Blog Day :

4083 Post No. : 15223

The date today 22 september 2019. It is a sunday.

Ten years ago, this date (22 september 2009) was a working day. I was in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Despite that day being a working day, I had covered as many as eight songs on that day. Posting six or more songs in a day used to be no big deal for me.

Here are the details of the eight songs that were covered on 22 september 2009.

Song (Movie title) Year Posting time Remarks
Aandhiyaan gham ki yoon chalin (Zeenat) 1945 1:29 All Songs covered on the blog
Wo marne se nahin darte (Shama Parwaana) 1954 2:19 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaye chaand ne aansoo (Lagan) 1955 5:00 TWO/out of Eight songs covered
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye (Hamdard) 1953 5:38 All Songs covered on the blog
Mujh ko tum jo mil gaye (Detective) 1958 7:10 Seven/out of Eight songs covered
Idhar to haath la pyaare (Aakhri Daao) 1958 7:59 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaron se poochho (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) 1960 8:11 Five/out of Nine songs covered
Dharti 1970 8:34 All Songs covered on the blog

As can be noticed, I was awake till 2:19 AM after midnight and I had already posted two songs for the day. They I went back to sleep and woke up before 5 AM. Then I posted six more songs. The eights and final song for the day was posted at 8:24 AM !

Those were the days when I could post eight songs in a day by early morning ! What productivity ! 🙂

I hardly slept those days and that did not even affect my health. My wife, whenever she would join me would make adverse comments about my tendency to sleep less. Her persistent nagging may have finally borne fruit because these days I neither keep awake that late nor do I wake up so early. And I no longer post that many songs in a day. I actually wonder now how I was that motivated one decade ago.

By contrast from ten years ago, today (22 september 2019)I have so far posted just one post.

Here is the second song from the day, when it is already evening. This song is part of the blog ten year challenge. As can be seen from the table above, four out of eight movies have been YIPPEED by now. So only the remaining movies can be taken up for this ten year challenge.

The song taken up for this challenge is from “Lagan”(1955). This movie was produced by directed by O P Dutta for O P Films, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Om Prakash, Shamlal, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pt Iqbal, Shivrj, Uma Dutt, Parshuram, Kanwar Kesho etc , with guest appearance by David.

The song under discussion is the third song out of eight songs that this movie has.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricisr. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scparwala.

“Kavi”(1954) was directed by Debki Bose for sunrise Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Bharat Bhushan, Geeta Bali, Nalini Jaywant, Chandrashekhar, B M Vyas, Jankidas, Om Prakash etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Four songs have been discussed in the blog in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Kavi”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of the song is available. Talat Mehmood was the main male playback singer in the movie whereas Bharat Bhushan was the lead actor of the movie. So it can be guessed that the song was picturised on Bharat Bhushan. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Teri ik ik ada jhoothhi (Kavita)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

teri ik ik adaa jhoothi
wafaa jhoothi hayaa jhoothi
chalegi ae haseenaa kab talaq
aakhir hawaa jhoothi

maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai
tujh mein khushbu dhoondh rahi hai
tujh mein khushbu dhoondh rahi hai
ye duniyaa ki bhool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai

tujhe dekh ke laakh bujhaa le
pyaas koi ankhiyan ki ee
tujhe dekh ke laakh bujhaa le
pyaas koi ankhiyan ki
binaa baas kaa phool banegaa
kyaa shobhaa bagiyan ki
daal kaa phool chadhe mandir mein
daal kaa phool chadhe mandir mein
tu raste ki dhool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai

binaa jyot kaa deepak hai tu
binaa tel ki baati ee
binaa jyot kaa deepak hai tu
binaa tel ki baati
jab tan ujlaa aur man kaalaa
phir kaahe itraati
shabnam khud ko saagar samjhe
shabnam khud ko saagar samjhe
ye shabnam ki bhool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai
maan kare kyaa rang roop kaa
tu kaaghaz kaa phool hai

