For a soft and lovely and romantic expression, it probably does not get better than this delightful ghazal. The words, the music, and the rendition – all have come together to craft this wonderful expression of bashful love. Love, that wants to say many things, but remains un-speaking, when presented with the opportunity. The anxiety and hesitations tie the tongue, and the moments pass by without a word being said. Shakeel Sb has so beautifully painted the words around this emotion. Each couplet is a priceless gem. I am bowled over with how the words are knitted together.

hasraten aarzooen umangen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
un ko dekha to manzil samajh kar
ruk gaya karvaan un ke aage

The strongest image that remains in the mind is that of the film director Sinha Saab, a bedraggled man in tattered garments, with ruffled grey hair and white beard, a leathery skin on face lined with wrinkles that appeared much before time – a young person who aged too rapidly for his years. With help of a walking stick, he climbs down from the shadows of the scaffolding where he has perched himself, watching the action on the floor below – the same floor where once, not too long ago, he was the ringmaster, and everyone bowed to him. Not anymore. Today, he is a ‘has been’, who lost his touch of Midas, and the same world that once clamored to him, has quickly forgotten and relegated him, literally, to the garbage heap.

With difficulty, he negotiates the narrow ladders that lead down from the scaffolding to the studio floor. Once there, he shuffles to the chair, his chair, in the days of glory; the chair with the word ‘Director’ written across its back. He sits. And then he is immobile, never to get up again, never to wake up.

When the crowd of workers return after lunch, everyone is shocked to see this grimy old man, sitting motionless in the director’s chair. Everyone is known to him, but today no one recognizes him, now that he is gone. None, save one light-boy, who remembers and recognizes his earliest benefactor – Sinha Saab.

The power of these images and these sequences now have a cult following, not only in India but worldwide. Remembering Guru Dutt on his seventy seventh anniversary. (9th July)

Today’s song is from the film Gharana(1961), a movie made by the famous Gemini Studios, Madras. The producer/director was S S Vasan- called the ‘Cecil B Demil’ of India, after his epic trend setter film Chandralekha way back in 1948. It was from this film that Hindi films started being made in south. In the beginning, it was only remakes of successful and Hit south films. Once this formula proved to be profitable, remakes of hit South Indian films began to constitute almost 80% of the Hindi films being made in south.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘झ’
“झुका झुका के नज़र यूं उठाई जाती है”

jab bhi ye dil udaas hota hai
jaane kaun aas paas hota hai

These lines tickle the strands of the mind often, when in the moods of a tranquil nothingness – sometimes in the moments just as the self is drifting into sleep, or sometimes, on a journey in a relaxed coziness with nothing particular to do, or sometimes on lonely walks in the evenings. And the mind wonders, trying to put a face to a distant thought – “jaane kaun aas paas . . . hai”. That face is almost never distinct. Whose presence it is that I feel – the mind is yet to discern, and ascribe substance to the tenuous wisps that almost form the image, but then always fails to bring into a distinct focus. And the mind wanders, continues to seek – an unfinished image, trying to capture an elusive face, and a name that keeps bumping tantalizingly close to the edges of memory, yet always remains just a breath away from my grasp.

Haan ji, bahut dinon baad. . . after a gap of many days. I am reviving and adding one more gem of a song to the series on ’Songs To Tickle Your Memory’. And once again, it is the doing of Arvinder ji. Today morning I get a call from him he informs me that he has truckload full of items he deals in, to be delivered to me. Samajh to yahi aaya that he is trying to wring one more song from me. But yes, the story is same as before. His request has been sitting in my mailbox now for some weeks. And it continues to accumulate interest in terms of more email reminders.🙂
