Blog Day : 3509 Post No. : 14100

Every morning I walk my pets by turns. That is a good time for thinking and getting interesting thoughts. I realised that our blog centuries (when they are taking place at their normal pace) are like lunar months. In the past, we would complete our centuries in 15-16 days which was like one paksh of a lunar month. Nowadays we are taking nearly twice as long to complete a century. In other words, our centuries these days take as long as a lunar month. In other words, these days we are getting one century post per month.

It is different this month. In this month of february 2018, we had touched post number 14000 on the very first day. Today, towards the fag end of february 2018, we reach the next century, viz 14100th post in the blog. It is rare to have two full moons in one month and that has led to the phrase “once in a blue moon”. January 2018 was a blue moon month as far as two full moons were concerned. February 2018 is a “once in a blue moon” month for the blog as far as appearance of two century posts is concerned. When I checked up, I found that the last time we had two century posts in a month was in april 2017. 🙂

Whenever one is dealing with big numbers, one cannot help but devise some statistical tools to judge one’s performance. In limited overs cricket, we have strike rate. In this blog, I have devised a term called blog strike rate. Blog strike rate is nothing but the number of songs per day. One can divide the number of song posts by the number of days in which these posts appeared. We are going at a strike rate of just over 4 songs a day throughout the existence of the blog.

Then there are other interesting statistical analysis that are possible. For instance, number of songs that were created in a year and the number of songs from that year that are covered in the blog. Another variation is number of movies that were released in a year and the number of movies of that year that are represented in the blog. For instance, the year 1964 had 99 movies and 671 songs. The blog has 90 of these movies and 422 of these songs represented in the blog. 44 of these movies are already YIPPEED. So 46 up YIPPEED movies plus nine unrepresented movies from 1964 remain to be covered in the blog.

Covering the as yet unrepresented songs may not be as simple and straightforward as it may appear to the uninitiated. For instance, the nine missing movies of 1964 are rare movies. Sudhir Jee is on a mission to cover the missing movies of 1960s. In two years and three months he has covered more than 60 missing movies of 1960s in the blog. There were 929 movies released in 1960s. As many as 808 of them are covered in the blog with 361 of them already YIPPEED. So just over one hundred movies of 1960s are yet to be covered in the blog. We are making progress regularly. Still a stage will come when we will end up a few movies and a few hundred songs short because of unavailability of the remaining movies and /or songs. In all some 6521 songs were created in 1960s. The blog has 3488 of them. Just over 3000 songs of 1960s remain to be covered.

The decade of 1950s is the most well represented in the blog. 1111 movies are 8654 songs were created during this decade. The blog has 996 movies and 4627 songs represented in the blog, with 348 of these movies already YIPPEED.

Another statistics that is of great interest to me is the number of artists represented in the blog.The lyricists, singers and music directors represented in the blog add up to over 2000. The number of artists on whom these songs were picturised, or who helped create these movies also add up to a considerable number.

Well known artists find considerable representation in the blog. In addition, the blog also gives coverage and recognition to artists who are lesser known and even obscure.

This century songs seeks to recognise the contribution of one of the lesser known artist. This artist is Johny Whisky. This name is obviously inspired from Johny Walker. Johny Whisky (8 february 1932- 7 december 2006), originally named Sheikh Zennul Abdeen, has figured in bit roles in lots of movies starting from 1960s till 1990s. He worked in bit roles and he was too insignificant an actor unlike Johny Walker who tended to have at least one song earmarked for himself in ever movie. Still, Johny Whisky’s voice has been used in a few songs. Johny Whisky got to lend his voice in a song in “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo” (1963), viz. Chal chal chal mere dil and in a song in “Anjaam”(1968) viz. Mubaarak ho tumko ye jungle puraana.

The song under discussion is one where Johny Whisky is the main singer. Johny Whisky plays a eunuch who in India tend to look for houses with newborns. They would reach that house armed with dholaks and sing “badhaai”. That is the main occupation of this third gender in India.

The song is a “badhaai” song which is sung by Johny Whisky and chorus. Though only the audio is availabble, but it is clear that the song is picturised on Johny Whisky and others playing “hijdas”. Though this song is mentioned as a traditioan song, Sahir Ludhianvi is credited as the lyricist of this song in Akshay Manwani’s ‘Sahir Ludhianvi- The People’s Poet’.

Music is composed by C Arjun.

This song is the fifth and final song from the movie so this doubles up as the YIPPEE movie of the day as well.

