Hullo to all in Atuldom

People talk about the rich voice quality that Amitabh Bachchan has – the baritone etc. But has it occurred to anyone that there are and were and will be other actors who have or had similar voice? One such voice was that of Mogambo. There are tales that tell how the makers of “Mr. India” went from Danny to Amjad Khan to any other known faces of that era to play the character of Mogambo. Each one had his own reason for not taking up that character and eventually Amrish Puri ended up being The Mogambo and now it is impossible to even imagine any other person as Mogambo. I am unable to distinguish the man from the character and part of the power in the role was the voice of the actor.

No other month begins with a day that is named after itself.  It is only the month of May that starts with a day that is called May Day.  Historically, this specific day has a long history of cultural and social significance.  A history that goes back to pre-Christ era.  The Romans used to celebrate this day as a spring festival.  The festival was called Floralia, in the honor of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  Further north, in Germany, this day was celebrated as Walburgis Night.  Coinciding with the arrival of summer weather in the European continent, this day was also celebrated as the first day of summer in some regions.  Community fairs were held, with the traditional dancing around the Maypole, and the beauty contest to select and crown the ‘Queen of May’.  People used to distribute anonymous gifts, called May Baskets, in their neighborhoods.

Its been about a month since I last sent any write-up to Atul. (I remember the last thing I did was send the lyrics of a song to Atul and Sudhirji for Sanjeev Kumar death anniversary). Not that I was short of ideas. It is just that various factors contributed to keeping me away from the blog. I have more than a month’s posts to catch up with. First it was diwali. Then my dearest niece’s engagement which took me to Chennai for a weekend. (Actually I had thought I will be able to call up our YYIIPPEEEE!!!! master when I was in his land but that also didn’t materialize. Sorry YYIIPPEEEE!!!! Master)

The title in the beginning of the 1982 film ‘Ramnagari’, mentions ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee presents ‘Akar films’ Ramnagari’.

Avinash Scrapwala is one of the “newer” contributors to the blog. He seems to have discovered the blog in june 2011 but decided to become a lyrics contributor only in late august 2012. His first lyrics contribution that appeared in the blog was Pyaar ka badla mujhe dekho kaisa mila (Ye Hai Zindagi)(1977). This song was a nice song containing the old world message of being content with one’s fate and staying humble despite becoming successful. If one looks at the lyrics contributions of Avinash Scrapwala, a good number of these songs are philosophical songs, inspirational songs, songs with a message etc. -feel good songs in brief that have a therapeutic effect on the listeners- what I also call “mental massage” songs. 🙂

Today (19 september 2012) is Ganesh Chaturthi, a major Indian festival. Today Lord Ganesh’s birthday is celebrated. In Indian calender, Lord Ganesh’s festival comes first and the festivals involving other Gods come then follow during the year. In fact, “Sriganesh karna” has become a Hindi language idiom which means “to begin”.

The film Sapnay(1997), was dubbed from a TeleguTamil Film named “minsaara Kanavu”. I found this while looking for information about the story etc. here. I have seen this movie, maybe once or maybe in parts. I remembered a part of the story and songs, which were very melodious. The song “Chanda re chanda re” is a favourite with me for many reasons. First is the melody, which makes it such a hummable song. I especially like the interlude music, which makes Kajol respond and start singing with Prabhu Deva. And the way it is picturized next to an ‘urban pond’ with slum dwellers living around it. And the most important factor of all is Prabhu Deva’s choreography and dance, and the non-serious way he is treating the whole thing. I am guessing Prabhu Deva is the choreographer here, as he is a choreographer first than a dancer, then an actor turned action director to full fledge Film Director, when last heard.

I am aware of “Sharaarat” (1959) as well as “Sharaarat”(1972). These two movies have great music by Shankar Jaikishan and Ganesh respectively.
