Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 9
————————————————————————————–

Today (18 January 2022) is a foggy wintery shivery morning in North India. To add to this woe, the nation is also into the grips of the third wave of Covid-19 virus.

This day ten years ago, viz 18 january 2012 was almost world apart. Those days I was in a stage of transition, viz I had been transferred to Bilaspur, but my attachmnent from Nagpur was still there, where I still had my accomodation. Since I had not got my accomodation at Bilaspur where I had been transferred, I would go back to Nagpur during weekends and holidaysat the first available opportunity.

Even without any proper accomodation, I had settled down well into my blogging, even if the rate of daily posts had gone down a bit.

It is clear that 18 January 2012 was no where near as difficult a day as 18 january 2022. Unlike today, when I woke up late and that too reluctantly, I has woken up early ten years ago as was my wont. Six songs were covered on that day. All these songs got covered before noon.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5313 Bichhde huye pardesi Barsaat(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5314 Apni nazar se unki nazar tak Ham Log (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
5315 Muhabbat karne waale kis qadar majboor hote hain Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs covered out of 12 by now
5316 Boley ye dil ka ishaara Santaan (1959) 3 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5317 Jaan chali jaaye jiyaa nahin jaaye Anjaana (1969) Movie YIPPEED by now
5318 Tere sang pyaar main nahin todna Naagin (1976) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that “Santaan”(1959) is one of the movies that is not yet YIPPEED. So this movie is still eligible for Blog ten year challenge today.

So, as blog ten year challenge, here is a song from “Santaan”(1959). The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kadam as a “aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4912 Post No. : 16730

Today, December 29, 2021 is the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, singer, actor and the music director in Hindi and Bangla films. The resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar seems to have influenced the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan to try him as a playback singer in Hindi films. Subir Sen sang just 28 songs in Hindi films in the span of around 12 years. Most of the songs he rendered became popular.

Subir Sen (24/07/1934 – 29/12/2015) was born in Assam and grew up in Guwahati where his father had a pharmacy business. He completed his matriculation from Guwahati. From the childhood, he was drawn towards music and this was the reason that made his father to shift to Kolkata after selling his pharmacy business. During his growing up days, he was highly influenced by the singing of Dhananjay Bhattacharya, Hemant Kumar and Talat Mehmood. When he started singing their songs in some programmes, the audience started appreciating his renditions. He felt that he can also sing like his favourite singers which made him to pursue the singing as a career.

Subir Sen enrolled himself in Marris College of Music (later renamed as Bhatkhande Music Institute), Lucknow. During the third year of his college, he received the first prize for singing a vilambit Khayal in raag Purvi. Later, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri, a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. On the advice of Acharya Chinmoy, Subir Sen learnt the Thumri singing from Usha Ranjan Mukherjee for over 2 years.

On an invitation from Guru Dutt, Subir Sen along with the music director, Sudhin Dasgupta shifted to Mumbai and became the part of the Guru Dutt’s Films for his film under production (probably for ‘Pyaasa’1957). However, though they were on the payroll of Guru Dutt Films, they never got opportunity to sing in his film. It is said that Guru Dutt sent Subir Sen to S D Burman for audition. He introduced himself as a singer who sang in the style of Hemant Kumar. S D Burman rejected him without taking his audition by asking him as to why he should use him when he can have the original voice of Hemant Kumar. (Source: Interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma on S D Burman).

While Sudhin Dasgupta returned to Kolkata, Subir Sen got an opportunity to sing for the first time in Hindi films under the baton of Shankar-Jaikishan who were impressed with the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar. The first song he sang in Hindi film was manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye in ‘Kathputli’ (1957) picturised on Balraj Sahni. The song became very popular and was one of the three songs from ‘Kathputli’ (1957) to figure in the top 32 songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1958. In 1959-60, Subir Sen sang six songs in six films with six music directors (including one under the baton of Hemant Kumar), all of which became popular.

