Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)-Song No. 12
———————————————–

“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. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

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

Been na bajaana jaadu na jagaanaa (Sunahri Naagin) 12 march 2010
Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon (Sunahri Naagin) 14 march 2010
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin) 16 march 2010
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake (Sunahri Naagin) 3 june 2010
Main to ho gayi re badnaam (Sunahri Naagin) 16 july 2018

As can be noticed, this movie made its debut in the blog on 12 march 2010. Next two songs from the movie were discussed on 14 march 2010 and 16 march 2010. So, a song from this movie was covered on this day ten years ago !

So the movie becomes a candidate for Blog Ten year challenge !

Ten years ago, the daily output of the blog was as low as it is in the present. Nowadays we are plodding along at barely one song a day. Those days, barely one song or two a day were often punctuated by spells of DOT days.

The reason for such slow output was that I was transferred from Jabalpur to Nagpur (in december 2009) and the entire process took upto end of february 2010. During this time I was living a nomad’s life and posting articles was a struggle.

Nevertheless, I was on the verge of settling down, and I had started to post two songs daily by March 2010. Following two songs were covered on this day ten years ago:-

Song Posted On
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin)(1963) 16 march 2010
Dil le ke jaate ho kahaan(O Tera Kya Kehna)(1959) 16 march 2010

“O Tera Kya Kehna”(1959) has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”, here is a synchronised dance song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). The song is sung by Lata and Kamal Barot. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandjui.

Resemblence of this song to “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) is no coincidence. Both movies were directed by the same director (Babubhai Mistry) and written by the same screenplay writers (Pandit Madhur and Vishwanat Pandey). Both movies had Mahipal as the hero. This song in fact has the same tune. This song could be described as the equivalent song of “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) in this movie. I am sure that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the composer of this tune (like that of “Parasmani”) as assistants to Kalyanji Anandji. Lyricist differs though. Here is in Indeewar. In “nooraani” song it was Asad Bhopali.

It is just a quirk of fate that “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” assumed cult status, while this song did not become that well known.

One of the dancers is Helen. I am unable to identify the other dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation.

PS-Prakashchandra, our inhouse face recognition expert tells us that the dancers are Madhumati (Helen look alike) and Bela Bose. Occupants of the Raj darbaar throne are Anwar Hussain and Zeb Rahman (aka Preeti Bala).

Lyrics

yoon na akadiye
yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye
yooon na bigadiye ho ho
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

chaahe jitna bacho
chaahe kitna daro
aji aankhon ka jaadu chalega
chaahe gussa karo chaahe shikwa karo
aji dil to kisi din jalega
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
hosh ud jaayega mere sarkaar ka
yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

laakh tan ke chalo
laakh ban ke chalo

nazren to mil ke rahengi
honth daabe raho chaahe kuchh na kaho
aji aankhen to sab kuchh kahengi
oonche sar jhuk gaye
kaafile ruk gaye
oonche sar jhuk gaye
kaafile ruk gaye
jaadu dekha nahin aji deedaar ka
yoon na akadiye
yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

aaj jiski ada nahin janchti zara
aji kal dil ko bhaane lagega
jiske haalaat par nahin karte nazar
aji pal bhar mein aane lagega
ye ajab hai jahaan sab hai mumkin yahaan
ye ajab hai jahaan sab hai mumkin yahaan
dil badalta hai pal bhar mein dildaar ka
yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

Blog Day :

4245 Post No. : 15464 Movie Count :

4261

Today’s song is from an obscure film – Namak-47. Not only the film title was obscure but even the production House, the Director and even most of the cast too was practically unknown.

And no wonder. 1947 was an year which saw India’s Partition on religion basis. Pakistan was created and there was a stream of film people wanting to migrate. By the beginning of 1947 itself it was clear that there would be a Partition and those of the film industry who wanted to migrate, were in a great hurry to finish off their projects on hand at any cost before the D Day. Investors and artistes of various fields in film making tried their best to complete their films somehow. In this melee, quality of films became the casualty in most such cases, where migration hungry people were involved. This resulted in an unusually high number of films being completed and censored. The year 1947 recorded the maximum number of films – 181, since films were made. This record remained till 1988 when 185 Hindi films were made. So this record stood for 57 years !

This also reflected in the cast of several films, where to fill up vacancies, actors were recruited thoughtlessly. Most such excess people never appeared in films again ever. Film Namak was an example . The film was directed by Balwant B. Dave. He was actually a Cameraman. With the help of an investor S H Torani, he floated a Production company, Azad Pictures to produce film Namak. He also became a director of this film. It is another matter that this Production Company got dissolved after this one film, but Balwant Dave directed 3 more films – White face-48, Shahi Bazar-57 and Gogola-66. This Azad Pictures had even announced 2 more films, namely Kasturba and Voice of India. These ofcourse remained only on paper.

Similarly, the Music Directors were Shyam Babu Pathak and one Naresh Chandra. Though Pathak was an established composer, who remained active many years thereafter, Naresh Chandra was never heard again. Naresh Chandra even sang a song in this film. I have heard his song in this film and wondered who taught him singing. Looks like he went for recording straight from his bathroom !

The cast of film Namak-47 consisted of Dulari, Bhim, Dilawar, Habib, Neelam, Sharda, Chandrashekhar, and Sugandha. The names of Bhim, Sharada, Chandrashekhar and Sugandha were never heard by me after this film. The lead actress Dulari was a comparatively new one. having worked in small roles hetherto, this film was her first film as a Heroine. Earlier in film Adab Arz-43, she had played a side Heroine and the love interest of Mukesh. The Lyricist was Indivar and there were 5 songs in this film- 4 of them composed by Pathak and 1 by Naresh Chandra, the song being sung by him only. For 5 songs a total of 7 singers were used, out of which 4 were New names. These were, Anika Rizvi,Shabnam Hussaini, Naresh Chandra and R P Sharma. These four singers’ names were not heard by me earlier and never later also. They proved to be One time performers only, as far as I know.

In the cast there were two names, which were a part of “Same name Confusion” list. Those names are Heroine Dulari and singer Leela Mehta. Many times, I wondered why same names were used in the film industry at all ? Names like Nalini and Leela could be counted in as many as 5 to 6 artistes. My observation is , whenever the artistes used their Surnames along with own names, there was no confusion. A case in point is name ‘Leela’.

There were following Leelas in film industry…
Leela Chitnis
Leela Chandragiri or Pendharkar,
Leela Mishra
Leela Sawant and
Leela Mehta.

Similarly, there were Shanta Patel, Shanta Mujumdar, Shanta Apte, Shanta Hublikar and many such examples. Since Maharashtriyan actresses were keen on using their Surnames, they were hardly a part of SNC, with the exception of Leelas. Leela Desai and Leela Chandragiri were actresses who operated in same periods in films. Generally, their names were credited full. However some films listed their names as simply, Leela or Miss Leela. In case of Leela Chandragiri , she was listed variously as Leela, Miss Leela, Leela Chandragiri or Leela Pendharkar. This caused lot of confusion in updating their filmographies.

