Hullo Atuldom

The screen turns to a dark, cloudy sky. There is thunder and lightning. A shimmering disk appears against this backdrop, accompanied by music that has certain magical quality about it. As the background score gently works its way to a crescendo, finishing with a flourish of cymbals, a Greek column-like pedestal, bearing the ‘NH Films’ insignia appears against a smoke-filled screen. Almost instantly a booming voice recites a couplet, with a soft but distinct drum roll accompanying the oration. The couplet goes:

Kya ishq ne samjha hai, kya husn ne jaana hai
Hum khaaq-nasheenon ki thokar mein zamaana hai

The voiceover ends with an emphatic drumbeat. The credits follow led by the opening credit, NASIR HUSAIN FILMS Presents…..

This is from the introductory page of the book “Music Masti Modernity- The cinema of NASIR HUSAIN” by Akshay Manwani – a gift that my daughter gave me last year for Mother’s Day. From the book I learnt that Maulana Abul Kalam Azad was Nasir Husain’s mother’s maternal uncle. He (Nasir Husain) was the fourth of five children with Tahir Husain being his younger brother. Actors Tariq (of kya hua tera waada) and Aamir Khan are his nephews where Tariq is his older brother – Anees’s son and Aamir is Tahir Husain’s son. His grandson Imran Khan (daughter Nuzhat’s son) is an actor. A very interesting trivia that I learnt from the book is that Nasir Sa’ab’s wife – Ayesha Khan- was born Margaret Francina Lewis, and she was an assistant choreographer in films.Subodh Mukherjee used his assistant Nasir and the choreographer’s assistant whenever he setup shots and almost played cupid in their life.

We (the regular followers of this blog) know that Nasir Husain began his life in the film industry as a writer at Filmistan when the screenwriter Aghajani Kashmeri fell ill and Nasir Sa’ab was asked to complete the unfinished dialogues for “Chandni Raat” (1949); the book says he was not credited for this. We also know that he went on to produce and direct films and gave audiences breezy musical romantic entertainers right till the 1980s when he directed “Zabardast” (1985) which was produced by Mushir-Riaz which had Rati Agnihotri- Jaya Prada- Tanuja- Geeta Kak- Sunny Deol- Rajiv kapoor- Sanjeev Kumar- Amrish Puri and others in the cast.

1988 saw Nasir Sa’ab’s son Mansoor Khan turn director with “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” which was produced by Nasir Husain Films, and the story-screenplay and dialogues were by Nasir Husain. The next two films directed by Mansoor Khan- “Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar” {JJWS (1992)} and “Akele Hum Akele Tum” (1995) also had dialogues by Nasir Husain. That means career began and ended Nasir Sa’ab with being a writer. I think he hung up his boots post this.

“Yaadon Ki Baraat” (1973) made by Nasir Husain Films had a long song which changes beat/ tempo etc. with ‘Dil mil gaye toh um khil gaye’- which is almost like a second song with a life of its own. The song closes with Tariq, Zeenat Aman, Vijay Arora and the whole audience breaking into ‘Dum Maro Dum’ and we get the third song. Nasir Husain repeated this kind of song picturisation in ‘Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin’ and ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’. Mansoor Khan followed his father’s formula of two-three songs in one with ‘Jawaan ho yaaro yeh tumko hua kya’; ‘deewane hum pyar ke, parwaane hum pyar ke’ and ‘Naam hai mera Fonseca” in “JJWS”. Today we shall see one of the three.

We can see Aamir Khan, Ayesha Julka, Pooja Bedi, Deepak Tijori, Mamik Singh, Kiran Jhaveri, Deven Bhojani etc in this stage song which is sung by Udit Narayan and Vijeyta Pandit. It is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Jatin-Lalit.