Subir Sen again came into the attention when his song, dil mera ek aas ka panchhi picturised on Rajendra Kumar (who was nick named as ‘Jubilee Kumar’), became even more popular than his first song, ranking 5th among the top 32 Hindi film songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1961.

With the kind of the early successes, Subir Sen must have dreamt of a bright future for him as a playback singer in Hindi films. But his discography in the table given below reveals that his playback singing career in Hindi films did not reach to a level to make a living out of it. In most of the films, he got the opportunity to sing only one song.

25 aah dil mein hai Rani Chandravati (1968, UR) Solo S N Tripathi

27 sedin dujone dulechhinu bone (Bangla) Anubhav (1971) Solo Rabindranath Tagore
28 koi mera ho gaya Midnight (1972) Solo Subir Sen

The initial euphoria Subir Sen created in Hindi film music due to the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar may have becoming a stumbling block in his playback singing career. It would be a natural response from the music directors that they would rather work with Hemant Kumar who had already established himself as a playback singer than Subir Sen. Also, producers, directors, actors and the film financiers/distributors have their own preferences for playback singers among the established ones.

Ashutosh Banerjee, music director who had composed many Bangla films and non-film songs for Subir Sen was of the view that while in Mumbai, Subir Sen started listening to a lot of western music during which Jim Reeves and Nat King Cole became his favourite singers. From Jim Reeves, he picked up the tonal quality and from Nat King Cole the drama in singing. In his subsequent renditions, Subir Sen was influenced by the styles of these two American singers.

Some changes in Subir Sen’s rendition style are evident in his later songs. For instance, in ‘dheere chalo zara’ from ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’ (1961), one can feel some shades of Mukesh in the song. In ‘dekho na jaaneman’ which he sang for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Boy Friend’ (1961), his voice sounds somewhat different giving a feel of Manna Dey. I have listened to some of his Bangla non-film songs and I feel that he had adapted to a style of rendition to sound somewhat different from Hemant Kumar’s voice. For examples, ‘oy ujjwal din’ and ‘pagol hawa’ (a rehash of non-film Bangla song originally sung by Jatileshwar Mukherjee and ‘na jaane tum’ from ‘Chhoti Si Baat’, 1976).

With his playback singing career in Hindi films getting stangnated, Subir Sen returned to Kolkata sometime in early 1970s. He recorded hundreds of Bengali modern and Rabindra Sangeet numbers over three decades. He also acted along with Uttam Kumar in Bangla film, ‘Momer Alo’ (1964) and in Hindi film “Anubhav’ (1971).

Subir Sen and also Dwijen Mukherjee could not create a place for themselves in Hindi films mainly because they were born with their voice boxes almost similar to Hemant Kumar. And both of them were the contemporary of Hemant Kumar and in competition with him. Also, they came at a time when the troika of the main male playback singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had already well-established in Hindi film industry.

On the occasion of the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, I am presenting ‘chaand tale jhoom jhoom tirak rahi hai’ rendered by him with Suman Kalyanpur for the film ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963). The song is written by Shailendra which is set to music by Dattaram.

With this song, all the six songs of ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ have been covered in the Blog.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) was produced by Surinder Kapoor under the banner of Amar Chhaaya Films and was directed by Kedar Kapoor. The star cast included Geeta Bali and Pradeep Kumar in the lead role with the supporting cast of Agha, Vijaylaxmi, Siddhu, Sunder, Tun Tun, Mohan Choti, Ravikant etc. Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Bhagwan, Kumkum, and Shyama made their guest appearances in the film. This was Surinder Kapoor’s maiden film as a producer.

I was wondering as to how Surinder Kapoor could manage to rope in Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor for the qawwali song in the film. It became clear when I came to know that Surinder Kapoor was the cousin of Prithviraj Kapoor. When he shifted to Mumbai from Peshawar in 1950, Prithviraj Kapoor helped him in getting his first job as an assistant to K Asif in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960). Since the film took a lot of time to be completed, Surinder Kapoor left K Asif and became the Secretary to Geeta Bali. Kedar Kapoor, the film’s director was from Peshawar. Probably, he may also be related to Prithviraj Kapoor.

