Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 33
—————————————————————————

When I look back at 2010, the blog posting rate was surprisingly similar to the post rate of 2020. Every day one or two posts appeared during 2010. The blog clocked around 60 odd posts per month. Same is happening even in 2020.

Coming to this date 10 years ago, viz 3 june 2010, two posts were discussed in the blog as below :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tere binaa zindagi se koi shikwa nahin Aandhi (1975) All songs covered
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake

Sunahri Naagin (1963) 07 of 08 songs posted

“Sunahri Naagin-1963” was directed by Babubhai Mistry for Everest Pictures, Bombay. Its story and screenplay were by Pt Madhur and Vishwanath Pandey. Dialogues were by C K Mast. It was a fantasy movie which had Mahipal, Helen, Sulochana, Anwar Hussain, Sapru, Priti Bala aka Zeb Rehman, Ulhas, Paul Sharma, Jeevankala, Bela Bose, Madhumati, Sheela Kashmiri, Kamal Mehra etc in it.

When I was going through the above, I thought that I was going through the credits of “Parasmani”(1963). Both movies were created by the same team, and even the star cast had much in common. Mahipal was the hero in both the movies, Here in ‘Sunahri Naagin'(1963), we have Helen in female lead instead of Geetanjali.

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the seven songs covered in the blog:-

6 Yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye 15482 16-March-2020
7 Donon haathhon se dil kyun sambhaala hai 15493 24-March-2020

From the table, it can be seen that the movie made its debut in march 2010 and I discussed three songs from the movie in that month. Another song was discussed in june 2010. Then this movie was not taken up again in the blog for eight years.

This year, two songs have been discussed and one of these two songs was a Blog Ten Year Challenge song.

Today, another blog ten year challenge opportunity presents itself. On this occasion, here is this lovely song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). It is sung by Mukesh and Lata. The song is picturised on Mahipal and Helen. This song appears to be the song corresponding to Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge of “Parasmani”(1963).

Not only are the singers same in the two songs, even the lyricist 9Farooque Kaiser is the same. Parasmani had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Here Kalyanji Anandji are the music director. Though HFGK is silent about the assistant music directors, it appears to me that Laxmikant Pyarelal may have been the assistant music director in this movie. I can notice Laxmikant Pyarelal stamp in this song.

It is a lovely song to listen to. Its lyrics and details were sent jointly by Prakashchandra and Avinash Scrapwala. Prakashchandra gave valuable background information on this movie whereas Avinash Scrapwala was the catalyst behind this Blog Ten Year Challenge Post.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) are covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEEED in the blog. I notice that “Parasmani”(1963) too had been YIPPEED with its equivalent song viz Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge . Such coincidences occur in the blog all the time.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 24
———————————————–

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (Bangla film, 1959) was written and directed by Prafulla Chakraborty. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Chhabi Biswas, Anup Kumar, Chhaya Devi, Tulsi Chakraborty, Bikash Roy, Shyam Laha, Sheela Paul, Helen, Jahar Roy etc. I have watched the video of a moderately edited film on one of the video sharing platforms. Probably, the film’s VHS tape was damaged as I found some  ‘jumps’ in the continuity of the film’s story. Unfortunately, English sub-titles are not available. A short synopsis on the cover of the VCD of the film helped me to understand the film’s story in a proper perspective.

The film opens with Raja (Uttam Kumar), a small-time thief coming out of the jail and Bhola (Anup Kumar), his close associate receives Raja outside the jail. Both of them discuss the plan for a bigger heist.

One day, Mala (Sabitri Chatterjee) arrives in their neighbourhood with her father (Tulsi Chakraborty) to reside in the locality where Raja and Bhola stay.  In the first meeting with them at the time of getting down from the bus, Bhola helps Mala and her father in bringing out their belongings from the bus. But in doing so, he picks her father’s wallet. Finding his wallet missing, Raja decides to pay the fares on their behalf to impress them to be of helping nature. Within few days, Raja and Bhola became closer to Mala’s father, though Mala keeps  a distance without offending them.