hullo to all in Atuldom

We have all heard “Gore gore, o baanke chhore, kabhi meri gali aaya karo, gori gori, o banke chhori, chaahe roz bulaaya karo”. Now that song from “Samadhi” was filmed on two actresses one of whom –Kuldeep Kaur- was dressed in male attire. That was in 1950. There have been numerous occasions where a lady does a stage song dressed as a man or vice versa. In such cases the man dressed as a lady sings in a female voice –as Amir Khan had done in a song in the 90s. And Kishore Kumar before him in “Dilli Ka Thug” (but that was a genre in itself) But always as a rule we seem to have females who are dressed as males sing in female voice as was the case in the song from “Naya Daur” “Reshmi salwar kurta jaali ka roop saha nahin jaaye nakhrewaali ka”; or the one from “Kismet” “Kajra Mohabbatwala akhiyon mein aisa dala”. We have had one instance (if my knowledge is right) where the male is dressed in both genders and sings in the voice of Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. I am talking of a Mehmood song (in league with the Kishore Kumar song in terms of artist’s caliber. ??). But today I discovered a song which has the actress dressed as both male and female singing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Now this is a first encounter for me. I had seen this song ages ago, that is before my association with ASAD; which means that those days I used to listen and enjoy the songs without bothering about who sang who wrote or whose music! Etc. So, here is my heartfelt thank you to ASAD for making me aware of the songs I listen to ??

The song which I am talking of is from the 1953 romantic comedy “Ladki”. It had Vyjayantimala playing a tomboy, dancer (what else to expect from a movie with her in the cast), a sportswoman etc. She has Anjali Devi for a friend and Kishore Kumar as her male lead. There is Bharat Bhushan for Anjali Devi. This movie was made in Tamil as “Penn” and Telugu as “Sangam”. All three movies had Anjali Devi and Vyjayantimala as the constant factors with Gemini Ganeshan and N.T.Rama Rao (respectively) essaying the role played by Bharat Bhushan in Hindi. Similarly, in the south Indian versions, S. Balachander played the character that Kishore Kumar played in Hindi. The movie was directed by M.V.Raman and produced by AVM. Rajinder Kishan was the lyricist. The music director for this song was C Ramachandra.

We are having this song picturised on a seventeen year old Vyjayantimala on the occasion of her 79th birthday. Happy birthday to Vyjayantimala.

On August 2015, I had discovered a song “todke duniya ki deewar” which I had proposed to send to Atulji to celebrate the beautiful Vyjayanthimala’s birthday. The above post was written for that song. I don’t remember if I had sent it. And I am not going to search my outbox to see if I have sent or not. But before I sat to update the post when I checked ‘songs posted list’, I found that the song was posted in April 2018. But anyways my thoughts about that song remain unchanged.

I also saw that there are 15 songs in the movie out which 7 are posted that still means a few more possible Vyjayathimala dance songs are possible. As the saying goes- ‘a lot of water has flown down the river Ganges’ in the interim period. I missed an opportunity to see her live-performance in 2015 when my Peevesie said she could arrange passes, if I say-so, to a show in Bangalore where Vyjayanthimala was scheduled to perform. There are videos on YouTube that show her dance and grace even at 80 in some performance in Chennai. Hats off to the lady for her zeal and devotion to dance even at this age. May it continue in that manner for as long as she wishes.

Today’s song is a stage song sung by Lata Mangeshkar for a song written by Rajinder Krishan and composed by C. Ramchandra. We have our dear birthday girl occupying the stage as Kalidas, Tansen, a rishi who is writing the “vedas”, a Manipuri dancer, and the finale is Bharatnatyam (how could she miss out performing this). In fact the last three minutes of the song is devoted to her dance and it is a feast for the eyes, much like the last part of the “Jewel Thief” dance.

Happy Birthday to Vyjayanthimalaji.

Ed note-This song is followed seamlessly by a Tarana song which deserves to be treated as a separate song and it has been covered as such in the past.


Song-Mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai(Ladki)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

duniya mein aisi dharti aisa gagan nahin hai
duniya mein aisi dharti aisa gagan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

kabhi kalidas jaise kabhi tansen jaise
kabhi tansen jaise
mujhe naaz hai watan par

Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

As I have said in my post last year, the first Sunday of August is celebrated in many parts of the world as Friendship day. All the proverbs or sayings connected with Friends and Friendship come rushing to the mind viz. “a friend in need is a friend indeed”; “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”; “every gift from your friend is a wish for your happiness”; “a friends’ eye is like a good mirror”; etc.

At the same time I can recollect numerous songs from Bollywood connected with friendship and friends like “doston se pyaar kiya dushmanon se badle liya” (which subsequently Usha Uthup used to sing as “doston se pyaar kiya dushmano se bahut pyaar kiya” in all her concerts); “ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai”; and the most popular of them all- “ye dosti hum nahin todenge”.

It is really fortunate to have friends on whom one can rely. It is an experience where in, one can just pick up the phone and begin talking as if there was no break in the one-to-one interaction, or any lapse of time in between one meeting or chat and another. And I must say I experienced it. So much so, that around the beginning of June a few friends of mine from my college days decided to meet up at the place of one amongst us and spend a few days together.

