Hullo Atuldom

“Tum Haseen Main Jawaan” produced and directed by Bhappie Soni, released in 1970. The movie had six songs of which three were written by Hasrat Jaipuri, two by Indivar and one by Rajinder Krishan with Shankar Jaikishan as music directors. The cast was headed by Hema Malini and Dharmendra with Helen, Anjali Kadam, Helen, Sulochana Latkar, Rajendranath, Dhumal, Anwar Hussain, Mohan Choti, Iftikhar and PRAN. The story screenplay etc was the handiwork of Sachin Bhowmick. I have seen this movie a long time ago on Television and this is the basic storyline-

Sunil (Dharam) is a merchant navy officer (if I remember right), and has had numerous affairs with a number of attractive young women. One day he meets with beautiful Anuradha (Hema), and falls in love with her. Anuradha too loves him, and she is introduced to his mom (Sulochana). Anuradha has another admirer in Ranjeet (Pran), who informs Sunil and his mom, that Anuradha is deceiving them, and is the mother of a baby boy. Sunil and his mother are shocked, and will have nothing to do with Anuradha. Then the child, in question, is kidnapped, and held for ransom. It is then Sunil comes to know the shocking truth behind the abduction, which will change his life forever.

The movie had other typical masalas in it – like Helen a dancer with a golden heart, a sobbing sister, a family missing their elder daughter etc.

The movie made its blog debut with this song. I heard that song after years today as I was writing this and felt the song reminded me of the song “mere paas aao nazar toh milao” from “Sunghursh” (I don’t mind if people say I am wrong). Atulji followed this up with song. I would like to make it clear here that Dharam is asking Hema’s help to look after the baby that he has found i.e. he wants her to be its Nanny. And let me also add, that it suits Hema’s purpose as she is looking for a safe haven for that child whom she is shielding from its uncle played by Pran.
The last song from this movie came with a post by Rajaji to wish Hema Malini on her 69th birthday.

The song with today’s post is something I love to watch for its cuteness. Hema Malini was supremely sweet, cute etc. in those days (none of which has lessened with age, mind you). On hearing it without the video one would expect Shammi Kapoor enacting it but we have a very handsome Dharam on-screen. And the “jhatakdaar” steps is the cutest part of the song IMHO.

And why are we having this song today ? To wish the He-man, Garam Dharam on his 84th birthday. Dharmendra who started his career in the early 60s is a huge Dilip Kumar fan. He has acted in close to 300 movies in all these years. He was nominated 4 for the best actor Filmfare award but won only the Life Time achievement award in 1997. He is a Padma Bhushan recipient and has been darling of the masses who have lapped up his pairing with Meena Kumari, Nutan, Sharmila Tagore, Asha Parekh and Mala Sinha etc, but nothing to match the pairing with Hema Malini. They did about 35 films together and were romantically paired in 31; of these 20 were hits and 15 flops.

Let us have a song of this super-hit jodi today and say (belatedly) “Happy Birthday Dharmendraji”

Hullo to Atuldom

Today we wish the smart handsome light-eyed actor, producer, director, screen writer and editor Rakesh Roshan on his 70th birthday with lots of health and happiness- discovered as I sat to write this that he is also a cancer conqueror. Very heart-warming to learn that.

We all know that he started at a rather young age in the film industry as an assistant to Mohan Kumar during the making of “Anjaana” due to the untimely death of his father – Roshanlal Nagrath; the music director of “Baawre Nain” fame “Roshan”. (I don’t intend to list Roshan’s albums here).

Rakesh Roshan had “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” as his first release in 1970. It was a supporting role where the most popular song of the movie “sama hai suhaana suhaana” was lip synced by Jalal Agha and Rakesh Roshan and Bharathi were only part of the group that shakes a leg to the song. This movie was followed by movies like “Seema”; “Ankhon Ankhon Mein”; “Paraya Dhan”; “Man Mandir” and a host of others where mostly he was either a supporting actor. There were movies where he was the lead but the stories were mostly heroine-centric as in “Khoobsurat”; “Kaamchor”; “Bahu Ki Awaz”; “Bahurani” etc. He has had successful movies with Rishi Kapoor beginning with “Khel Khel Mein” “Jhootha Kahin Ka”; “Aap Ke Deewane” and their friendship is such that Rishi did a guest appearance in Rakesh’s directorial debut “Khudgarz”. Similarly, his friendship with Sujit Kumar, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra and the pranks that they play on each other are some of the anecdotes that each of these actors don’t tire relating. Of course, he had his share of solo hero movies where the heroines were equally important – for example “Ek Kunwari Ek Kunwara” with Leena Chandavarkar, “Nafrat” with Yogita Bali; “Humari Bahu Alka” with Bindiya Goswami; “Shubh Kaamna” with Rati Agnihotri etc.

