Today’s song is from film Tara-49. The cast of the film was Majnu, Kuldip Kaur, Jawahar kaul, Shyama,Nayantara, Chand Burke etc etc. This is a duet song sung by Satish Batra and Premlata. Aziz Kasmiri’s songs were composed by the melody master Vinod. The film was directed by R D Parinja.

I like to discuss less heard and not so famous films, because it gives me an opportunity to dig out information on the forgotten small time and big time artistes of yore. Some of the names are not even heard by the new generation and no wonder. That way, older film buffs of my age group (75 to 80) are not aware of the new and current Bollywood superstars- even if they are very popular and famous. With films making(rather raking) business in crores these days ( anything between 100 to 200 crores), every alternate actor is a superstar for a period of 2 to 3 years !

TARA-1949 was truly an obscure film,because when it was released,for unknown reasons,it went off the theatres within a week’s time and never came for even a second run,like other movies.
All my efforts to see this film came to a nought. I was keen to see this film,as its MD was VINOD,who had become popular due to the immortal Lara Lappa song from EK THI LADKI-49.

This film had 12 songs. Vinod had a penchant for giving chance to new/less known singers in his films. Thus Vinata Amladi(Dilli se aaya bhai Tingu fame) and Gandhari (Rane),Meenal Wagh, Satish Batra etc got opportunities in film world. In the 12 songs of the film Vinod had used as many as 7 singers-
Gandhari (Rane), Premlata, Uma Devi(Tun Tun), Raj kumari, Geeta Roy, Hameeda Bano and Satish Batra-the only male singer.

Vinod had another(good) habit. He liked to have atleast 1 or 2 fun songs in his films.In this film also there were 2 fun songs.

1. Mithhaai ki dukaan meri Dilli ke baazaar mein(Taara) Gandhari(Rane) and
2. Pyaar karna ho to yaaron kar lo teliphoon(Taara) Satish Batra and Rajkumari.

The director of this film was Mr.R.D.Parinja. He started his career as a Cinematographer in Bombay Talkies in its haydays.
He filmed Izzat, Prem kahani, Jeevan Prabhat,and Savitri-all 37 films, and then Kangan,Azaad,Jhoola,Bandhan,Naya sansar and Kismet.
When he was in Bombay Talkies,the German pair of Director Franz Osten and Cinematographer Joseph Wirsching were also there. He must have learnt a lot from them(or did he ?).

When Parinja left Bombay Talkies in its waning bad times he tired to produce and Direct films on his own.
first it was Sona Chandi-46 and then it was Tara-49.
After Tara,the film and the producer/Director disappeared into obscurity for ever.

Jawahar Kaul was the Hero of the film and the Heroine was not Shyama ( she was still a struggling artiste doing titbit roles) but Kuldip Kaur in this film. This was one of the few films where she was Heroine. Otherwise she was a perfect Vamp in films. Her life story is different . Saadat Hasan Manto has written several pages on her in his book ” Dastavez”-Volume 5 and as his wont was, it was not a flattering description of Kuldip.

Kuldip Kaur was born sometime in 1927 and brought up like a princess. Her spoiled Sardar husband wanted his wife to be like a modern westernized lady. He wanted his wife to learn swimming and rub shoulders with the club-going English elite based in Lahore and Amritsar.Once exposed to the club culture, Kuldip Kaur also started getting a taste of its dark side.

Since Lahore was a film city, Kuldip Kaur started dreaming about becoming a film actress. According to one story, Kuldip Kaur started admiring the professional qualities of actor Pran Nath, who was in film acting in Lahore since 1940, when he successfully performed the role of a hero in Punjabi film “Yamla Jutt” (The Simple Peasant).

By July and August of 1947, communal violence erupted into a full-fledged exercise in ethnic cleansing, with Muslims on one side and Sikhs and Hindus on the other. Both Lahore and Amritsar were engulfed in the worst sectarian violence in recent history.

