#the Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 8 # Usha Mangeshkar #
———————————————–———————————–—————— ——-

Welcome all to the eighth article in this series. Today’s voice is Usha Mangeshkar.
Today’s voice needs no introduction as all of us like minded people are aware about her family members and how she joined her elder sisters in singing for movies.
We are also aware of how she has carved a niche for herself among the many singers who ruled the hearts of millions of cine goers and HFM lovers in all these years.

A detailed write-up about Usha Mangeshkar has already been done by our inhouse encyclopedia Shri Arun ji in his post here.

I am reproducing the following text from his write-up (with his due permission) here.

Born on the 15th of December 1935, at Sangli, Usha is the 4th and the youngest sister of Mangeshkars. The line-up is very regular-exactly 2 year’s difference in the ages of the siblings-
Lata born in 1929
Meena born in 1931
Asha born in 1933
Usha born in 1935
Hridaynath born in 1937.

When master Deenanath died in 1942, Lata, all of 13 years, had to act and sing in films to earn money for the family. Meena, not so keen on singing chose to stay at home and look after the Mother and young Usha and Hridaynath. Asha joined her sister in acting, singing and earning money for the family. Usha was just 7-year-old, so she too remained at home. Besides singing, she was interested in Painting, so she took lessons from the famous painter of those days, M.R. Achrekar. In addition, she also continued learning Music from Pt. Tulsidas Sharma, K. Mahavir and Sushant Maharaj.

When Asha left suddenly and went away-in 1948- with Ganpatrao Bhonsle, twice her age, the family got a terrible jolt. The financial responsibility now fell only on Lata Mangeshkar. At the age of 19 years, Usha decided to start earning herself by singing in films and C. Ramchandra gave her the break with a song” Bhabhi aayee” from ‘Subah ka Tara’-1954. Her very first song became so popular that she was flooded with children’s song offers. Her next popular song was ‘Aplam chaplam’ from Azaad, also by C. Ramchandra.

Usha Mangeshkar’s voice was thereafter used for many children songs. For me, the oldest memory of her children song is the song from ‘Waapas-1969’ which I have presented on the blog and the song is ‘jhunjhuna jhunjhuna’.

Thereafter as I get involved more with Bollywood songs, I became aware of many of her earlier songs. Like when I came into the contact with this blog, and became a Sahir fan, I got to listened her duet song with Asha Bhonsle from the ‘1955’ movie ‘Devdas’ i.e., ‘o albele panchhi tera door thhikaana hai’.

She also got to sing many duet songs with her sister and other female singers in HFM. Many of such duets have been popular and are favorites of music lovers.

And then come the most important period of her singing careers which the ‘decade of seventies 1971-1980’.

During these years, her voice not only featured in many songs but her many songs become popular too. It will not be inappropriate to say that her singing career was at its ‘peak’ during the years of ‘seventies’. That was for Hindi as well as Marathi movies.

For Marathi movies her voice was there in every Dada Kondke movie which became ‘Jubilee Hits’. I remember many songs from such movies that were frequently played on loudspeakers everywhere during festivals and other programs.
Also, the songs from the movie ‘Pinjara-1972’ went on to became huge hits with her voice appearing in six of the nine songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

In 1975 came the movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ which was big hit and so were its songs. Usha Mangeshkar’s voice featured in three of the seven songs in this movie. All the three songs sung by her were popular among the masses. Music for this movie was composed by C. Arjun. The song ‘Main to aarti utaaroon re Santoshi Maata ki’ became hugely popular and it remained her all time big hit and highlight of her Hindi movie singing career.

In 1977 came the movie ‘Inkaar’ and its song ‘mungdaa mungdaa main gud ki dali’ was a runaway hit and it was also the favorite of almost each orchestra programs happening then.

I would also like to mention few of her songs here which I like very much.

‘Sainaath tere hazaaron haath’ from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba-1977’,

‘ye jeena hai angoor ka daanaa’ from the movie ‘Khatta Meethha-1977’,

‘mujhe pyaar ka tohfaa de ke’ from the movie ‘Kaalaa Patthar-1979’, which was not included in the movie,
‘sultaanaa sultaanaa mera naam hai sultaanaa’ from the movie ‘Taraanaa-1979’,
And in the later years songs like ‘goron ki naa kaalon ki’, the unforgettable ‘shaam rangeen huyi hai tere aanchal ki tarah’ … There might be other notable songs too which I might be missing here.

