#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————
# Remembering Mohan Choti #
——————————————-——————————

Today 1st February’2023 is the thirty-first ‘remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ comedian actor, and producer-director Mohan Choti. He passed away on this day in 1992. His date of birth is not known and sources mentioned his year of birth as 1935 and some mentioned it as 1942.

Mohan Choti’s life story has been full of struggle, followed by successful in films in ‘comic-role’, but finally ending in pain and suffering.

He started his film career by doing small roles in movies like ‘Devdas-1955’, ‘Parivaar-1956’ and ‘Musaafir-1957’ where he was first noticed and got his famous name ‘Mohan Choti’.

He got famous and became popular with his role in the movie ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi-1958’.

Later he played important roles in movies like ‘Dil Tera Deewaana-1962’, ‘Raakhi-1962’ etc. However by the end of sixties he ended up getting smaller comic roles only.

Later on he turned producer and director with the movie ‘Dhoti, Lota Aur Chaupaati-1975’ and ‘Hunterwaali-1977’ both of which didn’t fare well at the box office and he has to suffer financially from which he was never able to recover. He kept getting ‘comic roles’ in movies though and his last movie was ‘Muqaddar Ka Baadshaah-1990’.

He passed away on 01.02.1992. He was forgotten by the film industry people in his last days and was he was struggling on financial front.
(Brief about Mohan Choti is based on an article on him from Sanjit Narvekar’s book ‘Eena Meena Deeka: The Story of Hindi Film Comedy’, courtesy our Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh ji.).

Today we pay our tributes to Mohan Choti on his ‘Remembrance Day’ by listening to and watching a song picturised on him from the ‘1969’ movie ‘Anjaan Hai Koi’.

“Anjaan Hai Koi-1969” was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Anand Films’.

It had Feroz Khan, Nalini, Aruna Irani, Helen, Mohan Choti, Tiwari, Jayshree Talpade, Kundan, Uma Dutt, Noorjahaan, Suraj, Rakesh and others.

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Jaspal Singh. Mohan Choti and another actor (I am forgetting his name) are seen performing on this song.

Both Mohan Choti and his friend have lost money while in ‘sattaa or matkaa’. They have even spend their salary in ‘matkaa’ in greed of more money, but lost all. So they wish to make aware people ‘not to play matkaa and lose money’ on it.

Lyrics for the song are written by Sardar Bikaneri and music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Let us now listen to this song…

#the Decade of sixtees – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————

I was looking for a song from ‘seventies’ or specifically from the year ‘1970’ for presenting a song with this post.

So here is a song from the year ‘1970’ which is from the movie ‘Deedaar-1970’.

This song is also a lesser heard song because I do not remember to have listened to it earlier. But, this song deserves to be a better known song. You will agree with me once you watch and listen to this composition.

Here is a brief about this movie ‘Deedaar-1970’.

“Deedar-1970” was directed by Jugal Kishore for his home producitons ‘Jugal Productions’.
It had Anjana, Premendra, Dheeraj, K.N. Singh, Kumud Tripathi, Wasti, Leela Mishra, Mirza Musharraf, Brahmachari, Badri Prasad, Jayshree T., Ram Soni, Shahgul, Chetan, V. Morey, Habib, Meenakshi and others.

This movie has seven songs written by Verma Malik and composed by Usha Khanna.

Four songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

I am sure that I have not watched this movie. When I checked about the earlier posted song I find that I am not familiar with them except the Mukesh song ‘tere honthhon ko teri laali ko’ which I am familiar with and it is in the album of ‘All Time Greats-Mukesh’ – a two cassette set by HMV bought in the eighties.

Today’s song is sung by Shyama Chittar. Jayshree T is seen performing on the song. Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Dheeraj, Habib, and others.

I was not aware about the singer Shyama Chittar and very less information is available about her on the sources. While looking for more details about her I became aware that she is the sister of Suman Kalyanpur. Her voice appeared in songs in movies viz. ‘Dooj Ka Chaand-1964’, ‘Tarzan Ki Mehbooba-1966’, ‘Choron Ka Chor-1970’, ‘Sant Gyaneshwar-1964’, ‘Nadirshah-1968’, ‘Murder In Circus’, ‘Shri Krishn Arjun Yuddhh-1971’ and others.

While many articles on the blog mention about her being the sister of Suman Kalyanpur, I am reproducing the text from two songs posted on the blog.

(‘jhaankti hai meri aankhon se qazaa chhan chhan ke’)

The eighth and final song is a special song as well. It is sung by the Hemmadi Sisters Suman and Shyama Hemmadi, who after their marriages became known as Suman Kalyanpur and Shyama Chittar respectively. The two sisters, though not as prolific as the various Mangeshkar sisters in singing together, have sung together twice in HFM. The first occasion was in “Dooj Ka Chaand)”(1964) and later in “Deedaar” (1970).
Here is the first of these duets sung by the two sisters. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

(‘ye chaand to mridang hai taare hain manjeere’)

This fantastic song is a romantic duet which is sung by Rafi and Shyama Hemmadi. Shyama Hemmadi, later Shyama Chittar, is the younger sister of Suman Kalyanpur. Like Suman Kalyanpur, Shyama Hemmadi’s voice too sounds like Lata, never a good idea for her singing career. No wonder she has sung very few songs and all her songs are extremely obscure.

