It can be seen from the table of 1973 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 138 songs in 60 movies released in 1973.

92 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies to 1973 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 46 songs that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 34 movies of 1973 are already covered in the blog. So 46 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 26 movies of 1973 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1973 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Agni Rekha”(1973).

“Agni Rekha”(1973) was directed by Mahesh Kaul for Mel Kaul Films, Bombay. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Shadra, Bindu, Durga Khote, Helen, Asrani, Sajjan, Aarti, Lalita Kumari, Janki Das, Chandrima Bhaduri, Smita, Dinesh Sharma, Yashodhara Katju, K S Sengar, Afzal Khan, Radheshyam, Surendra Kaul, Pal Mahendra, Bunty, Kumud Tripathi, Harindranath Chattopadhyay etc, ith special appearances by Chaand Usmani and Suresh Chatwal in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog so far. Lata Mangeshkar has sung in four of these songs. One song from the movie (which had Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in it) has been covered in the past.

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Agni Rekha”(1973). This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on a lady who could be the leading lady of the movie, viz Sharda. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can see Sanjeebv Kumar among the audience.

This is a song that I had heard during its days ithout being aware of its details. The song subsequently got forgotten ith time. This song is undoubtedly a forgotten gem.


Song-Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari main kaise uthhaaun banwaari(Agni Rekha)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
ho o o
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
tum to ho brij desh ke raja
tum to ho brij desh ke raja
main ik durbal naari
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari

halki phulki preet ki matki
ho to vo main uthhaa loon
jis gaagar mein prem ka saagar
us ko kaise sambhaaloon
dhoondh lo jaa ke ae
ho o
dhoondh lo jaa ke kisi panghat par
aur koi panihaari ee
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
ho o
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari

If you search in google for ‘history of post cards in India’ top of the results yields this result;

In July 1879, the Post Office of India introduced a quarter anna postcard that could be posted from one place to another within British India. This was the cheapest form of post provided to the Indian people to date and proved a huge success. … The postcard facility continues to this date in independent India.

Regulars on the blog are aware of how some members of this blog are fond of talking about our social institutions or our public transports and communication, like railways and post departments specifically.
Actually, it would not be wrong to say that some members like me are madly in love with the railways and postal departments in our country. And why not, both the railways and postal departments have their presence all over the country and these services also play major roles in nation building and national integration. I have a BIG nostalgia associated with both of these services.

***
I remember in my childhood days I was, (even now I am), very much fascinated with the postal services, their stationery. The overall atmosphere in a ‘post-office’ have always fascinated me.

A ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was very much popular and the most preferred one to send letters among families and friends, and others. Due to my interest in books and magazines I was frequently using it for getting various publications.

I used to order books through VPP and sometimes even if I could not buy books, I would ask for the ‘list of publications’ from various publishers. We needed to send only a ‘post card’ and in return there would be an envelope carrying printed list with printed pictures of some of the books. That would give me immense pleasure.

I was also having my library containing story books and magazines for children to read mainly during summer vacations.

The simple ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was used for many things like conveying important messages or urgent messages, as it was said that the post-cards were delivered faster than the ‘inland letter’ and ‘envelopes.
My Grand Father staying at Akola (i.e., 25 kms from Paras) was always using post-card to send us letters. And it was the same with most other people.

Years back I had pursued my correspondence studies through IGNOU wherein all the study materials were delivered by post and all communication was through posts only. So, one can guess how close the post services are to my heart. 😊

I do not remember anyone raising any ‘privacy violation issues’ those days for ‘post-cards’. I vividly remember that a ‘postman’ would never read your letters unless requested by those who could not read. They would make it a point to handover the letters to the ‘addressee’ and to no one else.

***

After coming back from Kenya in Dec’2019, I got to visit the post office here in Vadodara many times particularly for dispatch of my daughter’s online shop products and other communications. I noticed how the department has been now given a modernized look and we can also see attractive guidelines and information painted on the walls giving it a ‘super-market’ type look.

