And Kavi Pradeep has written a couple of lines for people such as these. . .

kya log thhey wo deewaane
kya log thhey wo abhimaani

Lines that describe so aptly the young rebel lions of India – a group that came together to fight for unshackling the chains of the oppressive and cruel alien rule that had continued to serve its own ends, at the cost of the assets and riches of our nation.  A group that had members from all parts of the country, a group that was formed cutting across all the divisions and components of the society – Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azaad, Bhai Parmanand, Kartar Singh Sarabha, Batukeshwar Dutt, Ashfaaqullah, Shivaram Rajguru, Sukhdev, Ramprasad Bismil, Harnam Singh Saini, Bhagwati Charan Vohra, Durgawati Devi, Kishori Lal, Dharam Singh Hayatpur, Jatendranath Das, Sher Ali Afridi, Jai Dev Kapur, Shiv Verma, Kundan Lal, Mahabir Verma, Rajendra Lahiri, Thakur Roshan Singh, Sachindra Bakshi, Keshab Chakravarty, Banwari Lal, Murari Lal Gupta, Mukundi Lal, Manmathnath Gupta, Mohammed Abdullah, Gaya Prasad, Kanwal Nath Tiwari, Vijay Kumar Sinha, Prem Dutt, Des Raj, Ajay Kumar Ghosh. . . the list goes on and on in the pages of the history of the nation’s struggle for freedom.

Yes, they were “deewaane”. Theirs was a single-mindedness of purpose that put to shame even the word ‘deewaana’ itself. Bhagat Singh was a scholar of political ideologies, and his beliefs, his writings are wondrous gems coming from a mind so young. Violence was not his first or last resort, ideas and ideologies were. On 8th April, 1929, when he and BK Dutt threw two bombs in the legislative assembly in Delhi, they also threw leaflets explaining their cause and their action. The leaflet was written by Bhagat Singh himself. A line in the leaflet says – “It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the ideas. Great empires crumbled, while the ideas survived.” He went on to say – “पिस्तौल, बम, तलवार क्रान्ति नहीं लाते, बल्कि क्रान्ति विचारों की शान से पैदा होती है।” (Revolutions are born from the glory of ideas, not from pistols, bombs or swords).

And yes, they were “abhimaani” indeed. The dignity and pride of self-esteem was paramount. His belief in his right to freedom was steadfast. For him, violence was just an instrument for implementing and showcasing the ideas of freedom. To that end, even Gandhi ji has written in one of his famous articles in the magazine ‘Young India’. The article is titled ‘Between Cowardice and Violence’. In this, Gandhi ji writes,

“My creed of nonviolence is an extremely active force. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness. There is hope for a violent man to be some day non-violent, but there is none for a coward. I have, therefore, said more than once….that, if we do not know how to defend ourselves, our women and our places of worship by the force of suffering, i.e., nonviolence, we must, if we are men, be at least able to defend all these by fighting.”

Bhagat Singh himself wrote these words, when making a statement in court, during the trial of the bombing case –

“Force when aggressively applied is ‘violence’ and is, therefore, morally unjustifiable, but when it is used in the furtherance of a legitimate cause, it has its moral justification”.

After the killing of police officers Saunders in Lahore, Bhagat Singh and his associates escaped and had gone underground. When the plans were made to lob bombs in the Legislative Assembly, at first the group was against Bhagat Singh’s participation, because of his earlier association with the Saunders case. In the end, he prevailed and the group agreed to let him take the lead. The bombs were thrown, the leaflets were flung in the ensuing confusion. And it would have been an easy thing for Bhagat Singh and BK Dutt to escape under the cover of the cloud of smoke. But they stood their ground and let themselves be arrested. For Bhagat Singh believed that striking and then fleeing only ended up proclaiming them as terrorists. His purpose was to stand his ground, be arrested, and then get a visibility and a platform to expound his message to the public at large.

The trial of Bhagat Singh and his associates was, at best, a mockery of the Britisher’s own judicial system. The process adopted by the trial court was put in place through an unauthorized ordinance promulgated by the Viceroy, Lord Irwin. The ordinance itself was never approved by the Legislative Council or the Privy Council, as required by their own law. And it lapsed, even before seeing the light of approval by any authority.