His pairing with Rekha gave us movies like “Khoobsurat” which was followed by “Neeyat”; “Daasi”; “Jeevan Dhara”; and when he turned director Rekha got the best movie of her life (my personal feeling) “Khoon Bhari Maang” which kind of resurrected Rekha’s career. She went on to even accept the role of Hrithik’s mother in Rakesh’s directorial “Koi Mil Gaya” and also played Hrithik’s grandmother in its sequel “Krrish”. It is quite well known that Rakesh Roshan likes to name all his films with titles that begin with K. He has tasted success with all the movies he has produced beginning with “Khudgarz” in 1987.

Today we have a song from one of his initial movie “Seema” (1971) which was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar and directed by Surendra Mohan and Bharathi (of South Indian movies) was his co-star. The movie also had Kabir Bedi and Simi Garewal in the cast. The most famous song of this movie “Jab bhi yeh dil udaas hota hai” is already on the blog along with two other songs.

Here is the fourth song of the movie with Rakesh Roshan trying to woo Bharathi in a manner, which in the current times and even earlier (I suppose) would amount to eve teasing. In most of the songs of this type we see the lady smiling and falling in love with ‘the tormentor’ but not in this song. The song also shows that Rakesh or Duggu, as he is addressed by his friends, was a decent dancer and didn’t indulge in stomping of the feet, or exhibiting two left feet etc. As I was seeing the video to note the lyrics there is a point in the song where he mimics a lady and I recollected that portion of “Aap Ke Deewane” where he comes dressed as a lady teacher for Tina Munim.

“Seema” had music by Shankar Jaikishan and the movie opens with a tribute to Jaikishanji. Today’s song is written by Verma Malik and it is sung by Kishore Kumar.

Once again Happy Birthday to Rakesh Roshan.

“Zindagi”(1964) was written produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini Productions, Madras. This movie had Raj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Vyjayanthimala, Helen, Mehmood, Prithviraj Chauhan, Jeevan, Dhumal, Jayant, Kanhaiyalal, Hiralal, Master Shahid, Leela Chitnis, Pushpavalli(Actress Rekha`s mother), Baby Farida & “Honey”, Mumtaz Begum, Moolchand, Nirupa Roy, Satyajeet etc in it.

The movie had 13 songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (30 august 2019) is the 96th birth anniversary of Shailendra (30 august 1923 -14 december 1966). Shailendra would have been 96 today. I know of at least one person senior to Shailendra in age who is still around. Sadly Shailendra left us at a tender age of 43.

In such a brief duration of 43 years, he had a 17 years long career as a lyricist in HFGK. His literary output during this period was enough to establish himself as an all time great lyricist in the annals of HFM.

Shailendra penned around 760 songs in HFM. This blog has as many as 676 of his songs. So only around 80 odd Shalendra songs are left to be covered in the blog.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Shailendra, here is a song from “Zindagi”(1964). This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised as a “god bharaai rasm” song. Picturisation shows a would be mother played by Vyjyanti Mala, surrounded by ladies viz. Leela Chitnis, Mumtaz Begum and others while Helen (who rather unusually for her is seen clad in a saari)lip syncs this song.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————————

Though I have been discussing Hindi movie songs in the blog for more than a decade now, it is not as if I had watched too many movies during my “formative” years. I recall having watched a few movies in early 1970s, with the last of these movies being “Zindagi Zindagi” (1972) in 1972.

My movie watching spree began in 1978 (after six years) when I joined college and got “freedom” that I as a college goer was “supposed” to enjoy. 🙂 And I fully misused my freedom, by watching movies when I should have been attending my classes.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched not just the current movies but also those movies which had come between 1972 and 1978 which I had missed during their time. This included all Amitabh Bachchan hit movies like “Zanjeer” (1973), “Deewaar”(1975), “Sholay” (1975) etc.

