A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 2
————————————————————–

64th Birthday of Kavita Krishnamurthy
——————————————————————

Once upon a time, in our office, the crowd was more interfering in each other’s lives. There would be judgmental comments about each other, if someone works very hard, there was gossip about them. If someone is not very hard working there would be gossip and snide comments about them. 90’s and early 2000’s was a time when all had more time to bother about other people. Interference is one way to look at it. We were in one corner of Mumbai, and there were very few people who travelled long distances to arrive, and most of us were from nearby areas. There was less of anonymity or disregard of big city atmosphere. Come to think of it, most of us used to think of the office as a second home. As the working day would be full of work, talking to people and friends. We were more open to all sort of talk, discussions and even gossip. The office building would be like a small village, where everyone knew everything about everyone. That was an atmosphere, where, every new day was a new beginning. And come weekend, we would be full of plans for the next week. On Monday, we will do this or start on that work.

I don’t know, it feels as if things have gradually changed over the decades. Now every Friday, most of us actually feel joy that there will be no office for 2 days. Long weekend is more joyous, we all wish each other happy weekend. Whereas earlier it was, ‘see you on Monday’.
There was no A.C. in the office, nor fancy blinds or fancy name plates on the cabins, not much eating out and very few snack parties. But those were the happier days. Today, I have more money to spend, more authority to assert, freer to shop what ever the sales persons bring to sell, more snacks and lunch to order from outside eateries, as the office canteen is still is very bad. But the comradery of old days is absent. For sure, not all is ingenuine, but still the happiness quotient is gone. Or maybe I am simply bored.

Yeah, change is a part of life. Colleagues and friends of the older generation have all retired. Some of the dear friends have moved away, or transferred to different places. One corner of Mumbai has begun to feel and behave like a city. I am ready to admit, that I may have also changed. As we mature, it brings a certain discretion, in how we deal with new people. What was working and meeting with other people, has now become more of a dealing with people. Or having learnt from so many experiences, I have learnt to have superficial contact with people. I thought being superficial is just not my nature. But recently, I am introspecting, that maybe I have become like everyone else. Not a good sight.

I have seen some people in my life, and every time I have resolved, never to be like them. Some times we encounter people with really ugly mindset. I have a friend, who would always be looking for excuses, why certain person behaves like that, or has such type of manner. For a longish time, I also tried to look the other way, whenever such ugliness showed its face. I became so adept at ignoring things, that it would take a new person coming into the set up and that person would show me with examples, that such and such things are happening and I am not even aware. So, this was actually a sort of tuning out, from the atmosphere, so the bad things are totally ignored.

The reason I went into the flashback and into those good old days is the song from the film ‘Taal’. In early 2000’s we used to have lot of extra curricular activities in the office. One of the favourite events was ‘antakshari’. In one of those competitions, I had my friend as my partner. This one was a serious competition, very serious with all the contestants very keen to win. The hosts had done lot of hard work, to prepare for the tough rounds. One such tough rounds were picking up chits of a set of words, and recognize the song, which I found to be very easy. We did very well in that round. We did well in the round for recognizing the mukhda from the stanza also. Then there was the round of ‘dumb-charade’ where the chit was for movie name. My partner, picked up the chit and it was ‘Taal’. She made the suitable ‘Taal’ action and I knew the name. But unfortunately, I could not sing any song, none would come to mind. Both me and my friend were repeating ‘taal se taal milaa’, but that is not mukhda. So, we lost those crucial points, despite recognizing so many of the songs in stanza/mukhda round and the ‘set of word’ round, we finished second.

The movie ‘Taal’ was produced and directed by Subhash Ghai, who celebrated his birthday on 24/01/2022. Now it is the birthday of Kavita krishnamurthy today, so the second version is by Kavita Krishnamurthy and Sukhwendra Singh with Chorus. First version is actually a group song, which has Sonu Nigam with ARR, Anuradha Sriram, and Sujata Mohan. This song has long been in the list of Sonu Nigam songs, which I want to post. No better occasion, then Kavita Krishnamurthy’s birthday and post no. two of series on ARR. The Kavita Krishnamurthy version is listed as a separate song actually, but the same mukhda of first version is part of this song too, so it is a version song. The songs are picturized on Aishwarya Rai, Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna.

