Welcome all to today’s post.

Today’s song – ‘poetry recitation’ is the second offering from this movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ to appear on the blog. The first ‘poem-post’ from this movie – “Ek Baar Priye Tum Aa Jao“, was posted on the blog on 05.02.2022. The poem in this first post was written and recited by poet-lyricist Maya Govind.

‘Kavi Sammelan’ was directed by Kedar Sharma for Rajshri Productions Pvt Ltd. It was produced by Tarachand Badjatya.This film is  live recording of a stellar gathering of poets, who came together on one stage to present and sing their poems, in 1968. Compering of this program and introducing the poets was done by Ramrikh Manhar. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1972 (within few days now this movie will complete its ‘fifty years’).

The footnote for this movie page in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that ‘Bharat ke shreshthhtam Kavi pehli baar ek saath rajat-pat par pesh kiye gaye thhe’. Poems of following ‘poets’ are included in this movie.

(Addenda in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for this movie mentions that there were two more creations by Vimlesh and Paras Bhramar in this movie.)

Today’s poem is written by Kaka Hathrasi. On screen Kaka Hathrasi himself has recited this poem which is a ‘humorous poem’ (haasya kavita), the genre of poems, which Kaka Hathrasi is well known for. Kata Hathrasi (real name Prabhulal Garg) was born on 18th September, 1906 in Hathras (in United Provinces of Agra and Oudh in British India), in a ‘Agrawal Vaishya’ family. Kaka has himself written about his date of birth as below.

Din athharah sitamber, Agrawal parivaar
Unnisau chhah mein liyaa, kaka ne avatar
😊

His ancestors came from Gokul Mahawan and settled in Hathras. They were in the business of selling of utensils. Grandfather of Kaka Shri Sitaram continued the business he got from his father. When the property was divided Kaka’s father Shri Shivlal Garg had to work in a ‘utensils’ shop as a ‘munim’.

The year Kaka born was the time when ‘plague’ had spread in India. Many families lost their near and dear ones in that pandemic and the tragedy of plague destroyed many families. Kaka’s family also suffered in this pandemic. And when Kaka was only 15 days old, he lost his father. His mother Barfidevi, a twenty-year-old housewife then, was grief-stricken. Kaka’s elder brother Bhajanlal was only two years old then.

His father could only leave a small house in Hathras as his property and nothing more that that with which the family could survive. Kaka’s mother took Kaka and his brother to Iglas where her parents and brothers were staying. Kaka’s maternal uncles helped his mother in all the way as possible. However, she could not get mental peace there and she decided to return to Hathras to their home. Her brothers arranged for a regular financial help for the family. When Kaka was ten years old his maternal uncle brought him to Iglas for education. After completing his education Kaka took a job at Rs.6/- per month salary where he was supposed to keep accounts and records of the weight of the grain bags.

Kaka used to take part in plays while he was in school and his character as ‘Kaka’ in one of the plays got him this name as Kaka and people used to call him by the name of Kaka. He kept the same name and added his place of birth Hathras to his name. When he took up writing he continue to write by the name of Kaka Hathrasi.

His first book ‘Kaka Ki Kachehari’ was published in 1946. Some stories and some of his humorous poems were compiled in this book. By this time Kaka had become a well-known personality of ‘humorous and satirical’ poems and a regular part of ‘Hasya Kavi Sammelans’. He used to keep beard, and this look of him got popular too.

Kaka wrote about his ‘beard’

kaka daadhhi raakhiye, bin daadhhi sab soon
jyon massoorie ke bina vyarth dehradun
vyarth dehradun isi se nar ki shobhaa
daadhhi se hi pragati kar gaye sant vinoba
manu vashishthha yadi daadhhi munh par nahin rakhaate
to kya bhagwaan ram ke guru ban jaate

काका दाड़ी राखिए बिन दाड़ी सब सून
ज्यों मसूरी के बिना व्यर्थ देहरादून
व्यर्थ देहरादून इसी से नर की शोभा
दाड़ी से ही प्रगति कर गए सन्त विनोबा
मुनि वशिष्ठ यदि दाड़ी मुंह पर नहीं रखाते
तो क्या भगवान राम के गुरु बन जाते

In 1957 Kaka was invited to a Kavi Sammelan held at Red Fort Delhi. On this occasion Kaka was asked to present a poem on ‘bravery and valour’ which was not his genre of poems. But Kaka presented a poem to hail the revolutionaries who fought for the freedom of India in 1857 – ‘Kraanti Ka Bigul’. The organiser of this program was Gopal Prasad Vyas. All present at this function appreciated Kaka’s poem, and thus Kaka continued further and became a prominent name among the writers and poets of India.

Kaka has many creations to his credit where the prominent among them are ‘Kaka Tarang’, ‘Kaka Ki Chaupaal’, ‘Jai Bolo Beimaan Ki’ and ‘Mera Jeevan’. Kaka was honoured with Padma Shri in 1985 by the government of India. Delhi based Hindi Academy has instituted a  ‘Kaka Hathrasi Award’ for ‘outstanding contributions in the field of Hindi literature’ every year.

Born on 18th September, 1906 Kaka left for his heavenly abode on the same date in 1995 at the age of eighty-nine years.

Let us now enjoy the today’s poem written by Kaka Hathrasi and presented by himself for this movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’.