But I also noticed someting that has not changed over the years. It is a one iron-box used for storing ‘stamps’ (a box little big than or similar to a metal school box of those days) and the ‘sorting room’ or ‘chamber’ having wooden partition separating it from general office.

Another change that I noticed is in the price of the post card, inland letter and envelope. Now we have to pay fifty paise for a post card.

I have a vague recollection that I have seen post cards of ten paise or five paise as well ! May be when I was a child, I must have seen them some with my ‘stamp-collecting’ friends.

Slowly and gradually After the advent of mobile phones and many modes of faster communication the ‘postal modes’ has Slowly and gradually taken the back-seat.

Recently for the sake of nostalgia I bought one piece each of ‘post card’, inland letter and envelope’.


***
What we discussed above is all good one side of the ‘coin’ (or post-card I should say) including happy memories and nostalgia.

On the other side there is another side. Now people do not find time to write letters as they are ‘busy’ in life. Sometimes it can even create misunderstandings between two close friends, where lack of response from either side can strain their relations.

People close to you or even not so close to you always have expectations. And there are some people who are not at all punctual like others, to return a call or a reply to a letter and reciprocate with same zeal and enthusiasm. It may be inadvertentand not deliberatel, but not responding for whatever reason may affect our relations with others.

As an example, it is my habit even now to call each and every friend that I am in contact with, even if they do not reciprocate with the same enthusiasm (I expect somebody should also given me a call and give me a pleasant surprise ).

I have noticed that nowadays people will send you friend requests, emails, WhatsApp messages or use all kind of social networks. On the other hand they generally avoid face to face conversation or the joy of meeting a person and giving him (or her) a hug (😊). In older days people would jump at the opportunity of meeting each other (I mean jump with joy 😊).

Communicating with our near and dear ones is so cheap and affordable, still there are some who cannot find time to communicate with others.

In older days, such people would be described as ‘arey yaar wo to pandrah paise ka ek post card bhi nahin bhejta hai’ or ‘kam se kam pandrah paise ka ek card hi post kar dete Bhai’, ‘itne dinon se tumhaari koyi khabar hi nahin aayi, pandrah paise ka card bhi nahin kharid sakte the kya, aisi bhi kya kanjusi’😊 (I have still maintained to keep the conversation in sophisticated language … and not using dialects 😊)

After remonstating thus, the long lost friends would readily forgive you and give you benefit of doubt in view of the various reasons given by you for responding. And after a little good natured quarrel everything would be fine among the aggrived and the aggriever.

What about someone who is in love with you and has ‘nyochhawar’ed’ (slang?) oneself on you, she or he will definitely say what the lady in today’s song is saying …

I will not repeat it here instead let us listen to this in today’s song …

Jayshree T is performing this song from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Ahinsaa’. We can see Ranjeet and others in the picturization of this mujra song.

“Ahinsaa-1979” was directed by Chand for ‘Ashwin Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Shiv Kumar.

Story of this movie was written by Chand and K.B. Pathak and dialogues were written by Jainendra Jain. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. It had Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Prem Nath, Ranjeet, Nirupa Roy, Alka, Kamini Kaushal, Rajendra Nath, Jayshree T., Jairaj, Trilok Kapoor, Tun Tun, Kundan, Mohan Shery, Bhagwan, Romeo, Jankidas, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Master Raju, Shiv Kumar, Keshav Rana, Rajan Haksar, Narendra Pathak, Major Anand, Ranveer Raj, Hiralal and others. Om Shivpuri, Dev Kumar, Shakti Kapoor, Shyamlee make a friendly appearance in this movie. Asrani make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had four songs. Two were written by Rajkavi Tulsi and one each by Ram Bharadwaj and Anjaan.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Anand Kumar C., and Badri Prasad (mentioned in HFGK not in the movie titles) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.
Music of this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.06.1979.

let us enjoy this rocking(😊) mujra song dedicated to the lovely ‘post-cards’ what they were in the seventies – ‘khat, pandrah paise waalaa’. Just out of curiosity I counted and noted that the word ‘pandrah paise waalaa’ appears ‘sixteen’ times in the song…

With today’s song this movie “Ahinsaa-1979” makes its debut on the blog. (It also serves another purpose of bringing ‘movies with same title on the blog’. We already have “Ahinsaa-1947” on the blog.

