the film line. One of the actors of this film- Prithviraj kapoor practically became the father of Indian films. His all sons, Grandsons, great grandsons and daughters came into films.

Acting is not a Genetic quality. It is not necessary that every successful actor or director’s children can become successful actors automatically. More often than not the star sons and daughters have (luckily) failed, saving the audience the trauma of bearing their stony presence on the silver screen. There is a long list of such failed stars, star sons and star daughters, but I quote here only a few examples.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj,Shammi and Shashi,who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony Walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup Kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti Ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of famous family members, these and so many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given fair opportunities to display their talent on the screen , but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar , which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director ,who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan. Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar . But the movie flopped ,as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan ,who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from the scene forever . His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued a film career ,but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him ,who got a chance to appear opposite illustrious heroines , unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen , no film maker came forward to sign them . Out of sight is out of mind ,it was a matter of time when the public as well as the film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, is a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951 . It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan . The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films , among hundreds of aspirants . Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge setback when Aman flopped .He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia ,opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately , Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea ,Rattan Chopra understood & wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physiques , but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards the film industry . Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting .The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke. Premender with Kumud Chhugani in Holi Aayee Re.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev kapoor, Manish kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

Among them, some film names which I remember off hand are Arjun in Malhar-51, Rattan Chopra in Aman-67,Mom ki Gudia-72, Vijay Kumar in Alif laila-54,Premendra in Holi aayee re-70, Deepak kumar in Aabroo-68, Ajay in Wapas-69, Som Dutt in mann ka meet-68, Vikram in Julie-75,Rajeev Kapoor in Raam teri Ganga maili-85, Shekhar Suman in Utsav-84, Kaycee Mehra in Chhabilee-60 and Mem Didi-61, Prashant in Sehra-63, Ashok Sharma in Hamari yaad aayegi-61, Ajit Chitnis in Aaj ki baat-55, Nusrat Kardar in Dard-47, Manish in SaraswatiChandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

All this came to my mind when I saw the film cast of Fashionable wife. The cast included Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Radhakishen, Manorama, Leela Mishra, Daisy Irani and many others. heroine Jaymala was the wife of the producer, director and the owner of the banner ‘Adarshlok’, Bombay – B.K.Adarsh. This was her Debut film as a Heroine. At first glance, one will tend to feel that being the director’s wife must have been her way to be the film’s Heroine. But to be fair, she was already in the film line before marriage, though not as a Heroine.

Jaymala was born on 21-8-1938 at kasur, Punjab. She always craved to become an actress. She came to Bombay along with a relative and got a small role in the film Mandir-1948.

Her first major film was Hazar pariyan-1957. Some of her films were Ramudada, Durga pooja, Harshchandra Taramati, Love and Murder, Spy in Rome, Rambha Haran, Balak, Sampoorna Teerth Yatra, Veer Arjun, Babruwahan, Aaj ka ye Ghar etc.

She acted in 24 films. She even sang a song in the film Fashionable wife-1959.

After marriage with Adarsh Lok,she debuted as a Heroine in FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959. She had a double role in this film.Then she continued with Adarsh Lok’s films as a Heroine only. After husband’s death, she managed his production company. Her last film was Private Life-1983, as a Heroine and a Producer. Her son Taran Adarsh is a famous film critic.

She died on 27-7-1997 in Mumbai.

It is a coincidence that my last post was also on a film where sisters were seen in double roles. Today’s film also has sisters in double roles again. The film story is…

FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959 was produced and directed by Adarsh Lok, the Music Director was the duo of Suresh-Talwar ( Assistant Johnny Gomes) and the lyricist was Bharat Vyas. Story,Screenplay and Dialogues were by Waheed Qureshi. The cast was Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Leela Mishra, Iftekar, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Radha Kishen, Manorama etc.

Girdhari and Susheela were a couple who continuously fought over only one point-how to bring their twin daughters. Susheela wanted them to be traditional and Girdhari was keen on making them ultra modern” to face the new World’. Finally the couple separated with Ragini opting for the traditional Mother and Kamini staying with her Modern Papa.

Ragini marries Balraj(Abhi Bhattacharya) and she is very happy. However her Mother in law(Leela Mishra) is not happy with her and there are daily fights, culminating in Ragini leaving her house and doing social work independently.

Kamini marries Natwar(Anup Kumar), her Dance trainer and happily lives with him, enjoying life. She has no time for any household responsibilities. She spends quite a lot arranging frequent parties. Due to all this her young devar Raju runs away from the house and Natwar is also fed up with her.

