Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1

Hullo to Atuldom.

Let me wish all a very Happy New Year.

No, my post is not late by three and half months, it is just that India is a country which follows a calendar called Shak Samvat which the Hindus follow and Hijri which the Muslims follow. The new year by the Hijri calendar starts sometime in September but as far as the Hindu Calendar is concerned every region seems to have a different time of the year when the new year starts. And each region has a name for its New Year’s Day – Gudi Padva (Samsaar Padvo in Konkani), Ugadi, Poila Baishak (in East Indian States), Bighu (Bikhu in Uttarakhand), Bishuva Sankranti, Cheti Chand, Vishu or Chitra Vishu (in Kerala and Tamil Nadu), I am sure I am missing a few names in this list – what do I do, we have a vast country. But the common thread here is most of the above are in March – April of the Gregorian calendar (only in some parts new Year is during Diwali and southern part of Kerala has its new year at Onam). In Punjab it is Baishakhi, celebrated on the Mesha Sankraanti which occurs today for this year (generally it is 13th April). So now that explains why I wished Happy New Year.

14th April also happens to be the birth anniversary of the architect of the constitution of India, first law and justice minister and one of India’s founding fathers – Bharat Ratna Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar or Babasaheb Ambedkar as he is popularly known the world over.

He was a jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. My tributes to him on his 128th birthday without spelling his biography here.

There is another event which takes up my day on 14th April every year. In addition to it being our New Year (what we call Vishu) it is the birthdate of a very special person. There is a departure from the usual this year in that the New Year is on the 15th but birthdates don’t change, do they?

So, 14th April is the birthdate of part-time Atulite, full-time Satulite. He is at that year of life when people hang up their boots (he is not hanging them yet) and try to find time for other pleasures and hobbies that took a back seat when they were working hard to make ends meet. This Satulite calls himself Peevesie’s Dad. He takes pleasure in the achievements of his family – his son, daughter, brothers-sisters, brothers & sisters -in-law; is a big bhakt of his parents and parents-in-law; and is generous in encouraging his wife and kids towards whatever they are good at and forever supportive.

Infact he tried his level best to teach me to ride a two-wheeler and didn’t actually give up on me, but I must say I was a bad student who took a whole decade to master riding a two-wheeler. And was rewarded with a two-wheeler to ease my work load as soon as I mastered it. 🙂

As a teenager and right upto the end of my student days I was a staunch hater of any kind of automation and computers in particular. I had a feeling that each computer would eat up the job opportunity of two or three deserving humans (people called me crazy, maybe I was). But it does seem to have replaced a lot of things in people’s lives. Now, today’s birthday boy tried to change my mindset vis-à-vis computers and persuaded me to enroll myself in one of the many match-box size training institutes that tutored commoners about Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc, in addition to teaching a crash course in Corel or PageMaker. He thought it will be a useful skill, I must admit he was not wrong. Then he initiated me into the World-Wide Web and emails, and I am 100% sure he is ruing the day I agreed to learn all that he tried to get me to learn. He finds me at the desktop most of the time these days, and zooming in and around Bangalore (never unnecessarily) on a two-wheeler. And am also sure (secretly) he must be thanking my nervousness of being behind the wheel of a four-wheeler 😉

Oh, there are so many things that I can thank him for – he has lived half his life trying to understand me and my ways and moods. We have common interests in most aspects of life, possibly a little too much of compatibility, according to our children. The song with this post is ideal to express everything that I need to tell him. And the best part about the song is that it is not a lovey-dovey young couple song but a song choreographed on a motley group of honeymoon tourists which has a middle aged couple (Shabana Azmi – Boman Irani), mismatched couple (Ameesha Patel – Karan Khanna), small- town couple (Kay Kay Menon – Raima Sen), seemingly perfect couple (Minisha Lamba – Abhay Deol); and two other couples (Sandhya Mridul – Vikram Chatwal & Dia Mirza – Ranvir Shorey) who are on honeymoon but not exactly in love. (Dia Mirza and Ranvir are not in this song but they are part of the tourists in the Honeymoon Travels bus.) It is from the 2007 Reema Kagti directed “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.” The music for this song is by Vishal- Shekhar and Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. Sunidhi Chauhan and Shekhar Ravjiani are the playback. The movie was produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. I am in love with the choreographer of this song who has allowed the actors do their own thing which adds to the sweetness of the song.

Today’s song is a party song filmed aboard a cruise ship in Goa. I think the song is ideal for one more occasion – partying for the post number 15000 (FIFTEEN THOUSAND Phew!) of the blog. Let me try to list out all that we are celebrating in this series of celebratory posts – 10 complete years of the blog, 10 year challenge (on-going series); 1,15,40,016 hits (as I write this); 3919 days of existence (at the time of writing this) AND 11032 posts by our fearless leader (as Sudhir calls Atul ji) – we celebrated Atulji’s 10000 individual posts but missed complimenting him for tirelessly giving us 11000 posts. And the biggest point of celebration – post number 15000. In addition to celebrating the New Calendar in various parts of the country.

It has taken five years to get to 15k from 10k with numerous milestones and centuries strewn enroute.  The blog has bonded all of its regular followers, some of who are contributors in various avatars, in a bond like none other, a whole bunch of unrelated people who had never dreamt of being friends and don’t mind being called Atulites. For all this and more to come I thank ASAD the blog which is our collective addiction.

Also a very Happy Birthday to our Satulite.

This song I am posting is from the 2010 movie ‘Aisha’ starring Sonam Kapoor & Abhay Deol.  There are other actors but the movie focuses on these two central characters.  It is about characters who do sometimes act out of character.   Aisha is a social butterfly, who dabbles into all i.e. baking, yoga, gardening, drawing, shopping, event management and match making.  In between all this she also finds time to jog in the morning and spends time at animal shelter.  Watching polo match is a foregone conclusion considering her upper class background.  Her charmed circle goes for picnics, stays in tents next to the river and goes river rafting to end the evening singing by the bonfire. She even goes pubbing and parties at farm houses in true Delhi style, in between bitching about a New York returned female colleague of Abhay Deol, who is a corporate slave according to Aisha.  Who wouldn’t want to do all of the above, if one was so inclined within one hour 🙂 .

Sonam Kapoor aka Aisha even goes shopping and transforms a small town girl, Shefali into a clone of herself.  So far as that Abhay Deol, tells her to rename the girl, Maisha or Naisha to rhyme with Aisha.  The film has more crazy antics that Aisha ends up doing. She has access to a tree house too, to sit in the balcony, and make up with the best friend she messed up with.   Wow, how the truly rich people live.  Who wouldn’t want a tree house, who wouldn’t want a real live tree in the house, for that matter.  We all have houses with lots of trees in native places, but cannot stay there.  We want such luxuries here, where we are.  This would be true at least for some of the regulars here, especially those in the metros.

Actually, the film starts and ends with a wedding.  Talking of weddings and looking for a wedding song is what brought me back to this movie, after seeing a whole gamut of Hindi film songs which are about weddings.  My first choice was “Mud Ke Na Dekho Dilbaro” from ‘Raazi’ (2018) which is already posted.   Couple of songs I would have liked to post were also posted like ‘Maaye Ni Maaye” from ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ (1994) posted Peevesie’s Mom.  “Mud Ke Na Dekho Dilbaro” is such a soulful song that I kept playing it in the office after it was posted back in October 2018.  My daughter’s wedding date was fixed for December 2018 and some colleagues / friends who knew it, were quick to point out the aptness of song for the upcoming wedding.

It was Peevesie’s Mom’s post of “Navraai Maajhi Ladaachi Ladaachi Ga” from ‘English Vinglish’ (2012) that gave me the idea of sharing all the good news on my family front.  So let me take this opportunity and congratulate Peevesie’s Mom and family for the important milestone and wish the couple a very long and happy married life.

Almost exactly a month before this happy occasion was the day of our family celebration with our daughters ‘nikaah’ solemnised.  It was our very first experience of personally being responsible for the organisation of an event on this scale.  It is said that man proposes and God disposes.  I have learnt in this event that things have their own way of slipping out of hands and God sends help in the shape of these good souls as ‘Rehmat ke Farishte‘ to save the day.