It was Geeta Bali who encouraged Surinder Kapoor to become a film producer. She arranged the finance, the crew and the cast. So, getting the guest actors for the qawwali song became an easy task for Surinder Kapoor. The film was launched in 1958 and got completed in 1963. The film did not fare well on the box office. This was the last released film of Geeta Bali.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) had six songs in the film written by Shailendra (5) and Anand Bakshi (1) which were set to music by Dattaram. Four songs have been covered on the Blog.

Here is the 5th song ‘Muhammad Shah Rangeele gaawat aaj prem raag’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Manna Dey on the words of Shailendra. The video clip of the song is not available on any video sharing platform. So, it is difficult to know as to in which context, this song was picturised in the film. My wild guess is that the song may have been picturised on Agha in a comical situation using the bandish-based classical song.

Muhammad Shah ‘Rangeela’ was the Mughal emperor during 1719 to 1748. He was a patron of performing arts and music. His court had many musicians, the prominent among them being Niyamat Khan who used to compose bandishes under his pen name. ‘Sadarang’ and his nephew, Feroz Khan under the pen name of ‘Adarang’. Sadarang has been credited with the introduction of Khayal as a form of Hindustani classical music. He composed many Khayal bandishes for his desciples which included a few women from the harem of Muhammed Shah ‘Rangeela’.

There are some persons who are known by their work and not by their names. Niyamat Khan was one of them whose name is unknown for the present generation. Some of us may have listened to his khayal bandishes rendered by stalwarts like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Ustad Amir Khan, Ustad Rashid Khan, etc without knowing that these were composed by Niyamat Khan ‘Sadarang’.

One of the Khayal bandish composed by Niyamat Khan was ‘Muhammad Shah rangeele re, tum bin main kya karoon badariya, nit na suhaawe’ in raag Miyan Ki Malhar in praise of Muhammad Shah. The song under discussion is based on this bandish with different ‘bole’ written by Shailendra and composed by Dattaram in raag ‘Miyan Ki Malhar’. It is rendered as ‘chhota khayal’.

By the way, Muhammad shah rangeele re from ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) was also based on the abovementioned bandish. Both ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) and ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) took a long time to be completed and released. So, it is difficult to guess as to which one of two films got inspired from this bandish first.

Mukesh and his Composers – 22
——————————–

We pay tributes to legendary singer Mukesh on his Remembrance Day today (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976). His voice, songs, and the rich legacy left behind continues to be remembered and cherished by fans across the globe.

February 12, 1982, Music Director’s Association had organized a programme at Mumbai’s Shanmukhananda Auditorium to celebrate 50 years of sound in Indian Cinema. Off course, the mega event is now also fondly remembered for Noor Jahan’s only travel from across the border after partition and her active participation in it.

In the programme, anchor Shabana Azmi, while introducing the life and singing career of Mukesh says that for having such pathos and honestly in the voice, it is necessary that apart from being a good singer, the person himself has to be a noble soul. I liked her description of Mukesh immensely and hence including it in his special post for the day. This nobility of Mukesh and his good deeds for society and his co-workers, has been mentioned in quite a few of my previous posts.
For adherent Mukesh fans, it very easy to pick a sample of their most favorite songs for the simple reason that there exists no sample and his entire body of thousand odd songs can be counted as best loved.

Continuing the series on Mukesh and his composers, I take up his association with composer Dattaram.
We all know that Dattaram was one of the main pillars on which the empire of Shanker Jaikishen stood and flourished. He worked for SJ camp almost all of his career but also had several opportunities to compose on his own name in many of the films. It is now an established fact that he could not come out of the shadows of SJ completely in spite of being immensely talented and hard working.

The curious cases of Dattaram and another favourite of mine Ghulam Mohammed intrigues me to no end. They had everything in them to create name and fame for themselves, but it appears they were too reluctant to venture out on their own to a far extent.

