Today’s song is from film ‘Sheroo’ (1957).

The lead pair in this film was Ashok kumar and Nalini Jayawant. This was quite a popular pair in the 1950s decade. They did 11 films together. Their association started from film ‘Sangram’ (1950) and the last time they came together was after 16 years, in film ‘Toofan Mein Pyar Kahaan’ (1966). In Bombay, their bungalows were in Union Park, Chembur, opposite to each others. Saadat Hasan Manto, in one of his books mentions about their mutual attraction and a failed plan to elope and marry.

Once a pair is successful, our Indian producers, try to repeat them in their films. Ashok kumar worked with a total of about 30 Heroines in his career. He was paired with Madhubala in 5 films, With Devika Rani in 8 films and with Leela Chitnis in 9 films. His record is 21 films with Nirupa Roy – from film ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956) to ‘Dana Pani’ (1989), a whopping period of 33 years. In his times, he probably created a record of sorts.

Ashok Kumar (13-10-1911 to 10-12-2001) was a lucky actor. He did not have to struggle to become a hero. In fact, he started his career in film ‘Jeevan Naiya’ (1936) as a hero itself. He reigned the film industry as a hero from 1936 to 1960, a long period of 24 years. It was from film ‘Kanoon’ (1960) that he switched over to character roles. He worked in 310 films. Though he was in his early and late 40’s, he was a much sought after Hero even in the 1950’s decade. In this decade (from 1950 to 1959), he worked as a hero in 56 film- an average of almost 6 films an year ! In the years 1952 and 1958 he did 9 films in one year. Even as a character artiste, in 1962, he did 9 films.

Film ‘Sheroo’ was produced by SP Pictures, which was a pair of Sant Ram and Pachhi. Ram Prakash ‘Pachhi’ was the younger brother of (Bakshi) Om Prakash (Chibbar) the comedian.

Like his illustrious brother Om Prakash, Ram Prakash was also jovial by nature and had a similar sense of humour. But he had no ambition to become a comedian in Hindi movies. At the same time, Ram Prakash ‘Pachhi’ was in love of Hindi movies and wanted to become a film producer and to be master of his own destiny. One of his friends, Sant Singh, was doing well as a successful art director , who also nurtured the same ambition. They formed a film company PS Pictures and started from scratch by producing ‘Mr. Chakram’ in 1956. The film was directed by SP Bakshi and had music by Husn Lal Bhagat Ram. Bewitching Shyama (may God bless her soul) was the heroine. Next year Pachhi & Sant Singh signed an upcoming director Shakti Samant for their next movie, a crime caper ‘Sheroo’. After the grand success of his maiden directorial venture, ‘Bahu’, Shakti Samant was already signed by Nadiadwalas for two movies i.e. ‘Inspector’ and ‘Hill Station’. After the release of ‘Sheroo’, Pachhi helped Shakti Samant to become a producer and in 1958, he produced and directed the highly successful ‘Howrah Bridge’. His elder brother directed ‘Kanhaiyya’ in 1959 for PS Pictures, which had Raj Kapoor and Nutan, the hit pair of ‘Anari’ (1959) and its music was by Shankar Jaikishan. Financial result of the movie was depressing, as the movie had illogical story.

In 1960, Sant Singh & Pachhi again engaged Shakti Samant for their movie ‘Jaali Note’. They signed OP Nayyar as the music director and the beautiful pair of Dev Anand and Madhubala . Encouraged with the positive response and success of the movie, the producers duo announced a crime movie ‘Hong Kong’ (1962), in colour. This film was to be directed by Shakti Samant with the super hit pair of ‘Howrah Bridge’ Madhubala and Ashok Kumar, along with king of rhythm OP Nayyar. It was decided to shoot the crime movie, at the exotic locales of South East Asia like Singapore, Bangkok, Rangoon & Hong Kong. Pachhi got a jolt when Madhubala opted out from the project due to her ill health and subsequently Shakti Samant also declined to be associated with the venture. Discouraged by the turn of events, Pachhi decided to tackle the problem by taking the bull by the horns and made up his mind to direct the movie himself. He brought the ‘Sasural’ fame Kannada actress B Saroja Devi on board as heroine. It was the last movie (released in 1962) which was made by two friends Sardar Sant Singh and Ram Prakash Pachhi. After this film they mutually decided to end their partnership. Now Pachhi was alone, dejected, but determined to go ahead. He produced a path breaking film which in its time was miles ahead of all Hindi movies and was shot at foreign locales around the planet – ‘Around The World’ (1967). The film turned out to be a debacle.