In short both the girls have a spoiled family life.

There is comic relief in the form of Manorama and Radha Kishen, who are the neighbours.

After many twists, coincidences and meaningless happenings, the girls learn their lessons. The film tries to stress that Traditional ways are always better, but they also must mix a little modernity in keeping with the times.

At the end Girdhari and Susheela unite,so do Kamini-Natwar and Balraj and Ragini.

Today’s song is sung by Jaymala and chorus. This is the only song which she ever sang in films. With this song she makes her Debut as a singer,on our Blog.

In the second half of the 50’s decade, films were deeply influenced by Rock N Roll music. This song is also like that.

Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16885

Today (18 march 2022), the blog had two guest posts so far, and both pertained to Holi. That created some confusion in my mind. I was under the impression that Holika dahan is on the night of 18/19 march and Holi is on 19 march 2022. To add to my confusion, I found out that Railway HQ in Southern Railway, Chennai was open today on 18 march 2022. It turns out that I was out of phase by one day from others. It turns out that even Chennai celebrates holiday today. It is only Southern Railway HQ in Chennai that has decided to work on this day. 🙂

When one looks at the festival category (on the right side of the blog), one finds that the blog has as many as 67 Holi related songs. The second most popular festival is Deepaawali (38 songs) and then Rakhi (24 songs). Looking at the nature of the festivals, it is not very difficult to guess why Holi is the most popular festival for Hind movie makers. It gives then a genuine reason to indulge in a song and dance sequence full of box office hit ingredients, viz color, revelry, two genders dancing together and getting wet thanks to coloured water sprinkled on them from pichkaari.

Even in real life, this festival is popular for similar reasons. And it is popular among trouble makers as well.

On this day, trains remain empty. It is so unlike the occasion of Deepaawali when trains run to full capacity and you cannot have berths in trains. I, not averse to act diferent from the masses, had once (nearly four decades ago)travelled by train on the day of Holi from Jamalpur to Patna and then from Patna to Ranchi. On normal days entering the train itself was a tall order. But on that day, I was perhaps the only occupant of those trains.

With 67 Holi songs under the belt of the blog, some people may feel that we have run out of Holi songs to cover. Nothing can be farther from the truth. There are still lots and lots of Holi songs that are not yet covered in the blog. I have already mentioned it earlier that HOli is the most popular festival among movie makers, and so Holi related songs keep appearing in Hindi movies even today. This genre of song is unlikely to go out of fashion in Hindi movies.

Prakashchandra himself has singlehandedly sent me dozens of Holi realted songs. Moreover, I have discovered some more Holi songs on my own. All these supply of Holi songs will last us for many Holi festivals. 🙂

The Holi song that accompanies this post is from “Banjaarin”(1960). This movie was produced and directed by Ratan KUmar for Ratan Produced by Ratan Kumar for Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini (Debutant), Lalita Kumari, Sunder, Indira Bansal, Chetan Kumar, Shree Bhagwan, Dalpat (in triple role), T.N.Sinha, Bagla, Murari, Prayag Dutt, Hari, Kapoor, Polson, Master Papoo, Bela, Paro, Laxminarayan, Rehana, Geeta, Meera etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Banjaarin”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pardesi (or Pardeshi).

The song is picturised as a Holi festivity song on Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini, Lalita Kumari Sinha, Indira Bansal etc.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a (somewhat belated) happy and safe Holi.

Remarks:- It was pointed out by Mr Partha Chanda, our regular visitor with a keen eyae that the same song was discussed under “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) on 5 april 2020. On checking up, that indeed turned out to be the case. On further investigation, it turned out that the song was originally intended for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957), but it could not be accomodated there. Finally this song was included in “Banjaarin”(1960) which had more or less the same starcast as “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(19557) with some changes.

I thank Nahm, our regular contributor, for pointing out this fact. Since this song was composed for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) so its lyricist is Bharat Vyas and music director is S N Tripathi, unlike other songs of “Banjaarin”(1960) where Pt Madhur is the lyricist and Pardesi is the music director.

I have now replaced the earlier post of 5 april 2020 containing the same song by another Rafi Shamshad Begam duet and penned by the same lyricist (Bharat Vyas).

Blog Day :

4987 Post No. : 16875

Today’s song is from a ‘1957’ movie namely ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’.

I have mentioned it in my earlier articles that I had the good fortune of being able to watch many black and white movies in my childhood. Recalling those days is a source of great nostalgia for me. ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ is one of those black and white classics that I watched in one of the weekly screening of movies at our colony club where we resided.