It was an exciting and hectic period for all of us.

Anyway, as my cousin who is also now daughter’s sister in law too said all that really matters is that the two people getting married are happy together, everything else is secondary.

Coming back to the wedding celebrations, it was my younger sister and brother in law, who did a lot of hard work getting this show on the road.  My daughter being the only girl child among us three sisters, my brother and sister and brother in law really wanted to make an event of it.  They rallied the kids and some adults in the family including my son to make short and cute singing, dancing cameo performances for the Mahendi function.

Alhamdullillah, the year 2018 has been an eventful and fortunate year for us, with my son’s success in NEET’2018 and being admitted in college of his choice in Mumbai and we cannot thank the Almighty Allah(swt) for all the blessings that he has bestowed upon us all.

How time has flown.  When I started contributing in the blog my daughter was still in school and my son was a mischievous hyper-active boy who needed all round supervision and attention.   Now it seems my husband and me both are almost daily try to remind him that he has parents too and he should at least try put in a WhatsApp message in the family group.  Frequently, his phone battery is discharged, or he loses the charger or sitting in the library where his phone has no range.

As the blog moves towards 15000 song post mark, I am trying to send a fair number of song posts.  Hopefully, my posts won’t need too much of proof reading.

This song from ‘Aisha’ has a mukhda fully in Punjabi, which was a bit tricky in getting the lyrics right.  Rather think that I have done a good job of correcting the lyrics which ‘Google’ came up with.  Javed Akhtar’s lyrics and Amit Trivedi’s music and Tochi Raina’s singing make this a good, if peppy number.  I think this Tochi Raina, making his debut in the blog is the same as Toshi Rana, a winner on ‘Indian Idol” years ago, back during my TV watching days.

Lyrics (Based on Audio Version)

gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol
masti mein tu vi dol
mann de naina tu khol
chahat ke moti rol
dil haunda ae anmol
ye daulat se na tol
aa soni tainu chaand ki main choodi pehrawa
mainu kar de ishaara te main doli lai aanwa

gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol
masti mein tu vi dol

jaanleva teri adaa
kaise na koi ho fidaa
tera ang sharaara
jaise mare lishkara
sohniye
dekhan ta dil dhadke
tann mein agan bhadke
surat aisi mannmoni
kiddan dasaan tu hai soni
heeriye
gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol
masti mein tu vi dol
mann de naina tu khol
chaahat ke moti rol
dil hunda ae anmol
ye daulat se na tol
aa sohni tainu chaand ki main choodi pehrawa
mainu kar de ishaara te main doli lai aanwa

chaahne waala hoon tera
dekh le aidar zara
tu jo vekhe ik nazar
karaan lakkhaan da shukar
sohniye
dekh to keh ke tu mujhe
jaan bhi de dunga tujhe
tera aisa hoon deewana
tu ne ab tak yeh na jaana
heeriye
gal mitthi mitthi bol
ras kaano vich ghol
bajne de taashe dhol,
masti mein tu vi dol
mann de naina tu khol
chaahat ke moti rol
dil hunda ae anmol
ye daulat se na tol
aa sohni tainu chaand ki main choodi pehrawa
mainu kar de ishaara te main doli lai aanwa

gal mitthi mitthi bol

Blog Day : 3837 Post No. : 14846

It was in 1985 that after appearing my 12th exams, and as usual to take up some work in summer vacations, that I joined a Nagpur based Construction Company at Parli Vaijnath. Results for the exams were on favourable and I failed, so I continued working and after almost eleven months as the project was over, looking into my sincerity and dedication the site incharge recommended and arrange a job for me in Delhi based company working there for the expansion project. And going by the circumstances in a middle-class family, I dropped the idea of joining ‘regular education’ and instead thought that maybe I should opt for distance education – which however, become possible only after three and half years almost. . .

Well, when I joined this Delhi based company the first thing coming to my mind was travelling to Delhi and that way travelling India, because I had only visited Nagpur by that time, which was a big city for me other than the place where we were staying near Akola. I had not imagined then where I am heading to and how my life will be shaped or anything serious like that – I just kept going. I ended up working in this company for almost seventeen and half years.

After Parli Vaijnath the next destination for me was Koradi (Nagpur) for a short period, then to Kota (Rajasthan) for seven and half years, then to Phulpur (Allahabad) for two years, from there to Aonla (Bareilly) for almost six years. In between to Sonepat (Haryana) for a short period. Again Bareilly and from there to  Ghaziabad (UP), this was again for a short period of six months, then to Mundra (Kachchh-Gujarat) in between Kandla-Adipur (Kachchh-Gujarat). I spent almost eleven years in Kachchh before I left a job – reasons are part of another article 🙂 , but mainly to prove myself that I can do anything 🙂 .

Couple of months I was without job when I got an opportunity to join a company of my very first boss, who had by then become an owner of a company. This was my coming back to roots – return to Maharashtra after almost twenty-seven years. I spent almost two years in Nagpur to return to Gujarat – to shift my wife and as my daughters were already studying there so that I can proceed for my first overseas job in Kenya.

***

As I left my home state for work in 1988, I was always thinking of getting back there to be with my parents to have a settled life after marriage. However, as years passed by it didn’t happen even after my trying and appearing for several interviews. This longing for going back to Maharashtra was still there for many years when I was a bachelor and till many years after I got married. But as years passed, and I continued with my job, I slowly lost the interest of going back to my home state or the neighboring state. Then it was like if not Maharashtra at least Gujarat where industries were flourishing and job opportunities were more.

During this period, I always used to think about my childhood friends and other peoples who were well settled at the nearby places in home state and living a well settled life. I was envious of them, because from my batch I think I was the only one who had to leave the state and had to struggle, and move from place to place.

In our family also, before me, only my youngest uncle who had joined army was the first person to leave the state and travel across India. All other relatives either paternal or maternal were settled in Maharashtra only. After my army man uncle and me, it was after many years that one of my cousins got an opportunity in Germany and he is there since many years now.

So, I was always dreaming about the ‘fursat ke raat din’ and in turn the ‘smooth life – the ‘sahal rastaa’. . . Let us read some lines about this, that Javed Akhtar has written in his poem ‘Doraahaa’ (taken from his book ‘Tarkash’ (Quiver) and transliterated in English). I remember these lines with reverence – these were recited by my Guru and Motivational Speaker Shri Rooshikumar Pandya ji in one of his programs I attended, and that is how I became aware of it.

ye jeewan ik raah nahin
ik doraahaa hai
 
pehlaa rastaa bahut sahal hai
is mein koi mod nahin hai
ye rastaa, is duniya se bejod nahin hai
is raste par miltey hai
reeton ke aangan
is raste par miltey hai
rishton ke bandhan
is raste par chalnewaale
kehne ko sab sukh paate hai
lekin
tukde tukde ho kar
sab rishton mein bant jaate hai
apne palle kuchh nahin bachtaa
bachti hai
benaam si uljhan
saanson ka indhan
jis mein unki apni har pehchaan
aur un ke saare sapne
jal bujhte hai
is raste par chalnewaale
khud ko khokar jag paate hai
upar-upar to jeete hai
andar-andar mar jaate hai

***

But then I get to travel many places, working new job environments, facing new problems, visiting new places, adjusting to the new environments, different cultures, different cuisines 🙂 ; I start enjoying this way. . .

And the motivating things were – thinking about armed forces who are way not only from their homeland but away from their families too? How they survive? People who get transferred on regular intervals? How they cope with it? Even government servants. Or we also have employees getting transferred every now and then within a short period of time, how they deal with it? What are their sufferings?

And, working at or visiting construction sites and places around them and the ‘sub-travel’ that happened during this,  I was always reminded of the famous novel ‘Rangbhoomi’, by Munshi Premchand ji, and I used to think how years back he had written about the industrialization and its effects, and how it affects people’s behaviour staying away from their homes or had to leave their families in search of job and survival.

And I realized that my sufferings are not even a fraction of what these people were already going through in their lives.

***

After spending almost fifteen years (out of my home state Maharashtra where I left on 29.11.1988 to reach Kota then) in north India, I finally got a placement in a Delhi based company for their plant in Kachchh-Gujarat. I spent five and half years in one company and then shifted to another company in search of ‘growth’ – personal as well as professional.