And that is the reason that Usha Mangeshkar, because of the many songs of her in the seventies, and many nostalgic moments for us, people like me, who were growing in the seventies, is the voice in this series.

And I must mention here the today’s song which is the very special song for me, as it still has the same effect on me, whenever I listen to it or watch it on the video or other video media.
When I was noting it down for this post and watching it I still get the goose-pimples, because of the singing of this song, the overall composition and the picturization of this song, that is embedded in my mind since my childhood. Specially the landing of Santoshi Maa in the ‘mrityu-lok’ from the ‘swarg-lok’ 😊

So, even if Usha Mangeshkar had sung only this song, she would still have the voice for me in this series for the nostalgia associated with this song for me.

This song is from the 1975 movie ‘Jai Santosh Maa’. Lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep and music is composed by C. Arjun.

On screen this song is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal and many others with Anita Guha as Santoshi Maa can be seen in the picturization of this song.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma. It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’. Bharat Bhushan makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and that is exactly the same day forty-six years back. I checked, it was Wednesday on this date and may be the movie was released the coming Friday after that. (Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this).

(Editor’s note- The movie was released on 15 August 1975, which was a friday-and India’s independence day. Another movie called “Sholay”(1975) was also released on the same day.)

Today is Friday and what a better day to present this song today.

Let us now listen to this wonderful song…

I hope you like the song as I do. 😊

“Girls’ School”(1949) was written and directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Lokmanya Productions, Bombay. Lokmanya Productions was a joint venture of Kavi Pradeep and Amiya Chakraborty. This movie had Geeta Bali, Sohan, Mangala, Krishna, Sajjan, Ram Singh, Shashikala, Vimala Vashisht etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Anil Biswas was signed up as the music director. But he walked out of the movie when he found Kavi Pradeep the co producer interfering in his work. So C Ramchandra composed music for the remaining songs.

Six songs from “Girls’ School”(1949) have been covered in the past. The movie incidentally had little to do with the education of girls despite its fancy title. And the movie duly flopped. So the songs of the movie are better enjoyed as standalone songs, rather than as part of this movie.

Today (1 may 2021) is the birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 may 1919-24 october 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Girls’ School”(1949). The song is sung by Manna Dey and Shamshad Begam. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Anil Biswas is mentioned as the music director of this song, but I suspect that this song could have been composed by C Ramchandra, seeing that C Ramchandra used the voices of Shamshad Begam and Lalita Deulkar as female voices in other songs composed for the movie, mainly because Lata Mangeshkar, the first choice for female playback singer, who had recorded three songs with Anil Biswas for the movie, refused to record more songs, when she came to know about the unceremonious ouster of Anil Biswas from this movie. However, I have gone with Anil Biswas as the music director here as mentioned in HFGK.

Today is also International labour day. The lyrics of the song sound appropriate for tat occasion as well.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

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

Blog Day :

4575 Post No. : 16182

Today is 26th january (2021), which is republic day for India. Arguably, this is the most important day for independent India, more important than even the independence day, in my opinion.

71 years have passed since India was declared a republic on 26 January 1950. During the past 71 years, we have been through lots and lots of changes, upheavels, trials and tribulations, calamities etc. Thankfully today we find ourselves in a better position than what we were at in 1950. In fact, we find ourselves in a much better position vis a vis 1990.

I was born when the first Prime Minister and first President of India were still around. So I have lived through the eras of all the Prime Ministers and Presidents of India that we had !

During all these decades, some good practices have taken root. On the other hand, we still have some bad practices that we need to get rid of.

Instead of talking about what the government should do, here I will largely discuss what we need to do. Since we are a democratic republic, our behaviour decides what the government does, rather than the other way round.

Here are some of my observations.

1. Someone else will do it:- This attitude, which is basically passing the buck, has harmed India a great deal over the decades. Instead of doing the work ourselves, we wait for someone else to do the job. As a result, that job remains pending. Worst still, that creates a long lasting problem for the nation.

2. Chalta hai attitude– We expect others to be perfect, but we ourselves are far too lax in our on dealings. We can find fault in the batting technique of Virat Kohli, but we rarely judge our own performance in our workplace with the same high standards.