आदरणीय अध्यक्ष महोदय
देवियों और देवताओ
मैं पहले एक वन्दना प्रस्तुत कर रहा हूँ
मैं बहुत पहले सरस्वती वन्दना का पाठ किया करता था
सरस्वती वन्दना का पाठ करते करते मेरी financial position बिगड़ती गई
तब मैंने लक्ष्मी वन्दना आरंभ की
और मेरे ऊपर नोटों की वर्षा होने लगी
तब से मैंने नियम बना लिया है
कवि सम्मेलन में सबसे पहले लक्ष्मी वन्दना प्रस्तुत करता हूँ

लक्ष्मी मैया वर दे
लक्ष्मी मैया वर दे
काका कवि को इसी वर्ष में
करोड़पति कर दे

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972-Kavi Sammelan -01#
——————————————

Greetings on Saraswati Pooja and Basant Panchami to all…!!!

Let the goddess of knowledge, art, speech, music, learning, wisdom bestow us with her blessings.

Let us welcome the ‘spring’ season and let ‘basant’ blossoms in our heart.

On this auspicious day we introduce a new movie on the blog and the movie is ‘Kavi Sammelan’. Whatever videos I have found related to this movie (mainly of poetry recitation) took me to my favourite planet – the planet of literature and poetry. In this special season up to ‘holi’ or ‘dhulendi’ let us enjoy the different colours of emotions.

Come with me and join me in this festival of celebration of ‘literature’ on the blog.

That also reminds me of various similar programs held especially on ‘Holi’ and ‘Diwali’ which I used to watch and enjoy a lot.

As mentioned above today’s song (rather a ‘poetry recitation’) is from the movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ from 1972.

Regulars on the blog are aware that we are adding the ‘missing movies of 1972’ on the blog. And we are adding them in alphabetical order. However, while coming to alphabet ‘K’ we jumped one movie as mentioned by me in my earlier post ‘Baanka Sipahiya Aaya Mori Daiyya’ wherein I mentioned that,

In the previous post we had a song from the movie ‘Kaamna’ i.e., movie starting with alphabet ‘K’. Today we continue moving alphabetically still but jumping one ‘missing’ movie (without a ‘hint’ or ‘explanation’, but only for good reasons ) and stopping at the movie ‘Kundan’.

The movie we skipped was this movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’. At that time I needed to look for more information and details about this movie. Sudhir ji, while editing my earlier posts on ‘missing films of 1972’ had mentioned that “The film ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was a presentation of poetry by selected iconic poets of our country, of that time”.

The footnote for this movie page in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that ‘Bharat ke shreshthhtam Kavi pehli baar ek saath rajat-pat par pesh kiye gaye thhe.’

And in the order of appearance of their poetry recitation we have poems of the following Poets in this movie.
(I am listing the names of these poets like we mentioned the star-cast in other song-posts. However, I am refraining from mentioning the poem titles till we find all the related materials with them 😊. So far, I have found very few poems and their links, while majority of them is still to be located (if available) 😊).

Poems of following ‘poets’ are included in this movie.

1) Rashtrakavi Shri Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’
2) Santosh Anand (mentioned as ‘Santoshanand’)
3) Kaka Hathrasi
4) Som Thakur
5) Bekal ‘Utsahi’
6) ‘Neeraj’
7) Snehlata ‘Sneh’
8) Radheshyam ‘Pragalbh’
9) Shail Chaturvedi
10) Govind Vyas
11) Maya Devi
12) Nirbhay Hathrasi
13) Balkavi Bairaagi
14) Omprakash ‘Aaditya’
15) Manik Verma
16) Kedar Sharma
17) Gopal Prasad Vyas

Addenda in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for this movie mentions that there were two more creations by Vimlesh and Paras Bhramar in this movie.

The first presentation from this movie which I have selected is a poem recitation by Maya Govind. Though this is not the first one in order of the appearance in the movie. However, the video accompanying this post will give readers an idea about the future posts that will be following from this movie.

As far a the background to this Kavi Goshthi, following lines are an edited excerpt from the information published with this video on YouTube.

A Kavi Sammelan programme was organized by Jagruti Samiti in 1968, where many great poets from across, including Shri Kaka Hashrasi, Shri Neeraj, Shri Hullad Muradabadi, Shri Bal Kavi Bairagi, Shri Som Thakur, Shri Indrajeet Singh Tulsi, and many others, were present, all on one stage.

The program was compered by Shri Ramrikh Manhar and chaired by National Poet Shri Ramdhari Singh Dinkar. This program was recorded by Director Kedar Sharma and 10 yrs later Rajshri Production released it as a movie named ‘Kavi Sammelan’ in the year 1978. This is the part 4 of of the movie where it only presents Poetess Smt. Maya Govind reciting her poem “Tum Ek bar Priye Aa Jao”.

Maya Govind was only 28 yrs young when she performed this.

As per Geet Kosh, this movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1972 (so with a couple of weeks this movie will complete its ‘fifty years’. This video has a ‘Censor Board Certificate’, but that is dated 1978 and ‘type’ of this film is mentioned as ‘documentary’. Also, the credits at the beginning of this clip indicate that this is the 4th part of this film (or documentary), which could mean that the entire program was released as a four part film, and it is likely that the censor certificate of the first part was obtained in 1972.

We also find the mention of this presentation in a biographical video of Maya Govind presented by Shri Shishir Krishna Sharma ji.

Before listening to today’s song, let us have a look on a brief about Maya Govind as given below.

Maya Govind is said to have challenged the male dominance in the lyrics writing in movies and had established a distinguished place for herself in lyrics writing in Hindi movies.

Maya Govind was born on 17th January’ 1940 in Lucknow. Her father (Harnath Vahal) was a cloth merchant in Lucknow. Maya Govind and her two younger sisters were the three siblings. When Maya Govind was still a child her father lost his eyesight. His wife – Maya Govind’s mother – was a housewife, and all his children were small kids. So, all his shops and slowly his house too was taken over by his relatives. That forced her mother to take shelter in a rented house.