When my pre teen movie watching ended in 1972, I had watched very few movies. I could only identify Rajesh Khanna, Tanuja, Mumtaz etc thanks to Rajesh Khanna movies like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) that I got to watch at that time. Thanks to watching “Haqeeqat”(1964) is an open field show at night in my railway colony, I became familiar with Dharmendra. In another such free show, I watched “Dil Diya Dard Liya”(1966) and that is how I became familiar with Dilip Kumar.

That was about it. I had not watched any movies of Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar, Saira Bano etc till 1978 !

During my “catching up with lost time” movie watching spree, I watched “Resham Ki Dori”(1974) some time in 1978 or 1979. This movie, as I know now thanks to HFGK, was directed by Atmaram for Modern Pictures Bombay. The movie had Saira Bano, Dharmendra, Kumud Chhugaani, Rajendranath, Sujit Kumar, Sajja, Ramesh Deo, Rajan Haksar, Jayshree T, Kundan, Meena T, Bhagwan, Shabnam, Sapru, Shivraj, Jankidas, Keshav Rana, Sundar, Master Sachin, Ramlal, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Radheshyam, Chaand Usmani (Special appearance), Kanwar Ajit, Suresh, Murad etc in it.

Except Dharmendra, almost every other actor in the movie was “new” and unfamiliar for me. Many of them continued to remain unfamiliar to me for decades. For instance, I was not aware which actress played the sister of Dharmendra in this movie. Somehow I had erroneously assumed that she was called Urmila Bhatt (I find , to my surprise that she is not even there in the cast). Only now, when I checked up the starcast, I realised that the sister had to be Kumud Chhugaani.

The movie had six songs in it. The most popular song of the song was the raakhi song and it was posted exactly ten years ago. So that means that this day ten year ago was the festival of Rakshabandhan. And as was the practice in the blog, Rakhi related songs were discussed on the blog on that day (5 august 2009).

Song Movie Remarks
Behna ne bhai ki kalaayi pe pyaar baandha hai (Reshan ki dori)(1974) 2 songs covered out of 6
dil se dil ki dor baadhi chori chori (Chaayaa)(1961) YIPPEED (all 7 songs covered)
Aaya tumpe dil aaya (Do Ustaad)(1959) YIPPEED (all 8 songs covered)
Soona hai mere dil ka jahaan (Devtaa)(1956) 4 songs covered out of 8
Dil tootnaa thha dil toot gaya (Dilruba)(1950) YIPPEED (all 11 songs covered)
Marne ki duaayen kyun maangoon (Ziddi)(1948) YIPPEED (all 9 songs covered)

As can be seen, six songs from six movies were covered on 5 august 2009. Four out of these six movies have been YIPPEED by now.

Today, we take up one of the unYIPPEED movies, namely “Reshan ki dori”(1974).

The two songs of this movie that have been covered till now are

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Bahnaa ne bhaayi ki kalaayi se pyaar baandhaa hai 1729 5-Aug-09
2 Chamka paseena ban ke nageena 9116 8-Dec-13

Today, as part of blog ten year challenge (2009-2019), here is a song from “Resham Ki Dori”(1974). This song is a lovers’s song. It is sung by Rafi, with a few sweet nothings uttered by Saira Bano (I guess). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Dharmendra and Saira Bano. It was for the first time in this movie that I had seen Saira Bano in a movie. I had not seen her in “Padosan”(1968) because my elders did not take me to watch this (or other well known movies) of those days.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by avinash Scrapwala.

Here is the third song from the movie to appear in the blog. this song is sung by Lata. Singhaar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Sulakshana Pandit and Vinod Khanna.

According to a comment in youtube, Singhaar was none other than Sharda, the favurite singer of Shankar. I have assumed that this information is correct.I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Okay, okay, just before you sit up and ask again – “ये क्या हो रहा है”, a quick reminder that we are into this series of repeat songs. This is the third episode today.

There are well known, as well as obscure, instances existing in which the reused songs appear in the list of the songs of the latter film. The reuse listing of the song can appear as it is – a few examples being,