In film Namak-47, the singer was Leela Mehta. Luckily she was essentially a singer, except for one Hindi film-Shri Ram Avatar-50, in which she had acted also.Since she was almost always credited as Leela Mehta, she was not a part of any SNC. Thank God !

Daughter of Kanhaiyalal Mehta and Indumati, Leela was born on 10-12-1935 at Borivali in Bombay. She was elder of the two sisters. Due to loss in business, her family shifted first to Ahmedabad and later to Baroda, where they settled. Leela studied in Marathi medium school- New Era Vidyalay in Baroda. Leela participated in all functions of the school and acted in dramas, much to the annoyance of their social circle. She developed interest in singing after listening to songs by Khursheed and Kananbala. She started learning music despite the resistance from home and others in their society.

V.M.Vyas, the famous Director and a family friend knew about her interest and offered her main role in film Ranak Devi-46. She was just 11 year old and did not suit the role, but she was given another role in it. Kokila Balsara aka Nirupa Roy too acted in it as a Debut film.

Due to her father’s death, the family shifted to Bombay and Leela took the responsibility of being the bread earner by acting and singing in dramas and Radio plays. Meanwhile she learnt further music from Prof. Surendra Rao. She started acting and singing in Gujarati films. Ranjit Movietone offered her a big role in film Gunsundari-48, but since the role needed her to put on a Sleeveless Blouse, she refused that role. Finally, it went to Dulari. She, however sang songs in that film and they became quite popular in Gujarat.

Leela Mehta had grown up in Marathi atmosphere and also was educated in Marathi Medium, so her Marathi was very good. She was invited to work in Marathi dramas. She did roles in famous and popular Marathi dramas and also sang songs. From 1950 onwards, she started acting in Gujarati dramas. Meanwhile she used to sing in Hindi films occasionally. In early 50s, she mad very successful foreign trips with her troupe, to do Gujarati dramas and singing concerts.

Inspite of being successful and acting and singing in Marathi, Hindi and Gujarati films and dramas, her father did not see even one show of hers. This pained her till end. leela stayed in a Bungalow in Versova in Bombay. Once it was rumoured that there was a Ghost in it, she immediately left that house and shifted to Dadar. Inadvertently, she forgot to inform the industry about her change of address, and this diminished her demand drastically.

Her mother died in 1972. In 1982, she toured USA. In 1985, the Marathi Natya Parishad honoured her with a cash award. Till 1992, she acted in Marathi and Gujarati TV serials. In all, Leela acted in 300 Gujarati/Marathi dramas, films and serials. Leela was bedridden and unable to speak also.Her house was demolished. She was under the care of a close relative, Nitin Dahisariya. Finally, the news came that Leela Mehta expired in September 2019.

Leela Mehta acted in only one Hindi film- Shri Ram Avatar-50. She sang 17 songs in 9 Hindi films, including 2 Unreleased films.
Her Films are Nai Kahani-43 ( 2 songs), Gaurav-47 (1), Namak-47 (1), Pehli Pehchan-47 (2), Gunsundari-48(2), Satyawan Savitri-48..No information, Chocolate-50..No information, Shri Ram Avatar-50 (4) and Hanste Rehna-50 (1). Her unreleased films were, Apradh-48 (3) and Bidhata-48 (1).

The other Same name was that of Dulari. There was one more Dulari, since the silent days into the Talkie, but luckily the Sr. Dulari stopped working much before this Dulari entered films, hence there was no SNC.

The Senior Dulari was in silent films starting with film “Poona Raided”-1924, made by Deccan pictures Corpn,Bombay. She acted opposite Vishnupant Pagnis ( who became famous in the Prabhat Talkie film “Sant Tukaram”-1936 and won award in Venice Festival). The silent films were made till 1934. She continued acting in the silent films and when Talkie films started she did act in few Talkie films too. There is a record that she acted in 11 Talkie films. Her last film was Laylo Nihar-1936. Then there is no trace of her.

The Junior Dulari was born as Ambika Vithalrao Gautam, on 18-4-1928 at Nagpur. Her father was in P and T dept. She was called first as Rajdulari and later only Dulari remained. She had 2 younger brothers. Father left P and T job,and joined “Alfred – Khatau” drama company. They shifted to Bombay in 1939.

She started films with Jhoola in 1941. In “Adab Arz”-43, she was the love interest of Mukesh. In film Paapi-53, she was Raj kapoor’s second heroine. In film Namak-47, she first became a Heroine.
Lee
She got married to Sound Recordist Jagannath Jagtap in 1951. They had one daughter. He died in 1972.
She acted in 171 Hindi, 35 Gujarati and 3 Marathi and 1 Rajasthani film till last film Ziddi-1997.

She died on 19-1-2013 at Pune.

I have not seen this film. I saw few advertisements of this film in some old issues of Film India magazine. According to the ads, the film was a social thriller and Dulari played a Christian Convert in this film. The dialogues were by Pt. Anuj.

With today’s song, film Namak-47 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 9
——————————————————————————

We have two movies that qualify to be covered Under the ‘Blog Ten Year challenge 2010-2020’ today (26 february 2020). One is the ‘1958’ movie ‘Chaubees Ghante’ and the other movie is from the ‘Seventies’ i.e. ‘Ahsaas-1979’.

‘Ahsaas’ was released in ‘1979’ that is when I was above eleven years old. Since the movie was released with ‘restricted viewing’ means we had no chance of watching and discussing this movie among out not yet adult friend circle.

One song from this movie was frequently played on radio and had also make its mark in the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ (it ranked eighteenth in the annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1980). Unlike the movie, its songs were not deemed restricted for adult listening. So listened to this song a lot. This song was the main reason why I and others adolescents like me remembered the name of this movie. That song was ‘sapnon ke shahar ham banaayenge ghar’. I think that this this was the only popular song from this movie at that time.

‘Ahsaas-1979’ was directed by S.K. Suri for ‘Sippy Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. S.K. Suri or Surendra Suri also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. It was produced by G.P. Sippy.

(Atul ji has mentioned in his post here that this movie from the Sippy’s came in between ‘Sholay-1975’ and ‘Shaan-1980’. But with newcomers and also with a new music team).

The cast of ‘Ahsaas’ include the new comers Dina, Parvez, Rakesh Bedi, Kiran Vairale, Sahil and Rita Rani Kaul.

This movie had special appearances of Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Simmi, Bindiya Goswami, Bindu, Simple Kapadia and Amjad Khan.