Today we add one more song sung by Shyama Hemmadi/Chittar on the blog.

Lyrics for this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us enjoy this lively Cabarat dance song by Shyama Chittar…

paani milaake na pee ee ee
aankhein milaake pee jaa

#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————

“Mera Naam Johar-1967” was directed by Sarankant for ‘Sudarshan Chitra’.

It was produced by Dwarkadas and Shrinathdas.

It had I.S. Johar, Sonia Sahani, Tiwari, Aruna Irani, Jagirdar, and Dhumal, with Paul Sharma, Prem, Sudarshan Sharma, Sadhna Khote, Biharisingh, Bhagwan Sinha, Aruna, Sheela, Darshan, Anil and others.

Story, screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Qamer Narvi.

Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu.

Playback singers for the songs in this movie are Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Sharda, Usha Khanna, Mahendra Kapoor, and Mukesh.

Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalalabadi wrote the lyrics of the songs in this movie.

This movie has six songs which were composed by Usha Khanna.

Here is the list of songs in this movie:-

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Saare chiraag gul kar do Asad Bhopali Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Ae meri zindagi koi manzil talaash kar Asad Bhopali Sharda
03 Aye nazneen sun ja zaraa Not known Mahendra Kapoor
04 Sainyya ji ke gaaon mein Asad Bhopali Usha Khanna

06 Raam naam satya hai, gopal naam satya hai Qamar Jalalabadi Mahendra Kapoor , chorus 14.01.2018

One song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 14.01.2018.

Today’s song is the second from this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Sharda. Sonia Sahani performing on this song on screen. In the movie this song is shown as a ‘haunting song’ and I.S. Johar is also visible in the picturisation of this song.

I have not watched this movie and so I cannot say in what context this song takes place in the movie. The movie is available on internet and it seems that it is available since last five years now. (This version is revised version wherein the movie certificate mentions the date of passing of this movie by Censor Board on 03.01.1978. So this seems to be a ‘renewed certification’ of the movie in 1978. The video of the songs of this movie also seems to be available for all which has come up in recent years. The video of the movie is uploaded five years back).

Sharda is the singer of the song. Lyrics are by Asad Bhopali and music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Let us now listen to the song …

kuchh dil bhi hai pareshaan
kuchh rooh bhi hai pyaasi
kab tak rahegi aakhir

jo maar ke jilaaye
wo qaatil talaash kar
jo dil ka dard jaan le
wo dil talaash kar r r r
wo dil talaash kar

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
strong># Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Singer – Manna Dey)
——————————————-———————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Bahke Kadam’.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 07.10.2015 when one of its songs was posted on the blog.

While presenting the first song from this movie, I had mentioned that one other song from this movie was available on YouTube. I had also mentioned that this movie seemed to be an obscure movie of its time.

When I was looking for a song sung by Manna Dey from this movie I discovered that the audio of the remaining two songs have also become available on YouTube now. But, the video of this movie or its songs still seems to be unavailable.

‘Behake Kadam-1971’ was a Kalashree, Bombay presentation.

It had Dharmesh Dutt, Aparajita, Madan Puri, Aaga, Jagirdar, Sundar, Sulochana, Mridula, Kanu Roy, Alka P, Sudha Kothari, Yunus Bihari, Chaman Choti, Dhananjay, Satish, Major Sudan, Bijendra, Kailash Dhiman, Sadiq, Anita Sinha, Ramesh Verma, Sharad, Jagmal, Karan Singh, Suresh Sinha, Kajal, Lal ji, S.Sinha, Shankar Mamtora, , Vishnu, Narendra, Prakash, Suraj, Ramkishore, Sitaram, Yasin, L.M.Prabhu, Anand Sharma, and Suparna in a Special Role.

Music of this film was composed by Usha Khanna (assisted by Ashok Khanna).

Dharmesh Dutt penned the lyrics for the four songs in this movie.
Mahendra Kapoor, Mohd Rafi, Usha Khanna and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Lyrics are by Dharmesh Dutt who is also the director and actor in this movie.

Today’s song is a nice song to listen to and it grows upon us if we listen to it a few times.

Only the audio of this song is available.

I would request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 13
——————————————————–

Today 15th November’2022 is the ‘sixty-sixth’ birthday of actor Junior Mehmood.

On this occasion we wish him a very happy and a healthy, wealthy, entertaining and enjoying life ahead.

