Fading Memories…. Unforgettable Songs: October, 2017

Shakila in Mohammad Rafi songs

Shakila [Born: Badshah Begum – January 1, 1935] the gorgeous, beautiful, and equally talented star of ‘50/’60s, would have attained long-cherished love of Hindi Film fans only for her performance in melodious numbers like Babuji Dheere Chalna, Neend Na Mujhko Aaye and Ae Mere Dil-e-Nadaan. Most of the public media carried fond obituary on her passing away on 20th September, 2017.

In a fairly long career, Shakila acted in over 50 films and had had acted with several top notch actors like Chandrashekhar, Shammi Kapoor, Guru Dutt, Manoj Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Sunil Dutt, Pradeep Kumar, Jairaj, Vijay Anand, Ajit and last but not the least, her most favorite co-artist/brother-in-law, Johnny Walker!

We dedicate our present episode to Shakila by bringing in her memories through Mohammad Rafi songs, in which she herself acted or is the focus of the song.

We have consciously avoided some songs, like Tum Poochhati Ho Ishq Bhala or Deewana Kahe Ke Aaj Mujhe Phir Pukariye or Sau Baar Janam Lengay or Zumati Hai Nazar Zumata Hai Pyar and the like, that remain very popular as much popular as the female songs filmed directly on her.

Here are some of the representative songs for the day:

Aye Saba Unse Kah Jara – Alibaba And 40 Chor (1954) –  With Asha Bhosle  – S N Tripathi, Chitragupt  – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan

The co-star with Shakila is Mahipal. Rafi and Asha Bhosle are at their usual romantic, carefree best. S N Tripathi (and Chitragupt) have also fully blossomed up to demands of the situation of the song.

Jab Rup Hi Pyasa Hokar Yu, Chhup Chhup Ke Pani Peeyega , To Rup Ka Pyasa Jo Hoga , Wo Phir Kya Peekar Phir Jeeyega – Ratna Manjari (1955) – S N Tripathi – B D Mishra

Many commentators of that period have wondered about the motivation of Shakila to opt for the mythological type, normally dubbed as B or C class films, after the roaring success of Aar Paar. It was probably this choice that took Shakila’s career into an altogether a different orbit.

Janewale O Janewale, Janewale Khuda Ki Rahmato Ka Tujh Pe Saya – Haatimtaai (1956) – with Suman Kalyanpur – S N Tripathi – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan

S N Tripathi had composed some wonderful tunes for seemingly obscure films. Hatimtaai was one such instance.

Duniya Ki Nazar Hai Buri Jhulfein Na Sanwara Karo – Agra Road (1957) – With Geeta Dutt – Roshan – Prem Dhawan

Shakila looks so stunningly beautiful that all that is said in the song about her seems to have been inspired indeed by her looks.

Ek Dil Hamare Pas Hai Nilam Karega, Fir Apne Ghar Me Baith Ke Aram Karega – Chaubees Ghante (1958) – With Asha Bhosle – Bipin Babul – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan

Rafi sounds typically Johnny-Walker-ish style in the delivery of the song. However, we have only audio of the song, so no way to know who had acted Mohammad Rafi’s playback on the film.

Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaare Lutata , Ye Kaun Aayaa Hai Aanchal Udata – Madam X.Y.Z. (1959) – With Lata Mangeshkar – Chitragupt – Prem Dhawan

One more obscure film, and one more obscure song – however music director and lyricists are well known name. Chitragupt probably still had not made his mark till then.

O Kali Topi Wale Zara Naam To Bataa -Kali Topi Lal Rumal (1959) – With Asha Bhosle – Chitragupt – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Much unlike Chitragupt tune! The tune, delivery by both Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle and that wonderful use of harmonica has made the song being instantly likable and capable of being etched into the memory. Shakila also looks stunningly beautiful.

Aji Ab Kehna Maan Jao Tum Hi Bade Main Chhoti – Baraat (1960) – With Geeta Dutt –- Chitragupt – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Chitragupt had profusely used, and that too to a very telling effect, Geeta Dutt in mid50s, before he switched over to Lata Mangeshkar during 60s.  He is credited with highest number of Rafi-Geeta Dutt duets. The song does seem to a shadow parody of Ye Lo Main Haari Piya (Aar Paar) and Achcha Jee Main Haari Chalo Maan Jaao (Kaala Paani).

Zalim Kahna Man Re Chaki Chal Ne Khakar Pan, Qatal Hum Ho Gaye Nainawali Tera Kya Gaya –  Baraat (1960) –  With Geeta Dutt

I am not able resist temptation of putting up one more song from the same film. But this a bhangra song, composed wholly and truly by Chitragupt. And Shakila looks really so beautiful that many youngsters would feel Qatal Hum Ho Gaye, then and even now.

