wo chaand hai to aks bhi paani mein aayegaa
kirdaar khud ubhar ke kahaani mein aayegaa
(Iqbal Sajid)

Aks – reflection
Kirdaar – character

“jis ke paas koyi saboot nahin hota, kya wo kabhi beqasoor nahi ho sakta.”

This is the dialogue spoken by Meenakshi Sheshadri to Anil Kapoor, a lawyer, when he has refused to take her sister’s Beena’s case.  Meenakshi’s sister is a doctor and a patient dies in her private clinic, after she has administered a medicine to the patient. The medicine contains poison, and the bottle is already in the custody of the courts/police. There is no way anyone can prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine in that bottle. So all the lawyers are refusing the case and Meenakshi and the brother in law Parikshit Sahani, also a doctor, are running from pillar to post to find a lawyer who can defend Beena in the court.

The moment she says this dialogue, Anil Kapoor is transported to his childhood, when his mother Nutan had said the same words to the lawyer/ public prosecutor Amrish Puri, in defense of her husband Girish Karnad.  This whole story is in flash back – the story of Anil Kapoor, his sister and parents.

In the present, Anil Kapoor decides to defend Beena in the courts, and in true heroic style, drinks the medicine from the very bottle to prove that the patient did not die because of the medicine. Within minutes, the case is over, judgment delivered, Beena is ‘ba-izzat bari’.  Parikshit Sahani takes Anil Kapoor to the hospital immediately and treats him to save his life.  What happens to the actual culprit who put poison into the medicine bottle, I don’t know.

The court language in this type of films had glossary like ‘mulzim’ which is the one accused of a crime, ‘mujrim’ is the one whose crime is proved.  Crime is ‘jurm’ and ‘mere faazil dost’ means ‘my esteemed friend’ – this is how lawyers would refer to each other in front of a judge.

So with the case over, the doctors are grateful to Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi is in love with him. The doctors host a party to celebrate and Anil Kapoor on piano, again revives his child hood memory of the theme song at the party. This is Part-II of the song. After this party this dream sequence song, “Ae Mere Khwaabon Ke Shehzaade” comes up. This is a beach song, posted Peevicies’s mom and I have seen that song too just now. That song is one extravaganza on Madh island or Aksa beach and what is Meenakshi wearing in the last sequence? Looks as if she was trying to be a South Indian Cleopatra.

Now back to flashback:  Girish Karnad is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Nutan has tried in vain to get someone to fight her husband’s case against the formidable Amrish Puri. Their happy family is ruined, even as she manages to obtain a stay on the conviction of ‘sazaa-e-maut’, but reached late on the location. Girish Karnad has been hanged. After this I think, she loses her mind and is taken to mental Asylum.

Meanwhile the young children Anil Kapoor and the sister are left to fend for themselves in the big bad world. That is when Anil Kapoor is remembers the song that his mother and father used to sing, with his father on the piano, “Jeet Jaayenge Hum. . .”.  The song is highly motivational, though situational.  It is songs like these which make Laxmikant-Pyarelal such kings of the proverbial situational songs.  Theme song or not, the lyrics and composition is all more than apt for the mood and need of the script.  And to think that the script by Javed Akhtar originally had no scope for songs.

The events of childhood have a profound effect on the young Anil Kapoor and the song motivates him to keep fighting and to always hope and strive to win against all odds. And win he does, grows up to become a lawyer himself, struggles with the system and grows to achieve his goals step by step. All this while he is always conscious of how his mother’s struggles with the system to save his father from being punished from the crime which he has not committed. He has raised his younger sister Khushoo and who is now studying in a college. Anil Kapoor manages to trace his mother also and brings her home. But she is still not well and does not remember her children. Which is a cause for more pain, prompting Anil Kapoor to recall the childhood song again. This is when the Part-III of the song is played when Anil Kapoor and Meenakshi sing this song at home, hoping to revive Nutan’s memory and restore her mental health.

I thought, this was a movie made by GP Sippy, but turns out it was eventually made by Subhash Ghai.   Actually I found this song on YouTube a few days ago and saved the link to see it sometime. Today I got the time to see it and all the memory of the story, dialogue and songs etc. came rushing in the mind.

Jab itna kuchh likhne ke liye yaad aa gayaa to ek post to ban hi jaati hai. 🙂

The song is played multiple times throughout the film. This can’t be anyone other than Anand Bakshi’s doing, the lyrics I mean. Singers are Shabbir Kumar (in full Rafi mode) for Anil Kapoor, Nitin Mukesh for Girish Karnad and Lata Mangeshkar for Nutan, Meenakshi Sheshadri and Khushboo.

