I have no idea when it was for the first time that I heard this song under discussion. I may have listened to it for the first time on radio many years ago.

I have never watched this movie ‘Jaane Anjaane-1971’. The song that I associate this movie with is not this title song, but other better known songs viz. ‘teri neeli aankhon ke’ and later ‘chham chham baaje re payaliya’. I became familiar with these songs when when I got a compilation of songs recorded in 1987-98 that I labelled as ‘classical songs from Hindi movies’.

Today, the 30th of October 2016, is the death anniversary of Vinod Mehra, yesteryear actor.

When Vinod Mehra died in 1990 of a heart attack, at the young age of 45, it came as a shock to many, including myself. He had been a familiar figure in films for the previous two decades, with reasonable success. And at 45, still had plenty to look forward to in his career and life.

Today (16 october 2016) is the birthday of Hema Malini, MP from Mathura.

But we will not go into her political career here. That is not of any particular interest to this blog. What we are interested in here is music and the film industry – and that is what we will focus on.

Today 15th October 2016 is the 94th birth anniversary of Shankar Singh Raghuvanshi. We know him as Shankar of the music director team Shankar- Jaikishan of the 50s and 60s. Shankar Singh s/o Ram Singh (15 October 1922 – 26 April 1987) was a native of Telangana (formerly Andhra Pradesh and at the time of Shankar’s birth probably Nizam territory) and spent his early years in Hyderabad. During his formative years, Shankar played the tabla and learned the art formally from Baba Nasir Khan Sahib. For many years, Shankar studied as a disciple of the legendary composer Khwaja Khurshid Anwar, in whose orchestra he performed. Shankar started his career with a theater group, before shifting to Prithvi Theatre where he played tabla and performed some minor roles in plays. Shankar worked as assistant to the leading composer duo of Husnlal Bhagatram.

Though the decade of 1950s is the most well represented decade in the blog, still there are so many melodious songs of the 50s that are yet to be discussed on this Blog. Today’s song is also one such sweet Lata song which was quite popular during its time. It is a solo song Baghi Sipahi-1958, a costume film by V.P.Productions. It was produced by a person who had given us gems like Patanga-49, Sagai-51 and other such films as Aurat, Badal,Laadla,Parbat etc etc, which had become hits. His name is Bhagwandas Varma.

There was a time when we used to discuss songs on the occasion of anni9versaries of artists. That practice is no longer as common now a days as used to be the case. Things are slow in the blog at the moment, but one should not be surprised if we soon pick up pace once again. At this juncture my time is being taken up in other matters. Not that I have not spent time on the blog. I have spent good amount of time in background work, and the results of that may have escaped the attention of most. Some of the result of my work is available on the blog for those who may have noticed it (like for instance Sudhir Ji and Mr Sadanand Kamath, for instance). Then there are other background work whose results are not reflected yet in the blog, but they are there with me and they will enable me to go about futute posying of songs in a more systematic and streamlined manner.

There was some speculation among regulars about the inactivity in the blog today despite it being a sunday. Someone felt that it was the long weekend effect.

“Sanyasi” was a 1975 movie which had Manoj Kumar and Hema Malini in the lead. It had Sulochana Latkar playing mother to Manoj Kumar and Pran played Shanti Baba a true Sanyasi to Premnath’s Ishwar Baba who is a baba by day and Daku Mangal Singh at other times. The plot was pretty simple with the rich mother wanting to keep her son away from vices that his father had. She teaches him positive values Geeta etc and the son also dutifully refrains from all vices and in addition also becomes a sanyasi. Hema Malini played Champa alias Arti whose job is to break the sanyasi’s vow of celibacy and try and marry him. Added in the story is the case of Girdhari and Bhanwari played by Raj Mehra and Prem Chopra who are out to con the rich widow and walk away with her property. This synopsis I had read a long time ago in the various internet sites. I have never seen the movie but I had liked most of its songs specially “Sun bal brahmachari main hoon Kanyakumari” and “Karm kiye jaa phal ki chinta mat kar-e-insaan”.