When Maya Govind was only five years old, she lost her father which left the family in a bad economic condition. In this situation her maternal uncle helped them to survive and to get education to the children. Maya Govind was the eldest among the three sisters. She completed her B.A. and B. Ed.

Maya Govind got married while she was in her first year of B. Ed. However, her marriage didn’t last long, and she returned to her mother within three months of her marriage. She continued doing B. Ed and joined a four-year course in ‘Bhatkhande Sangeet Vidyalaya’. She also learned ‘Kathhak’ from Shambhu Maharaj. She did plays for Radio in Lucknow. Later she started teaching at Bal Vidya Mandir Lucknow. During this she kept acting in plays and joined the famous stage artist Kunwar Kalyan Singh.

She had been writing poetry since she was eleven years old. Once when Bharat Bhushan and his brother producer Ramesh Chandra (better known as R. Chandra) spotted her during their visit to her school and impressed by her poetry R. Chandra asked her to visit Bombay. That was in 1966.

R. Chandra offered her three movies to write lyrics for (these were ‘Mushaira’, ‘Megh Malhar’, and ‘Baap Bete’). She wrote eleven songs for ‘Mushaira’ and returned to Lucknow. Suddenly R. Chandra died in between, and only two songs were recorded then under the baton of Music Director Khayyam. (Later R. Chandra’s son Rakesh Chandra included these two songs in the movie ‘Muthhi Bhar Chawal’ in ‘1975’.)

In 1965-66 Govind Arora (alias Ram Govind)- a famous writer and stage personality – came to Lucknow from Samastipur, Bihar to look for artistes for his plays. Maya Govind was offered the lead role. During this association they become close friends and got married in 1967. Ram Govind too got settled in Lucknow. Both founded the ‘Darpan Naatya Sanstha’ in Lucknow.

In 1972 Maya Govind came to Bombay to participate in a ‘Kavi Sammelan’ where one among the audience was the famous producer director Ramanand Sagar. Impressed by her poetry he signed Maya Govind for lyrics writing for his movie ‘Jalte Badan’ which was released in 1973. In this movie she wrote all the lyrics for all the four songs in the movie. Around the same time, she came into contact with Guru Dutt’s brother Atmaram who was making the movie ‘Aarop’ (1974) then. He offered her lyrics writing for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by the legendary Bhupen Hazarika. The song “Nainon Mein Darpan Hai” got popular from this movie.  During this time famous producer Tarachand Badjatya recorded three poems of Maya Govind for a private album.

In 1988 Maya Govind set up her own production house – Bahar Productions which produced ‘Tohfa Mohabbat Ka’ which was not a commercial success and later she launched movie ‘Taandav’ which was shelved after shooting of 13 reels due to financial problems. Her recent movie as lyricist was ‘Baazar-E-Husn’ (2014) under Khayyam Saab.

We have not gone through the filmography of Maya Govind in detail here, as this would take a separate write-up and we leave that for the future. Readers can read more about Maya Govind in her detailed interview with Shishir Kumar Sharma ji posted here on Shishir ji’s blog ‘beete huye din’ here .

 

Let us now listen to today’s beautiful (song) poem. 😊

With today’s song the movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ makes its debut on the blog. 😊

I sincerely hope that all will enjoy today’s post. I would request knowledgeable readers to provide additional information and trivia about this movie.

Song-Tum ek baar priye aa jaao (Kavi Sammelan)(1972) Singer-Maya Govind, Lyrics-Maya Govind

Lyrics

tum ek baar priy aa jaao o
to aanchal bhar suhaag odhoon

aashaayen alakh jagaati hain
beemar kalpnaa ke dwaare
adhron ne band kiwaad kiye

vandan ke chhand bike saare ae
nanadi jaisi natkhat sandhya
bhar bhar sindoor taane maare
tum mera sambodhan var lo o o
main tootaa chandan tan jodoon oon
tum ek baar priye aa jaao o

to kaliyaan chitke daali lachke
maali vihanse bhanwre jhoome ae
bhanwaron ke pankh paraag pagey
maali kaliyaan tode choome
to
ek rasik aur ek vyaapaari
ek loote ek bechen ritu mein ae
sammaan sahit murjhaa jaati
main khilti agar kisi ban mein
to tum pawan bano mujhko chhoo do
main joothi pankhuriyaan todoon oon
tum ek baar priye aa jaao

tere mere iske uske
naate rishtey sab bantey huye ae
ye kuchh kehta wo kuchh kehta
bolen akshar sab ratey huye
jhoothe sapne kab tak dekhoon
doli se saajan satey huye ae
ghabraakar udnaa bhi chaahoon
to pankh hamaare kate huye
adhron par tum aakaash dharo
to ankhiyon ke vish-ghat kholoon oon
tum ek baar priy aa jaao

sindoor chadhaaun ya mitti
donon ke niyam ek se hain aen
sindoor chadhaaun ya mitti
donon ke niyam ek se hain
ghoonghat mein mukhdaa chhuptaa hai
chunar aur kafan ek se hain
ghoonghat mein mukhdaa chhuptaa hai
chunar aur kafan ek se hain
is doli aur us doli ke ae
chadhne ke shagun ek se hain aen
do baar aath pag saath chalen
aathhon ke chalan ek se hain
tum man madhuban ka path de do
tum man madhuban ka path de do
to main tan ka marghat chhodoon oon
tum ek baar priy aa jaao o
to aanchal bhar suhaag odhoon

तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ
तो आँचल भर सुहाग ओढ़ूँ
काजल आँजूँ
पायल बांधूँ
दृग में झाँकूँ
दर्पण तोड़ूँ
तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ

आशाएँ अलख जगाती हैं
बीमार कल्पना के द्वारे
आशाएँ अलख जगाती हैं
बीमार कल्पना के द्वारे
अधरों ने बन्द किवाड़ किए
नैना जीते बैना हारे
कोलाहल के बाज़ारों में
वन्दन के छंद बिके सारे
ननदी जैसी नटखट संध्या
भर भर सेंदूर ताने मारे
तुम मेरा सम्बोधन वर लो
मैं टूटा चन्दन तन जोड़ूँ
तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ

कलियाँ चिटकें डाली लचके
माली विहँसे भँवरे झूमें
भँवरों के पंख पराग पगे
माली कलियाँ तोड़ें चूमें
तो एक रसिक और एक व्यापारी
एक लूटे एक बेचे ऋतु में
सम्मान सहित मुरझा जाती
मैं खिलती अगर किसी बन में
तो तुम पवन बनो मुझको छू दो
मैं जूठी पंखुरियाँ तोड़ूँ
तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ

तेरे मेरे इसके उसके
नाते रिश्ते सब बटे हुये
ये कुछ कहता वो कुछ कहता
बोलें अक्षर सब रटे हुये
झूठे सपने कब तक देखूँ
डोली से साजन सटे हुये
घबरा कर उड़ना भी चाहूँ
तो पंख हमारे कटे हुये
अधरों पर तुम आकाश धरो
तो अखियों के विष घट फोड़ूँ
तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ

सिंदूर चढ़ाऊँ या मिट्टी
दोनों के नियम एक से हैं
सिंदूर चढ़ाऊँ या मिट्टी
दोनों के नियम एक से हैं
घूँघट में मुखड़ा छुपता है
चूनर और कफन एक से हैं
घूँघट में मुखड़ा छुपता है
चूनर और कफन एक से हैं
इस डोली और उस डोली के
चढ़ने के शगुन एक से हैं
दो बार आठ पग साथ चलें
आठों के चलन एक से हैं
तुम मन मधुबन का पथ दे दो
तुम मन मधुबन का पथ दे दो
तो मैं तन का मरघट छोड़ूँ
तुम एक बार प्रिए आ जाओ
तो आँचल भर सुहाग ओढ़ूँ

Song-Chale aao na sataao (Aarop)(1974) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Maya Govind, MD-Bhupen Hazarika

Lyrics

champa ke das phool
chameli ki ek kali
arre haaye moorakh ki saari rain
chatur ki ek ghadi

chale aao

chale aao

mori hiyara ki agni bujhaaye jaao re ae
hamra jiyarwa de de balma naagin ye samjho
sajna main seedhi sadhi naar hoon na naagin ye samjho
hamra jiyrwa dai de baalma naagin ye samjho

bholi sooratiya neechi najariya aaya ek anaadi
mauka pa mori bainya marodi nikla bada khilaadi
bholi sooratiya neechi najariya aaya ek anaadi
mauka pa mori bainya marodi nikla bada khilaadi
chitwan ne hathkadi laga di
roop ne mara dhakka
haay dekh ke mora jaadu tona ho gaya hakka bakka
chale aao
na sataao
chale aao

mori hiyara ki agni bujhaaye jaao re ae
hamra jiyarwa de de balma naagin ye samjho
sajna main seedhi sadhi nar hoon na nagin ye samjho
hamra jiyrwa dai de balma nagin ye samjho

sawa laakh ke honth hamaare
dedh laakh ke naina
choodi bhari kalaai mori teen laakh ki hai na
sawa laakh ke honth hamaare
dedh laakh ke naina
choodi bhari kalaai mori teen laakh ki hai na
chaar laakh ki chunar lahanga
paanch laakh ke bol
saat laakh ki mori kamariya
tan mora anmol
chale aao

chale aao na sataao
mori hiyara ki agni bujhaaye jaao re ae
hamra jiyarwa de de balma naagin ye samjho
sajna main seedhi sadhi naar hoon na naagin ye samjho
hamra jiyarwa de de baalma naagin ye samjho

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 46
——————————————————————————————

Today I present a song from the 1974 movie ‘Aarop’. (Yes! the year of this movie needs to be corrected as ‘1974’. It was passed by Censor Board on 16.01.1974).

“Aarop-1974” is one of the two movies which are falling under ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today on 23.09.2019. The other movie is ‘Fashion-1957’.

As many as six movies were represented on the blog with their songs ten years back on the blog viz on 23.09.2009. Their details as well as the present status of the movies that these songs were from are as under :

Jhinchak jhinchakAarop-197304 of 07 songs coveredBahaaron se poochho…laakh sambhaalaFashion-195706 of 08 songs coveredKuchh bhi na bolengeWaaris-1954All Songs covered in the blogMera naram karejwa dol gayaAarzoo-1950All Songs covered in the blogRaat hai taaron bhariPardes-1950All Songs covered in the blogNaina deewaane ek nahin maaneAfsar-1950All Songs covered in the blog

Song Movie title-Year Remarks

“Aarop-1974” was directed by Atmaram for ‘Gurudutt Films Combine, Bombay’. Atmaram (Guru Dutt’s brother) also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie.

It had Saira Banu, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Rehman, Bindu, Bharat Bhushan, Keshto Mukherji, Paintal, Gulshan Arora, Kundan, Savita, Manik, Murad, Krishnakant, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Maruti, Viju Khote, Pardesi, Bhagwan, Sabina, Chandu, Mohan Choti and Johny Walker.
Lily Chakravarti, Rajesh Behl, Raj Mehra makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

Y.G. Chavhan was the editor for this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Vrajendra Gaud. Govind Singh was the Chief Assistant Director and Ram Govind was the assistant in screenplay.

For me I was familiar with only one song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ . Later on, when I started collecting cassettes, I was looking for this song and then I got to know the name of the movie this song was from. But I think this song was not easily available then.