  • “Gori Zulm Karey Zulf Ka Bikhar Jaana” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961) and the film ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’, an unreleased film from 1960s.
  • The four songs of the film ‘Ram Rajya’ of 1943 are reused in the film ‘Ramayan’ of 1954
    “Beena Madhur-Madhur Kachhu Bol…”
    “Ajab Vidhi Ka lekh Kisi Se Padha Nahi Jaaye…”
    “Jhoole Mein Jhool Laal, Jhool Tu Jhool…”
    “Tyagmayi Tu Gayi, Teri Amar Bhaawna…”
    Note: The music director for both films is same – Shankar Rao Vyas; and the lyricist of these four songs is also the same – Ramesh Gupta.
  • “Beeti Jaat Barkha Ritu Saajan Nahin Aaye” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Muraad’ (1939) and the film ‘Dharam Bandhan’ (1940).
  • Four songs of an unreleased film ‘Parda’ from late 1940s are reused in the film ‘Achhaa ji’ of 1950
    ‘Taqraar Ko Badal Do Pyaar Mein, Na Karo Chhed Bekaar Mein…’
    ‘Bhool Hai Kisi Ko Apnana, Vichaaron Mein Basana…’
    ‘Kisi Ke Bholepan Ne… Mere Mann Ko Kheencha…’
    ‘Bhar Jaaye Aasmaan To Aahon Ki Kya Khata…’
    Note: The lyricist (Indiwar) and music director (Shyam Babu Pathak) are the same. The film director (SH Thirani) is also the same.
  • Six songs of the 1957 film ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’ have been reused in the 1969 film ‘Hanuman Chalisa’.
  • Strange occurrence – two films of the same year, 1958 – ‘Rifle Girl’ and ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ share the song – “Bheegi Hawa Mausam Jawaan, Masti Mein Dooba Saara Jahaan…”.
  • Rare occurrence, the same song is used in three films. The song is “Bhiksha De De Maiya Pingla, Jogi Khada Hai Dwaar…”. The films are ‘Bharthari’ (1944), ‘Raajyogi Bharthari’ (1954), and ‘Gopichand Bharthari’ (1965). Lyricist identified for these songs is Pandit Indra.
  • The song “Bolo Jaywantrao Ek Naam Prem Bhara. . .” appears in ‘Mera Imaan’ (1934) and ‘Swadesh Dewa’ (1946).
  • Interesting re-use – the song “Phool Chun Le Mere Baalam Ki Jaane Kab Daal Jhuke” appears in ‘Naubahaar’ of 1952 and then again in ‘Firdaus’ of 1953. Artist combination is the same – Sahir, Roshan, Lata.
  • Another one – “Baat Chalat Nai Chunari Rang Daali” – appears in film ‘Ladki’ of 1953 and then again in ‘Rani Roopmati’ of 1959.

Then there are films with the same list of songs.

  • ‘Satyanarayan’ of 1948 and ‘Bhikhaari’ of 1949
  • ‘Sushila’ of 1966 and ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ of 1977
  • ‘Amar Kahaani’ of 1949 and ‘Kanchan’ of 1955
  • ‘Sipaahi’ of 1941 and ‘Jangi Jawaani’ of 1943
  • ‘Suhaana Geet’ of 1941 and ‘Toote Dil’ of 1947
  • ‘Ram Bhakti’ of 1958 and ‘Bhakt Raaj’ of 1950
  • ‘Paanch Dushman’ of 1973 and ‘Daulat Ke Dushman’ of 1987

Although not specifically confirmed, in most cases, the above list of film pairs with all songs the same, the situation is that the latter film is a somewhat modified, re-certified and re-released version of the earlier film.

The above sampling is in no way exhaustive. More such instances may be discovered by a more meticulous review of the song lists in Geet Kosh.

But then, this observation has also to be annotated by saying that there are exceptions. There are many known cases where the repeat songs do not appear in the official list of songs of the film. The song may have been used as is without any modifications. The song may be used as an abridged version i.e. the stanzas used in repeat form are less than the original version. Or even when the song may be used quite differently.

These repeat instances of songs do not appear in the list of songs of the latter film. This is confirmed by a quick review of the Geet Kosh listings, which are primarily based on the information from the film booklets, and/or information printed on the gramophone records – 78 rpm records or LPs/EPs. Casual reuse, we may call it. Of course, ownership / copyright / permissions etc. are things that have to be taken care of. But it is always fun to be watching a film (especially when watching for the first time), and one is suddenly confronted with an unexpected song. The song already has a life and existence of its own. And it has its own popularity and following. All of a sudden out of the blue, the song will make a surprise appearance in another film, in another time. And one is simply – wow, एसा भी होता है – such things happen too.

The first song in this series – “Aa Ja Re Pardesi. . .” belongs to this category. As does this fun song that I bring to your notice today. An iconic song – a very typical and very strongly a Mehmood song, from the earlier film ‘Gumnaam’ from 1965, makes an unexpected and surprise appearance in the 1968 film ‘Brahmchaari’. This time around, the song is performed by the Junior incarnation of Mehmood, and he has done a superlative job of presenting this song. This song does not appear in the list of songs of the film ‘Brahmchaari’, and hence, when it appears in the film, the mind takes a double take – okay wow, this song, here.

