Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Kuchh bhi kaam na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Kuchh bhi kaam na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa
Ye panchhi ud jaayegaa
Ye panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Ae ae
Raam bolo
Ke bhaiyya raam bolo
O bolo Raam bolo
Ke bhaiyya raam bolo

Takht taaj ye raaj paat
Kuchh bhi to jaata saath nahin
Kuchh bhi to jaata saath nahin
Rok sake udtey panchhi ko
Ye to kisi ke haath nahin
Bhai ye bhi to kisi ke haath nahin
Laakh lagaa le pehre phir bhi
Laakh lagaa le pehre phir bhi
Zor nahin chal paayega
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Ae ae ae
Raam bolo
Ke bhaiyya raam bolo
O bolo Raam bolo

Kya kya soche sochne waala
Par kya kuchh ho jaata hai
Are par kya kuchh ho jaata hai
Jaane waala haath na aata
Aisa kahin kho jaata hai
Are aisa kahin kho jaata hai
Ek baar jo taara tootaa aa
Ek baar jo taara tootaa
Phir wo nazar na aayegaa
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande
Ae ae ae ae
Raam bolo
Ke bhaiyya raam bolo
O bolo Raam bolo
Ke bhaiyya raam bolo

Na teri na meri duniya
Na gore na kaale ki
Bhai na gore na kaale ki
Yahaan chali
Aur sadaa chalegi
Marzi upar waale ki
Ab marzi upar waale ki
Bura bhala jaisa bhi karega
Bura bhala jaisa bhi karega
Waisa hi phal paayega
Tod ke tan ka pinjraa ek din
Man panchhi ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa
Ud jaayegaa
Ye panchhi ud jaayegaa

Kaahe paap kamaaye re bande

Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (05)
———————————–————–
Among the first few songs, I had selected for posting in this series, is this group song, with folksy tune. The film is Chaalbaaz(1958), the music is composed by Chitragupt and lyricist is Prem Dhawan. The title of the film evokes memories of Late Sridevi and her double role and the comic act in the film of same title in the year 1989.

The song is a brief one for a group song and the lyrics are very colourful, and not just because of the color-coding. Reminds me of a famous song, a truet of Lata-Rafi-Mukesh, with choruses and Rafi Sahab’s alaaps Ramaiyya vastavaiyya ramaiyya vastavaiyya. This is called a famous song, and we know all about this one.

Present song is not so famous one, but for all I know it might have been a hit and popular one in 1958. Singers are Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar. I found it last year on youtube and saved it for this series, as it sounded folksy and peppy, with the clap sounds enhancing the enjoyment. Apart from ‘Qawwali’ the ‘tappa’ genre and other folk forms use the clap as a rhythmic addition in the song, which must be enjoyable for those not actually singing or playing music instrument, as they can also participate. Hindi film songs are a dime a dozen for using ‘claps’ in songs.

A few such songs (non-Qawwali) which come to mind :
Laara lappa laara lappa laai rakhdaa
Na munh chhupaa ke jiyo
Iss duniya mein jeena hai to
Ye chaand ra roshan chehraa
Purvaa suhaani aayi re

Also there are many ‘garba’ songs which had women dancing with accompanying hand claps.

These 4 songs out of 7 are posted in the blog:

Song Date posted in the blog

Ho chat mangni to pat shaadi 7 May 2017

Koi dil ko lage apna apna 6 April 2020

I have found a pdf file containing list of all hindi film songs by Geeta Dutt. But I dont know a way of sorting data, if it is possible in pdf file. I will try to get it converted in excel, that will make it easy to sort data. For example, we can know how many songs Geeta Dutt sang for Chitragupt in her career.
Atulji is doing a great job of collating information of all Lata mangeshkar’s songs year wise viz-a-viz songs posted in the blog. I can see that a similar collation of data is possible with a list of all songs of Geeta Dutt, with the help of this pdf file.

Okay, I found a way. I searched and found 94 times Chitragupt’s name in the pdf list of Geeta Dutt’s songs.
So here goes the stats:

Sr. no. Name of singer/s Total songs with Chitragupt Songs posted in the blog
1 Geeta Dutt 94
2 Geeta Dutt-Rafi 28*
3 Geeta-Rafi-Usha Mangeshkar 2 0

*Includes 4 truets, Two with Usha Mangeshkar and two with Balbeer.