Junior Mehmood was born as Naeem Sayyad on 15th November’1956 to a ‘middle class family living in Mumbai.
His father was an Engine Driver in railways and the family used to live in the railway quarters at ‘Antop Hill’ Mumbai (as mentioned in the biography of Jr Mehmood available on YT).
Including Naeem they were six siblings – four brothers and two sisters.

Jr. Mehmood started his acting career at the age of eight. Unfortunately, the very first film which he got a chance to work in ‘Kitna Nazook Hai Dil’ (as mentioned by Junior Mehmood himself in an interview available on YT and other sources too) never got released and was shelved.

His first released film was ‘Naunihaal-1967’.

He went on to act in many movies as a child artist from ‘1967’ onwards and was very much popular among people like me who were born and growing during those years of late sixties and early seventies. He was the most loved child artist during those years of end sixties and early seventies or till mid-seventies.

His acting career continued even as an adult actor. However, he didn’t get the same success and adulation in movies as an adult actor what he received as a ‘child artist’.

As a child artist Junior Mehmood achieved a ‘Superstar’ like status then. He got to perform on many songs or rather many songs were picturised on him.

Under this special series we have been enjoying such songs where Junior Mehmood has performed on screen.

So far twelve songs have been presented under this series.

Today we listen to a song from the ‘1971 movie – Khoj’. There will be few more songs coming. Our dear Prakash ji has brought to my notice few songs which he had come across during his daily browsing. I will be presenting the same soon too.

Today I am presenting a song which I come across around four-five years back but had forgotten later.

‘Khoj-1971’ was directed by Jugal Kishore for his home productions ‘Jugal Productions, Bombay’.
It had Farida Jalal, Deepak Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Jayshree T., Bramhachari, M. Rajan, K.N. Singh, Wasti, Kumud Tripathi, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Junior Mehmood, Heera Lal, Hercules, Rajan Kapoor, H. Prakash, Kishan, Bhupendra Kumar, and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.10.1971.

This movie has six songs in it. Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Mahendra Dehlavi – two songs and Asad Bhopali – four songs.

Music for this movie was composed by Usha Khanna.

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog and all of them were posted in the year ‘2009’. So, this movie missed being part of its BTYC three years ago.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Usha Khanna. On screen it is lip synced by Junior Mehmood and Jayshree T (respectively for the voices I guess).

This song is a nice song sung by grateful children for their father (played by actor Wasti I think). Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Heera Lal and others (who, I guess, have kidnapped the father of the children).

This song has two versions – one happy (short version) and one long slow version.
(HFGK mentions this as one song. Also, the lyrics for the happy or fast version are same as the second stanza in the slow version).

Let us now listen to the song …

Happy birthday to Junior Mehmood!!!

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (many moods of Kishore Kumar)
—————————————–

Today’s song is another Kishore Kumar song which I came across recently, on 7th of October 2022 to be exact, when I listened to it on radio (Vividh Bharati). That day was the birthday of Music Director Usha Khanna (born on 07.10.1941).
(She turned eighty-one this 7th October 2022 ).

I was not remembering that either, but I immediately realized it from the other songs (composed by Usha Khanna) played during this program that I was familiar with.

I was not familiar with today’s song. Though, I vaguely remembered that I might have heard it earlier. The whole composition is very nice, and it immediately captivated me as the voice of Kishore Kumar had that special touch he had in his song of seventies. but the song turned out to be from the eighties which I came to know later when I checked for its details.

This song is from the movie ‘Preeti 1986’.

‘Preeti-1986’ was directed by Saawan Kumar for ‘Dunhill Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Anil Agarwal. It had Rajeev Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure, Asha Parekh, Shashikala, Prem Chopra, Shastri, Jamboora, Ramesh Oswal, Baby Sucheta and others.

Story of this movie was written by Saawan Kumar. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Kamleshwar.
This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.03.1986.

This movie had eight soundtracks released including one music track and seven songs.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Manmohan Singh, Usha Khanna, Rajeev Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today we are going to listen to this melodious song from this movie composed by Usha Khanna. (Other songs from this movie are also interesting and one of them is going to follow soon on the blog 🙂 ).

Lyrics for today’s song are by Saawan Kumar.

Music is composed by Usha Khanna, arguably one of the most successful of few female music directors’ that Hindi film industry has. The other two being Jaddan Bai, and Saraswati Devi.

Usha Khanna has been the most successful of the female music directors and she has given us many unforgettable songs to enjoy with. I am a big fan of her music and many of her compositions are in my list of most favourites of HFM.

Let us now enjoy today’s wonderful song …

With today’s song this movie ‘Preeti-1986’ makes its debut on the blog today …

Recently I am coming across many Kishore Kumar songs which he sung, and which are from the movies of eighties. I am trying to bring such songs here for the listening pleasure of our readers and reviving the memory of such songs and movies here.

Sometimes I feel that I may have missed listening to the many good songs of Kishore Kumar sun in the 1980s( except the songs he sang for Rajesh Khanna during that period).

