One of his most well known poems. It tells of the in depth vision of this poet’s mind that has explore the sensitivities of the human mind and this existence. He passed away day before yesterday, on a Sunday afternoon. Went in for a post lunch nap, never to rise again – as simple as that. He was 87.

Born as Nandram Das Bairagi on 10th February, 1931, in Rampura village of district Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, he had a penchant for writings songs and poems right from his teen years. The manner in which he strung together his verses, and then the way in which he presented them, made him a popular poet at kavi sammelans and cultural programs. People were drawn to this very young man whose words of romanticism, and the social and philosophical messaging brought him to limelight quite early in life. Once at such a gathering, the local candidate for an upcoming election anointed him with the name ‘Balkavi’, and this name then became his signature for life. [This episode is attributed to Kailashnath Katju, a candidate belonging to the Congress party.]

The association with this political outfit became stronger as he moved into election politics. In 1968 he was elected to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly. He won again in 1980, and was a minister in the cabinet till 1984. From 1984 to 1989 he was a member of the Lok Sabha. After this, he was also a member of the Rajya Sabha from 1998 to 2004.

In his heydays, he wrote occasional songs for films, in the decades of 1960s and 1970s. His first film as a songwriter is ‘Gogola’ from 1966. The duet “Zara Keh Do Fizaaon Se Hamen Itna Sataayen Na. . .” became quite popular. Not only had he the ability to write such romantic verses, but also to create such comedy songs as “Bori Bunder Se Borivali, Dekh Li Maine Gali Gali”, also from the same film.  He has written about 40 songs for the following films (as per Geet Kosh listings),

  • Gogola (1966)
  • Do Boond Paani (1971)
  • Reshma Aur Shera (1971)
  • Veer Chhatrsaal (1971)
  • Achhaa Bura (1972)
  • Kshitij (1974)
  • Rani Aur Lalpari (1975)
  • Jaadu Tona (1977)
  • Pal Do Pal Ka Saath (1978)
  • Azaadi Pachchees Baras Ki (UR)
  • Chautha Paalna (UR)
  • Mausam Badla Hai (UR)

His best known and most popular creation is “Tu Chanda Main Chaandni. . .” from ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, that is tuned by Jaidev. In ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’, he worked with SN Tripathi and in ‘Rani Aur Lalpari’, he teamed up with Vasant Desai. His verses from ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ are poetic gems – “Nimbuwa Pe Aao Mere Ambuba Pe Aao…”, “Gauri Raat Guzaar Do Kar Chakvi Se Baat…”, and “Jaga Rahe Ghanghor Nagaade Bula Rahi Hai Ranbheri…”. His songs in the normal B grade horror film ‘Jaadu Tona’ are way beyond the quality of the film – “Har Sannata Kuchh Kehta Hai, Har Khamoshi Kuchh Gaati Hai. . .” and “Saanwri Saloni Jamna Ka Jeevan, Ganga Ki Umar Paaye Tu. . .”.

Today I present this unusual philosophical song of love from the film ‘Jaadu Tona’ (1977). The music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. The singing voices are of Yesudas and Asha Bhosle. A poignant and curious exchange on the topic of love, that talks not of birds and roses, but tells the tales of silences and the conversations of mind. Well composed in a slow pace for the mood of the song, and equally well rendered by Asha ji and Yesudas.

Bidding goodbye to the poet of simple verses and deep insights. RIP Balkavi Bairaagi ji.

Song – Har Sannaata Kuchh Kehta Hai  (Jaadu Tona) (1977) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Balkavi Bairaagi, MD – Hemant Bhosle
Yesudas + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

wo sapnon mein bhi aate hain
to khushboo si chhaa jaati hai
us waqt ka aalam kya hoga
jab baahon mein aa jaayenge
andaaz lagaane waale hi
andaaz lagaaya karte hain
aksar gumsum sapne hi
awaaz lagaaya karte hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

is aag se jo takraata hai
ye aag usey pee jaati hai
is aag ko jo pee jaata hai
kehte hain khuda ho jaata hai
do chaar gunaahon ki hasrat
chhoti si tamanna maafi ki
insaan hi rehne do mujhko
mujhko na khuda kehlaana hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kehte hain khuda ki haalat bhi
kuchh aisi hi ho jaati hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