Yesterday I was browsing the blog looking for songs composed by S.N. Tripathi. That is when I came across this movie. I was surprised to note that this movie is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Three songs from the movie are still not covered on the blog.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The list of the songs from this movie is as given below (the earlier posts on the blog do not give this list hence I am giving those details in this post)

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Janam janam ke phere …saanjh savere sabko ghere, inse na koyi bache re Rafi, chorus 16.02.2013
02 Tu hai ya nahin bhagwan… kabhi hota bharosa kabhi hota bharam Lata, Rafi, Manna Dey 16.06.2012
03 Bhadak uthhi hai…aaja naag tohe man mein basaa loon Lata Mangeshkar 04.01.2020
04 Chaahe raat barsaat ho… raah se dharam ki hataanewaala kaun Lata Mangeshkar
05 Man ka andhiyaaraa… tan ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar boley Manna Dey 03.06.2012
06 Rang birangi phoolon ki jhoomein re daaliyaan… kaali kaali ankhiyon ki chhalke re Pyaaliyaan Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, chorus Being presented today
07 Aatma ki ye … zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar 25.12.2008
08 Baaj rahi shehnaayi dekho baaj rahi shenaayi Lata Mangeshkar
09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The next two songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2012’, one song was discussed in ‘2013’. After a long gap, two more songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2020’. That is how six songs from this movie have been discussed in a span of 14 years.

T most popular song from this movie was ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ and this is also the song permanently associated with this movie’s name in my mind. Other songs of the movie fail to bring similar recollections, though I may have listened to them.

Today 14th March’2022 is the one hundred and nineth birth anniversary of S.N. Tripathi or Shri Nath Tripathi (14 March 1913 – 28 March 1988), the music director of this movie.

S.N. Tripathi also an actor, as well as producer and director of several movies.

Today as a tribute on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from this movie “Janam Janam Ke Phere”.

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey. On the screen it is Manhar Desai lip-syncing in Manna Dey’s voice. I guess that the actress lip-syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice is Krishnakumari. Several other woman artists are also present in the picturisation and they lip sync in the voice of the chorus.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs in this movie.

Let us enjoy today’s beautiful composition now …

Songs at Sl. No. 6, 7, 9, 13, 14, 15, 17, 23 & 24 are not yet posted in the blog.  The song I am presenting today is at Sl. No. 17, i.e. from the film ‘Balyogi Upmanyu’ (1958).  Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this mythological film’s songs composed by Chitragupt.  Here Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar are accompanying Geeta Dutt for singing this song talking of hard work, fruits of hard work, farming, self-confidence, hope and a certain bragging attitude etc.  But the happy spirit of the song is infectious, and one can listen to it again and again.

The following 2 songs of this movie are posted in the blog, making this the 3rd song.

Baalyogi Upmanyu(1958)(2/8) MD-Chitragupta

Duniya Ke Anyaaiyon Anyaay Ki Hoti Khair Nahin

Mann Nirgun Ke Geet Ab Gaata Jaa

I found this song a few days ago, while looking for Chitragupt-Rafi songs, and I thought it is a very enjoyable and nice composition.  All three singers are in sync with the accompanying chorus.  I need to post some solos to even out the series.  There are too many songs by Geeta Dutt in obscure films.  I have not done bad so far, considering the songs were all new songs for me.   Hope to find some known, popular songs not yet posted to fit in the series.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a C grade film called Baghi Sardar (1956).

I remember once Atul ji had expressed his opinion that ‘many times the B and C grade films provide A grade music’. I tend to agree with his opinion on this issue. There are many examples of songs from costume, stunt, action and religious films which became very popular. Off hand I remember at least two songs. The first was “Zara Saamne To Aa O Chhaliye” from a religious film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957). It was sung by Lata and Rafi, written by Bharat Vyas and music was by SN Tripathi. This song not only became very popular, but it became the No. 1 song on Binaca Geet Mala for 4 weeks. The second was a Rafi song “Parwardigar e Aalam, Tera Hi Hai Sahara” from the film ‘Hatimtai’ (1956). There was another song also from this film”Jhoomti Hai Nazar Jhoomta Hai Pyaar” which too became very popular. This was a costume film.