Those were cable TV days, so I have seen this movie on cable TV. Some Sundays were spent watching movies on cable TV, 2-5 and then 6-9 shows. They would show the newer movies at 11-2 also sometimes. Like all Subash Ghai movies, this was also a musical, teaming up with ARR for the first time, who teamed up with Anand Bakshi as lyricist for the first time. I find this score of a purely hindi film much more attractive then, the dubbed songs in Mani Ratnam films.
More on ARR in coming posts, so we can listen to this wonderful sufiana/situational song.

55th birthday of A. R. Rehman
———————————————————–

A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 1
———————————————————–

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. – Rumi

Some years ago, I received a Whatsapp forward featuring a sketch with Rumi’s character, in a 21st century setting. This requires careful description, so you all please be patient with me.

There he was, 13th century persian poet and philosopher, Jalaludding Rumi, turban and all, sitting on one end of a small primitive boat. A boat that fits in a New York apartment’s living room. Guess who is doing the honors of ‘Chappu chalauing’ at the other end of the boat? It was Chandler, of ‘Friends’ fame. Imagine a boat on the floor of a city living room, at one end Chandler is roving the boat and Rumi is sitting on the other end. The caption with it, also in 21st century English, read “When you are looking for a Roomie and misspell it!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha. If no one is laughing, I have only myself to blame for thinking of Rumi. “ham wahan hain jahan se ham ko bhi kuchh hamaari khabar nahi aati”

I have been exposed to some episodes of ‘Friends’, so identifying Chandler was the easy bit in the caricature. I could connect, the word “Roomie” to Rumi after some deliberation, but never having seen Rumi, or his picture or sketch, I was wondering who is the peasant in the boat. And what is a boat doing in the living room? It transpired that Rumi had arrived in his boat in response to the ad posted by Chandler for a roomie, as he misspelt it as Rumi. Since in Rumi’s time the preferred mode of transport was a boat, Persia is sure to have been full of rivers. Or canals, like Venice.

But I quite liked the idea of a boat in the living room. I did contemplate, on a real-life boat, the size of a two-three seater sofa, which was available for sale in a handicraft shop in Alleppy, Kerela. I could not figure out a way of transporting it to Mumbai, so had to drop the idea. I have a few embellished display size boats, but it is not the same. Now, after writing all this, I am thinking I should make another attempt at it.

At least a boat is doable, but imagine if someone is fond of trains, how will they get them in the living room. Trains are good for travelling, they take you from Point A to Point B, that is their usefulness. I have seen a train on the dining table with tracks and all, for movement of serving dishes, somewhere in a museum, probably. Now that is nice idea, if the kitchen is next of the dining section, a train can be made and for variety, a tunnel or two can added in the landscape. My imagination is running away with me.

I have finally arrived at the destination point, i. e. a train song. An iconic song for our generation of movie goers. A sufiana song written by Gulzar and composed by A. R. Rehman for Dil Se(1998). Singers are Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. There is a lot of trivia available here about this song. There is this page too, which states that this song and video was at 9th position in the poll for top 10 all time songs, for which people from 55 countries voted. This poll was conducted by BBC world service.

The original composition of a solo by Sukhwinder Singh titled “Thaiyya thaiya” is also part of the movie’s song track, though it was not used in the film. The song begin with the lines “Eid aayi mera yaar nayi aaya”, but it is actually based on Bulle Shah’s “Tere ishq nachaya kar thhaiya thhaiya”. The version is mostly in Punjabi, with the same tune. So, I thought maybe that should be treated as a separate song.

These films songs are among the best of A. R. Rehman, Gulzar and Lata Mangeshkar. And they will be the best of Udit Narayan & Mahalaxmi Iyer(Aye Ajnabi), Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamurthy(tu hi tu satragi re), Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi(Chhaiyya chhaiyya).

The song becomes iconic due to its picturization of a group of dancers, with Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora, dancing atop a running train. It is shot in location of Ooty. This is also the best of Farah Khan’s choreography. This is among the first few outdoorsy songs I shortlisted for posting in the blog.

