Fading Memories….Unforgettable Songs

Fading Memories…. Unforgettable Songs : October 2021

Shankar (Jaikishan) and Shailendra’s Songs Fading From the Memory: 1955 -1956 (Part)

Shankar (Singh Raghuvanshi) – B: 25 October 1922 | D:  26 April 1987 – was one of the genius composers of the famous duo Shankar Jaikishan. Shankar had a long stint of training in classical music. He was a tabla player at the core, but went onto learn several rhythm and string instruments successfully in the initial period of struggle He got the basic training in the nitty-gritty of film music composition as assistant to Ram Ganguli in Raj Kapoor’s maiden venture, Aag (1948)

When Raj Kapoor took up his next project, Barsat (194) he invited Shankar to take charge of the music direction. Shankar roped in Jaikishan as his partner. During the decades of 1940s, 1950s and 1960s several composers dominated Bollywood films. Naushad Ali, S D Burman, C Ramchandra, Vasant Desai, Salil Chowdhury, Roshan, Madan Mohan, OP Nayyar, Ravi etc. all had the class, and style of their own. Among these stalwarts, Shankar Jaikishan created their own space – with RK and other leading banners, critics as well as common fans – and went on to compose music in almost 195 films in that golden age.

Shailendra (a.k.a. Shankardas Kesarilal, B:  30 August 1923 – D: 14 December 1966) ‘s poetry and films songs reflected his temperamental proximity to the common man. In the famous quartet of Shankar Jaikishan Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri, Shankar and Shailendra worked as one part of the team with Hasrat Jaipuri, and Jaikishan made up the other half. Apart from the personal preferences and proximity related to friendship, this division of work was more in accordance with the inherent composition patterns of the two composers. Shankar always loved composing serious thematic songs with a lot of emotional content that only Shailendra could do justice to whereas Jaikishan was more into composing light- hearted romantic stuff that came so naturally to Hasrat.

To commemorate the birth anniversary of Shankar Singh Raghuvanshi, we have commenced the present series of Shankar (Jaikishan) and Shailendra’s Songs Fading From the Memory from October 2018 and have been covering their less familiar songs from the films released in chronological order of year.

Till now, we have covered the years

1949 – 1953 in 2018

1953 (Continued) in 2019.

1954 in 2020

Presently, we would listen to Shankar- (Jaikishan) and Shailendra’s Songs Fading From the Memory for 1955 and part of 1956. The variety of the film subjects and the corresponding song compositions, coupled with the steeply increasing the numbers of the films in a year clearly indicate the beginning of the upsurge in the wave that Shankar Jaikishan created in the ocean of Hindi film music. In fact, 1956 had as many as 7 films under the baton of Shankar Jaikishan with a staggering total of 61 songs, distributed between Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri as 46 and 15 songs respectively.

Seema (1955)

Seema had 6 songs, with Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri scoring lyrics for three songs each. Hasrat Jaipuri’s one song runs into two parts whereas Shailendra’s Tu Pyar Ka Sagar Hai appears twice, in different contexts, in the film. None of the songs from the film can ever be classified as the Fading from The Memory category. Therefore, I have picked up one song that I like more than other songs.

Man Mohana Bade Jhoothe, Haar Ke Haar Nahi Maane – Lata Mangeshkar

Based on Raag Jaijaiwanti, the song is all the way a Shankar Jaikishan song. The composition, though sounds so simple and pleasing, was so difficult to render that Nutan chose to attend the recording session to note the way Lata Mangeshkar negotiates the nuances of the song, so that she herself can truly reproduce these on the screen. Shailendra is at full simplicity blossom when he says –

Bane the khiladi piya, nikale anadi,
Mo se beimani kare, mujhse hi roothe

… … … … …
… … … … …

Tumhari ye bansi kanhaa, ban gai fansi
Taan sunake mora, tan man loote

Aside Trivia: One for more film with the title Seema was made in 1971, for which music director was Shankar Jaikishan!

Shree 420 (1955)

Shree 420 remains one of the most celebrated of RK Productions’ films, with seven of nine songs of the film remaining quite popular even today. Shailendra scored lyrics for

Shaam Gayi Raat Aayi Ab To Sanam Aa Ja , TaaroN Ki Barat Aayee Ke Balam Aa Ja  – Lata Mangeshkar

The song opens with prelude that has faint resemblance with famous ‘Albela’ (1951) song Bholi Surat Dil Ke Khote, Gujarati folk dance garba based, notes before Shankar Jaikishan’s signature base rhythm of dholak picks up the song. Such a melodious song remained relatively less known as compared to other songs, perhaps because it has not been included in the film.