After many years I came to know about the music composer of this movie and it was Bhupen Hazarika. Earlier I thought that it was composed by the duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

This movie had as many as eight songs in it. Though HFGK mentioned it as having seven songs- including one two-part song.
But, during the preparation for this article I watched this movie which is available online and I think out of the three Manna Dey solo songs two may have been excluded from the movie, or either they have been edited from the version of the movie available online.
(I think correction is also required in HFGK movie page of this movie ‘Aarop-1974’ as the sequence of the songs is not as per their appearance in the movie).

Lyrics for all the songs in this movie were written by Maya Govind. As mentioned above music of this movie was composed by Bhupen Hazarika.
The titles of the movie mentioned that the Bhajans in this movie are based on the tunes of the devotional songs of Saint Kavi Shankar Dev from Assam.

One can experience that essence (or in my words ‘mere desh ki mitti ki khushboo’) in the song being presented today.

Asha Bhonsle (two solo songs), Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar (one duet song only and they most popular from this movie), Laxmi Shankar (one solo), Bhupen Hazarika and K.N. Sharma (one song together) and Manna Dey (three solo songs) gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Out of the eight songs from this movie four songs have already been posted on the blog. From the remaining songs I had option of two Manna Da songs (they are available combined in one link online), one song by Asha Bhonsle (which again is picturized on Bindu, this time a mujra song and ten years back already a cabaret song picturized on Bindu was posted on the same day), and one song sung by Bhupen Hazarika and K.N.Sharma.

When I saw that there is a song having Bhupen Hazarika’s voice and still to be posted I selected this for they presentation today. The video for this song was already available and I came to know that this is not a full video of the song, but partial video only, when I tried to locate the audio/video of other pending songs from this movie. I find that the full audio song was available.
I think today’s song must be the first song in Hindi movies which was sung by Bhupen Hazarika.

On screen it is lip synced by Bharat Bhushan while the ‘shlokas’ from Bhagwat Geeta are played in the background. Saira Banu is also present during this song which is picturized in a temple where Bharat Bhushan is the priest.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie earlier and I watched it during the preparation of this article. I must say that the movie is an interesting movie to watch and all the characters shown and the artists performing them seems perfectly fit into it.
(I am avoiding to mention about the story line of the movie to keep intact the interest of those who may want to watch it).
The overall presentation is a balanced one and the movie keeps us engaged till the end.

Its songs are also good, but I think only the song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ was popular and that song was frequently played at that time on radio. I must have heard it earlier and but watching it now and listening to it again and again was enjoying.

Dialogues of the movie are also very nice and go well with the storyline of the movie and the fight between ‘virtuous’ and the ‘evil’.
I am not aware how this movie fared at the box-office then.

Let us now enjoy today’s song, which grows on us if we listen to it a few times.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I simply love this app called YouTube on the internet, and when Rajaji reads this he will agree that YouTube is a lovable app. This app has a feature whereby after you finish seeing a video or song, it suggests similar songs which might match what you have just seen in genre etc. And it gives some very good suggestions.

A few days back I was seeing the video of a song from the 1980s’ movie “Utsav”. I was seeing the Suresh Wadkar song “saanjh dhaley gagan taley” as I was trying to zero in on a song for Suresh Wadkar’s birthday. At the end of that song this song began playing. I was floored by the rendition by the female singer on the stage. This was a song I had never heard before inspite of it being from a Prakash Mehra movie that I was aware of. The said song is from the Farha Naaz- Sanjay Dutt- Sumeet Saigal- Rohan Kapoor & Pran starrer “Imaandaar” (1987) which was directed by someone called Sushil Malik.

This movie had Anjaan, Maya Govind and Prakash Mehra as lyricist and Kalyanji Anandji as music composers. And I felt that this will be the perfect song to wish Suresh Ishwar Wadkar on his birthday. It is a semi-classical song with two female singers – Sadhana Sargam and Alka Yagnik singing with Suresh Wadkar. All the three singers have great voices, control over ragas and raginis. The song just sounded so divine and I was sure that all those who complain, that songs of the 80s lacked in melody and was all disco only, will definitely appreciate the song.
And then I heard the song again on the audio link available on YouTube and noted the lyrics and found it difficult to note down the ‘swaras’ that occur in the song as they are rendered at a faster ‘taal’ than the rest of the song.

The song was just growing on me and so I looked up for its video which is easily available. And Then The Anti-climax occurred. It made me feel I should not have seen the video. My first reaction was who in his sanest of senses would give this kind of choreography to this lovely song. That it was filmed almost on the lines of a disco that is a stage show was bad and to make things worse we have Sanjay Dutt on stage.

Here I shall make it very clear that I am not against Sanjay Dutt the actor, only that I was never his fan. In the 80s when he made his debut, almost parallel to Kumar Gaurav there was a clear divide among the young females as to who was a better actor/ looker. Kumar Gaurav won on the looks front and Sanjay Dutt had his followers who felt he was the better actor. And as things stand now after all these years Kumar Gaurav has vanished and Sanju baba (his pet name) is still around and going strong and he has just turned 60 last week on 29th July. So this song can serve as an example of how he used to be.

But let us keep prejudices aside and enjoy this Kalyanji Anandji creation for the melody that Suresh Wadkar, Sadhana Sargam and Alka Yagnik pour into our ears.

