hullo to atuldom

I am trying to wish two people on their birthday with this one post.

Yesterday, 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar Singh of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

He was born in Hyderabad in 1922 which means he would have been 95. He started his career with a theatre group before shifting to Prithvi Theatre. That is where he learnt to play the Tabla, and several other instruments like the Sitar, Accordion and Piano. Besides his work at Prithvi he also started working as assistant to Husnlal Bhagatram and nurtured ambitionof becoming an independent music director.He met a struggling Jaikishan Panchal, a harmonium player, outside the office of a Gujarati film director and instantly offered him a job at Prithvi without even consulting Prithviraj Kapoor. But Prithviraj honoured Shankar’s word and appointed Jaikishan as the Harmonium player of Prithvi Theatre.

It was here that they got to know Raj Kapoor and when Raj Kapoor debuted as director in 1948 with “Aag”. Ram Ganguly was the music director and Shankar and Jaikishan were the assistants. For RK’s “Barsaat”. Raj Kapoor took Shankar as the music director who insisted that on taking Jaikishan as partner and history was made. Their filmography contains a wide range of music that made Bollywood history. It has music of all genres. And they continued as a team till the untimely death of Jaikishan in 1971. But even after 1971 all the music composed by Shankar was credited to the duo. But today’s song is from a 1975 film so definitely it has to be a Shankar creation.

The second person who is being wished with this song is my childhood favourite. She is another of the persons whose appearance on the small screen makes me stop in my tracks/ chores even today. I was floored by her beauty from the first time I set my eyes on her in 1971/72. And am amazed at how she has managed to maintain herself even today as turns 69 today- cannot believe she is 69!!! Does not look it at all!!! Probably it is her constant riyaaz of dance- she is a classical dancer- that is the secret behind her looks.

She has been the darling of the audiences from her first Bollywood debut opposite Raj Kapoor in 1968. (she first faced the camera at 15 for Tamil film “Ithu Sathiyam” as a dancer and supporting actress). Now I know all the followers of this blog have understood that I am talking of my Basanti alias Hema Malini. And just so that this post doesn’t become very long I am not going to list all of my favourite Hema Malini films here. Neither am I going to list all her co-stars here. Nor am I giving a list of her songs which have been playing inside my head since morning. 😉

Let us get to the song straight away. It is from Sohanlal Kanwar’s “Sanyasi” (1975). The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Vithalbhai Patel.

A strange coincidence the two people whose birthday is being celebrated with this song -both had their Bollywood debut with Raj Kapoor.


Song-Baali umariya bhajan karoon kaise (Sanyaasi)(1975) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Vitthal Bhai Patel, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

This post celebrates the 1000th song of Majrooh Sultanpuri on our blog.

rok sakta hamen zindaan e balaa kya majrooh
hum to awaaz hain deewaaron se chhan jaate hain

Powerful lines, written while he was in prison – no, not under the British rule; that happened back in 1946-47. This was a second time he was imprisoned c1950-51, under the regime of a free India. A poet with leftist leanings, his progressive writings were considered a threat by the British regime (which is understandable), and also considered a threat by then government of Morarji Desai (in Bombay). A song titled ‘Aman Ka Jhanda’ was sung at a meeting of poor labor class workers in the Parel area. Being the author, and the on stage presenter of this song, drew the ire of the establishment, and arrest warrants were issued in his name. He was arrested after being underground for some time, and sentenced to one year imprisonment. Morarji Desai suggested that he may render an apology for his writings, and he would be a free man. In response, the young revolutionary poet wrote this couplet.

rok sakta hamen zindaan e balaa kya majrooh
hum to awaaz hain deewaaron se chhan jaate hain

No walls of a prison
No tyranny of a jailer
Has the power to bind me
I am the voice (of conscience)
That permeates through
The walls of confinement
[Note: zindaan = jailer]

Remembering Majrooh Sb on the 98th anniversary of his birth today (1st October).

When born in 1919, he was named Asraar ul Hasan Khan. His father, who worked in the Police department, wanted him to have the traditional education, and learn to be a doctor. The young Asraar studied at the traditional Masrasa, and took up Unaani medicine, to become a ‘hakeem’. These are efforts made by the worldly wise in the family, to get the young man settled in life. But the voice of the revolutionary poet turned to be more strong and it was his shaayari that ascended to claim his life to be its own. Influenced and encouraged by the stalwarts of his era, namely Faiz, Majaaz and Jigar Moradabaadi, he found himself to be much more at home in mushairas and gatherings of writers. He came to Bombay to participate in one such gathering of poets. AR Kardar was present at this mushaira. The impressions made led to a meeting between Kardar, Naushad and this young poet. The outcome was the songs of the film ‘Shahjehan’. The rest, as is often said, is history.