Both Pran and Kuldip Kaur were made to leave Lahore in a jiffy, leaving virtually every belonging behind. Her own village being right on the border was also not peaceful. So Kuldip Kaur left straight for Bombay. According to one story, in order to impress Pran, Kuldip Kaur
decided to bring Pran’s stranded car from Lahore to Bombay. In a gesture of unprecedented daredevilry, she travelled from the safety of Amritsar to Lahore and drove Pran’s car first to Amritsar and then all the way to Bombay, where she handed over
the keys to a surprised but grateful Pran.

After leaving for Bombay, Kuldip Kaur’s contact with her parents and in-laws got diminished. On arrival in Bombay, Kuldip Kaur made up her mind to plunge headlong into the film industry. She was prepared to act in Hindi/Urdu as well as Punjabi films. The experts of film industry were of the opinion that her large piercing eyes and her flat chin made her an ideal choice for the role of a vamp.
The first ranking heroines of the time included Naseem Bano, Madhubala, Nargis, Suraiya and Nutan. Other heroines included Binarai, Shyama, Nimmi, Nirupa Roy, Meena Shori, Nigar Sultana, Veena and Kamini Kaushal. There was a shortage of ladies willing to perform the role of vamps.
One of Kuldip Kaur’s first films was a Punjabi blockbuster “Chaman” (1948). Within the same year Kuldip Kaur acted in two Hindi/Urdu films “Ziddi” and “Grahasthi“. All her 1948 films did well. After that she never looked back and went from strength to strength. At one stage Kuldip
Kaur was so busy in her film roles that for a long duration she did not visit Punjab.

In 1949, Kuldip Kaur worked in at least two films “Ek Thi Ladki” and “Kaneez”. “Ek Thi Ladki” was a blockbuster. Music Director Vinod composed some great tunes for this movie. “Kaneez” did not do too well.In 1950, Kuldip Kaur acted in two great musical Hindi movies “Samadhi” and “Adhi Raat” and did two Punjabi movies “Madaari” and “Chhai”. 1951 was a great year for her: she played the roles of vamps in six movies – “Stage”, “Rajput”, “Nai Zindagi”, “Ek Nazar”, “Afsana” and “Mukhra”. Her role in film “Afsana” received critical acclaim.
1952 was another great year for Kuldip Kaur. She worked in four movies – “Shisham”, “Nau Bahar”, “Baiju Bawra” and “Anjaam”. Again her role was highly praised in what became an all-time classic, “Baiju Bawra”. In 1953 again, Kuldip Kaur had four films – “Mashooka”, “Baaz”, “Anarkali” and “Aabshar”. Of these, “Anarkali” was a super hit and her role stole the limelight. 1954 proved another great year. She was featured in three movies – “Lal Pari”, “Gul Bahar” and “Daak Babu”. 1955 was one of her busiest professional years. She played the bad girl’s role in “Teer Andaz”, “Miss Coca Cola”, “Mast Qalandar” and “Jashan”.

In 1956, things slowed down a bit. She worked in two films, but none was released. Two of Kuldip Kaur starrers spilled over into the new year and were released in 1957. These were “Sheroo” and “Ek Saal”. In 1958 Kuldip Kaur had her roles in two films “Sahara” and “Panchyat”. In 1959, she did three films – “Pyaar Ka Rishta”, “Mohar” and “Jagir”. Out of these, one film, “Mohar,” was a great musical. Its music composed by Madan Mohan was simply outstanding. When Kuldip had fewer Hindi films in hand, she worked in Punjabi films.
1960 started as a reasonably good year for Kuldip Kaur. She had a Hindi film, “Maa Baap,” and a Punjabi film, “Yamla Jutt”.But during this very year, her life was cut short when she got some thorns in her feet and legs and she pulled those out by herself. True to her character of a daredevil woman, she did not seek medical advice immediately. Her sores became not only septic, but she contracted tetanus too, which was then incurable.