Halaku (1956)

Directed by D D Kashyap, Halaku was a period film. It had Pran in the title role of emperor of Iran. The film revolves around his love for a common citizen beauty, who in fact is deeply in love with other young man. Halaku had 8 songs, of which Shailendra scored lyrics for 5 songs and Hasrat Jaipuri that for the other three.

Of the five songs of Shailendra, three duet songs – Aaja Ke Intzar Mein, Jaane Ko Hai Bahar Bhi (Rafi, Lata); Dil Ka Na Karana Aitbar Koyii, Bhule Se Na Karana Pyar Koyi (Rafi, Lata) and Aji Chale Aao, Tumhein AankhoN Se Dil Ne Bulaya Hai (Lata, Asha) – were quite popular.

Yeh Chand Yeh Sitare, Yeh Saath Tera Mera, Shab-e-Jhindagi Ka Na Ho Ab Savera, O Dilruba, O Dilruba – Lata Mangeshkar

In sync with the background of the story of the film, Shankar Jaikishan has composed the song mainly on the strength of the string instruments, both in the rhythm and in the interlude and obbligato orchestra support.

Teri Duniya Se Jaatein Hai Chhupaye Gam Apana., Liye Jaateein Hai AankhoN Mein Kisi Ke Pyar Ka Sapna – Lata Mangeshkar

Shankar Jaikishan once again follow different than their usual style of composition in the song.

The song was ultimately not included in the film.

Kismat Ka Khel (1956)

Kismat Ka Khel, directed and written by Kishore Sahu was so total failure as a film that its music also ha been packed off to a dust bin with its reels! Film had 7 songs, 5 of which were by Shailendra and two by Hasrat Jaipuri.

Aside Trivia: Kismat Ka Khel is a (just) the fourth film of Sunil Dutt’s career, the earlier three being, Railway Platform (1955) Kundan (1955) and Ek Hi Rastaa (1956).

Kismat Ka Khel Hai Janab-e-Ali…. Aapke Paas HaiN Moti Khazane Aur Apni Jeb Khali – Lata Mangeshkar

In those days, one would just a small opening to let in a song in the film. Here, the protagonists, Vyjayanti Mala and Sunil Dutt seem to be travelling in train, but obviously have no money for the ticket. On being asked to pay the penalty by the TTE, the lady proposes to sing a lilting dance song (in an obviously crowded train coach of those times!) to collect the required sum……!!!

Na Bure Na Bhale Hum Gareeb Gam Ke Pale, Tum Kya Jaano Basti Hamari Rajaa, Ladli Zindagi Apne AnsooN Mein Dhali – Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

The song is presented as a grand presentation of the basti, where Anokhi (Vyjayanti Mala) reigns and Prakash (Sunil Dutt) takes shelter, is the main arena for the film story. It is this situation that makes Shailendra to blossom out in the only stanza the song has:

hamari bhi gali me muskaraye chandani
badal jhumke gaye rasili ragini
tumhare mahal se kuch kam
nahi ye basti hamari

Arz Hai Aapse Aur Apse, Bhed Ki Baat Hai ApanoN Se Kahi Jaati Hai …… Balam Aayega…. – Lata Mangeshkar

The song is some occasion for Vyajayanti Mala to present herself as a damsel waiting the arrival of her beloved, of course in the form of a dance!

The song opens with a sakhi, which has harmonium in the obbligato support

Tu Maane Ya Na Maane Balam Anajaane, Bedardi Tere Liye… Nache Meri Zindagi – Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

The song is presented as a street-side tamaasa dance, but the appears very synthetic. The compositing seems to be set to mid-east Asian culture but lacks the melodious touch of SJ music.

Chalo Le ChaluN Mein Taaron Mein Rang Rangeele GulzaroN Mein – Asha Bhosle

The stage dance song begins with gorgeous prelude and then goes onto become a fast-paced song.

Basant Bahar (1956)

Shankar Jaikishan’s bag of variety of film subjects for the year 1956 had Basant Bahar as a major challenge since the subject revolved around the life and travails of a n astrologer’s son who is keenly interested in music. As such the film had to have songs based on either classical raags or should have a classical core.