In 1974, Pachhi produced and directed ‘International Crook’. He got a shock of his life, when censor board suggested many major cuts, after viewing his big budget film. He approached the Appellate Tribunal to seek justice. The Appellate Tribunal, instead of granting relief, objected to the story itself and banned the movie altogether. The fact of the matter was, in his capacity as the president of the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA), he had many face-off’s with the authorities, in the past, for the legitimate causes of film industry. Now it was the payback time for the authorities in power. They harassed him, although the movie had nothing objectionable. It had an escapist story, with usual blending of romance, dance & music. It was shot at various location around the world. Pachhi was heartbroken, but somehow he re-shot some portion, omitted most of the shots & presented again to censor. Censor gave him certificate with A stamp, which was as good as killing half the movie. The final print had lot of continuity jumps & was inconclusive, despite the patch works. The opening of the movie at theatres was worse than the worst, which left Pachhi inconsolable .

Perhaps, it was the destiny. His elder brother Om Prakash had faced it with ‘Jahan Ara’ (1964), and his eldest brother Bakshi Jang Bahadur with ‘Tipu Sultan’ (1959). Pachhi after a while decided to start from the scratch and made ‘Eent Ka Jawab Pathar’, with small star cast and controlled budget. The only luxury, he allowed himself was that he signed Shankar Jaikishan again for music and shot the movie in Vista Vision. The movie was released in 1982 and sadly like a defeated gambler, Pachhi lost once again. Bakhshi Jang Bahadur had already gone and Pachhi also passed away soon after. It was a big shock for Om Prakash, who lost his wife after some time. Pachhi was a jolly and energetic fellow, who regaled his audience by showing exciting foreign locations. He will be remembered for his occasional appearances as a jolly natured person in various movies, and also as a visionary. He is the one who introduced 70 mm format first time in the Indian film industry.

The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar,  Nalini Jayawant, Anup kumar, Madan Puri, Chaman Puri, Om Prakash, Leela Mishra, Shyam Kumar,  Krishna Kant etc etc. The name of Krishna Kant or KK is known to many people. Krishnakant (15-9-1922 to 24-10-2016) was a noted character actor of long standing. His career spanned from 1943 to 1989, a whopping 46 years. After retirement he had settled in Surat, Gujarat.  His life story has been made into a Gujarati book ‘Guzara Hua Zamana’ written by the famous author Shri Biren Kothari ji. He has gifted me a copy of this book. Reading this book takes you into those times. KK had a knack of telling the history in an interesting way, with lot many photographs. Till the last day (94 years) his memory was excellent. During my visit to Surat in early 2016, I could not meet him, due to paucity of time. This will pinch me forever. Our Sudhir ji and Bakshish Singh ji have met him.

Krishnakant acted in 109 Hindi, 16 Gujarati, 2 Bangla and 2 English movies. He has also directed 2 Hindi and 13 Gujarati films. In addition, he was active on TV in his later years. He acted in 8 Hindi and 6 Gujarati serials and directed 3 Hindi serials. He also acted in 1 Hindi and 7 Gujarati stage dramas. Here is his short bio sketch,

Krishnakant (15-9-1922 to 24-10-2016)