Much like the gangout that I had with my blog friends in April end. That gangout was decided at short notice, even the venue changed from Guruji’s place to Kamathji’s place as Guruji had to urgently rush out of Mumbai. It was a hangout that fell in place as Sudhirji intimated that he will be in Mumbai at that time with Bakshishji for company, for almost a week. And I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of meeting the two of them, and made it aware that I will have only a few hours at my disposal before catching my return bus to Bangalore. And the hangout happened with Bharatji, Sudhirji, Bakshishji and Nitinji.

We had a very gracious and efficient host in Kamathji and his family. I simply loved the attention they gave us. Nitinji and Bharatji had already arrived when I reached the venue and then the bell rang. We all expected it to be the Dilliwales but it turned to be our ever-smiling IN-HOUSE ENCYCLOPAEDIA. That was the best surprise that could have been sprung on the gang as we were without information about his location. And the sweet/ cute person that he is, he decided to meet us as soon as he landed in Mumbai – just that morning. Then the Dilliwales walked in and we had quorum so to speak. We managed to spend a joyful time where Sudhirji and Bakshishji spoke of their time well-spent over the last two days doing what we all enjoy- listening to music.

So, when birds of the same feather flock together there is a whole lot of Music, Masti And Magic. (this last 3 Ms is the slogan of one of the many music channels on satellite television). Like it happened when I met my gang of college friends in the heart of summer and the country reeling under temperatures of 40-49 degrees Celsius. But that didn’t stop us from getting out into the sun and seeing a part of the country which we had never visited. And when it got too hot, we just whiled away the time in the comfort of the air-conditioned room, talking of old times and catching up on 30 years of gossip, with platefuls of snacks and mugs full of tea/ coffee. Yes, I had met a particular friend after that many years but we never felt that it was that long back. There was no awkwardness. That is what friends and friendship is about I suppose.

We have numerous Hindi film songs where gangs of girl friends pick up their cycles and go about singing like Saira Banu did in Padosan or Nutan did in Anaari and Chhaliya. Heroes are no different and we have seen Rajendra Kumar in Aas Ka Panchchi; Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan with their group of friends in Aap Ke Deewane etc. But our movie stars also sing along with their friends in open topped cars and jeeps and we end up having songs like “chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de”; “Manubhai motor chale pom pom pom”.

Now there is a similarity in the two open topped car songs that I have mentioned. Though the two songs are 24 years apart, and they show the heroes frolicking about they are singing in the same voice. That of Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar who would have been 90 today. Unbelievable!!! But then we are not fortunate to have him amongst us. We are fortunate that we have his songs- songs that tickle us into laughter, bring a smile to our lips, nudge us out of bad moods. And we are grateful to lord almighty for this singer, actor, producer, director and music composer who lived amongst us mortals. Whose friendship with Dev Anand, RD Burman, Rajesh Khanna etc is well known. His voice was instrumental in shaping the careers of many actors till Anil Kapoor, Sunjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav etc.

Today’s song is from the 1978 Surinder Kapoor produced, Sikandar Khanna directed “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which starred Rishi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee in lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Ranjeet, Helen, Paintal Mukri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo etc. Mithun Chakravarthy played one of Rishi Kapoor’s many friends in the movie. The songs were written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music composers.

I have seen this movie years ago but the story of the movie as given on IMDB.com is as follows (and is accurate I must say) —
Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, shall not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marries a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

From the above story it is evident that friends can make or break one’s life. There is a line in the other song that I have mentioned above

“chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de” which is how friendships should be

“baant kar jo khaaye us pe apne jaan-o-dil lutaa
jo bachaaye maal us ko jooti’on ka haar de”

Let your heart and your life be beholden
For a buddy who shares his food with you
But for him, who scrimps and keeps safe his things
Be sure to present him with a garland of shoes”

-this I have copy pasted from the post that Sudhirji had written for the song.

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

“Baabul Ki Galiyaan”(1972) was directed by Satya Dev Narang for Narang Films Combines, Bombay. This “social” movie had Hema Malini, Sanjay Khan, Sonia Sahni, Jagdeep, Shatrughan Sinha, David, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishna, Bipin Gupta, Jayshree T, Savita, Brahmchaari, Kuljeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Satyen Kappu, Tuntun, Hiralal, S N Bannerji, Bharm Bhardwaj, C S Dubey, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Birbal, Majnu, Abhimanyu Sharma, Pal Sharma, Tiwari, Ramesh Kumar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song (the most popular song from the movie) has already been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song appears 3904 days after the first song appeared in the blog on 3 november 2008.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a nagin dance song on Hema Malini. So Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladeshi wicketkeeper batsman has another Naagin dance song for his reference and necessary action. 🙂

The picturisation shows a snake charmer playing been and making a snake to sway (what people mistakenly believe to be snake dance), with Sanjay Khan looking on. I thought that the sapera is Bhagwan, but the star cast does not mention his name. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify him.


