Hullo Atuldom

Last year, in July, I discovered that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” as a title has been used twice in Bollywood. I have written briefly about this in this post. Then I went on to speak about the “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’80s.

Today we are revisiting “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’60s. Four of its songs are present on the blog.

Song Date of post Reamrks
Aao tumhen bataaoon ke maa kya hai 17 september 2012 (debut on the blog)
Aaj rota hai kyun 17 September 2012 (rare song as it is filmed on Dev Kumar who normally played a baddie.)
Ik paise ka sawaal hai mere daata 14 September 2016 (there is a comment to this post saying that all the big names in the cast had miniscule screen-time)
Jaane kaise chori chori balmaa ne dekha 22 June 2017

The last post from this movie was nearly five years back. The movie had six songs in all, let us take it a step closer to yyiippeeeehood. The songs of the movie were written by Kaifi Azmi and tuned by Madan Mohan. Only three singers were used:- Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi. Jagdev Bhambri was the producer- director and Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the editor. As per the comments posted (to an earlier post) Dev Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee were the lead with Dharmendra and Biswajeet making special appearances. I would like some reader who has more information about the film to enlighten us as to Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Chand Usmani and Abhi Bhattacharya’s roles in the film.

The song from this movie, that Atulji posted, in July 2012, was a rare song as it was filmed on Dev Kumar. Dev Kumar was born Chaman Lal Kohli in 1930 who was a fan of Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand. Hope that explains why he called himself ‘Dev Kumar’ in films. (More on Dev Kumar can be found in this video of Tabassum Talkies)

Today’s song is in memory of Madan Mohan the creator of such wonders as “Dil dhoondhta phir wahi”, “koi patthar se na maare”, “meri yaad mein tum na aansoo bahana”, “tumse bichhad ke chain kahan hum payenge”, “agar mujhse mohabbat hain”, “aap ki nazron ne samjha pyar ke kaabil” and 624 other songs in 93 movies (as per the stats tab of our blog).The blog already has 560 of Madan Mohan’s compositions. Additionally. the stats tab says that three songs written by him and six sung by him are on the blog.

There are stalwarts among the blog’s followers who will tell us that Madanji’s father – Rai Bahadur Chunilal Kohli – desperately tried to keep him away from the film industry. He was schooled in Lahore, Mumbai and Dehradun. His journey in the entertainment world began with All India Radio, where he was a program assistant first at Lucknow then Delhi. He loved singing and 1947/48 saw him record a ghazal or two. He also recorded duets, with Lata Mangeshkar (who considered him to be her brother) under Ghulam Haider for the 1948 released “Shaheed”; but the songs were not used in the movie. Initially he was assistant to composers Shyam Sunder, SD Burman etc. (need confirmation on all of these from the stalwarts among the blog’s followers) He passed away on 14th July 1975 when he was only 51.
I know of at least two movies of the new millennium that paid homage to this maestro who was fond of ghazals in their own small style

(1) the Amitabh Bachchan- Akshay Kumar- Bobby Deol starrer “Ab tumhare hawale watan saathiyo” used the cross-line of one of Madanji’s popular songs from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964)

(2) Yash Chopra’s “Veer Zaara” was a more fitting tribute to the composer (my opinion) where we can enjoy Madanji’s, hitherto, unused tunes.
I have read somewhere that he amassed an amazing record of compositions, the majority of which were either unutilized for lack of appropriate films or alternate tunes for his albums.

Our Rajaji has poured his thoughts on Madan Mohanji into this post.


Song-Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi azmi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

kam se kam insaan samjho
in kismat ke maaron ko
aahen chhalni kar denge
sone ki deewaaron ko
patthar dil bhi badal daalo
kapde jaise badalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

nirdhan kaise jeete hain
ye tum kaise jaanoge
apna dil jab tootegaa
sab ka gham (?) pehchaanoge
kaanton par bhi chalo ik din
phoolon per to macahlte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

jiske sapne chheene hain
usko meethhe sapne do
jiske armaan loote hain
usko armaan apne do
kuchh to karke dikhaao tum
baithhe ho aankhen malte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 64
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 7 July 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6189 Baadal dal se nikal chala Hamaari Baat(1943) Movie YIPPEED by now
6190 Taqdeer jagaa kar aayi hoon Dulaari (1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
6191 Hello hello hello mizaaj to huzoor ke hain achche Minister (1959) 3 songs covered out of 6 by now
6192 Ho gaye barbaad hum Ramman(1954) 5 songs covered out of 10 by now
6193 Haal e dil hamaara jaane na bewafaa Shrimaan Satyawaadi(1960) Movie YIPPEED by now
6194 Mere laadlon tum phoolo phalo Sant Gyaneshwar (1964) 5 songs covered out of 8 by now