Jab Ghadi Bole Char Gori Karake Singaar Chali Aana Us Paar – Gambler (1960) – With Suman Kalyanpur – Chitragupt – Prem Dhawan

We have one more of a very unlike-Chitragupt light song. Suman Kalyanpur pairing with Rafi this time….

Yeh Rang Na Chhutega Ulfat Ki Nishani Hai – With Asha Bhosle – China Town (1962) – Ravi – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Surprisingly, for many the song falls under the category of ‘not heard before’. The tune is so unlike Ravi, perhaps nearer to N Datta’s style, probably the effect for their association together as assistants to Hemant Kumar !

Hasino Se To Bas Sahab Salaam Door Se Achchi Na Inki Dosti Acchi Na Inki Dushmani Acchi  – Ustaadon Ke Ustad (1963) – Ravi  – Asad Bhopali

We have one more unlikely song – a pure chhed chaad song, which Pradip Kumar seems to carry relatively easily. And even as the song is for a very mischievous mood, it is quite soft as a tune to our ears.

Tunak Tun Tun Bole Jiya  Mera Dil Kho Gaya Hai, Diwana Ho Gaya Hai -Khahin Pyar Na Ho Jaye (1963) – with Lata Mangeshkar – Kalayanji Anandji – Qamar Jalalabadi

This time we have a fastpaced, a bit loud, duet.

Sang Sang Rahenge Tumhaare Ji Huzoor – Mulzim (1963) – With Asha Bhosle – Ravi – Shakeel Badayuni

Ravi’s comfort with Mohammad Rafi is so clearly visible the way the song is composed.

Here is its sad version, a solo by Mohammad Rafi

We will continue our search for Unforgettable Songs that seem to Fading away from our Memories every second Sunday of the month……..

Khushi Jab Rooth Jaati Hai….Nazar Pher Kar Dil Pe – Pugree – Ghulam Mohammad – Shakeel Badayuni

The song for which I have not been able to locate the soft link:

We will take up the concluding part of Shamshad Begum’s Solo Songs for 1948 in the next episode.

Business Sutra |3.3| Ramayana and Mahabharata

Business Sutra |3| Business Ethics and Morals

In the first episode of the TV serial on CNBC 18, spread over three segments, Devdutt Pattanaik presented to us the most visible form of the business – the corporation : its meaning, its purpose and its action perspective.

In the second episode Devdutt Pattanaik discusses Leadership: Role of the leader, Context of the leader and Leadership in different business cycles.

The third episode relates to the Business Ethics and Morals. In the first part, a broad spectrum of business ethics and dilemmas of the leader has been covered. In the 2nd Part, a closer look at these issues has been taken up, in the perspective of relationship between owner and the organization. The present 3rd part deals the subject of The Right (Dharma) from two opposing points of view – the Ramayana way and the Mahabharata way.

Business Sutra |3.3| Ramayana and Mahabharata

The treatment of rules-based-principles-compliance (Ramayana-way) and principles-based-rules-compliance (Mahabharata-way) is fundamentally approached at very different levels in the Western world practices and in India’s mythological concepts.

The West seems to lay more emphasis on compliance as the goal of ethical and moral conduct, whereas Indian mythology approaches it as way of life. I have chosen three representative articles that effectively present the current Western thinking on the subject:

The shift from rules-based to principles-based companies : Lynda Gratton has been studying the behavior of corporations for more than three decades. But what she has observed in the past few years has surprised even her. Under the influence of megatrends such as globalization, hyper-connectivity and worldwide financial instability, the professor of management practice at the London Business School has witnessed the erosion of rules-based organizational models and the rise of companies driven by principles.

Principles-Based Regulation and Compliance: A Framework for Sustainable Integrity – To remain competitive and even to survive in this complex and uncertain environment, pioneer thinking and innovation must go beyond product lines and services. They must encompass active evolution and management of the corporate social value proposition. They must engage the engineering and design of compliance systems that grow organically. Essentially, they also must deliver incentives for cultures to take root that are defined by their integrity. In a dynamic risk environment, this all forges a foundation of adaptability and enterprise…. Increasingly, non-market aspects of business – social justice, environmental matters, income equality and the like – have become key components for long-term business success. At the same time, these considerations make business increasingly relational rather than purely transactional.

A 21st century model based on principles, not rules – The need for principles-based governance is fuelled by the pervasive public scrutiny of organisations, a trend that will only increase with advances in social media and technology. There are precious few remaining “dark corners” in which any organisation can operate. The manner in which government acts and business is transacted has been, and will be, transformed. Every organisation’s approach to governance, increasingly, will determine the organisation’s value.