Kuldip Kaur died on 3rd February 1960. She worked in 69 films.

Jawahar kaul was one Hero, about whom not much is written about. That is because hardly any of his film was famous, nor was he known for his acting prowess or good looks like say Karan Dewan or Bharat Bhushan. I remember him in films like Khidki-48, Dekh kabira roya-57 and Bhabhi-57. Jawahar Kaul was born into a Nehru family on the 27th of September in the year 1927 in the place once revered as the heaven of India – Srinagar, Kashmir. When Jawahar was six days old, his grandfather’s sister adopted him, and his surname was subsequently changed to Kaul. Kaul did his Intermediate from the Punjab University and then went to the town of Rawalpindi. After spending some time there, he decided to go to Mumbai. His parents were not in favour of it and hence he convinced them that he would complete his graduation from the Pune University. He had a deep attraction for films from an early age and hence wanted to try his luck in the industry. In the 1940s, Dadar had three studios – Ranjit, Shri Sound and Supreme and hence was the epicenter of Indian cinema. Jawahar made Dadar his address.
He was always short on money as his family wasn’t aware of his venture into cinema. He often slept at the studio of Prabha Pictures. Due to his Kashmiri background – his looks, complexion, height were impressive, and he started getting work soon. Jawahar started his career doing minor roles. He used to potray supporting characters in big films. He made his debut while playing actor Kishor Sahu’s younger brother in the 1945’s ‘Veer Kunal’. In this year, he was seen in the role of ‘Humayun Mahawat’ in ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ which was made by Sohrab Modi. His first main lead role was in the flick ‘Khidki’ which was made in 1948. He was paired with Rehana for the same.

In Dadar, he became good friends with Radhakishan Mehra. Mehra used to live in the Lallubhai Mansion where Dada Bhagwan and Prabha Shankar Yagnik, ( brother of stunt film actor Navin Yagnik), the production managers of films used to stay too. It wasn’t long when Prabha Shankar and Kaul became good friends and started sharing their apartment. Their trio and friendship became popular in the film circle. Pyarelal Satoshi was friends with Radhakrishnan, and when he became a producer, he cast Kaul in his first movie. Kaul’s debut did average business, but the songs were a hit. Soon Kaul was seen in films like Azadi Ki Raah Par, Apni Chhaya, Kathputli, Pehli Jhalak, Laal Batti, Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, etc. He was a legend of the Black and White Cinema. He was a superstar in the films made in the 1960s. Throughout his career, he worked only in a few selected flicks, but he was able to efficaciously enrapture the audience’s attention.

Jawahar was never happy about his career- the way it went. he had wanted it to be more successful. Anyway after his last film Zalim-1980, he left acting and joined as a Production Manager with Jwala Pictures of Sandeep Sethi. After two years he became his Secretary for the next 17 years. Meanwhile he produced a film-” Agniputra “, with Mithun Chakrawarty. It took a long time to release finally in 2000. Not only it was a flop, it also gave a heavy financial burden on him. However, his only son and producer daughter Shabanam Kapoor repaid everything. Today Jawahar is about 92 years and lives peacefully in Andheri,Mumbai. He looks after his school and college ‘ Children’s welfare Centre, nearby.

Jawahr Kaul acted in 31 films starting from a small role in Geet Govind-1947. I remember his role in my favourite film Dekh kabira Roya-1957.

In film Tara-49, there were two names which need a spotlight on them, because they are not a very popular or well known names. Sometimes a memorable role in a film becomes totally identified with the actor doing it. Many times the role name gets attached to him and he is known by that name popularly. off hand I know atleast two such names. One is ofcourse Gabbar singh. Amjad Khan did that role so intensely that this name became his identity. Second example is Meena Shorey. In her entire life time she was always known as the Lara Lappa Girl…that song from film Ek thi ladki-49 became her second name. There was also a name Bajarbattu, which many readers must have seen in the cast of old films of B and C grades. This was the name of actor Anant Apte, who did the role of Bajarbattu in film Amar jyoti-1936. The name stuck to him and till his last film he was billed as Bajarbattu in every subsequent film.