3. Putting self interest before national interest– Look at the demands of any unions, be it staff union or officers union. All the ten points of their memorandum would contain demands about betterment of their perks, not a single demand would be about the betterment of the organisation.

4. Very few people, typically 1 % of the people are supposed to bear the burden of the entire population. For instance, only 1 % population of India pays income tax, and that money is then squandered in giving subsidy to “poor” people instead of helping them train to come out of “poverty”.

5. Wealth creation and wealth creators have been demonised in India. Poor people and Poverty get glorified. This state of affairs should change immediately.

6. Many indians suffer from inferiority complex vis a vis western countries. This inferiority complex is misplaced and is a result of systematic brainwashing.

The above are some of the points that one can think of without much effort.

What do I have to suggest to improve matters ?

I will make a one point suggestion, instead of making too many suggestions. My one point suggestion is, we have to overhaul our education system. The present education system churns our zombies, who lack the ability to think for themselves and are easily brainwashed. It serves the purpose of the self seeking politicians but it has harmed the country a great deal in all fields. Our education system encourages rote memory, rather than application of knowledge. No wonder our manpower cannot even do basic works, forget doing cutting edge technical works. Whatever competent manpower we have are not because of our education system but inspite of this education system.

We have framed our constitutution based on the British Constitution. But we have not framed our education system based on British education system. British (namely Lord Macauley) gave us an education system in India. Britain herself has an entirely different kind of education system, one that does not seek to produce semi literate babus, unlike the case in India. As soon as India had our constitution, we needed to have our own education system. It has become too late now. Seven decades too late, but better late than never. we can still try and ensure better education system for the future generations.

Instead of insisting on same degrees for everyone, we need to insist on vocational training based on the aptitude of students, instead of imposing the same kind of education on everyone.

Failing an elephant because it cannot climb a tree, failing a monkey because it cannot fly, comdemning a goat because it cannot uproot a tree, that is how our Macaulean education system judges its students.

India has requirements of qualified people in all fields. What is happening now is that all people take the same education.Those who score higher marks become engineers, doctors. Those who score lower marks become civil servants. Those who score even lower become clerks. People scoring even lower become peons, guards etc. Those who cannot get any jobs become freelancers. Those who are not good enough for any jobs become politicians. And all these people are not trained properly for their jobs ! A clerk is not trained to be a clerk. A security guard is not trained to be a security guard. When a civil contractor hires workers to execute his contract, the workers like say masons, or welders are not properly trained for their jobs. They have mostly learnt their work from other workers. In my proposed education system, a mason or a welder will need to be trained by a recognised welding trainer, a plumber by a recognised plumbing trainer etc. This is because continuous imporovemnt takes place in all fields of activities. Our workers whether in organised sector or unorganised sector are far far behind in their knowledge and mastery about latest advancements in their fields. Even security guards should have training.

The above discussion is largely for workers in manufacturing and services sector. The same is needed for the agriculture sector where Indian productivity is among the lowest in the world. One reason is that majority of farmers are not educated. Farmers too need to be well educated in their area of activity, instead of trying to earn the same meaningless degree as others.

In summary, our education system should ensure the supply of highly skilled manpower in all the fields. Even cleanliness, which is considered a menial work, is a specialised work, and people who are tasked with this work need to be well trained for this work.

As I have mentioned earlier, we need to identify the aptitude of individuals and give them vocational training based on his attitude. This is what happens in advanced nations. They do not encourage mindless enrolment in colleges for taking meaningless degrees.

We need not reinvent the wheel. The kind of education system that I have suggested in already available in advanced nations. I suggest that we adopt the German education system. It is a tried and tested education system and we all are aware of German products and their quality that this education system helps produce.

Any country can have two kinds of resources- one is natural resources (mineral ores etc) and other is human resources. One will notice that a country can develop only when its human resources are developed, even if they lack natural resources. For instance, Japan, Israel, Singapore are three nations that have negligible natural resources but they are highly advanced nations thanks to their sell trained human resource. On the other hand we have examples of countries (for example African countries) that are under developed despite possessing vast mineral resources.