Over to today’s song now …

“Faislaa”(1965) was produced and directed by Jugal Kishore for Jugal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Shaikh Mukhtar, L.Vijayalaxmi, Jugal Kishore, Jagdeep, Jagdev, Sulochana Chatterji, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Sabina, Ravikant, S.K.Shukla,  Ashita Puri, Baby Premlata, Haroon, Sheela, Meherbanoo, Ajit, Soni, V.Soni, Bam Lahri, Lalchand, Jagdish, R.L.Soni, Ashok,Shakti Sabharwal, S.L.Sharma, Helen, V.K.Sabherwal, Kishen Sharma, Golly, Ram Kumar, Khrushid, G.S.Gaija, Surinder Sharma,  Nazir Kashmiri,  S.K.Joshi,  Kapoor, Sadiq etc in it.

“Faislaa”(1965) was later remade as “Dada”(1978) with changed cast and that movie, unlike “Faisla”(1965) turned out to be a surprise hit.

Failure of “Faislaa”(1965) was because its casting was not to public liking. Jagdeep, a quintessential comedian, was cast as hero (same role as essayed by Vind Mehra in “Dada”(1978) and that sealed the fate of “Faislaa”(1965).

“Faislaa”(1965) had seven songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Faislaa”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Khanna and chorus. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is lip synced by L Vijaylaxmi. She is accompanied by several female dancers singing in chorus. One can identify Edwina and Manjula among them. Jugal Kishore and Jagdeep are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Greetings and Happy Birthday wishes to Usha Khanna ji.

Born this day in 1941, she is all of 81 years old today. With a reign lasting from 1959 to 2003, she may be the most prolific and accomplished lady music director in the Hindi film industry. In the early decades of Hindi cinema, we have been earlier introduced to lady music directors viz., Bibbo, Jaddan Bai and Saraswati Rane. Then after a gap of maybe a decade, the teenaged Usha Khanna (she was 18 years when ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ was released in 1959) made her debut.

And the audience and the industry took notice of this new and attractive sound of music. After a slow beginning, she went on to become one of the mainline music directors in the industry. Over the period of about four and a half decade, she has composed music for more than 160 films. Her last film was released on 2003 – ‘Dil To Pardesi Hai’. We do not see more films from her after this, although technically she has not formally announced her retirement from an active career.

The song that I bring up today is from the 1964 film ‘Awaara Baadal’. This is a song performed on screen by Helen. And true to the spirit of this fabulous danseuse, the composition is so lilting and magical. On screen we see a dance being  performed by Helen and a group of supporting dancers. The performance is being viewed by Niranjan Sharma.

The lyrics of the song have been penned by Javed Anwar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

A quick reminder for the readers, regarding the lyricist. Javed Anwar is a pseudonym for a team of two songwriters working together. Javed is the name that is used by Manohar Khanna, who is the father of Usha Khanna in real life. And Anwar is the pen name of the second songwriter – Raheel Gorakhpuri.

Wishing Usha ji for good health and many more such celebrations to come.

I invite you to listen to this foot tapping melody that is so apt for a Helen dance song.

Song – Dil To Niraala Hi Sharaabi Hai (Awaara Baadal) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Javed Anwar, MD – Usha Khanna

Today (5 July 2022) is the 5100th day for the blog.

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17034

Regulars may have noticed lack of activity in the blog on my part for the last ten odd days. From June 25 till June 28, 7 posts were published and all these articles were posted by Sudhir jee. I had specifically requested him on 24 June 2022 that “it will be difficult for me to find time for publishing new posts from 24 june till 27 June. So I request you to uphold the blog flag for these four days.”

Sudhir jee had promised to do the needful, viz ensuring that we had at least one post on each of these days. He ended up publishing four posts on 27 June 2022, prompted by an over-enthusiastic Avinash Scrapwala, who sent many RD Burman write ups on that day for publication. 🙂

I was extremely busy from the evening of 23 June till noon of 28 June. I was journeying throughout these days, crisscrossing various places, never staying in one place for more than one day. I was in mission mode to achieve mission critical tasks where Icould not afford to fail.

What exactly were there mission critical tasks ?

Convocation ceremony of 2016 batch of MBBS students of LTMMC was to take place on 24 June. As proud parents of our daughter who was among the one hundred plus MBBS students successfully completing their course and internship from LTMMC (Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical college), I and my wife obviously had to be present in Mumbai on this occasion. I took an evening flight from Gorakhpur to Mumbai on 23 june and arrived Mumbai at around 9 PM. My wife, who was at Bhopal, took an evening train (Punjab Mail) at Rani Kamlapati and arrived Mumbai on the morning of 24 June.

The convocation ceremony took place at the iconic Shanmukhananda auditorium of Mumbai, which is located close to LTMMC in Sion, Mumbai. I had read about this famous auditorium many times. Many well known cultural programs have taken place in this auditorium. Portraits of some legendary artists hang on the walls of the auditorium.