On this fateful day in 1931, the execution was carried out in secrecy, and one day in advance of the announced schedule. The mortal remains of the executed heroes were removed from the jail premises in motor lorries in the dead of the night, and disposed of at an unknown place on the banks of Sutlej river, close to Ferozepur.

The news of the execution broke in newspapers on 25th March, 1931. A nation mourned the demise of the young rebel heroes. Gandhi ji said the following,

Bhagat Singh did not wish to live. He refused to apologise, or even file an appeal. Bhagat Singh was not a devotee of non-violence, but he did not subscribe to the religion of violence. He took to violence due to helplessness and to defend his homeland. In his last letter, Bhagat Singh wrote, ” I have been arrested while waging a war. For me there can be no gallows. Put me into the mouth of a cannon and blow me off.” These heroes had conquered the fear of death. Let us bow to them a thousand times for their heroism.

Subhash Bose praised the ultimate sacrifice with the words, “Bhagat Singh has become the symbol of the new awakening among the youths”.

Pt Nehru acknowledged that Bhagat Singh’s popularity was leading to a new national awakening. He said,:

“He was a clean fighter who faced his enemy in the open field … he was like a spark that became a flame in a short time and spread from one end of the country to the other dispelling the prevailing darkness everywhere”. He would later also write, “Bhagat Singh did not become popular because of his act of terrorism but because he seemed to vindicate, for the moment, the honour of Lala Lajpat Rai, and through him of the nation. He became a symbol, the act was forgotten, the symbol remained, and within a few months each town and village of the Punjab, and to a lesser extent in the rest of northern India, resounded with his name. Innumerable songs grew about him and the popularity that the man achieved was something amazing”.

Mohammed Ali Jinnha wrote,

“. . . he believes in the justice of his cause … however much you deplore them and, however, much you say they are misguided, it is the system, this damnable system of governance, which is resented by the people”.

Four years after Bhagat Singh’s execution, the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Sir Horace Williamson, wrote: “His photograph was on sale in every city and township and for a time rivaled in popularity even that of Mr. Gandhi himself”.

The singular act of ‘deewangi’ and ‘abhimaan’ has made Bhagat Singh a symbol of willful resistance against injustice, in any form or color. These were the young men with a determination of steel, whose resolve to not apologize and not to sign a mercy petition, for their acts of unbridled bravery in the face of an oppressive tyranny.

And the world remembers them. Even more than the image of any other leader of the non-violent or the violent versions of the struggle for freedom, even today one encounters the image of Bhagat Singh staring back from the sides of trucks, rear windshields of cars and other private and public vehicles, graffiti and motifs on the walls in the most unexpected places. It is an enduring legend that has caught the fancy of the people’s minds, from generation to generation.

Ashfaqullah Khan, another legendary martyr who was executed in 1927, at an age of 27 years, for his role in the Kakori train robbery case, wrote this original verse,

शहीदों के मज़ारों पर जुड़ेंगे हर बरस मेले
वतन पे मरने वालों का यही बाकी निशां होगा

On the mausoleums of martyrs
Carnivals of celebration will assemble every year
This shall remain as the last vestige
Of those who sacrificed themselves for the country

Today’s song is from the 1963 film ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh’. The verses are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram. The singing voice is not identified, and I request friends and readers to please help identify it.

The poetry in this song is in Punjabi language. In the lyrics section, I have attempted to also present the lines of poetry in translated Hindi. I seek apology if this translation is not perfect and poetical enough.

23rd March will serve to sustain the legacy and the memory of Bhagat Singh and others.

Lest we forget.

 


Song – Chadh Ke Sooli Bharat Maa De Jis Ne Kasht Nivaare  (Shaheed Bhagat Singh) (1963) Singer – Unattributed, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

waareya jinen desh ton
bachpan ditti ghol jawaani
kadey wi saanu bhagat singh di
bhulni nahin qurbaani

chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

dhan dhan sardar kishen singh
janm jide ghar paaya
thar thar dharti amber kamban
putt sherni jaaya
ghutti de azaadi waali
maata dudh pilaaya
bharat maa ne lai ke us ton
apni god bahaaya
kendi mere kasht nivaarin
je tu mera jaaya
pooja teri hove
mere dukh haringe saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