वो सपनों में भी आते हैं
तो खुशबू सी छा जाती है
उस वक़्त का आलम क्या होगा
जब बाहों में आ जाएंगे
अंदाज़ लगाने वाले ही
अंदाज़ लगाया करते हैं
अक्सर गुमसुम सपने ही
आवाज़ लगाया करते हैं
सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

इस आग से जो टकराता है
ये आग उसे पी जाती है
इस आग को जो पी जाता है
कहते हैं खुदा हो जाता है
दो चार गुनाहों की हसरत
छोटी सी तमन्ना माफी की
इन्सान ही रहने दो मुझको
मुझको खुदा ना कहलाना है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कहते हैं खुदा की हालत भी
कुछ ऐसी ही हो जाती है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a film called ‘College Girl’ from 1978.  It is produced by Shantilal Soni and directed by SD Narang. The star cast includes Sachin, Bindiya Goswami, Rita Bhadhuri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Urmilla Bhatt, Paintal, Bhagwan, Heena Kausar, Sudhir, Shobhana Shah, Jagdish Raj, Karan Diwan, Chand Usmani amongst others.

The film has seven songs of which the most famous is “Pyar Manga Hai Tumhi Se Na Inkaar Karo” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Indeevar. This is already posted on our blog. Another song by Mohd. Rafi “Phoolon Ki Tarah Wo Hansti Thi” which is penned by Dev Kohli has also been posted. And I agree with Atul ji, as he has written in that post – If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.”

Now here is the third song from the movie. This is another surprise from Bappi Lahiri. First, it is a bhajan and he has Bharat Vyas (!!!) as the lyricist. Ok it is in Yesudas’s voice, not surprising as Yesudas has sung for Bappi Lahiri in ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ and ‘Haisiyat’. But when I came across this song the surprises didn’t end. The song is lip-synced by Dr. Shriram Lagoo. I can think of only one or two other movies where Shriram Lagoo has had songs to lip sync – one in ‘Dooriyan – “Khota Paisa Nahin Chalega” (playback by KN Sharma) and the other in ‘Kinaara’ – “Meethe Bol Boley Boley Paayaliya“(playback by Bhupinder).

The bhajan starts at the home and then the family proceeds to a temple which reminds me of a temple attached to an ashram in Mumbai’s Vile Parle area, which I have frequented a number of times before marriage. It was a very peaceful place with lot of space for us children to run about. Going by what we see in the song it looks like Bindiya is sad about something as her eyes are constantly moist and Rita Bhadhuri looks like the more playful of the two sisters. Chandrani Mukherjee’s is the female voice in this song.

Yesterday, 10th January was Yesudas’ birthday. He turned 77. He is a maestro of classical music and is a huge fan of his guru Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, Dr. M Balamurali Krishna and Mohd Rafi. Having started his playback career in the 60s in Malayalam followed by the other South Indian languages his Hindi debut came in 1971; though the first movie that released with a song sung by him is ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ in 1976 followed by ‘Chitchor’. He then went on to sing for many Bollywood movies. He has been awarded the Padmashri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has won the national award seven times for best playback singing. He has sung in almost all Indian languages except Konkani, Assamese and Kashmiri. Just as the “Venkateswara Suprabhatam”, the good morning shloka played at Balaji temple in Tirupathi, is associated with MS Subbalakshmi, “Harivarasanam” – the good night shloka played at Ayyappa Temple in Sabarimala – is in the voice of KJ Yesudas.

Wishing a belated happy birthday to the ‘Gana Gandharva Dasettan’, as the Malayalees love to address him, alias Yesudas.