Song-Bairi chhod de mera raasta (Baabul Ki Galiyaan)(1972) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

thhar thhar kaanpe naazuk tan mora
it ut doley bebas mann mora
thhar thhar kaape naazuk tan mora
it ut doley bebas mann mora
main to chali thhi pi ki nagariya
rok li toone kaahe dagariya
jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

bedardi kyun peechhe pada hai mere
laaj ke maare painyaan padoon main tere
bedardi kyun peechhe pada hai mere
laaj ke maare painyaan padoon main tere
der bhayi to sang saheli
daal na den koi jhhoothi paheli
ab jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

I remember to have watched this movie during my childhood but I have forgotten most of it by now except its songs. I liked Bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham…ham hain Banarasi Babu very much then, perhaps because of its catchy tune. I had even memorized this song then and I remember it even today. That also happened to be the most popular song from this movie which finished at thirtieth number in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala list’ of 1973.

I also recall that other songs from this movie were also nice and they were frequently heard on radio or loud speakers. Like, ‘mere peecche ek ladki’ (multiple version song, posted on 03.12.2017), ‘aap yahaan se jaane ka kya loge’, ‘tauba tauba sharaab badnaam ho gayi’, ‘qamar meri lattoo’, and the today’s song ‘koi koi raat aisi hoti hai’.

I was under the impression that these songs must have been covered earlier so it came as a surprise to me when I found that they are yet to be posted on the blog.

For today’s post I have selected the song ‘koi koi raat aisi hoti hai’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar, which a nice hummable song. It is a regular on radio even today.
This song is lip synced by Rakhi on screen and we can see Dev Anand also present there, for whom Rakhi is singing the song but she is not aware that this Dev Anand is not the same that she is looking for. 🙂

Let us now enjoy this song …

Blog Day : 3975 Post No. : 15061

Today, 6th June, is the birth anniversary of Rajinder Krishan, one of the most prolific songwriters in Hindi cinema. As I looked up the date of birth, I find that he was born in the year 1919. So that makes today, the 100th birth anniversary for him.

A career that spans four decades in the industry saw a prolific output from his pen – close to 1700 songs, and story/screenplays and dialogues for many films. He made his debut in 1947 – as a songwriter for ‘Zanjeer’ (1947) and as a screenplay writer for ‘Janta’ (1947). He passed away in 1987, completing 40 years of active writing work in films, although films carrying songs written by him continued to be released till the early 1990s.

The 1955 film ‘Teerandaaz’ was produced and directed by HS Rawail, under the banner of Roshni Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors for this film is listed as Madhubala, Ajit, Kuldip Kaur, Jairaj, Gope, Sunder, Randhir, Yashodhara Katju, Ridku, Chandrashekhar, Bhagwan Sinha, Ravi, Pal Sharma, Krishna Varma, Kumud Tripathi, Ramlal, Madan Bhandari, Helen, Kammo, Mohna, and Chanchal.

The six songs in this film are all written by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by C Ramchandra. Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. One song of this film is already showcased here. This song is the second song of this film to take its place on our blog.

The song is a lilting melodious song, quite reminiscent of the golden era of music in Hindi films. I am hearing this song for the first time, as I prepare this post. What a lovely song, and what an enchanting rendition it is. The words of this song present an aspect of the philosophy of life – the search for a certain happiness in life that would be the true happiness. Some try to seek this solace in wine, but the poet says that happiness is not genuine – maybe the sip of the tipple from the eyes of the beloved would bring solace to the restless heart.

The more I listen to these words, the more this song becomes dear to me. I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends who may have seen this film, to please add more information about this film and the picturization of this song.

With this post, we also welcome back to the blog, our dear Nitin ji, after a long gap. We met at the luncheon gangout of Atulites at Sadanand ji’s place (in Bombay) on 3rd May. At that meeting, he had promised to become active once again. During the past four weeks or so, he has been resending lyrics of pending songs from the films of 1950s. From that, I have picked today’s lovely song, to celebrate the centenary celebration for Rajinder Krishan.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 10
—————————————————–
As story telling songs go, my personal favourite song is
this song from “Jab Jab Phool Khile”. Another such song which is readily coming to mind is this
this post written by me.