Incidentally 13th March was Nasir Husain’s death anniversary and 14th March is Aamir Khan’s birthday. So here is a song connecting the Uncle and Nephew.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 6
———————————–————––—

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 41st remembrance day :

Writing a post of a song by Mohammed Rafi Sahab is almost a second nature thing for me. I have not counted but nearly 50 % on my post must be of his songs, the exalted one, who was especially blessed by the Almighty with a life, spend smiling and spreading smiles as far as I know. Some people do want to remember him by the sad songs which he sang with equal spirit, giving them his all, that the song, situation and composition demanded, the same as he did for other songs. I found this photo, and see who has the widest smile of them all: <a href=”https://in.pinterest.com/pin/46724914867514223/&#8221; this and this this .

There are platitudes and eulogies and tributes paid in honour of celebrities, when they pass away, nowadays it is usually on social media. And then there is the sea of humanity, that erupted on a rainy friday of Ramadhan 1980 on the streets of Bandra and Juhu. It was 1980, not the time when the dwellers of this city could afford a new umbrella every monsoon. So it was black umbrellas galore on the tv screen, and many people who were without umbrella, having come out to brave the weather or travelled overnight from other parts of the country. They all had one aim, to accompany their beloved Rafi Sahab to the final destination. To walk two steps alongwith the ‘janaza’ of a ‘nek banda’, with the prayers for the departed soul’s maghfirah on every lip and in the heart.

I realized the real pain of losing someone close and dear 9 years ago, when my elder sister expired. A few days after that, my father said that he didn’t know what to ask from the Almighty in du’aa, as most of my du’aa was for her health and long life. In my turn I told him that though we all are grieving and crying on her passing away, but the tears and sadness is all for us actually. The thought of living on without that dear one, makes us feel lonely and bereft.

A year before she died, I had visited her in Bangalore. She was over the top to have me visit her, and we went to a lot of places. One day we both were going somewhere and we passed a ‘qabrastaan’ where her mother-in-law was buried. She said a prayer and told me we should always recite the prayer whenever we pass a qabrastan. The prayer roughly translates as “today you are resting here, we shall follow you tomorrow, for sure”.

Some similar thoughts on passing away of Rafi sahab are expressed in this song written by Anand Bakshi. This is a unique song in the film ‘Kroadh’ where Amitabh Bachchan is called on stage to pay tribute of Rafi Sahab on his 9th death anniversary programme. Amitabh Bachchan says a few sentences and starts singing the song:

na fankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya…
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa….

The singer here is Mohammed Aziz who himself has passed away a few months ago. He has sung this song in memory of his idol very feelingly and there are tears in the eyes of Amitabh as he sings on stage and also the audience who are watching it. The scenes of ‘janaaza’ that Amitabh Bachchan is seen as recalling, were truly witnessed by him as well as Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyarelal(possibly). I am sure about Amitabh Bachchan having witnessed it funeral as I have seen a photographs of him with Amjad Khan, Vinod Khanna and Rajesh Khanna. Here is the article where he Amitabh remembers the same.
This article has some rare photos of the fateful day.

The song is so appropriate for this occasion, that I am neglecting to post a song by Rafi Sahab himself. But this song expresses the feelings of Mohammed Aziz, Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Anand Bakshi, as the record holder for having written highest no. of film songs must be the lyricist with the highest no. of songs written for Rafi Sahab too. Laxmikant-Pyarelal are also having similar record with Rafi Sahab. Right from ‘Dosti’ and ‘Parasmani’, they were the one’s who justified the ‘Dosti’ and stood with Rafi Sahab through his thick and thin.

These artists composed and performed the song 9 years after Rafi Sahab’s passing away, and gave words and expression to the feelings of millions of his fans throughout the world.

We all are witnessing a once in a century pandemic that is taking a heavy toll of precious human lives. There is information overload on this topic. Much of the “information” that we are being bombarded with is not useful, and may even be harmful.

I have been observing all this. I have tried to figure out what is going on. I have tried to piece together useful information about this virus. Here I would present my take on this pandemic and how I think we should deal with the situation.