The convocation ceremony, which was supposed to start at 10 AM, started late, after 12 noon. The 2700 plus seat capacity auditorium was full of relatives of the students. While there were many from Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, several sets of parents and relatives had come from all over India, and some from abroad as well.

The 14 dignitaries (including six ladies) who were welcomed and seated on the dais were the “who is who” of medical fraternity in Mumbai.

The function was not a boring affair. These convocations held at Mumbai are very much like the film city functions, full of songs and dances. The students entered the hall dancing to some new popular Hindi movie songs, which I was obviously oblivious of. 🙂 They then took their seats in the front rows of the auditorium.

All the 14 dignitaries gave their speeches. That was followed by the function where individual students were called by name and handed over their certificates, medals etc. It was quite filmy ishtyle program. The name of the student and his/her details would be announced. Then a filmy song would play and the student would make a grand entry on the stage, dancing to that tune. Most of these tunes were new (unfamiliar to me), but I was happy to note that some of the students danced to the tunes of 1970s and 1980s Hindi movie songs as well. 🙂

The medals and certificate distribution went on till after 2 PM. then it was lunch break. After lunch break, four videos, prepared and shot by the students themselves, that showed their stay during these years in the college, were played. My daughter was co producer, director, (and actor too) in one of these videos. 🙂

It was evening when the gala function finally came to a close. The hectic and satisfying day had passed, but another hectic day awaited the two of us the next day. I and my wife had to catch an early morning flight to Gorakhpur the next day (25 June 2022).

We checked in to a hotel near the airport on the night of 24 June. We woke up at 4 AM in the morning and left for the airport. The flight was at 6 AM. We arrived Gorkhpur before time at 8 AM on 25 June which was a Saturday. After arriving at home, I (rather my wife), got busy in the task that was upon us. 90 % of the household items, including the car had already been sent to Bhopal in February 2022. The remaining items were now required to be packed and loaded on a truck to be dispatched to Bhopal. This work is normally done by professional packers, but my wife does it herself.

The truck was dispatched in the afternoon. Then we went to the gas agency and surrendered the gas connection.

The most important ‘item’ that we needed to shift was not luggage, but the two pets, namely Bhole and Izza. The cat had been shifted to Bhopal in February and that was less challenging because the cat went in our car along with wife and daughter. Taking the dogs by car for 1000 km was out of question because the car was no longer there in Gorakhpur. Moreover, the junior dog, Izza, is a very poor road traveller and she gets sick at the prospect of a road travel.

Fortuitously, there was one direct train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal the very next morning (26 June 2022). It is the only train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal that has an AC first coach in it. According to Railway rules, dogs can be taken either in dog box kept in Guard van (an unrealistic rule) or in AC first coach, if fellow passengers do not object. The best way to eliminate fellow passengers’ objection is to ensure that we book a two berth coupe (there are two such coupes in AC first coach). I had asked my staff to sound out the person who allots berths in the train including AC first that we should be allotted a two berth coupe.

But that is not all. Dogs are needed to be booked on the train. You need to have health certificate for them issued by a vet who certifies that they are fit to travel by train. That certificate is produced at the parcel office along with owners’ ticket and ID proof. Then a ticket is issued for the dogs allowing then to travel by train. Mostly, this booking of pets takes place one hour before the train has to start and the pets must be presented at the booking office. But that was a very challenging scenario. Gorakhpur Railway station is a very vast Railway station. The parcel booking office is in platform number one, whereas the train leaves from platform number nine. The two platforms are like two terminals of Mumbai Airport. So I sent my staff to convince the parcel officials to issue the pets documents earlier, if possible.

Next morning, my staff, who had reached the station at 5 AM, phoned me informing me that the tickets for the pets had been booked. Booked without taking the pets to the parcel office ! That was a big relief. So we directly reached at platform nine. There is a road running parallel to the platform. So we reached close to our coach and boarded the train along with the pets and luggage.The staff who had got the pets ticket booked handed me the document. I profusely thanked the staff, but failed to notice that the ticket price was Rs 400/-. However, I paid the money to the staff later.

After some initial discomfiture, both dogs, including Izza made themselves comfortable. Bhole, as is his wont being a down to earth dog, preferred to sit down on the floor. I made Izza sit on the lower berth and she soon made herself comfortable there, much to our relief.

Though we had sent most of our luggage earlier, but subsequently my wife discovered some more items that needed to be carried with us. So our luggage had become considerable. In Gorakhpur, the staff took care of carrying the luggage. I needed similar help at Bhopal. So I phoned the mechanical officer at Bhopal and requested for the help of his staff in carrying my luggage. The train arrived Bhopal before time at 8:40 PM (scheduled arrival time was 8:55 PM). The luggage and pets were deboarded.

Our daughter, after her convocation on 24 June had taken a morning flight to Bhopal on 25 June. She was to receive us at Bhopal. All the luggage and the two pets were somehow accommodated in the car. Izza, whom I was holding in the front passenger seat was putting up a stiff fight. Somehow I managed to restrain her while we arrived at the home. So our pets were successfully transported from Gorakhpur to Bhopal.

