ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 10
———————————————————————

I have just finished noting down lyrics of the song I have chosen – it has taken me one hour at least. I have listened to the song close to 4-5 times. I had to listen to some parts again and again trying to figure out what the singer was saying, revise my lyrics and note down which portions were sung by the male or female singer and which was sung by them both. I do this only once in a while, not being the owner of the blog but an occasional participant. It made me appreciate more and more the amount of dedication the usual writers put in. To combine all this with a write up to explain the song, add anecdotes related to the song and sometimes, stories that led to the song is all hard work, believe me. In this age and time of quick fixes, short cuts, bullet points and shortened attention spans it is difficult to even understand this kind of dedication.

Hats off to the owners of the blog (Atul ji and Sudhir ji) and a team of dedicated Atulties who fuel this blog with their enthusiasm. There are many Atulites who are intensely interested in the goings on related to the blog. I find they are all lovely people who share a deep love of music. Their camaraderie is commendable, not only do they discuss the events on the blog, but also try their best to meet up often. I have attended one such meeting and have been awed by the depth of knowledge they have of music and the various ways in which they share their knowledge.

I have chosen a song from a relatively new movie, ‘Yahan’ from 2005. It is the directorial debut of Shoojit Sircar who garnered fame for the movie that came after this, ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012) and ‘Piku’ (2015). This movie, as far as I remember, did not make any waves. I happened to see the movie in a cinema hall and was struck by it. Minissha Lamba impressed me and Jimmy Shergill is always a pleasure to watch. The story is about a Kashmiri girl, Ada, who falls in love with an army captain, Aman (Jimmy Shergill). They face many difficulties after they fall in love. Ada risks being ostracized, even killed, for loving an army officer, and that too, not of the same religion. Similarly, Aman is also labelled as a traitor for dealing with Ada’s brother who is a terrorist. The denouement is over simplistic. It is hard to imagine something as complex as Kashmir problem being solved (even in part) by a few acts of an army captain. The charm of the movie lay in the sweet character of the two protagonists. Aman is an upright man who takes full responsibility for the woman he loves. Ada hopes to find peace and love in Aman after dealing with the constant strife in her life.

Listening closely to this song while noting the lyrics, I was struck by the beautiful words penned by Gulzar, clothed most wonderfully by the lovely music composed by Shantanu Moitra. Shreya Ghoshal sings it beautifully, there are times when her voice drops to a whisper and rises again. There are times when the music fades and lets the singer’s voice do its magic. When Shreya sings “Jhelum Mein Beh Lenge”, it feesl like I am floating in Jhelum. The song drips with love and longing. It is hard for a song to be so beautiful unless all three key elements of it, music, lyrics and singing is at its best. In this song you can hear them at their best.

Enjoy the lovely song and send up thanks to our great Atulji for allowing us a platform to enjoy and share music like this and congratulations to all the creators of the blog and the readers.

rang henna likhna
gore badan pe
ungli se mera
naam ada likhna
kabhi kabhi aaspaas chaand rehta hai
kabhi kabhi aaspaas shaam rehti hai

aao na..aa..aa
aao na
jhelum me beh lenge
vaadi ke mausam bhi
ik din to badlenge
kabhi kabhi aaspaas chaand rehta hai
kabhi kabhi aaspaas shaam rehti hai

aaun to subhaa
jaaun to mera
naam sabaa likhna
barf pade to
barf pe mera
naam dua likhna

zara zara aag waag paas rehti hai
zara zara kaangde ki aanch rehti hai
kabhi kabhi aaspaas chaand rehta hai
shamme bujhane….
kabhi kabhi aaspaas shaam rehti hai
aati hain raaten….
raaten bujhaane
tum aa gaye ho..oo

jab tum hanste ho..oo
din ho jata hai
tum galey lago to..oo..oo
din so jaata hai
doli uthaaye
aayega din to
paas bitha lena
kal jo miley to
maathe pe mere
suraj uga dena
zara zara aaspaas dhoop rahegi
zara zara aaspaas rang rahenge
zara zara aaspaas dhoop rahegi
zara zara aaspaas rang rahenge

pooche jo koi meri nishani
rang henna likhna
gore badan pe ungli se mera
naam ada likhna
aa..aa..aa
kabhi kabhi aaspaas chaand rehta hai

kabhi kabhi aaspaas shaam rehti hai
kabhi kabhi aaspaas chaand rehta hai
kabhi kabhi aaspaas shaam rehti hai

rakh saaiyan di jeeve
jeeve
jeeve
rab rakhwala jeeve
rakh saaiyan di jeeve
jeeve

rab rakhwaala jeeve

kabhi kabhi aaspaas chand rehta hai
nanna nanna na na na nanna rehti hai
. . . aaspaas sham rehti hai

lalla lalla laal laal laal la la la laa

lalla lalla aaspaas shaam rehti hai

नाम सबा लिखना
बर्फ पड़े तो
बर्फ पे मेरा

ज़रा ज़रा आग वाग पास रहती है
ज़रा ज़रा कांगड़े की आंच रहती है
कभी कभी आस पास चाँद रहता है
शम्में बुझाने॰ ॰ ॰