Gulzar sahab is talking of ‘Jannat’ and ‘Firdaus’, which means Paradise. ‘Gulposh is invisible, kaayenaat is universe, Taaveez is talisman, ‘aayat’ is sentence/verse(scholars say ‘aayat’ in the quranic context are niether sentence nor verse, it is an entirely different unit of deliverance) of Al-Quran which are in Arabic. What Gulzar sahab may mean in this line ‘mera naghma wahi mera kalma wahi’, is that ishq as a philosophy is my song, my first and last word.

wo yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah
jis ki zubaan urdu ki tarah

The first thought the word ‘Urdu’ invokes in the minds of Urdudaan as well as non-urdudaan, is its sweetness (Shireen) and cultured-ness(muhazzib). These two things ‘shireeni’ and ‘tehzeeb’ go hand in hand and are two sides of the same coin. This literally means, the object of ishq is anything that has flagrant aura and talks speaks and sings with a sweetness. Fragrance is a thing which is also pure, clean and invisible. Sincerity and unpretentiousness, plus a sweet way of conduct and speech is:

Meri shaam raat
Meri kaayenaat

Shaam is a time of relaxation and liesure and raat is for resting. ‘Kaayenaat’ is my ‘universe of abundance’. So there goes, if the object of my ishq is, the highest ideals of sincerity and good conduct, then it will be my contentment and happiness for which sky in the limit. Is this the salvation and moksh in this life?

Saare ishq ki chhaaon chale chhainyya chhainya
Paaon jannat chale chale chal chhainyya chhainyya

And

Jin ke sar ho ishq ki chhaaon
Paaon ke neeche jannat hogi

They both mean the same, that those who live under the shade of such an ishq, heaven/paradise is theirs.

Remembering Jalaluddin Rumi and his philosophy is eventually justified by Gulzar sahab’s this master piece. Maybe the quote is the wrong one, the correct one is this:

“There is no salvation for the soul but to fall in love. Only lovers can escape out of these two worlds.” – Rumi

I have been thinking for sometime now that there so many iconic songs composed by ARR, that a garland or a necklace of these gems can be made. So I have chosen myself to do this series. The first episode is this song, starting on the birthday of ARR. I have done a few posts of his songs in the blog earlier for songs of ‘lagan’ ‘zubieda’ ‘sapney’ etc. This is by far an ambitious series for me to undertake, as it is very difficult to fit theses gems in a particular form to complete a cohesive design of the necklace. I will play by the ear, and God willing try to complete this series in 2022.

Celebrating 75th year of India’s independence
————————————————————

I was just talking to a friend, who is very much involved with charity work and NGO’s. I said to her that it is very important for us to be charitable in all walks of life, for the health and prosperity of our soul. Doing a small thing for someone else’s benefit, however small that thing may be, which might not require any great effort on our part, gives immense satisfaction to us. This is to be experienced and not imparted. Giving and sharing of knowledge, makes the job of a teacher and guide the most charitable one in my opinion. Giving of advice or offering verbal guidance is sometimes ridiculed. But if an experience is shared, helps someone reach a correct decision or destination, there is nothing like it, as an act of charity free of cost.

But I find in myself, a hesitancy is directly offering to help. If I come across someone in need, then I would do so in whatever capacity I can, I told the friend, but I don’t go out of my way to find if someone requires some help. This is where I lack, and the charity organisations and NGO’s do the maximum output this way. The final conclusion of this discussion was that if everyone of us is involved in small acts of charity, in whatever way and in whatever capacity we can, the world will be a much better place.

Not that it is a very bad place to live, there is good and there is evil. Most of humanity is a charitable mass. Here devilry exists, that’s how we can know and value the goodness around us. One day I found a very good friend of mine reading a so called, non-fiction book titled “There is no devil”, or some such similar thing. My instant reaction was “Hey don’t read fiction posing as non-fiction”. She is not normally into reading books and this one was a thick paperback. This incident happened some years ago. I reminded her of it recently when our conversation turned to evil doers and evil people.

I believe that the world survives because of people who mean good and are trusting.

On my own part, if I need some help or favour, I will usually directly ask for it, no beating about the bush and hinting, nor waiting for that person to offer help. This habit of mine sometimes embarrasses people, which I realise belatedly. And then I have to do damage control, by saying it is alright if you can’t do it, or if you can do only this much, that will also be a great help.

