Blog Day :

5126 Post No. : 17075

Today 31st July we remember the ‘divine voice’ of Hindi Film Music Late Shri Mohd Rafi Sahab on his Remembrance Day and pay our tributes to him on this blog.

Mohd Rafi left this world on 31st July 1980. Forty-two years have passed since he left this world. But, for the music lovers, not a single day passes without his voice ‘singing’ around us …

On this blog there have been many passionate, heartfelt, lovable posts on Rafi Saab in the past and they will continue in the future too.

I am not going to write about Rafi Saab’s voice, his songs or his personality and the many incidences which have been known to us about his generosity and all.

I would like to pay my tributes today to Rafi Saab by presenting one of his songs which touched me very much. I had come across this song during the month of January this year when it was being played on ‘Vividh Bharati’. I can now guess that it must be around 14th January the ‘Remembrance Day’ of music director Chitragupt ji. This programme was dedicated to him. Since then, I had listened to this song many times. Not only the singing of this song, but the whole composition is ‘simply great’ in terms of its lyrics and music. Lyrics for this song are by Shailendra ji.

This song is from the Bhojpuri movie or rather the ‘first Bhojpuri movie’ ‘Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo-1962’.
So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

This movie made its’ debut on the blog on 23.04.2015 with its song ‘kaahe bansuriya bajaule re sudh bisraule’.
This post was presented by Shri. Sudhir jee and I would like to reproduce here what he has mentioned about this movie in his post.

This is the first Bhojpuri film that was made in India. An interesting anecdote behind its creation. At an film awards ceremony in late 1950s, the then President of India, Babu Rajendra Prasad, who hails from Bihar, spoke with Nazir Hussain, the renowned character actor, also from Bihar. The president queries why not make films in Bhojpuri language. In fact, Nazir Sb was already preparing a script for a Bhojpuri film, with this title. He promised the president that it will happen soon.
Nazir Husain discussed the script with Bimal Roy, but he did not express any great amount of interest in the project. A later chance meeting with Bishwanath Prasad, a businessman and a film distributor and exhibitor in Bihar, led to a more interested commitment, and the film was launched with financing from the businessman. The film was completed in 1962. A special screening was arranged for the President, before the public release. The film was released to public in 1963.

The title of the film refers to a tradition in Bihar that says, ‘Mother Ganga, I will offer you the auspicious yellow sari’. The word ‘piyari’ represent the yellow sari. The tradition is that people will pray to Mother Ganges, and place their wish to her, in their prayers. On the fulfilment of their wishes, they will make an offering the auspicious yellow sari, to Mother Ganges.

“Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo-1962” was directed by Kundan Kumar for ‘Nirmal Pictures’.
It had Kumkum, Aseem Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tiwari, Mishra, Helen, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan Sinha, Tun Tun, Mangala Prasad, T.N. Sinha, Keshav Rana, Amal Sen, Kesarbai, Mastram, Bhushan Tiwari, Daya Devi, Dubey, Kumari Padma and others.

This movie had six songs (including one multiple version song) written by Shailendra and composed to music by Chitragupt.

Lata Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and on screen it is played in the background when the heroine of the movie Kumkum is getting married. Also seen the picturisation of this song is Leela Mishra, Nazir Hussain, Aseem Kumar, and many other artistes.

This song sung by Rafi Sahab is the only song sung by him in this movie (as per the list of songs and singers mentioned for them in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Let us now listen to this heart wrenching song sung by none other than Rafi Sahab.

(I would also like to given here a brief translation of this song mentioned on a You Tube link by a enthusiastic reader

Shut in a cage of gold, the bird’s heart is sad, the branch of the tree is broken, the nest is scattered, and the blue sky is lost forever. With tear filled eyes the mute bird, the beloved daughter of her mother, is going away to an unknown place. O my father these pearls of my tears I leave behind with you. Her friends kept shedding tears as the hunter took the bird away. My dear forget about me and let go off all the hopes of our meting again.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film ‘Sindbad the Sailor’ (1952).

During our childhood, when we were in school, we were fond of different stories. Our school books contained interesting stories of kings, explorers and great souls. In those days most children used to read outside school books. Some kids were lucky whose grandparents told them stories from mythology and history. This not only gave entertainment but also helped build up good values of life. Some children liked mythology stories, some liked historical and yet some others liked adventure stories. The joint family culture helped develop the right kind of mindset and value addition.