When I made this change my HR head used to ask me that what change I got? Am I happy? And he was always telling me that ‘the sky is the same everywhere’. . .

Well, during those years I was reading and studying Sahir almost on daily basis and again somehow the circumstances at work were not giving me satisfaction. ‘Shaahi Ki Zanjeerein Todte Chalo’ – this song was daily going through my mind then, and as I shared it, it appeared on the blog on 02.12.2014 and within a week I ‘broke the shackles’ to put in my papers. I resigned without having another job in hand. I was ready to take new challenge but I didn’t expect of what it finally turned out to be for me.

I was without job for almost two and half months. Here we go back to the remaining part of the poem of Javed Akhtar Saab,

doosraa rastaa
bahot kathin hai
is raste mein
koi kisi ke saath nahin hai
koi sahaara dene waala haath nahin hai
is raste mein
dhoop hai
koi chhaaon nahin hai
jahaan tassalli bheekh mein de de
koi kisi ko

is raste mein
aisa koi gaaon nahin hai
ye un logon ka rastaa hai
jo khud apne tak jaate hai
apne aapko jo paate hai
tum is raste par hi chalna
 
mujhe pataa hai
ye rastaa aasaan nahin hai
lekin mujhko ye gham bhi hai
tumko ab tak
kyun apni pehchaan nahin hai

(Javed Saab had written this poem to his daughter Zoya)

***

Somehow, luckily, I got an opportunity and a job in Nagpur and somehow bitter-sweet I survived those two years again to change for a new job for which I would have to stay away from my family. Somehow these days are also passing now and the assignment will be finished soon. Or I will part the ways again, as yet once again I am feeling to move to other ‘horizons’. . .

I don’t know if what happened in my case had also happened with other people too. When I left the job in Gujarat and came back to Nagpur to work in a company which was owned by my very first boss when he himself was in service in another small construction company then. Then the company I joined in Kenya is where one of my earlier bosses already working as a director and with whom I had worked at two project sites in India years earlier, and I was coming back to him after almost eighteen years.

I get to relive the ‘nostalgia’ (in different settings now though) of those years again when I was junior to them and even junior in my professional life and when I came back to them at least I had achieved something in my professional life.

Still, working in different professional organisations, the question remains – Am I satisfied? Am I successful? Have I excelled myself since my previous work settings and professional journey?

Am I satisfied where I have reached from where I started?

And naturally ‘satisfaction’ and ‘success’ parameters are different for each individual.

So, it cannot be measured 🙂 . Some may be ‘satisfied but not successful’ and some ‘successful but not satisfied’ (I had once read it somewhere 🙂 ). But of course, the yardstick varies from person to person.

Almost nine months back, my family had to shift from Anand to Vadodara as my daughter had got a job there. This was the first time in all these twenty-four years after my marriage that the ‘shifting’ of household was going to be done without me!! I remember one night when I was going to bed in my camp and was just looking at my room made from ‘China structure’ the thought just came to my mind was – how many ‘roofs’ have I changed till now – (Kiraaye ke makaanon se lekar apne makaan tak aur phir se kiraaye ke makaanon tak. . .).

What I had achieved so far. . . And most importantly what I have contributed so far wherever I had been?

I quote Javed Akhtar again, ‘Krishanchander’ from the collection ‘Tarqash’.

apni zindagi mein tumne kya kiya?
kisi se sachche dil se pyaar kiya?
kisi dost ko nek salaah di?
kisi dushman ke bete ko mohabbat ki nazar se dekha?
jahaan andheraa tha wahaan roshni ki kiran le gaye?
jitni der tak jeeye, is jeene ka kya matlab tha?

Or take this from Sahir, when Naresh Kumar Shaad interviewed Sahir

‘When and where were you born?’

Sahir’s reply was ‘Young man, this is a routine question. Instead, when you ask me that question, add ‘why were you born?’ (taken from Akshay Manwani’s ‘Sahir Ludhianvi -The People’s Poet’

***

I remember one of my Bengali colleagues who was with me at Kota and had knowledge about palmistry telling me that wherever I will be I will be loved and remembered there. . . “lekin paisa rahega nahin tumhaare paas“. The same thing was told to me by my landlord at Bareilly who had a knowledge of astrology, ‘beta, jo bhi kamaaoge kharch ho jaayega’ 🙂 .

 But as I look back now, I feel happy about this journey till date;

ye ejaaz hai apni aawaargi ka
jahaan bhi gaye daastaan chhod aaye
(Habib Jaalib)

 And yet once again I am facing the same question again ‘I have to go from where I am’ but where? The addiction to travel to different places and meet different peoples, new problems, new observations – will that allow me to settle?

jidhar jaate hain sab, jaana udhar achchhaa nahin lagta
mujhe paamaal raaston ka safar achchhaa nahin lagta
(Javed Akhtar)

Or take this conversation as mentioned by Javed Akhtar while elaborating on his poem ‘Aawaargi’ the conversation between a master and his servant, from a story by Albert Camus;

I am going away from here

Where are you going? (Servant asks the Master)

I am going away from here that is where I am going

And I am sure there are many who must have enjoyed their respective ‘aawargis’, and there must be many who are enjoying now and there will be many who will choose their path when their ‘dil’ says and enjoy their ‘aawaargi’. . .  Here the ‘enjoyment’ is enjoying the ‘struggles’, the ‘sufferings’, the ‘hard work’, ‘the success’, the ‘failure’, the ‘regrets’, the ‘loneliness’, the ‘company’, ‘the good and bad decisions’, but keep going on and finding one’s own way in this journey of life. . .  I had been fortunate to meet few of them in my life and they have contributed a lot to the society too and left a mark of themselves around the peoples and places they were with. . .

हमारे हर शऊर -ए -ज़िन्दगी का राज़ ठहरेगी यही आवारगी
कल बाइस -ए -एज़ाज़ ठहरेगी 
– ओबैद आज़म आज़मी 

(शऊर -ए -ज़िन्दगी = जीवन की समझ
बाइस -ए -एज़ाज़ = सम्मान का कारण )

***

Javed Akhtar’s take on ‘aawaargi’ begins with these lines from the nazmaawaara’ by Majaaz Lucknowi.

shehar ki raat aur main naashaad-o-naakaaraa firoon
jagmagaati jaagti, sadakon pe aawaaraa firoon

I request readers to go through this link – ‘Aaawargi’ – and listen what Javed Akhtar had said about his poem ‘aawargi’ – the song we are enjoying today.

In Hindi movies, there are many songs and many famous ones too, having the word ‘aawaara’ used in them. However, I think that Aawaara Hoon’ from ‘Aawaara’ (1951) and one non-filmy song of Bhupen Hazarika ‘haan aawaara hoon’ are the closer to the theme of ‘aawaargi’ as mentioned by Javed Akhtar. Let us see the following stanzas each taken from these two songs;

aabaad nahin barbaad sahi
gaataa hoon khushi ke geet magar
zakhmon se bharaa seenaa hai meraa
hansti hai magar ye mast nazar
duniyaa aaa
duniyaa mein tere teer kaa yaa taqdeer kaa maaraa hoon
yaa gardish mein hoon aasmaan kaa taaraa hoon
aawaaraa hoon, aawaaraa hoon

and

jahaan kahin dekhe zindagi ke rang
wahaan thehar gaya
aawaargi mein aawaargi ko
manzil bana liya
maine dekhi hai kahin
gagan choomti oonchhi ataari
aur khaaq chhaanti dekhi hai wahin
zindagi bechaari
kahin dekhi hai kabhi
chaukhaton par
jhoolti phulwaari
murjhaayi kahin
khil na saki
ik kali bechaareee
maine dekhn hain zameen pe kai
bujhte huye sooraj
jalta hai jo aakaash mein
wo raat ka taara hoon
haan aawaara hoon

Even the song “Aawaara Ae Mere Dil“is another nice song. I may be forgetting some other songs – the readers may please add to this list of ‘aawaargi’ theme.

