No other month begins with a day that is named after itself.  It is only the month of May that starts with a day that is called May Day.  Historically, this specific day has a long history of cultural and social significance.  A history that goes back to pre-Christ era.  The Romans used to celebrate this day as a spring festival.  The festival was called Floralia, in the honor of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  Further north, in Germany, this day was celebrated as Walburgis Night.  Coinciding with the arrival of summer weather in the European continent, this day was also celebrated as the first day of summer in some regions.  Community fairs were held, with the traditional dancing around the Maypole, and the beauty contest to select and crown the ‘Queen of May’.  People used to distribute anonymous gifts, called May Baskets, in their neighborhoods.

Yash Chopra was born on 27 september (1931) whereas Lata’s birthday falls one day later on 28 september (1929). “We re both librans and thus understand each other as persons, perfectly..” wrote Yash Chopra in his Foreward to Lata Geetkosh (vol VI) which was complied and edited by Snehashish Chatterji, a Lata devotee par excellence who has made it his life’s mission to bring out all the lyrics of Lata in various volumes of Lata Geetkosh and the above Vol VI is the first volume in the series which covers Lata’s songs from 1966 to 1970.. The first few pages of the book, which give the statistics of Lata songs during that period is in itself worth the price of the volume (Rs/-695/-). These statistics page tell us that Lata sang 549 songs in 233 movies from 1966-1970 which included 382 solos, 132 duets (with male singers) and 32 duets (with female singers) and three other songs.

Greetings and best wishes to all readers for the festival of Raksha Bandhan today.

This song is from the 1985 film ‘Ghar Dwaar’. The film is produced by Mohan ji Prasad and SK Jain, and is directed by Kalptaru. The star cast of this film is impressive and includes Shriram Lagoo, Tanuja, Sachin, Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Kadar Khan, Ashok Saraf, Ashalata etc. The music for this film is composed by Chitragupt. Checking through the available articles on Chitragupt ji, he passed away in 1991. This film could well be one of the last films that he composed for. I am unable to locate the name of the lyricist, and would request other knowledgeable readers to please add this information.

There are some songs that I heard in my younger days and liked them without having much clue about their details. with time, these songs were forgotten. I have become reacquainted with several of these songs again after a passage of three decades or so. And I am not the only one. Several readers of the same generation also offered similar remarks about these songs.

Most of the ghazals we grew up listening to often had heavy duty high sounding words in them whose meanings few people understood. And people not understanding the words would not admit to it either, fearing that he would fall in the estimation of fellow ghazal lovers with such a confession.

“Arth” was an art movie or parallel movie as low budget movies were described as in those days. Apart from the realistic story line which were supposedly based on the life of Mahesh Bhatt, the movie had some nice ghazals. It was one movie that helped popularise ghazals which was a welcome development considering that the other option in Bollywood filmy music those days used to be “disco” songs.