I was a keen reader and I used to read whatever came to my hands – be it a book, magazine or even a newspaper. However, my choice was stories of adventure. Up to 10-15 years of age I read stories of Aladdin, Alibaba, Sindbad, Hatimtai, Navnath stories, Vedic stories, Ramayan-Mahabharat stories, historical stories and such stuff. After that age, I switched over to reading detective and mystery stories by Edgar Wallace, Earl Stanley Gardner, Agatha Christie, Arthur Connan Doyle, Berkeley Grey, Rodrik Graham, Ellery Queen, Brett Haliday, Peter Cheney, Sax Rhomer etc. I know all these names will be Greek and Latin to today’s generation. Those days were different. Today’s scenario is different. there is neither comparison nor criticism. Times change, the world changes. That was good for us, today’s generation likes something else. It is OK.

My point is some stories in this world are evergreen. For them there is no generation barrier, no age difference, no time change. They are immortal, in a sense. Stories from Arabian Nights, Sherlock Holmes, Ramayan – Mahabharat, Greek stories like Helen of Troy etc are ‘all time favorites’. These stories have provided entertainment to several generations. Over the long years, maybe the stories have changed to some extent too. Nevertheless, their entertainment value has remained constant.

Aladdin, Sindbad, Alibaba etc. are stories from The Arabian Nights. The history and story of Arabian Nights is interesting. Stories of Arabian Nights or 1001 Nights are so interesting that for many generations they have been a source of entertainment. Alibaba, Aladdin and Sindbad are the evergreen stories. Arabian Night stories evolved through a story which took place in Persia. King Shahriyar became a woman hater after he found that his wife was unfaithful to him. He not only killed her, but he started marrying a new girl every day, and on the second day of marriage the wife would be killed to avoid unfaithfulness.

The legend says that Scheherazade, the beautiful young daughter of the Vizier, decided to marry the king Shahriyar, against wishes of her family. On the first night of marriage, she started telling him a story which she left unfinished. Curious to know the story’s end, the king postponed her killing. On every night Scheherazade employed the same technique – finish the story from the previous day, from within that story, start a new story, and then keep that one unfinished that night. Thus she continued 1001 stories on 1001 nights. Finally the king changed his opinion and pardoned his wife.

These stories included historical stories, love tales, tragedies, comedies, poems, eroticas, stories of jinn, ghosts and apes, sorcerers, magicians etc. Places like Basra, Istanbul, Baghdad etc. were frequently mentioned in these stories. A lot of films have been made on different popular characters of Arabian Nights. Here is a short history of films made, it may not be complete but surely is an indicator of how the Indian film industry took advantage of the ready made interesting stories. These stories were liked by not only children, but also millions of adults – like me, for example.

A cursory look at the Film Title Index-1913 to 2012 by Hamraz ji tells us that the most popular stories are on Aladdin, Alibaba and Sinbad as well as Gul E Bakavli, besides films on other not so well known characters. In the Silent film era, films on Alibaba were made in 1927 (2 films); Aladdin in 1927 (2), 1928, 1931; Sindbad in 1930(2) and Arabian Nights – 1930. During the Talkie films, the first film on Alibaba was in 1932, then in 40, 46, 54(2), 66, 76, 77, 80 and 2004. On Aladdin in 35, 36, 39, 41, 49, 52 (2), 55, 57, 58, 66, 78, 82(2). On Sindbad in 46(2), 52(2), 58, 65 and 2000.

As always, the creative heads in the story departments of filmmakers invented titles like Alladin Ka Beta, Alladin Ki Beti, Aladdin and Laila. Similarly son and daughter were gifted to Alibaba and Sinbad and films made on them. The funniest title was ‘Sindbad, Alibaba and Aladdin’ (1965) ! On a quick check of HFGK entries for the 1940s decade we find that as many as 9 films were made in 1946 alone on these characters. Added were Baghdad Ka Chor, Hoor e Baghdad, Sher e Baghdad, Arab Ka Chand and Shah e Misr – in which actor Ajit debuted with his real name Hamid.

The frame story of Sindbad is – In the reign of Haroon Al Rasheed, a poor porter (coolie) feels tired and sits on a bench in the garden of a rich person. There he complains to God why there are rich persons who do nothing and poor persons who toil all day. The rich person hears this and calls the porter inside his house. After providing him food etc. they start conversation and learn that names of both are same – SINDBAD. The rich Sindbad tells him how he became so rich and describes his 7 sea voyages one by one. Thus starts each voyage story in detail and in first person. Surprisingly, Sindbad’s is the only story about a sailor’s voyages in the entire 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights !

Today’s song is from one of my favorite films – ‘Sindbad the Sailor’ aka ‘Sindbad Jahaazi’ (1952). The English people always called him SINBAD, but in India he is the popular SINDBAD. The film was produced by Balwant Bhatt and directed by his younger brother Nanabhai Bhatt – an action film veteran. The cast included Naseem – who entered the films in the 1930s with a bang and titled as having a ”pari chehra” due to her beauty. She was on the last part of her career. (After the entry of Madhubala, the crown of Beauty went to her and she was called “The Venus”). Ranjan was the hero. There was Pran and Nirupa Roy – who along with Pran played the role of a Villain in this film. And to imagine that she was already famous for her roles in mythological and religious films ! But then Nirupa Roy had done some action and stunt films too, fighting and winning over big goons ! The rest of the cast consisted of regulars for such types of films.

The Music Director was again my favorite – Chitragupt, the genuine melody maker of Hindi films. This wonderful duet is sung by Rafi and Shamshad, as only they could sing such lovely song. Enjoy this melodious duet. . .

Lyrics

zindagi sanwar gayi mastiyon se bhar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi
zindagi sanwar gayi mastiyon se bhar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

baat nayi aa gayi
ho o o o o o
baat nayi aa gayi husn ke guroor mein
sar jhuka diya hai jo ishq ke huzoor mein
baat nayi aa gayi husn ke guroor mein
sar jhuka diya hai jo ishq ke huzoor mein
jaaneman wo aapki berukhi kidhar gayi

jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

kaun hoon khabar nahin
ho o o o o o
kaun hoon khabar nahin
hosh kho chuki hoon main
bhool kar jahaan ko
teri ho chuki hoon main
kaun hoon khabar nahin
hosh kho chuki hoon main
bhool kar jahaan ko
teri ho chuki hoon main
ek din ki dillagi
kya se kya hai kar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

dil ko aaj kya hua
ho o o o o o
dil ko aaj kya hua
haath mein na aaye hain

dhadkanon ki taar par saaz saaz gaaye hai
dil ko aaj kya hua
haath mein na aaye hain

dhadkanon ki taar par saaz saaz gaye hai
kya kahu tumhe sanam dil pe kya gujar gayi
jab se pyar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi
zindagi sanvar gayi mastiyo se bhar gayi
jab se pyar ki nazar dil me hai utar gayi

ज़िंदगी संवर गई
मस्तियों से भर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई
ज़िंदगी संवर गई
मस्तियों से भर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई

बात नई आ गई
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
बात नई आ गई
हुस्न के गुरूर में
सर झुका दिया है जो
इश्क़ के हुज़ूर में
बात नई आ गई
हुस्न के गुरूर में
सर झुका दिया है जो
इश्क़ के हुज़ूर में
जानेमन वो आपकी
बेरुखी किधर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई

कौन हूँ खबर नहीं
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
कौन हूँ खबर नहीं
होश खो चुकी हूँ मैं
भूल कर जहान् को
तेरी हो चुकी हूँ मैं
कौन हूँ खबर नहीं
होश खो चुकी हूँ मैं
भूल कर जहान् को
तेरी हो चुकी हूँ मैं
एक दिन की दिल्लगी
क्या से क्या है कर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर ग

दिल को आज क्या हुआ
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
दिल को आज क्या हुआ
हाथ में ना आए है
धड़कनों के तार पर
साज़ साज़ गाये है
दिल को आज क्या हुआ
हाथ में ना आए है
धड़कनों के तार पर
साज़ साज़ गाये है
क्या कहूँ तुम्हें सनम
दिल पे क्या गुज़र गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई
ज़िंदगी संवर गई
मस्तियों से भर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई

Today’s song is from the film Naya Raasta-1953.

Human nature is basically the same all over the world. There are some emotions and likes, common to all people everywhere in the world. Irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion or Language, certain wishes are common all over the world. One of these likes, emotions or wishes is the Human Curiosity, anxiety and craze for things which are NEW. Be it Fashion, Books, Films, Food or a Gift, the very word NEW evokes common emotions all over the Human race !