There are many videos, interviews, articles and blogs available on the web for the works of Datttaram and I am skipping referring the same.
Below is the table of collaboration of works of Mukesh with the composer.

An interesting fact on initial glance reveals that two prominent names of SJ camp are missing. Lyricist Shailendra and singer Lata. Off course, both have worked for Dattaram but when we filter Mukesh songs, we find them missing.

Again, what should I write about the songs enlisted below. Its signature Mukesh all the way starting with the immortal “aansoo bhari hain”. This song will forever remain an indisputable proof of the wonders the voice could create in lower tones of pathos songs with or without instruments. It was 1958 and Mukesh had just come out the clutches of his failed experiments and he grasped the year with all his might and went on to become Mighty Mukesh.

A cursory glance through the second column in the table below brings to the mind several memories of humming these songs. And, for obvious reasons, I again skip describing each of the songs.

Needless to say, I have again relied on the highly reliable Mukesh Geetkosh by Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji and thank him for the same.

S.No Name of the song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Aansoo bhari hain Parwarish (1958) Hasrat Jaipuri
2 Dil ne usey maan liya (Happy and Sad version) Santaan (1959) Hasrat Jaipuri

13 More Mann Mitwa Suna Morey Man Mitwaa (1965) Suman Kalyanpur Harishchandra Priyadarshi
14 Dekhi teri duniyaa arre Farishta (1968) Asad Bhopali

The duo worked together for 14 songs of which 13 are already represented on the blog and is yet another proof regarding their popularity. One duet with Suman Kalyanpur remains to be covered and is the song under consideration for the post. This duet is from a 1965 movie, Morey Man Mitwa, a Magadhi language film. The producer and director of the film are R. D. Bansal and Girish Ranjan respectively.

A chirpy and hummable love song, I am sure readers will like it on first listening.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 97
———————————————————————————–

‘Jab Se Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963’ is an eligible movie under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today (30 november 2020) as one of its songs was posted on 30.11.2010.

Though one song of this movie was also posted on 18.11.2010, we missed the opportunity of discussing its song on that day ten years later. Our dear Prakash ji had already sent lyrics for two songs to cover these two occasions. Today gives us another opportunity of covering a song from this movie under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge” series.

Following six posts were published this day ten years ago on 30 november 2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhoome re kali bhanwraa ulajh gayaa kaanton mein Naukri-1954 All songs covered
Hamko hanste dekh zamaanaa jalta hai Ham Sab Chor Hain- 1956 All songs covered
Aag lagaanaa kyaa mushkil hai Kangan-1959 All songs covered
Maane naa maane naa maane naa Saweraa-1958 All songs covered
Ye din din hain khushi ke Jabse Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963 03 songs posted
Hamse hoti muhabbat jo tumko Muhabbat Isko Kehte Hain-1965 All songs covered

Though the blog scored a ‘sixer’ on the last day of the month of that year 2010 it left ‘three balls’ without scoring a single run 😊 i.e. 27th, 28th & 29th November’2010 were the ‘dot’ days for the blog. Still it managed to hit a century with this ‘six’ on the last day of the month. Total score of posts of November’2010 is 105. (Things like this happen in Hindi movies or specially in ‘MKD’ movies 😊

Now, in the current month, the blog is still struggling at sixty-one posts till the time of writing of this post.

Let us just take a quick look at how the blog has so far been performing in the month of November in previous years since its ‘inception’;

S.No. Year No of posts

HFGK Vol-IV mentions the following seven songs in this movie, all written by Shailendra and composed by Datttram.

So far, only three songs from this movie ‘JAB SE TUMHE DEKHA HAI-1963’ have been posted on the blog; (highlighted with their links)

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

Let us enjoy today’s lovely nok jhonk song and close November’2020 on a happy note for the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ and move on to December …

If we look at the statistics of the month of November over the years, this will be the first November where number of posts cross fifties and do not not enter nineties. 😊 Out of twelve Novembers so far, seven have scored centuries, two closed in the forties, and three in nineties. This, the thirteenth November for the blog seems to be ending in the sixties today …

over to the song now …

Blog Day :

4399 Post No. : 15778

Today (3 august 2020) happens to be the festival of Raakhi. Seeing that we are in the grips of a pandemic, most festivals in India are coming and going without much celebration. Things are not what they used to be till last year. Hopefully, we will be able to overcome this pandemic and will be able to celebrate all festivals and all other occasions of get together with the same kind of impunity that was taken for granted till a few months ago.

