Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kitnaa bhi hum

nahin gham jo dooba hai qismat ka taaraa
nahin gham jo dooba hai qismat ka taaraa

tu hai meri zindagi ka sahaaraa
nazar dhoondhti hai tera hi ishaara

aaa aaa aaa aaa

tu hai meri zindagi ka sahaaraa
nazar dhoondhti hai tera hi ishaaraa

Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14061

Today is Friday, 16 february 2018. It is just another day. But trust us to find something remarkable even out of seemingly routine matters. Today is a special day for the blog. It is the 3500th day for the blog.

It follows that the blog has seen 34 such occasions in the past as well. But we took notice of such kind of centuries for the first time only last year on 8 november 2017 when it was the 3400th day for the blog.

A quick mental calculation would show that there are 365 days in a year and so ten years have 3650 days (decimal system zindabaad ! 🙂 ). Add two additional days for two leap years. So the blog will turn one decade old or 3652 days old in another 152 days from now, on 19 july 2018 !

Another quick mental calculation would reveal that 3500 x 4= 14000. The blog has 14060 songs posts as of now. So it turns out that the blog is going on at a strike rate of just over four songs a day for 3500 days !

When a blog lasts this long and adds so many articles to it, then one is able to reel off quite a few statistics associated with it. I find that the blog by now has songs from as many as 3835 movies. As many as 1080 of these movies have already been YIPPEED ! So we no longer need to search for any additional songs for these 1080 movies because all of them have already been accounted for.

In the process of discussing songs, many artists have completed their own milestones in the blog. 35 music directors, 28 lyricists and 21 singers have more than one hundred songs each in the blog. Some of them in fact have their songs running into thousands in the blog.

There are a few artists who have almost all their songs covered in the blog. All available songs of K L Saigal, Suraiyya and Sajjad Hussain are showcased in the blog. Artists like Naushad, O P Nayyar, S D Burman, Madan Mohan, Talat Mehmood etc have less than 100 songs each left to be covered in the blog.

The blog is a great example of the power of online collaboration of likeminded individuals. All these individuals are making valuable contributions through their articles, lyrics, comments, suggestions etc. Some of these contributors have completed their own centuries in the blog.

The kind of skill sets that our contributors possess for the cause of HFM can be the envy of many professional set ups. We have contributors who are like research scholars and their original researches in the field of HFM have helped add to the information in the field of HFM.

The thing that pleases me most is the fact that we all feel like a group of people close to each other. Some of us have actually met each other and continue to meet each other from time to time. We have got to know each other quite closely and we often share in the joys and sorrow of each other.

I have a feeling that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg as far as our work in the field of HFM is concerned. The real extent of the iceberg has not yet been revealed. Lots of valuable background information and statistics pertaining to HFM have been collected during this nearly one decade long journey and that information has not yet appeared in the blog.

On the occasion of the blog touching 3500 days, here is a joie de vivre genre of song from “Shatranj” (1956). This song, the sixth out of eight songs from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Sheila Vaz and others. The lead pair of Ashok Kumar and Meena Kumari are also visible in the picturisatoon as spectators.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. He points out that one line in the audio version differs from the video version. Trust Prakashchandra to be able to differentiate between such fine details. 🙂

What happens when a tragedy queen acts opposite a comic genius ? The tragedy queen begins to act cheerful. Thus we have seen a cheerful Meena Kumari opposite Kishore Kumar in several movies of 1950s.

Even Kishore Kumar’s elder brother acting opposite Meena Kumari could have the same effect on her. “Farishta” (1958) was a Pancholi Production movie. It was directed by Ravindra Dave. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Mubarak, Anita Guha, Sohrab Modi, Mehmood, Nana Palsikar, Sheikh Murad, Mridula etc in it.