It seems that very few people actually have an idea how covid infection takes place and how it spreads. Awareness about how to protect oneself against this virus also seems low among people. The outcome of low awareness about this virus has led to disastrous consequences as we all have seen.

In a situation where most people are pressing the panic button and losing their heads, we need to take a calm look at things so that we know how to deal with this situation. I will try to keep it as simple and easy to understand as is possible.

covid 19 virus can be likened to a well trained terrorist group. It is trained and armed and indoctinated outside our borders. Then they are sent across the border to create terrorist acts within our border. Here terrorists are equivalent to covid 19 virus, whereas our country is like our body.

How do these terrorists cross the border ? If they find no security across the border, then they just sneak in unchallenged. If security is tight then they try to sneak in while their army resort to shelling across the border to divert the attention of our security forces. These terrorists then try to sneak in.

These terrorists, if they sneak in, try to create terror attacks wherever they can. If security is tight, then their attempts are foiled most of the time. If security is slack or the terrorists get local support then they are able to create serious damage.

If the terrorists are able to fan out inside the whole country then they can create terror attacks all over the country. All this happened in India with regularity not too far back. This is the most severe kind of terror attacks that India has seen.

With this background, that all Indians can readily identify with, I will try to explain how covid 19 virus acts in a similar way.

Covid 19 virus tries to gain entry into human body. It is a respiratory virus, so it can only enter our body through the external respiratory parts, viz nose and mouth, and also through eyes. So if our body is a country then nose and mouth and eyes are our border posts through which this virus tries to gain entry. When this virus was unknown, it had a free passage into the human body through nose and mouth of unsuspecting victims. When its existence became known then people began wearing masks. It is as if earlier the borders were unmanned but now they need tight security. Face masks are the border security force that that guard our entrances (nose and mouth).

If nose and mouth are guarded then still the virus may lurk in, seeking to enter when the guard is down, viz when the face mark is removed. People do remove face masks when they feel that there is no virus around. Virus lurks in the air, on the person, on clothes, exposed part of the body etc. If a person touches something (on his person or any object containing virus) and then touches his nose or mouth, this is the opening that the virus needed. It then enters the respiratory tract of the body. Now you know why there is so much stress on sanitising objects, hands etc. This also shows us what is the importance of six feet distance. If people stand far off, then the chances of virus getting transmitted from one person to another reduces considerably.

If despite all precautions, some virus enters the respiratory system, its quantity (viral load) will be low. If we are outright careless (no mask, no social distancing) then our respiratory system may receive a heavy viral load.

What happens when the virus manages to enter the respiratory system dodging the mask? It depends on the preparedness near the border.

Masks at the nose are like BSF who guard the border. If the terrorists cross the border, then they have to face the army, who are stationed near the border. In case of covid infection, the army that confronts the virus is known as body’ immunity system. It is basically white blood cells of blood. These WBC are the army soldiers to deal with the infiltrators. These WBCs are trained to tackle known viruses that they have tackled in the past. As soon as they come across a previously known virus, they are immediately able to mobilise anti bodies to tackle that virus. The antibodies can be readily and rapidly deployed. On the other hand, when a new virus, viz covid 19 virus enters about which the WBCs have no previous information, then WBCs take some time to get prepared. As WBCs gather more information about the new virus, they begin to create anti bodies to tackle the virus. But for a new virus, especially if a heavy viral load had entered the respiratory system, the WBCs response may turn out to be slow and inadequate. In the meanwhile the virus is able to do considerable damage to the respiratory system. By the time the WBCs begin to create antibodies, it may be too late.

So, If the viral load is less, then the virus is stopped there itself. If viral load is heavy and the person is not vaccinated then the virus may overwhelm the immunity system and enter further into the body, namely the lungs. Lungs are like the different states of the country. The terrorists have now spread throughout the country, and now they can wreak severe damage. The security in the interior of the country is in the hands of police, which is far too ill equipped to deal with such security threats than the army. Same is the case with the immunity system of the body, which is helpless if the virus gains access to the lungs.