Clever filmmakers understood this Human weakness for NEW or NAYA quickly and film titles featuring this word were used in an attempt to draw audience attention and a bee-line to the ticket window. Right from the early Talkie days i.e. the 1930’s films with Naya/Nayi were showcased. Nayi Duniya, Nayi Roshni and Naya Zamana were brought in the 30’s. The trend slowly caught up and in the 40’s, there were 12 films with Nayi or Naya in their titles. These were, Nai Baat, Nayi Bhabhi, Nai Duniya, Nayi kahani, Nayi Maa, Nayi Reet, Nayi Roshni, Nai Taleem, Naya Sansar, Naya Tarana and Naya Zamana. Not to be outdone, the 50’s came up with 14 film titles with nayi or naya. Some of them were well known films like Naya Daur, Nai Delhi, Naya Andaz (remake of famous musical film Bazaar-1949) and Naya Paisa.

However, it was a moot question as to how many films with Naya and Nayi in their titles stood up to quench the curiosity of their audience !

Today’s film Naya Raasta was based on a Gujarati drama “Sarvodaya”, staged by Shri Deshi Natak Samaj, which played in Bhangwadi theatre, Bombay for a record period. It became a superhit drama. The owner of Jayant Desai Productions, chose this drama to make a film. It was directed by its owner Jayant Desai himself. Unlike the hit Gujarati drama, the film could not run for a long period and was drubbed at the Box Office.

My observation about the films made on popular or famous books, novels or dramas is that it was only the Bangla film industry which had succeeded in making films on famous works of well known authors. Films remade in Hindi from these Bangla films were always successful all over India. In the 1930s and the 1940s, most films made by Bangla filmmakers, especially New Theatres, were equally popular even in their Hindi editions.

Such success was never seen in Hindi films. In the first place not many films were made on popular works of well known authors of Hindi, unlike Bangla films, on a large scale or even Marathi films on a smaller scale. It seems Hindi audiences liked to enjoy imaginary and sheerly entertaining films churned out by the various ” Story departments” of our filmmakers.

Film Naya Raasta-53 had music by Chitragupta-the melody maker, ably assisted by Dilip Dholakiya. There were 8 songs in the film. Today’s song is the 4th song to be discussed here. It is sung by Chitragupta, Dilip Dholakiya and Laxmi Roy. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Agha, Manhar Desai, Bipin Gupta, Satyanarayana, Krishnakumari, Suryakumar, Umakant and many others.

Today’s song starts with English words Good Bye and Tata. Use of English words in the Mukhda of Hindi film songs is nothing new. Even in the 1933 film ” Karma”, there was a complete English song-“Now the Moon”. Again in the 1937 film ” Duniya na Maane” there was an English Poem recited by Shanta Apte with flawless pronunciation. In the 40’s, 50’s and then onwards in every decade English words in the Mukhada were found.

In the cast we find 2 interesting names-Satyanarayana and Surya kumar. Both were Dance Directors in Hindi films and both had a penchant for acting in the films. This habit is found in many directors too. The famous Alfred Hitchcock had a habit of making a cameo appearance in every of his films and it provided an interesting pastime game to his fans to locate him in the film. I too was one of the fans doing this religiously.

Robert aka Suryakumar (brother of Dancer/Choreographer Krishna Kumar) was born on 14-12-1924. He started his film career as assistant in the sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period, yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer’ was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films, that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded.

Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted Madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in the film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, when she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravan Kumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too, before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

The female singer in today’s song is Laxmi Roy. Laxmi Roy was the younger sister of Geeta Dutt. When Mukul Roy became a composer with his first film Bhed-50, he gave Laxmi Roy her first film song to sing. She was not a very good singer or her voice was not an extraordinary one. So no major composers noticed her. Chitragupta gave her one song in Bhakta Puran-52 and 2 songs in Nayaa Rasta-53. Composer Vinod tried her with one song in Aag ka Dariya-53. S. N. Tripathi gave her two songs in Nav Durga-53 and lastly she sang one song for Mukul Roy in Sailaab-56.

Pramod Chakravarty, who became a well known Director and producer later on, was working as assistant to Guru Dutt in Sailaab. During its making Laxmi and Pramod got married and Laxmi’s singing career came to a close ! In all she sang just 8 songs in 6 films.

Let us enjoy this interesting song….