This is the other song of the same team with Bharat Vyas as the lyricist:

Sukhi Nahin Wo Jo..Bhaiya Kaam Karo Mat Aaraam
Balyogi Upmanyu(1958)
Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Usha Mangeshkar

Chitragupta 1057 488
Prem Dhawan 936 448
Geeta Dutt 1418 908

Done with the stats, so let us move to the song, of which only audio is available.

Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (04)
———————————–————–

Here is a duet again by Geeta Dutt and Rafi Sahab as song no. 04 of the series. I shall try not to make this series of Raft-Geeta duets songs with every other song by them. No worries there I have a few interesting combination duets and truets lined up for this series and I can be forgiven if it is interspersed with a few of those gems by this jodi.  The more popular ones by the likes of OPN and SDB are already in the blog, among the remaining are by music directors who are lesser known.

The songs in the genre ‘chhed chhaad’ theme and light romanticism by Rafi-Geeta Dutt are well known.  The present song is on the same theme, but a not heard before song.  Vividh Bharati Mumbai was never playing it in the 80’s that much I can say for sure.  The days of listening to songs on Vividh Bharati are a memory, which I was reminded of today.  I visited a deserted a fruit/vegetable market in our area in the middle of the afternoon, when returning from an errand.  A few sleepy vendors were there with their wares open for sale.  A few of them were huddled around on one of the carts, having lunch or just doing gup-shup.  Interesting thing with the scene was the radio playing and an old song well remembered from the radio days was playing.  It was a duet of Mukesh and the words were philosophical and romantic, I recognized the song with the stanza and lyrics were coming to mind as sure as the clockwork.  I came home and meant to look up the song, as it was not heard for a long time.  It was somewhat like “Bol Meri Taqdeer Mein Kya Hai” from ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962), but some other song.  Now it has slipped from the mind and I am hoping to hear it again somewhere and revisiting the melody.

This line in the first stanza “le le tu sitaaron se gawaahi” is as if it is somewhere else or in some other song I have heard, especially the word ‘gawaahi’ and the way Rafi Sahab is intoning it sounds as if I have heard it somewhere before also.  ‘gawaahi’ is not a very common word in film songs.  There is a song in ‘Daamini’ which goes “Gawaah Hain Chaand Taare Gawaah Hain”.    Also, the composition and music sound very much like OPN style.  And hearing some sounds in the background music, I think it can even be a ‘tonga song’.

Only one song from the film ‘Khiladi’ (1961) is posted in the blog – “Ho Gori Kaabur Aur Bukhaara“. Music composer is Sardul Kwatra and lyricist is Prem Dhawan as per the info in the excel sheet of Rafi songs.  The excel sheet shows only the present song from this film and the song already posted in the blog, a Rafi-Shamshad duet is missing in the list.  Myswar.com is not showing the film at all.  So, I had to refer to the excel sheet for lyricist’s name.  Listening to both the songs now, it is clear that both songs are filmed on different characters in the film.  Not just by the change of female singer, but also by the sound of Rafi Sahab’s voice.  Excel sheet made up with the help of geetkosh is listing only one Rafi song in this film, and now the blog has two such duets.  So, it is possible that there are more songs in the film, which were not recorded in the geetkosh even.  Only someone with the 60’s decade HFGK can ascertain this.  If this goes on like this, given a few more accidental discoveries, final list of Rafi songs is going to be around 5000, kheench khaanch kar :).  There is a very good chance that this blog will be the place where the record is most accurate in terms of number of songs sung by Rafi Sahab, and others artists also.

Rafi sahab is a little subdued here, in the sense, that he is not making many ‘harkaten’ or ‘murkiyaan’ etc like Geeta Dutt is doing.   Or rather trying his best to sound restrained, to suit the character in the film, maybe.  But it is a very melodious and hummable song and sounds too good.

I can’t get the sound of ‘gawaahi’ out of my head since I heard this song again and again while writing the post just now.  This is how much the obscure films and their songs are made memorable by the commitment of singers like Geeta Dutt and Rafi Sahab, who always gave 110 % to each and every song.