When the blog began on 19 July 2008, it had very small traffic. The blog used to get less than 50 hits daily. I was counting on the Raakhi festival day to see record traffic. The Raakhi festival that year fell on 16 august. I knew what song to cover on the occasion. It was the iconic raakhi song, bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana (Chhoti Bahan)(1959). That day, the blog saw a record breaking 198 visits ! I walked on cloud nine for several days after that. 🙂

Today (3 august 2020) is the festival of Raakhi again. This time I had not even decided upon the raakhi song. But I can always count of Prakashchandra. He keeps sending (and resending) songs for all important occasion. So I am never short of songs to chose from, eve after I have covered most well known songs for such occasions. I have covered all well known Raakhi songs during last 12 Raakhi festival occasions still Prakashchandra has been able to send me many more songs from the occasions.

Today, I have chosen a less known song from a less known movie. The movie is “Farishta”(1968), a B grade movie under the banner of Taj Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Dev Kumar, Nivedita, Asha Nadkarni, Jagirdar, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Master Shahid etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

This song is suung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I heard this song for the first time today, and it is quite a catchy song to listen to. Definitely a forgotten gem, that deserved to be better known among music lovers.

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


Song-Bhaiyya mere pyaare raakhi bandhaao bhaiyya (Farishta)(1968) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Dattaram

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 27
—————————————————————————

“Qaidi No 911″(1959) was produced and directed by Aspi for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shaikh Mukhtar, Nanda, Minoo Mumtaz, Daisy Irani, Mehmood, Mukri, Gajanan Jagirdar,Hiralal,Achla sachdev,Protima devi,Babu raje,uma dutt,tuntun,
Nagpal,altaf,Bhudo advani,fazloo,mithoo miya,mohan sandow,ram murthy,shetty,shafi,gulab,
prem sagar,hanuman,Krishan kumar,bagla,afsar jhan,munira begum & honey irani

On this day ten years ago, two songs were covered. One song from “Samundar”(1957) and one song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959).
“Samundar”(1957) has been YIPPEED by now. That leaves “Qaidi No 911″(1959) as the only candidate for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Qaidi No 911″(1959) had six songs in it. Four songs (including a multiple version song) have been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the songs from this movie that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zaraa Multiple version song 29-Sep-2009
Pyaar bhari ye ghataayen 9-May-2010
Tere teer ko hamne pyaar se dil mein rakh liyaa 2-Jan-2012

Latching on to this Blog Ten year Challenge opportunity, Prakashchandra has sent me the lyrics of a song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959). this song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised as a roadside tamasha dance song on the beach of Chaupati I guess. Mukri is trying to attract customers for his bioscope, but the potential customers get diverted to watch the dance performance of Nanda. 🙂

The picturistion is somewhat reminiscent of “Don”(198) song,“Ee hai Bambai nagariya tu dekh babua”.

Blog Day: 4260 Post No.: 15483

“Choron Ka Chor”(1970) was produced and directed by Muhammad Hussain for M H Films, Bombay. This “stunt” movie had Dara Singh, Shabnam, Madan Puri, Shetty, Agha, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar, Jayshree T, Randheer, Meena, Neelam, Paro devi, Gul Hameed, Kamini Devi, Shefali, Jerry, Anjum, Dada Kurte, Moolchand, Dilip Daagi, Sabir, V Gopal, Vishwas Kunte, Master Ripple, Indira Bansal, Habeeb, Trilok Singh, Tier Abdullah etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Details of the three songs covered in the blog are :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 O mere dildaar arre na kar tu inkaar (Choron Ka Chor) 1681 26-July-2009
2 Patli qamar tirchhi nazar (Choron Ka Chor) 3632 9-March-2011
3 Dil dhhadka wohi shola phir bhhadka (Choron Ka Chor) 15400 23-January-2020

As can be seen from the above, the previous song from the movie was covered on 23 january 2020 and that was a blog century song cum Farooque Kaiser’s 100 th song in the blog as a lyricist. That song was a rare song.