This, I am told is because I have a very trusting nature. I also find it very easy to share my problems. If I am having some difficulty, or something is not getting done and I am stuck somewhere, I will share it with someone who is on hand, or standing in front of me. Of course, not to strangers, only with people I know well, I behave in this impulsive manner. Some may thing that “yeh achha hai, apne problem doosron ko de do aur khud free ho jaao” 🙂 :-).

Often, I have found that sharing of problems and issues, lessens the worry and sometimes results in help from unexpected and unknown sources. Any which way resolution of the problem is the end result. Such help from unexpected quarters is what is called divine help.

The world as it is, is running on trust. If trust on the laws of nature and the essential goodness, correct faculties and abilities of fellow human beings was not part of the DNA of humans then there would be nothing happening here on this earth. If this was not so, no one will be able to drive a vehicle on the road, to give an example of a small routine act.

And this is the same invincible trust which makes me type these random thoughts and experiences of life and send them for posting in the blog. I have known it that I have been in the correct place and deservedly the best possible blog, with the aim of categorising the hindi film songs. Eleven years ago, when I discovered this blog, I was under the impression that film music is my favourite pass time activity(after reading). But after all these years of writing for the blog, I am not very sure that it is the film songs or the writing, which I took up in earnest only with this blog, is my favourite activity. May be listening old hindi film songs is my passion and writing about them and other things is my calling.

Where I am going with all this? Not towards any particular destination as such. Only to express the conviction that being charitable and trusting is the natural way of life for human beings. If we are living any other way than it is somewhat an unnatural state to be in. There are people around us who feel insecure at some minor/major level and they behave in a less charitable manner, maybe in some aspect of their lives. Also, there are certain paranoia’s visible around us, which don’t really amount to abnormal behaviour, but they cause a handicap to the personal growth of affected person. Not to say that I have never been uncharitable or less trusting in my life. We all the susceptible to insecurities and paranoias of different kind.

But there is certainly a way to victory out of all this, with the strength of character, belief, trust and faith. These are the things that are required to succeed in any field. Sporting activity is no different, and as we celebrate the excellent performance of Indian athletes in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics, and a first Gold Medal in athletics, won by Neeraj Chopra, we also celebrate the victory of the individual excellence, collectively with the joy of celebrating the 74 years of independence.

A song befitting the sporting triumph and the assertion of national pride is being presented, from the film ‘Chak de India’ (2007). The song is composed by Salim-Sulieman, written by Jaideep Sahani and the singers are Sukhwinder Singh, Salim Merchant and Marianna D’cruz.

This is a background song in the movie as the women hockey team is readied to participate in the world cup. The character building, confidence instilling and disciplining steps taken by the coach are what pays eventually as each player excels personally, toughens mentally, disciplines psychologically and grows up with the team and then succeeds. True success belongs to the whole team, not to the individual players, not to the captain, nor to the coach. In this years Olympics, eerily, the reel incident replicated in real life, with the Indian hockey team defeating the touted Australian team, in a shocking upset to reach the semi-final.

One song from this film is already posted in the blog:

This blog is an important and valued place on the internet and it is an honour to be a part of it. I dread to be a cause of any mis-happening or demeaning of the integrity of the blog. This space is my karambhoomi, dear diary, sounding board and much more, and I have been open to corrections/suggestions regarding my posts, by Atul ji and Sudhir ji.

While wishing Happy Independence Day to all the readers, I also wish to thank Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, for allowing me to write to my heart’s content. I will be forever grateful and indebted to this blog and all people associated with it, my fellow guest writers, Deshmukh Sir, Kamath Sir, Peevisie’s Mom and Satyajeet Rajurkar Sir (to name a few), and all the visitors and regular commenters. The confidence expressed by these senior historians and accomplished persons in different fields, means the world to me. It humbles me and encourages me to write more and better posts in future.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Taal’ which was released in ‘1999’.

I was staying at Bareilly (1998-2004) at that time. I remember to have watched this movie with my family and enjoyed it a lot. I liked it so much that I watched this movie twice. First time with my office colleague and second time with my family. I liked this movie and specially its music too. As was usual for a Subhash Ghai movie, this movie too had a good music scored by A.R. Rehman (who was collaborating with Subhash Ghai for the first time).