Song – Hato Hato Jaao Ji Jaao, Jhoothi Baaten e Na Banaao (Khiladi) (1961) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Sardool Kwatra

Lyrics 

hato hato
jaao ji jaao
o jhooti baatien en
e na banaao
o hato hato
jaao ji jaao
jhooti baatien
e na banaao

hua hai qusoor
kaisa hum se huzoor
hua hai qusoor
kaisa hum se huzoor
itna to zara batlaao

haay haay
hato hato
kyun ji
jaao ji jaao
aisa
o jhooti baatien en
e na banaao

tthandi tthandi aahen
saari raat bhari hain
le le tu sitaaron se gawaahi
hum bhi to tere liye
rahe hain tadapte
hum ko bhi neend na aayi
arey karo na guroor
yoon na raho door door
karo na guroor
yoon na raho door door
aur na dil ko jalaao
haay haay
hato hato
jaao ji jaao
ho jhooti baatien en
e na banaao

khil khil jaati hain
nazar mein bahaaren
milte hi tujh se nigaahen
jab jab bhi
mera dil hai dhadaktaa
sunti hoon teri hi sadaayen
aankhon ka ho noor
mere dil ka suroor
aankhon ka ho noor
mere dil ka suroor
ab to na aankh churaao
aay haay
hato hato
jaao ji jaao
o jhooti baatien en
e na banaao

It can be seen from the table of 1968 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 84 songs in movies released in 1968. As many as 83 of these songs are already covered in the blog ! Out of 33 movies of 1968 here Lata Mangeshkar sang, all songs of 32 movies are already covered.

There is only one movie of 1968 containing a Lata Mangeshkar song thatis not yet covered in the blog.

This movie is “Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani”(1968). This movie was directed by Phani Majumdar fr Rachna Films, Bmbay. This “social” movie had Shekhar, Bina Rai, Mumtaz, Sudhir, Bela Bose, David, Brahm Bhardaj, Madhumati, Keshto Mukherjee, Keshav Rana, Baby Farida etc in it.

This movie was originally named “Pyaas”. Its records were issued under this name. So one should not be confused if this song is mentioned as belonging to “Pyaas” by some people.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

The movie had one Lata solo in it which is not covered so far.

I had come across this song some time back. The song was wonderful to listen to and I had earmarked it for some special occasion. Now that I have to discuss a Lata Mangeshkar sng from 1968, this is the ONLY Lata Mangeshkar song available for me to discuss !

This song is penned by Qamar Jalalabadi. N Datta is the music director.

The song is picturised on Bela Bose as a roadside tamasha song. Bela Bose is dancing joyously hile the lyrics of the song are meant to express the feelings of separation that Bina Rai, playing a dukhiyaari naari and listening to the song from the cofines of her home.

Some people, including I are immediately reminded of the “Zanjeer” (197) roadside tamasha song Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye . That song had a female dancer dancing joyously hile lip syncing the feelings of the lead pair watching from their residence.

Both these songs had another thig in common, viz a male dholak player ho is better known in other capacity. The “Zanjeer” dholakiya was played by lyricist Gulshan Bawra. Here the dholak player is Prem Dhawan, better known as a lyricist cum music director.

In my view, that I had expressed during the earlier days of this blog, 1968 was a year that gave us a large mumber of immortal songs and so I describe this year 1968 not as a golden year but as a Platimun year for HFM. This year had quality songs even though quantity was less-only 458 songs which was the loest number of songs composed for movies of a calender year during the entire Golden era of HFM (spanning from 1949 till 1980.

ith this song, each and every Lata Mangeshkar song sung by her for movies of 1968 have been covered in the blog. So Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1968 get YIPPEED in the blog, so to say. It is a matter of time when all 458 songs of 1968 too get covered in the blog. Right no we are at 316 songs for the year with just over 150 songs to go for 1968.

“Mummy Daddy”(1963) was directed by Narendra Dave for Golden Movies, Bombay. This “social” movie had Ameeta, Sudesh Kumar, Lalita Paar, Tiwari, Maruti, Manorama, Niranjan Sharma, Jagdeesh Kanal, Rajendra Singh, Jamal, Satish, Shamlal, Rajnath, R P Sharma, Nadir, Mansaram, Amrit, Baby Chaand, Ravikant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Narbada Shankar, Rata Gaurang, Madhumati, Meera Parel, Rajni, Burhan, Bihari, R P Kapoor, Hari Sharma, Chanda etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Mummy Daddy”(1963) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata. Prem Dhaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of Sudesh Kumar and Ameeta. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to thro light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aisa nahin hoon aji main main aisa nahin hoon(Mummy Daddy)(1963) Singers-Mukesh, Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
tujhe keh doon main apna phir haath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
teri hoke main sajna jo saath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

