In my younger days, I used to identify Hyderabad with Nizams. For me Hyderabad and Nizamshahi were inseparable in the city’s history, developments and monuments. The establishment of Osmania University is one example among others of the contributions of Nizams in this region. It was only when I visited Hyderabad for the first time on a sightseeing trip in 1989, I became aware of the role of Qutub Shahi (also written as Qutb Shahi) dynasty in the development of Hyderabad. Of the 7 Sultans of Qutub Shahi dynasty that ruled from Golconda and later from Hyderabad, the reign of 5th Sultan, Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah was regarded as the golden period. During his rule, Charminar was constructed and a new capital across Musi River called Bhagnagar and later renamed as Hyderabad was established.

Purandara Dasa (148O- 1564) who is regarded as the father of Carnatic music was born in Karnataka. I find it somewhat paradoxical that Karnataka, the birthplace of the father of Carnatic music is also the birthplace of some of the most distinguished vocalists of Hindustani classical music. Most of them were born in the North Karnataka region. The prominent Hindustani vocalists from North Karnataka were Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (Gadag), Pandit Kumar Gandharv (Belgaum), Pandit Mallikarjun Mansur (Mansur, Dharwad), Sawai Gandharv (Dharwad), Gangubai Hangal (Dharwad), Shobha Gurtu (Belgaum), Pandit Dinkar Kaikini (Kaikini, Uttar Kannada) etc.

‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubeida’ (2OO1) were films of Muslim trilogy directed by Shyam Bengal. The main feature of these three films was that they were all woman oriented films based on real life stories. These films belonged to what is labelled as parallel cinemas. I have watched all the three films. Why these films are called trilogy? Let us go through in brief, the stories of each of the main characters in these films.

About six weeks ago, the request for this song appeared on the Reader’s Farmaishes page. The request has been put in by Dr. Mona Shah. And the song itself I believe does not need any introductions. An iconic song that hit the radiowaves in 1981, was a rage with teenagers and young people of that era and beyond. The film Kalyug (1981) has just this one song, and this song has become a cult icon all by itself. But there is also a tribulation that is attached with this song. It is rare.

I am not much aware about the movies and songs of 1990s and later. So when it comes to discussing the movies and songs from these movies, I am in unfamiliar territory. When I needs to discuss songs sung by Jagjit Singh (8 feb 1941-10 oct 2011), I need the help of those regulars who are failiar with such movies and their music in which Jagjit Singh figured. I am extremely thankful to Prakashchandra who promptly sent me the lyrics of a few songs (as well as details about these songs and their movies).