There are more such wonderful songs in this genre in Hindi films. While looking for a Mohammed Rafi song for the 15KSMC, I found this song, which is sort of storytelling and kids entertainment song. It’s a pure Solo song from the 50’s written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by C. Ramchandra for the film Insaaniyat(1955).

One more feature of this song is that it has Agha(senior) singing it for the benefit of kids watching describing the antics by a monkey. From the page containing Anniversay dates I find that the veteran character and comic actor Aghajan Baig was born on 21st March 1914 at Pune and died on 30/04/1992 also in Pune. So this year on 30/04/2019, it is Agha’s 27th death anniversary. There are many songs which Agha has been seen singing on screen. He had at least two solo Rafi songs in this film “ Insaaniyat” alone. So by this yardstick there are a few more songs picturized on him may still remain to be posted. One more song which is Agha is singing on screen is this one .
One more poignant Rafi solo highlighting the plight of the deprived and under preliviged. Another significant song on him is this this song .

Last week a younger work-mate and a friend, who is maybe born in the 80’s described a person (who looks like Agha actually) as ‘Shakaal’. I tried to explain that he is actually very similar to Agha looks-wise, but she did not know who was Agha. Even saying that he was a comic character actor from black & white movies and Jalal Agha’s father failed to ring a bell. So there came this memory from long back, of a TV ad featuring Agha. This was the advert for ‘Brittania Coconut Cookies”. Here Agha is seen wearing a sherwani walking down a garden of coconut trees swinging his walking stick. One coconut falls down, hits him on the head before hitting the ground . Agha picks up the coconut, which is broken and opens into two pieces of the shell with the biscuits inside. The catch phrase of the add was “ab brittania ne nariyal ko kurmurana sikhaya’. Of course Agha is seen eating the biscuit and enjoying it. I tried to find if the that ad clip is available on the net, but could not find it.

Anyway, this song was there with lyrics written down and a look at the Anniversary page made the writing of this post a must.

Clearly Mohammed Rafi sahab’s is enjoying singing this song. A cheerful and peppy no. I heard this only today that the thespian had said to someone ‘that “Mohammad Rafi” is the name given to him by his parents and he prefers to be called Mohammed Rafi instead of Rafi Sahab’.

Actually when I had stumbled upon this blog and thought of looking at the stats page, the first name I tried to find is Mohammed Rafi. No one can imagine my shock when the name was not there in the M list of singers. Thankfully I thought to look under R also as I was on the page and looking in the correct list of singers.

Some may say “ what is there in a name ?”, so I am certainly not in a position to insist that the blog also call him by his given full name.

So this is song No. 10 of the series, which will continue at least till 31st July.


Song-Raja beta bada ho ke jaayega school (Insaaniyat)(1955) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Rajendra Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

Raja beta badaa ho ke
Jaayegaa school
O Raja beta badaa ho ke
Jaayegaa school
Beta jaayegaa school
karegaa padhaayi ya likhaayi
Mein na bhool
Haan likhaayi mein na bhool

Ye baat rahe yaad
Banegaa ustaad
Waah re ustaad beta
Waah waah re ustaad

Baitthe baitthe ladkon pe
Ra’ub jamaayegaa

Hogaa jo shareer
Uss ke baint lagaayegaa
Ji baint lagaayegaa
Ji baint lagaayegaa
Phir karegaa raja shaadi
Khush hongi Amma daadi
Dulhan hogi tez mizaaj
Karegi iss par poora raaj
Chulha phunkwaayegi
Roti bhi pakwaayegi
Bachcha bhi khilwaayegi
Han haan
Sab kuchh karwaayegi
Samjhe naa

Masaala piswaayegi
Arey o lala
Ragad masaala
De ragdaa
De ragdaa
Mol liyaa thhaa
Kaahe beta
Shaadi ka ye jhagdaa

Dekho dekho
O dekho dekho
Bajaaye shehnaayi
Bajaaye shehnaayi
Hamaare lalnaa
Haan hamaare lalnaa

Dedication 🙂

This article is dedicated to ‘males’ who are good at cooking, are good chefs (the professionals) 🙂 , and the non-professionals who can cook well for themselves (for their wives (sometimes) (?), and for their family members and/or friends 🙂 as and when required. 🙂
Also I would like to express my gratitude to all females too who cook food for their family members and do all the hard work to ensure the family members get to ‘eat’ and are’ happy’. 🙂

***
I salute to all of them and wish I could also try and be like them and learn cooking. :).

I hope from the above statements nobody gets confused and misunderstands me if I am going to write about ‘cooking’ only and how it is going to be getting connected with a song, as, after all, this is a blog to present songs. 🙂

Yes, we are definitely going to enjoy a song which in my childhood was frequently heard on radio and so I was longing to share it here …

***
I was thinking about writing on this subject for almost two to three years. This kept getting delayed for one reason or the other…
Also this subject came to my mind because I am not good at cooking and had always found it as ‘boring’ or ‘burdensome’.