pyaar mera kaise duniya mitaayegi
yaad teri dil se mere jaane na paayegi
pyaar mera kaise duniya mitaayegi
yaad teri dil se mere jaane na paayegi
tujhse karoon waada
tujhse karoon waada
phir aap usey tod doon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon

dekhiye zamaana humko sataayega
aap mere saath hain to kya wo jalaayega
dekhiye zamaana humko sataayega
aap mere saath hain to kya wo jalaayega
darr ke zamaane se
darr ke zamaane se
jo pyaar tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

aap agar bolen haazir ye jaan hai
pyaar mein jo aisa kahe wo to naadaan hai
aap agar bolen haazir ye jaan hai
pyaar mein jo aisa kahe wo to naadaan hai
tod ke ye naata
tod ke ye naata
jo aur se main jod doon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
aisa nahin hoon aji main aisa nahin hoon
teri hoke main sajna jo saath tera chhod doon
aisi nahin hoon aji main aisi nahin hoon

Total upto 1962 647 movies 2106 2498 1768 556 127 45

It can be seen from the table of 1962 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 129 songs in movies released in 1962. As many as 118 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 40 movies of 1962 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 31 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 11 Lata songs belonging to 9 movies of 1962 that remain as yet undiscussed in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Baghdad Ki Raaten”(1962). This fantasy movie was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Manoj Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shakila, Mahipal, Neeru, Isharlal, Ratnmala, Nagpal, Keshri,, R S Dubey, Leela Mishra, Vimal, Leela Gandhi, Mastan (tiger), Bhagan, Abu Hasan etc in it.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung three solo songs in it. One of these songs has been covered in the past.

Here is another Lata solo from “Baghdad Ki Raaten”(1962). Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dilip Dholakiya.

This is a rare song. Listening to this song, the first thought that crossed my mind was that this song is a hidden gem that deserved to be better known. It is sad that the song has ended up as an obscure rare song.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

In this year, Lata Mangeshkar achieved a major feat that went unnoticed at that time. She completed 1000 songs as a playback singer in Hindi films. She was the first playback singer to achieve this distinction in HFM.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1954 :

During the year 1954, she worked for the first time with nine music directors- Arun Kumar Mukherjee, Aziz Hindi, B S Kalla, Ninu Majumdar, S V Venkatraman, Sardar Malik, Sardul Kwatra, Shailesh and Vasant -Ramchandra. As for lyricists, she worked for the first time with Akhtar Yusuf, Daagh, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, Kaif Bhopali, Keshav, Pt Chandrashekhar, S H Bihari, Saraswati Kumar Deepak, Tanveer Naqvi, and Vishwamitra Adil.

By 1954, Lata Mangeshkar had worked with 68 music directors and 110 lyricists. Top six music directors, namely C Ramchandra (183), Shankar Jaikishan (108), Husnlal Bhagatram (98), Anil Biswas (98), Roshan (65) and Naushad (53) alone composed 705 of these Lata Mangeshkar songs !

Top six lyricists, viz Rajinder Krishan (160), Shailendra (87), Shakeel Badayuni (75), Hasrat Jaipuri (73), P L Santoshi (61) and Prem Dhawan (40) penned as many as 396 of these songs.

We notice that Lata Mangeshkar sang 172 songs in 43 movies of 1954. The blog has 140 of these songs. All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 of these movies are covered in the blog. That leaves us with only 13 movies of 1954 that offers us a few Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss.

Alphabetically, the first such movie of 1954 is “Baazooband” (1954).

“Baazooband”(1954) was directed by Ashalata Biswas and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Variety Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sulochana Chatterji, Balraj Sahni, Roopmala, Anwar, Ramesh Kapoor, baby saroj, Om Prakash, Noorie, Linford, Shanta Kunwar, Noorjahana, Brahm, Indira, Sindura etc with Radhakishan as guest artist.

There were seven songs in the movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

The movie had five Lata Mangeshkar songs in it. They were all solo songs. The two songs covered in the blog were both Lata solos. So three more Lata songs are yet to be covered in the blog.

Here is the third such song from “Baazooband”(1954). the song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Prem Dhawan is the lyricst. Music is composed by Md Shafi. Like other Lata Mangeshkar songs, this song is picturised on Roopmala. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify others seen in the picturisation.