Song- Good Bye Good Bye Tata Tata (Naya Raasta)(1953) Singers- Laxmi Roy, Chitragupta, Dilip Dholakiya, Lyricist- Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD- Chitragupta (Asstt. Dilip Dholakiya)

Good bye good bye Tata Tata

jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
malmal raaste hain sabke waaste
sukh dukh ko ghar ghar baantaa baantaa
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

From the above table we can see that a total forty-six movies were released during this period of – September’1971 to December’1971.
Out of these forty-six movies mentioned above, two movies were songless movies. And on the blog, we have launched forty-one movies.
Out of these forty-one movies seventeen movies have already been covered for all songs from them and they have been Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

Three movies viz.’ Agent 999* (C.I.D. Agent 999*, Operation Jackpot)’, ‘Nanheen Kaliyaan’ and ‘Revolver Raani’ have yet to make a debut on the blog. As of now, the song from these movies seems to be not available.

(we will be taking a final view on the year ‘1971’ in another post to be presented soon on the blog 😊 That also gives an opportunity for one more song from ‘1971’ too 😊

For today’s post I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Saaz Aur Sanam-1971’. As we can see from above list there are as many as ‘twenty-four’ movies available where we can select a song from. However, I was looking for a ‘different’ song and one that is a lesser known. I think the song I have selected fulfils the condition 😊

‘Saaz Aur Sanam-1971’ was directed by J.B.H. Wadia for ‘Wadia Movieton, Bombay’.

It had Rekha, Premendra, Suresh Chatwal, Renu, Sapru, Poornima, Brahmachari, Bhagwan, Asit Sen, Ratan Kumar, Kirti Kumar, Hercules, Padma Kapoor, Bismillah, Dayanand, Dalda and others.

The movie introduced Rajanibala and Arvind.

This movie had five songs written by Kaifi Azmi and composed to music by Chitragupt.

Following is the detail of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Meri balaa jaane hain kitne yahaan gham Kishore Kumar Being discussed today
02 Dil se nazar tak tere ujaale Kishore Kumar 13.10.2015
03 Na roothho hamen paas aane bhi do Lata Mangeshkar 14.01.2018
04 Pal pal botal chhalke Asha Bhonsle
05 Ye dil jigar jafaa wafaa hai sab kuchh fasaana Lata Mangeshkar

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.12.1971.(so this is the same month it was passed by Censor Board, fifty years back) 😊

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip synced by Premendra who is seen singing and teasing actress Rekha. There are many other artists (I could not identify the other prominent actor in the song) also seen in the picturization of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us enjoy today’s song now …

# A tribute to Kavi Pradeep 11.12.2021#
————————————————

Today we remember Ramchandra Narayandut Dwivedi who is fondly known to us as ‘Kavi Pradeep’ or ‘Rashtra Kavi Pradeep’. Today is his 23rd ‘Remembrance Day’.

He was born on 6th February,1915 and passed away on 11th December,1998 leaving treasure of his poems and songs sung by him in his immortal voice.

As I had mentioned in one of my posts on him here “I am short of words to describe his special ‘voice’ in words. As it is an altogether a very different experience or rather divine experience to listen the songs sung by him.”

I will not repeat the same again here. But I would again like to mention here that Kavi Pradeep is admired and loved by all. He has written over five hundred songs for movies and sung many songs (which could be less than fifty I think) for HFM.

He has immortalized himself in his creations and they will be cherished and discussed as long HFM is listened and discussed on this planet.

I would like to repeat that I always feel very happy to share his songs here on the blog. So, as a tribute to him, here is a song from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Kabhi Dhoop Kabhi Chhaaon’ on this occasion of today.

‘Kabhi Dhoop Kabhi Chhaaon-1971’ was directed by Chandrakant for ‘Joy Films, Bombay’.

Chandrakant was also the producer of this movie.

It had Dara Singh, Ameeta, Gutanjali, Jagdeep, Randhawa, Sapru, Tiwari, Ram Mohan, Renu, Mridula, B.M. Vyas, Shree Bhagwan, Bhagwan Sinha, Radheshyam, Moppet Raja, Tiger, Jogendra Singh, Mustafa Nasar, Dhirendra, Paul Kamidan, Kashmira, Anand Joshi, R.C. Pande, Datta Shahpur, Babu, Sandow, Hindustani, Suresh Gor, Gulab, Pehelwan, Jooly, Deepak Trivedi, Mansoor, Mona and Sulochana.

Story and dialogues of this movie were written by Qabil Amritsari. Dialogue Direction was done by Ramesh Pande.

Editing of this movie was done by Ram Khade and Vithoba Surve.

This movie had eight songs (as per HFGK Vol-V, 1971-1980) penned by Kavi Pradeep (three songs) and Prem Dhawan (five songs).