Gujarati and Hindi actor and director born in Howrah, Bengal, as Krishnakant Maganlal Bukhanwala. Son of a textile engineer; educated in Surat and in Bombay. Obtained a diploma in radio and electrical engineering (1940); then joined the Rooptara Studio in Bombay, working in the sound department. Assisted Nitin Bose for five years, then worked with Aravind Sen on ‘Muqaddar’ (also acting in it) and with Subodh Mukherjee (‘Paying Guest’, 1957). First major acting role in Phani Majumdar’s ‘Andolan’; other notable roles are a paralytic in Amiya Chakravarty’s ‘Patita’ and the villain in Shakti Samant’s ‘Detective’. Left films in the late 1950s to concentrate on Gujarati theatre work (e.g. Pravin Joshi’s Manas Name Karigar) mainly with Harkrishen Mehta’s group. Returned to cinema in the early 70s; turned to direction with Dakurani Ganga, adapting Mehta’s novel Pravaha Paltavyo. Directed a series of Gujarati films based on plays or films from other languages: e.g. Visamo based on Harkrishen Mehta’s play, in which he acted the role of an old teacher, recalling Paranjpe’s Oon Paoos (1954) and Panthulu’s School Master (1958). Also adapted Anant Mane’s Manini (1961) as Maa Dikri. With these films he introduced a novel style of urban entertainment to Gujarati cinema, although relying on conventional reformist melodrama plots about the joint family, the generation gap and the exploitation of women. Also noted actor on Hindi and Gujarati television.

(Adapted from Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema)

‘Sheroo’ is about a soldier of second world war who returns to his town for a peaceful retired life. Instead he has to deal with the Government babus and various rules. For a soldier, this indiscipline, corruption and lethargy was beyond tolerance. He is sad when his mother dies and very furious when his  wife is kidnapped by villains of the town. Frustrated Sheroo resorts to his gun to solve the problem.

I remember having seen a film of Nana Patekar. The film was ‘Prahar’ (1991). The story has similarity except the end. After 35 years Hindi cinema had become more direct and the end of these two films having similar content was entirely different. Instead of subtle and suggestive results, Nana Patekar is shown to punish the enemies of the society with death penalty, unlike the ‘Sheroo’ of 1957. This also reflects our modern society thinking.

The music is by Madan Mohan and he has given some wonderful songs. The top 2 songs, one by Rafi (“O Mati Ke Putle, Itna Na Kar Tu Gumaan”) and the other by Lata (“Naino Mein Pyar Doley, Dil Ka Qaraar Doley”) are already discussed. Today’s song, byManna Dey is the third top song. This is the 5th song from Sheroo to be discussed here. Enjoy this melodious classical based bhajan. . .

parbhu dawar chali parbhu ki dasi
ek aas liye ek pyaas liye
parbhu dawar chali parbhu ki dasi
ek aas liye ek pyaas liye
parbhu dawar chali

muskaan ke phool sajaaye huye
naino ke deep jalaaye huye
muskaan ke phool sajaaye huye
naino ke deep jalaaye huye
nikli preetam ke rijhane ko
man me apne visvaas liye

parbhu dawar chali parbhu ki dasi
ek aas liye ek pyaas liye
parbhu dawar chali

Today’s song is from film ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962). This film was about the divine quality of brotherly love between step-brothers, like Ram-Laxman or Ram-Bharat. The film had its quota of all possible tear jerking emotions and the artful close relatives who would enjoy the sorrow and misery of the otherwise united family. Actually, this was a most suitable story for a south Indian film, like AVM, who specialised in such movies.

This film’s story was based on famous Bangla author Sarat Chandra Chatopadhyaya’s novel ‘Baikunther Will’ (1920). There was another novel containing the word “will”, viz ‘Krishnakanter Will’ which was penned by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay in 1878.

These novels became the basis of several films in Bangla, Hindi and Tamil etc. The first silent movie came in 1927. Its Hindi version came in 1932 as ‘Krishnakant Ka Wasiyatnama’. Its latest Bangla version came in 2007 and Tamil film ‘Rohini’ came in 1953. However ‘Baikunther Will’ was not that popular and only one Bangla and one Hindi film was based on this novel. Screenplay and dialogues of Sautela Bhai were by Dev Kishen and film was directed by Mahesh Kaul.