The challenge was to stand up to the unprecedented success of music of Baiju Bawara. Success would have placed them in the first row of the then top class music directors and failure would have branded them as ‘also ran’ club membership. Shankar Jaikishan responded the challenge with as many as nine songs. Of these nine Shailendra scored lyrics for eight songs. Forcefully selecting one for the present episode, all other seven bore the class as well as mass popularity. These were: Ketaki Gulab Champak Ban Phoole (Manna Dey, Bhimsen Joshi); Sur Na Saje Kya GaooN Main and Bhay Bhanjana Vandana Sun Hamari (both, Manna Dey); Nain Mile Chain KahaaN (Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar); Badi Der Bhayi and Duniya Na Bhaye (both, Mohammad Rafi) and Ja Ja Ja Ja Re Balamwa (Lata Mangeshkar). Even the only one song by Hasrat Jaipuri, Main Piya Tori Tu Mane Ya Na Mane (Lata Mangeshkar) is not a shade less than the other eight.

Kar Gaya Re Kar Gaya Re Kar Gaya Mujhpe Jadoo Sanwariya – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle

The dancing, outspoken, one lady spells out her feelings in the form of the second line of the song, Ye Kya Kiya Re, Gazab Kiya Re, Chor Ko Samaji Main Sadhu, which the other, rerved one, shuns to use is the subtle way to set the tone of two competing ladies for the love of Bharat Bhushan. Shankar Jaikishan has very deftly weaved in the two differing appeals in the form of Asha Bhosle singing a dance sequence and Lata Mangeshkar singing a pensive mood sequence. So has Shailendra, by so aptly choosing the lyrics for each mood.

We will foreclose the other four films – New Delhi, Rajhath, Chori Chori and Patarani – the year 1956 for continuation in the next (year) episode, because of sheer variety of each film and listening load of son=me very popular and some not so popular but meritorious songs.

We will continue remembering Unforgettable Songs that seem to Fading away from our Memories every second Sunday of the month next year too……..

Sahir’s Songs of Romance – Four-film Associations

Of the 122 films for which Sahir Ludhianvi penned lyrics, in a career spanning from 1948 to 1989, the decades of 50s and 60s account for 84 films – 44 films during 1950 to 1959 and 44 films during 1960 to 1979 – which statistically works out to a huge 69%.  By the turn of ‘60s GenNext music directors were in the process of  taking over the baton from music directors of the earlier generation. The character and importance of Hindi film songs too was undergoing a major shift. In such a transforming scenario of the decade of 1970 to 1979, Sahir Ludhianvi remained active and relevant, by penning songs for 26 films (~21%). His quantitative work during 1980 to 1989 did seem to have thinning out – 8 films (~6+%).

The two leading music directors of GenNext breed, R D Burman and Laxmikant Pyarelal had adapted almost contrasting styles of music direction during the decade of 70s. Our journey of Sahir Ludhianvi’s Romantic songs brings us to Sahir’s association of four films with R D Burman, ,one of these two music directors,  in our present episode.

R D Burman, (June 27, 1939 – January 4, 1994) had yet not joined as assistant to his father in Pyasa (1957), the last film, that Sahir and S D Burman did together. However, RD was always part of SDB team, as an understudy of the father. However, when R D Burman teamed with Sahir Ludhianvi in 1973, R D Burman was firmly in his saddle with his own distinct style of rhythm composition, coupled with highly imaginative orchestration.

Tera Mujhse Hai Naata Koi YuNhi NahiN Dil Lubhata Koi…. Jane Tu Ya Jane Na, Mane Tu Ya Mane Na – Aa Gale Lag Ja (1973) – Kishore Kumar

dhuaN dhuaN tha wo sama
yahaN wahaM jane kahaN
tu aur main kahiN mile the pahle
dekha tujhe to dil ne kaha
jane tu ya jane na

dekho abhi khona nahiN
kabhi juda hona nahiN
abke yuNhi milte rahenge dono
wada raha ye is sham ka
jane tu ya jane na

The song has another version, in the voices of Shushma Shreshtha and Kishore Kumar. Sahir Ludhianvi has altered the lyrics in sync with the new situation. This version had earned acclaim of the critics too.

dekho abhee khona nahiN, kabhee juda hona nahin
ab khel mein yuNhee rahenge ham dono
vada raha yeh is sham kaa
yuNhi nahiN dil lubhata koi

vade gaye batein gaiN, jagi jagi rateein gai
chaha jise mila nahi, to bhi hamein gila nahNi
apna to kya jiye marein chahe kuch ho
tujhko to jeena ras aa gaya
jane too ya jane naa