As a simpleton, I thought that Deepawali is a one day festival which is celebrated on amawasya day. Now I realise that Deepaawali begins two days in advance, namely on tryodashi (or teras). This day is popularly called Dhanteras. Next day viz chaturdashi is Narak Chaturdashi aka Chhoti deewaali. Next day, viz amawasya is the day of Laxmi pooja, and it is the real Deepaawali day. Next day, the first day of next lunar cycle, is Govardhan pooja. Next to that is Bhai dooj. That is not all. On the sixth day after Deepaawali is Chhat, a very important festival in Bihar.

I am not the only simpleton. There are others. For instance, there are people who think that Govardhan pooja has something to do with Gobar (cow dung). 🙂 Not really, Govardhan pooja is pooja of Govardhan parvat, the parvat that Lord Krishna lifted to protect Gokulwasis from severe rain.

In addition to simpletons, even agenda driven activists have a field day during Deepaawali festival. They leave no stones unturned to tell us that bursting crackers during Deepaawali is the cause behind air pollution, and that fire cracker burning deewaali celebrators are big polluters.

On checking up, I found that in India 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

So, Deepaawali contributes just 5 % of total air pollution. crop burning, which takes place in the same season contributes thrice as much pollution. vehicles, which ply round the year and not just on the day of deepaawali have been subjecting our lungs to five times more pollution that too round the clock throughout the year.

If we have to do introspection, we have to do wholesale introspection, and not just point an accusing finger towards deepaawali celebration.

The World Health Organization evaluated the concentration of PM2.5 particles to determine the most polluted place on Earth. PM2.5 (fine particulate matter 2.5) refers to tiny particles or droplets in the air that are two and one-half microns or less in width. These particles come from car, truck, bus, and off-road vehicle exhausts and from operations that involve the burning of fossil fuels such as wood, heating oil, or coal. They can also originate from indoor sources such as smoking tobacco, cooking, burning candles, or using fireplaces.

PM2.5 is an air pollutant that is a concern for people’s health when levels in the air are high. These particles reduce visibility and make the air appear hazy when levels are elevated. Some cities, such as New York, issue a PM2.5 Health Advisory when conditions are considered to be unhealthy for sensitive groups.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index calculated for major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: particle pollution (PM2.5), ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. The AQI ranges from 0 to 500, with zero representing clean air and 500 being the most hazardous. Values of 100 or below are generally thought of as satisfactory; however, when values are above 100, air quality is considered unhealthy for certain at-risk groups of people and becomes more unsafe as the value increases.

The cleanest countries in the world, as determined by the Environmental Performance Index (EPI), have high air quality, clean water, and strong environmentally-friendly policies and initiatives. These countries include Switzerland, France, and Denmark.

A total of 92 nations were evaluated to determine which had the highest number of PM2.5 – or which nations were the most polluted.

Air pollution is a severe problem in several countries. I found out that one can accurately classify countries as first world, third world etc based on air pollution level. The countries suffering the worst pollution level in the world are- Bangladesh (97.1 microgram/ cubic metres), Pakistan(74.27), India (72.5), Afghanistan (61.8),Bahrain (59.8), Mongolia (58.8). They are followed by Kuwait, Nepal, UAE, Nigeria and Indonesia.

Interestingly, first world countries like USA, European countries, Japan, Singapore etc actually have clear air, even though some of them are densely populated and highly industrialised. For example USA (9.05), Germany (13.01), Japan (12), Great Britain (10.83), France (13.16), Singapore (14.8) etc have clean air, even though some of them are located in the neighbourhood of third world countries. For instance, Singapore is located near Indonesia. Taiwan (18) is located adjacent to China (41), Israel (18) is surrounded by countries with higher pollution etc.

One can see that China, for all its pretensions of being the second largest economy in the world does not have clean air that first world countries have. So China, like India, is very much a third world country, air quality wise.

One can notice that India and almost all its neighbours have the worst air quality in the world. Except India and Nepal, other neighbours of India do not even celebrate Deewaali, nor are they industrialised. So, it is all about discipline, viz following rules (including pollution control rules) in our day to day lives. India and its neighbours are the most indisciplined countries in the world, who disobey laws and rules with abandon, and pay the price. They do not even realise that they are paying a heavy price. We in our region are taking in highly polluted air into our lungs day in and day out.