Let us say that the person was already vaccinated. In that case, the immunity system was familiar with this virus. So as soon as the virus entered the respiratory system, the WBCs, being already aware about the nature of the virus, will be able to deploy antibodies immediately. So a vaccinated body is like a country with a strong well trained and well prepared army near the border. In that case most of the infiltrating virus would get neutralised there itself.

If the immunity is weak and person is not vaccinated, then the virus overwhelms the resistance at the entrance and invades the lungs. In that situation, the virus starts rapidly infecting the lungs that are unprotected and are now at their mercy. The virus damages the alveoli (tiny air sacs). The function of the alveolus is to transfer oxygen to the blood vessels. These blood vessels or capillaries carry the oxygen to the RBCs (Red blood cells). It is the RBCs that finally deliver the oxygen to all the internal organs in the body.

The virus works by damaging the wall and the lining of the alveolus and capillaries. The debris from the damage(exudate) , which is plasma protein accumulates on the alveolus wall and thickens the lining. As the walls’ thicken, the transfer of oxygen to the red blood cells is impaired. The thicker the wall gets, the more difficult it gets to transfer oxygen to the red blood cells, which causes difficulty in breathing as the body is running short of oxygen. And the lack of oxygen to the internal organs results in a deficit in the body and impairs the functioning of the organs. At this juncture, the body fights to increase oxygen intake.

And the first response of the body is to destroy the virus and prevent its replication, but if the individual has weaker immunity then the body is unable to stop the virus, and this aggravates the crisis.

As the air sacs are damaged, there is an influx of liquid which is mostly inflamed cells and protein and this fluid build-up leads to pneumonia. This further impairs the oxygen intake by the lungs and hinders the oxygen exchange. Due to the novelty of the Covid 19 strain, there is no immediate treatment to directly cure pneumonia in Covid 19 patients and they are mostly given supportive care.

There are some key indicators that the doctors use to judge the onset and severity of this severe condition called Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in infected individuals:

(1)Hypoxia – Low oxygen levels in the blood, due to damage to the alveolus

(2)Breathing difficulties and shortness of breath

(3)Chest x-rays of the lungs exhibit an opaque and glassy look against the black background

(4)Worsening symptoms over the course of time, from the day of detection of the virus

Is there no hope if the virus reach the lungs ? There is ! And it is this fact which is the most important thing to understand about this virus. The ammunition of the virus gets exhausted in nine days and so the virus gets ineffective nine days after it enters the body. If the damage to the body can be kept as low as possible though medication and other means then after nine days the recovery process begins. So the patient must be kept alive for nine days. If it can be achieved then he or she will survive. Forget low damage, even patients who suffered over 80% damage to their lungs have survived !

Virus may have become ineffective but it may have taken a heavy toll on the lungs by that time. The patient must lie prone on his/ her tummy and try to clear the contents of the lungs by coughing them out. Coughed up exudate (phlegm) would be variously coloured when the infection is severe. After a few days the colour would keep changing, from catechu colour (most severe) to black color (less severe)and finally as the infection reduces, the phlegm would become white. Finally phlegm would stop.

As the phlegm comes out, space is created in the lung and that makes breathing easier. Patients who are hospitalised and they have oxygen fitted on them mistakenly believe that they only have to keep lying down passively without doing anything. Not taking any proactive action to clear up the phlegm in their lungs is a mistake because in that case the situation will keep getting worse because the oxygen being pumped into their lungs will have no place to go in the lungs. If oxygen cannot reach the lungs then naturally they cannot be sent to RBC and from there to various parts of the body, and that would lead to serious complications.