***

Now let us consider the peoples involved in this creation – the song of today – and the phase they were passing through in each of their individual lives. Because this composition is overall so nice that I was in dilemma on whose anniversary or special occasion I should present it. But since the ‘first creation’ are the lyrics I thought it appropriate to be posted on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Javed Akhtar (17 January). Wishing him belatedly on his seventy fourth birth anniversary and wishing him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

RD Burman the composer, I think, has given one his best and all-time great composition. And I would rate in the same category as “Zindagi Ke Safar Mein Guzar Jaate Hain Jo Maqaam“, “Raah Pe Rehte Hain, Yaadon Pe Basar Karte Hain“. Early eighties were the period when Pancham Da’s career was on the declining phase, though during this period to 1994 till ‘1942 A Love Story’ happened he had given many beautiful compositions to us.

Kishore Kumar was already ruling the roost then but somewhere he was eager to go back to his roots to Khandwa ‘chal re musaafir chal re ab apne garb ko chal re’And somewhere in this song we can find from his voice that he was eager to return back to Khandwa as early as possible which did not happen as he passed away in 1987.

 ***

 ‘Duniyaa’ (1984) was directed by Ramesh Talwar for Dharma Productions, Pvt Ltd. It was produced by Yash Johar. Hiroo Johar was the associate producer of this movie. Naresh Malhotra was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by the famous Waman Bhonsle and Gurudutt Shirali. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.09.1984.

It had Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Amrita Singh, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, and Pran. It also featured Satyen Kappu, Mac Mohan, Javed Khan, Arvind Deshpande, Sulbha Deshpande, Akbar, Dhumal, Master Rinkoo, Baby Pooja, and supported by many others. Pradeep Kumar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Om Puri makes a guest appearance in this movie, while Saira Banu appeared in a very special appearance in this movie.

Story, Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Javed Akhtar who also wrote the lyrics of the six songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by RD Burman. And I think this album can be included in one of the best of Pancham Da, as this movie has all good songs. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

No video clip of this song is available so far. I have also not watched this movie and so do not know in which context this song might have appeared in the movie.

Song – Phirte Hain Kab Se Dar-b-Dar (Duniya) (1984) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

phirtein hain kabse dar-badar
ab is nagar
ab us nagar
ik doosre ke hamsafar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
naa-aashna har rehguzar
naa-meharbaan sabki nazar
jaayen to ab jaayen kidhar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
phirtein hain kabse dar-badar
ab is nagar
ab us nagar

ik din mili ik maahjabeen
tan bhi haseen
jaan bhi haseen
dil ne kahaa hamse wahin
khwaabon ki hai manzil yahin
khwaabon ki hai manzil yahin
phir yoon huaa
wo kho gayee
to mujhko zid si ho gayi
laayenge usko dhoondh kar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
phirtein hain kabse dar-badar
ab is nagar
ab us nagar

ye dil hi thha jo seh gayaa
wo baat aisi keh gayaa
kehne ko phir kya reh gayaa
ashqon ka dariyaa beh gayaa
ashqon ka dariyaa beh gayaa
jab keh ke wo dilbar gayaa
tere liye main mar gayaa
rotein hain usko raat bhar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
phirtein hain kabse dar-badar
ab is nagar
ab us nagar

ham bhi kabhi aabaad thhe
aise kahaan barbaad thhe
be-fiqr thhe aazaad thhe
masroor thhe
dilshaad thhe
masroor thhe
dilshaad thhe
wo chaal aisi chal gayaa
hum bujh gaye dil jal gayaa
nikley jalaa ke apnaa ghar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
phirtein hain kabse dar-badar
ab is nagar
ab us nagar
ik doosre ke hamsafar
main aur meri ee ee aawaargi
phirtein hain kabse dar-badar

ab is nagar

ab us nagar. . .

[Following stanza is not included in the song/movie.

aasaar hain sab khot ke
imkaan hain sab chot ke
ghar band hain sab got ke
ab khatm hain sab totke
kismet ka sab ye pher hain
andher hain
andher hain
aise huye hai be-asar
main aur meri aawaargi

फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर
अब इस नगर
अब उस नगर
इक दूसरे के हमसफ़र
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
ना-आशना हर रहगुज़र
ना-मेहरबान सबकी नज़र
जाएँ तो अब जाएँ किधर
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर
अब इस नगर
अब उस नगर

इक दिन मिली इक महजबीन
तन भी हसीं
जान भी हसीं
दिल ने कहा हमसे वहीँ
ख़्वाबों कि है मंजिल यहीं
ख़्वाबों कि है मंजिल यहीं
फिर यूं हुआ
वो खो गयी
तो मुझको ज़िद सी हो गयी
लायेंगे उसको ढूंढ कर
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर
अब इस नगर
अब उस नगर

ये दिल ही था जो सह गया
वो बात ऐसी कह गया
कहने को फिर क्या रह गया
अश्कों का दरिया बह गया
अश्कों का दरिया बह गया
जब कह के वो दिलबर गया
तेरे लिए मैं मर गया
रोतें हैं उसको रात भर
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर
अब इस नगर
अब उस नगर

हम भी कभी आबाद थे
ऐसे कहाँ बर्बाद थे
बे-फिक्र थे आज़ाद थे
मसरूर थे
दिलशाद थे
मसरूर थे
दिलशाद थे
वो चाल ऐसी चल गया
हम बुझ गए दिल जल गया
निकले जला के अपना घर
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर
अब इस नगर
अब उस नगर
इक दूसरे के हमसफ़र
मैं और मेरी॰॰ई आवारगी
फिरतें हैं कबसे दर-बदर

अब इस नगर

अब उस नगर॰ ॰ ॰

[नीचे दिया गया अंतरा, जो इसी नज़्म का हिस्सा है,
फिल्म के लिए रेकॉर्ड नहीं किया गया।]

आसार हैं सब खोट के
इमकान हैं सब चोट के
घर बंद हैं सब गोट के
अब ख़त्म हैं सब टोटके
किस्मत का सब ये फेर हैं
अंधेर हैं
अंधेर हैं
ऐसे हुए हैं बे-असर
मैं और मेरी आवारगी

Blog Day : 3683 Post No. : 14585

18th August is the birthday of another veteran of Bollywood. She has been around from the age of 8 beginning as a child star in ‘Gunga Jumna’ (1961). She has been awarded the filmfare best supporting actress award twice and also the Life Time Achievement award. I am here talking of Aruna Irani. She turns 64 today.

Here is a song on the occasion which presents her in a different style from her usual dancing self. Also a thing to be noted is that in this clip, they have used visuals from black and white movies especially from the days when Madhubala and Dilip Kumar were a hit pair. Plus another thing that struck me was the chemistry between the two leading actresses – Shabana Azmi and Aruna Irani (playing the elder sister). The story line is somewhat based on the life of the two famous singing sisters in the industry – Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

‘Saaz’ was produced and directed by Sai Paranjpe in 1998.  Jaaved Akhtar is the lyricist. This particular song is Zakir Hussain’s composition. It is sung by Devaki Pandit.

Happy birthday to Aruna Irani.

Song – Phir Bhor Bhayee Jaaga Madhuban (Saaz) (1998) Singer – Devaki Pandit, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Zakir Hussain

phir bhor bhayi jaaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi jaaga madhuban
phir mehki hawa

phoolon se mili phir koi kiran
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi jaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi

phir mausam ras chhalkaane laga
phir mausam ras chhalkaane laga
phir kaliyon mein rang aane laga 
phir koi nadi balkhaane lagi
phir koyal mann me gaane lagi 
phir goonja mere mann ka aangan
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi

phir geet hawa mein ghulne lage
phir bol suron mein dhulne lage
phir raagini machli saanson mein
phir shehad ghula aawazon mein
phir jhoom utha yeh neel gagan
aaa aaaa aaaa
phir bhor bhayi jaga madhuban
phir bhor bhayi

फिर कोयल मन में गाने लगी
फिर गूँजा मेरे मन का आँगन
आss आss आsssss
फिर भोर भई

फिर गीत हवा में घुलने लगे
फिर बोल सुरों में धुलने लगे
फिर रागिनी मचली साँसों में
फिर शहद घुला आवाज़ों में
फिर झू उठा ये नील गगन
आss आss आsssss
फिर भोर भई जागा मधुबन

Blog Day : 3681 Post No. : 14576

Greetings to all friends and readers, as India celebrates another anniversary of its freedom from foreign domination.

