#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1951’ movie ‘Maalti Maadhav’ or ‘Malti Madhav’.

Here is the brief about this movie.

“Malti Madhav-1951’ was directed by M. Nilkanth for ‘Prasann Pictures’.

It was produced by Bhalerao-Shriniwas Joshi.

The cast of this movie included Durga Khote, Anand Marathe, Baby Shakuntala, Indu Pal, Pittu, Sushant, Vasant Shinde, Indu Kulkarni, Ganpat Rao, Gauri, Kelkar, Subodhini, Takalkar, Kumud Lele, Bargir, Suman, Raj Kishore, Sulochana and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.04.1951.

“Malti Madhav” is based on the famous ‘Sanskrit Play’ of the same name by the great poet Bhavbhuti.

Here is the brief about Bhavbhuti and the story of this movie as mentioned on ‘Wikipedia’ and quoted by our Respected Arunkumar ji in his post with a song from this movie presented on the blog on 15.09.2020.

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960). Lyrics for all the songs have been written by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music for this movie has been composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Lata Mangeshkar, Malti Pande, Sudhir Phadke have given their voices to the songs in this movie. Though singer’s name for three songs has not been identified and mentioned in the list of songs in HFGK.

However as per the footnote given at the end for this movie in HFGK it is mentioned that as told by Sudhir Phadke, the voice of Lalita Phadke also appears in one of the songs of this movie.

So far, four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as per following details. (In order they were posted)

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Baandh preet phool dor Lata Mangeshkar 25.07.2011
02 Man mein mere angaarey hain Lata Mangeshkar 28.07.2011
03 Man saunp diya anjaane mein Lata Mangeshkar 08.08.2018
04 Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhaaye re Malti Pande 15.09.2020

We can see from the above table that this movie made its debut on the blog on 25.07.2011 and the second song also followed within three days on 28.07.2011. However, the third song from this movie took another seven years and it was posted on 08.08.2018. The fourth song appeared after a gap of two years thereafter.

Today we are going to listen to the fifth song from this movie more than two years after the fourth song was posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a ‘sweet’ song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar with beautiful verses by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music is composed Sudhir Phadke.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Editor’s note:-This song is the 100th song by Pt Narendra Sharma in the blog as a lyricist.

Let us listen to this beautiful song …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————
(Birth Anniversary – Rajkamal – A tribute)

Today 15th January’2023 is the ninety-fifth birth anniversary of Music Composer Rajkamal ji (born on 15th January 1928 – passed away on 1st September 2005).

Rajkamal has given timeless musical classics such as ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’, ‘Chashm –E-Buddoor’ to Hindi Film Industry and he also composed the music for B.R. Chopra’s ‘epic serial on TV’ – ‘Mahaabharat’.

He had also sung a few songs in Hindi movies. As a tribute to him on his birth anniversary we will listen to a song sung by him from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’.

“Akhand Saubhaagyawati” was directed by Rakesh Nahta for ‘Dhwani Prakash, Bombay’. He was also the producer of this movie.

It had Reeta Bhaduri, Arvind Kumar, Kalpana Deewan, Chandrakant Pandya, Nalin Dave, Kanchan Mattu, Kamini Bhatiya, Krupadev Yanik, Javed Mishra, Chandrakant Thakkar, Vishnu Kumar Vyas, Master Bittoo and others.

HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in its foot note for this movie that as per Lyricist-Composer Keshav Rathod (Ahmedabad) this movie was originally made in Gujarati language with the title ‘Amar Rahe Taaro Chaandlo’. Its Hindi edition was made as ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ with re-shooting the whole movie again.
This movie has five songs which were converted to Hindi by Pt. Narendra Sharma from the original songs in Gujarati by Keshav Rathod.

This movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981.

As mentioned above this movie has five songs written by Narendra Sharma and composed to music by Rajkamal.

Rajkamal himself, Hemlata, and Sushma Shreshtha had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Rajkamal.

Only the audio of this song is available now. And I guess that the video of this movie and its songs is not available as of now or I could not find them.

Let us now listen to the today’s song which is ‘ojha’ song and talks about the ‘jantar mantar’ by him.