The innings lasted for five and a half decades, probably the longest inning by a songwriter in the Hindi film industry. The body of work consists of more than 2300 songs written for almost 350 films over a period of 55 years. Songs that have entertained generation after generation of movie buffs and radio listeners. The longevity and the creativity can be gauged from the popularity of his writings at the two ends of this long 55 year spectrum. At one end of this spectrum are gems like “Yun To Aapas Mein Bigadte Hain Khafaa Hotey Hain” (‘Andaaz’, 1949) and “Sun Sun Sun Sun Zaalima. . .” (‘Aar Paar’, 1954), and at the other end are the contemporary innovative hits like “Baahon Ke Darmiaan. . .” (‘Khamoshi – The Musical’, 1996) and “Ae, Kya Bolti Tu. . . Aati Kya Khandaala” (‘Ghulam’, 1998). And in between these two ends are crammed a couple of thousand popular hit songs across the decades, that cannot be justifiably dealt with in a single article.

Romanticism apart, the writings of Majrooh touch upon the variety of human sentiments, and have carried an attraction that has appealed to generations. His creativity and his touch of the current in-vogue sentimentalism made him a successful partner of four generations of music directors from Naushad and Ghulam Mohammed all the way to Jatin-Lalit and AR Rahman. That is a prowess and a success that probably no other songwriter in the industry can lay a claim to.

For today’s celebration, I have picked this Mukesh – Usha Mangeshkar duet from the 1966 film ‘Mere Lal’. The music is created by the duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal. Another significant reason to celebrate today’s anniversary is that we are on the 1,000th post of Majrooh Sb’s songs on our blog. Back in 1993, Majrooh Sb became the first songwriter in the film industry to be honored with the coveted Dada Saheb Phalke Award. And today, he becomes the first songwriter to breach the 1000th milestone on our blog.
[Note: Rajinder Krishan is very close, also in the 990s. The next closest is Anand Bakshi, still a little further behind at 875.]

Today’s song is a roadside tamasha song, as we see a roving entertainer with his trained monkey’s act, present a performance to the roadside public. And now we have a film song to go along with it. 🙂 The singing voices are of Mukesh and Usha Mangeshkar. The latter is singing for assistant of the lead performer.

In the video clip, we hear two antaraas. However, the longer more complete song is available as an audio clip only. Also, the Geet Kosh lists this song twice, and apparently, the second reprise of the song in the film is a solo sung by Usha Mangeshkar. This reprise has only one antaraa, which is a repeat of the first antaraa of the main part of this song. The lyrics noted are based on the longer audio version of the song.

I request the more knowledgeable readers to help identify this performer duo who enact this song on screen.

Note: Avinash ji informs us that the young assistant lip syncing the voice of Usha Mangeshkar, is Mahesh Kothare, who was later active in the Marathi film industry as an actor, producer and director.

zamaanaa bade shauq se sun raha tha
hameen so gaye daastaan kehte kehte
hameen so gaye

Today is the remembrance day of legendary singer Mukesh. (23 July 1922 to 27 August 1976).

“Each word from his lips was a pearl. No one could sing the way Mukesh did, with the right diction, inflexion and intonation. His vocal timbre was out of this world.”

These are the words of composer Salil Choudhary in praise of the voice of Mukesh.

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

Mukesh and his Composers – 14
——————————————–

As we celebrate seven decades of freedom, patriotic songs continue to eulogize the glories of our nation. These songs have always had a special place in the hearts of all Indians. During the good old days of DD, many such songs were played throughout the day on such occasions. One of the very common songs that was invariably played was the Mukesh number “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten” from the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). Coming from the baton of Usha Khanna in her second film as a composer, the song was sung with much gusto by Mukesh. The other famous song by Mukesh in this genre is obviously the title song from ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960).

It was a surprise for many – when the Mukesh Geet Kosh was published (in 1985), and the compilation, at that time, was able to list less than a thousand songs in all – filmi, non filmi, other languages all combined. It was a general impression carried amongst the fans that well, yes, Mukesh has not sung as many songs as Rafi Sb, but then, less than thousand?? And then, it became a new topic to write about and discuss – why is it so that the impression is that Mukesh has recorded a lot many more songs than are popularly known.

chaman mein sab ne hi gaaya

magar sab se alag tha rang
meri hi kahani ka

zamanaa sun raha hai jis ko
wo meri kahani hai

 

The voice of Mukesh continues to enthral the world of music. Today (22 July) is his birth anniversary and I present here a short song from the film ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). This film has already been Yippeee’d on the blog, but this particular rendition can as well be taken as an additional separate song.

Today (22 july 2017) is the birth anniversary of our beloved singer, Mukesh Chand Mathur, better known to one and all as Mukesh (22 july 1923-27 august 1976).

I don’t recall if I have written a tribute to him yet on this blog – I think I might have. But even so, there are no rules here saying I cannot write another one. 🙂  And since I have several fond memories of listening to Mukesh songs in my life, I am happy to use this occasion to remember him and pay my humble tribute to him.

Several years ago, I read a tale that made my blood boil. It was about a 96 year old lady, whose palatial house was snatched away forcibly from her by greedy land grabbers and she was forced to stay in the servant quarters of her own prime property. She was no ordinary lady either. she was the first female IAS officer of India.

When media got wind of this fact, the people who had usurped her property hurriedly brought her back to the mansion to “prove” to the media that she was very much the “owner” of her property.

Law abiding people earn some amount for their living and then try to live within them. Then there are some ambitious people who work hard and improve their earning and rise in economic status. They still live within their earning.