We can see from the above table that three movies (out of six) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with three movies wjose songs are still available to be covered. So these three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (7 July 2022).

“Minister”(1959) was one of the eligible movies. It was produced by K M Khan and Begum Jaan and directed by Ramanlal Desai for Jahangir Productions. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Roopmala, Suresh, Jeevan, Bhagwan, Om Prakash, Tuntun, Murad, Sulochana, Baby Naaz, Gopi Krishna, Reshma, Jagadish Kamal, Narbada Shankar, Indira Bansal etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Minister”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi , Lata and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

It appears that Madan Mohan was under instructions to compose an O P Nayyar like composition. That is what his song sounds like. O P Nayyar never used the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his compositions. This song gives us an idea how Lata Mangeshkar would have sounded like in an O P Nayyar composition.

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

Lyrics of the song were set to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4867 Post No. : 16659

Today, November 14, 2021 is the 4th Remembrance Day of Shyama (real name – Khurshid Akhtar) who enthralled the Hindi film buffs with her blinks and smiles in her Hindi films of 1950s. There was a spontaneity and energy in her performances reflecting, what I guess, her joie de vivre nature.

My earliest memory of watching Shyama was in ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) on its repeat release sometime in 1974 as a part of Guru Dutt’s Film Perspectives. I became familiar with her face when some of the songs picturised on her from the films like my all-time favourite, ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Sharda’ (1957), ‘Mr Qartoon MA’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) and many more, used to be telecast on Mumbai Doordarshan’s  ‘Chhaaya Geet’ programme. Some of her songs have remained in the limelight even today. I can never get tired of watching those songs pictuirsed on Shyama.

Shyama (07 Jun, 1935 – 14 Nov, 2017) was born in Lahore but her family had shifted to Mumbai in early 1940s. She did her schooling in Anjuman-E-Islam High School in South Mumbai. Shyama’s foray into her first Hindi film, ‘Zeenat’ (1945) was an accidental one. When she was on a visit to watch the film’s shooting along with her school friends, the film’s director, Shaukat Hussain Rizvi invited her to be the part of the chorus singers for the picturization of the qawwali song, “Aahen Na Bhari Shiqwe Na Kiye”. At that time, she was 9. Thereafter, she did small roles as a child actor and side roles as a teenager in around 35 films. At a young age, she had become the bread-earner for her large family. Her screen name, Shyama was given by Prakash Pictures’ Vijay Bhatt when working in his film, ‘Nai Maa’ (1946) as a child artist.

Everything was not roses on the way to reach the stardom for Shyama. She had to struggle very hard to get roles during the early stage of her life when she was growing from her childhood to a teenager. Her struggling days got over when she bagged her first lead role in Filmistan’s ‘Shrimati ji’ (1952) with Nasir Khan. Thereafter, there was no dearth of work for her in the films.

During her filmy career of over 4 decades, Shyama worked in around 175 films. Some of her notable films are ‘Hum Log’ (1951), ‘Sazaa’ (1951), ‘Dil-E-Naadan’ (1953), ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Musaafirkhaana’ (1955), ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Shaarda’ (1957), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Johnny Walker’ (1957), ‘Mr. Qartoon MA’ (1958), ‘Laala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Chhoti Bahen’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), ‘Zabak’ (1961), ‘Bahurani’ (1963). From 1960’s onwards, Shayma switched over to character roles. She was active till the end of 1970s. However, after the death of her husband in 1979, she virtually took retirement from the films. Shyama faced the camera for the last time in ‘Hathyaar’ (1989).