Next morning (27 June), the daughter had to go back to Mumbai. She drove the car herself to the airport. In the return direction, I drove the car back to the home. By the time we arrived home and had our breakfast etc, the daughter had already reached Mumbai. 🙂

I had my train back towards Gorakhpur in the afternoon. The train got delayed by about three hours. I boarded the train in the evening instead of afternoon, and arrived Gorakhpur at noon of 28 June, instead of morning.

If I was busy till morning on 28 June, the other engagements for the next three days were even more important. It is just that I did not have to travel on these days.

The residence items had all been sent. So I needed some other accommodation at Gorakhpur. I had already booked a transit accommodation room in a Railway Officers rest house. I went there. After getting ready, I went to office and sent the quarter vacation memo to the concerned officials. I asked my staff to find out all the clearances that are required to be taken and to take them promptly. It turned out that clearances from five different departments (electricity, telephone etc.) is needed. My staff got busy arranging for these clearances, while I got busy doing things that needed my presence.

Though we had submitted the gas cylinders and regulator two days earlier, but papers were not given on that day because the dealer was unavailable. I went to the gas agency and waited for an hour before the concerned person arrived and I could take the relevant document with me.

In the evening, there was one get together in the Railway Museum in my honor. Looking at my hectic schedule, the organizers of the function were wondering whether I would be able to attend this function. I managed to attend it. When I was asked to give a speech on the occasion, I gave a long speech, all extempore of course.

The next day, viz 29 June 2022 was rather sedate by comparison as there were no pressing engagements on that day. There was one function in the evening where my staff working directly under me honored me. There too I gave one extempore speech. My contents in this speech were different from my speech of 28 June 2022. 🙂

The next date, viz 30 June 2022 was the all important day. More than the day, I was interested in the next day, the pehli taareekh,viz 1 July 2022, when I had an early morning train to Bhopal. It was the same train in which we had transported our pets from Gorakhpur to Bhopal on 26 June 2022.

I spent the morning of 30 June 2022 packing my stuff. I was under strict instructions from my wife not to leave anything behind, not to misplace anything, and complete my packing well in advance etc. I was trying to do all that but as always, I had to leave my packing till last moment, even though my train was early morning on 1 July 2022.

In the office, I tried to clean up my stuff from almirahs, computers etc. In the computer I had logged in to my accounts of WordPress, Gmail, Office365 etc. I tried to log off from most of them but I ran out of time.

There was a function in the afternoon in HQ meeting hall headed by AGM (Additional General Manager). It was followed by a function in our own mechanical department.

Final program of the day was organised in Railway Officers club at night. Officers and their spouses were present in good number on the occasion. It was organised to honor four people including me. After cultural programs, it was time for speeches. When it was time for my speech, I gave another extempore speech. It was a lighthearted speech containing fun facts that was well received by the audience. I also mentioned the song blog towards the end of my speech. I mentioned that I had a Hindi movie songs related site called Atul Song A Day, ASAD in short. Till today, it was ASAD Gorakhpuri, from tomorrow it will be ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

The speeches were followed by dinner. Some of the guests complimented me for my witty speech, which I had thought up at the spur of the moment.

The club day was over at 10:30 PM. I went back to rest house, tried to complete the packing, but I could see that some packing could only be done at the last moment. I set alarm for 4 AM in my mobile and tried to go to sleep.

It was the alarm that woke me up. Then I realized that I had to get ready for the early morning train. I took bath, packed the remaining stuff, and checked to see that nothing was left behind. The car driver was supposed to arrive at 5 :30 AM. My luggage was all packed. All dues of all people (milkman, newsman, the person who booked my pets) were paid. My mobile which gets discharge very fast was plugged in for charging.

The car arrived. I got the stuff loaded in the car, handed over the key to the reception, and left for the station. Halfway towards the station, I pressed my left pant pocket and realized that my mobile was not there. I had forgotten the mobile back in the room. I asked the driver to turn back, the key was again taken from reception. The mobile, plugged in the power socket, was taken along with the charger. Heaving a big sigh of relief, I restarted for the station.

The train, unlike on 26 June 2022, started late. This train kept getting delayed because it went from a much longer diverted route and that took seven hours longer to reach Bhopal. The train, that was supposed to arrive Bhopal at 8:55 PM on 1 July arrived Bhopal at 4:20 AM on 2 July 2022. My luggage had become sizable and I needed to help of Railway staff this time too. The staff arrived to carry my luggage after I had already unloaded them from the train. Just as I was thinking that I may have to wait, I found my wife entering the platform. So, she had arrived to receive me, along with her sister this time. All the luggage was easily accommodated in her sister’s MUV and we left for the Bhopal home. We arrived there when it was early morning.