A lot can be and has been said and debated about this theme, in the press, in the media, in personal conversations. . . there is never a perfect closure to these discussions. Yes, the honor of the nation is an emotion that should and almost always does, transcend all other emotions. I say almost, because, at least in my evaluation of an individual’s relationships with the surroundings and the society, the matters of culture and humanism would at times weigh in more than national pride. In my mind, the definitions of national boundaries are quite artificial. They are more often than not, drawn by vested and many a times malicious intentions. Humanism, on the other hand, has no boundaries, period, none whatsoever across the planet. And culture – well it is defined more by environmental forces and the flow of historical compulsions. Culture grows. It develops and spreads driven by natural boundaries, and human acceptance of that which correctly conforms to the natural affinities and tendencies.

History, they say, is always written by the victorious. And they also say, that the Gods favor the righteous. One would thus expect the flow of human experience should be more correct and righteous. But it is not. The history of the human experiences is fraught more with misery and evil, than anything else. In the circumspect analysis, one would then conclude contrary to “. . . the Gods favor the righteous”, that might is right. Because more often than not, the victorious generally are the stronger contender, and also, more often than not, they are ruthless in their beliefs. And if not, the victory brings them to that point where they become so. Power corrupts – invariably.

Of all the good and bad topics in the history of what we call the struggle for independence of India, for me, the most punishing act inflicted on our nation, and more importantly, our culture, was the partition of our land. And lest we forget, our nation was partitioned more than once, and quite surreptitiously, before the much celebrated and bloody events of 1947.

First, in 1896, the Durand Line was drawn that created Afghanistan. For millennia before that, even before the Muslim and Mughal clans invaded India, the kings of this subcontinent had ruled over the land of Afghans and beyond, and had the regions of Samakkand and Bukhara in their regime. That was the first cut.

Then, in 1914, a conference was held in Simla. The McMahon line was announced and the Tibetan regions were delinked from India, formally by creating an international boundary. The next cut came in 1937 – the boundaries on the east were redrawn and Burma was carved out as a state, separate from India. And then, of course the cruelest cut of all, came in 1947 with the adoption of the Radcliffe line and the creation of a separate nation of Pakistan in two parts, the West and the East. Over a period of just about 50 years, a grand continent nation with its grand culture, that stretched from the Pamirs in Central Asia, to as far as Siam (now Thailand) and Cambodia in the Far East, was reduced to half its original spread.

Going across a vast region of land, having a variety of geographies – plains, mountains and deserts, having people speak more than a thousand dialects, having people with a plethora of contrarian food habits – still this vast expanse of land was united by a single seminal culture that arose from the earth of this sub-continent.

Couple of days back, when I was doing some research on ‘Urvashi’ and Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, for the post by Bharat Bhai, my eyes caught another related reference – a historical treatise of major proportions, authored by the same Dinkar. The title – ‘संस्कृति के चार अध्याय’ (‘Sanskriti Ke Chaar Adhyaye’ – a history of our culture in four chapters). In this path break historical thesis, Dinkar has charted the course of evolution of the culture of this subcontinent. The first segment talks about the Vedic origins of our culture. The second segment examines the rise of Buddhism and Jainism – the conflict and then the subsequent coming together in a single society. The third segment documents the advent of Islam, the reign of the Islamic dynasties – once again, the conflict and then the subsequent genesis of the Ganga-Jamni culture of peaceful co-existence. The fourth segment studies the invasion by the European kingdoms and the associated arrival of Christanity to the shores of this nation. Yet once again, discusses the conflict and the eventual prevalence of the merged society.

Over the ages, the culture of this land has exhibited a remarkable resilience to external influences, even potentially destructive influences. In the four phases of the history researched and documented by Dinkar, each phase establishes the thought supremacy of the tolerant and humanist culture of this land, that imbibed all that came to it, accepted them as different and yet the same, allowed a peaceful coexistence outside of the political machinations, and made the foreigners love it, and blend into it. That, in my opinion, is the superlative strength of this culture. And just because of this strength, I believe this culture will never be, it cannot be – destroyed. No wonder, our forefathers called it the ‘सनातन संस्कृति’ – a culture that is timeless, without a beginning and without an end.

I have a dream. Generally it is said – dreams are dreams. And nothing more. But still – I have a dream. And the dream comes from my desire to be able to go back to the land of my familial ancestors, to the places where my parents and grandparents were born and where they lived and thrived. The partition of 1947 was a disaster of proportions much greater than the Holocaust that was wreaked upon Europe by Hitler and his Germany. The number of people who suffered at the hands of the Third Reich is of the order of 5 million. The 1947 partition consumed anywhere between 10 to 20 million people on both sides of the border. And yet, the world historians do not discuss this monumental human tragedy as what it really is.

That is the power of subjugation and slavery that our self serving political leadership has always accepted and acquiesced to. There are many examples in world history, where nations have been partitioned and separated, and then they have come together once again, because the people wanted it to be so. The US has seen its own flavor of this partition during the Civil War (1861 – 1865), but they fought to bring it back together. Germany was partitioned in 1945 and the people finally toppled the Berlin Wall in 1989. Vietnam was divided and it fought the greatest superpower for decades, so it could be one once again. And now the efforts for Korea are beginning to be heard.

I have a dream, which I am quite sure will always remain a dream.

The song I present today is from a film that needs not introductions. Three songs of this musical bonanza are already showcased on our blog. I picked this film and this song for this post, because this film, as recently as 14 years ago, made a very courageous attempt to call out a spade, a spade. It is this and other similar literary and cultural expressions that give a breath of life to the dream I have. And the thing that I simply love about this film and this song, is the unabashed expression that confirms that the two neighbors are the same land and the same culture.

aisa des hai mera
ho oo
jaisa des hai tera

Ah yes, this song confirms my dream. But I also know that my dream will always remain a dream. . .

The film is ‘Veer Zaara’ from 2004. It has been a popular hit in its time, and I am sure I do not need to cover more details – friends and readers are likely already familiar. The song is written by Javed Akhtar. The music has been adapted from the unused tunes created by the late Madan Mohan, which are now in the collection of his son, Sanjeev Kohli. The singing voices are those of Udit Narayan, Lata Mangeshkar, Pritha Majumdar, and the famous Punjabi folk singer and actor Gurdas Maan, who makes a brief cameo appearance in this song itself.

Today morning, I read an article written by Anupam Sinha, that was carried in the Indian Express newspaper. Readers will be familiar with this name – he is the director of ‘Mulk’, the Rishi Kapoor starrer that is released just recently – on the 3rd of this month itself. In the film and the in the article, Anupam Sinha is raising many uncomfortable questions about the direction of the destiny of this nation and this land. Questions that today are becoming more and more difficult to articulate in the evolving ethos of the culture of this sub continent. That says quite a bit, doesn’t it. Yes, it is becoming more and more difficult to raise such questions.

That is the source of my fears – that my dream is always going to remain a dream. . .

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 19
———————————————————————

मिले ना फूल
तो काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰ ॰ ॰

दस बरस पहले, एक सफर शुरू हुआ – एक सफर जिसका कुछ भी नियत नहीं था, कुछ निश्चित प्रयोजन नहीं था, कुछ आशा भी नहीं थी के ये सिलसिला जाने कब तक चले। बस सिर्फ एक धुन, और एक नग़मा – ले चला जिधर ये दिल निकल पड़े।

और साथ ये भी कह दिया कि मंज़िल कहाँ कहाँ रुकना है ऊपर वाला जाने॰ ॰ ॰

कुछ मालूम नहीं था ये सफर क्या शक्ल हासिल करेगा। क्या कोई हमसफर मिलेगा? मालूम नहीं, ये सोचा भी था के नहीं। लेकिन फिर भी क्या॰॰॰ एक ज़िंदगी का तार पकड़ कर चल दिये। और सोचा यूं कि चलते चलो चलता हुआ साहिल है ज़िंदगी। ये तो अच्छा किया कि दूर की सोची नहीं। अब तीन साल में क्या हो या पाँच सात साल में क्या होगा ऐसी हर फिक्र को धुएँ में उड़ाते हुये, बस एक दिन और एक गीत – इस क्रम पे चलना शुरू किया।