‘Taal-1999’ was Subhash Ghai’s home production and it was distributed under his company ‘Mukta Arts’ and ‘Tips International’.

Subhash Ghai was the producer and director of this movie. He co-authored writing with Javed Siddiqui (dialogues), and in writing screenplay with Sachin Bhowmick.

Story of this movie was written by Subhash Ghai.

The star-cast of this movie included Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Roy, Akshay Khanna, Amrish Puri, Alok Nath, Jividha Ashta, Mita Vashisht, Saurabh Shukla, Supriya Karnik, Prithvi Zutshi, Manoj Pahwa, Rajesh Khera, Bobby Darling, and many others.

This movie had twelve soundtracks including ten songs and two instrumental tracks. Lyrics for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by A.R. Rehman.

The music of this movie was well appreciated and successful.

Today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. On screen Alok Nath lip-syncs in Sukhwinder Singh’s voice and Aishwarya Roy lip syncs in Alka Yagnik’s voice.

10th July 2021 was the sixty-fifth birthday of actor Alok Nath (born on 10th July’1956). We all know him as an established character actor and the various roles he had enacted in the Hindi movies. He made his film debut with 1982 English movie “Gandhi” directed by Richard Attenborough. Later on, he went to act in many ‘TV Soaps’ and Hindi movies. His notable works came in Rajshri Productions’ ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya-1989’, ‘Ham Aapke Hain Kaun-1994’ and ‘Ham Saath Saath Hain-1999’.

On this blog we belatedly wish Alok Nath a very happy birth anniversary and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

To mark this occasion, we listen to today’s song.

But before that, we also wish the singer of today’s song i.e., Sukhwinder Singh a very happy birthday on 18th July.

Sukhwinder Singh was born on 18th July’1971 (18.07.2021 will be his fiftieth birthday). He belongs to Amritsar Punjab. He started his musical career by releasing a Pop song album in Punjabi. Later on, he joined Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s troupe and also got an opportunity to sing under them for the movie ‘Khilaaf-1991’. He went on singing in some other movies which got unnoticed till he sung the song ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ in the 1998 movie ‘Dil-Se’. That also brough him his first ‘Filmfare Award’.

After ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ he became a household name. And with ‘Jai-Ho’ in the 2008 movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ Sukhwinder Singh got an international acclaim. He has also sung in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, and Urdu languages other than Hindi and Punjabi language.

Let us now enjoy today’s wonderful song composed by A.R. Rehman from the movie ‘Taal-1999’.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by A.R. Rehman.

With today’s song the movie ‘Taal-1999’ makes its debut on the blog.

Over to the song now …

 Today we remember the great son this soil Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his birth anniversary.

We remember him for his bravery, courage, determination and supreme sacrifice made for a cause of the people, the people of this country.

He laid down his life at a young age of only 23 years, 5 months, and 25 days. He could have surrendered to the British and chosen a leisurely life enjoying the benefits and luxuries showered by the Britishers on him, had he requested to forgive him as proposed by them. However instead of choosing ‘the life of slavery’ he chose to dedicate his life for the ‘noblest cause – the freedom of his Motherland’ from the Britishers.

He will remain the inspiration for many as long as humanity exists and people read about him and realize what Bhagat Singh was and how great was he to have done so much in one single life of only 23 years.

I have earlier presented my thoughts while presenting the songs ‘Pagdi Sambhaal Jatta’ and ‘Vekho Loko Khidan To Pehlon’. Whatever will be written about him to remember him and his thoughts, is very less in comparison to the legacy he has left for us. And I am sure as the coming generations read about him will find his thoughts still relevant in terms of what his dreams of ‘true freedom’ for India was and what we have achieved after getting our ‘freedom’ – and they will find that yes, we have still miles to go to build this nation in the pursuit of those dreams.

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts the year 2002 was a special year as in that year there were as many as three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend Of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

While “23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend Of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date the other movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released at a later date.

I will not go into which one amongst them was better than the other. The important thing is that they were made on the life of Bhagat Singh and to make people aware of his true story (may be with a little or more filmy touch).