I was going through her filmography from 1952 when she started getting lead actor’s roles to 1960 when her career was in the waning stage as a lead actor. It is amazing to note that during 1952-60, she worked in as many as 84 films making an average of nearly 10 films per year. I do not recall any other actress of her time achieved this distinction. The main reason for her large number films was that she accepted both the lead as well as supporting actor’s roles. Her films covered a variety of genres with a large assortments of lead actors like Motilal, Ashok Kumar, Premnath, Shammi Kapoor, Bharat Bhushan, Karan Diwan, Guru Dutt, Balraj Sahni, Sunil Dutt, Kishore Kumar, Johnny Walker, Ranjan, Mahipal, Talat Mehmood etc.

Shyama faced her worst financial and emotional turmoil in 1953 when she decided to marry director and cinematographer Fali Mistry. They fell in love  on the sets of ‘Sazaa’ (1951). The marriage was opposed by her father and her brothers. She had revealed her agony in her article in the Urdu film magazine ‘Shama’, published in November 1954, the English translation of which is available in Yasir Abbasi’s book ‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’ (2018).

According to Shyama, apparently the problem for her large family was that having got used to living lavishly on her earnings, they feared that her marriage with Fali Mistry would strip them off comforts and luxuries. When she decided to go ahead with the marriage, she was forced to leave her own house without her money and jewelry as her father and brothers confiscated all her assets including the bank balances. She and her supporting mother had to stay with the family of producer-director M Sadiq for a month before she could buy her own house by arranging money. It took another six months for Shyama and Fali Mistry to get married. But the marriage was not revealed in public for a long time for fear of film producers avoiding her to sign the new films.

Shyama spent her financially secured retired life, socializing with her close friends like Nanda, Shakeela, Waheeda Rehman, Jabeen Jaleel etc. Just about 5 years before her death, she got a paralysis attack making her movements restricted. However, she majorly recovered from the paralysis. She breathed her last on November 14, 2017 due to lung infections, leaving behind her two sons and a daughter. Her elder son, Faroukh Mistry is a Cinematographer in Hindi feature films and has directed many documentary and advertising films. The second son, Rohinton Mistry is settled in London as a businessman. Both her elder son and her daughter, Shirin were with her while she breathed her last.

As a tribute to Shyama on the occasion of her 4th Remembrance Day, I have chosen a song pictuirsed on her in the film ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958). This film was among four films in which Shyama acted opposite Johnny Walker in lead role. The other three films in this combination were ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Johnny Walker’ (1957) and ‘Mr Qartoon MA (1958). Incidentally, all these three films had OP Nayyar as the music director.

‘Khota Paisa’ (1958) had 7 songs of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Rajinder Krishan which were set to music by Madan Mohan. I am presenting the 6th song, “Ye Zaalim Nighaaon Ki Ghaat” which is sung by Asha Bhosle. It is a club song during which NA Ansari, the menacing pipe smoking villain, is present along with his henchmen.

It is interesting to note that in the record version there is some changes in wordings of the song as under:

Film Sound Track Version Record Version
Mukhda
ye zaalim NIGHAAON ki GHAAT
badi tikhi badi NATKHATI
Mukhda
ye zaalim MOHABBAT ki CHAAT
badi tikhi badi CHATPATI
Antara-2
GAA le ZARA jahaan mein
NAGMA to aashiqi kaajo NAYE pyaar ki RAT RATI
Antara-2
LE le MAZA jahaan mein
DAM BHAR LO aashiqi kaajo NA THHI pyaar ki PHATPATI
Antara-3
KATNE bhi de khushi se
ye BAHAAR ke zamaane
Antara-3
LOOTNE bhi de khushi se
ye PYAAR ke zamaane

Other features of this song is that Asha Bhosle seems to imitate the style of Geeta Dutt  and Madan Mohan’s musical composition of the song closely resembles that of OP Nayyar.