Mahesh Kaul (1911-1972) was born in Lahore and educated in Moni College, Nagpur. After graduation, he worked as a journalist and then as a bank manager. He then started his career in films as a lyricist and dialogue writer. He debuted as an actor in KA Abbas scripted film ‘Naya Sansar’ (1941) and played Dronacharya’s role in film ‘Mahatma Vidur’ (1943). He was also in ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942). His first film as a director was ‘Angoori’ in 1943. Then came ‘Paristan’ (1944). He produced and directed film ‘Gopinath’ (1948), with Raj Kapoor and IPTA actress Tripti Mitra. Some of his major directorial ventures were ‘Naujawan’ (1951), ‘Akhri Dao’ (1958), ‘Talaaq’ (1958), ‘Kagaz Ke Phool’ (1959). As an actor his notable films are ‘Sautela Bhai’, ‘Palki’ (1967), ‘Sapnon Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971) etc. His last film ‘Agni Rekha’ came after his death, in 1973.

The cast of film ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) is Guru Dutt, Bipin Gupta, Pranoti Ghosh Bhattacharya, Rajkumar, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Ratna, Kanhaiyalal, SN Bannerji, Honey Irani, Sarosh irani etc. The music was composed by Anil Biswas.

By the time he was working on this film, Anil Biswas had lost interest in Bombay film world. The major reason being that with many new composers around, his demand had significantly diminished. He got only one more film after this – the film by his friend Motilal – ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965). He was now looking for an alternative avenue in the field of music. He tried business outside music, but did not fare well at all. Due to all this and being unable to produce what the changing taste of the audience wanted, made his music most ordinary. But then, a diamond is a diamond. He gave a gem song “Ja Ja Re Baalma” in this film.

In the cast one finds two interesting names. One is Raaj kumar and the other is Sarosh Irani. For a long time, inspite of having seen the film, I was under the impression that this was an early film of Raajkumar ( Jaani wala). When Sudhir ji discussed a song from this film here, on 5-5-2011, I commented forcefully that this was the same Raaj kumar who was famous for his dialogue-bazi. Dear Sudhir ji tried to bring sense to the discussion, by giving some proof claiming that he was somebody else, but I was not convinced. Afterwards, we had a lot of emal exchange on the identity of this actor, in which even Dr.Surjit singh ji also jumped in with some photographs. Anyway, that time the discussion remained incomplete and indecisive, without any conclusion.

Later, however, I realised that I was wrong in this case and others were right. ‘This’ Rajkumar indeed was someone different. I started searching for details and found that there were actually 5 Rajkumars operating at the same time in Hindi films. Almost in the same period. The Maitri Manthan blog was also trying to solve this mystery and they were successful. ‘This’ Rajkumar was identified as Rajkumar Khatri. I have very recently given all his details in my post on the song “Jaag Re Jogi Jaag Re” from the film ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953) in August 2017, hence I am not repeating that here.

I wish to draw your attention to the other interesting name – Sarosh Irani, in the cast of the film. From the name I suspected that Sarosh might be related to Daisy/Honey Irani. I remember in 2011, we were debating if Sarosh is a male or female and our Raja ji had confirmed that it was a male name indeed. I once again wish to thank the Maitri Manthan blog which located and intervieed the daughter of Sarosh Irani. I reproduce here a concise adaptation of his biography as it came out from the interview, for our readers,

Sarosh ji was born to Perin and Noshir Irani on 7 August, 1948 in Bombay. He is third among five siblings, namely, MenkaBunnySaroshDaisy and Honey. In 1979 he married Mona ji  and the couple is blessed with two lovely daughters, Sabah and Delnaaz. He did his initial schooling in Deolali’s well-known boarding school, The Barnes School. After he joined the film industry he went to St. Teresa’s High School in Bandra.

After his stint as a child-actor he and his brother, Bunny started their own construction company, B Irani S Irani.  In 1976 looking at favourable opportunities he went to Iran where he worked in the construction business. When the war broke out he was forced by the family to return and he came back to India with his wife towards the end of 1983. On his return he joined his brother Bunny (now retired) who by then was looking after the Irani CafeB Merwan which was started by their grandfather.

Sarosh ji’s first film as a child-actor was Masoom released in 1960.  He was finalised to play the eldest of the three siblings in the film. Little Honey Irani was chosen to play his younger sister. The song “Nani Teri Morni Ko More Le Gaye picturized on her, sung by Ranu Mukherjee.