So we quickly take up what Devdutt Pattanaik has to say in Segment 3 of the episode 3 – Ramayana and Mahabharat, as the Indian Mythology’s point of view.

We have discussed Dharma, we have discussed Dharma Sankat. Both the Mahabharata and the Ramayana talk of many different instances of what is the road to Dharma – the principle and what constitutes Dharma Sankat. We have a very interesting question from Ajay Piramal referring to both these great books and what he draws from that.

What are the learnings that we can get to apply in the modern world from the Mahabharata and also from the Ramayana. Sometimes on first reading it looks that there are several contradictions in to what is said in Mahabharat and what is said in Ramayana. Can you just explain that to us?

Ramayana and Mahabharat are both considered History (Itihaas). Itihaas is conventionally translated as history but what it actually means it is a tense agnostic term – which means so it was, so it is and so it will be. That means it is timeless. Second is the context of Ramayana and Mahabharata. They exist in two different contexts. So they cannot be seen as equals. That is the mistake the Western mind forces us to look at them that way.

West is obsessed with standardization, but our way is according to tastes – one is that of Dwapar Yug and the other is that of Treta Yug. Treta is the earlier, innocent, phase of the organization whereas Dwapar is the later, a little darker, phase in the life of the organization, which is slightly more corrupt.

Let us revisit the principal of Dharma again:

Now let’s do a simple 2 by 2 matrix to understand the Ramayana – Mahabharata:

You have rules on one side – the rules are followed or the rules are not followed. We have the principle (Dharma) on the other side – Principles are upheld or are not upheld.  Now look at the Ramayana – in Rama, Dharma is upheld and rules are upheld at the same time. Everything is about others, even, almost always,s at the cost of oneself. So it is misery in forest and misery in case of palace. His opposite is the great alpha male which somehow people seem to like today. That tells you about the times. He is Ravana. No Dharma no rules; no rules no Dharma. Your wife is my wife.  and I’m an animal. Even my son dies I will not let go of my little toy, my brothers die I will not let go of my little toy. That is Ravana.

Now look at the same thing – rules are broken, bent. Krishna always keeps bending the rules, breaking the rules but the principle is intact. It is always for the other. Now let us look at the most favorite character Duryodhana. He never breaks the rule but he’s constantly violating the principle – he is holding the letter of the law never the spirit of the law. Left side is the spirit, right side is the letter. The Top Left is the belief, whereas Bottom Right is the behavior.  He is Pretender.

Where does Yudhisthira fit in all of this?

Yudhisthira is someone struggling to be Rama, he moves from Ravana square to Rama square – this is the journey of Yudhisthira, with the help of Krishna. His honesty is about rules, not realizing it is all about rules as well as about principles. Mahabharat is the story of focus on the principle. When a woman is being disrobed, everybody discussing legal matters- is it okay or not okay to disrobe her. Bhishma and Drona watching a woman being disrobed and they are supposed to be very educated people and they are not doing anything this in the matter.

That brings me to a very interesting issue. You said that the Ramayana comes from an older age of more innocence whereas the Mahahabharat comes from a darker, newer, age.

Mahabharat represents a more matured organization, whereas Ramayana represents a very early phase organization, which has just tasted success. Everything is right – market is right. The principles have just been created. So it’s exciting and new, people are not smart enough to subvert it yet.

In the case of a mature organization, people have started forgetting the principles, now it is a slightly more rule focused organization.

The principles have been forgotten, rules have become more important. It has become bureaucratic. For a bureaucrat, letter of the law matters, not the spirit of law. Like any bureaucracy all the rules upheld but people still don’t have food. So the principle is forgotten the woman is disrobed but nobody is arrested.

People want Ram. So, the rules are created. But rules do not make Ram.

In our next session, we will take up the 4th episode – The Conflicts – in this Devdutt Pattanaik’s TV serial Business Sutra.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Shamshad Begum [1]

In terms of range of music directors, nature of songs and ranking on the commercial success, solo songs of Geeta Roy also seem to follow the pattern that of solo songs of Shamshad Begum seems to follow. However, Shamshad Begum was probably more established by 1948 and can be considered to be one of those female playback singers of vintage era who has a very firm footprint in the golden era as well.

However, before we draw any inference, let us first listen to the representative songs.


We have listened to the solo songs of 1948 of two of the other- Lata-Mangeshkar female playback singers – Suraiya and Geeta Roy. We will now listen to the third one – Shamshad Begum – who also spanned quite prominent presence into transition phase of the end of vintage era and the beginning of the golden era.

The third part of the solo songs of Geeta Roy for 1948 follows the same pattern as the one observed in earlier part [1] and [2], i.e. I do not have any song that I recollect ever having heard earlier.