Song – Ye Zaalim Nigaahon Ki Ghaat (Khota Paisa) (1958) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
apne apne muqaddar ki baat
kiske hisse mein kitni bati
ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
jo nazar na milaayi
na jigar pe chot khaayi
us dil kaa faayda kya
jo kisi pe aa na jaaye
hai wo zindagi bhi koi zindagi
jo mohobbat kiye bin kati
ye zaalim nighaaon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
jo huwa na kisi ka
dushman hai zindagi ka
gaa le zara jahaan mein
nagma to aashiqi ka
tu jiya bhi to kya
do ghadi ke liye
jo na ye pyaar ki rat rati
ye zaalim nigaahon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
 
ye dil kaun jaane
lut jaaye kis bahaane
katne bhi de khushi se
hain bahaar ke zamaane
lut gaye dil kai
mit gaye dil kai
par mohobbat kabhi na ghati
ye zaalim nigaahon ki ghaat
badi teekhi badi natkhati
apne apne muqaddar ki baat
kiske hisse mein kitni bati

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir Kapur)

ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी
अपने अपने मुकद्दर की बात
किसके हिस्से में कितनी बटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

जो नज़र ना मिलाई
ना जिगर पे चोट खाई
उस दिल का फायदा क्या
जो किसी पे आ ना जाए
है वो ज़िंदगी भी कोई ज़िंदगी
जो मोहब्बत किए बिन कटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

जो हुआ ना किसी का
दुश्मन है ज़िंदगी का
गा ले ज़रा जहां में
नग़मा तो आशिक़ी का
तू जिआ भी तो क्या दो घड़ी के लिए
जो ना ये प्यार की रट रटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी

ये दिल कौन जाने
लुट जाये किस बहाने
कटने भी दे खुशी से
हैं बहार के जमाने
लुट गए दिल कई
मिट गए दिल कई
पर मोहब्बत कभी ना घटी
ये ज़ालिम निगाहों की घात
बड़ी तीखी बड़ी नटखटी
अपने अपने मुकद्दर की बात
किसके हिस्से में कितनी बटी

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part LVII: Year 2004
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, the 57th episode, we were supposed to discuss Lata Mangeshkar songs that she sang in Hindi movies released in 2003, seeing that previous episode covered songs that she sang in 2002.

It turns out that Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in movies released during 2003. So 2003 was the first year after 1945, when Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in Hindi movies. So we needed to move on to the next year viz 2004. Even in that year, we were drawing a blank, till we reached the alphabet V. “Veer Zaara”(2004) turned out to be the only movie of 2004 where Lata Mangeshkar sang songs. She sang as many as 9 songs in this movie. 90 Hindi movies containing 632 songs were released uring 2004. So Lata Mangeshkar got to sing in 1.1 % of these movies and she sang 1.4 % of songs in these movies. So her era almost drew to a close after ruling the roost for more than six decades.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 2004 :-

S N Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists
1 Veer Zaara Madan Mohan 3 9 2 4 0 3 Javed Akhtar
Total 1 movie 1 MD 3 9 2 4 0 3 1 lyricist

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 1 music director and 1 lyricist in this one movie released in 2004. Madan Mohan had passed away in 1975, but his unused tunes, which his son had in his possession, were used for this movie, crediting Madan Mohan as the music director.

Laxmikant Pyarelal were the most prolific music directors with Lata, with 664 songs in HFM with Lata Mangeshkar by the end of 2002. Shankar Jaikishan with 457 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were in the second position. R D Burman with 332 Lata Mangeshkar and Kalyanji Anandji with 307 songs were next ahead of C Ramchandra with 275 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (239), Madan Mohan (204), S D Burman (179),Naushad (146), Roshan (144), Hemant Kumar (127), Anil Biswas (120), Bappi Lahiri (112), Rajesh Roshan (111), Salil Chaudhary (109), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), and Vasant Desai (104). Together these seventeen music directors composed 3742 songs out of 5234 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 2004. Anand Bakshi with 731 songs was the top lyricist with Lata Mangeshkar. Other leading lyricists with Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (555), Majrooh Sultanpuri (407), Shailendra (361), Hasrat Jaipuri (301), Prem Dhawan (201), Bharat Vyas (193), Shakeel Badayuni (189), Sahir Ludhianvi (161) and Indeewar (156). These ten lyricists had penned 3252 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar till that time.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 2004 :

“Baawarchi”(1972) was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Jaya Bhaduri, Asrani, A K Hangal, Durga Khote, Harindranath Chattopadhyay etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these five songs:-