public safety bill firangi
jadon banaavan lagge
hind lai ik navi musibat
hot jagaavan lagge
bhagat singh te dutt enaan nu
mazaa chakhaavan lagge
vich assembly baamb maareya
sab ghabraavan lagge
khabraan gaiaan london
gorey soch daudaavan lagge
hun na bharat sahe ghulami
kaaran kameti saare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

ona dinaan saandars kise ne
goli naal udaaya
kaatil os da bhagat singh nu
gairaan ne thehraaya
ik baamb da ik katal da
dohra case chalaaya
jhoothiaan lai gawaahiaan onu
faansi da hukam sunaaya
sun ke hukam maut da khidyaa
matthe vatt na paaya
gaj ke naare sheraan vaangu
inqlaab de maare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare
chadh ke sooli bharat maa de
jis ne kasht nivaare
bhagat singh kaumi parwaana
kadey na hind visaare

वारेया जिनें देश तों बचपन
दित्ति घोल जवानी
कदे वी सानु भगत सिंह दी
भुलनी नहीं कुर्बानी

चढ़ के सूली भारत माँ दे
जिसने कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे
चढ़ के सूली भारत माँ दे
जिसने कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे

धन धन सरदार किशन सिंह
जनम जिदे घर पाया
थर थर धरती अंबर कम्बन
पुत्त शेरनी जाया
घुट्टी दे आज़ादी वाली
माता दुद्ध पिलाया
भारत माँ ने लै के उस तों
अपनी गोद बहाया
कैन्दी मेरे कष्ट निवारीं
जे तू मेरा जाया
पूजा तेरी होवे
मेरे दुख हरींगे सारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे
चढ़ के सूली भारत माँ दे
जिसने कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कदे ना हिन्द विसारे

पब्लिक सेफ़्टी बिल फिरंगी
जदों बनावन लग्गे
हिन्द लई इक नवी मुसीबत
होर जगावन लग्गे
भगत सिंह ते दत्त एनां नू
मज़ा चखावन लग्गे
विच असेंबली बाम्ब मारेया
सब घबरावन लग्गे
खबरान गईआं लंदन
गोरे सोच दौड़ावन लग्गे
हुन ना भारत सहे गुलामी

इक बाम्ब दा इक क़तल दा
दोहरा केस चलाया
झूठियाँ लाई गवाहियाँ ओनू
फांसी दा हुकम सुनाया

मत्थे वाट्ट ना पाया
गाज के नारे शेरां वांगू

जिसने अपना बचपन देश पर वार दिया
और घोल दी अपनी जवानी
हम कभी भी भगत सिंह की
नहीं भूलेंगे ये कुर्बानी

चढ़ कर सूली पर जिसने
भारत माँ के कष्ट निवारे
भगत सिंह कौमी परवाना
कभी ना हिन्द भूल पाये

धन्य है सरदार किशेन सिंह
जिनके घर पे जन्म पाया
धरती और अंबर थर थर काँपें
इस वीर शेरनी के पुत्र से
माँ ने जिसे दूध में
आज़ादी की घुट्टी पिलाई
और भारत माँ ने उसे ले कर
अपनी गोद में बैठाया
उससे कहा तू मेरा बेटा
मेरे कष्ट निवार दे
तेरी पूजा होगी
जो तू मेरे दुख हर ले सारे

अंग्रेजों ने जब पब्लिक सेफ़्टी बिल
के बनाने की करी तैयारी
हिन्द के लिए एक नई मुसीबत
और जगाने लगे
भगत सिंह और बटुकेश्वर दत्त
इनको मज़ा चखाने लगे
असेम्बली के बीच बम्ब मारा
सब घबरा गए
लंदन तक खबर जा पहुंची
अंग्रेजों की सोच दौड़ लगाने लगी
सब कहने लगे के अब
भारत गुलामी और नहीं सहने वाला

उन्हीं दिनों पुलिस अफसर साँडर्स का
किसी ने क़तल कर दिया
और गैरों ने भगत सिंह को
क़ातिल कह के फंसा दिया
और भगत सिंह पर दोहरा मुक़द्दमा चला
बम्ब का और क़तल का
झूठी गवाहियां करवा कर
भगत सिंह को फांसी की सज़ा सुना दी
फांसी का हुकम सुन के वो खुश हुआ
माथे पर एक भी बल नहीं आया
और शेर की तरह गरज कर
इंकलाब के नारे लगाए

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 09
———————————————————

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

Today, finally we arrive at a Rafi-Asha duet on the occasion of 96th birth anniversary of legendary composer of beautiful songs, OP Nayyar. I am sure, I have long back looked at this duet and saved the link multiple times in different laptops/folders.