I have not been able to note down correct words at many places and I would request knowledgeable readers to provide the correct words there. And also throw light on this movie and its songs.

With today’s song this movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati-1981’ makes its debut on the blog.

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————

Nowadays whenever I browse the blog, specially the list of movies, I also look at the list of yearwise movies already represented on the blog. Music lovers and readers associated with this blog and Hindi Film Music must be aware that only there are over 40,000 songs created in the history of HFM between 1931 till 1980. Of course there are many creations lost in the oblivion whose records or audio have been lost with time and there is no possibility of getting them.

When this blog was in its initial years Atul ji had mentioned in one of his posts that according to an estimate there might be 25000 songs available for us for songs upto 1980.

However I presume that many songs have since become available online during the last decade or so. So, the actual number of songs may go above 25000.
(Thanks to the passionate and enthusiastic music lovers and sources who upload songs on the digital platform.).

If someone regularly browses this blog, internet, HFGK and/or other sources where the list of all songs from a movie is available can notice such songs which are still to be posted here on this blog.

Today I present one such song whose audio was not available till a few years back.

This song is from the movie ‘Saagar-1951’.

I came across this song when I was looking for a Manna Dey song from the year ‘1951’.

This movie ‘Saagar-1951’ had made its debut on the blog on 15.01.2014. Two more songs were added in the blog subsequently –one on 04.02.2014 and another on 11.02.2017.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

“Saagar-1951” was directed by P. Jairaj for ‘P.J. Films Unit’ his home productions. It had Nargis, Jairaj, Bharat Bhushan, K.N. Singh, Veera, David, Durga Khote, Banke, Rajni, Krishna, Vimla, Neelam, Cecil, Bindu and others.

As mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) this movie was passed by Censor Board on 02.06.1951.

This movie has ten songs written by Pt. Narendra Sharma. Music for this movie is composed by S.K. Pal.

Geeta Dutt, Sulochana Kadam, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Rajkumari are the voices who have sung songs in this movie.

(we will have the detailed list of songs of this movie in future post with a song from this movie).

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Pt. Narendra Sharma is the lyricist and music is composed by S.K. Pal.

I am not able to note down correct words at many places where I have marked (?). I would request readers with keener ears to help to provide these missing words.

Let us move over to the song now…

This is his 900th write-up in the blog.

My God ! This is my 900th post on the Blog !

I just can’t believe it. I feel like having written my First post just the other day. How time flies !

But this also means that I have enjoyed writing posts on this Blog. It has been exactly 8 years that I have been writing posts, primarily on old time films, songs and the people connected with them. My first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, when I was 72 year old. At the end of the 8 years period, I have 900 articles on my name and I am 80 years old.

When my first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, I had already posted 400 comments, film reviews and information tit bits on old films on the Blog. With so much of information, it was expected by Atulites that someday I will write posts. Personally. I had never thought of that. There is a story behind how my posts started appearing on this Blog.

At the end of September 2012, one of my friends sent me a song from the film Savitri-1937. I was quite excited to get such a rare song. Savitri-37 was the first Mythological film by Bombay Talkies and also their popular Hero Ashok Kumar ( later he acted in one more Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu”-46. Thank God he never acted in another Mythological film ! He was a perfect misfit in them.). I wrote to Atul ji that I had that song and suggested that he should post it. I volunteered to provide the necessary details of the film etc. He wrote back asking me to send him the information on that song. Enthusiastically, I wrote a long essay-like post about the film, song, story etc. and sent it to him, so that he should post the rare song.

Next day i.e. on 1-10-2012, I got an email from Atul ji that he has posted the write up on film Savitri song, as my Post. I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, I was thrilled too ! My post and on this Blog ? How sweet ! By evening, there were 36 comments on the post. Most Atulites welcomed my step of becoming a post contributor. I was really overwhelmed. Then I decided, anyway I was in the Swimming Pool, so why not enjoy swimming ?

