Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 01
—————————————————-

Thanks to the help of Researchist Sadanandbhai and few more quotes from here and there, this is going to be quite different to my usual writing of short preface to the presentation of the song.

In my series ‘Genius of Jaidev’, I have presented about 60 filmy songs of Jaidevji, which were not covered on our musical Blog. I am unable to locate few more film songs of Jaidev ji, which are obscure, as I am a poor RESEARCHER. (In spite of the fact that I worked for 40 years in a RESEARCH Institute.)

Anyway, looking at the list of NFS covered on our blog, I realised that there is a huge collection of Jaidev ji’s non film songs in my khajana, waiting to be shared and admired.

Someone, at our ‘Sargam’ program had commented and I had noted it down. He commented that “If Gods up there have to choose a music director for their heavenly pleasure no one could beat Jaidev ji for the spot, with so much experience of creating heavenly tunes here on earth.”

Jaidev has given opportunities to many lesser known singers.Today I have selected Seema Anil Sehgal, a singer-composer from Jammu and Kashmir who is an eminent ghazal singer and an AIR artiste. She is also a recipient of the Jnanpith Award.

Jaishankar Prasad (30 January 1890 – 15 November 1937), one of the most famous figures in modern Hindi literature as well as Hindi theatre. In her glowing tribute to Jai Shankar Prasad, the poet-critic Mahadevi Verma says: “Whenever I remember our great poet Prasad, a particular image comes to my mind. A fir tree stands on the slope of the Himalaya, straight and tall as the proud mountain peaks themselves. Its lofty head braves the assaults of the snow, the rain, and the blazing heat of the sun. Violent storms shake its spreading branches, while a thin stream of water plays hide-and-seek amongst its root. Even under the heaviest snowfall, the fiercest heat, and the torrential rain, the fir tree holds its head high. Even in the midst of the worst thunderstorm and blizzards, it remains steady and unflinching.”

This compliment from a younger contemporary of Prasad summarizes the literary genius of one of the leading lights of “chhaayavaad” (छायावाद) movement in Hindi literature. It recognizes Prasad’s place amongst his peers as well as his relevance to the modern thought. As an author of a classic epic of the human psyche, his magnum opus ‘Kamayani’, Prasad had acquired early eminence. But later his multifaceted personality burgeoned in his contribution to diverse fields of literature in spite of countless storms of personal tragedies, and national social and political upheavals.

Brought up in the affluent family of a tobacco merchant, Prasad was a man of personal charm and of romantic disposition. By temperament a reformer and humanitarian, through his devotion to literature he became a lyric poet, a dramatist, a story writer, and essayist. Thus Prasad emerged as a literary genius. It would be no exaggeration if we rank him with such literary stalwarts as Kalidas, Tulsidas, Shakespeare, Dante, and Goethe in view of his vision and aesthetic consciousness.

With this geet, I also introduce this wonderful young singer and musician, Seema Sehgal. Her musical creations and renditions of Urdu poetry and ghazals of the masters, are treat to listen. I would urge you to know more about this wonderful singer – there is a blog dedicated to her at “Seema Sehgal Sings“.

This particular song, the very famous poem of Kavi Jaishankar Prasad, was sung by her under the baton of our Jaidev, in one of the episodes of ‘Aarohi’, a musical program consisting mostly of geets and ghazals, which used to be telecast by the Mumbai Kendra of Doordarshan.

Legendary thespian Padma Bhushan Dilip Kumar said in one of her program: “. . . a reason to celebrate that there are young and enthusiastic singers of your class and calibre. . . Your creations foster conditions in which music can breathe. . .”.

Dadasahib Phalke Award winner Padma Vibhushan Naushad Ali said: “May God grant me an opportunity wherein I could utilize your mellifluous voice in my songs. . .”.

Renowned Tabla Maestro Padma Bhushan Alla Rakha blessed her with the words: “O nightingale from Jammu and Kashmir! May the fragrance of your melodious and soulful voice spread to all corners of the world. . .”.

I welcome you to listen to this wonderful poetic rendition. This geet should be heard in the night on a good sound system to appreciate its depth and intensity.

Today is a special day for Atulites and each one of us on our Whatsapp Group knows that it is Blog’s 9th anniversary. The Blog’s anniversary is the mother of all other celebrations connected with it. Otherwise how would it be possible to celebrate century songs, artists’ centuries, artists’ birth anniversaries, the remembrance days, other special occasions etc without the existence of the Blog?

Nine years ago – July 19, 2008, the first song “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Lee” appeared on the Blog and Atul ji’s aspiration became a reality. As I understand from the blog posts, in this project, he got encouragement and support from another Hindi film music lover, Raja ji. In any start-up blogging, the initial support from the like-minded persons is very crucial for the success of the blog. As the Blog continued its run, many like-minded persons joined the musical bandwagon.

I joined the Blog sometime in the last week of July 2011 by fluke. I was searching for details of a song on the Google which directed me to the Blog. On the same day, I went through many songs and comments thereon. I felt that this Blog was the place where I could get all relevant and authentic information about the songs at one place. The facility of listening to the song simultaneously with lyrics interested me. I think, in the same month, lyrics in different colours for different singers were introduced for easy identification of singers.