Similarly actor Majnu’s real name was Harold Lewis, but due to his role in his first film as Hero-Laila Majnu-1935, he became popular as Majnu only, till end of his career. MAJNU-Harold Lewis – was a Punjabi Christian.He was the childhood friend of Roop K.Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film, he chose Harold as a Hero. The film was MAJNU-1935,which was a satirical spoof on the old Laila-Majnu story. There were many stunts and in one scene Majnu is tied up on railway track by the villain. The film became a hit and Harold was renamed MANJU for his film career.

He appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films.He was also doing films with other producers.In 1942 he did a double role in Nishani and in 1943 he directed his first film Paapi. Shorey also gave him a film Badnami-1946 for direction and it was here that Majnu met I.S.Johar who wrote the story and Dialogues of Badnami.

Majnu paired with I.S.Johar in EK THI LADKI-1949,the debut film of Johar.Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films,including the hit HUM SAB CHOR HAIN-1956.

Majnu acted in 77 films,from 1935 to 1966 film Akalmand-also with Johar for the last time.
Majnu directed 8 films including,Paapi-43,Badnami-46,Son of Alibaba-55,Tatar ka chor-55 baghi sardar-56,Chandu-58 etc.

The other less known name was Chand Burke. Chand Burke made her debut in Maheshwari Productions’ Kahan Gaye (1946), which Niranjan wrote and directed. They fell in love on the sets and got married in 1945. Thereafter, Chand appeared in a number of films made in Lahore, and was widely known as “the Dancing Lily of the Punjab.”

Partition and her subsequent migration to Bombay adversely affected her career. After “Hamari Manzil,” which was released in 1949, Chand Burke went into complete oblivion. It was Raj Kapoor who selected her for that important role as children’s tormentor in “Boot Polish,” over 200 other contestants, her screen-test convincing Raj Kapoor that she was a talented actress. Some of her well known films were Basant Bahar-56, yahudi ki beti-56, Adalat-58 and Lajwanti-58.

Chand was the only one in a family of twelve brothers and sisters to have joined the films (her brother S. M. Burke, I.C.S., was a Minister to the Scandina­vian countries for Pakistan). Chand ob­tained judicial separation by mutual consent from her husband, writer-director Niranjan in 1954.

She was also married to Sunder Singh Bhavnani- grandfather of superstar Ranveer Singh. She is also related to Suneeta Kapoor.

She acted in about 30 films. Her last film was Pehchan-72.

Let us now listen to the well tuned duet of Premlata and Satish Batra. this will be the 9th song from this film.

Duniya se nyaare hain khel hamaare
ho o khel hamaare
Duniya se nyaare hain khel hamaare

Blog Day : 3812 Post No. : 14810

Today, the December 25, 2018 is the Remembrance Day of music Director, Eric Roberts akka Vinod (22/05/1922 – 25/12/1959) who left for the heavenly abode on this day of 1959 at a prime age of 37. Vinod has been one of my favourite music directors who mostly followed the ‘Punjabi Ang’ of music, introduced in Hindi films by Pandit Amarnath. He composed top class melodies in Hindi and Punjabi films. His musical career started with ‘Khamosh Nighaaen’ (1946) and composed music for 28 Hindi films till his death in 1959.

Vinod came into prominence in his filmy musical career with his excellent song compositions in ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949). One of songs from this film laara lappa laara lappa laai rakhdaa became very popular. Both Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar sang for Vinod for the first time in this film. Despite this success, he had to share music direction in a few subsequent films with other music directors. Most of such films failed at the box office despite his good music. With this kind of his filmy career, he joined the list of talented music directors who could not sustain their successes to reach in the top bracket of the music directors.