जब तुम हँसते हो॰॰ओ

डोली उठाए
आएगा दिन तो

कल जो मिले तो
माथे पे मेरे
सूरज उगा देना
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास धूप रहेगी
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास रंग रहेंगे
ज़रा ज़रा आस पास धूप रहेगी

Hullo to all in atuldom

The city of Calcutta–1962. A city so vibrant, so alive, so stylish, it was referred to as “The Paris of the East”. This exotic backdrop serves as the perfect locale for the tender, immortal love story about to unfold.

The shelf life of a Hindi pop (also called Indipop) song is generally very short. But one that has smitten me seems to be an exception. I have been watching the video clip of the song over a year. The more I listened, more I was curious to know as to why I liked this pop song especially when I have not been a great admirer of such genre of songs.

Regulars of this blog meeting with one another on a one to one basis has been going on from 2010 onwards. It first happened in Nagpur, when Raja ( my long time online acquintance since 2004) decided to pay a visit to Nagpur to meet me as well as another Nagpur based fellow cricket and HFM enthusiast. Friday, 29 october 2010 became the first occasion when I met a blog contributor and it was Raja, who also happened to be the first visitor, first commentor, first guest contributor etc etc of the blog. This meeting that lasted some three hours was a memorable occasion for me. I had mentioned this meeting in a writeup that I posted the next day.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 9
——————————-

This song is simply my most favourite ‘chaand’ song of the 21st century. The last two decades had a few such music scores in Hindi films, ‘ Khaamoshi ‘ and ‘Parineeta’ are among them which made the decades bearable musically. Favourite ‘chaand’ song from the 90’s is here. Melody in film songs was still trying to keep its head above the general cacophony which passed for music and entertainment.

‘You asked me that last night. You need some new material.’

When I was pointed into the right direction, i.e. JK Rowling and Harry Potter, then the mystery dissolved away, and the nickname ‘Peevesie’ came out in a better light. And after spending maybe an hour with her, the significance of the nickname also eased itself into my mind. In the Harry Potter series, Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is known as the spirit of chaos around the school. And so, picking up from her favorite series of teenage adventures, the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself. Hmmm. . . is it that the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself and was then known as Peevesie, or is it that she picked this nickname and then her mom came to be known as Peevesie’s Mom – it is getting a little mixed up in the order in which the things may have happened.

‘Parineeta’ (2005) is one of the aesthetically better movies of the last decade. I had seen this movie on cable TV, but had liked the movie and songs a lot. The movie, cinematography and the understated treatment of the adapted story from Saratchandra Chatterjee’s classic literary piece, were impressive. It is a glamorously packaged product with the subtle nuances. It is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and had Saif Ali Khan and Vidya Balan playing the lead roles, with supporting cast of Sanjay Dutt, Dia Mirza, Raima Sen etc. Its crisp editing is also a feature that I had noted back than, while watching the film.

About a month back, I, my wife and four of my close relatives visited Leh-Ladakh on a two week’s trip. Rather than a relaxed holiday, the trip was an experience in itself. A flight from Delhi for Leh meant that there would be an altitude gain from 292 metres in Delhi to 3550 metres in Leh in about one hour time. It was the best option from the point of view of acclimatisation at a higher altitude. So we had to confine ourselves to our hotel rooms in Leh for 24 hours without doing much of an exertion as part of acclimatisation processes for getting used to the lesser oxygen at higher altitude. Furthermore, during our trip, we were to cross three very high altitude mountain passes – Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable road (5600 metre or 18380 feet above sea level) for visiting Nubra Valley, Chang La, the world’s third highest motorable road (5360 metres or 17585 feet) for visiting Pangong Lake and Fotu La ( 4100m or 13480 feet) for going to Kargil. Fortunately, we did not face much of a problem except some mild altitude sickness experienced by two of my relatives which got resolved quickly as we descended.

Hindi movies of the earlier decades had a few sporadic songs dealing with Mahatma Gandhi, but such songs had become scarce and unfashionable in the last few decades. In fact people used to believe that Mahatma Gandhi himself was unfashionable with the modern generation.