O Thehro Meri Jaan, Waada Karo NahiN Chhodogi Tum Mera Saath , Jahan Tum Ho, Wahan Main Bhi Hoon…..Chhuo NahiN Dekho Mera Haath, Zaraa Peechhe Rakho Haath, JawaaN Tum Ho JawaaN Main Bhi HuN – Aa Gale Lag Ja (1973) – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar

suno meri jaan, haNske mujhe yeh keh do
bheege laboN ki narmi mere liye hai
ho, jawaaN nazar ki masti mere liye hai
hasiN ada ki shokhi mere liye hai
mere liye leke aayi ho yeh saugaat

mere hi peechhe aakhir pade ho tum kyuN
ek main jawaan nahiN hoon, aur bhi to hai
oh, mujhe hi ghere aakhir khade ho tum kyuN
main hi yahaN nahiN hooN aur bhi to hai
jaao jaake le lo jo bhi de de tumhein haath
jahaN sab hai, vahaN main bhi hooN

Kaanp Rahi Main Abhi Jara Tham Jaanam, Baaki Hai Raat Abhi, Haanf Rahi Main, Le LuN Jara Dum Jaanam, Na Kar Ye Baat Abhi  –  Joshila (1973) – Asha Bhosle

tune, o re mere jaani
jo hai ji mein thani
usse daruN main, daruN main …
tu jo, pass mere aaye
jaan meri jaye
aahein bharuN main
th th trak trak th ra
th th trak trak th ra
jane de re, rok jara hath abhi
kaanp rahi main

abhi, gul hai diye sare
pass aa ja pyare
ban ja diwana, diwana
jara, mast main bhi holuN
to ye tujhe boluN
tu hai nishana
th th trak trak th ra
th th trak trak th ra
main bhi huN, tu bhi hai sath abhi
kaanp rahi main

Maine Tujhe Maanga Tujhe Paya Hai, Tu Ne Mujhe Maanga Mujhe Payaa Hai … Aage Hamein Jo Bhi Mile, Mile Na Mile Gila NahiN – Deewar (1975) – Asha Bhosale, Kishore Kumar

chhanw ghani hi nahiN, dhoop kadi bhi, hoti hain rahoN mein
gam ho ke khushiyaN ho sabhi ko humein lena hain bahoN mein
yuN dukhi ho ke jinewale, kya ye tuze pata nahiN
maine tuze manga, tuze paya hai

jhid hain tumhein to lo lab pe na shikawa kabhi bhi layenge
has ke sahengeN jo dard ya gam bhi jahaN se payengein
tuzako jo bura lage, ayesa kabhi kiya nahiN
maine tuze manga, tuze paya hai

Meri Najhar Hai Tujhpe Teri Najhar Hai Mujhpe Isi Liye Rehate HaiN Dono Khoye Huye…. Tere Bina Jiyra Mane Na Lagi Agan Hai Ye Kaisi Haye Jane Na Manwa, Ho Sajna, Ho Tere Bina Jiyra Mane Na – The Burning Train (1980) – Asha Bhosle

tere liye kaliyaN maiN chunti rahuN
aashaaoN ki malayein bunti rahuN
jage mein bhi sapno mein khoi rahuN
sote mein bhi aahat si sunti rahuN
o sajna balma mujhko kya ho gaya
ho januN na januN na, tere bina jiyra mane na
lagi agan hai ye kaisi haye janae na balam ho sajana
meri najhar hai tujhpe teri najar hai mujhpe

….. …… …… …… …… ….

bichhad ke unse na jab dil kisi tarah bahla
sharabkhane ka rukh
sharabkhane ka rukh ekhtiyar hamne kiya
na aanewaloN ka kyuN
na aanewaloN ka kyuN intajhar kyuN hamne kiya
na aanewaloN ka kyuN intajhar kyuN hamne kiya
kisi ke vade pe kyuN, aitbar humne kiya

If R D Burman has maintained his unique style, Sahir Ludhianvi, too, has, retained the basic character of his poetry, in this era of film songs in the era of more predominance of action over the content, resulting in a unique combination of two different styles blending into a creative association.

In our next episode, we will again change the track from ‘70s to the earlier decades, with Sahir Ludhianvi’s five-film association with O P Nayyar.

The Eponymous Principles of Management

The Eponymous Principles of Management – The ‘Super Mario’ Effect

One common characteristic of incompetent people, whether infested by Dunning-Kruger Effect, or even competent people, under the influence of the Impostor Syndrome, or not, usually, is that failing several times makes one realize when it can happen again. That fear of failure causes us to never try in the first place.