Sarosh ji says “Satyen Bose was a good director. He had a lot of patience, he would wait till we gave the shot just like he had visualised. He would keep encouraging, even enact and show us at times. He was very friendly, never rude. I had a nice time shooting with him. Soon I got offers for Aarti (1962) and Sautela Bhai (1962). I started liking acting.

Tarachand Barjatya‘s Aarti (1962) was directed by Phani MajumdarAlok Bharati‘s Sautela Bhai (1962) directed by Mahesh Kaul was based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay‘s “Baikunther Will” and had Pranoti GhoshBipin GuptaGuru DuttRaj Kumar and Kanhaiyalal playing pivotal parts. It’s a story of two step-brothers, the elder one a good-hearted rustic played by Guru Dutt and the younger, an educated weakling, spoiled by his crooked friends played by Raj Kumar. The film was honoured with the All India Certificate of Merit for the Third Best Feature Film at the 10th National Film Awards. The film is also known for Guru Dutt’s best ever performance as an actor. Sarosh ji played his childhood part. This adjoining scene from the film made us instant admirers of this child star.

Sarosh ji did a total of 5 films as a child actor – Masoom (1960), Aarti (1962), Sautela Bhai (1962), Man Mauji (1962) and Grahasti (1963). By the time Grahasti (1963) was released Sarosh ji was about 15 years old, an age when one is neither a child nor an adult and child stars hardly get acting assignments. In his short acting career Sarosh ji has left a mark, Masoom (1960) and Sautela Bhai (1962) are among our most loved films.

Around 1967 Sarosh ji joined his brother-in-law Kamran as an assistant director. The first film he assisted on was Watan Se Door (1968) which had Dara Singh and Nishi in leading roles. He assisted Kamran ji on about six films including Chalbaaz (1969) and Aisa Bhi Hota Hai(1971). Since then he hasn’t been associated with the film Industry directly but is glad to see the next generation, his nephews and nieces, Farah KhanSajid KhanFarhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar do well and make a mark in the entertainment  industry.

The story of the film Sautela Bhai is…..

Baikunth Muzumdar (Bipin Gupta) is a small time grocery merchant, having property and money in a village. After his first wife’s death, who has borne him a child, he gets marries again to Bhawani (Pranoti Bhattachrya). Contrary to everybody’s fears, Bhawani gives her love to Gokul, the infant. When she gets her own son, Vinod, both brothers love each others, like Ram-Laxman. Gokul (Guru Dutt) looks after family business, while Vinod (Rajkumar Khatri) goes to Calcutta for college studies. There, he gets into bad company and starts drinking etc.

Meanwhile, Baikunth dies after making a will, giving all property to Gokul, on wife’s instructions, as she is sure that Gokul will look after Vinod very well. When Vinod comes back, he is taunted by Gokul’s wife and father in law (Kanhaiyalal). Vinod thinks, being a step brother, Gokul has instigated this. He leaves the house with his mother against her will. He also plans to put a case against Gokul.

When Gokul learns all this, he goes to Vinod’s house, drags him out, beats him and gives away all the property to him in exchange of his love, which he professes with tears. Seeing all this, Vinod repents and realises how much Gokul loves him. He begs pardon and then all is well in the end. (646)

The film had 8 songs. 3 songs are already discussed. Today’s song is the fourth song. The situation of the song is, folk singers and dancers depict the love of Ram, Laxman and Bharat, when Ram is ordered to 14 years’ exile and Bharat is to be crowned as per Kaikeyi’s wishes. The song and scenes are symbolic of love between ‘Sautela Bhais’ of Ramayana. The young Gokul and Vinod are watching this drama, sitting on one mother’s lap, while the family too watches this. One of the singers is Pankaj Mitra, about whom I do not know anything. As per HFGK, Anil Biswas used 9 playback singers for 8 songs. Pankaj Mitra, Biswas and Arun Dutt are unfamiliar names. Pankaj Mitra seems to have sung songs in some Hindi films like ‘Sagina’ (1974), ‘Ganga Dhaam’ (1980), ‘Phagun’ (1973), ‘Mera Jeevan’ (1976), ‘Kinaara’ (1977), ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1984), ‘Grih Pravesh’ (1980), ‘Rihaaee’ (1980), ‘Raja Hindustani’ (1996) and ‘Mriggya’ (1976).