The situation can be labeled as a ‘male-child item song’ 🙂 . It is just there, does not really add to the storyline content of the film. The children of Shammi Kapoor’s private orphanage are together, along with Mohan Choti, the handy man around the house, and Rajshri, who has descended on to this ‘family’ as a distraught outsider with no place to go. The song is heard on a gramophone player, on which the 78 rpm record is playing.

As I said earlier, Junior Mehmood has done a remarkable job performing this song, at that age. Born in 1956, he was all of 12 years old when he performed this song. A little short in height for his age, this performance is really lovable.

This video clip contains two stanzas, one less from the original three. However, my hunch is that all three were initially included when ‘Brahmchaari’ was released. In this video clip also, as the action moves from the first to the second stanza, there is slight jump in the visual, indicating there might have been a cut made – and the middle stanza was deleted later, for whatever reason.

Avinash ji has been posting a mini series on Junior Mehmood performances in Hindi films, so I will skip getting into more details about this fun child artist. Somehow the natural transformation, as these child artists move from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, does not seem to happen. The success of what their performance is, and the kudos it has drawn, continues to overshadow this required transformation as one grows in years. Very few examples are where an artist of proven merit in child roles has also made a successful career once having grown up. But that discussion is maybe another article, or another series.

Meanwhile, enjoy this really likeable performance, which I am sure will prompt you to go and take a look at the original ‘Gumnaam’ song also. I myself sure did.

Song – Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain  (Brahmchaari) (1968) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mehmood, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

“Balidaan”(1971) was produced by Arun Verma and directed by Ravi Tandon. This movie had Manoj Kumar, Saira Banu, Dev Kumar, Anwar Hussan, Bindu, Manmohan etc in it.

This obscure movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog. That one song was discussed nine years ago, viz on 22 august 2010 by Raja.

I was not aware of the movie, but it turned out that Ava, our knowldegeable regular was not only aware of the movie, she also pointed out that Ravi Tandon (father of Raveena Tandon) made his debut as a director with this movie.

Now, nine years later, here is the second song from “Balidaan”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is a dance song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle, with a few lines by Mahendra Kapoor. I am unable to tell who is the female dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. She vaguely resembles Bindu, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. Manoj Kumar lip syncs in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in the picturisation of this dance song. There are many others in the picturisation. I can identify Manmohan among them.

Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

I am unable to get a couple of worrds right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Haay haay re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui(Balidaan)(1971) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

haaye haaye
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
mangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

pukaarte hain mujhko ab jawaan chhokre
kahte hain aao paas mere jaan chhokre
arre har shareef nazar beimaan ho gayi
jawaan hoke main to pareshaan ho gayi
ho deewane chanda haaye deewaane chanda
arre thhaam meri bainya mera aur nahin koi
haaye re daiyya moyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

koi meri kalaai mein kangana fansa gaya
ungli mein pyar se koi chhalla chadha gaya
koi to meri baahon se aake lipat gaya
zulfon ko chhed chhed ke jhumka palat gaya
oye ?? dena haay
?? dena
main tere gale lag lag baar baar royi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

masti se bhari teri ye naadaan jawaani
sab jaante huye bhi ye anjaan jawaani
duniya ki nigaahon mein ye toofaan jawaani
ye teri zindagi ka imtihaan jawaani
o jawaan gori haaye
o jawaan gori
ari aaj tere sab kal tera nahin koi

haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haay
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 11
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 09
———————————————————
Another momentous occasion, another celebratory post and I was feeling lost. Where was the inspiration ? I saw the e-mailer for the celebration posts planned, just after I had prepared and submitted a post for another song(yet to be posted). This post took a whole three weeks to complete. I am actually not happy writing posts this way. I prefer to write the complete post, in one go. I may look at it 2-4 times and make certain corrections/improvements if required before submitting the post. If I am forced to take breaks while writing the posts, than it takes forever to complete the job.

Fresh instructions were issued to write a post and send it ASAP 🙂 . Incidentally, this acronym is three quarters same as ASAD. ASAD means “Lion” in Arabic and Urdu. I tried to find if this word has a meaning in any other language and found on Google that it means “shubha Mahurat” in Hindi. How appropriate is all this !