Here is the sixth and final song from “Baawarchi”(1972)to appear in the blog. It is sung by Kumari Faiyyaz. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Only the audio of the song appears to be available as of now. It appears to me that the song may have been there originally in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the pucturisation of this song. It sounds like a folk dance song to me.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song all the songs of “Baawarchi”(1972) are covered in the blog and so this movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 20
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz on 1 april 2011), five songs from five different movies were covered in the blog. Here are thge details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
3717 Pareshaan hoon ki kyun apni pareshaani nahin jaati Parbat Pe Apna Deraa(1944) 5 songs covered out of 9
3718 Yaad aane lagee Daman(1951) 8 songs covered out of 10

3720 Naach re man badkamma Rajkumar(1964) Movie YIPPEED by now
3721 Gori ke haath mein jaise ye chhallaa Mela(1971) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that three movies out of five have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Parbat Pe Apna Dera”(1944) is one of the two movies not yet YIPPEED. This movie was directed by V.Shantaram for Rajkamal Kala Mandir Limited, Bombay. The movie had Vanmala, Ulhas,Shantarin, Madan Mohan, Kantakumari, P L Samant, Baby Nalini, Vijaya, Suman, Kamal etc in it.

Five songs from the movie (out of 9) have been covered so far.

As blog ten year challenge today, here is a song from “Parbat Pe Apna Dera”(1944). This song is sung by Vasant Desai and Naseem Akhtar. Dewan Sharar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai. The song is picturised as a romantic song on Madan Mohan (later he would make his mark as a music director) and Shantarin. Ulhas is also seen in the picturisation serving as a peeping Tom.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4616 Post No. : 16257

It is difficult for me to tell what I was doing during various dates of years gone by, seeing that I do not keep any diary. Diary writing used to be a great hobby of people of past generations. Now a days even the habit of writing with pen on paper has largely gone into disuse, and therefore going back don memor lane and giving accurate personal reminiscences has become difficult.

However, there are some ways. For example, I can go back say ten years and see the posts that I hame that day. From those posts, I can sometimes tell what I as doing that day in distant past.

I thought of going down the memory lane by exactly ten years to see if I can get a Blog Ten Year Challenge article written today. I found that on this day ten years ago, I had posted four writeups from four different movies. I found that one movie was still unYIPPEED.

Elated, I began to prepare my writeup. But when I checked up the links of the songs posted ten years ago, I realised that I had erred and that all the movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago on this day ere already YIPPEED. Instead of looking at the posts of 10 years ago, I had looked at the posts of 11 years ago, viz 8 March 2010.

So be it. So this article is not a Blog ten year challenge. It is an eleven year challenge, though.

The movie is “Chowkidaar”(1974). “Chowkidaar”(1974) was directed by Shyam Ralhan for Namrata Movies, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Yogita Bali, Vinod Khanna, Om Prakash, Jeevan, Sulochana, Sapru, Randheer, Zeb Rehman, Jayshree T, Asit Sen, Lalita Kumari, Ram Mohan, Joginder, Amrita Patel, Narmada Shankar, Uma Dhawan, Daljeet, Vimla, Dhanraj, Tilakraj, Babu Bhai, Kapila Sharma, Zebunnissa, Rajrani, Maqbool, Master Pramod, Vaishali (guest appearance) etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. The movie made its debut in the blog on this date ten years ago.
Here are the details of the songs covered so far:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting
2337 Ye duniya nahin jaagir kisi ki 8 March 2010
5738 Rehne do chanda badli mein 5 April 2012
5745 Thhoda sa aitbaar keejiye 6 April 2012
11235 Insaanon se kyun jhukte ho…zindagi zindagi 1 July 2015
14302 Chaloon main jidhar se 25 April 2018

The movie “Chowkidaar”(1974) had made its debut in the blog on this day eleven years ago.

When I think about this date 11 years ago, I cannot tell for sure what I was doing on this date. Did I attend any omen’s day function that day ? I cannot say for sure. Out of the four songs that were discussed that day, one song was penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. But there as no mention of his birth anniversary in that post. There was no mention of International women’s day either in this post or the other posts of that day. Those were simple days for the blog hen we lived simple lives not even aware of important days of HFM ! 🙂

THese days of course we are far more knolegeable on such matters. 🙂 Today the blog has already seen seven posts, and six of them have been Sahir Ludhianvi posts.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Chowkidaar”(1974), exactly eleven years after the movie made its debut.