I have not watched today’s movie so can’t say much about its storyline but we can get idea of the story of this movie from the following dedication in titles;

‘This movie is dedicated to all those criminals and dacoits who surrendered themselves to the law with the inspiration of Loknayak Shri. Jayaprakash Narayan’

I had come across the today’s song a few months ago when I was looking for ‘Kalyanji-Anandji’ composed songs.
On going through other songs of this movie I find only song sounding familiar to me which is ‘Yaar mera rab ho gaya’ only. I was curious to know about the other songs so I listened to them and found today’s song as an interesting 😊 song.

Let us now listen to today’s song. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Ram Bharadwaj and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

A celebration of 100 years of Sahir Ludhianvi – his 700th song being posted on our blog.

A hundred years today. Being celebrated by the 700th post on our blog.

Sahir Ludhianvi – the “. . . Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, who would be actually “. . . Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, being relevant for all times, and responsive to all the pitfalls and tragedies of the human experience. But then also, never to be discounted for romanticism a la “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan. . .” and “Yoon To Hamne Laakh Haseen Dekhe Hain“, or even as “Phir Na Keeje Meri Gustaakh Nigaahi Ka Gila“, or the upbeat strings of “Mere Labon Pe Dekho Aaj Bhi Taraane Hain. . .“, or even the most in depth portrayal of the bhakti (devotion) sentiment, as in “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyaam Saanwre“, and “Tum Bansi Ho Main Taan, Ham Tum Do Nahin” and even more intense in “Aaj Sajan Mohey Ang Laga Lo. . .“.

Yes, it is the poet who is Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar, touching all the facets of experiences of life, from the time when a child is pining for the moon as a toy, and all the way to the derelict conclusion of the human life as in “Lo Apna Jahaan Duniyawaalo, Hum Is Duniya Ko Chhod Chale“.

Sahir Sb seemed to have an affinity for the phrase ‘pal do pal’. We hear these words in ‘Railway Platform’ (1957) –

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara, Pal Do Pal Ki Yaari
Aaj Ruke To Kal Karni Hai Chalne Ki Tayaari
Basti Basti Parvat Parvat. . .

Repeated in ‘Mehmaan’ (1974)

. . .
Pal Do Pal Dhoom Machha Ley
Yoon Mar Mat Mar Mat Yaaraa

In ‘Zameer’ (1975), he would write

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal
Do Pal. . .

Then again in ‘Burning Train’ (1980), reminding us of the shades of ‘Railway Platform’

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara
Pal Do Pal Ke Yaaraane Hain. . .

And yes, ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ (1976) of course,

Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon
Pal Do Pal Meri Kahaani Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Hasti Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Jawaani Hai

In ‘Pyaasa’ of 1957, he had posed three very profound questions in the lines of poetry he wrote for that film. At a personal level, the query was “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The Jin Ke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila“. On the plane of social strife and stigma he had asked “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“. And then, the ultimate question of life that he has posed is “Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“. The film gains its depths, attempting to interpret and address these questions. And more than sixty years later, these questions continue to haunt the discerning mind. Timeless queries, one would say, but still, crystallized for once in words by Sahir.

There is this one incisive insight that the poet possesses, or maybe the other way round, this incisive insight possesses the poet. Each verse, each song that he has penned in his lifetime, goes well beyond the simple words that he wrote. His words, his lines offer you, nay they force you to take a pause and think – what profundity, in just this simple arrangement of 8, 10 or 15 words. And the thought will stay in the mind for much much longer that what it took to simply read the words for once.