On receipt of the above ASAP request, I informed the kaptan’s that I can send a post only next week. They were given no other option but to agree 🙂 .

Than I suddenly remembered the song which had brought me to the blog back in 2010. Predictably it was an illusion of a Rafi song. Why I call it an illusion is that there are just signs of it existing, but so far it has not surfaced. As per some online comments I had gathered this information that Rafi Sahab had rendered this Poem by Pradeep “Khud jiyo auron ko bhi jeene do” for a documentary film made by films division of India. In this document Prithvi Raj Kapoor is shown singing this peom in a class room. I chanced upon this blog in January 2010 while looking for the full lyrics of this poem.

Last week I again searched for any more clues about this rendition by Rafi Sahab and found that a documentary named “khud jiyo auron ko bhi jeene do” was listed in the archives of Films Division of india. This raises hopes that this song exists. So I have requested Sudhir Sir to try to find it.

But this celebration post cannot wait and it started on the blog and I needed a special song for this. Four posts on this 15KSMC have already appeared , awesome songs and posts by Peeviecee’s Mom, Avinash Ji, Shenoy ji and Ava ji. In my own searches and looking for inspiring song, I have just skimmed by these articles and not been able to give comments. All of these were relatively newer songs, so I looked for an old song. I found one Rafi Solo from the 50’s which should have been here already.

But just as I was trying to introspect and decide how to start the post and what to write in it, I remembered this endearing philosophical song rendered by Rafi Sahab in English. The song exhorts us to remember that the world is one and that we share one earth, sky and sun. For all that we know, we are alone in the universe. The universe out there is huge, mean and dangerous. It makes sense for the dwellers of this planet to stick together and not try to wipe each other out from the face of the earth. The past Civilizations of the bygone eras were destroyed due to natural calamities and due to excesses committed by humanity. There are traces of these bygone civilizations, some of which were literally rotten to death. There are continents on this earth, where the entire aboriginal races were eliminated to cater to the human greed of the so called civilized races. That was the era where the strong destroyed the weak for greed of land and resources and wealth.

Now the continents of the world and its controllers are invested in each other and are dependent on each other for accumulation of their virtual wealth and power. And the nation states of the modern world are sailing in the same seas. It is the financial interests of the market forces of modern civilsation, that guide the national pride and the fervor of strategically important market places. In this wider picture also the old adage “united we stand, divided we fall” holds good.

The lyrics of the song are written by Harindernath Chattopadhyay, to suit the meter of the song ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao” arguably the most popular song ever. The composers of these iconic songs are Shankar-Jaikishan.

The earnest and honest rendition by Rafi Sahab is to be heard and absorbed in the heart. This is Rafi Sahab singing in an unfamiliar language. He used write down the lyrics in urdu, which is the only language he knew to read and write. A humble person is showing us a wider picture in the mirror.
He tries to make us see ‘ A world his dignity demands. ‘ The Almighty creator looks at the world as one, so remember friends the world is one. And most major monotheistic religions of the world also believe that the human race is created from a single male and female.

So the Rafi song from 1950’s, which is my favorite period for widest range of Rafi Sahabs songs, will wait for its turn in this series. Just a reminder to myself, that I need to write a post each to commemorate 100 years of Majrooh Sultanpuri, Kaifi Azmi and Shamshad Begum.

Meanwhile, to all those connected with blog, my fellow contributors and the kaptans, I extend heartiest congratulations on this milestone of 15000 songs, and wish that we all find the gems we look for in the musical khazana.


Song-Remember friends the world is one (Rafi NFS)(1970) Singer-Mohammed Rafi,Lyrics-Harindernath Chattopadhyay, MD-Shankar-Jaikishan

Lyrics

although we hail from different lands
we share one earth and sky and sun
remember friends the world is one
although we hail from different lands
we share one earth and sky and sun
remember friends the world is one

we want all enmity to cease
for we want peace
we all want peace
we want no hate
we want no strife
since we were born
for love and life

come let us chant while joining hands
we shall not rest till wars are done
remember friends the world is one
although we hail from different lands
we share one earth and sky and sun
remember friends the world is one

we have met here to dream and build
we want our dreams to be fulfilled
we have come here to dream and plan
a world of joy and hope for men
a world His dignity demands
a world that we shall see begun
remember friends the world is one

although we hail from different lands
we share one earth and sky and sun
remember friends the world is one