Within a few months of joining the Blog, I got to know of the contributions made by the regulars to the Blog. Among them, Sudhir ji and Arun ji were making significant contributions in enhancing the quality and the reputation of the Blog. They continue to do so. Those days, Sudhir ji was covering in his write-ups mostly the songs of KL Saigal. I used to feel awesome of his detailed analysis of songs, especially of ghazals with English translations.
I was amazed by some of the rare information Arun ji, was churning out regularly on the old Hindi films, of artists and sometime also anecdotes from his kitty (read Note Book) which he had meticulously preserved since his younger days. His knowledge about the forgotten artists of yore was inspiration in developing my interest in such artists. In addition, he was also unwittingly assisting Atul ji, in what is called in media jargon, ‘content audit’ of the blog posts – especially of the old film songs.

After my retirement from the service in June 2009, my relatives and friends used to ask me as to how I am going to spend my time in the post-retirement period. I would reply them by saying that travelling and trekking were my hobbies and I would plan my travels and treks accordingly to keep myself busy. Now, when they ask the same question, I reply them by saying that I have been keeping myself busy in doing some research on old films, their songs and the artists. A bewildered look from them gives me the enough indications that it is beyond their comprehensions that such an activity can keep a person busy on a continuous basis. It was mainly because of my association with the Blog that I have kept myself as busy as I was during my employment.

As we celebrate the 9th anniversary of the Blog today, it is a matter of great satisfaction that there are more like-minded regulars on the Blog today than say 5 years back. I had said earlier on some other occasion and I will repeat that the bandwagons will not move in a desired speed with safety unless it is hauled by a powerful and well maintained locomotive. And that locomotive for the Blog is none other than Atul ji.

Whenever I go through the mind blowing statistical data, most of which are manually updated, I feel that the kind of the work load which Atul ji has been handling on a day-to-day basis for a musical blog has no parallel. While the songs get added on the Blog on arithmetical basis, the work relating to the statistical updating increases in geometrical proportion. As more and more songs get added to the Blog, I am afraid, Atul ji may have to devote more time to keep the Blog up to date than the time required for posting the songs. Hopefully, some alternative system would be developed to automatically update the data with all possible combinations once the song is posted on the Blog.

Congratulations Atul ji and his bandwagons on the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the Blog. I wish you many wonderful years to come for achieving more milestones for the Blog.

On the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the Blog, I have chosen a romantic non-film song ‘Hum Jawaan Tum Jawaan’ (1940s) sung by ‘Bombay Saigal’, Surendra on the words of Pandit Indra. The name of the music director is not known. The orchestration of the song gives me an impression that the music arranger associated with the composition of this song could be one from Goa.

When I first heard this song a year ago, I remembered the song “Hum Aur Tum Aur Ye Khushi” from ‘Alibaba’ (1940). There is some similarity in Surendra’s style of singing in both the songs which have western shades of music.
I was not aware that Surendra had sung many non-filmy songs in his early filmy career. As far as know, none of his non-fimly songs were available on YT until last year when I uploaded his 4 NFSs on YT out of around 20 available on Prof. Surjit Singh’s website.

The music composition for the song under discussion is the reminiscence of the influence of soft classical music of Western countries on Indian music scenes in the 1940s. Pankaj Mullick has sung a song “Praan Chaahe Nain Na Chaahe“(1940) based on Rabindranath Tagaore’s Bangla composition influenced by waltz music of the west. Even, Naushad, a bhakt of purity in Hindi film music, could not avoid waltz’s influence in “Ta Ra Ri Aa Ra Ri” in ‘Daastaan’ (1950).

With the song under discussion, Surendra makes a debut on the Non-Film Song’s segment of the Blog.


Song – Hum Jawaan Tum Jawaan, Husn Ishq Bhi Jawaan (Surendra NFS) (1940s) Singer – Surendra, Lyrics – Pt Indra, MD – [Unattributed]

Lyrics

गिरना संभलना उछलना
गिरना संभलना उछलना
हम जवां तुम जवां
हुस्न ओ इश्क़ भी जवां
होश कहता हम नादान
हम जवां तुम जवां

इक हल्की सी टीस
इक मीठी कसक
इक हल्की सी टीस
इक मीठी कसक
अपने जीने के ये सामान

इक तिरछी नज़र
इक नीची नज़र

Welcome to all readers to the 126th century on the blog. Yes, we now have 12,600 songs on board with this post.

It’s now customary to have a special post or a song on such occasions. The last one saw a bundle of century celebrations in a single post. This time however it will be different in the sense that the highlight will be on the song itself and its historic importance rather than other aspects.

Fareed Tonki’s “Raste Alag-Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai” is my all-time favourite lyrical message of religious tolerance, harmony and mutual respect. It drives home the poignant truism for the faithful that God, by whichever name, is after all One.

Talking about Independence day from the comforts of our home six decades after we received it is one thing. Even daring to talk about independence when the country was under British Rule was considered treason and such daring people were severely dealt with by the British at that time .