Here are the details of the earlier songs from the movie covered in the blog.

Blog Day : 3490 Post No. : 14019

The film ‘Sushila’ of 1966 – and a peculiar turn of events as we tried to ‘Yippeee’ this film, earlier on 26th January. And then there is another very interesting quirk related with this post and this Yippeee action today.

After having done our due diligence and concluding that about 10 days back, we were ready to Yippeee this film, I was preparing the post for the song “Satyamev Jayate”, the then final pending song of this film. It is a nationalistic song, and I was working to publish this song on 26th Jan, and also do the honors of Yippeee-ing this film.

Just a chance examination of the folder of the songs of this film in my collection, and I was surprised to see that there is an extra song sitting in there. A little surprised, I started checking for more information. After some back and forth across the pages of Geet Kosh itself, I was able to locate the information. Actually, this song is listed in the corrigenda (appendix of corrections) of the volume IV, as an addition to the list of songs of this film. And so, we established that the film ‘Sushila’ actually has seven songs and not six. So the plans for that day were changed. A different film was Yippeee’d that day. And now, today is the turn of this film to join the band of Yippeee’d films.

As we take a look the list of songs of this film, I must say that it is a very impressive list of some very wonderful songs. Check out the list of songs posted so far.

 

Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein Sushila 2552 22-Jun-10
Bemurawwat Bewafaa Sushila 3755 9-Apr-11
Bahut Khoobsoorat Hain Aankhen Tumhaaree Sushila 5216 29-Dec-11
Nazar Nawaaz Nazaaron Mein Kho Gaya Hoon Main Sushila 5274 9-Jan-12
Gori Milna Ho Milna Re Nadiya Ke Paar Sushila 6539 29-Aug-12
Satyamev Jayate Satyamev Jayate Sushila 13978 26-Jan-18

 

Each one of the above listed songs is a wonderful gem. And so is the final addition to this list, being uploaded and posted today. This song was hitherto not available online. Well let me correct that. The song is available on YouTube, albeit as a part of the 4th Nov, 2017 edition of Bhoole Bisre Geet broadcast on AIR FM Gold, which is a special program honoring the music director C Arjun.

The song is sung by Asha Bhosle. Lyrics are from the pen of Indeewar. It is a very poignant mother-child song. It could have been a lorie, a lullaby in the film, but I cannot be sure. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information about the on screen performance of this song, and also about the film itself.

Now let me add one more very peculiar twist to this scenario. Based on information in the footnotes, it seems that the film ‘Sushila’ was possibly re-released with a different title, at a later point in time. There is a film from 1977, listed in the Geet Kosh – titled ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’. As we compare the information entries for these two films, we find that the list of songs is identical. The information about singers of individual songs, the names of the lyricists, and the name of music director, are also identical.

The other item of information that is identical is the name of the director of the films. Interestingly enough the production banner is different. ‘Sushila’ is released under the banner of Shri Vinayak Chitra of Bombay, whereas ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ is released under the banner of Shri Devo Films, Karnataka. The cast of actors, which is listed only for the latter film, reads like Kumar, Ram Kumar, Harman, Sheila, Lal Bahadur, Ranjeet Budhkar, Shivaji Jadhav, Ashu, Mahesh Raj, Prabhakar, Moolchand, Sandeep, Uma Khosla, Jeet, Dubey, Sinha, Firoza, K Raghunath, Krishan Duggal, Shobha, Dilip Dutt, Chhotu Sawant, Chandrakant, S Jairaj, Surekha Naik, Inderkumar Bhatia, Prakash Inamdar, Ramdas Padhey, Shabana, and Nayan Tara.

So now I have a poser specifically for Atul ji. As per the Geet Kosh information, it is a possibility that these two films are actually the same. Looking at the list of songs, well they are identical. And yet, being released separately under different production banners, and also being titled differently – are these two films?

So then, is it the case that we have the most peculiar and a most unique circumstance, wherein we are Yippeee’ing two films – at the same time. Wo wo. . . this is going to be a first, and probably the last such occasion where we are able to Yippeee two films that are distinctly and separately listed in the Geet Kosh. Most interesting circumstance. If yes, then this post has to be marked as a very unique post indeed.