It shows that successful people have motivation for success, early in life and have to be ready for struggle. Come what may, we will not give up. Because life is always a struggle, even if one cannot foresee the difficulties to come. ‘Jung’ is not war here, but an avowal not to give up against adversities. In every way, it is struggle to succeed and defeat the bad. And this struggle starts with self to improve the self and its abilities and make them pure, truthful, honest and trustworthy. Because to do ‘jung’ with your lot is to do ‘jidd-o-jahad’ i.e. to struggle and strive.

I found a poem in the photos which I had taken in the hotel at Jaipur, during our vacation visit earlier this year.  I am searching the net for the name of the poet but even Rekhta.com is not having the works of this poet.  The title of the poem is ‘Kuchh Kehna Chaahta Hoon”.

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main bolna chaahta hoon

mere lafzon ke haathh
ab sar par aa chuke hain
jaise haarey huye sipaahi

wo itna jhooth pee chuke hain
sach keh nahin sakte

apaahij, beemar aur za’eefon ki tarah
un ko sirf taknaa aata hai

tum kuchh lafz
musta’aar de do
main kuchh kehnaa chaahta hoon.

Musta’aar – lend, loan for a while.
Apaahij – handicap
Za’eef – aged, frail with age

——————————————————————————————
My Railway related reminiscences- 3
——————————————————————————————

In my first article in the series, I discussed my first posting at Secunderabad. In my second articles, I went back into the past and discussed my probation days, including my stay at Vadodara.

In this third episode, I go back to the future ! Here I discuss my second posting.

My first posting was perhaps in the best place in the Railway zone of South Central Railway. I was posted in the capital city. I stayed near Secunderabad Railway station and I got a Railway quarter there. A capital city has so many attractions as well as opportunities. Those were the days when “computer” was a big buzz word. We had computer coaching institutes mushrooming all over India. A typical computer course taught DOS, wordstar, Lotus 123 and dbase3 . Does it ring any bells with some readers ? 🙂

A government employee is supposed to take permission if he/she wants to study in any course while in government service, with the undertaking that his study would not affect his performance in his/her job. I duly took this permission and began to attend one such course in evening.

My boss in my work place was an old fashioned conservative man. Same was the case with my bosses at the Headquarter. One standard advise that I would be given by them was – “concentrate on learning your job instead of learning about computers.” They did not share my “vision” that computers are a big productivity tools and they would play an important role in our lives in future.

My HQ bosses decided that the facilities at the capital city were harmful for me and so they decided to post me to a place where such facilities were non existent.

They identified a place that was poles apart when compared with Secunderabad. It was called Purna, in Marathwada region of Maharashtra. I was posted there.

This news was naturally a setback for me. But there was not much one could do about it. This place was a junction station and it had MG lines.I took a night train called Kacheguda Ajmer express (the most prestigious train in the section). The train started at night from Secunderabad and arrived Purna after midnight at around 4 AM or so.

In Secunderabad, I was a small fish in a big ocean as far as Railways set up was concerned, but I was going to be a big fish in a small pond like Purna. There I was being posted as the incharge of all Mechanical Engineering activities of Railways in and around Purna. My beat covered places up to Manmad (360 km to west), Khandwa (405 km to north), Adilabad (242 km to east) and Nizamabad (150 km to South East). All four places were in different directions and were located in three different states. When I think about it, the area under my jurisdiction was larger than the entire Railway system in some small countries. All this was MG section.

I arrived Purna Railway station at the early hours. Since I was going to be the boss of all I surveyed, people had arrived at the station to receive me. People unfamiliar to me always had difficulty identifying me. I got down from the station and stated looking for people who may have arrived to receive me. Likewise those who had arrived to receive me were lookng for someone who should look like a boss to them. Finally we managed to locate each other. They took me to Railway Officers Guest House, a small two room guest house. One room was booked for me and this room was going to be my place of stay till I got my regular accomodation.

Most people travel in style, carrying large number of suitcases which they have great difficulty fitting inside their train berth and they then secure their suitcases under lock and key. I on the other hand would travel with very modest looking luggage, typically a bag, and a jhola, and sometimes a suitcase. I would shove them under my train berth. No securing them under lock. In fact even my suitcase would not be locked if I could help it. I secured my suitcase only to avoid the embarrasment of an unlocked suitcase getting open and all its content falling out. And my luggage never got stolen despite lying all unsecured !