Here is the fourth and final song from “Choron Ka Chor”(1970). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

This song too is a rare song.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a club dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, all the songs of “Choron Ka Chor”(1970) are covered in the blog and the movie now joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day : 4206 Post No. : 15400

Regulars of this blog must have got used to the fact that only one or two “new” songs get discussed daily in this blog and that is all. But oldtimer regulars would recall days of yore when six to seven songs were discussed in a day. On occasions, I had the mortification of being admonished by a subscriber to the blog. “I am a music lover but not so much that I can tolerate getting a song post notification every hour”- he stated. He must have registered for the blog on those days when I was able to post even twelve and thirteen posts in a day. 🙂

This is the fifth post of the day. Going by the present sedate ways of the blog, it is rather unusual. The last time this blog had 5 posts in a day was on 17 march 2019. That was the only such occurrence in the blog in 2019. In comparison, 2018 saw 37 such days. In 2012, when the blog was operating at a Sehwag like strike rate, we had 60 such days. As many as eight songs were covered daily on 39 days in 2012 !

So temporarily, it is feeling like old days for me. But today the reason for this suddenly found enthusiasm is that I want to complete the 154th century writeup of the blog before the weekend, when the going will get tough as far as posting articles is concerned.

I find that the blogging mindset is different when one is posting many posts in a day vis a vis the situation when one intends to post just one write-up. In discussing just one (or two) song in a day, we take a conservative approach. We basically become status quo-ist. On the other hand, when one posts many songs in a day one acts like an adventur-ist.

A conservative man would get defeated by the weather conditions (cold foggy winters) while an adventurist man would wake up early and go on a morning walk when the entire world is hiding under razaai. I find that even on this count I have become an adventurist. For the last few days, I have started going on a morning walk come fog or cold. No, I have not done it voluntarily. It is my pet Chhote who has suddenly become fond of being taken for a walk. So he insists that I take him for a walk in the morning, in the afternoon, and in fact all the time. So now I have started to wake up early, and have started walking early morning, often in chilly low visibility foggy conditions. And after that, I have begun to feel like a million dollars. This winter weather is not so daunting, I have rediscovered. I in fact regularly used to wake up even earlier (at 5 AM) during my stay at Bareilly. So now I am rediscovering my old self when I used to be more determined, and less conservative.

And that determination may well have been getting reflected here in the blog today. 🙂 It is the fifth and final song for the day. and I am realising that covering so many posts in a day is not all that tough. 🙂

In the process, I ended up listeing to lots and lots of songs yesterday night (as I used to do earlier) and I rediscovered the pleasures of stumbling upon gems after musical gems. Yesterday, Sudhir Jee asked me if I had any particular song in mind for this century post and I replied in negative. Within a few hours, I was spoilt for choice ! I discovered so many great songs that I had never heard before. and that is the situation when I may have already heard more that 15400 plus songs !

This song is from “Choron Ka Chaor” (1970). This forgotten movie was a stunt movie which was produced and directed by Muhammad Hussain for MH Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Shabnam, Madan Puri, Shetty, Agha, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar, Jayshree T, Randheer, Meena, Neelam, Paro Devi, Gul Hamid, Kamini Devi, Shefali, Jerry, Anjum, Dada Kurte, Moolchand, Dilip Dagi, Sabir, V Gopal, Vishwas Kunte, Master Ripple, Indira Bansal, Habeeb, Trilok Singh, Tiger Abdullah etc. in it.