Song – Nahin Chaahiye Rang Mahal (College Girl) (1978) Singer – Yesudas, Chandrani Mukherji, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Bappi Lahidi
Yesudas + Chandrani

Lyrics

nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali hooo
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
nahi chahiye heere moti. . .
nahi chahiye heere moti
na ratnon ki khaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
kisi ke aage hath na phailaayen. . .
apni mehnat ka sukh paaye
itna de vardaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali ho
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13900

Exactly one month and a day – from the time that we hit the last century milestone. The 13800th song had come on to the blog on 10th Dec. And today, 10th Jan, we arrive at the 13900th station of this musical journey. Many congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We are into another year now, and folks keeping tabs will agree, the pace of postings, and pace of participations has really picked up in the past 10 days. Or to put a positive twist – in the first 10 days of the year. The mind goes back to the whatsapp message on the group – that new year resolutions are but a matter of interest for about a week into the new year. After that, the crowds on the morning walk are back to the thin normal expected for those early hours of the day. 🙂

But so far, so good – the going has been good in these ten days. And quite truthfully, as of now, we have ready posts from many contributors waiting in the wings to come on board. The limitations are at times either just a specific anniversary or a milestone must be covered, or that a debut and a yippeee song must be part of the day’s menu. On all these counts, we seem to be doing really well so far. But, oh then, it is just 10th Jan as yet. Maybe we will create a new record of determined sustenance this year. Or then, maybe we won’t. Time, as they always say, will tell. 🙂

Welcome all to the 13900th पड़ाव on this long and interesting journey of Hindi film music. On this, 3643rd day of the existence of this blog. For such significant milestones, we conventionally attempt to bring together important milestones for artists or anniversaries of artists. Today, the 10th Jan, is the birth anniversary of two living luminaries of the Hindi film industry.

First we have Basu Chattejee, who turns 87 today. Basu Chatterjee, a name that is synonymous with what is termed as the middle-of-the-road genre of Hindi films. Films that are not big star high budget bonanzas of formulaic composition, and neither they are at the extreme end of the avant-garde. If you think of ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) and ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), then that is the genre termed as middle-of-the-road. I remember those were the school days, and it was films like this that none in the family had any objections for us kids to go and watch with friends. For almost a decade, Basu Da’s films were a routine. If it is directed by him, then it is a must watch film.

I have seen almost all of his films as they appeared, during my student years, first school and then college. I was not very familiar with Basu Da as a personality. But his films carried / still carry such an enchanting charisma of natural flow, natural performances, and stories that are closer to real life, but are close in a very endearing sense. The romanticism is nurtured in very natural surroundings. The lead actors are seen waiting at public bus stops, and eating at known regular restaurants. The characters appear to be closer to life – vulnerable, defeat-able, more real than the ‘macho’ heroes of the mainline cinema. The humor is simple, expressed in everyday language. And the story lines – quite natural and rarely getting overdramatic.

That was the cinematic diet that challenged the supremacy of the mainline big budget cinema. Yes, there were other companions of Basu Da on this journey, who share the same penchant for clean and happy entertainment. Of course, Basu Da stands out as the one who has given us wonderful hits year after year, for almost a decade. A quiet sampler of his films from his first decade – ‘Baton Baton Mein’ (1979), ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1979), ‘Dillagi’ (1978), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Swami’ (1977), ‘Safed Jhoot’ (1977), ‘Priyatma’ (1977), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1976), ‘Chitchor’ (1976), ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), ‘Us Paar’ (1974), ‘Piya Ka Ghar’ (1972), ‘Sara Akash’ (1969). And of course the list does not end here. It continues well into the early 2000s, albeit that it then gets mixed with mainline, big stars films also.

Each of the films listed above merits an individual write up, in as of itself. Many would remember the songless ‘Sara Akash’ – a tale of a newly wed couple and their tribulations of adjusting with each other and with the families. Ascending forward from this, Basu Da has given us delightful fare to watch year in and year out. A dear salute to this master of the understatement of the middle-of-the-road cinema.

The second birthday we celebrate today is Yesudas. At 77 today, exactly 10 years younger to Basu Da, this young man is the owner of that home grown sound of singing that has adorned many a films by Basu Da. We frequently see his presence in Basu Da’s films, starting with ‘Chit Chor’ and ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ both in 1976, almost becoming the ghost voice of Amol Palekar for many of his films. Although he recorded his first song for Hindi cinema in 1971, for the unreleased film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisan’, the first released films for him were the two mentioned, in 1976.

Born in 1940 in Cochin, Yesudas started his singing career with Malayalam films in 1961. He made a siginificant contribution to the films in south Indian regional cinemas, before heading north to Hindi cinema in early 1970s. His debut in the popular Hindi cinema with Basu Da’s films quickly earned him an important recognition as a playback singer of significant merit.