Mala is the only earning member by working in the theatre. She is not aware of Raja’s real identity. He tries hard to impress her to gain her attention.  In the meantime, Gobardhan (Bikas Roy) has been trying to stalk Mala in his efforts to make her join films. She tells Raja and Bhloa about her problems with Gobardhan which results in both of them punishing him on more than one occasions. All these actions of the duo create good impression on Mala who starts liking Raja.

In line with their plan to strike something big, Raja and Bhola get acquainted with a businessman Datta (Chhabi Biswas) and impress him into lending them money for their business which does not exist. Datta gives them the financial support as well as goods with a proviso that if  they sell the goods,  he would give them concession. However, being thieves and cheaters, both of them decide neither to return the money nor the goods.

One day, Raja and Bhola are seen picking someone’s pocket in a bus in which Mala is also travelling. She comes to know the real side of Raja. She starts avoiding him. Having lost Mala, Raja decides to reform himself and becomes a changed man. He gives up pickpocketing and cheating business much against the advice of his close friend, Bhola. And then Bhola also falls in line with Raja as for him, his unimpeachable friendship with Raja is more important than his notorious vocation.

Raja approaches businessman Datta and tells him the actual truth about his activities and his love for Mala. The fact is that Datta was already aware of Raja and Bhola’s nefarious activities. He was handling with a reformist approach by testing them with financial help to start a business and become the good citizens.  Datta goes and meets Mala and asks her to forgive Raja. Raja once again regains Mala’s love and the film has a happy ending.

When I watched this film, I was getting a feeling that I was watching a Bollywood film. The story of the film was nowhere near to the quality of most of the Bangla films with strong story lines. However, to the credit of the film’s director, Prafulla Chakraborty and of the main actors like Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Anup Kumar and the veteran Chhabi Biswas, there was not much of dull moments in the film. The director ensured that Uttam Kumar and Anup Kumar in the roles of petty thieves with their light comical performances remained the likeable characters for the audience in their roles throughout the film.

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (1959) has 3 songs all of which sound like Bollywood songs insofar as musical compositions are concerned. Of the three songs, one song is in Hindi and the remaining two Bengali songs are solos sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Incidentally, Manna Dey sung for Uttam Kumar for the first time in this film in which he had also done yodelling.

I am presenting the only Hindi song in the film, “Tere Liye Aaya Hai Le Ke Koi Dil’ sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is picturised on Helen as a dance song in a  thieve’s den in which Uttam Kumar is present. The song is written by Naqsh Layallpuri. The musical score is that of Sudhin Dasgupta, the younger brother of Kamal Dasgupta. The tune of the song sounds somewhat similar to one of the Hindi film songs of the 50s which I am not able to recall. The song has  OP Nayyar style of composition.

Enjoy one more Helen song among the umpteen songs, Geeta Dutt sang for her in Hindi films.

Lyrics
(Based on Audio Version)

tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil

husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya. . .

तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल

कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
रहेगी ना फीकी

हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
कहती हैं फसाना

आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. The movie had Mahipal, Helen, Anwar, Pratibha, Sapru, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Ajit, Habib, Shyam Kumar, Ragini, Bir Sakuja, K N Singh, Sulochana, Tun Tun etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. I am sue that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the assistants in this movie seeing the resemblence in music with “Parasmani”(1963).

The song is picturised as a dance song on Helen who is seen performing for Anwar Hussain playing a royal. Among others in the picture, one can notice Edwina too, playing a maid standing silently.