I, for one, am most happy that this was somehow missed by all regular contributors to the blog, and not yet posted.  So that I am having a quintessential Rafi-Asha duet by OPN, which is written by Qamar Jalaalabadi.

Qamar Jalaalabadi has already featured in this series.  So, this post in about Rafi Sahab’s association with Asha Bhonsle and OP Nayyar. Film is ‘Basant’ from 1960. The following 10 songs of this film are already posted on the blog:

Baaje Waala Patiyaale Waala
Chori Chori Ik Ishaara Ho Gaya Hai
Duniya Pakki Four Twenty
Hamne Unke Saamne Pehle To Khanjar Rakh Diya
Mere Dil Pe Lagaa De Darling Apne Naam Ki Chit
Mere Lahange Mein Ghunghroo Lagaa De
Nainon Mein Sooraj Ki Kirnen
Peechhe Hat Hat Hat Babu Chhed Naa
Raaste Mein Ik Haseen
Ukkad Dukkad Bamba

To find an OPN-Rafi song, I was just going through the list of songs Music Director-wise page in the blog and I found that right from ‘Baaz’ (1953) which is the third film score for OPN after ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Chham Chhama Chham’ in 1952, Rafi Sahab is a regular in all his films.  Rafi Sahab has no songs under OPN in the film film ‘Mangu’ (1954).

Significant, popular and hit music scores of OPN-Rafi combination:

 

Year Name of Films
1955 Mr. & Mrs. 55
Musafirkhaana
1956 Bhaagam Bhaag
CID
Choomantar
Hum Sab Chor Hain
Naya Andaaz
Shrimati 420
1957 Johny Walker
Mai Baap
Naya Daur
Qaidi
Tum Sa Nahin Dekha
Ustaad
1958 12 O’clock
Howrah Bridge
Mr. Cartoon MA
Mujrim
Phagun
Sone Ki Chidiya
1959 Do Ustaad
1960 Basant
Jaali Note
Kaplana
Mitti Mein Sona
1962 Ek Musafir Ek Haseena
Hongkong
1963 Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon
1964 Kashmir Ki Kali
1965 Mere Sanam
1966 Aqalmand
Do Dilon Ki Dastaan
Saawan Ki Ghata
Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi
1968 Hamsaaya

This combination gives us a real treat of great songs from mid 50’s to late 60’s. I am getting the feeling that I have missed something in the above list, so it may be worth visiting again.  I have counted 200 plus songs in the excel sheet, so that makes a good sizable portion of all songs composed by OPN in his career.

Total tally of these OPN and Asha Bhonsle songs is as below:

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

As for Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets, 547 of these are posted on the blog.  Compare this with 348 Rafi-Lata duets in the blog. At a guess there are around 450 Rafi-Lata duets, as compared to anything between 650-700 Rafi-Asha duet songs. Rafi-Asha duets are too many to go through at short notice.  So I will surmise to say that these two have sung many iconic and classic songs under numerous music directors, like OPN, SDB, RDB, Ravi, Chitragupt, Kalyanji Anandji etc.

So here’s is song, a duet by OPN in the film ‘Basant’ (1960).  The year 1960 is the peak of OPN, but he was to go on to give greater musical treat to Hindi film music in the 60’s, with Rafi and without Rafi in a rare instance.  His association with Asha Bhonsle is a long one, which eliminated the need for more than one female playback singer in a film’s score.  Asha Bhonsle is the most versatile singer to have graced the Hindi film playback field.  No doubt, OPN has a big role to play in shaping Asha’s career, in the face of stiff competition from her sister Lata Mangeshkar, who ruled the field for more than 30 years.

OP Nayyar has the distinction of having succeeded in the film industry music scene, without having Lata Mangeshkar sing a single song for him.  It makes a big statement about OP Nayyar, to have withstood this sort of situation and survived spectacularly, swimming against the tide.