Thus started my journey of 900 posts. All the credit goes to our Leader- ATUL JI. His encouragement, motivation and help from time to time was an asset for me. Atul ji is not expressive about the good deeds he does, but I am indebted to him. I learnt using the Computer when I was past my 70 years of age. So, there used to be many mistakes in my typing the articles like in using the upper/lower cases, use of Capitals, Punctuation marks, construction of sentences etc etc. But Atul ji and Sudhir ji stretched their tolerance limits to maximum and accepted me as I was. Since 2018 onwards, I conscientiously made changes in my writing, checking the article for mistakes, doing corrections before sending it etc. I also changed the type of the script Font that I was using, for more clarity of reading and today, I feel, my writings are far better than earlier times. Sudhir ji’s help has been particularly useful in the last 8 years. Thank you, ATUL JI and SUDHIR JI, for making me what I am today in the Blogosphere and amongst the like minded people of the Internet, Facebook etc.

My 800th post was on 29-9-2019. The 900th post too is in September. Thanks to all my readers, friends, Group Atulites and well wishers.

Today’s song is from the film Malati Madhav-1955. This is a story from the Sanskrit play ‘Malti Madhav’ written by Bhavbhuti. Wikipedia has this to say about Bhavbhuti and the story of Malati Madhav….

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

Today’s song is sung by Malati Pande and chorus. Malati Pande is one of my most favourite marathi singers. Her Bhavgeets in the 50’s decade were extremely popular in Maharashtra and with all the Marathi people wherever they were in the world. Malati Pande was also a Classical singer and has sung very few songs in Hindi films, but excelled in Classical and Marathi songs. Her songs like ” tya tithe, palikade, tikde, maziya priyeche zopde” or ” kunihi paay naka vajavu” are evergreen. She is one of those Marathi singers like Manik Verma, Jyotsna Bhole, Hirabai Badodekar, Saraswati Rane, Shobha Gurtu, Nalini Mulgaonkar, Ram Marathe, Bhimsen Joshi, D.V.Paluskar etc, who just visited Hindi films out of curiosity, but returned to their comfort zones immediately.

Malati was born on 19-4-1930 at Poona, She was attracted to music from her childhood. She was trained by several teachers like Bhaskarrao Ghodke, Trivedi Master, Vilayat Hussain Khan, Vinayak buwa Patwardhan, Bholanath Ghatt and also her husband Pt. Padmakar Barve. At the age of 15 years, she was invited to sing on A.I.R. Poona. She did her Ph.D in Music.

When Sudhir Phadke brought her to Prabhat for audition, for songs of Marathi version of ‘ Aagey Badho ‘-47, Fattelal was very happy with her style of singing and thanked Phadke. Malati Pande’s first lori song “kunihi Paay Naka vajavoo…” was with Singer & Music Director Gajanan Watve and poet Shrinivas Kharkar. It is said that afterwards, many singers and music directors recorded lori songs, but Malati Pande’s this lori song is the best and is still remembered by the Marathi listeners.

Malati Pande sang many Marathi songs under the music direction of Gajanan Watve, Sudhir Phadke, Ram Phatak, Shrinivas Khale, Datta Dawjekar, Madhukar Pathak etc.

Malati Pande sang some 15 Hindi songs under the music direction of K. Bhole, Avinash Vyas, Sudhir Phadke in the following Hindi films – Seeta Swayamvar-48, Maya Bazar-49, Shrikrishna Satyabhama-51, Shri Vishnu Bhagwan-51 and Malati Madhav-55.

Malati married classical singer Pt. Padmakar Barve. They have a son Rajiv Barve who is a singer. His daughter Priyanka Barve is also a famous singer in Marathi and Hindi films. Malati Pande died on 27-12-1997.

Let us now enjoy her last song in Hindi films…

Today’s song is from the film Jwar Bhata-44. It is an important film of the 40’s, because it was the Debut film of Dilip Kumar.

In Hindi film industry, the “Trimurti”of Raj, Dev and Dilip dominated the decades of late 40s, 50s and the 60s- a period of about 25 years in the Golden Age of Hindi films.These three were the most popular, most talked about and the most ‘ín demand’ actors when they were in full form. Each one had a dedicated fixed audience for their films.There were others equally,if not better, actors in this period like, Ashok Kumar, Motilal,Balraj Saqhni, Sanjeev Kumar etc, but these three were different.

