My God ! This is my 900th post on the Blog !

I just can’t believe it. I feel like having written my First post just the other day. How time flies !

But this also means that I have enjoyed writing posts on this Blog. It has been exactly 8 years that I have been writing posts, primarily on old time films, songs and the people connected with them. My first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, when I was 72 year old. At the end of the 8 years period, I have 900 articles on my name and I am 80 years old.

When my first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, I had already posted 400 comments, film reviews and information tit bits on old films on the Blog. With so much of information, it was expected by Atulites that someday I will write posts. Personally. I had never thought of that. There is a story behind how my posts started appearing on this Blog.

At the end of September 2012, one of my friends sent me a song from the film Savitri-1937. I was quite excited to get such a rare song. Savitri-37 was the first Mythological film by Bombay Talkies and also their popular Hero Ashok Kumar ( later he acted in one more Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu”-46. Thank God he never acted in another Mythological film ! He was a perfect misfit in them.). I wrote to Atul ji that I had that song and suggested that he should post it. I volunteered to provide the necessary details of the film etc. He wrote back asking me to send him the information on that song. Enthusiastically, I wrote a long essay-like post about the film, song, story etc. and sent it to him, so that he should post the rare song.

Next day i.e. on 1-10-2012, I got an email from Atul ji that he has posted the write up on film Savitri song, as my Post. I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, I was thrilled too ! My post and on this Blog ? How sweet ! By evening, there were 36 comments on the post. Most Atulites welcomed my step of becoming a post contributor. I was really overwhelmed. Then I decided, anyway I was in the Swimming Pool, so why not enjoy swimming ?

Thus started my journey of 900 posts. All the credit goes to our Leader- ATUL JI. His encouragement, motivation and help from time to time was an asset for me. Atul ji is not expressive about the good deeds he does, but I am indebted to him. I learnt using the Computer when I was past my 70 years of age. So, there used to be many mistakes in my typing the articles like in using the upper/lower cases, use of Capitals, Punctuation marks, construction of sentences etc etc. But Atul ji and Sudhir ji stretched their tolerance limits to maximum and accepted me as I was. Since 2018 onwards, I conscientiously made changes in my writing, checking the article for mistakes, doing corrections before sending it etc. I also changed the type of the script Font that I was using, for more clarity of reading and today, I feel, my writings are far better than earlier times. Sudhir ji’s help has been particularly useful in the last 8 years. Thank you, ATUL JI and SUDHIR JI, for making me what I am today in the Blogosphere and amongst the like minded people of the Internet, Facebook etc.

My 800th post was on 29-9-2019. The 900th post too is in September. Thanks to all my readers, friends, Group Atulites and well wishers.

Today’s song is from the film Malati Madhav-1955. This is a story from the Sanskrit play ‘Malti Madhav’ written by Bhavbhuti. Wikipedia has this to say about Bhavbhuti and the story of Malati Madhav….

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

Today’s song is sung by Malati Pande and chorus. Malati Pande is one of my most favourite marathi singers. Her Bhavgeets in the 50’s decade were extremely popular in Maharashtra and with all the Marathi people wherever they were in the world. Malati Pande was also a Classical singer and has sung very few songs in Hindi films, but excelled in Classical and Marathi songs. Her songs like ” tya tithe, palikade, tikde, maziya priyeche zopde” or ” kunihi paay naka vajavu” are evergreen. She is one of those Marathi singers like Manik Verma, Jyotsna Bhole, Hirabai Badodekar, Saraswati Rane, Shobha Gurtu, Nalini Mulgaonkar, Ram Marathe, Bhimsen Joshi, D.V.Paluskar etc, who just visited Hindi films out of curiosity, but returned to their comfort zones immediately.

Malati was born on 19-4-1930 at Poona, She was attracted to music from her childhood. She was trained by several teachers like Bhaskarrao Ghodke, Trivedi Master, Vilayat Hussain Khan, Vinayak buwa Patwardhan, Bholanath Ghatt and also her husband Pt. Padmakar Barve. At the age of 15 years, she was invited to sing on A.I.R. Poona. She did her Ph.D in Music.

When Sudhir Phadke brought her to Prabhat for audition, for songs of Marathi version of ‘ Aagey Badho ‘-47, Fattelal was very happy with her style of singing and thanked Phadke. Malati Pande’s first lori song “kunihi Paay Naka vajavoo…” was with Singer & Music Director Gajanan Watve and poet Shrinivas Kharkar. It is said that afterwards, many singers and music directors recorded lori songs, but Malati Pande’s this lori song is the best and is still remembered by the Marathi listeners.

Malati Pande sang many Marathi songs under the music direction of Gajanan Watve, Sudhir Phadke, Ram Phatak, Shrinivas Khale, Datta Dawjekar, Madhukar Pathak etc.

Malati Pande sang some 15 Hindi songs under the music direction of K. Bhole, Avinash Vyas, Sudhir Phadke in the following Hindi films – Seeta Swayamvar-48, Maya Bazar-49, Shrikrishna Satyabhama-51, Shri Vishnu Bhagwan-51 and Malati Madhav-55.

Malati married classical singer Pt. Padmakar Barve. They have a son Rajiv Barve who is a singer. His daughter Priyanka Barve is also a famous singer in Marathi and Hindi films. Malati Pande died on 27-12-1997.

Let us now enjoy her last song in Hindi films…

Lyrics

Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re

Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
aarsi na dekho
kahin drishti lag jaaye re
drishti lag jaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re

Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re

nakh range hain laadli ke
choomti usha charan
nakh range hain laadli ke
choomti usha charan
jaise laal laal kamal
khil rahe hain man haran
jaise laal laal kamal
khil rahe hain man haran
ye charan ki jodi kahin
door chali jaaye re
door chali jaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re

mukh hai jaise chandr chaandni si roop mohani
mukh hai jaise chandr chaandni si roop mohani
apni aaj kal paraayi hogi sakhi sohini

dekho kaali naagin si veni lehraaye re
veni lehraaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
aarsi na dekho
kahin drishti lag jaaye re
drishti lag jaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
sundari suhhaaye re