However, it is conclusively proven that the root cause is actually not the fear, but how we perceive the failure, i.e., generally we would not like to be seen having failed in the eyes of the others. This was borne out in an experiment conducted by Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer and Apple engineer, with more than 1.5 million followers on YT[1]. The experiment runs something like this:

In a simple computer game, one had to get the car across the maze by typical arranging the computer programming code like blocks.

The game had two versions – in one if you fail you do not lose any points and can try again, whereas in the second one, for every failure you lose five points, but you can try again, here, too. 50,000 people played the game. When the results of the two versions were analysed, it revealed a very significant trait of a human being.

From the total participants who chose not lose points, 68% succeeded in solving the puzzle. This group had made 12 attempts, on an average, before they quit. In comparison to this, from those participants who opted for a loss of five pints per failure, on 52% finally solved the puzzle. The average number of attempts that this group made before quitting was 5.

This went on confirm the famous Japanese saying, “Nana Korobi, Ya Oki’[2] – Fall down seven times, stand up eight. In other words, those try more, are likely to succeed more.

It was this experiment that helped Mark Rober to come up with what he calls as The ‘Super Mario’ Effect.[3]

However, before we appraise ourselves with The ‘Super Mario’ Effect, it may be in order to know briefly what this game Super Mario is all about.

This a console video game wherein Mario and Luigi, the two Italian plumbers, try to search Princess Toadstool from the evil King Bowser in the land of Mushroom Kingdom.  The game is based on a series of side-scrolling levels, each filled with enemy evil turtles. The levels take place in different settings, some in dungeons and some above ground, with fights against Bowser impersonators at the end of castle levels. Once the imposter is defeated, a Mushroom Kingdom resident informs Mario or Luigi that the princess is in another castle. The game is completed with the defeat of the true Bowser and the rescue of Princess Toadstool.[4]

If you are defeated in one Super Mario like game, you do not remain defeated, but take on the challenge once again, and again. Generally, you also remember what error you committed in the last game. So, you, consciously or unconsciously, try to avoid that mistake again. This mentality helps you to improve your score with every outing.

Mark Rober, in his TEDx talk, The Super Mario Effect – Tricking Your Brain into Learning More, places this simple revelation as what he calls as ‘life gamification’. In effect this gamification effects helps us to reframe all of the challenges and failures in our life into obstacles we can overcome

In his talk, @7.25 Mark Rober sums his idea of ‘life gamification’ as:

This concept of life gamification is more than just, like, “Have a positive attitude” or “Never give up”, because those sort of imply you’re having to endure against your true desire to quit. I feel like when you frame a challenge or a learning process in the way I’m describing [gamification] you actually want to do it. It feels natural to ignore the failures and try again, in the same way a toddler will want to get up and try and walk again, or in the same way you want to keep playing Super Mario Bros.

This simple concept of learning is named after the game ‘Super Mario’ because, the (kid) players keep playing this difficult game without the fear of losses because of the inherent fun of playing the game. In fact, Mark Rober submits that in order to indeed learn how to beat the failures, one should lose. Every failure helps you to be more committed to the success next time.

Here are nine of the best lines from Mark’s Tedx Talk, which has been viewed by over 5.8 million people, on how we can trick our brains into thinking about all forms of learning in the same way we think about a game.

  1. “The trick to learning more and having more success is finding the right way to frame the learning process.”
  2. “What if you just framed the learning process in such a way that you didn’t concern yourself with failure? How much more successful could you be? How much more could you learn?”
  3. “The focus and obsession is about beating the game, not about how dumb you might look. And as a direct result of that attitude—of learning from but not being focused on the failures—we got really good and we learned a ton in a really short amount of time.”
  4. “This is what I call The Super Mario Effect: Focusing on the princess and not the pits, to stick with a task and learn more.”
  5. “When you frame a challenge or a learning process in the way I’m describing, you actually want to do it. It feels natural to ignore the failures and try again in the same way a toddler will want to get up and try to walk again or in the same way you want to keep playing Super Mario Brothers.”

  1. “I really believe if you reframe the challenges, it will make all the difference. My approach is to sort of trick you into learning something through something cool.”
  2. “By reframing the learning process, the fear of failure is often taken off the table and learning comes more naturally.”
  3. “By shifting your focus to the princess and treating your life’s challenges like video games, you can trick your brain and actually learn more and see more success.”
  4. “Failing and failing and failing and eventually succeeding.”