Here is wishing Suresh Wadkar on his 64th birthday. Suresh Wadkar -who made his Bollywood debut with Rajshri Pictures “Paheli” in 1977 under Ravinder Jain and followed it up with “seene mein jalan” in “Gaman” in 1978 under Jaidev. He has various awards from different state organisations but the Filmfare has eluded him inspite on record number of nominations.
So here is the song.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 82 # Remembering Navin Nischol#
—————————————————————————–

‘Ek Baar Kaho’ (1980) was directed by Lekh Tandon for ‘Rajshri Films, Bombay’. It had Navin Nischol, Shabana Azmi, Madan Puri, Rajendra Nath, Hari Shivdasani, Suresh Oberoi, Arvind Deshpande, Dilip Dhawan, Kiran Vairale, Anil Kapoor, Ravi Beri, Wasim Hasan, Madhumita, Sheela David, Savita Bajaj, Kamal Rai, Mala Jaggi, Shivraj, Rajan Kapoor, Nandlal Sharma, Taneja, Suhas Khandekar, Avtar Gil, Ratan Gaurang, Brijendra Mohan and Jagdeep.

This movie had six sound tracks including one two part song and one dialogue track. As many as four lyricist penned down lyrics for this movie – Mahendra Dehlvi, Dev Kohli, Kulwant Jani and Maya Govind. Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Aarti Mukherji, Bappi Lahiri, Jagjit Singh, Sulakshana Pandit and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.09.1980.

Today 19th March 2019 is the eighth Remembrance Day (11th April 1946 – 19th March 2011) of actor Navin Nischol. On this occasion remembering him here with a song from ‘Ek Baar Kaho’ sung by Yesudas. Lyrics for this song are by Maya Govind and as mentioned above it is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song though is a background song we can see Navin Nischol and others in picturisation of this song and we can enjoy his ‘elegance’ and ‘soft expressions’ in this song and for me (and I can say people like me) who like Navin Nischol’s performance this song is nice one to watch for him even though he is not lip-syncing the lyrics.

With today’s song the movie ‘Ek Baar Kaho’ make its debut on the blog.

Let us now enjoy the song …

चार दिन की ज़िंदगी है

बन के हमराही तेरा

छुप गई मूरत कहाँ
ये दिये विश्वास के
बुझ जाएँ ना एक दिन
दो गए तेरे मिलने से पहले
दो गए तेरे बिन
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# The Special Voices of the decade – 3 # Jaspal Singh #
———————————————–———————————–

Welcome all to the third article in this series.

So far, we have the following two articles posted earlier on this blog under this series, where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

‘Maa ne kahaa thhaa o betaa’
‘Haseen haseen waadiyon o’

When I had decided to start this series, my plan was to post one article per month under this series. However, later I thought it was better to combine it with the anniversaries of the Singers if it too falls in the same month of my writing the article.

The song and the ‘voice’ of today was supposed to be covered to mark the end of this series, however there was a good development in the first week of this month (March’2018) which delayed this post and finally it is here today.

The voice that I am presenting today is a ‘’very very special’ and ‘nostalgic’ voice for me.
I can feel the fragrance of the soil of this great land – our country, the purity of green lush fields, a big river flowing with its natural beauty, a small beautiful remote village in the rural part of our country – India, the diversity of our culture and the sweetness of the dialects spoken in our country. In all of its way this voice takes me back to ‘my roots and my soil’ if I think I am able to correctly mention the feelings otherwise the feelings just cannot be expressed in words.

Just listen to this song ‘dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan’ .

And for that matter take this another song ‘geet gaata chal o saathi gungunaata chal’ from this same movie ‘Geet Gaata Chal -1975’

And then this beautiful ‘bhajan’ ‘O o o mangal bhawan amangal haari ee ee’, again from the same movie – ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’, its so soothing and so divine that I can keep it listening again and again just going on.

I remember these songs were played on loudspeakers continuously in a marriage function in our neighbourhood in the colony we were staying then.

I was seven and half years then when the movie was released in 1975.

Since then this voice and these songs also were growing on me as I keep growing over the years.
And yes, I had not watched this movie till many years since it was released. I get to watch it, may be on a TV channel, in the later years of nineties I think. But its songs were there with me and they keep growing on me and with me in my journey of life.

I had watched ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se-1978’, that too on TV around mid or later eighties if I remember correctly. But the ‘dohawali’ from this movie is as fresh ever and soothing whenever I listened to it even now.

I had also not watched ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’ when it was released or even after that for many years, but I had not and will never escape its magical title song because of the voice singing it and the range of this voice and its sweetness and its melody.

(after coming into contact with this blog I got an opportunity to share the following song from this movie sung by Jaspal Singh; ‘gagan ye samjhe chaand sukhi hai’ )

Those were the days when we were watching any movie coming our way and we were getting a chance to watch. But so far as I remember I didn’t get to watched all the above-mentioned movies then where this singer had his songs which were very popular during those years. But I did watch them when I was a grown adult and I think that was the right time for me to watch them.

One such movie is the 1982 movie ‘Nadiyaa Ke Paar’ of which the songs were so popular then. Those couple of years were the ‘most study focussed’ years for us the students (though I was still very casual in my approach and could not understand its seriousness then, which I can realize now  )
Well, coming back to the songs from this movie, all the songs from this movie were very popular then and all of them are my favorites too.

‘Saanchi kahen tore aawan se hamre’
‘Kaun disha mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa’

These songs from this movie and one of the voice i.e. the male voice of these songs is our ‘special voice’ of the ‘decade of seventies’ for this article today …

The voice I am talking about is none other than Jaspal Singh.

***

Jaspal Singh was born on 23rd March 1943 in Amritsar, Punjab. We wish him a belated “Happy Birthday” on this blog today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead!!!

However, yours ‘junior’ sincerely had already wished him personally over phone a ‘very very happy birthday’ and good wishes to him.

How I came to know about his birthdate also happens just by chance.

It so happened that, during my stay at Nagpur I came across this song (of today) which when I listened to it I liked it so much and immediately fall in love with it. I did share it then to Atul ji but for a different occasion.
(However, now I feel that this is the perfect song for me to share with this article here when I am presenting this voice under this series).