Today I present a song from the Rajkumar Santoshi directed ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh-2002’. This movie was produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh Taurani (of TIPS). It had the star cast of Ajay Devgan, Sushant Singh, D. Santosh, Akhilendra Mihsra, Raj Babbar, Farida Jalal, Amrita Rao, Mukesh Tiwari, Surendra Rajan, Saurabh Dubey, Kenny Desai, Sitaram Panchal, Bhaskar Chatterjee, Sunil Grover and others.

The screenplay was written by Rajkumar Santoshi, Piyush Mishra and Anjum Rajabali. It was edited by VN Mayekar. Songs for this movie were penned by Sameer and music was composed by AR Rehman.

All songs of this movie composed by AR Rehman are very very good and I liked them as they fill us with patriotic fervour and with a poignant touch, yet making us thoughtful on the life and times of the martyrs and their feelings for their motherland.

Today’s song is in two parts and is sung by AR Rehman and Sukhwinder Singh.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now …

Desh Mere Desh Mere Meri Jaan Hai Tu …

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 17
———————————————————————

Some achievements boggle your mind. A few years ago it was 10k song and now its 10 years of this blog. Maybe I should say it bloggles my mind! Terrible puns aside, I apologize for this delayed write up. Some incidents over the last weekend, caused me to tragically lose my phone, and after a remote data erase, miraculously find it again. It felt like a Hindi film honestly, one I would have titled ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ if there hadn’t already been one by that name.

But today I am spurred into re-action as I seemed to be the only one without a post on this occasion despite being named by the fantastic Atul ji as the youngest contributor (though, isn’t that credit long stolen. I remember a 18 yr old writing about amirbai karnataki?) I decided that ‘देर आए पर दुरुस्त आए’ will be my style and I will write a new article and mark my attendance so to speak.

As I read what Atul ji wrote, I reflected on my own journey, from a watcher of movies to being someone who now stands behind the camera for 16 hrs a day and watches the magic happen. I love watching movies for fun even today and that’s how my first watch of anything still is. But my subsequent watches have me looking at individual shots and camera movements, production design and set decor, costuming and makeup, and all these aspects as they come together with the script and dialogue as an experience. I not only appreciate the executive brilliance but also spend time imagining the sight of some poor production guy whose life turned miserable for the shot to be executed.

Of course there are a lot of people who would like to say that movies made earlier are better than current movies but this honestly not true. Especially the 70s-90s, I grew up in the 90s, but I have to have  my nostalgia glasses glued to my face when I see the movies. Else I will start ranting about their problematic portrayals for a few days. Similarly some movies were technically brilliant then but there is some great original work being done today too. Of course like in a podcast by SnG comedy’s Aadar Malik (nephew to Anu Malik and a comedian in his own right) mentioned, (talking about the lack of technical advancement they recorded under in the 70s), “Yeh log ko itna mehnat aur perfection rakhana padta tha, because ek mistake bhi kitna bhari padta, ek do gaana chura liya toh kya hua aisa lagta hai”

My song today is one I picked not just because of its celebratory mood, nor because it has a varied ensemble that resembles us Atulites, but also to appreciate the hard work behind the whole thing. It’s the first song that’s been filmed, and presented in entirely one take in one camera. Our beloved song from ‘Aradhna’ (1969) had multiple cameras and the song from ‘Main Hoon Na’ had cuts from a separate location. This one had neither and you have to appreciate all the work and practice needed for everyone to be exactly in the place they needed to be at every moment whether in focus or out, their high energy throughout and the absolute conviction in co-ordination they had. There is also a very cute shot of Priyanka doing a dance step like an extra with her face looking away as she moved from one side to another for her next cue. The dance is cute and fun and Priyanka and Ranveer make the cutest siblings.

The song is from ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ (2015) which is directed by Zoya Akhtar. and has a whole list of performers. We have Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh as Kabir Mehra, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose, Vikrant Massey, Ridhima Sud, Parmeet Sethi, Dolly Mattdo, Manoj Pahwa, Preeti Mamgain, and a few I couldn’t identify dancing along perfectly in sync. The music is by Shankar ehsaan Loy and the lyrics are by Javed Akhtar. The singers are Shankar Mahadevan, Yashita Sharma, Manish Kumar Tipu, Farhan Akhtar and Sukhwinder Singh.