***

When I was about twenty I had to leave home and parents for my job and this was the first time that I was going to be staying alone without family members and so I would be without home cooked food by Mother who normally cooked for all of us at home. It was the first time for me when I faced this situation of having to cook food for myself.

My mother was also a working woman, so I remember that sometimes we three brothers used to assist her in some small things like sometimes getting coal for the ‘sigri’ and arranging it till it got ignited and hot enough to cook food. Sometimes we used to collect wood for burning. Those were the days and my childhood was like that, until cooking gas come to our home finally may be in 1985-86 I think.
But, I must also mention here that my Father was good at cooking some special dishes but it depended on his mood- viz on some special occasion or when the situation so0 demanded :).

I had to leave my parents as I took up a job and started to live with my other bachelor colleagues and so the ‘cooking’ phase of my life began for me. My colleagues wondered how come I was so ignorant of this matter and why I had never been to a ‘hostel’. To my sensitive soul, it appeared as if I was being held guilty of a ‘big crime’ or ‘big sin’. 🙂

Slowly they took pity on me and started teaching me the basics of coolikng viz chopping of vegetables starting with ONIONS first, which was enough to bring ‘tears to my eyes’. 🙂

When we used to get late from work and cooking at home was not possible we had to eat in Hotels and that resulted in ‘food poisoning’ and ‘diarrhoea’ on several occasions.

We used to have this ‘rice thali’ in ‘Madras Hotel’ at Kota where I was a regular monthly member. I ate there for almost 6/7 years till I get married 🙂

Before marriage I had already learnt to cook a few dishes well and also ‘cleaning’ of utensils (even now I can do this work whenever my wife wants me to her her in cooking. :). I consider cleaning and washing easier than cooking.

Nevertheless I was very good at and keep improving in one area, viz making good ‘tea’ (‘kadak chaai’).

During those ‘bachelor days’ in the morning after waking up the first thing I would look for was ‘ek cup garam chaai’. In cse I was unable to get it for reasons such as someone forgetting to buy the necessary stock of provisions to make tea, then that would spoil my morning.

On one such instance when I wanted to have a ‘cup of tea’ but found the ‘tea powder’ (tea leaves) was out of stock!!
I think I left office a little earlier that day , determined to buy the grocery first so I bought Tea powder – one kg :). My colleageus found it amusing when they knew this reason for my leaving early in the morning. 🙂

During my stay at Kota,I often had to change accomodation as my colleagues would get transferred to other sites. I had developed a group of friends who use to cook occasionally. I learnt to cook ‘mixed Punjabi daal’ from them and I used to give the ‘daal’ a good ‘chhonka’. I also learnt the chemistry of ‘rice & water’ and there were some ‘thumb rules’ that our neighbours staying there taught to us.
One of my friend from Indore was expert in making perfect ‘round chapaatis’ and we were very happy for that, his only condition was he would eat rice daily since he was habitual of that because of his stay in interior Andhra Pradesh for some time.

This cycle of ‘cooking’ for self, or eating out and risking health, and hiring a maid to cook, later on sharing cooking activities with friend, again going back and joining hotels on monthly basis to eat ‘rice plate’ (which normally in Maharashtra means having chapati, rice, dal, sabzi etc etc) continued for five-six years till I got married.

After my marriage sometimes I had cooked ‘mixed Punjabi daal’ for my wife and this remains my favourite.