कहते हैं, जब कर्म और विचार में खोट नहीं, तो प्रकृति, दिशाएँ, तत्व, देव – सब कुछ ही साथ हो संबल देते है।  दस साल पहले जो सफर अकेले ही शुरू हुआ था, आज इन दस साल के बाद अब इसकी गिनती करोड़ों में होती है।  क्रम नहीं बदला, नीयत नहीं बदली – जो बदला वो बस यही के लोग साथ आते गये और कारवां बढ़ता गया।

दस साल बाद भी, आज कोई पूछे तो जवाब नहीं बदला – ये हँसता हुआ कारवां ज़िंदगी का न पूछो चला है किधर॰॰॰।

कितने पड़ाव आए और गुज़र गये, कितने ही मील पत्थर रास्ते में मिले और नज़रों से ओझल हुये।  इस सफर में हम कहाँ कहाँ से गुज़र गये – देस भी घूमा, दुनिया भी घूमी; सागर, नदियां, पर्वत, वादियाँ, जंगल और सैहरा, रास्ते और गलियाँ, पनघट और खलिहान, बाज़ार भी, मेले भी और अकेले भी – सब कोने छू लिए। कभी रेल में, तो कभी मोटर कार में, कभी घोड़े कि टापों के संग, तो कभी रिक्शे में। कभी बैल कि गाड़ी में घूमे, तो कभी तांगे के हिचकोले खाये। कशतियों में कभी झीलों का झरोखा, और कभी जहाज़ में समुद्र का दीदार किया। साइकल की सैर भी की, और कभी प्लेन से सारी धरती को देखा। और तो और, क्रेन, ट्रक और ट्रैक्टर को भी नहीं छोड़ा।

कभी हरी दर्शन को तड़पते मन देखे, कभी मदीने की दुआएं मांगी।  कभी बंजारों के गीत सुने, और तो फिर कभी सूफी के कलाम। बुद्ध कि शरण में गये तो कभी येशु के दर पे सर झुकाया। कभी सृष्टि के चित्रकार को ढूँढा, और कभी कर्म गति की शिक्षा सुनी। कभी शुक्राने फरमाए उस खुदा की बंदगी में, तो कभी ज़िंदगी से ऊब कर उसे खूब खरी खोटी भी सुनाई।

कभी किसी नाज़नीं से लहंगे कि फरमाइश सुनी, और कभी प्रेमी कि ज़ुबान से चाँद कि उपमाएँ। कभी बरसात ने दिल लुभाया, तो कभी बात बात में मैंने दिल तुझको दिया। कभी गर्मी की धूप से बचने की सलाह देखी, तो कभी बर्फ की सर्दी को दिल की आंच से कम होते देखा।

गोद में बच्चों को सुलाते हुये माँ कि लोरियाँ सुनी, तो कभी बच्चों से माँ के आँचल कि पुकार। नग़में सुने दोस्ती के और ग़ज़लें सुनी इश्क़ की।  मोहब्बत के जलवों से रोशन जन्नत के नज़ारे किए, तो कभी टूटे दिल के नालों ने हमें भी रुलाया।

कभी दिल मचला और झूम के गा उठा – किसान अपनी फसल देख के, फौजी छुट्टी पर घर जाते हुये, इक जवान दिल इश्क़ का इक़रार पा कर, और तो कभी बस इस कायनात की खूबसूरती पर।

कभी दिल रोया और रो कर गाया – भीख मांगते हुये बच्चे, कोई बिछड़ कर जाने लगा, कभी मोहब्बत के धोखे उठाए, और तो कभी किस्मत के थपेड़ों की शिकायत में।

कभी एक चोर की कहानी सुनी, कभी बिक्री वालों से उनकी उम्दा दलीलें सुनी, कभी मेहनतकशों की प्रेरणा भा गई, और तो कभी सड़क पे तमाशों के नज़ारे किए।

हुस्न की जल्वानुमाई देखि, तो कभी हुस्न के एहसान; कभी हुस्न की संगदिली ज़ाहिर हुई, तो कभी सिर्फ शिकवों का ज़िक्र हुआ। फ़लक पे सूरज चाँद और तारों की कहानी सुनी, तो कभी शराब की मस्ती शराबी की जुबानी सुनी।

फूलों से किसी कमसिन के चेहरे को मुक़ाबिल देखा, तो कभी किसी अल्हड़ की लापरवाह चाल से झरनों की उपमा हुई।

कसमें वादे होते देखे साँसों की हद तक, और कभी टूटे वादों के साथ दिल के टुकड़े बिखरते देखे।

कोई जश्न का मौका छूटा नहीं, कोई नाम अछूता रहा नहीं।

कभी धरती और देश के झंडे से बुलंद हुये, तो कभी इंसानी ज़ुल्म से हताश।

कभी शहीदों की कहानियाँ पलटीं, तो कभी भली आत्माओं का दर्शन किया।

सुख की घड़ियाँ, दुख के बादल; हंसी के लम्हे, आँसू की ढलकन; मिलने की खुशी, ना मिलने का ग़म; प्यार का झगड़ा, बेवफाई के ज़ख्म; बारात का बाजा, दिल का राजा; मंदिर का दीपक, खुदा से दुआएं; रिश्तों की संवेदना, और साथ ही वेदना; प्यार का फलसफा, और ज़िंदगी की तालीम।

कभी वो गीत में, कभी नज़्म में, कभी ग़ज़ल में, तो कभी भजन में, कभी ट्विस्ट में तो कभी डिस्को में; कभी क़व्वाली में, तो कभी सहगान में; कभी कविता जैसी लगी, तो कभी कथा जैसी; कभी तुम्हारी छवि दिखी, कभी उसकी; और तो ज़्यादा कहानी अपनी सी लगी।

दस साल। दस साल और पन्द्रह हज़ार उमंगें। रोज़ की नई नवेली। कभी लगता भी है कि पहले सुना था, लेकिन फिर भी लगता है नया सा। कितने सारे भावों की बरसात हुई है, क्या बेशुमार दौलत मिली है – दस साल में। नायाब खजाना है। और सोचो तो, शुरू कहाँ से किया था – “॰॰॰काँटों से दोस्ती कर ली॰॰॰”। मुनासिब ही तो है, ये दौलत काँटों से गुज़र के ही पाते हैं। और तमन्नाएं॰॰॰ उनका तो कहना ही क्या। कुछ मिल जाये, इसकी तो फिक्र कभी थी ही नहीं। बस एक ही बात, एक ही लगन॰॰॰ दिल चाहता है॰॰॰  साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

जी हाँ, दिल चाहता है। जब एक गाना ढूंढ रहा था इस जश्न के लिए, तो मन बहुत घूमने के बाद इस बात पे ठहरा कि एक सफरनामा होना चाहिए, एक गाना जिस में बस सफर हो, कोई मंज़िल न हो। जिसमें बस हमख्यालों का दख़ल हो। जो सब मेरे हमकदम हों, मेरे हमनशीं, मेरे हमज़ुबाँ हों। अपनी यादों और आदतों से वहीं ढूँढता रहा साठ और सत्तर से पहले। इत्तेफाक़ देखिये, मिला तो बखूबी वही जो दिल चाहता है। हाँ ‘दिल चाहता है’ – फिल्म भी वही और नग़मा भी वही। 2001 में जारी हुई ये फिल्म मेंने उन्हीं दिनों में अपने सफरगुज़ारी के दौरान देखी। न जाने क्यों, इस फिल्म से मोहब्बत हो गई। और खास कर के इस गाने से। हल्की सी मस्ती की लहर में हल्का सा ढुलकता सा गाना, सुस्ताता हुआ, आलसी सा गाना, धीरे धीरे बहता जैसे बहार में सुबह कि मीठी सी सबा॰॰॰ लापरवाही में एक प्रतिबिम्बित चिंतन॰॰॰ गाना तो ऐसे मन को भाया के बस।

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

होता है ना कभी कभी ऐसे ही। कुछ ऐसा कहा जाता है दो लफ्जों में, के और कुछ कहने की कसर बाकी रहती नहीं। जो बात मन की है, वो बस इतनी ही मुकम्मल है, जो ऊपर लिखे मिसरों में ब्याँ हो गई – तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम न बीते कभी ये सफर॰॰॰