What say Atul ji, – shall we Yippeee two films with this one post, today. 🙂

Song – Mere Aanchal Ka Diya  (Sushila) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – C Arjun

Lyrics

mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
tere badle mein agar chaand miley

mere anmol rattan ae
mere badhte huye dhan
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya

tere kaajal ki lakeeron mein hai

Blog Day : 3479 Post No. : 13978

The blog activities have picked up pace quite a bit in this new year. Almost all contributors are quite active. I hope this pace is sustained, and does not peter out like the enthusiastic short term flings of the resolutioners. Gajendra ji had commented that it generally is a euphoria that lasts about a week into the new year. But in this case, ‘रब नजर ना लगाए’, we seem to be going great guns for over three weeks now. So far, it portends all good for the continuing activity. Now only if responses in the comments column also pick up pace. 🙂

Greetings to all readers and friends, on the occasion of marking the Republic Day event of our country.

In the notes exchanged with Atul ji over the past week, it comes about that the 1966 film ‘Sushila’ is just one song short of being a Yippeee film on the blog. And quite fortunately, the remaining song in the list is actually very appropriate for the celebration of 26th January. Scrambling to locate this song, we are unsuccessful to find it posted online. And so the quick decision was to upload the song, post it for 26th January celebrations and in the process add one more to the list of Yippeee’d films.

In the process of realizing this plan, as I checked the songs folder for this film in my collection, I was in for a very peculiar surprise. I checked and checked again with the Geet Kosh and also with the list of songs available on the blog. There had to be an error somewhere. Actually, the songs folder in my collection was showing one song extra than the 6 songs that are supposed to be there. Checking with Geet Kosh, the number seems to tally. Our Yippeee films lists also shows this film as being one song short. So how come I have an extra song.

My first reaction of course was that another song has been inserted in this folder by mistake. I took a chance and called up my collector friend to check. He said that the song (the extra song I was enquiring about) belongs to this film. In confusion, I completed the call, without asking him another important question – who says it is?

In confusion, I resorted back to the Geet Kosh. And it just struck me to check the corrigenda of volume IV. And as I did, I find that this ‘supposed’ extra song does exist for this film. The corrigenda entry lists this song, as one more song for this film, which is missing from the main Geet Kosh listings.

So the silver lining to this confusion cloud is that this film has seven and not six songs – one more unheard song to enjoy. Ah yes, but there is also a cloud to this silver lining – that this film cannot be yippeee’d today. So, there. 🙂

Today’s song is written by Jaan Nisar Akhtar, and the music is by C Arjun. The singing voices are of Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar accompanied by chorus. I haven’t had the opportunity to see this film. The manner in which the song is presented, it appears that a teacher is singing this song, accompanied by a group of school students. The teacher is telling about the glory and the history of India, and then she poses a query to the students, to tell briefly about some of the great people of our country. Apparently, the students take turns to sing out a brief introduction to certain great leaders of our country, past and present.

At the end of the song, the teacher takes over once again, and tells the students about the continuing problems and social ills, and then exhorts them to become the great leaders of the future, and help to address these problems.

The issues mentioned, were valid for the 1960s, and sadly, they continue more aggravated-ly, even fifty years later. It seems as if the human progress continues, in many aspects and many spheres of life. But apparently, these social evils are a given constant in the society. Nothing seems to have the power to effect any change in status quo. These issues have been discussed in ancient texts, in the teachings of great men over the ages, and continue to seize the time and attention of the leaders today. And that is all I have to say about this situation.

Enjoy this rare song from the mid 1960s, that apparently went out of circulation for quite some time in the interim.

Once again, greetings for a Happy Republic Day.

इस देश को ऊंचा मान दिया
सत्यमेव जयते सत्यमेव जयते
सत्यमेव जयते सत्यमेव जयते

गूंजी है आवाज़ समय की
वक़्त के हैं पैगाम बहुत
आगे आगे करना होंगे
हमको तुमको काम बहुत
कब तक आखिर और सहें
इस गुरबत और बेकारी को
खत्म अभी करना हाई हमको
इस दौलत की ज़ारादारी को
ज़ात के बंधन चीज़ हैं क्या
क्यों दूरी अपने बीच रहे
देश में कोई दुख क्यों झेले
क्यों ये ऊंच और नीच रहे
तुमको भी कर बढ़ के
अपने बाग की खुशबू बनना है
बच्चो इक दिन तुमको गांधी
तुमको नेहरू बनना है

गांधी बनना है
नेहरू बनना है

गांधी बनना है
नेहरू बनना है

गांधी बनना है
नेहरू बनना है

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 58 # Remembering Singer-Poet – Kavi Pradeep #
———————————————–—————————————————-

Today (11th December, 2017 is the nineteenth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.02.1915 – 11.12.1998) of Ramchandra Narayanji Dwivedi whom we fondly remember and whose name has been engraved in the history of Indian Cinema and Poetry as Kavi Pradeep.