The modestness of my luggage was one of the reasons why unfamiliar people coming to receive me at the station would be unable to locate me at first glance. 🙂 Once my luggage was kept at the rest house, naturally it would remain all unlocked.

The small rest house had very small number of staff. Cleaning and dusting of the rooms was done by a lady. Her small child would accompany her. The door of the room would remain open all the time.

In the morning I went to my work place. This place was a steam loco shed, located towards south of the Purna Railway station. In its prime, this loco shed had over 60 MG steam locomotives. The number had come down a good deal.

The office was located on the first floor of a old fashioned British Style building. My chamber was quite large and spacious vis a vis the small chamber that I had in my previous place of posting. There were hundreds of staff in the office. People there still complained about there being less number of staff. 🙂

A few months later, my top boss (Chief Mechanical Engineer, based at Secunderabad ) paid a visit to Purna. During the course of his “inspection” of the place, he enquired- “how many clerks are there in the shed ?”.

The reply was “The work has reduced drastically, and so has the number of clerks. Now we have ONLY 40 clerks.”

“ONLY 40 clerks. My office at Secunderabad dealing with entire zone only has 39 clerks !”- the Chief Mechanical Engineer exclaimed !

Though I joined at Purna, my heart was still at Secunderabad and I would try to go back to Secunderabad at weekends and holidays, much to the chagrin of my immediate boss. I would leave for Secunderabad on friday and arrive back on Monday morning.

Once I went to Secunderabad on weekend and arrived back on monday morning. While at Secunderabad, I bought sweets, with the intention of consuming them at leisure in Purna. As usual, my luggage remained unlocked in my room.

When I came back to my room in the evening, I found that out of 20 pieces of sweet, only one piece remained in the bag where I had kept the sweet packet. The cleaning lady and her young son were looking very worried. I realised that the small kid had opened the box, and seeing the sweets, he kept eating the pieces and her indulgent mother could not prevent him in time. Now both of them were very worried.

I looked at the matter from the point of view of the kid and decided that it was alright. I behaved as if nothing happened. The mother and child waited till the morning to see my reaction. I showed no reaction and both of them were mightily relieved. It must have been an unexpected big lucky break for them. I could notice that they were silently thankful to me from the core of their hearts.

With time, I stopped going to Secunderabad at weekends. Instead, I would go to the nearly towns in the first half and be back by night. There was Parbhani (30 km to the north) and Nanded (30 km to the south) from Purna. These two district places had may be 4-5 movie halls each. I would visit one of these places during weekends, watch a movie and would come back to Purna by night.

All this journey was by train, of course. On one such occasion, I had gone to Parbhani. I watched some movie and then boarded the evening train coming towards Purna. The middle aged person seated opposite me in the first class coach was a PWD engineer in Maharashtra Government. He was coming back to his Nanded residence after attending some meeting at Aurangabad. I got introduced to him. He told me “kabhi koi kaam ho to bataana. Indian ke Home minister S B Chawhan ka main family friend hoon.” He also gave me his home address of Nanded.

I got down at Purna.

I was a “different” kind of Railway officer. I believed in things like honesty, fairplay etc. My immediate boss (based at Secunderabad), on the other hand was an archtypical Government official who believed in sucking up to the boss as the easy and only way of success. And he expected me to do the same. There were occassions when “failures” would take place and he would ask me to suspend someone. I would carry out my investigation into the failure and would found that the person required to be suspended was innocent. So I would refuse to suspend the innocent man.

This happened on quite a few occasions. He at his level would tell the division boss”(DRM)- “driver was responsible for late start of train. I have asked my Purna officer to suspend the driver.” I would investigate the matter and I would find that the driver was innocent.

The boss looked for opportunity to get his own back. One usual opportunity was to write adversely about my performance in my annual confidential report. I was an unusual kind of person who did not give a damn and I felt that spoiling my ACR was a non issue. He got his opportunity to actually hurt me. I wanted to take leave because my parents were calling me. It is not difficult for people to guess the probable reason. 😉 I foolishly informed my boss of the reason why I wanted leave. So he got a great opportunity to harass me. It is not possible to give you leave right now. But you will be given leave next month. He would tell me. I would believe him and ask for leave the next month. Then also he would say the same thing. This went on for three months and by the time it was clear to one and all that my boss was using this opportunity to harass me.

I felt very low when I was denied leave for the third time. I felt helpless. Then I remembered the Nanded based man. I went to Nanded and met him. I asked him to help. He was of course taken aback. He was no doubt a family friend of Indian home minister and a school mate of his son but what he had told me in the train may have been an exaggeration of his influence. In any case, meeting with him and talking with him served as some balm and gave me some mental relief.