Another example comes to my mind. A qawwaali from the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958), a costume film. This qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” became very famous. This song also had the prestigious honor of being the 5000th song for this Blog on 13-11-2011. Further, it had an unique honor of having write ups from 3 stalwarts, namely Atul ji, Sudhir ji and Raja ji. Incidentally, earlier in 1935 also there was a film Al Hilal, first directorial venture of the great Mehboob Khan. This was a film made by Sagar Movietone. The songs of this film also became very popular. However, since the playback had not yet started then, no records were issued for these songs.

I used to like watching religious films because of the trick scenes of the films. I liked stunt and action films for their death defying stunts by the actors and I saw costume films because of their King, Queen and evil Vazir stories. Children liking such films, for the reasons given here, is understandable, but I wondered how adults and grown up people came to see such films. Later I learnt that there is a child hidden in every adult.

This child in some adults gets excited with magic, supernatural strength and fighting. Such people constituted the audience of B and C grade films. The audience for religious films constituted old adults, and ladies, who believed in God’s power. Film makers all over the world have always taken such people as their targets and films were made to attract them and satisfy their emotions.

Right from the First Silent film ‘Raja Harishchandra’ (1913), films have been made on religious stories. A vast nation like India provides plenty of folk tales and all these have been used to make films. In addition, Arabian Night stories of 1001 was yet another bumper source of masala for making interesting films. The 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and to some extent the 60’s had been making stunt / action / costume / religious films. In early films, till film ‘Aan’ (1952), the actors working in the films used to do all the stunts themselves. From this film, use of doubles and fight masters/composers started being used. In film ‘Aan’, the fights and the horses were managed by Azim Bhai and Douglas took care of fight scenes involving fencing. Same year, in films like ‘Sinbad Jahaazi’ (1952) and ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo) (1952), the south developed hero Ranjan (real name Ramnarayan Venkatraman Sarma) appeared on Hindi scene in Bombay and entertained us with his Olympic level fencing fights. Earlier he was seen in ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), ‘Nishan’ (1949) and ‘Mangala’ (1949) – remakes of their Tamil films. In the subsequent years these Fight Masters became ‘Action Directors’.

In the films from 1935 to the 1950s, Nadia and others used to perform the stunts themselves. In the 60’s – a decade dominated by romantic films, for heroes, the action was mostly relegated to the climax scenes to rescue the ‘Damsels in Distress’ ! The 60’s also saw the emergence of ‘The Action Hero’. The first film, where a hero dared to bare his chest for the first time, was in film ‘Phool Aur Patthar” (1966) and the action hero was born with Dharmendra !

The set of actors, directors, producers, banners and even the audience was fixed for such films. Certain theaters were earmarked to exhibit such films in every city and small town. Some heroes of these action films, later on, became directors for such movies e.g. Majnu, Kamran, Daljit, John Cavas etc. ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956) was also directed by Majnu, who started his talkie film career with a parody film ‘Majnu’ (1935). Though his original name was Harold Lewis, he was branded as Majnu and he too continued with this name.

MAJNU – Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. It is said that before joining films, Harold had worked in circus as a joker. He acted in 3 Silent films, including ‘Flames Of Flesh’ (1930).

He was the childhood friend of Roop K Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film, he chose Harold as the hero. Majnu was introduced as a leading man opposite Shyama Zutshi by producer/director Roop K Shorey in film ‘Majnu’ (1935) — a musical comedy satirizing the old story of Laila Majnu, produced, directed and shot in Lahore with Ghulam Haider as music director. With daring motorbike stunts and special effects, audiences were thrilled at the sight of Majnu strapped on the railway tracks by the villain.

The film was a success and RK Shorey repeated Majnu as the leading man in his next film, ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ (1938). ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ was hailed as the best jungle picture ever produced in India at the time. Filmed in the snowy Himalayas, the film topped its predecessor in its action sequences and placed Punjab on the entertainment map of India and the world.

Majnu appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films. He was also doing films with other producers. In 1942 he did a double role in ‘Nishani’ and in 1943 he directed his first film ‘Paapi’. Shorey also gave him a film ‘Badnami’ (1946) for direction and it was here that Majnu met IS Johar who wrote the story and dialogues of ‘Badnami’.

Majnu paired with IS Johar in ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956). His last film with Johar was ‘Akalmand’ (1966).

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was ‘Majnu’ (1935) and his much delayed and released last film was ‘Shri Krishna Bhakti’ (1973). He acted in many Punjabi films also. He directed 8 films including ‘Paapi’ (1943), ‘Badnami’ (1946), ‘Son Of Alibaba’ (1955), ‘Tatar Ka Chor’ (1955), ‘Malika’ (1956), ‘Basre Ki Hoor’ (1956), ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956), and his last film – ‘Chandu’ (1958).