AQI (Air Quality Index) which is a superset of PM2.5 based rating is widely used to check the air quality of places. AQI below 50 is supposed to be GOOD. 51-100 is Moderate, 101 to 200 is poor, 201-300 is unhealthy, 301 to 400 is severe, 401 to 500 is hazardous.

Today, New Delhi has AQI of 390 (PM2.5 of 233), Mumbai 64 (31), Pune 221 (48), Kolkata 122 (53).

It is not that entire India is suffering from air pollution. We have places in Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala etc whose AQI is below 50 which means they enjoy clear air. For instance, Mysore, Hubli, Kozhikode, Chennai etc have acceptable air quality as of now. So if we can achieve acceptable air quality in parts of India (thanks to disciplined and responsible behaviour), it can be done elsewhere as well. Though there has been no dearth of people telling us about the ill effects of Deepaawali fire crackers, few people seem to bother about the alarming air quality throughout. It is high time we became aware of that and started taking action to rectify this situation. We cannot hope to become a first world country if we have third world level air quality.

So, unlike some others who would exhort people to shun fire crackers, I exhort people to become aware of the fact that India has very poor air quality and we are breathing in highly polluted air. We must act to improve our air quality. We need to do far far more than just shun fire frackers. We need to stop polluting the air which we are doing thanks to our irresponsible industrial and agricultural activities. Countries far more industrialised than us have managed to have cleaner air. It is time we did the same.

For now, let us celebrate Deepaawali in a responsible and safe way. Deepaawali is the festival of light. Light here does not simply mean physical light, it also means being better informed. Incidentally, the word “enlightened”, which is a synonym of “informed” has the word light in it, and that is no coincidence. Let us be enlightened and let us realise that deepaawali is the festival of lights. In addition to physical light, let us light the light of enlightenment as well.

Deepaawali is the day of Laxmi poojan. Laxmi, the goddess of wealth blesses those who are enlightened though education, training, research etc and who are able to create wealth through their enlightened activities, be they manufacture of goods, or provision of services. We find that the people whom Goddess Laxmi blesses on this day are those people who provide quality goods and services. Those who are buying these products are serving as willing couriers of wealth and they are handing over their wealth to the providers of quality goods and services. All this while, people doing deepaawali shopping are under the illusion that they are worshipping goddess Laxmi, whereas Goddess Laxmi has already been worshipped by those who are selling their stuff to the shoppers. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a deepawali song from “Jeewan Tara”(1951). This movie, apparently a dubbed movie from south, was produced and directed by Joseph Teliyeth for Citadel Films Corporation Limited, Madras. The movie had T R Mahalingam, T R Rajkumari, P S Veerappa, K Sarangpaani,C V Nayagam,K P Kamatchi, C V V Tirupathi, Somu, Swaminathan, T P Rajalakshmi,V Susheela,T S Jaya, Lallitha,Padmini etc in it.

The song, second song from the movie to appear in the blog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and prosperous deepaawali.

Blog Day :

Today, October 19, 2020 is the 25th Remembrance Day of Baby Naaz, one of the super child artists of Hindi films who has enthralled the Hindi cinema buffs with her memorable roles. She was a destitute child in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954), the young Paro in ‘Devdas’ (1955), an orphan girl in ‘Do Phool’ (1958), a teenage daughter caught in the marital discord of her parents, Guru Dutt and Veena in ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) and many more roles.

Baby Naaz’s life from her childhood days to teenager has been traumatic and unhappy. Baby Naaz’s undated interview which appeared in ‘Stardust’ magazine sometime in mid-1970 is an indication of how a child has been exploited by her mother by pushing her into Hindi films as a child artist depriving her of schooling and a good childhood to make the family’s life comfortable. In today’s world, Baby Naaz’s case would come in the ambit of child abuse by her mother. From the age of 4, she has been the bread winner for her family when she started performing as a dancer on the road side stage shows. At the age of 8, she became a child artist in Hindi films which continued till her adulthood. In this process, Baby Naaz struggled with her 3-4 shifts of shooting a day depriving her of a normal childhood.