A few weeks later, I received a telegram- “father serious, come home immediately.” I , alongwith my staff were naturally aghast, my supervisor (Loco Foreman) raised hell with the division headquarter and arranged for my leave on urgent basis. I was actually quite worried till I reached home and I was relieved to know that my father was alright. It was the usual time tested way of securing leave if the proper way of obtaining leave failed.

This episode taught me a valuable lesson that I tell everyone to follow. You should never tell others (especially your boss) about your “problems” and expect him to sympathise with you. Your vulnerabilities will be used against you. You should give the impression that you have no problems whatsoever. I have followed this lesson after this experience. I have rarely asked for any leave during the last 20 years of my service. And I tell everyone that I am happy wherever I am posted. And whatever I state happens to be the truth as well.

The movie that I had watched at Parbhani that evening (when I met that PWD Engineer) may have been either “Daamini” (1993) or “Dil Aashna Hai”(1992) or some other movie. I am not sure now. Let me assume that it was “Daamini” (1993).

This movie was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. It had Rishi Kapoor, Meenakshi Seshadri, Sunny Deol, Amrish Puri, Tinu Anand, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anjan Srivastava, Rohini Hattangadi, Aamir Khan, K K Raina, Paresh Rawal, Sulbha Arya, Vijayendra Ghatge, Viju Khote, Achyut Potdar, Asha Sharma etc in it.

The movie had five songs. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Daamini”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.

“Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) was produced by Prem Lalwani and directed by Rehman Naushad. The movie had Govinda, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Shakti Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Bharat Bhushan, Johny Lever, Nivin Nischol etc in it.

The movie had a theme that was more 1960s than 1990s and it came as no surprise that the movie had few takers at the box office.

The movie had eight songs in it. Here is the first song from “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by S P Balasubrahmaniam. Hasan Kamal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The picturisation shows Govinda lip sayncing this song while staying hidden from the views of Shakti Kapoor and Meenakshi Sheshadri.

With this song, “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Only yesterday I saw a rather old episode of the TALK SHOW – back then they used to call it interview (simple)- “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which Tabassum used to host. I am sure all movie/ music lovers would have seen at least one episode on Friday evenings (I think). I used to try and see it without fail. But the episode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFFwOfs1IWw) I saw yesterday on YouTube I don’t recollect having seen in 1983. Just as well since; when I saw it yesterday it was an eye opener. It featured Anand Bakshi the lyricist.

‘Hero’(1983) was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai for Mukta Arts Limited, Bombay. Introducing newcomer pairs in lead roles was the in thing those day. It had started with ‘Bobby’(1973), which was followed by ‘Love Story’(1980), ‘Rocky’(1981) and then ‘Betaab’(1983).

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.

Hullo to all at Atuldom

The rains always send me down memory lane. Whether it is the June to September cycle of the Indian monsoon or the unexpected rains that happen in the connection with the low pressures in the Bay Of Bengal sometime during October – November. Now going back to my school days, I remember that it is all geographical phenomena that brings rain in oct- Nov. but the June rains have more memories attached to them than the winter rains. Our schools used to reopen post summer vacations in June. And the rainy season; as we in Mumbai knew it; would promptly arrive in the second week of June with heavy downpours, water logging and forced closure of schools giving us additional holidays. (Yes; that was common even thirty years ago as it is today when all and sundry cry foul about the bad drainages.)

Raksha bandhan comes in the festive month of Shravan. This year it is on 29th August 2015. Wishing all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the eighth time we are celebrating it on our blog. Does that mean we have run out of Raksha Bandhan songs to be posted? Actually if we take a look at the list on the right side of our blog –the list which breaks up the blog category wise— we find 21 Rakhi songs have been posted beginning with the all-time universal favourite “Bhaiyya Mere Rakhi Ke Bandhan Ko Nibhana” from the 1959 “Chhoti Behan”. The last song in this category was in 2013 by Sudhirji “pardesi ho humse rakhiya bandha” from a 1944 movie.

In continuation to my post for ‘apne haathon ko pehchaan’ :
There is this bhajan/song which is more a philosophical song from 1989 movie ‘ Bade ghar ki Beti ‘.

Actually it is based on a Meera bhajan, but improvised by the lyricist Santosh Anand and composers Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Once heard never forgotten kind of song, with its simple words and simple philosophy of contentment and containment.