The other supporting cast include Chand Usmani, Leela Mishra, Sunder, Mohan Sheri, Asha Potdar, Arun Desai, Deepak, Raj, Sanjay Kaushik, Ashok Junior, K.S. Deshpande and Dina Nath.

M.S. Shinde was the editor of this movie (He was also the editor of ‘Sholay-1975’).

Dialogues of this movie were written by Suraj Sanim.

This movie had six songs written by Indeevar (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1979.

So far four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

During the preparation of this post I also listened to other songs from this movie. I had not paid attention to them earlier though I might have heard them earlier. I discovered that the other songs are also good, particularly today’s song which appears familiar. Among other songs the first song of the movie which starts with the title is also a nice one and seems to be inspired from ‘ye dosti ham nahin todenge’ (the music is nice but may be the song didn’t get much attention since the movie didn’t go well with the audiences).

Coming back to the songs posted on the blog ten years back, three songs were discussed on that day :-

Blog Day : 4202 Post No. : 15388

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 3
——————————————————————————

Under the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ today’s movie is ‘Kalaakaar-1983’.

This movie is completing full cycle of ten years today on the blog with only one of its songs posted on the blog so far. The song already posted on the blog i.e. ‘Neele Neele Ambar Par Chaand Jab Aaye’ was the most popular song from this movie.

In 1983, I was studying in 11th standard. I remember the above-mentioned song particularly as that song could be heard wherever you passed by (specifically the Kishore Kumar version), either on radio or tape-recorders in shops/hotels. I didn’t like it too much then and it was very irritating to have it playing around every time.

I was under the impression that this song topped the charts then, but when I checked the ‘Binaca Geetmala annual list’ during the preparation of this post, I was surprised to note that this song didn’t appear in the 1983 list where ‘Shaayad Meri Shaadi Ka Khayaal’ from ‘Souten’ was the topper. This may be because the movie ‘Kalaakaar’ must have been released at the end of that year 1983.

However, the above song appeared in the 1984 ‘Binaca Geetmala annual list’ and ranked at number 22 as per information available online.

Coming back to today’s post, I am presenting another good song from this movie which I think was also somewhat popular song. One more song from the movie that I remember ‘Khoye khoye rahe teri chaahon mein’ was a nice song too.

Today’s song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Suresh Wadkar.

Ten years back on this day only two movies were represented on the blog;
(here they are in ascending order)

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Teri nazar mein main rahoon Band Master – 1963 All songs covered on the blog (4/4)

Incidentally there are three movies with same title viz ‘Kalaakaar’ – whic were released in 1942, 1954 & 1983 – that are represented on the blog so far. Each of these three movies are one s represented by just one song each in the blog.

The picturization of the song happens to be in music studio while recording for a song where Kunal Goswami is lip syncing in Suresh Wadkar’s voice with a female artist (I am unable to identify her though she seems to be a familiar face) lip syncing in Anuradha Paudwal’s voice. Sridevi is also seen in the picturization of the song with other artists present in the recording studio shown in this song.

Duniya mein do premi
Milne hi nahin paate hain ae

मेरा प्यार मुझसे रूठा

दुनिया में दो प्रेमी ई
मिलने ही नहीं पातें हैं

Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable (II) – Song No. 15
———————————————————————–
It is very much true even today that the title of ‘Sone ki chidiya” suits India very well. This guileless person, named Mohammad Rafi is one of the genuine golden feathers of this ‘Sone ki Chidiya”

“Sona” in material terms as we all know is Gold, as in precious metal. And in our country traditionally and religiously Gold is treated as Goddess Laxmi. Other cultures in the world treat it as a precious metal and metal alone. But we in india have been revering “Gold” as much more than a costly metal. It is equated with wealth and prosperity. If a percentage of the country’s household are super rich, a bigger percentage of households are comprising of the so called middle classes and all of these people have amassed gold reserves in the families. I have seen women, mostly housewives saving up to buy gold jewelry. My own mother used to save up to years, so that she could get some small gold jewellery pieces. My mother’s savings habit has saved many a rainy day, if we believe the stories she tells of this event or that event. Many times the relatives will be in trouble and some or the other need will arise in the household and her savings or even gold jewellery was the only thing to be cashed.

It boggles the imagination to ascertain the quantum of gold stashed away in small or minute holdings even, over crores of households. And most of it will hopefully be useful in their hours of need. If a small token of wealth is not useful in saving a life or a way of paying a child’s school fees, than it is not ‘laxmi’, not really.

Southern India and it’s cultural make up is famous for flaunting its obsession with gold. Temples and shrines all over the country are reportedly laden with gold and jewelry, naturally donated by the devotees.

Since ancient times, the regions of present day india were part of the larger region broadly known as ‘Hind’ or ‘Hindustan’. This region is sometimes described as ‘sone ki chidiya’ in legends and ‘daastaan’. By now even if it has broken into many pieces and fragments, with conflict and strife spread over the whole region, with malice towards one and all, inside these fragmented nation states and elsewhere, it is worth reminding ourselves of the history and cultural heritage of our ancestors. A sense of preservation needs to prevail in our collective deeds, if this flourishing civilized society, invaded for centuries on end, and yet surviving all trials and tribulations, because of its thinkers, philosophers, poets, musicians and sant mahatma’s, is to continue the journey into eternity. Languages, arts and cultural values and music has always been the backbone of this heritage.

Some months ago I had written one article in hindi titled “sone ki chidiya” for the office magazine. I am including that article here for the readers benefit and contemplation.

– सोने की चिड़िया –
मकानी हूँ के आज़ाद –ए-मकां हूँ
जहां में हूँ के ख़ुद सारा जहाँ हूँ
वो अपनी लामकानी में रहें मस्त
मुझे इतना बता दें मैं कहाँ हूँ
कुछ दिन पहले मैं अपनी बहन के साथ एक मॉल में गयी । वहाँ घूमते हुए और दुकानों की चकाचौंध देखते हुए अचानक मेरी बहन जो वर्षों से गल्फ में बसी है, कहने लगी की यह बात बहुत उपयुक्त है की यह देश पिछले दो से तीन सौ सालों में दोबारा से ‘सोने की चिड़िया’ बन गया।
प्राचीन काल में हमारा भारत देश सोने की चिड़िया के नाम से मशहूर था यह सब तो हम ने किताबों में बचपन से पढ़ा है। यही वजह थी की हजारों सालों से इस सर – ज़मीन पर विदेशी हुकमुरानों ने बार बार आक्रमण किए । कुछ लोगों ने लूट मार की तो कुछ लोगों ने यहां की तहजीब में रच बस कर इसे और निखारा और संवारा और इस धरती का ‘सोने की चिड़िया’ खिताब को सदियों से बने रहने में अपनी अपनी भूमिका निभाई।

