Hullo to all in Atuldom

26th October is a special day in my life. It is the birthdate of two people who are very important to me personally. One was my first playmate, friend etc… my sister- a person who I cannot live with and without. I cannot live with her as she is in Mumbai but then both my sisters are in Mumbai and both are important for me forever; and it is the birthday of one of them.

The second person whose birthday it is, is a fairly new entrant in my life. He is a fan of Rafi but loves Kishore Kumar just as much. We can find him appreciating “main zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya” at the same time as “Koi humdum na raha koi sahara na raha”. Is as much a fan of style icon Dev Anand as much as Rajesh Khanna. And I know for a fact that he loves old classic Indian (Bollywood) movies as much as the typical masala fair that used to be dished out in the 70s and 80s. But because he loves Rajesh Khanna does not mean he dislikes Amitabh Bachchan- he learnt to appreciate Big B towards end 70s. He is a fan of all the legends of HFM like Majrooh, Sahir, Shakeel Badayuni etc, (this is only a sample list, please ask the birthday boy for the complete list ??) and has a soft corner for Urdu poetry in film music. Hope I am not wrong in my analysis.

He is a typical Indian in the sense he loves cricket and HFM in equal measure. These days one finds him inactive or as he has said in one of his recent posts and I quote, “I go through these periods of high-frequency posting to nil-posting every now and then. A cricketing analogy for this behaviour would be the equivalent of hitting 3 sixes and then playing out 3 maiden overs. A coach would frown at this inconsistency.”

He is a spectator as far as group activities on Atuldom’s WhatsApp group is concerned but decently active on twitter. He feels many issues in India needs rectification because AFTER ALL HE IS AN INDIAN even if he spends part of the year overseas- pardes. I am sure he will like this dialogue of Raj Kapoor’s “Hindu ko ram ram, musalmman ko salaam, Christian ko good morning aur sardarji ko Sat Sri Akal! Mera joota hain japaani, yeh patloon englistaani, sarpe laal topi roosi phir bhi DIL HAI HINDUSTANI”. don’t exactly know if this is his attire in pardes but he indeed has a solah anne khara Hindustani dil.

He is one of the many “70s ke bachche” that are regular ASAD followers. I am sure all the regular followers of the blog have understood it is our dearest Rajaji’s birthday today.

Normally I am an on-the-spot writer but this time around I must have mentally written 5-6 posts and discarded a few songs that would accompany this special post. I have not written anything about his comfort level with the various software available that help trim videos etc. But that can come in some other post.

I hope he likes the song that I felt describes him truly or for that matter the majority of Indians. It is written by ex-script writer and a rather modern lyricist- Jaaved Akhtar, music is by Jatin Lalit and sung by Udit Narayan. It is from the 2000 release “Phir Bhi Dil Hindustani” and hope it is one of the songs he has heard. 🙂

So wishing the first farmaisher of the blog, a very happy birthday. May he have all the fun and joy that music has the potential to impart to listeners. Happy Birthday Rajaji.

Chorus

Lyrics

hum logon ko samajh sako toh
samjho dilbar jaani
jitna bhi tum samjhoge
utni hogi hairaani
hum logon ko samajh sako toh
samjho dilbar jaani
jitna bhi tum samjhoge
utni hogi hairaani
apni chhatri tumko de den
kabhi jo barse paani
kabhi naye packet mein
bechen tumko cheez puraani
phir bhi dil hai hindustani, (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai hindustani (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai hindustani (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani (ooooooo)

lalala lalalala
lalala lalalala

thhode anaadi hain thhode khilaadi
ruk ruk’ke chalti hai apni gaadi
thhode anaadi hain thode khilaadi
ruk ruk’ke chalti hai apni gaadi
hame pyaar chahiye
aur kuchh paise bhi
hum aise bhi hain
hum hain vaise bhi
hum logon ko samajh sako toh
samjho dilbar jaani
ulti seedhi jaisi bhi hai,
apni yahi kahaani
thhodi hum mein hoshiyaari hai,
thhodi hai nadaani
thhodi hum mein sachchaai hai,
thhodi beimaani
phir bhi dil hai hindustani,
phir bhi dil hai hindustani
phir bhi dil hai hindustani,
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani

aaaaa aaaaaa
aaaaa aaaaaaa

aankhon mein kuch aansoon hai kuch sapne hain
aansoon aur sapne donon hi apne hain
aankhon mein kuch aansoon hai kuch sapne hain
aansoon aur sapne donon hi apne hain
dil dukha hai lekin
toota toh nahin hai
ummeed ka daaman
chhoota toh nahin hai
hum logon ko samajh sako toh
samjho dilbar jaani
thhodi majboori hai
lekin thhodi hai manmaani
thodi tu tu main main hai
aur thhodi kheencha taani
hum mein kaafi baatein hai,
jo lagti hain deewaani
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai hindustani, (ooooooo)
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani (ooooooo)
dil hai hindustani,
phir bhi dil hai Hindustani
phir bhi dil hai hindustani
phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Year- 1999. Months- June/ July. Region- Snow-clad Himalayas. Kashmir to be more precise. Kargil- Dras sector to be even more exact. Aim- to control the Siachen Glacier by establishing military outposts on the surrounding mountains ridges. This has often resulted in military skirmishes in the 1980s and tensions only escalated in the 1990s. In an attempt to defuse the situation, both countries signed the Lahore Declaration in February 1999, promising to provide a peaceful and bilateral solution to the Kashmir conflict.

One thing about life that amazes me is its unpredictability. Let me explain. See when I got the email from Sudhirji in April 2014 informing me about the approaching 10K milestone I had decided to send as many songs as possible to Atul for reaching 10000 as soon as possible. And in right earnest I sent 4 songs over a week in my (personal) “March unto 10000” mission. And I must say Atul was good to me by posting all of them instantly. Then came my unexpected tour of Delhi; and I took a break from my list of romantic songs and sent a Delhi based song. This is one incident that proves that we plan something and we end up doing something else.

There have been Hindi movies on the theme of actual wars fought by Indian Defence forces post independence, with semi fictional narratives woven around those wars. The first one that left lasting impact was Chetan Anand’s “ Haqeeqat”, based on 1962 Indo- China war.

In this movie theere was a very touching Mohammad Rafi song Main ye soch kar uske dar se uthaa thaa that brought out the trauma of soldiers living far away from their beloved.

Wishing all followers of ASAD a very Happy Diwali… I know the festival of lights is over but the schools are yet to reopen after the Diwali Holidays. So the spirit of Diwali is still there in the air.

Quiz time. What is the result of the marriage of an exceptional script writer- lyricist- poet with another script and story writer who was also a child star to add? And what happens if one adds a small amount of talented step mother whose own family is full of literary giants?

One thing that is common among all of us who follow this blog or films is that we are all fans of one or other star be it an actor or music director or lyricist or film maker or singer. Right? Now what happens if we have the advantage of being in the film making business itself? We get an opportunity to showcase our love for our favourites. As today’s birthday girl Farah Khan had.

SONGS FROM ARTISTE NAME FILMS…..Song No. 8
————————————————

Today’s song is from film Zubeidaa-2000. It is sung by Alka Yagnik and the MD is A R Rahman.

Zubeidaa was a film (one of the only 2 such films in India ), made on the life of actress Zubeida, who operated during 1937 to 1949. This Zubeida is NOT the Alam Ara fame Zubeida. That Zubeida had left films in 1935,after marrying a very rich Jahagirdar-Raja Dhanraj Gir ji from Hyderabad (Deccan).

Purandara Dasa (148O- 1564) who is regarded as the father of Carnatic music was born in Karnataka. I find it somewhat paradoxical that Karnataka, the birthplace of the father of Carnatic music is also the birthplace of some of the most distinguished vocalists of Hindustani classical music. Most of them were born in the North Karnataka region. The prominent Hindustani vocalists from North Karnataka were Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (Gadag), Pandit Kumar Gandharv (Belgaum), Pandit Mallikarjun Mansur (Mansur, Dharwad), Sawai Gandharv (Dharwad), Gangubai Hangal (Dharwad), Shobha Gurtu (Belgaum), Pandit Dinkar Kaikini (Kaikini, Uttar Kannada) etc.