This life, ‘zindagi’ – the incisive insight brings out so many facets that the poet examined it. In 1954, he penned the following for ‘Taxi Driver’

Ae Meri Zindagi
Aaj Raat Jhoom Le, Aasmaan Ko Choom Le
Kis Ko Pata Hai Kal Aaye Ke Na Aaye. . .

For ‘Munim Ji’in 1955, he wrote

Ek Taraf Haseen Jalwe Hain
Ik Taraf Jawaani
Zindagi Hai Zinda. . .

In 1958, his words for ‘Light House’ are

Tang Aa Chuke Hain Kashmakash-e-Zindagi Se Hum
Thukra Na Den Jahaan Ko Kahin Be-dilee Se Hum

With 1960 came ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ and the promising words are

Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhoolegi Wo Barsaat Ki Raat. . .

1962, and it is ‘Hum Dono’, with the lines

Main Zindagi Ka Sath Nibhata Chala Gaya. . .

With ‘Aaj Aur Kal’, 1963, ‘Zindagi’ was a most depressing thought.

Maut Kitni Bhi Sangdil Ho Magar
Zindagi Se To Meharbaan Hogi

‘Chandi Ki Deewaar’ and 1964, another depressing sentiment

Kahin Qaraar Na Ho Aur Kahin Khushi Na Miley
Hamaare Baad Kisi Ko Ye Zindagi Na Mile

And then, a refreshing thought in 1965, with these lines in ‘Shagoon’,

Ham Hain Maayoos Magar Itne Bhi Maayoos Nahin
Ek Na Ek Din To Yah Ashqon Ki Ladi Tootegi
Ek Na Ek Din To Chhatenge Ye Ghamon Ke Baadal
Ek Na Ek Din To Ujaale Ki Kiran Phootegi
Zindagi Zulm Sahi Zabr Sahi Gham Hi Sahi

On to 1969, and the life is a happenstance – film is ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’,

Zindagi Ittefaaq Hai
Kal Bhi Ittefaaq Thi Aaj Bhi Ittefaaq Hai

And in the same film, we have the sobering sentiment as,

Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Khushi Ke Phool Bhi
Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Ghamon Ki Dhool Bhi
Zindagi Kabhi Yaqeen Kabhi Gumaan Hai
Har Qadam Pe Teraa-Meraa Imtahaan Hai
Zindagi Ke Rang Kai Re Saathi Re. . .

Come 1975, and it is ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’; the refrain once again is downbeat as in

Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuchh Itna Qareeb Se
Chehre Tamaam Lagne Lage Hain Ajeeb Se

But then it is ‘Zameer’ in the same year that bounces back to say,

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal Do Pal
Ise Khona Nahin Kho Ke Rona Nahin

Plus a more sobering thought, from the same film,

Tum Bhi Chalo Hum Bhi Chalen
Chalti Rahe Zindagi
Naa Zameen Manzil Naa Aasmaan
Zindagi Hai Zindagi

With ‘Kaala Pathar’ in 1979 came the motorcycling song that infused the bubbling spirit of freedom and hope.

Jaate Huye Qadmon Se
Aate Huye Qadmon Se
Bhari Rahegi Raahguzar
Jo Ham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ik Raastaa Hai Zindagi
Jo Tham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ye Qadam Kisi Muqaam Pe
Jo Jam Gaye To Kuchh Nahin

Coming to the song being presented today. It is a wonder that I thought of, as I listened to this song today after a very long time. Yes, a child pining for getting the moon to play with. And with the ‘बाल हठ’ (a child’s obduracy), it is an overwhelming experience to be able to convince the child and talk it out of its impossible wish. As I listened, I am reminded of the story from the Ramayan – the passage where Ram, as a toddler, one day gets into His mind that he wants the moon to play with. No amount of coaxing and appeasing and promises by the parents and others can talk Him out of His insistence. And the accompanying wailing and waving of arms is making Kaushalya and Dashrath very worried and uncomfortable. Rajguru, Vashishth ji is summoned for help. He arrives and says, well, if the child is wanting the moon, give Him the moon. The parents are confused, and ask Vashishth ji, as to how to make that happen.