यह भी सम्झना आवश्यक है की ये वो ज़माना था जब सब तरफ ‘ माइट इस राइट ‘ का चलन था , जो कोई भी अपनी भारी भरकम सेना ले कर किसी दूसरे के राज्य पे आक्रमण कर फतेह कर ले वो राज्य उस का हो गया । और इस तरह इस फतेह किए हुए राज्याओं पर राज्य बनाए रखने के लिए ‘फ़िज़िकल माइट’ का बहुत महत्व होता था ।

ऊपर मैंने आक्रमण करने वाले हुकमूरानों के संदर्भ में न चाहते हुए या यूं कहें की बड़ा हिचकिचाते हुए विदेशी शब्द का प्रयोग किया। उस काल में तो हर क्षेत्र के लोग अपने आस पास के इलाक़ो के बाहर हर जगह को विदेश ही समझते होंगे । जबकि यह देश और विदेश की कल्पना उन्नीसवी / बीसवीं सदी में ही जागृत हो कर पूरे विश्व में फैल गयी और एक प्रकार का विभाजन हुआ और अलग अलग ‘nation states’ का चलन चला, चल क्या निकला , पूरा विश्व छोटे छोटे टुकड़ों में बट गया। कहीं मज़हब, कहीं भाषा, कहीं संस्कृति तो कहीं कुछ और, हर एक मुल्क अपनी अपनी सीमाओं में बंद हो गया । यह कैसा सोचों का, विचारों को, नदियों का, हवाओं का, पहाड़ों का, खेतों का, शहराहों का, शहर-क़स्बों का, तंग घाटियों का, द्वीपों का, क़िस्से कहानियों का, गीतों और रागों का, और जाने क्या क्या कुछ….. बटवारा हो गया । साथ ही बंटवारा हुआ प्राकृतिक संसाधनों का और कुदरत की दी हुई बेशुमार नयमतों का । बट गईं मानवता की धार्णएं और 21वी सदी में तो ऐसा लगता है की यह धरनाएं सिर्फ किताबों में सीमित हैं। पिछले युग के राजे महाराजे अपनी ताक़त के बल बूते राज्य करते और आज भी नेशन स्टेट्स अपना ‘पॉलिटिकल माइट ‘ इस्तेमाल कर न सिर्फ स्टेट पर बल्कि दूसरे स्टेट्स की प्रकृतिक संसाधनों पर भी अपना नियंत्रण बनाते हैं और उसे बनाए रखने के लिए हर एक मानव्य/अमानव्य हत्यारों का इस्तेमाल करने से बिलकुल संकोच नहीं करते। और इसी से ज़मीर के साथ conflict वाली स्टीथि भी है की जो कोई कार्य या विचार धारणा मेरे लिए सही है तो वही सोच और धारणा दूसरे के लिए गलत है । मुझे नहीं लगता की इस सृष्टि की रचना का उद्देश्य यह होगा की मानविक समाज इस तरह देशों, प्रान्तों ,भाषाओं और इन सब के प्रेम की आड़ में अपने अपने अहंकारों की, आत्महित के दायरे में, और चक्रव्युह में फंस कर, एक दूसरे से सदैव संघर्ष और तुछ लड़ाईयाँ लड़ता रहे। क्यूंकी आज भी जब हम आपस के संघर्ष को , अपने नजरियों का दायरा बड़ा कर के देखें तो यह सब तुछ ही हैं।
आज मानवता पूरी तरह से बटी हुई है । यह वो मनुष्य जाति है जो इस ब्रह्माण्ड में ईश्वर की सर्वश्रेष्ठ रचना है । सारी की सारी रचनाओं में सर्वश्रेष्ठ होना क्या होता है ये शायद हम मनुष्यों को रास न आया।

ऐसी अंतर्राश्त्र्य अनुशासन तथा सामाजिक तंत्र के चलते किसी एक व्यक्ति, कोन्सोर्टिउम, कॉर्पोरेट, या व्यवस्था या कोई नेशन-स्टेट को सोने की चिड़िया बने रहने में जो मनव्य मूल्यों के त्याग की आवश्यकता थी वो तो हमारी अर्थव्यवस्था कर ही चुकी है और इस की मानवता ने भारी क़ीमत भी चुकाई है और चुका रहें हैं हम सब ही व्यक्तिगत सतह पर। सिर्फ यह है की इस क्षति का और उस के परिणामों का आभास कुछ ही लोग कर पा रहे हैं।

एक और अनुभव जो पिछले कुछ महीनों में मुझे छू गया , उस का विवरण यहाँ करना उपयुक्त है।

मैं मुंबईकर हूँ और यही पली बढ़ी होने के कारण मुझे यहाँ के विद्यालयों के प्रति लगाव है। मेरे माता पिता के बाकी परिवार के सभी लोग बेलगाम (कर्नाटक) में रचे बसे हैं और हर तरफ फैल गए हैं। मेरे छोटे मामा के बेटे ने कुछ वर्ष पूर्व बेलगाम से पढ़ाई पूरी की थी, और नेत्र विशेषज्ञ के रूप में केरल में प्रशिक्षण कर रहा है। मैं ने उसे फोन किया यह पुछने की मैं मेरे बेटे के लिए मुंबई के अलावा कौन से कॉलेज में प्रवेश को प्राथमिकता दूँ। सारी औपचारिकताएँ समाप्त होते ही मैं ने मुद्दे की बात छेड़ दी । मेरी सारी बात सुनते ही पहली बात जो मेरे ममेरे भाई ने कही वो यह थी की आप अपने बेटे को बेलगाम में क्यूँ नहीं दाखिला दिलाते? मैं इस प्रश्न को सुन परेशान हो उठी, की यह सवाल मेरे दिल-ओ-दिमाग में दूर दूर तक नहीं आया। मैं ने अपने लहजे के पूरे आश्चर्य को बिलकुल भी न छिपाते हुए कहा की मुंबई और महाराष्ट्र में इतने अच्छे और नामचीन कॉलेज के होते हुए भी मैं मेरे बेटे के लिए बेलगाम का कॉलेज क्यूँ चुनुंगी । पर वो तो बिलकुल भी प्रभावित न हुआ मेरी बात से और अपने बिन्दु पर टिका रहा और कहा “क्यूँ बेलगाम की जीएमसी तो कर्नाटक के चोटी के 3 कॉलेज में है अच्छे कॉलेज की शिक्षा से काफ़ी फर्क पड़ता है “ । मैं ने कहा की ऐसा होगा लेकिन जब मैं मुंबई निवासी हूँ और यहाँ के 5 में से 4 कॉलेज पूरे देश की किसी भी सूची में चोटी के पंद्रह या बीस के अंदर ही आती हैं तो बेलगाम के कॉलेज के बारे मुझे विचार की भी आवश्यकता नहीं लगती।