At that time, I do also search for a detailed biographic information about him and after getting his contact number from sources on internet I do make him a call and express my gratitude to him for giving us the treasure of many ‘unforgettable songs’ and for his voice being part of our (people like me who were in pre-teens and teens then) growing years. I had also expressed my wish to meet him sometime if I get a chance of it, which he appreciated whole heartedly and also assured that he can share all information about him whatever is possible and if one wants to go through it.

This happened immediately after the November’16 Mumbai Gang out, so I enquired with our respected Shishir ji, if he had interviewed this personality for this blog, which he told me that it is in his future plans.

Well, from the information available on internet then (even now) it came to my notice that none of the sources (which I came across) had mentioned the birthdate of this personality so I was curious to know about it.

Recently when Atul ji ‘Yippeeee’d’ this movie ‘Geet Gaaata Chal -1975’ on the blog and posted couple of the songs sung by Jaspal Singh ji, I thought I should also write up and complete my post under this series.

After a gap of almost one year and half I thought I should call Jaspal Singh ji and try to get this information directly from him. He was very happy that somebody from a long distance (now from Kenya) had called him and was interested to know about him. He readily shared the information to me which also had an interesting ‘thing’ associated with it.

As mentioned above he was born on 23rd March 1943 at Amritsar Punjab. However, on all official records his date of birth had been recorded as 28th March 1943.

(for the information of our readers I would like to share once again that yours ‘junior’ sincerely have already wished him personally on phone on his birthday on 23rd March itself – ‘thanks, and so nice of you’ was what he replied to me)

Jaspal Singh came from Amritsar where his father was having the business of Hotel and their Hotel was once situated just opposite to the famous ‘Golden Temple in Amritsar’ (which was later demolished and was compensated by the government, as mentioned by him in his interview on RSTV-Guftagoo).

Among the five siblings they are four brothers and one sister. (I hope I am correct as per what I can learn from his interview on RSTV-Guftagoo).

Jaspal Singh completed his graduation from Amritsar and later on persuaded LLB from Ghaziabad. However, he was neither interested in business nor doing the ‘advocacy’. His only interest was to sing and become a ‘play back singer’ which his mother and sister supported well.

Jaspal Singh, since his childhood was fond of singing and he was singing in his school and college functions and was popular among his circles in Amritsar and was invited for singing in functions.
He too (like other upcoming singers) was a great fan of Rafi Saab whom he admires a lot and later on he got a chance to sing with Rafi Saab in films which was a great day for him.

His journey to movies and becoming a play back singer was full of hard work and struggle and he succeeded only because he had this talent, passion and instinct to become a play back singer for movies.

It so happened that his Sister got married and was settled in Mumbai (Bombay) in those years. This came like a blessing for young Jaspal Singh who thereafter keep visiting Bombay, initially during the ‘summer vacation’ and thereafter very often to fulfil his ‘dream’ of becoming a ‘playback singer’ for movies.

His Sister knowing about his passion and intentions persuaded her husband to try that Jaspal Singh gets an opportunity to sing in movies.
There continued efforts resulted in Usha Khanna ji giving him his first break for playback singing in the movie ‘Bandish-1968’ where his first recorded song was a solo song ‘dekho logo ye kaisa zamaana sambhalo sambhalo tang libaada’ which went un-noticed.
Usha Khanna ji give him another chance in 1969 to sung in the movie ‘Anjaan Hai Koi’, this time a duet with Mahendra Kapoor which due to its tune and words was somewhat noticed and reach a larger audience.

However, he was still far away from the ‘big’ and ‘hit’ …

In the meantime, given to the pressure by his father to join the family business in Amritsar he keeps visiting Amritsar, but since he was not interested in Business he returns back to Mumbai.
Later on, his father also gives up to his wish and allow him to stay in Mumbai and even bought a ‘flat’ for him in Mumbai which he is still staying in.

Jaspal Singh also started taking lessons from his guruji Mahendrajeet Singh ji who always encouraged him a lot and always supported him and insisted that he should not leave Mumbai and ‘singing’.
As his struggle for singing opportunities and a major break continued Jaspal Singh also too on practicing as lawyer ship with a senior lawyer in Mumbai and started attending the court proceedings.

‘Geet Gaata Chal’ …

Luckily, he got a chance to meet Ravindra Jain who also staying in the same locality and who was aware of his singing.

A ‘big break’ was already waiting for Jaspal Singh when Rajshri Productions were looking for a ‘new singer’ for their upcoming new movie starring Sachin.
Ravindra Jain was the music director of this movie and he thought to give Jaspal Singh a chance for singing.
And, after going through the ‘tests’ Jaspal Sing was given a chance to sing ‘dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan’, which also was his first recorded song for the movie.

The main title song of the movie came to him only after lot of consultations between the producer of the movie Rajkamal Barjatya and the music director Ravindra Jain who was initially reluctant to give him this song, which he thought was the main song of the movie and he thought a new singer would not be able to do justice with it and had it been gone a wrong way would have spoiled the movie and the music of this movie.
Finally, he was called to sing this ‘title song’ of the movie and after recording of that he was also offered the remaining songs of the movie to sing. (one song of the movie viz. Shyam abhimaani o Shyam abhimaani was already recorded earlier in Rafi Saab’s voice)

However, the title song ‘geet gaata chal o saathi gungunaata chal ’sung by Jaspal Singh went on to create a ‘magic’ for him and for the movie and for the ‘history of ‘Hindi film music’ and this song even today after so many years is as fresh as it was when the movie was released.

This was the first major break he got and which opened for him many avenues further, though he mainly sung for Ravindra Jain (I think so, till we arrive at the total statistics of songs sung by him.)