As years passed I again got disconnected from the ‘cooking habits’ and was only restricted to making Tea, since I used to have two three cups Tea in the morning and sometimes a cup in the evening too after coming back from work to home.
Later on in the morning we agreed that the first ‘tea’ would be served by my wife, the second by me and the third turn – if required – would again be by her with breakfast. 🙂

Other than this the routine continues where my wife has to do everything for all of us but now my daughters have also taken up helping their mother in cooking …

After getting married there were instances in the initial years when my wife was with my parents and I was at project sites and so she would stay with them for a few months because ‘bade bete ki shaadi ke baad garb mein bahu aayi hai to …’
After all she was the ‘badi bahu’ and since I had no sisters a new female member was welcomed with warmth and love …

Well, life is an on-going process with only ‘change’ being the only constant and we never know what life has in store for us in future …

After a few years, it so happened that I visited Mumbai for our Atulites gang-out and had to stay with our ‘Maha Guru’ at his home in Mumbai. I was feeling very great and very fortunate, but then I was very very blessed when I got to eat food cooked by our ‘Maha Guru’ himself and I was really feeling ashamed on my laziness once again (because ‘apni galti par pachhtaana har insaan ka farz hai, lekin ye pachchhataap kuchh kshnon ke liye rehta hai 🙂 ) and I decided that when our ‘guru’ in his seventies can do ‘cooking’ why not me?, and so as usually I decided that I will cook myself for my wife … or at least start helping her in domestic works :).

The ‘gang out’ was in November’16 and it so happened that the next month on the first day of the next new year I and my wife travelled to Anand to see my daughters and while she will stay there with my daughters I will visit to Khandwa for my official works and return to Nagpur.
Now the real ‘test’ was after my reaching at Nagpur!!

As was usual for me, I ate out in nearby hotels for a couple of days and then I decided that ‘now I should take inspiration from our ‘Maha Guru’ and other ‘Gurujis’ and resolved to cook for myself-at least dinner in the evening.
It was decided that I would make a video call to my wife every evening after I finalised the menu and do the preliminary cleaning chopping of ingredients as required and keep ready the basic ingredients nearby …

And thus, started my ‘online learning for cooking’ course and every day I used to call my wife in the evening after initial preparations of the menu I wish to have that evening …
This time the ‘judaai’ was longer for almost a month a little over one month …

I learnt a great deal from her in this distance learning course.

Sometimes whenever she is not feeling well, I would first suggest her to order food from outside to have a change … but then she would come up with ‘kitna achchaa hota agar koi khaana banaake mujhe khilaaye’.

So, I would suggest to her that I would cook if she allowed me … she put us a great resistance the first time.

‘Rehne do, mujhe kuchh achchha khaane ka man kar rahaa hai, aap ke haath se wo swaad nation aayega’ 🙂 ‘main khud hi banaa deti hoon’, ‘Aap agar ho sake to wo saaf-safaai kar dena bas’ 🙂 …

Now, away from our country and home and ‘ghar ka khaana’, I am missing it all. Though we are getting ‘Indian Food’ to eat here (in our Camp) and some of us (from Bihar) are also good at cooking we get to eat ‘litti chokha’ ‘samosas’ ‘jalebi’ on special occasions, it can never be a substitute for the real thing. …

All those fond memories of having food at home since childhood keep haunting me nowadays and also I also remember how once in my childhood I refused to eat ‘aaloo ki bhaaji’ and was ‘scolded’ and ‘slapped’ by my father.

The movie …

‘Wafaa-1972’ was directed by Ramanna for R.R.Pictures, Bombay.

It had Sanjay, Rakhi, Hina Kausar, Nazeer Hussain, Joginder, Krishan Dhawan, Naaz, Sunder, Sulochana Chatterjee, Anwar Ali, Padma Khanna, Prem Kumar, Swaraj, Jayshree T, Kalavati, Deshpande, Shabnam, Puranik, Anand,

Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath, Bipin Gupta, Madan Puri, Sapru had friendly appearance in this movie.

Lyrics for all the five songs (as per HFGK Vol V) were written by Rajinder Krishan and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

With today’s song this movie ‘Wafaa-1972’ is making its debut on the blog.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.03.1972.

Almost forty seven years back …

(We already have ‘Wafa-1950’ movie already on the blog, this ‘Wafaa-1972’ joins its company)

There is another song from the 1973 movie ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ ‘daal roti khaao prabhu ke gun gaao’ which along with the today’s song had been in my memory since childhood, the reason may be that they were frequently played on ‘radio’ in those years…
I was also surprised that the song being presented today had not been posted on the blog so far.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song where in the first half the husband is trying to cook for his wife but as usual surrenders finally 

Today (13 february 2019) also happens to be the ‘World Radio Day’ and this one ‘from radio days’ will definitely bring back memories of those days for many. 🙂

Zaraa sa chaawal laaun
Arey waah
Zaraa sa doodh milaaun
Hi hi hi hi
Pheeki kheer khilaaoge
Shakkar na milaaoge

Arey tere ki
Fail ham ho gaye pehle sabak mein
Aur koi cheez bolo khaaoge ae
Jo bhi sajan tum khilaaoge
Haan haan
Jo bhi sajan tum khilaaoge