In 1949, music director Shankar-Jaikishan made a successful debut in ‘Barsaat’ (1949). S D Burman had his first major success as a music director in ‘Shabnam’ (1949). Both these music directors consolidated their positions in the Hindi film industry after their first success. One of the main reasons for their long successful careers, in my view, was that both of them were selective in choosing the films, that too from the top banners. As against these, Vinod, after the success of ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949), continued to be mostly associated with ‘B’ grade film banners. Though a few of such films were moderately successful, it was not enough to attract attention from the top banners. In Hindi film industry, if one gets branded as a music director of ‘B’ grade films, it is very difficult to get entry into the top banners.

A few select songs among others composed by Viond are listed below as my favourite:

Song Singer(s) Movie (year)
badla nazar aata hai Satish Batra-Premlata ‘Taara’ (1949)
ye shokh sitaare Lata-Rafi ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949)
taare wohi hain chaand wohi hai Lata ‘Anmol Ratan’ (1950)
kaaga re jaa re jaa re Lata ‘Wafa’ (1950)
nighaahon ko jab aa gayaa musukuraana Sulochana Kadam ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951)
mere barbaadiyon per muskuraane aa gaya koi Lata ‘Sabzbaagh’ (1951)
chupke se na jaa o man ke raaja Asha Bhonsle ‘Aag Ka Dariya’ (1953)
mere dil jhoom zara S Balbir ‘Mumtaz Mahal’ (1957)

Among the male playback singers, who sang for Vinod, Mohammed Rafi topped the list with 33 songs. Among the female playback singers singing for him, Asha Bhonsle took the honour of singing the maximum songs (82).

As a tribute to music director, Vinod, I have selected one of my favourite songs ‘ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do’ rendered by Asha Bhonsle for the film ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951). The film seems to have got delayed as I remember to have seen an advertisement of this film in an old film magazine of 1949 as ‘Titlee’. Probably, at the time of the censor certification, the name of the film was changed to ‘For Ladies Only’. The film was directed by Vedi. The star cast included Kuldeep Kaur, Kamal Mehra, Satish, Sadhana Bose, Rupa Verman etc.

There were 8 songs in the film with 6 lyricists and 8 playback singers. The song under discussion was written in a ghazal format by ‘Sharma’ which I presume to be Buta Ram Sharma. Narendra Sharma never wrote ghazals for the films and Kidar Sharma rarely wrote lyrics for other banners.


Song-Ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do (For Ladies Only)(1951) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ulfat ko phir hai kiska sahaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

bulbul chaman ko chhod bayabaan jaa rahe
bayabaan mein jaa rahen
kaise karoge tum ye gawaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

jinse thhi zindagi wo hi jab gair ho chale
jab gair ho chale
phir aur kaun hoga hamaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

dil ro raha hai apni tasalli ke vaaste
tasalli ke vaaste
jaaye kahaan ye dard ka maara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

Here is the tenth song from “Anmol Ratan”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Nirmala devi. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of the song is available. Nirmala devi(mother of Govinda) appeared in the movie so it can be assumed that the song was picturised on her. Moreover, the lyrics suggest that it was a mujra song. So it is a mujra song picturised on Nirmala devi


Song-Koi kah do balamwa se ut nahin jaaye(Anmol Ratan)(1950) Singer-Nirmala devi, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
jit jaayike more tan aag lagaaye
jit jaayike haan jit jaayike
ho jit jaayike
more tan aag lagaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

daaman mere mein daal na duniya ki daulaten aen
haan

jo inhen pa ke khush rahen
apni to maang ek hai
bolo to hum kahen
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye haaye
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
jit jaayike more tan aag lagaaye
jit jaayike haan jit jaayike
ho jit jaayike
more tan aag lagaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

meri bala se abr ho saawan ki jhadi ho o o
haan aan
shabnam ke motiyon mein kali jhoom rahi ho
meri nazar ke saamne nazaara wahi ho
naynon mein nayna daal piya muskaaye haaye
nayno mein nayna daal piya muskaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

A perusal of the details of the songs covered earlier reveals some interesting facts. The first song from the movie was covered on 15 april 2014 and the fifth song from the movie was covered on 19 july 2014, the day of blog’s sixth anniversary when the countdown to the 10kth song in the blog was in its full flow.

All the five songs from “Mumtaz Mahal”(1956) were covered in 2014 and that left only one more song to be covered. Why we did not cover the sixth and final song in that year itself ?

Well, there are many reasons. One reason is that the idea of covering all songs of movies had not yet caught up in the blog by then. Secondly, those days we covered songs as we came across them. Only five songs from the movie were available and they were all covered. In any case, I was no aware about the number of songs that this movie (or for that matter any movie) contained since I did not have access to HFGK till then.

I became a proud possessor of HFGK a few days after the 10kth song in the blog thanks to the generosity of Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Ji, who gifted me all the five volumes of HFGK on the occasion of this momentous occasion.

Now a days I specifically maintain a list of movies that have only one or two songs left to be covered (by looking up in the HFGK). I keep search for the missing songs. That way I always have a list of YIPPIable movies to chose from.

Coming to “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957), I was under the impression that that two songs from the movie were left to be covered. As mentioned above,, I realised that one of these songs was already covered in the blog (being a duplicate entry), so only one song from the movie remained to be covered.

This missing song, unsurprisingly, was a rare song. Listening to the song made me realise that it is even more rare. For once, it is a solo song sung by Balbir. Now, Balbir has an many as 41 songs in the blog but only one of these songs is a solo song.

I thought that I should cover this song on the occasion of Balbir’s anniversary. When I checked up, I found that hardly any details are available online. I realised that the most comprehensive detail on Balbir is available in this blopg itself, and is in the writeup on the Balbir solo song that was covered in the blog on 19 july 2014 !

That article was written by Sudhir Ji, and there he had mentioned that Balbir was born in 1926 in Amritsar. That article mentions that Balbir sang in around 120 movies in a career spanning four decades (from 1940s till 1970s), but only about a dozen or so of them are solo songs.

The exact day of Balbir’s birth anniversary is not known. In fact, the exact date of his death is not known either. On searching online, I read in an news item that he was murdered by his relatives sometime in 1970s. So sad.

With no date to go by, there is little point holding this rare song back. So here is the sixth and final song from “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957), four years after the other five songs from the movie were covered in the blog.

This song is sung by S Balbir. Pt Priyadarshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-So raha jahaan hai (Mumtaz Mahal)(1957) Singer-Balbir, Lyrics-Pt Priyadarshi, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

so raha jahaan hai
jaagti jawaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai
jaagti jawaaniyaan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

baadalon ki god mein
chaand muskura raha
ishq jhoom jhoom aaj
ishq jhoom jhoom aaj
husn ko bula raha aa
dekh lo chakor ko
de raha qurbaaniyaan aan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

dolte armaan hain
dhadkanen machal raheen
baar baar har ghadi
baar baar har ghadi
saans thhandi chal rahi ee
pyaase honth maangte
pyaar ki nishaaniyaan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

सो रहा जहान् है
जागती जवानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है
जागती जवानियाँ
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

बादलों की गोद में
चाँद मुस्कुरा रहा
इश्क़ झूम झूम आज
इश्क़ झूम झूम आज
हुस्न को बुला रहा
देख लो चकोर को
दे रहा कुर्बानियाँ’
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

डोलते अरमान हैं
धड़कनें मचल रहीं
बार बार हर घड़ी
बार बार हर घड़ी
सांस ठंडी चल रही
प्यासे होंठ मांगते
प्यार की निशानियाँ
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

While discussing HFM in this blog, we have come across artists with same names who often get confused among each others. We in this blog call it “same name confusion”- a phrase coined by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia. He has written lots of articles in this blog, as well as elsewhere, trying to clear confusions about artists with similar names.