Based on Naaz’s interview mentioned above and also on Khalid Mohamed’s article in ‘The Daily Eyes’- July 8, 2020 and an article which appeared in December 29, 2017 issue of ‘Jansatta’, the life story of Naaz has been sumarised below:

Baby Naaz, (Real name: Salma Baig) was born in Mumbai on 20/08/1944 in a poor family. Her father, Mirza Dawood Baig was a story writer who was trying his luck to sell his stories for Hindi films but was unsuccessful. He remained unemployed beside being a sickly person. Baby Naaz’s mother was an ambitious lady who pushed Baby Naaz to Hindi films as a child artist so that with her income, she can run the house and have a comfortable life. Her father was against his daughter working in the film. But due to the extreme financial problem faced by the family, he reluctantly agreed to his friend, Lekhraj Bhakri’s request to let her do a childhood role of Suraiya in ‘Resham’ (1952). Salma Baig was given a screen name, ‘Baby Naaz’.

Due to her busy shooting schedules, Baby Naaz could not attend the school regularly for which she was rusticated. For the same reason, she had no time for enjoying her childhood. On the other hand, there was constant fights between her father and mother. Deprived of a normal childhood with love and affection from her parents, Baby Naaz twice attempted suicide by jumping into a well at the age of 10 but was saved by her maid servant.

When Naaz was 12, her parents separated and she started living with her mother. About 4 years later, her mother remarried to a film cameraman and shifted to her husband’s house. Slowly, she realised that she was the sole bread winner not only for her mother but also for her lover who had now become her step-father.

Baby Naaz came into limelight as a child artist in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954) in which she played the role of a destitute child along with Master Rattan. She enacted the emotional scenes as well as comedy acts very well. The film was shown in Cannes’ International Film Festival in 1955 where both Baby Naaz and Master Rattan were tied to receive the special commendations from the Jury. With this, Baby Naaz became the most sought-after child artist and worked in a spate of films during 1954-59. Around 1960 onwards, Naaz started getting roles as a major, mostly as a character actor though in a few films, she had also got the lead roles in ‘B’ grade films.

During the shooting of ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), Naaz became close to Subbiraj, a nephew of Prithviraj Kapoor. Both of them had the second lead roles and decided to convert their closeness into a marriage. However, families from both sides were against this marriage. Their courtship continued for 5 years. It was during the shooting of ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), in which they were in the lead roles, they got married during the outdoor shooting of the film in Pratapgarh Fort. They returned to Mumbai as a married couple.

After the marriage, Naaz felt for the first time that she had got the love and affection which she had missed in her childhood. After the marriage, Naaz had to cut down her assignments in the films due to household responsibilities. In the 1970s, she started working with Kalyanji-Anandji for their musical programmes as a compere. In the 1980s, she almost stopped acting in the films as she had become a dubbing artist for some actresses from the south especially for Sridevi.

After a traumatic childhood and teens, Naaz was happy with her married life. When the time came for her to enjoy a life of contentment with her husband and two children, a tragedy struck in her life. In 1995, Naaz was diagnosed with cancer which was on a terminal stage. She breathed her last on October 19, 1995 when she was 51.

Baby Naaz worked in around 125 Hindi films during 1952-86 of which she worked as a child artist in about 50 films. In the 1960s, Naaz got opportunity to work as a lead/second lead actor in ‘Lambe Haath’ (1960), ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), ‘Gangu’ (1962), ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), ‘Chaar Darvesh’ (1964), ‘Rocket Girl’ (1965) and Chhaila Babu’ (1967). However, these films did not do well at the box office.

After her marriage in 1963, Naaz restricted her film appearances by choosing the films in which the roles interested her. I find that post-marriage, most of the films in which she acted belonged to big banners and under good directors like M Sadiq in ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967), Sateyn Bose in ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967), Lekh Tandon in ‘Jahaan Pyaar Miley’ (1969), Manmohan Desai in ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (1970), Dulal Guha in ‘Dushman’ (1972). Hrishikesh Mukherjee in ‘Phir Kab Milogi’ (1974), Asit Sen in ‘Bairaag’ (1976), B R Chopra in ‘Karm’ (1977), Basu Chatterjee in ‘Sheesha’ (1986) etc.

On the occasion of the 25th Remembrance Day of Naaz, I present a song from ‘Gangu’ (1962) which was one of her films with a lead role for her. The film was directed by Promod Chakravarty. The song is ‘kya kaha zara phir kaho’ which is a duet sung by Subir Sen and Geeta Dutt. The song is written by Prem Dhawan is picturised on Chandrashekhar and Naaz which is set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.