Why all these hectic activities ? “Blame” my birthday for this which took place on 20 June. That birthday, unlike the previous birthdays meant that it was finally time to say goodbye to Railway service. In other words, I was to retire on 30 June 2022. All the hectic engagements and functions were being held for that reason.

I am very happy and relieved that I managed to overcome all the logistical challenges successfully without any failure anywhere. It was quite a logistical challenge and it took some meticulous planning and co operation of many that led to successful executions of all the plans that were laid out.

To cut a long story short, with effect from 1 July 2022, I am a retired person settled in Bhopal. So this blog is now officially ASAD Bhopali. 😀

Today (5 July 2022) happens to be the 5100th day for the blog. It is an appropriate occasion for me to break this news to the readers of the blog. 🙂

On this occasion, I have chosen a song from ‘Sher e Watan’ (1971). It was directed by Harbans for New Sunrise Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Dara Singh, Nishi, Rajan Haksar, Nadira, Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Bhagwan, Roopali, Pal Sharma, Dhanraj, Saudagar Singh, Prakash, Trilok Singh, Uma Khosla, Bramhachari etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has already been covered in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. The song is picturised on two females where one plays the role of a male by attaching a thin mustache under her nose.

Usha Khanna is the music director. The main reason why I chose this song is that it is penned by Asad Bhopali. 😀

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This rarely heard song is a song that grows on you as you get exposed to this song.

It is a nice feeling to be able to join the club of our seniors. Hopefully I will be able to have an active and fruitful second innings like them. 🙂

Lyrics

zara humse milo
zara humse milo
humse milo humse milo jaan
zara humse milo
humse milo humse milo jaan
dekho to dil mein hain kya kya armaan
zara humse milo
zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan
zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan
dekhen to dil mein hain kya kya armaan
zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan

malika e husn
bahaaron ki haseen shehzaadi
chaand ka noor
sitaaron ki haseen shehzaadi
aao in champai honthon ko gulaabi kar den
aao in nargisi aankhon ko sharaabi kar den
in jhuki jhuki nazron pe dil kurbaan
ho jhuki jhuki nazron pe dil kurbaan
humse milo
humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan

honth kuchch aur bhi kaanpenge gulaabi hoke
aankh kuchch aur bhi behkengi sharaabi hoke
zulf ki chhaanv mein
is raat ko dhal jaane do
pyaar ki aag mein
do jismon ko jal jaane do
aaj nahin khwaabon mein dil e naadaan
aaj nahin khwaabon mein dil e naadaan
zara humse milo
hey zara humse milo
humse milo humse milo jaan

aag kuchch aur bhi bhadkegi
galey mil mil ke
ik mulaakaat mein niklenge na armaan dil ke
zindagi ab inhin baahon mein basar karna hai
pyaar hi pyaar hamen
shaam o sahar karna hai
tum bhi yahi waada karo
mere meharbaan
tum bhi yahi waada karo
mere meharbaan
zara humse milo
hey zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan
dekhen to dil mein hain kya kya armaan
zara humse milo

zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan
dekho to dil mein hain kya kya armaan
zara humse milo
humse milo
humse milo jaan

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Daadaa-1978#
——————————————

If we look at the statistics of the movies released in the decade of seventies i.e., 1971-1980, and the total number of songs, the count as per HFGK is around eight thousand songs from 1327 movies ( including 1243 released movies+ Unreleased movies + movies in other languages of the ‘Hindi Belt’ of India).
Out of these eight thousand plus songs we have so far covered 2586 songs on the blog. That is not even near the half-way mark, and it means that we still have a long way to go to bring all the songs of this decade (1971-980) on the blog.

It would be interesting to know year-wise movies released and movies introduced on the blog, and the movies yet to be introduced on the blog. We are certainly going to have these statistics in the future posts on the blog. Till now we have done this exercise for the years ‘1971’ and ‘1972’.

We might have covered many of the popular songs of this era on the blog and there might also be many ‘surprises’ yet to come on the blog. The remaining songs from such movies i.e., the songs other than the most well-known songs yet to be posted on the blog would also have some ‘surprises’ which we are yet to listen to and enjoy.

For instance, take the case of today’s movie which is ‘Daadaa-1978’. It was one of the successful movies of ‘1979’ (I guess it was released in the theatres in end 1978 or in early 1979. It was passed by Censor Board on 30.11.1978).

Two most well-known songs from this movie which are ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke muskuraa ke chal diye’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’ have been posted on the blog. Ever since, this movie is waiting for its third song to appear on the blog and this wait has become more than ten years long.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie which is a beautiful reminder of the music of the ‘seventies’. I landed on this song via other song from the same movie. When I read the title of this (today’s) song it didn’t ring any bells, but when I listened to the song, I immediately recalled that I had heard this song before. This song was a popular enough song of its days.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and younger brothers. I didn’t remember this movie completely now except for few of its’ songs. But our favourites then were ‘gaddi jaandi hai chhalaangaa maar di’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’. I remember I didn’t like this song ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke’ then and it was very irritating to hear it on radio or around on loudspeakers. However, this song brought the ‘Filmfare’ award of ‘Best Male Playback Singer to Yesudas and it was on number ten in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala of 1979’.