It is seen that not just patients, even medical practitioners are often not very helpful (mainly because of their lack of experience). For instance, when a patient goes for chest x ray or HRCT, the report just states the facts, without any expert and helpful comments. A typical (and actual) HRCT report stated- “CT severity score of -36/40”

What will a normal patient do on reading the above ! He/ she will most probably die of shock if not covid because it indicates that the damage to the lung is over 80 %. Fortunately, the above patient happened to be the sister of my wife. My wife told her sister that she did not have to worry. The virus had done all it could and now the lung condition was only going to improve. To make space in the lungs, she advised her sister to do exercises that would expel the phlegm (technical term for this substance is exudate) stuck in her lungs. My wife’s sister followed the advice scrupulously. There was noticeable improvement in her condition. After a couple of weeks, her scan showed perfectly clear lung condition !

It was not the first case where my wife helped save a life. Last year, her brother too had suffered from covid and he too had delayed getting himself checked and treated, leading to a lung condition that was even worse. Even there, correct and timely advice by my wife helped save the life of her brother.

In my wife’s opinion, Rohit Sardana, the news anchor faced a similar situation as faced by her brother and sister and he could have been saved if he had received correct medical advice of the kind that she gave to her brother and sister. In Rohit Sardana’s case, he was in home isolation and he was making good recovery and was feeling better. It was on the advice of some well meaning colleague that he got his HRCT done. The HRCT showed similar severity as in case of my sister in law. But Rohit Sardana did not have the advantage of a good doctor’s advice who would tell him that the worst was over for him. Looking at the severity of his lung report, he went into shock and got himself admitted to a hospital, where he died soon thereafter.

So, to summarise all the above discussion, it can be said that the best protection against covid 19 is a properly worn mask. Do all in your ability to ensure that the virus cannot enter your respiratory system. The virus can enter your respiratory system only through nose and mouth (and in exceptional cases through eyes). Protect these entrances to your respiratory system with your life. If in rare cases virus does get in, only a light load of virus gets in if you have taken precautions, so that your present immunity system can deal with it. Do not be foolhardy to offer a free passage to the virus by going around without mask. Allowing a huge viral load to enter your respiratory system believing that you have a great immunity system is nothing but suicide. Such people will be mercilessly shown their mortality by the virus. Once the virus attacks your lung, then you will be forced to run around from pillar to post, but all these efforts will largely be fruitless. A mask costing a few rupees, and a disciplined lifestyle is more effective in preventing covid than all that desperate scramble clamouring for hospital beds, oxygen, remdesivir etc, and all that at black market prices.

And please get yourself vaccinated at the first opportunity available. India is one of the few countries that can produce its own vaccines and so India is not dependent on foreign supplies (which are difficult to come by). Most people are getting it for free in government facilities. but if some private hospitals are offering it against payment, then pay for it, avoid long waiting lists of government hospitals and get yourself vaccinated. Paying a few hundreds, or even a couple of thousands of rupees for the doses of this vaccine is fully worth it as will protect you from this deadly virus.

While discussing this deadly respiratory disease, I had decided that this article should be accompanied by a song dealing with “Saans”. The first “saans” song that I was reminded of was this song of “Aashiqui”(1990) but I thought that this song was already covered. On checking up, I heaved a sigh of relief (pun unintended) because this song was not yet covered in the blog.

Produced by Gulshan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt, “Aashiqui”(1990) had Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal, Reema Lagoo, Deepak Tijori, Avtar Gill, Tom Alter, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Sunil Rege, Homi Wadia, Anang Desai etc in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

This movie turned out to be a musical blockbuster. The story of the movie was quite run of the mill and no great shakes, but the music made the movie a super duper hit.

The song under discussion has two versions. THe movie begins with the male version sung by Kumar Sanu. This song is picturised as a hotel/ club song. Rahul Roy lip syncs the song. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The female version song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal. Its video does not seem to be available. I had watched this movie in New Delhi and I vaguely recall having seen the female version also. But its video does not seem to be available now. In any case, it was the male version which was the more popular.