इतनी बातचित के बाद भी मेरा ममेरा भाई मेरे दृष्टिकोण को नहीं समझ पा रहा था, तो अंत में मैं ने उस से कह दिया के वो अपने मित्र मण्डल में जो की महाराष्ट्र में पढे हैं उन से सलाह कर के मुझे यहां के कॉलेज की आपस में श्रेणी की सही सही जानकारी दे दे ताकि मेरे बेटे को उस के श्रेणी के अनुकूल मुंबई या मुंबई के बाहर के कॉलेज में प्रवेश मिल सके।

इस वार्तालाप के बाद मैं सोच में पड़ गयी कि वो एक चिकित्सीय व्यवसायिक होने के बावजूद क्यूँ नहीं समझ पा रहा या मान रहा की मैं मुंबई में हूँ जो की हमारे देश की दूसरी बडी जगह है चिकित्सीय शिक्षा के लिए, दिल्ली के बाद । फिर जब सोच की इंतेहा पर समझ आया की वो तो उस का दृष्टिकोण था । ऐसा बिल्कुल नहीं था की वह मेरी बात समझने की क्षमता नहीं रखता । लेकिन यह दोष उसके दृष्टिकोण का था जो उस को उसकी सोच के दायरे से बाहर देखने ही नहीं देता। क्यूंकी वो खुद बेलगाम से हैं और पढ़ाई पूरी वही की और अब भी वहीं जा के बसने की कामना करता है, और उसे अपने शहर और कॉलेज के प्रति बहुत गर्व भी है । यह सब जब मेरे दिमाग में और यादों के पर्दों से बाहर आया, तो प्रतीत हुआ की उस का नज़रिया उस को रोक रहा था मेरे नजरिये को देखने से । उस की सोच की सीमा वहीं तक सीमित है और वो उस से आगे देख नहीं पा रहा।

यही काम तो है सीमाओं का जो की मानवता को बांधने में, इस की मानसिक रूप से मर्यादित करने में सफल हो गयी हैं। सोच की सीमाएं, चाह की सीमाएं, अनजानी चीजों को देखने परखने में संकोच और ऐसी सीमित करने वाली मानसिक पीड़ाओं से हमारा समाज और सामाजिक-तंत्र बंधा हुआ है। हर कोई अपनी सोच और अपने दृष्टिकोण के आगे, बाहर या आस पास और उस से दूर पनपने वाली बेहतर और उच्च चीजों या बातों को अपनी पहुँच से बाहर पता है। ऐसा क्यूँ है ?

और देखिये क्या कहते हैं अललमा इकबाल :

सितारों से आगे जहां और भी हैं ।
अभी इश्क़ के इम्तेहान और भी हैं ।
तिही ज़िंदगी से नहीं ये फ़ज़ाएं
येहां सैकड़ों कारवाँ और भी हैं ।
कनाअत न कर आलम-ए-रंग-ओ-बु पर
चमन और भी हैं आशियाँ और भी हैं।
अगर खो गया एक नशेमन तो क्या ग़म
मुक़ामात-ए-आह-व-फुगाँ और भी हैं।
तू शाहीन है परवाज़ है तेरा काम
तेरे सामने आसमां और भी हैं ।
इसी रोज़-व-शब में उलझ कर न रेह जा
के तेरे ज़मान-व-मकां और भी हैं ।
गए दिन के तन्हा था मैं अंजुमन में
येहां अब मेरे राज़दान और भी हैं ।
***************

Also remembering this song :

jahaan daal par sone ki chidiya karti hai baseraa
woh bhaarat desh hai meraa

The Rafi song featured here is from the film ‘Johar in Kashmir’. The word ‘Johar’ means, a jewel or a gem and pearl. ‘jawahrat’ – is a word for collection of precious jewels, diamonds, pearls etc. ‘Johar’ also means talent or stupendous ability etc.

This song is written by Indeevar and composed by Kalyanji Anandji. The tune is reminding me of Jis ka koi nahin uska to Khuda hai yaaron from Laawaris.

Rafi sahab has rendered this song with his customary gusto. ‘Gusto’ is a word that Atulji used a lot in respect of Rafi songs years ago.

The message in the song is quite apparent. The I S Johar is the dervaish, giving sermons to all and sundry that the day of judgement is not far and none of the oppressors (those committing excesses on fellow beings) will be forgiven and allowed to go scot free.

Essentially what the dervaish is doing is trying to warn the oppressors to be afraid of God almighty and his wrath, ask for his forgiveness while there is still time. It is like trying to help the oppressors, by convincing them to stop the bad deeds and obtain forgiveness from the God Almighty.

Like this hadith:

Allah’s messenger (pbuh) said, ‘Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one.”
People asked “O Allah’s Messenger! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?”
The Prophet said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.”

hamaare bhai huye ham na huye
karbala ke sitam to kam na huye
zulm duniya mein ab bhi zinda hai
aadmeeyat hai ke sharminda hai
aadmeeyat hai ke sharminda hai
maa shaheedon ki ab bhi roti hai
zulm ki hadd bhi koyi hoti hai
haqq paraston ko bhi na-haqq maara
haay dil gham se hai paara paara
haay dil gham se hai paara paara
yazid ki ho hukumat ya kisi zaalim ki
har ek zulm ka insaaf kiya jaayegaa
har ek zulm ka insaaf kiya jaayegaa
aanewaala hai din qayaamat kaa aa aa aa aa
koyi zaalim na bakhsha jaayegaa

sab ki harkat pe nazar rakkhta hai
nek aur bad chhupaa nahi uss se
khudaa to sab ki khabar rakkhtaa hai
khudaa to sab ki khabar rakkhtaa hai
meher pe aaye to gaffar bhi hai
qehar pe utre to jabbar bhi hai
yun to har deen se upar hai khudaa
qadmeeyat ka tarafdaar bhi hai
aadmeeyat ka tarafdaar bhi hai
sholey nafrat ki dilon mein

Allah ta’alaa ka pyaar paane ko
laazmi hai teraa insaan hona
laazmi hai teraa insaan hona
amal to saathh tere ho le gaa
khoon to sar pe chadh ke bole gaa
khudaa mazhab hi na dekhegaa teraa
teri insaaiyat bhi toley gaa
teri insaaiyat bhi toley gaa
pyaar par rakkhi hai buniyaad har ek mazhab ki
koyi talwaar pe rakkhegaa to kya paayegaa
koyi talwaar pe rakkhegaa to kya paayegaa
aanewaala hai din qayamat kaa aa aa aaaa
koyi zaalim na bakhsha jaayegaa

dilon mein farq iss qadar daale
tu ne dariyaa bhi khoon se bhar daale
ek dharti banaayi Allah ne
tu ne tukde hazaar kar daale

aadmeeyat ko tu imaan kar le
yahi islaam ki naseehat hai
apne dil ko bhi musalmaan kar le
apne dil ko bhi musalmaan kar le
hadd se aage na tu badh waqt hai kar le taubaa
roz samjhaane ko darvesh nahin aayegaa
roz samjhaane ko darvesh nahin aayegaa
aanewaala hai din qayaamat kaa aa aa aa aa
koyi zaalim na bakhsha jaayegaa
begunaahon ka lahu hai
ye rang laayegaa
daag daaman pe na aaya
to dil pe aayegaa