Song-Donon haathhon se dil kyun sambhaala hai(Sunahri Naagin)(1963) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

bahki bahki nazar
bahke bahke kadam
bahki bahki nazar
bahki bahki nazar

daal ke munh pe zulfon ko aaye hain hum

teri mehfil mein
teri mehfil mein humse ujaala hai
teri mehfil mein humse ujaala hai
aaj lagta hai ae
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

“Baazi”(1968), not to be confused with the well known “Baazi”(1951) was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

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

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Aa mere galey lag jaa o jaane jaana 7860 9-Apr-2013
2 Pyaar ki ye baaten hamko na samjhaao 7949 21-Apr-2013
2 Ek anaar do beemaar badi mushqil hai 15143 29-July-2019
2 Dil tootaa roye nainaa 15440 17-Feb-2020

Here is the fifth and final song from “Baazi”(1968). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

This song is quite a remarkable song. It is picturised as a stage performance song on Helen and Waheeda Rehman. Helen plays evil queen and Waheeda Rehman her daughter. The evil queen regards herself as the prettiest female around and she would not hesitate to get prettier females killed, even if she happens to be her own daughter.

This is a very long song, more than ten minutes long. The picturisation also shows several small time actors as well.

I think that this song must be one of a kind for lyricist Shakeel Badayuni too. This must be one of the very few Helen dance songs for him.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung five female duets in the movies of 1968. Four of these duets are already covered in the blog. So, with this song, all the five female duets of Lata Mangeshkar from movies of 1968 are covered.

With this song, “Baazi”(1968) joins movies that have all their songs covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Main haseena naazneena (Baazi)(1968) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

This song is a Bihar -Eastern UP kind of song where dancing girls were called to perform at important occasions such as weddings etc. In the picturisation, Asha Parekh is getting married and Helen is called upon to dance on the occasion.

Helen lip syncing in Lata’s voice (instead of Asha Bhonsle) and performing a mujra kind of dance (rather than cabarat). This was perhaps the idea of the moviemaker to cast Helen in a “different” kind of role. 🙂


Song-Der na karo piya pyaare (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aa aa
aa aa
shamma hai
gul bhi hai
bulbul bhi hai
parwaana bhi
raat ki raat ye sab kuchh hai
sahar kuchh bhi nahin
der na karo o
der na karo
piya pyaare
paas aate aate tumhaare
kahin door
kahin door
kahin door na main chali jaaun
der na karo o
piya der na karo
na karo

kaahe jodi
kaahe jodi nigodi piya maine tujhse najariya
dega taana
dega taana
dega taana zamana
hansegi ye saari nagariya
ab to hadd ho gayi intzaar ki
laaj rakh lo piya mere pyar ki
ab to hadd ho gayi intzaar ki
jali jaaun
pyaar ki aag mein
piya der na karo
piya pyaare
paas aate aate tumhaare
kahin doon na main chali jaaun
der na karo o
piya der na karo
na karo

dekhoon raahen
dekhoon raahen
nigaahen bichhaa ke main saari umariyaa a
par zamaana
par zamaana
par zamaana begaana
ye mohlat na dega sanwariya
waqt ko kisne roka
kahin de jaaye na dhokha
gair ka mujhe na kar de
maang mein aag na bhar de
aane waale abhi jo na aayega
dekh lena koi jaan se jaayega
aane waale abhi jo na aayega
chhali jaaun hathhon kismat se
main na chhali jaaun
piya der na karo
piya der na karo
na karo

Hullo Atuldom

Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi” was the first time I took note of this roly-poly cute- faced actor. He played Braganza, a head-fisherman and father to ‘Bobby’ in 1973. Subsequently I saw him as mama to the character played by Hema Malini in ‘Aap Beeti’ in 1976, a pathan who helps Manoj Kumar in ‘Shor’ (1972), a sardar who was a good Samaritan in ‘Roti Kapda aur Makaan’ (1974).