This song is sung by Rafi. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The song is picturised as an “expression of love” genre of song on Sanjeev Kumar and Yogita Bali.

A nice “expression of love” song it is. I suppose that this is a typical Woman’s day song as far as Hindi movies are concerned. Statistics bear me out because this song is the 3222nd song of this genre in the blog, which is easily one of the most common genre of songs in HFM. So this song can be described as a Woman’s day song too. Women’s need not just be subjected to dry preachy praises on this day, they need to be wooed romantically as well. 🙂 That is what this song does. 🙂

So a Happy International woman’s day to all.

With this song, all the six songs of “Chowkidaar”(1974) are covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Song-Ik ladki bholi bhaali si (Chowkidaar)(1974) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

kahaan chali ho ye
sharma ke munh chhupaaye huye
kadam kadam pe
kayaamat si ek uthhaaye huye

ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

shabnam jiska mukhda dhoye
sooraj rang nikhaare ae
shabnam jiska mukhda dhoye
sooraj rang nikhaare ae
mast pawan ka chanchal jhonka
jiske baal sanwaare
ankiyaan jiski badi badi
jiska badan phoolon ki ladi
aaj vo kaise dil de baithhi
soch rahi hai khadi khadi
ek ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

do bolon mein sab kuchh kah gayi
pyaar mein bebas ho kar rah gayi
do bolon mein sab kuchh kah gayi
pyaar mein bebas ho kar rah gayi
dil ki baat jubaan par laayi
thhokhar khaayi aur pachhtaayi
nikhri nikhri surat hai
ladki hai ya moorat hai
yahi to hai vo albeli
jiski humen zuroorat hai
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

Today (14 November 2020) is Children’s day in India.

UN Children’s day is observed on 20 November. India began to celebrate Children’s day (on 20 November) since 1956. However, India started observing Children’s day on Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday (14 November) starting from 14 november 1964), viz after the death of Jawaharlal Nehru (14 november 1889- 25 may 1964) earlier in the year 1964.

According to wikipedia

Children’s Day is celebrated across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children. It is celebrated on 14 November every year as a tribute to India’s First Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Fondly known as Chacha Nehru among children, he advocated for children to have fulfilled education.Nehru considered children as real strength of a nation and foundation of society. On this day, many educational and motivational programs are held across India for children.

The celebration of Children’s Day in India dates back to 1956. Prior to the death of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, India celebrated Children’s Day on 20 November (the date observed as Universal Children’s Day by the United Nations). After the death of Jawaharlal Nehru, his birth anniversary was deliberated to be celebrated as Children’s Day in India. It was done so because he was very popular with the kids as Chacha Nehru, hence, a resolution was passed in the parliament to give a befitting farewell to the first Prime Minister of India.

Today 14 november 2020 is also Deepaawali !

There are some people (including myself) who were curious to know if Children’s day in India as well as Deepaawali have fallen on the same day in the the past as well.

I did some research, and found that Deepaawali has coincided with 14 november on 6 occasions in the past 120 Years. Here are the details:-

Year Day Remarks
1898 Monday
1917 Wednesday
1936 Saturday Exactly same as in 2020
1955 Monday
1974 Thursday First occastion of Deepawali falling on India’s Children’s day
2020 Saturday Exactly same as in 1936

Gregorian calendar (to determine birthdays) and Hindu calendar (to determine deepawali and other festivals) applicable in 1936 and 2020 were identical ! So the Hindu festivals of both these years fell on the same dates and same days on Gregorain Calendar!

“Naunihaal”(1967) is an ideal movie to celebrate Children’s day. The movie was about Nehru and it was about children. This movie was directed by Raj Marbros for ‘Mercury Productions, Bombay’. The movie had Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherji, Sanjeev Kumar, Master Babloo, Harendranath Chattopadhyay, Abhi Bhattacharya, Madhvi, Jagdeep, Asit Sen, Brahm Bharadwaj, Manmohan and others.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered. Here are the details:-

On the occasion of Children’s day, here is a quintessential children’s song from “Naunihaal”(1967), a song where Children’s are happy with the fact that chhutti has finally arrived. 🙂

The song is sung by Kamal Barot, Krishna Kalle and chorus. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

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