Mark Rober’s Tedx Talk is an important addition to the growing body of research on why games are such an effective tool for learning and retaining information over the long-term. If you’re interested in delving deeper into this wave of emerging science, you can read the interview with Peter C. Brown, author of the bestselling book “Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.”[5]

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1944 @ SoY : Female Solo Songs – MY Top Female Solo Songs

As would be evident, eventhough the list of singers is quite lengthy, there are several singers for which only one song could be traced up on the YT. And that too with almost close to half of the songs for which the singers also remain unidentified.

Moreover, there are many songs where the records of HFGK and those by the valiant YT uploaders seem to be at variance.

To add to the ambguity to the process of selecting the TOP song / singer for the year 1944, almost all the songs that I got to listen in the Micro Analysis, I have listened for the first time.

In any case, from the point of view of my limited knowledge and basic taste, it would be only fair that I confine myself to my personal viewpoint.

Shorn of all these verbose pleadings, the simple fact is, I have not any rational back up analysis for selecting one solo song for a given female singers for the year 1944.

As such, the song for each of the female singer that was covered in the detailed Micro View of Female Songs of 1944 that appealed me most is the one hearing are the ones that presented her. If there is only one song for any female singer, I have simply included here.

So, here are the songs that would call for TOP slot from the female solo Songs for 1944, in the order in which the singer has appeared in the detailed Micro View earlier.:

Amirbai Karanataki – Baaj Rahi Kis Aur Muraliya .. – Police – Ramesh Gupta – Panna Lal Ghosh

Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music – September 2021

Welcome to Sptember 2021 edition of IXth Volume of Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music.

We straight away move on to other tributes and memories this month.

The year 1971 was a glorious year for Indian cinema — it was the year classics such as Anand, Kati Patang and Mera Gaon, Mera Desh came out. It was also the year Guddi was released, which marked the debut of Jaya Bachchan, a coming-of-age story, and one of India’s best ‘fan films’

Asha Bhosle (1957-’58-’59) , when her career graph was in upswing.

‘If Raj Uncle Liked a Song, He Would Give Baba a Gold Coin’: Amla Shailendra Remembers Her Father ‘Kaviraj’ Shailendra – Amla Shailendra Mazumdar, the daughter of ‘Kaviraj’ Shailendra, in conversation with Antara Nanda Mondal, dives deep into his amazing repertoire of songs and a treasure chest of memories to understand the person behind the poet – a loving tribute to the legendary poet-lyricist on his birth anniversary.

Just 2 fragrant Salil Chowdhury songs were enough to make 1974’s ‘Rajnigandha’ bloomUnnati Sharma – On Salil Chowdhury’s 26th death anniversary, ThePrint revisits Basu Chatterjee’s slice-of-life film on love and relationships, starring Amol Palekar and Vidya Sinha.

Documentary on writer, poet and lyricist Gopaldas Neeraj is out on YouTube – The Films Division production, directed by Gurbir S Grewal, features an interview with Neeraj, who died in 2018.

‘Raj Kapoor told me to say Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra’: Bollywood’s iconic villain on his innings Komal RJ Panchal – As Prem Chopra turns 86 (on 23 September, 2021), the veteran actor speaks about how Raj Kapoor gave him his memorable dialogue, the way negative roles impacted his life and how the villain gradually died out of Hindi cinema.

‘Khushboo’ — how Gulzar captured a strong woman who loves but won’t be a pushoverUnnati Sharma -At a time when women did not have much say in a lot of matters, especially when it came to relationships & matrimony, ‘Khushboo’ is a story of a woman exercising her choice. Based on Bengali novelist Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s — it is his 145th birth anniversary on 15 September — novel, Panditmoshai, Khushboo is set in a village.

Shabana Azmi: The most versatile actor in Hindi film industry who should be celebrated even more –  On Shabana Azmi’s 71st birthday, Sampada Sharma revisits her unique choices which balanced mainstream, as well as indie cinema perfectly.

The Greats: Rishi Kapoor is a memory call on his birthday in the form of list of some the Rishi Kapoor performances

Shailendra Sharma @ Golden Era of Bollywood has posted following memorial tribute posts:

Skateistan in Afghanistan – Films and Videos Documenting an Era Now Lost – Skateistan, is an international non-profit project that was originally started in Kabul in 2007 to encourage and teach skateboarding to children in Afghanistan, with a special concern about bringing in girls[1].….. Probably the best place to start would be a British-made documentary that won an Oscar/Academy award in 2020 –  Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (if you’re a girl)….. “Faranas’ Story” does not contain a lot of skateboard moves, but like the award-winning documentary, it does contain a lot of very moving observations (on the part of this girl) and speculation about the future that can be a bit heart-wrenching when looked at from the present moment.