और कुछ कहना वाजिब नहीं।

इस फिल्म के ज़्यादातर किरदारों को पहली बार देखा था। बहुत सालों बाद एक हिन्दी फिल्म देखी थी शायद। मन को जम गई। 🙂

गीत जावेद अख्तर का लिखा है, संगीत बद्ध किया शंकर-एहसान-लोय कि तिकड़ी ने। गाने वाली आवाज़ शंकर महादेवन की है। स्क्रीन पर ये गाना बैक्ग्राउण्ड में फिल्माया गया। और क्या असरदार फिल्माया गया। गीत ही गीत सुनता है, बाकी सब खामोशी है। एक तुष्टि की, एक पूर्णता की खामोशी है। एक खुशी भरी सुस्ती की खामोशी है॰॰॰ जो दिल चाहता है वो मुझे मिला है॰॰॰ ऐसी खामोशी है

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस, फिर एक और दस बरस॰॰॰ सिलसिलेवार

कभी ना बीतें॰॰॰   चमकीले दिन
हम ना रहें कभी॰॰॰ यारों के बिन

[Author’s Note: Apologies due on many counts, including the sudden and surprising change in the presentation language above. The writing started and then I just couldn’t stop the flow. And so I let it flow. In case there are requests, I can add the English translation also. Regarding the gap in celebration sequence, that story is coming up tomorrow. 🙂 ]

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन
दिन दिन भर हों
प्यारी बातें
झूमें शामें
गायें रातें
मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ
दिल चाहता है
कभी ना बीतें
चमकीले दिन
दिल चाहता है
हम ना रहें कभी यारों के बिन

जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
अपने वास्ते
जगमगाते हैं
झिलमिलाते हैं अपने रास्ते
ये खुशी रहे
रोशनी रहे
अपने वास्ते

मस्ती में रहे डूबा डूबा हमेशा समां
हम को राहों में यूं ही मिलती रहें खुशियाँ

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

दिल चाहता है

कैसा अजब ये सफर है
सोचो तो हर एक ही बेखबर है
उस को जाना किधर है
जो वक़्त आए

क्या दिखाये

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 17
———————————————————————

Some achievements boggle your mind. A few years ago it was 10k song and now its 10 years of this blog. Maybe I should say it bloggles my mind! Terrible puns aside, I apologize for this delayed write up. Some incidents over the last weekend, caused me to tragically lose my phone, and after a remote data erase, miraculously find it again. It felt like a Hindi film honestly, one I would have titled ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ if there hadn’t already been one by that name.

But today I am spurred into re-action as I seemed to be the only one without a post on this occasion despite being named by the fantastic Atul ji as the youngest contributor (though, isn’t that credit long stolen. I remember a 18 yr old writing about amirbai karnataki?) I decided that ‘देर आए पर दुरुस्त आए’ will be my style and I will write a new article and mark my attendance so to speak.

As I read what Atul ji wrote, I reflected on my own journey, from a watcher of movies to being someone who now stands behind the camera for 16 hrs a day and watches the magic happen. I love watching movies for fun even today and that’s how my first watch of anything still is. But my subsequent watches have me looking at individual shots and camera movements, production design and set decor, costuming and makeup, and all these aspects as they come together with the script and dialogue as an experience. I not only appreciate the executive brilliance but also spend time imagining the sight of some poor production guy whose life turned miserable for the shot to be executed.

Of course there are a lot of people who would like to say that movies made earlier are better than current movies but this honestly not true. Especially the 70s-90s, I grew up in the 90s, but I have to have  my nostalgia glasses glued to my face when I see the movies. Else I will start ranting about their problematic portrayals for a few days. Similarly some movies were technically brilliant then but there is some great original work being done today too. Of course like in a podcast by SnG comedy’s Aadar Malik (nephew to Anu Malik and a comedian in his own right) mentioned, (talking about the lack of technical advancement they recorded under in the 70s), “Yeh log ko itna mehnat aur perfection rakhana padta tha, because ek mistake bhi kitna bhari padta, ek do gaana chura liya toh kya hua aisa lagta hai”

My song today is one I picked not just because of its celebratory mood, nor because it has a varied ensemble that resembles us Atulites, but also to appreciate the hard work behind the whole thing. It’s the first song that’s been filmed, and presented in entirely one take in one camera. Our beloved song from ‘Aradhna’ (1969) had multiple cameras and the song from ‘Main Hoon Na’ had cuts from a separate location. This one had neither and you have to appreciate all the work and practice needed for everyone to be exactly in the place they needed to be at every moment whether in focus or out, their high energy throughout and the absolute conviction in co-ordination they had. There is also a very cute shot of Priyanka doing a dance step like an extra with her face looking away as she moved from one side to another for her next cue. The dance is cute and fun and Priyanka and Ranveer make the cutest siblings.

The song is from ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ (2015) which is directed by Zoya Akhtar. and has a whole list of performers. We have Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh as Kabir Mehra, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose, Vikrant Massey, Ridhima Sud, Parmeet Sethi, Dolly Mattdo, Manoj Pahwa, Preeti Mamgain, and a few I couldn’t identify dancing along perfectly in sync. The music is by Shankar ehsaan Loy and the lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. The singers are Shankar Mahadevan, Yashita Sharma, Manish Kumar Tipu, Farhan Akhtar and Sukhwinder Singh.

Enjoy. And congratulations to all

Song – . . . Kar Le Gallaan Goodiyan (Dil Dhadakne Do) (2015) Singers – Yashita Sharma, Manish Kumar Tipu, Farhan Akhtar, Shankar Mahadevan, Sukhwinder Singh, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Shankar Ehsaan Loy

मैं डालूँ ताल पे भंगड़ा
तू भी गिद्दा पा लै
चल ऐसा रंग जमा दें हम
के बने सभी मतवाले

मन कहे मैं ले आऊँ
चाँद और तारे सारे
इन हाथों पर मैं चाँद रखूँ
इस मांग में भर दूँ तारे

हैल्लो
हैल्लो
तू फ्लोरस् पे जब है आई
ये लो
ये लो
बड़ी सॉलिड मस्ती छाए
हैल्लो
हैल्लो
टू मच है तुमने लगाई
ये लो
ये लो
कंट्रोल करो मेरे भाई

धक-धक धक-धक धड़के ये दिल
छन छन बोलें अमृतसरी चूड़ियाँ
रात बड़ी है मस्तानी
ओ दिलबर जानी

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 2
———————————————————————

On the occasion of completing 10 years of the blog on July 19, 2018, I heartily congratulate Atul ji and his musical bandwagon for attaining a very important milestone.

The blog started with the intent of posting at least one song a day. At the time of joining the blog in July 2011, I felt as to how Atul ji could make a commitment of posting one song a day. With family responsibilities, a transferable job with chances of getting posted at not-so-internet-friendly places, the target of one song a day was not so easy as it looks. To my pleasant surprise, the target of posting one song a day (actually more) on the blog has been, more or less, adhered to with a punctuality of more than 98 per cent. My assessment is that there may be, on average, not more than 10 days in a year when songs were not posted on the blog. But the team of regular (and irregular) contributors to the blog have more than compensated by an average posting of nearly 4 songs per day during the last 10 years.

I got to know from the special posts written by Atul ji on the occasions of the celebrations of blog’s anniversaries and milestones that during the initial period of the blog, the response was not as per his expectation. At that time, as I understand from his write-ups, Raja ji’s encouraging words inspired him not to lose heart and to do his karma. Later on, as I have witnessed, the visitors to the Blog increased manifold. Presently, the number of visitors to the Blog have crossed well over 10.5 million (more than one crore). Coupled with the total number of films and songs covered, this blog is the primus inter blog (first among the blogs) covering Hindi films and non-film songs.

I consider myself very fortunate to be associated with the musical journey of the blog for the last 7 years. Based on my experience, I would say that one of the greatest contributions of the blog has been the creation of interest in Hindi film songs of pre-golden era period. When I joined the blog in July 2011, I found it interesting, amongst others, Arun ji’s well-documented informative posts about the Hindi films and their artists, especially of the pre-golden era period. I do not think that information on many of the films and artists covered in such articles is available in any other blogs on Hindi films.