Rajguru asks for a large dish (‘परात’) with raised edges. The dish is placed in front of the child, and is filled with water. Instantly, the likeness of the moon is reflected in the water in the dish. So Vashishth ji beckons the child and points to the reflection and says, here is the moon, now play. So the toddler Ram, seeing that the moon is now so close, puts His hands in water, but swish and splash as He may, He is not able to hold in hand, the reflection that can be seen with the eyes. But the splashing play pleases Him, and the wailing is forgotten.

Sahir Sb is addressing the same situation in this song, likely that the child is insisting on visiting ‘Chanda Mama’. And as is the rule in Hindi films – well, you have a song to for a three-minute-disposition-of-a-difficult-situation. The lines in the song are actually trying to reason with the child, based on some simple logic statements, that aim at convincing the child that they (the three bad men in the film) are much better suited to be ‘Mamma’ to the child than the distant moon.

So there is arguments like, hads ‘Chanda Mama’ ever visited you? Has ‘Chanda Mama’ ever invited you to his place. He just sits in the sky and creates a fake uproar. Where as we (the three bad men in the film) are with you every day. We play with you, we take care of you and bring you toys. And so, as is wont in Hindi films, all it takes is three minutes of music and song to change the mind of any individual in any situation. Start the song, and you can time the mind conversion almost exactly to 3 minutes (maybe plus a few more seconds).

The video of this song is not available, but it most certainly is picturized on Geeta (role played by Baby Rani) who plays the upset little child, wanting the moon, and the three bad men – Govind, Joseph and Nazir (roles played by Pran, Ajit and Anwar Hussain respectively). The singing voice for the three bad men are back played by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar. The singing voice is not identified for a few lines at the end of the song, which are apparently lip synced by the child.

The film is ‘Nanha Farishta’ from 1969. A film by T Prakash Rao, is a touching tale of three criminals whose lives are transformed by the love a small child girl they have kidnapped. The star cast of this film includes Pran, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Baby Rani, Padmini, Pandharibai, Balraj Sahni, Johnny Walker, Suresh, Mukri, Raj Mehra, Sunder, Maruti, and Prem Kumar.

The film has four songs, all penned by Sahir Sb. The music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Two of the four songs are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here, as the centenary celebration of this gifted poet. And we also add the celebration of adding the 700th song by Sahir Sb to our blog.

A very refreshingly joyful song – yes, Sahir Sb had the versatility to pen such gems also.

Listen and enjoy.

It can be seen from the table of 1970 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 130 songs in 54 movies released in 1970. 86 of these songs are already covered in the blog.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 movies of 1970 are already covered in the blog. So 44 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 24 movies of 1970 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1970 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970).

“Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) was produced by Ananthaswami and directed by P Madhvan for Screen Gems, Madras. The movie had Hema Malini, Ajay Sahni, Om Prakash, Bobby, Jagdeep, Suresh, Maruti, David, Bindu, Shabnam, Tuntun, Birbal, Padmini, Manmohan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far. Lata Mangeshkar had sung two solo songs in it. One song sung by her has been represented in the blog so far.

Here is another Lata Mangeshkar song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on a child artist. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. My guess from the starcast is that she is Bobby.

arrey kab tak kheloon pyaar ka khel
pass karo ya fail

“Tamanna”(1969) was directed by K P Atma for K S Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Shashikala, Agha, Nazima, Deven Verma, Nazeer Hussain, Sulochana, Sajjan, Achla Sachdev, Asit Sen, Krishn Dhaan, Rasheed Khan, Narbada Shankar, Kesri, Khairaati, Vimal Raj, Moolchand, Radheshyam, Sayyad, Md Ibrahim, Fatima, Santosh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. To of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tamanna”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Rafi and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The O P Nayyarish Punjabi dance music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Mala Sinha, Biswajeet and others. It is a song that deserved to be better knon, but it ended up as an obscure song from an qually obscure movie.