The song must have been filmed on Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, seeing they are the lead pair of the film.  Johnny Walker and Kammo are another pair in the film, but the song is sounding like a Shammi Kapoor song. So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor, to be posted here on this blog. Rafi-Shammi Association details have to wait for another day.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’. This movie is a making a debut on the blog today, and it is one of the movies from the year 1972 that was missing from the blog till now. Alphabetically this is the eighteenth movie of 1972 as per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Following is the alphabetical list of the first 18 movies of 1972, along with the blog status.

From the above table we can see that the songs for the very first movie of 1972 are so far not available. This movie is ‘Aakraant’.

Thereafter the fifth movie ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ has been introduced by us on the blog on 07.01.2022 and that takes us to next missing movie on the blog which is ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’. This movie is the seventeenth movie in this list alphabetically. I could not find the songs for this movie ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’ and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

That brings us to the next movie which is ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’. Today we introduce this movie from 1972 . I was not earlier aware of the songs of this movie and so far listened this today’s song while noting it down only.

Today’s movie ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’ was directed by Umesh Mathur for Vasant Neerja Pictures, Bombay. The star cast of the film includes Anjana, Dheeraj Kumar, Sulochana, Sujata, Manvendra Chitnis, Roopali, Neelam, Pal Sharma, Radheshyam, Satyajit, Mubarak, Pardesi, Ved Bhushan, Nandu Rathi, Indira Bansal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Dhoomal, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.03.1972.

This movie has six songs, and all are written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Rajan Pal. His name is new for me. From the  HFGK listings, it appears that this is the only film for which he has provided the music. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Jo tum chaahte ho tumhen bhool jaayen Suman Kalyanpur
02 Rangeen thha mera pyaar abhi kal ki baat hai Yash Trikha
03 Sun sun sun o gulaab ki kali Mahendra Kapoor, Krishna Kalle, Yash Trikha.
04 Kitne hai piye jaam mujhe yaad nahin Yash Trikha
05 Suno ek baat sanam, man tora ishq Asha Bhonsle
06 O dharti ke chaand, laal mere so jaa Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur, and it is a nice song to listen.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and picturisation of the songs from this movie.

Let us now listen to the today’s song of which only the audio is available …

With this song the movie ‘Bahaaro Phool Barsaao’ makes its debut on the blog 😊

Song – Jo Tum Chaahte Ho Tumhen Bhool Jaayen (Bahaaro Phool Barsaao) (1972) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Rajan Pal

Lyrics

jo tum chaahte ho
tumhen bhool jaayen ae
to yaadon se kehdo ke
wo bhi naa aayen ae ae
jo tum chaahte ho
tumhen bhool jaayen ae

jahaan milke gaaye thhe
ulfat ke naghme ae
jahaan milke gaaye ae thhe
ulfat ke naghme ae ae
wo manzar tujhe de rahe hain
sadaaien
to yaadon se kehdo ke

जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तो यादों से कह दो के
वो भी ना आयें
जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

जहां मिल के गाये थे
उलफत के नग़में
जहां मिल के गाये थे
उलफत के नग़में
वो मंज़र तुम्हें दे रहे हैं सदाएँ
तो यादों से कह दो के
वो भी ना आयें
जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

मिटे हम तो क्या है
सदा खुश रहो तुम
मिटे हम तो क्या है
सदा खुश रहो तुम
हमारे लबों पर
यही हैं दुआएं
तो यादों से कह दो के
वो भी ना आयें
जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

Blog Day :

Remembering Nargis today on the 91st anniversary of her birth.

Born in the year 1929, she made her debut in films as a child artist as early as 1935. And then starting with 1942, she moved on from child roles to adult roles. As I was searching for a song from her early years in films, I chanced to see this song, which is really very playful and chirpy. And listening to the song made me wonder why has this song so far been away from this blog.

Nargis is all of 21 years of age, as she is singing and trying to hold back Karan Dewan (her husband in the film) from going to office. The words of the song are simple and endearing and the whole ambiance of the scene is very charming. There is a childlike entreaty in the pleadings of the newlywed, as she recounts her hours of boredom when the husband is sway to office. And the husband too is in part a willing accomplice, only that near the end of the song, his elder brother (role played by Shyam Chadha) calls him to leave for office, and he has to perforce make a quick departure from the song and the beseeching wife.