On this occasion here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa-1975” which is penned by Kavi Pradeep (he has written all the six songs for this movie) and also lent his voice to the background version of this (today’s) song in the movie.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma.
It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’.

Bharat Bhushan makes an ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The seventies was a very special decade for Hindi movies. It saw the emergence of the first superstar of the industry and later on the rise of an angry young man on screen. Action films, formula films, multi starrer movies came to the fore in this decade. Story presentation and action underwent changes from the earlier decades. Towards the end of the decade, we found disco music entering in Hindi film music in a big way.

This decade also saw one of the greatest mythological hit of all times viz. ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ in 1975.

Released in the same year as Sholay, this was a low budget movie but later on created records for collection. I have blurred memories about tales that many women started ‘santoshi maata vrat’ after watching this movie.

All the songs of this movie were very popular. Today’s song in particular holds a special nostalgic value for me.

I was just above 7 years old at that time. I remember that we watched both Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa on the same day at Akola. I remember the name of the theatres. ‘Shalini’ talkies, which had that typical theatre like built inside and ‘Manek’ talkies – one of the old in the city and still maintained well and spacious.

Today when I checked the release dates of both these movies, I find that “Jai Santoshi Maa” was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and “Sholay” was passed by Censor Board on 12.08.1975).

The song being presented today has two versions. One version is sung by Kavi Pradeep and the other by Mahendra Kapoor with chorus in both of them. music is given by C. Arjun and lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep ji.

This song, oozing with devotion and spirituality has a calming effect on me and it puts me at peace. No wonder that this is a song that I like to listen to again and again.

(Note: – In HFGK Vol-V this song is mentioned as appearing at number two and six, which normally should be in the order of appearing of the songs in the movie. However, I would like to mention here that this needs to be corrected in HFGK as in the movie this song appears at number one and two respectively in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Kavi Pradeep.

HFGK mentions the song ‘main to aarti utaaroon re’ at number one while in the movie it comes at number number five. And, at number six is the last song of the movie ‘madad karo he… madad karo santoshi maata’).

Let us now listen to this wonderful song …

hum kahin bhi hon
chale aayenge

What an extraordinary promise this is.

We had a small get together of music lovers, earlier in the day today. And for the day it is, part of our conversation revolved around Rafi Sb, and his persona, and his legacy. ‘God’s Own Man’ is the phrase expressed by one of the gathering. Certainly, all people are God’s people. But then some are special. They are ‘God’s Own People’. Humble and giving – the two traits that stand out as shining beacons in this industry that is famous for cutthroat competition, and the rule of money power. So much corruption and cruelty bleeds into it, and in turn, generates more cruelty and heartlessness.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 55 # Qawwalis – 7#
———————————————–—————-

Under this series today we have this beautiful ‘Sufi Qawwali’ composed by C.Arjun and which is written by none other than Sahir Ludhianvi for the movie ‘Nawaab Sahib-1978’. I have vague memories of watching this movie in late seventies or early eighties, but I do not remember much about this movie or its story line. The only memory of this movie that I had carried over in my growing years and thereafter was this song ‘Hum Mein Hai Kya Ke Hamen Koi Haseena Chaahe’ sung by Mohd Rafi.

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.

तुम ना जाने किस जहां में खो गए॰॰॰

एक शायर का नज़रिया है॰ यूं तो हमें मालूम है के ज़िंदगी का दिया एक दिन बुझ जाना है॰ मगर फिर भी, जब किसी चहेते का साथ छूटता है, तो दिल का ग़म इन्हीं लफ्जों में ढलता है॰॰॰  तुम ना जाने किस जहां में खो गए॰॰॰

[A poet’s perspective it is. We are all aware that the life breath will cease one day. But still, when a dear one departs, the sadness in the heart expresses itself in these very words. . . “Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahaan Mein Kho Gaye”].

The words are from the pen of Sahir – the poet extraordinaire, whose poetry has touched every strand in the fabric of life, every passion, every sentiment of the human psyche. A poet who has given us near about seven hundred film songs, that express a multitude of emotions coloring the canvas of life.

Remembering Sahir Sb, on the anniversary of his passing away today (25th Oct, 1980).

Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.