Unnoticeably, ith this song, Kalyanji Anandji complete their 600th song in the blog as music directors.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 117 #Happy Birthday Reena Roy
———————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Karmayogi’. I was longing to share a song from this movie and launch this movie on the blog since long (actually for many years now 😊).

However, the song I had earlier planned to share is not today’s song, but a different song from this movie.

Today’s song was heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers in those days when I was about ten and half years old (considering the date of censor certificate of this movie).

The reason for introducing this song today here on the blog is to celebrate and wish yesteryears beautiful actress Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’ today. She turns sixty-three today (born on 7th January’1957).

We wish her a safe, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I had in my earlier post mentioned about Reena Roy’s movies that I watched and liked too, so I am not going to repeat the same here. We will straightway come to today’s movie and the song.

‘Karmayogi-1978’ was directed by Ram Maheshwari for ‘A.R. Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Anil Suri. It had Mala Sinha, Rajkumar, Jeetendra, Rekha, Reena Roy, Ajit, Nazeer Hussain, Jagirdar, Yogita Bali, Sudhir Dalvi, Dheeraj, Kanhaiyalal, Jagdeep, Dhoomal, Mushtaq Merchant, Omkar Ema, Chandrashekhar, Jagdish Raj, Master Abbas, Master Parvez, Master Rajiv, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1978.

This movie had six songs, including one multiple version song. Lyrics for all songs were written by Verma Malik and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey were the playback singers for this movie.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung only one solo song in this movie and this is the same song being presented today.
None of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1978’ or 1979. However, today’s song made it to the ‘shadow list’ of songs or ‘songs of the next rung’ of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1979.

I had watched this movie on VCR during my stay at Kota circa 1990-1991. Though I have now forgotten the story of the movie, but I always remember a song from this movie. That song is another song sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturized 0n Rekha.

I had forgotten about today’s song but recently when I checked the Asha Bhonsle song for a post, I rediscovered this Lata Mangeshkar song. After listening to it, I recalled that this song was playedfrequently on loudspeakers during its time.

That is all for this post today. We wait for the next interesting post with other song of this movie. Till then let us once again wish Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’, and listen to today’s lovely song …

As mentioned above this song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lyrics are penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

With today’s song ‘Karmayogi-1978’ makes its debut on the blog. 😊

Blog Day :

4518 Post No. : 16075

Some regulars of the blog are more keen eyed than most people and they keep looking for important events taking place in the blog. One important event happened in the blog yesterday. I became aware of it mainly because some regulars pointed it out in our whatsapp group.

On this day in the afternoon, the blog silently registered its 14 millionth visitor. The blog began 12 years ago on 19 july 2008 and it took the blog 4517 days to reach this magic figure on 29 november 2020.

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks
1 million 25 October 2010 829 829 Slowest one million @ 1206 visitors per day
2 millions 7 November 2011 1207 378 @2645 visitors per day
3 millions 7 April 2012 1359 152 Fastest one million @ 6579 visitors per day
4 millions 10 December 2012 1606 247 @ 4049 visitors per day
5 millions 29 October 2013 1929 323 @3096 visitors per day
6 millions 12 October 2014 2277 348 @2873 visitors per day
7 millions 4 July 2015 2542 265 @ 3773 visitors per day
8 millions 20 April 2016 2833 291 @ 3436 visitors per day
9 millions 24 February 2017 3143 310 @ 3226 visitors per day
10 millions 14 January 2018 3467 324 @ 3086 visitors per day
11 millions 22 November 2018 3779 312 @ 3205 visitors per day
12 millions 4 July 2019 4003 224 @ 4464 visitors per day
13 millions 8 February 2020 4222 219 @ 4566 visitors per day
14 millions 29 November 2020 4517 295 @ 3390 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3099 visitors per day.