The film is ‘Chhoti Bhabhi’ from 1950. It is produced under the banner of Filmkar Limited, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors in the film is listed as Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyama, Suraiya Chaudhary, Yakub, Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani Jugnu, G Sarang, and Khushdil. Yes, the Johar we see in this list is IS Johar, doing a small role here.

The film has nine songs, all of them are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music is from the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram. It is 1950 – and the voice of an equally young singer, Lata Mangeshkar, sounds so wonderful. The rendition by the singer and the performance on the screen, both are really superb. The outcome is a naughty playful song that is really endearing.

The film has a total of nine songs, of which seven songs are already showcased here. This is the eighth song to find its place on our blog today. With one more to go, this film is ready for the Yippeee category.

This Week, That Year – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
16Aug – 22Aug, 2010
————————————————-
Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 56
————————————————–
Reviewing the week of Aug16 – Aug22, I just thought of doing the analysis in one more way – to just see where all we had been and what all were we listening to during the time from the start of the blog on 19Jul2008 to 22Aug2010. Interesting things appeared.

It all started with thought – what is the distribution of songs across the decades in the week under review. I did a quick sort check and came up with the following data. This week we had seen 31 songs posted in all. And these 31 songs were distributed according to decade as follows,

1930s

1

1940s

4

1950s

16

1960s

9

1970s

1

The distribution is quite as expected – of the 31 songs, 25 songs (80%) are from the decades of 50s and 60s. Goodness, aren’t these the most favorite years of practically all listeners of Hindi film music.

The thought then prompted me to take a view of the total songs posted thus far, i.e. till 22Aug of 2010. By the end of that week, the total number of posts was 2827, and the total number of songs posted was 2928. The 100 odd more songs are due to multiple songs being included in a single post – multipart and multi version songs.

And the results are pretty much along the same lines, as expected. The overall distribution for all songs till 22Aug2010 stands as follows,

1930s 26
1940s 228
1950s 972
1960s 1069
1970s 511
1980s 89
1990s 30
2000s 5

The overall % of the songs from 50s and 60s dips a little – down to 71%, but still, overwhelmingly most songs are still coming from that era. There is a sizeable interest in the 1970s – 17%. I am sure that is due to the fact that we are still listening to our favorite artists from the Golden Era. To approximately round off, the 30s-40s component is 8% and for 80s and beyond the allocation is 4%. In tabular form, as follows

30s-40s 8%
50s-60s 71%
70s 17%
80s+ 4%

Well, much as expected – the distribution of the listening and selection preferences of this group. Well, not maybe every week, but I will try to revisit this analysis after 2/3 months, and see the evolution of our selection preferences with time.

Let’s do the numbers for that week. Total posts that came on board that week is 31. Number of films represented is 27, with four films making a double appearance. Four films had made their debut that week, and no films were yippeee’d. However, since that week over the past 10 years, 24 of these films have been yippeee’d and seven remain pending. Also, that week we had one dot day.

The special event recorded for that week was a blog century. I have now inserted another column in the chart to track the appearance of century milestones. On 16 Aug 2010, the song “Jaan Pehchaan Ho” from the 1966 film ‘Gumnaam’ clocked in on the 28th century milestone for the blog. It was the 2800th post to come on board. Going back to revisit some of these posts, it is very enlightening. It is a delight to recall and refresh the large amount of trivia that is now silently sitting in the electrons on this blog’s storage. About this post – this was a special request post that Greta Memsaab had written for the blog. At 2800 posts, this was only the 12th guest post till then, and the second on by Memsaab. Poring through the article and the comments, one learns and re-learns so much more about these songs – names of the guitarists, name of the dancers, the fleeting appearance by Helen, the fact that the lead in dance music is lifted from the song “Teen Kanastar Peet Peet Kar” (‘Love Marriage’, 1957), and that an ad by Heinken has used this song – the entire lead in music and the mukhda of the song, in the voice of Rafi Sb. It is a revival experience par excellence.