Enjoy. And congratulations to all

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 1
———————————————————————

I have not been active either on the blog, or on whatsapp groups for quite a while now. Earlier this year I developed a health issue and had to go through a surgical procedure. Things are fine now though 🙂 . Catching up on all the work pending for the last few months.

Let me now get to the post that I would like to contribute.

10 years, that is a decade. . . the “BIG X”. What a journey this has been! Still remember how one fine day, by sheer accident, I stumbled upon this amazing blog, and made my way to the first post that was made – the song “Miley Na Phool Toh Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” by Rafi sahab for the film ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1968), starring Parikshit Sahni. Then the next song if I remember correctly was “Tum Agar Mujhko Na Chaaho Toh Koi Baat Nahi” by Mukesh Sahab for the movie ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), sung on screen by Raj Kapoor and he sings it to the cute and gorgeous Nutan 🙂 .

One of my favourite bosses always used to tell us – there is one thing I find is the secret of being sane and that is to have a ROUTINE! He says, that it does not matter if you have your highs or your lows in life, never give up on your routine. If you have to walk in the morning, do that, come what may. If you have lunch at a particular time, do that regularly. Somehow with time, and how our priorities change, we give up on what once used to a routine / habit for us. But few people who we can get inspired by for being so committed and never gave up on their routine and dedication to the blog are Atul ji, Sudhir ji, Arunkumar ji, Bharat ji and the entire group of Atulites. What they have managed to do in these 10 years is more than monumental. This is going to be a treasure trove for generations to come. All this was not because it was a great startup idea or there was a motive behind it, it was just for sheer love of old hindi music and as Atul ji likes to call it ‘Labour of Love’.

I wish in the near future I am able to get back to my old routine and be more active on the blog (it does need a mention, that in spite of me being inactive, I have always been kept in the loop with emails, thank you Atulites). Have also spoken to Avinash ji, that Aparna, Avinash ji and I should get back to our Project YIPPEEEE!! (should get much more easy now with help from Sudhir ji).

To celebrate this wonderful milestone, I choose a very recent song, which I really like and also a song that my daughter plays in a loop every time she gets in the car 🙂 . The song is from the recently release movie ‘Sanju’, a movie on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The movie had mixed reactions and even I did feel that his life story was glorified, but what no one can refute is the fact that Ranbir Kapoor was a class act. He has portrayed Sanjay Dutt to the T, so much so that at some point of time into the movie, one forgets that he is Ranbir and start thinking he is Sanjay Dutt. The movie also makes one wonder how life would have been for the respected Sunil Dutt, having to lose his wife, Nargis to cancer and at the same time bring up a troubled child like Sanjay.

Coming to the song, it is a song that Sanjay Dutt imagines his mother egging him on to conquer anything. The song is titled “Kar Har Maidaan Fateh” and sung by one and only Sukhwinder Singh (his voice is a perfect fit for songs like these). And ably supported by another wonderful singer, Shreya Ghoshal. The tempo of the song is brilliant and it is like a shot in the arm and a morale booster to conquer any mountain.

Though 10 years is a big mountain that Team Atul have conquered, as Atul ji says, we have hardly scraped the surface, and there is a long journey to look forward to. Here is a BIG congratulation to Team Atul and wishing us all the very best for the next milestone round the corner 🙂 . So so blessed to be part of this journey 🙂 .

in gardishon ke baadalon pe chadh ke
waqt ka girebaan pakad ke
poochhna hai jeet ka pata

in muthiyon mein chaand taare bhar ke
aasman ki hadd se guzar ke
ho ja tu bheed se judaa

kehne ko zarra hai tu
lohe ka chharra hai tu
tooti shamsheeron se hi ho oo oo

jab teri yeh zid aag hogi
phoonk dengi na-ummeediyaan

tere peechhe peechhe raaste ye chal ke
baahon ki nishanon mein dhal ke
dhoondh lenge apna aashiaan

Blog Day : 3567 Post No. : 14298

Hullo Atuldom

This is the ideal time for this post as a cricket- crazy nation is enjoying the 10th season of Indian Premier League or IPL as it is called.