The song likens the need for a “sanam” to the need for “saans”. We take “saans” for granted, but not any longer, seeing the clamour of medical oxygen in these times. One never imagined that a time may come when one would be willing to pay money to be able to breath oxygen artificially. God has given us the ability to breathe this air for free. Let us hope that we will continue to be able to avail of this gift of being able to breathe naturally.

Today (12 May 2021) is also International Nurses’ day. On this occasion, let us all hail and appreciate the great service that they and other medical personnel are rendering in combating this pandemic.

har haseen dhadkan mein pyaar ki baaten hain
har haseen dhadkan mein pyaar ki baaten hain
har jawaan mehfil mein yaar ki baaten hain
jahaan nazm hai wahin hai ghazal
jahaan dhoop hai wahin hai kanwal
seene se lipte rahe ae kisi ke yaadon ke pal
dost ki zaroorat hai jaise
dost ki zaroorat hai jaise dosti ke liye
haan ik sanam chaahiye ae ae aashiqui ke liye
saanson ki zaroorat hai jaise
saanson ki zaroorat hai jaise zindagi ke liye
bas ik sanam chaahiye ae ae aashiqui ke liye
bas ik sanam chaahiye ae ae aashiqui ke liye
aashiqui ke liye
aashiqui ke liye
aashiqui ke liye

“Dheere Dheere“ –

Dheere Dheere Machal Ae Dil-e-Beqaraar

Dheere Dheere Chal Chaand Gagan Mein

Dheere Se Jaana Bagiyan Mein O Bhanwra

Dheere Se Aa Ja Ri Ankhiyan Mein Nindiyaa Aa Ja Ri Aa Ja

Dheere Dheere Bol Koi Sun Na Le

Dheere Chal Dheere Chal O Bheegi Hawa

O More Sainya Ji Utrenge Paar Re Nadiyaa Dheere  Baho

Pal Pal O Pal Samay Tu Dheere Dheere Chal

Then there are songs have the word in different context, like;

O Gaadi Waale Gaadi Dheere Haank Re

Man Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dharay

And this category of songs cannot be thought of without the superbly melodious “Dheeme Dheeme Gaaun, Dheere Dheere  Gaaun”.

All the above songs are already posted in the blog.  I had actually planned to do a series on ‘dheere dheere’ songs.  I also have plans for a few more such word based theme posts.   But for all these themes I am finding only newer songs.  So the series idea is dropped, will just be preparing random posts for which ever song appeals.

Here I am presenting a song which suits the theme to the ‘T’. Its from the movie ‘Aashiqui’ (1990) which is making its debut here. More than 29 years ago this movie came and the music created a storm. I personally am witness to the rage these songs were. In recent days I have been listening to the songs of this film and I am having to revise my choice of best song in the movie. This song ‘Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana” used to by my favourite and I thought this was the best. But the other songs like the title song “Saanson Ki aroorat Hai Jaise”, “Jaan-e-Jigar Jaan-e-Mann”, “Main Duniya Bhulaa Doonga”,  “Nazar Ke Saamne Jigar Ke Ppaas”, “Ab Tere Bin Jee Lenge Hum”, “Tu Meri Zindagi Hai “, “Dil Ka Aalam Ab Kya Sunaaun Tumhen” etc.  Total 9 songs all are chartbusters. At the time this movie came and songs were so popular, it was a known fact that the songs were all from the Music Bank created by T-series (Gulshan Kumar). I think Mahesh Bhatt may have got to select the songs he wanted for his film. That is the only explanation for such high quality melodious songs in one film, when films used to succeed on only one or two good songs. Such was the condition of film music, despite the ghazal already having made a big comeback in Hindi film music. All songs in a film couldn’t be ghazal recitiations like in ‘Umrao Jaan’, so the film makers were making use of the urdu ghazal selectively.

There was at least one song in the above mentioned list which is a direct lift from an existing older song.