“Naag Champa”(1958) was produced and directed by Vinod Desai for Vinod Films, Bombay. This mythological movie hadNirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Kammo, Sapru, Sundar, Baby Uma, Lalita Pawar, C J apndey, Dubey, Santosh Kumar, Uma Dutt, Nemo, R Khanna, Chhotelal, Maqbool, Devchand etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from “Naag Champa”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and female chorus. Anjaan and Indra Kapoor are jointly credited as the lyricist of this song. Music is composed by Manna Dey.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. Seeing that Lata sang as many as four songs in this movie, one can assume that she sang for the leading lady, viz Nirupa Roy. So my guess is that this song was picturised on Nirupa Roy and others playing her sahelis.

I have not been able to get a word (may be more) right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

“Vikramadiyta”(1945) was directed by Vijay Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The historical movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Ratnamala, Baburao Pendharkar, Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Bhagwandas, Jillo etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Vikramadiyta”(1945) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rajkumari and Manna Dey. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair.

I have not been able to get the lyrics of this song right at one place. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the gaps/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable. The lyrics of this romantic song are in chaste Sanskritised Hindi, which to mind is quite appropriate and extremely suitable for a song of this nature. It is a rare song that deserves to be better known among music lovers. To those who may be wondering, this song is about a ras ka lobhi bhanwra getting trapped inside a flower. The lady is wondering why the lotus flower is swaying despite there being no breeze, and the gentleman (King Vikramaditya most probably) explains that is a bhanwra, trapped inside the flower that is trying to come out. Very nice imagination from the poet.

Hullo to Atuldom

‘Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki’ is a movie released in 1980. It was directed by Hiren Nag and produced by Ramraj Nahata. It had a star cast of Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Raj Kiran, Rameshwari, Kaajal Kiran, Shashikala, Dina Pathak, Madan Puri etc. Songs were written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have never seen the movie and so I have no idea what it was all about.

But one song from that movie has stayed in my memory. The playback for that song is by Manna Dey with Dilraj Kaur. What has stuck with me since I saw it on Doordarshan’s Chaayageet/Chitrahaar is the sight of Ashok Kumar and Shashikala living it up at a disco.

That was the period when Ashok Kumar used play a lovable old man who doesn’t mind enjoying himself occasionally with wine, women etc. All these would many-a-times be just to irritate a younger character or bring a wayward youngster to toe his line. But all his roles were very cute. Very often his partner would be the other lovable old man Pran, in addition he used to team up with Utpal Dutt, AK Hangal, and sometimes his team mate would be any actress with whom he has paired romantically in his younger days. Like in today’s song he is merrily dancing with Shashikala who herself was a dancing star in her younger days. Before this the two had appeared in ‘Khubsoorat’ as Sasur and Bahu. And yes, that film also is from 1980. 🙂 In this film, we see  Shashikala do a kathak piece as Dada Moni plays the tabla. I also remember Shashikala with Ashok Kumar in BR Chopra’s ‘Gumraah’ (1963) too.

I am sure many of the regular followers of this blog will remember that today is Dada Moni’s birth anniversary. He would have been 106. Let us remember him with this lively party song.

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्

Touch the Sky with Glory

What an appropriate motto this is, for the flying heroes of our national force that is responsible for the defense of our nation’s skies, and the keepers of our aerial security. The Indian Air Force, the aerial arm of our armed forces, celebrated its 85 anniversary yesterday – 8th October, 2017.

War is never a good thing. No one wins in a war. Everyone loses. Behind the victories claimed by the conquerors, there always are brutal losses which one does not speak of. But then, if a war is thrust upon someone, then standing up and fighting for what is right is the inevitable path to be taken.  The lines written by Kaifi Azmi in this song, express this so well,

jung rahmat hai ke laanat, ye sawaal ab na uthe
jung jab aa hi gayi sar pe to rahmat hogi

जंग रहमत है के लानत, ये सवाल अब ना उठे
जंग जब आ ही गई सर पे तो रहमत होगी

This post is a salute to the fearless warriors of our armed forces, and especially our Air Force, on this day of celebrating its 85 years of history.

