Blog Day : 3610 Post No. : 14400

When you are young, you take many of your gifts for granted. Only when you lose those gifts that you start mising them. For instance, I took my eyesight for granted for nearly fifth years. I had perfect 6/6 vision for much of my life, but now I cannot read without glasses.

To take another telling example, I was an indefatiguable runner in my younger days. I could run around for hours without running out of breath. But today I cannot even run ten metres, forget running 1500 metres in around five minutes that I was capable of during my younger days.

Forget comparing my present self with my past younger self of 35 years ago. When I compare the blog strike rate today with the blog strike rate of six years ago, I find a similar loss of agility. 🙂 During 2011 and 2012, we were clocking 100 songs every 16 days, and sometimes even faster. These days, we have become like a potbellied elderly person who can barely move. Our blog centuries these days are taking more than 30 days each. The previous century took exactly one month viz 31 days.

If one thought that we could not get any slower, then you need not look any further. This post is post number 14400 for the blog and it has taken 43 days ! I sincely hope that it is the last of such snail paced centuries and we would pick up some decent pace from now onwards.

This century post has taken almost an eternity to arrive and it will appear in the dying moments of the day (night), which means readers of the blog may not get much time to read it before the next post appears first thing in the morning.

This century post, like most of our century posts combines several landmarks, and some of these landmarks are “artificial” but real. Did I just use an oxymoron like say happily married ? 🙂

Let me count the special occasions that this song combines. This song is from a 1957 movie called “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This movie was directed by Jaswant jhaweri for Dinesh Films Bombay. This “historical” movie had Nirupa Roy, Jairaj, Ram singh, Al Nasir, Ramesh sinha, Sundar, Murad, Rajkumar, Shree Bhagwan, Ramlal, Sapru, Shyam Lal, Pandey, R S dubey, Devchand, Yashodhara Katju, Ratnamala, Heera, Helen, Veena. Guest artist-Minu Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had 12 songs in it and the song under discussion is the first song from the movie. In other words, “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957) makes its debut in the blog. It is no ordinary debut though. As many as 113 movies were released in 1957. 99 of these movies were represented in the blog so far. So this movie is the 100th movie of 1957 to find representation in the blog !

There is another even more impressive number coming up ! The decade of 1950s (from 1951 upto 1960) saw 1111 movies getting released. 999 of these movies have been covered in the blog so far. So, ladies and gentlemen, this movie happens to be the 1000th movie of 1950s to get showcased in the blog ! We now have just 111 more movies of 1950s left to be covered in the blog. Of course songs of many of these movies may not be available. But that is for the future.

For now, let us enjoy this lovely duet from “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and chorus. It is a dance song performed in a raj darbaar. I am unable to identify the actors performing the dance. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sanmukh Babu.

With this song, we now reach the landmark of 14400th song in the blog. We are just five weeks short of completing ten years of the blog which would be a REAL achievement for the blog. There would be nothing “artificial” in that massive landmark that will arrive soon.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement. I hope that the blog will pick up some real steam in the coming days and we will not only regain our glory days but hopefully exceed them as well.

Another request from Arvinder ji.  And another delightful song that I must thank him for introducing to me. I heard this song for the first time after Arvinder ji’s persistent requests finally made me pull this song out and listen to it. It was love at first hear 😉 (ah, the phrase being used again today). And yes, another theme being used again today is the ‘keep your hearts safe’ message. In an earlier post today, Atul ji has uploaded the Shamshad Begum song – “Meri Nazren Pockekmaar Sambhaalo Dil Ke Pocket Ko”. And in this song, the lady is announcing that

आई हूँ रंग ले के मैं बहार के
रखना काबू
दिल रखना काबू

The film is ‘Naag Padmini’ from 1957. This is a historical film, produced by Mulkhraj Bhakri under the banner of Golden Movies, Bombay and is directed by Lekhraj Bhakri. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Shakeela, Hiralal, Maruti, Tiwari, Niranjan Sharma, Kammo, Krishna Kumari, Kanchanmala, Tun Tun, Daljeet, Sadiq, amongst others.

It was a dark and stormy night.

OK, okay, I am just making it up.  It was not a dark and stormy night.  Delhi is well lighted in the nights these days, so it is hard to come by a dark night unless it is a power failure on a moonless night.  Plus being the month of November, and the onset of winters, no storms are likely.  Ah but how I wish I could start the story with this line. 😉

Let me narrate how I took this step of attempting a blog for ASAD. I had the good fortune of joining the Gang out at Bangalore recently, (7 November 2015). Having read the wonderful write ups of various contributors, I had formed pictures of the contributors mind, based on their efforts and their researches on the materials of the song/topic/artiste. So when I accepted the invitation from Raja , I was a little in awe of the people I was ikely to meet face to face or through (proposed) skype/or equivalent chat.

I have mentioned in the past that Hindi movie music is like an ocean and that some of gems in this ocean are buried deep and they can be brought up only by diving deep into it.

Here is another gem of a song from the 1964 movie Hameer Hatth. This is a semi classical composition, rendered so well by Manna Dey. The composoition is by Sanmukh Babu Upadhyaya, and the beautiful lyrics in chaste Hindi, are by Neelkanthh Tiwari. The words are just beautiful, and need a careful listen.