In the series of articles on Sahir’s Songs of Romance, commemorating Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth centenary,  we now take up Sahir Ludhianvi’s Three Film Associations with Jaidev and Madan Mohan

September 2021 episode of Fading Memories, Unforgettable Songs takes up Shankar) Jaikishan and Hasrat Jaipuri’s Songs Fading From the Memory: 1962. Till now we have covered

1949 -1954 in 2017

1955 – 1957 in 2018

1958 – 1959 in 2019, and

1960 -1961 in 2020

Here is a collection of some vintage photographs, posted on BollywooDirect:

We now move on to posts on other subjects –

A dramatisation of the life and works of the writer Premchand – The Films Division documentary has been directed by PC Sharma and written by him and Madan Gopal.

Q&A in songs present different types of Q&A subjects.

One Movie, Many Lyricists lists ten movies where there are four or more lyricists penning songs

Why filmmaking for Shyam Benegal is both ‘a microscope and a telescope’Nandini Ramnath  – Retirement is the last thing on the mind of the 86-year-old director, who is working on a Sheikh Mujibur Rahman biopic.

How Zohra Segal, 48-year-old mother of two, reinvented herself in LondonRitu Menon  – Edited excerpts from a biography, Zohra! A Biography in Four Acts, reveal how the actor and dancer bounced back from her husband Kameshwar Segal’s death.

Zeenat Aman elated over Apple phone using her ‘Dum Maro Dum’ in their international ad But …. not sure Dev Saab would have approved of what Apple has done to Dum Maro Dum. In 2011, when Rohan Sippy & Pritam made a revamped version of it, Dev Saab was so angry. “This is sheer desecration.” he had said. {Here is the Apple i13 phone ad referred to here.]

Ten of my favourite male duets which feature two men singing: two actors (at least) onscreen, two playback singers contributing their voices to the song.

Boat Songs – Part I focused on the songs that had only the couple on the boat. Now, Part II takes songs with three or more, but not more than five or six people. Excluded here are the songs sung by the boatman or if the boat carrying the singing character is part of the group of boats..

The Paper, Ink and Pen Songs are ten songs that refer to writing equipment in the mukhda. The focus of this post is not letter writing. Thus, the reference to letter writing is purely incidental in some songs. The spotlight is on the ink, the surface chosen to write, the stylus/pen and in a song or two, the scribe.

From Bollywood Rewind – Sampada Sharma – Indian Express’s weekly column:

Micro View of Best Songs of 1944 @SoY continued with  Female Solo Songs this month too with Shamshad Begum, Sitara, Leela Chitnis ,   ,Nirmala Devi and other singers, Noor Jehan  and some more other singers.

SoY has presented Best songs of 1944: Wrap Up 3 for the wrap up on duets for 1944. The three duets jointly adjudged as Best for The Year are:

1Saawan ke baadlo unse ye ja kahoRattan – Karan Diwan, Zohrabai Ambalewali – D N Madhok – Nausahd Ali

3. O jaanewale balamwa, laut ke aa laut ke aa – Rattan – Shyam Kumar, Amirbai Karnataki – D N Madhok – Nausahd Ali

In continuation to our tradition of ending the post with a few songs of Mohammad Rafi, each one of which basically has a link with the topics discussed in the present post.

Naiyya Ka Meri Tu Hi Khavaiya – Zamana (1957) – Indeevar – Salil Chowdhury

Ya Keh De Hum Insaan Nahin, Ya Man Ja Tu Bhagwan Nahi – Chhaya (1961) – Rajinder Krishna – Salil Chowdhury

Other than these female solo songs for the year 1944, Kadambari has 6 solos and 2 chorus songs of Shanta Apte, but only one song seems to be available on YT. That one – Mere janam maran ke saathi chalo chita par so jaye – is covered in Memorable Songs of 1944, and one solo of Utapala SenJal Jane Do Is Duniya Ko – and  Main In PhooloN Ke Sang DoluN Re  by Vimla in Meri Bahen, too, are covered in Memorable Songs of 1944.

It is quite likely that, because of hardly knowledge of the Songs of 1944, during my search, I may have missed a few more solo songs of female singers. Recognizing this short coming, I conclude the present Micro View of (Best) Solo Songs of Female Singers for the year 1944 @SoY.

Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs

Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs – September 2021

Welcome to September 2021 edition of the IXth volume of Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs.

We recapitulate that the 2021 theme for the IXth volume of our Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs is Future of… as the basis for Creating and Maintaining Sustained Success.

Our topic for the discussion for the month is – The Future of Work.

How the World of Work is Changing – The workplace of today looks dramatically different to the workplace of yesteryear. Besides obvious technological changes – computers replacing typewriters and machines replacing people – social change has ushered more women into what used to be predominantly a man’s world.

To review the full study please visit – https://www.nextgeneration.ie/blog/2016/04/how-the-world-of-work-is-changing and also view the infographic presented there.

The 5 Trends Shaping the Future of Work – Jacob Morgan – Everything we know about the future of work is being shaped by five trends: globalization, technology, changing demographics, new behaviors, and mobility. For the first time these five trends are coming together to force organizations to change the way they think about how work gets done.

The big debate about the future of work, explains why economists and futurists disagree about the future of the labor market.

The future of work: is your job safe? | The Economist – This is the workforce of the future. Technology is transforming the world of work beyond all recognition creating groundbreaking opportunities. But it’s also eroding the rights of workers. Some even fear a dystopian jobless future. But are these anxieties overblown? How we react to this brave new world of work today will shape societies for generations to come. What are the forces shaping how people live and work and how power is wielded in the modern age? NOW AND NEXT reveals the pressures, the plans and the likely tipping points for enduring global change.

The Future of Work – A CQI Quality Futures Report talks about the effects of digitalisation in the workplace, helping every working person and the organisation to proactively address these issues in the relevant management strategies.

The downloadable copy of this report is available @ https://www.quality.org/future-of-work

Transitioning to the future of work and the workplace – A Deloitte survey (sponsored by Facebook) asked C-suite executives for their perspectives on the future of work. Their responses reveal six themes about the future workplace—and six lessons to help leaders ease the transition.

1: Pay attention to culture; help ensure leaders actively participate in its development and dissemination.

2: Companies should be proactive in creating greater transparency in communications and new systems, and policies and reinterpreting their corporate culture around digital in the workplace, or they risk losing employees, productivity, and, potentially, customers.

3: To keep Millennials, companies should place greater emphasis on nurturing and developing their people, creating interesting and purposeful work, and building an environment with career flexibility and tools that enable employees to collaborate and exchange ideas transparently.

4: Business benefits are real—this is about getting things done

5: Start the shift to new collaboration tools but help ensure workplace practices and employee expectations are aligned with the new capabilities that are available.

6: Leaders can often underestimate the benefits of social tools at work8 and need to be educated in how to use collaboration and business social tools for improved communication, collaboration, and connectivity.

The downloadable copy of the report is available @ https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/global/Documents/HumanCapital/gx-hc-us-cons-transitioning-to-the-future-of-work-and-the-workplace.pdf

Some more videos: for further study:

We now watch ASQ TV, wherein we refresh our viewpoints about–

  • Readying Yourself for Digital Transformation Initiatives – Richard Uphoff, Manager & Registered Principal Responsible (RPR), Vanguard, discusses skills needed for digital transformation, lessons learned from 25 years of challenging initiatives, and the need to learn how to learn.

We have taken up one article from Jim L. Smith’s Jim’s Gems this month

  • Enhancing Effectiveness – If you do not feel very effective or productive while at work, it can lead to a downward spiral. Chances are you can work far more effectively than you are now and put yourself into an upward trend.

One way is to take control of your time and manage it as well as possible. Try keeping a log for a week or two and track every minute of your day at work, then analyze it. Next, develop strategies for eliminating time traps and time wasters that are pulling you away from achieving your goals

Another good opportunity is to stay current with the technical innovations in your business or industry by reading latest books, periodicals, etc.

A third suggestion is to expand the network of people who can stimulate and support you.

‘From the Editor’ (of Quality Magazine) – by Darryl Sealand, we have-

  • Answers & Questions – We’ve all seen movies where the leader inspires his or her team with a moving speech and a call to action. But one characteristic is usually absent.

“Have you ever seen them ask any questions? They just know what to do,”

And that is important for all involved—leaders, followers, associates, suppliers, stakeholders. Asking questions and searching for feedback provides the confidence of knowing everyone is on the same page.

I look forward to your views / comments / inputs to further enrich the theme of Future of… as the basis for Creating and Maintaining Sustained Success.