And so, getting into this week. Seven films, and eight challenge opportunities for the team members. I must acknowledge that members are sending in challenge contributions – lyrics and sometimes articles too. And we need more of that. Gear up, and happy posting.

‘Raagini’ of 1958 is one of the two films pending for today’s date. The song being presented is a stage dance song, and as the performance rolls to the end, one finds that it is actually dream sequence song. It is being played out in a dream being experienced by Padmini, as she visualizes herself to be Anaarkali, dancing in the court of Prince Saleem, that is Kishore Kumar, the person she is love with.

The lyrics of this song are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi, the music is composed by OP Nayar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

With this post, the film ‘Raagini’ moves closer to gaining yippeee status, with just one more song pending.

[Author’s Note: This post is the beginning of a weekly series that is about the story of this blog. This story has already been appearing as the weekly challenge information being shared on Whatsapp group. In discussion with Atul ji, we agreed that the weekly presentation of this evolving story has become as good as a post by itself. And so we decided that the weekly information post on Whatsapp will also be duplicated as a post on the blog itself, making a more firm documentation of this story. Hence, this series.]

Missing Films of 1960s – 105
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Slowly moving towards closure, we now have less than 10 more films to go for this series, for which songs are available. Then there is a whole batch of about 80 films from this decade, which seem to have disappeared without a trace (so far). I will give the statistics and other details when we come down to the closing post.

The film I present today is ‘Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo’ from 1969. As the name suggests, this film is most probably about a child seeking acknowledgement and love from one (or both) parents. My surmise is based on checking out the list of songs for this film. Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, and four of these songs are very clearly child related songs – one is a lullaby, then one is a duet with a female voice and a child’s voice, the third is a child’s entreaty requesting for parent’s love, and the fourth is a duet, about a mother searching for a lost child. And incidentally, another film comes to mind – a similar sounding name ‘Aa Galey Lag Jaa’ (1973), which is also a film about a child seeking his father – a very famous and popular song – “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi“.

The other two songs are non-child related. One is a sad/philosophical song in male voice – about departing with a load of sorrows. And the sixth song, which is the song presented today, is a song in female voice – a drunkard song that could well be a club or a bar dance song, or a song of enticement / seduction. Since the video clips are not available, I request our knowledgeable readers who may have seen this film, to please add more information about the song and the film.

The film is produced under the banner of Hari Darshan Chitra, Bombay and is directed by Dutta Dharmadhikari. The cast of actors as per Geet Kosh listings is Bunty, Kumar Sen, Meena Rai, Paresh Kumar, Dharmesh, Akhil Kumar, Ved Bhushan, Santosh Virdi, Gopal Dutt, KS Pawar, Vinod Verma, Ang Pal, Uma Khosla, Gold Flake, Tuntun, and Sarita. You will notice that the list is topped by a child actor – Bunty, supporting the surmise about this being a child centric film. An interesting side note here – the name Bunty rang a faint bell and I checked. My hunch turned out to be correct. Bunty is the same child artist who starred in Chetan Anand’s ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) – another film about an infant child lost in a big city, searching for its parents

The six songs in this film are shared amongst three songwriters – Prem Dhawan, Qamar Jalaalabaadi and Mahendra Dehlvi. The song we present today is from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. Music is by Hansraj Behl.

The singing voice is of Asha Bhosle. As with many other such songs, her rendition is superb – a lady who is so much in stupor, is requesting that the glass of wine be taken from hands, as she may not be able to hold it. One of the best songs in the female drunkard category – my opinion. 🙂

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

Song – Makhmoor Nigaahon Mein Teri Doob Gaye Hum  (Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Hansraj Behl

Blog Day : 3498 Post No. : 14057

The film that is reaching its Yippeee station today is the 1952 film ‘Anjaam’. A journey that started for this film a little over seven years ago – on 1st Jan, 2011. Just out of curiosity, I checked the list of posts for the songs posted on that date, I find that none of the songs on that day were new year songs. My curiosity heightened, I checked the previous new year days and the ones after this date. I find that on our blog, the tradition of new year songs starts with 1st Jan, 2012. Prior to that, on the three new years that came, we did not specifically have any new year songs. But that is a curiosity, to be handled in another post.

