Today, 24th December 2017 is the ninety-third (24 December 1924 – 31 July 1980) birth anniversary of the great singer – ‘divine voice’ – Mohammad Rafi.

Much has already been written about Rafi Saab on this blog and many other sources, and from my own experience I can say that he will be there as long as the Hindi Film Music is there. His songs will be cherished even by the coming generations if they get the opportunity to listen them or if they get the surroundings/atmosphere where songs sung by Rafi Saab are played. Such is the magic of his voice that can leave the listeners ‘spell bound’ and ‘mesmerized’.

I have experienced how listening to his songs my daughters will not switch over to the newer songs and asked me to either fast forward or change it with other.

There is nothing new that I can write in this post about Rafi Saab, except that we respect him, we admire him and we love his songs which will be there with us till we are alive.

24th December also happens to be the birth anniversary of one of my favorite actors of the golden era of Hindi movies – Mahipal (24 December 1919 – 15 May 2005) – whom we have been watching in most of the black and white era ‘fantasy’ and ‘mythological’ movies.  I liked him very much in all of those movies of him which I had watched so far. ‘Navrang-1959’ is off-course being the closest to my heart.
(Though some sources mention the date of birth of Mahipal as different, I think the date mentioned on our blog must be correct and same has been in the article on ‘Beete Huye Din’ by Shishir ji).

We cherish the memories and the contribution of these great artists to the Hindi Cinema and Indian Culture and they will always remain in our heart and in the history of Hindi Cinema forever.

On this occasion here is a song from the 1965 movie ‘Maharaja Vikram’ sung by Mohd Rafi. Listening to the song, I guess that this must be a ‘background song’ in the movie. It is written by BD Mishra and composed by SN Tripathi. The film was directed by S.N.Tripathi for ‘Rajroop Productions, Bombay’.

The star cast includes Mahipal, Anita Guha, BM Vyas, Vishwas Kunthe, Bela Bose, Sundar, Tuntun, Mishrilal, Radheshyam, Bhagwan Sinha, Sadhna Khote, Shri Bhagwan, Madhumati, Laxmichaya and others.

This movie had total ten songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV, all written by BD Mishra and composed by SN Tripathi. One song sung by Suman Kalyanpur “Maane Na Mora Bichhua Boley” from this movie has already been posted on the blog earlier in 2016.

Let us now listen to the today’s song …aadmi nirbal samay balwaan hai“.

 


Song – Aadmi Nirbal Samay Balwaan Hai (Maharaja Vikram) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics -BD Misra, MD – SN Tripathi

Lyrics

bal na vidya aur na saahas kaam aata
hoke rehta wo jo likh deta vihdataa

samay se haara swayam bhagwaan hai
aadmi nirbal samay balwaan hai
aadmi tinkaa samay toofaan hai

aadmi nirbal samay balwaan hai
aadmi tinkaa samay toofaan hai

paas jiskey raaj thha
sukh thha
bhawan thhe
naam thha aishwarya thha
dhhan thha ratan thhe
jo prajaa ka thha dulaara praan pyaara
swarg ko dharti pe thha jisne utaara
aaj uska ho rahaa apmaan hai
aadmi nirbal samay balwaan hai
aadmi tinkaa samay toofaan hai

dusro ki naav ka jo thha khivaiyya
besahaara hai usi ki aaj naiyya
jo kabhi deta rahaa sabko sahaara
jaa raha wo thokarein khaata bechaara
maangta sabse dayaa ka daan hai
aadmi nirbal samay balwaan hai
aadmi tinkaa samay toofaan hai

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
———————————————————

बल न विद्या और न साहस काम आता
होके रहता वो
जो लिख देता विधाता
समय से हारा स्वयं भगवान् हैं

आदमी निर्बल समय बलवान हैं
आदमी तिनका समय तूफ़ान हैं

आदमी निर्बल समय बलवान हैं
आदमी तिनका समय तूफ़ान हैं

पास जिसके राज था
सुख था
भवन थे
नाम था ऐश्वर्य था
धन था रतन थे
जो प्रजा का था दुलारा प्राण प्यारा
स्वर्ग को धरती पे था जिसने उतारा
आज उसका हो रहा
अपमान हैं
आदमी निर्बल समय बलवान हैं
आदमी तिनका समय तूफ़ान हैं

दूसरों कि नाव का जो था खिवैया
बेसहारे हैं उसीकी आज नैय्या
जो कभी देता रहा सबको सहारा
जा रहा वो ठोकरें खाता बेचारा
मांगता सबसे दया का दान हैं
आदमी निर्बल समय बलवान हैं
आदमी तिनका समय तूफ़ान हैं

रांचीवाले का ईरानी ढाबा

– “क्यों जी, आज का स्पेशल क्या है”

– “एकदम फ्रेश फ्राइड चटपटा मसालेदार ग्यारह नौ सौ”

– “ये ग्यारह नौ सौ क्या डिश है भाई”

– “गाना है सर !! ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौवाँ। बस आज ही सर्व होगा”

– “भाई ऐसा क्यों, आज ही क्यों सर्व होगा”

– “अरे साहब, कल हम नया ताज़ा ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ एक, और उस से भी आगे चलेंगे”

“लाऊं क्या, सर ?”

– “क्या”

– “गाना, ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ वां”

– “अच्छा, पेश करो, लेकिन ताज़ा होना चाहिए”

– “एकदम ताज़ा सर, एकदम नया, पहले इस ढाबे में कभी नहीं सर्व किया गया”

“अभी लाया”

🙂 🙂

Welcome all to our next century milestone, piling nine hundred on top of eleven thousand. And we are now just 100 short of the next thousandth milestone. And we hope to get there shortly now. This milestone has been quite slow to arrive. We have taken full forty days from the previous century, which occurred on 24th Jan.

‘ऐ’
“ऐ जान ए बहारां रूह ए चमन”

Truly vintage Rafi. A song that brings to mind the times and the era of gentle romancing, and the soft songs of love. In the voice of Rafi Sb, these songs carry a heartfelt emotion that conveys a genuine feeling of love. It is a wonder that this song has so far not made it to the blog already.

There is one name, and one person, in the immediate family of the child Mohammed Rafi, that probably gets mentioned in the margin lines of the story of his early years. However, this person was instrumental, and played a most significant role in recognizing the talent of this child, and endeavored to provide him opportunities for listening to and learning from some of the greatest masters of that time. The name is Hamid and he was the elder brother to Mohammed Rafi.

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Film ‘Benazir’ 1964 has eleven songs – too many by SDB standards and the 60’s fashion.  The theme of a muslim social may have something to do with it.  It could also be the reason that this time SDB paired with Shakeel Badayuni.  Now that I have checked, SDB worked with Shakeel Badayuni in ‘Kaise Kahoon’ (1964) also.  After ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), SD Burman seems to have worked with all major lyrics writers, from Majrooh, Hasrat, Kaifi Azmi, all the way up to Anand Bakshi in the 1970s, in films like ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ (1970).