The movie had four forgotten songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from the movie. This song is one that I had never heard before. It is sung by two female singers who are better known as sisters of their more famous singing sisters. Most of the time they used to get duets with more celebrated singers. Here these two relatively ‘unsung’ singers are given an opportunity to carry a song on their own shoulders. And I must say that the song is just FANTASTIC. Too bad that this song has been forgotten. Or may be it was not even heard by public. I know for sure that I had never heard this song before.

A fantastic song that we are covering as the 15400th song post in the blog. Only the audio of the song is available. Even the audio is quite rare to come by. This song deserves better treatment.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. This song sounds like a synchronized dance song performed by two female dancers in a ‘Villain’s den’ situation.

This song also marks the 100th song of Farooque Kaiser in the blog as a lyricist. Quite a befitting song to bring up his 100th song in the blog ! He becomes the 30th lyricist and 98th artist overall to complete a century of songs in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for the continuous support and encouragement that has ensured continuous existence of this blog for over 4200 days (4206 days to be precise ! ). Let us hope that we will see many more such landmarks, and that the frequency of these landmarks will go up as was the case in the past.

zara ruk ruk ke
zara jhuk jhuk ke
lehraana

wahi shola
phir bhadka

baat kehti hoon patey ki lut jaaoge

दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का
वही शोला
फिर भड़का
पास आना नहीं मेरे जल जाओगे
बात कहती हूँ पते की लुट जाओगे
दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का
वही शोला
फिर भड़का
पास आना नहीं मेरे जल जाओगे
बात कहती हूँ पते की लुट जाओगे
दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का

ये अखियाँ
अखियाँ
ये अखियाँ
उस पे ये मेरा शरमाना
हाए अल्लाह
अल्लाह
हाए अल्लाह
कर देगा तुम्हें दीवाना
ज़रा धीरे से
ज़रा हौले से
तड़पाना
दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का

जी हमसे
हमसे
जी हमसे
जाओगे कहाँ तुम बचके
ओ सजना
सजना
ओ सजना
पग पग पे कमरिया लचके
ज़रा तन तन के
ज़रा बन बन के
तरसाना
दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का

ये जल्वा
जल्वा
ये जल्वा
कैसा है ज़रा कहने दो
ये पर्दा
पर्दा
ये पर्दा
आँखों पे पड़ा रहने दो
ज़रा रुक रुक के
ज़रा झुक झुक के
लहराना

दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का
वही शोला
फिर भड़का
पास आना नहीं मेरे जल जाओगे
बात कहती हूँ पते की लुट जाओगे
दिल धड़का
दिल धड़का
वही शोला
फिर भड़का
पास आना नहीं मेरे जल जाओगे
बात कहती हूँ पते की लुट जाओगे

Missing Films of 1960s – 104
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, unbeknownst to myself, I crossed a personal milestone on the blog. I posted my 1300th article, and song. 🙂 The past few weeks, well, months – have been very slow as far as my activity on the blog is concerned. My last century milestone was – believe you me – full eleven months ago. I had crossed the the 1200th mark in May last year. And now it is April. The activity being so low, it did not even come to mind to check and see what my score was. And so, unmindful of it, I reached the 1300th post, and just posted the song.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a prompt message from Avinash ji, congratulating me for the milestone. I scrambled to check on the blog and my excel database. Yes, Avinash ji was right on the dot, and I had missed it. . . wo. . . So this discovery was followed by a brief exchange with Atul ji. We inserted the customary sentence in the banner of the post, announcing the milestone. I told Atul ji how I had missed it myself. His response came back – that yes, he was aware, and was waiting for a special post for the occasion. 😀 😀 And I am like – ye lo, aur phans gaye!!! Here I am, saving the grey cells and the idea energy for the 15K celebration post, and now I have to do one more special just before. Goodness. So I am going to give it a try, do not know what is going to be the outcome.  🙂