India fortunately is very well blessed by nature. But we have failed to make the most of our nature given resources because we have not made the most of our human resources. If we harness our human resources, we sill not only utilise them produtively, we will also be able to take advantage of what the expetts describe as our potential demographic advantage (vast majority of population of India being in working ager group, unlike most other countries).

Today (26 January 2021) we are celebrating our 71st Republic day. We have quite a few things to feel proud about on this occasion. American and British media had predicted millions of covid 19 deaths in India. India has proved them wrong. It appears that these media were watching their own countries in mirror. As on today USA and Britain continue to reel under COVID 19 epidemic, ith Britain even “pioneering” a more dangerous strain of this virus. Unlike these countries, India is even offering low cost and safer vacceines to many countries of the nation.
See this thank you message by Brazil. Makes every Indian proud.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Anjaan”(1941). “Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

One will notice that the song is from an era when India was not even independent, forget being a republic. But still this song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep who sore patriotism on his sleeves, that too in an era when it was very risky to do so. In this song, sung by Ashok Kumar and others, they exhort the naujaaan of Bharat (viz the human resource of India) to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself to them. And the song advises them not to miss this opportunity unlike the missed opportunities of the past.

Pannalal Ghosh is the music director.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala many years ago. This happens to be the 500th lyrics contribution by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog. A befitting achievement for him on the occasion of the Indian Republic day, seeing that he too, like Kavi Pradeep, wears his partiotism on his sleeve.

On this occasion, I ish a happy republic day to one and all. Jai Hind.

Blog Day :

4560 Post No. : 16171

The blog ten year challenge series is in progress in the blog since 2019. The current blog ten year challenge (2011-2021) has not yet picked up steam because very few songs were discussed during the initial days of 2010. That year even had a few DOT days during the first few days of the year.

This day ten year ago (viz 20 january 2010) saw just one song getting discussed, and that one song was from “Anjaan”(1956). This movie cannot be taken up for Blog Ten year challenge today because the movie has already been YIPPEED.

So what to do ? “Anjaan”(1956) may have been YIPPEED in the blog, but “Anjaan”(1941) is not. So let me discuss a song from “Anjaan”(1941) today. 🙂

“Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Anjaan”(1941) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rajkumari. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pannalal Ghosh.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knoledgeable readers to thro light on the picturisation of the song.

PS-Our regular visitor Ammj Wijesiriwardene points out that the video of the song is available. From the video, we see that the song is picturised as a stage performance song where one lady, flanked by two others, lip syncs this song and that is performed by their dance accompanied by a dholak player, as this performance is watched by a housefull audience in a haveli. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

One notices that Lata Mangeshkar did not have a single song with C Ramchandra this year because she fell out with him this year. Husnlal Bhagatram, a major music director for Lata Mangeshkar in her early days had bowed out by then and even they were conspicuous by their absence this year. Suprprisingly, Lata Mangeshkar did not have a single song with Naushad this year.

Lata Mangeshkar tied up with music directors Krishn Rao for the first time in this year. She tied up with lyricists Mushtar Haideri and Naqsh Llayalpuri for the first time in 1959.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1959 :

One notices that Lata Mangeshkar completed 2000 songs as a playback singer during this year. There is another major landmark that few people noticed. This year she completed 100 duet songs with Rafi. Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar had a whopping 26 duets in 17 movies during this year. That took the tally of their duets to 124 by 1959.

The major music directors for Lata Mangeshkar till then were C Ramchandra (263), Shankar Jaikishan (225), Anil Biswas (114), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), Roshan (101), Madan Mohan (94), S D Burman (87) and Naushad (76) who had accounted for 1068 of her songs till then. Top lyricists for her were Rajinder Krishan (355), Shailendra (214), Hasrat Jaipuri (147), Shakeel Badayuni (115), Bharat Vyas (104) and Prem Dhawan (101). Together, they penned 1036 Lata Mangeshkar songs.

Looking at the table of 1959, we see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 211 songs in movies of 1959. As many as 188 of these songs are already covered in the blog. Only 23 Lata songs from movies of 1959 are left to be covered. Out of 58 movies of 1959, only 11 movies have some Lata Mangeshkar songs still left to be covered.