Yesudas has been honored seven times as the Best Playback Singer at the National Awards. About him, music director Ravindra Jain has said that if he ever regains his vision, the first person he wants to see is Yesudas.

Today’s song brings together these two luminaries. The film ‘Apne Paraaye’  (1980) is directed by Basu Da. In the film, Yesudas is the playback voice for Amol Palekar, yet once again. The song is a duet with Asha Bhosle, and on screen this is performed by Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi.

Ed Note: Our dear Pratap ji has added this information. The story of this film is based on the novel titled ‘Nishkriti’ written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. ‘Nishkriti’ means ‘chhutkaara’.
Ed Note: Dear Arun ji has further added that this novel is the last work of Sharat Chandra, and also his shortest novel. Further, the more appropriate flavor of the meaning of the word ‘Nishkirti’ is ‘deliverance’ or ‘setting free’.

In the story line, the couple and their two children have fallen on hard times, due to machinations and misunderstanding within a family of brothers. Utpal Dutt and Girish Karnad are brothers, both lawyers. Amol Palekar is their younger cousin, who stays in the same household. The envy between the wives of Amol Palekar and Girish Karnad forces Amol to leave the household and go to live in the village home of the family. The misunderstandings between the families reach a high pitch with legal action being initiated by Girish Karnad, at the behest of his wife, against Amol. Eventually, the eldest brother, Utpal Dutt, steps in, to iron out the problems. The family is reunited, with the caveat that Girish Karnad and his wife leave the household and move to another city.

The song is placed in the time when Amol and his family are relegated to the servant’s hut of the family’s village home, and the dishonest and unscrupulous supervisor of their family estate reduces the family to a hand-to-mouth situation. Amol has played the role of the youngest brother who is not perturbed even in the extreme circumstances. In this song, he is telling his ‘mann’, his own self, and also his two sons, that one should be happy and have a song on the lips, no matter what are the difficulties facing oneself.

The sensitive lyrics are from the pen of Yogesh and the softly paced and oh so relaxing composition is tuned by Bhappi Lahidi. A wonder strike that is so different from the ‘disco’ Lahidi that we are more familiar with.

Wishing both Basu Da and Yesudas, many more such celebrations to follow in the coming years.

And once again, congratulations to all members of this bandwagon, on the 139th century song. Surely, we have come a long way. And equally surely, we still have a long way to go. . .  Cheers.


Song – Gaao Mere Mann  (Apne Paraaye) (1980) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhappi Lahidi

Lyrics

gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
poora nahin hota kisi ka
yahaan har sapan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
bujhe koi aasha ka diya
to phir se jala le
dukhon se tu haar na raahi
kiye ja jatan
ho oo
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
rukenge na tere liye re
samay ke charan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13898

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o

“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. I became aware of this fact when I discussed the earlier songs from this movie. Initially I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie and once again I reverted back to the same impression with passage of time 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery for Hindi movies), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of them have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Yesudas and Suresh Wadkar. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Prashant Nanda, Baldev Khosa (I hope I have identified him correctly) and Zarina Wahab.


Song-Tera kuchh khoya ho…Geeta raani Geeta raani hans de zara (Naiyya)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
dil na dukha
maan bhi jaa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
dil na dukha aa
maan bhi jaa aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

saawan ne aawan ka nyota
bheja hai manbhaawan ko
nyota bheja hai manbhaawan ko
o o
ham ne to ek dev ko saupa
tere roop ke chandan ko
gori
tere roop ke chandan ko
hai raam sa aa sajan tera aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

ik maanjhi ke ghar se tu gori
raaj mahal mein jaayegi
jaayegi
raaj mahal mein jaayegi
o o o
jo sukh hamne sapne mein dekhe
wo saare sukh paayegi
paayegi
wo saare sukh paayegi
dena nahin
hamko bhula aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

main doonga tujhe kajra bindiya
main racha doonga mehandi mahaawar
khud ko bandhak rakh ke loonga
sona karoonga wo tujhpe nichhaawar
haathon ki choodiyaan
main doonga
paanwon ke bichhua
main doonga
chunri saadi
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
hey
mil ke tujhe denge saja aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara
tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
hamra kaha aa
maan bhi jaa aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hansde o geeta raani
hans de zara

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.