On the occasion of a decade of this musical Blog, I have chosen one of my favourite songs from Hindi films of post-2000 period. This song has been my inspirational song during my Himalayan treks. The song is from the film ‘Swades’ (2004). I am reproducing the full mukhda of the song to bring out the relevance of these inspirational lines in the context of the musical journey of the blog:

yunhi chala chal raahi
yunhi chala chal raahi
kitni haseen hai ye duniya
bhool saare jhamele
dekh phoolon ke mele
badi rangeen hai ye duniya

Apparently this song is also a ‘journey song’. The hero, Shahrukh Khan is on a journey in a self-driven caravan (camping vehicle) to locate his Nanny in one of the remote villages in India. On the way, he is joined by a faqeer (Makarand Deshpande) to help him find the correct direction to his destination (he has been intentionally misguided in the earlier part of the film 🙂 ). What starts as a song being heard from the radio on vehicle’s dash board, it becomes a voice over to Shahrukh Khan (playback by Udit Narayan) and Makarand Deshpande (playback by Kailash Kher). Hariharan’s voice is used at the start of the song for lines heard from the dash board, and a line in-between the song and towards the end. The song is written by Javed Akhtar which is set to music by AR Rahman. In an interview to ‘The Hindu’ which appeared in its December 25, 2010 issue, AR Rahman had revealed that the tune of this song was originally composed for one of the songs of ‘Lagaan’ (2001) but it was not used.

As stated earlier, some parts of the lyrics of the song are relevant to the journey of our musical caravan ‘driven’ by Atul ji in which many like-minded persons are fellow-travellers. Just like the faqeer in the film shows the direction of the destination to Shahrukh Khan in the picturisation of the song, Sudhir ji has been performing more or less, the same role in our musical caravan apart from providing other value additions. Other fellow travellers in our musical caravan have been contributing in their own ways to facilitate the blog with its intent.

Any journey through any form of conveyance has a final destination. But our musical caravan is a journey sans destination, although during the journey, there are intermediate destinations (milestones). So, for our musical caravan, journey becomes more important than the destination.

I have personally interacted with Atul ji only once and may be a couple of times through e-mails. But with my 7 years of association with blog, I feel that I know him through blog more than my interactions with him. Two lines of Allama Iqbal from his nazm, ‘Saaqi Nama’ perhaps sum up my impression about Atul ji in the context of his musical journey through the Blog:

bahut usne dekhe hain past o buland
safar usko manzil se badh kar pasand

He has seen many low and high (of this blog’s journey)
But for him, the (musical) journey is far preferable than any destination

I wish Atul ji many more happy and enchanting years of the musical journey of this blog.

Hullo Atuldom

I know of two movies that go by the name ‘Duniya’. One was in 1968 which had Dev Anand and Vyjayantimala in the lead and the second ‘Duniya’ (1984) had Dev Anand’s contemporary Dilip Kumar with Ashok Kumar in central roles around which Rishi Kapoor and Amrita Singh’s characters were built.

The ‘Duniya’ that came in 1968 was directed by T Prakash Rao and had a lot of popular songs like “Dooriyan Nazdeekiyan”; “Falsafa Pyar Ka Tum Kya Jaano”; the fun song “Tu Hi Meri Laxmi Tu Hi Meri Chhaaya” etc. SH Bihari, Gopaldas ‘Neeraj’, Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri were the lyricists and Shankar-Jaikishan were the music directors.

On going through the blog, I found that one more ‘Duniya’ is listed, which released in 1948 and had C Ramchandra for composer. I don’t have any knowledge about this movie other than the fact that on this blog all the songs from this movie are covered. For that matter even the 1968 movie has all its songs on the blog.

So now that brings us to ‘Duniya’ which released in 1984. It was produced by Yash Johar of Dharma Productions and directed by Ramesh Talwar of ‘Baseraa’ and ‘Doosra Aadmi’ fame. Its story, screenplay & dialogues are credited to Javed Akhtar. It had an impressive cast headed by Ashok Kumar and Dilip Kumar (as I have said earlier) ably supported by their colleagues of the 1950s and 1960s viz: Pran, Pradeep Kumar, and Prem Chopra. Saira Banu made a special appearance, her sole release after she retired in 1976/77. (One of her movies with Vinod Mehra as co-star, completed in 1976 released in 1988.) ‘Duniya’ also had Amrish Puri to complete the trio who wreak havoc in the life of Mohan Kumar (Dilip Kumar) which leads to the family getting separated, wife dying etc.  This means that the movie belonged to the action/ drama/ revenge genre. This movie had RD Burman’s music for songs penned by Javed Akhtar.

There is a re-run by the satellite channel Zee Classic of it programme ‘Classic Legends with Javed Akhtar’ which is basically a guided biography of legends who gave Hindi film industry some iconic movies and music. I happened to see an episode of this where RD Burman’s music was showcased. In the course of the programme Javed Akhtar has mentioned a song from ‘Duniya’ (1984).

As we all know a song is made when poetry is set to tune in a manner that it can be sung. There are times when the reverse can also happen. A musician thinks of a tune and has a song written to go with it. Javed Akhtar spoke of a song where RD had a tune for which the mukhda (opening stanza) would end in a tune that follows the tune of “Tanhaayi Mein Tadpaane Ko” from SD Burman’s song “Jeewan Ke Safar Mein Raahi” from ‘Munim ji’ (1955).  He was telling it was almost as if RD was paying tribute to his father.

Today on RD’s 78th birth anniversary I think we should have this particular song. ‘Duniya’ was not that successful and I don’t think any of its songs are in public memory. Even I remembered it only when I heard Javed Akhtar mention it. Everytime a movie flops, it takes its music of the movie down with it. I think this is what happened to the songs of this film.

So here is the song which was written by Javed Akhtar for a tune set by RD Burman inspired by his father’s tune. It is sung by Kishore Kumar to Rishi Kapoor’s lip-syncing. We can also see Amrish Puri overseeing the actions of Rishi Kapoor and Javed Khan, the fellow who walks away with Amrita’s bag.

lab na hilen to aankho se kaam le

Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

pyaar jisne paaya hai,
wahi dil phool jaisa khila
pyaar galti hai
pyaar dhokha hai
pyaar dhalti chhaaya hai,
dekho phir na karna gila
oo oo
pyaar zindagi
pyaar har khushi
pyaar jisne paaya hai,
wahi dil phool jaisa khila
pyaar galti hai
pyaar dhokha hai
pyaar dhalti chhaaya hai,
dekho phir na karna gila
pyaar hi dhadakano ki kahaani hai,
pyaar hai haseen daastaan
pyaar ashqon ki deta nishaani hai,
pyaar mein hai chain kahaan
pyar ki baat jisne na maani hai
uski na to zameen hai na hai aasmaan
naujawaano
baat maano
kabhi kisi se
na pyaar karna
hey que sera sera sera
jo bhi ho so ho
hamein pyaar ka ho aasra
phir chaahe jo ho
hey que sera sera sera
jo bhi ho so ho
hamein pyaar ka ho aasra
phir chaahe jo ho

pyaar jaise hai purab-pashchim
pyaar hai uttar-dakkhin,
yahaan hai pyaar hi har disha
pyaar rog hai
pyaar dard hai
pyaar tode dil ek din
ye hi hai pyaar ka silsila
oo oo
pyaar jaise hai purab-pashchim
pyaar hai uttar-dakkhin,
yahaan hai pyaar hi har disha
pyaar rog hai
pyaar dard hai
pyaar tode dil ek din
ye hi hai pyaar ka silsila
pyaar se hi to rangeen jeevan hai
pyaar se hi dil hai jawaan
pyaar kaanto ka jaise koi ban hai
pyaar se hi gam ka samaan
pyaar se jaane kyon tum ko uljhan hai
pyaar to saari duniya pe hai meharbaan
naujawaano
baat maano
naujawaano

hey que sera sera sera
jo bhi ho so ho
hamein pyaar ka ho aasra
phir chaahe jo ho
hey que sera sera sera
jo bhi ho so ho
hamein pyaar ka ho aasra
phir chaahe jo ho