Alphabetically, the first such movie is “Do Behnen”(1959). This movie was produced by J P Sahgal and Kailash Kapoor and directed by Kedar Kapoor for Brij Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Rajendra Kumar, Chaand Usmani, Radhakishan, Tiwari, Rammohan, S K Prem, Mumtaz, Jaleel, Kesho, Brahmdutt, Padmini Priydarshini, Leela Mishra etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs, including four songs containing the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

The song is picturised as a Maharashtrian Lavani dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer and others seen in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

The video is of poor quality. The lyrics are based on audio version which is clearer and longer.

15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).

We in this blog remember the personalities of HFM during their anniversaries. But in case of Ashok Kumar’s birth anniversary, we are constrained to defer it to next day because this day unfortunately turned out to be the death anniversary of Kishore Kumar, his younger brother.

Ashok Kumar (13 October 1911 – 10 December 2001) was easily the first superstar of HFM. He achieved his stardom in early 1940s, at a time when many actors now regarded as superstars had not even made their debuts. For instance, people like Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor had not even made their debuts by that time. Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, future superstars were mere toddlers at that time.

Ashok Kumar began his film career as a lab technician. His rise to superstardom from that position was quite meteoric. Unlike meteors, he stayed on top throughout his career. He was not just a top actor, he was also a film maker. He never had to look for work. He was himself an employer of film actors. Unlike many film personalities who fell on hard times and survived in penury in old age, Ashok Kumar managed his finances well and he was always financially well secured. This is one quality of his that most film personalities needed to learn from.

Ashok Kumar was well connected to lots and lots of other well known film personalities through blood relations as well as marriage alliances. In his own household he had Anup Kumar and Kishore Kumar as his brothers. His sister Sati Rani Devi was married to film producer Shashdhar Mukherjee (founder of Filmalaya), whose brother Subodh Mukherjee was a director. Shashdhar Mukherjee’s sons were Rono Mukherjee, Joy Mukherjee, Deb Mukherjee, Shomu Mukherjee and Shubir Mukherjee, all into films. Shomu Mukherjee’s wife is Tanuja. Their daughter is Kajol.

If one looks at the filmy connections of Ashok Kumar, thanks to Kishore Kumar’s various marriages, it will turn out that Ashok Kumar was related to almost every major star in HFM and beyond. Ashok Kumar is related to Kapoors, Bachchans, Rabindranath Tagore, Mithun Chakraborty etc. Exploring all these connections can be used as an exercise in timepass by those interested. 🙂

Ashok Kumar was an actor-singer during the early parts of his career. Some of his songs have gone on to become immortal songs. Who can forget the immortal “Achhot Kanya”(1937) duet Main ban ki chidiya ban ban doloon re with Devika Rani.

Here is another Ashok Kumar-Devika Rani duet. This song is from “Anjaan”(1941). It is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Pannalal Ghosh.

A very nice retro style romantic song. One would love watching the picturisation.

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


Song-Mere jeewan ke pathh par chhaayi ye kaun (Anjaan)(1941) Singers-Ashok Kumar, Devika Rani , Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Pannalal Ghosh

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Blog Day :

Now a days we are regularly discussing songs under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge”. Every day, at least one movie is found to be eligible for this challenge.

Today (19 august 2020) is an exception. No movie is eligible today for the reason that no posts appeared on this day 10 year ago. That way, 2010 had lots of DOT days – 61 to be exact. 19 august 2010 was the 45th DOT day (out of 61) of 2010.

By contrast, 2020 thankfully has had no DOT days. And I hope that we will be able to maintain this record for 2020.

Today so far no post has appeared. On this occasion here is a song from “Chandi Pooja”(1957). “Chandi Pooja”(1957) was produced by Dinu M Desai and directed by Raman B Desai for New Precious pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Shanta Apte, Prem Adib, D.K.Sapru, Hans Raj, Malaya Sarkar, Panday, Moni Chatterjee, Sangeeta, Sudhir, Narbada Shankar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. The movie had made its debut in the blog on 18 August 2010 and four out of eight songs of the movie have been covered so far. So the movie was eligible for “Blog Ten Year Challenge” yesterday. But we could noyt take up this movie yesterday.

One day later, here is the fifth song from “Chandi Pooja”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and female chorus. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ajit Merchant.

Only the audio of this “Aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

lo aa gayi jawaani ee
ab pyaar ka mausam hai
bachpan hua khatam