Generally, when I run out of ideas, then the easiest starting point I have found is to start dabbling in numbers. (I think Atul ji also does the same. . . 🙂 ). So here goes. Counting this post, our total tally on this blog is 14975. Of these, only 3948 are posts that are guest posts. This computes to ~ 26.4% of the total. The implication here is significant and evident. The remaining 73.6% is the handiwork of our fearless leader – a whopping eleven thousand twenty seven posts have been done by Atul ji. If I extend this analysis to the next logical step – we are at 3914th day of blog’s continued activity. Simple calculation shows that Atul ji has been posting on an average of 3.8 (well, nearly 4) posts on a daily basis, for the past 10 years, 8 months and 19 days – WITHOUT A BREAK. Compare that to the guest posting activity. Normalizing that over the entire stretch of 3914 days, the average guest post over this entire period is 1 (ONE) per day.

I will extrapolate that now, even one step further. Till date, 31 guest posters have been accounted for on our blog, with no. of individual posts ranging from 1 to 1300. Ah yes, I could get into a lot of statistics here trying to compute the normal deviation, the standard deviation, the medians and the percentiles. But I will not bore you with that grand analysis. I present another perspective to this division of effort across the team, which is abundantly spectacular, to say the least. Atul ji has been producing 4 times more posts single handedly in comparison to this platoon of 31 guest posters, ON A DAILY BASIS. Now what do you have to say to that? 🙂 And if you ask me what I have to say to that – this is what I have to say to that – if ever I get into a kabaddi tournament, I will simply desert the game, if Atul ji is in the opposing team. 😀 😀

We all put together are Lilliputians to Atul ji’s Lemuel Gulliver. I have exhausted my entire stock of headgear to doff at this fantastic accomplishment – a prolificacy unparalleled anywhere in the digital domains.

And so, after this analysis, अब मैं क्या कहूँ अपने तेरह सौ के बारे में। 😀 😀 Just this – अगर कबड्डी खेलेंगे तो अतुल जी, मैं आपकी टीम में ही रहूँगा। 😀 😀

But of course, the joy of the journey is massive, and continues undiminished. क्या क्या तो गाने मिल रहे हैं!! और क्या क्या पता चल रहा है कितने ही गुमनाम कलाकारों के बारे में!!

This journey is laden with discoveries so abundant – one is running out of nerve cell memories to keep all this information bounded within. The known and the famous aside, and the well heard and popular aside – the joy of discovering discovering jewels of the diamond quality; and if gold it is 24 carats pure, and if silver – well it is सौ फीसदी टंच (100% pure). Whatever measure you want to throw at it, this travelogue of the discovery of musical gems is the means and the end in itself, a blessed reward unto itself.

Take this song today. The film is ‘Beqasoor’ from 1969. And the mind wants to say – “अब क्या मिसाल दूँ मैं तुम्हारे शबाब की”. I heard this song for the first time today. As I was browsing through the list of remaining films of 1960s, I picked on this film. In the process to locate the songs of this film, I was able to track down two of them online – both Rafi Sb duets, one with Lata Mangeshkar and one with Suman Kalyanpur. Checking the Geet Kosh, I find four songs listed for this film. The remaining two are Asha Bhosle solos, and as far as I could try and track, I am not able to locate these Asha solo numbers anywhere online. So, delving back into my collection, I am immediately able to locate these songs. I play the first one, and immediate reaction is – this song comes online today.

A lilting racy rhythm, a very catchy arrangement of the instruments, and a very appealing construction – quite the handiwork of Dattaram. Words are from the pen of Farooq Qaiser. And the rendering by Asha ji, simply superb. Even in the absence of the video clip, it is easy to surmise that this would be a song of Helen type. As I check out the cast list for this film, I do not find Helen in it, but another name would possibly do justice to this type of a song. The list of actors is given as Dara Singh, Sanjana, Maruti, Ulhas, Shaam Kumar, Ratnamala, Dhanraj, V Gopal, Habeeb, Sadhana Khote, Dilip Dutt, Meenakshi, and Madhumati. Possibilities are more than one. But I would not hazard a guess. I would request the circle of readers and friends – if anyone has seen this film, please add more information about this song and the film itself.

Wonderfully superb discovery. Listen and enjoy.