Blog Day : 4161 Post No. : 15331

8th December is the 75th birthday of Rinku or Begum Ayesha Sultana Khan who also is known by the name Sharmila Tagore. What was not known is that she was born in Hyderabad. (I didn’t know, the stalwarts of the blog may be aware). She looked so delicate and fragile in “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964) – her Hindi debut, having debuted in Bengali in 1959 through Satyajit Ray’s “Apur Sansar”; the need to protect her from Pran must have come naturally to Shammi Kapoor. She has a super-sweet smile too with deeeep dimples that form whenever she smiles. It was not as if she excelled only in glamourous baby-doll type of roles; she was comfortable even when she played the roles of mother and daughter – Chanda/ Kajri- in Gulzar’s “Mausam” (1975). 1975 saw her in five movies “Mausam”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Faraar”, “Amanush”, “Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka” and the character she played in each of them were completely different from each other.

I started following her from “Chupke Chupke” and then have seen many of her movies from the 60s and 70s on various media- Doordarshan, Satellite Television, YouTube etc. Had been very impressed by her in “Kashmir Ki Kali”, “Anupama”, “Satyakam” and “Viruddh” in the recent times. She was last seen on-screen in 2010 released “Break Ke Baad”. But videos of this elegant lady can be seen on YouTube in interviews etc where she speaks of her life and career and how her sister Oindrila Tagore (Tinku) played Mini, the central child character, in Tapan Sinha’s 1957 “Kabuliwala”.

She speaks of how she was given very short sentences to speak in her first Hindi movie by Shakthi Samanta etc (saw all this on the Zee TV show ‘Jeena Isi ka Naam Hai’).

For the occasion today let us have a song from the 1971 released, K B Tilak directed “Chhoti Bahu” in which she stars with her co-star of several box-office hits – Rajesh Khanna. She paired with him in seven successful movies beginning with “Aradhana” in 1969 and following it up with Amar Prem, Chhoti Bahu, Safar, Daag, Raja Rani, Aavishkaar and Maalik. She had a good pairing with Dharmendra too beginning with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anupama and Devar, Mere Humdam Mere Dost, Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, EK Mahal Ho Sapno ka and the last time we saw the pair together was in Sunny. She also had some good films with Shashi Kapoor- Waqt, Aamne Saamne, New Delhi Times, Suhana Safar etc.

Today’s song reminds me of another song with a similar theme – “Chanda hai tum mera suraj hai tu”. And also “Bada natkhat hai re Krishna Kanhaiya”, she did emote well in these song situations, we could see a lot of love for kids in those expressive eyes
“Chhoti Bahu” had six songs and debuted on the blog with he re Kanhaiyya kisko kahega tu maiyya in Kishore Kumar’s voice. The song is more or less the gist of the movie where we have Nirupa Roy as the equivalent of Devaki and Sharmila as the Yashoda of the young baby Sarika who is called either Kishan or Kanhaiya (have seen the movie ages back, should see again). This was followed by the Mohd Rafi sung ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi. The third song posted was dulhaniya bata de ree . Today we have the fourth wherein a happy, young girl is seen playing “mother” to her favourite doll. As the movie progresses, we get to know that she cannot beget children of her own so her ‘jethani’ gives her the responsibility of being the mother to baby Sarika.
Wishing our Sharmila ‘dimpled’ Tagore a Happy Birthday.

“Heeraa”(1973) was produced and directed by Sultan Ahmed for Sultan Ahmad Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo etc in it, with friedly appearances by Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar and Satyendra Kappu.

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

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by 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. 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

24th November 2019 is the 75th birthday of Amol Palekar – the actor who played a common man or the boy next door character so convincingly that it jolted the audience when they saw him play a cold-blooded murderer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” (1985). He played a similar grey-shaded character in “Teesra Kaun” (1994) and “Aanchal” (1980). So, it is not as if he always stuttered in front of a strict boss as in “Golmaal” (1979), “Damaad” (1978), a person who is hyper worried that he will die of some grave illness, leaving his beautiful young wife grieving – “Meri Biwi Ki Shaadi” (1979) etc.

In between he also attempted playing a different kind of character in “Pyaasi Aankhen” (1983). At least that is what I have deduced from the video that is accompanying today’s song. To be truthful, I had never heard of this movie or its songs till I thought of writing this post. I have heard two songs from the movie and they seem to portray a different kind of Amol Palekar. The movie feels like it will be a heavy, 4-5 handkerchief movie, as tear-jerker movies used to be called back then. This movie was directed by Ram Kelkar who was essentially a screenplay/ dialogue/ script writer for many movies like “Piya Ka Ghar”, “aasha”, “Aap Ki Kasam” and many more successful films. On further googling information on Ram Kelkar we find that he has directed only one other movie- “Duniyadari” in 1977.

“Pyaasi Aankhen” had star cast of Waheeda Rehman- Shabana Azmi- Asha Sachdev- Amol Palekar- Om Prakash, with music by Usha Khanna. Indeevar and Rana Saheri (never heard this name) wrote the songs which were sung by Asha Bhonsle Usha Khanna and Kishore Kumar. This is all the information I could gather on the internet;

I would love to know what the story is and why there is a romantic number between Asha Sachdev and Amol Palekar. Also, I would love to know if Waheeda Rehman played his all sacrificing mother, who is an eye-sore for the haughty daughter-in-law played by Asha Sachdev (my assumption) as I found a song that preached the story of a son who plucks out the mother’s heart because the d-i-l asked for it.

I also found a dance number where Amol Palekar and Shabana have actually done a Bollywood-style folk number. We have always seen this pair in semi-serious avatar as in “Apne Paraye”, Kumar Sahani’s “Tarang” (an art film), and a few more (cannot recollect off-hand).

Today we have a lively song sung by Kishore Kumar and Usha Khanna. After seeing the video, I must admit Amol Palekar is a person with a sense of rhythm and moves well to the beats, he didn’t make a spectacle of himself. He is joined by Om Prakash, Sundar and Shabana and we see Waheeda Rehman being dragged into the dance towards the end. Asha Sachdev is seen enjoying herself. This song from a lesser known movie is a discovery for me.

Just like so many more human endeavors, wherein the concepts and philosophical models of ‘-isms’ are all so correct and convincing, and their practical implications and implementations are so faulty and distorted that the discussions about the defects and flaws, also sounds very convincing in the hindsight.

