SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No. 6
———————————————
The mid 50s was a period when one could see the deep impact of the Nehruvian socialism on the film that were made. Great film makers like Mehboob Khan, B R Chopra and Raj Kapoor tried to support Nehru and Gandhian philosophies through their films.

Most of us are aware that a ghazal is a series of couplets (she’rs), each one being independent of others. In fact each she’r is a poem by itself.

It turns out that there was another song in the movie which was there in the movie and for which records were apparently not made, or if made then this entry was not available in HFGK.

This is the story of a 16 year old boy born in Peshawar in a conservative Pathan family for whom the association with film industry was a strict taboo.

I had given up hopes of discussing any songs today seeing that I found myself internet deprived today. I managed to get hold of a computer, which, though falling short of the usual standards of a computer that one is normally used to, has at least a working internet connection. Taking advantage of my good fortune, I have posted discussion on one song just now, and here is another, which I need to discuss before the gift horse decides to bolt away. 🙂