The origins of the Indian Air Force are in the Royal Air Force of Great Britain. India was under the British rule in 1932, when the decision was taken to set up an auxiliary air force unit in India, under the larger umbrella of the Royal Air Force.

In 1928-29 the Government of India (under British rule) decided to induct some Indians in the Royal Air Force. The first six Indians selected to undergo two years of flying training at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell were Subroto Mukherjee, Harish Chandra Sircar, Aizad Baksh Awan, Bhupendra Singh, Amarjeet Singh and JN Tandon. After completing their training at Cranwell, the Indian pilots passed through the Army Cooperation School at Old Sarum in Wiltshire. After the completion of their training, five of these men were commissioned into service with the Royal Air Force. JN Tandon, on account of his short stature, was reverted to a logistic role, and not commissioned for flying.

On 8th October, 1932, the Indian Air Force Act was passed by the Indian Legislative Assembly, and the Indian Air Force was born. The Indian Air Force was established as an auxiliary air force of the Royal Air Force. The new force adopted the uniforms, badges, brevets and insignia of the Royal Air Force.

The first five pilots commissioned into the IAF were the same five who had been inducted into the Royal Air Force after completing their training at RAF Cranwell – Harish Chandra Sircar, Subroto Mukerjee, Bhupendra Singh, Aizad Baksh Awan and Amarjeet Singh. All of them were commissioned as Pilot Officers. Subroto Mukerjee later went on to become the IAF’s first Indian Chief of the Air Staff.

On 1 April 1933, the Indian Air Force got its first flying machines – four Westland Wapiti biplanes. The IAF commissioned its first squadron, No. 1 Squadron, at Karachi (now in Pakistan) with five Indian pilots listed above. The Indian pilots were led by RAF Commanding officer Flight Lieutenant (later Air Vice Marshal) Cecil Bouchier.

Subsequent batches inducted before World War II included Aspy Engineer, KK Majumdar, Narendra, Daljit Singh, Henry Runganadhan, RHD Singh, Baba Mehar Singh, SN Goyal, Prithpal Singh and Arjan Singh. Here is another name that is very familiar to all – Arjan Singh went on to become the first and only Air Chief designated as the Marshal of the Air Force (MAF). He is the only five star officer in the history of our Air Force. MAF Arjan Singh recently passed away (16th September, 2017) in Delhi, at the age of 98.

In recognition of the services rendered by the IAF during the World War II, King George VI conferred the prefix “Royal” in 1945. Thereafter the IAF was referred to as Royal Indian Air Force. In 1947, when the British left the Indian sub-continent, and the partition of this country happened the military forces were also partitioned. On 15th August, 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force gave up 3 divisions which were geographically based in the newly formed territories of Pakistan, and the Royal Pakistan Air Force was born.

Although the nation supposedly attained independence on 15th Aug, 1947, it continued to be a Dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations, which means that we as a nation, were actually still paying our allegiance to the British Crown. In January 1950, when India adopted their own Constitution, and became a republic, the prefix “Royal” was dropped and the force became truly the Indian Air Force. However, the person at the head of the Air Force continued to be a non-Indian till 1954. As per seniority and age, the Air Force continued with three more Air Chief Marshals from 1947 to 1954. In 1954, the last of the Birtish chiefs superannuated from the top position, and the mantle of the top official came to Air Marshal Subroto Mukherjee, the first Indian head of the Indian Air Force.

The IAF has seen serious action in the four wars that have been fought with Pakistan (1948, 1965, 1971 and 1999). The force was not utilized during the 1962 conflict with China, despite being the superior air power in the region at that time. China’s forays into the Himalayan regions were recent at that time and their air force did not have the reach to come up to the Indo-China borders. A lack of political will and vision, one may say, and the IAF was utilized only for supplying the front lines.