Take Communism for example. The writings of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Illych Lenin – as they write about the class struggle between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’, and lucidly present their ideas on how to address this social divide, for the betterment of humanity – are so very a convincing, palpable and substantial, that it is easy to be convinced about the failings and deficiencies of the capitalist / imperialistic model of the world order, which should be replaced everywhere with the model of Communist social order. When Marx passed away in 1883, the debate on this subject was quite vigorous both amongst the elite and the working class in the countries of Europe.

Not long thereafter, the revolution of the working class came about in 1917, in Russia, under the leadership of Lenin. A new model of state and governance, and a new social order was established. The history is replete with the narrative of violence and misery that accompanied this change, but the Communist movement had come on to stay. Over the next three decades, this model of a new social order spread to other neighboring states – towards the west of the erstwhile USSR, which formed the countries in eastern European bloc and towards the South East, i.e. China.

For all the populism and the PR that was a big budget activity in the USSR, the model did not quite stick for very long. Within our own lifetimes, we have witnessed the downfall of Communism in 1980s – the so called perestroika or restructuring of the social order and government in the USSR, now Russia. The theories of the great philosophers of the late 19th century, did not quite hold on together when implemented and the rubber met the road. Although China still holds out with their powerful Communist Party supported by their strong army, the Communistic form of social order did last, albeit just for about seven decades.

A similar pageant has played out and is playing out, in India. The ‘-ism’ that is associated with Mahatma Gandhi, that Munna Bhai so endearingly likes to call ‘Gandhi-giri’ (‘Lagey Raho Munna Bhai’, 2006), has seen its prime during the early decades of the twentieth century, and its subsequent devaluation in the closing decades of the same twentieth century. I remember – in the 1980s and 90s, around the time of his birth anniversary (2nd October) every year, one was treated to editorials and articles in newspapers, and panel discussions on Doordarshan, with titles that were variations on “The Relevance of Gandhi Today”. Even then, my mind used to react that as a society, we have apparently lost Gandhi and his ideals, if now that the intelligentsia is beginning to discuss the relevance. Just so strongly underscores the fact that the question of relevance comes to fore, when the storm of doubts and disbelief is surging strong in the society. That discussion still continues.

Where and what are the fault lines? I had read his autobiography – ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’ way back when I was in college. I was, and honestly I still am, deeply impressed, influenced, overwhelmed by honesty and simplicity with which he has laid bare his persona and his internal turmoils, his candid admissions of his faults, expressions of his ideals and idealistic resolutions, and the strength of character to personally follow and implement those ideals in practical life. It is a frightening tale of development of a human mind from the basic animalistic existence to literally a sainthood. It goes to establish that Gandhi was no ordinary soul, and such souls appear on this planet quite rarely. Albert Einstein has so beautifully summed it up in his tribute – “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”

A time was, at the turn of the century, when the nation was seeking a simple philosophy in leadership. Here was a teacher, who did not just teach. In fact he refused to teach or direct others, for things that he himself had not practiced and not lived through himself. A hallmark of a true saint, whose existence within his own mind, and as seen by those around him, is starkly the same. My readings about the Tolstoy Farm that he established in South Africa in 1910, are such an impactful influence. And also a conviction that this soul is an honest and truthful spiritual leader, who will not lead his flock astray for personal or ideological gains.

For all his goodness and his saintly leadership of the people, his words and his teachings stand at crossroads today. The retinue of his followers diminishing over time, and bevy of protesters calling out their criticisms and insults – their tribe is incessantly increasing. Where is the fallacy? Is there an aberration that we see on the radar of history?

A lot has been written and continues to be written about him. But I really wonder how many of us are actually, really reading him. He has written extensively, and not just one book. His complete works including his articles and speeches, will form a complete section of a good size library. Many years ago, maybe more than three decades ago, I read the following in one of his articles printed in 1927 in the journal ‘Young India’. Countering all that I had read till then, and had been hearing about his philosophy of ahimsa (non-violence), here was a paragraph that stunned me with its clarity of thought and perfection of logic.

“My creed of non-violence is an extremely active force. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness. There is hope for a violent man to be someday non-violent, but there is none for a coward. I have therefore said more than once in these pages that if we do not know how to defend ourselves, our women and our places of worship by the force of suffering, i.e., nonviolence, we must, if we are men, be at least able to defend all these by fighting.”

All his life, he incessantly tried to differentiate for his followers, the distinction he made between non-violence and cowardice. In the same journal, in another article, even earlier in 1920, he writes,

“I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence…. But I believe that non-violence is infinitely superior to violence, forgiveness is more manly than punishment. Forgiveness adorns a soldier. But abstinence is forgiveness only when there is the power to punish; it is meaningless when it pretend to proceed from a helpless creature.”

At another place, his words on this same theme are

“Where choice is set between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. . . I prefer to use arms in defense of honor rather than remain the vile witness of dishonor. . .”

Are we, in this age and these circumstances, aware of this strong advocacy of the above distinction he makes between the oh so terribly misunderstood themes of non-violence vs cowardice? And are we teaching, nay even projecting the correct understanding of all that this great soul stood for all his life?

The generation that had spent time with him, that had experienced his influence and his aura first hand, is already relegated to history. Well, almost. The survivors of that generation are very few. In another few years, maybe a decade or so, we shall not be hearing of a Gandhian anymore. For the newer crop of followers that we see, Gandhi is more of a political crutch, and face to be put on the currency notes, nothing much more than that.

Where lies the answer to the ‘WHY’ connected with this scenario? I do not know. There are many an ill of the human tendencies and human traits that we can expound to explain. But probably the answer lies deeper – deeper inside the very constitution of this existence itself. A simple axiom that makes up the destiny of everything that we can observe. Simply put – everything decays. Ensconced in these two simple words is the terrible and profound truth that applies to everything in this universe, and to the universe itself. I will posit it from two different directions that I am aware of.

One – our scriptures. It is written in our scriptures, in the sections where the creation of this universe is described, that when He created this universe, it was perfect, in every possible way that can be thought of. But this perfection lasted for just that first instant of creation. This perfect universe started to decay in the very next instant. It is stated so, in our books. And this decay encompasses everything that is material and even non-material in existence. That is the progression of the ‘yugas’ (eras) that we are so familiar with in our scheme of the universe and its passage through time. The good shall diminish and the things will always be progressively worse.

Two – from the perspective the study of the physical nature of this universe as a subject – Physics. There is a branch of this study called Thermodynamics, which deals with the energy within a system, and all aspects related to it. This branch of physics was formalized as a subject through the research work, both physical and philosophical, of scientists in the 18th and 19th centuries – names like Count Rumford, Sadi Carnot, William Thomson, Gibbs, James Maxwell etc. Based on their works, this branch now has a set of laws called the Laws of Thermodynamics, which are time tested and form the foundations of a huge segment of physical sciences. The second of these laws has a very simple, very interesting statement, and a very profound implication for the entire universe itself. The law states that –

“The total entropy of an isolated system can never decrease over time.”