“Daadaa-1978” was directed by Jugal Kishore for ‘Jugal Productions Combine, Bombay’.
Jugal Kishore was also the producer of this movie.

It had Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami, Shashi Puri, Madhu Malini, Amjad Khan, Indrani Mukherjee, Jayshree T., Jeevan, Seema Deo, Ramesh Deo, Jagdeep, Rajendra Nath, Raza Murad, Satyen Kappu, Vijaya Choudhary, Mohan Choti, Maruti, Mohan Shery, Sheikh, Baby Pallavi, Coka Cola, Ramavatar, Shyam Kumar, Ratan Gaurang, Manmauji and many others.

Story of this movie was written by Dr. Hari Zutshi and screenplay was written by Aryan and Tejnath Zar.
Tejnath Zar also wrote the dialogues for this movie.

Editing of this movie was done by Y.G. Chavan.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.11.1978.

This movie had five songs- all written by five different lyricists viz. Asad Bhopali, Ravindra Jain, Kulwant Jani, Mahendra Dehalvi, Gauhar Kanpuri.
(I think that using the five separate lyricists for five songs surely paid of for this movie as all of them turned out to be good compositions).

Music for this movie was composed by Usha Khanna.

Mohd Rafi, Yesudas, Shailendra Singh, Hemlata, Dilraj Kaur, and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Gaddi jaandi ae chhalaangaa maardi Rafi, Shailendra Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Hemlata Ravindra Jain
02 Dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye Yesudas Kulawant Jani 14.07.2009
03 Hamne maana hampe sajan jobanwa bharpoor hai Suman Kalyanpur Mahendra Dehalvi Being covered today
04 Allah karam karna, maula tu reham karna Suman Kalyanpur Gauhar Kanpuri 16.12.2011
05 Bemurawwat tumhe samjhenge zamaanewaale … parde mein koyi Rafi, Shailendra Singh Asad Bhopali

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and is a ‘mujra’ song highly enjoyable and having a catchy tune. On screen it is Jayshree T. performing on this song and we can see Amjad Khan and Jeevan and others in the picturisation of this song.

(Incidentally I am coming across many Jayshree T. songs nowadays and have shared some of them recently on the blog 😊 )

This movie also brough a Filmfare award to Amjad Khan in the category of ‘Best Supporting actor’.

However, it was Amjad Khan’s performance which was the highlight of this movie with other ‘ingredients’ like the story, presentation of it on screen, catchy music and with screen presence of other actors like Vinod Mehra, Shashi Puri, Bindiya Goswami, Madhu Malini and others making this movie a perfect ‘blend’ of action, romance, friendship, and entertainment to watch on the big screen. And this movie ranked on number fifteen among the highest grossing Hindi movies of ‘1979’ (as per IMDB).

I am not going into the detail of the story of this movie as Atul ji and Sudhir ji has covered a lot about the movie in their write-ups while presenting the songs ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke muskuraa ke chal diye’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’ on the blog.

Let us now enjoy the today’s peppy number which I think is inspired from a ‘Bhojpuri song’. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Mahendra Dehalvi.

The engrossing voice in the today’s song is of Suman Kalyanpur and music is by Usha Khanna.

Enjoy the entertaining music of the ‘seventies’ 😊 which I am sure will take many of us to down memory lane …

Song-Hamne maana hampe saajan jobanwa bharpoor hai (Daada)(1978) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Mahendra Dehalvi, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

hamne maana hampe saajan
jobanwaa bharpoor hai ae
hamne maana hampe saajan
jobanwaa bharpoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai

saal solvaa laaga hamko
ee to ham bhi jaanat hai
hamri bagiyaa mahke phoolwaa
ee to ham bhi maanat hai
chingaari se aag bhaye ham
sach ee baat zaroor hai ae
chingaari se aag bhaye ham
sach ee baat zaroor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai

daar ke kajraa
khaa ke gilauri
ham jis ore nikal jaayen
thhan jaaye hai deewaanon mein
chakku chhuriyaan chal jaaye
saara shahar hai aashiq hamraa
hamkaa bahut garoor hai ae
saara shahar hai aashiq hamraa
hamkaa bahut garoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai

pehle gaunaa karwaayile
phir sun meethhi batiyaan
sabka thhengaa dikhlaayike
lag gayi hai tohri chhatiyaan
abhoo paas na aao hamre
abhoo dilli door hai ae
abhoo paas na aao hamre
abhoo dilli door hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai

hamne maana hampe saajan
jobanwaa bharpoor hai ae
hamne maana hampe saajan
jobanwaa bharpoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
ee to mahimaa raam ki
ee maa hamra ka kasoor hai