Although a child (in single digits) at that time, my memories of the 1965 war are still quite detailed. The Pakistan Air Force was supposedly the superior force, equipped with American supplied F-86 Sabre jets, with the Indian Air Force flying the comparatively puny Gnat and Mystere aircrafts. But the valor and the heroism of the Indian pilots is now the stuff of a very proud history. The supposedly puny Gnat fighter planes were responsible for downing 6 Sabre jets, and earned the nickname of ‘Sabre Slayers’. Names like Sqadron Leader Keelor (actually two brother flyers – Trevor and Denzill) and Flying Officer Nebb, became household heroes, as the news poured in every day about the victories of the Indian Air Force.

The force was led by Air Marshal Arjan Singh during this period of conflict. Retired and past officers of the Air Force remember him dearly as a valiant leader who led from the front. While the conflict was in progress, the Air Marshal refused to stay put in Delhi, and was constantly visiting the front line airfields, meeting his officers and pilots, each one of them personally. So many of his people have consistently mentioned his reaching out to his men, how he would remember the names of each one of them, how he would be interested in knowing the details of their exploits in the air. And not just that, he reached out personally to the families of the heroes, and taking care to connect with the widowed wives and children of the flyers who laid down their lives in action.

He put the interest and safety of his airmen before his own. Close friend and former Air Chief Marshal NC Suri narrates an episode that underlines this. The Canberra bomber planes, one of the planes with the IAF, had a peculiar design. The pilot’s seat was designed as an ejection seat (that allows the pilot to eject automatically from the aircraft, in case of an emergency). However, the navigator seat was not, and the navigator, in the time of an emergency, had to physically disengage himself from the seat, break open some window and jump out of the aircraft. Whenever Arjan Singh flew a Canberra, he would refuse to take out the safety pin of the pilot seat’s ejection mechanism, rendering it ineffective. In other words, he was also incapable of ejecting from the aircraft, if an emergency arose. ACM NC Suri adds “So here is a man who felt that his navigator was equally important to him, which was very remarkable.”.

Yes, ‘Touch the Sky with Glory’, a motto that MAF Arjan Singh believed in and also lived by. The saga of our nation’s Air Force is full of numerous such people and their acts of valor and heroism.

As a salute to the brave airmen of our Air Force, I present this rousing song of bravery and leadership, from the 1973 film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. Folks will remember this film one of the very few films made on the theme of Indian Air Force, its airmen and their exploits and triumphs. The time frame it was released indicates that it covered the events of the then recent past, i.e. the 1971 war with Pakistan.

The song itself needs no introduction – it has been one of the most popular patriotic songs to emerge from Hindi films. The words are from the pen of Kaifi Azmi, and the rousing marching music comes from the baton of Madan Mohan. The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Manna Dey. In the film, this song appears at 3 places. In the beginning when the titles start to roll, somewhat later once again when the war with the enemy is in full swing, and at the end, as the film comes to a close. Interestingly enough, the titles of the film do no start till almost twelve and a half minutes into the film. (So this song cannot be categorized as the film opening song.)

We see a few characters in the video clip, especially in the first part. There is Rajkumar, Chetan Anand, Balraj Sahni, Veena, Vijay Anand, Priya Rajvansh, Parikshit Sahni etc. I have edited to present all the three parts of this song as a single clip. I have retained a few seconds of the scene just prior to the start of the first part – I really like the dialogue rendered by Rajkumar, just as the song starts.

So here is a salute and a tribute – to the daring ‘jaanbaaz’ flyers and the brave ground and support staff, that man this valiant Air Force – the safe keepers of the Indian airspace.

नभ: स्पृशम् दीप्तम्
Jai Hind.

[Ed Note: This song is the fourth and final one from this film to be posted on our blog. With this post, the film ‘Hindustan Ki Qasam’ joins the list of films with all songs posted.]

Today’s song is from a well known film ‘Baadbaan’ (1954). Well known for the simple reason that this was the last film coming from a one-time giant film studio Bombay Talkies. it was the last ditch effort of all the well wishers and workers of Bombay Talkies to save the company from closing down. Unfortunately the effort did not succeed and it was curtains for Bombay Talkies with this movie.