Ho ho o la la la laa
Ho ho o la la la laa
Ae he he
O ho ho
Aha ha
Dekh dekh pyaari
Soorat tumhaari
Bhookh to hamaari mit gayi bechaari
Dekh dekh pyaari
Soorat tumhaari
Bhookh to hamaari mit gayi ji bechaari
Hato chalo hato raaja
Ye hai rasoi
Aisi jagah karta hai pyaar bhalaa koi

Chhodo chulha chauka
Hai munna raaja bhookha
Balmaa anaadi
Khichdi khayaali
Kab tak kaho ji pakaaoge

Baahon mein jab tak naa aaoge
Baahon mein jab tak naa
Tak naa
Tak naa
Aaoge ae

आलू की भाजी
बैंगन का भरता
आलू की भाजी
बैंगन का भरता
बोलो जी बोलो क्या खाओगे ए
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे

मैदे की पूड़ी
आटे का फुल्का
बोलो जी बोलो क्या खाओगे ए
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे

श्रीमान रसोई पकाए ए
श्रीमती बैठ बैठ खाए ए
श्रीमान रसोई पकाए ए
श्रीमती बैठ बैठ खाए ए
कहो तो खीर पकाऊं
आहा हा हा
ज़रा सी आग जलाऊं
अच्छा
ज़रा सा चावल लाऊं
अरे वाह
ज़रा सा दूध मिलाऊं
ही ही ही
फीकी खीर खिलाओगे
शक्कर न मिलाओगे

अरे तेरे कि
फ़ैल हम हो गए पहले सबक में
और कोई चीज़ बोलो खाओगे ए
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे
हाँ हाँ
जो भी सजन तुम खिलाओगे

हो हो ओ ल ल ल ला
हो हो ओ ल ल ल ला
ए हे हे
ओ हो हो
आहा हा
देख देख प्यारी
सूरत तुम्हारी
भूख तो हमारी मिट गयी बेचारी
देख देख प्यारी
सूरत तुम्हारी
भूख तो हमारी मिट गयी बेचारी
हटो चलो हटो राजा
ये है रसोई
ऐसी जगह करता है प्यार भला कोई

छोडो चूल्हा चौका
है मुन्ना राजा भूखा
बलमा अनाड़ी
खिचड़ी खयाली
कब तक कहो जी पकाओगे

बाहों में जब तक ना आओगे
बाहों में जब तक ना …
तक ना …
तक ना …
आओगे ए

Here is the eighth and final song from “Do Sitaare”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

With this song, “Do Sitaare”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

When this year began, we were YIPPYing one movie every day and we maintained this new year resolution till end of march 2018. We had YIPPEED 92 movies in the first 92 days of this year before the enthusiasm seemingly wore off. We somehow kept on this exercise with gaps till april 2018. 111 movies were YIPPEED in the year till end of april 2018.

Ever since, the rate dropped off drastically. Today’s movie is only the tenth YIPPEED movie after April 2018 and the first YIPPEED movie for November 2018. It is the 1048th YIPPEED movie in the blog overall.

Nevertheless, it feels nice to be YIPPYing a movie again. And what a nice song to listen to for closing the account of “Do Sitaare”(1951). The song sounds like a quintessential “puraani film ka geet” that we so loved to listen to on radio till 1970s.

I came to know (from our whatsapp group messages) that today happens to be the birthday of our beloved Sudhir Jee. It is only yesterday that he had posted a message in the group which read-

Listening to 5 to 10 songs a day can improve memory, strengthen immune system, and reduce depression risk by 80 %.

We fully agree, and we in this blog are doing our bit to keep people healthy. 🙂 And our beloved Sudhir Jee, with his musical excavations, background researches and interesting writeups is keeping us in great and robust health.

I take this opportunity to wish him a very happy birthday and wish him many happy returns of the day. Have a great musical day when you get to listen to 5 to 10 songs, and may be even more. 🙂


Song-Idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya (Do Sitaare)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya

nazar se nazar ka hua saamna
nazar se nazar ka hua saamna
to dil ye pukaara mujhe thhaamna
to dil ye pukaara mujhe thhaamna
sambhaala to maine magar kho gaya
sambhaala to maine magar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya

meri unse yoonhi mulaaqaat thhi
meri unse yoonhi mulaaqaat thhi
kaho ji ye koi buri baat thhi
kaho ji ye koi buri baat thhi
ye dil ki khata hai agar kho gaya
ye dil ki khata hai agar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya