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The cast of this film consisted of Daljit, Chitra, Majnu, Ameeta, Amarnath, Prithvipal, Shaikh, Helen, Kammo, Satish Batra, Ramesh Thakkar, Shakuntala, Kanchanmala, Jugal Kishore etc. The music for this film was given by composer BN Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this BN Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films – HCBali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering KL Saigal in the early 30s.

BN Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer and was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from ‘Bedard’ (1949) up to ‘Do Dilwaale’ (1973), a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film ‘Bahut Door’ (1940s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973. Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, BN Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

“Jab Un Ka Khayal Aata Hai”, sung by Rafi in ‘Pehla Pehla Pyar’ was a copy of Rafi’s “Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai” by Hansraj behl. “Sapne Meine Saiyan Tum Aaya Na Karo” – Asha / Manna Dey song was a true copy of OP Nayyar’s “Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya”, and “Tu Us Ka Kar Bhala” – Rafi in ‘Raja Vikram’ sang the same “Bhagwaan” tune as in “O Duniya Ke Rakhwaale” etc.

Today’s song also resembles some song, but I am unable to recollect exactly. If some reader recognizes the original song, please mention as your comment here.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. From the sounds of it, this song could have been picturised on actors playing Arjun and Uttara, with Arjun teaching Uttara music under the disguise of Brihannala.

Today (4 november 2021) is the Deepaawali, the festival of lights.

Believe it or not, this happens to be the 14th deepaawali for the blog ! To last this long as a blog is quite an achievement.

During the occasions of previous deepaawalis, we have discussed as many as 37 deepaawali songs. All popular Deepaawali songs, including iconic songs have been covered in the past.

When I checked up the past Deepaawali articles, I realised that I had covered many interesting topics while discussing deepaawali. One of those topics was air quality or lack thereof. It is considered a topical subject because whenever Deepaawali arrives, messages spring up in Indian social media telling us that firecrrackers that we burst during deepaawali pollutes the environment.

Of late, there have been some studies that have pointed out that pollution in India is not because of Deepaawali, which lasts for just one day but because of other reasons, that take place over longer durations.

The real cause for pollution in India is like this- 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

There is this 80-20 principle, or Pareto principle which states that 20 percent activities give 80 percent of the results. So, we need to take care of these 80 % results and address the 20 percent activities that are causing them. So, if we in India are serious about improving air pollution, then we have to address the major contributors namely industrial activities, vehicle pollution and crop burning. Singling out Deepaawali, when 95 % of pollution is contribued by other activitites is hypocrisy and dishonesty on the part of these activists with selective agenda.

These activists would want us to believe that Indian cities are the most polluted and India is the most polluted country, because it is the only major country that celebrates Deepaawali.

I visited a site (iqair.com) that displays Air Quality index for major cities as well as nations. What I found in that site was quite revealing.

According to it, the top 15 most polluted cities of the world (at 8 AM on 4 november 2021) are :

SN Major City US AQI US AQI Classification
1 Lahore, Pakistan 289 Very unhealthy
2 Delhi, India 213 Very unhealthy
3 Beijing, China 199 unhealthy
4 Karachi, Pakistan 179 unhealthy
5 Kolkata, India 179 unhealthy
6 Shenyang, China 171 unhealthy
7 Dubai, United Arab Emirates 170 unhealthy
8 Mumbai, India 169 unhealthy
9 Wuhan, China 161 unhealthy
10 Dhaka, Bangladesh 160 unhealthy
11 Kabul, Afghanistan 158 unhealthy
12 Kathmandu, Nepal 152 unhealthy
13 Jakarta, Indonesia 150 unhealthy
14 Sofia, Bulgaria 139 unhealthy for sensitive groups
15 Kuwait City, Kuwait 132 unhealthy for sensitive groups

In the top 15 major cities, three Indian cities and one Nepali city figure. Other cities do not celebrate Deepaawali.

When I looked at the list of the most polluted countries in the world, I found that India is third in the list. The first two countries above India are our neighbours and they do not celebrate Deepaawali at all.