Thereafter he got to sing in many movies mainly for actor Sachin and many of his songs went on to become very popular and they are as fresh as they were then in the minds of the movie goers and HFM lovers.

***
Here it will be interesting to know if he got to sing in movies after ‘Bandish-1968’ and ‘Anjaan Hai Koi-1969’, because his next song was in 1975 for ‘Geet Gaata Chal’.

Well, after ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’ he left his ‘practice in lawyership’ and went on to singing in around one hundred fifty movies (to be authenticated).
However tragically or unfortunately for the history of ‘HFM’ the so-called ‘big banners’ didn’t offer him to sing in their productions.
Nevertheless, the songs that he got to sung so far cannot be forgotten and some of them will remain immortal in the memories of HFM lovers.

The song ‘jab jab tu mere saamne aaye’ from ‘Shyam Tere Kitne Naam-1977’ sung for Sachin is his personal favourite.

On this blog I got the opportunity to share few of his songs (few I mentioned above) and viz. ‘yaar dagaa de gaya dulhan ko le gaya’

His active years in singing last till 2009-2010 (as mentioned by him in his interview on RSTV).
By then already HFM had gone many changes and seen many new singers making entry into movies and singing, so naturally Jaspal Singh also got forgotten by Music Directors.

However, given the quantity of songs he sung, and his not so frequent appearing in movie songs credit some keep wondering that ‘where did he vanish?’😊.

On our blog we have so far only fifteen of ‘Jaspal Singh Songs’ posted, so all those who wondered where he was vanished can try to search for his songs also can try to get them posted here 😊 sharing them with their memories associated with his beautiful songs.

From his interview on RSTV (which is also the main source for this article) and as mentioned by Jaspal Singh himself he is living a happy and contented life with his family (wife, a daughter and a son) and continuing with his riyaaz and readings.
He had been doing stage shows as per demand and whenever he got opportunities for that. (the interview was done in 2014 i.e. only four years back).

That brings us to the today’s song being presented here on the blog and the movie it is from …

“Paayal Ki Jhankaar-1980” was directed by Satyen Bose for Ruchi Films, Bombay.

It had Komal Mahuwakar, Alankar, Surinder Kaur (new discovery), Arun Kumar, Shail Chaturvedi, C.S. Dubey, Virendra Gaud, Shrikant Moghe, Anand Joshi, Brijendra Mohan, Pardesi, Master Abhitabh, Deepak, Sudha Shivpuri, Ranjana Sachdev, Bandini, Namrata, Asha Sharma, Rajraani and Nisha.
Master Mayur and Master Sandeep make a guest appearance in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Rajkamal and its songs were written by Maya Govind.

This movie had total eleven songs in it and it was passed by Censor Board on 23.08.1980.
Aarti Mukherjee, Alka Yagnik, Anand Kumar C., Jaspal Singh, Purushottam Das Jalota, Sulakshana Pandit and Yesudas gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

Interestingly the song being presented today is the only song sung by Jaspal Singh in this movie and the only male solo too. The other male voices are appearing in duets song only.

Though I had not watched this movie its name was in my vague memories so I had been waiting for sharing of a song of this movie to introduce it on the blog. And it also serves the purpose of bringing ‘movies having same titles’ on the blog.

There was a movie with the same title “Paayal Ki Jhankaar” in 1968 which has already made an entry on the blog.

Today ‘Paayal Ki Jhankaar-1980’ makes a debut on the blog …

Let us now enjoy the today’s song in the unique and amazing voice of Jaspal Singh …

Song-Jin khoja tin paaiyaan gehre paani paithh (Paayal Ki Jhankaar)(1980) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Maya Govind, MD-Rajkamal

Lyrics

Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa aa
Gehre paani paithh
Jo baawraa dooban daraa aa
Rahaa kinaare baithh
O Shyaama aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa aa
Gehre paani paithh
Jo baawraa dooban daraa aa
Rahaa kinaare baithh
O Shyaama
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan

Man ki saanchi lagan hamesha
Manzil tak pahunchaati
Behte behte jaise nadiyaa
Saagar se mil jaati
O Shyaama
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa

Tulsi Meera aa Soor ke jaisa
Milaa na khojanhaaraa
Karke tapasya laaye Bhageerath
Ganga ki jal dhaaraa
O Shyaama
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan

Baiju ne Guru khoja
Swaami Hari Das ko paaya
Baalak Dhruv ne sach khoja
Ho Shyaama ho o o o o
O o o o
o o o
Baalak Dhruv ne sach khoja
Dhruv taara ban muskaaya
O Shyaama aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan aa aa
Jin khoja tin paayiyaan

जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
गहरे पानी पैठ
जो बौरा डूबन डरा आ आ
रहा किनारे बैठ
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
गहरे पानी पैठ
जो बौरा डूबन डरा आ आ
रहा किनारे बैठ
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

मन कि सच्ची लगन हमेशा
मंजिल तक पहुंचाती
बहते बहते जैसे नदिया
सागर से मिल जाती
ओ श्यामा
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ

तुलसी मीरा आ सुर के जैसा
मिला न खोजन हारा
करके तपस्या लाये भगीरथ
गंगा की जल धारा
ओ श्यामा
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

बैजू ने गुरु खोजा
स्वामी हरिदास को पाया
बालक ध्रुव ने सच खोजा
हो श्यामा हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
बालक ध्रुव ने सच खोजा
ध्रुव तारा बन मुस्काया
ओ श्यामा आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ आ आ आ
जिन खोजा तिन पाईयाँ

Less than a week ago, we were remembering the legend of legends amongst singers of the Hindi film industry, Mohammed Rafi, respectfully referred to by many as Rafisaab.

Today, we remember another legend of legends amongst singers – the one and only Kishore Kumar, fondly referred to by many as Kishoreda.