What was so different in them ? One point strikes me most, that they never compromised,in selecting films or roles. In other words, once they got established as Heroes, they did not do any roles which did not suit their temperament, style or capacity. For example, when Ashok Kumar was famous as a Romantic Hero,he acted in a Mythological film, “Savitri’-1937, to do Satyavan’s role. Again in 1945, he did the title role in the film ‘Humayun”. Both these Genres were misfits to his image then. He looked pathetic in those misfitting roles. The big three kept off such venturisms, thoughtfully !

Secondly, they always chose only the big banners and ensured they got the maximum footage, the best songs and the best scenes. Thirdly, they never worked with heroines other than A class and of their choice.

Agewise, Dilip Kumar was the seniormost, having been born in 1922. Dev Anand was next, from 1923 and the youngest was Raj kapoor, born in 1924.However, he was the first to die, in 1988. Careerwise, Rajkapoor had only 41 years’ career, from Hamari Baaten-43 (first adult role) to Kim-84. Next was Dilip Kumar, having a career span of 54 years – from Jwar Bhata-44 to Qila-98. Dev Anand had the longest career span of 65 years, from Hum Ek Hain-46 to Chargesheet-2011. He was also the only one of the three, to continue in the next Century, i.e. 21st Century !

All the three gor Dadasaheb Phalke award. Raj Kapoor got it in 1987 at his 63rd year, Dilip Kumar in 1994,when he was72 years and Dev Anand received it in 2002, when he was 79 year old.

While Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand started as Heroes (rather one of the Heroes) in their careers, Raj Kapoor started as a Child artiste in film Inqilab-35 and did 3 films as adult roles, before he became the hero in film Neel Kamal-1947. The first one to become Hero was Dilip Kumar in Jwar Bhata-44 and next was Dev Anand in Hum Ek hain-46.

During my association with this Blog and in my 870 posts, which I wrote here, I have hardly written about songs of these 3 actors. I don’t remember exactly, but I think I have written about 2 films each of Raj, Dev and Dilip, so far. The first film of Dilip Kumar I wrote about was the film Milan-1946 and today’s film Jwar Bhata-44 is his second film today. This is his Debut film.

One more point about these three actors. It was only Raj kapoor’s First Heroine Madhubala, who also became a famous A grade actress. In case of Dilip Kumar, his first Heroine, Mridula Rani and Dev Anand’s first heroine Kamala Kotnis, never took off in Hindi films, nor did they reach A grade status. In a span of a few years, their careers as heroines ended. The Shortest career was of Kamala Kotnis ( who was actually a Telugu actress, married to a Marathi Cinematographer Pandurang Kotnis, who was the younger brother of Dr. Dwarkanath Kotnis, on whose life, V.Shantaram had made the film “Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani”-1946). Mridula survived longer with about 60 films, upto 1980 to her credit. The last I had heard about her was, in 2016 when she was alive and stayed in Worli, Mumbai. As far as Madhubala’s career, we all know too well.

Incidentally, the case of actress Ameeta was also similar. She was the heroine of Shammi Kapoor in film “Tumsa Nahin Dekha-1957”. He became a big star, but Ameeta remained as a B and C grade film actress. The opposite is the career of Meena Kumari. In her initial career, she was the Heroine of Mahipal. Later Meena Kumari became a big A class actress, but Mahipal remained where he was- B class films.

The case of Dilip Kumar was opposite to Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand’s cases. Both these actors struggled hard in their initial stages, but Dilip was extraordinarily lucky. He was actually invited to be a Hero directly. Here is his story, how he came into the film line…

Born as Yusuf khan in Peshawar, on 11-12-1922, he was third amongst 12 siblings. His father moved to Bombay in 1930 to set up the family’s Dry Fruit business. Yusuf graduated (B.A.) from Khalsa College and took up his first job as Assistant manager in the Army Canteen at Deolali Camp, near Nashik in Maharashtra. Unlike the other two stars (Raj and Dev), he had absolutely no connection in his family with film line, dramas or any art for that matter. One brother did MBBS and settled in the UK, another did Management course and the youngest Nasir Khan alone joined films – much later than Dilip Kumar.

Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies had gone for shopping, one day. At one fruit shop, she saw Yusuf, who had, by chance, replaced his ill father, in the shop. She found his face sensitive and eyes expressive. She called him, talked to him and gave him her card, asking him to meet her next day at the studios. After the routine Screen tests,interview etc, Yusuf was taken in by Bombay Talkies as an apprentice. Devika Rani started grooming her personally. Bhagvati Charan Sharma, famous Hindi writer, employed by Bombay Talkies then, gave yususf the name Dilip. The suffix Kumar was borrowed from Ashok kumar. Bunny Rueben, Film Historian says, “Devika Rani came up with three names – Dilip Kumar, Vasudev and Jahangir. Yusuf selected Dilip kumar.”

Bombay Talkies was heaven for New talents. It had launched and relaunched to fame, Heros like Ashok Kumar,Jairaj, kavi Pradeep, directors K A Abbas, N R Acharya, Najam Naqvi, Amiya Chakrawarty, Gyan Mukherjee, Bimal Roy and actresses Renuka Devi, Mumtaj Shanti, Ranjana and many more. Dilip Kumar’s first film in Bombay Talkies was Jwar Bhata-44. He was not the main Hero. Agha was the main Hero. Dilip was the second hero. His Heroine-Mridula Rani was also a New Entrant.

In his first film, Dilip Kumar did not impress anybody. He was criticised heavily by Baburao patel, who called him Ánaemic and one who needs a lot of good food to look better. As such, even Bombay Talkies also did not have much expectation from him. They had pinned their hopes on the new Heroine Mridula Rani. With every film, Dilip Kumar improved, beyond belief and India got an A class actor.

The story of Mridula is sad. She fell into marital trouble and sank deep into it. She took a break of about 4 years and when she came back, she had to accept only character roles, which she did.

Mridula was a victim of her contract with Bombay Talkies. It destroyed her career as a Heroine forever. Devika Rani was her Mentor in Bombay Talkies. However, after Himanshu Rai’s death, no one was listening to her in the company due to groupism. Disgusted, Devika rani left Bombay Talkies,having sold all the shares. Mridula got stuck in the company without work, due to her 5 year contract. It was Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures who somehow convinced Bombay Talkies to loan her to him and she got roles in 2 of their films. In the film ‘Bhakta Dhruva”-47, she played mother to 16 year old Shashi kapoor (sr) when she herself was about 23 year old only ! But she had no choice. The film and her role became famous, but she lost her chances of becoming Heroine in any film thereafter for ever.

Mridula ( real name Chandrakanta) was born on 2-11-1924 at Almora, but was educated in Delhi. When she was in college doing her graduation, Amiya Chakravarty of Bombay Talkies came to Delhi on a Talent Hunt. He contacted her and gave her an offer. She signed a 5 year contract with Bombay Talkies and Devika Rani became her Mentor, teaching her everything. She was paid 2500 rupees salary with a furnished house. Her first film was “Jwar Bhata”-44, opposite another Debutant Dilip Kumar (Yousuf Khan). After Himanshu Rai’s death, Bombay Talkies was already in disarray. Many people had left the company due to differences with Devika Rai. A group of them formed Filmistan.

After getting released from Bombay Talkies, she acted in few films – Samaj ko badal dalo-47Bhakt Dhruv-47, Toote taare-48, Nar Narayan-49, Veer Babruvahan-50 and Ram Darshan-50.

She got married to her lover Mr. G C Andley. However the marriage was unsuccessful and she went back to Delhi. She spent a miserable life selling whatever she had, to survive. She got divorce and came back to Bombay to work in films, in 1954. She worked in 53 films after this. Her last released film was Saboot-80, though she had married again and retired some time before that.

The last I heard about her was, she was living in worli, Mumbai all alone, in 2016. Her only daughter stayed nearby and looked after her.

Today’s song is sung by Parul Ghosh and Amirbai Karnataki. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Blog Day : 4225 Post No. : 15430

11th february is the remembrance day of Pt Narendra Sharma (28 February 1913 – 11 February 1989) .