Then one day on chitrahaar or it could have been chaayageet on Doordarshan I saw a black and white song “Patli Kamar Hai” where this particular actor was super good-looking which was enough to sweep the lady he was wooing, off her feet. He came across as a dancer with a reasonable sense of rhythm. That is when I was informed by my dad that Premnath was a lead actor in many movies and rattled of names like ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Baadal’ (1951), ‘Aag’ (1948) etc. and also sang a few of his songs from movies where he was the hero. Recently, not so long ago, I too saw a black-n-white movie, where Premnath played a ‘supposed’ poor boy who falls in love with a princess and helps the king regain his kingdom, the movie was an Arabian nights kind of story. Think it was ‘Saaqi’ (1952).

So I have loved movies where Premnath was Sir Juda (‘Karz’), Yamraaj (‘Lok Parlok’), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’), Bajrang Bahadur (‘Aap Beeti’), Shankar Dada (‘Dharam Karam’), father of a bevy of beauties (‘Ishk Ishk Ishk’, and the most memorable of them all – Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh in ‘Johnny Mera Naam’.  Thinking of him today on his birth anniversary he would have been 93.

There is another celeb of yesteryears who has her birthday today. And I wrote a post for her last month itself where I wrote this “I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 October 2019).’’ God only knows what I was thinking as I wrote that post and sent it hurriedly to Atul ji for posting. And the good man that he is, he posted it within an hour of my sending it. But the error was pointed out in the comments section by Partha Chanda ji and Prakashchandra ji. The next day Nahm ji, after reading the comments, messaged me to inquire if I was planning one more post for the actual birthdate and also to see if the song choices were clashing. I assured her that the choices don’t clash as we have a vast library to choose from.  I must say that we had an extra song and extra good wishes for our much-loved Helen.

As my practice has been over the years, I have managed to find a song which features both the birthday celebs. It is from the 1979 release ‘Magroor’’ which starred Shatrughan Sinha, Vidya Sinha, Premnath, Helen, Deven Verma, Nadira, Narendranath, Paintal, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Jagdish Raj etc. The film had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics. Playback singers were Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Anuradha Paudwal, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mahendra Kapoor. All the 5 songs were duets.

Todays’ song is a club song where we see Helen (Rukhsaana) being wooed by a bunch of suitors (extras) and Premnath joining in on the fun. He is bodily lifted out of the dance floor by the cops at the end of the song. Playback for this song is by Asha and Mannada.

Blog Day : 4143 Post No. : 15307

My stint as a post writer for the blog started with this song from the film “Gumnaam”. This was a Helen song, and I chose it as the song for my first post in the blog for no particular reason. Maybe it was not yet posted in the blog was the only trigger, apart from my husband suggesting it.

Another remarkable thing about my first posts was that, it got posted within a few hours of sending the mail. There were very few outside contributors who were writing posts back than in 2012, could have been one of the factors in being given such priority treatment 🙂 . Guest posters were few and lyrics contributors were many. I was one of the early song lyric contributors. Those were very heady days of finding known, much loved songs not yet posted in the blog. I remember with fondness, sending lyrics of some of my all-time favourite songs like “ ab to hai tum se har khushi apni” from “Abhimaan” and the hauntingly beautiful rendition of ‘hai tere saathh meri wafaa” from “Hindustan ki Qasam”.

Now I am a veteran of 302 lyrics and 243 posts, at last count. Lyrics contribution has stopped for obvious reason that, if I can write posts also that why would somebody else want to write them for the songs which I want posted in the blog. Sometimes I think, I should go back to sending lyrics contributions, also for no particular reason. You see random thought in the mind don’t necessarily have to be for a reason or logic.

Similar way my posts are written straight from the heart and not with too much deliberations. Though at times they may seem so, if I quote some poems and my own ‘essay’s. There have been a few posts by me which had on length discussions (my own seesaw of thoughts – if they can be called discussions) not related in anyway to the songs accompanying the posts. Some of the posts were direct from the heart and reflected my feelings, impressions etc. No matter what I have enjoyed my experience here, much misunderstood and all. I feel that language can only be source of communication, which is one dimensional only.