Music for this film was composed by Chitragupta.

The eight songs from this movie were as listed below.

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.

Blog Day :

4836 Post No. : 16620

When I saw this song on You Tube, a few days ago, I was very happy. This was one of the most popular Lories in those days – and naturally so, because it was composed by the melody King Chitragupt and was sung by the melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar. In one of her interviews to Film fare, she had said ” I like to sing songs of Chitragupt ji and I particularly liked the lori ‘ Chanda loriyan sunaaye’ from film Naya Sansar-1959.”

I was pleasantly surprised to know that this famous Lori was yet to be posted on our Blog. Surely, it fits into the song category of “How I forgot to post this song earlier”. I believe, this song was waiting for me only !

Lories have been a part of many films, where a family life is the main plank of the film story. The earliest famous Lori was the one sung by K L Saigal – “So ja Raajkumari so jaa”, from film Zindagi-1940. Earlier to that also there were many- as many as 15- Lories in the films right from film Radhe Shyam aka Zulm E Kans-1932, in which Devki (Phool kumari) sings a Lori for her child (Shri krishna), asking him not to cry loudly, lest Kans will come and kill him. -” so ja tu mere lal chu ke se, voh Paapi aa jaye”. Then there was ” Dheere dheere aa re Badal” sung by Amirbai and Arunkumar in film Kismet-1943. Many more Lories subsequently became popular, but today’s Lori was more popular and famous.

Film Naya Sansar was produced by Darshan Malhotra for his own banner Shri krishna Films. It was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. This was a rare occasion when Nanabhai Bhatt directed a Social film. Normally he was equated with B and C grade action and Mythological films only.

Director Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-6-1915 to 24-4-1999). He was a director in many films.He directed mostly Mythological and stunt films only. Nanabhai was born as Yashwant ( pet name – Batuk) at Porbandar. Since he was the younger one he was called Nanabhai ( opposite to Motabhai-elder brother). This name continued till the end. His father was a doctor. After matriculation, he went to Mumbai in 1934, where his elder brother Balwant Bhatt was working. Balwant started with Imperial,shifted to Sagar and now was with Prakash pictures of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. He got Nanabhai a job as Sound Recordist.Soon he graduated as Production Executive.He also wrote several screenplays.

In 1942 he directed “Muqabala”, for Homi Wadia, as Batuk Bhatt. Homi Wadia became his good friend. When Homi established his own Basant Pictures, Nanabhai joined him and directed his “Hunterwali ki Beti”-43, with Nadia again. He also did mauj, Jee Haan, Chaalis Karod etc. He directed about 50 films of various genres like Stunts, Mythologicals,crime, social, costume etc.

Nanabhai’s first wife was Hemlata. He also married Shirin banu, his Heroine of few films. To circumvent the Bigamy law, he married her in a Temple and that too in the presence of Hemlata ! He had 3 children from Hemlata and 6 from Shirin. Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt are from Shirin. His children and grandchildren married in different religions.Thus his big family was an example of Secularism ! In addition to 9 children Nanabhai also produced 20 films under his own Deepak Pics and Gautam Chitra !

The music was by Chitragupt and the film cast was Jayashree Gadkar, pradeep kumar, nanda dhumal, Tuntun, Sundar, Shammi, majnu and dancers Sheila Vaz, Sai Subbulakshmi and Kamla Laxman. The heroine Jayashree Gadkar was a very popular and busy actress in marathi cinema. I was surprised to learn that she had acted in 73 hindi films. Despite this number, she was not famous in Hindi films because she got only B and C grade action and Mythological films in Hindi.

Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s.

Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heriones in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema.

Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan).

Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

Let us now enjoy the sweet lori from this film.


Song- Chanda Loriyan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye(Naya Sansaar)(1959) Singer- Lata Mangeshkar, Lyricist- Rajindra Krishan, MD- Chitragupta

Lyrics

chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaye mere laal ko

barson shaam savere maa ne roya dil ka dukhda
barson shaam savere maa ne roya dil ka dukhda
tab ja ke bhagwaan ne baksha ik chaand ka tukda
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko

khelega jab mere angna khel ye pyaare pyaare
khelega jab mere angna khel ye pyaare pyaare
khelan ko tab laayegi maa neel gagan ke taare
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko

baandh ka sehra banega jis din dulha mera raaja
baandh ka sehra banega jis din dulha mera raaja
khushiyon ki baaraat sajegi armaanon ka baaja
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