The music of the film was by Nadeem-Shrawan, and the singers were Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. The lyrics are by Rani Malik for this song. The film had newcomers Anu Agarwal and Rahul Roy for hero and heroine, with support cast of Deepak Tijori as the friend, Reema Laagu as the mother, Tom Alter as the warden, among others.

Here is an excerpt of a review on imdb.com :

“Each and every song of this movie is timeless. Nadeem-Shravan may not be creative and experimental like A. R. Rehman, but it is true that if “melody” had a second name it would be Nadeem-Shravan. “Aashiqui”, “Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin”,”Sadak”, “Saajan”, “Deewana”, “Dil Ka Kya Qusoor”, “Salami”, “Damini”, “Dil Waale”, “Raja Hindustani”, “Jeet”, “Pardes” are examples of this genius combination. Mahesh Bhatt is one of the finest filmmakers we had, but it is sad that his biggest commercial success is probably his weakest work as a director, or probably got overshadowed by the lovable music.”

I can’t agree more with the above para. I don’t know the songs of ‘Dil Waale’ and ‘Jeet’ of the above listed films, but can add ‘Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’ and ‘Dhadkan’ which came much later, to this list. ‘Pardes’ would be the highest point or the culmination of this phenomena called Nadeem-Shrawan.

The music of this film did make a clean sweep of the Filmfare Awards of 1991

Best Music Director : Nadeem Saifi – Shravan Rathod

Best Lyricist : Sameer (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

Best Playback Singer – Male :
Kumar Sanu  (For the song “Ab Tere Bin”)

Best Playback Singer – Female :
Anuradha Paudwal  (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

This is the tally of these artists in the blog so far,

Nadeem Shrawan 15
Anuradha Paudwal 35
Kumar Sanu 22
Sameer 30

No wonder that the songs of ‘Aashiqui’ have been rehashed multiple times and reused a couple of times for ‘Aashiqui’ – 2 & 3.  I have come across very very high praise for Nadeem-Shrawan, some go to the extent of calling them SD Burman-ish.  Output wise I am inclined to agree that they were able to maintain a particular standard, which was a difficult task, given the market and commercial requirements.   As for being SDB-ish, I have found a song or two by them to be in the SDB mode.

Anyway, the songs of this movie are on their way to becoming sort of folklore/folk songs in the next century 🙂 🙂 , at the current rate and trends.

Song – Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana (Aashiqui) (1990) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics – Rani Malik, MD – Nadeem Shravan

Lyrics

dheere dheere se
meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna jaane jaana
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana

dheere dheere se
meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna
jaane jaana
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana

jab se tujhe dekha
dil ko kahin aaraam nahin
mere hothon pe ek tere siwa
koi naam nahin
apna bhi haal tumhaare jaisa
hai saajan
bas yaad tujhe karte hain
aur koyi kaam nahin
ban gayaa hoon main
teraa deewaana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaana
oo dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa

tu ne bhi aksar mujh ko jagaaya
raaton mein
aur neend churaai
meethi meethi baaton mein
tu ne bhi beshaq
mujh ko kitna tadpaaya
phir bhi teri har ek adaa pe
pyaar aaya
aa jaa aa jaa ab kaisa sharmaanaa
dheere dheere se dil ko churaana
oo dheered heere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna jaane jaanaa aa
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana
dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa

धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
ओह ….
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना

जब से तुझे देखा
दिल को कहीं आराम नहीं
मेरे होंठों पे एक तेरे सिवा
कोई नाम नहीं
अपना भी हाल तुम्हारे जैसा
है साजन
बस याद तुझे करते हैं
और कोई काम नहीं
बन गया हूँ मैं
तेरा दीवाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना

तू ने भी अक्सर मुझ को 
जगाया रातों में 
और नींद चुराई 
मीठी मीठी बातों में
तू ने भी बेशक
मुझ को कितना तड़पाया
फिर भी तेरी हर एक अदा पे
प्यार आया
आ जा आ जा अब कैसा
शरमाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