Going back to my first post – A Helen song. Helen Anne Richardson Khan (born Helen Anne Richardson on 21 November 1938), best known as Helen. She is turning 81 on 21st November, 2019, and this is posts to celebrate her persona and her contribution in her chosen field. Having stated this there is not much about ‘Helen’ I will be writing.

In the post (My first post) I had this to say about the film ‘Khaamoshi”(1996):

‘Not that have anything against Jatin-Lalit, in fact their score for ‘Khaamoshi – The Musical ” is one of my few favourites in this two decades. The other day, I looked up the songs of this film, solely for the Helen song “Gaate thhe pehle akele aaj gaata hai saara jahaan”, trying to find a better alternative to this song from “Gumnaam” which I am supposed to discuss. Yeh dil sun rahaa hai, mausam ki sargam ko sun, jaana suno ham tum pe marte hain, hayya haaya ho let it let let it go, and aaj main uper aasman neeche are all competing for the best song of the film(Khaamoshi-The Musical).’

Having said this much about the film in the post, I have so far managed to post only one song. So I have chosen a “Helen” song with a difference from this film as this birthday post.

In this song, Helen playing the matriarch of a Goan family, ‘Mariamma’ in the film is trying to make the best of the situation where ‘A Piano’ being family heirloom is sold to the local antique collector, Raghuvir Yadav. The Piano is maybe last thing remaining which belonged Mariamma’s husband and her link with him. As the Piano is taken away, there is procession of villagers singing and dancing, Mariamma is a part of it with her grandchildren. The Piano is finally taken away abroad a ferry, and she cannot follow it anymore. She has tried her best to mollify the children that all is not lost and those things which are lost, eventually comeback. As the song ends, Mariamma is also seen going beyond the horizon. That’s the end of the ‘Mariamma too in the film.

The singers are Kavita Krishnamoorthy, Shradha and Khusnum. The later two are new names for the blog, who sing for the kids. There is a lot of chorus and unique composition in its own way. Jatil-Lalit are the composers and Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist of this beautiful song. Helen as the Anglo-Indian elderly widow in the black and white dress, made a charming grandmother in the film. With her demise, Annie’s(Manisha Koirala) child hood is also over. The film, if the readers have not seen it, is to be recommended for any student of cinema. The reasons of this recommendation are many, and songs also is one of the reasons.

The audio version and the film version are the same, but both links are given, just that we can hear the song twice, if seen only once. Again.

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.


Song-Sab kuchh to hai sab kuchh toh thha(Josh)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum

sab kuchh toh hai

Blog Day : 4060 Post No. : 15193

“Zindagi”(1964) was written produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini Productions, Madras. This movie had Raj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Vyjayanthimala, Helen, Mehmood, Prithviraj Chauhan, Jeevan, Dhumal, Jayant, Kanhaiyalal, Hiralal, Master Shahid, Leela Chitnis, Pushpavalli(Actress Rekha`s mother), Baby Farida & “Honey”, Mumtaz Begum, Moolchand, Nirupa Roy, Satyajeet etc in it.

The movie had 13 songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (30 august 2019) is the 96th birth anniversary of Shailendra (30 august 1923 -14 december 1966). Shailendra would have been 96 today. I know of at least one person senior to Shailendra in age who is still around. Sadly Shailendra left us at a tender age of 43.

In such a brief duration of 43 years, he had a 17 years long career as a lyricist in HFGK. His literary output during this period was enough to establish himself as an all time great lyricist in the annals of HFM.

Shailendra penned around 760 songs in HFM. This blog has as many as 676 of his songs. So only around 80 odd Shalendra songs are left to be covered in the blog.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Shailendra, here is a song from “Zindagi”(1964). This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised as a “god bharaai rasm” song. Picturisation shows a would be mother played by Vyjyanti Mala, surrounded by ladies viz. Leela Chitnis, Mumtaz Begum and others while Helen (who rather unusually for her is seen clad in a saari)lip syncs this song.