The above table shows that the blog, despite dealing in a non populist topic in a non TRP seeking manner, still draws a regular stream of visitors. It certainly serves as a source of encouragement for us.

I remember that the blog used to have visitors in trickles (in double figures in a day) during its early days. It was on 16 august 2008 that the blog touched three figures in a day for the first time. It was on 23 january 2009 (189th day of the blog) when more than one thousand visitors visited the blog for the first time. 5 August 2009 saw more than 2000 visitors for the first time in a day. The blog has even seen over ten thousand visits in a day. Here are the details:-

Date Number of visitors Blog day Remarks
19 July 2008 4 1 Only four visitors on the first day. Only occasion of single digit visitors in a day
20 July 2008 12 2 First time the blog reached double figure of visitors on the second day of the blog
16 August 2008 253 29 First time the blog reached three figures of visitors in a day
23 January 2009 1145 189 First time the blog reached four figures of visitors in a day
29 August 2009 2071 407 First time the blog reached 2000 visitors in a day
15 July 2011 3060 1092 First time the blog reached 3000 visitors in a day
4 October 2011 4137 1173 First time the blog reached 4000 visitors in a day
7 October 2011 5379 1176 First time the blog reached 5000 visitors in a day
9 October 2011 6082 1178 First time the blog reached 6000 visitors in a day
10 October 2011 7561 1179 First time the blog reached 7000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 8000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 9000 visitors in a day
19 October 2011 10630 1188 First and only time the blog reached 10000 visitors in a day

It took the blog more than 1000 days before it could get 3000 plus visitors in a day. But then all of a sudden, the blog touched heights of 4000 plus, 5000 plus, 6000 plus, 7000 plus, 8000 plus , 9000 plus and 10000 plus visits in a day in the month of October 2011, all within 15 days !

All these figures are interesting figures and they have been achieved without making any conscious attempts. In fact, we are not even aware how and why these visitors find us. All we know from wordpress stats is that the blog gets hits from all around the globe. Indiais the major country where this blog gets viewed the most and USA comes second. Other major countries from where this blog gets viewed are UK, Pakistan, Malaysia, Canada, UAE, Mauritius, Australia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa etc.

All we can conclude from the above is that Hindi movie music, especially those created decades ago, enjoy good following all around the world among music lovers of Indian origin and sometimes even among non Indian origin persons. People who are looking for difficult to find songs are likely to find their way into the blog. Some of them, after stumbling upon the blog may decide to bookmark the blog for further reference.

It gives us encouragement to find that we are visited even by people who are themselves associated with HFM and they sometimes post messages in the blog or contact us as well.

The figures about visitors to the blog are in a way a reflection on the fact that the work being done in the blog for old HF songs is being noticed and appreciated. And this is just the reward that we, like most normal human beings seek. Such appreciation is just the tonic that keeps us motivated and make us do this work regularly without taking any breaks.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati”(1969). This song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of the song is available as of now. This movie was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappi Sanie for Amar Chhaya Productions. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Babita, Kamini Kaushal, Om Prakash, Helen, Rajendra Nath, Laxmi Chhaya, Mumtaz Begum, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Hari Shivdasani, Sudhir, Sulochana Latkar, Sujata, Snehlata, Jagadish Kamal, Maqbool, Devi Chand, Baba Benjamin, Shobha, Madan Kenny etc in it. So, my guess is that thd song was picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Babita. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Satta Baazaar” (1959) was a Nagina Films production. It was directed by Ravindra Dave and starred Meena Kumari and Balraj Sahni in the lead with Johnny Walker leading the supporting cast of Ramayan Tiwari, Asit Sen, Suresh, Uma Dutt, Narmada Shankar etc. Vijaya Choudhury played Balraj Sahni’s daughter Kala. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and Hasrat Jaipuri, Shailendra, Indeevar and Gulshan Bawra were the lyrics in-charge. Hemant Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers.