‘Anjaam’ is a social drama that is produced under the banner of Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. It is produced by VM Vyas and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors listed for this film in Geet Kosh is Vaijayanti Mala, Premnath, Kuldip Kaur, Yakub, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi, and Chitrlekha amongst others. The eight songs of this film are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Given below is the list of seven songs that came prior to this one.

The song that is being presented today – I had not heard it ever before today. It turns out that is a song that is very different from other normal songs. Although it is a full 3+ minutes song, and is published on one full side of a 78 rpm. But it is not a regular song. After a long instrumental prelude, we hear the verses of the song. And then, with just two short verses, spaced out over a little more than a minute, the song again goes back into instrumental mode. The lines that are sung in this song, are only a chorus of voices, and no other specific singer is identified. It may be likely that this song is just an accompaniment to a dance sequence in the film. Just guessing.

With this curious presentation, the film ‘Anjaam’ joins the ranks of films with all songs posted. Welcome ‘Anjaam’ to yippeee-land.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

Missing Films of 1960s – 42
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

IS Johar had a lead of three years over Raj Kapoor. His film ‘Mera Naam Johar’, released in 1967, preceded the great showman’s masterpiece ‘Mera Naam Joker’ which came in 1970. It is a matter of conjecture now, as to who inspired whom. 🙂

So this film is the debut film for today. IS Johar was going very strong, and travelling to many destinations  in the 1960s. In 1965 we saw him in ‘Goa’ with Memood. In 1966, he travelled to ‘Kashmir’. Then in 1967, along with the proclamation that his name is ‘Johar’, he also appeared in ‘Bombay’. His next trip was somewhat delayed, considered that he travelled overseas to ‘Hong Kong’ in 1971, once again in Mehmood’s company.

The film is produced under the banner of Sudershan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Saran Kant. Besides himself in lead role, other members of the cast include Sonia Sahni, Dhoomal, Aruna Irani, Raj Mehra and Tiwari amongst others. The film has 6 songs listed. Music is from the mind of Usha Khanna. Two songwriters are listed – Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, only three of the songs have a specific lyricist identified. For this song, the lyricist name has not been identified. This song is written by Qamar Sb. (This information is actually available in the addenda to the volume IV of Geet Kosh, which I missed referring to earlier.)

The song is delivered in a very comical situation. And the songwriter has written some very catchy lines to match the situation. Apparently it seems that IS Johar and Sonia Sahni have to make a getaway from the clutches of the villain’s gangsters, who are blocking the roads even, and screening the people coming and going. And the way out found by the hero is something that can happen only in IS Johar films. They form a funeral procession, and they have Sonia Sahni acting like a dead body, being carried in the traditional funerary ‘takht’ on the shoulders of a group of people. IS Johar, with his head tonsured and wearing only a dhoti, seems to be the epitome of the prime mourner, carrying the traditional fire in a ‘matka’.

He leads the singing, with this song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. The group of people accompanying him includes people who are playing the ‘dholak’ and ‘khartaal’ etc. The procession meets the villain’s henchmen in a sort of a road block. And IS Johar is singing and telling the entire real story – that the dead body is  actually ‘zinda’ (alive), and that they are making good an escape with no one the wiser.

The play acting is so convincing that the henchmen who are leading this group of baddies, actually come forward and shoulder the funerary carriage for some distance, even singing along with the group. A most hilarious situation contrived by the director, and so brazenly and blatantly executed by IS Johar and company. IS Johar looks so convincing in his role as a fake mourner, and as he sings along the lines in which he is indicating the truth of the situation, only if someone would listen ‘between the words’. . . – “Jaane Waala Chala Hai Dekho Rok Sakey Na Koi” 🙂

See, listen and enjoy.

Today’s song is from a rare and less known film ‘Lakharani’ from 1945.

Although this was a film made by the great Prabhat Film Company of Poona, unlike earlier Prabhat films this movie never became famous or a landmark film. The reasons were many. The main reason was that it was was made in the period when the company had become very weak after V Shantaram left Prabhat Studios along with some of his chosen people from various departments. Secondly, the storyline of this film was far away from the type of films Prabhat had made in the past. True to its tradition, however, the film had a central theme of “open entry for all castes into Hindu temples“. But it was told through a story of tribal folks and allied jungle people, with whom probably, the audience could not  identify themselves.