The key element to understand in this statement is ‘entropy’. Simply defined, entropy is the measure of the state of disorderliness in a physical system. Going by this law, a deduction that can be inferred immediately is that in any physical system, the disorderliness will always increase with time. To put it even more simply, and bluntly, every system will always and only, decay with time. That brings us back to a concurrence with the assertions contained in our scriptures.

And so, as with everything, the social systems will also decay with time. I am sure I do not need to explain this statement further. People with awareness of history, and also, the awareness of the experiences of a lifetime, will concur.

Truth, however, remains unchanged. In all the rigmarole of the eras and human evolution, and the transitions of history that we are aware of, the only thing that remains unchanged is the Truth. In Hindi, the word is ‘सत्य’ which comes from the root ‘सत्’. If I may draw an analogous word from the English language, it would be ‘stat’ or ‘static’, which also means – un-moving, at rest, unchanging. Truth, in this creation, and as a conceptual idea, remains static unchanged, in this tumultuous ocean of creation that is eternally in a chaos of constant change and decay.

The concept of this unchanging Truth is discussed and described quite at length in our scriptures. A basic characteristic of this Truth is that not just that it is unchanging, but it is also inert and passive. It does not DO anything. It just IS.

That thread now brings us back to the Mahatma again. Here is one person who realized quite early in life, the nature of this Truth, as is evident from the title of his autobiography – ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’. Understanding the passive and inactive nature of Truth, he set out on a journey to experiment with it, to understand it better. That realization, and his unflinching endeavor to pursue and investigate it, is what makes him stand out as a giant amongst men. He belongs to that list of a handful people in the history of the human civilization who have raised this query within themselves, and have encountered the answer. For that, he is a Mahatma – the extraordinary soul, and a notch above the Atma – the ordinary souls, who can be counted in millions.

The song being presented today, belongs to the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi. The period of history covered in this film is that of June 1975 to January 1977, during which Emergency was proclaimed in our country. I am not going into the politics behind this episode. Enough to say that in 1977, when the elections were held, the powers that proclaimed and benefitted from this state of emergency, lost, and a new political equation was written into history of India. The film deals with the topic of forced sterilization of menfolk, one of the key ingredients of the political battle in 1977.

The film is produced by Johar Films, and is directed by IS Johar. The name is sufficient to give an idea of what kind of a comical spoof this film is. Especially when we have IS Johar and Rajendranath playing the lead roles.

Geet Kosh lists seven songs for this film, written by Indeewar, Rajendra Krishan and Hullad Muradabaadi. This particular song is written by Indeevar and the music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. This is a background song in the film, rendered by Kishore Kumar.

The song is a regretful complaint about the state of the nation, and a supplication to the Mahatma – as to the social and political conditions prevailing. That the dream of a disciplined and amiable social edifice that the Mahatama had envisioned, was in shambles. The instances of regrets are many, and the passing years and decades, have only added to them. None of them have been is taken away.

And that brings us back to the thread of the continuous decay, everywhere.

The philosophies and the visions of great men are like beacons of light in the thick fog of chaos and uncertainty that this universe, this existence is. And that existence is steadily moving towards more chaos, more uncertainty. That is the nature of existence itself. These great men – Nanak, Buddha, Abraham, Moses Prophet Mohammed, Christ, Socrates, Gandhi, Zoroaster, Kabeer, and many more – have been the extraordinary souls that have realized the Truth of this existence. Their messages to the humankind are an effort to make more of us ordinary souls understand this path, and its goal. But this world is what it is. Despite that so many extraordinary souls have visited and tried to spread this message. Or maybe, we can say that this world is what it is today, because of these enlightened souls – it would have been even a worse present, had these men not visited this earth.

O Gandhi, the vision of society that you shared with us, lies unread in books no one reads anymore, in libraries that no one visits any more.

And thieves have stolen the ‘बकरी’ (goat) whose milk had nourished your soul.

इस्मत लूटा करते हैं जो

Today (15 august 2019) is not only the independence day, it also happens to be the festival of Rakhi.

I have managed to post one independence day song on this occasion. Now it is time I cover a Rakhi festival song as well, before the day wears off.

This raakhi festival song is from “Dav Pech”(1989). The correct spelling should be “Daanv Pench”. This movie was produced by Padmini Kolhapure and directed by Kewal Verma for Padmini Films Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, BhanuPriya(south),Prem Chopra, Dinesh Hingoo, Chandrashekhar,Shakti Kapoor, Bob Christo, Sunil Dhawan, Renu Joshi,C.S.Dubey, Manik Irani,Kamaldeep, Neeta Kapoor,
Sangeeta Kapoor,Master Rinku,Gurbachchan Singh, Gauri Verma,Jugnu, Azad Irani,Umesh Khanna, Surbhi Zaveri etc in it.

This rakhi song had two versions. The duet version (happy version) was sung by Sadhana Sargam and Shailendra Singh. It was picturised on Gauri Verma, Jeetendra and Master Rinku. The sad female solo version was just one stanza long and it was sung by Sadhana Sargam.

Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra long back.

With this song, “Dav Pech”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish our visitors happy Raakhi and also happy independence day.

hoooo…oooooo…ooooo
oooo…oooooo…….oooooo

main har janam teri behnaa banoon
tu har janam meraa bhaiyyaa bane
main har janam teri behnaa banoon
tu har janam meraa bhaiyyaa bane
ek janam kyaa
saaton janam
teraa hi saayaa
sar pe rahe ae
main har janam teraa bhaiyyaa banoon
tu har janam meri behnaa bane

rishte naate bahut hain jag mein
koyee na rishtaa aisaa

bhai behan kaa pyaar hai paawan
gangaa jal ke jaisaa
main uss ghar ki karoon hifaazat
tu jis ghar ka gehnaa bane ae

main har janam teri behnaa banoon
tu har janam meraa bhaiyyaa bane

des rahen pardes rahen hum
badlenge naa iraade

raakhi ke dhaagon mein chhupe hain
pyaar bhare kuchch vaade
buri nazar koyee
chhoo na paaye
tu meraa laaj rakhaiyyaa bane ae
main har janam teraa bhaiyyaa banoon
tu har janam meri behnaa bane

ek janam kyaa
saaton janam
teraa hi saayaa
sar pe rahe ae
main har janam teri behnaa banoon
tu har janam meraa bhaiyyaa bane
hooooo….oooooooooo…ooooo ooooo….oooooooooo…..
ooooo….hoooooooooo……….ooooooooooooo….ooooo