Of the movie’s eight songs, four have been posted on the blog. The movie’s best and most popular song was posted on 21st February 2009:- Tumhen yaad hoga. The next song suno jee aankde ka dhandha came in 2012. It was followed by Chaandi ke chand tukdon ke liye. Zara thherhro jee Abdul Gaffa was the last song posted. It has a wonderful post by our in-house encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji. He has given us the story of the movie too in there along with the biography of actor Suresh (real name Nazim Ahmed as Sir has mentioned in his post).

Today’s song I discovered when I was looking for a song, when I was writing a post for music director Kalyanji’s anniversary in August and filed it away for use on another occasion. The occasion is the birth anniversary of Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi popular as Johnny Walker.

He was born in Indore and came to Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called) to earn a living and help look after his family. He took up various jobs before becoming a Conductor in Bombay’s BEST Undertaking. His anecdotes are there in this this video where he speaks to Tom Alter about how he modulated his voice for enhancing his characters. That is an interesting video. He speaks about how Balraj Sahni found his way of going about his job good enough to recommend him to Guru Dutt.

Today’s song is a dance with folk art in it. It has Johnny Walker and Sabita Chatterjee (in Marathi getup) teasing each other on the occasion of Vijaya Choudary’s engagement.

Let us think of Johnny Walker entertainer and enjoy Mohd Rafi singing as if Johnny himself is singing in typical Marathi folk style. Suman Kalyanpur is the voice for Sabita Chatterjee.

Lyrics

juniya o muniya ye kaun aaya
dekho ji dekho ji sher aaya
iski munchh dekho,
jaise bigade nawab
iski patli kamar,
jaise shaayar ka khwaab
iske kaan dekho
ki iske naak dekho
ki iski dum dekho,
dum dekho
dum dekho

agg baai

arre ja ja na chhed maan bhi ja
arre ja ja na chhed maan bhi ja
humein phir phir na gher maan bhi ja
kahin bigde na sher maan bhi ja
ho kahin bigde na sher maan bhi ja

karo hamse na pher dekh liya
bade aaye diler dekh liya
yeh kaagaz ka sher dekh liya
yeh kaagaz ke sher dekh liya
dekh liya

arre ja ja na chhed

ho kahin bigade na sher

maan bhi ja

arre sau sau bhes badal ke,
tum hamko chhalne aaye
kya kya baatein banaayi,
kya kya sapne dikhlaye
arre sau sau bhes badal ke,
tum hamko chhalne aaye
kya kya baatein banaayi,

kispe bhala yeh jaadoo chala
woh rah gaye
woh rah gaye jaal bichhaaye
arre ja ja na chhed
maan bhi ja
humein phir phir na gher
maan bhi ja
o kahin bigade na sher
maan bhi ja
kahin bigade na sher
maan bhi ja

arre hum toh ramte jogi,
chal denge desh paraaye
jab ud jaayega panchhi,
tab kya hoga pachhtaaye
arre hum toh ramte jogi,
chal denge desh paraaye
jab ud jaayega panchhi,
tab kya hoga pachhtaaye
chhodo yeh khel

kahin mausam chala na jaaye

karo hamse na pher dekh liya
bade aaye diler dekh liya
ye kaghaz ka sher dekh liya
ye kaghaz ke sher dekh liya

yeh nakli bhes utaaro
aur hamse bair na thhaano
arre waah waah waah waah kaa baat kah di
gar sachche ho dilwaale,
toh baat hamaari maano
yeh nakli bhes utaaro,
aur hamse bair na thhaano
kaisi bhali yeh mann ki gali

arre ab toh humein pehchaano
arre ja ja na chhed

humein phir phir na gher
maan bhi ja
kahin bigade na sher
maan bhi ja
kahin bigade na sher
maan bhi ja