SN Country US AQI in 2020 (average) US AQI in 2019 (average) US AQI in 2018 (average) Population
1 Bangladesh 77.10 83.30 97.10 164, 689,383
2 Pakistan 59.00 65.80 74.30 220, 892,331
3 India 51.90 58.10 72.50 1,380,004,385
4 Mongolia 46.60 62.00 58.50 3,278,292
5 Afghanistan 46.50 58.80 61.80 38,928,341
6 Oman 44.40 5,106,622
7 Qatar 44.30 2,881,060
8 Kyrgyzstan 43.50 33.20 6,524,191
9 Indonesia 40.70 51.70 42.00 273,523,621
10 Bosnia Herzegovina 40.60 34.60 40.00 3,280,815
11 Bahrain 39.70 46.80 59.80 1,701,583
12 Nepal 39.20 44.50 54.10 29,136,808
13 Mali 37.90 20,250,834
14 China 34.70 39.10 41.20 1,439,323,774
15 Kuwait 34.00 38.30 56.00 4,270,563

So one can see that countries that do not celebrate deepaawali in their lands are even more polluted than India, the country that celebrates deepaawali. So the people who preach India about celebrating deepaawali should train their guns elsewhere if they are actually environment conscious.

It also shows that the reasons for pollutions lie elsewhere. It is indiscipline and third worldly lack of environmental awareness that is the major cause of pollution in these countries. Some of these countries claim to be progressing on the basis of vague figures of GDP per capita or Human development index, but when one looks closely, it turns out that these countries are plucking low hanging fruits, while disregarding pollution laws, minimum wages laws, safety laws etc.

If one wants to have an idea of the development of a country, the best way to gauge its development is its Air Quality Index(AQI). If one looks at the above tables, one finds that all the top polluting countries and cities are third world countries and their cities. Countries that are developed do not figure at the top. Even advanced nations neighbouring third world nations have good AQI while their neighbouring third world countries have poor AQI figures. Some examples of such advanced economies surrounded by third world economies are Israel and Singapore.

So unless a country addresses its environment and cleans up its air, it will not become a developed nation. India is definitely not going to become a developed nation any time soon, seeing its AQI. Same is true for China as well. Their GDP figures may look impressive, but it is gradually coming out that much of their GDP figures may be manipulated and fake. When one looks at AQI index of China, we find that China does figure among the top polluting nations, so it means that China is developing by disregarding enviroment. Sooner or later nature will get back at China. We can already see signs of that happening.

India needs to address its pollution problems, but for that, we first need to identify the real causes of pollution, instead of getting influenced by people with agendas.

I will discuss these matters in detail in future posts.

I have also discussed in the past that Deepaawali, where Goddess Laxmi is worshipped, is best celebrated if we worship Goddess Saraswati first. Worshipping Goddess Saraswati means getting educated, learning skills, upgrading our skills and becoming productive. Then we need to make use of our skills by producing goods and services, which is basically worshipping Lord Vishwkarma. When our goods and services get bought by consumers then we get money in return, or in other words, we are blessed by Goddess Laxmi.

Advanced nations, that figure low down in the list of polluting countries, follow the correct procedure of worshipping Goddess Laxmi. Much of their effort is on research and development (worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and then manufacturing goods or providing services ( worshipping Lord Vishwakarma). They do not consciously worship Goddess Laxmi, but Goddess Laxmi blesses them much more than she blesses Indians who seek to worship her just on the day of deepaawali, without first investing in worshipping Goddess Saraswati and Lord Vishwakarma.

So, I always try to tell my fellow Indians (who care to listen) that we are not worshipping Goddess Laxmi the right way. We need to worship her the way advanced Western countries worship her. Symbolic worship on one particular day will not do. Our worship should be round the clock throughout the year, and it should be to keep upgrading ourselves and keep giving goods and services that are in demand worldwide.

The festival of deepaawali, as it is celebrated in India, is easily the most important festival for Indian economy. Now that the effects of Covid 19 virus on India are receding, this deepaawali festival is likely to give a big boost to Indian economy, which is looking up after a forgettable year. I hope that the worst is over for India as well as the rest of the world.

On this occasion, I discuss a song from “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976). This movie was directed by Vijay Sharma for Pearl Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Anita Guha, Chaand Usmani, Sapru, Sujata, B M Vyas, S N tripathi, Renu, Sundar, Bharhchaari, Dilip Dutt, Neelam, Sheikh, Anant Marathe, Helen, Dalda, Hari Shukla, Narmada Shankar , Habeeb etc. The movie also had special appearances by Jagdeep, Mahipal and Jeewan.

“Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie. This son, the theme song of the movie, is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Kanan Kaushal and others.

With this song, “Jai Mahalaxmi Maa”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deepaawali. Let us give our best (my way of worshipping Goddess Saraswati) and I am sure she will shower her wishes on us in abundant measure.