It is also the time to celebrate the 45th birthday of’ ‘the god of cricket’. But he himself is rather humble and human enough to say that ‘God of Cricket’ is someone else. He is also called the ‘Master Blaster’. He is a pint-sized tornado that burst on the Indian cricketing scene in 1989 following his awesome performances in the local tournaments of Ranji Trophy, Irani Trophy and Deodhar Trophy. His inclusion into the Mumbai Ranji team happened in 1987 but that year he narrowly missed playing alongside his idol -Sunil Gavaskar who had retired from all forms of cricket after the 1987 Cricket World Cup. But he was used mostly as a substitute fielder. At the age of 15 years and 232 days, in 1988, he was picked to play for Mumbai against Gujarat and scored a century on debut, in fact he has scored centuries on debut in the Irani and Deodhar Trophies too. His brilliance was the talk among cricket followers of Maidan-cricket, in Mumbai, in that period and he was coached by the able master Ramakant Achrekar. At age 14 he attended the MRF Pace Foundation to train as a fast bowler under Dennis Lillee who asked him to concentrate on his batting. He holds a record along with fellow school-mate and India Teammate Vinod Kambli for an unbroken partnership of 664 in a Harris Shield Inter-school tournament. Oh, he has numerous records to his name – youngest player to debut in International games for India being one of them. He was 16 years 205 days at the time of his test debut and 16 years 238 days when made his ODI debut.

If the readers have not yet guessed, I am talking of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, named after his father Ramesh Tendulkar’s favourite music composer- Sachin Dev Burman. (See the cricket to movie connection here, we simply cannot escape the two going parallel). So, like every normal youngster of the late 70s and early 80s cricket was Sachin’s addiction and he was lucky that his parents saw his talent early on and provided facilities to nurture his talent unlike other parents back then who used to feel – “playing all the time meant studies would suffer then what would one do for bread and butter?” It can be safely said that Sachin’s parents, more importantly his mother, must have been inspiration for parents of later cricketers specially from smaller towns and cities of India – hope that explains the emergence of players like the Pathan brothers, Dhoni, Sehwag etc.

These days there is a trend of biopics among filmmakers in Bollywood. I think ‘Bhaag Milka Bhaag’ (2013) was the inspiration for this new set of films. What followed was a movie on Azharuddin (2016), MS Dhoni (2016), wrestler Mary Kom (2014) etc. There was a movie even on the match fixing scandal that rocked cricketing circles and got bans of various durations for the players involved virtually finishing their playing careers.

But I don’t want to talk of sad occurrences like scandal or bans in this post. Let us focus on our birthday boy who played cricket for close to 25 years without a break? No there was a small break when he had an injured elbow and the world learnt what is a tennis-elbow 😉. There was a film in 2017 which was more of a docu-drama where Sachin himself faced the camera as the narrator of the movie; unlike the movie on Dhoni where Shushant Singh Rajput enacted the part and Emraan Hashmi played Azhar. “Sachin: A Billion Dreams” is directed by James Erskine and released world- wide in the month of May just as the IPL season was coming to a close. The movie shows Sachin as he is in real life. It has music by AR Rehman, and the songs are written by Irshad Kaamil. The song with this post is sung by Sukhvinder Singh and an unknown female voice towards the end, also in the English words. It begins on Sachin’s home ground – Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium where there are stands named after Vijay Merchant, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar- all of whom have played a major role in making cricket a national craze. It shows the back of a Sachin fan who was a permanent at all the venues where India has played cricket since 2008. The song with the mantra – chant “Sachin Sachin” that used to be heard everywhere whenever Sachin stepped on the field; be it for batting, bowling or plain fielding. He was a darling of the public. Wishing him all the best in his retired life and lots of good times with his family and friends.

[Ed Note: As per information from other online sources, the rap portion of this song is written and sung by Kaly.]

Hi to all in Atuldom

Here is a quick quiz. Can anyone tell what is 26th October all about? Well well since this is a post by me obviously the answer to the quiz is birthday. But whose? One of our —ahh is it ok if I call the person a founder follower of the blog? One who has seen this ASAD from day one. Someone whose farmaish was first on the blog. Someone who saw the exclusive farmaish page on the blog first and sent a list of 5 farmaishes. One who was Atulji’s online friend first before physically meeting him. Am I right Atulji?