Present day HFM lovers have no idea about the contributions of Pt Narendra Sharma if they just go by the wikipedia entry on him. The person writing his wikipedia entry has no clue about Pt Narendra Sharma.

Pt Narendra Sharma was a renowned poet who wrote poetry in Hindi and Urdu. Lata Mangeshkar used to read his poerty and sing them on Radio before she became a playback singer. Here is how she described her association with Pt Narendra Sharma:

“I used to call him ‘Papa’. The first time, I met Papa (Pandit Narendra Sharma) it was at Master Vinayak’s residence. He was accompanied by the eminent litterateur Amritlal Nagar. He asked me to sing for him. During those days, I didn’t need a second invitation to sing. I’d burst into a song whenever I was asked. He was a learned man. I’d spend hours listening to him. In 1968, when I recorded the Bhagavat Gita, Papa came home to congratulate me. I was anxious about my Sanskrit pronunciation. Papa assured me I had done a good job. Papa stayed in Khar. I’d visit his home. My ties with him and his family were very strong. His 3 daughters were my age. I’d carry extra clothes to his home and stay overnight. His daughters and I would do dhamaal all night. His wife though Gujarati, adopted the Uttar Pradesh culture after marriage, because Papa was from UP. I never heard him saying a bad word about anyone. I met Harivanshrai Bachchan Saab at Papa’s place. They called each other ‘Bandhu’. I don’t think I was so close to anyone outside the family. I discussed all my problems with Papa. He called me daughter but always addressed me as ‘Lataji’. I objected to that. But he persisted. When he died of a heart attack, I was heartbroken. No one could take his place.”

He was a lyricist in Hindi movies. HFM is repletre with lyrics containing Urdu words. Pt Narendra Sharma would mostly write songs conttaining Sarskritised Hindi. And he proved that one can write immortal songs in pure Hindi. Take the example of the immortal bhajan from “Bhaabhi Ki Choodiyaan”(1962).

This song, Jyoti kalash chhalke was covered in the blog within a few weeks after this blog was started. There were visitors of this blog who logged on to this blog daily just to listen to this song. There was one grandmom who one day complained that the song has been taken off and that she is no longer able to make her young grand daughter listen to this bhajan- a practice that she was following without fail every morning !

I put on this song every day for my baby grand-daughter…and today it says the video has been removed by the user….could you reinstate it please? It’e been so lovely to hear it…along with the lyrics…I learnt the song from your blogpost!

This song has so many heartwarming comments in the blog. One of these comments is from Mrs Lavanya Shah, the daughter of Pt Narendra Sharma !

How many of us know that Vividh Bharati, the musical channel of Akashwani, was started by Pt Narendra Sharma ! When Government of India decided to have a music channel, Pt Narendra Sharma was hired as Chief Producer to start this project. He conceptualised and executed this project. “Vividh Bharati” , a name that he thought of, started its broadcast on 2 october 1957 from Bombay. The very first song that was played on this brand new Radio station was “Naach Mayura Naach”. It was sung by Manna Dey, penned by Pt Narendra Sharma and composed by Anil Biswas.

Many of the programmes that we still listen to today on Vividh Bharati were stated during those early days and they were the brainchild of Pt Narendra Sharma himself ! For instance “Hawa Mahal” is being broadcast on Vividh Bharati right from its beginning.

A programme for fauzi bhais, called Jaimala was started in Vividh Bharati on evenings in 1962, in the wake of China war. On saturday evening, this programme would be presented by a celebrity. This vishesh jaimala is one of the most popular programmes on Radio.

When Asian games were held in New Delhi in 1982, it was Pt Narendra Sharma who wrote the theme song-“swaagatam suswaagatam”. This song has now become a standard song to be played during official functions, such as Republic day etc.

On the occasion of the remembrance day of this remarkable artist, we pay our tributes to him by covering a song from “Satyam Shivam Sundaram”(1978). This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song, a welcome song, is lipsynced by Zeenat Aman and others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. For a change for Pt Narendra Sharma, the lyrics of this song contains mostly Urdu words. The song sounds just as sweet as most songs penned by him.
